Chapter 46 Revealed Identities
I’m back!!! Thanks for the long wait!
Er Dai really resembled a wolf forced to be at a dead end. His nails were dug into the monsters nape, while he continuously used his forehead to smash into the monsters face. The monster attempted to extract his hand from Er Dai’s stomach, but Er Dai had grabbed onto his arm so it wouldn’t escape.
But, the monster’s strength was just too great. Er Dai just simply couldn’t resist. After easily being stabbed through the abdomen, he was effortlessly held by the top of his head.
Shao Qing was able to hear the sound from Er Dai’s nails and the monsters bones grind up against each other. Afterwards, Er Dai’s body was just tossed aside.
Even though his abdomen had a massive hole, even though his body was about to fall apart, Er Dai continued to drag his broken body to risk his life and crawl towards Shao Qing.
Er Dai didn’t know at what time he gained a mind. He only knew that one day he suddenly woke up. Only after did he confusedly discover that he was somewhat different.
Following his companions around to kill and hunt down humans, it was then that he had met Shao Qing.
His intuition told him that Shao Qing was his companion. But, Shao Qing was different than the other companions he had by his side. From her appearance she looked completely different than the rotting ugly zombies, thus he couldn’t resist following her.
This was when he was caught by Shao Qing… originally Er Dai had prepared for the possibility that he would be eaten by Shao Qing; after all between zombies, targeting each other’s crystals was something very common.
However, Shao Qing didn’t do that. She gave him food, crystals, and even a name. It made him recover something that he felt that he had lost.
At that moment, Er Dai only felt that Shao Qing was very pretty and he wanted to follow her forever, and always protect her.
Therefore, even if he died once again, it wouldn’t matter.
As long as she was ok then it would be fine.
Shao Qing watched Er Dai crawl little by little and then looked at the indestructible monster. Slowly she retrieved two crystals from her dimensional space. One was an electric elemental crystal while the other was an earth elemental crystal, they were the ones she had not used yet.
Absorbing the two crystals energy, in a second her body would be bursting with energy. This was her opportunity. Even though afterwards she might die or become crippled, Shao Qing had no other choice but to do this.
From the time she had entered the army, her military instructor had asked her why she had chosen to be part of the special forces. Shao Qing had replied that she wanted to protect people.
Now, just as before she still wanted to protect people. It’s just now the people she wanted to protect has now become Xiao Baozi and Er Dai.
But before Shao Qing could even utilize the two crystals, a person had already snatched away a crystal from her hand and swallowed it whole.
This person wasn’t some stranger, it was Yan Hanqing who with great difficulty had crawled over. When he had swallowed the crystal, that steel man had let out a miserable scream. His entire body suddenly erupted with thunder, colouring the ground yellow. After his skin started to crack as fresh blood started to trickle out.
Yan Hanqing did his best to throw himself towards the monster. When the monster came into contact with the thunder on Yan Hanqing’s body, it stated to let out a blood curdling screech. In a flash, Yan Hanqing hugged the monster as they both fell off the high slope, the fierce thunder unceasingly radiating.
Propping her body up to stand up, she staggered into a run. If she absorbed the crystal, she would’ve had at least a sliver of a chance of surviving. But an ordinary person like Yan Hanqing swallowing the crystal, what else but exploding could be the result?
Shao Qing ran down the slope. Yan Hanqing and the monster were already lying down in the depression on the ground not moving. The electrified bones had already turned black. When Shao Qing headed over to support Yan Hanqing, she accidentally touched the monster. In a blink of an eye he exploded into ashes, leaving behind a pitch black crystal stone within the pile.
Touching Yan Hanqing, she was immediately shocked numb from head to toe. But, she clenched her teeth and carried Yan Hanqing and took the crystal and headed up the slope.
Hiding on the high slope were the wounded members. After carrying Yan Hanqing up, Shao Qing had no energy left as she kneeled beside Er Dai.
Then she started to check on Er Dai’s injuries. If he was a living person, he probably would have been dead already. At that moment, Shao Qing was extremely grateful that Er Dai was a zombie.
His abdomen had a circular hole which one could see through to see the ground. Er Dai stared at Shao Qing feeling wronged, it was clear that the situation wasn’t that bad.
Shao Qing let out a sigh of relief, but the more severe case was just behind her.
Shao Qing expressionlessly looked towards Gu Panpan and Gu Chuan. “As you guys have seen, Er Dai is a zombie and I am not completely human. Once before, I was close to death and was infected by the zombie virus causing me to turn into this state. I’m really sorry that I have kept this from you guys for so long, but you guys can leave now. Unfortunately I need the car or else I won’t be able to move the injured people, but you guys can take away all the provisions inside.”
Shao Qing understood that not everyone could accept being together with a zombie. Even if she was rational, everyone would still be scared about that one night where she might lose her sanity and bite everyone here.
Therefore even if Gu Panpan and Gu Chuan chose to leave, she wouldn’t blame them at all. After all that is just human nature.
Gu Panpan and Gu Chuan stared at each other for a long time. Then Gu Panpan bit her lips and let out a shout. “Qing Jiejie, I’m sorry….”
