Chapter 337: The Raid: Part 2
The giant shadow in the plaza roared as it smashed its fist into the head of one of the giant wolves and sent it crashing into the ground.
Just as it was about to launch a kick, another wolf immediately pounced upon him.
The three starting a furious melee and trashed the plaza apart.
Lin Sheng simply looked from afar.
The two giant wolves were transformed into two assistant tutors in Baine University uniform while the large shadow as a monster with two heads, and a wing of pure black.
“What a thick Shade aura…” Lin Sheng sniffed as intrigue appeared on his face.
“There’s at least a few hundred souls of Shades on that bastard’s body alongside dark power and some other energies and materials. Quite a unique design…” Lin Sheng let out a praise, but praises aside, he still needed to act.
He leaped up, and his silhouette flashed passed the Shade Homonculus.
Two beams of pure holy light shot down from the heavens, and blasted through the Shade Homonculus’ twin heads with extreme precision, before secondary explosions ran across its body, tearing multiple burning rents all over.
The Homonculus let out a painful roar as its arm that was outstretched to grab onto one of the giant wolves shuddered violently before falling limply onto the ground.
A moment later, its entire body was reduced into grey dust and flew away with the wind.
In a blink of an eye, a four-meter-tall monster simply just vanished from the plaza, leaving no trace behind.
The two giant wolves flickered as they shrank into two middle-aged men.
“What… What was that?” One of them looked on in a daze at the Shade Homonculus’ prior location and was at a loss on what to do.
“That’s a Shade monster that is almost at Oppressor-class…it just took a moment…” The other person was at a loss too.
Not too far away, Lin Sheng rapidly leaped about toward the largest entrance into Baine University. As he got close, he could vaguely sense the fluctuations of a large number of souls.
“It has to be a soul vessel! And a vessel with a volume way larger than the one I got before! Only such a large vessel could be able to deploy such a large zone of influence!”
After absorbing so many memories, Lin Sheng’s knowledge about the soul vessels was unlike before. He could now sense the soul fluctuations when the vessel was activated and calculate its rough position.
He could even use certain calculation formulas to calculate the strength of the vessel and its release efficiency.
Lin Sheng quickly ran across the buildings, and the closer he got, the more he felt that the vessel was different than the rest.
Compared with the one he got previously, the volume this one had was at least twice the total about he previously got.
“If I manage to get my hands on that, I could possibly break through the next holy power level and reach Level 12! A proper level for a councillor!”
Not long after, he finally arrived at the largest entrance to Baine University, Lewin Park.
The park was pitch black as all of its lightning facilities had been extinguished. There was no sound, no movements, no bird chirpings nor any insects buzzing.
Even the university’s hidden realm entrance could not be detected.
“Has it been closed?” Lin Sheng curiously held his hand out. The entrance that previously would open using a little dark power was dormant. He could sense that a faint frosted glass-like membrane was shrouding the entrance.
“Something is interfering with my senses.” Lin Sheng looked around as a faint golden glow appeared in his eyes.
Soon, a floating orb installation guarded two semi-translucent humanoid forms entered his sight. The three were deep inside the park, unmoving as potent yet bizarre waves emanated out of it, disrupting the dark power senses within the vicinity.
“So it’s here?” Lin Sheng had an idea and decided against using his real identity, so he simply switched to another one.
With a wide smile, he made toward the direction in huge strides.
Just as he stepped into the park, a couple of masked heretics in black clothes appeared from the shadows.
“Who are you? Entry is forbidden here!”
The leading person had two orange flame orbs floating by his shoulder.
The dark power crystal mask on Lin Sheng’s face started twitching as it changed into a mask with a crying face.
He slowly made his way toward the mass of people as a blinding orb of holy light radiated from his right palm.
“I smell the stench of evil…”
The holy light in his palm was getting larger and brighter.
“Kill him!” the masked heretic ordered.
Streams of dark powers exploded into being as dark power threads and flames came flying from three directions.
The scorching green light formed into a massive torrent with a flaming core toward Lin Sheng.
It was a combined attack by at least two digits worth of heretics. They had managed to instinctively detect danger and had unleashed everything they had.
Lin Sheng did not retreat, rather a smirk appeared on his face as holy light ley lines crawled all over his right up like blood vessels.
He then lifted his shoulder as he charged forward while hurling his fist forward.
“Armor of Dawn!”
A light pillar descended upon him as an argent armor took form.
Lin Sheng roared as his fist struck out.
The pure white holy light exploded with the radiance of the sun and engulfed the dark powers.
The light pierced through the thick clouds like the first light after a storm.
The radiance soon faded, and on the surface of the park were only bits and pieces of the heretics’ clothing.
Being struck by the cleansing flame of concentrated holy lights, their bodies were reduced to ash.
“Death to all heretics!”
Lin Sheng recomposed himself as he let out a cold sneer before taking huge strides deep into the park.
The moment his silhouette disappeared into the woods, a few gazes appeared from the streets not too far away from the park.
“That power… that’s like…” A Baine University’s tutor had a conflicted look on his face.
“He only needed one-tenth of that power to defeat those heretics, but that unknown ace instead used ten times the power… That’s just overkill…”
“Thankfully, that person seems to be an enemy of evil, and an ally. Probably some ace living in seclusion wanting his or her peace back,” another person guessed.
It was not too farfetched an idea, as there were a number of aces who upon awakening their dark powers, continued to train quietly as they lived normal lives.
One of the Palatinates of Carta Blanche was like that.
“But that temperament indicates otherwise…” The person before said slightly awkwardly.
The two still had things to say before they suddenly saw a white light blasting out from deep inside the park as a formless shockwave shot out across the park.
“The disruptor has been destroyed? Can it be? Is that person that powerful? There are two Oppressor-class cadres over there…”
The two looked on in a daze at the light and was left speechless.
With the disruption gone, the entrance to Baine University soon reappeared like normal.
“Let’s head to the school!” The two woke up from their stupor and dashed toward the entrance, but another figure was quicker than them as a white flash flickered by and Lin Sheng disappeared into the entrance.
