Pika Pika No Mi In Marvel - P.P.N.M.M Chapter 44: Encounter with Mystique
“Thank you for saving me,” Nightcrawler said earnestly, expressing his gratitude. Although Yu Feng and Jean appeared to be just children, younger than him by a considerable margin, Nightcrawler spoke to them with respect.
How could he not respect them?
Looking at the motionless figures around him, resembling statues, Nightcrawler couldn’t help but swallow nervously. He knew that these two kids seemed harmless, but in reality, they were likely formidable individuals.
“It’s alright. We are mutants just like you,” Jean confidently waved her little hand and then looked at Yu Feng, asking, “Yu, what do we do next?”
“Let’s move on,” Yu Feng replied.
The mercenaries and members of the Essex Corporation around them were just hired laborers and had no access to the core of the company. Only the man in the suit with glasses seemed to have a higher status. However, after Jean glanced into his mind, she also didn’t find any further details about the Essex Corporation. Therefore, Yu Feng didn’t plan to waste time here and decided to leave directly.
“The Essex Corporation… Since they are capturing mutants everywhere and conducting frantic genetic research, perhaps there might be some mysterious substances inside the company,” Yu Feng thought to himself. After all, substances like the M-Gene Serum could be considered mysterious. Although the probability was low, a company as large as the Essex Corporation should have some clues.
Unfortunately, apart from the information about the “extraordinarily powerful mutant” captured by the circus, there was nothing else. Even the specific address of the Essex Corporation was unknown, only random locations for trading mutants and fake company addresses.
These people were probably just mutant hunters cooperating with the Essex Corporation, insignificant to Yu Feng.
“Well, let’s go,” Jean nodded and then beckoned to Nightcrawler, saying, “By the way, Nightcrawler, where do you plan to go from here?”
“To be precise, I am called Nightcrawler, my real name is Kurt Wagner,” Nightcrawler corrected and then scratched his head, looking troubled. “As for where I plan to go, I don’t know. I’ve been in this circus since I was very young, and I have no idea what the outside world is like.”
“I see,” Jean said. “How about you come with us?”
“Sure!” Nightcrawler’s eyes lit up immediately, nodding eagerly. He had wanted to accompany Yu Feng and Jean, but he was afraid of being rejected. Now that Jean mentioned it, he was more than willing to join them.
Yu Feng didn’t mind either. After all, their journey around the world was almost complete, and it was time to return to school. Bringing Nightcrawler back to the mutant school as a member who would inevitably be part of the future X-Men was also a good idea.
Soon, Yu Feng, Jean, and Nightcrawler left the circus. Once their figures disappeared, the motionless members of the Essex Corporation and circus members returned to normal. However, those who were in the midst of pouring water might feel extremely perplexed. They wouldn’t even realize that the water had been poured and had soaked the floor, while they remained completely unaware…
“That’s great. You’ll be glad about your decision. Here is the money you wanted, and as for this… ‘demon,'” the Essex Corporation employee said, his mouth curved into a smile. He spoke while his gaze was fixed on the box in front of him. However, he was dumbfounded.
“Huh? Where’s the box? And that… ‘demon’?” he exclaimed.
“We… We don’t know…” the employee stuttered.
“Damn it! Find that box and that… ‘demon’ immediately, or all of you from the Munich Circus will die!” The employee’s smile vanished.
Berlin’s night market exuded an exhilarating, indescribable extravagance. In the midst of neon lights intersecting, there was a dark corner where people occasionally entered and exited, engaging in various activities such as kissing and fighting. There were even homeless people crouched in the corners, their eyes gleaming like night cats as they watched those who were kissing.
At this moment, a golden-haired woman, wearing high heels and smooth stockings, walked over. She had a seductive aura and walked with a sense of urgency. Behind her was a young man who seemed startled, his gaze filled with panic.
“Hehehe, look, a little wildcat…” a drunkard holding a bottle staggered over, noticing the incredibly sexy woman approaching him. He grinned, revealing yellow and ugly teeth.
However, as the woman approached, a lightning-fast elbow strike shot at the drunkard!
The drunkard’s chin was lifted, and his eyes bulged. In the next moment, he collapsed and lay motionless on the ground, his neck twisted at an odd angle.
This scene made some people who were trying to approach hesitate, a cold sweat breaking out on their backs. They unconsciously stepped back.
“Come in,” the woman continued her stride, reaching the end of the corner. She skillfully opened an iron door, gesturing to the young man.
“Uh, okay,” the young man nodded, swallowing hard, and followed her through the door.
Behind the door was like entering a whole new world.
The air was filled with pleasant music.
Some people sat quietly, drinking.
Others whispered to each other.
There were also people lined up in front of a camera. With a click, a bright flash illuminated the area, and the person who took the photo would open the film, take out the developed pictures, and produce them like identification cards, exchanging money with the person who took the photo.
“Caliban is delighted to see you again, even though it’s not really you,” a strangely insidious voice rang out from a nearby counter as the woman walked in.
The person turned around.
He had a pale complexion, sunken eye sockets, and no hair on his head. His whole appearance was both ugly and peculiar, but his eyes emitted a sharp and profound light. He smiled at the woman.
“Caliban wonders what brings you here?”
“Identity for this guy.” The said woman indifferently, throwing a roll of money directly.
“Oh, is that so? May Caliban know the gentleman’s name?” Caliban smiled faintly upon seeing the money, raised his hand quickly to take it, and then turned around to prepare the materials for the identification cards. However, at that moment…
“Hmm?!” Caliban furrowed his brows and looked towards the entrance.
The woman remained expressionless, but seeing Caliban’s reaction, she became puzzled and also looked towards the entrance.
And at that moment, her eyes immediately lit up.
“Little brother… is that you?!”
