989 Herculean King, Quadruple Mutated
Lin Huang found out from the two white-robed men's minds that Chan Dou was still alive, but the duo had no idea where he had been sent to.
The God Bless organization was massive whereby there were a couple of branches in each safety zone and each branch in the same zone served different purposes. The white-robed men only knew what was happening at their branch, but they knew nothing much about the other branches and the headquarters. They did not even know where were the exact locations of those branches and headquarters.
Although Lin Huang found out about the location of their branch as well as there being a demigod there from the duo's memory, he did not plan to alert the enemy just yet.
Bloody shared the same opinion.
"Looking at the current situation, it's easy for us to destroy this branch that we know of. However, the people from God Bless will be even more cautious as soon as the branch is destroyed. It will only bring our further investigation a bigger obstacle, so we can't do anything to this branch just yet."
"I think so too, but the current issue is that we can't obtain more information to deepen the investigation if we don't drop by this branch."
"We don't have to do the investigation ourselves," Bloody said and looked at the two white-robed men who were still wandering in dreamland. "We can send two spies in."
Lin Huang's attention shifted to the two white-robed men. He stared at them for a while and turned his head to ask the Nightmare Tapir, "Can you do it?"
"It shouldn't be a problem. I can imprint a part of me in their bodies. As soon as they fall asleep, I can retrieve the information from their heads no matter the distance. Furthermore, nobody will find out about that including themselves," said the Nightmare Tapir, nodding, but he raised a question, "But there's one problem. Many things they experienced in the dreamland can't be explained properly. If we let them go just like that, there'd be many loopholes when someone were to question them. They'd find out about it sooner or later. I'm afraid they'd know we did something to them by then."
"Tell me about what they went through. I'll make you a new script." Bloody took up the responsibility.
Bloody saw everything in their heads a moment later. "I get it now. I might need your help to delete the beginning portion of their memory. Start from the Midnight Unicorn illusion they saw when they came to the canyon. Change it to them seeing a male Midnight Unicorn which ran away when it saw them from far away."
Soon, two days had passed. The two white-robed men returned to the second layer of the Abyss Brink from the third layer.
"I've already told you that he's definitely not on the third layer. We wasted two days for nothing," the short one complained, feeling irritated.
"It seems like Lin Xie has left the Abyss Brink," the tall one ignored the short one's complaint while speaking to himself, "Since he's not on the second and third layers, I think we should take a look at the first layer."
"Go by yourself. I don't have the time to play along with you. I'm going back to report myself now." The short one did not bother the tall one and rushed to the exit of the second layer right away.
The tall one frowned slightly. Seeing the short one disappearing from his field of vision, he followed, feeling helpless.
Over half an hour later, the duo got out of the second layer exit of the Abyss Brink one after another. They returned to the land.
Just when they returned, the duo summoned a Dimensional Portal and stepped into it.
In Division 3, Magical Sky City.
In a tall office building, there was a well-lit office with three transparent membrane walls.
An old, gray-haired man in a ponytail who was sitting at a meeting table was looking at the two white-robed men standing before the office table through the frameless glasses on his nose bridge.
One of the two white-robed men was short and the other, tall.
The tall one was at least 1.9 meters tall. His skin was unhealthily pale.
The short one was less than 1.7 meters tall. His skin was tanned, and one could see the pores on his nose from a couple of meters away.
The old man placed his elbows on the table while crossing both of his hands as he listened to the two men talking.
"Do you mean the both of you have browsed through the second and third layers of the Abyss Brink but you didn't find any trace of Lin Xie?"
"Yes, boss. We didn't only browse through the hunting zones this time. We also went through every inch of the land from the south to the north, from the east to the west, but we didn't find Lin Xie,' added the short one.
The old man did not look at the short guy. Instead, he turned his head to look at the tall one and asked, "You didn't miss out any place?"
The tall one nodded. "Yes, we didn't miss out an inch on the second and third layers."
"So, you didn't browse the first layer?" The old man frowned slightly.
The short one nudged the tall one next to him with his elbow. "See, I told you that we should browse the first layer, but you insisted that it's impossible for Lin Xie to go to the first layer and you said we must come back to report ourselves right away."
"You…" The tall one was enraged to hear that. Just like that, the short one turned the tables around!
"Never mind. It doesn't matter if you didn't browse through them. Indeed, it's pretty impossible that Lin Xie would go to the first layer." The old man waved to stop the duo's fight.
"Alright, both of you may leave now. Be on standby and don't go too far. There will be a mission soon."
"What mission, boss?" the short one asked rather curiously.
"Something from the Purple Crow. Don't ask about the detail. I'll tell you guys by then." The old man waved to get them to leave directly.
Lin Huang had been staying in the second layer of the Abyss Brink. He had been guarding the four golden eggs while practicing his sword skills every day.
At midnight on the ninth day, one of the golden eggs finally hatched.
Lin Huang put the wooden sword in his hand away immediately hearing the cracking of the shell. He looked at the few golden eggs and soon realized that it was the Herculean King's golden egg that was cracking.
The crack seemed to have formed automatically. It was just a hairline crack in the beginning at only over ten centimeters. Soon, it turned into the size of a thumb while its length expanded to hundreds of meters. The crack spread out, and there were more and more cracks.
Approximately half an hour later, cracks of all sizes filled the entire egg. All of a sudden, countless golden rays shot out of the cracks. Subsequently, the entire shell broke and turned into pieces. The tens of thousands of eggshell pieces turned into golden dots sparkling in the air. It looked like stars in the night sky.
Lin Huang saw the giant golden ape covered in the sparkles. The giant ape opened its eyes slowly as if it was waking up from a deep slumber. At the moment, the golden dots went through a tremor out of the blue. They turned into a golden stream and penetrated the giant ape's chest.
After a long time later, the golden gleam faded completely. The giant ape stepped forward, shrinking with every step it took.
Its height shrunk to three meters when it appeared before Lin Huang.
With the help of a bonfire, Lin Huang saw the Herculean King's transformed appearance.
His long hair was short now. He looked more like a human when he was standing up. The biggest difference was that many parts of his body were covered with a layer of golden armor. He even had an exquisite golden headband on his head and golden flames burned in his eyes.
'The Monkey King bar is the only thing you're missing to be the Monkey King!' Lin Huang thought to himself upon seeing the Herculean King's transformation.
