A World Worth Protecting Chapter 609
This is too royal a treatment… Wang Baole wiped the cold sweat off his forehead. The premium services were almost tailor-made. He was overwhelmed and freaked out. He might lack shame and think himself blessed by Lady Fortune on Earth, Mars, the ancient greenish-bronze sword, and even the Black Spirit Dwarf Planet. But believing that Lady Fortune herself had followed him all the way to this planet of the Star Fang Beasts was a step too far.
Little Missy was equally shocked. She had witnessed the entire series of events—from stones automatically piling up before Wang Baole, to his casual statement, followed by two Star Fang Beasts, which had attained phenomenal success at the Spirit Immortal realm, charging into each other and suffering massive injuries, and finally these beasts digging out their own cores right before they died…
Little Missy was completely bewildered by everything that had happened. For a long moment, she was at a loss for words.
Wang Baole's shamelessness proved to be of some use at this juncture. He recovered quickly from his confusion. He suppressed his shivers, coughed, then said coolly, "See that, Little Missy? Meeting me is the best thing you've done in your life," Wang Baole said. He raised his right hand and waved. The two beast cores flew into his hand instantly. He could feel the terrifying auras as well as indescribable waves of Spirit Qi emanating from the cores. His body began to tremble as if it were struggling to withstand the power of the Spirit Qi.
Wang Baole fought to look calm though, in order to keep up appearances. He flung the cores into his storage bracelet. Then, he stared at the two corpses with bright eyes.
The corpse of a beast that had attained phenomenal success at the Spirit Immortal realm was a treasure trove. Its skin, blood, flesh—even its organs and bones—were considered top-tier materials for refining artifacts or pills in the Federation.
If news of his bounty were to reach the Federation, it would shock everyone. It would shock the whole world.
Wang Baole contemplated if he should stuff the two corpses into his storage bracelet, which was already almost filled to the brim and lacking space. It was then that multiple auras suddenly erupted on the planet!
Perhaps someone had discovered that something was amiss, or perhaps they had discovered the auras of two Spirit Immortal realm Star Fang Beasts had vanished. An incredible aura, one that belonged to a Star Fang Beast King, erupted at that very moment. It seemed colored with slight suspicion as well as anger as it swept across the entire planet.
It immediately discovered Wang Baole's presence. The powerful aura shook with intense waves of emotions when it discovered the two corpses!
"Die!" A voice that seemed to originate from the depths of one's soul blasted Wang Baole's spiritual senses. It shook the heavens and earth, affecting the entire land. The planet shook violently in that instant, and fires burst from the ground. It was as if a force rivaling that of the apocalypse was threatening to wipe Wang Baole off the face of this world!
Everything happened in a blur. Wang Baole had no time to react as fires rose to the sky around him. They formed a gigantic hand that seemed as if it intended to wipe Wang Baole out in a single swipe.
An impending sense of doom overcame him. Wang Baole heard Little Missy scream. His vision turned dark the next moment. He was like a lone raft adrift on a stormy sea, tossed about by violent waves and on the verge of utter annihilation.
An arrogant snort coming from somewhere on the planet rang out at that moment. The instant that happened, the gigantic hand formed from fire froze. It disintegrated soundlessly. The earlier, overpowering aura dissipated simultaneously.
The world before Wang Baole's eyes finally returned to its original state. A shocked and pale Wang Baole fell back hurriedly. His right hand rose and yanked—the two corpses flew into his storage bracelet instantly. To accommodate both corpses, Wang Baole even suffered the pains of discarding numerous puppets and other items.
He barely fit the corpses in his stuffed storage bracelet. Having survived the sudden turn of events, a trembling Little Missy tried to activate the teleportation again. There were no interference this time, and she managed to succeed without a hitch!
The energy waves of a teleportation rumbled around Wang Baole. Just as the teleportation was fully activated, a furious howl rang out from the distant abode of the Star Fang Beasts.
"This is the Hundred Clan Alliance's Mi Luo Forest. No matter who you are, you will regret having harmed the Star Fang Beast Clan!"
Numerous auras belonging to Star Fang Beasts rose to the skies following the furious howl. The heavens trembled as dozens of silhouettes belonging to enormous Star Fang Beasts appeared in the sky. They looked like gigantic meatballs from afar. Each one of them exuded a powerful aura that distorted space. The Star Fang Beast King seemed to stand for the star itself. The immense power exuding from it warped Wang Baole's teleportation, destabilizing it. The teleportation might be disrupted at any moment.
The army of Star Fang Beasts rushed towards Wang Baole as soon as it appeared. The lands quaked, and fires erupted from the ground and rose into the sky. An incredible power, strong enough to destroy everything in its path, swept forward with the charging army!
Wang Baole grew pale. It was as if that incredible power was crushing both his cultivation and his physical body. He couldn't move, and he could hardly breathe at all. Little Missy grew increasingly frantic. The teleportation spell wavered like a candle's flame in the wind, a flame that was shrinking rapidly.
Everything happened within a single moment. Death approached. It was then that Wang Baole heard a gentle, soothing voice in his head. It belonged to a man and sounded vaguely familiar.
"Come, Baole, call for your senior brother. I'll help you deal with this."
The voice didn't sound serious at all. In fact, it had a teasing lilt to it. It echoed in Wang Baole's head. Wang Baole didn't even blink and immediately shouted, "Senior Brother, save me!"
As soon as Wang Baole said that, laughter erupted in the heavens. An enormous, illusory hand filled the entire sky. It seemed infinitely big. It swept across the sky nonchalantly, like smacking balls out of the sky. The Star Fang Beast King and its army of powerful beasts, which had stood strong and powerful a moment ago, shook violently. They were no match at all for the illusory hand as it batted them away and flung them into the distance.
A few failed to withstand the casual blow and were crushed instantly. Those that didn't perish were grievously injured. Even the Beast King spat out a mouthful of blood. Its silhouette warped in the air. Shock flickered in its eyes as it stared at the sky, its voice shaking as it howled.
"Who the hell are you!"
The hand in the sky faded away amidst the Beast King's roar, and an enormous face appeared in its place. It floated in the sky. The face seemed to belong to a young man. He had a fair complexion, long narrow eyes, and freckles sprinkled across his face. It was a rather handsome face that gave an impression of its owner being gentle and mild-mannered. In reality though, the overpowering aura that it exuded made the planet tremble. It was as if he could destroy the planet with a single thought!
The Star Fang Beast King wasn't the only one shaking, Wang Baole was too. His wasn't out of fear though. He shook because he knew that face!
"You… you…" Wang Baole's eyes widened. Waves of emotions threatened to pull him under. He instantly realized the cause of the bizarre events on this planet!
Little Missy's breathing quickened as well. She sneaked a look at the enormous face in the sky. The longer she stared at it, the more handsome she found it…
"A moment ago, you just begged me to help you. Now that I've saved you, you're saying you don't recognize me?" The face in the sky stared at Wang Baole's shocked face as he spoke mildly. He smiled faintly, then spoke again.
"So be it. I suppose this is our first true meeting. Let this senior brother of yours do a self-introduction. I'm… your senior brother, Chen Qing!" the face said, then glanced over at the trembling Star Fang Beast King. He continued in a casual tone, "…and the first Divine King of the Never-Ending Clan!"
