God and Devil World - Chapter 511-520
Chapter 511: Cleaning up the Traitors!
“Too strong!! What a terrifying Sky Fortress!” Chen Yan, the commander within the Sky Fortress watched as the zombies below were being wasted away like nothing, his heart full of excitement and shock.
It was the first time they were utilizing the Sky Fortress for battle, and they had stocked it up with large amounts of ammunition. As they flew across, the countless bullets and explosives rained down, blasting the zombies into pieces.
The soldiers on board the Sky Fortress erupted in cheers as they watched the zombies scatter.
The moment it appeared, the advance of the zombie horde came to a stop.
The soldiers of the 3rd Brigade also became revitalized and held out for the entire night.
Early the next morning, Yue Zhong had sent out Liu Yue Mei who had rested and recovered her Spirit, sending out the 20 Thunder Fighters as they began their assault on the horde, pinpointing the Z-Types.
As the explosions rang out, the Z-Types were taken out one by one, and the entire horde soon crumbled.
The moment they defeated the zombies facing the 3rd Brigade, Yue Zhong immediately brought Liu Yue Mei and continued towards the other areas.
The rest of the zombie hordes were dealt with one by one under Yue Zhong’s strategy.
With the main commanders of each horde wiped out, Yue Zhong then left his forces on the front line to continue dealing with the rest of the horde, while he retreated to rest.
Having lost the intelligent commanders, the rest of the zombie hordes were like punching bags to be killed by the 6 units of Yue Zhong’s forces.
Every day, a large number of zombies would be dealt with by a multitude of methods, and the corpses transported back to be converted to nutrients for the Mother Tree, Rice Tree and the rest of the Mutant Plants.
Bì Lǜ, under Ji Qing Wu’s watch, led 10,000 treants to hunt the zombies as well. Each day, the Treant army was able to slaughter at least 200,000 zombies alone.
The moment the Z-types and intelligent commanders of the zombies were killed, it spelled the doom of the huge zombie horde. However, because of the sheer numbers, even if all of Yue Zhong’s forces were to go all out, they required time.
The zombies had no commander and were gathered together, it was the best situation to deal with. In order to quickly eradicate these 10 million zombies, Yue Zhong had also brought most of his forces here to deal with them.
If these 10 million zombies were to suddenly come under the control of an intelligent evolved being, even if Yue Zhong were to use another nuclear missile, he would not be able to wipe them all out. Therefore, he was unwilling to allow them to exist for a moment longer than necessary.
On a large field in Ulan City, a number of soldiers were standing around, while a thousand survivors were tied up and forced to kneel. Their faces were pale with fear. Beyond the perimeter, the other survivors of Ulan City were pointing at them and murmuring among themselves.
Yue Zhong sat on a sofa, with Zhuo Ya Tong and Yin Shuang in his embrace, as he looked at Situ Jin who was brought before him with an indifferent expression, “Why did you betray me?”
Yue Zhong had not expected that this honest and professional soldier would choose to betray him. He had been on guard against Hu-er Ran, and instead, it was Situ Jin who he valued greatly and appreciated who had betrayed him. Whereas Hu-er Ran had been the one to fight with all his might on the front lines, and even in the direst of circumstances, he had not turned against Yue Zhong nor flee.
When Yue Zhong was dealing with the 6 separate zombie hordes, it had been his weakest moment, and thus, he had left the Sky Fortress as a trump card just in case Hu-er Ran rebelled. The ironic thing was that, instead of Hu-er Ran, it had been Situ Jin.
Situ Jin’s gaze was complicated as he eyed Yue Zhong, before softly replying, “You’re unorthodox.”
A lot of people valued orthodoxy, especially military men. It was precisely because Yue Zhong had been a normal person before the apocalypse, that Situ Jin chose to betray him. In every generation, there would be those who were loyal to the system, and the old order. It boiled down to a difference in beliefs.
“Orthodox?” Yue Zhong’s mouth twitched, as he let out a cold, condescending laugh, “Lian Da Zhong, convey my orders. Round up these rebels and throw them to the zombies. The women are sentenced to the Women Battalion, while the rest of the men are to be thrown into the Scum Battalion.”
Being fed to the zombies alive was one of the cruelest punishments. After they were eaten alive, they would be executed to prevent the turning, then used to nourish the Mother Tree. The moment the rebels heard Yue Zhong’s order, their faces turned pale and began to curse out loud.
Beside Situ Jin were many military officers, they were his buddies and comrades and were the main culprits in this rebellion as well. The moment they heard the sentence, they were all frightened.
One of Situ Jin’s oldest friend, the owner of the restaurant, kneeled down and began to kowtow profusely, causing his forehead to bleed, “Leader!! It was none of my business!! Situ Jin had forced me!! Please spare me!! Please, Leader!! I still have a 12-year-old daughter to take care of! Please!!”
Another young officer kneeled down and begged profusely as well, “Leader!! It was all Situ Jin, it was Situ JIn this bastard who forced me!! I wasn’t willing to betray you, he held a gun against me!! Please, spare me!! I’m willing to go to the Scum Battalion to kill zombies. Please!!”
Other than 7 or 8 of them who knew they had no way out, the rest began to denounce and curse Situ Jin as they kneeled and cried out for their lives. They did not want to be torn apart alive by the zombies.
Situ Jin got down on his knees and begged, “Yue Zhong, this time, it’s my fault!! I shall take responsibility! Take it out all on me!! This has nothing to do with the innocent, please show mercy and leave their families alone!”
Yue Zhong stared at him hatefully while speaking icily, “You want me to let these bastards go? No fucking way! Our tens of thousands of brothers-in-arms had been fighting with their lives on the line, and for what? Wasn’t it to protect you fucking lot? You bastards dare to strike us in the back when we’re risking our lives if you guys had succeeded, what then? Our brothers would all have to die with no burial grounds! Our families would suffer the same fate!! And you bastards still want to live?! You want to be a hero here?! Fucking eyesore!! Drag him away!”
One soldier came up and stared at Situ Jin with hate in his eyes, smashing down with the butt of his rifle, knocking Situ Jin’s teeth out, “Bastard!! Shut the hell up!! My brother had died on the frontline, and he was harmed by you bastards who backstabbed us!!”
When Situ Jin was smashed in the face by that soldier, his eyes turned dim, filled with pain. He was also from the military and knew the pain of the betrayal of his own people. The soldier’s words caused his heart to be full of pain and regret.
The rest of the soldiers watched coldly as the traitors were dragged out one by one, thrown towards the punishment pit.
In the pit, there were a dozen zombies caught by the soldiers of Yue Zhong’s army.
One of the rebels was dragged by 2 soldiers towards the edge of the pit, before being shoved in.
“No!!!! No!!!” The rebel dropped in, his face turning pale, as he shrieked out like a pig being slaughtered.
When the dozens of zombies caught the scent of a human, they began to shamble forwards, opening their rotting mouths and bit down viciously on the body of the soldier, tearing off huge chunks of meat.
The rebel screamed out loud as he was torn apart by the zombies, the scene extremely gory.
One by one, the rebels were thrown in and screamed as they were eaten alive.
Those who took part in the protest all felt their hairs stand in fear. Many of them had never seen how Yue Zhong did things, seeing it now caused them to be filled with intense fear.
Soon after, soldiers from the Scum Battalion marched out with whips in their hands, entering the field to drag off the soldiers who took part in the protests and their families, dragging them towards the Scum Battalion, where they would be treated as cannon fodder in the first instance.
Battling on the front lines was extremely tough, plus they needed all the help they could get, that was why Yue Zhong would sentence them to the Scum Battalion, otherwise, he would have killed them all.
Yue Zhong then turned to Ying Kong who stood at one side, speaking softly, “Ying Kong, you done well this time. How would you like to be rewarded?”
This time, in spite of Situ Jin’s betrayal, Ying Kong had chosen not to follow suit, instead, he stood against his ex-superior. This pleased Yue Zhong greatly.
Ying Kong immediately got down on his knees, pleading, “Leader, I only hope for you to have mercy on the family members of Commander Situ and the rest. I do not need any rewards!”
Yue Zhong’s countenance turned frosty, as he rejected it, “No! As criminals, I cannot pardon them. Otherwise, there will be no end to such episodes.”
Ying Kong sighed in his heart and knew that this person was hard to budge. He pondered a while before speaking up, “In that case, I hope to fight on the front lines, Leader!”
Yue Zhong nodded, “Ok! I promise you. From now on, you are the platoon commander of the 2nd Brigade 1st Company 2nd Platoon. Go!”
Ying Kong saluted, “Thank you, Leader!”, before leaving, slightly forlorn.
Yue Zhong then turned to face Lian Da Zhong and Cha Bi Lai, speaking indifferently, “Lian Da Zhong, Cha Bi Lai, this time, you 2 have done a great service.”
Lian Da Zhong immediately began to shower words of praise while being smug, “It’s all because of your amazing leadership and wise decisions, Leader. That was how we could have done this.”
Yue Zhong continued mildly, “I intend to set up a 6th Infantry Brigade, the commander shall be you, Lian Da Zhong, while Cha Bi Lai shall be the vice-commander. You may select your troops from the supplementary troops.”
The both of them immediately began to thank him profusely, “Thank you, Leader!! Thank you!!”
Chapter 512: Gates of Hell!
Although Lian Da Zhong was a shrewd person, he did contribute in his own way. Furthermore, he was somewhat loyal to Yue Zhong. That was why Yue Zhong was comfortable with giving him such a rank and post. Together with Cha Bi Lai, whose ability to command was exceptional, both of them would have no problems leading a brigade of their own.
Once he made his decision, he immediately pulled out 3,000 people from the supplementary troops and established the 6th Division, throwing them right into training and the killing of zombies.
Meanwhile, in Europe, the base of the Kingdom of God, the Council of Elders were currently engaged in heated discussion.
“Nuclear missile! That Yue Zhong actually dared use the missile! Didn’t China promise not to use it first? How can they break their promise?!”
“Yue Zhong and the old China has no relations, it’s no surprise that he used it.”
“20 million zombies, and he managed to navigate through such a difficult situation! Truly fearsome!”
“Sky Fortress, that huge metal chunk flying in the air must be the Sky Fortress. Seems like he has already gained the core diagram of that technology.”
“Yes! That’s the Sky Fortress! We must get the blueprint from him!”
“How could he give it to us so easily?!
Inside the meeting hall, as the Elders argued back and forth, they were filled with trepidation towards Yue Zhong’s ever-increasing military might. Especially the possession of the Sky Fortress.
The entire thing would require all 7 pieces of the blueprint, and the Kingdom of God themselves possessed a few of those blueprints and knew how mighty the entire thing could turn out.
Once it is manufactured, warfare would change entirely.
Erek heard the arguments going back and forth, while he sighed silently, “Nuclear missile! He actually resorted to that!”
With nuclear weapons, Yue Zhong had become a feared entity, especially since he even dared to fire such a weapon on his own home ground, not to mention any other countries.
The moment they knew he had used such a weapon, everyone in the Kingdom of God had become nervous about him, forget about sending any troops to deal with him.
Because of that single missile, the entire upper echelons of the Kingdom of God was thrown into a debate.
Yue Zhong did not know about the ongoings in Europe, he was only concerned with deploying his troops to wipe out the zombies that had lost the command of the Z-Types.
After 2 months, the huge horde was finally entirely eliminated, and the total expenditure of ammunition had been 90%. 3,000 soldiers of the Scum Battalion had perished, while hundreds of elites were lost as well.
Having finally eliminated the zombies, Yue Zhong led his troops into the capital.
Since all the zombies in the Capital had been brought away by Xuan Yuan and Feng Bo at that time and were already eliminated, Yue Zhong walked in extremely relaxed.
A jeep came to a halt on the dusty pavement, while Yue Zhong and Yao Yao stepped out.
Yao Yao, a natural Agility-based Evolver, had already grown to possess the Strength and Vitality traits as well, becoming a Triple-Attribute Evolver. Her level had reached 60, and since Ji Qing Wu was afraid of Yue Zhong being targeted, she had asked Yao Yao to come along as Yue Zhong’s guard.
Yue Zhong took a look at the once-lavish place, his eyes flashing with a strange glint, “So this is the Forbidden City?”
After he had recovered the capital, he had received a notification telling him to enter the Forbidden City, where he would truly complete the mission for recovery of the capital.
Yue Zhong laughed mildly as he walked further in.
Yao Yao followed closely behind.
The moment Yue Zhong stepped no more than 10 meters in, a flurry of notifications sounded out in his mind.
“Congratulations! For conquering the capital of China, you have gained the title ‘Conqueror of the Capital of China!’ The title grants you +5 in all 6 attributes. The title cannot be re-earned! Titles’ effects can be stacked!”
“You have brought your troops to conquer the capital of China and gained +5 levels, earning 10 points to be allocated!”
“You have brought your troops to conquer the capital of China, earning 1,000,000 Survivor Coins!”
“You have brought your troops to conquer the capital of China, earning Level 5 Defense Vest!”
“You have brought your troops to conquer the capital of China, earning 2 skill points to be allocated!”
“Congratulations on reaching Level 90, you have gained 1 skill point!”
As the notifications rang out, a black Defense Vest appeared in his hands.
“Level 5 Defense Vest: Upon equipping, +25 to all attributes. It can withstand the bullets from a 25mm heavy cannon, prevents radiation, poisonous gas, and the ability to resist all sorts of harsh environments!”
With a single thought, he quickly allocated the 2 precious skill points into his Devil Flame skill, and in his mind, the Devil Flame rune went through another transformation, gaining new lines of runes, and reaching a +2 Enhancement.
“As Yue Zhong had recovered the capital of China, defeating over 10 million zombies and the evolved intelligent beings, the 2nd Stage is brought forward. The Gates of Hell have officially opened!”
As the sound rang out in his mind, at the same time, a number of gigantic and monstrous doorways appeared all over the globe. The doors were etched with all sorts of engravings, depicting skeletons, Mutant Beasts, demons, werewolves, giant bugs. They gave off a terrifying aura.
When the doors appeared, all lifeforms near them were instantly filled with fear, as they scrambled to flee as far as they could. Many zombies didn’t manage to react at the first moment and were turned to dust.
At the same time, one of these doors appeared in front of Yue Zhong suddenly.
“The Tides of Hell has begun, from now on, 20 random people who have yet to join any faction possessing a Novice Village would be pulled to the Abandoned Lands of the 2nd World at any random time.”
When Yue Zhong heard this, his heart turned cold. Fortunately, he had already gained control of a God and Devil Novice Village early on, otherwise, had this announcement come on, he would lose 20 people randomly from time to time.
“You are the first leader to have recovered the capital of a major country, and thus, possess the qualifications to enter the beta-experience for the 2nd Stage. Are you going to enter the beta-experience for the 2nd Stage now? If you give up the right to enter now and would like to enter the beta-experience again, you will have to bring your troops to conquer another major capital that possessed over a billion people, with over a hundred million people in your faction.”
When Yue Zhong heard this, his face fell, “Fuck! Why is it like this?”
By conquering the capital of China, he had already expended over 90% of his reserves. If he wanted to conquer any other countries, it was basically an insurmountable task. He had never expected to have to make a choice the moment he conquered the capital.
“Should you enter now and last an entire year, once you return to this world, you’ll gain a treasure – Heart of Hope.”
Yue Zhong took a deep breath and asked, “Am I able to communicate with those from this world when I’m over there?”
“You may make use of the system as well as people present in the Evolving Temples to communicate.”
“Give me a moment!”
“You still have 30 minutes to make a choice.”
Yue Zhong swiftly summoned the few subordinates of his that he trusted and relayed everything he needed to, before sending them away from the Forbidden City.
When he had entered the Forbidden City, it was shrouded in a layer of mysterious lights, forbidding him from communicating with anyone outside of the light. However, the people beside him could pass through the barrier to go out.
When everyone had left, Yue Zhong then spoke solemnly, “I choose to enter the 2nd World!”
The moment his words landed, the Gates of Hell in front of him opened slowly, revealing a tunnel in the void.
At the same time, there was a flash of light, as a golden imprint appeared on his right hand.
“This is the system imprint, with it, you may communicate with those in your Evolving Temple. However, you may only use this once a month. You may test it out now.”
He looked at the imprint and with a thought, he found his consciousness appearing inside the Job Change Statue in the Evolving temple. He could clearly see a few soldiers currently undergoing job changes and choosing their skills.
Right now in Guang Xi, due to Yue Zhong’s development, many soldiers were brought there to become Enhancers, undergoing job changes.
Yue Zhong could become a hegemon over the Central Plains was because of the Enhancers that came out from his Evolving Temple.
“The gates would remain open for 10 seconds! Please enter immediately! After that, it will close shut!”
He heard the notification, turning around to look at the Gates of Hell. He took a deep breath and stepped inside.
Everything about the 2nd Stage was unknown, Yue Zhong only knew that things were about to get rougher, and he needed to check it out properly, in order to deal with anything.
When he entered the Gates, they quickly close behind him.
The scenery in front of him distorted and before he knew it, he had arrived at another place.
Yue Zhong surveyed his surroundings, only to see the entire place covered with blackened dirt, not a single hint of green anywhere.
The sky was overcast and grey, as though covered with dust everywhere, giving off a sense of suffocation.
Yue Zhong around this bleak place, and could not help but suck in a breath of cold air, “This is the 2nd World?”
He tried to look closer all around him, only to discover a wide barren land.
He found a piece of shrapnel and held it up to take a look, noticing that there were similarities between it and the shrapnel back at his world, “There must have been some major battle here!”
Chapter 513: Enter! The 2nd World!
Yue Zhong stared at the piece of shrapnel, thinking silently, “It’s fortunate, at least this piece means that the technology of this world isn’t too far out.”
Had the science of this world been too overpowered, he was afraid that he might get crushed to death without understanding what had happened.
Yue Zhong looked around, failing to find anything of value, before pulling out a compass to determine a direction and started walking.
He had just walked a few steps when suddenly, a man in tattered clothes appeared in front of him in a flash.
Following that, a number of people appeared in a similar manner beside him.
Yue Zhong took a few steps back, raising his Flame Blade up in wariness as he looked at the humans who had been sent over.
Yue Zhong was extremely clear that even though he was the Evolver with the highest-level back on Earth after all those additional rewards, there were other people whose strength might not necessarily be weaker than him. They might even surpass him. The Apostles of the Kingdom of God were existences that were on similar levels.
Some Evolvers had hidden away in the various mountain gorges in order to become stronger. These cultivators were not to be underestimated. Furthermore, who knew what mutations and evolutions had occurred, should Yue Zhong come across some sick freak who trained every day, even he did not have the confidence of dealing with them.
The lights flashed continuously for a while, as people were teleported with each light.
Yue Zhong observed the people carefully.
From among them, there were a few solo ones, as well as groups. The most was an entire group of 20 being sent over. This bunch looked to be students, some were naked obviously in the middle of something, while some were in non-mainstream makeup. The majority of them were Asians, while 6 groups were black, and the other 7 white.
When they were sent over, each of them had fearful expressions as well, while the majority looked around in alarm just like Yue Zhong.
Somehow, the groups of people segregated themselves according to their skin color extremely quickly.
One burly man, who had a ferocious expression barked out loudly, “What is this place? Damn it, is this another joke by that shitty God?”
Among the group of female students who had makeup on, one of them who had cute features suddenly squealed in delight, rushing up to an extremely handsome man, “Kang Ryu Chan!! You are Kang Ryu Chan of the Eastern Sunshine group! I’m a huge fan!! Ryu Chan, can you sign an autograph for me?”
“Kang Ryu Chan!! Eastern Sunshine’s Kang Ryu Chan!!”
“Ryu Chan, I’m your fan!! Please give me an autograph!!”
“Ryu Chan, I love you!!”
The few female students squealed in delight as they surrounded Kang Ryu Chan, gushing over him.
The Eastern Sunshine was a Korean boyband before the apocalypse and had some fame in China, earning many female Chinese fans.
A particular man who stood beside him looked at the Chinese girls and laughed coldly, “Ryu Chan, you’re truly famous eh!! Hehe, these Chinese girls are so crazy over you, adore you. You better control them well, they have some worth to them. It’s time I give vent to these stupid women.”
The corners of Kang Ryu Chan’s mouth lifted slightly as he replied, “Yes! Mr. Taewon!”
After which, Kang Ryu Chan began to address the students with the professional smile he had been so used to, accompanied by another man.
A number of gazes fell on those girls and Kang Ryu Chan.
Yue Zhong swept a glance at them, laughing coldly as he edged away. These stupid women would pay the price soon for their idiocy.
The commotion began to attract the attention of a few people. A group of 8 naked men and women turned to look at Kang Ryu Chan and the students.
One of the burly men had his sights set on one of the students, his eyes brightening as he licked his lips, “Not bad! These little chicks seem pretty hot.”
Without any intention to get dressed, he directly walked towards those fangirls while still naked, reaching out to grab one of them, while laughing boisterously, “Little bitch, get on your knees, let your master, I, have some fun!!”
Since all morals and ethics had gone out of the window since the apocalypse, the burly man had thrown all dignity and shame to the wind.
The fangirl immediately screamed out in fear, “Help!! Ryu Chan, save me!! Help!! Help!!”
Kang Ryu Chan immediately stepped forward righteously in front of the fangirl and barked out, “Excuse me, sir! Please stop your depraved acts right now!”
“Ryu Chan is so handsome!!”
“Kyaa!! I’m in love with you, Ryu Chan!!”
“Next time if I do marry, I must marry a Korean man. Korean men are all so charismatic!!”
One by one, the girls saw how Kang Ryu Chan stood in front of them so valiantly, their eyes flashing with adoration. The idol in their eyes was as heroic and charming as the Prince Charming of their dreams.
The naked man immediately grew furious, sending a powerful slap across the handsome mug of Kang Ryu Chan, “Fuck!! This senior’s matters, who the fuck gave you the right to interfere, Korean dog?!!”
With a resounding ‘pa’, Kang Ryu Chan was sent sprawling to the ground, a few of his teeth knocked out, his entire face bleeding.
Seeing how Kang Ryu Chan was sent flying by a single slap, the eyes of the person named Mr. Taewon turned cold, as he waved his hands.
2 other men bellowed in rage and got into a posture of taekwondo, before charging towards that naked man with a speed far surpassing a normal person.
Yue Zhong eyed the 2 men and recognized their abilities, “Enhancers!”
“Scram!!” The naked man turned to glare at them, his right fist hammering out like a cannon.
The 2 Koreans were immediately sent flying backward, spitting out a mouthful of fresh blood before losing all signs of life.
After killing the 2 Koreans in such an explosive fashion, his face flashed with a savage look as he grabbed Kang Ryu Chan by the head, lifting him up, “Gigolo, fucking kneel, or this senior will rip off your head!”
Kang Ryu Chan eyed the naked man, his body shuddering as fear flashed in his eyes. He immediately got down on the ground in front of the naked hooligan, kowtowing, “Please spare my life, master!! Spare me!! Don’t kill me!! Don’t kill me!!”
Those students had been protected all these while and did not experience the true cruel reality of this apocalypse, but Kang Ryu Chan knew, if he were to infuriate such cruel experts, he would definitely die as an ordinary person.
Seeing him kneeling so pitifully and kowtowing, the fangirls felt their hearts ache, as though their fantasy had been crushed.
The pretty fangirl rushed up towards the naked man with a pale face, “Don’t you bully Ryu Chan!! You bastard!!”
These young teenagers were going through their rebellious phase, and their thinking was still naive, hence, this young fangirl could not stand for her idol to be mistreated.
The naked man laughed cruelly as he shot Kang Ryu Chan a glance, “Hahaha! Little rascal, seems like you don’t truly understand the character of this Korean punk that you idolize. Interesting! Let me show you how cruel society is!! Kang Ryu Chan! Go tear her clothes off, and make her kneel. If she doesn’t, feel free to break her legs!!”
The fangirl was shocked and retreated a few steps, before mustering her courage to shout, “Ryu Chan would not do that!!”
The originally kneeling Kang Ryu Chan immediately exploded out like some deranged demon, grabbing the girl’s clothes forcefully and ripped them off.
With a loud tear, the girl’s clothes were torn off completely, revealing her bra and underwear.
Kang Ryu Chan looked as though he was possessed as he roared, “Kneel!! Kneel in front of master!! Otherwise, I’ll break your legs!!”
In order to live on, Kang Ryu Chan could only betray his own fan. In any case, it was not like he had any favorable feelings for her.
The fangirl could only stare blankly, the image of her idol shattering all around her. For this man in front of her, she had fought daily on the various discussion boards online. Even if this man had caused a woman’s miscarriage by kicking her, she had still shielded him and believed in him. As long as any of her friends dare speak ill of her, she would immediately fall out with them. For this man, she had even ignored her own safety to protect him. Now, he was forcing her to sacrifice her body, causing her to feel a rocking sense of despair.
In her shock, she kneeled down subconsciously, her expression full of despair and numbness.
“Lan Lan!! Kang Ryu Chan you bastard!!”
“Kang Ryu Chan you beast!!”
Seeing the utterly different Kang Ryu Chan, the rest of the fangirls began to curse out loud at him.
The naked man laughed out sadistically, “HAHAHA! Good!! Kang Ryu Chan, well done!! When this senior I, am done fucking with this girl, you and I will fuck her together!! Being fucked by her idol, she must be so excited and happy!! Hahahaha!!”
Kang Ryu Chan could only nod his head in a pathetic manner, like a dog, “Yes!! Yes!! I’ll fuck her properly!!”
The rest of the spectators stared at Kang Ryu Chan, their eyes filled with repulsion and reproach.
At this time, Yue Zhong spoke out coldly, “Are you done? If you are, get the fuck back.”
The naked man frowned and turned to face Yue Zhong, only to stare down the wide twin barrels of the Stinger pointing at him. Immediately, he felt an overwhelming sense of danger. He laughed dryly and immediately apologized profusely, “Sorry! Sorry!!”
Chapter 514: Strange Land!
Based on Yue Zhong’s personality, if someone had tried to rape a woman in front of him, he would definitely have blasted off his head without saying anything. However, it was just that he didn’t care for Kang Ryu Chan much as well, and decided not to deal with the naked man yet.
The naked man chuckled a little, before returning to his group. He did not choose to antagonize Yue Zhong, as his guts told him this man was terrifying, should he attempt to, he would most likely die.
The fangirl who had her clothes ripped by Kang Ryu Chan had a complicated gaze, as she stared at Yue Zhong deeply, before walking over, “Thank you!!”
After that, she returned to her friends, without so much as a second glance at her idol, and the whole bunch of them joined the rest of their friends.
When the scene was over, this group of survivors that had been thrown into the 2nd World had already segregated into different groups.
After they separated themselves, a middle-aged man in a suit asked, “What the hell happened? What is this place? Does anyone know?”
Everyone shook their heads, their expressions bewildered. They had been living decently on earth, who knew they were suddenly transported to this place.
Especially those girls who only knew to chase their idols. They had been living a carefree life under the protection of an expert, but now, they have seen for themselves how terrifying humans could be.
Yue Zhong was clear that this was a world of the 2nd Stage, other than that, he knew absolutely nothing. Hence, he kept silent, standing at a corner quietly while observing the rest.
One bespectacled man who looked dignified spoke out, “Everyone, keep quiet! Quieten down! Right now, regardless of where we are, we should stick together! I think we might have been teleported here by that God. It is important to find water and food. Without it, we will die here!!”
Hearing his words, everyone else felt their hearts run cold. They had not brought much with them. In a way, they had truly been thrown here without so much as a warning. There were no resources or rations they could have prepared beforehand. In such conditions, if they didn’t find water or food, they would not last more than 3 days.
The middle-aged man continued, “Everyone, I’m called Ma Fan. A snake cannot live without its head. If our small group does not have a leader to help command everyone, it’s not ideal. Ma Fan is not talented, but I’m willing to take on the heavy responsibilities of being a leader and lead everyone out of this dangerous place.
Ma Fan was a smart person. He knew the importance of being in a leadership position. In China, all the good stuff had been enjoyed by the leaders, while the rest of the people had to slog just to attain barely 1/10th of what the leaders had.
The naked man glanced at Ma Fan and spat, “Hmph! Who the fuck are you? Do you want to be a leader? You better challenge this senior fist. As long as you can win me, you can be the leader for all I care.”
Ma Fan was seemingly not angry as he chuckled, “Of course, the most important trait of a leader is his wits, not combat strength. I graduated from MIT and was a chairman of the Tianlu Group. I believe that I have the means to lead everyone out of danger.”
Ma Fan was not those who sought to settle things by strength. After all, he was not one to work to his disadvantages.
Yue Zhong eyed these unreasonable people and shook his head, walking towards the distance. He didn’t want to have anything to do with them.
This 2nd World was definitely fraught with dangers, Yue Zhong wasn’t willing to risk his lives for this bunch of people, nor was he willing to be their subordinate.
The moment he moved, the rest of the groups hesitated before moving in their own directions. After all, there was only death should they stay.
There was not a hint of greenery of life, nor food or the most precious, water. In order to live, they had to at least find a water source.
The group of fangirls chattered for a while before following Yue Zhong.
The one who was the prettiest and had her clothes ripped earlier ran up to Yue Zhong’s side, “Hello. I’m called Xiao Lan. What’s your name?”
“Yue Zhong!” Yue Zhong replied indifferently while continuing.
Xiao Lan gritted her teeth and continued, “Yue Zhong, thank you so much for just now. I didn’t expect Kang Ryu Chan to be such a person. I was truly blind!!”
She had liked Kang Ryu Chan, only to be let down with the earlier episode. It caused her idolization and feelings about him to crash and disappear.
Yue Zhong continued walking when he suddenly frowned, as a powerful sense of danger arose in his heart. He immediately barked out, “Stop!”
Hearing his shout, those who were on the same path were taken aback.
Many looked forward, yet did not discover anything.
One young hooligan looked at Yue Zhong and smirked, “There’s nothing! Don’t try and frighten us, fool!!”
The 8 hooligans shot condescending looks at Yue Zhong before continuing forth, “Let’s go! Coward!!”
One of them gave a wolf whistle to Xiao Lan and the rest, “Beauties! Come with us!! There’s no future with this scaredy-cat!! Us brothers will protect you girls!”
They pulled out their melee weapons, consisting of machetes and butcher knives, showcasing their muscles, hoping to attract Xiao Lan and her friends over.
If Yue Zhong had not shown his weapons earlier, they would have long since rushed over to chop him to death and snatch Xiao Lan and her friends away. However, they were wary of that Stinger in his hands and did not dare go overboard.
Xiao Lan and the rest retreated instead, standing behind Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong himself did not bother about those youths, instead coldly staring ahead. It was a vast plain of nothing, and there was no difference between the area in front and everywhere else. He did not sense any life forms, however, his danger perception was ringing like crazy, every cell in his body taut and screaming at him not to advance further.
Yue Zhong’s pupils narrowed as he sucked in a deep breath and said solemnly, “Retreat!”
After that, he quickly moved away.
Xiao Lan and the rest exchanged looks and followed his lead. They might be innocent, but they could tell that Yue Zhong was not joking.
One of the hooligans continued to jeer, “What a coward! There’s nothing there! Brothers, let’s go!! We’ll take a look!”
One of them looked at Yue Zhong with despise, in order to show off their bravado, they began to walk towards the region.
They pulled out their weapons and looked around warily.
The leader walked for a few hundred meters, and did not discover anything amiss, before turning to shoot another look at Yue Zhong, “What the heck! There’s nothing! Coward!!”
Yue Zhong ignored them and continued to stare at the rest of the groups, noting that most of them had already become smaller dots in the distance as they went about their own ways.
No one was willing to wait for their deaths here in this desolate place. They had to look for food and water, otherwise, they were doomed.
Xiao Lan then said, “Yue Zhong, let’s go over! If we stay here, we’ll just be waiting for death.”
Yue Zhong looked at the position of the youths and replied, “It’s dangerous there! We can’t go over.”
He was extremely confident in his perception of danger after going through so many battles. It had saved his life countless times. Although he couldn’t pinpoint the danger, he was not willing to go.
One of the girls, who looked like a bookworm, with her hair in a single ponytail, wearing thick spectacles, couldn’t help but ask, “Yue Zhong, I’m Shen Yi. Do you mind telling us what danger is there?”
Yue Zhong replied mildly, “I’m not too sure myself, I just feel that it’s extremely dangerous there.”
Another girl who had maroon hair, her skin fair and her makeup thick, shot Yue Zhong a glance, her beautiful features showing contempt, Coward! You retreat every time you feel danger? Are you still a man? Men should be brave and face every obstacle that comes their way. You haven’t even seen the shadow of your enemy and retreated, are you still considered a man?”
This pretty yet proud girl was called Kong Cui Yun and was one of the prettier ones in the group. Although she wasn’t drop-dead gorgeous, she was a decent beauty. She had been termed as a wallflower before and had been the object of pursuit of many boys.
Yue Zhong glanced at her and ignored her.
In all his conquests, he had come across countless beautiful women. While Kong Cui Yun was pretty, she wasn’t comparable to the beauties in his own harem, and could not affect his mental state.
Kong Cui Yun saw Yue Zhong actually ignoring her, and a sense of fury arose in her heart. She frowned and was about to shoot her mouth off.
At this time, one of the girls shrieked in fear, “He’s spewing blood!!”
Everyone looked towards the direction, only to see the loud youth kneeling on the ground, his complexion pale. His body was trembling uncontrollably as he continued to spit out mouthfuls of blood.
One by one, the rest of the youths also began to kneel, their faces contorted in pain as they spat out blood, rolling around as they struggled madly.
Kong Cui Yun watched this in horror, her own face turning pale. Had it not been for Yue Zhong’s warning, they would all have been part of the scene in front. Thinking to just how she had mocked him for being a coward, she felt her face burning in shame.
Chapter 515: Brutal Human-like Creatures!
At that moment, there were many people doubling over as they coughed out blood, while those who could immediately ran away from their positions.
Everyone looked all around in fear, not knowing what was happening.
“What is this place?”
“What’s going on?”
Everyone broke out in panic, and some even screamed out of fear. Dying without any reason was even more terrifying than facing Mutant Beasts.
Yue Zhong looked all around, and he couldn’t help but frown further. He had never seen such a scene before.
Yue Zhong surveyed the surrounding and walked towards the west, “Head that way!”
“Wait for me!!”
Kong Cui Yun and the rest were jolted and quickly followed after him. They had finally recognized his abilities and began to rely on him. Since they had been protected back on Earth and had not yet been exposed to the reality of the apocalypse, they could only rely on an expert in this strange environment.
The moment Yue Zhong moved, many gazes fell upon him, among them, there was despise, expectation and even ridicule.
To their shock, as Yue Zhong continued ahead, there was no problem even after several hundred meters.
Ma Fan watched Yue Zhong moving uninhibited and quickly called out as his eyes flashed, “Little brother, wait for us!!”
Yue Zhong heard the call but ignored him. In this 2nd World, his only objective was to understand this place better and survive an entire year. Once he completed the mission, the reward of the Heart of Hope would be a treasure. He was not willing to stay behind to protect those wastrels.
Ma Fan saw that Yue Zhong had no intentions of minding him, and quickly waved his hands, signaling the 20 subordinates around him, chasing after Yue Zhong.
The rest of the segregated groups also followed after him.
Yue Zhong traversed extremely cautiously, his danger perception being forced to its limit. Each time he felt a sense of danger from an area, his entire body would go taut, and his hairs would stand on end. He would then route around the region.
Yue Zhong walked for about 4 hours in this godforsaken place, yet, there was nothing. It was plain desolation for miles and miles.
“Watch out!!” Suddenly, he was assaulted by an intense sense of danger, and he immediately barked out loud.
At that moment, a number of human-like savages that were at least 2m-tall, naked, with black-yellowish skin, carrying large wooden bats in their humongous hands rushed towards Yue Zhong and the people behind him. Their faces were contorted and their eyes flashed with madness.
“Fast!!” He stared at them, his eyes narrowing as his heart turned cold. Every single one of them possessed a speed at least 4 times as fast as a person, the fastest was about 8 times a person.
While their speed wasn’t much compared to Yue Zhong, when compared to ordinary people, they were existences even Special Forces of the previous world could not match.
Seeing these human-like creatures suddenly appear, the hundreds of humans who had been transported to this world lost their composure and began to flee in different directions.
Kong Cui Yun watched the approaching herd of giants and her eyes were filled with fear as she screamed out, “Quick run!! Yue Zhong!!”
The rest of the students were also pale, hiding behind his back, unsure of what to do.
“You guys stay here. I’ll go kill them!” Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed with a strange glint, and with a thought, White Bones appeared out of the void, standing in front of the girls. He pulled out his Flame Blade and charged towards the giants.
In a few breaths of time, Yue Zhong had already appeared in front of one of them. He took a closer look at the giant, noting that he was about 70% similar to humans, but his teeth were black and rotting. His bodies were covered with calluses, and there were some large boils. His eyes were filled with a savage glint.
The human-like creature saw Yue Zhong and his eyes flashed, raising the huge wooden bat in his arms high to smash down on Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong had the mind to test the strength of this creature and did not dodge or evade, instead, raising his hands to slap at the wooden bat.
With that single slap, Yue Zhong’s Strength of 13 times a person exploded out, causing the human-like creature to fly back about 5 or 6 meters.
Although he sent the creature flying, Yue Zhong’s eyes darkened, “10 times the Strength of a person. This strange creature is actually 10 times stronger than a person. Too fearsome.”
After all, it seems that this creature that possessed 4 times the speed of a person was one of the lower rank entities in this group. With 10 times the Strength and 4 times the speed, it was the equivalent of a Level 20 Mutant Beast.
After being sent flying with a single slap, the creature became even more furious and charged at Yue Zhong furiously.
6 similar creatures came surrounding Yue Zhong and tried to attack him.
Yue Zhong watched them with a look of ridicule, laughing coldly as he slashed out 7 times quickly.
In a flash, the 7 human-like creatures were immediately sliced in two, fresh blood splattering everywhere.
After dealing with those 7 creatures easily, he charged towards the entire mob all alone. Any creature unfortunate to come across him was directly slashed in two, not a single one of them was Yue Zhong’s match.
Yue Zhong was extremely valiant, but he was just one person, and could not stop the entire group.
The hundred-odd human-like creatures had speed way faster than ordinary humans, and quickly chased up to the fleeing survivors.
One of the creatures leaped and appeared behind a black man. He laughed sadistically as he hammered down on the black man’s head, instantly causing the brains to splatter out.
When the creature killed the black man with a single hit, his eyes glowed with a ferocious light, and grabbed the head and shoved the contents into his mouth.
“Help me!! Help me!!” One golden-haired man ran like mad, screaming as he ran. Behind him were 2 human-like creatures.
One of them grinned evilly, leaping forward and appearing in front of the man. He reached out and wrenched the head of the man, causing his entire spine to be ripped out as well. The creature than punched the head once, before biting down on it and began devouring the contents.
One by one, the savage creatures unleashed pandemonium on the survivors.
Most of the survivors were ordinary people, but there were also a few Evolvers and Enhancers among them.
One blond woman, who was decked in tight clothing and had an explosive figure and beautiful features, pulled out 2 sharp blades and began to dart in and out of the group of savages like a ghost. The blades in her hands danced around as she pierced their heads one by one in lightning-quick fashion.
Another black man pulled out 2 curved blades and charged right for the savage creature in front of him, tearing him apart.
The group of naked men and women were also not simple, joining forces to deal with those creatures, killing them one by one. They were capable, it was just that they had no proper weapons, hence the battle was slightly tougher.
Other than that, 20 other people had skills and abilities and began to slaughter the creatures as well.
Beyond that, the rest of the survivors could only watch helplessly as their doom approached.
As Yue Zhong was slaughtering the creatures, dozens of them managed to rush towards where Kong Cui Yun and the rest was, carrying a murderous aura.
Seeing them approach, it was a frightening scene. Having seen how they consumed human brains, the girls felt their faces drain of color. Kong Cui Yun slumped to the ground as her knees went weak, while a puddle of yellow liquid flowed down her legs. She had evidently lost control of herself.
In the face of death, other than Kong Cui Yun, the rest screamed out and dispersed in different directions. They did not have the courage to face those creatures.
Kong Cui Yun looked at them and screamed out in despair, “Help me!! Xiao Lan, Liu Hong!! Help me!!!”
Liu Hong did not look back, choosing to run without a care. At this critical juncture, she could not afford to care about her friend.
As for Xiao Lan, she stopped in place, turning as her body trembled.
Only to discover White Bones, who had been standing still in front of Kong Cui Yun suddenly raising its hands, and 10 sharp bone spikes shot out, slicing up the human-like creature in front of it.
In barely a second, the dozens of creatures were turned into meat paste by White Bones.
Kong Cui Yun stared in shock as White Bones dealt with the situation easily, and she was filled with shock, “Strong!”
Xiao Lan saw that and quickly shouted to her classmates, “Come back!! All of you!!”
But it was too late, a number of creatures had already caught up and quickly reached the fleeing students, flattening their brains. Xiao Lan watched as Liu Hong’s brains exploded in front of her own eyes, about 10 meters away.
Chapter 516: Soul Enhancement!
Xiao Lan watched as her good friend was killed in a single heartbeat, and her eyes flashed with terror, retreating madly towards White Bones. Now she knew why Yue Zhong wanted them to stay where they were.
It was tougher to protect than to kill, even for White Bones, it could not possibly protect those who chose to flee. It was only by itself.
One other human-like creature panted with ragged breath, its eyes bloodshot. It licked its lips and made its way towards Xiao Lan.
In just a breath, the creature appeared near Xiao Lan, its bat that was covered with brains and blood swinging towards Xiao Lan violently.
“Help!” Despair flashed past her eyes, as her heartbeat quickened. The vessels in her eyes also turned redder, when suddenly, a psychic barrier appeared above her and protected her.
The huge bat slammed down on the barrier, causing it to shatter, but its trajectory was delayed for a short while.
At the next instant, a sharp bone blade slashed out, directly decapitating the creature, as a shower of blood sprayed out, splattering all over Xiao Lan.
Xiao Lan’s eyes were red as she gasped for breath, almost vomiting. However, her desire to live was stronger than the urge to puke, as she mustered all her strength to run towards White Bones.
Along the way, the bone blade continued to soar around, slicing the heads of the many creatures all around.
“Strong!!” Xiao Lan watched it all, her heart filled with shock.
She managed to reach White Bones’ side and stood there quietly as it continued to slaughter the human-like creatures.
The remaining survivors saw how easily White Bones was slaughtering the savages and they tried to make their way closer to it. Of the 20-odd Enhancers that were fighting the savages, 7 of them had already perished, and the rest quickly made their way towards White Bones. Not a single one of them was on par with White Bones.
Yue Zhong slashed out thrice, cleaving 3 savages into halves.
At the same time, as the creatures were slaughtered, a few strands of life energy that ordinary people could not detect were absorbed by the God and Devil imprint on Yue Zhong’s arm.
The moment that life energy was absorbed, they were directed towards his body, strengthening his own life force and soul.
As Yue Zhong continued to slaughter those savages, he suddenly felt enlightened, “As expected, I can only further improve by entering this 2nd World. It doesn’t seem like much, but killing these human-like creatures should be able to provide some benefits.”
On Earth, if Yue Zhong wanted to continue to enhance himself, he would have to kill those Type 4 Mutant Beasts or even Type 5 ones that could annihilate entire countries. Furthermore, killing the Mutant Beasts on Earth strengthened his body, while killing the life forms in this 2nd World enhanced his soul.
Although there was no direct or immediate boost to his strength, he knew that it would definitely benefit him in the long run.
The rest of the survivors watched in shock as Yue Zhong continued to slaughter the savages easily.
Even the blond lady whose figure and looks were astounding, had a strange glint in her eyes while she continued to kill the savages in her own way.
Under the joint efforts of Yue Zhong and White Bones, over half of the 100-odd savages were killed.
When the rest saw that things weren’t going well, they quickly turned and fled.
“Trying to escape? Let me see where you guys are hiding!”
Yue Zhong watched them flee and did not continue to unleash his fury, instead choosing to chase after them. Since these creatures were fleeing, they would not head to those strange regions that caused the survivors to die without any warning.
These savages weren’t a threat to Yue Zhong, only the regions that could cause the strange deaths were truly terrifying.
After passing a hill, Yue Zhong saw a village that had no defenses whatsoever.
The remaining 60 or so savages quickly escaped into the village.
Within seconds, many other naked female savages with breasts hanging out came charging out of the villages. They were really ugly, and their bodies were full of calluses.
Other than them, there were also younger versions of the savages, likely the younger generation, grabbing weapons as they came charging at Yue Zhong as well.
Yue Zhong shot them a cold look, “Seeking death!”
In a flash, he charged right through the village.
The hundreds of savages came pouncing towards Yue Zhong.
The Flame Blade in his hands flashed out, slicing towards those human-like creatures, and they were quickly turned into dismembered body parts.
Not long after Yue Zhong left, White Bones suddenly stirred from its stance, chasing after Yue Zhong with big strides.
“Wait for me!!”
Xiao Lan and Kong Cui Yun called out in anxiety as they followed. Without its protection, they were just ordinary girls without any combat strength. They could be easily killed.
Ma Fun chased after as well, calling out urgently, “Brother!! Your strength is powerful, please stay and protect us!! We have over 100 people here, if you leave, we will all be in danger!”
Initially, there were a few hundred survivors but after the slaughter, a hundred odd were left. If it hadn’t been for Yue Zhong and White Bones, the survivors might have all been wiped out.
“Brother, please stay!!”
“Please, stay and protect us!!”
The sounds of begging began to ring out, as many of them hoped White Bones would protect them. They weren’t willing to join Yue Zhong in fighting those savages.
The weakest of those human-like savages were at least equivalent to Mutant Beasts of Level 20, and these humans were simply not a match for them. The moment White Bones left, they would lose the protection of a powerful expert, and naturally were filled with fear.
With regards to their begging, White Bones ignored them and continued ahead towards Yue Zhong.
Xiao Lan, Kong Cui Yun exchanged looks and chased after. As long as they were beside White Bones, they felt safe.
The rest of the Enhancers also exchanged looks before following. Having undergone battles as well, they were clear that only by following White Bones would they have the greatest chance of survival. Holing up here was waiting for death.
The rest of the survivors saw all these and immediately followed suit.
When they caught up to the hill, they immediately saw Yue Zhong engaged in an all-out slaughter of the savages.
There were at least 200 of the savages, but whenever they were within 5m of Yue Zhong, they would directly be sliced apart by his powerful blade. Everyone was rocked as they watched him. Many of the younger women and teenagers had strange looks in their eyes. In such a precarious place, only a strong person could protect them.
Those creatures were not zombies after all after dozens of them had fallen at Yue Zhong’s hands, the rest saw that they could not do anything to Yue Zhong. They quickly dispersed and tried to flee.
Yue Zhong did not give chase, instead, staying where he was to recuperate. Having killed hundreds of them, his Stamina was also low. In such a dangerous place, he needed to ensure that he was always prepared to deal with unforeseen circumstances.
Xiao Lan came up to Yue Zhong, looking at him reverently, “Yue Zhong, you’re so strong!! From today, you’re my idol!!”
Kong Cui Yun followed White Bones to Yue Zhong’s side. Shame was written all over her pale face because of the words she used earlier, however, she would not give up the chance of survival.
The sexy and beautiful blond lady came up to Yue Zhong with an enticing smile, reaching out with her hand, “Hi! I’m Fuhrana. Strange Chinese boy, I’m pleased to meet you!”
“Hey. I’m Yue Zhong, I’ve stuff to do, so I’ll be going.” He shook her hand lightly and walked into the village.
A few more surviving Enhancers were walking over, but Yue Zhong didn’t want to entertain them. He hoped to discover more clues about this world from this village. It was the most important thing on his mind right now.
There was a strange glint in Fuhrana’s eyes.
As they stepped into the village, Xiao Lan and Kong Cui Yun immediately turned pale and began to throw up. Of the majority of the survivors that followed behind, many reacted the same way.
There was a putrid stench of rotting in the village, outside the various huts, hung human heads, legs, hearts and all sorts of organs. The victims were men and women of all ages, and every single one of their expressions had been fear at the time of death. It was practically a scene out of hell.
Chapter 517: Radiation Detector!
“These damn beasts!!” Kong Cui Yun cursed out loud, before walking over to Yue Zhong and gripping his shirt tightly. She had seen the head of a girl not more than 12 hanging outside a hut. That horrific and tragic sight had almost driven her insane. In this hellhole, if she didn’t grab Yue Zhong’s shirt, she didn’t have the courage to linger.
Su Lan observed Yue Zhong carefully, noting that he was walking through this godforsaken place without any expression, as she thought to herself, “Just what had he gone through for his heart to be numb to this extent?”
Yue Zhong had seen his fair share of depravity and cruelty, especially in Country A, he had seen the natives not even sparing kids. It was not easy to shake the resolute will and heart of his.
Even so, no matter how strong his mental fortitude, seeing the state of the savages’ victims, his fury boiled, his killing intent billowing.
He pushed open the door of one residence, and was assaulted by a strong rotting stench, he looked around carefully, noticing a bed, a table, some chairs and other furniture similar to a human’s residence, just bigger, and smellier.
Yue Zhong looked around for awhile, his eyes brightening, as he noticed an electronic device the size of a palm on a table. He quickly grabbed it.
“Radiation Detector. Able to discern radiation levels of 1 to 9.”
Yue Zhong read the notification that appeared as he held the device.
He felt his heart sink, “Radiation? Could it be that this world has places of radiation? Or is it that there are multiple regions of radiation located everywhere?”
Radiation was a terrifying thing. If there was long-term exposure, humans could develop cancer.
After using the nuclear missile to blast the evolved intelligent zombies, a hundred miles around it had immediately been cordoned off and labeled as prohibited. It was unlikely to be inhabited in the next 100 years.
It was because of the hazardous effect of radiation that Yue Zhong still kept 14 nuclear missiles, not utilizing them against the zombies.
Yue Zhong pressed a button, causing the radiation device to light up, as a line of characters appeared, “The region has a radiation level of 3. It is considered mildly polluted, and administering the Level 3 Anti-Radiation drug will allow one to traverse smoothly in this region.
Yue Zhong looked at the reading and his expression turned ugly, “Mildly polluted, that means that the region is already contaminated? Shit, aren’t we exposed right now? If we don’t administer the drug, it’ll be dangerous. Oh right, those mysterious deaths, could it be those regions were highly polluted? The radiation could cause someone to die so instantaneously?”
Yue Zhong felt confident in his abilities in dealing with even a Type 4 Mutant Beast. However, there was radiation everywhere, he could not possibly fight against that. The Level 5 Defense Vest on him had the ability to defend against radiation, but his head had no protection. That was to say, while his body could be immune to it, his head was still vulnerable.
He continued searching around the room, discovering a bag of black wheat and some dozens of bones, a sight that could cause anyone to throw up.
After leaving the room, Yue Zhong discovered the majority of the survivors hiding outside the village. Many of them had caught sight of the gruesome sight of the corpses and began vomiting. Few dared to venture in.
The Enhancers were different, half of them following Yue Zhong in checking out the houses of the savages, scavenging for usable resources.
After a while, the braver ones seemed to have understood and began to swarm into the village.
Other than Xiao Lan and a few others who had been protected throughout the apocalypse, the rest had experienced their own hardships. Rations and resources were important and they knew that. In such a place where the conditions were harsh, the importance of food could not be greater.
Yue Zhong grabbed the bag of black wheat and threw it to Kong Cui Yun, “Take this!!”
Immediately, she squealed in disgust, “What is this? It stinks!! It’s dirty!! I’m not holding this!”
Yue Zhong immediately shot her a cold look.
When she saw that, Kong Cui Yun felt her body go cold. While she was proud and had her temper, she was not stupid. She was clear that the moment Yue Zhong abandoned her and Xiao Lan, the both of them would die in this forsaken place. Especially those naked men, they would not let them go either.
The corners of her mouth tightened, as she fought back some tears and grabbed the bag tightly,
Yue Zhong turned around, not minding her as he looked to his left and right, directly entering the largest room.
Xiao Lan’s eyes flashed with a glint as she offered, “Cui Yun, let me help you!”
Kong Cui Yun shook her head resolutely, “No need! I’ll do it myself.”
Xiao Lan looked at her and didn’t say anything more, instead, she entered the room right after Yue Zhong.
As Yue Zhong stepped in, he immediately saw dozens of assault rifles and sniper rifles hanging everywhere in the room, while the bullets were all thrown in a stone basin.
Yue Zhong took those rifles and assessed them carefully, “These guns are ordinary, doesn’t seem like they’re more advanced than the technology on Earth. Seems a little old.”
Xiao Lan entered the room and was immediately attracted to the guns. She hesitated a while before grabbing a bag of black wheat that she saw.
After the close shave with death, she felt more clear about the importance of staying alive. She didn’t want to be useless and abandoned by Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong casually placed a rifle down, before looking around carefully. Soon after, his eyes brightened, as he picked up another device.
“Water source detector. It can detect if the body of water is polluted by radiation on a scale of 1 to 9.”
Yue Zhong held up the device and thought sullenly, “Water source detector. Since such an item has been created, it’s likely that this world is already radiated everywhere.”
He searched carefully, but did not discover anything else of use, and thus threw everything to White Bones to carry.
These firearms and ammunition could be of help to Yue Zhong. Although he wasn’t reliant on weapons, he would have to expend a lot more with these weapons. Thus, having them could help reduce his own burdens.
As he left the room, he discovered many survivors already in the midst of scavenging. He sighed and walked out. He didn’t want to stay a moment longer than necessary in this hellhole.
When he left the village, the rest of the survivors also began to follow suit.
Yue Zhong looked to his left and right, observing a little while before proceeding west. He knew they were already currently in an environment of radiation. Every second spent out here could cause them to undergo mutation, or develop some illness.
Ma Fun saw Yue Zhong leaving and his face fell, quickly calling out, “Wait!! Wait a moment!! Brother Yue Zhong, wait!!”
Without Yue Zhong’s protection, these people would find it hard to survive in this world. Ma Fun was extremely clear about this. He hoped Yue Zhong would stay behind to protect them all.
Yue Zhong glanced back but continued after ignoring him.
Xiao Lan and Kong Cui Yun followed Yue Zhong tightly.
Fuhrana and the rest of the Enhancers exchanged looks and quickly followed him as well.
Ma Fun gritted his teeth and brought the survivors out, following Yue Zhong. His initial wish of gathering the survivors to lord over them had long since been dashed.
With the radiation detector, Yue Zhong was slightly more relaxed, using it to determine the level of radiation in the region. Any place with a radiation level of 4 was considered mid-polluted, Yue Zhong would avoid these places immediately.
They continued walking for an entire day before Yue Zhong decided to stop and set up camp.
Seeing that he stopped, everyone heaved a sigh of relief.
With a flip of his hands, a bottle of mineral water appeared in his hands. He drank it down in one shot.
After walking an entire day, everyone felt parched. Seeing how cleanly Yue Zhong drank, everyone gulped, their eyes flashing with envy.
Xiao Lan hesitated a while before coming up to Yue Zhong and pleaded, “I’m thirsty, can I get some water please?”
Yue Zhong looked at her, frowning a little before he pulled out a bottle and poured out a cap for her.
Xiao Lan’s eyes flashed with disappointment, but she still thanked him, “Thank you!”
Kong Cui Yun could not help but mutter when she saw that, “Miser!”
Ma Fun came up to Yue Zhong, saying, “Brother! I’m Ma Fun! I know you have water on you. Now, everybody’s thirsty, please spare some for everyone. In these difficult times, we should work together and overcome this together!”
Chapter 518: Precious Water!
Yue Zhong eyed Ma Fun coldly, and scoffed, “The water I have, was what I brought with me, what does it have to do with you! If you want a drink, go find it yourself. Don’t bother me! Scram!”
When Yue Zhong saw the Water Source Detector, he knew that clean water free from any contamination was extremely precious. He did indeed have a large amount of water in his storage ring, it was enough to last him half a year. However, if he were to give it out to these hundreds of survivors, it would be gone in a few days.
He did not fancy himself as a saint, nor did he intend to sacrifice himself for the sake of the rest.
“You’re too selfish…” Ma Fun instantly blew his top, intending to curse out, when a sharp bone spike extended right to his forehead in a flash. Seeing the flash in White Bones’ demonic eyes, Ma Fun swallowed his words with difficulty and stumbled back.
The strong preyed on the weak, this was the law of the jungle now. Ma Fun had seen other Evolvers killing people casually. He did not want to become a ghost under Yue Zhong’s blade.
After being barked at, Ma Fun slunk back to his corner with a dark expression.
Kong Cui Yun saw Ma Fun going away and came up to him, looking at him with her beautiful eyes, “Please give me a mouthful of water!”
Yue Zhong looked at her and poured her half a bottle cap.
Kong Cui Yun received it and thanked him profusely, “Thank you!!”
She could tell that food and water was extremely important. Yue Zhong was willing to give them, thus they could live.
She took the half-cup of water and noticed many gazes on her, which were filled with envy, jealousy, hope and other sorts of emotions. She felt a certain rush of being above the rest.
Yue Zhong took out a bread, tearing open the packaging and flung it away casually.
Before it landed, Xiao Lan immediately reached out to grab the packaging, extending her tongue to lick the inside of the packaging.
Kong Cui Yun was shocked when she saw this before she suddenly understood. They were in a much harsher environment than Earth, every bit of food was precious.
Yue Zhong’s eyes suddenly brightened, as he finished the bread in two or three bites, and ran towards the North.
Not long after, Yue Zhong came across a flowing water body. His heart was filled with joy. With water, there was a chance of life. With life, there was potential food as well.
Yue Zhong looked at the stream, his eyes narrowing. He did not see any signs of life in the stream.
Suspicious, he took out the Water Detector and stuck it in the water. Immediately, a sound of warning came from the device, “Warning! Warning! Water radiation is Level 7, considered highly polluted! Do not consume, as it will cause your body to either mutate or breakdown!”
Yue Zhong’s face turned as he recoiled in horror, as though dodging a snake. It was the first water source that he came across, but even then, it was undrinkable. This proved that there was nothing in the vicinity fit for human consumption.
If there was anything humans could eat, it would be the blackened wheat or human flesh itself.
One Enhancer who had been following closely behind immediate rushed up to the stream when he saw it. There was a look of frenzy and excitement in his eyes as he shouted, “Water!! There’s water!! This is great!!! Hahaha!! There’s water!”
Yue Zhong looked at him and warned him, “Careful, the radiation level of the water is at Level 7.”
“Level 7 Radiation?” The Enhancer looked at Yue Zhong suspiciously, before laughing coldly, and cupped the water as he began to drink huge gulps of it. He broke into a wide grin, “Such sweet water!! So clear, and so sweet!!”
He was drunk with happiness and shot Yue Zhong a challenging smile.
Yue Zhong could not be bothered and left.
Since he was recognized as the strongest among them, his every action attracted everyone’s attention. They discovered the stream, and everyone charged over immediately. Having walked the entire day, they were truly thirsty. In order to start a fire and cook, they would need some water as well.
Yue Zhong looked at the frenzied people and spoke indifferently, “This stream is already polluted with a radiation level of 7. There might be harm in consuming it.”
Hearing his words, everyone began to hesitate.
The Enhancer who had drunk a few mouthfuls retorted, “Don’t believe him! I’ve drunk so much and am still fine! He just wants to control everyone through his water supply.”
Hearing his words, some of them threw suspicious gazes on Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong could not be bothered about them and walked towards an area he had selected for his campsite. With a wave of his hands, he pulled out a tent and erect it. He had already reminded them out of basic courtesy and it was his bottom line already. What they chose to do was not up to him.
Fuhrana came up to Yue Zhong when she saw him set up the tent, thinking to herself, “Spatial treasure, or spatial skill? This Yue Zhong is truly special.”
Xiao Lan and Kong Cui Yun watched as the beautiful and alluring Fuhrana came closer, and they felt a sense of threat as they shot gazes of enmity at her.
She walked up to Yue Zhong and shot him a dazzling smile, “Hey! Yue Zhong, can I get a cup of water please?”
Yue Zhong immediately rejected her, “Sorry, no can do! Water is too precious here. I can’t just give it for free. If you want it, you need to offer the right price.”
Yue Zhong had walked an entire day and discovered this stream, only to find that it was already contaminated. This proved the scarcity and preciousness of water here. If it was on earth, he could easily hand over some tonnes of water. However, he could not afford to do so here.
Fuhrana’s maintained her smile, although she could not believe there was someone who actually turned her down.
She adjusted her emotions and asked, “Is the water in the stream really contaminated?”
Yue Zhong replied mildly, “If you don’t believe me, go ahead. I’m not stopping you.”
Fuhrana retracted her gaze and asked, “In that case, Yue Zhong, what’s the price you want me to pay for me to have some water?”
Yue Zhong stared at her straight and gave her a harsh condition, “Slave! As long as you swear to become my slave, and serve me with all your heart, not disobeying my order, I will give you ample food and water. Otherwise, we have nothing to do with each other, why should I help you? Of course, if you become my slave, as long as you disobey any command, I’ll kill you at the first moment I can.”
When Fuhrana heard this, she struggled to maintain her smile as she backed away, “Slave? In that case, forget it.”
Yue Zhong saw her leave and chuckled coldly, continuing to erect his tent. He had thrown out such a condition in order to deter people from asking him to share.
Yue Zhong was still unsure about this world, and food and water was already so precious. He could not possible waste resources on these people. He still had to last an entire year out here.
It was precisely because of this that Yue Zhong had not offered to round the rest of the survivors up and take up the mantle of being a leader. Once he did that, he was responsible for their lives and deaths and had to share his precious resources with them. Before finding a potable water source, he would not try to establish his faction yet.
On the other side, when Xiao Lan heard Yue Zhong’s words, her heart skipped a beat, and her face showed that she was in a dilemma. However, she quickly came to a decision.
Yue Zhong’s warning did not really prevent the survivors from drinking the water, as many went to quench their thirst with it and use it to prepare the blackened wheat from the village.
Once the wheat was cooked, an ugly scene soon appeared. Those who had gone into the village to obtain the wheat began to eat and drink, not sharing with the rest of the survivors. They were clear on the shortage of resources and they would naturally not share what they had with others. It was basic human nature.
At this time, in front of Ma Fun, there was a huge cauldron of black wheat and the streamwater cooking. A few of the burly men used smelly bowls to enjoy the soup.
A few women and children looked pitifully at the soup, gulping their saliva, looking at Ma Fun pitifully.
One small and skinny boy went up to Ma Fun and begged, “Leader!! I’m hungry! Let me have some!”
Ma Fun looked at the boy and his eyes flashed with irritation, “No! This wheat was found through our efforts. You didn’t work and want to enjoy the fruits of our labor? Then what about our brothers who had worked hard? If you want to eat, you need to put in the effort! Go to sleep first, if you sleep, you won’t feel your hunger.”
Since the kid wasn’t of much use, Ma Fun did not place importance on him as well, in front of the weak, he revealed his own selfish nature.
The rest of the smaller groups were the same. The weak ones were left out, and only the strong could enjoy the food. Some women used their own bodies in exchange for food. Sounds of moaning came from the different camps.
Chapter 519: Mutation!
Yue Zhong’s warning was effective for some of the survivors. Although these people and Enhancers were hungry and thirsty, they gritted their teeth and bear with it, not eating the black wheat nor water.
Yue Zhong had discovered a few scientific equipment from the village, likewise, some of them had found the same. As long as one was not stupid, they could guess that this world was already irradiated.
Kong Cui Yun and Xiao Lan both looked to the camps and saw the various women selling their bodies in exchange for a little food, and their expressions turned to one of fear. Before the apocalypse, it would be an act of shame, but now, it was normal.
One of the naked men who had some strength was already dressed in some clothes. He came up to the both of them and laughed lewdly, “Hey! Girls! Come, let’s fuck! This bowl of black wheat porridge will be yours.”
Xiao Lan looked at it, swallowing her saliva before coldly saying, “Pei! Scram the fuck away for your grandaunt!”
The naked man’s eyes flashed with fury as he took a huge step towards Xiao Lan, “Little bitch, you should be honored your granddaddy I set my sights on you. Those bitches over there fought to accompany me. You better fucking give me face!”
Xiao Lan looked at the naked man with a look of fear, and she retreated a few steps involuntarily.
Just after he took a few steps forward, a sharp bone spike shot out explosively, stopping right at his throat.
The man was so frightened that he broke out in cold sweat as he backed up immediately, “Sorry! Sorry!! I’ll leave now! I’ll leave now!!”
The moment he backed away, the bone spike returned to White Bones.
As long as he did not overstep his boundaries to threaten Yue Zhong’s safety, White Bones would not act out.
The man looked at Xiao Lan and snorted coldly, “Little bitch, seems like Yue Zhong doesn’t seem to care much about you girls. Let’s see when you beg me. At that time, I’ll make sure you’ll regret today!”
Seeing that he had left, Xiao Lan’s eyes looked down in sadness. She was truly tired and thirsty. Yue Zhong had just given them a little water and protected their lives, but beyond that, it didn’t seem that he valued them much. They had no ability to find food or water for themselves, if they continued like that, they would likely beg that man out of desperation.
“Damn it!!” Kong Cui Yun watched the man leave, as her eyes flashed with a resolute look, and she went straight into Yue Zhong’s tent.
Yue Zhong was laying there drinking milk and consuming some Type 2 Mutant Beast meat as he read a book quietly. The moment Kong Cui Yun barged in, his brows furrowed as he asked, “It’s you?”
Kong Cui Yun looked at the food and milk beside him and her eyes flashed with greed. She turned to stare at Yue Zhong, “Earlier, you said that as long as one agrees to be your slave, and not disobey your orders, you will give food and water, right?”
Yue Zhong stared back at her and replied, “That’s right! However, let me make it clear first. If you become my slave, whatever I ask you to do in the future, some might even endanger your life. Are you willing?”
She chuckled in self-deprecation, “What choice do I have? Without your protection, I would already be in a state worse than an animal. Within a week, I’ll be dead for sure. I promise to be your slave.”
After that, her face flushed red as she began to undress, revealing her youthful and lithe body.
When she was fully naked, she dove into his covers, begging, “I want something to eat and drink.”
Within a day, Kong Cui Yun had already lost some of her arrogance and princess-attitude.
Yue Zhong felt her smooth skin under his fingertips, and he felt his heartbeat quicken. After a moment of hesitation, he passed her the milk and Type 2 Beast meat to her.
In this strange world, Yue Zhong did not know if he would be able to see other humans. If this world was left with only those savages or other humans who would not accept him, then his companions would these survivors that arrived together with him. He had no way of saving hundreds of them, but one or two were still within his capability.
Kong Cui Yun accepted the food in happiness and gobbled them up.
She finished the food, cleaning her lips before looking towards Yue Zhong coyly, “Do you want to do it with me?”
“No need! Go to sleep, we have to be on our way tomorrow.” Yue Zhong turned off the light and immediately went to sleep.
In response, Kong Cui Yun felt a sense of relief, yet disappointment at the same time, before hugging Yue Zhong’s arm to sleep.
The 2nd day, Yue Zhong and Kong Cui Yun ate breakfast, before leaving the tent.
Xiao Lan was curled up, her face pale and cold. She looked at Kong Cui Yun who walked out with Yue Zhong with a look of jealousy and contempt.
Kong Cui Yun looked at Xiao Lan and spoke with a lofty tone, handing her some bread and water, “Lan Lan, you must be hungry. Take this.”
Xiao Lan looked at the bread and water, her eyes filled with a complicated gaze as she thanked her, “Thank you, Cui Yun!”
Xiao Lan was extremely clear on the value of the bread and water, it required an entire night with a woman to exchange.
At this time, there were screams of agony and moaning from the group of survivors.
Yue Zhong immediately charged towards their location.
He discovered a number of survivors kneeling on the group spewing out blood, thrashing about on the ground. They were struggling painfully, and there seemed to be about 90 of them.
The remaining 30 or so looked at them helplessly, their hearts cold.
Yue Zhong came up to Fuhrana and asked solemnly, “What’s going on?’
Her lips were slightly chapped and her expression ugly, “These people were those who drank from the stream. Seems like the water is truly radiated.”
Yesterday, Yue Zhong had already given his warning, however, due to the immense thirst, those people had thrown all caution to the wind and drank from the stream. The effects were showing right now.
Yue Zhong frowned and looked at the survivors carefully. He noticed one particular survivor who was on the ground and his eyes narrowed.
He saw that as the survivor spat out blood, his forehead began to split open, revealing rows of sharp teeth, looking like a freakish monster.
Yue Zhong continued to look at the rest of the survivors, noting another one growing a scorpion tail, while another had multiple boils on his face. One had sharp claws growing out of his right hand.
Yue Zhong looked at the mutating survivors and frowned, “Is this mutation? Under the radiation, humans could actually become like this. Truly astounding. Or maybe there’s something else in the world that causes an effect?”
“Save me!!! Save me!!” At this time, Ma Fun saw Yue Zhong and came crawling towards him while still throwing up blood. However, after a few meters, he spat out a large mouthful and died with blood running down his orifices.
Due to the differences in body constitution, some survivors quickly died, while others were still struggling violently.
Yue Zhong stayed a while before turning and walking away silently. The most important thing was to find a way to communicate with the inhabitants of this world. Otherwise, if they stayed on too long, there was no telling what would happen. He had enough water and food on himself, but these 30 other survivors didn’t.
Fuhrana and the rest of the survivors picked up the items of the deceased and followed Yue Zhong.
Kong Cui Yun swept her gaze over the survivors and felt shocked. In just another day, another hundred had died. This world was terrifying, beyond her imagination. She turned to look at Yue Zhong and felt her emotions calm down. As long as there was him to protect her, she believed she could live on.
Everyone followed Yue Zhong quietly.
In front, there was only a wide, vast area of nothing. Not a single shred of green to be seen, while bullet shrapnel was scattered everywhere.
The survivors following behind Yue Zhong began to get more irritable, their eyes flashing with red. They had gone an entire day without water, and walking for so long was causing them to dehydrate, making the thirst even more unbearable.
They finally could not take it anymore and as Yue Zhong was resting, the 33 survivors began to surround Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong looked at the survivors who obviously had bad intentions and asked coldly, “What do you think you’re doing?”
After a moment of hesitation, the naked man from last night stepped out, looking at Yue Zhong darkly, “Yue Zhong, I know you still have water with you. We want a bottle of clean water. As long as you can give us a bottle and let us live, that’s fine.”
Yue Zhong’s face turned ugly, “No. I have water, but that’s mine. I need to traverse this place for god knows how long. I won’t give water to you. If you want a drink, go find it yourself!”
The face of the man became even darker, his voice becoming louder, “Don’t force us!! We want to live on!! If we’re pushed to a corner, we can ignore everything and go crazy!!”
The other 33 survivors also stepped forwards with ugly expressions.
At this time, White Bones stepped forward quietly, 10 sharp bone spikes shooting out from its body, pointing at the survivors.
Seeing that, the survivors had a change of expression. A single Yue Zhong could kill them all, adding on White Bones, they were sure to be killed without a burial ground.
Chapter 520: The Price of Water!
At this time, Fuhrana’s eyes flashed as she pointed at a distance, “Don’t be rash!! Look!! What’s that?”
Everyone turned to face the direction, only to see a group of humans looking like ants in the distance.
The survivors looked at those humans and their eyes brightened as they rushed towards them.
As long as there were humans, there was bound to be a water source. They could live if they could find the water source. They weren’t fearful towards ordinary humans as well.
Yue Zhong looked at them and turned to speak to Xiao Lan and Kong Cui Yun, “You guys stay here.”
After that, he followed the rest of the survivors from Earth and ran after the group of humans.
Just when they managed to chase up to about 100m from the group, the sounds of gunfire rang out.
Due to the gunshots, a number of survivors had their heads penetrated by the bullets, and their corpses slumped to the ground.
The sounds of gunfire wasn’t that dense, but every single shot spelled the death of a survivor.
Under the suppressing fire, the survivors immediately got down on the ground and rolled for cover.
As Yue Zhong made his way there, he could feel a terrifying gaze fixed on him, “What powerful sniping skills, there must be a sniper!”
Yue Zhong had fought plenty of expert snipers and could feel the threat of that gaze fixed on him.
He called out to the group of humans in a resounding voice, “I have no ill intentions! I hope to speak to your leader!”
A bullet whizzed through the air in response to Yue Zhong’s statement.
“Damn it!” With a flash of his body, he dodged the bullet easily, but his eyes turned cold. He was trying hard to be nice, but these people were being unreasonable. His killing intent immediately billowed out.
Without any hesitation, Yue Zhong pulled out an assault rifle and fired a single shot into the distance. The sniper who fired at Yue Zhong had his head immediately blasted apart.
Since Yue Zhong had started killing, he did not hold back anymore. He quickly dashed forwards, firing a number of shots, causing their own warriors to fall.
Those people could feel the threat of Yue Zhong and began to fire back madly.
Yue Zhong himself turned into a beam of light that charged right through the midst of humans, and with a sweeping fire, he killed those soldiers wielding guns.
Once those gun-totting soldiers were killed, dozens of males came charging at Yue Zhong with melee weapons, their expressions murderous.
Yue Zhong looked at the men, his eyes flashing with cold killing intent and he swept out mercilessly, firing his gun.
In the dense barrage of bullets, the men who were charging over had their heads riddled with bullets and died.
Yue Zhong wiped out the attackers easily and shot a look towards the rest of the humans.
He discovered the group consisted both males and females, although their hair color was interesting. Some were blue, some gold, some silver, some black. Their skins were white, yellow and black. It was all mixed and there were about a hundred of them. They were looking back at him with fear.
One blond old man had a frightened look as he came up to Yue Zhong, kneeling down before speaking in some strange form of Chinese, “Glorious Divine Warrior, I’m Eiphen, the Patriach of this group of vagabonds! We had attacked you and your subordinates without knowing better, please pardon our offence!”
With a swoosh, the hundred-off humans kneeled down and pleaded, “Glorious Divine Warrior, please pardon our offence!!”
Yue Zhong quickly came to an understanding when he heard them, “Divine Warrior? What’s that? The term for the experts in this world?”
The rest of the survivors came over, and saw the group of soldiers and strange humans kneeling in front of Yue Zhong. Their hearts were filled with shock.
The naked man saw the corpses around Yue Zhong and his heart instantly turned cold, “Strong! Luckily we didn’t do anything earlier, otherwise, I would be dead!”
Fuhrana looked at Yue Zhong, her gaze complicated, “He’s truly strong!!”
Yue Zhong glanced at Eiphen, saying, “Water, food!!”
The blond old man looked towards a beautiful girl of about 11 or 12 beside him with a fully developed body and said, “Dina, go get some water and food for the Divine Warrior!”
The blond girl quickly burrowed into a tent, carefully taking out a bowl of clear water and a biscuit mixed with some strange substance in front of Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong looked at the water and brought out the Water Detector to stick it in.
“Warning! The water radiation level is 4, and is classified as moderately polluted. If consumed in large quantities, there is the risk of mutation.”
Yue Zhong shot Eiphen a look with killing intent, coldly barking, “This is moderately polluted, and you dare offer this to me?! Are you sick of living?”
Eiphen immediately got down on his knees and kowtowed while trembling profusely, “Esteemed Divine Warrior! The best water that we can find is already at Level 4 radiation. Anything that is Level 3 and below can only be obtained from Red Rock City. This is our best quality that we can provide!”
“Level 4 radiation is already the best?!” Yue Zhong stared at the water, his expression falling. He had thought to obtain some ration and water from these vagabonds. Seemed like his plan had to be changed.
Yue Zhong continued asking Eipher, “Do you know how to get to Red Rock City?”
Eiphen replied fearfully, “I know! Follow this road all the way west, and you will reach it. However, it will take about 6 days.”
Yue Zhong looked at him and ordered,” Bring me there!”
Eiphen returned his look with respect, “Yes! Esteemed Divine Warrior!!”
Just then, Fuhrana asked Eiphen, “Can the water with Level 4 radiation be drunk?”
The 33 survivors also came closer, looking on silently.
Eiphen replied respectfully, “Can! However, there’s a risk of danger to the body. In truth, other than pure, clean water, all other water sources have some form of radiation, which is harmful to the human’s body. It’s just that the degree of danger varies. Grade 3 and below and usually least harmful to the body, while Grade 4 and above can cause some problems and chances of mutation is higher. Grade 7 radiation is basically poison to the human body, once a person drinks it, they will likely die or mutate.”
Eiphen continued explaining, “The lower the grade of radiation, the higher the price. In Red Rock City, a cup of Grade 3 radiation will cause 1 Eagle Yuan. A cup of Grade 2 radiation costs 10 Eagle Yuan, a cup of Grade 1 radiation costs 100 Eagle Yuan and pure, clean water costs 1,000 Eagle Yuan.
Yue Zhong piped in, “How much can a rifle exchange for in Red Rock City?”
“An ordinary assault rifle goes for 200 Eagle Yuan in the city, while a 7.62mm rifle bullet goes for 10 Eagle Yuan each.”
Yue Zhong took mental note of his own assets, together with the dozens of rifles and hundreds rounds that he obtained from the village of the savages. Exchanging all would just give him a few thousand Eagle Yuan. A few cups of clean water would wipe his pocket clean. Now he knew the price of clean water here.
When Fuhrana and the other survivors heard Eiphen’s words, their faces turned incredibly ugly. They had no currency of this world, so even if they managed to get into Red Rock City, they would not be able to afford a single cup of water.
One of the survivors had a grave look on his face as he grabbed a bowl of the water and drank it, “I can’t give a shit anymore!! If I get contaminated by the radiation, so be it! If these people can drink, don’t tell me we can’t?!”
The rest also revealed savage expressions, and barked out, “Water!! Bring us more water!!”
Bowls after bowls were brought in front of the survivors, other than a few, the rest all began to drink up. They had gone nearly 2 days without water, and their throats were almost beyond parched. They really couldn’t care about the radiation anymore.
Eiphen spoke up respectfully, “The sky is getting dark, please join us to rest for the night.”
Yue Zhong nodded, “Ok!”
These vagabonds quickly set up camp, erecting simple tents. They also begun to take out their cauldrons as a group of women filled them up with water, and threw some wheat and biscuits in.
Suddenly, the faces of the survivors changed.
They saw a few men dragging out a human corpse from one of the vehicles, chopping it up, before throwing it into the woks and cooked them.
Seeing such a scene, Kong Cui Yun could not help but turn pale, Xiao Lan covered her mouth, suppressing her urge to puke.
Yue Zhong’s countenance wasn’t any better. Although he had killed countless of lives, the one thing he hated the most was cannibalism. As long as he saw it, he would kill the offenders without mercy.
Eiphen was a smart person, and when he saw Yue Zhong’s expression, he immediately got on his knees in fright, saying, “Esteemed Divine Warrior. We didn’t kill this person. It was a corpse that we exchanged for with another vagabond tribe. We didn’t commit murder.”
Yue Zhong’s face was dark as he asked, “Do you all consume this?”
Eiphen’s eyes flashed with pain, “Esteemed Divine Warrior, we have no choice. There is little food out here in the wilderness, if we don’t consume this, we can’t live on. Us vagabonds are just slightly better off than those Savages, but even so, we’re still lowly existences on this plane. In order to live, we have to eat anything.”
