Super Detective in the Fictional World - Chapter 780
Chapter 780: One of the Biggest Trump Cards
Luke walked up to the second floor of the building. It was a spacious, open-plan industrial loft.
He walked to an armchair in a corner and looked at the various books and notes scattered around it. After flipping through them for a moment, he had a rough idea about what was going on.
From the books and notes that Johnny Blaze was reading, it seemed that he was looking for all sorts of information on demons, including religious knowledge, psychology, and modern scientific analyses.
Based on the notes, he clearly hadn’t figured out much.
After checking Johnny Blaze’s place, Luke left a surveillance camera behind and left.
The results of the search just now basically confirmed that there was nothing wrong with Johnny.
There weren’t any videos, photos, or text records of him killing or injuring people. He was just a motorcycle stuntman who liked to court death.
If he really wanted to kill someone, the most likely target was himself.
Anyone who was into high-risk extreme sports would be suspected of having a death wish.
Luke found a 24-hour donut store and ordered four boxes of donuts.
Blueberry cheesecake, pumpkin, applesauce, chocolate peanut butter, and maple cream were just some of the common flavors.
There were also special donuts like tiramisu, hibiscus ginger and mocha chocolate.
Just like that, Luke sat in a corner and pondered his gains from tonight.
Firstly, he had finally tested the power of one of his biggest trump cards on a few Hell demons.
On the list of abilities, a secondary skill had appeared behind Elementary Penetration (special mental class).
Elementary Annihilation: Prerequisites: Elementary Penetration and Elementary Telekinesis.
This was the second Elementary ability he had developed after Elementary Telekinesis.
Similar to Elementary Telekinesis, which was a combination of Curve Shooting and Mental Communication, Elementary Annihilation was a combination of Elementary Penetration and Elementary Telekinesis.
Elementary Penetration (special mental class) came from Mr. Smith, the hitman who killed Henry Elsworth.
Thinking back, Luke felt that the hundreds of thousands of dollars he had given Mr. Smith back then was too little.
If he had the chance, Luke really wouldn’t mind giving Mr. Smith another large sum of money for the hitman to live without worries for the rest of his life.
But in just a few days, this down and out middle-aged hitman had earned a hot “special therapist,” Miss Donna, as his wife. He also had Oliver, the baby whom he had saved, as his son, and he had even kidnapped the German Shepherd which belonged to the CEO of Hammerson Defense.
His life was perfect.
Mr. Smith’s Elementary Penetration was a strange ability that could turn a carrot into a weapon to stab a person to death.
Luke still didn’t know the exact principle behind it, but the exact function was very simple.
For one short moment, when he concentrated on an item, he could give it terrifying penetrative power.
Mr. Smith had never truly utilized this ability to its fullest.
Maybe it was because he didn’t know how to develop it, or maybe he wasn’t mentally strong enough, so he could only use things like carrots to stab people.
But Mr. Smith was too good at shooting, and most of the time, he didn’t need to use this ability.
With Elementary Penetration and more than 20 Mental Strength, Luke would practice and analyze the ability almost every day.
The system had automatically slapped on the “special mental class” label; Luke had never asked for it.
The system wouldn’t even classify most people’s own mother tongue as a “basic” ability, much less use the “special” label.
From this, Luke could tell that this ability had passed the system’s evaluation, and was absolutely very “special.”
And that was indeed the case.
Luke had harassed the system in every way possible after developing Elementary Telekinesis.
Daddy System finally added the suffix “mental class” to it.
This allowed Luke to make a connection between Elementary Telekinesis and Elementary Penetration.
After a lot of experiments, Luke finally applied Elementary Penetration to Curve Shooting.
That was because Curve Shooting employed the initial beginnings of telekinesis, and guns were the weapons which Luke most commonly used, so they were the easiest to experiment with.
The bullet from an ordinary pistol enhanced by Elementary Penetration could pierce through a bulletproof panel that could withstand a 7.62mm rifle bullet, which surprised and delighted Luke.
Wasn’t this simply an anti-armor skill?
After repeated tests, he was even more certain that the force of penetration depended on the ability itself.
For example, if the force of a pistol bullet was 1 and the force of Elementary Penetration was 10, the combination of the two would be 11.
If the force of a rifle bullet was 5, with Elementary Penetration, it would be 15.
Of course, this wasn’t an accurate explanation.
Given that the theory behind Elementary Penetration wasn’t clear yet, there were often odd deviations in the tests.
For example, Luke had fired a Glock once, and the experimental data showed that it had a ridiculously high penetrative force, which was even more outrageous than when he used a M500.
But generally speaking, Elementary Penetration gave a minimum added value, and bullets were just the beginning.
Luke had created this ability, but had basically never used it in public.
Because it wasn’t necessary.
He didn’t have to shoot through the enemy’s bulletproof vests with his pistol, nor did he have to shoot through an armored car with his rifle.
He kept this ability hidden as a trump card.
And Elementary Penetration was just his first trump card.
After creating this “anti-armor buff spell,” Luke had a clearer understanding of Elementary Telekinesis and Elementary Penetration.
After working his way backward and multiple experiments, he reverse-engineered Elementary Telekinesis and successfully applied it to Elementary Penetration.
So far, Luke had officially taken out one of his biggest trump cards, “Elementary Annihilation.”
The anti-armor buff spell gave bullets a penetrative effect. Elementary Annihilation used telekinesis and part of Elementary Penetration.
The effect of the anti-armor buff spell only lasted for a short moment, and didn’t require much mental strength on Luke’s part.
Elementary Annihilation, on the other hand, required him to have perfect command of this special mental class.
It could cut its opponents like a sharp blade, or protect them like armor, but the latter was much more difficult to do.
Endurance and control were the biggest features of Elementary Annihilation.
It was also the “killer weapon” which Luke had used to intimidate the alien dog head.
Gold Nugget basically disregarded ordinary physical attacks, but the first time it tried to combine with Luke, it was blown out of Luke’s body by Elementary Annihilation, which had yet to fully take shape.
