God and Devil World - Chapter 491-500
Chapter 491: Su Xing He joins! Ji Qing Wu controlled the Biological Armor to step down, her leg leaping onto the head of the Type 3 Mutant Black Gorilla. She then controlled the huge sword in her hand to pierce down into its head.
The mighty Sword Radiance tore a hole into the skull of the Type 3 Mutant Black Gorilla, slicing its brain into two.
With a flicker, Ji Qing Wu disappeared from on top of the Type 3 Mutant Black Gorilla.
The massive Mutant Beast that was the size of a fortress slumped down lifelessly.
The other Type 3 Ferocious Ape suddenly appeared in front of Yue Zhong, swinging its mighty fist at him.
The speed of the Type 3 Ferocious Ape was too fast, Yue Zhong had no way of dodging.
His eyes flashed, and a thick Dark Dou Qi enveloped his entire body. In a blink, he used his Shadow Steps, reaching speeds exceeding the sound barrier. He twisted and leaped backward, at the same time, pulling out his Flame Blade to slash the fist of the Type 3 Ferocious Ape.
The sharp Flame Blade managed to slice the fist of the Type 3 Ferocious Ape, leaving a deep gash.
Yue Zhong himself was also sent flying back from the recoil, the Flame Blade also flying out of his grasp.
As he flew back, the Devil Flames in his hand congealed into the shape of a spear, and he flung it with all his might. The Devil Flame Spear shot towards the head of the Type 3 Ferocious Ape, exploding upon impact and enveloping its head, frying its brain into cinders.
With its death, the total number of Type 3 Mutant Beasts dwindled down to 3, the Mutant Giant Turtle, the Black-scaled Ferocious Boar, and the Type 3 Red Leopard.
The strange Beast atop the Type 3 Red Leopard looked towards Yue Zhong coldly and frowned.
Hong! Hong! Hong!
The intense volley of cannon fire continued without stopping, blasting countless Mutant Beasts into pieces. At the same time, due to the death of the Type 3 Gold-scaled Rat King, the sea of Mutant Rats were broken apart, as the critters began to flee in different directions.
The remaining Mutant Beasts were also baptized by the laser beams that met them right after the blanketing artillery fire.
Upon seeing all these, the strange Beast atop the Type 3 Red Leopard let out a shrill howl.
When they heard the howl, the rest of the Mutant Beasts quickly retreated like a flood. The strange Beast eyed Yue Zhong deeply, before turning around and disappeared into the night.
“Seems like yet another terrifying opponent has appeared!” Yue Zhong watched the retreating Mutant Beasts and his brows furrowed.
This time, in order to fight back the Mutant Horde, Yue Zhong had brought along a large amount of ammunition. Had they continued to surge forwards, he could easily wipe them out.
Since he held the upper hand, as long as they held out till daytime, he could even call for the reinforcements of the assault helicopters to rain hell upon the Mutant Beasts.
Now that the Mutant Beasts chose to retreat, he was full of trepidation. In fact, the Mutant Beasts were stronger than zombies, if they also had a commander with a human-like intelligence, it would be a terrifying thing.
The ordinary soldiers did not consider so much, the moment they saw the retreat of the Mutant Beasts, all of them erupted in cheers, and they knew they had fended off their enemies successfully once again.
Bai Xiao Sheng appeared by Yue Zhong’s side, wrapped in gauze, as he asked, “Leader, do we continue towards the granary?”
Yue Zhong’s eyes turned cold as he replied, “No! We will eradicate the Greater China Alliance now. They dare to work together with the Kingdom of God, what imbeciles! If we let them live, they will pose a problem to us.”
This time, due to their collusion, Yue Zhong’s troops had suffered greatly. Hu-er Ran’s 3rd Brigade had lost over 600 men.
After all, the 3rd Brigade only had 3,000 men at first, they were all made up of old veterans that had followed Hu-er Ran through countless battles.
600 elites who had abundant experience were killed off in this battle, and this was a huge blow to Hu-er Ran’s forces. Other than the 3rd Brigade, Yue Zhong also lost another 20 Evolvers to the 2 Apostles. If it wasn’t for capturing these huge elite force of the KoG, Yue Zhong could have been considered to have suffered a great loss as well.
The most important point was that Zhang Jian Xing was the core of the Alliance’s military. With his death, the Alliance only had 4,000 soldiers left. They were basically a motley bunch without a capable leader.
After resting an entire day, Yue Zhong sent out his troops to transport the numerous Mutant Beasts corpses behind and sent the injured soldiers back. As to the corpses of his enemies, they were fed to the Mother Tree, becoming its nourishment. Yue Zhong would only respect his own soldiers, while he had no mercy nor pity for his enemies.
At the same time, he deployed troops towards the base of the Alliance. He was still of the idea of co-existing with the Alliance. However, after everything, the Alliance was basically helpless against him. He also did not want to leave this cancer to fester.
Su Xing He saw that Yue Zhong’s army had dropped all notions of advancing towards the granary, and his heart sank, “Is he finally going to act against the Alliance? There’s no one who can stop him now.”
Su Xing He was one of the upper echelons of the Alliance and knew the capabilities of the soldiers. Having lost their general, there was no one else who could lead them. Most of the commanders inside had obtained their posts through connections, and while they could somewhat deal with zombies in towns, fighting Yue Zhong’s troops was a different thing altogether.
After pondering for a long while, his eyes shone with a resolute gleam, “That’s right. This is also a chance. Once he swallows the Alliance, there will be no one who can stop his expansion in the North. It might not be just a dream for him to unite the entire country anymore. If I join him now, I might be part of the founding team.”
With Su Xing He’s strength, it wasn’t difficult to gather a few hundred people and become his own local warlord. However, he wasn’t happy with just doing something on such a small scale. He knew that even if he did so, and could possibly enjoy himself in some remote corner, once Yue Zhong succeeded in conquering the country, he would not allow Su Xing He’s faction to exist anymore. Even if he were a peak-level Evolver, facing all the peak-level Evolvers of the country, he wasn’t much.
Having learned something in life, Su Xing He had been a director before the apocalypse as well. He was clear on the splendor and allure of power and authority. He wanted to become an official, and thus, he decided to join Yue Zhong.
Su Xing He was led by a soldier to Yue Zhong, before respectfully greeting him, “Leader Yue Zhong, I’m Su Xing He, I hope to be of assistance to Leader.”
Yue Zhong eyed the man in front of him, his eyes flashing, “You’re that Su Xing He? One of the 5 heads of the Greater China Alliance?”
Yue Zhong had not expected that one of the 5 leaders would take the initiative to submit to him.
“Yes!” Su Xing He chuckled, before he revealed his cards, “I am able to hand the entire Alliance to you.”
“While the leader to the rest is Ximen Tian Xiong, the true pillar is Zhang Jian Xing. Because of his death, while the Alliance might still exist, it would never be a match for you. However, there’re a number of experts within. If you were to still forcefully swallow the Alliance, you might suffer some casualties as well.”
“Furthermore, those who will suffer will be the ordinary citizens. If you were to attack the Alliance, most of the survivors would suffer. In this current world, humans are the most precious resource. I know Leader you wouldn’t want to see too many deaths as well. As long as you pass the responsibility of convincing the Alliance to me, I will make sure to deliver.” Su Xing He spoke, a hint of fervor in his eyes.
Yue Zhong also agreed that Su Xing He had a point, and he chuckled, “Fine! What would you want?”
Su Xing He’s eyes were practically ablaze by now, “I know Leader your current system is martial law. I hope to be able to become a Lieutenant Colonel and help to lead troops in your stead. Other than that, I would like to recommend Chan Wei Hua to be a major as well. Both of us are peak Evolvers, and we can definitely be swords for you.”
Yue Zhong saw the fiery ambition in Su Xing He’s gaze and laughed slightly, “Alright! I’ll promise you. As long as you can hand the Alliance to me, I will grant your wish.”
The positions of a Lieutenant Colonel and a Major in exchange for over a dozen thousands of survivors as well as 2 peak level Evolvers was too good for Yue Zhong to pass up on.
Su Xing He replied, “Thank you, Leader! I hope that as I conduct the operation, you will assign me troops to assist in the plan. Only with sufficient pressure, I will be able to ensure the Alliance listens.”
Yue Zhong’s troops continued to push towards the Alliance, causing them to fall into panic. Some people who were smarter knew that the death of their general Zhang Jian Xing meant that the Alliance was helpless against Yue Zhong.
“Yue Zhong is reaching, what do we do?” Within a secret base, Chan Wei Hua summoned his people and asked. Chapter 492: Swallowing the Alliance! One small-time leader looked at Chan Wei Hua and said, “Brother, Yue Zhong’s army is too fearsome. We’re not his match. Most of the Alliance’s fighting force had been annihilated, even Zhang Jian Xing had died. There’s no hope in staying here, let’s flee! With our strength, even if we leave here, we can find a corner to live it out well!”
“That’s right! Brother, Yue Zhong is truly too powerful, we’re not his match! Let’s flee!”
“Yea, Brother. If you’re worried about the rations, we can go and steal some before leaving.”
One by one, the various ringleaders spoke up, none of them were willing to stay behind to fight it out with Yue Zhong.
Chan Wei Hua listened to them and his eyes lit up. He knew that it was suicide intending to fight against Yue Zhong. However, he had over 40 beauties under his wing. As for the rest of them, some had at the very least one or two, while the most could have a dozen. If they were to all flee, just their women would reach a few hundred.
Such a huge troop would not be able to escape the grasp of Yue Zhong’s army. Chan Wei Hua knew that it was difficult for him to bring his troops to flee. The moment he attacked, other than a few experts, the rest would be forced to stay. His women would not be free as well.
“Why should you run?”
Right at this time, a voice traveled over, and the moment it sounded, everyone in the room became wary, turning to the direction.
Su Xing He stepped into the room and revealed a smile.
Chan Wei Hua’s eyes narrowed to a slit, as his entire body became tense. He was like a leopard ready to pounce as he stared at Su Xing He in wariness, “Su Xing He, I want to leave, are you intending to stop me?”
Su Xing He continued to smile, “No! If you want to leave, by all means. However, I have got a suggestion. Who knows, after my words, you might not want to leave anymore.”
Chan Wei Hua saw that Su Xing He had no intentions of stopping him and heaved a sigh of relief. Su Xing He was also a peak level Evolver, and if both parties were to engage in a fight, they would likely draw. He had no intentions of fighting it out with Su Xing He.
Chan Wei Hua’s eyes flashed as he spoke, “Su Xing He, Yue Zhong’s reach is extensive. Even Zhang Jian Xing and the Kingdom of God couldn’t do anything to him after teaming up. Such a fearsome person is not someone we can handle. No matter what you say, I will not stay. It’s practically suicide. DO you want to leave with me? With our strength, we can carve something out for ourselves.”
Su Xing He was also an Evolver, and if a faction had 2 such powerhouses as their core, they could deal with plenty of situations. As long as it wasn’t a Mutant Beast wave or a zombie horde, they could handle themselves.
Su Xing He laughed lightly, “Why should we leave? Can’t we just join Yue Zhong?”
“Join him?” Chan Wei Hua immediately sunk into thoughts. He was worried about Yue Zhong hunting him that he never thought about submitting to him.
“Wei Hua, if you want to flee now, you’re free to do so. Based on your strength, it’s possible to go to a small village and be the local tyrant. However, did you stop to think, Yue Zhong’s influence will only continue to grow. Once he had conquered everywhere, you will need to recede your territory even further, otherwise, he will send troops to wipe you out. Till when will you continue to live like that?”
“Plus, you can only do so much alone. There’s still the issue about the zombie horde, the Mutant Beasts, rations, etc. Without a proper base, you can only continue to flee, and nothing else but flee. In the end, other than you, there will be a few dozen brothers. Those without enough strength will perish. Is such a lifestyle what you guys want?”
“Yue Zhong has already conquered the Central Plains and over 5 or 6 major cities. He has established the running of factories and farming, as well as a currency system and a working government. He is the only warlord with the most potential of uniting the entire country. Since he’s still in the initial stages, if we were to join him now, after contributing, we might become founding fathers. Our future generations will stand to bask in our glory and achievements. If you don’t want to choose this path and rather pursue a dog-like life, by all means. You can continue to cower in fear and live in the uncertainty of being swallowed by some other power, or killed by a wave of Mutant Beasts.” Su Xing He rattled on and on with a strong logical reasoning.
Hearing his words, Chan Wei Hua’s expression seemed to perk up. He looked towards his subordinates and noticed that they were all swayed by his argument already.
After all, everyone wanted to live a better life. No one liked to live like strays, living day to day.
Chan Wei Hua wasn’t an idiot, he thought for a while and asked, “Su Xing He, you’ve already joined him, right?”
Su Xing He chuckled, “That’s right! I am a Lieutenant Colonel within his army now.”
Chan Wei Hua’s subordinates looked at him with envy. Having become a Lt. Col. under Yue Zhong, his status was different.
Chan Wei Hua frowned and asked, “Then what if I join Yue Zhong?”
Su Xing He replied, “If you join him, you get to keep all your private possessions. As long as you have the ability to feed your 40 women, you can continue doing so. At the same time, you will be a major under Yue Zhong, and in charge of an infantry battalion.”
Chan Wei Hua’s frown deepened, “A Major rank? Isn’t it too low?”
Although he was secretly satisfied with the arrangements, he wanted to try his luck in haggling. Mainly because he was unhappy with being under Su Xing He. However, he was extremely clear that Su Xing He had taken the initiative to submit first, that was why he got the longer end of the stick.
Su Xing He revealed a cruel smile, “If you want to gain a better position, you’ll need to prove yourself. If you can join me and present the entire Alliance to Yue Zhong, you’ll naturally gain a better position.
Chan Wei Hua swiftly made his decision, “Ok! Su Xing He, I’ll work with you in bringing the Alliance to Yue Zhong!”
Within a meeting hall of the Alliance’s headquarters, Ximen Tian Xiong and the rest of the upper echelons had gathered for a meeting, discussing how to deal with Yue Zhong.
Inside the hall, many of the officials were giving their own opinions, and everyone’s faces were downcast. No one felt that they could withstand Yue Zhong’s assault.
Ximen Tian Xiong listened to their discussion, his heart heavy as he asked, “What’s going on? How come Chan Wei Hua isn’t here yet?”
“I’m here! Sorry for being late!” Following a bright laughter, Chan Wei Hua and Su Xing He walked into the hall together.
Ximen Tian Xiong watched them enter together and a premonition arose in his heart. His brows furrowed.
Chan Wei Hua had a carefree look as he looked at everyone, “Don’t panic, I’ve come with the method of dealing with Yue Zhong.”
Ximen Tian Xiong was shocked and asked in curiosity, “What is it?”
The rest of the people also turned their gazes to Chan Wei Hua.
“The method is, to let Ximen Tian Xiong die!” Chan Wei Hua laughed indifferently, and a coin shot out like a cannon, piercing Ximen Tian Xiong in the head.
There was a look of shock on Ximen Tian Xiong’s face as his body slumped to the ground lifelessly.
Su Xing He instantly exploded out with 10 pieces of steel that pierced the 6 guards beside Ximen Tian Xiong. They were caught unprepared, and although they weren’t weak Evolvers, they were still assassinated by Su Xing He.
At the same time, there was gunfire from outside, as Su Xing He and Chan Wei Hua’s forces launched a swift assault on the soldiers of Ximen Tian Xiong. Under that sudden attack, Ximen Tian Xiong’s forces were annihilated.
The rest of the upper echelons watched the proceedings in horror and shock, not knowing what to do. Under the heavy suppression of Chan Wei Hua and Su Xing He, they didn’t dare to move.
Chan Wei Hua turned to survey everyone present and chuckled, “Don’t worry, those who want to live better listen up! Su Xing He and I have submitted to Yue Zhong. We hope that everyone can cooperate, otherwise, don’t blame us for being merciless.”
Everyone saw that Ximen Tian Xiong had already died, and they had no intentions of rebelling, looking on quietly as Chan Wei Hua and Su Xing He cleared the close buddies of Ximen Tian Xiong.
After eradicating all potential trouble, Su Xing He sent someone to handle the Alliance while sending someone else to invite Yue Zhong’s army in.
Chan Wei Hua immediately saluted Yue Zhong in respect when he saw him, “Chan Wei Hua greets Leader Yue Zhong, and is willing to serve!”
Yue Zhong chuckled, “Well done! Chan Wei Hua, from now on, you’re promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel!”
Chan Wei Hua was delighted, and responded enthusiastically, “Thank you, Leader!!”
Yue Zhong stared at him and said, “Chan Wei Hua, since you’re already my subordinate, you have to follow my rules. My army is a proper one, not one that anyhow does things. Military men have to abide by the military laws, is that clear?”
Chan Wei Hua’s heart turned cold, “Yes!”
Su Xing He came up to Yue Zhong and reported, “Leader, I have someone here, whom I think you’ll be interested to meet.” Chapter 493: Negotiations! Yue Zhong assessed the bespectacled and civil-looking man, “Who are you?”
The middle-aged man replied, “I’m called Cheng Zi Ming, I used to work at the 2nd Satellite Base near the capital before the apocalypse.”
“Satellite base?” Yue Zhong was jolted when he heard that, and he asked hurriedly, “Do you remember the location of the base?”
Cheng Zi Ming was clear that this was a moment of potential rewards, and he replied, “I do. I can lead you there.”
Yue Zhong’s face broke out into a smile, “Good! Cheng Zi Ming, as long as I can obtain that base, I will reward you.”
Satellites were useful in modern warfare. With enough of them, the entire earth could be displayed. Since most satellites were focused on major cities, the movements of large armies could not escape detection.
Any faction that gained control over satellites would gain a huge advantage. Other than, satellites enabled telecommunication across the globe. It was possible to locate positions and do many other things.
The Kingdom of God had such a strong expansion at the start throughout the globe because of their control over the satellites early on. With them, they could pass messages, and ensure communication as well as an understanding of the various situations. Without them, in a world where many types of equipment had failed, the Kingdom of God could not have planned and executed their plans properly.
Cheng Zi Ming’s face lit up in joy, “Thank you, Leader!”
Yue Zhong looked at Su Xing He and praised, “Well done, Commander Su Xing He.”
Regardless of character or efficiency, Su Xing He was truly outstanding. He understood what Yue Zhong needed and attended to it extremely well. If there were any cons, it would be that he was unlike Li Guang and Bai Xiao Sheng in their loyalty towards him.
If Yue Zhong’s faction were to deteriorate, and another powerful faction appeared, Su Xing He would likely sell him out and join the other faction, just like how he betrayed the Alliance so easily.
Su Xing He grinned humbly, “Thank you for your praise, Leader!”
Su Xing He had already made his decision to help Yue Zhong in establishing his rule, and he would naturally bring forth all he had to offer.
Yue Zhong nodded and headed out.
After gaining the intelligence about the satellite base, he wasn’t in a hurry to rush out. Instead, he began to reorganize the Alliance troops. In addition to his captives, there were a total of 10,000 able-bodied men now.
From them, he pulled out 3,000 to form the 5th Brigade, with the command falling to Yu Wen Ying. Su Xing He and Chan Wei Hua were drafted into the 5th Brigade as well.
It was a large brigade, and one of the companies was made up of ex-Adjudicators. Just that troop alone was enough to overwhelm the other companies of Su Xing He and Chan Wei Hua. At the same time, Yue Zhong assigned a few loyal commanders to them, ensuring that it would be hard for either of the 2 to sway the soldiers in the companies.
As he was reorganizing the army, Yue Zhong sent the armored division of the 1st Regiment to head to the granary. Food was more precious than gold in the apocalypse. Once he obtained the granary, he would not have to worry about rations in the short run.
The armored division of the 1st Regiment had a smooth journey, only coming across a few Mutant Beasts along the way, and conquered the granary easily. However, half of the rations inside had already been destroyed by the Mutant Beast horde, with many broken bags and piles of excrement lying everywhere. The stench was truly overbearing.
Although most of the granary had been damaged, 10% of it was salvageable.
Yue Zhong thus arranged for the undamaged rations to be transported back to Zhang Kou City, Hohhot City, and Bao Xi City separately.
The huge zombie horde and Mutant Beast wave that had retreated was still a huge threat looming over Yue Zhong’s mind. He did not want to leave the rations in a single place.
While that was going on, Yue Zhong sent the newly established 5th Brigade together with the 4th Brigade to clear zombies, slowly expanding his reach towards the capital.
On the other side, the defeat of the Kingdom of God’s soldiers reached their headquarters, causing a huge wave among the elders of the KoG.
“Erek that fool, he failed!”
“800 of our kids had actually ended up in that Yue Zhong’s hands because of that idiot Erek! What do we do now?”
“Punish that Erek!”
“Correct, punish him! He has to be put to death!”
The council erupted in voices of dissent.
Those 800 Adjudicators and Judges were all Aryans and part of the KoG’s fighting force. They were also necessary for the reproduction of their race. With such a force, they could easily conquer a city over at Africa. They could not give up such a force.
As for Yu Wen Ying and the other foreign races, even if they were to be eradicated, the Elder Council would not make a big fuss. After all, it was easy to raise up another unit of these soldiers from their other bases. However, the troops that Erek had led were pure Aryans and precious people.
After all, that 800 soldiers had clashed against the 3,000-strong 3rd Brigade, and they only lost 300 people but managed to kill 600 soldiers of the 3rd Brigade. Furthermore, of the 300 casualties, some had been killed by the Mutant Beasts and the elite Evolvers of Yue Zhong’s soldiers. The actual number that fell at the hands of the 3rd Brigade was only about 100.
Without any external assistance, the Aryan unit could easily crush the 3,000-strong 3rd Brigade. That was how strong they were.
The Great Elder Jonas announced with difficulty, “Erek shall be put to death!”
Hearing his words, the rest of the Elders regained their calm.
One Elder asked, “According to Wilson, there’s still about 500 of our men in Yue Zhong. What do we do about them?”
“We have to save them!”
“How do we do so? They’re already in his hands, if we continue to send people over, it will be just sending them to their deaths.”
“India! We need to transfer some soldiers from India to deal with Yue Zhong. India can be considered to be our colony. We can deploy about 100,000 soldiers from there. It should be enough to eradicate Yue Zhong.”
“100,000 foreign soldiers, this is the maximum that we can activate from India. Once we deploy them, our strength in India will suffer greatly. If we were to lose, India will also be lost. I am against this idea.”
“I’m also against the idea. If we were to deploy troops from India, then we need to transfer some resources over. Just transporting them will take up too much logistics. By then, when we start the assault against Yue Zhong, we will have to devote resources into the battle, and our plan to recover the capital in the city here will be delayed. This is not to our benefit.”
“Negotiations! I feel that we should negotiate with him. Since cannons and weapons cannot help us achieve what we want, let’s use negotiations!”
“That’s right! A powerful, united China may not be to our benefit, but the number of zombies in China is about 1.5 billion. It is a number that Yue Zhong would need at least 10 years to deal with. Our main enemies are the zombies now, not other humans. Although it will be a pity to abandon China, for now, we definitely need to focus our efforts on reclaiming the major cities within our own country!”
The elders were all practical, the moment there didn’t seem to be a solution to Yue Zhong, they chose to negotiate.
Jonas also came to a decision after some consideration, “Let Anreit go and negotiate with Yue Zhong to recover our children!’
The orders of the Kingdom of God soon traveled to China, and the branch there responded quickly, sending the envoy to Yue Zhong.
Anreit came up to Yue Zhong and saluted, “How are you, Leader Yue Zhong!”
Yue Zhong saw that it was Anreit and chuckled, “Anreit, it’s you? Speak, what’s your objective?”
Yue Zhong had negotiated with Anreit once in Vietnam before, and he had even stabbed them in the back viciously.
Anreit knew Yue Zhong’s character and immediately got to the point, “Leader Yue Zhong, I hope to buy back the 500 Adjudicators and Judges from your hands. We’re willing to use 3,000 assault rifles and 50,000 rounds of ammunition to exchange for them.”
Yue Zhong immediately responded “I want 2 manufacturing lines of the Thunder Fighters, 2 multi-functional battle helmet production lines, as well as 10,000 tonnes of fuel. If you can meet my requirements, I will release them immediately.”
The Thunder Fighters and multi-functional battle helmets were great items. Especially the helmets, they provided adequate protection against rifles, and had night vision, navigation, analysis, battlefield scanning and other capabilities.
The Kingdom of God could conduct operations in the night and achieve outstanding results because of the helmets.
Anreit was taken aback and he laughed bitterly, “Leader Yue Zhong. The Thunder Fighters are our newest research, and we only have 5 production lines. It is impossible to give them to you. The helmets can only be produced over in Europe as well. Even if we want to give them to you, we can’t port it over.” Chapter 494: Satellite Base! Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed, “Alright! Get all those factions in China under your Kingdom of God to submit to me, and hand over their weapons and resources, I’ll release your men.”
The Kingdom of God had many factions within China and were pretty active in China. Of course, even if they were to all work together, they weren’t a match for Yue Zhong. However, if they were to react, they still posed a problem. Should Yue Zhong successfully swallow them up, he could truly become the conqueror of China.
Anreit chuckled bitterly again, “I’m sorry, I can’t agree to that condition.”
The power that the Kingdom of God had in China wasn’t small, they had altogether about 27,000 soldiers. Anreit was naturally unwilling to hand them over to Yue Zhong. While most of them were ordinary soldiers, not having undergone any job changes, but they had already undergone tough military training and their combat power was still a notch above most normal soldiers. This was a sizeable force and the Kingdom of God would not give it away so simply.
Yue Zhong’s expression turned extremely cold, “Then what the fuck are you here for?”
Anreit turned silent, “I can hand over all the factories from the Outer Mongolia in exchange for those 500 soldiers.”
Yue Zhong stared at him, “Military factories?”
“That’s right! Outer Mongolia has about 20 ammunition production lines and 15 heavy artillery production lines. They could produce enough for most armored vehicles.”
Yue Zhong took the opportunity to propose a counter offer, “Add on another 5,000 rifles, 1,000,000 bullets. I know you can afford that. As for the production lines, you guys will handle the transport. Don’t bargain any further.”
Anreit grit his teeth and replied, “Fine!”
The troops of the Outer Mongolia had already been defeated by Yue Zhong. Although the KoG still controlled much of the production lines there, they couldn’t suppress the local factions for much longer. They had to clear out sooner or later and since that was the case, it was better to hand the lines over to Yue Zhong than to those local militants.
After completing his task, Anreit felt much at ease, “Leader Yue Zhong, the Kingdom of God is extremely interested in the laser gun technology in your hands. They are willing to exchange the production techniques for the Thunder Fighters and Multipurpose Combat Helmet for that technology. This will be beneficial to both our countries, we hope that you can agree.”
Yue Zhong immediately refused, “No.” Yue Zhong and the Kingdom of God were on different levels of technology capabilities. Even if he were to gain the secrets of the Thunder Fighter and Multipurpose Combat Helmet, if he wanted to produce them, it was impossible within the next 2 years. After all, manufacturing an aircraft required many materials and time. Without the necessary capabilities, even if he had the blueprints, it was useless.
After the deal was confirmed, both sides started to carry out their ends of the deal.
A large number of production lines were delivered by the Kingdom of God into Yue Zhong’s hands.
Yue Zhong received them, together with 5,000 assault rifles, and a million rounds, before releasing the 500 Aryan soldiers back to the Kingdom of God.
After an entire month, Yue Zhong finally managed to empty out the granary storage, and his troops managed to eliminate about 800,000 zombies.
As they neared the capital, the number of zombies were increasing as well. An ordinary county might have a few hundred thousand of them and each time they launched an assault on a county, they would have to expend plenty of ammunition. However, Yue Zhong was not in shortage of production lines now, and in addition to the recently-joined Alliance members, everyday, there was plenty of ammunition produced to support the constant war against the zombies.
With the addition of the Outer Mongolia’s production line, Yue Zhong’s production speed had increased by a third. Everyday, there was ammunition produced and sent to the frontlines, allowing Yue Zhong’s army to be constantly fighting, with more to spare and save.
Qin Yang County was extremely close to the capital and currently, there was a vehicle fleet on its way there. The satellite base was in a location just right outside of Qin Yang County.
Yue Zhong was seated in a Hummer that had been modified, as he looked out the window serenely. He had come on this trip personally in order to obtain this satellite base.
In his mind, the importance of this satellite base was equal, if not higher than, to the missile base. What he had gained within the missile base was not to be used lightly, whereas the potential of the satellite base was going to be extremely useful. All his communications and reconnaissance would level up.
“It’s right here!!” Cheng Zi Ming brought Yue Zhong towards a barren mountain that seemed inconspicuous. There was a huge metal door right at the entrance of the mountain.
He pointed to the door and told Yue Zhong, “The base is right below there.”
He continued to explain, “In fact, there is a city below, which is extremely huge. When I was here working, the number of personnel was about 3,000. The base is well equipped with all sorts of functions. I think that there might be at least 2,000 zombies within.”
Yue Zhong looked at the door and said, “Open the door! Qing Wu!”
Ji Qing Wu put on her Blue Biological Armor and pulled out that large sword, before slashing a few times at the door. A hole was soon carved out.
One Evolver muttered a spell under his breath and stretched out his hands. There was a flash of light, and 8 hunting dogs appeared. He pointed to the door, and the 8 hunting dogs darted into the base.
“Not a problem!” After an hour, the 8 hunting dogs came out and the Evolver looked at them before nodding at Yue Zhong.
Having ensured that there was no danger within, Yue Zhong brought his troops into the tunnel.
Inside the tunnel, there was no light, and Yue Zhong took the lead cautiously.
Behind Yue Zhong, a number of flashlights were switched on.
The party then soon made their way into the city.
They discovered that within the underground city, there were all sorts of structures, just that there was no light, and the entire place looked like an underground tomb.
Yue Zhong surveyed the place and felt wary. He had also entered an underground city back at Ulan Mountain Range and had come across that strange parasitic creature.
He turned to speak to Ji Qing Wu, “Qing Wu, go get some men to guard the entrance, do not let anything escape out. I’ll go take a look.”
Ji Qing Wu’s eyes flashed with worry, “Be careful!”
“Don’t worry!” Yue Zhong smiled at her, before carrying Yin Shuang on his back and made his way further into the city.
Yin Shuang had the combat strength of an Apostle, and Yue Zhong had the capabilities to overwhelm an Apostle himself. As long as they were careful and did not meet any Type 5 Mutant Beasts, it was hard for them to fall.
Barren and silence, that was the description for the underground city.
Yue Zhong walked along and could make out several broken windows. There were patches of blood on the ground, and it was obvious that there had been many deaths at the jaws of the zombies during the start of the apocalypse.
The defense was tight in this underground city, but at the same time, it had acted as a huge cage, trapping the people within, preventing them from escaping.
He did not come across any danger but he couldn’t help feeling a sense of caution. This was because he had not come across something that he should have already, the zombies. He would rather face tens of thousands of zombies than any of those Mutant Beasts that had intelligence.
Just after Yue Zhong passed by a window, suddenly, dozens of S2s leaped out and charged at Yue Zhong.
While he still felt wary, he didn’t panic, and swiftly activated his Shadow Steps, slashing out with his Crocodile Tooth Saw Blade.
The S2s that pounced over were instantly killed by him.
Just as those S2s were dealt with, a number of L2s charged out from various corners, carrying H1s facing Yue Zhong.
When those H1s opened their mouths, a number of fireballs fired towards Yue Zhong like cannons.
Yue Zhong immediately dodged into a nearby shop when he saw the H1s.
Just as he entered the shop, 3 Type 2 Hunters leaped down from the roof, together with 8 S2s that were hidden within the shop.
This was obviously a strategy that made use of the zombies hidden at every corner. If it were any ordinary Evolver, they could not have dealt with the Type 2 Hunters.
Facing this continuous waves of attack, a nether hole appeared in mid air, and 3 sharp bone spikes shot out from the hole, impaling the 3 Hunters, nailing them to the wall.
Yue Zhong sent out 8 instantaneous slashes, slicing the 8 S2s in halves.
After killing those S2s easily, his eyes flashed with suspicious, “What is going on? When did the intelligence of these zombies evolve to this state? They even know how to set traps?”
Even the smart huge-head Mutant zombie had not thought to do so.
Yue Zhong thought to himself, “What if there’s something like that Amaterasu inside here?” Amaterasu was the only zombie with intelligence that Yue Zhong had encountered. He possessed human-like intelligence as well as a terrifying combat ability. At that time, Yue Zhong had only managed to injure him, instead of killing him. When he thought of the possibility of something similar appearing in China, he was worried.
Chapter 495: The Woman who controls Zombies! Shatter!! As though under some command, the glass broke everywhere and a number of Type 2 zombies emitting some horrid stench charged into the shop.
Yin Shuang suddenly became blank, and leaped away from Yue Zhong’s embrace, jumping out of the shop.
“Yin Shuang!!” Yue Zhong watched Yin Shuang leaving him suddenly and was shocked. He quickly leaped after her.
Yin Shuang was not only the most important combatant under Yue Zhong, but was also a little girl that was extremely reliant on Yue Zhong. He viewed her as family, and seeing such a change in her, he could not help but be flustered.
Yue Zhong had just arrived at that building, when a Devourer that was hiding appeared suddenly, as it opened its jaws and spat out its poisonous gas.
Yue Zhong was taken aback. He quickly stopped his breath, and Devil Flame erupted around him to burn away the poison. He quickly slashed out at the Devourer, slicing it into 2.
“Not good! I inhaled some!!” Yue Zhong had killed the Devourer easily, but he realized his cells were starting to break down, as a dark poisonous mist emitted from his body. He was also started to lose consciousness.
The toxicity of the Devourer was extremely horrific, if it had been anyone else, they would have instantly turned into a zombie. Yue Zhong could withstand the change because of his high Vitality. Even so, his cells were fighting against the infection with all their might. He might be a Vitality-based Evolver, but his body was still not immune to infection.
At this critical juncture, Yue Zhong bit down on his lips harshly. The pain jolted him awake and he quickly retrieved his G-Type Cure, quickly injecting its contents into his body.
The moment the contents were absorbed, Yue Zhong felt his blood regaining its vigor and flow.
At that moment, 8 S2s pounced upon him, intending to bite down at his body.
His hands lit up in flames, as his powerful Devil Flame burst forth, enveloping the 8 S2s.
When the flames died down, only ashes remained, the 8 S2s had disappeared entirely.
“Ah! Blue Treasure Box!” After wiping out those 8 S2s, Yue Zhong heaved a sigh of relief and was about to continue up the stairs when he noticed a blue treasure box beside the corpse of the Devourer.
Yue Zhong was overjoyed and picked it up.
The Blue Treasure Box was extremely rare, even higher grade than the Green ones. At the early stages when there were a few Type 3 Mutant Beasts, they tended to drop a few. However, the world had mutated to a state where even killing those Type 3 monsters might not guarantee any drops. Most of the boxes that appeared were Green, and Blue ones were rare.
Yue Zhong obtained a Blue Treasure Box from the Devourer, this caused him to be happy.
With a flash, a pair of wings of about 7m wide appeared in his hands. They were black in color, seemingly made up of some metal alloy, their edges sharp like blades, and the entire pair of wings was covered in mysterious runes, with a round pocket in the center.
“Level 6 Treasure, Dark Wind Alloy Wings, able to block bullets of 14.5mm. Upon equipping, allows the user to glide for a short distance from 20m above the ground. Once provided with a Type 3 Nuclei, the user can use the wings to fly. Can reach a maximum speed of sound barrier. Consumes energy for nucleus while flying.”
“Good treasure!” Yue Zhong looked at the Dark Wind Alloy Wings and his eyes lit up with excitement. With this, he could fly and still battle in the skies.
After all, there weren’t many Evolvers that could fly. Of the Evolvers under Yue Zhong, they numbered over 2,000, yet there were only 3 who could fly. One of them was a wind-controller, the other were air-controllers. In fact, they weren’t really flying, just using their abilities to send their bodies into the skies. However, it could not be maintained for long, at most, they could do so for 5 minutes.
Having gained this Dark Wind Alloy Wings, it could complement his other skills, and allow him to fly. In any case, he wasn’t lacking in Type 3 Nuclei.
As he stopped here to inspect his new equipment, the evolved zombies below were slowly making their way up.
His eyes flashed coldly and with a thought, a nether hold appeared in mid-air, and 10 sharp bone blades shot out, twisting and slashing into the group of zombies, turning them into mincemeat.
White Bones killed the zombies then stepped out of the nether hole, and guarded at the entrance of the building according to Yue Zhong’s instructions.
Yue Zhong came to the 2nd level of the store, coming face to face with 6 Devourers crawling on the ceiling. They opened their jaws and shot out their tongues that were capable of tearing through armored vehicles.
The Crocodile Tooth Saw Blade in his hand slashed out with multiple beams, causing 6 tongues to be severed as murky blood splattered everywhere.
He then pulled out his Stinger and fired 6 consecutive shots.
Peng! Peng! Peng!
Following the sound of gunshots, the 6 Devourers had their heads blasted open and they dropped from the ceiling.
After killing those 6 Hunters, Yue Zhong activated his Bone Encompassing Armor, his entire body encased in the bone carapace. He surveyed his surroundings, turning to fix his gaze on some broken windows.
His eyes flashed coldly and he walked closer to take a look.
All of a sudden, 4 Type 2 Hunters leaped in from outside, opening their jaws and firing their tongues.
4 sharp spikes shot out from Yue Zhong’s shoulders, slicing through the tongues, while another 4 shot out from his chest, piercing the heads of the Hunters, before flinging them away.
Having gained intelligence, White Bones was able to utilize its skills effectively based on its own judgment to deal with enemies.
Yue Zhong looked out and noticed that Yin Shuang was currently shivering while kneeling in front of a figure, atop another building.
That person was a beautiful woman in a long white dress, with a lush head of thick hair. Her skin was fair and her features were exquisite, yet she had a sense of being untouchable.
Beside her, stood 8 S3s, 2 L3s, and a Devourer.
Yue Zhong opened his hands and a bone spike shot out, impaling the wall of the next building.
As the bone spike retracted, Yue Zhong was pulled towards the roof of that building.
Yue Zhong saw Yin Shuang shivering badly and he shouted in anxiety, “Yin Shuang, are you ok?”
Yin Shuang turned to face Yue Zhong, although her eyes were still blank, “Father, is she my mother?”
“No! Yin Shuang, she is not your mother.”
Yue Zhong turned to face that cool-looking beauty and charged towards her. He could tell that she was the one who was the cause of everything happening here.
In a few breaths, Yue Zhong had already appeared behind her, reaching out with his right hand to grab her pale neck.
That act of grabbing her was ridiculously simple, he had in fact prepared a few countermeasures in case she acted out. It was as though she was just a normal person.
Yue Zhong exerted pressure and threatened, “Stop resisting and stop your controlling over my Yin Shuang!”
The cold beauty glared at Yue Zhong hatefully and gritted her teeth, “Kill me! All you beasts. Even in death, I will not become your toy!”
At this time, the 8 S3s, 2 L3s, and Devourer charged at Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong frowned slightly and released the beautiful woman, pulling out his huge Black Tooth Blade, slashing out at the incoming zombies.
With a powerful blade beam slashing out, 9 zombies were turned into mincemeat, at the same time, 2 powerful Devil Flame incinerated the brains of the 2 L3s.
When the beautiful woman witnessed this, her eyes also flashed with shock. She knew how powerful the zombies she was controlling were. She had made use of them to tear through a few overpowered Evolvers, and to see Yue Zhong killing her trump card in such a casual manner, she could not help but be shocked.
After dealing with the 11 evolved zombies, Yue Zhong pulled out his Stinger and pointed it at her, “I have no idea what kind of misunderstandings you might have towards me. I did not come here to capture you to be my toy. However, I’m not some nice guy. Stop trying to control my Yin Shuang, otherwise, I will not hesitate to blow your brains out. I think that if you were to die, your control over my Yin Shuang would be stopped. I don’t like to kill without reason, but this does not mean that I will not kill.”
The beauty looked at Yue Zhong, touching her neck while snorting coldly and stopped casting her ability.
Yin Shuang, who had been kneeling and shivering, immediately stood up and leaped into Yue Zhong’s embrace, “Father!! Father!!” Chapter 496: Triple-Spirit Evolver! Yue Zhong saw that Yin Shuang had returned to him and his mood became better. He asked, “I’m Yue Zhong, what’s your name? The beasts that you were referring to, who were they? What happened here?”
The cool beauty assessed Yue Zhong for a while, before saying, “I’m called Liu Yue Mei. Are you from outside?”
He replied, “That’s right.”
She continued to ask, “Are there still many zombies outside?”
Yue Zhong replied, “Many. In fact, many places are still overrun with zombies.”
Although Yue Zhong had gained control of the whole Central Plains, in truth, there were still many towns and villages containing zombies. He had only controlled the important industrial cities and counties.
Even Zhang Kou City had nearby villages that were not entirely cleaned up yet. It was because it would take a lot of time, and it might divert his attention away from the important task of advancing into the capital.
The zombies in those smaller villages were left to hunters to deal with. After all, since the corpses of zombies were vital nutrients to the Mutant Plants, Yue Zhong had set up a market to purchase zombie corpses.
From there, plenty of hunting teams popped up to earn money. It was a dangerous task, but the rewards were attractive and those who did not wish to confine themselves into working at factories managed to find work as hunters. It fulfilled Yue Zhong’s objectives as well.
In such a process, a new culture emerged. In the past, bounty hunters were a rare breed of occupation, and now, it had become the highly sought-after job for those who loved risks and high returns.
Yue Zhong stared straight at the lady and said solemnly, “I have already conquered most of the Central Plains. Zhang Kou City is already under my control. I have established a form of government there, and I’m highly interested in your ability. Do consider joining us.”
Her brows arched, as she challenged, “What if I decide not to, what will you do?”
Yue Zhong replied slowly, “Then I will have to apologize, your ability is too dangerous. If you don’t, I’ll have to eliminate you right here.”
Liu Yue Mei could control zombies, this was one of the sickest abilities Yue Zhong had come across. Although she was weak, the zombie troops she controlled could easily wipe out a peak level Evolver. With such a dangerous entity, if Yue Zhong had no means of controlling her, he would not leave her to his enemies.
In the system, there were many abilities that could be bought. However, the miraculous ability to control the zombies could not be bought from the system.
The easiest to obtain was the Firearms Manipulation Specialization skill once one turned into a soldier, while the other was the Medical Specialization for those who became medics.
Liu Yue Mei had an ‘as expected’ look, as she replied indifferently, “As expected! If I were to join you, what do I have to do?”
Yue Zhong looked at her and said, “I would like to know what your skill is called as well as its limitation. From there I can assign you tasks. You will be paid and treated according to your contributions. At the same time, you won’t have to worry about me lusting over your body. In fact, I have a number of women by my side, each and every one of them is even more beautiful than you.”
She snorted before replying, “My skill is the Third Order Zombie Control. I’m a Triple-Spirit Evolver. I’m currently level 60, and the maximum number of zombies I can control is 500. This refers to ordinary zombies. As for evolved ones, the numbers will be lesser.”
Yue Zhong’s brows arched as he asked, “Triple-Spirit Evolver?”
It was the first time that he heard such a term.
She replied somewhat haughtily, “The term Triple-Spirit Evolver means that each time I level up, other than the points to be allocated, there will be a fixed increase of 3 points in Spirit per level.”
When Yue Zhong heard that, he couldn’t help but tremble in shock.
Such an existence was truly terrifying. It meant that Liu Yue Mei’s innate talent was insanely high. Each time she gained a level, her Spirit was definitely stronger than any other person. Her only weakness was her weak survivability. However, if she had enough protection, she could unleash a terrifying combat strength.
Furthermore, with such a high level of Spirit, other than controlling zombies, she could use the system to learn other offensive and defensive spells. At that time, she would truly be a force to be reckoned with.
Yue Zhong chuckled and said, “Very good. I can assign you the rank of a Major, with the perks and treatment of one. Of course, you will have to use your abilities to wipe out zombies to earn that rank and promote.”
Her gaze flitted about before she replied, “It’s fine to join you, but I have a condition!”
Yue Zhong said, “Name it!”
Liu Yue Mei turned around and went down the stairs, “Come with me!”
Yue Zhong carried Yin Shuang and followed her out.
As they went past a few alleys, they came to a huge warehouse.
In front of the huge warehouse, there were 2 L3s. She eyed them and sent out a spiritual wave, and the 2 L3s pulled the door open.
“Sis, you’re back!”
The moment she entered the warehouse, a dozen little kids came running over.
A few of these youths, looking about 13 or 14 looked at Yue Zhong and Yin Shuang warily, and asked, “Sis Liu, who are these people?”
The rest of the kids also took a few steps back, hiding behind Liu Yue Mei.
Liu Yue Mei looked at them with a sense of warmth, “Little Zhen, don’t be afraid. They’re my friends.”
Yue Zhong looked at them, not saying anything, as he turned to look at Liu Yue Mei.
She returned his gaze and said, “Come with me!”
Liu Yue Mei brought Yue Zhong further into the warehouse, and they came across a number of women lying by the wall. Most of them had their legs broken, some even had their arms chopped off. Some of them had faces full of burn scars, while others had bulging tummies as though they were pregnant, but their limbs were frail and weak.
“This is the result of those bastards’ actions.” Liu Mei Yue eyed those women, her gaze full of vengeance as she revealed what happened to this city.
After the world changed, the entire underground city was also filled with zombies.
However, since this was a satellite base, the defense wasn’t too weak. There was a special forces team as well as firepower to ensure the safety of the place.
As the apocalypse continued, the soldiers were all deployed to kill the zombies and rescue the citizens.
The survivors that were rescued retreated to the city center, waiting for rescue. Because the special forces started to transform into zombies as well, and the remaining soldiers had no way of clearing the rest of the zombies.
There were enough rations in this city, at the start, the situation was stable. With the passing of time, an Evolver by the name of Wei Xian suddenly appeared, launching an assault on the upper echelons of the society as well as the special forces, killing them all and snatching authority.
Wei Xian was a Special Forces soldier that possessed incredible combat skill. When he awakened as an Evolver, he was practically unparalleled within the city. Prior to the apocalypse, he had been a nice person, and a model soldier. However, when the world changed, he began to give in to his inner desires, turning into a lustful and violent person.
Wei Xian had swiftly organized a team to be his teeth and claws, as they holed themselves up in the center of the city, eating their fill while toying with the women. The rest of the survivors were treated like shit. Those in the warehouse were the women who had been broken by Wei Xian and his gang of cronies.
Liu Yue Mei had taken the opportunity to escape during Wei Xian’s fight for power. During her escape, she had awakened as an Evolver and gained her skill, making use of it to kill her pursuers, at the same time, forcing Wei Xian and the rest to be stuck, with no means of escaping the center of the city.
Yue Zhong asked curiously, “Why not kill those bunch of bastards? Since you have so many evolved zombies, you should be able to kill them easily.”
The L3s were impervious to normal weapons, not many Evolvers were a match for them. Even for Yue Zhong, he had to utilize the Devil Flame to incinerate them.
As for the Devourers, even Yue Zhong almost perished at their hands, and the claws of such a freak could kill any ordinary Evolver.
She gritted her teeth as her fury erupted, “Those bastards are holding the children hostage in order to threaten me! The moment I get the zombies to get too near to them, they will execute all the children within. If I were to let the zombies charge in and kill him, the children in there will all die! That bastard even resorted to something like this!”
Yue Zhong glanced at her strangely, he had not expected this woman to be so kind-hearted. It was truly rare in this world.
Liu Yue Mei looked towards Yue Zhong with a resolute gaze, “The condition for me joining you is this, you have to send people to take care of these women, and help me to take out Wei Xian, rescuing the kids from his hands.”
Yue Zhong replied, “Fine! Even if you didn’t raise it, I will send men to take care of these women and kill that bastard Wei Xian. This is what a leader, a person should do. I don’t want to take advantage of you. Do you want to raise one more condition for yourself?”
She looked at Yue Zhong somewhat taken aback, and sighed before she shook her head, “No need. As long as you satisfy those conditions, it’s more than enough for me.”
Yue Zhong replied, “Take me to Wei Xian!”
Under her lead, Yue Zhong came to the center of the city, where a number of walls stood high and tall, surrounding a few towering buildings. Chapter 497: Sneak! Outside of the large gates, there were a few security cameras swiveling every once in awhile, taking in the surroundings. The rest of the base was shrouded in darkness, however, a few structures were still lit.
This was the core of the underground city, and surrounding it were plenty of zombies patrolling around without stopping.
Liu Yue Mei looked at the base with undisguised hatred, “It’s right here. Wei Xian that asshole is here.”
Yue Zhong took a look and said, “Can’t you control the zombies to assassinate him? It isn’t too difficult for the Type 2 Hunters to breach in.”
The Type 2 Hunters were natural predators if attacked by them in the dark, even a Level 60 Evolver would perish. Someone as strong as Yue Zhong had almost fallen at the continuous ambushes earlier.
Liu Yue Mei hesitated for a while, but decided to reveal the shortcomings of her power in the end, “I can control the zombies to gather together and issue them some simple commands. But I cannot order them to kill an enemy outside of my vision. Otherwise, they will go out of control and attack as per their instinct.”
Yue Zhong nodded and activated his Second Order Stealth, disappearing into the night, “So it’s like so! Go ascertain his position.”
Liu Yue Mei watched in shock as Yue Zhong disappeared right in front of her eyes. She adjusted her emotions then controlled the 2 L3 by her side to come right in front of the base.
One of the zombies went to press the communication button near the gate.
Her voice rang out, “Wei Xian, I know you’re in there. I want to see you!!”
As her words rang out, a number of bright lights shone towards her position, at the same time, the security cameras near the gate swivelled to lock onto her position.
After a while, an image appeared on the electronic display near the gate.
A bald man with a naked upper torso, his aura sharp, and his muscles ripped, appeared. There were 2 beautiful naked girls in his embrace, as well as another 2 kneeling on the ground, licking his feet. This man was precisely Wei Xian.
He kicked the 2 women by his legs away, his body edging forward slightly, “Liu Yue Mei, have you thought it through? As long as you are willing to become my woman, the both of us can leave this place with our powers. Once we go above, with our strength, we can establish a powerful kingdom. By that time, we are the law, we can do whatever we want to. Everyone else will have to grovel at our feet.”
Liu Yue Mei looked back in disgust, her gaze icy cold. “Even if I were to die, I would not become your woman. This time, I’m here to discuss a deal with you. Release the children, and I will control the zombies to allow you to leave.”
Wei Xian laughed out, “Miss Liu, do you take me for a fool? If I were to hand the kids over to you, won’t you just control the zombies to kill me after?”
Wei Xian waved his hands, pulling out a naked boy who was all skin and bones right in front of him, “Forget it, since you’re so pitiful, I’ll let you have some appetizers. Get 200 jin of food in exchange for this boy.”
Liu Yue Mei looked at the state of the boy and erupted in fury, “You damn beast!”
“You dare to scold me? Sure, let’s see if this teaches you a lesson!” Wei Xian’s eyes flashed with a cruel gaze, raising the gun in his hand towards the boy’s head and he laughed savagely.
The boy immediately cried out in shock and fear, his snot and tears flowing down his face. His skinny frame also started to tremble uncontrollably, “No! Don’t kill me! I don’t want to die!!”
Following a loud gunshot, a bullet hole appeared in the boy’s head, as he slumped lifelessly to the ground.
Seeing this, the 4 naked beauties kneeled down on the ground and trembled as well, not daring to raise their heads. They were afraid of antagonizing this devil.
Having been trapped in this underground city for a long time, with uncertainty and fear towards the future, Wei Xian was pushed to the brink of insanity. From time to time, he would just kill, and these women did not dare to anger him.
Liu Yue Mei’s eyes blazed with fury as her body trembled from the rage as well. However, she was helpless. She might have an insane skill in controlling zombies, but the skill had its limits as well. Her personal combat abilities were currently slightly above ordinary people. She wasn’t a match for Wei Xian.
Wei Xian waved his hands and another 15 year old boy was dragged right in front of him. He chuckled at Liu Yue Mei, “Miss Liu. You have just caused the death of an important hostage. Now I want 600 jin of rations. If you bring it, this boy is yours. Of course, if you can’t do so in 3 days, I will eat him!”
It had already been over a year since the apocalypse began, and although there weren’t shortage of food in the center of the base, the inhabitants had gone through quite an amount. There was the worry of insufficient food going around. In order to save on the food, Wei Xian had allowed his subordinates to resort to cannibalism.
Liu Yue Mei gritted her teeth in hatred, “I got it! I will bring 600 jin of food to exchange for him in 3 days. You better not be killing anyone else.”
Wei Xian replied indifferently, “I kill whoever I want to kill. What business is it of yours? However, if you do bring the food within 3 days, I can promise not to touch him.”
Liu Yue Mei shot him a deep glare, before turning around to leave.
Seeing her leave, the lights scattered and the electronic display dimmed. The rest of the surveillance cameras swivelled elsewhere.
Yue Zhong appeared from the dark, “Where is he?’
Liu Yue Mei pointed to the highest structure within the base, “That building over there. The 7th level hall. He should be engaging in shit with his subordinates.”
Yue Zhong turned to look at the structure, and his body disappeared into the night again.
The walls surrounding the center of the city were about 4m-tall. Yue Zhong leaped lightly and went over easily.
When he landed, he immediately shot for the 7-storey tall building.
As he passed through the center, he could see plenty of human bones and corpses littered about everywhere. It was hell.
In barely 10 seconds, Yue Zhong had arrived at the building, which happened to be the only lit one. He stretched out his hands and a strand of silk shot out from his ring.
The silk pulled him up to the roof of the building and he utilized his Devil Flame through his fingertips to melt the glass of a window.
He then entered the room without much difficulty.
As he entered the room, he saw many little girls without a single shred of clothing being locked in cages like animals.
Most of them had blank expressions even after seeing Yue Zhong suddenly appear. A few of them covered their mouths with expressions of joy and fear at the same time. They had hoped for a hero to come save them, but their hopes had been dashed time and time again. They already lost hope.
“This beast!” Yue Zhong saw the state of these girls and his eyes flashed with fury.
A little 12 year old came to the front of her cage, her skin fair and a collar around her neck, as she looked at Yue Zhong expectantly, “Uncle, are you here to save us?”
He looked at her and replied, “That’s right, I’m here to save you! Where’s the hall?”
The little girl swiftly replied, “It’s on the left once you exit from here. Uncle, you must be careful, Wei Xian is an Evolver. His main attribute is speed. He had also 3 Evolver experts with him. One of them is called Zhang Er Dan, he can transform into a werewolf. Another if called Liu Hong, she can control her hair, and the last one is called Xu Wei, he has monstrous strength.”
Right at this time, another naked girl had a strange glint in her eyes as she screamed out loud, “Enemy!! Ah!!! Enemy!! Boss Wei Xian, someone is here to kill you!! You must be careful!!”
The cute girl who had advised Yue Zhong looked towards her fellow captive in disbelief, “Zhang Li, you!!!”
There was a venomous look and gloating in Zhang Li’s eyes, “Boss Wei Xian! Lu Rong has betrayed you!! She has revealed information about you!! Lu Rong, once Boss Wei Xian comes later, you’re dead!! I hate people like you. This time, Boss Wei Xian will turn you into a bitch!! Haha!! Haha!!”
Zhang Li had gone crazy under the torment and humiliation of Wei Xian and his men, and her jealousy and hatred was projected onto those who had not yet been harmed. She just wanted to obtain Wei Xian’s love, and get a better position.
Following a gunshot, Zhang Li had a bullet hole in the middle of her brows, fresh blood flowing down. Her face was still contorted in a gloating look.
Yue Zhong eyed the corpse with a cold look, “What an eyesore!” Chapter 498: Artificial Intelligence! When the rest of the girls saw how Yue Zhong took out Zhang Li without hesitation, their hearts chilled.
Even Lu Rong, who had approached Yue Zhong to help, felt fear and backed up a few steps. If this man in front of her could kill without blinking, he wasn’t anyone merciful.
Yue Zhong looked at them and spoke to what seemed to be blank air, “Saka, you protect them.”
After that, Yue Zhong disappeared from the room.
By now, because of Zhang Li’s scream, the entire building had raised the alarm.
Wei Xian’s subordinates had begun to move, and Yue Zhong had not left far from the room when he saw 4 gun-toting militants.
The 4 of them charged at Yue Zhong the moment they saw him.
However, Yue Zhong disappeared right in front of their eyes, reappearing behind them.
At the next instant, the bodies of the militants split apart, as large amounts of blood splattered everywhere, dying the hallway. Normal people could not catch Yue Zhong’s movements at all.
Even for Evolvers, other than those who were high-level, very few could withstand a strike from Yue Zhong.
With a few slashes of his blade, the huge door to the hall was split apart. Yue Zhong kicked right through it and stormed into the room.
He discovered that 3 men were naked, surrounded by over 20 naked women. In fact, there was still a man engrossed in pounding another woman.
There was a strong smell of sex and grime in the hall.
Wei Xian looked at Yue Zhong and smiled in appreciation, “You must be the assassin? Truly gutsy eh? I’m Wei Xian, the leader of this base. I admire you, how about working for me. As long as you agree, the women here are yours to toy with. If you like virgins, I have a few stashed away. I even have a few non-mature pets lying around. As long as you join me, those toys will be yours.”
In this apocalypse, there wasn’t any form of entertainment. Since Wei Xian and the rest were trapped here, the only form of fun they had was to toy with the women. He had made use of them to pull over Zhang Er Dan, Liu Hong, and Xu Wei.
Although Liu Hong was a woman herself, she was an ordinary-looking lesbian. Before the apocalypse, she had not been accepted, thus, she had tried to suppress herself. After the world changed, having obtained some strength, she began to indulge in her desires.
Yue Zhong’s gaze was cold as he stared at Wei Xian, pulling out his Stinger and immediately firing, “Human scum! Go to hell!”
With a single gunshot, before Wei Xian even had the time to finish his words, his brains had been blown apart, as red and white matter splattered all over the woman beneath him.
The naked Zhang Er Dan saw Wei Xian’s death and he roared out in rage, triggering his werewolf transformation, “Damn it! You dare kill Boss Wei!! I will avenge him!!”
The Stinger sounded out once more, and the just-transformed Zhang Er Dan slumped to the floor with a bullet hole in his wolf-head.
Wei Xian and Zhang Er Dan were like invincible existences to the ordinary people of the underground city, but to Yue Zhong, they were just trash. Any elite Evolver under him could easily take them out.
When the naked women on the ground saw how easily the 2 demons of their lives were killed by Yue Zhong, their hearts were full of shock.
After Yue Zhong took out Wei Xian and Zhang Er Dan, he discovered Liu Hong and Xu Wei each gyrating their own women passionately. As to the events that just occurred, they seemed oblivious to them.
Yue Zhong saw the glass table filled with some white powder and he frowned deeply. Pulling out his Crocodile Tooth Saw Blade, he slashed out at the 2 cocaine-snorting Evolvers.
With a flash of his blade, their heads rolled to the ground, fresh blood spraying everywhere.
The naked women seemed to be used to the sight of death, although they were scared, they didn’t scream out like most normal people.
Yue Zhong glanced around and announced dryly, “I need someone who’s familiar with this place to lead me around. I want to rescue everyone out of here. Whoever has the ability stand up, I will ensure her safety, and I promise, not only will she live with dignity from now on, as long as I’m alive, she will not be short of food and clothes.”
There were over 20 naked beauties all around, and such a scene was more than enough to send a hot-blooded man dizzy.
However, Yue Zhong was someone who had his fair share of beauties, and these women weren’t enough to shake his resolve.
One bespectacled lady with fair skin and dressed in black lace, her demeanor charming and elegant, stood up as she stared straight at Yue Zhong, “I’m called Zhang Ya, I used to be the overseer in this satellite base. I’m familiar with the entire place, please allow me to be your guide.”
Zhang Ya knew to grab hold of an opportunity when she saw it. She saw how casually Yue Zhong had taken care of those 4 Evolvers and knew she had to use all she had to hang on to this man. Even if she had to give up her body, she didn’t care, in any case, she had been humiliated before.
Right at this time, a dozen militants came charging in, pointing their guns at Yue Zhong.
Many of them caught sight of the naked women and their eyes shone with lust.
As Wei Xian’s subordinates, they had been able to play with women as well. It was just that the women they had vastly different from those that Wei Xian and his Evolvers kept for themselves. Thus, the soldiers turned sluggish.
“Die!” Yue Zhong pointed at those soldiers, as a dozen Devil Flame balls appeared and flew right towards their heads, exploding upon contact.
Zhang Ya saw how easily Yue Zhong killed those soldiers and her eyes flashed with shock, “Strong!!”
After all, even for Wei Xian who had been Special Forces prior, to kill a few soldiers, he would still have to exert quite some strength and effort. As for Yue Zhong, he had just killed dozens in the blink of an eye. That was the vast difference.
Yue Zhong than threw an assault rifle to Zhang Ya and said, “Come!! Bring me to the rest.”
She held it tightly and replied, “Yes!!”
In this world, there was only dignity with power, this, Zhang Ya had learned with her body.
She followed closely behind him, and the rest of the women felt regret, not taking the chance to stand up earlier.
Inside the base, there was no one who could stand up to Yue Zhong.
Any soldier that appeared was instantly taken out.
The survivors locked up in the various rooms were released one by one.
Other than the hired thugs of Wei Xian, there were about 250 people left in the building. Most of them were women, and only 30 were men. The rest were either his thugs or had been killed and eaten.
Wei Xian had cleaned out the men he didn’t need other than his subordinates. The reason for the 30 men surviving were because they had been experts in the operating of the satellites. Wei Xian knew that the base was a precious treasure, and thus, kept them alive.
Yue Zhong asked one man whose eyes were swollen, his body emaciated, as though the wind could blow him over, “Song Ben, when can we control the satellites?”
Song Ben had been one of the higher-ranking managers of the base, and was a technical expert in the satellite field.
Song Ben replied, “Leader, as long as we have enough power, and the base regains operations, I can gain control within 3 days.”
When Yue Zhong heard that, his eyes lit up with joy, “Great!!”
This time, he had come to gain the satellites. He didn’t have to worry about energy as he could easily set up the transfer of power from Zhang Kou City. Even if he didn’t have the grid, he could make use of fuel to generate power.
Song Ben seemed to hesitate before continuing, “Leader!! There’s another secret of this base.”
Yue Zhong became curious, “Oh? What is it?”
Song Ben revealed the secret solemnly, “There’s a powerful central computer in the base, with a completed artificial intelligence before the apocalypse. We call it Mars No. 1.”
Yue Zhong’s brows arched as he asked in suspicion, “Artificial intelligence?”
Song Ben replied, “Yes! It’s like the Red Queen from the Resident Evil shows. In truth, this satellite base is also a experimental area, meant to test the usage of artificial intelligence on the satellites. Mars No. 1 has a huge computing and processing ability. If you could gain it, it could monitor and control the satellites for you 24/7.” Chapter 499: Mars No.1! Yue Zhong was shocked, and he said solemnly, “Bring me there!”
Computers had an advantage over humans, that was the disregard for rest. Ordinary people cannot function without sufficient rest, as for computers, even running for a few months was no problem. Gaining the artificial intelligence would only spell benefits for Yue Zhong.
Song Ben replied, “Yes!”
Under his lead, Yue Zhong came to a small room beside the main satellite building, and revealed a tunnel.
The tunnel went on for quite a distance, before a huge electronic gate appeared in front of the 2 of them.
Song Ben pointed to the door and spoke apologetically to Yue Zhong, “This is the place where the supercomputer is kept. To enter, one must have the security clearance. I only know of this place, but I don’t possess the security clearance. I’ve been in there a few times to conduct maintenance, but it was under the lead of other higher-ups.”
He continued, “There’s an automatic defense system in there as well, if one were to break in forcefully, then the automatic defense will be triggered to eradicate all invaders.”
The supercomputer was the product of hard work, sweat and countless resources by the government prior to the apocalypse. Once humanity could utilize it well, then technology would advance at an insane pace. With the right amount of A.I, different appliances and technology could be produced to enhance quality of life.
With artificial intelligence, wars could be fought with robots instead of humans tearing into each other, hence protecting precious human life.
This sort of research was extremely classified, regardless of country. Ordinary people would never get a chance to get near it. Yue Zhong had never expected even his own China, that most had assumed to be lagging behind in technology, had already developed artificial intelligence under the shroud of secrecy. Even if it was in its initial stages, it was a feat to behold. Such a research location would definitely be protected heavily.
Yue Zhong looked at the electronic door and spoke mildly, “You back up first. I will open it up.”
Song Ben knew the danger and he quickly found a place for cover, “Yes!”
Yue Zhong came to the door and pressed his fingerprint to the scanner. It was the first lock he had to clear.
“Scanning fingerprint, not included in database. Does not have clearance to enter. Please get someone with the clearance to scan within 2 minutes, otherwise, will be treated as invader and eliminated!”
After that, there was the whirring of gears, and a latch opened up above the door, as a number of 25mm heavy machine guns appeared, pointing at Yue Zhong.
The 20 guns locked on to Yue Zhong, sealing his route of escape entirely. Even an armored vehicle would be blown apart by these numbers.
Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed coldly, and 20 Devil Flame balls flew out, incinerating the 20 guns into ash, “Burn!”
Song Ben hid in one corner and saw how Yue Zhong took care of the defense mechanisms, his eyes filled with shock, “Powerful!”
After destroying the 20 cannons, the flames in Yue Zhong’s hands condensed to form beautiful blades.
He slashed out at the electronic door, and the blade made out of flames tore into the metal as easily as a hot knife through butter.
After tearing a hole in the door, he walked in with large strides.
The moment he stepped through the door, Yue Zhong noticed various machines that he did not recognize fitted within the huge room, which was about 50m wide and 20m tall.
At the center of the room, there was a cylindrical area that linked to the roof, and there were display screens mounted throughout. All sorts of equipment and supercomputers were laid out in front of him.
Song Ben also entered the room quietly behind him.
The moment Yue Zhong entered the room, the supercomputers lit up and began to whir to life. There was a holographic projection beamed out, forming a young man with huge eyes, dressed in military uniform and a star-shaped hat.
The young man looked at Yue Zhong and spoke in a robotic voice, “I’m Mars No. 1!! Outside, you have no authority to enter this room. Since you have forced your way in, according to the country’s laws, you have committed serious treason and endangered your country, public security as well as your people… and so on. Please stop your actions immediately.”
Yue Zhong looked at Mars No. 1 and asked, “Mars No. 1, as an artificial intelligence that controls the satellites, you should know about the situation outside.”
Mars No.1 responded, “Yes! The zombies that are similar to those of Resident Evil have overrun the earth, and they are continually encroaching on the living space of humans. This is the situation outside.”
Yue Zhong spoke solemnly, “Very good! Since you know that, then you know how dangerous it is outside. I need your help to clear up the zombies and to re-establish the stability of the country.”
Mars No.1 replied mechanically, “No! You don’t have the authority to command me. If you want to gain my help, you must get No. 1 Head to enter the password, and assign you control. Otherwise, I will not assist you.”
Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed, as he continued to persuade this artificial intelligence, “Since the earth has already become like this, the No.1 Head is no longer here. The capital now has turned into a zombieland, and most of the governing personnel of this base is no longer around. Naturally, I have the ability to command you. Just assist me, Mars No.1!”
Mars No.1 continued to reject in its robotic voice, “In my programming, only those with access can give me commands. I can only assist those with the confirmed security clearance. Since you don’t have it, please leave.”
Yue Zhong’s face turned sullen, “You’re truly not willing to help me?”
Mars No. 1 replied, “This is part of my programming. I cannot go against my core programming.”
Yue Zhong’s expression turned cold, “Since it’s like this, then I should just destroy you. I will stop your energy source and reformat you. I have no need of something like you that is not useful! Since your base hardware is still powerful enough, I will wipe you away and leave only the basic functions.”
Although the A.I was powerful, if it could not be used by Yue Zhong, it was just a piece of junk. Even if it was the precious product of China’s research, he could not allow its existence to continue.
The A.I was capable of churning out large amounts of data every second, and without a supercomputer, there was no way the A.I could be supported.
Yue Zhong pointed to Mars No.1 and asked Song Ben, “Song Ben, tell me, where is the core of this thing? I want to take it and reformat it.”
Hearing his words, Mars No.1 finally had some reaction, as it quickly shouted, “No! You can’t do that! I am a top-secret research of China, and it was the cost of sweat, tears, and blood of countless scientists! If you were to remove me, based on your current technology, there will be no way to recreate another me even after 20 years! If you reformat me, you’re a traitor to the Chinese people!!”
Yue Zhong looked at Mars No.1 and his eyes flashed with a desperate look, “You fear death! What an incredible A.I. Fearing death is something that belongs to those with life. Seems like you have already developed some life-like traits. What a pity, no matter how good something is, if I can’t make use of it, then it’s just a piece of trash. You might be the darling of the country in the past, but now, since I can’t use you, your value is less than the supercomputer supporting you. After I wipe you away, I might not have gained as much, but it’s not too bad already.”
Mars No.1 seemed to struggle for a while, before it gave in, “Fine! Please don’t wipe me away. I can work for you. However, before you fully conquer the country, I can only extend your scope of control. After all, only the person of the highest status in this country can control me. It was one of the conditions carved into my programming. If I were to go against this protocol, my entire being will collapse. If you’re still not satisfied with this, you may erase me now.”
Yue Zhong asked, “Releasing some of the restrictions, what does that do for me?”
Facing the restricted control, Yue Zhong was more concerned about the help Mars No.1 could bring him. In this world, even as Yue Zhong’s power was expanding, he constantly felt a sense of danger weighing on him.
After all, after he gained the Evolving Temple, Yue Zhong had been clear that the zombies and Mutant Beasts were just the 1st level of difficulty on this earth. The next stage was going to be more terrifying, and who knows what dangers await the already-struggling humanity.
Mars No.1 replied, “I can help you control the satellites, and report the movements of overseas troops. I can also make use of the satellites to triangulate locations and maintain telecommunications. When you fight the zombies, I can be your eyes, and monitor the movement of the zombies. If you want to conquer the capital, I can provide you all the images of the capital.
Chapter 500: Liu Yue Mei’s Tyrannical Ability! Yue Zhong’s face revealed a slight smile and said, “Fine! Deal!”
If possible, Yue Zhong also did not want to resort to destroying Mars No. 1. The proposed assistance was more than enough to him. Especially the image displays of the capital.
With that, Yue Zhong would be able to determine any nearby ammunitions storage and weapon facilities, which could bolster his troops.
The number of zombies was simply too much, seemingly endless. Furthermore, all the soldiers under Yue Zhong were humans, and although they could take on a 100 each, they would need the necessary weapons to fight. Against a small group of ordinary zombies, they could still try to engage them in melee combat, but against a huge horde, they would definitely need firepower.
In fact, Mars No. 1 had a lot more under its control than what it had offered Yue Zhong. Although it was just an artificial intelligence, in the process of its programming, it had been installed with many restrictions. That was why it was limited.
Yue Zhong and Mars No. 1 agreed on the details, and White Bones was left to defend the entrance while Yue Zhong.
At the nearby storage that was enveloped in darkness, Liu Yue Mei stood on the roof and surveyed the outside quietly. She had the night vision ability as well. It was awakened together with her ability to control zombies.
Her brows furrowed deeply as she kept her gaze on the streets. She knew clearly how strong Wei Xian and the rest were. There were at least a hundred soldiers, with a few Evolvers. She was worried that Yue Zhong might die within.
As she watched, she noticed a small figure walking slowly towards her.
It was precisely Yue Zhong, and beside him, there was Lu Rong.
Yue Zhong lifted his head and his gaze met Liu Yue Mei’s. He grabbed Lu Rong and leaped once onto the 7m-tall building, his gaze still fixed on Liu Yue Mei.
Liu Yue Mei stared at Yue Zhong in disbelief, “You’ve already killed Wei Xian?”
Yue Zhong ruffled Lu Rong’s head and chuckled lightly, “You can ask her!”
Lu Rong smiled sweetly at Liu Yue Mei, “Big sister! Big brother here has already killed the big baddie Wei Xian. Now, everyone has been released!”
Liu Yue Mei’s cold countenance finally broke into a warm smile, “Thank you for fulfilling my wish. From now on, I, Liu Yue Mei, will serve you willingly.”
There were all sorts of people in the apocalypse, some like Yue Zhong who became warlords and leaders of their own factions that sought to grow, some turned mad from the fear and insecurity, some gave in to their inner demons, while others became cruel. There were also a rare few, that in spite of all of these, having experienced such horrors, they still shone with their humanity and kindness. It was especially bright and warm in this cold, cruel world.
Yue Zhong nodded slightly.
Liu Yue Mei’s ability was an important tool to Yue Zhong. He could not just allow it to be buried here. She was also big-hearted, thus, Yue Zhong would assign her to face the zombies in the future.
Right at this time, her face suddenly fell, “Not good!! The zombies are here!”
Yue Zhong looked out and realized that a huge group of them had suddenly appeared without warning.
Liu Yue Mei walked to a window and sent out her Spirit, issuing an order to the zombies under her control, “Attack! Kill all the enemies!”
Under her control, many zombies awaiting in different rooms charged right out, pouncing towards the zombie group.
The 2 groups of zombies clashed together in a frenzy and every moment, there would be a zombie head being torn apart. Under Liu Yue Mei, the tank-like L3s charged into the group and could pummel 5 or 6 zombies with every fist of theirs.
Liu Yue Mei’s zombies followed the lead of those L3s and took the advantage of the flow.
Suddenly, Liu Yue Mei gasped, “Quick! Run! There’s a zombie commander within the group. It can wrestle away my control. If we don’t escape now, all those under my control will be taken away! Ah!! It hurts!!”
Her words had just landed and she gripped her head tightly, kneeling on the ground, as she broke out in cold sweat.
Yue Zhong looked at the curled up Liu Yue Mei and his eyes flashed as he asked, “Are you able to sense the location of the commander?”
Liu Yue Mei gritted her teeth and said, “I can! I can’t pinpoint its exact location, but I know where it’s at generally. I may be able to get a clearer picture the closer I get.”
“Good! Come with me! We’ll go take it down together.”
Yue Zhong then carried Liu Yue Mei and leaped out from the window forcefully, leaping onto the roof of the next building. He then jumped off.
“Are you looking for death?!” Seeing Yue Zhong leap into the air with nothing below, Liu Yue Mei’s eyes widened in shock and shrieked at him.
Yue Zhong laughed, and with a swoosh, a pair of jet-black metal wings unfolded from his back, covered in mysterious runes. Propelled by the wind, it helped Yue Zhong and Liu Yue Mei glide gracefully through the air.
Liu Yue Mei was nestled in Yue Zhong’s embrace and felt the comfort of soaring over the air, and her eyes flashed in excitement, “This is an airborne treasure! The feeling’s so great! Is this what it’s like to fly?”
Flying freely like the birds have always been a dream of many humans. Although Liu Yue Mei was an Evolver with triple-Spirit growth, she was still a woman, and being able to fly in the sky felt extremely romantic.
Of course, she could feel like this because the speed at which they were gliding was pretty slow. If it was flying at Mach speed, her frail body would not be able to endure the resistance.
Yue Zhong roused her from her daydreams, “Where is the commander?”
She closed her eyes and concentrated for a moment, before pointing to a direction, “Over there!”
Yue Zhong swiftly made his way there.
Liu Yue Mei pointed to a building below, “It’s right here, I can only sense that it’s in here somewhere, but not the exact room.”
Yue Zhong looked down and saw the densely packed zombies, with 4 L3s and dozens of S3s. At the same time, there were many other evolved zombies within the building. To a normal person, knowing the commander’s location didn’t mean they could do anything.
“It’s enough!! Watch me!”
Yue Zhong looked down coldly and slapped out with his hand. At that instant, a terrifying blaze of Devil Flame roared downwards like a raging dragon, opening its jaws as it slammed downwards in a burst of flames.
The moment the Devil Flame dragon bit down, the entire building was instantly enveloped in flames, burning instantly.
The ordinary zombies within were instantly incinerated, while other evolved ones struggled for a while, before succumbing to the powerful flames.
From within, the howl of the Z2 sounded, as many zombies quickly rushed into the building, only to be consumed by the fire.
Following the shattering of glass, the Z2 leaped out of the room, with flames still on its body.
Yue Zhong had retrieved his Stinger and fired a single shot at the Z2, causing a large bullet hole to burst through its brain. It struggled for a moment and slumped into the sea of flames, burning away.
With the death of the Z2, the zombie horde quickly dispersed, returning to its state of confusion.
As for the other zombies near the building, they just stood there quietly and did not move.
Liu Yue Mei stared at the carnage below and turned to look at Yue Zhong, her gaze complicated, “You’re powerful!”
Yue Zhong was the strongest person she had ever seen before, even someone like her who could control 500 zombies had to admit that.
Yue Zhong looked back at her and said, “No! The true powerful one is you. I’m just a single person. Without you to locate the Z2, even I would be hard-pressed to deal with these zombies. There are many like me, even some are stronger than me. Yet the ability you possess is truly one of a kind. You will be a valuable asset to our cause, and the trump card against the zombies. I am really sincere in hoping that you will join us to fight and eliminate the zombies, reunite the country, and restore peace.”
With just her ability to control zombies, while it was truly a unique and strong one, it could be considered so-so by herself. Yue Zhong could easily eliminate 500 zombies, and many other Evolvers could do the same. However, no one else could locate the Z-types easily, not even Yue Zhong. With the ability to locate the commanders, Liu Yue Mei’s importance had heightened, and Yue Zhong sorely wished that he had that ability as well.
Liu Yue Mei smiled back, “En! I will help you wipe out the zombies, and conquer the country!”
Although Yue Zhong wasn’t a saint, he was truly devoted to eliminating the zombies. To Liu Yue Mei, such a man who did not lust for her beauty and body was rare, and she began to take interest in him.
