Dark Blood AgeChapter 15

After having his Yuan Qi slightly restored, Chu Yunsheng took out the red-shelled insects’ bodies and used the absorption talisman to absorb Yuan Qi from all four bodies.
At the moment, there were five flame patterns on the absorption talisman. Chu Yunsheng didn’t want to wait until he killed another red-shelled insect to completely fill up the absorption talisman. As, in the dark Shen Cheng city, dangers could occur everywhere in any minute. f𝗿𝙚e𝙬𝗲𝑏𝒏𝑜ѵ𝑒𝗹. 𝒄𝑜𝘮
He immediately decided to use the absorption talisman without any hesitation. After he transferred Yuan Qi into his body, he discovered that the concentration of Yuan Qi inside his body increased a lot. With the volume he had right now, he could freeze seven red-shelled insects, and if he counted the Yuan Qi consumption of freezing one red-shelled insect as one unit, his Yuan Qi concentration would have one unit left at the end!
Also, the number of the flame patterns that disappeared from the absorption talisman wasn’t just three, it was three and a half!
Before, when he fully restored his Yuan Qi, it would only consume three flame patterns. But now, based on what he discovered, it clearly meant that his Yuan Qi concentration had been increased!
Chu Yunsheng clearly remembered that when he first-time cultivated Yuan Qi fully, he roughly had around five to six units of Yuan Qi. Since then, he had already done roughly eight or nine times of Yuan Qi cultivation cycles. So it was most likely that when he completed another nine cycles of Yuan QI cultivation, his body would be able to store one more unit of Yuan Qi!
There were eighty-one cycles in total, which meant that he would be able to have his Yuan Qi volume increased by nine units. In other words, when he reached the peak state of Yuan Tian stage one, he could freeze fifteen red-shelled insects!
When he broke through Yuan Tian stage one’s barrier and learned the close combat skill sets, he would be able to get away from the attacks of large numbers of red-shelled insects easily!
Thinking of this, Chu Yunsheng smiled with confidence!
After the Yuan Qi was restored, he made another absorption talisman, which consumed him six units of Yuan Qi. And as expected, he still had one unit of Yuan Qi remaining inside his body.
This kind of feeling was so great!
As the used absorption talisman couldn’t absorb Yuan Qi anymore, he transferred the Yuan Qi from the remaining half flame pattern into his body. He now had four units of Yuan Qi.
Originally he wanted to keep the used absorption talisman for emergency use. But then again, when he thought of the dangerous environment he was in at this moment, he abandoned the idea of staying in his room and continuing practicing for a long time.
The old energy shield talisman couldn’t be used anymore; It consumed him two units of Yuan Qi to make a new one. The talisman on the crossbow and the pistol still had half of Yuan Qi remaining, so they could be used for some time.
After he finished everything, his Yuan Qi went back to two units again. He would need to spend almost seven days to fully restore the Yuan Qi again.
During the time when Chu Yunsheng was recovering himself in the room, the food Zhang Han took back was already finished by those five people, so Chu Yunsheng also gave them some biscuits and drinks he took from the market.
But what surprised him was that the bruises Zhang Han had on his face were not caused by snatching food from other people, it was caused by fighting other people over a pack of sanitary towels! It was because that Feifei girl was on her period!
‘This guy really is a love fool!’ Chu Yunsheng sighed.
Having analyzed the fight, Chu Yunsheng realized that he was lacking in close combat skill. But he couldn’t do anything about it at the moment. If he was as talented as those self-awakened humans, he would have a close combat skill set once he was awakened.
But for now, he had to wait until he reached Yuan Tian stage two. According to the ancient book, if he learned powerful sword fighting techniques, he would become unstoppable.
He was also concerned about the energy shield talisman’s defence shield. Although it could easily stop the attack of one insect, if more than two insects attacked him at the same time, the energy shield’s defence would be weakened. Unless he could make a level two energy shield talisman.
However, the description of the level-two energy shield talisman, he only understood less than half of it. Even if he wanted to use six units of his Yuan Qi to make it, he still wouldn’t know how to make it.
‘What should I do now?’
He looked at the perfectly aligned six insects’ bodies and thought. All of them were killed by himself. He killed the first one at his flat, the second one was killed when he met Zhang Han, and the rest of them were killed in the last fight.
Suddenly, he had an idea! The armors of red-shelled insects were rock-hard, so why not use it as raw material to make a set of armor?
In the ancient book, there was one type of talisman named Zhan Jia (TL: combat armor) talisman. It was a level-two talisman, and it required practitioners to draw a complete armor diagram on it. After that was done, the Zhan Jia (TL: combat armor) talisman would automatically absorb all the material it needed.
Even though Chu Yunsheng already knew how to make this talisman in the past. He did not have any materials or even heard of the materials that were mentioned in the ancient book, so he completely forgot about it.
But now seeing the shells of those insects, it reminded him of one of the materials that was mentioned in the book. It was animals’ bones or shells.
Now that he had the bodies of red-shelled insects, he could try to make a set of combat armor!
The combat armor required a lot of raw materials, and in the process of refining, mere six bodies were definitely not enough. If he waited until his Yuan Qi increased another two units to make a combat armor talisman, not only would he be able to store more bodies of the insects, but he also would be able to prepare enough absorption talismans as backups.
During the process of making combat armor, those backups would be used to restore his Yuan Qi to compensate for his Yuan Qi losses.
Two units of Yuan Qi required eighteen cycles, so he needed to kill at least fifty four red-shelled insects! Although the number was quite big, Chu Yunsheng was confident, as long as he did not encounter the same situation as the last fight.
Since the shell was useful, Chu Yunsheng immediately thought that other parts of the insect’s body might also be useful in some way.
For example, the very sharp legs of the red-shelled insect could be used to make an arrow’s head. It could make his crossbow even more powerful.
The corrosive secretions inside the insect’s body could be collected using the insect’s internal organs. In the future, he could use talismans to refine it, making it an even more corrosive venom.
As he was thinking, he quickly dismembered the red-shelled insects’ bodies. With the help of the new energy shield talisman, he didn’t need to worry about the toxic and corrosive secretions.
The shell of the insects could be used to make armor. Claws and legs could be used to make arrows. Secretions could be used to make poisonous venom. All it left was just some meat which didn’t seem to have any value. But Chu Yunsheng still felt that the insects’ muscles were very powerful, and they might be useful in the future in some way, so he stored them inside the storage talisman as well.
Of course, Chu Yunsheng would never ever dare to eat that meat, who knows what would happen if he ate the meat?
After he finished separating the bodies, he seemed to have found new objectives. If he wanted to survive this horror city, he must become more powerful.
God did not give him the talent of a self-awakened human, but his ancestors left him an old ancient book. With the help of this ancient book, his ability might not be worse than those self-awakened people!
If reaching Yuan Tian stage two was his intermediate goal, then the long, boring and difficult cultivation practice, and the possibility of making a set of combat armor were his short-term objectives. He really needed to speed up,
Standing on a building roof, Chu Yunsheng looked at the boundless dark sky.
Three days ago he killed the two insects on the west side of the bridge, and sent the love fool Zhang Han and other people to the army base on the opposite side of the bridge. As for the possibility that they could get protection from the army or not, that was no longer his problem.
Food has become a new crisis in this horror city. Unable to endure the hunger, many people started to appear on the streets frequently. Sometimes people were fighting each other just for the right to search the supermarkets like “Hao De convenience store”. Its cruelty was not much less than being killed by red-shelled insects.
There was a fight across the street right below where Chu Yunsheng was standing right now. One side had a police pistol, the other side had nothing but they had more people.
The fight was very violent, and it was just for a rice shop. Chu Yunsheng even saw an old man, who was equipped with at least three steel knives, guarding the door.
When the side that didn’t have pistols but a lot of more people just broke through the door, a giant red-shelled insect appeared on the street.
No one at this point hesitated, no one stopped, everyone chose to run away at that moment. They just had one pistol, if they chose to fight back, the result was definitely death!
But how could the human’s running speed compete with that of a red-shelled insect!?
The red-shelled insect quickly jumped into the crowd. In its eyes, those cowardly humans were just a bunch of prey. But it did not know that there was always a bigger fish.
Soon, a grey shadow fell from the sky, accompanied by the freezing cold Yuan Qi from a frost arrow!
