Chapter 69 I believe him

 Chapter 69 I believe him
"Commander! Commander! " a sentry was holding a gun and anxiously running towards Commander Du, he gave the commander Du a salute and  then whispered to him:" Commander, all the insect’s bodies went missing!!"


“What!” Commander Du snapped, that was more than 30 red shelled insect’s bodies, how could it suddenly go missing?

Sentry tried to lower his voice and said with concerns:"I saw Mr. Chu went in there, the bodies disappeared after he came out!”


Commander Du instantly raised his head and looked at Chu Yunsheng who had already passed them and now was walking towards the meeting room.

He was in a great shock, what did he do?  Don’t tell me his way of levelling up is to eat those monster's body? When he thought of those monster’s disgusting bodies and the possibility that Chu Yunsheng gobbled up those bodies, commander Du almost throw up!

But then he quickly adjusted his emotions and facial expressions. no matter he was a human or a monster, as long as Chu Yunsheng was on his side, then they were still allies of one another. he told the sentry sternly:" do not tell anyone about his, it is now a top secret. from now on,  the back of the building will only be guarded by you. do not interrupt Mr. Chu, whatever he does, just leave him alone!”

“Yes, sir!” sentry gritted his teeth, there was a sign of determination in his eyes.

“You may leave now!” Commander Du waved his hand, he felt powerless but he still needed to explain the situation about Chu Yunsheng to those 8 new recruited awakenings warriors

Those new recruits were pissed off with the way Chu Yunsheng ignored their doubt. they were all saying that they could not continue with the cooperation. there was no way they would fight for them without any actual proof that Chu Yunsheng could actually do something. some people even asked commander to fight Chu Yunsheng in a duel.

“Duel!?” a sound suddenly came from the doorway, it was Yao Xiang who just came back from outside, he was assigned with a mission to hunt red-eye monsters.

Yao Xiang was a straightforward person。 he said Bluntly:"want a duel! Brother Chu won’t do it, probably he is scared to hurt your guys. I have never seen anyone could live under his sword attack,  no matter a monster or a human!....... ”

The skinny old man knitted his brow and interrupted him:”Young man, if you want to brag, at least make it more believable, sword? we have 8 people, and 8 pairs of eyes, but none of them saw he was holding a sword, not even a pieces of metal!  ”

Yao Xiang had been following Chu Yunsheng for awhile now,  he had already seen many of Chu Yunsheng’s strange abilities, but he would not easily disclose those secrets to others,  he twitched his mouth and carried on saying:"I just need to remind you, believe it or not, it is entirely up to you, I would never lie!i bet you with my head that even all of you are fighting against him, the last person remains standing would still be him! ”

"Commander, I believe Yao Xiang, so I believe Mr. chu’s ability." an officer who was wearing the one bar and three-star epaulette stood out and said sternly,

Commander Du nodded his head.

Then a lot of awakenings from the military also stood out saying that they agreed with him.


The skinny old man sneered, but it was not good for him to carry on questioning anything. After all, the troops had more people, and all of them believed Chu Yunsheng’s ability, if he carried on asking questions, they would consider him as questioning the military, not Chu Yunsheng!

Meanwhile, Chu Yunsheng was smoking a cigarette and standing in a corner of the meeting room quietly. Scientists’ deductions were complicated, plus there weren't any computer to help them to do the calculation. so the progress was very slow. So He still needed to wait for some time to get the new channel map.

The meeting room was illuminated by the candlelights, those candles were gathered by the troops from everywhere inside the city. In the flickering candlelights professors seemed to be unusually busy and tired, some of them could not bear the tiredness just sleep on a bed which were made by several chairs combined together. They were doing their best to draw the channel as soon as possible.

Chu Yunsheng was affected by them, he also made a big yawn after watching them for quite some time. He forced himself to stay awake and started to cultivate Yuan Qi.

Since last time he sensed something from the Preliminary model, he started to pay attention to the Yuan Qi’s circulation inside his body, he wanted to observe the directions that Yuan Qi was circulating inside his body, the states, strength, fluctuations and lastly how the body reacts to it.

This was a very exhausting activity, just less than an hour, Chu Yunsheng could not carry on cultivating Yuan Qi, he seemed to have felt something, but when he tried to grasp that feeling, there was nothing there. There were still too many things he did not understand!


He then thought of those novels he read during the age of light, those people would spend days or years in Qi cultivation and they could even replace it with sleep.

However, only when it came to him, did he realised how difficult it was. If he just cultivates Yuan Qi, he could do it continuously for 6 hours, but if he needed to observe and understand every detail and step during the cultivation just like what he did before, then just after one hour he would start to have extremely painful headaches,


When Chu Yunsheng opened his eye,  he almost had a heart attack, professor Sun was sitting in front of him and smiling at him, his eager eyes made Chu Yunsheng’s hair to stand up!


“What do you want?”Chu Yunsheng forced Yuan Qi inside his body calmed down.


Professor Sun waved his hand:” nothing, I am just curious, oh, right!  Are you scared of seeing dead bodies?"

Chu Yunsheng did not understand what he was saying. he was puzzled. he had seen so many dead bodies that he did not even know how many exactly. from Shen Cheng city to here, not a single road was empty without bodies.

Professor Sun saw he did not have any reaction, he explained in a low voice:”not a regular dead bodies, it is the autopsied bodies, they were the bandits you killed that day! ”


Chu Yunsheng was startled that he instantly jumped up from the chair. his expression instantly changed and his eyes were cold, he almost wanted to activate the armour!


He always had a good impression of this old man. Not only because this old man was not a petty-minded person, but also he respected the soldiers who were protecting him, he always tried his best to repay those soldiers.

This old man was always calming that researchers were not like what he thought was, they would never autopsy the awakenings. he made Chu Yunsheng felt relieved


But this old man suddenly told him that they autopsied the Gan Ziqiang and his people, although Gan Ziqiang was his enemy. but Gan Ziqiang could also use Yuan Qi just like him. today they autopsied Gan Ziqiang, tomorrow it would be some people's case study. And in the future, the one that lying there to be autopsied could be him.

Chu Yunsheng regretted his choice. he probably had been staying with them too long, it made him become careless. he even thought those people were very friendly. How could he be so stupid to let down his guard and cultivated Yuan Qi next to them?

Moreover, he did it even without anyone whom he could trust to guard him. What if they wanted to study him, probably he was dead already.


Professor Sun saw Chu Yunsheng changed his expression, he quickly waved his hand:"Xiao Chu, do not be so anxious, listen to me…... "


Chu Yunsheng tried to calm himself down, he tried to tell himself that he was thinking too much. Commander Du and those scientists still needed him to escape this city, there was no way they would hurt him!

But why would the world become like this!?


He had seen two people were escaping from insect’s attack, one of them broke the other one’s leg, just so he could run away!


He had also seen a kind-hearted little girl tried to share her food with a starving man, but she was stabbed to death and her food was taken away by that man!


He had seen a group of awakenings warriors did not hesitate to help their teammates when an Overwhelming amount of red-eye monsters were attacking them!


He had seen people on the overloaded cars killing each other on the cars and dumping their bodies outside when they were chased by the monsters!


He had seen people using half pieces of bread to lure the same kind into a trap and use their bodies to make a bomb to kill those meat worms like Thug Jiang!


……...


He had seen too many those kinds of things, every time it left a fear deep inside his heart. he was just an ordinary people in the age of light, his life was ordinary and mediocre like others.

Since the dark age began. with just an ordinary people’s mindset, he had endured one tragedy after another, and every tragedy was full of dark and inhuman.  even if he had the ancient book to guarantee his safety, but it still made him become more and more sensitive, more and more vigilant, more and more fragile.

Sometimes, the human was far more terrifying than the monsters!
