“Farewell, Fellow Daoist! The doors of the Profound Mist Sect will be open for you and your sister.” Old Man Ammon said and his form together with the rest of the Order of Moira departed in a flash of light.
“Can we go now, brother?” Uwyn peeked from behind Maru to gaze at the empty streets of gates. This was far from the crowded and busy atmosphere just an hour before.
“Yes. Let’s go, Uwyn.” Maru nodded and rode on his mechanical vehicle.
The rectangular machine started its engine and vanished in an instant leaving behind a dazed girl with her white horse.
“BROTHER! YOU CHEATER!”
Uwyn yelled and a cute smile appeared on her face.
“Come, Fiona! Let’s show that cheater how fast we can be!” and afterwards she put on a determined expression.
“NEIGH!” Fiona answered and the two flew off to the vast distances of the world.
“Is the mark gone?” Ayla asked.
“No. All our powers have been totally sealed inside that magical beast. It could command us to die and we’d be helpless to do anything to it or to its masters.” Ammon replied.
The group had returned to their sanctuary and the air was even gloomier than the last.
“HAHAHA! That’s okay though. I don’t think that little pony would kill all of us later when it could have already done that earlier. Yes?” The rugged voice of Garett resounded in the place.
“Perhaps.” Averante seconded the conjecture.
“We can only hope for it to be so.” Ammon sighed and looked beneath the clouds.
He still had to pick a disciple even after all this mess.
No better than the present though, he waved his wooden cane and a new platform emerged into everyone’s sight.
“The trial continues.” Ammon thought and prayed that it would be peaceful the second time around.
“Where is the most beautiful city in the world, Madame Ais?” Maru asked the system after he had resurfaced from the cold waters of the deep.
“It is due north, Maru. But that place is not located in this continent. Do you want the coordinates?” Madame Ais replied.
“Are there people on other continents, Madame Ais?” Maru was curious because he had seen that lady with wings earlier.
Normal people don’t have that. Or do they in other places? He wanted to know.
“Affirmative, Maru.” the system responded.
“And what about that lady? Is she human? Like me?” Maru persisted.
“Negative, Maru. That woman is of a different breed. She is of a race called The Celestials.
Their kinds roam in abundance in one of the continents of this world.” Madame Ais answered.
“Hmmm. Just show us the way towards the most beautiful city in this continent then, Madame Ais.” Maru decided.
He did not want to go to a place where he knew he’d be discriminated against. Even humans do that very well to themselves.
Maru could not imagine that he and his sister would be welcome in other continents. And trouble was the last thing he wanted in this trip.
He had had enough trouble to last him a lifetime.
