Chapter 4: The Clash of Ice and Lightning—translated by Miaka_Mei (proofread by Arcedemius; C/E edited by Elkin & lucathia)
“Shuyu, where you goin’?”
Cain faintly called out from behind me, but I simply couldn’t pay attention to anyone else. I was rushing at full speed, my mind filled with only thoughts of Shujun getting in all kinds of crises. She might be wounded, bleeding, or even…
I sprinted, ignoring the small voice at the back of my mind warning me that I should remain because there were hardly any JDT members left at the base, and that Dàgē was with Shujun—but then, why was she throwing so many lightning bolts?
Although I’d always said that Shujun’s ability was frighteningly powerful, her strength was in her fine manipulation of her power. If I had to honestly gauge her power, she wasn’t weak but she wasn’t that much stronger than the other JDT members either, particularly after their pace of improvement skyrocketed after they truly understood the strength and importance of special powers.
Shujun would have to go all-out to produce such a large cluster of lightning. She wouldn’t have done such a thing if she hadn’t truly been in danger, because I had warned her over and over again to exert the barest minimum amount of energy to defeat the enemy. You’ll never know what kind of aberrant you’ll meet around the corner of the next street. One must never exhaust one’s energy unless absolutely necessary.
