Chapter 411 From Great Joy to Great Sorrow
Lu Ze and Lin Ling followed behind the soldier and moved quickly inside the ship. Soon, they arrived before a metal tunnel that was a few hundred meters wide.
The tunnel was white, and there were 10 three-meter wide black metal doors at the end of it. Many soldiers were present at the end of the passage.
From time to time, the metal doors would open. In turn, powerful aperture opening state soldiers would enter.
Those who came in were pretty much covered in wounds. Several of them were missing their arms and legs.
Basically, most of them were aperture opening states. Only one was a mortal evolution state. As such, those who were merely at the aperture opening state were greatly affected in vacuum space compared to those at the mortal evolution state.
As soon as the heavily injured ones entered, there would be soldiers supporting them into the medical chambers.
The tunnel was then filled with a bloody smell.
All those soldiers who came in and out had a serious expression.
At this moment, the left-most door opened. Two youths dragged a young man with a missing right arm who was covered in blood.
The man’s face was pale, and his chi was weak. Despite so, he was still struggling and almost broke free from the two people carrying him. He roared, “Let me go! Let me go! Duolin is still out there! I’m going to bring her back!”
One young man shouted in return, “That’s suicide! She’s dead! Duolin is dead!!”
This struggling man suddenly stiffened and halted his protests. Other people looked at him with sympathy. Death was all too common on the battlefield.
Lu Ze and Lin Ling had complicated feelings as well. During this time, Lu Ze stared at Lin Ling and used telepathy. “Don’t stay too far away from me.”
Lin Ling’s eyes flashed, and then, she nodded.
The two soldiers leading the way explained further. “That man with the broken arm is Abbot. He’s only 32 years old, but he is an aperture opening state with 420 apertures. He has hopes of becoming a young duke. Duolin is his fiancé. She was very talented and beautiful. She was a flower in the 32nd legion…”
“It’s said that they were preparing to get married at the end of the year. There’s only a month or so…”
From great joy to great sorrow, this Abbot was quite pitiful.
Lin Ling’s eyes turned red.
Immediately, Lu Ze and Lin Ling followed the two soldiers to the end of the tunnel. It was only at this point that everyone realized the identity of the two. They turned their heads to look at both of them.
Quite some people’s eyes lit up.
Lu Ze and Lin Ling?
Their powers were at the mortal evolution state!
Reinforcements have arrived!
Some of them didn’t see the battle before, but they at least know that Lu Ze was very powerful.
The mortal evolution state who was still recovering also got up and greeted Lu Ze and Lin Ling.
“Hello, Lieutenant Colonel Lu Ze, ist Lieutenant Lin Ling! I’m the vice commander of the 32nd legion, Ji Zhen. I’m very grateful that you have come to support us!”
Just when Lu Ze was about to speak, Abbot suddenly yelled at Lu Ze. “Lieutenant Colonel Lu Ze… Lieutenant Colonel Lu Ze, please save my fiancé!”
Ji Zhen frowned. With a serious tone, he spoke to Abbot.
“Abbot! As a soldier, don’t let your emotions cloud your judgment! Anyone can die on the battlefield, including you, me, and of course, Duolin.”
He didn’t stop Abbott’s previous outburst because the latter needed to release his emotions. However, if he were to trouble the reinforcements to save a dead person, then that would be crossing the line.
Abbott desperately explained his side. “She’s not dead! I’m serious! I saw that she was devoured whole by a void beast. She was only injured at the time. She’s definitely not dead!”
“Outrageous!” Ji Zhen reproached. He approved of Abbott’s talent, but he couldn’t let him do this.
How could an injured person survive after being eaten whole by a void beast? Abbot knelt to the ground and looked at Lu Ze with teary eyes. “Lieutenant Colonel Lu Ze, please I beg you, save my fiancé!” At this time, Lin Ling spoke first. “Was she really eaten alive?”.
Ji Zhen was stunned. He looked strangely at Lin Ling.
Did she really want to save Duolin?
There were numerous aperture opening state void beasts out there. How would she find her then?
Even if she found Duolin, will she still be alive?
Moreover, even if she was still alive at this moment, she would probably be digested by the void beast already upon the time they reached her location.
Abbot felt dazed. He quickly nodded. “Yes, I am certain! That aperture opening state beast is 530 meters long. It has one horn. Its eyes are dark gray, and its canine tooth is very long…”
Clearly, Abbot wanted to find Duolin so much that he would remember all the traits of the beast, right?
Being able to do this… Ji Zhen’s ugly expression gradually improved. He felt a bit torn right now.
On the other hand, Lin Ling nodded and turned to look at Lu Ze.
“Ze, let’s help?”
Lu Ze rolled his eyes. “Okay.”
Following this, Lu Ze flashed with silver light and disappeared from the spot together with Lin Ling.
Everyone was dumbfounded after witnessing their sudden disappearance.
A young soldier then explained, “This is Lieutenant Colonel Lu Ze’s space god art. Every time he used space god art, he would experience a backlash. I didn’t expect him to use space god art just to find Duolin.” Lieutenant Colonel Lu Ze was too nice.
Another soldier comforted Abbot. “Sir, a lot of time is saved since Lieutenant Colonel Lu Ze is using space transmission. Perhaps, Madam Duolin can still be rescued.”
Abbot’s desperate eyes lit up a little at this remark.Outside the mothership, a flash of silver flew past. Lu Ze and Lin Ling appeared in the vacuum space.
There were more than a hundred void beasts out here. Most of them were aperture opening states. Of course, some were mortal evolution states.
Several people who were at the aperture opening and mortal evolution state were fighting against the void beasts. Simultaneously, the motherships would also fire at the void beasts using the cannons from time to time.
In order to conserve energy, the cannons didn’t discharge frequently, but every strike was a precise shot capable of killing the target.
Lu Ze looked at the large group of aperture opening states and said, “Okay, let’s find that aperture opening state beast. It is a good thing that Abbot told us its characteristics, or we would really have to break open all their stomachs in order to find her.”
Lin Ling rolled her eyes. “Why do we need to do that?”
Feeling stunned, Lu Ze looked at Lin Ling. “Then, what should we do?”
Lin Ling blinked her eyes and grinned. “Did you forget that I have a spirit eye god art?”
