Chapter 41 The Breached Base
Just when Shao Qing took a crystal out, the lolita zombie suddenly pounced. Her speed was extremely quick. Shao Qing had no time to prepare at all and it had already appeared in front of her eyes.
However, Shao Qing’s movements were quick. With her leg, she kicked up the body in front of her causing it to smash into the lolita zombie’s body.
That body was smashed apart into pieces immediately, but it was able to stop the lolita for a split second allowing Shao Qing some time to react.
When the Lolita zombie came rushing at Shao Qing like an arrow, Shao Qing using her stomp for an extra boost, had already suddenly rushed over as well. Using her shoulder as the point, she collided into the Lolita zombie.
The Lolita zombie flew off as if she was smashed by a fire truck. She smashed into the tree, a clear distinct sound of bone breaking could be heard.
While Shao Qing had only retreated one step, her expression calm as she took a stride forward. Before the Lolita zombie could crawl up, she grasped her by the neck while her other hand formed a fist and furiously pounded at her.
When the first punch went down, the Lolita zombie’s head was suddenly thrown backwards, her neck snapping off with a crack. Although this was the case, it still attempted to try to bite at Shao Qing.
Expressionless, Shao Qing continued to press down on its neck. Even though her shoulder was being clawed by the Lolita causing it to form five bloody holes, she still didn’t let go. Taking the alive Lolita zombie, she smashed its brains into a meat pulp.
Collecting the crystal within the meat pulp, Shao Qing gave a sweep around the area. The few variation zombies that were originally beginning to stir started to quietly retreat.
She was only able to get rid of the Lolita zombie this easily because the only thing the Lolita zombie had evolved in was her speed, which was easier to deal with. However, if the other variation zombies all swarmed her, besides escaping she would only have one end result, death.
Putting away the crystal, Shao Qing went back again to collect some more crystals. Seeing that she had gathered most of the crystals around her, she headed back to the base. After returning, Shao Qing was very solemn as she spoke to the others. “I think something isn’t right. If something happens, remember to escape at once, don’t linger at all.”
“What’s going on?” Yan Hanqing’s voice was somewhat hoarse. His gaze fell on Shao Qing’s shoulders. A few bloody holes and fair skin could be vaguely seen from the area of clothing that was damaged.
“The number of variation zombies outside are a lot. Moreover the majority are quite aggressive. I observed them carefully and discovered that those zombies are quite disciplined, like… like a small organization. My instinct tells me that tonight’s end will not be as simple as we think it may be. Therefore… everyone must be careful.”
“What Qing Jiejie said is right. It doesn’t matter if something happens or not, we all need to prepare ourselves.” Gu Panpan nodded her head. She had already begun observing all over the place, trying to find a suitable escape route.
Shao Qing continued to speak. “In case something happens, we will immediately depart. Bringing Er Dai and the rest to leave.”
Gu Panpan nodded her head. But, before she could say anything, a loud blood-curdling screech suddenly broke the conversation. “What was that?” Gu Panpan at once activated her powers, heading towards where the sound was originating from.
They could see a patrol squad not far away thrown into complete disorder. A monkey like living creature had thrown down a person, causing flesh and blood to fly everywhere.
“Zombies! How did they enter?” Gu Panpan clenched the military knife within her grasp as she spoke in a nervous tone.
“It should be a special power.” Shao Qing had also taken out her military knife, vigilant as she looked outside the walls. Not outside of her expectations, a few enormous builds with a body covered with shaggy hair…. In brief it appeared to be a moldy looking ginormous zombie, rushing towards the first layer of wire netting and breaking through it.
Just like foam, the wire netting that had been obstructing numerous zombies was suddenly smashed into pieces. Afterwards the second measure of protection, then the third layer…
Not even a couple of seconds of work and the tall weird looking enormous zombie had rushed past the perimeter walls.
The perimeter walls that were specifically built to withstand the zombies collapsed at a single blow. At that moment, Shao Qing could keenly hear a sound that stood out from the masses howling. Afterwards the zombies that were aimlessly wandering around seemed like they heard some kind of command and immediately rushed over.
Not saying anything further, she brought her squad and started to retreat. She didn’t even attempt to prepare to resist. It was because Shao Qing clearly knew that it was over for this base.
While they were quietly retreating, the entire base had let out an alert signal. The superhumans who were originally sleeping lightly in addition to the miniscule fighting strength of ordinary people, all came rushing out with weapons.
However, once they came out they were all distracted by what they saw. In front of their eyes, their perimeter walls that was just like the Great Wall had suddenly developed several openings with zombies rushing through them.
They had all given up hope, especially the ordinary people. The superhumans in any case wouldn’t be infected; however for them, just being slightly scratched or even being bitten, was game over.
Shao Qing, Yan Hanqing and the rest had already rapidly returned back to their residence. Once returning they could smell the acute smell of blood. Shao Qing’s complexion at once changed colour. Kicking open the room door, she was able to see the Mediterranean man lying in front of the door.
Blood was seeping out from under him making a vast puddle and colouring the ground a dark red. Er Dai was on the bed curled up while hugging Xiao Baozi to his chest. Hearing a sound, Er Dai lifted up his head and seemed to let out a breath of air.
His cheeks were covered with several cuts, probably caused by Xiao Baozi’s scratches.
“Panpan, go take Shao Tong and lead her out. Let’s go.” Shao Qing was unable to ask anything, she just tugged Er Dai and held the cuddled up Xiao Baozi. Then she pulled Er Dai along, they had to get out of this base!
