Chapter 87 humans are still resisting

Chapter 87 humans are still resisting
Eventually, he still left the place. He picked up the walking stick and Qian Bi sword, took the stuffed toy and carried on stumbling on the highway towards Jin ling city.

Even if Jin Ling city had fallen, he still needed to see the debris. If humans had really fallen, there was no point for him to be alive.

Also, his aunt was still there, even she was really dead, he wanted to see her body.

With the help of the walking stick, Chu Yunsheng stumbled alone on the highway that covered with bodies. He already stopped reciting the incantations,  he was simply walking on the highway like a robot with the mind was completely blank.

He didn't understand why people would easily give up their life to commit a suicide before, but now he knew.

His watch was already broken, he didn't know how long he had walked. But the sky still had a hazy light that meant the day was still not over yet.

The Numbers of bodies started to reduce. so The space on the road became wider.


However, he wasn't careful enough when he walking down the highway. he slipped over on a puddle of blood and tumbled down and road. His head hit a dead tree and instantly started to bleed. But he didn't faint this time. because he heard the insect's screech. The nervous feeling instantly woke him up.

He immediately stood up and gazed afar. Finally, he saw a live human being!!

The person was being attacked by three red shell insects. uh ? no, Chu Yunsheng wiped off the blood in his eye, looked one more time, it was two! And another one was a tiger!

Strangely, the tiger was helping the man to fight red shelled insect!

Since the dark age began, apart from some small domestic pets, Chu Yunsheng had never seen a large animal. This was the first time he saw the “king of animal”(1.) fighting in the wild in person.

The Tiger was surrounded by the golden light and it was constantly roaring at the red-shelled insect, every time it roared, it seemed to fire a projectile breath from its mouth.

The man who was fighting together with it was a fire element warrior. he was using his bare hands to fight the red-shelled insects.

Three other red shelled insects had already died next to them.

When Chu Yunsheng noticed them, he was still very far from them. Only until when he took out the bow and arrow, did he noticed that the man and the tiger were heavily injured, they were bleeding a lot.

He hated insect. it was them destroyed his world; his hopes and everything else exists in this world. The vicious desire of killing those monsters instantly surged up within him.

----Kill! ----------KIll! -------------Kill!-----


Chu Yunsheng did not have much Yuan Qi left, but he still started to infuse Yuan Qi and aimed at one red shelled insect. he shouted:"die!"

The frost arrow instantly shot out and froze the red-shelled insect be before his voice had faded out.

Then the fire warrior threw a punch to smash the frozen insect into pieces.

At the same time, the other insect went mad instantly. it ignored the tiger’s breath attack even its claw was broken when hit by the breath. It charged towards the fire warrior and used its sharp leg to stab the back of his head.

Fire warrior's defence was very weak, if he was hit, he would definitely die.

The Insect's speed was very fast, even Chu Yunsheng shouted to remind the man, but it was still too late. when Chu Yunsheng thought he was dead for sure, what he saw next,  he probably would never forget in his life. The tiger roared and jumped towards the man, it used its body to block the deadly attack.

The tiger's neck was pierced through by red shelled insect’s sharp leg. The golden light that surrounded it instantly became brighter.Despite the blood constantly bursting out from its neck, it bit off the insect’s sharp leg and then tightly bit on insect’s head.

The fire warrior was shocked, he instantly threw the fire fists and constantly smashing the insect red shell’s body until the insect’s shell was broken and its sticky blood came out.

The Insect died.

Tiger also died.

The Fire Warrior was a 40 years old man. he was tightly hugging the tiger and wept aloud.

Chu Yunsheng stood aside silently and watching him cry.

After a while, the fire warrior slowly stopped his tear. He tried to stand up, but he instantly collapsed onto the ground. Only now did Chu Yunsheng noticed that there was a hole in this right chest.

He helped the man to sit up.

The man gave him a wry smile:"brother, I don't know who you are, but thank you."

Chu Yunsheng shook his head, he wanted to kill the insect because he hated the insects.

The fire warrior coughed few times, and sat next to the dead tiger, he slowly stroked the tiger’s fur and sighed:”my wife and daughter had died, now Hu Zai(tiger’s name) also died, there is nothing left for me in this world now!”


He then took out two boxes and passed it to Chu Yunsheng:"brother, cough… cough…  I know I will not make it, I am sorry to ask you for another favour. I used to be a zookeeper in Gu Su Zoo, cough …. cough ” he used his hands to draw a small circle in the air and said:”I raised Hu Zai when it was this big, it has been 10 years now…. cough … cough..”

Then he pointed one big box said:” this is its kid, it had it since before the dark age began, but I don’t know why… cough… cough, it’s been half years now, it just gave birth….. Few days ago…. Cough … cough…. Three of them… only one is alive now…..”


He then raised his head and begged Chu Yunsheng:”please, bring it to Jin Ling city and give it to the government…. If you want, you can raise it as well... cough …. Cough.. But ...Please, no matter how hungry you are…..please do not eat it… ok? It is not an ordinary baby…. It has a special ability like its mom…  it will be very strong and useful!  Cough.. cough...”

Chu Yunsheng took out the box and told him not to worry. He nodded his head:”you need to stay calm, I won't eat it, I promise! ”
  
He looked into Chu Yunsheng’s eyes:”Thank you. I believe you because you helped us, I believe you… take care of …... ” the man died before Chu Yunsheng even got a chance to say anything!

Chu Yunsheng opened the box, the little tiger baby was still asleep as if what happened earlier had nothing to do with it.

He picked it up from the box, the tiger baby was startled and yawned, its little paws were moving in the air but then went back to sleep again.

A new life, a life that from earth, a life that represented that no matter what happened to the earth, but the life itself would continue to survive and to prosper in this dark blood age!

Looking at its tiny body, Chu Yunsheng sensed something, his dying heart started to jumped again as if a new plant’s bud started to grow on its dead heart:"life will never stop, life will carry on!”

As long as new life continued to grow on earth. one day. humanity would expel the insects from home and rebuild human civilization.

There was still a hope, and only staying alive would keep the hope exist!

He then put the tiny tiger back into the box and picked up another smaller box. on the cover of the box, it wrote:”beloved wife and daughter”. Chu Yunsheng sighed:”I'll bury you together with the tiger as well, I hope you all would be reunited in the heaven!”

..........................

After he buried the man’s whole family, Chu Yunsheng took the box that had a tiny tiger in it and started his journey again.

Feeding little one became a problem for him for awhile, because he did not know how to raise a tiger. fortunately, the man kept a notebook in the box. It was more like an Observation notes. Chu Yunsheng suspected that because of the strange ability the Mom Tiger had, so the man wanted to note down as many details about the little tiger as possible.


The little tiger was growing very fast, it was definitely not normal compared to the tiger during the age of light. According to the note, the mom tiger could eat red shelled insect’s meat. so the man suspected. After one month, the baby tiger would be able to eat red shelled insect’s meat as well.
 
It just happened to solve the thing that Chu Yunsheng was worried the most, which was would there be enough food for the little one.

Since its food was the red-shelled insect’s meat, and Chu Yunsheng also happened to have piles of them inside storage talisman, so It could eat as many as it like.

The little one made him feel the world wasn’t lifeless anymore.

Soon after he was back on the road, he encountered red shelled insects several times. he suspected that he was near the red-shelled insect's crowded area. He was afraid that if he continued moving he might encounter more red-shelled insects. So he found a hidden place to restore his Yuan Qi for three days.

At the same time, his leg also recovered from injury. at least he didn't need to use the walking stick anymore.

Before he was back on the road again, he made an energy shield for the little tiger and cast onto its head. The little one’s growth rate was beyond zookeeper's expectation. It had already opened its eyes, its favourites activity was to play with Chu Yunsheng’s hands.


What surprised Chu Yunsheng even more was not only it had the metal element which is the strongest defence element, it also had strange wind element which could control the wind. This the first time he saw such element exist.
