Chapter 67 The mission begins

Chapter 67 The mission begins
Du Qishan did not take too long to consider. He agreed Chu Yunsheng’s conditions. Chu Yunsheng was staring at him and he did not have another choice. the flames monster was too powerful, it frightened them even they just thought about it.

Because he had already killed Gan Ziqiang, so Yao Xiang didn't need to hide outside anymore. Chu Yunsheng had asked him to stay with the troops. because what Chu Yunsheng would be doing was very dangerous, Yao Xiang should not stay with him.

He planned to attack those meat worms. according to professor Sun. those monsters belong to Nephrozoa clade in the animal kingdom. Chu Yunsheng had seen one before. the monster's body was 10 meters long and they often liked to stay around the branches on the middle of giant plants, the colour of their bodies could be changed in order to disguise themselves as giant rattans.

In addition to that, although the giant strange fruits were the meat worm’s main food, they also eat human and those red-eye monsters.  Chu Yunsheng had even discovered some terrifying monsters’ bodies in their faeces. He had never seen those remains before. those remains were small and they had very sharp teeth and claws. He did not know why he had not seen a live one in the fog before.

The meat worm did not have scales nor did it have a shell, it was just one pile of meat did not seem to have any defence ability. But the truth was, even when Chu Yunsheng used the sword forms, he still couldn't injure it. That pile of meat was sticky, slippery and with strong elasticity. Chu Yunsheng had never seen anything could stretch that long before!  Every time when he tried to cut it, the sword would push its skin deep into its body without injuring it.

But it did not mean that Chu Yunsheng did not have another way to deal with it. For the time being, he would try to make the meat worms to consume its energy faster by using the red-shelled insect’s corrosive secretions to burn its skin. It would damage its skin’s elasticity, then Chu Yunsheng would use Qian Bi sword to chop it into several chunks.

Chu Yunsheng had stored a large amount of those secretions. now it was the time to put it to use. It consumed him a great amount of Yuan qi every time when he tried to kill a meat worm. This was what he wanted. Because it would speed up his Qi cultivation cycle.

He could also choose to make a lot of offensive talismans, but he only got a dozen of absorption talisman left. So if he chose to do it that way, he would run out of backup to supply him a large amount of Yuan Qi when he needed to break through Yuan Tian stage two’s barriers.

He needed to kill the monsters and use their energy to kill more of them.

The cultivation process for Yuan Tian stage one wasn’t sophisticated,  he just needed to repeat the Qi circulation inside his body again and again and again. it was like building a base for the higher level, there was no shortcut he could take.

It was simple but it didn't mean it was easy, it was simple, but it didn't mean it was weak. When he could perfectly perform the simplest sword move then it would become a powerful skill. Yuan Tian stage one was just like that.

In terms of the rules and principles of incantations only until when he reached Yuan Tian stage two, would he be able to study and understand it.

This was the method that ancient book taught him, from knowing nothing to imitation then gradually realised the principles and finally understood it. It was a step by step process to help him to steadily build up his power.

Chu Yunsheng looked at his watch. It was 5 hours away from the fog walls changing its sequence. he took the latest channel map that shows the connection between each fog sections from Fang Ziweng, and also promised commander Du that he would return to Jin Jiang building in five hours, but the troops must have got the monster's bodies ready.

And in the next three days, he would return to the building in every 12 hours,  it was not only for the monster's bodies but also the latest channel map that professors deduced.

The red-eye monster did not have many Yuan Qi, but its number was incredibly huge. every time he encountered one, he would get into endless troubles. So on the way, Chu Yunsheng would always try to avoid having contact with them, luckily the meat worms often appear in the middle part of a giant tree trunk, it saved him a lot of troubles.

The bird shape flame monster was the most dangerous one. every time when it flapped its imaginary-like flame wings, the fire would be tossed out from its wing and became a blazing fireball, the tremendous amount of fire Yuan Qi would be unleashed. Even the weaker awakenings would be burned into ashes,  not to mention the ordinary human being.

The Troops already left the building. not only they needed to collect the monster's bodies, but also they needed to recruit as many awakenings as possible. everyone was preparing themselves for the mission which was to destroy the fog cores.

Chu Yunsheng chose the direction that opposite to the troops. From the section 9, he chose to go to the central city in section two. it was an area where he had been before.

This area was used to be the most prosperous area in Kun city, the business rate for the shops used to be extremely high. but it did not stop the people. The shops were opened one after another. but now all Chu Yunsheng could see were the broken shops left abandoned in the fog.

All the Buildings were covered by the giant plants. Chu Yunsheng chose a thick plant rattan which was over 2 meters thick and slowly climbed upwards. the rattan was slippery, it was slowly moving from time to time as if it was alive. He then jumped from one rattan to the other and climbed into a building through the windows.
Soon after he got inside that building, the noticed a meat worm was hunting its preys on the other side of the building. he quickly turned around and headed to the window which he climbed in. he decided to use the rattan as cover to go around the building and to attack the meat worm by surprise.

The building he was in used to be a book stored. the books were scared on the floor, half of them were burned, it seemed like someone was trying to burn them to get warm. however, he only discovered few bodies, no one else was alive inside the building.

Chu Yunsheng stepped on the paper ashes and scattered books. he soon returned to the giant rattan and started to climb higher,  until he reached to another thinner rattan which crossed the one he was climbing. The thinner rattan had directly connected the branch that meat worm was staying.

Its preys were the red-eye monsters right below his branch, about 3-4 of them.

Meat worm's hunting technique was very simple, it’s two months, one at the front and one at back could be rapidly enlarged and sucking the air in. even though the red-eye monsters were trying their best to fly away, they would still be sucked into those mouths.

Chu Yunsheng already took out a bag which was made of the red-shelled insect’s belly.  inside it was filled with corrosive secretion, he slowly climbed down until he reached another rattan's intersection. he stopped and waited until there was only one red-eye monster left, then he lightly jumped off the intersections and slid down the rattan. He used his left hand to open the bag, the whole bag’s corrosive secretion were poured onto the worm’s body, some of it even fell into its mouth!

The meat worm did not have any eyes. It relied on its body to detect the movements and the smells in the surroundings, only then would it be able to tell if it was an enemy or the prey. Because Chu Yunsheng had energy shield and combat armour, it completely blocked his smell from coming out, and also because when climbing down the rattan he did not make any huge movement. so only when he commenced the attack did the worm notice he was near.

But it was too late for it to react. Chu Yunsheng was too close to it. the corrosive secretion was already spread all over its body. it sensed the danger and started to violently twist its body. It had already given up on hunting the last red-eye monster, instead, it was trying to crawl upwards along the branch and headed straight towards Chu Yunsheng.
