1160 Main Leader Betrayal
Author’s Note: Do Not Purchase Yet
“Calm down… the moment they deactivated the spatial disruptor, we will be able to leave here through the emergency exit,”
The main leader stated with a calming tone.
An holographic display of the cage surrounding Aribia City upper district was playing out before them. By the side it showed distorted footage of the bodies scattered across the city.
They had partially witnessed Gustav’s slaughter spree which had incited the panic they felt. Seeing how brutal he had acted, they didn’t want to get caught by any means.
Within an unknown medieval city, icy stones fell from the skies above as the whole city seemed to be severely lowered in temperature.
The icy stones which were of different sizes, blasted to pieces when they reached a certain height due to a dome covering the entire medieval city.
In the outskirts of this city, some of these falling ice stones were as large as buildings and they fell unhindered to the ground.
A normal person wouldn’t last outside the city since they would he crushed to pieces by the falling ice stones. Hail storms were a usual sight in this unknown location and the climate was usually on the extreme winter side.
A 5’10 tall teenage boy with curly black hair, strolled through the medieval city streets with a slightly bewildered expression.
He was clad in silky and ragged looking brown attire.
A lot of the houses around here were made with ice stones and the temperature was really at a freezing point yet the people of the city didn’t seem bothered by it.
It looked like they strived in coldness.
The teenage boy with curly black hair, stared at a particular part of this city which had a floating cone shaped building in the heart of the city.
He was closing in on that area already and the people around greeted him with respectful expressions upon sighting him.
After a few more minutes, he finally arrived in the vicinity of the floating cone like structure.
A seven foot tall gallant figure in silver and golden armor suddenly appeared before him. This figure sported a long blue hair and was equipped with a massive six foot long sword.
She stood right in front of Endric, blocking his path. By her side were two guards with straight looking expressions both equipped with weapons.
“Tarmac… are you going against your word now?” Endric voiced out while raising his head slightly to meet her gaze.
“Eric, you have accomplished the final task required so I can no longer deny you access,” Tarmac responded.
“It’s Endri… aish, never mind…” Endric gave up trying to correct her.
“There is one thing you need to know before you get into the LIBRARY OF SHADOWS…” The Tarmac resumed speaking.
“What is that?” Endric questioned.
“Do not under any circumstance go for the book with a triple golden starred cover. It is forbidden and you will immediately be pulled out of the Library of shadows,” The Tarmac revealed.
“Your life will be spared if you did not see the contents after getting pulled out of the library but if you so much as manage to take a glimpse of the contents no matter how little, YOU SHALL BE SENTENCED TO DEATH!” She added.
Endric gulped down a throat full of saliva after hearing this.
“Understood,” He replied.
She stared at Endric briefly with a suspicious look before finally moving aside.
“Stand underneath…” She instructed while gesturing at the space underneath the floating cone structure.
Endric did as instructed, moving to the designated spot.
The Tarmac collected a dagger from one of the guards beside her and pulled off her left glove.
An unknown tattoo like marking could be seen in the middle of her palm. She then proceeded to stab the middle of the palm where the tattoo was inscribed.
Blood oozed out and the tattoo changed from white to red before glowing up brightly.
Endric who was standing under the floating cone structure, felt a pull from above and raised his head.
In the next instant, he suddenly disappeared.
“Sir Tarmac, are you sure we can trust him?” One of the guards questioned.
“It doesn’t matter. He poses no threat to us and I will instantly end his life if he chooses to disregard the warnings,” The Tarmac replied.
“But… it seems as though you are really fond of him, sir,” The other guard said with a tone of disbelief and respect.
“My city comes first… anyone who tries to threaten my city regardless of who they may be… I will cut them down,” The Tarmac’s beautiful face twitched a little before she put her gloves back.
She walked away afterwards leaving the guards with surprised expressions. They knew how the Tarmac had gotten close to Endric in the last one year since he was permitted access into the city.
“She must be bluffing,”
“The Tarmac never bluffs,”
Both guards exchanged a brief dialogue before following after her.
-Aribia City (Upper District)
“Yeah I need you to level this part of the city… can you do it?” Gustav asked through the comms.
-“Level a part of the city? How much range?” Ria questioned through the comms.
“A small area… I need you to level it to around one thousand five hundred feet deep,” Gustav replied.
-“Why do I feel like you can easily take care of this, rival!” Ria yelled.
“If I decided to take care of it myself, the entire city will be blasted off the map but you have more control over the earth so you’re best for the job,” Gustav explained.
-“Ugh…” If Gustav was around Ria, he would have seen the blank expression on his face.
‘I need to get stronger so I can flex like this too,’ This was the thought running through Ria’s mind.
“Ria, can you do it?” Gustav asked once more.
-“Okayyy… so long as I am not to far from the area,” He responded.
“Good, I won’t be letting you get into the cage because the roots will take effect on you and also try to ensnare you too,” Gustav voiced out.
“Let’s do it!” Ria became fired up.
Minutes later Gustav was in the air once more. He stared at the city from above as he gave a set of instructions.
“I’ve gotten the humans who live in the houses in that area out of there… you can go ahead,” Gustav voiced through the comms.
After a few more seconds a rumble reverberated across the upper district.
In a part of the upper district, the ground suddenly began to cave in.
Cracks spread across a wide area as the ground collapsed in and continued to spread for a radius of a thousand feet.
All of the building structures in that area as well as the roots all caved in as well. They crumbled as they fell into the large hole.
About a minute later what was left in that area was a hole more than one thousand five hundred feet deep.
Gustav stared at it from above with a satisfied expression before swooping downwards.
He landed at the bottom of the hole in a few momemts which was filled with all sorts of rubble.
It was completely dark at the bottom but Gustav was unaffected by such a situation.
He tapped his wrist area and a holographic display showing a couple of things appeared.
In the next instant, a palm sized device appeared in his grasp.
A smirk appeared on Gustav’sface as he slowly took a squatting position with this device in his grasp.
-A minute earlier
-“Is this what I think it is?”
-“The ground just sank in and now the area we’re situated is now exposed,”
“There is no need for panic leaders, we still exist in another dimensional frequency. We are safe here,”
The main leader kept assuring the other leaders as they watched footage of happenings above surface level.
The space was still dimly lit but there was tension in the air despite the unclear faces of the Genxodus leaders.
-“He just landed at the bottom of the hole…”
-“What is… He is definitely up something,”
Tension rose as they stared at Gustav’s actions.
-“If we’re truly safe here then… what is he doing with that?”
One of the leaders questioned as they spotted a device in Gustav’s grasp.
-“That is the same charge used to affect the other dimensional frequencies earlier,”
-“We are doomed!”
The leaders jumped to their feet as they noticed Gustav placing the device on the ground and activating it.
“Relax leaders, relax!” The main leader also stood to his feet as he voiced out.
“We stiill have contingency plans,” He voiced out while slowly stepping backwards.
Upon arriving at the wall, he tapped a part of its surface.
A small space shidted open in the wall and he stepped in with his back.
“I meant, I still have contingency plans,” A sinister smile appeared on the main leader’s face he voiced out.
Although their faces couldn’t be seen properly, there was no doubt that the other leaders had expressions of betrayal on their faces at the moment.
