The negotiations with Lei Ang went far smoother than what Tang Tian had anticipated.
Who knew if it was the monstrosity that brought forth a shock to Lei Ang, or that the Lion King himself was filledwith the thirst to conquer the Sacred Saint Galaxy, or the unfathomable hatred towards the Honorable MartialGroup, but Lei Ang immediately chose to form an alliance with Tang Tian without hesitation.
He did not stay for long, because the Leo Constellation was at the moment planning to launch a full force attack onthe Honorable Martial Group. Tang Tian’s treasures were provided at an impeccable timing.
To repay him, he gave two subordinates to Tang Tian.
“They’re good, but I have no place for them over in the Leo Constellation, following me is truly a waste of theirtalents.”
To Tang Tian, Lei Ang’s words were for flaunting. But he had to admit that Ursa Major Constellation’s militarysystem was much simpler as compared to the Leo Constellation’s. The Leo Constellation held the most perfectmilitary system in Heaven’s Road, with many outstanding military academies, the military men were revered and thehigher ups valued all of them, forming a favourable atmosphere. The youths of the Leo Constellations were evenmore willing to become outstanding military generals than powerful martial artists.
The Leo Constellation never had a lack of military generals, and it was a common phenomenon to have surpluses ofthem.
Nie Qiu and Zhong Li Bai were such examples, they were both brimming with talent, but they had zero experience,Leo Constellation’s various large armies were full, and they were not willing to waste their time on grooming newtalents for the future or reserves.
In truth, Lei Ang himself was not willing to let the two of them go, but in the situation, he had no other ways left. TheLeo Constellation held the most perfect military general system, with the most military generals being groomed outendlessly. But their seniors were all sturdy and powerful y
oung men with achievements under their belts and richfamily experience to add. Ahead of Nie Qiu and Zhong Li Bai, there were countless people waiting in line as well, andalthough Lei Ang admired the two of them, but he would definitely not disrupt the order and system just for the two.
The both of them knew that they had no opportunity in the Leo Constellation, thus their eyes were set on the UrsaMajor Constellation. To outsiders, the Ursa Major Constellation was full of famed grade generals, and had a galaxyof talents, but the two of them saw it another way. The Ursa Major Constellation’s most outstanding generals wereall spirit generals, although the Ursa Major Constellation had worked hard in grooming out military generals rightfrom the start, but it required time as well, and the youths needed time to grow, and needed real battles to provetheir abilities.
The both of them did not privately seeked shelter in Ursa Major Constellation, but took the initiative to find Lei Angand told him of their thoughts honestly. They did not know of the secret invitation sent by Tang Tian to Lei Ang, butthey thought that Ursa Major Constellation did not truly want to ally with Leo Constellation but in truth wanted touse the name of the alliance.
But they did not mind, raising the strength of their allies was also not a bad choice.
After hearing the two’s elaborations, Lei Ang was quiet for a while, but still agreed to it.
Tang Tian sized the two of them up.
Nie Qiu had a slightly round pale face full of baby fat and did not have a huge stature. He had short hair with largeforehead, and was quiet and resembled a good student. The only unique thing about him was his eyes. His eyes werealways shut, and his mouth always had a shallow smile.
Tang Tian was surprised: “Your eyes…..”
Nie Qiu bowed, and then said warmly: “I was born blind.”
“Then how do you command battles?” Tang TIan could not help but ask curiously.
“By perception. Nie Qiu’s face had a shallow yet warm smile: “This subordinate’s perception is rather outstanding.
Tang TIan was enlightened, but he had never heard of someone who was able to use their perception to command.~Interesting!~ Tang Tian could not help but look at Nie Qiu’s eyes, and the smile on his face.
His eyes then turned to Zhong Li Bai. Compared to Nie Qiu, Zhong Li Bai was on the other extreme, his entire bodyhad robust muscles, his face was jagged as though it was cut from an axe, with a small ponytail at the back of hishead, his crude hair made it look like wires. His bean sized eyes were solemn, and even by casually standing there, hegave off a dangerous feeling.
He was like a wild beast ready to devour anybody that approached.
Li Zhong Bai was extremely tall, with a height of over 2m, Tang Tian had to raise his head: “What are you good in?”
“Destroying.” Li Zhong Bai spoke with energy, as though his chest was the place where the voice came from. Uponspeaking, he had squinted his eyes, releasing a fierce glint.
“Are you both schoolmates?” Tang Tian asked curiously.
“We are not.” Nie Qiu’s voice was gently and determined.
‘“No!” Zhong Li Bai’s tone was unkind.
“This subordinate hails from Lionheart, Zhong Li Bai comes from Raging Inferno Academy. Both academies are in anintense competition.” Nie Qiu spoke with his gentle voice.
“Archenemies!” Li Zhong Bai snorted, releasing a cold intent.
Tang Tian understood, and felt that it had become interesting.
He scratched his chin and looked at them, and suddenly asked: “Do you guys wish to go to the Sacred Saint Galaxy orstay in Heaven’s Road?”
“This subordinate wishes to head to the Sacred Saint Galaxy.”
“The Sacred Saint Galaxy.”
The both of them answered at the same time. They were both intelligent people, and knew that the current UrsaMajor Constellation’s structure had already formed earlier on, while the Sacred Saint Galaxy was still an unknown.Furthermore, they were both curious about the Sacred Saint Galaxy.
“The road to Sacred Saint Galaxy is dangerous.” Tang Tian reminded the two of them.
“The profession of a military general is dangerous from the start.” Nie Qiu said.
“Not a problem.” Zhong Li Bai said indifferently.
Tang Tian cut to the chase: “Then let us establish the martial spirit contract.”
He decided to let Bing assess the two of them.
Both of them heaved a sigh of relief in their hearts, they were most worried about Tang TIan’s unease with them. Ifthe boss is uneasy with you, it means that you will forever be unable to obtain true support, and to a military general,the result was catastrophic. They had initially wanted to fight in the big war, without any other intentions, and themartial spirit contract which could not be betrayed quickly earned them the trust.
The two of them quickly established the martial spirit contract with Tang Tian without hesitation.
“Go and rest, we will move out in two days.”
Han Bing Ning was focused, her body as still as a boulder, her gaze never away from the sword tip. The grey flameson the sword tip seemed to be frozen, flickering at an extremely slow rate, fine and minute frost was quickly formingon Han Bing Nin’s eyelashes, the indifferent frost infecting her eyebrows.
In the distance, Liang Qiu squatted, with a thin layer of grey flames around his ten fingers, he had a solemnexpression, his ten fingers seemed to be holding heavy balls, slowly moving around, his entire body drenched inperspiration.
Ah Mo Li’s eyes were enraged, the muscles all over his body tensed up, as though his clothes were about to beripped, the grey flames on the blade’s body danced all around, with every step, he would roar and slash, every stepseemed to be able to move mountains, every roar was like claps of thunder, every blade forming gales.
Sima Xiang Shan was like a shadow, flying all around the training ground, his body brought forth a faint grey figure,the initially fleeting figure, resembled a specter, very yin and unfathomable.
These grey flames were the [Tiny Null Flames] that they had grasped, the talent of the Zero Energy Bodies.
They had initially wanted to call it [Null Flame], but Tang Tian had already used the name. And their might could notbe compared to Null Flames, since inside the Null Flame existed in the Devil Flame. As it resembled a weaker versionof the Null Flames, they had thus named it Tiny Null Flame.
Although the flames were not as tyrannical as Null Flame, the might of the Tiny Null Flames were shocking. Themost direct reflection would be its ability to defend against a saints’ spirit techniques, and if struck by the Tiny NullFlames, it would be even more terrible, it had the effects of destroying energy, and permeating into the target’sbody, destroying the target’s high concentration of energy. Even saints would be heavily injured upon taking astrike, as a saint’s body’s concentration of energy was even higher.
Han Bing Ning and the rest were hailed as the Null Division.
The current members of the Null Division had reached 2000, mostly consisting of Gold Rank Martial Artists whohad completed the reducing energy transformation. After a long time, the Null Division were at a loss, the ZeroEnergy Bodies were powerful, but no one knew of the training after that. And after Tang Tian grasped the [NullFlame], Han Bing Ning and the rest created the [Tiny Null Flame] according to Tang Tian’s experience. The NullDivision’s strength thus gained another metamorphosis.
The Null Division had always been going through the training style of armies, and other than not having a general, the Null Division had no difference from a standard army. Han Bing Ning and the rest did not think about building an army before, but after that, they felt that their use would be to assume strong offenses for the armies, operating as vanguards and such.
By going through the army training, it helped them assimilate better into armies.
‘Ding ding ding’, the bell for the end of training sounded out like a Heavenly chime. ‘Plop plop’, all the tired peopledropped their butts on the ground, all of them fell down, and only Han Bing Ning remained standing with her sword,gasping for breath and closing her eyes to recuperate.
Howls of anguish from the nearby training grounds sounded out, causing everyone to inhale in cold breaths. Butvery quickly, everyone plunged into a state of silence, it was their last training before moving out.
Normally, all of them hated training, but at the moment it did not feel that terrible, but instead they all felt a sense ofreluctance.
They were about to enter into battle, and it was impossible for them to train so relaxingly. Everyone laid on theground, watching the sky, enjoying the silence.
Ten minutes later, everyone had caught their breath and recovered slightly, the lingering sense of reluctancedisappeared, replaced by curiousness.
“I wonder what the Sacred Saint Galaxy is like.” Sima Xiang Shan muttered.
“Could Xiao Shan Shan be scared?” Ah Mo Li Scoffed, and raised an eyebrow towards Sima Xiang Shan.
“Crazy.” Sima Xiang Shan rolled his eyes at Ah Mo Li, it was not intellectual to get into a scuffle with him.
“I am slightly nervous.” Liang Qiu laughed, he could not conceal his emotions: “I heard that the people of the SacredSaint Galaxy are born saints, I never thought that there would be such a terrifying place in the world.”
Everyone’s faces were unwell, The saints in Heaven’s Road were existences at the peak of the pyramid, but in theSacred Saint Galaxy, it was a norm. The thought of a sea of saints caused everyone to feel the pressure.
“What’s there to be afraid of!” Ah Mo Li said unhappily: “Isn’t Crazy Tang strutting around there? I want to go too! Iwant them to see the heroes of the Ursa Major Constellation!”
“Heroes of the Ursa Major Constellation? You have such a big face!” Sima Xiang Shan sneered in ridicule.
“Are you saying my face is big?” Ah Mo Li became enraged: “You want to fight?”
“You think by fighting, your face will become smaller? Face full of fat!”
“Face full of fat….I’m going to kill you…..”
Hearing Ah Mo Li and Sima Xiang Shan fighting intensely, Han Bing Ning slowly opened her eyes. The crystal eyesthat was pure and limpid, refracted the rays of the sun.
~I am finally able to fight alongside you.~
