“Where’s the young master? He was just here and now I can’t find him.” Gray Bear said in confusion as he looked all over and didn’t find Lei Yu.
Black Panther watched a black shadow rapidly disappear off into the distance before saying: “The young master is taking care of something and has already left.”
Inside Ai Er’s room, she didn’t go out to send Bianca off. She wasn’t some narrow-minded person or anything but had coincidentally received a phone call from home. The one on the other end of the line was her father Nuo Yi Long.
“How could something like this happen? Does Brother Yu know about this?” Ai Er asked in disbelief.
Nuo Yi Long gave a long sigh, “Since something like this happened, those in the Kou country would definitely notify him as their first priority. I believe he is currently making his own move now. For such a man, there’s too much burden on his shoulders. Sometimes I wonder if allowing you to be with him is something right or wrong.”
“How could you say such things at this time? Brother Yu and I will absolutely not separate. Ying Ying is currently in danger so I believe he wouldn’t just sit idly. And Ying Ying is my friend so I hope she would safely get past this crisis.”
“Just think things through yourself, and let me know if anything new comes up. That’s it then.” Nuo Yi Long hung up the phone. Ai Er couldn’t sit still and left to look for any traces of Lei Yu. When Bianca left, Lei Yu also disappeared. Ai Er suddenly felt a kind of foreboding and wanted to ask around, but Black Panther and Gray Bear both barely knew anything. Liu Hao was also asking around before finding out Cui Ying Ying had been captured. Even though he was anxious, he couldn’t do anything about it and could only wait for Lei Yu to bring back some news.
Bianca was driving quite fast, but about a hundred meters or so away from her was a black shadow dashing through the forest next to the highway. The shadow’s speed was extremely fast to the point of approaching unimaginable speeds. That’s right, that black shadow was Lei Yu who had disappeared from the estate.
Lei Yu wasn’t dumb; he of course had some doubts with what Bianca told him. Since he doesn’t know where the Dark Council’s headquarters were, he was actually quite interested to see where Bianca’s father, Dr. Tony was located at. Maybe he even has some new information about Cui Ying Ying?
Although Lei Yu’s strength was constantly being consumed, the amount of energy consumed was very little. The reason was he had worn the golden Ares boots without him even realizing it. The energy he was using right now was almost proportional to the energy that he recovered naturally. At the current speed he was running at, Lei Yu had no problems with maintaining it for a long time.
Over the course of the night, Lei Yu was beginning to have doubts on where he was going. This route was not heading towards New York but to another location that was a basin, similar to a large crater. Trees and wild weeds were growing everywhere creating an intricate environment. Someone without a sense of direction would certainly lose their bearings here. But since Lei Yu had already locked onto Bianca’s presence, he wasn’t affected one bit.
The distance Lei Yu was from Bianca was just enough for him to sense her presence. Having the ability to detect someone’s presence maybe a talent that only the unique Lei Yu in the entire world would have.
As they got closer the basin, the roadway became narrower for Bianca. The trees in the woods also became denser for Lei Yu, causing him to constantly dodge left and right in order to not crash into a tree.
A ramp leading down to the lowest part of the basin was seen so Lei Yu stopped in his tracks. “So Dr. Tony’s true hideout is at this location, no wonder no one was able to find it!”
At the lowest part of the basin was a small mound of soil. The basin was like a dish and the mound was like a meatball in the middle of it, blending inconspicuously with the environment. Lei Yu peeked out to look and noticed once Bianca’s car was close to the mound, clanking noises were heard and a passage leading underground opened up. Observing what was going on, Lei Yu realized that wanting to easily enter this place wasn’t a simple task at all.
The reason why Lei Yu stopped and didn’t continue following Bianca’s car wasn’t because he was tired, but he had detected the presences of mutants all over the area and the weakest of them had the strength of a Third Rank Mutant. With these mutants guarding the place, even if the U.S. sent in troops to clear this place, it is doubtful they will have an easy time in doing it. But this scenario wouldn’t happen for now because they thought Dr. Tony wouldn’t have such ambitious plans. Once he does have those ambitions, it would definitely be a large-scale operation.
Mutants do not have any positive contribution to society and could cause unimaginable destruction. Especially when these mutants are under the control of Dr. Tony. Who knows what terrifying plans he has for the future? There’s no way Lei Yu would show mercy to these mutants so he was planning on killing them one by one to successfully enter into the compound. If he was exposed with them still alive, he would definitely be under attack by all of them at the same time.
Darting through the woods, Lei Yu carefully took a detour to another area. He was heading to the nearest pair of mutant guards, a Third Rank and a Fourth Rank.
The two mutants were sitting on the ground. One was using binoculars looking off into the distance while the other was sitting on the ground looking bored with a cigarette dangling from his mouth.
“The young miss has returned. It seems like everything is going well.”
“That’s right; it looks like Dr. Tony’s plan was flawless. I thought this so called Lei Yu was extremely smart but it turns out he was just your average Joe.”
Their conversation was completely heard by Lei Yu. He tightened his fists as he quietly got closer to them.
When Lei Yu was about twenty meters from them, he hid behind a large tree. When those two mutants started chatting again, it made Lei Yu completely crazy as his killing intent rose to the heavens.
“You’re talking about Dr. Tony capturing Lei Yu’s friend and then framing the Dark Council? What do you think Lei Yu would do when he can’t find her inside their base?”
“You’re such an idiot! When Lei Yu goes to the Dark Council to settle things, do you think he would believe them even if they said such a thing never happened? This isn’t something you or I can discuss so forget about it. Just properly guard our sector or else if someone finds out we’re idly chatting here, we’ll be in big trouble!”
The other mutant squished his cigarette butt on the ground and stood up. He looked around and suddenly turned before freezing in place.
“Monkey head, what’s up with you?”
Asked the person with the binoculars as he noticed his partner’s odd behavior. But no matter how much he asked, his partner didn’t reply. His vigilance was immediately increased before carefully walking up to his partner and tapping his shoulder.
“Plop.” The person directly fell to the ground. Once the body crumpled to the ground, a person suddenly appeared in front and stared at him with a terrifying glare. Even though the guard wanted to scream out, it was already too late.
Lei Yu’s attack speed was too fast, not even allowing the guard a chance to shout. A horrific looking hole was seen on the guard’s chest that gave off a slightly burnt smell.
“Bianca, you actually lied to me. It looks like this is the end of our friendship!” Said Lei Yu in a cold voice before setting off to look for his next target.
