Star Odyssey - Chapter 1593
Yu Mu gazed at the girl in horror. “You aren’t dead.”
The girl smiled brightly at him. “Of course not.”
“Are you a seed?” Yu Mu spat out blood as he struggled to speak.
The girl nodded. She behaved in a refined manner. “At first, the company made the arrangements for me to accept you as my master, but you were so bothered by my talent that you tried to kill me. It’s quite tragic, really.”
Yu Mu showed a miserable smile. “I never expected to face this day. Yu Er, do you still see me as your master?”
“Of course! A master is a relationship that lasts forever, and a master is someone who will be missed forever.” The cunning glint in the girl’s eyes suddenly turned incredibly cold, and the same chill entered her voice.
Yu Mu hung his head. “That’s good. That’s good. It’s wonderful to see you before dying. Actually, Master feels quite guilty.”
The girl’s gaze grew sharp, and she suddenly grabbed at Yu Mu. Her hand passed through his body, but no blood could be seen. His body disappeared.
The girl was startled; the true universe? Unless she was wrong, he had absolutely just fled into the true universe. But how could that be? His power level did not even reach 400,000, so how could he enter the true universe?
The girl entered a daze as she stared at the blood on the ground. The next moment, her eyes blazed with fury; that old corpse couldn’t have fled very far!
In space, some distance away, Yu Mu coughed up blood as he fled to an abandoned planet nearby to hide.
The planet was not far from where Yu Mu had been, so he knew that Yu Er would come after him. In order to survive, his only option was to beg for help. However, there was only one person capable of saving Yu Mu: Lu Yin.
The youth was an enemy who had driven Yu Mu into a corner, but he was also the only person capable of saving Yu Mu at this time.
Yu Mu quickly accessed his gadget and called Lu Yin.
After waiting for an agonizing amount of time, Yu Mu finally heard a voice: “Master dear, I know you’re here. You can’t escape, so come out! I won’t kill you.”
The girl’s clear voice echoed through the planet, sounding like something from Yu Mu’s nightmares.
He looked up to see her standing high up in the sky with a hand raised to attack the planet.
At this same moment, Yu Mu’s gadget connected his call, and Lu Yin appeared on the display.
The moment the call connected, Lu Yin saw a girl standing in the sky, attacking the planet. Almost instantly, the display went dark.
On the Greenlight Forest, Lu Yin was stunned by what he had just seen; What just happened? Did Yu Mu just die? Who is that girl?
“Brother Lu, do you need to take care of this?” Luo Shen softly asked.
He soon received another call on his gadget, and Lu Yin immediately answered. The display showed Yu Mu. He had lost the use of an eye, and looked pathetic, which was shocking to Luo Shen.
“All- Alliance Leader Lu! Save me!” Yu Mu’s voice broke as he begged for help. He kept his voice pitched low, and fear filled his eyes.
Lu Yin was surprised. “What’s going on?”
“The conflict with you cost Shamrock Enterprise heavy losses, and the company not only ordered me to be replaced, but also to be silenced, as they need to keep a massive secret hidden,” Yu Mu spoke quickly. He was panting, and constantly glancing over his shoulder as he spoke. He was clearly hiding and scared.
“Alliance Leader Lu, you’re the only one who can save me! I swear, if you save me, I’ll give you Shamrock Enterprise’s greatest secret!” Yu Mu eagerly offered.
Lu Yin’s expression suddenly sharpened. “Why should I trust you?”
Yu Mu gritted his teeth, which caused blood to leak from the corner of his mouth. “Because I just managed to escape by fleeing into the true universe.”
Lu Yin’s eyes went wide. The true universe was a place that only Envoys could enter, or at least someone with strength that was comparable to an Envoy, such as Lu Yin. Yu Mu’s power level barely surpassed 300,000 at best, so how could he enter the true universe?
“I don’t believe you,” Lu Yin bluntly replied. Not even the Perennial World had the means to allow an Enlighter to enter the true universe, so it was clearly impossible for Yu Mu to have done such a thing.
Yu Mu’s voice sounded increasingly stressed, “Alliance Leader Lu, save me! If I’m lying, it’s not a terrible loss, but what if I’m telling the truth? I can tell you what I used to enter the true universe! It’s called a stellular energy pill and it’s the thing that Shamrock Enterprise has always been researching. They only recently succeeded, but now it’s possible for the pill to be mass-produced.”
“Where?” Lu Yin whispered.
Yu Mu delivered the location, and Lu Yin immediately contacted Elder He. At the moment, Yu Mu was quite close to Enron Planet, which was where the people from the Sea King’s Dome had taken up residence.
“Alliance Leader Lu, Shamrock Enterprise will send people to find me as soon as possible! I only have one stellular energy pill left, so I can only escape one more time.”
Yu Mu urged Lu Yin to hurry, only for Lu Yin to suddenly yell, “RUN!”
He had seen a figure appear behind Yu Mu in the display. It was the same girl from before.
The display went dark, and Lu Yin stood rooted in place, lost in thought. Could the stellular energy pill be real, or was the whole thing a scam?
It did not seem likely for Yu Mu to be willing to risk lying. Lu Yin was Yu Mu’s enemy, so why would the man ask Lu Yin to save him? Besides, if Yu Mu was lying, he knew beyond any shadow of a doubt that he would die. Was there really a pill that the Shamrock Enterprise had created to allow an Enlighter access to the stellular universe?
However, this whole thing sounded completely impossible.
In the Outerverse, Yu Er stared at the empty space before her. She had clearly seen Yu Mu, and yet he had escaped from her once again by fleeing into the true universe.
She had no idea how he had accomplished such a thing, but it had looked like the old corpse had been talking to someone, and it had looked to be Lu Yin.
Lu Yin was no stranger to Yu Er. She had stayed within the Great Eastern Alliance for quite a while, and she had also spent time in the Innerverse and the Cosmic Sea. Lu Yin had been a legend for nearly ten years, so she had seen far too many stories about him.
The old corpse had been forced into his current corner because of his grudge with Lu Yin, so why would he reach out to Lu Yin?
There were too many questions that Yu Er needed answered. She had to find that old corpse.
After half a day of searching, Yu Er found Yu Mu on a meteorite, flying to the east.
Yu Mu despaired; was he out of time? Lu Yin had not had the time to save him.
“Oh, Master dear, were you talking to Lu Yin? Why? Also, how are you able to enter the true universe? Can you tell your disciple?” Yu Er moved to stand in front of Yu Mu. She had the strength to catch him in an instant, so she was comfortable confronting him directly as she spoke to him in a soft voice.
Yu Mu sneered at her. “What? You don’t know about the stellular energy pill?”
“Stellular energy pill?” Yu Er had never heard of such a thing.
Yu Mu mocked the girl, “Looks like the company doesn’t trust you if they didn’t even tell you about the stellular energy pill.”
“Then can Master tell me?” Yu Er asked as she stared at Yu Mu. Her long, snow-white legs formed a stark contrast to the dark and dead surface of the meteorite.
Yu Mu shook his head. “In regards for our relationship, I’m going to warn you not to dig into this. The waters of Shamrock Enterprise are deeper and darker than you know.”
Yu Er grabbed Yu Mu and told him, “Go back with me.”
Suddenly, Yu Er grew stiff. The void had broken open, and an old man emerged from the true universe. “Little girl, please let him go. He’s my guest.”
Yu Er turned to stare at the old man who was looking at her with solemn eyes. “An Envoy?”
Yu Mu glanced at the remnants of the shattered meteorite behind him and heaved a sigh of relief. He had survived.
Elder He moved in front of Yu Mu and clasped his hands behind his back. He led Yu Mu away. The Envoy was quite curious about the man he had rescued, as Elder He was privy to the grudges between Yu Mu and Lu Yin, so naturally, Elder He had not expected Lu Yin to make any efforts to save this man. There had to be more to their relationship than Elder He knew.
However, such things did not matter to Elder He. He was simply saving Yu Mu in order to earn a favor from Lu Yin that could be used to help find the Sea King.
The people of the Sea King’s Dome were absolutely certain that the Sea King was not dead, but they also had no idea where he could be. They were helpless to find or save him, so all they could do was rely on Lu Yin.
Lu Yin was already making his way towards the Outerverse. He was incredibly interested in the stellular energy pill that Yu Mu had mentioned, and Lu Yin also needed to collect Aegis’s cloakstone.
The moment that Lu Yin left Fennel Flowzone in one direction, the Wen family entered the flowzone from the opposite direction. Upon learning that Lu Yin had just left for the Outerverse, the Wen family was left with no choice but to chase after him.
It was nearly half a year since Lu Yin had returned to the Fifth Mainland from the Perennial World. On one particular day, some people appeared in the far western region of the Technocracy, and they made their way towards the Sky Creation Academy.
The Sky Creation Academy was the true core of the Technocracy, and it was found in their largest city. In fact, the city actually held the same name: Sky Creation Academy.
During the Tournament of the Strongest, the Technocracy’s participants—Yun, Domi, Yarpet, and the others—had all come from Sky Creation Academy. During ZENITH, Wang Yi had represented the exact same place.
Sky Creation Academy was home to many research teams, and Hui Kong frequently visited the place.
However, Hui Kong was to present at this moment, but instead on a barren planet far away, smashing a huge mechanical monster to pieces.
“You old bald corpse, I’ll tear you apart sooner or later!” The mechanical monster spoke in a clear, and furious, voice.
Hui Kong grinned. “Little baby, go home and drink some milk. You’re starting to get old, and yet Grandpa Hui is as young as ever.”
“You shameless baldy!” There was a bang as the mechanical creature was completely smashed.
Hui Kong looked up and blew out a long breath. “If only Brother Lu were here; there’s so much raw materials for him to use.”
A day later, Hui Kong was roasting a giant beast he randomly caught, when suddenly, his expression drastically changed. He stood and stared off in the distance, unprecedentedly solemn.
A short while later, an old man tore through the void and stepped out. His face remained calm as he looked at Hui Kong. “Someone from the Forsaken Land?”
Hui Kong’s eyes instantly narrowed. “Someone from that place.”
“This old man is Wang Shang, from the Wang family of the four ruling powers. I understand that you are someone from the Forsaken Land, so maybe you will recognize this person.” After speaking, the old man raised a hand and drew an image in the air.
Hui Kong’s pupils shrank as soon as he saw the image, Brother Lu?
“Looks like you know him. Take me to him,” the old man solemnly ordered, his tone leaving no room for questions. He was a rare six-tribulation Envoy from the Wang family who had always stayed on the rear battlefield. His appearance in the Technocracy was merely a coincidence, as he had received an order from the Wang family. He knew very little about the Forsaken Land, but he did not need to know anything; after all, it was a cultivation wasteland.
Regardless of how many experts the Forsaken Land might possess, they were nothing but maggots to Wang Shang. There was no one in the Forsaken Land who was worthy of his attention. He had survived on the rear battlefield for thousands of years, so he fully believed he could survive even if faced with an entire group of the Forsaken Land’s powerhouses.
Hui Kong’s expression grew solemn. He could feel the old man’s strength that had been tempered with blood and battle. This Wang Shang possessed a monstrous killing intent. Even if Hui Kong had stayed in the Technocracy for many years, he could not release the same sort of aura as this old man. It was possible that Wang Shang was actually stronger than Hui Kong.
“I don’t recognize him,” Hui Kong said.
Wang Shang sneered, “If this old man is certain that you know him, then it must be true. Take this old man to him.”
Wang Shang raised a hand and slapped it down. Simultaneously, black ropes appeared from all directions to bind Hui Kong. It was a secret technique: Confinement.
Hui Kong’s expression changed yet again. Hui Secret Art: Omnibreak. A secret technique that could allow a person to see weaknesses in order to defeat the strong while being weak.
Secret technique clashed with secret technique, but Hui Kong saw through Confinement and was not trapped, shocking Wang Shang. “It seems like I’ve underestimated you.”
