The martial arts world was a violent circle! It was considered the cruelest circle there was! Ethan knew that even though the martial arts circle had declined, no one dared to underestimate it.
Anyone from this circle was capable of swaying the situation even if they were only grandmaster level fighters.
In the past, Broken Sword had been able to suppress those people in Riverport and embarrass them when he was just a grandmaster level expert!
In his twilight years, Broken Sword remained insane enough to cause a commotion in the north.
This was what a true expert was like!
It was the reason why experts from the martial arts circle were frightening.
Experts from Hidden Sect were outstanding because almost everyone came from the best of the martial arts circle.
In particular, the leader of Hidden Sect, His Lordship.
“Do we know anything about who left the Extreme Fist Technique Manual behind?”
Thomas shook his head and said, “We will probably only know after obtaining all the pages of the technique manual. Back then, the Hunt ancestors only found it by accident and didn’t know anything about its background.”
He looked at Ethan and said, “If anyone might know, it’s probably His Lordship.”
But they didn’t even know the true identity of His Lordship. So there was no way His Lordship would share any information about the technique manual.
Now His Lordship clearly wanted to use Ethan to kill more people.
Even if Ethan was aware of this trap, he had to keep going.
It was like a game. Once you joined it, you had to play it to the end. He could only see the final result after joining in the game.
Since Ethan wanted to know, he had to participate.
“Okay,” said Ethan as he nodded. “Since the game has begun, I will keep going.”
He turned to glance at Thomas and said, “I know what you are trying to tell me. Don’t worry. No one can harm Diane. No one at all!”
Ethan knew His Lordship was aware that if he touched Diane, he would never obtain the entire technique manual. And Ethan would hunt him down to the ends of the world!
If His Lordship wasn’t stupid, then he would know that he shouldn’t test Ethan’s boundaries.
But Ethan knew even more that he had to make plans.
After Ethan left Thomas’s study, he headed back to the room.
15 years had passed. It had been 15 years since he last slept in this house.
The bedroom still looked just like it did in the past. Nothing changed, not even the toys he had left lying around at the door. None of them were moved even an inch.
“I didn’t touch anything.”
Diane sat there and looked at the room, which was still clearly a child’s room. She couldn’t help but sigh, “If only you were still that kid, and nothing had changed.’
“Then I wouldn’t have met you.” Ethan didn’t think so much about these things.
What was over was over. He had to let it go and move on. The only thing that mattered now was to cherish what he had.
“Go to bed, it’s been a long day,” said Ethan. He wasn’t an emotional person to begin with.
After washing up, the two lay down in bed.
Diane slept soundly. Ethan closed his eyes but was unable to sleep at all.
Even the smell of this room…was just like it used to be.
He recalled the day he woke up and everything changed…
Images of him getting chased out of the Hunt family and drifting in the streets tragically with his mother kept flashing through his mind!
Ethan suddenly woke up in shock as he shivered nonstop.
A pair of arms embraced Ethan as though they were using all their might before he even realized he was having a nightmare.
“I’m here! I’m here!”
Diane’s warm and gentle voice reached Ethan’s ears.
