Chapter 811: A thickening conspiracy
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
When Su Hao saw that person appeared, his eyebrows twitched.
He clearly remembered that when he was wandering outside the Su family’s residence, he encountered an attack from this guy and even used Shadowless God Needle to kill him.
Yes, that same guy who tried to kill Su Hao and shift the blame onto the Tian family in order to cause a battle between those two families. Although it was unexpected that the Tian family eventually declared war with the other top families, Su Hao still had some impression on this guy who wished to take advantage of a crisis.
At that time, even a world esper got involved, right?
Then, he should be dead.
Su Hao thought deeply. However, it was one thing that he was shocked, but he wasn’t in a hurry. Obviously this guy couldn’t recognize him in this state and even confidently threatened Su Hao. Su Hao glanced at the guy who tried to send a message to the outside world earlier and saw a stunned look. This could only mean that these men aren’t his people.
They met another party who’s trying to take advantage of them?
Su Hao didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
These guys were so cunning. Even when this strategic mission was appointed in a secretive nature that left Su Hao and others clueless before boarding the aircraft, does that mean the enemy had some esper with an ability to spy or hear them? Or perhaps, they just simply predicted it?
“Damn those special talents.” Su Hao frowned.
In this era of origin ability, it’s not surprising to meet anything unexpected.
Of course, the confrontation between ability talent is kind of interesting. Whether or not you can see through the shield, it will depend on the amount of energy within the shield. This spying type talent is already considered not bad. After all, you can still use a shield to counter them. As long as your shield is stronger, there is nothing to worry about.
And the worst one which you can’t guard against is deduction!
Just with Model Analysis alone, Su Hao, who is at an amateur level, could perform a perfect deduction of the next short period of time. Then what about those espers who have ability talents specialized in deduction?
“Seems that the enemy has such a person in their team.” Su Hao’s gaze swept across them. In their team, there seemed to be no such esper, which indicated that the person most likely acted behind them. Huh, hold on, if there is such a person…
Su Hao suddenly thought of the existence of a certain world esper.
If not for a past experience, Su Hao would definitely think that the enemy only had these few people in front of them, but… that world esper, it can’t be that he’s here again, right?
Su Hao was a little alarmed.
Although it’s impossible in theory, as a world esper has more important matters to attend to. Either they are busy cultivating, especially those who just broke through recently and are aiming for the creation stage to produce a boundary spirit. How would one even have the time to bother with such trivial matters? However, this world esper coming from a little family, could he be busy?
Soon, Su Hao thought of an absurd possibility, “Perhaps this matter has become interesting…”
An energy sphere the size of a ping pong ball appeared.
“Sure enough, it’s him!”
That familiar origin technique made Su Hao tremble. His previous doubts had already been confirmed.
“Charge!” Xie Te calmly ordered, “End this as quick as possible!”
As combat enfolded, flashes of light filled the scene. One by one, each esper’s domain emerged and expanded toward their surroundings. All sorts of colors flashed as the aura of the domains vibrated the air particles while colliding in mid-air.
The party which was here to ambush them didn’t fall behind the pace. Clearly, they had calculated and considered Su Hao and the others’ strength. The opposing party just happened to have one additional esper. Then, the entire battle began to flow towards their direction. With such a high pace battle, it wouldn’t be long until Su Hao and his team loses.
“Interesting.” Su Hao still maintained his strength at the level of the absolute domain realm. He revealed a smile. To be so calculative, that could only indicate that the other side didn’t have much manpower to spend.
He could also phrase it like what he said earlier; they come from a small family.
What made Su Hao even more curious is that if it’s a small family, they will cherish every manpower they have. What if there is a death?
Wouldn’t that be able to test whether or not that world esper is here?
Su Hao’s figure began to move swiftly.
Su Hao, who was fighting an absolute domain esper, suddenly appeared on the other side of the fight. Then, he gave a kick at full force toward an absolute domain esper who was busy engaging in battle before quickly retreating to intercept the incoming enemy.
A crisp and clear sound coming from a bone could be heard.
The enemy was stunned. As for the teammate, who obtained aid from Su Hao, he immediately took this perfect opportunity to kill the enemy. However, when he made his move, his body turned stiff as he began having cold sweats. His attacks turned weaker, allowing the enemy to evade.
That great opportunity vanished.
Xie Te stared at that man hatefully. This was not an easy opportunity for Lin Hu to inflict damage. It was so obvious that it’s the key to victory, but how did that slip away from their palm?
Su Hao’s heart had some realizations.
That world esper, indeed he was here!
However, since he’s a world esper, with just a hand, he can kill everyone here. What’s the need to hide? Since he loves his men so much, why expose them to danger? Experience? Is this some kind of joke? Facing people from the Tian family, who would have the luxury to train? The most logical choice would be killing everyone at once and then leave the scene as quickly as possible!
Under what circumstances would the enemy resort to their current choice?
Or perhaps he’s afraid of the consequences?
Su Hao fell into deep thought.
A battle, it’s inexplicable, Su Hao was just playing alone. He just kept defending with no thoughts of offense. As for that member of Team F, he also slowed down his attacks and did not dare to take any drastic actions. Obviously, he had also thought of something terrifying.
As for that other member of Team F who Su Hao had marked, he was even more anxious. Since his men aren’t here yet, this battle mustn’t end. Thus, the most active one was him. He couldn’t lose; neither could he let the enemy win. Also, he mustn’t allow Team F to fail.
A battle that was supposed to be large slowed down.
“Humph! A bunch of newbies!” Xie Te sneered. Thinking that these people were being timid since this was their first mission, he took out a delicate trumpet-like object out of sudden.
“What is this?”
Everyone’s heart skipped a beat as they all turned over here.
At such a critical moment, no one would have thought Xie Te would take it out and play it.
“I thought I mentioned I want this battle to end quick.” Xie Te smirked. He put the little trumpet in front of his mouth. That strange posture caused Su Hao’s heart to pause for a second. This posture, could it be…
“Roar!” Xie Te roared.
A horrible sound wave entered the small trumpet before being amplified and sweeping across the area. Such a terrifying roar entered everyone’s mind, and was literally impossible to resist! Those men who tried to take advantage of them painfully covered their ears while they could barely resist it. Some people were badly affected that all seven apertures on their face bleed.
After the sound wave ended, it was a total mess.
Countless men were injured, and they were helplessly struggling on the ground. Xie Te was just about to get rid of them when his face suddenly changed, “There are more men coming. Quick, let’s leave!”
Everyone heard the sound and didn’t even have the time to pay attention to those on the ground as they quickly left the scene with the Nitai artifacts.
“Leader.” The traitor anxiously said, “Why not kill them when they’re already defeated? If they aren’t killed, soon they will catch up with us. If they are to combine forces with the incoming men…
“Shut up.” Xie Te stared at him coldly, “Who is the leader here? If we kill them, only the later party would be getting an advantage! Time is precious for us. We can’t afford to waste it! There is nothing to worry regarding those chasing us from behind. At least, it’s not an interception from the front. As long as we’re quick enough, we can get rid of them, can’t we?”
“Oh…” The traitor revealed an embarrassed look.
“What an actor.” Su Hao sighed and looked at the time which had passed. Although Xie Te had prevented it once, with this spy in the team, sooner or later, they would get discovered. Sure enough, after only an hour, Team F was once again under attack.
“Still not staying?”
A loud sound rang in their ears.
A burly man with a long stick appeared. With a row of three peak domain espers intercepting them, Xie Te’s calm face finally changed.
Three peak domain espers!
“Again?” Xie Te sighed, “Although a mission will never be smooth sailing, isn’t this a bit too much? Plus, you all are from that bunch of men, right? Hehe, it’s obvious that your men can’t be this quick. To be able to intercept us in front, seems that we do have some spies in our team?”
After all, Xie Te had performed many missions, allowing him to identify the core of the problem.
That spy had a change of expression. He was just about to retreat when he suddenly heard a loud bang, coming from Xie Te’s kick, “Stiff body, pale expression, you think you can keep acting? The moment when you suggested an idea that could destroy our team, I could already guess it was you.”
“Humph, so what if it’s me?” The spy smirked and quickly fled.
Xie Te didn’t move. All he did was press a button on his communication device, “Crack!” That spy, who was escaping, suddenly collapsed and crashed to the ground.
“Although I don’t know why you betrayed the Tian family, you seemed to have forgotten about our Tian family’s footprint?” Xie Te said indifferently.
“Impossible.” The spy’s eyes opened wide, “I have already shielded myself from that footprint.”
“A footprint formed by Rule Force, is that something you can shield?” Xie Te sneered. With the emergence of Rule Force, it made that spy and enemies’ face change.
The Tian family indeed had made an underhand move.
Those three peak domain espers made a move, “Quick, we can’t let our man die!”
“Phew.” Xie Te’s whole body illuminated. At least five Nitai artifacts surrounded his body, emitting a horrifying glow, “Lin Hu, take the items and leave. Leave those guys to me.”
“Alright.” Su Hao nodded and led everyone to leave with the Nitai artifacts.
“Who dares?!” The enemy screamed out loud. With a long stick, an attack sped toward Su Hao and the others.
One Nitai artifact on Xie Te’s body flashed. In just a split second, he arrived in front of Su Hao.
“I said, your opponent is me.”
