Chapter 13: Fell Into Great Danger

Chapter 13: Fell Into Great Danger  
Edited by Chubby

“Then, do you still recognize the road? It is all dark outside!” Chu Yunsheng said.
If this young man recognized the road, compared to him running around without a specific direction, the chance of success was much higher.
    
The young man nodded his head. “Yes!  Originally,  we had 30 people. After we were trapped here, we made a few attempts trying to escape from there. But every time, we were pushed back by the insects. Oh! I forgot to ask you, which way were you coming from?”

“From the east, but I didn't see any insect!” Chu Yunsheng said without any hesitation.
  
The young man looked dejected. “The one you killed was the one lurking at the east. We were starving, and early on we tried to escape from the east where there was only one insect. But we were pushed back by the insect again, and we didn't expect that the insect would chase us. Then you saw everything happened next.”

Chu Yunsheng nodded his head, that was why there was a half body outside.  Perhaps it was one of the group members.

“Young man, let’s make a deal. You take me to the south where the supermarket is, and also to the bridge in the east. Once I am done, I'll escort you to where the army is. How does that sound?” Chu Yunsheng needed this young man to lead the way to the insects.

“No problem, but Feifei...” The man answered readily once he heard what Chu Yunsheng said. After what happened to the insect, and to Diao Dingguo, this young man had blind trust in Chu’s abilities.

Chu Yunsheng thought for a minute, then said. “Let Feifei and the others hide in the opposite building first. Let’s deal with those two insects in the south, it is much safer here.”

Inside the room, Diao Dingguo heard Chu Yunsheng and rest of people planning to go. He hysterically pleaded for forgiveness, and begged Chu Yunsheng take him with them. but Chu Yunsheng did not turn around.

It was still dark outside the building. Lights flashed from a far distance from time to time. People could barely walk without bumping into a wall. With the help of night vision goggles, Chu Yunsheng quickly crossed the street with the group of five people. He helped to hide the two men and two women on the third floor of a building on the opposite street.

In order to show his sincerity, Chu Yunsheng took out three pieces of bread, and said. "These two pieces are to be shared between you four people. Young man, this third piece is just for you. I, Chu Yunsheng, although I am not a big man, I am a man of my word.  As long as you help me, I will escort you to the military camp.”

Chu Yunsheng gave out his name, but right now, these people's interests were clearly not in his name. They were starving for a long time. When they saw the fragrant bread appear in front of them, they were like a man who has not seen a woman for decades, and the bread was like a naked woman. Those evil eyes would make people feel that if it wasn't that they were afraid of Chu Yunsheng’s  anomalous power, they probably started to grab it already.
 
Chu Yunsheng was surprised to find out that, when the young man took the bread, he did not eat it straight away. He carefully placed it in the gap between his chest and clothes.

Though Chu Yunsheng could see that the young man’s hunger was not much less than the others, his thyroid moved as he swallowed his saliva.

The young man was happy after hiding the bread. "Brother Chu,” the young man said,  “my name is Zhang Han. You can just call me ‘Xiao’(1) Han. Are we going right now?”

Chu Yunsheng asked, "You are not hungry? Don't you want to eat something before we leave?"

The boy patted the area where he hid the bread smiled, and said, "As long as I keep it here, I am half full!"

"Well, let’s go then!" Chu Yunsheng did not bother to ask him again. He was more concerned about the speed of his Qi cultivation.

With Zhang Han's lead, plus Chu Yunsheng’s night vision goggles, two people soon approached the Hualian supermarket. Through the night vision goggles, it was clear that a red shelled insect was wandering on the street, and another quietly lurking in the supermarket inside.

All of sudden, Chu Yunsheng felt his heart beating very hard and very fast. The Heaven and Earth Yuan Qi in this area suddenly fluctuated a little bit, but soon returned to normal. He looked around, but he did not find any problem, so he did not pay much attention to the strange feeling.  This was a great chance, and he didn’t really want to waste it.

Zhang Han was in a small building on the side.  Chu Yunsheng leaned against the wall, slowly moving forward. An arrow shortly emerged around the corner, aimed at the Red Shelled insect which was slowly wandering around.

Whoosh!

The crossbow shot out the frost arrow straight away. The high-speed moving arrow made a sharp scream when piercing through the air. It was like a grim reaper locked on the red-shelled insect!

The Red Shelled insect did what it could do the most in this short amount of time, and spat out corrosive saliva towards the frost arrow.
 
But Chu Yunsheng's arrow was too fast. With the help of talisman and Yuan Qi, the frost arrow split the corrosive saliva in half, and froze the whole Red Shelled insect and its saliva. It maintained its spitting position even when frozen.

Could it be that the frost arrow was more powerful now? But Chu Yunsheng had no time to think about the strength of his frost arrow. Inside Hua Lian supermarket there was another insect. It seemed that the insect inside the store was not moving even after hearing everything happening outside.

‘This sneaky bastard!’  If it wasn't coming out, he had to go in!

He quickly used the long sword to finish the insect frozen outside, then stored it in his Yuan Fu. Chu Yunsheng did not have time to use She Yuan Fu to absorb the insect’s Yuan Qi, because the one inside the store could come out at any time!

When he got inside the supermarket, one shadow appeared in his night vision goggles.

Wait,  no, two… there are three insects hiding in the market, coming from all three different directions. Chu Yunsheng was surrounded.

It scared the hell out of him!

Three insects, with his level of shooting skill, he would definitely have to fight with the Red Shelled insects in close range.
 
But he didn't know any powerful close combat techniques. Even the basic sword fighting techniques required him to be at Yuan Tian stage two.

If there was one insect, he could use Liu Jia Yuan Fu with the long sword and probably kill it. But now he was attacked by three Red Shelled insects at the same time. he didn't have any chance of winning!
  
‘Calm down! I have to calm myself down! There is definitely a way!’

Looking at three Red Shelled insects that slowly approached in the darkness, Chu Yunsheng knew that he had to make a decision now! Otherwise, once the insects got into attack range, their speed was beyond anything anyone could imagine!

The exit had been blocked by one of the insects, and he was slowly backing off, trying to find another way to escape. But now his back was against the wall, and there was no way out.
 
Chu Yunsheng has never fallen into such a dangerous situation! He finally developed a strong desire to survive and he released uncontrollable growls!

Since he had no more space to back off further, and there was no way out then: let's fight! Let's fight until I die! 

Chu Yunsheng felt pumped up, and his determination was as firm as steel. He stepped his left foot forward, turned right, and held his arrow steadily. The cold arrowhead carried his death wish as it pointed at the Red Shelled insect coming from the exit!

Whoosh.

Three Red Shelled insects increased their speed at almost the same time when Chu Yunsheng shot the arrow!

Chu Yunsheng knew that, no matter what the result was, he would still need to fight with at least two insects. He had to rely on Liu Jia Yuan Fu’s protection to protect him from this attack!

The frost arrow directly hit the Red Shelled insect in the center of its body. At the same time, the attacks from the other two insects arrived, aiming toward his back and his left shoulder.

They did not use claws, nor corrosive saliva, they simply used their razor-sharp legs, combined with their weight, and slumped their bodies directly onto Chu Yunsheng from mid-air!

Chu Yunsheng felt sharp pain, as if his heart was tearing apart, and the bones had been pierced through. The pain spread from the back to all the nerves across his body.

The Red Shelled insect’s attack did not break Liu Jia Yuan Fu’s strong protection, but the force of the impact caused Chu Yunsheng to have a serious injury.

The impact force pushed Chu Yunsheng tumbling towards the door. With just one step, he could get out of this supermarket, but he didn't do it. If he left his back to two Red Shelled insects, he knew that his running speed couldn’t compete with the insects.

Liu Jia Yuan Fu could barely stop the Red Shelled insects’ attack at the moment. But Chu Yunsheng felt that the Liu Jia Yuan Fu began to crack, it probably could only stop one more insects' combination attack!

He had to kill another insect. Chu Yunsheng’s Yuan Fu could sustain him for some time if he was handling one insect. He definitely could not let them attack at the same time again!

There was no time to reload the crossbow, he threw it away when he was tumbling on the ground!

It was the moment between life and death. The desire to live has evoked all the potential that he never had before!

While tumbling, he endured the pain in his body. He pulled out the pistol. His hand clenched around it, and his foot landed on the door frame. His body firmly stopped on the ground, and then, he frantically shot the insect nearest to him!

The gun was enchanted with the fire element, and it was as powerful as the crossbow. The only difference was that the Red Shelled insect also had the fire element, so it was less effective than the crossbow.

Chu Yunsheng did not care it was hit or not, he just kept shooting. The bullets carried the fire element; burning in the air. They were like beautiful flame flowers blossoming on the Red Shelled insect.  On the market’s shelf, on the wall at back. Chu Yunsheng felt like the time was frozen, but he still kept pulling the trigger.

Life or death, it all depended on if he could kill this insect!
