Chapter 923: Counterattack 1

“Are mutated measures like these secret methods or medicine?”
A similar thought had crossed Fila’s mind recently. Suddenly, from the
bottom of his field of vision, he saw two blue curved lines shooting
downwards from mid-air that nearly hit the surface of his Mech Body.
“Screen!!” he growled softly.
The Willpower Defense Field System firmly formed in front of his body and
became much more substantial. It blocked both of the blue curved lines
that flew towards his face. The lines did not budge against his force
field for a few moments but disappeared slowly after that.
Meanwhile, two of the three Bodies in front of him had apparently
disappeared without a trace while two shadows appeared beside him on both
sides. Both of them held daggers and pierced them into Fila’s waist
instantly. Cold blue air wafted out of the sharp blades faintly.
For unknown reasons, the speed of both of these Bodies became abnormally
fast. They were now more than one and a half times faster than they were
previously. When Fila reacted, the edges of their blades had already
pierced through his Willpower Field.
A sense of crisis had arrived and he roared frantically as his Willpower
Field twisted itself quickly and stopped the two daggers that flew
towards him on both sides.
He stretched both of his arms and held the head of one Body with each of
them. He smashed them together brutally so that both of the Bodies in
front of him collided against one other in the middle.
At this moment, he was overcome with intense feelings of danger suddenly.
Fila did not even have enough time to think before he dashed upwards into
the sky in an attempt to flee further away from these two Level Five
Bodies. However, he was one step too late.
Two loud explosions could be heard suddenly as the fragments of his
Willpower rolled away in a frenzy with the flames throughout their
surroundings in a range of more than ten meters. As he was unable to
escape in time, Fila was violently swept away as well.
The tremendous explosive force of the impact shook Fila’s Willpower
Field to the verge of collapse, almost destroying it completely. After
all, this was the full strength of the self-explosion of two first-rate
Level Five Mech Pilots.
Just when he had almost breathed a sigh of relief, a huge explosion
occurred right above his head and suddenly came down.
Fila raised his head and happened to see a crimson red fireball falling
from the sky. It was about to fall and collide with his head directly
like a fiery red shooting star.
In the sky above the grassy plains, a frontal collision occurred between
the red shooting star and the White Body. The Body of Fila’s Mech was
completely enveloped by flames, making it impossible for him to see
anything clearly during that time.
When both of the Resonance Mechs from the convoy rushed over to assist
him immediately, everything had ended already.
Both of them and a few remaining Bodyguard Mechs observed the exploding
fireball but none dared to approach it too closely.
“This is the impact of the self-destruction of Level Five Mech Pilots.
They knew much earlier that Master Fila would be in the convoy!” said
one of the Remington Mech Pilots softly with a pained look on his face.
“Pay attention to your surroundings at all times to prevent any more of
the enemy’s sneak attacks!” yelled someone else.
The remaining bodyguards dispersed quickly and stood guard throughout
However, everyone’s attention was still focused on the gigantic red
fireball that was suspended in mid-air. If anything happened to Fila,
they would be in great danger regardless if they resumed their journey by
continuing to go forward or by returning. If their enemy were able to
dispatch formations and ambushes like this, it would definitely occur
again once it had happened the first time. Without Fila’s support, the
ending would be too ghastly to imagine.
The gigantic fireball that had a diameter of over ten meters finally
A White Body that was stained with black burn marks appeared slowly. One
of its arms was charred black while burning flames continued to dance on
the Body. Some sticky-looking substances that were burning fell off its
body and burned black holes of different sizes on the grassy plains
below. They were clearly burning at frightening temperatures.
“Are you alright? Master!”
Two Resonance Mech Pilots asked loudly.
“I’m fine…” Fila sat inside the cockpit with a slightly fearful
look on his face. “When those three Level Five Mech Pilots destroyed
themselves simultaneously, their powers were already enough to pierce
through my Defense Fields, threatening the cockpit. Fortunately, I was
able to block it by sacrificing one of my arms in the end.”
“They are forces that actually dare to oppose our convoy?!” said a
flustered voice from the convoy suddenly. “Uncle Fila, how am I going
to explain to Father if anything happens to you?”
Fila’s Mech Body raised its hand.
“Don’t worry, it’ll be fine once I return and fix it.” He sat
inside the Cockpit with a solemn look on his face.
“Who would be so brave to actually ambush us?!”
“To think that someone would dare to ambush the convoy of Divine Wind
Generals! Most people could not even imagine themselves being so brave!”
“But what if it’s someone within the Divine Wind Generals?” sneered
Fila while interrupting the conversation between the others.
“Someone within Black Flood Party?” said a Resonance Mech Pilot
before becoming silent and not daring to speak anymore. Within a giant
like the Black Flood Party, each Divine Wind General was an Inherited
Mech Pilot whose powers stretched over the two main territories and were
The other voices turned silent at once as well except for Remington who
continued to curse.
However, his father did not have particularly many enemies. Nonetheless,
one would naturally offend many people while on the path to reaching the
level of a Divine Wind General. Most Divine Wind Generals would be
unwilling to make their Level Five Mech Pilots kill themselves while
ambushing a convoy. Therefore, he would not be able to guess the culprit
“Could it be that Nonosiva?” asked Remington angrily.
“It’s unlikely,” Fila shook his head slightly. “It would be
impossible for him to gain such strength so quickly. I thought that it
was caused by one of his people at first but I’m not so certain about
that now. The ability to get three Level Five Mech Pilots to
self-destruct immediately is not something that can be done by the
average person. Even Divine Wind Generals would be pained by this.”
“Then who is it? If I find out who it is, I’ll be damned if I don’t
get Father to slaughter all of them!” said Remington while displaying
his own resentment. However, he did not sound truly furious as this
matter was not any of his business. The real target of the enemy’s
sneak attack was not him but Fila instead. Therefore, he was only anxious
in the beginning but had steadied himself after that.
“Could it be him?” Fila narrowed his eyes and his gaze slightly.
Garen was not shocked at all when he detected information from his Living
Secret Technique that his Distorted Seed had disappeared.
He was currently taking turns with Celine while playing military chess
Both of them sat upright on the balcony outside Celine’s villa. A
gentle breeze blew while soft music played comfortingly.
Celine who was sitting on the opposite side of him moved a chess piece
with one hand while supporting her chin with the other as she yawned.
The afternoon sun shined on both of their bodies and made them feel
Garen lifted a chess piece gently and placed it on an empty spot that
Celine was not paying attention to.
“Ah, I lost again…” Celine looked on helplessly when her General
piece was killed at once. Her hand swiped across the board and scattered
the other pieces messily. “I don’t wanna play anymore. I keep losing
despite playing for more than ten rounds. It’s meaningless now.”
“Then what do you want to play?” Garen smiled.
“I’ve learned the numbing ability that the bald guy used previously.
Why don’t I show you once?” giggled Celine mysteriously at once.
“Are you talking about that Energy Machinist baldy who called himself a
magnetic field?” asked Garen.
“Yes, that numbing ability was pretty neat. Although he used a
consumable substance, it produced some pretty good effects by being able
to paralyze others for two seconds,” Celine nodded. “However, it
wasn’t effective enough against me!” she said with a confident look
on her face.
“If it wasn’t for me previously, I’m afraid that he would’ve done
all he could to molest you, right?” Garen shook his head while smiling.
“Bullshit!” Celine stood up. “I’ve made a huge pile of these toys
so why don’t you take one now and try it?!”
Without even thinking, Garen already knew that this girl had definitely
used a lot of these to create a resistance drug for herself. She had only
come to him now after obtaining complete immunity.
This girl’s had always possessed an abnormally headstrong personality.
“I heard that Fila’s convoy was ambushed.” Garen changed the
subject suddenly because he had too many matters to solve and simply did
not have time to spend his day playing with Celine everywhere.
“Ambushed? How is he? Is he dead?” Celine became interested suddenly
and sat down again.
“Fila is lightly wounded and Remington is fine. Meanwhile, more than
half of the regular bodyguards are dead but the powerhouses are fine,”
answered Garen matter-of-factly.
“What a shame”, Celine shook her head. Suddenly, she raised her head
and glared at Garen again. “It wasn’t caused by someone you sent,
“How would that be possible?!” Garen waved his hands continuously.
“The attackers were Level Five Mech Pilots but so am I. Do you think
that I’m able to influence such high leveled Mech Pilots? You’d need
to know your limits even if you were joking!”
“I know, I know” Celine felt that this was unrealistic as well.
“Whatever, it doesn’t matter whether he’s dead or not. Right, what
do you plan to do since you don’t have enough Ring Light Silver? Your
“Without sufficient Ring Light Silver, I can only use some Level One
items to substitute them this one time. Although its performance will
suffer slightly because of this, I will just be careful to select those
of best quality,” Garen shook his head. “Although my Appraisal is
slightly lower than the other first-rate prodigies, I won’t face any
problems achieving Level Five. As long as I reach Level Five and obtain
my Exclusive Mech, I will be able to enter the Resonance Degrees. I will
need to look at my developments while threading on the next path.”
“That’s true as well. As long as you achieve excellent Appraisal,
your personal development will be the only obstacle that limits your
advancement. Encounters, luck, and power are things that you cannot
lack”, Celine nodded. “How are the preparations of the materials for
your biochemical pool?”
“Almost done. I can begin constructing the cultivation immediately.
It’s being done at an extremely fast speed and will be formed in two or
three more days. Most of my time is being spent on looking for
materials”, Garen said with a smile.
Regarding the biochemical pool, he was extremely looking forward to it
because he was a Level Two Energy Machinist now.
“What about your Energy Machine Imprint? What have you chosen?”
Celine continued to ask.
“I’ve already decided that the first one will be the Investigating
Hawk. Its functions are more practical and I will be able to develop and
evolve it to Level Two in the future. It’s not bad.”
All Energy Machine Imprints would start at low levels initially.
Moreover, once they were determined, they would occupy a location that
could form Imprints. For Energy Machinist, it was extremely important
they could only produce a control space after every two levels.
Therefore, it was an important step to decide which Energy Machine
Imprint would be placed into the control space because they would need to
pay an extremely heavy price if they wanted to change it in the future.
“There’s no need to rush, I’ll decide later once the biochemical
pool is done”, said Garen casually while smiling. He was not anxious at
all because he knew that he would be able to take a huge step and advance
forward if he found an Energy Machine Imprint that could reproduce his
powerful calculation abilities. Compared to most of the other Energy
Machinists who did not have Energy Machine Imprints, they would only
reach the standard of a Level One Energy Machinist after at least ten
years of perseverance and calculation. Meanwhile, after relying on his
powerful Intelligence Attribute, he was able to forcibly break through
the large gap that seemed like a moat between him and the others within a
short span of time. No one knew that he had surpassed these obstacles and
obtained his Level Two Energy Machinist status merely within one or two
After chatting with Celine for awhile, Garen stood up and excused himself
before sitting in the convoy that was surrounded by bodyguards and
returning to his own villa.
Throughout the journey, he recalled the battle scenes that were
transferred back to him through the Distorted Seed.
Other than the abilities of mutated creatures, he had not expected that
the Distorted Seed possessed short-term sensory sharing abilities as
well. This allowed him to temporarily witness the battle scenes.
“The three Level Four Mech Pilots that were hosts of the Distorted Seed
parasites were actually upgraded to the peak of Level Five immediately.
They even possessed radioactive cold air that could increase the energy
consumption of their enemies that were attacking the Energy Fields of
their Bodies. While battling other Level Five Mech Pilots, their combat
abilities were sometimes slightly weaker but the radioactive cold air was
able to make up for the difference. As long as they were not fighting
exceptional, top-notch Mech Pilot prodigies, most of the other Level
Fives would be like this. I really did not expect that the Distorted Seed
would give me such great surprises…”
Garen’s mind considered that the results of this ambush were truly
unexpected. He did not think that the explosion of the Distorted Seeds
would produce such great power. He had only planned to test out an
experiment initially but had now discovered that the effects were
“Now that the Level Four Mech Pilots in my hands have been used up
completely, where else will I be able to find high-level Mech Pilots?”
Garen began to ponder slightly.
“High-level Mech Pilots have always been opponents that were drawn over
by other forces. If those Mech Pilots had not committed crimes that
caused their infamous reputations to be scattered about, which then made
other unwilling to hire them, I wouldn’t have been able to entice them
either. High-level Mech Pilots… High-level Mech Pilots…”, Garen
furrowed his eyebrows and pondered.
