God and Devil World - Chapter 931-940
Chapter 931: Rescue!
Yue Zhong’s body flashed and appeared on top of one particular scarlet-red, 8m-tall huge ape. He sent a fist down on it and caused its head to explode.
After killing the Type 8 Huge Ape, Yue Zhong continued to flicker through the remaining 5 Mutant Beasts like a specter, sending a fist to each one, directly exploding their heads and absorbing their life force.
Those Type 8 Mutant Beasts were instantly taken out by Yue Zhong, and with a flash of his Storage Ring, the corpses were all absorbed into the ring.
They were ordinary Type 8 Mutant Beasts, and outside of the God-Devil Domain, they could definitely rely on their own strength to take on Yue Zhong. However, since they were caught in the domain, he was able to kill them easily due to their suppressed state.
Only a creature like Agnis would be able to break through the domain with its pure strength.
Inside this mountain range, there were many other Mutant Beasts, and Yue Zhong wiping them out in a short while caused them to be deeply shocked.
Within the domain, he continued to take in the Type 8 life force, some of them weak, some of them strong. The stronger ones among them were near the peak of Type 8, while the weakest was just at the initial Type 8 realm.
The auras of the other Mutant Beasts in the mountain range began to surge, but no one took the initiative to attack Yue Zhong any longer, as they stared at Yue Zhong, while killing any devils and demons that got near them.
Within the horde of Mutant Beasts, there was a rumbling voice that sounded, “Human, keep your domain. Do you want to make use of it to kill all of us? If that’s the case, all the experts of our Raven Valley will treat you as an enemy from now on, and we will go all out to hunt you down.”
Hearing that voice, the rest of the Mutant Beasts still shrouded by the God-Devil Domain also released their auras, intending to intimidate him.
Since Yue Zhong reached the mid-Type 8 realm, his combat strength had a huge increase, and it was easy for him to use the God-Devil Domain to suppress over 20 initial-Type 8 Mutant Beasts. He would be able to take on even a peak-Type 8 Mutant Beast now.
However, the current number of Mutant Beasts in his domain was over 50, and if they were to go all out, there was a chance for them to break out of the domain. If both sides clashed, he might perish.
Yue Zhong’s mind raced, and quickly retracted the God-Devil Domain to about a 3km-radius, as he announced loudly, “No, I did not intend to make an enemy out of you guys. I acted because they took the initiative to attack me first.”
The voice then rumbled out, “In that case, human, please leave. You’re not welcome here.”
The Raven Valley was the playground of these strong Mutant Beasts, none of those with intelligence would like to share their territory with a human.
Yue Zhong chuckled and turned around, flying far quickly. He could sense the might of a Type 9 existence within the mountain range, and it was currently slumbering. If he were to go too far and antagonize that existence, who could be either cultivating or sleeping, then he might be slapped to death.
In a barren plain, there was a Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf with a horn on its head, as well as scales covering its 2m-long body, and it was currently devouring the carcass of a Mutant Deer.
About 20m away from the Lone Wolf, there was a group of 7 young men and women, prowling on the ground. Their rifles were trained on the Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf.
The leader, a young woman who was wearing a green robe, stared fixedly at the Mutant Beast and waved her hand coldly.
Immediately, the killing intent of the 6 other soared as they fired their guns.
Unfortunately, at the moment they fired, the Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf leaped to the side.
Peng! Peng! Peng!
Following the gun sounds, although the Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf had leaped to the side, it was still struck in the abdomen by 2 bullets, causing 2 bleeding wounds.
It was a serious injury, but the Type 3 Lone Wolf had a vicious glint in its eyes, and it disappeared the moment it landed on the ground.
The face of the lead woman changed, as she roared and got on her feet, pulling out a long blade, “Not good! Prepare for battle!”
The expressions of the others also turned ugly, as they quickly leaped up and whipped out their long blades.
At the moment they jumped up, one of the young men let out a piercing scream, as the Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf had already appeared in front of him, biting down viciously on his throat.
One woman with short, blond hair suppressed her fear, slashing out with her combat blade at the beast, “Go to hell!! Beast!!”
The eyes of the Type 3 Lone Wolf flashed, and it disappeared once more, reappearing in front of the woman, and its sharp claws slashed out, directly decapitating her.
As a Type 3 Beast, the Lone Wolf had a strong close-combat potential. The 7 hunters were all also at the Type 3 realm, but against the beast, there was only death.
When the burly man beside the blond hair girl saw her die, he let out an agonized scream, as he charged towards her corpse, “Annie!!”
In just a second, the Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf appeared in front of the burly man as well, its claws stretched out towards his throat.
There was a look of fear and despair in his eyes, and he could feel the call of the death reaper beside him.
At that time, there was the sound of a clear gunshot, as a wound appeared in the head of the Type 3 Lone Wolf, its body crumpling while in mid-air.
The moment the wolf was killed, the remaining 5 people swiveled, staring at the direction of the gunshot in alarm and caution, noticing Yue Zhong wielding a huge rifle as he walked over.
The leader stared at Yue Zhong and barked out loud, while raising her weapon at him, “Stop!”
The rest also brought their weapons up. In the wilderness, in order to hunt, there had been many cases of slaughter even among teammates, where human nature was unpredictable and dangerous.
Yue Zhong kept his weapon while speaking loudly, “Is this how you treat a benefactor? If it was not for me, you guys would have all died.”
Although the rifles of the 5 people could hurt a Type 3 Mutant Beast, it was impossible to leave an injury on Yue Zhong.
When the woman saw Yue Zhong holster his weapon, she heaved a sigh of relief and waved her hands, signaling for the rest to lower their weapons as well. She then stepped forward to introduce herself, “I’m Aisha, a hunter from Adenia Town. Thank you for your assistance earlier and saving our lives. As per the rules of the wild, this Type 3 Lone Wolf is yours.”
One youth behind her spoke out aggrievedly, “Sis Aisha, Annie and Jess had died for this Type 3 Lone Wolf!!”
Aisha frowned and rebuked, “Shut it, Shaq. If it were not for this mister, we would not have been able to best this Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf, in fact, we would have been its meal.”
Hearing that, the rest lowered their heads helplessly. The most important thing about the hunt was always the first strike. If they were unable to take down a Type 3 Mutant Beast in a single strike, then things would usually go downhill. They knew this well. However, it was not comfortable to give away their hunt, even after the cost of 2 of their teammates.
Yue Zhong grinned, “Hello, Aisha, I’m Yue Zhong. I’m a world-traveler. I’m actually in need of a guide as I have just arrived here. You guys keep the wolf, let it be the price of guiding me.”
He had been through so many treasuries of different worlds and obtained plenty of Type 3 Nuclei. One single one was nothing to him.
Aisha was elated and replied, “That’s great! I’ll keep it then. From now on, I will be your guide in Adenia Town!”
Hearing those words, the rest of the soldiers also looked at Yue Zhong more favorably.
To these hunters, a Type 3 Mutant Beast was a decent haul, even if they had to split 7 ways, it was a huge sum of money. It was because of that that they dared risk their lives.
With Aisha’s invitation, Yue Zhong followed this troop back towards Adenia Town.
Chapter 932: Giant!
Along the way, they engaged in idle conversation, and Yue Zhong got to know the 5 better.
The leader Aisha, had short golden hair, her skin a healthy wheat color. She had a sexy figure, her legs long and slender. The other young woman on the team was called Xi Jie, an ordinary-looking girl with a full figure and freckles on her face. The other 3 were men, one of them burly and easy-going. That was Haug. Another one had a bald head, and he was extremely skinny, that was Gru. The final one, who had lost his loved one earlier, looking decadent, was called Sid.
Adenia Town was a small town that had a medieval European feel to it. It was a called a town, but in fact, it was as big as a city on Earth, with a huge 15m-tall wall, as well as a huge moat about 10m wide.
On the wall, there were a few huge cannons, embedded with Mutant nuclei as well as covered by numerous runes. A number of soldiers were carrying the same rifle that Aisha was using, as they patrolled around.
At the city gate, a middle-aged soldier greeted the rest warmly, “Aisha, what did you guys get this time?”
Xi Jie hurried to reply with a proud look, “Uncle Magsay, this time, we got a Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf!!”
“What? A Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf? Are you lying?”
“It really is Type 3 Lone Wolf!!”
“Aisha and the rest actually hunted a Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf! Incredible!”
When the rest all heard that, they gathered around and pointed at the carcass of the Mutant Lone Wolf while discussing in shock.
Yue Zhong stood one side and observed the humans here quietly. With his perception, he could sense that in this town, the most ordinary of person was at the Type 2 Divine Warrior realm. The soldiers guarding at the gates were all at the Type 3 realm. It was apparent that the humans of this world were much stronger.
However, to these experts, a Type 3 Mutant Beast was still extremely dangerous to deal with. It must be known that if a Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf were to get wild, it was not too tough for it to kill even a Type 4 Divine Warrior.
Yue Zhong’s perception was powerful. With a thought, he had already swept through the entire town and understood the strength of the town completely. Most of the people were at the Type 2 or Type 3 realm. The strongest were 4 Type 5 warriors and 158 Type 4 experts. If it were on Earth, this was a considerable strength. However, in this Great God World, it was just a weak town.
Magsay’s gaze landed on Yue Zhong, and he asked Aisha, “Aisha, who is this person?”
Aisha chuckled, “Uncle Magsay, he is Yue Zhong, a world-traveler. He helped us hunt the Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf.”
Magsay revealed a warm smile, “How do you do, welcome to Adenia Town. As long as you abide by the laws of the Holy Sirius Empire, you will be a welcome guest of Adenia Town.”
Yue Zhong had already obtained information from Aisha beforehand, Adenia was a small town of the Holy Sirius Empire, with a population of 200,000.
Yue Zhong chuckled, “I will abide by the rules, and not make things difficult for you guys.”
Magsay nodded in satisfaction, and let the entire team through.
After entering the town, Yue Zhong saw that the buildings within the town were indeed in the medieval Western style. The people walking around the town were of different races and skin color, and most of them were wielding rifles on their backs. Even the kids and women had some form of weapons made of Mutant Beast claws.
All around Adenia Town, there were many savage Mutant Beasts. Many of them were even able to leap over the walls or make use of the water and moat to sneak into the town. After a few of such incidences, the people in town were all wiser and wielded their weapons as an added precaution.
Along the way, Yue Zhong also saw many stands, displaying all sorts of nuclei and materials, and the stallowners were calling out and announcing their items passionately.
Aisha and the 4 others entered a miscellaneous stall and quickly brought out the Type 3 Mutant Lone Wolf carcass, in exchange for 300 Sirius Coins.
The 5 of them split the amount into 9 portions, with 4 parts going to the 2 deceased. They then took the remaining 5 and went on their separate ways.
Aisha swept Yue Zhong a look, “Tonight, why don’t you come with me. However, let me say this first, if you dare have any funny thoughts, don’t blame me for breaking your throat.”
Yue Zhong laughed lightly, “Relax, I will not do anything funny.”
Aisha was an extremely beautiful woman, however, it was not to the point of world-toppling. Yue Zhong had seen his fair share of beauties, and as long as he willed it, he was able to get a few beautiful women to serve him. There was no need to have designs on Aisha.
“Then that’s great!” She snorted, before leading Yue Zhong to her place.
Aisha lived alone in a small 3-storey bungalow. It was not particularly luxurious, but it was clean, tidy and bright. It was apparent that she loved to keep things neat.
Yue Zhong tried asking, “Aisha, I want to ask. I heard that at the center of this world, there’s a sacred place, where all the experts of the world are gathered. Do you know where it is exactly?”
The Great God World was, after all, a place connecting those worlds with a Type 9 expert. In this world, it was filled with secrets and many experts.
Yue Zhong knew nothing about this world, but if he had to guess, there should be some form of a location where such experts would gather, and there would be plenty of technology, weapons, as well as secrets to be obtained.
“There is such a legend.” Aisha lowered her head as she thought, before replying, “In the legends, our Emperor of the Holy Sirius Empire used to be an ordinary person. After he entered the world where those Heavenly Gods reside and obtained their pointers, his cultivation improved swiftly. He then led our ancestors through the wilderness and slaughtered their way out, building a huge city, which expanded over time to become the Holy Sirius Empire.”
Yue Zhong’s eyes brightened up, as he asked hurriedly, “Where is this place where the Heavenly Gods reside, do you know?”
Aisha shook her head, “A lot of people in the Holy Sirius Empire have hoped of getting to that world, but no one has succeeded. I guess that only the Emperor who has lived a thousand years would know where it is.”
Yue Zhong was slightly disappointed, but he still relaxed, “There’s finally a lead.”
He guessed that the place Aisha was referring to was likely where the intersection of the countless worlds laid. The Emperor of the Holy Sirius Empire had likely gone there and made use of the resources to evolve quickly, becoming a powerful expert.
Aisha frowned slightly while reminding him out of goodwill, “Yue Zhong, it is just a rumor. Many have tried to find it to no avail, and had even lost their lives over it.”
Yue Zhong laughed lightly, “Thanks for your concern. Anyway, Aisha, where’s the location of the palace of the Holy Sirius Empire?”
She thought for a moment before replying, “It’s about 3000 li west of our Adenia Town. It’s called Hippoa City.”
Having obtained the intel he needed, Yue Zhong was relaxed and began to engage in idle banter with her, to better understand the customs of the people here.
To Yue Zhong, a distance of 3,000 li was just a day’s journey. After resting a day, he would head there directly.
About 20 li away from Adenia Town, there was a vast barren land. 12 hunters were gathered around a pile of Type 2 Mutant Deer bodies, their eyes filled with joy.
“Haha, 36 deers, this time, we’re rich!”
“With this amount, I can rest well for an entire month! Haha!!”
Just as they were celebrating, there was a rumbling of the ground, as though an entire group of horses was running.
Feeling the shockwave, one hunter turned towards the direction of the sound, and his face turned pale, as he muttered, “Giants… giants!! Many giants!!! Flee!!!”
The rest of the hunters swiveled around, and their faces also turned ashen, their hearts filled with fear.
In the distance, there were a number of savage-looking humanoid creatures, standing about 4 to 6m-tall, their bodies burly and muscular. They were currently running towards the group of hunters.
Their speed was not slow, and although they were huge, their speed was extremely fast. As they ran, it was not much slower than the speed of sound.
“Flee!! Run and notify the base!!”
One hunter turned and screamed, as he headed towards the direction of Adenia Town.
The rest of them also turned pale and quickly fled towards the direction of Adenia Town.
Chapter 933: Man-eating Giants!
There was a strong gust of wind, as an 8m-tall male giant full of muscles suddenly appeared behind a hunter. He reached out and grabbed the hunter in his hands.
The human hunter had a horrified expression, full of despair, as he swiftly pulled out his huge rifle and fired it at the giant, while screaming, “No!! Beast!! Die!!”
There were small bullet holes that appeared on the forehead of the giant. The bullets that could pierce even the toughest of hides of a Type 3 Mutant Beast, barely left a peanut-sized scar.
When the giant was attacked, there was a savage look in his eyes. His other hand reached out to grab the head of the hunter, and plucked it with force, pulling it out cruelly in a shower of blood.
After killing the hunter, the giant then threw the rest of the corpse into his mouth and bit down as fresh blood flowed down his mouth.
That particular scene was actually witnessed by another who was fleeing. His face turned pale, and his breathing turned ragged. He increased his pace, but as a result, he tripped over a stone and tumbled onto the ground.
As he fell, he saw another 5m-tall giant coming towards him. In his fear, he started pissing himself, while his eyes were wide with fear and despair. He began to plead and mutter, “No, no don’t kill me!! Please don’t kill me!! Don’t kill me!!”
There was a savage grin on the 5m-tall giant, and he came up to the hunter, grabbing him and threw him into his mouth, crushing him into two.
The Giants continued to run quickly and approached the fleeing hunters, killing them in savage fashion before eating them.
After killing all the fleeing hunters, they reduced their speed to walking, heading towards Adenia Town.
The high-speed movement to any biological life form would take a lot of energy. Their bodies were incredibly huge, and even if their speed was extremely fast, it was not possible to maintain their speed.
Behind those leading the entire group, there was a dense group of them, all gathered together and surging towards the direction they were headed, eliminating everything along their path.
No matter the life form, as long as it was moving, and within their vision, they would be grabbed and thrown into the mouths.
Of the 12 hunters, there was one who had a special movement ability, and he managed to escape their encirclement.
The human hunter charged all the way towards Adenia Town, as he roared out madly, “Man-eating Giants!! There are Man-eating Giants currently on their way here!”
“What?! Man-eating Giants?!”
“Are they coming?”
“Are you kidding?! Man-eating Giants are the most savage and cruel of man-eating entities out there!”
Hearing the report, the rest of the people at the city gates were in chaos and panic.
Within this Great God World, there were many terrifying beasts, with no shortage of Type 8 Mutant Beasts. However, a Mutant Beast was not likely to leave its territory and wander around. After all, there was plenty of other Type 8 powerhouses, once it leaves, it could easily become prey for others.
With so many powerful entities, as long as humans did not antagonize them, they would not stir trouble with what was considered ant-like existences to them.
However, there were certain races that loved to prey on humans. These were termed as man-eating races. Among them, the Man-eating Giants were the vilest and foulest of races.
As the hunter finished reporting, there were rumbling sounds from behind, as the first of the giants appeared on the horizon.
When the guards at the gate saw the giants, their eyes flashed fear as they quickly shouted out, “Giants!! The giants are here!! Quick!! Go inform the mayor!! Inform the mayor!!”
The hunter that was still running back to report screamed out with fear and despair, “Save me!! Save me!!”!
Everyone saw clearly, as a huge, 10m-tall giant with disheveled, golden hair rushed up to the hunter, and grabbed him. She ignored his struggle and directly popped his entire body into her mouth, her teeth gnashing together and the hunter died amidst loud bone cracking sounds.
Seeing that cruel scene, the soldiers at the gate were all frightened out of their wits, their faces pale. Many of them even started vomiting.
After swallowing the human cruelly, the golden-haired giant turned her head, revealing a grotesque and twisted smile.
By now, the soldiers screamed out in fear and panic, as they fled into the town. They could only pray that the soldiers on top of the wall could hold off the giants.
The wall commander trembled as he shouted out, “Close the gates, open fire!! Open fire!! Blast those bastards to death!!”
Under the orders of the wall commander, the soldiers on the city wall quickly got into position and began adjusting the magic cannons powered by the Mutant Beast nuclei.
With a flash of the nuclei, the magic cannons began firing out at the oncoming giants, punching them full of holes as fresh blood splattered everywhere.
At the same time, many other soldiers were firing their rifles at the giants, as the bullets rained down upon them.
However, those bullets that could penetrate the scales of Type 4 Mutant Beasts only served to cut out little bullet wounds. They could not even impede their movement.
Under the bombardment of bullets and cannons, 6 15m-tall giants suddenly launched into a charge at the wall. They ran forward with all their might, reaching Mach-6 speed. They reached the city wall in an instant and sent powerful fists blasting towards the magic cannons and human soldiers atop the city wall.
The 6 giants were incredible savage, with a slap as though they were swatting flies, they flattened a number of magic cannons as well as the human soldiers controlling them.
The moment the giants rampaged, they instantly caused widespread chaos and panic atop the wall.
Most of the rest of the giants reached the front of Adenia Town, and leaped up with all their strength, easily crossing over the wall.
To these Man-eating Giants, a 15m-tall wall was nothing.
Adenia Town was surrounded by the city wall, but it was never meant to defend against these giants, instead, it had been prepared for low-level Mutant Beasts.
“Giants are here!!”
The Man-eating Giants leaped into the town, and immediately, there were screams and cries from within.
The people were running around amok like headless flies, their combat strength straw-like in front of these giants.
Right at this time, Xi Jie came barging into Aisha’s bungalow, screaming, “Sister Aisha! Something’s terrible had happened!! Giants!! Man-eating Giants have invaded the town!! Let’s flee quickly!!”
Aisha’s face turned pale, as she pulled out her rifle quickly, running out, “What?! Man-eating Giants?!”
Yue Zhong followed closely behind, and with a thought, his strong perception swept out to cover the town, and he could sense the strength emitted from those giants.
Some were weak while others were strong. The bigger ones were obviously stronger. Those at the 3m-height range had the strength of a Type 4 Divine Warrior, while those at the 15m-range were at the Type 6 Divine Warrior realm. There were even some 40m-tall ones, possessing a strength of the Type 7 realm. Some over a hundred meters were at the Type 8 realm.
This horde of giants was easily over hundreds and thousands, of which, those above a hundred meters tall were about 13. This was not a force an ordinary town like Adenia could hope to withstand.
After sensing the strength, Yue Zhong could not help but be shocked, “Strong! These giants, there’s actually 13 Type 8 Giants!! This Great God World truly contains experts.”
Chapter 934: Type 8 Giant!
A Type 8 expert would easily be an overlord in any world. Yue Zhong had been to the Mech Empire, and within the empire, there were only 8 Type 8 experts.
However, upon reaching this world, just the Raven Valley alone already had so many Type 8 experts. A single clan of Man-eating Giants already consisted of 13 Type 8 powerhouses. It was evident that this world contained so many more Type 8 experts.
After walking out of Aisha’s bungalow, what greeted them was a hellish scene. A number of giants were rampaging around Adenia, slapping the buildings and demolishing them, grabbing people and amidst horrific screams, swallowing them.
All of a sudden, Xi Jie looked into the distance, and screamed out, “That’s Haug!! No!!!”
In the distance, a 7m-tall giant had grabbed Haug, who was wielding his rifle and directly shoved him into his mouth. With a loud snapping sound, Haug was bitten cleanly in two, as fresh blood and organs came spilling from the side of the giant’s mouth. It was incredibly gruesome.
Xi Jie saw her comrade consumed by the 7m-tall giant, and her eyes were filled with fear. Her legs trembled uncontrollably and a puddle of yellow urine came out uncontrollably.
Aisha’s eyes revealed a frenzied expression, as she readied her weapon and began firing at the eyes of the 7m-tall giant, “Beast!! Beast!! Beast!! Go to hell!!”
With the gun sound, the right eye of the giant went blind, revealing a bloody hole.
The giant twisted to look towards the direction of the gunshot, his face vicious and enraged.
When she was stared at by the giant, Aisha, for all her years of hunting, was instantly enveloped by fear, and goosebumps appeared on her skin. Her legs also began to wobble, and she had no way of moving.
Xi Jie was ashen by now, and crumpled to the floor, trying to crawl away as she sobbed, “Ah!! Don’t kill me!! Don’t kill me!!”
The giant instantly charged towards their direction madly.
With each movement of the giant, the entire ground trembled. Huge footprints were embedded into the ground, and in 2 breaths of time, he had already reached Aisha, reaching out to grab her, who was still frozen in shock and horror.
Due to his speed, Aisha could not even react fast enough, just watching the giant approach her.
At the moment where she felt a strong despair, there was a flash of a blade, and the right arm of the giant was chopped off, as fresh blood poured out.
The blood of humans and the giants were different. The 7m-tall giant was bleeding black blood, and that murky color was pouring out like a waterfall after its arm was sliced off. It was truly shocking.
The person who had chopped off the giant’s arm was precisely Yue Zhong.
After slicing off the giant’s right arm, Yue Zhong’s Wings of Hope unfolded, and he wielded his alloy blade, charging right atop the giant’s head. With a mighty cleave, he sliced around its head, and the entire head of the giant rolled.
The moment the headless carcass fell, a huge source of life energy entered his body.
He relaxed slightly, “Seems like their weak point is their head.”
Against Agnis, he had utilized all his strength in order to destroy its head, but it had not affected anything. Instead, it was still able to retaliate strongly, thus, Yue Zhong had truly learned his lesson.
Aisha saw Yue Zhong killing the giant, and her eyes were filled with shock and excitement, “It’s Yue Zhong! He was able to kill a Man-eating Giant?! That is too formidable!!”
“Aisha, go evacuate, I will kill those giants.”
Yue Zhong spoke this sentence, and with a flash of his wings, he soared towards the direction of the giants.
Seeing the 7m-tall giant killed instantaneously, 8 other giants who were hunting the humans whirled around and quickly charged after him.
Aisha saw them and screamed out despite her fear, “Watch out!!”
One giant was already hard to deal with, even if all the experts of Adenia were to act, they would have to pay a huge price to hunt a single giant. This time, 8 of them had gone after Yue Zhong. The strongest of Adenia would have perished under such an assault.
At this moment, Yue Zhong transformed into 8 different clones, as they flickered and appeared atop the 8 giants respectively, as the heads of the giants fell in a shower of blood.
Aisha saw this and was shocked, “Strong!!”
After managing to kill the 8 giants, Yue Zhong waved his hands, as his Blood Radiances soared to the sky, before transforming into a huge blood cloud, that rained down upon his enemies, filled with an intense bloodthirsty feel.
As the rain fell and landed on the bodies of those giants, any one of them who was 15m and below were instantly sucked dry of their blood and water, leaving only a dried corpse.
After the blood rain absorbed the blood of the giants, they seeped out of the bodies and floated back into the blood cloud in the sky.
Numerous giants were being assaulted by the insidious blood rain, and in a short span of time, over 6,000 low-level Giants were already reduced to dried corpses.
“Is this the strength of a human expert? You dare kill our warriors, go to hell!!”
Among the giants, there was a particular one who was over 160m tall, his entire body scarlet red, and he had many runes carved all over his body. He looked at the blood cloud in the sky with a savage glint and spat out at it.
In an instant, a huge pillar of fire burst out towards the skies, aiming for the blood cloud.
As the flames and blood came into contact, there was a sizzling sound, as the size of the blood cloud got reduced, and smoke billowed.
The perfect counter to the Blood Manipulation ability was flame or even lightning, anything that has purifying properties. As long as it was targeted with those abilities, the blood cloud would suffer a decrease in strength.
Under the burning of the flames, the blood cloud was shrinking at a speed visible to the naked eye.
Another giant, who was over 200m-tall, whose body was also covered in runes, and in fact, he looked like his entire body was made of jade. He spoke up, “A-Huo-Gu did well. He is precisely the bane of such an evil art. Once we break through the blood cloud, we will be able to charge through this human town and eat them all!! As for the expert behind this cloud, I will tear off his limbs and watch him struggle in pain, before eating him alive.”
This jade-like giant was the largest and tallest among the 13 of the Type 8 giants. He was also the strongest, at the peak of the Type 8 realm, with barely a step into the Type 9 realm.
Another one, who was about 140m, with taut muscles and his entire body looked incredibly lean, as though he was a sharp blade waiting to be unsheathed, “A pity, there isn’t any strong human in such a small, rural town. If we can consume another 10 or so Type 8 humans, A-Huo-Gu should be able to break through to the half-step Type 9 realm.”
A-Huo-Gu laughed savagely, “It’s not easy to find Type 8 humans. As long as I can consume another 300 Type 7 humans, it will be the same. I want to eat up all of the experts in this human kingdom, I should be able to break through all the same. At that time, we will be able to take on another human kingdom.”
The Giants were just like any other species, consuming others to become stronger or replenish their strength. It was due to this that they were a nomad race, constantly wandering around to hunt humans. While other species were nourishment to them, humans were the true ingredients for them to evolve.
Many low-level giants would consume a large number of humans to evolve faster. To these Type 8 giants, there was no point in consuming ordinary humans. They had to devour more powerful experts for there to be some effect.
“All you bastards, go to hell.”
Following a spirit-like voice, the entire world seemed to dim, as the Devil Domain enveloped the Type 8 giants, bringing with it a powerful, demonic atmosphere.
The crux of this battle was these 13 Type 8 giants, if they were dead, the rest of the giants would follow suit.
Chapter 935: 3 Giants!
Yue Zhong’s appearance was too sudden and caught unprepared, 10 of the Type 8 Giants were instantly caught within the Devil Domain, assaulted by the endless devilish manifestations.
In an instant, Yue Zhong flickered in front of the flame-using giant, his fist punching out on the head of the Giant.
The strength of his Third Order God-Devil Body burst forth, directly causing the head of the flame-using giant to explode in a shower of blood and flesh.
A huge amount of life force was also absorbed into Yue Zhong, as the corpse crumpled to the ground.
At the same time that Yue Zhong launched that sneak attack, the jade-like giant roared out in rage, as a powerful jade Domain appeared around him, shining resplendently with different colors, and blocked the assault of Yue Zhong.
Besides the jade giant, there was one other with blades growing out of him. His eyes flashed dangerously, as a Domain comprising of blades appeared, clashing towards Yue Zhong’s God-Devil Domain.
There was also a 180m-tall one whose strength was not that far off from the jade-giant, his face seemed to be made out of stone. With a thought, all sorts of boulders and rocks appeared in a domain around it, smashing against Yue Zhong’s God-Devil Domain.
Only the talented of the Type 8 powerhouses could comprehend domains after understanding laws. Among these 13 Type 8 giants, only 3 of them had comprehended domains.
Those who did not, were enveloped by the God-Devil Domain, however, they did not panic. Instead, they started roaring with rage, like wild beasts, as they gathered their strength and started hammering the edges of the domain.
A Domain might be powerful, but there was a limit. Once the threshold was broken through, then the Domain would crumble as well.
The abilities and powers smashed out at Yue Zhong’s domain, causing the demons and devils to dissipate, however, they had no way to breach his God-Devil Domain.
Since he gained the Third Order God-Devil Body, Yue Zhong’s God-Devil Domain had become more than a hundred times stronger than it was when he was a Type 7 Divine Warrior. The struggling Type 8 giants were unable to threaten his domain.
‘Break for me!”
In an instant, Yue Zhong teleported to a 135m-tall giant, who could channel wind blades. He sent a fist out at his head.
With a loud bang, the wind-manipulating giant had his head destroyed in a shower of flesh and blood.
Although Yue Zhong was small and miniscule to these giants, with his Third Order God-Devil Body, his strength was above these giants, and he was able to explode with a strength more terrifying than them in close-combat.
Seeing the wind-controlling giant killed by Yue Zhong in a second, another agile giant stepped up, bursting forth with a speed that surpassed most other Type 8 powerhouses, appearing beside Yue Zhong in the next instant.
As Yue Zhong was about to be captured, he willed it and disappeared from his location, and the giant’s grasp closed in on thin air.
The next moment, Yue Zhong had already appeared on top of that giant, his gaze cold, as he sent out a powerful fist down on the head of the giant. It immediately burst the head of the giant apart.
Within the Devil-domain, Yue Zhong could easily teleport to wherever he liked. Inside the domain, he was invincible.
“He can teleport with his domain, everybody, watch out!!”
There was a serious glint in the eyes of the jade giant now, as he roared out and channeled his Jade Domain out at Yue Zhong’s God-Devil Domain.
Most Type 8 powerhouses with domains would prefer to use their domains to clash against their opponents, this was the only known method to take down the opponent, by brute force.
If the disparity in strength was huge, the other party might be destroyed in a single hit.
As the 2 domains clashed, the Jade Domain was constantly shrinking. Yue Zhong’s God-Domain Devil was not spared either.
The Jade Giant was a peak-Type 8 powerhouse and had understood the principles of jade. Although it was not as strong as compared to Yue Zhong’s God-Devil Domain, it was not weak either.
As for the Blade Giant and Stone Giant, the both of them continued to channel their domains to smash against Yue Zhong’s God-Devil Domain.
The 3 Type 8 powerhouses set their domains against Yue Zhong’s, with both sides slowly wearing each other down.
Yue Zhong ignored the 3 of them, instead, he continued to flicker around like a phantom, taking out the giants one by one by pummeling their heads, bursting their heads.
These giants might be at the Type 8 realm, but within Yue Zhong’s God-Devil Domain, they were reduced to single opponents, with no means of gathering and working together, and could only be slaughtered by Yue Zhong one by one.
By the time he was done killing the rest of them, his God-Devil Domain, as well as the domains of the 3 remaining domain-capable giants were all destroyed together.
Their strength was above the rest, and although their domains could not compare to Yue Zhong’s, with their joint attacks, they were able to wear Yue Zhong’s domain down, at the expense of their own.
“Human, you dare kill our comrade!! Damn you!! I will not let you off!! I will definitely tear you apart and eat you alive!!”
The Jade giant saw the rest of the giants dead by Yue Zhong’s side, and his eyes had a vicious glint. He let out an enraged roar that shook the entire region, as he sent a powerful fist containing the laws and principles of jade, towards Yue Zhong. Under that strike, the entire surroundings seem to freeze into a jade-like world.
When the Jade Giant got enraged, his combat strength was stirred to the maximum potential, and the region around him transformed, allowing him to reach the height of his power.
In the Giants’ clan, any Type 7 and above giant would already possess human-like intelligence, but only the Type 8 ones would refer to one another as comrades.
Their group had developed for so long, and only managed to produce 13 Type 8 giants. In an instant, 10 of them had been annihilated by Yue Zhong, causing the Jade Giant to go into a fit of rage.
Against that attack, Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed coldly, as he controlled the Wings of Hope to flap once. The energy around his stirred, and he disappeared from his position, dodging that punch by the Jade Giant. He then appeared on top of the Blade Giant, sending out a fist at his head.
“You want to kill me? Not so easy!! Break!!”
The Blade Giant roared out in indignation, and his killing intent soared. Without any intention of dodging or evading, right at the moment Yue Zhong got close, a powerful blade shot out from him, bursting towards Yue Zhong.
In that short distance, facing that dangerous attack, Yue Zhong basically had no way to evade or dodge. His eyes flashed with a serious glint, and he twisted his body, controlling the Wings of Hope to soar slightly up, as he sent a fist towards the head of the Blade Giant.
A powerful strength burst forth, and the head of the Blade Giant also burst apart. However, it was not before he had summoned his strength to sent out a sharp blade from his head, while locking the space, to slash out at Yue Zhong, preventing him from escape.
At the most critical moment, Yue Zhong’s left shoulder tensed, as a huge shield appeared in front of him.
The blades of the Blade Giant slammed into the shield, causing a huge sound of impact. Under the imbued power of laws, the bone blade sliced through the shield after barely one second of being stopped, as it continued and sliced through Yue Zhong’s left arm. Golden blood began to flow from his wound.
Making use of that opportunity, Yue Zhong quickly flashed away.
When the Stone Giant saw how the Blade Giant was killed in an instant, he could not believe his eyes and was shocked, “How is that possible? A-Ren-Gu was so strong that his laws could even injure a Type 9 expert. How could this human be able to withstand it?! How is he so tough?!”
The Blade Giant was also one of the most heaven-defying geniuses of their generation, and while it was only at a height of 140m, it already possessed combat strength of a high-Type 8 powerhouse. Also, with his comprehension of a domain and his blade technique, he could injure a Type 9 powerhouse easily. Yet, his strongest strike had been unable to kill Yue Zhong. This was the reason for his shock.
The Jade Giant roared out once more in grief and rage, disappearing from his position, and reappearing behind Yue Zhong’s back. He sent a fist towards Yue Zhong while yelling, “Do not fear, A-Yan-Gu, he is an Oracle. As long as we consume him, we can possibly evolve into the Type 9 realm.”
The Stone Giant also leaped forward, his own fist carrying stone laws, turning the surrounding into stones, intending to capture Yue Zhong.
The 2 of them joined hands, their power bursting out, locking everywhere around them, preventing Yue Zhong’s Wings of Hope from flying away.
Against this joint attack, Yue Zhong revealed a cold look. Without retreating, he shot forwards and sent a Yin-Yang Palm, causing an entire palm to materialize, capable of blocking the sky, as it slammed downwards at the 2 giants.
Chapter 936: Defeating the Giants!
Following a powerful blast, the ground shattered apart, as the resulting shockwave spread outward. The punches that were filled with the laws of jade and stone directly fell apart, and the remaining force dispersed.
When the remaining force from jade-laws touched the ground, the region transformed into jade as well as stone, from the resulting stone-laws as well. Many giants could not dodge in time, and were turned into jade-sculptures, or stone-hard statues.
As for the Jade Giant and the Stone Giant, the both of them were struck by the recoil, and spat out a mouth of blood.
Yue Zhong’s Yin-Yang Palm was also scattered, while his person was sent flying about a few hundred meters. He spat out a mouthful of gold blood. At the same time, the left side of his body began to petrify, turning into jade, while the right side, stone.
He flashed and charged towards the skies, and brought out a vial of Type 9 Mutant Beast blood to gulp down, “Damn it!! These giants are truly difficult to deal with!”
Any one of the 13 giants, even the Jade Giant, Yue Zhong had the confidence to deal with them one by one, without exerting too much energy.
However, if any of them were to join hands, the threat they represented was very different. Yue Zhong had already killed 11 of them, and he was already expended. Facing the combined efforts of the Jade Giant and Stone Giant, there was no guarantee that he could walk out unharmed.
“He definitely cannot be allowed to escape!! If he flees, the next time he appears will be our death!! Quick, chase and kill him!!” The Jade Giant’s face fell, as he roared out in rage. The atmospheric energy gathered around him and he stepped into the air, turning into a beam of light as he chased after Yue Zhong.
This time, the 2 Giants were able to injure Yue Zhong gravely, it was because Yue Zhong had expended so much of his energy to kill the other 11 giants. If he was allowed to recuperate, they would likely suffer. After all, the combined 3 domains of the Giants could not even dominate Yue Zhong’s God-Devil Domain. If it were just the two of them, no matter how they tried, they would not be able to flee from the domain.
The Stone Giant also quickly channeled the atmospheric energy and stepped through the air, chasing after Yue Zhong like his life depended on it.
Both sides were on a hunt, and quickly travelled more than 60km.
After Yue Zhong finished that vial of blood essence, his strength quickly recovered, and the slowly hardening sides of his body ceased, as he sent out a force to shatter them.
At that instant, he suddenly turned around, and executed the God-Devil Domain once more, directly enveloping the 2 giants.
When they were caught in it, the eyes of the Jade Giant flashed with fear, as he roared out madly, “How?! We broke your domain!!! How could you cast it so fast again?!”
A domain was a huge part of a Type 8 expert’s strength. Once it was broken, then the Type 8 powerhouse would usually suffer some form of a backlash and be weakened over a period of time, unable to cast it.
Only a domain could counter another domain, and the Jade Giant was unable to execute his domain within such a short period of time. The moment they were caught in Yue Zhong’s God-Devil Domain, there was only death.
“You can take your questions with you to death!”
A cold glint flashed past Yue Zhong’s eyes. In that instant, he appeared on top of the Jade Giant, and sent a fist down on his head.
“You can’t kill me!!! Turn into jade for me!!”
Bellowing out in rage, the Jade Giant began to channel his energy comprising of jade laws, causing a huge jade plate to appear, as he merged into it, and charged towards Yue Zhong.
With a thought, Yue Zhong reappeared on top of the Stone Giant, and his fist continued down towards the head of the Stone Giant.
Following a huge impact, Yue Zhong’s fist slammed into the head of the Stone Giant, his immense strength bursting forth, causing a 1m-deep hole in his head, as parts of the giant shattered, but it was not enough to kill him in one blow.
There was something both giants had in common, which was that their defenses were powerful, even Yue Zhong could not possible kill them off at one go.
The Stone Giant roared out, as his strength burst forth, both hands grabbing his head. Stones began to surge out from his body, replenishing the wound that Yue Zhong caused, “I will not die!!”
The 2 giants did not waste any more energy to attack, instead, devoting it to strengthening their defenses. Their combat experience was rich, and they knew the stronger the domain, the more taxing on the user. Yue Zhong’s God-Devil Domain was definitely powerful, and it was impossible for it to be maintained it for long.
Yue Zhong had a strange glint in his eyes, “Stone Giant and Jade Giant, I can offer you a way out. Submit to me, work for me, and I will not pursue whatever you’ve done in the past. If you reject, then there’ll only be death.”
A crafty look passed in the eyes of the Jade Giant, as he pretended to hesitate, and did not say anything. The Stone Giant also fell silent.
“Not replying, that means you’re not interested. Since that’s the case, you might as well die!”
Yue Zhong saw them keeping quiet and did not bother waiting. With a thought, he stepped into the God Domain, as the angelic beings and holy manifestations went into his body, his strength surging and reaching the high-Type 8 realm.
After that, he retracted the God-Devil Domain, and sent out the Flames Domain, as the 2 giants found themselves suddenly enveloped by powerful flames.
The Flame Domain was the strongest in terms of offense, and against the 2 giants, whose defenses were perversely high, it was the perfect counter.
While in terms of might, the God-Devil Domain might be stronger than the Flame Domain, but the consumption was too high. Furthermore, it was not as concentrated on damage as compared to the Flame Domain, which sought to incinerate everything and anything.
The moment the 2 giants were enveloped by flames, they felt their bodies turning red, as crackling sounds occured.
The Jade Giant’s face turned in horror, “This is a Flame Domain!! Flee!!”
The Jade Giant gathered his energy and tried to charge out of the domain. After all, the Flame Domain did not have a sealing ability like the God-Devil Domain.
The Stone Giant also readied himself, preparing to charge out.
However, at that instant, Yue Zhong, who was enveloped with the God-Devil Flames, had already soared in front of the Stone Giant, and he charged straight at him in the form of a blazing pillar.
Following a terrifying explosion, the Stone Giant was actually blasted apart in multiple pieces, as well as countless shards, and a huge life force went into Yue Zhong.
After destroying the Stone Giant, Yue Zhong’s Wings of Hope appeared in a flash, and he shot towards the Jade Giant.
As he reached the air space above the Jade Giant, there was a crazed look in his eyes. The Jade Giant roared out at him, “Damn human, let us perish together then!!”
In that instant, the Jade Giant began to detonate his jade laws, and a powerful explosion occurred, blasting outwards.
“Damn bastard, he actually self-detonated!!”
Facing that sudden suicidal attack, Yue Zhong’s face changed. He brought up his remaining right arm to block in front of him, while the Wings of Hope churned quickly to bring him backward.
There was a bright bloom of a cloud in the shape of a mushroom, as everything within a dozen li was covered by countless jade pieces.
Under that resplendent light, the entire region turned into jade, and every single living thing caught in the radius became jade sculptures.
After the cloud dissipated, there was a sculpture that fell from the sky, landing on the ground, and causing a huge ditch.
It was precisely Yue Zhong himself, and half his body was already petrified into jade. The residual jade laws and energy were still trying to invade his body, and everything below his waist had already transformed into jade.
He took in a deep breath, gritting his teeth, as he took out another huge container of Type 9 Mutant Beast blood, downing it, “Damn it!! That damn Jade Giant was a mess to deal with. Even in death, he cost me so much!”
As he absorbed the energy from the blood, he forcefully repressed the invasion of the jade energy, however, within a short span of time, he could not purge out the jade energy from his legs.
That Jade Giant was almost half-step into the Type 9 realm. His self-explosion was indeed terrifying. Had it been anyone else, they would have been killed or turned into a jade sculpture. Even a Type 9 powerhouse would not get out of it unharmed. The fact that Yue Zhong was still living was incredible.
“I wonder how Adenia Town is doing?”
He willed it, and a handful of nano-mechanical cells came out from his right hand, enveloping his legs, forming 2 mechanical legs. Once they were formed, he quickly shot back towards the direction of Adenia Town.
Chapter 937: Wiman!
Along the way, many dead giants could be seen, each and every one of their corpses dried and emaciated, having been killed by the blood cloud.
The rain cloud was like a pesticide, killing a huge number of the giants. However, there were still a few powerful Type 6 giants who were still surviving and wandering around.
The blood rain might be effective against the low-level giants, but hardly against those high-level giants.
Since the 13 Type 8 giants, who were the leaders, had been killed, the rest of the giants fell into chaos. Some of them charged towards Adenia Town, continuing to rampage, while others separated and fled for their lives.
As Yue Zhong made use of the mechanical limbs to support himself back to Adenia town, he noticed that the chaos was still present, and most of the human survivors were already evacuating.
Inside the town, a dozen giants were still hunting down humans, as they gobbled up their unfortunate victims one by one.
Yue Zhong controlled the Blood Manipulation to contain the rain outside of Adenia town. Had he not down that, then Adenia Town would have been a dead town, and no one could have survived.
If he controlled it himself, it was possible to prevent the rain from culling human lives. However, as he had to focus on the Type 8 giants, the rain had no way of discerning friend from foe.
The remaining human soldiers were being led by some of the experts of the town to hunt down the other low-level giants.
One 4m-tall giant was walking along the streets of the town, when suddenly, it stopped in its tracks and came up to a house. He then slapped the roof away, revealing a mother-daughter pair within.
The 2 ladies were shivering in fear, as the giant’s expression contorted to reveal a savage grin, and he reached out to grab them.
Peng! Peng! Peng!
All of a sudden, there was a burst of gunfire, as the bullets punched into the body of the giant, instantly creating thousands of holes on his body.
The giant whirled around, seeing a burly man charging out at him with a 2m-long alloy blade, slashing down at his head. In a splatter of black blood, the giant’s head was chopped off and rolled to the ground.
The burly, middle-aged man swept the mother and daughter pair a look of concern, “Are you guys alright?!”
The mother cried out, thanking the man, “We’re ok! Wiman, we’re ok, thanks to you!! Thank you!!”
Wiman spoke in a low voice, “You guys had better escape too. We’re not a match for these giants. We can only buy some time for Y’all.”
Wiman was the top expert of Adenia Town, although he could easily kill a 4m-tall giant, there were too many stronger giants out there in Adenia Town. Each of those who were above 10m in height could easily kill him. Not to mention that there were some over 50m.
Those taller than 50m had the ability to cause massive destruction to Adenia Town.
Hearing Wiman’s words, the mother and daughter quickly scrambled out of their house, heading for the outside of town.
Right at this time, there was a scream of horror, “Help!! Wiman, help!!”
Wiman turned around, only to see his good friend grabbed by a 30m-tall giant not far away, who was about toss him into his mouth.
The dozens of guards of the town were wielding their weapons firing madly at the giant, and the bullets struck his body, to no avail, unfortunately.
The giant then placed Wiman’s good friend in his mouth, closing it with a loud crunching nose as he swallowed it amidst a savage grin.
When the rest of the soldiers witnessed this cruel scene, they were all pale from fear.
Many of them turned immediately, throwing their weapons aside, fleeing to the distance madly. Their fighting spirit was thoroughly broken.
Wiman’s eyes were filled with despair and rage, as he led the experts beside him charging towards the giant while roaring, “No!!! Altair!!”
The 20 elites beside Wiman followed him as they charged at the giant.
The 30m-tall giant laughed savagely, turning his body and running right at Wiman. His strength was fearsome, and by running at full speed, he was able to reach 6-times that of the speed of sound.
At almost a split second later, the giant had already appeared in front of Wiman mysteriously, reaching out to grab him.
With a loud crack, the giant squeezed with strength, and there was a loud cracking sound of bones breaking from Wiman’s body.
“Let Wiman go!!”
The other human elites quickly rushed at the giant, letting out furious roars.
The giant looked at the humans running towards him and he smiled savagely, slapping out with his left hand, sending one of them flying, smashing into walls, turning into a pile of mashed meat from the impact.
Seeing their comrade’s gruesome death, the rest came to a halt, their bodies trembling from fear, with no courage to get closer.
In front of this giant, they were truly ant-like existences.
After slapping the human in front of him to death, the giant smiled viciously at Wiman, opening his huge and smelly mouth, intending to bite down on him.
Wiman stared at the mouth in despair and fear, he had never been so close to death before.
At the moment right before he was placed into the mouth, there was a bright flash of light that slammed through the head of the giant, bursting it apart.
The moment he died, Wiman fell out of the slackened grip, as he turned to look towards the direction of the white light.
“Uncle Wiman, are you alright?!”
Under his astonished gaze, 2 young women wearing enhanced Mech armor, wielding A-Grade Particle Cannons came running towards him. They looked like futuristic soldiers.
Wiman stared at the 2 familiar girls and asked with slight disbelief, “Aisha, Xi Jie, is it you?”
As the top expert in Adenia Town, Wiman had also trained Aisha before. He knew her well and knew that before today, she definitely did not possess such equipment.
Aisha spoke somewhat proudly, “It’s me!”
Wiman asked curiously, “Aisha, how did you guys get this equipment? It doesn’t look like anything from our Adenia Town.”
The other soldiers who had been trembling with fear and helpless earlier had looks of envy, as they stared at the equipment of the 2 ladies. They could tell that they were extraordinary.
Aisha and Xi Jie had only been ordinary Type 3 hunters prior to this, however, with that equipment, they could blast a 30m-tall giant to death. The might of the equipment was apparent.
“Yue Zhong gave these to us!” Aisha replied quickly, before frowning, and said, “Uncle Wiman, we’re going to hunt the remaining powerful giants. We’ll leave the lower-level ones to you guys.”
Wiman replied swiftly, “Alright, rest assured, we’ll handle the low-level giants.”
He and his team had confidence in dealing with the giants lesser than 10m-tall.
As they were about to go on their separate ways, Wiman asked suddenly, “Aisha, who is Yue Zhong?”
He was wary of someone who could take out such advanced technology. To have a random powerhouse with such equipment appear without any reason, it was hard for him not to suspect Yue Zhong.
Aisha frowned, when suddenly she felt a feeling, and looked towards the distance at a 70m-tall giant, pointing, “Uncle Wiman, look for yourself, that’s Yue Zhong.”
Wiman and the rest of the elites of Adenia Town turned to look at the giant, only to see Yue Zhong walking through the air, in an instant appearing atop the giant’s head and punching downwards.
With a loud blast, the head of the giant burst apart in a shower of blood.
“Holy!!! Is that a human?!”
“Monster!!! He must be a monster!! He actually killed a 70m-tall giant in a single punch!!”
Wiman and the rest saw this and were shocked beyond disbelief. Their gazes were fixed upon Yue Zhong, only to see him flickering continuously, appearing on top of the giants above 50m, and with each punch, he took out one giant. Their heads would burst apart, turning into a pile of minced meat.
Wiman watched Yue Zhong kill those giants, as he let out a long breath, with a complicated gaze, “Too strong. To kill such powerful giants so easily, only the legendary Emperor could do so. Seems like Yue Zhong’s strength is on par with the Emperor.”
Chapter 938: Jody and Lina!
The moment Yue Zhong acted, the remaining giants in Adenia Town were killed quickly.
Even if he was fighting with his mechanical makeshift limbs, the lower-leveled Type 7 giants were not his match.
After wiping them out, the town people began to stream back into their homes under the guidance of the mayor.
Within the mayor’s home, the mayor, Visni greeted Yue Zhong respectfully, “Mr. Yue Zhong, thank you for acting to save us. This is a small token of appreciation, please accept it.”
After those words, the soldiers beside brought out a number of chests, revealing piles of gold that could turn a man blind with greed.
When Aisha and Xi Jie saw the gold in the chests, their breathing became haggard and their eyes shone with desire. They had never seen such wealth in all their lives.
Yue Zhong swept a look at the chests, grinning slightly, and with a wave of his hands, a bout of energy whisked them all up, channeling them into his storage ring.
He waved his hands once more, as he gathered a few thousand coins, forming 2 huge piles in front of Aisha and Xi Jie each, “These are yours. You guys had done quite a lot for the town as well.”
To Yue Zhong, the gold was not of much use, after all, he did not plan on settling down here.
Xi Jie immediately grabbed the fortune in front of her, her eyes flashing with delight, as she laughed out in excitement, “Oh my God!!! I’m rich!!! Sis Aisha!!! I’m rich!!! Haha!!”
Aisha looked at her own pile, her eyes also harboring hope. However, she controlled her own greed, as she spoke to Yue Zhong, “Yue Zhong, I hope to make use of the gold to purchase the set of equipment you loaned us earlier.”
The equipment was a powerful mech armor, and she was in love with it. If she could have such a suit, then she was invincible within the town.
Visni also swiftly spoke up, “Mr. Yue Zhong, I also hope to purchase a few sets of equipment from you. Please state a price, and Adenia Town will do its best to fulfill your requirements.”
The Great God World was truly cruel, with numerous savage beasts and all sorts of monsters. One could only feel safe with a strong backing or capital.
Yue Zhong was able to allow those 2 Type 3 experts kill Type 6 giants. That equipment was extremely alluring to Visni, if he could get his hands on a few, their town would be bolstered by a lot.
Yue Zhong rejected it instantly, “I’m afraid not, I only have about 10 of that equipment.”
Hearing those words, Aisha and Visni had a disappointed look.
Visni then spoke, “Since that’s the case, forget it. However, I have one more request that I hope Mr. Yue Zhong might be so kind as to agree.”
Yue Zhong arched his brows, “What is it?”
This time, Yue Zhong had killed off the giants in the town, and one of the more important reasons was that there were Type 8 giants among the invaders. He could hunt Type 8 giants to power up, and it was not too much of a trouble for him, that was why he was willing to act. If he was requested to stay in the town to guard them over a long period, he was not willing.
There was an expectant look on Visni’s face, “Mr. Yue Zhong, since you already defeated the invading giants, we should not be bothering you further. However, these giants are a group that band together and are incredibly vicious. Since so many of them had died here, there would be even more giants coming to attack us. We hope that you can stay here to help us.”
If they had such an expert protecting Adenia Town, then they were sure to be safe.
Yue Zhong frowned, and rejected coldly, “Sorry, I’m just passing by. I will be leaving soon. I can’t stay long. You had better evacuate the people towards the capital. They should send men to protect you right?”
Yue Zhong had too much on his hands back on Earth, and he would not stay in this small town to be a bodyguard.
Hearing those cold words, everyone’s face fell. Without him, there was no way they could defend against any of the giants.
Visni had a perplexed look, as he asked, “Mr. Yue Zhong, will you reconsider?”
If the inhabitants of the town had to move, then most of them would lose a lot of their assets. Along the way to the capital, it was not as if the route was entirely safe. If there were other man-eating species, then they would be at risk of being wiped out too.
Yue Zhong stood up to walk out, “I’ve made my decision. Goodbye, Mayor Visni.”
Seeing Yue Zhong leave, Aisha and Xi Jie quickly took up their gold and made to leave, chasing after him.
Aisha looked at Yue Zhong, her eyes flashing with a strange look as she asked, “Yue Zhong, are you really not staying?”
Yue Zhong had saved her life and was the hero of Adenia Town. In her heart, she was already starting to have feelings for him.
He replied solemnly, “No, I have things I need to do.”
She fell into silent thoughts at that.
Just then, Yue Zhong lifted his head abruptly and looked toward the distance, his eyes flashing strangely.
In the skies, there was a fleet of 12 battleships that were flying towards them, each of them strange in shape, and had different sizes.
Among them, 10 of them were more than a thousand meters long and had numerous particle cannons. They were surrounding 2 others which were over tens of thousands of meters long, which had a main cannon each. The main cannon was over 30m large in diameter, carved with strange runes, and exuded a powerful pressure.
The direction of the 12 battleships was Adenia Town. They were flying fairly fast, at over 3 times the speed of sound, and were soon above the town itself.
The battleships then opened their doors, revealing hundreds of human soldiers who were equipped with mech armor and wielding particle cannons.
These soldiers were flanking 2 young men and women, who were being treated in high esteem, as well as guarded by over 30 powerful experts in mech armor. They soared out on a mechanical platform, looking elegant and noble, with a hint of pride in their bearing.
They were both sporting golden hair, their bodies and looks exquisite. The female had an alluring figure, and her skin was fair and smooth, with a beautiful face.
There was a rumbling voice that announced their arrival, “The great Prince Jody and Princess Lina have arrived!”
Once the voice sounded, Visni immediately came out of the mayor’s house, staring at the 2 esteemed royalty with a look of idolization and excitement on his face. He fell to his knees and bowed, as he spoke in a clear voice, “Visni greets His Highness and Her Highness. For the both of you to grace Adenia Town with your presence, it is our eternal pleasure and honor. Long live Sirius Empire!!”
“Long live the great Holy Sirius Empire!!”
“The Emperor did not abandon us!!”
“This is great, the great Emperor did not abandon us!”
“Long live the great Holy Sirius Empire!!”
Hearing that voice, all the survivors of Adenia Town looked up at the 2 royals that had arrived, their eyes filled with the same fervor and excitement.
At this critical moment, when the danger has yet to pass, the Prince and Princess had actually visited, which gave the inhabitants of the town higher morale, and their favorable impression of the royal family increased.
Yue Zhong took a look at them, his eyes filled with a strange glint, “Are they from the Sirius Empire then? Good timing.”
He had originally intended to head to the capital to find the emperor, to enquire about the point where the worlds met. If he could gain the information from the 2 royalty in front of him, then he had no need to head there.
Jody descended from the sky, asking Visni with somewhat an urgent tone, “Visni, where is the hero that dealt with those Man-eating Giants?”
In Adenia Town, there was equipment capable of long distance communication. In fact, every town and city of the Holy Sirius Empire had some form of telecommunication between them. It was just that only the higher-ups could utilize them.
The moment Jody and his entourage had heard of the events in Adenia Town, they had rushed over, in order to meet with the powerhouse who had killed the giants.
Visni was slightly taken aback, and felt bitter until he turned and saw Yue Zhong walking over. Overjoyed, he pointed to him, “Your Highness, it is him who had killed the invaders and protected us! He is called Yue Zhong!”
His words came out, and everyone swiveled to look at Yue Zhong, their eyes filled with respect.
Even Princess Lina had a curious gaze as she looked at Yue Zhong carefully.
Chapter 939: Holy Heavens!
The Man-eating Giants were one of the most dangerous predators of the human race, and their might was no joke.
The guards of Jody and Lina were the elite troops of the Holy Sirius Empire. As the elite guards, they had undergone countless battles against other species, and not one of them were not aware of the terror of the Man-eating Giants. Each time those giants appeared, at least thousands or even tens of thousands of them would perish.
With every 10 battles against those giants, the elite guards of the Holy Sirius Empire would lose 9 of them. They could barely deal with a group not amounting more than 30,000 of them, and only if there were no Type 8 existences.
Now that Yue Zhong appeared, a single person who could defeat an entire group of giants. Such strength was only seen in the Emperor himself.
When Jody saw Yue Zhong, his eyes brightened, and he went up to him, bowing deeply, “Hello, Yue Zhong, I’m Jody, pleased to meet you. Here, I represent the 300,000 inhabitants of Adenia Town to thank you for your help.”
Seeing Jody’s demeanor, the elite guards were all appreciative and their respect and respect for this prince of theirs increased.
The Emperor of the Holy Sirius Empire was still living all this while, and his children numbered over 300. Among them, many of them were arrogant and despotic, some stupid and even lecherous.
With a gentlemanly charisma, as well as his attitude in his learning and treatment of others, Jody was considered one of the rare few. Thus, he was widely liked and many protected him.
Yue Zhong saw the warm Jody, his impression of him also favorable as he chuckled, “Hey, I’m Yue Zhong, pleased to meet you too.”
Lina stepped forward, smiling in a charming manner as she stretched out her fair and dainty hand, “I’m Lina. It’s nice to meet you, Yue Zhong.”
Yue Zhong smiled politely, and shook her hand gently as well, before releasing it, “Beautiful princess, it is an honor of mine.”
There was a strange look in Lina’s eyes as she smiled coquettishly at him.
Jody extended an invitation warmly, “Yue Zhong, let us head to our battleship to talk more.”
Yue Zhong agreed, “Sure!”
A beam of light cae down, and landed on the group, instantly bringing them up into the battleship.
Within the lavish living room of the enormous battleship, Yue Zhong, Jody, and Lina were seated on a sofa, while a number of pretty women dressed in military uniform came serving refreshments, and placed them in front of the 3 of them, before leaving the room.
Jody had a strange look as he directly asked, “Yue Zhong, did you come from the Holy Heavens?”
Yue Zhong frowned and asked, “Holy Heavens? What is that place?”
Jody and Lina exchanged glances, obviously taken aback, before he continued curiously, “If you’re not from the Holy Heavens, then where are you from? Doresini Empire or Zumton Empire?”
Yue Zhong casually weaved a tall tale, “I have no idea where I came out from. I just know that the place I stay is about 10 times the size of Adenia Town, and there was a border around our area that no one could cross from where I came from. I had activated some statue by accident and was sent here. Adenia Town was the first human town that I came across.”
If this lie was spoken on Earth, few would believe it. However, the Great God World was different. There were too many experts and all sorts of backgrounds. In fact, his tale sounded extremely believable.
Jody nodded, “So that was the case. In our Great God World, there are simply too many hidden lands, you must have come from one of them.”
From the surface, it looked as though he had believed Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong continued asking, “Oh yea, what is the Holy Heavens?”
His intuition told him that it was an extremely important place. It seemed as though there were many other experts like him, otherwise, Jody and Lina would not have asked if he was from there right away.
Jody did not hesitate as he revealed the truth, “The Holy Heavens is a holy land of our human race in this Great God World. There, many experts from all corners of the world are gathered. Most of Type 9 experts or half-God characters are a part of the Holy Heavens. They are focused on protecting the human race from the other powerful species that threaten our existence. In truth, our Sirius Empire is a part of them as well.”
“In the Holy Heavens, the experts are truly aplenty. Many of those heaven-defying geniuses could easily wipe out a horde of giants. It was because of this, that when I heard that you had dealt with the invasion, I had automatically assumed you were from the Holy Heavens.”
Yue Zhong was moved when he heard this, “Holy Heavens? It seems that I need to make a trip there to check it out.”
With the experts there, there were sure to be many Type 9 powerhouses. If he could go and exchange some pointers with those experts, then it would be of great benefits to his growth.
Yue Zhong continued to ask, “Where is the Holy Heavens? Are there any conditions for joining it?”
Jody chuckled lightly, and handed a small chest the size of a palm to him, “There’s a map here, and there are markers to the place. The first condition of joining the Holy Heavens is to be a human. The second, a power level of Type 5 and above. Once you fulfill these 2 conditions, as well as going through a round of interviews, you can join the Holy Heavens. Lina and myself, we are also part of the Holy Heavens.”
Yue Zhong received the box, and his heart relaxed slightly. He smiled and his impression of Jody improved further, “Many thanks!”
Jody spoke warmly, “Don’t mention it, Yue Zhong. In the Holy Heavens, there are 5 main districts, namely the East, West, South, North, and Central Temples. We belong to the Northern Temple. If you do join the Holy Heavens, we hope that you can consider joining us too. That way, we can fight side by side.”
Wherever there were people, there were sure to be strife. Within the Holy Heavens, with so many experts, they had likewise, formed their own groups and associations. Jody was treating Yue Zhong warmly in the hopes that he could join them, thus relying on one another.
Yue Zhong chuckled, “Not a problem!”
He was not sure about the life here, and he needed to acclimatize himself as quickly as possible. With Jody’s help, he would save the time and trouble.
There was a look of joy in Jody’s gaze, “That’s great to hear then.”
Lina, who had been smiling at the exchange between the 2 men, opened her mouth, “Yue Zhong, the Giants always had the habit of converging as long as one of them was not killed, and manages to report back to the others. There would be other waves of giants assaulting this area soon. Please assist us in purging them.”
Yue Zhong laughed slightly, and shook himself, as a few pieces of jade dropped from his body. He then spoke, with a hint of self-assured confidence, “Not a problem! Let’s go kill those giants now. As long as we can find their gathering spot, I can take them all down.”
With the passing of time, the jade energy that had been suppressed was finally forced out by his body, and he was already recovering at an astonishing speed. As long as he had a day’s time, he would be able to regain his peak strength.
If it were any other Type 8 powerhouse, who had suffered such an attack, most would need a few dozen years, or a hundred even, to deal with a wound that contained laws and principles of any nature. It was only Yue Zhong with his heaven-defying Third Order God-Devil Body that allowed him to purge the foreign oddities from his body.
Jody also laughed out in confidence, “Alright, leave the locating of the enemies to me!”
With that, he pressed a button on the watch he was wearing, before issuing an order as naturally as a ruler, “It’s Jody. Convey my orders, immediately search for locations of the enemy, target, the Giants!”
With that, the huge battleship opened up, as a number of satellites were released into the skies, and when they reached an altitude of about 20,000m, they extended swiftly, forming huge radar-like satellites, floating in the sky while conducting surveillance on the grounds below.
At the same time, a number of unmanned drones the size of 2 basketballs flew out from the battleship as well, soaring outward in all direction to search.
Under the 2-pronged surveillance, a detailed and informative report of the terrain and region around was gathered.
Within an hour, Jody laughed out loud, “The tracking is complete, the location of the giants is about a 100km away from here, deep within a forest. Let’s head there now.”
Yue Zhong looked at the battleship and its capabilities and was shocked. He could not help but ask,” Jody, it seems that the technology of the Sirius Empire is incredibly advanced. How come Adenia Town is so backward?”
The Holy Sirius Empire was obviously not backward in its technology, yet, Adenia Town seemed to be on par with Europe of the Middle Ages. This was something that Yue Zhong could not understand.
Jody sighed, as he laughed bitterly, “My father feels that only by abandoning technology, that the human potential in cultivation can be unearthed. Therefore, other than the capital, most of the cities lack any form of technology.”
Chapter 940: Wiping out the Giants!
After hearing Jody’s explanation, Yue Zhong finally understood why there was such a huge difference in technology. He also understood why the Emperor would do such a thing.
Earth, before the apocalypse, was also an advanced world, with lack of cultivators and martial artists. It was not because the people of today were less smart, but because the effectiveness of such skills was not as comparable as a technologically-advanced world.
A martial artist could train for an entire 20 years but would be easily taken out by some small-thug with a bare proficiency in firearms wielding a gun. Under such circumstances, few would actually take the time to train. Furthermore, in the past, a person could easily win a small-scale war with their own prowess, that was why there were more cultivators in the past.
It was precisely because of this that the Emperor of the Sirius Empire would ban technology for all the cities and towns. However, the usage of such equipment was important in a war, that was why the central army was equipped with such highly advanced stuff, hence, creating an imbalanced image.
Yue Zhong was an outsider and was in no position to comment on the strategy. He smiled and did not continue harping on the subject.
The 12 battleships flew over a dense and thick forest, which was formed of numerous huge trees that were easily over hundreds of meters tall. There were even some that extended beyond 200m and 300m.
The forest covered a huge portion of the terrain, and one could hear the roars of wild beasts from within.
“It’s right here, Yue Zhong. Let me clear the rubbish for you first.”
With a chuckle, Jody gave an order through his watch, “Execute the plan immediately!”
“Begin the plan immediately!”
Under Jody’s orders, the huge cannon on his battleship, that had a 30m-diameter, lit up with its countless runes glowing, as a huge form of energy gathered in the cannon.
After 10 seconds, the mouth of the cannon lit upm and a huge, light pillar of over 3km blasted downwards at the huge forest.
Under that assault, everything within the diameter of the light beam was instantly vaporized, revealing a huge, ugly, hole within the dense forest.
Yue Zhong could clearly see that at the edges of the hole, there were many human corpses.
After firing that cannon, over a hundred elites of the Sirius Empire’s forces flew out of the battleship, equipped with their mech armor and particle cannons.
The moment they appeared, they began firing their weapons into the forest, hitting the many giants who were currently gathered.
Under those probing shots, the giants were all enraged and charged out towards them.
There was a vicious glint in the eyes of one 60m-tall Wind Giant, as he opened his huge mouth to spit out a powerful wind blade, cleaving towards the soldiers.
With a single swish, the huge wind blade went through one of the Sirius Empire’s elite soldiers, slicing him cleanly in two, as blood and organs splattered out.
Another 70m-tall Flame Giant swung out powerfully, sending balls of flames towards the soldiers.
Although the soldiers continued to dodge and evade, one of them was still struck, unfortunately, and he caught on fire while screaming out in agony.
Those giants were not only capable in close-combat, but many of them had abilities of range. It was truly terrifying. Within a matter of seconds, a dozen elite soldiers had already fallen. Had they been any closer, they would have been wiped out.
Jody swiftly gave the order, “Retreat!”
At that, the Sirius Empire elites began to retreat into the forest while firing a few more shots.
They were intelligent and used the terrain to their advantage while dodging the ranged attacks.
With the trees acting as cover, the ranged attacks of the giants lost most of their strength.
As for the giants, they were currently chasing at full speed and in a mad fury.
Almost all the giants with ranged capabilities were throwing everything they had at the battleship in the sky.
The 12 battleships in the skies had opened up their energy shields under Jody’s orders earlier and were rising slowly to evade the attacks.
Inside the ship, Jody observed the giants below and had an incredulous look, “Strange! The giants seem weaker for some reason? There doesn’t seem to be any Type 8 giant holding the fort. What’s going on? Usually, there should be one. How come there isn’t one right now?”
Jody’s army had clashed with the giants many times, and he knew their circumstances well. Now, seeing that no Type 8 giant was chasing after them, he could not help but feel bewildered.
If there were any Type 8 powerhouses giant in their midst, they would have stepped into the air to assault their battleship already.
Lina’s gaze had a strange glint as she said, “What’s strange about it? Since there are no Type 8 giants here, they must have all been killed in the earlier raid on Adenia Town.” She then asked curiously, “Yue Zhong, how many Type 8 giants did you kill exactly?”
Yue Zhong replied mildly, “13.”
When Jody heard that, he could not help but suck in a breath of cold air, and exclaim somewhat “13?!! Are you sure?! You really killed 13 of them?!”
Even Lina had a shocked look.
Human Type 8 powerhouses were known to be weaker than any other race of the same realm. This was common knowledge. Of course, there were human Type 8 powerhouses that could kill other races easily, but these were the heaven-defying talents, who were rare, or they possessed some form of a treasure.
Even among these geniuses, few could take on 10 on their own, killing so many Type 8 giants by themselves.
Such an expert would have so much potential, a peak expert of the human race, and could possibly become a half-God existence.
Jody and Lina had thought that they already evaluated him strongly, but now, they could sense that they had truly underestimated him.
“That’s right!” Yue Zhong laughed, and stood up, before walking out, “Those giants have already left the forest. I’ll go clear them.”
After Yue Zhong left, Lina suddenly asked Jody, “Jody, do you think he was telling the truth?”
Jody signed, his gaze complicated, “Perhaps. He could take on the entire group of giants on his own, this is proof enough of his strength. He doesn’t need to lie to us.”
There was a complicated look in her eyes, as she bit her lips, speaking with some jealousy, “Then, isn’t his strength already on par with the Holy Children of the Temples?”
Jody and Lina were the esteemed Prince and Princess of the Holy Sirius Empire and had cultivated to reach the Type 6 realm. However, within the Holy Heavens, they were just ordinary people. There were so many people who had a strength that far surpassed them.
The Holy Sons and Daughters of the 5 Great Temples were all at the Type 8 realm, heaven-defying geniuses, and the weakest was still so much stronger than Jody or Lina and could view them with contempt.
The Emperor of the Holy Sirius Empire could not compare to any of the Holy Sons or Daughters. Due to his ordinary talent, he was doomed to stay at the initial Type 8 realm for his entire life, with no hope of entering the Type 9 realm. Therefore, he was not as valuable.
Jody had a wise look as he spoke, “Perhaps. Lina, the stronger Yue Zhong is, the more beneficial it is for us. We have to get in his good books and attract him over to our Northern Temple! If he could even become a Holy Son of the Temple, then we would be rewarded more!!”
Lina nodded, she was just slightly jealous of Yue Zhong’s talents, but she was smart, and she knew the crux of the matter, as she turned to look at Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong soared out of the battleship and saw the countless giants running towards him. There were even over 40 Type 7 giants manipulating the atmospheric energy to soar towards him.
However, they were not of the air, thus their speed wasn’t fast.
“Go to hell!”
Yue Zhong stared at them with a cold look, and with a wave of his hands, a bright blood light shot towards the skies, turning into a blood cloud, that started pouring on them.
Within seconds, thousands of them were instantly sucked dry and turned into emaciated corpses.
Jody saw the scene and felt a chill down his back, “What terrifying means!! This Yue Zhong is truly terrifying!!”
