Swallowed Star Chapter 1406
In the original universe, in the sky above the endless Remote Ocean, in the primal secret region—which was the center of the human territory—water pillars condensed to form a being. It was Luo Feng, wearing a fiery cape. Another being stood in the space beside Luo Feng. It was Primal Chaos City Leader.
“How did it go?” Primal City Leader asked.
“All 443 universe masters in the army,” said Luo Feng, “are dead.”
Primal City Leader’s eyes gleamed, and he yelled, “Fantastic!”
In the virtual world of Dream Ancestor’s secret region in the demon race territory.
There was a dimension in the virtual world, and a vast mountain was surrounded by clouds and mist. A giant silver snake swirled and flowed, living inside the mountain. Aside from that giant silver snake, many universe masters from the demon race lived in the endless mountain. There were also some universe masters from the subsidiary races of the demon race living alongside them. Although more than half of the universe masters had entered the World of Jin, all of them had left a body or a godly power avatar in the original universe. With those bodies and godly power avatars, they could easily connect to the virtual world, and through the virtual world, they were able to communicate with Dream Demon Ancestor anytime they wanted.
“No need to worry, the tasks are not…”
Three universe masters from the demon race alliance had gathered together, and a flying beast with gray bones was talking. The other two universe masters were not from the demon race. Suddenly, that strange flying beast looked terrified. Then it disappeared from the virtual world.
“Why did it leave the virtual world without finishing its story?” A colorful and breathtaking universe master from another race whispered. He then turned his head to the other side abruptly. Originally, there had been two universe masters listening to the universe master from the demon race, but now, the other universe master who had been listening had also disappeared.
“Why did they both disappear at the same time?”
The universe master realized that something was wrong. If only one of them had disappeared, it could have been explained by something urgent, which the individual couldn’t explain immediately. However, two of them vanished at once without saying anything, so something strange must have happened.
“Demon Ancestor!” the universe master yelled.
A giant silver snake showed up out of the mist. It had its head raised and looked at the universe master as it said, “Meng Ta Li, why are you calling me?”
“Demon Ancestor, just now, Meng Wan Master and another universe master were talking. Meng Wan Master was sharing some information about the World of Jin. I have never entered it, so I was curious and was listening to him talk also. But Meng Wan Master and another universe master suddenly both disappeared from the virtual world without any signs. And they disappeared at the same time.” It was clear by Meng Ta Li’s eyes that he was worried.
“Disappeared at the same time? Without any signs?” Dream Demon Ancestor bellowed as it realized something was wrong.
Dream Demon Ancestor immediately started to inspect the entire mountain. However, after the inspection, Dream Demon Ancestor felt a horrifying coldness envelop its entire body. It was coldness that could freeze its soul. Not since Dream Demon Ancestor had first become a universe supreme master had it been this frightened. There was no comparison; even when it had lost the battle between the two teams, it hadn’t been so scared.
“Disappeared… All of them disappeared.” Dream Demon Ancestor concluded.
All the universe masters from the demon race alliance had their consciousnesses connected to this mountain. But now, they were all gone. All of them! Only Dream Demon Ancestor and other five universe masters remained—none of whom had gone to the World of Jin.
A giant being appeared on the mountain. It was Shock Demon Ancestor.
“Dream Demon.” Shock Demon Ancestor looked down and yelled, “All the universe masters under me who entered the World of Jin have disappeared!”
“Same here!” Dream Demon Ancestor couldn’t have been more anxious.
Shock Demon Ancestor was anxious as well. “All the universe masters who went to the World of Jin disappeared, and they all disappeared suddenly, without leaving a message! Those who didn’t go to the World of Jin are safe.”
Incredible! The united forces alliance was at a disadvantage; so many universe masters had gone to the World of Jin, and most universe masters from the demon race alliance had entered the World of Jin. If all of them died, it would be a huge blow to the entire demon race alliance. Such an event would be a real nightmare.
“Check. Let’s check,” Shock Demon Ancestor said.
Dream Demon Ancestor immediately sent messages to the universe knights through the virtual world and asked them to check their teachers. After all, universe knights usually carried the keepsakes given by their teachers.
“Demon Ancestor, the keepsake I have has no owner now. My teacher died!”
“Demon Ancestor, my teacher died!”
Even before Dream Demon Ancestor had given an order, some universe knights had begun to contact him. They were losing their minds, realizing that all those universe masters had died. Without exception, all the universe masters who had disappeared from the virtual world had died.
Dream Demon Ancestor and Shock Demon Ancestor felt as if great hammers were smashing their souls. They were upset, terrified, and incredulous. They looked at each other with eyes that were no longer peaceful. Instead, they were filled with trepidation.
“How? How come…?” Dream Demon Ancestor had lost its mind.
“How…?” Shock Demon Ancestor was also dazed.
It was a huge blow—a shock like never before. Previously, the demon race had definitely been a pinnacle race in the original universe. They had originally boasted more than 20 universe masters from the demon race, as well as many universe masters of their subsidiary races. However, they now had only four universe masters from the demon race and five universe masters from their subsidiary races! They would have been considered prosperous before. But now…
“I, I—!” Shock Demon Ancestor raised his head and yelled. “Howl!”
It was filled with anger and agony. The demon race had been building itself up for such a long time. Yet it lost all those universe masters at once.
“We shouldn’t have let them enter the World of Jin! We shouldn’t have!”
Dream Demon Ancestor and Shock Demon Ancestor weren’t the only ones who had gone mad. Father God from the automaton race, Bug Empress, Devil Ancestor from the prison race, Holy Master from the crystal race, all the races in the Northern Territory Alliance, and the powers who had joined the united forces alliance—all of them, whether large or small, were trapped in the same nightmare. A nightmare they had never before experienced.
Some of the powers had had ten universe masters before. Now, they only had one. Some had lost all of their universe masters. It was indeed a nightmare!
“The same thing happened to the bug race alliance? Only six universe masters are left in the bug race alliance?”
“In the Northern Territory Alliance, more than 90 universe masters are dead? Even Star River Master?”
“The same for the crystal race and the prison race?”
As the races in the united forces alliance contacted each other, they found that all the powers had suffered the same fate.
Dream Demon Ancestor and Shock Demon Ancestor felt a bit better now. In their opinion, all their universe masters who had entered the World of Jin had died instantly, so there was no way that other powers had managed to stay safe. As they expected, many other powers had suffered from the same event. They were all from the united forces alliance, so it was very easy for them to communicate with each other internally.
And then… they began to contact other powers in Universe Ocean.
“You mean lots of universe masters died? Nothing happened to us, the skeleton race. All our universe masters in the World of Jin are safe. None of them died after entering the World of Jin…”
“Of course not. The World of Jin is a fantastic world, and it’s beyond our imagination. It’s full of opportunities and valuables. Almost all the great beings in our race went in, and all those who entered the army are still alive. They’ll soon start the tasks from the army, though…”
“Haha! Many universe masters from East Emperor Holy Land entered the World of Jin. Only a few of them died, and they died during selection for the army. What happened to you, prison race?”
As news spread, the united forces alliance was stunned. They had all suffered from a large loss, so they had assumed that it was universal. If it had, indeed, been universal, and all the powers from Universe Ocean had suffered comparable losses, then comparatively, their status wouldn’t be affected; the comparative power of their alliance would remain unchanged. They had been expecting the exact same thing to happen to all the other powers. However, those other powers in Universe Ocean were all safe.
No… To be more exact, they found one other power who had suffered the same fate.
“The same thing happened to you? Purple Moon Holy Land suffered a catastrophic attack in the World of Jin. All of a sudden, all the universe masters from my holy land who had entered the World of Jin died.”
“Ah? Your Purple Moon Holy Land, too? The same happened to the races in our united forces alliance—demon race, bug race, automaton race, prison race, and crystal race. We are in despair. Everyone who entered the World of Jin died.”
“No one survived.”
Purple Moon Holy Land was close with the united forces alliance. After contacting others, they found that all the powers were still intact other than Purple Moon Holy Land and the united forces alliance. They all realized that there must be a secret behind this.
If the World of Jin had decided to annihilate all the outsiders, why had it let all the other powers go? Why did the World of Jin only attack the great beings from the united forces alliance? After all, all the universe masters they had let in the army were fairly scattered. How had the World of Jin located them?
“Nothing happened to the humans!”
“None of the universe masters from the human alliance died!”
Purple Moon Holy Land and the united forces alliance quickly got the news, and they were infuriated. None of the supreme beings were fools; Purple Moon Holy Land and the united forces alliance had a common enemy, and it was human alliance! The humans stood to benefit the most from the united forces alliance and Purple Moon Holy Land being weakened! Plus, Purple Moon Holy Land had unsuccessfully tried to kill Luo Feng in the World of Jin before. Why would a true god of void space let Luo Feng go easily?
Everything pointed to the humans.
“Only the powers from Universe Ocean can accurately locate our universe masters among all those soldiers.”
“It must have been the humans who schemed against us.”
