It didn't take long for Wang Zheng to find a space transmitter that looked like an altar. Of course, it was just an image. This should be the true projection of the Saint World. The efforts of the Saint were visible. They were going to start the real action soon.
Wang Zheng went in without any hesitation. It was impossible to get the cub if he didn't enter the lion's den first.
The quiet place became lively immediately. There was blood and ambition in their liveliness. The explosions from the first two days gave rise to the prelude to the Oracle. There was no need for anything useless.
There had to be an announcement to make them gather all the disciples. People started to amass. Most of them were excited since they were finally going to know the results. The plan had been going on for quite some time. The chance to show themselves had finally arrived.
The rules were not officially announced yet, but rumors had been flying around. Now that the Oracle had descended, everyone, no matter whether they were from the Saint, from the Abyss, pirates, or even special agents from the Milky Way Alliance, had a chance.
No one was unaware of the benefits of being a Son of Saint. It was definitely not just a title. There was definitely power and influence involved in it. Nonetheless, everyone knew it wouldn't be easy.
Xie Yuxin had gotten Meng Tian and the rest to just rest until the Oracle selection officially started. Everyone had slept and eaten well - perhaps they wouldn't be so lucky moving forward.
"Kang Siqi, why are you breathing so heavily?" Yuan Jing asked.
Kang Siqi continued breathing heavily. "Guess who I saw?"
"Who?" Did you perhaps see the Aslan Princess?" Mengha grinned.
"No, Jay York. He had one hand less but disappeared in the blink of an eye. I thought he was bombed to death," Kang Siqi answered.
Everyone believed in Xie Yuxin's words when the bracelets exploded. They thought that it was something he had prophesized even though he said that he had guessed it.
It was an instinct to survive. Everything felt good when they were living. Of course, the price for the removal of the bracelet was nothing compared to the chance they still held.
Xie Yuxin didn't hide the meeting with the Second Elder from them, so they now trusted Xie Yuxin's judgment even more. That was that the Second Elder was searching for something from them. Of course, it could be the Son of Saint. Their chances of survival would increase significantly.
"Meng Tian, Xie Yuxin, go out and see." Huo Dong ran in with a serious face.
"What is it about this time? Why are you acting strange as well?" Mengha rolled his eyes.
"You'll know when you see it. It's too… perverted!" Huo Dong looked like he was trying to hold his vomit in, then he went to one side and really vomited.
There were many people on the streets when they went out. All of them looked at the screen in the sky with a serious expression.
There were more than 10 petri dishes. There were humans… and half-human, half-monsters. Their bodies were transforming. Staff walked around to inject them with different colored concoctions and took different colored bodily fluids from them.
There were the names of the subjects and their progress.
The Saint's program was to perfectly match the genes of humans and Zerg to become the most perfect species and the guardian of the Saint.
The Saint had to cultivate more powerful warriors to fight with the Milky Way Alliance and to dominate the human race, including the tough Atlanteans. They had to have unimaginable combat power to defeat technology. Bioengineering could do just that.
It had succeeded before in history. That was a disaster that nearly destroyed humanity. Zerg in human form was successful. The Saint Church preserved the technology and data. However, they seemed to have high failure rates in this generation for some reason. Most importantly, their combat power was low and useless. That was until the Saint Church discovered the Abyssal Zerg. It was the best match.
The Saint would have an army of super warriors when they succeed. This would be the pinnacle of bioengineering. The most difficult first successful case would also be first hand data.
Lear and Luo Fei were also on the list. Xie Yuxin and Meng Tian knew Lear and Luo Fei. There were some whose bodies had begun to change. However, that was a sign of failure.
Genetic improvement was no longer high-end technology. Difficulty was in cross-species fusion, more so for interstellar species. The current mainstream concept was to first infect the genes with a virus and then inject the gene of the Zerg to supplement. Too much or too little would both result in failure.
There was only one way to succeed. That would be to absorb the Zerg genes, and the best of their genes at that. Only then would the guardians required by the Saint be born.
That required the subjects themselves to have a strong desire for survival and strength.
Every failure would become just another digit in the database. What they became… was irrelevant.
At that moment, a person started to transform because he couldn't resist the powerful devouring power of the Abyssal Zerg. His bones burst open, fangs swelled out from his mouth, his body started to swell, his eyeballs bulged, his claws started growing…
A piercing cry ensued. Everyone watched silently, but the worst thing was that this subject seemed to be conscious. That was the end of this subject.
He saw himself through the reflection of the petri dish. The lower body of a spider and the head of a hideous monster.
He used his claws to pierce through his own neck, the claws still moving after a while…
