Chapter 867 Need A Change Of Plans
Iman pressed something with his right hand. A blue light entered Keke Lusi’s body thereafter, sealing his power completely.
Coupled with this move and his heavy injuries, Keke Lusi fainted.
Iman turned to Lu Ze and the girls. “Lu Ze, you guys did exceptionally well.” The other two level-8 star states nodded.
“Indeed, otherwise, we wouldn’t even be certain if we could win or not. There was no way it would be this easy.”
Lu Ze cracked a smile. “Pity we didn’t capture them all.”
Iman shook his head. “At the star state level, everyone has their respective trump cards and escape means. It’s not easy to kill a star state. We killed tens of blade demon star states this time though. This could be considered the greatest victory in 200 years.”
The level-8 star state smiled. “This time, it is enough for them to feel bitter for a long while.”
Lu Ze then realized something. Star states were the supporting pillars of a cosmic system state civilization.
‘How could they not have escape means?’
Lu Ze felt it was a bit of a pity, but he no longer minded it now.
It just proved he wasn’t strong enough. If he was, he could ensure the death of every single blade demon.
Iman looked down. They could still see the tail of the blade demon fleet. His eyes went cold. “Don’t let them get away!”
The star states nodded as they charged towards the fleet.
Lu Ze appeared in the middle and used Light-and-Darkness Beam.
The beam exploded, blasting the center s.h.i.+p to pieces. The nearby s.h.i.+ps suffered the same fate.
In the other regions, all the star states attacked. The remnant blade demon s.h.i.+ps blew up without resistance.
In just a few short seconds, tens of thousands of s.h.i.+ps turned into cosmic dust. Following this, the star states entered planet Geka.
There were still remaining cannon towers. This time, the blade demons lost too quickly. Usually, the star state battle should be the one that will take the longest to finish.
These cannon towers were only deployed when fleets were barging through the defense line.
Yet, the star state battle ended first, and the rest just fell apart. These cannons towers became useless now.
The blade demon base was empty.
Iman sighed. “I didn’t expect to win this battle without much fuss.” Lu Ze asked, “General Iman, should we keep chasing them? The blade demons should have a base similar to ours over there, right?”
Iman questioned, “What do you mean?” Lu Ze insisted, “Now that the blade demons had lost so many star states, we can destroy their base too. Perhaps this would make them suffer the greatest loss?”
Everyone looked strangely at him following his suggestion.
Lu Ze felt awkward and asked, “Is there a problem?”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang slapped Lu Ze on the head. She rolled her eyes. “If it were easy, we would have done that already. Don’t you think so?”
Iman smiled and explained, “Both our base and the blade demon base are the same. The defenses are extremely strong. We can’t break through it unless we have a cosmic system state coming over. But if even if one from our side arrives, their very own cosmic system state would also come to balance it out.” Lin Yan chimed in, “Otherwise, the defense force would consider retreating before you guys came.”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang said, “Normally, we can call the elders over, but right now, the threat of insectoids is prevalent. It’s not the time to begin a major conflict with the blade demons.”
Lu Ze nodded. By the time he completely repaired the foundations of the elders, their combat power should increase as well. At most, it would take him a year. He shouldn’t be desperate. Iman expressed, “But Ze did remind me. We can’t take their base yet, but we can’t also let go of a single resource point!”
He turned around and ordered, “Amanda, Li Xi, you two, stay and control planet Geka. The rest of you, come with me to sweep the blade demon resource points! The entire Geka System is ours now! As for the blade demons, they can watch us eat in their base!”
Blade Demon Base
s.h.i.+ps loaded with resources kept docking at the s.p.a.ce station. The blade demons guarding there grinned at the s.h.i.+ps.
“He… this is a major win!”
“Yes, in just half a day, we found more resources in the human base than what we scavenged for a week in other places. This is only the beginning too.”
“Haha, the masters have stationed at planet Geka with the Sharp Blade Legion. With that advantage, the humans can only dream of landing on Geka. The entire planet is ours now!”
“Everyone stand by! Don’t fail at this crucial moment! I’ll kill him personally!”
All the soldiers stood straight. But their eyes were blazing with fire. With more resources, they would receive a slight share too.
At this moment, s.p.a.ce rippled above the base. Heavily injured blade demons fell out.
Countless s.h.i.+ps charged out. Some were burning too. Seeing this, all the blade demons stationed at the base were taken aback.
“That’s… Master Duoduo Nike?!”
“They’re the star state masters. Why are they back??”
“Not good… a lot of our soldiers are missing?! Where did they go?!”
“It’s the s.h.i.+p of the Sharp Blade Legion? How come the damage appeared to be extensive?”
“Just what happened?!” A cold voice announced, “Notify our subjects at all the resource points to retreat immediately! Take away all the resources you can! From now on, all the s.h.i.+ps are forbidden to leave the base!”
Everyone’s eyes flashed with a trace of horror.
‘Something major happened!’ They didn’t know what it was exactly, but it seemed grave…
After the blade demons landed, some of them fainted on the spot. They were heavily injured and returned to the base purely on their will.
Duoduo Nike’s face was really bad. He found out that more than 30 star states were gone. His body was trembling!
“That was 30 star states!’
His face only got better when he saw a small female blade demon alive.
Luckily, Beibei Niya, who had healing G.o.d art, didn’t die. Otherwise, they would take forever to recover.
He took a deep breath to calm himself down. “Beibei Niya, stabilize the injuries of those who fainted. Everyone, heal yourself first! We’ll discuss things later after our companions aren’t in the brink of dying anymore!”
Beibei Niya nodded. “Yes!”
Half an hour later, the powerful blade demons gathered in a meeting room. Their chi was still extremely weak, but at least, the lethal injuries had recovered.
Duoduo Nike took a deep breath. “Our losses are substantial this time. We lost 35 star state brothers and sisters!”
The atmosphere fell silent.
Everyone’s expression was really bad. Duoduo Nike glanced at everyone and said, “But, we did get something. At least, we know Lu Ze’s real combat power. We have to account for the few powerful female humans as well. Their sacrifice was worth it. They discovered the hidden enemies we must watch out for. The original plan was just to kill Lu Ze. Now, we need to revise it accordingly.”
