Chapter 22 Revealing the combat armor

Chapter 22 Revealing the combat armor

Edited by DQ

Two hours later, Chu Yunsheng returned to his flat in building no.8 of City Housing estate. He was exhausted, he used the unloaded gun to heat up a bucket of water he stored, then washed himself several times.

The power of Li Huo fu was beyond his imagination, only a fifth of its full power still burned all the tentacles to ashes!

He also realised that he didn’t kill the monster that was hidden inside the pool. Just based on the amount of yuan qi inside a piece of organism he brought back, it proved that the tentacle monster and red shell insect were not on the same level.

After he injured the tentacle monster, he successfully escaped from the hospital. The tentacle monster did not chase him, probably because it knew he was not an easy target.

After Chu Yunsheng gave the prescription drugs to the female teacher, he decided to take some time to recover. He now needed a good sleep, to forget about everything and stop doing anything.

He had another dream again. This time in the dream, he was chased by a group of red shell insects, then he jumped into a large pit which had a lot of naked women inside. He panicked and tried to jump out but found that some thin tentacles were tightly wrapped around his two feet.

Then he woke up, sweating all over. He sat by a window, lit a candle, opened his notebook and thought for a moment before starting to write.

After he wrote down all the information he knew about the two monsters, he closed the notebook. This dark age was even more dangerous now. Just the red shell insect alone was already hard to deal with. Now there was an even more terrifying monster, it was like adding insult to injury.

If he wanted to survive in this sinister world, the more information he had about the monsters, the safer he would be. So he decided to use the notebook to keep all the information he knew.

Perhaps there might be more monsters that appear, and even more powerful creatures. If he did not become stronger as soon as possible, he would be dead on the street at any time!

Although this time he was almost killed again, but it did not mean he did not get anything. Not only did he get a lot of precious drugs, he also got to see a more powerful creature, which reminded him how weak he was. It provided him with a motivation for his future qi cultivation.

Another thing was, Chu Yunsheng absorbed four units of yuan qi from the monster’s organ that he brought back, which replenished the yuan qi he lost during the fight. At the same time, he also understood how powerful that monster was.

At the moment with his ability, he was not strong enough to confront this monster, until he got stronger then he could try to kill it. Now he should just focus on collecting the red shell insects. Chu Yunsheng couldn't wait to wear the powerful combat armor!

Chu Yunsheng felt a lot more comfortable both mentally and physically after he had changed into new clothes. He started up his motorcycle and disappeared into the dark.

Chu Yunsheng felt that time was even more limited now. While he was still in the housing estate, he heard from people that the army had finally decided to abandon the city. At the moment a large number of troops were still fighting with the insects in the city. The majority of the red shell insects were attracted by the military troops. If they abandon the city, those insects would spread out, and at that time, he would not even have a chance of encountering a group of three red shell insects or less.

He only had one complete She yuan fu left. With 41 insect bodies, he still needed 19  more! It was not a large amount, but he was still worried. It was not enough just to depend on the level 1 Liu Jia yuan fu’s shield, he needed to hurry up and finish the combat armor.

The place that Chu Yunsheng chose to hunt red shell insects was a bridge used to connect the  West district and East district. Because the bridge had troops heavily stationed, from time to time there were helicopters that flew by. Insects had been trying to capture the bridge, but the military was heavily armed so they did not succeed.

However, with more and more insects, and less and less ammunition, it was just a matter of time before the insects captured this place. Chu Yunsheng was hiding in a residential building not far the bridge, so sometimes he could encounter one or two red shell insects retreating from the front line. Of course, he would not let those insects escape, those injured insects were his best targets.

If there weren’t any insects passing by, he would practice his shooting skill. His aim was still very bad, he could hit some non-moving targets, but unless the insects were running in a straight line, it would be extremely lucky for him to hit.

Practicing using the crossbow is a very boring thing, but fortunately, the crossbow is more stable than a regular bow. As long as the person is calm and the body is steady then the accuracy will improve. If a person was not calm nor steady, it was common they would miss.

Fortunately, red shell insects were huge, so long as a frost arrow slightly touched their body, it would immediately unleash the frost element, so his success rate increased a lot.

Chu Yunsheng spent five days in total to collect the rest of the 19 red shell insects, roughly 4 of them per day, this was because he feared to engage more than 3 red shell insects. But he was still quite happy, now he had all the materials to craft the combat armour. When he completed it, his qi cultivation speed should increase.

Returning to his old place, Chu Yunsheng locked all the door and windows. According to the methods described in the ancient book, a complete combat armor not only included the body, shoulder, arms and legs, they even included the head, hands and feet. In short, each body part must be wrapped in the armor in order to achieve total protection.

The outline of the armour was a smooth line, Chu Yunsheng chose the most awesome style because of his vanity, and of course, it had to be practical as well. After he drew the combat armour yuan fu, he suddenly thought, his sword still could not penetrate the red shell insect’s shell. If he drew the sword on the combat armour yuan fu, he could obtain a good sword as well. He was not just dreaming because he had seen a similar combat armour style mentioned in the book before he just was not sure he had enough materials to complete the entire set. He was not sure if it would be successful, but he still decided to try his luck.
The three-dimensional diagram was complete, now he needed to draw the fourth-dimensional channel. The instructions to link yuan fu to the diagram, Chu Yunsheng did not really understand how the method worked. so he just simply followed the step by step instructions detailed in the ancient book.

Now he needed to draw some incantations and complete the yuan fu seal. The whole process consumed 8 units of yuan qi in total, it seemed like improving his qi concentration to 9 units before making the combat armor was a good decision.
After he had prepared everything, he restored his yuan qi in full then activated the combat armor yuan fu. The yuan fu immediately projected the diagram into mid-air and started slowly spinning. It shone a light beam downwards, illuminating a round circle on the floor. Chu Yunsheng immediately threw an insect shell onto that spot. After a while, the insect’s shell turned into sparkles and flew into the diagram. Other than that, nothing happened.

Chu Yunsheng knew the diagram needed a lot of materials to refine, so he kept throwing insect shells into the circle. With more and more shells that he threw in, the armor diagram started to materialize from the head down. When Chu Yunsheng had placed about forty-six shells, the whole combat armour appeared, but the sword was still only partially complete. Chu Yunsheng tried adding two more shells, but he was surprised to find that the armour portion was still able to absorb the shell, but the sword portion did not.

What was going on?
