Chapter 164: Your Power WIll Make The Whole World Your Enemy (Part one)
Neil was surprised. “How did you know I would come?”
Xu Cheng: “Ever since I left the police HQ, you had been following me. I’ve been back in my home for an hour now, and I also know why it took you an hour to come up. You needed to make preparations for the perfect assassination and evacuation. You already checked this building’s monitoring system, and half an hour ago, you pretended to be a delivery guy and went and knocked out the security guards before you turned off all the surveillance cameras. Then, you took the master key from the security guards, rode the elevator up, and locked the doors to all the stairways. You are wearing gloves so you don’t plan to leave any evidence behind.”
Neil looked at him with his eyes wide open. At last, he shook his head in disbelief and said, “Unbelievable. How did you know all this? In the West, many of my peers told me that the East has thousands of years of history, and there are mysterious people with mysterious powers. I always thought you people were weak cowards, but now I’ve really seen something new. You are too terrifying, no wonder you could snipe everyone’s plans and nip them at the bud. From my eyes, you basically played the others like a fiddle.”
Then, he chuckled out. “But unfortunately, all the stairways are locked, and you have nowhere to run other than the elevators. This already determines that you will not be leaving this place alive today.”
Xu Cheng laughed. “If I wanted to leave, I would’ve left a long time ago. I seemed to have said something to you before, did you happen to forget?”
Neil: “What is it?”
Xu Cheng: “I said, if you dare to mess around, I won’t let you leave Huaxia alive.”
Neil burst into laughter. “People of Huaxia are indeed arrogant. What makes you feel like you are qualified to say something like this to me? Your time’s up, you messed up my work, and now it’s time for you to die.”
As he said that, he aimed his handgun at Xu Cheng.
Xu Cheng’s eyes narrowed as he said, “Maybe the mysterious power isn’t just what you saw earlier?”
Neil’s eyes narrowed. “What do you mean?”
Xu Cheng: “Nothing. The reason I waited for you was to give myself a little test. I want to see how fast my speed can really reach.”
Neil’s face grimmed and with a silenced shot, the bullet began flying towards Xu Cheng, who was on the sofa a few meters away from the door.
In Xu Cheng’s eyes, when the bullet left the barrel, it seemed like the image was played at a much slower speed, slow enough for his eyes to clearly capture. It looked like ripples in the water as the bullet pierced waves of air and flew towards him.
Reaction, strength, and senses, these were all tested by Xu Cheng back in the 8th Military Region. However, he always felt that those assessments didn’t get to test his limits, and he felt that he couldn’t really force out his limit because he wasn’t feeling the fear of death. There was a type of potential in his body that couldn’t be triggered, and this potential could combine his reaction, speed, strength, and brain-processing speed to immediately raise himself to another level. He had been looking for a state that could trigger this potential, and right now, when the bullet was flying towards him in a way that normal people could never dodge, his subconscious mind felt the danger and make his body instinctively move.
Xu Cheng’s hand drew a trail of afterimages as it lifted into the air, so quick that even Neil couldn’t see clearly. He just suddenly saw Xu Cheng’s hand arrive in front of him. Then, with his hand slowly opening, a bullet fell to the floor, sending chills down Neil’s spine.
He was shocked, and almost entering a state of desperation, he emptied his bullets at Xu Cheng.
