Old Demon Nightmare spoke in disdain, “We’re all ghosts. Are ghosts afraid of ghosts? Any threat is useless on me so you’re better off doing something meaningful. What should I assign you to do? Hmm. Go to the Northsea Army Corps base and steal an aircraft.”
‘Steal an aircraft?’ For some unknown reason, Tang Wulin felt slightly relieved upon receiving the order because his situation was still far better than his comrades. At least it was a task that would not cause him to suffer a mental breakdown.
“Sure. But, I don’t know how to fly an aircraft,” Tang Wulin spoke gravely.
Old Demon Nightmare spoke, “That’s easy! I’ll teach you!”
“You’ll teach me?” Tang Wulin was stunned that an old demon who had been on an island for thousands of years knew how to fly an aircraft.
Old Demon Nightmare spoke, “You shouldn’t doubt my ability, much less my intelligence. Oh, there are few things that excite us. Come, I’ll teach you how to fly an aircraft. You can then steal me an aircraft.”
Tang Wulin had no choice. Twenty minutes later, he saw the Skywing F-17. The aircraft which had its canopy removed flew by them.
Tang Wulin suddenly realized a problem as he saw the soul airplane. He could not help asking, “Old Demon Nightmare, even if I were to learn how to fly an aircraft over to the island, there’s no way I can fly two airplanes here!”
Old Demon Nightmare replied in a logical manner, “Who says you’re going to fly two airplanes. I’ll be sending you over, then you fly the aircraft here by yourself. Whichever way you come to Devil Island will be the way you go to the Northsea Army Corps base.”
“Huh?” Tang Wulin was staring at him in bewilderment. How did he come to Devil Island? He did an airborne landing! Was he going to perform an airborne landing at the Northsea Army Corps base?
Did the Northsea Army Corps not have all sorts of radar equipment? He would be discovered at once if he were to go back now. How was it good for him?
“Don’t be startled. Figure out a way yourself. You’re capable of stealing an aircraft and fled the Northsea Army Corps base. Don’t tell me you can’t figure out a way a second time. Alright, board the aircraft.”
Old Demon Nightmare already took the lead to walk to the front of the aircraft as he was saying that. He waved his hand once and conjured a black airstair that was connected to the cockpit. Tang Wulin did not sense any soul power fluctuation from Nightmare’s body, yet it appeared everything was created naturally.
Old Demon Nightmare took the lead to walk up the stairs while Tang Wulin took the copilot’s seat.
“I’ll first explain briefly, then I’ll guide you to fly an aircraft.” A sense of evil crossed Old Demon Nightmare’s mind as he flashed a sinister smile. He explained briefly the principle of flight and also the basic functions of all the buttons in the cockpit.
Tang Wulin was skilled in operating a mecha. Operating a mecha was actually more complicated than flying a soul airplane. One needed to not only control all sorts of buttons but also mobilize the mecha through different physical movements at the same time. It was apparent that flying an aircraft was not as difficult as one would only need to operate the buttons and drive control.
Tang Wulin learned diligently, and he soon got the hang of it.
“Can you remember?” Old Demon asked.
Tang Wulin nodded. “I can remember the basics now.”
“Very well then. I’ll let you experience it now!” Old Demon Nightmare waved his hand once as he was speaking. A pile of rocks in disarray that was initially in front of the aircraft suddenly transformed into a light band as dark as ink which extended outward into the distance turning into a runway.
Old Demon Nightmare gave a youthful cheer as he rapidly ignited the Skywing F-17. He operated the control buttons in the aircraft with precision. He pulled the cyclic control as the Skywing slowly cruised forward and began to pick up speed gradually.
Tang Wulin buckled his seatbelt immediately as an ominous feeling appeared the next moment.
The turbine ejector on the back of the Skywing burst out with orange-red flames as it thrust the aircraft abruptly down the runway. The tremendous momentum pinned Tang Wulin firmly against the seat. In the next moment, the Skywing had taken off into the skies. The take-off was many times faster than the one executed by Xie Xie. It seemed like it was not even halfway down the runway when it took off.
Old Demon Nightmare gave an odd piercing laugh. He pulled the cyclic control all the way as the Skywing shot straight up into the sky. It then deviated from its initial course and executed a roll-off-the-top maneuver.
Tang Wulin felt overcome with dizziness and confusion. He could not tell which way was up and which way was down at the moment.
Soon after, he saw Old Demon Nightmare’s hands moved rhythmically on the control panel in an almost unreal manner. Then, the Skywing immediately rolled sideways after a turn in the sky. It rolled continuously as if it was attempting to toss out Tang Wulin’s internal organs with violent lashings and keeping him dizzy simultaneously. The aircraft was performing aerobatics in the skies.
“You saw that, right? That’s the consequence of not following instructions. You can imagine the result when the mist is released.”
Xie Xie was staring at Old Demon Nightmare in bewilderment. He wished he could tear this fellow into pieces, especially when he witnessed the scene where Tang Wulin lay next to Yuanen Yehui in their unconscious states. Extreme fear made him shiver uncontrollably.
“You, you can’t do this. I’ll do anything you want me to…”
An evil expression was revealed on Old Demon Nightmare’s face. “Very simple. Steal an aircraft for me. How to fly an aircraft? I’ll teach you. I saw your good-for-nothing look when you were captured by six aircraft in the air when you came. You’re simply the worst of the lot.”
“You!” Stargod Sword shimmered with dazzling radiance in Ye Xinglan’s hand. It was not her first time being shown the scene by Old Demon Nightmare. As she helplessly watched the scene unfold, her cheeks turned red while her body shivered involuntarily.
“This is just an illusion you created. I don’t believe it! Moreover, you placed Wulin and Lizhi together. What’s going to happen between them anyway? Even if you were to use the drug on them, they still won’t…”
Old Demon Nightmare sniggered and spoke, “Really? Don’t you know that between a man and another man, they can actually…”
“Stop talking. I agree to…”
“Ugh…” Tang Wulin got down on one knee and vomited for more than ten minutes. His head was still spinning despite his current situation, while his stomach was tossing and turning like a turbulent river.
He had never felt this sick before, even when he broke through the Golden Dragon King Seal. Old Demon Nightmare had taken him on a ride for a whole hour. During that time, he was shown all the operations and functions of the Skywing. Tang Wulin had experienced everything an aircraft was capable of executing.
Despite having the physical strength that exceeded ordinary people, he still could not withstand the terrifying high speed lashings and turnings of the aircraft’s maneuvers.
Old Demon Nightmare stood not far away from him. “Good-for-nothing. Look at your useless self. I’m still fine despite being an old man. Look at you now. Stand up quick. Let’s go again! You’ve already rested for too long. I’m going to release some poison mist for your comrades if you don’t stand up now.”
This happened three more times.
Strength seemed to have drained away from Tang Wulin. He felt muddled and his entire body seemed to be falling apart. His body felt weak and limp that he could not even exert any strength. His face was pale as a ghost. He did not feel like vomiting because there was nothing in his stomach for him to vomit anymore.
Old Demon Nightmare picked him up from the aircraft and tossed him onto the ground. He stretched his body as he muttered to himself with a smile on his face, “It’s been so long since I’ve such depraved feelings. Why do I feel so happy looking at you in pain? Do you think I have a mental problem?”
