Chapter 649 Secure
Luo Bingqing looked at the body. “This is the fifth.”
Mo Xie looked up at the sky. His eyes penetrated the atmosphere and saw into s.p.a.ce.
The battle there was more terrifying but not something they could partic.i.p.ate in.
“More and more void beasts are coming in. The pressure up there isn’t small.”
Louisa bit her lips. “This is at the border. The pressure is huge, but there should be a lot of adventurers coming, right?”
Jack nodded. “Looking at the time, it’s been two days since the missions have been posted. Powerful adventurers should be arriving soon.”
Lin Kuang asked, “Would Lu Ze and his team come?”
Even if they did, they would be at the battlefield above.
Daphne rubbed her head. “Let’s continue and see if there are prey suitable for us.”
Lu Ze’s and the other’s s.h.i.+ps entered the Zhihuo System.
They sensed waves from all directions. Nangong Jing frowned. “There are many void beasts in this solar system.”
Lu Ze nodded and looked at planet Zhihuo. “But the most intense battle is located there.”
Other places were rather minor. Qiuyue Hesha asked, “Should we go straight to planet Zhihuo?”
“Let’s go there first.” Lu Ze nodded.
Soon, the three s.h.i.+ps arrived on planet Zhihuo.
When they saw the dense cl.u.s.ter of void beasts there, Lu Ze and the others were dazed.
Everyone was fighting. The Shenwu Army wars.h.i.+ps were spurring spirit force beams while the warriors were fighting with all their might.
Lu Ze frowned.
Those who could fight in s.p.a.ce were the middle-power of the human race, and yet, they were dying here. Could he really not let Ying Ying intervene? Lu Ze looked at Ying Ying who was looking outside and wondered if that was the right thing to do. Those humans, who were fighting, deserved respect. If Ying Ying intervened, she could save many people and easily turn the tides, but what about next time and the time after that?
What if Ying Ying fell asleep or left?
What if there was a being that Ying Ying couldn’t stop?
If they relied on Ying Ying every time and lost the sense of urgency, could the humans still maintain such bravery and unity?
Lu Ze didn’t know what to choose. Lu Li and Qiuyue Hesha saw this and grabbed Lu Ze’s hands.
Lu Ze was startled and looked up at these two and finally realized everyone was waiting for them.
Lin Ling carried Ying Ying. “We made this decision together. These past two thousand years, with the 12 saints leading our race until now, we’ve relied on ourselves. This was the case before and will be the case in the future.”
Qiuyue Hesha rubbed Lu Ze’s forehead gently. “You’re thinking too much, little brother Lu Ze. We can’t only rely on Ying Ying.”
Alice looked at Lu Ze and didn’t talk. She would support Lu Ze regardless. Nangong Jing grinned. “Kid, this is my first time seeing you like this. It doesn’t suit you.”
She pa.s.sed her wine bottle to his mouth. “Have a sip, then we’re going to fight.”
Lu Ze wanted to stop this, but Nangong Jing already stuffed it into his mouth.
Lu Ze looked at Nangong Jing in disbelief. Did she know what she was doing? However, since she did this, he didn’t reject it either.
He had been drinking so much golden fruit wine that his alcohol tolerance became good. He guzzled half a bottle.
Nangong Jing took the bottle back and looked at Lu Ze in surprise. “Little kid, your alcohol tolerance became quite good. Last time, your face went red with just one sip.”
Lu Li: “???”
There was a previous time??!!
Lu Li narrowed her eyes. When the beast tide was over, Lu Ze would be over too.
Lu Ze thought of something. He should find an opportunity to give them golden fruit wine. It would benefit them quite a bit.
He smiled. “I know. Let’s go help too.”
He looked at Lu Li and Alice. “Stay with Lin Ling.”
He looked at Ying Ying and rubbed her head. “Ying Ying, protect your sisters. If humans are about to die, save them. Don’t let them find out.”
However, there were so many people this time. Ying Ying might not be able to take care of everybody. She could only try her best. “I’ll feed you good things after this ends.” Ying Ying’s eyes lit up. “Ying Ying promises to finish the mission!”
Nangong Jing and the rest smiled. If possible, who would like to see their own race die in battle like that?
Nangong Jing smiled. “Let’s go.”
Lu Ze nodded and contacted Hu Xiang and Leona. Everyone left the New Dawn.
Ying Ying then disappeared from the spot.
Lu Ze put away the New Dawn, and the other two squads came.
Hu Xiang said, “Let’s head off. Find a point of entry with weakness in the planet first.” Some void beasts were terrifying. Despite being a few hundred thousand kilometers away, the terrifying pressure was shocking.
Thereafter, everyone glanced at the battlefield and flew in one direction. There were nearly a hundred Shenwu Army soldiers fighting a few hundred void beasts there.
There were more void beasts than soldiers, but the soldiers cooperated well together and barely stopped the creatures. However, there were still void beasts crossing over from time to time.
The leader was a black-haired middle-aged man. He was a level-5 planetary state.
He held a black long sword. His face was a little fatigued, and he was fighting two level-5 planetary state void beasts. “p.i.s.s off!!”
He hacked down with two hands, but it only made a clank on their armor. Seeing this, his face turned bad.
“d.a.m.n, these b.a.s.t.a.r.ds’ defenses are really strong!”
He panted and said, “When are the adventurer squad reinforcements coming?? We can’t hold on much longer.”
Another soldier panted. “The mission has been released. It’s been two days now. They should be here soon.”
The middle-aged man cursed. “d.a.m.n it, are they snails? Brothers! Hold on!”
Lu Ze frowned. “These void beasts don’t seem like ordinary void beasts.”
Leona nodded. “I have this feeling too. Let’s be careful. Contact the Shenwu Army over there. Tell them to hold off the large group. We’ll slowly finish off this wave of void beasts.”
Lu Ze nodded. “In that case, I’ll draw a wave over.”
As he spoke, a black lightning cloud formed, and the blood lightning shot towards the void beasts crowd like sharp swords.
Tens of blood lightning bolts struck their armor, and those below level-4 planetary state were instantly killed.
Those level-4 planetary states stopped the blood lightning with their armor. The severe pain, which was unique to the blood lightning, made them look towards their attacker.
