Chapter 1 Released From Prison
“I’m finally out,” Jared Chance exclaimed as he forcefully took a deep breath of fresh air.
Behind him was Horington Prison, where he had been locked up for the past three years. Today was the day he was released.
“Hmm, I wonder how my parents are doing.”
With a torn canvas bag on his back, Jared hurried home right away. Over the last three years, his parents never visited him. Hence, he was worried about them.
On the way home, Jared kept looking at the bronze-colored ring he was wearing.
There was a lifelike dragon carved on it. On top of the dragon’s head was a special symbol.
The ring was given to him by Draco, a friend from prison.
Draco was a strange man. He would constantly ramble on about how he was the leader of the Dragon Sect and knew everything, including astrology, geography, medicine, and many more. Not only that, he even claimed that he could bring back someone from the dead.
Everyone treated Draco as a madman and ignored him accordingly. Only Jared would chat with him and share his food occasionally.
Draco would tell Jared all sorts of strange stories about the Dragon Sect and Dragon Island. These were names that Jared had never heard before.
Moreover, Draco would get Jared to accompany him in his meditation and martial arts training. Given how bored Jared was in prison, he gladly went along with it.
At the end of three years, Jared had learned a plethora of martial art techniques and medical skills from Draco.
On the fateful day of Jared’s release, Draco gave the ring to Jared and told him to go to Nameless Island within the Eastern Sea on the fifteenth of July that year. There, he was supposed to flash his ring and someone would pick him up. When that happened, Jared would be bestowed with a wonderful opportunity.
Considering how much he had learned from Draco, Jared naturally took his words seriously and promised to do as he was told. Nevertheless, there were still a few more months to go before July.
Before he knew it, Jared had arrived at the entrance to his home. When he saw the dilapidated house in front of him, he felt a sense of bitterness, as he had no knowledge of how his parents held up during the three years. Due to my rash actions, my parents must have suffered a lot.
Thinking back to what had happened three years ago, Jared was filled with anger.
Back then, he and his girlfriend, Sandy Gibson, were at the stage where they were talking about marriage. They were classmates at university and had been in a relationship for two years.
One day, when he was walking Sandy back home, both of them ran into Leyton Scott, who was drunk.
Leyton was a rich kid in Horington, well-known for all his misdeeds.
When he saw how pretty Sandy was, he harbored lecherous intentions against her and began touching her physically.
As a famous rich kid, Leyton didn’t even bother to look at Jared.
Consequently, Jared was incensed when he saw his girlfriend being taken advantage of.
