Pa. The Leader mecha's cabin door burst open as Grant jumped out flustered and exasperated. For a moment, he felt humiliated. For another moment, he felt indignant. Rushing over to Tian Xing Jian, he threw his fist out and started to beat him while scolding, For you to even use a sneak attack, you are too despicable.
Tian Xing Jian immediately retreated behind Nadal before naively saying with an expression of loss, Do you also fight against your enemies on the battlefield with philosophy?
Nadal stood in front of Fatty as he sneered at Grant, You have taken the first action. Now that someone has directly fought back against you, you're saying that others used sneak attacks on you? If you lose, just admit defeat. Are you a sore loser?
The surrounding soldiers from the special scouts battalion moved forward together as they successively cracked their fists and rolled up their sleeves in preparation for a fight.
Grant's face was somewhat red and somewhat white at the same time. After a moment, he finally threw down a sentence of wait and see before leading the commandos away angrily.
Alice felt that this wretched fatty was truly too despicable. His methods were all despicable and shameless to the max. She truly wanted to see the fatty being beaten to the point where he has to beg for his life. Yet this battle had ultimately been a loss for Grant. If they were to linger on any further, it would merely be bringing troubles upon themselves. As she was leaving, she could not help but glare at the fatty, yet what she saw was the wretched fatty giving her a flying kiss. She was filled with redhot anger, and yet she could not do anything, Alice stomped her feet on the ground before running away. She had even ignored Grant as he called for her.
The entire camp finally started quiet down. Nadal gave the fatty a smile that did not seem like a smile. You are good, Fatty. For you to let Grant eat such a big defeat, it seems that my eyesight is good.
Fatty rubbed his head in a sillymanner before replying with modest, It's just luck, just luck. My level of battling with Battle Mechas is truly too low. All I can do is just bully those who have lower intelligence than me.
Amidst the laughter of all the soldiers, Rashid announced, From today onwards, first lieutenant Tian Xing Jian, th division special scouts battalion, first company, we officially welcome you into our company.
As Nadal left, he could not conceal his happiness. Seeing the defeated expression of Grant was truly one of his biggest joys. Who would have thought that even with such a fat external appearance, Fatty would have such formidable skill. Not only could he use his mouth to seemingly poison the other side, but his methods were also truly despicable and shameless. It seemed that this time, they could ride on the heads of the commando battalion. Making his decision, Nadal immediately went on to spread this news in the division department.
Joining together against a common adversary would truly create a mood of camaraderie between strangers, and for one of their own to create such a huge humiliation to the common
adversary, he was totally the hero of their group. Thus, fatty, with the halo of heroism, soon integrated himself into the special scouts battalion.
