Dominion’s End Volume 5: Zhanjiang Garrison
Original novel in Chinese by: 御我 (Yu Wo)
Chapter 8: Whose Powerful Troop Is This—translated by Miaka_Mei (proofread by Arcedemius & EvlNabiki; C/E edited by Elkin, Simone & lucathia)
I was obediently tagging along with Scar and his troops, moving at a quick pace. Three kilometers didn’t sound like a huge distance, but compared to moving alone, it was a lot more difficult for a group of humans to be traveling in Lan City. After all, the bigger the target, the harder it was to hide. A whole slab would always be more appetizing than a morsel of meat.
Just like how the humans worked together to go to hypermarkets and warehouses, the aberrants would also team up to attack the humans’ base. But the vast diversity of aberrants and their mercurial temperaments meant it was hard for them to keep working together for long. It was a common occurrence for them to devour their own group or each other after they had polished off the humans.
It was probably because of this that humans were able to persevere until the later stages of the apocalypse. Otherwise, considering how tenacious aberrants were, how many humans would have been able to survive the initial stages of the apocalypse?
No matter how powerful Thunder God Jin Zhan or Ice Emperor Jiang Shutian was, without knowledge from their past lives, one of them would have ended up holing himself up in Zhongguan City, while the other would have lost his whole troop just for the sake of returning home.
As the leader of the group, Scar, continuously urged us on, I hurriedly increased my pace. These guys were moving pretty fast. Although their skills couldn’t be compared to the members of JDT, they had far surpassed an average person. Leaving that aside, we hadn’t encountered many aberrants along the way. Could it be that the Jin family has already cleared the perimeters up to three kilometers?
“How long have you guys been staying in Lan City?”
