753 Chapter 753: The Dragon Appears

    "What curse are you talking about?" the middle-aged man asked Long Chen as he frowned.

    "Oh? You didn't get the information about the curse when you became the new owner?" Long Chen asked with a shocked look on his face.

    " What information? What are you talking about?" The man asked as he smashed his hand on the throne in frustration.

    "You took that sword from my grandfather, didn't you?" Long Chen inquired from the man.

    "I did," the middle-aged man replied with a concerned look on his face.

    " You still have that sword, right?" Long Chen continued his questioning.

    "Yeah, I do," the man replied.

    "Then, I was right. You're the new owner of the sword. It's been attached to you, and I'm released from this curse," Long Chen let out happily.

    "If you don't tell me more about this curse, I will kill you right here! Tell me!" the middle-aged man thundered.

    "Oh, It looks like you really don't know. When the Sword got attached to me, I got this information. Anyway, since you didn't get it, I'll tell you," Long Chen said as he nodded his head.

    "The Sword is called the Cursed Sword of Strength. It's a strong sword, but it comes with a curse. The other starts seeing hallucinations after getting cursed, and then his existence is wiped from this world. No one remembers that person. In some rare cases, a close relative might remember, but more often than not, no one remembers. The curse also makes your body start heating up, and if you don't live in a freezing place, you die," Long Chen exclaimed.

    "I was freed from the curse three months ago, so the sword sirened itself to you at that time. If my assumption is correct, you can start seeing that hallucination at any time. I started seeing that there months after the sword sirened itself to me. It should be the same for you," Long Chen said as he sighed.

    "This was why I was seeing the hallucination of my parent's death, and I thought I traveled back in time," Long Chen replied.

    "But didn't your parents die like how you claimed they would?" Li Yi Hei inquired.

    "They did, but I believe it was a coincidence. Anyway, I saw many more hallucinations. I saw ghosts, dragons, Phoenixes, and many more. I was going crazy, and my body was heating up, so I ran away to find a cold place. That's where I was living until the sword became yours entirely, and the curse was removed from me," Long Chen said as he sighed.

    The more he spoke, the more worried Li Yi Wei became.

    "Anyway, if my previous experience is of any worth, then your body will start heating up in a day to a week after the hallucination appears, and you might die if you don't go to a freezing place. As for your existence, it was wiped one day after I saw my first hallucination about my parents so that everyone will forget you as well," Long Chen said as he sighed.

    "Since I told you everything I know, I'll take my leave now," Long Chen said as he bowed his head gently again.

    His eyes changed into a misty white color, which wasn't visible to anyone else in the room.

    The Middle-aged man was looking at Long Chen, still wondering if he was telling the truth or not. He didn't want to let him leave, and he was about to say something when he saw the roof of the hall splitting apart. He saw a terrifying dragon enter the room from that opening.

    "Waaa- There's a dragon! Kill it! Kill it right not!" The middle-aged man screamed like a kid as he stepped back, falling down to his throne.

    The Dragon flew towards the middle-aged man but disappeared just before he was about to touch the middle-aged man.

    Li Yi Hui saw the dragon disappeared. His face was covered in sweat.

    "Where did the dragon go? Why did you bastards not move to protect me! Were you Frozen in fear? How can my guards be so useless! I'll go tell my brother about the appearance of a dragon," he said as he wiped the sweat off his face.

    "B-but Your Highness, there was nothing there," the guards replied in confusion.

    "What do you mean there was nothing? Do you mean to say it was my hallucination? You think I'm going crazy just because this kid talked about some stupid things? Can't you idiots see that the roof is split in hal-"

    Li Yi Hui looked towards the roof to prove his point but only to be stunned as the top looked completely normal. There is nothing strange that could be seen on the roof.

    "H-how could it be?" he muttered with a blank look on his face.

    "Hmm? Looks like it has already begun. You're starting to see hallucinations. I was right about the timeline. By tomorrow, everyone will forget about me," Long Chen said as he sighed. He intentionally spoke in a tone loud enough that the man managed to hear him.

    Li Yi Hui was finally starting to believe Long Chen. He didn't know why, but he was feeling only Long Chen could save him from this problem. He didn't want to lose his mind, and he didn't want to have to live in an ice-cold place to survive. More importantly, he didn't want people to forget about him.

    Li Yi Hui was a guy who was very self-obsessed. He wanted people to remember him. He didn't want to be known in his kingdom only but in all kingdoms, but he knew that he couldn't conquer other Kingdoms. To bring his hand far and wide, he became a writer in his young days. He even became a painter later in and many more.

    The thought of being forgotten by the others was the scariest for him. He didn't wish to be forgotten at any cost.

    "You! Tell me a way to break this curse if you want to leave here alive! If I can't stay in peace, then I won't let you live either!" He thundered as he glared at Long Chen.

    "No, I can't! If I tell you, I'll be in trouble!" Long Chen replied as he took a step back in hesitation.

    "And if you don't reply, then you'll be dead! Think carefully, little boy! You want your life or not?" Li Yi Hui inquired as he glared at Long Chen.

    "Oh god, why did I even come here? Fine, I'll tell you. Just don't kill me!" Long Chen muttered as he sighed. Regret was clear on his face.

    "Give this sword to someone else and wait. If this sword selects that person to be the new owner, you'll be free of the curse. Until then, you'll have to face the curse," Long Chen explained.

    "Oh? How long will it take before the sword selects the new person as an owner, and I'm free?" Li Yi Hui asked with a hopeful gaze.

    "I don't know. It took close to twenty years before it selected you, and I was freed. It can take that much or even longer," Long Chen answered.

    "What the heck? That's no better than facing this curse for the rest of my life! Tell me another way and something that will definitely work, or I'll kill you right now!" Li Yi Hui thundered again as he pointed his finger at Long Chen.

    The guards also pulled their weapons out and aimed them at Long Chen as if telling him to cooperate or he was going to be killed.

    "I give you five minutes! If you don't tell me a solution, I'll kill you!" Li Yi Hui told Long Chen before he sat down on the throne again.
