Lin Sheng threw out a holy light and healed the wounded patrolmen below. As he got out of the raided place, Lin Sheng did not stay and instead returned straight to his lab.
The magical Rubik’s cube in his hand was a little weird.
And that Azem person, he was too calm. While he had shown signs of shock at first, but the longer it got, the calmer he had gotten.
When he reached the lab within the range of the Sacred Ground, the faint, inexplicable aura of the Rubik’s cube started to weaken.
Lin Sheng performed a simple set of tests with the instruments he had and detected nothing.
Aside from it being indestructible, everything else was normal.
Yet, what he did not know was when he brought the Tricolor Rubik all the way back, black humanoid creatures with glowing red teeth started appearing all across the Blacktide around Henriqcal.
With extreme speed, these monsters rushed and struck the defensive line formed by both the Holy Sanctum and Baine University as soon as they appeared.
*Tick tock, tick tock…*
A hail of bullets blasted out from the gun barrel, ripping into a swarm of black monsters.
The monsters were ripped to shreds and fell limply onto the ground, completely still.
But soon, more and more monsters continued to appear from the Blacktide.
To the left flank of Henriqcal City, the Holy Sanctum defensive line.
“They are resurrecting…!!?” a commander asked as he looked closely with his binoculars.
“That’s not resurrection, it’s just a core regeneration.” Another commander shook his head. “We have enough manpower. No matter, continue to press on. We have holy light to deal with the injuries, and the thick armor provides maximum protection.”
“Right. Let’s sent a few teams to probe then.”
Not long after, in the middle of the battle, three commando strike teams with three members each were quickly established.
The three members guarded each other’s backs as they charged into the swarm of monsters as they unleashed dark and holy powers in a deadly dance of death. The moment there were wounded, the team would retreat and another takes its place.
Once the three three-man teams joined together, it was like three steel redoubts that were anchored firmly on the ground they fought.
The monster’s attacks were like a breeze before their faces and gave them no pressure.
At the same time, other locations in Henriqcal City began to field those full-body tin cans as a basis to resist the monsters.
That was because reality had proven the holy power’s strength, as the monster swarm broke against the Holy Sanctum line and were instantly annihilated.
Among the five types of monsters that had appeared, only the black humanoid monster was the most hated of foes, simply because they could not be killed.
Even when their bodies were shattered they could still reform into a whole new body.
So at that defensive line where the numbers of monsters were just about right, it was a suitable training grounds for the students.
And so-called storm, ended with as quickly as it came.
Lin Sheng returned to the lab, and after waking up, the first thing he did was to shove the Tricolor Rubik into a fully enclosed metal box.
He then locked the box and threw it into the freezer.
After confirming everything over his side, Lin Sheng made tried to make contact with the Thunderbeast.
The Thunderbeast was based in the Xylond headquarters. With the Night Lord holding the fort, there should not be a problem. So he was not worried.
It was just news from the other side that surprised Lin Sheng a little.
“A Palatinate had come over and called himself the second seat of the Sevenlocks Tower, Aelfe. He broke into the Holy Sanctum this morning, and was taken out by His Excellency the Night Lord right away,” the Steel Lord reported matter-of-factly. “A Palatinate? The Sevenlocks Tower? Them again…” Lin Sheng frowned.
Ever since the battle at the gates of Baine University, conflict had deepened between the Holy Sanctum and the Sevenlocks Tower.
Besides, the Sevenlocks Tower had been causing the Holy Sanctum trouble several times in a row already to date.
“There’s nothing wrong with this side. We’ve caught a little rat who can manipulate the monsters into attacking.”
Lin Sheng had a sudden realization.
With more monsters now, he could obtain even more souls, it was just that he need for souls were far less urgent now that he had his breakthrough.
1Nevertheless, if he wanted, he could summon out a large number of souls at any time although they were chaotic souls that were difficult to absorb. “Tower, collect all the data of the battles that have taken place today,” Lin Sheng ordered.
“Collection complete,” the female voice module responded.
Using his mind, Lin Sheng summoned out a series of displays before his eyes, before pulling everyone else over to look at them as well.
Since their souls were all linked together, he only needed to share it out.
Soon, Lin Sheng found what he wanted, before pulling up the records of the fighting the day before.
“Yeah, comparatively, their strength had increased by at least three-fold. With such a short span of time, someone must be up to no good.”
However, looking at the holy warriors clad from head to toe in tin-cans on the screen, Lin Sheng shook his head slightly.
He would let them rush in and be focus-fired upon. Perhaps a single shell would do the job, and when they know what sort of destructive force awaits them, they would know that charging in blindly would not help them.
“But this Sevenlocks Tower… they had acted against us using so many means. We need to beef up our guard against them.”
Once he was sure that there were no more problems, did he lay down and closed his eyes to rest.
Somewhere inside the Hidden Realms.
Yellow sand covered the entire length of this Hidden Realm.
Beneath a huge sand dune, a cold red scythe was being entangled by a swath of green seaweed.
On the other end, the edge of the crescent moon seemed to be frozen by something and the frost was spreading all over it.
Mi Yue stood alone under the crescent moon, his expression and poise were calm.
And against him, was the third person.
Similar to the other two, the third person was shrouded in a thick golden light. Clearly, someone did it on purpose to hide their identities, and this was a proper head-on battle…
The three Hidden Realms had sent out their strongest elites in a joint attack against Mi Yue. After a few days of fighting, the battle had reached its current state.
At that moment, under the dune, three figures shrouded in light sat around Mi Yue as four different powers fought above their heads in the air.
Later on, Mi Yue was accidentally hit by a powerful spell called the Poison of Time, and the fight became this current stalemate.
“You three cowards who dare not even show your face! Is it that interesting getting into a battle of attrition with me where?” Mi Yue said, his words bleeding with scorn.
“Tower Master, you must be joking. We are not like the wicked folks of the Sevenlocks Tower. We have our own lives to live, and this is to protect that life of ours. That’s all to it.”
The figure in the glowing light sitting right across him responded.
Mi Yue pondered for a moment, and just as he decided to speak, a drone flew close to him. The drone was equipped with a long-distance transmission earpiece.
The drone got close to Mi Yue’s ears and whispered the report in secret code.
But even Mi Yue found the specifics of the report unbelievable.
Aelfe, the second seat of the Sevenlocks Tower was trapped within the Holy Sanctum’s headquarters, and there was still no news about him.
The new sage, Azem had also been liquidated, captured, and sealed away.
“The Holy Sanctum…” Mi Yue closed his eyes to rest a little.”Send the Darklight out. This was originally prepared for the Three Hidden Realms, and now that the Holy Sanctum had appeared, might as well give them to him.”
“The Darklight? Isn’t it overkill?” the voice in the drone exclaimed.
“No, send the word out. It is time for them to fulfill their pledge.”
