Telephassa was in tears. The beads of crystal like tears were dripping down on her half exposed white delicate breasts. With this type of reply, even they cannot be together, she was still satisfied. Even though there were tear stains on her face, she still left the window area with a smile.
“That’s right; this warring period has brought her majesty nothing but endless suffering. Being able to realize this and making the right choice, it’s proof that the Gods did not choose wrongly. Mr. Lei Yu, I hope you can fulfill your destiny. Only by completing it will you be able to leave ancient Greece and return to your time period.”
“Destiny? What sort of destiny do I have to fulfill?” Lei Yu asked while scratching his head.
“You should know about the Minotaur Linos right?”
“I do, it’s a…”
“A monster, right?” Said the prophet.
“I’m sorry, I’ve only seen a picture of it on the flag here so I didn’t know how to politely put it.”
“Don’t worry about it; he is in fact a monster because young virgin boys and girls are its food. But even after thousands of years, none of the populace has come to hate it because there’s a story behind all of this. Over a thousand years ago, Minotaur Linos wasn’t like how he is rumored now. Although his appearance looks fearsome, a bull’s head and a human’s body, he was in fact a brave warrior. If it weren’t for him, then this kingdom would have never existed to now. But due to our enemies sealing him into the Cretan Labyrinth, he had to consume the blood and flesh of young virgin boys and girls in order to withstand the labyrinth’s seal.
“Are you saying the rumor of annual tributes of a young virgin boy and girl is actually a true thing?” Lei Yu was shocked, he never thought the legendary myth was actually true.
“That’s right, and to this date the populace had no complaints or regrets. It weren’t for Minotaur Linos using his powers to protect this place; it wouldn’t have existed to now with many generations of offspring’s to show for. Therefore he… is guiltless.”
“Then what do you intend for me to do?” Lei Yu asked.
“Before Minotaur Linos was sealed, Silo was actually his messenger placed here. The purpose was to make Silo protect this country. During times of war, Silo had a powerful physique which caused our enemies to be in fear and dare not to fight with us. That’s how we’ve come to attain this level of prosperity. It was also due to all the killings that has caused Silo’s blood thirst to become stronger and stronger. But in recent years, there hasn’t been many wars so his blood thirst could not be satisfied and had worsened, requiring him to eat human flesh in order to suppress the blood thirst. And today, your arrival is perhaps a test by the Gods. Defeating Silo means you have the powers beyond a human, showing that only you are able to undo the seal; rescue Minotaur Linos; and then enlighten it.”
Lei Yu finally understood why when fighting Silo, Telephassa would speak out and stop him from killing him. It turns out Silo was similar to the country’s guardian.
“Then that Cretan Labyrinth you’ve been talking about wouldn’t be that…?!”
“That’s right, how you came to this time period would be the means of how you leave here as well – solve the labyrinth and find the Water of the Gods. Then you can use the golden bowl to break the seal and free Minotaur Linos.
Lei Yu’s heart was feeling like luck was on his side since he was fortunate enough to have the golden bowl already stored inside his storage ring, or else there would be no way for him to fulfill this so called destiny by Prophet Kalchas.
“So how long will this take? I really don’t want to make my family and friends in the modern times to worry about me.” Lei Yu said with concern.
“Please don’t worry about that. For you to arrive in this era, it’s actually not consistent with your own time period. Imagine by your own will, you can completely choose whatever arrival point in time you want.”
“That sounds great!” Lei Yu was extremely happy. “Doesn’t that mean I could choose to be sent back one minute after I was transported to this era?”
“Right, but undoing the seal is not a simple feat. You need to make adequate preparations for it.”
“That’s true.” Lei Yu nodded. “We were running around in circles inside the labyrinth for three days before we accidentally found the exit. Looks like this time I will have to be fully prepared, at least bring some bedding so that I could rest more comfortably when I’m tired.”
“No, that’s not what I meant!” Kalchas interrupted. “Inside the labyrinth are four fiendgod warriors that you have to defeat!”
“No way! How strong are they?” Lei Yu asked.
“They are very strong and not something humans can overcome. But you may be an exception; otherwise the Gods would not have chosen you to come here.”
Lei Yu gasped in a breath of air, originally thinking strolling around the labyrinth would suffice. He didn’t expect that he would have to defeat monsters to beat the level, this was getting troublesome!
“There’s also one other point you need to make note of.” Kalchas then said: “We originally had four sacred vessels in Athens; a golden crown; a golden axe, a golden armor and a pair of golden boots. The crown being the main piece as it contained the power of wisdom, owned by the ruler. It’s the crown you see her Majesty wear on top of her head. The other three pieces are worn by the guardian warriors of the ruler. The golden armor, golden boots, and the golden axe were all owned by Minotaur Linos. But prior to Minotaur Linos being sealed up, his three sacred vessels were taken by those four fiendgods. Three of them each possessed one piece while the last one, although did not have a sacred vessel, was actually the strongest one. It was that strongest fiendgod that managed to seal Minotaur Linos up, and his name was Crete.
Lei Yu nodded in a helpless fashion. Even though he knew this was dangerous beyond measure and there was no task as difficult as this, but was Lei Yu someone that would easily give up? Ai Er was probably still waiting outside the cave, and there’s no way Lei Yu would stay here to become some dog fart King. If he was really that cowardly, then we doubt Telephassa would fall in love with him in such a short timeframe.
After understand all the circumstances, Lei Yu had to carefully think and plan his next steps. And it was at this point that he understood why Telephassa came by with redness in her eyes; she had gotten the news that she couldn’t be married with Lei Yu. Even though Lei Yu felt a big weight was lifted off his shoulders, he more or less still felt a tiny bit depressed.
When he saw Queen Telephassa again, Lei Yu had a feeling that he didn’t know how to face her. She still gave off such a noble feeling that made it difficult for people to get close to.
“Your Majesty.” Lei Yu had actually come to say his farewell, but didn’t know how to say it.
“The Prophet Kalchas has told you everything?” Perhaps it was the place they were at, but the previous bashful young girl had resumed her icy demeanor.
“That’s correct. I’ve already prepared everything and will go complete… fulfill my destiny.” Lei Yu lightly said this followed by a sigh.
Telephassa’s beautiful eyes gently sparkled as she suppressed a tear that was about to drip down. “The great Gods will bless you and protect you so that you can fulfill your destiny.”
