“Disintegration is a lot simpler than reconstruction. I can make a tree trunk disappear with a wave of my hand, but reconstructing it on the other hand takes a long time and is a lot more difficult. Reconstructing this tree trunk is pretty much my daily limit, and I can only do it because the tree’s composition is fairly simple. The more complicated something is, the harder it is to reconstruct.”

At that point, Dàgē sighed with some dissatisfaction, “I still need to train more.”

You might as well train to destroy the world with a wave of your hand, then!

As expected of someone who would have originally become the Ice Emperor. Your natural talent is enough to make us little mortals want to just bash our heads against a brick of ice and kill ourselves! I hovered between life and death, almost dying several times just to get to tier two. Faced with Dàgē’s power, I really want to kneel down and shout, “Long live the Emperor. Long live His Majesty!”

“But it’s not that there are no limits to disintegration. I tested it on an aberrant and found that dead things are easier to disintegrate than living things. The disparity is still pretty big, and I’m not sure of why.”

I thought a bit and said, “It’s most likely because the energy inside the aberrant is blocking your disintegration. I once heard a theory about how all special abilities are just a way of using energy, just that every individual uses it differently to create different powers. That’s why it doesn’t matter what kind of ability it is—a tier one being will never be able to beat a tier five being.”

“Chen Qianru died.”

I was stumped for a moment. It’s not that big of a deal, but then again, how did she even get endangered? Chen Qianru couldn’t fight, and she hadn’t even discovered her power. Logically speaking, she should have been in the safest place, where she was unlikely to meet any kind of danger.

Though now that I thought about it, wasn’t I the one who had stayed home back then, and yet still got kidnapped by the bird? In the apocalypse anything could happen. An abnormal mouse might have bitten her life away.

Junjun explained what happened to those college students in further detail.

“I told Su Ying to hide in her room and avoid coming out, so as to prevent Dàgē killing her as well. The same with Ding Jun. Everyone told him to try staying out of Dàgē’s sight.”

What? Don’t tell me that this means that Chen Qianru died under Dàgē’s hands?

What the hell happened here? I really don’t understand. Although Dàgē is not the type that would be lenient toward a pretty girl, he is definitely not the type that would kill for no reason, let alone a woman who didn’t even have the strength to truss up a chicken. He still tolerated woman just a bit more than men.

“Why would Dàgē want to obliterate those college students?” I couldn’t understand even after pondering over this for the nth time. Asking would be much faster.

“Boss, just a bit further and we’ll arrive.”

Lily turned her head, revealing an ugly, centipede-like scar across her face, a sigh-worthy sight.

Jiang Shutian indifferently said, “You guys station yourselves here. I’ll go in by myself.”

Upon hearing his words, Lily felt a bit uneasy. For these past years, Jiang Shutian had risked everything just to return to the Jiang family. It was not long ago that they had lost Xiao Sha. The mercenary troop didn’t have that many people left—those that were left weren’t even senior-ranked members.

It could be said that the whole mercenary troop had almost been annihilated just for the sake of coming back to this place. If they had chosen to remain stationed where they had started, they definitely wouldn’t have been like this today.

Under these circumstances, how could Jiang Shutian bear to greet failure? But in reality, they all knew that failure was just around the corner. It was just that he himself, from the very beginning, had been unwilling to face it.

“Let me come with you.”

When I regained consciousness, it was because I was starving.

My stomach growled a whole symphony. I struggled to sit up. The entire room spun. I touched my chest; it didn’t hurt. My injuries should be healed. This dizziness is completely caused by hunger.

Sitting up, my feet brushed against a sapling. Jiang Xiaorong had been placed beside the bed. He didn’t react at all. I bet he’s sleeping? Is there such a thing as plants needing sleep? I really don’t know. However, Xiaorong can walk, shiver, and eat aberrants. Sleeping wouldn’t be abnormal at all.

Slowly, I got out of bed, wanting to call Shujun over to make something for her almost-starved-to-death èrgē. Just when I gripped the doorknob, I heard voices outside and stopped immediately.

“How’s your èrgē doing? Has, has he been…”

This was Dàgē’s voice, hurried and miserable. He didn’t even finish. Have I been what?

“I checked while I helped wipe Èrgē down.” Shujun said quietly, “There was no visible trace. But if it’s been too long, it can also be undetectable.”

Wait a minute, when you helped wipe me down, you did what to me? Why do I have a very bad feeling about this?!

“Is that so?” Dàgē said in a calm voice. It was only a few short words, but they carried deep grief and remorse. This manner of speaking was too much like the Ice Emperor. My chest suddenly felt tight. Not wanting to continue listening to them speaking in such a way anymore, I pulled open the door. The two of them even jumped in surprise. This kind of remorseful and unsettling appearance made me both angry and amused.
