1076 Badly Wounded Han Tianyu I
Based on 0542's location, Jiang Fei took the lead with Ariel and Isabella following closely, and the rest of the martial artists. It was hard trekking through the dense forest but that did not matter since 0542 had discovered a group of enemies heading towards them in less than 5 minutes.

"Captain, enemy Supreme Androids detected. Detecting… 32 of them!"
"Good! It's been a while since I've fought with everything I've got!"
Jiang Fei unsheathed the Chengying sword and infused Wind Power Origin Force into his legs, granting him a burst of supersonic speed, akin to that of a cannon.
"Protect darling!" both Isabella and Ariel cried out at the same time. The two did not engage in the fight. They were merely intercepting anything that was lethal to Jiang Fei, all while they were on extreme alert.
As soon as Jiang Fei showed his face to the androids, they responded quickly by firing their energy-based firearms.
Jiang Fei's speed was too quick for the Androids. Before the first round could be fired, Jiang Fei had already taken down one Android with one swift slash. Unfortunately, Jiang Fei's current fighting capability was still at the Pinnacle of Level 4. Fortunately, the enemies were nowhere close to his power level, allowing him to take down as many as he could effortlessly. With the power of Origin Force infused into the blade, the Chengying Sword's sharpness was unparalleled. In less than 30 seconds, Jiang Fei had taken down all 32 Androids without sustaining any damage.
"Move on!" Jiang Fei roared to call the rest of the martial artists that had only just arrived at the scene of the fight.
Jiang Fei had only just eliminated the weakest group of androids that were moving in to surround the martial artists. Technically speaking, as long as the martial artists behind Jiang Fei could keep up with his speed, they could break past the surrounding parameters.
"Captain. I have found traces if high-energy spikes directly ahead. A battle is happening right now," said 0542 after 10 minutes.
Jiang Fei frowned immediately and grunted. He turned to the martial artists behind him and encouraged them to move faster. After a short distance, Jiang Fei could feel the soft tremors on the ground. The sound of explosions was faint but clear.
"What's happening?" Jiang Fei asked 0542.
"There is a huge battle between 23 martial artists and 874 Androids."
"Sheesh! Just how much money is the military bleeding away?" Jiang Fei complained as he moved on.
To surround and capture less than a hundred members of the alliance, the military had actually deployed over 4,000 Androids. It was either they had too much to spare or they had every intention to kill every martial artist—sending out as many Androids as they could to guarantee the result. On the one hand, it also spoke volumes on the improvement of Android production. At this point, Jiang Fei could tell that the Androids right now were different than the ones that he had met in Japan. Although they were not as strong as they were supposed to be, they were all at the Beginning stage of Level 4. A mass-produced Android army, with its weakest soldier being at the beginner stage of Level 4!
The only reason these Androids could be categorized as Level 4 was contentious since it was solely based on their firepower. In a fair fight, no Level 4 Android could defeat a Level 4 martial artist. There was even a chance that a Level 3 fighter could defeat a Level 4 Android! One way to change this outcome was to play the number's game—to overwhelm the martial artists with an army of unfaltering mechanical soldiers. A full-scale assault on the Level 4 martial artists would be effective unless the martial artists could figure out a way to bottleneck them.
"How are the martial artists holding up?" Jiang Fei asked.
"I have detected 12 deceased bodies. All other surviving members are sustaining heavy to minor injuries."
Jiang Fei nodded. Although they were tough, it was hard to face an army ten times the size of theirs. Having casualties was only natural and those that were still on their feet were the strongest amongst them.
When Jiang Fei had reached viewing distance, he was surprised with a scene of utter depression. The sky was lit up by sparks of projectiles, fired by the Androids and landing on the martial artists. Most of their attacks were aimed poorly, giving the martial artists a good chance to dodge and deflect them with their Qi armor. The Level 4 fighters were doing fine but many Level 3 and Level 2 fighters were suffering greatly. If they could survive this round, their avoidability training would have been improved with flying colors, if they even had those to begin with.
"Student Wang! Take the rest of the students and leave this place! I shall remain here to buy you some time!" said a Level 4 master.
"No! Master! I will not leave! If this is where I die, I shall fight with honor!" said the man who was called Wang.
"Enough! This is an order from your sect leader! I order you to retreat with the rest of the students! I don't care what it takes, you must bring Mr. Han out of this mess!" cried the Level 4 master whilst dodging and deflecting incoming projectiles from the enemy.
Disgruntled, Wang turned away with tears rolling down his cheek. He dragged one of the fallen students that was still alive and led the others further back.
Jiang Fei gasped with relief when he heard the conversation between the two. Han Tianyu was there and he was still alive!
"Ariel, destroy them all!" Jiang Fei ordered. Even though he was strong and he could kill all Level 4 Androids at a rapid speed, having Ariel to do it was far more efficient.
"Sure thing," Ariel nodded and said. She took off into the sky and into the clouds. With a wave of her hands, she gathered static electricity that was in the air and gathered them all into her hands. The sky crackled with thunder and when the Androids had noticed her presence, it was too late. Ariel unleashed an array of lightning that struck all the Androids indiscriminately. No matter where they tried to run, they could never escape the speed of lightning. Not before long, all 800 Androids were zapped and destroyed.
"Are you alright?" Jiang Fei prompted when he finally arrived with the injured student Wang.
"You… Are you our reinforcements? Are we safe?" said the man, startled and shocked.
The others that were still sane took notice of the destruction of the Androids and immediately cheered. It spread out quickly and everyone could finally draw in a breath of relief.
"Calm down. There might be more of them coming. Help the injured. Where is Han Tianyu!" Jiang Fei shouted the name louder.
"Here!" cried a female fighter, waving her arms high to attract Jiang Fei's attention.
Han Tianyu was currently unconscious. Most importantly, the man had lost both of his legs. Fortunately, whoever treated Han Tianyu had saved his life. The bleeding was not stopped but merely slowed down with tight bandages on the severed limb.
"Hold him up," said Jiang Fei. He then pretended to slip his hand inside his pocket, which was a ruse to materialize two Grand Restore Pills from the ring. The pills were a hyper condensed version of healing potions. It could not restore Han Tianyu's legs but it could at least completely stop the bleeding.
After Han Tianyu was force-fed with the pills, his pale complexion was replaced with a normal one. In less than a minute, Han Tianyu was rudely awoken by Jiang Fei.
"Urgh… My leg… My leg is gone…" he grunted when he saw his legs were missing.
Jiang Fei rolled his eyes.
"I'll repair your legs when this is over. Most importantly, tell me what happened here!"
Healing Han Tianyu's legs was nothing but a simple task with the Medical Bay. Right then, he needed to know what had happened in order to tackle the problem.
