The Strongest Gene Chapter 471-480

Chapter 471: The End Is Also the Beginning

Star City.

A dazzling radiance bloomed and a shocking explosion roared, alarming countless people. The heavy downpour descending from the sky repressed this sound somewhat, and the pitch black sky stopped the dazzling radiance from traveling too far. Despite this, nothing was able to erase the terrifying power that was being emanated.

The entire ground was tinted red with blood. The main army of the devil race was all killed before they were able to even go through the entrance. On the ground, countless mournful howls could be heard. Dismembered corpses of the devil race members were sprawled everywhere. Even the A-class warriors of Star City were shocked by this sight. Was this the power of their Genetic Union? It was truly terrifying.

One ought to know that all these freshly killed devil race members were at the power level of A-class warriors. And now, they had all been delivered a crushing defeat. Too powerful! This was the first thought that surfaced in everyone’s mind. At times like this, the stronger the power demonstrated by the Genetic Union, the happier they were.

Suddenly, Han Yula walked forth expressionlessly and dipped his finger into the blood on the ground. After tasting the finger with his tongue, he asserted, “No black rain was inserted in the blood here.”
Everyone else: “…” Do we need you to tell us that? It is obvious that the newly spilled blood is all red in color.

They were also rather shocked by the fact that the blood on the ground had obviously been tainted with all sorts of yellowish pollutants yet he had still dared to taste it with his tongue. Was this one of the reasons this heartless person was so feared?

“They can place a disguise on the black rain to make it look red if they wish to.” Han Yula merely glanced at them coldly before continuing, “Even if there is a 100% chance that this blood is not mixed with the black rain, I will not take that gamble. Rather, I will taste it myself to verify it properly. Moreover…”   Han  Yula  shut  his  eyes.  From  the  blood,  an unfamiliar power could be felt.

“Can this be counted as our victory?” someone asked in a low voice. After all, all the devil race invaders had been killed right outside their entrance.

These formidable fellows had all fallen in the face of Star City’s high-tech weapons. After all, the devil races bodies were much larger than a normal human’s and were easily aimed at by the human weapons. Every single shot fired by the cannons had been able to hit a devil race member. As they stared ahead, there were no signs of new invaders coming.

Shua! Shua!

The black rain was still descending unendingly.

“Hum—” Suddenly, an oppressive sound echoed. Distantly, from amid the darkness, with the help of the feeble lighting system of Star City, a huge figure could be seen appearing slowly from far away. Every single step that figure took resulted in a huge earthquake.

Bang! Bang!

That huge figure approached them one step at a time. Everyone’s mood sunk. Earlier, they had been making use of the weakness of the devil race members’ having huge bodies to kill them. Now, though, wasn’t this newly appeared devil race member too huge in size?

Bang!

Accompanied by thundering footsteps, that figure approached them. Immediately after getting a clear look at it, they all inhaled a mouthful of cold breath. This was an extremely ugly devil race member. Its entire body was green with black spots all over. Its skin was wrinkled and thick, while its body was as tall as a building. If one had to use a word to describe this newly appeared fellow, then one could say that this was a huge and ugly frog.

Someone berated the huge frog. “So those tadpole beasts earlier were only here to look for this mom of theirs?”
Bang! Bang!

The huge devil race beast neared.

“Attack!” Han Yula commanded without any mercy.

Bang!

The energy weapons started firing again.

Alarming them all, that devil race freak started swelling suddenly like a balloon as it absorbed all the energy attacks fired at it before spitting them out after taking aim in a certain direction.

Bang!

A terrifying radiance was let loose. A ray of light was spat out, destroying a building with weapons on it. The rest of them were greatly alarmed as they saw this. This fellow here was capable of absorbing energy? Not only that, it was also capable of using it back against them? What a terrifying ability! How had they figured out how to deal with energy weapons? This was, after all, a modern weapon. Hold on… Yes, the ancient race!

Back then, despite the fact that the ancient race had not had energy weapons, they had been energy users, unlike the barbarians. These energy-handling methods were probably something the devil race had developed to be used against the ancient race back then. Now, though, these methods were being unleashed upon humanity. Perhaps, as far as these newly awakened devil race members were concerned, humanity was equivalent to the ancient race. After all, if one did not look clearly, the human race truly resembled the ancient race. Perhaps this somewhat unfamiliar human race was simply a part of the ancient race—a result of the several thousands of years of evolutions of the ancient race
—as far as the devil race was concerned.

“Absorbing  energy,  eh?”  Han  Yula’s  eyes  gleamed  coldly. “Adjust   all   weapons   to   the   highest   intensity.   Continue attacking!” Han Yula ordered.

“But…”
The faces of the rest greened as they heard this command. Highest intensity? For real? Even the current low intensity of their weapons was able to destroy a single armed building of theirs with one shot after being returned by the frog. If they were to fire their weapons at the highest intensity, they would most probably die before even realizing what had happened. After all, they had seen with their own eyes the power of this frog here.

“You all, attack together with me. Those who disobey shall be killed.” Han Yula had no intention of providing them with any explanations. As the rest heard his words, their bodies chilled.

They exchanged glances before saying with clenched teeth, “All out, then!” Some of them were already able to guess what Han Yula was planning. Therefore, the only thing left to do was fight.

Bang!

Once again, the energy weapons started firing toward that huge frog.

Bang! Bang!

The terrifying radiance bloomed as the boundless energy landed on the huge frog. All the attacks of their energy weapons and the attacks of all their A-class warriors were directed at the huge frog. Once again, the huge frog started swelling to the point its entire body became a huge sphere. All their attacks had seemingly entered a bottomless abyss. They could only watch on as that huge frog continued enlarging before its huge mouth suddenly opened, aiming straight at them.

“This is bad. It’s counterattacking.”
Everyone was alarmed. Right at this moment, Han Yula made his move.

Shua!

A resplendent silvery radiance flashed out. This silvery flash did not appear formidable, yet it was the final straw that overwhelmed the giant frog, as the limit of energy the giant frog could contain was now strained to its limit.

Hum— The huge frog was still trying to open its mouth, yet it failed to open its mouth properly. Since its body was too huge now and it was now entirely round, it was unable to even open its mouth properly. It had evidently reached its limit in the amount of energy it could absorb.

Hum—
Yet even now, its body was still enlarging.

“Retreat!”
The Genetic Union members retreated hastily. Immediately afterward…
Bang!

The earth trembled, followed by a huge explosion that rocked the entirety of Star City. At the entrance of Star City that had initially been littered with the corpses of devil race members, a huge crater appeared. That huge frog that had swallowed such a huge amount of energy had ultimately exploded. Even the dark sky seemed clearer due to the explosion.

In the sky, the dark cloud shrouding the sky had cleared for the first time, revealing the silhouettes of all the devil race members hiding behind it. One after another, devil race members that had never been seen before appeared.

“Good  chance!”   Han  Yula  pointed  at  the  sky  without hesitating. “Kill!”
Bang!

First, the energy weapons started firing toward the devil race members. At the same time, all the Genetic Union members charged up. Now that the veil of mysteriousness shrouding the devil race had been lifted, the devil race had lost its biggest advantage. Even if they also possessed the combat power of A- class warriors, being newly awakened, they were still too weak compared to the A-class warriors of the Genetic Union that were all veteran combatants. In a short amount of time, all the devil race members were killed. In the entire expanse of dark sky, not a single devil race member remained.

Everyone looked up at the sky. “Is it over?”
Shua! Shua!

The rain was still descending without stop. Suddenly, the ground started trembling, and a power that caused one to feel flustered gushed out of the ground.

Chapter 472: Sealing Devil Race… Who Are You Trying to Cheat?

An odd liquid rumbled out. Despite their efforts, the soil of Star City had ultimately failed to avoid being dyed black. Apart from the portion of the city that was still being defended by the Genetic Union members, the rest of the soil in Star City had already been tinted black. The black liquid with a layer of dim radiance around it streamed out, flooding the black soil speedily.

Hum—
The ground started trembling slightly.

“This   seems   somewhat   different   than   what   happened previously.”
The rest were anxious. They had once seen the reawakening of these so-called devil race members. In truth, said awakening was rather simple. The devil race members would simply crawl up from underneath the ground. But now, the black liquid and the dim radiance that had abruptly appeared seemed rather different from what had been seen before.

Hum—
Hum—
The earth trembled, and that power that caused one to feel flustered increased in intensity.

Bang!

Suddenly, the sound of something bursting apart echoed.
Next, a huge palm stretched out from amid the liquid.

Clang!

As the huge hand landed on the ground, the earth trembled. They were all alarmed. “What freak is that?”
“What terrifying size.”
“It’s actually bigger than the previous frog?”
Han Yula and the rest braced themselves. “Be careful.”
Facing such a terrifying life-form, none of them dared to look down on it. As for Chen Feng, who was watching from far away, he had a rather odd feeling.

In actuality, he was not a pure genetic warrior. Rather, he was a comparatively powerful gene producer. As such, he knew much more about gene production than everyone here. That was also the reason why he kept having an odd feeling when he saw that huge hand.

Mhm… what is it that looks so off? As Chen Feng pondered, he remembered this scene. A possibility surfaced in his mind. At that, he checked with Spirit. After using one luck value, his guess was verified. Indeed, he was pursuing the correct line of thought. After confirming that, he continued his analysis in the same direction and was able to obtain the answer he wanted soon enough.

So this is the case. Chen Feng’s eyes lit up. “Spirit, deduce the formula for me. I want to show them clearly what a gene producer can do.”
“All right.” Spirit was still as reliable as ever.


Presently, Han Yula had finally ordered them to destroy that huge palm that had appeared. Since this fellow had yet to fully appear, they should take this chance to destroy it first. Alas, they were rather helpless. Even after trying numerous methods, they failed to deal any damage to that huge palm. This incoming devil race member seemed much more powerful than all of them, Han Yula included. “This is bad.”
They started worrying. Right at this moment, a genetic warrior ran over before stopping beside Han Yula and whispering something to him.
“Are you sure?”  Han Yula asked with his brows furrowed. Ultimately, he nodded his head, signifying his agreement. Shortly after, several genetic warriors appeared carrying numerous buckets of some bizarre liquid before directly pouring the liquid onto the rumbling black liquid. At this, an astonishing sight appeared.

Shua!

Almost instantly, the black liquid with a layer of dim radiance around it was immediately frozen.

As this happened, that huge palm seemed to have noticed that something wasn’t right. The palm shook rapidly as it struggled. Alas, the struggle was for naught. The spot where the palm had stretched out of had completely dried up, fixing the entire palm right where it appeared. The only way the owner of the palm could continue moving would be to chop its own palm off.

“It’s  been  sealed!”  they  exclaimed  in  astonishment.  What advanced technology was that?

Han Yula looked at the genetic warriors and asked, “Is this something the gene producer produced? The excellent producer you mentioned?”
The genetic warrior nodded. “Indeed. However, I was only shown an excellent producer badge. The actual excellent producer is nowhere to be seen. The one who handed it to me is a youngster called Chen Feng.”
“Chen Feng…” “If it’s him, then there’s nothing weird about it.” Han Yula patted the genetic warrior’s shoulder. “You have been in seclusion for way too long. The youngster you mentioned is precisely the excellent producer. If it’s him…”
One could not forget that it was rumored that Chen Feng had just eliminated some peak A-class warriors recently. Moreover, being one of the peak A-class warriors of Genetic Union, Han Yula had the privilege of knowing more information than others and was aware that the reason they had been able to prepare for all this in advance was due to the intelligence provided by Chen Feng. This perverse and logic-defying producer was walking an extremely unique path.

Chen Feng…
Han Yula gazed toward a certain corner of Star City. Previously, he had felt like someone was watching them. Now that he thought about it, that person was probably Chen Feng. The ground trembled, alarming everyone present. However, after shaking several times, the huge palm still failed to free itself. Instead, due to the intense struggle, some traces of blood were now appearing at its wrist.

They were shocked as they saw this.

“What a powerful seal.”
“How did this seal come about?” they asked the genetic warrior that had come on behalf of Chen Feng earlier.

“Oh.” That person scratched his head and said, “Chen Feng told me that some spatial collapse…dimension… tear… or something is the reason this dim radiance has appeared. As a counter, he used some solidifying agent or something like that.”
The rest glared at him. “What are you even talking about?
You can even forget about something so important?” That person smiled forcefully. “It’s not that. He was using terms only producers normally use. Those long and hard-to- remember terms, and the codename was wanz110 or something… How am I supposed to remember all that? But then, I have the general gist of how it worked. Chen Feng indeed gave me a rough explanation.”
Their eyes lit up. “Oh, let us know, then.”
“Mhm…   it’s  actually  quite  simple.”   That  person  started imitating the tone of voice used by Chen Feng. “The devil race members might only be able to appear through the polluted soil. The stronger and bigger the devil race member is, the larger the amount of black soil that is required for the awakening. An ordinary devil race member can appear instantly and easily, yet this does not apply to this huge devil race member. Therefore, the amount of polluted soil here is too little for that fellow to actually appear. The ‘portal’ will be too tight, so to say. Hence… mhm…” As that person reached here, he appeared somewhat awkward. After bracing himself, he continued, “If it’s too tight, well, use some lubricant and the devil race member will be able to squeeze through.”
Shua! Instantly, everyone sunk into silence. They looked at that huge hand before looking at the endless black rain. During this perilous moment of Star City’s, they wished to maintain a solemn expression at all times, but these words caused their lips to twitch without stop.

Even if you are trying to use some layman’s terms, this isn’t proper, right? This is too excessive! What do you mean by using some lubricant?

“As for the odd liquid that’s rumbling out…”
They had “what the f*ck” expressions on their faces.

“I know the answer for that!”  That person patted his thigh and stated with a solemn expression, “That is actually called Radiance of Demonic Spirit, something capable of radiating a huge amount of power to ease the awakening of the devil race members. This is a holy item of the devil race.”
“This is the initial term that Chen Feng used when he was explaining to you, right?” Han Yula asked coldly. That person appeared rather awkward. “Yeah.”
Han Yula continued, asking, “What about the layman’s terms he used to describe that liquid, then?”
“…”   That  person  paused  before  saying,  “He  called  it lubricant.”
Their lips twitched as they heard this. Indeed .

“How about the liquid that we added toward the end?”
“Oh, Chen Feng said that the liquid is something he produced. It has no other function except freezing the lubricant—oh, no, I mean freezing the Radiance of Demonic Spirit, turning it into something like superglue. Oh yeah, the initial term used by Chen Feng was ‘stabilizing the seal of the devil race members’.”
Shua! Instantly, everyone lapsed into silence as they became speechless. Superglue? Mhm… stabilizing the seal of the devil race? Sure. As they looked at the palm that was still struggling there, they started pitying it. They were not aware of what the owner of that palm was feeling presently. However, when they
thought of the analogy used by Chen Feng… If the lubricant one was using were to suddenly turn into superglue, that would truly be tragic.

How pitiful. Everyone looked at the struggling palm. Sorry, because of Chen Feng, it had completely dried up here. No matter what, no Radiance of Demonic Spirit would appear here. After a long time, that huge palm gave up struggling.

Hu. Hu.

Black radiance started shining out of some different locations.

Hum— The ground trembled as numerous devil race members appeared instantly. They had finally given up on trying to first waken their stronger members. Rather, they were sticking with a simpler method.

Bang! Bang!

Numerous devil race members appeared without stop.

Chapter 473: We… Are Back!

The devil race was coming. After failing to awaken a boss- grade devil race member, the devil race had decided to stick with their regular awakening method. Now, they had chosen to simply wake their members using the soil that was already tinted black. Since they weren’t using the Radiance of Demonic Spirit anymore, the solidifying agent prepared by Chen Feng would no longer work.

Bang! Bang!

The earth collapsed as numerous ferocious-looking devil race members awakened.

Howl!

Numerous howls resounded, and in the dark sky, a bizarre green and blue radiance appeared.

Everyone inhaled deeply. “Finally, they are coming.” From the start, they had been aware that a huge battle was unavoidable. The devil race members that had appeared earlier had merely been a prelude to this huge battle that was about to erupt. Their true enemies were those underneath them, those awakening from the soil beneath Star City. The devil race members that had been hibernating in the soil were all able to awaken through this method. It was something nobody could stop.

“Kill!”  Han  Yula  ordered.  As  long  as  there  were  enemies around, he was not a person to show any hesitation.

Bang!

The energy weapons started firing.

“Kill!”
The genetic warriors charged forth. Amid the heavy downpour, the Genetic Union warriors clashed with the devil race members. As they clashed, raindrops mixed with blood, dying this piece of land violet. These devil race members were very powerful. The crucial part of the devil race’s plan back then was the long years of hibernation and condensation underground enabling them to be much more powerful after their reawakening. This was what they had planned and this was also the reason they had decided to hibernate in the first place. Only by doing so would they be confident that the moment of their reawakening would also be the moment where the entire world would be conquered by them.

“We… are back…” An ancient language was once again heard in this world as hoarse voices uttered these words without stop. The devil race was, after all, not mutated beasts. They possessed intelligence and had a proper civilization and language of their own. Ultimately, they had been powerhouses back in the ancient era.

The devil race members that had appeared were all A class. Even an ordinary recently reawakened foot soldier of theirs was as strong as an A-class warrior. Their commoners had long vanished with time, leaving behind only those capable of awakening from their hibernation. All these were elites among the devil race. These were the strongest warriors of their race, who had been forged through countless years of hibernation, nurtured by the vitality of a huge amount of their own that had been used as a sacrifice back then, the strongest warriors that had exhausted an entire civilization to forge. Howl! Howl!

All the devil race soldiers were powerful and ferocious.

“Kill!”
The Genetic Union warriors did not waste a single second as they were trying to get rid of the devil race members at this moment where these devil race members were still in their weakest state. Otherwise…
Pu! Pu!

One figure collapsed after another. Finally, the intensity of this battle reached its peak.

“This moment has finally arrived…”  Chen Feng muttered. This was war. Nobody could hope to survive by mere fluke. He was able to produce unique gene reagents to stop the experts of the devil race from reawakening. He was also able to provide support to others. Alas, he was still not qualified to fight on the front lines as he was still too weak. He was, after all, still not an A-class warrior.

This was a battle only A-class warriors could participate in. Under certain unique conditions, Chen Feng might be able to unleash an extremely powerful combat power. However, that power he could muster was only a short burst of power capable of killing perhaps only one or two enemies. In a battle of this scale with so many enemies, he wouldn’t be able to do much at all.

Therefore, he had to keep his trump card until the crucial moment in the hopes that it would be of some help. Those truly in charge of participating in this battle were ultimately the Genetic Union members.

Pu!

Blood splattered about unceasingly. This piece of land in front of the Star City entrance was now a battlefield. The newly reawakened devil race members were obviously still in a daze and were not fully clear headed yet. As such, the Genetic Union warriors, who were veteran combatants, all worked together to kill a huge amount of devil race experts. However, as time passed, devil race members that were even stronger seemed to be reawakening. Things appeared rather bad for the Genetic Union at the moment.

Bang! Bang!

Some of the Genetic Union members had even been forced back from the front line by the devil race members. At a certain location, the initially firm soil suddenly turned soft.

“Careful.”
The genetic warrior there stepped back rapidly.

A split second after he stepped back, a terrifying devil race member burst out of the ground before immediately swallowing a random devil race member nearby. Howl!

After swallowing that devil race member, it burped.

Hu—
A scary flame ignited around its body.

“What is that?”
Those who saw what happened were all alarmed.

Bang! Bang!

This terrifying devil race member started its attack. With its huge body at a height of six meters and the flame around its entire body, it was akin to a fireball with extraordinary strength. On the battlefield, nobody seemed to be its match. Han Yula decided to personally face that newly appeared devil race member. “Let me deal with it.”
Alas…
Bang!

All his attacks were ineffective. Energy attacks, physical attacks, all of them were ineffective. Even when weapons landed on the thick and round abdomen of this devil race member, the weapons bounced away. Even sharp blades and arrows did not work. Nothing seemed capable of damaging this devil race member.

Everyone  was  horrified.  “What  damnable  thing  is  this?” Despite the fact that this devil race member did not possess too powerful an attack, its defense was truly astonishing. Coupled with its huge size, it was akin to a berserk beast. By itself, it was able to keep seven powerful genetic warriors busy.

Everyone was anxious. “This won’t do…”
Regardless of how weak that devil race member’s attacks were, it was still A class. If they ignored it, the consequences would definitely be fatal. However, if they continued getting tied down by this thing, the overall combat power of the Genetic Union would suffer a significant drop.

And when that happened, they would not be able to kill those newly awakened devil race members in time. And by the time the newly awakened devil race members all regained their full consciousness, the devil race would become even stronger. And next, a vicious circle would be formed. Therefore, they had to deal with this fellow here.

Unfortunately for them, regardless of what they did, everything seemed ineffective. In actuality, it wasn’t particularly hard to deal with this fellow. Using piercing attacks or something similar would be sufficient. As long as a genetic warrior with such an ability was here, this devil race member would be dealt with easily enough. Alas, there was no such genetic warrior here. As abilities with piercing attacks were generally not part of any well-known or proper ability set, these abilities weren’t popular. As such, it was quite normal for the genetic warriors deployed here to not have such abilities.

“Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah, when I return from this, I will most certainly train a Genetic Union member with piercing-related abilities.”
“Yeah, sure. What should we do now, though?”
“Well, we can only keep at it.”
They clenched their teeth. Thereupon, an entire group of them continued keeping this huge devil race member occupied while trying to kill other devil race members at the same time. During such a crucial moment, they had no intention of wasting any power available to them. However, just as they thought that they had things under control, that fellow started raging. A terrifying power erupted as that huge devil race member rolled like a fireball before knocking into a genetic warrior that was in the midst of battle.

“Careful!”
The expressions of the rest changed greatly as they saw this. The targeted genetic warrior had noticed this as well. Unfortunately, his discovery came a tad bit too late.

Xiu!

Turning into a dazzling red streak, the fireball slammed into that genetic warrior.

Bang!

A huge explosion erupted at the point of impact. Everyone’s heart thumped. “This is bad.”

Chapter 474: Let Me Deal with This

A huge explosion erupted. Everyone looked over in alarm, and their eyes widened abruptly at what they saw. There, as the huge devil race member was about to knock into its targeted genetic warrior, its advance had been blocked. In its way was a youth that was not particularly tall in height. His hand was outstretched, pressed against that devil race member’s body.

Chi! Chi!

The flames surged violently yet failed to deal any sort of damage to that person. He looked young, yet on his head was no hair at all. Under the dazzling radiance of the flame that was shining on him, his bald head looked like a recently boiled soy-sauce egg. Presently, on this particular “soy-sauce egg” was a rather ferocious expression that was aimed that devil race member, “Back then, the ones who interrupted my ‘battle’ was you devil race folks, right?”
Ka! Ka! He took two steps forward, pushing that devil race member backward.

“Xu Fei!”
“It’s that kid?”
“Holy shit, I haven’t seen him for a short while and he has suddenly become so strong?”
Everyone was shocked when they saw this. Different from Chen Feng, Xu Fei was indeed a full-fledged member of the Genetic Union. As such, even though Xu Fei hadn’t been that active in his mission participation, they had still seen him hanging around every now and then. It was truly unexpected that this junior back then was now so very valiant.

“Scram!” 
The fireball was punched back, smashing a huge crater into the ground.

“Are you fine?”  Xu Fei asked as he pulled up the genetic warrior that had almost been killed by the fireball earlier.

“I’m fine,”  that person stated gratefully, “Thank you. Why are you here?”
This was a battle between A classes. Therefore, only A-class genetic warriors had been notified to come here. Even though Xu Fei had saved them, with his present strength, he was not supposed to be here. By right, he wasn’t supposed to even know about this. In that case, why was he here?

Xu Fei smiled. “Someone informed me.” 
“But…” Someone was still trying to say something, but that huge devil race member was already back on its feet now. It was, after all, still an A class, and its physical body was extremely powerful. Therefore, it was natural that this devil race member had not been defeated by a single punch from Xu Fei.

Xu Fei laughed heartily. “Let me deal with this fellow here.”
Howl!

After letting off a howl, the huge devil race member charged at Xu Fei.

Bang!

Xu Fei let off another punch toward that devil race member. trembled. The devil race member had been stopped! With his mere B-class strength, Xu Fei had blocked that big guy that was comparable to an A-class warrior.

“He is actually this strong?”
“So he already possesses the combat power of an A class?”
“Transcending his level of B class to battle an A class…”
“He can stop that huge freak by himself.”
“Times are indeed changing, eh?”
Everyone lamented endlessly. Presently, Xu Fei was already engaged in a battle with that huge devil race member. “Let me deal with this guy.” Xu Fei was rather confident in himself. Indeed, that gigantic devil race member was very powerful. However, despite how strong it was, there was a limit to it. How was it possible for something perfect to exist? This fellow was someone with an immunity to energy-based and physical abilities and who
possessed a terrifying flame. But then, the stronger its defense was, the weaker its attack had to be. This fact was even more pronounced since this fellow was immune toward both energy and physical attacks. Therefore, the damage this devil race member could deal was certainly very low.

Naturally, being an expert among the devil race members, it still possessed a different ability that was very powerful: its flame capable of crushing anyone at its level. Its dual immunity coupled with its flame granted this devil race member an ability to do as it wished. Unfortunately, this was ineffective against Xu Fei. Flame? It was truly unfortunate that, when it came to Xu Fei, the only thing threatening about this devil race member was its physical strength. Coincidentally, Xu Fei wasn’t a person known for his physical prowess either.

“Come!” Xu Fei howled.

Bang! Bang! They both started engaging in melee battle. Stripped of its three main advantages, how strong could the physical body of this devil race member be? Truth be told, it was rather ordinary. At most, it was equivalent to a peak B class. Therefore, this fellow and Xu Fei were actually evenly matched. Naturally, due to the immunity of this fellow’s, Xu
Fei’s attacks were not able to do much to it. However, what
caused everyone to be speechless was the fact that, similarly, this fellow’s attacks were unable to do anything to Xu Fei either.

Both of them fought each other, neither one of them capable of harming the other. As for the flame that was surging out unceasingly, it was like a decorative firework, incapable of doing anything of substance in this battle.

Bang! Bang!

Explosions echoed without stop. Everyone was dumbstruck as they witnessed this battle. One could not forget that earlier, it had taken seven of them to stop this damnable devil race member from wreaking havoc. The only thing they had been able to do was limit its advance—nothing else. Now though, Xu Fei alone was already sufficient for this task. Bang!

The battle continued. With Xu Fei dealing with this huge devil race member, the Genetic Union regained their superiority on the battlefield. Gradually, the devil race members were pushed back.

Pu! Pu!

Blood splattered around without stop. The number of the devil race members reduced without stop. Alas, right at this moment, a ray of light flickered out from underground. Next, a tiny and sparkling black and furry ball soared up toward the sky, revealing a pair of bean-like eyes that gazed upon the battlefield.

“What is that?”
“Careful.” Everyone heightened their vigilance.

“Deal with it.”
“All right.”
Shua!

A cold radiance flashed past. The cold radiance slashed at the ball yet was unable to deal any damage to it.

“Hey?”
“It looks like an illusion?”
Everyone was rather confused. Illusion? There actually existed illusionary devil race members? Suddenly…
Xiu! Xiu! Xiu!

Countless black balls surged out from underground. It had been a while since the first batch of devil race members had reawakened. Finally, a new batch had appeared. But then, these newly appeared fellows…
“What on earth are this guys?”
Everyone frowned. If these had been regular devil race members, they would have had nothing to fear. But now…
Shua!

Light swirled around. The entire sky was filled with the black balls. There was only one meter of empty space between each ball. This scene appeared both rather bizarre and freakish at the same time. The genetic warriors erected their defensive barrier as they gazed at those balls carefully and prudently.

One second…
Two seconds…
Three seconds…

Bang!

All the black balls exploded. Next, the initially furry balls transformed into something cactus-like with thorns all over their bodies. “What are they doing?”
The onlookers were alarmed. None of them had any idea what in the world these things were, exactly. Regardless, these balls did not look like something simple.

“Spirit, can you deduce what they are?”  Chen Feng asked solemnly.

“Yes.”  Spirit was aware that Chen Feng wanted an answer. “Using two luck value, the following result has been obtained: This is an extremely formidable life-form among the devil race known as ‘charm devils.’ Their body makeup can be classified as a soul, capable of traversing the illusory and real world. Moreover, they are also capable of latching onto anything with life, charming their chosen target to obtain control over the body. Presently, they have just reawakened and are absorbing the energy required for their charm. The positions of their reawakening have all been calculated precisely, with a genetic warrior near each of them. The moment they are done absorbing the required energy, they will be able to latch onto their targets shortly after. The moment the latching succeeds, the genetic warriors of the Genetic Union will fall under the temporary control of these devil race members.” “So that’s the case.”  Chen Feng studied their positions. “It would seem like the reawakening of the devil race members is actually being controlled by someone else.”
Spirit nodded. “Indeed.”  Some things did not require luck values for them to accurately guess.

Hum—
Hum—
The black balls swelled without stop. The situation did not look too encouraging.

Chen Feng narrowed his eyes. These things…

Chapter 475: New Method

High above the sky, amid the boundless darkness, a pair of huge eyes were seemingly shimmering there. Suddenly, the swelling black balls started stirring.

Xiu!

The black balls transformed into numerous black streaks as they charged toward the genetic warriors near them.

“Careful!”
Everyone was horrified. Although they had no idea what these things were, anyone worth their salt knew that nothing good would come from letting those things touch them. As such, they all unleashed their defensive abilities hastily. Alas, their defensive abilities were ineffective, as these black balls were simply illusory objects that would not be stopped by anything in the physical world.

Pa! Pa! The black balls latched onto their bodies.

“Submit…”
“Submit…”
A faintly discernible voice started echoing from the dark sky. Suddenly, each genetic warrior that had been latched onto felt their consciousness growing hazy. It was at this very moment that a dazzling red radiance flashed past.

Xiu! Xiu!

The red radiance flickered about. Astonishingly, the black balls that had latched onto the bodies of those genetic warriors instantly disappeared as the red radiance appeared.

Eh? Instantly, they regained their consciousness. When they raised their heads once again, they were rather confused, as all they could see was a tiny red snake hovering in the air. The snake in question was presently swallowing up those black balls. That’s right. This snake was devouring those black balls.
Those unique black balls that were immune to physical attacks
were being swallowed down just like that. Moreover, after swallowing all those black balls, that red snake seemed to grow longer as well. Was this a misconception?

Xiu! Xiu!

After swallowing several tens of the black balls, that red snake was obviously longer now. Furthermore, it was growing thicker as well, and its movement speed had increased as well.

Xiu! Xiu!

The red flickered around. In a short instant, all the black balls were swallowed cleanly. Once again, this place regained its initial tranquility. ???

The Genetic Union warriors were rather dazed at this new development. What was going on? Not only had they failed to understand what those black balls were, what was the deal with this red snake that had appeared suddenly? With the strength of these genetic warriors, it was not a sure fact that they couldn’t have defeated these black balls. Among the rich experience they had, numerous experiences dealing with these things with unique immunity existed as well. As long as one paid a sufficient price, even if the price was high, it was definitely doable.

It was truly unexpected that before they had even been able to do anything, the battle was already over. As the red flashed about, only several seconds passed before all those black balls were erased from existence. The only thing remaining was the afterimage of that red streak.

Everyone gasped in admiration.

“What in the world is that thing?” “Gluttonous snake?”
“…”

“No idea. Perhaps it’s a trump card of someone from our side.”
“I think so as well.”
Everyone started guessing. Despite their guesses, that red streak had only appeared for a short while before vanishing completely.

“Perhaps  that  person  is  not  willing  to  expose  his  trump card.”
“Yeah.”
Everyone was guessing without stop. Since the threat posed by the devil race was still looming about, they couldn’t spare much of their energy to look for an expert unwilling to reveal himself. Regardless, now that the black balls were no longer here, the Genetic Union warriors could stop wasting time on them. Rather, they could now pay
attention to the next batch of devil race members. In this plan that had been conceived by the devil race after spending so much time, a huge frog and many black balls had appeared. What would appear next?

“Based on the information supplied by Chen Feng, the devil race has been in preparation for this awakening for many years. As such, it definitely won’t be as simple as what we have seen  so  far,”  Han  Yula  stated  coldly.  “This  plan  they  have prepared with utmost care was prepared with the ancient race in mind. Since we resemble the ancient race greatly, we must
—”

Ka! Ka!

Before Han Yula could even finish his words, once again, the earth trembled violently. This was the third batch of the devil race’s attack. The third wave was starting. Bang! Bang!

Numerous explosions erupted on the ground, leaving numerous craters behind. From the darkened soil, a terrifying fog shot out suddenly. Alarming everyone there was the fact that before even dealing any sort of damage to anyone here, the fog had already dissipated amid the air.

“What is that?”
Their expressions were unsightly. The black balls that had appeared previously were still something they had been able to see with their naked eyes. Now, though, this newly appeared fog…
“This looks bad,” someone muttered. This development was much harder to deal with than they had expected. They had initially thought that regardless of how powerful those devil race members were, as long as they were strong enough and were cohesive enough, they would be able to defeat the devil race. However, these two batches of the devil race’s attacks had proven that the devil race’s attacks were not limited to direct battles. “Were these prepared by the devil race with the ancient race in mind as well?” someone asked softly.

Shua! Shua!

The fog dissipated among the air without stop. One genetic warrior tried to stop a particular burst of fog. Alas, the fog still managed to dissipate without any trouble. What exactly was this fog?

“No clue.”
Everyone shook their head. Something like this that they couldn’t see or understand was the scariest thing to face.

Shua! Shua!

Soon, all the fog vanished, with no new fog coming out of the ground. “Howl—”
Once again, some powerful devil race members crawled out from the ground. These newly appeared devil race members had thick scales all over their bodies, showcasing their astonishing defense. They were obviously stronger than the earlier devil race members. Despite this, the genetic warriors were still all focused on the fog that had appeared earlier. What had that been, exactly?

“Oh.”   One  of  them  scratched  his  head.  “Was  that  fog something to create a proper mood to welcome the appearances of these new devil race members?”
Everyone else: “…”
What, do you think this is some stage performance? Creating a proper mood? Do you want a spotlight while you’re at it? Furthermore, that fog was not the dry ice normally used for performances, okay?

Bang! Bang! The devil race members started their attack. As for the Genetic Union members, they could only hold in their doubt and once again face those devil race members. However, their curiosity was answered immediately right after the battle started. The purpose of that damnable fog was instantly revealed.

“This is bad.”
“Insufficient energy!” one of them cried out in alarm.

What?

Everyone else’s expression sunk. What joke was this? In a battle of such a scale, what would be the consequences of insufficient energy? It was something easily guessed.

“How is this possible? We clearly prepared sufficiently…” Everyone was still rather confused. However, after several clashes with the devil race members, their expressions were already changing. That was because the rate of their energy exhaustion had been increased by more than tenfold. Their exhaustion had increased greatly. Let alone their natural recovery rate, even after using their energy reserves, they still had insufficient energy to continue battling.

This rate of exhaustion was simply too astonishing. Tenfold?
What concept was that?

“What’s going…”
Before the question was even completed, they received their answer.

“It’s the fog from earlier.”
Their bodies chilled. “At this speed, we will use up all our energy soon.”
They had never expected that the third batch of the devil race’s attack would be energy exhaustion. The devil race had actually employed such a method to exhaust their energy. This plan of the devil race’s that had been prepared for the ancient race actually worked so magnificently against humanity. The moment their energy was fully exhausted…
“What are you guys afraid of?” Han Yula stated with a cold expression. “When your energy is about to be exhausted, leave here and recover your energy. As long as you guys recover yourselves quickly using the energy stones, everything will be fine.”
Their expressions were unsightly. “But this will cause our combat power to be reduced by 50%!”  If they employed this idea, it would be equivalent to half of them being reduced to noncombatants. There would always be half of them recovering energy outside at all times, causing the combat power of Genetic Union to drop drastically. What would happen if their combat power dropped drastically when facing enemies such as these devil race members? They would suffer disastrous losses! “Don’t worry,” Han Yula stated with a cold expression. “Do what you guys must do. I will handle the rest.”
Shua!

After saying this, he tightened his grasp on the weapon in his hands. If possible, he truly hoped that he could survive this as well.

Chapter 476: The Celebration of a Certain Someone

At Star City, Chen Feng was still observing the entire battlefield. He was aware that he couldn’t participate personally in this battle, but he did not wish to do nothing at all as well. Ultimately, he still wished to use his very own method to change whatever he could change. From the glimpse of the future he had once caught, all of Star City was supposed to be destroyed with countless casualties.

And now, at the very least, they had prepared themselves to face this war. The devil race was extremely powerful, and their numbers were numerous. As such, this war would not be one that could be ended by a single decisive battle. Therefore, the assistance of a particular person was required to ensure that the Genetic Union warriors could maintain their peak condition at all times in this war that Chen Feng had foreseen to be a prolonged war.

Who would that person be, then? Xie Zhongtong? Obviously not. If that fellow was the one to appear here, she would most probably cause a drop in the overall combat power of the Genetic Union warriors present instead. What Chen Feng wanted was… “It’s  about  time  for  you  to  arrive,  right?”   Chen  Feng muttered.

Shua!

Light swirled around. In the world that was presently still enveloped by darkness, every single speck of radiance appeared so very dazzling. Presently, a huge group of the Genetic Union warriors was on the verge of energy exhaustion, and they were about to retreat. Astonishingly, when this happened, those newly reawakened devil race members that had yet to fully regain their thoughts actually moved on instinct alone to stop the retreat of the Genetic Union members.

These devil race members still lacked independent thought. Before their thoughts were fully recovered, they could only act on instinct. To be accurate, they would act in accordance with the “script”  that had been decided for them before they had gone into hibernation back then. The massive sacrifice expended for this plan of the devil race’s had caused the strength of these devil race members chosen for hibernation to be much stronger after reawakening than what one would expect. Howl!

The howling devil race members started chasing after the retreating genetic warriors. Not willing to let go of such a good opportunity, these devil race members started chasing after the genetic warriors that were suffering from energy exhaustion. Because of this, the Genetic Union’s plan to retreat was forcefully halted. If this continued, they would most probably die from exhaustion alone.

Han Yula’s eyes gleamed coldly. “We can’t hold on anymore?”
Faint radiance was converging on his hands as he was about to make his move. Right at this instant, a bizarre-looking blue streak flashed past, and a slight vibration resounded.

Hum—
The air trembled as the blue undulation spread out. At that, the genetic warriors who had already been exhausted of their energy recovered a huge amount of energy instantly. “Yi?”
“This is…”
“My energy has recovered!”
They were all overjoyed. However, not all shared this feeling of joy, as some of them had recognized this ability. “This is Energy Supply, an F-class ability.”

Effect: The energy ball will flicker once per minute and supply 20% of the energy the user possesses to the target. In total, the ball is able to flicker five times.

Cooldown: 20 hours

“The ability with a cooldown of 20 hours?” Instantly, they were all rudely awakened from their short- lived happiness. Now that their energy exhaustion was tenfold higher than usual, let alone 20 hours, even if the cooldown was
20 minutes, they would still suffer energy exhaustion. This mini blue ball could only save them temporarily.

Hum—
Hum—
The mini blue ball was still pulsing right where it had stopped moving.

One time.

Two times.

Three times. …

After five pulses, everyone had already recovered all their energy. Despite this, none of them were feeling happy, as this was exactly as they had guessed. It was indeed that ability. If so, they had to think of what to do next. For this mere F-class ability to be able to recover the energy of everyone here once, it was already an extremely commendable feat. And now, they should decide on their next course of action.

“Just put everything on the line and fight it out.”
“No, that’s not the proper cause of action. We should instead…”
They started discussing. Suddenly…
Hum— A familiar vibration was felt, distracting them all from their discussion.

Eh?

That blue ball was still pulsing? As they were still in the midst of their stupefaction, with a faint buzz, the blue ball started vibrating as it unleashed yet another blue wave that undulated outward, a wave filled with energy.

There’s more?

Their eyes all widened in shock. This ability did not seem to be the one they remembered.

Bang!

Once again, the devil race’s attacks were blocked. After recovering their energy, the genetic warriors had no fear toward these devil race members, and once again, they clashed in melee. At the same time, somewhere in the distance, blue radiance could be seen flickering amid the darkness. The figure of a youth stepped out of the darkness. The blue ball was being controlled by him, and with every step he took, the blue ball pulsed.

Hum—
Once again, a faint undulation spread out.

“Dear everyone, let me take care of the energy-supply issue,” he stated calmly. Despite his help, the Han Yula opposite him merely regarded him coldly. After all, this Star City battle was something only a select few people were aware of. Therefore, Han Yula had to verify the identity of this person. If it turned out that this guy was a devil race member in disguise…
“State your identity,” Han Yula stated with a calm gaze.

“Oh, fine.” That person shrugged and continued, “I am Kong Bai. Chen Feng is the one who told me to come.” Chen Feng…
Han Yula put his weapon away. As he gave it some thought, he found this reasonable. Apart from the Genetic Union, the only person who could be telling others about this was Chen Feng.

Hum—
The blue radiance flickered without stop.

“This young brother here, how long can you keep this supply up?” the others asked excitedly.

Kong Bai beamed. “Unlimited.”
“Nice!”
“Hahaha, I like it!” “Those damnable devil race members were actually thinking of chasing after me earlier. Well then, it’s this father’s turn to deliver some pain now.”
Some of the genetic warriors with comparatively more violent temperaments stopped hiding their real strength.

Bang! Bang!

The battle intensified.

With an unlimited energy supply and no need to limit their energy consumption, the combat power of these genetic warriors increased three times. And right at this moment…
Bang!

A devil race member burst out of the ground before charging directly at Kong Bai. “Careful!”
The expressions of everyone present sank. As far as they were concerned, Kong Bai was their bringer of luck. As such, they could not allow anything to happen to him. Toward this, Kong Bai merely smiled coldly.

Shua!

In his hand, a mirror flickered into existence. Instantly, a terrifying radiance bloomed from the mirror and blasted that A-class devil race member away.

The rest were shocked as they saw this. “Holy sh*t, he’s this fierce?”
That was a devil race member with the combat power of an A class. Granted, for them, that was a rather easy opponent. But then, Kong Bai was a mere B-class warrior, and he was a person capable of supplying unlimited energy to boot. It was rather unexpected that he was also someone with such formidable combat power. His only flaw was his looks, as he truly wasn’t a good-looking person.

“Devil race? You guys are nothing much after all.” Kong Bai flicked his hair confidently as he finished his words.

Bang!

Next, he took the initiative to join the battlefield. The power erupting from him was proven to not be lacking even when compared to the other A-class genetic warriors. This feat of his had shocked everyone present.

“The  future  belongs  to  the  young,  after  all…”   the  rest lamented endlessly. At this point, they knew that as long as Kong Bai survived this battle, he would most certainly become a person known throughout the lands. Alas, it was truly unfortunate that his looks were somewhat lacking.

“Come!” With a fierce expression on his face, he charged at the devil race members. For others, this might have been a place filled with danger. However, for Kong Bai, this was precisely the kind of place he could showcase what he did best. That was because these devil race members were all actually uglier than him!

“Hahaha! You folks who are uglier than me, die! Oh, another guy who’s uglier than me? Hahaha! Another!”
Bang! Bang! Bang!

Kong Bai’s deranged laughter, accompanied by the sounds of the energy blasts erupting from the demonic mirror, resounded throughout the battlefield. Despite the fact that Kong Bai couldn’t actually insta-kill these devil race members, his mere appearance had helped turn this entire battle around.

Devil race… how many trump cards do you guys still have?

Chapter 477: Finally, He Saw Other Colors

“Howl—”
A sudden howl surged through the clouds. Seemingly noticing that things were getting worse for their side, a certain devil race member that had been staying hidden all this while finally made a move. However, after the single howl, the voice of that devil race member immediately changed.

“Ah—”
The howl transformed into a mournful scream, instantly eliminating the imposingness that devil race member had established with its earlier howl.

?

What happened? Everyone focused on the sky. Han Yula smiled. “My old friend, are you finally making your move?”
Indeed, the devil race had had trump cards hidden all this while. However, it was the same for the Genetic Union. This might not have been the case if they had not been aware of this battle in advance. However, with the intelligence Chen Feng had provided, how could they have not made any preparations?

“Ignore  them,”   Han  Yula  stated  with  a  sonorous  voice. “Focus on our tasks.”
“All right,” the rest replied. Their mission was to eliminate these damnable devil race members.

Shua! Shua!

The rain was still falling upon them. As for the soil beneath their feet, it had long turned pitch black. Wave after wave of devil race members shot out of the ground before being killed by the genetic warriors. The devil race was seemingly incapable of presenting any threat to the genetic warriors.

Pu! Pu!

Blood splattered everywhere, and slowly, the ground was painted purple. This was a color resulting from the combination of black and red, and it was a color that caused fear to rise in one’s heart. All of a sudden, the devil race stopped appearing from the ground. The battlefield stayed silent for quite a while, and it continued long enough for them to actually believe that the devil race had given up, but suddenly, the ground started shaking again.

Kong Bai sighed. “Why do they shake first before each of their appearances?”
“Foreplay, I suppose.” Xu Fei curled his lips. “I suppose they think that by shaking, they can get through easier?”
Kong Bai chortled. “Hehe.”  He exchanged glances with Xu Fei, and instantly, they felt like they were the same type of person.

Hum—
A faint radiance flickered into existence. Just as everyone was preparing for the next batch, the newly appeared radiance finished converging, forming a figure. As the rest saw this, they blanked. Unexpectedly, a young lady was the one that had appeared this time. She gazed at the genetic warriors around her before flashing a smile at them, a seductive and bewitching smile.

Bang!

They all felt their consciousnesses shuddering before they entered a brand-new world. Here in this world, the sun shone brightly and a comfortable spring-like breeze was brushing past them. Seated in front of each of them was a person they each loved. At this moment, the battlefield, the war, everything had seemingly vanished. What was I doing earlier? Oh… I was taking a rest. We obtained victory in the war and are now enjoying the fruits of our victory.

Such thoughts surfaced in their brains, and with the people they loved by their sides, everything seemed so fine, tempting all of them to be bewitched by everything they were experiencing presently.

“Slumber on, my dearest…”
The gentle voices of their loved ones were seemingly reverberating everywhere as one genetic warrior after another slumped down onto the ground. This newly appeared young lady was Mei Ling, the holy lady of the bewitching clan of the devil race. Different from other devil race members, she was a devil race member who had been able to regain all her memories and thoughts immediately upon her reawakening. As such, she was clear on what it was that she was best at.

Regardless of gender or age, so long as one possessed any sort of desire in one’s heart, that person would not be able to avoid this attack of hers. This applied to even those who loved nobody but themselves. Despite this, one particular person suddenly opened his eyes at this moment, and without any mercy, a sharp blade was stabbed at Mei Ling’s heart by that person. At this, she widened her eyes abruptly.

Mei Ling stared at the person in front of her. “You.”
“Yes, me,” Han Yula replied solemnly.

Mei Ling could not believe this. “How are you immune to my illusion?”
“Because I am a person without a heart,” Han Yula replied.

Since he was a person with no heart, naturally, there was nothing that his heart desired. The only exception was that particular child… that child who, despite her willful actions, he could not avoid loving. Mei Ling was able to guess something from his expression. “You are lying. You have someone you love. You are an ancient race member, and you are someone who can feel desire. You might not have a heart physically, but this does not apply to your consciousness. Slumber on…” Mei Ling started muttering gently. She was able to see that Han Yula was still someone who had a person he loved dearly. “Slumber…”
Her gentle voice was seemingly capable of bringing anyone to an extremely cozy land of dreams.

Alas.

Pop—
Han Yula pulled out the blade before stabbing it in again and then sliding it in and out two more times. At this, an expression of pain appeared on the young lady’s face.

“You…” She glared at Han Yula hatefully. “How is it possible for this to be ineffective against you?” Han Yula was still as cold as usual. “That’s because this is not what she is like. Regardless of how much she loved me and how much I loved her, I am aware that she is not able to restrain her natural instincts. Therefore, in the dream, I loved her, yet I am also aware that the her in the dream is not the real her.”
“Hehe.”
A self-mocking expression appeared on Mei Ling’s face. “How unique is that lady, exactly? Even after using my ability to construct her based on your spiritual energy, you still have not been fooled…”
“She is unique and unmatched.” As he said these words, both joy and pain flickered in Han Yula’s eyes. He would forever unable to forget that fateful day. That was the day where his emotions, his desire toward love, and everything he had known had been destroyed. Was it truly a good thing for him to have met that lady? He had no answer to this question. He had once tasted joy, yet he had once suffered as well. He was a person whose world consisted of only black and white. However, that lady’s appearance had allowed him to bear witness to other, different colors. “What was her name?” Mei Ling asked.

“Xie Zhongtong,” Han Yula stated faintly.

Mei Ling nodded her head. “Good name. This lady must be a very unique person.”
“Indeed…”
Han Yula furrowed his brows, seemingly happy and in pain at  the  same  time.  “She  is  very  unique  and  a  very  sincere person. Alas, her worldview is somewhat different than mine…”
Mei Ling’s voice became exceptionally gentle as she asked, “Oh? How so?”
Han Yula frowned, “The number of people she loves is rather large…” Mei Ling gently replied, “Is that so? Then, do you feel that she is wrong?”
“I don’t know.” Han Yula blanked as he talked on. “I once believed that she had betrayed me. However, from the emotions expressed through her eyes, I found out that for her, this is something extremely normal. At that moment, I became lost.”
Mei Ling’s voice was incredibly bewitching as she spoke. “You will find it in you to forgive her. She will also forgive you. You both truly love each other. Just look at how she accepted you despite your lack of a heart. If so, why can’t you accept the fact that she is generous in sharing her love with others, not just you?”
“You’re right.”  After this series of questions, Han Yula had seemingly lost his sense of awareness.

“If so… go and enjoy it, then. Enjoy the world that belongs to the both of you… Ah, no. To be more accurate, enjoy the world that belongs to all of you.” Mei Ling finished her words softly. Alas, right at this moment, a feeling of pain stabbed at her head as a youth slammed a club down on her head.

Clang!

She was momentarily dazed by this blow to her head.

She turned around and saw that it was precisely that person called Kong Bai that had hit her head with a club. “It’s you.” She had clearly given him the illusion of a perfect life based on his memories. If so, how had he left the illusion?

Kong Bai sneered. “You wish to scam me with a mere illusion?”
Mei Ling focused her gaze on Kong Bai. “How did you find out that it was fake?”
Kong Bai sneered. “I have been single all these years. No female has ever told me that she loves me, not a single one. And suddenly, that perfect goddess in the dream actually confessed her love toward me? How ridiculous. Even if I think with my feet, I can figure out that there is a trick somewhere.”
Mei Ling: “…”
She felt like this species before her was somewhat different from the ancient race she had once met. Perhaps, this was a newly appeared species that had mutated from the ancient race?

Her eyes gleamed coldly. “If so, I shall kill you.” The only thing that mattered was getting the strongest Han Yula under control. This Kong Bai before her seemed rather weak. As long as he was killed…
Just as she was contemplating what to do, suddenly, the energy weapons on the buildings nearby suddenly activated. At the lowest intensity possible, the weapons started blasting the bodies of all the genetic warriors present. Instantly, they were all roused from their dreams. ??? Damn it! Mei Ling’s expression changed abruptly. Someone else had remained awake as well? No, that wasn’t possible. All the warriors here…
She glanced around and, with astonishment, found that the person who had awakened everyone with the energy weapons was actually not a genetic warrior. Rather, it was a technician responsible for maintaining the weapons. A technician in their 40s.

Mei Ling was alarmed. “How is it possible you to leave the illusion as well?” She could overlook the fact that these genetic warriors could escape the illusion, but now, it seemed like even a normal technician could see through her illusion? Had she been in hibernation for too long, so long that she did not notice that the people of this new era were no longer controllable using illusions?

With sorrow, that person replied, “Why, you ask? Well, how is it possible for a nerd programmer like me to actually have a girlfriend?”
Chapter 478: Awaken It would seem like everyone was now capable of reawakening from her illusion. Han Yula, Kong Bai, even that technician. Their awakening caused Mei Ling’s ability to look like a joke. This ability that had once dominated the world during the era of the ancient race was no longer of any use in this new era.
The dreams Mei Ling induced in one’s brain were too beautiful, so beautiful that they became unreal.

Granted, the ability’s immersion was still able to cause a lot of people to believe in the dream. However, for those who had never believed that such a thing could actually happen to them, this ability was ineffective. An example was Han Yula, he who could not believe that Xie Zhongtong would actually be willing to live with him alone. A second example was Kong Bai, who could not believe that someone would actually confess her love toward him. And a third example was the technician, who refused to believe that a nerd programmer like him could actually obtain a girlfriend.

“???”
Mei Ling was somewhat dumbstruck. It was truly beyond her expectations that, after so many years of hibernation, she would no longer be able to keep up with the new era, akin to someone who was still using outdated memes on the internet after everyone had moved on to new memes.
Were these people truly the ancient race? Their thought process was truly too complicated. One ought to know that during their era back then, any sort of romance had absolutely been an affair between only two people. Moreover, nobody so ugly that they could never find love like Kong Bai had existed back then, and a technician back then had been a person worthy of respect rather than someone incapable of obtaining a girlfriend.

Mei Ling blanked. What era had she awakened in? She had a feeling that the devil race had chosen the wrong era to reawaken.

Pu!

The newly reawakened Han Yula stabbed at Mei Ling once again. He truly couldn’t tolerate this person who dared to toy with his love toward Xie Zhongtong. Accompanied by her confusion, Mei Ling’s life perished. Even in death, she was still unable to understand the kind of era the devil race had reappeared in.

Pu!

Her corpse collapsed onto the ground. Han Yula pulled his hand back coldly. The rain poured down, highlighting his cold and imposing appearance. At this time, those of the Genetic Union all regained their consciousness as well, each of them with an ashamed expression on their face. Their lives had nearly been harvested by the enemy earlier. They had truly been too careless.

“Be on high alert,” Han Yula stated coldly.

They were extremely ashamed. “Yes.”
Shua! Shua! The rain was still as heavy as ever. The reawakening of the devil race members might have seemed endless, but after the appearance of that Mei Ling earlier, they knew that the number of devil race members still contained in the soil beneath them was now rather low in amount. The normal soldiers of the devil race here were probably all dead already. Those who would appear next would be those at the level of Mei Ling. Perhaps the next batch of reawakened would be the final goal of the devil race this time.

Everyone maintained their vigilance. As for Han Yula, his expression became colder. At this time, the shameless Xu Fei walked over and cautiously asked, “Erm, the Xie Zhongtong you mentioned earlier…”
“You  have  seen  her  before?”  Han  Yula  asked  as  his  eyes gleamed with killing intent.

Shua!

The weapon in his hand was aimed straight at Xu Fei. Xu Fei waved his hands hastily. “No! I have only heard of her from Chen Feng.”
Han Yula’s gaze sunk. “Oh? She has mentioned Chen Feng before as well.”
Xu Fei laughed. “Mhm, they are friends. At that time, Chen Feng even told me that he would introduce me to Xie Zhongtong.”
Bang!

Xu Fei was flung into a particular building, collapsing the entire building. Han Yula glared at him coldly. “You dare think of taking advantage of her?”
“No,  definitely  not!”  Xu  Fei  scrambled  up  and  waved  his hands nonstop. “Bro, I’m only trying to get close to you. Let me tell you, you might see me as a young person, but in fact, I am an expert playboy. As my family is rather well off, back then, the number of girls I saw probably numbered 800, if not 1,000. Perhaps I might be of help to you in this.” Shua!

Han Yula continued gazing at Xu Fei coldly. However, the pressure he was subjecting Xu Fei to was now gone. Xu Fei wiped his sweat before asking, “How did the two of you meet?”
Xu Fei was in fact trying his utmost to get close to this expert of the Genetic Union by making use of this free time while no new devil race members were appearing. After all, this guy was the boss of the boss of the boss of the boss of his boss.

Han Yula was a person who preferred to keep his sentences short. “A while ago, when I was hunting for Mysterious Organization members, I discovered her being… Next, I killed all those fellows from the Mysterious Organization. Unexpectedly, she… Only toward the end did I find out the truth.”
Despite the short sentences, Xu Fei was able to guess clearly what  happened.  “I  see.”  Due  to  Chen  Feng,  the  Mysterious Organization was in deep trouble, to the point that their own members were abandoning them. Next, Xie Zhongtong had probably escaped as well, resulting in what had happened next. Perhaps after “doing” it with her, this Lord Han wanted to take responsibility for what he had done. Unfortunately, she wasn’t the least bothered with him and continued on with her “happy days.”  Thereupon, this Lord Han had been stuck deeper and deeper in this pit of love and hatred. He couldn’t bear doing anything toward the woman he loved and had ultimately
remained stuck in this huge dilemma.

Xu Fei was very sure that if this story of Han Yula’s was written as a novel, it would most definitely sell well. A two- person love story featuring Han Yula, the domineering and cold male lead, and the innocent and vivacious Xie Zhongtong, who had a rather unique worldview, as the female lead. What a perfect plot.

Xu Fei’s confidence surged. “Don’t worry. I will help you reeducate her and adjust her worldview.”
Han Yula looked at Xu Fei doubtfully. “For real?”
“Of course,” Xu Fei bragged without any inhibition. “After all this is over, I will deal with her for you.” “All right.” When Han Yula looked at Xu Fei once again, his gaze was much friendlier. If it was truly possible to readjust Xie Zhongtong’s worldview, Han Yula might truly be able to stay together with her. Hopefully everything would proceed smoothly. Naturally, at present, they had to focus on surviving this war instead.

Shua!

Rain poured down, yet nothing happened. This continued for two whole minutes. Suddenly, numerous miniature life-forms started appearing. From the dark clouds, they appeared and streaked toward the ground, knocking into the ground.

Everyone braced themselves. “Careful!”
Pu! Pu!

The Genetic Union warriors slashed down, killing those life- forms. Surprising them, from the start till the end, these life- forms ignored the entirety of the Genetic Union’s attacks. Just like that, they had appeared suddenly only to be killed suddenly. Their corpses sprawled everywhere, leaving behind numerous puddles of purple blood.

Hum—
The purple blood blended with the soil.

Ka! Ka!

Instantly, the ground cracked. That huge palm that had been as still as a statue for so long trembled suddenly before breaking free of its frozen state and once again started moving.

Bang! Bang!

With a terrifying sound, a dense purple flame erupted out of the huge palm, swallowing everything it touched.

Shua! Shua! 
When the bizarre raindrops landed on the flame, it burned even more intensely. Amid the endless darkness, the huge flaming palm seemingly tinted the entire sky red.

All their hearts trembled. “It’s coming out…”
Clang!

The ground burst upward, and underneath the palm, the silhouette of the devil race member enlarged. By the time its entire body appeared, everyone there inhaled a mouthful of cold air at the sight. This devil race member was as large as a building.

Howl!

With a howl, its entire body ignited. 
Above its hand, a clump of flame appeared before taking the shape of a huge flaming sword. The flaming sword flickered with a dazzling radiance, causing the hearts of all onlookers to fluster.

“What monster is this?”
Everyone there was shocked. Was this the final boss the devil race was trying to reawaken? This guy here…

Chapter 478: Awaken

It would seem like everyone was now capable of reawakening from her illusion. Han Yula, Kong Bai, even that technician. Their awakening caused Mei Ling’s ability to look like a joke. This ability that had once dominated the world during the era of the ancient race was no longer of any use in this new era. The dreams Mei Ling induced in one’s brain were too beautiful, so beautiful that they became unreal.

Granted, the ability’s immersion was still able to cause a lot of people to believe in the dream. However, for those who had never believed that such a thing could actually happen to them, this ability was ineffective. An example was Han Yula, he who could not believe that Xie Zhongtong would actually be willing to live with him alone. A second example was Kong Bai, who could not believe that someone would actually confess her love toward him. And a third example was the technician, who refused to believe that a nerd programmer like him could actually obtain a girlfriend.

“???” Mei Ling was somewhat dumbstruck. It was truly beyond her expectations that, after so many years of hibernation, she would no longer be able to keep up with the new era, akin to someone who was still using outdated memes on the internet after everyone had moved on to new memes.

Were these people truly the ancient race? Their thought process was truly too complicated. One ought to know that during their era back then, any sort of romance had absolutely been an affair between only two people. Moreover, nobody so ugly that they could never find love like Kong Bai had existed back then, and a technician back then had been a person worthy of respect rather than someone incapable of obtaining a girlfriend.

Mei Ling blanked. What era had she awakened in? She had a feeling that the devil race had chosen the wrong era to reawaken.

Pu!

The newly reawakened Han Yula stabbed at Mei Ling once again. He truly couldn’t tolerate this person who dared to toy with his love toward Xie Zhongtong. Accompanied by her confusion, Mei Ling’s life perished. Even in death, she was still unable to understand the kind of era the devil race had reappeared in.

Pu!

Her corpse collapsed onto the ground. Han Yula pulled his hand back coldly. The rain poured down, highlighting his cold and imposing appearance. At this time, those of the Genetic Union all regained their consciousness as well, each of them with an ashamed expression on their face. Their lives had nearly been harvested by the enemy earlier. They had truly been too careless.

“Be on high alert,” Han Yula stated coldly.

They were extremely ashamed. “Yes.” The rain was still as heavy as ever. The reawakening of the devil race members might have seemed endless, but after the appearance of that Mei Ling earlier, they knew that the number of devil race members still contained in the soil beneath them was now rather low in amount. The normal soldiers of the devil race here were probably all dead already. Those who would appear next would be those at the level of Mei Ling. Perhaps the next batch of reawakened would be the final goal of the devil race this time.

Everyone maintained their vigilance. As for Han Yula, his expression became colder. At this time, the shameless Xu Fei walked over and cautiously asked, “Erm, the Xie Zhongtong you mentioned earlier…”
“You  have  seen  her  before?”  Han  Yula  asked  as  his  eyes gleamed with killing intent.

Shua! Xu Fei waved his hands hastily. “No! I have only heard of her from Chen Feng.”
Han Yula’s gaze sunk. “Oh? She has mentioned Chen Feng before as well.”
Xu Fei laughed. “Mhm, they are friends. At that time, Chen Feng even told me that he would introduce me to Xie Zhongtong.”
Bang!

Xu Fei was flung into a particular building, collapsing the entire building. Han Yula glared at him coldly. “You dare think of taking advantage of her?”
“No,  definitely  not!”  Xu  Fei  scrambled  up  and  waved  his hands nonstop. “Bro, I’m only trying to get close to you. Let me tell you, you might see me as a young person, but in fact, I am an expert playboy. As my family is rather well off, back then, the number of girls I saw probably numbered 800, if not 1,000. Perhaps I might be of help to you in this.” Shua!

Han Yula continued gazing at Xu Fei coldly. However, the pressure he was subjecting Xu Fei to was now gone. Xu Fei wiped his sweat before asking, “How did the two of you meet?”
Xu Fei was in fact trying his utmost to get close to this expert of the Genetic Union by making use of this free time while no new devil race members were appearing. After all, this guy was the boss of the boss of the boss of the boss of his boss.

Han Yula was a person who preferred to keep his sentences short. “A while ago, when I was hunting for Mysterious Organization members, I discovered her being… Next, I killed all those fellows from the Mysterious Organization. Unexpectedly, she… Only toward the end did I find out the truth.”
Despite the short sentences, Xu Fei was able to guess clearly what  happened.  “I  see.”  Due  to  Chen  Feng,  the  Mysterious Organization was in deep trouble, to the point that their own members were abandoning them. Next, Xie Zhongtong had probably escaped as well, resulting in what had happened next. Perhaps after “doing” it with her, this Lord Han wanted to take responsibility for what he had done. Unfortunately, she wasn’t the least bothered with him and continued on with her “happy days.”  Thereupon, this Lord Han had been stuck deeper and deeper in this pit of love and hatred. He couldn’t bear doing anything toward the woman he loved and had ultimately
remained stuck in this huge dilemma.

Xu Fei was very sure that if this story of Han Yula’s was written as a novel, it would most definitely sell well. A two- person love story featuring Han Yula, the domineering and cold male lead, and the innocent and vivacious Xie Zhongtong, who had a rather unique worldview, as the female lead. What a perfect plot.

Xu Fei’s confidence surged. “Don’t worry. I will help you reeducate her and adjust her worldview.”
Han Yula looked at Xu Fei doubtfully. “For real?”
“Of course,” Xu Fei bragged without any inhibition. “After all this is over, I will deal with her for you.” “All right.” When Han Yula looked at Xu Fei once again, his gaze was much friendlier. If it was truly possible to readjust Xie Zhongtong’s worldview, Han Yula might truly be able to stay together with her. Hopefully everything would proceed smoothly. Naturally, at present, they had to focus on surviving this war instead.

Chapter 479: The Terrifying Devil Race

The world was still shrouded in darkness. Amid the endless clouds, a pair of eyes was flickering with a silver radiance. Silently, he regarded Star City, which was enveloped by darkness. He watched on as numerous devil race members reawakened before being killed by the Genetic Union. Nothing seemed to be developing according to the plan.

Humans…
He looked at this new race. Initially, he had believed that during the reawakening, they would have to confront the ancient race. Beyond his expectations, after that war back then, the ancient race had vanished as well. Now, humans were the one who ruled this world.

Shua! Shua!

His eyes flashed. The destruction of each batch of devil race members that appeared was seen clearly by him. He had also borne witness to the strength and methods available to that organization  called  “Genetic  Union.”  Just  like  that,  in  the darkness, he silently observed and analyzed.

Batches of reawakened devil race members kept dying off, yet he wasn’t the least bothered. For him, they were ultimately all cannon fodder.

Hum—
His silvery eyes flashed as he hid himself amid the darkness.

Interesting.

Everything that happened here, he witnessed with his very own eyes. He had been watching on all along, watching as the blood of the devil race dyed the earth red, watching as the black soil turned purple and as that huge monster finally broke free from the ground. An awe-inspiring roar was let loose from the monster’s mouth. The formidable power the monster was emanating caused one’s heart to fluster as they realized that this monster was a peak A class—a peak A class in the truest sense. Comparatively, this was equivalent to a human that had mastered a 6-star secret art, a powerful genetic warrior that no ordinary person could hope to match. This monster here, with its tough skin and huge size… It was likely that its pure physical strength alone was already as strong as a peak A class.

Xu Fei charged forth fiercely. “What is there to fear?”
Pa!

With a single slap, Xu Fei was smashed away and flung out like a shot artillery shell.

Bang! “The strength of this fellow… Damn it, his physical strength alone is already equivalent to an A-class.”  Xu Fei grimaced in pain. “Charge together!” Han Yula bellowed coldly. At that, all the Genetic Union warriors made their move.

Bang! Bang!

The battle began. Several tens of Genetic Union members surrounded the single devil beast, yet they still seemed disadvantaged.

“This beast is too huge!”
“We are at a loss facing it.”
Their expressions were unsightly.

“?” “Its skin is strong enough to resist your attacks?”
Han Yula couldn’t understand the reason they were disadvantaged. He was aware that this beast had powerful physical strength. However, despite how strong the beast was, could it be immune to the attacks of A-class warriors? After all, they had so many A-class warriors here…
One of them smiled bitterly. “It’s not because of that. The problem is that its skin is too thick.”
“Mhm?” With a confused expression, Han Yula tried launching an attack.

Bang!

As his attack landed, an intense vibration sprang up through his hands. “This feeling…”  Han Yula’s expression changed slightly. He had indeed hit the target. His weapon had indeed been stabbed in. However, the moment his weapon had stabbed into the skin, with sorrow, he had found that the thickness of the skin exceeded the length of his entire weapon.

It was too thick! It was no wonder that all the genetic warriors here appeared stupefied.

“We can’t do anything at all.”
“I reckon his skin is at least a meter thick…”
“Too scary.”
“Who’s capable of inserting through it?”
“My attack tore out half a meter worth of skin from this beast, yet this beast did not even feel anything from my attack.” “What if our attacks are focused?”
“That won’t work; it’s healing too fast. Before all the attacks can land, it will have already healed up from the previous attacks. This fellow is simply like a huge meatball.”
They all felt helpless. Nearly all their attacks failed to pierce through the skin of this beast. This final devil race member was truly too formidable, so formidable that it gave one a stifling feeling.

“Why not try stabbing its chrysanthemum?”
“I tried. It failed.”
“How about attacking its vital parts?”
“Only some skin comes off from those attacks…” “Sigh.”
“How good would it be if we had some piercing abilities…”
They all sighed. Piercing abilities had never felt so precious to them. With the appearance of the devil race, with their skin and physical characteristics, piercing abilities would most certainly become extremely popular among humans from now on. Alas, for now, they would still have to rely on what they had.

Everyone looked at Han Yula. “What do we do?”
Bang! Bang!

That devil beast was wrecking destruction in Star City in an absolutely unrestrained manner. None of them were capable of stopping it. Han Yula had also tried unleashing his strongest attack, yet it had been blocked by that devil beast’s huge flaming sword. That taught them that this beast here wasn’t exactly a fool that would stand there and take on all attacks. After all, the devil race was unlike those ordinary beasts. Despite their appearance that resembled mutated beasts, the devil race was a race with wisdom. A thick and sonorous voice traveled to their ears. They could seemingly hear that beast jeering at them.

Howl! Howl!

With two loud howls, the ground started trembling as numerous gigantic beasts that looked the same as that huge beast started appearing from the ground. Two, three, four, and more.

Soon, nine extra such beasts had appeared.

“Nine more.”
They paled as they saw this. Each of these beasts was as powerful as a peak A-class warrior. Nearly surpassing A class, to be precise. If there was only one here, they could still have tried working together, but now there were 10 of them…
“Howl!”
As the 10 beasts howled together, the killing intent they emanated was sufficient to paralyze someone.

Surprisingly, Han Yula became calm after seeing them. “Finally, you guys have shown yourself… Is this your final trump card? Ten devil beasts? If so, it’s our turn, the Genetic Union’s turn, to make a move. Senior, please,”  Han Yula said while facing empty air.

Shua!

Light swirled around. Abruptly, several silhouettes of light appeared midair. An old man appeared out of thin air. Staring attentively at the devil beast, he slowly stretched out his finger. Next, an indescribable pressure converged at the tip of his finger. Slowly, the old man pointed downward.

Pu!

A hole appeared on the forehead of one of the devil beasts. Dead! The rest widened their eyes as they saw this. Dead? Holy shit! This terrifying devil beast was dead just like that? They were aware that the Genetic Union would most certainly have deployed some scary seniors here. Unexpectedly, the expert that had appeared was actually this powerful!

Bang!

The devil beast collapsed onto the ground, akin to a skyscraper collapsing, bringing about a loud bang as it landed. At this time. The old man pointed down several times, and with that, several bloody holes appeared. Accompanied by loud bangs, the 10 terrifying devil beasts collapsed loudly onto the ground just like that. The devil race had been eliminated.

Shua!

Instantly, the entire area lapsed into silence.

“Many thanks, senior,” Han Yula said. At this moment, two other silhouettes that had appeared at the same time as the old man gazed toward the empty air up in the sky.

Xiu!

One of them pointed at the air. Instantly, numerous mournful screams resounded from the sky before several devil race corpses rained down, landing on the ground beneath the sky. As for the other silhouette, he merely gazed up at the sky. He uttered a single calm word. “Please?” Next, light started swirling as a terrifying gust of power surged out.

Shua!

Instantly, the darkness shrouding the sky cleared. The darkness receded rapidly and the black rain within Star City evaporated cleanly. Next, that terrifying gust of power pierced through the cloud, puncturing the thick layer of clouds. Finally, the sky was once again bright.

Chapter 480: Weaker Than Imagined

Star City.

The sudden eruption of gold reverberated through the darkness. Enveloped by gold, the Star City that had been shrouded by darkness underwent rebirth. All the devil race corpses and bloodstains were cleared under the gold radiance. After a long time, when the gold finally dissipated, Star City regained its previous appearance.

The devil race was no more.

The black rain was no more.

Even the soil that had been dyed black had recovered its original color.

We did it? Everyone remained in a long stupor. A second earlier, Star City had still been shrouded by darkness, the devil beasts wreaking havoc and dealing damage in an absolutely unrestrained manner akin to fiends. The next second, Star City had regained its previous appearance. The sun that had been
missing for a long time was shining upon them once again. In the sky, a rainbow had even appeared.

“We won?”
“We resisted the invasion?”
They looked at each other blankly. The silhouettes of the three old men up in the sky swept their gazes past the people there before nodding in a satisfied manner.

A gentle voice could be heard saying, “You guys have been working hard.”
Hearing that, all their hearts shuddered. They might not have been able to recognize the appearance of that old man, but that voice… was precisely the voice they would hear frequently in some of the classes they had been attending. The owner of this voice, the person akin to a living textbook, was precisely the deputy president of the Genetic Union.
“It was only through the perseverance of all of you that we managed to last till the end. Without that, if we had moved prematurely, all this would have been naught.” The deputy president sighed. None of them had dared to underestimate the devil race invasion. Capable of shrouding the entire world in darkness, the prowess of the devil race was apparent. The news regarding the upcoming full-scale invasion by the devil race had indeed alarmed the entire Genetic Union. As such, they had prepared in advance for this, resulting in everything that had happened today.

They had been unaware of the total number of waves the devil race would be sending. As such, the strongest trump cards they had prepared had to wait till the end before making their move. If they had moved earlier and ended up being targeted by the devil race, it was quite probable that they would have been unable to save everyone during the final moment.

Chen Feng… Suddenly, they recalled that child. It was precisely that child called Chen Feng that had been hiding undercover at the Mysterious Organization, obtaining information regarding this secret that would otherwise have remained undiscovered. It was precisely due to him that this invasion of the devil race’s
had failed. That child had contributed greatly in this defense
against the devil race.

“Thank you all. Every single second you guys held on was in itself a contribution to the entire world,” the deputy president stated as he regarded the genetic warriors covered in wounds. Since there were some genetic warriors with formidable healing abilities, there were no actual casualties. However, nearly all of them were injured. This had truly been a rather difficult battle.

They all beamed. “It’s nothing.”
Shua!

The sun shone upon them. In the sky, the darkness that had enveloped the world for quite a while was now receding starting from the region near Star City. Hum—
Presently, the sunshine here at Star City was akin to the only sunshine in existence in this world. So very dazzling.

They were finally able to feel relieved.

“It’s finally over.”
They patted the shoulders of Xu Fei and Kong Bai. “It has been hard on you guys.” The sudden appearance of these two was the reason they had been able to last this long.

“Hehe.”
They exchanged glances and smiled, yet doubt could be seen in their eyes. From how this was progressing, things seemed somewhat different than Chen Feng’s prediction. From what Chen Feng had predicted, the devil race members that would be invading would be extremely terrifying, so terrifying that even peak A-class warriors would be helpless. There would be numerous casualties, and the entirety of Star City would be destroyed. Now, though…
Xu Fei was doubtful. “Is it because of the involvement of the Genetic Union?”
Kong Bai shook his head. “Perhaps.”
Since Kong Bai was a person with the power of transmigration, he was aware of the changes a sequence of events could have on the course of history. Had this ended so easily due to the excessive strength of the Genetic Union? The Genetic Warriors at Star City were immersed in the joy of their victory.

At a certain location, Chen Feng glanced around. When the gold radiance had spread through Star City earlier, that vast power had been so strong that it had caused his heart to flutter. That was most certainly the power of someone surpassing A class, a superexpert in the truest sense. This proved that the boss of Genetic Union was most certainly someone surpassing A class. After the gold radiance had swept past them, the entirety of Star City, black soil included, had been thoroughly cleansed. That caused the devil race to have no way of further concealing themselves. By right, they should have all died as well. However…
Chen Feng glanced at his Luck Aura’s warning signal, which was still flickering red.

“Spirit, does the devil race still exist?” Chen Feng asked in a low voice.

“Yes,” Spirit confirmed.

“Are they remnants that survived this battle?”  Chen Feng guessed.

Spirit shook her head. “No. With luck value, I obtained an estimate of the strength of the devil race. The danger level of the devil race members that invaded this time was extremely high. Regardless of it being before the devil race’s awakening here in this city or after their destruction at the hands of the Genetic Union, their danger level has remained the same.”
Chen Feng’s heart jolted violently. What? Remained the same? What did that signify? This signified that even the death of the devil race members today, including the 10 terrifying peak A-class devil race members earlier, had no effect whatsoever on the total strength of the devil race. In other words, what they had seen today had all merely been cannon fodder.  Suddenly,  Chen  Feng’s  body  chilled.  “Peak  A-class cannon  fodder?”   The  devil  race  invasion  was  much  more powerful than his initial estimation.

“What should we do, then?” Spirit asked. “Shall we use luck value to force them out of hiding?”
Chen Feng shook his head. “No.”
The devil race was too terrifyingly strong. If he got himself involved now, the consumption of his luck value would be too high. The little amount of luck value he had in him had to be saved for something more important. As for those from the Genetic Union… Chen Feng gazed at them. If they were unable to even detect the devil race members, it was pointless to even try saving Star City. Everyone should just return from where they had come from. At this time, amid the victorious cheers…
“Do  not  relax.”   Han  Yula’s  cold  gaze  swept  past  them. “Maintain your vigilance as necessary. The rest of you, start cleaning up the battlefield.”
The deputy president smiled. “Don’t worry. The darkness has already been expelled. The devil race can no longer show themselves here…” Before he could even finish his words, his gaze that was focused on space paused suddenly. After the momentary pause, a dazzling gold radiance shone out of his eyes.

Bang!

A golden ray surged out, revealing two dark silhouettes.

The deputy president sneered. “Hmph. Surprisingly, there are still two remnants here.” A  melodious  voice  resounded.  “We  have  been  discovered, eh?”  The  hovering  figure  was  a  white  feline-like  life-form. Despite the fact that it was standing on two feet, despite the fact that it was wearing clothes, one could still clearly see that this was a cat, a shiny white cat as beautiful as a precious stone.

“Clown.” The deputy president seemed resentful of its sudden appearance. Just as he had bragged that the darkness had already been expelled, these two devil race folks had appeared? As he thought of this, he pointed down with a single finger. “Die!”
This single faint word was seemingly filled with a might capable of shattering space.

Xiu!

Instantly, a terrifying power descended upon the forehead of that devil race member. Alas, something astonishing happened next.

Hum— An ancient imprint flickered into existence on that devil race member’s forehead, blocking the deputy president’s attack.

“Aiya.” The white cat licked its sharp claws playfully. “You are even weaker than I imagined.”
Behind the white cat was a different devil race member that had remained silent. This was a species never seen before. Its body shimmered before abruptly multiplying itself numerous times. Instantly, tens of thousands of devil race members that looked exactly the same as it appeared. Each of them was at the power level of an A class.
