Chapter 10: Zhanjiang Garrison—translated by Simone (proofread by Arcedemius & Lala Su; C/E edited by lucathia)
The light should have faded, but my eyes still hadn’t adapted and I couldn’t see clearly. I saw only silhouettes of people standing in a white haze.
I was beside myself with panic. If Junjun hadn’t been by my side, I would have rushed forward right away, but now, even calling out was out of the question. Everyone was blinded and any small movement could incite an attack.
“Nobody move!” Dàgē yelled, releasing his power at the same time. His power felt very different from mine. While my power froze people to the bone, Dàgē’s power made people too scared to move, as if a single movement would turn them to dust. It was very useful, especially in times like this. As long as nobody moved or opened fire, it should prevent a chain reaction. If a fight broke out, we wouldn’t be able to figure out how it started even by the time both sides got completely wiped out.
“Who the hell fired?” Tang Liang snarled. “If your hand slipped, just say so, and I won’t kill you. But if I have to find out who’s missing a bullet, I will personally shoot you!”
Two shots were fired in succession, yet you still dare to say it was a slip of the hand. Not only is Tang Liang’s appearance oafish, he’s quite capable of making shit up as well.
