The Last Cat in the Universe - Chapter 7-1
Ephemeris 2017, 2nd of November.
Within the Hintas Empire, which owns the No.18 Greater Galaxy, has the most abundant materials in the proven universe, and has tens of thousands of inhabitable planets, there, big news occurred!
The youngest of the three major marshals of the Empire, Marshal Ji Xiuyun, was raided on the way of inspection and was untold up till now!
Once the news was issued, it immediately attracted attention from all parties.
Ji Xiuyun is a general who is seen in a favourable perspective by the whole empire.
He is young, promising and of extremely high military literacy. He is a good blade for the Empire to expand their territory. He has yielded one galaxy for the empire, known as the silver blade goddess of the Hintas.
Most importantly, in the era of the greater universe, human beings share an average life expectancy of more than three hundred years. Marshal Ji had just turned 90-year-old, he was in his prime and had a very bright future and prospects.
Under the pressure of the public, the military department had been silent for two days and finally could not stand it. A news officer was sent to respond to the rumours, however, since there was no evidence to prove that the Marshal had already been sacrificed, also a small group of the military was sent in the search and rescue towards the star where the marshal went missing.
Although the military has made such remarks, the people didn’t hope for much.
After all, the official said that the place where the raid occurred was near the border of the Main Star of the Thirteenth cosmos, and somewhere between the place before entering the atmosphere of the Main Star.
In other words, Marshal Ji was missing in the universe ahead of entering an inhabitable planet for humans.
Missing in the universe, despite the various radiation problems when the protective suit was not worn, the vacuum can be a major threat to kill a person in just a few minutes.
Even Marshal Ji, whose genetic level seems to be extremely high, also the commander of the “Troops of God of the War”, cannot change the fact that human beings are very vulnerable in the cosmic environment.
In the entire Hintas Empire, the girls who admired the hero and were holding an idol like feelings were caught in the dark clouds of gloom.
On the social platform of the Star Network, someone had even lit the candles to this excellent general who was very likely sacrificed in the universe.
The military was overwhelmed by these groups of people who were being so pessimistic!
The Marshal was not sacrificed yet!
The body has not been found yet!
Why can’t they expect something good out of it!
The confidence of the military was quickly broken only after one day.
Now, the media had sent out reports that were even crazier.
The fifth search and rescue team detected an abnormal gravity field at the border of 10th Galaxy!
The first search and rescue team recovered the remains of the spacecraft at the border of the 10th Galaxy, inspected the materials on the spot, and identified that it was the propeller ruins of the “God of War” spaceship of Marshal Ji!
The eighth search and rescue team found the armour fragments on the edge of the Tenth Galaxy and confirmed that it was the main energy source body of the Marshal’s armour “Silver Blade”!
The sixth team found the main body of the armour “Silver Blade” on the edge of the 10th Galaxy, with a damage level of 93%!
The third team successfully recovered the main body of the spaceship “God of War” on the border of the 10th Galaxy, with a damage degree of 70%. The body of the two guardians of the Marshal was found in the cabin!
Such news was passed back in succession, and the shadows that shrouded in the hearts of the people became more and more intense.
The thin thread of confidence within the military’s heart, who were still holding the ideas of luck, was broken into pieces.
Until the fifth day, the military received a message from the fourth search and rescue team through the internal contact of the military department, their hearts again restored the expectation of miracles.
The fourth team said that they searched for the remaining parts of the “God of War” where the safety compartment was placed. After the data was repaired, the six safety compartments above all showed a status of safe escape.
Even if, currently there is no discovery of the body of the Marshal, but there was still hope.
After a week of intense search and rescue, the military department of the Emperor Star received the news from the first legion patrolling with the Marshal.
Marshal was discovered and it was confirmed that he was in good status. Now the whole army has drawn up the camp and will return to the Emperor Star along with the Marshal in three days!
The military department was finally relieved, and on the second day, they were finally able to talk to the Marshal who had disappeared for almost a week.
A critical member of Ji Xiuyun’s troop who waited for a long time and reported the situation of the internal bureau after he disappeared.
“If possible, after you arrive at the Emperor Star, we wish you could show up in front of the media.” The military news officer looked at the projection in front of him and couldn’t help but be nervous.
“Okay.” The Marshal on the projection nodded, his voice was indifferent as if a piece of ice that had never been melted for a thousand years.
Different from the state of being peaceful and relaxed in front of Yue An, his face was too cold. When Ji Xiuyun was with the white cat alone, he just habitually stretched his face but didn’t expose too much of his emotions.
But in front of his peers and the public, he has always been firm and stern.
The Empire needs a sharp blade, the army needs a pillar, and the people need a road mark.
Someone needs to stand on the top, stand in the forefront, to lead them, protect them and give them a sense of security.
That’s the role Ji Xiuyun has as the Marshal.
The golden age of Marshal Kevin has passed, his physical condition is declining, and Ji Xiuyun was seen as the successor that everyone is optimistic about.
So he must be sharp, tough, and fierce.
This kind of energy, even if it is separated by a vast amount of time and space, even if it’s just a projection, made the military officers who have no battlefield fighting experience tremble their legs.
After a brief exchange, the Marshal took the lead in cutting off the communication.
The press officer sighed for a long time and eased his emotions for a while and without a pause, prepared to hold a press conference.
The missing Marshal of the Empire was not sacrificed, he will return, with the intact army!
This news excited the people, the media swarmed out and spent the whole day waiting in the vicinity of the address given by the military.
The Marshal, who was eagerly awaited by the people, was now undergoing a physical examination on his own battleship.
No one knows what Ji Xiuyun has experienced. They only know that the raid caused the Marshal to disappear, the battleship and the mech was of heavy loss, and they lost the lives of two guards.
Everyone was ready for the Marshal’s either to die in serious injury or even be sacrificed, but no one expected that Ji Xiuyun was in good condition when he sent the newsletter. When he was picked up by the surveillance ship, he was even more energetic than before and there was nothing wrong with him.
For the medical soldiers responsible for the body checking of the Marshal, they were amazed.
The dark wounds and old diseases on Ji Xiuyun’s body were gone, and the whole body was completely replenished.
If not all the authentication procedures prove that this was the Marshal himself, the medical personnel who came to check almost doubted that their beloved Marshal had been replaced.
