Chapter 656: There’s someone that I believe in too, and I know that she’ll definitely come
Ever since Ren Xiaosu plundered the Zong Consortium’s military factories, the stockpile of ammunition he had in his storage space was enough to equip an entire company. Back then, he had taken these weapons in case the Razor Sharp Company needed to replace their equipment. But as the fortunes of war changed quickly, he ended up having no use for them in that war.
The amount of grenades in a military factory was simply unimaginable. If he had not already given away a lot of them because of the war, he would have even more grenades in his possession.
But the power of the grenades paled in comparison to TNT.
The consortiums’ troops suddenly felt like Ren Xiaosu was armed with even more ammunition than they were. After Ren Xiaosu threw the TNT, it exploded very quickly in the distance.
The consortiums’ combatants did not even have time to get out of the TNT’s explosive range. Immediately, the shockwave sent all the nearby soldiers flying!
When the commanding officer of the troops saw this scene, he could almost feel his heart bleeding!
Before they came here, their higher-ups had specially instructed them to watch what they did in case of repercussions. Although they wanted to seize the satellites, they should not make it like an all-out war as it would not look good on them.
At that time, everyone was confident of seizing the satellites, so they were more concerned about their public image.
But now that someone like Ren Xiaosu had appeared, who would still care about what the public thought? Winning was the priority!
However, the thought of going all out against these few hundred people never crossed Ren Xiaosu’s mind at all. Otherwise, he would not have summoned the steam locomotive right off the bat!
Taking advantage of the chaos created by the explosion, Ren Xiaosu turned and ran towards Xu Ke. He shouted at Xu Ke, “Quick, get on the train!”
One of the supernatural beings could tell that Ren Xiaosu intended to escape with Xu Ke. He immediately opened a notebook in his hand and wrote quickly in it, “The young man prepared to escape on the train after the explosion went off, but the street lamp beside him suddenly fell down. As he dodged the falling street lamp, he revealed an opening between himself and his shield. Then a bullet shot through him.”
This superhuman wrote extremely fast. He only took about two seconds to finish writing a few dozen words. The handwriting in the notebook was so illegible that nobody else could read what he had written!
The moment he was done writing, he added a period to the sentence, and it actually started coming true!
A moment later, a soldier from the troops sprayed bullets at the road next to Ren Xiaosu. He was aiming at Ren Xiaosu at first, but the bullets directed at him got blocked by the human shield in his hand.
Another few shots that missed Ren Xiaosu ended up hitting the street lamp in front of him.
As the street lamp started falling, a creaking sound came from it.
The superhuman holding the notebook started to show a smile. He had been hiding in the corner just to wait for this moment to arrive. No matter how powerful the other party was, they still couldn’t escape their fate.
But before he could fully break into a smile, blood spluttered from his mouth. Ren Xiaosu did not dodge even when the street lamp was falling towards him. Instead, he kicked it away. In between, the combatants who were trying to shoot at Ren Xiaosu realized they could not find an opening through the human shield even though an accident like this happened!
The superhuman with the notebook looked at his handwriting in a daze. The words he wrote on the empty sheet of paper seemed to be getting rubbed away by an eraser as they started fading slowly!
The superhuman was shocked. He had never come across a strange situation like this before. The other party not only refused to accept his fate, he even caused him to suffer backlash!
Everything happened in a split second. When the superhuman raised his head to look for Ren Xiaosu’s figure, he realized Ren Xiaosu was aiming at him with a large black sniper rifle while running. In the blink of an eye, an intense muzzle flash burst from the rugged black sniper rifle. A huge bullet penetrated the book in his hand, then his heart as well.
The superhuman was thrown backwards by this huge force. He could even feel the spinning bullet tearing through the muscles and organs inside him after entering his body.
He could not understand why the other party would notice him. However, he did not have a chance to ponder that anymore.
Ren Xiaosu put away the sniper rifle and muttered, “Why are you holding a book at a time like this? Stop trying to look smart. You think you’re the only one who’s studious?!”
Ren Xiaosu rejoined Xu Ke. Meanwhile, the steam locomotive had also driven up to Xu Ke.
But just as Xu Ke was getting on the steam locomotive, a supernatural being who was hiding somewhere flashed out of the shadows. The other party jumped up into the air and pointed at the steam locomotive with one finger.
When his finger came into contact with the steam locomotive’s black metallic surface, the entire train body got covered by a layer of purple mist.
This purple mist shrouded the entire steam locomotive and froze it in place. The steam locomotive that was barging its way forward was immediately halted!
The powers of superhumans in the world had reached a stage where they were almost magical. Some superhumans could sense the presence of other superhumans, some could materialize a train out of thin air, and there was even someone who could use a notebook to decide the fate of others.
And now, there was someone who could freeze a steam locomotive in place with their power!
Ren Xiaosu was bewildered. He felt he was fully capable of overcoming the other party’s superpower, and it would only take him a few seconds to do so!
But at present, they were out in the open! He was unwilling to waste even a few seconds here! If he reacted any slower, Xu Ke might get turned into Swiss cheese!
After all, Xu Ke was already completely exhausted after killing several superhumans. If it had not been for Ren Xiaosu’s arrival, he would have been dead by now.
With no time to waste, Ren Xiaosu rushed to Xu Ke’s side and dragged him along as they wildly dodged the bullets on the long boulevard.
He had wanted to escape their pursuers by entering a nearby building, but if they went into the building, they would probably have no way to escape once the combatants and superhumans surrounded it from the outside.
Xu Ke gave a bitter smile. “I’m sorry to have dragged you in.”
Having been forced into a corner, Xu Ke was not the most upset about his impending death but that he had dragged Ren Xiaosu down with him.
But at a time like this, Ren Xiaosu actually laughed again. “Do you believe in me?”
Xu Ke smiled bitterly. “Yes.”
In the face of death, he shouldn’t be refuting Ren Xiaosu anymore, right? However, he did not know where Ren Xiaosu’s confidence came from. It was clear Ren Xiaosu had no other way out either.
Ren Xiaosu said with a smile as they ran, “There’s someone that I believe in too, and I know that she’ll definitely come”
Elsewhere, a girl wearing a cap was traversing through the flames and crowds in the darkness. She was running somewhere with all her might.
