Chapter 71: Ares

At the Holotbale they saw a fleet of ships stationed around the Station. With the station looking like a huge ring, with wings made from solar panels on one side, and heat sinks on the other. The ring itself was something that Marcus was able to convince the council to do. A gate that can allow them to transport whole spaceships back to his world.

When he first learned about the invasion, he was determined to get stronger and get back in time to help fight the Demons. But then he remembered where he is. And this gave him an idea of what to do. Even with Es's strong disapproval he went back to the Black Whale he used the SC to buy items and then trade them for information, and in the last four years, he was able to get a good idea how the invasion was progressing. Right now, the invasion was in its last stages, and the humanity was on the defense.

At first, the council didn't want to agree to build a gate so big; they said that the danger outweighs, the benefits, but after making many big promises, and many talks with the council he was able to convince them to construct this huge gate. Marcus gave them what they wanted the most. And it was to win the cold war with the Dar Planet. While Professor Johnson was slowly developing the warp drive, it would still take him years to just finish the design.

Marcus gave them the finished blueprint of a working warp drive, and with this huge advantage. The der planet had no other choice but to surrender. They can't fight an enemy that can show up at any time, from what is nowhere. After few skirmishes the war was over, the casualties were minimal.

When Marcus was working on all of this, Mei kept going to school, and after three years she took an official position of a representative of their world. There was no other choice, while Marcus was smart, he wasn't like Mei. Able to talk people into doing whatever she wanted them to do. And its thanks to her making connections she was able to speed up the construction of the gate. She was a true mastermind. Thinking back Marcus should've given her the control much earlier.

As for them becoming a couple, about a year after they got to this world, it clicked. And from then they somehow are still a couple. But with Marcus constantly moving from one space station to another, and Mei trying to make as many connections as possible in this world, so for the last year, they didn't have much contact.

But this ends all today; they are going back to their world. And to save the humanity, they are also bringing an army. This was Marcus's idea. To bring people and weapons from this world to their world and win a war that they are losing. The demon army may be powerful, but one accurate orbit earth strike can destroy them all.

But with Marcus's strength, there shouldn't be many that can rival him in any world.

Name: Marcus Xolotl


Health: Perfect.

Aptitude: MAX

Agility: 1212.5

Physical Strength: 1239.3

Core Energy: 6238

Everlasting Soma Reserves: 508002

His stats were equal to a Stage Seven Divinity Establishment expert. In both energy and physical strength. As for the stats, they were changed in an update about two years ago. Agility is how well he can move, this includes speed and flexibility, Physical Strengths covers all of the aspects that are influencing the strength he can execute. Easy enough.

While he was equal to a stage seven expert Mei was only a step behind him, and with her hard work she was equal to a stage six expert. He also bought a few things in the shop for the SC he saved up, one was the same bracelet that he had and a serum that will artificially give Mei a regenerative constitution. With this she was very close behind him in physical strength as well.

"Where is professor Johnson? We are leaving soon." Mei asked while she was keeping a look at the current situation of the spaceships. The one they will be boarding soon already sent a shuttle to pick them up. They will be traveling on W.S. Ares, the most advanced ship in the whole fleet, created for the whole purpose of traveling to a different dimension. Equipped with the Second-generation warp drive and an Orbit-Ground Rail gun that uses tungsten rods as ammunition.

This was one of the creations that he and Professor Johnson designed. It will be escorted by five older units across the gate. "He is doing the last diagnostics of the Space Wrapper. He will come here when he is finished."

"… Marcus. Will you miss this world?" Suddenly Mei asked.

"If everything goes as planned, we will be able to come back anytime we want. But you know that." If their plan works well, in the next two years, they will build a gate on the other side as well and when they connect the two, consistent travel between the dimensions will be possible.

"What if it doesn't work?"

"… It will I can promise you that."

Their situation was very weird. The two worlds were very different and there is a chance that this will cause war between them, but Marcus already gave them technology to block gates from being made on their territory, and with it they can easily cut themselves out. If they have to decide which world will they chose?

"Let's not think about that yet. We are still here, and you were able to talk on somewhat equal terms with the leaders of this world. As long as we can make our world agree to all of the terms, there will be no problem. And you know how our world works, if they don't agree we will beat them up until they do."

"Right…" with a smile Mei looked at Marcus, it was time to go back home.
