Chapter 362: Chapter 362 – Calm
“I wonder how little Ming is right now…” Seeing this chaotic scene, Chen Rou looked quite worried as she looked into the distance.
Everyone had seen just intense that battle had been; under such circumstances, was Chen Heng alright right now?
Was he injured?
No one knew the answer to those questions, but Chen Rou was desperate to know.
After all, Chen Heng was her little brother.
As his big sister, even though she knew that he was incredibly powerful, and was the Holy Son, she could not help but worry about him.
“I hope he’s fine…” Standing there, she tried to look into the distance, but her vision was obscured by the fog.
In the end, she could only sigh before not thinking about this anymore.
“I’m fine.” As if he sensed Chen Rou’s thoughts, a voice sounded out from ahead.
Hearing this voice, Chen Rou immediately raised her head and looked over.
Without anyone realising it, Chen Heng had appeared there.
He had a tall and straight figure, and looked just the same as before.
The massive battle from before had not caused much changes in him, and in fact, even his clothes looked unsullied and undamaged. Paired with his peerlessly handsome face, he really did look like a Holy Son who had descended to the world.
Seeing Chen Heng, Chen Rou let out a sigh of relief.
“Are you alright?” She asked as she looked at him.
“Yes.” Chen Heng nodded and smiled, “Even though I also took some damage, it’s not a big problem and I’ll recover soon.”
After this battle, he had used up all of the divine energy he had saved up over the past half a year.
That was the price that Chen Heng had paid.
However, this was not a big deal—after all, he could produce more divine energy and accumulate it.
Moreover, compared to what he had gained, that did not matter at all.
Following this, he looked at the others.
Everyone was standing there, and no one seemed injured.
They had not lost a single person in this expedition, and all of them were fine—any of them who had been injured had already been healed by Chen Heng.
If anyone else knew about this, they would feel quite shocked.
Everyone present had come in here prepared to sacrifice themselves, and yet this was how things had turned out.
Standing there, Chen Heng thought to himself before smiling and saying, “We’ve dealt with things here, so it’s time to leave.”
Hearing this, Chen Rou and the others silently nodded.
Following this, they left.
After that battle, even though the Cursed Land was severely damaged, the passageway to leave the Cursed Land was still fine.
This saved them some trouble.
Of course, with Chen Heng’s strength, even if the Cursed Land’s passageway collapsed, he would be able to open up a path.
Just like that, they left from the Cursed Land.
After they left, the changes in the Cursed Land slowly stopped.
After the Origin Curse had fallen, the Cursed Land had stopped collapsing, and began to stabilise.
Outside, after Chen Heng and the others walked out, they were greeted by warm sunlight.
Perhaps to others, the surrounding scenery would look quite normal nd unremarkable.
However, to Chen Rou and the others who had just come out of the Cursed Land, the world seemed incredibly bright and beautiful, causing them to stare.
Compared to the environment in the Cursed Land, the real world was much better.
There was not that boundless curse energy, nor were there the terrifying curses. There was only the warm sunlight and fragrance of nature.
Seeing this, everyone could not help but smile.
After this day, everyone returned to their normal lives, including Chen Heng.
After killing the Origin Curse, Chen Heng did not return to the Fer Principality, and instead stayed in his hometown.
It looked like his life had returned to normal, and that he was living like an ordinary teenage boy.
This made everyone feel quite surprised.
However, Chen Rou was quite happy about this—as a big sister, this was what she wanted.
She did not like her little brother going to fight with those terrifying curses, nor did she want him to be in danger.
This was the case, even though she knew the power that he had.
Her worry for him was not something that she could get rid of.
However, those peaceful days passed quickly.
After a few months, Chen Heng decided to leave again.
“You’re leaving?” Looking at Chen Heng, Chen Rou frowned and asked, “Isn’t it good staying at home?”
“It is.” Chen Heng needed before saying, “But it’s not the place I should be. By now, I have to leave.”
Following this, he told her his goal, which was not to return to the Fer Principality, but to find another place.
After killing the Origin Curse, the law energy that had belonged to the Origin Curse had all gone to Chen Heng.
In order to digest this law energy, and complete his transformation, Chen Heng would have to fall asleep again.
As such, he was preparing to leave and find a place to undergo his transformation.
“Is it the same as half a year ago?” Hearing Chen Heng’s words, Chen Rou frowned and asked, “If that’s the case, it doesn’t seem like you need to leave…”
“If I don’t leave, there will be trouble,” Chen Heng said as he smiled and shook his head, “While I’m awake, no one will dare to do anything, but once I fall asleep, that will no longer be the case.”
After all, everyone knew what kind of power he had.
Even if some idiots wanted to do something, they would be quickly stopped by others.
However, if Chen Heng fell asleep, that would not necessarily be the case anymore.
Even though Chen Heng did not care, he did not want to cause too much trouble.
Moreover, he did not want to wake up in an unknown place again.
He had already experienced this once, and did not want to experience it again.
“Is that so…” Hearing Chen Heng’s words, Chen Rou paused and nodded.
“When will you come back then?” She asked.
“I don’t know,” Chen Heng replied honestly.
He did not know how much time it would take him to complete this transformation, because there were too many variables.
There was his affinity with the law energy, as well as how much faith energy he had, as well as how strong his willpower was. All of those things affected the time.
As such, he did not give a specific timeframe.
“It might be a long time,” he thought for a moment before replying, “At the very least, it will be longer than last time.”
“Is that so.” Hearing Chen Heng’s words, Chen Rou nodded, “Since you’ve already made the decision, then go. When you wake up, just remember to come back to this big sister of yours.”
“I will.” Chen Heng smiled and said, “Also, before leaving, I will leave some presents for you.”
As he spoke, the golden pendant around Chen Rou’s neck began to shine, as if it sensed Chen Heng’s will.
As Chen Rou watched on, the golden pendant began to go through changes, and many inscriptions appeared on it.
Compared to before, it seemed much more ornate and beautiful.
“This is…” Seeing the changes in the golden pendant, Chen Rou looked quite surprised.
“I left behind my mark and some of my power in this pendant,” Chen Heng said as he smiled, “During critical moments, that power will awaken, and should be able to help you.”
“Is that so…” Hearing Chen Heng’s words, Chen Rou fell silent for a moment before smiling and nodding.
Following this, Chen Heng walked out of the room.
Behind him, Chen Rou stood there and watched him leave.
As Chen Heng walked away, the distance between them grew.
This was the case in all kinds of senses.
Sensing this feeling, she felt a bit of a sense of loss, and did not know what to say.
“I hope things go well for you…”
In the end, she could only give him her blessings.
Children would always grow up one day, and say goodbye to their relatives.
Chen Rou had been prepared for this, but she never expected for it to come so quickly.
After walking out from his neighbourhood, Chen Heng did not immediately leave the city, and instead walked about.
He hid his appearance making it so that others could not recognise him.
This body had many memories in this city.
He walked past his school, where many of his classmates were peacefully going to their classes.
Within the quiet classroom, his seat was still there, and no one sat in it.
It seemed that Chen Rou had made arrangements with the school, and had kept this seat for him.
Perhaps it was Chen Rou’s hope that he would return one day and live that peaceful life again.
However, that was not possible.
As he continued onwards, he saw a familiar figure.
She wore a white princess dress and looked quite lively. She had a rabbit backpack on her back, and looked quite cute.
It was Xiao Lan.
After half a year, that sickly girl was now studying at school, and looked like she was full of life.
It was the end of the school day for primary-schoolers, and Yang Cheng and Liang Xiao stood outside the school as they chatted and looked ahead.
When Xiao Lan walked out, they immediately smiled and walked over.
Seeing this, Chen Heng grinned before turning and leaving.
His next stop was the church.
After half a year, the church had become quite different.
The original structure was still there, but it had become much bigger.
Walking in, there were people everywhere, making it difficult for ordinary people to squeeze in .
After what had happened back then, this had become a holy land.
Every day, large numbers of people would come here, hoping to see the place that the Holy Son had once stayed at.
As such, this place had become incredibly lively.
Within the main hall, a familiar voice could be heard.
“The glorious Holy Mother gave us life, and the benevolent Holy Son gave us light…”
The middle-aged Father stood on the stage, looking the same as before.
Behind him, the statue was still glowing with light.
The Holy Son clone was still within it, and its light covered the entire church.
As if it sensed Chen Heng’s arrival, the Holy Son clone within the statue opened its eyes and looked at Chen Heng before nodding at him.
Standing there and listening to the middle-aged Father’s sermon, Chen Heng smiled.
After half a year, the Father’s sermon-presenting skills were just as lacking.
Chen Heng felt that if this place had not become a holy land, it would have returned to its normal state not long after he left.
He found a place to sit and silently listened like the other worshippers.
“Hello,” A Sister came over and looked at Chen Heng in confusion, “When did you come in?”
“Just then.” Hearing that voice, Chen Heng turned and looked at the Sister’s familiar face as he said softly.
Hearing this, the Sister nodded and turned to head to the next person.
However, a feeling of familiarity rose up within her heart.
For some reason, this young man gave her a unique feeling, as if they had met before.
As such, she turned around to ask him about this, but was stunned.
The young man had disappeared, as if he had vanished into thin air.
“Was it you…” She seemed to think of something and stood there, stupefied.
Chen Heng’s body appeared outside the church.
During this time, he had had a look at everything he was familiar with in this city.
As such, he decided to leave and did not waste any time.
With a single step, he arrived at a flat area somewhere.
This place looked quite desolate, and there did not seem to be people living around here.
After arriving here, Chen Heng casually waved his hand.
The ground immediately split open, causing rocks to fly.
Following this, Chen Heng made a stone coffin for himself and got in, before burying it underground.
He restricted his aura so that nothing would spill out, making it so that no one would discover him as he went through this transformation.
Following this, he closed his eyes and waited.
Within his body, the law energy that he had saved up over the past few months began to spread throughout his body.
