Yi Zheng immediately went over to Yi Yeyu when he saw her awake, sitting up in her bed.
"Are you okay?" he asked.
"I dreamt of a giant python that stabbed through my stomach, and I died" She said with a look of bewilderment and fear on her face.
As she said the words, she looked down at her abdomen which had been wounded before. However, the injury had healed. There was nothing unusual as she touched it gently and there was no scar on the wound to show it anymore.
However, the attack had clearly happened as there was a large tear on her shirt and blood stains around it, the indication that it was not just an illusion, and that she was attacked by the black python not long ago.
"You have her to thank. Miss Xue Luo saved your life!" As soon as Yi Zheng finished his sentence, he turned to Xue Luo and immediately expressed his gratitude.
"Miss Xue Luo?" Yi Yeyu was stunned. She could not recall her name as a member of the hunting party. Gazing at Xue Luo, she immediately noticed her right hand.
That moment, she remembered the incident as she stared at Xue Luos right hand. She then said, "I remember your hand. Youre the one who pulled me out of the dark. Thank you!"
"Youre welcome. Mister Lin Huang saved my life, and he asked for my help to save you, so I did him a favor," Xue Luo smiled as she said. Xue Luo treated her in a much friendlier manner than others.
"Thank you, Lin Huang!" Yi Yeyu looked at Lin Huang and said.
"Im glad that youre fine," Lin Huang nodded his head as he said.
"Mister, may I speak with you privately?" Xue Luo turned towards Lin Huang and said in a low voice.
"Excuse me for a moment," Lin Huang said Yi Yeyu and Yi Zheng. He then left together with Xue Luo.
Xue Luo waved her hand. She brought Lin Huang and Bing Wang along and they stepped up on a giant rock.
She walked straight to the side of the rock, sat down and patted the rock surface and said, "Mister, please have a seat."
He did not seem to hesitate and sat beside her.
Bing Wang then stood behind the both of them.
There were two moons, a red and a purple moon, lighting up the night sky. The ground looked like it was covered by spun yarns of different colors, creating a mysterious shade of light.
"Miss Xue Luo, are you leaving?" Lin Huang asked as he saw Xue Luo was silently looking at the moonlight.
"Yes, its time for me to leave," Xue Luo said and nodded her head. "I have seen the moons of this world for too long," she continued.
Lin Huang paused for a moment in thought and asked, "When do you plan to depart? Well see you off then."
"Were leaving shortly," Xue Luos answered. Her response took Lin Huang by surprise.
Lin Huang then composed himself and nodded his head. He had no idea how to keep the conversation going.
After a moment of silence, Xue Luo suddenly raised her head and looked at Lin Huang, looking serious, "Mister, I dont know if I should ask you about this, but..." She trailed off.
"Just ask me whatever you would like to know. Ill try my best to answer," he said, trying to calm her nervousness. Lin Huang turned to face her and their eyes met. He then quickly shifted his gaze away from her after a brief awkward moment.
"Mister, do you think its right or wrong for a protoss and a human to fall in love with each other?" She asked softly. Xue Luo was being very honest as this question had been a problem troubling her for more than 700 years.
"Theres no right or wrong when it comes to love. When you fall for someone and it ends up being a bad relationship, that does not mean all relationships are bad. It only indicates that you met the wrong person. If a protoss and a human truly loved each other, I dont think its wrong," he replied. He was actually taken aback by her forwardness but spoke his mind regardless.
Lin Huang felt that this was a serious topic. To ease the tenseness, he then switched the topic and told her a story.
"Ive read a story quite like that before. There was a man named Bei Feng. He fell in love with many women of different races who gave birth to many children of different races"
Xue Luo was stunned as she heard this. "Did nobody stand against his polygamous ways?"
"Well, if you think that its right and youre determined to do it, why do you care about what other people think?" Lin Huang said and laughed at her response. "Of course, Bei Feng was just a character in the story. No person like that exist in reality," he continued to reassure her.
"Ive thought it through..." Xue Luo said after falling into deep thought. Her eyes brightened.
"Mister, whats your plan, after this?" Xue Luo suddenly asked.
"Ill register as a hunter and will try my best to achieve iron-level. Ill be very busy with these tasks when I return. Plans for the future would be first and foremost, working towards the goal of being a transcendent," he said proudly. Lin Huang had no idea how long it would take for him to be a transcendent. However, it would be meaningless to talk about the future since he did not have a complete understanding of this world. He could only act when the time came. One could only go further if they progressed with certainty in mind.
Both of them chatted for quite some time, sitting on the giant rock. However, Yi Zheng who was watching from below looked upset.
"I thought Lin Huang was an honest man but now, I dont think so. I feel worried, asking him to take care of my sister," he confessed to Yi Yeyu.
"What are you talking about?!" she shouted and pinched his arm hard.
"Im just telling the truth. Why did you pinch me? Miss Xue Luo is so beautiful and she's younger than you. She is so powerful, probably a transcendent human too. If you don't make some moves and work for him, perhaps Lin Huang will be snatched away from you," he said with a chuckle. Obviously, they did not realize Xue Luo and Bing Wang were not human. They thought they were transcendent beings.
"Damn!" Yi Yeyu squealed. She freaked out at the thought of losing Lin Huang.
On the giant rock, Lin Huang and Xue Luo were about to end their conversation.
"Well leave after getting our things done," Xue Luo said and stood up.
"Is there anything that you still have to do?" Lin Huang stood up and asked out of curiosity.
"I have to erase the memory of me and Xiao Bing from the human brains we've come in contact with. Also, I'll have to patch up the battleground," Xue Luo said, looking at Lin Huang. "In addition to that, the people witnessed the scenes of you killing hundreds of monsters. That has to be erased from their memory as well, for your safety. Others must not know about this," she warned him.
"Although I dont know what you did to master the power of such curses. with this kind of strength, even a God of the human race would be keen on having such a gift," she said. At first, Lin Huang thought she was joking, but as Xue Luo said those words, she had a deadly serious look in her eyes.
"Yes, I know," he replied.
Lin Huang never expected a hidden power to exist in the Small Destruction Card that even a God was seeking for it.
"Ill begin to erase their memory and replace them up with new memories," she said. As soon as Xue Luo finished her sentence, it began to snow.
At that moment, everyone in the foothold felt odd about the occurrence. Suddenly, the hunters and the residents started to faint one by one.
Bing Wang left as well. After a short while, he came back, carrying a young man.
"I've created a new memory for them. A transcendent human arrived at the battleground and had an intense battle with the black python. He saved everyone and the crowd of monsters retreated after the snake was killed," Xue Luo said to Bing Wang. She then continued with instructions him, saying, "Xiao Bing, you've fought with this man before. You may fake evidence of a fight at this place based on his combat style. Regarding the traces of monsters, I will erase it with the snow," she said.
It was now midsummer, but there was heavy snowfall. In the entire ravine, only Lin Huang, Xue Luo, and Bing Wang stood in silence.
Very quickly, Bing Wang had finished fixing up the battleground. However, the snow did not stop and the whole world turned white. Under two full moons, the night sky was exceptionally beautiful.
"Mister, we will be leaving now," Xue Luo said. She was less than two meters away from Lin Huang, standing on the giant rock. She tilted her head slightly and smiled at him.
On such a snowy night, she stood barefoot on the giant rock like a snow fairy. She was very pretty.
Lin Huang nodded. He waved his hand and said, "Bye, Xue Luo."
"Bye, Mister," she replied.
Xue Luo waved at Lin Huang. Then, Bing Wang and Xue Luo both rose up into the air.
As both of them were hundreds of meters above the ground, Xue Luo waved her hands in the air and a Virtual Eye gradually formed in front of them.
After a short while, the Virtual Eye was opened. There were icy white eyes inside the Virtual Eye, resembling a giant spiritual eye looking down from the sky.
Xue Luo and Bing Wang stepped into the Virtual Eye and it closed gradually around them. Both of them completely disappeared.
Until the moment when the Virtual Eye had also disappeared, Lin Huang slowly shifted his gaze away from the sight. He sighed and thought in his heart, "Bye, Xue Luo"
