Instantly, Garen came to a realization. He did not expect this little
brat to spurt out such a sensible justification.
“Aren’t you afraid of the embarrassment of getting rejected?”
“Embarrassed? What’s the big deal?” The girl pouted, “I’d
rather be sociable and try to make new friends than merely feeling
awkward about it! I enjoy liveliness, the more people the better because
the best things happen when there are more people around. So much better
than just being alone.”
Garen shook his head in disappointment as he knew that there must have
been something wrong with her parents for her to have such mentality, for
her to be so afraid of solitary. She enjoyed making friends because she
was scared of being alone. For what he knew, a person like her just
needed people whom she cared about to spend more time with her, but most
of the time, a little wish as such never be fulfilled.
“Hey, what’s your name? Do you want to leave me your number? This is
my very first time seeing an uncle with such a cool body!”
Unexpectedly, the girl was asking for his number now.
Garen did not expect that he would meet such a human being like this
little girl while he was simply roaming the streets as he was settling
Blue Pole Star’s sister on this planet.
The young lady was making sense. After transmigrating so many times, he
started from trying to blend in voluntarily. But now, he just put on this
“Who knew, I’d be lectured by a little bastard like you…” Garen
laughed humorlessly in his head. Despite being way older than the little
girl, she actually had a clearer vision than him.
“Hey, I’m asking you something?!” The girl was still pestering.
“I don’t have a handphone,” Garen shook his head.
“You’re lying!” The girl pouted. “Can’t you see the convertible
I’m driving?! It’s a convertible, for goodness sake! I’m loaded!
Are you seriously turning down a friendship offer from a sugar mummy like
me? What’s wrong with you!?”
Garen was speechless. This little girl had a weird point of perspective
indeed, who would actually call themselves a sugar mummy?
“Look, I can treat you meals, go play around with you, shop with you,
buy you gifts, heck I can even find other pretty girls to come along, and
you’re still showing me that sour face of yours! What’s wrong with
you?” The girl finally blurted out her true intentions, she did want
Garen knew the hidden meaning behind all these and looked at himself.
His black windbreaker was a bit tight, exposing his obvious inhuman body.
Besides his physique, he did have a certain aura. On the other hand, he
had some touches done to his face so that he looked ordinary and average,
there was really nothing so special about him. So why was this girl so
“Alright, just answer my previous question. What’s with the knife
you’re carrying around? Since it’s not cosplay purposes, what is it
for?” The girl started asking questions again.
“I actually practice martial arts, so I use the knife,” Garen simply
The girl had her who-are-you-kidding-face once again, and so he quickly
added, “This time, I’m not lying.”
He was unsure why he did not just leave but decided to continue talking
to this little girl. Somehow, a casual conversation like this reduced the
loneliness he felt deep inside.
It was evident that this little girl was lonely as well. Just because of
loneliness, the both of them, surprisingly, were able to click. Garen
continued walking along the way as the girl drove her car slowly beside,
the strange combination even attracted passer-bys’ attention, but the
duo was so immersed in their own bubble.
The sky gradually dimmed and nighttime seemed to have fallen.
Walking along the streets aimlessly, Garen has approached the suburbs
without realizing it. It was the urban-rural junction where they had more
stalls set up by the side of the road and people were wearing slightly
“You should go home,” Garen spoke lightly.
“I’m in no rush. Hey uncle, you still haven’t given me your
number,” the little girl smiled in return.
“You’re still young, what do you know about love…” Garen
“You’re just a few years older than me!” The girl was annoyed once
Garen looked up into the sky. The observant girl could pick up a trace of
loneliness from him, it was very mild, but there nonetheless.
“Are you leaving already?” She could not resist but asked. She did
not know why but since her first glance at this man, she already had a
feeling that they were the same kind of people. They were lonely, and
that cool facade they put on was just because they were afraid of being
hurt. His odd but somehow cool getup was just a bonus, allowing her a
reasonable excuse to strike up a conversation with him. She just did not
expect the both of them to actually continue the conversation.
This man had completely no interest in her money, he did not even care
about her convertible. The unconcerned behavior he was portraying since
the beginning was already clear enough for her.
“Where are you going?” The girl asked immediately, “Is your house
nearby? I actually have a friend who lives close by,” she was afraid of
hurting his ego as she knew that most people who live in this area were
not doing well financially.
Garen simply shook his head and stared at the equally lonely girl before
“Fate destined us to meet. Here, I have something for you.”
He had an inconspicuous ring in his palm. The greyish-black ring was
crude and it seemed very normal. With a light flick, the ring landed in
the car and was caught by the girl. The familiar action seemed
well-rehearsed by the two of them.
The girl’s eyes were immediately wide opened.
“I hope there won’t come the time when you have to use it…” As
she looked down at the ring, Garen disappeared into the air.
When she finally looked back up, the girl realized that Garen was gone
already. She searched around looking in all directions, but there was no
sight of him.
She rushed down her car and walked around, but Garen was no longer in
sight along the empty streets. To run into the alleys from where her car
was needed at least five or six seconds, but Garen had disappeared when
she had her head down for a second. It was like he vanished into thin air.
“Hey!! Uncle!!” She could not help but panic and started shouting.
“Uncle! Where are you?!” She did not know why she started yelling
regardless of her own image. There was no reason at all, just her impulse
“Chen Cheng what are you doing!? Why are you making such a big
racket?” A middle-aged couple rolled up from behind in a luxurious car.
“Dad… I…” The girl wanted to explain, but she was immediately
“Your uncle just gave me a call just now saying you’re driving alone
and you were just talking to yourself like someone was actually talking
to you. You totally scared him. What in the world are you doing?!” The
middle-aged man shouted angrily.
“There was an uncle talking to me just now!” Chen Cheng was trying to
“What uncle?! I think you’re hallucinating! You go ask around when
you’re on the way back and see whether anyone saw you talking to some
old man! You were just being crazy and talking to yourself! Come on,
it’s time to go home!” The man shrieked.
“Sigh… Even I was scared and rushed back from the office, I even
missed my meeting,” the middle-aged lady said with a sigh. “Come on,
“I… But I!” Chen Cheng was red all over the face already, then she
thought about the ring and held it up. “Don’t believe it just have a
look! The uncle gave me this thing!”
“Gave it to you? This is clearly just some normal iron ring sold at the
street stalls,” the middle-aged man casted a glance towards the shabby
ring and shook his head. “Alright, time to head home. Chen Cheng, I
know you don’t have anyone to accompany you at home, but you can go
find those nice friends of yours. You know I can just transfer any amount
of money you want into your bank account, and you can go anywhere you
want, but I am begging you here, please stop acting crazy.”
“But I was really talking to an uncle just now! He had this blue
scimitar hung at his waist which was really cool! He was wearing this
black windbreaker, and he’s so tall and strong…” Chen Cheng was
still trying to debate.
“Stop finding excuses to lie to us. Come on, be a good girl and go
home, listen to your father,” the lady said helplessly.
“But I really…” Chen Cheng was so frantic to the point tears
“Alright alright, we believe you,” the lady nodded her head and
reached out to caress her daughter’s face, “Don’t cry don’t cry.
Here, have your ring back.”
Chen Cheng took the ring back, she really was upset and had the urge to
“I’m not lying!”
“You still dare to lie!!” Her dad was furious already, “Just see
He took his phone out and played a recording her uncle just sent him
Chen Cheng took a look and she was stunned for a while as well.
In the video, she really was driving alone slowly and seemed to be
laughing at times or pouting in annoyance. It was as if someone was
really was walking alongside her outside the car.
“I…” She was at loss for words. “I really saw an uncle… He was
the one who gave me this thing!” She was still trying to argue as a
panic started to flood in her mind. Was the cool man just now really just
a hallucination? Was she really psychotic now? Was she hallucinating
“There’s no uncle or whatever, nobody was talking to you! You were
just alone!” Her father’s expression softened a bit as he soon
realized that his daughter was just speaking the truth. If she was really
psychotic… He did not even dare to think about it.
Chen Cheng bent her head and stared at the ring in her hands silently,
her eyes swollen red already.
“Come on, let’s go home. I’ll drive the car,” her mother got down
of her car and walked towards Chen Cheng’s convertible.
Right that moment, a masked man rushed forward and fiercely knocked into
Chen Cheng’s mother. With a swish, a knife was stabbed into her
“No!!!” Eyes wide opened, Chen Cheng stared at the knife which aimed
at her mother’s lower abdomen. Without a single care, she dashed
forward to block her mother.
Suddenly, she could hear a sigh.
With a soft clang, a dark blue knife which had a lightning-like shine
The bandit was paralyzed while her mother was stunned, whereas her father
who was halfway getting out of the car was equally stunned as well.
Meanwhile, Chen Cheng was just staring blankly at the motionless bandit
before her, still holding onto the ring in her hands.
With a plop, the bandit fell knee first onto the ground. The bandit was
not breathing anymore and the dagger in his hands fell to the ground with
a crisp clang.
People started to crowd around them but other then Chen Cheng and her
parents, nobody saw the blue light that shined that instant. Loud
whispers were heard as the crowd discussed what happened, some of them
even called the police.
However, at this moment, the only thing in Chen Cheng and her parents’
mind was that dark blue lightning-like flash. That momentary flash had
already deeply imprinted in their hearts.
The husband and wife finally came around and looked at their daughter who
was in tears.
“I didn’t lie to you…” Chen Cheng muttered, “Really…”
