The rain was still pouring down heavily.
The woods between the Scorching River and Banlo City were about to turn into a swamp from the rain. The water on the flatlands had already reached their knees.
Destructive magic kept appearing across the city. The trash and debris had blocked off the sewers, and the city had flooded.
The streets had turned into water channels, making it difficult for people to walk across them.
There was no sign of civilians in the city. Most of them were hiding in the buildings or sent to the refugee camps by the Brown Army.
Those who were still roaming in the city were interrogated by the Brown Army. They were most likely executed in the end since the Brown Army did not want anyone from the Federation to sneak into their territory prior to the battle.
Sirens were going off continuously. The Brown Army was trying to take over the city, they were not planning to massacre every civilian. They were warning the people in the city to hide indoors and stay away from the streets.
Otherwise, they would be treated as an enemy!
As soon as the order was given, the streets were smeared with blood. Not everyone had listened to the instructions and stayed indoors.
“Idiot, are you asking for your death?
“Are you deaf? Did you not hear the warnings that kept telling you to stay indoors? You are lucky that you weren’t burned to death by a Fire Burst when you snuck across the street. Find a place to hide now!” the militia sergeant yelled.
A slender woman crawled to her feet on the street. “My brother, his legs were punctured by a steel reinforced bar. I have to find some medicine. Otherwise, he won’t survive the night,” the woman cried.
Her eyes were full of tears. She was soaked in rain too, like she had just crawled out of a pond.
The militia sergeant frowned.
He looked at the drug store across the street. It seemed like the woman was trying to get some medicine from it.
“Hide inside that bakery, and don’t come out!” the militia sergeant ordered her.
“There’s no but! Go inside, or I’ll kill you now,” the militia sergeant yelled.
The woman quickly hid inside the bakery. She picked up some bread from the ground and munched on it. She was obviously starving.
She realized her brother had not eaten anything for some time too. She quickly found a filthy bag and took the bread from the shelves, wrapping them carefully with plastic so they would not be soaked in the rain.
Soaked bread was horrible to eat.
The woman suddenly heard footsteps as she finished up.
She subconsciously hid in a corner until she saw the militia sergeant coming inside the bakery with a white plastic bag, which held some medicine he had found in the drug store.
The militia sergeant shoved the plastic bag into the woman’s hands and yelled, “Your brother isn’t going to live if you are dead. Stop coming out on the streets. Do you understand?”
The skinny woman lifted her gaze and revealed her tearful eyes between her disheveled wet hair.
Beautiful Banlo City had turned into Hell on Earth in less than twelve hours. Her slender figure could barely withstand the pressure. She would rather have jumped into flames if she did not have her brother to take care of.
The woman grabbed the two bags and ran back to the building she was hiding in previously.
However, just as she reached the building, huge rocks were tossed into the air. They were the size of a large house.
They flew across the sky. One of them happened to target the building the woman was heading towards. It landed on the building and snapped it in half. The floors above the twelfth started falling in front of her.
The woman’s eyes widened and almost fell out of their sockets.
Her brother was on the fourteenth floor, meaning that he was among the debris that was falling to the ground!
The two bags she was holding dropped onto the concrete. She ran at the debris like she had gone insane, but the impact as the debris fell to the ground knocked her into the distance.
The militia sergeant was only two hundred meters away. He turned around and saw the woman being sent flying by the impact.
“The Federation’s army!”
“They are here!”
“They are on the Fourth Avenue with a regiment of Rock Tanks!”
Huge rocks the size of houses went flying into the sky before falling down on Banlo City like meteorites.
They blew up into pieces, firing splinters into every corner of the city. It was soon covered in smoke and cries of pain.
“Those assh****, didn’t they know there are still a lot of civilians in the buildings? Why aren’t they coming straight at us instead?” the militia sergeant snarled.
Even an idiot would know there were still a lot of civilians who had not been evacuated from the city!
The Federation’s army was bombarding the city with rocks, as if they could not care less about innocent civilians.
“Retreat to the trenches.”
“Forget about them, we aren’t a salvation army.”
The militia sergeant knew his power was limited. There was nothing he could do to stop the enemy’s advance.
More buildings began to collapse on the street, posing a huge threat to the Brown Army. Blood and flesh were mixed into the debris.
A few rocks happened to land on the path the militia were retreating on.
The rocks crushed those they landed on like smashed tomatoes. Several militiamen died instantly.
The militia sergeant was relatively lucky, as the rocks did not land on him. However, he was dazed when he saw his men turning into red tomato sauce on the ground.
A huge rock suddenly swept past the militia sergeant’s head.
Judging by its trail, it was heading toward a nearby refugee camp!
The camps were refugee centers for the civilians. Those who were not involved in the war were gathered in the camps.
Normally, the Federation’s army would avoid the refugee camps since the people in the camps were the Federation’s civilians. Their relationship with the Federation’s army was like hostages and the police.
However, one of the rocks was heading straight toward the nearest camp. There were at least a thousand people in it!
The rock was the size of a cruise liner, and would instantly turn the camp into a burial ground with more than a thousand corpses!
“Those scumbags!” the militia sergeant shouted.
The rock was about to fall on the camp and smash the people into pieces, when a silver light wrapped around the rock.
The rock suddenly froze in the air after the silver light completely enclosed it. It was like watching a paused film.
However, it was happening in real life instead of a film. How could such a huge rock freeze in midair all of a sudden?
The militia sergeant was dumbfounded!
The rock had stopped in an instant. How strong would the person have to be to do such an astonishing feat?
