Since Lin Huang was unsure about how humans would be treated at the Shelter, he used a Transformation Card before entering to avoid unnecessary trouble. He transformed himself into Grimace.
However, he changed what Grimace was wearing.
The exquisite and sophisticated black robe with golden patterns did not have any more golden patterns on it. It was pure black now while the bottom of the robe was longer. It hung all the way to his ankles, covering his entire body.
At first, the black gentleman's hat on his head had a circlet of diamonds mounted on it. Lin Huang removed the adornment so that only the hat remained.
He also took off the golden mask that Grimace usually wore on half of his face.
The same happened to the white gloves that Grimace wore on his hands. Lin Huang removed them, revealing his fair hands. The pair of hands had long, slender fingers that looked like a pianist's.
The black walking stick in his right hand was changed into a normal wooden one.
Bloody, who was with him, also changed into a heavy, red robe. She covered her beautiful figure entirely and wore a mask on her face to cover her features.
They disguised in such a low profile to avoid unnecessary attention.
However, Lin Huang and Bloody never would have thought that all their efforts would be in vain.
There were at least 30 monsters of all kinds that seemed like humans queuing obediently at the entrance. It was a long queue at the entrance of the Shelter.
Seeing those monsters lining up, Lin Huang and Bloody naturally joined the queue at the back.
They did not expect the scorpion monster that was queuing before them to give up its queue upon seeing both of them. It went behind them instead.
Later on, the second and third monsters before them gave up their spots to them one after another.
In confusion, Lin Huang and Bloody stepped ahead of the queue.
At the moment, the four guards at the entrance came up to them. The leading one was a spider monster with human heads with a combat strength only being on immortal-level rank-4 or rank-5.
This spider monster with legs that were seven to eight meters long had a few capsules that resembled human heads. It ambled to them slowly. "I never expected both Masters to arrive. Please enter!"
The four guards retreated to the sides after the leader said that to show them the way to the entrance.
Lin Huang glanced at Bloody. Noticing that she was in deep thoughts, he did not ask her anything. Instead, he turned his head and nodded at the leading spider monster with human heads. He then walked into the Shelter in long strides.
Bloody followed him into the Shelter.
Lin Huang only asked Bloody through voice transmission after they entered the Shelter, "What was that?"
"The few guards only had immortal-level combat strength. Theoretically, they shouldn't be able to sense our combat strength. Those monsters that were queuing had even lower combat strength," Bloody explained, "I'm guessing they must have guessed our levels. To monsters below mythical-level, a quadruple mutated mythical-level monster would have a certain level of suppression against them. They can clearly sense such suppression on their souls."
As the duo chatted through voice transmission, Lin Huang discerned many monsters of all forms around observing him and Bloody.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
He studied the monsters further to realize that Bloody and he were the only two creatures on two feet.
The other creatures in the Shelter were either flying in the sky or crawling on the ground. Almost none of them walked on both feet like them.
"I thought we wouldn't be noticed if we changed, but it seems like I was too naive," Lin Huang whispered embarrassedly.
"It isn't a bad thing," Bloody replied with a smile, "Since we can't stay low-profile, there's no need for us to spy around. We can just speak to the Shelter guardians."
"I guess that's the only way. We must've stepped into the sights of this Shelter's guardians now. They'd think that we're up to something if we proceed with sneaking around." Lin Huang nodded in agreement with Bloody's suggestion.
He soon found the guardians' location after he spread his Divine Telekinesis. They stepped out and appeared at the building where the guardians were.
The building was clearly built by humans judging from its style. Lin Huang could not help but raise an eyebrow.
The building before them was a ruin. Only about 30 floors that were close to the ground was all that remained. Lin Huang did not think too much about it before this. Now that he had seen the building, he realized that this Shelter was built on a human ruin.
A voice came all of a sudden when the duo peered up. "I didn't expect VIPs to visit us today."
As the voice rang out, three silhouettes came out of the building almost at the same time. They landed slowly on the ground.
The leader was a human monster with a grimacing mask. Its body was covered in a loose, black robe, so nobody could tell if it was a male or female. It had a long, black tail behind and the body of a monster with many legs. Furthermore, its body was separated into segments. The tip of its tail was a spear-like sting.
The second monster was a white-haired ape. It looked weak with slender limbs, and it held a black walking stick that looked like a branch in its hand.
The third monster was a fish monster. It had the body of a human but a head that looked a little like a catfish's. Although it had human limbs, its clearly exposed hands had scales on them.
Among the three monsters, the fish monsters and the ape monster had Virtual God rank-3 combat strength. The black-robed monster in the mask that had spoken earlier was on Virtual God rank-4.
Although one could not determine its gender under the black robe, one could distinguish that it should be a male from the voice.
"We're sorry to disturb you." Lin Huang chose to respond courteously seeing that the three monsters had no hostility although they had their guards up. He nodded slightly at the three of them.
"I wonder what's the purpose of your visit. Pray, tell." The monster in the mask was still cautious and did not get any closer.
"We actually fell into this place unintentionally. We thought we could ask for information seeing there's a Shelter nearby. We have no other intentions. All we want to know is the way to get back to the great world."
The three monsters glanced at each other after hearing Lin Huang say what sounded somewhat truthful. They put their guards down gradually.
"So, you guys are the new people who just entered the virtual zone. I can only say that it's unfortunate for you guys to have fallen into the virtual zone."
"What do you mean?" Lin Huang asked while frowning a little.
"This place is called the virtual zone. It's a land where the Space Rule is messed up. There are always space tunnels of all sorts opening here, but it's very difficult to figure out where exactly they lead to. Moreover, even if it's the tunnel that leads to the great world, nobody knows where in the great world it would send you to," the monster in the mask explained while smiling. "In other words, for you guys to return to where you came from is as difficult as reaching the stars."
Lin Huang and Bloody would never have thought that the virtual zone was such a place.
Lin Huang asked again after falling into silence for a moment while frowning, "Is there really no way for us to go back?"
"It's not that there's no way. In this virtual zone, there's only one person that can send you to the place you desire in the great world. The thing is, it's hard to say if that person is willing to help."
"Who is that?!" Lin Huang asked immediately.
"The Butterfly Sovereign at the Central Shelter!"
