It's close to noon now, there are more pedestrians walking around now...
These are all residents of the supply town. Customers who are here to procure supplies from Giant Beast Forest operation formed the minority here.
There are only two destinations for the resources harvested from the Giant Beast Forest: the capital and the supply town where it will be circulated to the rest of the empire.
The latter is the reason why the supply town is still named a supply town. Without trade involving the resources from the Giant Beast Forest, most businesses here will dry up and close shops.
The pedestrians parted to the sides as if royalty is passing through. Judging by the shocked and intrigued looks of the pedestrians here, it's fair to say the target being watched is probably not an admirable person...
"Unhand me! Release me now!"
Lana yelled with teary eyes while Wu Yan tirelessly marched on. She's blushing like she's about to be taken advantage of. Her fiery pair of eyes protested on her behalf.
She can feel the curious, shocked, and confused looks the other pedestrians are giving her. She can faintly hear their whispers and she felt very ashamed. She wanted to drill into a hole and hide in it.
Lana is embarrassed for a good reason.
The black ring binding her isn't gone.
To add to her humiliation, there's a black leash connecting the ring with Wu Yan's hand.
She's the precious princess of the Feya empire but she's being led around like a dog on a leash.
Why wouldn't she be ashamed?
Fortunately, Lana kept her princess title mum. If she leaked that out then there's going to be another PR disaster.
More like, she wouldn't even if she had twice the guts.
For now, she's just the strange girl being walked around on a leash. If she leaked her identity, she's going to be known as the princess who got led around like a dog.
Where is she going to find the face to endure what comes after that?
Furthermore, this is already embarrassing enough as it is.
She continued struggling against the ring binding her. That ring can seal her magic power and all the struggling she did since they left the hotel an hour ago led to nothing. She wanted to cry but couldn't for the lack of tears.
"Let me go!"
"Aren't you afraid of my revenge?!"
"You did your best to exact said revenge on me."
Wu Yan chuckled.
"Suppose I did release you, what are you going to do?"
"That goes without saying."
Lana continued matter-of-factly.
"I am going to teach you a lesson. I am going to make Sister Sylph realize you're just trash that can't beat a young girl. Then, she's going to dump you and you two will never hang out again!"
Wu Yan turned around.
"I assumed you wanted to say: 'I am going to kill you and save Sister Sylph', or something like that..."
Lana hammered her palm.
"Oh! That's a good idea!"
Wu Yan's lip twitched and he rolled his eyes at her.
"I am now fully convinced that you're a lesbo, a terrible one too."
"You're the Yuri girl here! What right do you have to say I failed?"
Lana said something contradictory.
"You failed without a doubt."
Wu Yan started explaining himself.
"A true Yuri girl will always refer to her love interest as 'Onee-sama'. She will also always seek out the opportunity to rub her face all over said Onee-sama's modest chest. Hatching plans to get into the bed with her Onee-sama, she's also not above roofing her Onee-sama. She will even take whippings from her Onee-sama like it's nothing. When someone of the opposite gender approaches her Onee-sama, a true Yuri girl will say something like 'Watch me bury you six feet under' or 'As the loyal guard of my dear Onee-sama, it's my duty to beat down any ape trying to defile my Onee-sama'..."
Wu Yan started ranting while Lana listened much to her shock. She's shocked because after listening to that rambling, she actually felt inadequate and subpar.
"You make very good points..."
Lana nodded. She raised her head and she started getting excited.
"Very well! Lana's going to call Sister Sylph, Onee-sama from now on!"
Wu Yan almost stumbled. He wiped away the cold sweat on his forehead and he felt guilty.
Did I just convert an innocent Yuri girl to a deviant one?
I screwed up badly...
Wu Yan did the sign of the cross and he prayed for forgiveness.
"Sylph, please don't blame me. I was just retorting, I pray your lifestyle remains unchanged from now on..."
Lana didn't take kindly to Wu Yan's mumbling.
"You! What are you whispering over there?!"
He rolled his eyes. He noticed the silk mask she's wearing and he narrowed his eyes.
"Right, why are you wearing that silk mask? Are you so unsightly?!"
"You're the unsightly one here!"
She shrieked like a cat with its tail stepped on.
"This P- Young lady is very beautiful, I don't expect a cheap oaf like you to appreciate my exquisiteness."
"A cheap oaf?"
Wu Yan's vein bulged near his temples.
"Why are you wearing that mask if you're not an uggo?"
"You think I want to do this?!"
"When I got here I was fine. The men of Ailu must be high on drugs or something. They kept sticking to me like dirty flies so I wore this to avoid further unwanted attention..."
Wu Yan raised an eyebrow.
"I mean you're pretty enough for the flies to come flying..."
Lana is a bit smug.
"I am a princess, after all, I need to look the part..."
"You shine with a little compliment huh..."
Wu Yan walked on while tugging the leash in his hand.
Lana isn't too happy Wu Yan pulled the rope like that.
"Where are you taking me?!"
"Do I need to say?"
Wu Yan pursed his lips.
"You're coming back to the base with me!"
"I was planning on freeing you but knowing your motivation, you're just going to come barking and chomping when I let you go, right?"
Lana is still energetic despite her predicament.
"If I don't get you and Sister Sylp- Onee-sama's engagement nulled, I will never let this go!"
Wu Yan sighed.
"I can't let you go and abandoning you here also isn't feasible. I am going to take you back with me and ask the captains to send you back to Feya empire or escort you to Silvaria World Institute!"
"What?! You're going to send me back?!"
Lana struggled in panic.
"No no no! I don't wanna!"
"Why are you so adamant on this?!"
Wu Yan tugged the rope.
"Don't tell me you came here without informing someone?!"
"Pssh, no way."
Lana said while she continued to struggle.
"I am not going back until you void the engagement. Void the engagement with Onee-sama and I am out of your hair!"
Wu Yan pursed his lips.
"This engagement caused me quite the trouble but Sylph didn't cancel it so what right do you have to object to this?"
"No way! Onee-sama will never love a low-quality male like you!"
Lana struggled and she screamed.
"Let go of me!"
Wu Yan pulled the rope regardless of Lana's protest. Together, the two marched towards the forward operating base in the Giant Beast Forest.
