God and Devil World - Chapter 641-650
Chapter 641: Killing Ku Kinken!!
Having suffered such an attack from the Dino-General, Greenie also howled out in misery, flapping its wings to soar higher. One of its claws had been destroyed, even with the regenerative power of the Type 4 Mutant Beast, it would take another 1 or 2 days to recover. Meanwhile, its combat prowess was definitely affected.
Ku Kinken tumbled on the ground once before getting up immediately. At this time, Yue Zhong had already appeared in front of him with his Battle Spear, thrusting viciously.
Ku Kinken’s eyes flashed dangerously, sending an elbow strike. His sharp bone elbow slammed into Yue Zhong’s body, causing his body to crumble and disappear in a puff.
Ku Kinken was shocked, right behind him, another Battle Spear shot out towards his back filled with Yue Zhong’s power. At the same time, his body was weighed down by a sudden gravitational force.
Ku Kinken was also an experienced fighter, without even looking, it swung its sharp tail towards the direction Yue Zhong was at.
Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed fiercely as the Battle Spear was set ablaze with his Devil Flame, sending a powerful blow towards Ku Kinken’s chest. The Devil Flame instantly enveloped the Dino-General.
At the same time, Yue Zhong was slammed in the chest by the sharp tail. The force, combined with the sharp spikes, were enough to tear through the Sun Battle Armor, piercing into his body. At the same time, the immense force forced him a few hundred meters away. Yue Zhong tumbled for a few rounds, spitting out a large amount of blood.
Ku Kinken was not any better off. His body was enveloped in flames, as he screamed in pain. The Radiance of Life continued to glow, blocking the burning flames.
Liu Mei’er, who had been hiding one side, saw Yue Zhong being sent flying, and her eyes flashed with fear. She turned around to run towards Turtle.
Han Zi Xuan looked at Ku Kinken and his radiance, her eyes flashing with a decisive look. Her Storm Armor glowed as the Type 3 nucleus released its power. Under the enhancement, her strength was raised to the threshold of Type 4. She readied her Battle Spear and charged right behind Ku Kinken, thrusting her spear into his heart.
His heart had been destroyed, the Radiance of Life around him crumbling. The Devil Flames then continued to consume his body, causing him to scream.
As he screamed, his latent combat ability lashed out, as he sent a fist towards Han Zi Xuan’s chest. The terrifying strength burst out, penetrating through her Storm Battle Armor, sending her flying back dozens of meters.
“Damn it!! How can I die here!! How can I die at the hands of these ants!! I’m not willing!!!”
As he screamed, the Devil Flames on Ku Kinken’s body continued to burn, as he turned into a pile of ash, while a large amount of life force went into Yue Zhong.
“Congratulations, you have gained Vitality +30, Endurance +20!”
“Congratulations on killing a Mid-Grade Dino-General, you have gained +3 skill points. Since you have completed your objective, you can also reopen the Gates to the 2nd World.”
The moment the life force of the Type 5 Ku Kinken entered Yue Zhong’s body, a number of notifications rang out, at the same time, with the enhancement, Yue Zhong’s Regeneration kicked in and his wounds began to heal.
The Type 5 Divine Warrior’s life force was even more precious than the meat of a Type 5 Mutant Beast. With its nourishment, Yue Zhong’s Regeneration could exhibit its fullest potential, his wounds healing at a visible rate.
Once he could move, Yue Zhong flashed and appeared beside Han Zi Xuan.
Currently, her chest had been blasted wide open by Ku Kinken, and one could see her destroyed organs and flesh. It was a terrifying sight, and she was not far from death. Although she was a peak-Type 3 Divine Warrior, she did not have Yue Zhong’s Regeneration. To most normal people, having their chest burst open and their organs destroyed would be extremely fatal.
Han Zi Xuan’s eyes were half-closed and she could not say anything. She just looked at him, a look of comfort flashing past her eyes. At least she had completed her mission as a warrior.
The life force of humans was not comparable to Dino-people. Ku Kinken was able to scream and make noise even with his heart penetrated. As for humans, once their hearts were pierced, most would die on the spot. Other than some special cases like Yue Zhong, or those who had life extension-related abilities.
Yue Zhong grabbed her pale hands and barked out, “Don’t give up! With me around, you will not die!”
To those heavily injured, willpower was an important factor. If they did not have the intention to fight for their lives, then even the most miraculous medicine would not be able to drag them from away from death.
With that, Yue Zhong then pulled out the vial of the Type 9 expert’s blood. He took one in his mouth and quickly bent down to kiss Han Zi Xuan on her lips, passing the drop of blood through her throat.
A Type 9 Divine Warrior was extremely powerful, reaching the levels of god-like existences. Each of them would be mythical or legendary characters. Their blood held precious and valuable opportunities. To lower-level lifeforms, it was a sort of miracle drug.
The moment the blood entered Han Zi Xuan’s body, a large life force coursed through her body, instantly repairing her broken parts, healing the various wounds and injuries. Even her eyes regained some form of spirit.
When she regained her energy, she saw Yue Zhong kissing her and her eyes flashed with embarrassment, and her face flushed.
Yue Zhong lifted his head and saw this valiant female warrior, her expression one of shyness now, and his heart could not help but skip a beat. However, he recovered quickly, and barked, “Liu Mei’er! Come over!! Take care of Han Zi Xuan! If she dies, you can forget about living also!”
Liu Mei’er heard his tone and her face changed, gritting her teeth to reply, “Yes!”
She was clear that Yue Zhong was someone who would kill without batting an eyelid. If she dared to disobey him, she might really incur his wrath. Even with her looks, it would not help her one bit.
After she was called over, Yue Zhong gently placed the brave Han Zi Xuan down, while allocating the 3 skill points to his Dark Dou Qi, reaching the +2 stage. With a tap of his foot, he charged over to Turtle.
There were still 3 Mid-Grade Dino-Generals that were not dead, if any of them were to get on Turtle’s back, their party would perish.
The combat abilities of a Mid-Grade Dino-General was too terrifying. Even with his light-gold Sun Armor, he was struggling against them.
He swiftly arrived at Turtle’s head, only to see Turtle opening its jaws to fire out an icy storm at the 3 Dino-Generals.
They were still on the water, trying to dodge Turtle’s attacks. At the same time, they were trying to get closer.
Turtle was extremely crafty though, as it spat out the ice picks, it would retreat slowly. Each time the 3 Dino-Generals got closer, it would then utilize its innate ability to fire out a snowstorm to retreat further.
Yue Zhong heaved a sigh of relief, as long as they had no way of getting up on Turtle, he had a chance.
All of a sudden, a large tentacle came bursting out of the water, coiling around one of the Dino-Generals, pulling him downwards in a swift motion.
Shock flashed across the face of the Dino-General, and his body burst out with his Radiance of Life. He asserted all his might, and caused his bone blade to twist, slashing the tentacle into pieces.
It was just that once the tentacle was dealt with, another tentacle came slithering up, twisting around the Dino-General and pulling him further into the water. Both parties were engaged in a never-ending tug of war.
The other 2 Dino-Generals exchanged looks, both of them feeling fear. In these waters, danger was everywhere. If they were not careful, they would be ambushed by the aquatic Mutant Beasts.
Right at this time, the humongous Type 5 Triceratops shuddered, before slumping into the water, a large amount of blood pouring out of its mouth.
Mount Tai had slammed its tail viciously, in a bid to quickly defeat the Triceratops.
At the end of the day, Mount Tai held the upper hand. While the Triceratops was also an Overlord-class titan, if it had been on dry land, it could seriously injure Mount Tai in a charge. However, the waters caused its speed to be reduced drastically. Although it had managed to injure Mount Tai, it was not enough to damage it seriously, instead, it was injured severely.
Chapter 642: The Dino-people Retreats!
Seeing the fall of their Type 5 Triceratops, the remaining 2 Dino-Generals exchanged a look and quickly fled as their bodies turned into beams of life. On such terrain, they were not a match for Type 5 Mutant Beast.
Yue Zhong heaved a sigh of relief when he saw that. Turtle had no way to continue utilizing its innate ability. If they were not careful, as long as one of the Dino-General got on the back of Turtle, it would be a disaster for them.
Yue Zhong’s gaze landed on the body of the Type 5 Triceratops, his eyes burning with desire. It was a powerful tool that could be used to break into cities. The moment it started its charge, any tanks and landmine formation would be destroyed by its pure might.
Right now, Yue Zhong had 2 Type 5 Nuclei, one was to power the light-gold Sun Armor, while another could be turned into a Type 5 Puppet Rune, meant to control Type 5 life forms.
Yue Zhong flickered forward, landing on Mount Tai’s body.
Mount Tai was intelligent and seemed to sense Yue Zhong’s intention. The moment Yue Zhong got on its back, it quickly opened its huge jaws to bite down viciously on the head of the Triceratops, before twisting forcefully. A huge, bloody hole was torn out, and Mount Tai’s tongue reached in to gobble up the contents, including the Type 5 nucleus.
Yue Zhong stared at this speechlessly, slapping down on Mount Tai’s head in anger, but could not bring himself to say anything.
All of Yue Zhong’s tamed beasts would consume their enemies’ nuclei to push their own evolution, while he, the master, only got their blood and flesh.
However, at the end of the day, these Mutant Beasts had used their own strength to defeat their enemies, thus Yue Zhong could not snatch their prize as well.
After swallowing the Triceratops nucleus, Mount Tai lowered its head to begin consuming the corpse. Turtle also swam over, munching on the corpse. The meat of these Type 5 Mutant Beasts was after all powerful nutrients to other Mutant Beasts.
The other aquatic Type 4 Mutant Beasts eyed the corpse for a good while, before dispersing helplessly.
Yue Zhong pulled out his tablet and ordered Bai Yi, “I wonder how the Vulture Valley is now! Bai Yi, activate the Storm Battleship and control it to fly here. Give Luo Qing Qing an hour to prepare.”
As a Super A.I, Bai Yi had already infiltrated the Central Computer of the Storm Battleship, replacing the authority of the ship.
Bai Yi replied, “Understood!”
Not long after, Bai Yi appeared on the display of the central computer back in Storm Valley, “Warning! Warning! The Battleship will be moving out after an hour, everyone, please make your preparations! Please make your preparations!”
Luo Qing Qing was in the captain room of the Battleship, when she saw the sudden appearance of Bai Yi, a complicated look appeared on her face, “He’s actually still alive!”
There was a manual and automatic mode of the battleship, if the central computer was affected by some invaders for whatever reason, the manual operation would come in handy.
Of course, within the whole Storm Valley, there was no one capable enough to pilot this Battleship. However, Luo Qing Qing liked to stay in the captain’s room. It was equipped with the decent communication equipment, and she could pass her orders from here.
She immediately gave her order, “Heed my command, everyone is to return to their room, prepare for take-off!!”
Hearing Luo Qing Qing’s order, the people busying on the ship quickly returned to their respective places.
After an hour, the ship glowed once, spitting out a large amount of gas, its speed gradually increasing as it shot into the skies.
Vulture Valley was an elevated place in Green Region, thus, it was currently surrounded by the flood, and the people trapped within the valley, but otherwise fine.
Han Qiong had led a dozen soldiers to the edge of the valley, eyeing the flood below that seemed to have no end, her brows furrowed.
She suddenly asked Ma Lei, “What’s the situation inside?”
Ma Lei responded seriously, “It’s still considered somewhat stable. Previously, after Leader executed those rebels, I think no one dares to act up now. However, it is likely temporary. Once there is an issue with the ration, things might fall apart.”
At this time, the 4 heads of Vulture Valley were Han Qiong, Sun Lan Lan, Shao Yun and Ma Lei. Although Ma Lei was slightly unhappy that Han Qiong was above him in position, seeing the Type 4 Divine Warrior Bolius guarding her, he knew that Han Qiong was more important than him to Yue Zhong. Thus, he could only obediently be her assistant.
Han Qiong considered it all quietly. When Yue Zhong had left and she was left in charge, she finally realized how difficult it was to become a proper leader in this cruel world.
Suddenly, the surface of the lake water churned, and a dozen 20m-long Mutant Water Snakes broke through, crawling up the city wall.
30 Type 2 Divine Warriors rushed up the city wall, wearing their Sun Battle Armor. They wielded powerful bone bows and nocked their arrows. Within seconds, the sharp bone arrows show towards the dozens of Mutant Water Snakes.
The bone arrows were filled with power, piercing the heads of the Mutant Water Snakes. However, their life force was strong, even after being buffeted by a number of arrows, they did not die. Instead, they charged forwards with renewed fury.
The 30 warriors had to fire another three volleys to take down 2 Mutant Water Snakes. Although their strength had been pushed to the Type 3 stage, their accuracy was poor, missing the vital spots of the Mutant Beasts.
Yue Zhong had conquered a number of tribes, and after cleansing those traitors during the uprising, the total number of elites left in his troops were little. There were only about 30 Type 2 Divine Warriors. Even after the enhancement of the Battle Armor, there was still some weakness.
Eyeing the incoming horde of Mutant Water Snakes, a lot of people lost their composure, as fear started to cloud their mind. If the Mutant Beasts were to break through, it would be a disaster.
At this time, Bolius waved his large beast bones and leaped down the city wall. The moment he landed, he appeared right on top of a Mutant Water Snake, smashing down viciously, causing the entire head to cave in.
He continued to weave in and out of the horde, the beast bones in his hand smashing out from time to time, directly killing Mutant Water Snakes with every hit.
Soon, beneath the walls, there was a large pile of snake corpses.
After he was done, Bolius flashed back up the city wall, standing quietly behind Han Qiong.
Seeing how he had casually taken care of the horde, everyone heaved a sigh of relief, their gazes towards him filled with respect and admiration.
At this moment, the waters at a distance started to churn, and a huge Type 4 Mutant Water Snake broke out of the surface of the water.
Beside the Type 4 Mutant Snake, countless Type 3 and Type 2 Mutant Water Snakes formed a disgustingly massive horde as they swarmed over.
When the people on the wall saw the sudden appearance of these snakes, their eyes were all filled with shock. If these snakes broke through the wall, the people within the city walls were sure to perish.
Bolius took one look and barked coldly, “Miss Han Qiong, please make preparations to leave with Miss Sun Lan Lan. I will protect the two of you in your retreat.”
Hearing his words, everyone’s expression turned pale, their morale almost collapsing. Even Ma Lei and Shao Yun were no exception.
Han Qiong’s expression sunk as she rebuked in a righteous manner, “Mr. Bolius, there are over hundreds of thousands of people in this valley, you’re actually thinking of fleeing without fighting, aren’t you ashamed?”
Bolius replied coldly, “There’s only so much I can do. The strongest Mutant Beast is likely a Type 4 Mutant Beast based on my conjectures. With my abilities, there’s only a 5% chance of winning it. However, there are so many other beasts aiding it, thus my success rate has been reduced to 0%. The task that Master Yue Zhong had delegated to me was to keep you and Miss Sun Lan Lan safe. I can sacrifice myself to protect you, but the life and death of everyone else are not within my consideration. If orders are to be changed, it has to be done by Master Yue Zhong.”
After Bolius had been subdued by the Puppet Rune, he had become a tool that only knew how to listen to orders. He would not listen to anyone else.
Ma Lei took a long deep breath, “Forget it! Han Qiong, you and Sun Lan Lan better prepare to leave! You guys have done your best!”
Although he was not willing, he had no way of overpowering Bolius, thus he could only comply.
Han Qiong gritted her teeth and exclaimed, “I won’t leave! I will live and die together with Vulture Valley!! Like this, Bolius, you will have to stay and defend as well! Because your mission is to protect me right? If I die, you will fail our mission as well!”
Chapter 643: Eradicating the Type 4 Mutant Water Snake!
“Then you’ll have to excuse my rudeness!” Bolius replied with an impassive look, before he suddenly dashed behind Han Qiong, and knocked her out with a single strike. He then placed her on his shoulders, before leaping deep into the valley.
Ma Lei turned to Shao Yun and asked, “Aren’t you leaving?”
Shao Yun laughed bitterly, “Now that the entire valley is surrounded by the damn water, other than that freak Bolius, no one else can leave, why not risk it and fight it out? Dying on the battlefield is an honor to us warriors.”
Ma Lei turned to the soldiers on the city wall and barked, “Well said! Brothers! Since we have no way to retreat, this is our final home, if we don’t protect it, who will? Let’s fight to the death!!”
“Fight to the death!!”
“Fight to the death!!”
The soldiers had felt low in spirits when Bolius left, but under the motivation of Ma Lei and Shao Yun, they were rejuvenated. Although they were facing a huge beast, their fear so powerful that their legs were shaky, they were still standing there, eyeing the distance.
Ma Lei looked into the distance at the incoming Mutant Snake horde, and sighed, “If only Leader Yue Zhong was here!! He would definitely have a way to deal with this.”
The moment he spoke about Yue Zhong, Shao Yun’s eyes flashed with a complicated gaze, “If it’s him, he definitely would have a way. It’s just that after he brought that Type 5 Diplodocus to destroy the Sun Alliance, there had been no news. Who knows if he’s dead or alive.”
Shao Yun had followed Yue Zhong in a bid to broaden his horizons and step on a bigger stage. He had seen for himself how Yue Zhong had created miracles after miracles. He knew that he was far from his match, and the jealousy towards him had long since disappeared, leaving only utmost respect.
Before everybody’s eyes, the horde of snakes was getting closer, and the fear in everyone’s heart was rising. The city wall that had fended off so many other Mutant Beasts was nothing to these snakes.
“Look at the sky!!”
Just then, a warrior suddenly pointed to the skies and exclaimed.
Everyone immediately looked up, only to see a floating fortress flying towards them. The gigantic floating city was enough to cover part of the sunlight, therefore almost blocking part of the sky.
Ma Lei looked up and could not help sucking in a cold breath, “That’s a floating city!!”
Shao Yun took a look at the Storm Battleship and conjectured, “There’s actually such a city?! What in the world could it be? Are there gods residing within?”
“May the gods protect us!!”
“May the gods protect us!!”
“May the gods protect us and lead us through this!!”
The soldiers began to get on their knees, praying and kowtowing to the ship.
The physique of the human warriors on this world was much stronger than those on Earth. However, most of them had never received any education before. Many did not know how to perform simple maths and were quite simple in intelligence. Hence, when they saw something they did not understand, they would attribute it to the higher powers.
As they prayed, a figure clad in light-gold suddenly descended down from the skies, turning into a beam of light that landed directly on the head of the Type 4 Mutant Water Snake.
The person was precisely Yue Zhong, he had made use of the Sun Battle Armor to push his strength to the peak of Type 5 realm. When he descended suddenly, the Battle Spear in his hands penetrated the head of the Type 4 Mutant Water Snake.
As the spear went through, a powerful force erupted, blowing a large hole in the head of the snake. The Type 5 force coupled with the sharp Battle Spear was enough to tear through even the armor of a Type 5 Beast, not to mention this Type 4 Mutant Water Snake.
Yue Zhong immediately burrowed through the fleshy wound, wielding his Battle Spear to tear the Type 4 Mutant Water Snake from within.
The mighty beast roared out in pain and rage, thrashing where it was, causing large waves to spread everywhere.
A number of Mutant Water Snakes of the basic and Type 2 realm were caught in the struggles of their overlord and were flattened into meat paste.
The rest of the horde quickly dodged to one side, eyeing their king with wide eyes.
This Type 4 Mutant Water Snake was their overlord, and since it did not move, they lost their command and were thrown into confusion as well.
After a few seconds, Yue Zhong emerged from the head of the Type 4 Mutant Water Snake, his hands holding a bright Type 4 nucleus.
The Type 4 Mutant Water Snake twitched slightly and slumped into the water.
With its death, the dozens of Type 3 Mutant Water Snakes instantly surrounded Yue Zhong. They could sense danger from this man, and they ignited their innate abilities, firing black venom at him.
Yue Zhong’s eyes narrowed, and with a flash, he dashed across the surface of the water as though it was flat land, evading all the toxic spit.
When the black venom landed in the water, many of the lower-level Mutant Beasts were immediately poisoned to death, causing their bodies to float up.
Yue Zhong continued to leap from head to head, using his Battle Spear to thrust through their brains. He would then retrieve the nuclei before jumping to another.
With his enhanced Type 5 strength, he was practically invincible, flickering among the bodies of the Type 3 Mutant Water Snakes. In just a few breaths, all of them were killed by him, and he gained many nuclei as a result.
Right at this time, Greenie flapped its wings and shot down to the surface of the lake, biting down on a Type 2 Mutant Water Snake and lifted it towards the skies.
Greenie’s species, the Green-feathered Eagle was a natural predator of the Mutant Water Snake. When it was at a Type 2 Stage, it was already threatening to those Type 3 Mutant Water Snakes. Many of them felt the threat from above and quickly sought to flee.
In a few breaths, the huge horde of snakes was gone, leaving behind only the peaceful lake.
Seeing this, everyone on the city wall heaved a sigh of relief.
Yue Zhong watched the horde of Mutant Snakes disperse, then quickly heading back to the city wall, jumping on top in a few flashes.
The moment Ma Lei saw him, he got down on a single knee emotionally, “Leader!! It’s you!! That’s great!! We greet Leader!!”
“Long live Leader!!”
“We greet Leader!!”
The 200 soldiers erupted in cheers and excitement as they got down on a single knee and performed a respectful greeting.
Had Yue Zhong not appeared, the entire Vulture Valley would have fallen to those Mutant Water Snakes.
Seeing how Yue Zhong went to take on the mythical-like Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake by himself, as well as killing so many Type 3 Mutant Snakes and causing the rest to flee from terror, there was a blind idolizing in the hearts of the soldiers now.
Yue Zhong looked at these 200 soldiers and felt pleased, “You all could step forth even in times of danger, good! You’re all men!!”
He was pleased that he had such warriors who did not fear death for the sake of protecting their own homeland, those who did not give up even in the face of despair. He deeply appreciated such warriors.
“Thank you for your praise, Leader!!”
Hearing his words, all the soldiers felt a wave of emotions. They venerated him, and at this moment where their feelings were the highest, such praise from their leader would cause them to be even more moved.
He looked at all of them before frowning slightly in disappointment, “Where’s Han Qiong? How come she isn’t with you? Did she flee?”
She was someone Yue Zhong had grown to favor, possessing a resolute yet kind heart. In times of such danger, it was not strange that a lady might choose to flee. However, Yue Zhong had harbored hopes for her, and since he did not see her, he was naturally disappointed.
Ma Lei stepped forward to reveal the truth, “That’s not true, Leader! She did not run. It was Bolius who knocked her out for her own safety and brought her away. Han Qiong wanted to fight till the end together with us.”
Yue Zhong pointed to the descending Storm Battleship and said, “Ma Lei, go get Sun Lan Lan and convey my orders, everyone in the valley is to prepare to move to that city. From now on, that’s our home.”
“What!! That’s our city?!!”
“For real?! That’s our city!!”
The soldiers took a look at the floating city and their eyes flashed with delight and excitement. They could not help feeling that way knowing that they were about to reside in a powerful-looking floating fortress.
Ma Lei was naturally no exception as he replied excitedly, “Yes! Leader!!”
Chapter 644: Cloud Region!
Everyone was in a state of panic in Vulture Valley, but news of Yue Zhong’s return caused them all to be relieved.
A huge crowd of them were assigned in batches by the government to board the Storm Battleship, their hearts filled with excitement.
“This place is beautiful!!”
“Is this our new home?”
Upon stepping on the Storm Battleship, everyone was taken aback, as they took in the sights with wonder and amazement.
The Storm Battleship used to be the Imperial City of the Storm Valley after all, thus, many buildings were constructed with lavish and luxurious looks. The street layouts were extremely orderly and clean, a huge difference compared to the Vulture Valley.
With the help of the different personnel, the entire population of Vulture Valley was settled on the Storm Battleship.
Inside the cockpit, around a huge oval-shaped table, the upper echelons of Storm Valley and Vulture Valley had gathered.
Vulture Valley had more male officials, with only Han Qiong and Sun Lan Lan the female exceptions. As for Storm Valley, they were all women, and beautiful ones at that, with Luo Qing Qing and the Storm 8 Greats taking the helm.
The Storm 8 Greats was an honorable title for those in the Storm Valley. Other than the Queen and Princess, they were the next most outstanding personnel.
Although 2 had perished in the coup de grâce and war with the Dino-warriors, 2 other outstanding ladies quickly filled up the position. They were also as beautiful and had a strength of peak Type 3 Divine Warrior.
Yue Zhong’s subordinates looked over at the ladies from Storm Valley, each of their eyes filled with a heated gaze and expectant look. These women were all beautiful and had attractive charms, the men were naturally drawn in.
“Beautiful! They have such a demeanor as well!” Han Qiong and Sun Lan Lan stared at the ladies, their eyes also filled with envy. They had never seen such beauties in their lives before.
The Storm Warriors looked over at Yue Zhong’s subordinates, their gazes filled with disdain. They knew that they were outstanding and were proud of it. As for Yue Zhong’s men, none of them had reached the Type 3 Divine Warrior stage, and in this world where the strong ruled the weak, and power was everything, they naturally looked down on them.
Yue Zhong asked Luo Qing Qing solemnly, “Today, we’re gathered here to discuss our next move, and where to go. Luo Qing Qing, what plans does your Storm Valley have?”
The Storm Battleship could not remain flying all the time, the energy consumption was an atrocious figure. The land was where humans belonged, and even though Yue Zhong was still unclear about this world, he needed a place to set his foot and establish his faction.
Luo Qing Qing shot Yue Zhong a strange look, “Green Region is no longer suitable for us to reside in. Based on what I know, the Stegosaurus only has 4 Battalions. Since one had been destroyed, they would definitely come for us!”
Everyone from the Storm Valley also looked to Yue Zhong with strange gazes. They had heard from Han Zi Xuan’s mouth, that this man in front of them had destroyed the natural dam of Green River, causing a flood to pour into the entire Green region, and he managed to defeat the seemingly-invincible Dino-army. At the same time, he was capable of summoning multiple Mutant Beasts, including a Type 5 one.
Just based on the strength of his tamed beasts which surpassed that of Storm Valley, they could not help but be interested.
Luo Qing Qing continued, “Even if they’re impeded by the water now, with their strength, if they’re resolute enough, the Green Region will still end up in their hands. However, because of the flood, it would take the Stegosaurus King about 3 to 5 years to gain full control. Within this period of time, the Stegosaurus Army would definitely not step foot into Green Region. They would still send Mid-Grade Dino-Generals to hunt us, after all, we destroyed their battalion. To them, it is a huge disgrace. Furthermore, the Mid-Grade Dino-Generals are too strong, we aren’t their match. The only thing we can do now is to evacuate and expand in Cloud Region.”
Yue Zhong nodded slightly, he had experienced for himself the terror of a Mid-Grade Dino-General. It was not something he could handle right now. Previously, he had relied on the terrain and his Mutant Beasts’ abilities, to obtain a victory.
If they were sent as assassins, then before Yue Zhong could even have time to summon Mount Tai, he would be killed instantly.
In order to defeat just one part of their forces, Yue Zhong had been forced to reveal many of his trump cards. Those intelligent Dino-people would definitely think of ways to deal with him.
The next time, he might have to face an entire squad of well-prepared Mid-Grade Dino-Generals.
Mount Tai might have monstrous strength, but its weakness was very obvious. It had only a single style of attack, its range within a few hundred meters. There was no innate ability, and its movement speed was slow as well.
As long as 10 Type 5 Divine Warriors rode on Pterosaurs and used their abilities or powerful long-range weapons, they could easily deal with Mount Tai. Of course, the requirement was for Mount Tai to be out of a water body. Otherwise, it could easily dive into the waters, and the Dino-warriors would be helpless.
Yue Zhong continued to ask, “What’s the situation over at Cloud Region? Is there anywhere suitable for us to expand?”
Yue Zhong had swallowed his fair share of factions, building up a decent-sized power. However, it was far from the Storm Valley’s intelligence network.
Luo Qing Qing replied softly, “Cloud Region is the last front of the 12 Northern Regions. There are also many prehistoric technologies there. Even Mid-Grade Dino-Generals would not dare to enter alone. The Cloud Region has been against the Triceratops Kingdom for many years, even though it has always been at a disadvantage, it has not been destroyed yet.”
Yue Zhong revealed a look of interest, “They can hold their own against the Dino Kingdom? Seems like they’re pretty strong! Our next destination should be there then!”
Yue Zhong knew just how terrifying the Dino-people of this world was. Every single Dino-Kingdom was sure to have a few peak-level existences. The fact that the people of Cloud Region could stand their ground, it meant that their weapons were definitely powerful because the physique of the humans could not compare to the dino-people.
Luo Qing Qing replied, “Yue Zhong, before we head there, I hope that you can make a trip to Gray Mountain first! Our allies, the Winged Race, is there. It was due to their help that we could maintain our guard at the Cracked Tooth Gorge for so long. I hope to invite them along.”
Yue Zhong asked, “How many people are there in the Winged Race?”
Luo Qing Qing replied, “30,000! Their resources can be provided by our Storm Valley.”
Yue Zhong fixed his gaze on her, “There has to be a toll on them. The energy consumption of the Storm Battleship is large; if they want to board this ship, they need to pay a toll. I will not let take them along for free.”
Luo Qing Qing sunk into silence upon hearing those words. She was clear that the operation of the Storm Battleship required large amounts of nuclei. They could not provide it at all. Yue Zhong’s request for a toll was extremely reasonable. However, after so many battles, they had expended most of what they had, and could not fork out much.
Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed as he continued, “Luo Qing Qing, I know that your Storm Valley doesn’t have many nuclei right now. I hope that you can grant Han Zi Xuan to me, and allow her to work for me as my subordinate. I can waive the toll for the Winged Race.”
Han Zi Xuan was someone Yue Zhong admired and respected for her strength and values. Even in times of despair, she did not abandon him and was loyal throughout, even if it was on Luo Qing Qing’s orders. Such a person would definitely aid Yue Zhong if she joined him.
Hearing his request, Han Zi Xuan turned pale, her expression one of bewilderment.
Every subordinate of the Storm Valley also turned to look at Han Zi Xuan with strange looks.
Luo Qing Qing frowned, her gaze on Yue Zhong turning cold, “Yue Zhong, I’ve told you this, I will definitely not exchange my subordinates for anything. They are all independent people, and not goods to be exchanged!”
Yue Zhong did not get angry, instead, chuckling, “Then please pay the toll to for the Winged Race to join us on the journey, 3 Type 4 Nuclei or 300 Type 3 Nuclei. You know the energy requirements of the Battleship. It’s not an unreasonable amount. As long as you can fork out, on account of our alliance, I can take them along. Remember, they are your Storm Valley’s friends, not mine, Yue Zhong’s, friends!”
Luo Qing Qing frowned and continued staring, her head filled with countless thoughts. 3 Type 4 Nuclei or 300 Type 3 Nuclei, these were not small numbers. Even if they all submitted their current stash, it might not be enough.
“There’s no need to quarrel!” At this time, Han Zi Xuan stood up, her pupils narrowing as she stared at Yue Zhong, “Yue Zhong, I’m willing to be your slave and work for you! Please waive the fees for our friends of the Winged Race to board!”
Luo Qing Qing stared at Han Zi Xuan and exclaimed, “Zi Xuan!!”
Chapter 645: The Winged Race!
“Your Majesty! Let your subject please refer to you once more as Your Majesty!” Han Zi Xuan came to her knees in front of Luo Qing Qing as she kowtowed, “Becoming Yue Zhong’s slave, is your subject’s own volition! From today on, Zi Xuan is Leader Yue Zhong’s subordinate, and I can’t serve Your Majesty anymore! I’m sorry!!”
After that, she lifted her head to stare at Luo Qing Qing, her beautiful eyes filled with tears. Her expression was resolute though, “Having received Your Majesty’s care all these years has been Zi Xuan’s honor. Serving Your Majesty has been Zi Xuan’s fortune. Your Majesty, the Winged Race is our most trusted ally and friend, we cannot abandon them for the sake of myself! For the future of Storm Valley, we need their continued support. For this, I, Zi Xuan, am not worthy of destroying this friendship between our two races!”
Luo Qing Qing stared at the crying Han Zi Xuan, her heart stirring, and her lips trembling. Yet, she remained silent.
The Storm Valley already owed Yue Zhong too much. Even if he wanted Han Zi Xuan, no matter how dissatisfied she felt, his request was not too much. After all, operating the Storm Battleship really required many nuclei.
Han Zi Xuan kowtowed thrice before standing to look at Yue Zhong, “Yue Zhong, from now on, I’m your slave. You can do anything you want of me, but you must promise me, to help the Winged Race and waive their toll!”
Yue Zhong stared back at her and smiled, “Sure! That’s definitely not a problem! However, I want your loyalty, that’s the trait I value about you, your righteousness and loyalty. As long as you are loyal, I can waive the toll.”
She wiped off the tears and replied, “As long as you honor the agreement, I will swear my loyalty.”
Yue Zhong chuckled, “Deal!”
After ascertaining the next step, both sides discussed a few more issues before calling for an end to the meeting.
“Excuse me, you must be the younger sister of Phineas of the original Storm 8 Great, Phoenina.”
As everyone was about to leave, Yue Zhong called out to a young lady of about 15 to 16, her golden hair tied up in a long ponytail, her figure explosive.
Phoenina stared at Yue Zhong coldly, “That’s right! I am Phoenina, Sir Yue Zhong, what’s the matter?”
Since he had used such a method to obtain Han Zi Xuan, she was filled with disgust towards him.
“I know you possess the ability to make equipment out of Mutant Beast materials.”
Her eyes flashed with hate, “It must be that bitch Liu Mei’er who told you!”
Liu Mei’er’s betrayal was made known to everyone in the Storm Valley, causing everyone to hate her.
“I hope that you can help me craft some equipment!”
She coldly refused, “I reject!
Yue Zhong laughed lightly, and with a flip of his hands, a huge Type 5 Mutant Beast scale appeared in them.
Phoenina took one look at the scale and sucked in a deep breath, grabbing the scale over to take a good look, her eyes burning with a passion as she exclaimed, “This is a Type 5 Mutant Beast scale!!!”
Phoenina was the equipment craftsman of the Storm Valley. After her sister Phinea’s death, she had accepted the title of Storm 8 Greats, and became the 1st Equipment Craftsman. She had produced decent equipment from Type 4 Mutant Beast parts before. However, she had yet to work with a Type 5 material. To her, it was a dream that she could not reach, and to be able to use it was a dream come true.
Yue Zhong chuckled, “That’s right! I hope that you can create 50 sets of armor out of these Type 5 scales. As compensation, I can pay you 10 Type 3 Mutant Beast nuclei.”
Phoenina continued to hold the Type 5 Scale tightly, almost shouting, “No! No!! I can create 50 sets for you. But you must give me another huge scale! You have killed a Type 5 Mutant Beast after all. There are so many of them, it’s just a small piece to you. There’s no loss giving one to me!”
Yue Zhong’s eyes twinkled as he laughed, “No way! Phoenina, you also know the preciousness of the Type 5 Mutant Beast hide. It is definitely a valuable life-protecting treasure! Such a piece can easily create 3 sets of armor! If you want one, then it’s definitely not enough to help me create 50!”
The higher the grade of the Mutant Beast hide, the more precious, and the stronger the life-saving qualities. Yue Zhong’s Type 4 Mutant Beast hide had saved him countless times.
Phoenina grabbed the scale tightly and positively screamed, “I know! I will help you create more until you’re satisfied! Is that fine now?!”
Yue Zhong chuckled, “Fine, deal!”
Yue Zhong took out the Type 5 Mutant Beast Scale in a bid to attract Phoenina, luring her to work for him. He had a huge stash of Type 5 Mutant Beast parts, yet there was not a single person who could work on them under him.
Phoenina hugged the Type 5 Mutant Beast scale and dashed off, intending to make use of the scale to manufacture a few decent pieces of armor.
Gray Mountain was a steep area near the Cracked Tooth Gorge, its side as smooth as a blade. There was no foothold, and ordinary people would never be able to scale this mountain.
At the center of the mountain, there was a large cave, guarded and patrolled by numerous Winged people wielding spears and bows on their backs. From time to time, other Winged people would fly into the cave with hunted prey.
“Is this where the Winged Race lives? Interesting!”
Yue Zhong was at the foot of the mountain, looking at the huge cave with Winged people flying in and out, a look of excitement and curiosity flashing across his eyes. It was the first time he had witnessed such a way of life.
Luo Qing Qing eyed Yue Zhong and frowned, “Yue Zhong, remember the points I told you to take note, do not antagonize them.”
This time, Luo Qing Qing wanted to visit the Winged Race and persuade them to leave together with her. Yue Zhong was interested hence he tagged along.
Yue Zhong laughed, “I know!”
Yue Zhong’s party had just arrived at Gray Mountain when a number of Winged People flew down and surrounded them.
The leader was a burly man with dark skin, dressed in wolf hide. His features were handsome, and he barked, “Who are you people?”
Luo Qing Qing was filled with confidence and she stood forward and replied coolly, “I’m Storm Valley’s Luo Qing Qing, this is my ally, Yue Zhong. Today, we’re here to pay Queen Shailene a visit.”
Hearing Luo Qing Qing’s name, the face of the wolf-pelt man turned warmer, “So it was the Storm Queen, please wait a moment. We will make a report.”
A Winged person swiftly flew up towards the cave.
Yue Zhong took the opportunity to observe the 16 other Winged people. Among them, there were 10 women and 6 men.
The men had decent looks and ripped bodies, the women were beautiful and voluptuous. Behind them, they all had the distinct feature of gray wings. It was obvious that this particular race was extremely blessed in the looks department. In fact, they looked similar to the mythical angels, although angels were depicted as having white wings, while these people had gray ones.
Soon, 26 more Winged people flew out from the cave, landing with a huge box.
The handsome leader gestured, “Please!”
Yue Zhong, Luo Qing Qing, as well as Han Zi Xuan and Hai Xi from the Storm 8 Greats went into the box.
With a flap of their wings, the 26 Winged people hoisted the box up and soared towards the cave.
The entrance was about a hundred meters wide, right near it, there were numerous huge crossbows. Yue Zhong guessed that the huge Mutant Beast bone arrows that laid on those machines were at least 20m-long, and the tips smeared with poison.
With such a threat, even if aerial Type 4 Mutant Beasts wanted to attack, they would face a certain degree of risk. As for Type 5 Mutant Beasts, while they might be catastrophic existences, and did not fear the arrows, they were too large to enter the cave.
At the same time, Yue Zhong noticed hundreds of Winged people patrolling with their spears and bows.
“This is also a matriarchal society!” Yue Zhong observed carefully and discovered that there were at least 70% females among the warriors and the rest were males.
The Winged Race also had women in power, the only difference is that in the process of reproduction, the chances of males were lesser than females, thus the higher ratio of females.
Chapter 646: Winged Queen Shailene!
There was a higher ratio of female offspring, and many were outstanding experts, thus suppressing the males to be a matriarchal society.
It was precisely because of that, that they formed an alliance with the Storm Valley, both sides working together to resist the Stegosaurus Kingdom.
After passing through the cave entrance, they continued forward, and Yue Zhong saw many interesting and strange weapons along the way. At the same time, he discovered dark traces of blood on the weapons and even the walls on either side. It was apparent that there had been an intense battle in the past.
After passing through the cave, the light did not diminish, instead, there was a radiance emitting from the walls of the inner parts of the mountain, illuminating the entire place brightly.
Yue Zhong stared in wonder, “This is amazing! How did they do it?”
Luo Qing Qing spoke, “The glowing moss is a treasure of the Winged Race. Borrowing the light from these miraculous things, all Winged Race areas are always basked in light.”
Yue Zhong took the beautiful sight in while muttering to himself, “Glowing moss!!”
To him, the glowing moss was a valuable treasure.
Humans suffered limitations in sight during the night and were vulnerable to other races and species. On Earth, Yue Zhong had often taken the advantage of his class specialty to defeat his enemies in the night. However, he was also worried about his enemies doing the same to his army.
If he could utilize the moss properly, then his troops would be able to exhibit a terrifying might during night combat.
After passing heavy security and going through another tunnel, they finally arrived at a huge city.
There seemed to be no end to the sides, with countless honeycomb structures. Many Winged people were flying in and out of these buildings.
On the streets, a number of children were playing games or undergoing training under the guidance of their parents.
At the central region, there was a single honeycomb that reached the top of the cavern city, entirely in white, and it gave off a majestic feel.
Yue Zhong and the rest of the party were brought up towards this building.
Yue Zhong’s eyesight was sharp, and he noticed from observing that these Winged people were backward in terms of technology and knowledge, most of them covered only in beast pelt. Some of them only had a small layer around their lower private areas, and the women would even let their chests be exposed. Yet no one seemed particularly surprised, or embarrassed. There were also a few that were stark naked as they went about their activities.
Furthermore, their outlook on life was evidently different from humans. Yue Zhong just had to take a casual look and noticed that there were many couples engaged in copulation in public. Some groups of females would even surround a male for a good time without any reservations.
The huge box soon came to a rest at the peak of the white honeycomb structure.
Yue Zhong’s party took a single step out and they were immediately greeted by an extremely beautiful woman with long gold locks, dressed in white satin. She was flanked by 4 other Winged female warriors wearing Storm Armor.
The golden-haired lady broke into a smile as she looked at Luo Qing Qing, “Queen Luo Qing Qing, you’ve come!! Her Majesty has instructed for me to receive you, please come with me!”
Luo Qing Qing stared in confusion before she suddenly recognized her, “Winnie?! Have you broken through already?”
“Queen Luo Qing Qing, you’re truly capable, indeed, I’ve broken through a month ago, and am a Type 4 Divine Warrior now,” Winnie responded with a slightly proud tone. A Type 4 Divine Warrior was an existence not to be underestimated, even among the Winged Race, they were rare and a few.
Winnie shot Yue Zhong a look, and could not help but stick out her tongue to lick her lips sensually, “Is this your King? He seems pretty strong!”
Since the Winged Race had more females than males and were a matriarchal society, the women would usually make advances on the men. Although Yue Zhong was not exceptionally good-looking, however, through the countless battles, he had grown to possess a unique aura that was attractive.
Seeing Winnie’s undisguised greed, Luo Qing Qing was slightly uncomfortable, frowning as she replied, “Winnie, this is Yue Zhong, an important ally, and friend, and not my King. Take me to see Queen Shailene.”
“Yes! Please follow me!”
She withdrew her gaze from Yue Zhong’s body reluctantly, before leading the party deeper into the palace.
Under her lead, they quickly came to a vast hall.
“Luo Qing Qing, the last time I saw you was about… 3 years ago? Why don’t you come over more often?”
The party had just entered the place when another absolute beauty appeared, her jade-like skin glowing, her hair golden, and she was wearing a Storm Battle Armor. If it wasn’t for her wings being gray instead of white, she would look like the epitome of angels. She immediately hugged Luo Qing Qing and chuckled amicably.
Behind her, there were 8 other female warriors with the Storm Battle Armor, 2 other beauties in white silk, and 2 young male warriors with good looks and muscular bodies.
Seeing how close the woman was with Luo Qing Qing, the faces of the 2 women in silk sunk. As for the 2 men, their eyes brightened upon seeing Luo Qing Qing. In terms of appearance and aura, Luo Qing Qing surpassed the top beauties of the Winged Race ever so slightly.
Luo Qing Qing had an apologetic smile as she explained, “My apologies, Shailene, there have been too many problems over at Storm Valley. The Sun Alliance and Pterosaur Mountain had been eyeing us for some time, I couldn’t pull out the time to come over for leisure.”
“Forget it! I know it’s hard for you. I forgive you.” Shailene chuckled in joy, extracting herself from the hug.
One of the mature ladies in white silk had blue hair, her face sullen as she spoke solemnly, “Your Majesty, you are now representing our Winged Race, please mind yourself.”
Shailene smiled bitterly, before turning around to return to her throne, before assuming a wooden expression and eyed Yue Zhong’s group silently.
After waiting for Luo Qing Qing and the rest to be seated, the blue-haired lady then spoke with a severe expression, “Storm Queen, what brings you here to our Winged Race palace?”
Luo Qing Qing returned the expression, “Elder Dorothy, this time, I’ve come hoping for the Winged Race to come with us to leave Green Region. The Stegosaurus Kingdom had already set their sights on our Green Region, and with our strength, there’s no way of defending against their advances. If we make our way to Cloud Region, we have a chance.”
The 2 older women beside Shailene were called Dorothy and Doreen, they were the 2 Elders of the Winged Race. Both of them had the strength of a peak-Type 4 Divine Warrior. They were just a few steps away from the Type 5 Realm. They had considerable authority within the Winged Race, even the Queen Shailene had to listen to them.
After hearing Luo Qing Qing’s words, the faces of all the Winged people present changed.
One of the males suddenly laughed coldly, “Leave Green Region? Impossible. Our Winged Race had toiled for countless years, now that we finally have our own sacred grounds in this mountain, yet, you want to waltz in here and ask us to leave with you with a single sentence? Our Winged Race is not at your beck and call, Luo Qing Qing.”
The other male continued in a sharp tone, “Yade is right! The biggest mistake of our Winged Race was to ally with your Storm Valley. You useless human trash, you couldn’t even defend Cracked Tooth Gorge without the help of our Winged Race. Yet, what have you done? You actually blew up the gorge, allowing the Stegosaurus Kingdom to invade Green Region! Damn it! Because of you, our Winged Race has now become their target as well. We’ve lost 400 of our brothers and sisters. You dare come in here, hoping for our Winged Race to follow you out of Green Region? What do you see us as? Your subordinates or your toys?!”
When Luo Qing Qing heard their words, her expression turned ugly and she clenched her fists, looking towards Dorothy and Doreen.
Instead, the 2 of them stared back at Luo Qing Qing quietly, not saying anything, causing Luo Qing Qing’s heart to turn cold.
With their position, without their consent or expressed intention, the 2 male Winged warriors would definitely not have shot their mouths like that. Evidently, there were many among the Winged Race that was already dissatisfied with the alliance with the Storm Valley
Luo Qing Qing stood up with an impassive face, “Since this is the case, I have nothing better to say. Our Storm Valley will leave the Green Region by ourselves. Farewell!”
Dorothy suddenly spoke up, “Wait! Storm Queen, although we can’t leave, we are still good friends. We hope that you can stay and allow us to host you well.”
Shailene also looked at her with an apologetic look, “Storm Queen, stay on! Let us host you!”
Luo Qing Qing had intended to leave immediately. However, upon seeing Shailene’s look, her heart could not help but soften. They had shared many years of friendship, while the rejection of Luo Qing Qing’s proposal was a collective decision, while Shailene was merely a figurehead. The power she held could not compare with the 2 Elders. Luo Qing Qing did not want to make things difficult for her as well.
Chapter 647: Courtship Offering!
Inside a secret room, Dorothy, Doreen, and the 2 handsome Winged men were seated, the atmosphere heavy and tense.
Doreen was frowning, a look of hesitation on her face, “Are we really doing this? The Storm Valley is our ally after all!”
One of the males had a resolute look, “Elder Doreen. We have to do this. We know clearly the might of the Stegosaurus. Any Mid-Grade Dino-General is not an existence we can handle. Now that the Cracked Tooth Gorge is destroyed, we don’t have any defenses left. We can only plead with their kingdom for survival!”
The other male also spoke up with an insufferable amount of arrogance, “Wayne is right! If we go against the Stegosaurus Kingdom, we’re just courting death. Although the Green Region is submerged with water now, they would never let off anyone involved with their losses. Especially since the Storm Valley is one of 3 main factions, they will be their target for vengeance. If we send them the Storm Queen Luo Qing Qing, they will be appeased, and let us off.”
Wayne spoke softly, “Although it would mean that we will become under the banner of the Stegosaurus Kingdom and lose our independence, it will avert the wipeout of our clan. Esteemed Elders, this is our only choice. If we hesitate any further, once the experts of the Stegosaurus Kingdom arrive, our entire Winged Race will be their targets as well!”
The Winged Race knew the might of the Stegosaurus Kingdom. They were just a small species of this world, and the last Winged Queen had merely been at the initial-Type 5 Divine Warrior stage, the only one of the entire Winged Race. However, even this Winged Queen had perished at the hands of a Mid-Grade Dino-General in a battle some time ago, highlighting the difference in strength between them and the Dino-people.
The current Queen Shailene had only ruled for 3 years. Although she had the exalted blood of the previous Queen, her age was still young, and her power was still at the initial Type 4 Divine Warrior realm. Among the Winged Race, she barely had any authority.
With the pressure of the Stegosaurus Kingdom weighing on them, the 2 Elders were starting to feel nervous. Their might could not compare to the Stegosaurus Kingdom. If they did not navigate properly, they would easily be wiped out.
In this Third World, the Dino-people were the overlords of this world. They had the strongest advantage and were also the most savage people. There were many species that had been wiped out by them, and they were widely feared.
Doreen looked towards Dorothy, “What do you think, Dorothy?”
Dorothy was silent for a long while, her eyes flashing with a complicated gaze, before she heaved a long sigh, “For the sake of our Winged Race, we can only sacrifice the Storm Queen.”
Doreen asked after a while, “Are we going to tell Her Majesty?”
Dorothy shook her head with a cold look, “Her Majesty values her relationships. If she knows we’re plotting against her friend, she would not agree. However, she is not stupid. When we go under the banner of the Stegosaurus Kingdom, she will understand our difficulties. Wayne, Lars, go make your preparations!”
“Understood!” The 2 handsome Winged men responded and left.
At night, within the honeycomb city, the glowing moss near the top of the enormous cavern was starting to dim. However, there were a few other plants that were radiating light as well, illuminating the city.
At a huge field, there was a bonfire, with numerous good-looking Winged people dancing around with festive clothes.
Silk existed in this world as well, however, only humans were able to produce beautiful silk by rearing some Mutant Bugs. The amount produced was not a lot, and even in the Winged Race, only a few ladies of higher caste could afford them. These were obtained through exchange with the Storm Valley in the past.
There was also a circle of tables, where the guests of the Winged Race would be seated.
Yue Zhong was currently seated at one of the table, drinking juice while enjoying the food provided by the Winged Race.
This time, the feast was of an important level, the juice was produced from various Mutant Plants and fruits that could boost the physique of humans. The culinary habits of the Winged Race were not particularly high, they only knew how to barbecue the meat roughly.However, the ingredients were collected from delicious Type 3 Mutant Beast meat. Furthermore, they were using spices and other seasonings that Yue Zhong had never seen or tasted before, causing the meat to taste even better.
On a podium, Shailene and Luo Qing Qing sat together, as the most important people of the honeycomb city.
Shailene looked at Yue Zhong curiously, “Sis, is that Yue Zhong your consort King? Based on your Storm Valley rules, you should have already reached the age to choose your King right? In fact, I’ve counted, today should be the day you choose a King. You actually brought him here, he should either be your King or a beloved concubine, yea? He doesn’t look particularly handsome though, why him?”
Shailene and Luo Qing Qin were the best of friends, and since Luo Qing Qing was older than Shailene, hence, when no one was around, Shailene would call Luo Qing Qing ‘Sis’. At the same time, since their factions were allies, Shailene knew the ritual of choosing a King.
Luo Qing Qing shot Yue Zhong a look, her own gaze filled with complicated emotions as she shook her head, “He’s not my King, nor concubine. He’s an ally, this time, thanks to him, our Storm Valley managed to survive.”
Shailene asked with curiosity, “Oh? What’s going on? Mind telling me?”
Just as Luo Qing Qing was about to say something, a bout of strong drum beats began to resound, as all the beautiful female dancers left the stage.
40 muscular men wielding spears and bows entered the scene. All of them had rippling muscles, their bodies taut, in combination with their good looks, they had attracted the excited screams and cheers of many women.
Shailene looked at the good-looking Winged men entering the parade square and became excited, “It’s starting! Sis, our Winged Race’s Courtship Offering!!! Look, these are all our strongest and handsome warriors. They are all much more good-looking than Yue Zhong! Wayne, Lars, do your best!”
Of the 40 males, Wayne and Lars were pretty outstanding in their demeanor.
Luo Qing Qing glanced at the excited Shailene and chuckled mildly.
The Courtship Offering was a sacred ritual of the Winged Race, in this ritual, the most outstanding males of the Winged Race would step forward to perform in front of the Queen, competing in battles to narrow down to the 10 most excellent warriors.
Of these 10 outstanding males, they had the chance to choose any females above the age of 25 of their liking, other than the Queen and Elders, to be their partners for one night.
At the same time, their performance would rile up the attention and adoration of countless women.
On top of that, in the past, there was usually a chance to become the King or concubine of the Winged Queen. Therefore, many males would strive to take part and do their best.
Of the Courtship Offering, there were 3 components to the competition, namely, close combat, archery and spear combat.
The Winged Race had a different sense of close combat compared to humans. Due to their wings, they could fly in the sky and engaged in a melee. It was a test of their control as well as combat.
In the skies, 2 gray figures clashed, when all of a sudden, they merged together and crashed towards the ground.
With a loud explosion, and after the dust dispersed, Wayne was standing on top of another Winged warrior.
The Winged warrior spoke with difficulty, “I admit defeat!”
“Wayne!! I love you!!”
Wayne took his leg away from the other Winged warrior, raising his hands up high amidst an explosion of cheers. He had revealed a suppressing strength, successfully defeating the other contestants. Even Lars had chosen to admit defeat. He was not his match.
As the sounds continued to ring out, Wayne walked over to Yue Zhong, his eyes filled with disdain as he challenged, “Yue Zhong, I heard that among the humans, you men are all weak trash, with no balls, hiding behind women. Do you dare compete against me?”
Wayne’s voice was not soft, and a number of condescending, curious and even excited gazes fell upon Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong shot Wayne a look, entering the stage, “You have successfully pissed me off, useless trash. I accept your challenge.”
Shailene squealed in delight, “He’s challenging Wayne!! This time, he’s in trouble!!”
Chapter 648: One-Move Victory!
“Wayne, do your best!!”
“Stuff his head into his arse!!”
Seeing Yue Zhong enter the stage, the spectators erupted in excited cheers and hollers. None of them thought that Yue Zhong could succeed as he was a human. Hence, they all shouted their support for the hero of their hearts, Wayne.
Wayne’s eyes flashed with a savage glint, “I had originally intended to teach you a lesson. Now, you have infuriated me. Yue Zhong! I will take your right arm and force it so far up your arse! In close-quarter combat, both parties have to be responsible for their own life and death! If you’re afraid, get down on your knees and lick my shoes, I will let you off and spare your life!!”
Wayne was the top male warrior of the Winged Race, having never suffered any setback during his growth. With the exception of the Queen and some other upper-class women, as long as he hooked his finger, any other female would gladly go to bed with him. He would also enjoy their adoration and respect. He looked down on the weaker humans, and thus, since he was challenged by an ‘ant’ he despised, he was filled with rage.
Yue Zhong eyed him and laughed coldly, “You spout too much bullshit! Get started, fool!”
Shailene called out excitedly on the podium, “Wayne! Go all out! Teach this arrogant fellow a lesson!!”
Since she had been queen for too short a time, and she was still young, there was still a little childish temperament to her. Because of that, although she had the strength of a Type 4 Divine Warrior, her authority had not yet exceeded the 2 Elders.
When Luo Qing Qing saw this, a strange glint flashed across her eyes as the corners of her mouth lifted in a strange smile.
Wayne got down on a single knee and declared to Shailene, “Understood! Glorious Queen, I will fulfill your wish!”
“Now, you can regret your foolishness and arrogance!!”
Wayne stood up, turned around, his eyes flashing fiercely. With a tap of his foot, 6 clones suddenly shot towards Yue Zhong.
“6 Shadow Clones! He can already conjure up 6 of them! Seems like his strength had reached the peak of Type 3, nearing the Type 4 realm!”
“Outstanding! He’s only 25 this year, and yet, his strength has reached such a stage! Seems like we might soon have a powerful Type 4 King!”
Upon seeing the 6 Shadow Clones, many Winged people had expressions of shock, as they began to discuss excitedly.
To the Winged Race, Type 4 experts were considered the pinnacle. There were only 5 of them in the entire race, thus, having one more Type 4 Divine Warrior meant that they would have an additional powerhouse.
Many of the pretty young ladies stared wide-eyed at Wayne, their eyes filled with adoration. With such a handsome and powerful man, it was impossible to not be attracted.
The 6 Shadow Clones pounced towards Yue Zhong, as long as he made the wrong judgment, Wayne would be able to grab hold of him and toss him to the ground. Even among most human Type 4 Divine Warriors, it would be hard to block against such a move.
Each of the clones was fixed on one of Yue Zhong’s vital areas, namely his waist, heart, throat, brain and other spots. The spectators were filled with glee, excitement and even bloodlust, hoping to see Yue Zhong heavily injured, if not dead.
Yue Zhong stared at them coldly, before sending out a casual slap towards one of the clones.
At the moment, all 6 clones disintegrated, while Wayne was sent soaring towards a wall in a flash, looking like a broken doll.
The handsome mug of his was contorted due to Yue Zhong’s strike, his teeth all knocked out, as blood gushed out in large amounts.
Seeing this, everyone was caught slack-jawed. They had never expected that their top male warrior to be defeated in a single move by this human without being able to defend himself.
Only Luo Qing Qing and the rest from Storm Valley who knew his strength did not falter. They had long since anticipated such an outcome.
Yue Zhong looked at Wayne who was stuck in the wall, laughing coldly as he shot towards him, “Still not dead? Your constitution is pretty decent, eh?”
Immediately, a dozen Winged Warriors came gathering in front of Wayne, protecting him as they raised their spears at Yue Zhong.
One of them barked out, “Yue Zhong, what do you think you’re doing?!”
Yue Zhong declared in a loud and self-justified manner, “Of course it is to end his life! It is a combat between the two of us! In this battle, as long as he doesn’t admit defeat, he still intends to battle! I’m going to end this, there’s not a single rule I’ve broken! Instead, you guys are trying to flout the rules eh? So the Winged Race is such a lawless place, is it?! You still don’t want to back off?”
Rebuked by Yue Zhong, the rest of warriors had ugly expressions. In the Courtship Offering ritual, it was true that there would be casualties during the competition. As long as one party did not acknowledge defeat, the spectators could not intervene no matter what. However, Wayne had been slapped silly by Yue Zhong, his mind apparently out of focus. He was not in the right state to admit defeat. If Yue Zhong were to go over now, Wayne would surely die.
Right at this moment, Shailene’s voice rang out, “All of you, stand down! Our Winged Race is not a clan that is not trustworthy! We do not flout our traditions and rules!”
“Yes! Your Majesty!”
Hearing Shailene’s words, the warriors bowed and quickly stepped aside.
Shailene was currently emitting the bearing of a ruler, well beyond her years, as she looked at Yue Zhong, “Yue Zhong, our Winged Race will stick to our words. As long as Wayne does not admit defeat, you do have the right to kill him. However, I hope that you can let him off. I do not wish for our Winged Race and the humans to become enemies.”
Shailene might be naive and childish at times, however, she was after all raised to be the future Queen. At this current moment, she truly did have the bearing of royalty.
Yue Zhong stopped and shot Shailene a look of appreciation, “Fine, then who is the winner here?”
Shailene’s mouth curled, as she gazed back at him with a hint of a smile, “Of course, it’s you!”
Yue Zhong then stood at the center of the stage and shot the male warriors condescending looks, “Good! I’ve won this round! Who else dares to take me on!”
The male warriors all looked at him, their eyes flashing with fear. No one had the confidence to take on this human who had defeated their strongest with a single hit.
Among the female warriors, many had looks of fury as they glared at Yue Zhong. At the same time, a few beautiful ones were looking at Yue Zhong with appreciation. In this world where strength meant everything, as long as one was strong enough, there would be no lack of suitors.
“Who dares to challenge me?”
Yue Zhong continued to taunt the men as he looked down with disdain.
Many of the male warriors lowered their heads to avoid eye contact. If they were to go up and got slapped like Wayne, then after today, they would become a joke.
Yue Zhong smiled coldly and taunted once more, “Are there no brave warriors among the Winged Race?”
“I’ll challenge you!!”
Under his constant challenges, a beautiful girl with an oval-shaped face, her long golden hair tied in a ponytail, and her figure explosively sexy, came up to the stage. She stared straight at Yue Zhong, her voice ringing with anger, “I, Lai Wei, am here to challenge you!! Our Winged Race has no lack of warriors!”
Yue Zhong laughed lightly, “If I recall correctly, in the Courtship Offering ritual, females are forbidden to take part, am I right?”
In the Winged Race, the females had a higher strength than the men. Therefore, they were forbidden from taking part. Otherwise, there would not be a single man worthy to present themselves.
Just like on Earth, if there wasn’t a clear separation, then top female athletes could not compete against the top male athletes.
Lai Wei shot Yue Zhong a challenging look, “What, you’re scared? Coward!”
“You don’t even have the courage to accept another challenge, Yue Zhong?”
“You’re the coward!!”
“Lai Wei, teach this man a lesson! Although he fits my taste, he’s too arrogant!”
Among the spectators, many of the female warriors were screaming excitedly, with some even blowing wolf-whistles.
Yue Zhong flipped his hands and a Type 4 Nucleus appeared in his hand, “Of course not. I accept your challenge, however, let’s make it more interesting. If I do not defeat you in the allotted time, I’ll lose this nucleus to you. If I do defeat you, you will be my subordinate, even when I leave this honeycomb, you must come with me, and fight alongside me. How about that?”
Yue Zhong had observed this Lai Wei carefully and noticed that she had a valiant and sturdy aura, obviously the result of countless battles. He needed such talented warriors.
Lai Wei licked her lips in excitement, “No!! I want to change the conditions! If I lose, I’m yours. If you lose, you’re mine! You’ll have to stay here with me!!!”
Yue Zhong chuckled and nodded, “Fine!”
Chapter 649: Genius Lai Wei!
“Hehe! This time, you’ll definitely lose!” Lai Wei saw how easily Yue Zhong agreed to her conditions and revealed a crafty smile. She then walked to one side, looking towards a mature Winged woman, “Mama, lend me your Storm Battle Armor!”
The beautiful woman laughed lightly, and tossed the suit together with a Type 4 nucleus, before smiling coyly, “Lai Wei, I like this Yue Zhong too. Once he becomes yours, let him accompany me for 3 nights!”
Lai Wei stared back, after taking the armor, “No way! He’s someone that caught my eye. If you want to play with men, go choose some others. He’s mine!!”
Without any hesitation, Lai Wei swiftly put on the armor, standing on the stage, staring at Yue Zhong with a gaze full of battle intent, “Shall we start?”
Yue Zhong laughed lightly, “Bring it on!”
The moment his words landed, Lai Wei’s eyes flashed with a glint. The nucleus behind the armor radiated brightly, and with a tap of her foot, 16 Shadow Clones dashed towards him.
“Type 4 Peak, what a fast speed, she’s already a Type 4 Divine Warrior!”
Yue Zhong caught sight of the 16 Shadow Clones and was full of shock. His heart turned cold and he became serious, withdrawing his contempt.
Lai Wei was a genius combateer among the Winged Race, although her age was young, she had been through countless battles, and had reached the initial Type 4 Divine Warrior stage. With the enhancement of the Storm Battle Armor, she was even able to push herself to the peak of Type 4.
Her speed was extremely quick, every single shadow clone looking extremely life-like. It surpassed what Wayne was capable of. Yue Zhong had been able to discern the authenticity behind Wayne’s technique but was unable to do so for Lai Wei’s.
His pupils narrowed, and with a tap, he shot backward like an arrow, activating his Gravity Manipulation, as a powerful gravitational force spread outward.
He had just stepped back when he suddenly felt an intense sense of danger from above. A powerful hurricane came crashing down towards his head.
Without lifting his head, he twisted his body slightly and channeled his Dark Dou Qi. With that tight space he had, he sent out a powerful fist towards the direction of the danger.
Both fists connected, and Yue Zhong who was less prepared was sent flying backward.
He twisted his body, his pupils constricting, looking up only to discover all 16 Shadow Clones flapping their wings and coming after him.
The Type 2 Gravitational Force was only enough to impede Lai Wei for barely a second. Due to the sudden change in gravity, they were caught unaware, but once they got used to it, it did not affect them much.
Yue Zhong eyed them and his gaze turned frosty before he suddenly charged towards them with a fierce killing intent.
Lai Wei’s eyes flashed with shock but threw a punch without holding back.
“This is the real one!”
Upon getting close to them, Yue Zhong finally determined one of them to be the true body. There was a wildfire behind his eyes as he allowed the punch to reach his chest.
Her peak Type 4 strength burst out, almost bursting his chest open.
With the new armor, he was wearing made from the Type 5 Mutant Beast scale, together with his Body of Steel, it negated about 60% of Lai Wei’s force, however, the remaining was enough to send his insides tumbling. He almost threw up blood, but he managed to suppress it.
“Hehe! I caught you!”
At the moment her punch landed on Yue Zhong, he opened his arms wide and grabbed her tight, as he sent a vicious knee strike towards her abdomen.
She received the blow and her eyes flashed with madness, kicking out the same way towards him.
He took a step closer and used his legs to block, causing her knee to slam into his thigh, from which a sharp pain shot through his body.
He hugged her tight and tumbled towards the ground, using his body to stick close and assault her.
Not willing to stand down, Lai Wei utilized the same fighting style and threw close punches.
Both parties were reduced to brawling together like hoodlums.
This is close-quarter combat, and not just skills or abilities. At the first instance of their clash, Yue Zhong had already determined that he was not a match for her without using some means.
Yue Zhong had been through countless combat and crawled through seas of zombie corpses and blood, his experience abundant. Lai Wei was not that far off as well, having fought her fair share of battles. She was also more talented in combat compared to Yue Zhong. Combined with the natural wings that their Winged Race possessed, it allowed their speed to be faster, and the flight ability. Utilizing the many means, they could gain an upper hand in close combat.
When the spectators watched this, they were stunned silly, who would have thought that 2 experts would actually be reduced to brawling like this.
Yue Zhong and Lai Wei’s attacks were reaching an intense level, as Lai Wei twisted constantly in a bid to escape Yue Zhong’s grip. As for Yue Zhong, he held her tightly, not allowing her to escape.
Both parties continued to rain blows, and Lai Wei was starting to throw up blood.
As for Yue Zhong, who possessed the Regeneration and Body of Steel abilities, he was like a bull that hung on. Although there was blood at the corners of his mouth as well, he was still brimming with vitality, with no trace of exhaustion.
“Damn it! Get the hell away!!”
As the battle reached a climax, Lai Wei’s eyes flashed fiercely, as the Type 4 Nucleus on her back glowed. Her strength was pushed to the Type 5 realm, and she was starting to lose her rationality from her anger, intending to defeat Yue Zhong quickly.
“No, Lai Wei!!”
“Don’t do it!! You can’t use that power!”
Seeing the bright glow of the Storm Battle Armor, many of the upper-class Winged Race had huge changes in expression, frantically calling out to stop her.
Lai Wei was currently utilizing the strongest that the armor had to offer. She would likely lose control and go on a killing spree, and the same time, after the burst of strength, the Type 4 Nucleus would also crumble into dust.
“Sorry, this strength does not belong to you!”
Yue Zhong spoke coldly, with blood near his lips, before suddenly letting go.
Lai Wei’s eyes flashed wildly and she shot up like an arrow, slashing towards his chest with her nails. At that instant, her claws slammed into his body.
‘Yue Zhong’ disintegrated, turning into dust and disappearing.
Her eyes widened in shock when suddenly, a palm came knocking at the back of her head, making her unconscious.
Although she had gained a boost in strength from the armor, she had lost her rationale, and to Yue Zhong, her current state was easier to deal with.
After knocking her out, Yue Zhong turned to Shailene and chuckled, “Beautiful Queen, this round is also my victory, no?”
Shailene looked straight back at him with a coy smile, “That’s right! It’s your win! Yue Zhong, I appreciate and admire you very much. Stay with us! I will make you my King!”
“Do reconsider, Your Majesty!”
Hearing Shailene’s words, all the Winged Race immediately had expressions of horror as they tried to persuade her otherwise.
All along, the King’s position usually belonged to the Winged Race, never a foreign race or species. To the Winged Race who valued their blood and tradition, they would never allow a human to become their King.
With Shailene’s words, many of the male Winged warriors had ugly expressions. They were the best among the best, and based on tradition, the King would have been chosen from among them. Yet now, there was a human who was going to take that position, they could not help but feel ashamed.
“Shailene, don’t mess around!”
At this time, Dorothy, Doreen and 20 other elites with Storm Armor, as well as a hundred Winged female warriors clad in beast hide came marching out.
Shailene looked at them and frowned, “Elders, what’s the meaning of this?”
Dorothy’s eyes flashed as she barked, “Your Majesty, we need to talk to the Storm Queen for the sake of our future. Please be silent.”
Being admonished by Dorothy, the atmosphere turned frosty, as Shailene gritted her teeth, her hands clenched tightly.
Doreen smiled at Luo Qing Qing, “Storm Queen, please come with us.”
Luo Qing Qing’s facial expression suddenly changed, as the fruit juice in her hands landed on the ground. She stared up in shock, “You guys actually poisoned the food?!”
Hai Xi’s face also turned, as she rushed up in front of Luo Qing Qing to protect her.
Luo Qing Qing turned to Shailene with a hurt look, “Shailene, you actually poisoned me as well?”
Shailene stared back in horror, “No!! Sis!! I did not do anything of the sort!!” She then turned to Dorothy and screamed, “Dorothy, Doreen, what’s going on?!”
Dorothy eyed Shailene and barked, “Your Majesty, keep quiet! This has to do with the survival of our Winged Race!! It is the decision that we Elders have made for our sake!”
Chapter 650: Type 4 Prehistoric Monitor Lizard!
Shailene’s face turned bad, her eyes filled with a chilly gaze, “A unanimous decision by the Elder Council? How come I wasn’t made aware of this?”
Under the gaze, the rest of the upper echelon all averted their eyes. Shailene was after all the Queen of the Winged Race. Keeping this matter from her was truly an offense.
Dorothy frowned as she chided Shailene with a tone as though rebuking a child, “Because you’re always so headstrong. The Elder Council was afraid that you might be too agitated, that’s why we kept it from you. Seems like our decision was right. Shailene, you’re still too young.”
In the eyes of Dorothy, Shailene was still a kid that had not yet grown up. Although they had chosen her to be the Queen due to her bloodline and heritage, she had basically zero authority.
Shailene stood up frostily, ordering with a majestic aura, “The decision of the Elder Council? What a joke. The Queen wasn’t even consulted in this. Is my position as Queen a joke? Elder Dorothy and Elder Doreen, I hereby command you in my position as Queen to stand down immediately, and take out the antidote right now!”
Dorothy frowned, “Your Majesty, you aren’t well. Doreen, go bring her back to rest.”
Doreen flashed and appeared right in front of Shailene, her face filled with a warm smile, “Your Majesty, come, let’s head back for a rest.”
Shailene’s eyes shimmered, as she gritted her teeth. She then turned to Luo Qing Qing helpless before apologizing in an exasperated tone, “I’m so sorry, Sis!”
Shailene only had the strength of an initial Type 4 Divine Warrior, whereas Doreen was near the peak. Furthermore, Doreen had experience under her belt, and Shailene was just not her match.
Luo Qing Qing spoke indifferently, “It’s nothing to do with you, I’ve been careless.”
She had not expected that as a Queen, Shailene could not even muster her authority. She had put too much trust in her character and was thus poisoned by her subordinates unknowingly.
Dorothy smiled, “Storm Queen, please rest assured, as long as you don’t resist, we will not hurt you.”
Luo Qing Qing retorted icily, “You guys want to hand me over to the Stegosaurus Kingdom. Shameless. To think that the Winged Race has fallen to such depths. Allying with you people had been blindness on my part.”
Luo Qing Qing was after all an outstanding leader, having seen the strange actions of Dorothy, she could immediately guess their intentions.
In truth, if the Winged Race did not want to leave, and lead a vagabond life, the only choice was to submit to the Stegosaurus Kingdom.
A look of guilt flashed past Dorothy’s eyes, in the end, she sighed, “It’s us who have let you down. However, for the sake of our future, we have to do so. Men, grab her, and keep her in the prison.”
The 20 Winged elites in Storm Armor charged towards Luo Qing Qing.
Right at this moment, a loud voice barked out, “Hold up! I have something to say!”
Everyone’s attention fell on the owner of the voice, Yue Zhong.
Dorothy eyed him coldly, “What is it?”
He chuckled, pointing towards the entrance of the cavern, drawling indifferently, “I think, you guys are in for some trouble.”
At this moment, alarms blared throughout the entire honeycomb city.
Following a loud sound, a huge explosion rang out from the caverns, as dozens of Winged people flew out, their mouths filled with blood.
At the same time, hundreds more flew out from behind them, seeming to flee pathetically.
Dorothy’s eyes flashed with shock as she screeched, “What’s going on? How can our defenses fall so easily? What’s happening?”
At the entrance of their caverns, there were plenty of defensive weapons. Even a Type 4 Mutant Beast would have to pay a huge price to try and invade. However, right now, their defensive line had been broken by some unknown force, this caused Dorothy to be shocked.
Right in front of them, a huge monitor lizard of about 10m, its entire body covered in scales came crawling in swiftly.
Yue Zhong activated his Eyes of Perception and received a flurry of information.
“Type 4 Mutant Beast: Prehistoric Monitor Lizard. It can easily scale mountain walls and possesses a tough hide. With its nimble movement and strength, as well as its innate poisonous ability, it is a formidable existence.”
After Yue Zhong’s Eyes of Perception was strengthened to the Second Order stage, as well as his physique reaching the peak of Type 4, the information he got from any Mutant Beast of Type 4 and below was a lot more comprehensive.
The Type 4 Monitor Lizard was covered with countless arrows stuck in its scale, as well as a huge bone arrow that had pierced through an area of its body. It was obviously enraged, and as it charged in, it began to crush and destroy a number of honeycomb structures.
The speed of the Monitor Lizard was extremely quick and deft, its charging speed reaching the sound barrier. In a few breaths, it had reached the center of the honeycomb city, and with every swing of its tail, it would cause a building to crumble, while the Winged warriors within would be forced to fly out.
The moment those Winged warriors flew out, they suddenly disappeared without a trace.
Seeing this, many others began to fly out from their own homes.
In just an instant, it was like a swarm of Winged people flying out of the honeycomb structures, looking like bees.
Since they were an intelligent race, while they might have some outstanding warriors, they would also have some cowards within them. A particular group made their way towards the entrance in a bid to get out of here.
To their horror, just as they reached the entrance, they suddenly disappeared in one fell swoop as well. Following that, another Type 4 Prehistoric Monitor Lizard leaped in from the entrance, entering the city.
Not long after that, yet another Type 4 Prehistoric Monitor Lizard followed suit.
Their numbers began to increase as they invaded and tore through the city. In just a few moments, there was a dozen of them.
They began to unleash carnage and slaughter everywhere they crawled. Their tails would swing into buildings, destroying them, and the moment the Winged people appeared, they would vanish mysteriously.
Even those that were flying at about a hundred meters in the skies, as long as they got near the Prehistoric Monitor Lizards, they would disappear without a trace.
Many brave Winged warriors flapped their wings, wielding their bows and firing at the Monitor Lizards. The arrows only served to bounce off the thick armors. A few stronger ones managed to land and pierce through, yet, those arrows were like toothpicks, not causing much damage.
Instead, the beasts continued to advance further towards the directions of the Winged warriors, causing them to disappear again. Such a strange sight was causing the rest to be bewildered and fearful.
Dorothy soared into the air, her face pale at the sight of hell within their homeland, “What’s going on? How did these Monitor Lizards suddenly band together to attack us?”
These Monitor Lizards were smaller than those Type 4 Diplodocus and Triceratops, and their strength might not be comparable to those large ones. However, they had fast speed, astonishing defenses, and strange means. To the Winged Race, they were practically disaster.
Dorothy’s eyesight was powerful, and she caught sight of a few Dino-warriors charging in from the entrance like ants. Her eyes flashed with despair, “Those are Dino-people!! Damn it!!! These are the troops from the Stegosaurus Kingdom!! They’ve come!!”
Yue Zhong’s heart sank upon hearing those words, “Dino-people? Shit!! We’re in a jam now!!”
Previously, Yue Zhong had managed to strike preemptively with the help of Mount Tai and Turtle. However, this cavern in the mountains was only about a few hundred meters away from the ground. If he were to summon Mount Tai, it would likely get stuck.
Hearing Dorothy’s cry of despair, many Winged people had looks of shock and fear on their faces as well. They knew the savagery their enemies were capable of. Once they killed their way over, all that awaited was death.
Lars’ eyes flashed with a strange glint as he pointed at Yue Zhong’s party, “It’s them!! Those humans must have lured the Dino-people over!! Kill them!! After that, we can present their heads to the Stegosaurus Kingdom to plead for mercy! They will spare us!!”
At Lars’ shout, many of the upper-class Winged people turned to stare at Yue Zhong’s party, their eyes filled with rage. Many of them raised their spears and let out howls of fury.
