Chapter 187 *Hidden*

Previous ChapterNext Chapter


Madix and Duke who were on Planet Bahert had no idea that the information, regarding their discovery of the Tree of Might and its fruit that they had sent to Cooler, had set the entire North Area’s Forces astir. While, they were feeling ecstatic that they had performed “an outstanding service”, and were fantasizing of when they would receive extra credits from King Cooler.

King Cooler had just now sent back a message, which contained an order asking them to properly guard the Tree of Might. Thus, after receiving the instructions, they obviously didn’t dare be careless.

They knew that the information regarding the Tree of Might’s existence couldn’t remain bottled up forever, and it would certainly draw the attention of the surrounding starfields. The fruit was about to ripen, and if it gets stolen before King Cooler arrived, they’d to definitely shoulder the blame.

When Cooler’s angry appearance comes to their minds, they shuddered. If they weren’t careful, they would lose their lives, ah! Therefore, they remained in a state of combat readiness and carefully guarded the Tree of Might.

However, the Tree of Might was too huge, so they couldn’t possibly keep an eye on every nook and cranny of it. Fortunately, although Planet Bahert was suitable to live, there were no civilizations on the planet.

“The Tree of Might’s fruit hasn’t ripened yet; however, it should be close to ripening by the time King Cooler arrives. It seems that even the gods are aiding King Cooler!” Madix laughed, as he gazed at the unripened fruit.

“That’s true; when that time comes, King Cooler will become the ruler of the entire North Area; And he has even promised to reward us with some fruits when all of this is done.”

Duke licked his lips, and his pale, golden, erect beast-like pupils flickered. The numerous fruits on the Tree of Might were well within their reach; however, King Cooler’s might made them give up any ideas of taking even half a step forward—let alone overstep their boundaries.

Suddenly, the glass monocle-type detector beside their ears began making beeping sounds that attracted their attention.

Startled, Madix said with surprise: “Weird… Why did the energy detector suddenly start beeping? Could there still be other living beings on Planet Bahert?”

“Wait, let me see!”

Loading...

Duke tapped on the energy detector beside his ear. It beeped, and a series of data highlighting the energy source suddenly appeared on the lens.

“Wow. There really is a little mouse hidden on Planet Bahert,” After a while, Duke indifferently smiled. He pointed in a direction and informed: “The energy source has Battle Power close to 17,000, and is about 40 kilometers away from here.”

“Oh? Interesting. This Battle Power — It seems that we have an expert nearby!” Madix exclaimed with a hint of admiration: “It just so happens that my hands and feet have somewhat gotten rusty; let me finish off that little mouse.”

“As you wish.” Duke shrugged, letting Madix do whatever he wants. A pitiful 17,000 Battle Power doesn’t really interest him.

“Good!” Madix laughed heartily as soon as Duke assented. He nodded at Duke and soared into the sky, before shooting off in the direction of that hidden little mouse. In the blink of an eye, he had disappeared into the horizon.

Duke shook his head helplessly and found a comfortable position atop a huge branch of the Tree of Might; he proceeded to lay down and prepared to sleep. After all, Madix alone could easily handle that insignificant little thing possessing 17,000 Battle Power.

At the same time, more than 40 kilometers east of their position.

The enormous branches of the Tree of Might also blotted out the sun and sky here. The thick leaves resembed an enormous unfurled umbrella—blocking out the light.Sunlight couldn’t pass through, causing the down below to appear dark and cool.

However, the energy source on Madix’s energy detector flickered consecutively, which was very bright. Soon, Madix found his target in the middle of a huge branch.

“Ha ha ha! So it was hiding here. It didn’t take long for this uncle to find it!” After speaking, Madix streaked towards the target.

Madix’s harsh yell jolted the sleeping person on the tree branch awake. When the person saw Madix who had suddenly appeared, his complexion changed, and he inquired with vigilance:” Who are you? This is Uncle Turles’s territory. If you know your place, leave quickly!”

Turles had kept watch beside the Tree of Might for many years. However, seeing that when the fruit was about to ripened, a troublemaker suddenly had pop out, Turles expression was quite unsightly. However, after pondering over it carefully, he still left some leeway in his words.

“Oh, you can really talk big!” Madix was just about to taunt; however, after getting a clear look at the other person’s appearance, he was surprised: “Hey, you’re only a little fellow!”

“Bastard! You dare to look down on Uncle Turles?!” Turles was immediately enraged by Madix’s words. Initially, he had wanted to remain well-behaved, but his heart now burned like gunpowder; he was angry.

Madix looked on with interest as if watching a clown’s clumsy performance. Looking down from above, and the feeling of having everything within his group, always brought Madix an infinite amount of pleasure that left him feeling quite intoxicated.

“Aiya! You are unexpectedly a Saiyan. Weren’t all of them destroyed? It seems that a fish managed to slip through the net!” After noticing the brown tail behind Turles, Madix laughed out loud, “A Saiyan’s Battle Power can actually reach 17,000? Hehe, it seems that you have definitely eaten fruits from the Tree of Might.”

“Snort! This uncle isn’t the same as those Saiyans from Planet Vegeta. That useless guy, King Vegeta, this uncle has already surpassed him!” Turtles proclaimed with pride.

Turles was very pleased with himself. How could that trifling King Vegeta be his match?!

Fortunately for Turles, he wasn’t on Planet Vegeta when it was destroyed; thus, escaping the disaster. Afterward, Frieza deployed his subordinates to annihilate any surviving Saiyans, but due to various coincidences Turtles was able to escape through the net. He had then wandered over to the East Area.

At that time, as a Low-level Warrior, Turles wasn’t capable of protecting himself, so he acted extremely carefully, for fear of attracting anyone’s attention.

Until, one day, Turles came across fruit of the magical Tree of Might on a deserted planet. After eating the fruit, his strength began to skyrocket; initially, his Battle Power that wasn’t even 1,000, slowly rose to an astonishing 3,000.

This left him feeling ecstatic.

With a Battle Power of 3,000, Turles was close to the middle of Mid-level Warrior. He realized that, if he can get more of these fruits, he could become a High-level Warrior, or even a more powerful existence. At that time, wouldn’t success just come naturally?

Then he brought the seeds of the Tree of Might and carefully hidden himself on the relatively remote Planet Bahert, and planted the seeds. When the tree grew and bore fruits, Turles was able to consume more than a dozen ripe fruits, causing his Battle Power to soar to 17,000! He spectacularly transformed from an ordinary Mid-level Warrior to a Universe-level Warrior.

At this point, the dormant ambitions in his heart were ignited. Looking at the innumerable fruits about to ripen, Turles began to fantasize about the day when he’d become the emperor of the universe.

Unexpectedly, other aliens had now arrived at Planet Bahert, and Turles realized that things weren’t looking good.

“Kill him, so that the Tree of Might will remain a secret. As long as these fruits ripen, this uncle can dominate the universe!” Turles decided in his heart and immediately attacked first, hoping to gain the upper hand.

However, Turles had no idea that his opponent was a member of Cooler’s Armored Squadron. If his opponent could be selected by Coole, then he definitely couldn’t be someone ordinary. Madix’s Battle Power had reached 130,000; this was enough to make him look down on everything, including the Saiyan monkey making threatening gestures at him!

“Oh, you even dare to attack—” Madix looked astonished, as he swayed lightly, just dodging Turles’s every attack.

“Zeze, these attacks’ strength is really only 17,000. It isn’t even enough to scratch an itch on my body!” Madix sneered at Turles, feeling somewhat regretful. Suddenly, he extended his arm and caught Turles’s fist.

“What!”

Turles was shocked, and instinctively felt a sense of foreboding in his heart; the pores on his entire body couldn’t help but tighten.

Madix chuckled and exerted strength into his palm which held Turles fist. Kacha! The sound of bones shattering could be heard, and Turles gave a heartbreaking scream; he wobbled for a while and fell to his knees.

Madix haughtily looked down and sighed with disappointment.

This Saiyan couldn’t even land a hit on me. He had barely warmed up, yet the Saiyan monkey was already down. “Sigh, these Saiyans… useless wild monkeys! They even dared to presumptuously claim that they are a Fighting Race. Really too embarrassing.”

“Boy, obediently accept your death. Sir Madix has already gotten tired of playing with you.” Madix said without sparing Turles a glance and began to condense a crimson energy wave in his hand.

“No, No!” Turles’s pupils suddenly contracted.

He hadn’t accomplished his ambitions yet, and there were still numerous fruits on the Tree of Might that he hadn’t eaten. He couldn’t die like this! He raised his head and looked at the unripe fruits—his heart filled with unwillingness.
