Interstellar’s First Out of Wedlock Pregnancy
Chapter 25: Sneak Attack
Translated by Addis of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
Except for the oceans surrounding the land, Alpha was almost completely covered with dense forests, and the air quality was extremely good. On such a clear night, one could clearly see the bright stars all over the sky, twinkling like countless small diamonds dotted on black silk.
At this time, it was late at night, and the whole forest was silent. Most of the soldiers in the light shield had gone into their tents to rest, only four soldiers sat by a fire on the edge of the shield.
The light in the shield couldn’t be seen on the outside, and the smoke was dealt with using special equipment. Therefore, from the outside, it was also a dark area, not different from the rest of this silent and dark forest. This was a good way to prevent the soldiers resting here from becoming obvious targets in the dark. After all, the soldiers had worked hard for a whole day. If they couldn’t get enough rest in the evenings, it would be hard to keep up with the fighting the next day.
Although the light shield could resist several monster attacks, leaving them enough time to prepare for battle, Sheryl still left four soldiers to watch the night, for the sake of absolute security.
The night was getting deeper and deeper, and the forest began to fill with a thin layer of fog, floating around the ground.
A soldier sitting by the fire nodded his head, narrowed his eyes, and then quickly opened them again. He rubbed his eyes with his hands and slapped his face; his confused head finally woke up a little.
“Ah – I’m so sleepy. I don’t think it’s necessary to do this in the light shield after more than a week of being here. Commander Sheryl insisted that we keep the night watch rule. “
“Don’t say that. If something bad really is going on, can you afford it?”
At this time, the grass beside the shield suddenly shook violently. A soldier immediately stood up and looked at the other side with vigilance. However, the slight sound ended after a short time.
“What are you so nervous about? Maybe it’s just a rabbit passing by here…”
Before he finished his words, there was a shrill alarm in the shield. A gray tentacle curled and patted the surface, and then curled up in a circle around the top of it, as if to pull it up.
The soldiers sitting next to the fire immediately got up and ran to the tent area where everyone was sleeping, “Alarm! Alert! There’s a monster attack!”
Flustered feet accompanied by harsh sirens immediately awakened all those who were still in their sleep. All of them quickly got out of their sleeping bags and started dressing quickly.
When the alarm went off, Ye Shao immediately sat up, put on his clothes as fast as he could, then sat down next to his sleeping bag and began putting on his shoes.
Long Yuan had already put on his shoes one step at a time, and Xuan Feng, who was lying on one side, followed Long Yuan’s feet with vigor and vitality, and his eyes were eager to look out of the tent.
After seeing Ye Shao stand up, Long Yuan opened his tent and walked out.
All the people who got out of their tents saw the huge gray tentacle coiled above their heads. Under the weak light, they could see that the place where the tentacle was supposed to have a suction cup had turned into a small mouth full of sharp teeth.
From the small mouth, transparent mucus constantly flowed out, dripping on the shield wrapped by it. The water droplets converge into a small stream, rolling down the sides, looking disgusting.
Long Yuan squinted at the tentacles wrapped around the shield. This was the monster Delia mentioned not long ago. Delia had seen its tentacles only once. As for its body, they had no idea where it was hiding.
This monster with human intelligence, after trying for so long and finding that it couldn’t destroy the shield, would he continue to make useless attempts tirelessly? Obviously, this was impossible. What was its real purpose?
Long Yuan’s deep pupils flashed a faint light… It was as if it wanted to attract everyone’s attention and launch a sneak attack…
Yes, this was possible, but how could it sneak in under the protection of the light shield?
Finally, Long Yuan looked around at the land.
So, was it going to launch a surprise attack from the ground?
“What’s the matter?” Ye Shao was about to rush out of the tent, but looking at Long Yuan’s contemplative look standing beside the tent, he couldn’t help asking in doubt.
Long Yuan withdrew his gaze from the ground. “Be careful of the ground.” Just as he said this, a soldier running around the tent suddenly exclaimed!
They saw that a soil mound suddenly appeared in the ground under his feet, and then, a flexible tentacle broke out of the ground, quickly wrapping around his feet and pulling him into the earth pit.
The soldier reached out to grasp something that could stabilize his body, but he could only scratch a long trace on the ground with his fingers, “Ah ah! Help! Help! Ah — “
A soldier who was not far away reacted; he immediately threw himself at the dragged soldier, quickly grabbing his hand and stopping his downward trend, before standing and pulling him up.
The dragged soldier breathed a sigh of relief, but soon his face appeared extremely pained. His eyes began to turn upwards, the blue veins on his head bulged out, his lips trembled but he could not even scream. Then he suddenly spewed out a mouthful of blood, and his pained eyes quickly lost their luster.
The soldier holding him felt that his hands were light. He could not bear the force, so he sat down on the ground. Then, the soldier’s upper body full of blood was pulled into his arms. The blood stained intestines from his broken abdomen covered the ground, and a lot of blood sprinkled on his body.
Seeing this terrible scene, all the soldiers panicked.
Sheryl stood there, trying to keep the scene in control, “Be quiet! Don’t panic! All soldiers get in your mechas immediately!” But his voice was lost in the noise.
In this flustered situation, a few more earth mounds raised on the calm ground and rushed towards the flustered crowd. The gray tentacles, like the claws of death, quickly reached out to the nearest soldier.
Without hesitation, Ye Shao reached to his boot, drew out his lightsaber, and rushed towards the tentacle. It was too late for him to summon his mecha.
The flexible leg muscles burst out in an instant, and Ye Shao’s slender body leaped out like a cheetah. The light of the lightsaber swept a dark-blue track in the dark, and then cut down on a tentacle that was about to roll up the soldier’s waist.
Although the saber was strong enough to cut the steel plate, only a shallow half-moon wound was made on the tentacle. Ye Shao’s pupils shrank in surprise, and then he bent back to escape the reach of the tentacles.
The tentacles cut by Ye Shao no longer attacked other soldiers. Instead, they all stood in mid air and turned their tips in Ye Shao’s direction.
Three inches below the tip of the tentacle, there was a small mouth covered with sharp teeth. Even in the dark, the ring of sharp teeth gave out a chilling light. It spit out a mouthful of transparent mucus, and fiercely pounced on Ye Shao!
Ye Shao held up his lightsaber and quickly blocked one of the tentacles. His flexible waist bent and his foot stepped on a tentacle that tried to sneak from below. He continued to jump to the rear with his strength.
Long Yuan took a few steps forward while Ye Shao ran out, then he stopped. He looked down at Xuan Feng and said, “Xuan Feng, change into photon gun form! Hurry!”
“No problem! Look at me!” Xuan Feng jumped from the ground into the air, its whole body burst out a golden light, and instantly elongated, thickened, and at last a white barrel wrapped with gold appeared in the air.
Long Yuan quickly took it and put it on his shoulder. When he did, a round lens appeared in front of his eyes. The scene in the distance was zooming in and out in front of his eyes. A small red dot flashed in the center of the lens while shortening the distance.
Long Yuan narrowed his eyes and, as soon as a tentacle hit Ye Shao, he aimed at it and quickly pressed the button under the barrel. A white light twinkled in the muzzle of the gun, and then shot out immediately. The tentacle that was aimed at was shot out more than ten meters and hit the light shield wall hard!
The huge power of the photon gun shook the whole light shield for a moment, but such a powerful attack did not break the tentacles, just leaving a wound as big as a palm. This was enough to show how strong its defense capability was.
Long Yuan frowned slightly, then continued to aim at the other tentacles. The dazzling white light constantly lit up in the shield, and large holes were blown in the ground.
After dodging another tentacle attack, Ye Shao fell to the ground and rolled away from the range of the tentacle attacks when Long Yuan aimed again.
The tentacle couldn’t attack again under the non-stop bombardment of Long Yuan. It shook a few times, and the tip of its mouth opened and closed quickly. Then it rapidly retracted from the hole it just appeared from.
And the tentacle that originally twined on the top of the light shield immediately retreated and disappeared into the trees the next second.
