Queen tightened her hold on the shield as she slammed it toward Su Xiao.
Su Xiao’s body lowered slightly as he stabilized his centre of gravity. This person was very fast, it was too late to dodge.
Dragon Flash appeared in front of him as he prepared to deal with the shield.
Queen was like a wild bison, hitting Su Xiao head-on.
Su Xiao held the sword with one hand and placed his other hand on the back of the blade to stabilize it.
As the two collided together, the sharp sword met the Shield, and the asphalt road under their feet suddenly cracked.
“Your strength is not bad.”
Su Xiao put power into his hands and pressed towards Queen.
Queen was a physically strong person, but her strength could not compare with Su Xiao. As such, she was forced to compete with Su Xiao by using her combat skills.
Queen’s pretty face reddened from effort, yet she was continuously pushed back by Su Xiao. The iron boots on her feet created sparks as it ground against the asphalt.
“You will not have a chance to hurt my teammates while I’m here.”
She was not strong, but she was quite obdurate.
Su Xiao continued to exert strength into his hands. Queen could no longer support herself and squatted down with one knee to the ground.
She used the name ‘Queen’, because she thought herself and wanted to be seen as a strong, capable woman, but now she was surprisingly forced to kneel in front of Su Xiao, she certainly could not tolerate that.
“I’ll kill you!!”
Queen tried to escape, but with the absolute power gap between them, she seemed powerless.
Su Xiao grabbed the edge of Queen’s Shield with one hand and was ready to pull the giant shield aside.
He won’t cut through her shield, this was not a game. His strength was higher than Queen’s. As such, he certainly could use brute force to take care of the shield, then he would cut her down.
Queen was surprised, she had not encountered this kind of enemy before. He surprisingly grabbed the shield with his bare hands. Shouldn’t they have a fierce battle first?
Su Xiao pulled the shield in front of Queen to the side, and immediately afterwards Dragon Flash pricked into Queen’s throat.
At the moment he was about to strike, there was a vague stinging sensation on his upper back.
It was the sniper. The time was too short, Suzuya had not rushed to the top of the building yet.
Su Xiao decided, he turned and hid behind Queen’s shield. Queen was so stunned she almost fell.
The bullet hit the shield, which sunk in, but stopped the bullet. The shield was slightly deformed now and the small area where the bullet hit was even reddened.
Su Xiao’s hand was a little numb because of the power behind the bullet.
Taking this opportunity, Queen pulled on her shield and separated from Su Xiao. She then took a few steps back.
This female shield warrior, with her high physical strength, had never encountered this kind of weird enemy before, he surprisingly robbed her of her shield as soon as they faced each other.
While Queen was feeling humiliated, she also felt a bit awkward. She decided that after returning to the Reincarnation Paradise, she must increase her strength attribute a bit. Otherwise, it would be too embarrassing should her shield be taken away by her enemy again.
If she did not desperately grab on to the shield, it would no longer be in her hands, and even with her extremely high vitality, she would be killed.
“Cooperation between the shield warrior and the sniper, how interesting.”
It was the first battle against contractors for Su Xiao, but he had a general understanding of the contractors now.
The female shield warrior in front of him may have only strengthened one attribute and was only responsible for defence, while the main attacker was the sniper.
This was a good combination, with another auxiliary occupation, it would be perfect.
Su Xiao was not afraid of these enemies, his combat power and vitality surpassed them.
While other contractors formed combat teams with many people, Su Xiao himself was a combat unit.
“Leaves, switch to strength, don’t boost vitality anymore, this bastard is grabbing my shield!”
Queen’s tone was somewhat helpless, stunning Leaves, who hid in the alley, but she immediately switched the aura, changing from the original vitality aura to a strength aura.
“You shameless man, how dare you try to fight me.”
Queen posed with her shield heroically raised.
“I am curious about one thing, what is this changing aura on your body? In addition to the sniper, do you have other teammates?”
When Queen heard Su Xiao’s words, she kept her face as usual, there was no change.
At this time, if she were to reveal too much emotion, Leaves may be exposed. Leaves was weak, she was unable to directly fight with enemies.
“Stupid, this is the aura of this Queen.”
Su Xiao smiled.
“Really? Let me guess, where could your third teammate be?”
Queen sneered, trying to show disdain, but she was actually a little anxious.
“If it is me, where would I hide my auxiliary companions, on the roof? In buildings? Alleys?”
Su Xiao seemed to randomly guess, but he was testing the shield warrior in front of him.
He didn’t know how many people they had, he just guessed. Giving the enemy mental pressure during battle was very important advantage.
“Don’t talk nonsense.”
Queen shouted and rushed to Su Xiao with her shield.
This time, Queen was a lot smarter, slowing down her pace and pursuing stability.
Su Xiao just squinted at the female shield warrior in front of him, not ready to focus on her, as there was still the sniper.
Su Xiao suddenly ran into the other direction and pulled away from Queen.
Queen was worried, what she was most afraid of had happened. The man in front of her did not fight against her, but was going ahead to attack her teammates instead.
“Don’t think about leaving.”
Queen lifted one hand up and a silver rope appeared in the palm of her hand.
The silver rope was half transparent, the chain as thick as a finger. One side tied around Su Xiao’s arm and then fused together.
[You are bound by the ‘mystery rope’, physical strength is judged.]
[The strength of the user is 2.33 times higher than yours. You will not be able to move further than 30 meters away from the user.] [E/N: I don’t get it, wasn’t he stronger till now…?]
Su Xiao’s footsteps halted. He did not stop willingly, but was forced to.
Su Xiao looked at the translucent silver rope on his arm. He tried to cut it, but there was no effect. Dragon Flash merely passed through the silver rope, apparently, it was not a solid item.
“I said, don’t think about leaving.”
For the first time since the beginning of the fight, Queen had finally gained the upper hand, which inevitably excited her a little.
Queen believed in Black-white’s shooting skills. As long as she could force Su Xiao to stand in place, Black-white could kill him with a shot or two.
Su Xiao looked at Queen with killing intent in his eyes.
“You really want to die?”
He had just killed hundreds of ghouls, so he easily fell into the proper mindset. His eyes flashed with coldness, surprising Queen.
Inevitably, she thought about how many people he must’ve killed. Even in the derivative world’s, contractors killed at most a dozen or so people.
Even so, most contractors suffered tremendous mental stress from that.
“Don’t bluff, my strength may not be as good as yours, but if you want to kill me, well, you are just not qualified.”
Su Xiao moved his sore left arm, then cut the heavy battle suit he wore and threw it aside.
He had to be serious. If he doesn’t kill her quickly, he would waste too much time.
He activated the skill [Azure Steel Shadow]. The contractor’s vitality was not high, so the true damage from [Azure Steel Shadow] would work wonders against this contractor.
The light blue arc rushed along the blade of Dragon Flash. Su Xiao’s feet heavily impacted against the ground, as he rushed towards Queen.
Before, when he fought Queen, he was not serious at all. It had always been his goal to get away from Queen, to kill her teammates first.
Now that he was serious, Queen suddenly felt great pressure.
