Chapter 81: Let me do it!
The two blades that suddenly appeared behind Shi Xiaobai were like two demonic hunting blades that slashed straight at his neck and stabbed towards his back. The cold clammy hands of Death approached Shi Xiaobai in an instant!
“Crab Steps’ proximity chasm.”
The two blades were just a few centimeters short of making contact with his tender skin, but Shi Xiaobai’s figure had disappeared. Nearly in a blink of an eye, he was already more than ten meters away, causing DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld’s blades to slice through thin air. As he took a few steps forward to stabilize his body, he looked up at Shi Xiaobai, as though he had seen a ghost.
Such a terrifying acceleration burst allowed him to travel more than ten meters away in an instant, and why was his motion so minute that he could not even sense it?
No, that was something only superpowers could accomplish. There was no superpower system in the virtual world, so…how did this guy do it?
DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld realized that the usually calm him could no longer calm down!
“Phew, that was close!”
Shi Xiaobai was the one who felt slightly apprehensive. GunfireInTheWorld’s service quality was indeed excellent, causing him to nearly fall into a daze. He had nearly been hit, however, Shi Xiaobai loved this harrowing experience!
“Good job, one more time, baby!”
Shi Xiaobai spoke in incompetent English as his eyes were filled with fighting spirit.
Shi Xiaobai had already keenly detected ThatTenderOneShot who was hidden in the tree, but he did not expose him. He even attempted to forget this sniper. He wished for more harrowing experiences and hoped that he could experience more of such dangerous moments. Only by doing so could he surpass his own limitations.
GunfireInTheWorld and DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld did not know Shi Xiaobai’s wish and thought Shi Xiaobai was humiliating and provocating them. The hot tempered GunfireInTheWorld naturally could not take this lying down, while the always calm DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld began to feel infuriated.
“Be careful, his Psionic Ability realm is at least the tenth level of the Psionic Mortal Realm.”
DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld made a sound to alert GunfireInTheWorld as he raised his blades to attack.
“I got it. How can I be dumb enough to not tell that he’s an expert at the tenth level of the Psionic Mortal Realm?”
After changing his magazine, GunfireInTheWorld aimed the barrel at Shi Xiaobai once again. He was already of the mindset that the clown in front of him was definitely at the tenth level of the Psionic Mortal Realm. It was a professional hitman hired by [Gaia] branch!
When Sweets, who was in the commentator stands, heard this, she could not help but giggle. “If they were to know contestant DogLeading is only at the third level of the Psionic Mortal Realm, I wonder if they will find themselves especially dumb?”
Sweets laughter suddenly came to a stop. She suddenly scrunched up her face as though she was about to cry. “Why do I think I’m the one who is actually very dumb?”
Sweets was not the only one feeling dumb. Nearly every member in the audience was dumbfounded, especially when they saw what happened next.
DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld charged at Shi Xiaobai like a beast while brandishing the two blades in his hands. He began using a dazzling offensive skill but Shi Xiaobai hopped sideways to dodge every one of them. The posture he had when dodging was as natural and unrestrained as it could be. He was like a freestyle dancer, while the blade beams were like disco lights and DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld’s angry grunts were like accompaniment music.
“Da Da Da…”
GunfireInTheWorld once again sprayed his bullets like a madman, but this time the way he sprayed was even more sad and lonesome. This was because Shi Xiaobai no longer side hopped around for him to shoot at him. His figure began to flutter through the woods as though he was a joyful butterfly.
Fuck that butterfly!
GunfireInTheWorld was close to tears as he changed a magazine while holding back his tears. Dozens of trees had been toppled by his bullets, and his surroundings looked desolate, but that figure was still jumping around without any hindrance.
From time to time, Shi Xiaobai would be moving or staying still. Regardless of how intense GunfireInTheWorld’s bullets were raining at him or how heated DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld attacks were, he was still like a leisurely crab. He would occasionally deceitfully make fake moves and at other times face the attack head on. It was as though he was telling them—without sparing their feelings—how miserable it meant to be “even if I stood here for you to give me a beating, you would not be able to hit me”.
GunfireInTheWorld and DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld found themselves completely exasperated, but they did not feel despair. They still did their best to persist on, because they knew that there was someone waiting for a chance. That patient sniper had never let anyone down.
ThatTenderOneShot was very cold and calm!
Alright, in fact, ThatTenderOneShot was extremely stunned at this moment. His finger was already placed on his trigger for several minutes, but he still failed to find the best opportunity. Ever since Shi Xiaobai began using Crab Steps, he was surprised to realize that he could not get a concise aim!
Shi Xiaobai had clearly stayed still several times, but ThatTenderOneShot kept feeling like he was constantly moving. He could not even target Shi Xiaobai despite him remaining stationary for a full second.
This was a crab that could not stop and was forever moving!
ThatTenderOneShot was in no hurry to pull the trigger. As a sniper, he was used to dealing a single fatal shot. This was because the moment he made his shot, he would expose his presence and location. The next shot would no longer have the same beneficial conditions, so sealing victory with a single shot was always his mantra. He had to have full confidence in that one shot!
He could see the hard work put in by GunfireInTheWorld and DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld, and he had received the hopes that they had placed in him.
“Keep it up, brothers. I will not disappoint you.”
ThatTenderOneShot rubbed his eyes and stretched his back. After changing to a more comfortable position, he was done with the preparations for a long battle.
As for the other two people, they could no longer persist much longer. GunfireInTheWorld’s bullets were nearly expended, while DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld’s Psionic Power and stamina were nearly drained!
“What a terrifying conservation of Psionic Power. This rascal can’t be a Psionic Soul Realm expert, right? It doesn’t abide to the rules!”
DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld was extremely astonished seeing the leisurely Shi Xiaobai who did not look exhausted at all. He found that Shi Xiaobai’s Psionic Power reserves seemed massive as he did not appear to be exhausted despite using the flash motion movement techniques repeatedly.
“Is contestant DogLeading really at the third level of the Psionic Mortal Realm?” Sweets posed the same question in the commentator stands.
“I can’t tell for sure now. Only when he uses a offensive or defensive skill will I be able to judge his Psionic Ability realm. However, I believe contestant DogLeading does not appear exhausted not because of his massive Psionic Power store, but because he has outstanding comprehension over the allocation of Psionic Power.” Biscuit said calmly.
Sweets responded with a terse exclamation before hesitating for a moment. She suddenly asked, “Dad Biscuit, if I’m not wrong, contestant DogLeading is using Crab Steps at the Exemplary Mastery realm, right? But why do I keep feeling that his Crab Steps…how should I say it…seems different?”
Biscuit gave a faint smile as he said softly, “You are still young. Your horizons are still somewhat limited. Contestant DogLeading’s Crab Steps is no ordinary Crab Steps. If I’m not wrong, it’s the legendary…divine crab!”
Sweets and the audience ruminated over the two words, as though they had heard of it before, but could not recall what it was.
Sweets was about to ask in detail when she suddenly saw something out of the ordinary on the screen. Her voice came to a stiff halt.
At this moment, GunfireInTheWorld and DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld had given up their struggles. One lowered his machine gun while the other sheathed his two blades back into the scabbards by his hips. They were already cognizant of the cruel reality.
GunfireInTheWorld puffed as he looked at Shi Xiaobai and said hatefully, “Is smurfing interesting?”
Shi Xiaobai said with a lamenting expression, “Don’t give up. Persistence is the key to victory. You know what they say, where there’s a will, there’s a way, when the will is ready, the feet are light, people do not lack the strength, they lack will…”
Shi Xiaobai used all the proverbs in his head in an attempt to make the two of them regain their will.
Alright, what was mentioned was not the incident that stopped Sweets from asking.
The incident was a person running desperately.
The person held a spear and his eyes were flaring with flames of anxiousness. As he used Wind Walk, he ran as fast as he could.
That person was no other than WindWithoutTrace.
At this moment, WindWithoutTrace was naturally extremely anxious. From afar, he saw the clown being surrounded by the other three-man team. It was as though a woman had met a gang of evil thugs.
No, this easily obtainable Energy Pearl is mine!
With this thought in mind, WindWithoutTrace shouted loudly from three hundred meters away, “Let go of that kid, I’ll do it!”
