880 Safety Zone

    The safety zone-which the young lady, Ah Li, and the other middle-aged men and women had been at previously-was also a part of the Qiu Dao Alliance's territory.

    However, a bug influx had suddenly emerged, crushing the safety zone's defense. Thus, they were forced to escape and head for Litian City.

    At the mention of the bug influx, Ah Li seemed horrified. "Due to the first onslaught, most of the animals outside the safety zone became extinct. Amongst those that survived, only some are reared within the safety zone. The others are those that have become accustomed to a new estrous cycle and are able to reproduce at a faster rate.

    "However, bugs are able to reproduce incessantly at all times. Moreover, with their accelerated lifespans, their growth rate sped up and their rate of reproduction also increased tremendously, forming a terrifying bug influx."

    Fang Xingjian nodded. He had now gained quite a good understanding of the situation in East Asia. When he continued to ask about the situations in other areas, Ah Li's expression seemed blank as she did not know much about those areas.

    In fact, given her status, what she said were only the things that the Qiu Dao Alliance had been releasing to the public over the years. The true state of the entire world might actually be different from what she knew.

    This world's historical development allowed Fang Xingjian to detect many unique senses.

    The first thing was the first onslaught situation. It allowed him to gain a deeper understanding of natural disasters. The experts in Miracle World had said before that the onslaughts were a type of phenomenon which was hard to describe. They only knew that the source of the onslaughts was likely to come from the 12 demonic gods, but the phenomena itself was hard to understand or stop.

    The invasions of some special life forms were the easiest to understand. However, the situation where lifespans were being accelerated was something which could only be accepted passively.

    Additionally, there was also the existence of that Qiu Dao Alliance.

    'I'll still have to take a look at this Qiu Dao Alliance to see if it's what I think it is.'

    At the thought of this, Fang Xingjian turned to look at the group and said, "Which direction is the Litian City you speak of?"

    "The northwest," a middle-aged man wearing black-rimmed glasses said. "Do you want to come along with us? It's only within the safety zones that the flow of our lifespans can return to normal. Otherwise, no matter how strong you are, you won't be able to survive for long in the wilderness."

    Fang Xingjian smiled and did not say a word. He raised his hand. Then with a slight tremor, the minibus flew up and toward the northwest. Everyone gasped.

    Right now, they looked at Fang Xingjian with a totally different gaze. An ordinary cultivator would not be able to lift up an entire minibus and get it to fly.

    They had not even heard of any other humans who could do something like this with the exception of the Heavenly Generals.

    With Fang Xingjian using his martial will to propel the minibus to fly, their speed was naturally not slow. Under the directions of the group, they arrived outside Litian City within a few minutes.

    The minibus floated several hundred meters in the sky, and the group leaned against the windows, looking at the huge city that was several kilometers away. All of them were pleasantly surprised.

    "We've arrived, we've arrived."

    "It's over there!"

    "There are so many people!"

    A short moment later, with a slight tremor, Fang Xingjian landed the minibus onto the ground. The group raised their heads to look at him, but Fang Xingjian was nowhere to be seen.

    Right now, Fang Xingjian was already walking along the streets of Litian City. With his current cultivation, as long as he was unwilling to, it was impossible for ordinary people to detect his presence.

    He continued to walk along the streets like there was no one else there. The crowd around him seemed as if they did not see him, and there were even some people who walked through Fang Xingjian's body. It was as if Fang Xingjian did not exist at all.

    This Litian City was about one-quarter the size of Demonic City. All the buildings and streets were built in the same way and looked almost identical. Although the people along the streets appeared a little thin and weak, they were brimming with energy and there were no signs of frailness in their gazes.

    Aside from these things, Fang Xingjian was more concerned about the martial school in the city. Fang Xingjian entered the martial school and saw a few young men cultivating. A hint of understanding flashed in his eyes.

    These cultivators really possessed ether particles in their bodies.

    From the moment Fang Xingjian arrived on this Earth, he had already discovered that this world was also filled with ether particles. However, he had not detected any ether particles presence in Ah Li and the group.

    It seemed that this world's past was a little different from how he imagined it to be. Extraordinary strength was uncommon, and it was likely that most of the people did not possess the Knight system.

    Only these people who cultivated martial arts were able to slowly absorb ether particles and develop the Knight system.

    Just as Fang Xingjian was thinking about these, a voice suddenly entered his mind.

    "Friend, since you've come, aren't you going to say hi?"

    Fang Xingjian turned his head slightly and discovered that a young man, who wore a robe and had long red hair, had appeared before him. However, Fang Xingjian was not too surprised by the young man's appearance.

    After all, he had not made a deliberate attempt to conceal himself and was merely walking through spatial gaps. Ordinary people might not be able to detect him, but he would stand out a lot to people who were strong enough.

    Fang Xingjian scanned the young man's body with his martial will, and a hint of understanding flashed in his heart. 'As expected... He's a Divine level expert?'

    When Fang Xingjian first heard of the Qiu Dao Alliance, the Alliance Chief Qiu Dao, and the Six Heavenly Generals under him, Fang Xingjian had already guessed that the other parties had already reached the Divine level.

    By the looks of it, they were not just ordinary Divine level experts. In fact, they had already completed their conjured physiques and were existences who were at least tier three of the Divine level or higher.

    When the red-haired young man saw Fang Xingjian's curious gaze, he said, "You also came from another parallel world, right?" The red-haired young man let out a bitter laugh and said, "We did too."

    A hint of surprise flashed in Fang Xingjian's eyes as he asked, "The Nine-Tiered Heavens?"

    "The Nine-Tiered Heavens, Gates of Heaven, Nine-Level Thunder Tribulation, or whatever else you may call it. All of us came from a similar place and arrived in this world in the midst of clearing a trial," the red-haired young man said. Then he let out a bitter laugh and added, "But you're really unlucky to have come to this world."

    Fang Xingjian asked curiously, "Oh? Could it be that the Six Heavenly Generals and the Alliance Chief all came from other parallel worlds?"

    "That's right. Lord Qiu Dao was the first amongst us to arrive in this world. It's a pity that since his time, we have yet to complete our mission and clear this trial even after such a long time. Instead, more and more tier four Divine level experts have been sent to this world."

    The red-haired young man shook his head, looked at Fang Xingjian, and said, "Thankfully, you met me. I came last year. The difference in our strengths shouldn't be that great, and we're able to communicate better.

    "The few who came earlier have deep and unfathomable strength and aren't that easy to talk to. If you encounter them, they might take the opportunity to teach you a lesson and establish their standing."
