God and Devil World / God and Devil World Chapter 735
Yue Zhong got down near the edge of the staircase, quietly observing the tunnel and waited for 5 seconds. Within these 5 seconds, no other Mutants had leaped out from the hole.
He took a deep breath, his eyes flashing with a strange glint as he operated his Shadow Steps. At the same time, he sent a small stone flying towards the entrance of the building.
The moment the clear sound rang out, the gazes of the 8 Mutants swiveled towards the source of the sound.
Taking advantage of that second of distraction, Yue Zhong flashed and he leaped through the tunnel in a single breath.
Within that tunnel that was covered entirely in moss, Yue Zhong could smell a foul, rotting stench.
After he leaped through, he quickly darted deeper with all his might, his speed like a specter.
Passing through the long tunnel, Yue Zhong came across a huge underground city.
The underground city was more vast than any that Yue Zhong had come across, with countless modern buildings that were about dozens of meters tall. Other than them, there were residential buildings, hotels, schools, hospitals and other buildings. However, they were all rundown.
There was not a single source of light within, if it weren’t for Yue Zhong’s Night Vision ability, he might not be able to see anything.
Yue Zhong had just appeared in the underground city when he saw dozens of Mutants gathered together, led by a Type 3 Mutant with a horn as they came towards his direction.
He quickly shot towards a building by the side.
At this time, a Type 3 Mutant came out from the building, appearing in front of Yue Zhong without warning.
Yue Zhong was already poised for combat, the moment the Type 3 Mutant appeared, the Flame Blade in his hands slashed towards the body of the Type 3 Mutant, instantly slicing him in half, fresh blood spraying everywhere.
Unfortunately, the Type 3 Mutant was pretty resilient, even after being sliced in half, it didn’t die immediately, and used its upper half to let out a wretched shriek.
“Damn it!!” Yue Zhong quickly slashed the head in two, before grabbing the horn.
With the death of the Type 3 Mutant, the Life Energy was absorbed through the imprint, enhancing Yue Zhong.
“Congratulations, you have gained +10 in Endurance.”
A warmth surged through his body, as the notification resounded in his mind.
Yue Zhong took a deep breath, activating his Shadow Steps again, pushing his speed to the maximum, and quickly charged towards the direction with the imprint was guiding him.
The scream of the Type 3 Mutant had attracted attention, as countless Mutants swarmed out like ants towards this direction.
Yue Zhong had just gotten to 300 meters when there was the sound of glass shattering, and dozens of Mutants leaped out, pouncing at him.
His eyes flashed, and he pulled out his 2m-long Black Tooth Blade, swinging out once, immediately turning the dozens of Mutants into sliced up chunks of meat.
As he stopped, his advance was slowed, as more Mutants appeared. At the same time, there were 4 Type 3 Mutants making their way over.
Once they reached, Yue Zhong would surely die under their hands.
At this critical juncture, a void appeared out of nowhere, as a bright flash appeared, turning into a bone carapace around Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong fired out 2 bone spikes from his feet, propelling him towards a building over 40m-tall.
When he leaped up, he quickly retracted the bone spikes.
One particular Type 3 Mutant saw this and quickly dashed towards Yue Zhong’s original location, reaching out with his hands to grab onto the retracting bone spikes.
At the same time, Yue Zhong flipped his hands, the Electromagnetic Gun appearing. He aimed down and fired, sending a bright beam through the head of the Type 3 Mutant at his heels, blasting his head and brain apart.
Life energy streamed through the Imprint, entering Yue Zhong’s body again. However, this time, there was no notification of any enhancements.
With the death of that Type 3 Mutant, the dozens of Type 3 Mutants around quickly converged on this location. 3 of the Type 3 Mutants closest to Yue Zhong quickly leaped onto the building, climbing upwards swiftly.
This underground city was the base of these Mutants, although most of them had followed the Type 4 Mutants out to hunt the Saint Clan experts, there were still a number of powerful Type 3 Mutants that stayed behind.
Yue Zhong watched the Type 3 Mutants converging around him, his face impassive as he turned around and leaped towards another building.
Halfway in the air, his Dark Wind Wings appeared, blowing a huge gust of wind that sent him soaring in the sky at the speed of sound.
Below, the numerous Mutants gazed up and unleashed sharp, shrill shrieks at him helplessly.
A number of fireballs, bone spikes, ice picks and poison arrows all fired at him from below However, most just brushed past his shadows.
Against flying bodies that could travel at the speed of sound, such attacks were seldom accurate. Furthermore, most of them were from the ordinary Mutants, which could not compare to Type 3 Mutants.
Just as he was soaring through the air, a number of sharp howls began to emit from below.
Dozens of Mutants with wings began to soar into the sky, chasing after Yue Zhong. Among these Mutants, such entities capable of flight were rare, but there were some. At the same time, only Mutants of Type 2 and above could use their wings to fly.
However, the fastest among them could barely reach the speed of sound, which meant they could not catch up with him, only eating the dirt.
“Is that it?”
Yue Zhong continued to fly towards the direction where the mysterious force was pulling him to. After flying for over a 100 kilometers, he finally saw a huge clearing, that had a huge research lab built on it.
His heart rejoicing, Yue Zhong shot downwards, landing beside the entrance.
The entrance had long been destroyed, and he quickly charged in.
Soon after, 6 of the winged Type 3 Mutants came to the entrance. They patrolled around it, but their faces carried traces of fear, not daring to get near.
Within the lab, there were many machines and transparent glass tubes, other than a few broken ones, the rest of the lab seemed undamaged. It was just due to the passage of time, that a layer of dust and rust had accumulated on these machines.
Yue Zhong swept his gaze across the lap, suppressing the urge to search the lap as he continued to rush towards the direction which the imprint was tugging him towards.
Inside the lab, if he were to search carefully, he was sure to come across something useful. However, he wanted to obtain whatever was calling out to him and quickly get the hell out of here.
After passing through a few corridors, he finally came into a huge hall.
The moment he entered the hall, his face fell and he quickly retreated a few steps, his gaze fixed at one particular corner.
Inside that hall, there were all sorts of advanced machines and equipment, and at the center of those countless electronic instruments, there was a huge sphere of about 1m. 20 meters to the right of that strange machine, stood a 2m-tall Mutant with a huge, red horn on his forehead. He had a head of silver hair, his looks incredibly handsome, and he had a pair of blue eyes that seemed capable of stealing anyone’s soul should they stare too long. His back had a pair of silver and gold wings, and a long, silver tail grew out of his back. He was standing inside a transparent glass tube, staring and smiling at Yue Zhong.
“Fuck!! This guy is strong!! Shit, there’s such a dangerous person here, why didn’t he go up?” Every single cell in Yue Zhong’s body was screaming at him to get out. Just by looking at the Mutant, he could feel tremendous pressure, as though the other party could kill him with a glare. His back broke out in cold sweat, that threaten to drench his entire shirt.
Even if he were to face a Type 4 Mutant, Yue Zhong was confident he could at least withstand a single blow. However, his Danger Perception was telling him that this other party was someone way above his level.
“Hello there, friend who possesses the God and Devil Imprint! My name is Radis! I’m pleased to meet you here! Don’t be afraid, I was like you, over a hundred years ago, a human that had the Imprint! What’s your name?” The Mutant laughed gently, reaching out with his right hand, as the layer of silver skin receded, revealing a God and Devil Imprint on his arm. However, it was extremely faded and bleak, as though it was just a mass of grey lines.
Yue Zhong saw that Radis had no intention to kill him, and relaxed as he let out a breath of relief, “Hey, I’m Yue Zhong.”
