After the wuxia twin familiarized with me with a brief introduction, they finally took about the closest city from here which also their city, 'Starry night city'. They also insisted on going back there together, so I agreed rather easily as having a guide would probably be much better than barging there without introduction.
"Mr. Ian! Please accept my heartfelt thanks!"
The blonde girl, Grace, who probably heard my name earlier, shouted excitedly, unexpectedly shifting from her dumbfounded look into an elated one.
"Hmmm, sure, it was nothing, I was merely passing by"
The trio looked at each other in disbelief, would someone clear a dark cave just by passing by? However, it was truly so, all of this wouldn't have happened if the system didn't send me deep there.
"Mr. Ian sure likes jesting, in any case you are still the savior of our city, if not for you it would have erupted in less than three days. I shall tell my father to reward you accordingly, please follow me"
'Huh? It was merely 1 hour away from erupting when I first entered, could it be that their methods of calculation are wrong?!'
I had absolute trust in 'Eye of knowledge', so I could only doubt their own methods. However, now wasn't the time to discuss that.
"Then lead the way!"
We disembarked back to starry night city, while I was deeply in thought.
3 hours later…..
"Oh, it's Grace and the twins!"
"Although I'd rather welcome you back, what happened? Why did you get back so early?"
"Don't tell me that even our best genius team also couldn't beat that cave?!"
The guards at the city gate accompanied by some city dwellers started raining questions on the trio.
"Calm down! We are no longer in constant danger, the dark cave has already been destroyed!"
"Woah, to think that you accomplished such hard task in less than an hour, all I could say is as expected of you, true genius!"
"Also, who is that lad with you, was he someone that you rescued from the dark cave?"
The people with blind trust started feeding the trio with praise till the point of bloatedness, and just as they tried to explain everything, I gestured to them to stop it, since the people were happy with trio it wasn't the time to ruin this event with details…
Soon enough we passed into the city easily as it bustled with happiness, which didn't seem to fit with the gloomy evacuation preparation that were quite apparent.
Our first destination was the city governor's manor who was also Grace's father, they had to report back to him now that the crisis was averted...….
