Chapter 80: The End of Fate
Deep into the night, the maple trail in the city, under the dim street light.
Ye Weiwei sat on the grass beside the river. Under the cover of Han’s jacket, she smiled and asked Han in excitement, “You are terrible, what did you give that guy to drink? I saw his face turn green!”
Han said lightly, “I just put a splash of frost arrow toad saliva in his wine. It’s not poisonous but even espers will inevitably have diarrhea because of it. Who would’ve thought that he was that weak and ran straight for the toilet within a few seconds of drinking it.”
Ye Weiwei laughed happily, “Awesome, awesome! Bad guys like him really need to learn a lesson. We will watch and see if he will still dare to act so frivolously towards me. Your way is better, teaching him a lesson but also not hurting him. If it was Ye Xiangdong and the Ye family bodyguards, this guy will certainly not be going to the Extinction Domain tomorrow.”
“But then again, why do you carry frost arrow toad saliva with you? As well as that little silver needle, it’s probably not legal too right?”
Han shrugged his shoulders, “A senior told me to carry these things with me, and I’ve got a huge bag full. The frost arrow toad saliva is like a beginner level existence among those items. That senior said what’s most terrifying in the extinction domain is not the dark beasts, but humans.”
Han’s so-called senior was Pathless. With the help of the dark net, he bought tons of wicked gadgets for Han and said that they will come in handy in the A-19. Han specially prepared a bag to carry them all.
Ye Weiwei had a little drink, and nodded as if she understood but didn’t understand. “That’s right, the A-19 is one of the more dangerous relics among all the A-class relics. In addition, the moment you enter the domain, the Milky Way Alliance’s law can’t regulate the soldiers inside at all. Murder, robbery, these things are very common. Most of the soldiers weren’t killed by dark beasts but by the hands of other humans.”
Suddenly changing topic, Ye Weiwei’s pair of little paws held onto her chin. She tilted her head, and the pair of jewel-like eyes narrowed and looked at Han. She whispered, “Thank you for accompanying me to so many places today, how can I thank you?”
Han smiled, and asked back, “Did you have a good time today?”
“Yep!” Ye Weiwei nodded heavily, “This is the happiest day of my life! I will always, always remember it!”
Han replied, “As long as you are happy. Originally, I had a lot of things on my mind too. But seeing how happy you are today, I’m also relaxed now, so you don’t owe me anything.”
Ye Weiwei frowned and said, “That being said, but…”
“There’s no but. It’s not early anymore now, I will send you home.” Han gestured like a gentleman towards a taxi.
Don’t know when it started but the stubborn Ye Weiwei began to listen to Han. Maybe it had something to do with Han’s power. Ye Weiwei couldn’t leave Han at any time during the date. Otherwise, no one could predict what kind of tragedy she will cause.
Maybe it has something to do with Han himself. To Ye Weiwei, Han was very special. He didn’t compliment and obey her like everyone in her family, nor would he act prudish in front of her. For instance, Ye Weiwei said she wanted to go check out a nightclub, and Han took her straight there. That had scared the crap out of Ye Xiangdong’s guards, but luckily nothing bad happened.
Ye Weiwei had a look of excitement as she followed Han into the car, her mind was full of the things they did today. The feeling of wearing a dress was quite nice, and it felt even better to be able to hold little animals in her arms. Comparing today to the lonely desolate life she lived before, was the difference between heaven and earth.
Ye Weiwei stole a glance at Han. He was quite thin, somewhat like a gentleman, not very handsome nor ugly, but he seemed to become more good-looking after she spent more time with him.
“Today you took care of me, and tomorrow after you enter the relic, you will know how lucky it is to have me by your side. You little brat, actually carry a one billion bounty on your head, don’t think that I don’t know, you were worried about that right?” Ye Weiwei was a little proud, and she whispered in her heart.
Ye manor’s lights were all on, as the car stopped, Ye Weiwei got off the car and her eyes were wide open.
From the housekeeper Ye Hua to the captain bodyguard Ye Xiangdong, her personal maid Rain and Bamboo, everyone had already packed on. Several frigate battleships were parked in the space in front of the palace, and they were preparing to take everyone to the periphery of Miracle system to meet up with Ye family’s main fleet that were on standby.
Ye Hua lightly sighed, walked to the side of Ye Weiwei and said in a deep voice, “Miss, the Lord has come back.”
Ye Weiwei was suddenly shocked, she looked around and said, “Grandpa’s back? That’s a good thing, but you guys…”
Ye Hua said, “Miss, Lord ordered, he wants us all go home and unite with him. So, while you were out, we already packed up everything. Let’s hit the road.”
An anxious look appeared on Ye Weiwei, she looked around and then looked helplessly at Han.
Han smiled, “Since it’s your grandpa telling you to go home, then you should go, don’t let the elderly worry.”
When he finished, he gently nodded at Ye Hua and Ye Xiangdong, and turned around and prepared to leave.
Ye Hua thought for a second, and said in a deep voice, “Our Lord wasn’t too clear when he gave us the order, but from my past experiences of serving him, he probably received some intelligence and thinks that the A-19 isn’t safe. That’s why he gave that order.”
“Han, our identity, you should’ve guessed already right?”
Han nodded, pointed at the red maple leaf at the gate and said, “As far as I know, only one family in Milky Way uses the red maple leaf as their symbol.”
Ye Hua said, “Yes, and I will solemnly inform Mr. Han, please avoid going to A-19. Firstly, it’s because of our Lord’s warning. Secondly, it’s because you carry a huge bounty, someone doesn’t want you to leave the relic alive.”
Ye family’s manor became unusually quiet, of course Ye Weiwei’s not going for sure, but people of the Ye family didn’t want Han going as well.
“Can you not go too? My grandpa’s words are always very accurate.” Ye Weiwei felt very nervous and she said with an almost pleading voice.
Han smiled as he started walking out, and joked, “I can’t not go, it will be difficult for my home.”
Ye Xiangdong suddenly appeared in front of Han, he was Ye family’s loyal guard, very single minded, so he already had the idea of tying Han with a rope and lock him up until the Meet was done.
Han looked at Ye Xiangdong, then looked back at Ye Weiwei, and said lightly, “I’m also a man, there are things that I need to do and no one can stop me. It was our destiny that we met as friends, so don’t force me to raise my weapon.”
Ye Weiwei was suddenly shocked, as if she just got struck by lightning. Ye Xiangdong didn’t know what to do as well, because he saw that decisive look in Han’s eyes.
Han went around of Ye Xiangdong, and still left.
“Tell Grandpa I’m not going home; I’m going to the A-19.” Ye Weiwei’s little princess temper surfaced again, she puffed her cheeks and said.
“Please return, Miss!” Ye Xiangdong said on one knee.
“Please return, Miss!”
“Please return, Miss!”
Everyone kneeled down and started begging Ye Weiwei.
A lightning bolt struck down, brightening up the dark night. The guard that got struck didn’t say anything and collapsed onto the floor.
The more emotional Ye Weiwei got, the faster lightning struck down at the people around her, but still no one dodged.
Ye Weiwei hung her head down in despair. Little Rain the maid hastily put the isolation cloak onto Ye Weiwei. Right now, Ye Weiwei was gently sobbing. She turned her head, and looked at the direction where Han disappeared into the night.
Such a wonderful day, but it was just one day, and it ended…
Han returned to the hotel, Pan Yulin’s diplomatic team still didn’t return, still working outside, begging those politicians from other nations in Milky Way.
Han was very clear, diplomacy won’t be able to solve Earth’s problem, but he didn’t have the heart to say anything to Pan Yulin. After all, they were so hardworking, and they were willing to lower their status to the lowest for Earth.
When Han opened his room’s door, the midnight bell just sounded. Han suddenly felt like his story with Ye Weiwei was much like the fairy tale story of Cinderella. When midnight came, everything went back to normal.
“This girl was actually someone from the legendary Ye family.” Han shrugged his shoulders and said to himself.
But soon, he forgot about Ye Weiwei and the Ye family. After all, who Ye Weiwei was wasn’t important to Han right now. What was important was the life and death situation he would be facing.
Logged onto the dark net, Han saw Pathless. This should be the last time they meet before going into the extinction domain, inside the relic there won’t be any communication signal, so his fate will all be in his own hands.
Pathless started spewing out information regarding every topic from the structure of the A-19 relic, to the possible danger Han might encounter inside the relic. Unknowingly the sun had come up, and Han took out his backpack from under the bed.
“Run, your only way out is to run nonstop! Don’t stop no matter what happens, until you run out of the area where the crowd is gathered. Remember, inside extinction domains, humans are the most dangerous existence. You would rather run into the nest of thousands of dark beasts, instead of staying in a place crowded with humans. Do you understand?” Pathless said seriously on the other end of the dark net.
Han smiled slightly, raised his backpack with one hand and said, “Rest assured, I have this. If they want to kill me, it won’t be easy.”
Turning off the computer and carefully hiding the dark net login program in his necklace, Han carried his backpack and left. He headed towards the assembly point for the relic exploration stage of the Milky Way Meet.
