In Hangzhou in July, the sun is scorching like fire.
Facing the roiling heat wave, Zhang Hong strode forward with heavy steps, rushing into the gate of the International Exhibition Centre with lightning speed and jingle bells.
The cold air from the air conditioner made him tremble all over, and he couldn’t help showing a comfortable smile.
With a height of 1.8 metres and a heavyweight body of more than 200 kilogrammes, the sudden intrusion of Zhang Hong, who is known as the “big meat king” by people in the world, startled the security personnel in front of the security inspection channel, and their expressions became vigilant.
But without waiting for the other party to make a move, Zhang Hong immediately handed over his identity card with a flattering smile.
Uncle Security checked the card carefully, and after confirming that it was not a counterfeit, he waved his hand to let it go resentfully.
In the past few days, the 17th Daxia Animation Expo has been held at the International Exhibition Centre. Because the organiser intends to control the number of people entering the exhibition hall, the tickets are extremely tight. Therefore, some nerds who failed to grab the tickets frantically forged their IDs to try to muddle through.
Uncle Security personally caught several of them, all of whom were war scum who claimed to be Acer.
Zhang Hong, who looks a lot like Acer but is actually a member of the Acer team, passed through the security check channel smoothly. The wide main hall is in front of him. He grabbed the SLR camera hanging on his chest and wanted to roar loudly with excitement.
Ladies and gentlemen, the demon king is coming!
Zhang Hong, who had just rushed forward a few steps, suddenly went dark in front of his eyes, feeling as if he had hit a solid wall, and his whole body was not well!
Under the reaction force generated by the impact, he staggered back a few steps so as not to fall to the ground.
The next moment, Zhang Hong saw clearly the culprit that caused him to run into a wall.
It was a tall man, taller than Zhang Hong, who was 1.8 metres tall.
He was wearing a set of dark brown leather armour. The surface of the leather armour was densely covered with deep or shallow scars and dark red spots that looked like blood, as if he had just experienced a fierce battle.
The leather armour was bounded by a belt of the same texture; a dagger with a sheath and a silver wine jug were tied on the left and right waists; and trousers and leather boots covered with mud were worn underneath.
Zhang Hong, who was extremely happy and sad, was very annoyed, but he was surprised to see the other party’s attire.
He has seen too many in China, but he has never seen such a special mercenary adventurer as COS. Although the equipment is very simple and not dazzling at all, it gives people an extremely strong sense of reality.
The question is, “How did this one suddenly appear? Just now, there was no one in front of me!
While Zhang Hong was looking at the other party, the other party seemed to be aware of it and turned around to meet his gaze.
The fat all over Zhang Hong’s body trembled involuntarily, and his anger disappeared instantly.
This tall man is about 30 years old. His hair is cut very short, and the steel needles are very dense. He has an open forehead, a high nose bridge, bright eyes, and a resolute face. Although not very handsome, he is very masculine.
Killing all sissy little fresh meat in seconds, such a man doesn’t need to spend money to pick up girls, right?
Zhang Hong, who was all fat, thought with low self-esteem.
Then he heard the man say, “You’re good.”
Zhang Hong was stunned.
The other party’s voice was quite deep, and the strange thing was that the two words were spoken very awkwardly, as if he hadn’t spoken for a long, long time.
He scratched his head and said, “Hi, I’m Xinman’s trainee reporter Zhang Hong, bow leader Zhang, Feihong’s Hong. I’m sorry to bump into you just now. Who is your cosplaying character?”
The corner of the man’s mouth twitched, as if mocking himself: “My name is Zuo Yi, the left and right, the perseverance.”
This time, he spoke much more fluently.
“Uh, Mr. Zuo, hello…”
Zhang Hong almost scratched his scalp, feeling that standing in front of the opponent, his body became very stiff.
Makes it look magical here.
His gaze finally fixed on a banner hanging from the dome of the exhibition hall: 2019 Great Summer International Comic Con!
2019, big summer!
A look of disbelief flashed in Zuo Yi’s eyes.
The memories of the past few days are still vivid in his mind, which also makes him doubt the reality of what he sees.
Three days ago, after wandering around the world of Sadya for many years, Zuo Yi returned to the starting point of crossing to Sadya—Thorn Town on the edge of the Montenegro forest—and just happened to bump into the abyssal demon army that invaded the ground.
In order to cover the retreat of the townspeople, he guarded the outpost fortress alone, fought fiercely with countless demons, broke through to advance to the holy rank, and finally fought a decisive battle with Sol, the lord of the ninth floor of the abyss and the commander of the demon army, outside Thorn Town.
Relying on the power of the sanctuary condensed by the eight virtues and beliefs, Zuo Yi severely injured Sol, who has the title of “Witch King”, but he was also hit by the “Great Exile” cast by Sol at the cost of burning his last life and then being forcibly pulled into the turbulent flow of space.
But now he is standing here!
Is it a hallucination?
Zuo Yi instantly rejected this idea.
Even in the high-dimensional Sadya world, when he was still a legend, Edith, known as the strongest spiritual wizard, could not break through his iron will.
What’s more, Zuo Yi has become a paladin now.
Since it is not an illusion, it means that he really came back, returned to his homeland after travelling to the world of Sadya for thirty years, and returned to the world where he was born and raised, which truly belonged to him!
At this moment, Zuo Yi wanted to laugh wildly.
For many years, he thought that he would never be able to return to this world that haunted him, but he never expected that he would be sent back by the strongest enemy at the cost of his life.
Sol, he is simply a Northeasterner in the abyss!
Zuo Yi felt a little unbelievable that it had only been three years since he left.
Although in the multiverse, the time of different plane worlds is different, the ten-fold difference between the high-dimensional Sadya and the low-dimensional Blue Star is unimaginable.
Zuo Yi didn’t bother with this problem. There are endless mysteries in the multiverse, with countless planes. The saints can’t understand one of the billions of them in their entire lives. Ordinary people think that thinking too much is completely self-abusive.
What he wants most now is to go home!
Zuo Yi withdrew his gaze, suppressed the excitement in his heart, and said to Zhang Hong, who was still standing in front of him, “Can I borrow your mobile phone to make a call?”
When he first travelled to the world of Sadya, Zuo Yi carried a lot of things with him, including backpacks, mobile phones, wallets, passports, ID cards, etc. These items belonging to the Blue Star World have long since disappeared.
But Zuo Yi still feels very lucky. In just three years, he will not have much estrangement from Blue Star World.
Zhang Hong came to his senses, hurriedly took out his mobile phone, unlocked it with his fingerprint, and handed it to Zuo Yi.
Zuo Yi said “thank you” and took it. UU Reading: www.uukanshu.com
This phone was not much different from the one he used back then, and Zuo Yi was also familiar with the system, so he entered a number to call it.
“The phone you dialled is off.”
Zuo Yi was a little disappointed by the voice coming from the phone. He originally wanted to contact a friend who lived in downtown Hangzhou to pick him up, but he didn’t expect the phone to be turned off.
Forget it, Zuo Yi returned the phone to Zhang Hong and said, “Thank you.”
After speaking, he strode towards the door and disappeared in the blink of an eye.
Zhang Hong, who stayed where he was, held the phone blankly, feeling like he was in a dream—very unreal.
Walking out of the International Exhibition Centre, the scorching sun shone on Zuo Yi’s face, making him narrow his eyes slightly.
Zuo Yi’s family is not in downtown Hangzhou. He has been living in Linjiang Town, on the other side of the Qianjiang River, which is more than ten kilometres away.
At his walking speed, walking home is very simple. If you are not afraid of being discovered and shocked, flying back directly is a matter of seconds.
But Zuo Yi didn’t use either, but found a jewellery store near the exhibition centre.
The International Exhibition Centre is located in the most extensive area of Hangzhou City, and the surrounding commercial facilities are very complete. The facade of this jewellery store is quite elegantly decorated. The two beautiful hostesses at the door saw Zuo Yi, who was dressed in a foreign world, but did not show it. What disgust and resentment! But Qiqi bowed and said, “Welcome to Jinyufu Jewellery!”
One of the hostesses asked politely, “Sir, what do you need?”
Zuo Yi asked, “Do you recycle gold here?”
