Chapter 887 Did You Come Alone
Grey easily maneuvered into the city and after walking around for a while, he saw people gathered. It was just like the time Keith and the others wanted to be executed. A platform was already set up and the youths captured were there, with a man with blue skin which signified the water element.
'They tend to enjoy watching executions, don't you think so' Void asked curiously as he looked at the number of people gathered there.
'After suffering under the hands of those people from the Syphilis Faction for so long, it's normal for them to enjoy watching the death of their presumed mortal enemies.' Grey replied casually.
It didn't take long before they saw the people who were about to be executed.
'She looks familiar.' Void said.
'Eva, since she's here, that moron should be too.' Grey answered while looking at the people who were to be executed.
He didn't see anyone else he recognized, which meant Nathan was not captured along with Eva. He was a little surprised since they were always together.
'We'll split up here, try to search for Alec. I'll stop this execution.' Grey instructed.
Void nodded before disappearing from his shoulder.

Grey was wearing a dark robe, and he also had a black skin color which signified either the space or darkness element, so it was almost impossible for others to see Void when he was with him given his small figure.
Time passed by slowly, and after a long speech, the Mayor of the city declared the start of the execution. Unlike the previous city, there were over ten experts at the Peak of the Sage Plane currently present, including the Mayor, who was about to execute the members of the Pyrmond Faction. With such a number, it would be difficult for Grey to rescue everyone.
The Mayor raised his hand and an ice sword appeared in the air, he slashed it down instantly.
A young lady was the first who was about to be executed.
Just as the ice sword was about to hit the young lady, a figure appeared beside her and a stream of fire exploded out.
'Found Alec.' Void's voice echoed in Grey's head.
'I can see him.' Grey replied while staring at Alec who just blocked the attack.
He was about to make a move when he sensed a ripple in the space close to the young lady. Although stopping was a risk considering he had no idea if the person who wanted to appear was a friend or foe, he couldn't rush there as well.
The Mayor retreated when the stream of fire exploded out and blocked it. Sensing the strength of the attack, he chuckled.
Grey also noticed this as well. He knew Alec wasn't even in the Late stages of the Sage Plane, much less the Peak.
'Taking such a risk.' He shook his head but decided to watch on.
Either Alec had a plan of rescuing these people, or he foolishly jumped to his death, either way, Grey would find out as the event unfolds.
"You weak human dare to stand before me" The Mayor asked coldly.

Alec didn't understand a thing the Mayor said, but he felt it wasn't anything good, for him.
Grey had the urge of translating, but he stayed put.
Alec stood in front of the young lady who was about to be executed.
"Let them go." Alec pointed at the people captured while trying to convey his message through motions.
When the Mayor saw his movements, he didn't need anyone to translate since he knew Alec wanted him to let go of his prisoners.
His reply, was an attack.
Ice shards sprouted out of the ground, and almost stabbed the people who were captured.
Alec tapped his foot on the ground and most of the ice that were coming from the ground turned to water after melting from the heat.
Grey was impressed by Alec's performance, one had to know that Alec was in the Third stage of the Sage Plane, while the Mayor was at the Peak. The difference in strength was not something that could be cut short with just talent alone.
'The Mayor's going easy on him. If my guess is correct, he's waiting for the main attacker.' Grey thought while looking around.
His thoughts were the same as the Mayor's, there must be someone stronger than Alec watching from the side.
'It could be that guy.'
Nathan was the only one Grey could think of due to his close relationship with Eva.
The Mayor continued his attacks, and as time went on, he started to increase the force behind his attacks.
A blizzard started in the area where Alec and the captured members of the Pyrmond Faction were located. Other than Alec, the rest started to freeze from the cold within a matter of seconds.
Alec was having a hard time keeping himself safe, he didn't have time to thaw the ice that had started to cover the others.
Grey frowned when he saw this, he was waiting for the other person, but no one had made any moves yet.
'Is this part of their plan, or did he really jump to his death' He was confused by what was happening.
'Void, make contact with him, try to stay out of sight. If not, just appear beside him, it's not like the Mayor would focus on you and leave him alone.' Grey contacted Void.
Void complained for some time but still did as he was told. He made Grey promise to make him a meal, and Grey had no issues with doing that.
While Grey and Void were talking, the Mayor increased his attack intensity. With a wave, multiple ice arrows shot at Alec and the other members of the Faction.
Alec created a fire screen, but it was easily broken through by the arrows as they pierced the bodies of the youths that were captured.
Alec on the other hand was pushed a few meters away from the spot he was standing.
He was about to move forward when he heard a small voice beside his way.
