Dark Blood Age - Volume 1 - Chapter 61
chapter 61 Meat worms
The middle age man saw they only have three people left, he started to panic. He immediately thought an idea and shouted:’’ this man killed three of us in a row, he must have reached his limit, we still have three people, we will definitely win!’’
However he didn't know that Chu yun sheng's Qi is so dense that only he only consumed half of his yuan qi, it's not difficult for him to kill three more people.
Three people charged towards chu yun sheng, but Chu yun sheng only focus on middle age man, he ignored rest two people' attack.
Fire warrior's defence isn't very strong, chu yun sheng's sudden lunge attack break his defence straight away. The sword was stab into his chest, his eyes were wide open as if he couldn't believe what happened even after he died.
Rest of two people saw the leader is dead and their attack didn't seem to work on chu yun sheng, the thought of retreat starts to emerge from deep inside their heart. they backed away immediately when they saw chu yun sheng has not pulled out of the sword.
Combat armour had already been broken. there was a huge crack on it, if they carry on attacking him, they could easily injure chu yun sheng, however, they decided to run away!
they did what they shouldn't have done in a battle, it is to reveal their back to the enemy. chu yun sheng chased them, stabbed the first one and headed towards the last one. when he stabbed the second one, a strange thing happened.
This man's ability is very strange, his ability is like the ’’steel beast’’ who he heard when he was in shen cheng city, he had a very strong defence, chu yun sheng hacks down the sword several times, it still didn't kill him. His body was jarred by the sword's impact。 it causes him to constantly throw up the blood when Chu yun sheng's sword hit him.
Chu yun sheng was shocked. he continued to infuse the yuan into the sword until the power of the sword reaches its peak point, only when he uses all his strength to hack the sword down three times, did he just chopped off the man's arm.
The man was begging for mercy, but Chu yun sheng had already lost his mind, he kept continuously chopping the guys until he died completely.
Yao xiang also dealt the guy who fell off the roof. chu yun sheng walked over the bodies and singled Yao xiang to go through the back door to attack the rest of group from the bottom, and himself will attack from the roof, he has no sympathy over those cannibalistic monsters.
When he reaches the stairs, his eyes glanced at the dead body of the strange awakening warriors. chu yun sheng had an idea, he has always been using the she yuan fu on the monster. but never thought of trying it on awakenings warriors. according to professor sun's explanation on that day, chu yun sheng felt that the awakening warriors'energy definitely is yuan qi that ancient book mentioned. and the warrior he killed, his strange ability is exactly like metal element the ancient book described.
Chu yun sheng took out absorption yuan fu tried to use it on the dead body. as he expected a stream of golden gas slowly flew towards the she yuan fu until it becomes two golden patterns on absorption yuan fu. :’’ as i expected, absorption yuan fu could be used on the dead awakening warrior's body, and this guy's ability also belongs to metal element which is relatively rare! ’’
If he could absorb yuan qi from this guy, that means he could absorb from rest of ice and fire warriors. he took the she yuan fu started to going around the roof to absorb yuan qi from rest of people, he immediately filled up two absorption yuan fu. just that leader provided him 4 unit of flame patterns!
Chu yun sheng thought: absorption yuan fu could even absorb the yuan qi from a dead body. Didn't it become a strange ’’Xi Xing Da Fa’’?1.(see footnote 1.)
Unfortunately level two she yuan fu could not absorb creature when they're alive, otherwise, it really becomes ’’’’Xi Xing Da Fa’’1.
But luckily he found out absorption yuan fu's additional ability, so in the future, he does not need to worried about he will be exhausted with yuan qi!
Chu yun sheng stored the she yuan fu and went down the stairs, the three awakenings warriors'bodies which were on the ground floor he decided to absorb them later when he got down the stairs.
When he just arrived the third floor which was original the rest area of this club, he heard a quavering voice said:’’please don't kill me! I will give you everything!!’’
At this time, chu yun sheng saw yao xiang had already got to the third floor. Yao xiang threw few people who were about to run down the stairs to the ground
Yao xiang said to chu yun sheng:’’ none of them is awakenings, they are all here, did not lose a single one of them.’’
Apart from those 4-5 people. on a bar next to them there are 7-8 young women were tied together. Chu yun sheng suspected those people probably are their ’’food’’.
The quavering voice came from a man with an unshaven face, he saw both ways were blocked by chu yun sheng and yao xiang, then immediately turned the whole floor upside down to look for something. he begged:’’please don't kill us, we are just ordinary people, we are not the awakenings like boss Jiang.’’ just right after he said, he then pushed a barrel towards chu yun sheng and said:’’ this is all our food, you can take it all, please don't kill us. oh... also ...... Boss Jiang also got alcohol, let me get it for you.’’
He did not wait for chu yun sheng's response, run back to the bar and desperately trying to find something behind the bar while mumbling:’’i remember it was here.......’’
He did not even notice his hand was Punctured by the broken drawer, he just kept looking for the alcohol he mentioned as if that thing is going to save his life.
Chu yun sheng looked at the things inside the barrel, it was a pile of white meat. he immediately thought of those people were eating the human flesh. his stomach instantly turned upside down. If it was not that he used to see so many dead bodies, he probably vomited already.
The unshaven man was still looking for alcohol, he kicked away a woman who climbed over the bar counter in panic. finally, he found a bottle an alcohol with a blurry label. He was so happy that he lift up the alcohol and shouted:’’i found it, i found it!’’
But then he saw chu yun sheng's stern face and his eye were still staring at the white meat inside the barrel. he immediately thought of something and rushed over. He was tipped over and crawling on the ground:’’boss.... this isn't human flesh, really! If you don't believe me, i can show you.’’ he said it very fast and nervously
:’’the rumour was intentionally spread by boss Jiang, he wanted to intimate the stranger, so we could be safe here, the half human bodies you saw outside, there were all eaten by the monsters. we just hang them there to scare the people away.’’ he then grabbed the meat tried to eat it as if that is the way to prove the meat isn't the human flesh.
Chu yun sheng knit his brows:’’if it isn't the human flesh, then what is it?’’
The unshaven man quickly answered:’’boss, no one dare to eat human meat, we are not crazy! That meat came from the monsters on the trees outside this buildings. they were caught by Boss Jiang and his group, one monster is enough for us to eat for several days. This monster is the only thing we found that we can eat.’’
The rest of people also nodded their head and said:’’yes.... Yes... they are the monster's meat’’
The unshaven man worried chu yun sheng won't believe him, he pointed at the women and said:’’boss, as long as you let me go, i will tell you everything i know. Those women were caught by Boss Jiang. if he likes them, he will keep them for days for his own pleasure, if he does not like them, he will rip off their clothes, use them as bait to lure those meat worms!’’
This is the first time chu yun sheng heard of someone using the human to lure a monster, and it seems like he has never seen this type of monster before.
The unshaven man left the bottle of alcohol in front of chu yun sheng and pander to him:’’ if they are not well-behaved or the Boss Jiang fed up with them, they would be ripped off clothes, and Doctor Ding would stitch the bombs inside their stomach, then hang them on the tree. ’’
They won't die immediately, the more they struggled, they will attract meat worms more easily. the bombs were infused with some kind of energy by those awakenings warriors. as long as the worms ate those bomb, the energy will unleash the flame to trigger the bomb. usually, it will severely damage the worms, then Boss Jiang and his group will attack the monster together try to kill the meat worms, then store its meat as food.’’
The unshaven man then dragged out a neat and clean man and pointed at a corner of the room said:’’ this is doctor Ding, those are the equipment Boss Jiang got from a nearby hospital, it is used to stitch the energy bomb. i and other two people were responsible for the bombs. ’’
Just when he said this, his eyes suddenly flashed a sign of happiness. he pointed the women on the side said:’’Boss, if you keep us alive, we can still prepare the bomb for you, Boss Jiang got us a lot of materials, you could still use them. those women if you like them, you can keep them, if you don't like them, i will show you how to catch the meat worms. if you could also spare some meat to us... not a lot......just enough to keep us alive. so we can carry on working for you! ’’
