Chapter 81: Saint Magus 2.44
The battle ended within an hour.
Elvis placed the magic staff in his hand back inside the storage bag and raised his head to look at the mages standing on the city wall, their gazes filled with worship. With a gesture from Elvis, Eli approached the tightly closed city gates with Elvis and Li Luo on his back.
The mages on the wall immediately understood Elvis’s intentions and quickly commanded people to open the city gates for him.
Behind the gates, a middle-aged man with white hair around his temples waited. It was the city lord and, after seeing Elvis come in, he quickly stepped forward to bow deeply.
Rising up from his bow, the lord stared blankly at Elvis’s face in shock. He never thought that the savior of their city, who had to be at least a six star Great Magus, would be so young. However, his expression quickly became increasingly enthusiastic‒ such a young man and already at the level of a six star Great Magus! This was someone to properly be friends with.
“……Thank you for saving all of our people. I’m the lord of this Moore City, Edson. I’m unsure as to what I should call you gentleman?”
With no plans to conceal his identity, Elvis directly told the lord his name. Even if Elvis didn’t hide his identity and exposed himself, he still had his warrior ability. He could still protect himself and Li Luo.
“My friend and I have just emerged from a magic relic and are unaware of what is going on. You do not have to be thankful, as long as you tell me of the situation outside.”
Edson nodded his head. “This will be a long story and the sun is setting quickly now. Why don’t we head to my house for dinner first, and I’ll carefully explain the situation after the meal? You’ll be able to stay the night as well- consider it part of my gratitude.”
Elvis had no objections. As a city lord, Edson would be better informed than the average person and this would be much easier than searching for rumors. It was better to follow Edson’s suggestion and so, Elvis and the others followed.
After they had eaten and drank their fill, Li Luo and Elvis listened to Edson’s explanation. Unable to resist falling deep into thought, Elvis was surprised that so many unexpected things would occur throughout the four years that he and Li Luo were gone.
At the moment, this continent is filled with a large number of otherworldly creatures. If they are not eliminated, eventually, the creatures would forcibly take over the human continent.
The current situation, in simple terms, is a territorial battle between all the creatures of this continent and those of the other world.
Li Luo picked up a cup of tea on the table and took a sip. He had been aware of this issue for a long time now. The current situation, compared to the original text, was actually better. After all, Elvis had left from that place one year ahead of schedule and he had reached the same rank as was set in the book previously.
Although that was the truth, there still wasn’t much optimism on the other side.
On their rushed journey towards Moore City, Li Luo was always with Elvis and the two were rarely separated. And since Xiao Qi would never come out when Elvis was there, any opportunities to summon the system were found with great difficulty on Li Luo’s part.
After all that trouble, the answer Xiao Qi gave him had Li Luo feeling somewhat complicated.
As expected, he would be unable to tell Elvis anything about his origins or the development of this book.
Elvis coming out of the magic relic a year earlier in advance meant that Li Luo would have to return to his original world earlier too.
He didn’t want to be separated from Elvis so quickly, but he didn’t know what to do.
With these thoughts, Li Luo couldn’t help but let out a sigh.
Hearing the soft sigh, Elvis turned his head and looked at Li Luo sitting beside him. A light flashed in the pupil of Elvis’ blue eyes and he turned to look at Edson.
“My friend and I are tired; we’ll go rest first.”
Edson naturally didn’t say a word and quickly instructed one of his maids to bring Elvis and Li Luo to the guest room that had been arranged long ago.
