“Alright then. If you are contented, one will promise to take good care of the egg,” Jiang Fei exclaimed, humbly.
“Thank you, Master Zhuge. If I am reborn successfully, I shall remember this deed and promise to repay your kindness,” said Beowulf, bowing as he did. To be honest, Beowulf was not all too convinced about Zhuge Shanzhen but he was the best candidate amongst the other Level 5 Metahuman.
It goes without saying that all Metahumans wanted the power of Level 5. If there was one that would not be swayed by the temptation of the egg, it would be Zhuge Shanzhen whos rumored to have many Level 5 disciples. Even so! Who’s to say that all Zhuge Shanzhen’s disciple had reached Level 5? Beowulf could not be sure if Zhuge Shanzhen would break his promise with him and feed the egg to one of his other disciples!
“Who long would this process take?” Jiang Fei asked. If Beowulf had only a few days left to live, Jiang Fei would be greatly troubled since he could not be standing beside him until he… lays the egg!
“It will only take a second. Please wait,” said Beowulf. He took a few “air” steps back, creating distance between he and Jiang Fei before releasing a powerful surge of energy.
Being only Level 4, the powerful blast of Level 5 energy immediately disables Jiang Fei. Thankfully, Isabella was able to intercept that blast and help Jiang Fei to get back on his feet, preventing Jiang Fei from breaking his character.
There was a concept of power. The Conqueror’s Power. One must need to awaken the Power of Conqueror from within in order to reach true Level 5. Isabella had that but not Beowulf nor Ariel. Hence, even though Beowulf was unleashing all the power that was within him, Isabella did not flinch.
Under Isabella’s protection, Jiang Fei could feel the berserking energy circling and swimming around inside Beowulf. At the same time, his life force was being concentrated inside his chest.
Two minutes later, Jiang Fei could see Beowulf’s body decomposing as if it was turning into dust. The skin on the bald man was withering away as if time was forcefully pushed through time.
With a loud groan, Beowulf vomited out an egg. It looked exactly like a regular AA sized chicken egg! That was his Rebirth Egg.
“Ewww! F*ck! If it was not preventing disaster, I would never touch that thing!” Jiang Fei thought whilst keeping a poker face.
To be honest, the egg was emitting a powerful fragrance that was pleasing. At the same time, there was a powerful energy that was being released from the egg. It was hard to explain. It was as if there was something that was luring him to the egg. A very peculiar scent. Not too strong but strong enough to spread far, far away. It was akin to a broadcast signal to let everyone in the world to know about the egg and tempt them to eat it!
As soon as the egg was out, Jiang Fei could feel many powerful surges of energy that was coming in from elsewhere. Without even needing to ask, Jiang Fei knew that those surges of energy belonged to other nearby Level 5 Metahumans.
It was uncanny. They were floating right in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean yet the energy that the egg was giving off could spread out to cover almost half of the entire planet. It would not be odd to think that someone else had already picked up the scent.
“Sheesh! No wonder he wanted me to take care of it! This thing is literally a beacon!” Jiang Fei thought whilst sighing heavily.
“Master Zhuge, my life is in your hands now…” said Beowulf before bowing one last time. Jiang Fei could sense the life force in Beowulf was reaching its absolute limit.
“We will meet again in seven days!” said Jiang Fei.
“Indeed. If all goes well… Farewell, and take care.”
Those were the last words of Beowulf before his body crumbles into dust.
“Captain. I am detected many Superior Being coming towards our location!” 0542 warned Jiang Fei.
“Darling! There are three of them!” Isabella whispered.
“What a blunder…” Jiang Fei sighed. Those three Level 5 Metahumans were most certainly been attracted by the egg. If he tried to run, he would only be stirring more trouble to his way. In that situation, it was better to continue playing Zhuge Shanzhen until everything was over.
“My friends from afar, please show yourselves!” cried Jiang Fei. With a flip of his hands, the Rebirth Egg vanished from existence and into the ring’s inventory. As soon as it did, the powerful energy that the egg was emitting vanished with it. However, the three Level 5 Metahumans that were drawn by the egg appeared.
“Hahahaha! The treasure is gone before one could even see it! How does master do it?”
Unexpectedly, one out of the three Level 5 Metahuman was from China! The egg’s attraction was so strong that it managed to even attract the attention of a Level 5 Metahuman that was famed for not wanting to do anything with the outside world.
“Good day to you all. Hello, Qin. It’s been a while,” said another Level 5 Metahuman. He was wearing a golden-plated armor and was rather familiar with the Chinese Level 5 Metahuman.
“Mordred, it is nice to see you here. I’d be honest, I would never expect to see you here,” said another Level 5 Mutant that appeared with a thunderclap.
“Lockwood, surely you would not be drawn in by that canine sense of smell?” said the golden-armored Mordred. After greeting one another, all three Level 5 Metahuman turned to Jiang Fei, which prompted Jiang Fei to quickly introduce himself.
“Peace be all of us. This one is called Zhuge Shanzhen. To what do this one owe the pleasure?” said Jiang Fei, slowly and calmly.
“I beg your pardon?”
“You are the mysterious Zhuge Shanzhen?”
All three of them were stunned. They came here to take the egg, no matter who they were going to fight with, even when they saw Jiang Fei and Isabella, they would not give up the egg without a fight. However, when Jiang Fei introduced himself as Zhuge Shanzhen, all three of them was thrown off guard.
Level 5 was an existence that was almost akin to godhood. As such, one would surely be prideful to not mingle with the common folk. Even so, many would still be open to the news that was spreading amongst the other humans. The name Zhuge Shanzhen was the heated topic that even Level 5 Metahumans would be interested to hear. Rumors after rumors, the person known as Zhuge Shanzhen was talked up to the point where he was said to be more than any regular Level 5 Metahuman. Some had even said the man had already surpassed Level 5 and into the unknown realms of Level 6!
All three of them exchange a worried look. When everyone was thinking about what they should do, Lockwood quietly send out a small wave of energy towards Jiang Fei. He wanted to know who was Jiang Fei.
Fortunately, Jiang Fei came prepared. Before Beowulf could even talk to him, Jiang Fei had already asked 0542 to use whatever energy left it have to cover his aura. He had even have 0542 to create a force field around Jiang Fei that could absorb all incoming energy that was meant to pry Jiang Fei’s being. From the perspective of anyone else beside Jiang Fei, Jiang Fei would be seen like a blackhole; constantly absorbing all energy at an alarming rate!
