Philip frowned and said coldly, “She promised me that she’d show me around this place.”
The man pushed his glasses, and rays of light exploded from his body. His strength was the middle stage of eight stars, and that aura made Roscoe breathless.
“She doesn’t have that authority here.”
After saying that, the man pulled Brianna, who kept her head lowered, and was about to enter the elevator.
Roscoe barely recovered and shouted at the girl, “Brianna, come back if you don‘t like this place!”
The girl turned her head and smiled at Roscoe. The elevator doors closed quickly, but the two saw the tears in Brianna’s eyes.
The guards stepped forward and said to the two sternly, “You can leave now!”
Roscoe lowered his head without a word, but he did not want to leave.
Philip took Roscoe out without saying a word.
After getting into the car, Philip said to the sluggish Roscoe, “Kid, do you drink?”
Before Roscoe could answer, Philip parked the car in front of a bar on a commercial street.
The silver super sports car immediately attracted everyone’s attention.
“Don’t embarrass me…” Philip got off the car and said to Roscoe.
Roscoe slowly got out of the car and walked in with Philip.
Philip did not know the variety of liquor here, so he said to the bartender, “A bottle of the best liquor you have here, and something for this kiddo here.”
After a while, the bartender came over with a slender black bottle of wine and said to Philip, “Sir, this is our store’s specialty. May I serve you this bottle?”
Philip nodded without paying attention. He was more focused on the Moon Worship Creed now.
Roscoe’s drink was also served. It was a glass of eggnog with a hint of milk.
Philip picked up a glass of wine and said, “You got her here safely, didn’t you?”
Roscoe picked up the glass and downed all the contents.
“I don’t know if Briana will suffer here. During their group training before, I once sneaked into the place they were staying.”
Roscoe poured himself a glass of wine that Philip ordered and continued, “That place isn’t for humans. It’s more like a concentration camp.”
Philip took a sip of the wine, which had a faint fruity sweetness. It was not very strong, so he did not stop the boy.
“They even have to fight over food and kill demon beasts. The kids who die will be thrown into the incinerator like garbage…” Roscoe started sobbing.
“At least Brianna became a holy maiden, didn’t she?” Philip said a little emotionally.
“But I’ve heard people saying that all the holy sons and holy maidens will undergo a drastic change after entering that place, and even their biological parents will refuse to admit that they’re their children.”
Roscoe cried as he spoke and looked up at Philip. “I‘m afraid Brianna will end up like that too!”
Philip patted the boy on the shoulder and said, “If a man wants to protect his woman, he has to keep getting stronger. He has to become more powerful than the enemy.”
Although Roscoe was playful, he had a good nature, and he grew up in a good family, so Philip took out the Nine Lunar Technique he had gotten earlier to give to Roscoe.
“Don’t let anyone find out about this book, not even your parents. This road is full of perils. If you promise to persevere, you can take it…”
Roscoe wiped away his tears, took the book, nodded heavily, and said, “I will! Thank you, Philip!”
With that said, he toasted Philip with a glass of wine.
Roscoe could imagine the value of this book. No amount of words would be better than his actions in proving to Philip that he would live up to expectations.
