Lu Shu was checking his gains from this journey. Suddenly, Chen Baili landed from the sky, along with Cheng Qiuqiao and his assistance force.
“Old Man, why are you here?” Lu Shu asked curiously. He slowly put the calculator in his hand into the Seal of Lands.
When Chen Baili saw Lu Shu’s calculator, he raised his eyebrows. To be honest, he could not understand why Lu Shu would have such a thing in his invisible storage equipment…
“Cheng Qiuqiao’s assistance force has come to take over this line of defense,” said Chen Baili. “Let them take over.”
“Then what about us?” Lu Shu was dumbfounded.
“You all will take over from Cheng Qiuqiao to form part of the assistance forces. You will go wherever there are too many soldiers of the sea,” said Chen Baili. “We will direct you where to go from the sky.”
Everyone was shocked. At first, those who had been chosen to be part of the assistance forces were the elite. Others could take periodic breaks, but the assistance forces could not. Furthermore, they had to go to the most dangerous lines of defense.
This island was very big. No one know where the soldiers of the sea would attack from. Thus, the assistance forces played a very important role.
At first, everyone admired Cheng Qiuqiao and his team. All those who were part of the assistance forces were acknowledged as the elites. But the 42nd Battalion, which was not particularly outstanding, had been chosen to exchange jobs with Cheng Qiuqiao and his team.
Cheng Qiuqiao looked at Lu Shu and beamed with joy. “Brother Lu Shu, I’ll leave it to you!”
Cao Qingci walked out from behind the crowd and said calmly to Lu Shu, “We’re relying on you.”
Typically, Cao Qingci was very cold and did not speak. But it seemed like she was very familiar with Lu Shu.
Lu Shu could not do much. “Then I’ll leave this line of defense in your hands.”
He knew that Chen Baili had seen his strength, as well as the power of the more than three hundred soldiers wearing bronze armor. The power they possessed while wearing the bronze armor was not worthy of just protecting one area.
In times long ago, heavily-armored soldiers were a synonym for low mobility. The soldiers who wore armor were like fortresses on land, but could not move quickly. But now, it was different. The people behind him would not be burdened, even with a load of more than a hundred kilograms.
Lu Shu smiled. He turned to speak to Mo Chengkong and the rest. “Shall we go?”
Mo Chengkong and the rest were fired up. They were energetic young people. Everyone wanted to do more during this crucial time. They wanted to gain more honor.
This was like choosing a character in a game. Many young people liked to carry the match, but this did not suit their strengths. They wanted to play the most impressive role in the team. They had wanted to turn the tide in some era and save the world…
At that moment, Chen Baili suddenly flew up. “Prepare for battle. The soldiers of the sea have come!”
It was as if the soldiers of the sea did not know the concept of fatigue. They continuously attacked in waves.
Lu Shu was somewhat puzzled. Were there so many soldiers of the sea? How could they endlessly continue to attack? This did not make sense.
He looked at the system’s back end. It seemed as if a few people with the surname Ke had provided him with distress points. It would be great if he could find those who were providing him with distress points.
Chen Baili pointed the way. Southeast!
The 42nd Battalion followed Lu Shu. A team of over three hundred people maneuvered through the uneven ground of the island. It was as if a wave of blue soil was causing havoc…
Not everyone on the island had seen this wave of bronze. When the Daoyuan Class students in the southeast saw a group of people wearing bronze armor walking towards them, they shouted in despair, “Brothers, we have been surrounded by the soldiers of the sea…”
“We’re done for, we’re done for!”
“Has the line of defense behind us been broken through?”
“From Zhang Qian’s distress, +999…”
Lu Shu’s eyes lit up. So he could earn distress points by scaring others. What a reliable tactic!
He had not shouted, “Comrades!” and simply led the team to attack the soldiers of the sea because he had wanted to earn more distress points… Lu Shu felt that he would be able to earn enough distress points to light up the Seventh Star!
The group of Daoyuan Class students in the southwest looked at the battle field in front of them, dumbfounded. Suddenly, a girl went wild with excitement. “The soldiers of the sea have turned against their own kind. Did they have some internal conflict? This is like the crown prince and the prince fighting over the position of king! Now, the crown prince has sent someone to attack the prince’s army…”
The boys by the side were confused. Who and who?
“Wait, have you guys realized? The faces within the armor are not blue!” Someone shouted in shock.
Suddenly, someone recalled the legendary 42nd Battalion… so they were comrades! What were all of you talking about?!
Mo Chengkong and the rest were puzzled. Why did Lu Shu not reveal his true identity? Was it because… he was more cruel when he was silent?
When Chen Zuan and the rest were selling the bronze armor, they explained how they had gotten their hands n the armor. But everyone felt that it must have been very difficult. After all, it was hard enough just defeating the enemy.
When they saw the 42nd Battalion’s smooth and experienced moves, they were dumbfounded. Some people were hitting the soldiers of the sea, while others dragged them into the crowd. Some were in charge of removing the armor, while others were in charge of the final blow. Everyone had their own role and efficiency increased.
The soldiers of the sea were like products on a production line. Every time they went through someone, they would be stripped of something…
After Lu Shu had killed the soldiers of the sea, here, he did not turn back and led the battalion elsewhere. The points of danger were constantly changing. Chen Baili had signaled for them to provide support elsewhere. Even Chen Baili’s flying swords could not attend to each and every area in need.
After the wave of bronze had left, the soldiers of the sea had been wiped out. The bronze armor that the 42nd Battalion had stripped were still lying on the ground…
This time, Lu Shu did not take the bronze armor away and left the armor there up for grabs. He had earned 10 million just from this journey. If he earned any more, he may have to deal with Nie Ting again…
It would be like back then, when Lu Shu transferred 500 thousand everyday. He could set a higher quota to transfer, but if he transferred over too much money, both accounts would be frozen. This was the problem of proportion. He had to work the proportion out right so that he would not have to be involved with Nie Ting…
There was a period where what had happened on the southeast line of defense occurred several times over. A cycle of “oh no, we’ve been surrounded.” and “oh wait, they are actually our comrades!” happened again and again. Lu Shu earned more and more distress points…
Lu Shu looked at the system’s back end. He only had to earn a hundred thousand more distress points!
