Chapter 8: The Three-Forked Road, Part One—translated by Elkin & Raylight (proofread by Arcedemius & Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)
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.
