Chapter 74 not enough time


Chapter 74 not enough time
The flame monster was a pure fire elemental monster, so Li Huo talisman which was the one he used to injure the tentacle monster wouldn't do much damage to it. He had gone through the entire ancient book trying to find as many options as he could. In the end, he decided to select one which had ice element Yuan Qi.

There were many types of level three talismans, but the number of talismans he could understand wasn't that many. So in the end, he selected an ice elemental talisman called Bing Beng Fu (TL: Glacier collapsing talisman). He did not think it was the most powerful talisman in the book, because its description was the shortest and the method of making it was the simplest. But he could make many of them to compensate its weak power. He did not know how many flame monsters were there in each section, but he needed to prepare at least 9 Bing Beng Fu (TL: Glacier collapsing talisman).

It usually consumed him a lot of Yuan Qi When making a level-two talisman at Yuan Tian stage one, it was the same when Chu Yunsheng wanted to make a level-three talisman at Yuan Tian stage two.

Especially when he needed to make 9 level-three talismans, he had to use several absorption talismans to restore his Yuan Qi in order to complete them.

He then upgraded the combat armor talisman to level 2. The talismans on Qian Bi sword, bow and gun were also upgraded to level-two.

The description of the level-three combat armor talisman, he still did not understand, and there was not enough time for him to study the book. Even if he did understand them, there wasn't any enough Yuan Qi to support him to upgrade them.

The Yuan Qi inside two storage talismans could still sustain for some time, so he wanted to wait until they completely stopped working.

And now there was only one thing left, which was the monster seal talisman,  it was a very strange one, it required a lot of Yuan Qi, three times more than a Glacier talisman. it could be used to seal one dying monster inside the talisman. Then the practitioner could use Yuan Qi inside the talisman to feed or heal the monster. When the monster recovered, the practitioner could summon them during the battle.

Chu Yunsheng gritted his teeth and decided to make one to seal one meat worm.

When facing the flame monster, even if he was at Yuan Tian stage two, he still needed to run away. Glacier talisman was just used to slow down the flame monster's speed, he did not think it would kill the flame monster at all. If he could seal more meat worms, not only its strong suction ability would be able to slow down the flame monster, it could also be used as an additional distraction to distract the flame monster when he was running away.

But it was just a thought, Chu Yunsheng didn't have that much Yuan Qi to support him to make more monster seal talismans. He still needed to keep at least 10 full-patterned absorption talismans as backups, in case if he needed to restore his Yuan Qi during a battle.

..........................

Meanwhile, in the hall area, a few soldiers were carrying a young soldier who was wearing a metal helmet and rushing into the building from outside. The soldier's body was covered with blood. The Staff officer Tao immediately informed the commander Du after he realized what happened.

The dying soldier was losing a lot of his blood, his mouth was covered in blood when he tried to say something. “to …. To  …. 2,  218 regiment commander Du Qishan …  order… order from the division...   In …. My pocket…..  Not  …. Enough …. Time….!!”

“What do you mean not enough time? Young man, young man!!” The commander Du was shaking the dying soldier very hard, but the soldier's head already bowed down.

“Commander, he … he is gone!” the staff Tao tested the soldier's pulse and said quietly.

The commander Du nodded his head. Then he suddenly remembered what soldier said and started to go through the dead soldier's pockets. Soon, he found a piece of crumpled paper that was covered with blood stain from a pocket inside the soldier's coat. He unfolded the paper and quickly glanced through the words, then his face instantly fell and became even more grave.

"Get Chu Yunsheng immediately, no… let me talk to him!" The commander Du shoved the piece of paper into his pocket and quickly moved the staff officer away. He rushed to the room where Chu Yunsheng was staying as fast as he could.

.........................

"Did you just say our entire defence line in Shen Cheng city collapsed!? The swarm will be here soon!” Chu Yunsheng was startled and jumped up from the chair he was sitting!

“Yes! Just three hours ago, the division commander had sent an entire company into this city looking for us, the main force has taken an alternative route to bypass this area, now they are currently waiting at a town 5km from here. But they only gave us 6 hours, if we can't escape on time, they will leave those scientists here and head straight to Jin Ling city.” The commander Du’s voice was ice cold.

"The company spent more than 3 hours looking for us inside the city, we now only left just little more than 2 hours! We need to move now!” The commander Du stood up all of sudden.

Chu Yunsheng already forgot about that he needed to rest, he immediately activated his armor and drew the sword. “ask those professors to speed up, we need the map, I'm ready to go at any time, but you need to get those awakened warriors ready as soon as possible!"

.................................

The commander Du didn't hide the truth from those awakened warriors, now they had reached the most dangerous moment in their entire life. If they couldn't destroy the wall, once the swarm reached here, everyone would be dead!

The professors were rushing to get their final deduction done,  even the people who just went to sleep were also awakened up and asked to join the deduction team.

After the commander Du non-stop urging them, At 20:40 those professors finally finished the map. The time that the division set to leave was at 23:00, so they had only 2 hours and 20 minutes left!

There were around 150 awakened warriors in total, it included the awakened warriors from the military.

They were separated into two groups. The first group had around 100 people, they were the main force of this attack, their main objective was to destroy the fog cores. Another group was mainly focusing on protecting the scientists and the family members of those awakened warriors while moving to each section.

The main force was commanded by the military awakened warrior Capt. Ban ShiJun, the other group was commanded by the regiment commander Du.

Ban ShiJun was the military officer who supported Yao Xiang's statement in the hall Last time. He had been working with Yao Xiang several times, they were on pretty good terms.

Just when they were about to leave, the staff officer Tao brought another group of people inside the hall. When they just got inside, they immediately demanded to take over the entire group!

The commander Du was furious. "who the fuck are they!?"

In this extremely critical moment, someone even dared to cause troubles, the commander Du was so pissed off that he wanted to kill those people right on the spot.

The staff officer Tao immediately stopped the commander Du. "Commander, those are the government officials in Kun city. They have been hiding near the granaries. They have police forces and many guns. "
 
The commander Du snorted. “what government officials? my regiment will only listen to the military’s command. Local officials have no authority over Us ”

An official who was wearing a glasses walked out the group and said bureaucratically. “this must be the commander Du. Comrade, you have been working very hard.  As the local officials, I am very grateful to the comrades who are participating in the rescue work, we have been waiting for comrades for a long time ….."

Chu Yunsheng’s heart was torn with anxiety, he couldn't listen to this man talking nonsense anymore. The place that those people were hiding at was probably far away from here, so it was understandable that they might have received the information a little bit late. But how could they be so stupid to demand to take over the troop at this critical moment?  Chu Yunsheng was furious.
 
The commander Du pushed away the staff officer Tao, and drew his gun, he sneered. “stop talking nonsense, want to control my regiment, kill me first. I will live as a soldier and die as a soldier. unless you have the order from the military headquarters. Then please excuse us, Ban ShiJun let’s Go!"

The glasses official ’s face instantly fall, he gave an armed police officer a look then once again stopped commander Du. "OK, Commander Du, we do not need to control your regiment, but we still need to use some of your men. Several important old officials are still trapped in the granaries, those officials are very influential people, not just in Jin Ling city, even in the capital city as well. rescue them will benefit both of us. I hope you could think again!  ”
