Chapter 62: Spaceship Attack
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Demonic Crystal Spaceship was crowded at the time. Fortunately, the room was soundproofed and Lin Huang was not disturbed.
He led a life of order. He took his lunch when it was time for meals, and planned his day accordingly. After having his lunch, he walked around the deck.
The first floor of the spaceship was for entertainment. There were restaurants, bars, a cinema, a casino and a swimming pool. Basic entertainment facilities were provided too.
Lin Huang took a look at these facilities and left as he was not interested in any of them at the time.
The 11th floor of the spaceship was reserved for VIPs. The rooms on this floor were never opened for bookings as they were used to serve the royal families. A special induction lock was installed at the entrance of the 11th floor. People like Lin Huang who had bought a normal flight ticket were not given access to the 11th floor.
Therefore, Lin Huang and the rest of the passengers had no idea how the 11th floor looked like. It had been said that there were only 100 rooms on the 11th floor and the floor space of each of the rooms was many times bigger than a normal room. The remaining space was used to build high-end entertainment facilities. However, no one knew exactly what they had up there.
In addition to all that, there was also an open-air balcony on the 11th floor. Similarly, it was only opened to the guests who stayed there. Lin Huang could see that there were people walking around on the 11th-floor balcony deck. However, it did not seem like a special event and it was less crowded than any other deck.
After dinner, Lin Huang went to the bar.
He was not a lively person. He seldom went to bars when he was on Earth and if he did, he would only go when he was persuaded by his friends and classmates. It was the first time for him in a bar in this world as he wanted to experience something new.
The environment was good and they played relaxing music. He felt relaxed while listening to the music. However, he was utterly unfamiliar with the name of the drinks as he saw them in front of the bar counter.
"What the hell is an Old Hunter Raising Gun? What about the Fragrant Tongue of the Gorgeous? There was even this Very Stiff... Why can't there be some normal names for the drinks?!" Lin Huang was speechless. He took a glance at it and all of the names consisted of words that made people have distorted thoughts.
There was an old man standing behind the bar counter. He was shorter than Lin Huang and looked lascivious with his small eyes.
"Young man, what would you like to order?" he asked. It was still early and there were not many customers in the bar. The old man was wiping a wine goblet while he asked.
"Are there any lighter bodied drinks?" Lin Huang hesitated and asked. He wanted to leave as he saw the names of the drinks. However, it would be rude for him to leave now since the old man had asked him for his order.
"Lighter bodied drinks?" The old man frowned, seemingly not satisfied with Lin Huang's question. "Yes, we have greenleaf juice here."
Greenleaf juice was a very common drink that could be found in almost every bar and restaurant. It was somehow similar to the beers the people used to drink on Earth. The alcohol content of greenleaf juice was almost the same as beers but it tasted a lot better. There was a fragrance of malt with a softly perceptible sweetness. If it were to sell on Earth, perhaps beer factories would close down soon after.
"Alright. Then I would like to order a glass of greenleaf juice," he said. Lin Huang was afraid that if he were drunk, he would be delayed when he was disembarking the ship. Looking at the names of the drinks, he was worried that the uncle's drinks had some strong effects.
Soon, the glass of greenleaf juice was served. Lin Huang took a sip and it tasted almost the same as the others. He was then assured and downed the glass of juice immediately.
Perhaps it was because Lin Huang only ordered a glass of greenleaf juice, the old man did not bother to serve him after that. He was still wiping the wine cups and did not speak to Lin Huang. Oddly enough though, Lin Huang was happy with that.
In the bar, there were two muscular men chatting and drinking at a seat not far away from him.
Lin Huang unintentionally overheard their conversation. It was about the 11th floor of the spaceship. They were discussing a beautiful lady who stayed on the 11th floor.
From their conversation, Lin Huang knew that there were five members of a royal family on board.
The name of the beautiful lady was Leng Yuexin and she was the only child of the Leng's royal family. She was only 18 years old but ranked 13th on the Division7 Gold Hunter Board.
Lin Huang was surprised too as he heard of her achievement. Yi Yeyu was 19 years old but she ranked 997th on the board. Although Yi Zheng was ranked 11th on the board, he was already 21 years old.
Besides Leng Yuexin, there were four other royal members. They were all young man and one of them ranked fifth on the Division7 Gold Hunter Board. His name was Li Yanxing.
Lin Huang had heard of his name despite him not paying much attention to the Gold Hunter Board. This was mainly because of he was a high-profile person.
He was a legend. It was being said that he was orphaned as a child. Without any resources, he worked hard for himself until he was adopted by the Li's royal family and given the name Li Yanxing. He worked hard until he achieved what he had now. However, he was already 27 years old.
According to them, Lin Yanxing was chasing Leng Yuexin while he invited the other three royal members to accompany him.
"Li Yanxing sounded like a high-handed person..." Although Lin Huang did not have much knowledge of who Li Yanxing was, he somehow felt that it would not be easy for him to achieve what he had now. Of course, he had to be a hardworking person but not everything could be achieved with just hard work. It was still a mystery why the Li's royal family would put so much effort into educating an outsider since they had descendants of their own.
However, Lin Huang did not bother to know more about it since it was about someone else and it had nothing to do with him.
Lin Huang left when the two muscular men switched to discussing the special services provided.
The sky was getting darker as he went back to his room.
A sound of a siren was heard coming from the spaceship as he was about to practice his No Trail Snow-Stepping technique.
In a short while, a loud and noisy sound was heard.
"There's a flock of birds coming towards us! For the sake of safety, passengers please leave the deck and go back to your own rooms as soon as possible. Please make sure that the door and windows are closed and put your seatbelts on! It's normal if you feel the spaceship tremble when the birds attack. Don't worry as we'll settle this as soon as possible. I hereby apologize for the inconvenience caused," and the voice trailed off.
After the announcement was made, Lin Huang quickly closed the doors. He put on his seatbelt and sat near a window. He was curious to how the spaceship would stand against the birds' attack.
Soon, the birds were getting closer to the spaceship.
Lin Huang could see clearly from the window that they were millions of Blast Sparrows. Under normal circumstances, most of the Blast Sparrows were bronze-level to silver-level. Apparently, the only Blast Sparrow with a gold crown on its head was a gold-level sparrow.
Lin Huang could not see from his angle whether the spaceship had taken any countermeasures to defend against the sparrows.
However, he could clearly see that the flock of sparrows was flying towards the spaceship. Soon, the spaceship was surrounded by them...
