In Xinjing City, the military division headquarters…
Huang Juyun was feeling somewhat fretful these few days. Although Zhang Che had gotten in touch with him yesterday, saying that he’d crossed the straits with the Xinjing branch cult members and would be infiltrating their headquarters, it had already been a full day, and there hadn’t been any updates from him.
Huang Juyun knew that a cult like the Freemasons had to have very tight internal security, seeing how the location of their headquarters hadn’t been exposed after so long, nor would they be lacking in experts.
So, could Zhang Che really ensure his safety after infiltrating it? Although Zhang Che was a first rate expert whose strength was only below divine-tier beastmasters, there were no lack of surprises in this world.
Huang Juyun was worried something might happen to Zhang Che on this mission, and the consequences would be unpredictable!
If that really happened, he’d rather they not find the Freemasons’ headquarters than something happen to Zhang Che. The value of the location of a cult’s headquarters simply couldn’t measure up to his safety!
“That brat, I should have stopped him from taking action from the start. Hopefully everything works out for him, if not…” Huang Juyun sighed, his expression dark.
Suddenly, his personal terminal rang.
Huang Juyun jolted up when he heard his personal terminal ringing. He immediately opened it up and saw Zhang Che had sent him a message. The worry of his face vanished without a trace, feeling like a huge rock had been lifted from his chest.
“Lucky, lucky. I knew this kid wouldn’t disappoint!”
After letting out a long sigh of relief, Huang Juyun opened the message and read it carefully. His expression immediately changed. When he finished reading the near-thousand-word message, his face was frozen, his brow tightly knitted, his body trembling slightly.
He knew that if what Zhang Che said in his message was true, then this matter would truly be too huge. It was even more terrifying than a hole opening in the sky!
However, if Zhang Che wasn’t confident in this, why would he send back a possibly false message?
“This won’t do. I have to make a trip back to Bei Du as soon as possible. This matter is too big; I have to let the higher-ups and the military know about this quickly!” Huang Juyun stood up with a grave expression, walking out quickly.
Shortly after, Dijiang-hao, which had been left in Xinjing City’s military camp, rose to the skies, and sped off in Bei Du’s direction.
In Bei Du, the military suddenly sent out an emergency summons, calling for all commanding officers of military affairs in all cities to return to the capital as soon as possible. The top figures in Bei Du also quickly made their way from wherever they were at to the military headquarters.
At the same time, the government had also sent out a similar order on their side, summoning all staff who were qualified to attend a meeting with the top brass urgently.
This time, the government and the military would conduct an important joint meeting.
The content of the joint conference was the urgent encrypted intelligence regarding the demons Huang Juyun had brought back. He didn’t explain the situation in detail, but he mentioned in his message that the evil cults spread through the lands might be related to the demons.
Just this point alone was enough to make both the government and military come together and prepare themselves.
Although the demonic army had withdrawn, and it seemed like the human world wouldn’t be in any danger for now, they had found out there might be some mysterious individuals among the demons that had infiltrated human society and built up many evil cults.
This significance behind all this was incredible.
Putting all else aside, if those evil cults decided to act up and cause destruction, they could throw human society into chaos, and badly affect the upcoming fifth beast swarm!
At that time, if the society wasn’t stable, how were they supposed to withstand the attack of the fifth beast swarm? Moreover, the heavens knew if these evil cults supported by the demons were brewing any other conspiracies?
What if their end goal was to get rid of the restrictions on Mercury and allow the powerful demons to descend into their world?
The matter was serious. The top brass had to be anxious about it!
Zhang Che had no idea the message he sent back was like a meteorite crashing into the ocean, raising thousands of huge waves and shaking the top brass of Hua Xia, draining the life from their faces.
At present, he was lounging in his quarters, bored stiff. Although he wanted to go out to scout the area, he didn’t dare leave without Yang Sen’s permission. Things would be affected if they noticed anything strange with him, not to mention he was in the Freemasons’ headquarters. Their security measures were definitely extremely strict!
If he showed any irregularities in his actions, the Freemasons’ higher-ups would surely escape right away, even if he managed to escape safely. At that time, capturing them would become even more difficult!
-When all is said and done, I need to endure the loneliness.- Zhang Che sighed inside. He sat cross-legged on his bed and used his spiritual force to carefully temper his body using the cultivation method for high-tier beastmasters.
No one would think they were too strong and didn’t need to improve further, not even someone like Zhang Che. The fifth beast swarm would arrive in three years. Of course he had to do everything he could to raise his strength!
