It’s much easier to chase them on my motorcycle. Jiang Xiaotian thinks I’ve wasted time, but Thirteen hasn’t gone all that quickly. It’s probably because Asura and Maternibaby are both injured.

I searched for hours. The track was now faint, since there was no more blood. Night fell and I had to slow down. I spotted a light in the forest.

I hesitated and stopped my bike. Aberrants shouldn’t know how to start a fire yet. They’re not afraid of fire, but they don’t need it either. It should still be humans. They’re afraid of the cold.

“Is it them?” I turned to ask Jiang Xiaotian.

“Hard to say. Thirteen has a habit of keeping humans. Weird. It’s not surprising if he has people who know how to start a fire with him.”

I put my bike to the side and went over, grabbed Xiaotian, and entered the forest.

Yeah, I can just push it all onto Jiang Xiaotian. In any case, there was something off about him, so it would be wrong if he didn’t have some awe-inspiring ability.

All the soldiers looked at the little kid, while the kid himself was glowering, with torrents of icy air pouring off his body. If we didn’t pursue Thirteen right this moment, the little kid would probably chase after him himself.

“You can help us first, then we’ll help you kill that aberrant later.” Ah Nuo seemed pretty desperate. It was clear that if he had the choice, he definitely wouldn’t beg an eighteen-year-old and a three-year-old kid for help.

I was certain I could just turn and leave, despite the soldiers’ unwillingness to let us go. I highly doubted that they would pull anything on us, but I didn’t want to treat them that way. They were acting for the good of the refugees; otherwise, they could just pack up their firearms and food and simply leave, instead of fretting over the problem of whether the refugees would die or not.

I said slowly and clearly, “Actually, my family’s in the east. My dàgē leads a troop of mercenaries and we’ve got firepower and supplies. My mèimei is tormenting herself like she’s gone mad, because she thinks I’m dead. So honestly? I really want to go eastwards. I really fucking do.”

Weary and wounded, we made our way back up to the refugee camp in single file. Along the way, we even encountered Wu Yaojin. The moment we ran into him, every soldier rushed at him, thirsting for blood and vengeance. As for me, I didn’t feel it necessary to stop them.

Everyone had dark expressions on their faces after we did a count just now. The number of survivors after all the deaths and injuries had been whittled down to just under a third. The greatest shock was the deaths of the Lieutenant and Guo Hong. Their lives were lost in the aberrant ambush led by Asura and not even their corpses were spared. Given the circumstances, could you really blame the soldiers for wanting to rip apart the researchers?

“If you kill me, you’re going to run into trouble two days down the line,” Wu Yaojin analyzed the situation extremely calmly despite the fact that his life was in danger. “In the past, we relied on Maternibaby to keep the aberrants from the refugee camp. But now that it’s not around anymore…”

He had actually adopted the term “aberrant.” With that, this new vocabulary might become commonplace even faster.

Ah Nuo’s face immediately darkened and he asked gravely, “So those monsters are gonna come?”

Wu Yaojin nodded.

Chapter 6: The Control Room—translated by Elkin (proofread by Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)

Bang bang bang!

I pushed the muzzle away with a hand. My devoted servant really did fire on me—if I had been just the slightest bit slower, the bullets would have lodged themselves in my brain, not even giving me the chance to turn into an aberrant!

Almost dying in the most random manner pissed me off to no end. I threw a punch at him, then started slapping his face non-stop!

Blackie originally moved to stop me, but when he saw that I was just slapping him, he fell into an awkward silence.

After a dozen consecutive slaps, I finally stopped when I’d slapped the wits out of him. I raged, “Wake up, Chen Yanqing! You bastard! How the hell are you gonna make it up to me if you damage this precious face of mine?!”

In that moment, everyone turned their eyes onto the “precious face.”

Chen Yanqing was also staring at the “precious face” in a daze. Suddenly, he snapped out of it and shouted, “Xiao Yu? Why are you here? Did you get caught?”

I immediately grabbed his head in one hand, hauled him up, and even started radiating icy energies. I growled, “‘Caught,’ my ass! Is this cold enough to wake you up?!”

Then, I threw Chen Yanqing onto the floor. He spat out one mouthful of ice, then another, wiped his face, and said, “I feel like I’m still dreaming.”

That was what he was saying, but he looked fully awake.
