Chapter 55 a forest inside the city

Chapter 55 a forest inside the city

With the help of tanks and armoured vehicles, Commander Du’s elite team left the crowd and headed towards Jin Ling city, Chu Yunsheng still worried about if he couldn't catch up with their speed, so he took out the motorbike, drove bike far behind the elite team.

However They did not even get too far before they encountered the first wave of 10 red shelled insect’s attack, but this time they had a lot of firearms and almost 40 of the awakening warriors,  so apart from one soldier died and a number of people injured, they did not suffer heavy losses.

It was Chu Yunsheng lucky day, he didn't waste any energy to get 10 insect's bodies, it was enough for him to make one and a half absorption talisman.

On the way they had encountered many waves of insects, luckily all the waves were small, but it caused the entire escort group to slow down.

When it was at 20:00, based on the location shown on the map, they had arrived at Kun city, however, the city in front of them wasn't a city of concrete buildings, instead, the city was surrounded by many massive plants they had never seen before.

The concrete buildings were covered with those plants. Rattans could be seen everywhere, from the roof all the way down to the ground and across the street. as if they came out from other dimensions overnight.

Chu Yunsheng recognised those plants, it was the one he saw at the food factory, the one that was not supposed to exist on earth.

The city was also covered with green fog, there was a shimmer of light, but it was very creepy as if the city was a monster waiting for preys to get in by themselves.

The military escort team had stopped in front of fog for a while then finally decided to go in, So did Chu Yunsheng. he hesitated, but at the end, he still gritted the teeth and followed them into the city.

The city was surrounded by the green fog, but the fog did not seem to be dangerous, at least liu jia talisman didn't have any reaction to it, it just made people feel lost when they got into it.

The noisy crowd was already far away from them, this creepy forest city was unusually quiet, it gave people an Ominous feeling.

Some of the plant's branches glowed a white light, There were some unknown fluffy catkins attached to it. when the tanks and armoured vehicles passed by, it easily brushed them off those the branches.

There were also some plants had a red fruit on its top, the fruits looked like a strawberry but the difference was they were glowing a Lurid red light and their size was as bigger as a TV.

Looking at those strange plants, Chu Yunsheng almost thought he had arrived the insect’s nest!

The road had been covered with the strange plants, even with the help of tanks, they were still moving slowly. the motorbike was too noisy, it would be easily noticed by the military at the front, so Chu Yunsheng stored it back to storage talisman and started to follow them by foot, luckily they were not moving fast, he and Yao Xiang could easily catch up.

The whole city looked like it had fallen for thousands of years, all the buildings were covered with thick rattans, some plants had even grown from inside building through the windows to outside wall.

The only thing that Chu Yunsheng was familiar with was the broken cars and the bodies that scattered on the ground, their skulls were empty, it meant that they were attacked by the red shelled Insects, however, Chu Yunsheng had not encountered a single one of them since they enter the city.

Chu Yunsheng and Yao Xiang were on tenterhook as they slowly followed the troops secretly, they were so scared that an insect or other unknown monsters would suddenly jump out from somewhere from above their head!

People were most afraid of the unknown, especially at this time, although Chu Yunsheng had seen a lot of horror scenes, this time, he also kept his breath slowly and quietly, he was leaning against the tree and vigilantly watch out any movements in the surroundings.

While the troops were slowly moving into the city, they started to hear some people screaming from the deep inside the city from time to time, it made everyone hairs stood up, the city was creepy as hell.

The road completely disappeared, It was buried by the massive plants. The troops had no choice but looking for an alternative route to go past the area.

All their vehicles were stopped at an old hospital, Chu Yunsheng did not know if they were looking for the supplies or they were sending out a scout to explore the possible route at front.

Yao Xiang and Chu Yunsheng both were sitting on a rhizome of red lotus roots-like plant. the plant’s skins were very thin, they could even see the liquid running inside of it.

On their back was a shop, it seemed to be an estate agent. On the top of the shop, they could vaguely see a few words “estate agency”, the shop’s front window was already broken by the thick rattans, on its bottom Chu Yunsheng could still see the poster which says House For Sale.

He secretly took out a cigarette and gave Yao Xiang a bottle of still water. Qian Bi sword was always next to him, he could not let his guard down at any moment.

Suddenly an ear-piercing scream came from the side where the troops were staying. Chu Yunsheng signalled Yao Xiang to watch out the surroundings, and himself popped out half of his head to check what happened.

click ! click ! soldiers immediate released the safety and aimed the gun at the direction where the scream came from, no one knew what kind of monster would come out the green fog!

Time was ticking along with the heart jumping. Chu Yunsheng felt very strange, he did not know if it was because of the creepy environment or something else, it made him become more anxious than before.

Two shadows finally appeared in everyone’s sight, one at the front and one at back. When they saw the troops, they were so excited like the thirsty people who saw the pouring raining, their running speed instantly doubled!

At the same time, a grey flat thing also came out the green fog. It looked as the same as a piece of cloth, it was as big as a half human, it also had one red eye. when it reached one guy from behind, the “cloth” immediately spread out and wrapped the man from his head. the man’s upper body was tightly wrapped. everyone could hear that man’s muffled scream. He was lifted up by the “cloth” and no matter how he struggled, he still could not get away. It was not long until the top half of its body become red liquid. then his rest of half body fell onto the floor.

Then two more “cloth” flew out of the green fog, they caught the guy at the front, the soldiers immediately started to shoot, the bullets were like the pouring rain fall onto  “cloth” but the man was still trapped by the "cloth".

Chu Yunsheng's finger trembled, the cigarette dropped onto the floor. what the hell was that, that kind of death, how can he not scared!

But that thing did not seem to have a strong defence layer like red shelled insect did. two of  “cloth” were shot down, only one got through the bullets rain and flew towards the soldiers at the armoured vehicles.

One of the awakening warriors did not wait for it to reach them, he immediately cast the fire and burned the monster into ashes.

They were not relieved, the sound of gunfire caused even more problems. there were more and more red eyes slowly appeared in the green fog,  Chu Yunsheng heard commander Du shouted:”retreat!”

Tanks immediately turned left and started to run at its full speed. The awakening warriors with ice element started to unleash the frost, the warriors with fire element stood next to the machine gunner ready to attack at any time.

Chu Yunsheng felt nervous just by looking at them, suddenly he felt Yao Xiang tugged him, he instantly turned around. Yao Xiang’s finger was pointing upwards, he looked up then instantly had a chill down his spine,  there were at least 4 or 5 red eyes staring at them.

He immediately lifted the sword,  jumped up while the sword pointing upwards, he needed to kill those “cloth” as fast as he could, and he could not make any noise. Because it might alert the troops and attract more “cloth”.

"Cloth"s defence was not strong. Chu Yunsheng’s sword easily went through its body,  the “cloth” was trying to wrap the Qian Bi sword and his arm, Chu Yunsheng immediately unleashed the Yuan Qi from the sword,  it instantly ripped this “cloth” into pieces.

Rest of “cloth” quickly dived towards him, their speed was extremely fast, Chu Yunsheng was worried that if his movement would attract other's attention, so he was afraid to dodge the attack. He could only quickly swing the sword to slice two of “cloth” into a half, but then his head was immediately wrapped by one of them.

The “cloth” was releasing a strange gas after it wrapped Chu Yunsheng, it instantly triggers the Liu Jia talisman to defend him.

Chu Yunsheng felt suffocated, he panicked and his hand started to grab and pull the “cloth” away from him, But he failed!

Out of desperation, he used the Qian Bi sword to slice the  “cloth” from outside while the monster was still on his face, he tried to break the monster’s tight wrap by force.
