Wei Mingyun…

Wei Xiaogē!

I popped up from the bed, in disbelief that I had slept so soundly in the apocalypse. If an aberrant were nearby, I wouldn’t even have known how I’d died—wait, this is my room. Jiang Shuyu’s room.

After looking around and finding not even the slightest hint of danger, I sat sluggishly on the side of the bed and used both hands to hit my cheeks. With a loud “slap,” my chaotic feelings gradually began to calm down. Immediately afterwards, I began to carefully recall the past I had dreamed of.

It turned out that Wei Xiaogē had given his full name from the start. Only, everyone had called him Wei Xiaogē, and I had also followed suit. Sometimes, for the sake of teasing him, I would switch to calling him baby bro Wei—Wei Xiaodì.

However, Xia Zhengu had disliked Wei Xiaogē from the start. It was just that Wei Xiaogē was powerful, had joined the team for a long time, and hadn’t committed any big mistakes. If Xia Zhengu were to want to chase him away, who knows how many of the team would want to leave with Wei Xiaogē!

I hadn’t expected that the Ice Spears would be willing to follow me and mount a sneak attack on the enemy.

At first, I didn’t even dare to think about it, scared that these soldiers would think the Jiang Dominion was just using them as cannon fodder. I’d already been afraid that the moment they heard of the 400 enemies that they would want to flee. If I still ordered them to go out on a raid, most likely we wouldn’t need to wait until the enemy arrived, there’d be civil war here.

But Wen Jianuo suggested himself to come with me, and the other squad members agreed to come too.

These are the kinds of companions who live and die together. If we get through this crisis safely, I’ll definitely regard them as my own people, equal to the people of the Jiang Dominion—no, they will be a part of the Jiang Dominion themselves!

Now that I had secured more troops, it seemed I could come up with even bigger plans, rather than just going on my own to lie in wait and mount an ambush, counting just on my luck to see if I could kill a few enemies at night—especially when I usually don’t have any luck.

Even if the Ice Spears are prepared for it, I don’t want to lose even one of them. Such disciplined and determined soldiers are hard to come by; losing even one would be such a loss!

I dug a pit to bury the bodies of the five soldiers, deliberately burying them next to the roots of a large tree. Expressionless, I watched as the tree roots reached out and trapped the corpses. Only then did I finally cover them with dirt.

Although non-aberrant trees didn’t eat people, they did rely on nutrients from decaying organisms. I intentionally buried these corpses beneath the tree in the hope it would seize them and prevent aberrants from digging them up and eating them, which would increase their strength.

If these soldiers hadn’t died, would any of them have become strong ability users?

Don’t think about it!

I took a deep breath. Compared to these soldiers, I was much more convinced that strong ability users would turn up in the Jiang Dominion!

We absolutely can’t allow the Shangguan family to snatch away our base, and more importantly, we have to keep the number of casualties as low as possible. As long as we have the Zhanjiang Garrison, with its ideal location that is both easily defendable and hard to attack, and slowly advance on Lan City, kill aberrants, eat crystals, and expand our territories, the Jiang Dominion will become the strongest for sure!

“Xiaorong, help me tie these guns together.”

“Stop.”

I was the first to stop my motorcycle, indicating for the other two to stop as well. Yunqian was driving a cool, black motorcycle, while Xiao Sha’s was a cream-colored scooter. We hadn’t been able to find a lot of motorcycles with fuel left. The two had held a game of rock-paper-scissors, resulting in a crushing defeat for Xiao Sha.

Shujun sat behind me and craned her neck to ask curiously, “Èrgē, what’s wrong?”

“There might be some of those Shangguan troops ahead.”

I faintly sensed danger. It wasn’t piercing, the kind that was alarming enough to make you want to run and escape. It couldn’t be some dangerous aberrant. This path had been used for many of the Zhanjiang Garrison’s comings and goings, so it had been swept clean. Nothing left should register as a threat to me, which made it very likely to be the Shangguans’ army.

“We’re not far from the base.”

I could see from Yunqian’s expression that she was also concentrating.

I looked at Xiao Sha and asked, “You’re an expert at investigating. It shouldn’t be a problem to get close to those troops and have a look at the enemy’s situation, right?”

“No problem, I’ll go.”

Without hesitation, Xiao Sha abandoned the delicate, cream-colored scooter.

I blocked him and demanded, “Take me with you.”

Xiao Sha frowned. “You don’t have the relevant training. Our opponents are professional soldiers. There’s a very high chance they’ll discover us.”

“That’s why I’ll rely on you!” I confidently said, “I need to see if there are any people with powerful abilities, so I have to go.”

In any case, I’ve been able to stay hidden for ten years during the apocalypse. I might not be a master of stealth, but my hiding skills should count for something!

Xiao Sha still shook his head and said, “If we’re discovered, we won’t be able to escape. Their numbers are too high, and they’re armed.”

I laughed and said with even more confidence, “It might be difficult to defeat them, but escaping is definitely not a problem.”

Hearing this, Xiao Sha gave in.

“Èrgē, be careful.”

Shujun pulled on my sleeve and warned, “You’re not allowed to get injured again.”

I petted her head and said, “Don’t worry, I’m not planning on doing anything. We’ll leave after we’ve had a look.”

I did my best to ignore the suspicious look in Mèimei’s eyes, and said to Yunqian, “Hide somewhere with Shujun to wait for Xiao Sha and me to return. No matter what you notice approaching you while you wait, run immediately! If you’re really not able to escape, shoot some lightning into the sky and think of a way to stall for time. I’ll be coming as fast as I can.”

Pouting, Xiaomèi muttered, “I can also fight. I helped Dàgē a lot before.”

If she only needed to stand there and release lightning, while many powerful protectors stood in front of her, Shujun’s powers were definitely formidable, but if she had to confront armed and specialized combat professionals with only Yunqian beside her, that was a completely different matter!

“Listen to Èrgē.”

I briefly explained, “They have a lot of weapons. You have no way of dealing with them for now.”

Shujun nodded, looking scared as soon as I mentioned weapons.

Yunqian patted her own chest and pledged, “Don’t worry. I’ll hide well with Shujun. No one will notice us.”

Xiao Sha added, “Yunqian is a sniper. There’s no one better at finding a hideout than she is.”

Hearing these words, I could finally feel assured. It was great to have professional teammates. Even during the apocalypse, I could go outside with my treasured mèimei without the need to worry there’d be no one to protect her.

Time was running out, and I didn’t want to delay us any longer. After shouting “Let’s go!”, I led Xiao Sha in the direction of the place I had sensed something.

On the way, Xiao Sha couldn’t help but ask in a low voice, “I didn’t expect it to be this far. How do you know where the army is?”

Prologue: Murder your way forward—translated by Simone (proofread by Arcedemius & Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)

Just as night fell, a white fog spread. Visibility was less than three meters, but fortunately the ground was a smooth asphalt road. Otherwise these conditions would cause most people difficulty even with walking.

Footsteps could be heard not far away.

I hid in the grass beside the road without a sound. Although the trees on both sides of the road were scarce, after the end of the world, plants grew wildly, and weeds like this were found everywhere. Although they did not grow into a vast grassland, they turned the whole world into a ruin overgrown with weeds. With such bad visibility, spotting anyone in the underbrush was not easy at all.

However, even though my movements were absolutely silent, I still attracted the attention of my opponents. They were a total of five people in black camouflage clothes, armed to the teeth. They held guns and carried at least two or three pockets worth of ammunition.

Suddenly, one of them halted and turned his head to look in my direction. I bided my time, not worried in the least.

“What?” the person next to him asked. “What is it?”

The man frowned and said, “Just thought something moved over there. You didn’t sense anything?”

The other four shook their heads.

“It’s not that I don’t sense anything. There’s just too much going on,” one of them admitted. “I can sense something fishy in all directions.”
