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 console 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, he could just take Yu Xiaohai away. There was no way that these people could stop him.

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

Chu Yunsheng 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 cigarettes just gave that leader an excuse, so he can still protect his authority in his gang. No one wanted conflict, especially after they saw the leap Chu Yunsheng did earlier. They were still scared of Chu Yunsheng’s abilities.

The leader of the thugs accepted the half pack of cigarettes, but The cripple 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. He then gave Yu Xiaohai 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 Yunsheng 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 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 Qian Bi sword, all he wanted now was to restore two more units of Yuan Qi, then he could make a new She Yuan Fu, otherwise, if there wasn’t any She Yuan Fu with him, he would not feel safe at all.

After consuming the food, Yu Xiaohai fell asleep, and that thug’s leader also finally finished his activity behind the water tower.

Chu Yunsheng started to concentrate. He did not want to fall asleep until he restored another two units of Yuan Qi.

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

Luckily, his body was already familiar with the Qi cultivation process. He noticed that his Qi cultivation speed was faster than before.

Originally, he needed to spend at least 8 days and 12 hours per day in order to restore six units of Yuan Qi. But now, after about six hours, he felt that he already restored a half unit of Yuan Qi. Based on this speed, after eighteen hours, he could restore one and a half units of Yuan Qi. He originally had four units, after this session,  he would restore six units in total.

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

But 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 Yunsheng got some information from them.

He finally understood why they were keeping those people with them. They were using those people as distractions when they encountered the insects; so they could get away from insects’ attacks. This kind of inhuman behavior,  Chu Yunsheng could never imagine someone would do it. Of course, he would 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. “Yu Xiaohai, save me!” a female voice shouted.

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 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 armor? 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 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 armor, 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 away.

Chu Yunsheng didn’t realize that he had used his three sword forms on those thugs. Although he did not use any Yuan Qi,  the sharp Qian Bi sword blade still sliced his enemies into halves. 

Once he realized what happened, 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 Qian Bi sword onto the ground. The roof went back to dead silent state again!

In less than 60 seconds, he had killed a dozen 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 paralyzed and stared at Chu Yunsheng, as if he saw the devil.
