Chapter 15

"Damn it, then don't blame us!" Eli cursed as he raised his club to strike Syd.

Unfortunately, just as he raised his hand and before he could strike, Syd was already lifting his right hand.

"Divine Finger!"

[Divine Finger Experience +1]

Along with the alert from Divine Finger, Syd's right hand was already pressed against Eli's chest.

Crack, crack—the sound of shattering glass mixed with the crunch of breaking ribs.

With a thud, Eli was sent flying four or five meters away, rolling on the ground and wailing in agony.

"Mut... mutant..."

The remaining two were utterly shocked.

This youth was a mutant? They looked at Syd with eyes full of fear.

They could never have imagined that just stepping out to make a quick buck would turn into such a dire situation! Regret began to set in.

They thought they could easily bully this young man for some money? He was a demon, a devil!

Seeing the dreadful state of Eli from just one touch, they lost all desire to fight and turned to run.

Unfortunately, before they could get far, the chilling voice of the devilish youth rang out.

"Stop, hand over all the money you have, or else..."

Saying this, Syd glanced at the black man still lying on the ground wailing, and uttered a familiar line, "You don't want to end up like him, do you?"

"Here, here, take it!" Jamie and the other man were terrified, hurriedly pulling out all the money they had.

Even more, they crouched next to Eli, helping him fish out some cash from his pockets.

Having obtained the money and initially intending to let them go, Syd reconsidered due to his dwindling energy and let them take the injured man and leave.

Looking at the couple hundred dollars in his hand, he breathed a slight sigh of relief.

"Good thing I had some energy left, otherwise..."

Syd shook his head.

If those last two hadn't been so scared and dared to confront him, he might have really been in trouble! Thinking about this made Syd yearn even more for strength.

"I'm still too weak, I have too little energy inside..."

After sighing, Syd, holding the dollars in his hand, planned to find some food and clothing.

While he was struggling to survive and waiting for daylight, George was already driving towards Laboratory No. 23 to report the situation and question some matters.

A few minutes later, he arrived at the laboratory and quickly went to the office of the base leader, Alessandro.

"What did you say, that Experiment No. 37 has escaped again?"

"All of you, more than ten people, and you couldn't catch a mutant?"

"Are you all useless?!"

Alessandro sat in his chair, hands clasped under his chin, staring sharply at Kenny and George.

Captain George, hearing this, hurriedly defended, "It's not our fault!"

He glanced angrily at Kenny standing beside him, "Captain Kenny gave us incorrect information, which led to..."

"What?" Kenny, a burly man like a tower, frowned, "What incorrect information?"

George furrowed his brow and slowly explained what had happened.

"What?" Captain Kenny's eyes widened in astonishment, "That kid was only supposed to be able to teleport a meter or two, and you're saying he can teleport nearly ten meters? And that the range and power of those black energy orbs also didn't match the reports?"

"That's impossible!"

He was incredulous.

"But it is the truth!" George said angrily, "Captain Kenny, it's all because of you..."

"I..."

"Enough, stop arguing!" Alessandro was also surprised and halted their bickering.

Seeing them look his way, his face showed a hint of interest, "It seems that No. 37 has his own schemes, clever enough to hide."

Hide? Kenny and George exchanged a look of astonishment.

"Just like that kid hid two abilities before, I think it's the same this time," Alessandro said with a slight smile, explaining thoughtfully, "Either that kid has made significant progress in developing his abilities recently, or he intentionally hid his strength earlier."

"I'm leaning towards him having hidden his strength before. After all, no one can improve so much suddenly; only hiding his strength explains it."

He couldn't help but admire the young mutant's cunning.

"So that's how it is."

Kenny and George had a moment of realization, finding this explanation plausible.

At that moment, George frowned, "Then, the capture of No. 37 might be difficult moving forward, I really don't know if he still has hidden capabilities."

"Don't worry." Alessandro smiled slightly, his calm demeanor reassuring, "Being able to hide two abilities and some of his strength likely pushed him to his limit. The next operations should not face any surprises."

"Send more people this time, add some of the newly developed sentinel robots, and carefully plan it out. We will definitely capture No. 37!"

He turned to Captain Kenny, instructing, "This time, you will go with George."

Captain Kenny nodded, his face eager, clearly already keen to deal with No. 37.

Hearing this, George couldn't help but smile inwardly.

He smirked to himself.

Now that they had information on that kid, there was no way he could escape this time! Especially with the help of the sentinel robots, he couldn't see how that kid could possibly get away! Thinking of his fallen teammates, his eyes were filled with hatred.

As they planned their operation and had people collect more information about No. 37, there was a stir online.

As Denim uploaded the video to the internet, many people noticed this sensational video and began commenting after watching it.

"Damn, are those officers useless, how could they lose?"

"This mutant is so powerful, not only can he teleport, but he can also launch those terrifying black things, totally unpredictable!"

Watching the video of the youth constantly teleporting and then casually firing black energy, nearly killing a person effortlessly, many viewers felt fear.

Still, most agreed that, despite the young mutant's prowess, he would eventually be apprehended by the authorities.

"Video owner, we need a follow-up, I want to see the end of that youth!"

"Exactly, we want to see the footage of that youth getting caught, I can't sleep well without seeing him captured!"

"Let's guess, when will that young mutant get caught?"

As the public debated, anticipating the young mutant's imminent capture, some mutants also saw the video, their eyes flashing with surprise.
