Fang Linyan frowned and said:
“Damn it, the car hasn’t been repaired yet.”
Lieutenant Lucan struggled and said anxiously,
“This backpack is a high-tech product that I exchanged before. It is 2 grades higher than the pair of jet shoes Logan exchanged. It can’t be mass-produced at all. It’s called a jetpack. Take it on your back and take me away!!!”
Fang Linyan put on the jetpack according to what Lieutenant Lucan said, then he pressed the button. The 2 pipes at the bottom of the backpack immediately ejected a powerful airflow, lifting him to half a meter from the ground. It could allow him to fly faster just above the ground! However, after Fang Linyan carried Lieutenant Lucan, their weight made it hard to fly. It could still reduce stamina consumption and boost their speed greatly.
When Fang Linyan was running at full strength, with the assistance of a jetpack, it was like running under a low-gravity environment like the surface of the moon. Every step was a distance of 2 to 3 meters. Not only that, a jump could even leap for 5 meters. What’s more, because they were moving straight most of the time, their speed was even faster than driving a car.
However, after running several tens of meters, Fang Linyan found it awkward to princess hug Lieutenant Lucan while running. First, his hands would be sore in this posture for a long time. Second, it was too unsightly for them to hug ‘romantically’ like this.
Therefore, Fang Linyan decisively put Lieutenant Lucan down, moved the jetpack on his chest as long as the 2 jet tubes were still hanging at his feet, then he carried Lieutenant Lucan and moved forward again.
After the 2 escaped for about 2 kilometers, they found that under the bright moonlight, the desert behind was already dusty. Several mechanical creatures were chasing them; one of which was the common Reaper-M.
The other one was obviously larger; its model should be Reaper-M-Modified. After this thing was modified, its long-range attack abilities were replaced by powerful slave-catching abilities. It had its own sonic oscillator, stun bombs, electric whip, large-scale infrared scanner, etc. It was even equipped with complete medical equipment in order to avoid the death of the captives.
It was worth mentioning that behind this Reaper-M-modified, there was also a huge black car with an eerie design. The car lights were emitting ghastly red light, and the car carriage was modified into several steel cages.
This was a slave car that was specially used to carry captured human beings. Fang Linyan found everyone in the team… or their corpses in the cage. In other words, with the exception of Fang Linyan and Lieutenant Lucan, the entire team had been wiped out.
Upon seeing this scene, Fang Linyan began to give full play to his advantages and chose to escape to places with complex terrain as much as possible. Although most areas here were wastelands that could be passed by vehicles, there were also many rugged terrains that were not convenient for vehicles. Fang Linyan’s destination was a dry river in front.
Reaper-M behind him kept chasing and started shooting. The regular sound of bullets made them feel a chill on their spine. There was even a bullet brushed past Fang Linyan’s ear; only about 10 cm. He broke into cold sweat immediately.
Suddenly, Lieutenant Lucan trembled and screamed,
“Ah! I was shot…”
Fang Linyan didn’t know what to talk for a while. Comforting him seemed to be gloating, but ignoring him seemed even more cold-blooded.
After just a few seconds, Lieutenant Lucan trembled again familiarly, begging,
“…Can you hurry up, I got another shot in my ass.”
Fang Linyan suddenly thought at this time that if he hadn’t carried him on his back, then he would be the one who got shot. In this way, Lieutenant Lucan was blocking the bullets for him, so he hurriedly comforted,
“It’s fine. We can get rid of them in front.”
After running for more than a hundred meters, the dry river was close at hand. The riverbank was more than 4 meters high.
Fang Linyan relied on the abilities of the jetpack to run quickly and jumped down the river, then he shuttled between the big rocks at the bottom of the riverbed. Finally, in the last jump, the built-in engine of the jetpack was also at full power output. It roared hysterically as it pushed Fang Linyan and Lieutenant Lucan to a height of about 5 meters.
Then Fang Linyan used one hand to support Lieutenant Lucan’s buttocks, and the other hand grabbed the riverbank. With the help of the jetpack, he climbed up easily, taking Lieutenant Lucan with him to hide behind a rock.
At this time, although the 2 Reapers had come to the opposite bank and the distance between them was less than 50 meters, the 2 Reapers relied on wheels to travel, so they couldn’t travel in the river and climb up a 5 meters tall cliff. They could only watch.
The 2 mechanical creatures stayed on the opposite shore for dozens of seconds, and the crimson red electronic eyes on their bodies were constantly flashing. They should be assessing the possibility of driving down the dry river to catch people. Finally, they gave up, turned around and drove away. Fang Linyan was relieved to see them go away, feeling a chill on his back drenched in a cold sweat.
Because when he threw out Lieutenant Lucan, he heard the engine roar of the jetpack a bit abnormal. When he climbed the riverbank, he could smell a pungent burnt plastic smell from the backpack. Fang Linyan pressed the switch several times. He found that the sound of the engine became weaker and weaker, and the wind of the jet pipes became weaker and weaker.
So if these 2 damn Reapers choose to continue chasing, then Fang Linyan was probably really going to face a very tricky situation.
Although Reaper chose to leave, Fang Linyan also felt that it wasn’t good to stay here any longer. What if these 2 Reapers were just detouring instead of getting back? He immediately came to Lieutenant Lucan, put a hand behind his shoulder and said,
“Captain, hold on, it’s still dangerous here, let’s get there first… Eh?“
At this time Fang Linyan realized that Lieutenant Lucan was completely lying weakly on the ground, only his lips were moving slightly.
Fang Linyan was stunned. He took out the liquor from his private space and gave him a sip, then Lieutenant Lucan’s face looked slightly red as if he got a shot of stimulant. He said with a weak voice,
“Wrench, Wrench, I… I don’t think I can make it. Blood Orchid and Blood Orchid fruits are yours, both; they are all yours! After returning to the city… bring my dog tag to… Lieutenant Colonel Mavin. Tell him that he doesn’t have to repay the wine he owed. He… can be trusted.”
TL: He got all the prizes in the end! What can he get from this Lieutenant Colonel Mavin then?
