Chapter 171 into the giant tomb

Chapter 171 into the giant tomb
Chapter 171 into the giant tomb

“Are you sure that what you saw was a red-purple flaming monster?” Chu Yunsheng asked a young man whose name was Zhang Huan. He was also a Rank-1 dark warrior.

“Yes, Captain Chu, I was the lookout at that time. I saw it through the binoculars. It was that thing killed my brother. I'll never forget it!” Zhang Huan gritted his teeth and said.

"How many did you see? Chu Yunsheng asked again. If it was more than two, he would drop his plan immediately. Although sealing this type of monster was very attempting to him, he still didn't want to risk his life.

“We only saw one, but I don't know if there is more,” Zhang Huan thought for a second and said.

"Thank you for your information, you may rest now." Chu Yunsheng nodded his head.

“Yao Xiang, go back to the office building to tell Ding Yan, that I'm going to check that purple flaming monster, if there is anything urgent, tell the people on the defence line to fire the flares towards the other side of the river.”

Based on the limited information, he suspected that there was probably only one red-purple flaming monster on the other side of the river. This was a great opportunity for him, he probably wouldn't have any more opportunities like this in the future. So he decided to take a risk. If there was any danger, he had enough ice elemental talismans to help him to run away.

The reason why he needed the monster so badly was mainly because of the two aliens. A red-purple flaming monster was almost as powerful as him, so he could use it to fight those two aliens in the future.

Although Chu Yunsheng had joined the woman in the white dress at the moment, he still did not trust her.

Ding Yan had already alerted the ice and fire combat teams which were led Yao Xiang and Lu Yu. He asked them to be always on the high alert to watch out for the cloaked man.

“Okay brother Chu, be careful!” said Yao Xiang.

Chu Yunsheng nodded his head. Comparing to the last time he crossed the river, he had lesser pressure and concerns this time!

If there was any danger, he believed that with his speed, he would still be able to get away.

After Yao Xiang left, Chu Yunsheng immediately started to make the monster seal talisman. He was planning to make two of them, not just one of them.

If he wanted to successfully find the red-purple flaming monster, with the little tiger’s “detection” ability was not enough. Without the golden shell, he could not get into the swarm.

He borrowed a small boat from the military and quietly rowed the boat across the river. Since the monolith flew away, the surface of the river became very quiet, the black fog had also disappeared. That water monster which looked like an upside down shuttlecock had also disappeared from the river and never showed up again.

Since the tombs were destroyed, the slimy substances which were all over the ground had also shrunk away from the riverside. Many bodies of the monsters were also slowly moved back to Jin Ling city one after another by the military. It only left with different sizes of craters on the frontline and some big tombs’ remains, which the military could not take it away.

Chu Yunsheng activated his armour immediately after he crossed the river. He carefully looked for the tracks that Zhang Huan mentioned, and lurked towards the swarm with the little tiger. Sometimes when they noticed one or two green shells flying over their heads, they would quickly hide into a carter and covered themselves with the burnt soil until the green shells left.

This was a secret hunt, and both he and the little tiger were experienced in it. Especially the little tiger, it was able to react to different levels of dangers, and that was how Chu Yunsheng was going to find the red-purple flaming monster.

One man and one tiger hopped from one crater to another, slowly and steadily approaching the slimy substances. Soon, they saw a crowded swarm appeared in their eyesight, and it seemed like the insects in the swarm were busy doing something.

He was hiding in one of the craters that were close to the slimy substances. As he slowly moved his head up, reaching the edge of the crater, which was on the same level of the ground, he began to secretly search for his target.

But the result was very disappointing. Not a single golden shell, let alone the red-purple flaming monster. Apart from the red shells and the green shells, all he saw were worms and countless bloody meatballs that were as big as adult humans.

Chu Yunsheng was constantly changing craters around the edge of the slimy substances, he was hoping that he could find a golden shell from the other places.

It took him almost half an hour, but he still could not find anything. Eventually, he gave up.

‘Probably golden shells like to live under the ground. Unless there are some special circumstances, otherwise, they wouldn’t come out of the ground.’ He thought.

Just he was thinking to go back to the city, suddenly, a tomb’s tube emerged from the ground in the center of the crater he was hiding. It wriggled for a second, but there was nothing coming out of the tube.

This was the type of tube that presumably connected to the center of tombs. When Chu Yunsheng bombed other tombs, he had controlled the red shells to crawl into those tubes before.

Looking at the tube, Chu Yunsheng suddenly had an insane idea. He wanted to get into the tube!

This was the only way to get into the swarm without being noticed by the insects in the swarm, but it was also very risky. However, there wasn’t much time for him to think it through carefully. If he could not make a decision straight away, once the tube started to generate the slimy liquid, he would lose his chance.

Looking at the little tiger on his side, he gritted his teeth.

“Do it!” he quickly made up his mind.

He really wanted to get a red-purple flaming monster. If he had it, he would have the ability to defeat the two aliens, he could even suppress the swarm’s attack for a while.

He and little tiger slowly approached the center of the crater and looked inside the tube to see if there was anything.

Using the tip of the submachine gun, he poked the outside of the red tube for a few seconds to see if there was any reaction from it.

Although he had controlled the red shell to crawl into this kind of tubes before, he didn't know if this type of tubes had some kinds of detection mechanisms or not. He still remembered that the tentacles monster he fought back in the horror city had eyeballs on its tube, so he needed to be careful.

‘No reactions.’

He poked a few more times and then nervously looked at the insects in the swarm.

‘Also no reactions.’

Until he was certain that they wouldn't react to anything that he did in the tube, did he finally get into the tube with the little tiger.

The tube was big. Chu Yunsheng could even stand up straight inside. But its stinky smell was even worse than the air in sewers. The internal surface of the tune was very sticky, whenever he lifts his feet, he would bring up a very long sticky liquid.

The only thing good about this was, if the tube was curved up, the sticky liquid would help him to stand still.

Chu Yunsheng was using a dim glowing stick to see the inside the tube. He was worried that the internal of the tube would have reactions to the strong bright light, it might even alert other insects as well.

He just needed some dim light to see what was in front of him, so the glowing stick was more than enough.

However, being able to hear insects crawling on the ground above him from time to time, making him very nervous inside the tube.

He went deeper and deeper into the tube until he reached the end. Then he saw an open space.

He didn't know whether if he had arrived at the central of tombs or not. But there were many tubes filled with some kinds of liquids hanging above their heads.

There were also some sticky meatballs here. However, unlike the meatballs he saw outside the tomb, they were hanging above the ground by those tubes. There were also two smaller tubes connected to each one of those meatballs. It seemed like they were being constantly injected with some liquids.

Suddenly, a sticky meatball near Chu Yunsheng started to squirm. Then the meatball began to shrink smaller and smaller, until its surface tightly wrapped around the thing inside of it. Based on its tightly wrapped outlines, Chu Yunsheng immediately realized something.

“Co… co… co…”

Soon, with the help from the glowing tubes inside the tomb, he saw a golden shell's head that was as big as a bus breaking out of the “deflated” meatball!
