The disappearing of the rain made the soldiers yelled loud once more and Ling Chang looked around on the town which was almost like her home before the burning. Jiang Chen removed the last drops of rain from his forehead before gentle called “Jun Chen, are the clouds disappearing too or is it just the rain?” Jun Chen had been focus on the men yelling quickly ran up to his father and answered “They are leaving too, father” and without warning Jiang Chen yelled “The gods are with us, tonight we honour the death together with the weeding of my son” and even Jun Chen and Ling Chang had heard the yelling of their weeding before it still gave them the chills even it was a good feeling. The soldiers screaming even louder once more made it even worse than the first time. “What do you want us to do, father?” Jun Chen asked as the yelling became low once more and again he yelled out against the soldiers “Today, we will make a sea of stars by making lanterns for every single soul who has been lost in the war and everyone who wants to drink with me shall have such honour” and the men yelled once more before starting to run around to find paper for the lanterns.
Ling Chang felt the rush from the men cheering and started yelling with the men as tears of joy appeared in her eyes but did not fall. Jun Chen smiled at Ling Chang and decide to join the yelling too which made the town go even wilder while the enemy soldier just walked around like they were death. As the town went silence again and Jun Chen and Ling Chang got their hands back Jiang Chen started to walk against Mei Chen who had been watching it all from a distance. “I guess you forgot to introduce me to this lady, son” Jiang Chen said with a now hoarse voice. “Right, I am sorry father, this is Mei Chen, a young woman that Ling Chang saved while searching for you in town palace” Jun Chen said with pride in his voice over Ling Chang but his face quickly changed as a confused face appeared Jiang Chen face but as he was just about to open his mouth Mei Chen opened hers and replied “Yes, she is a wonderful fighter and I would not be able to meet you, my lord if she did not save me for three soldiers who did not have any sweet plans with me I am sure” and then she kissed the hand of Jiang Chen while she bowed well aware that he was blind. Jiang Chen face quickly turned happy again and he replied “Forgive me, my mind was somewhere else for a moment, I am glad that you are safe from the enemy as well” and then he walked on as rain stopped falling and the evening sun appeared.
The happiness in the voice was not mistaken and soon the men around them started yelling of joy too and it spread out thought the town like a wind. In the middle of it all stood Jun Chen in silence, not because he was not happy like his father but still his mind wondered what they was celebrating. He looked at Ling Chang who had noticed his silence and had turned silence herself but before they could say anything to each other the men around them noticed their silence and just as quick as the joy had spread a silence followed living Jiang Chen, the only one yelling for a while before he also turned quiet. “What is wrong? Did I do something bad?” Jiang Chen said as his hands tried to find his son again and when he reach Jun Chen opened his mouth gentle, making sure that he did not hurt his father. “Sorry father, I am happy but I am also sad as I am not sure what we are celebrating as we have lost many good men and the war is far from over” Jun Chen managed to say before Jiang Chen fingers made him quiet and close his mouth. “You are right, you are right my son… the war is far from over but you and Ling Chang still stand strong like pillars caring the whole world and I may be blind but my other senses tells me about your love” Ling Chang and Jun Chen looked confused at each other but kept silence as Jiang Chen continue “Yes, you love each other so much that even a blind man can see it, so the party tonight is not only to celebrate the death but to celebrate the living and love too so before more death happens let me weed you tonight.” Ling Chang was both happy and sad on the same time as she had lost everyone in her family but with the help of Jun Chen and emperor Jiang Chen, she would now have a new family. Ling Chang tried to find the words but instead she felt Jun Chen hand taken hers and they looked at each other for a while as Jiang Chen hand also reach them. In one thought and movement they held the hands up in the sky and without any words from them the joy and happiness returned in the town as the people started yelling once more.
Jiang Chen held a shaking hand out and said “Where are you standing son?” And the horrors of what had happened to him appeared on the faces on all the nearby people. “I am here, father” Jun Chen answered calm while he took the shaking hand and place on his head so his blind father could feel him. “What they did do to you?” Jun Chen calm voice was gone and anger had taken its place while tears ran down his check. “I will spare you all the details but we have to find a way to remove the pest from our grounds” Jiang Chen said as he check the face of Jun Chen for any injuries and a small smile appeared on his face when he knew that his son was whole. “What about the Ling Chang? Is the daughter of my most trusted general, is she still alive too” Jiang Chen said and Jun Chen did not answer but instead he took his father’s hand and moved it over to Ling Chang who gave Lei to a soldier to keep him standing while she allowed the hand to play her face. “Yes, my lord. I am alive as well and ready to serve you just as my father before” Ling Chang said as the hand started touching her and the smile of Jiang Chen grew even bigger. “I know the war is far from over but let us celebrate tonight” Jiang Chen yelled out in joy.
Suddenly a soldier came running to Jun Chen and broke in conversation “My lord, I have good news” the soldier said quickly and as it was first time for Jun Chen to be called my lord, he did know what to reply at first so Lei broke the silence for the waiting man. “Do not wait for our new lord to wake up… speak up this good news you bring” The soldier looked confused at first before he almost yelled out the news “We have found your father, emperor Jiang Chen” Jun Chen broke in “Yes, I know he is laying somewhere back here, I still have not gotten a chance to see him” he said and tears started to appear in his eyes. “My lord, that is not your father, some of the other soldiers who was searching the palace have found him and they are bring him here as fast as they can” The soldier continued in a more calm voice. “Do not lie to me, I know I watched Gang Chen kill him in front of me” Jun Chen snapped as tears started to run from his eyes but before the soldier continue a known voice broke in. “Are you saying I am death, my son?” Jiang Chen said with a dry voice. Ling Chang turned against the voice and the body could only be the one of his father but how was this possible, now two of the three ghosts has been alive and he worried that the last one was alive too so before he continued to let the emotions control him, he yell “check the body of Hui Wen and makes sure he gets all help he needs if he is alive” before Jiang Chen dry voice continued “Is this how you greet your father after so long time alone, in darkness and any knowledge if you were alive or death” Jun Chen bowed to his father as the first tears hit the wooden floor and the other men around them bowed too. “I am sorry father, but I had a vision of your ghost after your lookalike was killed by Gang Chen, sorry I failed you father”
Funanai, the town was a mess and even that the rain have been falling heavy since the fighting, it still have not put out all the fires but instead most of the blood had disappeared making it look like the death was sleeping. Jun Chen looked over the market before closing his eyes and whispered “I will revenge them all father, and become a great leader like you and our family before” He kept his eyes closed and enjoyed the silence the rain brought. Ling Chang had been busy helping the remaining resistance as for unknown reasons the many enemy soldiers had lost their will or mood to fight after Gang Chen had been killed by Mei Chen doing the fight against Jun Chen. Jun Chen prick up his ears as the silence from the rain was broken by horses traveling thought the mud. “Prepare yourself” He yelled as he look around to figure out where the sounds came from but it was Ling Chang who caught them first. “There they are” she yelled and pointed as the first horse entered the market from the south, which luckily was one of the more defendable place. The ridders stopped and a lone ridder continued to ride against the centre and Jun Chen quickly sent signals to the men to be ready for anything bad. The ridder was soon as within ear reach and Jun Chen yelled “Who goes there?” And ridder stopped the horse in the same, to step off it. “Don’t your eyes tell me who I am, Jun Chen?” the ridder yelled back before taking off the hood and revealed a man. A smile of Jun Chen face appeared and he yelled back “Zhihao, I though you was lost doing the campaign of Gang Chen” and Jun Chen signalled to his men that all was good. “Gang Chen took us by surprise but we still managed to save around 50 men, most of the injured by now” Zhihao yelled back while he looked down at the death people laying everywhere. The two men hugged. “Looks like you had a party without us, where are you father so we talk about reclaim the country” Zhihao said leaving Jun Chen in silence as for a moment he had forgotten all about the death of his father. “I…” Jun Chen tried to say the words but they died on his tongue so he closed his eyes and tried again “I.. I am the leader now that my father is here no more” and the smile on both mens face disappeared and Zhihao replied calmly “I am sure you father will be proud of you as a leader of this great country when we are done with those evil kids” Ling Chang walked slowly against the two men as Lei need help to get around now. “Lei, I thought you was also among the death” Zhihao said and the smiled returned again even it was not at the same hight as before. “I won’t be death before the dragons comes for me, haha” Lei replied gentle.

See you soon, thanks for following and have a nice day.
Laughter came from Gang Chen but Jun Chen did not seem impressed and yelled “If you are so strong and powerful why don’t you show it” Jun Chen without revealing any fear for the second sword that Gang Chen had gotten. “Please take the bait” Jun Chen whispered and as he had only finished the line before Gang Chen had taken the bait and attack Jun Chen just as planed and in the next he kicked Gang Chen who only just managed to throw the second sword away before it would have cut himself doing landing and instead the sword landed near Lei, who took it and yelled “Maybe we can fight more fair now” before he started cheering even more his friends as he turned around and watched Ling Chang’s fight. Ling Chang and the man had started dancing around each other just as Jun Chen and Gang Chen in the main fight and soon the men cheering had formed another circle, making it look like an eight instead.Continue reading
In the meantime back at the fight between Jun Chen and Gang Chen, there was still no blood in sight but Gang Chen had noticed the fight between his man and Ling Chang and wondered if he could use it for something. “Your girlfriend is a fighter too” Gang Chen yelled to Jun Chen who turned his sight away from the fight just as gang Chen expected. “Yeah she is good” Jun Chen replied while watching her movements against the man without thinking that he was still in a fight. He felt a pain starting in his left shoulder and the pain reawaken him to his own fight. “You are a cheater” Jun Chen yelled as he forced Gang Chen’s sword away who was laughing too much to keep pushing. “I did not do anything, it was all your own fault” Gang Chen finally said as they were watching each other again. Jun Chen was tried off his laughter so he attacked without thinking much of his new injury and the attack had such power that Gang Chen had to stop laughing and block the attack but still his own sword made him get a small cut on his right arm. “Well, well, well. Now we are both are bleeding” Gang Chen said and pushed Jun Chen with his free hand before attacking on his own but Jun Chen was more ready this time and they started to take turns in attacking and defending without any more blood. Suddenly Gang Chen yelled “Sword” and a sword flew thought the air and Jun Chen managed just to step away from it but instead Gang Chen just caught it and was now having two swords making it harder for Jun Chen to defend himself but he was far from done anyway.
Ling Chang is too focused on the arrow in Lei leg to watch Jun Chen fight. “Does it hurt Lei?” She says as she starts tugging in the arrow and even without words his face tells everything. “I am sorry, but we have to get it out or you might die by the blood loose” Lei closes his eyes and replied dry “Yes I know” He opens his eyes again and points as a wooden stick not far from them. “Give me that and be ready with some bandages” Lei says like it was the most simple thing in the world. Ling Chang thinks for a moment as even she was the one with the idea about taking the arrow out, she is now have second thoughts. “Ling Chang, please, you have to… I know you are having second thoughts about me now but please I do not want to meet my wife just yet” Lei says and Ling Chang looks at him and nods. She jumps up and runs to the wooden stick just as Jun Chen attacks Gang Chen, who is too quick on the now wet wooden floor, but luckily Gang Chen does not manage to prepare his own attack before Jun Chen is ready again. Ling Chang reaches the wooden stick but as she is about to walk back against Lei, a man is blocking her way by pointing a sword directly at her. “Do you remember me?” The man says cold but the dark sky makes it impossible for Ling Chang to see the man’s face, making her just reply even colder “No, and let me pass” The man starts laughing “I am sorry but I know you” and a lightning light revealed who he was. Ling Chang pretended she did not remember him and tried to force her way to Lei who was still laying on the ground waiting for the wood so they could start getting the arrow out but the sword came closer to skin. The man continued “My name does not matter but I was the one who lost the brother to your old fool and since he is laying death down there I want to fight you” the man said and Ling Chang knew that she was not getting past the man no matter what she did except for fighting him so she threw the wood to Lei and turned her focus 100% at the man and replied “Are you man enough to fight a girl or do you just kill me like a boy” The man face turned angry but he quickly calm before he pulled forward another sword and handed it over to Ling Chang who had not chance to refuse. Ling Chang grabbed it quickly and just in time, she took two steps back as in the next the man attacked with the other sword. “You are no man” Ling Chang yelled but the man just laughed and lunch another attack. This time Ling Chang blocked the attack and the sound of more swords sing, made a few men turn around and started cheering around them too.
Jun Chen looks at Ling Chang before yelling back “Do you accept or not?” And Gang Chen just smiles while answering taunting “I would be honoured fighting the emperor’s only son and the last one in the royal bloodline but be warned I cannot promise you what I will do to your girl if you lose” Jun Chen raises his sword and then enemy soldiers forms a road all the way to Gang Chen and the throne. Ling Chang helps up Lei and starts walking behind Jun Chen together with the remaining soldiers. They reach the throne which is moved and soon a circle appears for the two men to fight in. “Are you sure this is a good idea” Ling Chang ask Jun Chen who does not answer and without even looking at her he just yells to Gang Chen “I am ready when you are” Gang Chen swings his sword to clean it from the blood of the two men he already has killed and slowly the two men starts dancing around on the wooden floor. Suddenly a lightning crosses the sky and rain drops starts falling heavy, Ling Chang looks up and the sun which had been on the sky doing the entire battle was now gone behind big dark clouds, making it almost feel like night time. The two men keeps walking around and focusing on each like nothing else matters and as the thunder from the lightning above them starts rumbles the first attacks are happening but neither of the men unable to break thought so instead the men around the starts cheering.
Ling Chang seat near Hui Wen’s death body with closed eyes as she was praying to the gods to make room for him up there and as she finished she started to wondered what would happen next as once more she was alone in the world, except for Jun Chen but that was different and not family. She knew that they had a fight to win first but still she was dreaming about days with peace between people. Suddenly she felt a hand on her shoulder as she is about to look up find out the owner she is pulled away from Hui Wen’s body. She starts twisting and turning to get free from the hand as it is not letting go. She opens her eyes and gets ready to scream but her voice dies when two arrows hits Hui Wen’s body, near the place she was just seating and her eyes follows the hand up and sees Jun Chen trying to protect her from the arrows. “Get up” Jun Chen yells and helps her up standing as more arrows starts flying thought the air. Ling Chang and Jun Chen looked at each other as they knew they had to do something or the lives of Hui Wen and Jiang Chen has been wasted for nothing. Suddenly an arrow hits Lei and the scream of pain, makes Jun Chen decide to do the unthinkable. “Are you alright Lei?” Jun Chen asks and even in pain Lei manages to nod as the arrow has only hit is left leg. Jun Chen looks at Ling Chang and without any words she knows what he has planned and starts yelling of him “No, No, Not you too, please stop, Don’t do it” but he turns around, lets go of her hand and starts walking away from her while Lei manage to keep her from follow him. “Please stop, I love you” Ling Chang yells loudly and for a moment Jun Chen stops and look back at her just to reply “Yes, I love you too but I have to do this or we will never have a chance together.” And then he turns back around as Ling Chang eyes gets full of tears because she fears the worst. “Stop your men and fight me Gang Chen” Jun Chen yells loudly against Gang Chen who quickly makes his men stop firing. “Did someone hear a bird sing?” Gang Chen yells back while some men around him prepares new arrows and others starts laughing. Jun Chen looks directly at him and yells again “I said stop your men and fight me Gang Chen or are you the bird?” Louder than before and a soldier continues laughing which makes Gang Chen return his rage and stands up from the throne instantly. “Do not push me or you will end up like this” and pulls forward his sword and penetrates the laughing soldiers, making the entire town silence except for the soldier drowning in his own blood. Jun Chen does not say anything and in the next Gang Chen starts cutting upwards, almost splitting the soldier into two instead of just pulling it out like a sane person. Ling Chang looks away as she fears something more bloody will happen and rightfully so is Gang Chen almost not done, with the first soldier before he penetrates the next one with his sword while he yells loudly “You got to teach them a lesson or you will never be the leader of anything” Jun Chen looks around on the men around and many of them are having fear in their eyes but before he can yell anything back Gang Chen spilts the man thought the guts so intestine and blood covers the ground. “This is your end, Jun Chen and after I am done with you, you sweet little girlfriend will be all alone in the world and I am sorry to be the one letting you know but the world is not as safe as your father told you as a child”
Jun Chen looked at Ling Chang and at Hui Wen’s death body. “I promise I will stay calm no matter who or what I am fighting” Jun Chen said and for a second it seemed like that Hui Wen lips moved and smiling but when Jun Chen closed and opened his eyes the smile was gone and he knew that he was gone. Ling Chang could not hold the tears back any longer and even that she could feel the rage inside her like the other times that she needed it, she kept it inside and prevented her eyes from becoming red as blood but the powers inside her was stronger than before so she suddenly started shaking: Jun Chen noticed it quickly and knew he had to do something to calm her down but as he held out a hand, Ling Chang pulled her sword and instead of taking the hand she attacked and only a quick move from Jun Chen prevented him from losing it. “Ohh, the young lady is on fire” Gang Chen yelled from his throne and kicked the death body of Jiang Chen to make her even more raged, making Jun Chen trying to think fast. Gang Chen could see the kicking made Ling Chang loose more and more of her focus not being angry so he started kicking Jiang Chen even more while yelling to Jun Chen to keep him from thinking. “I would not stand near her, she seems like a volcano ready to explode at anytime now” he yelled loudly and mocking. Ling Chang attacked Jun Chen who only managed to block the attack by pure luck and the soldiers forming the circle around them started to worry for their lives even that they was still busy fighting against Gang Chen’s men. “Your girlfriend is not the sweet girl you expected” Gang Chen yelled expecting Jun Chen to loose his ideas even more but instead a smile appeared on Jun Chen face and yelled back to Gang Chen “Thanks” and while Gang Chen’s turned from the happy face to the confused face, Jun Chen blocked another attack from Ling Chang and with out a word to her, he kissed her on the lips. At first Ling Chang tried to escape the kiss but just as she was able to guide the sword against Jun Chen, she relaxed and returned his kissing. “Noooooooo, you was supposed to kill each other, not become lovers” Gang Chen finally yelled as Jun Chen and Ling Chang stopped kissing. “Kill them, kill them all now” Gang Chen yelled and pointed at some bowmen, who started aiming at first before they stopped and asked “What about our own men?” And now it was Gang Chen’s face and body which was full of rage and he yelled as high he could “Do I look like one who cares, kill them all now” and arrows starts flying thought the air, hitting both good and bad people.
Ling Chang could feel the rage in her body suddenly disappeared and soon the red glow from her eyes disappeared too. In one movement she was fighting and in the next she had closed her eyes as she started to screaming loud in a mix of pain and horror when suddenly a silence followed. Ling Chang opened her eyes to figure out why the silence and noticed that no one was moving like they all had turned to ice. She walked around between the men slowly and watched one bloody fight after another before she quickly moved and reached the fight Ling Chang was fighting. “Please wake up” she almost silence said as she worried that the voice would destroy him but nothing happened to him or any of the soldiers. She looked around and even Gang Chen on the farthest away she could see were frozen except for her and the mix of being alone and the horrors of what she had done, made tears starting to run down her checks. She was all out in tears, not paying attention to her surroundings at all when suddenly a cold hand touched her and she almost flew up with the sword pulled and ready to fight but quickly removed it when she noticed it was Jun Chen who had returned to life. “What happened?” Jun Chen asked as they hugged and warmed each other up. Ling Chang looked at him but had troubles finding the words but managed to say a single word “Sorry”, making Jun Chen quickly hold her closer and reply “It is not your fault” and just as the words had left his mouth another know voice replied “You are right, I am the one, making this” a floating Hui Wen said which at first made Ling Chang want to scream but his calm voice made her keep quiet. “I just want to say that I am so proud of you two” Hui Wen continued and Jun Chen wanted to say something but Hui Wen stopped him “No talking, just yet. I am also happy that you have found each other both in training and in love and yes, I knew all the time so next time, don’t try to hide it” Hui Wen body became more and more transparent for each word leaving his mouth. “You have my blessing and now go with peace” Hui Wen said and as the last word left his mouth he was gone and before Ling Chang and Jun Chen could do nothing, they were suddenly back at their places fighting like nothing had happened. Ling Chang Looked around to find Hui Wen and found him laying in the mud, bleeding from his back surrounded by four enemy soldiers and she knew what she had to do. She started to fight her way against the body and just as she reach the body, Jun Chen was there too. They killed the soldiers around his body like they was wheat on a field and they started to stop the bleedings as Lei appeared with some men and started yelling out commands. “Men, form a circle around us and keep the line to split up the enemy” He yelled and the nearby men quickly started to doing what they were told. Lei turned against Jun Chen and Ling Chang as he wanted to say something but Gang Chen broke in “One old foul death and buried, and four left, this is becoming the best day in my life” he said mocking and laughing making Jun Chen prompted yelled back “He is not death yet” which just made Gang Chen laugh even louder and more mocking. “Who said that I was talking about Hui Wen?” He said as he held a small break from laughing and pointed at Jiang Chen who appeared normal at first before blood appeared on his throat and when he tried to screaming his mouth filled with blood as he fell to the ground as a doll. Jun Chen could feel the sadness grow inside him but instead of giving Gang Chen the pleasure, he just yelled back “You will pay for every death, you will cost today” and Jun Chen was about to run off from Hui Wen and Ling Chang when a hand stopped him. “Let go of me, Ling Chang” Jun Chen almost yelled without turning around but the hand did not let go and Jun Chen turned around to force the hand to let go when he noticed that it was Hui Wen. “I am sorry my boy, but cannot let you go before you promise me you won’t let the rage inside you, control you” Jun Chen wanted to yell but a calmness filled his body faster and without any words Hui Wen released and Jun Chen was free once more. Ling Chang smiled to see that Hui Wen was alive but the happiness was short as in the next he closed his eyes and stopped breathing.
He turned around when a cold feeling started to fills body and he fell to the ground while he tried to remove the object which had started the cold and to his fear it was a sword. He cut his fingers on the sword, making him try to look up and tried to scream for help but his mouth ran fast full of blood as the sword keep going through his body and soon he felt the handle reaching his back and forced him to the ground. He gave up on getting a sight of the sun a last time and feel to the ground exhausted when a pair of feet suddenly appeared in front of him and with the last energy he managed to get his head up before the energy was out once more but instead of falling back to the ground instantly a pair of hands grab his head and a known taunt voice said “Now I only need to kill two more, old fool” Hui Wen looked at the person and even with blurred sight he knew who his killer was but his mouth was too full of blood and instead of yelling for help he spit the blood right in the face and said ice cold “You will never win” and just as the words had left his mouth the hands disappeared and he hit the ground hard before the sword from his back was gone too and the pain disappeared before he closed a last time. The killer clean the sword and face before lowly said “They would not know what hit them” and just as fast the attack had happen, the killer had left the screen.
Hui Wen tried to make an opening so more soldiers could help him and Lei with the division of soldier but every time it seem liked he got it open and their soldiers started to appear they was swiftly force back by a new wave of enemy soldiers and in despair he yelled “Ling Chang were are you” and tried to look after her but she was no were in sight. Sudddenly an opening appeared in from him and he prepared himself for fight but instead of an great enemy, Ling Chang was suddenly in front of him and he could see her eyes was as red as the morning sun. The sight made him almost shallow his tongue as fear grew inside him if she had gotten so much taste for blood now that she had turned evil. Her eyes looked at him like she was aiming for any weak spots in his armour and without a warning, she suddenly started running against him, making him not being able to think twice so he tried to point at her with his sword but it was already too late as in the next she was past him and a scream was heard. He turned slowly around and a now death soldier was covering the ground with his blood. “Sorry, master” Ling Chang said calmly like the killing of the now death man had been a fly and before Hui Wen could say thanks, she ran on and the blood on the sword was had not disappeared in the wind before another kill had happened. Hui Wen shocked his head, what I am going to do with her before he noticed that the opening was filled by the resistance now and he could continued his plan.
A heavy wind appears and blows away much of the smoke for a while just for the group to see Gang Chen in front of lots of soldiers. A laughter breaks out from Gang Chen. “Do you really think, the four of you can beat my army?” Making Hui Wen step forward from and away from the others. Ling Chang tries to stop him but he gets free from her grasp and yelled back with not single fear in his voice. “First step of preventing a trap is knowing it is there and release it” before pulling his sword and swings it around. Gang Chen laughter continues loudly but is interrupted by a scream of pain from a nearby soldier. “What happens back there?” Gang Chen yells after his laughter has stopped and another soldier is hit by another arrow before someone can answer. “What kind of tricks are this, Hui Wen” Gang Chen yells and now Hui Wen is the one laughing. “Did you really think I would walk into your trap and risk the life of crown prince without backup?” Ling Chang notices a shadow in the smoke behind them and smiles as the shadow turns into a familiar face. “Lei? Is that you?” Ling Chang ask while raising her sword to be sure it is not an ambush and the man just nods while he puts a finger up to his mouth and soon more men appears in the shadows. Gang Chen does not need much time to think and yells “Attack and kill them all but keep Jiang Chen alive. I want him to hear the death screams of his son” and Hui Wen turns around against his own army and yells “Ready?” And a loud scream returns to him and as he looks forward once more the first enemy soldiers appears and the sword starts swing against the nearest man. Ling Chang turns around against the soldiers too before taking a quick look at Jun Chen whose eyes tells her more than words could do and she turns again Mei Chen but she is gone from the circle and Ling Chang fears her feelings about her being a traitor is true but before she is able to get it confirmed she watched Mei Chen near Hui Wen already killing her first enemy. Ling Chang can feel the mix of rage and jealousy grows inside her and things turns red in front of her, making it easier for her to see though the smoke. Ling Chang attacks and kills the first two men while more and more soldiers appears behind her and she is no longer alone on the battlefield while the death screams are filling the air. Gang Chen laughter is heard from his throne as the ground becomes more and more red from the blood of the death men. Ling Chang fights the best she has learn and the red sight makes her rage grow even wilder than before and soon she have already killed 10 enemies.In the meantime is Jun Chen trying to reach his father on the execution platform but the men, he is fighting is dying just as fast so he is quickly surrounded. “Got you now” a soldiers says laughing as men forms a ring around him and blocks every way of escape but Jun Chen is cold as ice and instead of yelling for help he just starts laughing instead and before the soldier can ask why he is killed by Ling Chang who has watched the mess. “Kill, kill them all” Ling Chang yells in a blood rage while Jun Chen use the change to get on the platform, but as kills the executioner and unties the man about to get executed, the man just picks up the axe from the chopping block nearby. “I am here to save you father” Jun Chen tries to say as the man launches the first attack with the big as and the man just starts laughter which is mixed with the laughter from Gang Chen who can see the action from his throne. “Did you really think it would be that easy?” Gang Chen yells as two soldiers behind him brings forward a man who can only be Jiang Chen. Jun Chen wants to yell something back but the man attacks again and the axe lands right next to Jun Chen feet that he jumps to be sure that he is not hit. “Leave my father alone” Jun Chen yells as he lands safely on the ground again which makes Gang Chen laugh even more and reply “I would not worry about your old man, I will not kill him before you have been killed as like I said I want him to hear every death scream from you and your friends.” Jun Chen blocks an attack from the man with the axe and attacks back but even that the man is small and the axe is back, he is still fast enough to move out of the attack. The man attacks once more and this time he manage to cut some of Jun Chen’s clothes, making Jun Chen yell of annoyance and strike back instantly and this time the man is not fast enough to move and the sword penetrated the man’s chest like butter and he fell to the ground with the axe still in hand. Jun Chen expected fear to appear in Gang Chen’s voice but instead a calm voice continued yelling “Wow, you killed another of my men… I still have another million soldiers waiting for you so do you really think you have what it takes” The calmness bothered Jun Chen but new enemies did not give him much time to think or reply Gang Chen with other than the sounds of sword hitting each other with power. In the meantime had Jun Chen and Lei together with other from the resistance reached the centre of the market and they were now trying to break the enemy into two groups, so they could break the moral of the men in the small group so they had fewer men to focus on, but the amount of enemy soldiers made it a almost impossible task.
Now I am finally done chapter 10 and cannot wait to get started on chapter 11 and the remaining 5 chapters incl. chapter 11. Have not yet reached 60.000 words yet but it is getting closer and closer as I am at 57686 words now. I have decide to change the title of chapter 11 to ‘Rescue’ instead of ‘Power of love’ as I felt the other was too long, maybe I will change others too. Thanks for following me so far and would not have a done it without the help I have gotten from so many people.
P.s I forgot to change date for expected finished date yesterday so done it now as I finished chapter 10 and it is 12. September.
See you soon, thanks for following and have a nice day.
“What are you doing, Jun Chen” Ling Chang said almost crying and tried to get the attention of Jun Chen. She could feel the sword playing her skin even that Hui Wen was doing his best to keep it from hurting her. “Leave Ling Chang alone” Hui Wen yelled and without warning was Jun Chen attacking but even that Hui Wen had been seemly defenceless he still managed to block the attack and force Jun Chen away from Ling Chang who quickly stood up. Her eyes was red from the tears that had started to run faster and faster and suddenly Jun Chen came back to himself. “Sorry, sorry, sorry” He said as the sword fell to the ground and Hui Wen Lowed the sword before asking “What happened to you” and Jun Chen looked at them for a moment in silence before he answered. “I just dreamt of my father and he was not my father… He killed us both and guess my feelings for me made me hurt you… Sorry, sorry, sorry” Hui Wen looked at him and returned his sword to the sheath before returning to the sight post to make sure that they were still safe. Ling Chang bowed down and picked up Jun Chen’s sword before handing him it gentle while the tears slowly became fewer. They hugged each other for a while before another female voice broke in “So this is your sister?” And Jun Chen who just thought they had been alone the three of them pulled his sword once more and pointed it against the woman before he lowered it once more when he noticed that it was the lady Mei Chen from the time of searching after Ling Chang. “Mei… Mei Chen?” He managed to say while he tried to make his sword enter the sheath. Mei Chen just nodded and Ling Chang could feel the tension between them so she quickly broke in before they had any chance to continued their talk. “I found her inside the palace, if you remember sending me inside that” Jun Chen said but Jun Chen was too focused on Mei Chen to answered her so Ling Chang continued a bit higher “We searched the palace and ended up figure out that your father has already been taking to the execution grounds” and the rough speaking made a drop of blood fall form her check. Jun Chen finally noticed her speaking and answered “Sorry, I am still confused from the dream” while trying to sound like it was not Mei Chen who had taken his focus. But Ling Chang being a girl knew it was a small lie so she turned around a bit annoyed before continuing “I presume that you have meet before so I do not have to introduce you to each other” she replied angry, making Jun Chen quickly understand what he had done wrong so he hold around her and an answered quickly and honest “Sorry, I won’t keep it a secret anymore, but I meet her when Hui Wen and I was searching for you when you was gone” Ling Chang could not decide if she wanted to be angry or not so she turned around and before she knew it was Jun Chen playing her cheek and at first she was thinking about kissing him but the words form his mouth made her understand what was happening. “Sorry for hurting you” Jun Chen said as he cleaned the blood of her cheek and Ling Chang could feel the pain form the wound as she noticed the blood but being in sight of another made her stop herself from screaming. “Don’t it hurt” Jun Chen asked and Ling Chang just shocked her head trying to hide the pain. Hui Wen who had been focusing on keeping their place a secret suddenly asked “Are you ready to go?” Making Jun Chen stop cleaning Ling Chang and return to focus. “Yes” he replied but before he could pull his sword was Mei Chen breaking the focus “I know I am a woman but are you sure you know what you are doing” she said gentle, making both Jun Chen and Hui Wen listen. “What do you mean” Hui Wen asked gentle from his spot without looking against her. “Gang Chen has been burning the town down like a spoiled child and I am sure that the execution grounds won’t just be him and a few soldiers but his entire army, maybe more if he has gotten any backup” Mei Chen continued and the words had even made Hui Wen turn away from his spot against her before replying “first step of preventing a trap is knowing it is there and release it” Hui Wen said and looked a bit cold at Mei Chen before warming up a bit and replying “What do you know that we don’t” Mei Chen smiled before kneeling on the ground and started to draw the market place on the ground. “This is the market place” She started before drawing soldiers and the execution grounds. “This is where their will be guards and here we will find Jiang Chen if he still are alive by the time we are ready to strike” Mei Chen continued before Ling Chang broke in as she was a bit jealous “How do you know those things?” Ling Chang asked and Mei Chen turned against her and smiled once more “You was the one who saved me from the men inside the palace, but do you really think that they was only going to play with me?” Mei Chen asked before answering the question herself without giving Ling Chang a chance to answer “No, I am a spy… trying to save the emperor just as you are” making the other looks at her with big eyes but no one said anything, making her continued the drawing. “This is were Gang Chen and his most trusted men will be… we have to kill him and his leaders to destroy the army he has or we don’t have a chance to save Jiang Chen… I suggest that we comes from the southern entrance to the market and this way take them by surprise” Hui Wen nods and points out the fewer gaurds on Mei Chen drawing. “Yes, that will be a great idea… we will have a big change to do great damage while saving Jiang Chen” He said just as a male scream is heard from outside the house. In the next the door hit ground with a loud slam and in comes 6 soldiers “In the name of new emperor, hereby under arrest” a soldier yells but instead of just giving up Jun Chen and Hui Wen pulls their swords and stands in front of the women while ruining the drawing. “No” Hui Wen yells back to the soldier who laughing pulls his sword and replies “Good thing, the emperor does not care if you are brought to him death or alive” the remain soldiers pulls their swords too and soon the fight is starting. Ling Chang pulls her sword and points at Mei Chen “I knew you was a traitor” who quickly replies “I am not… Look out” and in the next a soldier attack Ling Chang but Ling Chang is already raging and kills the solider before he can strike. “Thanks” Ling Chang manages to say to Mei Chen who watch her with great terror before Ling Chang attacks another soldier like she was a soldier herself. The small room makes it impossible for anyone to escape and Ling Chang kills the next one by making fly into the fire and soon the fight is much more even. Jun Chen kills a soldier himself while Hui Wen deals with the rest before yelling “We need to attack to save the emperor now or he will be death before we get a second chance” Ling Chang returns to normal and the four of them starts walking against the markets place. Mei Chen is both amazed and scared of what just happened to Ling Chang so she quietly ask her “What happened back there?” And at first Ling Chang is confused before she gets the question and replies “Oh… my father wanted a boy so he trained me but some times a rage take over and make me able to defend myself even against the most terrifying enemies” Mei Chen makes big eyes but keeps her calm. “Great, guess I am the only defenceless one here” she replied which make Ling Chang laugh as they continue walking against the markets place. As they reach the market they spilt up to kill the three guards form Mei Chen’s map but there is no one there and the smoke from the burning houses makes it almost impossible to see the execution grounds. They are back together and Ling Chang is the first to speak again “The guard was not there” and before Jun Chen and Hui Wen can answer her a loud yelling voice breaks in. “Welcome friends, welcome to your death” and they makes a small circle around Mei Chen while trying to figure out where the voice came from.
Soon a voice appeared the darkness and as the light reappeared Ling Chang was above him. “Thank goodness, you are awake now… we started to worry” Ling Chang said with tears in her eyes. “Keep your voices down” Hui Wen said as Jun Chen woke up even more but even the know face of Ling Chang could not keep him silence and he yelled loudly “Get away from me you demon” and before anyone could move or say anything he flew up and pulled his sword fast. As he landed on the ground again Ling Chang was having his sword as her face and a foot on her chest. Jun Chen was the first to react and he quick placed his sword between Ling Chang and Jun Chen’s sword even he knew it was making him vulnerable instead. “Let go off the sword and relax Jun Chen” Hui Wen yelled without caring about their cover. “Stay away, olding and leave this demon to me” Jun Chen yelled back while Ling Chang started crying as she had finally awoken from the quick attack that had happen.
