1256 The Guardian’s Visi
Lin Huang could not help but frown a little when he heard the human-faced monkey announce that he could not find the pick-up code. However, nobody could see the expression on his face since he wore a mask.
Next to Lin Huang, Bloody spoke up first, "Do you mean that our parcel is lost?"
The human-faced monkey squinted at Bloody. "Since we can't find the pick-up code, it's usually stolen. Smaller items are susceptible to that."
Bloody turned her head to look at Kylie next to her after hearing that. She nodded at her imperceptibly.
Kylie stretched her arm out and took off her mask, revealing her cold face. At the same time, she released her pure God's Blood aura and recalled it immediately.
The human-faced monkey was stunned when he saw Kylie's human features. Subsequently, his expression changed dramatically when he sensed the fleeting pure God's Blood aura of the Protoss.
One must know that they were in a God Territory, thus it was Protoss territory. Among Protosses, pure Protosses were the most arrogant and bossiest. Moreover, most of them had a terrifying background.
Whilst the human-faced monkey was unsure about what to do, Bloody, who was standing aside, spoke again, "Boss, why don't you look for it carefully again?"
The human-faced monkey nodded immediately. "Perhaps I missed it just now. Let me check again."
Kylie glared at him coldly and said nothing. She put on her mask again.
The bunch of people queuing behind did not see Kylie's face. Only a handful of them sensed her fleeting Protoss aura and knew what happened while the rest of them were confused.
"Isn't the owner all high and mighty? Why is he giving in now?"
"Yeah, he always calls the shots whenever the parcel can't be found. Whoever questions him would normally be chased away. Why is he looking for the pick-up code for the second time today?"
The human-faced monkey held his head down and checked again. Soon, he lifted his head and passed Bloody a little carton the size of a palm.
"I found it. Indeed, I missed it earlier."
The trio did not trouble the human-faced monkey further after taking the parcel. They turned around and left immediately.
The human-faced monkey was relieved when he saw them leave without saying anything. Although he was confident in his ability, he dared not offend any Protoss. It was the Protosses' territory after all.
Lin Huang and the other two did not expect such an incident to happen. Fortunately, they managed to get their identity rings in the end. They returned to the small hotel as soon as they received the parcel.
After they got into the hotel room, they opened the parcel. The three rings had different styles, but there was a little label on top of each ring. Among them were Bloody and Kylie's names while another one had 'Xie Lin' written on it.
The name of the label was correct. Lin Huang used a fake name of Xie Lin, switching around the name Lin Xie that he had used in the past.
They removed the label after retrieving their identity rings. Then, they began claiming ownership by dripping their blood onto the rings. After the ownership claiming was done, the three of them began familiarizing themselves with the identity rings.
Although the identity ring in the great world had many features that were different from those in the gravel world, most of the functions were similar. The functions on the page were just slightly more complicated with different interfaces.
Lin Huang merely spent a few minutes to learn all the functions of the new ring.
Bloody had used Lin Huang's identity in the past under his authorization, so with her intelligence, her speed of picking up the information was even faster than Lin Huang. She spent less than half a minute to familiarize herself with the identity ring completely.
Kylie spent a little more time on it since she had never used an identity ring before. Under Bloody's guidance, she only learned how to use the identity ring roughly half an hour later.
At the same time that the trio picked up the identity rings, a piece of news reached Start Shelter's guardian residence quietly.
"There were three people who are suspected to have disguised as Protosses at the receiving point earlier. We've confirmed them one of them is a female pureblood Protoss. The other two were disguised, so we failed to detect their real identities. We speculate them to most probably be Protosses too. The three of them have a combat strength of beginner-stage virtual god-level."
Half-naked, Start, who was revealing his muscular body, raised his brows slightly as he read the message while sitting in a cultivation room with his legs crossed.
"Three beginner-stage virtual god-level Protosses...Why bother to disguise themselves just to pick something up?"
A ring of waves reverberated behind Start just when he mumbled as if he was talking to himself. A rather husky voice came slowly, "There are three possibilities. The first one is that the goods are extremely important. Secondly, the goods are shady. Thirdly, the three of them are shady. There's a certain chance that the three possibilities overlap one another.
"They probably don't want to attract any attention picking up their stuff at your territory. After all, Start Shelter is just a grade-3 Shelter."
"Interesting..." Start smirked.
In the small hotel, the trio who were familiarized with the identity ring's applications were preparing to leave Start Shelter when someone knocked on the hotel room's door all of a sudden.
Their expressions changed.
"Who is it?!"
A thick male voice came behind the door slowly, "Your humble one is Start. I heard that there are three Protosses of the same kind staying here, so I thought I'd make a trip to visit."
The three of them were stunned to hear that. Never had they thought that the Shelter guardian would come to them when they were leaving.
Lin Huang merely hesitated for a moment before he walked forward in big steps and opened the door. "It's the Master Guardian. What a pleasure!"
Start glanced at the three of them. With his True God's vision, he saw through Bloody and Kylie's disguises.
Although he was not sure if Bloody was a Protoss, a glimpse was all it took for him to confirm that Kylie was the pureblood Protoss who had revealed her face at the receiving point earlier.
He shifted his attention and his gaze landed once more on Lin Huang who had opened the door. However, he could not see what was hiding under his disguise, so he could not help but feel doubtful.
"You sure are uptight with your attire, little brother."
"I've been scared of the cold since I was born, so I wore a bit more," Lin Huang responded while smiling, "Please come in, Master Guardian."
Start nodded and walked into the room. He could not help but shake his head after looking around. "I suppose the three of you didn't have to stay somewhere so crude even if you don't want anyone to know that you're in my Start Shelter, did you?"
"We just don't want unnecessary trouble," Lin Huang responded, "May I know if there's anything that we can do for you, Master Guardian?"
"Nothing, I just heard my people say that they saw Protosses of my own kind. I thought I should meet you guys and make friends." Start turned around and looked at Lin Huang with a smile.
"That's all?" Lin Huang asked while frowning a little.
"We're just here to pick up a parcel. We'll leave today," Lin Huang said clearly. He did not want any trouble or to be friends with the guardian.
"You're leaving so soon? I thought of getting you guys to stay at my residence if you're staying for a few days more. This is my territory, and I should be a good host since it's a rare occasion to meet Protosses of my own kind," Start invited, grinning.
"Thanks for your kindness, Master Guardian, but we can't take it. There's something that we need to handle as soon as possible, so we won't be staying. If we have the opportunity to come to Start Shelter again, we'll definitely stay longer and make it a proper visit." Lin Huang's rejection was very cordial. He was mentally prepared to attack if Start insisted on him staying.
However, Start seemed to really have no ill intentions. He nodded and said warmly, "I shan't get you guys to stay since there's something that you must deal with. Let's exchange contact numbers to keep in touch. If you guys are free to come to Start Shelter again, just come straight to my residence. I'll welcome you guys at any time!"
Then, he bade farewell to Lin Huang and the other two after they exchanged numbers.
Lin Huang thought it was strange when Start left. "What was that guy thinking? Did he come all the way here just to get our number?"
However, Bloody had seen through Start's trick. "He wants to check our identities through our contact."
"So what if he finds out about our identities?"
"After all, Kylie exposed her pureblood Protoss identity. Perhaps he has the intention to keep in touch with us because of that. If Kylie's tribe is from a major organization among the Protosses, having her contact would create the possibility to be in contact with a major tribe. If he finds out that we're insignificant among the Protosses, he'll just delete our contacts and cut ties. All he did was waste a couple of minutes to meet us."
