God and Devil World - Chapter 211-220
Chapter 211: Bringing Down The House!
“Wait a moment!” Right at this moment, the manager of the casino came running forward, his face full of perspiration, and he brought a few security guards with him.
“What! Is your place not going to pay up after losing?” Yue Zhong glanced at the manager and his security guards, barking out coldly while smirking.
“Fuck! This daddy had lost over a tonne of ration tickets! I’ve just started to make back my loss and you guys don’t want to pay?”
“I didn’t say anything when I was losing, now that your casino is losing you want to ignore us?”
The various gamblers around Yue Zhong started to curse out loud, and the entire casino became tense.
Yue Zhong hugged Ning Yuxin close to him with one arm as he observed the events unfolding while smiling coldly. There was no need for him to act, and these gamblers who had just chanced on a windfall would automatically band together to make a ruckus.
The manager glared at Yue Zhong and said in a solemn voice: “Sir! I suspect that you’re cheating!! You must be an Enhancer! This casino doesn’t allow Enhancers to gamble!”
“I did not see any of such announcements anywhere! Your casino is obviously unwilling to pay up! Everyone, let’s trash this place! We must snatch back our money!!” Yue Zhong laughed coldly, before suddenly exploding out and kicked out explosively at the manager, causing him to fly back 6-7 metres, knocking a few tables over.
After taking out the manager with a single kick, Yue Zhong shot forward and sent out a flurry of punches at the security guards, the punches so quick that only shadows could be seen. The guards were knocked back explosively, spitting out a mouthful of fresh blood.
The moment Yue Zhong acted, the whole casino plunged into chaos, and screams rang out. Within the big hall, many tried to escape. Some gamblers who had lost terribly saw that no one was paying attention to them, and made a beeline for the chips exchange. They beat up the service staff, before stealing those ration-tickets and running for the exit in a frenzy.
Right at this time, a burly young man with an eagle-like gaze and the snarl of a wolf came into the lobby floor with a number of subordinates, as he barked out coldly: “Who dares to cause trouble at my place, are you tired of living?!”
This fierce looking young man was one of the 10 strongest fighters in Hong Triad, the Blade Demon Han Wen Li! His enhancement level reached 40, and he had killed a huge number of Mutant Beasts, zombies as well as human opponents. The strongest fighter of the Green Bamboo Gang Wang Wen Shen was killed by him.*1
Yue Zhong glanced at Blade Demon Han Wen Li and issued an order coldly: “Kill them all!”
White Bones, who had been posing as an ordinary gambler, suddenly launched its assault. 10 sharp bone spikes shot out from its body, aiming for Han Wen Li.
Han Wei Li’s vision and attention was fixed on Yue Zhong, and when he was ambushed by the sudden assault from White Bones, he was taken aback.
However, he was after all still an expert that had been through countless battles, and he quickly condensed a few blade shadows to deal with the bone spears.
After the sounds of metal clashing, the 10 bone spears were actually blocked by Han Wei Li.
Peng! Just as Han Wen Li managed to defend by a narrow margin, Yue Zhong had already pulled out his Stinger and fired a shot at Han Wei Li’s head.
In that instant, Han Wei Li, who had expended his all to defend against the 2 of them, had his head blasted into smithereens, as the ever familiar red and white pulpy chunks splattered on the floor. As he fell, his lifeless body was instantly pierced by a bone spear.
After penetrating Han Wei Li, the bone spear that was dyed red by the blood grew forward in a line and pierced through the subordinates that had followed in. In an instant, the dozens of Hong Triad members found their bodies sliced in two, as their innards and blood gushed out onto the floor. Blood curdling, miserable, hair-raising screams resounded throughout the entire casino both from the victims and bystanders.
Witnessing the gruesome and terrifying scene, all the gamblers, dealers and service staff felt intense fear, and began to run for their lives.
Ning Yuxin looked on at the horrible plight of those Hong Triad members, and her face turned paler than a sheet. It was the first time she was witnessing a one-sided fight of this level of cruelty!
Yue Zhong shot a look at the security cameras and smirked, doing a ‘cut throat’ motion, before following Ning Yuxin and White Bones out of the place.
Ma Li Tie watched the events through the security cameras, and saw the countless corpses, his eyes filled with intense fury and he screamed: “I will kill him!! I want to kill him!”
Dan Hong saw the numerous Hong Triad members who had their lower bodies sliced off, and his heart was filled with regret, as his fat body trembled.
Jiang Li Hong’s brows creased gently, as he thought: “What’s going on? Is he giving up just like this? Impossible, he’s definitely not like this!!”
In the Glorious Golden Jade, security was tight, and there were many hidden weapons and traps. If Yue Zhong was to forcefully charge in, Ma Li Tie felt that he would be able to thoroughly teach Yue Zhong a lesson.
At this time, the entire hotel shook, as though a giant had knocked into the building with extreme force.
With that huge sound, the Glorious Golden Jade began crumbling and collapsing unto itself, as the building broke apart. Over 200 Hong Triad members were buried within the debris.
Bai Xiaosheng patted the man beside him on the shoulder shoulder and laughed as he watched the building fall. “Chen Shenggang, this time, you did great! With this, I’m sure that at least 3/4 of those filthy trash inside are dead!”
Chen Shenggang wiped the perspiration off his face. His expression was one of pride, yet he humbly said: “It’s all due to the Boss!! If it wasn’t for his idea, I wouldn’t even know that my ability could be used like this! Furthermore, Boss had been in there for some time drawing their attention, otherwise I would have practically no way of utilizing my skill!”
The collapse of the Glorious Golden Jade was precisely due to Chen Shenggang making use of his [Earth Manipulation] skill that forcefully caused the foundations of the building to give way, in turn resulting in the entire building being destroyed.
The attention of Ma Li Tie and the rest were all on Yue Zhong, and this gave Chen Shenggang the needed time to cast his skill.
“Chen Shenggang! Come here!”
“Yes!” Under Yue Zhong’s orders, Chen Shenggang quickly came to his side.
“Separate this area!” Yue Zhong pointed to a huge pile of debris.
On top of that very pile of rubble, was a Shadow Wolf standing watch. In fact, it could be used to sniff out the scent of people who were still alive inside the debris.
Chen Shenggang walked over, and activated his skill. The ground started to open up, revealing 2 Hong Triad members. Both of them were entirely drenched with blood.
Yue Zhong only gave them a cursory glance and White Bones shot out 2 sharp spikes into their chests. Killing them immediately was always the best plan, so as to remove later potential threats.
With the guidance of the Shadow Wolf, the ground opened up a number of times after that, and the remaining Hong Triad survivors were killed by White Bones without mercy.
The ground split open again, but this time, a huge wolf-like claw shot out, slashing towards Chen Shenggang.
At the same time, White Bones exploded out with a sharp bone blade that directly slashed at the wolf claw, chopping it off and causing blood to spray out!
Chen Shenggang’s face flashed with shock and fear, and retreated a few steps. If it wasn’t for White Bones, his neck might have been snapped by that huge wolf-like claw.
From the rubble, Ma Li Tie’s agonized scream of fury rang out: “Yue Zhong!! I am Hong Triad’s Elder Ma Li Tie!! You can’t kill me!! Otherwise, the entire Hong Triad will come after your blood!! You won’t have a place to live in Guilin City at all!!”
Within the rubble, Dan Hong’s trembling voice also sounded: “Yue Zhong!! I am Dan Hong!! The superintendent of Xinyang District!! You can’t kill me!! If you kill me, it’s tantamount to slaying a government official! The government would definitely not let you off!!”
Inside the rubble, Jiang Li Hong was currently breathing raggedly, blood dripping from the side of his mouth. Besides him, it was only Dan Hong, the pair of twins trapped in the metal cage, as well as Ma Li Tie who had transformed into a werewolf that were still alive.
When the building had started to collapse, Jiang Li Tao had immediately activated his ability [Air Barrier], and made use of the metal cage to block some of the falling debris. Otherwise they would have all died, or at the very least, been permanently crippled.
The collapse of the Glorious Golden Jade had seriously spooked Ma Li Tie, Dan Hong and the rest. It was the first time that they had skirted the edge of death.
Yue Zhong looked at the pile of rubble and barked out coldly: “Get out all of you! I’m giving you only 20 seconds. If not, I’m going to lob a grenade in there!”
As of now, a single hand grenade would be able to decimate the rubble and killing everyone within it. There was absolutely no cause of worry that these people wouldn’t immediately go to heaven, or hell.
With the threat, Ma Li Tie and the rest climbed out from the rubble gingerly.
Ma Li Tie, who had turned into a 3m-tall werewolf earlier, and having an arm that was chopped off, looked at Yue Zhong and slowly spoke: “Yue Zhong! This time, I recognize your strength! As long as you let me leave here alive! Everything in the past will be forgotten by the Hong Triad. The Green Stone Triad would also be considered our good friends!”
Ma Li Tie only wanted to live right now, as to future plans, he would leave it to only after ascertaining he had a future.
“Seal his movements!” Yue Zhong eyed Ma Li Tie and ordered detachedly.
White Bones suddenly shot out 3 sharp bone blades and sliced off Ma Li Tie’s remaining right arm and both legs, crippling him, as his limbless body fell to the floor.
“Ah!!! Yue Zhong!! I’ll kill you!!” *2 Ma Li Tie screamed out in agony and burning hatred.
Seeing Ma Li Tie’s wretched appearance, Jiang Li Hong, Dan Hong as well as the 2 lolis inside the cage shivered with immense fear.
Dan Hong looked at Yue Zhong and trembled visibly, as he stammered: “You can’t kill me!! I’m a government official!! If you kill me, the government won’t let you off!!”
Yue Zhong threw a Dark Magic Blade in front of Dan Hong, pointing to Ma Li Tie, and held his Stinger to Dan Hong’s head, threatening: “Dan Hong, Chop off his head, and work for me. I will then leave you with your life! Otherwise I can immediately blow your brains out! *3
You have 5 seconds to decide! 5…!”
Chapter 212: The Clutches of Foreign Forces!
“I’m sorry!” Hearing Yue Zhong’s words, Dan Hong was filled with the fear of death, and he immediately grabbed the Dark Magic Blade and swung it towards Ma Li Tie’s head.
“Dan Hong! You can’t…..” Ma Li Tie had not finished cursing, and his head was chopped off, rolling away.
Yue Zhong eyed Dan Hong and chuckled coldly: “Good! Good! Well done!!”
With the swing, Dan Hong had severed ties with the Hong Triad. Like this, he had become a chess piece for Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong’s gaze then landed on Jiang Li Hong, turning cold all of a sudden, and intending to get White Bones to finish him off.
JIang Li Hong looked at Yue Zhong, and a chill came over him, as he hastily cried out: “My name is Jiang Li Hong, and I was Ma Li Tie’s general in the past. I’m also a Protector of the Hong Triad! I’m a Level 32 Enhancer, and possess the ability [Air Manipulation]. I’m willing to denounce my past and swear loyalty to you, Sire! Please spare my life! I know a lot of information on the Hong Triad. I’m definitely of use to you!”
Yue Zhong eyed Jiang Li Hong and commanded in a low voice: “Bring them all away!!”
A few soldiers stepped up, and brought Jiang Li Hong, Dan Hong and the 2 girls in the cage away, disappearing into the darkness of the night.
Just as Yue Zhong and his group disappeared without a trace, the sounds of police sirens wailed from afar, and after a long while, a police car then arrived at the scene.
At a nearby apartment, Yue Zhong looked at Dan Hong: “Dan Hong! You have already killed Ma Li Tie. The Hong Triad would not let you go. I want you to issue out a warrant for the leader, vice leader as well as the other 6 Elders of the Hong Triad!”
Dan Hong laughed bitterly as he replied: “Yue Zhong! Issuing a warrant of arrest is not as simple as you think! To get the approval of the higher-ups is especially difficult. The leader , vice-leader and 6 Elders of the Hong Triad are all high level Enhancers, even the leader is an Evolver. Unless they had committed a huge crime like murdering over a number of people and causing the ordinary people to lead difficult lives, we can’t randomly issue a warrant for their arrest! Otherwise, it would definitely be rejected!”
The leader, vice-chief and the 6 Elders of the Hong Triad were not without any protection. Dan Hong had dared to flout the rules in a bid to deal with Yue Zhong earlier, but even he did not dare make any moves against those from the Hong Triad. Not to say just him, even the mayor himself would have to think twice before making a move on any of these huge triads.
Yue Zhong frowned, his gaze on Dan Hong turning unkind. If this was truly the case, then he had just saved a piece of trash that had no use to him.
Dan Hong felt his body prickling with needles when he was stared at by Yue Zhong, and started breaking out in cold sweat.
Jiang Li Hong offeree: “Boss!! The chief and 4 of the Elders are currently outside hunting Mutant Beasts and zombies. Ma Li Tie was also dealt with already! It could be said that the Hong Triad is at its weakest now! There’s only vice-chief Mauritius and Elder Bruce left at headquarters!! As long as you work together with Superintendent Dan, you can easily take down the Hong Triad!! According to my knowledge, Shen Ying or Mayor Shen has no favourable impression of the Hong Triad, if we were to eradicate them, he would definitely sit aside and watch without making a move!”
Dan Hing hastily chipped in: “Old Jiang is right! As long as any conflicts between Enhancers do not affect the rest of the city, Mayor Shen Ying would not intervene. He has always hated those Enhancers who have been a little out of control.”
Yue Zhong frowned and asked in a chilly tone: “The Hong Triad’s vice-chief and Elder are foreigners?”
Jiang Li Hong affirmed with a hint of indignation: “Yea!! The chief Chen Hongye was part of a multinational corporation called the CMT Group in the past. Mauritius and Bruce were part of the upper management as well. They had escaped from Nanning into Guilin City together, making use of their resources to establish the Hong Triad. Hong Triad is also the only gang with the most foreigners, and majority of the foreigners would choose to join Hong Triad. They’re all united, and hold high positions in Hong Triad, of every 3 seats, at least 2 belongs to the foreigners.”
In China’s territory, there actually was a triad that allowed foreigners to possess 2 out of 3 seats of authority, and this caused Yue Zhong to be taken aback.
Yue Zhong stared at Dan Hong and asked coldly: “Are his words for real?”
Dan Hong flinched, and replied without hesitation: “Yes! Not a single falsehood. This intel is only known to the upper management and powers close to Hong Triad. However, as for the fact that the Chief and his 4 Elders are out hunting, I have no idea whether that is true or not. Only the upper management of Hong Triad would know.”
Yue Zhong pondered deeply for a while, before ordering Dan Hong: “I’ve decided! Let’s go destroy the Hong Triad! Dan Hong! Go get people to round up the external members of the Hong Triad. I’ll handle the rest of it.”
Dan Hong was caught up with Yue Zhong’s intimidating aura and he just replied: “Yes!”
“Maybe I should backstab him!!” When Dan Hong left Yue Zhong’s establishment, that thought suddenly popped into his mind. However, the moment he remembered the state of Ma Li Tie, his heart jumped and he quickly squashed all thoughts of betraying Yue Zhong.
Dan Hong consoled himself: “In any case, Mayor Chen dislikes those triads. This time, the war between the Green Stone Triad and the Hong Triad can be said to be the best scenario for us. Even if the Green Stone Triad won, they would suffer huge losses. Let them whittle each other’s forces then!!”
Dan Hong wasn’t a heroic person who did not fear death, instead, he had relied on his father’s connections previously and his bootlicking to get to his current position. Naturally, he had no way of siding with justice or otherwise, choosing instead only to benefit himself.
Very quickly, under Dan Hong’s orders, numerous police vehicles went on the streets again, this time aiming for the territories of the Hong Triad. They started to apprehend the members of the Hong Triad and threw them into jail.
In this post apocalypse, the influence and authority of the police was stronger than the past by at least 10 times, no one dared to go against the police. Unless a person had a death wish, or he was a truly strong Evolver/Enhancer.
Every single jail cell was soon filled up with members of the Hong Triad.
Inside an office building, Mauritius, who looked about 36 or 37, with a huge built body and blond hair was currently hollering at another blond man, with a similar body built and short light blond hair. This other person was younger, looking about 20+, and had incredibly good-looking features. “Those damn yellow-skinned monkeys!! Bruce!! Did you actually use enough ration tickets to feed them?”
Mauritius was a white supremacist. To him, other than caucasians, every other race were lower class. He had come to China because he could enjoy a levitated position and treatment, as well as a fat paycheck. He looked down on the Chinese, and viewed the rest of Southeast Asians with contempt.
Bruce chuckled as though they were sharing a joke: “I’ve already given bananas to those monkeys! But I think they’re just disobedient. After all, since there’re so many monkeys, there will definitely be some who can’t sit still. Mauritius, don’t you worry. They just want to earn more cash. I’ve been dealing with them for so long, as long as you have the cash, and you’re white, you’re the closest thing to God in their eyes!”
CMT Group used to span across several countries, and was a huge conglomerate in Europe. Prior to the apocalypse, Mauritius would receive lavish treatment wherever he went in China. Those government officials could not wait to kiss his ass and seek his investment in their locations, allowing them to gain chances for promotions.
Mauritius calmed himself down, then spoke: “What a bunch of greedy monkeys! Bruce, go push them back!! These monkeys are low-class and stupid, but they’re useful cannon fodder! We must finish our task that Lord Apostle had assigned us, and we need those monkeys as the fodder.”
Bruce replied loudly: “Yes!” before heading out.
Mauritius continued to ponder: “Who is it exactly that is trying to go against us? Don’t tell me… the government knows what we’re doing? No, not possible, only we know of that secret. If the government of Guilin City has discovered, then our enemy would be an entire army.
“Lord Bruce, please wait!!” Just as Bruce was about to step out, and head to Level 1, there was a man who stopped him.
Bruce turned around to discover Jiang Li Hong and the 2 beside him, Yue Zhong and White Bones.
At that instant, White Bones released a sharp bone spike that pierced Bruce’s head, killing him instantly.
Bruce was a Level 45 expert, but under White Bones’ sneak attack, he had no chance to exhibit his ability before he was killed immediately.
6 other sharp bone spikes shot out in all directions of that level, causing 6 other members of the Hong Triad to be immediately killed.
“Boss! We’re clear! All the security cameras are under my control!!” One of the soldiers who possessed the ability [Communications Control] had gained access into the system security, and notified Yue Zhong with a smile.
Yue Zhong nodded lightly towards the soldier, before bringing Jiang Li Hong, White Bones and 20 other well-equiped soldiers as they charged up the stairs.
Bai Xiaosheng was leading the way as the vanguard, and he activated his own insane speed, flitting through the hallway and killing anyone who stood in their way. Almost any enemy that strayed into his path would immediately be decapitated.
Besides Bai Xiaosheng, Ying Kaishan and Zheng Minghe weren’t just decorative lamps, and they charged forwards killing those hooligans who lacked any order or command.
Under the combined assault from these 3, Yue Zhong and the other 20 soldiers did not meet much resistance all the way till they reached the 13th level.
That was when the entire building rang out with screeching sirens and wailing alarms!
Chapter 213: The Judgement Corps!
“Die!! Die!! Die!! Haha!!” Bai Xiaosheng’s eyes were red with bloodlust, as he roared with mad laughter and charged into the midst of the enemies. He swung his blades unceasingly, cutting any unfortunate Hong Triad members that stepped up to face him into 2 pieces. *1
Bai Xiaosheng, Ying Kaishan and Zheng Minghe charged forwards, with their combined strength, even when some Enhancers from the Hong Triad appeared, they took them out easily.
Wave after wave of Hong Triad members appeared, only to be slaughtered by the trio, and pretty soon the 14th and 15th levels were cleared of guards.
Another foreigner with blond hair and dressed in a suit came up to Mauritius in a panic: “Mauritius, those yellow-skinned monkeys have already pushed to the 17th Level!! What do we do?”
Mauritius slammed the table, his face ashen, as he barked out: “What are you panicking about? Send the Judgement Corps out! Wipe the enemy out! Do not leave a single one alive! The Judgement Corps will be more than enough to deal with them!”
The spirits of the subordinate immediately lifted, as he became excited and left: “Yes!! The Judgement Corps!! That’s right!!”
Mauritius had a grim face as he cursed under his breath: “Damn monkeys, you dare challenge my authority! I’ll let you have a taste of civilized weapons!”
“Go to hell!! Haha!” Bai Xiaosheng was overcome by bloodlust, as he slaughtered the Hong Triad warriors without mercy. His face was a mask of mad laughter, as he led over 20 experts and charged into the 17th Level.
Just as Bai Xiaosheng brought his men to a corner of the 17th storey, out of the blue, a number of soldiers suddenly appeared. They were dressed in khaki-camouflage military suits, and they were holding M4s as they charged and fired wildly at Bai Xiaosheng and his men.
Blanketed by the sudden rain of bullets, Bai Xiaosheng’s troop of over 20 men were all of a sudden under assault, and some fell onto the floor.
The rest of the soldiers immediately dove for cover, or used their abilities to begin defending themselves. Out of the 10 experts that had been hit, 8 of them had quickly rolled to nearby points of cover, only 2 unfortunate soldiers had their brains exploded.
It was the first time Yue Zhong’s troops had faced casualties since coming to Guilin City.
Amidst those soldiers dressed in khaki-camouflage military suits, there were 4 of them supporting an anti-tank rocket launcher, and at the first moment, they had aimed at the soldiers who were using their abilities to create barriers, and fired.
Following the sounds of explosions, 2 of the Enhancers who had the ability to create barriers were immediately blasted into pieces.
These khaki-suit soldiers were the Judgement Corps that Mauritius had as his trump card. Every single one of them had undergone the strictest training regimes of special forces, and had over 3,000 rounds of various ammunition on them. Every one of them was proficient in all sorts of modern weaponry, and they had used the System equipment to strengthen themselves. All of them were at least Level 15, and were well-equipped, as well as experienced in combat. At the same time, the force was made entirely of foreigners, and in this foreign land, they were incredibly united, their fighting will and morale high, and although they were only a company, their force was comparable to an elite battalion.
In just a short exchange of 20 seconds, Yue Zhong’s side had already lost 4 elite soldiers who had experienced countless fights. If it wasn’t for the Type 3 Mutant Beast hide, there might have been more casualties.
After the Judgement Corps managed to impede the advance of Bai Xiaosheng and his troops, a few of them pulled out hand grenades and started to lob them over.
“Damn bastards!!” One of the soldiers had a [Wind Manipulation] skill and he activated it, causing a strong whirlwind to blow the grenades back towards the Judgement Corps.
“Time for your own medicine!” Bai Xiaosheng smirked coldly as he watched the grenades fly back.
Seeing as the grenades were about to land back in their midst, 5 of the Judgement Corps soldiers fired at the grenades coldly.
Those grenades which were blown back exploded in mid air due to their precise aim.
“They’re all experts!” Bai Xiaosheng witnessed this, and his heart turned cold. That sort of gun control and marksmanship was unseen even amongst the 20 experts he led himself.
The Judgement Corps switched to their grenade launchers, seeing that the hand grenades are useless, and started bombarding the soldiers with explosives.
Hong! Hong! Loud explosions occurred continuously, and the various points of cover were destroyed. An Agility-based Enhancer was forced to leap out from his spot, as he activated his skill, intending to rush towards another location.
Bam! Bam! Bam! The moment the Agility-based Enhancer stepped out of his cover, 3 bullets penetrated his head, killing him instantly.
The entire Judgement Corps was like a powerful weapon of war that suppressed Bai Xiaosheng and his troops. The primary reason for this was that they relied mainly on melee weapons and a few handguns so they couldn’t fight back well.
Amongst Yue Zhong’s troops, there were a few sharpshooters of course, however, when those normal handgun bullets landed on the suits of the Judgement Corps, they just bounced off, not injuring them in the slightest.
The Judgement Corps was not arrogant nor impatient, fighting steadily and destroying points of cover systematically, forcing the soldiers out, before neatly picking them off. The tide of the battle was beginning to turn to their favour.
“Kill them all!”
Smash! Right at this time, following the sounds of breaking glass, 4 sharp bone blades swept through the necks of 4 Judgement Corps soldiers near the window, immediately decapitating them.
The pitch-black body of White Bones had appeared after it leapt in from the window, and without giving the enemy a second to react, it had created 10 sharp bone blades from its body and it started spinning madly. The spinning blades caused immense carnage amongst the Judgement Corps!
The soldiers around White Bones that were caught up in its whirlwind of deadly blades were all ripped to shreds, as flesh and blood splattered everywhere simultaneously. It was a most terrifying scene.
White Bones had single handedly killed 8 soldiers of the Judgement Corps with its initial attacks. It now raised its huge axe and charged towards the rest of them.
The commanding officer of the Judgement Corps looked at White Bones and shouted an order hoarsely: “Attack!! Kill him!! Kill him!!”
Not than 10 members of the Judgement Corps turned their aim towards the attacker and began firing wildly, as a dense barrage of bullets assaulted the fast approaching White Bones. Unfortunately, all they did was bounce off its resilient bones, not causing any form of damage.
White Bones displayed a speed that was 9 times that of a normal person, and in just a second, it managed to cross a distance of dozens of metres, as it rushed into the midst of the group of Judgement Corps. It did the same move when it appeared, turning in a furious whirlwind and slicing 6 of the Judgement Corps members into sloppy pieces.
White Bones dashed about the battlefield, this time appearing by the side of 4 other Judgement Corps soldiers, instantly turning them into meat paste.
“Ah!!! Freak!! Monster!!” Seeing this horrifying scene, one of the soldiers could not take it anymore and screamed as he fired wildly at White Bones.
In just a single second, White Bones leapt past that soldier, and his body was sliced into 6 or 7 pieces, as they slid onto the floor, blood flowing everywhere.
The officer commanding the Judgement Corps hurriedly reloaded his own gun as he shouted out: “Use grenades!! Don’t waste the bullets! He’s not afraid of bullets!!”
10 of the soldiers immediately loaded the grenade launchers and aimed at White Bones.
White Bones flashed about, walking on the walls like a ghost, and the 10 soldiers trying to operate the grenade launchers could not get an accurate aim on him.
Sharp bone spikes shot out from White Bones like arrows, directly piercing the heads of the 10 soldiers, nailing their now dead bodies to the ground.
Bai Xiaosheng watched all these, and his heart trembled: “Too strong!! Is this the true strength of White Bones?”
Bai Xiaosheng had always thought his speed was above White Bones, but if the two were to really clash, he would definitely be taken down in just a single exchange. White Bones was impervious to guns and blades, and its ability to shoot out bone spikes out from anywhere from its body was too fearsome.
Ying Kaishan looked at White Bones clearing the Judgement Corps by itself, and was shocked. That little ambition in his heart was also suppressed: “So strong!! He undoubtedly is Yue Zhong’s most loyal and trustworthy aide!”
White Bones was practically a meat grinder as it took the lives of the Judgement Corps one by one, in a short matter of 20 seconds, over 50 soldiers of the Judgement Corps had fallen at its hands.
“Go to hell!! Monster!!” The leader of the Judgement Corps, a Level 40 Enhancer, stepped forth and activated a barrier in front of him, stopping White Bones’ advance and its bone blades.
Another commander wielded a Dark Magic Blade and swung it viciously at White Bones.
With a flash, White Bones’ body disappeared from the 2 commanders’ view, and leapt to the dozen other soldiers, again spinning in a whirlwind with its bone blades, turning those unfortunate soldiers into meaty pulp.
White Bones’ intelligence had been enhanced once, and it had learnt to exercise its own judgement on the battlefield. Of course it would not just stay fixed on one single target when it could fight many.
Another 7 soldiers of the Judgement Corps had been killed right in front of their eyes, and by this time, the rest of the surviving soldiers were starting to collapse and lose their will. They fought to retreat, and one even jumped out of a window by the side.
“Kill!” Bai Xiaosheng was the first to charge out as he wielded a Dark Magic Blade.
By this time, the Judgement Corps had lacked all sense of a troop, and only the 2 commanders were still resisting.
Ying Kaishan waved his hand, and activated his [Freezing Cold] ability, as countless sharp ice picks formed out of thin air and shot towards the 2 commanders.
Of the 2, the one with the [Barrier] ability activated it again, easily blocking the ice picks. The other swung his blade rapidly, crushing the incoming ice picks.
“Kite! Be careful!!” The blade-wielding commander turned to look at his comrade as he was defending, and his face changed.
Bai Xiaosheng had made use of that small pocket of time when their attention was diverted to appear behind the commander with the [Barrier] ability.
“Too late!!” Bai Xiaosheng chuckled coldly, and the sharp daggers in his hands went straight through the throat of the commander.
The Judgement Corps’ commander slid to the floor, his eyes filled with shock and disbelief.
“Kite!!” The blade-wielding commander Larman, bellowed with grief and rage as he swung his blade towards Bai Xiaosheng.
Larmen had enhanced his Level 3 [Blade Technique Specialization] skill, and although his speed could not compare to Bai Xiaosheng, his blade skills could force Bai Xiaosheng to a standstill.
Zheng Minghe saw this and commanded his men to continue their advance.
Ying Kaishan and Shang Lun exchanged a look before they charged at Larmen. The soldiers behind continued upwards with Zheng Minghe in the lead.
Larmen was already beneath Bai Xiaosheng in power, as he was surrounded by Ying Kaishan and Shang Lun, his situation was looking grim. However, he was still a decent fighter, and they would need time to kill him.
“I surrender!! Don’t kill me!!” On the 18th storey, a soldier threw his weapon and pleaded, after witnessing White Bones easily chopping his comrades up.
By this time, the entire Judgement Corps had suffered a tremendous loss, out of their commanders, 1 had died, the other was stuck, and the rest of the soldiers were quickly losing their will to fight. They could not see hope in the situation, and begged for mercy as a last resort.
The warriors from Europe were tenacious when battling, but the moment there was no hope to be seen, they would easily surrender as well.
White Bones’ eyes flashed, and the bone spear shot out, sparing the soldier who had just surrendered, before slicing the neck of another soldier behind him, sending the head flying.
“Surrender!! I surrender too!!”
“I’ve surrendered too!!”
The soldiers were all thoroughly frightened out of their wits, as they threw their weapons down, and hugged their heads kneeling on the ground.
“Strong!!” By the time Zheng Minghe had brought his men up to the 18th storey, they saw the numerous soldiers kneeling in surrender, and his heart could not remain calm.
The combat ability of those soldiers were truly fearsome, and Zheng Minghe had experienced it for himself. They complemented one another, their training was adequate, and their combat will was high. If it wasn’t for White Bones charging suddenly into their midst and causing them to lose their will, this battle would have been harder to win. Yue Zhong’s side might have paid a more painful price as well.
“The people from Green Stone Triad! I’m Mauritius! I hope to talk to your leader!! There must be a misunderstanding between us!!” At this time, a voice resounded on every level of the building.
Chapter 214: [Raven] Nano Combat Uniform Design!
Mauritius continued: “I’ll be waiting on the 22nd Storey!”
“Boss, what do we do?” Zheng Minghe turned to ask Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed coldly, as he ordered: “Continue the assault! All the way to the highest level! Crush their resistance entirely!”
Receiving Yue Zhong’s orders, White Bones shot towards the 19th storey like an arrow.
The 19th storey was the entertainment level for the Hong Triad, and there were many beautiful women in revealing clothes on that level. There were Chinese, and 8 foreigners as well, although the 8 foreign women were ordinary looking.
When the women saw White Bones charging up with its entire body covered in blood and some flesh, their bodies trembled, while fear flashed in their eyes.
White Bones surveyed the surroundings, and charged into the 20th storey after ascertaining that there was no threat on this level.
There was nobody left on the 20th or 21st storey by this time, and when Yue Zhong reached the 22nd storey, he saw Mauritius seated with proudly behind a big desk staring at him coldly.
Beside Mauritius, there were 13 blond-hair foreigners, every single one of them will a powerful stature, and they emitted a powerful aura, obviously looking dangerous and unwise to provoke.
Mauritius looked at Yue Zhong, before coldly barking: “I’m Mauritius, you must be Green Stone Triad’s Yue Zhong? Who’s the leader, bring him to see me!”
In Mauritius’ eyes, asians were lower beings, and he was only willing to speak to the leader of the Green Stone Triad. Talking to Yue Zhong was equivalent to throwing his face and lowering his position.
Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed coldly, and he waved his hand, and fired his Stinger directly once.
Peng! A single gunshot rang out!
One of the foreigners standing beside Mauritius had his head blasted, and fresh blood splattered on the ground.
Yue Zhong coldly replied: “This is my turf! You’d better be obedient! If you want to die, I don’t mind sending you on your way!”
One of the foreigners immediately bellowed in fury, reaching for his gun at his waist: “Bastard!! You dare to kill Mooney!! I won’t let you off!!”
With another peng! The level 30-plus Enhancer had not even reached his gun, and his brains were similarly blasted apart, his lifeless corpse slumping onto the ground.
Yue Zhong swept his gaze across the remaining 11 experts and coldly barked: “If you want to die! By all means, move as you like! Otherwise, stay the fuck still!”
White Bones, standing beside Yue Zhong, was wielding its huge axe and staring at the experts as well. The moment there was any strange movements from them, it would charge forwards without hesitation.
The remaining 11 foreigner experts looked at Yue Zhong and White Bones, their hearts beginning to feel a tinge of fear, as they trembled slightly, and not daring to move.
Mauritius forcefully suppressed the building rage inside him and spoke slowly: “Yue Zhong!! We came to your China in a bid to extend our hand in helping you guys!! Is this how you treat your foreign friends who came in peace? The Chinese government would definitely not tolerate these terrorist actions of yours that destroy such relationships between countries. If you leave here now, it’s still not too late! Otherwise, I will definitely lodge a complaint with the Chinese government, and get them to apprehend you!”
When dealing with the Chinese, the best method was to threaten government action. Be it before the apocalypse or after, Mauritius worked this tactic like a charm.
There was a tradition of the government being mindful of the westerners, even when there were foreign rapists who raped women in broad daylight, they would at most get 15 days of detention. These foreign rapists did not have any backing in the first place.
Mauritius differed because he was sent by an European conglomerate, and the government had to attend to his every request, hence he could twirl them around his fingers.
Yue Zhong’s eyes narrowed, and he fired once more.
With a peng! Another foreign expert lost his head.
Yue Zhong coldly replied: “Mauritius, you are full of bull! Whatever you have said, is bullshit! If you have the capabilities now, go activate the army to surround me! Otherwise, anymore of your nonsense and I’ll finish you off!”
Yue Zhong threatened: “Mauritius, you have only one chance now. Take your men, stand down, and surrender. Otherwise, I’m going to kill you all!”
“Damn you, you yellow-skinned monkey!! I’ll kill you!!” Mauritius was cursing inwardly, it was the first time that he had received such treatment from a Chinese person. As someone who was used to being revered, it was tantamount to humiliation.
Mauritius could not hold his anger in, and he barked out furiously: “In your dreams!! Damn monkey! You want me to surrender to you, impossible!! Charge!! Kill him!!”
Just as Mauritius bellowed in rage, 6 gunshots rang out almost simultaneous succession, and 6 of the experts had their heads blown off.
Of the 4 remaining experts, 2 of them had just twisted slightly out of their original position, when 2 sharp bone spikes pierced their heads, nailing them to the wall!
“I surrender!! Don’t kill me!!” One of the younger experts was shaking with fear as he screamed out.
The other expert also threw his weapon down, his hands raised high as he hugged his head and kneeled.
Mauritius had just stood up, when a sharp bone spike shot out, piercing his body through his right shoulder, nailing him to the wall.
Mauritius screamed out in pain as he cursed out loud: “Ahh!! Fucking monkey!! You will definitely regret this!! Once my master comes to China, he will definitely kill all you bitches and burn you to death!!”
Mauritius wasn’t an Enhancer, and was just an ordinary person. He could become the vice-chief of the Hong Triad purely because he had a number of experts under him, as well as the Judgement Corps.
Yue Zhong stared at Mauritius coolly and asked: “Who’re you people? What group are you from?”
Mauritius looked at Yue Zhong and revealed a grim smile, before spitting at him: “Peh!! You will never get the answer you want!!”
Ying Kaishan walked up at this moment, glancing at Mauritius before saying: “Boss! Hand him to me! I will make him spit out everything he knows!”
Yue Zhong replied in a cold tone: “Good! I’ll hand him to you! If he dies or whatever becomes of him, it doesn’t matter! I just want the information in his brain!”
Ying Kaishan smiled sardonically, and walked up to Mauritius. He grabbed his body and pulled him forcefully from the bone spike, dragging him into another room.
In a few moments, the tragic and pitiful screams of Mauritius could be heard within the room.
“I’ll speak!! I’ll speak!!! I’ll tell you everything!! Ah!!!!!”
Mauritius had not been able to withstand even 20 seconds of the torture and had collapsed entirely at Ying Kaishan’s hands.
The 2 remaining foreigner experts were shaking, not knowing what exactly had happened to Mauritius.
Yue Zhong, meanwhile, had went to the desk and rummaged through the items, seeing if he could discover any important or interesting information.
Just as he pulled out a drawer, he came across a set of designs:” Ah! What’s this?”
“Level 5 Treasure [Raven] Standard military combat equipment bionic nano – combat service design. [Raven] Nano Combat Uniform is manufacturable, with khaki as its chosen colour, dotted with camouflage, anti-radiation, 7.62mm bullet-resistant, increasing all attributes by 3 points. Manufacturing requires the blood of a Type 2 Mutant Beast….”
The moment Yue Zhong laid hands on the set of design, a huge amount of information regarding it was transmitted to his brain. This set of designs detailed the instructions on manufacturing the [Raven] Nano Combat Uniform!
The main component of the [Raven] Nano Combat Uniform was the Type 2 Mutant Beast blood, the rest of the materials were pretty ordinary. The manufacturing process wasn’t too tough as well, while it was cumbersome, as long as one followed the instructions, anybody could create the [Raven] Nano Combat Uniform.
Yue Zhong grabbed it tightly and became excited: “This is great! With this, I can create an Enhancer army!”
While the [Raven] Nano Combat Uniform’s defence could not compare to the Type 3 Mutant Beast hide, it had an extremely useful effect, which was the +3 to all attributes, and thus it was a quality System equipment.
The drop rate of decent equipment was very low, and under Yue Zhong, there were only about 20 people with Level 2 Enhancing equipment. There was one other who wore a Level 3 Enhancing armor, and only Yue Zhong himself wore a Level 4 defence equipment.
If he could manufacture this [Raven] Nano Combat Uniform, Yue Zhong’s subordinates would all gain a huge boost to their abilities. +3 to all attributes was equivalent to a total of 18 points of enhancement.
The reason why the Judgement Corps had been so domineering was partly due to these [Raven] Nano Combat Uniforms.
Yue Zhong held the [Raven] Nano Combat Uniform designs tightly as he thought to himself with a feverish passion: “Type 2 Mutant Beast blood eh? What a pity, I have not thought to harvest them in the past. Seems like I need to go hunt a few Type 2 Mutant Beasts!”
At this time, Ying Kaishan pulled Mauritius out of the room and reported: “Boss!! It’s done! He’s told me everything!”
Yue Zhong’s brows arched as he said: “Oh? Speak!!”
Ying Kaishang then proceeded to repeat whatever Mauritius had told him to Yue Zhong. Hearing it, Yue Zhong’s spirits were dampened, as though his heart was being weighed on by a huge stone.
Mauritius hailed from an organization called the Kingdom of God. It was a group that was made up of a number of European conglomerates that existed prior to the apocalypse, coming together when the apocalypse happened, with a united plan for true World Domination…
Chapter 215: Kingdom of God
CMT Group was among those conglomerates as well, and all these major corporations had huge amounts of assets as well as technology. They were spread out all over different countires, and had as many as over a million employees.
After the world has changed, countless leaders and army generals have become zombies. A large number of these corporate giants managed to survive however, and they came together and formed the Kingdom of God, with its unique religion and gained a foothold in many places.
Among these huge conglomerates, there were some who had control over satellites. And because of this edge, with the control of the satellites, the Kingdom of God could reach anywhere in the world.
Mauritius happened to be the envoy for the Kingdom of God based in Guangxi’s area. The Hong Triad was also a means that he created to enter and take control of Guilin City slowly. With the Hong Triad as a cover, he had been establishing and growing his power without stop, while patiently waiting for a chance. As long as Guilin City became unstable, he would make use of the opportunity to deploy the Judgement Corps and take over.
The Kingdom of God was a rigorous and secretive, with clear division of labor as well as adequate manpower. They were advanced in technology, and had over 3 million survivors under them, as well as an army size of 300,000. On one hand, they sought to unite and control the entire Asia region, at the same time, for the future, they have begun to make moves all over the world. Be it in Africa, North or South America, India, Japan, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, they had people establishing power and biding their time.
The city of Berlin, according to rumors, had been swallowed by them and became their main headquarters already.
In comparison, Yue Zhong had only about 200,000 survivors under him, and his army of 10,000 was separated in 2 different provinces. He could only manufacture rifle bullets and other light firepower. When compared to the Kingdom of God, Yue Zhong was basically no different from a beggar.
Yue Zhong had recently harbored the intent to unify the whole of China, however, there were simply too many people. In Guangxi alone, there were already 50 million people, and the zombies were also about 40 million. With that many zombies, subjugating the entire Guangxi region was going to be extremely difficult.
Furthermore, it was the apocalypse era now, and there were all sorts of characters about, everyone had their own ideals and ambitions. No one was willing to offer up their own establishments. Even Yue Zhong himself, if someone wanted to wrestle the bases he had painstakingly built up, he would not be willing to give up.
“My capital is still too small!!” Yue Zhong clenched his fists tightly and sighed. He was just an ordinary university student prior to the events of the apocalypse, and he had been slogging nonstop to reach where he was currently. As for the Kingdom of God, they were already established multinational companies that came together, sharing talents, technology and resources among themselves. The starting point of both parties was simply not on an equal level. Yue Zhong’s current achievements would still be nothing compared to them.
This Hong Triad was just a small pawn in their grand scheme of things, amongst their thousands of establishments. Even if Yue Zhong destroys it, it wouldn’t affect them much.
Yue Zhong adjusted his train of thought, and threw the looming threat of the Kingdom of God to the back of his mind: “Forget it! I’ll deal with it as it comes! I need to make the most of whatever I have now!! It’s best to live to the fullest!”
After conquering the Hong Triad, Yue Zhong had gained the set of designs for the [Raven] suits, as well as 3 battalions’ worth of equipment, 15,000 tonnes of rations, and a huge number of melee weapons.
At the same time, the rest of the subsidiary triads and territory came under the Green Stone Triad’s control.
When the surrounding triads saw Hong Triad collapsing, they also acted in a rush to snatch up territory, as though there was a precious feast, and everything of the Hong Triad was gobbled up cleanly.
Yue Zhong’s Green Stone Triad gained a huge footing, and in one leap, it became a huge triad of over 5,000 members. Many solo wanderers and Enhancers also requested to join the Green Stone Triad, adding on to their forces.
News of the Hong Triad’s downfall spread like wildfire, shocking the entire Guilin City.
The remaining 3 big triads, the Green Bamboo Triad, Scarlet Phoenix Triad and Heavenly Dragon Triad all bolstered their defences. They were extremely cautious and wary of this new contender that was filled with aggression and vicious tactics.
With Dan Hong acting as the backer behind Green Stone Triad, no one else came to cause trouble for the gang anymore.
Yue Zhong also made everyone within the triad undergo training to toughen themselves and sharpen their claws. Day in day out, he made use of militarized training regimes to push them like mad.
Without training, they would just be a motley bunch of hooligans, only after proper training would they resemble an army.
“Open up!” Yue Zhong came to a dark and dingy jail cell, and he ordered one of his soldiers.
“Yes! Boss!” The soldier took out a silver key and opened up the cell.
Yue Zhong strode into the centre of the cell, and looked at a burly foreigner, who was dressed raggedly and his hair in a disheveled mess.
Yue Zhong gazed at the man, who was Larman, and spoke slowly: “Larman! I’m Yue Zhong. How about working for me?”
Larman was an Enhancer of above Level 40, and had been one of the commanders of the Judgement Corps. He had the leadership and combat abilities. His blade skills could put him on par with Bai Xiaosheng who surpassed him greatly in speed. It was because he was no match for the combined efforts of Bai Xiaosheng, Ying Kaishan and Shang Lun, that was how he was captured alive.
Larman glanced at him: “I’m someone from the Kingdom of God, this you know. Yet you still want to recruit me?”
Yue Zhong laughed: “Not an issue! As long as you promise to become my subordinate, and be loyal to me. I have done my investigations, you’re not a white supremacist. Your character is upright, and you’re strict on yourself, and have never done anything to humiliate the fairer sex. Such a person, I admire, and can accept as my underling.”
Larman stared at Yue Zhong for a while, before shaking his head: “I won’t work for you! You should go!”
Yue Zhong glanced at Larman and spoke indifferently: “Larman, don’t tell me you don’t want to see your wife or son anymore?”
The moment he heard this, he seemed to turn into an enraged bull as he struggled against his chains with bloodshot eyes, and bellowed in rage at Yue Zhong: “What have you done to them? They’re innocent!!!”
Yue Zhong stared back and retorted coldly: “I’ve not done anything yet! However, as per military rules, they’re considered family members of captives. According to martial law, they would become slaves, and given to those who contributed. Since you’re not willing to work for me, I won’t force you. However, after today, your son and his future descendants, should there be no accidents, will become slaves to others for generations to come.”
Larman was thoroughly furious as he spat: “You devil!! You dare to cast my son as a slave!! Do you still have a moral code?!”
“Moral code! You don’t have the right to speak to me about that!” Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed coldly, and his tone became extremely chilly: “I’ve discovered over a dozen girls that have not even reached 12 years in your judgement corps facilities! There were even 7 corpses! Such beasts, and you dare speak to me about morality? What a joke! If you were so righteous, why didn’t you stop those bastards? Don’t spout bullshit like ‘I’ don’t know’!”
By this time, Larman’s expression had turned extremely pale, as he mumbled: “I didn’t know!! I truly didn’t know!! How did it come to this? Hooooow??”
It was not that Larman did not know, it was just that he did not care. He was after all, not the leader of all the foreigners. The true leader was Mauritius, and he had treated Chinese as garbage, and most of his subordinates had the same attitude.
Compared to the rest of the foreigners, Larman and a few others were considered decent, but they minded their own business and didn’t butt into other people’s matters. He knew a few of his fellow countrymen had raped women, but he didn’t know that there were actual deaths, and no one bothered to tell this pedantic soldier.
Yue Zhong glanced at Larman and turned to walk away: “Those men, I have chopped them in two! Maybe you might think that I’m brutal. However, to me, they deserved it, and this is the way I handle things around here! For protecting 6 of my countrymen, I can set your wife free! I’ll let her leave here alone. But you must be clear, in this world order, the moment she leaves my protection, a lady all by herself, would definitely be devoured with nothing left. I’ve said my piece, and since you’re not willing to submit to me, I won’t force you. You can stay here for your entire life, as a punishment for being my enemy!”
“Wait a moment!!!” Just as Yue Zhong turned around to leave, Larman’s voice sounded from behind him.
Larman spoke with resolution: “I’m willing to work for you!! Yue Zhong!! However, I have a condition. My blade will never be used against my fellow countrymen! If you want me to fight against them as enemies, I will never help you slaughter them!”
In order to protect his own wife and kid, Larman made the difficult decision to submit to Yue Zhong. With his character, the moment he decided on throwing in with someone, he would definitely give his all, and not think twice about it. That was why he had that condition.
Yue Zhong smiled faintly and agreed: “No problem!!”
After Larman agreed to help Yue Zhong, Yue Zhong handed control over the remaining 32 Judgement Corps soldiers to him. They had also agreed to submit to Yue Zhong. With the lead of their original commander, their combat abilities recovered to a certain degree.
Larman brought the soldiers and they swore fealty to Yue Zhong, causing the fighting ability of Yue Zhong’s subordinates to rise substantially. This group of Judgement Corps was enough to devastate even a company of soldiers.
When Yue Zhong had just finalized the arrangements, Gao Minghao sent the message to request for his help.
Chapter 216: The 4 Great Triads!
At the entrance of Guilin City, a huge vehicle fleet had assembled, and the atmosphere was bustling with excitement.
The hunting of a Type 3 Mutant Beast was a huge matter, and just the Green Bamboo Triad alone would not be able to cover the matter up. To ensure the success of the hunt, almost all the experts had been gathered.
Every part of the Type 3 Mutant Beast was definitely a treasure, as long as they successfully hunt it, they would gain countless benefits. If at that time, there were equipments dropped, they would also be likely to power up whoever picks it up.
A burly, middle-aged man with a cape on his back and his entire body decked in black tuxedo, his features defined and eye-catching, led 7 other subordinates as they came up to Gao Minghao and his voice rang out brightly: “Gao Minghao!! Long time no see!!”
When the other party saw the middle-aged man walking over, the 10 experts of Green Bamboo Triad standing beside Gao Minghao had a huge change of expression, their bodies turning rigid. They stared at the man with caution and alarm.
This man who was dressed in the black tuxedo was called Di Ya, and he was the chief of the Heavenly Dragon Triad. Although he looked like an easy-going hero, his temper was explosive, and he could just easily slaughter his enemies as and when he felt like it.
Gao Minghao returned the look, before exclaiming in an amiable fashion: “Di Ya! Long time no see!”
In this world, whose fist was bigger was the boss. Even a normal villager with no culture, after gaining strength, would be able to start something on his own and become the leader of a faction he established. It was not strange. As for people like Gao Minghao with the natural flair and charisma of a leader, not many were left.
Di Ya looked at his surroundings, and frowned, as he said loudly: “Is Ding Lei not here yet? What audacity! Women just can’t be punctual!! Cannot achieve anything, but good at spoiling things*!”
Right at this time, an absolute beauty with a killer body appeared, her delicate face seemed to be frosted over, and she was wearing a black leather suit, and emitting an extremely cold aura. She walked over as she stared daggers at Di Ya, coldly snorting: “Di Ya! Are you looking down on women? Shall we have a go? The Scarlet Phoenix and Heavenly Dragon, see who is the bumbling fool and who is capable enough?!”
This beauty who seemed to be the epitome of cold and who could freeze people with her looks was the chief of the Scarlet Phoenix Triad, Ding Lei. Beside her, there was a troop of ferocious looking female guards, who looked at men as though they were thrash. There were 20 of them, and while most of them were ordinary looking, their eyes were sharp and fierce, and their bodies muscular. Only 2 of them were beauties as well.
Di Ya looked Ding Lei up and down, taking in her incredibly hot figure, and teased: “Ding Lei! Why not, we have a huge war in bed!! Let’s see who wins, shall we? Hehe!!”
“Di Ya! Speak further if you want to die!!” Ding Lei’s eyes shot out a cold light, and she stepped forwards, disappearing from her position in an instant.
“Fast!! She has gotten faster since last time!!” Di Ya’s eyes flashed, as he raised his right hand and defended his right.
The black high heels landed viciously on Di Ya’s raised arm, knocking him back by 2 steps.
After an entire second, the rest managed to react, seeing Ding Lei standing in front of Di Ya.
Gao Minghao felt a chill as he stared at Ding Lei, his eyes narrowing: “What an insane speed!! She sure is worthy of the nickname Rapid Flying Phoenix! Genius dual-attribute Evolver!!”
Rapid Flying Phoenix was Ding Lei’s nickname. In Guilin City, amongst almost 900,000 survivors, naturally awakened Evolvers numbered only about a 100. Every single one of them could be considered geniuses.
And Rapid Flying Phoenix Ding Lei was a naturally awakened dual-attribute Evolver, a genius amongst geniuses. She had carved a way out in a male-dominated world through slaughter, and established a predominantly female Scarlet Phoenix Triad. Her strength was not a joke.
The moment Di Ya was forced back by 2 steps, the 10 soldiers beside him brandished their blades.
Di Ya growled and order as he raised his hand: “Don’t move!!”
Even if the 10 of them acted together, they would not be a match for Ding Lei. If they really acted against her, it might result in their deaths.
Ding Lei had been able to create a name for herself and established the Scarlet Phoenix Triad, it could be seen she wasn’t any merciful or weak opponent. The number of deaths at her hands had also reached the hundreds.
Di Ya smiled at Ding Lei: “My apologies! It was unbecoming of me! Shall we leave it at that?”
Di Ya had originally planned to provoke Ding Lei to test her strength. The moment he discovered that she had not remained the same, and instead, improved tremendously, he wasn’t willing to continue aggravating her and making an enemy out of her. It would spell disaster for him, as well as the Heavenly Dragon Triad.
Gao Minghao walked up and played the mediator: “Ding Lei! Treat it as giving me face, let’s forget about earlier! Di Ya’s also rash with his mouth you know that!”
Ding Lei withdrew her stance, and coldly snapped at Di Ya: “Di Ya, you’d better watch your trashy mouth! Otherwise, sooner or later, you’ll have to pay the price!” After saying this she turned and went back to her side.
Hearing those words, the gleam in Di Ya’s eyes turned cold multiple times over, yet his face still wore that casual smile. He waved his hands, and contained the temper of his subordinates who had been provoked by those words as well.
Di Ya glanced about, and did not notice any sign of Yue Zhong nor his members of the Green Stone Triad, and asked Gao Minghao: “The Green Stone Triad has guts eh? They dare to make us wait! Gao Minghao, I heard that the Elder Yue Zhong from there and your subordinate Hu Yi are good friends. How much do you know about him?”
Gao Minghao had a light smile on his face, not giving anybody any insight into his thoughts:” Hu Yi did not mention much to me! It’s the first for me also, knowing that his friend had such abilities, that they actually brought men and swallowed up the Hong Triad! They must be capable enough!”
Hearing Yue Zhong’s name, Ding Lei who was standing silently by one side, narrowed her eyes as well.
The Green Stone Triad that Yue Zhong established had become the focal point of the entire Guilin City. They had swallowed up one of the 4 Great Triads, the Hong Triad, and caused everyone to be wary of their own positions, at the same time, curious about this new contender on the scene.
Di Ya chuckled: “When Chen Hongye comes back with his men, and sees everything of his taken away, I wonder what his expression will look like? That Yue Zhong is lucky though, to think he actually had such a good opportunity. If Chen Hongye was back here, I don’t think he could have caused such a huge wave.”
To gain steady enhancement, staying back in the city isn’t a solution. Only by constantly heading out to hunt zombies and Mutant Beasts would there be chances to grow.
Therefore, there would always be Enhancers who would head out every once in awhile to strengthen and enhance themselves through hunting and fighting.
“Not cause a wave?” Gao Minghao laughed coldly in his heart when he heard that. He was extremely clear, that while Chen Hongye did bring a bunch of elites out to hunt, the defence of the Hong Triad back at base was not something to scoff at. Yue Zhong had still managed to break past everything and gobbled them up, it could be seen how powerful Yue Zhong was.
Gao Minghao and Di Ya had exchanged blows a number of times behind the scenes. He knew how Di Ya was innately, and hence, he didn’t think that Di Ya actually meant what he said.
Di Ya glanced at Ding Lei and added on: “Oh right! Ding Lei! I heard that Yue Zhong was a lolicon that knew no boundaries!! He would play with a young virgin every single day. Seems like he has already killed over 15 of them! Are you going to allow such a pervert to remain living on this earth?”
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and a woman’s fury would be 10 times more poisonous than a man’s. Ding Lei had carved a road of slaughter on her rise to prominence, and her methods were vicious. She especially hated perverts who preyed on younger girls, and those perverts would either be cut in two or tortured or had their genitals removed. Their deaths were exceptionally cruel. Hence, other than the nickname ‘Rapid Flying Phoenix’, Ding Lei had another well-known nickname: ‘Cold Witch’.
Ding Lei’s eyebrows arched, and she shot a cold glare at Di Ya: “Di Ya! Shut your trap!”
Di Ya guffawed, and continued: “True! After all, the Green Stone Triad is now one of the 4 Great Triads. Even the Rapid Flying Phoenix would need to think twice before making a move on someone else’s Elder, otherwise trouble might come knocking. Who knows, if the Scarlet Phoenix Triad were to be wiped out by the Green Stone Triad, our proud Rapid Flying Phoenix might just become like the Ice Fairy. Hehe!”
Di Ya had not finished, but his underlying meaning was clear, and cold.
In this world, being a female leader was extremely tough, when she was strong, no one dared to take advantage of her. However, the moment she fell from power, her outcome would definitely be a lot worse.
Ice Fairy was an exceptional female leader before Ding Lei grew in power, and her strength was unparalleled. However, she was tricked because of love, and was caught in a trap by a pretty boy. Her triad was then swallowed up and herself, in the arms of other men, leading a life that was worse than dogs, with utter humiliation and shame.
While heroes could not resist against beauties, likewise, numerous beauties had fallen at the antics of good-looking men. Human nature was like that, and there hasn’t been any exception since time immemorial.
With the tragic plight of the Ice Fairy as an example, Ding Lei did not believe in love, nor men, and killed them like dogs. In her rise to prominence, she had recruited countless female experts as well, and the only men in the Scarlet Phoenix Triad led slave-like lives, not a single one was above Level 10.
When Ding Lei heard ‘Ice Fairy’, the temperature around her body seemed to plummet a few more degrees, as her hand shifted, and an extremely sharp blade appeared within her hand. She stared at Di Ya and spat out coldly through gritted teeth: “Di Ya! One more word! One more word and you’ll be sorry!!”
Di Ya could perceive the amount of killing intent and hurriedly changed the topic, while still smiling: “Hehheh! I’m not speaking!”
Di Ya knew his words had touched a sore spot of Ding Lei, and the moment Ding Lei was provoked, she would explode out. Of course, there was a possibility where the line was not yet reached, but to him, it was still not going to be a nice outcome.
Right at this time, Gao Minghao’s pupils narrowed: “He’s here!!”
Ding Lei and Di Ya both swivelled, looking towards their back.
They discovered Yue Zhong as well as Larman leading the Judgement Corps, and he was flanked by Bai Xiaosheng, Mu Xiangling, Ning Yuxin and Xin Jiarou.
When Ding Lei’s gaze travelled to Mu Xiangling, she turned once more to look at Yue Zhong, this time, the look in her eyes became much colder.
Gao Minghao cupped his hands and smiled at Yue Zhong, welcoming him: “Yue Zhong! You’re here!”
Yue Zhong chuckled back and received his welcome: “Chief Gao! I’m here!”
Gao Minghao laughed out brightly, and spoke in a gracious manner: “What Chief Gao! Just call me Minghao! Aren’t we friends?”
On the surface, Gao Minghao’s treatment of others was very broad-minded, and he had charisma. A number of experts of the Green Bamboo Triad had been won over by his attitude and sincerity.
Di Ya eyed the ladies beside Yue Zhong with envy and coldly provoked: “So you’re Yue Zhong!! You truly are a lolicon eh!! Even on the battlefield, you brought a little loli, you really know how to enjoy yourself!”
“You’re seeking death!! Trash!!” Bai Xiaosheng, who was standing beside Yue Zhong, immediately lashed out, and his body flashed, disappearing from his position, appearing beside Di Ya, with the intention to slash at his head.
Di Ya was not prepared in the slightest, and as Bai Xiaosheng’s speed was insanely fast, in that short distance, Bai Xiaosheng could easily kill any Enhancer of Level 40.
In that moment of crisis, Di Ya displayed his prowess, reacting by taking a step back, and his right hand surrounded by a shield of tornado, blocking his right, intending to use that whirlwind defence to block that slash from Bai Xiaosheng, while he condensed a ball of whirlwind in his left hand, preparing to unleash a deathly blow at Bai Xiaosheng.
Just as Di Ya was about to attack, Bai Xiaosheng had already leapt back and appeared beside Yue Zhong, while still cursing out loud: “Old fart! Clean your mouth! The next time you speak out of line, this Daddy will chop you up!”
With that provocation, Di Ya’s temper flared, as he took a step forward, only to see Yue Zhong stepping forwards as well, blocking his way.
Yue Zhong glared coldly at Di Ya, his tone icy: “Old trash! You want to set the Heavenly Dragon Triad against us Green Stone Triad?”
While Yue Zhong was asking that, White Bones had also appeared beside Yue Zhong, preparing to engage Di Ya in a pincer fashion.
Facing that intense intimidation, Di Ya’s brain worked quickly, as he suppressed the fury in his heart, and dispelled the whirlwinds in his hands. He took a step back and glared at Yue Zhong: “Yue Zhong! I’m Di Ya, the chief of Heavenly Dragon Triad, your man actually dares to make a move on me! How do you intend to punish him?”
Yue Zhong eyed him coldly and retorted: “Why should I do that! You just insulted me. You, trash, insulted me, and the fact that I did not cut your tongue off is giving you enough face as it is!”
Chapter 217: Mutant Sparrow Flock!
Even if Di Ya had the abilities of the Mutant Teenage Ninja Turtles, upon hearing those words of contempt from Yue Zhong, he could not help flaring up: “Yue Zhong you!”
Yue Zhong continued in a challenging tone: “How? Do you want to have a go? If you want to! We can go right now!! Ming Hao and the chief of the Scarlet Phoenix Triad can act as witness!”
Di Ya’s mind was in a flurry, as the grim look in his eyes flashed by. He hesitated a while, and in the end, did not choose to engage Yue Zhong. He had no information on him, and did not want to die without knowing why.
Di Ya retreated, as he shot a look at Ding Leo and Gao Minghao: “Ding Lei! Gao Ming Hao! Are the 2 of you just going to stand there, and allow this insult to me from this Yue Zhong? If it’s like this, I’ll announce that the Heavenly Dragon Triad will back out from this hunt.”
Hearing his words, Ding Lei and Gao Minghao both had change of expressions. If Di Ya’s Heavenly Dragon Triad were to really pull out, then they would have no choice but to leave more experts back at base. Like this, the hunt of the Type 3 Mutant Beast would definitely increase in difficulty by countless times.
Gao Minghao stepped up and tried to mediate: “Yue Zhong! Treat it as giving me face! Each of yall take a step back, and let’s forgo this matter!”
Yue Zhong looked at Di Ya coldly, before retreating back to his side.
Mu Xiangling leapt onto Yue Zhong’s back like a little kitten, and giggled as she teased Yue Zhong: “Heard that? You perverted lolicon!! Hehe!! Now you’re famous oh~!! Big
Yue Zhong shot Mu Xiangling a look and said: “Mu Xiangling, if you’re going to be this playful, do you believe that I’ll leave you alone at home?”
This time, because Mu Xiangling had been pestering him non-stop, Yue Zhong had relented and brought her out. If there was a chance, Yue Zhong still wanted to try and make her into an Enhancer.
Mu Xiangling immediately scrambled down from Yue Zhong’s back and put on a docile and cute expression, saying: “Yes! I won’t dare anymore! I’m sorry! I will be good and listen!”
Yue Zhong frowned lightly, and was helpless against this little girl.
Mu Xiangling was extremely beautiful, and knew how to tease and be cute. She could act pitiful at times, and fake her crying, and basically any trick that most women knew, she could employ them perfectly. When it was time to be good, she was obedient, when she saw the chance to be mischievous she would leap on it. Yue Zhong could not bear to lecture her, and really was helpless.
Furthermore, Mu Xiangling was extremely smart, and picked up everything fast. Her talent was not lesser than the naturally awakened Evolver Yao Yao. Such an adorable loli was naturally liked by everybody, and she caused smiles everywhere she went. Even if she took some liberties, Yue Zhong did not take it to heart.
Gao Minghao looked all around him, before chuckling at Yue Zhong and said: “Since everyong is here! Let us set off!!”
Within Guilin City, even when all 4 Great Triads had already deployed most of their experts, the remaining smaller triads still did not pose too big a threat to any of them.
The fleet started to move, consisting of over 3,000 Enhancers and a few Evolvers, as they made their way into the distance.
Hunting Mutant Beasts allowed Enhancers to become stronger. Since Guilin City was considered safe and stable, and there was the army that had swept the nearby zombie hordes, this allowed for the Enhancers to frequently head out to hunt. If it was any other smaller establishments, surviving from the zombies would be already tough, not to mention hunting Mutant Beasts.
The strong became stronger! The weak became weaker! Such was the cruel way of the world.
That huge crowd of humans attracted the countless Mutant Beasts.
Before even reaching 10km after leaving Guilin City, the skies was suddenly filled with a black cloud of sparrows.
“They’re Mutant Sparrows!!”
Seeing the sky becoming dark with the Mutant Sparrow flock, a number of the troops on the ground reacted.
Since everyone had made ample preparations for the hunt, the moment they saw the Mutant Sparrow flock, they went into their vehicles for cover.
Those Mutant Sparrows were one of the common avian mutant beasts, and the best way of handling them was to take cover within huge vehicles. Not many people were willing to take on these critters, mainly because they were low level, high in numbers, and if one was not careful, they would be swallowed up by them.
The dense flock soon landed on the ground and a disaster seemed to strike at the humans gathering, causing the vehicles to be rocked about.
If there were no large vehicles, if these 3,000-over Enhancers didn’t give their all to defend, at least half would die being pecked alive.
In a hummer, Mu Xiangling was currently shivering in Yue Zhong’s embrace, her face pale white. She had just witnessed a Enhancer not making it in time into a vehicle, and in just 3 seconds, that enhancer was engulfed and became a skeleton.
At the same time, the Mutant Sparrows were ramming against the hummer, and the pattering noise was deafening. If the armor of the hummer was to break down, Mu Xiangling would not know what to do.
She glanced at Yue Zhong, and saw that his face was still serene, and her trepid heart regain some form of calmness: “He’s so collected! He’s really reliable, just a little too overbearing.”
In the midst of the Mutant Sparrow flock, White Bones was spinning about with its bone blades, grinding the Mutant Sparrows like a whirlwind.
Even though it seemed hopeless, those sparrows still attacked White Bones in droves, and they would be sliced and diced, but wearing White Bones’ Stamina down.
Right at this time, a line of fire suddenly shot out from one corner of the human gathering, entering the huge cloud of Mutant Sparrows, and a number of them immediately fell like rain, having been incinerated.
That fire seemed to be a signal, as immediately, wind blades, iron rocks, countless ice picks, vines, floating metal plates, and even summoned beasts appeared, and started assaulting those Mutant Sparrows.
Those Enhancers had grown impatient of waiting, seeing that the Mutant Sparrows were not leaving, and if they were to remain here for too long, they would definitely be buried here.
Yue Zhong saw the Enhancers rapidly casting their abilities and thought: “So many Enhancers! If only they were under me, how great that would be!!”
The more survivors there were, the more Enhancers that were bound to emerge. Amongst these 3,000 Enhancers, a number were even Evolvers, and most of these Evolvers did not belong to any of the 4 Great Triads, either establishing their own triads, or working as solo hunters.
If these 3,000 Enhancers were to be controlled by Yue Zhong, he had absolute confidence in dealing with Wuyan Hong and his Great Empire of Vietnam.
However, it was a pity everyone of them had their own ideals and thinking, if he wanted to get them to band together, it was going to be extremely difficult. Furthermore, those with capabilities were seldom willing to submit to another. In this apocalyptic world, the moment many gained strength, their ambitions also soared.
Under the relentless assault of those abilities, the body count of the Mutant Sparrows started to reach over 8,000, before the rest of the flock decided to flee.
Upon seeing that the Mutant Sparrow flock had finally left, many emerged from their vehicles, and started grabbing the bodies of those Mutant Sparrows. They were after all meat that was hard to come by. In Guilin City, meat was obtained like that.
Bai Xiaosheng came to Yue Zhong’s side and said: “Boss!! Shall we go and snatch some too?”
Yue Zhong shook his head and rejected: “No need!!”
Yue Zhong had brought along 20 huge trucks, but their purpose was to be stored with the bodies of Type 2 Mutant Beasts. He could not be bothered with these little critters.
Since the Mutant Sparrows were low levelled, their meat would not be able to strengthen survivors unlike the Type 2 Mutant Beast meat. However, to ordinary survivors, just the meat of a Mutant Sparrow was a hard to come by delicacy.
With the arrival and departure of the flock, they left 8,000 corpses. At the same time, 20+ Enhancers had been pecked into a pile of bones by them.
After picking up the meat, 200 of the Enhancers immediately withdrew from the operation, and brought the meat back to Guilin City. This amount of meat was enough for them to lead a comfortable life for quite a while, and they were naturally unwilling to risk their lives further.
After facing that attack, the fleet continued their advance, and along the way, there were a few other ordinary Mutant Beasts that were attracted by their scent. However, they didn’t amount to much against such a huge army of Enhancers.
After trekking for almost an entire day, the fleet finally came to their destination, a moderate sized mountain range.
After the apocalypse set in, the mountain range had undergone a huge change as well. There were mutant trees that grew everywhere, their trunks reaching up to 10m and above. All sorts of mutant vegetation and flowers covered the entire range as well, which became the resting grounds to various Mutant Beasts. From time to time, there would be mighty roars emitting from within the range that sent chills down one’s spine.
All hints of human constructions were already consumed and enveloped by mother nature, and most roads that were carved out previously were either covered by huge trees, or enveloped by the rest of the flora, turning the place into a overgrown, dilapidated scene.
In this mountain range, there was a large number of monstrous Mutant Beasts gathered, and this was the location that many expert from Guilin City chose to strengthen themselves.
Many Enhancers picked this place to continuously hunt and enhance themselves. Of course, hunting a Mutant Beast was no easy matter, and everyday, there would be Enhancers that die at the jaws of these Mutant Beasts, but there were those who had strengthened considerably through the training as well. It was a training heaven for the strong, and living hell for the weak.
Chapter 218: Mountain Range
t was as though they caught the scent of humans, because there was a rustling of the grass, before Mutant Rats the size of pigs came charging out of the forest, making a mad rush for the group of Enhancers.
“Level 18 Mutant Beast: Mutant Mountain Rats! They possess sharp teeth and formidable strength, which can bite through even steel!” The moment Yue Zhong saw those Mutant Mountain Rats, the information about them popped up.
When they saw the incoming horde of Mutant Mountain Rats, many Enhancers charged forwards with their weapons drawn. These were one of the weaker groups of Mutant Beasts residing in the range, and was perfect for low-level Enhancers.
“Xin Jiarou, go kill that!!” Yue Zhong pointed to one of the Mutant Mountain Rats that has charged over with the intention to maul them, as he threw a Dark Magic Blade to her.
“Yes!! Master!!” Xin Jiarou eyed the Mutant Mountain Rat, as her scalp turned numb. She was someone who had not even killed a chicken prior to the apocalypse. However, for the sake of her daughter, she still held up the Dark Magic Blade, her body trembling slightly as she faced the Mutant Mountain Rat.
Yue Zhong spoke behind her: “Don’t fear! As long as you calm yourself down, it is not your match! Your strength is way above it, but remember, no one will help you! Only you can help yourself. Even if you really died, I wouldn’t lend a hand.”
Yue Zhong had handed a lot of equipment to Xin Jiarou, and although she was only Level 1, her attributes were even higher than that of a Level 30 Enhancer. Once she learnt to get past the psychological barrier, slaughtering the Mutant Mountain rats wouldn’ t be an issue.
Xin Jiarou held the Dark Magic Blade tightly as she shivered, her heart full of fear.
The speed of the Mutant Mountain Rat was fast, like a galloping horse, and it charged towards Xin Jiarou with a fearsome aura, pouncing towards her viciously.
“Am I going to die?” Xin Jiarou was frightened stiff, and she could not move, her mind going blank.
“Mama!!!!!!” Just as Xin Jiarou was about to be knocked down by the Mutant Mountain Rat, the piercing scream from behind jolted her awake.
Xin Jiarou twisted with all her might, and the sharp claws barely touched her shoulder, but the paw managed to hit her shoulder, slapping her viciously, and a tremendous force sent Xin Jiarou sprawling to the ground.
Under that immense assault, Xin Jiarou’s shoulder was broken, and her heartbeat dulled, causing her to spit out a mouthful of blood.
Even with the protection of the Type 3 Mutant Beast hide, Xin Jiarou’s body constitution was too weak, and she could not withstand even the force of a Mutant Mountain Rat. This was the weakness of Agilty-based Enhancers, their DPS was high, and they could dodge well, but the moment they were hit, their defences were pitiful.
Mu Xiangling saw that her mother had fallen to the ground, and her face turned pale, as she struggled in Yue Zhong’s arms and screamed: “Mama!! Mama!! Mama!! Yue Zhong!! Yue Zhong-gege!! Please help, save my mother!! If you don’t, she’s going to die!!”
Yue Zhong’s eyes were cold as he held Mu Xiangling tightly, sealing her movements, and not allowing her to make any rash moves: “No! You’d better open your eyes and watch carefully! She needs to start relying on herself to get past this obstacle! In the future, if you want to become an Enhancer, you’ll also need to overcome your fear like this!”
After which, Yue Zhong glanced at Ning Yuxin as well, and she trembled slightly, knowing full well that Yue Zhong was talking to her also. If she wanted to become a powerful Enhancer, she had to overcome her initial fears.
When the Mutant Mountain Rat injured Xin Jiarou with its mid-air leap, the moment it landed, it turned around swiftly to launch a second attack.
“I can’t die here!! I can’t die!! If I die, what’s going to happen to Xiangling? I must live!!” With the threat of death looming over, Xin Jiarou’s eyes turned bloodshot and she managed to muster her potential.
Xin Jiarou saw the Mutant Mountain Rat flying over, and she exerted her maximum speed, enabling her to take in the movement of the Mutant Mountain Rat. She adjusted her body slightly in response, and used her right hand to sweep the Dark Magic Blade upwards to slice at it.
The Dark Magic Blade was extremely sharp, and the Mutant Mountain Rat had no way of defending against that hit, as it was instantly sliced in two, fresh blood and its innards splattered onto Xin Jiarou, making her look hideous.
“Congratulations on reaching Level 2……”
“Congratulations on reaching Level 5, you have gained 2 attribute points to be allocated!”
After killing the Mutant Mountain Rat, Xin Jiarou instantly soared to Level 5, at the same time, a skill book and 10 Survivor Coins dropped in front of her.
Xin Jiarou wiped the blood off the corner of her mouth, as she picked up the skill book and survivor coins and offered them to Yue Zhong. She spoke with a new hint of resolution in her eyes: “Master! I’ve accomplished my task.”
After killing the Mutant Mountain Rat on her own, Xin Jiarou had gone through an earth-shattering change, she has already shedded her image of a weak woman, and was on her way to becoming a strong female warrior.
Yue Zhong took out a packet of Life-Saving Grass and threw it to Xin Jiarou, before taking the skill book and survivor coins: “Eat this! Take a rest first!”
Xin Jiarou swallowed the packet of Life-Saving Grass and stood quietly beside Yue Zhong.
“Level 2 Skill: Treatment of Bone Injuries. Skill only allows bone injuries to be treated. No effect on other injuries. Usage expends 8 Spirit. Non-doctors, priests, paladins and other healer classes can only utilize skill once a day.”
“This skill, which of you wants to learn?” Yue Zhong held it up in front of Mu Xiangling and Ning Yuxin, as his own path was that of a combatant, and every skill had to be geared towards fighting. Furthermore, he possessed the Level 4 Regeneration Skill, hence he didn’t need another healing skill.
Mu Xiangling took a look at the book and immediately exclaimed: “Me! I want to heal my mum!!”
Without any hesitation, Mu Xiangling took it and immediately learnt it, when suddenly, her face fell and she groaned: “My Spirit is not high enough! I only have 7 points of Spirit, I can’t activate the skill!”
Yue Zhong thought for a moment, and then pulled out a Fireball Ring from his pocket and gave it to Mu Xiangling.
She immediately brightened up, and kissed Yue Zhong’s hands, as she put it on, and thanked him profusely: “Thank you Ge-ge
! Ge-ge is the best!!”
Upon equipping the Fireball Ring, Mu Xiangling immediately activated the healing skill, and a white light shot into Xin Jiarou.
Under the combined effects of the white light and the Life-Saving Grass, Xin Jiarou’s broken shoulder blade recovered quickly.
When the light dissipated, Xin Jiarou tested her shoulder gingerly, and her eyes flashed with joy, and reported to Yue Zhong: “Master! My body is healed, I can continue to fight!”
“Then go take care of that Mutant Mountain Rat!” Yue Zhong pointed at another one casually, as he told Xin Jiarou.
The Green Stone Triad was currently occupying a huge region, and the rest of the Enhancers did not dare get too close.
This was also part of the agreement, that the 4 Great Triads would claim the best spots and resources. They could monopolize them and thus, increase faster in strength and gain more Enhancers.
As for those solo wanderers and smaller factions, they could only gobble up the leftovers, or risk their lives by venturing further into the mountain range to hunt bigger Mutant Beasts.
After killing one Mutant Mountain Rat, Xin Jiarou had increased confidence and experience in dealing with them, and she pumped everything into Agility. She raced forth, and in a flash, appeared in front of a Mutant Mountain Rat.
The Mutant Rat pounced towards Xin Jiarou, who lightly dodged the attack, and slashed out with the Dark Magic Blade, instantly severing the unfortunate beast in 2. Compared to her earlier pathetic performance, it was as though she had completed some arcane transformation into another person, one who was extremely comfortable with hunting.
After killing the Mutant Mountain Rat in one slash, Xin Jiarou shot forwards and slashed down at another Mutant Mountain Rat that had just appeared.
The status as an Evolver coupled with the ample equipment that Yue Zhong gave her, with the various enhancements and her own talents she was well prepared. She started a killing spree and grew stronger without stop, as her level increased again and again.
Not long after, the Mutant Mountain Rat horde was wiped out by the huge gathering of Enhancers, with only 6 unfortunate fatalities had been ripped apart, and another 30 who suffered various degrees of injuries.
Once they cleared the horde, the huge troop decided to leave the mountain range temporarily, setting up camp at a nearby village about 5km away. They had already rushed for an entire day, and many were exhausted.
Furthermore, battling against the Mutant Beasts in the dark of the night was tantamount to suicide. At night, the humans suffered a decrease in their abilities, but the Mutant Beasts could employ more of their strength. There were very few like Yue Zhong who were suited for fighting at night.
“Master! My current level is 14!” Inside a room of the town, Xin Jiarou exclaimed with excitement and a little exhaustion to Yue Zhong.
Growing from a Level 1 to a Level 14 within a day, such a speed vastly outstripped Yue Zhong. However, this was because Xin Jiarou was an Evolver, and she had gained the boost of equipment from Yue Zhong, allowing her to reap such benefits and results in a day’s worth of combat.
Without all the various enhancements from the equipment, Xin Jiarou would not be able to kill so many Mutant Mountain Rats.
Upon hearing that Xin Jiarou had grown to become a Level 14 Evolver, Ning Yuxin’s eyes shone with envy. She had also killed a few Mutant Mountain Rats with the help of White Bones, but her enhancement level was only 7. Those aided forms of enhancement were slower, and thus the slower growth.
Mu Xiangling leapt into Xin Jiarou’s embrace and giggled: “My mama is the best! Hehe!”
Xin Jiarou hugged Mu Xiangling back as she ruffled her hair, eyes filled with motherly love.
Yue Zhong watched the 2 of them, and his face broke into a smile. Xin Jiarou had proved today, that his investment in her was not wasted. As long as she continued fighting on, she would quickly grow to become a terrifying existence.
“Yue Zhong!!! I want your life!!!” In the town, at a corner of an alley, a man who was dressed in a black cloak cursed out under his breath, his eyes filled with a look of utter hatred and venom.
Chapter 219: The Ravenous Beast Horde Attacks!
As the majority of the humans were falling into deep slumber, under the cover of the moonlight, groups of Mutant Beasts started gathering around the small town.
Amidst the dark patches of grass, multiple pairs of eyes that were shining green stared fixedly at the humans patrolling at the entrance, as though they were staring at delicious food.
The surroundings were suddenly filled with a soundwave that was beyond the human hearing range, and under the indication of the soundwave, those Mutant Beasts that were lying in wait suddenly made their move and charged towards the town.
The Enhancers of Guilin City had gone hunting this way countless times, and they had long since laid countless warning traps around the town. The moment the Mutant Beasts moved, almost all of the traps sounded at the same time.
The moment the alarms rang out, the warriors by the wall immediately shouted at the top of their lungs.
In just a few breaths, all the human warriors who were just entering sleep immediately got up and grabbed their weapons, as they charged towards the outside.
When hunting the Mutant Beasts, facing an ambush during the night was the most dangerous, the moment one was careless, it could spell doom for the entire party.
The warriors got up, and under the command of the various leaders, they quickly dispersed to the various key points of the town.
This small town was established by the countless parties of Guilin City to help with the hunting of Mutant Beasts. There were all sorts of traps laid around the town, and when several Mutant Beasts got close, they fell into these traps.
Yue Zhong had brought his experts from the Green Stone Triad to the front of the town at the first notice.
“So many Mutant Beasts!!” Yue Zhong looked and was shocked.
They discovered that beyond the perimeter, there were countless Mutant Mountain Rats. They charged forth with disregard for their own lives, filling up the holes and traps, making the ground even for the rest of the horde to advance.
Pretty soon, the Mutant Mountain Rats would be able to break past the defences and get closer to the town.
Earlier, when the factions had entered the town, they had allocated defence positions, all they had to do was to take charge of their own locations. As there were too many factions, this was the best solution to deal with any potential problems. Even the 4 Great Triads would only be able to instruct their own subordinates, as for the other warriors, they would not be able to command them.
Yue Zhong glanced at the densely packed horde of Mutant Mountain Rats, and ordered White Bones: “White Bones! Charge! Make sure that they’re all mutilated!! And try not to let them destroy the traps!”
Receiving Yue Zhong’s orders, White Bones hoisted its huge axe, and charged into the Mutant Mountain Rats’ horde.
As White Bones entered their midst, bone spikes started to shoot from various points of its body, piercing those Mutant Rats, sending them flying towards Yue Zhong’s side.
The low-levelled Enhancers under Yue Zhong immediately stepped forwards and used their Tang Replica Swords to finish off the Mutant Rats, gaining enhancement in the process.
Even Mu Xiangling was using the sharp Dark Magic Blade to help finish off the Mutant Rats.
With the help of White Bones, the subordinates of Yue Zhong managed to enhance themselves at an incredible speed, their levels rising rapidly.
The rest of the experts just stood and waited silently for his orders.
Yue Zhong had Night Enhancement Skill, and he could see that beyond the positions of the Mutant Mountain Rats, there were countless pairs of eyes that shone green, staring hungrily at the town. The moment he committed all his troops to fight, their stamina would dwindle, and it would be a problem to face the monsters behind.
After White Bones had evolved into the Second Order Dark Skeleton, its battle ability had rose to a fearsome level. It stood alone at the front of Yue Zhong’s defence, and was like an immovable mountain that blocked all advance! The moment those Mutant Mountain Rats got close, it would shoot a bone spike out and throw the unfortunate beast backwards, before it was slaughtered by the humans.
Yue Zhong observed a while, before ordering Xin Jiarou: “Go and kill as many as you can! Raise your level to 16 then come back! Add all your points to Stamina now!”
The level of these Mutant Mountain Rats were at 18, and to Xin Jiarou, they were the perfect hunting targets.
“Yes! Master!!” Xin Jiarou brandished her Dark Magic Blade and charged towards the Mutant Mountain Rats, easily entering their midst, and started a massacre.
At this moment, Yue Zhong still had White Bones holding the fort, and he could sit and relax, while helping his low level subordinates strengthen themselves.
However, near his spot, there was a weaker gang, and the when the Mutant Mountain Rats horde had used the corpses of their fallen comrades to fill up the traps, they managed to tangle with the small triad.
This gang was called the Knife Association, and they were made up of a chief and 20 other experts. Their chief Cai Mingliang was an Agility-based Evolver. The knives in his hands whooshed about, and numerous Mutant Mountain Rats met their end at his hands. However, the 20 experts beside him did not have decent levels, most of them hovering at Level 21 or 22, additionally, their equipment was inadequate, hence, there was growing exhaustion as they faced the relentless rat horde.
All of a sudden, 6 of the Mutant Mountain Rats charged at one of the experts wielding a Tang Sabre who had coincidentally just killed 2 other Rats.
“Ah!! Boss!! Save me!!” The expert had just sliced off the head of one Mutant Rat, when the other 5 immediately pounced on him, biting him with their razor sharp jaws, as he screamed out in agony.
“Wang Yue!!!” Cai Mingliang’s eyes turned bloodshot, and activated his skill, charging towards Wang Yue in a flash. As he sped along, he sliced the 16 Mutant Mountain Rats blocking his way. Fresh blood and innards splattered all over the ground in his wake.
Cai Mingliang arrived at Wang Yue’s side, and slashed 5 times quickly, slicing the bodies of the 5 gnawing Mutant Mountain Rats in twain.
“Wang Yue!!” Cai Mingliang howled in agony as he looked at Wang Yue, whose throat had already been ripped wide open by one of the Rats, leaving only a corpse.
“Boss!! Save Me!” Another Knife Association member screamed out this time, he had also just been accosted by 4 Mutant Rats, and their defence was starting to collapse.
Cai Mingliang’s body disappeared in a flash and appeared right beside that expert, instantly killing the 4 Mutant Mountain Rats.
“Save me!! Save me!! Ah!!!!”
However, Cai Mingliang was only one person, even if he gave his all to run about the battlefield, there was a limit to how much he could do, and he could only watch helplessly as his comrades died in front of him.
The vice-chief of the Knife Association Luo Shi sliced off the head of one Mutant Rat before turning to shout at Cai Mingliang: “Boss!! We can’t hold off any longer!! We will definitely die if this goes on! Let’s ask the Green Stone Triad for help!!”
Cai Mingliang panted heavily as he replied: “If we go now!! What if they demand for something that is hard to accept? What if he wants to swallow our Knife Association?”
Luo Shi hollered as he killed another Mutant Rat with difficulty: “Boss!! If this goes on, we’re all going to die!! If we die, what’s the point of the Knife Association?!”
“Boss! Help!!!” Another expert of the Knife Association screamed out, and was immediately pounced on by a few Mutant Mountain Rats, before being bitten to death.
Cai Mingliang witnessed yet another death of his subordinates, and gritted his teeth as he ordered one of the experts: “Hong Ming!! Go request aid from Green Stone Triad, say that we’re willing to join him, ask Yue Zhong to send some aid!!”
Everyone had a job and spot to defend, and no one could retreat without the 4 Great Triads’ orders. If any one faction or person dared to abandon his post, then anyone would be able to execute them later. Furthermore, upon return to Guilin City, the family members of the deserters would be killed without mercy as well.
Under such cruel laws, even if the road seemed helpless, those Enhancers had to fight on to the death. Otherwise, they would implicate their friends and families back at Guilin City.
Hong Ming quickly came to Yue Zhong’s camp.
“Damn!! They’re too strong! With such an expert in the Green Stone Triad, no wonder they became one of the 4 Great Triads!” When Hong Ming arrived at the campsite, he saw Yue Zhong commanding the lower level Enhancers to strengthen themselves, and the lone killing figure of White Bones on the frontlines.
White Bones alone could defend the location. It must be known that as Yue Zhong commanded Green Stone Triad, and since they were one of the 4 Great Triads, the location they had to defend was larger than most of the ordinary triads by at least 10 times.
White Bones had been enhanced 4 times, and evolved to the Second Order Dark Skeleton level. After its evolution, it was stronger than other Dark Skeletons by at least twice, its combat ability was extremely tyrannical, to the point where it could even take down a normal Type 2 Mutant Beast with only a fair amount of effort. It was considered even more dangerous than most Type 2 Mutant Beasts. However, in comparison, its Speed, Strength and Stamina was still lacking.
Hong Ming came to Yue Zhong and kneeled, as he kowtowed profusely: “Boss Yue!! I’m Hong Ming from the Knife Association!! Please send some reinforcements to save us! I’m begging you!!”
Yue Zhong eyed Hong Ming a little coolly: “Hong Ming! We had agreed beforehand on the defence zones! The Green Stone Triad is defending a location 10 times that of yours! I need my manpower here. Please hold on for awhile, I will send some men over later.”
Yue Zhong was well aware of the fact that the Knife Association had an Agility-based Evolver. With that Evolver, the Knife Association could hold out for at least another 20 minutes.
Yue Zhong had planned that after 20 minutes, when the Knife Association was down to their last bit of strength, Yue Zhong would then go and rescue them. That way, the Knife Association would have no strength to bargain for any part of the Type 3 Mutant Beast.
Hong Ming did not hesitate as he immediately offered: “Boss Yue, as long as you send men to save us! We from the Knife Association will be willing to join the Green Stone Triad, and become part of you guys!”
Yue Zhong’s tone immediately changed: “Great! Then I shall bring some men to help now!”
If the Knife Association were to join the Green Stone Triad, then the power in Yue Zhong’s control would naturally increase some more, therefore he was willing to save them now.
Yue Zhong immediately summoned Larman: “Larman! Come with me!”
“Yes, Leader!” Larman brought the ex-Judgement Corps as they followed Yue Zhong closely, making their way towards the Knife Association’s zone in haste.
Yue Zhong led his men and quickly slaughtered their way through the zone, only to see the remaining members of the Knife Association closely huddling in a circle, surrounded by a swarm of the Mutant Mountain Rats, desperately hanging on.
Yue Zhong heroically brandished his 2m-long Black Tooth Blade and charged into the Rat swarm. With every gargantuan swing, 4 or more of the Mutant Mountain Rats would lose their heads.
Facing these densely packed but low-level beasts, the Black Tooth Blade in Yue Zhong’s hands was the most effective weapon, as the area of effect was large, and he could kill many of them in a single swing.
“Charge!!” Larman bellowed as he pulled out his own Dark Magic Blade and shot towards the Mutant Rats.
The platoon of the ex-Judgement Corps warriors also pulled out their Tang Replica Swords and followed Larman’s lead as they charged towards the Mutant Mountain Rats. The strength of these warriors was their marksmanship, modern weaponry proficiency as well as experience. Their close-quarters combat was decent as well, and killing these Mutant Rats was not an issue.
On the other side, Cai Mingliang brought his men and they slaughtered their way through, both sides joining forces and forcing the Mutant Mountain Rats back.
Cai Mingliang came over in front of Yue Zhong, with a complicated gleam in his eyes, and he spoke solemnly. “Cai Mingliang greets Boss Yue! This time, it’s thanks to Boss Yue’s timely rescue, otherwise my brothers and I would have died here!”
Yue Zhong nodded slightly and replied: “I got it! Take your men! Let’s construct some barricades immediately!!”
Yue Zhong had brought along some tools as well.
To maintain the defence on Cai Mingliang’s side, the fortification required was definitely not little. The main reason why they were struggling was because they had underestimated the effectiveness of fortifications. They had grown complacent, and didn’t expect the forces of the Mutant Beasts to attack so fast, hence they had thoroughly suffered.
Whereas compared to Yue Zhong, everywhere he went, he would bring along the necessary materials and tools for fortification. A simple construction could potentially save the lives of countless warriors at the right time.
After they forced the horde back, Yue Zhong’s subordinates began nailing large steel beams into the ground. After they established a few stakes, they started tying a layer of sharp wires in between the stakes, and in a matter of minutes, a simple defensive structure was erected.
“Yes, Boss!” Cai Mingliang saw those simple yet effective structures, and his respect for Yue Zhong rose, before bringing his men to help out in the ongoing fortifications.
Chapter 220: Chen Hongye! Assasination Attempt!
The defences of the other parts of town were still tight, and with the protection of the numerous experts scattered throughout, the dense horde of Mutant Mountain Rats could not break through, instead getting slaughtered.
There were also parts where the Mutant Mountain Rats managed to overrun the humans, and they swept the place clean of the Enhancers that were stationed there.
The number of corpses of Mutant Mountain Rats had reached 3,000, and over 60 Enhancers had been killed as well.
Without giving the humans a chance to rest, the Mutant Beast horde lying in wait behind the Mutant Mountain Rats began their assault.
The Mutant Beasts waiting behind the Mutant Mountain Rats were actually Mutant Civets. These mutant beasts were Level 21, their bodies as tough as wolves, and claws extremely sharp. Behind the Mutant Civets, following closely behind were Mutant Leopard Cats. Behind them were Mutant Vietnam Golden Monkeys, Mutant Pangolins, and others. The entire horde was making their way closer, like an army of beasts.
Yue Zhong stared at the incoming horde, and his expression fell: “Damn it!! How can we defend an attack on such scale?”
In the dark of the night, only people with night vision capabilities like Yue Zhong, as well as some of the Evolvers could see the status of the town. Whoever saw the incoming horde, would feel their scalp go numb from fear and desolation.
The moment the horde pushed into town, the battle exploded into full blown proportions.
Ice spikes, sword qi, blade beams, fireballs, wind blades, ground spears, all sorts of abilities exploded out, exhibiting their might at the front lines. Countless Mutant Beasts were instantly pulverized by the numerous abilities raining on them, but at the same time, there would be unfortunate humans that died at the vicious claws and swipes of the Mutant Beasts.
Yue Zhong had recalled White Bones and Xin Jiarou back, ordering Larman and his troops forwards with their modern weaponry to unleash carnage on the Mutant Beasts charging towards them.
Yue Zhong was worried that they would encounter a huge horde of Mutant Beasts, and had brought along 10 127mm heavy machine guns.
The 10 127mm machine guns aimed towards the horde of monsters, and let loose a volley of fearsome firepower. With the dense rain of bullets, a number of Mutant Beasts instantly got punched full of holes even before nearing the defence post. Facing that type of firepower, only those Mutant Beasts above Level 40 would be able to defend against it with their bare flesh, as for the rest, they could only die.
“What do we do? If this continues on, we will definitely die at the jaws of these brutes.” Yue Zhong eyed the situation as he racked his brains.
Yue Zhong had only 50,000 rounds of ammunition in his possession, and if they continued to fire at this rate, the bullets will run out sooner or later. And once it came to close combat, his subordinates would definitely face defeat.
Right at this time, a giant mouse of about 5m with scales that looked like rocks leapt out from the horde, squashing a number of other Mutant Beasts as it made its way towards Yue Zhong’s area in a frenzy. The bullets of the heavy machine gun only served to bounce off that insane armor.
“Level 53 Strange Beast: Type 2 Mutant Mountain Rat. It possesses an extremely hard carapace and monstrous strength.”
“Prepare the grenade launchers! Fire!!” Larman saw the Type 2 Mutant Mountain Rat and hollered at the top of his lungs.
6 soldiers handling the grenade launchers stepped forwards, aiming at the Type 2 Mutant Mountain Rat and fired.
A number of the rockets all exploded on the Type 2 Mutant Mountain Rat, and those explosives that could easily blast an armored vehicle only resulted in 2 very small bloody holes, not even endangering the Type 2 Mutant Mountain Rat’s life. On the contrary, it only served to enrage it even further, as it released a stronger killing intent, its eyes turning bloodshot and charged at Larman and his subordinates.
Seeing the Type 2 Mutant Mountain Rat rushing over, the faces of Larman and his subordinates fell, if the Type 2 Mutant Mountain Rat successfully reached their site, they would definitely die, if not injured heavily.
At this time, White Bones took a step forwards, as a number of bone spikes appeared, and propelled itself onto the head of the Type 2 Mutant Mountain Rat. It then condensed a sharp bone drill, plunging it deep into the wound that resulted from the explosives earlier.
The sharp bone drill penetrated the wound of the Type 2 Mutant Mountain Rat, and started to spin rapidly, causing the wound to enlarge. The sharp bone drill then proceeded to mash the brains of the Type 2 Mutant Mountain Rat into paste!
The moment the brain was pulverized, the Type 2 Mutant Mountain Rat slumped to the ground, dropping 2 Skill Books and an amount of Survivor Coins. The 2 Skill Books were a Level 3 Stamina Consolidation and Level 3 Agility Consolidation.
The moment the Type 2 Mutant Mountain Rat died, the remaining hundred some Mutant Rats dispersed and started to retreat in various directions. Within the town, there were still a large number of Mutant Leopard Cats and Mutant Civets that happened to be the natural predators of the Mutant Mountain Rats. If it wasn’t for the threat of the Type 2 Mutant Beast, the rest of the Mutant Mountain Rats inside would have long since escaped as well.
“This!!! Maybe we have a chance!!” Yue Zhong saw the dispersing Mutant Mountain Rats, and his eyes shone brightly.
At this time, a shadow flitted over like a whirlwind, pouncing on White Bones, knocking it to the ground, as it opened its huge jaws and bit at its neck. “Level 56 Mutant Beast, Type 2 Mutant Civet!”
Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed with a strange glint as he changed towards the Type 2 Mutant Civet.
Just as the Type 2 Mutant Civet opened its huge jaws, White Bones immediately shot out a sharp bone spike towards the throat of the Mutant Civet.
At the same time, a bone blade shot out from White Bones’ body, locking the limbs of the Type 2 Mutant Civet.
The Type 2 Mutant Civet had a terrifying speed, as it dodged the killing strike from White Bones, but its movement was tied down by White Bones very same maneuver.
Yue Zhong shot towards the attacking Type 2 Mutant Civet like an arrow, his right hand condensing the domineering Devil Flame Spear, striking it at the Type 2 Mutant Civet. As he lunged into his attack he penetrated its head, incinerating the brains of the Type 2 Mutant Civet.
The Type 2 Mutant Civet slumped to the ground, becoming a corpse, at the same time dropping a green-coloured treasure box and Survivor Coins.
“Congratulations on reaching Level 53, you have gained 2 attribute points to be allocated.”
With the death of the Type 2 Mutant Civet, the rest of the Mutant Civets also dispersed, retreating towards the distance.
Yue Zhong’s side had a large number of Mutant Civets, and when they scattered, the pressure on his subordinates were alleviated a lot.
Yue Zhong relaxed a little after killing the Type 2 Mutant Civet, and could feel the chance for victory: “As expected, one must kill the Type 2 leaders. Otherwise, we would not stand a chance against these hordes of Mutant Beasts.”
Just when Yue Zhong was starting to relax, a dark shadow charged out suddenly from a dark corner, and a blade came sweeping downwards as though it was splitting the skies, slashing towards Yue Zhong.
As it was the moment where Yue Zhong had just let down his guard, he was caught unprepared, and just as his Danger Perception warned him of the danger, the black blade had already appeared in front of him.
Yue Zhong activated his Shadow Steps, dodging towards the right, and raising his left arm to defend.
The black blade came slashing down on Yue Zhong’s left hand, and went through the Type 3 Mutant Beast hide, sending Yue Zhong’s left arm flying, fresh blood splattering.
At the same time, a fearsome blade energy was sent through Yue Zhong’s wound, knocking him backwards 6 or 7 metres, as he spat out a mouthful of fresh blood.
“Larman! I’m Chen Hongye! Quickly help me kill Yue Zhong!! As long as we kill him! We can work together to rebuild the Hong Triad!!” As the black blade beam dispersed, a middle-aged man was revealed, holding a Level 4 Treasure Black Swiss Blade. His looks were refined, but his expression was currently grim.
This middle-aged man was Hong Triad’s chief Chen Hongye. The earlier took all of Chen Hongye’s Spirit, expending a huge amount of Stamina as well. That strike was a Second Order Skill: Shattering Cut.
The power of the Shattering Cut was truly without equal, even slashing apart a Type 3 Mutant Beast Hide. However, its consumption was likewise enormous, almost expending all of Chen Hongye’s Stamina and Spirit. He had no choice but to ask Larman for help.
Just as Chen Hongye leapt out, from a small room at the back of the town, 20 other experts suddenly burst forwards, they were precisely the 4 Elders that Chen Hongye brought out, along with their subordinates.
At this point, there were only White Bones, Larman, his subordinates as well as Cai Mingliang and his men from the Knife Association. If Larman was to turn on Yue Zhong now, it was possible that the Knife Association would revolt as well, then Yue Zhong would truly be in danger.
Chen Hongye had waited a long time for this chance. If Yue Zhong had stayed at his own site, Chen Hongye would not have succeeded. He had been patient, and finally gotten the golden opportunity to strike, and his single strike had removed Yue Zhong’s left arm, creating possibilities.
Hearing Chen Hongye’s words, Larman’s subordinates were riled up, and looked to Larman. They were only willing to listen to this commander who had principles, but mostly because he was their commander after all.
