He knew about this group.
It was a famous local enterprise in Green City.
It mainly engaged in health and fitness, retail, and security projects.
The chairman’s name was Le Wei.
He was also one of the many investors of [341B Space Portal] Square.
Recalling all this, Chen Yu’s face turned sour as he asked, “What does he want with me?”
“I don’t know… Don’t! Don’t do it! I really don’t know anything!” The man was close to tears as he cried, “The ones on top just asked us to follow you around. See… see what secrets you have…”
Chen Yu frowned, lapsing into thought.
‘A Level 2 warrior isn’t really considered an ordinary person anymore,’ he thought.
‘After all, the principal of No. 2 Middle High is only a Level 2 Peak Warrior…’
‘To send a Level 2 warrior to follow me around and pry my secret out of me…’
‘This means that they’ve already discovered a part of my secret.’
‘And they feel that this so-called secret is very important…’
Chen Yu continued to hold the Tang knife up high, an uncertain expression on his face.
With respect to the [Curse], he had never revealed anything…
‘But there are simply too many matters related to the [Curse] that it’s very difficult for me to pay close attention to all aspects of each and every matter caused by the [Curse].’
His thoughts were gradually getting clearer.
‘Is my strength rising too quickly?’
‘I was afraid that I would invite the unwanted attention of people with ulterior motives, so I’ve been keeping my strength under wraps until the college entrance examination. I’ve never shown it out in the open before.’
‘The only thing is that…’
‘The only thing is that when I’m taking those tests alone in the martial arts school…’
‘So that’s what this is all about.”
There was a bright sparkle in Chen Yu’s eyes as he said, “For some reason, I’ve aroused the suspicion of the investor of the ‘Space Portal Square’—Lewei Group. And this, in turn, piqued their interest and made them check out my physical tests data.”
‘Though I’ve deleted everything, professionals can easily recover the data on the equipment.’
‘There are so many warriors entering and exiting the Foreign Realm. How did I become Lewei Group’s main subject of suspicion?’
As he thought about all this, Chen Yu saw that the man was fully armed in protective gear and slapped his forehead.
‘It’s the radiation!’
‘To avoid an overdose of radiation, most warriors usually visit the hospital for a medical checkup.”
‘But I… I’ve never been to a hospital…”
‘By comparing the list of people who entered the Foreign Realm to the list of people who had medical checkups at hospitals, except for the dead, I’m the most unique one out of the remaining…”
Reaching up to rub his earlobes, Chen Yu smacked his lips and said, “God d*mn it! It’s really impossible trying to guard against such things.”
After he was more or less done with speculating what the truth of the entire situation was, he focused his attention back on the captive and asked, “Since you’re only supposed to follow me, why the sudden change of plans to kidnap me instead?”
“You found out about us, so we were left with no choice but to execute the alternative mission.”
“If the kidnap was successful, you would have brought me to where your boss is, I suppose.”
“Should… should be…” The man hesitated before saying, “The captain knows more about the inside dealings than we do.”
“Where is your boss?”
“Hmm!” The man was startled and asked, “You… What are you doing!”
“The real world is too crowded with too many pairs of watchful eyes. It’s not suitable to move captives about. So, your boss must be waiting somewhere in the Foreign Realm.” Chen Yu’s gaze was calm, and he said, “Tell me, where is he?”
“…” The man remained silent.
Chen Yu, on the other hand, slowly raised his Tang knife and said, “There’s a limit to my patience.”
“… If I tell you, will you let me go?”
“Definitely.” Chen Yu nodded and said, “You’re just a minion. And even if I let you go, Lewei Group won’t let you off that easily either. So, it really doesn’t matter whether I kill you or not.”
At these words, the man also felt that he was really left with no other choice. And so, he revealed his boss’s location.
Chen Yu asked again, “What’s the strength of your boss?”
“Level 3 warrior.”
“Is there anyone else there?”
After carefully and thoroughly asking all that he could possibly ask about, Chen Yu withdrew his Tang knife and put it away. Then, waving his hand dismissively, he said, “Get lost.”
“… Thank you.”
With a deep bow, the man turned around and ran off.
“Ah?” The man’s heart skipped a beat, and cold sweat started rolling down his face as he stammered, “You… you’re regretting your decision?”
“No. I just wanted to ask you if you could weaken my strength once more before leaving?”
The man: “??”
“It’s just that I’ve gotten a little addicted.”
The man: “???”
Chen Yu raised his knife threateningly and asked, “Weaken or not?”
“Weak… weak-weak-weaken!” The man nodded repeatedly. Then, he gathered and utilized all his internal strength before shouting out the command, “Martial Law… Heavy!”
[Subjected to attenuation by the Curse: Agility +17%; Temporary power +10%; Temporary reactivity +6%…]
Then, the red light dissipated, and the man staggered, his legs unsteady, and almost fell to the ground.
Chen Yu hurriedly went over to him to lend him some support. “You’ve worked hard,” he said.
The man: “…” (speechless)
Then, after taking one long, final look at Chen Yu, the man left, tiredly dragging his feet.
However, after walking for a distance of ten meters or so…
The sharp blade of Chen Yu’s Tang knife pierced right through the man’s heart from behind.
“Just as I thought…” The corners of the man’s mouth curved slightly upwards into a bitter smile.
The deed was done.
Chen Yu stepped forward and drew his Tang knife out of the man’s body. Then he said, “Sorry. You know too many secrets. It’s impossible to let you go back alive.”
He wiped away the blood on the sword before directly sitting on the ground. Then, he lit a cigarette and smoked to relieve himself of the exhaustion and fatigue.
This exhaustion he was feeling was psychological.
Level 3 warrior.
It just felt like there were two great mountains pinning him down.
The latter, in particular, was a force that he currently couldn’t fight against.
“If there’s really no other way out… then the only thing I can do is look for the state.”
Gently exhaling smoke, Chen Yu gradually formulated a plan in his mind.
There was indeed something fishy about the increase in his strength. So long as he was able to catch hold of an important point and investigate in detail, the secret of the [Curse] could no longer stay hidden.
But in essence, this was, after all, a “talent” that was uniquely his.
It was a talent that was irreplicable and indivisible, and there was no way it could be studied and researched.
Whether it was from the perspective of interest and benefit, or from the perspective of ethics and morals, the country would focus on nurturing him (but not necessarily).
But it was still better than falling into the hands of wealthy, powerful merchants.
“What a pain in the neck…”
Chen Yu flicked away his cigarette stub and stood up, supporting himself with the wall. Then, he started to scavenge the loot.
An outstanding individual would always invite jealousy and envy, just like how the general public would always find fault with big names.
A person with talent would always be persecuted and envied, just like a child with a piece of jade would invite topic for talk, as a mere commoner would never have the means to own valuable jade.
This was all commonplace talk.
Since he was inflicted with this [Curse], he had “transcended” to a level beyond that of ordinary people. He had long expected to face a constant stream of trouble.
Competition is the essence of life.
Even people who picked odds and ends from refuse heaps would have rivals.
The more “superior” a person was, the more “high-end” the problems they would face.
Lewei Group, just where could this possibly…
After scouring through the three dead bodies, Chen Yu unexpectedly found three grenades on Zhang Qing’s corpse…
Placing the grenades in front of him, he tried his best to translate the English wording on them.
“Smoke bomb…. Smoke bomb, a special effect smoke bomb…”
“This is a special effect stun grenade…”
“Mm… can be used in extreme environments, including extreme cold, extreme hot, underwater, under high radiation, in a vacuum, etc.”
“Holy crap! This is good stuff!”
Chen Yu held the stun grenade and the two smoke bombs, his eyes narrowing slightly.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
A bold idea gradually started to emerge in his mind.
“Courting doom with big-time destruction?”
“Put an end to Lewei Group?”
