Chapter 507 Trial
The handsome man explained further, “Evolved insectoids have a very high potential to grow. It’s said that they could reach the cosmic system state and above. They grow at a really fast rate too. Moreover, the insectoids have several special abilities, such as biological mimicry, mind control, hunting instincts, etc. At the same time, they have high-intelligence, capable of being extremely cunning.” “We’ve been hunting this evolved insectoid for six months. In the beginning, it had only reached the body refinement stage. Even so, it still managed to evade our capture. Six months later, the insectoid had broke through the core martial state.”
The man’s chi was rapidly declining, but his eyes had a sliver of relief. They were so scared that the insectoid would come back to kill them once it grew strong. Now that he was going to die, all his worries just then had been appeased.
His words shocked everyone. There were such strong insectoids on planet Lan Jiang?! It could evade three mortal evolution states even though it was just a body refinement state?!
Although it wasn’t very special to reach the core martial state in six months for Lu Ze and rest, it was still a very insane occurrence for ordinary people.
Most Federal University’s elite class students only reached the core martial state during their third year, and this was accomplished with the aid of countless resources from the Federal University. As for the insectoids, they could do the same feat while being hunted.
These insectoids were a ticking time bomb.
Qiuyue Hesha asked, “How did the insectoids evade your hunts?” Even though the insectoids were very intelligent, it was too absurd that three mortal evolution states couldn’t even catch a small body refinement state.
The handsome man also felt bitter. He was a mortal evolution state, and yet, he was played by a small thing.
“It knows how to polymorph. It would enter a child’s body and eat the body. Thereafter, it would shapeshift into the child.”
“It doesn’t need spirit force to shapeshift, so we can’t sense it too.”
“Every time we are about to find it, it would change targets, and thus, there are kids going missing.”
After hearing this, everyone fell silent.
So the missing children were eaten by the insectoid?
Those parents would have never dreamed of such results.
Qiuyue Hesha asked another question, “How did this insectoid appear? Why are you capturing it?”
The man answered, “Six months ago, we were ordered to take an egg to planet Nanfeng, in order to do an experiment. The experiment failed, and the insectoid hive was annihilated. However, we created that evolved insectoid by accident. Our master can’t show himself, so he ordered us to take it back.”
Who was their master who couldn’t show himself?
Lu Ze and everyone looked among themselves.
During this time, the man coughed out some black blood, which turned to smoke upon contact with the air.
His chi dropped rapidly, and his life force disappeared. Eventually, he turned into black smoke and disappeared.
Suddenly, the other two also had black smoke rising from their wrists.
Lu Ze raised a brow. “He has noticed.”
Lu Ze and Nangong Jing did the same process, trying to delay their deaths. The black smoke seemed to have long fused with their body. Their death could only be delayed but not avoided.
Unlike before, the smoke was like a furious beast this time. The life forces of the other two were depleted rapidly.
Qiuyue Hesha quickly asked, “Who is your master? Where is he now?”
Qiuyue Hesha didn’t have much hope of finding the insectoid, but they needed to know who the master was.
Who was crazy enough to do experiments with insectoids and where did he find the egg?
There were no insectoids within the Federation. The queen egg was extremely rare.
The woman’s face was trembling with pain. “We don’t know who our master is. He was in a black robe, and we can’t see his face. Eight months ago, he and his two pals came to our secret base. They controlled us to do experiments for him. They’re probably still in our secret base.”
“Where is your base?”
“50 light-years, East of Chang Kui System, in an asteroid belt…”
Then, the woman died and turned into black smoke. So did the bulky man.
Lu Ze said, “Should we go find the insectoid or the secret base first?”
The insectoid situation would only grow more and more serious if left unmanaged. However, did the master know about the situation here?
Moments later, Nangong Jing rubbed her head. “This is hard. It’s very hard for us to find the insectoid. Moreover, it would take seven days to reach Chang Kui System, even at full speed.”
Qiuyue Hesha smiled. “From the looks of it, the master already realized what’s happening.”
Lu Ze said, “Then, let’s do this. We’ll send the news regarding the base to the Federation and ask them to find someone nearby to go. We’ll deal with the insectoid here.”Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha nodded in agreement. Thereafter, Qiuyue Hesha contacted the intelligence department. Nangong Jing said, “By the way, ask those people if anyone Is near Chang Kui System.”
Qiuyue Hesha nodded.
Lu Ze, Lu Li, and Alice were surprised.
Nangong Jing smiled and grabbed Lu Ze’s shoulder. “You will be able to join once you have your monarch celebration. It’s a special communication group among young dukes.” Soon, Qiuyue Hesha relayed the information. “Old Luo, Jack, and Derrick are on missions near there. They said they would go check it out.”
They were extremely strong among young dukes.
“Let’s think about how we can find that insectoid.”
