Chapter 591: Abilities Computation
"Haha, let the man live a little," Ildan chipped in from the side.
All this time, while four of them were discussing behind, Officer Felgro stayed in his space upfront, not knowing if he should join them or not.
He felt very intimidated now, seeing as Gustav also connected with Miss Aimee. Internally, he prayed Gustav didn't bear a grudge with him, not knowing Gustav didn't care about that.
On the other hand, Mill kept getting angry as he saw everyone's attention focused on Gustav. The mission had not even begun, but he was already hoping for it to come to an end soon.
Hours later, they arrived at Ruhuguy City. The aircraft moved towards the forest area where Gustav met up with Officer Gooseman and the others for the first time.
They landed in that exact same spot, and it looked no different from how Gustav left it two weeks back.
"Welcome officers," Officer Gooseman's fierce face was the first that welcomed them upon their arrival.
Officer Tron and Louis were right behind as well and welcomed them as they got off the aircraft.
"Squad leader Crimson, good to see you again," Officer Gooseman had a look of adoration on his face as he spotted Gustav getting down from the aircraft last.
"Officer Gooseman, Gustav returned the greeting as he walked forward.
The others in the vicinity were not surprised that Gustav was known by this Officer who seemed to be about two official ranks above him.
They realized that this must have been the same checkpoint used when Gustav came here for his first mission.
They all moved towards the main tent to discuss and make plans before the operation officially began.
Just like before, footage of different places within the city was displayed in holographic format within the main tent.
Officer Gooseman explained to them that he had been briefed on the assignment as well and was tasked with supporting them with whatever they needed from here.
He explained that officer Tron and Louis would be assisting them in their infiltration into the city. Gustav already knew how this whole process went, so he didn't really pay attention to it.
Unlike the last time when Officer Gooseman and the others were in charge, this time, all decisions lay on Gustav's shoulder as he was the squad leader. Officer Gooseman and the others were only tasked with support, infiltration, and extraction.
Officer Milly later showed up to present gadgets to everyone to add to the current survival kit. When she was arrived in front of Gustav to hand over his, she had a flustered expression on her face recalling their last encounter,
"I'm sorry about the last time," She apologized with a low tone.
"It's alright. I'm not so petty as to hold a grudge unless my life is threatened," He responded to her with his usual unbothered look, but she could catch a hint of warning in the tone of his voice that suggested he wouldn't take it lightly with anyone that endangered his life.
It was exactly as she thought. Gustav didn't see what happened the last time as a big deal, but if the situation had devolved to something worse, it would have triggered a different attitude.
Just like how he had decided he would kill Yung Jo no matter what after pitting him and Endric together for Endric to get rid of him.
After all, was said and done, they concluded that the infiltration time would be early the next morning. Gustav later called the squad together to follow him deep into the forest, which they obeyed.
During their travel here, he had already come to understand officers Fiona, Darkyl, and Ildan's bloodline abilities. He had competed with Mill before, so he had an idea of what his power entailed, and he had done personal research on every one of them, so he knew about Officer Felgros's bloodline as well.
However, he wanted to see their bloodline abilities in action, so he called them over here for them to display just so he could compute data properly in his head.
He felt it was important to know what they were capable of.
"Show me what you can do," Gustav voiced out.
They didn't need to be told twice before they understood what Gustav meant.
Fiona was the first to turn towards the other side as a pair of purple-colored glowing wings sprouted from her back. Each wing covered a span of seven feet and seemed to be radiating with energy.
With one flap of her wings, a raging wind blasted across the place as she ascended into the air.
Swinging one side of her wing forward caused an arc of purplish radiating energy to burst forth, destroying over seventeen trees in one go.
She repeatedly spun in mid-air, causing fierce wind turbulence that started to blow everyone down back. She didn't want to make it get more intense than it already was so, she stopped after a few more seconds and flew down.
"How high can you fly?" Gustav asked.
"About a seven thousand meters. Anything beyond that, I start to lose oxygen as well as my flight ability," She responded.
Gustav noted this and waited for the others to display their abilities as well.
Officer Darkyl's blackened eyeballs emitted a dark mist that surrounded everyone, and all of a sudden, he was everywhere. He could appear in front of everyone and make contact with anyone at any time he wanted within this mist.
Officer Ildan went next, turning into a pool of water and then transforming into a liquid slimy monster. He showed off some of his water-related abilities before Felgro decided to go next.
His bloodline was related to decomposition and recomposition of physical matter. He turned his clothes into metallic material and asked Gustav to punch him.
Gustav agreed to his request and landed a hit on his chest area, causing him to be sent flying, slamming into several trees in the process and toppling them.
