“Huh?”

Lin Sheng was testing the ability of the Steel Lord he just summoned in the rented unit. All of a sudden, he felt that the connection between Khadula and him began to become vague as if something had hindered the connection between their souls.

“The masters of Redwin?” Lin Sheng closed his eyes, gathered his mental focus, and felt that Khadula seemed to be in trouble.

“Last time Redwin suffered a great loss. They must be very well prepared this time. Khadula can’t die…”

Lin Sheng pondered for a moment.

“It’s the right time for the Steel Lord to try.” He thought for a moment and then turned to look at the old man standing there, waiting.

The Steel Lord was a part of his consciousness that he controlled. After getting the instruction, he bowed slightly, turned and scattered into black smoke, dissipating.

“Hopefully he’ll be able to get Khadula back.”

Lin Sheng planned to let Khadula come back and replace him with the Steel Lord.

The Steel Lord had far more loyalty and subservience than Khadula. He was, after all, a real knight. And Lin Sheng was also very curious. How strong was the Steel Lord?

He paused for a moment and then began to pick up the rubbish left over from the ritual.

Suddenly, he heard police sirens outside. Police cars pulled up in the middle of the road. The officers got out of the car, pulled out their guns and rushed into a yellow villa next to the building he was in.

Lin Sheng packed up the most critical ritual circle and went to the window to look down.

Yellow lines had been drawn around the villa. A fat man who looked like the sheriff was holding a walkie-talkie and seemed to be talking to the police inside.

Lin Sheng sensed a faint wave of evil energy came from the villa and then quickly dissipated.

Several auxiliary police officers carried several bodies out of the villa.

“It seems that the Xylond is not as peaceful as I imagined.”

Lin Sheng returned to the living room. After hiding the rest of the ritual material, he strolled downstairs.

“Okay!” The boss picked up a lot of octopus, spread a layer of red hot pepper sauce on them and grilled them on the charcoal fire.

After sitting for a while, more and more guests came to the stand, and almost all the tables were occupied.

“Do you mind if I sit here?” A man dressed like an office worker in a black suit sat down at Lin Sheng’s table.

“Not at all.” Lin Sheng nodded.

“Thank you.” The man ordered a beer and some oysters.

Lin Sheng noticed the man slowly chewing the oysters with raw garlic cloves.

Oysters were not usually eaten with raw garlic cloves. And, for the first time, he saw someone eating a barbecue meticulously and slowly as if they were eating a formal meal.

Halfway through, Lin Sheng put down his octopus and reached for the free tea.

“Bro, you just came out of that unfinished building?” asked the man suddenly.

“Yes. I rent an apartment there.”

“I heard it’s haunted,” the man sighed. “I was in the neighborhood, and when I saw you coming out of there, I knew you must have been cheated.”

“Hmm… Perhaps.” Lin Sheng poured himself a glass of tea.

“Give me some, too.” The man smiled and held out his glass.

“Thank you. I remember when I was young, I used to live in this building. The reason is simple. The rent is cheap.” The man chuckled. “But…”

“But?”

“But then something happened…” The man looked at him wistfully. “It was at that moment that I made up my mind that I want to be somebody someday. That is my dream…”

“Dreams?” Lin Sheng looked thoughtful.

“Bro, what’s your dream?” The man asked casually.

“My dream… Live more freely…”

“More freedom? Well said.” The man laughed. “That is not an easy goal. You have to give a lot to be able to just see the hope.”

“It’s okay. I’m still young.” Lin Sheng added.

“It’s good to be young. Cheers!” the man said, raising his glass, and so did Lin Sheng.

“So do you what happened to the villa over there?” The man put down his glass and continued, “Some people are too greedy and will never be satisfied with what they have, then things happen. Some people believe that there’s no such thing as a free lunch, while some people think you’re doing him a disservice by giving him something and not expecting anything in return.”

Lin Sheng just listened to the man quietly.

“So, humans are really complicated creatures…” The man sighed.

Lin Sheng took a glance along the direction of the man’s gaze and found him looking at a young police officer outside the villa. The officer looked righteous, had thick eyebrows and large bright eyes that seemed to have energy that lasted forever.

“Humans aren’t complicated at all,” said Lin Sheng.

“Oh?” The man’s eyes fell on Lin Sheng, waiting for his answer.

“Everyone has something they want. He doesn’t want it because you’re not giving him what he wants. It’s simple,” Lin Sheng explained calmly.

“That makes sense…” The man thought for a moment and did not seem to understand this simple truth.

“Nice talking to you.” The man laughed. “Well, how do you get someone who rejected you back into your life?”

Lin Sheng thought about it and then asked, “Why were you rejected?”

“Because of my natural identity….” The man smiled sadly.

“Maybe knock the person out and drag him or her away?” Lin Sheng joked.
