Elaro quickly and succinctly told Hungri what had transpired. While that happened, his invisibility also wore off.
“And what are you doing now?” Hungri said, exasperated, “Go back quickly and grab that professor. We can interrogate him for ‘his’ location and we can use him as a hostage. You really left something that useful back there?”
Elaro had been illuminated. He immediately thought about doing what Hungri said and going back to grab the professor, but they had already walked through a hallway. If he were to leave now…
He suddenly remembered that the system had many items that might be of use. Elaro hurriedly said, “Will, I want to take out the Red Cloak.”
Elaro draped the cloak onto Hungri. Hungri was absolutely baffled. Why the hell am I wearing a cloak right now? And it’s a bright red cloak without any use when it comes to staying stealthy. It’s so flashy!
Elaro leaned near Hungri’s ear to quietly said, “Wearing the cloak will trick people into thinking that you’re very powerful. I’ll be back soon.”
So that’s why. Hungri nodded. He watched Elaro sprint off in the direction they came in, then looked back at the other person who was still left: Liola, whom Elaro had said was a summoned helper.
Liola retreated a step, with an expression full of wariness. That red cloak was very ostentatious. He couldn’t help but think of another ostentatious but dangerous character!
Hungri looked at the golden-haired child in Liola’s arms. Although he couldn’t see their face, the system had said that Elaro and his teacher were both present. Then that must be Teacher Grisia…
He looked away, but also didn’t approach Liola. He simply said, “We’ll waiting for Elaro to come back.”
Hungri hadn’t come any closer, which made Liola relax a little.
Elaro used his fastest speed to rush back to the room they had been in, using a kick to knock out the two soldiers with knives in their knees. Then he grabbed the professor on the ground.
At this moment, the water mirror suddenly appeared. Elaro hadn’t expected the water mirror to appear where he was.
A person wearing a tight-fitting red shirt came out from the mirror. There was even an odd mask that covered the upper half of their face.
Facing someone who didn’t show their face, Elaro was on alert. Although Will said that the other person had agreed to fight, it hadn’t said who the summoned party would be fighting!
The other person directly took off their visor, revealing an elegant face. He smiled and said, “It really is you, Angel Ela. Why have you grabbed that person?”
Hearing that nickname, Elaro was stunned. It was only then that he realized the other person had a head of very unique and very familiar silver hair. He cried out, “Little Ah Ye?”
The other person smiled and nodded.
They had just parted with a little kid, and not a day later, he appeared all grown up? Elaro was a bit confused. He asked in bewilderment, “But Will clearly said the person we were summoning was ‘Dark Sun’?”
Ri Xiang Ye laughed and explained, “When I’m wearing these clothes, the name I go by is Dark Sun.”
O.K. This situation is kind of like how I’m Elaro but when I wear the Sun Knight’s uniform, my name becomes the Sun Knight?
Ri Xiang Ye stared fixedly at Elaro.
“When I was little, I thought that was only a dream, a beautiful dream I imagined to escape reality. It’s been a long time. I had completely forgotten about it until now, until Will called me. Then those memories suddenly came rushing back.”
“Has it really already been that long?” Elaro wasn’t sure what to say. “Are you still Charles’s Young Master? Is Charles doing well?”
“Of course. We have an Endelis contract. Charles will always be my butler.” Ri Xiang Ye smiled as he reminded, “You haven’t told me, but who is that person? That can’t be the person I’m meant to fight, is it?”
Ri Xiang Ye remembered that he had agreed to fight, but he was only going to be here for one hour, so he wanted to make use of the time.
“I have to find someone here. But Liola said this place has ‘security cameras’. So Hungri suggested that I grab this person and use him for questioning and as a hostage.”
Ri Xiang Ye nodded and surveyed the surroundings. Then he looked at the large sheet of glass in the wall.
“Too bad my Death Scythe couldn’t come.”
He grumbled. His hair suddenly shone and extended. A large hole was cut in the glass sheet, exposing the neighboring room.
Ri Xiang Ye leapt over, faced the thing on the table, and began to operate it. Elaro couldn’t tell what he was working on, but Ri Xiang Ye seemed to have already found what he was looking for.
“As I thought, there are computer facilities here.”
Ri Xiang Ye connected to the network. Although he didn’t know what Elaro needed to do, he had already begun executing a series of tasks.
“I’ll cut off any surveillance equipment and illumination, then sound the fire alarms. Um, I remember when I was little, there were a lot of scary monsters roaming around. The research equipment can’t be shut off. Transfer the laboratory blueprints. Oh, there’s a lot of experimental data. They really are researching the monsters…”
Elaro finally understood why Charles was always going on about how his young master was so brilliant and so capable. It’s because his young master really is amazing!
“Ah Ye, I’m going to go. Teacher is elsewhere and I’m worried that they’re in danger.”
Ri Xiang Ye nodded. “O.K. Let’s go!”
Elaro doubtfully asked, “You don’t have to be here to use that thing?”
“No.” Ri Xiang Ye shook his head and said, “The technology here is so outdated. I’ve already accessed their network so I don’t need a physical connection with it. Also, you don’t have to drag along that deadweight on the ground. I already know more than he does.”
Yup. Elaro didn’t really understand, but he confirmed once more, Little Ah Ye really is amazing!
“Tell me on the way what the mission is. I have an hour. At least let me help you complete your main quest!”
Elaro was stunned. Complete the main quest in an hour?
Ri Xiang Ye turned his head and showed an angelic smile.
“When I was little, you were my angels. Now, let me be your angel instead!”
