Mike then picked up a wooden stick that was lying randomly in the cave.
He raised his hand and lit the wooden stick, turning it into a burning torch.
Mike then inserted the torch into the stone wall of the cave.
Mike looked at Nock and said, “You just wait for me here now!”
Then, Mike walked out of the cave alone.
He walked towards the forest.
Mike gathered the power of the Divine Body in his body and focused it on his senses.
Soon, he noticed many animals in the forest.
After distinguishing several animals, Mike decided to target the grouse as tonight’s meal.
Using his enhanced sight, Mike easily captured many grouse.
Mike then walked back towards the cave with a basket full of grouse carcasses.
When Nock saw the grouse in Mike’s hand, he became even more excited.
“What? Are you hungry, too?” Mike asked.
With another neigh from the horse, Mike continued to speak.
“Hahaha! Good! I’ll prepare the food for you! Wait for me!”
Mike quickly plucked the feathers off the grouse, and after bleeding it out, he raised his hand to produce some flames.
The flames were used to continuously roast the grouse.
The grouse’s skin contained a lot of grease, and soon drops of the grouse’s oil dripped down with the fire.
“Do you smell the fragrance?”
Mike said to Nock.
When Mike asked this question, Nock neighed again.
Soon, Mike’s roast grouse was finally ready.
Both Mike and Nock had a satisfying meal.
The next morning, Mike immediately opened his sleeping eyes after he felt the temperature rise,
Currently, the sky was bright, but through the faint light, he could still see the world clearly.
Mike tapped on the still sleeping Nock to wake him up.
Nock woke up without much resistance.
In fact, his spirit from yesterday seemed to have recovered.
“It’s already morning! Let’s continue on our way!”
Mike said to Nock.
Then, Mike leaned on Nock’s back and they rode towards the distant Ancient Law Town.
After a whole week of traveling, Mike finally caught a glimpse of Ancient Law Town.
Mike and Nock were standing on a mountain in the distance.
The sky above Ancient Law Town was filled with smoke.
From a distance, it looked as if it had suffered some kind of disaster.
However, what puzzled Mike was that there was no advanced technology in this era.
At least none that was enough to cause such a disaster.
Mike was filled with doubt.
So, he quickened his pace again.
“Nock! Let’s go!”
Then, Mike quickly rode to the location of Ancient Law Town.
After traveling a short while, Mike finally arrived at the outskirts of Ancient Law Town.
A high outer wall had been built around Ancient Law Town.
Looking at the wall, he could see that gunpowder smoke filled the air.
Mike was puzzled and continued walking towards the main gate of Ancient Law Town.
Then, just as he was looking around, Mike suddenly sensed a killing intent.
Very quickly, Mike looked towards the north.
Countless arrows were flying towards him.
“This is not good!
“Nock! Let’s go!”
As Mike said that, he raised his hand and released a large amount of flames.
The flames quickly ignited the rain of arrows in the sky, and the arrows quickly turned to ashes.
Mike rode Nock to the front of the newly-built city gate of Ancient Law Town.
At the moment, the city gate was closed.
Mike rode Nock alone and hovered at the bottom of the city gate.
He shouted towards the city wall.
“Open the gate! I’m here to help you!”
A few figures appeared on top of the city gate and asked, “Who are you? Why did you say that you’re here to help us?”
Seeing that someone had responded to him, Mike said, “I’m from the Lieluo Army. I’m here to help you eliminate this crisis!”
“What proof do you have?”
The man on the city gate continued to ask.
After Mike heard the man’s question, he quickly said, “Your hero, Tyrone, knows me! Please ask him to come and see me. When the time comes, he will vouch for me!”
There was no sound on the city wall.
Then, a thin figure appeared in front of Mike.
That person was Tyrone.
However, Tyrone looked very haggard.
Upon seeing Mike, Tyrone asked, “Do you have a token as proof?”
Hearing Tyrone’s words, Mike casually took out a token that had been given by Rowe.
Tyrone shouted, “Open the gate!”
The heavy gate was then opened.
Mike rode Nock into the inner part of Ancient Law Town.
Tyrone was the one who welcomed Mike as he entered the gate.
The soldiers behind the gate quickly closed the gate when they saw Mike entering the gate.
“Tyrone, you have worked so hard! My name is Mike! I’ve been sent by the Lieluo Army to save you!”
Mike did not exchange pleasantries with Tyrone, but went straight to the point instead.
“Please tell me, what is the situation now?”
When Tyrone heard that, his expression became serious.
“The Empire has sent a general named Lecter to lead the strongest army of the Empire to attack Ancient Law Town.
“Although we have been resisting for several months, the outer borders of Ancient Law Town have been completely sealed off. At this time, the resources in the city are gradually getting less and less.”
“I’m afraid that…”
Mike saw that Tyrone was worried, so he said, “It doesn’t matter. Just tell me the current situation. As for the Empire, I will think of a way!”
Hearing Mike’s words, Tyrone continued to speak.
“Right now, the military strength and food in Ancient Law Town are completely insufficient to continue resisting the attack of the Empire’s army.
“I’m afraid we can only last for three days at most.”
Hearing this, Mike started to become even more worried.
“Mike, you’d better leave quickly. Even if the reinforcements from the Lieluo Army are already on their way, I’m afraid that our place will be completely occupied before they arrive!”
Mike saw that Tyrone had become very anxious, so he comforted him.
“Don’t worry, I won’t leave, and Ancient Law Town will not fall!
“I came here to save you and Ancient Law Town!”
Tyron asked, “Then, do you have any good ideas now?”
Mike nodded and said, “Of course I have ideas, but I also need your help!”
