It's a race against time. But the challenge gets even harder as there is a certain difficulty that they both have to overcome. With Bai Li facing his own inner demons, will their quest for truth spiral out of control? Will he get his honour back? Who is the enemy hiding in the shadows that Xin Lei and Bai Li would have to fight? Along this journey to find their answers, will it also spark the flames of love between them? *** Amidst the booming crack of ear-piercing gunshots, Xin Lei bumped into the ex-army officer, Major Bai Li, who recently got a dishonorable discharge. He was the only hope for her who could help her in digging the truth behind not only that syndicate chasing after her life but also to find about her father and brother who have mysteriously disappeared. Together, they set out to search for the truth, but it shapes into something much darker and sinister as they learn about the case Xin Lei's father was working on - to prove a father innocent of his little daughter's disappearance, plunging them into one of the dangerous worlds, hidden from everybody. --- Scene Excerpt --- My foot was stuck in the pit and I pushed Bai Li away from me who was trying to get me out. There was no time. The sounds of sirens were growing closer and closer. How can I let the police catch him? But my strength wasn't enough. I tugged his shirt. I begged him. 'Please go.' Bai Li grabbed my arms. "Don't push me away, Xin Lei. Soldiers never leave anyone behind. It's either we are caught together or we escape together." Before I knew it, his lips were on mine. "Whatever it is, sticking together is the only option I give you." --- Hello my dearest readers~~ This is my second novel and my entry for the Webnovel Spirity Award 2020!

A super short story of three chapters about a man and a dying will. Thought about writing this story one day when I was walking on a winter night with a couple of pizzas. I was listening to The National, and my favorite song came in "About Today", feeling the cold weather on my cheeks and the warmth of my eyes. I might add a few side stories along the way. Cover made by Amber, my girlfriend and my inspiration. Support the author, a.k.a me: *paypal.me/gicetolu Chapters are released at 12.00 PM, daily. At least the 3 in queue. Side Stories will be random.
"What would you rather? Floating in eternal darkness or...serving me? As my champion?" "Honestly? Neither, why in the world would I choose to be a servant in my next life?!" "Hm, then I suppose-" "Now hold on, I wasn't finished thinking this out." She let out a sigh, this life sounded like a 50/50 deal in all honesty. Her old life wasn't the best but it wasn't the total worst. School was rough but she had companions to get her through it. Home life was great and all but it was dull. She called herself decent-looking but...there were days when she felt like she was at the bottom of the barrel. Another life meant a second chance right? A sense of renewal and to be better and greater than the person she originally was. To finally put all her teachings to the ultimate test? It was the chance of a lifetime! "Ah, what the hell? Beats staying in eternal darkness with embarrassing memories, I'll say that much."
