A wind blew thought the forest and a simple taste of smoke in it told Hui Wen that he had to leave the place now and not waste a single second in reaching the emperor’s palace. He sat up on the horse and started riding slowly between the death bodies making sure that everything did reveal how many who attacked. As he reached the last body, he made sure that Ling Chang were laying gentle on the horse while his mind worried about his promised of training her after so much death from the little girl. The birds in the forest slowly started to sing as the sun started raising in the east and it was red a blood, telling its own story about the attacks of the night and day before but other than that it seemed like it would become a nice day.
Hui Wen walked past them like they were air and the commander started laughing loud and then he whispered into the ear of Ling Chang. “I lied” and slowly he started to made the sword come closer to her neck, making the medallion was the first to be hit and fall to the ground. The next was a drop of blood which ruined the perfect clean sword. Ling Chang closed her eyes awaiting her fate but the time stopped and when she opened them again she could see Hui Wen try to break free of the men and a blood drop hit the ground below her. Suddenly something awoke inside her and without knowing how she managed to escape the grasp of the commander and bend down to reach the family sword on the ground and penetrate the commander. The time started running again and the commander caught up some blood which hit Ling Chang right in the face which made her eyes white but instead of fainting, she turned against the soldiers who had captured Hui Wen and attacked them with such speed and power that they were all death before the first man hit the ground. She looked around for more enemies but they were all alone again. “Are you alright?” Hui Wen managed to ask after he had calmed down after her surprise attack but Ling Chang just pointed the sword at him like he was someone evil too. Suddenly her eyes turned normal again for a short while before she fell to the ground without a single sound, leaving the sword standing mighty while the blood mixed with the bloody ground. Hui Wen looked around to see if anyone had survived her attack before running against her and held his ear at her chest to figure out if she were still alive. A smile appeared on his face as he heard the heart beating normally but his eyes was scared as his mind was now fear what could happen if he trained her. He whistled and soon the horse was back at his side and he patted the horse gentle before he bended down to picked up Ling Chang, her sword and the medallion.
“Take them” a man yelled while more people arrived at the screen and soon there were so men that Ling Chang could not see Hui Wen. “He killed our men, so take good care of him” a man yelled before a scream was heard. It was Hui Wen who had started to defeat himself against the attackers. “I said take good care of him” the man repeated himself before pointing at the horse “Some one take care of that horse too and do not mind the girl… her injuries is doing our job” he said almost laughing, making Ling Chang try to spit in his face but he were to far so the drops just fell like rain drops. Another scream was heard and a few soldiers looked around and directly at the commander with scary eyes before he again forced them to attack Hui Wen. “Stop that man at once” he said not caring much about his men and their fear but his voice had barely died out before a new scream was heard. He pushed some men away and held his head down to lIng Chang who were still laying on the ground. The soldiers had killed the fire so she had started to clench teeth of cold, but the commander did not care much about her feelings. “Do you know the expression, if you want to do something properly, you have to do it yourself” the man sad with a cold eye on Ling Chang but before Ling Chang could answer the man he pulled her up from the ground and Ling Chang was about to scream of pain when she noticed his sword against her neck. Tears started to run down her checks and she fears it was the end of everything. “Stop resisting old foul or I will kill this beautiful young lady” He said in a hard voice leaving no doubt of his plans. Ling Chang could hear the fighting stop, making hear tears run even faster and it did not get any better when she could see walking closer to her and the man with soldiers ready to strike him down around him.
“My father was never an assassin, he was the emperor’s most trusted general and the dragon medallion is going to get me inside anywhere” Ling Chang said before Hui Wen managed to calm his horse and hold a hand around her mouth. “I know that, but the rest of the normal world don’t need to know that especially now when you have enemies” he whispered into her ear before letting go of her mouth. Ling Chang felt stupid now that she had been yelling of him and was about to said sorry when the bushes started moving and in the next the small camp was full of people, and not just people but enemy soldiers.
Ling Chang looked at him as he had not answered her question on how he knew her without knowing her in person but she was starting to feel safe around him, so she started to tell her the story from the beginning of the day all the way to waking up the second time but she avoided the dreams. They were still too tough to talk about so instead she just pretended she had been sleeping the entire time. The man was silence for a while after the last words of her story had left her mouth and then he stood up with a quick movement. He looked at her before finally replying “Do you know how long you have been out?” Ling Chang just shake her heard slowly to prevent too much pain. “You have been sleeping for about 8 hours meaning we have to rush to the emperor to have a change of preparing them of what comes. By the way sorry, my name is Hui Wen, a former assassin to the emperor and grandmaster of Xiao Chang your father” He started walking over Ito his horse and slowly took it over to Ling Chang who still laid down on the ground.
