Lu Ze couldn’t resist smiling when he saw the worried expressions of Jian Wen and the other scientists. “Don’t worry, we know what we are doing, and we can complete the mission. However, we need Doctor Jian to tell us about the whole situation in order for us to understand it. Then, we will head off immediately.”
Jian Wen glanced at the two again. Seeing that Lu Ze and Lin Ling both looked so confident, he didn’t say anything else. After all, Dawn System had already approved their mission request.
Accordingly, Jian Wen smiled at the two. “This time, there are four void beasts. Two of them have a combat power at aperture opening state with 500 apertures. Meanwhile, the other two are at aperture opening state with 600 apertures. They don’t have god arts.”
“The wormhole appeared close to planet Gula, so they immediately started wreaking havoc to the planet. They’re at the northern hemisphere for now, but soon, they would probably move to other locations.”
Lu Ze and Lin Ling nodded to express their understanding.
This was pretty much not a threat to Lu Ze.
At this moment, a young scientist frowned and said, “I hope you two can deal with the four beasts immediately. There are three large tribes with tens of thousands of people that have been destroyed. The number of destroyed smaller tribes are increasing as well. A lot of Gula people have died.”
“Although we’re trying to lead them to safety, we can’t intervene too much with primitive civilizations.”
Lu Ze was quite curious about such primitive civilizations. Were they like people from the stone age?
Just when he planned to ask this, another scientist rushed over. His face was pale and covered with sweat. “Old Jian, not good! A void beast is heading to Chris.”
All the scientists exclaimed when they heard the words.
Lu Ze and Lin Ling asked in confusion, “What happened?”
Jian Wen then explained, “Several scholars in our team are leading the Gula people to take refuge below. Chris is one of the core members of our team. He is down there too. He’ll be in danger if the void beast goes over.”
Lu Ze felt a little puzzled at this. He asked, “In that case, it’s not hard to run toward the flying ship, right?”.
When the scientists heard his question, they exchanged glances with each other. Subsequently, Jian Wen said, “Chris has a problem. You will know when you see him. Lu Ze and Lin Ling, can you two go annihilate the void beasts now?”
Lu Ze noticed how worried the scientists were, so he nodded. “Okay, we’ll go now.” Jian Wen and the rest smiled at his response. Jian Wen said, “I’ll take you guys over!”
Then, Lu Ze and Lin Ling returned to their own ship while another ship flew out of the huge mother ship.
Right now, on a grassy plain on planet Gula, a large group of humanoids was moving toward the south.
Their skins were greyish-white and dry. Their heads had a triangular shape, and two eyes grew on the two sides of the triangle surface. They didn’t have eyelids, but there was a thin membrane instead.
They were towering in terms of height. Females were slender and more than two meters tall. They wore revealing beast skin clothes. On the other hand, the men were bulky and could even reach three meters. Their upper bodies were exposed while they wore beast skin skirts on the bottom.
Their palms only had four thick fingers. Men were carrying wooden spears while the women took care of the children and the elderly.
There were tens of thousands of them. They were running on the grass as though something was chasing them.
From time to time, they would look up at the three figures in the air who were flashing with color.
They were ‘gods’. They could fly and do anything. They could even move mountains.
The strange huge beast on their side was god’s ride.
Five days ago, a god descended into their tribe and told them four demons were coming to destroy their homes.
At first, they didn’t believe it, but when they saw the god wave his hand and reduce a mountain to ruins, they all accepted it as the truth.
Even their strongest warrior couldn’t do this. Only a god could do this.
The god warned that extremely terrifying demons would appear. These demons would destroy their homes. The tribe leader implored the god to help the people destroy the demons.
But the god said it wasn’t time yet.
Although they didn’t know what time was, they chose to believe this god.
The god told them to head south. Only that would allow them to avoid the attacks of demons.
The god would point the way for them. Everyone felt grateful. Although they haven’t seen a demon yet, the god said they were extremely evil. In that case, it would be an extremely dark time. Meanwhile, the god gave them light in the darkness.
In the air, a gray-haired middle-aged man, a young black-haired man, and a young golden-haired woman were leading the Gula people.
Currently, the two young people revealed worried expressions while the gray-haired man frowned as he looked upon the north direction. Subsequently, he glanced at the Gula people who were looking at them with admiration as they rushed toward safety.
The black-haired youth said shakily, “Teacher, a void beast is moving toward here. It was not at full speed, but with its speed of destruction, it would arrive in half an hour. What do we do?”
The golden-haired woman bit her teeth. “Teacher, give up. We can’t save them. If we don’t leave soon, we’ll be stuck here ourselves too.”
The gray-haired man frowned at their words. He then glanced at the Gula people and didn’t speak for a long time. Eventually, a trace of firmness flashed in his eyes. He looked at the two and said, “We have already published a mission at Dawn System. There should be people here soon. During this time, I’ll use the flying ship to stall it. You guys keep leading them forward.”
When the two heard his reply, they could not help the change in their expressions. “Teacher, you can’t risk it. Even though the flying ship is fast, it can’t defend against that level of attack. It is not possible!”
The gray-haired man smiled. “Life is worthy of respect whether it is someone else’s or yours. Don’t worry, I will draw it away. It will be fine.”
After studying life for a hundred years, the more one understood about life, the more one respected it. It was a miracle of the universe and universal law.
Seeing how his two most proud students were worried, the man joked, “I am still young. I don’t want to die yet. You are not cursing me to die, are you?”
When the black-haired youth heard this, he could only grit his teeth and reply, “In that case, allow us to go. If it is just piloting the ship, I’m much better than an old guy like you. My reaction will be faster.”
The gray-haired man frowned, but at this moment, his phone rang. When the gray-haired man picked up the call, Jian Wen’s projection appeared. He stared at the gray-haired man and said, “Chris, the people from the Dawn system are here. Don’t do anything stupid. We will be there in a few minutes!”
“Li and Lucy, keep an eye on him for me. Don’t let him do anything stupid!”
When they heard this, the tense atmosphere dissipated.
The two youth started laughing right then.
In the research team, Jian Wen was the leader and Chris was the core member. They were all pretty close.
The two nodded. “Don’t worry, Professor Jian! We’ll watch our teacher!”
Chris joked, “Am I really your teacher, or is old Jian your teacher?”
Then, his entire body flashed with a blue light. He delivered a message using Gula language. His voice echoed throughout the area as the Gula people listened. “The people of god, the demon is about to reach us, but don’t worry, war god is about to arrive. They will annihilate the demons. For now, speed up, we need to stall some time.”
