Chapter 1121: A Familiar Aura
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Jiang Fei and the two others moved quickly through a condensed form of light energy. After only two minutes, the Dragon God’s clan members appeared in front of them.
The mutants who sided with Dragon God’s clan had been badly beaten up. Most of them were left with half of their bodies. Fortunately, these were androids that could still continue fighting despite the loss of half of their bodies.
“You’re finally here!” Bennette Straz sighed in relief when he saw Jiang Fei. In actual fact, they had been engaging in the battle for nearly a day. Their original group of fifty members was now left with thirty. If Jiang Fei did not show up, the Dragon God and the rest of his clan members would all die in battle.
“Where’s the Core of Life?” Jiang Fei did not immediately let the two ladies engage in battle.
“Alright!” Although Bennette Straz felt a little troubled, he knew that Jiang Fei would not help them unless he handed the Core of Life over.
“Please allow me to introduce you to our leader.” Dragon God brought Jiang Fei over to a Unknown who had a cloak over his head.
“How should I address you?” Jiang Fei asked with a masculine tone. He did not want to sound too polite as the other person might be tempted to take advantage of him. After all, Jiang Fei was now their savior.
“You may address me as Z0-11,” a robotic voice replied.
“Alright then. Let’s initiate the trade.” Jiang Fei nodded. As there was a large cloak between them, Jiang Fei could not even see the outline of the person’s body. He could only detect the fact that Z0-11 also had a humanoid structure. However, Jiang Fei could not help but sense a familiar aura from him.
Despite that, Jiang Fei could not quite point out what the familiar aura reminded him of.
“Sure, but there were too many energy crystals for us to carry around. We’ll hand them over to you after these fellows are defeated,” Z0-11 replied.
“Alright.” Jiang Fei nodded. He was fine with getting the energy crystals later. Even if they did not hand the energy crystals over, Jiang Fei could work with the Martial Art Alliance to retrieve them. The Core of Life was his primary concern.
“Here you go!” A lean arm was extended from behind the cloak. The man-made skin appeared exactly like a human’s. Clearly, the Unknown was made in a humanoid form as well. However, why did it still have the original robotic voice?
Although Jiang Fei did not quite understand the rationale behind this, he did not hesitate to accept the Core of Life from the Mystic.
“0542, check if it’s legitimate.” Jiang Fei commanded after taking the Core of Life from the Unknown.
“Scanning complete. It is the legitimate Core of Life,” 0542 answered confidently.
“Very well.” Jiang Fei nodded satisfactorily. However, he did not notice that 0542 had sent a secondary energy wave whilst scanning the Core of Life.
“Ehh?” Ariel frowned. Although 0542 was able to hide the action from Jiang Fei, it could not hide it from Ariel.
As if 0542 had sensed that Ariel might have picked up on something, it immediately terminated the energy wave.
Meanwhile, Ariel frowned as she looked at Jiang Fei. She had picked up a vague electromagnetic wave which had been emitted from Jiang Fei. However, it was very weak and, just as she was getting ready to investigate where it came from, it disappeared.
Thereafter, Ariel immediately emitted her own energy to scan Jiang Fei’s body in an attempt to find if there was any hidden spyware placed on him. However, she did not find anything of that sort.
What exactly was that? She thought. While Ariel did not immediately relate the incident to 0542, she started paying closer attention. If there was any suspicious energy waves being emitted, she would immediately track it down.
“Bella, do it!” After obtaining the Core of Life, Jiang Fei nodded at Bella.
“Okay!” Bella closed her eyes as her body started emitting strong energy.
Everyone, including Jiang Fei, Ariel and a few other Unknowns, began to back away as they sensed it.
It was not a form of actively controlled energy. Instead, it was the Power of Berserk that emitted from Bella’s body. Everyone could see how terrifyingly powerful Bella was at the moment.
As soon as Bella entered the Berserk state, Jiang Fei could vividly sense that the surrounding light rays had come to a halt. Clearly, the opponents had felt Bella’s might as well.
Right then, Bella charged into the sky as streams of blood-red lightning emitted from her body. These insanely powerful lightning blasts were immediately fired at the opposing Unknowns.
Fortunately, Bennette Straz had sent his own members’ aura to Jiang Fei earlier. Otherwise, they would be the first to get hit by Bella.
As a series of explosions could be heard, all of the Unknowns that were struck by the lightning blasts were instantly vaporized. It was impossible to repair them as their core chips were also destroyed altogether.
In the blink of an eye, twenty out of the hundred Unknowns were annihilated. Moreover, none of the energy blasts from them could even reach Bella as they were instantly vaporized by the blood-colored mist around Bella’s body.
“Something’s not right!” Jiang Fei frowned. Bella’s powers from the Berserk state she entered this time seemed much more powerful than he had imagined. That must have meant that the amount of Valium being used had also increased significantly.
“We have discovered a destructive being!”
“The target cannot be resisted!”
“Retreat! Retreat! Retreat!”
The opposing Unknowns instantly decided after witnessing Bella’s first wave of attacks that there was no way they could defeat her. Hence, they immediately began to retreat.
“Darn it! Z0-11, you traitor! You actually colluded with the humans!” A roar could be heard from afar.
“Hehe! Traitor? You are the least qualified person to say that!” Z0-11 snorted.
Right then, a white light flashed. Clearly, the enemy Unknowns had already started retreating.
“Bella, stop! Don’t chase them!” Jiang Fei called out urgently. He knew that Bella was fully capable of trapping the enemies who were trying to escape. However, he was also aware that Bella had used far more energy than she was supposed to. If he did not make her leave the Berserk state in advance, she could very well put herself in danger due to the lack of Valium.
After hearing Jiang Fei’s voice, there was a slight ripple in Bella’s reddened eyes. She struggled to suppress the urge to kill all of the Unknowns. However, one part of her was also keen to follow the instructions of the familiar voice. Although her conscience was slightly affected by the power which overtook her, she recognized Jiang Fei’s voice and knew very well that he would not hurt her.
