496 I Want to Become Stronger
seeing the look of shock and horror on his parents' faces, jiang fei knew that it was all caused by the inexplicable things they had just witnessed today. while they were sleeping soundly, some people had broken in through the window and kidnapped the both of them. the kidnappers' single touch caused jiang fei's parents to lose their ability to move completely and thereafter they were forcefully carried out of the window.

although this might not sound like a great ordeal at first, jiang fei's family actually stayed on the hundredth floor of manda square. the distance from the window of their room to the ground was almost three hundred meters high. anyone who fell to the ground from that height would certainly die from the crash.
however, the kidnappers were able to traverse effortlessly on the absolute vertical wall as if they were running on a flat surface. they jumped from building to building which were ten meters apart in a single leap. such acts were unfathomable by ordinary people like jiang fei's parents.
after being brought to the garden by their kidnappers who moved as fast as race cars, jiang fei's parents overheard a few things from the kidnappers' conversations. they found out that the reason they were being kidnapped was due to jiang fei's misgivings with certain individuals. however, as neither of them were familiar with the martial arts sphere, they were unable to figure out who exactly jiang fei had crossed.
in the eyes of jiang fei's parents, he was merely a normal student. although jiang fei excelled in his academics and might have made some people jealous, how could he have possibly gotten himself in trouble with such abnormal humans?
therefore, at the current point of time, jiang fei's parents felt a mix of fear and confusion. when jiang fei finally arrived in his zhuge shanzhen costume to get his parents, and even though his parents could hear his shouts, they did not ponder too much on it. only after the two were brought out of the mountainous region and when they personally witnessed an old man flying on a sword did they look utterly dumbfounded.
even normal martial artists would gape when they see someone flying on a sword, let alone normal human beings. therefore, jiang fei's parents were still not able to recover from the shock. whatever they have witnessed today was beyond their imagination. as such, even their comprehension toward the world could not adequately explain what they had just seen.
"let's go!" jiang fei did not want to stay too long at the same spot. therefore, he did not immediately explain what was going on to his parents. instead, he carried both of his parents who now had weak limbs and allowed them to rest on his gigantic sword. although the anti-gravity hoverboard was only two-meters long, it was still possible to have three people stand on it.
after his parents had stabilized themselves, jiang fei took to the sky. in the blink of an eye, they were gone from the mountainous region. in awe with the might of a level 5 metahuman, despite being an advanced level 4 metahuman, the elder from the soaring cloud sect dared not retaliate against jiang fei as he brought his parents away.
jiang fei did not bring his parents home right away. instead, he located a small town nearby and landed at a place where no one else seemed to be around. as he was running on a tight schedule, he did not have time to send his parents home. moreover, it was not exactly safe for them to be at home at that point in time.
jiang fei did not reveal his true identity to his parents right then. he dropped them off and took to the sky once again. after removing his zhuge shanzhen costume in the air, he descended at a location somewhere not too far from his parents.
within a few strides, jiang fei arrived before his parents. he discovered that they were still in a state of shock. after the inhumane kidnapping they had just experienced, and even the personal experience of flying on a sword, it was not surprising that they could not recollect themselves in such a short span of time.
"dad! mom! are you okay?" jiang fei felt tears rolling down his cheeks. he truly feared for their lives. the metahuman world was a dangerous one in which his parents, who were both normal human beings, could easily be endangered. they were as vulnerable as a flicker of flame in the face of gusty wind. the remnants of energy waves from a battle would be enough to end their lives. it was pure luck that the two of them were able to be rescued by jiang fei in time.
"little fei!" when jiang fei's mother saw him, she finally cracked. all of a sudden, she hugged both jiang fei and his father as she started sobbing helplessly.find authorized novels in webnovel，faster updates, better experience，please click for visiting.
at that moment, jiang fei's dad's eyes were filled with tears too. the trauma from the experience of the night felt like the sum of his entire life. however, jiang fei's' father was able to recollect himself much faster as he was a businessman who had weathered through a lot of the difficulties in life.
"little fei, are you keeping something from us?" jiang fei's father stared at him as he asked.
"this…" jiang fei hesitated for a moment. things had already gone haywire and he knew he could no longer keep them in the dark. therefore, jiang fei told his parents everything about martial artists and metahumans.
however, jiang fei did not mention the mysterious ring or braveheart. he only told his parents about the china martial arts alliance and the level 5 master, as well as the fact that he was a level 4 expert himself.
although jiang fei's parents could not fully comprehend the amount of information he was sharing in that instant, they knew that their son had stepped foot on a path that was completely different from the life they were familiar with.
since jiang fei's parents had already been roped into the metahuman world, jiang fei braced himself as he asked his parents, "dad, mom, i am able to get some potions and treasures from my master to increase a human's capabilities rapidly. would you like to obtain special abilities like us?"
jiang fei felt as if he did not have a choice. he could not possibly protect his parents twenty-four hours a day. just as what had happened today, his parents could potentially be kidnapped again despite them being in such close proximity to jiang fei. therefore, jiang fei hoped to equip his parents with the ability to defend themselves through the armors and potions 0541 produced.
"there's no need, little fei. your mother and i are used to the normal human being's way of life. a life of fighting and killing is not for us…" jiang fei's father said as he shook his head.
"that's right, little fei. i like to go shopping, buy groceries, and cook every day like every other normal person. your father and i are far too old to live the life of martial arts novels…" jiang fei did not expect his parents to reject his suggestion so decisively. they did not seem to be interested at all in metahuman strengths and abilities.
"sigh. alright." after several attempts to persuade his parents, jiang fei finally gave up as they had both made up their minds.
'if that's the case, the only way to protect my parents is to make sure i become strong enough to fend off any potential threat!' jiang fei thought to himself while looking for a hotel in the small town for his parents.
right then, jiang fei felt a pressure that he had never experienced before. he had never wanted to become more powerful as much as he did now. although he could rely on his made-up master and his ability to summon phoenix once more to solve a lot of problems, the soaring cloud sect taught him an invaluable lesson today.
jiang fei was not the only one who had the backing of a level 5 metahuman. if someone else who had the support of a level 5 metahuman decided to go against jiang fei, he would be helpless in protecting himself and his family.
"i must become stronger! external strength is still external after all. there will come a day when that cannot be relied upon. if i have level 5 metahuman powers or even greater than that, who would dare to touch my family?" jiang fei mumbled to himself.
"captain, if you want to obtain powers, the fastest way to do so is to collect the missing braveheart's fragments." 0541 interrupted jiang fei's thoughts.
"i know!" jiang fei nodded to himself. he was far too lax in his efforts in the past and always relied on emergency plans. although he had the target of becoming stronger, he did not have any pressure to do so. now that he had experienced both of his parents getting kidnapped, jiang fei became much more determined. he knew that he must become stronger as soon as possible to protect himself and the people who mattered to him the most.
