The Devil's Cage Chapter 191


Chapter 191: Surprise Attack

"Haaaa!"

A strong, fierce shout revealed a giant, towering shield in the shadows.

The shield was huge and it blocked Kierans vision from the person that was behind it. The pressure coming from it was intense.

Within the blink of an eye, it almost reached Kieran in a rush.

Kieran instinctively tried to dodge the incoming shield, but before he could make any maneuvers, he felt another malicious intent come from behind him.

Another attacker had appeared, creating a deadly formation with the shield bearer in front of him.

Kieran stood still for a moment. If he wanted to dodge from both sides, he would have to head towards the garage door.

But would heading towards the door really allow him to dodge both men?

Although behind the door was the game lobby, unless he succeeded in reaching the room, Kieran would not be safe.

The situation before him was clear. The attackers wanted to force him into the garage because that was where they were planning on delivering the killing blow.

Taking that into account, the area around the garage door had to be the most dangerous one. Kieran would only be safe if he managed to enter the room.

Even if he was one step outside it, he would be exposed. It would be no different than him being out in the open.

After thorough consideration, Kieran realized he only had one option left. He had to face them head-on.

Kieran was certain that his decision was predictable. The attackers must have prepared some countermeasures.

They would not be expecting his strength though. That would be the wild card.

The shield produced a strong wind pressure, blowing hard against Kierans face and messing his hair. It made him squint his eyes.

Both men were less than a meter apart.

Although the shield was not sharp, based on its sheer dashing force, no sharp edge was needed.

The sheer brute force of it would be enough to turn its targets bones into dust.

At least that was what its wielder knew to be true. Therefore, when Kieran raised his foot towards the shield, the second attacker could not help but laugh.

This was way too easy!

Although their target had discovered the traps theyd set up for him, he was not that bright after all.

Still, nothing would have changed, even if Kieran had been smart. They had prepared tons of other traps, and every single one of them was capable of taking his petty life.

From the second attackers point of view, the traps did not matter anymore. Everything was about to come to an end.

With a malefic grin, the man tried to go over to his partner to celebrate the success of the mission. Suddenly, something shocked him into remaining still.

Kierans right foot had collided with the shield, yet Kieran was still standing there with one foot up. He had not been sent flying from the collision. He was standing on the spot, firmer than ever.

On the other hand, the tremendous shield had been stopped abruptly, as if it had crashed into a big wall. It had even let out an eerie screech.

The shield wielder had suffered a blast from the collision.

He had staggered away, the shield covering him exposing a tiny part of him.

Kierans sharp eyes seized the opportunity in an instant as he raised his gun for a shot.

Bang! Bang!

Blood splashed out from the attackers body.

[Shooting: Inflicts 150 Damage to Target HP, Armor Penetration Lvl 1 higher than Targets armor, 150 True Damage inflicted to Target, Target is Moderately Wounded]

[Shooting: Inflicts 200 Damage to Target HP, Armor Penetration Lvl 1 higher than Targets armor, 200 True Damage inflicted to Target, Target is Lethally Wounded]

The first shot had landed on the attackers thigh. The sudden pain made the man expose himself to a bigger extent, almost rendering his intimidating defense useless.

The second shot struck him on the waist.

Suddenly, a bright white whip latched onto Kierans right hand at air-breaking speed.

The second attacker had come to his senses and reacted to Kierans attack.

Kieran did not dodge or budge. The whip had bound his hand.

The attackers intention had been to stop Kieran from firing, but it was a futile effort.

The silenced [MI-02] appeared in Kierans left hand right before he fired the lethal shot.

Bang!

The trigger was pulled with a loud noise.

...

The second attacker had witnessed the death of his partner with his own eyes. Without a seconds delay, he turned around and ran as fast as lightning.

He was certain that, without his partner, he could not inflict effective damage on Kieran.

After only a few steps, a black chain latched onto him, binding him on the spot.

[Shadow Chain: Targets Strength failed authentication, Bound on the spot for one second, Target will suffer 15 Negative Corrosion Damage per second for three seconds]

One second was not long, but sometimes it was the difference between life and death.

With the shadow chains eerie touch on his body, the attackers face turned pale in an instant. He took out two items and immediately used one of them with a shout.

"Dont fire, Im telling you..."

Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

Repeated shots interrupted his words as a total of five bullets broke the Force Field Shield around him.

As soon as the Force Field Shield was gone, a shallow glow appeared all over his body, dissipating the [Shadow Chain]s latch in fractions of a second.

With his bindings gone, the attacker started running again, even faster than before. He could not resist being bound by the [Shadow Chain] once again though.

The [Shadow Chain] latched onto his legs this time. A loud gunshot followed.

Bang!

It was Kierans last shot at the attacker. It seemed like the man had run out of tricks to protect himself.

...

After killing the second attacker, Kieran rolled swiftly to the left.

Bang!

Just as he rolled away, a huge bullet was shot at the spot where he had just been standing.

There was a sniper!
