God and Devil World - Chapter 751-760
Chapter 751: Negotiations!
Li Fei San laid in the embrace of the Korean lady, crying out loudly, “It’s him! It’s him! He’s the one who hit me. He’s a Chinese, not Korean. He doesn’t have an invitation and just barged into the party. Ni Ni, you must stand up for me!”
The commotion managed to attract the people around. Those who had been just observing came closer, and upon hearing that Yue Zhong was a Chinese, their eyes were filled with disdain and enmity.
The Korean lady, Kim Da Ni, turned around immediately and stared daggers at Yue Zhong and Jung Ri Soo. She shrieked out, “So it was you two shameless Chinese?! Security, capture the both of them! Throw them in jail!”
“Damn Chinese, as expected, their bearing is so lowly, I wonder how they sneaked in.”
In the room, everyone looked on with disdain, pointing and muttering at Yue Zhong.
Under their gazes filled with animosity, Jun Ri Soo started to feel nervous and scared, hiding behind Yue Zhong’s back like a cat. She had never even been to such an event before, let alone being a troublemaker.
“What’s going on?” At this moment, Lee Young Joon came over with 8 security guards.
Kim Da Ni came up to him, her eyes shooting suggestive glances, as she spoke coyly, “Young Joon-oppa, right on time. This Chinese sneaked into our party and hit someone. Quick, capture him and send him over to the Revival Assembly.”
Yue Zhong turned to Lee Young Joon and laughed coldly, “Lee Young Jun, is this how the United Republic of Korea welcome guests?”
Lee Young Joon took a look and saw that it was Yue Zhong. His face fell and did not even pay attention to Kim Da Ni, quickly running over to Yue Zhong, putting on a fawning expression, “Sir Yue Zhong, I was just looking for you. So you were here. I deeply apologize for the lack of welcome, and I beg your forgiveness.”
“Why is it like this?” Seeing this, Kim Da Ni’s countenance turned extremely pale. Lee Young Joon was the trusted aide of the President of the United Republic of Korea, Chu Joon Ho, and in the region, his name was not without weight.
Kim Da Ni had also gotten close to him, that was how she threw her weight about in the faction and did whatever she liked. She did not expect that this high and mighty Lee Young Joon would actually be so subservient to this Chinese man.
When everyone saw this, their faces fell, turning silent immediately. Those who had been sarcastic with their remarks turned pale.
Things were different now compared to peace times. If they were to offend some big character accidentally, it was possible to become a corpse the next day. This was, after all, a cruel world.
Yue Zhong pointed at both Kim Da Ni and Li Fei San, speaking coldly, “These 2 are an eyesore. I don’t wish to see them anymore.”
Lee Young Joon bowed once more, “My apologies. Due to my oversight, I’ve caused you distress. I promise you that you will not see those 2 again.”
He then turned to stare at the 2, his humility gone in a flash, replaced with an icy sternness, “Drag the two of them away into the Dead Prison.”
4 experts swiftly stepped up to restrain the 2 of them, dragging them out.
Li Fei San was frightened at this point, wetting his pants, and he cried out miserably, “No! Please! NO! Don’t send me there! Yue Zhong, please, I’m begging you!! It was my fault. Save me!! Don’t let them send me there!! On account that we’re schoolmates, please!!”
Yue Zhong shot him a disdainful look, “Li Fei San, if you weren’t a rapist, I would have still spared your dog life. However, your nature never changed, you despicable scumbag. I think your death will do the world some good.”
When Li Fei San had flown abroad to study, one of the main reasons was that he had raped his own teacher. Although his family had used their money to keep the matter under wraps, they had no choice but to send this little devil overseas to evade further trouble.
Li Fei San’s nose and eyes were streaming as he begged, “I know I’m wrong!! Please give me a chance!! Please!!”
Yue Zhong shot Lee Young Joon a cold glance, “It’s getting really noisy!”
Lee Young Joon then motioned at 2 experts, and one of them directly sent a fist towards the mouth of Li Fei San, making it bloody, before stuffing him with a piece of cloth. They then proceeded to drag him away.
“This way please.” After all these, Lee Young Joon wore a smile and led Yue Zhong towards another box some distance away.
After entering the box, there were 4 extremely beautiful ladies with exquisite looks and charm seated on a sofa, with a young man sitting further back.
Jung Ri Soo caught sight of the 4 ladies and became excited, “Jeon Yoon Ah, Kim Bo Ah, Shin Ji Hyeon, So Gyo Hye!! Oh my goodness, I’m so excited!! Uncle, these are the ultimate celebrities of our Korea! This is too cool!!”
Lee Young Joon’s face had a warm smile as he introduced, “Sir Yue Zhong, these 4 are indeed our top celebrities of Korea. They have heard of your name and hope to become your women. We beseech you to grant them this wish, and keep them by your side.”
One of them had long, chestnut hair, her figure tall and slender. When she smiled, it was extremely captivating. She came over and said, “Hello, Yue Zhong, I’m Jeon Yoon Ah.”
Another one with an oval-shaped face and voluptuous body came and smiled, “Hi, I’m Kim Bo Ah!”
The third one looked slightly rebellious giggled, “Hi! I’m Shin Ji Hyeon!”
The last one was a silent but elegant beauty, who smiled slightly, “Hello, Sir Yue Zhong, I’m So Gyo Hye.”
After the 4 idols introduced themselves, they brought with them a charm as they tried to compete and showcased their charms.
Even Jung Ri Soo, who had been excited when she saw them, became extremely depressed, and pounced into his embrace, hugging him tightly.
At this time, Chu Joon Ho stood up, smiling with charm as he welcomed Yue Zhong, “Yue Zhong, how do you do. I’m Chu Joon Ho, the President of the United Republic of Korea, I’m honored to finally meet you.”
Yue Zhong smiled back, sitting on the sofa, “How do you do. I’m Yue Zhong.”
Chu Joon Ho tried to suss him out, “Yue Zhong, you should have just arrived in Korea right? I’ve never heard of you before.”
Yue Zhong spoke without missing a beat, “That’s right, I’ve just come to Korea.”
He had a motive for coming to meet Chu Joon Ho as well. Without intending to play any more probing games, he spoke directly, “Chu Joon Ho, since you are the President of the United Republic of Korea, I need to tell you about some things. I’ve just come back from the 2nd World.”
Chu Joon Ho was taken aback and frowned, “2nd World? What’s that?”
He had never heard of this term before.
Yue Zhong continued solemnly, “It is a planet that has been devastated by a nuclear war, and it is filled with countless monsters. I’ve returned from the world and have gained some intel. The spatial tunnel between our worlds is about to open. At that time, there will be many monsters pouring out from the tunnel, attacking our human race. Those monsters are strong, and many of the current Evolved zombies are not their match. Please make your preparations as soon as possible.”
“What?! Is this true?!”
Chu Joon Ho’s face fell. If it were before the apocalypse, he would have laughed at Yue Zhong for being insane. However, since the world had changed, everything that they had known was flipped around. It seemed that everything was under the control of that entity calling itself God. There could be even more absurd and ludicrous things happening.
Yue Zhong continued solemnly, “It’s true. I will leave here soon, heading back to China. Chu Joon Ho, I hope that you can treat the Chinese here with respect, and not let them suffer.”
As the President of the United Republic of Korea, Chu Joon Ho did not have extremist views nor mistreat those of Chinese descent. That was why Yue Zhong decided to communicate with him. Otherwise, he would have just killed his way over, killing him.
Hearing Yue Zhong’s words, Chu Joon Ho was partly happy, partly worried. Happy because this huge threat was going to leave Korea, but worrisome because all the more his words were to be trusted.
He maintained a serious expression, “Yue Zhong, I hope that you can tell me more about this 2nd World.”
Yue Zhong thus began to reveal all that he knew about the 2nd World. The Saint Clan was strong beyond words, adding on to the various foreign species and Mutant Beasts, he had to gather as much power and strength as he could to deal with the imminent invasion. He definitely needed allies.
Right as he was discussing with Chu Joon Ho, there was a loud explosion outside the living room, and one of the walls was blasted away.
The explosion caused a huge commotion, and all the participants of the dinner screamed out and fled.
3 men and 1 women stepped in through the hole in the living room.
One of the middle-aged men with normal looks and a crossed-eye look swept his gaze around, before landing on Chu Joon Ho. His face broke out into a smile, “Hahaha!! Chu Joon Ho, you’re here as expected!”
Chapter 752: The First Divine Envoy!
Chu Joon Ho’s face turned ashen, “Kim Park Chan, you dare intrude on my banquet. If you don’t give me an explanation, don’t even think about leaving here.”
Kim Park Chan’s eyes flashed with disdain as he laughed, “Explanation? What a joke. Chu Joon Ho, you had better kneel down now and surrender. Hand over the entire United Republic of Korea to me. I can still leave you your life, otherwise, today will be the day you die.”
Chu Joon Ho laughed, and pressed a remote control button, “Good! Good! Good! Kim Park Chun, I want to see how you can kill me!”
Alarms started to ring throughout the entire villa.
Hearing the blaring sounds, all the experts hidden within the villa appeared, charging over to Chu Joon Ho’s location.
One of the intruders, a burly European man, spoke out in English, “Why are you wasting your breath on him? Since he’s not willing to surrender, let’s just kill him. Beni, get rid of the riff-raff.”
The European woman with long, blond hair and a sexy figure, but with a freckled face, flipped her hands, revealing 2 silver, sci-fi-looking guns.
When those 2 guns appeared, she began to shoot them out in a physic-defying manner. As she spun, she would fire out bullets accurately at the approaching experts.
Each bullet would land accurately on an elite, causing their bodies to explode. The blood and body parts would splatter everywhere in a gory manner.
Beni was slightly ugly, but she was capable. She completely suppressed the elites of the United Republic of Korea, exhibiting a terrifying combat strength.
Chu Joon Ho saw how Beni was suppressing his elites and his face fell, exclaiming, “Strong! Who are you people?”
The tower-like burly man walked forward with a cold look, “I’m Burt, the 1st Divine Envoy of the Kingdom of God. Chu Joon Ho, you only have 2 choices now. Join our Kingdom of God, or die!”
Chu Joon Ho frowned, “Kingdom of God? What organization is that?”
“So you guys are from the Kingdom of God? Good timing, I wanted some information from you guys.”
Just as Chu Joon Ho was pondering, Yue Zhong stood up. With a tap of his foot, he disappeared from his location, appearing beside Burt, and striking towards the back of his head.
“Strong! Who is this?”
Burt was the 1st Divine Envoy, with strength almost reaching the Apostles. And yet, he felt a huge sense of crisis and helplessness from this man. Even the Apostles did not give him this feeling.
At that moment in time, Burt suddenly disappeared from his location, appearing about 20m away from Yue Zhong. He then activated his life-saving skill, his face full of perspiration.
“Spread out!! Attack those women!!”
Burt roared out in rage, pulling out 2 flash grenades and throwing them, before fleeing madly.
Beni and the other Divine Envoy Mike had worked together with Burt for long, and they knew each other movements like the back of their hands.
Beni spun her silver revolvers, her bullets firing at the few Korean ladies.
Compared to Yue Zhong, those women were easier to deal with. Furthermore, such a tactic would force Yue Zhong to protect those women, thus, elevating their chances of escape.
Mike’s eyes gleamed, and he slapped his hands on to the ground. A powerful yellow light burst out, causing multiple spikes to shoot out from the ground, piercing towards Yue Zhong as well as the women.
“Fleeing? Pretty decent reaction.”
With a wave of his hands, a huge shield appeared in front of him. He channeled his strength, and another energy shield appeared, enveloping himself and the ladies.
The flash grenades exploded, and the bright light covered the entire region.
When the grenades blasted out on the shields, they caused ripples, but not enough to shatter them. The sharp spikes also slammed into the large shield and shattered instead.
Lee Young Joon twisted his body, retreating backward. However, a single grenade managed to find his position as though it had an eye and blasted his right arm apart.
A sharp spike shot out from the ground, piercing Lee Young Joon’s body, nailing him to the wall.
Jeon Yoon Ah and the other women saw how the expert Lee Young Joon had been reduced to a corpse within seconds, and their faces fell, hiding behind Yue Zhong in fear. Without his protection, they would have all become corpses.
At this time, Chu Joon Ho exhibited his strength as the President of the United Republic of Korea. His body was wrapped with a green Dou Qi, his strength reaching the initial-Type 4 realm, and he tunneled into the ground nimbly.
The arrogant Kim Park Chan saw how his backers had fled, and his face turned pale. However, his reaction was pretty swift, and he turned around, preparing to leap out.
“Trying to flee?”
Yue Zhong laughed coldly, and immediately channeled his Shadow Clone ability. 4 Clones shot out like specters, appearing right behind Burt, Beni, and Mike, chopping down on the back of their necks.
Although they were unable to utilize the skills, they had his physique. That single palm was equivalent to a Type 5 expert’s attack.
No matter how strong those 3 Divine Envoys were, they were at most at the mid-Type 4 realm. In just a breath’s time, Beni and Mike were knocked unconscious
Kim Park Chan also failed to escape, falling unconscious.
As for Burt, he continued to flicker about, using his strongest escape skill. He managed to evade that attack from the clone and continued to flee. He had no capacity to concern himself about his comrades.
“Strong!! Too strong!! He actually used his clones to take out 3 experts in a second. His strength is too fearsome!! Fortunately, I chose to cooperate with him. I can’t even take on a single clone of his!” Chu Joon Ho saw how Yue Zhong did not need to move and just sent out 4 clones to deal with his enemies. His eyes were filled with complicated emotions, his heart also filled with envy.
“Not bad. Truly the 1st Divine Envoy of the Kingdom of God. Chu Joon Ho, I’ll leave things here to you.”
Yue Zhong stared at Burt, his eyes flashing with self-deprecation. A Type 4 expert like him was actually able to slip through his fingers. This was a testimony to his strength and calm mind.
He grabbed Jung Ri Soo with one hand, and took a single leap, disappearing from his location.
Chu Joon Ho swept a glance across the Korean idols that Yue Zhong left behind, and came to the conclusion, “He did not even place them in mind. Only that woman beside him is important.”
Burt gasped for breath, desperately running through a few alleys. The Flash skill consumed a lot of Stamina and Spirit. Using it continuously caused his Stamina to deplete drastically.
When he came to a dark alley, he saw a window, and his eyes brightened. He channeled his energy once more and appeared within the room.
There were 2 survivors within, and when they saw Burt suddenly appearing in their flat, there was shock in their eyes, and they opened their mouths to shout.
Before they could do so, however, Burt waved his hands, and 2 daggers shot out, piercing the necks of those 2 survivors, slicing through.
“There should not be any problems like this.”
After killing those 2 survivors, he heaved a sigh of relief and relaxed.
At this moment, a huge palm came down on his neck without any warning. Before he could react, Burt was already knocked unconscious.
Yue Zhong appeared in the room, while still carrying Jung Ri Soo.
Earlier, Burt had been able to evade the attacks because Yue Zhong had not gone all out. Now, he was sure not to make the same mistake twice. That was how he was able to knock him unconscious.
When Burt came to, he was already a Puppet, “Burt greets Master.”
Yue Zhong asked, “Burt, the 12 Apostles, where have they been in this past year? Are they still on Earth?”
The 12 Apostles were all Heaven’s favorites, geniuses of their eras. They had awakened multiple attributes naturally during their evolution, a one-in-hundreds of thousands chance. If they were to leave Earth, it was possible for them to come across other fortuitous encounters, and might even surpass Yue Zhong.
Burt replied, “I’m not entirely sure about their movements. I only know that half a year ago, because of some unknown reason, all 12 Apostles were recalled back to headquarters. In these past 6 months, it had been us Divine Envoys carrying out missions, expanding the Kingdom of GoOd. However, without the power of the Apostles, we had to withdraw our troops from various locations and give it up.”
Yue Zhong frowned, “Then why appear in Korea?”
Burt replied, “We want to bring South Korea and North Korea into our control establishing a strong logistics location, using North Korea as the fortress and combining with our forces in Russia to attack China, the faction that you had established, Master.”
Chapter 753: The Flesh-Eaters Appear!
Yue Zhong, who had been indifferent, finally lost his cool, “What? Join hands to attack China? What’s with the Russian Empire? Has Russia finally been united?”
The Russians had always been one of the opponents of China. At the same time, their desire for territory was well-known. In this current apocalypse, once a greedy Russian manages to unify the country, they would not let go of China in the North.
“Russia does not have a leader. Their capital Moscow had already been completely conquered by zombies. It’s rumored that there are appearances of powerful Evolved zombies with intelligence and terrifying combat abilities.”
“Under the lead of these Evolved zombies, Russia’s human factions were annihilated one by one. Their northern area had already belonged to the zombies.”
“As for the southern side, due to the pressure of the zombies, many human factions had allied and formed a new Russian government. This is a strong alliance, with over a million survivors. They only have a 100,000-strong army, possessing the weapons of the Cold War period.
“Making use of those weapons, they managed to wipe out over a million zombies. However, the zombie army in the north marched on under the lead of the Evolved zombie, using their superior might and numbers to crush the main forces, forcing the human factions further south.”
“Under such circumstances, Russia had finally chosen to work with the Kingdom of God, to attack the faction in China,” Burt revealed everything he knew.
A dark look came over Yue Zhong’s eyes, “In exchange, you guys would provide Russia with a large number of weapons and ammunition, right?”
Burt nodded, “That’s right, we have provided them with weapons, ammunition, and ration.”
Yue Zhong chuckled bitterly, before sighing. He was filled with complicated emotions right now.
The Gates of Hell had already opened, and the Vampires and Flesh-Eaters of the 2nd World were about to invade Earth. Yet, the humans on Earth were still caught up in their own conflicts, slaughtering among themselves. This did not bode well for their future.
“No, save me!”
All of a sudden, there were screams ringing out from the streets.
“What’s going on?”
When Yue Zhong heard those screams, he darted and appeared outside swiftly.
Only to discover that the streets of Seoul were plunged into chaos, with numerous people running around amok, screaming at the top of their lungs.
A number of Flesh-Eaters that were 90% similar to humans in appearance were slaughtering the people on the street.
One Flesh-Eater charged forwards, directly pouncing and knocking a human to the ground. He then used his claws to tear through to the heart of the person, digging it out, before consuming it while laughing savagely.
A blond Vampire flickered, appearing in front of a woman. He grabbed her head and pulled down roughly, before bending down to suck her blood voraciously.
Throughout Seoul, it was like Hell. Death was everywhere, and there were numerous cruel and savage Flesh-Eaters and Vampires slaughtering people on sight.
Yue Zhong looked at the chaos, and his face fell, “Flesh-Eaters!! They’ve already arrived!! It’s too damn fast!”
He had originally assumed that they would only appear after some time. Who would have thought they had already arrived in Seoul.
The moment he came out to the street, 2 Flesh-Eaters covered in blood pounced towards him in a frenzy.
He pulled out his Black Tooth Blade and sliced them apart, their bodies sent flying.
After that, he quickly dashed forward, and in a manner of seconds, he appeared back at the banquet hall.
He threw a communicator to Chu Joon Ho, barking out solemnly, “Mobilize your troops immediately, the 2nd World’s Flesh-Eaters have already appeared in Seoul. Hurry!”
Chu Joon Ho’s face fell. He did not waste any time, however, and quickly made the decision, “What?! Alright, got it. I’ll go mobilize them now, to wipe out those creatures!”
Immediately, he disappeared from his original location, heading towards his forces.
Yue Zhong then glanced at the unconscious Kim Park Chan and sent a Puppet Rune into his head.
Kim Park Chan stirred awake not long after, and greeted Yue Zhong with respect, “Greetings Master.”
Yue Zhong ordered, “Go mobilize your troops now, eliminate all monsters you see.”
Kim Park Chan was after the President of The Republic of Korea faction, and he had a sizeable force. If he could muster them all, it would be possible to annihilate the monsters and save some people.
He bowed down and swiftly headed out, “Understood!”
Yue Zhong glanced at Jeon Yoon Ah and the rest and said indifferently, “The few of you, follow me.”
When they heard that, they quickly ran forward.
In this current chaos, only Yue Zhong would be able to protect them.
At the entrance of the large hall, Yue Zhong led the women into a military truck and swiftly headed towards the Revival Assembly base.
Along the way, Flesh-Eaters could be seen everywhere, killing and pillaging, raping and destroying everything.
Seeing the military truck containing Yue Zhong and the rest, dozens of them quickly roared out and charged towards them.
The women were all frightened out of their wits, huddling together and trembling.
Yue Zhong pulled out his Stinger and fired out a few times.
Peng! Peng! Peng!
Each continuous shot took out the Flesh-Eaters in succession, preventing them from even nearing the military truck.
Jung Ri Soo watched how calm Yue Zhong was, and her fear subsided, her gaze full of adoration, “So cool!! He really does give a sense of security.”
Chapter 754: Breakthrough!
Yue Zhong continued to drive through, killing a dozen of Flesh-Eaters before arriving at the Revival Assembly base.
Currently, there were Flesh-Eaters and Vampires everywhere, slaughtering humans.
The soldiers had been cleaned out once by Yue Zhong, leaving only 200 Puppet soldiers.
These 200 Puppet soldiers could only defend a few key locations and were helpless to the rest.
One could see the slaughter of the Koreans at the hands of those Flesh-Eaters and Vampires, while screams rang throughout the air. It was like hell.
Yue Zhong blasted the heads of a few Flesh-Eaters as he cursed out. No matter how strong he was, it was impossible for him to save the thousands of people here. Defending was always tougher than offense.
Yue Zhong immediately went to the command center and held the fort, while deploying the 200 Puppet soldiers out.
They formed units and began to fight back, rescuing numerous survivors.
The weak point about these Puppet soldiers was that without an order, they would be rigid and stupid in their movements. Yue Zhong had to constantly give out orders for them to carry out.
“Warning! Warning! There is a large horde of zombies right outside Seoul, making their way towards this location. Based on estimations, they will completely surround Seoul in 30 minutes, and cutting off any retreat to North Korea.”
All of a sudden, Bai Yi’s image appeared in the corner of the display, reporting the imminent disaster.
Intelligence and information were important in modern warfare. Yue Zhong knew the importance of it, that was why he had planted several electronic flies everywhere to be his eyes and ears.
His face fell, “What?! Pull up the image!”
The display went fuzzy for a while before a dozen images were shown.
Under Bai Yi’s control, the various displays were enlarged to reveal the terrifying scene outside of the city.
On the displays, a huge horde of zombies was currently running at a speed that surpassed humans, with an agility that had never been seen in them before, as they made their way towards Seoul.
Among the zombies, there were many L2s, L3s, S2s, S3s, S4s, H2s, Devourers, Hunters, and other Evolved zombies. After an entire year of evolution, these zombies had become stronger and faster, developing scales and horns.
The sea of zombies was enough to make even a Type 5 expert like Yue Zhong shudder.
With Yue Zhong’s current strength, it would be easy for him to slaughter a thousand evolved Zombies. However, the zombies had a single, terrifying, advantage, which was their numbers. Their seemingly endless numbers. No matter how strong Yue Zhong was, throwing himself into the sea of zombies would just spell his doom.
“What is that? Flying zombies?! How the hell?! If there are hundred of thousands of them, how the hell can humans defend against that?!”
All of a sudden, Yue Zhong caught sight of an entire patch that covered the sky. Looking closer, he realized that these were Evolved zombies of about 1.3m in height, their limbs short, but their backs had a pair of powerful, fleshy wings.
Seeing this, Yue Zhong’s heart turned cold. The humans were already at a disadvantage. Relying on firepower and traps, they might be able to defend cities. However, with the appearance of these flight-based creatures, ground-based defenses were ineffective against them. It had become increasingly harder for the humans to defend.
When defending the 20 Xue Luo Forts back in the 3rd World, Yue Zhong had experienced it for himself. Defending against the aerial attacks was tougher by many times, more so than just when the Dino-Warriors and their vassal forces charged alone. Without the joint attack from the aerial units, the Xue Luo Forts would not have fallen so easily.
“Seoul can no longer be defended!” Yue Zhong saw the endless horde, and he sighed.
Yue Zhong had no direct subordinates in Seoul, just relying on commanding those Puppet soldiers took a lot of his mental capacity. In front of the huge sea of zombies, his current force was nothing.
He then steeled himself and threw away all emotions, “Immediately gather forces to retreat.”
After hesitating a while, he ordered into his communicator once more, “Tell them, the person who wants to lead them away is Chinese, he’s Yue Zhong, the murderer of Choi Won Wong. The chosen point to breach the siege would be at North Korea. They’re free to choose if they want to follow or stay. However, those who want to follow must abide by our orders unconditionally.”
When the Puppet soldiers disseminated the orders, there was a commotion among them. Many chose to slink away quietly. They were not comfortable with a foreigner being their leader. At the same time, most of the survivors here did not have favorable feelings about the Chinese. They were afraid that he would hold it against them after.
Yue Zhong contacted Chu Joon Ho, “Chu Joon Ho, my men have discovered a huge horde of zombies currently surrounding the city. In about 30 minutes, the zombies would surround Seoul, cutting off retreat into North Korea. I’m preparing to breach through there. You should make your preparations too. I’m making a move first, am heading towards North Korea.”
“What?” Chu Joon Ho exclaimed in shock, “Yue Zhong, come with me to Suwon City. If our armies work together, we definitely can breach the siege and reach Suwon City safely!”
Chu Joon Ho’s base was in Korea, he was not willing to head to North Korea with Yue Zhong. Furthermore, if he were to tell his subordinates that he wanted to go to North Korea, it was likely that many would desert him.
Yue Zhong turned him down resolutely, “I’m heading back to China, I can’t go with you. All the best, and goodbye. See you if fate allows it.”
After cutting off the connection, Yue Zhong began to organize his troops and left immediately.
A number of buses drove off, and with the help of the Puppet soldiers, the survivors began to get aboard.
Not long after, a fleet of armored vehicles and heavy vehicles started to move swiftly towards the exit of Seoul City.
When the fleet reached about 5km away from Seoul, the howls and roars of the horde could be heard, as many zombies headed towards them.
Inside the vehicle fleet, the survivors saw the zombies running faster than humans and screamed out of fear.
The mechanized infantry vehicles began to extend their weapons and fired at the zombies.
During the volley of fire, many zombies were pierced through, their bodies destroyed. However, many others fell to the ground and got back up almost immediately after, as though there was no effect.
Inside the car, Yue Zhong quickly made a decision, “No. If this goes on, everyone will be wiped out.”
The zombies had evolved into a terrifying state, with the current firepower Yue Zhong had, it was not enough to carve a way out.
With a single thought, Yue Zhong leaped out of the car and channeled his Summon Tamed Beast technique. A void appeared out of mid-air, and Mount Tai appeared out of the hole, dashing towards the zombies.
The moment Mount Tai appeared and charged, with every swing of its tail, over hundreds and thousands of zombies would be instantly pulverized.
With the help of Mount Tai suppression, a huge part of the zombies was killed, revealing a path.
Yue Zhong’s fleet continued to drive through, right through the mass of blood and flesh.
Right after they charged through, the dense horde suddenly split apart, revealing a number of H2s, with their mouths open, as they shot multiple flame balls towards the fleet.
Hong! Hong! Hong!!
Faced with those H2s, a number of armored vehicles and buses were blasted apart. In an instant, over 200 survivors were killed in the resulting explosions.
When they saw this, many other survivors screamed out in terror.
Yue Zhong waved his hands, and 2 Electromagnetic Cannons appeared. He held them and began to fire at an incredible speed, blasting the heads of those H2s accurately as though the bullets had eyes.
The heads of the H2s exploded one by one, slumping to the floor lifelessly.
Over a dozen of them were killed in an instant by Yue Zhong, while the rest that had just revealed their heads would also be taken out instantly.
Due to Yue Zhong’s timely decisions and actions, soon, with the help of Mount Tai, the entire group managed to break through the siege.
However, just as they had just exited the horde, a number of infantry vehicles rolled out from behind. To their horror, there were zombies controlling the heavy machine guns, firing at the various armored vehicles and buses.
When that barrage of heavy caliber bullets slammed into the buses, they pierced the buses easily, penetrating the bodies of the humans in them.
Chapter 755: Seoul Falls!
The survivors that were hit by the machine gun bullets screamed out in agony, as they fell and writhed about.
Seeing their plight, the rest of the survivors had eyes full of fear, but they were helpless, unable to do anything.
“What the hell?! Those zombies know how to use weapons? How the hell are humans supposed to survive? Yue Zhong stared at the zombies in shock.
Although the zombies could operate firearms, in truth, their damage could not compare to those H2s. However, it was a fact that was hard to swallow.
Humans could suppress zombies in the past because they could use tools and set traps, firing weapons with the weapons left behind during the apocalypse.
After all, the numbers of the zombies were at least 100 times that of humans. The territory that they covered was also at least 10 times. If they could already use weapons, it was a nightmare to all survivors.
If both sides could use weapons, then the zombies that were undying would hold a huge advantage.
Yue Zhong turned around, firing the electromagnetic cannons in his hands at those incoming machine gun vehicles. They exploded when the beams of light blasted onto them.
Right at this time, the airborne dwarf zombies began to fly over.
“Airborne Mutated Infected Evolved Being Level 30 F1, possesses the ability of flight, sharp claws and high infection rate.”
Yue Zhong glanced at the F1s, and with a glint in his eyes, he clapped his hands towards them, channeling his Devil Flames. The flames shot out in 2 towering beams, blasting towards the F1s. The moment those F1s came in contact with the Devil Flames, they screamed out in agony, turning into ash.
However, their numbers were really too many. A lot of them managed to evade the Devil Flames as they pounced on the buses.
With their sharp claws, they easily tore the hull apart, before burrowing into the bus and began their attack on the humans.
The 3 buses were quickly surrounded by the F1s and swarmed. The screams within the buses spelled the doom of the 100-odd survivors as they became food.
With a thought, Yue Zhong caused the Devil Flames to spread out and envelop the area, turning even more F1s into ashes.
When over a thousand F1s had been consumed by the Devil Flames, there was a strange howl from the midst of the zombie horde. Upon hearing that signal, all the F1s quickly evacuated the area, not harassing Yue Zhong’s group further.
Yue Zhong leaped high into the sky, over 20m, and he looked to the distance. He discovered that about 10 km away, there was a young man who looked similar to humans in appearance, of about 2m in height, covered in black scales and his eyes were bloodshot. He was staring fixedly at Yue Zhong with a violent and savage look.
Yue Zhong stared at him, and he could tell from the intelligence behind its gaze, “Super-intelligent Evolved Zombie lifeform.”
Descending back, Yue Zhong came to the car and swept a glance towards the back.
By now, the zombie horde had already covered the hole that they had breached through.
Yue Zhong looked at the sealed route, his eyes flashing with a complicated gaze, “Seoul is finished!”
With over a million Evolved zombies surrounding the place, even if Yue Zhong were to utilize all his trump cards, he would not be able to save Seoul. One single person was still too small against an army.
In order to salvage the current situation, Yue Zhong estimated that he would have to be at the Type 8 or Type 9 Divine Warrior realm at least.
He had seen for himself how terrifying a Type 9 Divine Warrior was, back at the 3rd World. It was an entity that could transcend space, possessing the qualifications to challenge ‘God’. If he could reach that level, he would be able to take on these millions of zombies without problems.
The moment Yue Zhong left, Seoul no longer had any faction strong enough to withstand the zombies.
On the streets, there were screams everywhere, as zombies chased down the Korean survivors, devouring them, leaving only bones behind.
Everywhere, screams rang out, with broken bodies and scattered organs strewn all over the ground.
As the zombies were consuming the humans, they quickly came across the Flesh-Eaters and Vampires of the 2nd World.
When those zombies saw these new entities, they did not let up their attack, instead, pouncing onto them, and tearing them to bits.
In retaliation, the Flesh-Eaters and Vampires went all out and tore the heads off the zombies.
Both sides engaged in a wanton slaughter of the humans and an intense clash between the both of them.
Soon, the battle was turning in the favor of the zombies.
While the Flesh-Eaters and Vampires were strong, the numbers of the zombies were simply overwhelming. The moment they got careless, the zombies would overpower them, and tear them into pieces.
Although the infection and virus had no way of affecting the Saint Clan, they could still tear them apart.
As the Flesh-Eaters and Vampires were being forced back, a blond-haired, blue-eyed man walked out, dressed in a suit, looking like a knight from the Middle-Ages.
A strong pressure emitted from him, and when the zombies that were unafraid of death felt the pressure, even they began to tremble and lost the will to fight.
The man looked at the horde of zombies and spoke, “Commander of the Zombie Clan that had just come into being. I’m your kin, the Ancestor of the Zombie Clan from another world. My name is Ulrich, and I hope to speak to you. We are of the same kind, and we can work together. We have some information on your world and know things that you don’t. Would you like to know the reason you’ve gained sentience? Would you want to know how to continue evolving? Would you want to survive? As long as you cooperate with us, we will tell you everything.”
A Type 5 Ancestor was an entity that taken part in the Sacred War for many months and years in the 2nd World, till they achieved victory. Thus, they knew many things, as well as what the newly-sentient Evolved zombies of this world desired.
The zombie horde turned silent, before splitting apart. The 2m-tall Super-Evolved zombie covered in black scales that had crossed glares with Yue Zhong earlier, walked out, looking at Ulrich and spoke, “I’m Cao Min Long, I want to know some answers. If you can tell me, I’m willing to cooperate with you.”
Ulrich gazed at him and sighed, “Peak of Type 4. You’re already at the peak of Type 4 Divine Warrior realm. You have a powerful evolution potential and might even reach the Type 6 realm. I will tell you all I know, you should evolve to the Type 5 realm soon.”
As Cao Min Long and Ulrich came to an agreement and joined forces, the entire Seoul became hell for the humans, where their screams of agony rang out.
The screams and moans carried on for the entire night.
When the first ray of sunlight hit Seoul, all that could be seen were wandering zombies, and among them, many of their bodies were already in states of rotting, but their skin was not yet dried up, compared to the rest which was already emaciated for a long while.
Just yesterday, the boisterous city containing hundreds of thousands of people had already transformed into a ghost city, with countless blood spots everywhere.
The zombies continued to lumber around Seoul, mixed with the Flesh-Eaters and Vampires. From time to time, they would manage to sniff out a human, before tearing them into pieces.
On the other side, Yue Zhong’s convoy continued to travel through the night, crossing over a hundred li. They had already passed into North Korea’s territory.
Along the way, they did not come across too many zombies. Somehow, all of them had already been summoned by Cao Min Long in the past, gathered together within Seoul now.
Those intelligent evolved zombies had already learned to gather their forces. Even Yue Zhong did not dare to face their amassed force head-on.
When they entered North Korea, they were met with a scene entirely different from South Korea.
In South Korea, the buildings were tall, the cars aplenty, filled with signs of modern society. As for North Korea, there were plenty of old-fashioned houses, the roads were not level. Everywhere, the propaganda of their glorious leader could be seen.
Yue Zhong found a quiet and broad place to stop the fleet, before getting the survivors to alight and consume breakfast.
Those who were willing to leave with Yue Zhong did not number many, only about over a thousand, filling 20 different vehicles.
During the breach of the zombies, hundreds had died, and their buses were down to 11, leaving behind only slightly over 600. Half of the survivors had been lost in the journey.
Chapter 756: Departure and Death!
The faces of the survivors were filled with weariness, dread, and sorrow as they disembarked. Corpses were carried down and tossed to the side.
These survivors had experienced a night filled with horror and tension. The aftermath left them so exhausted that they had no energy to bury the bodies.
Jeon Yoon Ah and the other females came down and heard sounds of crying and wailing. The machine guns yesterday had hit a few unlucky survivors in their arms and legs. Without medical treatment, they could only groan and wail in agony.
“That was too terrifying. Thankfully I’m with him, otherwise, I would have already been dead.” Jeon Yoon Ah stared at the survivors, a chill creeping up her heart.
The rest of the ladies were also celebrating inwardly.
Flames crackled, as the Puppet soldiers became chefs and waiters, serving bowls filled with cooked rice and flour to the survivors.
Yue Zhong’s side was able to enjoy the pleasurable Type 4 Mutant Beast meat, as the smell of the delicious meat wafted in all directions.
Jeon Yoon Ah and the other ladies did not care much for their image, wolfing down the meat, as though they were about to swallow their own tongues.
Many survivors stared over hungrily, their eyes filled with expectations and hope. Many of them had not eaten meat in goodness knows how long. Even if they did, it had been rat meat, bugs, and for some, human flesh.
Choi Min Shik, a burly Korean man with a thick mustache finished his bowl in a few mouthfuls before a fierce glint appeared in his eyes. He stood up, shouting arrogantly, “I can’t take this anymore. We’re eating garbage over here, while that Chinese is eating meat!”
He continued agitatedly, “Everybody, think about it, yesterday we listened to his command and left Seoul. How many died?! Over half!! If we had gone to Busan, we would not have lost so many people! This Chinese cannot be trusted. Everyone! Join me and resist!! We must get back our rights!! Leave this Chinese man!”
Under his incitement, many survivors began to show expressions of hatred. Due to the number of deaths the previous night, they have filled with some prejudice towards Yue Zhong already. It did not take much for them to be riled up. However, they did not dare act due to the Puppet soldiers standing guard around.
Choi Min Shik walked up to one of the soldiers and spoke loudly, “We Koreans would not bow to violence! If you want to open fire, just kill me! I don’t want to live on in this godforsaken world!! I will tear off your mask and let everyone see your true colors!!”
“What are you shouting for?”
At this time, Yue Zhong walked over, with Jung Ri Soo beside him translating, conveying Yue Zhong’s words, while translating the words of the Koreans for Yue Zhong.
Choi Min Shik saw Yue Zhong and took a few steps back involuntarily. He had seen how Yue Zhong was able to resist the sea of zombies last night. If Yue Zhong wanted to kill him, he would be dead in a heartbeat.
Yue Zhong shot them a cold look, “Those who want to leave, I won’t stop. There’s no problem if you want to go. I can give you 20 days’ worth of rations. Please go quickly. Those who stay on, have to abide by my orders without complaints, regardless of how ridiculous it might be. If you can’t do that, just go.”
Yue Zhong had saved them due to the little humanitarianism he still had left in him. Since they were not appreciative, he would not continue sticking his warm intentions on their cold backsides.
He then shot Choi Min Shik a cold look full of killing intent, “And you. If you want to leave, leave. Any more bullshit and I won’t be merciful.”
Being stared at by Yue Zhong, Choi Min Shik felt fear, and he retreated hastily, before turning around to speak to the rest, “Guys! Listen to me! Let’s leave together and work together!! We can definitely make it out of this alive! Long live the Republic of Korea!!”
Choi Min Shik shouted and walked over to the Puppet soldiers, grabbing his share of 20 days rations, and began to wolf it down.
Most of the survivors were not happy having a foreigner like Yue Zhong lead them. Adding on to the death toll of the previous night, they were filled with distrust and dissatisfaction over his leadership. Most of them were also famished. Under these circumstances, almost all the Korean survivors stood up and went to take their rations, following after Choi Min Shik.
Apparently, they were not happy with Yue Zhong’s dictatorship. Few were willing to hand their lives over to a foreigner.
At the same time, they had not seen any zombies, so they were beginning to think that it was possible to survive with their own strength.
Yue Zhong watched coldly as they left, not saying anything.
He then swept a glance at Jeon Yoon Ah and the rest, “You may leave as well. I won’t stop you.”
To him, these Korean survivors were a burden. The more that left him, the better. He would not have to be responsible for all their lives then.
Jeon Yoon Ah looked at him with teary eyes, “Sir Yue Zhong, I won’t leave. I’m yours for life. Please don’t chase me away.”
She was smart, and she knew that even if she took her 20 days of rations, it would be snatched by those men in the survivors’ group, and be treated as a toy, leading a life worse than a dog. Choosing to stay with Yue Zhong was a better choice.
“She snatched it!!”
The other 3 exchanged looks and quickly came forward to plead pitifully, “Yue Zhong, we are your people. Please don’t leave abandon us, we’re willing to listen to your orders.
Yue Zhong swept a glance and realized there were 20 other women of Chinese descent that did not leave. Evidently, having been tortured by those beasts in the Revival Assembly, they had lost trust in the Koreans.
After breakfast, Yue Zhong declared solemnly, “Alright, let’s leave.”
The huge convoy then began to make its way further into North Korea.
Not long after they left, there were screams and gunshots in the distance.
“Save me!! Help!!”
“Wait!! Wait for us!!”
At this time, those Koreans that had left came running back towards the breakfast point, screaming in fear.
Behind them, there were many zombies in tattered military clothes wielding rifles, chasing after them.
They leaped onto the Korean survivors whenever they could and bit down viciously.
They continued to scream loudly; at every second, a Korean survivor would fall under the grasp of the zombies, screaming out in despair and fear.
“Scram!! Out of my way!”
Choi Min Shik, who had tried to incite the Koreans, had thrown his rations to one side, shoving his fellow survivors, trying to make his way towards the breakfast point.
“No!! We shall all die together!!”
One of the men, who had been pushed to the ground by Choi Min Shik, had a sudden glint of desperation and madness. He burst forth with a sudden bout of strength, grabbing Choi Min Shik’s right leg.
Choi Min Shik began to kick the man while shouting furiously, “Fuck off!! Fuck off!! Bastard!!!”
The man was kicked bloody, but he continued to grab Choi Min Shik’s leg tightly.
2 zombies which ran faster than humans suddenly pounced over, grabbing Choi Min Shik and bit down on his neck.
He screamed out like a wounded beast, struggling frantically. However, he could not get out of the zombie’s grasp and was consumed alive soon after.
The zombies were already faster than humans. In their midst, there were even the Hunters. None of them managed to make it to the breakfast point, as they were already all killed.
A single Korean Evolver with decent skills and wielding a Level 3 Green Sharpsword hacked and slashed his way over, decapitating the low-level Evolved zombies.
All of a sudden, a Devourer leaped out from within the zombie group and leaped at the Korean Evolver.
In a flash, the head of the Korean Evolver disappeared, reappearing in the mouth of the Devourer. It bit down with its sharp teeth, crushing the head of the Korean Evolver, as red and white matter splattered everywhere.
When Jeon Yoon Ah and the rest saw what happened to them, their hearts turned cold and they trembled uncontrollably. Had they chosen to leave earlier, they would have been among those who died.
Chapter 757: Pyongyang, Sea Beasts Come on Shore!
When the women of Chinese and mixed Korean-Chinese descent saw the scene, their backs were also filled with cold sweat. Being consumed alive by zombies was one of the cruelest ways to die.
Yue Zhong eyed the group of zombies and ordered coldly, “Kill them!”
White Bones flashed, with a speed surpassing the sound barrier, reaching their midst in a breath. Countless bone spike protruded out from its body, and it spun madly, turning into a fearsome meat grinder.
In an instant, many of the zombies were sliced apart as their limbs flew everywhere.
When the 3 Hunters discovered White Bones, they leaped with all their might towards it.
White Bones then channeled out even more sharp bone blades, slashing at the incoming 3 Hunters, slicing them up into multiple parts.
In just a few breaths, White Bones had obliterated the entire group of zombies.
After killing them, Yue Zhong ordered the Puppet soldiers to gather the survivors’ corpses together. He then poured oil and lit them up, burning the dead bodies into ashes.
Once they were done, the convoy began to set off one more towards the North.
It was quiet along the way, without any signs of life. From time to time, they would come across small, scattered groups of zombies.
Before they got close, they would be sliced apart by White Bones.
As for the Type 5 Mount Tai who had acted as the meat grinder vanguard, it returned to the sea. Its consumption was too terrifying, only the vast sea could feed it.
“Stop!! Don’t move!! Otherwise, we’ll open fire.”
When the convoy got closer to the capital Pyongyang, a number of North Korean soldiers appeared on one of the roads, barking out loudly.
Yue Zhong frowned slightly, waving his hands for the convoy to stop. Although he could get White Bones to kill them all, unless there was a special reason, he wanted to try and communicate.
As they came to a stop, Yue Zhong came down from the vehicle and saw a shocking sight on the sides of the road.
There were a number of men had sharp spikes pierced through their tibia (shin bones), tied to wooden stakes. Many of them were moaning in agony, while others had died, and were already dried up corpses.
The North Korean soldier barked out, “Get down on your knees and hand over your weapons!! Hands above your head!! Otherwise, I’ll beat you to death, you damn Chinese.”
The militant used his gun to point at Yue Zhong as he barked out, “On your knees!! On your knees!!”
Jung Ri Soo quickly translated for Yue Zhong.
A strong killing intent poured out of Yue Zhong as he commanded coldly, “Since you don’t give face, you can all go to hell.”
With that order, White Bones transformed into a flash, and charged right into their midst, slaughtering the few militants in a breath.
After dealing with those militants, the convoy continued towards inner Pyongyang.
White Bones took the lead, using its terrifying speed to charge into the enemy ranks and slaughtering them whenever they appeared.
Yue Zhong would never show mercy to those who were unreasonable.
When those North Korean militants were killed, none of them could react fast enough to raise the alarm.
Soon, the convoy managed to enter Pyongyang successfully.
Pyongyang City was a pretty lavish city, with modern structures and construction. After all, it was the capital of North Korea.
After entering Pyongyang, Yue Zhong saw a large number of emaciated survivors, as though they were skeletons, their eyes dull and lifeless as they watched Yue Zhong’s group.
In the first place, North Korea had already been lacking in resources, since most of it was imported. In fact, it was one of the countries with the highest death rate from famine.
The apocalypse was in its 2nd year, and all that the North Korean survivors could rely on were the rations left behind.
Most of these were taken up by the upper echelons, while the ordinary survivors suffered.
Seeing Yue Zhong’s powerful armed convoy, the survivors did not dare to provoke him, allowing them to pass through the city smoothly.
Hong! Hong! Hong!
Just as they were at the center of Pyongyang, the sounds of dense artillery fire resounded from afar.
“What’s going on?”
Yue Zhong frowned and quickly sent out a large number of robotic flies and dragonflies.
As the robotic critters flew out, Yue Zhong opened up the display inside the command vehicle. On it, he could see all that the robotic flies saw.
At the northern area of Pyongyang, there was a huge army camp set up, with numerous armored vehicles and soldiers being sent to the frontlines.
As the robotic flies continued forward, the reason for the artillery fire became clear.
There was currently a large horde of sea-based Mutant Beasts coming up on shore near the north side of Pyongyang.
Many North Korean militants were also stationed at the various defense lines, fighting hard to keep the Mutant Beasts at bay.
These militants had obtained the legacies of Pyongyang City, including cannons, infantry vehicles, tanks, rocket launchers, and many more.
With the support of the heavy fire, many Mutant Beasts were blasted to smithereens. However, their numbers seemed to be endless, continuously pushing up the shore. One after another, the defense posts fell.
The militants started to crumble and fell back quickly, while the North Korean soldiers behind collected after them.
Evidently, there were still capable soldiers in North Korea. Some of the soldiers suffered defeat but continued to maintain their ground, utilizing all sorts of combat styles and traps to injure and kill the Mutant Beasts.
When Yue Zhong caught sight of the horde, he frowned, “Are the sea-based Mutant Beasts coming up on shore?”
The Sea Mutant Beasts were an even more threatening force than the zombies. The seas were vast and could sustain countless Mutant Beasts.
Their numbers were likely more than 10 times that of the zombies, at the same time, they had numerous Type 5 Mutant Beasts.
Once those Type 5 Mutant Beasts made their move, with Earth’s current technology, other than the nuclear missiles, nothing else could destroy them.
At the same time, it had only been 2 years since the onset of the apocalypse, Yue Zhong was worried that there might already be a Type 6 Mutant Beast.
Every single movement of a Type 6 Mutant Beast was a disaster. A single Type 6 Sea Mutant Beast could easily level a human city.
On Earth, other than the Nuclear Bombs, super Evolvers also possess the small chance of killing a Type 6 Mutant Beast.
Yue Zhong’s worry soon became reality.
From the midst of the horde, 4 monstrous behemoths over hundreds of meters tall broke out from the surface of the water.
Right behind them, there was even a Type 5 Sea Snake with a single horn, coiling over a thousand kilometers in length.
200 mermaids appeared, with nothing covering their top halves save for shells. Their looks were out of the world, and they were all at least 1.8m. These were the commanders of the Sea Mutant Beasts, the Sea Clan.
And finally among these mermaids, there was one absolute beauty that surpassed them all, with a crown on her blue hair, and a rhombic white-silver crystal embedded on her forehead. She exuded a cold and collected charm while possessing an extremely voluptuous body. This was the royalty of the Sea Clan, the controller of the Type 5 Mutant Beast.
These mermaids seemed to have evolved from some unknown aquatic lifeform, however, they possessed the ability to control the Sea Mutant Beasts. Yue Zhong had caught for himself a little royal from the Sea Clan before, making use of her powers to send many Mutant Beasts to their deaths, empowering his own subordinates. However, that little mermaid’s powers were far inferior to this royalty in front of him.
The moment those Type 4 and Type 5 Mutant Beasts appeared, they immediately charged forth towards the human camps.
One Type 4 Mutant Sea Snake opened its mouth to fire out shots of poison like cannonballs at the human camps. Everywhere the poison struck, the humans would be corroded into puddles.
At the same time, once the poison splattered, they would turn into gas, which enveloped an area of more than a dozen square meters. As the wind blew and the soldiers breathed in the gas, they would turn black and crumple to the floor, struggling in agony before they died.
One huge Mutant Electric Eel that was over hundreds of meters in length had evolved claws, looking like giant Chinese salamanders. It opened its mouth and fired out lightning bolts, frying numerous soldiers into charred corpses.
Chapter 758: Battle of Type 5 Mutant Beasts!
Another huge Type 4 Mutant Black Ice Turtle opened its huge mouth to spit freezing breath towards the human camps. Upon contact, the humans immediately froze into ice sculptures.
The moment these Type 4 Mutant Beasts entered the fray, the tides of the battle changed immediately. The human soldiers were defeated one after another and scattered like raindrops, forced to retreat.
The bombardment of the heavy artillery did not stop, nor did the cannons and heavy machine guns. They continued to fire at the incoming horde of Mutant Beasts.
It was true that the moment these sea-based creatures came on land, their abilities would suffer a drastic drop. Their speed would not be as fast as it was in the water, even the Type 4 Mutant Beasts would rarely reach the speed of sound.
However, even with that handicap, many of them still could surpass the human running speed. They charged forward and quickly used their claws and teeth to tear the human soldiers apart.
Under the lead of the Type 4 Mutant Beasts, the human defense lines started to crumble, while the soldiers retreated in droves.
Tanks and armored vehicles were stomped flat and destroyed, becoming useless piles of metal. A number of human soldiers were directly swallowed or ripped apart.
Once the army realized they were helpless, the soldiers of Pyongyang began to fall apart, forming a tide that surged back in retreat. Many soldiers threw aside their armor and fled for their lives.
As the number of fleeing soldiers increased, even the orders of the commanders were no longer effective.
Almost every soldier was escaping right now, with only a rare few still putting up a brave fight, attacking the Mutant Beasts every now and then. However, such a resistance was deemed futile, and those courageous soldiers were met with a quick death as well.
The human resistance was being destroyed in multiple areas, before finally crumbling totally.
Various armored vehicles containing the high-ranking commanders began to flee back, as soldiers threw their weapons and equipment. In order to flee, they did not care about the others and caused some to be stampeded over. Injuries and the death toll quickly mounted.
“Shit, Pyongyang is going to be finished like this.”
Yue Zhong glanced at the horde of Sea Mutant Beasts making their way over, and frowned, before making a decision, “Head to the northeast.”
Although there were some Mutant Beasts over at the northeast side, it was also where they were the weakest. Only by breaking out of the siege would Yue Zhong be able to lead his convoy back into China.
The machine gun vehicles and cannons began to fire out madly at the Mutant Beasts as they charged for the northeast.
With the dense barrage of metal, many low-level Mutant Beasts were shredded apart.
At the same time, White Bones charged first as the vanguard, twisting around with its countless bone blades. It managed to tear many Mutant Beasts into slices in showers of blood and flesh. Not a single beast was its match.
Yue Zhong pulled out 2 Electromagnetic Cannons and fired out constantly, blasting the heads of those Type 3 Mutant Beasts that got too close, fresh blood and brain matter splattering everywhere.
Yue Zhong and White Bones were handling the high-level Mutant Beasts, while the heavy firearms dealt with the low-level Mutant Beasts, easily clearing them.
Just like this, the convoy proceeded to slaughter their way through the Mutant Beast horde.
Just as they were about to break out of the siege successfully, a dozen huge Type 2 Profound Ice Fishes opened their mouths, firing out ice shards that fell like rain upon the convoy.
Under the bombardment of ice shards, a number of machine gun vehicles were slammed out of shape, some even nailed to the ground.
One of the fuel-carrying trucks was also struck by the ice shards, and fuel began to pour out of it.
Yue Zhong flipped his hands and a number of electromagnetic beams fired out onto the Type 2 Profound Ice Fishes, accurately slaughtering them.
After he dealt with them, he frowned and thought to himself, “Damn it, it’s not enough. If we blindly charge through, I can barely save a few.”
This time, the onslaught of the Mutant Beasts was not any less than that of the zombies in Seoul. Furthermore, they had countless abilities like ice, water, electricity, poison, bones, activating them could cause Yue Zhong greatly.
“We can only do it like this.”
He made the decision and activated his Summon Tamed Beast, and the Type 5 Mount Tai that had left them not long ago reappeared through a void.
When Type 5 Mount Tai appeared, it became like a huge steamroller that squashed all the Mutant Beasts. With every single step it took, an entire patch of Mutant Beasts would be squashed under it. As it swung its tail to and fro, a number of Pyongyang structures came crumbling down together with the Mutant Beasts.
When the ice shards, freezing breaths, lightning bolts, poison shots and bone spikes hit Mount Tai’s body, only the lightning bolts managed to cause some superficial charred marks. The freezing breaths might be able to cause a layer of ice over the affected part of Mount Tai, but the moment it moved, the tremor was enough to shatter the ice. The ice shards were unable to penetrate its body, not even making it past the scales. It was the same for the bone spikes and the poison globs.
Unless it was an attack by a Type 3 Mutant Beast and above, all other attacks posed no danger whatsoever to Mount Tai. Even the attacks of a Type 3 or Type 4 would just injure it slightly before its freakish regeneration ability helped to recover.
All of a sudden, Mount Tai let out an earthshaking roar towards the skies, as a powerful pressure emitted from its body outwards.
Facing that overwhelming pressure, the low-level Mutant Beasts were all terrified, quickly fleeing in all directions, not daring to attack Mount Tai any longer.
There was a huge difference in their levels after all. Mount Tai was a Type 5, and a water-based Mutant Beast to boot, hence it could naturally suppress the rest of them.
With that single roar, the convoy managed to break out successfully.
When the North Korean convoy saw Yue Zhong killing a path out, they changed directions from random fleeing to chasing after him.
One of the fleets managed to follow after and broke through the siege.
Another fleet made its way south.
Among the invading Mutant Beasts, the beautiful Sea Clan Queen looked on as Yue Zhong’s convoy broke through the siege, her eyes flashing with a strange glint. Her lips parted, and a strange whistle emitted.
Hearing that whistle, the Type 5 Mutant Sea Snake finally could not repress its killing intent any longer and charge towards Mount Tai.
Within the vast seas, every single Type 5 Mutant Beast was an overlord, possessing their own territory. They would not encroach on other territories easily. The moment they saw another similar-rank Beast, both parties would go all out in a clash, consuming the other in order to advance and evolve. Only Type 6 and Type 7 Mutant Beasts were able to suppress that instinct.
When the Type 5 Sea Snake saw Type 5 Mount Tai, it was filled with killing intent, and an urge to consume. If it was not for the Sea Clan Queen holding it back, it would have pounced forward long ago.
Along the way, the Mutant Beasts all parted to one side, allowing the Type 5 Sea Snake a clear path.
Those that did not manage to get out of the way were squashed.
Mount Tai could also feel the killing intent locked on itself, and after it swung its tail to flatten a group of Mutant Beasts into meat paste, it turned around and charged right at the Type 5 Mutant Sea Snake.
If it were a close-quarter combat, Mount Tai had a better chance of victory.
The Type 5 Sea Snake was obviously experienced, from far, it already opened its huge jaws to fire out its innate ability. A dense fog of poison shot out at Mount Tai like cannon balls.
When the balls of poison slammed into Mount Tai, they dispersed and started to corrode the scales of Mount Tai, giving off a sizzling sound. A huge chunk of flesh was also corroded away, and the worst thing was that its powerful regeneration ability could not do a thing.
Numerous balls slammed into Mount Tai’s body, and a number of smaller Mutant Beasts were unfortunate to be caught in the crossfire, instantly melting into puddles.
Facing the assault, Mount Tai roared out in agony, but it continued its charge at the Type 5 Sea Snake.
As it forcefully bore the attack and reached the Type 5 Sea Snake, its powerful tail slammed into the Sea Snake’s body violently.
The Type 5 Sea Snake shuddered violently and spat out a huge amount of blood.
It then immediately twisted its body to pounce on Mount Tai, coiling around it and constricting it, intending to squeeze Mount Tai to death.
Mount Tai also bit down viciously on the body of the Sea Snake, biting out a huge bloody chunk, as fresh blood flowed everywhere.
Chapter 759: Killing the Type 5 Sea Snake!
The usual chosen method of combat of these gigantic beasts was melee. It was simple, violent, no need for flair, nor skill, only their innate ability to kill.
The Type 5 Sea Snake continued to coil around Mount Tai, its body constricting tightly. The pressure was starting to show, as Mount Tai’s bones started to make some cracking noises.
As they were caught in this cruel exchange, a shadow charged over from the northern and southern side each.
The shadow from the north was precisely that absolutely beautiful Mermaid Queen with her voluptuous body. She rode the waves and came in front of the 2 entangled beasts.
She frowned, as a blue beam of light shot out from her forehead and landed on the head of Mount Tai.
Struck by the beam, Mount Tai’s eyes glazed over, and it relaxed slightly, allowing the Type 5 Sea Snake to coil even tighter. It resulted in more bones of Mount Tai being fractured, as it spat out a mouth of blood, its body trembling and its life in danger.
At this critical juncture, Yue Zhong wielded his Electromagnetic Cannon to fire out at the head of the Mutant Sea Snake without stop.
The shots blasted through the scales of the Mutant Sea Snake accurately, drawing blood and causing it agony.
However, it was not enough to pierce through the brain to kill it.
At the same time, Yue Zhong adjusted his aim to fire at the head of the Mermaid Queen.
The electromagnetic blasts shot towards the head of the Mermaid Queen without mercy.
Her gaze turned cold as she waved her jade-like hands, causing the wave beneath her to soar up, forming a powerful shield.
The electromagnetic beams that could pierce even the scales of the Type 5 Sea Snake were negated in front of the water shield, preventing any damage to the Mermaid Queen.
At the same time, there was a cold look on the face of the Mermaid Queen, as the waves beneath her surged up and after it disappeared, there were 9 bodies identical to her.
“I have to deal with her fast!”
Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed coolly and he activated his Shadow Steps, enhanced with the Dark Dou Qi. His speed instantly reached Mach-2, and with a wave of his hands, he sent out a blast of Devil Flames towards the Mermaid Queen.
The 9 mermaids waved their hands simultaneously, as a huge wave surged forth at the Devil Flames.
As the 2 abilities clashed, there was a strong surge of steam. The Devil Flames was actually smothered by the waves.
With the cover of the steam, Yue Zhong charged through the crowd, quickly slashing out 9 times at the Mermaid Queen.
As the 9 blade beams flashed by, all 9 bodies were cleaved in half.
A sudden sense of danger welled up, as a small hand burst out from beneath his feet, grabbing his right leg, and a sharp water arrow threatened to pierce his right foot.
When the sharp water arrow struck his foot, it was deflected and shattered immediately, blocked by the Type 5 Mutant Beast hide on him.
There was a sound of surprise, “Ah, your body defense is so strong. It doesn’t seem human-like. I admire your talents. Be my slave. As long as you’re willing, I can make you a king of men. Humans have gone on unbridled for far too long, polluting the environment and air. You people have angered the gods, and will definitely be suppressed and wiped out. As long as you’re my slave, you will be able to survive this.”
If it had been any other human, even when protected by a Type 5 Beast Hide, the resulting force would be enough to shatter the leg. However, in Yue Zhong’s case, it did not happen at all.
“Hmph! You want me to be your slave? I think it should be the other way round! Break for me!!”
Yue Zhong snorted coldly, and Devil Flames erupted from his right foot, burning the entire area into gas before he kicked out at the patch of seawater.
The patch of seawater churned suddenly, revealing the shape of the Mermaid Queen. The blue light between her brows shot out once more, hitting Yue Zhong’s foot.
His entire foot seemed to have been enveloped in an incredible weight, and he could not finish his kick. Instead, it was dragged down, causing a deep foot imprint.
With a thought from Yue Zhong, a strong gravitational force enveloped the Mermaid Queen.
Her body sunk immediately, and she twisted, trying to flee towards the back. She had numerous subordinates, and an endless horde of Mutant Beasts, there was no need for her to engage Yue Zhong in a life-and-death combat.
After Yue Zhong forced her back, he did not chase after all. He was also wary of her methods.
At the same time, there were many Mutant Beasts and Sea Clan members making their way over. He had no confidence in taking her out while she was fleeing.
With a tap of his foot, he turned into a flash that made for the 2 Type 5 Mutant Beasts still engaged in combat.
In merely 2 breaths, Yue Zhong had run along Mount Tai’s body and charged up to the head of the Type 5 Mutant Sea Snake.
He wielded his Flame Blade, pushing his Dark Dou Qi, and slashed down viciously on its head, directly penetrating its scales and tore a huge gash.
Yue Zhong then leaped into the wound and began to burrow in.
When the Type 5 Mutant Sea Snake took this blow, it felt the danger Yue Zhong posed to it. It was forced to let go of Mount Tai before it quickly trashed about against the surrounding buildings.
The recoil of the damage rippled through its flesh and muscles, squeezing Yue Zhong, and he felt his blood churn.
As he activated his Dark Dou Qi once more, the pressure was alleviated somewhat. If he only had the strength of a Type 4 Divine Warrior, he would have been half-dead, if not killed.
After regaining some breathing space, Yue Zhong started to use his Flame Blade to tear the insides up, shredding the Type 5 Mutant Sea Snake from within.
The Type 5 Sea Snake struggled frantically, trying to find another structure to smash itself against.
Mount Tai seized the opportunity to stomp on the Sea Snake while using its tail to slam into its body continuously. It also opened up its mouth to tear off chunks of flesh from the Sea Snake.
After swinging his blade for a long time, the head of the Sea Snake suddenly burst open, and Yue Zhong appeared, in his hands was a Type 5 Nucleus.
As he burrowed out, the Type 5 Sea Snake writhed for a while more before slumping to the ground lifelessly.
A huge amount of life force was absorbed into his God and Devil Imprint, nourishing and enhancing his body.
“Congratulations on reaching Level 91…”
“Congratulations on reaching Level 94, you have gained 2 attribute points to be allocated.”
Back on Earth, with the system, Yue Zhong gained another 8 attribute points for him to allocate.
He thought for a while, before pouring it all into his Agility. He still had to raise his reaction speed. The faster it was, the quicker he could make a right decision in any situation.
Yue Zhong swept a pleased glance across the body of the Type 5 Sea Snake, “Type 5 Mutant Beast! It used to be something out of my reach, and now, I can actually take one down! I’ve truly become stronger.”
Initially, when Yue Zhong saw any Type 5 Mutant Beast, any one of them could easily crush him to death Even if it allowed him to hack and slash, it would be hard to accomplish anything. Yet not, he could kill one without fear, it was proof of his increase in strength.
When the horde of Sea Clan saw the Type 5 Sea Snake’s death, their eyes flashed with disbelief.
A Type 5 Mutant Beast was usually an undefeatable existence within the sea. On land, other than nuclear weapons, most other military weapons would only be able to injure it. With its terrifying regenerative ability, even if it was heavily injured from cannons and heavy artillery, it would be fine after 2 minutes.
However, such an entity was actually slaughtered by Yue Zhong; this caused them to feel a tinge of fear and shock.
Yue Zhong saw how the Sea Clan soldiers had separated from the Mutant Beast horde in order to assist the Mermaid Queen, and ordered out, “Good! It’s our chance!! Mount Tai!! Let’s go!!”
The heavily injured Mount Tai turned to face the Sea Clan, disregarding its heavy injuries.
While Mount Tai’s speed was not much among the Type 5 Mutant Beasts, it was still faster than those ordinary Sea Clan soldiers. In barely a moment, it had already rushed through the ranks of the army, stomping and rampaging around, while swinging its tail, causing hundreds and thousands of them to be flattened into meat paste.
Chapter 760: Fall of Pyongyang!
Regardless if they were the 7m-tall Whale Warriors, or the small Prawn Warriors, under Mount Tai’s rampage, every single one of them was turned into meat paste. Not a single one of them could pose a danger to Mount Tai.
The Type 5 Mount Tai rampaged forward, its aim the Type 5 Mermaid Queen.
The Sea Clan guards of the Mermaid Queen came forward to attack Mount Tai, as numerous sharp ice shards, arrows, bone spikes and other abilities blasted towards its body. However, they were mostly blocked by the Type 5 scales.
As the experts continued to attack Mount Tai’s scales, they only served to injure it slightly, which healed extremely quickly.
There was no way of stopping it at all. The huge army of Sea Clan soldiers was like ants as they got stomped on. There was no way of stopping the advance of Mount Tai.
However, they continued to do their best, firing at Mount Tai and leaving little injuries.
After all, Type 5 Mutant Beasts were not entirely invincible, there was a limit to their regenerative powers as well. However, the stamina of the behemoths was seemingly endless, thus it was difficult to erode away.
200 beautiful mermaids came up to the frontline, opening their mouths and firing out blue beams that blasted towards Mount Tai.
Mount Tai’s body turned heavier and sluggish when those beams brushed past it, its movements turning slow. The wounds that it suffered from the assault of the Type 5 Sea Snake also started to rot, releasing a putrid stench.
On Mount Tai’s back, Yue Zhong wielded 2 electromagnetic cannons and fired them at the mermaids, blasting their heads away.
With the deaths of a dozen of them, the effect they had on Mount Tai was lessened considerably. Mount Tai then bellowed in rage, its huge tail swinging at those beautiful mermaids.
With a single sweep, a large number of mermaids, as well as their guards, were all flattened into meat paste.
Right at this moment, there was an enchanting and mysterious song, as it traveled throughout Pyongyang, all the Type 4 Mutant Beasts threw aside their prey and quickly swarmed over.
At the same time, over a dozen kilometers away, there was a Type 5 Mutant Beast which had the head of a crocodile, the body of a snake, the claws of a lizard, its body reaching a kilometer in length, and covered with a layer of green scales. The beast howled at the sky.
Yue Zhong stared at the swarming Type 4 Mutant Beasts and his eyes flashed with reluctance, “What a pity, seems like we’ll have to stop for today.”
At this time, Mount Tai had already suffered grievous injuries, and there was still poison not yet absolved within it. Its fighting strength was severely undermined. If it were up against another healthy Type 5 Mutant Beast, it would likely become food.
Other than that, there was the swarm of Type 4 Mutant Beasts that could pose a headache.
The might and pressure of Mount Tai could affect beasts of Type 3 and below, preventing them from acting against it. Even if they dared to act, it would only be ay 70%. However, it was different for Type 4 Mutant Beasts.
If over a hundred Type 4 Mutant Beasts came at once, then it was not possible for Mount Tai to hold its own fort against them.
Yue Zhong patted Mount Tai’s head and ordered, “Let’s go!”
Mount Tai quickly turned and left for the distance, stampeding over the low-level enemies.
Its body was over 2km, and while its movements were not exactly when it ran with all its strength, it was able to slaughter a path.
Yue Zhong was sprawled on Mount Tai’s back, using the System’s Electromagnetic Cannon to fire out, killing the Mutant Beasts.
After some tests, Yue Zhong discovered that when using the System’s equipment to kill enemies, the amount of life force absorbed from them would be greater than any other weapons. Hence, he liked to use the system equipment to kill.
One of the mermaids came up to the Mermaid Queen, asking respectfully, “Your Highness, should we chase?”
The eyes of the Mermaid Queen turned cold, as she spoke coldly, “No need, we can’t kill him anyway. He’s too strong, his power is above mine. I still need to undergo 2 more evolutions in order to kill him. Let him leave for today. Our mission today is to kill all the humans in this city, turning into a base for our Sea Clan. Our Clan should be the Overlord of this world, and we need to control both the land and seas.”
There was a look of yearning in the eyes of the young mermaid, as she retreated, “Yes!”
Without Yue Zhong’s obstruction, a huge number of Sea Clan members and Mutant Beasts managed to invade Pyongyang.
All the experts within Pyongyang had already left. There was no one left to obstruct these Mutant Beasts. They swarmed in and began their massacre of the humans.
The number of Sea Clan members continued to come on land, other than the Type 5 Crocodile-head, Snake-head strange entity, there was another Type 5 Crab Overlord that had a huge red shell, its size like a mountain, as well as a Type 5 Snapping Turtle that entered Pyongyang.
This time, the Sea Clan had activated a huge force to invade Pyongyang. A total of 4 Type 5 Mutant Beasts, with such a force, even North Korea before the apocalypse could not possibly hope to defend without the use of nuclear weapons.
Yue Zhong rode on Mount Tai’s back as they fled, and he discovered something wrong with Mount Tai. The infected wounds on Mount Tai were not healing, instead, they were turning worse. Black pus continued to leak out, dripping onto the ground, emitting a stench.
He frowned, “The innate ability of a Type 5 Mutant Beast is truly terrifying!”
Such abilities were vastly superior to most other Mutant Beasts. Especially those poison-types, should they land on the body of a Type 4 Mutant Beast, it would be enough to poison it to death. If used against same realm opponents, it would not be easy to get rid of the poison either.
Yue Zhong pondered a moment, before pulling out the nucleus he got from the Type 5 Sea Snake and threw it into Mount Tai’s mouth.
After gobbling it up, there were obvious changes after a while. The muscles that were rotting began to shudder, and those poisoned parts started to molt themselves, as new scales grew out to replace and protect the body. Its dimming and exhausted gaze also regained clarity.
Sitting atop Mount Tai, Yue Zhong managed to chase up to the convoy.
Currently, the convoy had become huge. There were many armored jeeps, tanks, infantry vehicles and other military vehicles following Yue Zhong’s convoy tightly.
Seeing Yue Zhong riding Mount Tai towards them, the North Korean troops were all wary and aimed their weapons at him, with expressions of animosity.
Yue Zhong stood on Mount Tai’s head as he eyed them coldly, barking out, “I’m Yue Zhong, the leader of this convoy. Who are you people? Why are you following us?”
As long as he made the thought, Mount Tai could easily flatten the military convoy.
The moment his words came out, Jung Ri Soo made use of a loudspeaker to translate his words.
From within the command vehicle, a young and beautiful woman of about 23 or 24 stepped out, she had a single ponytail, her face and features exquisite. There was also a valiant aura seen from between her brows. She smiled at Yue Zhong, “Hello, Mr. Yue Zhong, I’m the current highest commanding officer of the North Korean Army, Kim Ji Yeon, I’m pleased to meet you.’
At the same time, another 8 military men stepped out, on either side of her, staring at Yue Zhong warily.
“North Korean Army? Seems like this woman is pretty capable? She should be the daughter of another official.” Yue Zhong assessed her carefully and thought.
North Korea was a shut-off and backward society, and the women were not likely to have high status. It was incredibly difficult for a woman to have her own troops if she did not have some form of royal blood.
Yue Zhong spoke coldly, “Hello.”
Kim Ji Yeon continued to smile warmly, “We’re thankful for your help, allowing us to survive that ordeal. I, Kim Ji Yeon, will remember this favor. In the future, if there’s a chance, I will repay this favor.”
Yue Zhong nodded but did not pay it much heed.
Right now, North Korea was in the same situation as South Korea, both of them had their territories invaded. All Kim Ji Yeon could rely on were the people beside her, which was not much to Yue Zhong.
