Chapter 144 – Leaving Quietly
Lei Yu walked forward a few steps towards William. The latter carefully raised his large sword until its tip was pointing directly at Lei Yu.
One could see Lei Yu grasp the sword blade gently with his thumb and index fingers while displaying his signature smile. Right after that, an irrepressible power burst forth through the blade and into William’s hand. William’s body suddenly started to shake; the hair all over his body was standing on its end; the veins on his neck started to bulge out; and his eyes looked like they wanted to pop out and land on Minotaur Linos.
The warriors behind William had no idea what was happening so they had no clue why their General was acting this way. But Minotaur Linos was very clear on what was happening, this was Lei Yu’s special ability – the power of lightning.
About half a minute passed by before Lei Yu withdrew his fingers and rested his arms by his side. He lightly smiled while looking at William, while the latter’s hair looked like he was struck by lightning. With an extremely embarrassed look, William did not look like a general who was commanding a hundred thousand troops; his mouth was wide open with white smoke coming out of it. When he glanced at Lei Yu again, the word “fear” wasn’t enough to describe the look in his eyes.
“Let me say it again, you have to stay while the others can leave. Perhaps you didn’t hear me clearly when I spoke for the first time?” Lei Yu once again repeated his previous words.
Although he feared that he would meet with a tragedy if he stayed however if he didn’t do what this youngster demanded, it’s most likely that he would lose his life at this spot. Not to mention that he didn’t want to experience the living hell which he had just encountered.
“Withdraw the troops!”
“Acknowledged!” The Vice General behind nodded. Two soldiers lifted up their two-colored flags and started waving it in a certain pattern. All the soldiers then started moving away in an orderly manner. Thus, a hundred thousand troops all withdrew cleanly leaving behind a cloud of dust in the air.
“Benefactor, why are you making him stay?” Minotaur Linos moved his huge head towards Lei Yu’s face before asking in a whisper.
“What the hell?!” Lei Yu suddenly jumped to the side. “You freakin bull-head, you scared the crap out of me!”
William blinked a few times. Who would dare to speak with a fiendgod in such a rude manner? When he thought about it some more, could this person in front of him be… William then finally realized what Minotaur Linos called this youngster and suddenly became pale in fright. Could it be that the fiendgod Minotaur Linos was able to leave the labyrinth because he was rescued by this person? Then how powerful was this person?
“Do you know the reason why I wanted you to stay?” Lei Yu looked at William and asked.
“No… no idea!”
“You should know who Pelagon is right?” Lei Yu asked again.
William sucked in a breath of cold air, everything was very clear now. It looks like this person in front of him really rescued Minotaur Linos from the labyrinth. Now that he mentioned Pelagon, that means he must have met the Emperor from long ago right? If all of his guesses were accurate, that meant Pelagon was still alive all these years. An army general like him dared to seize the command of the entire kingdom… If Pelagon was still alive, then even if he died ten thousand times, it still wouldn’t be enough.
With a “plop” sound, William’s butt fell on the ground in a daze as he stared at nothing in particular. He understood that his days were numbered.
“Pelagon has already died after his fight with me.” Lei Yu continued saying.
William suddenly looked up, a hint of joy instantly lit up in his eyes before it quickly disappeared without a trace. But he wasn’t sure what Lei Yu was planning or what he meant by those words.
“That’s great! You are really too powerful, you should know that Emperor Pelagon was once the strongest warrior in my country. I would have never thought that you sir, would be this powerful! You were able to kill him, I really admire you! I admire you from the bottom of my heart!” William started to flatter Lei Yu. With so many complex thoughts and calculations, William came to a conclusion: This youngster who could fight with Pelagon and kill him, that meant that those two shouldn’t be on the same side. But William would have never imagined that his conclusion was completely wrong.
“You are truly a real bastard. Pelagon and I are friends, and you actually dare to insult my friend?” Lei Yu coldly humphed as he glared at William.
Pelagon and Lei Yu merely encountered each other by fate, and the two formed a bond thanks to their fight. Because of Lei Yu’s statement,Pelagon was able to restore his sanity and get rid of the mind control. And if it wasn’t for Pelagon, Lei Yu’s death would be certain. Therefore Lei Yu had no hatred for Pelagon, only gratitude.
William’s brain short-circuited as his mind simply became paste. His face immediately became gloomy since he was unsure of what to do. His eyes instantly became red, the tears in his eyes were like a waterfall gushing out like it didn’t cost any money. “Emperor Pelagon! How could you leave this world just like that? Did you know? All your subjects have been waiting for your return! You can’t just die like that!”
Lei Yu couldn’t help but be filled with loathing as he looked at William’s face. If this guy worked in his company and starred in a movie, there probably wouldn’t be many actors who could be compared with him in terms of acting. He could cry or laugh on cue; he was even faster than the stock market rebounding on certain news.
“Shut up!” Lei Yu shouted. “Wipe your snot you loathsome thing!”
Lei Yu frowned, he was too lazy to use his own hands on this type of person. After waving his hand, two soldiers on top of the city walls could see that Lei Yu was calling for them. They rushed down and out of the city gates. Since the enemy army had already retreated, they could see they weren’t in danger anymore. Because the invasion and retreat happened too quickly, these soldiers and citizens weren’t sure if this was the time to cheer or not.
“Your lordship!” The two soldiers respectfully stood in front of Lei Yu and the bull head.
Lei Yu pointed to William who was still crouching on the ground blowing his nose. “Take him to the arena so we can see a good show!”
William had no clue what Lei Yu was referring to, and he definitely didn’t know that when Minotaur Linos’s returned, he had helped Silo recover a portion of his injuries. He was going to be food for Silo very soon.
“Understood!” Grabbing onto William, these two soldiers felt like they had so much face now. Being able to capture the enemy’s commander, this was the perfect time for them to show off… even though they didn’t personally subdue him. And knowing their country had two powerful figures, who would dare invade them now?
Telephassa smiled while looking at her beloved. Unfortunately, this man will be leaving soon and he could never come back. She seems to be the only one who didn’t know about this, thinking Lei Yu’s return meant that he will never leave here again.
On a high platform of the arena, Lei Yu, Minotaur Linos, and Telephassa all stood together as they watched a perplexed William on the field.
“Call me Telephassa.”
“Uh… Telephassa.” Lei Yu pointed at William who was in the field and said: “Please do me a favor. When I was in the labyrinth, I promised Pelagon that I would save his subjects. I hope that you will send them a Peace Treaty and form an alliance with them. That way, my friend will be able to rest in peace.”
After thinking for a while, Telephassa said: “But their country’s emperor is too weak and incompetent. Forming an alliance with them will not benefit us at all.”
Lei Yu lightly sighed. Folding his hands behind his back, “Are you not aware that having a weak ally is better than having a strong enemy? I will do what I’ve promised to Pelagon. As for whether his country will continue to exist in the future or not will all depend on the current Emperor, and it’s all up to him if he will strive to become a better person or not. At least I have kept my part of the promise.”
At this time, a metal gate on the side of the arena opened up slowly. The fearsome Silo came out one step at a time but did not forget to bow deeply to where Minotaur Linos was standing. Everyone could see how much he respected the fiendgod. Even Telephassa had never received such a treatment from Silo before. But when Silo looked at Lei Yu, his eyes were conflicted. Lei Yu had injured him yet rescued the fiendgod, which made him unsure how to treat such a person.
Meanwhile in the the arena, William had gone bat shit crazy. “Ahh! Silo! Silo! It’s actually Silo!” His heavy armor was no longer something that could protect his life, it was nothing but a burden that hindered him from running away.
Silo roared before rushing towards William. Although the arena looked like a duel between a person and a monster, but it was really a one-sided attack. The other was like a grasshopper trapped in a cage with a rooster chasing after it. No matter how hard he tried, he was unable to escape his fate.
No one looked at Silo as a form of entertainment. Even now they wouldn’t because of the merits he had achieved for the country were too much. He had saved this country more than once already. But because of his overly tyrannical nature, Telephassa could not help but to have him locked up.
But if we think about this for a while, could anyone truly lock up Silo? No, it was not possible. It’s only because of the order given by Minotaur Linos that he was this kingdom’s guardian and that’s why he acted accordingly.
A bloody scene appeared in the arena. All the citizens and soldiers spectating became excited to the extreme as they roared out and cheered.
Late in the night, Lei Yu quietly entered into Telephassa’s chambers. Standing beside her bed, he observed her coquettish looks and her hot near-naked body. Her smooth tempting skin that revealed a sexy look in the evening made it even more difficult for a person to resist. Lei Yu swallowed hard. Even though he was unwilling to part with her, he still had to leave. Cautiously moving closer, Lei Yu gently kissed her forehead and then kissed her lips. His hands were trembling as he gently wrapped his arms around her body and embraced her. The touch of her soft body caused an explosion of temptation in Lei Yu, making him unable to resist and a tent shape was popping out in his pants.
Shifting her back onto the bed, Lei Yu retreated out one step at a time. While leaving the room, Lei Yu was reluctant to look away from this unforgettable goddess of beauty, yet he still had to go.
Sighing heavily, Lei Yu turned to leave as he parted ways with the sexy sleeping goddess.
“Bull-head, everything will be your responsibility in the future. I have to leave now.” Lei Yu patted the shoulders of Minotaur Linos.
“Rest assured, this is my country. Since she has the crown of Ares, I will to protect her.” Minotaur Linos nodded.
“Prophet Kalchas, how long will the stuff you gave her last?” Lei Yu asked.
“It should last until sunrise at least.”
“That’s good.” Even though there was nothing to see, Lei Yu still looked at Telephassa’s direction in deep thought.
“Shall we leave now?” The bull head cried into the sky. His body underwent a dramatic change and once again became the golden bull god.
Lei Yu then jumped onto the saddle and just like a meteor shower at night, they disappeared into the endless horizon.
