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.
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.
As the sun started to raise over the town, it had already become clear for Ling Chang and the others that something was very wrong in the town. Screams was heard everywhere while fire and smoke made it almost impossible to see anything. Ling Chang walked between the two men who had formed like a shield around her as they had no idea of when they would run into some enemy soldiers as it was no longer a chance of if they were found. Every time a scream or a dead body appeared it gave a set in Ling Chang who really had to focus herself not to scream back and blow their cover. “Are we soon at the palace?” Ling Chang whispered to Hui Wen who was in front but even after a while no answer had returned, making Ling Chang pull his cloches which made him turn around and the mix of smoke and seriousness made him look very angry. “What?” he yelled whispering and Ling Chang wished she had not disrupted him but replied “When are we there?” calmly. Hui Wen looked at her before a sudden scream not farm from them, made him push himself against the wall of the burning house, making Ling Chang and Jun Chen followed his movements just in time. In the next three soldier walked past with a death woman hanging in between their arms and only a quick arm from Jun Chen prevented Ling Chang from screaming, letting the men pass in peace at first but Ling Chang felt the rage inside her and before Jun Chen had a chance to hold her back, she had already stepped out in the middle of the road away form the safety of the smoke. “Stop” she yelled while pointed her sword against the soldiers who stopped as told before turning around laughing. “Look a woman, playing with a sword” one of the soldier said while laughing and another replied “Maybe it is her sister” and threw the remains of the death woman against Ling Chang who landed with the face looking directly at her with her bare eye socket. Ling Chang could feel her rage grow inside and the three men walked closer while one of the tried to get a hold on her but in a second Ling Chang moved and the man were now screaming of pain, making the two remaining pulling their swords and attack but Ling Chang was not done. In the next she killed the screaming man, blocked the attacks from the others and killing them too. Jun Chen and Hui Wen stood speechless as Ling Chang cleaned her sword of the blood before Jun Chen walked slow over to her. “Are you alright?” He whispered gentle and Ling Chang looked him and smiled while the rage inside her disappeared quickly before replying “Yes”. Hui Wen also came out form the smoke but he was far from calm and yelled “You have maybe ruined our one chance of saving Jiang Chen and make it out of this town alive” He wanted to yell more but he could see that Ling Chang was close to burst into tears. He took a deep breath and returned to his normal calm self and continued “Sorry, I did not mean that, I just got worried for you… That is all” Ling Chang looked at him with shiny eyes and did not reply but returned her sword to its place by her side.
Ling Chang opens her eyes and screams of pain “Arhhhh” when she suddenly remember where she is and stops instantly. She looks down and except for some big holes in her clothes, there are luckily no blood and she are not covered in snow. She looks around on the white snow while her teeth starts chattered wildly.”What happened, first I am walking alone before suddenly hearing Jun Chen’s voice and in the next I am here at the foot of a mountain with snow everywhere… If I don’t find a place to get warm soon, I will die” she thinks to herself but still her voice sings in her ears.Continue reading
Ling Chang opened her eyes with a set and before she had been awake long enough to think a single thought, she were already at her door with the sword pulled and ready to strike because of the yelling and noise coming outside. She slowly opened the door and as she finally managed to peak out, she noticed that it was just Jun Chen and Hui Wen who was yelling at each other near their rooms and the yelling was so high it was just noise in Ling Chang’s ears so she went back to her bed and place the sword before getting dressed while watching the sun raising. “I wonder what they are yelling about this early in the morning” She asked her parents when it were time to pray before it hit her, she had been naked in plain sight of Jun Chen so whatever they were yelling about at this hour it sure was important. She returning to her own silence which made the world feel like two and it scared her a bit that they were able to be so angry. As she decide to walk outside her room to get some breakfast the yelling had moved to her door and she had suddenly arrived in the middle of the fight between Jun Chen and Hui Wen who is already very angry at each other. “WHY DID YOU HIDE IT FROM ME” Jun Chen yells loudly, not noticing that Ling Chang has awaken and is right in the middle of it. “I HAVE MY REASONS” Hui Wen yells back leaving Ling Chang almost deaf for a moment
