Chapter 83: Fatality Rate – 90%
When Han was trapped in despair, Ye Weiwei was already on her way back home with the Ye family’s convoy fleet.
Flagship, Air Walker.
Ye Weiwei was nervously looking at a temporary stream of news in her room with her fists clenched, she could not believe her ears.
“According to our latest received information, the Milky Way Alliance has acknowledged, a major crisis appeared during this year’s A-19 Exploration event. Within just one hour of activating A-19, the fatality rate has reached 90%. In other words, 90 thousand soldiers have already died in the Extinction Domain!”
“For this, we have invited our special guest, the prehistoric relics expert Professor Prandelli, to explain to us about possible reasons that led to such heavy casualty at this year’s exploration event!”
“Professor, within one hour and almost 90 thousand espers already died, this should be the most serious crisis that appeared in our human history of exploration activities in prehistoric sites, right?”
Professor Prandelli pushed up his glasses a bit, and said in a deep voice, “To be accurate, this is the second highest casualty count. As everyone knows, before the establishment of the Milky Way Alliance, Extinction Domain A-1 was carelessly opened, as a result, the most terrifying monster in history was released, we call that monster the King of Darkness.”
“The Dark King incident directly caused several major empires to perish, and the allied force composed of all the strong fighters in Milky Way suffered a 30% casualty count. The number of deaths was counted with billion as the unit. That was the most serious and tragic crisis in our exploration history.”
The beautiful hostess with red hair was shocked for a moment, and immediately said, “The Dark King? Professor meant that the exploration troops suffering large scale of casualty this time, has something to do with the Dark King?”
Professor Prandelli waved his hand and said, “We can’t make any conclusions yet, the Dark King was unique, and even if a monster at the level of Dark King comes out from the relic again, how can those 100 thousand espers be enough? I’m afraid that even the temporary headquarter built at the Miracle Galaxy would be severally damaged as well.”
“The reason I brought up Dark King is to remind all of you that live at Milky Way, to never forget the power and unpredictability of the pre-historic civilization. These past years, we’ve done well in the exploration of extinction domains, and we discovered many precious treasures and information on various types of warship designs, strong transition times warp engines, and as humanity become empowered by these discoveries, we must also not forget, the miraculous prehistoric civilization that had created these things in the first place, they should be the more powerful existence!”
“Looking at the current galaxy, our civilization is built entirely on the basis of prehistoric civilization, their power is not something we humans can resist!”
“As we have known, the pre-historic civilization originally lived at Milky Way, and for some unknown reasons, they left here. If in theory, one day that civilization returns to the Milky Way, what will happen to humanity? Would we be strong enough to be their opponents?”
The red hair hostess’s felt that her head was about to explode, and she surprised and asked, “Professor, you said that the civilization originally occupied the Milky Way, will they come back?”
“Anything is possible, take the tragedy that’s happening in the A-19 as an example, it can very likely be a warning. Us humans may think that we already mastered great strength, but is that really the case? If we are really strong enough, then why would this tragedy happen to the 100 thousand young talented espers?”
“We must know, these people are all the strongest young geniuses in in Milky Way. Such a lost is no doubt a heavy hit for all countries of the Milky Way Alliance!”
This Professor Prandelli was clearly a pessimist and the red-haired hostess might’ve felt that the news may get too sensational, so she directed the conversation back to what’s happening inside of A-19.
“Professor, lets first talk about what’s happening right now, within an hour and 90 thousand young talents have been killed, could it be because the dark beasts inside the domain suddenly got stronger? If yes, what could’ve possibly triggered this change?” The hostess asked.
Professor Prandelli said with a serious face, “Something must have gone wrong on the inside of the Extinction Domain, but the key is that this is the A-19 relic, we cannot send a regular army into it, because the A-19 is one of the strangest among all the A-class relics.”
“A-7, A-19, A-21, these three relics have been the battlefield that the prehistoric civilization used to train their young soldiers, so the entrance of the relic has an age limit. There’s also another limit for how many people can be send in at once. The moment that the relic closes, no one can activate it again, and we have no choice but to wait until one month after. The survivors inside the relic will be automatically teleported out.”
The hostess hastily asked, “Professor, what number of young soldiers you estimate can survive this tragedy?”
“It’s hard to say, and the only advice I can give everyone is to pray.”
“Will anyone be able to survive from this tragedy?”
“With luck, maybe one or two survivors. One hour led to the death of 90% of the fighters, this difficulty and intensity is beyond imagination. Now, other than praying for the protection of gods, we can’t do anything.”
Watching until here, Ye Weiwei could no longer bear it, she crushed the screen with a punch, and cursed loudly, “Gods! Damn the gods! Han won’t die for sure!”
Ye Weiwei’s small body started trembling lightly, she did not know why she got so angry. Did it matter to her whether Han was dead or alive? No right? No?
Ye Weiwei pushed open the door, bit down on her lips and rushed into her bedroom. Immediately, waves of sighs could be heard coming out of the living room.
“Our lord was very so accurate, something big really did happen at that Extinction Domain.”
“Fortunately our Miss didn’t go.”
“Although Miss didn’t go, Han’s still trapped inside.”
Miracle System, 4th Star, A-19 Extinction Domain
Han was still trying to fight to survive, more than an hour had passed and Han was finally close to the door of that hall of horror.
After non-stop killing this whole way, Han had long been exhausted. In addition to the fighting spirit of never giving up, those sinister gadgets inside his backpack also helped out Han a lot, especially something called the Falcon vine.
Falcon vine was an illegal genetic hybrid species. Biologists extracted the genes of a deep sea creature called the arcuate millipede, and then mixed in several other strange creatures. Even the gene of the black vine and performed genetic hybridization, ultimately obtaining this fast growth evil creature.
The Falcon vine was stored in a sealed capsule, and it could be used by just throwing it to a target location.
The broken capsule will provide the necessary energy for Falcon vine’s growth, and it will instantly grow to an evil creature of more than 10 meters high. They look like a dead old tree, but they were a crossbreed between insects and other creatures. These buggers could easily use their branch-looking arms to trap anything nearby that moves, like a falcon, thus receiving the name Falcon vine.
As Han ran, he threw capsules of Falcon vines behind him, and the tall falcon vines started to grow nonstop, trapping those dark beasts that were in pursuit of Han. Although the beasts had powerful fangs and claws and only needed a few seconds to break free, that was enough to secure valuable time for Han!
Close, it’s close!
Han already saw the exit to the giant hall at the entrance of the Extinction, he started waving his right arm again to use dark fist!
With his left hand retrieving more things from his backpack, he threw all the Falcon vines he had down in a narrow channel.
Hundreds of clawing Falcon vines started growing rapidly, blocking off the dark beasts’ steps to kill Han. Wanting to rip open a path in this much thorny vines, the dark beasts would have to take a few minutes.
The illegal pill Super Ghost gave Han incredible speed. He didn’t dare to look back and just kept on running desperately forward.
The roaring of dark beasts became distant, and light began to appear at the front!
Han dashed out of the dark hall with a stride, and the sight before his eyes immediately shocked him.
