Chapter 111: Inquisitor (Part 2/2)

Translator: Strivon

Luo Nan had a bad feeling ever since they left the room .

They had embarked after they rendezvoused with Bai Xinyan . Their route was none other than the area swept by the sniper bullet trajectories not so long ago . The amusement center was completely empty and all they saw was a complete mess . The helmets and equipment were on the ground everywhere, tossed by customers who lost their minds in fear . Occasionally, they would happen upon human corpses blasted by the high-energy rounds .

The automatic sprinkles had activated above; it now rained both inside and outside the amusement center . The water mixed with the flesh and the blood to form a paste-like substance and the faint red bloody water flowed beneath their feet . Their group, who had been stuck in the room for quite a while, found the current situation hard to imagine .

At the very least, Luo Nan never expected this . He never expected to see this scene in Frost River Reality .

At this time, he had to repeat meaningless words endlessly . "Yes, don't worry . I'm fine . I'm really fine . I'm with the special forces . It is very safe here . Don't worry . . . "

He was talking to Mo Qiu, his older cousin whose legs had turned to jello from the shock and was waiting outside . Mo Qiu did not stop Luo Nan from leading Officer Xue into Frost River Reality . He had thought that Luo Nan was trying to get on this police officer's good side, to make it easier to plea for leniency for Mo Peng and the others' sake . After all, they had been taken into custody for being involved in a brawl . But how was he to know that a terrorist attack would happen in the amusement center just a dozen minutes later? There was news that the special forces were knocked out . Then came the explosive sounds of gunshots . Frost River Reality had exploded with chaos .

Mo Qiu and the others had been brought outside by the chaotic tide of people . He wanted to contact Luo Nan but his call went to voicemail . Mo Qiu was scared out of his mind for Luo Nan . He thought about calling again but in these special circumstances, repeated calls would bring Luo Nan troubles . It was an impossible situation and it tormented him until he practically went mad .

In the end, Luo Nan noticed the missed call on his wristband while he evacuated from the room . He called back and let Mo Qiu's stomach filled with fires of torment settle down . The relieving of stress would inevitably make one be a bit chatty . Luo Nan used a patient tone to lessen Mo Qiu's worries . From their conversation, he was able to partially grasp the situation outside .

After the so-called terrorist attack hit, the police set up a blockade line surrounding Frost River Reality and they evacuated the civilians nearby . Everyone believed that the police would rush in at godspeed and control the situation within Frost River Reality . But no one ever expected the police to hesitate outside, even after amassing several hundred personnel . They just dispatched a few combat robots and other unmanned machinery inside . These robots would rescue a few civilians from time to time or retrieve a few corpses . Aside from this, they really did not do anything besides draw resentment from the civilians .  

Luo Nan heard how the police was handling things . He nodded . "Well, this is the way they should do things . . . "

Currently, Frost River Reality was enveloped by the Order of Justice's Words of Krait power . All living beings within its range would likely be reduced to 'snake hives' . They would help the enemy . The police methods were clearly directed .

Mo Qiu did not understand . "Nanster?"

Luo Nan was unable to explain such things to Mo Qiu . He could only say . "Mo Peng and the others have already been brought to the station right? It's safe there . Third brother, you, Senior Sister Xiaolin, and Senior Sister Tian should leave quickly . You guys should go far far away . I heard some internal information . These terrorists probably have weapons of great destruction . . . "


"Don't talk nonsense . " Xue Weilun heard Luo Nan speak without thinking and put a stop to it at once .

Luo Nan waved a hand towards him in apology . He then continued talking with Mo Qiu . "I'm with the special forces . I'll probably evacuate from a different direction . Don't be concerned about me . Just be concerned about getting far away from here . . . Also, don't talk about this matter with our family for now . "

"You think you can hide it from them?" Mo Qiu laughed bitterly . "The media of the entire world have their cameras focused on you guys . "

" . . . "

Luo Nan ended the call with Mo Qiu . His brain could not help but imagine what Mo Qiu said about the rescue and corpse retrieval situation with the police . The indescribably bad feeling invaded his mind once more and forced him to sigh with worry .

Xue Weilun saw that Luo Nan had ended his call . He walked up to him and gave him a few reminders . "Luo Nan . You may be an expert but your family members are not . They may not be able to handle things . You can't guarantee that he won't spread information outside and be manipulated by others . . . "

Luo Nan just wanted to emphasize to Mo Qiu the importance of getting far away asap . He was referring to the Words of Krait when he talked about weapons of great destruction . It was not too far from the truth . However, Xue Weilun was an elder . Having heard these words from Xue Weilun, Luo Nan went along obediently .  

Xue Weilun only said such things because of his professional habits . He saw how Luo Nan had manifested the tetrahedron figures to protect their bodies . He saw Luo Nan's mystical power . He automatically associated the identity of this young man with that of an expert . He naturally had worries of his own .

Now he saw that Luo Nan was able to maintain a respectful attitude towards his elders . Luo Nan possessed impressive discipline . His original solid impression of Luo Nan being a drug abuser was diluted by quite a bit . At the same time, he now had somewhat of a good impression of Luo Nan .

Xue Weilun also did not want to label his son's friend with any stereotypes . The suspicions he had once harbored were resolved all at once . He reached out with his hand to swipe twice at the ghostly tetrahedron figure on his chest . The air rippled with subtle waves visible to the naked eye . The figure warped and morphed a bit but was soon restored to its original state .

"This figure . . . It can guard against those mental attacks, right? How long can it be maintained for? What is its name?"

"Format Pyramid, so my grandfather calls it . " Luo Nan laughed . "It's a bit of an exaggeration to say that it can guard against mental attacks . It can only prevent disturbances on the mental plane . For a direct attack, it can only act as a cushion to give one time to react . " 

As he spoke, he looked at the tetrahedron figures on the chest of the surrounding group of people . Each one of them was protected by the Format Pyramid buff and this made Luo Nan quite happy . His voice was bright and clear . "As for how long it lasts . . . Things will be fine as long as I'm standing here . " 

"Student Luo Nan . Are you sure that 'you' are fine?"

Before Luo Nan could finish speaking, someone else besides him spoke . She spoke with an emphasis on the second 'you' . There were some implications in her words . The speaker was none other than Bai Xinyan .

As their party made their way according to the evacuation route, this doctor of medicine had her head down and was looking at her wristband the entire time . It seemed that she was looking at some data . Her concentration made it so that she was practically blind to her surroundings . She had barely spoken at all today and it seemed that the words she did speak were quite undermining .

"Doctor Bai . . . " Luo Nan could only squeeze out these words before suddenly going speechless . Bai Xinyan had gotten close to him, reached out with her arm, and seized him by the shoulders in a half-pressing, half-hugging sort of way . She just walked forward with Luo Nan in this dubious position, attracting side-long glances from the people nearby .

Luo Nan understood clearly that Bai Xinyan did not have 'those' intentions but her arm held him tight and her body pressed tightly against his . He felt an indescribable softness against his back and his body subconsciously stiffened up .  

"Light tactile sense: normal . "


After that, not only did Bai Xinyan have his shoulders in her embrace, she used her other hand to lightly turn his neck and examine his carotid artery . The warmth of her fingers invaded Luo Nan's skin as his veins and nerves pulsed . This information was fed to Bai Xinyan through her finger .
