Chapter 2630 – The Blue Fox Family
Guan Yaning was almost ready to vomit blood from the sight of what he had just done. His loyal subordinate had perished along with another warplane! He finally understood how Gu Xijiu was able to do everything that she did. She clearly must possess the ability to teleport at will. She must have made her way into the unprotected warplane and caught his fellow comrade off guard. Understanding her intentions, she naturally steered the warplane towards him.
Fortunately for the admiral, his response was swift. If the man had not sacrificed his subordinates, perhaps that would have spelled the end for the parties on both ships. At this point, he could not help but wonder if he managed to take down the ghost-like Lord with his perished companions.
Nevertheless, this optimistic idea was quickly crushed by a hit of reality! Another neighboring warplane seemed to have lost control as well. The admiral did not need to guess where its next destination would be.
Since the ship was not very far away and it traveled hundreds of times faster than supersonic, it only took a blink of an eye for the ship to rush over and crash into the admiral’s ship. There was no time for Guan Yaning to take control of it. Therefore, he had to fire at it again and disintegrate his own warship into dust.
The admiral was now even more distressed than before. This type of ship was certainly very costly, and he had taken out two of them in quick succession. Once a ship was destroyed, it meant that this firepower available here was also reduced. The only way to assemble more warplanes was for the admiral to return to his original planet and timeframe to retrieve one. Should the current predicament continue, it was only a matter of time before Guan Yaning became a commander with no subordinates.
He figured that this Lord must secretly be a devil or a demon who had ill intentions for the world, but now was not the time for him to get fixated over that. He needed to sort out this mess and prevent another one of his warplanes from going down.
Quickly, Guan Yaning made up his mind and ordered his subordinates to destroy the operating systems of their ships so that he could manually take over. He then remotely controlled the other warplanes in batches and promptly evacuated them.
Despite being evacuated, the people on board the ships were noticeably still worried. Other than the main ship operated by the admiral, the other warplanes did not have the same protection and would be prone to takeover from the Lord. No one knew her current location, which made them tremble even more.
The subordinates on the other ships immediately put on something similar to a night vision goggle, which was a thousand times more accurate than the ordinary night vision devices available during the time period in the Starry Crescent Land. As long as Gu Xijiu had heat radiating from her body, there was no way that she could hide even with her invisibility spell.
Nonetheless, the naturally Lord seemed to understand how these goggles functioned. Using her abilities, she could manually control her heat signature so that she would be able to move under the radar and remain untraceable. The men looked like fools with their eyewear.
Even with their modern gear, they were not foolish enough to stray away from keeping vigilant. They made sure to keep an eye on their surroundings all the way until their ship reached the main station. Everyone was relieved at that point, as they felt that they had escaped death! It seemed that the devil was finally gone!
Guan Yaning was physically puking out blood once his ship came to a stop. Eight of his warplanes, along with nearly 50 of his loyal soldiers, had been taken down. They were all gone.
When he got off the ship, he could barely keep himself together. However, that did not stop a soldier from running over to him. “General, the King of Blue Fox family wants to see you.”
Guan Yaning was utterly miserable, and he had a feeling that things would be about to get worse. “What does he want? Tell him that I am exhausted. I am not going!”
“The king said that he knows about the Lord.”
Guan Yaning paused and finally turned around. “Where is he? Take me to him!”
He followed the soldier and strode forth angrily. Little did he know that Gu Xijiu was tailing him all the way. Understanding ourselves and knowing our enemy can only increase our chances of winning a battle. She still knew too little about this group of people, and the best way to learn more was to explore their nest.
After surveying the place briefly, an impulse hit her. She had been here before! This was the territory of the Blue Fox clan! Had these aliens conquered them? What about the King of Blue Fox family? What about the people? Had they been killed?
