Chapter 94. Entrance Exam (16)
They looked like a woman’s footprints.
“We’re not the first…”
Lilith remembered someone. Maybe he had the same thought.
There was only one person who could surpass them all.
The man did not enter the cabin, but took out a potion.
Lilith didn’t know what it was.
But she remembered that every time a battle was about to happen, the man drank some of a potion. Then, the man’s eyes dimly glowed.
He lifted his mask slightly and lifted the bottle to his mouth.
The masked man drank it completely.
Lilith’s eyes grew large.
It was the first time she had seen this.
He prepared himself for a great battle.
Finally, he would leave.
Now they would have to part.
Her heart strangely dropped.
She would only be a burden in the future.
She could understand.
Lilith could not be his companion.
She understood his attitude a little, she wouldn’t be much help to him.
She was saddened by his departure without a farewell. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
“…I’m tired. I’ll rest in the cabin.”
Lilith entered the cabin first. She picked up wood that was stacked and threw it into the fireplace to light the fire. Then, she plopped down on a long wooden bench.
She was sure he would be gone when she looked back.
She shouldn’t be sorry, because she knew this would happen.
The roads around the cabin were muddy, as it had rained the night before.
He could find footprints there.
He followed the footprints to the entrance of route A.
Since the entrance exam began, he had not heard a single word from Zion.
He never thought he would find these tracks.
It seemed that she had no companions.
Undoubtedly, she had great power.
He knew that the time had come to do his best.
He returned to the cabin.
He threw wood on the dim fire in the fireplace, then looked for Lilith.
She was asleep on the bench. She looked like a little girl.
He approached Lilith. He placed three candies in her hand.
She wasn’t helpful, but he wasn’t bored because he was with her.
He was sure she would find a way to continue from this point.
He left the cabin and unfolded the map.
Sylverine had chosen Zion as his rival, he did not plan to follow her.
He checked route B. Just as he was about to enter route B, someone shouted behind him.
When he turned around, he saw Lilith standing there.
She walked towards him with an angry expression.
“I thought so.”
“You wanted to run away while I was asleep?”
Lilith grabbed his wrist.
Then she slipped a potion into his hand.
“It’s the Umer family’s special stamina potion that I didn’t want to use until now. Drink it when you’re tired. I don’t need it.”
She looked to him for this. He put the potion away.
Her expression was odd, it showed bitterness.
She seemed to expect him to speak, but he remained silent.
He turned away to continue on his way.
He could hear the words Lilith muttered because he had drunk Griffin’s Potion, which also heightened the sensitivity of his senses.
A huge explosion echoed through the Range.
Trisha hid behind Cecil in surprise.
Cecil’s gaze went up to Grace Range.
All eyes were on that direction, except for Trisha’s.
Cecil looked at the summit of the Grace Range with her telescope.
A blue light flashes several times through the trees.
She pulled out her map to check the location of the light.
“I think… it’s route A.”
Then his cousin said,
“Yes, it sure is Zion.”
“She really is as scary as the rumors say.”
Then another explosion sounded.
“This explosion was somewhere else.”
A companion pointed to another location.
A white light appeared not far from where the blue light had appeared.
Cecil looked at the map.
“It’s route B. Is there a person there?”
“Huh? Who’s as fast as Zion?”
The white light advanced at an extraordinary speed.
It was clear that this was no ordinary person.
It even seemed likely that he would arrive before Zion.
Bertin, Cecil’s cousin, muttered,
“It’s not possible.”
