Chapter 371: Conqueror Xia Fei
Daimu kept groveling on the ground, begging for Xia Fei not to hurt his people. He had lost his sight, so the tribal chief had no idea where Xia Fei was, and he was merely randomly kneeling on the ground.
After several steps, Daimu was on the left side of the command center, over a very plain looking metal flooring. “Oh, Venerable one, what I said is the truth. Entering the ancestral spaceship requires the eight chiefs of the Tulon tribes to each hold a black crystal token, using their special abilities in unison to power up the spaceship. I’m willing to gather the seven other chiefs and open this ancestral spaceship so that you can see the living cerebrum of the insectoids.”
His words sounded extremely humble, and his attitude was unquestionably subservient. After all, he was already well advanced in years, so anyone could not help but find it utterly pitiful to see him lower his head and plead in this fashion. However, no one noticed that the corners of Daimu’s mouth had quietly curved into a smirk.
He fingered a circular protruding metal button on the flooring with his right hand and sprawled down flat on the ground.
Unfortunately, while most people might have not noticed this small action, he was unable to get past Xia Fei’s two eyes which had cultivated the Beast Spirit Codex.
Xia Fei flashed a slight smile as he exercised Breath Control, quietly arriving beside Daimu as he waited for something to happen.
All he saw was Daimu tearfully begging in remorse even as his nose sniffed randomly in the air. Unfortunately, Xia Fei’s Breath Control would also hide his scent, or else just the smell of tobacco lingering around him would have given away his position.
Daimu steeled his resolve and pushed the button!
A floor piece roughly two square meters suddenly sank down, and Daimu fell along with it! At the same time, a firm steel plate fell down on that only door leading to the command center! It seemed that this had been a ploy to trap Xia Fei!
Daimu landed heavily on the ground below, a painful fall that he gritted his teeth to bear. Meanwhile, a metal plate immediately sealed off the trapdoor he had just used. Such metal plates used in warships were very sturdy, and even Xia Fei would have trouble trying to open one if he actually got trapped behind it.
Daimu had miscalculated, however. Just as he crashed to the ground, Xia Fei landed lightly on his feet some three meters away without making a sound.
Daimu sniffed the air with his sensitive nose before finally relaxing, coldly harrumphing. “Hmph! Oh, dear Venerable Xia, has no one told you that the Tulon species is untrustworthy?”
Xia Fei saw him with a smug look across his face, looking as if he had just been victorious.
Xia Fei shook his head as he sighed. “I really wouldn’t know if you didn’t say a word, but I can see it clearly now.”
The smile on Daimu’s face instantly melted away; his originally green face turned even greener after getting shocked by Xia Fei.
Two thousand lives. Two thousand of the most elite warriors of the Tulon species. That was the result of Daimu making a move against Xia Fei. The withered landscape was now drenched in blood, bringing color to the lifeless land as the air permeated with the smell of death made people vomit in disgust.
“Venerable one, didn’t you say that you’d only kill a thousand of my tribesmen? Why did you end up taking two thousand of their lives, instead?” Daimu could not help but tremble as he asked this between tears.
“The tribal leader made a mistake, so the punishment is doubled!” Xia Fei coldly grunted.
Phantom shrugged. This time, he no longer begged for mercy for these little green lives. The reality had shown that the Tulon species was evil, repaying kindness with cunning, not at all the least bit trustworthy.
Against such a group of sapient lives, Phantom had no better solution aside from delivering death. It was just Xia Fei’s frequency and magnitude of slaughtering that Phantom somewhat criticized. He did not know why, but ever since Xia Fei returned from the Death Tri-region the second time, he had become more bloodthirsty, something that Xia Fei might not have even realized himself.
Xia Fei was never merciful to his foes, but this time was different. Perhaps it was Avril’s situation that was making him irritable, leaving so many corpses in his wake the moment he made a move.
“You’ve got another chance here. If you fail, I’ll definitely eradicate your entire species,” Xia Fei said softly.
Daimu was in a daze, and in the next moment, his entire body deflated, like a balloon that had lost its air. In front of Xia Fei’s deranged slaughter, he had already lost the last shred of bravery in him.
“I’m going to go find the other tribe leaders and open your ancestral spaceship.”
Daimu nodded, not saying a word.
Xia Fei captured another tribesman by the name of Murimu, whom he took on his Impaler with Daimu, flying toward the western plains.
The little robot Pod had no idea what the role these two aliens with green skin were onboard, enthusiastically bringing them snacks and drinks. Murimu was speechless when he saw the AI robot Pod. A machine capable of intelligent thought? This was an extremely magical sight to behold in front of the Tulon species!
“There’s a settlement of Tulons past this snowy mountain. Their leader’s called Yaimu,” Murimu said.
Xia Fei pursed his lips, thinking to himself that the name of the Tulons were all strange, having the suffix -imu.

He saw a big cluster of tents by the foot of the mountain from afar as well as several stone huts. The size of this tribe appeared to be bigger than Daimu’s, with far more tents around.
