An hour later, multitude of objects ranging from metal chunks to broken concrete slabs littered the floor.
Long Yu was exhausted after continuously destroying objects with his armoured leg.
Wiping off his sweat with a towel, he decided that it was time to test his mobility.
He first traded in all the trash and metal racks to clear the place.
Next, Long Yu started doing jumps. On his first try, he easily propelled himself upwards, using the enhanced strength in his left leg.
As a result, he flew more than two meters up into the air. Sadly for him, the take off was not good, and neither was the landing. He tried his best to regain his balance in the air, but he still fell on his butt.
Even after a few more tries, Long Yu was not able to execute a decent power jump with the armor. This was because he was still not used to augmenting the amount of strength that he applied to his jumps.
Although he now had experience in controlling the power in his kicks, it was much more rudimentary compared to the precision needed for mobility.
After more than half and hour of jumping around in the warehouse, Long Yu finally managed to get the hang of it. He was now able to jump over tall obstacles and land properly, most of the time.
"Phew, this regeneration ability sure is convenient," Long Yu said as he looked at the bruises and scrapes that he received from his poor landings, slowly disappear.
Next, he practiced sprinting with the exoskeleton armor activated. It did not take long for him to get used to it, thanks to his previous jump test experiences.
Long Yu left the warehouse, satisfied with his practice today. He felt that his overall combat power had risen drastically compared to before.
If he were to face that stage 1 zombie again, he was sure that he would be able to kill it immediately, with hand to hand combat alone.
As Long Yu headed to his car from afar, he could see a few men lingering nearby. It seems as if they were waiting for something.
He ignored them and continued walking towards the driver's side of the door.
Suddenly, he heard footsteps approaching him from behind. Long Yu calmly turned around to face the group of people.
"Hey dude, is this your car?" a young man with blonde spiky hair spoke to him in a rude tone.
"Yes, is there a problem?" Long Yu replied without care, as if he did not notice the person's impolite behaviour. He already knew that these people did not come with good intentions.
"Hahaha, that's great. It's a really nice car. Must be very expensive…" the young man laughed as he gave the car high praises.
Seeing Long Yu just staring at him without replying, the young man felt awkward.
"Get lost! Can't even get something done properly. Useless!" A middle aged brawny man wearing a tank top suddenly stepped forward as he shoved the young man aside.
"Hey kid, if you know what's good for you, hand over-" before the man could finish his sentence, he heard Long Yu mutter something.
"Zhang Yong, age 31, wanted for 3 cases of robberies over the past couple of days…four officers received heavy injuries while trying to apprehend suspect yesterday…"
"You! How do you know me?!" the brawny man known as Zhang Yong was shocked, when he heard the details recited by the young man in front of him.
"Oh, I just saw it on the news this morning. Bald muscular man with ugly features...Seems to match your profile," Long Yu said nonchalantly.
"You! Hmph, since you know dangerous I am, then you better listen to what I say, or else…" Zhang Yong threatened.
"Or else what?" Long Yu asked with a curious expression on his face.
'Is this kid retarded?' the group of lackeys could not help but think, when they saw Long Yu's reaction.
They all knew how terrifying the boss's strength was. He alone managed to shrug off five police officers who were trying to arrest him, and then proceeded to beat them up.
Zhang Yong was pissed when he saw the young man trying to make a fool of him. He felt that everybody should bow before him.
He, who is now the new boss of his gang, is feared and respected by all his underlings thanks to his newfound strength. Even the previous boss would have to suck up to him like an obedient dog.
Two days ago, he was unexpectedly blessed with a formidable power. His strength and endurance suddenly increased tremendously. He could put big dents into metal with his fists alone.
So, he grew braver, and decided to hit the city's banks by relying on his strength. During his heist yesterday, he easily dominated the cops who tried to arrest him.
Zhang Yong could sense himself growing stronger by the day. It gave him the feeling that he was unstoppable.
Today, while they were returning to their hideout, he noticed an expensive looking car parked nearby. So, he decided to openly seize it from its owner.
To think that the owner was a weak looking kid, and would even dare go against him. It clearly angered him a lot.
Zhang Yong grabbed the steel pipe in one of his lackey's hand, and snapped it in half with his bare hands.
'Hmm, this guy must have awakened his ability… enhanced strength, I assume?' Long Yu thought to himself, when he saw the trick performed by the boss.
"Haha kid, are you afraid now? Your father, I, will break your bones just like this pipe!" Zhang Yong said as he stride towards Long Yu.
"Not bad, it seems you have mutated earlier than the others… but trying to rob me was a big mistake!"
Before Zhang Yong was able to react, he felt an immense force hitting his chest.
The sound of broken bones could be heard, as the boss was shot more than ten meters into the distance.
Long Yu slowly retracted his left leg. If one looked closely, they would notice a glimmer of silver quickly disappearing from his leg.
