After the black figure avoided the attack, he even had the strength to fight back. Its right foot kicked unexpectedly at an incredible angle that was impossible for normal joints, and it landed on Wendi’s chest.
Its foot also seemed to be equipped with something like iron thorns. With that kick, a large pool of ochre color immediately appeared on Wendi’s clothes. He staggered back in pain.
Seeing that the black figure was about to break through the blockade and escape into the night, the [Drone] swopped down from mid-air, then a dazzling light ripped through the darkness and exploded in front of him!
It was the new skill that Fang Linyan had drawn: flash bomb!
The shadow immediately let out a shrill sound, which sounded like a mix of a dog and donkey’s howling — it just didn’t seem like the human’s sound. When it reached the human ear, it felt like being roughly scratched by a coarse file. It seemed that strong light caused great damage to it.
Immediately afterward, a gunshot resounded in the night sky,
Then, half a meter in the air to the right of the shadow, a patch of pale green mucus sprayed out strangely.
Undoubtedly, Fang Linyan was the one who fired the shot, then he sent a private message to Lipper,
“There is a strange force field on the surface of this monster’s body which refracts light and deceives our sight like a fish in the bottom of the water, so your attacks keep missing. So remember to adjust your aim by half a meter to the right of its body.”
After being shot, this monster was desperately trying to run away, but Lipper also showed his specialties vividly during this pursuit battle. It wasn’t clear whether it was because of his talent or equipment, but he could glide more than 10 meters in the air after a jump. It seemed like gravity was non-existent to him.
Presumably, the nickname of the Vulture also came from this.
With Fang Linyan’s prompt, Lipper dived down like a hawk after chasing 200 meters. In the eyes of the rest, he seemed to be attacking the empty space beside the monster like he was possessed, but the strange black figure suddenly fell down and let out a shrill.
Upon this fall, the cloak on this strange black figure also fell off, revealing the terrifying body underneath…
It really wasn’t a human.
In some terms, it looked like a hybrid of a mantis, locus, and cockroach. It had a light black shell on its body.
The area of the shell that Lipper attacked had an obvious dent in it, and there were dense cracks all around the dent. Green juice was seeping around the cracks.
It had a protruding mouthpart equipped with densely shredding teeth. If it took a bite, it could chunk down a large piece of meat.
Its legs looked like the thighs of a locust, with significantly swollen muscles and full of explosive power.
But the most striking feature of this creature was a knife-shaped deformed foot like a praying mantic, which appeared extremely dangerous.
But in fact, this was the reality. Once Lipper succeeded in attacking it, he immediately flew far away. On the other hand, Wendi seemed to think that this was a good opportunity for kill steal.
But instead, the monster turned over suddenly and let out a series of hoarse roars from its mouthpiece. It was difficult for the naked eye to even see its movements. Only a faint ripple could be felt from the darkness.
Immediately, Wendi was knocked back, crashing into a shack next to him. Nobody knew whether he was alive or dead.
But at this time, gunshots sounded again. Fang Linyan incredibly and accurately hit the monster’s head. Hunting monsters in the Westminster Abbey had given Fang Linyan the experience of this type of shooting skill.
It wasn’t a good feeling to be shot in the head by the Lee Enfield Rifle. Under the stimulation of the pain, the monster faced Fang Linyan’s direction and let out another shrill roar. But seeing what happened to Wendi, Fang Linyan quickly hid behind a bunker and the sonic attack only riled up a lot of dust.
During this distraction, Lipper already swept down from behind and threw down a flame bomb.
The raging flame immediately surrounded the monster. By the time the monster put out the fire with its strange cry, it realized that it was already by Seals who came just in time.
But at this moment, a bizarre thing happened, that was, the monster committed suicide!
According to common sense, in a desperate situation, the monster would either surrender or even continue fighting even when it was trapped, at least taking a victim with it before dying.
But instead, its response was to raise its leg blades and viciously stab its internal organs in its abdomen, messing up its insides into a mush, then collapsing to the ground!
Fang Linyan, who witnessed this scene, stared at the monster thoughtfully.
Soon, Ai Lu rushed over and grabbed the monster’s corpse, then took it into the house where the explosion had occurred earlier.
It was at this moment that they saw another corpse in a black robe in the room. Fang Linyan glanced at the corpse and immediately raised his brows.
He didn’t realize that Ai Lu, who was standing next to him, noticed his subtle movements. Ai Lu asked,
“What’s wrong? Wrench, did you know this guy?”
Fang Linyan said lightly,
“Yes, it’s just a little unexpected.”
Ai Lu probed more,
“Then I wonder if it’s convenient for you to disclose it?”
Fang Linyan replied,
“I’ve dealt with him several times before, and this man is the owner of the Borgin and Burkes magic shop at Knockturn. People called him Old Vico.”
Ai Lu responded with an “oh“,
“I see, turns out that Borgin and Burkes magic shop sold some prohibited casting materials. It’s not difficult to understand how the owner is affiliated with Death Eaters.”
At this time, after the team leader of Seal negotiated with the rest of the team, he stood in front of them and clapped his hand to attract everyone’s attention. He said loudly,
“I announce that we have discovered the truth about Jack the Ripper!”
“The situation is clear now. Jack the Ripper is not human at all, but a mutated monster created by the dark wizards in the Death Eater organization.”
“Their purpose was intuitive. They are using this monster to hunt the women in London. Their purpose is to use female organs to perform prohibited dark alchemy or produce black magic’s casting materials.”
“The reason they do it this way was that if they use black magic to kill people, the traces left behind are too obvious. It could cause public outrage, and the Ministry of magic would pay closer attention.”
“By using the identity of Jack the Ripper, it will just be a crime in the muggle world. The Ministry won’t pay any heed to these matters. Because to them, muggles are the inferior class.”
When Seal finished saying these words, everyone present received the prompt,
“Contestant XXXX/Contractor XXXX, congratulations on discovering the truth about Jack the Ripper.”
“You used all kinds of clues to successfully break through the mystery, and finally found the brutal dark wizards and caught the killer who killed those innocent women.”
“You will be rewarded with Tier II reward. Please choose one of the following reward options as a reward for your efforts.”
Seeing this, all the people cheered at the same time. Ai Lu also whistled. Then, the following options popped up on each person’s retinas.
A: Title: Splitting Cocoon. After equipping this title, you can observe the enemy’s weakness. Whenever you successfully hit the enemy, there is a 33% chance of attacking the weak point, causing extra damage to the enemy. The extra damage value is equal to your highest basic attribute.
However, since you need time to gather intelligence and find the enemy’s weaknesses, the weak point strike will only trigger after 15 seconds of engagement with the enemy.
B: Increase your crit rate by 2%
C: Increase your evasion by 3%
D: Increases your hit rate by 3%
F: Tell Scotland Yard your findings, and you will be awarded the Scotland Yard Trident Honorary Member badge. After wearing this badge, your attacks will mark the enemy with a “Wanted Order”, increasing the enemy’s chance of being crit by 1%. (The special effect can be stacked with different ID)
G: Tell the Ministry of Magic your findings, and you will get the apprentice Auror badge. After wearing this badge, your attacks will have a chance to cause the negative effect of “Azkaban’s Gaze” to the enemy, reducing their defense by 3 points (The special effect can be stacked with different ID)
(The effect of stacking with different ID meant that if Fang Linyan attacked the enemy and applied the effect of Azkaban’s Gaze, no matter how much he attacked, the defense -3 couldn’t be stacked. But if he attacked the enemy together with Lipper the Vulture and both of them triggered Azkaban’s Gaze, then the enemy’s defense would be reduced by 6 points. If 3 people triggered the effect, then the defense would be reduced by 9 points.)
H: Make no choice.
Looking at these prompts, the Seals began to talk amongst themselves without excluding Fang Linyan and Lipper. In the end, most of them chose options F or G. It was obvious that due to their excellent teamwork, they were able to make their decision quickly.
Then Seal said simply,
“Okay, since everyone has received the reward, you’re dismissed. By the way, Vulture and Wrench stay back for a while.”
The pale-faced Wendi and the other contractor looked at each other, sighed slightly, and turned to leave. They knew that Seal was going to keep his promise and refund the previous fee they had paid.
But they didn’t have much to say now. To be honest, if Vulture and Wrench hadn’t
helped them, they might not be able to stop this monster.
Seal received 3 magic cores from Lipper the Vulture at that time, so after discounting 7,000 common points were refunded to him. Lipper looked a little embarrassed, but he could only suck it up and avoid eye contact with Fang Linyan.
