The sun slowly sank beneath the horizon, but the threads of sunlight still lingered in the air, mingling with the dark cloud as if accidentally left behind.
"Little brother Ling, we're only a few minutes away from Kapoti town." Reminded Ma Tu as he was happily chatting with Ling Chen along the way.
They've been traveling for a whole day without taking a break, and now, they've finally going to make it to the first town of Sky Lion Kingdom where they could take a break and relax a bit.
Upon hearing Ma Tu's reminder, Ling Chen quickly tilted his head outside the window where he was able to see the huge city walls of the Town looming in his sight. The city walls were at least fourteen meters high and twenty meters thick.
It was Ling Chen's first time seeing a city wall or a town in his life. Ever since he was born, he had never stepped foot out of the Heavenly Demon Sect, even if he went out, he could only go to the mountains near the sect. As such, everything was new to him.
From afar, Ling Chen could see many carriages and people stopping at the entrance of the town.
Standing on both sides of the entrance were twenty guards. They all wore green robes which were like some sort guardsmen uniforms. Furthermore, each one of them was wielding a sharp sword in their hands.
Some of them just stood guards at the entrance while the others were responsible for checking the belongings of those entering the town and collecting taxes.
On top of the city walls, one of the guards spotted the carriage of the Second Prince and his personal guards in the distance, and a look of shock appeared on his face as he shouted. " Clear out the entrance and make way, the Second Prince is coming back."
"Are these our Sky Lion kingdom army soldiers? Why didn't they have any flags? Who are they?." asked the other guard.
"Stupid, don't you know anything? That's the Red Lion Guards, the personal guards of the second prince. Haven't you heard of their legend!"
"Go and quickly tell the Mayor that the Second Prince is back and clear out those damn mercenaries and merchants at the entrance to make way for them."
As expected, with the arrival of the second prince and his guards marching towards the town, it immediately raised many alarms.
At the same time, the twenty guards that were guarding the entrance turned their heads to look at the distance after hearing their companion's shouts.
Seeing the luxurious carriage as well as the group of guards approaching the town, they quickly sprung in action as they started clearing out the entrance of the gate.
" Make way the second prince is coming."
"Don't you fucking hear me, get that damn stinky horse out of here."
In less than a few minutes, the town's guards cleared out every single person in front of the entrance, leaving a vast empty space in front of the gate.
In the meantime, fifty more guards came out inside the town added together with the other twenty guards, stood in an orderly fashion on both sides of the entrance.
Their lines stretched out to an estimated three hundred to four hundred meters long. The town's guards separated and created an open space for the second prince and his guards while preventing the people from the other side to do anything tricky.
Very quickly, the carriage of the second prince arrived at the entrance. And without stopping, they went straight inside the town without paying any taxes.
Inside the carriage, witnessing these scenes, Ling Chen wasn't the least bit surprised. Although he didn't know much about how the mortal world operated, he already knew that Yang Long's status in the Sky Lion Kingdom was similar to his status in the Heavenly Demon Sect.
After entering the town, Ling Chen's eyes began to shine with excitement. It was his first in a town. The street was extremely spacious and was paved with marble.
The road was swamped with many people, as the Second prince held high authority within the Sky Lion Kingdom, many people took the initiative to courteously greet them as they passed by.
Even when the night was approaching, many people still remained walking about in the streets. Merchant shops littered on both sides of the streets as the crowd gave rise to a bustling atmosphere. Other than horse carriages, there were also other exotic looking demon beasts pulling on merchant carts.
Because Kapoti town was very close to the demon beast mountain range, it attracted all kinds of people. It was the perfect place for hunters, mercenaries, merchants and loose warriors, etc.
Wondrous sights in every direction left Ling Chen captivated. He was focusing his attention everywhere as if he didn't want to miss anything.
The horse carriage continued to proceed onwards in a luxurious street until they arrived in front of a huge building.
The building was four stories high, and it was very grand and imposing. At top of the building was a banner fluttering like a majestic dragon dancing in the wind, with the words "Mary Inn" written on it.
"We've arrived at our destination, young Master Ling." Said the second prince as they parked the carriage in front of the Inn.
According to Yan Long, this was the best Inn throughout the whole kingdom and they had branches in every town and city throughout the whole Sky Lion Kingdom.
" Alright, it's time to take a break and relax before we continued our journey." Ling Chen said with a happy smile on his face.

He was dying to find a place to relax a bit. It was the first he stayed coop up in a small space for that long. The journey was very boring and dull, he couldn't wait to get out this damn carriage.
With that, they got out of the carriage and went inside the Inn. The second prince had already sent someone to rent out the whole fourth floor of the Inn even before they made it to the town.
As soon as they entered the Inn, there was already a pretty young waitress waiting for them and took them upstairs where they were going to stay.
Even though it was his first time in an Inn, Ling Chen could tell that every minor detail was taken note of in the Inn. Anything regarding customer's comfort and convenience was all fully planned for.
The first floor and the second floors were for commoners and mercenaries while the third floor and up were for the people with status and wealthy families.
After they arrived upstairs, the second prince, Ma Tu, Fang Lan and Ling Chen each went to their own room. Fang Lan's room was facing Ling Chen's while Yan Long and Ma Tu's room was next to each other.
It's been a few hours since Ling Chen and his group arrived in Kapoti Town.
At this time, the pitch-black curtain already draped over the sky. The once salmon and purple sky had transformed into a vast expanse of darkness that engulfed the whole town. The night was starless and the moon was nowhere to be seen.
Inside his room, Ling Chen who was sitting down and meditating quietly suddenly opened his eyes.
At the same time, his eyes radiated a frightening light with an immeasurable sharpness, seemingly able to tear apart the whole world. His eyes revealed a glare capable of crossing time itself.
At this moment, Ling Chen's playful demeanor completely changed and his handsome features were now full of dreadfulness with a chilling killing intent as cold as ice.
Using an icy cold tone that shouldn't belong to a ten or an eleven-year-old boy, he said with a demonic smile on his face: " It's time to clean up those rats."
With that, he got up from the bed and jumped down from the four stories building and landed on the ground in the middle of the dark night.
