Chapter 1430 - Myron
"Was the ruin dangerous?" Mira asked; we finished the dinner a few minutes ago and now are walking on this beautiful city's streets.
"A little," I replied. I kept my answer short as possible; I don't want to tell her the horror I had faces on a daily basis; it will worry her more, but my answer doesn't seem to fool her as she gave me a look.
The look clearly says she does not believe my answer and will be getting a full answer from me in the near future.
We walked in comfortable silence, hand in hand. We did not talk much, just continued walking, enjoying each other's company.
"How come you decided to partic.i.p.ate?" I asked after a long silence. When she had dropped me off, she said she would not partic.i.p.ate in the compet.i.tion despite her parents' and organizations' insistence.
"Well, sometimes in the face of circ.u.mstances, personal opinions did not matter," she said in a low voice.
"They did not force you, do they?" I asked, "No!" she said, denying vehemently. "They did not force me, but this time there is too much at stake that I have to partic.i.p.ate, even if I don't want to." She said with a mirthless smile.
That I could understand, the stakes for this World Champions.h.i.+p are too high.
The Grimm Monsters are upping their attacks for years, and now, there are constant battles on every battlefront. These are the signs of a huge War; some even said an era war might happen with the decade.
When such wars happen, many organizations fall, even Supremes have fallen in the past ten thousand years, forget the normal organization.
The coming war is making all of them recruit frenziedly, the better rank in the World Champions.h.i.+p or winning it would help them extremely in attracting the talented seeds which would eventually become the pillars for their organization.
Two hours pa.s.sed by, and we stood in front of an extremely opulent mansion, which is bigger than the Mansion we are staying in. It is the Mansion of the Alexander family, and it really does show their glory.
The Orcoz city is quite small, and that makes every inch of land here prizeless. To acquire huge property, one only needs to huge wealth but also great connection; without it, even wealth would not help in buying such property.
"This is it then," I said, seeing the Mansion in front of me. I really wish we would be in Miasmic Paradice; there, I would have been able to spend the night with her without any problem, but here, I could not do that.
"Yes," Mira said reluctantly as she gripped my hand tighter, "Goodb" I was about to say goodby when I stopped as I felt a dangerous presence behind me.
"Little sister, aren't you going to introduce your boyfriend to me?" said a male voice in a confident tone.
When I looked back, my gaze fell on the handsome man who looked to be in his early twenties. He is also Peak Emperor, a powerful one at that as he is intentionally suppressing me with a fine, controlled, very thin thread of aura which he had wrapped around me.
To which, I did not react as if I have not sensed it. The aura thread is harmless; I could destroy the moment I want without any problem.
"Myron, what are you doing here? Shouldn't you be at your party?" Mira asked back, ignoring his earlier question.
"I wanted to meet your boyfriend," he said before his gaze turned to me, "So, you are Micheal, Ive heard many great things about you." He said, and as he appeared beside me to shake my hand.
His movements were extremely smooth as if he had always been in front of me, "All the good things, I hope." I said as I shake his hands.
"Most of them were good," he said as he let go, which surprised me a little as I had thought he would pull some trick try to pressure my hand and say something about me not hurting his little sister, but nothing of that sort had happened.
"I am Myron, by the way," He said, "Micheal," I replied.
"Come, Micheal, there is a small party inside, Ive invited a couple of good friends of mine; I will introduce them to you," He invited.
"Myron, it is late, and Micheal has to leave too, don't you, Micheal?" Mira asked, her eyes are clearly telling me to leave.
"I could spare an hour for the party," I said, earning quite a deadly glare from the Mira. "Its a good thing you are not a spoilsport like my sister, do teach her to have some fun," He said as he led us inside the Mansion.
"You don't want me here?" I asked Mira softly, seeing she still had an angry expression on her face. Hearing my question, her expression eased, and a smile appeared on her.
"Its not that I don't want you here, but my brother likes to play tricks, and I don't want you to reveal anything here unconsciously that you would not like to reveal before the Champions.h.i.+p starts." She said with a sigh.
Seeing her worry about me, a smile couldn't help but appear on my face, "Don't worry, your brother won't be able to force me into revealing something that I did not want to do," I said and gave her a small peck on her cheeks.
Soon we entered the Mansion, which is even more beautiful than the outside, having a spartan kind of interior.
We pa.s.sed by a hallway, and soon we come across a huge hall where a crowd of hundred-something people is present.
All of them are young, releasing the aura of powerful Kings and Emperors. Currently, all of them have surrounded something, watching while discussing it animatedly.
They seemed very excited by whatever they are watching; I first thought it was a fight, but the area is far too small that even Knights could not fight dual in such a small area.
