Chapter 823: Mid-air Hijacking

Tang Wulin's downward velocity gradually began to slow, and a faint smile appeared on his face.

Does he really think that I'd be powerless in this situation? I've already devised a strategy well in advance! 

The versatility of his Bluesilver Emperor really shone through in times like these. If this were still his Bluesilver Grass, then it naturally wouldn't be able to withstand such a strong impact. However, he now possessed Bluesilver Emperor vines, and with the enhancement of his Bluesilver Overlord Transformation, it was very easy for those vines to support his weight.

However, a smile had only just appeared on his face before his expression abruptly stiffened as a pair of Skyglide 17 aircrafts had just flown past him.

The Northsea Legion reacted way too quickly!

The two aircrafts swerved around, and when they appeared before Tang Wulin again, they had slowed down significantly. He was then greeted by the sight of a massive net being blasted toward his body.

It was mid-air detainment all over again.

This was the second time he'd faced mid-air detainment, and on the previous occasion, he'd used his Tyrant Dragon to foil the Northsea Legion's detainment efforts. However, that was clearly not applicable in this situation.

He was situated in the air above a region of the ocean that was close to the Northsea Legion base, and if he were to fall down to the ground here, he would be captured right away.

However, as opposed to being alarmed by the mid-air detainment nets, Tang Wulin was quite elated to see them instead. His body was quickly swept up by the net, and the torture that he'd suffered at the hands of Old Demon Nightmare proved to be very beneficial in this situation as he was able to at least avoid being knocked out by the sudden impact.

A powerful electric current ran through the detainment net, and Tang Wulin's body immediately became numb. His suit of battle armor appeared of its own accord to protect him. Tang Wulin harrumphed coldly as he swept both hands through the air, and two Bluesilver Emperor vines surged upward before wrapping themselves around the tail of one of the aircrafts.

The pilots of the Northsea Legion clearly didn't envision this to be a problem. Capturing parachuting invaders in mid-air was one of the simplest tasks for them. Generally, as soon as the invader was struck by the net, they would be knocked out by the impact, and even if they managed to remain conscious through this process, the subsequent electric current would definitely knock them out.

As long as they weren't capturing two-word battle armor masters or beings more powerful than that, mid-air detainments were always very smooth and simple. Unfortunately, they were coming up against Tang Wulin, whose body was definitely no less powerful than that of a two-word battle armor master.

Tang Wulin quickly climbed onto the aircraft using his Bluesilver Emperor vine as a rope. At this point, this Skyglide 17 aircraft was already making its way back to the base. Tang Wulin slowly approached the cockpit, and the pilot was flying the aircraft along in a smooth manner when he was suddenly struck by the feeling that a shadow had appeared overhead. Just as he was feeling rather perplexed by this, he suddenly heard a tapping sound.

He reflexively looked up to find Tang Wulin laying sprawled out above the canopy of the cockpit, waving his hand at him. He seemed to be gesturing for the pilot to get out.

The pilot was greatly alarmed, but to his credit, he reacted very quickly, instantly initiating a barrel roll maneuver with his aircraft.

However, right at this moment, a loud shattering sound rang out, and a pair of shimmering golden claws had broken through the reinforced glass canopy above him. In the next instant, Tang Wulin squeezed his way into the cockpit before immediately pressing the eject button.

"Goodbye!" The pilot was ejected out of the aircraft while it was still in the process of completing its barrel roll. The pilot would definitely have a parachute, so there was no need to worry about him. Using his sharp golden dragon claws, Tang Wulin was able to firmly stabilize himself within the tumbling aircraft. Immediately thereafter, a series of Bluesilver Emperor vines rapidly shot forth before wrapping themselves around the aircraft, temporarily sealing the cockpit.

Tang Wulin grabbed onto his own Bluesilver Emperor vines and clambered onto the pilot's seat before pressing a sequence of buttons in an extremely well-rehearsed manner.

At this moment, a siren was blaring within the Skyglide 17 Aircraft, and the first thing that Tang Wulin did was cut off his communication with the control tower. He then grabbed onto the control shaft and righted the plane in an expert manner.

"Whoosh!" Another Skyglide 17 aircraft quickly whizzed past him. It was clearly the other aircraft that had also been sent out to detain him. The aircraft quickly flew over before releasing its mid-air detainment net, aiming to ensnare the entire aircraft that Tang Wulin was piloting.

However, he certainly wasn't going to allow himself to be captured! He pushed the control shaft down, and the aircraft swerved downward to evade the massive net with ease. Immediately thereafter, flames erupted from the turbojet propeller as the aircraft was launched through the air, bypassing the other aircraft and speeding directly toward the demonic island.

The other aircraft clearly wasn't willing to let him go, and due to the fact that Tang Wulin had cut off all communication, a string of cannon blasts rang out as the pilot decided to take him down by force.

Tang Wulin remained completely unflustered as his hands flew over the control panel, guiding their aircraft to complete a series of evasive maneuvers.

Unbeknownst to him, the skill that he'd just executed was known as the Bat Maneuver. 

Bats were able to complete all types of agile evasive maneuvers through the use of their supersonic sensory waves, and its evasive maneuvers were also among the most unpredictable in the animal kingdom. All of the attacks coming from behind completely missed their target, and Tang Wulin suddenly swerved the aircraft around before suddenly executing a somersault, carving out a perfect trajectory in the air. When it reappeared, it was already behind the other aircraft.

Tang Wulin hesitated momentarily, but decided against attacking the other aircraft in the end. Instead, he abruptly accelerated and flew down toward the sea.

The pilot of the other aircraft was naturally quite alarmed that the enemy had appeared behind him, and he hurriedly initiated a series of evasive maneuvers, thinking that he was under threat. However, when he realized that Tang Wulin's aircraft was flying away from him, it was already too late for him to catch up.

For a Skyglide 17 aircraft flying at full speed, 30 kilometers could be covered in the blink of an eye. Light flashed, and the aircraft that Tang Wulin was piloting had already vanished into the invisible barrier around the demonic island.

"Woohoo!" Tang Wulin let loose a cry of elation in the convertible aircraft as he pumped his fists. Under his control, the aircraft made a smooth landing, and at this point, Old Demon Nightmare had only just returned not long ago.

A peculiar look flashed through Old Demon Nightmare's eyes as he looked at the elated Tang Wulin.

"You look like you're really pleased with yourself." Old Demon Nightmare appraised Tang Wulin with an indifferent expression.

Tang Wulin's smile faded, and he looked at Old Demon Nightmare in a wary manner as he said, "I did what you asked and stole another plane for you; you're going to release my friends now, right?"

Old Demon Nightmare chuckled, "Release them? When did I promise to release them? Why don't you take a look at their current situation."

He waved his right hand through the air as he spoke and conjured up an image that Tang Wulin had already seen once before.

However, on this occasion, clouds of pink mist had already inundated all three of the caves.

"You..." Tang Wulin was absolutely horrified, and all of his excitement and elation vanished in a flash.

A sinister smile appeared on Old Demon Nightmare's face. "Whoops, I accidentally let the mist seep out. This is kind of troublesome, isn't it?"

Tang Wulin stepped forward and immediately swept his golden dragon claws toward Old Demon Nightmare with all his might. He had been tortured for so long and finally completed Old Demon Nightmare's condition, yet he...

Tang Wulin was borderline deranged right now.

If his friends were to engage in those activities with one another...

How could they live with themselves?!

An illusionary light flashed, and Tang Wulin's attack fell upon empty air.

Old Demon Nightmare waved his right hand, and the pink mist in the three caves immediately abated before reverting back into their ball forms.
