Chapter 86 Impersonate
Xiào Mu parked the aircraft in the parking lot of Wilderness Forest. Then he opened and enlarged the map sent by the other party. Finally, he confirmed his destination, a white aircraft. Xiào Mu is almost certain that there will be danger waiting for him in the aircraft because he doesn’t think those people will be looking for him just for a talk. After getting off the aircraft, he thought for a while and established a 3-layer spiritual barrier to prevent any spiritual attacks. Instead of going directly to the white aircraft, Xiào Mu contacted the other party and wanted to talk to Hawke. However, there are no response from the call and he became nervous. Worried that Hawke is in trouble, Xiào Mu walked slowly towards the white aircraft.
Before Xiào Mu could reach the aircraft, a cry of pain suddenly rang out. Startled, Xiào Mu saw the door of the white aircraft opened, and someone threw a palm-sized box out from it. At the same time, a strong spiritual attack hit Xiào Mu and his expression changed. His outermost spiritual barrier is broken right away from the attack. After a while, the second layer is also on the edge of shattering so Xiào Mu quickly built 2 more barriers.
Fortunately, the spiritual attack gradually weakened and disappeared after another 3 minutes. Xiào Mu breathed out lightly. This is the strongest attack he had ever encountered. Fortunately, it didn’t last long, otherwise, it would be too dangerous. Xiào Mu looked at the white aircraft suspiciously. This attack device is probably aimed at him. Why was it suddenly thrown out? Before the box is thrown out, he didn’t feel the attack at all. The other party is probably worried about being discovered, so something that could isolate the attack is used in the aircraft. The current situation feels unreasonable no matter how Xiào Mu thinks about it. He hasn’t arrived yet, but the device is already thrown out.
Xiào Mu thought as he walked. Suddenly he stopped and his expression changed. Could it be that Hawke woke up in the middle and had some conflict with the other party? The more he thought about it, the more he felt it is possible. Xiào Mu couldn’t take much into consideration anymore. After building the barriers, he walked quickly towards the white aircraft. When Xiào Mu reached the aircraft, he is stunned by what he saw. The door of the aircraft is open. At a glance, he saw 2 people hugging each other at the door. One of them looked exactly like him at first glance, it’s Greene.
Hearing the sound of movement, the person holding Greene turned his head. His face looked abnormally flushed and his eyes are bloodshot. The person’s expression is cold and in despair as if he is not human at all.
“Mitte!” Xiào Mu recognized the person at a glance.
Hearing that, Mitte blinked. Seemingly thought of something, Mitte quickly hug Greene tightly and turned to Xiào Mu. He said, “Aren’t your spiritual power very strong? Save him, save him!” Mitte hurriedly added, “As long as you save him, I will tell you where your friend is. I will do what I promise.”
Xiào Mu hesitated for a moment. It is Greene’s current appearance and Mitte’s identity that had to make him think about it. They looked like they had an accident when they are trying to scheme against him.
Seeing that Xiào Mu didn’t move, Mitte’s gaze became icy. He hugged the unconscious Greene, almost roaring at Xiào Mu, “Save him! If it wasn’t for you, how could he become like this!”
“Why is he so stupid? Afraid that you will be killed by me and pretend to be you to suffer,” Mitte buried his head on Greene’s shoulders. “The stupidest one is me, I didn’t even notice.”
There is a strong self-blame in Mitte’s tone, he hadn’t expected Greene to do this at all. Mitte hasn’t seen Greene for a few days. Yóu Mò gave him a new task and asked him to finish off Xiào Mu. After that, he can see Greene. Mitte was looking forward to it. He knows that Yóu Mò has something to discuss with other people today, which also means he(M) doesn’t need to worry too much about meeting Greene. When ‘Xiào Mu’ appeared and asked angrily where his friend was, he started the device without even thinking about it. But when he saw ‘Xiào Mu’ holding his head in pain, Mitte immediately realized that something is wrong. This person is not Xiào Mu, but Greene. He hurriedly put the protective device behind Greene’s ear, but it is too late. Greene has fallen in a coma.
Xiào Mu looked at Greene in surprise. In his memory, Greene is timid and shy. They didn’t get along much, and he didn’t understand why Greene did it. Xiào Mu didn’t think too much, he immediately used Pin Hold and Pin Lift on Greene. Then, he probed his filaments into Greene’s spiritual state. Greene is an ordinary person, which generally his spiritual state is very stable. But now that he suddenly got attacked, his spiritual state looked like he was struck by lightning. Xiào Mu used his skills and let his filaments stay in contact to treat Greene’s spiritual state. Not long after, Greene’s eyelids moved and he opened his eyes.
Greene frowned, as if feeling pangs of pain, he closed his eyes again before opening them. Xiào Mu is standing in front of him, so he saw Xiào Mu as soon as he opened his eyes. Greene’s body stiffened and he looked back at Mitte. Opening his hands, Greene’s voice sounded weak but anxious, “You can’t hurt him!” After he finished speaking, Greene looked back at Xiào Mu and said with an imploring tone, “He didn’t harm you, so can you not let anyone arrest him, please?”
Hearing that, Mitte’s hand that is holding Greene turned stiff, and Xiào Mu is stunned. But seeing Greene’s worried look, Mitte understood something in his heart. “You pretended to be him because of me?” Mitte asked Greene while clutching his wrist tightly.
Greene answered with a sad expression, “I can’t do anything else. I have nothing but myself. I don’t want you to get into trouble, but I can’t stop you. If you care about me, even a little bit, can you promise me not to hurt people anymore, please?”
“If you still want to kill Xiào Mu, you can kill me and hand me over to Yóu Mò!”
Greene’s face looked pale and tears flowed uncontrollably. It seemed that the more he thought about it, the sadder he felt. Greene kept choking, his hands weakly grasping Mitte’s clothes. Sounding lost and sad, he continued, “Why do you want to be like this? You can be good but why must it be like this? I’m so scared. It was so uncomfortable. If I don’t care about you, if I don’t like you, would I be fine?”
Greene’s voice is very soft. When mixed with his cries, it made people who heard it feel heavy. Mitte’s expression tensed up, and he reached out to wipe the tears off Greene’s face.
Greene seemed to have fallen into his own thoughts. He continued to mutter with no spirit in his eyes, “If I don’t care about you or like you, I can just treat you as a villain. I can report you and not care about what consequences you will have. Then I won’t be in a sorry situation as I am now.”
Mitte’s lips pressed tightly together. Hearing this, his cheeks moved, and he spurted a mouthful of blood. His body became soft and he fainted. Greene’s eyes widened in surprise and he touched the warm liquid on his face in a daze. When he saw the red color, Greene suddenly realized what was going on and crawled out of Mitte’s arms hurriedly. He held Mitte’s face and shouted tremblingly, “Mitte, Mitte! Wake up, don’t scare me.”
Leo and Ah Da saw this scene when they arrived. Leo ignored the two and stretched out his hands to hug Xiào Mu. But worried that he might be under control and not in a good condition, Leo hesitated and called out, “Xiào Mu?”
Xiào Mu looked at Leo, “I’m fine. It’s just that Hawke was caught and I came here as they requested, but Greene came before me.” As he said that, Xiào Mu check Mitte’s condition. Mitte is an ordinary person so his spiritual state should be very stable too, but at this moment, his spiritual filaments are waving in a flurry of disorder, and his remaining spiritual power is also very low.
Greene begged Xiào Mu with red eyes, “Can you save him? I know he wanted to harm you and deserve it, but please save him.”
Xiào Mu stayed silent for a moment and nodded. He used his skills on Mitte and then said, “But I don’t know why he vomits blood. It’s best to take him back to see the doctor. Do you know where Hawke is kept?”
Greene shook his head and replied guiltily, “I don’t know. I was knocked out. It was another person on that aircraft who caught Hawke.”
Greene pointed to the place where the guy with quiff hairstyle laid unconscious.
Mitte is a wanted criminal, adding to Greene’s suspicious appearance and the unconscious quiff guy, all three of them are taken to the military headquarters by Leo for interrogation. The quiff guy is the first to wake up. It didn’t take much effort to get the information regarding where Hawke is tied up. Perhaps because of fear of being noticeable, Hawke is kept somewhere close to the mall where he was shopping. Hawke is not injured. For him, he simply felt unconscious and slept, but the matter frightened both Huo and Zhao’s family and Lyle. As for Gu Miao, he cried until his eyes turn red like rabbit eyes.
Xiào Mu heaved a sigh of relief when he heard the news, and asked Leo, “Mitte have to be tried before being sentenced, right?”
Leo snorted coldly, “He tried to harm you several times. Doesn’t matter whether there’s a trial or not.
“What about Yóu Mò then?” Xiào Mu asked again.
“He doesn’t admit it but he has already been locked up. With the identification from the wife of Planet Hao’s marshal, he can’t escape no matter how much he quibbles,” Leo said.
Leo sent Xiào Mu back to his apartment to rest, and he returned to the military department to deal with follow-up matters. Yóu Mò refused to admit his relationship with the base. Even after Merry had called him out, he still refused to accept it. Yóu Mò only said that he did know each other when he was a child. Later, when he went to Planet Yan, he never contacted Merry again. Yóu Mò called a lawyer to represent, and Leo contacted Thornton while dealing with Yóu Mò.
From Thorton, Leo asked for all the materials related to Yóu Mò, especially pictures and video materials whenever he showed up in Planet Yan. Yóu Mò has been doing this for many years, no matter how careful he is, he is bound to slip up. It might be difficult to find out the link if no one connects Yóu Mò to the base. But after deliberate investigation, it’s hard not to find the connection. Yóu Mò went in and out of the planet many times through official business and disappeared inexplicably. After inspection, all the places where he disappeared had jump points to reach Planet Lu or the rock planet. In addition, through various monitoring integrations, Yóu Mò and Mitte have been spotted in the same frame no less than 10 times. Mitte has even come forward as a technical assistant of the Forest Interstellar Trading company before.
Yóu Mò watched as pieces of evidence are presented one after another, and finally couldn’t maintain the smile on his face. When he saw Xiào Mu and Leo appear together, his smile disappeared completely.
“You, why are you still fine?!” Yóu Mò looked at Xiào Mu incredulously.
Yóu Mò is very confident in his new instrument, which is to use the concentrated energy box to increase the spiritual power attack to the maximum in an instant. The price is that the energy consumption is very fast and the performance time is not long. However, based on his understanding of spiritual power, those few minutes are enough to deal with anyone, even a god-level guide. So, there should never be a way out.
Xiào Mu laughed, “Why can’t I be fine?”
Yóu Mò’s expression looked ugly, “Where is Mitte?”
Hearing that, Xiào Mu frowned, “His spiritual state is damaged and his brain is traumatized. He is still in a coma now.”
“What happened?” Yóu Mò asked immediately.
Xiào Mu glanced at Yóu Mò, “He gets to enjoy your new creation.”
Stunned, Yóu Mò rejected the statement, “Impossible, he will not make such a low-level mistake. He still has a protective device on his hand.”
Xiào Mu shrugged, “What I said is the truth. I answered so many questions for you. I think you should answer our questions next?”
