My Doomsday Territory - Chapter 3
He could clearly feel that a force, like a clear spring, continuously poured into his body.
This is the spirit power that escaped after the death of those demonized beasts!
Absorbing and refining spirit power can make one stronger.
But only an awakened one can absorb spirit power! This is also the key for an awakened one to continue evolving and going beyond the realm of ordinary people.
However, Tang Yu knows his own situation. He has very poor qualifications, not to mention absorbing spirit power. Even the auxiliary awakening devices can’t help him awaken.
But at this time, he clearly felt that a force was pouring into his body and then converged somewhere.
If this wasn’t spirit power, then what was it?
Tang Yu decided to ask the system.
“Ttiring! The Lord’s qualifications are indeed quite low, belonging to E-Class. But after the system has been bound to the Lord, you have gained the ability to absorb and refine spirit power without the need for awakening…”
“Moreover, the puppet guards belong to the Lord as territorial units and cannot absorb spirit power on their own. As long as the Lord is within the range of the escaping spirit power, this spirit power will naturally be absorbed by the Lord.”
“In addition, the higher the level the territory becomes, the faster the lord will absorb and refine the spirit power.”
Tang Yu has also heard that if the demonized beast killed by an awakened one is too far away, they can’t absorb the spirit power.
Some people once thought that the use of powerful thermal weapons to kill demonized beasts would be cost-effective. Not to mention costs, even the spirit power could hardly be absorbed in the end. Over time, many awakened ones have become unwilling and don’t use these weapons unless necessary.
Tang Yu sat down with his knees crossed, closed his eyes and immersed himself his mind. In a trance, it was as if he was in a dark and closed off environment. There was only one mass of light in the centre, which was faintly shining.
This is the essence of spirit power!
Tang Yu suddenly understood this group of light was spirit power. It is composed of numerous tiny light particles, gathered together to form a group of light, sending out a surging source of power.
This is the first time he intuitively felt spirit power, and it is also the first time he was prepared to refine it.
There is no confusion in Tang Yu’s mind, like an inborn instinct, his consciousness controls the rotation and extrusion of this mass of spirit power.
A few light particles are separated from the mass of light and flew to the edge of this dark space. Slowly it melts into his torso and limbs before finally going into his five internal organs. In an instant, the body seemed to become more powerful.
Tang Yu seized this feeling and continued refining the spirit power. As he becomes more and more proficient with the process, his refining speed became faster and faster. With the light mass of spirit power gradually becoming smaller, it turned into tiny particles of light and was completely absorbed into every cell of his body.
A long time later, Tang Yu opened his eyes. Now his spirit is full, his eyes are bright and energetic, and his body becomes strong and powerful. With a small clench of his fists, he can feel the surging force passed along from the inside of his body to the palm of his hand. Even the scars on his arm are slowly healing at this time.
Tang Yu was surprised. No wonder he heard the first refinement of spirit power produced the best effect. At this time, it seemed really too good to be true. If he faces that demonized steel rat again, he is confident he can easily kill it.
After the crisis was over, Tang Yu finally has the time to take a good look at his newly built Lord’s Castle.
Looking from the outside, the Lord’s Castle isn’t big, just a little bigger than the previous villa and can only be regarded as a miniature castle. The outer wall is silvery white and has a dark blue spire roof. Everything looks picturesque, like it came from some fantasy.
There are two floors in the castle. The first floor is a complete hall and the second floor is the resting place for the Lord. It has a bedroom, study and bathroom. He can’t see the furniture for now, but he feels it’s also all of high quality.
Tang Yu soaked in a pool of water, which was bigger than his previous bedroom. The pool of water was full of fragrance and was so comfortable that he almost moaned.
After the doomsday, he has spent most of his time sleeping on the streets and occasionally living in simple wooden houses or makeshift tents. As a result, he suffered through the wind and rain.
These 100 source crystals are really well spent!
Besides, there are also two loyal puppet guards and a crystal ball suspended in mid-air. Making these 100 source crystals spent even more valuable!
Tang Yu summoned the crystal ball, which was the size of a basketball ball as it floated over of him.
The crystal ball is similar to a radar and can monitor and alert him if there are problems with the territory.
At this time, the territory is in its most primary state, so the scope is small. But it also includes the east and most of the west side of the villa area. However, any changes in these areas will be displayed on the crystal ball.
From this crystal ball, Tang Yu saw several red dots hidden on the eastern side. Thinking he hadn’t been discovered by the demonized beast as he travelled to this place gave him a burst of happiness. He was glad something didn’t go wrong along the way. Otherwise, the demonized beasts would’ve torn him to shreds.
Of course, it wasn’t just the crystal ball. When Tang Yu opened up the system panel, he found a map of the territory, on which he can also see red dots. However, the crystal ball shows a more detailed picture, even including the general terrain within the territory.
Tang Yu immediately got up, picked up his equipment, and set out with puppet No. 1. He wants to clean up the surrounding demonized beasts with puppet No. 1, while he leaves No. 2 in charge of guarding the castle.
“The last is to bring No. 1 to the rear.”
In front of his eyes is a rotten demonized wolf, with green eyes and rotten body. Strength aside, this scene is enough to cause people to shake in fear.
But Tang Yu won’t tremble. The demonized beasts he’s met today, whether strong or weak, couldn’t stop his first blow. So he puts aside his previous fears of demonized beasts.
After refining a sufficient amount of spirit power, Tang Yu had some fighting spirit on his face when facing demonized beasts. This is just another battle!
The rotten demonized wolf leaps high with its mouth agape as a gust of rotten wind blows in its face.
Tang Yu calmly held his dagger and was absorbed in focus. At the moment when the demonized wolf swoops close, his right foot slammed on the ground hard and passes sideways, with the dagger penetrating deeply into the rotten wolf’s internal organs.
He then spins around and continues wielding the dagger.
After a few stabs, the rotten demonized wolf, which had been injured and unable to move, was finally killed.
Another wave of spirit power is absorbed into his body.
Tang Yu gasped for breath. The whole engagement was no more than a minute. But the exertion of both his strength and stamina was great.
However, he felt a sense of accomplishment in the end.
The ordinary awakened ones will have a qualitative improvement in physical power at the moment of awakening. He didn’t go through this process, but through the refinement and absorption of spirit power, his physical quality is getting higher and higher. At this time, cutting down the rotten demonized wolf with his dagger also represents him reaching the standard of an ordinary awakened one.
Perhaps he has reached even higher.
Tang Yu looked at his dagger with a sharp blade in hand and slightly frowned. This dagger is relatively small and is inconvenient when used to deal with demonized beasts. Perhaps when he comes across a stronger demonized beast. He is afraid he will be unable to cut through the demonized beast’s hide with the dagger’s sharpness.
He needs a more effective weapon.
The sky was already slightly dark, and in the distant mountain and forests, the roar of demonized beasts rose one after another in the distance.
The outer area has gone beyond the detection range of the crystal ball, and Tang Yu doesn’t intend on continuing the cleanup. He will call it quits for today since he feels very tired. If not for his improvement in physical quality, he is afraid he will be tired and only left lying prone on the bed.
Tang Yu returned to the main hall with his spoils of war. No. 2 was still standing on the side, faithfully and dutifully guarding the gate.
There are many trophies. Especially this time, he held no scruples and searched everywhere. Many items which were hidden by awakened ones have been found and plundered by him.
Like this desert eagle.
The Deagle is a very powerful and famous pistol. But in fact, it isn’t very practical. Firstly, the gun is too heavy, and secondly, the recoil is too strong. This is probably apart of a private collection of some former boss before the doomsday.
But it’s different now. He has already gained the physique of an awakened one. The Deagle, which is normally very difficult for ordinary people to handle before the doomsday, is just like an ordinary pistol for him with its recoil. On the contrary, the lethality of the Deagle is just right when dealing with demonized beasts.
He also found a lot of food, especially the rare tobacco and alcohol before the doomsday. Unfortunately, most of the food had been destroyed in battle which made Tang Yu very distressed when witnessing it. Afterwards, he immediately grabbed a handful of snacks and stuffed it into his mouth.
These previously inconspicuous snacks before the doomsday are also things which the boss can afford. Tang Yu suddenly feels he should thank those demonized beasts. Without this demon tide, where can he get a hundred units of source crystals to build his Lord’s Castle? Such a thing in a shelter cannot be freely obtained by him.
It was now nighttime and the stars were shining.
Tang Yu always felt the air after the doomsday was much cleaner than before. At night, he could see stars which he had seldom seen before.
He suddenly remembered his parents far away and wondered if his parents were doing well at this time. At the beginning of doomsday, when mobile phones were still barely useable to communicate. Tang Yu had spoken with his parents several thousands of kilometres away and learned that his parents were still relatively safe. They told him that the military was planning on setting up a shelter near where they lived.
Tang Yu wants to go to them now, but he is also a little worried. He doesn’t know whether the shelter has been successfully built or if everything was all right.
Originally, he was just an ordinary survivor struggling to survive. In his previous life, he couldn’t dream of crossing thousands of kilometres in this dangerous wilderness for a lifetime. At best, he could only pray at the bottom of his heart for the safety of his two elder parents.
Now it’s different. With the system, Tang Yu felt there was hope. Perhaps not yet, but as long as his territory develops smoothly and he improves his own strength. He believes one day in the future. He will be able to cross thousands of kilometres to that distant city.
This day certainly must not be too far away!
Tang Yu was lying in bed. That night, he slept comfortably as he was guarded by No. 1 and No. 2. He didn’t have to worry about the screams and shouting on heaven and earth as soon as he awakened. Now, he no longer had to be nervous all the time and was ready for a new journey in life.
