Chapter 28 The Killings Begin

Chapter 28: The Killings Begin 
Edited by Chubby

“They are all dead! All dead!” Yu Xiaohai could not stop shivering: “Chu, my...My father… My mother! They are all dead, insects ate them! They all dead!… Dead!...”

Chu Yunsheng's heart trembled, but he didn't know how to comfort him. When he hugged Yu Xiao Hai’s head, he could still feel Yu Xiaohai's body shaking uncontrollably.

Suddenly, another thump sound came from behind the water tower. Chu Yunsheng looked in the direction the sound was coming from. He saw that leader was still holding his pants as he loudly raged: “You bastard! Can you not wait until I finish my business!?”

The cripple smiled and stood up. He whispered to that leader while glancing at Chu Yunsheng and Yu Xiaohai from time to time.

The leader pushed the cripple away while holding his pants, pointed at the thug who was kicked over by Chu Yunsheng and laughed: “Brother, I respected you, but why did you do this?”

Chu Yunsheng knitted his brows. If he was not so concerned about the insects, Chu could just take Yu Xiaohai away. There is no way these people could stop him.

That kick he threw earlier did not contain any Yuan Qi. It was only the power of the armour, but surprisingly, it could cause such damage to a normal person.

Chu suddenly remembered the deal that the cripple wanted to make. He took out a half pack of cigarettes,  tossed it over to the leader and said: “This man (Yu Xiaohai) is under my protection now!”

That leader caught the half pack of cigarettes,put it under his nose, and took a huge sniff. He smiled: “Brother, you are good, this man is yours!”

Chu Yunsheng wasn’t stupid. This half pack of a cigarettes just gave that leader an excuse, so his can still protect his authority in his gang. No one wanted conflict, especially after they saw the leap Chu Yunsheng did earlier. They are still scared of Chu Yunsheng’s abilities.

The cripple saw his boss accept the half pack of cigarettes, but he still could not let it go. He approached Chu Yunsheng again: “Bro, that girl, do you still want it?”

Chu Yunsheng shook his head and helped Yu Xiaohai to sit on the concrete floor on the other side. Yu Xiaohai’s lips were already cracked up bleeding, Chu Yunsheng was looking for something that he could give to Yu Xiaohai in the Wu Na Yuan Fu for a long time. Finally he found he gave Yu Xiaohai some food, drink, and a few White Rabbit candies.

Looking at Yu Xiaohai devouring an apple, Chu Yunsheng found that comparing himself to them, at least in terms of food, he was living in heaven!

The cripple still could not give it up. He came back again and stared at the food Chu gave to Yu Xiaohai. The cripple swallowed very hard and approached Chu Yunsheng again: “Bro, oh, no … boss. You don’t really want it? I just need one cigarette, not one pack.” He then took another peek at the food and said: “If not, maybe one candy is also fine!”

Chu Yunsheng sneered at him. He took out the Qian Bi sword, used Yuan Qi to activate the  sword and stabbed it straight into the floor in front of him. His action scared the cripple into sitting on the floor.

“Stop annoying me! And fuck off!” Chu Yunsheng took back the Qian Bi sword, all he wants now is to restore two more units of Yuan Qi, then he can make a new She Yuan Fu, otherwise if there isn’t any She Yuan Fu, he does not feel safe at all.

After consuming the food, Yu Xiaohai fell asleep. Chu Yunsheng did not know if he fainted or slept.

That thug’s leader finally finished his activity behind the water tower, Chu Yunsheng started to concentrate. He did not want to fall asleep until he restores another two units of Yuan Qi.

Only left 70 hours until the army retreats, he is racing against time now.

Luckily, his body was already familiar with the Qi cultivation process. He noticed that his Qi cultivation speed is faster than before. Originally, he needed to spend at least 8 days and 12 hours per day in order to restore 6 units of Yuan Qi. But now, after about 6 hours, he felt that he already restored a half unit of Yuan Qi. Based on this speed, after 18 hours, he could restore one and a half units of Yuan Qi. He originally had four units, after this session,  he will restore 6 units in total.

Inside the Wu Na Yuan Fu, there are five insect bodies. They could at least provide him up to 10 units of Yuan Qi.

Suddenly, he was interrupted by a man. It was that leader again. His name was Liang Xing, and he had asked Chu Yunsheng to join them, but Chu Yunsheng refused.  However, Chu got some information from them. Chu Yunsheng finally understood why they were keeping those people with them. They were using those people as distractions when they encountered the insects; so they can get away from insect’s attack. This kind of inhuman behaviour,  Chu Yunsheng could never imagine someone would do it. Of course, he did not want to join them.

If he was not afraid of attracting more insects, he would’ve not given them the cigarette. All the supplies he got was by risking his own life or earned by hard working during the age of light, none of them came easy!

But now, the sound of gunshots and insect screams were gone. The insects after Chu Yunsheng still have not shown up yet, so he did not worry if the fight between them would attract more insects.

Liang Xing felt embarrassed, but he could not do anything. He started to take those people with them, and planned to leave the roof. Their destination was also Jin Ling city.

Just when those thugs began to push the “Cannon fodders” forward, a shadow rushed out of the crowd, a female voice shouted: “Yu Xiaohai, save me!”.

Yu Xiaohai was awakened by the scream, he panicked and jumped up. That shadow fell onto the ground in front of Yu Xiaohai, and grasped his clothes. Chu Yunsheng did not know what was going on, but he still took out the Qian Bi sword, Yuan Qi started to emerge!

Yu Xiaohai paused for a second, then slowly calmed down. “Chu, this is Xiao Li, after you resigned from the company, she came to work for us. ” He said with a slight hesitation.

At this time, all the thugs were holding guns and surrounded them. They were obviously not happy with the things that Chu Yunsheng did earlier. Everyone was pointing the gun at him.

Liang Xing still had a smile on his face, he snorted: “Brother, I have shown enough respect, there are rules for everything, don’t you think so?”

“Boss, do not waste time talking to him, I don't believe he can stop the bullets!” one of the thugs shouted.

“Fuck him! I don't like this punk’s attitude! Wearing an armour? Does he thinks he is superman or something?!”

“Boss, kill him!”

Liang Xing still hesitated. Even though his men were encouraging him to do something, it seemed like he was still concerned about Chu Yunsheng’s ability. He stopped smiling, and said coldly: “Brother, I know you are strong, but we are not fresh meat ...”

Chu Yunsheng picked up Yu Xiaohai and his female colleague, threw them behind the water tower, then stopped Liang Xing’s speech: “I already have them, if you want to fight, let’s fight!” When he just finished his sentence, he rushed into the crowd with the Qian Bi sword. Suddenly gunshots, and screams burst out in the silent roof.

Normal bullets could not do any damage to Chu Yunsheng. As long as he was wearing the armour, those bullets weren’t a threat. Chu Yunsheng was just like a hungry wolf who ran into a sheep herd. Every swing of his sword took a life.

Chu Yunsheng didn’t realize that he used his three sword forms on those thugs. Although he did not use any Yuan Qi,  the sharp Qian Bi sword still sliced in its path in half.  Once Chu realized what was happening, it was too late. All the thugs were dead on the ground. Some of them had their head cut into half. Some of them did not even have their head. Blood was dripping from the Qian Bi sword onto the ground. The roof went back to being dead silent again!

In less than 60 seconds, he had killed a dozen of people in total. The number of animals he killed in his entire life was less than this. Of course, that was not counting the insects. All the thugs were dead, apart from the cripple. Liang Xing’s head rolled to his feet. The cripple was paralysed and stared at Chu Yunsheng, as if he saw the devil.
