Chapter 1150 Count Me In
Author's Note: Unedited Chapter
-(The Sticky Void)
Grand commander s.h.i.+on's original speed had been interfered with due to the laws of the sticky void.
The unknown a.s.sailants were aware that someone as powerful as Grand Commander s.h.i.+on would be able to break out of the void due to his strength but the hinderance from the void had delayed him quite a bit.
This was why they had acted very quickly in removing him from the equation as they had not expected someone this powerful to be on the s.h.i.+p.
They were well aware of the powerlevel of the IYSOP candidates being unable to contend against the laws of the sticky void so the plan looked solid without Grand Commander s.h.i.+on's existence.
"Phew..." The captain of the a.s.sailants let out a sigh of relief after Grand Commander s.h.i.+on's disappearance.
"Don't expect to be saved... we sent him very very far from here!" He stated with a strong tone afterwards.
"Now send Gustav Crimson out if you all wish to survive," He added.
Within the s.p.a.cecraft the candidates all stared at each other with conflicted looks as they struggled to come up with an answer to this unexpected predicament.
-"Where is Gustav?"
-"I haven't seen him since,"
-"I think i saw him heading for the control room,"
-"We can't believe this maniacs! They are definitely lying,"
Gustav who was stationed in the control room all this time finally stepped out.
A metallic shutter like door slid open up ahead and they watched as an irrefutably domineering presence walked towards them.
"I'll go," Gustav voiced out amidst the chatters and stares.
"We dont even know what they want with you?"
"It definitely isn't anything good,"
Matilda, Angy and Aildris voiced out simultaneously.
"Send Gustav out now if you want to survive," The voice of the captain rang out once more.
"Let us try to communicate with them first to finf out why they want him," Falco suggested.
Aildris tapped on some controls attached to the s.p.a.cesuit which had a s.p.a.ce transmission function.
Although everything on the s.p.a.cecraft had stopped working, the s.p.a.cesuit still functioned well. The only bad part was they couldn't use the s.p.a.cesuit to communicate with others at very long distances.
"Incoming transmission link," Rick stated from within the other s.p.a.cecraft.
"Hmm from the kids? Okay accept it," The captain responded from above.
A small static sound rang out before a masculine voice was heard.
-"Why do you lots want Gustav Crimson?"
"Who do you think we are and what do you think we do?" The captain questioned in response.
"That is for you to reveal and for me to listen," Aildris replied with a calm tone.
"You've got s.p.u.n.k kid... we are Intergalactic bounty hunters. We've got a contract for the Gustav Crimson's head," The captain replied while his dark tentacles kept waving.
"So you have plans of killing him?" Aildris inquired.
"Yes... that is what having a contract for his head means," The captain replied with a weird tone.
"Unfortunately, we will have to refuse," Aildris replied.
"You kids don't have a choice. Either you give him to us or you die here along with him," The captain stated.
"You kids are lucky Rick doesn't want any collateral damage which is why we are willing to save the rest of you. Should you kids decide to hand Gustav over, you get to live," He added.
"Hmm I am guessing we all perish in this place if we fail to find our way out?" Aildris questioned in a knowing manner.
"Yes. The sticky void keeps you within and then shrink everything within to a molecular level till eventually you all vanish so even if we chose not to do anything, Gustav Crimson will still perish here. We are just being generous right now," The captain revealed.
Within the IYSOP s.p.a.cecraft, the candidate gasped in terror upon the revelation of how dangerous the sticky void was.
'Just as I thought,' Gustav said internally as he slightly raised his left hand.
Afterimages appeared with every movement which was another insight Gustav took notice of upon their arrival here.
He could already sense the difference and how their internal anatomy as well as the anatomy of everything within this part of s.p.a.ce was slowly changing.
Movement was immensely difficult because it felt like you had to travel longer to get to whwre you wanted to be and Gustav sense it would be even worse outside the s.p.a.cecraft.
"If you kids want to get out of here, I suggest you hand over Gustav Crimson," The captain stated once more.
The s.p.a.cecraft was currently unoperational since the pilots and navigatorshad tried their best in starting it but nothing worked.
if they had not knocked out the engines and energy systems of the s.p.a.cecraft, the pilots would have been able to activate a jump that would get them out of the sticky void.
'Looks like they calculated properly before they made their move,' Gustav could see that the intergalactic bounty hunters actions were almost flawless to this point.
"Why are you lots unaffected?" Aildris asked through the comms.
"So long as we are inside this bubble, the laws of the sticky void will not apply to us. We are truly your only ticket out of here," The captain replied.
"So... as long as we can get into that bubble we're safe?" Aildris inquired.
"Yes," The captain responded.
"Alright then, we'll just switch s.p.a.cecraft," Aildris stated.
"What do you mean by that?" The captain questioned with a confused tone.
"It means we're not giving Gustav up you punk a.s.s b.i.t.c.h," E.E's loud voice suddenly rang out through the comms.
"Who is that vulgar creature?" The captain sounded irritated as he spoke.
"Go ask your granny motherfuc*er cos we bout to send you on a one way ticket to the afterlife," E.E replied with a loud laughter which caused everyone in the vicinity to also began laughing.
The tensed atmosphere turned lighter upon E.E's remark causing everyone to relax a bit as they looked into the situation.
"I don't know about you guys but I really wanna whoop these bounty hunters a.s.ses," E.E stated.
"They're getting on my nerves too calling us kids," Fildhor voiced from the side with a annoyed look.
"I'm in for the a.s.s whooping," Teemee announced.
"This sounds fun, count me in," Sheila giggled while voicing out.
"Count me in too," Angy yelled out.
This created a domino effect in which everyone except for Gustav agreed to deal with the Intergalactic bounty hunters.
Three officers landed hits on different body parts of the same mech again, causing it to fall to its knees as another fist size hole was left on its armor.
The MBO officers were winning but they had no idea this was a distraction.
In another part of the Conventional centre, two Genxodus members with black masks squatted and hid themselves within the mult.i.tude of fans.
"Currently setting up the remote connector," One of them answered through their secret comms.
"In three minutes it will be ready and we will blast this place to kingdom come,"
The same masked member reported once more.
On the ground they had a row of bar like metals set on the ground.
-"How is the signal looking?"
-"All good, it's almost set..."
From the looks of things, in three minutes the Genxodus would manually detonate the nanites.
-"Hold on for at least three minutes,"
Every Genxodus member who had equipped the mech heard this announcement through the comms.
At this point, three had been put out of commission but the members were still within.
"Stay down or you will perish right now!"
One of the MBO officers voiced out to the mech on the ground in front of them.
"It is very unwise to engage us knowing we do not care about the lives of anyone here," A voice was heard from the person within the mech.
"Huh?" The MBO officers exclaimed while they moved closer.
The instant the MBO officers heard this their eyes widened...
The mech exploded in the next instant, engulfing a radius of a thousand feet in an instant.
A blueish sphere suddenly appeared around the flames, trapping them in a kind of bubble before they could spread any further.
Unfortunately, some fans were caught in the range of the flames and were quickly turned into barbecue.
"s.h.i.+t!" One of the officers yelled out after witnessing this unfortunate sight, however they didn't know that this wasn't the end...
The other two that had been put down as well also detonated their mech.
"Huh? What was that?" Gustav wondered out loud as he felt the vibration from the original dimensional frequency.
His original body was still pa.s.sed out in place so he could sense his surroundings were in shambles.
"I can't waste any more time here, I need to get rid of this as soon as possible," Despite saying this, Gustav was still unsure of how to do this.
What he was staring at was something that had no switches or b.u.t.tons he could operate so he was at a loss on how to deal with this.
