Bright red blood slowly seeped out from the bodies under the Hummer.
Shen Cheng was silent holding the phone, sighed softly, and put it down.
She has to take it easy. Thank you for reading on hololonovels.com
It’s not that she has sympathy for the gangsters who wanted to kill and burn, or any remorse for her behavior of protecting her cub in the game, but Shen Cheng knows that in her own life, she has no such luck of someone silently protecting her.
When she saw the pool of blood, what filled her mind was not disgust or fear, but a reconciliation with her former self.
It was like drinking a can of cold Coca Cola on a hot day. When the burp comes out, the stagnant feeling from the carbonation in the chest will disappear.
What happened when she was a child has become a blur of memories, but the fear and powerlessness at that time still exist. Maybe because she has not successfully taken revenge, but deep within an unknown part of her heart, it remains until today, occasionally appearing like a ghost, reminding her that it was never fully gone.
Looking at this bloody mess, the anger and anxiousness just now gradually dissipated. It’s just playing a game, why is she feeling this way?
Shen Cheng closed the phone screen, remembering she had to cook dinner later. Cub was no longer in danger. She breathed a sigh of relief and began to feel hungry.
“You … are you a psychic?” The gangster, who was a bit slower than others after diving in the mud and did not rush up, became the sole survivor. He barely escaped when the car came crashing down. His eyes wide opened in horror.
Everyone presents saw the scene of the car flying up and slamming down by itself. While the little gangster was glad that he didn’t rush up to attack, he also made an accurate judgment on Li Weilan’s ability. He saw that Li Weilan was one person away from the car just now. If physically lifting a two-ton car might be something that a power-type ability user can do, lifting such a heavy thing in the air without touching it whatsoever can only be done by a mental-type ability user. What an amazing telekinesis power!
No wonder … no wonder this person dared to be so arrogant to them even though his hand was injured. That explains how he was kicked out of thin air when he attempted to strike and kill him just now!
He could only be a rare telekinesis ability user in the apocalypse!
It’s just that the mental ability users are so rare. No one expected that person to be someone with this kind of ability. Otherwise, they would have avoided him long ago, and they would not have gotten into a conflict with such a scumbag!
Li Weilan’s raised his eyelids; he was a little unsure at first. After a while, he smiled slightly: “You know too much.”
“…” “I … I will shut up now. Boss, please let me go! Please don’t laugh at me.” It’s horrible. The little gangster panicked.
He stood in front of Li Weilan tremblingly. Xi Nan came up and kicked him. He then looked at the infrastructure behind the roadblocks and whispered to Li Weilan, “Boss, that should be their base, shall we go in and search for supplies?”
The large collection of supplies originally stored in Li Weilan’s space had been emptied.
He didn’t know what the situation in “Noah” base they were going to was, but in this world, the more supplies, the better. Looking at this group of bad guys, who only had the strength to shout and kill, they must have robbed a lot of petroleum and water from the passersby.
The abilities of these little gangsters are not good, but they chose a good location. At the north-south traffic hub, there are usually many people passing by this path. Li Weilan didn’t know how many passers-by this group of people have killed in the past year just so they could live so well, but judging from their appearance, it seemed they received quite a lot of gains.
Li Weilan smiled and kicked the only gangster who survived because of his slow movement, “Lead the way ahead.”
As soon as he walked into the small building shrouded with the dark and damp environment, a disgusting and nauseating smell hit his nostrils.
Li Weilan’s footsteps slowed down a little.
He was well aware of this pungent smell that resembles disinfectant water. It was unknown how long it has been since the doors and windows have been opened in this building. The whole place was dark. The air smelled like leftovers rotting in a pot for a long time, and as soon as the pot is opened, it slams into the nostrils, making nauseous.
When the sunlight shined inside from the opened door, Li Weilan saw the surroundings and reacted quickly, but Xi Nan wasn’t as fast as him. Just as he was about to speak seeing Li Weilan’s abrupt action, his vision became clear. Xi Nan’s face turned blue the moment he saw the situation in the small building.
Li Weilan didn’t speak, his tall body blocked the entrance. He turned around immediately, glanced at Xi Bei with dark and cold eyes, and said to Xi Nan, “Take your sister and wait for me to come out at the door.”
“Boss…this…” Xi Nan was still a little hesitant. After his sister had a burning fever, her brain became a little damaged. Today was one of those unpleasant days; he naturally wanted to protect his sister from seeing the dirty picture inside. However, he has been calling Li Weilan ‘boss’, but the thigh has not been properly hugged yet and if he only took care of his sister the first thing something happens, ignoring everything else, will Li Weilan have a grudge in his heart?
Li Weilan knew at a glance what Xi Nan was hesitating about. So, he said lightly: “Wait at the door.”
Xi Nan only then withdrew.
The little gangster who led the way looked at Li Weilan’s face that became cold in an instant. He stammered, “I, I, I didn’t participate…”
Before he finished speaking, he only heard a “click”, and the dog chain on the woman’s neck had been broken. She tried to stand up at once she was freed. She waved her hand and a fireball shot out. Thank you for reading on hololonovels.com
When the fireball left her hand, it was only the size of a ping-pong ball. In a matter of seconds, it seemed to absorb the fire elements in the surrounding environment and instantly converged into the size of a basketball. Just by looking at the dark red core of the fireball, you can see that her power is terrifying. This woman who was originally tied to the pillar like a dog is at least a second-order fire ability user.
The little gangster was so frightened that he was about to run out. At first, he thought of reminding the psychic power user not to open the lock casually, but he didn’t even have time to stop the other.
Listening to the sound of the wind, the woman’s ears slightly trembled, her hand flicked, and the fireball went straight to the direction where the gangster fled, leaving only the howling wind detonating along the path.
He was done for!!!
The little gangster stared with a pair of desperate eyes; he shut his eyelids tightly and remained motionless.
After a few seconds, he realized that something was wrong. Why didn’t the pain and burning sensation come one after another?
He slowly opened his eyes little by little. He heard the faint voice of the physic boss in front of him, “remove the blindfold yourself.”
“An unfamiliar voice,” the woman was startled and pulled off her blindfold. It took a while for her eyes to adjust, but she still shrank when she saw Li Weilan.
These days, she has deeply engraved the voices of those who bullied her into her mind.
This person’s voices didn’t sound like any of those bullies.
It’s just that he is still a man.
“Can you see?” Li Weilan’s voice was indifferent, “If you want to kill him, it’s up to you. Just remember that he said he didn’t participate in the activities.”
The woman paused. She turned to the little gangster, who was almost killed by her fireball just now, from her own anxiousness. The person was still shaking on the ground; her beautiful face gradually showed some doubt, “Xiao…Xiao Chu?”
The little gangster recovered from the thrill of escaping death. Although he didn’t know how the fireball disappeared, he still nodded heavily, “it’s me, Sister Yan!”
The woman’s face turned cold. She gritted her teeth. Xiao Chu was indeed the only one in the group who didn’t abuse her, but what this strange man said was right.
She did receive some care from him to survive until now, but the rest of his team, they all…
Li Weilan looked at her coldly, but his thoughts were somewhere else. Since his “guardian angel” had saved him, why did he not show up at all in the presence of another pitiful person?
In the bottom of his heart, he felt his heart chills. Sure enough, even if the angel is capable of saving people, they would still choose who to save.
At this time, Shen Cheng took out her phone. She’s been eating a lot more casually recently.
Despite the fact that she did not order takeout today, she was unable to pull off any culinary feats when cooking alone. With a tagine pot, she just simply made a chicken wing steamed rice, which she’s eating now.
The system flashed a series of three primary task progress indicators after she entered the game. Thank you for reading on hololonovels.com
[Main quest three progress: 1/20, 2/20, 3/20…]
The task progress continued to go up.
Shen Cheng was stunned for a while.
The third main task is to let the cub accept 20 followers. She seemed to only kill some people in one operation just now. She thought that 20 followers might not be possible in a short amount of time, but now the task kept on progressing by itself on the screen. She hasn’t been away for so long, what did cub do?
On the screen, the fire was blazing into the sky behind the cub, and beside him stood a beautiful royal sister, even the Q version of the drawing could not hide the heroic vigor on the woman’s face. Although she was naked and had a bunch of mosaics on her body, she still had a straight waist and an upright posture. She stood beside Li Weilan and looked at the flames that shot up into the sky; the fire snakes flowing out from her hands, but tears rolled down her cheeks.
A cowardly and timid man followed the woman.
Shen Cheng counted the rest of the people – exactly 20.
Hey, is this the group that my cub formed by himself?
Grandma was only away for a while, and little cub had already accepted 20 brothers for her. It’s amazing.
At the end of the task three notification, [Completed] popped out.
Shen Cheng took a look at the in-game mall. The main task 2 and 3 gave her a total of 30 gold coins, “what should I buy?”
She glanced at little cub, and felt that his hand injury was very annoying. There was a [Universal Healing Ointment] in the system mall for the treatment of trauma. The price was only 10 gold coins. She clicked it and bought the medicine first.
There was a sudden coolness in Li Weilan’s hand. With a thump in his heart, he turned his arms slightly. The arm that couldn’t be used a moment ago was now completely healed?
Greetings from the translator
*Sigh … just uploaded 3 chapters so far (except this one) and already received some low ratings on NU. You can’t judge an entire 145-chapters novel from these 3 chapters. Can’t they be a little patient?
BTW, why was this fire ability user lady still standing naked in front of 20 something people? There absolutely was no cloth/sheet/rag/anything whatsoever to cover up? But hey, her body her choice 🤷🏻♀️ .. idk .. I wouldn’t do that tho 😬
❤️ SPECIAL THANKS ❤️
