Reincarnated as an Energy with a System - Chapter 1224
Clara was confused, terrified, and felt all sorts of other emotions as she tried to figure out just where the hell they were. Her own emotions from having just taken a revenge that was nearly 30 years old were overwhelming her and now she felt others that she couldn't explain.
She looked around at where she was. First thing that surprised her was that it was daytime right now. Had she fallen asleep somehow? Where had the last 12 hours disappeared to?
And then there was the fact that she was stepping on sand, looking at the vast blue ocean in front of her.
What exactly was going on?
"You're tired, right?" a voice spoke behind her.
She quickly turned around to see the older Ning, laying down on the sand, enjoying the sun.
Once again, she saw the weird clothes he wore and looked worried and confused. "Who are you exactly?" she asked. "Are you really Ning?"
"I am," Ning said. "Come sit. I'll tell you what you want to know. Just rest for now."
She took up his advice and sat on the sand, lying back as she looked at the clear blue sky. She didn't speak and neither did Ning.
The silence brought her to a calmness that forced her to think over things.
She had done it. She finally got time to realize that she had managed to do something that she had wanted to for the last 25 years and had given up on already.
She came to the understanding that she had avenged her family and that brought her to tears that no pain could ever.
"I did it!" she cried without closing her eyes, staring directly at the sky "I did it!"
Ning smiled and looked at the sky as well, letting her cry for a while.
The gentle ocean wind blew across them, and the two stayed there for a while.
"Are you done?" Ning asked her.
"Yes," she said. "Are you really Ning?"
Ning chuckled at the question. "How many times must I answer before you accept it?" he asked.
"I saw your dead body," she said. "It's hard to accept it, your know?"
"I know," Ning said. "How should I explain this then. I am not someone from this world to begin with."
Clara nodded for a second before cocking her head to the side to look at him in confusion. "What do you mean by that?" she asked.
"I'm not from this world," Ning said. "I come from the stars basically."
"Liar," she said.
"It's not a lie," Ning said.
"How would you come from the sky? You can't live up there. People have tried to go there, but no one can breathe after a while. They all come down," she said.
"True," Ning said. "But I live on a planet just like this."
"I don't trust you," she said.
Ning smiled. "Then why don't you take a look."
Clara disappeared for a second and appeared on top of a large building, looking down on a world with boats that flew in the sky and people that flew even higher.
Many people looked at her in confusion and some even came to check on her. Before they could do anything though, she disappeared, arriving back on the beach.
"Wh-wh-what was that?" she shouted in fear.
"My world," Ning said. "The one I came from. It's a different world from yours, isn't it?"
"What did you do to me?" she asked. "A hallucination?"
"No, I sent you to my world for a second," Ning said. "Was it fun?"
"No, it was scary," she said. "How can there be so many carriages and people that fly in there. Does everyoine have Wind Essence?"
"Oh, there is no Essence in my world," Ning said. "It is instead filled with Qi and Mana. A different type of energy that follow similar rules as Essence, but manifest as completely different laws."
"Qi? Mana?" the girl looked confused.
"You don't have to worry about those," Ning said. "Just know that I am not from this world. That is enough for you."
"Then… who was the Ning that we met. If that is you, how are there two of you?" she asked.
"There aren't two of me, exactly," Ning said. "I just have multiple bodies. And with multiple bodies, I can change around to whatever I want."
"Then… what was that?" she asked. "Why were you in that weak body? Why did you hide your strength? You could've done so many things with the strength you have right now."
"I can," Ning said. "But I chose not to. It's not easy living a fun life when you are so strong. Life gets boring soon."
"So, when I came to this world, I sought to do something," Ning said. "Have an adventure that a normal person would have. So, I made myself a weak body and started my journey."
"Not that it started so normally. I was only in the town for just 2 days when I was roped into your gang, forced to fight for you. It was certainly not normal," he said.
"You… so you lied about your amnesia?" she asked.
"Of course," Ning said. "I couldn't tell you where I really came from."
He grinned at her, which she refused to look at. She thought for a second and asked another question. "Now that your adventure has been cut short, are you going to make a new body? Can you do that?"
"No, I'm done with my adventure as a normal person in this world. I've achieved what I could've achieved as a normal person. Now, I live as myself. I'll roam the other continents for a while and then maybe I will decide to leave this planet too, finally," he said.
Clara didn't really understand what he meant, but she understood enough. "Alright," she said getting up from the sand. "Now that you've said so much, tell me this. Just where the hell are we?"
"This?" Ning asked, looking around at the small island he was on. "This is the place I arrived on when I came to this planet for the first time."
