Han Sen made some brief explanation to Zhang Danfeng after he parted with Lin Beifeng.
Han Sen understated everything and didn’t say much about Han Hao, as he knew Zhang Danfeng wouldn’t let Han Hao off easily had he told Zhang Danfeng what had really happened.
Zhang Danfeng thought they were always good brothers and friends because they grew up together and certainly would not accept what Han Hao had done.
Walking on the way to the maglev train station, Han Sen was wondering what he should take with him to Dark Swamp.
There were almost no human activities there, so he would definitely return with lots of prey. Even if it weren’t for the beast soul arrow, Han Sen would still want to go there—he now had sacred-blood beast soul wings and the swamp that might be dangerous to others was easy for him.
Han Sen suddenly heard a glitch sound and all the lights started flashing. Surprised, he looked up and saw a meteor-like fireball quickly falling from the sky toward his direction.
“Warning… Warning… Unidentified flying object detected…”
After the alarm of the planet’s defense system sounded for a few times, the fireball hit a tall building followed by an explosion. It turned dark as the electricity was out.
Even the earth seemed to have shaken a bit. Han Sen looked up to the collapsed building and saw a strange spherical aircraft crashed into the building with half of its body sticking out, surrounded by burning flames and thick smoke.
People were screaming, crying, and running around. This area was a school district and the building hit was a school’s main building. Those running from the building were mostly students about ten years old.
Because it was a public school in the integrated compulsory education system, it was not equipped with a good security system. After the explosion, there was no immediate response.
The electricity had been cut off for some reason and the automatic fire protection system was also paralyzed. In the dark, people could only see the fire at the impact site.
Hen Sen saw the appearance of the aircraft and suddenly clenched his fists. He had seen aircrafts like this one before. A spherical aircraft was beyond current human technologies and could only be produced by the only enemy of mankind in the interstellar era—Shuras.
Shura was the name given to them by mankind, and their true name could only be described in their own language.
Shuras looked like men except that their males had one horn on their head and their females had two.
Both Shura males and females wore masks from childhood. Their masks and horns symbolized their identity.
Human beings had fought them for centuries in the space. In the beginning, because both Shuras’ physique and technology were superior, men kept losing in the battles against them.
About two hundred years ago, mankind discovered God’s Sanctuary and started to gain geno points in this other world, so humans’ physique had been greatly improved. Gradually, humans were able to hold the line and face off Shuras.
Planet Roca was a commercial planet and was nowhere near the warzone. Han Sen felt incredible to see a Shura aircraft here.
He grew up on Planet Roca and had only seen Shuras and Shura aircrafts on the news and Skynet.
When Han Sen was staring at the aircraft, he saw a seven-year-old girl who was hung on the collapsed building with her clothes caught on a steel bar sticking out from the building. She tried to climb back into the building by grabbing the steel bar but she was not strong enough. Struggling, her clothes caught on the steel bar were about to tear.
Face covered in tears and hands covered with dust and blood, she was almost desperate. Even if she could get inside the building, there was fire anywhere and there was no way she could survive.
The little girl gradually lost her strength and her clothes was slowly tearing. From such a height, even an adult who had max mutant geno points would fall to death, not to mention a kid.
Next to the little girl, the door of the Shura aircraft suddenly opened and out came a Shura with a single golden horn on his head and a white mask that covered all his face but his eyes.
The Shura was in a broken suit of alloy armor and bleeding dark green blood all over.
The blood of Shura was different from that of human and was as green as bile, which was another way to tell if someone was Shura.
Han Sen was shocked by the look of this Shura. The decors and materials of the Shura masks had a lot of meanings behind them, but Han Sen didn’t really know much about that. However, just by the look of his golden horn, Han Sen knew this Shura was not ordinary.
Shura’s horns were their most prominent symbol of identity. Their horns were in four colors: black, white, gold, and purple. The black-horned were civilians, the white-horned were elites, the golden-horned were aristocrats, and the purple-horned were royalties.
From this random aircraft had walked out a Shura aristocrat, which surprised Han Sen.
The Shura held in his hands a black katana. The Shuras all had great physiques. Any adult Shura could match a human evolver in a hand-to-hand fight. Stronger Shuras could even reach the level of surpassers.
The Shura came out from the aircraft and saw little girl crying. With a cruel gleam in his eyes, he raised his katana and slash it toward the little girl’s head.
Han Sen summoned the black beetle, bloody slayer and purple-winged dragon all at once and turned himself into a giant winged centaur covered in golden armor, and even his wings were covered in golden armor.
The huge wings brought him to the middle of the building almost instantaneously. Taking the girl with one hand, Han Sen grabbed the blade of the Shura’s katana with his other hand.
Blood suddenly flowed out along the blade.
