“Brother!” the group of people was horrified while looking at the bald man, who was now an ice sculpture
“Do you want to see what the real flame looks like?” Chu Yunsheng said with a smirk on his face. He would not let those idiots, who pointed a gun at him, off easily.
To stop a single point of attack, the Yuan Qi inside his body would converge towards a single point. Chu YunSheng’s Yuan Qi was fully restored at the moment, so Simei’s flaming bullet would not do any damage to him.
He put the crossbow back on his shoulder, and then drew the pistol slowly, and pointed at Simei, who was still in shock. Please visit 𝘧𝗿𝚎e𝓌𝗲𝒃𝑛𝒐ѵ𝗲𝒍. c𝐨𝗺
“Simei RUN!” shouted the man, who was wearing a mask. He quickly grabbed Simei’s hand and started to run towards the door!
“Why are you running away now? Can you even run faster than a bullet!” Chu Yunsheng mocked.
Two shots in a row. The bullets that contained fire elemental energy brought flames and flew towards the woman and directly hit her back!
“Ah!...” As a painful scream rang out in the kitchen, Simei’s whole body was surrounded by fire. She used all her energy trying to stop the fire, but the fire seemed to be unstoppable. It was still burning across her body.
The bullets Chu Yunsheng shot this time were not like the other bullets he had shot before. This time, the bullets were filled with Yuan Qi. Each of the bullets almost consumed him one unit of Yuan Qi!
With one unit of Yuan Qi, he could fire a Frost Arrow to freeze a powerful red-shelled insect. With two units of Yuan Qi, he could strike the monster into pieces.
Those two bullets consumed him two units of Yuan Qi in total. It was not something that Simei this type of people could block. She had just awakened her power, and her ability was still very weak. Even though she had awakened fire elemental ability, she still could not block this level of attack!
The fire had already spread across her body. Her energy was already exhausted. The constant ear-piercing screams terrorized the people in the kitchen. The whole kitchen was soon filled with the burnt smell of human flesh!
Chu Yunsheng was shocked. He did not expect it could be this horrifying. He never had this kind of feeling when he killed the insects. But when he faced humans, even though he was ready to kill his enemies, such death still frightened him!
However, Chu Yunsheng did not have the slightest regret! Maybe this was what the end of the world looked like. If he had not had any power, the one that would be burned to death would’ve probably been him!
It was that woman, who fired the first shot, and she was not even hesitant when she did it!
‘This was her retribution!’ Chu Yunsheng thought. If he was the one lying on the ground, probably that group of people would not feel sorry for him at all, because they wanted him dead from the beginning.
If they did not take other people’s lives seriously, then they did not deserve any of his sympathies. Her punishment was burned to death, and that was what she deserved!
The fire had spread to the masked man’s arm. While Chu Yunsheng was still in shock, the masked man immediately raised his knife and cut off his own arm. He then ran away through the door while enduring the pain, leaving his partners behind.
When facing the enemy that was even more dangerous and more powerful than a red-shelled insect, escape was the best choice. It was like a flock of birds that was scared away by beasts, now, there was none left!
Chu Yunsheng did not want to chase them. He was not a bloodthirsty demon, and he had already killed two of them. The most important thing was that the fight had consumed him three units of Yuan Qi already.
In this horror city, he might encounter many unpredictable dangers at any time, so reserving some of his strength was absolutely necessary.
After putting back the pistol, Chu Yunsheng noticed that, the group of students and the young woman were staring at him on the other side.
The woman dressed in a suit, so he suspected that she was their teacher. However, he did not really have time to care about others because the city was full of homeless and starving people at the moment.
Looking at the burned Simei’s body, Chu Yunsheng lost the appetite to eat. But he did not want to waste the pot of beef soup either.
Everyone knew what the most expensive thing in the dark age was. It was food!
He found a set of tableware in the kitchen, and ready to pack the rest of the food and stored them in the storage talisman so he did not need to worry about food spoilage.
“Hello! Sir,” said the teacher. She could not help but walk forward when she saw Chu Yunsheng was ready to pack the food and leave.
Originally, she and her students just wanted to try their luck at finding food at this restaurant. But when they just entered the hall of this restaurant earlier, they immediately smelled the aroma of food that they had not smelled for a very long time. One of the students, who had a really strong smell sense, guessed that it was definitely the smell of beef, so she did not hesitate to come in.
However, she didn’t expect that a group of atrocious thugs would appear and also follow them into the restaurant shortly after they entered the restaurant.
She recognized the bald man. He was a notorious thug, who gathered a bunch of men and women to help him exploit the people in this area. There were no laws and orders in the dark age, so those thugs had no fears when they committed all sorts of crimes.
When she was a child, she used to listen to her grandmother talking about the story about the Japanese invasion. During that time girls would deliberately put wood ashes on their faces to make themselves look as ugly as possible in order to prevent any harm caused by their look. But she did not expect that now she and her students would have to do the same as what her grandmother had done in the past.
Originally she thought that the young would be dead. Because she had never seen anyone survive in the hands of the bald man.
There used to be a girl, who tried to resist the bald man when he tried to rape her. Later on that day, the girl’s whole family was nailed on to the entrance of her housing estate. Even until now, she still felt like it was a nightmare.
But the result today was totally unexpected. The young man single-handedly killed the two most powerful thugs in that atrocious gang.
She was shocked at first. After she realized what happened, she didn’t know how to describe her feelings.
She knew that there were people with special abilities, and her students had often asked her why. But she could not explain. She was from this neighborhood, but she had never heard of the existence of this man.
‘Where did he come from?’ She thought.
Of course, the answers to these questions were not important at the moment. The most important thing was that the man was leaving, and he was going to take the half pot beef away.
She and her students have not eaten for two days. So she had to be thick-skinned to ask for the food. Even if it was just a little bit of food.
Xiaoxue has been suffering from a high fever for three days now. If they could not get any food, she was worried that her favorite student probably would not be able to hold on much longer.
Chu Yunsheng did not know what kind of thought went through their minds. But with the experiences he had in the past, he could tell that it was not something good.
Normally, in this kind of situation, the only thing would make a person talk was mostly food.
And his strategy usually was, if they did not speak it out, he would not mention it as well. He was not a philanthropist. Food was precious, especially in the dark age! But if they talked, then it would also depend on the situation.
Like what happened now. When a dozen kids were looking at him and his pot of beef with a dozen pairs of piteous eyes. His hands inexplicably stopped. After all, he was still a soft-hearted guy.
“This pot of beef, you can have it!” he sighed.
Chu Yunsheng put the whole pot in front of them, took back the camping stove, and quickly returned to his original place.
He did not want to talk to them. He was afraid that his soft-hearted nature would make him do something even more stupid.
Lighting up a cigarette, he sat on the sofa in the hall, and thought about what happened earlier. It forced him to recognise that he was in the dark age.
The rules in this world have changed. There were no more countries, no more moral standards, it was completely ruled by power.
If you were relentless and powerful, then you would be able to oppress others, do anything, or even harvest other’s lives. No one would arrest you; no court would give you any sentences. Everything was in the boundless disorder of chaos.
It was time to change his mind. Just like what happened earlier. If it were not for his energy shield, he would have probably been on the way to hell now.
Only those who had absolute power would be able to make rules in the dark age! Chu Yunsheng flicked cigarette butt and thought.
He had to work harder, and spent more time on his cultivation practice. Only until when his cultivation level was strong enough would he be able to protect himself from being ruled by others.
