Volume 2 Chapter 15 Deep in the Forest
Reminder I will be away for vacation Dec 11-Dec 29 so here is the early release for those two weeks!
Most likely because he wanted to show good faith, Qiao Mo personally led the group to help Shao Qing capture the variation vegetation. Although he didn’t bring a lot of people, each and every single one of them were elites.
He brought three peak rank 3s and another 5 rank 2s who were also nearly at rank 3. In the base there were rank 4 superhumans, but because the location they were going to wasn’t that dangerous, they didn’t have to utilize any of them.
Rank 4 superhumans were existences that could take charge. To a base, they were the top forces and couldn’t be used so easily.
Following Qiao Mo was very comfortable. His mode of transportation was a business model caravan so there was a lot of space. There was even a bed inside which Shao Qing and Yan Qiyue monopolized.
Yan Qiyue particularly enjoyed resting on Shao Qing’s chest. Even though Qiao Mo and several other superhumans were beside them, Yan Qiyue would still openly take over Shao Qing’s chest, not shy at all.
Naturally all those rank 3 superhumans all lowered their heads, not daring to look at Yan Qiyue. They were all scared they might see something they shouldn’t and be killed.
After all Yan Qiyue’s temper was known to be shady and unpredictable. No one wanted to be under fire.
Shao Qing was holding a piece of crystal and was currently lying down to absorb it and restore her body. The zombie king’s crystal had contained too much energy. Although most of it was used to restore her body, there was still a portion that had entered the crystal within her brain.
In the beginning the shock was too big, but it had gradually become more gentle. Like before, a portion slowly entered her nucleus and slowly started to fill it up then another portion went to Shao Qing’s body where it helped restore her internal organs and arteries.
Even though this process was rather slow, the current her could already bring out 50% of her previous ability. It was only when she overused her superpowers did her internals start to hurt.
“Wife, a superhuman power source should be better than a zombie crystal.” Yan Qiyue knew that Shao Qing’s injuries weren’t light, he immediately felt his heart ache. Thinking about it he said: “Wait until we get back and I can check the inventory. Even though we don’t have a lot of wood elemental superhuman source crystals, there should still be a few. You can absorb it and see.”
Among the group, the rank three wood elemental couldn’t help but shrink back trying to pretend he didn’t exist. Otherwise he was scared Yan Qiyue might settle on them as his crystal source…..
“Within my body there’s still a piece of high ranked crystal. Right now I can’t absorb too high ranked zombie crystals. Even more I can’t absorb source crystals otherwise the powers will collide and add on to my injuries.” Shao Qing rubbed Yan Qiyue’s head. She has started to like this action. Yan Qiyue’s short hair was very soft to touch and it gave a nice feeling.
Qiao Mo couldn’t help but lift his brows up and ask: “Zombie crystals could be stored within the body? Could this be a new absorption method?”
“It’s because my physique is different from others. A normal person shouldn’t try this.” Shao Qing shook her head, then was suddenly hugged by Yan Qiyue. Yan Qiyue gave Qiao Mo a dangerous look. His wife is sincere but Qiao Mo was an old fox. What if Qiao Mo does something tricky?
Qiao Mo just thought that Yan Qiyue was jealous. The Yan Qiyue from before was vile and reckless but comparing with his present jealous nature, it was basically two different people.
He couldn’t help but shake his head, but it also made him yearn to find a women he liked himself. He could share everything with her, be doted and dote her. It’s definitely not a bad thing.
There were quite a few peak rank 2’s escorting the car, so Shao Qing and them didn’t encounter any dangers at all. They stopped once during the afternoon. Shao Qing remembered that Yan Qiyue’s stomach wasn’t feeling well so she had brought the supplies necessary to make soup. Harvesting some vegetables and mushrooms that weren’t poisonous nearby, she began cooking chicken soup for him.
While she was cooking she began thinking that next time she should cook carp. Carp soup was the best for an upset stomach.
Not mentioning the taste, just the smell made Qiao Mo and the rest repeatedly look over. Yan Qiyue had no intention of sharing any of the beloved soup Shao Qing had made for him with the others. He badly wanted to throw away those people who were looking at his soup covetously.
Shifting over, Qiao Mo looked at the soup and said: “Look at how big the pot is. You won’t be able to finish it all by yourself. Why don’t you let me help you!”
Yan Qiyue sneered: “Who said I can’t finish it all?”
Then right in front of everyone, he took the still scalding hot soup and began to drink it. In fact he drank it extremely quickly as if he was scared someone would snatch it away from him. Finally he wiped his mouth: “I’m finished.”
Qiao Mo looked at Yan Qiyue’s protruding belly and him sticking out his thumb. That’s just too much.
Yan Qiyue coldly smiled. He definitely wouldn’t allow anyone to taste Shao Qing’s soup! Definitely Not!
“Huh? You’re already finished?” When Shao Qing turned her back around she noticed that Yan Qiyue had a protruding belly sitting there. She couldn’t help but reach out and touch his stomach: ”You can still eat?”
“……..” Seeing the plate of meat and peppers in her hand, he gritted his teeth: “I can still eat!”
Shao Qing replied: “Don’t force yourself if you can’t eat. In any case there’s a lot of people so it won’t be wasted. Your stomach still isn’t well, don’t torture it.”
Yan Qiyue clenched his teeth: Who said? I’m still not full yet!” After he said that, he let out a belch. Feeling a bit embarrassed, he covered his mouth: “I just drank a bit too much soup. Actually, you can’t get full from soup. Just give me a moment. When I come back I’ll finish it for you.”
Before leaving, Yan Qiyue gave Qiao Mo a particularly vicious glare to protect his food. Qiao Mo rubbed his nose feeling helpless. He has known Yan Qiyue for a really long time, but he had never see him act as if he was a child.
After letting out the water in his body, he valiantly returned to war again. Then he forcefully stuffed everything Shao Qing made down his throat. Supporting himself, he went over to Shao Qing.
Shao Qing could only rub his stomach and sigh: “Now you feel the pain?”
With reddish eyes, he stubbornly refuted: “It doesn’t hurt.”
With nothing she could do, Shao Qing sighed and just continued to rub his stomach. The superhumans who were looking on at the side all had their jaws dropped.
That’s Yan Qiyue? Are they dreaming? Could it be that something had taken over his body?! This made no sense at all!”
When it was dinner and breakfast time, Shao Qing didn’t dare to make too much. Seeing that Yan Qiyue had a greed that has reached a perverted level she only made enough for him. In any case she didn’t eat much since she would have to puke them all out anyways.
When they arrived at the location, the superhumans immediately got into formation surrounding Shao Qing and the other two in the middle. Their cooperation was extremely well coordinated as they advanced forward.
