They arrived in front of a huge castle heavily guarded. Warriors in armor were standing on both sides of the main entrance while the long spears in their hand reflected the sunlight shining on them. The three warriors dragging Lei Yu dismounted as they got to the front entrance. They then untied the rope from the horse and dragged him inside the castle.
They were walking down a long corridor and off to the right side at a distance was a large wall, and below that wall were iron cages at least four meters tall were seen. As for what it was for, Lei Yu had no idea.
Outside a majestic looking door, the three warriors pushed Lei Yu through it. The three stayed outside the door and did not dare enter as well. Lei Yu looked all around and saw six huge pillars in this room with a variety of monsters carved on them. Facing the door was a luxurious looking throne inlaid with many different precious stones. Atop of the throne hung a banner with the same picture he saw earlier on the flag; the same Minotaur with a cow’s head and a human’s body.
The large hall wasn’t particularly lit well, but you could still see everything clearly. At this time, “ding ding dong dong” sounds could be heard from the rear of the hall.
Gradually, the sounds got closer and Lei Yu couldn’t help but be amazed. “She’s too beautiful! Is this a face that humans are capable of having?”
Even Lei Yu, a man with a strong will could not help having his heart slightly moved with this woman appearing before him; she was just too beautiful.
A white veil with gold decorative accessories revealed a slender jade like neck; partially covered creamy white breasts; slender waists that you could easily wrap your arms around; and a pair of bare smooth and sleek legs that were barely covered that looked just as pretty as white jade. Her eyes contained the charm of a seductress, but brought a hint of noble charm in it – seductive yet not inappropriate. Her small mouth had a petite curve while slightly opened making Lei Yu have the impulse of wanting to rush forward to give them a kiss. This woman was a demonic seductress that exuded elegance and nobility deep within her bones. She looked like she was seducing men at all times; affecting their hearts and making them marvel at her aura.
The “ding ding dong dong” sounds were coming from some accessories she had worn on her head. On top of her black hair was a golden crown, which evidently took Lei Yu a lot of effort to tear his eyes away from her charming body. He was surprised to find that he has seen the golden crown somewhere before.
“It’s one of the four objects that appeared in my mind!” Lei Yu was shocked but did not say this out loud.
The beautiful goddess elegantly sat on top of the throne. Gently moving her beautiful long hair, she then clamped her bare and slightly exposed legs together to avoid any embarrassment.
“Are you the spy that my country’s warriors brought back?” Her sweet voice with a noble tone could make a person’s heart shatter.
Lei Yu shook his head, “Nope.”
“Then why have you come to my territory?” Her dignified manner along with her commanding inquiry made her even more noble and domineering. It feels like it shouldn’t be present in this frail looking goddess of beauty yet this queen had it.
“My revered Queen Telephassa, I’m really not some sort of spy from another country. I just don’t know how I have arrived here and I can honestly tell you I don’t want to be here. If you insist that I answer your question, then I can only keep saying I have no clue.” Lei Yu understood if he tried explaining things clearer, this beautiful queen would not understand a thing so it’s best to just not say anything.
“In times of war and countries fighting each other, since you can’t clearly identify yourself, then you can only blame this period of turmoil for your body’s harm. My warriors, send him to the mouth of Silo!”
As the Queen decreed this, the previous three warriors came into the hall but they didn’t dare raise their head to look at the queen’s beauty that was like a goddess. The pulled onto the rope that Lei Yu was still bound by, intending to pull him out of the palace. Lei Yu only used a bit of strength and these people couldn’t budge him. Lei Yu smiled; he smiled because it seems like he only lost his perception ability to probe the strength of others, and it wasn’t because the people here were so strong that it was beyond his imagination.
“Your honorable majesty Queen Telephassa, can you please tell me what is this Silo?”
Telephassa had no intention of answering Lei Yu as she lightly stood up ready to leave. The warrior guy with the mustache said: “Hurry and leave! Don’t bother her majesty the Queen! Won’t you know what Silo is once you get there?”
Lei Yu raised an eyebrow. He gave a few more glances at this intoxicating queen that could drive people obsessed before reluctantly leaving with the trio. Obviously, if Lei Yu insisted on not leaving, even if all three warriors combined their strength can only dream of moving Lei Yu half a step.
A series of neat steps all lead to a huge fighting arena. The center of the arena was currently void of anyone. Lei Yu went into the arena through an iron gate on the side. Watching intently, there were quite a lot of people spectating as all their eyes were focused on him from the benches.
“What the hell is up with this place?” Lei Yu looked all around, he could tell from the eyes of the spectators were filled with excitement. Perhaps it’s been too long that they haven’t seen a fight or something? But most of the spectators were warriors in light armor, and only some girls and women that looked like housewives.
A loud cry of resentment was heard and the entire audience began boiling in excitement. All their eyes were focused on an iron gate that Lei Yu was facing. The “bang bang” sounds of something smashing against the iron gate could be heard.
A “crack” sound could be heard as the iron gate was opened. Lei Yu instantly stared with big round eyes. “What is that thing? Is this the Silo the Queen was talking about?”
Some sort of monster was rapidly running towards Lei Yu. To accurately describe it, the monster had two heads that made it look humanoid; a pair of legs supporting it that was covered in thick muscles like the patterns on a slab of granite; two pairs of sharp claws were swinging around in front of its chest as if it wanted to shred Lei Yu to pieces; the two heads looked somewhat like a snake’s head but had ears and a horn; the fangs inside its mouth were dripping with some type of viscous liquid, and finally, the bald headed monster was covered in gray colored skin that made it look pretty fearsome.
Lei Yu instantly took a few steps back since he couldn’t feel what degree of strength this monster possessed. Looking at its ferocious attitude and its sharp fang-like teeth, Lei Yu was a bit worried whether he could handle this thing or not.
Although this giant three meter tall two-headed monster looked heavy and robust, its speed was not lacking at all. The monster had covered the hundred or so meters distance in less than ten seconds and had already arrived in front of Lei Yu.
Seeing the two-headed monster’s aggressiveness, the spectators surrounding the arena were immediately excited and started screaming:
“Rip him to pieces!”
“Silo, Silo, Silo!”
Lei Yu narrowed his eyes and rapidly condensed his internal energy, getting ready to fight with this unknown named two-headed monster. Was he going to become food for this thing?
In reality, whether it was in ancient Rome, ancient Egypt, or ancient Greece where we are in right now; the same thing will always happen. The goal was to allow their citizens or their warriors know that their country possesses a fierce and bloodthirsty beast so there’s no need to fear the other countries.
