Chapter 94 unknown monsters

Chapter 94 unknown monsters
Chu Yunsheng didn't care about what witch was doing. It was not his business either. Moreover, people were willing to believe, and the witch was happy to preach. So he couldn't do anything about it.

After Lao Chui’s group had the food, they became so energetic, there were even smiles on everyone’s face, and they also got the broken car fixed very soon. Human’s potentials were truly limitless. Desperation, hope could be changed just within a split second it was just like a magic.

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

In the silent night, the wind seemed to have stopped.


Chu Yunsheng had been practise his cultivation method for quite a while now. Yuan Tian stage two had 5 sub stages, he needed to complete those five sub-stages in order to fully transform his body. But now he just barely completed the first sub-stage. He didn't know how powerful he would be when he reached the second sub-stage. All he knew was more sub-stages he completed more powerful he would be.

In fact, not only just he knew this, the other awakening warriors also knew this as well. Apart from the “witch” who was mainly focusing on preaching, rest of five people were trying all kinds of method to increase their strength. This was their only way of surviving. God had given them the abilities, now it was down to themselves to find a way to increase the power of their individual ability.


All five people had different kinds of thoughts. since Chu Yunsheng solved the food crisis, Huang Renkuan once again changed his position to support Zhao Shanhe. Even the “witch” and Tian Weidai all turned their back on Li Yue, The chef was always quiet, so All of the sudden Li Yue was on his own.


Meanwhile, seeing Chu Yunsheng was still awake, Tian Weidai secretly approached Chu Yunsheng. He took out a crumpled cigarette box from deep inside his coat and borrowed the fire from Chu Yunsheng. He then took a deep drag. after that, he passed it to Chu Yunsheng. Chu Yunsheng shook his head, he didn't take it.


“brother Chu, do you think there is an afterlife?” said Tian Weidai.


“Maybe,” said Chu Yunsheng. Everyone would ask themselves this question some point in their lifetime. Chu Yunsheng had also thought about it before, but in the end, he still could not find the answer.

“my presents died when I was a kid, I became a soldier when I was 18,  our platoon leader was always looking after me, he treated me like his own brother.” said Tian Weidai, there was a gleam of light flashed in his empty eyes, but it quickly disappeared. He was dispirited:”when I was still defending Shen Cheng city, half the of the soldiers in our company had already died. but the headquarter still told us they had not yet evacuated the entire city, they wanted us to hold the defence line at all cost!

In Those days, not a single day without soldiers dying. I was a coward, I got scared. I tried to run away when the troops were in disarray. But I still got caught by the disciplinary patrol. The day after I was caught, all the deserters were asked to stand in a row in front of the whole regiment and wait for regiment Commander to execute us in person. It was the company commander who saved them. When he begged regiment commander to give the deserters another chance, the regiment commander was pointing the gun at his head. Only when he used his own life to guarantee that those deserters would redeem themselves by fighting the insects did the regiment commander let it go.”

Tian Weidai was like talking to himself, he did not check if Chu Yunsheng was still listening or not.

“That day, we were sent to the front line to fight the insect in order to redeem ourselves. Everyone lost their mind and clashed with the swarm. In the end, the swarm retreated, and I lived.

It was that night, I awakened, but it was too late to report my detail to the headquarter. Squad leader jokingly said that I was a lucky bastard, the whole company, just me awakened. He also said even though I had awakened, but I still needed to fight like a man, die with the comrades. Never ever retreat, even just one step!

The second day, swarm came back with more number, and even more strong push from both sky and ground. They were not scared of artillery fire at all. Our brothers died one after another.  in the end, We still couldn't hold the defence line. Squad leader and rest of our brothers tied the bombs to themselves, died with the insects…. I was supposed to die with them,  but I got scared again. I threw away the bomb… and hid underneath comrade's bodies….we said that we are going to be brothers in the next life…. We said….”


Tian Weidai’s voice became lower and lower until Chu Yunsheng couldn't hear it at all. Tian Weidai looked dull, he didn't have any reaction even the cigarette burnt his fingers.

When he talked about the soldiers who blew up themselves with the insect. Chu Yunsheng remembered the soldiers he saw at the village. how much courage do you need, in order to make that kind of decision?

Chu Yunsheng gradually understood what was torturing the soldier. The soldier hoped that there was an afterlife, so he could meet his comrades who were treating him like a family member again. But he was also scared that there was an afterlife. He was scared that his comrades would despise him.

That was why he often shouted “I'm not a deserter!” during sleep!

In fact, the timid Tian Weidai didn't tell anyone including Zhao Shanhe he was a deserter. But every time he woke up shouting those words. It wasn't long until everyone figured out he was a deserter.

The Cars were bumping up and down and slowly drove towards Jin Ling city. Drivers had already been changed. The driver at first shift was already exhausted, it was time for them to take a short break.

Tian Weidai fall asleep after he vented all the stress. Only Hu Zai(little tiger) was awake, it twitched its ears from time to time seemed to listen to something. Chu Yunsheng was in a state of trance, he didn't know how long he was like this.

Suddenly he felt that Hu Zai which was in his arm suddenly stretched his body tightly, it was restless. Chu Yunsheng was startled and instantly woke up.

Normally if Hu Zai detected the danger and if it didn't know where the danger came from, it would act like this. The mysterious wind element plus the animal's instinct made Hu Zai’s detection ability become very accurate.

“Stop the car!” Chu Yunsheng suddenly shouted. His shout was like a thunder rang out in the car.

“Stop the car!” Chu Yunsheng nervously stood up, he didn't care about everyone was sleeping. He shouted once again.

The car instantly stopped, two buses which were closely following behind them also stopped. Everyone started to become anxious after they woke up.

“what's going on?” Huang Renkuan immediately asked.

“Shut the engine! turn off the lights!” Chu Yunsheng didn't answer him, instead, he bent over and quickly approached the driver urged him.

:” what's happening?” said Zhao Shanhe when he opened the car’s door from outside. he was on the watch on top of the car earlier.

Chu Yunsheng took out the gun, and started to check the bullets, he said quietly:”There are monsters nearby!”

“What monster?” said Huang Renkuan, he was very worried.

“I don't know!” through the glasses windows, Chu Yunsheng was staring at dark outside the car. Two buses behind them also shut the engine and turned off the lights.

“Which direction?” Li Yue immediately asked.


“I don't know!” Chu Yunsheng still gave them the same answer, because he did not really know where the danger came from, also he had yet to feel Yuan Qi’s irregular fluctuations in the area.

“Then, how do you know, there are monsters nearby?”

“Xiao Chu, you are not joking right?” said Zhao Shanhe and Huang Renkuan, they almost responded at the same time.

Chu Yunsheng ignored their questions and started to harness the Yuan Qi inside his body. he was on the extremely high alert state and he was preparing himself for the worst.

Everyone was affected by his tense behaviour, they lowered breathing noise, stopped talking, and stared at outside through the windows.

After a while, nothing happened.

If it wasn’t that he knew Hu Zai’s instinct was very accurate, Chu Yunsheng would definitely doubt it as well.

“Mr. Chu, don’t you think, you are a little bit exaggerated? ” Li Yue’s said with a weird tone. He was not happy about Chu Yunsheng helping Zhao Shanhe to solve the food problem. However, he also got a share, so at that time, he couldn't say anything about him.


“Yes, it was very scary.” Huang Renkuan nodded his head and relaxed his body. He then leant back in the seat.
  
“Look, what is that!” Tian Weidai suddenly shouted from the back of the car.


Chu Yunsheng’s speed was very fast, in a split second, he rushed to the back of the car. It was completely dark inside the car,  no one could see anything. But everyone was still shocked because they could still feel the sharp wind caused by Chu Yunsheng’s high-speed movement.

There were three green light dots slowly appeared in the dark at right rear side of the car. They were swaying roughly two meters above the ground, but no one knew what that was.

“There are also some here!” Huang Renkuan’s voice was trembling in the dark.

“Chief Huang and witch protect the rear side of the bus, everyone, get ready for the battle.  “ Zhao Shanhe immediately assigned the task to them.

At the same time,  more and more green fluorescent light dots started to appear in the dark,  some of them were high above the ground, some of them stayed very close to the ground, And Chu Yunsheng’s group was completed surrounded by them!


Chu Yunsheng was always relying on Hu Zai’s instinct to detect the danger before it approached him. He often had enough time to switch off the light and find somewhere to hide before the red-shelled insects arrived. He then usually just waited until the monsters left.

However, those green fluorescent light monsters seemed to have much stronger detection ability, they had already surrounded them.

At this time, hiding became useless.
