Dominion’s End Volume 4: Battle for Lan City
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Chapter 3: Foray into Lan City, Part One—translated by Miaka_Mei (proofread by Arcedemius & Lala Su; C/E edited by lucathia)
We abandoned the car at the outskirts of the city. It was actually still a ten minute drive to Lan City from here, but along the way, we’d noticed a lot of suspicious activity, so it seemed like a bad idea to continue traveling by car. Although a car was fast, the target it created was too large and would easily attract the attention of aberrants. The enemies would be hidden while we were out in the open. It was too disadvantageous for us.
I glanced at Xiao Sha and asked, “Can you produce wind blades with sufficient destructive power yet?”
Before I got kidnapped by the bird, I had previously taught everyone in the JDT. At that time, their results were hardly anywhere near satisfactory. Although their ability had rapidly improved, they weren’t able to use much of it during actual combat. Contrarily, they were more efficient at using it for housework. This was both funny and extremely embarrassing.
Xiao Sha shot me a glance and made a casual flinging motion. I could faintly sense a sudden gust of wind. A squeaking noise sounded nearby.
I walked right over and lowered my gaze to see a mouse-like thing on the ground. It was just that its tail had sharp thorns growing all over it, and the head was hairless and seemed to have a hard, outer layer. Its four claws were black and shiny, and there was even a horn protruding from its forehead. This thing was called a horned mouse. They weren’t very strong but were very difficult to guard against. They’d often charge out of the dark, tear off a piece of your flesh with its horn, and then scamper away.
This mouse was split into two halves across the middle. Its limbs were still twitching, but there was no trace of the lethal weapon which had injured it. The wound was so clean that it seemed as if it had been caused by a single slice from a sword. So clean and precise. It seems that Xiao Sha has really made a lot of improvement.
“Not bad. Your ability has improved a lot.”
