With their powers, they naturally weren't willing to be detained without putting up a fight, and there were certainly no ordinary Blood God Legion soldiers who were a match for them.
Just as they were being surrounded by a large number of soul weapons, a figure descended from the sky with a bright mirror behind him. Under the illumination of the light being released by the mirror, the two of them were instantly detained.
They could still clearly recall that the one who had taken them down was an old man with general epaulets on his shoulders; it was none other than this man!
Zhang Huanyun appraised the two extremely burly men before him with a cold expression.
"You're Legion Commander Zhang, right? I'm Sima Jinchi from the Southern Legion; I'm a subordinate of Legion Commander Yue..." Sima Jinchi began in a loud voice.
"Did I allow you to speak?" Zhang Huanyun glowered at him with a cold expression, and a burst of invisible mountainous pressure instantly weighed down upon Sima Jinchi, striking him with a sense of asphyxiation and cutting him off with immediate effect.
Sima Jinchi had never felt so frustrated in his life! If his soul power hadn't been restricted, then he would've definitely been able to resist, but now, he couldn't do anything?
A'Ruheng glanced at him, and smirked but didn't say anything.
"Do you know what crime the two of you have committed?" Zhang Huanyun asked in a cold voice.
Sima Jinchi and A'Ruheng exchanged a glance with one another, yet just as they were about to speak, the pressure being exerted on them increased, rendering them completely unable to utter even a single sound.
Sima Jinchi's frustration was mounting by the second!
You asked us a question, but you're not allowing us to speak! What the hell do you want!
Zhang Huanyun continued as if he were talking to himself. "You two trespassed on the Blood God Legion base, which is the most confidential legion base in the entire federation. All trespassers are killed with no exceptions. Get these two out of here and execute them."
What?! Did he just say execute?
Sima Jinchi and A'Ruheng's eyes widened in unison, and they couldn't believe what they were hearing!
A'Ruheng immediately tried to struggle out of his suits of soul power restriction armor, but as soon as he attempted to do so, Zhang Huanyun raised a hand to summon a beam of light that shone upon him.
As a result, A'Ruheng was completely immobilized and unable to muster up even a single shred of strength.
Four soldiers had already rushed in, and the two of them were each dragged away by two soldiers.
A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi could clearly sense the substantial killing intent emanating from the bodies of these four Blood God Legion soldiers.
Were they really going to be killed?
A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi were both shocked and horrified by this sudden development.
There was not a single person who truly didn't fear death. Perhaps they would be able to cast aside their fears on the battlefield, but what the hell was this? They were going to be executed for no reason! They were clearly here to find someone, and both of them even had recommendation letters!
Even if the Blood God Legion had just endured a massive ordeal, they couldn't just kill people for no reason! This was nothing more than senseless slaughter!
However, in the face of the pressure being exerted upon them by Zhang Huanyun, they weren't even able to verbally defend themselves.
Both of them felt as if there were countless alpacas stampeding over their hearts! [Alpaca (草泥马) has a similar pronunciation in Chinese to f*ck your mum, so this is a play on words here where they're basically cursing Zhang Huanyun internally LOL] The two of them were dragged out onto the snowy ground, and bone-chilling winds began to bite into their bodies.
Sima Jinchi and A'Ruheng were finally beginning to panic. They wanted to struggle, but the soul power restrictions placed upon them in conjunction with the residual power of Zhang Huanyun made them completely powerless to resist.
At this point, their hearts had become far colder than their bodies. In particular, their hearts sank even further at the sight of the two black mechas waiting for them in the distance. Both of the mechas were wielding huge soul cannons that were being aimed at the two of them.
The four soldiers dragged them over to a pair of metal poles, and there were metal locks on these poles that held their bodies firmly in place.
Meanwhile, the two black mechas began to raise their soul cannons in unison. The soul cannon barrels had diameters far larger than even their heads, and those barrels were being aimed straight at their heads.
The feeling of impending doom instantly spiked their horror to the very max.
Even though A'Ruheng had successfully cultivated the Body Sect's congenital secret method, there was no way that he could increase his own body's defensive prowess while not being able to use any strength or soul power!
As such, if he were to be struck by this soul cannon blast, then that would definitely be the end of him.
How could this happen!
"No, don't kill me!" A'Ruheng suddenly roared, and only then did he discover that he could speak again.
Sima Jinchi also roared with fury, "This is senseless murder! You have no right to kill me; I'm a senior colonel of the Southern Legion!"
"Prepare and aim for their heads." The soldiers completely ignored their desperate cries, and one of them raised his right hand high above his own head as if it were the scythe of the grim reaper.
The two soul cannons in the hands of the black mechas were clearly beginning to charge energy, and light was flashing within the barrels.
A'Ruheng was filled with fury and indignation! Never did he think that he would be killed here under such inexplicable circumstances after suffering through so many years of torment to get to this point.
The soldier abruptly brought down his right hand, and the soul cannons being wielded by the black mechas were fired at once. Two scintillating balls of light were immediately sent hurtling toward A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi's heads, and both of them were high explosive bombs that could even raze small mountains to the ground, let alone a pair of Soul Masters who had no access to their soul power.
An intense feeling of impending doom instantly spread through A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi's bodies, and both of them let loose desperate roars in unison.
Two deafening explosions rang out as two balls of light were instantly launched through the air.
A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi's minds instantly went blank. Were they dead? Was this it?
They felt as if their souls had already drifted over to another world, and their bodies were trembling uncontrollably.
Right at this moment, a slightly enlarged voice suddenly rang out. "Why is an execution taking place? Who are those two people?"
I can still hear? Does that mean I'm not dead?
The same thought appeared almost simultaneously in the minds of A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi.
They reflexively opened their eyes and were greeted by the sight of a middle-aged man with general epaulets on his shoulders, standing in front of the soldiers with a stern expression.
"Legion Commander ordered for this execution to take place, Superior. It's very likely that these two are spies from the Holy Spirit Cult. They suddenly appeared at our legion base just as we were sealing the abyssal plane again, and they were detained by the legion commander. Legion Commander says that he'd rather kill innocents than risk being attacked by Evil Soul Masters of the Holy Spirit Cult again."
"I'm not an Evil Soul Master!" A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi yelled in unison.
"Oh?" The middle-aged man turned around, and Sima Jinchi and A'Ruheng were greeted by the sight of a handsome yet serious face. Neither of them had seen this man before, but they could detect an indescribable sense of pressure emanating from him. This sense of pressure was not inferior in the slightest to that of the legion commander who had just ordered for their execution.
They had been told some general information about the Blood God Legion before coming here, but the Blood God Legion was a top-secret organization of the federation, so even their teacher and superior didn't know much about the legion. As such, their knowledge of the Blood God Legion was also very limited. In a short span of time since coming here, they had already encountered two beings who were either Limit Douluos or extremely close to that level, so how could they not be astonished?
The middle-aged man's brows furrowed slightly. "You say you're not Evil Soul Masters? How can you prove that?"
Everyone was the same; being presented with a ray of hope amid the depths of despair was enough to make anyone extremely vulnerable, even the likes of A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi.
Sima Jinchi hurriedly yelled, "I'm from the Southern Legion; you can confirm my identity with His Majesty, Angel Douluo Yue Zhengen, who's the commander of the Southern Legion! I'm not a spy! I just participated in the Star Battle Net Inter-federation Competition not long ago, and I encountered your Golden Dragon King in the semifinals; I came here this time so I can spar with him!"
A'Ruheng also chimed in, "I'm Tang Wulin's senior disciple brother from the Body Sect, and I also came here to spar with him; how could I possibly be an Evil Soul Master? I've cultivated the secret method of the Body Sect; you can examine my powers to verify that! I'm definitely different from those Evil Soul Masters!"
The middle-aged man heaved a faint sigh as he looked at the two of them. "The legion really has been a little oversensitive lately. Having said that, we can't just kill innocent people. I'll go speak to the legion commander about this; you guys hold off on executing them for now. I'll be back soon."
The middle-aged man departed after that.
A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi both heaved sighs of relief as they looked on at his departing figure. At the very least, they still had a chance at survival!
However, what they failed to see was that as soon as the middle-aged man turned away from them, a smile had already appeared on his face.
Sure enough, he went straight to Zhang Huanyun's office, and he strode in without even knocking on the door.
Zhang Huanyun raised his head to look at him, and he also wore a smile on his face. The images of A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi being held captive outside were being depicted on the screen beside him.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
