One Punch Man King Engine - Chapter 40
Kill! Kill! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar!
The Monster was furious. His eyes were completely red. His iris, sclera, and the rest were all turned blood red, and his entire body was covered in blood. Although Wang Feng’s small energy bomb had not destroyed the Monster, it had also caused him serious injuries.
Wang Feng stared at the crazed Monster, expressionless. He took a step with his left foot, his palms opened forward. He aimed his hands on the Monster’s waist, and a ball of light gradually formed.
This… this is the Kamehameha!?
“Huff… huff…” Sonic, who had taken the opportunity to hide, watched King’s every move and repeatedly adjusted his breathing, prepared to strike at any moment.
“Everyone, get ready and prepare your ice needles. Keep calm and focus on King. Don’t worry; as long as we get a shot, King will definitely be torn into pieces by Monster without us making a move. No matter how you look at it, we are the ones who would win. I believe… we will be the last to laugh.” Kill Leader used words to dispel the tension in the hearts of the killers to ensure that the operation was foolproof.
The ice needles in the modified guns of the killers were special ice needles laced with a super-strong anesthetic. When the ice needle entered a human body, it would quickly melt into the target’s blood, allowing the anesthetic to instantly take effect. Within ten seconds, the person would be completely paralyzed. It was a gift that Kill Leader had specially prepared for King.
He studied the first two failures when he was planning this assassination operation. It was clear that bullets would not kill King. He was also worried that a cannon would make too much noise, allowing King to detect it in advance and avoid it. So he specially prepared these special ice needles.
The Monster’s bloody eyes stared at Wang Feng, and two streams of white mist sprayed out from his nostrils. His entire body shook, and all the barbs on his body broke free, shooting towards Wang Feng like a shower of arrows. It was a mind-numbing sight.
The corners of Wang Feng’s mouth curled up slightly, and he shouted, “Kame… no wait, Explosive Energy Bomb!” His palm pushed the blue light energy bomb in his palm onto Monster’s body!
The energy bomb flew out and destroyed Monster’s spikes along the way!
“An opportunity! Attack!”
The moment Wang Feng attacked Monster, the eyes of Sonic and Kill Leader flashed at the same time.
“King, I am very sorry. I will take your life.” Sonic’s figure flashed and instantly appeared in the sky behind Wang Feng. He held the katana behind his back and revealed a strange smile.
Hmm? It seems that someone is talking about me behind my back!
With Vaccine Man Card’s power, Wang Feng’s hearing increased significantly, allowing him to hear the sound of Sonic moving behind him.
He seems familiar; he’s… Speed-O’-Sound Sonic??
Wang Feng was surprised. Why would Sonic, who was obsessed with Saitama, appear in M City?
The sound of pierced air reverberated.
Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop…
Suddenly, the sound of a few sharp weapons piercing through flesh could be heard.
Sonic, who was about to assassinate King, felt an inexplicable pain in several parts of his body after Wang Feng turned around and glared at him. It was as if he had been bitten by a mosquito. However, what frightened him was that his body was out of his control. One had to know that he was an excellent ninja. As a ninja, especially an excellent ninja, his control over his body was extraordinary. But… but now, he found that he cannot control his body. He froze in mid-air, his hands and feet numb, and he gradually lost consciousness. He felt like his whole body had disappeared.
Sonic naturally fell from the air, bounced back into the sky, and quickly landed again, as if to parade his face.
Hey, what kind of performance is this?
Wang Feng was confused about Sonic’s situation. He frowned and stared at Sonic, whose face was changing.
At the same time, his energy bomb hit the Monster and directly smashed him into pieces.
“Ding, there is a converted Card nearby. Host, please go and retrieve it.”
System’s notification appeared, indicating that the pulverized Demon-level Monster had died.
“King, what is this look in your eyes? Pity? Contempt? I, Sonic, will not be easily knocked down. I… must take your life.”
Sonic lay on the ground, paralyzed. Only his eyes could turn. He noticed Wang Feng’s gaze from the corner of his eye and was furious. He used the perseverance he had cultivated for many years to control his body. He slowly pulled out the katana on his back and struggled to stand up.
“King, even if I die, I will die with dignity.” He gritted his teeth, stared at Wang Feng, and slowly got up.
Hey, what’s wrong with this person? Why does he look like he wants to kill me? Is he a killer hired by others to kill me? No, if Sonic was sent to kill me, he would launch an assassination without any expression. Which killer would be so resentful towards a target he doesn’t know at all? Then why does Sonic hate me so much? Oh, did I accidentally blow him up when testing the energy bomb’s trajectory?
Wang Feng stared at Sonic’s face that was full of killing intent in confusion. He was confused and thought that maybe he really did blow up Sonic when he was testing the energy bomb. This would explain why Sonic hated him so much.
I told you, I have never touched Sonic before. Why would he kill me for no reason? It turned out to be the mistake I had just made.
After figuring out the key points, he sincerely said to Sonic, “I’m sorry, I didn’t see you just now. Are you okay?”
“Didn’t… didn’t see me?!” Wang Feng’s words were like a vicious stab into Sonic’s heart. His body froze, and the anger in his heart increased.
King, you are too arrogant. You actually… actually said that I’m not worthy of your sight from beginning to end. Damn it, I am Sonic, an outstanding ninja who graduated from the Ninja Village. How dare you look down on me?!
Sonic was furious; his chest heaved up and down. He stared fiercely at Wang Feng. He held the katana tightly with both hands and tried his best to overcome the anesthesia in his body. He struggled to stand up slowly.
“Is that… a killer?” Hill, who was also monitoring Wang Feng, saw Sonic appear. His heart tightened, and his hand subconsciously held his gun. However, the next second, Sonic suddenly fell from the air. He saw the blue veins on Sonic’s face inexplicably protruding. It seemed that he could not stand up even with all his strength.
Hill gasped, “Is it the result of King’s pressure? Is there really such a strong person in the world who can suppress people with just his presence? It’s too shocking. Does such a strong person need my protection? No, he may not need my protection, but as a policeman, I must protect him, even if my manners are so ridiculous in the eyes of outsiders, but so what? No matter what happens, I will always complete my mission as a policeman – to protect the lives and property of citizens!”
At the same time…
Wang Wang Killer Group.
“Head, all our ice needles were blocked by that person. None of them hit King.”
“Damn it, is that guy here to kill King or to cause trouble?”
Kill Leader immediately recognized that Sonic was the figure Wang Feng had bombarded. “No matter, let’s load the spare ice needles and shoot again. As long as we hit the King, we still have a chance to turn the tables.”
The killers responded in unison and loaded the spare ice needles.
According to Kill Leader’s original plan, when King and the Monster confronted each other, they collectively shot the ice needles at King. As long as a single shot reached King, his whole body would be paralyzed and then torn to pieces by the Monster. There was no need for them to continue to shoot.
However, his flawless plan was ruined because of Sonic. Fortunately, he had made a backup plan. If the Monster was killed or if all shots missed, the second salvo of ice needles would be fired. As long as one shot went through, they could chop and kill King at their own leisure!
“Leader, we are ready.”
“Good! Aim! Ready! Fire!” Kill Leader ordered the assassins to attack rhythmically.
A few sounds of air being pierced rang out once more.
