The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 71
Chapter 71: Shredded Mecha
Seeing Ling WenHua and others preparing to escape through the wormhole, Nelson immediately sneered, “Humph, wanna run?”
Nelson quickly tapped his fingers on the console and controlled the mecha to catch up. While flying fast, he switched to the most heavy hitting quantum torpedoes, preparing to teach these Imperials a profound lesson.
【Beep Beep Beep——Energy is less than 40%. The use of heavy weapons may lead to energy depletion. Would you like to confirm usage?】
“What?!” After hearing the low-energy alert from the mecha system, Nelson yelled with anger, but attempting to regenerate his energy at that point was useless. He could only blame himself for using too much of the mecha’s energy playing with the Imperials on the battleship.
“Quick! Shoot ‘em! Don’t let ’em run!”
The interstellar pirates responded quickly after receiving Nelson’s order, and quickly caught up to and attacked Ling WenHua and his group.
Ling WenHua’s group just managed to pass through the wormhole in a thrilling manner under the lights of the many attacks of artillery fire.
“Fu̲c̲k̲!” After seeing his prey escaping, Nelson slammed the console with anger, “Don’t chase, all come back to me!”
He knew very well where the other side of the wormhole let out. If they followed them through it, they might encounter the Empire’s army. At that point their small force would be at a sure disadvantage.
The interstellar pirate’s mechas stopped in front of the wormhole, turned around and flew back.
The wormhole began to shrink slowly. Ling WenHua and his mecha stopped after passing through the wormhole. He turned around and looked at the escape pod on the other side of the wormhole that was lit with fire on the screen, feeling extremely heavy.
“Captain Lin… Look at that escape pod… it seems to be open…” An exclamation came from the communicator.
“What?” How could a blown up escape pod still be opened?
Ling WenHua narrowed his line of sight in disbelief, and saw that a layer of smooth metal appeared in the escape capsule that should have been riddled with holes, like a cocoon enclosed inside the escape pod. At this moment, the metal cocoon was slowly opening. Xing Mo, Lin Luo, and a third survivor in protective clothing got out of it, then activated the flight function on their protective clothing and flew in the direction of the wormhole.
“They’re still alive!” Ling WenHua showed shock.
“They started flying in the direction of the wormhole!” Cheers from other people also came from the communicator.
However, the wormhole had begun to close, and Xing Mo was running out of time. The flying ability of the protective suits was not comparable to that of the miniature escape pod. It would likely be difficult for them to pass through the wormhole in time.
“I’ll pick them up!” Ling WenHua immediately wanted to go back and go through the wormhole to pick them up, but was blocked by his companions.
“Captain Lin, the mecha is too big. If you go, you’ll definitely not be able to come back… Let them come by themselves… There’s still a glimmer of hope…”
Ling WenHua looked at the three figures on the screen impatiently with anxiously, and could only pray for them to pass through the wormhole in time.
But things obviously didn’t go so smoothly. Nelson, who had been staring in the direction of the wormhole out of anger, also found the surviving Xing Mo and others.
“Those guys are still alive?! Shoot them! Never let them run away again!” Nelson ordered.
The mecha that had not yet flown far immediately turned around, aimed at the direction of the three of them, and launched an attack.
“You guys go! I’ll stop them!” Xing Mo pushed Lin Luo and the other person towards the wormhole fiercely, before he turned around and activated his ice and fire abilities at the same time to flood the surrounding space with a vast cloud of fog that appeared out of thin air. The fog covered their figures, making it impossible for the interstellar pirates’ mechas to lock onto their position with the naked eye. They could turn on the thermal mode to scan, but that would take time. Xing Mo took advantage of this short time difference and quickly rushed towards the mecha closest to him.
He keenly avoided the attack of the two torpedo cannons and successfully touched the mecha when something unthinkable happened – Xing Mo stretched out his hand and grabbed one of the mecha’s arms, and simply pulled it off.
“This… how is this possible?!” Nelson couldn’t believe his eyes at all.
The mechas were all made of super-alloys and are extremely strong. How could they be broken by a single hand?
But the truth was cruel.
Xing Mo quickly removed the two arms of the mecha loaded with the weapons, and then flew to the mecha’s cockpit, tearing off the door of the cockpit abruptly.
Tore it off…
This would probably be a real shredded mecha, right?
“Multiple powers…” Nelson murmured in disbelief.
However, Xing Mo’s movements did not stop in the slightest. He directly pulled out the pirate in the cockpit, punched him out, then quickly flew to the next mecha.
Naturally, the other mecha would not sit still and desperately tried to attack Xing Mo, but it was like an elephant fighting an ant with nowhere to use any strength. After Xing Mo got close, it would inevitably face the end of being torn by hand.
“Boss, there’s a message from Alpha that the Empires is too cunning. Our target had been evacuated under the cover of the Empire for a long time. What do we do now?”
“Damn! All retreat!” Knowing that this time his plan could not be achieved, Nelson didn’t want to continue entanglement with this **** ability user, so he had to order a retreat.
After opening the spacial tear with the space jump device, the interstellar pirates began to leave.
But before leaving, Nelson had a gift to give this damn ability user!
After the interstellar pirate group left, the universe regained tranquility. Xing Mo let himself float in the void. He succeeded in attracting the attention of the interstellar pirates by himself, allowing Lin Luo and the other survivor to escape successfully.
Xing Mo looked in the direction of the previous wormhole, but there was only darkness left.
A low-energy alarm sound came from his combat protective clothing. The hour of energy had almost already been consumed, and even the oxygen was only half left. Fortunately, the light brain was still able to be used and was able to send out a signal for help, but he wasn’t sure if he could survive until rescue…
At this moment, he suddenly saw a burst of bright light.
The next moment, a wormhole suddenly appeared behind him, engulfing his entire being.
But as long as Lin Luo is safe, that’s fine.
Those were Xing Mo’s thoughts before losing consciousness.
Xing Mo vaguely heard someone calling him in a low voice.
It seemed to be Lin Luo’s voice?
The memory before losing consciousness began to slowly emerge. Before leaving, those despicable and shameless pirates still did their best to pit him before leaving. A negative ion emitter had been thrown out which had opened a huge wormhole and swept him into it. He didn’t know whether the other party was setting up a directional transmission or a random transmission, and didn’t know where he would be sent.
Lin Luo should have passed through the wormhole and returned to Vermi. It’s impossible he would be here…
Did he miss Lin Luo so much that he had auditory hallucinations?
Xing Mo’s hand was held by someone, and Lin Luo’s voice sounded like it was right in his ear.
Could it really be Xiao Luo…?
Could it be that the place the wormhole let out to was very close to the Empire, and the army sent people to rescue him?
“Brother Xing… you wake up soon…”
With the crying, trembling voice, and the wet touch on his cheek, Xing Mo’s heart trembled slightly. He opened his heavy eyelids with great effort, and his eyes were stung by the bright light.
“Brother! You’re awake!” After Xing Mo opened his eyes, he met a pair of red eyes.
“Xiao Luo…Where are we?” Xing Mo asked in a hoarse voice.
“We are on a starship, and we’re going to the Federation soon.”
“Federation?” Did he hear it right? It should be coming soon to the Empire, right?
“Yes, the Federation…”
Lin Luo glanced at Xing Mo with some guilty conscience, and then began to explain in a low voice.
It turned out that Xing Mo pushed him and the other survivor through the wormhole to protect them, then stayed alone to fight against the numerous interstellar pirate. But how could Lin Luo leave his lover to escape alone?
So instead of going through the wormhole, he turned back while no one was paying attention.
The interstellar pirate’s attention was all attracted by the powerful Xing Mo, so no one found him.
After Xing Mo destroyed three mechas in a row, the interstellar pirate seemed to feel scared and chose to retreat. Seeing Xing Mo floating freely, Lin Luo wanted to fly over immediately, but was afraid that he would be scolded by Xing Mo. After hesitation, the negative ion emitter was turned on and both of them were drawn into the wormhole.
This wormhole didn’t seem to be directional. They were randomly transmitted to an unknown star field, and their light brains couldn’t connect to the Empire’s StarNet signals, making them unable to send for help. Lin Luo could only send shortwave help signals to the surroundings through his light brain, hoping that starships passing by could spot them.
The oxygen in their protective clothing could only last for one hour. If they weren’t rescued within an hour, they could only die.
Fortunately, they were lucky enough to be picked up by a passing Federal starship.
It was only after boarding the starship did Lin Luo realize that they had been teleported to the Federal Star Territory.
