When Hook desperately wanted to enter, he had no idea that at the same time, someone desperately wanted to leave.
In the Land of Sanguinity.
On the banks of the red river, under the tall trees and right by the Flaming Gate were piles of ashes that served as a warning to all latecomers and all who entered again that only death awaited them!
“How is that possible? How could that be?” The tree that Grand Wizard Abraham had turned into trembled fiercely.
He had not expected that his good intentions of wanting to persuade these Robocops into retreating had instead caused them to hasten towards their deaths!
The first Robocop to suffer injuries had lifted its leg to step through the Flaming Gate…
However, in an instant, the flames roared and the Robocop’s entire body, including its steel skeleton, burned into ashes!
The others were stunned; they then understood that this Land of Sanguinity was not some playground, nor was it some battlefield like those in the outside world where retreat could still be considered!
“That’s impossible. Hook was able to leave just now, so what exactly is going on?” wondered aloud the kind Grand Wizard.
“Could it be that the entrance to this place has been closed? But, how could there be such a coincidence?” he muttered to himself in painful self-accusation, “Was I a step slower again?!”
At the same time, the 30 or so remaining Robocops who had already regained themselves started tearing up…
“You, you lot, should just split up. There could be other places where there’s a chance of survival…” he ordered in agony.
At this moment, he understood deeply the frustration the weaker countries had felt in the past.
Humans had always been so; once they fell to the weaker side, only then would they finally understand the value of justice, only then would they understand that having someone to uphold justice was actually a rare thing.
The 30 or so Robocops here were the crème of the crop of hundreds of thousands of Robocops, and the only thing they could do was watch their only hope of survival being destroyed in the blink of an eye, like watching a beautiful soap bubble.
However, not one of them complained or begged; they merely bowed deeply and silently at the big tree that had tried its best to save them before they went their separate ways, their minds still clear.
Everybody knew that once they resorted to irrational and illogical murder, it would be the day of their doom.
Even if they were machines, they still needed to be refueled and maintained…
‘At least they won’t have to die in the arms of their comrades…’ thought the Grand Wizard somberly.
All he could feel now was an overwhelming sorrow that filled his chest, and from it, the birth of a flame of hatred…
‘I’ve cultivated diligently without letting myself be distracted, I’m eighty-years-old without a single companion by my side, and I’m also one of the strongest powerhouses in the world, already at the peak of Lake-level, and yet why, why am I still so powerless?
‘Why did my country collapse from its peak so fast?’
“Why did I save the hopes of these kids, only to have it be destroyed ruthlessly?’
“I hate this accursed world!”
In the outside world, nobody would have ever expected words like that to come out of Grand Wizard Abraham’s mouth, who had always been one with nature and viewed being integrated into nature as his life goal.
Right by this red river, a green oak tree started turned red; in an instant, all its leaves had turned crimson!
It looked just like a red maple tree now, standing tall on the banks of a red river. It was truly an eerie sight…
The Truth Department’s riverside camp.
Atop the grilled fish rack was a great green insect that was eating away, unafraid of the flames below at all.
The other places however, were covered with the bodies of people belonging to the Truth Department, who had all passed away with peaceful expressions.
Qiao Anping looked at these bodies with pain etched into his expression; he should have never brought them into this place.
The Venerable Dragon God was right, this was truly a cruel place!
Before all this, they were still celebrating that they were fortunate to have the Venerable Dragon God and his Draconic Arcane Realm, which meant they could still retreat if they wanted to.
However, after two people had entered and some time had passed, the third team member had wanted to leave the Land of Sanguinity as well, but they realized they could not enter the Draconic Arcane Realm anymore…
These people possessed Pond-level power and were the core elites of the Truth Department. However, in order to avoid losing their minds so that they would not massacre each other, every one of them decided to commit suicide.
There was a reason behind their decision to commit suicide instead of splitting up.
If they did so, their souls could still be collected by the Venerable Dragon God, which meant that they could avoid failing into the impasse that was reincarnation. Everybody knew that for every time they reincarnated, their soul would be damaged once. After a few times, their soul would be completely destroyed and there would be nothing left of them.
This was the only thing that gave a little hope… As long as the soul existed, the person would still be alive; this was another feature of the Era of Vitality. The true death of a person was no longer defined by the death of the physical body.
A person dying without their light going out 1 was normal now. As long their soul, as well as their original memories and their manner of thinking were still whole, this meant the person was still alive.
However, their body of cultivation would be lost in vain. Besides that, they also needed to come up with new plans for their new body.
Therefore, the atmosphere of the camp was chilling to the bone.
In addition, the two people that belonged to the Path of Devils, Black Robe and the young lady, were like fishes in water. They even started cultivating in the middle of all the blood, as if they were not affected at all by the death that surrounded them.
Qiao Anping’s expression was somber and he was silent.
Suddenly, half a grilled fish was flung towards him and he instinctively stretched out two fingers to catch it. He turned his head to see the little insect speaking to him.
“I say, sir, there’s no need to be sad. Dying once isn’t a big deal. When I died the last time, it was so much worse than what they went through. My body was completely destroyed… Yet, am I not eating and drinking as usual right now?” Chong Daqing consoled, “Besides, their souls are definitely with Great Azure Dragon. The most that would happen is that they’re given to my new father to be reincarnated. Whether they become butterflies or bees are up to them, but they better not become flies or mosquitoes. Every time I see either of those I end up with no appetite for three days. I’m highly suspecting that it’s a ploy by Elder Gui Da to reduce my appetite…”
Everyone finally understood why this seemingly innocent insect was not afraid of all the corpses strewn around. It had actually died once itself.
“Haha, I hope so,” said Qiao Anping, laughing bitterly as he nodded his head.
Unfortunately, not everyone was as open-minded as the insect. The psychological gap of an elite of the Truth Department with a bright future and a lowly insect was even greater than that of a genius become an idiot.
All he could hope for now was that they would overcome this challenge they were currently facing, and maybe it was a blessing in disguise. It might even help the Truth Department finally gain access to the emerging Spiritual Insects Clan.
In the end, he was still a superior before anything else. Despite the fact that Qiao Anping was a kind soul, he still could not help considering the big picture.
At this moment, the System was once again uncomfortable.
“Huh, why is that weirdo Black Robe not affected by this at all? How ridiculous!” The System seethed, “Did Anderson trick us? Was it all just a trick of flattery? This fellow might even be the most suitable master for this place…”
“Have some confidence, and stop being so overcautious and indecisive…” placated Fang Ning.
“I’ve always had confidence, but I want to eliminate all opponents in advance. Why not just turn it slightly redder, then I’ll simply kill it…” said the System stubbornly.
“Oh, that won’t do. After all, this fellow isn’t a threat to us right now. Besides, that Safety Obsession of mine can’t be triggered so easily. If I use it too much, it might even weaken, then when the time to use it for real comes, we might not be able to use it at all,” said Fang Ning, shaking his head.
“Are you sure you’re not lying to me? I heard a rumor that Obsession runs deeper the more you use it… If you don’t use for a long time, it might even weaken,” replied the System in disbelief.
“Uh. Just take what I’m saying as the truth. Why are you such a talkative system?” retorted Fang Ning crossly.
“…” The System was rendered speechless.T
