Chapter 56 the fog city

 Chapter 56 the fog city

Red-Eye monster

There wer five monsters, only four headed towards Chu Yunsheng, the other one flew towards Yao Xiang. when Chu Yunsheng finally killed them, Yao Xiang also killed the other monster using fire ring cut.

 Chu Yunsheng didn't have time to check his injury, he immediately pulled Yao Xiang back and leant against the wall. In front of them were hundreds of red eyes, they belonged to hundreds of monsters!

 Even though those monsters didn't have a strong defence, but they could fly, and their speed was very fast, once they wrapped the prey, it would immediately release a strange gas. not only this, people could be suffocated if they were trapped by them. Chu Yunsheng also felt that if it wasn't the Liu jia talisman the monster would inject something into his body!
Chu Yunsheng couldn't imagine if he was being attacked by hundreds of monsters, it made his hairs stand up even just thought about it.
Luckily commander Du’s troops attracted those monsters, Chu Yunsheng didn't dare to pop his head out again, but he could still hear the fierce gunfire and horrible screams.

 He didn't know if Ding Yan was ok, but he thought as long as he stayed in the group, Liu Jia energy shield would save his life.

 With the sounds slowly got further and further away from them, Chu Yunsheng and Yao Xiang bent over and slowly popped out their heads to carefully look around the surroundings, they finally relieved when they found out there wasn't any red-eye monster left.

 Chu Yunsheng ignored Yao Xiang who was sitting next to him, he immediately used the storage talisman to store the monster's’ body, he planned to spend some time to study those monsters later on, the more he got to know the monster, the easier he would be able to escape from them in the future.

 Looking at the empty ground, Yao Xiang gasped in surprise. he seemed to want to ask Chu Yunsheng, but he didn't dare to.
Chu Yunsheng didn't want to explain it either, sometimes the more he explained, the things would get more complicated. They quickly got themselves ready and started to carefully lurk towards the direction where the troops retreated.

 On the way, they had seen many monsters’ bodies, Chu Yunsheng would store all of them if he got time, however, he was worried that if they would lose the troops, so he only stored some of the bodies.

 Apart from the monster's body, there were also a few soldiers’ as well,   two were long face man's team members. it looked like they were struggling as well.

 They didn't find Ding Yan’s body, it made them feel much better. But they still didn't dare to get too close to the troops.

The troops slowly disappeared in the fog until Chu Yunsheng couldn't detect them through the night vision goggles.  Chu Yunsheng only knew which way they retreated to but he didn't have a specific direction so he had to rely on the marks Ding Yan left behind.

 When he once again saw the troops, he was shocked to find out, both he and the troops had lost the directions!
In This city forest. the deeper they got inside, the thicker the green fog would be. Although most of the plants were glowing the strange light, and the forest wasn't that dark compared to the outside, but they still couldn't find a way out.

 The roads were either broken by the strange plant's root or covered by it, only a few skyscrapers were standing still in the fog, even Chu Yunsheng took out the map he still couldn't recognise where he was.

 Chu Yunsheng started to panic, if he was still in Shen Cheng city, he would recognise the buildings, but now, he was in an entirely different city, he couldn't even mark the road which they had travelled on the map, Moreover, he was worried about the red eye monsters that were hiding in the fog.

 The same thing happened to the commander Du as well. they had completely stopped moving now. troops were gathered together and it looked like they were discussing something.
Yao Xiang was holding the map that Chu Yunsheng passed to him. he ticked one building name: Industrial and Commercial Bank- Hou Jie branch on the map and suggested:” brother Chu, I reckon, we need to ask local people. when we blindly followed them around in the fog, we saw a lot of people hiding inside the buildings, didn't we?”

 Chu Yunsheng also thought about it, but the troops in front of them were the elite team selected by the regiment commander Du, who would know they would also get lost, not to mention the scientists in their armoured vehicles, are they not useful at all?

But apparently, they did lose the directions, they probably even more anxious than Chu Yunsheng.

 Suddenly, Chu Yunsheng was alarmed by what Yao Xiang said. normally, if people saw the troops, they would come out of the buildings and seek help as fast as they could. but he and the troops had lost in the fog for quite awhile now, not even a single person came out!

He was not hallucinating, there were people inside the buildings, but why wouldn't they come out?  Chu Yunsheng’s thoughts were in turmoil, this fog city seemed to be even scarier and creepier than the horror city Shen Cheng.

He really needed to ask a local person now! Chu Yunsheng stroked his belly, they had been trembling with fear while following the commander Du for a quite some time. They already felt hungry, now it was the time to find a place to eat something. Ding Yan was still alive and the troops didn't look like they were going to move anytime soon. so they were not worried.

Chu Yunsheng and Yao Xiang took few turns, find a small café two streets away from the troops. He used the sword to break the lock on the door and got inside.

The cafe wasn't that mess like outside, but he could still see few strange plants penetrated the wall and attached to the wall, one of the rattan plants was illuminating the hazy light, just enough for them to see what was inside the café.

Chu Yunsheng checked the building, he didn't find anything dangerous, then he took out the food, sat on the sofa and started to eat with Yao Xiang.

 Yao Xiang smiled:” I haven't eaten this much of food for a quite long time.”

 Chu Yunsheng downed a bottle of water and told him:” when you finish eating, take a nap first, then my turn. we will leave her, in a half hour. we will need to find someone we can talk to as soon as possible.”

 Yao Xiang nodded:” you just reminded me, I really need a rest now.”

 They didn't talk much, soon Yao Xiang fell asleep on the sofa.

 Chu Yunsheng sat there, he wanted to cultivate Yuan Qi, but he couldn't calm down, then he thought of the red-eye monster. he remembered that when the monster was attacking him, he felt like the monster’s attack could damage the Liu jia talisman’s  energy shield!

He immediately sat up and checked the state of Liu Jia talisman, then he found out that a lot of Yuan Qi inside talisman had gone missing!

It proved that the monsters had abilities to damage the energy shield!

It instantly reminded Chu Yunsheng the insect's bodies he found while wandering in the fog. those bodies had been there for a long time, Chu Yunsheng didn't feel any Yuan Qi inside the dead insect's body. he had also stored some of them, so he could upgrade his armour later on.

When he took out the insect's body to exam it again, he noticed that the insect's body didn't have any sign of being attacked by the awakening’s fire or ice abilities. they all lost their head, the internal organs also disappeared quite a lot. he looked at the monster's body while thinking about the red eye insects, could it be that those monsters killed the red-shelled insect?

 If that was the case, then it meant those strange gas they released could also destroy the insect's energy shield?

 Chu Yunsheng’s heart started to jump rapidly, the monster’s energy shield was always a problem for him.

He immediately took out the red eye monster’s body and started to prepare the experiment.
