Chapter 183: Equipment Battle, Black Hole Zero
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After seeing the troops guarding the Black Hole battlefield launching an attack on the God-Slaying squad, the spectating civilians in the distance all fell into confusion.
No one had expected that the two teams protecting the Human Race would immediately draw their swords at each other after the Monster Horde subsided.
On the other side, Chris could not suppress his warlike mood. He turned his head and asked, “Vincent, what should we do?”
Vincent did not say anything. Instead, he turned his head to look at Enoch. He wanted to see what he would do.
Enoch’s gaze was resolute as he said, “Defeat them! But try not to kill anyone!”
Vincent nodded in agreement. He then led the God-Slaying squad and charged towards the army.
Just as everyone took a few steps forward, Vincent drew out his Purgatory Blade and pointed it at the army in front of him. Countless black shadows instantly flew out from his body. On the battlefield, an army of monsters that was ten times more terrifying than the previous Monster Horde appeared. Waves of terrifying roars were heard by the oncoming army.
Although the army that was charging knew that the God-Slaying squad strength was astonishing, they were still outnumbered. Moreover, they were all humans, so they did not feel any fear in their hearts.
However, after seeing so many monsters, the army that was charging instantly slowed down. This was because they had fought with monsters all year round. They knew very well of the strength and cruelty of those monsters. Moreover, such a large number of monsters was something that they had never seen before!
Vincent spread his Flaming Wings and flew straight into the sky. He raised his hand and slashed it down. His Collapsing Mountain Strike instantly transformed into eight fire dragons and landed in eight different directions around the army.
For a moment, dust filled the sky and sand flew everywhere. The Arctic Country’s army had no choice but to stop in their tracks. They huddled together and trembled as they looked at Vincent in the sky.
“Put down the weapons in your hands. Anyone who disobeys will die!”
Vincent pointed his blade at the army below him and shouted at them loudly.
All the soldiers subconsciously threw away the weapons in their hands. They then raised their hands as if they were surrendering. They had no other choice!
The lead general, who was in the middle of the army, saw that his soldiers had all given up resisting. He could not help but shout anxiously, “What are you all doing? Quickly pick up your weapons and fight! We cannot just give in to the Falcon Country! We cannot give up on defending our homeland!”
However, at that moment, everyone no longer listened to the general’s words. This was because they had clearly seen the God-Slaying squad defeat the Monster Horde. The peace that they had not felt for a long time had finally arrived. Why did they still want to send themselves to their deaths?
“Don’t listen to him! If we surrender, we can still go home and live a good life. If we don’t surrender, we can only die in battle!”
“Right! Why should we use our lives as the capital for him to claim credit from the emperor?”
“That’s right. Prince Enoch is also a member of the royal family in Arctic Country. What’s the big deal if we surrender to him?”
All the soldiers chose to resist in the face of death. Soon, it turned into a mutiny. The soldiers moved forward in excitement and wanted to tie up the general.
Even though the general had the strength of a lord-class superpowered person, he could not withstand all the soldiers swarming forward. Soon, his weapons were all confiscated, and he was tied up and sent to the front of the army formation for Vincent to deal with.
Vincent did not say anything. He just put away his World-Cleansing Fire. He then ordered the surrounding monsters’ souls to open a path. Enoch walked to the front of the battlefield under the protection of the other members of the God-Slaying squad.
“Prince Enoch, we surrender!”
“Yes, we surrender! We have been fighting the Monster Horde here for years. We are not afraid of death. We just don’t want to fight anymore!”
All the soldiers knelt down one after another. They expressed their sincerity to Enoch.
Enoch pressed his hands together. He signaled for everyone to be quiet. He then said loudly, “I understand how everyone is feeling. Please rest assured. The God-Slaying squad is my friend. They are only here to fight against the Monster Horde in the Black Hole. They have no intention of interfering with the internal affairs of the Arctic Country! After the war is over, everyone can go home and reunite with their wives and children!”
When the soldiers heard this, they asked one after another, “Really? Can we really go home?”
Enoch stretched out a finger and said, “There is still the last Black Hole. After that, all the Monster Horde in Arctic Country will be completely resolved. Although I don’t know how long this peace can last, we will definitely be able to enjoy it for a period of time. Everyone can definitely live the life that they want!”
At that moment, a rather excited military officer stood out. He pointed at the general kneeling in front of him and said, “But they won’t give us a day of peace! After defeating the monsters, they still want to kill the God-Slaying squad, and they will continue to ask us to kill you in the future. These people are simply insane. It would be difficult for them not to fight for even a day!”
Enoch nodded. He was very moved as he said, “Everyone, don’t worry. If my death can bring peace to everyone after the Monster Horde ends, I will ask the God-Slaying squad to withdraw from the Arctic Country and head to Skyfrost City to claim their deaths. This will buy time for everyone to recuperate. After many years of great battles, I understand that everyone is tired. I would like to thank you as well. However, if it wasn’t for the peace of our children and grandchildren, why would everyone throw away their heads and shed their blood here?”
After hearing this, all the soldiers were moved. To be able to hear the prince’s understanding of them was an inexplicable pride!
Suddenly, someone stood up and said, “No, we won’t be safe! After the threat of the Black Hole is over, the emperor will definitely order us to continue fighting with the Falcon Country. As they have such powerful combat strength as well as the God-Slaying squad, our casualties will definitely be even more severe!”
Everyone could not help but lower their heads when they heard that. They could clearly see the combat strength of the God-Slaying squad. Once the battle started, there would definitely be deaths. No matter how many people there were, they would not be a match for the God-Slaying squad.
As for the ambitions of the Arctic Country’s emperor, Frank, who in the entire country did not know?
As long as he was still the emperor, everyone would sooner or later be ordered to enter the battlefield!
“I think that only if Prince Enoch becomes the emperor, can we truly have peace!”
“Right! He advocates rest and recuperation. He also has a good relationship with the God-Slaying squad. He definitely won’t let us continue fighting!”
“Let Prince Enoch become the emperor!”
The soldiers suddenly understood the stakes of the matter and shouted their opinions loudly.
When Vincent, who was flying in the air saw what was going on, he immediately collected the countless souls and said loudly, “The God-Slaying squad will forever be Prince Enoch’s friends. As long as you are willing to support him, we will never attack you!”
After hearing Vincent’s promise, the soldiers who wanted to support Enoch were even more delighted.
In their opinion, to be able to obtain the support of the God-Slaying squad was equivalent to having the dawn of peace!
However, Enoch shook his head and said to everyone, “Everyone, listen to me! If everyone supports me to become the emperor, it will definitely cause turmoil in the entire country. This will be even more detrimental to the stability of our country! I will settle the grudges between me and Frank on my own. Then, no one will have to participate in such a meaningless war!”
When everyone saw that Enoch was still thinking about the Arctic Country, they were even more moved. They were almost certain that he was the best candidate to become the emperor!
However, Enoch did not want the support of the army. This made every soldier worry for him.
Frank was a powerful king of the Arctic Country! He was one of the few king-class superpowered people in the world. Enoch was only a special-class superpowered user. If he went to seek revenge alone, wouldn’t he be courting death?
“Prince Enoch, you are the hope of the Arctic Country. We can’t watch you die. We must follow you into Skyfrost city and force the emperor to abdicate!”
“Yes, we will not put the prince in danger alone!”
The soldiers shouted again.
Enoch was very touched and nodded. He said, “Thank you everyone, but the crisis of the country has not been resolved yet. Let’s not talk about personal grudges anymore. I only hope that everyone can pick up their weapons and follow me to escort the God-Slaying squad to Black Hole Zero. Let them smoothly quell the Monster Horde and we can all have a peaceful day!”
The soldiers understood what Enoch meant. This was because they had received the order to attack the God-Slaying squad when they were fighting against the Monster Horde. The country would definitely not let go of their last chance before Black Hole Zero!
“Okay, we are willing!”
“We are willing!”
Tens of thousands of people instantly came together to petition Enoch and follow him to the Black Hole Zero!
Just when everyone was united, someone suddenly pointed at the general who was kneeling on the ground and asked, “What about the general?”
Everyone immediately fell into silence. Although everyone had no choice but to tie the general to the front of the formation in order to survive, no one really wanted to kill the general who had led everyone through life and death!
Enoch walked forward and personally untied the general to help him up. He said sincerely, “You are General Byron, right! I know that you and your family are all iron-blooded men who sacrificed their lives on the battlefield for the Arctic Country, so you can not commit treason. You will not be my enemy. I hope that the general can travel with us, but if the general is unwilling, I will let the general leave now. I will not make things difficult for you!”
General Byron turned to look at the soldiers behind him. He let out a long sigh and said, “A bunch of brats! They don’t know anything and still want to play mutiny. It’s all up to me!”
With that, General Byron knelt down on one knee in front of Enoch and said respectfully, “Prince! For the safety of the country and for the peace and prosperity of the common people at dawn, I’m willing to follow the prince to complete a great cause. Even if it’s to become an enemy of the entire country, I won’t refuse even if I have to die!”
The group of soldiers followed the example of their own general and knelt down on one knee. They said in unison, “We are willing to follow the prince to accomplish great things. We will not hesitate to die!”
“Thank you, thank you, everyone!”
Enoch could not help but be moved as he looked at the scene.
At that moment, Vincent had already quietly landed on the side. He stood together with the members of the God-Slaying squad and quietly watched the scene of Enoch subduing the people’s hearts.
“Tsk, tsk, just like that, he managed to recruit an entire army?”
Avril could not help but sigh.
Vincent sighed, “The royal family’s origin, their sincere attitude, represents the standpoint of justice. It is Enoch’s greatest advantage, and also the condition for him to become the Human Race’s emperor!”
