Chapter 63: Darkness Awakened
Power, endless power!
With Han slowly transforming into a being of darkness, his power was growing at an extraordinary rate. In the past, Han tried to overdose himself with lots of drugs and after swallowing 10 times the normal dosage, Han became almost invincible and could even single-handedly go against enemies 10 times his strength.
However, this was fundamentally different. Han felt that the power originating from the darkness was more substantial, it was like a power that belonged only to him! On the other hand, the power gained through drugs was comparably more unreliable which faded away after the drugs’ effects passed.
The Darkness not only brought Han tremendous power, but also the Eye of Darkness!
Now, when Han’s eyes looked at Lucas’s body, he could clearly see the paths of Lucas’s source energy flow, the zero-degree brain region that was rapidly working, and even the enemy’s bone marrow!
I must kill him!
Han shouted internally louder and louder.
It was unbelievable, the half-dark transformed Han was like a god of war descending from above, and began to chase and attack Lucas like a madman.
As Han’s strength rapidly increased, his handling of the Silver Moon Crescent Blade also became more and more fierce, aiming straight at Lucas’s combat suit, leaving behind clearer and clearer marks! The cuts were deeper and deeper. As this continues, Lucas’s defense will undoubtedly fall apart sooner or later!
“I want your life!” Inspired by the energy of darkness, Han suddenly shouted and slashed down with full power!
This time, there was actually the sight of blood!
Han violently tore apart Lucas’s combat suit, and he began to slice through flesh and chop up bones!
Han’s killing intent became larger and larger, cuts after cuts landed on Lucas’s body, and Lucas’s originally tall and big figure became smaller and smaller, into smaller and small pieces!
An unimaginable degree of violence!
The head of all evil, the chief of the Thorn Birds Gang, Lucas was cut into pieces, by the hands of Han. Cut into pieces while he was still alive!
“You all need to die!”
Immediately turning around, Han stared with his black right eye and shouted.
Combining both the void end and the power of darkness produced devastating attacks that were capable of eliminating the last glimmer of hope from the remnants of the outlaws!
Han’s attacks were basically two steps. First, take away all the enemies’ powers!
Second, use the powerful strength of the darkness and annihilate the enemies to the last one!
“Whoever dares to blocks me, DIE!”
Almost one hit one kill, Han charged straight into the enemy crowd using his brutal and merciless attacks and sliced through all the enemies in front of him!
Suddenly, Han opened up a path of blood. His speed was incredible and even his comrades in the Wolf Fang squad were left far behind.
What if he accidently went too far and missed someone?
Of course he would just turn around, and kill the on his way back!
The Atlantic Cruiser, medical cabin.
The war was already over. Long Chuan laid on his deathbed, looking at Han that was busy by his side.
Originally, Long Chuan didn’t intend on going back to Earth alive. He knew that he didn’t have much time, and being able to contribute to Earth one last time was his greatest wish.
However, things didn’t progress as Long Chuan originally planned, and the Long Chuan that had already decided to sacrifice himself was saved by Han.
Originally, Long Chuan wanted to detonate his zero-degree brain region and die with Lucas and the other aces of the outlaw alliance. However, before Long Chuan even got the chance to, Han sprang right out, chasing and killing. He even chopped Lucas into pieces while he was still alive as well as killing countless enemies, fully displaying his potential as a super executioner.
So Long Chuan didn’t die, he just passed out due to a drug overdose. Han read Night Walker’s pharmacology book, and had Long Chuan take 6 zero-degree joy pills. Miraculously, Long Chuan slowly came back to life again.
As well, Han seemed to have returned to normal. The black color that was on his face and arm had already receded. He was back to normal now, with that friendly and humble smile on his face again.
The contrast was really huge! Just now, everyone witnessed how Han turned from a soldier into a demon and how he killed more enemies than the rest of the Wolf Fang squad combined. The deep cuts and traces of blood on his Black Kylin combat suit was the best proof.
“Come on, let’s drink this.”
Han melted a couple of pills and fed it to Long Chuan. Without the proper machines, Han can only use the emergency measures he read from that book.
Gudong~ Gudong~ (TL: sound of drinking)
Long Chuan thought for a bit, and then he drank the entire bowl of bitter medicine as instructed by Han, and continued to use strange eyes to stare at Han, as if he was looking at a monster.
“Don’t look at me, I don’t know what happened either. I was just really mad back then, and that seemed to have trigger some sort of power that I had never experienced before, that’s all.”
Han tried to explain to Long Chuan why he suddenly erupted. Long Chuan nodded, and didn’t say anything else.
At this time, Long Chuan’s three deputies arrived. Osman was the vice-captain of the Atlantic, while Soros and Wu Chengfeng were the deputy army chiefs of 1st Legion.
All three of them were injured, but they don’t care at all and seemed really excited.
Osman clenched his fist and said, “Chief, the record’s out. The Atlantic and Special Tactical troops destroyed 24 battleships, seized 4 destroyers and 7 frigates! After this war, now we have 12 battleships! Now we can really claim to have a fleet with a pretty good combat strength!”
Wu Chengfeng immediately said, “For the ground war, we lost 2389 soldiers, but our legion annihilated more than 15,000 enemy soldiers! It’s an unimaginably huge victory!”
Long Chuan felt that this victory is worth celebrating. He was just going to say some words of celebration, but suddenly his noticed that Han slightly frowned.
Curious, Long Chuan asked, “Han, the result of our victory has finally come out. Our brothers fought a hard battle and they are not quite tired. I want to give order to clean up the battlefield and return to Earth for a rest. What do you think?”
“We can’t go back now!” Han was anxious and he blurted out.
Long Chuan and his 3 deputies all looked curiously at Han, Long Chuan asked sincerely, “Why not return to Earth? You made a significant contribution this war and everyone saw it. There’s no outsider in this room, so relax and speak boldly.”
Han nodded and said, “Although the battle’s already over, but these raiders and pirates all have their own base. If we leave them, they will come back and seek revenge for sure. If I’m the commander, I would lead the brothers that can still fight and head straight to the enemy base! We will cut the grass and remove the roots for complete eradication! As for here, we just need to leave behind a small troop enough to clean the battlefield and then send all the wounded soldiers back home.”
“After all these years living outside of the law, these raiders and pirates must be hiding a good amount of wealth. In the past they robbed us. Now it’s our turn to rob them! As for the enemies that were left back home, we need to deliver a fatal blow! We need to kill them all! Rob everything! Lastly, we will incinerate the enemy’s lair!”
Osman slightly hesitated and whispered, “You know that this is the Three All Policy (TL: Kill all, take all, and destroy all)… After all, we, the Earth Federation, are still a lawful country, and the Milky Way’s law of preferential treatment of prisoners still apply here.”
“F**K that rule!” Han immediately retorted, “The Atlantic and all those battleships we robbed from the enemies all need repair when we go back, and all the soldiers’ equipment need change and repair. As well, the Earth’s Federation needs to expand the esper legion’s scale, and all of these need money!”
“As long as Earth can safely endure through this time of crisis, I don’t care about any rules! Instead of just guarding our C-class mine and make the small change, I prefer grabbing more. We should drive our fleet to the enemy’s lair and start robbing right away! Time is running out, if the enemies get the message that their main force were all annihilated, then it will be too late!”
“Tooth for a tooth, an eye for an eye! They dare to kill our citizens, then we will annihilate their entire clan!”
Long Chuan and the others were all awed by Han’s words. For them, this battle’s victory was good enough to let them feel satisfied. But Han felt like that was not enough, and he could only feel satisfied if they drove directly into the enemy’s lair and stomped them into the ground.
Long Chuan thought for a moment, and gestured Han to leave first, so Han turned around and exited the room, leaving only Long Chuan and his three deputies there.
“Han’s only 17…” Long Chuan sighed deeply, and said with some emotion, “Now that Earth has young people like Han to protect, even if I die I can rest in peace.”
Osman nodded, “Han’s personality is cruel, but yet very warranted. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t even realize that we could take advantage of this opportunity and storm the enemy’s lair. So, what should we do?”
Long Chuan’s eyes briefly scanned across his three deputies. His eyes suddenly became cold, and he said in a deep voice, “Do what Han said. Gather the brothers and we will immediately move out to wipe out their lair!
On a little unknown planet in the Milky Way, Night Walker sat in his office, slightly frowned, and gently adjusted his glasses.
For some reason, Night Walker’s right eyelid had been jumping for the entire day today, and it was making him feel unease, as if there was something on his mind.
Night Walker stood up from his chair, and started pacing back and forth in the middle of his office.
“Could it be something happened?” Night Walker scratched his chin and said to himself.
There was a row of bookshelves in his office. He stopped in front of them and gently pressed a button hidden behind a shelf. After his identity was verified, the bookshelf automatically moved aside and revealed a hidden safe in the wall.
Night Walker opened the cabinet and checked the items inside one by one. Some represented the badges of glories from his past, some were his hand-written notes, and there was a small rosewood box, placed in the bottom of the safe.
When Night Walker picked up that little box, his hands slightly shivered. The patterns on that wooden box were ancient yet still clear, emitting an indescribable aura, and the box itself was actually shaking in a very rhythmic way.
Night Walker began to get nervous, his heartbeat accelerated, and clear veins appeared on his forehead.
He quickly opened this mysterious rosewood box. The inside was covered with red velvet, and embedded inside was half a heart, or an unknown object that really looked like half of a human heart.
At this moment, this black and mysterious heart-shaped object, was actually beating! It was even a rhythmic beat! As if it was revived!
