782 Defeated

    While Burzynski was still in a state of shock, Jiang Fei once again charged toward him.

    "Master, get away, quickly!" Right then, another mutant shouted. He then used his special power to start attacking Jiang Fei.

    Countless vines and leafy objects started entangling Jiang Fei's body. Even Jiang Fei who was Pinnacle Level 4 was suddenly immobilized.

    "Retreat! Everyone, retreat!" Burzynski used the opportunity to call out loudly. He knew that they could not continue fighting the battle. If they did, the entire army of mutants present would be annihilated.

    "Get lost!" Jiang Fei shouted angrily. At the same time, he activated his fire-based Origin Force.

    Flames started emerging from Jiang Fei's body which instantly burned the plants entangling him into ashes.

    "Master! Run away now! I'll keep him busy!" The mutant which controlled plants was still standing before Jiang Fei.

    "I will look after your family!" Burzynski looked gratefully at the mutant. He knew that his subordinate was sacrificing his own life to save him.

    As the plant-controlling mutant continued to attack Jiang Fei, vines and thorns spread all around Jiang Fei which made it difficult for him to move forward. Jiang Fei could only use his flames to continuously burn these plants. However, as soon as he burned some of them, more plants would grow.

    "Damn it!" Jiang Fei glared at the mutant. Although Jiang Fei's capabilities were much stronger than his opponent, the mutant's skill was still very annoying. Regardless of how fast he burned these plants, they would grow just as fast.

    However, from the pale expression on the mutant's face, Jiang Fei could tell that he would not last very long. Using so much of his energy so quickly would deplete the mutant's energy before long. The mutant was using his own life force to sustain its energy usage. Soon, he would probably die from exhausting his energy before Jiang Fei even attacked him.

    "Consider yourself lucky this time!" Jiang Fei glared at Burzynski who had managed to escape. There were too many of the mutants. Jiang Fei could not possibly kill all of them. Since the opponents had decided to retreat, Jiang Fei gave up on pursuing them.

    Very soon, the remaining mutants either escaped or were killed by the backup forces Jiang Fei had brought with him. The twenty-four female Bio-Humans were especially efficient in killing the mutants. They probably killed more than half of the mutants on the battlefield.

    "Are you guys alright?" Jiang Fei asked as the battle finally came to an end.

    "Yeah. Brother Jiang, thank you. If it weren't for you, we would have been in grave trouble..." Xiankong Island's leader Zhu Tianfei said after panting for a while. Although the battle had not lasted very long, he had expended a lot of energy to protect his young disciples.

    "Yeah, Brother Jiang, thank you so much!" The Valiant Viridian Sect's sect master Yan Wentao also expressed his gratitude.

    "You two are most welcome. We are all from the same Martial Art Alliance. It's our duty to help each other!" Jiang Fei laughed.

    "From the looks of things, you must have already reached Pinnacle Level 4, haven't you?" Yan Wentao asked.

    "Hehe, it's nothing..." Jiang Fei smiled as he nodded in response.

    Although news had gotten around that Jiang Fei defeated Ma Xuantong, the two men had not personally witnessed the incident. Therefore, they had not believed the presumed rumors as they thought someone had made it up. However, after witnessing Jiang Fei's capabilities today, Zhu Tianfei and Yan Wentao finally looked at Jiang Fei in a new light. They even felt a certain fear and respect for Jiang Fei.

    "We should not stay here for too long. What do you two plan to do?" Jiang Fei asked.

    "Ahh! Let's rest for a while and calibrate how many men we have lost. We should also sort out the corpses of our dead disciples."

    "Yeah! I agree." Yan Wentao nodded.

    "Alright. Please hurry up!" Jiang Fei did not disagree with their plan.

    Very soon, the remaining martial artists started moving around. The injured members were tended to first. As Jiang Fei was around, he supplied them with an unlimited number of Grand Restore Pills. The injured disciples were able to recover very quickly.

    After approximately half an hour, the dead martial artists' bodies were cremated. Their ashes were properly stored so that they could be brought back to China after the war.

    "Have they finished calculating the number of the dead?" Jiang Fei asked.

    "Yeah, the Xiankong Island Sect and the Valiant Viridian Sect have lost forty-three men in total. The Xiankong Island had lost seventeen Level 3 disciples and two Level 4 elders, while the Valiant Viridian Sect had lost twenty-three Level 3 disciples and one Level 4 elder," Yang Po answered.

    "What about our men?" Jiang Fei asked.

    "A few of the seniors and juniors were slightly injured. However, with your pills, most of them have already recovered," Yang Po said after looking around at the young martial artists. As the female Bio-Humans had intentionally protected these young martial artists, none of their lives were endangered in the battle. Only a few of them were slightly injured.

    "Alright, understood!" Jiang Fei closed his eyes as he started planning their next step.

    "Ahh..." Yang Po sighed as she looked at Jiang Fei who had closed his eyes. She felt pity for Liu Peng. The young fellow was actually quite capable. Unfortunately, he had decided to challenge Jiang Fei at an inappropriate time and therefore lost his life in vain.

    The group which Jiang Fei led was rightfully the safest group amongst the Martial Art Alliance. After all, he had the support of twenty-four Advanced metahumans. Such capabilities were even stronger than what the Soaring Cloud Sect had. The Soaring Cloud Sect may have more Level 4 martial artists, but they also had a much smaller number of Advance Level 4 experts.

    From the battle earlier, Yang Po could tell that Jiang Fei's female juniors were not entirely focused on protecting the young martial artists. However, if any of the young martial artists were in danger, they would still lend a helping hand. Unfortunately, that was not something even the bigger sects could do. If these young martial artists followed Jiang Fei's instructions obediently, there was a large chance that all of them would make it back to China safely.

    Jiang Fei did not know what Yang Po's thoughts were. Even if he did, he would not really care. He did not even mind that Liu Peng had been killed. He was now contemplating the losses in each sect and trying to estimate the chances of them accepting his condition of cooperating with the Chinese military.
