Chapter 2638: Siege (3)
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When the aliens from the Blue Fox Planet had invaded the Starry Crescent Land, everyone started to use the spell to communicate with each other. However, over the past month, the Blue Fox soldiers were able to construct a device that could intercept the contents of their direct audio. Therefore, using the spell to communicate was basically the equivalent of leaking information to the enemy!
After Mu Feng and his people suffered a few losses, they knew that something had come up and ordered the destruction of all the spells, which consequently broke the connection between them and anyone outside of the Starry Crescent Land. So, even after Gu Xijiu returned and created havoc for the enemy, Mu Feng and the people in Tianju Hall were unaware of her presence.
However, it was safe to say that they were not completely ignorant. It became apparent to them that the number of battleships that surrounded Tianju Hall seemed to suddenly have reduced by more than half as if they had received some instructions to support a different location.
The moon was bright, and the stars were sparse. Everyone had been hungry for another whole day. They were generally very sleepy and exhausted due to the lack of food and nutrition. Needless to say, hope had come and gone for them.
Mu Feng and the other three messengers stood on a high platform and were ready to encourage everyone again as they have been doing ritually. But this time, what Mu Feng was about to say was going to be slightly different. “I think that the Lord is back this time. Did any of you notice that there were significantly fewer battleships outside Tianju Hall today? Everyone, please bear with us and persist for another day. I think that the Lord will be here by tomorrow.”
“Yes, the Lord will not abandon us. She has likely been fighting outside Tianju Hall against these people.” Mu Yun echoed.
“Hahaha. Mu Feng, can you stop wasting your breath? If the Lord were going to help us, she would have been here a long time ago! Why would she have us wait until we are desperate?” Finally, someone dared to voice their true opinion.
“I agree! Perhaps the metal monsters left because they wanted to go home and rest! Either that or maybe they are going to study how to break through our wizardry barrier here. Haven’t you noticed that our wizardry barrier is getting weaker by the day?”
“Yes, at first, they couldn’t even shake the wizardry barrier, but now, they are getting more and more powerful! There is even a crack in the barrier.”
“The crack has been repaired.” Mu Feng was quick to point that out.
“Messenger Mu Feng, it’s not that we don’t trust you. This wizardry barrier is a blessing given to us by the two Lords, so it is strong. But can you be sure that the repairs you did have made the barrier as strong as before?”
Mu Feng looked down at his feet upon hearing the last reply. Indeed, he could not be certain. Although the wizardry barrier around Tianju Hall was powerful, after four months of persistent attacks from those armored iron machines, there were signs of damage around the barrier of late, and perhaps it really would not be able to last too much longer!
The outsiders only looted ordinary people, but they still let live since they were no threat to their operation. However, they were killing people with high spiritual power without any mercy! These people who hid in Tianju Hall were all of high spiritual power, and there was only one thing in store for their future was the barrier is shattered.
“Since we are going to die sooner or later, why are we getting starving here and waiting to die? Why don’t we just rush out and fight together!?”
“Yeah, I would rather die on the battlefield than starve to death!”
“Let’s fight with those bastards! It is better than dying in here without even contributing anything to the Starry Crescent Land! Even if we only destroy two warplanes, we would have already done more than just sit here and wait to die!”
It was clear that the people here had accumulated a lot of negative energy from all their anxiety and hard times. They needed a form of release, and since some people in the group had suggested a fight, the rest seemed to have agreed and wanted to do the same. They had been cooped up for so long in here and just wanted to leave.
Mu Feng calmly responded, “If we had a chance to win, do you think I wouldn’t want to fight?! Have you forgotten what had happened just one month ago?”
Everyone remained silent after that reminder.
A month ago, someone in Tianju Hall could no longer stand living this kind of trapped life and wanted to go out and get some food. After a few repeated requests, Mu Feng finally agreed to let Yan Chen lead a few people with spiritual powers above level eight to exit the barrier quietly.
