Chapter 171 into the giant tomb

Chapter 171 into the giant tomb
“are you sure that what you saw was a red-purple flame monster?” Chu Yunsheng asked a young man whose name was Zhang Huan, who was also a rank 1 dark warrior.

“Yes, Captain Chu, I was responsible for the watch out at that time. I saw it through the binoculars. It was that thing killed my brother. I'll never forget it!” Zhang Huan gritted his teeth and said.

"how many did you see? Chu Yunsheng asked again. if it was more than two he would drop his plan immediately. Although sealing this type of monster was very attempting to him, he still didn't want to risk his life.

“we only saw one, but I don't know if there is more” Zhang Huan thought for a second and said.

"thank you for your information, you may rest now." Chu Yunsheng nodded his head.

“Yao Xiang, go back to the office building to tell Ding Yan, I'm going to check that purple flame monster, if there is anything urgent, tell the people to fire the flare towards the other side of the river.”

Based on the limited information, he suspected that there was probably only one red-purple flame monster on the other side of the river. This was a great opportunity for him, he probably wouldn't have any more opportunities like this in the future. So he decided to take a risk. If there was any danger, he had enough ice element talisman to help him to run away.

The reason why he needed the monster so badly was mainly because of the two aliens. A red-purple flame monster was almost as powerful as him, so he could use it to fight those two aliens in the future.

Although Chu Yunsheng joined the woman in the white dress at the moment, he still did not trust her.

At the moment, Ding Yan had already alerted the ice and fire combat team which was led Yao Xiang and Lu Yu. He asked them to be always on the high alert to watch out the cloaked man.

“ok brother Chu, be careful!” said Yao Xiang.

Chu Yunsheng nodded his head. Compared to the last time he crossed the river, he had fewer pressure and concerns this time!

If there was any danger, he believed that with his speed, he would still able to get away.

After Yao Xiang left, Chu Yunsheng immediately started to make monster seal talisman. He was going to make two of them not just one of them.

If he wanted to successfully find the red-purple flame monster. With the little tiger’s “detection” ability was not enough. Without the golden shell, he could not get into the swarm.

He borrowed a small boat from the military and quietly rowed the boat across the river. Since the stone stele flew away, the surface of the river became very quiet, the black fog had also disappeared. That water monster which looked like an upside down shuttlecock had also disappeared from the river never showed up once.

Since the tomb was destroyed, the sticky substances which were all over the ground had also moved back. Many bodies of the monsters were also slowly moved back to Jin Ling city one after another by the military, it only left different sizes of craters on the frontline and some big tombs remains which the military could not take it away.

Chu Yunsheng activated his armour immediately after he crossed the river. He carefully looked for the tracks that Zhang Huan mentioned, and lurked towards the swarm with the little tiger. Sometimes they noticed one or two green shells flying over their head, they quickly hide into the carters and covered themselves with the burnt soil until the green shells left.

This was a secretly hunting, and both he and the little tiger were experienced in it. Especially the little tiger, it was able to react to the different level of danger and that was how Chu Yunsheng going to find the red-purple flame monster.

One man and one tiger, hopped from one crater to another, slowly and steadily approaching the sticky substances. Soon they saw the crowded swarm appeared in their eyesight and it seemed like the insects in the swarm was busy doing something.

He was hiding in one of the craters that close to the sticky substances. he slowly moved his head up until his eyes reached the top of the crater which was on the same level of the ground. he was secretly searching for his target,

But the result was very disappointing, not a single golden shell, let alone the red-purple flame monster, apart from red shells and green shells, all the swarm had, were the worms and the countless bloody meatballs as big as an adult human. 

Chu Yunsheng was constantly changing the craters around the edge of the sticky substance, he was hoping that he could find a golden shell at the other places.

It took him almost half hour, but he still did not find anything. Eventually, he gave up. Probably the golden shell liked to live under the ground. Unless there was some special circumstance they wouldn’t come out of the ground. He thought.

When he was thinking to go back to the city, suddenly a tomb’s tube emerged from the ground in the centre of the crater he was hiding. it wriggled for a second but there was nothing came out of the tube.

This was the type of tube that presumably connected the centre of the tombs. When Chu Yunsheng bombed the other tombs, he had controlled the red shells to crawl into these tubes before.

He knitted his brows and suddenly had an insane idea, he wanted to get into the tube!

This was the only way to get into the swarm without being noticed by the insect, but it was also very risky. However, there wasn’t much time for him to think it through carefully. If he could not make a decision straight away, once the tube started to generate the sticky liquid, he would lose his chance.

Chu Yunsheng looked at the little tiger on the side then gritted his teeth.

“Do it!” he quickly made up his mind. He really wanted to get a red-purple flame monster. If he had it, he would have the ability to defeat the two aliens, he could even suppress the swarm’s attack for a while.

He and little tiger slowly approached the centre of the crater and looked inside to see if there was anything.

He used the tip of the submachine to poke the outside of the red tube for a few seconds to see if there was any reaction from it.

Although he had controlled the red shell to crawl into the tube before, he didn't know if the tube had some kind of detection mechanism or not. he still remembered that the tentacles monster he fought back in the horror city had eyeballs on its tube, so he needed to be careful.

No reactions, he poked a few times more than nervously looked at the insects in the swarm, also no reaction.

Until he was sure that they wouldn't react to anything crawled into the tube, Chu Yunsheng got into the tube with the tiger.

The tube was big, Chu Yunsheng could even stand up straight inside. But its stinky smell was even worse than the sewer. The internal surface of the tune was very sticky, whenever he lifts his feet, he would bring up a very long sticky liquid.

The only thing good about this was, if the tube was curved up, the sticky liquid would help him to stand still.

Chu Yunsheng was using a dim glowing stick to see inside the tube. He was worried that the internal of the tube would have a reaction to the strong bright light, it might also alert other insects as well.

He just needed some dim light to see what's in front of him, so the glowing stick was more than enough.

He was so anxious inside the tunnel, he even heard the insects were crawling in the tunnels above him sometimes.

He went deeper and deeper into the tunnel until he reached the end, then, he saw an open space, he didn't know if they arrived at the central of tombs or not.

But there were many tubes filled with some kind of liquid hanging above their head. There were also some sticky meatballs here, however, unlike the meatballs he saw outside the tombs, they were hanging above the ground by those tubes. There were also two smaller tubes connected to those meatballs. It seemed like they were being constantly injected with some liquid.

Suddenly a sticky meatball near Chu Yunsheng started to move. Then the meatballs began to shrink, smaller and smaller until its surface tightly wrapped around the object inside. Based on its tightly wrapped outline Chu Yunsheng felt something.

“co...co…co…”

A moment later,  with the help from the glowing tubes inside the tomb. He saw a golden shell's head that its size was as big as a bus broke out of the “deflated” meatballs!
