Chapter 86 Sahā World

Chapter 86 Sahā World
They were not far from Chu Yunsheng, the powerful shockwave instantly smashed all windows. The village’s house wasn't built of concrete. It wasn't solid enough to withstand the shockwave. Within a few seconds, the building collapsed onto the ground.

Chu Yunsheng was nowhere to run, he was injured and exhausted, he even started to lose his consciousness. He was eventually knocked out by the shockwave and buried by the building that collapsed on top of him.

All he felt was complete darkness, and he suddenly felt pains appearing everywhere around his body. Then, he couldn't remember anything anymore.

In the building debris. No one knew how long it had passed. Chu Yunsheng seemed to see his mother preparing the dish he liked the most in the kitchen, and his father was watching a boring tv program on the sofa. It was the scene that he used to see every time when he returned home in his childhood. It didn't change at all, his father even said exactly the same words that he would say every time. "Oh, you back, are you hungry? you Mom had prepared the soup for you already. Go wash your hand first."

The sad memories instantly made him burst into tears, he rushed towards his Mom and embraced her from behind. He wanted to tell her all the panic, anxiety, loneliness and the most important how much he missed her.

He wanted to tell her a lot of things, but in the end, all he could say was: “Mom… I miss you!”

Then the scene suddenly changed, an overloaded truck suddenly appeared along with an ear-piercing braking sound and crashing sound…

When he opened his eyes again, what he saw was two stone-cold bodies and another him was on his knees wailing.  “Mom!  Dad…”

That moment, he experienced that pain once again. It was the pain of losing loved ones, and the pain that was supposed to be buried deep inside his mind, but now, it was tearing his heart apart again!

Chu Yunsheng woke up in panic, he was shouting until he realized it was just a dream.

It was pitch black and freezing, it was completely silent as if he was in the hell.

‘Did I die?’ The first thought came to Chu Yunsheng’s mind.

But then the acute pain in his left leg instantly reminded him what happened.

“Probably the house collapsed, I am buried underneath it.” What happened before he lost his consciousness flashed back in his mind.

Chu Yunsheng tried to move the chunk of the floor that was on top of his body away from him, but after several attempts, he still couldn't move it.

He groped around, luckily Qian Bi sword was still next to him. He used Qian Bi sword to slowly cut off the floor piece by piece while enduring a terrible pain.

A hazy shimmer soon cast on to him through the gaps between broken floors. He suspected that it was probably the daytime during the age of light.

He crawled out of the debris and checked how bad the injury was. His head was wounded, it was still bleeding; his chest was heavily hit, probably had a few broken bones. He couldn't feel anything in his left leg, he didn't know if it was broken or not.

Energy shield talisman was completely gone now, otherwise, he wouldn't be injured like this.

Luckily he was still alive, Chu Yunsheng told himself.

He took out some medicines and bandages that he stored in the storage talisman, and used the bandage to wrap the wounded areas without knowing how to properly wrap it. He didn't know if Yuan Qi could prevent the infections or not, so he took several antibiotics as well.

It was dead silent in the area, insects had already disappeared. He didn't know how long he had lost his consciousness, but at this moment, he felt extremely hungry.

Chu Yunsheng sat on the ground and leaned against a broken wall. He just ate some simple food.

With the food slowly converted into his body energy, he slowly recovered his strength. His vision also started to become clear. But what he saw next completely stunned him. With the help of hazy shimmer, he saw the world that was covered with the dead bodies!

His fingers trembled, the cigarette that he had just lit up was dropped on the ground. He crawled to the top of the collapsed house and gazed afar.

Bodies, bodies, endless bodies spread to the horizon! It was the world of dead bodies!

As if humans had died out, it just left him sitting on top of debris in this world!

His body shook uncontrollably, he felt cold, freezing cold.

His mind was filled with an unprecedented panic attack.

“someone must be alive, Jin Ling city definitely still exists, no way they all died, no way! …” he mumbled again and again, and he forced himself to believe it.

He made himself a walking stick out of a broken furniture that he found in the debris. Then, he began to limped past bodies after bodies and slowly headed towards Jin Ling city.

He tried to get rid off the thoughts about the human extinction in his mind by repeatedly reciting cultivation incantations.

After a short walk, he took out the ancient book trying to study a few healing incantations he knew. He started to test them one by one even though he didn't know if it's useful or not.

Chu Yunsheng didn't know how exactly Yuan Qi was going to heal his injured muscles, broken bones and nerves. All he could feel was that Yuan Qi slowly stopped transforming his body and began to merge into those injured areas. Then, the pains slowly stopped.

He limped across the highway while reciting the healing incantations. The sky still had hazy shimmer but it did not seem to give anyone hope. The longer he walked the more dead bodies he discovered. Men, women, kids, old people, there were so many bodies that it completely blocked the highway. He had to step on those bodies in order to cross the highway. With just a few minutes of walking on the highway, his legs were already covered with horrifying blood.

He did not know how many bodies there were, he felt like as if all the people that escaped from Shen Cheng city had died here! The longer he limped on the highway, the more scared he was. He felt like he was in the hell walking on an endless road that made of dead bodies. It was dead silent, utterly terrifying. He didn't even see any live insects!

He did not think that he can hold it much longer. When he stood on a pile of the dead body his throat began to move, then he finally broke down and shouted. “Anyone still alive? Anyone?  Still alive?...”

No one answered him, it was still dead silent.

‘All dead? They were all dead? Not even a scream?’

He refused to believe it, he still shouted while limped across the highway. “Is anyone still alive? Is anyone still alive?”

A pile of the bodies after another pile of the bodies. It was freezing and quiet, they were like the outsiders watching him shouting but not answering him.

“...anyone…”

Chu Yunsheng's voice became quieter and quieter, he became more and more desperate.

Finally, he heard a weak noise coming from a pile of bodies. There seemed to be a car underneath the pile of bodies.

His heart started to jump rapidly. He only had one thought: “someone is still alive, someone is still alive!”

He threw away the walking stick, used his fastest speed to run towards the pile of bodies. It was a small Volkswagen car, there were a lot of incomplete bodies piled up on top of the car, the voice was coming from inside the car.

Chu Yunsheng hurriedly moved the dead bodies away. Soon, he discovered a hole on top of the car, he then used his power to open the car’s door by force. A gust of terrible corrosive liquid smell instantly came out from inside the car.

At first, he saw a woman, she was facing downwards and lying in the space between the back seats and the front seats of the car. Her two feet were tightly stuck in the gaps next to the seats and her hands tightly grasped the handles below the seat. Her fingers were injured, the bones were broken and almost bent to the opposite direction, it only left a few thin and long strip of skins that barely hold those fingers together to prevent them from falling apart.

Her back had several big holes, presumably, she was stabbed by the red-shelled insect’s leg for several times, she even lost her half skull. But she still held it there as if she was protecting something much much more important than her life.

The sound just came from below her. Chu Yunsheng seemed to realize something, he immediately tried to move the body away. however, she was still stuck there. He had no choice but to slice the entire car including her legs into halves. Then, he discovered the thing that she used her life to protect. It was a 4-5 years old little girl.

The little girl's hair was plaited and she was wearing a blue cotton coat, she was holding a stuffed toy and her face was as pale as a ghost, there was a huge hole in her stomach. She was already dead. The voice came from the stuffed toy which was covered with blood.

Chu Yunsheng was beside himself with the upset. He sat on the ground and leaned against the car’s door. He could not even control his breath.
 
Suddenly the ground started to shake again like an earthquake!

“Is it the golden shell insect or other monsters?” Chu Yunsheng sneered and then laughed out loud. “Come… come you those bastards, they all died, all died, I don't want to live either!”

“Boom … Boom… Boom”

The shockwave constantly came from a distance, and each time it would shake Chu Yunsheng and the car behind him.

Underneath the hazy shimmer, he saw a monster that could destroy everything on the earth appeared.

A gigantic long leg monster slowly appeared on the horizon. It was so big that he did not even know how to describe it. Each one of its legs was almost as tall as a thirty-story high building. The shockwave occurred every time when its leg hit the ground! And it made whole ground shaking.

It appeared on the horizon and disappeared on the horizon. It did not notice Chu Yunsheng at all.

Chu Yunsheng lost his hope. ‘this world is long gone! it is over!’

He quietly took out the stuffed toy and sat on the hillside. He was staring at the endless bodies while unconsciously taking out two brand new batteries and replacing the old ones in the stuffed toy.

Suddenly, the wind seemed to appear, and it seemed to come from all directions and blew at Chu Yunsheng. It made his broken grey coat flap constantly in the wind.
 
As Chu Yunsheng pressed a button on the stuffed toy, an Innocent little girl's voice wafted through the air in this Saha World:

”Firefly, Firefly, fly slowly

Summer night, summer night, wind blowing slowly

A child who fears dark, please sleep tight

Let fireflies give you a light

Little glowing bodies in the night

Guide travelers at night to the right direction

In their short life, they glow all they might

Allowing the dark filled with hope

Firefly, Firefly, fly slowly

My heart, my heart, still chasing…………………..."

Definition of sahā world [娑婆世界] (;  shaba-sekai): the world, which is full of suffering. Often translated as the world of endurance. Sahā means the earth; it derives from a root meaning “to bear” or “to endure.” For this reason, in the Chinese versions of Buddhist scriptures, sahā is rendered as endurance. In this context, the sahā world indicates a world in which people must endure suffering. It is also defined as an impure land

and I hope you could endure the suffering to carry on reading this book. XD......
