Reincarnator - Chapter 389
Reincarnator - Chapter 389: Flameless Land (3)
'It's been a while, but... it's really a sight . '
Hansoo continued to look around as he headed inwards .
At all the broken down Dragon God Armor .
At all the starships destroyed from the result of a hasty landing .
'It seems they really escaped in a hurry . '
The Reyunion's weapons .
Hansoo looked at the ships that had crashed due to the lack of the Flame's strength .
He'd never thought of going against the Flame in the past, so he had never cared about it, but he knew now .
As to how powerful the Flame's strength was .
A strength that was strong enough to go against the Transcendents who'd crossed the wall .
And that was still a small fraction in comparison to the true strength of the Flame sleeping inside the planet .
But inside this area, all of that strength was forbidden .
Because of the existence of the External Flame divine Tool .
At first, no one knew who had created this tool .
There were no traces of the creator .
But Hansoo knew after going back into the past .
As to who'd shoved that Flame into this planet .
And who'd hidden the tool to control the Flame in this land .
' . . . Nerpa . '
The Nelkipa that orbited Angkara and that existence hidden inside the Nelkipa .
Hansoo could deduce many things looking at the Nerpa who'd gone off to Angkara the moment it woke up .
Of course, this didn't answer every question .
'Why is he coming here, though?'
Hansoo thought of the Kalkuroun Fleet that should be slowly approaching this place .
Inside the giant starship .
R-Koronaita Nell was dumbfounded as he listened to N-Aroel's words .
’’You... you gave us the Flame?’’
R-Koronaita Nell shouted out in rage .
’’Don't lie! What kind of words are those?!’’
Although they gave it the simple name of <Flame>.
It was not just a simple ball of flame .
The small sun that was sleeping inside the planet .
The <Flame>, hidden inside the shell of this planet, was something to be revered and feared .
Everybody could see the red sun of their planet through the <Valley of Retribution>between the continents .
It was the source of life for their planet, which had once been doomed to freeze to death after their previous sun had died out .
Giving their race the power to control the fleet and travel through the universe .
They only called it a <Flame>, but in reality, it was more like a sun .
N-Aroel, the Nerpa, chuckled .
’’Yeah? Then is it logical for a sun to stay trapped within a tiny planet? To release that kind of energy without control, you guys clearly know that it should've long since reduced your entire planet into a blazing ball of flames . ’’
’’ . . . Ugh . ’’
R-Koronaita Nell fell silent .
Those words were correct .
That was a question that no researcher on Angkara could answer .
A ball of energy trapped within their planet that should've been tens of thousands of times larger than what it appeared .
Maintaining a very calm state that wasn't causing any harm to their planet that surrounded it like a thin shell .
Very illogical indeed .
The Nerpa chuckled towards Angkara that had now appeared before his eyes .
'I didn't know this would happen . '
The <Blazing Jade>that the Nerpa had bestowed upon them thousands of years ago .
They had stepped out and bestowed the <Flame>to a planet that was about to freeze due to the death of their sun .
Although it wasn't as big as the original sun, the Nerpa had dug out the insides of that giant planet which was already many times larger than a normal planet and placed the <Blazing Jade>inside it .
When his race had been in their prime, something like that wasn't difficult nor was it a problem .
But not anymore .
The simple gift that they had given away was now his only hope .
A flame that they had given to save the dying dying race .
The beings of this planet didn't have the right to complain if he were to take it away .
'It's a bit childish to give something and then take it back, but what else can I do... Anyway, where do I even start?'
The Nerpa frowned .
A chaotic planet .
The only toy he had was a fleet, which had a few ships he couldn't even use anymore their engines had overloaded when he destroyed the crystal .
Although this was more than enough to destroy countless cities and shake an entire nation, that was not enough to go against his enemies .
According to N-Aroel's memories, his enemies had built their entire civilization from the <Flame>.
They would struggle with every last ounce of their strength to not lose the Flame, which meant that he would have to go against the entire planet .
'It would've been easier if I had the Nelkipa... tsk . '
He missed his stolen body and Nelkipa at this point .
With the Nelkipa, he could easily erase their entire civilization within a day and take over Angkara .
At least he had stopped Melchizedek and the aliens from taking it over .
'The fastest way to control the Flame is acquiring the controller . '
If he could take the three controllers spread around the planet, then he would be able to control the Flame as a whole .
Game over .
Although he didn't have his blue armor or his powerful body, the power to control the Flame was embedded deep inside his soul .
He would gain the chance to stand up again .
'It seems our savior has failed... I must at least try to save our fallen race . '
The Nerpa thought back to the man who'd left with a heavy burden on his shoulders .
While the Nerpa was heading towards Angkara .
Hansoo was also heading towards his destination .
Hansoo smacked away another Abyssal monster and then chuckled at the aura he could feel around him .
'What to do...'
He couldn't see them because they were so far away, but he could he could clearly feel them .
The people who were watching him from the distance .
Despite seeing his group for the first time and to still maintain their distance like that, it meant that they knew about Transcendents and how strong they were .
'They're used to Transcendents . '
He could also deduce another thing .
That the Transcendents inside here were around the 3-Star level .
If they felt that Hansoo's power was that of a 2-Star Transcendent, then they wouldn't be keeping such a long distance from them .
'At least a 3-Star... hmm . '
He didn't know how many there were, but they weren't weaklings .
As Hansoo looked into the distance
an aura quickly approached them from the far distance .
And Kiriel said softly to Hansoo as she felt this:
’’Not quite gentle, huh?’’
’’Right . ’’
The being was approaching them at an incredible speed .
Although the vehicles of Reyunion were easily moving at a speed above 300 km per hour even without the Flame, the mysterious Transcendent easily left those vehicles in the dust as they approached Hansoo's group .
The meteor-like being crossed multiple kilometers in an instant and soon arrived before them .
The man smiled as he looked at Hansoo and said in greeting:
’’Long time no see, Mr . Hansoo . I'm called John Stone . ’’
' . . . Who? I've never seen him before . '
Hansoo was confused .
But John Stone whistled as he looked at Hansoo .
'The world really got much better, huh?'
Hansoo was a being who was so powerful that he couldn't even imagine his strength in the past .
With a power so overbearing that being on the same floor as him was unbelievable .
He shone even more because he used that strength to fight at the very front lines .
Achieving things nobody could even dream of .
Back then, he'd thought that Hansoo was mankind's savior .
Until he turned the world upside down and disappeared two years ago .
'Well, I've gotten much stronger thanks to you . '
He'd managed to quickly rise up to the 6th to the 6th Zone and gained a tremendous amount of strength .
Although Hansoo was stronger than him, he was still confident .
Intel was more important than strength .
The reason why Hansoo had been able to lead them was not just because of his strength, but mainly because he knew what to do .
But not anymore .
He wouldn't know anything since he'd just come up .
It wasn't Hansoo that was setting up the playing field anymore but him instead .
'Good . Good . '
’’Do you know what's going on around here?’’
Hansoo chuckled as he looked at the confident John Stone .
'I can already guess where your confidence comes from, but... things won't play out the way you want . '
Information was important indeed .
If he was going to speak on his own, then there was no reason to refuse .
John Stone giggled as he said:
’’You wouldn't . If you did... you wouldn't be this carefree after knowing that the man you raised has already betrayed you...’’
'Heheh . '
John Stone smiled .
'Tsk . I knew this would happen . They're already swarming around them . '
The Nerpa was at a loss as he looked at the data from inside the Kalkuroun Fleet .
They had left behind three controllers .
But flies had already gathered around two of them .
Especially large flies .
'One... is the Neropa Union . Another is the Pompeion Empire... I see . '
He'd been initially surprised because the technology should've been beyond their comprehension, but it looks like they'd solved a part of it .
That was probably the reason why the two forces had been able to crush all others .
Because they had a secret weapon that the others didn't .
'I guess this fleet would be nowhere enough . '
The Nerpa pondered for a moment and then changed his destination .
'The last one should be easy . The flies around it seem weak enough . '
The fleet started to move again .
Towards the Reyunion's territory .
The Flameless Land .
