seeing the sparks that were slowly forming at the tip of the young lady's fingers, jiang fei began to shut his eyes as he thought to himself, 'i'm done for!'

in jiang fei's mind, all his great plans had vanished into nothingness. ever since he acquired the mysterious ring, jiang fei was able to have whatever he wanted. although he participated in battles, all his opponents were handpicked by han tianyu or old man hai and therefore never posed any significant threat to him.
however, jiang fei had never thought that he would lose his life on his first solo mission. it was too late to feel regretful. as the lightning energy had fully formed in the young lady's hands, jiang fei had nothing else to do but await his death!
zap… the fully formed lighting energy started weakening and disappeared all of a sudden!
"eh?" while jiang fei was still in a dazed state, the young lady's body began shaking violently. thereafter, the bio-experimental girl who was floating one feet above the ground suddenly started falling downward.
wham… after landing on the ground, the young lady was unable to stabilize herself and immediately stumbled toward jiang fei. he subconsciously caught her in his arms!
"d*mn!" although catching a young lady who would otherwise fall was jiang fei's natural and instinctive reaction, he had the intention to let her go when he realized the person in his arms was a level 5 metahuman who tried to kill him not too long ago!
jiang fei's heart was thumping wildly as he looked at the dangerous young lady in his arms who had held her eyes shut. right then, she started transforming!
the bony spur behind the young lady's back began retracting and disappeared altogether after a moment. even the scales on her body began fading away!
the young lady was not wearing any clothes. the private parts of her body were initially covered by her scales. now that the scales faded away, she appeared completely naked in jiang fei's embrace!
"ugh…" the young lady moaned softly as she slowly opened her eyes.
this time, what jiang fei saw was no longer her frightening and fully white eyes, but instead a pair of sky-blue and dazzling eyes!
she had a full head of golden hair, a pair of sparkly blue eyes, and beautifully intricate facial features. these were the ideal standards of western beauty for any female figure. most importantly, jiang fei knew who this young lady was!
"jenny, how could it be you?" jiang fei asked as he took off his coat and put it on the young lady so that she would not be exposed.
the young lady in jiang fei's arms was none other than flash jenny, human torch shroder's younger sister!
"who are you?" jenny asked confusedly as she stared at jiang fei with her big and clear blue eyes. she did not look like she was pretending to be dumb.
"jenny, don't you recognize me?" jiang fei asked curiously.
"jenny? is that my name you are calling? do you know who i am?" jenny shook her head and looked utterly lost.
"0541, do you know what is going on?" jiang fei had no other choice but to ask 0541 for help as jenny seemed like she could not answer any of his questions.
"this must have been a memory loss caused by the bio-modification!" 0541 answered.
"is there any way for us to recover her memory?" jiang fei asked.
"that would depend on the injuries suffered by her brain. if you would merely like to find out about the root cause of the problem, i believe the main control room should have the necessary records." 0541 made it clear that it would not be difficult for jiang fei to find out what had happened. however, it would be difficult for jiang fei to try to recover jenny's memory!
"pieces of sh*t. how dare these japanese people capture metahumans from the major grain-exporting country to experiment with!" jiang fei furrowed his brows as he spoke. he thought the japanese people had always been extremely obedient in front of their northern american folks.
"hehe, these things are non-issues if nobody found out about them," 0541 answered.
"sigh." jiang fei sighed in agreement with 0541. as long as nobody knew what was being done, the people from the major rice-exporting country would not make a hassle out of the disappearance of a low-rank metahuman.
besides, if the japanese were to succeed in their research to create an army of level 5 metahumans, they would be able to take over not only asia but the entire world.
of course, controlling level 5 metahumans was not an easy feat. jenny was a prime example. although she possessed level 5 capabilities, she was completely uncontrollable and even ended up killing all the japanese people in the experimental laboratory. if not for her sudden loss of power, jiang fei would have been killed along with the rest of the japanese!
"how do you feel now?" jiang fei asked jenny who was still lying in his arms.
"i feel completely powerless…" jenny said. as she had lost nearly all of her memory, jenny was like a blank piece of paper now. therefore, she was unaware of the inappropriate state of her lying naked in a man's arms.
"captain, i suggest you kill her right now while you have the chance!" 0541's voice could be heard in jiang fei's mind.
"i might be able to do that if she were someone else. however, jenny is my friend. how could i kill her?" jiang fei thought as he frowned.
"thank you for not killing me!" right then, jenny suddenly revealed an evil smile on her face as she spoke.
"what?!" jiang fei was surprised by jenny's words. as he was communicating with 0541 through their thoughts, he did not expect other people to be able to eavesdrop on their conversation.
when jiang fei turned to look at jenny, he realized that her eyes had turned fully white again despite her still lying in his arms!
"her soul energy is too strong…" 0541 said bitterly.
"it seems like you really did know who i once was!" jenny stood up and away from jiang fei's embrace. although her bony spurs did not reappear, it was obvious that the young lady had regained her strength. moreover, the jenny who had recovered her strength had a very different persona and attitude from the young lady with memory loss just a moment ago.
"d*mn…" jiang fei felt extremely terrified. if he did hold any bad intention earlier, he might have turned into ashes by now!
"as for you, i don't know who you are, but i will let you off the hook this time for his sake. if you have any intention to kill me again, i will not forgive you!" jenny warned 0541.
"erm… jenny, do you remember anything from the past?" jiang fei tried to change the topic of conversation.
"what's the point of remembering? jenny is already dead! i am phoenix!" jenny announced her new name proudly.
"what do you plan to do next?" jiang fei asked.
"hehe, i would naturally like to find some old acquaintances to reminisce the past," phoenix said coldly.
"alright then. i wish you all the best!" jiang fei nodded. he understood that the current phoenix was no longer the young and naïve jenny he had known in the past.
"before i leave, i have a small gift for you!" phoenix said as she grabbed jiang fei's arm and scratched at his skin with two of her fingers. two scarred lines appeared on his arm.
tsssk… jiang fei sucked in a breath of cold air. although jenny's scratches did not pierce through his skin, jiang fei still felt the sting when she scratched at his arm.
"of these two scratch lines, one is to thank you for not killing me, while the other is to thank you for putting these clothes on me! if you ever find yourself in trouble, just tear one of these open and i will come and help you," phoenix said. as soon as she finished her sentence, phoenix disappeared into thin air right before jiang fei's eyes!
