Galactic Dark Net - Chapter 125
Chapter 125: The Power of Faith! Burst of the Void. (Part One)
Four days later, in the Oblivion Realm galactic sector.
Overall, the Oblivion Realm was a very strange place. First of all, it was an enclave, and it was a full 3-day voyage from the nearest habitable planet in the Milky Way. In between, there was the galactic wilderness filled with dangerous undercurrents.
But when Han's Falcon class frigate crossed the wilderness, the scene suddenly changed. 17 habitable planets appeared immediately on the radar detector, and the farthest distance between two was no more than one standard transition portal away.
Although the Oblivion Realm was far less crowded than those core downtown areas in the Milky Way, it was a part of the galactic wilderness, and acted like an oasis in the desert, sheltering all the people that lived here.
The automatic navigation system led Han to the most remote habitable 17thplanet. Precisely, the landing point was Pathless Origin's backyard.
Thinking about it, Pathless must be really rich. His house covered acres of land and was surrounded by jungle. The grey buildings on his property gave off an ancient aura. Aside from it being a bit too remote, it was actually a very elegant manor castle.
In addition to Han's frigate, there were also 2 space shuttles parked in the yard. They were lightweight spacecraft with 4 seats, it must be Pathless and Night Walker's way of transportation. Before coming here Han already knew although the two were neighbors, they didn't live on the same planet.
Night Walker lives on the most prosperous 1st habitable planet. Its name seemed to be Tarim Map, and Pathless lived on the most remote 17th planet called Silent Hill.
Han got off the ship and saw Night Walker and Pathless. Although Han had seen them countless number of times in the virtual system and real-time communication channel, he was still very excited to see those two today.
’’Two teachers, sorry to have kept you waiting.’’ Han smiled and bowed.
Night Walker was elegant, and Pathless was just cold as ****. The two old men standing together and the contrast in their temperament was even more significant.
’’Don't have to be so polite, just call me Old Black, call him Old Monster. ’’Night Walker laughed and said. He told Han to call Pathless Old Monster and Pathless didn't seem to mind at all. Like usual, his face was cold and showed no emotion.
’’I brought you guys some gifts;they are all from Earth.’’ Han laughed and pointed at his Lunar Mark.
’’Is it food? Old Mo often complimented the delicacies on Earth.’’ Night Walker curiously asked.
’’Nope.’’ Han shook his head and said, ’’I left too quickly, although Earth's food is good but it takes a lot of time to prepare, so I couldn't bring any with me. Oh right, how's Old Mo doing?’’
’’Still as usual, leading a group of robots and going everywhere trying to find the so-called Godly tier equipment. In fact, isn't godly tier equipment just some equipment used by warlords? Old Mo insisted that there was a type of unique weapon in this world, it contains a fighting spirit inside, and only weapons with that kind of spirit can be considered a true godly tier equipment.’’ Night Walker laughed and said.
Han, Night Walker, and Pathless walked into the old castle. It was very dark inside.
Pathless obviously didn't know how to do chores, things were lying everywhere. The three sat down on a sofa and Han felt something a little hard under his butt. He reached in with his hand and pulled out a book.
’’On the Topic of Lighting Damage Abilities in Water.’’ Han read the title of the book.
Night Walker laughed and pointed at Pathless, ’’This old monster is a martial art addict, there's no other books in his house. They are all about martial arts and tactical theories. In the back there's a four stories tall library, and inside there are all ancient books.’’
Pathless said as if it's nothing special, ’’Aren't you the same? Pharmacology books fill your entire basement;the amount of precious ancient books you own is not less than mine.’’
With a sudden change in atmosphere, Pathless sternly said, ’’Han, welcome to the Oblivion Realm. All these years, Old Black and I were about to rot here. This time you coming actually brought in a lot of fun for us.’’
’’But I must tell you the truth. The Oblivion Realm is a very dangerous place, Old Black and I offended someone in the Milky Way and we were out of options, that's why we came here for seclusion.’’
’’The reason we came here is because there's no other place in Milky Way other than the Oblivion Realm that dared to shelter us. There's a powerful individual here secluding himself from the Milky Way, and only he dares to shelter and protect us.’’
’’But this type of sheltering isn't without conditions. The moment we set foot into this Oblivion Realm, we cannot leave here, or else our protector will kick us out eternally and not allow us to enter ever again.’’
’’Of course you are not here to seek for protection, so you aren't affected by this limit and can leave whenever. But you should note that on this 17th Planet in Oblivion Realm, there are heinous outlaws everywhere, and even the roadside hawker selling sweet tea can very likely be a killer in the past that once dominated the Milky Way.’’
’’So, during your time here at the Oblivion Realm, you have to be very careful. The Milky Way Law doesn't apply here. What we have here are rules set by the protector. The moment you break one of the rules, not even Old Black nor I can save you.’’
Han was immediately shocked, desperate criminals from the entire Milky Way comes to the Oblivion Realm to seek asylum? Even the street vendor could likely be an infamous killer in the past? So this place was amazing!
Nodding, Han said, ’’Got it. In fact, two teachers can be assured. I'm not here for sightseeing tours but to learn real skills. I simply don't want to know nothing about the outside world.’’
’’Good!’’ Pathless said in a serious tone.
Pathless was a very strict old man, didn't talk much, but Night Walker actually had a very engaging conversation with Han. The three had something to eat, and they also drank a few glasses of fruit alcohol drinks specially brewed in the Oblivion Realm.

After the meal, Pathless took Han to a circular room that was 500 meters in diameter deep inside the castle. The floor and walls were all forged by high-intensity tritanium, it was probably where Pathless trained.
’’Han, in the past I only watched you train in video. Now I want to see it with my own eyes. Just practice the Star Breaker fist I taught you. As for an opponent, there is none, rely purely on your imagination.’’ Pathless gave very brief instructions.
Han nodded, then closed his eyes and thought about the enemies that he faced in his life. If they were here at the moment, what kind of moves would be required to deal with them?
Han smiled, his body suddenly turned upside down from the side, then from under the arms at a very strange and unexpected angle, Han threw out a curved punch!
They only saw Han's body begin to fly up spinning vigorously, extremely flamboyantly!
Night Walker and Pathless observed closely from the corner. Night Walker shook his head and asked, ’’Old Monster, why didn't you find Han an opponent?’’
Pathless said in disagreement, ’’Han never learned the traditional martial art and directly learned the forbidden techniques. What are forbidden techniques? They are martial arts breaking out of all the shackles, Han already learned the Void part, but if he wants to learn the 6 paths of void, it will be impossible without a good imagination.’’
’’So, right now I'm examining both Han's techniques and also whether he has the talent to learn forbidden martial arts.’’
Night Walker nodded slowly as if he understood a part of what Pathless just said.
On the other hand, although it was a battle without an opponent, Han's enthusiasm became gradually lit up.
Pathless was indeed a pro, but he didn't completely know Han yet.
Han never lacked imagination, but there was also something on Han that many people didn't have!
As someone from Earth, ever since Han was little, his memory was filled with fear. Fear for the outer-space civilizations, fear for Earth's safety, and fear for the constant possibility of being colonized.
Although Clark (TL: due to all the requests, we are changing the name from Ke Lake to Clark, comment if you object to this change) had once brought hope to the people on Earth, but he also personally turned this hope into despair.
In the ten years' time Clark was missing, everyone on Earth was living under the shadow of darkness, desperately hoping for Clark's return, desperate for being able to live on in freedom and peace. But, the reality was very cruel, living everyday was suffering for people on Earth.
Neighbors, classmates, in Han's memory everyone on Earth had a darkened face, laughter was rare and people never wanted to talk too much about future. Even the sky was usually dark and gloomy, like people's faces.
These things were not what Han wanted at all!
Ever since Han acquired super power, his faith never wavered!
Han wouldn't allow Earth to become a colony, he wouldn't allow his people to live in despair! He wanted to see smiles on children's faces!
It was okay that Han already spent his childhood in shadow and despair.
But letting Earth's next generation and the generation after that to continue living in fear and despair?
Han wasn't going to agree even if it costed his life!
A soldier that couldn't even protect his home was not worthy to be called a true soldier!
Han's goal was very clear, and that was to become strong! Become stronger! Until one day he could protect his own home!
Han didn't care how long it will take to achieve this goal, how much suffering he has to endure, and how many lives needed to be sacrificed.
If Earth's existence can only be protected at the expense of the entire Milky Way, then let the Milky Way go to hell!
If Han was just a modest spark, then the only reason for him to continue living on is to brighten the Earth that gave birth to him and raised him! Until his life completely burned out!
That's the power of faith!
When Han injected the power of faith into his forbidden art, everything changed.
The sound of wind began howling inside the training room!
The Forbidden art Six Paths of Void leveled up in Han's hand. The natural descent Demonic Strike's unique unconventional attacking style was still here, but an indescribable murderous scent emerged among the attacks!
To achieve the goal, both gods and devils could be slayed, both heaven and ground could be murdered! Han can pay any price!
This was the most steadfast faith in Han's heart!
Even Night Walker who didn't understand too much about martial art became gradually stunned by the belief and murderous scent Han revealed. With his eyes wide open, he asked in amazement, ’’This is the Void, the Void part of the 6 Paths of the Void?’’
’’It should be.’’
’’Should be? Old Monster, what did you really teach Han! Don't lie to me, this is definitely not Void!’’
Pathless's expression became very complicated too, he let out a long sigh, and with a hoarse voice he said, ’’I thought it was Void, but now, I'm not too sure anymore.’’
Pathless told Han to freely play with his imagination, but Han actually gave him a result he totally didn't expect.
Void was a martial art without any techniques, it was purely based on the soldier's understanding and interpretation.
In the hands of Han, Void was completely sublimated.
