Ch 172 – Does Your Heart Ache?

There were a total of twelve teams in the perimeter. Lei Yu took about two hours to completely annihilate them all.

After adjusting his clothes, Lei Yu crawled out to the edge of the basin to carefully analyze the situation to await a good opportunity to make his move.

Around evening time, there was a slight change in front of the mound of dirt. Lei Yu immediately focused his spirit and the golden Ares boots started to shine. Once the passageway opened to a certain extent, Lei Yu rushed forth with his lightning-like speed. Since he was already running down slope, plus the fact his original speed was quite fast and he even have the Ares boots, Lei Yu took less than five seconds to sprint a distance of 1000 meters.

A black Mercedes car was coming up from the passageway. Lei Yu made a quick judgment based on detecting a Fifth Rank Mutant driving it. Before the driver even noticed, Lei Yu instantly used the abilities he grasped in the [Detachment Stage] and released the power of lightning from his right finger. It was an instant kill. A hole already appeared on the driver’s head and he died without even realizing what happened.

Lei Yu’s action was quickly found out by the people inside. Around the basin and inside the mound were numerous surveillance cameras mounted in inconspicuous places. Even if Lei Yu’s speed was faster, he would still be found out. Since Lei Yu had used less than 10 seconds from running down the slope to killing the driver, the guards couldn’t react fast enough even though they wanted to close the passageway.

“An expert has come, immediately notify Dr. Tony to make preparations!” Two mutants inside the control room panicked and yelled out to their associate outside the door.

The passageway leading down was smooth and brightly lit. Lei Yu increased his vigilance to 120% as he carefully walked further down.

Knowing that Cui Ying Ying was captured by Dr. Tony had thoroughly enraged Lei Yu. He wasn’t worried about if he would encounter danger, but was worried about Cui Ying Ying’s safety as time went on. Lei Yu was never stingy with his emotions when it came to someone that has helped him, especially when that person was a friend. Undoubtedly, friends and family was the most important thing to Lei Yu!

With his detection ability, Lei Yu could feel some people quickly approaching him. And the strength of these approaching people was all revealed before Lei Yu’s ability.

Heading towards him were eight Third Rank Mutants. Lei Yu stood motionless with his hands behind his back. A surge of power was released from his body with a faint purple aura flowing out. The current him looked exceptionally calm with his emotionless face, making these eight mutants not dare to step forward any longer.

The ground below Lei Yu’s foot suddenly pulsated, and a pit had suddenly appeared on the flat ground by Lei Yu shifting his foot. The purple energy was exuding a “buzzing” sound that chilled one’s heart. The condensed energy transformed into multiple purple lightning, spreading out like an energy net with Lei Yu as the center. Each and every lightning easily sliced into the walls and the ground around him. Lei Yu was similar to a fiendgod, giving everyone present extreme pressure. These eight Third Rank Mutants instantly felt a powerful force locking them in place, and the horrifying pressure suddenly made them want to back away from Lei Yu as their slow footsteps came to a stop.

The harsh “buzzing” sound became louder and entered into everyone’s ears. The fluctuating energy around Lei Yu stabilized as if becoming something like a chain. It was firmly tied to his body forming an impenetrable mesh.

The space around Lei Yu started twisting and distorting.


A purple lightning appeared as if it came from the heavens. Lei Yu’s body disappeared from his original position as he hurtled forward like a drill. He had already arrived in front of this group of mutants by the time they saw the purple lightning. With his horrifying gaze, Lei Yu’s lightning net sliced through these eight mutants blocking him and got rid of them at the shortest amount of time imaginable.

But things did not end there because at this time, four muscular and burly guys whom were clearly mutants rushed out from another passage. Lei Yu’s detection ability told him these four men had reached the peak strength of a Fifth Rank Mutant, so getting rid of them quickly wasn’t an easy thing to do. If there were only one of them, then it would be easy as pie. But since there were four of them, Lei Yu had to come up with a good strategy.

These four mutants didn’t slow down, and one particular muscular mutant with blonde hair rushed forth with a grin. One could tell how heavy his body weight was when the ground shook as he stomped down for a burst of speed.

Lei Yu narrowed his eyes and withdrew the lightning net surround himself.

At this moment, the ground trembled once more as two more mutants burst forth towards Lei Yu. The last one leaped into the air and dropped down right behind him. With their actions, Lei Yu was now surrounded on all four sides by mutants who were only 2 meters away from him. If these four Fifth Rank Mutants were part of any organizations, respect and close attention would be paid towards them. But now that they’ve all appeared at Dr. Tony’s place, one would wonder how many mutants did he actually control?

When the four arrived and rushed towards Lei Yu, their fists were raised and ready to strike but couldn’t. Of course they knew the gap between themselves and an expert of the Sixth Order existed. They struggled to free themselves from the pressure exerted by Lei Yu before jumping backwards. Now they were preparing themselves for a second chance to attack.

Lei Yu was like the reaper of death who only wanted to find Cui Ying Ying as soon as possible to ensure her safety. A quick battle for a quick conclusion was the essence of a fight. There wasn’t any benefits in delaying the outcome and would actually give his opponents more opportunities to take him down.

Lei Yu suddenly looked like he went crazy as he revealed his killing intent. His deep and profound eyes now showed a terrifying gaze. Even a mutant that was being controlled could not avoid the pressure being exerted by Lei Yu now. This was the gap a Fifth Order felt when facing someone of the Sixth Order, the pressure caused by their momentum could not be imitated.

Seeing Lei Yu’s hands that were shimmering with a purple light was similar to seeing the Devil himself. Coldness flashed in Lei Yu’s eyes – his upper body didn’t move but his left leg kicked out like a whip that was filled with lightning power. The previous blonde haired burly guy was the closest, he subconsciously blocked with both hands. He wasn’t able to resist the incredible power transmitting through his hands, causing his large body to be blown into the air and landing about 10 meters away. His whole body was trembling and he was unable to stand. It looks like Lei Yu’s lightning power had penetrated into every part of his body. The other three knew a Sixth Order expert was very strong, but they never thought it would only take a single strike. This was under the setting where their companion was on full guard, yet he was still forced into a situation where he could no longer stand up. How overbearingly powerful was this?!

Inside the control room staring at the monitor screens, Bianca’s mouth was agape as she witnessed what happened. She then mumbled: “No… I was wrong, I shouldn’t have done it. I’m sorry Lei Yu but I had to do this since I’m his daughter.” Deep inside, Bianca really liked Lei Yu. Even though she didn’t know when this started, the feeling was undoubtedly there. But things have progressed to this point and cannot be reversed. A crystal-like tear dripped out of the corner of Bianca’s eye.

“Does your heart ache?”

A familiar voice came from behind Bianca. Wiping the tears from her eyes, she then turned around.
