The two stood there in silence.
Only the faint noise of beasts reached his ears.
He was unable to fully understand what he had been told.
It was likely that Old wolf had not expected him to.
Old wolf shook his head.
“I have said enough…”
Li wondered why Old Wolf was so forthcoming with information.
“Now, the rest is really up to you…”
Li face paled drastically.
Old Wolf appeared amused at his reaction. He held a faint grin.
“…You seem to catch on quickly.”
“Yes, I was waiting until your condition worsened.”
Li fell on his knees.
He vomited. A sweet metallic taste lingered on his tongue as he took the smell of blood.
The taste of his bloody vomit had made his heart race.
His eyes happened to turn to the gentle glow on his finger.
The light, it was faint as if it would have gone out at any time.
His eyes lid were heavy, he was unable to hold them open for long.
Li’s body collapsed onto the cold earth.
All he could hear was his own panting.
Both pain and a coldness had began to spread from his abdomen to an area under his heart.
Was this related to what he spoke about?
He could feel the presence of something nearby.
He couldn’t feel anything, not even the chill.
If anyone was to touch Li’s skin now, they would notice that his skin was completely cold.
A will, Li’s will to live was the only thing that maintained his awareness.
However, all that was left was a wisp of consciousnesses.
He could see strange little light around him that were grim and dim.
Flow stood on next to an unconscious body. His face devoid of emotion as he stared down at the lifeless body.
“…Each one needs to find their own paths into the world…”
“He seemed promising. But to be…”
His face held a hint of regret that quickly subsided.
Even broken thing have their uses.
And in this case, he was just what Old wolf had wanted.
He was different than the others, so maybe the results would be different too is what he thought.
“Either way I hope he finds something to grasp before the residue impacts him too much…”
In this world, if you are weak you will be used only to be tossed away.
He pauses and takes off his hand.
He turned the body upward and placed his hands over the area where Li’s liver was located.
The faint light reflected of his white teeth as he grinned.
“Do not fail…”
