Chapter 12: Monster (1)
The woman thought for a while and added: “Put a surveillance robot at your position.”
The sunglasses man hesitated: “These things are very expensive; we only have a limited amount on our hands”
The woman insisted: “Put one on him, he’s worth this much”
“Very well, as you wish, Your Highness.”
The sunglasses man shook his head, carefully took out a small silver box, gently placing it on a secret spot atop of the building.
As soon as the small box was put down, it immediately became hidden.
The sunglasses man shrugged and took out a Micro Holo-Brain: “Come, show me the staff information of Chang Ning Steel Mech Technology Company”
Countless personal information started showing on the Holo-brain one by one, the sunglasses man clicked on one of the avatars that appeared.
A young and handsome face, showing a unique vitality of youth.
“Yes, that’s him.”
The sunglasses man’s hands quickly tapped on the keyboard, showing a progress bar on the screen.
The Micro Holo-Brain began to read Gu Qing Shan’s personal data.
The sunglasses man raised his hand to look at his watch, mockingly complained: “15 seconds to track me, what a garbage security system, Chang Ning’s Su family really don’t care for its employees.”
After only 7 seconds, the sunglasses man got the information he needed and decisively shut down the intrusion system.
He continuously clicked on Gu Qing Shan’s personal data, quickly singled out his unique biological bands and vital signs.
“Gu Qing Shan, you can’t run away now”
The sunglasses man smiled and entered Gu Qing Shan’s information into the surveillance robot.
That evening, Gu Qing Shan ended a day of research, had dinner and took a walk in the company’s artificial main stadium.
Looking up at the sky, the shroud of night is already descending, the moon is hanging high, and the stars are shining like diamonds.
Breezy and cool, a great evening.
Gu Qing Shan silently squinted, his Dantian’s spirit energy moved, covering his eyes in an instant.
The scenery before his eyes suddenly changed, streaks of dark gray smoke floating in the sky, smooth as satin, silently sweeping close.
Gu Qing Shan frowned.
These dark gray smoke are the essence of Huang Quan, the signs of the Apocalypse have already appeared.
“Less than a year left” Gu Qing Shan muttered.
He quickened his steps and returned to the personal room arranged by the company.
Since his return yesterday night, it should already be a day, it’s time to enter the other world again.
Gu Qing Shan called out the game interface and looked at the time on the hourglass.
Right as the last bit of sand fell.
A curtain of light flashed, Gu Qing Shan disappeared from the room.
Gu Qing Shan was standing under the roof, seeming to have only left for a single moment, once again came back to this other world.
Outside the outpost, the demon beast’s body was still lying there, the arrow wounds all over his body leaking blood.
Gu Qing Shan found himself still holding the bow forward, kneeling on one knee, facing the military camp gate to shoot.
It’s like he never left at all.
Gu Qing Shan stood up and shouted: “Zhao Lu!”
There was no movement, and no one responded.
Gu Qing Shan reluctantly said again: “Zhao Lu, it’s over, come out!”
Quite a while later, Zhao Lu still shaking, finally came behind Gu Qing Shan.
He poked his head from behind Gu Qing Shan’s shoulder and looked out.
“Is, is it dead?”
“Already dead, come, come help me bring it in”
Zhao Lu looked at the monster, and then looked at Gu Qing Shan, and said: “Brother Gu, I didn’t know you were so strong”
Gu Qing Shan answered: “Less nonsense, more work. Get the tools, we’re bringing the demon beast back to the military camp”
Zhao Lu seemingly a bit more courageous, looked at the monster again and said happily: “Motherfucker, this big one is enough for us to eat for a month.”
Gu Qing Shan nodded, his heart a bit more settled.
Demon beast meat contains ample blood energy, even an ordinary person who eats it will be able to strengthen the bones and muscles, increasing strength.
His wounds were only healed with two Healing pills, as soon as he returned to Reality, he fought two battles in a row. The second one was even against a Martial Master, almost completely exhausting all his mental power and strength.
At this moment, Gu Qing Shan can detect the faint pain in his body.
The wounds that just healed, once again showing signs of reopening.
In this situation, if you can keep eating demon beast meat and rest for a while, it will benefit the body greatly.
Zhao Lu quickly ran into the kitchen and taking out a large net bag, long rope, boning knife and other tools.
The two were ready to go outside the outpost.
Gu Qing Shan asked while walking: “Why didn’t you bury the dead people in front of the camp? In the end, they were all comrades”
Zhao Liu complained: “Before, the Commander simply didn’t care, what can a cook like me do? If I left the outpost alone to dig, if I happen to run into some sort of monster, I’ll die for sure”
Gu Qing Shan patted him on the shoulder and said: “When the monster is brought in, go with me to bury the dead.”
Zhao Lu hesitated, not saying anything.
Gu Qing Shan said again: “The putrid smell of blood from the dead pit is too strong. If it attracts a powerful demon that can see through the Invisibility formation of the outpost, you and I both will end up dead”
“That is,— fine!”
Zhao Lu thought about the scene, finally gritted his teeth and answered.
The two walked to the gate of the military camp, Zhao Lu already half a step out of the outpost, but suddenly, Gu Qing Shan pulled his collar back, which made almost him fall down face-first.
Zhao Liu annoyed: “Brother Gu, what are you doing?”
Gu Qing Shan raised his hand and made a gesture of silence.
Zhao Lu still wanted to complain, but seeing Gu Qing Shan’s face full of seriousness, his heart sank and didn’t say anything more.
He stood up and lowered his voice and asked, “What happened?”
Gu Qing Shan pointed to the otter outside the camp.
After several days of heavy rain, a disc-sized puddle was formed on the ground.
Right now, the rain suddenly stopped, but the ripples on the puddles continued, as if something was disturbing it from underneath.
Gu Qing Shan pulled Zhao Lu and retreated 7-8 steps backwards.
It’s still silent outside the outpost.
After a few more moments, the water in the puddle returned to calm.
Zhao Lu held his breath and waited for a long time without seeing any movements. Right then, he breathed a sigh of relief, smiled wanting to speak.
But he didn’t say anything.
Because Gu Qing Shan covered his mouth, immediately retreated a few dozens more meters, stopping all the way back at the other end of the outpost
Gu Qing Shan pressed him into the mud, himself also laid down and smeared black mud all over his body.
A few days of rain have already softened the soil, Gu Qing Shan only need to grab to get a handful, while smearing it over himself, he also gestured to Zhao Lu to do the same.
Although Zhao Lu is a kitchen staff, many daily chores are done by him alone, but after all, he has not been through this kind of suffering, so he can’t help but want to stand up.
He arched his back to stand up, but suddenly fell down in the black mud again – this time his whole body was covered with muddy water, no need to be smeared on anymore.
Zhao Lu planted his hands on the ground, only to feel the ground shaking, he himself cannot do anything, not even stand up.
The earth is shaking violently.
Zhao Lu’s horrified, opened his mouth to scream only to once again fall into the mud.
Is the earth dragon turning over?
Zhao Lu looked at Gu Qing Shan full of questions, but he only saw him looking at the direction of the dead pit, still fully concentrating.
Zhao Lu followed Gu Qing Shan’s gaze only to see an unforgettable scene.
A giant foot so big it fills his entire line of sight, and is several times larger than the entire military outpost.
As this foot stepped on a dense forest outside the outpost, all the trees were razed to the ground.
Looking up the foot, the thick leg extends deep into the dark clouds, his eyes unable to see the end.
Zhao Lu is stunned looking at this scene. Only then did he understand that there was no earth dragon to turn its body, it was simply this foot stepping on the ground, and the impact caused the earth to shake.
Then, an even more insane scene unfolds.
-Huang Quan: literally “golden river”, the equivalent of River Styx in Chinese mythology. It’s more commonly used to refer to hell itself, rather than the actual river in hell which have a different name.
