"Do you have any questions?"
The leader noticed Melissa and Johnson's bizarre expression, and asked them.
Melissa quickly calmed down, and revealed a pained expression: "I am very saddened to hear Uncle Jonathan actually met with a calamity. I was actually about to visit Uncle Jonathan, but I never expected…."
The leader suddenly thought about it, it was understandable, how could the Mace Field Tradings and Western Traders never met before? It was normal for Melissa and Jonathan to be acquaintances.
The leader was about the lead his team away when his eyes suddenly swept towards the guards around the transport ships.
They looked to be in terrible shapes, and did not look like protection for a convoy.
The leader suddenly asked: "These people are?"
Melissa reacted very quickly: "A mercenary group we hired. We did not bring enough guards, and heard it was not safe, so we could only employ them."
The leader's suspicions immediately disappeared.
The Arthur City Tragedy had made many traders escape. It was so sudden, that the organizations would not have enough time to gather manpower, and with the concern of safety, they could only employ mercenaries. ~Seems like Mace Fields Tradings reacted rather slowly, and could only find these ordinary mercenaries to hire.~
Other than the famous large mercenary armies, the majority of the mercenaries were poor and weak. For the sake of living, they would usually hold other jobs, like how many of the mercenaries would be miners as well.
~Those killers also plundered the Western Traders' warehouses, they should be equipped to a standard army, and not as terrible as these people.~
"Please rest assured, we will quickly handle those killers."
The leader puffed out his chest, he had the desire to protect the beautiful Melissa, he was like a proud ox, and patted his chest.
Melissa replied earnestly: "Thank you for your bravery!"
The leader was reluctant to leave, but he did not have anything else to say. Although the Mace Fields Trading was not as powerful as the Western Traders, but it was not a social ladder he could afford to climb on.
Tang Tian watched the army that left without any pause.
When he heard about the information of a man with a bewitching blade, he tacitly hid Ji Ze amongst the crowd. Sima Xiao did not summon Magatama, as a man with high goals for himself, he did not wish to rely on Magatama too much, and trained without holding back.
"You guys were the culprits of the Arthur City Tragedy?"
Melissa's face was pale white, she felt that she had been too foolish, to not even be able to link such a thing. Only such powerful bandits were able to kill Ao Deng and his unit!
"That's right." Tang Tian had his usual expression, then said: "Inform the rest, we are holding up here."
Melissa was confused, ~Why does he want to hold up and rest here all of a sudden?~ Tang Tian did not say anything, he pulled Ji Ze, Fu Zheng Zhi and Sima Xiao to one side.
Melissa did not dare go against his words, and could only return to the convoy. When she arrived, a brazen thought suddenly flashed past her mind, and she was stunned by her own guess.
A bone chilling intent spread through her entire body, causing her to be fixated there.
~Are they going….to…..take down the Ratchet Army….~
Tang Tian spoke softly to the three people: "I've changed my mind, we will make our move tonight and get rid of them. The Null Division doesn't have a warship now, if we were to face off against them, we would be in trouble. We need to get rid of this army first. Sima Xiao, you stay behind and guard this convoy."
As though they were on adrenaline, Ji Ze and Fu Zheng Zhi said in unison with killing intent: "Kill them all!"
They had just left Sin Domain and had not crossed path with any Sacred Saint Galaxy armies, and were extremely curious towards them. Adding that they had broke through with their training, they were even more eager to test themselves out.
Sima Xiao looked at Tang Tian and said: "I have no problems with that."
He saw Tang Tian's stern gaze that flashed with a cold glare, which was unlike the usual noisy and unsophisticated young man, as if they were two different people.
~Only at such a time are you able to show off the majestic and outstanding demeanour as the King of the Ursa Major Constellation.~
Sima Xiao did not forget how Tang Tian stepped onto the throne, which was through battle after battle, victory after victory. What made Sima Xiao startled was that he was actually faintly disappointed, as though…..he was regretful about not participating in the battles to come.
Sima Xiao had always thought that his ability for self control was more outstanding than the rest, but he never expected to be influenced by Tang Tian. But he quickly regained the clarity in his eyes, ~The God Armor Army is as one, if I were to go, I would only affect them, Tang Tian's allocation is right.~
~He is truly the King of the Ursa Major COnstellation!~
Sima Xiao was filled with admiration.
"Get everyone to rest up as much as they can, we will move when it gets dark."
Tang Tian ordered, it was the first rest that the God Armor Army had since the start of training.
Everyone sprawled onto the ground all around, and in a few seconds, snoring could be heard.
On the transport ship, Melissa watched the sight dumbstruck, and thought with self ridicule: "Maybe I thought too much, they are just too tired."
The old man's face remained serious: "No, they are truly about to take action on the Ratchet Army."
"Ah!" Melissa was shocked: "But, from the way they are now…."
"They are just recovering." The old man said, the frowns on his face became even more obvious, but deep in his eyes, a light aura seemed to blossom: "Melissa, in the future, no matter what happens, do not become their enemies."
"Why would I become enemies with them?" Melissa was shocked by her grandfather's words. She had never thought of becoming enemies with the strange bandits, after the past few days, she understood how terrifying they were. But the intent in her grandfather's words also shook her, after hesitating for a moment, she could not resist but ask: "But, they have offended the Western Traders…."
"Western Traders?" The old man shook his head slowly: "They are just but a small portion of this legend."
Melissa was dumbstruck, and even the usually calm Johnson had a look of disbelief. The Western Traders, it was an immensely huge organization, countless of martial artists crawled at its feet, and it was like a monster with endless vines that firmly occupied the Western Region of the Honorable Martial Continent.
Even the Mace Fields Tradings looked up to them.
Melissa had not slept, her mind was constantly going through the words her grandfather had told her in the day. If it were any other person, she would snort and ignore them, but since they were spoken by her grandfather, how could she disregard it.
"Johnson, what do you think?"
Johnson was also equally heavily affected, but his thoughts were much simpler: "Young Miss, do not overthink it, just wait and see. If we are truly able to witness this legend, it is considered our honor."
Melissa was struck, ~That's right, why am I worrying so much about it? I have no relation with these bandits, I can just watch by the side.~
Suddenly, Johnson and her were attracted to the movements close by.
The bandits who were sleeping soundly all stood up. They started to move and prepare quickly. Although Melissa and Johnson did not understand what they were preparing to do, they could tell that they were very disciplined.
Ji Ze swung the Bewitching Blade in his hands, while Fu Zheng Zhi kept moving the position of his Chief Green Swords….
All of them moved very aptly, none revealing any looks of confusion, they were all thorough and precise.
In the entire process, no one spoke, the indescribable sternness pervaded in the night air.
"Are all of you prepared?"
Tang Tian's face did not reveal his usual naive smile, but was strangely serious.
No one spoke, but they all stopped their movements, their eyes sparkling in the night like stars. But the lingering killing intent made them look like wild beasts ready to strike.
In the night, the group of wild beasts laid sprawled to the ground, all revealing ferocious glares.
A person flew into the sky. Tang Tian.
Bang, an extremely low and bassy explosive sound erupted, the 200 men all released their strengths and leapt off the ground at the same time.
Whoosh, all of them disappeared.
In the sky, 200 black shadows rose at a fast speed, like a flock of black eagles soaring into the sky.
There were no commands, no orders, only the sound of them cutting the air, the 200 men gathered as one, and with an extremely fast speed, 200 afterimages streaked through the air.
Suddenly, they disappeared.
In the next moment, they appeared around Tang Tian.
The sudden change in extreme speed and calmness brought upon an intense visual that caused people to hold their breaths.
A small light aura suddenly blossomed amongst the group, like the sun rising out of the ground, the light piercing through the darkness.
Melissa and Johnson were overwhelmed with shock as they stared intently at Tang Tian's fists.
Tang TIan's fists was like the sun, his overbearingness like a God of War once again descended unto the plains.
Melissa, Johnson and the rest were all stunned by the heaven descending fist once again, the terrifying scene of the sun plummeting into the earth made it look like the Apocalypse. The weaker guards were at the moment completely petrified as though they were lost in the light.
The dazzling light aura flashed in the night sky.
The light aura on the fist dimmed down like iron that was heated until red, but the most inconceivable scene occurred. It suddenly became lifelike, and like flowing molten metal, it flowed along Tang Tian's body and stretched out, many streaks of light and darkness intercrossing across his whole body.
Melissa covered her mouth tightly with both hands, afraid to even make the slightest sound, her entire body trembling with fear.
When the liquid metal light aura substance reached Tang Tian's head, it flowed down, and with a speed visible to the naked eye, it quickly covered Tang Tian's face.
In that moment, all they saw was a pair of eyes that gave off the indifference of a God, the extremely intense pressure enveloping the world.
One of the soldier that was trembling from head to toe felt his knees give way, and he knelt down. Many more plops came out, all of their minds were blank, they knelt down on the ground, trembling like sieves. Melissa could only persist so much, and reaching her limit, she fell down on the deck.
Only Johnson and the few other stronger guards were still bitterly resisting the force.
In the dense air of the night, it seemed as though a fiendgod had appeared in front of them.
The air around him seemed to be distorted, as many invisible threads extended out.
Beside Tang Tian, Ji Ze and Fu Zheng Zhi's body suddenly lit up with light auras, following that, the light auras started to spread out.
The 200 men in the sky were like 200 lanterns lighting up one after another.
When the last person lit up with light aura, the God Armor Army in the sky were like stars that condensed together, the overwhelming aura and pressure they gave off extremely substantial. All of their aura seemed to form as one, becoming boundless. It felt as though an ancient beast that was stuck throughout time had walked out, the overwhelming and overbearing aura caused the wind to stop, the moonlight to lose its splendor, the sky to crawl beneath their feets, the stars their wings.
God Armor Awakened, the army had arrived.
