"Goku's friend? Oh, so it is Yajirobe. This guy is extremely lucky to be able to live till now." 18 was beaming. She licked her lips and grinned like a demon.
Yajirobe was first startled and quickly awoke from his drunken stupor after seeing the suddenly appearing Androids, but then, he laughed. Suddenly, he was not afraid of the past anymore.
Coming across the Androids, he knew that he could no longer escape, "Running away for so long, I've gotten tired. I really don't want to escape anymore." There were tears in his eyes, and lumps had almost formed in his disheveled and split hair due to filth. Yajirobe suddenly found that he had unexpectedly been in such a bad condition for so long.
"You have destroyed Earth to such an extent… are you very happy?" Yajirobe said as he threw down the alcohol bottle.
The glass shattered and alcohol splashed on the ground. A cold light beam flashed by and soared like a lightning ray as Yajirobe pulled out the large sword at his waist and slashed at 18.
A finger collided with the sword…
Yajirobe's attack was blocked.
18 casually extended two of her fingers, with an expression which looked like a smile and yet not a smile, and she playfully caught Yajirobe's sword which was quickly and violently chopping down between her two fingers; her frosty face emitted a chill. She coldly smiled, and her fingers suddenly exerted force, causing Yajirobe to uncontrollably fly away. He landed on the ground, sliding for more than a dozen meters before stopping. 18 flung her arm and coldly walked forward.
Yajirobe got up from the ground in a sorry state, supporting his body with the large sword. Heavily drinking, hiding, and self-intoxication, for the past few years, had hollowed out his body. As he had completely lost his root of a martial artist, his wasted body was no longer full of vitality like when he was young.
However, he would not shamelessly think that he was still a martial artist. A real martial artist would have bravely stepped forward to fight against the enemy when Earth was facing a crisis. Even if they died in battle, they would feel honored. He doesn't have the qualifications and had never thought of himself as a martial artist.
At this time, he was not facing the Androids as a martial artist, but as a simple earthling who tortured by reality, chose to escape but still failed in the end.
"Hehe, it really hurts!" Yajirobe grinned, his body trembling.
Android 17 indifferently looked at Yajirobe, like he was looking at an ant, and said to Android 18, "18, quickly take care of this guy." 17 was not interested in wasting time on Yajirobe, who he deemed as trash.
"OK," Android 18 answered without turning around. She licked her lips, revealing a lovely and cruel smile.
She lifted her fair-skinned arm up, and her fingers moved like they were stirring the transparent surface of the water. Suddenly, a bewitching halo slowly spread out everywhere in front of her, and orange-colored energy balls, which were small like shelled peanuts, gathered like a nest of countless wasps.
The energy balls were small, but their bewitching halo was emitting a terrifying aura.
Xiu! Xiu! Xiu!
The tiny and sparkling orange-colored energy balls swiftly shot out like bullets, the long and thin fire serpent ripped through the sky, leaving behind a straight and blurry trail. Numerous light dots attacked Yajirobe.
At this moment, Yajirobe's view was shrouded by scintillating and multi-colored light dots. Even though a crisis was at hand, Yajirobe was feeling at ease like never before, and the corners of his mouth were slightly raised. He was unexpectedly smiling. Finally, he doesn't have to run away anymore. He shouldn't have been alive for more than a decade.
Now, I can finally leave this world. Yajirobe laughed at himself.
The tiny light dots penetrated Yajirobe's body, splashing blood on the ground. Yajirobe's obese body fell down, causing yellow sand to fly up…
Looking at Yajirobe's body which was covered with bullet-sized holes, there was still a smile hanging on Android 18's face; the smile was especially dazzling. Android 17 looked to be in a bad mood as he walked over and patted Android 18's shoulder as he said, "Let's leave this town. I want to destroy some more cities."
"Okay!" 18 smiled, raised her hand and lightly stroked her beautiful golden hair.
But then, two powerful aura's descended from the sky, bringing a slight peculiarity to the city that had already been transformed into ruins.
"Android 17 and 18, your time is up!" An orange-red figure appeared in front of the Androids. It was Gohan who was looking at them in anger.
Along the way, Android 17 and 18 destroyed hundreds of towns, and the death toll was more than a million! To earthlings whose total population had already dwindled too much, such losses could be described as painful.
Suddenly, Gohan got a clear look at the face of the person on the ground who had died tragically. His pupils slightly shrunk, and his expression became even more ugly.
"Yajirobe…" Gohan softly muttered. He was not very familiar with Yajirobe and had only seen him a few times when he was a child. However, Yajirobe was somewhat of a friend with his father, Goku. To think that he was also killed by the Androids.
Gohan angrily roared, and in a flash, he transformed into a Super Saiyan. His golden hair fluttered in the billowing air, and his green pupils were dark.
"It's that kid, Gohan, and that Golden Warrior from before. Humph! So, you really are together! Well, well… You have saved me the trouble of looking for both of you by delivering yourself to me," 17's suddenly revealed a smile on his cold face.
"Gohan, I will let you deal with 17!" Xiaya also noticed Yajirobe who had died, and he said to Gohan, while his sights turned towards Android 18.
"OK!" Gohan nodded, and then his aura locked onto Android 17, his eyes firmly fixed on him.
"Hahaha, you loser want to defeat me just by relying on yourself? Ridiculous! Last time you were lucky enough to save yourself, but you didn't hide, instead, you took the initiative to come to me. Saiyan, you are still talking big! You are really unaware of your current situation!" 17's voice was gloomy, his heart was like a burning ball of fire, ready to explode at any moment.
"The current me is different from the past. I will definitely defeat you today." Gohan's cold voice sounded.
"Good, good, good!" 17 was not angry, instead, he chuckled; however, a frigid light flashed in his eyes that made one tremble.
Bang! Like the sound of thunder.
Suddenly, a tremendous force caused the ground to sink, causing sand to splash out. Android 17's short body launched an attack towards Gohan, and an earth-shatteringly powerful might instantly surge out. Android 17 sneered and condensed a red circle of light at the top of his fist.
He was no longer in the mood to let Gohan live so as to toy around with him like he used to, and was just bent on killing him with one move!
Facing Android 17's astonishing attack, Gohan was calm, his arms protecting in front of his chest.
Gohan forcibly took on Android 17's fierce attack. The ground violently trembled, and cracks appeared on it; however, his body did not move even an inch.
"What!" Startled, 17's body jumped a dozen meters out of conditioned reflex.
Gohan lightly laughed. Through the collision just now, he was confident. Comparing strength, his 800 million Battle Power was already above Android 17. The only regret was that the Super Saiyan eruption was brief, and couldn't last long in a fight while the Androids have infinite stamina.
"How is it possible that your strength has grown so much overnight!"
Android 17 exclaimed with an incredulous look on his face, and his heart sank.
This damn Golden Warrior, he has unexpectedly concealed it for so long! Android 17 cried in this heart. If he had known earlier, he would have eradicated Gohan as soon as possible before. Now, he had allowed the enemy to grow stronger, inviting a calamity.
Chapter 277 Yajirobe dies
"As I said, today you will meet your doom, Androids!" Gohan walked over, the golden aura burning even more vigorously. Facing this terrifying aura, Android 17 could not help but take a few steps back.
"Nonsense!" Roaring in an icy voice, Android 17 and Gohan started fighting again.
In an instant, the sky and land turned into their battlefield.
Two streaks of light, that couldn't even be seen clearly, kept dancing everywhere in the sky and on the ground, colliding nonstop. Numerous shining electric flowers flashed in midair, blossoming into a beautiful scene of purple and red, and just like a budding flower, they suddenly bloomed at the right time.
Android 17 and Gohan were fighting fiercely, but Gohan's Battle Power was already more than Android 17's Battle Power. Gohan had a comparative advantage from the very beginning, but this little bit of advantage couldn't be maintained for a long time.
"I have to defeat him quickly!" Gohan's heart was like a mirror as he made up his mind to seize the initiative no matter the cost. Hence, he roared; this roar seemed to vent the anger which had been pent-up for the past dozens of years. Super Saiyan is a transformation that was greatly affected by emotions. The more anger he has in his heart, the more strength he could erupt with.
Quickly, Gohan's aura once again increased drastically, and instantly, he began to suppress Android 17.
Soon, Android 17 was beaten black and blue. Even though he has unlimited stamina and energy, the injuries on his body weren't able to recover like Majin Buu.
"If I can inflict a serious injury on him, it will become more beneficial for me later on in the fight!" Gohan's green eyes shone and he began to implement this tactic in destroying Android 17's body.
"Damn it, bastard!" Android 17 yelled in anger. Gohan was fiercely attacking from the start which has put him on the defensive. When he finally reacted, he had already lost the initiative. The battles in Dragon Ball World were fast and fierce like lightning. So, after his rhythm got disturbed, he could only take the beatings.
Looking on from below, Android 18 was stupefied. Android 17, her brother, was actually being suppressed by Gohan. She had never expected this result.
"Gohan… when did he become so powerful?" 18 muttered to herself as a hint of fear flashed in her eyes.
Yes, she was a little scared. This was an emotion that they, Androids, had never felt since they woke up.
"Oh, no! If even 17 is not Gohan's match, then I would be even worse off." Anxious, she wanted to go and help him out, but Xiaya was firmly barring her path, so she didn't dare to move.
"Gohan has taken control of the rhythm of the battlefield. There is no suspense in this battle."
Super Saiyans are strongest when they erupt out. Once they took the initiative to harm the enemy, as long as they do not make a fatal mistake, the outcome of the battle would already be decided. Killing Android 17 was only a matter of time. However, a new variable could crop up. So, the first decision Xiaya made was to attack Android 18 who was in front of him.
"Beautiful woman, why are you evil?" Xiaya looked at Android 18 and sighed.
Such a beautiful girl, but she was completely a demon. He quite liked Android 18 of the original work, but it was a pity that the Androids in this world couldn't arouse even a little bit of good feelings in him.
An aura, which was much stronger than Gohan's, swept out like huge tidal waves. Gohan's aura was like the light of a firefly while Xiaya's aura was like a rising sun and it was like a lake compared to his which was like a vast ocean. Before his extremely frightening strength, even if Android 18 was not able to sense Ki, she could still feel her soul shudder.
The pressure emitted by the energy of 2.4 billion Battle Power was like Mount Tai pressing down, making breathing impossible.
"So powerful!" Android 18's countenance turned pale, her pretty face revealing a panic-stricken look. She could not help but step back.
"Don't come over!" At this time, where does she still have that extremely arrogant attitude of her from before! She was completely like a frightened little girl with a terrified look on her face.
"Unfortunately, it's too late…" Xiaya shook his head and quickly arrived in front of Android 18. He then extended his hand and grabbed her shoulder. Android 18 cried out in fear as she was greeted with floating hair, shining with golden light, and a pair of green, ruthless eyes.
Android 18 kept squirming, but the strength in Xiaya's hand was not something she could repel. She was feeling frightened.
How can this Golden Flame Warrior become so strong? He obviously wasn't so powerful before! The Super Saiyan's ruthless green eyes were like the ice water beneath the polar glaciers, making her whole body cold and stiff.
Just then, Xiaya flipped over his other hand and sparkling rays of light shone in Android 18's pleading eyes.
"Don't kill me!"
She pleaded, but the light ball containing powerful energy had already formed.
The energy ball suddenly expanded. It was like a big ball filled with water, as it quickly swallowed Android 18 whole. Just like that, without any resistance and no earth-shaking sound, Android 18 silently disappeared amidst the sea of
"Considering that you look beautiful on the outside, I will grant you a quick death!" Xiaya sighed; he waved his hand and dissipated the huge energy ball, leaving behind no traces of a corpse.
With his current meticulous control, even the frightening energy that was sufficient enough to easily destroy the planet could be effortlessly controlled.
Android 18, who had been feared for more than a decade by this world, had disappeared!
"Damn, you killed 18!" Looking helplessly as his sister was killed by the Golden Flame Warrior, Android 17 was at a loss, before he suddenly descended into madness. He screamed and intended to rush toward Xiaya.
"Your opponent is me!" Gohan's tall and straight body suddenly appeared in front of 17, barring his path.
"Damn it, Damn it, Damn it! Go to hell!!" Android 17 roared angrily. At this time, he was like an angry wild beast. Android 18's death had made him crazy, so he doesn't care anymore about the survival of Earth.
"Gohan, let him come!"
Xiaya's eyes narrowed; his body flashed and appeared beside Gohan. At this time, Android 17 was the most dangerous. With Gohan's strength, he wouldn't be able to thoroughly suppress him. If anything went wrong, even Earth could be destroyed. So, after briefly thinking for a moment, he planned to personally intervene.
"Okay!" Gohan nodded and made way, letting Android 17 rush towards Xiaya.
"I was afraid that you won't come." Xiaya's green eyes flashed with a cold light, and he casually waved towards Android 17. In an instant, an incomparably vast number of energy balls scattered out, and the blue energies intertwined, like sparkling and shiny lines weaving an energy cage resembling a net around Android 17.
Android 17 was immediately locked in it.
"What is this?" Crazily shouting, Android 17 looked gloomy, his black hair swaying with the wind. After losing his only sister, Android 17 went completely crazy.
"This world has been seriously damaged, all of which are your sins. Well, why couldn't you preserve your human conscience?"
"I had said that day that when we meet once again, it will be the time of your death. Now, you can report to Underworld!" Xiaya said in a low voice, and a bright white light flashed between his fingers and swiftly shot towards Android 17's heart.
An extremely dazzling ray of light ripped through the void. At this moment, no radiance was beautiful and touching like this ray of light.
Android 17 gave a blood-curdling scream; the light ray, having a strong penetrating power like a laser, forcibly pierced through his chest and shot from behind him. Blood splashed out and scattered in the air as Android 17's heart was instantly crushed.
"Ha ha ha, Golden Flame Warrior… you really turned out to be a disaster in the end. If I had known earlier, I wouldn't have toyed around with you for so many years…"
Android 17 muttered and gradually lost consciousness. Although Androids had undergone transformations by Dr. Gero, they were not fully mechanical life. Although the nano-components in their cells could give them infinite stamina and energy, once they lose their heart, they would also die just like humans.
Xiaya calmly looked on, and then he waved his hand and similarly completely destroyed Android 17's dead body.
From today on, this world of Golden Flame Warriors would no longer have to face the threat of Androids.
"Mr. Xiaya, thank you!"
Gohan flew over and gave Xiaya a deep bow, his eyes red. How many years has it been? Earth has finally regained peace, and this is all credit to Mr. Xiaya. He was full of gratitude towards Xiaya who gave him pointers and helped them kill the Androids.
"It's nothing! Your next mission is even more important. It would not be simple to rebuild Earth," Xiaya looked at the desolate land and said softly.
"Mhm!" Gohan nodded vigorously. He turned around and looked in the distance where ruins spread far and wide. There are still many things to do, such lofty feelings welled up in his heart.
Chapter 278 Peace finally arrived.
