This time, Suo slightly restrained his arrogance, but he still asked in disbelief, “Lucius, aren’t you thinking too much?
“How can a newly born strange creature be so smart?”
Lucius slowly shook his head and spoke as if he knew everything, “On May 6th, the scarecrow appeared for the first time and massacred more than a hundred people in Lido village.
“That day, Teach and I accepted this case.
“Do you know what happened?”
Looking at Lucius’s expression, Suo could not help but have a bad premonition.
He could not help but swallow his saliva and ask, “What happened?”
As if affected by Suo’s emotions, the other team members grew serious and looked at Lucius.
Lucius, on the other hand, slowly glanced at the surrounding team members and said in a deep voice, “Teach and I couldn’t find any trace of him at all…”
Hearing this, the other team members finally realized the seriousness of the matter.
Lucius’s words did not matter to them, but Teach was different.
Although she was only an F-class member, her investigative skills were considered to be among the best in the Mage Association.
Unfortunately, because her strengths in other aspects were too weak, she did not have the chance to be promoted.
“No wonder you said the strange detection radar could not detect the scarecrow. Even Teach couldn’t find him?” the leader said softly with a grave expression as he touched his chin.
Lucious nodded gently and looked at the crowd again.
“Not only that, because this scarecrow seems to have the ability to create illusions, my brother and Kai took over the case that night.
“You all know what happened next.
“Not only did this guy kill my brother and Kai, he also recorded a video of the two of them dying and posted it on YouTube.”
When the team leader heard this, he noticed something was wrong and asked, “Wait, he posted a video on YouTube?
“He actually posted a video onto the internet?
“Also, can a video of a corpse be posted onto YouTube? Won’t it be deleted?”
As if recalling his brother’s death, Lucius took a few deep breaths.
The team members no longer sneered at him. Instead, they patiently waited for him to adjust his emotions.
After a moment, Lucius slowly said, “This is why I suspect that he has intelligence.
“Not only does this guy know how to upload videos onto the internet, he also knows how to use my brother’s phone.
“You should know more about the privileges of our Mage Association than I do.”
At this point, they all fell silent.
The members of the Mage Association did indeed have certain privileges granted by the government.
A mere site like YouTube did not have the authority to access all their operating records, let alone delete them.
However, what was even more terrifying was that this scarecrow actually had such a high level of intelligence.
It was no different from a human’s intelligence.
Not only that, he could even be considered to be a little bit smarter than many ordinary humans.
Although he did not know what the scarecrow’s goal was, it definitely did not have good intentions.
Moreover, it allowed him to successfully complete this series of operations.
Looking back now, this scarecrow was indeed not to be underestimated.
Thinking of this, the leader suddenly seemed to have thought of something. He slapped his thigh and said, “Oh no. I was so engrossed in the discussion that I actually forgot the important matter!”
Before he finished speaking, the leader snatched the radar from Lucius’s hand and looked at it with his eyes wide open.
However, when he looked at it, his heart skipped a beat.
The opponent’s position had remained unchanged.
It seemed like he really did abandon the radar and escape, just as Lucius said.
After returning the radar to Lucius, the leader sighed and said, “Forget it, this is all my fault.
“Since the opponent has already escaped, let’s go and retrieve Lucas’s belongings first.”
The team members nodded one after another. At the same time, a trace of guilt appeared in their hearts.
If they had listened to Lucius’s words earlier, they would have paid more attention to this scarecrow.
Things would not have turned out this way.
At this moment, Suo was also a little annoyed. He beat his chest and stomped his feet, “Damn it, if I knew this was going to happen, I definitely wouldn’t have been so careless.
“A mere E-class strange creature actually fooled all five of us.
“If I catch this guy, I’ll definitely…”
“What do you want to Do to me?”
! ! !
A cold voice with a hint of disdain appeared in everyone’s ears. Everyone was shocked and immediately looked toward the source of the voice.
The instant everyone raised their heads, a black sickle suddenly appeared!
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Instantly, the team members reacted. The four figures dodged the attack, fleeing from their original positions.
However, they heard a splat.
Blood splattered on the ground.
Covered in blood was a severed arm.
In his hand was a bloody strange detection radar.
“How are you? Can you hold on?”
At this moment, the leader of the crew was already ten meters away.
Beside him was Lucius, whose face was pale and covered in cold sweat.
Lucius held his broken arm with one hand and stared at the scarecrow. He parted his white lips and said coldly, “I’m fine. It’s just an arm.”
The leader’s expression was incredibly dark at this moment.
Although he reacted immediately and pulled Lucius away to dodge the attack, he was still one point too slow.
This caused Lucius’s arm to be chopped off.
The buzz-cut man was a very responsible person.
However, who would have thought that the scarecrow would not abandon the radar to escape.
Instead, he used it to make all the members of the team lower their guards, and thus, successfully completed his sneak attack!
At this moment, the team leader felt extremely guilty.
However, he turned this self-blame into an endless rage. He wanted to unleash it on the scarecrow in front of him who was sneering sinisterly.
“You, are you ready to accept my anger?”
The buzz-cut man’s words reached the scarecrow’s ears, word by word.
However, Flanders revealed a very happy expression and grinned.
“Anger? How interesting.
“Did you know? Anger’s the best seasoning for fear.
“After a person has completely exploded with anger, they will feel fear again.
“And this time, the fear will become incomparably delicious.”
At this moment, Flanders’s eyes looked up, revealing a reckless and uncontrollable expression that caused all of them to shiver involuntarily.
This scarecrow seemed to be completely different from the other creatures!
[Fear points: +50.]
After receiving this message, Flanders immediately knew the source of this harvest.
The four people present, including Lucius who had lost an arm, were all looking at him angrily.
Only a young man in red robes looked surprised.
“So, it’s you?”
Flanders turned to look at Suo.
“There’s a delicious fear in you, hehehe.”
