Chapter 182: Oath Was Completed, and It Was Ready to Be Reset
Vincent looked at Enoch quietly. Chris looked over as well.
Everyone knew what Vincent meant, but Enoch was at a loss. He looked at Vincent, not knowing what to do.
“Why are you looking at me like that? What is the important task?” asked Enoch.
Vincent smiled and leaned against a rock behind him. He then said calmly, “Our God-Slaying squad has gone deep into the Black Hole. We have seen the worlds connected by the Black Hole. We have also helped other worlds close the Black Hole. Therefore, we have a way to end the Black Holes!”
Enoch stood up excitedly and asked impatiently, “You already have a way to close the Black Hole? Then why are you still fighting the Monster Horde? Can’t you just close the Black Holes?”
Vincent shook his head and said, “Listen to me first! To close the Black Hole, there are certain prerequisites. I can fulfill one of them, but the Human Race has yet to fulfill another condition, which is also the most important condition!”
Enoch frowned and asked, “What condition?”
“The Human Race needs to be unified. They need an emperor who can gather the power of an entire world!” said Vincent calmly.
Enoch’s pupils suddenly contracted. He leaned back slightly. His voice trembled as he said, “So, you want to annex all the countries? Why are you doing this? For the sake of Falcon Country, or do you want to be the emperor yourself? After telling me so much, do you want me to help you destroy the Arctic Country?”
Vincent did not expect Enoch to ask so many questions. For a moment, he lost his senses. After shaking his head, he said, “Why do you have so many questions? Listen to what I say first. If you continue to blurt out nonsense, I will beat you up!”
Enoch did not expect Vincent to suddenly become so irritable. He was a little nervous and did not dare to continue speaking.
For the past few days, Enoch had witnessed the battle of the God-Slaying squad with his own eyes. In regard to the strength of these people, he had some guesses in his heart.
At least in the current human world, their combat strength was invincible. No matter what they wanted to do, no one could stop them!
After seeing that Enoch had finally become obedient, Vincent continued to speak, “When closing the Black Hole, you need to be able to bring along the emperor of the human world. He will need to gather the power of the world and cooperate with someone on the other side of the Black Hole. The person will then need to use the power of the Black Hole to close the Black Hole. From then on, the Black Hole will no longer be a threat! Although I am able to control the power of the Black Hole, the Human Race still lacks an emperor!”
Enoch could not help but say, “I cannot believe what you just said. Just based on this, I cannot help you annex all the countries!”
Vincent shook his head and said, “No, you are not helping me annex all the countries. I am the one who wants to help you, but the prerequisite is that you have to have the qualifications to become an emperor and get our recognition!”
Enoch was stunned. He looked at Vincent, not knowing what to say.
After hearing this, Chris and the others also stood up and looked at Vincent with some incomprehension.
In their eyes, it was only natural for Vincent to become the emperor of the Human Race so that he could continue to lead the Human Race to face the threat after the Black Hole. Be it Gajero or the Phantom Race, they were all very difficult problems. Those who had not entered the Black Hole would not be able to understand what kind of disaster the Human Race was in.
Vincent looked at the confused crowd. He smiled and said, “The emperor of the Human Race does not need to be powerful. He only needs to stay in the Human Race and lead them in the direction of power! Our God-Slaying squad will one day enter the Black Hole and challenge those evil races. We have no time to lead the Human Race. Therefore, we must find a suitable emperor!”
Chris and the others lowered their heads in silence. They still had their own opinions.
Enoch suddenly understood and asked, “You mean, I can be a candidate?”
“Smart! I can help you ascend the throne of the Arctic Country first. Then we will go to the other countries to find a suitable candidate. If we find a more suitable candidate for the throne, you have to promise that you will immediately hand over your throne and submit voluntarily!” said Vincent whilst looking at Enoch.
Enoch lowered his head. He shook his head and said, “Impossible! Even if you really help me become the emperor of the Arctic Country, I will not hand over the throne. This is because the nobles of the Arctic Country and all its citizens will not agree! The blood flowing in our bones will never yield!”
Vincent said with confidence, “Don’t worry, I have my own ways! As long as we choose the most suitable candidate for the human emperor, we will ensure that he or she will have the qualifications to be recognized by the whole world!”
Enoch closed his eyes and took a deep breath as if he was deciding on something. He then said slowly, “Okay, I promise you!”
Vincent nodded. He then stood up and said to the others, “Everyone, if you want to protect the Human Race, not only do you need to lead the king of the people, you will also need to have the combat strength to intimidate the Black Hole myriad races! With our strength, we have to bear even greater courage. Sooner or later, we will lose our names in the human world, but we will represent the human world to intimidate the Black Hole myriad races. This is to ensure that they do not dare to invade the Human Race!”
After hearing Vincent’s words, Teacher Chris could not help but sigh. “If it is as you said, as a force to protect the Human Race, we will forever be forgotten by the Human Race and become a lone army wandering in the Black Hole world!”
“For the sake of the Human Race, we will do anything!” Vincent sighed resolutely.
At that moment, his decision had been made. Even if the members of the God-Slaying squad could not accept such loneliness, he would still protect the Human Race in the Black Hole world alone. In order to ensure that his world would not be invaded again, someone had to make a sacrifice!
And the more powerful the person, the more responsibility he would have to bear!
Angelina’s eyes were red. She was the first to stand out and say, “Vincent, no matter what you want to do, I will accompany you. Even if I have to stay in the Black Hole world forever, I will not hesitate!”
After hearing her sister’s firm stance, Avril also said, “Yes, for the sake of the humans, I will not hesitate!”
The rest of them looked at each other and made up their minds.
“I like fighting the most. As I can no longer find any opponents in the human world, it’s more comfortable for me to stay in the Black Hole world. It’s settled!”
Chris clenched his fists and said with a smile.
“Vincent, I never want to be inferior to you. I can’t let you appear so great alone. I must participate in this!” said Swire.
“I’m your teacher. Whether it’s in the human world or the Black Hole world, I will have to take care of you!” said Teacher Chris firmly.
Nabil gave a simple and honest smile. He then said, “Since you’ve made up your mind, how can you do it without my protection? Count me in!”
Everyone came to an agreement. They looked at each other and laughed silently.
Enoch, who saw the scene, could not help but exclaim in his heart. Their decision was terrifying. One had to understand just how much they had to sacrifice for the decision that they made. And yet they were still joking around.
They would have to spend their life far away from their hometown, living in darkness all year round!
“Everyone! If you can make such a great sacrifice for the Human Race, then what is there that I cannot give up? I hereby swear that I will cooperate with your plan. Even if the human emperor chosen in the future is not me, I will firmly support the chosen human emperor without any complaints!” said Enoch solemnly whilst sitting on the hillside.
Vincent smiled and praised. He then said to everyone, “Next, we will rest for a period of time. Then, we will deal with the Monster Horde in the name of Enoch and help him reset!”
Everyone replied in unison.
Three days later, Enoch, who was already able to walk on his own, left the empty canyon with the God-Slaying squad. They began to advance toward the next Black Hole battlefield.
Black Hole No. 13 was one of the two remaining Black Holes in Arctic Country that had not yet calmed down from the horde. Under the witness of a group of soldiers and civilians, Vincent and the others flattened the Monster Horde that was in front of the Black Hole.
“Oh my god, is this the savior that God has bestowed upon us?”
“We are saved, the Human Race is saved!”
The commoners who were watching from afar could not help but sigh when they saw the terrifying strength of the God-Slaying squad.
On the other hand, the army that was guarding the edge of the battlefield, regardless of whether it was the generals or the soldiers, all looked at each other awkwardly.
This was because the person who was standing beside Vincent and the others was surprisingly Prince Enoch. He was the prince who had been usurped by his own uncle. He was the true and legitimate successor of the Arctic Country.
“Everyone, we have received an invitation from Prince Enoch to come and save everyone from the flames of war. A prince like this is the true king who serves the country and its people. Only when he becomes the emperor can he truly bring peace to everyone!”
Vincent loudly publicized their great achievements in Enoch’s name. They quickly received the support of the people. However, the opposing army still did not move at all. They even looked like they wanted to start a war.
Within the army, the lead general said with an unsightly expression, “If we let them continue this, even if we do not submit, His Majesty the Emperor will not let us off!”
“Then we might as well surrender. After all, Prince Enoch inheriting the throne is a legitimate matter!” said an adjutant from the side.
“Nonsense! Prince Enoch had borrowed the power of another country. Who knows what the God-Slaying squad is thinking? When that time comes, will we become the eternal sinner of the Arctic Country?
The general turned around and scolded the adjutant. He then said to everyone in a deep voice, “Go back and get ready. We have to launch another attack on the God-Slaying squad and Prince Enoch to prove our innocence. Otherwise, it will be very difficult for us to survive in Arctic Country!”
The generals obeyed the order and left.
The vast army was assembled not long after. They brandished their blades at the God-Slaying squad that had just repelled the Monster Horde on the battlefield!
“Defend the imperial power of the Arctic Country and resolutely defeat all those who seek to split the country apart. Charge!”
The general gave the order and the army whistled towards the God-Slaying squad to launch an attack.
