Chapter 397: This Was the Same As to Pull Aggression!
When the Spirit Guards had reacted, it had already been too late.
Once those green bean-sized Sawtooth Devour Ants couldn’t find anything else to eat on the city’s outskirts, they had started to invade Golden Edge City due to hunger.
The Sawtooth Devour Ant would start to devour anything it saw with the sawtooth-like mouth. It would then swallow the scraps that had dropped off from the sawing.
It had caused most of the buildings in Golden Edge City to collapse. Of course, the Sawtooth Devour Ants didn’t just devour buildings. They also devoured the normal people and low-ranked spirit qi professionals.
The disaster had come so suddenly that the Spirit Guards didn’t have time to prepare. However, the Spirit Guards had reacted by immediately starting the rescue.
In the natural world, the ants would always be produced by a queen ant. Various types of ants would be given different roles to maintain the ant colony to survive.
However, the Spirit Guards hadn’t been able to find the queen ant based on the movements of the Sawtooth Devour Ants. Therefore, they had requested for a high-class Scholar.
After some research and experiment, they found out that when a Sawtooth Devour Ant devoured enough food, it would activate the queen ant genes within their bodies, causing their bodies to produce 100 ant eggs.
They would then use their bodies as nutrients to nurture those 100 eggs. The entire process wasn’t decided by time but by how much food the Sawtooth Devour Ant ate.
After eating enough food, the Sawtooth Devour Ant would be able to complete the awakening of the queen ant genes within three hours. It would then sacrifice itself to hatch 100 of its same kind, completing the breeding that happened at a pace of 100 times.
This discovery had sent the Spirit Guard experts in the pits of despair.
The Sawtooth Devour Ant was different from the alien insects that came from the alien insect dimensional rift.
The alien insects might be numerous, but each individual alien insect would be at least the size of a domestic cat, allowing for effective attacks. Furthermore, once an expert entered the alien insect dimensional rift and extracted the source-type item, the dimensional rift would be closed.
100 of the Sawtooth Devour Ants didn’t even have the strength that was comparable to a single Normal fey. A child would be able to stomp several Sawtooth Devour Ants to death with force. However, the Sawtooth Devour Ants were just too many. Once they grouped up, they would be devouring everything in sight.
According to the Sawtooth Devour Ant’s reproduction method, even if a single Sawtooth Devour Ant remained, the disaster wouldn’t be considered to have ended. How was it possible to finish killing every single one of these tiny ants?
If they could find an absolute expert in the Radiance Federation to conduct a carpet-style attack on the Sawtooth Devour Ants’ active area, it might be possible. However, if they really did that, Golden Edge City would be turned into dust, and all the wealth would be destroyed.
Misfortune didn’t come alone for Golden Edge City, as another carcinoma fey, the Poison Dust Locusts, appeared.
But these newly emerged Poison Dust Locusts were considered the saviors of Golden Edge City, which was in imminent danger.
When the Poison Dust Locusts had appeared, they had immediately treated the Sawtooth Devour Ants as food. During the battle between the two types of carcinoma feys, the Poison Dust Locusts had ended up as the victor.
Due to the Sawtooth Devour Ants’ counterattacks, the Poison Dust Locusts had also been nearly eliminated.
The Spirit Guards immediately had been waiting for that moment to make their moves to contain the remaining Sawtooth Devour Ants and Poison Dust Locusts.
The high-class Scholars and Fey Observers had indicated that the carcinoma feys, Poison Dust Locusts, were Golden Edge City’s saviors. They had noticed that the Poison Dust Locusts could release poison dust from their wings while flying in the sky.
But after some research, the Scholars and Fey Observers were shell shocked. The Poison Dust Locusts were releasing poison dust that contained emotional toxins, turning love into hatred.
If the love was deep, the toxins would turn it into pure hatred. If the people and spirit qi professionals in Golden Edge City were infected on a large scale, then Golden Edge City would turn into this world’s most horrifying purgatory of hatred.
A Class 5 Scholar had once published an article saying that it was fortunate that the Sawtooth Devour Ants and the Poison Dust Locusts had appeared together. Otherwise, it would have been a city-destroying disaster.
According to what the Moon Empress said, people in the Divine Wood Federation collected the carcinoma feys to use as weapons.
Lin Yuan understood the insanity of the spirit qi professionals on another continent.
While thinking through, Lin Yuan’s thoughts were suddenly clearer. Perhaps, without the protection of a powerful federation, the world of spirit qi professionals was supposed to be in this way.
Seeing how the Moon Empress was serious and concerned, Lin Yuan knew that his Master wasn’t just trying to explain the situation of the Divine Wood Federation to him, but also for him to take care of his safety.
Lin Yuan let out a bright smile that revealed his white teeth. “Master, don’t worry. I will pay attention to safety.”
After living two lifetimes, Lin Yuan knew how precious life was as compared to others. Only by continuing to live would one be able to carry the burden of kinship, friendship, and responsibility.
Therefore, Lin Yuan had always been very cautious when doing anything and wouldn’t easily put himself at any risk of danger.
After hearing Lin Yuan’s response, the Moon Empress knew that Lin Yuan understood the hidden meaning of her words. Just as she wanted to bring another piece of pollen cream ginger cake to Lin Yuan, Cai Cha just happened to bring over the assorted lotus root powder, which was freshly grounded.
Cai Cha placed the assorted lotus root powder in front of Lin Yuan and said, “Young Lord, the Moon Empress asked me to prepare the lotus root powder for you.”
Lin Yuan could see Cai Cha serving a bowl of lotus root powder with tender colors. There was a tinge of gold and silver luster, obviously because of the Silver Stamen Gold Luster Cassia nectar’s addition.
The refreshingly sweet fragrance coming from the assorted lotus root powder entered Lin Yuan’s nose, causing Lin Yuan to feel that flowers were blooming in his mind.
Just the smell of the lotus root powder was enough for Lin Yuan to feel that someone had cleaned up his mind. There was an extremely light feeling as though Lin Yuan was lying on a cloud.
Seeing the clean lotus flowers is enough to clear the heart of impurities.
Lin Yuan looked at the lotus root powder and took another glance at the Suzerain lotus flower feys on the pond, causing him to feel immense pressure.
If I drink this bowl of lotus root powder in front of these Suzerain lotus flower feys, what would they feel? Would they feel agitated?
This was the same as chopping down the trotters of a Black Back Mountain Boar, barbecuing it in front of the boar, and then asking if it was hungry after cooking it thoroughly.
This was the same as pulling aggression!
The Moon Empress saw Lin Yuan sneaking a peek at the lotus flower feys and feeling awkward, so she smiled and said, “Later on, you can drink this lotus root powder in your pavilion. By then, your body will receive another cleansing. The previous cleansing was to clean your physical body’s impurities, and this cleansing is to clean your soul’s impurities.
“The Silver Stamen Gold Luster Cassia is able to cleanse the flesh and the soul. However, it isn’t that easy to cleanse the soul as compared to the flesh.”
