Chapter 849 - Pods
I was just checking the numerous functions of the pod when I felt the airs.h.i.+p moving. The stand on which it is on started to move left before up. A minute later, the airs.h.i.+p appeared above ground and started to lift from the air.
Sup Sup Sup...
As it floated in the sky, the boosters behind it activated, and the airs.h.i.+p started to cut through the clouds and fly toward its destination.
I was just looking at the scenery of the outside through the tiny window when my holowatch buzzed with a notification. It is a text from the team leader saying she will now have a meeting with the other team leaders and will discuss the mission details with us after that.
They have been very tightlipped about the mission, just telling us small details. The only thing they have told us about is that it is a joint mission to destroy The Station, and it far is, and we will be taking airsh.i.p.s to it.
After entering the Airs.h.i.+p, our holo watches had been cut off from the outside and will only be able to connect to outside when we return to from mission.
I hope we return as looking at the secrecy the guild is keeping; this mission seemed pretty important, and since it is important, it means it will be more dangerous, dangerous than normally dangerous missions we do.
To pa.s.s the time, I read the small booklet provided by the airs.h.i.+p when I entered the pod. It is about the pod and all the functions it had. It was small, and I thoroughly read it within fifteen minutes.
This pod is mindblowing as it not only had a state of real theater function from which gave one feeling of watching reality instead of the movie when watching the movies but it also has the state of the art pressure ma.s.sage function. The message it gives helps open energy pores in one's body.
But this is not function I like the most, the f.u.c.k.i.n.g I most is its escaping f.u.c.k.i.n.g. It is not a normal pod but an escaping pod that could not get damaged even by the attack of the Lord powerhouse.
So even if an airs.h.i.+p got to attack, one has chances of surviving with the help of these pods. I wished these pods had been a little bigger, so I could practice, but unfortunately, they are not, they are big enough to sleep comfortably, not to train.
Seeing the meeting of the team leader will take time, I took out the leftover of the morning and heated it in the pot before I ate with Ashlyn as dinner. Who looked around the pod before going inside me.
Typically Ashlyn stays outside, but she did not seem to like such a small enclosed s.p.a.ce, which is why she went inside.
Seeing there is nothing much to do, I take out some reading materials and start to read while doing that. I also started to practice the secret method with the help of a soul diamond at mild speed.
Secrete Method is the method I practiced the most as it could be practiced anywhere, but despite that, I did not see the signs of it breaking through. Since it has only one circulation, it is very difficult to know when it will make a breakthrough, the only thing I could do is keep practicing.
Team leaders meeting with the other leaders lasted for more than two hours. I was just reading and practicing when my holowatch buzzed with a Team leaders conference invitation, which I accepted readily.
As I had accepted the call, I saw a projection of my teammates starting popping around me one by one. It feels quite funny to have the conference in such a small s.p.a.ce.
"In the meeting, I had been provided with the mission details," Regina said, hearing that everybody turned serious.
"This time the mission is to destroy The Station of the Grimm Monsters, we will be facing twenty-thirty thousand Golden Elite Grimm Monsters of Fire Horn Lionman Tribe," said Regina.
Hearing that everybody stilled and drastic change occurred on the faces of everyone. The fourteen teams had around six hundred people, and six hundred fighting against thirty thousand Grimm Monsters felt terrifying, just the thought of it is terrifying.
"How many Platinums are at The Station?" My thought process interrupted by Kevin, hearing this question, my ears strained as the answer to this question could make things difficult or easy.
"Around forty to sixty." answered the team leader with the same serious voice.
Several people sucked the sharp breath, including me, this answer is too terrifying. We have only Eleven Platinum, and with them fighting four to six times their number is utterly terrifying.
All of the Platinums are Elite and could easily handle two-three powerhouses of the same level, but the problem is the platinum we have is far less.
If some Grimm Monsters platinum enters the battlefield, then it will be an absolute ma.s.sacre. No Golden Elite will be battled against no matter how great Elite he is.
Platinum is part of three Limit Breaking Levels, the power difference between two is too great that those below Platinum could not contend against the platinum, so loose platinum is far more dangerous than the Thousands of Golden Elites as it possesses the power to kill the thousands of Golden Elite.
And the worst thing is the number of Grimm Monsters is just as an estimate, though all the missions work on the estimate and many times the estimate turned out wrong, but we could handle it but in this mission, we could not.
If there are ten thousand more Grimm Monsters than the estimate, we will die. If there are ten more Platinum's, we will die. This is a mission in which chances of our surviving seem less than one fourth.
"Are they are sending us the Suicide Mission," Charles said angrily, stealing the words from my mouth.
Seeing the anger on her teammate's faces, the team leader sighed. "It is not as bad as you guys think. The mission leader said that estimation is based on the full proof intelligence and is likely to turn true." said the Team Leader.
Everybody just looked at her getting busy in their own thoughts. Even if the estimation is true, what we are facing is terrifying.
As I've said, it is not a child's play for six hundred people to kill the thirty thousand without the help of the Platinums.
We might even face the platinum in battle, which would slaughter us to abandon without us having any power to resist.
"This is a mission from the Guild, we have to do it whether we want it or not." the team leader said and forwarded the doc.u.ments. After initial silence, we started to discuss the mission point by point, as the team leader said there is no option but to do this mission.
As for running away, no one thought about it. People would prefer to be dead than the deserter, even the wretched criminal would think twice before doing that.
Becoming a deserter against Grimm Monsters is the worst thing one could do, it would be absolute dishonor to his family, Ancestors, and race who had been fighting against the Grimm Monsters for thousands of years.
