Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
The autumn rain stopped overnight.
In the morning, Gian was awakened by a low knock on the door. He struggled to open his eyes but still felt very tired and didn’t want to leave the bed at all. He sat up with his arms on his back, thinking about what he had seen in his dream just now. He vaguely remembered that it had something to do with Shane.
The knocking outside became more and more urgent, and then came the shrill voice of the dormitory keeper, Grany Ye, “Gian, get up!”
What happened? These strange things frequently happened, which made Gian nervous all the time. Hearing that Grany Ye was urging him outside, he quickly stood up and opened the door. The light in the corridor was bright. Grany Ye was wrapped in a big cotton coat and carrying a furnace. She looked serious and gasped for white mist.
“Change your clothes quickly and gather downstairs.”Grany Ye waved at him and walked quickly to other rooms to send messages.
So what? Gian closed the door and glanced at the clock with a frown. It was just past 7 o’clock. The clouds outside the window seemed to have not dissipated, and there was only a little light. After he quickly washed his face and rinsed his mouth, he put on his uniform and ran downstairs.
There were not many students in the dormitory building. They were woken up early in the morning, yawning and rubbing their sleepy eyes downstairs. Gian greeted the acquaintances and followed them downstairs.
Reluctantly, these young men stood in the open space in front of the dormitory building one by one. The cold wind was roaring outside, and there were still water stains in the cracks of bricks and stones. Two middle-aged men in black gowns of the secret sect stood still outside the door. One had a gentle smile on his face, and the other had closed eyes with no expression.
The amiable Sorcerer saw them standing in a few rows in front of the door. After everyone stood up, he waved his hand, and a white light flashed, illuminating the large area in front of the door. He patted his partner on the shoulder, and the Sorcerer emitted an invisible wave that swept through the entire building. After a moment of silence, he slowly shook his head.
Seeing this, the students were a little nervous. The people standing in the outer ring all leaned towards the crowd and squeezed into a ball. Sorcerer of light still had a smile on his face. He glanced at every student to see if there was anything wrong. After a while, he coughed and said, “Don’t be nervous. Is it just a routine examination? Does anyone feel sick? Besides … “He paused, stared at the expressions of the young men carefully, and asked, “Last night…Anything unusual happened? “
Unusual? Gian was slightly stunned. He had a deep sleep last night and didn’t notice anything unusual around him. The students looked at each other. An elder boy couldn’t help but ask, “Sir, what happened? I stayed up all night last night and didn’t see anything unusual… “
“That’s good…”The monk nodded with a smile. He wanted to ask more, but suddenly a thin middle-aged lady in flannel rushed over from a distance.
The lady bent down and ran out of breath. She stopped beside the Sorcerer of light, took out a cotton handkerchief, and wiped her sweat. Then she said in a flattering and soft voice, “Two masters, the headmaster had arranged everything. He was waiting for you two to go there.”
“Thank you…” Sorcerer of light smiled and thanked her. Then he patted his companion on the shoulder. The two of them left the dormitory area together, leaving the confused students behind.
“All right, all right. Go back to your rooms. I’m telling you, don’t make any trouble today.” The lady waved at the young men and was about to leave.
“Director……What happened? “A fat boy yawned and asked.
“Don’t ask. The school is closed today. The elders of the holy tower will come later. Don’t run around if you have nothing to do. Do you hear me? “The female director turned around, straightened her face, and warned the young men in a dignified tone. Then she bent down and ran away as she did when she came.
Class break? The students downstairs cheered up as soon as they heard the news, leaving the unhappiness of being woken up early in the morning behind. The crowd burst into laughter and went back to their dormitory together.
Gian also went back to his room and threw herself on the bed. He closed his eyes and let out a sigh of relief. He even stopped school. It was so serious. He hoped it was not a big deal again. It was still so early. What should she do? When he was thinking about it, he turned his head by chance and saw a large amount of gold on the old book beside the pillow. His heart skipped a beat, and he quickly reached out to take it.
Why did the book change so much? Gian looked the book up and down in surprise. Had filled the originally empty sandglass on the book cover with more than half of the sand, and the surrounding lines were shining as if had changed a new book cover overnight. He opened the book again, but the yellowing page was still blank, just as before.
What happened? He stared at the golden sand clock in a daze. Was it an unusual thing? Thinking of the words of the Sorcerer in the black robe just now, his heartbeat fast.” What should I do? Should I tell Sorcerer?”However, this was not his book, after all. He had asked the shop manager first. If there were a problem, he would tell the monk.
He sighed and put the book into his backpack. He planned to go to the study to try his luck. He ate some snacks in the canteen downstairs and ran out of the campus in the cold wind. When he met the old guard who had helped him at the gate, he hurried forward and thanked him again.
The old guard waved his hand and reminded him in a low voice, “something serious happened today. Don’t come back too late tonight. I’m afraid that the school will be closed…” He seemed to be a little anxious. He took a few deep breaths and blew out a long white line.
“Seal the school?” Gian was taken aback? After a short pause, he asked the old man, “Grandpa Lin, what happened?”
The old guard sighed and pointed to the north with his pipe. “I heard that there is something wrong with the Psychedelic flower garden. The nearby area has been blocked, and I’m afraid the school will have to stop for a few days… Alas, this is not peaceful. “
Psychedelic flower… Gian certainly knew about the heavily guarded greenhouse group in the north of the school. Since the matter involved the Psychedelic flower, he was afraid that it was not something he could guess. He walked to the door and looked to both sides. The corner of the west road was already full of people who wanted to see the fun. The Sorcerer of write guarded the intersection and summoned the light wall to block the crowd, but there was still a tendency to gather more around.
“Don’t get involved.” The old man’s hoarse warning came from behind.
“Okay!” Gian answered, and he was not interested in seeing the excitement. He just waved goodbye to the older man. Suddenly, there is a green light belt in the distance. Gian looks at it and sees that it is a thick, fluorescent winding vine, which is rapidly extending to the college’s rear. Then, a figure like a meteor glided down the long vine and disappeared in his field of vision in the blink of an eye.
How wonderful! He didn’t know whose means it was. Gian looked at the fantastic vines in the air and exclaimed to himself. He no longer looked much, turned to run up the iron frame bridge, and rode the rail car straight to the city’s east.
The study room was still very quiet, with the constant year-round sunshine, the same warm temperature, it seemed that it would never be affected by the outside world. Gian changed his clothes and did a good job in the daily arrangement. After seeing off several guests, he finally leaned on the bar to be lazy.
So many things had happened recently. His mind was in a mess. The window was shining with golden sunshine. He looked at his eyelids, getting heavier and heavier. He lay on the table on his arms and began to think wildly when drowsy. He thought about the unforgettable concert, the subsequent assassination, his friends who suddenly disappeared, the strange book, and the unknown emergency in the morning. Countless thoughts entangled and mixed, let him subconsciously frown in the misty, difficult to release.
Half a dream and half awake, came a pleasant wind ring. Gian forced his sleepy eyes and turned to look forward. In the sun, the handsome young man wore a classic shirt and trousers embroidered with silver stripes and a gray-blue coat. His mouth was full of a smile, and his short golden hair was shining brightly.
Shopowner? Gian rubbed his eyes. He seemed to be a little incredulous. He was thinking about when he would see him.
“What’s the matter, money fan, you don’t know me after a few weeks?” The manager joked and went to the bar to hang his coat in the closet.
“It’s you, store manager!” Gian quickly got up, scratched his head, and giggled, “I thought I was dreaming.”
“So think of me? Can you dream? “Yuno grinned more merrily, turning around to notice Gian’s hard-worn face, staring into his red eyes and wondering, “What’s the matter, that’s so bad?”
“Oh, I always dream at night, and I don’t sleep well…” Gian yawned involuntarily.
“Come here, I’ll take a look at it for you…” The store manager took his arm, held his face, examined it carefully, and put his hand around his eyes. A warm white light flashed from his hands like flowing water. Gian felt that his eyes were hot, and his tiredness disappeared in an instant. The whole person was excited.
After the treatment, Yuno quickly withdrew his hand. Gian was embarrassed to thank him, but he thought of why he came here early in the morning. He quickly turned out the strange book and handed it to him: “store manager, look at this book…”
Yuno took the book before and after a look, though: it’s perfect, this money fan’s eye is also good. He secretly praised a, holding the book with a bit of joy, asked: “for me?” The appearance of this strange book has changed greatly. The glittering gold lines on the book cover look rather luxurious.
“Uh…”Gian was temporarily at a loss. He replied awkwardly, “I found this book on the second floor… That one suddenly popped out from the crystal wall. Manager, I didn’t mean to go in. I don’t know why… “He explained patiently for a long time, afraid of making the manager angry and blaming him for breaking in without listening to the warning.
From the crystal wall? With his mouth slightly open in surprise, he wondered if it had anything to do with his? He thought for a while in silence, feeling that he couldn’t tell him the secret inside, so he waved his hand casually and said, “Well… Okay, I know. It’s not your fault. I’ll put the book back. “
“Alas!” Gian felt relieved. Thinking of the strangeness of the book, he reminded, “Manager, this book…”
“I know. Don’t worry.”With a smile, he waved his hand and interrupted him. It was not the right time to point out that place. He had to ask that person first.
Gian had to shut up. Watching the manager humming a soft tune and walking towards the two-floor with a book in his hand, he heaved a sigh of relief. He had finally given back this strange ancient thing. He returned to the shop manager made him feel like he had been relieved, and there was a sudden element in his body. The doorbell rang again. Gian walked up to it with a smile and continued to receive his.
The situation was divided into two types. The friends in the study were having a good time. In the farmhouse in the northwest corner of Jing City, a disaster that would shock the whole Wong country was happening.
At noon, a dark blue flame suddenly appeared in the rice field soaked in the rain. The fire grew bigger in the wind and more intense in the water. In the blink of an eye, it covered the mountains and fields, devouring everything that could be seen.
The earth shook and cracked slowly. Black mud like swamp gushed out from the cracks. It instantly burned and exploded when it met the flames, and blazing blue flames rose, like a peculiar hell.
“It’s on fire! Blue fire! “The villagers on the farm were frightened by this strange and terrible disaster. They shouted and ran to the courtyard of Lu Ang, the owner of the innermost farm.
“Don’t panic! Hide in the cellar first! “Lu Ang stood in front of the gate and ordered the villagers to go to the deep underground storage cellar of his house. Looking at the fast-flowing blue fire around, he felt that his hands and feet were cold and numb. He had only heard of this terrible devil flame and had never seen it with his own eyes. Now he was completely at a loss when he saw the flame that seemed to devour everything, even stones.
What should I do? His father and mother had gone to the city for business. He stayed at home because his school was suspended. Who knew that he would encounter such a situation? Sweat dripped from his face. He wasn’t sure if the cellar could block the flames, but the village’s surrounding area was already submerged in endless flames, and there was no way back!
The blue fire sea rushed along with the wind, and the wooden wall was swallowed up by the fire without even a second. Lu Ang had walked to the entrance of the cellar, and his hands were trembling, ready to hide in the safe place at any time. Blazing temperature rolled over, and only the dark blue color on the scorched earth remained in his eyes, like a silent God of death, approaching him step by step.
At this critical moment of life and death, an incomparably bright white halo suddenly appeared above his head. The halo trembled, and in the blink of an eye, it turned into a light shield that enveloped the entire building. Lu Ang opened his mouth wide in astonishment and looked up. A purple figure appeared on the top of the shield. He floated in the air like a phantom, and countless dazzling white lights constantly emitted from his body, quickly condensing into a huge ball of light.
The man in a purple robe opened his hands and gently pressed them. The light ball instantly expanded and spread, and a majestic column of light appeared on the ground. The boundless demonic power poured down, smashing all the wildly burning demonic flames into tiny invisible fragments. The white light column disappeared in an instant. The land after the disaster was full of charred marks, and light smoke pervaded. Gullies were everywhere in the rice field, deep and bottomless.
The man in purple robe remained motionless in the air, and the strong wind swept his long purple hair across his face. He stood still expressionlessly, and his eyes were full of pure white divine light.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
