Chapter 173 - Your Father I, Will Hunt Some Birds
“Did you really have to take the matter to this extent?” There was no point in Bianca hiding her reluctance. She was already unwilling the day her father explained to her what he wanted. But there were times when one is helpless to act, and there were times when it is too late for regrets.
“He is a large obstacle for our future. Within Europe, the Vatican and the Dark Council already repressed us to the point that we can barely breathe. Since now a Lei Yu character appeared before us, he’ll have to become the sacrifice. Bianca, you will eventually forget these emotions over time. Don’t become overly concerned about it or else you will push yourself into a deep pit of pain. You understand me right?” Dr. Tony lightly patted Bianca’s shoulder as he said this to her.
“Sigh~” Bianca didn’t know how to respond and didn’t want to say anything more. She turned around and continued to stare at the monitors once again.
Lei Yu suddenly stepped backwards and avoided one of the three mutant’s full-on attack. The instant when his opponent didn’t have any time to recover his posture , Lei Yu reversed his footsteps and bombarded the guy’s head with his fist that was mixed with a strong power of lightning.
“Snap!” A crisp and clear sound could be heard and everyone knew what caused it. One could see that the burly guy who received Lei Yu’s heavy blow crashed to the ground. The skin on his head was still intact but the interior of his skull and his brain were now a puddle of mush. The distorted shape of the head was quite a horrifying sight to behold.
Lei Yu withdrew his fist and coldly stared at the remaining two. These two mutants glanced at each other and didn’t dare to rush forth anymore. The destructive power Lei Yu had was too great; it wasn’t something they could handle. Just when they were hesitating, a voice sounded in their mind. Suddenly, the eyes on the two become cold and their faces became emotionless.
At the same time, their bodies started to change. Their personal aura started rising off the surface of their body - one was black and one was red.
Lei Yu vigilantly took two steps back. The two mutants were clearly being manipulated and they were undergoing some type of genetic changes unique to themselves.
The two colors black and red started to combine with each other in the air as if they were fusing into one.¹ Lei Yu didn’t dare to be careless and he wasn’t going to sit still while this was happening. If he allowed these two to complete their change, who knows what would happen. Acting decisively, Lei Yu burst forth like an arrow. He had made the right choice - once he threw out a vicious attack at one of them, he didn’t get to complete the transformation. In an instant, his entire skeletal structure was shattered by Lei Yu and his body started to emit a burnt smell.
But when he wanted to attack to disrupt the remaining one, it was impossible now since he was already exuding a red colored light aura. The last mutant had already completed his unique transformation.
His mouth protruded outwards that appeared like a hard object, and the corners of his mouth slightly bent downward. Wasn’t this the form of a bird species?
Sure enough, suddenly his back grew out two wings. Although the color of his feathers were brown, the red colored light aura backdrop gave him a shadow of the divine bird known as the Phoenix. Lei Yu knew that this mutant wasn’t a real Phoenix, it was just an effect brought on by the formula of the mutagen.
Lei Yu gathered strength at his back leg and suddenly struck out. he moment before contact, Lei Yu’s facial expression suddenly changed.
“Rip~” Lei Yu was forced backwards. A fireball had been spewed out of the mutant’s mouth which directly struck Lei Yu’s chest. The hot energy made Lei Yu think of one person - Bianca!
Lei Yu ignored the heat on his chest since it didn’t create any fatal wounds. After quickly charging his internal energy, Lei Yu’s body looked like it was covered in a spider web of shimmering purple lightning.
Without hesitating, Lei Yu once again performed a series of continuous attacks. The second time contact landed on his body; Lei Yu was even more surprised. With his current speed, how was it possible that he was unable to avoid the mutant’s attack? Could it be that it had a homing or a tracking effect? That wasn’t right. Lei Yu couldn’t feel any presence of the fireball, it was as if it didn’t exist.
Lei Yu quickly understood something and made up his mind. He couldn’t rely on his instincts in this fight, he had to rely on his eyes. He was going to use his eyes to determine trajectory of the mutants attack and then avoid its path.
With this decision, Lei Yu concentrated all his energy into one area. Even if he was struck by his opponent this time, his reciprocal attack would still take the mutant’s life.
Of course, Lei Yu omitted one thing, which happened to be the most crucial one!
Lei Yu’s figure was like a ghost while dodging around left and right. He did that in order to distract his opponent and prevent him from locking down his position. At this moment, the mutant didn’t make a single move as if he knew his fireball attack would no longer be able to hit its target. The mutant just quietly stood still waiting for Lei Yu’s arrival.
Cracking the ground below his feet, Lei Yu burst forth towards his opponent. His hand had already condensed a frightening amount of energy and any object he collided with would only have one outcome - getting completely crushed.
The mutant still hadn’t moved yet and Lei Yu’s pace didn’t slow at all. But once Lei Yu’s fist that was filled with lightning energy was about to land on the mutant, he only saw the mutant’s mouth curving into a strange smile before he shot up into the air.
Lei Yu overlooked this point, he completely forgot about the wings behind the mutant’s back which allowed him to fly! Maybe there was still a slight trauma from the time he fought against the Vampire Prince, but Lei Yu really hated those who could could fly. His attacks were greatly restricted against those with the flying abilities. Lei Yu could only rely on his internal energy to perform long-distance attacks, but those consumed an enormous amount of energy.
Lei Yu’s ordinary attacks allowed him to recycle the unused power. But when he used abilities that left his body, the power would fly out and his energy source would be continuously depleted.
Lei Yu’s brows were tightly knitted together. Wanting to beat this mutant was actually quite easy, but who knew how many more mutants would appear afterwards? Ten? One hundred? Or maybe even a thousand?! If he consumed too much energy here, then the consequences would be disastrous for him later on.
Moreover, there was still the fearsome existence of Dr. Tony who was an Ultimate Rank Mutant. A single mistake and his life would end here, so what should he do? It wasn’t wrong of him to impulsively rush to this underground base, but failure would be inevitable if he didn’t quickly come up with something right now.
Lei Yu simply no longer attacked and was retreating a few steps backward. He then struck a heavy blow to the ground creating jagged cracks everywhere, causing uneven pieces of concrete to rise up into the air and scatter about. Lei Yu picked up one of these pieces of concrete; “Shit, since you can fly, then your father I will hunt some birds!”
As he finished saying that, Lei Yu suddenly threw out the concrete he was holding. It flew off similar to the speed of a meteor, but it also had a bit of internal energy mixed in. Lei Yu could still tolerate the small output of energy here so he wasn’t too worried about this.
The mutant flying in the air didn’t expect Lei Yu to do this and couldn’t dodge in time; his left shoulder was hit by the piece of concrete. The concrete shattered while the mutant felt a burst of numbness at his shoulder. His left wing couldn’t even flap for a bit causing him to almost fall down. But after a short period, his body adjusted itself before he regained his balance in the air.
