Chapter 112

The three girls noticed that Rhode was walking towards them and lifted their heads in response .

In all honesty, they were Starlight's trump cards because Starlight lacked experienced mercenaries and they were all beautiful females nonetheless .

Some mercenary groups got jealous when they saw the three capable yet beautiful women . They even secretly called them prostitutes when the three were together .

Of course, these things could only be spoken secretly; no one would dare to publically denounce Starlight when they heard news of Rhode beating up Jade Tears into such a miserable state .

Still, it didn't prevent them from being jealous of Starlight .

Among the three women, Lize was the adorable type . Her white Cleric robes matched with her luscious golden hair made her look like a delicate lily . Although she was smiling right now, a trace of gloominess still hid deep within .

Marlene was as prideful as always . She placed her hand on her knee while her white, long hair waved around as she moved . Her crimson red eyes emitted a beautiful gleam, just like a flower that grew on a mountain; hard to reach, but incredibly beautiful .

Anne was much bolder than the lot of them . Even if someone were to scribble the word 'bold' on their head, they still can't possibly rival Anne in revealing her innocence to the world .

Anne yawned as she lay flat on the grass and enjoyed the warm sunshine . Her golden hair was tied up in a ponytail, emitting a youthful and wild charm . Contrasting against Lize's and Marlene's conservativeness, Anne seemed to prefer to show off her figure . The armor she wore right now was tight-fitting and emphasized her slim waist . With her vivacious personality, who knew if she intentionally picked this set of revealing attire .

Randolf and the rest were almost immune to Anne's outfit as they were already used to it . On the other hand, Shauna's subordinates eyes glued onto Anne . This made Shauna angry, and she scolded them for being a group of good-for-nothings that couldn't control their inner desires .

Honestly speaking, Shauna can be considered to be a beauty herself . While she wasn't as striking when compared with the other three, a strong and mature woman like her did attract plenty of men .

If Rhode were an ugly, lecherous fatty, perhaps everyone would've called him a lewd b*stard . But even though they knew that he recruited many beautiful women into Starlight, no one called Rhode lewd . So why was that?

The reason was simple . It was because of his appearance! His looks weren't far off from the rest of them . Saying that he was lewd? Wasn't it better for him to buy a mirror to look at himself if he'd ever felt lustful?

While many were busy with training, the three women chatted about a variety of topics… well, actually it was only Marlene and Lize who was having a chat . At the side, Anne's blissful facial expression revealed that she was having a pleasant dream .

"Ah, Mr . Rhode . "

Lize quickly stood up . Marlene also smiled and nodded .

"How do you feel?"

Rhode asked Lize .

"It's slightly weird… the last time we came to Twilight Forest was for a mission and didn't have time to take in the scenery . This is my first time coming here without taking on any mission . "

Lize said with a smile as her gaze fell upon the sea of trees not far from her .

"It's really beautiful . I recall that I was so nervous that my head started to spin when I first took on a mission here . At that time, leader and the others would laugh at me…"

Lize stopped speaking and gazed at the forest silently . She knew she shouldn't say these things, but she couldn't help but think of it .

Looking at her gloomy expression, Rhode frowned . It's not like he didn't notice her mood, but her painful memories weren't something that could be erased easily .

If it was a problem in battle, Rhode might be able to think of a solution, but this was a psychological problem, and Rhode's ability to guess what people were thinking was as good as the average person next to him .

Lize looked fine on the outside, but deep inside there was a scar that no Cleric could heal . If a similar accident were to occur, perhaps this scar might once again open up and bring a greater injury to her mental state .

"I will go and check on everyone . "

Lize seemed to have noticed something, so she made a faint smile and made her way to the others . Rhode stared at her leaving figure and was lost in thought .

"Seems like that accident left a deep scar . "

Marlene, who had been quiet for a while, finally opened her mouth .


Rhode nodded .

"Do you have a plan, Mr . Rhode?"

"For now? No . "

"Since its something hard to bring up, we can only act according to circumstances . Marlene, can you inform me if anything happens to her?"

"No problem, leave it to me, Mr . Rhode . "

Marlene had no reason to reject as Lize was her best friend . Even if she was a genius Mage, she was no psychiatrist either . Other than staying beside her, there was nothing she could do .

Rhode nodded . Then he walked towards a stream by the hillside .

Marlene frowned when she saw Rhode's figure . She felt that it was familiar .

Ah, yes… it was just like in Silent Plateau . He went into the forest and summoned an angel, right?

But what was he doing now? Was he going to summon someone again?

Marlene fell deep into thought for a while before shaking her head . Rhode had too many secrets . It was no point for her to pry his secrets . She believed that he would tell them the truth when the time came .

But when she looked at where Rhode was heading to, she couldn't help but think about the underground palace . The Fascarl era buildings… the strange statues and the trial…

Is he really…?

Suddenly, her eyes flashed a trace of shock . She didn't realize that her heart was beating really fast . An unbelievable thought just hit her . If it's just like she thought, then Rhode is…

She shook her head and threw away the frightening idea .

At that moment, Anne, who was supposed to be sleeping, quietly opened her eyes and peeked at Marlene . Her beautiful and refined face was currently flushed red .

Rhode felt that this forest was somewhat fated with him .

He walked towards a dense thicket, and after making sure that there was no one around, he took out a small Soul Core . It was the second Soul Binding Stone . Inside the stone was the soul of the Death Knight that he previously defeated . Frankly, Rhode didn't expect to bind its soul since he was actually trying to avoid the fight . However, Anne's stubbornness altered the plan . So, Rhode changed his mind and took out the Soul Binding Stone to seal the Death Knight's soul .

Unlike the Necromancer, the Death Knight's soul wasn't pure black; it was grey . Rhode couldn't help but feel nervous when he saw the swirling fog .

The Death Knight was a monster above level 30 and he was currently only level 15 . He wasn't even half of its level . A Soul Core from a higher level monster would enable him to summon a high-level spirit . All he had to do now was to suppress its instability to the lowest .

High-level cards were very rare . In the game, the majority of the Summoning Swordsmen players had to fuse three high-level cards to get it . Of course, if one obtained a high-level Soul Core, he or she might acquire a high-level card as well though the success rate of obtaining one was much lower than fusing three cards .

Rhode hoped that the level 30 Soul Core wouldn't turn out to be trash . After thinking for a while, Rhode finally made the decision to go for it .

"… Sigh . "

Rhode took a deep breath as he stared at the foggy Soul Core in his hand . Once again, he scanned his surroundings to make sure that no one would disturb him . Then, he closed his eyes and began .

Soon, a stream of mysterious lights appeared from his hand . Like a river of water, it flowed from his body to the ground . After that, with Rhode as the center, it formed into a huge and majestic magic circle!

Then, a deck of cards floated in the air; they were hovering inside the circle, all of them shining with a different kind of light .

At that moment, Rhode lifted his right hand to present the Soul Core to the deck .

This was a method he thought of . Rather than letting the Soul Core form itself, it was better to place it into a card he had . By doing so, he can obtain a higher success rate of getting high-level spirits . That was his conclusion after countless trials and error and research from the forums .

And now, he finally got the opportunity to experience it .

As if aware of the Soul Core, the deck began shining with a mysterious light . The Soul Core began to change color as though it was communicating with the deck . The Soul Core flickered and changed colors rapidly from white to black, to red, and to green . The colors started to change faster until Rhode's eyes couldn't keep up with it .

But suddenly, Rhode's expression changed .

He found out that something wasn't right .

The Soul Core on his palm began to tremble, and the magic circle also began to distort .

What happened? He had never encountered this kind of situation before .

Rhode calmed down and kept his doubts in his heart . He tried to suppress the magic circle, but he didn't expect the feedback was getting even more violent and the formerly stable magic circle exploded with a powerful force .

Crack .

When the Soul Core on his palm broke, his body suddenly felt extremely painful .

There was only darkness before him; he lost consciousness .
