Tang Wulin looked at his partner in the window seat beside him and saw a pair of delicate, slender hands on two knees. A girl?He nodded at her when White Seventurned to meet his eyes. She nodded back and turned her head back towards the view outside her window, although the bus was parked in the Tang Sect and there was not much for her to see.
“Close the curtains,” Black One called out. “I don’t want to draw unwanted attention.”
Reluctantly White Seven reached up with her pretty hand and pulled the curtain close; it would seem she was moreinterested in what was outside the window than who was sitting beside her. The other window seat occupants did as they were bid without hesitation.
The bus started and rolled out of the back gate. The driver took a quiet side street, and before long they were out of the city and on a highway. The scene outside the windshield had changed from giant buildings to extensive plots of farmland and small hills.
It was almost noon when Black One had an agent hand out food and water. Tang Wulin removed the lower part of his mask and dug in. White Seven watched with wide eyes as her partner wolfed down his food in a matter of mere seconds. It was tasty, but nowhere near enough, not for Tang Wulin at least. He had a dragon’s appetite as well as a dragon’s power. Having sat for four hours, he wanted to take a nap, but his stomach was protesting by giving him pangs.

He hoped they were having a good time.
Night was falling, and thebus was still speeding. After a simple supper, White Seven closed her eyes to sleep.
Around midnight, they drove offthe highway onto a mountain road. After a long and winding road, a town appeared in front of Tang Wulin’s eyes.
The bus stopped before a three-story building. It was wooden and quaint, with the Tang Sect’s emblem on its door.
