Chapter 466 – Explosives
TL: LifeisaJourney, xDh20
Clearly, the King Crocodile was evaluating the danger level between retreating or advancing. The pain from the fire was nothing compared to the wall of malice. It was only a slight hesitation, but the King Crocodile retreated back toward the flames. It looked as if it was preparing to run pass the wildfire and into the areas that had been burned down.
This was the time for Liu Gan to take action.
Liu Gan was hiding himself nearby when he charged forth and used his ability, Enhanced Crescent Blade all over the King Crocodile. As expected, only sparks were produced when the ability collided against the shield.
King Crocodile took notice of the prickling attacks. It recognized Liu Gan as the annoying mouse and unleashed a thundering roar before it charged at Liu Gan.
With the open field still a few hundred meters away before the cliff, the King Crocodile was still cautious as it charged toward Liu Gan. It was afraid of not being able to slow down with its momentum. It was consciously suppressing its speed.
Even if it was a few hundred meters, to the King Crocodile, it was only a few wide steps. As such, even with a careful state the King Crocodile and Liu Gan were closing on the junction quickly.
The King Crocodile stopped itself from attacking Liu Gan. It stood in place just a hundred meters away from the cliff, roaring angrily. It had definitely noticed the wall of malice behind Liu Gan.
“Dog shit! Come over here!” Liu Gan threw a large rock at the King Crocodile.
Triggered by the provocation, the King Crocodile took one step and swiped its paw at Liu Gan. Luckily, Liu Gan was prepared for this. He jumped backward toward the cliff, then held onto the dangling vines.
That last attack, if it connected then Liu Gan would’ve been smashed right into the wall of malice. His plan would’ve been all for naught.
It was still hard to say if the plan would succeed, but as long as there was a one percent chance, then Liu Gan would attempt it.
The King Crocodile’s sixth sense registered the danger as it cautiously advanced in small steps. It really hated the annoying mouse that had been pestering it. Now that it had the pest cornered, it just needed one more step to completely crush the rodent!
This was all going according to plan… Liu Gan’s plan, that is!
Liu Gan waited until he saw the Crocodile’s head peek above the cliff, then he snickered. Quickly, Liu Gan rappelled down to the beach.
Liu Gan had placed ten remote explosives. The plan that his group had spent half a month planning for was to save enough tokens for these explosives. Every member had to hunt down the normal crocodiles relentlessly for the tokens.
It was beneficial to the other members, since they could accumulate a lot of experience points, so they were quite zealous towards this hunt. With the help of the map on the PDA, he could gain up to a dozen tokens daily.
After half a month, Liu Gan was able to save up for a dozen remote explosives with the amount of tokens that they had collected. He ran to the shop to trade them all at once.
In real life, Xu Ji Chao was a mine proprietor, as well as a licensed explosives specialist. He was often out in the field opening up mines. His knowledge of explosives used to reshape the earth, was second to none.
Moments prior to the wildfire, these remote explosives were planted all along the edges of the cliff. Liu Gan had punched into the bedrock to produce holes wide enough for the explosives. This part of the project was led by the explosives specialist, Xu Ji Chao!
Finally, with the wildfire and Liu Gan’s provocation, the King Crocodile walked into the range of the explosives. It stood there hanging over the cliff, trying to extend its neck to reach Liu Gan.
Cold-blooded reptiles were really ferocious. Most of the time, it was idly waiting for prey to show up. Only when it was enraged, would it ignore its other senses.
Standing on the edge, the King Crocodile was moving carefully so that it wouldn’t touch the wall of malice. It had around ten meters before it made contact It only saw red from the rage it had built up from chasing after the little mouse. It was one step away from victory forever!
However… this time, the King Crocodile wasn’t going to be so lucky. It had fallen prey to Liu Gan’s trap!
“Team One, detonate!”
Liu Gan signaled the explosives team when he saw the timing was right. Team One all pressed their remote detonators simultaneously, and the rock beneath the King Crocodile’s feet started to come apart as the combination of massive weight and explosives did their thing, loudly. It couldn’t find its footing, and stumbled.
The King Crocodile sensed the danger, trying to turn back around and retreat to safety, but Liu Gan wasn’t going to let it escape so easily.
“Team Two, detonate!”
At Liu Gan’s order, the second team pressed the detonators. Once again, the foundation collapsed, and this time the King Crocodile took a misstep and fell backward towards the ground below.
The King Crocodile tried to latch onto whatever grip it could find. It tried to find leverage on the exploded rock, and get back up onto the cliff.
Liu Gan had considered that possibility, so he signaled Team Three to detonate their explosives. A few more explosions on the cliff loosened the King Crocodile’s grip, and its weight did the rest. Without anything secure to hold onto, it slid all the way down to the bottom.
There were only eight meters of safe space at its widest point. The King Crocodile’s body was thirty meters tall, and its head was a dozen meters long. Once it fell down, the majority of its body was in contact with the wall of malice!
