Chapter 21 Injured tentacle monster


Chapter 21 Injured tentacle monster
Edited by DQ

Chu Yunsheng didn't pause, he immediately put the crossbow on his back and took out the gun.

From past experiences, he knew that no matter how dangerous the situation was, even if the sky was falling or the earth cracked, he shouldn't panic. If he panicked, then it was [Game Over]!

At this moment, the monster was blocking the exit, he had to fight his way out. It didn't matter what kind of monster it was - if he wanted to survive, he had to fight to the end!

The crossbow was not a very effective weapon to be used against this type of thin and long monster. Not only was it difficult to aim, even if it hit the monster the frost arrow would probably only be able to freeze part of it.

Although bullets might not be able to hit the monster as well, the fire that the bullets unleashed could burn everything. He hoped that the fire could stop the monster for a while.

Chu Yunsheng didn't wait until the monster attacked. He pulled the trigger straight away. He didn't think that this animal would be friendly towards him.

The monster easily dodged the bullets and quickly moved back into the corridor. At the same time, three tentacles, each as thick as a human leg slithered through the air heading towards him from deep inside the corridor.

Chu Yunsheng didn't really know what to do, so he tried to scare the tentacles away by lighting up the surrounding using the flame from the gun.

In order to defend itself, two of soft tentacles immediately split out. They rapidly waved in mid-air trying to block the bullets for the last tentacle. A heavy smell of burnt meat soon filled up in the corridor but it still didn't retreat.

The tentacle monster was very agile, especially the one that was protected by the other two. It was like a snake, quickly approaching Chu Yunsheng and wrapping around him.
  
Chu Yunsheng relied on Liu Jia Yuan Fu’s protection and the Yuan Qi inside his body. He broke free several times. but then it instantly wrapped around him again.

When the fourth and fifth tentacles appeared, Chu Yunsheng lost his hope. He was tightly wrapped around by the tentacles without any gaps, and his gun was completely empty. His hands were tightly wrapped by the monster. There was no way for him to replace the clip.

The tentacle monster probably thought that Chu Yunsheng didn't have any resistance ability, it started to drag him back to the ward inside the corridor.

Chu Yunsheng tried to halt the panic in his mind, he tried to find a way to escape as fast as he could, but he could not find any.

The hospital wards were located in a four-stories high building. The building was very wide.  When Chu Yunsheng was dragged inside, he found that all three floors had already been destroyed. The walls were spread with a sticky substance, as if the whole building was glued together. It was like a mossy cave glowing in a dim green light.

Moreover, The wall was full of naked women stuck to it. Chu Yunsheng was so shocked that he could not even close his mouth. Some of the bodies were still wearing shreds of patients or nurses clothes.

Chu Yunsheng finally realized why he felt something wrong when he was in the hospital hall. It was too clean, he did not even see a single body in the hall area! Red shelled insects only liked eating brains, they would discard the rest of the body. So the hospital should have many bodies with empty skulls, but when he was in the hall, he did not see any of them!

Chu Yunsheng felt a chill run down his spine. ‘So this is the place where the missing bodies went, but it seems that all of them were already dead!’

Suddenly, he saw a thin almost transparent tube, the size of which was as big as a finger, inserted into the back of a girl, and then it held onto her while she walked away from him.

It was exactly like the naked woman who he had seen before. She was controlled by this monster. Chu Yunsheng could clearly see that her eyes were as empty as the woman he saw before.

So this was what was controlling her! No wonder why he felt that the naked woman was fluttering like a ghost when she walked. So that scream was from this monster when he shot that arrow!

At this moment, Chu Yunsheng was more curious than frightened! What exactly was this monster?

In the middle of the building, it had formed a pool of sticky substance. Inside the pool, were the human’s flesh and blood.

From time to time some bubbles popped up, sometimes a human body curled up in a transparent mucosa like a pupa popped up. The human body inside seemed like it was melting.

Each pupa had a different thickness of tube attached. Most of the tubes were connected to a five-meter tall tree-like organism in the center of the building. It was covered with a sticky substance, the other tubes were connected to a small cylindrically shaped organism around the giant one in the center.

The largest cylindrical organism was at least three to four meters in diameter, covered with strangely shaped tentacles, they were the same tentacles that had wrapped around Chu Yunsheng.

All the pipes and tentacles seemed to be very busy at doing something. Only when Chu Yunsheng was dragged near the monster, did he find out that all the women that were hung on the wall had been inserted with the monster’s tubes in their lower part of their bodies, and there was disgusting sticky liquid flowing through the tubes.

Some women’s bellies were swollen, and some of their bellies had a big hole. A lot of cylindrical monsters as big as a human palm were crawling out of the hole from those bellies, and quickly used their long tentacles starting to eat those women.

‘It was breeding! Massive breeding!’ Chu Yunsheng was shocked!

He guessed that the pool in the middle was used to feed these monsters.

“What the hell are those things?”

Chu Yunsheng was terrified, he was struggling but still could not stop being dragged closer and closer to the pool.

Suddenly a tentacle as thick as a human thigh appeared in front of him. The tip of the tentacle started to split, wider and wider until it became a huge mouth.

It then swallowed Chu Yunsheng from his head, and as it engulfed him bit by bit, the tentacle started to get bigger and bigger until it covered Chu Yunsheng entirely.

After the monster swallowed Chu Yunsheng,  it gushed out a large amount of sticky substance spreading around Chu Yunsheng’s body.

Chu Yunsheng could clearly feel that the Yuan Qi inside Liu Jia Yuan Fu started to spread across his body, even across the night vision goggles.

However, he could not breathe. If he could not get out soon, he was going to suffocate to death!

"Pop!" The monster spat Chu Yunsheng into the pool after it wrapped Chu Yunsheng into a pupa-shaped mucosa. A thin tube simultaneously tried to insert itself into Chu Yunsheng’s head, but it was deflected by Chu Yunsheng’s Yuan Qi.

Chu Yunsheng’s face was extremely red due to the lack of oxygen.  But when he saw the tube was deflected, he immediately realized that it was his chance!

Under the protection of the Liu Jia Yuan Fu, the erosive liquid only caused him to suffocate, but it could not do any damage to him. Even his hands, clothes, pistols, etc were all safe at the moment.

Chu Yunsheng could take out his sword and break the pupa open, but he knew that he could not run too far. Those tentacles would still drag him back.

His only way to escape was to try to get close to the largest tentacle monster which could be their queen, injure it, and then wait for the opportunity to escape!

After the thin tube was deflected, the pupa he was in was also pushed closer towards the giant tentacle monster.

He passed many pupas, most of them only had human bones inside.
Chu Yunsheng was holding his breath, luckily he was at Yuan Tian stage one, so he could hold breath for a while.

He secretly changed the gun clip and checked his ammunition amount. The bullets were running out, he only had less than thirty left.

He then took out the She Yuan Fu and slowly restored his Yuan Qi bit by bit. He did not dare to transfer Yuan Qi to his body too quickly. He feared of being found out by the monster, then it would be game over for him.

When Chu Yunsheng completely reached the bottom of the giant monster, the monster still didn't realize what he was doing.

“One... Two... Three!”

Chu Yunsheng gathered all his strength and waited for the moment to attack. He was extremely focused.

“Now!”

Having restored six units of Yuan Qi, he quickly shot three bullets with no holds barred, each bullet consuming a unit of Yuan Qi.

The pupa instantly broke open, the bullets with blazing flames flying towards the monster.

At the same time, Chu Yunsheng hastily took a deep breath, he was almost suffocated!

The monster had an energy shield, but Chu Yunsheng already thought of it. Even the red-shelled insect had a shield, let alone this even more terrifying creature. It definitely would have one as well.
  
“Woo... Woo…” the monster was enraged by his sudden attack!  It waved all its tentacles in mid-air then rapidly lunged towards Chu Yunsheng!

The bullets were spinning on the monster’s energy shield, but the flames were still burning, and it seemed to have weakened the monster's shield.

Chu Yunsheng didn't wait for the tentacle to reach him, he immediately fired two more shots.

The flaming bullets finally penetrated the shield and the monster’s skin! They violently collided into the monster’s internal organs and exploded. A gaping hole was made by the explosion on the monster’s sticky body and its organs burst out.

“Woo...woo!” the monster was screaming and started to try and sink his body. Chu Yunsheng suspected that he seriously injured it. It was now the time for him to escape!

One of the monster’s internal organs flew towards him, hit his head and hung on the night vision goggles. Chu Yunsheng instantly felt that even this small piece of the organ had more Yuan Qi than several insects combined!

But there was no time for him to think. The monsters had started to surround him. Many small monsters were crawling on top of giant tentacles, and opened their mouth screaming.

Chu Yunsheng didn't hesitate. He took out his last weapon, Li Huo Fu.

This was a level three offensive Yuan Fu, and because he was only at Yuan Tian stage one, he couldn't unleash its full power. If he used it now, it would really be a waste, but he didn't have a choice!

Looked at the charging monsters, Chu Yunsheng quickly passed his Yuan Qi into the Li Huo Fu and activated it!

Li Huo Fu projected a “fire” pattern in mid-air and started to gather a tremendous amount of Yuan Qi towards it.

Suddenly he heard a sharp noise, the pattern started to break and flames appeared inside the building. It came out nowhere and then as if God was casting the fire magic from the sky, it was raining flames inside the building!
