I Really Am Not The Lord of Demon - Chapter 76
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Sitting at the counter, Ling Pingan casually turned on the television.
It was time for the 10:30 am news.
“This is the latest news received by our station…” the pretty news reporter, read the press release according to the script. “The Kingdom of Fran’s Ministry of Internal Affairs released a news report saying that at 4:00 a.m. local time today, the Ministry of Internal Affairs raided the base of an illegal gang organization and successfully rescued dozens of hostages that were kidnapped and held hostage by that organization…”
On the news screen, the pixelated individual footage of the rescued hostages was shown on the screen.
“It is reported that this illegal gang is called “the Order of the Temple”!”
“This gang has been active in Fran, Billy, Bavaria, and the countries along the Rhine River for a long time…”
“It has been classified as an illegal organization by more than ten countries and has been wanted by those countries…”
“The spokesperson of the Kingdom of Fran’s Ministry of Internal Affairs said that this operation is an example of successful cooperation between the Kingdom of Fran and the countries of the Land of Qin!”
“It is part of an international joint effort to combat illegal criminal activities!”
While eating breakfast, Ling Pingan watched the news footage of those poor people who were as thin as firewood or dressed in ragged clothes.
He let out a light sigh and felt a little sympathy for them.
He then decided to respond to the calls of the Federal Empire’s Department of Environment and Nature Conservation.
To carry out a one-day “Clear Your Plate” campaign.
To contribute to the world peace.
So, he lowered his head and ate up all the steamed dumplings and tofu pudding in front of him.
On the big screen, a satellite image of the Malin Kingdom on the east coast of Kunlun Province, tens of thousands of miles away was shown.
Malin was a small country.
Its area was hundreds of thousands of square kilometers, and its population was only a few million.
It was a typical agricultural country.
But it was a country with a long history.
The Malin Kingdon had already existed about one thousand years ago.
Hundreds of years ago, Zheng He went to the Western Ocean and sailed to Malin.
The King of Malin offered the Kylin to the Emperor of the Ming Dynasty.
That was the beginning of the friendship between the citizens of Malin and the citizens of the Federal.
However, in the modern era, with the invasion of the power of the land of Qin, the Malin Kingdom was destroyed.
On the eve of its destruction, the last king of the Malin Kingdom recalled the experiences of his ancestors in the east.
Hence, he decided to give it a try and ordered his trusted aides to send his only son to the east.
Everything that happened afterward proved that this was the best choice that the king had made in his life.
When the prince arrived in the east, it was the end of the era of titulary.
The last sovereign of the Federal Empire, Gao Zong, was in power.
Gao Zong was generous and ambitious.
After welcoming the Prince of Malin and learning about the actions of the land of Qin colonizing Malin, he only said seven words: If this can be tolerated, what cannot!
Hence, he ordered Admiral Gao Lin to lead the fleet and the marine corps to escort the Prince of Malin back to his country and help the prince rebuild his country.
This was in line with the traditions and values of the Federal Empire since ancient times.
Rise and fall of a country, succession, survival, and death!
It was also a display of benevolence and righteousness!
It was different from the nature of the strong preying on the weak in the land of Qin.
Since ancient times, the Federal Empire did not have much interest in the invasion and expansion.
Benevolence and righteousness were the main themes that were carried out from beginning to end.
Ancient thinkers said that only by practicing benevolence and righteousness could unite all countries.
Although modern thinkers abandoned the narrow world view of ancient times.
They advocated that all nations, big or small, strong, or weak were equal, and respected each other as one.
But the core of benevolence and righteousness remained unchanged.
Do not impose on others what you do not desire!
Once the Federal Empire, which had suffered greatly from foreign invasion and slaughter, rose from the ruins, the first thing it opposed was invasion and slaughter!
At the very least, that was what the textbooks said, and that was what the teachers in the school had taught them.
Hence, from then until today, the Malin Kingdom had always been the closest friend of the Federal Empire in the East Kunlun Region, a twenty-four-seven strategic partner.
The Malin’s Naval Base was the symbol and representative of the friendship between the two peoples.
It was based on the agreement on the Treaty between the Federal Empire of Xia and the Malin Kingdom. At the invitation of the King of Malin and the people, they were stationed in the Malin region to carry out various tasks such as assistance, escort, and other missions. They were also tasked to provide humanitarian assistance and emergency aid to the various countries in the Kunlun region.
The satellite showed that two big red dots were approaching at high speed outside the Marlin Naval Base.
The spiritual energy warning device inside the naval base was crazily alarming.
“Huge psionic power reaction detected!”
“Leader of the Order of the Temple, Headless Duke Hill!”
“Speaker of the Dark Council, William the Werewolf Duke!”
Looking at the warning messages, Situ He turned to Zhang Hui. “What should we do?”
Zhang Hui pressed his earpiece and asked, “how long will it take for the Space-based Weapon System above Malin to launch?”
“Reporting, the Rail bomb needs at least three hours to recharge!”
“The Xuanyuan sword system needs at least two hours to be ready for launch!”
Hearing the voice from the Space-based Weapon System Command Center, Zhang Hui remained silent.
After hesitating for a moment, he finally made up his mind.
He said to Situ He, “order all the soldiers of the Malin Naval Base to enter the battlefield immediately!”
“Order them to delay the enemy at all costs!”
“We must buy enough time for the women, children, and the old and the weak to evacuate!”
In fact, this was equivalent to sending the soldiers stationed at the Malin Naval Base to their deaths!
The enemy was two of the seven greatest of the Dark World of the land of Qin.
Not even either one of them could be stopped by the soldiers with mere mortal bodies.
Let alone two?
And the Kunlun region had never been the focus of the Federal Empire.
The defense of that region was weak.
In the Malin Naval Base, there was only a squadron consisting of a destroyer, four frigates, and more than ten speedboats.
The most powerful weapon was the cruise missile on the guided-missile destroyer.
This type of missile was extremely effective against mortal targets on the ground.
However, against two monsters with the strength of at least a lieutenant-general of the Blackguards, it was obviously not enough.
The Federal Empire had once conducted a test.
In order to defeat a Lieutenant General head-on, one would need to gather the firepower of a large fleet or mobilize an entire mechanized army.
The world of extraordinary humans was merely unreasonable.
Only extraordinary beings of the same level could deal with extraordinary beings.
This was a painful lesson learned from countless wars over the past 200 years since the recovery of psionic power!
Of course, in the past few decades, with the entry into the investment on strategic weapons and the development of space-based weapons.
Humans finally had the means and ability to kill those powerful extraordinary beings.
But the problem was…
Who would dare to use hydrogen bombs as they wish?
And who could casually use space-based weapons?
These weapons of mass destruction were only a deterrent, a trump card.
But the effect would not be that good either on those who had already set their mind and were willing to risk their lives to fight.
After all, he was alone.
On your side, there were hundreds of thousands or even millions.
Trading lives for him?
Only a fool would do that!
Not to mention, there were no trump cards that could be used now!
Therefore, Zhang Hui had no other choice.
He could only make this decision!
He had the soldiers to cover the civilians, women, and children as they evacuated.
That was their mission, and it was also their natural duty!
However, he couldn’t help but feel a little resentful.
“It was not caused by us…” he sighed.
Just a moment ago, the Kingdom of Fran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs had sent a protest, protesting against the experts of the Federal Empire for forcefully barging into their country’s borders.
This was naturally telling everyone else that this had nothing to do with them! Every injustice has its perpetrator and every debt has its debtor! We, Frans, did not participate in this!
This was the result of the interference of the powerful!
Even the Frans thought so.
The others would naturally get the meaning of it.
After all, in this world, only the Federal Empire possessed such an ability.
Uprooting a dark underground organization of at least twelve major generals and at least dozens of colonel-level beings.
At the same time, none of them managed to escape!
Even if he, Zhang Hui, take his initiative to explain, those two fellows would not believe him.
Not to mention that he had no way of explaining himself, so he could only bear the responsibility.
Just as Zhang Hui was sighing…
A new signal appeared on the big screen in front of him.
“Powerful psionic power detected!”
“Super powerful psionic power approaching!”
“Distance: 300 kilometers!”
“Continuing to approach…”
“Warning! Warning! Psionic power increased! Psionic power increased!”
A huge red dot appeared on the satellite map.
Zhang Hui and Situ He raised their heads.
The two of them gulped at the same time.
That was because at the southeast of the Marlin Naval Base was the sea.
The boundless Indian Sea!
And the psionic guard station’s data showed that the psionic concentration of the psionic target that was rapidly approaching from the Indian Sea was still rising.
The index was soaring!
“A super expert at least the level of an admiral!” Zhang Hui and Situ He looked at each other and then gulped again.
There were billions of people and tens of millions of foreign species in the entire world.
There were only a few hundred who exceeds the level of a general in total.
Among them, there were only a handful of super experts at the Admiral Level.
And there was only one person who surpassed the Admiral Level.
The commander-in-chief of the Blackguard of the Federation Empire!
And now, a super expert at least at the level of an Admiral was rapidly approaching the Malin’s Naval Base.
Who was he?
Was he an enemy or a friend?!
No one knew.
That was because the data in the database showed that there was no matching data of this person’s psionic data.
There was also no record of similar psionic characteristics.
“A hidden super expert?” Zhang Hui muttered to himself as he looked at the data that was constantly transmitted back from the satellites and radars.
Unfortunately, the satellites and radars could only detect data and could not send a clear image of the target.
If he wanted to see the target, he would have to wait until he entered the cameras of the Malin’s Naval Base.
However, the problem was that by then, everything would be too late!
What should he do?
Zhang Hui and Situ He looked at each other.
They were clear that the Malin’s Naval Base was about to encounter an unpredictable catastrophe.
Even the entire Malin Kingdom might not be able to escape.
An expert at least at the level of an Admiral.
Along with a Headless Duke who was at least the level of a lieutenant general and a Werewolf Duke who had the strength of a Quasi-Admiral level.
If they joined forces, they would perhaps even dare to charge forward to the capital!
Let alone a mere overseas base with a weak defense, and just a few tattered battleships?
