Ch 177 – Blocked By A Stone Slab

Become stronger when meeting the strong!

The highest form of the Thirty-Six Lunar Star technique Lei Yu had figured out had never been cast before in public. Only the lower forms of this technique had been exposed in front of the Pope, and the Pope shouldn’t be idle to the point of having nothing better to do than to swing by and mention this to Dr. Tony. Other than his disciple Liu Hao knowing about this technique, there was only the Vampire Prince Bel and the Werewolf King Jonathan who had passed away.

The Dark Council was considered to have implacable hatred with Dr. Tony, so Lei Yu wasn’t worried these two would be in contact with each other. As for now, Lei Yu intended to use the first form of the Thirty-six Lunar Star technique against this powerful enemy – the one-eyed gorilla. Thus, Lei Yu still had a hidden card up his sleeves and wasn’t too worried.

Thinking up until this point, Lei Yu quickly adjusted his mentality. His internal energy started circulating and started running through his meridians. His arms that were numb from the previous attack by the one-eyed gorilla gradually recovered, and the Ares boots on his feet started shining brightly. What Lei Yu planned on doing was to finish this battle quickly; he was going to defeat his opponent in the shortest time possible.

The next attack by the one-eyed gorilla struck nothing but air. Even if he had more than doubled his movement speed from before, wanting to compare with Lei Yu’s speed was similar to comparing the tortoise to the hare. Not to mention Lei Yu had the support of the Ares boots. So in conclusion, this slab of meat was still unable to catch a corner of Lei Yu’s clothing.

The condensed internal energy began to take shape. Lei Yu didn’t have a weapon, but he did once have the sharp spike belonging to the Ink Beast. Unfortunately during the duel with the Ming Sect’s Cai Zhong, it was destroyed. Now he can only rely on his own pair of fists as weapons.

The purple internal energy was shining brightly in the palm of Lei Yu. And the white dots that sparkled like stars made his internal energy look extraordinarily beautiful. But there was no one to appreciate the sight because behind this brilliance was a destructive and deadly force.

Lei Yu then shouted: “Thirty-six Lunar Star technique, first form!” At the same time, his arm made a rotating gesture above his head.

A purple light in the shape of a crescent moon started expanding to a full five meters wide. With Lei Yu as the launching point, it rapidly flew off like lightning. At such swift and violent speeds, there was no way for the one-eyed gorilla to avoid it. The only thing he could do now was to resist it with all his efforts.

The moment the crescent shaped purple light was about to make its impact, the one-eyed gorilla became enraged. At first he never thought this attack would be so powerful, but when it was less than three meters away from him did he feel remorse. At this critical moment, even if he wanted to bend down and stoop to the ground to avoid the attack was an impossible thing now.

Seeing Lei Yu’s perfect first form attack was about to land on the oversized gorilla…

The ground suddenly vibrated and a large slab of stone fell down just in time in front of the one-eyed gorilla. The first form of the Thirty-six Lunar Star technique’s crescent moon attack neatly sliced the slab of stone in two, while the remaining power of the attack continued striking the body of the one-eyed gorilla.

The one-eyed gorilla roared as his bones could be seen on the deep wound of his chest.

Because the wound was so deep on its chest, it exposed the revolting sight of white bones yet it still wasn’t enough to kill him.

The sudden appearance of a slab of stone dropping down had saved the one-eyed gorilla, but it still suffered a serious injury due to the attack.

Lei Yu narrowed his eyes and he looked up. There was a huge gap where a piece of the ceiling was missing which was where the slab of stone had come from. Lei Yu wasn’t surprised at the missing piece of ceiling but was surprised when he sent out his spirit to probe the area; he detected the presence an expert up there, a true super expert!

“Dr. Tony?” Said Lei Yu in a cold tone as he didn’t bother paying attention to the seriously injured one-eyed gorilla anymore.

“You’re very smart and you almost ruined my plans!” At this time, a person jumped down from the ceiling. The strange thing about this person was that he was almost bald with barely any white hair remaining on his head that hung naturally on the sides. He was wearing a white lab coat and wearing gold rimmed eye glasses. No matter how you looked at him, he didn’t look like the most powerful existence amongst all the mutants.

Once Dr. Tony appeared, the one-eyed gorilla became very respectful. Ignoring his own wounds, the gorilla stood behind Dr. Tony with his head lowered as if he was ashamed of his defeat against Lei Yu.

“You’ve finally showed your face!” Lei Yu unconsciously took two steps back since being cautious was the utmost importance. Especially when you were at someone else’s territory, you had to be careful every step you took.

“You are indeed very smart and actually followed Bianca here. This was outside of my expectations.” Dr. Tony’s facial expression suddenly became serious and his eyes wide and round. “But since you’ve managed to come here, don’t even think of leaving this place alive!”

“I never intended on leaving this place alive!” Lei Yu didn’t show any fear and actually showed an awe-inspiring momentum. “If I can’t save my friend today, even if I die I will bring you guys to hell with me!”

“Oh really? Do you have that ability? According to my analysis, you only have a few simple moves for attacking. And after fighting those Third and Fourth Rank Mutants, along with the pack of wolves, you must have consumed a large portion of energy. After fighting Henry, your energy should have been depleted even further. You actually dare to shamelessly boast that you would bring us down with you? You’re practically indulging in your own fantasy!”

From the looks of it, Lei Yu was indeed in a bad situation. He has consumed quite a bit of energy but it was an amount he could still handle. With the sudden appearance of Dr. Tony, along with the one-eyed gorilla that Dr. Tony calls Henry, the situation has become complicated. Henry was seriously injured but not fatally, and it was only damage to his chest area akin to a skin trauma due to his size. Henry could just clench his teeth to bare the pain and continue fighting if he wanted.

Under these circumstances, Lei Yu was to face two Ultimate Rank Mutants. That’s just the first issue; the second being how many more underlings did Dr. Tony have? How many more mutants did he control? Lei Yu refused to believe he only had those previous dozen or so mutants and the pack of wolves. Therefore Lei Yu had to think of the worst case scenario – even if he can’t save Cui Ying Ying, they will all die together!

“If you think I only possess this tiny bit of abilities, then you are wrong. Dr. Tony, you could always give it a try and see if I’m merely indulging in my own fantasies!” Lei Yu assumed his fighting stance, but having thoughts of dying together wasn’t something easily accomplished.

Dr. Tony waved his hand, “It’s not the time for me to make a move, especially when you aren’t qualified for me to make a move!”

“What?!” Lei Yu was shocked, could it be that Dr. Tony still had some killers up his sleeves he hadn’t revealed yet? It looks like the scenario is even worse than he had expected.

“If you think I only have Henry as an Ultimate Rank Mutant, then you are completely mistaken! You three, come out!”

“Bang!”

“Bang!”

“Bang!”

A tremor came from the surrounding three walls followed by it collapsing. This time Lei Yu was completely and utterly shocked, another three Ultimate Rank Mutants had appeared!
