Shen Cheng noticed something like a shock wave rushed towards Cub as she stared at the screen.
What was that?
Looking at the direction, this fleeting shock wave came from the upstairs, but cub hasn’t gone to the second floor yet, so the map upstairs was still dark, causing Shen Cheng’s heart to tense up. She couldn’t help but worry for her cub. They were now facing a completely invisible enemy. What is the situation upstairs now? Thank you for reading on hololonovels.com
At that moment, Li Weilan felt a sharp pain like a needle stick.
The sharp pain was very clear, as if it were a warning not to go any farther.
Li Weilan knew what was going on almost instantly; he may have met a spiritual mutant beast.
The rumors about this Walmart are true! There are really high-level mutant beasts ensconced here. Moreover, this mutant beast can control people, a spiritual mutation that could even make people kill each other!
This mutant beast’s attack only lasted for a few second; it was more like a silent warning.
If it was someone else, they’d be inclined to retreat after thinking about the good harvest he reaped from the first floor, but Li Weilan stopped in front of the elevator leading to the second floor, paused for a moment, and then continued. He made up his decision in a matter of seconds and walked upstairs.
He clenched the weapon that the mystery man had given him in his hand, as if it gave him a sense of security and confidence.
“…” Cub, you have a lot of courage.
Shen Cheng’s heart was still a little stifled in front of the screen, even though she knew the game would undoubtedly make her cub go deeper and not turn back, especially when Li Weilan stepped on the second-floor elevator and slowly went up; she could finally see the second floor map.
This Walmart looks like it has four floors in total. The third and fourth floors are still dark. Originally, the second floor was stocked with fresh food.
The power plant was destroyed and the electricity went out after the end of the world, causing the fresh food to spoil completely.
The floor was a mess, and the food left in the freezer was emitting a foul odor.
Shen Cheng tried to follow the cub’s footsteps and put her hand on his avatar. The system prompts jumped out one after another:
You can’t even tell what those clumps of decaying products were originally.
Shen Cheng looked at her cub’s face, although it was still so cute, but a debuff suddenly appeared on his head.
[-1, -1, -1…] He kept bleeding red, and his HP was dropping one by one. Although he didn’t show any strangeness, Shen Cheng knew that the cub was not as casual as he seemed.
What’s up with this debuff? Thank you for reading on hololonovels.com
If it was a rapid blood loss, it might be the attack of the monster BOSS, but Shen Cheng pulled the camera around and couldn’t find the shadow of the Boss. She took a closer look at CubCub’s face and noticed how he seemed to be trying his best to endure something. His Adam’s apple was rolling, and he was obviously nauseated and uncomfortable. Looking at his nose, it seems he was holding his breath and only breathing after quite awhile.
The cub didn’t say it, but the grandmother was so distressed. How stinky does it have to be to make him repeatedly suppress his desire to vomit?
Seeing her cub’s slightly pale face, she couldn’t help but search around the system mall. If she remembered correctly, there is a relatively cheap prop that she can afford.
Shen Cheng’s eyes lit up.
She clicked on a small item in the system mall that only costs 3 gold coins. Thinking about the daily income of 40 gold coins from farming, she didn’t think this price was very expensive. When she was not online, the cub was farming on his own and earned them a fortune, which was all for cub anyway, so Shen Cheng was willing to spend this little amount.
Li Weilan struggled to make progress through the decomposing bones and flesh. The stench was so powerful that it obliterated all of his senses.
Li Weilan had no idea how strong the putrid smell of a large amount of flesh could be.
He frowned a little, dizzy, as if he’d forgotten all about the sharp pain in his head.
Even for someone like Li Weilan, he couldn’t help but question his decision as he walked through the muddy minced meat and grease on the ground. Would it be wiser to turn around and leave?
When this disgusting “quack” sounded just as he stepped down, he couldn’t help but flinch a little in comparison to the unknown reward on the other end.
But the next moment… the stench suddenly disappeared.
It was replaced by the faint scent of cedar, like the fresh air after the first snowfall, with no rancidity or nausea, and the odor that had made him feel ill earlier vanished as quickly as it appeared.
The decaying flesh beneath his feet, on the other hand, remained unchanged.
He was still surrounded by filth and gloom…
Only his sense of smell had changed.
Li Weilan was taken aback.
His nostrils even twitched because of self-doubt, and after carefully smelling it twice, it was confirmed that the stench was indeed gone.
Is there something wrong with his sense of smell?
Li Weilan raised his hand, as if trying to grab something, and stared blankly at the empty air in front of him, him eyes blurred.
Could it be that the mysterious man is the wind ability user? It is indeed possible for the top-level wind power to do this by entirely replacing around one square meter of air surrounding him, wrapping it around him like an air ball, and isolating any air exchanges with the outside world. However, this is just too time consuming, and the amount of energy required to isolate the air is incredible. All this just for his comfort at this moment? Is that person crazy?
Li Weilan was stunned, unsure whether to be grateful or think he was too inspirational.
He bit his lower lip and swallowed the phrase “I’m not that squeamish.”
Shen Cheng smiled joyfully as she watched the blood loss debuff on top of the little villain’s head finally stop, and his face return to normal ruddiness. Thank you for reading on hololonovels.com
She actually didn’t expect the effect of the air purifier to be so good. Originally, she was thinking that it would be okay to waste 3 gold coins, but seeing the cub’s brows stretched and her calm look restored, her old mother’s heart became inexplicably happy.
But at this moment when Li Weilan suddenly became clear in his mind, he noticed there seems to be something wrong. He didn’t see a zombie near this Wal-Mart, and there were not even animals or birds. The silence seems to suggest that this mutant beast in the supermarket likes carcasses, maybe it is eating zombies as its own food. In that case, why is there so much rotten flesh on this floor? Could it be that the monster is still fussy about what it eats?
Even if it is picky at the beginning, eventually there will be fewer zombies as less food would enter the building due to its reputation. Is there any room for him to be picky? If the mutant beasts are to survive and evolve, they must eat, and this one here is bound to be no exception. Thinking about it this way, the smoky odor he’s smelling now seemed to be a little weird.
Li Weilan kept calm, covering his nose with one hand, and holding the handle of the knife tightly with the other, but he could no longer forcibly restrained the squirming of his throat like before and vomited.
Shen Cheng in front of the screen also saw this scene.
She froze for a moment, doubting herself. Didn’t she just see that the cub was better? The debuff was also gone, but why is he vomiting now?
She opened the tool bar and took a look. She found no issues whatsoever. The portable air purifier still has more than three hours of validity!
Is this item really so useless?
Stupid game, gimme back my money.
Shen Cheng almost jumped up. While complaining about the bug in the game, she poked Li Weilan’s face with her finger and sighed softly, “my cub’s life is so hard, so pitiful.”
At the moment, Li Weilan couldn’t bear it anymore and bent over to vomit. The huge pool of bloody mess on the ground suddenly become active as if it had self-consciousness, spliced together into a huge thorn flower, and spewed out green gases. Thank you for reading on hololonovels.com
Although he couldn’t smell the gas, Li Weilan’s face turned pale. He staggered two steps backwards, and suddenly fell down with a “pop”.
“!!!” My cub is such a little actor.
Seeing the series of fake movements of her own cub, Shen Cheng’s face was slightly twisted: I suddenly have a little pain in the knee!!!
The little ‘movie star’ fell down, and the ground of the second floor shook. Shen Cheng only saw it at this time, the whole second floor began to move slowly, revealing the monster’s huge body: it was a giant tree.
This giant tree has plethora of twisted branches, and the thorn flower, that Li Weilan saw just now, had grown significantly taller.
The speed of its growth was comparable to taking an elevator. Shen Cheng suspected her own cub was acting, but she had no idea what he wanted to do, so she just sat back and let the drama unfold. She was afraid that her actions would alarm the Tree Boss and find out that her cub was pretending.
Li Weilan’s head drooped, as if he was really dizzy, and he stopped moving.
A few minutes later, the thorn flower released its tentacles and threw him into a room.
“Teacher…” A young voice came from beside him, trembling.
“Another one,” said an old voice. “I don’t know how much more evil that thing has to do, alas,” he sighed deeply.
“Teacher, we can live another day…”
“Shut up!” The old man’s annoyed voice sounded, and he reprimanded the young man next to him, “We are all human beings, only rabbits and foxes hurt each other, how can you say that? Even if you can live a little longer now, when you finally have a chance to flee later, how could you be able to live with yourself!”
The young man stopped talking. Thank you for reading on hololonovels.com
Li Weilan listened carefully to the sounds outside, and then he opened his eyes, just in time to meet the shocked eyes of the young man.
“Teacher, teacher! He’s awake!”
Translator has something to say: I dropped this novel, but another translator from our site is picking it up yayyyyy. The only thing is that she’s pretty busy and also working on a bunch of other projects so, translations would be quite slow. Thank you for your understanding and patience 😀
