Chapter 26 Thugs again

Chapter 26 Thugs again
Edited by Einstro;

On the way back to his flat, Chu Yunsheng had seen many groups of people that were too nervous to stay together. The faintest sign of danger would cause them to blindly run everywhere.  It was simply pure chaos.

Chu Yunsheng rushed back to his flat. On the road, he encountered two insects and defeated them swiftly.

There were many people gathered together In front of Building No.8, holding lit torches. Ms. Zhang from the neighborhood committee and a man from the tenth floor were standing on top of a Volkswagen Passat.

Chu Yunsheng deactivated his armor just as he got approached, he heard the tenth-floor neighbor shout. “ Everyone! Do not panic! Kids, elderly and women walk in the middle. Men walk in the front and back, take any weapons, any food, water or any other valuables that you have stored in your homes! Anyone who still has petrol in their car and would like to leave with us, please follow us. If you do not want to, please say it now! We hope that everyone can work together, only when we stay together, will there be any hope!”

“Sun Darui! I agree, we should act together!”

“As long as we can keep the kids safe, we will do anything!”

“Me too, fuck it! At the worst let’s die with the insect!”



Everyone was talking all at once, only a few people had different opinions, but most of them agreed with Sun Darui.

Chu Yunsheng guessed that other people might have considered him as an adult male, so they asked him to join the group. But, Chu Yunsheng had his own plan, so he lied and said that he joined another group already. He had just come back to get his stuff.

He actually did not really have much stuff to take, only some daily necessities. Soon, he had packed up all the stuff he needed.

Before he left the flats, Chu Yunsheng was filled with emotions. In this room, he sensed Yuan Qi for the first time, successfully made  Yuan Fu for the first time, killed an insect for the first time and even the first time he built an armor and sword… So many first times, it seemed as if this room was his starting point for the dark age!

Moreover, Chu Yunsheng seemed to have a strange feeling, that one day he would return to this room.

This feeling was too inexplicable. So Chu Yunsheng just shook his head, stepped out of Building No.8 and started his unknown journey.

Chu Yunsheng's first target was a medium-sized Jiadeli supermarket, since by now most of the supermarkets or convenience stores had already been searched countless times by those hungry people who were risking their lives. Only some places that always had a large number of insects wandering around still have some stuff left.

On the way, Chu Yunsheng continued to think about the decision he made. Since the dark age began, he was always thinking about insects, thinking about increasing his strength. The food he had gathered during the age of light was still enough for him to eat, that was why had not considered food as his first priority. In retrospect, he realized he should have taken more supplies. They were free after all!

But the regret did not change anything. Although most of the supermarkets and convenience stores had been plundered, he still knew some places that no one dared to get close to. He had discovered those places while he was looking for lone  Red Shelled Insects.

This Jiadeli Supermarket was located at a crossroads. When Chu Yunsheng first came to this place, he had noticed that there was a total of four insects. At that time, Chu Yunsheng could not do anything but run away, but now it was a good place to start.

Although there were four of them, Chu Yunsheng also did not dare to let his guard down. He activated his armor and began to secretly approach the target location as usual. Sometimes he even thought that he was psychologically traumatized by the ruthless insects, and this habit gradually became his subconscious behavior.

After arriving at the supermarket, he discovered that the number of insects had increased. Now there was a total of five insects. Chu Yunsheng calculated for a long time, he believed that without any accidents, he should be able to kill them all.

Chu Yunsheng was excited at the prospect of facing five insects. He thought about how he ran away before and now he was really going to fight with those five insects, how could he not be excited?

Not long ago, he killed four insects. He had already used She Yuan Fu to absorb the Yuan Qi and transferred it into his body. Now he had nine units of Yuan Qi in total.

From the back of the supermarket, Chu Yunsheng first lurked into a six-stories high old resident building on the opposite side of the supermarket. He hid on the first floor behind a security door which faced the supermarket. This position was slightly obscured to the three insects outside the supermarket.

He positioned the crossbow, and the arrows were ready to go!

—Woosh!—

With one unit of Yuan Qi, the Frost Arrow successfully froze one insect. The other two immediately noticed and rushed towards him, the insect's reaction time has always been incredibly fast.

The security door only blocked the insects for a few seconds, but it was enough for Chu Yunsheng to reload another arrow. Nearly pressed against its belly, Chu Yunsheng fired again.

At this moment, the other two were rushing out of the supermarket as well. However, Chu Yunsheng had not chosen this place by random, he deliberately picked that place near the stairway.  It was quite narrow, now also having been blocked by one frozen Red Shelled Insect, the remaining space was barely enough for one insect to fit through.

The third insect immediately used its claw to pinch him. It swung the claw left and right, dragging him out of the door as the rest also jumped over. ‘I need to stop this one now!’ Chu Yunsheng thought!

Because of his armor,  he had not felt any pain from that claw attack, even he was pinched, he was still able to maintain a normal physical condition.

“Schwing!”  Qian Bi Sword was drawn. Identical to when he tied himself to the wardrobe, he burst out with a short hiss, and infused one unit of Yuan Qi into the sword. Chu Yunsheng struck out with a hack and a slice one after another. In a single breath, he had cut off the insect’s head!

Chu Yunsheng wiggled his body and fell onto the ground, dodging one of the insect’s feet. He took the opportunity to turn around, attacking with an upward flick. The sword stabbed straight into its belly, he drove the blade deeper while it was still inside the insect's body. The insect crashed into the ground, screaming in pain. It struggled few seconds then died.

At the same time, the last insect’s attack also arrived. It seemed to know that claws wouldn't work on him anymore, so it only picked Chu Yunsheng up and threw him away, Then it spat out the corrosive liquid.

Chu Yunsheng was smashed onto the top of a car, but he was not injured. While he felt a little concussed, the corrosive saliva did not have any damage on the armor.

This last insect did not run towards Chu Yunsheng like he expected. Instead, it suddenly raised its head, facing the sky and started making a very loud high pitched noise. “Oh, no….” He had heard this kind of noise before, it was the signal for calling other insects!

He could not let it continue screeching, the combat with four insects had already consumed four units of his Yuan Qi. He now only had five units of Yuan Qi left. If more insects appeared, once he runs out of Yuan Qi, the lack of his armor would have spelled death for him!!

Chu Yunsheng knew he needed to end this quick, so he did not dare to delay any longer. His hand clenched the sword and jumped towards the insect, once again he filled the sword with Yuan Qi.

He used all his strength to bring down the sword while the insect was still screaming, the force of Qian Bi Sword had instantly split the insect into the half.

Now that he thought the signal had already been sent out, it was just matter of time until insects swarmed here. Chu Yunsheng was afraid to stay here any longer. He immediately stored the five insect’s bodies into the Wu Na  Yuan Fu, and then rushed into the supermarket. He used the Wu Na Yuan Fu to grab everything inside the supermarket. At this moment he did not really have time to check if they were useful or not. He just took whatever he could.

After he swept through the entire supermarket, Chu Yunsheng quickly ran along the street. He did not dare to ride a noisy motorcycle. He was worried that insects would notice and start to chase him.
    
Chu Yunsheng never knew that he could run so fast.  He felt that even if his opponent was Usain Bolt, he would easily win a race. He quickly passed many tall buildings, reaching far away from the supermarket.

After a while, he stopped running, panting on the ground as he thanked his luck for this speed.

Suddenly, he heard sounds of artillery and machine gun fire coming from less than two hundred meters ahead of him. He immediately adjusted the night vision goggles to take a closer look. What he saw almost scared him half to death.

Fortunately, he had decided to stop here for a rest, what he spotted was a group of at least 30 Red Shelled Insects attacking the Military Armoured Unit.

There were dangers forward and backward that caused Chu Yunsheng to panic. There was no way he could stay here, but he had no way to leave. He ran into the building next to him which used to be a luxurious hotel.

According to his past experiences, insects were not likely to climb the tall buildings.

He ran to the roof a thirty-story high building with ease, the pressure of death drove him faster. He looked at the people on the roof with a wry smile. So it looked like he wasn’t the only one who knew about this secret!

At this time, the military had already fired the flares. When he got to the roof, he was immediately noticed by everyone on the roof. Everyone was staring at this man with full red body armor. They definitely thought that his appearance was too weird.

Chu Yunsheng also found that this group of people did not seem right, about a dozen men were holding a variety of weapons and standing on a side of people who were lying on the ground. On occasion, those men kicked the people who had attempted to move.

Thugs? This was Chu Yunsheng’s first reaction, he had met these kinds of people before. Just like previously inside the luxury restaurant.
