Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Nock! This fierce horse’s name is Nock!
“It’s a purebred Ferghana horse that we captured from the frontlines during the battle with the Empire! Moreover, its physique is much bigger than ordinary Ferghana horses.
“Even compared to all Ferghana horses, Nock is definitely the fastest and the one with the best endurance!”
Mike gently stroked Nock’s back.
“So, I see that your name is Nock?”
Seeing that Mike really liked the horse, Rowe continued.
“Since Big Brother Mike likes Nock so much, I’ll gift him to you! But…”
“But what?” Mike asked.
Rowe smiled and said, “Nock has a mischievous nature and never lets strangers get close to it.
“It even took us a lot of effort to bring it here!”
Upon hearing this, Mike smiled and said, “How hard can it be?”
Mike immediately jumped onto Nock’s back.
Somehow, Nock did not have much resistance to Mike’s move.
On the contrary, it seemed to be very willing to allow Mike to ride on its body.
Actually, Mike had received a hidden message from the System that allowed him to see Nock’s character.
The message said that Nock had been born to love the strong, and Mike just so happened to be a powerful and strong person.
Thus, it was natural that Nock allowed Mike to ride on its body.
Everyone could not help but sigh when they saw that Mike was now freely able to ride on Nock’s body.
“It looks like Nock really likes you!” Romon said.
Nock did not struggle at all as Mike rode on top of it. In fact, it could even be said that he seemed a little excited.
Then, Mike continued to speak.
“It’s getting late! Since I’ve already gotten Nock, I’ll set off for the Ancient Law Town now!”
Mike did not even give Lilian a chance to wish him goodbye.
The horse neighed, and Mike rode Nock away.
He soon disappeared from everyone’s sight.
“Seriously, is it really that urgent? He left without even saying goodbye!”
Rowe and Romon, who were standing at the side, began to comfort Lilian.
The two of them spoke.
“Big Brother Mike only left in such a hurry out of concern for the people of Ancient Law Town! Don’t worry, with his strength, he will definitely be able to complete this mission to save Ancient Law Town!”
Lilian turned her head to look at Rowe and Romon to speak.
“Do you think I don’t know? I’m not as stupid as him. Right now, you have no way of dealing with the Ancient Law Town. Then, you just so happen to meet someone who is both capable and willing to solve the crisis of Ancient Law Town. Of course, the two of you can’t wait for him to go as soon as possible!”
“Why else would you give that horse to him at this time?”
After listening to her rant, Rowe seemed to want to give an explanation. However, Romon stopped him.
He then spoke to Lilian.
“I’m sorry, Miss Lilian, we brothers are not able to do anything about the Stone Tablet Army over at Ancient Law Town. However, we are doing all this for the sake of the people. Don’t you think so?”
Lilian looked at Romon, before continuing, “I really don’t understand you. What do you think Mike Is? He’s not a subordinate that you can order around!”
Romon saw that Lilian was a little angry, so he continued to speak with an apologetic smile.
“I’m sorry, Miss Lilian. How about this, when Big Brother Mike comes back, I’ll personally apologize to him. What do you think? Since he’s already gone, we are unable to summon him back now.
“Moreover, with our speed, we aren’t able to catch up with Nock’s speed at all!”
When Lillian saw that what Romon had just said seemed to make sense, she did not pursue the matter any further.
She just continued to say, “Don’t let it happen again. If he finds out, he’ll definitely be sad!”
In the meantime, on Mike’s side, he had already ridden Nock out of Xinluo City.
Mike seemed to enjoy riding Nock.
Mike and Nock flew through the woods and over the grass.
Mike loved the thrill of riding like this.
However, when he compared it to the current crisis in Ancient Law Town, he decided to put such thoughts aside.
“Full speed ahead!” Mike said to Nock.
Nock seemed to understand Mike’s words. Mike could clearly feel that the speed was a few times faster than before.
Simultaneously, Mike studied the instructions in the hidden message as he continued to drive Nock forward.
After riding for a while, the sky gradually started to darken.
Through the instructions in the hidden message, Mike also found that he was still a long way from Ancient Law Town.
Since it was already late, Mike decided to find a place to rest for the night and wait until the next day before continuing on his journey.
“Let’s do it,” Mike said to the System.
“System, please help me find a place to stay nearby!”
[ Looking for the nearest place for you to stay. Please wait a moment, the nearest place to stay is… ]
Looking at the notification in the System, Mike felt a little disappointed.
The System showed that the nearest place to stay was not only far from Ancient Law Town, but also required a lot of detours.
“Let’s just forget it!
“I think we should just stay here for the night!” Mike said to Nock.
Then, Mike transferred his divine power into his eyes.
Very quickly, he found a cave.
“Nock! Let’s go!”
Then, Mike rode Nock in the direction of the cave.
When they arrived at the cave, Mike’s stomach indicated that it was hungry.
Mike looked at Nock and asked, “Nock, are you hungry?”
Nock neighed, as if to express its answer.
Mike could sense Nock’s meaning, so he continued to say, “Good! Then I’ll treat you to a good meal later!
Mike looked at Nock and spoke with doubt.
“You’re a horse, can you eat meat?”
When he heard Mike’s question, Nock became unusually excited.
It neighed and seemed to agree with Mike’s question.
“Okay! In that case, I’ll treat you to a taste of my cooking later!”
