"At the bottom of the lake? Are you sure?"
Although Lin Huang trusted Bloody, from what he remembered Starlight Beast wasnt a monster that lived in water. Bloody understood Lin Huangs doubt immediately and wrote on the ground again.
"Theres an isolated water-less area at the bottom of the lake with many Starlight Beasts living inside there."
"Isolated area? With a lot of Starlight Beasts?" Lin Huangs eyes lit up as he listened.
"Wait, let me transform myself then you can bring me there!"
Lin Huang transformed himself into Spectre with a Specific Transformation Card and dived into the lake following Bloody. Bloody took the lead while Lin Huang followed behind it in the form of Spectre. The lake water was clear and Lin Huang could see many schools of silver fish as well as water monsters. However, they were running away when they saw Bloody, none of them dared to come close. Although the monsters were all different kinds, once they were within a close distance they could sense that Bloody was double mutated. Such a vibe became fear for them, which then became a convenience for Lin Huang.
After swimming down for half an hour, Bloody finally stopped and pointed ahead. Lin Huang swam for some distance and noticed there was a strange area not far in front. If you didnt look closely it would have been hard to tell that the area was strange. It was like a thin round glass floating in the water. Without Bloody telling him he might have missed this place. After observing from the outside, Lin Huang poked one finger into the area. Since nothing happened he entered the area followed by Bloody.
Lin Huang was shocked at what he was seeing as he thought it was connected to an underground location or even a cave. However, it was a wide area with a sky and even a sun. There was lush green on the ground, it was like a wide-open meadow, he couldnt see where the end of the meadow was. Just when Lin Huang thought the area was unreal the fragrance of grass and flowers came to his nose which assured him that what he was looking at wasnt an illusion.
"Bloody, how did you find the Starlight Beasts here?" Lin Huang could not help but ask as until now, he hadnt seen any. Of course, it could be due to the area being too big. Bloody took out a writing board from the storage ring and wrote with its vine.
"Yes, I saw many of them and informed you immediately."
Lin Huang had prepared the writing board in the storage ring specifically for Bloody when they were in Meteorite City as there were environments that would not be convenient for writing. The customized storage ring could be activated using Life Power and could even be used by monsters.
"Where are they? Bring me there!" Lin Huang wanted to see them for himself before planning his next step. Once on the meadow, Bloody shrank himself to the size of a thumb which was hard to be noticed, while Lin Huang dived underground and followed behind it to the area where the Starlight Beasts had gathered. In less than 10 minutes Bloody had brought Lin Huang to their destination. Lin Huang who was hiding underground was shocked at what he saw on the ground as there were at least 300 Starlight Beasts in this area.
There were more than 10 of them whose color and size were different from the usual Starlight Beasts; clearly they were mutated once. Besides the Starlight Beasts, there was another thing that caught his attention. There was a black gigantic rock that was 10 meters long and equally tall. Its shape was out of the ordinary that didnt seem like a natural product from the area instead it looked like an item from somewhere else. Lin Huang sensed that the appearance of the Starlight Beasts was related to the black rock.
"I need to leave now. There are too many Starlight Beasts here if I were to do anything I would definitely die. These Starlight Beasts are all gold-level rank-3 moreover, therere more than 10 mutated ones. With their attack speed, even Bai wouldnt be able to handle them and perhaps summoning all my monsters still wouldnt be enough to fight them"
Thinking of the issues, Lin Huang decided to recall Bloody into its card form and left the nest quietly. When they arrived on top of the lake, Lin Huang summoned Bloody again.
"There are too many of them, I cant attack and besides, even if any of them left the group, we couldnt attack in that nest as its too quiet inside. There isnt any other force in the nest at all so if we attack, the shockwave from our attack would definitely alert them and by then, wed be killed by the monsters." Lin Huang said.
"It seems like we could only wait for them to come out and look for food, we could then kill them outside."
"We could lure them." Bloody took out the writing board again and wrote.
"Lure them?" Lin Huang was stunned at the suggestion.
"Thats a great idea, its so much better than waiting for them."
"We could get the Ghastly Clown to get them out." Bloody wrote again after erasing what it wrote earlier.
"Yes, thats a great idea! The Ghastly Clown can control a mutated Starlight Beast and get it to leave the nest. We could then kill it and obtain the muted Life Seed gift!" Lin Huang thought it was totally doable.
After confirming the plan, Lin Huang discussed the details with Bloody. Later on, he was ready to carry out the plan. To avoid affecting the forces in the nest, Lin Huang summoned the Ghastly Clown before jumping into the lake. After briefing it, he transformed himself into the Spectre again and dived into the water with Bloody and the Ghastly Clown. Soon, they made it to the bottom of the lake and entered the isolated area. Once they entered the area, the Ghastly Clown shrunk to the size of a palm. They had arrived at the area where the Starlight Beasts gathered in an instant.
However, Lin Huang was shocked again as they arrived at the area. All of the Starlight Beasts were on all fours standing on the ground, even the 10 mutated ones. They seemed to be worshipping. Looking in the direction where all of them were looking, Lin Huang noticed that there was another monster standing on top of the black gigantic rock. This monster was different from the other Starlight Beasts with a different look and size.
She looked like a human lady with silver armor, there was a metal helmet which covered her entire hair. On her face, there was a two-colored mask with red on the left and blue on the right. Her face had nothing on it, not even eyes and her body was long; she was around 2.5 meters tall. She didnt look overwhelming with her body size in perfect ratio with her height. At the back of her armor were six wings that looked like golden knives. Clearly, the wings could be weapons as well. Besides the wings, she was holding a purple spear on her right hand which seemed to be her main weapon.
"This Starlight Beast should be the double mutated one" Lin Huang was guessing in his heart.
