Chapter 124: The War to Save the Red Planet
“It’s really you.” Mu Xuan frowned. “You woke up after all.”
“Woke up?” The man smirked. “I have never gone into hibernation. Mu
Xuan, I’m not you. I wasn’t given that luxury. For the past million
years, I have never been at peace. So how could I have slept?”
“After all these years… you still haven’t put it behind you?”
“No!” He shook his head. “As you mentioned, a million years have
passed, so how could I have not put it behind me?” He lowered his head
to glance at the Red Planet, his gaze cold and unfeeling. “I just
understood that immortality is a curse, and because of it, I have been in
pain for a million years. Soon, all of them will walk down my path.”
“You want to wipe out the entire race?”
“I just want to free them from this endless life.” The man’s gaze
turned colder as he looked at Mu Xuan while articulating his words
clearly. “Besides, they will feel the same way soon, just like… the
me from before.”
“They are not you.”
“They will soon be.”
“I told you…” Mu Xuan’s face fell. “I don’t care what you
want to do, but you cannot harm our kinsman!”
“Heh…” He smirked. “It’ll depend on whether you can stop me
like the last time.”
He raised his arm, summoning multiple fire dragons to charge at Mu Xuan
who used a transparent barrier to shield himself from the attack. The
next second, their figures flashed, disappearing into the fields and
leaving only the sound of fighting in their wake.
The camera could no longer catch their figures, showing only flashes of
light in the skies. Yao Si grew more anxious with each passing moment.
Even though she had utmost confidence in her ex-dad, it wasn’t a fair
match. Mu Xuan had to look out for the other bloodlings while engaging in
mind control, and if that wasn’t enough, the enemy wasn’t weak either.
Yao Si could already conclude that his opponent was most likely
Euphoria’s leader. She had assumed that his motives for forming
Euphoria were to rob the bloodlings of their immortality, but it was only
then that she realized that he wanted to wipe out the entire race. Based
on their conversation, the BOSS against them was also a bloodling, and
probably one that was within the first five generations.
Yao Si was full of worry as she looked at a few screens at once, afraid
to miss out on anything. Mu Xuan and the BOSS were gone, but the sounds
of the fight were growing more and more intense, even affecting the
people below. Many houses had started to tremble as though an earthquake
was about to occur. The cities and the mountainous areas were all
crumbling, rock and building fragments flying everywhere.
“Don’t worry, Your Highness!” Qu Ze had to have seen her anxiety,
for he reassured her with a pat on her shoulder. “Even though I can’t
tell his identity, but His Majesty is the only one that managed to awaken
the ancestor’s bloodline. Even a first generation bloodling wouldn’t
be his match.”
Yao Si nodded. She was obviously aware of that, but… how could she not
worry? Who knew if the maniac that created the doomsday virus and wanted
to eliminate all the bloodlings had any other tricks up his sleeve?
But she was helpless and could only focus on the camera’s feed.
Qu Ze was right. The BOSS was indeed no match against Mu Xuan. Even if Mu
Xuan had spread his mental strength to prevent the other bloodlings from
being embroiled in the mess, he wasn’t in any sort of a disadvantage.
Besides, the sounds of the fight started to fade away as they rose higher
into the air and no longer caused a problem on the ground.
The two figures started to grow smaller until they could no longer be
seen. Fortunately, there was still Little Ball. It switched on the feed
from outer space.
As expected, the screen once again filled with various abilities. Even
though the other planets weren’t affected, the spaceships that were
circling around them faced a disaster from which they couldn’t escape
Yao Si sighed. Mu Xuan was indeed her ex-dad! She gave him a big thumbs
up internally. From the looks of it, the Red Planet would be free of
danger in no time.
The fighting went on for about ten minutes before finally stopping. Mu
Xuan and the Boss reappeared on the screen once more. Yao Si hurriedly
inspected Mu Xuan through the feed. Phew… He seems fine. Besides his
messy hair, there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with him.
The other person, on the other hand, was covered in wounds and blood. His
right arm was angled oddly at the side.
“As expected, I still can’t defeat you!” The Boss remained unfazed
though; instead, he gave a mysterious smile. “It’s better this way!
But… do you really think I came all this way just to have a fight with
Mu Xuan stilled, his frown deepening. What else did he want?
“Mu Xuan, I once told you that I’ll let you feel the same pain I
felt.” A wide smile spread across his face. It seemed to be hiding
something, like an unaccomplished wish or a promise to go all out. It was
full of satisfaction yet chilling to the bone, and Yao Si’s heart sank.
She thought of something then and said, “Little Ball, return the image
back to the Red Planet!”
With a flash, the screens once again showed the Red Planet. Explosions
could be heard from the spots in which the meteorites had fallen, and a
blue fog was rising from them.
Was that… the virus?
“Qu Ze, hurry up! Inform the Elders Council! Get everyone to evacuate
the Red Planet.” Even though the meteorite situation had been settled,
the virus filled fog still rose from within them. No one could fathom the
consequences of it.
F*ck, that bastard truly had another plan up his sleeves! Did he
deliberately lure Mu Xuan out of the Red Planet?
Mu Xuan had to have suspected the precarious situation as he turned
toward the Red Planet. What was weird was that no one followed him.
Instead, Li Zheng’s smile deepened. The instant Mu Xuan turned his back
to him, he made a slit in the air. Yao Si’s heart sank as she thought
that he was going to ambush Mu Xuan. But instead, the air beside him
started to split open, and a black portal took shape.
Is this space teleportation? What is he going to do?
Before she could come to a conclusion, she felt a chill on her back as an
overwhelming eerie force came rushing towards her. The big BOSS on the
screen was suddenly beside her, his low voice ringing in her ears. “I
F*ck! His plan wasn’t about the virus but her!
She felt her vision darken. The last thing she saw was the opening of a
portal and Mu Xuan running towards her maniacally.
