Dominion’s End Volume 6: The Unknown Elite

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我 (Yu Wo)


Chapter 9: Daddy, Gēge and Me—translated by Elkin & raylight (C/E edited by lucathia)

I was a little uneasy as I headed back into the forested hill behind the base. Although I had a feeling that Thirteen wasn’t very hostile to me, I still needed to keep my guard up against him. Even if he had zero hostility, we were food on each other’s menus. His evolution crystal was a terrific supplement for me, while my flesh and blood was like his ginseng.

The moment I entered the forest, I could sense a powerful aberrant nearby. It probably wasn’t Thirteen, based on its aberrant energy levels, so maybe it was Asura.

“Gēge!”

A little girl sprang out from the bushes and flew into my arms like a mini canonball, taking me by surprise. As I patted her head, I could sense Thirteen in the forest behind me. I could actually detect his faint presence, but it wasn’t until Beibei had dashed out that I could sense him, freaking me out completely.

I made sure to be as quiet as possible, silently making my way toward Shangguan Chenhong’s group. Fortunately, there was a mountain forest behind the base. I wouldn’t be easily detected when moving through the forest.

The enemy stopped in front of the back entrance before splitting into two groups. Shangguan Chenhong had four people standing by his side, while the rest spread out in a clear search for me.

Just how much do they underestimate my strength? Even if they didn’t go up the walls and see the frozen horned mice shish kebabs, shouldn’t they at least take me seriously for ambushing and killing fifty of their men?

Shangguan Chenhong probably thinks that I wasn’t alone in that night’s ambush. He even has a dozen fully armed elite soldiers under his command. Maybe that’s why he’s acting so carelessly… Hmm. If he didn’t encounter a tier three like me, perhaps it wouldn’t be careless of him. Having powerful firepower and energy guns, and a body strengthened from eating crystals, it’s more than enough to let him do whatever he wants in the early stages of the apocalypse.

At least, it’s sufficient enough until the arrival of the second Moment of Judgment.

After the second Judgment’s arrival, the aberrants’ strength increased. Although humans grew stronger, the aberrants gained a bigger leap in strength. The disparity between the strong and the weak became even larger. It was even more difficult for humans to survive.

After waking from a night of torture and agony, humans had to deal with even stronger aberrants. Supplies were getting scarce, and the winter was growing colder. Suicide rates peaked during the first few months after the third Moment of Judgment. The good-hearted ones would blow their head off while committing suicide, so as to avoid harming others after waking up and turning into an aberrant.

They killed themselves because all hope was gone, right?

Despite how harsh the apocalypse was, if there was some hope in staying alive, most humans would want to keep living. Not to mention my people, we’re definitely tough enough!

If people were given a little bit of hope…

I took a deep breath, not wanting to think about things so far into the future. Let’s deal with what’s right in front of us first. I tapped my chest with a finger, and let Xiaorong’s branches creep along the ground in that direction.

The enemy had more than ten people, and they were moving separately. If I wanted to fight it out, it wasn’t impossible to win as long as I played some tricks, but my aim was to take Shangguan Chenhong hostage and then “reason” with Zhu Yuanzhou. Killing more people would only deepen their grudge. That wouldn’t be good for anybody. We might as well use them to fight off the aberrants.

Let’s just have Xiaorong drag Shangguan Chenhong over. Once I’ve got him in my hands, the enemy would have no choice but to listen to us.

Chapter 7: This Time, Seize Control! Part Two—translated by Miaka Mei & lucathia (proofread by Minthe; C/E edited by lucathia)

Ceng Yunqian suddenly exclaimed in a strangled voice, “Captain Wen, you’re wrong. Shuyu is Leader’s precious little brother. If he wishes to stay in the mansion, the JDT can protect the mansion, so we don’t need you to stand up for us!”

Wen Jianuo’s lips twitched but he didn’t speak. The electric current had shocked him speechless—it seemed like Shujun’s lightning really was a nemesis to the metal ability.

Chen Yanqing jumped up and continued the story, “Even the youngest sister had come over to help out. How could a grown man just stay inside the mansion? Plus, Captain Wen only said something like ‘stay inside and grow some grass.’ Aren’t you guys overreacting too much?”

He actually made it make sense! I’ve really gotta hand it to these guys. It’s a shame that their budding careers in acting and screenwriting got cut short by the apocalypse.

Junjun gasped, finally noticing that something was amiss. She nervously glanced at me a few times, looking so embarrassed that I, this èrgē, immediately forgave my mèimei.

Originally, I had wanted to immediately discuss the tunnel-digging speed with Zheng Xing as soon as we stepped inside the mansion. But it was filled with people and instantly all their gazes pointed toward us. Their eyes were filled with earnest hope, as though I would declare something like “I’ve knocked out all the aberrants hahaha” with the air of an overlord.

As I was feeling awkward, Tai Wen strode up and asked, “Is the situation outside all right?”

Under everyone’s expectant looks, I could only steel myself and maintain a cool, blank face while replying in a commanding tone, “All of Jiang Dominion’s people, follow me upstairs. Tai Wen, you too.”

Tai Wen nodded and turned to tell Zhang Jing, “Keep everything here in order. Make sure not to let anyone irrelevant enter through the front. If you really cannot hold them back, give a warning shout.”

Zhang Jing nodded furiously.

I had expected the people outside to charge right in as soon as the front gates opened, like locusts swarming over a country uncontrollably. After all, that mass of people had always been of that kind of character. However, they were actually being held off by the soldiers’ gun barrels, and could only obediently follow behind the soldiers.

Seeing this, I was really left speechless. My older brother and Cain could also ruthlessly use guns to push people away, but they really weren’t too interested in managing the people. Although they’d use martial law to quell any disturbances, they wouldn’t be bothered to manage them afterward. That said, not having enough time to manage people was probably also a factor. After all, the Jiang Dominion’s manpower was truly too pitiful.

After this, I’ll have to advise Dàgē to find some people to specially handle things like this—wait, isn’t Tai Wen a nicely fitting candidate for this?

The people their group had been leading were just so good. It couldn’t have been just because of Guan Weijun’s mighty fists, and looking back on the past few days, Tai Wen’s contributions couldn’t have been insignificant. This was the talent of managing people. In addition, he had a unique and useful ability. Letting go of such a talented person absolutely couldn’t happen; as soon as I went back, I’d have to raise the issue with Dàgē.

That is, assuming we survive this…
