Sensing the auras of the experts in the hall, Zhang Che secretly rejoiced at the fact that he hadn’t acted recklessly when he first arrived at the headquarters. It would have been extremely difficult for him to wipe them out, even if they didn’t have a few powerful epic-quality subdued beasts.
After all, there were a dozen high-tier beastmasters present in this hall alone. They would have plenty of legend-quality subdued beasts, even if none of them had a single epic-quality subdued beast!
If a fight really broke out, given his strength, it would be a pipe dream for him to keep them contained in here if they tried to scatter and escape. It was an impossible feat.
Moreover, there was still the unfathomable He Luotu on top of them!
That fellow was able to sway the hearts of people in the greenlands back in the secret plane, restraining them from killing anyone. He had to have some secrets up his sleeves.
-Okay. When an opportunity comes, I’ll send out the information and let the military take care of this headache.- Zhang Che decided inside. He was determined to not take action alone. He’d wait until the military arrived and coordinate with them, trying his best to make sure no one would escape.
While Zhang Che was thinking, Yang Sen lowered his head respectfully and called out to He Luotu, “President, this subordinate has brought everyone here. Please instruct us!”
Done speaking, he didn’t look up to observe He Luotu’s expression. He maintained his respectful manner, acting as tame as could be, like a harmless little sheep.
Up on the main seat at the front of the hall, He Luotu narrowed his eyes, and swept his gaze across everyone, then said boisterously, “Very good. You’re all elites of our organization, escaping from Jingzhou with Yang Sen. In the foreseeable future, you’ll continue following him. When an opportunity comes, you can choose a new city and spread our Freemasons’ ideals far and wide.”
While He Luotu was speaking, an unobtrusive wave of energy that messed with people’s mind silently shrouded the Xinjing branch members.
Hints of confusion flashed across almost everyone’s eyes, including Yang Sen. A surge of hot-blooded emotions rose in their hearts, making them feel like they could do anything for the organization, even sacrifice their lives!
Only Zhang Che, who was disguised as Zheng Huawei, wasn’t affected by the wave of energy. His true strength wasn’t as simple as what was visible, in addition to the fact that his mental strength far surpassed that of ordinary beastmasters.
-What method is this!?- Zhang Che was astonished, but he didn’t dare to show the slightest strange look on his face. Like everybody else, his expression seemed fearless, echoing He Luotu loudly, swearing to spread the Freemasons’ ideals to let the common beastmasters at the bottom of society occupy the dominant positions and fight for their rights.
He Luotu smiled faintly when he saw how everyone was acting from his throne. He said some encouraging words and waved them off, letting Yang Sen bring them away and settle them down.
Zhang Che gathered himself and left with the others cautiously, not daring to be careless in the slightest. He could faintly sense a familiar feeling from He Luotu.
Putting it that way was not exactly right. After all, he had met He Luotu once in the greenlands of the first secret plane he visited. Having a sense of familiarity was only natural.
However, this familiar feeling was different!
Zhang Che was sure that this wasn’t the feeling He Luotu gave him when they met in the past, but a different feeling from somewhere else.
When they were out of the main hall, and Zhang Che wasn’t as nervous as before, a flash of inspiration suddenly struck him. He remembered where he felt that familiar feeling before.
-The demonic gateway!-
He finally recalled the sensation. It seemed he had felt it before when he went to the Bao Islands to kill the demons, at the moment when the demonic army was about to retreat!
The demonic army was too huge at that time, and that feeling didn’t seem off at all, so Zhang Che didn’t put it to heart, thinking that it came from the demonic troops.
Thinking back on it now, the matter might not be as simple as he had thought!
After Zhang Che returned to his quarters, he sat on the edge of his simple bed, pondering. In the end, he reached a shocking conclusion: Although the demonic army had withdrawn from Mercury due to their lack of strength, they weren’t doing nothing. They were still slowly infiltrating the human world!
As for what exactly was slowly seeping in… from the looks of things now, it was very obvious. There should be a formless individual among the demons that excelled in skills relating to souls, crossing the defensive lines of the military silently. It had successfully infiltrated the human world!
Those demons specializing in soul-related skills had chosen to possess the bodies of beastmasters through some unbelievable means, and were working to disrupt the order in human society.
Although Zhang Che didn’t know what the demons’ objectives for doing that was, it shouldn’t be anything surprising. They had to be making preparations to destroy humanity, in the end!
In other words, the demons’ next invasion had become a certainty. It was only a matter of time now!
After thinking of that, Zhang Che’s expression gradually turned grave.
When he thought of things that way, the rise of all the evil cults in Hua Xia, perhaps even all of Mercury, made sense! Also, looking at the signs of cult activities, didn’t they all start spreading after the demonic army withdrew?
In the past, although cults appeared occasionally, they were all half-baked. They’d be quashed by the local government and military once they appeared. It was impossible for them to survive for long.
However, after the demonic army withdrew, the evil cults that appeared everywhere were like wild grass. They were simply endless, even when burned. After the fire was extinguished, they’d immediately pop up somewhere else.
What was even more puzzling was that the evil cults would only be struck at the middle or lower levels. The existence of their senior members was watertight, and nobody could find out anything.
Now, everything could be explained!
Since He Luotu could confuse the minds of others with his words, naturally the demons had methods to control the top executives, making sure no confidential intelligence would be leaked, no matter what kind of interrogation methods were used against them.
-This won’t do. I have to notify father-in-law and the higher-ups of this as soon as possible!- Zhang Che was deeply aware how important this information he deduced was.
This matter concerned the survival of humanity itself!
Admittedly, the strongest warriors of the demons were unable to invade Mercury due to some unknown restrictions, and would be unable to have much of an effect on the human world in the near future… but heavens knew what those demons that had infiltrated human society were conspiring?
What if they had some methods to allow the powerful demons to descend into this world, and eventually succeeded?
At that time, it’d really be hopeless for humanity!
At that thought, Zhang Che opened his personal terminal decisively and narrated his conjectures in detail, then sent it off to Huang Juyun.
