Shadow Hack Chapter 613
In Lucky Wind City, Lin Yuerou rubbed her aching temples and slowly sat up on the bed. She looked around with her beautiful eyes. The more she looked, the stronger her doubt became.
She remembered the last thing that had happened before she had lost consciousness. Three supreme transcending experts seemed to have fallen out and then fought in the Heavenly Cloud City. As for what happened afterwards, she didn't remember anything.
Lin Yuerou was certain of one thing though—she wasn't in Heavenly Cloud City anymore. Everything around her was unfamiliar to her.
"You awake?" a crisp and melodious voice asked. Li Yuerou quickly turned in its direction.
A slender figure reclined against the door. The woman had plain, ash-colored cotton clothes and a simple long sword at her waist. If not for the beautiful face which wasn't inferior to hers, Lin Yuerou would have thought that she was looking at Sword Sage!
When she was about to say those two words, 'Sword Sage', she felt a dull ache in her heart. If not for that supreme existence choosing to stake his life to break her out of the confinement, she probably would have been annihilated together with Heavenly Cloud City!
"My master gave his life to rescue you," Ling Shuang said while expressionlessly looking at Lin Yuerou.
She nodded slightly and softly said, "I owe Sword Sage a favor. Since you're his disciple, I am willing to unconditionally do one thing for you."
"Hah." Ling Shuang sneered, then said in a low voice, "My master saved you so that you can assist Li Yunmu and not to put you in his favor, understand?"
With her five white as jade fingers gripping the hilt of her sword, Ling Shuang indifferently said, "In the short time you were unconscious, two out of three supreme transcending experts were killed by Li Yuunmu. He has already returned to the Origin World while I chose to wait here for you."
"How can I assist him?"
Li Yunmu slowly lifted up her head with a hint of determination in her eyes.
The first time she had seen Li Yunmu, he had been a country bumpkin, an ant. But as time passed, she discovered that even though she had been the proud daughter of Heavenly Cloud City, she was still greatly inferior to him.
The speed of Li Yunmu's rise was fully deserving the title of legendary!
Whether it was Lin Yuerou or Ling Shuang, both of them could see him getting farther and farther away. With the enormous disparity between them, Lin Yuerou couldn't even imagine herself assisting him!
"He left behind Lucky Wind City. I will deliver it to you," Ling Shuang said expressionlessly. Soon after, a white halo appeared in her hand and she added, "This was left behind by Li Yunmu and can allow us to cultivate to deity realm. This one's for you."
Ling Shuang then threw the cultivation relaying globe at Lin Yuerou and calmly said, "I hope that the next time we meet, Lucky Wind City will be far more formidable than right now. At least make it so that he can feel that what he left behind is safe and does not require him to worry about it."
Lin Yuerou slowly closed her eyes and began to rummage through the contents of the cultivation relaying globe. Her complexion changed erratically as she did so.
After she looked through the contents of cultivation relaying globe, Lin Yuerou understood the reason why so many of Earth's outstanding talents weren't able to discover the method to break through the battle sage realm and reach the deity realm.
From the very start, all of them lacked the foundation compared to the cultivators of the Origin World. Since even it wasn't completely established, there could be no speaking of breaking through the bottleneck and stepping into the genuine deity realm!
Yet Li Yunmu had returned with the method to cultivate to deity realm, which was enough to turn Lucky Wind City into a transcending power which could be reckoned as the best or second best!
It has to be known that even some of the weaker third tier powers of the Origin World might not possess such an intact method of reaching deity realm.
"Then what about you?" Lin Yuerou suddenly opened her eyes wide. "Since you are handing Lucky Wind City over to me, what do you plan to do next?"
"Seek battle." Ling Shuang's grip on the sword's hilt tightened, and she said in a profound tone with a neutral expression, "I want to chase after him, but it's very difficult. Perhaps only by pursuing comprehension in life and death battles can I overtake him!"
Is it worth it?
This question was on Lin Yuerou's lips, but in the end, she didn't open her mouth.
Actually, she could see that the difference between Ling Shuang and Li Yunmu would \eternally remain like two parallel lines. They might advance in the same direction, but they would never intersect, even if Ling Shuang staked her life on it.
"I will try all I can. I don't dare to say that I will take Lucky Wind City to any heights, but I can ensure that as long as I, Ling Shuang, have a single breath remaining in my body, Li Yunmu's city will continue existing in this world!"
Lin Yuerou placed her right hand on the left side of her chest and solemnly made a promise to Ling Shuang. She knew the city's significance to Li Yunmu and clearly understood what he wanted to do. He couldn't protect the entire world by himself, but he could protect one city. It would be a seed for the future.
Ling Shuang softly shook her head and said with a smile, "Alright, I will hand Lucky Wind City to you and hope that the next time I return, it will be advancing in the direction I anticipate."
Once she said that, one person and one sword quickly left Lucky Wind City.
Earth had lost a Battle God, but from that day onwards, it had gained an unrivalled female sword devil.
Each and every expert who was somewhat famous received that female sword devil's challenge. All of them were battles with life and death on the line, and those who could leave alive were few and far between.
Lin Yuerou glanced at the data placed near window and a faint smile appeared on her face. "This young girl, seems like she isn't as cold as her face," she mumbled.
Ling Yuerou slowly focused her attention on the materials left behind by Ling Shuang and began to flip through them.
It was data on the entire Lucky Wind City collected by Ling Shuang after investigating during the time Lin Yuerou was unconscious. Population, resources, subordinates, average strength, and everything else of importance was written down in extreme detail.
Even the changes in the surrounding topography of Lucky Wind City, newly appeared powers, and their attitude toward Lucky Wind City were all covered!
Even Lin Yuerou who had previously administered Heavenly Cloud City couldn't claim that she could have done a better job than Ling Shuang.
It has to be said that Ling Shuang would make a good wife. If any man could get such a wife, it could be considered as their good fortune. But unfortunately, she had taken a fancy to Li Yunmu, an existence she was bound to remain unable to overtake.
"I wonder when will be the next time we see each other."
Lin Yuerou helplessly heaved a sigh.
