Chapter 143 - Zombie! Really Appeared! Terrifying!
Wei Xiao Bei did not know whether to laugh or cry. Although Huang Kun appeared as if his dreams had come true, he still showed the cuteness of a junior high schooler.
"Enough. Tell me about the situation when you returned."
Wei Xiao Bei used his finger to tap the table and asked.
Huang Kun looked at his master and became serious. He did not randomly speak anymore and placed down his burger. Then he sneakily looked left and right as if he was an undercover secret agent and spoke in a low voice.
In reality, when Huang Kun left The Dust World, nothing special happened. The only troublesome thing was that he had missed his meal time and got scolded by his mother.
Afterwards, he fell asleep again until Wei Xiao Bei had called him.
"What do you plan to do in the future?" Wei Xiao Bei hesitated and pointed it out.
After all, compared to him, Huang Kun was but a child. Although he had potential and a good temperament, Wei Xiao Bei did not have the heart to ask him whether he wanted to go for a stroll in a place like The Dust World.
It was too dangerous.
"I will follow master! I will not study anymore in the future and follow master and kill our way into The Dust World."
When he said this, Huang Kun was very excited. His eyes longed for the future ahead as if he had already gained the power to shake The Dust World.
Wei Xiao Bei was speechless. He truly did not understand a junior high schooler's thoughts. If it were other people, majority would have chosen safety rather than danger.
This was the most normal and simple choice.
However, a junior high schooler was different. They were pa.s.sionate, impulsive, and never thought over anything properly.
After a bit of persuasion, threat, and intimidation, Huang Kun returned to normal and promised Wei Xiao Bei that he would go to school. Moreover, Wei Xiao Bei could only bring him to The Dust World once a week.
In reality, Wei Xiao Bei did not know if they could replicate Huang Kun's way of entering The Dust World through playing games. If Huang Kun could not enter The Dust World again, then that was also a good thing for Wei Xiao Bei.
"You should go back home and do your homework."
Wei Xiao Bei did not stay anymore. He threw down these words and left.
Huang Kun had no choice but to behavingly return home.
As for any thoughts of entering The Dust World, although he had the guts, pa.s.sion, and impulse, he did not dare put it into action. After all, he had previously been chased by the Zombies while running away in terror, so it had created a small fear within him.
If he just waited another week, Wei Xiao Bei would bring him in so he could safely kill monsters. If he secretly entered, he might just die.
Huang Kun understood the benefits and harms of this.
After hailing a cab, Wei Xiao Bei hurried into the apartment building.
He wanted to see the situation in the apartment building.
It was not that he did not have anything to do nor because he was worried about the demolition work that was happening.
But it was because the pressure from the co-renting situation was too heavy for him. The strange footsteps would appear in his mind from time to time. Although Wei Xiao Bei knew that that this was just a delusion from heavy stress, it had acc.u.mulated for long enough that he was suffering from it.
Additionally, if it was possible, Wei Xiao Bei prepared to enter The Dust World from the apartment building before the demolition began. This way, he would feel a bit more secure and alleviate the stress that had piled up. He also wanted to find the relations.h.i.+p between the place he was currently renting and the apartment building.
However, Wei Xiao Bei did not know what the apartment building currently looked like, so he needed to check the current situation.
When he arrived, he observed the surroundings and saw groups of people moving out. The perimeter walls were covered in red 'demolition' words.
A few courtyards that had been completely vacated were already sealed with red tape, and iron chains had stopped the gates from opening.
"Bro, give me a cigarette."
After walking a few steps, his eyes s.h.i.+ned when he saw a few Da Hao Real Estate employees that were chaining the courtyard doors.
Wei Xiao Bei immediately bought a pack of cigarettes and pulled the person.
Being suddenly pulled, the person was not able to resist at all and screamed. However, his mouth was immediately sealed by the cigarette.
"You, what are you doing?" The man was around 30 years old, thin and average height. From a single glance, it was easy to tell that he had just arrived at Cui Hu City. When he saw the tall and st.u.r.dy Wei Xiao Bei, he became slightly nervous.
"I used to live here, and I just want to ask a question. When are you going to begin the demolition work? I still haven't received my money yet."
Wei Xiao Bei spoke ambiguously, making the person think that Wei Xiao Bei was afraid that he would not receive the demolition money.
"No problem. At most we would begin the demolition in a week. The remaining money would be directly placed on your account.
It seems that the employees had been properly trained. Even a new employee could say things clear and logically.
After thanking the employee, Wei Xiao Bie left and arrived at a noodle stand. He asked for a bowl of noodles and two salted eggs.
After waiting for the noodles to be cooked, Wei Xiao Bei's brain was moving.
At most a week was left. This meant that he needed to seize the moment since he could only enter The Dust World up to six times. However, the negative state of mind that acc.u.mulated from ma.s.sacring enemies in The Dust World could not just disappear in a day.
This was also why Wei Xiao Bei did not just enter The Dust World everyday.
After all, Wei Xiao Bei was not a robot.
If the place began the demolition, he would have no way of entering The Dust World from the same place anymore.
Thinking about this, Wei Xiao Bei was slightly depressed.
What other methods could I use?
With Wei XIao Bei's intelligence, he thought up of a lot of methods, but most of them were either unreasonable or unreliable.
For example, with his strength, he could just threaten the boss of the Da Hao group to stop his demolition plans. Another would be to cause trouble when the demolition was beginning to make the other party give up their plans.
If Wei Xiao Bei followed these plans, there was a chance of success, but the success would not last long.
Wei Xiao Bei had been someone who previously worked for the Da Hao group before. Wei Xiao bei had also seen Wan Da Hao before when he was inspecting the company.
Wan Da Hao could be described as having a resolute disposition. Every decision of his was swift and decisive to the point that it did not allow anyone else to interfere.
If a person like this was placed during wartime in the past, this person would have been a formidable character.
Usually, a person like Wan Da Hao would not change his mind even at knife point.
The most annoying thing was that the financial capacity of the Da Hao group was immense. Even though the Da Hao group did not stir up trouble in Cui Hu City, they were still in high demand whether it was the light side of society or the dark side. According to rumors, Wan Da Hao was born in the dark side and then climbed ash.o.r.e the white side, but at present, he was still hiding his power underground without anyone knowing.
In reality, the Lou Lan Club that Wei Xiao Bei visited had proved it.
There was an underground fighting arena, and the security guards were holding stun batons. A few crucial places were even protected by guards with stun guns. As for real fire arms, Wei Xiao Bei was still unsure of its use.
In short, if Wei Xiao Bei implemented his plan, then he needed to lay bear his objective. Even if the apartment building was preserved, the next events would be much more troublesome.
For a person like Wan Da Hao, being humiliated like that would require blood to be spilled.
Although Wei Xiao Bei was not afraid of Wan Da Hao's revenge, he still had his principles. Moreover, no matter how strong his martial arts were, they were no match against guns.
Thinking about his situation, Wei Xiao Bei shook his head and ate his noodles.
Wei Xiao Bei did not want to cause trouble, but trouble wanted to find him.
"Help! Someone died! There's a lunatic!"
When Wei Xiao Bei had just swallowed a salted egg and ate half the noodles when he suddenly heard a terrified cry for help from afar. Soon after, a few people ran over from the nearby courtyard.
Their expression were filled with alarm and extreme panic.
Among the people running were tenants, landlords, and even Da Hao Employees. However, their only action was to run.
Everything behind them was chaos.
A person with tattered clothes was pulling another person down and then bit on the other person's neck, trying to tear it apart. On the side, there was a person with a wooden stick who was confronting a few people. Naturally, the person was only defending himself one-sidedly. After a few seconds, the other people pounced onto his body and sent the wooden stick away.
The entire place was filled with chaos and blood.
Wei Xiao Bei's back was drenched in cold swear as his hairs stood on ends.
What is going on!
The Zombies from The Dust World appeared in reality!
In an instant, Wei Xiao Bei's brain quickly worked.
Should I go save people? Or quietly leave?
Since he did not know if there were any hidden monitors, Wei Xiao Bei was hesitant. After all, even a Guo Shu expert would not be willing to expose one of the country's greatest killing power to their surroundings.
It was not because he was afraid of getting caught in camera after doing bad things, but because of a natural sense of unease that haunted him.
The sound of a woman and a child came from within the courtyard. However, after spitting out a single word, they stopped. It was clear that normal people could not harm these Zombies that were not afraid of getting injured. Moreover, the sudden situation had probably terrified them to the point that they lost all strength in their body.
Wei Xiao Bei tightly grasped the chopstick in his hand and broke it to pieces.
He could not look on anymore.
Although Wei Xiao Bei was not a saint, he still had his principles.
He grabbed the stool he was sitting on and placed 50 yuan on the table. Then he spoke to the owner of the stall, "Let me borrow this stool."
Before he finished speaking, Wei Xiao Bei moved like a monkey through the sea of people. He quickly ran towards the constant sound of 'help' in front of him.
Because the machete was a bit long, it was not convenient to bring. As a result, Wei Xiao Bei had left it inside his new home. Moreover, the great spear on his waist was too eye-grabbing, so he did not want to use it. On the contrary, the stool was around 1.8 meters long. The wood was thick so it was useable.
Chapter 144 - Real Zombies? What's Going On?
A young woman riding an electric scooter was cruising through the crowd of Zombies. She did not stop accelerating after witnessing the scene of carnage. In the end, due to the speed of the scooter, the Zombies were not able to catch her. However, she just had to make a mistake. When she rode out of the crowd of Zombies, the scooter hit the wall ahead of her and threw her off.
Unfortunately, the Zombies were attracted to the sound she caused and chased after her. This had startled her as she shouted for help, but she did not even try to escape by herself.
The movement of the Zombies was slow. It was a bit slower than the Zombies Wei Xiao Bei encountered in Cui Hu University.
If the woman had gotten up herself and limped away, she would have been able to escape. However, that was impossible. For a normal woman, crying out for help was already not a bad thing when they encountered something that terrifying which should only be happening in movies.
A Zombie that was grabbing toward the woman had suddenly been hit on the head by a wooden stool. Black brain juice came seeping out, and the Zombie collapsed on the ground.
The woman was truly weak. Seeing Wei Xiao Bei smash the head of the Zombie, she actually fainted from fright.
This made Wei Xiao Bei bitterly smile and shook his head. Then he struck another Zombie in the head.
In reality, the number of Zombies on the streets was only a few. There were 20 of them in total, but they were not afraid of being injured at all. Their method of attacking was also quite unrestrained, which caused fear in others.
The people nearby finally came to their senses. When they saw Wei Xiao Bei strike the Zombies down, a few braver people who had chivalrous hearts also joined the fray.
At this time, the people who had seen the movie knew what was happening.
They knew that it was real Zombies attacking them. A minority of them still thought that the Zombies were lunatics that broke out from a mental hospital. They tried to persuade the chivalrous people to not break the law. After all, lunatics still had the right to live.
Under the combined efforts of the group of people, all the Zombies in the streets had been knocked down, while some had been killed. Those that had their limbs broken were still struggling on the ground.
When Wei Xiao Bei saw that the group of people had control of the situation, he jumped over a wall and checked on the situation in every courtyard.
Some courtyards were unscathed. The tenants inside even nervously guarded the doors of their homes with various tools. Some courtyards only had corpses left in them and Zombies that were tearing at them.
Wei Xiao Bei did not care if the corpses might turn into Zombies or not, but he killed every Zombie that he encountered.
The number of Zombies inside the courtyards had slightly exceeded the amount outside, but because the area was separated into a few courtyards, killing them was effortless.
After killing all the Zombies, Wei Xiao Bei threw away the wooden stool and took advantage of the chaos to escape. If he continued to stay there, the police would arrive, and he would not be able to walk away easily.
Wei Xiao Bei did not want to become some kind of public figure.
As for the question of the Zombie virus proliferation, he felt that the chivalrous people would be able to deal with it.
When he left the place, he saw that a few robust individuals were tying up the injured people.
He thanked the Zombie culture that had spread through the dissemination of the movies. Otherwise, how would the people know that human beings who had been bitten might turn into Zombies?
Wei Xiao Bei walked to the Cheng Clan Dojo with a heavy heart.
Although Wei Xiao Bei had earned evolution points from the invading Zombies that suddenly appeared, an alarm had been raised within his mind especially after he designated reality as a secure place.
It seemed that the relations.h.i.+p between the Dust World and reality was not as distant as Wei Xiao Bei thought it was!
This time the Zombies appeared. Then, what would appear next?
Green Dwarfs? Mutated Mice? Sacred Beetles? Or maybe the Big Tree Spirit?
In short, Wei Xiao Bei saw that any monster in the Dust World could appear in reality and cause ma.s.s terror.
This was the unfortunate trait about humans. Their mental defenses were poor.
It was to the extent that a small amount of information could already cause ma.s.s panic.
Naturally, if the monsters of the Dust World appeared en ma.s.se, reality would not be a safe place anymore!
Just the Licker was enough to destroy the army when it appeared in the big city.
After returning to the dojo, his master and third senior apprentice brother had not yet returned. When his big senior apprentice brother saw him, he explained a few matters and let Wei Xiao Bei guard the dojo. He himself carried a large bag of things to go visit little senior apprentice sister in Cui Hu University.
When his big senior apprentice brother left, Wei Xiao Bei stood on the practice grounds and calmed down his mental state. Then, he trained his Qi.
After opening the next path, Wei Xiao Bei returned to his room, took a bath, laid down on his bed, and inspected his evolution points.
The Zombies that he had killed in the Dust World and the apartment street had increased the number of his evolution points to 1030 points.
Although this was not the most evolution points he had earned, 1030 evolution points was still a lot.
Without a doubt, power would be the key to preserve his life for whatever happens next!
At the present time, Wei Xiao Bei had a lot of people he wanted to protect such as his parents, his siblings, his master, his apprentice siblings, and others.
Naturally, the most important people to him were his parents and siblings.
He pushed these distracting thoughts to the back of his head. Wei Xiao Bei carefully calculated to himself.
Without a doubt, being conservative with his points was already pointless now.
Moreover, if his power increased, the sub attributes would reach 20 points which would allow him to gain a special ability that would greatly help him to preserve his life.
For example, the elementary power burst after increasing his muscle attribute would increase his power by two folds in a short amount of time. Naturally, this kind of reckless increase had cost him and caused injuries to his muscles. The only solution to this was increasing his st.u.r.diness.
St.u.r.diness was also counted as the body's power.
As for the ground rooting ability that he gained after increasing his balance, it was a strategic type ability. It allowed Wei Xiao Bei to walk on walls as long as the inclination did not go beyond 90 degrees. If the inclination did not exceed 45 degrees, then he could even run!
His health attribute's elementary regeneration need not even be mentioned. It had allowed his body to recover five times faster.
After considering a bit, Wei Xiao Bei focused on endurance!
Endurance was the body's ability to persevere and also the body's stamina. The stronger the endurance was, the more he could continue fighting and battle against more enemies.
Now that Zombies appeared in reality, encountering large groups of Zombies both in reality and in the Dust Word was possible. There might even be other monsters that would become involved. At that time, the endurance was an important attribute.
After concentrating on it, his evolution points quickly decreased.
14.07, 14.08, 14.09 …….
When his endurance reached 20 points, Wei Xiao Bei felt his muscles wiggle just like when he increased the muscle attribute to 20. However, the pain was much lesser. A warm feeling immediately spread throughout his muscles and bones.
Wei Xiao Bei did not sweat at all. When the strange feeling disappeared, the tiredness he was feeling had completely disappeared as if he had slept and woke up naturally. The feeling he felt was like bathing in a hot spring that relaxed his body.
Wei Xiao Bie once again looked at his status panel.
At this time, a new ability appeared in his status panel.
Endurance: 20 [Energy Recovery]
As Wei Xiao Bei inspected this ability, a brief description appeared in his mind.
Energy Recovery: Pa.s.sive ability. Increases stamina recovery speed and mental fatigue recovery speed.
Wei Xiao Bei could not help but smile at the description.
His ground rooting ability had allowed him to widen his available strategies. The number of places he could go to and dodge to had increased. This new ability on the other hand guaranteed his battle logistics.
First, this ability was different from active abilities like elementary power burst and ground rooting. It was a pa.s.sive ability like elementary regeneration. As long as he had the ability, it would continue to be active.
Naturally, Wei Xiao Bei felt that this ability also needed nutritional support. If there was no food to supply the body with energy, then this ability might become unusable.
Additionally, this ability did not only increase his stamina recovery speed, but it had also increased the speed at which he was able to get rid of fatigue.
From his point of view, this was equivalent to decreasing the cooldown he had in entering the Dust World. Moreover, he could also increase his time in training his Qi and opening more channels.
Wei Xiao Bei felt that something was different when he gained this ability.
He was very satisfied, but he immediately noticed something on his status panel that made him enter a daze.
His creature rank had unknowingly increased.
Creature Rank: 2 star (Any main attribute increases to 20 points. Obtained ability, elementary intimidation.)
Without a doubt, when his vitality had exceeded 20 points, his creature rank increased.
Wei Xiao Bei had not paid any attention to his creature rank for a long time already. This time, he had gained a small surprise.
At this moment, he had obtained the ability, elementary intimidation.
Wei Xiao Bei had noticed that this ability was located under special skills. Moreover, there was even an explanation.
Elementary Intimidation: When facing a creature below 2-Star that is the same race as the user, the creature would be afflicted with negative statuses of fear, reverence, panic, etc. Any afflicted creature would run away, stop advancing, wors.h.i.+p, etc.
This special ability was not bad. Although it could only be used on the same race of the user, which means humans, it was an extra harvest.
I should try this ability sometime to see its effects.
Wei Xiao Bei became happy, but the remaining 436 evolution points placed him into deep contemplation.
If it was something battle related, then placing them in any of the sub attributes under agility would be better. The three remaining sub-attributes under agility that were not 20 points were at 16 points. He could instantly increase any of them to 20 points and gain another special ability.
The problem was that Wei Xiao Bei wanted to put them into a sub-attribute of awareness. Among them, intuition was the most important.
While they were in the Cui Hu Department Store in the Dust World, if his intuition did not alert him of danger, then he would not have been able to react to the Lickers that fast. He might have even become a corpse on the fourth floor.
It goes without saying that having an ability that could warn him of nearby enemies was important in the Dust World.
The problem was that his intuition was at 11 points. If he placed his evolution points there, it would not reach 20 points.
This was Wei Xiao Bei's dilemma.
In the end, his evolution points was not enough.
Wei Xiao Bei sighed. In the end, he still decided to put them in intuition.
Although his intuition could not instantly be increased to 20 points, increasing it would still enhance the accuracy of his intuition. At the very least, it would allow Wei Xiao Bei to detect danger at an earlier time.
After using up his evolution points until only 6 points remained, his intuition increased to 18.3 points, and his awareness attribute increased to 15.56 points.
In reality, Wei Xiao Bei wanted to go into the Dust World and take a look. He wanted to find out why Zombies appeared in reality. However, since he had agreed to guard the dojo, he could not break the promise.
What should I do for the time being?
Wei Xiao Bei turned on his computer and looked at materials and information concerning Zombies.
He felt that the information that he previously looked up were mostly related to legends and myths. The monsters in the Dust World that appeared were not only from legends and myths.
He decided to look up Zombies and a few web novels, especially those influential novels. Other than that were games and popular folklores.
Wei Xiao Bei was not an idiot. The Zombies that appeared in the Dust World seemed to have a mysterious connection with the Resident Evil movies. Connecting that with losing consciousness to enter the Dust World, Wei Xiao Bei had a 50% hunch.
The relations.h.i.+p between the Dust World and reality might have something to do with human activity.
Naturally, Wei Xiao Bei could not fully confirm this at the moment. The Zombies seemed to have a close connection with the movies, but it was also possible that the Zombies in the Dust World existed before the movies.
He still needed to slowly examine the cause of this situation.
There were a lot of information on the internet. There were also a lot of movies about Zombies. Wei Xiao Bei even watched few of them one by one, but he ended up only looking at the description of the movies due to the length of the films.
Watching movies wastes too much time.
The other source of information that Wei Xiao used was web novels that had a huge impact. Wei Xiao Bei did not have time to look at them right now, so he saved them onto his phone. He would look at them once he had more time.
When his big senior apprentice brother made a phone call asking him to open the door, he looked at the time and saw that it was already 7 o'clock.
