Chapter 15 A Combat Armour

Chapter 15 - A Combat Armour
Edited by Joseph

After having his Yuan Qi slightly restored, Chu Yunsheng took out the red shell insect's body and used the She Yuan Fu to absorb Yuan Qi from all four bodies.

At the moment, there are five flame patterns on the She Yuan Fu. Chu Yunsheng cannot wait until he kills another one to completely fill up She Yuan Fu, as in the dark Shen Cheng city, dangers can occur everywhere in every minute.
He immediately decided to use the She Yuan Fu without any hesitation. After he transferred  Yuan Qi into his body, he discovered that the concentration of Yuan Qi inside his body has increased a lot.  With the volume he has right now, he could freeze 7 red shell insects.  If he counts the qi consumption when freezing one red shell insect as one unit,  his Yuan Qi concentration would have one unit left at the end! Also, the numbers of flame patterns that disappeared from the She Yuan Fu wasn't just three, it was three and a half!

Before, when he fully restored his Yuan Qi, it only consumed three flame patterns and based on what he discovered, it clearly means that his Yuan Qi concentration has increased!

In the first time he cultivated Yuan Qi, Chu Yunsheng roughly calculated that the concentration unit he had was around 5 to 6 unit. Until now he has done roughly 8 or 9 times of qi cultivation cycles, so it is most likely that when he completes another 9 cycles, his qi concentration will be increasing one more unit as well!

There are 81 cycles in total and that means he could have his Yuan Qi increased by 9 units. In other words, when he reaches the peak status of Yuan Tian stage one, he could freeze 15 red shell insects!
When he breaks through Yuan Tian stage two barriers, and he learns the close combat skill sets, he will easily get away from attacks of large numbers of red shell insects!
Chu Yunsheng smiled with confidence!

After the Yuan Qi was restored, he made another She Yuan Fu. It consumed 6 units of Yuan Qi, and as expected he still has one unit of Yuan Qi remaining inside his body. This kind of feeling was so great!

As Old She Yuan Fu couldn't absorb Yuan Qi anymore,  he transferred the Yuan Qi from the remaining half flame pattern into his body. He now has 4 units of Yuan Qi.

Originally he wanted to keep the old She Yuan Fu for an emergency, but then again, he thought of the dangerous environment he was at this moment. He abandoned the idea of staying in his room and continued to practice for a long time.

Liu Jia Yuan Fu can´t be used anymore;  It consumed him two units of Yuan Qi to make a new one.  The Yuan Fu on the crossbow and the gun still have half of Yuan Qi remaining, so they can be used for some time.

After he finished everything, his Yuan Qi went back to two units again. He will have to spend almost 7 days to fully restore the Yuan Qi again.

During the time Chu Yunsheng was recovering himself in the room, the food Zhang Han took back was already finished by those five people. Chu Yunsheng also gave them some biscuits and drinks he took from the market.

Chu Yunsheng was surprised to find out that the bruises Zhang Han had on his face were not because of the food, it was because of a pack of sanitary towels! It was because that fei fei girl is on her period!

This guy really is a love fool! Chu Yunsheng signed.

Chu Yunsheng has analysed the fight, he had a lack of close combat skill, but he can't do anything about it at the moment. If he was a self-awakening person,  he could have a close combat skill set. But for now, he has to wait until he reaches Yuan Tian stage two. According to the ancient book, if he learned the powerful sword fighting techniques, he will become unstoppable.

He was also concerned about Liu Jia Yuan Fu’s defence shield. Although it can easily stop one insect attack, but if more than two insects attack him, Liu Jia Yuan Fu’s defence will be weakened, unless he could make a level two Liu Jia Yuan Fu. But from  Liu Jia Yuan Fu's level two description he only understands less than half of it. Even if he wanted to use 6 units of his Yuan Qi to make it, he still wouldn't know how to make it.

What should I do now?

He looked at the perfectly aligned 6 insects bodies, all of them were killed by himself. He killed the first one at his flat, the second one was killed when he met Zhang Han, and the rest of them were killed in the last fight.

He suddenly had an idea! The armour of the Red Shell insect is rock-hard, so why not use it as material to make a set of armour?

On the ancient book, there is one type of Yuan Fu named Zhan Jia (combat armour) Yuan Fu. It is a level two Yuan Fu, and it requires the practitioner to draw a complete armour diagram on it. After that is done, the Zhan Jia (combat armour)Yuan Fu will automatically absorb all the material it needs.

Even Though Chu Yunsheng already knew how to make this Yuan Fu, in the past, he did not have any materials or even heard of those materials mentioned in the ancient book, so he did not pay attention to it, but one of those materials is animals bones and shells. Now that he has the body of the Red Shell insect, he could try to make combat armour!

The combat armour requires a lot of raw materials, and in the process of refining, only six bodies are far away from enough. If he waits until his Yuan Qi increased another two units then start to make combat armour yuan fu, he will first be able to store more bodies of insects and second, be able to prepare enough She Yuan Fu as a backup. By the time he made another Yuan Fu combat armour, those backups could be used to restore his Yuan Qi.
Two units of Yuan Qi requires eighteen cycles, so he needs to kill at least 54 Red Shell insects! Even if the number is quite big Chu Yunsheng was confident as long as he does not encounter the same situation like the last fight.

Since the shell is useful, Chu Yunsheng immediately thought that other parts of insects may also be useful in some way. For example, the very sharp legs of the Red Shell insect could be used to make an arrow’s head, it could make crossbow more powerful.

The corrosive secretions inside the insect’s body could be collected with the insect’s internal organs. In the future, he could use yuan fu to refine it, making it become an even more corrosive venom.

Chu Yunsheng quickly dismembered the Red Shell insects’ bodies,. With the help of Liu Jia Yuan fFu, he does not need to worry about the toxic and corrosive secretions.

The shell of the insect can be used to make armour. Claws and legs can be used to make arrows, secretions can be used to make poisonous venom, all it left was just some meat which seemed to not have any use. But Chu Yun Sheng still felt that the insect’s muscles are very powerful and they might not be as simple as they look They might be useful in the future, so he stored them inside Yuan Fu as well.

Of course, Chu Yun Sheng will never ever dare to eat that meat, who knows what will happen if he ate the meat? After he finished separating the bodies, Chu Yun Sheng seemed to have found new objectives. If he wants to survive this horror city, he must become more powerful.
God did not give him a self-awakening talent, but the ancestors left him a thousand years old ancient book. With the help of this ancient book, his ability is not worse than those self-awakening people!

If reaching Yuan Tian stage two is his intermediate goal, then the long, boring and difficult qi cultivation, and the possibility of making the combat armour are his short-term objectives. He really needs to speed up,

Chu Yunsheng stood on the roof, looking at the boundless dark sky. Three days ago he killed the two insects on the west side of the bridge. He sent the love fool Zhang Han and other people to the army base on the opposite side of the bridge, as for the possibility that they can get the protection from the army or not, that was no longer his problem.

Food has become a new crisis in this horror city, and many people that can not endure the hunger start to frequently appear on the streets. Sometimes people are beating each other just for a right to search supermarkets like “hao de convenience store”.  Its cruelty is not much less than from the Red Shell insect.
There was a fight across the street right below where Chu Yunsheng was right now. One side has a police pistol, the other side had nothing but they have more people. The fight was so violent and it was just for a  rice shop, Chu Yunsheng even saw an old man equip at least three steel knives guarding the door.

When the side that did not have a gun broke through the door, due to the sheer number of people they had, a giant red shell insect appeared on the street. No one at this point hesitated, no one stopped, everyone chose to run away at that moment. They just had one pistol, if they chose to fight back, the result is definitely death!

How can a human running speed compete with the speed of a Red Shell insect!?

The Red Shell insect jumped into the crowd, in its eyes, these cowardly human were just a bunch of prey. But it did not know that there is always a bigger fish, as a grey shadow fell from the sky, accompanied by the freezing cold Yuan Qi from the frost arrows!
