174 Chapter 174: A Kiss

    "We are done here. It was nice meeting you but we must leave now. I'll tell you if I find out about any adventure." Meng smiled though inside she was slightly worried as she stood up. She looked towards Ruan as she secretly gestured to him. Ruan and Ling stood up as well. They followed her and left.

    "Why are you all looking so stunned?" Long Chen turned back to look at Maia and Zhiqing and asked as he saw their stunned looks.

    "Although I guessed that you must be from an empire, it's still shocking as I hear it. You must not be from a weak empire either as you were able to face them without any concern. In Fact, they were the ones who looked more cautious as they talked to you. " Zhiqing said after some time with a serious look on her face.

    "Maybe... " Long Chen muttered.

    "Anyways, We should be going now as well. Thanks for allowing us to sit with you guys." Long Chen let out with a smile as he stood up. Mingyu also got up as they left.

    "There are so many important guests in our empire right now. My brother must know about all this. People from Thunder Giant Sect of North Moon Empire and two from a mysterious empire who are even more shocking. They are present in this kingdom at the same time... Something big is going on... We need to be prepared for the unexpected. Uncle Yao, send a team of our shadow guards to trail after the group from North Moon Empire and another team to keep an eye on Long Chen. They must not be found" Zhiqing muttered with a thoughtful look on her face.


    Long Chen and Princess Mingyu were walking in the streets. Princess Mingyu kept looking at Long Chen with a thoughtful look on her face.

    "Do you want to say something?" Long Chen asked as he noticed Mingyu gazing at him.

    "How were you able to hear their conversation? I have a stronger cultivation base than you, yet I wasn't able to hear a single word. " Mingyu asked as she looked at Long Chen.

    "I never said I heard their conversation. What makes you think that I did?" Long Chen let out as he looked at Mingyu with curiosity on his face.

    "It was quite clear from your looks that you could hear what they were talking about. So tell me, What did you find out? " Mingyu asked with a clever smile on her face.

    "Nothing much. All I found out was that they are here to look for something. Something important to them. It must be quite a treasure to make them come here" Long Chen chuckled as he continued walking ahead.

    " Looks like that girl put people on our trail. A smart decision but a bad one... " A demonic smile appeared on Long Chen's face as he sensed something. He slowed down his steps and allowed Mingyu to take the lead. He entered an empty street as he separated from Mingyu.

    Finding something strange, Mingyu turned back but there was no sign of Long Chen.


    Zhiqing and Maia were still having their dinner when the door of the hotel opened and as a hooded man was thrown inside. Zhiqing's expression turned serious as she recognized the dress of that person. It was one of her shadow guards. The hotel was mostly empty by now as the guests had left and only Maia and Zhiqing were inside. Even general Yao had left to inform the King.

    "I would have appreciated it much if you were the one trailing me. I might even like that instead, but you sent a guy" Long Chen chuckled as he entered the place.

    "Don't worry, I'm not here to hurt you..." Long Chen smiled as he walked towards Zhiqing who had a frown on her face.

    Long Chen brought his face closer to hers such that his lips were only an inch apart from hers. Zhiqing didn't move even slightly as she looked straight in Long Chen's eyes.

    "Although it's your first mistake, I can't forgive you so that you don't make it a habit." Long Chen muttered as he gazed in her deep eyes.

    "Who do you think you are! Even if you are from an Empire, you can't disrespect my aunt like that!" Maia said loudly as she stood up.

    "It's not me being disrespectful, little girl. As I said before, you haven't even seen my disrespect yet" Long Chen let out without turning back. He maintained his close distance to Zhiqing.

    Much to Long Chen's shock, something shocking happened.

    Zhiqing suddenly moved forward as she closed the distance between her and Long Chen. Her lips found their way to his lips as they touched. Long Chen could feel the sensation of her side lips and her sweet smell as he enjoyed his kiss.

    After a short three-second kiss, Zhiqing separated her lips from his lips.

    "Treat that as my apology. We are clear now." She muttered as she looked in Long Chen's eyes.

    "Not yet, " Long Chen muttered as he kissed her back. Zhiqing slightly opened her mouth in shock but Long Chen utilized this opportunity as he slid his tongue in her mouth and started playing with her tongue. He put one of his hands on the back of her head as he kissed her passionately.

    Maia had her eyes opened wide as she struggled to believe that the things happening in front of her were real and not a dream. Although she was stunned at first, after watching them kiss passionately, she started feeling something as her heart became uncomfortable. She felt like she desired what her Aunt was experiencing.

    After Long Chen kissed her for five minutes straight, he separated his lips from hers. Zhiqing was breathing heavily as she gazed at Long Chen.

    "There's another one of those guys lying unconscious outside the doors. Now we're even...  but I'm sure not for long." Long Chen smiled as he turned back and walked towards the exit.

    "Oh, by the way, you didn't need to send them. You could've just asked me straight, I live in Duke Granelli's old mansion" Long Chen turned back and said before he left.

    "We're definitely not even..." Zhiqing muttered softly.


    Half an hour passed as Long Chen walked back to his mansion. He entered the place and found Mingyu sitting in the main hall.

    "Where did you disappear to?" She asked as she saw Long Chen.

    "I went to take care of some things. Were you worried about my safety?" Long Chen smiled as he asked.

    " Why would I be worried about your safety? You're my destiny, you can't die... " Mingyu said as she smiled.

    "Even though I know what you mean, I find your words somewhat misleading" Long Chen let out with a wry smile on his face.

    Long Chen walked forward and sat right beside Mingyu.

    "Were you following those three? The thing they're looking for must be pretty good " Mingyu inquired with a curious look on her face.

    "I'm not following them, but I do believe that they will come following me" Long Chen smiled as he let out.

    " Why are you so sure? " Mingyu asked with an interesting look on her face.

    "Just a hunch" Long Chen let out with an amused smile on his face.

    After having a casual talk with Mingyu, Long Chen left as he entered his bedroom.

    "What a day" Long Chen lay down on his bed as he relaxed. He rested for an hour before he sat up and began cultivation. After his Qi cultivation, he cultivated his Demon Monarch Physique.

    As his Heart Demon was still under process, Long Chen was still having low cultivation speed of Demon Monarch physique.

    After finishing his Cultivation Long Chen brought out his egg as he began feeding it his Qi. After he finished with his daily schedule, Long Chen lay down on his bed as he held the egg on his hand.

    "In a few days, it will be my birthday. Why don't you come out then? We will have the same birthday little guy" Long Chen muttered as he gazed at the egg with a smile. He kept the egg back as he soon fell asleep.


    Morning arrived as Long Chen woke up. After getting ready, Long Chen left his bedroom.

    "I'll be going to the nearby mountain range for some training. It's finally time that I get done with the things I'm here for.I'll be back in less than a week." Long Chen informed Mingyu as he stood in front of her room and faced her.

    "Alright, I'll wait for you" Mingyu let out with a serious look as she gazed at Long Chen.

    Long Chen left the mansion on foot he traveled through the streets of the city. By now, many people had known about Long Chen and that he was not someone that should be annoyed. There was even a rumor that he was from an Empire.

    Long Chen passed through the entrance of the city of thunder as he left.

    After traveling for a brief period, Long Chen finally entered the mountain range outside the City of Thunder. The mountain range was over 15000 feet tall which would be quite tall for normal people to climb, but for Long Chen, it was barely an inconvenience.

    Long Chen used his Heavenly Demon Wings to fly upwards.
