The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 128.2
“Stop!” Gu SiYan kept firing with the energy weapon in his hand, but the man who was fleeing ahead of him seemed to have eyes on the back of his head and flexibly avoided Gu SiYan’s attack.
For the powerful masters, ordinary weapons couldn’t cause them harm at all.
Gu SiYan turned to shoot at the trees along the man’s escape route. The trees fell in response, which slowed the man’s escape.
The man was annoyed by Gu SiYan’s pursuit and stopped suddenly. A blade as thin as a cicada’s wing appeared between his fingers and slashed in Gu SiYan’s direction, but for some reason he stopped short and put the blade away again as he cursed, “𝙵𝚞𝚌𝚔! Sticky brat! Stop chasing and don’t force LaoZi to hurt you!”
Gu SiYan ignored his threats completely and shortened the distance between the two again.
Seeing that Gu SiYan was about to catch up, the man spat on the ground before suddenly throwing a tear gas canister.
The irritating smoke dissipated. Although Gu Siyan immediately held his breath, his eyes were still stimulated which caused tears to keep pouring out, blurring his vision. Still, Gu SiYan didn’t give up simply over that. He suddenly squatted. He suddenly squatted down, pressed his hands on the ground, activated his wood type abilities, and drove the grass blades on the ground to grow wildly and wrap around the man’s ankles.
“𝙵𝚞𝚌𝚔!” A killing intent flashed in the man’s eyes after he was caught, but for some strange reason he suppressed it again. He also activated his ability and burned the entangling blades of grass away with fire before he quickly fled the scene.
By the time Gu Siyan escaped the range of smoke, the man had already disappeared.
Seeing the burnt mark on the ground, Gu Si gritted his teeth unwillingly and had to turn around and walk back.
But he suddenly heard a burst of hurried footsteps. He immediately raised the energy gun in his hand into a defensive posture and hid behind a tree, quietly aiming at the direction of the sound. Just as he was about to pull the trigger, he saw a familiar face.
“Captain!” Gu SiYan yelled in surprise, not expecting that the person coming would be Xing Mo.
Xing Mo didn’t expect to meet Gu SiYan here. He glanced at the green dot displayed on the micro communicator and found a fast moving green dot that had escaped from this direction.
“Chase.” Xing Mo didn’t talk nonsense and continued to chase the green dot.
Gu SiYan quickly followed, and at the same time reported his group’s situation to Xing Mo.
Their patrol team plus Xing Mo had a total of twenty-one people who had divided into eleven groups for scattered searches.In fact, in terms of numbers, they should have had an advantage. Unfortunately, the other party had no lack of preparation. Although they only had six people, they were quite ready for them. Not only had the ambushing group blocked their communication signals, but they were also able to grasp the patrol groups exact locations and defeat them individually. The worst part is, this means that someone on their patrol might have been bribed.
Among these people, Xing Mo was most suspicious of Gu SiYan as he had been a part of the team for the shortest time. He had also been in a team with Hou Zhen who had been seriously injured while fighting with the enemy while he came out of the fight unscathed, which made him more suspicious.
That said, if someone were to say that Gu SiYan was the mastermind behind everything, Xing Mo would just feel that such an explanation didn’t check out. He had been in contact with Gu SiYan a lot during recent times, and Gu SiYan had always been normal. Except for his stalking behavior, he was and good soldier who was dedicated to his duties. Even if Gu SiYan had started to hate him due to his rejection and wanted to do something against him, how could he hire so many felons and notorious killers? Why would he want to attack the rest of the patrol team? If he were to kill them, even if he alone were to survive, what good would it do him?
Moreover, judging from Gu Siyan’s performance just now, there was nothing suspicious about him. If all of this was a performance then Gu SiYan would be a waste of talent as a soldier.
“Captain, be careful!” While Xing Mo was thinking, Gu SiYan suddenly reminded him.
The next moment, Xing Mo heard a sharp whistle of wind coming towards his head. He tilted his head immediately, and something flew past his cheek at a very fast speed. A moment later he felt a sharp tingling sensation.
“There!” Gu SiYan immediately engaged in pursuit of the attacker. He kept firing the energy weapon in his hand as if he had engaged the enemy in a desperate battle.
Xing Mo stretched out a hand to wipe the blood dripping from his cheeks, and immediately chased after him.
“Use your abilities! Catch him!” Xing Mo said to Gu SiYan.
They were now in the dense forest, which was a great advantage for a person with wood type abilities.
“But he’s a fire type ability user…” Gu SiYan said with some uncertainty. The fire type was the nemesis of the wood type. He hadn’t forgotten that when he fought with that person just a little while ago his wood type ability was completely unable to harm or hold him.
“With me here you just need to delay him as much as possible.”
Gu SiYan leaned down again, activated his ability, and controlled the blade of grass to sweep toward the person once more.
“𝙵𝚞𝚌𝚔!” The man kept releasing flames anxiously, burning the surrounding grass blades as his actions suddenly became slow, which gave Xing Mo an opportunity to act.
The author has something to say: Dang, the high level exams are crazy… I just finished the review and now I need to take it…
