Chapter 360 Sky City: Jin Ling

 Chapter 360 Sky City: Jin Ling
Edited by Chubby;

A woman whose hair was tied up on her head stopped Chu Yunsheng, and said:
“Can you help me?”

She could only be identified as a woman due to her voice. Wrapped in thick, messy clothes, and with an unkempt appearance, it was very hard to tell their gender just by her looks.

The woman was struggling to move a dead body. She was followed by a child about 6 or 7 years old.

Seeing that there was no response from Chu Yunsheng, she looked anxiously at the sky that was getting darker and darker. She begged: "Brother, this is my younger brother (the dead body). The child is too young to lift it. I want to bury him there, so the kid will have a place to commemorate the dead.”

Chu Yunsheng looked at her with glassy eyes. Then he looked at the cold body on the ground. There was a hole in its body caused by a red shell insect. The body’s internal organs were held in place by a piece of cloth, and it was already frozen into an ice cube.

Chu Yunsheng wiped off the snow from his mouth and breathed in the freezing air. He then began to lift up the man's body by its feet. Both of them moved slowly and clumsily towards the burial zone planned by Hong Kong general administration department.

The air was filled with depressed smells. The child seemed to be frightened by the war that happened in the past few days. His eyes fluttered in dismay, his lips were purple, and he kept pressing them together very hard while tightly holding the corner of the woman's clothes without saying anything.

"Brother, what about your family?" The woman was lifting the body's arms while asking the question as if it was a normal topic.


Chu Yunsheng spat out the snow in his mouth, and began to move his lips. However, his vocal cords weren’t functioning properly.

Unlike Chu Yunsheng, the woman seemed to feel numb about losing her family member.

Seeing Chu Yunsheng looking dispirited, she began to talk to him like nothing had happened.  “Lost everything? Sigh!~ it’s our fate. Brother, don’t be sad. I was like you when my husband died, I cried for seven days and seven nights non-stop. I cried until my tears dried up. But now? I’ve become used to it, and once you become used to it, your feelings will become numb, and you will find out that it is not a big deal. ”

Chu Yunsheng was bowing his head down and lifting the body with a numb expression. But the woman still kept talking like she suddenly found someone that would listen to her:  “Brother, if you are alone, when we get back, I'll introduce someone to you. You see, the government is encouraging us to help each other. To us, the best way to do that is to live together as a family. As the old saying goes: Two people that live together will know how to take care of each other, it is much better than living alone. If you are sick, there will always be someone beside you.”

Suddenly, Chu Yunsheng knitted his brows and glanced around as if he was looking for something.

The woman thought that Chu Yunsheng was interested, so she carried on: “Finding a good woman to live with is not easy. Looking at your situation. You definitely don't want those who already have kids. Those without any ability to work are not suitable either. The ideal ones are those who are able to work, have the ability to endure hunger, those who are not sick, and know how to take care of you.”

Chu Yunsheng suddenly stopped, his glassy eyes suddenly became focused and he looked very serious.

The woman didn't notice the change. When she was about to say something again, a man suddenly appeared. He was carrying a broken backpack, limping towards the woman with happiness.

“Brother,” she said to Chu Yunsheng, “This is my man.” The woman dropped the body, and walked toward the man. “Elder Niu, how is it? Did you get it?”

The man put down the broken backpack and stroked the kid's head. He smiled, and said, “Luckily, I found my aunty early. I got some before the government got there. Those fuckers from the government even want to take away the food that the master insect gave to my aunty.”

The woman opened the bag and looked inside. A smile instantly appeared on her face. She quickly closed the bag, and gave her man a strange look. She said: “Careful what you say. They will arrest you for that. We are just regular citizens…”

The man smiled fatuously: “Okay, okay, oh right, I also heard something very strange. It is said that the master insect had a kid with a human, and that kid is currently with the people from the government.”

The woman cracked up, and said: “You believe that? I also heard that the master insect is Chu Clan's master's relative.”

Her laugh made Chu Yunsheng feel uncomfortable. Why could a person that lost her husband, her parents, and her brother laugh like that next to her dead brother's body?

The man picked up the kid, shook his head, and said: “In this age, any strange thing can happen….”

Chu Yunsheng suddenly stepped way. He felt a familiar fire elemental energy coming from the ground below them.

Before the man finished talking, the ground began to shake. Suddenly, an infested human that was almost 5 meters tall dug out of the ground.

It was heavily injured, its shells were heavily broken, and there was even a hole in its stomach.

The man and the woman were running as fast as they could while shouting for help. However, as if God was making fun of them, three more infested humans dug out of the ground in front of them. They got scared and sat down on the ground instantly.

Chu Yunsheng stood in front of the first infested human, and didn't move. He couldn't understand their language anymore. The man, the woman, and the kid were forced to crawl back to Chu Yunsheng again.

In the next second. The man and the woman’s eyes opened wide. Chu Yunsheng reached his hand out to touch the infested human. Those monsters were made by him, and they still had consciousness in their mind. Although Chu Yunsheng's insect life was over, their painful and conflicted life has only just begun.

The sound of troops marching was getting closer and closer to them. He raised his head and suddenly disappeared in front of the couple.

Before the couple was able to react, he reappeared holding a man dressed in an energy practitioner's uniform.

An energy practitioner didn't even have the ability to resist!

Chu Yunsheng knew that Lee Taidou was following him since the end of the war. He suspected that it was Huo Jiashan who had asked him to do so, but he didn't care too much about it.

Lee Taidou also understood that Chu Yunsheng, the monster, definitely knew that it was followed. So when Chu Yunsheng caught him. He was not shocked.

“I don't even know how to call you anymore. Chief Huo asked me to follow you. He wanted to talk to you.” Lee Taidou said respectfully.

Chu Yunsheng pointed at his throat, and shook his head. Then, he pointed at the four infested humans, then pointed at the troops that were coming towards them.

He had agreed with Huo Jiashan to deliver the bomb, but he hadn’t told Huo Jiashan about the 18 infested humans.

Since he was going to leave this place. Chu Yunsheng wanted to resolve this problem.

Lee Taidou immediately understood what Chu Yunsheng meant. So he quickly ran towards the troops to stop them.

Chu Yunsheng didn't know what Lee Taidou told them. As he approached the troops, and attempted to borrow a pen and notebook from an officer, all the soldiers, including that officer stepped back in panic. All their faces turned pale with terror.

Chu Yunsheng still managed to get a pen and a notebook. When he wrote down the secret of infested humans, the officers and Lee Taidou instantly broke out in a cold sweat. The secret was beyond what they could handle, they needed to report to headquarters immediately.

Chu Yunsheng asked Lee Taidou to ask those infested humans that if they wanted to stay or leave.

As he expected, all of them chose to stay in Hong Kong. Despite all of their heavy injuries one of the infested humans carved his name: Ren Tongyan, on the ground while enduring the pain.

Instantly, the officer who was scared of Chu Yunsheng broke into tears. He ran towards the infested humans and cried: “Commander, is it really you? I am Xiao Li, from the elder San's regiment, our division…. Our division…”

Monsters suddenly became their own people! Everyone was lost.

‘So the rumors were true.’ The couple thought nervously.

When the scientists who were originally hiding behind the troops realized what had happened, they all rushed towards the front and ordered the soldiers to protect those infested humans and escort them toward the academy of sciences.

    ……

“Are you leaving?” Lee Taidou asked.

But Chu Yunsheng didn't answer him. He quietly left, and gradually disappeared into the snow.

Suddenly, Lee Taidou couldn't help but shout into the snow: “Are you a human or an insect?”


    ******

Three days later, an ear piercing siren suddenly rang out in the originally calm Jing Ji islands.

A heavy-duty jet fighter that was fuming thick black smoke crashed into Jing Ji island from the sky.

On the wreckage of the jet fighter, it was clearly written:  Sky City - Jin Ling

------------- translator's note------------

Finally finished another volume.

Sigh… I really like the dumb insect. It reminds me of my stupid dog…..

Anyway. Here are my thoughts on this volume.

This volume is both sad and important to the entire book. It is going to affect how other humans treat MC in the later volumes.

Just like Lee Taidou. No one knows what MC is anymore. Is he human? Or is he a monster?

We all know MC is a human because we have read the story from the beginning. But what about the characters in the book? They don't have the precious information as we do.

Remember when the characters in the book tried to condemn the commander in chief Wu Fanghou's action in chapter 329? The Author vaguely and indirectly uses this character’s words to explain the importance of information in this book.

For instance, in the same chapter 329,  Huo Jiashan talked about Ke Qianer claimed that her actions were affected by the bow was a paradox. This paradox also applies to MC as well. Were MC’s emotions and decisions really affected by his insect’s body or was it just his mind trying to trick him to think that way?

Now. Since this paradox also applies to MC, then, the mysterious advisor/ young master’s words also apply to MC.  he/she said that  “ Everyone has an inner devil in them. People who believe it, would restrain themselves, people who don't, would let loose the chain of the devil. It has nothing to do with the bow... ”  If we use this sentence, plus what happened to MC in the past, it is easy to understand why MC would think that way.

Of course, this is just my opinion. You can also treat it as MC’s actions and decisions were affected by his insect’s body.

Ah also, the reason why I said that the advisor is he/she is because of Ke Qianer’s words and how other people treated that advisor.

Hint 1. In chapter 329  when Liang Xingdong wanted to touch the advisor, he suddenly stopped and took back his hand. The chapter also mentioned that it seemed like he was fear of something.

Hint 2. In chapter 335  “Master, you mean…. He left Hong Kong? ” suddenly a strange luster flashed in Song Mi’s eyes.

Hint 3 in chapter 356 Song Mi said that He is your best choice…

And lastly, hint 4 Ke Qianer’s words. “Everyone only knows her as a man. However, no one knows that she has a strange disease since she was a child. She is, in fact, a girl.  ”

I am terrible at organizing my thoughts. Here is what I thought so far. You will definitely be able to discover more than I did in the chapters…...

As usual, I need one month to read next volume to establish some terms first. So no update for a month. I am also currently working with Chubby to correct old chapters’ mistakes. So it might take longer than usual.

But if you have any questions, you can use the latest chapter discussion thread on novel update forum to ask me. Here is the link

https://forum.novelupdates.com/threads/dark-blood-age.62533/page-2#post-3992306

Or you can ask me in discord Channel about the progress.

…….. volume 6…...

After years of suffering, humanity is finally able to stop the situation from getting worse. Many heroes and forces begin to rise. However, will they be able to take back their own land and expel all the monsters from earth? Will more aliens appear?

Will MC carry on his journey to the North, or will he be trapped in an area again?

Jin Ling city has finally re-appeared again, but will MC be able to find out?  And what was the voice in his mind at the end of volume 3? How did the voice know that Jin Ling city was not fallen? Why did Shang say that Chu Yunsheng was not supposed to exist in this world or any worlds?

Will the aliens in the white dress be still hunting him?

Stay tuned for the next volume!

Volume 6 The Rise Of Heroes
