Ye Shao wanted to stop the guard, but he was blocked by Cang Huo. Ye Shao stopped in his tracks and pointed to the Cang Huo in front of him with his lightsaber. His black eyes flashed slightly, as he watched Cang Huo lift up pale face to look at him.
Cang Huo raised his hand which was originally placed on his right side. There was a thin black whip between his fingers, with the thickness of half a finger. The whip twisted between his hands as if it was alive. Cang Huo raised his hand and swung the black whip on his fingertips. As soon as the black whip hit the ground, it immediately made a hole the size of a fist.
Fierce color flashed in Cang Huo’s silver eyes. With a slight leap from the ground, he jumped into the air. His right hand quickly waved. The black whip formed a disorderly black raindrop and hit Ye Shao standing on the ground.
Ye Shao pushed his left foot and stepped back to avoid the attack.
Dense black ‘raindrops’ hit the place where Ye Shao was originally standing, leaving a mottled shallow pit there, and a layer of shallow dust suddenly filled the area.
Ye Shao looked at the shallow pits on the ground, and then at Cang Huo who was floating mid air. Who was this man? He was able to stay in the air at will, and he had such a weapon in his hand.
Cang Huo retracted the black whip back into his hand, his slender body hovering in the air. His silver eyes were shining with cold light as he looked at Ye Shao standing on the ground.
Ye Shao put away his lightsaber, took out an electromagnetic gun, held one in each hand, and faced Cang Huo. Blue and white lasers shot from the muzzle of the guns, and with the sound of the beams, it shot at Cang Huo hovering in the air.
Cang Huo escaped Ye Shao’s attack just by merely swaying to a side. Then he continued to raise his hand and control to flick the black whip toward Ye Shao. This time, Ye Shao was faster than the whip, which also seemed to carry a small whirl of air, and although Ye Shao couldn’t see it, he was aware of this from the direction of the air flowing around him. He moved his body quickly, and his hands shot two blue and white beams toward Cang Huo.
However, due to the change in the attack pattern of Cang Huo’s attack, even though Ye Shao had escaped Cang Huo’s magical black whip, one cheek was still cut by the airflow around it.
Out of a sudden, there was a small scar on Ye Shao’s white cheek. The bright red blood gushed out of the long and thin wound, leaving a bloody trace on his white cheek.
When the two blue and white electric beams were about to hit him, Cang Huo hovered to the left and escaped Ye Shao’s attack.
Cang Huo made an action in mid air like he wanted to hit Ye Shao again. However, after the blood flowed from the wound on Ye Shao’s face, his action immediately stopped. If he didn’t sense it wrong, the faint smell of blood floating to his nose was unique to people of his planet, and this scent… The scent was very similar to Her Royal Highness, the Princess, who the King was looking for.
The cold expression on Cang Huo revealed a hint of surprise at that time. The man below was probably the direct blood relative of Her Royal Highness, and this smell was clearly the unique sweet smell of a precious birthing vessel.
This meant that the King now did not need to find the princess, as long as he caught this man, he could take him back to their planet, and then let him give birth to his successor.
Cang Huo looked a little confounded. He looked down at Ye Shao, who was preparing his next attack. Compared to the precious birthing vessel, it was not so important to conquer this galaxy. But if he wanted to take this person away smoothly, he must not attract other people’s attention here. After all, this person was likely to become the prince’s consort of the galaxy.
To take him away, it was necessary to create a disturbance elsewhere to attract the attention of the people in the palace. And he couldn’t stay here any longer. After all, this was outside of the Emperor’s residence. He wanted to lead this person to a less conspicuous place than the one here. More importantly, he could not allow him to call for support.
Now he had to contact his companions outside the palace, so that they didn’t have to hide themselves. In this way, he could surely attract the attention of all people. What he had to do was to take away this precious birthing vessel!
Cang Huo quickly made a plan in his mind. He contacted the guard he had just sent away with his consciousness and asked him to convey his words to the ones hidden outside the palace. Then he quickly glanced at Ye Shao and flew to the right.
He had long memorized the terrain and structure of the palace clearly in his mind. Walking this way, he would soon be able to enter a small forest in the palace. The trees inside were very dense, and they were very close to the palace wall, although now there was a patrol guard there from time to time, and there was a protective barrier. But he believed that as long as there was a commotion at the gate of the palace, no one would pass by here. As for the protective barrier, as long as one part was destroyed, the rest would be useless. He could contact his companions outside the palace and ask them to destroy the protective barrier around the palace!
When Ye Shao saw Cang Huo flying to the right, he immediately took out the communicator from his own dimension necklace, but before he could contact anyone, a thin black shadow burst out from the inclined plane and striked through the communicator in his hand.
Ye Shao’s face paled. If the black shadow did not strike his communicator but his head, he would not be standing here. However, since the intruder had such ability, why not kill him with that blow?
Ye Shao found it strange. Clearly, this man wanted to kill him, but now he seemed…lenient? Did he merely not want Ye Shao to alert other people? But what was the reason for him doing so? Ye Shao thought this was getting more suspicious, but it was impossible for him to let this man go like this. Ye Shao glanced at Beck who was standing in the same place. He simply knocked him out with his palm and carried him together in the direction of Cang Huo. What made him feel even more strange was that as long as he slowed down, that person would slow down with him.
It was like he was waiting for him.
Ye Shao’s heart was full of doubts, but he could only run after Cang Huo. After all, he couldn’t let this suspicious person walk around freely in the palace. Now he only hoped to meet people on the way and inform the guards inside the palace.
Ye Shao’s jaw was slightly retracted, and his arm on Beck’s shoulder involuntarily tightened a little bit. While staring at the figure of Cang Huo while constantly scanning the surroundings with the corner of his eyes. But strangely, he did not meet anyone along the way.
The other side——
The eyes of the guard, who was controlled by Cang Huo, were slightly dull, but one would not notice it if they didn’t look carefully. The rest of the guards also only cared about guarding the gate of the palace and did not speak to him. So no one noticed anything unusual about the guard.
The guard stepped to the outermost position where he usually stood, but he did not stop there, and continued walking forward.
“What are you doing?”
“His Majesty asked me to convey a message to the people whom Lord Beck had summoned. They seem to have arrived now.”
Then they saw three tall men coming from the distance of the palace, and their figures became more and more clear in their vision.
“Oh, okay. Go ahead.” The guard, who asked, nodded and said.
The guard did not turn back, but went straight to the three people who were coming this way. There was no trace of expression on his face and his eyes flashed with silver light.
The guard came to the front of the three people who stopped. He didn’t say anything. The head on his neck was cut by something, separating from his body bit by bit, and then fell to the ground. Until the moment his head fell to the ground, a stream of hot blood sprayed from his neck, dying a small piece of sky red.
“Who are you?” The guards outside the palace gate warily picked up their guns and pointed straight at the three men walking slowly towards them.
However, the next second, more strange things happened, and all the guards could hardly believe their eyes——
The back of the three men suddenly and rapidly inflated, and their clothes ripped as they could not support the transformation of their body. Their skin turned dark green, and then their square faces became repulsive. Their white fangs grew out from their thick lips, and their bodies grew taller at the speed visible to the naked eye.
“M-monster!” The guards who had been on guard looked even more nervous now. One of them immediately took out his communicator and pressed the alarm button.
The three ‘men’ who performed the great transformation of living people into monsters in front of the guards did not immediately attack these humans who looked extremely weak in their eyes. As soon as the guard who was first killed by them approached them, they received the message from Cang Huo. Cang Huo told them to attract the attention of the people in the palace as much as possible, and then seek opportunities to destroy the protective barrier.
Although they didn’t know the purpose of Cang Huo’s command, obedience was their only choice.
When the guard pressed the alarm, all the guards patrolling inside the palace were alerted to the danger, accompanied by the anxious voice of the guard, “There are three monsters outside the palace, requesting back up, please send back up quickly!”
