2552 Demon Insect Lock Decoder!
Carly had gone against the will of the Genetic Locks, breaking the egg’s rule. If the egg was going to punish anyone, it should punish Carly. Mexa should not have been dragged in.
It was likely that Mexa and Carly had fainted simultaneously because the egg had issued an order through Mexa and Carly’s Genetic Locks.
It was possible that Mexa and Carly would attack him once they woke up.
Lin Yuan was not afraid of Mexa and Carly. However, if they attacked him, it would be awkward once both of them snapped out of that state. From then on, it would be difficult for them to continue following him.
Mexa was a talented individual whom Lin Yuan had his eye on. He did not want to lose this chance.
He realized that the egg had not immediately acted against him, so he looked toward the stone tablet that was a short way away. This was when he saw that the two Endless Gems were indeed embedded into the center of the stone tablet and that the stone tablet was missing a corner.
Given that the insect empress had been able to break the stone tablet, it meant it was not very hard. Lin Yuan would also be able to break it.
The egg had yet to react to his proposition of a discussion. This meant that the egg was extremely intelligent and was still trying to hide itself.
Hence, Lin Yuan decided to take the two Endless Gems first. Once he combined them and formed the treasure, he would be able to control the other alien insects even if he was still unable to control the egg. This would prevent the egg from controlling the other alien insects through their Genetic Locks.
Once it understood Lin Yuan’s intention, Red Thorn ordered the Abyss Great Emperor to grab the stone tablet.
After knocking Carly and Mexa unconscious, Eternal Source fixed his gaze on the egg at the center of the sacred pool. The instant the egg seemed off in any way, Eternal Source would step in immediately.
Lin Yuan was also paying attention to the egg’s movements and was ready to combine with the Abyss Red Lotus at any moment.
As Lin Yuan’s control over the abyssal world grew, the power he gained when he combined with the Abyss Red Lotus would also increase.
When Lin Yuan used the Abyss Great Emperor to break the stone tablet and obtained the two Endless Gems, the egg continued floating at the center of the sacred pond as though it was devoid of any intelligence.
Lin Yuan had already recorded the strange patterns on the stone tablet. The markings did not register with any language that Lin Yuan was aware of.
He had thought about keeping the tablet, but the Endless Gems were embedded in it. If he did not break it, getting his hands on the Endless Gems would be difficult.
Obtaining the Endless Gems was related to making Morbius whole and controlling the alien insect world. It was a non-negotiable matter.
At that moment, Lin Yuan saw a strange expression come over Red Thorn’s face.
“Yuan, there is something very hard at the center of the stone tablet. I can’t crush it.”
Lin Yuan instructed Red Thorn to bring him the hard item at the center of the stone tablet.
The Abyss Great Emperor used his hand to squeeze the stone tablet and remove all the pieces that could be removed.
A bright, glowing jade tablet was revealed to Lin Yuan.
He was about to begin observing the shape of the jade tablet and the markings that were on it when he realized that he could read the words on the jade tablet.
[Demon Insect Lock Decoder]!
This was likely the name for this jade tablet.
Lin Yuan used his spiritual energy to check on the Demon Insect Lock Decoder and realized his spiritual energy could not penetrate its interior. A special technique was necessary to open the Demon Insect Lock Decoder.
Only the egg floating at the center of the sacred pool would be aware of such a technique.
With this new discovery, Lin Yuan believed it was more likely that this egg was a procedure for revival that an expert had set up for themselves rather than something left by a species from another world.
This also explained why the egg possessed such high intelligence despite not having hatched yet.
Once it became certain it would not be able to impact Lin Yuan, it decided to take control of the two insect empresses through their Genetic Locks to drive Lin Yuan out.
Lin Yuan placed the two Endless Gems in the Spirit Lock spatial zone so that Morbius could combine them.
He said loudly to the egg in the sacred pool, “I’m giving you another chance to talk with me. Otherwise, I’m taking the Demon Insect Lock Decoder away with me. I will use you to nurture a new female insect!”
Lin Yuan’s words caused the water in the sacred pool to begin swirling until a pillar of water rose out of the water, lifting the egg with it.
A charming and amazed voice said from the egg, “You have recognized the Demon Insect Lock Decoder. Are you from the fertile land to the north of the Faerie Institution?”
The voice spoke in a foreign language. This was the same language inscribed on the jade tablet.
If Lin Yuan had not entered the Deep Chasm Sea Eye and obtained the true mermaid legacy through the New Thearch’s Scale, which gave him a deep understanding of foreign languages, he would not have been able to understand what the egg said or communicate with it.
This egg was willing to communicate with him because he understood foreign languages.
This saved Lin Yuan a lot of effort.
He had just threatened this egg. However, in actuality, he would not be able to bear breaking open this egg and use it to nurture a female insect.
This was because the egg’s life rank was far from equivalent to the alien insects.
From the name Demon Insect Lock Decoder, it was a certainty that this egg was a demon insect from somewhere else.
“It doesn’t matter where I’m from. What is important is that I know about your current circumstances. You haven’t been able to hatch. If this drags on, it won’t be of much help even if you can continue instructing these insect empresses to sacrifice alien insects to you.
“I think you can sense that your influence over the alien insects’ Genetic Locks is waning. This method of yours is unsustainable.”
The insect became excited when it realized that Lin Yuan could communicate with it smoothly in its foreign language.
“Tens of thousands of years have passed since I landed in this world. I’m the one who changed this world’s fundamental genes. The alien insects were only produced after I combined my Genetic Lock with this world’s native insects.
“The fact is that the influence of my Genetic Lock decreases as the insects continue to derivate. But if you hadn’t come, I should be able to keep this up for another few millennia without any issues!”
The egg gave a simple description of its situation.
Given that it was willing to discuss its situation, it signified it was willing to communicate with Lin Yuan.
However, the egg had no idea that its description of its situation had utterly shocked Lin Yuan.
Lin Yuan had not expected that the fearsome alien insects of the alien insect world were produced from this demon insect’s genes.
