Numerous blue lines rushed at the object that looked like a dandelion
seed from all angles like a living creature and surrounded it.
Garen slowed down and became more and more gentle. Who knew what else the
Forbidden Core had placed inside? If something went wrong, it would be
very troublesome. After all, it was inside his body.
“Are you vainly attempting to remove the imprint? Just stop your
wishful thinking. This thing cannot be handled by a low-level guy like
you,” Red Moon laughed.
Before the voice had faded away, there was a light cracking sound.
The large number of blue lines that Garen had manipulated had wrapped
around the seed completely. As they tightened and shrunk non-stop, they
actually crushed it savagely.
There was no reaction. Garen had been ready to deal with any trouble and
problems that might have arisen. However, after the seed was crushed, no
unexpected changes occurred.
He gently manipulated the blue lines to draw the seed into the palm of
his hand and formed a cluster of blue lines.
As his voice sounded, the Living Secret Technique lines that were
connected to the rear of the cluster of blue lines suddenly tore and
broke. The cluster of lines independently formed a single ball and flew
out of the Mech through the Mech’s nacelle.
The cluster of lines suddenly shattered and turned into countless blue
light spots. Bits and pieces of the seed fragments inside were clearly
“Oh…?” the voice of Red Moon promptly became a bit surprised.
“You actually removed the seed…”
He did not seem too surprised.
“I did not expect you to have reached the point where you can eliminate
the seed imprint on your own… But, the real core part is not what you
“You really think that your imprint can be planted on anybody? That’s
rather unbelievable?” Garen sneered.
He absent-mindedly held out his hand and opened them again. There were
other clusters of blue lines gathering in the palm of his hand.
Clusters of blue lines broke off and flew out of the Mech.
“What!!” Red Moon’s countenance finally changed. “You…!!??”
Garen stretched his hand towards the clusters on lines in the air and
gently made a grasping movement.
Red Moon suddenly yelled anxiously.
Almost at the same time, all the clusters of lines burst together,
turning into numerous blue light spots, slowly dissipating and faded away
between heaven and earth.
In that instant, Garen’s face went pale. He bent down and vomited a big
mouthful of blood.
“You!!” Red Moon’s voice broke off abruptly and disappeared
Garen was faintly aware that something was amiss. This separation seemed
to have stripped off most of the imprint restrictions. But, there were
still some remaining parts that could not be completely isolated. These
parts seemed to be the most crucial points but they were deeply connected
to his heart and brain.
He could clearly feel that a slight wave of force field was constantly
emanating from a distant place. It was not the force field of a human,
but a kind of an irregular pulse, sometimes fast and sometimes slow.
Without any reason, he knew in his heart that it was Red Moon’s pulse.
“Is this the main source of the imprint?” Garen was suddenly
enlightened. As a master of the body’s soul manipulation, he was able
to keep abreast of the slightest changes in himself. Although he did not
know the means by which Red Moon had planted the imprint on his body, at
this moment, he could still clearly feel the remaining functions of the
The parts that restricted him had been forcibly eliminated using Living
Secret Technique. However, the remaining part was Red Moon’s most
fundamental source-of-life imprint. This thing could not be eliminated
because it did not bring any harm to the body itself but had great
If an ordinary person thoroughly integrated this source-of-life imprint,
he or she might be able to instantaneously stimulate Willpower and gain a
level. The activation of potential was the function of the imprint.
Garen’s body did not have any rejection towards anything that did not
harm his body.
There was basically no way to transfer this remaining part. It had
already been deeply connected to the heart and brain and had begun to
slowly release its own energy.
Garen closed his eyes slightly. He did not realize that this imprint
would be so difficult to deal with. Absorbing the source of this imprint
would undoubtedly benefit him greatly. However, it would also covertly
create a direct connection with Red Moon. If he chose not to absorb it,
on the other hand, it would leave crippling injuries to this body because
it was already connected to the heart and brain. After removing Red
Moon’s limitation control, there was only one choice left at all.
“Forbidden imprint? Since there are only parts that are good for me,
then why should I not accept this gift?” Garen opened his eyes and
there were blue traces washing over them.
Waves of Living Secret Technique blue lines emerged from the Secret
Technique core inside of his body and quickly wrapped around the
remaining sources of the imprint.
On the deserted grey-yellow grassland, Clint, who was slowly following a
convoy, suddenly trembled.
“What happened to you? Clint!” Baylon asked worriedly when she saw
his abnormal reaction.
The two were closely following the team of people they had met in the
sewers. This team was a small group in the radiation belt, an outgoing
search team affiliated with a survival site. They specialized in hunting
for edible mutated living beings and water sources with a low level of
radiation. At the same time, they were also tasked with clearing all the
hidden dangers of the surrounding areas.
“All right? Clint kid,” a yellow-bearded uncle at his side patted
Clint’s shoulder. He was the only chemist in the team and could use a
variety of radioactive materials and mutated biological plants to combine
and mix together into an agent called poisonous mist. It could dispel the
radiating poisonous fog in many places for a short time.
“I’m… I’m okay,” Clint drew back his body and lowered his head.
His face, however, showed an unexpected joy.
“Watch your path carefully. You both just came out from the region. The
danger of the radiation belt is not what you can imagine. Many times,
even a small scorpion that suddenly appeared out of the ground can kill
you easily. We can’t afford any antidotes and serum at all,” the
uncle said earnestly. “Even if it’s an ordinary cold, it will quickly
weaken a strong man as well. The viruses in the radiation belt are far
more powerful than in the regions and drugs are even more expensive than
gold and diamonds!”
“I understand, uncle,” Clint nodded wearily and looked at the tightly
bundled-up Baylon. Unlike these Radiation people here on the outside,
their skins had not been exposed much and seemed a lot more tender. Under
the gentle reminder of the convoy’s big sister, Baylon quickly covered
up her face and body.
In the radiation belt, even beautiful women could attract unprecedented
Seeing that Clint was alright, Baylon continued to hurry along while
slowly twisting together the rattans of radiation plants in the car.
After soaking this kind of entwined rattan in oil and tanning them, they
could be woven into durable pouches. These pouches could not be pierced
through by the fangs of mutated living beings. They made the best
carrying bags and could be exchanged for some basic food items and
drinking water in the team.
There were more than a dozen people in the convoy. Everyone had to work
in order to obtain grade three filtered water and food. These food
contained radioactive toxins. Eating them would result in more severe
radiation sickness and finally, the body would rot and die. However, as
long as it was not consumed continuously, drinking some water with the
purity level of grade two and above would allow the body to self-detoxify
without any serious problems.
As for drinking water that was less than grade two, the residual toxins
would result in more ulcers and radiation spots on the body. So long as
they did not eat it at frequent intervals, there would be no problem.
The team gradually calmed down.
Clint suppressed the joy in him and began to communicate with Red Moon in
“What! Radiation belt!?” Red Moon felt a little irritated after
learning of where they were.
“You guys actually entered the radiation belt?! Even the food here is
poisonous and the water source is filled with bacterial viruses and
radiation toxins. Surviving itself is an issue if you don’t have
filtration equipment! It’s worse than in the desert!” Red Moon seemed
to be familiar with the radiation belt.
“Yeah…” Clint had some understanding of it during these days. “In
the radiation belt, Big Sister told me that the most important things are
pure water filters and medicines. Any team without a pure water filter
cannot survive for more than three days. When facing any trouble,
antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs will be the key to saving lives.
Previously inside the region, we could buy a pile of these easily in the
stores. Outside here, I did not expect it to be…”
He became silent. Those who had not been to the outside of the region
would not have any idea that there existed a world out there which was
arduous to live in and that this world was actually the main environment
of the entire mother planet.
“You’ve finally found out? You all used to be little kids that lived
in a greenhouse. In the radiation belt, anyone, pay attention, anyone
would do anything just for a small piece of food or a vial of high-grade
pure water. Women would sell their bodies, men would toil like beasts of
burden and fight desperately with mutated beings. Anyone who can live
above fifty years of age is blessed,” Red Moon seemed to be deeply
moved. “What bad news…”
“So what do we do now?” Clint was at a loss.
“It’s okay. I have found a foreign aid for you. But it’s a pity
that he can’t help you for the time being… Hey!!” Red Moon suddenly
screamed in pain in the middle of the conversation. “That damn freak!
How did he get rid of my imprint!” his voice turned into doubt.
“What’s wrong, Lord?” Clint asked cautiously.
“Nothing, it’s none of your business. Go and make sure you train your
Willpower!” Red Moon replied impatiently. Comparing Nono whose talent
had been overlooked by him the first time with this trash-looking maggot,
his anger rose.
Red Moon was distracted just now. He was simultaneously talking to Clint
and Nonosiva, who was far away. But, the result was that there was a
forced disconnection from that side. The outer layer that was mainly the
means of his imprint control was actually eliminated and left with the
source alone. This equaled to peeling off the shell from a
shell-enveloped sweet and consuming the sweet itself.
“But it won’t be all lost if it’s eaten…” Red Moon said to
Looking at the silly-faced Clint again, Red Moon’s heart was filled
with sadness once more. If it wasn’t due to not having any other way
and having to pick this trash as the main heir, choosing a real
one-in-a-million talent like Nonosiva would certainly have restored some
of his glory by now; maybe already even reaching the standard of Level
