550 Sovereign Moyou and Xu Jingming
Five days later.
Sixteen Hellion Origin lifeforms stood in the control center of a black, flat-shaped spaceship. Leading them was Sovereign Moyou with jade-green eyes. He was tall and thin, and he wore a dark-red cloak as he looked ahead with interest.
“Overlord Youfu, follow me. The other Overlords are free to act,” Sovereign Moyou said leisurely.
“Yes, Sovereign Moyou.” The 15 Hellion Overlords replied respectfully. They felt extremely honored that the great Sovereign Moyou was personally leading them!
The spaceship finally arrived at its destination, the Seal Star Alliance.
Sixteen figures turned ethereal and flew out of the spaceship. They were divided into eight teams. Some acted alone, while others moved out in pairs or trios, taking eight smaller spacejets.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The eight spacejets carried out warp jumps one after another and headed for their respective targets.
As for the female Hellion Overlord, Overlord Youfu, she followed Sovereign Moyou to an unfamiliar cosmos and looked at the tiny habitable planet.
“Youfu,” Sovereign Moyou said.
“Sovereign.” The slender Overlord Youfu bowed respectfully.
“When you take action later, I’ll hide within spacetime… lest I scare away our lovely prey,” Sovereign Moyou said with a smile.
Overlord Youfu was surprised.
Lovely prey? Having followed Sovereign Moyou for a long time, Overlord Youfu knew his character very well—Sovereign Moyou wouldn’t be too interested in ordinary Lv. 10 Origin lifeforms.
“You have a prey in mind?” Youfu asked.
“Yeah.” Sovereign Moyou nodded slightly. “It’s very special prey. You’ll know when you encounter it.”
After a long time.
“It’s almost time. Prepare to descend on that habitable planet,” Sovereign Moyou said.
“Yes, Sovereign,” Overlord Youfu replied.
The two of them were originally in a spacejet, but Sovereign Moyou and the spacejet suddenly disappeared.
An invisible force wrapped around Overlord Youfu as she descended upon the habitable planet in the distance.
This habitable planet was also one of the busier planets in the entire Star Alliance. It had a population of more than ten billion, and many spaceships were parked at the planet’s starport. But the moment Overlord Youfu appeared on the habitable planet—
An invisible force instantly enveloped the habitable planet and the surrounding starport. All life, along with their consciousness, were instantly devoured.
Compared to Hellion consciousness, human consciousness is much more colorful and exciting. Sovereign Moyou’s voice echoed in Overlord Youfu’s mind. It takes more than ten times the number of Hellions to match the devouring of humans.
Overlord Youfu couldn’t understand.
Devouring consciousness? He could just kill all life on an habitable planet with a flick of his finger, yet he even wanted to devour their consciousness?
Of course, Overlord Youfu only ruminated inwardly and didn’t dare say it out loud.
“The power of the mind is filled with infinite possibilities. Youfu, if you want to become a Sovereign, you have to pay attention to mental strength.” Sovereign Moyou’s voice echoed in her mind. Perhaps it was because of the Nightmare World’s influence, but other than Sovereigns who also grasped high-dimensional powers, he was only friendly to female Overlords among the weaker Hellion Overlords.
“I have to devour the consciousness of humans to become a Sovereign?” Youfu replied with a thought.
“Do you know how?” Sovereign Moyou asked.
Overlord Youfu felt helpless. She was very good at slaughtering and exterminating, but devouring consciousness? She didn’t understand.
“Strengthen yourself first. If you’re too weak, you’ll only get lost from devouring consciousness. Alright, hurry up and plunder,” Sovereign Moyou urged.
“Yes, Sovereign,” Overlord Youfu replied with a thought and immediately took action. She acted alone and began plundering frantically.
As for Sovereign Moyou, he remained fused with the universe in his Nightmare World form.
On the surface, only Overlord Youfu was plundering. Although Sovereign Moyou didn’t care about these spoils of war, he had to put on an act. Otherwise, how could he lure his ‘prey?’
“Humans will probably value a planet that has a population of more than ten billion. They might send that mysterious guardian over.” Sovereign Moyou waited patiently.
On Planet Black Iron, in the manor.
Xu Jingming, Senior Brother Jane, and Senior Brother Yijiu focused on their own matters.
A mission. Xu Jingming was originally focused on studying the Möbius model, but he set off immediately when the mission arrived.
“Junior Brother Wu Ming is out on a mission again just after five days?” Reeking of alcohol, Yijiu exclaimed in surprise, “With such a high frequency, how many Hellion Origin lifeforms does he kill in a year? How much credit has he accumulated?”
Senior Brother Jane said, “Junior Brother Wu Ming used to be at the center and back of the Heavenly Python Cosmic Sector, and his defense coverage was much smaller! Now that he has broken through, his defense coverage has just been increased to one-third of the cosmic sector.”
“In the past, even if there were only one-tenth of the missions, the number of Hellions he killed is still significant.” Yijiu sighed.
“He also indirectly saves more habitable planets,” Senior Brother Jane said.
The first mission Xu Jingming received sent him to a destination with three Hellion Origin lifeforms.
Priority of those eradicated planets were determined by many factors—the importance of the planet, the population, and the number of Hellions detected! Of course, the detection ability of some habitable planets was weaker, and they failed to detect the exact number of Hellions released after their destruction.
Xu Jingming’s mission destination had the highest priority.
Xu Jingming wore an exquisitely tailored black robe and descended from high-dimensional to this lonely planet. Life on this originally extremely prosperous habitable planet had been wiped out.
Infinite Light bloomed upon the high-dimensional descent!
Xu Jingming was like a god in the light!
“He’s here so quickly?”
“A Lv. 10!”
The three Hellion Overlords plundering the spoils of war were terrified because there were no warning signs. This terrifying human Origin lifeform had appeared immediately within the planet’s atmosphere! They were just too close.
Moreover, Infinite Light had already enveloped the entire planet, making it impossible to dodge.
Terrifying Lasers hid within the light, incinerating the three Hellion Overlords into nothingness.
Mission accomplished. Xu Jingming didn’t want to waste any time. As he sent a notification to the Primordial Research Institute through the virtual world, he waved his hand and put away the spoils of war.
Immediately after, the second mission arrived.
Xu Jingming didn’t hesitate to leave the planet and head elsewhere.
In this wave of plundering, Xu Jingming had to make the best use of his time to kill two details.
He was relatively fast, allowing him to successfully intercept the second Hellion detail. He killed a total of five Hellion Overlords in two attempts.
I wonder if there will be another wave. Xu Jingming stood on the top floor of a skyscraper and looked at the city and planet as he waited silently.
Overlord Youfu’s was naturally slower plundering alone. After 28 seconds, a team of Origin lifeforms appeared. There were a total of nine of them, and the moment they appeared, dazzling starlight illuminated their surroundings.
Spacetime began to distort, and a huge ‘web’ enveloped the planet. It rapidly shrunk in a bid to completely restrain Overlord Youfu.
The nine human Origin lifeforms’ eyes were cold as they showed no pity to the female Hellion Overlord.
Humans and Hellions had completely different combat strategies on the battlefield.
The Hellions didn’t care much about death. The Hellion members were relatively scattered during their plundering, so their losses were relatively higher.
It was different for the humans.
Lv. 9s usually formed teams and were equipped with powerful technological weapons! A Lv. 9 Origin lifeform team equipped with technological weapons issued by the Cosmic Human Alliance was comparable to a Lv. 10.
They could match a Lv. 10 Hellion Sovereign even if they encountered one and were confident in escaping. Therefore, the casualty rate was much lower.
But… It was a battlefield after all, so there would naturally be casualties!
The invisible Nightmare World descended. Compared to it, this habitable planet was like a drop of water in a huge ocean. The expressions of the nine human Origin lifeforms changed drastically, and the AI of the technological weapon issued an alarm.
“Warning! Emergence of high-dimensional forces.”
“Warning! Emergence of high-dimensional forces.”
The technological weapons equipped by the nine Origin lifeforms were already very sophisticated. They obstructed the Nightmare World’s infiltration, but they ultimately failed.
Pu! Pu! Pu! Pu! Pu! Pu! Pu!
The nine people were like nine bubbles that instantly burst.
“Where is this?”
The consciousnesses of the nine Origin lifeforms were dragged into the Nightmare World and devoured by the monsters.
Sovereign Moyou walked out of the illusion and sighed softly. If one looked carefully, they could see nine human faces struggling within.
Instead of the prey I was waiting for, I got nine small fries. Sovereign Moyou looked at the technological weapons left behind by the human Origin lifeform team. With a thought, he put them away in the Nightmare World. Human technological weapons are quite impressive. The legendary forbidden weapon… is something that even the Progenitor fears. It’s incredible! Technology has actually reached this level.
“Sovereign.” Youfu rushed over.
“Let’s go. I’ve been exposed,” Sovereign Moyou said. “Humans won’t let that lovely prey come over.”
“You killed nine human Origin lifeforms after all,” Youfu remarked.
“Do you know how many Hellion Overlords that mysterious guardian, the Dark Spearman, has killed in less than 100 years?” Sovereign Moyou smiled.
“I heard it’s quite a bit,” Youfu said.
“Although we had reduced the frequency of plundering in the Star Alliance he guards, it’s estimated that at least 1,000 Hellion Overlords have died at his hands,” Sovereign Moyou said. “As for me, I’ve fought on the front line for more than 10,000 years. I’ve only killed 2,000 to 3,000 human Origin lifeforms. How long has he been fighting?”
Overlord Youfu said respectfully, “Body counts don’t mean anything; strength is the most important. That Dark Spearman doesn’t even dare to fight a Lv. 10.”
“Right, strength is the most important. It’s fine if some Hellion Overlords die; the weaker ones are bound to be eliminated,” Sovereign Moyou said.
“Yes, even if there are any mistakes in the selection, the outstanding ones will still be revived,” Youfu said.
“Let’s go. As long as the Dark Spearman continues his interceptions, I’ll encounter him soon,” Sovereign Moyou said. “He’s good prey.”
More than half of the nine human faces hidden in his green eyes had been destroyed, and the rest were still wailing in pain.
Silently, Sovereign Moyou disappeared with Overlord Youfu.
