Cosmic Professional Gladiator - Chapter 323 - Targeting Earth's Civilization (2)
He also had to constantly observe his surroundings, but he finally shook off the swarm of Arthropods.
If I’m surrounded, I’m finished. I’ll have to start all over again. Xu Jingming didn’t dare to stop at all, and he only heaved a sigh of relief after shaking them off. My mind is focused, and my control over my body is strong enough. Yet, I felt like I had lost control of my body under that voice! If it were those with weaker minds, they probably wouldn’t be able to resist the voice.
Xu Jingming was under great pressure. All kinds of Arthropods had different abilities.
He hid under a rock in an inconspicuous mountain range and took a breather.
For the past 29 hours, I didn’t dare to slack off for even a moment. I traveled 2,526 kilometers. Xu Jingming checked his personal interface, feeling mentally drained. I averaged 87 kilometers an hour! It’s more tiring than I imagined!
This speed is a little slower than I expected, but I did my best. Xu Jingming reflected on the 29 hours of travel.

His body was always in optimum state. Even with his body in Blood Rain World, he could reach nearly 200 kilometers per hour with his level of control.
The reason why he traveled 87 kilometers an hour was due to the threat of the Arthropods!
There were all kinds of Arthropods—either alone or in swarms. Thankfully, Xu Jingming had super-realm strength and had long comprehended the phenomena of all living things. He was good at using all living things and their environments to instantly find a path that was most suitable for him, allowing him to travel this far.
Although my body is at its peak, I’m mentally exhausted. I’ll log off first. Xu Jingming didn’t think too much about it and immediately disappeared silently, leaving the mysterious land.
In reality, it was late at night.
Xu Jingming walked out of the virtual room and felt mentally relaxed. I can finally rest.
Xu Jingming walked to the living room and didn’t turn on the lights. He just lay on the sofa, his mind blank and empty.
He had long figured out the fluidity of water with his Spear Dao, and he had also figured out the phenomena of all living things! He knew how to control his surroundings and make use of them, but these 29 hours were too stressful!
He didn’t dare to relax for a moment. This was because once he failed, all his previous efforts would be in vain. He had to start all over again!
I’ve only walked less than one-tenth of the 30,000 kilometers, he thought to himself. There’s also a forest environment and an empty grassland environment next.
He sat on the sofa and completely relaxed. He could feel his mind quickly recover.
Clop! Clop! Clop!
Li Miaomiao walked down the stairs softly and switched on the lights in the living room.
“Jingming.” She revealed a look of delight. “Why didn’t you turn on the lights at this time?”
“I’m taking a break.” Xu Jingming smiled.
Li Miaomiao could sense the fatigue in his eyes.
“Is the mysterious place very dangerous?” She sat down beside him.
“It’s not easy.” Xu Jingming nodded. “Moreover, it’s only the beginning.”
Li Miaomiao nodded.
Her husband’s will was tenacious; he wouldn’t say that he was tired easily.
“Do you want to get something to eat?” she asked.
Xu Jingming felt his appetite get whetted when he heard that. Although he wouldn’t starve or get thirsty in the mysterious land, eating was sometimes a form of enjoyment, not just to fill his stomach.
“There’s ice cream, right?” Xu Jingming asked. “Get me one.”
“Alright.” Li Miaomiao got up to get it.
Soon, the couple started eating separately.
It’s refreshing and comfortable. Xu Jingming ate his ice cream and felt more relaxed. A sufficiently relaxed environment, the company of his family, good food… All of these helped him recover from mental fatigue.
“Is our daughter sleeping?” Xu Jingming asked.
“Yeah.” Li Miaomiao nodded. “She can sleep very long hours. She will sleep until eight or nine in the morning.”
Xu Jingming got up and went upstairs to the bedroom to take a look. His daughter was sleeping soundly.
“Jingming, it might be more efficient to relax,” Li Miaomiao reminded him.
Xu Jingming looked at his wife and nodded with a smile.
Relax? There was still a little more than a month before the civilization protection period ended! When that happened, who knew what kind of situation they would face?
Tejano had given him the Redmond Medal back then to protect him and his family! This meant that… without the Redmond Medal, he couldn’t guarantee the safety of himself and his family.
Although some powerful civilizations couldn’t plunder Earth due to the restrictions of the Cosmic Human Alliance’s rules, Xu Jingming was alarmed by some dark means that were employed when he checked them on the virtual world’s Internet. He also placed greater importance on this mysterious place!
Soon, in the courtyard of their residence, Li Miaomiao watched Xu Jingming board a spaceship. This X3 spaceship was a gift from Earth to Xu Jingming, and it was usually parked in the courtyard.
At this moment, he was riding a spaceship to the underwater base, using the gravity chamber and artificial star to cultivate!
According to his plan, he would cultivate once every three days or so! This allowed him to maintain almost maximum efficiency. It could also be considered an occasional ‘break’ during the exploration of the mysterious land.
There were a total of nine basic civilizations in the Milky Way, and the strongest of them was the Huanliang Civilization.
Of the 195 inhabitable planets in the Milky Way, the Huanliang Civilization had 93. Considering the different inhabitable planets’ different degrees of development, it could be said that… the other eight civilizations combined were no match for the Huanliang Civilization!
It was only limited by the Cosmic Human Alliance’s laws. If it were purely a matter of survival of the fittest, the Huanliang Civilization would’ve long reigned supreme over the Milky Way.
“Your Highness, our fleet is all ready to set off for Earth at any time,” a black-haired man said respectfully in a mountaintop building on a beautiful inhabited planet.
The purple-haired elder—who was leisurely painting—nodded and said, “As long as you’re ready. There’s no rush. We can’t enter the stellar system where Earth is located before the civilization protection period ends.”
“Understood.” The black-haired man’s eyes burned. “According to our investigations, Earth’s stellar system is rich in mineral resources! They even extravagantly bought a virtual mainframe, allowing all humans on the planet to enter the virtual world.”
“That wealth is only temporarily in the hands of Earth,” the purple-haired elder said leisurely. “Without sufficient strength, they aren’t qualified to have such wealth. When the time comes, they will obediently cough it up.”
“What I’m most worried about now is…” The purple-haired elder frowned slightly.
Suddenly, he received a transmission.
The purple-haired elder tapped his finger in the air, and a projection appeared—it was a purple-haired youth.
“Your Majesty.” The black-haired man immediately kneeled down respectfully when he saw this.
The purple-haired youth looked at the purple-haired elder with helplessness in his eyes and said, “Uncle, I just received a notification from the Black Moon civilization.”
The purple-haired elder was alarmed. “What is it?”
“The Black Moon civilization’s ambassador convoy will arrive on Earth in 39 days. They got our Huanliang Civilization to be in charge of being the intermediary.” As the emperor of Huanliang, the purple-haired youth felt very powerless.
On the surface, it was a notification, but it was actually an order!
“The Black Moon civilization has its eyes on this new civilization?” The purple-haired elder was indignant. They have their eyes on this gem as well?
“Earth has rich mineral deposits. Other than the remaining mineral deposits, they have more than three trillion cosmic dollars in cash after their initial transactions,” the purple-haired youth said. “They don’t think much of ordinary emerging civilizations, but the Black Moon civilization will clearly target a sufficiently rich emerging civilization.”
The purple-haired elder sighed softly.
They had to miss out on this opportunity.
“Uncle, you don’t have to set off. I’ll simply arrange for a team of ambassadors to accompany the Black Moon civilization,” the purple-haired youth said.
“Alright.” The purple-haired elder nodded and didn’t retort.
The transmission quickly ended.
The purple-haired elder instructed, “Dismiss the fleet.”
The black-haired man kneeling there could only reply, “Yes, Your Highness.”
“Black Moon civilization…” The purple-haired elder had mixed emotions.
This was a terrifying civilization that the Huanliang Civilization had lived under the shadow of for extended periods. The latter had to bow down to it everywhere, and it didn’t even dare to bare its teeth.
As the strongest civilization in the 12th Star Zone of Oohook Star Alliance, the Black Moon civilization had 89 galaxies! Its strength was incomparably terrifying. If Huanliang Civilization was a feral wolf, then the Black Moon civilization was a tyrannosaurus rex!
