Chapter 5: Escaped days
Although the emperor had ordered to seal off the news of Ximen Yu raping Long Ling’er, nevertheless this news still leaked out, and was spread to whole Tenglong city. Furthermore this news simulated the wrath of many peoples, and many common peoples already jointly made the petition demanding the severe punishment. And Emperor Long Zhan had declared a punishment of dead sentence. Many people had already predicted the end of the Ximen Yu, as raping a princess was a great crime enough to get extermination of an entire family. But Ximen clan was largest clan in the entire Kuang Long Empire, and its influence was also not that simple. Even if Long Zhan can’t move against this clan, nevertheless there was no chance for Ximen Yu to successfully escape from his fate.
“Lord, I beseech you, please save Yu’er, he is our only son!” With a tears flowing out of her eyes, Dong Fangwan was begging Ximen Nu.
“Save, how should I save? If not for your pampering, how could this unfilial son fell into this wretched situation, and even more almost implicated our clan.” Ximen Nu shook off the hands of Dong Fangwan and roared. A tiger, though cruel, will not devour its cub, even though Ximen Yu was bad, but he was still his son, so he also never wish to see his son beheaded before his own eyes.
“It’s all my fault, it’s all my fault, I shouldn’t have pampered him. Lord please save him, he is not even 18 years old.” Dong Fangwan wept, and now she was really regretting. If she had known earlier that it would turned out this way…….she would not have intervened when his father was strict towards him. All this had happened because she loves her son too much.
“Ai, how can I also have the heart to watch Yu’er die? But the emperor doesn’t want to meet me, so I don’t have any measures.” Ximen Nu sighed, and all of a sudden, he seemed a lot older.
“Then how about we rescue him and send him off never to come back again.” The eyes of Dong Fangwan lit up, as if she had seen a bit of hope.
The expression of Ximen Nu changed irregularly, depending on the power of Ximen clan, it was not that difficult to rescue his son, but just like a tall tree catches the wind, Ximen clan was always subjected to the suspicion and jealousy of the emperor, and Ximen Nu was afraid that the emperor would use this as an excuse and try to weaken Ximen clan.
“So be it, I hope he learnt his lesson this time and realize his error and show some repentance.” Ximen Nu decided to save his son, after all he was his own flesh and blood.
“Many thanks lord, Yu’er he will definitely change.” Dong Fangwan released a sigh of relief. Although she may never see her son in this lifetime, but at least his life was saved.
Don’t know how long time had passed, but the limp and numb sensation on Long Yi’s body completely disappeared. Then he woke up from his pleasant and romantic dream of that night.
“How can it be like this?” Lang Yi exaggeratedly slapped his face, and with his both hands he casually touched the metal wall, and unexpectedly discovered that the electric current was already disappeared.
“Don’t tell me……..don’t tell me, I absorbed it all? Fantastic.” Long Yi muttered while watching his both hands. With the exception of white and delicate skin, he didn’t see anything particular. But he had absorbed electric current was certainly a fact.
He didn’t know whether he could use that absorbed electric current as an attack or not, so thinking about it he raised his hand at once. Zi la, a thumb sized lightning was released from his palm, and it leave behind a shallow mark at the metal wall.
Seeing this, Long Yi somersaulted it excitement. And he again wanted to release lightning from his both palms, however this time nothing came out from his palms.
Long Yi was puzzled and stubbornly think deeply about how to release the lightning? After the while, finally he sensed a kind of resonance within his body. ‘Could it be these are electric current? Do they really have life?’
Long Yi calm down his mind, and slowly recall the electric current within his body for a long period of time, now all that was left was to obtain that life-force. Suddenly all over the body, he felt limp and numb, and Long Yi sensed the existence of electric partials. Then he immediately waved his hand, ‘zi la’ a thick lightning was released. ‘This sensation is…………so damn cool.’
Just when he was still thinking to do more research, he heard ‘kacha kacha’ metal friction sound from outside the prison. This sound was just like a sound made when someone walks while wearing a metal armor.
“Eh, the electric spirit stone is opened? It will save our time.” A low-spirited voice came from outside the door.
After some few noises, the metal door slowly opened. And a group of soldiers wearing a thick armor emerged before the eyes of Long Yi. They had a dense murderous aura surrounding them, only the person who had experienced countless battlefield and survived, have this aura. And they looked very strong, so seeing them, Long Yi couldn’t help but became alert.
“Young master Ximen, we got the order from the master of Ximen clan, so please come with us.” The leader suddenly revealed a metal plate, this plate was used for the identification in the Cang Lan continent. And above the plate, a large character of Ximen was written in a flamboyant style of calligraphy. Even though his words were respectful, however his gaze was clearly filled with disdain.
From the memory, Long Yi knew that this was supreme command plate of Ximen clan, also only the clan master have the authority to use this plate. It seems the father of Ximen Yu had send them here to save his son, but it was unlikely for him to know that the soul of his son was already annihilated at an earlier time.
With regards to the disdain in the eyes of his leader, Long Yi also didn’t cared, since the target of that disdain was that damned Ximen Yu. He put on the armor which was exactly same as those armors worn by those soldiers, then he mixed together with these soldiers and followed them. Till now he didn’t know the scale of this prison. This prison was built underground, and it contained many prison cells, and the end of the length and breadth of this prison couldn’t be seen. But there was only 5 special prison cells that was similar to the prison cell where he was locked up. It can be assumed that these cells were only for the terrifying criminals with powerful destructive power. He had never expected he was also locked up inside this special prison cell by luck.
Finally they arrived at surface of the earth, Long Yi blatantly followed the group of soldier outside town. With regards to Tenglong city, although he had the memory of Ximen Yu, nevertheless he was very impressed inside his heart after personally seeing it. This city was flourishing, the buildings resembled the buildings from the Chinese Tang dynasty. The construction was imposing but at the same time it was delicate.
After a long way out of the city gate, the team leader waved his hand and signaled to stop. Then he turned towards Long Yi and said, “Young master Ximen, clan master and madam are waiting for you in the front. Please go ahead yourself.”
Long Yi nodded his head and walked towards the direction he pointed. After a short while, he caught the sight of a pavilion. Within that pavilion, there were 4 peoples. One of them was a majestic middle aged man wearing a purple colored fur robe, and his beard was fluttering in the air; another one was extremely beautiful and elegant woman with a beautiful smile on her face; another one was an aspiring youth general wearing a black armor with dashing eyebrows; and finally a young beautiful woman wearing a pure white robe. She looked like a goddess herself.
That must be his parents, brother and sister. Unconsciously his steps slowed down, as he didn’t know how to face them. They were the important parents and siblings of this body, but they were complete stranger for Long Yi.
