Chapter 226: Brother Black Umbrella, Today I Will Show You The Harsh Reality!
Out of excitement, everyone in the room stood up and cheered.
These were people who had a high social status and were experienced and knowledgeable. Given that they were so excited, Lin Yao must have given them a huge surprise.
Lin Yao had indeed given them a lot of surprises. At present, the meeting room was already playing footage of Jing’an Lake. It was not the scene outside the mirror space but straight inside the mirror space.
This was due to the combination of technology and spirit energy. After the emergence of people with talents and the freaks, there had been a period of time when humans found that ordinary cameras were not useful anymore. Invisibility, fog, enchantments, and so on could make ordinary cameras fail to operate.
However, if there were challenges, there would also be progress. Soon, the country assembled a group of top scientists and developed cameras with the rune of the Sky Eye.
These cameras could see through camouflage and invisibility and even penetrate the space mezzanine and enchantment. Although these cameras needed to be inscribed with runes and were expensive, the satellites in the sky were built with such runes. The images gathered in this meeting room were taken with the Sky Eye in the starry sky, penetrating the mirror space and directly illuminating it inside.
Through the Sky Eye satellites, these big bosses discovered that the scene in the mirror space was also taking place by Jing’an Lake. Several freaks and a group of corpse servants were attacking Lin Yao and the others underwater.
Yes, they were no longer in an apartment building but in a lake.
A few minutes ago, Lin Yao had used the power of wind, rain, thunder, and lightning to drive the black umbrella forward, using it as a shield and partner to bombard the enemies.
The two of them were “good teammates”, and several freaks were killed instantly before they eventually approached the core of the mirror freak.
Naturally, it would not sit and wait for its death. After realizing that the situation was disadvantageous for it, it split another mirror in a bid to transfer Lin Yao and the black umbrella away.
However, Lin Yao had not triggered the rules, and the rain water around the black umbrella made the images in the mirror blurry.
This made it impossible to transfer Lin Yao and the umbrella freak. Instead, Lin Yao used thunder and lightning to disperse countless split mirrors. The rooms with traps and the freaks that had been imprisoned were almost wiped out.
Under the circumstances, the mirror freak used its ultimate big move, as it would not accept defeat, changing the world instead.
Well, this was simply based on the principle that the mirror could reflect the surrounding environment when pulling people into it. The environment where Lin Yao was located had thus changed from an apartment building to a lake.
Lin Yao, who had been moving forward, thinking that he was about to win, was shocked when he discovered that he’d suddenly appeared on the water surface.
‘Ss… The world is changing. Is the mirror freak so powerful? Then why didn’t it… It must be the restrictions. There must be a restriction that does not let the mirror space change the environment without killing the human beings that it pulled into the mirror each time. Since the others and I are not dead, the mirror freak cannot pull more people into the mirror or change the environment.’
The Agile Mind talent enabled Lin Yao to understand the reason in an instant. As for why the environment could be changed in spite of the restrictions, it had to be because the people it had killed in the past enabled it to fulfill the requirements and lift some restrictions. However, the world still had a strict limitation on it, and the restrictions had not been completely lifted.
‘Since it waited until now to use its ultimate move, it is possible that it could only be used once.’
After understanding this, Lin Yao relaxed slightly. He then released endless thunder and lightning right away, blasting the Brother Black Umbrella next to him.
“Big Brother, thank you so much for your help just now. In return, I will teach you a lesson today so that you can understand the sinister truth of the world.”
With gratitude in his heart, Lin Yao did not hesitate to act.
He had no choice but to attack the umbrella freak. He had been working with it for a while and could tell from its movements that if it covered the top of his head, it would trigger the killing rule.
It had still been alright in the apartment building. Lin Yao had fanned his tempest wings, and his head had reached the ceiling, which was already the highest in the building, so he had naturally been fearless. However, there was infinite sky above him now that he was on the lake. He did not want to have a taste of the rule of the black umbrella.
If he wanted to survive in this world, he had to strike first and gain the upper hand, or he would suffer. Lin Yao, who had the Agile Mind talent, was very fast as he attacked.
The bright thunder light instantly bombarded the black umbrella, causing it to tremble, and a large amount of blood was blasted out by the thunder and lightning.
After being attacked, it would naturally fight back.
However, it had no chance this time. Lin Yao struck first, and it now trembled, paralyzed by the thunder and lightning, as this moment seemed to last forever.
Boom, boom, boom.
The thunder continued, and the lightning was dazzling. In a very short time, dozens of thunderbolts burst from Lin Yao’s forehead and hands, successively smashing the black umbrella, causing it to tremble and soon get completely wiped out.
‘In terms of pure destructive power, thunder and lightning are not as good as flames, but in terms of restraining evil, Heavenly Thunder is several times better than ordinary flames.’
According to Lin Yao, who had mastered Heavenly Thunder, as long as the evil spirits were blasted by the thunder and lightning, there was no way they could break free. They would be blasted until they died.
After the complete destruction of the black umbrella, the heavy drifting rain that had been falling on Lin Yao’s head also disappeared.
However, a moment later, a large amount of water rose from the lake like a dragon, turning into rain and clouds in the sky.
Lin Yao was naturally the one behind it.
When he manipulated the lake to turn it into rain and clouds, preparing to create a battlefield environment favorable to him to deliver the final strike against his enemy, Xie An and the other people on the viewing boat widened their eyes in shock.
“Were all of you in a trance just now?”
“I can’t control my hands… No! Why are my hands and feet reversed?”
“Look, there is a god.”
Xie An and the several people with him were students from surrounding high schools. They were still young and were enjoying every moment of it. Xie An was celebrating his birthday today, preparing to confess his love to a girl named Xu Manmiao on his birthday. In order to be more romantic, he and his friends had come to Jing’an Lake with a few birthday cakes, and he was prepared to make a love confession while cruising along the lake at night.
Then, a tragedy took place.
The mirror space that had traveled there could not hold on anymore. It wanted to change the environment in the mirror to deal with Lin Yao. It needed to pull people from the surroundings into the mirror in order to change the environment. People happened to be by the lake, so it used the lake water as a mirror, displaying a strange silhouette on the surface.
In fact, not many people had seen the silhouette, so when they were pulled into the mirror space, not everyone would be drawn into it.
It was just that they were clueless about the existence of freaks.
As a result, after discovering that the lake surface was a little weird, those people were surprised at first but soon regarded it as something fantastic and called their friends over.
“Come here, there’s something good in the lake.”
“What is it?”
“Wow, it’s scary.”
“Ha ha ha! Xie An, isn’t that you? It’s just that the face is too distorted. It’s interesting. Why don’t you try distorting your face as well?”
“Okay, I will give it a try.”
“Wait a minute, I’ll take a picture of you.”
“Let’s just leave it alone. I keep feeling that things are not right.”
“Don’t worry, there’s so many of us here. Nothing will happen.”
What they intended to do was indeed silly. They did not know about the freaks or the danger behind it either.
In fact, because there were too many curious young people, the mirror space, which was weak in the initial stage, had to trigger harsh killing conditions and could kill many people to advance to a higher level.
There were researchers that did not want to see this happening time and again, so they proposed to the higher-ups to disclose the information about the freaks to the public.
Unfortunately, this proposal was rejected resolutely after it was reported to the higher-ups.
As they found it to be fun, everyone on the boat watched the twisted silhouette in the lake. It was a pleasure to take photos. When someone got scared, a girl even explained the principle of the distortion of the figure in the water.
“The figure is distorted because of the rippling effect in the lake. Have you heard of the distorting mirror? This is the reason behind it. It’s fine.”
“It’s so much fun. It would be nice if my parents were here. I will definitely bring them over to watch.”
