The Uncle and the Pitch Black Tracker (part 4)
Zhuang Zi said that life, when between heaven and earth, needs a foundation . It’s hard for it to remain detached .
Maybe life begins by undergoing worries and hardships . No matter if they are big or small, unavoidably, people must be able bear many things . And as they sweat profusely, they will toil hard .
I am Zhai He: Zhai He who opened a weapon shop .
No matter who is blocking my way, I will not give in .
Like just now, I decided on my own to cross over ghost of the hero, Leon, and chose to move forward .
And so, my vision had become clearer .
“Tsk, who are you really? Leon, or someone else? You’re really so unreasonable . Inspection Official, kill that demon! Isn’t that your duty?”
Right now, I couldn’t control my body to respond . My brain and body’s connection had been severed .
When my body received the attack, my pain center did not react .
For that same reason, when my brain wants to operate my body, my body doesn’t respond in the slightest .
Thus, I was only a bystander . I probably couldn’t even be said to be an audience member, because I could not move my gaze to Carolina .
But I felt what Carolina was doing .
She raised up her pure white and silver sword, filled with the might of the God of Holy Light,
Later, I will kill her .
This body that could not be controlled, will kill her before her sword falls .
Because the only reason I drew my sword was Little Elan .
This was the first time I had felt such a deep despair that I was unable to see the bottom . This wasn’t a despair because I saw the difference in strength when I met that man in battle, but a despair that was because I really wasn’t able to do anything . I couldn’t protect anything, because this destruction came about from my own hands .
That man stopped . He struck a pose and wore a sneer on his face .
That extremely crushing pressure lessened slightly, and my eyeballs could turn slightly .
That man wanted me to watch the scene where Carolina killed Little Elan, where Little Elan was killed by a companion .
What I was worried about was that I would kill Carolina .
Carolina fiercely bit her bottom lip . The rims of her eyes were red .
But she still raised the sword .
“Carolina…… . jiejie…… . ”
Losing all of her will to escape, Little Elan powerlessly looked at Carolina, softly calling out her name .
My body had already become taut . When Carolina swung her sword, everything would become irreversible .
I watched Carolina attentively as she raised her sword, but she had returned to the icy cold persona from the first time we met .
“Demons, I cannot forgive you . ”
The silver sword trembled slightly, but Carolina’s dark green eyes were full with resolve .
This expression made me feel very sad . No matter what beautiful memories we made, the deep-rooted system of beliefs were still in place . Carolina was good, Jinwen was good, but their actions were chained down by the invisible fetters of this world .
As for me, I was spurred into motion by outside forces .
In the end, we have no freedom .
If I could control my own body, I would definitely be showing a very bitter expression .
“Almighty God of Holy Light, bestow your follower with the light that illuminates all darkness . ”
The familiar white light gradually burst out from inside the sword .
I gripped the sword in my hand . My body was already taut like the bowstring of a bow and arrow .
I tried my hardest to make myself look away from Carolina . I suddenly felt that my body was being catapulted like a bullet .
With a clang, the sword in my hands crashed into that man’s magic armor .
Was it blocked?!!
That’s not right .
That man’s expression changed slightly .
Bitterness and anger met, but it didn’t succeed in blocking my sneer .
Not bad .
It’s not like that!!!
“Inspection Official was also sheltering on a demon?! You’re both traitors to the human race, followers of that bastard Leon!!”
Carolina’s sword ran through that man’s abdomen . The sword point was ripping with scarlet blood .
“The demons must be purged . But Little Elan isn’t a bad person!! I believe in Master’s decision!”
Carolina had used all of her magic in one go, finally creating a wound in the pitch black man .
Those dark green eyes were full of determination .
Carolina pulled out the silver-white sword and received that man’s anger-filled punch . Her body was immediately sent flying . She crashed into the wall and was knocked out .
Up until until the last moment, she did not have any regrets .
In the world in my mind that was full of swords and corpses, Leon’s shadow was still really close to me .
But I was not afraid anymore .
No matter what I become, Carolina had shown me a possibility .
Humans are able to surpass all boundaries and conventional logic .
Just as Gidé writes in Straight is the Gate:
Those who seriously pursue the true eternal glory, must abandon worldly glory .
