Chapter 294: Invisibility (Part one)
There’s a kind of deterrence called killing the chicken to warn the monkeys (idiom for punishing someone as an example to others to not do the same thing), and Xu Cheng just needed to first take care of the ones that were jumping around the most.
He got a room at a ghetto motel, and on the wall were posted photos of five people that were going to be the targets of this operation. These five were all rich young masters that had been eyeing his wife, and they also saw Xu Cheng as a thorn in their eyes. If possible, they wouldn’t hesitate to kill Xu Cheng and take Lin Chuxue for themselves, and the list included Prince Will.
Xu Cheng tore off Prince Will’s photo and sneered, “Don’t think that just because you are royalty, I don’t dare to do anything. We will wait and see tonight.”
Then, he took out a stack of documents from his coat which had Jacob’s research findings, which included descriptions of the major genes he found in Xu Cheng’s body. There were also more hidden ones that weren’t activated yet, stored away by the water bear genes. He really had to thank the water bear genes for helping him survive the mutations.
Touching the scars left on his chest, he exclaimed, “It’s quite a shame that I didn’t get to see this heal.”
Then, he continued going through the notes.
Jacob said before that as the water bear genetics were waking up, it would begin recomposing all the genes and begin the fusion process.
The first fusion Jacob noticed was that the genes of cats and eagles were completely integrated. He also found genes partaking the fusion process, but he couldn’t identify which was which. He also wrote: [There should be a period of pain whenever different genes are close to finishing integrating.]
When Xu Cheng read that, he didn’t really take it to heart. However, when he went to the washroom, he suddenly felt a sharp pain in his heart. He immediately collapsed onto the ground, and he just felt every inch of his muscles and his heart and his brain were all feeling cramp-like pain!
This feeling took him right back to the period when he fell into a coma after coming back from the mission with Li Wei and Luo Yi. It was exactly that kind of pain.
It was a feeling of wanting to die to be liberated, and veins began popping out on Xu Cheng’s face and neck.
Xu Cheng threw a punch onto the ground in pain, and the tiles were all shattered. This kind of pain almost made him faint, as he felt as if someone was peeling his skin off of his muscles. When his eyes were falling out of focus, he felt as if he saw the bones in his hand. Xu Cheng initially thought he accidentally turned on penetrating vision, and that was why he could see through his skin.
However, when he felt a bit better and climbed back up and saw himself in the mirror, he could directly see his spine, while all the skin and muscles were gone!
Xu Cheng was shocked and he subconsciously touched his neck, but he could feel that his neck was all intact and everything felt normal!
He was shocked. And then immediately, the remaining bones were also slowly disappeared in the mirror. In the end, there was only his clothes and pants that seemed to be just floating in the air in front of the mirror.
After Xu Cheng took off all of his clothes, he noticed that his body couldn’t be found in the mirror at all anymore. But, Xu Cheng could still feel that his body was there.
