Chapter 648 Unity Is Power
Outside the Zhihuo System, Lu Ze looked at the s.h.i.+p that suddenly stopped. He seemed to have seen it somewhere.
At this moment, another white light flashed, and another s.h.i.+p came out of the warp tunnel.
This s.h.i.+p also stopped on its tracks.
Right then, Lu Ze finally remembered where he had seen these two s.h.i.+ps before. They were the s.h.i.+ps of the two other adventure squads when they went to annihilate the Blue Sh.e.l.l Dragon with Yan Gu.
The doors opened, and a middle-aged man and beautiful woman came out. The man smiled. “I didn’t expect to encounter Monarch of the New Dawn here.”
Lu Ze smiled. “Guild leader Hu Xiang, long time no see. Guild leader Leona, likewise.”
Hu Xiang smiled and nodded. He looked at the void beasts’ bodies and was shocked.
His s.h.i.+p came out first, and he saw the blood lightning spears kill these void beasts. He was in disbelief since even he would need some time to take care of these void beasts.
Yet, Lu Ze killed them instantly?
It had only been two months, and his power reached this level?
Hu Xiang was completely dazed.
Leona didn’t see the previous battle, but looking around, she had some guesses. She smiled seductively. “I didn’t expect to see little brother Lu Ze here. What a coincidence.” During this time, Nangong Jing and the others flew out and came next to Lu Ze. Qiuyue Hesha smiled. “Leona, long time no see.”
Her smile stiffened. “Young duke Qiuyue, long time no see.”
Then, she glanced at Lu Li and Alice. She hadn’t seen these two before. One had to admit that Lu Ze’s luck with ladies was really amazing
Hu Xiang smiled. “Little brother Lu Ze, are you going to provide back-up for the Zhihuo System?”
Lu Ze nodded. “Yes, I didn’t expect you guys to come too.”
Hu Xiang answered, “The Zhihuo Lotus is a rather precious resource. The Shenwu Army released missions to protect this resource point, so we came.”
“Zhihuo System should be quite dangerous right now. Since we’ve met up, why don’t we head over together?”
Leona smiled. “I’m fine with it, of course.”
Lu Ze smiled and nodded. “No problem.”
Leona and Hu Xiang were level-4 planetary states. Their squad members were also planetary states. This was not bad after all.
The group went back to their own s.h.i.+ps and flew towards the system together.
Inside Hu Xiang’s s.h.i.+p, a handsome dark-haired man looked at the void beasts outside and was still shocked. He personally saw Lu Ze fight a few hundred planetary state void beasts before. But at that time, those void beasts were just level-1 and level-2 planetary states.
Now, he killed three void beasts approaching level-4 planetary state so easily. Was he dreaming?
This progress was too fast.
The other guild members were in disbelief too.
Hu Xiang sighed. “He’s indeed the Monarch of the New Dawn.”
Before, he even felt threatened by Lu Ze. This meant Lu Ze wasn’t far from him.
At this moment, Leona’s call reached Hu
Leona appeared. “Are those three void beasts killed by little brother Lu Ze?”
She had some guesses, but she still wanted to confirm them.
Hu Xiang nodded. Leona’s eyes widened. She took a deep breath before nodding.
Back on the New Dawn, Nangong Jing gasped. “Didn’t expect to see these two squads here.”
Lin Ling said, “The rewards for the defense missions are rather bountiful. Leona and Hu Xiang are both level-4 planetary states. It’s pretty normal.”
“I wonder how senior Yan Gu and the others are doing?”
Nangong Jing asked, “Probably went out again?”
At this time, Lu Li looked outside. “There are void beasts outside the system. Perhaps there are a lot more inside as well.”
Lu Li’s words made everyone turn serious. They put on their combat armors and got ready for battle.
In the asteroid belt and barren planets, there were thousands of void beasts positioned there.
Large fleets of s.h.i.+ps, powerful warriors, and adventurers were fighting with them in every corner of the system.
Violent spirit force shone more brightly than the star.
Planets were shaking during such battles. Outside planet Zhihuo, tens of thousands of void beasts circled around the planet engaged in battle.
The planet was shaking from the shockwaves. Storms and earthquakes occurred non-stop. The organisms on the planet were fleeing like it was doomsday.
On the stationed grounds, a huge spirit force barrier covered the city and the ocean of Zhihuo Lotus.
This was one of the few regions not yet affected by the battle.
Luo Bingqing and the others were cleaning up the void beasts that got through the defenses. There were also other adventurers and Shenwu Army soldiers.
Everyone was engaged in battle.
A void beasts with three pairs of sharp claws attacked Luo Bingqing and the rest.
Its cultivation level was level-1 planetary state, but its tough armor and agile tail made it rather hard to deal with.
Its front claws flashed with gray light as it attacked Louisa.
During this time, a purple light flashed. Xuan Yuji blocked the paw with a huge sword taller than her.
Xuan Yuji was forced a few hundred meters back. The purple crystal around her cracked a little. Blood even came out of her mouth.
The void beasts waved their paws to attack Xuan Yuji again.
At this juncture, Bernie appeared before the spirit paw and blocked it with his vines. Warm white flashed across Louisa and landed on Xuan Yuji. Her injuries instantly recovered.
She charged back at the void beasts again.
Xuan Yuji and Bernie blocked most of the frontal attacks.
Luo Bingqing was covered in frost, but outside the frost, there were faint red flames burning. Fire and ice fused together. The ice spears struck the joints of the claw and the void beasts’ weaknesses heavily.
As time went on, the void beast’s movement slowed a little under the frost. This greatly relieved the pressure on everyone.
Lin Kuang was surrounded in blood mist as he launched strikes towards the beast.
Chi Xiaomo’s dark red flames formed fire clones and went to self destruct.
Mo Xie was shrouded in dark sword rays which were dreamlike. They attacked the weaknesses of the void beast non-stop.
Jack, Daphne, Derrick all used their own divine arts and attacked the void beast.
As the battle progressed, the wounds piled up on the void beast. Its chi weakened.
Eventually, Jack swung a vibrant few hundred-meter long sword ray into its body. The sword intent surged, and its life force was wiped away.
Everyone breathed easy upon watching the body fall from the sky.
Xuan Yuji asked, “This void beast wouldn’t be weak amongst level-1 planetary states, right?”
Lin Kuang grinned. “Of course. Its defenses are really crazy. I attacked the same spot a hundred times to create an opening. If it was just me, I would’ve been killed already.”
Unity was power.
