God and Devil World - Chapter 431-440
Chapter 431: The army of the Mongol King!
One soldier replied passionately, “Captain! What’re you saying? Those who wanted to leave would have long gone!”
Another chuckled and said, “Precisely! Since we all stayed on from the beginning, we knew this day would come sooner or later!”
Situ Jin looked at these 60 soldiers who had stayed behind with him with a gratified expression.
At the beginning, there were a total of 200 who had followed Situ Jin. However, 140 of them could not stand the slow decline of the town, nor were content with the status quo, hence they chose to head for greener pastures with other factions. Only Situ Jin and the remaining 60 of them held onto their beliefs resolutely, silently keeping guard over the survivors.
Situ Jin roared out and fired at one rider, shooting him down, “Great!! Then let’s show our them fighting spirit!”
Following that, a number of gunshots rang out, and a few more riders fell from their horses.
Outside of Huyan Town, a huge ditch had been dug surrounding the entire town, forcing the riders of Guo Ming to get down from their horses to charge at the town Huyan Town was about to be embroiled in chaos.
Ying Kong and the rest saw the town about to be breached, and his face fell, “Shit!! Leader! Guo Ming and the rest had reached first!!”
“Do it! Kill anyone that resists!” Yue Zhong waved his hands and muttered coldly.
“Understood! Leader! Brothers, charge!!” Bai Xiao Sheng licked his lips, a fierce glint flashing across his eyes, as he led his men towards Huyan Town.
Following some gunshots, more soldiers under Guo Ming fell, their heads blasted.
Bai Xiao Sheng’s team was made up entirely of elites, and they charged right at the troops of Guo Ming like a hot knife through butter.
The soldiers of Guo Ming were suppressed and had no choice but to seek cover. Their combat experience and ability was vastly inferior to the elite Evolvers under Bai Xiao Sheng, and were quickly at a disadvantage.
“Father!! I’ll go help Father kill those baddies!” Yin Shuang smiled radiantly, before turning into a gust of wind and charging right for the enemy troops.
The moment Yin Shuang reached their area, many of the soldiers’ heads were blasted by her fists.
At a glance, it was truly a horrible sight to witness heads exploding out of nowhere.
Ying Kong watched in shock, as Yin Shuang continued to tear through the enemies, “Strong!! How can there be such a strong existence?”
With just her ability alone, she could easily kill all the soldiers defending Huyan Town.
“The princess is still too strong! There’s no chance for us to act!”
“Yes!! The princess is too overbearing!”
The elites under Bai Xiao Sheng could not help but discuss softly when they saw how tyrannical Yin Shuang was. It wasn’t the first time they had seen her displaying her crazy strength, but each time they saw it, they were reminded of how pathetically weak they were.
“Strong!” Yue Zhong watched Yin Shuang annihilate the subordinates of Guo Ming with a complicated expression. If there were a hundred of organisms like her, Yue Zhong did not dare imagine what faction could possibly stand up to them.
If he were to exchange blows with Yin Shuang, Yue Zhong felt that he might still be able to hold on, but if there were 2 of her, he would be killed, without even a chance to flee.
300 soldiers died like ants, while the rest lost their will to fight, and quickly got on their mounts to escape.
Those on the horses were even more obvious targets, they had just come out of their covers, and were instantly shot down by Yue Zhong and his men.
Guo Ming roared in fury and activated his Second Rank Werewolf Transformation, turning into a powerful werewolf that charged right for Yin Shuang, “Beast!! I’ll KILL YOU!!”
With a gust of wind, the little fist of Yin Shuang came blasting right at Guo Ming’s head, causing this high-level Evolver to lose his head, his body crumpling to the ground.
With Guo Ming ended in one blow, the rest of his subordinates instantly lost their minds and hurried to flee. Some even threw their weapons down to surrender.
The soldiers that tried to flee didn’t get very far, as they were quickly shot down by Bai Xiao Sheng and his team. This was a team that could take on over a hundred Evolver enemies, and it was not a problem to hunt down those fleeing soldiers.
After killing them, Bai Xiao Sheng and the rest then sent troops to go and collect those who had surrendered.
Situ Jin looked at Yue Zhong and the rest of his team that did not even number more than a hundred, his heart shaking with shock, “Strong! What vicious methods!”
The rest of the soldiers stared at that pretty and adorable Yin Shuang, whose white dress fluttered in the wind, her eyes filled with wonder. This was a girl that was cute and incredibly dangerous at the same time. The stark contrast between her and the bloody scene behind her was extremely obvious.
Ying Kong came up to Situ Jin in excitement and introduced Yue Zhong to him, “Captain! Captain! I’m back!! This is the leader of Qi Mu Town, Chief Yue Zhong of the Han Alliance!”
When the soldiers around Situ Jin heard this, their eyes flashed with a strange glint, as they looked towards Yue Zhong with caution. They were of different descent and were slightly wary of this Han.
After all, the Turk Empire, Mongol Empire and even the Manchurian Empire had acted out against one another, fighting for slaves. They were worried that this Han Alliance would turn out to be another racist hegemon.
Situ Jin saluted Yue Zhong and spoke, “I’m Situ Jin of the Borders Guard, and we’re extremely grateful for your reinforcements.”
Yue Zhong spoke warmly, “No need for thanks! This time, I’ve come with the invitation for Captain Situ to lead your troops to join us. Our Han Alliance do not segregate people by their descent or race. It all depends on your conduct and behaviour. I admire your efforts in protecting the survivors, and sincerely hope that you would join us.”
Situ Jin thought for a long while, before replying, “And if I say no?”
The moment his words landed, Bai Xiao Sheng’s eyebrows arched, and his eyes flashed with killing intent.
The rest of the Evolvers beside him also stepped forward with billowing killing intent. The moment Yue Zhong gave the command, they would immediately eradicate these people.
Situ Jin and the rest truly did respect command, however to Bai Xiao Sheng and the rest, Yue Zhong’s words were the absolute. They had brought their own troops to rush here and rescue them, in the hopes of salvaging the situation and getting the survivors.
Yue Zhong looked at Situ Jin and said slow:” If you’re not willing, then forget it! As long as you promise to not be enemies, you’re free to go. I can support you by giving you a 1,000 bullets and some other food stuff. However, the 800 survivors in Huyan Town have to become my citizens. There’s no leeway for this. This is my bottom line.”
It was rare for someone of such morals and virtue like Situ Jin even prior to the apocalypse.
With regards to this type of people, Yue Zhong was extremely favourable towards them. As long as they didn’t get in his way, he was willing to take a step back for them, as an expression of his goodwill.
Hearing Yue Zhong’s words, Situ Jin and the rest heaved a sigh of relief. They knew they weren’t a match for Yue Zhong or his men. The moment there was a clash, they would undoubtedly die. They weren’t afraid of death, but who was willing to die for naught? Furthermore, they could detect Yue Zhong’s respect and admiration for them, and this caused them to have an increasing admiration for this young leader.
Situ Jin furrowed his brows slightly, as he stared straight at Yue Zhong and asked: “More than half of the survivors in Huyan Town aren’t Han, how’re you going to deal with them?”
Yue Zhong had a serious face, “Equal treatment! I’ve said this before, I will treat them like how I treat the Hans.”
Situ Jin then expressed his agreement, “Good! I, Situ Jin, am willing to join you! I hope you will stick to your word and treat them all equally!”
“Good! Good! Good!” Yue Zhong saw how readily Situ Jin had decided to join in, and he immediately broke out in an appreciative grin. With all sorts of talents under him, as well as the addition of such exemplary soldiers, who were willing to die for their beliefs, it was truly a terrifying force to have.
Although Situ Jin and his troops were not much different from normal soldiers, with the Evolving Temple under Yue Zhong’s control as well as the Evolving Liquid, in a short while, he could easily cause them to all undergo heaven-shaking transformations. All he lacked were people that he could trust, until now.
Yue Zhong eyed them and spoke, “Situ Jin, you’ve been in the service for quite a while, you must be quite clear on the various locations of the armories. I want to know the weapon and storage facilities you and your brothers are in charge of.”
Yue Zhong wanted to get these soldiers into his wing because he knew they were privy to the locations of various military facilities. These facilities were definitely full of decent firepower. They were his targets.
As of now, a small portion of Yue Zhong’s current firepower had been brought from Hunan, whereas the rest was won through battles.
Although there were already large scale manufacturing lines set up over at Guang Xi and Hunan, both bases also require the firepower. He had hoped to gain another large supply over here in the Central Plains. If he was successful, it would help with his conquests.
Situ Jin frowned and began to ponder, in his mind, those facilities were national treasuries, and were considered national secrets.
Ying Kong saw Situ Jin’s hesitation and immediately spoke, “Captain! What are you still hesitating about? The country is already destroyed, and now, we’re all struggling for survival! We need to protect the country, but how can we just rely on our bravery and fists? We can’t protect anything like that!”
Ying Kong’s words were like a bolt of the blue that shook Situ Jin, who remembered that they were almost prepared to go against the enemies with their melee weapons. He immediately understood.
“According to what I know, there’re a total of 13 military facilities, located around these areas.” Situ Jin brought out a map and started pointing at certain locations. “This place is small, and there had been a platoon stationed there. The things inside are most likely taken. These 2 are also bases of company-level, the items inside also likely claimed. This camp had been opened by the Mongol King. There’s one location which I’m fairly certain that no one has touched yet, it’s this!”
Situ Jin pointed to one particular valley, “In this Ulan Mountain Range, there’s a field regiment secretly stationed there. In the past, I’d been deployed there once, and it’s a very secretive location. There shouldn’t be many who know of it. There’s still a regiment’s worth of equipment there.”
When everyone heard it, their eyes lit up, their expressions excited.
In this apocalypse, a single IFV could cause a small-sized faction to quake in fear. 4 tanks were enough to plow through a 10,000-strong faction.
There were many tanks within a regiment’s station, with assault helicopters, IFVs to boot. If they could gain the base, then Yue Zhong’s Central Plain faction would grow yet another level of strength.
Situ Jin reminded them, “However, Leader, the Ulan Mountain Range is truly dangerous! According to what I know, there are plenty of Mutant Beasts lurking there, and it’s a location of peril for humans. Many experts had tried to go there to hunt the Mutant Beasts to level up, but those who went had not come back. They’re mostly like dead, having become meals for the Mutant Beasts!! It’s extremely dangerous there!!”
Yue Zhong pondered a while before replying, “I got it!”
Situ Jin had become Yue Zhong’s subordinate, thus the survivors in Huyan Town were automatically Yue Zhong’s citizens. They were then herded out of the town, making their way for Qi Mu Town.
Yue Zhong had just arranged for the 800 survivors to move to Qi Mu Town, when there was a sudden appearance of a dust cloud about 10 miles in the distance from Qi Mu Town. A huge force had appeared.
One sentry caught sight of them, where there were plenty of riders, tanks, IFVs, gun-mounted vehicles, Howitzers, and his face fell, “No good!! It’s the Mongol King’s troops!! Quickly, report to the Leader!!”
“What? The Mongol troops are already here to attack?” The moment Yue Zhong heard it, his expression turned ugly, “What a timing. The Mongol King is truly not simple! Fuck!”
At this time, the Victorious Troops were still undergoing training, and the rifles in his hand numbered only about 3,000, but there were about 300,000 rounds. They lacked heavy firepower, there wasn’t even a single rocket launcher. It was the time where Yue Zhong’s Central Plains forces were still weak, and Hu-E Ran’s chosen timing of attack was too perfect.
Chapter 432: Grey Wolf Rider and Blood Eagle Rider!
After taking in all the survivors of the different triads and factions of the Han Alliance, Yue Zhong had a sizeable number of survivors. What he lacked now was time, the time for these people to become decent fighters.
It was at this crucial period that Hu-E Ran had suddenly launched his attack. If Yue Zhong chose to run, then a few tens of thousands of Han people would land in his hands. Yue Zhong had not yet established his position in the Central Plains, and he had no choice but to engage Hu-E Ran’s forces.
Atop the city wall around Qi Mu Town that was built not long ago, many commanders and their subordinates had caught sight of the approaching Mongol troops. Their faces were all unsightly.
“It’s the Blood Eagle Rider!! That’s the Blood Eagle Rider!! A-Mu Xidai!!” One commander, whose eyesight was decent, caught sight of the Blood Eagle banner and his face fell.
Upon hearing this name, the soldiers who had just joined Yue Zhong all had pale faces.
The Blood Eagle Rider A-Mu Xidai was a powerful expert on par with Dong-Er Molei of the Gold Wolf Riders. The Blood Eagle Riders under him were the strongest force under Hu-E Ran, used frequently in his battles to expand.
A-Mu Xidai had followed Hu-E Ran on his many conquests, and in each territory, as long as there was a male over 1.2m, he would kill them. The number of people that had been slaughtered at their hands were over 20,000. He was one of the most renowned generals in the Central Plains, and had defeated Dong-Er Molei in countless clashes before.
“Grey Wolf Rider Bo-Er Zi! He’s here too!!”
“Tyrant Bear Bo Lei! He’s here as well!!”
“And Grey Panther Wu Liang Shu!”
“Red Wolf Shi Yi Xin!”
“Venomous Dog Shu A-Tai!”
Looking at the various flags, the commanders all became extremely agitated. The Mongol King had over 40,000 troops, and this time, he had actually deployed half of them, especially the appearance of Blood Eagle Rider A-Mu Xidai and Grey Wolf Rider Bo-Er Zi. Other than these 2 leaders, the appearance of the other infamous generals sent shivers down the spine of the soldiers present.
Within Qi Mu Town, the Victorious Troops had not even trained for more than 10 days, and they were still lacking in skills and firepower. The Mongol King Hu-E Ran had decided to use the butcher knife to slaughter the chicken, and deployed 20,000 elites to assault Qi Mu Town. A dark shadow was cast over the entire town.
Yue Zhong looked out at the approaching troops and laughed, “The number of animals that had arrived is truly high! As long as we take them out, we will become the largest faction out here in the Central Plains! Everyone, rest assured, this time, since they dare to come, they will not get to go back. They will become the fertilizer for the grounds of Qi Mu Town!”
Li Guang gazed at the 20,000 Mongolian troops, and spoke confidently, “That’s true! At that time, when the Golden Wolf Riders and Manchurian Empire had wanted to attack our Victorious Troops, we still managed to beat them away! These are just 20,000 pigs. It would just take a longer time to kill them!”
An elite troop needed self confidence. After becoming the commander of the Victorious Troops, Li Guang had also gained some pride. As long as Yue Zhong was around to maintain the morale, he was certain Yue Zhong could lead them to victory. There was almost a blind reverence from Yue Zhong’s abilities already.
“Yes! Those are just 20,000 pigs! We can simply take them out!!”
“The Mongol King had barked up the wrong tree!! In front of us, they’re just ants!”
Seeing the confidence of Li Guang and Yue Zhong, the officers who had been riled up because of the appearance of those Mongolian experts began to calm down, and started to point at the enemy. Their confidence came from Yue Zhong himself, as long as he was around, they would not lose.
Situ Jin eyed those commanders and was secretly in admiration of their bravery. Even he himself was perspiring when he heard the names of Blood Eagle Rider A-Mu Xidai and Grey Wolf Rider Bo-Er Zi. These were the top generals of Hu-E Ran, and they were basically seasoned murderers, many experts having fallen at their hands.
One rider came from the Mongol Troop and shouted out in an arrogant tone, “Those inside Qi Mu Town, listen up! General A-Mu Xidai is ordering you to put down your weapons and surrender unconditionally! Otherwise, we will breach the defences, and not spare any living or moving things!!”
The moment his words left his mouth, his head was blasted apart like a watermelon.
Yue Zhong placed the sniper rifle down, eyeing the corpse of the rider with a cold smirk. This was his response.
Killing the envoy of the other party, this was the most blatant challenge.
Usually in a war, the envoys were never mistreated. Yue Zhong had outright disregarded that rule, and killed the envoy, expressing his desire to fight.
At the Mongolian side, a burly man decked in a black cape, and an armor made out of a Type 3 Mutant Beast hide, riding a rare Type 2 Black Stallion, its head possessing a single horn, its body covered in scales, roared out in anger, “That Han dog dares kill my envoy! When I capture him, I will chop his head off to be my toilet seat!”
This burly man atop the Type 2 Black Stallion was precisely the Blood Eagle Rider, A-Mu Xidai, one of the peak-level Evolvers in the Central Plains.
A man in blood-red robes, a helmet as well as curved blades by his waist got down on a single knee and spoke to A-Mu Xidai, “General! I’m willing to lead the men to go and get Yue Zhong’s head for you!!”
A-Mu Xidai had a face of appreciation, “Good!! Bo Lei!! You shall lead the troops to get Yue Zhong’s head for me!”
Bo Lei was one of the strongest generals under A-Mu Xidai, and had obtained much merits on behalf of his general. His conquests were second only to A-Mu Xidai.
“Yes!! General!” Bo Lei replied respectfully, immediately deploying his troops.
A thousand riders all in blood-red robes suddenly broke out from the enemy troops, and headed for Qi Mu Town under the charge of Bo Lei.
“Fool!! Riders are not meant to be used like that!” Yue Zhong eyed them and a gloating look flashed in his eyes, “Bai Xiao Sheng! Wipe them out!”
“Yes! Leader!” Bai Xiao Sheng laughed coldly and ordered, “Fire at will!”
The elites that had followed Yue Zhong all the way began to fire their weapons.
Peng! Peng! Peng!!
Following the clear and loud gunshots, Bo Lei’s riders began to fall from their horses.
Bo Lei’s countenance turned unsightly and roared out, “Not good!! Retreat!! Retreat!! All retreat!!”
Although there were a hundred Evolvers firing, Bo Lei felt that they were more frightening than a 1,000 normal soldiers. Every second, more than dozens of his men were shot down. He was afraid that by the time they reached the entrance, their numbers would have been reduced to nothing.
The Blood Eagle Riders quickly turned around and galloped back, leaving 500 corpses, their figures pathetic.
Bo Lei, who had been confident and proud earlier, was now ashen-faced as he knelt in front of A-Mu Xidai, “General! Your subordinate is useless, and cost the lives of 500 brothers. Please punish me!”
A-Mu Xidai glared at Bo Lei coldly, “Get up! This is not your fault! I didn’t expect for them to have so many shooters as well. I’ve seen it, they have at least a hundred marksmen. Your defeat was not unreasonable.”
A-Mu Xidai had partially allowed the 1,000 riders to go first to test the strength of Yue Zhong’s troops. With this, he was clearer on what Yue Zhong was capable of.
He then turned to another man who was decked in traditional Mongolian wear, his figure slightly rounder and said, “Bo-Er Zi, this Yue Zhong is truly not to be underestimated, let’s have the artillery team rain fire upon them.”
Bo-Er Zi nodded and replied, “Fine!”
He then turned to give the order to his cannon troops.
Hong! Hong! Hong!!
Round after round of heavy firepower rained down on Qi Mu Town, causing multiple explosions and the destruction of some buildings. The survivors in the town could only tremble in fear and pray for their lives.
Yue Zhong had already gotten men to evacuate the survivors, and many of them had been sent into various disaster shelters. However, there were still survivors and soldiers of Yue Zhong who were blasted to death by the artillery fire.
6 assault helicopters then suddenly flew out from the Mongol camp, and begun to fire at Qi Mu Town’s fall as well.
Under the continuous firing, a hole was blasted into Qi Mu Town’s wall.
The 6 assault helicopters then flew over the air space above Qi Mu Town.
As long as those 6 assault helicopters could enter Qi Mu Town, they would rain hell on the entire place.
“Do it!!” Yue Zhong watched them appear about 800m from Qi Mu Town, and he immediately ordered, while firing his own Electromagnetic Gun at one of the assault helicopters.
A single blade slash sliced through one, causing it to be heavily damaged. However, the slice missed the pilot and the fuel tank, weapons dock, and it was somewhat possible for the assault helicopter to still fly.
A number of shots strengthened by Enhance Bullets were fired as well, aiming for the helicopters.
Since controlling the Evolving Temple, Yue Zhong could easily support a number of Evolvers to purchase the Strengthen Bullet ability, and push it to their Level 3 stage. Although they might not be comparable to peak-level gun experts, they were still more than enough to destroy ordinary assault helicopters.
Chapter 433: Defeating the Grey Wolf Riders and Blood Eagle Riders!
Under the assault of the enhanced bullets, the 6 helicopters in the sky combusted into balls of flames and descended rapidly.
From afar, the faces of A-Mu Xidai and Bo-Er Zi were extremely ugly. Those assault helicopters were part of their trump cards, and it was enough to use 2 to subjugate an entire town. In this single battle, they had actually lost 6, this caused them to feel the pinch.
A-Mu Xidai gritted his teeth and spat, “There’re a bunch of powerful Evolvers in there!! That damned Yue Zhong, how did he get so many experts?”
The Mongol King Hu-E Ran had about 400,000 people under him, and there were not more than 50 Enhancers with the Strengthened Bullet skill. Even more so, there were only about 15 of them that were above Level 30. A-Mu Xidai could not understand how Yue Zhong had gotten so many experts.
Bo-Er Zi spat out in fury as well, “Yue Zhong, that Han, is one of the most fearsome enemies I’ve ever met. We definitely cannot let him grow. Otherwise, our Mongol people will become his slaves!! He has to die today!!”
Yue Zhong had only been active around the Central Plains for a short while, however, the battle prowess he was exhibiting was incredible, and it was enough to cause the 3 major factions to sit up and take notice.
Bo-Er Zi was unwilling to let such a big enemy run rampant.
He immediately gave another order, “All troops, attack!! Grey Wolf Riders!! Charge forwards!!”
With 4 tanks, 15 IFVs, 30 gun-mounted vehicles bringing up the front of the convoy, over 10,000 Grey Wolf Riders surged forth towards Qi Mu Town.
As the Grey Wolf Riders began to attack, the cannon firing did not stop. The heavy fire continued to suppress Yue Zhong and his troops.
The Grey Wolf Riders weren’t a motley bunch, having undergone several battles.
Yue Zhong held his Electromagnetic Gun and fired at an incoming tank.
A bright flash occurred, and the shot from the Electromagnetic Gun pierced through the tank, before another 3 consecutive shots killed the driver, halting its advance.
As the rest of the Evolvers were unable to stop the tanks, their objectives thus fell unto the gun-mounted vehicles. Following a bright flash, a number of the gun-mounted vehicles exploded in flames.
Li Guang roared out loudly, his bow firing at the Grey Wolf Riders, “Kill!! Kill these pigs! They’re all a bunch of animals!! We can just slaughter them as such!!”
“Kill them all!! Our Victorious Troops are undefeated!!”
“Our Victorious Troops are the strongest!! Whatever bullshit Blood Eagle Riders and Grey Wolf Riders, they aren’t our match!!”
“Kill them all!!”
The commanders of the Victorious Troops that had undergone the horrors of the Tian Mu Town battle began to join in the battle cry, firing at the Grey Wolf Riders.
Shouting like this was able to give vent to their fear, at the same time, raise the morale of the other soldiers. If they maintained their silence, some of the newer recruits might not be able to withstand the pressure.
“Kill those Han dogs!!”
“After we breach the walls, we will slaughter them for 3 whole days! Everybody charge!!”
“There are countless women in Qi Mu Town, after we breach through, we can play with them however we like!! Charge!! Kill those Han dogs!!”
The Grey Wolf Riders were truly elites of the Mongol King’s troops. They continued on their charge towards Qi Mu Town, facing the attacks and trudged on. As they retaliated, many soldiers of the Victorious Troops fell as well.
“We can’t go on like this!!”
Yue Zhong watched this and let out a shrill howl towards the skies.
In the sky, Greenie came swooping down, and made a grab towards the ground, pulling a IFV up into the sky with it. It then released it, swinging the unfortunate vehicle towards another, causing both to explode powerfully.
After destroying 2 IFVs, Greenie then soared into the sky, and with its powerful wings, it conjured up tornadoes with its innate ability, blowing up dust storms all around the forces of the Grey Wolf Riders.
As the wind blew, many riders could not open their eyes, whereas Yue Zhong’s forces were not affected, they could continue to pick off the Grey Wolf Riders with ease.
With Greenie dominating the skies, sending gusts of winds at the Grey Wolf Riders, it affected their firepower greatly, diminishing their damage output.
A-Mu Xidai’s face was ugly as he looked at Greenie, “Type 3 Mutant Beast! Damn it, he could actually control one!”
The threat of a Type 3 Mutant Beast was pretty clear to all the factions. However, humans likewise possessed numerous experts and had intelligence. The Mongol King Hu-E Ran had organized a hunt of a Type 3 Mutant Beast before, and under the joint attacks of the experts, they had managed to hunt one. That was why A-Mu Xidai knew how terrifying a Type 3 Mutant Beast could be.
His own Type 2 Black Stallion was tamed under a chance encounter. He did not know how to let it evolve into its Type 3 Stage, and he had no confidence he could control it even.
“Monster! How are they able to receive the help of such a monster?!”
“It’s too scary!! I’ve only heard of such beasts in the myths, how could one appear here?”
The Grey Wolf Riders hid behind covers in the surroundings, and watched Greenie flapping its wings of over 80m, their eyes filled with fear. Such a beast had surpassed their knowledge and imagination, and what was worse, this beast was helping the enemy. Their morale plunged.
Bo-Er Zi looked at Greenie in the sky and roared out furiously, “Fuck!!! Kill that beast!!”
A thousand warriors of the Grey Wolf Riders began to fire into the sky, blanketing the area Greenie was in.
Greenie’s speed was naturally fast, having reached the sound barrier, and none of them could even graze it. The main threat about aerial Mutant Beasts were because they were hard to hit. Their only weakness was their low defences, unable to compare to the land-based Mutant Beasts.
Greenie continued to soar around the skies, blowing up huge tornadoes, landing from time to time to grab a few of the Grey Wolf Riders.
The Mongolian warriors were basically helpless against Greenie, and could only fire into the sky, though their efforts were in vain.
Yue Zhong was relying on Greenie to distract the Grey Wolf Riders, while he raised the Electromagnetic gun to blast the tanks and armored vehicles into oblivion.
Greenie continued to harass the 9,000-strong Grey Wolf Riders for half an hour before flapping its wings and disappearing into the distance.
The tornadoes also came to a halt. After all, continually releasing its innate ability would take a toll on Greenie’s Stamina and power, it could not last forever.
However, the moment the dust storms disappeared, the armored division that was supposed to spearhead the assault had been completely destroyed. The Grey Wolf Riders could only rely on themselves to charge in.
Having lost the protection of the armored vehicles, the Grey Wolf Riders became ashened, their advance fraught with more dangers. Every step required them to pay a huge price.
From time to time, Greenie would suddenly appear and grab a warrior and soar into the sky, before releasing the warrior, causing the morale to plunge even further.
However, the Grey Wolf Warriors were truly the elite force of the Central Plains, even under such duress, they continued on resolutely towards Qi Mu Town.
The Red Wolf Shi Yi Xin roared out loudly, “Everybody charge!! Victory is right in sight!! Charge!!!”
At this time, loud motor sounds roared out from the distance, as 8 Thunder Fighters shot towards them from the distance.
The 8 Thunder Fighters swiftly flew over the Grey Wolf Riders and dropped cluster bombs into their midst.
Hong!! Hong!! Hong!
Following loud explosions, the Grey Wolf Riders were instantly plunged into a scene right out of hell.
AFter one round of cluster bombs, the 8 Thunder Fighters shot towards the heavy cannons team of the Grey Wolf Riders. After all, those artillery weapons were a bigger threat compared to ordinary soldiers.
The 8 Thunder Fighters quickly locked onto the artillery team of the Grey Wolf Riders, and fired a massive amount of rockets at them, causing the entire land to be obliterated.
“Retreat!! Everybody!! Retreat!!” Seeing this, Bo-Er Zi’s face was pale as a sheet, and he hurried to scream!!
A-Mu Xidai saw the terrors of the 8 Thunder Fighters as well and he ordered the same, “Retreat!! Everybody retreat!!”
The Mongol King’s forces were helpless against aerial enemies. If A-Mu Xidai insisted on battling on, their forces would definitely be annihilated.
Hearing the orders, the Grey Wolf Riders and Blood Eagle Riders quickly retreated pathetically.
Having destroyed the artillery camp, the 8 Thunder Fighters continued to give chase, killing the warriors of the Mongolian forces. Yue Zhong also made use of the chance to lead the elites of the Victorious Troops to pursue them, killing over a thousand warriors of the Grey Wolf Riders and Blood Eagle Riders, capturing 200 of them, resulting in a heavy defeat for the Mongolian troops.
Chapter 434: Refining the Blood Lotus!
Zhao Tian Gang came out from one of the thunder Fighters, hurrying to Yue Zhong as he saluted, “Zhao Tian Gang greets Leader!!”
Yue Zhong patted Zhao Tian Gang’s shoulders and laughed, “Good timing! This time, if it wasn’t for you guys, we would have been in danger.”
If Zhao Tian Gang had not brought the 8 Thunder Fighters to provide reinforcements, Yue Zhong would definitely be in for a tough battle. He might have to sacrifice numerous soldiers to protect Qi Mu Town.
Another charismatic commander came forward with 100 elites as they all saluted to him, “Lie Ming Yi greets Leader!”
Lie Ming Yi was the powerful expert that Yue Zhong had recruited from Port Fang Cheng. He had already risen to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Amongst Yue Zhong’s forces, rising in rank relied on merits and contributions.
Guang Xi and Hunan were expanding quickly. Within a short span of time, there’s no means of moving their troops.
Lie Ming Yi was extremely clear that Yue Zhong intended to expand into the Central Plains. That was why he had brought his troops to support Yue Zhong. Each of his soldiers were powerful Enhancers of above Level 30.
Yue Zhong looked at Lie Ming Yi and his troops, smiling slightly, “Very good! Your timing was impeccable! I’m currently lacking manpower, your arrival is just too timely!”
With this 100 Evolvers, Yue Zhong had a force of over 300 Evolvers and it was a force to be reckon with. If they were to clash against the Blood Eagle Riders, Yue Zhong would not be worried.
Zhao Tian Gang chuckled and turned his body slightly, “Leader, look who’s here! Hehe!”
From behind, 2 beauties stepped out. One older and the other one, younger. The older lady possesses a head full of lush black hair, her features exquisite and perfect, with a hint of valiant aura about her. The younger one was likewise pretty, with intelligent eyes and her skin as fair as snow. She was truly a sight to behold.
“Qing Wu, you’ve recovered!!!” Yue Zhong saw them and a jolt of happiness hit him, and he could not help but walk over.
When Ji Qing Wu was gravely injured by the Type 4 Flame Bird previously, Yue Zhong had placed her inside the Biological Armor to be treated. When he headed back to Long Hai City, he had left her in Yao Yao’s care under the heavy protection of the camp’s defences.
Ji Qing Wu looked at Yue Zhong with a complicated look as she replied mildly, “En! I’m alright now! Thank you!”
Ji Qing Wu knew Yue Zhong had been forced to Japan because of her and had given her the precious Level 7 Biological Armor. She was full of gratitude. However, her character was cold. So even though she was touched, her expression was still cold.
Yao Yao hugged one of Ji Qing Wu’s hands and stared at Yue Zhong hatefully. She had treated Ji Qing Wu as her most special person, yet Ji Qing Wu had specially travelled from Hunan to meet Yue Zhong. This caused her to be slightly jealous.
Li Guang and the rest of the subordinates of the Central Plains watched the 8 Thunder Fighters in excitement. The moment these metal behemoths appeared, it had allowed Yue Zhong to defeat the Blood Eagle Riders and Grey Wolf Riders. They were extremely curious about these machines as it was obvious that these were not made in China.
Defeating the Grey Wolf Riders and the Blood Eagle Riders was a huge matter. Yue Zhong had thus thrown a celebratory feast, inviting all the officials to participate.
Yue Zhong had then introduced his subordinates from Hunan to Li Guang and Situ Jin, before pointing to Ji Qing Wu, “This is Ji Qing Wu! If I’m not around, she can represent me. If I’m not around and there are things you guys need clearance, you can run it by her. In this short period, I will be heading to Ulan Mountain Range. She will take over my duties here.”
Hearing Yue Zhong’s orders, the subordinates from Hunan had no issues. They knew fully well that Ji Qing Wu had been part of the first few members of Yue Zhong’s conquests and is a reliable partner of his. Many of them were in fact under her once and they knew her strength. Hence, there were no opposition to this order.
However, the people from the Central Plains had strange glints in their eyes. If it was Yue Zhong himself, they were definitely ok with him. However, if it were someone else, furthermore, it happened to be a woman, they were unable to accept it.
Li Guang, who had one too many drinks, could not help but blurt out, “Leader! Who is she?”
The moment he said, he regretted it a little.
Li Guang’s words caused everyone’s gaze to fall on Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong eyed Ji Qing Wu and spoke bluntly, “She’s my woman and my future wife!”
When Ji Qing Wu heard that, her face flushed slightly from the joy and embarrassment and did not refute him.
Hearing his words, the rest of the general from Central Plains did not have any more complaints.
Yue Zhong’s might was truly fearsome. Not only did he arrange for a large number of experts to be sent from Hunan, he also brought ammunition. Many of the Central Plains generals were full of respect and awe of him. Since Yue Zhong had made his decision, they could only follow his orders.
After the feast was over, Yue Zhong went back into his room and pulled out a Blood Lotus, hesitating for a while, ‘This time, the expedition might be fraught with dangers. I’d better take one first.’
Yue Zhong had managed to steal the 4 Blood Lotus seeds from the lair of the Type 4 White-Scaled Tiger. He handed one to Ou Ming to run some research and one with the Long Hai City Research Center, while he himself was in possession of 2.
As to its effects, Yue Zhong was uncertain and dared not take it recklessly. Now that he had established so much, it would be a joke if he died from consuming something wrong.
In this apocalyptic world, there were many strange treasures that could empower people. At the same time, there were equally potent poisonous plants. Everyday, there would be people dying from mistaking poisonous flora as food. Yue Zhong did not want to be one of them.
The Blood Lotus was something rare and it didn’t seem to be plentiful. After a long time of research, all Ou Ming had been able to discern was that it was definitely not harmful to humans. It was just that the effects of it was uncertain.
Yue Zhong had been safe in Long Hai City then and thus there was no rush to enhance himself so he had kept it with him all this while.
After a short moment of hesitation, he popped it into his mouth.
The moment the Blood Lotus entered his abdomen, it transformed to a warm surge of energy and coursed throughout his body. It was violent, as though it wanted to tear apart his body.
Yue Zhong felt his chest aching badly and spat out a mouthful of blood. He thrashed about in his bed and smashed out with his fist as a powerful dark Dou Qi was sent out, destroying the door.
20 experts immediately charged out and surrounded the place. They only saw White Bones standing quietly near the door while Ji Qing Wu was hugging Yue Zhong who would not stop vomiting blood.
Ji Qing Wu ordered with a stricken expression, “Prepare yourselves! Sound the alarm! Everyone is to be on alert! Get Bai Xiao Sheng to send some men to guard the area!”
Upon her orders, Bai Xiao Sheng immediately led 100 peak Evolvers and stationed them at various places, heightening security.
Lie Ming Yi and Li Guang led their own troops and started patrolling. The entire Qi Mu Town was plunged into a nervous atmosphere.
The terrifying Blood Lotus was truly overbearing, causing blood to seep out his skin. He could not help but struggle in the pain. His entire body is heating up and even his perspiration was dyed with blood.
Ji Qing Wu watched Yue Zhong who was in obvious agony, her heart anxious. She was intelligent though and immediately thought of the Biological Armor, “The Biological Armor, it can save him!!”
She placed him down carefully and hurried to her own room, preparing to bring the Biological Armor over.
“No need! I can withstand it!” Just as she reached her room, she discovered that Yue Zhong had propped himself up and managed to holler hoarsely.
After trying his best for that single sentence, he closed his eyes and quickly channeled his Dark Dou Qi to refine the powerful effects of the Blood Lotus.
The medicinal effects of the Blood Lotus started to be refined by the dark Dou Qi, nourishing it and enhancing it.
Yue Zhong finally understood the usage of the Blood Lotus. It wasn’t meant to strengthen a biological entity but rather, its innate abilities. It might be the dark Dou Qi or some other inner strength, even some miraculous innate talents.
If it was given to someone who didn’t practise Dou Qi or an ordinary person lacking any innate abilities, their body would explode immediately if it’s not strong enough or bleed to death even with a high endurance.
Ji Qing Wu continued to hug Yue Zhong tenderly even as his pores ooze out dirt and blood, hoping to ease his pain.
After two hours, Yue Zhong slowly opened his eyes as a bright light flashed. An indication of yet another increase in his strength.
“Congratulations. Your dark Dou Qi has gained +2 enhancement!”
Within his mind, the notification rang out.
When Yue Zhong heard it, a smile broke out on his face, “Great! Now I can save on 4 points of skills.”
The dark Dou Qi was a powerful ability. Each time he channeled it, his entire body would be strengthened by many folds in a short time. The amount his body could be strengthened by was dependent on the strength of the dark Dou Qi. The more powerful his body and the Dou Qi, the more exponential the increase in strength.
With this dark Dou Qi skill, Yue Zhong’s strength had increased another level and he had another means of preserving his life.
When Yue Zhong opened his eyes, he immediately noticed Ji Qing Wu whose countenance was full of worry. He was immediately filled with warmth and tenderness. Although he wasn’t some saint, had killed many people and done many bad things, the fact that he still had someone who cared for him, caused him to feel contented.
Ji Qing Wu caught sight of Yue Zhong’s passionate stare. Her face flushed, intending to push him away, but at the same time, she was afraid of aggravating his injuries.
Yue Zhong looked at this incredibly beautiful woman in front of him and felt his heartbeat quicken. Initially, back at the university, Chen Yao and Ji Qing Wu were the top beauties of the school and were the dream girls of every boy. Yue Zhong had seen Ji Qing Wu a few times but he knew that they were of different worlds and that there was no chance of them ever getting together. However, he was now actually propped up on those tender legs of hers and he was incredibly excited at the twist of fate.
Yue Zhong struggled out from her embrace and reached to embrace her back.
Ji Qing Wu fell into his embrace with a whiff of her fragrance. She could detect his eagerness and her face flushed slightly, “No! Yue Zhong, you’re still not alright. I’m not ready as well. Once your injuries are ok and you’re back from the Ulan Mountain Range, I’ll give myself to you then.”
“Deal! You cannot go back on your word!” When he heard it, his heart leapt with joy and he hurriedly planted a kiss on that smooth face of hers before charging into the bathroom to clean himself.
By the time he had washed himself clean and ran out, the beauty was long gone. Yue Zhong stood there, forlorn.
Early the next day, Yue Zhong summoned Lie Ming Yi, “Do you want to be promoted?”
“I’m willing to die for Leader!” Lie Ming Yi was incredibly excited when he heard that and he immediately saluted him and announced.
Lie Ming Yi was an ambitious man who sought fame and fortune. He wanted to climb up and gain a post that was worthy of respect and admiration. Of course, he was enticed by a position that overshadowed most of the other subordinates of Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong fixed his gaze at him, “You know our rules! To promote, you’ll need to gain more merits! I’ll entrust you with some responsibilities If you can complete it, you’ll be the main commander of the Central Plains 1st Cavalry Brigade! If you think the mission is too tough, you’re free to turn it down. I hope that you can start organizing a guerilla troop, focused on destroying the forces of Manchuria, Turks and Mongolia! I want you to strike hard and fast, chipping away at their supplies as much as possible. Whatever means you have to utilize, you’re free to do so. I can give you 50 Evolvers and the necessary equipment and resources. Anything more than that, you’ll have to provide them yourself. If you can cause them so much trouble that it will be impossible for them to recover, I’ll immediately make you the commander of the 1st Cavalry Brigade! You’ll be in command of over 300 people! Next time, when it’s time to consider someone for the Regiment Commander, I’ll definitely keep you in mind!”
When Lie Ming Yi heard this, a strong sense of excitement and unbridled hot-bloodedness arose, “Your subordinate promises to finish this!”
Being ambitious required taking risks. Lie Ming Yi knew the dangers involved. However, he was fairly determined to complete it. After all, he had risked so much just to become a high ranking officer. He wanted to be part of Yue Zhong’s core team as well and be a part of the founding team of a future country.
Chapter 435: Mutant Army Ant Colony!
Lie Ming Yi was definitely an expert with a charm. He had brought his own 50 Evolvers as well as recruited over a hundred Hans who had recovered from their mistreatment and were vengeful against the 3 great factions. After that, he prepared enough equipment and led the men to set off.
Out here in the Central Plains, the usage of the Black Stallions was more widespread than cars. They didn’t need fuel and could eat anything. They would even eat corpses. On the other side, Yue Zhong led Bai Xiao Sheng and 50 Evolvers towards the Ulan Mountain Range.
Ji Qing Wu was an extremely capable woman with intelligence. After Yue Zhong left, she intensified the training of the Victorious Troops and according to Yue Zhong’s instructions, she quickly organized the Central Plains 1st Battalion made up of the old warriors.
Other than the reorganization of the army, Ji Qing Wu had managed to pull out 10,000 men to form a secondary troop and made them go through training. In the event that there was a situation, they could directly be drafted into the troops.
The secondary troops were mostly made up of civilian militia. In Hunan and Guang Xi, Yue Zhong had 20,000 elite troops but the secondary troops numbered over 100,000.
In this apocalyptic world, not only did the humans need to fend off against the Mutant Beasts and zombies. They needed to protect against other humans as well. Military might could not be compromised. The matter of the Blood Eagle Riders and Grey Wolf Riders being defeated by Yue Zhong soon spread all over the Central Plains.
Every single faction in the Central Plains began to take notice of the Great Han Alliance situated in Qi Mu Town and everyone recognized it as the 4th largest faction.
Every day, there would be wandering lone warriors seeking to join the Han Alliance. There were even a few smaller factions with dozens of people who quickly joined them, begging for protection.
Many still felt that it might not necessarily be better but since the other 3 factions were well known to be horrendous, the moment those factions attack, other than the women and kids, all the males would be killed. If not, they would be branded as slaves and treated as such.
Other than the Hans, the other lesser races also swarmed over to join the Han Alliance established by Yue Zhong.
The main difference Yue Zhong’s Han Alliance had with the Turks, the Mongolian Empire and the Manchurian Empire was the equal treatment of all races. Many of the sub-races and clans of the Central Plains had married and merged bloodlines and family lines so everyone was somehow already related to one another. It was hard to draw a clear distinction. Hence, many chose to rely on the Han Alliance.
Deep in the Central Plains, within a mansion, the Manchuria Emperor, Xuan Zhen, glared at his subordinate who was kneeling on the ground, “What? Yue Zhong had managed to defeat the Blood Eagle Riders and Grey Wolf Riders?! Is your news reliable?!”
The slave quickly kowtowed profusely, “I swear upon my life, my Liege!! This news is definitely correct. Your slave had managed to find this out after much efforts!”
“Damn bastard!!” Xuan Zhen gritted his teeth and smashed down on a table beside him, causing the table to shatter into dust.
One particular slave came up and said, “Your Highness! An envoy from the Mongolian Empire had arrived and requested an audience!”
Xuan Zhen’s face regained his ‘kingly’ aura and declared coldly, “So he’s finally here? Let him in!”
Out in the Central Plains, there was a vehicle convoy on the move, consisting of a large fuel truck, 2 gun-mounted vehicles and 10 Hummers. This was Yue Zhong’s expeditionary fleet.
Situ Jin pointed to a particular direction, “It would be Ulan Town right up ahead! After we cross it, we’ll reach Ulan Mountain Range!”
Yue Zhong sat in one of the Hummers and looked out the glass window, only to see multiple mountains in the distance formed and closely linked to one another, thus, its name.
The Ulan Mountain Range was one of the greatest protected natural locations of China. There were plenty of biological life forms within. It was a treasure trove of research for biologists and yet now, it had transformed to a hell for humans. The mutant plants within were the scariest.
Peng! Peng! Peng!
Yue Zhong and the rest headed in and immediately heard dense gunshots. The intense gunshots rang out through the Central Plains, travelling far.
“Enemies!” Yue Zhong’s face turned and he quickly leaped out his Hummer.
Yin Shuang, who was in Yue Zhong’s arms, also stuck with him as he dashed out.
With Yue Zhong’s current strength, he could easily burst out with an acceleration faster than a Hummer. In fact, sitting in the Hummer was more dangerous for him.
At the same time, other than the 2 gun-mounted vehicles, soldiers quickly jumped out from all the Hummers while their eyes were fixed in front.
Without Yue Zhong giving the order, Bai Xiao Sheng had already led 5 soldiers with him as they charged towards the direction of the sound.
Not long after, a soldier came up to Yue Zhong and said, “Leader! It’s the soldiers from the Kingdom of God fighting against an unknown faction.”
“I got it! I’ll go take a look, you all wait here for further orders!”
With that, Yue Zhong brought Yin Shuang and quickly made his way forward.
His speed enabled him to quickly make his way up a hill, where Bai Xiao Sheng and the other 4 soldiers laid prone on the ground.
Yue Zhong also crawled and looked below, only to discover 2,000 Judges currently launching an attack on Ulan Town.
In the skies, 12 Tiger Assault Helicopters fired rockets without stop, blasting the structures of Ulan Town.
On the ground, a number of Howitzers and rocket launchers began to blast the town.
The entire Ulan Town was covered in a sea of flames and within the flames, there were some armed militants seen struggling. They were putting up a brave fight but under the intense assault of the Kingdom of God, they had no choice but to retreat slowly. When Yue Zhong saw this, they were already beginning to collapse, with a majority of their numbers lost and 2,000 Judges still making their way in.
Yue Zhong looked down and sighed, “We were too late!”
If they had been here a day earlier, they might have been able to cooperate with the militants in Ulan Town to fight against the Kingdom of God.
However, now, the Kingdom of God had already obtained victory and if Yue Zhong were to charge in right now, it was likely that both sides would suffer greatly.
It was a force made up of Judges after all. Each of them having undergone a job change and had combat strength vastly superior to an ordinary soldier. Furthermore, they were well-equipped with countless threatening and fearsome weapons and explosives. Even someone as strong as Yue Zhong might die if not careful.
Right at this time, something strange happened. A huge sea of something brown began to charge at Ulan Town from the distance.
“Level 8 Strange Beast: Mutant Army Ant! They devour everything in their path!”
Yue Zhong fixed his gaze on them, noting that each of them were only about the size of a human’s fist, and the swarm was frighteningly large. There was a strange sense of his hair standing, as he could tell that with the size of the swarm, it was like there were over a billion ants within. Such a swarm was even more terrifying than a horde of zombies
The 12 helicopters in the skies began firing down at the Mutant Ants, blasting them with explosives and fire, consuming the Mutant Ants.
Under that powerful assault, most of the Mutant Ants turned into ashes. However, all of a sudden, a particular Mutant Army Ant flew out of its swarm with wings! It flapped its wings before soaring towards one of the assault helicopters. These flying Army Ants began to fire corrosive acid to burn through the covers of the tanks, before using their sharp jaw to tear the armor open.
Not long later, the helicopters began to lose their outer hulls, as the Mutant Army Ants tore into the metal and ripped the pilots into shreds.
Following the miserable screams, the helicopters that lost their pilots began to wobble and crashed towards the ground in powerful explosions.
If the 12 helicopters had been utilized properly, they could easily turn the tides of any battle. However, such powerful equipment were actually torn like paper by the small Mutant Army Ants, causing Yue Zhong to feel a chill in his heart.
Yue Zhong looked at the 12 helicopters being destroyed and hurried gave an order, “Quick, retreat! Retreat!!! Bai Xiao Sheng!!! Lead the men away!!! Towards the North!!! Wait for further orders!”
Bai Xiao Sheng waved his hands and led the elites away from the place hastily. Yue Zhong’s body had evolved to a terrifying degree. It would be hard for him to protect his soldiers but if he was alone, he had confidence that he could break away if things get rough.
The Judges of the Kingdom of God within the Ulan Town had quickly received the news of the Mutant Army Ants colony and they hurried to escape from the town as well.
However, what caused them to be despondent was that all the tanks, IFVs and motorcycles had already long left the place, abandoning their own comrades.
The speed of the Mutant Army Ants was fast. Although their defence was weak and could be slapped to death by an ordinary person, their speed was fast, reaching 80km/hour and thus, the armored troops didn’t dare stay behind to wait for their friends.
Chapter 436: Rescue!
“Damn it! Those white bastards! They should all fucking die!”
“Fuck! Damn white apes! This senior had already given my life to them and they dared to betray us?! Fuck!!! If there’s a next life, this senior will fucking kill them all!!!”
The Judges that had been abandoned were the black and asian people.
In this apocalypse, whoever could provide the milk would be one’s mother. As long as one could live, there were many who chose to rely on their old enemies. Selling themselves out for foreigners wasn’t a big issue. Not everyone was adamant on nationalism anyway.
In the Central Plains, the Kingdom of God had managed to form a few units made up of Chinese. Now that the whole unit was in danger, the Europeans had chosen to abandon their comrades that weren’t of the same race as them.
One of them who obviously had a commanding aura about him hollered out, “Retreat! Back into Ulan Town! We will defend ourselves there! Only then there might be hope!”
Under his lead, the 2,000-strong unit quickly went back into the town.
The colony of Mutant Army Ants seemed to have smelled the scent of humans and began to swarm towards Ulan Town.
The Judges started firing wildly as they found positions.
Amidst the dense firing, many of the Mutant Army Ants were quickly killed but their speed was simply too fast. After paying the price of numbers, they managed to pounce onto a particular Judge and their sharp mandibles quickly tore into him.
“ARGH!!! IT HURTS!!! IT HURTS!!!” The soldier screamed out as a huge chunk of flesh were torn by the Mutant Army Ants. With a slap, he managed to flatten one.
“AH!!! AH!!!” However, when the ant was smashed, the innards splashed out like acid, corroding his right hand, causing him even more agony.
“NO!!! NO!!!” Right after that, a dozen other ants had pounced on him and were already tearing into him, as he screamed out and struggled futilely.
More ants swarmed his body, covering every inch as they bit him and the unfortunate soldier soon stopped moving.
By the time the Mutant Army Ants moved on, there was only a bunch of bones left, without a single shred of flesh.
Under the pressurizing march of the Mutant Army Ants, many of the elites of the Kingdom of God were quickly reduced to bones, their screams ringing out throughout Ulan Town.
“Should I save them?” Yue Zhong eyed the abandoned elites of the Kingdom of God, feeling conflicted. He then charged over towards the colony.
Seeing Yue Zhong approach them, a number of the Mutant Army Ants began to crawl towards him. However, Yue Zhong had already swapped out his Hurricane Necklace and activated the ability, sending gusts of tornadoes out in all directions, blowing the ants away.
The number of ants might be crazy, but their strength wasn’t too high. Thus, it was easy for them to be blown away.
By now, the gunshots in Ulan Town was practically deafening. There was no stop to them and all the Judges within were putting their lives on the line. They didn’t care about the expenditure of the bullets and their guns continued to fire without stop. Hand grenades were utilized freely, blasting patches of the ants to oblivion.
These soldiers were truly the elites of the Kingdom of God, if an ordinary person were to fight this seemingly unending swarm of ants, they might have lost all hope. However, these Judges were still fighting on with a resolute will and it was truly something to admire.
Yue Zhong blew a large number of ants away and this scene attracted the attention of the Judges in Ulan Town.
Yue Zhong barked out loud, “I’m Yue Zhong! I know you guys are the Judges from the Kingdom of God. I have an enmity with the Kingdom of God and thought they have abandoned you, I’m here to rescue you! Let me ask you this, if I were to save you guys, are you all willing to work for me?!”
Yue Zhong did not want to expend his strength for no reason so he opened with this negotiation.
“I’m willing! As long as you save this senior, this senior will definitely give my life to you!”
“Great! Yue Zhong, just based on your actions of charging here to save us, as long as you can cover this ass of mine, this senior will serve you for life!”
A number of the Judges began to shout back. After all, they had sold themselves to the Kingdom of God purely to lead better lives. There was no true loyalty in that sense. Thus, they had no qualms switching sides to serve Yue Zhong.
This was the problem with a lack of unity or bond. Such a situation would not have happened in the Mongolian Empire, Manchurian Empire or even the Turkic Empire. They were all of one race and one mind. The nationalistic view of their respective groups serve to bond the people together. Even if they were to be defeated, they wouldn’t serve Yue Zhong so easily.
Yue Zhong had captured many of the Mongolian elites, but almost none were willing to serve him. This was part of the advantages of being in a nationalistic group.
The middle-aged man who had first led the troops shouted loudly, “I am Chen Hong Yi, Deputy Commander of the Kingdom of God’s Mongolian Branch 2nd Battalion. Yue Zhong, as long as you save all of us, the entire unit here will serve you!”
“Good!” Yue Zhong waved his hands and sent out his Devil Flame, as a flaming tornado took form in his hands. He then slapped out at the hands and the powerful fire swept towards the colony and started to consume them.
To these Mutant Army Ants, the fire was their strongest bane. With a single sweep of Yue Zhong’s Devil Flame tornado, huge patches of the colony started to burn. The crackling of the ants in the fire resounded throughout. Just this attack alone easily caused over 3,000 of the Mutant Ants to be cooked.
After Yue Zhong had enhanced his Devil Flame to its Second Order stage, it was truly much more fearsome. He could conjure up a Devil Flame tornado without expending much Spirit. Because of this trump card, he dared to step forward to save the elites of the Kingdom of God.
Witnessing this, the Judges quickly broke out in cheers. There were only 4 of them who had flame-based skills and even then, there was no way to compare against Yue Zhong. They knew that even if the Mutant Ants feared fire, they could not rely on their own flame attacks to defeat the ants.
“Gather towards me! All of you!” Yue Zhong looked everywhere and saw a patch of grass that had been cleared and quickly ordered.
Chen Hong Yi roared out loud, as he swiftly made his way towards Yue Zhong, “Everyone, blitz towards Leader Yue Zhong’s position!!! Everyone, on me!!!”
Gunshots, explosions and all sorts of abilities were launched as the remaining 1,800 or so swiftly broke through and charged towards the field.
Yue Zhong’s hands lit up as a long Devil Flame defensive barrier was conjured around the field.
The Mutant Army Ants swarmed over and surrounded the place. After waiting a while, they lost their patience and launched an assault.
The moment they went through the fire, their bodies started to burn as crackling sounds rang out, their bodies turning into ash.
The remaining soldiers continued to watch from their positions in fear, uncertain if they could hold out.
Should the Mutant Army Ants breach the flames, they would become food for them.
Although the Devil Flames did not seem to burn high, they burned strong, incinerating the tens of thousands of ants, without any sign of extinguishing.
As the ants continued to launch themselves into the fire, the flames continued to consume them. After burning for 20 minutes, half the colony had been wiped out and the remaining ants turned around, swarming towards another location.
Seeing this, the soldiers all heaved a sigh of relief. Many slumped to the ground, gasping for breath. Their backs were drenched in their cold sweat.
The retreat of the Army Ants left behind a huge amount of Survivor Coins, 20 White Boxes and a few blue crystals.
Yue Zhong, whose countenance was slightly pale as well, went to collect all the drops and walked towards the field.
Yue Zhong looked at them and declared solemnly, “I have already made good on my word! Are you guys willing to fight for me?”
One bearded and burly man laughed savagely, “Hahaha! Yue Zhong, you’re really stupid! You actually believed what we said? What a fool! I know you! You’re the highly sought after enemy of the Kingdom of God! As long as we kill you, we will be received into the European quarters and lead a good life! You have just used up so much of your strength, as long as we all attack you, we can become revered! Everyone! Attack! We’ll live like kings and enjoy ourselves!”
Chapter 437: Taking in the defeated!
The burly man was pretty insidious. Before he finished speaking, he had already retreated. He was extremely clear about Yue Zhong’s strength and he wanted to incite the rest of the judges in killing Yue Zhong, whereas he didn’t want to engage him personally. After all, no matter how strong Yue Zhong was, against 1,800- experts, it was impossible for him to win.
“If you want to enjoy riches, you must be alive to enjoy!” Yue Zhong activated his Shadow Steps and immediately made to grab the neck of that burly man, before pulling him out from the crowd.
His right hand then slashed down at the arm of the burly man, covered with Dark Dou Qi and combined with his 12-time Strength, he dismembered the burly man’s arm.
“Ah!!! My hand!!!” The burly man screamed out in agony.
Yue Zhong then flung the offender forcefully to the ground like a broken toy, smashing him. The impact caused the insides of the warrior to jolt violently and he began retching blood while twitching on the ground.
Seeing how vicious and decisive Yue Zhong was, the rest of the Judges sucked in cold air and retreated involuntarily.
Yue Zhong swept his gaze across the Judges, “Who else still want to try and take my head?”
One Judge came out and spoke loudly, “I’m willing to work for you! However, you must ensure that I’m fed! As long as I have food, I’m willing to serve you! Those assholes from the Kingdom of God do not treat us like people! If it wasn’t for the fact that I needed to eat, this senior would have long fallen out with them.”
In this apocalypse, many people were willing to go sacrifice or bend their principles just for a meal. Women were willing to sell their bodies for a single bun, while men were willing to bow and serve others just to eat.
The Judges present were mostly Chinese and many had been recruited by the Kingdom of God purely for the sake of survival. Their equipment were very ordinary ones, or those which had been disposed by the Kingdom of God. Most of the heavier and more powerful weapons were in the hands of the Europeans and thus, these Judges were usually treated as cannon fodder.
Under such circumstances, it was natural that these Judges were unhappy. However, because of their fear of the Kingdom of God, they didn’t dare to rebel and could only continue to serve obediently.
Yue Zhong looked at the elite soldier who had pledged his services first and said appreciatively, “Good! What’s your name?”
The Judge replied, “I’m Yu Wen Ying!”
Yue Zhong chuckled, “Alright, from now on, you’re a Battalion Commander of Major rank!”
He had always treated the first one to submit to him well, this would thus ensure the ones behind to be more motivated to do the same.
Yu Wen Ying immediately got down on one knee in joy, “Many thanks Leader! Yu Wen Ying is willing to die for Leader!”
“Zhang Wen is willing to serve Leader!!!”
“Liu He is willing to serve Leader!!!”
With a way out, many of the Judges began to submit to Yue Zhong. Since the Kingdom of God had abandoned them, they had nowhere else to go and could only choose to go with Yue Zhong.
Over 1,300 of them chose to follow Yue Zhong, whereas the remaining 500 stood by in 5 groups and watched coldly.
One burly man with a fierce face, eagle-like eyes and a hooked nose was silent for quite a while before saying, “Brother Yue Zhong! This time, I, Niu Da Li, am grateful to you for saving us I’ll be sure to repay this in the future. I’ll say my goodbyes for now! Brothers, let’s go!”
Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed dangerously, “Wait! Niu Da Li, what did you promise earlier? Are you trying to go back on your word?”
Niu Da Li turned to stare at Yue Zhong, his own eyes flashing coldly, “Yue Zhong! We’ve gathered here amicably, let’s leave here amicably! Don’t force my hand! I know you’re strong. However, I have over a hundred brothers who’re willing to go through hell with me!”
Niu Da Li had over a hundred of elites of the Kingdom of God and he wanted to make use of this chance to start his own faction.
After he finished speaking, the hundred Judges stepped forward with their guns aimed at Yue Zhong and the atmosphere turned extremely heavy.
Of those who had chosen to submit to Yue Zhong, many hesitated. Only Yu Wen Ying and a dozen others raised their guns and pointed back at Niu Da Li.
Yu Wen Ying was of a mind to rely on Yue Zhong, whereas the rest were still unprepared for such a critical situation.
Yue Zhong then pointed to Niu Da Li and spoke coldly, “Since this is the case, you can take your 100 brothers with you to hell! Yin Shuang, wipe them out!”
Following a bright, clear laughter, Yin Shuang shot towards Niu Da Li like a tornado as a small fist blasted towards his head.
Niu Da Li was also a Level 30 Evolver and his danger perception was pretty high. The moment Yin Shuang moved, he was overwhelmed with hair-raising sense of danger and his hands had just moved slightly. However, Yin Shuang’s snow-white fist had already arrived at his head, blasting it apart.
Killing Niu Da Li with a single attack, Yin Shuang continued to fly about, her fists being weapons of mass destruction. They continued to rain blows on Niu Da Li’s brothers, causing many of their heads to explode in a shower of blood and brain.
“No!” After another 10 soldiers had their heads exploded, the rest of Niu Da Li’s men finally responded and they started to fire wildly in the skies to no avail.
Yin Shuang’s speed had already exceeded the sound barrier and the Judges having gathered together looked just like a bunch of fat sheep. In just 20 seconds, Niu Da Li’s 100 brothers were all wiped out. Not a single one of them could withstand a blow from her.
After she had easily disposed of those soldiers, Yin Shuang ran back to Yue Zhong with a wide and innocent smile, saying, “Father! Father! I’ve killed them all! Did I do well?”
The rest of the Judges watched in horror as this little girl in white with a sweet smile walked away from destruction and their skin crawled, as though they had just seen a demon.
Yue Zhong grinned and ruffled her hair, before giving her a lollipop, “Well done! My Yin Shuang is the smartest and the best! This is your reward!”
Yin Shuang grabbed the lollipop and leaped into his arms, before pecking him on the cheeks, “Thank you Father! Father is the best!”
As he held her, he turned around to eye the rest of the 400 soldiers still standing on the fence, “What are your plans then? Submit to me or choose to die here?”
The Kingdom of God elite soldier whom the rest had gathered around decided not to hesitate anymore and kneeled in front of Yue Zhong, “Zhang Liu Bo is willing to serve Leader!”
“Zhao Yi is willing to serve Leader!”
“Ma Dong is willing to serve Leader!”
“Liu Xuan is willing to serve Leader!”
The rest of the little ring leaders did not dare to bargain further and immediately submitted. They did not want to become cold corpses.
Yue Zhong asked, “Good! I want to know, why does the Kingdom of God want to attack Ulan Town?”
The Kingdom of God had a motive behind every operation. If it wasn’t for expansion, there must be some technologically advanced blueprint.
“Leader! I do not know! I think the same goes for everybody here.” Zhang Liu Bo hesitated before replying, “The Kingdom of God is cautious against us as we aren’t of the same race as them. We only have to follow their orders and the end goal or motive is never made known to us.”
Yue Zhong’s gaze fell upon Yu Wen Ying.
Feeling his gaze, Yu Wen Ying immediately responded, “Leader! It’s true! All the higher-ups in the Kingdom of God are Europeans. Our Chinese, Japanese, African, Thai and other counterparts are only eligible to become heads of our own units. All the secrets are held in the hands of the western people. They have never told us anything.”
The Kingdom of God viewed all other races with contempt. They would delegate tasks that they didn’t want to these people and would not tolerate their existence within the upper echelons.
Even within the westerners, there were different tiers as well. The highest level was the Aryans, while the lowest was the Jews. However, even then, the Jews were of a higher standing than any other non-white race.
Yue Zhong could not help but frown.
“Leader! I know!” Right at this time, a small voice resounded.
Yu Wen Ying cast a suspicious glance at that soldier as he reprimanded, “Yang Xiong! Are you for real? Don’t make some wild guess and mislead the Leader!”
The handsome Yang Xiong flushed as he said, “Yesterday, I slept with a white chick. She spoke some stuff in her excitement. Within the Ulan Mountain Range behind Ulan Town, there’s a hidden military facility. This time, we were sent here to obtain the equipment inside there!”
Yue Zhong immediately clenched his fist, “Indeed! They had also received the news then?”
The Kingdom of God had already begun large-scale revitalizing works and could manufacture things like the Thunder Fighter. However, they had to face the whole world, thus, they still required some of the legacies left behind from prior to the apocalypse.
They already had a large amount of info with regards to major facilities as well as satellites. This was how they could monitor the entire Earth.
Yue Zhong then asked, “To whom does the territory of Ulan Town belong to?”
Zhang Liu Bo laughed bitterly and shook his head, “Not too sure. Based on my conjecture, I think they should have been some Border Guards as well as some survivors.”
Yue Zhong then surveyed the area and spoke solemnly, “Yu Wen Ying, Zhang Liu Bo, Zhao Yi, Liu Xuan, Ma Dong, go get some men to scout out the town.”
“Yes! Leader!” The 5 of them immediately organized small search teams and set off.
Ulan Town still had a number of survivors hiding earlier but with the march of the tens of thousands of Mutant Army Ants, everything had been consumed, leaving only bones behind.
Seeing the bones, Yu Wen Ying and the rest had horrid expressions. At the same time, they could not help but rejoice for the timely arrival of Yue Zhong. At most, they could have killed over a thousand more but they would definitely have died if not for him.
Going back to Yue Zhong side, Yu Wen Ying had an unsightly expression, “Leader! It’s bad! All the rations have in Ulan Town had been consumed by the Mutant Army Ants. There’s not even a rat left. What do we do?”
Zhang Liu Bo and the rest also looked at Yue Zhong anxiously.
Each time the Kingdom of God sent a large convoy out, there would be food trucks that accompanied each mission. Since those trucks had been driven away by the other elites of the Kingdom of God and the entire ration supply of Ulan Town had been wiped clean, these ex-KoG soldiers were getting worried.
They had brought along dried biscuits and chocolates but it wasn’t much. Without enough nourishment, they would succumb to hunger and be unable to utilize more of their strength.
Yue Zhong pointed to one room, “Don’t worry about food! I’m prepared! The food over there is enough to last for 3 days.”
Zhang Liu Bo and the rest looked at the room suspiciously. They had searched the place once but there was nothing. However, since Yue Zhong said so, they could only send someone to go search.
Yu Wen Ying came out with an excited expression, “Rations! Plenty of them! Leader, you’re truly something else!!”
He had discovered over 3 tonnes of rice, which was enough to last them for 3 days.
The eyes of the soldiers were also filled with a newfound respect. They knew that it had been Yue Zhong’s doing. Being able to conjure up so much, it proved that Yue Zhong’s strength was unfathomable and his ways, mysterious.
One sentry came rushing up to the group, warning, “Not good! Leader! There seems to be a division making their way over here. Their aim seems to be the Ulan Town as well.”
Yue Zhong frowned, and walked over to the border, “What? Come with me! Make sure to maintain your cover. Don’t let the enemy discover we’re here.”
Coming to the side, Yue Zhong noticed a number of riders atop Black Stallions, kicking up clouds of dust as they galloped towards Ulan Town.
“The Gold Wolf Riders! The Turkish forces!” Yue Zhong could see the Gold Wolf emblem on the uniforms and his expression turned unsightly.
Chapter 438: Ulan Mountain Range!
“What should I do?” Yue Zhong pondered while clenching his fists tightly.
There were over 1,700 soldiers that were above Level 20. Their strength was formidable. However, in the earlier clash against the Mutant Army Ant, many have spent their bullets and abilities. Without their bullets, they were just ordinary Level 20 Enhancers.
Other than the lack of ammunition, many of the soldiers had taken part in the battle in Ulan Town. After that, the clash with the Mutant Army Ants had exhausted them. Furthermore, the most important thing was that, they had just swore fealty to Yue Zhong and he had no confidence of fully controlling these men. He was worried that the moment the battle turned for the worse, they might lose their will and order will collapse.
Yue Zhong then ordered, “Convey my order! Everyone is to hide and not to reveal your traces. Wait for further instructions!”
“Yes! Leader!” Yu Wen Ying and the rest quickly hid themselves in Ulan Town.
The Enhancement level of these soldiers weren’t high but they had undergone special training while under the Kingdom of God. Covering their traces while hiding was one of the basic skills.
Soon, Ulan Town became a dead town without any movements.
“This is Ulan Town!” Within the Gold Wolf Riders, one particular male who looked about 27 or 28, with a huge beard and a towering frame, muttered as he looked coldly at Ulan Town.
Another Turkic general spoke with a feverish look, “General Abudidama! This is Ulan Town. Once we have crossed it, we will have reached the Ulan Mountain Range. As long as we can gain that facilities’ supplies, our Gold Wolf Riders would become the strongest faction out here in the Central Plains!”
Abudidama was one of the strongest Evolvers in the Turk Empire. He and Dong-er Molei were 2 powerhouses under Wu-er Tuotuo. He had followed Wu-Er Tuotuo throughout all his battles and conquests and had torn countless experts apart.
For the mission to obtain the regiment’s worth of equipment, Abudidama had brought along 2,000 elites of the Gold Wolf Riders.
The possibilities on possessing an advanced battalion with sufficient supplies and firepower was endless. Yue Zhong had demonstrated this by making use of the Thunder Fighters he procured from Qi Mu Town. In that battle, because of the 8 Thunder Fighters, they had managed to destroy the Blood Eagle Riders and Grey Wolf Riders. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have been that easy for Yue Zhong to repel those forces.
Abudidama’s cold voice rang out, “En! This time, the Mongol Empire and Manchurian Empire had also obtained the same news. We need to be the fastest, the first ones to obtain those supplies. Convey my order. No one is to remain in Ulan Town for more than a second necessary. We have to make haste for Ulan Town!”
One Turk general had an expression of concern, “General! Isn’t this too dangerous? What if there are people lying in wait for us in Ulan Town?”
Abudidama calmly replied, “Impossible! Those Mutant Army Ants had just gone through this town. Those fearsome creatures would have already cleaned the entire area of living things. Even if there were people here, they would be a pile of bones by now.”
The Mutant Army Ant colony was one of the most feared entities out here near the Ulan Mountain Range. Abudidama had come across them once and other than himself and a few other Agility-based Evolvers, everyone else had been consumed entirely. Remembering the terror that those creatures posed, he couldn’t help but feel a chill.
The Turk general immediately chose to kiss ass, “General is wise!”
Under Abudidama’s lead, the 3,000 Gold Wolf Riders immediately kicked up a cloud of dust and charged through Ulan Town, following the road towards the Mountain Range.
When they had left, Yue Zhong came emerged from a building. He had decided not to ambush them, because Abudidama would fulfil the role of being cannon fodder, testing the depths of Ulan Mountain Range.
Yue Zhong then gave an order to Yu Wen Ying, “Convey my orders! Everyone is to begin fortification works on Ulan Town! As for food and other resources, I will arrange for supplies to be transported here!”
There were all sorts of Mutant Beasts and Plants within the Ulan Mountain Range, and it was a good training ground. If those Evolvers of above Level 40 and above wanted to improve themselves, they could only head over to the mountain range to train.
Upon controlling Ulan Town, in the future, Yue Zhong could use it to produce Level 40 Evolvers.
Yu Wen Ying and the rest immediately got to work the moment Yue Zhong passed his orders and began work in Ulan Town. They had undergone basic structural works and practice under the Kingdom of God as well and many had tools on them. Adding on to the fact that they were Enhancers, their Strength being higher than ordinary people by more than 3 times, the works went easy.
At the same time, Yao Yao began to lead an expedition to transport resources and supplies from Qi Mu Town to Ulan Town.
Bai Xiao Sheng quickly brought 50 elites towards Ulan Town and Yue Zhong handed the defence of the town to him, before he chased after the Gold Wolf Riders by himself.
Yue Zhong was not confident in leaving the town to Yu Wen Ying and the rest. Hence, he got Bai Xiao Sheng and Yin Shuang to stay behind.
With Yin Shuang, that fearsome girl-demon staying put in Ulan Town, even if any of the soldiers from the KoG had any strange thoughts, they could only harbor it in their hearts. Bai Xiao Sheng and the 50 elites were thus also part of the control Yue Zhong had designated.
These 1,700 ex-KoG soldiers were all trained and changed classes to soldiers. With enough ammunition and supplies, they were fearsome soldiers.
They were not some motley bunch and although there were only 1,700 of them, with enough logistics and supplies, they could take down over 5,000 elite Japanese soldiers of the Takama-ga-Hara. Not even 10,000 ordinary soldiers were a match for them. The moment they came under him, Yue Zhong finally possessed enough manpower to go against the other factions in the Central Plains.
Since he wanted to power these 1,700 soldiers and didn’t want to abandon the regiment’s worth of supplies in the Ulan Mountain Range, he could only go after Abudidama by himself.
Currently, Yue Zhong had already enhanced himself to be equivalent to an elite battalion. It can be said he was a one-man army himself. He had the might to contend against small factions.
He did not have any Black Stallions but with his Swift Shadow Bike, he soon managed to catch up to the forces of Abudidama.
The 3,000 Gold Wolf Riders had been diligent and rushed all the way, choosing only to rest for the night at the foot of the mountain range. Abudidama had then brought them in after they were well-rested.
3,000 people proceeded slowly in the forest with all of them on high alert. They had followed the road that was already carved out, not daring to step out of line.
In this apocalyptic world, the forests and jungles were dangerous places. It is qual to city areas with dense populations. In the wilderness, there were all sorts of terrifying Mutant Beasts. If one wasn’t careful, even a peak-level Evolver could possibly die at the hands of a Mutant Beast.
The scent of these 3,000 people had obviously attracted some of the powerful hunters within the forest and following some rustling sounds and movements, multiple pair of eyes with ferocious glints stared out at Abudidama and his men.
Abudidama could sense the danger as a high-level expert and he instantly felt a bad feeling, “Not good! We have been targeted!”
“AHH!!!” At this time, from behind the troops, a scream resounded as a Mutant Wolf leapt out from the tall grass, pouncing onto one of the Gold Wolf Riders, tearing into his throat. The scream was the last sound he made.
At almost the same time, over a hundred wolves that had been hiding in the grass leaped out, and they begun to attack the various warriors of the Gold Wolf Riders, ripping their throats.
Over 200 members of the Gold Wolf Riders were taken out within that instant and some were even injured from the swipes and slashes.
“Damn it!” Abudidama was furious and he shot through the Mutant Wolves with his speed of 26 times, waving his gold-coloured curved blade as a number of sword beams slashed out at the Mutant Wolves. Many of them were easily slashed in two by him, their blood dying the ground red.
Yue Zhong, who had activated his Second Order Stealth and was hiding in one corner watching, felt a chill in his heart, “Agility-based Evolver! He must be a peak-level one!”
Yue Zhong’s own speed was 25 times that of a person, having exceeded a Type 2 Lightning and few Evolvers could match up to him. The fact that Abudidama’s speed could rival his and be even faster was proof that he definitely was an Agility-based Evolver that focused on the development of speed.
Abudidama entered the fray and together with a few other experts, they managed to quickly clear the Mutant Wolves pack. However, they paid the price of over 300 people.
“AH!!! Help! HELP!”
“Save me! Save me!”
Suddenly, screams of help erupted from the Gold Wolf Riders.
Chapter 439: Man-Eating Mutant Flower!
Yue Zhong caught sight of countless Mutant Mountain Leeches the size of 3 fingers, falling like rain, landing on the bodies of the Gold Wolf Riders.
They crawled all around the bodies of the Gold Wolf Riders who were screaming out and struggling, helpless as they were sucked dry of their body fluids before crumpling to the ground.
The warriors of the Gold Wolf Riders tried to slap the leeches away to no avail. Each time they slapped out, part of their flesh would be ripped off together with the leeches, their blood flowing profusely. It was a horrific sight.
Another hundred or so of the warriors struggled frantically and were unfortunately sucked dry by these Mutant Leeches.
Just as these Mutant Leeches managed to suck those Gold Wolf Riders dry, they slithered towards the remaining Gold Wolf Riders with insane speed, looking like little snakes.
After their mutation, these Mutant Mountain Leeches had undergone drastic changes, reaching powerful suction speed and movement.
When they saw the emaciated corpses of their comrades, the Gold Wolf Riders were terrified and began to back up as they hacked and slashed at the Mutant Leeches, slicing them in half.
The life force of the Mutant Leeches were stubbornly strong. Even after being sliced in two, they still wouldn’t die. Many had even managed to latch onto more Gold Wolf Riders, their sharp teeth sinking into the bodies and began to suck greedily.
The warriors were getting frightened and many started to fire their weapons.
These Mutant Leeches might be small but their numbers were vast and the whole swarm of them moved towards the warriors, looking like a sea.
From time to time, screams would ring out from the group of Gold Wolf Riders, many of them becoming dried corpses.
Abudidama looked at the densely packed Mutant Mountain Leeches and roared out, “Guxianli! Eradicate these damned worms!”
Abudidama’s main strength was slaughtering on the battlefield. As for the clearing of such creeps, it would be like slapping flies.
One particular beautiful woman stepped out, her nose high and sharp, her skin fair. Her eyes were bewitching and her figure voluptuous. She waved her hands and a terrifying flame was conjured out of thin air, burning the entire patch of worms.
Those Mutant Worms were the most afraid of flames and the moment they were burned, they shriveled up and died, emitting crackling sounds as they were burnt.
In the Turkic Empire where experts were numerous, Guxianli happened to be a top expert fighting with fire. She was a Spirit-based Evolver, a genius amongst genius. However, her combat strength was slightly inferior to both Dong-Er Molei and Abudidama.
After eradicating the swarm of Mutant Leeches, the Gold Wolf Riders continued their advance. However, their morale was low. After all, they had not yet engaged in any true battle or fights, but they had already lost over 400 people with 50 injured. It was about 1% of their strength and they naturally could not muster any fighting spirit.
Abudidama looked at them and opened his mouth to say, “This time, everyone had worked hard. Once we complete this mission, I will ask the Emperor to open the Red Inn and let everyone enjoy themselves for 10 days!”
“What? The Red Inn! For real?!”
“That’s great! This time, I’ll definitely do my best for the mission!”
Hearing the words of Abudidama, all the Gold Wolf Riders became excited.
The Red Inn was a sort of attraction place of the Turkic Empire, where many beauties of different races and descent were placed. They were all beauties in the world before the apocalypse and each of them had the aura of top beauties. This place was only reserved for those who had obtained huge merits for the army and could enjoy the women inside.
When the Gold Wolf Riders heard that they were allowed to head to the Red Inn, everyone suddenly seemed to be excited. It was a sacred place where only generals were allowed. Now they could go and have a taste themselves.
The soldiers of the Gold Wolf Riders became excited and continued through the forests, easily defeating a group of Mutant Monkeys before reaching their destination.
Surrounded by many trees, a huge barracks the size of hundreds of hectares appeared in front of them.
Abudidama’s eyes narrowed and he saw 2 rows of tanks sitting neatly within the camp and his eyes immediately lit up in joy, “Tanks! We’ve struck gold!”
Out here in the Central Plains, a single tank possessed the strength to wipe out a faction of over a thousand people. Abudidama could tell that there were about 8 tanks right outside and there were definitely even more supplies within.
“Charge! Everybody charge in!” Abudidama roared out as he waved his curved blade, charging into the camp.
A regiment would not exceed ten thousand people. With Abudidama’s current strength, even if there were ten thousand zombies inside, it wouldn’t be an issue to kill them.
The 2,000-over Gold Wolf Riders immediately charged into the huge barracks.
The moment the forces of Abudidama charged in, they realized there were no zombies anywhere. Within the huge barracks, there were thick vines growing and large, vibrant flowers grew on them.
Abudidama had sensed a strange atmosphere the moment he stepped into the barracks and he was overwhelmed by a strong sense of danger, causing him to shout involuntarily, “Retreat! Retreat!”
Under his orders, the 2,000-over Gold Wolf Riders began to retreat out.
Right at this moment, a long vine covered in fresh and pretty flowers shot out and the huge flower seemed to bloom with life opened, revealing a deep dark hole that had no end and rows of sharp teeth.
This huge flower clamped down on the head of a few Gold Wolf Riders like a specter. With a powerful thug and a ‘kacha’ sound, the heads of those Gold Wolf Riders were torn from their bodies, their corpses slumping to the ground.
The rest of the Gold Wolf Riders began to slash the flowers with vigor. When suddenly, a few vines shot out from the ground, piercing some of the Gold Wolf Riders, absorbing their innards greedily.
In an instant, over 400 Gold Wolf Riders had their heads torn off by those fearsome flowers, turning into fertilizer for the monstrous Mutant Plants.
“Fuck!!!” Abudidama’s blade slashed out in bright flashes, chopping the vines while sounds of metal hitting metal resounded. The Type 4 Treasure that was his weapon had no means of cutting through those vines.
“Guxianli! Burn these fucking plants!” Abdudidama tried to dodge the attacks of the vines, as he roared out.
Guxianli’s eyes flashed coldly, as she retreated and waved her hands about, a strong flame tornado firing out towards the vines.
When the burning hot flames landed on the flowers, the vines instantly burnt and sounds of crackling were heard.
The vines seemed to be able to tell that Guxianli possessed the means to threaten them. Hence, all the vines near the entrance let go off everyone else and made to claw towards Guxianli.
Countless vines shot towards her, intending to slap her to death. Witnessing this, Guxianli immediately felt despair. Her ability was strong, but her personal combat skills were not as strong, the vines would be able to slap her into meat paste.
“Guxianli!” Abudidama roared out and finally revealed his trump card. His face turned pale as 2 sharp fangs revealed themselves in his mouth. With a flash, he disappeared from his location and surpassed the speed of the Mutant Vines, instantly appearing beside Guxianli and grabbed her to disappear from the location.
His trump card was the Second Order Vampire Transformation. Turning into a vampire could push his speed to an insane limit, reaching 34 times that of a normal person. His transformation gave him a speed that was even few times faster than Yue Zhong.
The speed of those vines weren’t slow and Abudidama was forced to evade as much as he could. In the end, he was still struck heavily by 2 of them, causing him to soar in the air for over 20m, spitting blood.
Abudidama didn’t dare to stay a second longer within the area of the vines and quickly appeared outside of the barracks in a few breaths.
The remaining thousand over warriors of the Gold Wolf Riders also ran out pathetically. However, just as they managed to escape, countless bullets rained down upon them, ripping into their bodies.
2,000 Manchurian forces had teamed up with the Mongolians as they established some form of formation, hiding behind cover as they fired bullets wildly at the Gold Wolf Riders.
Ao Dou stood with the Manchurian forces and cold out coldly, “Abudidama, I’m very thankful that you guys have fulfilled your roles as cannon fodder so perfectly. You’ve actually helped us discover the secret of this base! Now that you’re useless, you may die!”
The Turkic Empire had always been vicious and ruthless, killing many Manchurians as well as their elites. That was why Ao Dou was full of hatred for Abudidama as well.
Abudidama saw the numerous Gold Wolf Riders under him in their own pools of blood and roared, “Ao Dou, you fucking animal! You actually are in cahoots with the Mongols! You’ll die a horrible death! Today’s matter, I’ll definitely not forget this! You’d all better remember this!”
Chapter 440: Trap!
Ao Dou laughed cruelly, “Hmph! This time next year will be your death anniversary! Abudidama, when you’re dead, I’ll help you ‘take care’ of Guxianli, I will get ALL my subordinates to help take good care of her!!”
Under that barrage of bullets, a large number of Gold Wolf Riders were riddled with bullets, and the remaining survivors quickly retreated back toward the barracks.
A number of snake-like vines wormed their way towards the soldiers, and the Mutant Man-eating Flowers bloomed and devoured the retreating soldiers.
“No!! No!!” One particular vine snaked around the legs of an unfortunate soldier and dragged him towards the flower to be consumed.
The Gold Wolf Rider turned to fire at them flowers and vines, firing madly. He managed to blast the petals and mouth of the flower, when suddenly, a huge sharp tendril shot out from within, piercing his throat.
After killing that Gold Wolf Rider, other tendrils shot out and pierced his body, as they started to absorb his bodily fluids.
“Go to hell! Go to hell!!” Another soldier that had rushed into the camp began to fire wildly at the Mutant Flowers, to no avail.
A Mutant Flower suddenly dropped down from the skies, enveloping the head of one Gold Wolf Rider, and with a ‘kacha’ sound, his head was instantly bitten off.
As the screams rang out, many of the Gold Wolf Riders were being killed off, their bodies devoured entirely.
“Die!! Die!!” One blade-wielding Saint Wolf Rider finally snapped, and he began to lash out, slicing out madly. Under his enraged attacks,nothing could not be destroyed.
After slicing through about 10 thick vines, over a hundred vines suddenly burst forth like cannons from all directions and pierced towards him.
The moment the vines attacked, they turned the Saint Wolf Rider into a sieve. Although he could easily slash through some of the vines, with an assault like this, it was impossible for him to evade.
Another Saint Wolf Rider utilized his Ice Manipulation skills and blasted out with his fists. A strong freezing energy enveloped one of the vines. At the next instant, with a loud ‘kacha’, the ice broke apart and the Mutant Man-eating Flower opened its huge mouth to swallow the head of the Saint Wolf Rider.
The entire barracks was like a scene out of hell, with numerous Man-eating Flowers gobbling up Gold Wolf Riders everywhere, and even the Saint Wolf Riders could not hold out any longer under the countless tendrils and vines.
Abudidama carried Guxianli and retreated all the way into the midst of the barracks, and felt his Stamina dropping like crazy. He could only roar out, “Charge out!! Charge out and have it out with them!! There’s only hope if we do that!! Saint Wolf Riders, on me!!”
The Gold Wolf Riders in the barracks all had bloodshot eyes, their expressions like cornered beasts, and with a resounding, unified roar, they all charged out.
They had been pushed to desperation, and remaining in the barracks would just spell death.
As they charged out, bullets met them.
The remaining 120 Saint Wolf Riders braved the rain of bullet, charging forth towards the Manchu and Mongol allied forces. Since they were already desperate, there was nothing to do except charge headlong.
These Saint Wolf Riders were all wearing Type 2 Mutant Beast hide and some other armor made out of high-level Mutant Beast hide. They could withstand ordinary bullets.
The dense barrage of bullets only managed to kill 20 of the Saint Wolf Riders, their bodies slumping to the ground.
The remaining Saint Wolf Riders managed to reach the allied forces and began to unleash a massacre on them. These were all enhanced above Level 20, and easily slaughtered 30 soldiers of the allied forces.
“Kill!” Ao Dou waved his hands and ordered coldly.
The White Armor Army’s leader, Ming Shu Wu, who wielded a large curved blade of over 2m led a hundred members of the White Armor Army and charged right for the Saint Wolf Riders.
Ming Shu Wu was an Agility-based Evolver and had over 18 times speed of a normal person. Each time he slashed out at his maximum speed, his strikes would exceed the sound barrier. As he met the Saint Wolf Riders, many of them were instantly sliced in half.
He was like a gust of wind, and each time he flashed past, there would be a spray of blood and a body that was split in half. It seemed that no one could withstand a single hit from him.
On the Mongol side, there was also a peak-level expert by the name of Hahn, who led his own forces to attack the Saint Wolf Riders.
The man called Hahn was a 2m-tall warrior who wielded a huge hammer of over 600 kg. In his hands, it was like a needle, and he waved it about easily, smashing his enemies into pulp.
Ao Dou and the general of the Mongol Army, Zheli Mu, just eyed Abudidama coldly. As long as he moved, they would join hands to attack him.
As a peak level Evolver, Abudidama was a threat and his strength was higher than most of the fighters on the field. The moment he escaped, the Manchuria and Mongol Empires would have another strong enemy to deal with. Ao Dou and Zheli Mu would definitely not let him get away.
Although they didn’t yet move, their fixed gaze was like a strong pressure on Abudidama. He was extremely clear that these 2 were just waiting for a good opportunity, to make him stay, once and for all.
Zheli Mu eyed Abudidama and called out, “Abudidama! I actually do admire you and your talents. If you surrender to me right now and swear loyalty to our Mongol Empire, I can let you and Guxianli off. Otherwise, today will be the day you die. You guys are still young, it would be such a waste to die here!! There’re countless things in this world still meant to be enjoyed!”
Beside Ao Dou, a crafty-looking man by the name of Niu Dong laughed out lewdly, “That’s right! Abudidama, even if you don’t care about yourself, you should think of Guxianli in your arms right? If you were to die here, and she lands up in our hands, all our brothers here will really ‘take care’ of her, you know? I wonder how long she will be able to last?”
Niu Dong was a lustful and low man, his mouth extremely sharp and poisonous. He was also utilized by Ao Dou to either convince enemies, or to curse at them.
Abudidama could not help but tremble slightly. If it was just him alone, he would definitely not think of surrendering. With his agility and power, even if he couldn’t fight them, he could definitely outrun them. However, with Guxianli in his arms, it was harder.
Ao Dou and Zheli Mu were both experts on par with Abudidama. Other than them, there was the White Armor Army, and the Qie Xue Army to consider. If he was surrounded, it would be impossible for him to break out.
Guxianli raised her head to look at Abudidama, and pleaded, “Dama!! I don’t want to die!! Let’s live on together.”
Some people would choose to end their lives themselves at the face of death, yet more would want to live. Even if it was at the cost of their pride and dignity, they would still want to live.
Guxianli’s words broke Abudidama’s final line of his psychological barrier. He really loved this woman, whose figure, behaviour and sultriness in bed thoroughly mesmerized him.
He gritted his teeth and made the decision, “Fine!! Ao Dou, Zheli Mu! I can take my men to surrender. However, you have to promise the safety of my troops and immediately cease all attacks!”
“Stop all attacks!”
With a single command, the allied forces stopped attacking the Gold Wolf Riders.
The remaining 300 Gold Wolf Riders panted, looking at their fellow comrades who laid dead all around them. Many of them weren’t willing to die.
One Saint Wolf Rider charged at Abudidama with a savage look, “Abudidama!! How could you betray us?! You fucking traitor!! I’ll kill you!!”
“We’ll kill you!!”
“Kill this traitor dog!!”
There were many loyal Turks amongst the Gold Wolf Riders, and they were of one mind for the revival of the Turk Empire. Witnessing Abudidama’s betrayal, they could not help but launch their attacks.
“Seeking death!” Abudidama carried Guxianli and his eyes flashed coldly. In a flash, he charged into the midst of the Saint Wolf Riders, slashing at the loyal Saint Wolf Riders and killing them.
After killing dozens of experts instantly, Abudidama kneeled in front of Zheli Mu on a single knee and proclaimed, “Abudidama is willing to serve the Mongol Empire!”
The enmity between the Gold Wolf Riders and Manchuria was extremely deep, furthermore, since the largest faction was the Mongol Empire out here in the Central Plains, it was natural that Abudidama chose to serve the Mongol Empire compared to Manchuria.
“Good! Good!! Good!!” Zheli Mu’s face had a smile, before it suddenly twisted into a savage grin, and he activated his own killing move, Second Order Explosive Fist. His right fist suddenly swung towards Abudidama’s head with a terrifying speed, as well as raging flames.
Since Abudidama was a peak Evolver, the moment Zheli Mu moved, he had already felt a premonition, and he twisted to evade the blow.
Unfortunately, Abudidama had kneeled on one knee, and although his speed was almost unparalleled, it was still slightly slow. The blow from Zheli Mu managed to strike his right shoulder. An explosive strength burst out, blasting the Abudidama’s shoulder together with the Type 3 Mutant Beast hide into pieces.
The flames burned his face, resulting in an ugly charred look. He could not open his eyes as well.
He gritted his teeth and bore with the pain, retreating backwards like a squid. He knew it was a critical moment and he might die if he wasn’t careful.
Abudidama retreated with his eyes squinted, and a sharp blade whistled through the air, threatening to split him at the waist.
Facing that impending blow, Abudidama was somehow still able to twist his body and dodge that powerful killing move.
“You can die without regrets!” Following an icy tone, Ao Dou immediately stabbed down with a silver curved blade, piercing Abudidama’s heart. With another bright flash, his large blade then split his body in two.
“Kill them all!!” After taking care of Abudidama, Ao Dou ordered coldly.
The allied forces then raised their guns immediately and fired wildly at the Gold Wolf Riders, who were caught off guard and died.
In an instant, the powerful Que Xie Troops and White Armor Army charged at the Gold Wolf Riders, targeting the stronger Saint Wolf Riders.
Ao Dou’s gaze was cold as he walked towards Guxianli.
Guxianli kneeled on the ground, her face full of fear as she pleaded, “Don’t kill me! Don’t kill me!! I’m willing to do anything for you! You can get me to do anything. Please, don’t kill me!”
Ao Dou looked at her with contempt, “For such a woman, Abudidama actually died, what a fool.”
Zheli Mu laughed, “He’s truly stupid. With his standing, he could get any women he wanted, he actually lost his life for this bitch. What a waste. If it wasn’t for his stupidity, it would have been harder to kill him. Although she’s a stupid bitch, she actually did managed to help us with this, even though it was unintentional. Let’s spare her. She still has some use!”
Ao Dou looked at her and said, “Fine! Guxianli! We won’t kill you. Get up!”
Guxianli stood up, twisting her snake-like waist as she smiled seductively at Ao Dou, “Yes! Sir Ao Dou!!”
She had relied on her attractive charms to thoroughly capture Abudidama’s heart, keeping him deep in her pockets.
The allied forces thus wiped out the rest of the Gold Wolf Riders with ease, and there were corpses everywhere, with blood and organs splattered all around. A number of vines shot out from the barracks, piercing the corpses, sucking them dry.
