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.
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 not help her eyes grow big as she entered the garden inside the palace walls as there was no fire or screaming but instead full of birds singing. The only thing that showed the war outside was the smoke raising above the wall. It was so beautiful that Ling Chang almost forgot her mission of finding Jiang Chen but only almost as a scream broke the silence. Ling Chang followed the noise and found a maid surrounded by 3 men, her cloches was broke and had blood on. “Leave me alone” The woman yelled but the men walked closer laughing, making Ling Chang pull a small knife from its hiding spot inside her hair, she prepared herself to attack one of the men but stopped just as she were about to strike as she knew it would ruin her cover. The woman screamed again some unintelligible words and one of the men turned around, just to notice Ling Chang with the small knife. “well, what to we have here… Another girl to play with and she brought her own tools” the man said and pulled his sword but before it was free of the sheath, Ling Chang had change her mind of her cover and attack the man, making the sword fall to the ground. The man turn red as the morning sun and launched a punch after Ling Chang who was far to fast for him so she just bowed down and pulled the sword from the ground and place her knife back into her hair in one movement. The two remaining men noticed what had happen and they pulled their swords quickly while stepping around Ling Chang so she now had an enemy on each side.
“Sorry… I thought you was those old people who had returned” Ling Chang managed to say before Jun Chen broke in. “We have to go there” He said with glazing eyes and Ling Chang turned around in silence and watched a red object in the horizon. “I agree” She managed to say after observing the place in silence before continuing “Lets go now before our energy runs out” and Jun Chen just nodded as they started swimming against it. The object was much closer than they expected once they had started swimming, and it was a flying sculpture of fire dragon. “What do you think we need to do?” Ling Chang asked as they came close to it and Jun Chen almost yelled in reply “I do not know but we better think quick as it is getting smaller” and to Ling Chang’s fear he was right but what was the plan with it. “Think, think, think” Jun Chen started which prompted made Ling Chang reply annoyed “That is not helping at all” and they thought on in silence while the sculpture got smaller and smaller until Ling Chang suddenly got an idea and asked straight. “Do you trust me?” Her voice was far from calm and the sculpture was almost gone now. Jun Chen looked at her like he was about to argue with her but instead his voice reveal only a single word. “Yes” and before any of them could say anything against the plan, was Ling Chang taking a grip in Jun Chen before placing her hand around the sculpture and before she felt any pain, they were suddenly in a world of fire. Ling Chang did not need many seconds to see that they were safe for now and to think before she yelled “Look for a sculpture of something like the fire, it is our only way out” and they looked around while the sweat started to run down their faces like tears. Ling Chang was the first to notice the ball of metal flying above their heads and she knew they had no chance of touching it together like last time. “There it is” she said and pointed in the air but before she could argue about the placement was Jun Chen already lifting her. “I do not know the way out, but I know I love you so save yourself” Jun Chen said and then he threw Ling Chang against the ball of metal who with tears in her eyes had no time to reply.
He started to walk against the market and before he knew it, he was there even he had searched most of the roads for Ling Chang. His belly started to rumble loud as he smelled the meals being sold at the stands. He had forgotten to eat breakfast because of the argument about the letters with Hui Wen and now they was out to search for Ling Chang. “I hope I find her soon enough without any harm” He thought to himself but it still left his mouth as words.Continue reading
