“Hmph, worthy of the bloodline of the Mystical Beast Family.” The exotic beast snorted coldly, looking at Luo XiaoLou in a complex and indecipherable manner. However, in the end, its eyes gradually filled with madness and resentment.
“No, I can’t keep him alive.”
Shao Rong took a step back and narrowed his eyes at the exotic beast, not compromising at all, “You’re really embarrassing me like this. You’re going to put him to death even though he helped you remove the restraint? I can’t help but start to doubt the possibility of us working together.”
For the first time the exotic beast looked up to face Shao Rong squarely. Shao Rong’s upturned eyes were nothing short of madness and indifference.
The exotic beast hesitated for a second, and finally said with glittering eyes, “Fine, I can spare him for your sake. But I don’t feel comfortable leaving such an afterthought. I need to inject him with something.”
Shao Rong froze, “What kind of stuff?”
The exotic beast said icily, “You don’t have to worry. It will just remove the exotic beast gene from his body, and then he’ll be completely human.”
With a wave of his hand, he was already handing two reagents to Shao Rong, “I think you understand what’s in here.”
Shao Rong touched the fluff under his hand, still a little hesitant.
“As you said, he’s more human oriented, so maybe you, a blood relative, would prefer him to become a full human.” The exotic beast licked his lips and stared into Shao Rong’s eyes.
Shao Rong took two steps and placed Luo XiaoLou on the counter, “I hope you don’t do anything else.”
The folds on the exotic beast’s face moved as if smiling, “Of course! I won’t let you down.”
He held down the constantly tossing Luo XiaoLou with one hand, and with the other he took the blue reagent and injected it into the bottom of Luo XiaoLou’s neck.
Luo XiaoLou felt a sudden spinning sensation. The relaxation he felt when he became beastly was completely replaced by painful dizziness.
No, at this rate, he would definitely-
The exotic beast picked up the red reagent under Shao Rong’s watchful eye, and as he leaned towards Luo XiaoLou, a very fine beam of light was shot at him.
The reagent shattered, followed by several other beams of light shooting at the exotic beast and Shao Rong. Both were shocked, the energy was too huge. But there was no way there could be anything beyond the two of them on the entire floating island. The two of them retreated back sharply.
A huge dark blue mecha appeared out of nowhere behind the tower, and a huge knife pointed at them.
“Leave now.” An electronic voice rang out.
Shao Rong froze, but as if sensing something, he moved a few steps back. He looked at Luo XiaoLou on the platform and moved his fingers.
The exotic beast, on the other hand, turned pale, “Holy beast mecha? Who – who are you? No – no one is driving the mecha? What does this mean?”
“Leave immediately, I won’t let you hurt him, or I’ll break the First Law and kill you, even if no one else does.” The dark blue mecha said in a frigid tone.
The exotic beast stared covetously at the mecha fervently and angrily, “Why are you helping a half-beast that’s headed towards humans if you haven’t claimed them? If you don’t have a master, I can be your master. You know that I’m the last pure-blooded exotic beast in the world.”
A blue light flashed in the dark blue mecha’s eyes, and without answering, he raised his knife.
The exotic beast finally took a step back as well. He slanted a vicious glare at Luo XiaoLou on the stage then slowly said, “Well, when you think about it, you can always come to me.” After saying that, he turned to Shao Rong, suppressing his rage and murderous intent, the nails on his claws growing violently, “I’m going to have some fun and finish those people and then we’ll leave.”
Luo XiaoLou barked, but he realized he didn’t seem to have the means to speak.
“Halt. You must leave the sealed island immediately.” The dark blue mecha looked at the stage and continued.
The exotic beast turned to the mecha incredulously, “Have you been invaded by a virus? Why can’t we kill humans? Aren’t you forgetting something? Or is the word loyalty not entered into your system?”
In response to those questions, the mecha didn’t speak, only began to aim the long range dual particle sniper rifle placed on its shoulder.
The exotic beast looked at the mecha with anger, “You think you can save those people? Have you forgotten that you were invented by our exotic beast kind? Even if I don’t go personally, I can use the Source of Consciousness force to force them to commit suicide.” Saying that, the exotic beast slowly raised its hand.
Luo XiaoLou resisted the pain in his body and stood up.
The dark blue mecha was silent for a few seconds. Whle the particle gun didn’t fire, it emitted an intense light that surrounded the exotic beast’s entire body. Luo XiaoLou could see clearly that it was all Source of Consciousness Force in the form of energy.
The mecha was definitely125, but its appearance had changed. It was more majestic and overbearing. Was this the effect of the upgrade?
Even though Luo XiaoLou’s Source of Consciousness power had now risen to advanced, he had never seen so many Source of Consciousness power streams than what surrounded the exotic beast just now.
In the shroud of light, the exotic beast suddenly cried out to the sky, its voice filled with pain.
“Now I’ve cut off your Source of Consciousness power from controlling those humans, and you yourself are seriously injured. If you don’t leave now, even if I don’t do anything more, you won’t be able to leave this place,” 125 declared coldly.
The exotic beast stared at the dark blue mecha in shock, and even Shao Rong put his usual smile on his face.
Just at this moment, footsteps suddenly sounded outside, while someone shouted, “Go in here and take a look, maybe they’re in here.” It was Yuan Nuo’s voice.
The three people in the hall and the mecha were stunned, and they quickly realized that almost all the people in the left and right halls were there.
Shao Rong and the exotic beast looked at each other, and the exotic beast began to change at a rate that was visible to the naked eye, becoming someone with aquamarine hair, androgenous, beautiful and feminine.
The dark blue mecha disappeared when the others weren’t looking, and it took with it the shattered energy shield on the floor.
Only Luo XiaoLou, who was on stage, didn’t have time to do anything before Yuan Xi stalked in from outside with a gloomy face.
Seeing the furious Yuan Xi, Luo XiaoLou was devastated. His leg was still bleeding and he could barely stand up, it was already too late to hide. He caught sight of the exotic beast making a face like he was about to faint – of course, he was badly injured – and Shao Rong held him up from the other side.
Yue Shang’s eyes lit up when he saw the two, and he mouthed, “Shao Rong, what are you doing here?”
Shao Rong calmly said, “I was walking at the end of the line, I heard someone here shouting for help and came over after talking to you guys.”
Yue Shang was stunned and wondered, “Is that so? I can’t remember exactly what happened.”
Luo ShaoTian stared at Shao Rong and said coldly, “You were fine while the rest of us were all under the control of something?”
Shao Rong smiled and raised an eyebrow, “Maybe the thing that controls us isn’t strong enough and just happened to miss me. By the way, isn’t there one less person in your group too? How do you explain that?”
Luo ShaoTian gave Shao Rong a chilly look and didn’t say another word.
“Have you seen Luo XiaoLou?” asked Yuan Xi.
Shao Rong glanced at the stage with a smile and said smoothly, “No. When I came over, this was the only person here. Could His Highness Prince Consort have gone elsewhere?”
Yuan Xi’s face was getting heavier and heavier. Luo XiaoLou’s life wasn’t in danger, that was certain, but it felt awful that he wasn’t around. Why would Luo XiaoLou leave alone?
Yuan Xi turned to the blue-haired young man, “Who is he?”
Shao Rong took one look at Yue Shang and said, “I’m not sure, but this guy was left here when I came in. He said himself that he was captured by the exotic beast and it seemed to be making a sacrifice for a ritual.”
The blue-haired young man shivered and said in a trembling voice, “Your Highness, my name is Qian Heng, I was captured by those things. At the time, I was taking a commercial ship to my uncle’s home, but when I was passing near the Zawen base, the entire ship was plundered here. Those exotic beasts were killing one person a day, and I’m the last. Fortunately, you guys made it here…” the exotic beast actually cried quietly.
Yuan Xi looked at the man being held by Shao Rong in confusion, feeling that something was wrong.
Luo XiaoLou, on the other hand, was staring at the group, while the exotic beast’s voice rang in his ears, “I suggest you don’t say anything. Don’t do anything. If I’m exposed, then you won’t be able to hide your identity. Also, if I can’t leave, not only will you not survive, but I’ll bury everyone here.”
Luo XiaoLou didn’t quite believe that last statement, but he was worried about hurting Yuan Xi if the exotic beast got violent and hurt someone.
Shao Rong said, “I think Qian Heng should be fine.”
Yue Shang looked twice and also said, “If what you say is true, don’t worry, we’ll take you out.”
Luo XiaoLou was still staring toward them. He actually hoped that Yuan Xi would take the opportunity to kill the exotic beast. If he was allowed to leave, the consequences would be unimaginable.
But he wasn’t able to move right now, and 125 couldn’t make an appearance.
Yuan Xi watched for a few seconds, although he felt something was wrong, he was anxious to find Luo XiaoLou and waved his hand at Yuan Nuo, “Take him to get checked out and hand him over to Captain Kent.”
After saying that, Yuan Xi walked up to the stage and quickly saw three boxes, one of which had already been opened. The middle one and the one on the far right were untouched.
And next to the three boxes, there was actually an animal of the same color as the stage. A white-furred, round body with sea-blue round eyes full of cowering fear, ears drooping down, and a tail wrapped around its legs.
“What is this thing? A Landa Planet animal?” Abel asked in surprise.
His words drew the attention of everyone in the hall.
Walking to the edge of the stage, Yuan Xi grabbed the hair on the back of its neck and picked up the chubby animal, which seemed to be frightened but gave up after a slight struggle. It had even hooked its tail onto Yuan Xi’s arm to keep its balance, and was now looking up at Yuan Xi with a sad face.
Yuan Nuo stared in amazement, “There are actually such docile animals here? I thought they were all just like that perverted plant.”
Yuan Xi had a strange feeling in his heart. This animal he was holding was constantly trembling and naturally making pleasing gestures…
