Chapter 571 Creating God: Part 2
From that spot of blood, they had unexpectedly managed to nurture the girl.
But what everyone did not expect was that, the girl seemed to only see the man alone.
So it was natural for her to take him as her father.
“Director, there isn’t enough cerebrospinal fluid left. Can we take a little more?” A researcher approached and whispered.
“Yes, but the total amount cannot exceed one-third or else her regeneration rate will be seriously affected.” The man finally looked at the girl in the isolation room.
And she still maintained a radiant, sweet smile at him.
“Alright, don’t bother me if there’s nothing else.” The man turned away and left.
He suddenly felt a little irritable.
A flash blasted out.
Lin Sheng’s vision turned white before coming onto another scene.
“Do we really need to destroy it?”
In the bleak experimental headquarters, a few chief research directors had gathered to discuss the Operation Mishv’s plan of creating a god.
“We already have the perfect creation, and Nurgana’s appearance is just an accident. And she is getting more and more unstable. Her body will collapse at any time, and if it happens, it will be a threat to the laboratory.
“So it must be destroyed.”
“I also agree with her destruction. We only need one of our creations, as we have all of the data needed. Nurgana is merely a failed product of little use.”
“There’s also test subject number 2 that needs to be carefully destroyed. Our resources can no longer support such a large consumption.” “Then, let’s put this to a vote.” The old director at the main seat said calmly.
One by one, hands were raised.
The man narrowed his eyes, and for a moment he seemed to recalled the blond girl who called him daddy.
He paused for a moment, before finally raising his hand slowly and firmly.
“Then it is agreed upon unanimously and destruction shall commence.”
Lin Sheng slowly moved forward as if he wanted to take a closer look at the documents on the table.
But the scene suddenly changed again.
Crimson flames were blazing violently.
The mist of the Blacktide rushed madly like a shadow beast into the starship from the gap in the hull.
Due to the massive traction force caused by the vacuum, a large number of objects and starship personnel were simply just sucked out and ejected into space.
Day 130 after the destruction of Nurgana.
There was a riot in the starship, and a riot no one know the origin had hit the isolation layer, and the explosives had ripped a hole in the air pressure isolator.
Amidst the flashing red alarm, the man stood in the monitoring room looking at the scene of carnage with an impassive look.
“Director. It’s too late. Our area had been contaminated, and the black mist is completely unstoppable! We are unable to isolate anyone!” The starship’s marines captain said anxiously.
“What about the other directors?”
“They had started to evacuate already!”
“Then let’s go too.” The man was decisive.
But just as he was about to turn and leave, a massive shock rocked the entire ship as a powerful explosion and shockwave came from under their feet.
An invisible, terrifying shock wave instantly penetrated the layers of the ship’s hull, and stunning everyone that was still alive, sending them sprawling onto the ground.
“Bloody hell! The reactor! It’s the reactor!!” This was the man’s last thoughts.
And just before he fell into a coma, he saw the black mist seeping through the door at the corner of his eyes.
Pairs of bloody eyes opened within the black mist one after another and stared at him.
And just as the eyes were about to pounce onto the man.
A red light suddenly flew out of the man, as a young girl’s voice came from the light.
But the eyes did not care and continued to rush to the man.
The red light was not afraid and stepped forward to receive the attack.
The two soon intertwined as they clashed against each other. After a long while, only did the red light returned to the man and hid as it was greatly weakened.
Lin Sheng had something in mind, and wanted to step forward to have a closer look at the red light.
But at that moment, countless of images circulated and poured into Lin Sheng’s mind in a frenzy.
It was the countless of memories being played in fast forward.
Time after time, Nurgana kept protecting the man as she was forced to continuously devour all sorts of attacking monsters.
It was this devouring that caused her body to be twisted and deformed.
Every time the man managed to escape from the clutches of death and found something to be off.
And in the process of flighting against the monsters of the black mist, he finally discovered the existence of the girl.
And thus, the humans that were being pushed to the brink had found one last shred of hope.
Nurgana’s existence had gave them new hope.
If they could mass-produce Nurgana’s existence, then fighting back and devouring all of the monsters would no longer be a dream.
And the man failed to withstand the pressure as after everything had stabilized somewhat, Nurgana was once again sent to the lab.
“Daddy… do I need to do anything?” Nurgana asked as she lay on the operating table with her eyes wide open.
“No need. Just sleep for a while. It won’t take long.” The man said calmly.
The tone of his voice sounded as if there was no danger to the Bloodmark prodecure.
The Bloodmark was to extract the core of Nurgana’s powers and cut into multiple pieces before implanting it into other bodies.
The mortality rate for this procedure was over seventy percent, but it could create more individuals like Nurgana.
“Daddy… this is the origami flower I had secretly folded. It’s for you.” The girl once again struggled to pull out the paper flower from her pocket and gave it to the man.
He hesitated for a bit, before taking it.
“Be a good girl and cooperat with the experiment.”
“I will.” Nurgana nodded.
The man dared not look at her in the eyes, and hurriedly left the operatin theater.
The metal doors slowly closed.
“Get lost!!” The man suddenly got angry as he pushed his subordinate away and rushed out of the control room.
He buried his hands deep into his hair as he squatted against the wall.
“That is a monster. She is not your daughter! She is not! She is just a monster bred out of an ancient box!” He murmured as he tried to hypnotize himself.
The experiment was successful, and the number of cultivated bodies increased and the monsters of the Blacktide were successfully resisted. Things had now stablized and safe…
But protoplasm, Nurgana was starting to wither.
The man stood by the sick bed, as he looked at the blonde girl in a coma. He then held a guitar-like string instrument, and started playing a gentle, messy tune with an impassive look.
“Daddy …” The girl slowly woke up from the bed.
“I’m here.” The man strumming fingers stopped.
“It hurts…” The girl cried in a hushed voice.
“It’s okay … I’ll play a song for you, and you won’t feel any pain anymore …” the man said calmly.
But his eyes was filled with tears. He looked down upon the girl’s bone-thin arms, as he played gently.
“I hope to be your light, and protect you by yourside”
“I hope to be your rain, and accompany you as you go.”
“I hope to be your cloud, shielding you from the sun.”
“I hope to be your wind, forever around you…”
The sound of the instrument played and the little girl on the sick bed seemed to no longer be in pain as a sweet smile appeared at the corner of her mouth.
“I hope to be your star, and shine upon you forever…”
The man’s fingers suddenly paused, as he saw the gradually flattening line on the heartbeat monitor.
“Daddy… it doesn’t hurt any more…” The girl murmured on the bed.
“Nana, you are a good girl… you won’t feel any pain when you hear the sound of the string, listen… don’t be afraid… don’t be afraid…”
The man lowered his head, and tried not to look at the heart monitor that was slowly flatlining.
He focused on playing the string, as he hummed the gentle lyrics softly in his mouth.
After who knows how long, the room turned quiet.
As the strumming stopped, the girl on the bed was forever silent.
The man remained silent for a long time.
Finally, he stood up, holding the harp, and stood silently by the girl on the bed.
