chapter 45 the power of a Sausage

Chapter 45 the power of a Sausage
Zhong Nan looked at Chun Yunsheng in surprise. He had never seen a person that had kind of request before. The people in the escort team would often find all kinds of excuses just to avoid going to the battle!

He didn't know why Chu Yunsheng was asking for this, but as the Captain, he did what he could to advise him to keep his energy for a long battle and not to get carried away by the anger.

But Chu Yunsheng still insisted, so Zhong Nan stopped persuading him. After all, other teams would love to have more people like him.

When it was time for the meal, Chu Yunsheng got the food from the university and decided to deactivate the armor.  Because there were too many people, so he was not worried about if Insects would rush directly towards him. It would only give him more trouble if he kept wearing it.

The food was horrible, it was like sticky batter, but couldn't see what the ingredients were. Luckily the teams that joined the combat would receive a half of a sausage as a bonus, but even with that, it was considered as a luxury reward by most of the people.

With this simple, or could be described as rubbish-like food, everyone was very enjoying the meal, and the people who at outside the truck were swallowing hard while watching them eating it.

Chu Yunsheng did not like to waste food, especially at this time period. Food was getting lesser and lesser, as long as he was still alive, he would have to face the long dark age that lacking in the food supply. So he was not fussy about the food.

But he was quite happy today because he got two complete absorption talisman. Based on this rate, he could get even more in the future! So he only consumed half of that sticky batter, then gave it to Yu Xiaohai. Instead of eating the batter, he took out one tin of beer that he kept for a long time, lit a cigarette and started to slowly consume the sausage.

Apart from food, he also stored a lot of tobaccos. But then again, the priority must be food first. After all, tobacco wasn't food, he could not survive just purely by tobaccos.

Most of the cigarettes he had were from supermarkets and tobacco shops. When he took the cigarette he didn't mind what brand he was getting, as long as it was tobacco he would take it. Who knew to what extent Jin ling city would be lacking in tobacco.

Beer, tobacco, sausage, any one of them would cause a commotion in the crowd, not to mention Chu Yunsheng had all of them!

But no one dared to interrupt him. He was fighting with three red shelled insects alone earlier on, and he killed all three insects. This information had already been spread by Qian Deduo. The man was even stronger than the Captain. So as long as a person wasn't retarded, no one would dare to give him troubles.

No one dared to drink Chu Yunsheng's beer expect Yu Xiaohai, most of the people just stared at him and some of them envied what Yu Xiaohai could do.

“Brother Chu!” Qian Deduo didn't dare to treat him as a normal team member, he got closer and whispered to him. “I have one thing need to discuss with you.”

Chu Yunsheng nodded his head signaling him to carry on.

Qian Deduo quickly glanced around, lowered his voice even more. “brother Chu, there is a food factory near here, I used to work there, I've talked to The Big Head Jiang, we gonna loot it.”

Chu Yunsheng paused for a second. “loot it?”

Qian Deduo nodded. “the university’s supply is not enough for us, everyone often did similar thing secretly. We just fought with red shelled insects. So it won't be our turn anytime soon. Those people from the top won't say anything, as long as we come back quickly. If we got supplies, we will be rich!”

Chu Yunsheng had a doubt. “why don't those people from the top organize any searches?”

Qian Deduo's face was filled with helplessness expression. “They do organize it. Before you joined us, they have already organized many times. Otherwise, where do you think they get food from? But because it is the organized search, so most of the stuff we found, we need to hand in.”

Chu Yunsheng now knew that why the man wanted to get something just for himself. But he didn't really mind, as long as he could get something as well. “how do you split it?” he asked.

Qian Deduo had a shallow smile on his face. “of course there are rules, if we didn't encounter the insect, we'll split it evenly, if we did, whoever contributes the most to the fight, will get more! It’s fair and square!”

Chu Yunsheng nodded his head. “ok, but if it's too dangerous or too far, I suggest that no go there!”

Qian Deduo clapped his chest and promised it wouldn't be very far, but he didn't know how dangerous it would be. He told Chu Yunsheng that if they encountered many insects, they would just retreat. No one wanted to die over some food…

The food factory was still quite far from here, so they had to wait until the crowd moved close enough to there. But not close enough to be noticed by everyone. 

Qian Deduo sat next to Chu Yunsheng carried on talking. “brother Chu, maybe you don't know, not only bread or sausages, even you have a cookie, those girls outside the truck would willing to have sex with you!... why are you looking at me like that…  you don't believe me!”

“Do you know what is it like to be starving? Being killed by insects wasn't that bad, it would give you a quick one. But the scariest thing is to starve to death, fuck that feeling, I would never ever want to experience it again!”

“Brother Chu, do you know how I awakened? That day, I lost my consciousness because of starvation, I felt that I was in hell, but God blessed me, I Inexplicably awakened when I was dying!”

The more he talked the more agitated he was as if he returned to that day. His voice also became slightly hoarse.

Chu Yunsheng gave him the beer he was drinking, signaled him not to get too agitated. He noticed that the more people he talked to, the more he discovered that almost everyone had an unforgettable memory.

Qian Deduo gratefully took the beer, suddenly he rolled his eye and smiled. “brother Chu, you still don't believe me, do you?”

Chu Yunsheng shook his head. It was not that he didn't believe him. since the dark age began, more people died of hunger than killed by the insect!

But apparently, Qian Deduo misunderstood him, he thought that Chu Yunsheng didn't agree with him.

Chu Yunsheng didn't know why he had a sly smile on his face until he suddenly grabbed the half sausage that Yu Xiaohai wanted to keep for the last. He apologized to Yu Xiaohai. “ Sorry, borrow this for a minute! I'll show you!”

He then stood up and pointed at the crowd outside the truck. “I recognize those people, those are the students who were studying English in our university, let me show you the power of a sausage!”

Qian Deduo held the sausage over his head, he drew his voice out and shouted loudly. “f-----ood! F------oood!”(he shouted in English)

When he shouted, everyone including the people on the truck was looking at him. No one knew what he was saying, but the temptation of that sausage still caused everyone to push forward as if they knew something about to happen.

Qian Deduo was waving the sausage and smiling at Chu Yunsheng, then he turned around and shouted one sentence that almost made Chu Yunsheng throw up blood due to emotional trauma.  “half sausage for one pretty girl,  if you want, say it now!”

It was just like throwing water into the hot oil, the crowd instantly exploded. Those who could still maintain their sense of dignity and restrain their own behaviors all looked at the truck and other people contemptuously; others who couldn't bear the hunger any longer were all pushing forward. They already forget about what Qian Deduo was asking for. Males, females, beautiful or not, they all shamelessly shouted. “me, me. Me!...”
