Almost one hundred tiger shark war chariots were hiding behind a ma.s.sive flaming meteorolite. They were all quiet like ferocious animals waiting for their preys, pretty much calm and persistent.
Many warriors with profound realms were standing on the tiger shark chariots. They didn't wear a uniform, but had the same cold and savage countenance.
Those warriors belonged to different races. s.h.i.+ Yan recognized the leader was a bald-headed Dark Spirit Clan's member. He had a mighty build, accompanying a savage appearance.
s.h.i.+ Yan's flow of Soul Consciousness was flying parallel to a sunbeam. With the flaming energy he had added to his Soul Consciousness, it was hard to detect his beam.
He secretly observed for a while. As he felt the situation wasn't so good, he retreated.
Standing on the main deck of the amethyst battles.h.i.+p, Princess Zi Yao was discussing the trip with Du Feng, Bergh, and the other warriors. They made the s.h.i.+p dodge the sunbeams as if they didn't have a fixed route.
All of them were soaked in sweat, as if they were lying in a steam pot. Their faces were reddened.
s.h.i.+ Yan was the same. However, he had restated his calm manner, and he didn't peek at the beautiful disaster next to him anymore.
While Zi Yao was talking with Bergh's group, she would throw him a glance from time to time. Her beautiful eyes were smiling, as if she wanted to see more of his stealthy act, considering it cute and interesting.
When she found that s.h.i.+ Yan had become calm, she started to concentrate more. As the princess found s.h.i.+ Yan had released his Soul Consciousness, she didn't notice him anymore and started to talk to Bergh's team about their next operations.
At this moment, s.h.i.+ Yan's gloomy eyes, which just had no target, brightened.
While frowning, he turned to Zi Yao, his face turning more solemn. "Hold on."
Princess Zi Yao furrowed her brows as she was surprised. "Hold on? Why do you want to stop here? We are moving pretty slow. Why do you want to stop?"
Du Feng and Bergh looked at him with confused eyes.
If he hadn't shown his formidable potentials, Du Feng and Bergh would have mocked him by now. However, as they were all afraid of him, they didn't dare to babble, giving him the chance to explain his idea.
"Do you want to go to that area? Yeah, we will reach that area after fifty miles, I guess." As s.h.i.+ Yan wasn't so sure. He considered his words more, extending one arm and pointing in a direction.
The others changed their visages.
Zi Yao nodded. "True. Although we're changing the direction constantly, we have to go through that area. That place will be safer for our battles.h.i.+p. It doesn't have many sunbeams, so we can reduce the danger." She paused for a while and then smiled at him. "You've surprised me as you can show the most appropriate direction when you've just been in the Solar Star Exploding Fragment Field for the first time. Tell me, how did you know we would have to go through that area?"
After she finished her explanation, s.h.i.+ Yan could confirm his information. He then said resolutely, "We can't go there!" Everybody got surprised.
"What has happened?" Princess Zi Yao's visage was somber. His att.i.tude made her anxious. "You've found something, perhaps?"
"I didn't know that you would have to go there. However, I recommend not to. There are almost one hundred tiger shark war chariots standing by. Also, I found several hundred warriors at different levels. They wear different clothes... And, the leader's a member of the Dark Spirit Clan, a bald headed one. His aura's really intimidating. I think he's stronger than you." s.h.i.+ Yan took a deep breath. "I think they are the s.p.a.ce pirates you've mentioned. And, our force isn't enough to counter them."
When he finished, Zi Yao, Du Feng, Bergh and the others had their countenances changed dramatically. They shuddered in thrill.
"How could you see them?" Du Feng screamed hoa.r.s.ely. "Is it real? Soul Consciousness will meet obstacles in the Solar Star Exploding Fragment Field, which makes its coverage shrink. How could you sense that area?"
Bergh and the other warriors also had a disbelieving look on their faces.
Zi Yao believed him.
Not only believing in him, she immediately ordered, "Stop!"
Bergh nodded and then screamed. Almost instantly, the amethyst battles.h.i.+p halted, hovering near some ma.s.sive meteorolites. It didn't move anymore.
"Tiger shark chariots... The s.h.i.+ny bald headed Dark Spirit Clan's man... strong aura..." Zi Yao mumbled with a solemn countenance. Shortly, she became grimaced. "Ka Tuo! It's b.l.o.o.d.y Slaughterer Ka Tuo!"
Du Feng and Bergh paled badly as if there was no blood running in their bodies.
"No, impossible. Is it a miscalculation?" Du Feng whined, scratching his head as he didn't want to believe in it. "Why is it that slaughtering star?"
"As s.h.i.+ Yan has just arrived in the Raging Flame Star Area, if he didn't see him, he couldn't describe in detail like that!" Zi Yao took a deep breath and then determined herself resolutely. "Define a new direction! We must avoid that area. b.l.o.o.d.y Slaughterer Ka Tuo rarely comes to this area. If he's prepared already, it's 90% sure we're his targets
"Ah!" Du Feng screamed in panic. "We have no grudges against him, right?"
Zi Yao's face grimaced. "Grudge? Did any of the ones he killed have a grudge against him? He's waiting there. It means someone has given him the information of our trip. Someone wants us to die!"
Du Feng suddenly got it. He discolored immediately. "Sis, you are saying that someone we know has sold us and asked him to kill us?"
"Yep, certainly. Otherwise, he couldn't make that correct timing." Zi Yao snorted impatiently. "At this moment, we shouldn't talk about this. First, we need to dodge b.l.o.o.d.y Slaughterer Ka Tuo. When we're safe, we will figure out who wants to take our lives!"
Du Feng paled.
Zi Yao and Bergh quickly determined a new route and instantly changed the direction of the amethyst battles.h.i.+p.
"s.h.i.+ Yan, help me. Keep an eye on them. When they have any commotion, report me immediately." Princess Zi Yao didn't smile anymore, talking to s.h.i.+ Yan. "If we can dodge this disaster, you will be the hero. I will save that quota to the Extreme Purgatory Field for you."
"Sis, didn't you agree with Ao Gera?" Du Feng screamed in fright.
Bergh was astounded. "Your Highness, if you give it to s.h.i.+ Yan, what should we do with Ao Gera? He's not easy to deal with."
"I will arrange his business. Don't worry, I'll handle it." Zi Yao knitted her brows as if she got a headache. To make s.h.i.+ Yan fight for them, she had to use her initial capital.
Although s.h.i.+ Yan didn't know what the Extreme Purgatory Field was, through his observation during this period, he could guess it was the best place for warriors to train their souls and spirit. Seeing Zi Yao promise to give him her only quota, he was secretly excited.
He immediately gathered his Soul Consciousness, extending towards the direction he had sensed earlier.
The amethyst battles.h.i.+p continued its journey. The ma.s.sive bronze steams.h.i.+p was following neither slowly nor fast.
After fifteen minutes.
s.h.i.+ Yan slightly paled, speaking up in a low tone. "Not good."
His eyes flared with strange light, looking at Zi Yao, Du Feng, and Bergh, then s.h.i.+fted his look towards the ma.s.sive bronze steams.h.i.+p behind them. "Princess Zi Yao, can b.l.o.o.d.y Slaughterer Ka Tuo sense our location with this far distance?"
"Ka Tuo's at the Third Sky of King G.o.d Realm. Although we have the same realm, he entered the realm earlier than me. His power should be much denser and richer than mine. Anyway, the Soul Consciousness's coverage is limited in this Solar Star Exploding Fragment Field. I think he shouldn't be able to locate us." Zi Yao hesitated for a while and then added. "Anyway, if he's like you with many secrets, perhaps... he can do that."
s.h.i.+ Yan was startled, squeezing a forced smile. "Then how could he know we've changed our direction? He also changed his location. Now, he has blockaded us again."
After he finished, Zi Yao, Du Feng, and Bergh became more grimaced.
"Is it possible that one of you has sent him the intelligence stealthily?" s.h.i.+ Yan considered his words, mumbling.
Zi Yao was ashen as she thought about this possibility. A gleam of panic crossed her eyes. She pondered for seconds and then said, "Bergh, Antrim, you two bring Prince Du Feng and leave. The amethyst battles.h.i.+p has big volume, so it will be slow in the Solar Star Exploding Fragment Field. You guys take an amethyst chariot and cross the Solar Star Exploding Fragment Field. Go straight ahead, don't pause."
Du Feng and Bergh screamed in unison.
"Leave! Now!" Zi Yao's face was somber. "I'm sure they are not just targeting our goods. They want our lives! Even in our organization, I don't think we're safe. But I believe in Bergh and Antrim. You two have always followed me. You won't have other thoughts. Promise me, take Du Feng home safely!"
Bergh and another warrior were shaken. They kneeled down, talking with stooped heads. "We won't fail you!"
Then, Bergh and Antrim shouted. A war chariot flew out from the ma.s.sive amethyst battles.h.i.+p. However, it was different from Zi Yao's chariot. It should be another one.
"Sis, I don't want to leave. I want to fight shoulder with shoulder with you! If we have to leave, we should go together!" Du Feng wasn't so frightened at this moment as he shouted, "Even if he's the b.l.o.o.d.y Slaughterer Ka Tuo, we will make him pay!"
"Stop talking nonsense!" Zi Yao shouted ear-splittingly. As her thought flickered, she put her jade-like hand on Du Feng's shoulder to restrain his power. She didn't mind the painful struggling in his eyes as Zi Yao turned to Bergh and Antrim. "Take him immediately!"
Bergh nodded heavily. "Your Highness, don't worry. Even if we have to die, we will deliver our Prince safely!"
Then, they took Du Feng to the amethyst chariot. Without any words, they turned into a bunch of purple light, zooming far away in just a blink.
"If we can survive this trap, don't worry, I will never mistreat you!" As Zi Yao could relax her nerves a bit, she looked at s.h.i.+ Yan with great seriousness on her face and then smiled. "Glory and wealth, beautiful ladies and servants… Everything you want, it won't be too far from reach."
s.h.i.+ Yan's countenance was indifferent. He smiled naturally, "Then, I have to thank you in advance."
He had been through so many deadly circ.u.mstances, in which he would have died for sure. He believed firmly that only putting him into the harshest and bloodies battlefield could give him chances to break through.
He felt that an opportunity was waving at him!
