My Doomsday Territory - Chapter 5
Tang Yu walked very carefully along the trail halfway up the mountain. This path was out of his territory’s monitoring range. From time to time, he would suddenly see demonized beasts fly out… Then, they were subsequently smashed into a meaty paste by No. 1.
Arriving in the front of the hotel, there is a vacant lot. Before, many sheds and houses were built, occupying most of this square. But now, these sheds and houses have all collapsed.
No. 1 kills the demonized beasts attracted by the noise while Tang Yu cuts open the heads of the dead demonized beasts in the back. He wanted to see if these corpses had any source crystals inside.
A little while later, there were a few more sparkling source crystals which appeared in his hand.
“Why do I feel that killing these demonized beasts in order to find source crystals is much more lucrative than searching the residences of the awakened ones?” Tang Yu truly didn’t understand how poor these awakened ones were. The contribution of 100 units of source crystals from the whole awakened one villa area was already the paltry limit which could be expected from them.
After clearing the surrounding area of demonized beasts, Tang Yu directed No. 1 to walk towards the hotel while he followed closely behind.
Suddenly, he saw a dark shadow on the ceiling. Before he could clearly see what it was, he heard a loud bang which was accompanied by a strong shockwave. When the floating dust gradually settled, what appeared in front of him was the body of a demonized beast. He couldn’t clearly make out its appearance since it already looked more like a meaty paste.
Tang Yu swallowed his saliva.
He doesn’t know whether he was more frightened by the demonized beasts or… More frightened by No. 1’s display of violence. With No. 1 being so powerful, it wouldn’t be surprising if it demolishes the whole building.
While thinking these terms, suddenly, No. 1 clenched the long spear with both hands and tilted the tip of the spear downward, vaguely pointing to something in the distance.
Tang Yu also became more vigilant.
This is the form No. 1 takes when it’s on high alert. Entering this state indicates that No. 1 is ready to burst into full force, which is a sign of imminent danger approaching! Obviously at the beginning, in the face of those three difficult to mess with demonized beasts, No. 1 had some room left to spare.
But looking in the direction where No. 1 is pointing, he quickly dilated his pupils at a red figure.
Inside the cold storage area.
The survivors gasped for breath after surviving their ordeal.
“Ha… Have we been saved?”
“Let’s get out of this place!”
“But will that demonized beast still be outside—”
There was another loud bang. This time, the shockwaves were even stronger, as if a demolition team was setting off explosives upstairs. Some survivors staggered and threw themselves onto the floor.
This loud noise is just the beginning. After, the crackles and roars resounded throughout the area. The survivors became paler as they felt tremors go through the earth, as if the hotel would directly collapse in the next moment.
What’s going on outside?
What on earth should they do?
The survivors don’t understand the situation happening on the outside.
Chen Haiping had a solemn expression. There was some speculation in his mind. However, he felt his guess was hard to believe.
The tremor didn’t last long as it soon subsided.
Several of the survivors stared at each other with wide and small eyes. Before, they had just said they wanted to leave here, but now they can’t say anything. Now they fear the demonized beast will catch them on its return.
At this time, there was movement at the door which had been torn open. Several survivors held their breath and stared with wide eyes.
Outside on the battlefield.
There were blue and red with light and shadow intersecting with each other. Wherever they passed by, the walls collapse while the ground cracks underneath.
Tang Yu stared nervously on the battlefield. As he was getting ready to remotely order No. 2 to come to their aid. Suddenly, he found the blue light on the field had gained the upper hand. Although he couldn’t clearly make out the movements of each side with his eyes. The spilt blood in the field clearly shows him that it was the demonized beast who was injured!
As a high-level combat puppet, No. 1’s fighting instinct is extremely high. When it was presented with the opportunity, it seized the chance to suddenly rotate the tip of its long spear. Accompanying this rotation was the air around it suddenly solidifying as the wind is swept up with dust filling the space, much like a mini-tornado.
In the next moment, the wind stopped.
No. 1 draws the long spear back and the scarlet demonized beast is lying on the ground. What is left is a hole on its forehead with bright crimson blood flowing out.
“The battle is finally over.”
Tang Yu was relieved to see the hotel still standing. He saw it had several gaps torn through and was already in a messy dilapidated state.
This scarlet demonized beast can be said to be the most powerful demonized beast he has ever encountered. Fortunately, No. 1 is awesome and powerful. Tang Yu saw that this demonized beast wasn’t much worse than No. 1 in terms of speed and strength. But No. 1 is a puppet with ungodly defence and endurance. Obviously, these two points have comprehensively crushed this scarlet demonized beast.
Down the hall, Tang Yu came to the underground cold storage area, which was originally the place where his previous shelter had used to store the food.
At this time, the door to the cold storage area has been destroyed, and a lot of debris had been piled up behind the door. It looked like a garbage heap with destroyed fragments scattered all around.
Under the dim light, Tang Yu heard the sound of heavy breathing.
There’s a living person, a survivor!
In an instant, Tang Yu was left stupefied.
“We are human, not demonized beasts!”
The survivors breathed a sigh of relief when they found the visitor was a person.
When the men arrived, Chen Haiping made careful observations of them. The first one was a young man dressed in casual clothes and looked too clean. The other person he saw was completely wrapped u in armour, making him unable to clearly see his face. Only the one in the armour was stained with a lot of blood.
With the large movements above, his guess in mind was someone was fighting against the demonized beast. When he first saw these two men, his first thought was someone had solved the terrifying demonized beast—. Although he couldn’t believe this speculation since in his view, such a terrifying demonized beast could only be solved using heavy weapons. But given the present situation, this guess is already the most likely scenario.
However, after seeing these two men, Chen Haiping was shaken by another speculation.
Whether it was the young man in clean clothes or the warrior with blood stained on his armour. He couldn’t sense any aura of being an awakened one from either of these two men. If they were neither awakened ones nor did they rely on heavy weapons. No matter what he thinks, neither of them can beat that terrifying demonized beast.
“Could it be the terrifying demonized beast had just left and didn’t attack you two?”
He voiced this doubt in his mind.
Tang Yu frowned at his words and said: “Terrifying demonized beast? You mean the one that was out there? Of course, it’s already dead.”
The rest of the ordinary survivors took a deep breath of cool air, which was then followed by uncontrollable shouts of joy.
Chen Haiping ran out of the cold storage area and came to the ground floor. He was very careful at first, but when he reached the hall on the first floor, he saw the scarlet demonized beast covered in lethal wounds with no signs of life.
His eyes were so round, with no idea what to say.
Thinking back to the mysterious warrior in armour again. The man was carrying a long spear behind him, and his spear was also stained with blood. Is this not consistent with the fatal wound on the forehead of this demonized beast?!
“Did they really kill it?”
Looking at the mess, every inch of the floor of the hall is cracked while the walls looked like it was about to collapse. If it wasn’t for the load-bearing columns in the hotel still being present, he would really worry whether the whole hotel would collapse in the next moment.
No wonder the shockwaves were so violent just now. Just by looking at the scene, Chen Haiping knew the strength of the scarlet demonized beast was far beyond his expectations. But the strength of these two who could behead the scarlet demonized beast was even more terrifying.
He no longer thinks of Tang Yu as just an ordinary person. How can an ordinary person have such strength?!
Chen Haiping is clear about the division of strength for awakened ones.
More specifically, he knows awakened ones absorb refined spirit power to reach a certain critical point to break through. After a breakthrough, their physical quality will be greatly improved, just like him. In his previous shelter, he is considered a middle-ranking awakened one. But he is still considered—a first order awakened one.
This means that although his strength is slightly stronger than ordinary awakened ones, he still hasn’t reached that critical threshold to break through. But he knows that the most powerful awakened one in his previous shelter had broken through the double threshold and reached triple awakening.
In the entire shelter, and even among the awakened ones, this man was the only one he has ever heard of reaching beyond first order and achieving triple awakening. This man has long fallen in the demon wave, but Chen Haiping has seen this man fight. His destructive force wasn’t as powerful as these two.
So, are these two actually more powerful than awakened ones?
Chen Haiping was frightened by his own speculation, but this was the only possibility that made sense. Similarly, because the gap between him and the two men was so wide, he couldn’t sense the aura of awakened ones from these two masters. He, therefore, mistook them for ordinary people.
Even if they were super-strong, how could this young man’s clothes stay so clean? Only the super-strong could roam in and out of the wilderness without being stained by dust.
This is the only logical explanation!
