chapter 82 play dead

chapter 82 play dead

However, he did not get far until he heard some quick and shuffled footsteps appeared at his back, he was alerted and slightly turned around to looks what was behind. But what he saw next almost scared him to death!!!!

He saw 7 or 8 people were running fast toward him from the other end of the street, and another flame bird was chasing them!

Probably that flame bird had killed all other awakening warriors that was why it kept chasing those people who escape to the west!
 
Chu Yunsheng'sheart jumped rapidly, he couldn't control it. He was so weak right now that he couldn't even kill a meat worm, let alone this flame bird.

His legs started to shake uncontrollably, and he could no longer control his emotions!

His subconscious made him took out the motorbike. He would rather encounter the meat worm now than a flame bird. he knew that even the bike's speed still could not compete with the flame monster, But he still had a slight hope that he would get away.
  
However, it was just a wishful thinking! What made him felt even more desperate was no matter how he tried to start the bike, the bike just wouldn't start.

With the flame bird was getting closer and closer,  Chu Yunsheng finally had a mental breakdown. he kicked the bike. but he didn't realise he was weak right now. he couldn't even stand properly. one kick didn't do anything to the bike, but instead, he was pushed backwards and fell to the ground!

Chu Yunsheng laid on the ground, his heart was as cold as ice: is this how I am going to die!?

At the same time, two words suddenly appeared in his mind: play dead.

He had no other choice but gave it a try! So he just laid there didn't move!

Rapid footsteps finally reached him. The two people who fell behind were killed by the flame bird instantly. The person who ran the fastest directly stepped on Chu Yunsheng’s body. That person used Chu Yunsheng's body as jump pad to make a  jump. the armour has already broken, so as the energy shield. The man stepped on Chu Yunsheng's body very hard, it almost made Chu Yunsheng spat out blood again!

  
The flame bird flew over everyone's head, stepped on the first person’s back and pressed that person down very hard. The person instantly lost conscious, then the body was burned and the energy was absorbed by the flame bird.


Meanwhile, another three people just ran past Chu Yunsheng, one of them lost their balance when jumped over Chu Yunsheng stepped on his body by accident. Then the fifth person stepped on his hand, Chu Yunsheng couldn't bear the pain but slightly shook his hand.

The person who stepped his hand was scared to death seeing a dead man suddenly moved.

But then that person immediately noticed what's happening. He threw himself on the ground and played dead just like Chu Yunsheng.

And the other person who was the slowest among them, and who was also supposed to be dead but luckily the flame monster had decided to fly over them to catch the person at the front. When that person saw two people were playing dead on the ground the last person immediately followed them!


Chu Yunsheng really wanted to kill those two idiots and dumped them in a place far away from him. Can they not choose somewhere else to play dead. There was roughly 4 meters distance from each other. If the flame monster noticed any one of them, they would all be dead. Since Chu Yunsheng got ambushed by the red-shelled insect before, he never once doubted any monster's intelligence!

As he expected, the flame bird killed four people at the front, but it didn't leave, it was still wheeling in the sky and looking for few people that are missing.

Chu Yunsheng was watching the flame bird secretly. when he saw the monster eventually locked on them, he knew it was game over!

The monster flapped its wing and started to dive down. Chu Yunsheng had no other choice but kept playing dead.  He knew he couldn't run away, he just hoped other people couldn't bear the heat would get up and run away. Maybe the monster would chase the person, or maybe it would just kill two more people and leave.

All three people were having the same thought, but probably only one person would have a chance to survive!

It was a time to test their courage, Chu Yunsheng still had his broken armour, so he decided whatever happened he would have to stay to the end!
 
As he expected, the other two people did not have anything to protect them. One person seemed to hold it very well, but the other one could not bear the heat immediately got up and run away.

However, how could he run away from the flame bird’s chase? Soon he was burned into ashes.

  
Now it was only left him and the other person. the Flame bird flew back and once again dived down, Chu Yunsheng knew he couldn’t get away now, this monster definitely knew what was going on!


In that moment, Chu Yunsheng gave up all the hope, he knew his life would end here. His mind just went blank and then all the old memories flashed backed, he remembered his parents which had passed away a long time ago … he sighed. it was time to see them in the heaven.


Suddenly he heard a familiar loud screech, it sounded like red shelled insect, no…. Should be green shelled insect!!

Chu Yunsheng squinted his eye to take a close look. The flame bird had already given up flew towards them, it ascended to the sky! Flew towards three green shelled insects!

They were like the mortal enemies for many years, both sides ignored Chu Yunsheng and the other person, headed straight to each other and crashed into each other,


Although the flame bird was very strong. but there were three green-shelled insects. So it was hard to tell who was going to win at that moment!

Chu Yunsheng immediately came back from the shock, he did not expect he could survive this time! And What was more surprising was the things that saved him was not the ancient book. But it was his enemy green shelled insect!


Then another thought instantly emerged in his mind, if the green shelled insects were here, that means the red-shelled insect’s main force was very close too.


He did not know where he got the strength, but he instantly jumped up and tried to pick up the bike which he kicked over earlier. It was the only way he could get away from here quickly.

But the truth was you could never depend on luck, the bike still wouldn’t start. Chu Yunsheng was so frustrated that he even wanted to use the sword to cut the bike in half.


“Let me try it!” a voice came from his back, it was the person who was playing dead with him. From the voice and the body shape, Chu Yunsheng could tell she was a woman.


Since the dark age began, no one would have time to clean themselves, including those women, everyone had a messy hair and their faces were usually covered with dirt. If she did not talk and Chu Yunsheng did not look carefully, he would not recognise she was a woman.  Of course, there were some other reasons for women to make themselves look ugly as well, just like the female teacher he saw in Shen Cheng city.


Chu Yunsheng did not know anything about the motorbike, so he stood aside to let the woman try it, but his hand was tightly grasped the bike's back seat. He needed to make sure this woman was not going to run away with the bike.


The battle over their head was getting more and more fierce. One of the green shelled insects had already been killed by the flame bird and fell on the ground. the flame bird was also heavily injured, its fireball attack was getting weaker and weaker.


Time was pressing!
