Chapter 616 - Life or Death
Tang Wulin held his breath and kept his silence. He didn’t notify the others. He couldn’t. If he even made a faint sound, they would spot him and then might detonate the bomb right off the bat.
There was nothing to be done for it. He had no choice but to wait.
He felt sweat spring out on his forehead; he had never been this close to death before.
The four members of the Green Skull Renegades set up the base proficiently and rushed the soul bomb onto it.
“All the bombs inside have been defused,” sounded Tang Wulin’s earpiece suddenly. “All agents, chase them down. Don’t let them escape! All white-class agents, report!”
“This is white one, all clear.”
“This is white two, all clear!”
But Tang Wulin didn’t report; he never moved a muscle. He fixed his eyes on the movements on the wall, trying to come up with a feasible solution.
“All right. Time to bounce!” The two-word battle armor master on the wall spread his armor’s wings, flapped them, and leapt into the air, followed by the other three.
Gold lines started appearing on the base; obviously, the bomb had been set on a timer.
Considering the speed of battle armor masters, the four members of the Green Skull Renegades only needed 10 seconds to get out of the explosion range, so it was safe to assume this seventh-grade soul bomb would explode in 10 seconds!
“This is white three,” Tang Wulin shouted, jerking himself up and shooting out his vines. “Four enemies are fleeing! A seventh-grade soul bomb is gonna explode! Evacuate immediately!” He grabbed the base with the vines and pulled at it with everything he had.
He was trying to change the direction of the bomb.
Yet the base refused to budge. The gold lines suddenly started shining intensely!
That’s not good! Tang Wulin immediately recognized the situation. It must have an anti-tamper device or something. I have accidentally activated its self-destruct program!
The self-destruct delay time for soul bombs was three seconds.
After three seconds, this place would be razed to the ground.
Three seconds was not nearly enough time for Tang Wulin to get to safety.
At this crucial point, Tang Wulin found himself extremely calm, his eyes golden. With a push, he leapt over to the bomb right away. He threw his arms around the base and tried to yank it off with all his strength.
Maybe he couldn’t damage the solid base, but the stone wall was nothing against Tang Wulin’s strength. The base and the bomb came off in his hand easily.
Then he wasted no time in concentrating all his strength in his right arm, his armor giving out bright light. He started spinning like a top and flung the base and the bomb into the air. All of this happened in just a second
No sooner had the bomb left Tang Wulin’s hand than he jumped again. He was strong, but the bomb and the base were heavy; he knew one throw wasn’t enough. He needed to get the bomb higher in the air.
The moment he jumped up, a golden light flashed from his body – Goldsong. Goldsong was becoming more powerful by the day, and it quickly fused with a vine, making it large and golden. His martial soul was now the Bluesilver Emperor. His fourth soul ring lit up. Bluesilver Overlord Transformation!
Empowered by Bluesilver Overlord Transformation and Goldsong, the vine now looked like an aquatic dragon, which shot at the wall and then pushed Tang Wulin up like a shell out of a mortar.
Only one second left!
His sudden acceleration brought him up to the bomb in a flash. He was now 300 meters high in the sky.
Tang Wulin thrust his palms out. A giant golden dragon head shot out of his fists and towards the bomb! It was Golden Dragon Shocks the Heavens!
It was not an attack this time, but an all-out thrust.
Engulfed in the dragon head, the bomb shot upwards like a rocket, flew over 1,000 meters in an instant, and continued flying up at high speed.
The bomb went off with a loud bang, giving off dazzling light like a giant firework.
It might be colorful, but the horrifying blast seemed to have warped the space around it.
After Tang Wulin pushed the bomb up, the momentum continued to carry him into a place as high as 500 meters.
And now, as the bomb blast reached him, it swatted him down hard like a fly.
He felt a sudden choking sensation in the chest, as if he was about to be torn to pieces. His mask had been reduced to ashes, along with all his clothes. He used Golden Dragon Tyrant Body right away. His figure flashed iridescent.
However, this devastating impact was too strong; Golden Dragon Tyrant Body only lasted for a couple of seconds before disappearing again. He coughed up a mouthful of blood and was about to smash into the ground.
Suddenly, a dark-gold figure flew over to Tang Wulin and caught him in his arms. And then dark-gold light exploded, turned into a barrier, and kept the blast at bay.
He was clad in dark-gold armor with elegant design carved on it, his armor’s wings spread. It was three-word battle armor, and the man was Black One.
Black One hurried here as soon as Tang Wulin reported. It had taken him a while since he had been in the basement.
When he rushed to Tang Wulin’s previous position, he looked up and saw him thrust the bomb away.
The fall and the impact from the explosion might have wounded Tang Wulin severely or even killed him if not for Black One.
The bomb blast had been stopped at a height of 300 meters; that was the power of a three-word battle armor master.
The farther the explosion, the less damage it would do, and Black One’s timely barrier helped a lot. Although the ground shook a little, and the violent roar shattered all the glass within a few kilometers’ radius, it was over without serious damage.
Black One landed on the ground and furled his wings. A look of terror flashed across his face. With his three-word battle armor, he was convinced he could survive such a destructive explosion, but without preparation, even purple-class agents would have been killed, let alone others.
A gentle stream of soul power seeped into Tang Wulin’s body. It was the Mysterious Heaven Method. Black One was helping him soothe his surging blood essence.
“Good job, kid!” Black One’s resounding voice was a sound for Tang Wulin’s sore ears which were still buzzing from the bang.
Tang Wulin coughed up another mouthful of blood. He felt much better now though.
The impact could have torn other people apart, but not him. Between his scary-strong body and his Golden Dragon Tyrant Body, he didn’t end up with serious injuries. And with the power of the Golden Dragon King flowing through his veins, his amazing recovery speed would make him good as new by next morning.
At this moment, several figures flew out from the Star Theater. They looked up at the lingering light in the sky, their eyes wild with terror.
Black One took off his mask and put it on Tang Wulin’s face, and then he wrapped his cloak around his body, since he was completely naked right now.
“Thank you,” Tang Wulin said in a hoarse voice. He could barely stand.
“No, I should thank you!” Black One patted him on the shoulder. He was really excited that a white-class agent had pulled off such a great deed.
“All the bombs have been defused and removed, sir!”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
