879 Qiu Dao

    Fang Xingjian frowned slightly and said, "What is the Qiu Dao Alliance?" At the next moment, he threw a glance toward the young lady's body with some doubt and suddenly asked, "How old are you this year?"

    "Haha," the young lady smiled bitterly and said, "I'm called Ah Li. I should only be ten this year."

    After the group's explanation with everyone trying to get a word in, Fang Xingjian finally gained some understanding of this world.

    This world was like what he had forecasted previously. It was also one of Earth's parallel worlds.

    In the past, this world had been very close to Earth. Its countries, cultures, and histories all bore a huge resemblance from that of Earth's.

    However, things changed ten years ago.

    Ten years ago, a disaster known as the first onslaught appeared. A myriad of golden light had encompassed the entire planet.

    The golden lights had been like the radiance of the gods. Other than emitting a faint warmth, they had not brought about any other negative feelings.

    Countless religions had announced the light to be the gods' blessings, and many civilians had felt curious toward the golden light. Within three days, countless people had joined as believers of the various religions.

    However, back then, the people did not know that this was just the beginning of a nightmare.

    The golden light disappeared three days later, and things on Earth returned to how they had been originally. The entire society seemed as if it would continue operating as previously planned.

    However, people soon realized that things were not right. Some people's hair turned white overnight, and some children discovered that they had grown over ten centimeters after a night of sleep.

    Many old men and old women died a few days later, while many young men and young women became middle-aged over ten days later and their parents stepped into old age.

    A large number of living creatures had started to die. Be it on the streets, in the forests, on the plains, or deep under the seas... a large number of animal corpses could be found everywhere.

    People discovered to their horror that after the golden light disappeared, it seemed as if time had been adjusted to flow quicker for all living creatures on Earth.

    All living creatures were living at a rate of each day being as if a year had passed. They were witnessing their life flow away.

    Within a mere one month, over two million humans died, the entire Earth seemed to have turned into hell, and the countries' governments were close to breaking down.

    However, heaven would always leave a door open. After over 90% of the population was sacrificed, people discovered the existences of safety zones.

    Throughout the planet, there were some domains of varying sizes where the lifespans of lifeforms would not be affected by the acceleration.

    The appearance and disappearance of such domains were completely randomized. However, humans had still managed to find out some of the regulations through repeated probing.

    Firstly, these domains could sustain for one year or more. The longest one had stayed for five years before disappearing.

    Secondly, in the areas where these domains were located, there was a faint layer of golden glow appearing on the ground.

    Due to these discoveries about the safety zones, humans had managed to survive and were not completely wiped out from the first onslaught. Despite this, their lives were still very arduous.

    Due to a large number of animals dying, it was difficult for humans to obtain food. Furthermore, the existences of the safety zones did not only serve as a form of protection, but they also restricted their movements.

    Fang Xingjian nodded, now understanding the situation a little. However, after some sensing, he realized that he did not seem to be affected by the lifespan acceleration at all. He could not help but think, 'Is it because I came from a parallel world? Or is it due to black magic immunity?

    'Is the golden glow related to the Gold Demonic God?'

    Ever since Fang Xingjian had gotten to know about the evil gods, he quickly understood how powerful the evil gods-or rather, the demonic gods-were.

    Their existences were hard to imagine, their true forms were indescribable, and their powers were endless. It would not be impossible for those demonic gods to have created a natural disaster like this.

    He suddenly asked, "Why is this called the first onslaught? Since this is the first time, then will there be a second? A third? Who said this?"

    The young lady by the name of Ah Li appeared lost. She shook her head and said, "I have no idea either. This was what other people told me."

    "Then what influences are there in this world? Where are you guys planning to head to?" Seeing how anxious they were, Fang Xingjian finally understood that this Earth was different from the one he came from.

    On this planet, as long as one was not in the safety zone, their time would be extremely precious. It was no wonder that they felt anxious when he stopped them here and had a long chat with them.

    In fact, if it was not because Fang Xingjian's sudden appearance and his act of lifting up the minibus in midair were too astonishing, this group would have ignored him a long time ago.

    With a turn of his palm, the minibus landed once again.

    Fang Xingjian said, "Let's talk as we move on."

    Ah Li revealed a relieved expression. "Thank you. We're heading for the Litian City. It's a very big safety zone and is within the Qiu Dao Alliance's influence. They have very strict defenses."

    "Oh? What kind of organization is this Qiu Dao Alliance?"

    Through their descriptions, the Qiu Dao Alliance's outline slowly formed in front of Fang Xingjian.

    This was an influence that had been founded by a man called Qiu Dao. According to Ah Li, this person called Qiu Dao seemed to have the remarkable powers to overturn rivers and seas as well as to uproot mountains. He created a city single-handedly and resolved food and weather issues, as well as other survival issues. This was the first city of the Qiu Dao Alliance.

    Under Qiu Dao, there were six men and women called the Six Heavenly Generals. All of them could take on a country single-handedly and were people with remarkable abilities.

    Ah Li said proudly, "The Six Heavenly Generals all possess high destructive powers and are able to wipe out a country single-handedly. They are almost invincible in this world."

    Fang Xingjian smiled and said, "They might be able to wipe out a country, but they might not necessarily be invincible."

    He sort of came up with a conclusion to the identities of the Qiu Dao Alliance and the Six Heavenly Generals.

    Hearing Fang Xingjian's words, Ah Li acted as if her idols had been humiliated. She let out a cold snort and said, "I can see that you've learned some martial arts as well, but don't think that you'll be able to compare to the Six Heavenly Generals just because you've learned some tricks. Any one of them is over 100 or 1,000 times stronger than you are."

    Fang Xingjian smiled and could not be bothered to rebuke her. Instead, he continued to inquire about the situation in this world.

    Based on their descriptions, they were currently at the place where the Xin Country was located on the Earth that Fang Xingjian came from. Almost all the territories were controlled by the Qiu Dao Alliance. This organization centered around the seven cities where the Six Heavenly Generals and Qiu Dao were located, building a massive country in East Asia.

    Over 100 safety zones of varying sizes had all been taken over by them.

    They built schools and hospitals, and they also set up military troops in these domains. Additionally, they even started to impart martial arts to the people, becoming the absolute rulers of these regions.
