Chapter 45- Silver Locked Battle Boots

“Come with me, I’ll show you the way! ”

Captain Frost says coldly to me after Luo Ling finishes writing his letter and gives it to me.

With the sheepskin letter in hand, I follow and observe Frost from behind. Her long hair drapes over her elaborate shoulder armor, showing her tender side. But, she holds a white jade sword with snow-white armor. Her slender white legs fall on a pair of battle boots, leaving small footprints behind.

 

Once outside, I look up into the snowing sky. Meanwhile, Frost scrunches her eyebrows slightly and says, “The winter’s early this year. Food hasn’t been stocked and fire wood hasn’t been prepared. While the beasts are all around us in the forest, our warriors are low in numbers. I don’t know if we can get through this winter…”

 

Beast Trainer Dalin comes over with his chains and smiles: “Captain Frost, there’s no need to worry. I will hunt for more beasts to ensure that everyone in Dragon City has enough to eat for the winter…Although the seven empires have many talented warriors, their warriors are too pampered to come and help Dragon City. After all, nobody wants to be here without food…… ”

 

Frost brushes the snow from her eyelashes and says with a sense of importance: “No, we must acquire more people of talent. I can feel an evil power to the north of Dragon City. Dragon City was established in this mountain to block these evil spirits from invading our homelands. We need more people to help defend the city and its inhabitants! ”

 

DaLin smiles: “I know, Captain Frost, I’ll try to hunt for experienced men in General Pei’s army and make them work for Dragon City! ”

 

Captain Frost frowns: “If they don’t volunteer to support Dragon City, then what’s the point in bringing them? They’ll just desert the army, and besides, Dragon City’s warriors are blessed with talent and each of them are equal to 10 men. I don’t want to have cowards. They will only make us even more vulnerable … …”

 

Dalin , frustrated, questions: “What do you want? ”

 

Captain Frost hesitantly replies: “I do not know … …”

 

……

 

I stand on the sidelines listening silently. Eventually, I gather my courage and holding my staff, I say, “I…In fact, I am more than willing to join Dragon City. But, I don’t know if you would like to receive me? ”

 

“Oh, really? ”

 

Dalin looks at me, and then throw his head up, laughing, causing the nearby wall to tremble. He then looks at me once more before wiping away his tears and says: “Wow, haha, you’re an interesting one … but … A delicate healer like you wants to join Dragon City? Please, you’re killing me! Can you even kill a Wild Beast? Can you kill a Cyclops? If not, Dragon City does not need anyone to feed its horses!”

 

I clench my teeth and glare at the Beast Trainer without saying a word.

 

Captain Frost walks towards us and observes me with her eyes. Suddenly, her white hand presses down on my shoulders and she lightly smiles: “Your talent is quite high, unfortunately you don’t have the right class. You were born to be a warrior rather than a healer. Do you sincerely want to join the Dragon City? ”

 

I nod: “Yes, very much so! ”

 

Captain Frost laughs: “But you are from Ba Huang City, an adventurer under Duke Luo Lei! Why do you want to give up Ba Huang City’s honor to join the Dragon City, where it is cold and there’s not enough food; a place where evil beasts rampage. Tell me, why would you leave Ba Huang City? ”

 

I make a fist and answer without hesitation: “That’s because I have some slight issues with other people in Ba Huang City!”

 

Frost snorts a quick laugh and her cold face before, became much more human, “Oh, hopefully what you said is true……”

 

I’m speechless, it was real! I’m at odds with [Wrath of Heroes] in Ba Huang City. Liu Ying has invested a lot of money into this game to recruit and make his guild stronger day by day, so I’d probably get killed and killed over and over again. Even if I have courage, I still lack the manpower to go against his guild. Thus, if I joined Dragon City, I’d be happy and free instead of worrying for my life every day!

 

Dalin pleads: “Captain, you must remain calm. This kid is probably can’t even kill a chicken. If he joins Dragon City, our average standards will go down! You must be careful with this guy, don’t accept just because handsome… … ”

 

Frost slightly stunned, turns on Dalin, her eyes reveal a killing intent: “What are you saying?”

 

Dalin trembles with fear and immediately falls to his knees: “This subordinate talks foolishly and should be punished to death!”

 

Frost doesn’t respond to the Beast Trainer, but instead, looks at me and says: “Young healer, I’ve decided. But if you want to join Dragon City, then you must be approved by King Luo Ling. Therefore, you need to get a letter of introduction from Duke Luo Lei. Only then can you join the Dragon City and be one of us!”

 

I take a deep breath and nod: “Ok, I will not let you down! ”

 

After that, I pull out a portal scroll and use it.

 

Shua!

 

After returning to Ba Huang City, I head straight to the city hall with my staff. Inside the city hall, Duke Luo Lei is still sitting in his throne. When I come upon him, he immediately gets up. His wrinkled face turns into a huge smile and asks: “Young man, what news do you bring me? ”

 

I take out Luo Ling’s letter and say, “I found Luo Ling in the cold and barren lands, here is his reply! ”

 

“Ah!”

 

Luo Lei becomes extremely exciting while holding the letter, repeating, “My son is not dead, he is not dead … …”

 

He finishes reading the letter and, several seconds later, says, “I know that his establishment, Dragon City needs resources. But the Frozen wasteland is a restricted area for me, so, I can only send a hundred soldiers to escort supplies and resources to Dragon City. This is already in violation of the Empire’s pact, but I hope my son does not blame me.”

 

I nodded: “He will definitely be grateful towards you! ”

 

Luo Lei smiles and looks at me: “Young man, I am really thankful for helping me accomplish my wish. Here, this is your reward! ”

 

……

 

Ding!

 

System Notification: Congratulations! You have completed the AA main quest [The Letter]. As a reward, you will receive experience +29000, gold +200, charm +7, and get the quest reward items: [Silver Locked Battle Boots]!

 

……

 

Shua!

 

A golden light fell, and I level up to 29. AA-level Main Quests’ rewards were extremely useful and were no joke. I open my inventory and find a new pair of silver boots lying in there quietly. I take it out and look at the attributes-

 

[Silver Locked Battle Boots] (Silver Tier)

 

Type: Armor

Defense: 75

Strength: +25

Endurance: +21

Additional: Increases attack damage by 0.7%

 

Required level: 30

 

……

 

Damn, the properties of these level 30 silver boots are really good. It helps with two stats adn they both gain 20+ points. In addition, there’s the 0.7% damage bonus. This is the perfect equipment for players at this stage! However, I am just a Healer and it isn’t useful for me at all … … Wait, Captain Frost said that if I join Dragon City, I can change classes. That means, I might be able to use these boots afterall, so I put them back in the parcel!

 

I look at Luo Lei once more: “Duke, I have one more request … …”

 

“What is it?” “Luo Lei looks at me in surprise.

 

“The evil beasts are rampaging around Dragon City, which creates a dangerous situation for warriors stationed in the city. So, as an adventurer from Ba Huang City, I would like to contribute to Dragon City. I hope that you can write a letter of introduction for me to give to Luo Ling, so that I can become a member of Dragon City. However, my heart will always belong to Ba Huang City….”

 

Luo Lei thinks about it for a long time and finally nods: “Yes, you are my benefactor who has reunited my son and I. I will write one for you!”

 

After a few seconds, I head out with the letter of recommendation!

 

……

 

I repair my equipment, resupply my potions/pills and portal scrolls, before heading out!

 

But at the northern gate, a group of players were blocking the way and creating lots of noise. Many of them are from Prague!

 

“No, how can you make such a decision. Qing Qian has helped developed our guild so much. How can you give her such a heavy punishment for something so small?!”

 

“Yes, Uncle, please reconsider…”

 

……

 

In the crowd, Yan Zhao Warrior stands there dressed in a glowing armor and with his cold eyes, he raises his sword and yells: “Quiet! ”

 

The hundreds of players from Prague immediately go silent.

 

Yan Zhao Warrior sweeps his eyes around and in a low voice: “Qing Qian is a daughter of my friend, so I certainly don’t want to mistreat her. But, since we are a big guild, Prague must abide by its rules. I repeatedly said that in the early stages of this game, Prague will give priority to leveling and killing bosses. We will not involve ourselves with intentional PKs. Moreover, we shouldn’t go and provoke other guilds. But because of one person, Xiao Yao Zi Zai, Qing Qian took members from Prague to provoke [Wrath of Heroes]. She must be punished, so she will be kicked out of Prague for a week, I’ll add her back in afterwards!”

 

The group of people stands there silently.

 

Qing Qian takes out her blood dagger and looks at the people. She then says: “I know all of you mean well, but I … … it’s ok, you don’t have to say anything. I’ll gladly accept uncle’s punishment and will leave… … but, Prague isn’t an official guild in game, so I don’t know how to quit…… ”

 

Qing Qian grins while Yan Zhao Warrior’s face turns green.

 

……

 

Sha sha!

 

I drag my staff and move forward, separating the crowd. Step by step, I head towards Yan Zhao Warrior and say, “Uncle Yan Zhao, it’s all my fault, so please don’t take it out on Qing Qian. Rather, I’ll take responsibility!”
