Chapter 5: An Unexpected Encounter, Part One—translated by Translator
“We’ll split up for the rescue. Gather them up here, but only bring the quiet ones. Abandon them if there’s the slightest resistance.”
Xiao Sha nodded.
“The key point is don’t push yourself too hard. If there’s something amiss, prioritize your own safety first. If you really can’t get away, then call out my name, and I’ll figure something out. I mean it.”
I couldn’t resist giving out the order three times. I was worried that Xiao Sha didn’t want to implicate me, so much so that he wouldn’t even ask for help and end up sacrificing himself. If the sacrifice was worth it, then so be it. But I really didn’t want him to die in vain when I could have saved him, simply because of some pointless misgivings.
Xiao Sha readily agreed, without any sign of struggle or hesitation. He didn’t look like he would insist on not calling for help and taking on the burden alone.
Running out of time, I quickly instructed, “You’ll save the ones who were running to the left and right, lead them here and don’t go anywhere else. I’ll save the others.”
Only two people were running straight, the aberrants chasing after them were far greater in number, but a portion of the aberrants got distracted because the person climbing the house was unceasingly throwing stuff to lure away the aberrants, so that group of people hadn’t been captured yet. However, they were unlikely to last much longer.
The house-climbing guy seemed to be in the most danger. The aberrants who had chosen to climb up after him had quite the skills, but that guy was surprisingly strong. He could actually climb up one building after another, pulling himself up, then jumping up and over. He didn’t look particularly robust, and yet he had so much strength. He probably possessed a strengthened body related ability, or had already eaten evolution crystals… Someone is really gonna die if I keep wasting time thinking!
