I was obediently tagging along with Scar and his troops, moving at a quick pace. Three kilometers didn’t sound like a huge distance, but compared to moving alone, it was a lot more difficult for a group of humans to be traveling in Lan City. After all, the bigger the target, the harder it was to hide. A whole slab would always be more appetizing than a morsel of meat.

Just like how the humans worked together to go to hypermarkets and warehouses, the aberrants would also team up to attack the humans’ base. But the vast diversity of aberrants and their mercurial temperaments meant it was hard for them to keep working together for long. It was a common occurrence for them to devour their own group or each other after they had polished off the humans.

It was probably because of this that humans were able to persevere until the later stages of the apocalypse. Otherwise, considering how tenacious aberrants were, how many humans would have been able to survive the initial stages of the apocalypse?

No matter how powerful Thunder God Jin Zhan or Ice Emperor Jiang Shutian was, without knowledge from their past lives, one of them would have ended up holing himself up in Zhongguan City, while the other would have lost his whole troop just for the sake of returning home.

“Faster!”

As the leader of the group, Scar, continuously urged us on, I hurriedly increased my pace. These guys were moving pretty fast. Although their skills couldn’t be compared to the members of JDT, they had far surpassed an average person. Leaving that aside, we hadn’t encountered many aberrants along the way. Could it be that the Jin family has already cleared the perimeters up to three kilometers?

“How long have you guys been staying in Lan City?”

I walked out of the room. Just as I was finishing wolfing down the crystals from the red envelope, Feng had handed me a few more. Lying in bed could speed up my recovery even more, but my decision to stay for one more day wasn’t so that I could sleep.

Glancing toward the elevator, I happened to meet Ben’s dead-fish eyes. His arms were crossed over his chest as he leaned against the wall, and he had a face that said “I’m not surprised to see you again.”

Being caught in the act, I scrambled for an explanation. “I got tired of lying in bed, so I’m going out for a walk, not to run off!”

Ben’s dead-fish eyes became even more lifeless. Entirely unconvinced, he said, “You were only in bed for two hours. The doc said that you’re seriously injured and need to rest for at least five to six days.”

I explained, “I’m fine after eating the crystals. This isn’t like before the apocalypse!”

“Our doc has looked after a whole bunch of people these past six months. He factored in the effects of the crystals.”

Ugh. I bit the bullet and continued, “The crystals in the red envelopes were humongous. After eating them and sleeping for two hours, I feel much better.”

Facing the brother-in-law whose leg I had personally broken, I was so nervous that my hands were fidgeting. Fortunately, Jin Zhan only shot me a glance, seemingly not interested at all, and continued eating. On the other hand, the two women at the side were filled with enthusiasm and kept on staring at me.

“Is this Xiao Yu?” One of the women, who seemed older in age, said warmly. “Come, have a seat. There’s no need to be shy, we’re all family after all.”

And just like that we became family! I inwardly chuckled. The Thunder God and Ice Emperor are one family? The whole human race is going to celebrate!

Jin Feng pulled me down to sit, and right away ordered someone to serve me a bowl of rice. I held the bowl of rice with shaking hands. I had just broken the Thunder God’s leg, and now with all these black-clothed men in the dining hall staring at me, all of my hairs were standing on end. I feel like I’m gonna get hacked apart with knives from every direction at any moment!

Jin Feng gestured at the woman seated at the round-table and introduced her. “This is my lil’ mom. You can just call her ‘Lil’ Mom.’”

Lil’ Mom? Her form of address sounds a bit odd. I looked at the person called “Lil’ Mom.” She was a woman who didn’t look like a mother at all. She was wearing a light green blouse and white long skirt. She had a slim figure and a refined and beautiful appearance, looking very much like a girl from a wealthy family. I couldn’t exactly tell how old she was, but she couldn’t possibly be Jin Feng’s mom. Considering her “Lil’ Mom” nickname, she was obviously the stepmother!

Jin Feng smiled. “Lil’ Mom is very young, but you still gotta call her ‘Lil’ Mom.’”

I was squatting in a triangular shadow beneath the escalator. My whole body was covered with smelly blood. This was the result from just now when I’d dashed into a large hall that was covered with fresh blood and rotting flesh. The hellish place was actually heaven to me as I had immediately rolled around on the floor.

And just like that, the Yggdrasil Earthworm slithered back and forth on the streets for a while before reluctantly leaving.

Having been relentlessly pursued, I had attempted to strike back from time to time, but there were just too many factors—the heads were dreadfully fast, and they numbered too many. They were pretty much unavoidable. If the heads hadn’t been slowed down by its enormous body, I would have already been swallowed into its stomach.

However, that Yggdrasil Earthworm was still very fast despite being slowed down. It moved much like a snake would, though I really had no idea what it had transmuted from. I had never heard stories of this kind of thing in my past life either.

“Shuyu, where you goin’?”

Cain faintly called out from behind me, but I simply couldn’t pay attention to anyone else. I was rushing at full speed, my mind filled with only thoughts of Shujun getting in all kinds of crises. She might be wounded, bleeding, or even…

I sprinted, ignoring the small voice at the back of my mind warning me that I should remain because there were hardly any JDT members left at the base, and that Dàgē was with Shujun—but then, why was she throwing so many lightning bolts?

Although I’d always said that Shujun’s ability was frighteningly powerful, her strength was in her fine manipulation of her power. If I had to honestly gauge her power, she wasn’t weak but she wasn’t that much stronger than the other JDT members either, particularly after their pace of improvement skyrocketed after they truly understood the strength and importance of special powers.

Shujun would have to go all-out to produce such a large cluster of lightning. She wouldn’t have done such a thing if she hadn’t truly been in danger, because I had warned her over and over again to exert the barest minimum amount of energy to defeat the enemy. You’ll never know what kind of aberrant you’ll meet around the corner of the next street. One must never exhaust one’s energy unless absolutely necessary.
