The City’s Invincible Soldier King

Chapter 3 - A Man Like A Mystery

Translated by Lesyt Team: Magpie

Full of suffering and grievances, Xi Wanting silently sighed.

After composing herself, she strode to catch up with him.

This accident made her lose everything, including her mobile phone, so she had no way to ask for help.

Did she have to walk out of this vast desert step by step?

Looking at Long Lin who didn’t plan to contact the outside world, her beautiful face quietly puzzled.

But now, Long Lin was her only hope.

Thinking of the indifference of the Xi family, and that of Xi Wanting, Long Lin really intended to turn his back on her. But as long as he saw her countenance that was similar to Wanrou, he failed to steel his mind to do so.

Although Long Lin slowed down, she was soon left behind for she had never trekked in the desert.

With hatred in his heart, he found it difficult to show tenderness again.

Although Long Lin could not give up helping her, he no longer cared about this woman.

In the weak sunlight, Xi Wanting began to stumble, but Long Lin still did not stop.

She really wanted to stop him to rest for a while, but looking at his straight and strong back, she strove to keep walking.

Silently, the two had walked for nearly an hour.

The desert was ruthless.

Tired and thirsty due to the scorching weather, Xi Wanting completely failed to hold on, staggered, and then fell on the hot sand.

Long Lin finally turned around, but his eyes filled with coldness were frightening.

Xi Wanting was looking at Long Lin stubbornly.

She gave no explanation and did not beg.

While looking at her eyes, Long Lin’s heart uncontrollably became soft, because her stubborn eyes resembled those of Wanrou.

Suddenly, Long Lin had an illusion.

Long Lin took a big step to go over to her, and gently held her beautiful face, with his eyes full of tenderness and his voice full of love.

“Wanrou…”

While calling in a soft voice, Long Lin slowly moved close to her and then kissed her fleshy lips.

His affectionate eyes and tender call made her feel heartbroken, and also made her forget to stop him.

Their lips touched but she suddenly turned around and pushed him away.

Long Lin suddenly became sober.

“I am sorry.”

He said with apology, but in his eyes coldness instantly appeared. Therefore, Xi Wanting wanted to explain in detail what had happened two years ago.

However, the sight of his eyes filled with coldness and hatred made her just stubbornly look at him.

After a moment, Long Lin looked away and took out the canteen and the ship biscuits from his backpack to her.

“Thank you.” Xi Wanting said sincerely.

But Long Lin just looked at her with coldness and moved twenty meters away from her, standing as straight as a knife.

His back was so bleak that it inevitably made her feel sympathy for him.

Xi Wanting took the initiative to put away her stubbornness and pride, fighting back the pain of her feet to stride to him, stood opposite Long Lin, and seriously said, “I’m sorry.”

“Could your apology compensate for anything?” He said indifferently, looking at her. “If you could make Wanrou come alive again, I would give you countless apologies. If not enough, I can spend my lifetime in saying sorry to you again and again.”

“If possible, I can devote my life in exchange for hers.” Long Lin painfully said, “But it is impossible, and my beloved Wanrou will no longer come back.”

“I …” Xi Wanting finally could not help it but try to explain.”

“You do not have to comfort me, nor do you have to make up a story for me.” Said Long Lin, “I will not believe it.”

Long Lin’s words made her deny the impulse to give him an explanation.

With complex feelings, she looked at him and then turned around. She squatted on the ground in the shade provided by him and ate the ship biscuits in an elegant and calm manner.

“Aren’t you thirsty?” She asked him.

“The water I brought here is enough for one to go to the next source of water, and the food is enough for me alone to get out of the desert.” Long Lin said coldly.

Xi Wanting asked with some worries, “What should we do?”

“Don’t worry. Since I decided to bring you out, I will not let you be thirsty or starve to death.” Long Lin then said with sarcasm, “As a cold-blooded woman from a rich and royal family, do you feel worried only on such an occasion?”

“You …” Xi Wanting nearly could not help telling him what had happened that year. However, she resisted her impulse, became arrogant and said, “Yes, I am a cold-blooded woman, do you regret saving me? If so, it is not too late to give up.”`

“I am not you,” said Long Lin, “I have my bottom line and principle.”

“What is your bottom line? What is the principle?” Xi Wanting could not help asking.

“Those who caused the death of Wanrou will have their just due, and I will not let them shirk it.” Full of hatred, he said, “You are not the culprit. For me, you are nothing more than a passer-by. It is my conscience that makes me decide to take you out of the desert.”

Xi Wanting became silent.

After a long time, she asked, “How long will it take us to go out?”

“Seven days, if I am alone. But with you, at least double.”

“I’m sorry for troubling you. I promise that after going out of the desert, I will reward you for your help.”

“I will not accept the money of Xi family, and I can seek revenge for the death of Wanrou without considering their generosity.”

Xi Wanting also wanted to say something, but in the end she only moved her lips instead of making any sound.

“Wait for me here.” Long Lin suddenly said coldly.

Before Xi Wanting could react to his words, he had rushed out like a cheetah and he ran much faster than the world champion of the 100-meter race.

Xi Wanting looked at him with a puzzled look, only to find him rush nearly 50 meters away to throw out a sharp military dagger fiercely and suddenly.

Long Lin took large steps to arrive there to pull the military dagger out from the deep sand.

A snake was pierced by the dagger at its seven-inch blade.

In front of Xi Wanting, who fixed her eyes on him, he cut off the snake’s head with the dagger. Then he put the snake in his mouth, and scarlet blood surging from the snake body dyed his lips and teeth.

He drank its blood and ate its flesh.

Xi Wanting nearly couldn’t stop herself from vomiting.

But thinking that he did so for her, she controlled herself and tried not to vomit.

Finishing the snake blood, Long Lin stripped of the snake skin, and with a sharp dagger cut a large piece of snake meat. He put it into his mouth and chewed it.

In order to prevent herself from vomiting the valuable water and ship biscuits given by him, Xi Wanting had to look away to avoid watching him eat the snake meat.

While Long Lin was still enjoying his meal, she was quietly deep in thought.

What kind of man was he?

He was so affectionate, but also so cold that it made her feel scared.

When full of hatred, he was an ancient ferocious beast. But in fact, he was kind and selfless. From beginning to end, he did not drink any water or eat any food. But at the moment, he was drinking blood and eating raw flesh.

In addition, he also has a magical healing ability, how does that work?

He was a man like a mystery, an unpredictable man.

Looking for COO

Hello, currently I am running Lesyt all on my own, and frankly, with all the workload I can not deal with it on my own. Therefore I am looking for a COO. You need to meet the following requirements:

  • Be responsible
  • Know laravel
  • Be dedicated
  • Have time
  • Being Canadian is a plus point

First month you will be working sort of as an intern to test you. You won't be paid for that month. If you pass the test, you will be paid, but don't expect much at the start.
It is not a 24/7 job right now.
When you complete a year as the COO, you will have 5% ownership of the company, another 5% the year after!
If you are interested, contact us.

Change theme

Now, this isn't anything great, I just made an example to show the naysayers that we will include theming option later and also improve the overall layout.
For now, you can enjoy this slightly different theme.
