785 Sudden Disappearance

    "Wait here in the cave. Make it bigger if you can. I am going to find Sect Master Bai and the others." Jiang Fei said to the martial artists around him.

    "Brother Jiang, isn't it dangerous for you to go alone?" Zhu Tianfei asked worriedly.

    "It's alright. There will be a lower possibility of being discovered with a smaller number of people." Jiang Fei shook his head. With 0541's support, he would not be discovered by the mutants.

    "Alright then. Brother Jiang, stay safe." Zhu Tianfei cupped his fists at Jiang Fei.

    "Take care of yourselves," Jiang Fei said to the female Bio-Humans. As he did not want too many people accompanying him, he decided to only bring Ariel along.

    "Alright, don't worry, senior!" The ladies nodded in unison. They had been asked by Jiang Fei to address him as their senior in front of outsiders.

    "Ariel, let's go!" Jiang Fei said after making sure that everything was in order. He then left the cave with Ariel.

    "0541, cover us!" Jiang Fei immediately activated the invisibility effect after exiting the cave.

    After leaving the cave, Jiang Fei and Ariel hurried over to the designated location. Bai Wanli and the others were also running toward the same location. Although the martial artists did not have an invisibility effect like Jiang Fei, they ran at full speed which made it difficult for the major rice-exporting country's fleet to target them with the guided missiles.

    The major rice-exporting country had decided not to use nuclear bombs because they did not want to break the unspoken rule of not using them. Since China also had nuclear bombs, they would surely use the same weapons if the major rice-exporting country did. The mutants, like the martial artists, were incapable of defending themselves against nuclear attacks.

    While the Chinese military could turn a blind eye to the fight between the mutants and the martial artists, the mutants could not sit by idly as they had fully merged with the major rice-exporting country's military. If a nuclear war broke out, their mutant allies would all be affected.

    Due to such considerations, the major rice-exporting country decided to only use guided missiles to make the martial artists exhausted from running around. However, they kept to the unspoken rules of not engaging Level 5 experts and nuclear bombs.

    Although the major rice-exporting country's fleet could not accurately target Bai Wanli and the other martial artists, they still tried to make life difficult for the martial artists. While the major rice-exporting country's fleet did not know where the martial artists were headed to, they still decided to harass them with guided missiles.

    As such, the martial artists had to constantly change their directions to avoid being hit by the guided missiles which rained upon them.

    Although there were no significant losses, the martial artists were clearly starting to feel exhausted from using a lot of their energy. This was precisely what the major rice-exporting country wanted to achieve. They were not counting on the guided missiles to exterminate the martial artists. If that could be done, the Chinese military would have done it a long time ago.

    The major rice-exporting country had a very simple objective which was to continuously tire the martial artists by making them run. Just as they did to the Japanese Bio-Humans previously, the mutants would show up and annihilate the martial artists once they became exhausted from running.

    On one hand, the martial artists were being forced to run around and expend their energy. On the other hand, the mutants were resting and waiting for the right moment to attack. This was how the mutants were able to easily defeat the Japanese Bio-Humans in the past. Today, they wanted to use the same tactic on the martial artists.

    While the journey for Bai Wanli and the others was very difficult, Jiang Fei had experienced the opposite. Firstly, with Ariel's help, Jiang Fei teleported a short distance away from where he started his journey. He then stayed on the track which would lead him to Bai Wanli and the others. However, unfortunately, Bai Wanli and the others had already deviated from the designated path due to the guided-missile attacks. Therefore, Jiang Fei was not able to find them even after a few hours.

    "We can't waste anymore time! 0541, increase the range of scan!" Jiang Fei had no choice but to expend more energy. As he did not know that the major rice-exporting country would hold back from using nuclear bombs, he was still concerned about the possibility of a nuclear attack.

    "Yes, captain!" 0541 answered as it immediately broadened the Bio-Radar's area of scanning.

    "I have located the martial artists!" Very soon, 0541 was able to pinpoint Bai Wanli and the other's location.

    "Alright! Let's go!" Jiang Fei nodded as he started charging toward where Bai Wanli and the others were located with Ariel close behind him.

    After two hours, Jiang Fei finally found Bai Wanli and the other martial artists.

    "Whew... Brother Jiang, we have finally found you..." Bai Wanli said as he panted. He was close to throwing up from all the running.

    "As long as nobody got hurt!" Jiang Fei nodded after seeing the martial artists. Although the Level 3 disciples were visibly exhausted, none of them had been injured by guided missiles.

    "0541, increase the coverage of the invisibility effect!" Jiang Fei ordered. 0541 promptly made sure all the martial artists were covered by the invisibility effect.

    "Let's leave this place immediately!" Jiang Fei knew that the major rice-exporting country would start to bombard the area randomly once they discovered the martial artists had disappeared into thin air. Therefore, he immediately asked everyone to start moving.

    "Alright! Let's go!" Bai Wanli and the rest knew they could not stay in the same spot after an entire afternoon of being assaulted with guided missiles.

    "What happened? How did they disappear?"

    "I'm not sure. The satellites cannot detect their traces either!"

    "Send more drone scouts! We must find out where the martial artists have gone! They could not have disappeared into thin air!"

    "Yes, commander!"

    Just as Jiang Fei increased the coverage of his invisibility effect to keep the martial artists hidden, the major rice-exporting country's fleet realized that something was amiss.

    "They must be hidden around here somewhere. I suggest we open fire right away. That would force them to come out!" One of the strategists said.

    "Alright! Krude and Nasby, immediately bombard the target area!" Robert commanded.

    Soon, the two Destroyer vessels activated their weapon system to fire a few guided missiles. After a few minutes, the place where Jiang Fei had gathered with Bai Wanli and the others were promptly bombarded with guided missiles. The flat land looked like the moon's surface with craters all over it.

    "Let's go. We don't need to walk too fast. You may recover on the way!" Jiang Fei and the others were already several miles away. They could all hear the massive explosions from far away. While Jiang Fei was not disturbed by the sounds, the other martial artists were secretly shaking in fear.
