Morales entered a strangely steady and peaceful mood as the 5 thugs entered the room orderly with a cold expression on their faces. They already saw him as a dead man, so there was no need in communicating again.
Clang!! With loud metallic ringing sounds, the heavy steel restraints were finally removed from his hand.
As soon as the restraints were removed, he finally felt the familiar feeling of freedom. He felt like invisible shackles were just removed from his body.
“Hehe, what a pity. We would not have another toy to play with for a while, this one would become blood and meat very soon”. One of the thugs mocked, causing the others to erupt in laughter.
Though they laughed, this did not disrupt their movements as they reached his side in an instant.
They quickly yanked him up before turning to lead him away. The first 3 thugs took the front, while the remaining 2 who held him trailed behind. As they escorted him confidently, he finally made his move.
This was one of the perfect scenarios that he hoped for to increase his success rate. With 3 of them at the front, he could quickly take care of the two who held him and still have time to react to any unexpected complications.
Whoosh!! With a shake of his shoulders, his elbow suddenly launched backward fiercely at the thug who was holding him on the right.
As the thug was slightly behind him, the elbow hit his chest squarely with fierce momentum. He coughed out blood as his chest caved in a bit like a hammered shrimp while the force pushed him backward.
You successfully launched a critical strike, your attack dealt 20% more damage.
Your target has been inflicted with the stunned status
As the thug staggered backward like a drunkard, Morales’s hand moved extremely fast, drawing out the 2 daggers that were strapped to the side of his waists out.
This was his real target from the beginning. No matter how much strength he got during this hour, fighting without a weapon was something that he did not want to experience.
Before the other thug that held him on the left could react, his hand already stabbed outwards as the dagger firmly impaled the agent’s heart with frightening precision.
Ptui!! The dagger easily pierced through, killing the agent immediately. The other 3 thugs at the front finally noticed the commotion as they hastily turned around while reflexively groping around for their guns.
Seeing this, Morales suddenly felt a strange feeling of concentration take over him as his surrounding now felt like it was being played in slow motion.
He needed to act fast because if a gun was shot, his escape would become a lot more complicated.
Everything around him started being displayed in 3d lines, making his sight and hearing senses keener as he acted immediately.
You fulfilled the conditions and successfully activated innate ability, adrenaline rush. +10% increase to all attributes for 30 seconds.
The sudden activation of this hidden innate skill was a surprise boon to him. But this could only happen as a result of his many experiences in the game.
As he was a veteran who knew most, if not all the main skills of the various classes. He knew the moves that had a certain small percentage of activating a hidden ability.
The other reason for his smooth moves was his identity as a retired soldier. His military skills were not completely useless in the game, they still had some practical uses.
His brain quickly calculated and analyzed the situation before arriving at the right method to remedy it immediately.
He grabbed the metallic reinforced torture chair that he was originally restrained to and smashed it at the still staggering stunned thug behind him.
You have 15 strength [+8.5 strength from wielding metal chair and adrenaline rush. The target has 10 strength.
As you have over twice as much strength as your target, your attack dealt 50% more damage.
You have killed a guard of a secret underground dungeon, gaining 320 experience.
After doing this, he quickly turned and leaped back at the 3 remaining thugs who were already at the end phase of pulling out their guns.
The 3 thugs were horrified from seeing their comrades die so easily to this spoiled brat as they hastily tried to physically resist and restrain him before they could shoot their guns.
They tried; it was just unfortunate that Morales had significantly higher dexterity which meant, there was hardly any suspense.
His figure blurred and reached their position in a second as he kicked the gun away from the first agent’s hand while lunging forward at the second one to tackle him down.
The tackled thug tried to resist but he was crushed from the huge attributes difference immediately.
After knocking him down, Morales reversed his grip on the daggers as they stabbed deeply into both ends of this unfortunate fellow’s neck.
After killing his 3rd target, his leg launched forward as he performed a whirlwind kick at the fourth thug that already cocked his gun.
Bam!! The thug staggered backward from the force as his grip on his gun wobbled a bit, but he still firmly held to it. He stood in a daze as the force of the kick disoriented his brain immensely.
Morales took hold of this opportunity. Leaving his now dazed target, he circled behind the agent who he kicked first.
The agent already rushed to pick his gun back up, but on turning back he could no longer see his opponent. He suddenly stiffened as he felt a sharp pang of pain strike from his back.
Morales stabbed his first dagger into his target’s spine, killing his nervous system immediately before using his other hand to cover the thug’s mouth. Blood blossomed as his dagger ruthlessly severed his target’s throat.
Critical Hit: -69
Critical Hit: -105
Active Skill- Beheading
[You used a normal attack to imitate the beheading skill.]
Unlocking Skill: Learning progress rate [+2%]
You have killed a guard of a secret underground dungeon, gaining 320 experience.
This move was overkill on his part as the damage dealt was far more than the health points of his target.
He didn’t do it for the damage though, he did it to learn the original skill. This was just an imitation, so the strength was unlike the real deal.
In Space World, if you know a move but you don’t have it as a skill. You can slowly learn it as a skill by repeatedly performing it, it will be recorded as you learning it.
After completing the learning, then you can activate it by spending experience points. This was where his experience as a soldier came to play.
After he finished up his 4th opponent, he finally turned to face the last hurdle. To his bad luck, the agent already stabilized himself as he kept a steady aim at him, ready to open fire at any moment.
Seeing this, he felt sour as his stealth act would be revealed if a gunshot sound echoed out.
As he just stood looking at the sweating agent, an idea suddenly flashed past his mind. He acted on it immediately as anything was better than nothing.
His face suddenly bloomed into a wide flirtatious smile as his white teeth sparkled from the light illumination. The agent was startled on seeing this, making him suddenly stiffen.
This hesitation cost his life as Morales threw both his daggers out immediately. The daggers stabbed his opponent’s throat, snuffing the remaining life out of him.
The agent jerked and convulsed before falling down with a loud thud. His neck was destroyed and mangled like a bunch of smashed tomatoes.
Though Morales was happy at the result of the small battle, his face could not help but blush and go red as the interface prompted him with another notification.
Passive skill’s effect temporarily increased due to lewd smile. [+15% increase to charisma]
Duration: 15 seconds
“F**k, did I just kill somebody by smiling sexily? So shameful, I’m a man for God’s sake”. He cursed as his originally thick skin could not take this in calmly at all.
Well, he had more important things to care about so he didn’t fuss about this again. After looting the thugs of their guns, small range bombs, and daggers, he finally gave attention to checking their stats.

“Nice, such fine goodies. The tactical knives actually have a stat bonus of +2 dexterity, no wonder I was able to activate adrenaline rush so easily”. He was overjoyed on seeing these stats.
Though these weapons were not exceptional in any regard, especially the desert eagle, anything is better than nothing. A beggar was not a chooser after all.
Though he felt compelled to curse that what could a 1% increase in critical hit rate affect, he knew he had to lower his expectations for these lowly guards.
After settling everything, he changed into the guard uniform of one of the agents that looked the cleanest, donned his cap before moving outside the dungeon room.
As soon as Morales came outside the small dungeon room, he immediately deduced that he was standing in a long corridor. The room where he was held was at the very end of the corridor. Through the light illumination, he noticed that the corridor stretched roughly to both sides like the internal belly of a dead anaconda. After observing his surrounding for a short moment without making it too obvious, he closed the door naturally like nothing was wrong. He started moving forward as smoothly as he could. He took all these counter-measures because he found out that security cameras were placed on both ends of the corridor. As he moved forward, he was surprised
From the 9 agents that Morales killed to forge his way here, he got a total of 2960 experience from them. He channeled them all to level up. As he did not have an active pugilist skill yet, he would make up for it with superior attributes.______________________________Pugilist [Novice] has been raised to level 2+10 Energy, +1 STR, +1 END+2 free attribute points+1 talent point…Pugilist [Novice] has been raised to level 5+10 Energy, +1 STR, +1 END+2 free attribute points+1 talent point__________________________________It cost him 3000 experience to level his main class up to level 5 as experience required to level up doubled after each subsequent leveling.As his interface sent him notifications, his mind became calm and serene, prompting his muscles to itch like tentacles were wrapping him up. He felt like a slumbering energy deep within him just awakened.As a r
Feeling the pressure being emanated by the head dungeon protector and the hostile gazes of the dungeon protectors around, the elite squad leader’s fragile heart fractured immediately.Stammering, he quickly spilled out every detail of what transpired without excluding any detail.“Hmmm, he actually broke the bloodline shackles and became a pugilist, interesting”. Shasha muttered with a smile that was not a smile before turning around, getting ready to go back.“If you really shot so many times at him, there’s an 80% chance that he would die in the river”. He directed this at the elite agents before pausing a bit.“But you allowing him to escape is incompetence on your part, I don’t breed shit stirrers here, I bred fighters”. As soon as she said this, she waved her hand prompting a red energy field to erupt from her position.Before the 4 elite agents could even comprehend what she just said, the
Not long after the slave trade gang leader announced to them, they finally saw the outline of a mining base appearing before them.The sun shone glaringly on the rooftop of the large base security building, making its smooth surface reflect the light in other directions.Apart from the security building, the mining base had a large building at the center that was surrounded by a larger and more durable defense fence. The surrounding outside the fence was the real mining base, stretching for kilometers.It was an underground mining base, so deep trenches leading underground covered most parts of the base. Streamlined slopes made using machines covered most parts of the base strategically to protect it from the fierce beast attacks.The animals in Beiger were all outrageously strong as most of them were mutated beasts. There were some that already even awakened intelligence, this was based on their level.Morales and the new group of slaves did not e
It was another bright day in the mining base as the sun shone glaringly at the mineworkers like an angry girl confronting her cheating boyfriend. They all worked without distraction under the strict supervision of the mine base guards. Their afternoon shift was surface mining, that was why they had to endure the unrelenting punishment of the sun. Sweat dripped down like falling waterfalls from Morales’s face as he lifted another big metal bucket packed full of steel and some other metal ores, before slowly climbing up the steep slopes of the mining base. The slaves all had fatigued expressions on their faces as some kept on digging deeper while others carried their harvest up the way Morales was doing.&
In the dark underground shelter of the mining base, as the other slaves slept, a figure was already up. He looked smilingly at the sword that came into his hand mysteriously from nowhere.Morales’s smile was wide as he softly caressed the sparkling metal body of the sword.Lionel always asked him again and again for the past few days why he did not demand a weapon to be crafted for him. He always replied with a smile, and that he already has his own weapon.Though the latter always looked at him doubtfully after hearing him, he gave up in the end as he was the leader. The risk of their uphill endeavor was clear to them all.It took a lot of willpower on his part to prevent his desire to bring out the weapon that he got from his system lottery draw for the past days. Finally, he could freely bring it out today.All it required from him was to let his intention known and the sword mysteriously materialized from the system.He was waiting
In the most luxurious room at the center-most point of the mining base, the leader of the base slept peacefully. As a beast-man, his sleeping posture was not the most decent.Grr!!Chakra spread his body like a rag across the large king-sized bed as his loud snores echoed across the room like rumbling and boiling water. His physique could only be described as wild.As he was not a human, most of the things seen as indecent to them were daily normal occurrences to him. His naked body twitched at intervals on his bed as the faint wind blowing into the room tickled his thick skin hair.All his burly muscles were clearly outlined, forming a stunning sight depicting immense manliness, but the group of people who were entering the room stealthily did not admire this. They did not have weird tendencies.As soon as he entered the room, the first thing that Morales did was to use his detect skill on their dangerous target immediately.---------------
Despite laying weakly on the floor, Morales was clearheaded enough to deduce that their escape was not guaranteed yet. After doing a short breathing technique to recover his stamina a bit, he finally stood up.After repeatedly confirming that the first battle was over and he was safe, the strongest thief who followed them in finally came out of his stealth.Seeing this, Morale’s mouth twitched but he could not complain as he knew that this guy’s main class was a paper class. He motioned him over as his other 4 leaders also slowly recovered from their exertion.“It’s time, Nightwing. We already did all the hard work of killing Chakra, now go and inform the others of our victory”.“Tell them to start the attack, tell them that victory is ours, but remember to warn them to follow the plan that we laid out. No one should abandon the plan and fight recklessly”.“I don’t want anyone to botch our escap
