Chapter 497: Battle of Noriosse (3)
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
All the pedestrians in the sealed region were sent out, and they gathered outside the protective shield to watch the battle. Alvin and Ember, with one running and the other chasing, had long left the region and were not locked in the protective shield.
Even more Public Security Squads waited outside the protective shield, and there were at least a thousand aircrafts. The Protector who had been hired by the financial group was also inside the protective shield, monitoring the battle from the sidelines without any intention of interfering.
Upon witnessing such a scene, the expressions of the DarkStar warriors and mercenaries changed. They felt as though they were being locked up in a cage.
“They locked down the region? It seems like we created too much chaos.”
Anur’s eyes narrowed. With such a big commotion created, they would not be able to stay on Noriosse for too long. The moment that Alvin died, they would have to retreat from Noriosse immediately. The DarkStar fleet was already waiting for orders outside the atmosphere and was ready to aid them at any time. Would they end up in conflict with Noriosse’s fleet? However, that was nothing to be afraid of.
Anur then thought of the embarrassing result that Ember had produced a few days ago.
It is probably best for me to stay behind and delay the enemies. Ember has already failed once, and I doubt he will be able to deal with the combined attacks of Black Star and Nagakin. When the battle ends, it will also be easier for me to leave this place, and I am virtually undefeatable with my speed.
On the other side, the appearance of the protective shield made Han Xiao worry.
While the lockdown of the region seemed to be restricting Anur’s movement range, it was actually extremely disadvantageous to them. It was as good of freeing Anur from his wariness.
In the locked region, Anur could unleash all of his strength without any restraint and turn the entire region into a cyclone of destruction!
Furthermore, the protective shield separated them from the passersby, and Han Xiao’s plan to make use of Anur’s destructive force to drag them in could not be accomplished.
With just a slight moment of distraction, the wind pressure cannon smashed into his chest. His armor was immediately dented, and Han Xiao was sent flying.
The situation is extremely bad. I wonder how my officers are doing.
Far away from the center of the battlefield. Feidin and Sylvia were retreating from the battlefield. They had originally been hiding somewhere nearby, but as the battlefield expanded, they had no choice but to change their location in order to prevent themselves from being spotted by the enemy.
“Let… let go of me! I want to go back and help!”
Sylvia’s tone was anxious, and her face had turned red from exerting too much strength. She was trying to break free from Feidin’s grip.
Feidin held onto Sylvia’s wrist tightly and dragged her along with a sigh. “Stop being a fool. You won’t be of any help, and any one of the enemies will be able to kill you. Can’t you see the battle in the sky? As long as you get dragged into that cyclone, you are dead for sure.”
“I…” Sylvia did not have anything to say in response. After a while, she said angrily, “But you can help them!”
“I don’t wish to be involved in your mercenary group’s mission. This matter has nothing to do with me.” Feidin shook his head.
Sylvia was furious and she bit down on Feidin’s hands, hoping that he would let go.
Feidin squirmed in pain, and he looked down at his bleeding hand. With a sigh, he said, “No matter what you say, I will not allow you to charge into your death.”
Right at that moment, footsteps could be heard from in front, and a DarkStar member blocked their path.
“Ah, two lost fish who escaped the net.”
Sinesa sneered coldly. She had just gotten rid of a hired Grade B mercenary and noticed some movement. Thus, she had decided to block their path.
Feidin and Sylvia’s faces blanched.
Sylvia immediately took out her alloy sword, and her hands began to tremble. While she wanted to control her hands from trembling, in the face of a Grade B Super, a Grade D Super like her felt an instinctive sense of fear.
At that moment, Feidin pushed Sylvia behind him.
“Run away quickly. I will block her.”
Feidin’s tone was calm.
A formless pressure then gushed toward the both of them and interrupted the words that were about to come out from Sylvia’s mouth.
Feidin opened his mouth, and music drifted out. His psychic energy formed a shield to protect the both of them, but it was quickly shattered the next moment. The two of them were sent flying and collapsed onto the ground.
“Only Grade C?”
Sinesa was a little disappointed. She had thought that she had caught a big fish, but they were only two small shrimps.
Sylvia felt her bum aching from the fall but realized that she was not injured at all. This attack was only a probing strike from Sinesa. While Feidin’s psychic shield was broken, it had blocked the majority of the attack. Furthermore, Feidin had absorbed most of the damage for her.
Standing up, Feidin felt a warm sensation in his nose. Wiping his nose with his hands, his hands were immediately covered with blood. At the same time, his head felt as though it was being stung by needles.
Bearing the pain silently, he maintained his calm expression and turned to look at Sylvia. With a forced smile, he said, “I am alright. Don’t stay here, or I will have to divert my attention to take care of you.”
As Sylvia heard that, she gritted her teeth, took up her sword, and ran away resolutely.
She knew that her strength was lacking, and staying behind would only create trouble.
Feidin turned back around to meet the enemy. Tidying his clothes, he took a deep breath and began channeling his psychic energy.
“You aren’t going to escape?” Sinesa said with excitement.
“We are both Psychics, and it won’t hurt to have a spar.” Feidin forced a smile.
Sinesa’s eyes widened, and she asked doubtfully, “A Grade C Psychic like you wants to spar with me?”
“In truth, this is my first time fighting with my psychic abilities,” Feidin said with a serious tone. “I do not like to fight. If you can spare me, I will be very thankful.”
Sinesa could not be bothered to continue talking and unleashed her powerful psychic energy. She was prepared to get rid of the fellow in front of him before killing the little girl who had run away.
It would not take too much time anyway.
Boom boom boom!
The space between the two of them began contorting, and a series of attacks exploded.
A few seconds later, Feidin collapsed onto the ground with his every orifice bleeding.
“Overestimating yourself,” Sinesa sneered before walking over Feidin’s body.
Just as she was about to give chase to Sylvia, Feidin’s weak voice sounded from behind.
“Cough cough… battling is truly difficult. I am indeed unsuitable for such violence…”
Feidin stood up shakily with his face full of blood. Blood was dripping down from his elegant face and onto the ground.
Sinesa turned around with a frown. She had unleashed her psychic energy without any restraint, and the other party’s head should have turned into mush.
Forget it, another few attacks won’t be that big a deal.
Feidin coughed out a mouthful of blood and said with a bitter smile on his face, “I shouldn’t have forced it. I am indeed not suitable for this… Yes yes yes, I am trash. Stop scolding me, I already have a headache…. Er, I also know that you are hurting. Be good, don’t make any noise. Alright then, I shall promise you. Just don’t let my body die… Jeez, I am truly reluctant.”
“Who are you talking to?” Sinesa was bewildered. Turning back to take a look, she realized that there was no one else beside her. She then came to a realization… This person must have been beaten up by her to the point that he went crazy.
“You are truly unlucky to have met me.” Sinesa unleashed her psychic energy again. She would never hesitate when killing the enemy.
The next moment, Sinesa felt a loud ring by her ears as though a bell was constantly being rung in her head. It was as though her brain was being constantly hammered time and time again. Feidin remained still, and she was the one to fly backward instead.
With a loud crash, Sinesa collapsed onto the ground and spat out a mouthful of blood. After falling into a daze for a while, she looked at Feidin with shock.
Just what is going on‽
Feidin seemed to have transformed into a completely different person with his charisma being transformed. His actions became gentle as he wiped away the blood stains on his face like a girl. At the same time, a look of delight could be seen in his eyes.
“Why do I feel as though you are the one with bad luck? I was just worrying about not having a target to vent my anger!”
Feidin… or rather, Chen Xing circulated her psychic energy, and the might of her psychic energy displayed was more than ten times greater than before.
Seeing that, Sinesa’s expression dropped.
“You like to fight, right?” Chen Xing gnashed her teeth. “This old lady will accompany you to have some fun!”
