“Um, thanks for just now.” Rowan broke the awkward silence and said to Laurie, who nodded upon hearing this.
“It’s nothing. What’s important is that you’re fine. We’re friends, after all,” Laurie replied and smiled.
The atmosphere became awkward again. Rowan was exasperated but did not know what to say. After all, things were quite embarrassing earlier.
Fortunately, Dion returned soon, and everyone ate before returning to their rooms.
Lying on the bed, Rowan looked at the ceiling and was lost in thought. After today’s incident, Rowan realized that he still had many shortcomings. An illusion almost killed him, which was not a good sign.
“If this happens again, what should I do? I don’t even know when I entered the illusion…” Rowan pondered.
After thinking about it, it should be the moment when he attacked the man.
However, he did not notice anything at all. Was it because the illusion was too special or that he was too careless?
Rowan had a long list of questions with no way of verifying them. Abraham could only wait for the female thief to wake up before asking her. Thus, Rowan sat on the bed and began to practice.
A night passed.
Early the next morning, Rowan exhaled and opened his eyes, which contained a sharp glint in them.
A night of practice allowed his body to fully recover.
“It’s time to eat!” At this time, Dion’s voice sounded outside the door.
Rowan responded and walked out.
After a simple meal, Laurie dragged him out of the hotel.
As such, Rowan did not even have time to talk to the female thief who had just woken up.
Rowan was dumbfounded, not knowing what Laurie was up to.
“I’m taking you to look at the venue of the Heroes Conference. It’s divided into several venues with different levels of difficulty,” Seeing Rowan’s puzzled expression, Laurie quickly explained.
“Different venues? Is there a purpose behind this?” Rowan could not help asking, and Laurie nodded.
”Of course there is. To put it plainly, if you have background and influence, you’ll be given a venue that’s neither difficult nor easy. If you’re extremely powerful, you’ll be given a venue so easy that you can pass without lifting a finger,” Laurie explained.
Rowan nodded. So many shady businesses were going on behind the Heroes Conference.
“Don’t worry too much about it. The rules are not for show, but such things are unavoidable. After all, people of great power hope that their younger generation can become heroes as it can elevate their reputation…”
“Thus, such things are not uncommon. Of course, if they come across any talents who are not pleasing to the eye and have no background, or those who refuse to join any major forces, they’ll generally be given the worst venues,” Laurie added with a trace of fear in her eyes.
Rowan was taken aback upon hearing this.
What the hell was this the Heroes Conference?
It was nothing more than a place to get rid of opposition!
Talents who refused to join any major forces had to be killed?
What logic was this?
”This sounds interesting. Is there no one to stop these people?” Rowan fumed under his breath, and Laurie shook her head.
“You should know that those in power have the final say in this world. Without power, you’ll always be the weaker party. Don’t try to reason with the powerful, because what they say is the law,” Laurie said flatly, and Rowan nodded.
”That’s right, the word of the powerful is the law!”
