Chapter 57 choose

 Chapter 57 choose
When a Red-eyed monster spread out its body, it could reach two meters long. Its body looked like a grey canvas, and there were dark red tendons and thin bones spread all over its body. It had an eyeball on its top, and the size of it was as big as a computer mouse. When it died the eyeball would turn into a beige color. Below the eyeball at the center of its body, there were many small sharp teeth, they were formed in a circular shape, it was like a flower core took up half of its entire body.

Chu Yunsheng turned the monster upside down, he even stepped on it very hard a few times, but he still couldn't get the gas he wanted.

‘Is it because the monster was dead, does it mean that the gas will disappear after it died?’ Chu Yunsheng thought for a second, he then took out an absorption talisman trying to absorb Yuan Qi from the monster.

As the talisman slowly sucked the energy out of the monster, a blurry ice pattern appeared on the top of the talisman. It seemed like it only had ⅕ of a pattern. One red shelled insect could supply 1 flame pattern of Yuan Qi. It obviously meant that the red-eyed monster’s Yuan Qi was less than red shelled insect’s.

Chu Yunsheng guessed that this was probably the reason why the red-eyed monster’s defence ability was a lot weaker than the red-shelled insect’s. Although in general, the ice element was much stronger than the fire element in defence, unless the power gap was very huge. Also, red-eyed monsters didn't have a hard shell to protect them from any physical attack.

But he still did not find that strange gas he was looking for. The absorption talisman only absorbed the pure ice elemental Yuan Qi from the monster, it did not seem to respond to any other things.

Chu Yunsheng took back the absorption talisman, and suddenly he had an idea. He deactivated the combat armor talisman and unsealed the combat armor talisman from his body. He wanted to see if he could use the red-eyed monster’s body to upgrade the armor.

However, the armor did not have any reaction to it. It did not seem to have any interests in this monster which now looked like a piece of old ripped cloth. Instead, Qian Bi sword started to spin in the mid-air. Slowly a trace of blue gas came out of the monster’s body, it was the gas that Chu Yunsheng was looking for.

The dead red-eyed monster did not have much blue gas. Chu Yunsheng immediately took out all the bodies, let Qian Bi sword absorb the gas from all the monsters. However, he was quite disappointed that in the end he still did not get much gas out of those bodies.

Inside the crimson Qian Bi sword, Chu Yunsheng could vaguely feel that the blue ripples slowly appeared. However, there was not many, if he didn't concentrate, he couldn't even notice it.

There were some red shelled insect’s shells inside the storage talisman, Chu Yunsheng took them out and tried to test the sword on them. The gas did not make the sword sharper. So, could it be something to do with the energy shield rather than the physical object?  Chu Yunsheng wondered. However, there weren't any live red shelled insects that would allow him to do the test.

Chu Yunsheng looked at Yao Xiang who was still sleeping on the side.  Eventually, he gave up the idea to test the energy shield which he had cast onto Yao Xiang before, he was afraid that if he was not careful enough he would injure Yao Xiang.

He then thought again, Qian Bi sword also did not absorb much gas, so the test result wouldn't be very obvious, even if he did test it. In the end, he decided to wait until he had enough red-eyed monster’s bodies.

But when he thought about hundreds of red-eyed monsters,  Chu Yunsheng flinched.

Suddenly, he heard a clatter of hurried footsteps coming from the doorway, Chu Yunsheng immediately stored everything back to the storage talisman,  he did not even have time to activate the armor.

Then, a group of men and women flocked inside. When they saw Chu Yunsheng and Yao Xiang,  they all stopped!

Yao Xiang was aroused from the sleep, he instantly jumped up and made a combat posture in a panic.

There were 9 people in total, 5 males, 3 females, and one kid who looked like around 10 years old.  Four people were holding long iron bars. The other four were holding two chunks of red-shelled insect’s shell together, one chunk for every two people, they were using it as shields, the kid was carrying the half of a dog's body.

Chu Yunsheng gave them a friendly smile, they looked like local people, they must have been living here for quite some time. Especially that one person was wearing a uniform, and on his uniform, it was written ‘urban management officer’.

They just came in at right time, Chu Yunsheng and Yao Xiang were looking for some local people, they wanted to know the situations of this city. It was creepy as hell when the strange city was surrounded by the green fog.

However, those people were extremely vigilant, and it seemed like they did not want to talk to Chu Yunsheng and Yao Xiang. When they saw Chu Yunsheng, they immediately held the shells up, but they did not seem to want to leave as well.

Chu Yunsheng pointed himself and Yao Xiang, and gave them a hollow laugh. “We are just passing by, we are having a rest here, this is my friend”,

Chu Yunsheng and Yao Xiang did not have any weapon with them at the moment, at least it looked like so. Chu Yunsheng did not activate the armor, and Yao Xiang normally fight with bare hands.

Plus they both did not look like bad guys, and Chu Yunsheng also explained why they were here, so they all sighed with relief, but they still did not put down their weapons.

One of the women popped out her head said coldly. “since you are just passing by, you stay on the left side, we stay on the right side, everyone minds their own business.”

There was a round stage in the middle of the cafe, there was a piano on the stage, it just happened to divide the cafe into the left side and the right side.

Chu Yunsheng nodded his head, but when he wanted to carry on talking, the other side already moved to the right side. They did not seem to want to talk to Chu Yunsheng.

Chu Yunsheng and Yao Xiang looked at each other and gave both a dry smile.
People’s feelings were extremely fragile and sensitive now, it was very normal that people would keep their distance from a stranger.

Also, they clearly have a dog’s body, That was also one of the reasons they wanted to keep themselves away from Chu Yunsheng.

But Chu Yunsheng did not want to give up, they urgently need some information. Later on, they still had to carry on following the commander Du.

They turned around and noticed the half bag of cookie and the two pieces of Sachima that they hadn't finished. Chu Yunsheng had an idea. He wanted to use food to exchange for some information. This probably was probably the best way to do it.

However, when he just stepped on the round stage,  the cafe’s entrance door was suddenly kicked open.

What broke into the café was a man with a long disheveled hair. He was surrounded by the violent ice elemental energy and he was waving the red-shelled insect’s leg while rushing into the cafe. Two women were closely following him behind.

“Crack..crack...” the windows were suddenly broken, then several grey shadows broke into the cafe,  each one of them had a blood red eye.

Chu Yunsheng was startled, he immediately stepped back,  and stood next to Yao Xiang. At the same time, he immediately activated the armor and drew the sword as fast as he could!

The 9 people who came in the café earlier immediately held up the shells and the metal bars, they also backed off for several steps. From their simultaneous moments, it seemed like they have experiences in dealing with those monsters.

Red-eyed monsters did not fly towards the man with a long disheveled hair immediately.  Instead, they were dashing around madly inside the cafe. One of the older women was scared into running in a completely opposite direction. She started to run towards the door in panic.

One of those red-eyed monsters immediately dashed toward the older women. It wrapped her around and lifted her to the left side. The man was terrified, he dragged the other woman and ran towards the older one, at the same time he shouted loudly. “Mom!”

At that moment, a few other monsters also began to dive, they were heading towards the younger woman,  she only got a chance to shout. “Ah Yu! Lao Gong(husband)!” then she was lifted up and dragged away from her husband by one of the monsters.

The man was trying to save his mother earlier, but at that moment he was completely stunned!

In Buddhism, there was a very interesting saying,  it stated that each choice a person made would lead the person to a different world. This was also a very popular topic in the age of light.

Chu Yunsheng had seen a lot of bloody fights between monsters and humans, but even with that kind of experiences, he was still shocked to see such cruel scene!

Red-eyed monster’s gas would kill a person less than a minute, that man had to make a painful decision quickly:

To save mother or to save wife!
