Galactic Dark Net - Chapter 144
Chapter 144: Impasse, Han vs. Star Beasts!
Star beasts, what a herd of terrifying star beasts!
With Han's personality, he obviously wants to kill Lei Yang right away, but he can't do that right now because he suddenly found himself being surrounded by a huge herd of star beasts. Right now is not a problem of how to kill Lei Yang, but how to stay alive!
Han was surrounded by a herd of star apes, which are also known as the universe's smartest star beast.
Star ape's height isn't too high, usually at around 2 meters, even the biggest one among them isn't taller than 2.3 meters.
Black body, blue eyes, eyes gleam with a faint of light.
Due to genetic mutation, there exists a huge difference between star apes and normal apes. They have thicker muscles, upper limb is most prominent, arm length is almost equal to the entire length of their body, claws are at least half meter long, like a row of hooks forged by alloy.
No wonder those galactic pirates' ships were torn open from the outside, there is such a terrifying crowd of star apes living here!
Their power is terrifying, claws are sharp, and they are also equipped with high agility and wisdom. It was even said that some types of star apes, after a long period of study, can learn how to control starships.
Talk about the planet of the apes!
’’Demon Claw, run!’’ Han's face became pale as he loudly ordered Demon Claw.
Demon Claw grabbed Yuan Yuan and Old Mo right away and wanted to carry them and ran into the dark forest.
The nearby star apes quickly gathered. Demon Claw chose a narrow gap and it originally had the way out, but suddenly from the high up in the forest jumped down 7 and 8 star apes that were hiding on the tree. They immediately cut off the escape, forcing Han to hurry and command Earth Claw to come back.
What a clever species, they know how to hide strength and had a few accomplices hiding up there.
’’Do you want to live or die?!’’ Suddenly, Han shouted at Lei Yang.
Lei Yang still maintained caution towards Han, frowned, ’’What idea do you have?’’
’’We form an alliance, and kill our way out of here!’’ Han looked around, deepened his voice and said.
’’Impossible, this is star ape, the smartest and most powerful star beast in this galaxy. There are at least 60 to 70 of them, that much number, this time we are dead for sure!’’ Lei Yang's face became very pale as he said in despair.
With no expression, Han said, ’’First, we are surrounded by 83 star apes, you counted wrong.’’
Lei Yang was slightly shocked, such a short time, Han already had a clear idea of how many enemies there are?
’’Secondly, this isn't the place that the apes planned to kill you at. The reason they suddenly appeared is because they did not expect me to kill you! In the distance, there must be even greater number of apes ambushing! Han continued to shout out his judgments.
’’Wait! You are saying that the star apes want to ambush me?’’ Lei Yang asked with a face of disbelief.
’’Idiot! They started eyeing you the moment you landed, and the reason they hadn't kill you yet was because they want the possessions left behind by the Dark King too. But the treasure was submerged in the black water which is deadly to them, so they were using you! They were just waiting for you to help them bring up the treasure first!’’
’’The three warships that were waiting for your return, 2 Petrel-class and 1 Thorax-class were already turned into scrap ribbons! I saw it on my way here!’’
’’Star apes are very smart, they didn't plan to kill you near the black lake because they are afraid of that deadly water, so they set the ambush point at a place further away from danger. But my sudden appearance disrupted their plan so they had no choice but to surround us first. They are probably scared that I will destroy the Dark King's treasure after killing you!’’ Han continued.
Yang Lei swallowed a mouthful of spittle.
The fighters left guarding were killed, even the transportation vehicle needed to leave this place is destroyed. An ambush on the path of return, if what Han said is true, then these star apes are way too terrifying!
’’You say, what we should do.’’ Lei Yang's attitude suddenly took a 180-degree turn and began inquiring Han.
’’My third point is, star ape is a rare gregarious animal among star beasts, every group of star apes must have a leader. Usually, the black star apes are the lowest level of the population and their leader must be the biggest and a different color star ape!’’
’’Whatever these damn apes are scared of, we will give them that! Listen to my command, we will back up to the black lake together!’’ Han immediately yelled.
The blood flow is accelerated!
All along, Han has the characteristic of being stronger in more difficult situations. In this situation of narrowly walking between the points of life and death, Han didn't feel despair but became more excited, it's an unprecedented excitement!
’’After we withdraw to the pool, then what?’’ Lei Yang came closer to Han and asked.
’’After we get to the water, I will naturally have a way to deal with them! I will open the path and you cover the rear!’’
’’Got it!’’ Lei Yang gritted his teeth, forced himself to act. Even a vicious person, will also have the strong desire to survive.
’’Han, I'm sorry. You came to rescue me but I dragged you down!’’ Old Mo's face is almost covered in tears, with Yuan Yuan in his arms he said with a husky voice.
He could not believe that he will meet Han again here, but the situation is too unfavorable. Facing with a herd of powerful yet brilliant star apes, the chances of escaping alive is close to none, and that makes Old Mo feel very guilty.
’’No need to say more!’’ Han said firmly, ’’This is already not just your problem, it's a problem of how all of us can survive!’’
Old Mo nodded, wiped away his tears, he knew, Han must be doing fast calculations inside his brain right now, and it's not wise to interfere Han's thoughts with words of gratitude.
Time passed second after second, under the siege of a large group of star apes, every second is the most painful torment.
’’When do we move?’’ Lei Yang couldn't help but ask.
’’You shut up! Listen to my command!’’ Han relentlessly yelled at Lei Yang.
There's something Old Mo guessed wrong. At the moment, Han's not just making plans in his head, but madly calculating!
Environment, distance, enemy distribution, accessible paths, enemy reinforcement, all of everything must be prepared ahead of time to make the most accurate judgement!
The real elite fighters have never been simple-minded warriors. Although Han's nickname is Tough Bone Han, one of the most courageous fighters in this galaxy, but he never lacked the wisdom and tactical ability.
Han felt the earth with a faint wave of tremble, as if something is coming towards them to kill. At the same time, a tearing roar came from the distance.
’’Coming! The star ape king is coming!’’ Han shouted in his heart.
All the star apes guarding around Han heard the sound and all instinctively raised their head in what appears to be a salute and looked into the distance.
’’Now!’’ Han shouted, then he dashed his whole body forward and started running!
That's the moment Han had been waiting for!
Because the star apes work in herds, they have a natural fear and respect of the leader. So when the star ape king's roar came, all the star apes' mind went blank for a brief moment!
The Star Pierce Moon Slaying Blade came out of nowhere, with it in Han's hand, he charged towards the direction of the lake. And behind him, Lei Yang also took out his 12 edge compound blade again.
With the frenzied attacks of the 6 Paths of Void, Han charged at the front and instantly turned a few star apes into star ribbons.
Lei Yang immediately followed behind Han, the 12 blades flew up and down, although not as ferocious as Han's forbidden technique, but its advantage is its larger area of defense coverage. Han decided to be the vanguard himself and leave the back to Lei Yang, seems like he had already taken that into account.
Han had a very clever choice with timing. Just when all the apes became mind absent for a brief moment, Han already slayed the few star apes that were blocking the front.
To the star apes, Han must be stopped from going back to that black lake, he must be stopped at all cost!
After all, that weird pool of black water is too terrifying! Anyone that touches it will immediately melt into a pool of pus, with no flesh and bone remaining!
For all these years, the star apes were eager to get the dark treasure left behind by the Dark King, but because of that black pool of water, they always had no way of doing so.
Finally, mankind came, and star apes know that humans are good at using tools and perhaps they can utilize them.
And that's why they allowed Lei Yang and his crew to safely enter the Dark Forest and go to that dark lake.
Now that the humans finally retrieved the treasure, how could the star apes give up right now!
So when Han decided to ran back towards the water, the star apes were shocked and wanted to stop Han at all cost.
As a result, this gave Demon Claw an opportunity!
Demon Claw grabbed Yuan Yuan and Old Mo right away and burst into the side forest without even looking back.
Old Mo and Yuan Yuan were completely shocked, Han can't even save his own life right now and he's still thinking about how to protect Old Mo and a small robot?
They obviously know, if Demon Claw was kept by Han's side, Han would at least have a helper and that's equivalent to having more hope of survival.
But the order Han gave Demon Claw was actually to take advantage of the chaos and rescue Yuan Yuan and Old Mo, and run as far away as possible!
’’If we can survive this, I will do anything for you during this lifetime of mine!’’ Old Mo exclaimed in his heart with mixed feelings.
From Han's location just now to the dark water is only a 500 to 600 meters of distance.
But when facing a group of terrifying star apes, this 500 to 600 meters of distance is seemingly 50 or 60 light years long!
’’Super nuclear energy, ten dose!’’
’’Bloodthirsty Dark Wind Vine, kill!’’
’’Advanced explosive insect, thunderbolt! Blast!’’
Han has never been simply a soldier, and there are just way too many cards up in his sleeves!
Forbidden art! Drugs! Using the dark wind vine to strangle the star apes! Using explosive bugs to blow up enemies in the way! And using the power of darkness to deliver blows!
All forces fully activated!
Anything that can play the role of attack, Han just need to throw them all out at once!
And the Lei Yang that's following Han were almost stunned by just looking at Han go!
Almost all the star apes went to attack Han, and even so, Han can still make it that far?
What a brutal fighting strength!
83 star apes that surrounded Han, more than 30 were killed by Han without taking any breaks!
Lei Yang questioned himself, assuming that he was the one leading the escape, he probably can't achieve the same effect as Han.
And that's because there's a huge gap between Han and him. Aside from forbidden art, Han doesn't know any other techniques at all. Aside from battle equipment that are illegally acquired, Han doesn't use anything else. Han is indeed a dweller of the galactic dark net. Lei Yang is already considered evil for being a galactic pirate, but after he saw Han's forbidden techniques and drugs, he suddenly discovered, in comparison to Han, he's actually a good man!
Too evil, all the things Han used are way too scary! Many of his insidious techniques were not even seen before by Lei Yang!
The battle is very cruel and tough, even though Han has done his best, but now all the star apes have been recovered from the brief absence and tried their best to stop Han.
Their arms allow them to rip open the thick tritanium armor of those three star ships, and as a group they also know the basis of tactics, thus making their combat power as strong as Han has ever encountered!
For the last 100 meter, Han's like a spent force, and he could not rush past no matter what!
Without saying anything, Han quickly touched his dimension ring, and when the others look again, there's already a shoulder-fired laser cannon on Han!
Han has been carrying this thing for quite a long time but has never used it. At today's impasse it's time for it to play a role!
’’Are you crazy?! Laser cannons can't hit those apes! They are too quick!’’ Lei Yang was desperately struggling as he yelled.
In his view, using the laser cannon is definitely a stupid idea.
The reason why shoulder-fired laser cannons aren't popularly adopted in the Milky Way, aside from how there's only a few since humans can't manufacture it and can only find them in extinction domains, there's also another important reason: this thing is great with landing shots on ordinary people, but not soldiers!
Esper soldiers have super quick nerve response, and the moment a shot is fired, the esper soldier can just reply on perception and instinct to escape.
And these star apes, their speed and agility are way stronger than esper soldiers!
If Han wants to use laser cannon to hit star apes, that's simply impossible!
Unfortunately, Han already made up his mind, pulling the trigger right after arming the laser cannon!
A white light burst out!
These apes hurried and hopped away from Han, face full of ridicule, as if teasing Han's stupidity. In their eyes, the power of the laser weapon is way weaker than Han's blade.
They just heard a loud noise, the star apes looked back, and they were all scared trembling and scattered immediately.
The reason is simple!
Han never intended to hit the apes with laser, he was aiming at that deadly pool of water!
Under the strong laser bombardment, the deadly black lake water directly splashed out, covering the sky!
That's Han's strategy!
He's not only the most ’’evil’’ one among fighters, but also the most desperate one! He's a mad man that can throw his life away when trying to win!
Now the situation is, the deadly black water started to fall down like a rain storm.
A single drop touches you, and you will die!
