The Path Less Traveled (Chapter 3)
The Path Less Traveled
Devron heard a soft female voice that sounded extremely far
away, “Wake up…”
Devron tries to move his body but is only able to sense what
is going on around him. Who was he? He couldn’t remember. All he knew was that
his name was Devron.
“Devron wake up…”
‘If only I could move’ Devron thought to himself.
“If you die…” The female voice sounded slightly panicked,
but was getting closer.
Devron slowly regains control of his body. His eyes slowly
open. He was on his back, eyes looking into the sky. He tries to get up but an
immense pain runs through his entire body.
Sobbing could be heard on his left side. Devron slowly
turned his head to look at the noise. Kneeling on the ground was a woman whose
beauty could start wars. Her hair was a golden brown. Her figure, that was
quite thin, could be clearly seen on the blood soaked clothing that she was
wearing. She looked about average height, but it was hard to tell since she was
kneeling. Her hands were covering her face as tears were streaming down from
Taking a deep breath, everything started coming back to
Devron. He was in a fight with another member of the younger generation within
the Je clan. Devron had zero talent for cultivating martial arts within the Je
clan… but the person he somehow provoked was the top rated genius of the
younger generation, Kyle.
The reason this all started was because his childhood
friend, Jessica, spent almost all her free time with Devron. Kyle was a
womanizer. He was able to get women by using money from his father, and was
able to get away with it due to his incredible battle power. He was about as
attractive as a pig who had been recently rolling in mud. Kyle had seen
Jessica’s beauty and instantly wanted to know what she tasted like, but she
would never leave Devron’s side. After seeing this, Kyle decided to openly
declare war on Devron by confessing his love to Jessica in public.
Jessica turned him down the very moment he was finished
talking with the words, “I do not love you, nor will I ever love a man so
Kyle felt like this was a direct slap to his face and his
pride as a man. Kyle was above everyone within the younger generation and even
a few within the older generation. Kyle was furious at Devron for being able to
spend that much time with a beauty like Jessica but not do anything with her.
Kyle devised a plan to get rid of Devron. He would wait
until the rest day of the clan and attack him when he made a journey through
the forest to the nearby city.
Two days later, Kyle puts the plan into action.
Devron slowly opens to try and talk, but he only spits up a
mouthful of blood. If he doesn’t receive treatment soon, he will die for sure.
Devron suddenly receives a kick to his side. It sends him
into a nearby tree causing splinters of wood to go flying in every direction.
Kyle just laughs, “So weak! You think you can fight back
with your puny strength!”
Devron slowly stands ignoring the pain. He spits more blood
out of his mouth. He stretches out his joints and looks into Kyle’s eyes, “If I
don’t stop you, who will? You are just another spoiled brat!”
An evil smile creeps across Kyle’s face, “Then let’s see you
try!” Kyle crouches down and launches himself forwards using only raw power. He
arrives in front of Devron in a split second. His right hand balled into a fist
and behind him prepared to punch with all his weight, “This is the end!”
