Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Chapter 4: The Rescue Mission Unfolds —translated by lucathia (proofread by EvlNabiki & elisa)
“Have him drink some healing potions, then throw him into the same cell as the elf.”
Barely conscious, Bai Saya seemed to hear Mannen’s voice. Then, a bitter and sour liquid was forced into his mouth. If it weren’t that he knew that a single stab from Mannen could kill him if Mannen wanted to, Bai Saya really would have thought he was being fed poison.
Soon after, the potions forced down his throat began to take effect. The bitter and sour taste traveled from his mouth to his entire body. Coupled with the pain from his injuries, Bai Saya could only curl up and hug his stomach painfully. Cold sweat covered his entire body. In the midst of this, he could feel himself being carried to yet another place and then tossed onto a cold floor.
Finally, he could no longer stand the aching pain coursing through his entire body and lost consciousness once again.
When Bai Saya opened his eyes again, he found that the aching pain caused by the potions had disappeared. Even the injured parts of his body no longer felt painful.
He lay there unmoving, a bit dazed. He directed his gaze toward the ceiling, staring aimlessly. His act of revenge had failed, and he had gotten captured as well. From what Mannen had said earlier, it seemed that he wanted to sell Bai Saya as a slave. After suffering through countless hardships to find his foe, this was the result… The bitterness seeped into his heart, so bitter that his eyes grew moist.
“No, Shifu has told me that men must not let tears fall so easily.”
Bai Saya sat up and forcefully patted his cheeks. When he raised his head, his face was once again calm.
I can’t give up. I’ll take a look around first, and then make a plan.
He surveyed his surroundings, but he didn’t make it far before realizing with a shock that he wasn’t the only prisoner present. The other person had their back facing him. They were silent, sitting cross-legged in the corner, and had a head of long, blond hair that was so brilliant that even the dark prison room couldn’t hide it.
