Chapter 992 Incoming Storm 1
News of the fourth exploration phase spread through the entire universe like a storm.
The entire universe had been waiting for this day for far too long, and every Star Field became bustling with excitement. The civilizations of the various regions all began to recruit manpower and purchase resources.
The normal galactic residents also became excited. They could not wait to explore the new Star Fields, and many of them wanted to try their luck to get rich or migrate over.
Countless troops and resources were being mobilized all over the universe. The dynasty had only announced the time, but before the official opening of the Flickering World, all the manpower and resources would have to wait in the Shattered Star Ring. As such, the Shattered Star Ring would become bustling with activity during this period.
The opening of a new Star Field would reshuffle the current state of the universe once more.
A huge tide of migrants flooded toward the Flickering World from all directions.
On a red mining planet, there were many prisoners mining for resources.
In the middle of a circular mountain range, there was a prison with a grayish exterior.
“Congratulations, you’re finally out.”
After stepping out from the surveillance region of the prison, even the air smelt sweeter. Looking at the usually stern prison guards smile at him, Evans felt as though it had been an eternity.
He could finally leave the stinky sweat filled prisoner attire and was dressed in a simple top with light luggage in his hands. It had been a long time since he was so at ease.
A floating device was stopped not too far away. This was the prison’s bus that was in charge of sending the prisoners to the space dock outside the atmosphere. At this moment, there was a man in military attire standing beside the bus waving at him.
Although it had been a long time since they last met, Evans immediately recognized the man in military attire.
He could not help but smile and hugged the other party.
“I am here to fetch you. How have you been all this while?”
“Work, eat, sleep—every day is the same.”
They were both extremely excited to meet each other after so long and felt as though they had endless conversation topics.
Evans sized his friend up and lamented, “Time really flies. You were only a skinny child running behind me before I went into prison. Who would have thought that you’d join the military?”
“You have also changed greatly. Don’t just stand there. Get on.”
Both parties then took the bus to the space harbor and took a spaceship to a colonial planet not too far away.
This prison was located on a mining planet surrounded by various colonial planets. There were plenty of different prisoners housed within the prison being laborers on the mining planet.
Evans’ friend had already booked a room in a famous hotel and treated Evans to a good meal.
It had been far too long since Evans last tasted anything other than nutrition fluid. He immediately gobbled down all the food before him and stuffed himself until he could not eat anymore.
Patting his bloated tummy, Evans let out a sigh of satisfaction.
At this moment, his friend took out a box and opened it up. There was a Galactic Communicator, a translator, and other necessities in the box. There was even a portable mechanical suit in it.
“I prepared all this for you. I also opened up an account for you with 15,000 Enas inside.”
“I will accept the other items, but you can take the Enas back. I don’t need it. I did receive a salary in the prison, so I have some money.” Evans waved his arms.
“How can that do?” his friend immediately exclaimed. “You saved my life before. If not for you, how would I have my current life? You must definitely accept my repayment.”
He had always been thankful toward Evans. Evans killed an evil Super back then in order to protect him and went to prison because of it.
The supernatural abilities of a Super would enlarge the darkness in some people’s hearts. They would attempt to seek a sense of superiority from ordinary individuals and humiliate or torture these individuals with their strength.
They had once met such a Super, and their lives had been threatened. Although Evans was only an ordinary person, he had managed to find a way to get rid of that Grade E Super.
His good friend was already a military officer and had awakened his Super Gene. However, it was a pity that Evans did not have a Super Gene and would remain an ordinary individual for all his life.
With Evans’ abilities, if he has the talent to become a Super, he would definitely be more powerful than me in future.
Sigh, it is a pity that this is his destiny.
“Haha, I shall accept your sincerity, but I don’t need your money. Don’t think of trying to repay me with material items if we are brothers,” Evans said with a smile.
“You can come over to my place if you are willing.” His friend refused to give up.
“You are already married. I cannot disturb you.”
“I can try to get rid of your past record if you want to enter the military.”
“It’s alright. I am an ordinary individual and will only be cannon fodder if I join the army.” Evans knew that it would be impossible for him to become a Super but was not too bothered about it.
He did not have the bad habit of lamenting about life. The way he saw it, rather than spend time lamenting, he might as well spend the time on practical actions.
“Then, what are you planning to do in the future?” his friend said with resignation.
“Hmm, let me find a job first and talk about the rest later.”
Evans then began browsing the web with his communicator to view the employment advertisements. He was startled the moment he saw the advertisements.
There were plenty of jobs available but the first criteria of all the jobs was the same.
‘Job location: Flickering World!’
As long as they could work in the Flickering World and were not a wanted individual, they would be hired!
His friend looked over and shook his head.
“The Crimson Dynasty has finally announced the opening of the Flickering World, and every organization is hiring more manpower.”
In his memories, the Flickering World was still in the Crimson Tide era. The universe had truly changed greatly during his imprisonment.
He then lowered his head and looked at the recruitment notice before nodding his head.
“Flickering World… let me go and take a look then.”
“It is finally going to open up.”
On the Star Pupil Holy Race’s home planet, Psyker stood in front of a window.
After the Planet Lighthouse incident, he had maintained a low profile to recover from his losses.
After more than ten years, the negative influence of him giving up the Evolution Cube was already gone, and he was still the noble leader in the eyes of many.
Although he was extremely close to the Flickering World, he could only watch as Black Star and the Tyrant gained an early advantage in the Flickering World because he was a member of the church. Psyker was extremely envious and anxious. He had been waiting for this day for a long time and also wanted a slice of the cake.
The way he saw it, the Flickering World was an opportunity for the Star Pupil Holy Race. He no longer needed to be restricted in the Shattered Star Ring. His current situation would only become worse as Black Star and the Tyrant developed themselves. As such, he needed to find a new way out for the Star Pupil Holy Race.
As such, the Arcane Church had an excuse to interfere and support him. The more the benefits he could obtain in the Flickering World, the better for his race.
As he thought about the past, Han Xiao’s figure appeared in his mind.
“Black Star… he has also remained silent for more than ten years. It seems like his strength has stagnated after reaching peak Beyond Grade A…”
