Chapter 401 The Entry Point to Dealing with the Riot
After Ling Dongyu and those high-level officers of the defense force left, only Lu Ze and Lin Ling remained, as well as the five unconscious guardians. As for the research team members, they were also taken away by the defense force.
Jian Wen and Chris received quite some injuries during the battle and were still unconscious. However, after treatment, their conditions were rather stable. Their families felt assured, but after hearing about what the two did, their pale faces lost their color even more.
Lu Ze and Lin Ling glanced at each other. Lu Ze smiled. “It’s still a while before dawn. Do you want to find a hotel so we could rest?” The battle today was quite arduous. The pressure Lin Ling experienced was probably not trivial.
In response, Lin Ling nodded.
The two flew towards Xingzhan City. Due to the structures in the outer region being damaged, large amounts of homeless citizens stayed in hotels.
Lu Ze and Lin Ling came to the room they had availed yesterday.
Seeing Lin Ling happily pay the money, Lu Ze once again felt she was wealthy. Once inside, Lin Ling said, “I’m going to take a bath.”
Lu Ze nodded and then lay on the couch. He looked out the window and could see the ruins at the border of the city, as well as the space ships lifting off void beast bodies even further away.
He wondered how the alcoholic and the fox demon were doing at this hour.
Why did the blade demons suddenly attack?
However, he wasn’t excessively anxious about it. It seemed that only one had power at the planetary state. If they were careful, they could probably earn a huge reward.
Lu Ze closed his eyes and rested for a while.
An hour later, Lin Ling came out of the bath. Lu Ze looked at her. She was wearing bathrobes and still had steam around her. Her face was red, and her brows were relaxed.
She sat down on the couch, and a wave of aromatic air blew over. Thereafter, she smiled. “You should wash too.”
In just a few minutes, Lu Ze came out of the shower.
Lin Ling was scanning through her phone. She seemed to be in a good mood.
Lu Ze went over and asked curiously, “What are you looking at?”
“A report about this wormhole incident.”
Lin Ling projected the report, and a professionally-dressed woman appeared. Behind her was the ruins of the Xingzhan Plains. The plain was filled with numerous deep ditches. Lin Ling smiled. “Journalists are really hard-working. As soon as the wormhole disappeared, they headed over to report.”
The work of disposing the void beast bodies was pretty much finished. The two mortal evolution state bodies that were level six were being lifted into the huge transporter ship by aperture opening state soldiers.
Despite being dead, the chi from the two bodies was still very shocking. The journalists didn’t even dare to get closer.
There was an aperture opening state soldier wearing tattered battle armor next to the journalist.
The journalist forced out a smile and said, “Hello, everyone. We are very honored to be granted an interview with a high-level member of the defense force. Standing next to me is the commander of the first legion of Gracious System’s defense force, Mende Harmen.”
Despite trying to subdue his aura, the murderous chi around him still scared the journalist.
The commander nodded.
The journalist asked, “Commander Mende, it’s said that the void beast tide appeared with this wormhole. Would it be convenient to disclose the number of the void beasts?”
Mende answered, “This time, there are 460 core martial states, 132 aperture opening states, 2 mortal evolution states at level two, 1 mortal evolution state at level three, 1 mortal evolution state at level four, 1 mortal evolution state at level five, and 2 mortal evolution states at level six that appeared.”
As Mende spoke, the journalist’s eyes widened. There were quite a lot of void beasts, but Xingzhan City wasn’t destroyed!?
This was a miracle!
“May… may I ask how many soldiers did the defense force mobilize, and how many casualties…?” she said shakily.
To this, Mende replied, “We sent out 1094 soldiers, and the casualties were less than a hundred.”
The journalist opened her mouth in disbelief.
“Does that sound impossible?” Mende continued, “I feel like it’s a dream too after considering what happened to the Xigui System.” “Why…?”
“Look at those two bodies.” Mende pointed at the two bodies of the mortal evolution state beasts at level six. The white bone armor was cracked, and it was occasionally flickering with purple-red lightning.
Mende grinned. “Do these two scare people even when they’re dead?”
The journalist nodded.
What a joke, she was only a spirit martial state!
“These two are level six mortal evolution state void beasts. Do you know how they died?”
Mende resumed speaking. “The day before yesterday, our defense force sent out a fleet to protect a ship. There seem to be intense protests about anti-special rights?”
She wasn’t dumb. Immediately, she knew what Mende meant. Nevertheless, she didn’t reply and kept listening instead.
Mende said plainly, “This time, the person who saved Xingzhan City is the person for whom we sent out the fleet to protect. If it wasn’t for him, the entire defense force might’ve been annihilated. What would happen to Xingzhan City and its people, you can look at Xigui System.”
Lu Ze, who was watching this, felt stunned. His mouth could not help but twitch.
Were they using him to deal with the riots at the Gracious System?He slapped his leg. Lin Ling looked at Lu Ze. “What’s wrong?” “He didn’t even pay me for this. Ten pancakes aren’t enough now. I want twenty!” Lin Ling: “…” Lin Ling looked away.
Lu Ze suddenly asked a question. “Do you want an extra ten?”
Lin Ling fell silent before finally answering, “Yes.”
Mende’s eyes were cold. “This time, Lieutenant Colonel Lu Ze killed all the mortal evolution state void beasts by himself, as well as most of the aperture opening state and core martial state void beasts. The city was protected all because of his hard-fought battle!”
Subsequently, he said, “What the Federation does is justice and openness of opportunity. Special rights are what you earn…”
Lin Ling smiled at Lu Ze. “Now, you’re famous again.”
Lu Ze: “…”
He still wanted to keep a low profile.
