The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 128.1
Chapter 128: More Scared Than Hurt
The tiger was stunned when he saw Xing Mo appear suddenly. When Xing Mo approached him with his raging flames wrapped around both hands, the tiger very quickly dodged to the side to avoid him.
Xing Mo’s fist fell into the air and ended up hitting a tree. A large hole was immediately smashed through the trunk of the tree, and the surrounding area was burnt black.
The tiger quickly realized Xing Mo’s strength and immediately turned and ran away. With the speed increase from the tiger shifting into beast form, even despite the fact that Xing Mo was a ability user wish physical qualities several times stronger than that of ordinary people, he still couldn’t catch up.
Xing Mo was, of course, aware of that fact, so he directly took out a small bomb from the space button, aimed it in the direction the tiger had fled and threw it.
This tiger beastkin had killed his team members. Weather it was for professional or personal reasons, he refused to stand by and watch him escape. Anyway, they only needed one attacker to survive for questioning.
After the bomb hit the ground, it exploded quickly, but the tiger had long since been prepared. He used his hind legs to jump three or four meters away, found a tree to duck behind, and was able to successfully avoid the explosion.
However, before he could take a breath, he saw Xing Mo throw another bomb. He could only move to dodge it again, but this time an explosion also came from behind him.
It turned out that when Xing Mo had thrown the bombs, he had thrown not one or two, but three bombs in a row. He knew that with this person’s physical qualities he would be able to react instantly and avoid his bombs, so he deliberately used the first and second bombs to force this person to move in a specific direction. Meanwhile, the third bomb had been rolled over the ground to target the position where the tiger was going to escape to.
This time the tiger couldn’t dodge and turned into a twitching human form as he was blown up.
The beastkin descendants of the first generation of genetically engineered people had the ability to freely switch between their animal and human forms. When badly injured though, they would instinctually revert to the most energy-saving form. This man’s animal form was too large, and the wounds caused by the explosion had been bleeding profusely. Only in human form did he stand a chance of surviving.
“I, I sa.. I said… Please let me go, let me off…” This man begged in pain. His whole body was covered in blood, and there wasn’t a single inch of good skin left on him, even his face couldn’t be seen clearly. However, Xing Mo didn’t need to see his face clearly to be able to confirm his identity.
He was also a wanted criminal and was also a beastkin descendant of the first generation of genetically engineered people. He had a violent temperament and was wanted for causing a massacre. While he was fleeing, he had been found by a patrol team and as a result killed the entire team. It had been an extremely vile incident, and as such he was a felon with a standing death order on him who was allowed to be killed on the spot.
He was willing to speak, but Xing Mo was unwilling to listen. Letting this man live for one more second was an insult to the soldiers who had died at his hands. There were still many others that could be interrogated, so there was no need to waste time on him.
Therefore, Xing Mo didn’t hesitate to directly use his energy weapon and took his life.
Xing Mo continued to check the micro communicator and found that the remaining four green dots were moving fast. Looking at the direction in which they were running, they were likely running away.
Although this trap must have been deliberately designed by someone behind the scenes, it wasn’t easy to find and hire beastkin to the point that it was already amazing that the person behind everything could find these two. The remaining four people were likely to be hired killers or ability users. However, among the Xing Mo’s team members, there were also four ability users, so the killers may not have had the power to kill them.
Either those people had been beaten by his team members and escaped, or they had discovered that something had gone wrong with their attack…
No matter what, those people couldn’t be allowed to get away!
Thinking as such, Xing Mo immediately chased in the direction where two of the green dots were fleeing.
“Are you okay?” at this time Gu SiYan cut a sorry figure. His previously soft blond hair was stuck to his forehead in clumps with sweat, and his normally handsome face was stained with mud and blood. He applied pressure to the bleeding stab wound on the waist of his companion that came from an assailant’s sharp weapon and used a bandage from his space button to dress the wound.
“Don’t mind me, chase them! Don’t let that kid run away!” There was also an obvious burn on the man’s abdomen, which was obviously an injury caused by a fire type ability user.
Gu SiYan gritted his teeth, took out a bottle of medicine for treating trauma from his space button, threw it to the wounded man, and then ran in the direction the person had escaped in without looking back. He ran very fast and was quickly able to shorten the distance between himself and the person he was pursuing.
Although Gu SiYan appeared weak, in fact he was also the top student in his grade at the Empire’s First Military Academy, otherwise he wouldn’t have had the opportunity to give a speech to the newcomers along side Xing Mo.
