“Legend-quality subdued beast!” Sun Haiying paled after hearing Sun Haotian’s words. His legs turned to jelly, and he knelt down on the ground.
He knew it was impossible for him and his Big Brother to escape, no matter what.
“Haiying, it’s all big brother’s fault, dragging everyone down. I shouldn’t have agreed to do those foreigners’ work. Otherwise…”
The words of a man on his deathbed always came from his heart. Thinking that he would die here today, Sun Haotian was hopeless and started regretting his actions that had resulted in him dragging his brothers down.
Sun Haiying shook his head, saying, “Don’t say that, Big Brother. We agreed to it as well. You can’t take the blame alone!”
Seeing Sun Haiying acting so thusly, Sun Haotian smiled sadly, nodded and said, “Good! We’ll pay with our lives at the most! Eighteen years later, we’ll be brothers again!”
Sun Haiying burst out laughing as well, “Right, we’ll be brothers again eighteen years from now!”
In the midst of their laughter, in the skies to behind them, three soldiers with legend-quality subdued beasts had jumped off the fighter planes they were on and were quickly closing in on them.
Sun Haotian suddenly asked, “Haiying, are you scared of death?”
Sun Haiying blanked out for a moment, then laughed, “I’m scared. Only an idiot wouldn’t be afraid of dying… No, even an idiot is scared of dying. But, since things are already like this, it’s no use being scared, either. My only regret is that I can’t be brothers with you for a few more years!”
Sun Haotian burst out laughing, “Hahahaha, good! My good brother! Then I’ll send you on your way first. We can’t let ourselves die at the hands of those soldiers!”
Done speaking, Sun Haotian thrust the dark gold-quality long knife in his hand into the heart of Sun Haiying under the latter’s incredulous gaze and twisted it violently.
Sun Haiying was filled with disbelief. A trail of blood leaked out from the corner of his lips, mumbling, “Big Brother…”
In the next moment, Sun Haotian smiled bitterly as he pulled out the long knife and directly drew it across his own neck. Fresh blood immediately sprayed out like a fountain.
Sun Haiying finally understood. He showed a bitter smile, too. Afterwards, his vision faded to black, falling frontwards to the ground.
When the three squad captains came rushing to the scene, they only saw the two corpses laying on the ground. The smell of blood was thick in the air, giving off a solemn feeling.
“What a pity. Since they had such a spirit of loyalty, why do something as stupid as collude with foreign factions?” one of the squad captains sighed. He waved his hand. A subdued beast came forth and swiped its huge claws, digging a large hole in the ground. They buried Sun Haotian and Sun Haiying’s corpses inside.
The execution mission was perfectly accomplished, just like that.
The day after the conclusion of the execution mission, the military coordinated with the Bei Du government and launched a massive purification operation, executing large-scale captures and assassinations of some infamous underground factions and solo beastmasters.
There were only slightly more than three years left until the fifth beast swarm, not to mention the demonic army was like a Sword of Damocles hovering over humanity. Those evildoer beastmasters were definitely an extremely unstable element.
During the snow disaster from two days ago, many beastmasters took the opportunity to rob places, or even rape women. The majority of them were members of such underground factions.
At the same time, it wasn’t only Bei Du. The military liaised with the local governments across all of Hua Xia and launched a large-scale purification operation.
Of course, the operation only targeted people with evidence tied to their names. As for the factions that were only formed to unite people for self-preservation, the military and government departments only gave them a verbal warning, not taking any actions against them.
Not only that, some factions who had always disliked the tyrannical ways of the infamous gangs, and acted cautiously for the people, even cooperated with the military’s operation and helped them lock onto those evil factions, providing them with the most detailed and up-to-date information.
For a time, all of Hua Xia was in fear of the slightest move. All the evil factions or individuals who had committed crimes but left no evidence behind were shaking in fear, not being able to even sleep in peace. They no longer dared to commit evil again.
It could be said that the purification operation that lasted two whole months had reaped a very notable effect in the end.
“Eh? It’s only been a few days; why does the weather feel so much colder all of a sudden?”
Just as he stepped out from the spatial gateway, Zhang Che felt the air was much colder than before. Although he wasn’t afraid of the ordinary cold weather given his physique, it didn’t mean that he couldn’t tell the change in weather.
“Haha, I can watch television again!”
Unlike Zhang Che, who sharply felt the difference in temperature, the elemental queen was cheering, a bright smile on her face.
They had only stayed inside the beast world for about three days, and the elemental queen already felt that she was missing television to death. She was simply like a drug addict. Zhang Che was at a loss for words regarding this.
“Come on, it’s not too late to watch after we get in our plane. The travel time is enough for you to watch a full movie,” Zhang Che told her, shaking his head when he saw the elemental queen’s head was lowered, her eyes brought up close to her personal terminal’s display screen. He pulled her to the military camp at the side.
“Aiya, this servant is afraid there won’t be enough time, Master. Please just let me watch a little while longer.” The elemental queen didn’t believe Zhang Che’s nonsense. With Dijiang-hao’s speed, it wouldn’t take them two hours to get to the next city. If she didn’t make full use of whatever time she had, she might not be able to finish a full movie!
Zhang Che shook his head, no longer bothering with her.
Indeed, when Dijiang-hao landed at the side of the spatial gateway at their next destination, there was still a few more minutes before the movie the elemental queen was watching ended.
Needless to say, Zhang Che waited for that much time before getting out of Dijiang-hao and entering the beast world.
Since they had left a little late today, Zhang Che wasn’t able to get to the indicated location on the map before the sky turned dark.
While they traveled, Zhang Che knew that they wouldn’t be able to reach their destination in time. Thus, he decided to summon the frisky monkey out, ready to scavenge for spiritual herbs along their route.
Alas, they weren’t too far from the safety zone. Despite the frisky monkey being able to sense the spiritual fluctuations in a wide area around him, he didn’t find many spiritual herbs in the end, not even breaking through two digits.
As for the grades of those spiritual herbs, they were even poorer, barely making it within the standards of spiritual herbs.
“Looks like it isn’t very likely for mid and high-grade spiritual herbs to appear in these places. I have to go deep into the beast world again if I want to actually find something worthy.”
In fact, Zhang Che had this idea previously, and ended up exploring that peculiar desert in the end. Although he didn’t find any high-grade spiritual herbs that time, his gains weren’t small, either.
Putting aside the fact that he found a bunch of fire crystals, he even obtained a fantastical lifeform like the elemental queen as his pet, bolstering his combat force!
After shooting a sideways glance at the frisky monkey, Zhang Che shrugged and said, “Hey, don’t blame daddy for not finding a spiritual herb for you. There really isn’t anything good on our way.”
Although he really wanted the frisky monkey to rise in level, or perhaps even in quality as well, it wasn’t such an easy matter after all.
Were high-grade spiritual herbs so easy to find?
The number of high-grade spiritual herbs Zhang Che had obtained over the past few months could be counted with his hands, not to mention it was with the help of the frisky monkey’s ability. Otherwise, Zhang Che would be considered to have heaven-defying luck if he found even one high-grade spiritual herb!
Unexpectedly, the frisky monkey didn’t seem to care whether he could break through. Instead, he rubbed his hands excitedly, looking at Zhang Che in anticipation, saying, “Baba, spiritual honey, roasted meat!”
For a glutton, strength wasn’t important. What was most important was delicious food!
Ever since he had tasted the spiritual honey-roasted meat, the frisky monkey’s tastebuds were thoroughly conquered, wanting to eat a few meals a day.
So, when he heard Zhang Che’s apologetic words, he immediately grew excited. -Baba, you don’t have to feel guilty. Just feed me a few more meals of roasted meat!-
Zhang Che nearly rolled his eyes back. Really, eating was all this glutton knew!
However, he had yet to find the high-grade spiritual herb he had promised the frisky monkey after delaying a few days, after all. Zhang Che still had to satisfy the frisky monkey’s simple request as best as he could.
As a result, in the cave the Purple Crystal Tortoise dug out afterwards, the elemental queen turned into a meat roaster once more, filling the whole cave with the fragrance of roasted meat and spiritual honey.
The elemental queen was indeed a specialist at controlling flames. After this period of time, her achievements at roasting meat had far exceeded the Scarlet Flame Drake, reaching the level of a grand master.
It could be said that the elemental queen had learned by heart how intense of a fire she should use during every minute and second of the process of roasting meat. Roasting the meat to a world-class standard was nothing strange.
Even though Zhang Che had long gotten sick of eating roasted meat a few months ago, he could still eat over a dozen kilograms of spiritual honey roasted meat and still not feel sick of it at all.
After a filling meal, Zhang Che recalled the frisky monkey back into his spiritual sea, then took out two sleeping bags from his spatial storage and spread them open in the cave. The master and pet got ready to sleep.
Of course, the elemental queen had no actual need to sleep.
However, after watching Zhang Che sleep a few times, she learned the unique skill of sleeping without anyone teaching her, and she would even wake up a little later than Zhang Che.
It was still early. Naturally the two wouldn’t fall asleep so soon. As such, Zhang Che fished out a few books from his spatial storage. He had specially bought them for the elemental queen before embarking on this journey, aiming to help her get rid of her addiction to television.
However, it didn’t seem to be going well thus far.
Although the elemental queen had listened to Zhang Che’s suggestion and started reading books, it felt like she was reading them half-heartedly, probably thinking of watching television.
Zhang Che didn’t bother with her. He sat on top of his sleeping bag, flipping a book open as well and started reading with the help of the flames from the Scarlet Flame Drake, ready to waste some time.
At that moment, a change suddenly occurred in his spiritual sea. Zhang Che looked inside, a warm smile rising on his face.
The Fiery Scorpion Miss Tienan had gifted him in the past was now starting to break through, on its way to becoming a dark gold-quality beast card!
