Chapter 14: The Filthy Underground Sewerage System
Translator: xujin Editor: xujin-editor
“It’s quite dark in here, who knows what will pop up . ” With boots covered in stain, Jiang Chen
looked around the sewerage system . It was his first time in here, and although the pungent
smell made it uncomfortable, he got used to it .
"Scared?” Sun Jiao jokingly asked .
“No way . ” Jiang Chen raised his PK200 assault rifle . “I wasn’t even afraid of those guys up
there . ”
The beam of flashlight spotted a couple of half-human sized rats but made them immediately
fleet into darkness .
In the apocalypse, the most terrifying things were not zombies, nor mutants, but were humans .
In the explosion, they were certain that all the mercenaries died . The ten-meter tall building
made it almost impossible to escape the concrete debris . Nobody expected that in this
desolated-looking building, a trap like that was hidden .
The primary support structure of the building was strapped with wireless explosives . With a
touch of a button, the entire building would blow up in explosions .
Initially, Jiang Chen was quite worried about the integrity of the sewage system after the blast,
but it looked like he considered too much . Other than scaring the creatures in the vicinity, the
sewerage was completely fine . It was evident that the government built the infrastructure with
fortitude and integrity . He would probably be buried if this happened in the modern world .
“What do you think Huizhong Mercenaries’ leader would do if he heard that his entire raid team
was completely gone?”
“I would imagine that the second we appeared on Sixth Street, he would come and haunt us . ”
Sun Jiao brought Jiang Chen back into reality .
“Hmm, well this is going to problematic . ” Jiang Chen didn’t even think about this consequence .
“But it is okay . A lot of things can be purchased elsewhere anyways . Also, this is an opportunity
to get rid of the Hui Zhong Mercenaries as a whole . ” Sun Jiao naturally created a plan of
massacre without even thinking .
Jiang Chen was a firm believer of risk and reward . Even if Hui Zhong Mercenaries was filled
with completely filthy humans, he considered himself to be a merchant . So he didn’t believe in
the need to serve justice .
Yao Yao trailed the two of them in silence; she looked around uneasily .
“What’s wrong? Don’t be afraid; big brother will protect you . ” Shamelessly, Jiang Chen patted
his chest . Since he took care of the mercenaries, he was in a pleasant mood . Yao Yao’s idolized
“Haha, at least one or two . ” Jiang Chen replied with an awkward smile as soon as he met Sun
Jiao’s look of disbelief . “Wounded . ”
Jiang Chen admits that his accuracy was questionable at best . After all, shooting in games was a
lot different from shooting in real life . But with practice, it will only take time before he became
a qualified soldier .
“Haha,” Yao Yao grinned with a light laughter . But she soon realized that she probably
shouldn’t mock the master, and she carefully closed her mouth . The expression on her face was
quite comical .
In this relaxed atmosphere, the three of them headed towards “home . ”
“How much longer?”
“Should be pretty close now . There is an exit that can take us to the top . ” Sun Jiao checked the
full-sensory map .
Suddenly, Jiang Chen sensed a ghastly danger . His heart started to pound profusely .
Sun Jiao also felt something and stopped moving .
Gun shots were fired all of a suddenly .
The bullets from the shadow aimed directly at them . Sun Jiao pushed Jiang Chen to the back
with full force and knocked Yao Yao who was behind him over . But she had no more energy to
dodge herself .
She groaned as she covered her arm in pain . She slammed onto the ground and dropped the
laser rifle .
“NO!” Jiang Chen’s felt his body overwhelmed with raging blood . He roared, and within half a
second, he dragged Sun Jiao behind cover .
Bullets shattered the ground and created a debris of rocks . An obscure howl resonated from not
far away . In a closed environment, the echoing sound spread terrifyingly .
However, Jiang Chen couldn’t hear anything . He watched Sun Jiao’s closed eyelids . A painful
tremble spread from his head to his toe and incapacitated his entire body .
The time they spent together suddenly all flashed in front of his eyes . The brave girl, the
gorgeous girl, and the girl that loves me .
She pushed me away . But she . . .
He stared emptily at the blood stain . In a matter of a second, Sun Jiao went from being
“I don’t know how . Please take care of Sun Jiao . ” Jiang Chen shoved the medical kit into Yao
Yao’s hands as he took out the assault rifle .
Bang Bang Bang!
The gunfire unveiled the ugly but happy faces in the shadow . They looked like indigenous
people that lived in the sewerage system . So they were used to the seeing in the dark .
Any trespasser would become food for them . Rats, or humans .
“Haha, you fuckers!” Jiang Chen let out a furious roar as he stepped out of the cover .
Bullets flew inches beside his face, but he didn’t sense any fear . As if fear was completely
removed from his body, and only vigilance remained . He searched for the flashing flares as he
opened fire .
It was a remarkable feeling . Every cell within Jiang Chen was screaming, but it didn’t make
Jiang Chen lose his mind . He was as calm and collected as he has ever been, with his only
objective being to kill .
But what he didn’t realize was that the EP on his arm flashed a faint yellow light .
He busted an empty clip and snapped on a new one . With force, he continued to fire into the
Slowly, his vision began to glare . It felt as if everything he saw was submerged in water . The
odd disturbance only made Jiang Chen more furious, but his anger only made the disturbance
He tried to recollect his vision and focus on the target . However, his vision completely changed .
Flashing red dots jumped in his line of sight; it was as if small hearts pounded in the darkness .
Or they were hearts beating after all .
With a furious roar, Jiang Chen fired towards those red dots .
The unknown moans and screams made Jiang Chen more zealous . He left the cover and moved
to the red dots .
The blinding flashlight was obviously a nightmare for the indigenous who were used to the
darkness . Flashing white lights filled their field of vision . They couldn’t see anything as they
shot blindly into space .
“You f*ckers . Stand still . Today is the end for all of you!” With a mental laugh, Jiang Chen
continued to roar in the sewerage .
Suddenly, he saw a heart still beating with the glimpse of an eye .
A dark-skinned boy looked at the vicious Jiang Chen with fearful eyes . The pistol in his hand
was unable to shoot because of the jammed bullets .
Tatata! The assault rifle breathed the deathly flame as it completely shattered the beating heart
that irritated him .
“Who’s next?” A corrupted door blocked Jiang Chen’s path of advancement; Jiang Chen kicked
open the door .
An offensive odor whiffed directly at him . Livers, arms, blood and bones scattered across the
room . In the middle of the cave was a giant pot, and a limbless person barely alive .
Even in his furious state, Jiang Chen almost threw up in disgust . But immediately, he started
shooting the trembling females and the limbless person .
The sharp scream of the creatures immediately echoed inside the cave . The limbless person left
a relieved smile as the bullet penetrated his heart . The gunfire flared at Jiang Chen’s twisted
face . He was angry, but he didn’t know why he was angry . He couldn’t even remember his
He only wanted to kill, and only knew how to kill . Only death could extinguish the flashing red
dots in front of him .
The bullet jammed . Jiang Chen brutally slapped the side of the gun . But he didn’t notice that
there was still someone alive buried among the bodies . Vigilante flashed out of his eyes .
“AHHHHH!” A bloodstained person howled an obscure noise and pushed Jiang Chen onto the
ground . Under the scattered hair was a pair of tiny eyes . He sat on top of Jiang Chen, with full
force, he pushed the dagger directly onto Jiang Chen’s throat . The dagger had previously
It was so “ugly,” he wanted to rip it apart .
But he was too slow .
Bang, another bullet penetrated his head .
Yao Yao was crying as the gun slid through her hand . She picked up the gun from the boy as she
knew how to fix jammed weapons . After she finished treating Sun Jiao, the first word from Sun
Jiao, after she coughed up blood, was telling her to follow Jiang Chen . She said he was in a
She saw the plea in Sun Jiao’s eyes, Yao Yao also was worried about Jiang Chen . Despite
terrified, it took something magical she didn’t know to overcome the fear, she followed Jiang
Chen’s trail .
When she saw Jiang Chen fall, her heart almost stopped pumping . She picked up the gun and
fixed it . With her fear suppressed, she pulled the trigger .
This was her first time she killed a person . Although the thing she killed could not be described
as a person, it was a human-shaped monster .
Faintly, Jiang Chen felt something warm and soft surrounding his head and hugging him
tightly . He also heard a girl’s crying voice .
Droplets of water fell beside his cracked lips .
It was salty .
It didn’t taste like blood?
