To Walk The Mist Chapter 104
"You can go in and find out if you are that curious." Tie Nse said.
"Look!" Nti Anem said pointing at the sky.
At this moment, large figure could be seen in the sky forming. With every strike on Ed, the figure's form became clearer. One could see it holding a sledge hammer, looking down at Ed's form.
"Oh no. let's leave!" without thinking twice, Tie Nse pulled a long distance teleportation array from his space and it activated almost instantly, and the three jumped in without care.
At that moment, the form in the sky had taken up his hammer and pounded down with heavy force. The lightening that descended this time, had a radius of ten metres.
It struck Ed so hard, his bones quaked, making him spit out blood. With this strike, the pill in his system wore off, allowing the tribulation lightening to recede into the sky.
All Ed smelled was his burning skin. He laid there for a while and a figure approached cautiously some moments later.
Ed looked up at the person who approached, weakly. The sky had cleared and the sun was shining directly into his eyes.
"You are still alive?" A woman said in horror. The next moment, his eyes stilled dangerously.
"Don't even think about it." Ed said weakly. No one needed to tell him that this woman immediately wanted to kill him.
"You have seen my face, you have to die." she said and Ed raised a brow. Seeing his relaxed face and mocking eyes, she blushed. She understood why he looked at her that way. She is the one who could not mind her business and approached to see if he was dead, yet she wanted to kill him for opening his eyes and seeing her face.
"Do you want to die?" he asked and she paused.
"Walk away while I am in a good mood." he said and her anger intensified.
"Do you know who I am?" she asked and Ed stared blankly. Suddenly, cold sipped into her bones at his stare. She felt as though he had just seen the king of death. This caused her to take a step back in fright.
"My Lady, we must leave." one could hear the caution in the voice of the man who spoke. She turned to glare at him resentfully, but saw the fear in his eyes and paused. She nodded cautiously and glanced at Ed who had looked away.
"Let's meet again if you survive." she said, but Ed did not spare her a glance. Harrumphing, she turned and left with the elderly man.
After they had gone quite away, the man grabbed her and jumped into a teleportation array.
"What are you so afraid of, Elder?" she asked with indignation at being grabbed like that.
"You have been in seclusion for twenty years so you don't know, there are now people in this world who can kill us and the holy saint will be unable to avenge us. It is best to be careful and not mistakenly cause our own deaths." the elder said and she frowned.
"What nonsense are you speaking, do you know whoo mother is?" she scolded the elder.
"There is only one person that is known to have survived such a lightening storm. If that person is who we just met, then we had to be careful." seeing her frown remain, he explained a little about Tie Nse's new disciple, the rumours around him, the energy manipulator that showed up, the heaven alliance meet and the disappearance of the entire heaven alliance.
After listening, he face turned solemn.
"Hurry then, I must meet mother." she ordered and they increased their speed.
A while later, a teleportation array burned into life back inside the forest by the hell tree. Old Iba stepped out of the with his toe first and his eyes closed. He moved his toe to feel if there was any lightening crackling. The next moment, he fell through the array, face first on the floor, with his backside in the air. He spun and Glared at the at the other two coming out of the array.
"How can you push me through? What if I died?" he scolded Tie Nse.
"You were wasting time. Besides, you were the one that said the effects of the pill should have worn off by now. Why so cautious?" Tie Nse said innocently.
"What if the heavens were still angrily descending lightening?" Old Iba complained.
"Why would they stay and risk us have something else up our sleeves?" Tie Nse asked with a scoff.
