At the bottom of the platform, Gradier Xanatus scrutinized the place from behind while the MBO officers checked the different laboratories within.
The whole place looked a bit deserted but some pieces of equipment could still be seen lying around. It looked like it had been in use until a while ago.
"Its empty sir,"
One of them approached him while voicing out.
Gradier Xanatus looked around with a suspicious expression.
Ripples suddenly spread forth from his position.
Transparent figures in blue began to appear one after the other. From what one could see, these transparent figures were mostly clad in Laboratory uniforms and were evacuating the underground base as quickly as they could.
The MBO officers in the background watched this play out with focused expressions. One of the figures phased through an MBO officer and picked up some things on a lab table before also leaving.
"They couldn't have gone far. Spread out and find them," Gradier Xanatus commanded as the blue figures disappeared in the next instant.
It turned out he had just used a bloodline ability that granted him the power to reanimate scenes that happened within a particular location in a particular time frame.
It was similar to a scanning device the MBO had access to but Gradier Xanatus's was more powerful.
"Sir you have to see this," One of the MBO officers who stayed behind voiced out.
He directed Gradier Xanatus to the end of the underground base towards a corridor that led to an isolated area.
Gradier Xanatus arrived in front of the thirty feet tall door with the sign "/'[[]]'" carved on it.
The door happened to have cracks all over with a wide hole by the side which made it easy for anyone to get access into the isolated area.
Gradier Xanatus stepped in with the MBO officer into this dark space enshrouded in multiple layers of fog.
"Why is it so dark in here?" Gradier Xanatus wondered out loud.
It was unknown how Yung Jo had built such a space but it definitely seemed larger and darker than it was supposed to be.
Multiple orbs of light floated out from the MBO officer beside Gradier Xanatus.
The space beamed up a little which granted them the chance to see the space better.
There was a massive darkened crater on the floor with cracks, spreading black lines that extended as far as the eyes could see.
"We believe this is the precise location where the earthquake was triggered," The officer voiced out as they arrived in front of the massive crater.
"I sense lingering chaotic time and space energy... something happened here," Gradier Xanatus said with a suspicious low tone.
A thought suddenly appeared in his mind which caused his face to lit up with worry. He brought out his device and dialled a number.
No matter how many times he tried calling, the device kept displaying Unreachable.
'I think the kid is in trouble,' Gradier Xanatus thought as he turned around with speed.
"Sir? Where are you going?" The MBO officer in front asked with a confused look after noticing his expression.
"Emergency, I need to go now. Handle the rest and send me reports later," He instructed while walking out of the isolated space.
Gradier Xanatus didn't waste time in getting out of the underground secret base. He instantly got into a hover car and drove out of this area with speed.
A few minutes later he arrived in front of a forty-storey building with a dog head statue in front. Gradier Xanatus went in right away and headed for the second to the last floor.
Bam! Bam! Bam!
"Kid are you in there?"
Bam! Bam! Bam!...
Bam! Bam! Bam!
"Are you okay?"
Bam! Bam! Bam!
"Kid? I'm coming in now!"
Gradier Xanatus raised his right arm which was covered in a bright blue glow and swung it forward with force.
The door along with part of the walls on the sides got blasted forward, causing the entire building to vibrate intensely.
Gradier Xanatus ignored the blaring alarm going off after his forceful access into the apartment. He got in and looked around.
"There's no one here," He voiced out with a worried tone.
Gradier Xanatus was at loss on what to do at the moment.
'Where could he be?' He wondered internally.
A thought appeared in his mind and he turned around with speed before heading out of the apartment.
Gustav stared at a blue-faced cute girl whose face was above his. He was laying on grassy ground and a clear blue sky was far above their heads.
"Huh where am I and who are you?" Gustav voiced out loud as he pushed her face back and sat up.
"Go back. You have to go back," The blue-faced girl who was standing above him earlier voiced out as she stood to her feet.
Surprisingly she was over eight feet tall and Gustav seemed like a shorty beside her.
She was clad in a brown robe with slits by the side and yellow patterns.
Gustav looked around and all he could see was plain grasslands with a few high hills and then clear skies.
Gustav tried activating God Eyes but it didn't work.
"Huh?" He exclaimed with a look of confusion and tried activating God Eyes again.
To his surprise, it still didn't work. Gustav decided to try another ability but for reasons unknown, it didn't work.
'Hover,' Gustav tried to fly but to no avail.
"I feel... normal... weak... what's going on?" Gustav voiced out with a look of confusion.
"You have to go back," The blue eight feet tall girl voiced out with a tone of urgency again.
"Go back? Where is this? Where am I?" Gustav asked again.
"You're in his yard... you have to leave before he finds out you're here!" She voiced out again.
"Before who finds out I'm here? Who is he? And where is here?" Gustav was in so much confusion as he threw out a series of questions.
Suddenly a thick cloud of darkness began to gather in the northern skies.
