Chapter 383: The Meeting: Part 3
Kill every living thing that roams down there except the residents—it was the instruction Lin Sheng had issued to the Paladins.
Only those who reached the level of Three Wing were qualified as Paladin, a team leader in the Sanctum. Each Paladin had at least three to ten transcendents under his command. These transcendents were called the patrolmen. Most patrolmen were below the level of Three Wing. And they were many.
The security of the Sanctum was tight, and it went all the way from the top to the bottom. There were no blind spots. The system could respond immediately even if there were high-level, suppressor-class attack.
It never worried Lin Sheng that there would be accident happening somewhere. His main concern was these three men before him.
Lin Sheng stared dead at Nikos and co. But he was no match for the decades of experience and acting skills of these people. He could not pierce into their head to see what was in their minds.
Maybe there were something he had not noticed. Lin Sheng’s face had turned grave. He felt something was wrong.
All of a sudden, a high-pitch alarm sound came from his body; it was his phone. Lin Sheng had linked his mobile phone to the alarm system of the research center. His expression changed. Now he finally knew why these three people were monkeying around with him.
“You all have a death wish!” He rose to his feet, furious.
Tenko Kasumi’s facial expression changed. She got up at once, her body emanating a depressing, cold energy.
“I’m sorry. There is some emergency. Please excuse me” That said, Lin Sheng rushed toward the door.
A figure suddenly came up and stood in his way. “What’s all the hurry? Why not we talk it over? We have just started with the specifics.” Nikos said, holding his staff.
Nikos’s intention was clear; Lin Sheng knew what he was up to now. His heart skipped a beat, and he stepped back.
Tenko Kasumi came up from behind him, face glacially cold as she drew her long sword from her waist.
“Like I said earlier, we should have killed them. We have wasted much time,” Tenko Kasumi barked.
Nikos guffawed and said, “Are you going to fight with me here? If you would like to see the city destructed, you’re free to do it.”
Once the two Palatinates swung into action, half of Henricqal would be destroyed for sure.
“Idiot.” Tenko Kasumi clenched her long sword, sending vibration up the blade. The entire conference room glowed in a faint blue light. The walls, ceiling, and floor suddenly turned icy.
“Do you really think I’m sitting there dozing off?” A gust of chilly wind rose in the room as Tenko Kasumi swung her long sword.
Lin Sheng went round Nikos and lunged towards the window. Before he hit the icy surface, a gap popped open, just large enough for him to pass through. After that, the icy surface closed back up as if there had never been a gap there.
Nikos’s eyes darted around the room, but their movement were minimal. He seemed to be analyzing the icy room for dangers. This was an ability he had never seen before. He judged Tenko Kasumi’s ability through her natural force field. But there was only one way to know for sure: fight.
Nikos seemed unconcern when Lin Sheng got away. So long as he could delay the Palatinate, Tekon Kasumi, his mission was over as far as he was concerned.
The Sanctum had risen too famous too quickly. What happened today was inevitable. In fact, the Sanctum was threatening the very foundation of Carte Blanche. Their anger was a natural reaction.
“Tenko Kasumi, are you just keeping us here because you want to fight us?” Nikos wondered.
Tenko Kasumi grinned. “Do you think I’m kidding?”
She raised her sword horizontal at chest height. The blade lit up with blood-red magic patterns.
“Hidden Sword: Flash of Thounsand Cuts!”
The ice on the walls, ceiling, floor, and everywhere extended and deformed before shooting out countless blue sharp knives at the three men.
Nikos’s expression collapsed.
As soon as Lin Sheng left the conference room, he saw a red glow in the direction of the research center. Half of the sky above the lab had turned red.
He gritted his teeth. When dark energy and Holy Power burst out from under his feet, it blast a big hole in the ground. Lin Sheng had disappeared from the scene.
As Lin Sheng flew, streaks of white Holy Power spread on his armor. His dark energy no longer transformed into thread, but in the form of a crystal warrior. He shot forward and came into one with it.
Something seemed to grow.
Ringer shattered the armor of a Paladin, his body covered in the blood of whom he had killed.
Meanwhile, his company had killed over ten people, who were all Paladins rushing to the scene.
“Is it ready yet?” Ringer asked.
“Ten more seconds.” One mate answered.
They did not expect things to happen so quickly. Their company on the outside had not managed to set up a teleporting circle. The minute they stepped outside, waves of Paladins were charging at them.
“Get ready, everyone!” One said.
“10, 9, 8, 7, 6…”
Ringer smashed the chest of a Paladin, his body glowing in a red halo. All of a sudden, a twin-headed python lunged out from the halo and knocked out two enemies that came up from behind.
“What happened?” The countdown had stopped at six.
Ringer looked back, his eyes out on stalks and goosebump all over his skin. A white armored arm had punctured the chest of his mate, who was in the midst of preparing the teleporting circle. Blood were oozing out and flowing down his body and legs and formed a stream of blood on the ground.
The white armored arm lifted the body in the air and flung it to the icy ground not far away.
But this was not the thing that stunned Ringer. His eyes were glued at the pair of dark-green, muscular arms growing on the back of the killer.
So there were a total of four arms, all glowed in a white light with four pure white swords of Holy Power on them.
“The fight was over the moment I arrived.” While speaking, Lin Sheng struck the four swords together in the air.
Ringer froze. He lost his senses for a second. He was feeling a deadly terror fall upon him. By the time he came out from the daze, the four-armed armored man had come up before him. In an expanse of white, he saw four white swords struck down from above.
