God and Devil World - Chapter 811-820
Chapter 811: Alien Queen!
When the experts of South Origin City heard Yue Zhong’s reply, they exchanged bewildered looks, “Earth?”
Yue Zhong had already the intention to bring them to Earth, thus he did not hide it. He then spoke about all that he knew of the 2 worlds.
The humans of South Origin City were martial arts practitioner and had stronger physiques compared to the humans of Earth. If they could come under his China, and equipped with advanced weapons, Yue Zhong would gain an elite troop.
Yue Zhong got to the point, “Since South Origin City had come to this situation, I’m afraid that other places would likewise be under invasion. I hope that all the experts here can leave with me for Earth, and join my China.”
With the appearance of the aliens, Yue Zhong guessed that the rest of the planet Uros would likely be attacked by those aliens. It was a good opportunity to win them over. Once those aliens finished evolving, then the city would be overwhelmed directly, without any experts left for him to bring over.
Hearing his invitation, many experts fell silent.
Bai He Lian, the Headmaster of Clear Wind Martial School, replied in a righteous manner, “Yue Zhong, our Clear Wind Martial School people are Urotians, even if we die, we will die as Urotians. We want to fight to protect Uros. We will not leave with you.”
After she opened her mouth, Peng Liang, another of the top 5 experts, also replied softly, “Yue Zhong, this is a grave matter. Please allow us to consider.”
Pi Zhi Wen spoke, “I would like to think about it.”
The rest also started to mutter, “Yes! Let us think and consider properly.”
Yue Zhong did not push them, instead, laughing coldly in his heart, “A bunch of short-sighted fools, when the time comes, you guys will suffer.”
After discussing some other topics, everyone then left.
Yue Zhong came to a large field and began to explain the situation, and invited them to join him once more.
On the field, when the survivors heard that, their faces fell as they revealed expressions of contemplation. In the end, not many chose to follow Yue Zhong to leave Uros.
Seeing this, Yue Zhong did not force them. He shook his head inwardly as he returned to his own room.
Inside the room, Jin Xuan’er got down on her knees with her golden ponytails shaking, as she gritted her teeth and begged, “Mr. Yue Zhong, please accept me as your disciple. I want to gain strength, and eradicate those aliens, and seek vengeance for my Master.”
She had followed him all the way and saw his terrifying strength. In order to hunt those aliens, she had decided to bet it all on Yue Zhong in order to gain the strength.
Yue Zhong looked at the emotional girl and said, “I can take you in, and give you strength. However, you know my background, I will be leaving Uros soon. By that time, are you willing to leave with me?”
Jin Xuan’er’s face fell slightly. In the end, she gritted her teeth, “Mr. Yue Zhong, as long as you allow me to kill 10 of those aliens, I will follow you.”
She had a pent-up frustration, knowing that without the Type 4 Enhanced Armor, she could at most kill one or two aliens. If she could kill 10 of them, she might be able to vent the anger and sorrow.
Yue Zhong passed her a Type 4 Enhanced Battle Armor casually, “Fine! Since that’s the case, this Type 4 Enhanced Armor is yours.”
As she received it, she fell to her knees once more, kowtowing thrice, “Thank you, Master!!”
Yue Zhong continued, “Get up. Let me ask you, what are the saint lands?”
She replied, “The Saint Land is the holiest of places of experts of our planet Uros. Over there, there are countless records of martial arts and deep, profound skills. The experts there are numerous, with plenty of Type 5 and Type 6 experts. Legend has it that the Saint Lord is someone with a Type 7 Divine Warrior strength. Today, with the strength you displayed, everyone mistook you from the Saint Land.”
Yue Zhong was rocked, “Type 7 Divine Warrior!! The humans of this world could actually cultivate to that extent?! Too powerful!”
A Type 7 Divine Warrior was someone similar to Emperor Ba Long from the 3rd World. One could easily wipe out a country. Yue Zhong was not necessarily a match for such an expert.
At first, he was a little disdainful of this world with its lacking technology and thought little of their combat power. However, hearing of a Type 7 existence, he was forced to reevaluate this world.
He sighed in his heart, “Seems like this world progressed along the cultivation route. Reaching the Type 7 realm is truly formidable.”
Yue Zhong quickly threw all thoughts aside, and opened up his tablet, asking Bai Yi, “Any discoveries?”
When he entered South Origin City, he had released a large number of nano flies to scout the surroundings. After these nano flies were upgraded with the research and technology brought from America, their speed and visual ability had increased multiple folds. Combined with Bai Yi’s capabilities, they had become Yue Zhong’s eyes everywhere.
Bai Yi swiftly pulled out an image, “Master, I’ve discovered a nest of those aliens. Take a look.”
On the image, many humans were being herded into the cave by those ferocious aliens.
There was only despair in the eyes of the humans, some crying and wailing but continued to march on into the cave.
Following that, the images from the cave were also transmitted.
About 100m in, all along the walls of the caves, there was white, viscous liquid everywhere. Within the liquid, there were translucent cocoons.
When some humans were herded near those cocoons, the cocoons suddenly burst open, as a number of tentacles wrapped around those humans and pulled them in, resealing them within the cocoons.
Some were sealed while some other humans were pushed along deeper into the cave.
Other than the humans, there were even all sorts of wild beasts that had been captured and brought before the cocoons.
Through the images, Yue Zhong could see clearly that the humans and Mutant Beasts that had been swallowed into the cocoons were evolving, becoming those alien killing machines.
After passing countless tunnels, at the deepest recess, there was a massive cavern filled with aliens of even stranger shapes and compound eyes, emitting a terrifying aura.
“Are these all Type 6 aliens?! 20 of them!! Isn’t that too terrifying? Once they come out, how can humans fight them?”
Yue Zhong caught sight of various beings similar to the alien that had tried to snatch his treasures at the Gates of Hell. However, these ones were even more horrifying than the one he had encountered. Counting 20 of them, even his scalp went numb.
Just a single Type 6 alien life form would be frightening to deal with. If it were just one, it would take him some time and means to kill. If there were 2, Yue Zhong could still forcefully suppress them. He was not afraid of 3. If there were 6, he might choose to flee. However, 20 of them, if it was a frontal clash, the moment he got surrounded, he would be wiped out.
At the center of the protection of those Type 6 aliens, there was one single alien with a huge abdomen just like an ant queen. It was huge and its abdomen was over a kilometer long. This was their queen.
There were countless tubes connected to the alien queen, linked to the cocoons outside.
Many humans and Mutant Beasts were herded in front of the queen’s mouth, as it crushed them within its jaws and swallowed them.
After consuming such a huge amount of food, the abdomen of the queen burst forth with mucus, containing larvae.
The larvae started to crawl out like ants, climbing into the various cocoons. The scene was hair-raising.
At the same time, the queen suddenly shrieked out, and its huge abdomen retracted from a kilometer to 500 meters.
In the process, a terrifying alien with compound eyes and sharp pincers, covered in a black, metallic exoskeleton and a pair of wings came crawling out from behind.
“A Type 6 alien!! So the high-level aliens come directly from the alien queen. The low-level ones and big-bellied ones are spread like parasites.”
Yue Zhong could tell the newborn alien to be a Type 6 life form because he had seen similar ones guarding the queen.
He quickly came to a judgment, “No. I have to quickly annihilate this alien queen. Otherwise, it will continue to produce high-level aliens. No human would survive in South Origin City.”
He frowned as he continued to mull over, “With such a deep hiding spot, and 21 Type 6 aliens protecting it, how should I proceed?”
Chapter 812: Killing a Type 6 Alien!
As Yue Zhong pondered, his eyes suddenly gleamed. With a flip of his hand, he pulled out the Stealth Armor he obtained from Xue Shi, “That’s right! I still have this!!”
He put it on, and with a flicker, all signs of his presence disappeared from the world. He quickly flew towards the cave.
Coming to the cave, he saw another batch of Mutant Beasts being herded over, forced into the cave.
He activated his Flight ability again, soaring noiselessly into the cave, not getting near any of the aliens.
After he entered the cave, he followed the path he had set prior, finally reaching the deepest recess, coming across those 21 Type 6 aliens that were protecting the queen.
The moment Yue Zhong entered the cave, he proceeded even more carefully, his heart palpitating, as he made his way behind the head of the queen.
Just as he flew forward about a dozen meters, suddenly, one of the aliens on the ground, that had 8 limbs and looked like a spider, began to shriek out and fired strands of silk at Yue Zhong.
“Not good!! I was discovered!!”
He felt shocked and found his body bound by the strands of silk. They coiled around him rapidly, intending to constrict him to death. Even with his Second Order God-Devil Body, he still felt the pain, as though his muscles and bones were being crushed.
At that instant, Yue Zhong activated his God-Devil Flame, and the flames burned the silk into ash.
Not wasting a moment, he fired 30 balls of flame towards the various aliens all around the queen.
The spider-like alien opened its jaws, firing out a poison spit that clashed with one of the God-Devil Flames, forcefully extinguishing it.
Another scorpion-like alien opened its jaws as well, firing its own spit at the incoming God-Devil Flame, extinguishing it.
The rest of the aliens either dealt with it in similar manners or dodged them with insane speed.
As for the queen, it was unable to dodge, and could only stare at the 8 balls of flames that landed on its body.
4 of them landed on the upper torso of the queen, burning the queen as it shrieked out in agony.
As the shriek rang out, the entire upper body of the queen was turned to ash.
The other 4 God-Devil Flames landed on the abdomen, spreading out insanely and burning up the bottom part.
When the abdomen caught fire, it split apart and many half-formed alien spawn burst out amidst the viscous white liquid, as they quickly scrambled out in all directions.
At the same time, there were even over a hundred half-formed aliens that followed after. Had these half-formed aliens finished their growth, they could become Type 6 aliens, however, due to the forceful birth, they were only at the Type 5 stage right now.
When all the aliens looked at Yue Zhong, their eyes flashed with a ferocious glint and pounced towards him.
Yue Zhong fired out the God-Devil Flames and did not stay longer than necessary. With a flash of his body, he quickly made for the exit.
One of the compound-eyed aliens let out a sharp howl.
The rest of the aliens burst out with their speed, chasing after him.
“Not good, if I were to fly, my speed cannot match up to those aliens.”
After a few meters, Yue Zhong came to his senses and descended, activating his Shadow Steps as he charged outwards.
With his peak-Type 6 speed, he could reach Mach-1.5 at most by flying, but on land, he could reach Mach-2.5.
A thought then flashed through his mind, and instantly, 4 bloody radiances appeared around him. He continued to charge forward like a bolt of lightning.
The moment the aliens appeared to block, they were bashed sideways by the 4 beams.
The bloody radiance was profound and mysterious. It could become soft or hard, with huge adaptability to the situation. The most frightening thing was that it seemed to be the most suitable method of dealing with these aliens, that was almost invincible in close combat.
With his speed, in just a short span of time, he had already knocked most of the aliens aside, charging out of the nest.
However, before he could catch a breath, 3 winged-aliens with sharp pincers and black exoskeletons appeared behind it in 3 different directions, lunging for him.
The 3 aliens were aerial-type, and their maximum speed was able to reach Mach-3, even faster than Yue Zhong.
When comparing speed of the same realm, winged-type monsters were usually faster than land ones.
Yue Zhong became even more cautious. In this critical moment, he did not retreat, instead, pushing forward with his fists wrapped in his slightly-golden Dou Qi, blasting the 3 aliens consecutively.
Following 3 loud sounds, the 3 aliens burst apart, their corrosive blood splattering everywhere.
The 4 blood radiance swept forward, immediately meeting the corrosive blood and flung them outwards.
With the deaths of those 3 Type 6 winged-aliens, 3 orbs of strong life force entered Yue Zhong’s body, nourishing him.
He then turned to face another lizard-type alien, as 3 of the bloody radiance swooped forwards to slice through it.
The body of the lizard-alien trembled slightly, directly dodging the bloody radiance. It reappeared right behind Yue Zhong, slashing towards his heart.
With a thought, his Sixth Order Gravity Manipulation activated and crushed down on the alien, disorienting it.
As the lizard-alien was slowed down, Yue Zhong’s fist came pummeling its head. His strength exploded out, causing its head to burst apart.
Since Yue Zhong was currently at the peak-Type 6 realm, his God-Devil Body was at the Second Order. With his various abilities, he could take on one alien by itself. As long as he was not surrounded, he could definitely kill one in a few exchanges.
After killing that alien, Yue Zhong’s body shook and split into 4 of them, as he took the initiative to charge towards 4 separate Type 6 aliens.
The 4 bloody radiance flashed out, slicing backward, preventing the aliens chasing behind from passing through.
The 4 Yue Zhongs came in front of those tall and swift Type 6 aliens with powerful and coarse limbs.
Their eyes gleamed in response, as they slashed out with their insane speed, intending to tear Yue Zhong apart.
The claws of the aliens tore through the clones easily, only to be met with the chuckling faces, before their fists smashed into the heads of the aliens, bursting them apart.
After the Shadow Clone ability had been upgraded to the Sixth Order, it had turned into a White-silver graded ability, with added buffs. Each of his clones had his constitution, possessing immense strength. At the same time, as long as their core was not destroyed, they would not be killed.
The core of these clones were all in their heads, only by destroying his head with absolute strength could cause these clones to perish.
After killing 4 of those aliens, Yue Zhong’s clones then pounced towards the rest of the aliens.
When those 4 clones reached one Type 6 alien, countless silk strands shot out and wound around their heads, destroying their cores.
“Go to hell!!”
Yue Zhong’s true body was wrapped in God-Devil Flames, causing the air to distort from the heat as he burned all the silk up. He then turned up in front of the spider-alien and punched out at its head, causing it to explode.
After killing the Type 6 spider-alien, he saw countless others crawling along the walls of the cavern towards him.
The cocoons along the wall also exploded one by one, revealing a few half-evolved aliens that immediately pounced over.
Within some of them, there were even parasite-controlled humans and Mutant Beasts that joined the fray.
“Right on time! Burn in hell for me!!”
Yue Zhong looked at all of them, and bellowed in rage, causing the 4 bloody radiances to tear through the controlled humans and beasts, slicing through them and sucking them dry.
By now, 9 of the Type 6 aliens had been killed, and if the remaining 12 did not gather together, they would not be a match for Yue Zhong.
The 4 bloody radiances continued to soar everywhere, absorbing the blood essences of the aliens, before they split to produce another 2 more beams.
The skill was truly demonic, as the more it absorbed, the more terrifying it became. After turning into 6 beams, their speed increased further, directly slicing through the Type 5 aliens and sucking them clean. However, it was still far from penetrating the Type 6 aliens.
Right as Yue Zhong was gaining the advantage, killing another 2 more Type 6 aliens, Bai Yi’s voice sounded from the communicator, “Master, watch out, there might be a huge accident in this nest!”
Yue Zhong felt his heart turn cold as he put on the multipurpose helmet and barked out, “What happened?”
Chapter 813: Type 7 Alien!
A flurry of notifications rang out from the helmet. Within the nest of the aliens, there was a huge 3m-tall alien with long, sharp claws consuming the corpse of the alien queen.
As it ate and devoured, it started to glow with a dim black light that grew brighter steadily, obviously, it was evolving at a rapid pace.
Yue Zhong looked at the evolving Alien and his fae fell, “Shit, this bloody bastard is going to evolve! Once it hits the Type 7 realm, I won’t be a match for it.”
Without any hesitation, he waved his hands and released the Scarlet Reaper, and entered the living mech.
The moment he entered, Yue Zhong immediately activated the final trump card of the Scarlet Reaper, the Raytheon Cannon.
The Scarlet Reaper swiftly transformed into the Raytheon Cannon, and with an intense blast of light, it fired a terrifying beam towards the nest.
Under that powerful beam of destruction, all the aliens within the nest, be it Type 5 or Type 6, were all turned into ash.
The entire cave started to crumble and collapse, as debris fell on the half-formed aliens, crushing them underneath.
With the deaths of the aliens, a huge amount of life force entered Yue Zhong’s body, pushing his state up as he sensed his body improving yet another level. However, it was still lacking that step to reach the Type 7 realm.
After the Scarlet Reaper fired the Raytheon Cannon, the Type 6 Nucleus in its chest cracked and crumbled into dust.
Yue Zhong felt his heart ache at the sight of that, “Damn!! That was a Type 6 Nucleus wasted.”
A single nucleus was extremely precious. Yue Zhong had to scavenge the entire Capital of the Cloud Region in the 3rd World and the Xue Luo Forts just to comb out no more than 10 of them. Now that he had lost one, he was naturally agonizing over it.
He suppressed the feeling of pity and asked Bai Yi, “Bai Yi, is that alien dead?”
She swifty replied, “This attack of yours was strong, and wiped out the nanoflies within. I have no way of ascertaining the situation. However, based on the previous data available, the alien was evolving strongly, and the might of the Raytheon Cannon was not enough to kill it. The rate of it surviving is 78%.”
Yue Zhong stared at the rubble and frowned, “That means to say, that fellow is still not dead!”
He had to utilize all sorts of methods just to take out the Saint Emperor Xue Shi. Even if he had reached the peak of Type 6, he was not confident in taking on a Type 7 alien.
If possible, he would want to take it out before it matured. He would never allow his enemies to grow strong enough to threaten himself.
Bai Yi spoke, “From a perspective of probability, it is not dead.”
“I must take it out. I definitely cannot allow it to evolve to the Type 7 realm. Bai Yi, any suggestions?”
A savage glint flashed across Yue Zhong’s eyes as he shot across the ground and activated his Gravity Manipulation.
A faint yellowish shockwave spread through the ground, as it started to split apart as though it was alive, revealing a number of cracks.
After reaching the Type 6 realm, Yue Zhong was able to destroy an entire region stretching a few kilometers.
Once the earth split apart, the collapsed nest was revealed. Other than those aliens caught in the trajectory of the Raytheon Cannon beam, the rest of the aliens had not yet died. As the earth dislodged, they quickly leaped out and tried to flee in various directions.
Unfortunately for them, each time one appeared, the 6 bloody radiances surrounding Yue Zhong would sweep out and claim the lives of those aliens, turning them into dried up corpses.
With Bai Yi’s help, Yue Zhong continued to overturn the ground, finally arriving near the area where the alien queen’s corpse was.
At the instant, a black figure darted out like lightning, charging towards the Scarlet Reaper that Yue Zhong was piloting, slamming into the energy shield viciously.
After losing the Type 6 Nucleus, the Scarlet Reaper’s energy shield was not as powerful and was instantly shattered by that impact.
However, it allowed Yue Zhong to take a good look at the figure.
It was the alien that had been consuming the corpse of the alien queen, with a ferocious visage and a layer of black, mysterious light surrounding it as it exuded a terrifying aura.
After the alien destroyed the energy shield, it turned into a blur of light that shot for the heart area.
Yue Zhong took a look and his face fell, “Type 7 alien?”
It was a huge watershed between the Type 6 and Type 7 realms. Most Type 7 Divine Warriors could start to manipulate the atmospheric energy around them. Those who could not fly before would possess the ability to fly.
In a breath, the Type 7 alien shot in front of the heart area of the Scarlet Reaper, its eyes tearing through the armor like tofu.
The metal alloy that could withstand most heavy cannons could not bear the sharpness of the alien’s claws.
With a thought, Yue Zhong quickly exited the Scarlet Reaper and kept it into his Storage Ring, activating his flight ability as he shot into the sky.
After losing the Type 6 nucleus, the Scarlet Reaper lost much of its effectiveness in such a fight.
It was extremely useful in a battle against large numbers when used with the Type 6 nucleus.
Seeing Yue Zhong soar high, the alien’s eyes flashed with a dangerous glint as it released a bout of dark energy from behind it. Its speed was suddenly raised, and it reappeared right in front of Yue Zhong, slashing out with its sharp claws.
With a thought, the 6 bloody radiances blocked in front of him.
The sharp claws of the Type 7 alien slammed into the 6 radiances, causing a huge tear in one of them.
The claws struck out 6 consecutive times, tearing through the bloody radiances.
At the moment where the alien broke through all of the radiances, Yue Zhong roared in fury. The 6 bloody radiances turned into a powerful blood river that surrounded the alien, absorbing the blood essence of the alien frenziedly.
The Blood Manipulation ability was extremely insidious, it could become stronger by absorbing the blood essence of other biological life forms. The stronger the life form, the stronger the bloody radiance became.
Yue Zhong had controlled the bloody radiance to take in so much corrosive blood of the aliens, that even a Type 6 expert would be sucked dry in a manner of seconds if surrounded.
Unfortunately, the bloody radiance only managed to surround the Type 7 alien for barely 3 seconds, before it broke out.
The 6 bloody radiances were forcefully scattered. By the time they congealed back, the radiance had dimmed slightly, apparently losing some of its strength.
Yue Zhong stared in shock, “What a terrifying a Type 7 alien!!”
If it had been Yue Zhong, the moment he was surrounded by such a skill, he would activate the God-Devil Flame to burn it all. Otherwise, he would be sucked dry as well.
When the alien broke out, its eyes flashed ferociously, charging at Yue Zhong with the protection of the black energy surrounding it.
Yue Zhong channeled his Sixth Order Flight ability, shooting for the distance like a meteor.
The Type 7 alien was evidently a close-combat type. Such existences were incredibly tough since they were lacking in the long-range department.
Although Yue Zhong was also considered a close-combat specialist, however, compared to this killing machine, which was even a realm higher than him, he had no confidence of taking it on in a melee manner.
Both sides engaged in a chase, as they soared across the distance.
His Flight’s speed was faster than the Type 7 alien by 30%, however, he only managed to keep a certain distance, not pulling away.
After some time, he released the Scarlet Reaper once more and sent a Type 6 Nucleus into its body.
He then merged back in with it and piloted it to charge at full speed.
The speed of the Scarlet Reaper far exceeded the Type 7 alien. However, Yue Zhong did not forget to fire out a number of laser beams at the time he opened the wings.
The Type 7 alien had no means of retaliation, and could only watch helplessly as the light beams slammed into its body.
A number of terrifying explosions rang out, as the black energy surrounding the alien took on most of the impact, protecting the alien.
After the beams fired out continuously for 15 minutes, the Type 7 alien let out an unwilling roar of fury as it fell out of the sky.
Chapter 814: People from the Saint Lands!
Yue Zhong controlled the Scarlet Reaper to fire out multiple light beams at the alien, while the dark energy around the alien continued to absorb the impact, preventing any from damaging it.
However, due to the intensity of the assault, the dark shield was slowly starting to dim, while multiple spots were uneven.
Even a Type 7 expert would have a limit to its energy. Once the defenses were tested to the limits, they would naturally break as well.
The Type 7 alien was extremely crafty, once it saw that it could not catch up to Yue Zhong, it quickly descended and dashed towards the distance to flee.
“Trying to run?! Too bad, in front of the Scarlet Reaper, you can forget about it!”
Yue Zhong laughed coldly and with a thought, numerous sensors extended out of the Scarlet Reaper, taking in the route of the alien.
He piloted the Scarlet Reaper to give chase, each time he got near it, he would fire out multiple light beams.
On the ground, the Type 7 alien was much faster than it was in the air. However, compared to the Scarlet Reaper, it was just lacking a little. Although it made use of the surrounding foliage and boulders to cover itself, it would still be struck by those light beams.
At the same time, due to its increased speed, most of the light beams would hit blank space, causing only a bare few to hit the alien.
The continuous barrage happened for another 5 minutes, and the dark energy surrounding the Type 7 alien finally disappeared, and one light beam slammed into it.
A shocking scene appeared. The light beam that could easily pierce the toughest of metals was actually blocked by the exoskeleton of the alien, causing it to shudder slightly, but there was no true harm done.
In the sky, Yue Zhong saw this and frowned, “Damn it, this Type 7 alien’s defenses are too much! Should I fire another Raytheon Cannon?”
The Raytheon Cannon was the strongest weapon in the Scarlet Reaper’s arsenal. If hit, even a Type 7 expert would fall.
However, the speed of the Type 7 alien below was simply too fast. Due to its constant dodging and evading, Yue Zhong did not have the confidence of hitting it accurately.
Both sides continued in their chase, as they came to a mountain range.
Along the way, the huge mountain of over a thousand meters tall appeared in their eyes. They also caught sight of a natural cave at the foot of the mountain.
When the alien saw the cave, it flashed and charged directly for it.
Yue Zhong stood at the entrance and muttered in an upset manner, “Shit! It escaped!”
The entrance was extremely narrow and was perfect for that alien to squeeze through. If Yue Zhong forcefully charged in, he could be ambushed by the alien if he was not careful.
As he took a good look at the cave, he withdrew the Scarlet Reaper back into his Storage Ring.
“Where is this?”
Yue Zhong took a look around, noting that he had come to a vast forest, with countless trees all around. He could tell that there were many terrifying auras from various regions of the forests, belonging to Type 5 and Type 6 Mutant Beasts.
At this time, there was the sound of a loud roar, as though it came from a dragon from legends.
“There’s someone fighting over there!”
Yue Zhong heard the roar and swiftly made his way over.
On a hill on the west side of the forest, there was a huge airship spanning over a hundred meters parked.
3km away, there was a strange creature of over 60m, looking like a dragon from Western mythology, covered in black scales and flapping its massive, fleshy wings. It was roaring out continuously.
The black dragon-like beast emitted a dangerous pressure, as sand and gravel circled its body due to the black energy it was radiating.
In front of it, there a few warriors inside mechs of about 3 meters in height, covered in countless tubes and electric components, fighting against the dragon-like beast.
These soldiers had activated their energy shields, while wielding powerful particle cannons, and were surrounding the dragon-like beast, firing out at it continuously.
Although the beast looked massive, its speed was incredibly quick. In just a few breaths, it appeared in front of one of the soldiers, swiping its huge claws down. That attack destroyed the energy shield of the unfortunate soldier like cracking an egg, before crushing the soldier into a pulp.
The particle beams fired out at the surrounding foliage and earth, causing devastating destruction.
Any tree and boulder hit by those beams were instantly annihilated in a powerful blast.
After crushing one of the soldiers, the huge dragon sought to fly in the sky, appearing in front of another soldier, and swiped down, crushing him as well.
At this time, the rest of the soldiers waved their hands, as a number of beams shot out from the boxes behind them. They combined to form a huge web, that covered the dragon.
Once it was caught, it began to struggle, trying its best to escape from the web, but was unable to break free.
The soldiers in that special armor continued to use their particle cannons on the dragon, wearing its energy shield down.
The huge dragon continued to struggle, unable to break free. It watched helplessly as the particle beams struck its body continuously.
However, the defenses of the huge dragon were astonishing as well. As the beams struck it, they were unable to breach its defenses.
On top of a huge tree about 200m away from the fight, there were 2 men in white combat uniform, looking extraordinary. They observed the battle with a cold and disdainful gaze.
One of them had a long ponytail, his face bright as he smiled, “Heh! This time, we’re considered lucky, actually discovering this Type 5 Black Dragon Beast that was just born not long ago. Its innate potential is limitless, if allowed to mature, it can become a Type 7 Mutant Beast. Zhang Xuan, this time I just want the beast, the rest of the spoils will be yours.”
The other man with the cold gaze, Zhang Xuan, refused directly, “Chen Liang. I can’t do that. I want that beast, you can have the rest.”
Chen Liang frowned, before chuckling, “Forget it. Let’s talk about it after we deal with the beast. If we fall out over something we haven’t obtain, it would be truly silly. Furthermore, with such a good sapling, those old things at the Saint Land might not let us have it.”
Zhang Xuan nodded silently.
The huge Black Dragon Beast continued to struggle under the net. As it became clearer that it was not able to escape, the look in its eyes turned incredibly savage, and it spat out a black flame at the net.
The black flame carried with it a mysterious and evil power, distorting the space as it slammed into the net.
The moment it came into contact, the aura of the black dragon exploded out, causing the net to twist and snap.
With that, the Black Dragon Beast started to tear with all its might, extracting itself from the net. It then grabbed one of the soldiers nearby and crushed it in its claws. It then spat out a ring of black flames all around, causing the human soldiers to burn.
Chen Liang laughed out confidently, “Even our Saint Warriors were killed so easily, this Type 5 Black Dragon Beast is truly not simple. Let’s make a move, lest it kills more of our soldiers and escapes, that would be a huge loss then.”
After that, Chen Liang shot forward, appearing above the Type 5 Black Dragon Beast in a flash. His entire body then emitted a powerful aura, reaching the initial-Type 6 realm, and sent a powerful fist blasting towards the Black Dragon Beast, smashing into its head.
The Type 5 Black Dragon Beast took the hit and was sent crashing into the ground, its black energy shield disappearing.
At that moment, the entire ground trembled upon the impact.
With a burst of grey light, a human silhouette shot towards the beast, sending another fist into the body of the Type 5 Black Dragon Beast.
The scales of the Type 5 Black Dragon Beast broke apart, and it was sent flying another few hundred meters.
As it tumbled, 2 powerful blade beams shot through its wings, one black and one white, as its wings were sliced off amidst a shower of blood and scales.
The Type 5 Black Dragon Beast roared out in agony, its wings torn off by the Type 6 Chen Liang and Zhang Xuan.
Chapter 815: Black Dragon Beast!
With its wings destroyed, the Type 5 Black Dragon Beast was no longer capable of flight.
The soldiers surrounding the Type 5 Black Dragon Beast quickly fired their particle cannons at the beast as well.
Losing the black energy protection, the Black Dragon Beast was bombarded by attacks, its scales chipping off and its blood flowing freely. It continued to roar out in agony and fear.
With the passing of time, its strength began to plummet.
Just then, there was an earth-shaking roar from a far-off distance, causing one to tremble.
When Chen Liang heard the roar, his face fell, “No good! That fellow’s family is here! Judging from the roar, it should be at least Type 6! It’s not something we can take it on! Disperse now!”
This Black Dragon Beast is similar to the Wyrm that Yue Zhong came across before. It was a natural-occurring ferocious Mutant Beast. A Type 6 Black Dragon Beast was enough to go against a low-level Type 7 Mutant Beast, even killing one.
While Chen Liang and his team were able to make use of the means at their disposal to deal with a Type 5 Black Dragon Beast, it would only be death if they fought against a Type 6 one. Against a Type 7 Black Dragon Beast, there would simply be no escape.
Under his orders, everyone quickly retreated quickly, moving towards the airship.
Barely moments after they left, a terrifying tornado blew past, as a hundred-meter Black Dragon Beast came descending with its mighty wings flapping. It emitted a terrifying aura, as it swept its huge, golden eyes towards the broken Black Dragon Beast on the ground.
Yue Zhong had activated his Stealth ability as he hid in one corner. He had witnessed everything from the start to the end and could feel the strength of the aura from the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast, and he was filled with shock, “Is this a Type 6 Mutant Beast? No! Its aura is stronger than mine, just slightly below that damned Emperor Ba Long. In terms of just pressure, it’s already stronger than most Type 7 experts.”
Feeling the mighty pressure, Yue Zhong closed his eyes and retracted all signs of his aura. His breath, heartbeat, body warmth, presence were all tightly withdrawn, as though he had become a stone.
Seeing the Type 5 Black Dragon Beast with its mutilated wings, the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast had a ferocious glint in its eyes. It opened its huge jaws and let out a furious roar that rocked the ground and area.
A powerful soundwave blasted out in a 500m radius, as all the trees, boulders within the region were destroyed.
The soundwave also shook Yue Zhong in his Stealth mode, causing his internal organs to be shaken despite his God-Devil Body.
As for Chen Liang and the rest who were a distance away, they were also swept by that attack. Both he and Zhang Xuan spat out a mouthful of blood, as they quickened their pace.
3 of the soldiers wearing mechanical armor crumpled to the ground, not moving anymore. 8 others were rocked and their movements became unsteady, while the rest followed Chen Liang and Zhang Xuan closely
After that roar, the terrifying Type 6 Black Dragon Beast flapped its wings and whipped up a terrifying tornado as it shot towards the Saint Land experts.
Barely 20 seconds after the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast left, Yue Zhong opened his eyes as he looked towards the heavily injured Type 5 Black Dragon Beast.
With a thought, 6 bloody radiances shot towards the Black Dragon Beast without a sound and wrapped around the Type 5 Black Dragon Beast.
As they surrounded the body, the wounds began to split and huge amounts of blood were absorbed.
Had the Type 5 Black Dragon Beast had been at its prime condition, it could at least retaliate. However, it was extremely weakened now, unable to resist the absorption. It opened its jaws, intending to roar for help. However, the evil blood went straight into its throat and jammed it, preventing it from making a sound.
In just 3 seconds, the entire Black Dragon Beast was sucked dry, turning into a corpse with a layer of skin and bones.
A powerful bout of life force entered Yue Zhong’s body, at the same time, the bloody radiances retrieved a Type 5 Nucleus and delivered it into his hands.
Yue Zhong swept a gaze across his bloody radiances, discovering that they had evolved to 7 beams, “The latent potential within the blood of this Type 5 Black Dragon Beast is truly amazing.”
The Blood Manipulation ability was overpowered. The more the blood absorbed, the stronger it became, the more it split into as well. After becoming 7 beams, Yue Zhong was able to sweep through Type 5 Mutant Beasts.
With a thought, White Bones stepped out from the nether realm and began to work on the bones and scales of the Type 5 Black Dragon Beast’s corpse.
After reaching the Type 6 realm, White Bones’ bones had also started to evolve towards a white-silver color. At the same time, it had begun to emit a powerful and cold aura. A Type 5 expert might not necessarily be a match for White Bones at this stage.
When White Bones appeared, it quickly went over to the bones and started absorbing the bone essences.
Other than Yue Zhong’s skill being upgraded to help White Bones, it could also absorb the essence from bones to evolve. However, with its current strength, it could only evolve from absorbing bone essence from Type 5 Mutant Beasts. Type 4 Mutant Beasts could not help it much.
“I should go save those experts from the Saint Lands. See if I can establish some connections with them. Their technology and martial arts are all exceptional, compared to those from the South Origin City, it truly is a vast difference.”
With this thought, Yue Zhong left White Bones behind, as he activated Stealth and darted through the forest, heading towards Chen Liang and the rest.
In the sky, the huge airship had activated its protection, trying its best to flee far ahead.
By this time, the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast had caught up, slamming into the energy shield like a black meteor. Each time, the impact caused the energy shield to crack a little more, as though it was on a verge of collapsing.
Even so, the airship was still holding out, like a small boat in the raging seas, shaking and its fate unknown.
Yue Zhong lifted his head to eye the battle between the behemoths, without any intention to help yet. Currently, the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast had not yet actually engaged the experts within. If he joined the fray now, who knew if their animosity might be taken out on him.
A pilot came up to Chen Liang, reporting, “Saint Envoy Chen Lian, we are currently down to 46% of our energy. If things continue on like this, we will lose all power in 1 minute’s time, and we would have to shut down the shield and land the airship.”
Chen Liang’s face turned incredibly ugly, as he asked Zhang Xuan, “What do you think? Shall we go all out? Otherwise, if we lose power later, we can’t even do anything.”
Zhang Xuan nodded silently after a moment of contemplation, “Let’s do it.”
Chen Liang ordered, “Land the airship, all Saint Warriors are to prepare for battle”
With his orders, the huge ship quickly descended while withstanding the hits from the Black Dragon Beast.
The moment they landed, 30 Saint Warriors leaped out, raising their weapons and firing out at the beast in the air. A light net was formed that enveloped the Black Dragon Beast that had shot down too fast to dodge the net.
Trapped by the light net, the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast extended out its wings, and struggled violently, tearing the light net apart.
The 30 Saint Warriors were then sent flying a dozen meters.
Once the beast broke apart from the net, it flapped its massive wings and with a gust of tornado, it charged towards the 30 soldiers with its Mach-3 Speed. Each time its claws came smashing down, the soldiers would be crushed like minced meat.
Without any noise, Chen Liang suddenly exploded out and turned into a flash of white light that shot towards the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast. On his pale white hand, a white radiance continued to glow brightly as space was torn asunder and repaired continuously.
Chen Liang was a top expert in the Saint Lands, training in one of the strongest arts within the Saint Lands, Space Disruption. Once he utilized it, his hands were able to tear through any protection and cause damage to his opponents.
In a breath, he appeared on the right wing of the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast, slapping both his hands down, and at that moment, space was torn and the energy protection of the Black Dragon Beast was penetrated, allowing his fists to punch out at the right wing.
As space was rapidly degenerating and repairing, the scales on the right wing were destroyed, causing blood to flow.
Chapter 816: Reaching the Type 7 Realm!
However, even with the profound Space Disruption skill, it was impossible for him to tear through the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast’s wings, only causing some light wounds.
The Black Dragon Beast turned around coldly as though it was not affected in the slightest bit, and sent a breath of terrifying dragon’s breath towards Chen Liang.
“No!! Block it!!”
Chen Liang suddenly felt a sense of danger as he let out a roar of despair. With a flip of his hand, a jade plate appeared and glowed brightly, turning into a shield that protected him.
The all-burning Dragon’s Breath immediately enveloped Chen Liang. Under its intense flame, the shield barely held up for a moment before collapsing. The Type 6 Chen Liang was then turned into ashes, not before he revealed a look of despair at the moment he died.
Seeing that, Zhang Xuan’s heart turned cold. He might not like Chen Liang, but as humans, he did not want to see him dead. Furthermore, now that he was alone, he had no confidence in dealing with this Type 6 Black Dragon Beast.
“Duck to the right!”
At this moment, a loud roar sounded from afar. When Zhang Xuan heard that human voice, he quickly shot for the right.
From the forest afar, the Scarlet Reaper had already transformed into the Raytheon Cannon-form under Yue Zhong’s control, and an intense amount of energy was being gathered.
The seemingly-invincible Type 6 Black Dragon Beast felt a sudden crisis. It could no longer bother about killing Zhang Xuan, instead, flapping its wings to soar into the sky.
The next moment, a white beam shot out from the Scarlet Reaper, blasting towards the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast.
The pillar of light slammed into the protective energy of the Black Dragon Beast, which shuddered for barely half a breath’s time before it collapsed.
However, it allowed the Black Dragon Beast to evade out of the radius. Unfortunately, its lower body did not manage to escape from the pillar of light and was instantly disintegrated.
After the light disappeared, and the lower body of the Black Dragon Beast was destroyed, blood flowed and its inner organs splattered out.
It was just that immediately, the wounds began to close up and stop bleeding at a speed visible to the naked eye.
The Type 6 Black Dragon Beast was heavily injured and had no mood to continue chasing the Saint Land people. It flapped its wings and raised a tornado in a bid to flee.
“It was actually able to flee with its life after taking a hit from the Raytheon Cannon. This Type 6 Black Dragon Beast is truly terrifying.”
Yue Zhong stared at the fleeing Black Dragon Beast and his heart turned cold. He piloted the Scarlet Reaper to change back into its mech mode, as its wings of light flashed. It charged forward at a speed of Mach-6, turning into a shooting star that chased after the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast.
In a few seconds, the Scarlet Reaper had caught up to the Black Dragon Beast, pulling out a huge laser blade as it slashed at the right wing of the beast.
Having lost the protection radiance, the laser blade of the Scarlet Reaper cleaved down viciously, tearing through the scales of the Black Dragon Beast and through the entire wing, causing large amounts of blood to pour out.
At that moment, the Black Dragon Beast twisted its body and used its huge tail to slam the Scarlet Reaper viciously.
Yue Zhong had to control the Scarlet Reaper to wield its blade with both hands, just to tear through the wing. He had no energy left to defend itself, and thus, the tail slammed into him, causing the waist to almost break.
After suffering that hit, the Scarlet Reaper shot backward, its frame quivering, causing Yue Zhong’s blood to flow erratically as well.
Since the wings of the Black Dragon Beast allowed it to fly, losing one caused its entire body to destabilize, and it began to descend.
In that instant, Yue Zhong quickly readjusted his state and controlled the Scarlet Reaper to soar around to the other side. He then charged back towards the Black Dragon Beast and slashed out viciously, cleaving through the remaining wing.
Having lost both its wings, the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast could no longer maintain its balance and started to descend, as it spat out a mouthful of blood.
Yue Zhong then piloted the Scarlet Reaper to shoot down, wielding the laser blade to penetrate the head of the beast, directly crushing the contents.
With its death, a huge amount of life force was absorbed into Yue Zhong’s body. Due to the pure and strong life force, it quickly kicked off a chain reaction within Yue Zhong’s body.
The life force spread throughout Yue Zhong’s body, as it was continuously refined into the light-gold mist. The mist began to strengthen every single cell and fiber of his body.
In the end, the mist also traveled to Yue Zhong’s head, strengthening his sea of notification.
As the light-gold mist entered his mind, it was absorbed into his God-Devil Nucleus, strengthening the various runes within it.
Under the constant evolution, the skill runes began to glow in a faint gold color, as their originally silver color began to turn.
Then, with a loud boom, something seemed to break within his mind, and he instantly felt like he had transcended time and space. A flurry of notifications began to ring out in his mind, as more runes and enlightenment filled his head.
“Congratulations on becoming a Type 7 Divine Warrior.”
“Congratulations, all skills have been raised by a tier.”
Amidst the sweet sounds, Yue Zhong opened his eyes slowly, and a look of excitement flashed within, “Type 7! I’ve actually broken through to the Type 7 realm!! This is great!”
After he reached the Type 7 realm, Yue Zhong closed his eyes and took a deep breath. He extended his right hand and felt a powerful force gathering within
Looking at it, he thought, “Since I’ve reached the Type 7 realm, there’s a qualitative difference. I can absorb and manipulate the atmospheric energy. My combat strength has now far surpassed a Type 6 Divine Warrior.”
He could clearly sense the chaotic energy surrounding him, and as long as he willed it, he could manipulate it to allow him to fly, or absorb it to strengthen his own prowess.
With this ability, his strength and stamina would be greatly empowered on the battlefield. Even if he went into a million-strong horde, he could easily slaughter his way out.
He collected himself and pointed at the corpse of the Black Dragon Beast, and the blood from within began to congeal and formed a bloody radiance around him.
This radiance contained the blood essence of this terrifying Black Dragon Beast. Every single drop was precious and could be used to groom an expert.
At the same time, the blood brought along the Type 6 nucleus into his hand, reimbursing his losses incurred from taking on the Type 7 alien.
Zhang Xuan came up to Yue Zhong and bowed, “Many thanks to senior for lending a hand! I’m Saint Envoy Zhang Xuan from the Saint Lands, how do I address senior?”
Yue Zhong laughed lightly, “I’m Yue Zhong, a wandering cultivator from South Origin City.”
He had already obtained quite a bit of information from South Origin City.
This world was one of technology and martial arts. Experts were rampant, and the strongest cultivators and advanced technology were all in the Saint Lands. Other than that, there were a few wandering cultivators who traversed the world on their own, dealing with the ferocious beasts and trained bitterly. Many of them were exceptionally strong, and might not lose out to any experts from the Saint Lands.
When Zhang Xuan heard it, he was a little suspicious, but continued to speak respectfully, “Yue Zhong, in order to repay you for saving my life, I hope that you can accompany me to the Saint Lands, and let me host you, how about it?”
Although he did not believe Yue Zhong’s background, Yue Zhong had indeed saved his life. At the same time, he had seen the Scarlet Reaper. Just based on that mech, it was enough for him to be respectful.
This time, Zhang Xuan had suffered huge losses on this hunting mission, even losing another Saint Envoy, as well as his entire troop of Saint Soldiers. If he did not bring back some contributions, he would not be let off. If he could invite such an expert as well as the Scarlet Reaper back to the Saint Lands, he would be heavily rewarded instead of being punished.
Yue Zhong laughed lightly and replied directly, “Sure! I was heading over there to take a look.”
Zhang Xuan then extended his hand out, inviting Yue Zhong into his airship.
After the both of them entered, the airship turned into a beam of light that shot towards the west.
Chapter 817: Saint Lands!
The massive airship continued to fly through the air, before arriving at the Saint Lands after half a day.
The Saint Lands was located on a spiritual mountain filled with energy in the middle of Planet Uros. There were over 18 wide paths leading to the peak of the mountain.
On either side of the 18 tunnels were 18 huge cities, each one resplendent and beautiful.
As they soared above the 18 cities, they could see the countless aliens already launching assaults on the various cities below.
The humans were crying and screaming as they tried to flee in all directions.
However, there was a stark difference between the 18 cities and South Origin City.
The strongest firepower of South Origin City was the 36 electromagnetic cannons and most of the people defending used melee weapons. As for firearms, there were just ordinary rifles. In any case, compared to these firearms, the cultivators themselves were even more terrifying.
The Saint Lands were different, as each of them had particle cannons, plasma bombs, gauss rifles, laser tanks, and other heavy weapons.
At the point of the aliens’ attack, firepower rained in all directions.
Along the streets of one city, an alien with a pair of blades growing out of its head and a gray exoskeleton appeared, pouncing towards dozens of the fleeing humans.
In just a breath, the alien had already charged within their midst and waved its blades about, slicing through 6 of them at the waist, as blood and organs spilled everywhere.
At this moment, a Type 4 expert came roaring from a short distance away, his body shrouded in an impenetrable ice armor. Both his hands were congealing icy energies as he charged towards that alien.
The bladed-alien leaped with all its might, charging through the human crowd, dodging the attack of that expert, causing him to hit thin air.
Even so, the icy aura spread out, causing the region around him to rapidly freeze, stretching towards the alien.
In response, the alien leaped and evaded the attack once more, before twisting its head to fire off its tongue that penetrated the head of the expert in a split second, killing him effortlessly.
4 Type 3 martial artists roared as they charged towards the alien as well.
With a flash, the alien weaved through them, and its blades slashed through the air, directly slicing them up in multiple pieces.
Just as the alien was about to continue on its unbridled killing spree, 5 Saint Soldiers wearing the powerful mech armor charged out from one corner.
With a wave of their hands, beams shot out from behind their backs, turning into a light net that shot towards the alien.
Sensing danger, the alien leaped and tried to flee.
However, the net was made out of powerful technology, and it quickly encompassed the alien, wrapping around it as it began to struggle madly.
The moment they caught it, the 5 Saint Soldiers began to unload their particle beams into it.
The beams then punched through the exoskeletons of the alien, causing huge holes as it began to turn into a hole-riddled corpse.
Noticing something wrong, the leader of the soldier had a change of expression, “Not good! Retract the net!”
The corrosive blood of the blood was extremely terrifying, almost corroding most of the net away.
They quickly kept the net back, as it was one of their trump cards.
Just after they retrieved the net, there was a sudden gust of wind, as a blade tore through all 5 of their heads.
The decapitated heads soared through the air, landing and bleeding out.
A stronger bladed-alien appeared in the distance, coldly glaring over.
At this time, a terrifying laser beam shot from afar, slamming into the left shoulder of the alien, causing its extended blade to be blown apart.
The alien roared out in pain and quickly charged through the fleeing humans as it engaged in a massacre, killing over 30 humans in a breath.
The battle between the humans and aliens was extremely savage and cruel, with huge numbers of casualties on both sides every passing second.
In comparison, although the humans had more advanced weaponry, their death toll was higher.
Every single alien was born a killing machine, with natural talents in hunting and killing. Although their numbers were lesser, each one of them could easily tear through a crowd of humans.
Other than holding the advantage in close combat, some of the aliens had tongues that could extend out for quite far. As long as the soldiers got within range, the aliens would make use of that projectile-like tongue to take down the human soldiers.
The only experts within the 18 cities that could deal with the aliens were the Type 4 and Type 5 human cultivators.
Any Type 3 experts that appeared would only be killed within a second.
There were over 3 million people within the 18 cities, 200,000 of them were experts, but they were being annihilated by this group of aliens that were not even more than 30,000 in numbers.
Even Yue Zhong sucked in a breath of cold air upon witnessing this scene.
These 30,000 aliens were not trash, unlike those zombies. Even someone as strong as Yue Zhong piloting the Scarlet Reaper could not take out all 30,000 within a short time.
A single laser beam that could punch through tens of thousands of zombies could not even cause a scratch on the aliens.
On the airship, Zhang Xuan looked out in horror as an alien tore a Type 5 human expert in half, his face turning pale, “What the hell is that?! How are they so terrifying?!”
By this time, all the experts within the Saint Lands were being deployed out, as a huge number of experts sat in armored vehicles that rolled out to provide reinforcements.
A number of fighter jets also shot out from the Saint Lands, arriving at the airspace above the cities.
When they arrived, they quickly focused their firepower upon the aliens below.
Seeing the fighter jets, Zhang Xuan quickly relayed a message over, “This is Saint Envoy Zhang Xuan, what’s going on?!”
When the soldier within the fighter jet saw that it was Zhang Xuan, he replied respectfully but solemnly, “Sir, the Saint Lord has just confirmed that those monsters below are the harbingers of the apocalypse. The Saint Lord has already given the order for all Saint Envoys to report back, you’d better contact His Majesty quickly.”
Zhang Xuan’s face fell when he heard that, muttering under his breath, “Apocalypse… there was actually such a thing… I had thought that it was just a myth…”
A thousand years was too long in human history. Most would forget easily what happened even if there were records. The apocalypses of the past were treated as myths, no one had expected such a thing to actually happen.
However, Zhang Xuan was also a Type 6 expert, and he quickly calmed himself down, ordering, “Open a channel to His Majesty.”
Soon, a man with a deep and stern gaze, dressed in a robe with countless stars and wielding a staff inlaid with countless Mutant Beasts nuclei appeared on the display.
Zhang Xuan immediately bowed in respect, “Your subject greets Your Majesty!”
The Saint Lord glanced at Zhang Xuan and spoke, “Zhang Xuan, quickly head to Cleansing Wind City, and join up with Tang Xi and Murong Wang to wipe out those aliens.”
“Yes!” Zhang Xuan replied immediately.
After that, he piloted the airship towards Cleansing Wind City, which happened to be the closest.
By now, there were over 20 airships in the air, and they were all different from Zhang Xuan’s own airship. Some were over 100 meters in length and they were all equipped with countless cannons, firing out their projectiles madly.
Due to the support of these airships, the defense line of the city was able to hold out and withstand the assault.
With the firepower of these 20 airships, if they were placed on Earth, they could easily wipe out over 100,000 zombies in a flash.
However, these aliens were essentially different creatures. Their numbers were lesser but each one was more powerful and lethal than a group of zombies. Their formations were also widely spread out, and the dense firepower only served to kill them one by one, instead of dealing with a large group.
Zhang Xuan followed the orders of the Cleansing Wind City and landed on a field.
Out on the field, over a hundred soldiers were stationed. On top of that, there were 60 other experts dressed in stars-covered robes. The group was separated in two lines, and the weakest amongst them was at the Type 5 realm.
Chapter 818: Arrogance!
Among the 2 rows of soldiers, one of them was dressed in a blue robe, his hands behind his back. He exuded an extraordinary aura, as well as a proud countenance. This was Murong Wang.
The leader of the other group was dressed in green, her long hair tied up in a ponytail. She had exquisite features, but a cold gaze, as though no fire could ever melt that icy countenance. She was Tang Xi. Beside her, 20 other female warriors stood, each of them beautiful in their own right, exuding a mild arrogance as well.
It had to be known that every single person chosen by the Saint Lands had undergone strict conditions. Each time, there would be a rigorous test to sift out those who were capable and worthy of the Saint Lands. Among 10,000, there might only be one or two.
These experts were the cream of the crop of the planet Uros, all of them heaven-defying talents, with powerful combat abilities. Even the 5 top experts of South Origin City would not be a match for any of them. Therefore, they had a deep-set arrogance.
Murong Wang glanced at Yue Zhong who was beside Zhang Xuan, and frowned, “Zhang Xuan, who is this? He’s not someone from our Saint Lands!”
Tang Xi also shot a cold look at Yue Zhong, her gaze full of suspicions.
Zhang Xuan introduced simply, “This is Yue Zhong, a wandering cultivator from South Origin City, and he’s my friend.”
“The kind that trains like a demon against Mutant Beasts? Seems like he’s pretty capable.”
“Maybe. But, compared to us, they’re nothing. He doesn’t even have the aura of a cultivator though, are you sure he’s not a liar?”
Hearing Zhang Xuan’s words, the elites besides Murong Wang and Tang Xi began to engage in discussion. Although they felt that Yue Zhong was likely capable, he was far off from their level.
Murong Wang swept a condescending gaze at Yue Zhong, and barked out an order as though he was commanding his subordinate, “Yue Zhong, go over there and report, await further orders!”
This Murong Wang was incomparably arrogant, as though he did not care for Yue Zhong’s thoughts. He just assumed that Yue Zhong would obey.
Yue Zhong laughed coldly as he looked back at Murong Wang, “What a joke. I’m not from your Saint Lands, why should I listen to you? Who the hell do you think you are?”
Currently, Yue Zhong was already a Type 7 expert, as well as the lord of his own faction. If Murong Wang’s attitude was slightly better, there could be at least some form of discussion. However, since this Murong Wang treated him like some dog, he would not be courteous either.
Hearing Yue Zhong’s words, all the faces of the Saint Soldiers fell and looked at Yue Zhong as though he was already a dead person.
Strength and character were not related. This Murong Wang was a genius at cultivation, reaching the Type 6 realm at a mere 60 years. Within the Saint Lands, he was considered 1 of the 10 demon-level geniuses. However, his temper was extremely bad, and those who offended him had terrible outcomes.
His handsome face was dark at this point, glancing at Yue Zhong with a gaze full of killing intent. Ever since he reached the Type 6 realm, there seemed to be no one who dared speak to him like that.
“Audacious! You dared to speak to Saint Envoy Murong Wang like this, I shall teach you how to be obedient!”
One particular handsome youth beside Murong Wang burst out. He possessed a Type 5 realm strength and appeared right in front of Yue Zhong with a flash. His right fist glowed as it shot towards Yue Zhong’s face.
“Good! Wang Hao, teach that kid a lesson! Let him experience true power!”
“Just a mere wandering cultivator and you dare challenge the might of our Saint Lands, what guts.”
The rest of the elites besides Murong Wang laughed coldly. Those that followed Murong Wang had naturally become proud over time as well. In their opinions, other than the Saint Lands, all other experts were trash. Now, one such a trash dared to yap, they were naturally furious.
“Just you? I will teach you how to be a proper human being!” Yue Zhong’s eyes glinted dangerously, his left hands reaching out and grabbing Wang Hao’s neck.
Facing that grab, Wang Hao’s face fell. He suddenly felt as though a world-crushing pressure was aimed at him. He twisted his body with all his might, executing his secret art, Serpent Movement, trying to evade with an unbelievable speed and contortion.
Even so, he was unable to escape from Yue Zhong’s clutch. In a split second, Yue Zhong had grabbed onto his neck, sending a powerful force into his body, causing him to become weak.
After that, Yue Zhong sent his free hand slapping across Wang Hao’s face ruthlessly. The palm caused Wang Hao’s face to swell, and two teeth were even knocked out in a spray of blood.
Having taken this hit, Wang Hao felt a strong sense of humiliation. He had slapped countless others, now that the same was being done to him, he felt incredible shame.
Seeing Wang Hao caught like a chicken in Yue Zhong’s hands, and his face being slapped harshly, all the people of Murong Wang and Tang Xi became furious, but no one charged out. They knew that Wang Hao was considered a strong person among them, yet he was caught so easily. This meant that Yue Zhong was not simple. They might be proud, but they were not stupid and rash.
At this time, Murong Wang’s face turned dark, and a terrifying aura exuded out from his body. His gaze turned sharp and he stared at Yue Zhong, a killing intent pouring, “Unhand him!”
At this time, Zhang Xuan rushed forward in between Murong Wang and Yue Zhong, “Wait a minute!”
Zhang Xuan’s back was riddled with cold perspiration, “Murong Wang, now it’s not the time to cause internal strife. We have a common enemy!! Those aliens!! If our main hunting strength was injured here, then who will protect the 200,000 people of Cleansing Wind City? If the Saint Lord were to get furious, none of us can shoulder the punishment! Tang Xi! Aren’t you going to help?!”
Zhang Xuan had witnessed Yue Zhong controlling the Scarlet Reaper to kill the Type 6 Black Dragon Beast, furthermore, Yue Zhong’s temper was obviously not good. If both sides came to a clash, it would be a slugfest. Whoever won, there would be no benefits.
The cold Tang Xi stepped forward, her voice ringing out, “Let’s deal with the aliens in Cleansing Wind City first, whoever dares to initiate a fight, will be my enemy.”
The beautiful female warriors beside her also stepped out, their gazes resolute, obviously standing by Tang Xi’s decision.
Murong Wang retracted his killing intent, glancing at limp Wang Hao in his hands, coldly saying, “Return Wang Hao. Our matters will be left to after dealing with the aliens.”
Yue Zhong waved his hands, sending Wang Hao soaring Murong Wang, “Here!”
Once he let go of Wang Hao, Wang Hao quickly regained use of his energy.
In mid-air, he quickly revealed his Type 5 strength. He landed swiftly and pulled out a medicinal pill to consume. He then stepped back silently, but the venomous look in his gaze as he looked at Yue Zhong was apparent.
Zhang Xuan spoke up, “Since they have requested for our help, let’s quickly split up and head to frontlines.”
The aliens were powerful killing machines and possessed terrifying combat abilities. Even with the might of the most elite Saint Soldiers, and employing countless advanced technology, the humans of Cleansing Wind City were unable to fend off the aliens.
The firepower of the 20 airships was no joke though, but because the aliens were so scattered, and their defenses strong, it was hard to kill them all in one go. They had to release over dozens of cannons and hundreds of laser beams just to kill a single alien. It was like using bombs just to kill a single mosquito. The only usefulness was to prevent them from gathering. Preventing them from gathering helped lower the casualty rates of the Saint Soldiers.
Tang Xi nodded quietly, “Sure!”
Murong Wang shot Yue Zhong a deep gaze as he ordered coldly, “Let’s go!”
Soon, the entire group set off in 3 different directions.
Tang Xi, Murong Wang, and Zhang Xuan were all cultivators, but not commanders. Within the airship, there was a separate command post that relayed information to the 3 leaders, giving them updates.
On one street within Cleansing Wind City, 20 Saint Soldiers were currently engaging 3 aliens in an intense battle.
Bright flashes occurred as nets flew over them, capturing one particular bladed-alien.
However, out of the blue, the bladed alien shot forwards, its blades slicing out, tearing apart the net that even the Type 5 Black Dragon Beast could not get out of.
Under the petrified gazes of 5 of the soldiers, the bladed-alien flashed forwards, turning into a gust of wind as it shot past the 5 unfortunate soldiers, turning them into slices of meat amidst a shower of blood.
Chapter 819: Battle!
After killing the 5 human soldiers, the type 5 alien let out a howl that could cause one’s skin to crawl.
Hearing that sharp shriek, many of the survivors felt their hearts tremble. They were overcome by fear as their bodies shook and they lost their fighting will.
Seeing this, the soldiers all felt their hearts run cold as well. These were the elite soldiers of the Saint Lands, and a single one of them could deal with a hundred ordinary soldiers. These experts were actually being slaughtered like pigs, thus, it was natural that everyone felt fear.
“Beast, go to hell!”
At this moment, there was a roar of rage, as a powerful force in the shape of the dragon shot towards the Type 5 alien.
The force clamped down on the Type 5 alien, causing its exoskeleton to cave in, however, it was not enough to bite through.
Under the pressure of that force, the Type 5 alien began to struggle, trying to get out of the grasp. However, it was futile.
Murong Wang shot towards the alien in a flash, sending out a palm that exploded out with unimaginable force.
Immediately, the Type 5 alien seemed to stop struggling, before it exploded out, blood splattering everywhere, corroding whatever it came in contact with.
“It’s the Saint Envoy!!”
“The Saint Envoy is here!!”
“The Saint Envoy is invincible!!”
Seeing how easily Murong Wang took out the Type 5 alien, the people around erupted in excited cheers.
The Type 5 alien had killed numerous soldiers, destroying weapons and equipment in the process, and was seemingly invincible. Being killed in one hit naturally boosted the morale of the soldiers, and their reverence towards Murong Wang shot up.
Murong Wang, however, frowned silently, “The defense of these monsters is truly too shocking.”
Initially, he had thought that his dragon-shaped force would be able to tear the Type 5 alien into pieces. However, its defense had been out of his expectations. It had required him to hit the beast personally, just to kill it.
With a tremble, a 2m-long treasure sword appeared in his hands, as he ordered, “Grab your weapons, 5 men to one team. Watch out, these monsters are strong!!”
Although he was arrogant and narrow-minded, he knew when to take the situation seriously. On this battlefield, he did not wish for any of his subordinates to perish.
Hearing his words, the elites soldiers all felt a tinge of fear. They produced their weapons and got into 5-man teams, as they began hunting down the aliens.
On another street, there were flashes of beams as a Type 5 alien was chopped up in many pieces.
The cold fairy Tang Xi arched her brows, and ordered coldly, “5 to one team, get into formation, do not make any risky moves.”
The female warriors of the Saint Land felt a shiver in their heart, as they replied respectfully, “Yes!”
At another street, 50 human elite soldiers were engaging an alien from hidden corners.
These 50 elites were not from the Saint Lands, instead, they were the special forces belonging to Cleansing Wind City.
Although their equipment could not compare to the Saint Land soldiers, they were still giving it their all, firing their Gauss rifles, wearing light-alloy armor to defend against the onslaught.
The rain of Gauss rifle bullets fell upon that alien.
The alien darted about, weaving through the rain of bullets. As dozens of rounds struck its exoskeleton, they only caused minor scratches, as drops of corrosive blood flowed.
Although the Gauss rifles could not cause any life-threatening injuries towards these aliens, it was not totally ineffective.
Following a loud roar, 5 human soldiers got out from the positions, firing their Gauss rifles in anger, “Go to hell, beast!!!”
In just a breath’s time, the alien had reached their position. As its bladed body danced about, the 5 human soldiers were sliced apart.
At that instant, the numerous plasma bombs on their bodies exploded out, consuming the alien together with the corpses of the 5 martyrs.
Hidden at a corner, Trion, a burly commander turned to the direction of the explosion, as he saluted while tears flowed down his cheeks, “Men, you guys did well!! You are the heroes of our Cleansing Wind City!!”
Beside Trion, a dozen soldiers also saluted in silence and sorrow.
Although they were elites, against the aliens, they were incomparably weak. They could not even catch a glimpse of the movements of the aliens. Even if they did a suppressing spray of fire, they could only cause minor damage. The only way to kill it was to utilize the plasma bombs on themselves, perishing together with the alien.
One soldier came up to Trion and reported urgently, “Colonel, not good! Another 4 has appeared!”
At the street ahead, 4 bug-eyed aliens with a perfectly-evolved body for killing appeared, stalking towards them with heavy killing intent.
Regardless of the life form, there was no way one could maintain a maximum speed of travel for long. Even Yue Zhong, in his Type 7 realm, could only last half an hour if he charged with his maximum speed. He could absorb the atmospheric energy but it would not change the fact that there was a limit.
The speed of the aliens was not exceptionally fast normally. However, once they came across a prey or enemy, they would burst forth with incredible speed.
Trion looked at the 4 incoming aliens and turned pale as he cursed, “Damn it!! 4?!”
4 aliens, once they exploded out with their brutal nature, there was little chance of survival for Trion and his men.
One of his subordinates stepped forward, “Colonel, let our squad head up! We will use the same method to wipe them out!”
Trion fell silent before nodding heavily, “Alright!”
All of a sudden, there was a sound of despair, as one soldier pointed to the direction of the earlier explosion, “Shit!! Colonel!! Look!!”
Trion turned to look, only to discover the earlier alien wobbling out of the epicenter with heavy injuries, and missing one bladed-arm.
Seeing this, Trion was filled with despair, “Damn bastards, are these freaks unkillable?!”
The rest of the soldiers also had expressions of despair. The terror of the aliens had far surpassed their imaginations. It was as there was nothing that could kill these freaks, facing such enemies could cause anyone to break down.
The injured alien shook itself before recovering quickly. It then shot a cold glare at the remaining team.
A sense of doom weighed down on Trion and his men, as their hearts pounded furiously.
Right at this time, 5 bloody radiances shot through the sky, slicing through all 5 aliens.
A shocking scene then occurred. The aliens that had taken the sacrifices and price of lives without being able to kill were suddenly reduced to dried up corpses.
Trion sucked in a cold breath, “Shit!! Strong!! Is that something a person can do?”
Yue Zhong then descended on the ground, waving his hand and recalled the bloody radiances. They hovered around him, joining 5 others, and the 10 floating blood beams gave him an impression of an evil god.
Yue Zhong then swept his gaze towards Trion, whose heart pounded once more, “He saw me!”
Soon after, Zhang Xuan arrived, gazing at the revolving bloody radiances with a look of envy as he spoke, “Brother Yue Zhong is truly amazing, what kind of art are you cultivating?”
Yue Zhong chuckled, and made something up, “It’s called the Blood God Manual.”
Zhang Xuan frowned, “Blood God Manual… within the records of the top 10 cultivation techniques, there doesn’t seem to be such a manual.”
Yue Zhong changed the topic unhurriedly, “Brother Zhang, I think that our task on hand is pretty urgent, don’t you think> We should deal with these aliens.”
Zhang Xuan smiled, “That’s true.”
Yue Zhong then grabbed out in the direction of Trion, as the atmospheric energy wound around Trion and pulled him over towards Yue Zhong.
Seeing this, Zhang Xuan was taken aback, “Strong! Is this psychokinesis or some other technique?”
Trion stared at Yue Zhong, suppressing the fear as he reported his name, “Sir! I’m Trion, the commander of Cleansing Wind City’s 1st Response Force.”
Yue Zhong replied, “Trion, I’m Yue Zhong. I hope that you can bring your men to maintain security over here, leave the aliens to us.”
Currently, it was extremely chaotic in Cleansing Wind City, with countless humans fleeing while some sought to rob and plunder in the chaos. The Saint Lands obviously had not much experience in dealing with such situations. They sent most of their fighting force to deal with the aliens, but no one was left to deal with the rising chaos from within.
Trion responded immediately, “Understood!”
At this time, Zhang Xuan’s smiling face turned solemn as he yelled, “Not good! Tang Xi and the rest had just met with trouble! We have to and help them!”
Chapter 820: The Terrifying Alien and Despair!
On a field, a bladed-alien, a spider-alien, an alien with multiple claws, and a human-shaped alien had boxed in Tang Xi and her subordinates.
A white energy shield was covering them.
Under the protection of the shield, Tang Xi held up a jade plate with a pale expression, as the Type 6 nucleus inserted within the jade plate glowed brightly.
Some distance away from the energy shield, there were a number of female corpses, each of them torn apart, their dead eyes still showing a look of horror and despair.
In the sky, multiple beams of light rained down on this region, blasting all around the shield, hoping to force the aliens away.
As for the 4 big aliens, they continued to strike the energy shield while braving the blasts from the airships above.
Each of them had the strength of a Type 6 expert, with every blow, the energy shield shook violently, threatening to collapse at any moment.
The jade plate in Tang Xi’s hand was slowly starting to dim.
She thought with her teeth gritted, “These aliens are truly terrifying! They’ve actually reached the Type 6 stage, 4 of them no less!”
She had thought that the cleanup operation was going to be easy. However, after slaughtering a few of them, these 4 Type 6 aliens suddenly charged out from nowhere and began to slaughter them back. They lost a dozen Saint Land soldiers in an instant. Had Tang Xi’s reaction not been fast enough, activating the shield quickly, they would have all lost their lives.
One of her subordinates suddenly stood up with her sword, speaking resolutely, “Saint Envoy, the shield cannot hold out much longer, please escape! We will buy time for you! We hope that you can avenge us!!”
“Yes! Saint Envoy!! Please flee!!”
“Let us buy time for you!”
The rest of the elite beauties of the Saint Land stood up, their eyes blazing with a resolute will.
Tang Xi held a high position in all their hearts, having received her grace and pointers. This time, they had also been saved due to her fast thinking. Most importantly, none of them had any confidence of outrunning those Type 6 aliens.
Tang Xi snorted lightly, her gaze turning to the distance, “There’s no need to say anymore. I will not leave. In any case, our reinforcements have arrived.”
Following a loud roar, a dragon image descended upon the area, clamping down on the spider-alien at the back.
“Junior Sister Han, I’m here to save you!”
“Flowing Thunder Palms!!”
Following a volley of powerful winds, lightning, thunder, and ice, Murong Wang brought his subordinates as they appeared, attacking the spider-alien.
“That’s great! Senior Brother Li is here!!”
Seeing the appearance of Murong Wang and his men, Tang Xi and the rest teared up in relief. After all, no one would welcome death so easily.
Murong Wang channeled his dragon image to hold the spider-alien firmly, as the sharp wind blades and bolts of lightning struck it.
The spider-like alien had a green shell, and it stared at its assaulters coldly. With a strong tug, it immediately got out of Murong Wang’s grasp. It then shot off at a high speed, causing a cloud of dust to rise behind it.
Even so, it was struck by one of the lightning bolts. At the same time, one of the wind blades managed to tear through its shell, causing a deep gash. Corrosive blood began to flow out. While the defense of the Type 6 alien was not to be trifled with, it could not withstand the full might of a Type 5 expert either.
If there were enough numbers, Type 5 experts could make use of their advantage to overwhelm a Type 6 expert too.
Having suffered such an attack, the 8 legs shuddered and quickly began to shoot out transparent silk from within its body.
One Saint elite charged forward with his light blade, only to be sliced up noiselessly by that silk.
There seemed to be a chain reaction, as right after that first elite was killed, another 3 following behind also died.
Murong Wang roared out in rage, “Watch out! Its silk is transparent and hard to detect!!”
As he shouted, he waved his long blade to slash and slice up that silk.
The Saint elites were elites after all. They employed their techniques and began to break the silk, avoiding further casualties from that death trap.
All of a sudden, the alien with multiple claws suddenly turned to charge towards Murong Wang and his team.
Within a short breath of time, it had already caught up with one Type 5 elite, slashing out with its claw and decapitating the soldier before he could even react.
Immediately after that, the alien flickered and appeared in front of the various members of Murong Wang’s team, taking them out one by one.
In a few seconds, 6 of the elites had already been decapitated by the alien.
At the same time, the human-alien had changed targets, charging towards one of the Saint elites, clawing through his heart and digging it out.
It also opened its mouth to shoot out its tongue that penetrated the head of the soldier.
Facing the assault of these 2 Type 6 aliens, the Saint elites were distracted.
The moment their attention was diverted, the transparent silk that had not been cleared up entirely suddenly went taught, instantly slicing up 4 of the soldiers.
Everything happened within a few seconds. A third of Murong Wang’s team was wiped out, causing him to be extremely furious, “Damn beasts!! Go to hell!! True Dragon Annihilates the World!”
With his roar, his back glowed brightly, as a dragon tattoo flew out, letting out a howl towards the skies. It then coiled around behind him, its eyes filled with an unimaginable danger and ferocity. A powerful pressure began to exude out of him.
Murong Wang was usually an initial-Type 6 expert, but upon utilizing this technique, his might was heightened, reaching the peak of Type 6.
The True Dragon Annihilates the World was one of the top 10 techniques in the Saint Lands. Only a rare few heaven-defying geniuses could cultivate it.
Tang Xi and Zhang Xuan might both be Type 6 experts, but they had never cultivated any of the top 10 techniques It was because of this that Murong Wang had grown accustomed to feeling a sense of pride and lofty status. Other than a few other opponents within the Saint land, he was basically invincible.
As he channeled the technique, his eyes flashed dangerously, before charging towards the spider-alien.
In response, the spider-alien began to spit out tons of spider silk at him. If one was not careful, they could easily be sliced up by that attack.
He bellowed out and the blade in his hands swung in a frenzy, causing the spider silk to be chopped up. He appeared in front of the spider-alien and slashed out viciously.
A 10m-long blade beam slashed down on the spider-alien, cutting it in two, as its blood splattered everywhere.
At the moment Murong Wang killed the spider-alien, the bladed-alien that had not made any move disappeared, reappearing in front of Murong Wang with a cold glare, slashing out viciously towards him.
The bladed-alien had chosen the best time to attack, as Murong Wang had just given his all in the attack. Furthermore, it had lashed out with superior speed and strength, intending to take him out.
However, Murong Wang was experienced, and with a swift motion, he brought up his left shoulder to defend.
Unfortunately, the blade came down, slashing through Murong Wang’s left shoulder, slashing directly all the way to his abdomen, almost cutting him in half diagonally.
Receiving such a strike, Murong Wang’s complexion was extremely bad as he pulled out a jade plate to channel his strength within.
A huge shield appeared, knocking the blade away.
Seeing Murong Wang also retreating to within his own shield, Wang Hao and the rest turned ashen. They had to face the 3 remaining aliens, where even one took Murong Wang all he had to kill.
While Type 5 experts were domineering existences outside, against these Type 6 aliens, they were just lambs for slaughter.
The bladed alien, multi-claw alien, and human-alien all turned to eye the remaining people coldly. At this time, a number of aliens also gathered from everywhere else, increasing the total number to over 20 within a breath.
3 of them were enough to wipe out everyone present. Now that there were an additional 20, including 2 Type 6 aliens, such a terrifying scene would be enough to send anyone over the edge.
Wang Hao and the rest of the elites all had looks of despair.
Tang Xi and her subordinates were also pale, their countenances full of fear.
