“Alright, even if you are more than 500 years old and are older than
me, what about that?” Garen exhaled. “The key question now is, what
are your plans for the future?”
“We will not have a future.” Six faintly closed his eyes. “I advise
you to better leave this place immediately. Stay further away, then
perhaps there would still be chance of living.”
“Can high radiation levels prevent their search?” Garen suddenly
Six opened his eyes and gave a puzzled look.
“Don’t you feel any difference in the environment here?” Garen
Only then did Six felt that something was amiss. The radiation
concentration here was denser than that in the outside world, at least
twice as much as outside.
Garen did not elaborate but let him sense the situation here quietly. He
went out and started packing. High radiation concentration could indeed
cut off various searching signals, but this was not certain. It could
only extend time. The key now was to arrive as quickly as possible at the
secret region where the Energy Machinists were located. That was where
outsiders could never enter.
Six Divine Wind General had once saved his life. Repaying any debt of
gratitude he owed was Garen’s principle. It was impossible for him to
give up and flee on his own. Therefore, the most urgent thing now was to
prepare to leave as soon as possible.
The distance to Secret Region from here was not close.
He kept the Biochemical Pool away properly, took some food packs and
placed them on two Big Wild Wolves.
East Perrin and the others from the top floor of the basement were
waiting at the entrance of the second floor. They had already helped
Garen packed some necessary equipment, such as a one-time toxin detection
capsule, which was used to detect poison in water sources and food to
identify whether they were consumable. They did not use it when they came
here so it was given to Garen.
There were also some remaining low-radiation pieces of meat and water
from the base. This was what Garen specifically wanted for Sixth Divine
Wind General. He did not need it for himself.
In addition, some miscellaneous small things were also being packed by
“You…really want to leave?” East Perrin approached him and asked in
a low voice.
Garen signalled to Sinno to pick up the bundle and nodded.
“This time, all of you staying here must utilize the high radiation
concentration to hide yourself. Do not expose yourself. The next Predator
Wave will be more violent. Be careful.”
“Yes, we will.” East Perrin nodded. The rest of the people were in a
tacit understanding and did not disturb the two. East Perrin liked Garen
and everyone felt it. But now, she could not go with him.
Truth to be told, at the bottom of her heart, East Perrin wanted Garen to
ask her, but…she could not leave behind these last few people of Leo
City. There were also two children and she was the strongest powerhouse
here. If she were to leave, their survival rate would be very low even
with the Big Wild Wolves here. Moreover, them staying here was the best
way as compared to going away with Garen. After all, there were many
people in that Secret Region. Once the training method skill they acquire
was exposed, it was hard to predict the consequences.
After carefully consideration, as long as this place was hidden properly,
it was entirely possible to build a small, self-sufficient base in the
hills. Living on for many years would not be a problem. It would be much
safer to wait until years later when their training method had reached a
certain level before going out again.
“Alright, Sinno. Let’s go.” Garen patted East Perrin’s shoulders.
During this period of time here, he had successfully managed to avoid the
threat of Predators by borrowing the strength of Leo City. Of course, he
had also helped them to survive and preserved a remnant. As all good
things must come to an end, it was time to leave now.
Sinno carried the bundle and walked behind Garen. They returned to the
room where Sixth Divine Wind General was lying in and put him on a simple
stretcher placed on the back of a Big Wild Wolf. Garen and Sinno each
rode a Big Wild Wolf.
They headed towards the exit of the second floor of the basement.
Sixth Divine Wind General also saw this strange group of people. He was
surprised that they were all doing fine in this area of high
radiation level. However, the people’s attention were all focused on
Garen and Sinno.
The three people rode the Big Wild Wolf to the second floor. Others also
followed to the second floor. Upon reaching the exit of the first floor,
the basement slate was pushed upwards and the three Big Wild Wolves went
out one after another. Their movements were slow and steady.
“Will you still come back?!” East Perrin suddenly shouted after Garen
Garen waved his hand.
“If it is destined.”
He went down along the hill. East Perrin and the party stood on top of
the hill and looked down at Garen the three who were slowly descending.
Malone clutched East Perrin’s hand tightly.
“He is just a passer-by. This place is just a brief stopover in his
life. We…are two different kinds of people…” Malone sighed. He had
witnessed too many separations in his life. He was clear that although
East Perrin had an excellent aptitude, she could only advance to the
vertex of Level Five and at the most five. This was the limit in
radiation belt. Without a Mech, even the strongest talents could not
break into the resonance level. What was more, he had repeatedly checked
that the aptitude limit of East Perrin was indeed at Level Five. This is
a limitation by the genes.
About Garen’s aptitude, he was not able to see through it. Although he
did not check it, the future of Energy Machinist could only be known by
the Energy Machinist themselves. From the look of Garen’s various
performances, Level Five would not be his end.
East Perrin looked at the three people below from far. The three Big Wild
Wolves gradually could only be seen as little spots.
She felt a little melancholy. But with Garen gone, life had to go on
still. She also had to lead the last remnant of Leo City to kick-start
and regenerate into a new and stronger Leo City!
Fanny stood behind the two. Watching the firmly-forward moving Sinno, he
sighed softly. He had always treated this girl as his own sister. Now
that his sister was leaving, he could no longer continue to follow her
back and protect her…
One hand rested on his shoulder. The middle-aged woman, Shangrella looked
at him with a comforting gaze.
“Sinno will live well, even better than us, because she followed Mr.
Fanny nodded heavily and did not speak but only sighed deeply.
Night fell. A red moon hung in the sky. Beside it were two blue and white
satellites that were smaller in size. They were releasing a faint light
in the night sky.
On the grayish black grassland, the three persons rode the Big Wild
Wolves and headed steadily towards a direction in the grassland.
The three Big Wild Wolves were arranged in an inverted-V formation. The
one Garen rode was on the front. Sixth Divine Wind General was tied on a
stretcher with a rope to prevent him from falling. However, the
continuous undulating back of the Big Wild Wolf was not suitable for
lying down, making him extremely uncomfortable.
Sinno’s gaze was steady as she followed behind Garen. She was
constantly alert of their surroundings and its movements.
The grey-black grassland looked endless. The wind blew through the grass
from time to time and made a buzzing sound.
“Where do you want to go?” Six asked in a low voice, but the sound
was clear enough for both to hear.
“Can’t say for the time being, but you can be assured that I will do
my best to protect you.” Garen answered without looking back. He was
not only moving forward currently. At the same time, he was working on
the calculations of Energy Machinist Level Four. Big Wild Wolf already
had the direction to the destination in its mind. He only needed to sit
firmly on its back.
“Was that Willpower transmission?” Garen noticed that the voice just
now was unique.
“This is a simple skill that can be used once Willpower achieve
resonance skill. Some talented ones do not even need resonance level.”
He sized up the Big Wild Wolf underneath his body. “You are also an
Energy Machinist. I overlooked that.”
“This is the basic reconnaissance unit that I developed myself. How is
it? Not bad, right?” Garen knew that the other party was well-informed
and probably also knew much about Energy Machinists.
“I don’t know much about your profession, but I have seen some
reconnaissance cannon fodder creatures. Yours can sustain for a very long
duration. As a reconnaissance force, it is almost the same as the regular
Level One combat army unit.” Six nodded slightly and gave a good
evaluation. “The speed of some Level One combat army unit, like the
more powerful poisonous bees, eagles-type, or leopards-type, is just like
yours. Combining with other qualities, this wolf can be considered as
medium-low class of Level One. Considering it is only a reconnaissance
unit, this is very good.”
“Oh? Just medium-low?” Garen looked back at him. “Then what’s
considered as medium and high class?”
“I have not come across many. Most of the Energy Machinists stay on
their own sites. The average person would not provoke them. This group of
people is known to be notoriously difficult to deal with. They deal with
radiation a lot and are feared by many. Generally, they also won’t
randomly go to other pilots’ places.” Six shook his head slightly.
“But I’ve heard that only Level Four Energy Machinists are capable of
creating the official combat army units. Official combat army units. The
Level One combat army elite units developed by some Energy Machinists who
took the elite path could fight with Level Two pilots. That is terrific.
Some who took the group route are able to nurture a multi-headed combat
unit. Their joint attack and array tactics are all very strong. If the
same level Energy Machinists can hid properly, they would be invincible.
If they can’t win, they can flee and escape once the situation turns
Garen nodded. He had also found out about these from Mincar’s internal
network, but they were not as clear as Six’s systematic description.
“Also, some Energy Machinists are part-time pilots. Although they are
not strong, they are not without combat strength. Utilizing some
group-influence props is of no problem. Of course, this kind of prop is
expensive, but Energy Machinist is not a profession that lacks money,”
Six calmly said. “I can probably guess where you are headed.”
“Is it Secret Region?”
Garen smiled and did not deny it.
“If it is Secret Region, indeed it is possible to avoid the other
party’s search. However, the premise is that we can get there.” Six
looked up at the night sky. “They are here.”
A red meteor suddenly descended down from the sky and flew in the
direction of Garen them three. Even though it was a few kilometres away,
the powerful and terrible energy field was so apparent that Garen and
Sinno could scarcely breathe.
“Inherited Level again!!” Garen’s face stiffened. The last scene in
which he was suppressed by Seventh Divine Wind General once again came to
mind. In this moment, the situation was completely the same with back
then, except that the place had changed to the grassland in radiation
“It’s Four…he is still a few kilometers away, He had only
preliminary sensed my direction but hasn’t really found me yet. Go
quickly!” Sixth Divine Wind General calmly instructed.
