With his cultivation base it was natural that he would not be taken without a fight and Ordinary Blood God Battalion soldiers could not be his opponent.
Just when they were surrounded by a large number of soul tools, a figure descended from the skies. Under the shine of the high Bright Mirror, the two proud children of the heavens had been defeated with a single blow.
They still remembered clearly that the elder who defeated them was a general with three golden stars on his shoulders. He was the person standing before them.
Zhang Huanyun looked at the two extremely buffed guys who stood before him with ice cold eyes.
“You must be commander Zhang? I’m Sima Jinchi from the Southern Army Corps. I’m under the command of commander Yue…” Sima Jinchi started loudly.
“Have I allowed you to speak?” Zhang Huanyun coldly looked at him. An invisible pressure bore down on Sima Jinchi like a lofty mountain. He found it difficult to catch his breath and quickly shut his mouth.
Sima Jinchi felt extremely aggrieved. He definitely had the ability to fight back before his soul power was sealed. However, he could do nothing right now.
A Ruheng glanced at him. He chuckled but said nothing.
“Do you know what wrong have the two of you done?” Zhang Huanyun coldly said.
Sima Jinchi and A Ruheng exchanged glances. He had just wanted to open his mouth when he felt the pressure on his body grow stronger. He could not say anything.
Sima Jinchi felt extremely frustrated. ‘You’re asking me questions, but you’re not allowing me to speak. What kind of situation is this?!’
As expected, Zhang Huanyun continued as if this were a monologue, “You two have trespassed on Blood God Army’s base. I’ll have you know that this is a top-secret base! All trespassers shall be executed immediately. Alright, bring them outside and shoot them to death.”
‘What? He’s only spoken two sentences and now we’re about to be executed at gunpoint?’
Sima Jinchi and A Ruheng’s eyes bulged at the same time. They could not believe what they had just heard.
A Ruheng struggled fiercely and was about to break free of his soul power lock. However just as he made that move, Zhang Huanyun raised his hand and a beam of light shone on him.
A Ruheng only felt his entire body went numb. He could not even summon an ounce of strength.
Four soldiers with loaded rifles had charged in currently. Two soldiers escorted one prisoner and brought them outside.
A Ruheng and Sima Jinchi could clearly feel that these four Blood God Army soldiers had killing intents so dense that they seemed to have materialized.
‘Are they really going to kill us?’
A Ruheng and Sima Jinchi were both shocked and at the same time, their fear grew greatly as well.
There was nobody who was not afraid of death. If it was on the battlefield, they might have been able to view death as lightly as taking a trip back home. However they were about to be shot to death without any explanation, how could they accept that? They were only here to look for someone! They had even brought an introductory letter!
Even if the Blood God Army had experienced great tragedies before this, they should not kill people without learning the truth beforehand! This was treating human lives as valuable as stocked hay!
However, under Zhang Huanyun’s pressure, they could not even defend themselves, let alone explain their circumstances.
Their hearts were beating as if tens of thousands of horses galloped across it. The two of them were directly dragged outside to the snowy terrain.
The ice-cold wind pierced into their bodies with a bone-chilling cold sensation. Sima Jinchi and A Ruheng finally started feeling anxious. They wanted to struggle, but the soul power locks on their bodies and the strength the Bright Mirror Douluo left on A Ruheng’s body robbed them of the ability to break free.
The coldness in their hearts was far more intense than the cold they felt on their bodies. Especially when they saw that on the snowy ground, two black mechas had been waiting for them. They had no idea when they came there. They carried massive soul cannons in their hands that had been aimed at the two.
The two of them were dragged forward and pinned onto two metal poles. The poles had locks that locked bodies into place.
The two black mechas before them simultaneously raised the soul cannons in their hands. The soul cannon’s barrels had a diameter that was wider than their heads. The dark and scary barrels were aimed at their hearts.
The feeling of being close to death had pushed their fears to their extremes.
A Ruheng was a cultivator of the Body Sect’s Innate Secret Technique. However, he could not even utilize an ounce of his strength and soul power at the current moment. There was no way he could push his defensive abilities to the extremes.
If they were hit head-on by the soul cannons, they would definitely die.
‘How did things come to this? How did it come to this?!’
“No! Don’t kill me!” A Ruheng suddenly shouted. He had only discovered that he could speak now.
Sima Jinchi howled furiously, “You guys are treating human lives like hay! You don’t have the right to kill me. I’m a senior colonel of the Southern Army Corps!”
“Ready. Target, their heads,” the soldiers took no heed of their exasperated and furious outbursts. One of them raised his right arm. It looked like a reaper’s scythe at the moment.
The two black mecha’s soul cannons were clearly charged. There seemed to be a faint glow pulsing within the barrels.
A Ruheng was not satisfied! He had never thought that after suffering for so many years and after going through many hardships to cultivate to his current state he would die here under such baffling circumstances! He was not satisfied with this!
The soldier brought his right arm down. The two black mechas’ soul cannons fired with a loud bang. Two masses of brilliant light shot toward A Ruheng’s and Sima Jinchi’s heads.
These were a black mecha’s explosive ammunition. They could even mow down a small mountain, let alone two soul masters who could not even utilize their soul powers.
The feeling of death instantly filled their limbs. A Ruheng and Sima Jinchi howled furiously at almost the same time.
Deafening explosion sounds were heard. The two explosions sent two clumps of light into the air instantly.
A Ruheng’s and Sima Jinchi’s thoughts had frozen over instantly. ‘Are we dead? Are we dead, just like that?’
Their souls had seemingly floated to another world. Their bodies trembled uncontrollably.
At this very moment, a voice laced with anger sounded, “Why’s the death sentence being carried out? Who’re these two people?”
‘A voice? I can still hear a voice? Could it be that I’m not dead yet?’
The same thought seemed to have appeared in A Ruheng’s and Sima Jinchi’s head at the same time.
They instinctively regained their senses. They clearly saw a middle-aged man in a general’s uniform standing before them. He was yelling at the soldiers.
“Reporting to the senior officer, it’s the commander that gave the order for the death sentence to be carried out. These two are possible spies sent by the Holy Spirit Cult. They appeared in the army when we were resealing the abyssal plane. They were captured by the commander. The commander had said that it’s better to be safe than sorry so that an ambush by the Holy Spirit Cult like what we’ve recently experienced won’t happen again.”
“I’m not an evil soul master!” A Ruheng and Sima Jinchi said with a tacit agreement.
“Oh?” The middle-aged man turned around. Sima Jinchi and A Ruheng saw a handsome but stern face. They had not met this person before. However, they could clearly feel an indescribable pressure coming from this person. This pressure was not in the least inferior to what the commander who sentenced them to death exerted.
Although they had some basic understanding of the Blood God Army before they came, the Blood God Army was still classified as a top-secret in the federation. Even their teacher and the senior officers were not completely clear about the Blood God Army. There was no way that they would know a lot about it. However in this current moment, when they saw two beings that were close to Hyper Douluos if not Hyper Douluos themselves, how could they not be filled with awe?
The middle-aged man had a slight frown, “You’re not evil soul masters? How can you prove that?”
Even with A Ruheng’s and Sima Jinchi’s will, when they suddenly saw a ray of hope after feeling the despair of death, they became extremely vulnerable. It was the same for all men.
Sima Jinchi said anxiously, “I’m from the Southern Army Corps. You can confirm my identity with the Southern Army Corps’ commander, His Excellence the Angel Douluo. I’m really not a spy! I’ve even participated in the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge recently and have met the contestant Golden Dragon King who’s from here. I’ve come to look for him and spar with him.”
A Ruheng said as well, “I’m Tang Wulin’s senior disciple brother from the Body Sect. I’m also here to spar with him. How can I be an evil soul master? I’m cultivating Body Sect’s Secret Techniques, you can check me if you want! I’m definitely different than those evil soul masters.”
The middle-aged man looked at the two of them and sighed softly. He said, “The army is too easily startled at the mere sound of rustling leaves in the wind, but we can’t look upon human lives as if they were grass. Very well, I’ll go talk to the commander. Put this death sentence on hold for now. Wait for my return.”
After he finished, this middle-aged man walked away slowly.
As they watched his receding back, A Ruheng and Sima Jinchi let out relieved sighs. At least they would not have to die for now. This meant that they would have an opportunity!
However, what they did not see was when the middle-aged man left them, a smile had already appeared on his face.
As expected, he went directly to Zhang Huanyun’s office. He did not even knock, he just pushed the door open and went in.
Zhang Huanyun lifted his head and looked at him with a huge grin. The screen beside him was precisely displaying Sima Jinchi and A Ruheng who were tied to the poles on the snowy grounds.
