When Sai Lei saw the entire warehouse of mechanical weapons, her whole person fainted and fell over. When she finally awoke, her entire person was absorbed into the mechanical weapons, and no matter what Tang Tian talked to her about, it was as if she did not hear a thing, her mouth was constantly chanting, as though she was in a state of craziness.
“Never did I think that, although this woman is usually calm, with regards to mechanical techniques, she is really obsessed.” Tang Tian suddenly glanced at Bing with one eye: “I cannot tell that Uncle is so treacherous.”
“Ah, I learnt it from someone.” Bing thought of the time when he just entered the army, his heart flashed a hint of warmth, as it was how he was cheated into first entering the army so long ago!”
“Looks like the people around you in the past were not good people.” Tang Tian smirked.
“That’s completely right.” Bing gnashed his teeth: “One whole group of bastards who only knew how to eat and drink and have fun, who did not care about doing proper work. Treacherous and cunning snobs who could sell you out anytime, idiots who could spend the whole night barbecuing meat until they fry the entire army!”
Tang Tian listened until his eyes went wide, and with a face of sympathy: “Uncle, you could survive through such a vile and nasty living environment, it was not easy.”
“Humph!” Bing snorted; “Let’s leave her to her stuff, let us go.”
“There won’t be any problems leaving here alone, right?” Tang Tian was hesitating.
“Relax. The base is safe,” Seeing how Sai Lei was so engrossed into the mechanical weapons to the point of proning, Bing said: “These kind of psychotic lunatics, once they touch onto the things that they like, their eyes would be unable to see any other thing.”
“Oh.” Tang Tian agreed, soon after he became somewhat excited: “Uncle, the improvements she talked about, would they be successful?”
“I’m not too sure.” Bing shook his head straightforwardly: “These kinds of things, who can assure success? But, she does have talent, and is very dedicated, and we too need a mechanical expert, it is worth a try.”
“Then we shall see how in the next few days.” Tang Tian said: “Let us go back and test out what results the Training Spirit Device will have.”
Tang Tian naturally had a face of satisfaction, other than the Training Spirit Device, he brought along five sets of mechanical weapons.
You all have powerful Spirit Generals, I have my mechanical weapons!
You all have powerful Star Treasures, I have my mechanical weapons!
Tang Tian wished he could stop anybody, and immediately fight a bout happily.
Bing did not stop him, in his eyes, Tang Tian now had the attitude of a model recruit. To deal with this type of recruit, he had plenty of experience, and at this point of time to pressure and berate, would not only not let the recruit understand, but it would give rise to a resistive and rebellious mental state for the recruit. The best method was to just let Tang Tian hit a wall during a real battle.
Young man, reality is always so cruel….
Bing already started preparing in his mind, to find a suitable outstanding opponent for Tang Tian. It was a pity that he was the only one left from the Army, if not, all the psychos in the army, he could pull them out to fight, and one by one they could teach Tang Tian a few lessons of their own.
Yet Bing was even more of a stranger to the current world.
Yet the shrewd and ruthless Bing, did not bat his eyelids.
The once again lively base, with so many strong functions, led Tang Tian to be surprised. Under Tang Tian’s control, the base completely went underground, and the entrance disappeared. To prevent people from digging the entrance out, the base that was underground, was moved another five hundred metres. Overnight, the ruins suddenly disappeared, leaving many people astonished, but very quickly no one bothered about it. Although there were things that could be dug out from the ruins, there were not many precious things, Three Spirits City was a relatively desolated place in the Spirit Region, there were very few experts, and was quickly forgotten by many people.
Returning to the Three Spirit City, the two of them were preparing to return to the recruit training barracks. Although it was part of the Spirit Region, time flow was relatively the same to the outside. So the time in the recruit training barracks was extremely precious, especially to Tang Tian who felt that he had insufficient time, and could not waste anymore of it.
Suddenly, Tang Tian’s eyes lit up, glancing at a figure, his footsteps suddenly stopped.
Noticing Tang Tian’s change in expression, Bing followed his gaze and look, and laughed.
Kong You Lin!
It was actually Kong You Lin!
Tang Tian laughed, to actually travel to places without seeking a destination, but only to have enemies on the same narrow road. Tang Tian actually had a good impression of Kong You Lin, but never did he expect that, Kong You Lin actually sent him to the big tomb outer barracks. Kong You Lin was snobbish and what not in reality, but Tang Tian did not care at all, what connection is there with that person’s character to himself? Even if there were any connections, it was so subtle, but he actually threw me to this place!
Whatever grudges or gratitudes, it would be resolved with his fists.
“We will follow.” Tang Tian said in a low voice. With that, he bent his body, and followed Kong You Lin from afar.
Bing followed Tang Tian without saying a word, his mind was thinking, Kong You Lin was considered a good opponent. His power, was definitely not bad, and could let Tang Tian hit a wall. He was walking further and further on the road of mistakes, why not let Tang Tian tumble hard right now.
With that thought, Bing did not obstruct him, but furthermore guided him by the side.
“Your line of sight should not be fixed at the opponent, if not it would be easy to attract other people’s attention. The key to shadowing a person is to master the use of looking from the corners of your eyes, your line of sight should not fall on the enemy, but, should not be too far away either.”
Tang Tian learnt quickly, he followed from afar, Kong You Lin did not expect that in Three Spirits City, there would be people following him.
In the blink of an eye, Kong You Lin entered a house with a courtyard.
Tang Tian circled the outer walls one time around, The Lin residence did not think that there would be anyone daring enough to rush in, as there was actually not a single guard outside seen. And the surrounding tall and big trees, actually were not cleared away.
There was no high ground sentries, no patrol, no hidden sentries, no mechanisms…. Completely not one defence laid out….
Bing’s eyes moved up and down for a while, if he landed in their hands, Tang Tian would definitely be cast into a dark prison where he would starve to death.
Ok, be calm, calm….I have been an iron blood instructor for so many years…I do not have occupational disease….
“Where is a good place to enter from?” Tang Tian turned his head and asked Bing quietly.
What place….is there any difference….
Bing restrained his own mind from becoming violent, and let himself remain calm: “From here is fine.”
Tang Tian heard, and without saying another word, he climbed onto a tree like a leopard. The leaves on this particular tree were super dense. Tang Tian camouflaged himself within the leaves. It was hard to identify him. Even Tang Tian felt that the defence in the Lin Family were extremely weak. Who did not cut away the trees around the family fence? Were they trying to give people a chance to act on it?
Within the fence, layers of red tiles flew up in piles and settled down on high buildings, taking over hundred of hectares. Tang Tian never thought that within the fence, there could be so many buildings as though it were a small town.
Tang Tian was stunned. What kind of history did this Lin Family have?
Just as Tang Tian was about to jump into from the tree, Bing shouted quickly to stop him: “Careful, this is a trap!”
“Trap?” Tang Tian quivered.
Bing whispered: “Hmpf, a plan like this is so dumb. I hate scheming plans the most. All defence set ups should be just and honourable so the enemy would find it hard to breakthrough. Counting with your footsteps, take nineteen steps to the left and enter from there.”
Tang Tian did not delay. He jumped hurriedly according to Bing’s instructions and flipped over once he found the place with green bricks.
“Hey, Uncle, how did you see through it?” Tang Tian asked curiously.
“There are some movements from the spirits there. Although it is weak, if you analyse it carefully, you can still sense it.” Bing explained: “I’m actually not that good at setting up traps. Usually, the mechanics would be good at this. But, like the saying goes, all changes are superficial and there are no departures from the origin. There are just a few types of traps. The main methods are usually with the spirit nuclei and the spirit cards.”
Tang Tian blushed with shame: “I didn’t sense anything.”
“You’re a rookie.” Bing was not kind.
Tang Tian did not refute either. He knew that he was a rookie.
As he flipped over the fence, Tang Tian landed on the ground stealthily without a sound. He took a step forward and hid his body in the dark. Suddenly, he ran forward with the leg against the wall.
Tang Tian felt a surge of adrenaline.
Compared to all his experiences, this mission was far beyond what he imagined it to be.
Bing could always inform him aptly about how he should move. The standard of this rascal was extremely high. Under the guidance of Bing, Tang Tian also noted the existence of the guards and whistles in the dark.
Tang Tian was not nervous. On the contrary, the dangers lurking around him made him all the more focused.
His actions and standards were pushed to his limits.
Bing was rich in experience and was sharp. Very quickly, Tang Tian saw Kong You Lin once again. Garnering all his energy as he prepared to move towards him, Bing suddenly said: “Don’t you plan to use Saber-Toothed Tiger?”
“It’s so big, won’t people find out?” Tang Tian was confused.
Bing scoffed: “Don’t just use your eyes and come to a conclusion. It’s even easier to find you now. Your light body technique is just so bad, and with each step, you make some noise. While Saber-Toothed Tiger is huge, it can strengthen your light body techniques. And so, you won’t be found out easily. On top of that, the Saber-Toothed Tiger has undergone professional fixing. It is best at sudden attacks. And with sudden attacks, it means that it can suddenly appear around your enemies.”
Tang Tian was overjoyed as he heard what Bing said. Then, he quickly flew to a dead corner to retrieve his Saber-Toothed Tiger.
The mechanical armour, the Saber-Toothed Tiger, was easy to wear. Tang Tian who had the experience of it, wore it quickly and neatly.
Bing’s poker face twitched. He had not completed his words. The Saber-Toothed Tiger was most definitely used to launch several sudden attacks, but it rarely move around alone. Also, those who could control it alone and launch sudden attacks were usually the experts.
Young lad Tang, you have to fall on your head to learn that the road you so stubbornly followed, was a grave mistake.
Tang Tian did not know the intentions of Bing. He wore the Saber-Toothed Tiger. As his body came into contact with the icy bronze material, he felt something deep in his heart overflowing, it was as if it was blazing hot lava flowing past his heart.
This feeling… was so good!
Tang Tian was slightly agitated. It was amazing to control such a huge object for battle.
The murderous looking Saber-Toothed Tiger moved its arms and forehead before stopping all of a sudden. The solemn looking tiger was filled with with his intention to kill.
Just like the ancient times, when it awakens, it would enter the darkness clandestinely and into the hunting food region.
