God and Devil World - Chapter 311-320
“I surrender!!” The baldy did not hesitate to scream out his choice, as he knew he had no way of standing up against these fearsome experts. He still wanted to live.
The moment the baldy surrendered, the rest of the militants began to throw their weapons down. They were already collapsing from the rate at which Bai Xiao Sheng had almost eliminated them.
Yue Zhong eyed those militants as they were marched out of the forest towards them, before he turned to look at the middle-aged man coldly.
Being looked at by that piercing gaze, the middle-aged survivor began to shake uncontrollably, as he kowtowed: “Sir!! Sir!! Please!! I was forced!! I was forced by them!! Please spare my dog life!! Please!!”
Chen Yao eyed the middle-aged survivor and spoke coldly: “Tell me your background!”
“Yes!!” The middle-aged man kowtowed profusely before he proceeded to explain.
It turned out that this middle-aged survivor was called Zhang Xiao, and he was an ordinary mechanical engineer prior to the apocalypse. After the apocalypse happened, his profession was not as popular, since farming and other sort of manual labour was sought after. Hence, his circumstances had been dire ever since, until he met this bunch of bandits, and became their bait, to lure kind-hearted souls to fall into the trap set by these bandits.
However, they never imagined for a huge shark like Yue Zhong to bite, causing them to suffer, on top of not being able to get anything.
The bald leader was called Hu Fei, and he was a Level 23 Enhancer. However, he had never learnt any skills, and relied on enhancements to improve his body attributes.
Since the apocalypse, a year had passed, and the chances of drops from killing zombies and monsters were decreasing rapidly. In fact, to gain any skill book, one had to hunt at least a high level Mutant Beast or high level zombie. However, these were not easy existences to deal with. Plus, since Hu Fei had missed the best time to become stronger, without any backing, it became even harder for him to get strong.
Zhang Xiao pleaded sincerely with Yue Zhong: “This lowly servant knows the area well. Please spare this lowly servant’s life, and this lowly servant is willing to lead the way.”
At the initial stages of the apocalypse, Zhang Xiao had still maintained an aura of a know-it-all. However, when he accidentally offended the leader of a small faction, he had been thrown into a pit to wallow for one day. Ever since, he had lost his arrogance and was willing to stoop to any level, foregoing any backbone or self-pride just to survive.
Yue Zhong then asked: “Are you clear on what factions are there around here?”
Zhang Xiao began to ramble on: “Yes! Yes! I know them all. At about 50 miles from here, Mao County is the territory of the Greater China Alliance. West of here, about 40 miles, there’s the all-female Snow Palace. And about 60 miles north of here, there’s the Thousand Hero Alliance. There are also a few other mid-sized factions like the Green Wolves Triad, Tiger Head Triad, Huge Blade Triad, Small Blade Association…:”
Yue Zhong’s thoughts grew when he heard: “So many factions!”
With the huge Greater China Alliance, the Snow Palace, and the Thousand Hero Alliance, all the other factions would at least have 500 or 600 survivors per faction. This meant a whole resource out there for him.
There were many in China who had the habit of pulling together scattered groups to form gangs. The moment things went to shit, there would be all sorts of random factions appearing. Such ambitious little warlords would also jump out at the chance.
When Yue Zhong heard about the Greater China Alliance again, he sank into his own thoughts: “The Greater China Alliance eh? Seems like we have some old ‘friends’!”
The Greater China Alliance had left a deep impression with Yue Zhong back during his Gui Ning period. At that time, their power was decent, but they were led by bumbling fools and thrashes. That was why it was easy for Yue Zhong to have defeated them. However, while he had crushed half of their strength, the remaining half was not a faction Yue Zhong and his hundred-plus soldiers could deal with at this point.
Yue Zhong looked out at the snow-covered plains and sighed: “What a pity! Damn this weather!”
If it wasn’t for the weird weather, Yue Zhong would be able to lead his entire army to just steamroll their way across the country. With the 800,000 people at Guang Xi, Yue Zhong was definitely the strongest in this area.
Right at this time, the weather suddenly turned dark. A cold and harsh wind began to blow, as snowflakes began to fall.
Yue Zhong’s face fell as he shouted: “No good!! Everyone, heed my command! Immediately head to the town to wait out this snowstorm!!”
With the skies turning dark, and the roaring of winds, as well as snowflakes, these were all signs of a snowstorm or worse, a hailstorm.
Without a satellite, Yue Zhong had no way of predicting the weather in the next few days. However, he could rely on his experience to deal with it.
After the apocalypse, the weather had really turned unpredictable. Originally, Guang Xi was a region that would not snow, yet now, there were various hailstorms of different magnitudes. Even the smallest one could cause a number of trees to be uprooted. A huge one would be able to even destroy a building.
The moment they heard Yue Zhong’s words, everyone’s faces fell, and began to scramble onto their vehicles, driving towards the town.
The moment they just go on their vehicles, the entire sky had turned completely overcast, and the snowflakes were becoming bigger. Some hail began to fall on the vehicles, resulting in loud “plik plak” sounds.
As everyone rushed for the town, the might of the hailstorm began to increase exponentially, as a few trees were uprooted and began to soar through the air, threatening to crash into their vehicles.
“Shit!” Yue Zhong eyed the incoming trees, his expression turning ugly. If they were hit by that tree that was at least a dozen metres long, the jeep would be overturned.
With a thought, a huge nether hole appeared in mid air, as a sharp bone spike shot out from the hole, piercing the tree.
The moment White Bones stepped out from the nether hole, a violent gust blew, and swept it up to the sky.
White Bones shot out 2 sharp bone spikes with its hands towards the ground, but before they even hit the ground, it was blown at least a hundred metres up into the skies.
Witnessing this, Yue Zhong’s heart ran cold, if it was him, after falling from that height, even if he used all his skills, he would at the very least be heavily injured, if he wasn’t already dead.
Behind, the bus began to tremble, and Hu Fei brought his men to escape from the bus. This was the only chance they had, and since they didn’t know Yue Zhong and wasn’t clear on his personality, they weren’t willing to take chances. They would rather leave it up to fate.
The moment Hu Fei and 4 of his men just exited the bus, another violent gust blew past them, causing 6 tree trunks to knock into their bodies. With the sudden and tremendous impact, they were all knocked into the sky, spitting blood out of their mouths.
Seeing that, the rest were stunned and did not dare to get out, instead staying docilely inside the bus.
After White Bones was blown away, a huge tree struck the jeep that Yue Zhong was on.
At that moment, the jeep was sent flying slightly though the air, before tumbling a few rounds due to the winds.
“Leader!! Are you alright!!” From behind, Li Shi Min used the radio in the other vehicle to communicate after seeing the jeep tumble.
“Don’t mind me! Continue to rush forwards!! Quick into the town! This is an order!!” Yue Zhong roared back.
In the face of nature, humans were truly still so vulnerable. Even if Li Shi Min and the rest rushed over, they would not be able to help Yue Zhong.
“Continue!!” Bai Xiao Sheng gritted his teeth and passed the order, as the vehicle fleet continued their mad rush towards the town. Once they entered the town, and hid within the buildings, they would then be safer.
The huge violent gales of winds caused a large amount of snow to fall on the ground, and soon, a thick layer of snow had covered the entire area. At the same time, the speed of increase in the layer of snow could be seen with the naked eye.
Under those conditions, Yue Zhong and the rest in the jeep would be buried in the snow.
“I’ll have to go out!” Yue Zhong immediately leapt out the jeep.
“Be careful!!” From the car, the worried voices of Chen Yao, Xin Jia Rou and Ning Yu Xin sounded.
When Yue Zhong leapt out the vehicle, a cold and harsh gale blew towards him, causing his body to feel slightly cold. Due to his increased body attributes and constitution, the current cold was not threatening to him yet. He sucked in a deep breath and grabbed the jeep, before flipping it over with his 9-times Strength.
Just as he was about to board again, another violent gust swept through the area, bringing with it a number of uprooted tree trunks.
Chen Yao gritted her teeth and revealed a flash of green in her eyes, as a number of vines appeared instantly to defend against the incoming assault.
Backed by the power of the wind, the trees carried a mighty force and as they slammed into the shield formed by the tree vines, the impact caused her to spit out a mouth of fresh blood, her face turning slightly pale.
In such weather, Chen Yao’s ability suffered a huge decrease in efficiency. If they were in the forest, then it would be a different story.
“You guys go on ahead… I’ll handle the rest.” Yue Zhong pulled out his 2m-long Black-Tooth Blade and hollered to the rest. With a casual wave, he sliced the incoming tree trunks apart.
Chen Yao had been a leader before, and she wiped the blood from the side of her mouth and started the jeep: “Go!!”
Yue Zhong activated his Shadow Steps, as he charged alongside the jeep to its front, slashing out once in awhile to deal with the tree trunks. Every step he took felt extremely tedious. The harsh cold wind sliced his skin. If it wasn’t for his toughened body, his blood would have long since frozen over. His Stamina was slowly being depleted in this weather.
Ning Yu Xin looked at the man braving the dangers in front of the jeep, and a look of warmth passed in her eyes. She knew that this man was lacking in many ways, but when the situation called for it, he was willing to shoulder every and any problem. Such a man was already extremely rare in this apocalyptic world. Her heart was already moved by Yue Zhong, and as she watched the back of her man, her legs twisted slightly, she was obviously wet.
Under his protection, the jeep managed to enter the town with difficulty. The moment it reached the town, the effects of the hailstorm would be slightly bearable, due to the structures around dispersing the winds.
Right as Yue Zhong prepared to enter the town, a dozen landscape trees by the entrance were uprooted by the strong winds and flung towards the jeep.
If it were just Yue Zhong himself, he would be able to dodge those incoming projectiles easily. However, at this time, he couldn’t afford to do so, and used his body to shield the jeep, the Black-Tooth blade in his hands slashing out towards the trees.
With the sword shadows shooting out in a fury, the trees were all chopped up in pieces. However, because he had expended much of his stamina earlier in braving the storm, he was struck by a stray tree trunk, knocking him to the ground.
The next instant, a strong gale blew and brought Yue Zhong along with the pieces of debris into the sky.
“No!!!!” As Ning Yu Xin watched Yue Zhong being swept into the sky, she screamed out in a wail. She had just truly felt herself falling hard for him, and felt so secure, and the next moment, he was taken by the storm. It was too cruel.
Chen Yao glanced at Yue Zhong with a complicated gleam, and gritted her teeth as she continued to manoeuvre the jeep towards the town. She might have been naive and innocent when she first left school, but through her various experiences, especially in Vietnam, she had matured and grown. She was not rash anymore.
Yue Zhong on the other hand was brought up towards higher altitudes, reaching a 100m height. In the skies, the temperature was freezing, and even with an Endurance 10 times that of a normal person, Yue Zhong felt the chill.
Forced by the freezing temperatures, Yue Zhong had no choice but to activate his Devil Flames, as a layer shrouded him, providing him with warmth.
It was just that amidst the harsh and merciless weather, the usage of his Devil Flame caused his Stamina to be depleted fast and its effect little. Barely 5 seconds, it was snuffed out from the violent winds.
Like Chen Yao and her Plant Manipulation, Yue Zhong’s Devil Flame suffered greatly in the snow.
Within the storm, Yue Zhong had equipped himself with the Kabuki Mask, covering himself from head to toe. Even so, the cold seeped in from the gaps in his clothings, chipping away at his body temperature. His hands were almost frozen solid.
Left without a choice, he could only cast his Devil Flame for another 5 seconds, warming himself up. Otherwise,he would be frozen rock solid.
Yue Zhong was blown for quite a distance, before the winds started to slow down.
“Chance!!” Yue Zhong felt the winds subsiding and immediately activated his Gravity Manipulation. A strong gravitational force weighed down on him, increasing his weight by two-folds.
He then descended like a falling boulder.
After a certain height, he activated his Gravity Manipulation again, changing his weight to half its original. His descent began to slow down. When the winds brought him up, he would double his weight again, ensuring that he kept on descending.
Yue Zhong had truly expended much of his Stamina and Spirit, having utilized the Gravity Manipulation 8 times, before exhausting himself. He then dropped straight from a height of 30m.
When he landed on both legs, a terrifying force traveled up from below, instantly shattering both of them. The excruciating pain and impact caused him to crumple onto the ground.
“I’ve become a cripple again!” He chuckled bitterly, swallowing a Life-Saving Grass and began to crawl with his hands towards the distance.
Most ordinary people would require at least a 100 days to recover from something like this. For Yue Zhong, due to his Regeneration ability, coupled with his high Vitality, it would take at most a single day to return to his tiptop condition.
The area he had landed was still experiencing some strong winds,but fortunately, it was not too violent or dangerous. However, Yue Zhong didn’t dare to be careless, and continued to drag himself. He had expended all his strength, staying at one location was dangerous.
The summoning of White Bones through the Nether Hole also had a cooldown, and Yue Zhong had no means of summoning it out yet.
In the snowstorm, Yue Zhong’s fingers were like hooks, as they dug into the ground, dragging himself forwards without stop. He definitely did not want to die out in the snow.
After some time, goodness knows how long, he finally came across an unknown town, and his eyes lit up. Mustering the remainder of his stamina, he dragged himself there.
The various houses were all closed, their windows and doors shut tight. A number of cool and indifferent faces peered out the windows, looking at Yue Zhong without a hint of pity. No one wanted to let him in. They just wanted to see if this cripple was a zombie or not.
In this apocalyptic world, where ration was precious, the various families were naturally less willing to hand out any.
Yue Zhong did not beg as well. He just wanted to look for a place to hide from the storm. As long as he could rest properly for one night, he wouldn’t be afraid of anything.
Within a such a town, there would usually be some run down buildings, and those were Yue Zhong’s targets.
Right at this time, a door suddenly swung open, as a young woman stuck her head out and looked at Yue Zhong, pity flashing in her eyes: “Do you want to come in?”
Yue Zhong eyed the young woman warily. In this apocalypse, most humans were selfish, and with the problem of scarce food, some people were even forced to resort to cannibalism. Yue Zhong had come across numerous factories processing human meat. He did not want to become someone else’s dinner.
However, Yue Zhong did not discover hunger nor greed in her eyes, and he nodded silently, before crawling into the house.
The moment he went in, she closed and locked the door.
A slight warm current was circulating within the room, allowing Yue Zhong’s body to recover from its cold state. It was practically heaven compared to outside. Although the room was still cold to normal people, to Yue Zhong and his insane body constitution, it was good enough.
After he entered, he silently crawled to a corner and eyed everywhere else with a guarded look.
He discovered about 8 children of different ages, and the young woman who let him in and another housewife of about 35 or 36.
The young woman had a slightly oval-shaped face, wheat-coloured skin, and a skinny figure. Her looks were ordinary, and nothing could be said about her figure. She was even incomparable to the slightly older housewife.
10 of them squeezed in that small house, and they looked at Yue Zhong with curiosity.
In truth, anybody with broken legs were considered to be having both legs amputated. In such an apocalypse, doctors were a rarity, even if one was found, if it didn’t happen to be an orthopedist, it was hard to treat such a case.
“This is for you!” A 13 year old boy with blond hair handed Yue Zhong a bowl, his expression slightly unkind.
Yue Zhong eyed the small bowl and noticed a pitiful amount of water and gruel, and there was even a slight rancid smell.
“Thank you! But it’s ok!” Yue Zhong shook his head, and replied in a raspy voice.
That little blondy coldly snorted, and drank everything up before laughing: “Pei! You don’t know how to appreciate. Teacher Wei, you shouldn’t have cared about this cripple. Look at how big his head is, he looks down on gruel.”
The housewife shot a look at little blondie and scolded: “Du Qiang, come here. How did I teach you, you can’t laugh at others. It’s rude.”
Du Qiang’s eyebrows arched as he smiled coldly: “Rude?”
“Open the door!! Open the door!! You better open the door for this daddy!!” Right at this time, an enraged voice resounded, together with urgent pounding on the door.
Hearing that voice outside, the expressions of everyone in the room immediately changed, even the young girl who let Yue Zhong in looked towards the housewife.
Teacher Wei’s face turned dark, before saying helplessly: “Go open it!”
The young woman hesitated before going.
Following a gust of cold wind, a 1.74m tall and muscled man stepped in. His features were somewhat twisted, and his facial hair disheveled.
“It so fricking cold! Why did you guys take in another cripple? Shit! You guys can’t even take care of yourselves and you want to help these useless shits!” The middle-aged man swore when he saw Yue Zhong in the corner, cursing Teacher Wei.
Teacher Wei kept silent, accepting his tirade of insults without replying.
The middle-aged man then said impatiently: “Forget it! If you want to be crazy, it’s not my problem. Come, let’s fuck.” He then proceeded to take off Teacher Wei’s clothes without caring for the people around.
Seeing this, there were various expressions on the children’s faces, some fear, some hurt, some were excited, and some were curious.
Little Blondie’s face was exceptionally ugly, as he gritted his teeth, and a look of pain and helplessness flash in his eyes. He turned away.
Teacher Wei did not struggle nor resist, and allowed the man to brazenly feel her up and remove her clothes. All she did was ask mildly: “Where’s the ration?”
“Here!!” The middle-aged man was impatient and threw out a bag, before licking her exposed neck, turning aroused.
The young woman who had let Yue Zhong in immediately took the bag to check its contents, before hugging it carefully. Her eyes were filled with sadness and helplessness as she watched the middle-aged man sprawled atop Teacher Wei’s body and doing all sorts of things.
Right as the man was about to remove his trousers, his ‘gun’ erect and prepared to ‘fire’, an actual bullet penetrated his leg, resulting in a small hole.
The man slumped down to the floor in fright, looking towards Yue Zhong in the corner with fear.
In the room, everyone’s attention was drawn to Yue Zhong, their gazes fixed on the gun in his hands.
Yue Zhong stared at the man with a rising killing intent. That Teacher Wei was truly a decent person that was hard to find in this world. He had guessed that because of her, the children were able to survive in this cruel world. And the price that the teacher had to pay was to offer her own body in exchange for food.
Yue Zhong did not think that he was any decent person, but he hoped that the good people truly deserves better lives. As long as they didn’t hamper his way, he was willing to do all he could within his power to protect those kind-hearted souls.
“Don’t kill him!” Right at this time, Teacher Wei, who was under the man, stood in front to shield him, her body topless and arms stretched out wide.
Yue Zhong’s Spirit was extremely powerful, and the killing intent that was emitted from him could be felt by everybody in the room.
Yue Zhong eyed the teacher with a complicated gaze as he spoke slowly: “Seeing that he has treated you like so, yet you want to protect him. Give me a reason not to kill him.”
Teacher Wei looked straight back without fear in her eyes, and smiled sadly: “Yes, I use my body to exchange for food. It is not the best solution, but I’m the willing party. Without his help, everyone here would have starved long ago. Furthermore, for the sake of survival, I have given myself to a number of people. Compared to the rest, I can’t really complain about how he treats me.”
Yue Zhong sank into his thoughts, and kept his gun, before looking at the man and barked out coldly: “You’re getting off easy! Get lost!”
“Yes! Yes! I’ll scram! I’ll scram!!” The man wiped his perspirations off and mumbled to Yue Zhong before scurrying out the door.
The moment the man left the room, Yue Zhong’s gaze swept over the fair and voluptuous bosom of Teacher Wei, and a strange feeling arose in his heart. He had not been with any of his women for nearly a week, and due to his work, he had not managed to take a rest. Now that things have settled down, his body began to react. It was nothing to do with love, it was just purely a sexual need.
The charming Teacher Wei felt the passionate gaze from Yue Zhong and felt the looks from the children, and quickly wore her clothes.
After she was dressed, Yue Zhong asked: “What’s your name? What’s this place? I want the specific province, city or county.”
Teacher Wei collected her thoughts before replying: “I’m called Wei Jie, and I was a primary school teacher before the apocalypse. This is Ding Town, within the province of Bin Xi City in Guang Xi Province. The leader is called Zhang Liu He.”
“Fortunately, I wasn’t blown too far away!” Hearing her words, Yue Zhong heaved a sigh of relief.
Bin Xi City was not too far from Gui Ning City, as long as he could get to a road he recognized, he could reach Gui Ning in a few hours.
Yue Zhong continued asking: “Do you know the way to Gui Ning?”
Wei Jie directly shook her head: “No!”
She was just an ordinary teacher in the past, going to Gui Ning City or Nan Ning City would require the train or a car. If she had to go there by herself, she could not manage.
Yue Zhong was also an ordinary university student before, without even a license. Everywhere he went, he had a subordinate to lead him, but he himself was unable to locate the road to Gui Ning City.
“Oh!” He sunk back into his thoughts, and brought out 2 chocolate bars from his chest, and threw one to the girl who let him in, the other to Wei Jie. This was the repayment for letting him stay.
Even if she had not allowed him to enter, he would have ways to survive. However, her kindness and sympathy was rare in a world where humanity was almost eroded. To Yue Zhong, that was something precious.
Wei Jie’s eyes lit up as she received the chocolate and thanked him: “Thank you!”
Chocolate was a high calorie food and was also tasty, in times of trouble, it could be a life-saver.
“Thank you! I’m called Liu Xiao Hong!” The young lady who let Yue Zhong in thanked him as well.
Yue Zhong replied coolly: “No need for thanks! This is payment for borrowing your room.”
After which, Yue Zhong brought out more chocolate and drinks from his bag as he began to dig in.
These chocolates and drinks were all high-calorie food, and provided the necessary energy to him. With it, he could recover faster.
On the other side, the little rascals looked at Yue Zhong eating heartily all by himself, and began to salivate. However, they remembered the heavy killing intent that he had released earlier, and were afraid of him. Therefore, they didn’t dare approach him to ask.
Wei Jie opened up the chocolate bar that Yue Zhong threw to her, and begun splitting it, giving an equal portion to each kid, leaving none for herself.
Yue Zhong watched this silently, and felt a little appeased. Even in this cruel world, where order had crumbled, there were still people who kept their humanity and kindness. Furthermore, it was from a fellow Chinese, and it gave him some form of consolation, having witnessed and experienced countless dark and morbid events.
After looking, he then laid quietly and shut his eyes to rest. However, he maintained a half-asleep posture, the moment there was some killing intent, or the slight movement from a blade of grass, he would be ready.
Wei Jie looked at this young man in front of her, with a complicated gaze in her eyes as well. With her experience, she could tell that this man was still a little humane. However, even if he was an expert, with his legs broken, it would be hard to move around in this world. Otherwise, she would have offered herself, just so she can keep the kids alive.
Even as he laid quietly, everyone could still feel the pressure emitted by him, and they maintained their silence.
Only Du Qiang was staring at Yue Zhong fixedly like a hungry wolf with cold eyes, at the same time, his gaze would turn to Wei Jie from time to time, with hints of love, hate as well as jealousy and all sorts of complicated feelings.
Like this, the night passed quietly, early the next morning, the snow storm had subsided entirely. Du Qiang pushed open the door and began to walk out.
Wei Jie eyed the boy and could not help but call out: “Du Qiang, where are you going? You haven’t eaten your breakfast!”
Du Qiang retorted briskly without even turning his head: “None of your business!”
She watched him go, and sighed.
Liu Xiao Hong reached out to assure her: “Teacher Wei! Don’t bother about him. We’re different from him.”
Du Qiang’s personality was rebellious, and in this little group, it was hard for him to fit in. Other than Wei Jie, the rest hated him.
Wei Jie didn’t say much, and just replied: “Time for breakfast!”
Soon, some hot smoke rose from this small house.
Everyone obtained a small bowl of gruel.
The children took them carefully and savoured every single last drop, as though it was the most delicious meal they ever had. Before the apocalypse, many had been little tyrants and kings, wasting food after every few bites. They didn’t even like to eat proper food, they just like to munch on snacks. However, with the harsh reality of the apocalypse, they had begun to savour even the most meagre of meals.
Liu Xiao Hong also prepared a bowl to hand to Yue Zhong.
He shook his head and threw 2 cans of meat to Liu Xiao Hong and Wei Jie.
When the 2 women saw it, their eyes were filled with a strange glint. In this Ding Town, a can of meat could easily purchase a beautiful woman like Wei Jie for 4 nights. Yue Zhong had just thrown two out, his generosity and casual attitude caused them to be delighted, yet apprehensive at the same time.
The little rascals within the room stared at the cans of meat in Wei Jie and Liu Xiao Hong’s hands.
Wei Jie hesitated a little, before gritting her teeth: “Let’s open one!”
Liu Xiao Hong gulped her saliva down and opened her can.
Wei Jie spoke: “One slice per person!!”
“That’s great! You’re the best!”
The children whooped in delight and surrounded them. Each one was given a slice, and they began to nibble bit by bit, savoring the taste for as long as possible. It was over half a year since they last had some meat.
In the apocalyptic world, there were many strong people in their factions that led better lives than even before the disaster. However, the people at the lower rungs of society were worse off, many starving and suffering.
Just as they were enjoying their meat, 10 burly men, led by a muscled man with buck tooth and a single eye, stormed into the small house.
Du Qiang pointed at Yue Zhong, before putting on a fawning expression towards the bucktoothed man and said: “Boss Xun, it’s that man, he has a gun! It was him who fired a shot last night!”
Boss Xun swept his gaze over Yue Zhong and threatened loudly: “Fuck!! Damn cripple, this is I, your father’s, territory! Hand over your gun! Otherwise, I’ll break your arms and turn you into a disabled person without his limbs!”
After barking out his threat, his gaze landed on Wei Jie, and a hint of perverse lust flashed past his eyes. He licked his lips and continued: “Shit!! There’s such a quality good over here. What a waste! Come and make yourself useful!”
After that, he didn’t even bother about the eyes in the room and reached out for Wei Jie’s hair.
In this region, this Boss Xun led a life like a king. Since the apocalypse, where morality and humanity was basically eroding away, he didn’t care how others viewed him. He was the close brother of Zhang Liu He, the boss of Ding Town, and as long as he was loyal to him, fucking a few women wasn’t a big deal.
“No!! Boss Xun!!” A huge sense of anger welled up in Du Qiang’s heart, and he lurched forward, trying to stop Boss Xun from grabbing Wei Jie.
“Fucking trash! Go to hell!” Boss Xun shot Du Qiang a ferocious glare and threw out a vicious punch. A Strength 3 times that of a normal person exploded out, causing Du Qiang to fly towards a wall, crashing into it heavily. He spat out a mouthful of blood, the light in his eyes disappearing, as he turned into a corpse and slumped slowly to the ground.
Seeing that bloody scene, the rest of the children, Wei Jie and Liu Xiao Hong trembled with fear. Killing a person with a single punch, it was the first time they had witnessed such a fearsome scene.
Boss Xun spat out a glob of saliva on the floor, eyeing Wei Jie and ordered venomously: “Pei! Trash! He dares disrupt this father’s matters. Crawl over here! You better lick my boots clean!”
Boss Xun was a lowly farmer prior to the apocalypse. Due to his looks, he had suffered plenty of disdain in the city, and many women had recoiled at the sight of him. This caused him to be filled with inferiority and anger. After the apocalypse, he gained some strength and started to retaliate against any beautiful women. He liked to watch them grovel at his feet like dogs.
Wei Jie’s face was pale as a sheet. Although she had sold herself out, she wasn’t willing to throw away her pride as well.
“Trash!” Yue Zhong snapped coldly.
When Boss Xun heard that, he pointed at Yue Zhong and bellowed: “Fuck! Damn cripple, what the fuck did you say? Men, go break his arms, then hang him outside to dry!”
“Piece of shit! Just die!!” 7 of the men rushed towards Yue Zhong with a hint of madness in their eyes.
With a flash of a blade, before they even reached Yue Zhong, their bodies were chopped into several pieces. Fresh blood and steaming innards splattered everywhere. The whole room was covered in a grotesque bloody color.
Yue Zhong stood up slowly, his Crocodile Saw Tooth Blade raised in his arms, as he looked at Boss Xun coldly.
“AH!!!” Seeing his 7 comrades sliced apart like tofu, one of the other subordinates was frightened and trembled as he tried to run out.
Boss Xun’s face had a huge change, and he knew at once that he wasn’t a match for Yue Zhong. He himself had no way of instantly slaughtering 7 men, and this man had just casually done so. He was obviously a dangerous and powerful opponent.
Boss Xun immediately came to a decision and made a mad dash for Wei Jie. As long as he had a hostage, he would have a sliver of chance.
Just as he was about to reach for her, a blade beam slashed past his neck, and his head fell off without any resistance. The headless corpse stumbled a few steps forward, before slumping to the ground as blood fountained in a falling arc through the air.
When Wei Jie, Liu Xiao Hong and the rest of the children witnessed this, they were truly frightened out of their wits. They have never come across such an inhumane sight before.
“Nice reaction! Too bad, it was too slow!” Yue Zhong eyed the corpse of Boss Xun, before suddenly disappearing from his position.
At the next instant, he appeared beside the remaining hooligan, his blade held at the neck as he barked coldly: “Bring me to Zhang Liu He!”
“Yes! Yes!” The burly man immediately stammered out, he didn’t dare disobey such a terrifying existence.
Led by the burly man, Yue Zhong came to a villa.
The man pointed to the villa and spoke: “Zhang Liu He is inside!”
At the same time, a middle-aged man stepped out, exuding an imposing aura. He had huge coarse hands, his face was slightly tanned, but his eyes were sharp. He was accompanied by 8 other Enhancers.
Zhang Liu He eyed Yue Zhong and his eyes narrowed: “Friend, I’m Zhang Liu He. Is there some sort of misunderstanding between us?”
Yue Zhong eyed him coldly and said: “Ding Town is now mine! I’ll only give you 3 seconds to consider, you can surrender or die.”
Ding Town was in between Bin Qi City and Gui Ning City and would be a place within Yue Zhong’s control in the future. Since he came here, he might as well set his plans in motion early.
A man with spiky hair and a gold leather jacket stepped out and cursed: “Damn you! Who the fuck are you! Are you looking to die?!”
Yue Zhong’s eyes turned icy, as the Stinger appeared in his hands and he fired a single shot at the loudmouth.
The man with the spiky hair had his head directly blasted apart, as the sloppy red and white brain matter splattered onto the ground, beautifying the pavement.
Zhang Liu He’s heart turned cold as he barked out: “Move!! Kill him!!”
Zhang Liu He’s words had just come out his mouth when Yue Zhong had already activated his [Shadow Steps], shooting forwards like an arrow, nigh instantly appearing in front of Zhang Liu He like a spectre.
Yue Zhong waved his Crocodile Saw Tooth Blade, and a blade beam flashed past Zhang Liu He’s neck.
Zhang Liu He had no way of reacting in time when his head was sliced off cleanly. It rolled to the ground, fresh blood splattering everywhere.
Seeing how casually he had taken down their boss, the 4 experts felt their heart turn cold. They were drenched in fear and did not dare move.
The remaining 3 Enhancers who were Agility and Strength-based charged forth towards Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong eyed those 3 Enhancers and the Crocodile Tooth Saw Blade in his hands danced again.
In the blink of an eye, the 3 Enhancers were sliced apart, their dismembered bodies dropping to the floor. It was a gruesome sight.
“I surrender!! I surrender!!”
“Don’t kill me! I surrender!”
The remaining 4 experts had their confidence shattered, and they immediately knelt on the ground, shivering as they took the initiative to surrender. It was the first time that they had come across such a terrifying expert, and while the 8 of them could join forces against Zhang Liu He, in front of this man, they had obviously been slaughtered like chickens. They knew they were absolutely nothing.
Yue Zhong eyed them coolly and asked: “Report your names!”
Yue Zhong ordered: “Go gather the soldiers of Ding Town, await my orders.”
“Yes!” The 4 men immediately headed out.
Within Ding Town, there were 300 survivors, and of which, 80 were soldiers. The rest were just ordinary survivors.
Most of them did not have any good impression of Zhang Liu He, even if the leader was changed, they didn’t have any response. They were the lowest of society anyway.
Yue Zhong split the 80 soldiers into 4 teams led by each of the 4 experts.
“Boss Yue! Not good! There’s an enemy raid!!” Right as Yue Zhong was reorganizing them, Zhang En came running with a pale expression, flanked by 6 or 7 of his men as he reported loudly.
“What? Bring me there!!” Yue Zhong frowned and left with huge strides.
Ding Town was now considered an establishment under his control, and that meant its citizens were his people. If he had the means, he would protect them properly.
Tang Jun and the other 2 exchanged glances as they followed closely.
When Yue Zhong came to the town centre, he saw a group of 100 men and women carrying weapons, each of them sporting a scorpion tattoo. They were killing and raping the survivors of the Ding Town.
Tang Jun saw those tattoos and his face lost color: “Violent Scorpions!! It’s actually them!!”
The Violent Scorpions were the strongest armed force aside from the 3 main powers. They were located near Bin Qi City, and while they might only have about three to four hundred members, every one of them were strong Enhancers. At the same time, they were cruel and every time they went on a raid, they would not leave any survivors.
Hearing the name, Zhang En, Ma Jun and the rest turned pale and retreated a few steps. They wanted to turn and run, as Enhancers with enhanced bodies, they could definitely make a run for it.
Yue Zhong eyed those inhumane acts of the Violent Scorpions and frowned, as he waved his hand and a heavy machine gun appeared. He aimed at those gang members currently in the midst of killing and pillaging and pressed the trigger.
At the next moment, a fearsome line of fire spat out and 5 or 6 of the Violent Scorpions were directly punched full of holes, causing blood to spill everywhere.
With that sudden assault, the members of the Violent Scorpions began to curse out of shock and fear, as they hurried to dodge for cover.
Yue Zhong made use of his heavy machine gun to take down another 3 soldiers. By that time, the hundred others had found cover.
Zhang En and the rest saw how Yue Zhong magically pulled out his heavy machine gun and proceeded to fire at the Violent Scorpions without batting an eyelid, and were stunned speechless.
It was especially shocking due to the nature of those heavy caliber bullets. A single round could blast a head apart, or tear a person’s body in two if it struck the waist. Its ability to sweep across its enemies was fearsome and a testament to its might.
Yue Zhong saw that the soldiers had managed to find cover, and he frowned slightly. It was going to be harder to deal with them.
Yue Zhong then shot forwards towards the hiding places of the soldiers.
“Go to hell!!” Right in the middle of his charge, 6 Violent Scorpions Enhancers leaped out of an alley and made to attack Yue Zhong with their daggers and Replica Tang Swords.
Yue Zhong whipped out his dual .05 submachine guns and with lightning speed, he aimed at their heads and fired off mercilessly.
With a short clean burst of gunfire, the 6 Violent Scorpions Enhancers were turned into sieves.
‘Kuang lang!” Following the sounds of glass shattering, 2 Agility-based Enhancers broke through a window and charged at Yue Zhong. However, they had just emerged from the windows, when the holes of the guns were pointed at their heads, before spraying a line of fire. In that moment, bullets pierced their brain, turning them into lifeless corpses that slumped to the floor.
At a hidden corner, a dozen young men and women were dressed in tattered clothes and they huddled together. They were dressed simply, and it could be seen that their constitution was stronger than most, otherwise they would not be able to tolerate the cold.
The stronger the body, the stronger the resistance towards extreme temperatures. With Yue Zhong’s current body, as long as he wasn’t blanketed by that violent snowstorm, he wouldn’t be affected by the cold at all.
One of the young males, who looked about 16 or 17 and had a blond mohawk hairstyle, as well as piercings, eyed Yue Zhong who was going around killing the members of the Violent Scorpions. His eyes flashed with fear, and immediately spoke urgently to a young woman with purple hair beside him: “Big Sis!! What do we do? That guy is a freak! He’s too terrifying! Why don’t… why don’t we retreat first?”
Beside the mohawk boy, the young woman was dressed in black leather, her head full of purple hair. Her figure was explosively stunning, and her skin fair. Her legs were slender and seemed more taut with her choice of high heels. Her lips were thick and full, her features exquisite. The gaze in her eyes was sharp for her age, and she had an imposing aura as well as a charm, giving her the feel as though she was a sexy female leopard.
The various young men and women were gathered around her, awaiting her orders. It was obvious she was the ringleader.
The purple-hair beauty cursed out without regard for her image, as a string of profanities came out with her Dark Magic Blade pointed at Yue Zhong before she charged over: “Mountain Chicken! To hell with retreating! Fuck that fellow, let’s fucking do him in!”
“Attack!!” With her lead, the rest of the young men and women began to rush over.
Yue Zhong eyed them approaching and immediately pulled out his QJZ8 heavy machine gun, aiming at them.
“Don’t shoot! I have something to say!” The beauty with purple hair eyed the heavy machine gun and her expression changed before she came to a stop. She raised her hands and got the rest of her subordinates to stop in their tracks as well.
Yue Zhong frowned and lifted the heavy machine gun slightly as he spoke coldly: “Surrender now, and become my subordinates. Otherwise, you can all die here. Choose.”
Yue Zhong had never had the habit of going easy on his enemies. Since this bunch of jokers had decided to attack his town, he didn’t mind killing them all.
The vivacious woman licked her alluring lips and pointed at Yue Zhong with her Dark Magic Blade. Her sharp eyes were fixed on Yue Zhong, as she spoke with an excited and passionate look: “My name is Xue Ning. The Big Sister of the Violent Scorpions, Purple Scorpion Xue Ning. What’s the point of using a gun! If you have the balls, come and take up your blade against this Queen! If you can win me, I’m willing to be your woman, even if you want this Queen to strip naked and be fucked by you, this Queen will do it. However, if you lose to me, you must join me, and become my man!”*
Xue Ning was extremely interested in Yue Zhong’s marksmanship and ability to conjure a gun out of nowhere. She lacked such a force in her team. If he joined her, her Purple Scorpion Team would then become the top force amongst the 3 factions of the Violent Scorpions.
“Let’s see if you have the ability!” Yue Zhong flipped his hand, and the heavy machine gun disappeared before he turned into a flash and charged towards Xue Ning.
“Little Handsome, your speed ain’t too bad!! What a pity, you’ve met me! Today, you’re destined to be mine!”
Xue Ning eyed Yue Zhong and licked her lips again. She activated her Second Order High-Speed Movement, and her entire body disappeared, rushing towards Yue Zhong with a spectre-like speed. She was a naturally awakened Agility-based Evolver, and at the point of her evolution, she had gained insight into the Second Order High-Speed Movement. It was precisely because of that she could rise to become one of the 3 leaders in the Violent Scorpions.
After activating her skill, Xue Ning’s speed exploded out with double her original speed. It exceeded a normal person by at least 13 times, as that slender leg of hers lashed out viciously towards Yue Zhong’s waist. She wanted to beat down this man thoroughly, to get him to submit to her totally.
“Too slow!” Yue Zhong’s hand easily grabbed her leg, as he took a casual step forwards, and his right hand locking onto Xue Ning’s throat like a venomous snake.
Xue Ning was over Level 30, and facing Yue Zhong who was over Level 60 and equipped with an entire set of equipment, she was simply powerless.
“You’ve lost!” Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed with a cold gaze as he strengthened his grip, resulting in his handprint to cause a deeper impression on her fair neck.
“Let go of Big Sis!!” A few of the young hooligans exploded out in rage and raised their weapons towards Yue Zhong.
The mohawk youth was the most devastated, as he had a long-time crush on Xue Ning, seeing another man grabbing his saintess like that, his heart was brimming with fury, and he pulled out a gun to aim at Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong stood quietly, but a nether hole appeared in mid-air, with White Bones taking a step out, and immediately shooting out a bone spike to pierce mohawk boy’s head. With the flash of White Bones’ blades, the 7 or 8 other young hooligans that rushed forwards were instantly sliced into multiple parts, dropping onto the floor.
That ruthless and gory scene shocked everyone present, as they trembled. Their fear towards Yue Zhong had reached an apex, causing them to stay still.
When the other Violent Scorpions at the other locations saw this, they were also filled with fear. Their number one expert Purple Scorpion Xue Ning had been easily subdued but his man, and there was a freakish monster by his side that could slice out with bone blades. Every single one of them instantly stopped what they were doing, for fear of angering Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong grabbed Xue Ning’s snow-white neck for a while, sweeping his gaze around, before loosening his grip. He then eyed the coughing Xue Ning and asked coldly: “Are you going to make your decision now to follow me, or do you want everyone to accompany you in death?”
Xue Ning coughed a few times before she lifted her head and replied in a straightforward manner: “I’ve lost! Since this Queen has lost, I’m naturally your woman. I, Purple Scorpion Xue Ning, am your girlfriend now! My Purple Scorpion team is yours as well! Kids, get the hell out here. Come and greet your new boss. Oh yes, what’s your name? You can’t keep getting me to call you boss right?”
Yue Zhong eyed Xue Ning, with an appreciative look: “I’m called Yue Zhong.”
Although this Xue Ning was loud and obnoxious, calling herself ‘this Queen’, and spoke like a little gangster, it was undeniable that she was an incredibly sexy and beautiful girl. At the same time, she was strong in her own right, it was just that Yue Zhong was vastly overpowered.
Xue Ning eyed Yue Zhong, with a likewise strange glint in her eyes and she spoke directly: “Great! Boss Yue, from today onwards, you’re my man, I’m your woman.”
Xue Ning was not an idiot, she could tell in that instant during their exchange that the gap between them was truly too huge. If she insisted on being at loggerheads with him, the Purple Scorpions would be wiped from the earth on this day.
Note 1: Actual Chinese Raws put ���� which directly translates to the female version of “your daddy/your father/this laozi” I’ve decided to use queen as an arrogant way that she refers to herself.
Note 2: I’ve never seen anyone refer to Yue Zhong as little handsome. LOL
This Purple Scorpion Team was originally Xue Ning’s private troop, under her orders, they began to gather quickly.
Xue Ning pointed to Yue Zhong and ordered her subordinates: “This is your boss, quick, acknowledge him!”
The youths immediately called out loudly: “Greetings Boss!”
Yue Zhong carefully observed this group of hooligans, a bunch of teenagers ranging from age 15 to 19. Everyone of them had strange outfits, and their hair were dyed different colours. Adding on to the bits of gold they wore, it was even more strange.
Zhang En and the other Enhancers saw how easily Yue Zhong had subdued and controlled this faction of the Violent Scorpions and were speechless.
Yue Zhong proceeded to ask Xue Ning: “Why did you guys decide to attack Ding Town?”
Xue Ning’s eyes flashed with helplessness: “The crazy bitches from the Snow Palace had launched an attack out of nowhere on the surrounding powers. Our Violent Scorpions were not a match against those crazy women, and had no choice but to run in this direction. We had intended to shrug, say fuck it, and relocate here.”
Yue Zhong asked curiously: “Snow Palace, I heard that they were an all-female bunch, with your power, going there should be more beneficial for you, why didn’t you do so?” Xue Ning was not weak, with her Second Order Divine Speed, on top of her Agility-based Evolver status, she would be welcomed anywhere. That was why Yue Zhong was curious. Xue Ning’s voice turned solemn: “No can do. If I brought my people there, other than those of us who are women, the rest of my brothers would be sentenced to lead their lives as lowly slaves.” Xue Ning wasn’t a power hungry woman, nor was she an absolutely capable leader. However, she was caring enough to not abandon her subordinates nor condemn them to a life of suffering.
Through her explanation, Yue Zhong discovered what it was like to be in the all-women faction, Snow Palace. The leader was a powerful and terrifying female expert, and other than her, the rest of the upper echelons were also strong female experts.
There were a total of 3,000 women in Snow Palace, and they were all disciples of the faction. Other than them, there about 12,000 men who were slaves. They had to slog for the Snow Palace, and ate the worst food, did the most horrible jobs, and lived in the most uninhabitable places. Everyday, there would be men who died from the cold, but the Snow Palace basically ignored their plight.
Hearing that description, Yue Zhong was sullen: “The world has really changed. What kind of stupid hellhole did that leader of the Snow Palace crawl out from, to be so antagonistic to all men?” It was obvious that the head of the Snow Palace viewed men with disdain.
Yue Zhong continued to ask: “How many of your Violent Scorpions are left?”
Xue Ning did not hide anything and replied: “Of the original 3 factions of the Violent Scorpions, the Purple Scorpions, the Yellow Scorpions and the Scarlet Scorpions, the Yellow Scorpions have been wiped out. The Red Scorpions under Toilet and this group are all that’s left.”
Yue Zhong continued: “Is there any way to get in contact with Toilet?”
Xue Ning looked straight at Yue Zhong with her beautiful eyes and shook her head slowly: “Boss Yue, this Queen might be your girlfriend, but this Queen will not betray her brothers even if you got people to torture me. You can force me to do anything, but this Queen will definitely not betray her brothers.”
Yue Zhong could not take it anymore and rebuked her: “Can you stop using ‘this Queen’, and just speak normally?”
Looking at such a hot and beautiful little minx actually refer to herself as ‘Queen’ caused Yue Zhong to be uncomfortable. Xue Ning replied, albeit a little awkwardly: “Got it, from now on, this Queen…no, I will take note of it.”
Right at this moment, following the loud roars of motors, 2 assault helicopters flew overhead, passing this small town as they headed into the distance. Yue Zhong saw those assault helicopters and a strange glint flashed in his eyes: “Those are the Eurocopter Tigers, are they from the Kingdom of God?”
The Kingdom of God originated from Europe, Germany, and the Eurocopters were the most common form of weapons they had utilized when they were expanding in Vietnam. Yue Zhong pointed at the direction which those Eurocopters flew towards and asked Xue Ning: “What faction lies over there?”
Xue Ning took a look before replying: “It should be the territory of the Thousand Heroes Association. The boss, Dan Ba, is a lustful sex pervert, but his strength is genuine. I heard they are on equal footing with the Snow Palace, with over ten thousand survivors.”
Yue Zhong eyed that direction and a bad premonition arose in his heart.
Seeing that this street-wise mouthy female leader knew the area well, he continued to ask: “I want to go to Gui Ning City. Do you know the way?” Xue Ning asked: “I know, but to get there, we need to pass through any of the 3 major powers. Which road will you prefer?”
“Which road is the fastest?”
“The road that passes through the territory of the Greater China Alliance.” He immediately brought an end to the discussion: “Then let’s head to the Greater China Alliance.”
Xue Ning looked at her subordinates within the town, her face turning slightly downcast: “But Boss Yue, what about about my brothers, sisters and the people of Ding Town?”
Through the experiences of the apocalypse, Xue Ning had grown accustomed and distant to the loss of lives, but she was extremely loyal to her people. Since this band of rogue teenagers had followed her, she was determined to be responsible for them. That was why even though she was an Evolver that possessed a Second Order skill, she was only Level 30, because she focused on empowering the rest. Due to her tireless efforts to support and protect them, they were all loyal to her.
“There’s enough food to support everyone here for a week. Wei Jie, come over.” Yue Zhong eyed Wei Jie who was standing a distance away and called for her.
Wei Jie came to his side and asked with a little apprehension: “Boss Yue, what’s the matter?”
Yue Zhong’s measures were decisive and vicious, and his merciless attitude to his enemies had thoroughly shocked this kind-hearted teacher who only had the best interest of her children in mind. She found it hard to breathe just by standing beside him.
Yue Zhong swept his gaze over the people present, before pointing to White Bones and said coldly: “Everyone listen up, from now on, Wei Jie is the temporary leader of the town. Zhang En, you and the rest will assist her in the running of the town. White Bones will be aiding you as well. Whoever does not listen, it will directly kill the offender. The whole lot of you, better run the town properly. Wait for my return, is that understood?”
Zhang En and the rest felt a chill down their spine as they replied respectfully: “Yes, Leader.”
Although they were not wholeheartedly submissive to Yue Zhong yet, they had been frightened by his fearsome methods. As long as he was not dead, or without the assistance of any other larger power, they would not dare to entertain any strange thoughts.
Xue Ning also lectured a few of her little leaders, before deciding to bring along a 13 or 14 year old, whose hair was dyed tea-green. She had thick makeup on, and her figure was just beginning to blossom.
Xue Ning pointed to this girl with tea-green hair and introduced: “This is Liu Xiao Cha, you can call her Little Tea. She has the ability to forecast the weather up to a day in advance, and she’s extremely accurate. She can even predict how long before the next rain fall, and how long the rain will take.”
Liu Xiao Cha looked at Yue Zhong and shot him a provocative smile: “Boss Yue, you’re really cool. I’m all wet from watching you. If you want to fuck, just find me hehe.”
“Get on.” He eyed them impassively, and pointed to the Swift Shadow Bike that he retrieved from his Storage Ring.
The girls in the current society were truly audacious and open, there were many young females who were not closed to experimenting with their bodies, and when the topic came to sex, they were even more daring than most guys. Yue Zhong did not view such people with contempt, after all, it was their choice. However, it did not mean that he liked them.
However, her nature-predicting ability was important to Yue Zhong who did not control a satellite. If he had someone like her earlier, he wouldn’t have been blown away by that monstrous snowstorm.
Liu Xiao Cha took one look at the sleek and powerful looking motorcycle and her eyes shone with anticipation: “Wa! What a cool motorcycle!”
Xue Ning slapped Liu Xiao Cha’s perky butt and said: “Get on, you havoc vixen.”
“Yes, Big Sis!” She exclaimed and leapt on.
Xue Ning chuckled seductively at Yue Zhong and got on as well: “Boss Yue, Little Tea is not a bad girl, she’s one of the two virgins I have in my troop, and she’s relatively clean. There are no problems if you wanna fuck her.”
“Am I some lustful sex maniac in your eyes?” Yue Zhong was speechless as he got on the bike. The moment he climbed behind Xue Ning, he could smell the bewitching scent of the young girl in front of him, and felt her perky and bouncy figure in front of him. He instantly got aroused, and his rod pressed against her bottom. Xue Ning nestled deeper into his arms and teased: “Hehe, you’re hard, ain’tcha?”
“Shut up and sit tight.” He was a little embarrassed and irritated, barking out before flooring the accelerator, causing the motorbike to roar to life and charged into the horizon. Before the apocalypse, this Yang County had over 100,000 residents, now, the entire place had become the territory of the Greater China Alliance.
Yue Zhong brought Xue Ning and Liu Xiao Cha to the outskirts of Yang County, observing and making their preparations.
Outside Yang County, there was a river of about 6m width that flowed around it. Prior to the apocalypse, the moat didn’t exist. It was apparent that the Greater China Alliance had gotten manual labor to be carried out, digging such a moat and redirecting water to flow in it.
Furthermore, there was a city wall of about 5m surrounding the city within the moat. There were all sorts of defence fortifications on top of the wall. There were also numerous heavy machine guns pointed outwards, prepared to tear any enemy into shreds.
With the combination of the 6m-wide moat and the 5m-high city wall, even if 100,000 zombies attacked, Yang County could defend itself comfortably. Even Mutant Beasts hordes and other human factions would have to think twice before launching an assault.
The fortifications and structures were built impressively, and the huge moat having been erected at the expense of a huge amount of manual labour was also a stroke of genius. It was also partly because the county was near a water source, that was why it was possible. If it was a city, the moat would be too huge, and the amount of manpower required would be overwhelming. It would not have been possible to do it in a short time. If it was a small town, then the number of survivors would be too little to dig an effective moat.
With such defences in place, even if Yue Zhong activated his elite troops, he would have to pay quite a price to be able to take it down.
Yue Zhong scrutinized every available detail before saying: “Let’s go.”
Xue Ning and Liu Xiao Cha followed behind as the trio made their way towards Yang County.
For the sake of preventing unwanted attention, both the girls had ruffled their hair, and wore distasteful clothes, hiding their looks and figures.
When the sentries saw this small group approaching harmlessly, they waved them in with disgust.
Yue Zhong then led the 2 of them silently as they walked towards the other side of the county.
The current atmosphere in the county was bleak, as most of the survivors were hiding in their own homes, avoiding the cold. The homeless were huddled together at various corners, their eyes blinking soullessly awaiting their deaths. There wasn’t a sign of life on the streets, and it felt as though the inhabitants were already zombies.
At this time, there was a loud commotion resounding from a distance away: “Get the hell out of the way! Get the hell away! Young Master Jin is coming out to walk the dogs!”
Yue Zhong followed the source of the sound, only to see a young man with fox fur and a wretched look holding a rope of sorts. At the end of the rope, there were 8 young beauties crawling on the ground, their eyes lacking the radiance of life, crawling around naked.
There were 10 men in black suits and sunglasses around the young man, acting like bodyguards. One of them was currently shouting at the homeless people on the streets.
“Beast.” Yue Zhong saw the wretched young man ‘walking’ the young girls like dogs and his fury billowed. He clenched his fists tightly, his eyes flashing with an intensity.
After the apocalypse, the human race was deteriorating, and there were zombies and Mutant Beasts everywhere. Yet there were some people who gave in to their inner devils, and indulged in depravity, humiliating and killing their own people. They would stepped on others to ensure their own enjoyment and pleasures. Yue Zhong hated these type of people to the core.
When Xue Ning and Liu Xiao Cha saw the scene, their eyes were filled with pain and hatred as well. They were after all women, and seeing how their fellow women were being treated by this Young Master Jin, they looked as though they were about to explode with their wrath.
The bodyguard who was shouting at the homeless on the streets saw Yue Zhong’s group, and his expression turned ugly: “What the fuck are you guys staring at, aren’t you shitheads supposed to get down and kneel, welcoming our Young Master Jin? His dogs are not meant to be looked upon by the likes of you shits!”
Regardless of period, and era, all rich playboys would have lapdogs by their sides. They were the fiercest bunch, as long as they encountered any other people whose status was lower, they would not hesitate to step up and lash out harshly to demonstrate their power.
“Eeee, Zhang Fang, stand down.”
The Young Master Jin’s attention was attracted, and his gaze landed on Xue Ning’s purple hair, as well as her curvaceous body. His pupils shone with a lustful gleam, and he began to walk over.
He looked at them from head to toe, and again, a perverse expression flashed past his face as he waved his hands and ordered: “I’ve decided. The 2 of you will be my bitches. Come, men, kill the man.”
In this Young Master Jin’s eyes, a person’s life was not even comparable to a dog. As long as he wished it, killing a few people would not be an issue.
The bodyguard immediately replied in a fawning manner: “Yes, Young Master Jin! Men, capture the 2 women, and kill the man!”
The remaining 9 bodyguards made their move towards Yue Zhong’s group simultaneously. They had unusual methods and movements, and from their body constitution, it was obvious that they were all Enhancers.
“Truly seeking death.” Yue Zhong did not expect that just a single glance at this wretched playboy was enough to set off trouble. This Young Master Jin was even more tyrannical than Yue Zhong by goodness knows how many times.
“A bunch of trash. You should simply go and die!” Yue Zhong waved his hand, and his Crocodile Saw Tooth Blade appeared, and in an instant, he sent out over a dozen blade beams outwards, chopping up the bodyguards like meat. Blood, organs and body parts splattered all over the ground.
When the Young Master Jin saw his bunch of lackeys instantly mutilated, he fell down in shock and wet his pants out of fear. He began crying out: “Ah!! Help!! Help!!! You can’t kill me, I’m Jin Sheng Cheng’s son Jin Da Li! If you kill me, my father will not let you off!!”
Yue Zhong shot Jin Da Li an extremely cold look as he slashed down viciously: “Trash, you don’t have to worry, I’ll go find your dad and send him to meet you in Hell!”
At this time, an ordinary-looking bodyguard that had been standing quietly by Jin Da Li’s side shot forwards explosively, his hands wielding a Dark Magic Blade as he parried Yue Zhong’s slash.
At the same time, there was a huge force that travelled from the point of impact, causing Yue Zhong to take 2 steps back.
His pupils narrowed as he stared at the bodyguard, asking slowly: “You’re a Strength and Agility dual-attribute Evolver?”
The bodyguard raised his blade to point at Yue Zhong, his gaze similarly filled with a seriousness and chill. It was his first time encountering such a fearsome opponent, that caused even a dual-attribute Evolver like him to almost lose in the earlier clash. He was filled with shock towards Yue Zhong: “Please leave me some face. Let him go. Today’s matters, I’ll take as if nothing happened.”
Jin Da Li was now hiding behind the bodyguard as he yelled at Yue Zhong with hatred: “Tian Hao, well done! Go kill him! After a few days, I’ll gift these bitches to you. Kill him now! Kill him now!!”
Yue Zhong stared fixedly at Tian Hao and spoke slowly: “Is this piece of garbage worth your protection?”
Yue Zhong could feel that Tian Hao really didn’t want himself as an enemy.
Tian Hao’s eyes flashed with a hint of helplessness: “I need to ensure his safety.”
Yue Zhong’s gaze turned strict, as his eyes flashed with an icy resolution: “Then I guess I’ll send you on your way as well. I’ll definitely not leave that piece of shit alive.”
Yue Zhong could guess that Tian Hao had his difficulties. However, there was a sea of people like that, and he couldn’t allow his sentiments to get the better of him, as well as his path.
“Then, sorry.” Tian Hao’s eyes flashed with a strange light, and he activated his own Second Order Shadow Steps, and his speed increased explosively, exceeding even the speed of a Type 2 Lightning. In a blink, he crossed the 8m distance between him and Yue Zhong, as a flash of a dagger soared through the air, threatening to slice off Yue Zhong’s left arm.
“Fast.” Yue Zhong’s eyes glinted, as he activated his Shadow Steps, and Gravity Manipulation. A huge force weighed down on Tian Hao’s body, causing his movements to turn sluggish.
Right as he was impeded, Yue Zhong immediately sent a blade towards Tian Hao’s own arm.
“Open!” Tian Hao bellowed in rage, his body muscles turning taut, as a ferocious strength exploded out from him, bringing his blade up to parry Yue Zhong’s attack. Once again, Yue Zhong was forced back.
Yue Zhong could easily take down a Level 30 Evolver that specialized in close combat within a few seconds. However, he was matched blow for blow by this Tian Hao, it could be seen that this guy was not simple.
At that moment, just as Tian Hao was about to charge towards Yue Zhong again, Xue Ning’s voice came from behind, filled with thick killing intent: “Tian Hao, don’t move, or I’ll kill this garbage.”
“No!” Tian Hao turned around, only to see Xue Ning with her dagger at Jin Da Li’s chest, causing him to be alarmed.
“Hehe. Byebye!” Xue Ning turned around and flashed a provocative smile at Tian Hao, before thrusting the dagger deep into Jin Da Li’s chest, and twisting it ruthlessly, then pulling it out. A huge spray of blood splattered upwards, and she lashed out violently, sending Jin Da Li’s body towards Tian Hao.
Tian Hao’s face drained of all its colour, as he rushed towards Jin Da Li’s corpse, and reached his hand out. When he had just touched the body, Yue Zhong had already stepped forward and kicked at Tian Hao viciously as well. He was sent flying about 6 to 7 metres away, spitting a mouthful of blood, suffering greatly.
After Tian Hao was sent flying by a single kick, he immediately stepped out and reached to see if Jin Da Li was breathing. His face then turned ashen and he spat out a mouthful of blood: “Shit shit shit.”
Yue Zhong observed Tian Hao who had seemed to lose all will to live and coldly barked: “What’s the deal with him? Speak, I’ll see if I can help.”
Yue Zhong was a Level 66 expert, and his power was at a terrifying degree. If he really went all out, he could take down Tian Hao with 80% confidence. However, if he could get him to submit, then he would have gained a powerful subordinate.
Tian Hao replied with a downcast face: “My sister Tian Jing was captured by Jin Da Li. Only he knows where my sister is. I had to continue to work for him to ensure her safety. With his death, my sister is sure to die as well.
At this time, one of the woman who was sprawled on the ground naked, of about 31 or 32, had a strange glint in her eyes as she laughed coldly: “Tian Jing? Your sister Tian Jing has already died long ago.”
“What?! No!! Impossible!! Impossible! She can’t be dead!! You’re lying!!” Tian Hao’s face turned extremely savage, and charged at the beauty, as though he wanted to tear her apart.
Yue Zhong frowned and kicked out, causing Tian Hao to crash into the snow. If Tian Hao really lost his rationale, then he would have torn the beauty in two.
With his strength, Yue Zhong would have found it hard to bring him down without abilities. However, he was not thinking properly now, and had lost his combat edge. Even with a powerful constitution, such a person was basically vulnerable.
Yue Zhong waved his hands and threw some clothes to the 8 ladies, and commented: “Wear them! Come with me.”
The 8 of them received the clothes, and their eyes immediately turned red. A few of them thanked him in low voices. Having been treated like this and having lost all sense of dignity at the hands of Jin Da Li, Yue Zhong’s icy demeanor still provided them with a little respect.
“Since you want to know about your sister, come with me.” He eyed Tian Hao and spoke coldly.
After which, he directly went towards an alley.
Xue Ning, Liu Xiao Cha and the other 8 women followed closely behind.
Tian Hao’s body shuddered, and he stood up to hurry after them.
Yue Zhong’s killing of Jin Da Li was witnessed by many people on the streets. At this time, many of the survivors that had soulless eyes began to stir. Some pounced on the dead bodyguards, hoping to get some items, while some made their way towards the headquarters of the town to relay what was happening. Very soon, the corpses of those bodyguards were stripped clean and transported away, leaving nothing behind.
Xue Ning followed Yue Zhong closely and asked curiously: “Where are we heading to now?”
Jin Da Li had been killed, and the Greater China Alliance would definitely not let things rest. They would flip the entire town over just to find the culprit. Xue Ning wanted to know what Yue Zhong’s next move was.
Yue Zhong glanced at the lady that had opened her mouth earlier to say that Tian Jing was already dead, and ordered: “Take me to Jin Da Li’s living quarters.”
This beauty was the most mature and charming of the lot, exuding an attractive aura from head to toe. She also exhibited a hint of intelligence, and was obviously a person of position in the past.
In truth, this woman was called Zhao Ling. She had been the head of a successful group, and her net worth was in the millions. She was intelligent, strong and independent.
After the apocalypse happened, she had landed in the hands of Jin Da Li, and her independent nature had infuriated Jin Da Li, that was why he treated her like a bitch. Before that, she was the subject of his adoration and love, and knew many of his secrets.
Zhao Ling looked at Yue Zhong with immense respect and replied: Yes!”
After being punished to live like a slave, Zhao Ling found that her independence and strength as a person of position in the past didn’t count for nuts in the present world. Those who were not as capable or good looking as her would be treated nicely just because they obeyed Jin Da Li. Although she was beautiful and sexy, because she wasn’t willing to submit, she had been banished to the lowest rungs of Jin Da Li’s slaves. It caused her to suffer a huge blow, and her pride had been thoroughly destroyed.
She brought Yue Zhong and the rest to a villa, pointing to it and said: “This is the villa that Jin Da Li resided in. However, there are many experts in there. There’s also some form of alarm installed. The moment it rings, the entire Yang County would know of any strange movements here.
He followed the direction which Zhao Ling pointed, noting that there the villa covered over a hundred acres. Surrounding the villa, there were ponds, lush green trees, swimming pools, there was a basketball court even. It was built quite beautifully. It was also likely that the cost of the place must have been a few million.
Around the villa, 10 bodyguards were patrolling, and within the villa, god knows how many other experts there were.
“You guys wait here.” After that, Yue Zhong disappeared in a flash.
In just a breath’s time, he suddenly appeared in front of the 10 bodyguards, and activated his [Art of Fear], causing a powerful Spirit Attack to envelop the minds of those around him. The 10 bodyguards were caught unprepared and were immediately subjected to a terrifying hallucination, and fainted on the spot. With just a thought from Yue Zhong, it had broken their minds and caused them to be frightened to death.
After taking them down in a jiffy, Yue Zhong charged into the villa like a tornado with his speed that easily exceeded a Type 2 Lightning. As he ran, he continued to emit Spirit fluctuations through his [Art of Fear], causing anyone that came in contact to immediately convulse on the spot.
In 5 seconds, he had rushed all the way into the surveillance room, sending out a wave of Art of Fear. The 5 soldiers within the room instantly fainted and crumpled to the ground.
Yue Zhong stood for a moment in front of the monitors, taking in the images, and shot out of the room.
Following a huge resounding boom, the doors in one of the halls were kicked down by Yue Zhong, and he discovered over 20 men currently entangled with some other women.
Of the 20 over men, some were on the floor, some were roaring with laughter, riding some of the women. Some were using whips and candles to torture the women as well. The women were all naked, drenched in sweat and all sorts of substances, lying down weakly. There was a strong sexual odor in the room.
Jin Da Li would usually gift his subordinates some of the women that he was bored with, and it wasn’t just to win his subordinates over, it was also a form of entertainment.
“Who is it?!” Seeing the huge doors slammed open, a few of the men were jolted awake, and shouted out in shock. Some even wanted to prepare their equipments.
“The person who will rid the world of you bunch of trash!” A cold glint flashed in Yue Zhong’s eyes, and he shot forwards like an arrow, while the Black Tooth Blade in his hands slashed out 20 times.
Yue Zhong’s speed was terrifying. Even some Type 3 Beasts might not be able to match Yue Zhong. Each time he pushed himself, he would appear and disappear like a bolt of lightning. The 20-over men in the room that were engaged in their own romps were Enhancers of at least Level 20, but not a single one of them could defend against Yue Zhong’s strike. Every single one of them were chopped in two, causing a large amount of blood to splatter, bathing the hall in a bright blood red.
“Ahhh!!!” When one of the beauties saw the man currently atop her sliced in two, and blood splattering all over her, she couldn’t help herself and screamed out.
Yue Zhong eyed the women and barked out coldly: “Shut the hell up! Otherwise, you can die!”
As he stared at them, they felt an instinctive fear rising, and forced down their screams. This man was obviously a terrifying expert that had no qualms killing others, he would definitely not go easy on women either.
After taking care of all the experts in the hall, Yue Zhong walked towards a window and beckoned in.
Xue Ning and the rest entered the villa.
Soon, every other live personnel member was brought to the hall.
The men who were still alive were tied up and left one side, and on the other, 200 beauties of various looks, body proportions and age.
After Jin Da Li became the local tyrant, he liked to bully the men and lord over the women. Many of the women were captured into his harem, and any women he got sick of would be thrown aside or given to his subordinates.
Within the hall, Yue Zhong sat on a sofa, and Xue Ning and Liu Xiao Cha sat at his sides. By now, Liu Xiao Cha had cleaned her face of her disguise, revealing her clean and pretty face. She had a look of veneration and awe as she looked at Yue Zhong.
Zhao Ling stood quietly by one side, glancing at Yue Zhong from time to time, her heart still in shock: “So powerful!! This guy could actually take down the entire villa without a sound or alerting anybody. Incredible!”
Yue Zhong sat at the sofa and eyed Zhao Ling, asking mildly: “So what’s the deal with Tian Jing’s death?”
Tian Hao had been standing one side silently like a soulless man twitched a little, as his eyes shone with a complicated gaze when he stared at Zhao Ling.
Zhao Ling replied with respect: “This lowly one replies! After Tian Jing had been captured by Jin Da Li, she was toyed with for a while before being thrown to the subordinates. One of the perverts under him had caused her to die in one of his games.”
Tian Hao was pale white with shock as he hollered in disbelief: “You’re lying!! I saw the video of her as well as her voice in his phone! You’re lying, you’re lying to me!!”
“All the sisters here knew about this. Liu Fang, Cheng Fei, Zhang Man, we all knew.” Zhao Ling pointed to a few of the beauties in the room, before saying: “Those videos were pre-recorded. Tian Hao, have you even seen her in person?”
When Tian Hao heard this, his entire being was jolted, and it turned incredibly cold. He had never seen her once, and he knew in his heart, that what Zhao Ling said was true.
When Tian Hao heard the words, he became still, his entire spirit seemingly crushed. Ever since he became an Evolver, he had been constantly fighting outside, gaining levels, becoming stronger. It was all to protect his one and only family left in the world – his sister. However, in a moment of folly, he had caused his sister to end up in Jin Da Li’s hands, which in turn left him no choice but to serve as Jin Da Li’s lapdog. Hearing the news of his sister’s passing, even his willpower to live suffered a huge blow.
Yue Zhong took one look at Tian Hao and knew that it was a huge blow to his mental state. It felt like he had aged at least 20 years all of a sudden. He frowned and barked: “Tian Hao! If you want to die, I won’t stop you. But if you were to die like that, you would only cause the ones you love more pain, and your enemies, pleasure! Jin Da Li was your enemy, but your real enemy is Jin Guang Xuan! If it wasn’t for his protection, would a trash like Jin Da Li have been able to lay his hands on your sister? If you just die like that without killing Jin Guang Xuan, your sister would definitely not rest in peace in the netherworld! I had thought that you were a man of fortitude, but I didn’t imagine that you would prove me wrong!”
“Since you’re a trash yourself, I should have killed you at the first moment we clashed, that way you could have been sent on your way to meet your sister, and save me the burden of having to watch you wallow in self-pity!”
When Tian hao heard those harsh words, his dull eyes regained some form of clarity, as they shone with a renewed hatred and vigor: “Yes! There’s still Jin Guang Xuan. I can’t die yet. I need to make sure to punish him, and kill the entire Jin family!!”
“Who are you?” He asked.
“Yue Zhong!” Yue Zhong replied.
Tian Hao was intelligent as well, and saw that Yue Zhong’s bitter words were meant to get him back on his feet. He gritted his teeth and swore: “Good! Yue Zhong, I know you’ve spent all this effort to help me, in the hopes of getting my help. I promise you, as long as you help me with my vengeance, my life will be yours to command! I, Tian Hao, might not be a big character, but I’ve never reneged on any promises I’ve made! I swear upon my name, that as long as you, Yue Zhong, help me to kill the Jin family, I will serve Yue Zhong with all my heart and life. If I should go back on my word, I will suffer a terrible death, and be treated as a dog for the rest of my life, and never to reincarnate after I die!”
Yue Zhong eyed Tian Hao with a look of satisfaction: “Good! Tian Hao, you can be assured, I will definitely help you with the Jin family. I am the leader of Gui Ning City, where there are over 900,000 survivors. Jin Guang Xuan had been a sore thumb to me for quite some time, once I’ve returned to Gui Ning City, I can deploy my troops to annihilate them easily!”
Tian Hao was a man of integrity and valued relationships. He would do what he set his mind to do. With a character like Jin Da Li, if Yue Zhong was in Tian Hao’s shoes, he would have long since killed Jin Da Li off, as well as his entire family. He wouldn’t have allowed himself to be blackmailed. This was because he knew that with such a character, Jin Da Li would never let naive folks like Tian Hao or his sister to have a good ending. Furthermore, Tian Hao had gone against his conscience to serve Jin Da Li, such a person was extremely useful to Yue Zhong. Furthermore, he was a dual-attribute Evolver, and his potential for growth was naturally high.
When Tian Hao heard Yue Zhong’s words, he nodded slowly and sunk in his thoughts.
Everyone’s gazes also fell on Yue Zhong, their eyes filled with shock. In this world, an establishment of over a few ten thousand people was already considered a huge faction. Yue Zhong was actually the leader of almost a million people, his strength was truly something else.
Yue Zhong was about to say something else, when a loud alarm resounded throughout Yang County.
Tian Hao’s face fell as he immediately voiced out: “Not good! It means that there’s an enemy launching an attack on Yang County!”
When Yue Zhong heard that, he launched into action, throwing his .05 guns to Xue Ning: “Ok! I’ll go take a look. Tian Hao, follow me. Xue Ning, Liu Xiao Cha, Zhao Ling, I’ll leave this place to you! Xue Ning will take the lead, don’t let anything untowards happen here. If those fellows try anything funny, just execute them!”
Xue Ning was not only hot, but vicious in her methods. When Yue Zhong was engaged with Tian Hao in battle, she had taken the initiative to attack Jin Da Li to distract Tian Hao. Yue Zhong could be rest assured leaving things to her.
Xue Ning flashed an alluring smile at Yue Zhong, while saying confidently: “Got it! Boss! Make it quick, let’s engage in some 6P tonight. I’m a virgin myself, and based on my judgement, there are a few beautiful ones here that are virgins as well!”
Xue Ning’s brazen words caused Yue Zhong’s figure to slightly tremble. He had never seen such an outspoken woman before. He had a number of women at his beck and call, but most of them were filled with respect and fear towards him. They all spoke extremely courteously. At most, they would tease him once in a while, but he had never seen someone who declared herself to be a virgin, and yet suggested a 6P in the same sentence before.
“Seems like it wasn’t a bad decision to get her!” He swept an eye across her charming features and sexy figure, taking in that bright purple hair of hers that occurred due to evolving, and felt a tinge of excitement in his heart.
Yue Zhong only took a quick glance, and threw his thoughts to the back of his mind, before charging out with Tian Hao.
Outside of Yang County, there were 2 clear separate troops, one was all male, and the other, a mix of men and women. Of those troops, the men numbered in the 6,000s, while the women counted above 10,000.
With such manpower in this day and age, they can only be powerful factions, and they were precisely the Snow Palace and the Thousand Hero Alliance.
The Thousand Hero Alliance had a battalion of soldiers currently marching on Yang County, with a large number of its soldiers firing wildly.
As for Yang County, the defence mechanisms were engaged, as the heavy machine guns on the city walls began spewing fire, suppressing the Thousand Hero Alliance soldiers. From time to time, there would be a Thousand Hero Alliance soldier that fell.
Behind those soldiers, there were 2 self-propelling rocket launchers firing projectiles towards the city wall as well.
Every projectile packed a powerful punch, as one round from the rocket launcher caused a huge hole in the city wall.
City walls were a form of defence that was used in ancient times, but had been relegated due to modern warfare. It was because the firepower from modern weapons were too powerful, and a city wall would not be able to withstand the blast impact from those weapons of destruction.
In between the 2 troops at the back, there was a joint forces command post, in charge of commanding the assault by the Thousand Hero Alliance and the Snow Palace.
A man stood in the command post, his height towering at 1.9m, his entire frame bulky and muscly. He had a full beard, his hair grizzly, his eyebrows thick. He wore a clean white shirt and black trousers, and while his attire didn’t match his aura, it could not be denied that he was imposing and powerful. He was looking at a stunningly beautiful woman beside him, whose hair was a silvery-white and her body curvaceous. She had an otherworldly aura, and incredible features, which shone with an intense coldness and aloof nature. The man’s eyes were filled with an undisguised lust as he spoke: “Snow Palace Master! It’s your turn to send your people!”
The middle-aged man was precisely the leader of the Thousand Hero Alliance, Zhu Xiong Ba! He had single-handedly brought up this faction of 50,000 people and had over 7,000 direct subordinates. As for the cold and proud beauty, she was naturally the Palace Master of the Snow Palace faction, Shangguan Bing Xue.
“Attack!” Shangguan Bing Xue did not return Zhu Xiong Ba’s gaze, instead turning to a pretty, short-haired soldier decked in military uniform. This person was Yun Chu Chu.
Yun Chu Chu replied in a respectful manner and stepped out to relay the orders: “Yes, Palace Master!”
Being disregarded by Shangguan Bing Xue, Zhu Xiong Ba’s heart was filled with fury, and he entertained an extremely vile thought: “Little bitch, why the fuck are you acting so cool for? Once we’re done with the Greater China Alliance, I’ll capture you, and fuck you over and over in front of your subordinates. Since you hate men so much, your father, I, will get over a thousand men to play with you, and break you down! I’ll see if you can still pretend to be so proud!”
Even though he was thinking such nasty thoughts, his face wore an awkward smile as he looked towards the distance.
Under Shangguan Bing Xue’s orders, 6,000 men in tattered clothes walked out from their original contingent, each of them looking bedraggled. They carried long pontoons on their backs as they were forced to charge onwards by the female warriors behind, making their way towards Yang County.
In Yang County, the machine guns continued to fire out at the incoming male survivors, felling them like sowing wheat.
In just one volley of fire, the male survivors lost their composure and tried to turn and escape. These male survivors were the slaves of Snow Palace, having been made to eat the worst, do the worst kind of labour, and they naturally had low morale.
When women became vicious, they were even more terrifying than men. The entire Snow Palace basically propagated the poor treatment of the males.
One of the female enforcers brandished her sword and hacked away at the men, shouting: “Get the fuck out there!! Bunch of useless trash!!”
Numerous men were being killed left, right, centre, and behind as gouts of fresh blood dyed the scene.
Amidst the carnage, one of the male survivors could not hold back anymore and threw himself on a female soldier, shouting: “Everybody! Let’s kill these crazy women! Only then will we get a chance to survive!!”
6 or 7 men immediately jumped forwards and began to bite and scratch the woman to death.
The shout from the first man had ignited the desire to survive, and the men instantly went crazy and turned on the female soldiers, drowning them beneath their bodies.
Like this, the male slaves of the Snow Palace turned around to bite their masters.
Yun Chu Chu ran urgently in front of Shangguan Bing Xue and said: “Palace Master! The men have rebelled!”
Shangguan Bing Xue’s face frosted over, as she spoke in an incredibly icy tone: “Get Ding Mei to go and kill them all!”
In Shangguan Bing Xue’s eyes, those men were utter trash and scum, not even comparable to pigs or dogs. She did not view them as human beings at all.
Yun Chu Chu felt a chill as she replied: “Yes!”
Zhu Xiong Ba glanced at Shangguan Bing Xue, his eyes flashing with a strange glint: “This woman is truly a lunatic and a maniac!”
On the battlefield, 500 female warriors dressed in white were led by Ding Mei, as they brandished their Tang Replica Swords and charged at the men in revolt. They unleashed carnage as swords flashed everywhere.
Every single one of the women were Enhancers above Level 20, and Ding Mei was a Level 50 Evolver. As they massacred their way through the ordinary male survivors, it was like unleashing a tiger into a herd of sheep.
“Traitors will die!!” Ding Mei was like a demoness as she flashed about the crowd, her alluring body dancing in and out. With every slash she made, a male survivor would be sliced in two.
Ding Mei had been the Chief of the Scarlet Phoenix Triad back at Gui Ning City, and when she lashed out, she was truly ferocious and her attacks were vicious. Due to her obscene speed, there wasn’t a single sniper that could lock on her position.
With that valiant but cruel valkyrie leading her troops, the groupof male rebels instantly collapsed. Many of them wailed as they tried to run in all directions, but the female warriors chased them down, killing them.
“What a fool!” Yue Zhong was hidden in a corner of Yang County, observing the battlefield. When he saw the female warriors slaughtering the male survivors, he could not help but frown and curse!
While Shangguan Bing Xue’s extreme measures were enough to deter any men from harboring intentions towards the women of the Snow Palace, she had just wasted a viable resource by killing the men. They were genetically more capable of warring, and she had just decided to do away with them because of the rebellion. To Yue Zhong, she had made a really stupid call.
At the same time, Yue Zhong had seen through Shangguan Bing Xue’s true might, and it was that her core strength was the group of Enhanced female warriors. Other than them, they didn’t even have many firearms, it could be seen that her faction wasn’t too much of a threat to him.
“Great! Great! Great! Truly as I expected! This Shangguan Bing Xue is just putting on a false front.” Zhu Xiong Ba watched as the Snow Palace female warriors chased down the male survivors and pressed a button in his hands.
At that time, the soldiers from the Thousand Hero Alliance marching towards Yang County suddenly turned around and began firing at the female warriors of the Snow Palace.
Under that hail of bullets, many of the strong female warriors were shot down, and they laid in pools of their own blood.
At the same time, the rest of the soldiers from the Thousand Hero Alliance began firing their weapons at the Snow Palace soldiers out of the blue. As the attack came suddenly, over a hundred Snow Palace female warriors were shot dead.
“Those who are men, kill these stinking bitches!”
“Kill the stinking bitches!! Everybody, take action!!”
“Kill them sticking bitches!! Join our Thousand Hero Alliance and gain proper freedom. Grab your own fate, become true men, and heroes!”
As the Thousand Hero Alliance soldiers continued their assault, they hollered loudly.
The men who had been subjected to slavery and torment under the Snow Palace treatment instantly got fired up. They rose up in anger, and began their retaliation towards the female soldiers of the Snow Palace. They had been forced to do intense manual labour, and had been suppressing their hatred and fury. At this critical juncture, it all erupted, and became a huge roaring body of emotions.
“Zhu Xiong Ba! What’s the meaning of this?!” When Shangguan Bing Xue saw her soldiers being attacked, her calm demeanor was replaced by an intense cold fury, as she glared at Zhu Xiong Ba with a frightening killing intent.
8 experts above Level 40 stepped up to stand beside Zhu Xiong Ba as they exchanged cold glares with Shangguan Bing Xue.
Zhu Xiong Ba stood behind them and roared with laughter: “Hahaha! I mean to eradicate both the Greater China Alliance as well as your Snow Palace today! Everyone will have to become a part of the Thousand Hero Alliance! Shangguan Bing Xue, if you know your position, kneel down immediately. Get your entire Snow Palace to submit, and you shall swear to become my woman. I will then dote on you. Otherwise, should you fall into my hands, I will treat you like the lowest of the low, and you will become a bitch, to be fucked by every single man that I give to!!”
By now, the Thousand Hero Alliance had gotten the upper hand in the betrayal, together with the uprising by the male survivors of the Snow Palace, the Snow Palace faction was being bombarded by attacks on all sides.
Many female warriors had just gotten into formation when they were blasted by fire. Although there were many experts in the Snow Palace, even if they activated their skills and took down a number of the Thousand Hero Alliance soldiers, they were quickly disposed of as well.
Shangguan Bing Xue did not falter not display too much of a shock, instead, she assessed the situation coldly in her mind. She replied, without a hint of emotion in her cold exterior: “Without our Snow Palace, how would your Thousand Hero Alliance take down Yang County? Even if you defeat us, you will suffer casualties on your side, and you will fail in obtaining Yang County.”
Zhu Xiong Ba stared at Shangguan Bing Xue with undisguised excitement, his mind full of thoughts of this absolute beauty grovelling and moaning beneath him. His entire body quivered with adrenaline and excitement: “Haha!! You’re right! At first, it would have been extremely tough for my Thousand Hero Alliance to have to deal with both of you! However, we have received the aid of the Kingdom of God. They have provided sufficient firepower, as for your Snow Palace and the Greater China Alliance, both of you will be in my grasp today!”
At almost the same time as his speech, a loud whir of motors came roaring from a distance, as 10 Eurocopters burst into the scene, joining the battle.
The 10 Eurocopters began firing at the ground, and a number of Snow Palace warriors were instantly torn into shreds.
“Those are assault helicopters!”
“How did the Thousand Hero Alliance get those?!”
“Finished!! We’re finished!!”
When they saw the 10 assault helicopters, almost everybody in Yang County and the Snow Palace had a huge change in expression, their morale dropping to the lowest.
There were no anti-air defences in Yang County, and the Snow Palace did not possess any either. Ordinary rifle bullets would not be able to pierce the hulls of these eurocopters and even high calibre machine gun bullets would not do much to them.
Shangguan Bing Xue eyed those monsters in the sky, her face still unchanged, as she conjured a green book in her hands: “As long as I kill you, it’ll all be over!”
Zhu Xiong Ba was also a warlord and experienced fighter, and when he saw the book in Shangguan Bing Xue’s hands, his face fell suddenly and he retreated backwards hastily, shouting out: “Kill her! Kill her now!”
6 of the 8 experts by Zhu Xiong Ba’s side immediately shot forwards.
Amongst those 6 experts, one was an Agility-based Evolver, and in just a second, he had crossed a distance of over 13m, appearing in front of Shangguan Bing Xue with a dagger in his hands, slashing towards her abdomen like a vicious snake.
The move of the Agility Evolver was quick and vicious, and even an Enhancer of Level 60 would have to take him seriously. At the very least, there would have been an injury.
“Freeze!” Shangguan Bing Xue’s eyes flashed coldly as the Level 6 Treasure: Bronze book of Snow and Ice in her hands opened. A white beam of ice shot out and swept across the Agility-based Evolver, directly turning him into a block of ice, extinguishing his life.
Shangguan Bing Xue eyed Zhu Xiong Ba, and shot towards him with the speed 15 times that of a normal human, like a flying fairy.
“Go to hell, Bitch!” A 2m-tall burly man wielding a huge mace swung towards Shangguan Bing Xue. If a low level Type 2 Mutant Beast was struck by that blow, it would be flattened instantly.
The Book of Snow and Ice in Shangguan Bing Xue’s hands lit up one more, and a beam of ice shot at the burly expert, also turning him into ice.
Another 2 experts charged forwards, one turning into a were-leopard, the other into a werewolf, as they attacked her with a frightening strength and speed.
Shangguan Bing Xue quietly activated her book again, as 2 beams of ice hit the 2 experts squarely on the chest, turning them into ice sculptures as well.
Seeing how terrifying her strength was, turning everyone she willed into ice, the other 2 experts started to falter, and wanted to run, however, just as they turned, they were immediately encased in ice.
While Shangguan Bing Xue might not be a capable leader, the very fact that she was able to establish a faction that could house over 12,000 survivors, was testament to her personal power. Her Level 6 Book of Snow and Ice was incredibly terrifying. She was a Level 58 naturally awakened triple-attribute Evolver of Agility, Spirit and Stamina. At the same time, with her Second Order Ice Manipulation, as well as the control of the book, not many experts at her level were her match. As for lower-level Enhancers, they were simply unable to defend against her.
“Shit!! This woman is damn strong!” Zhu Xiong Ba felt a tremor in his heart brcause he knew she was powerful in the past, but didn’t know it was to this extent. In a flash, 6 Level 40 experts had died at her hands.
