Chapter 15: Fury
Translator: Min

Chen didn’t want to remember what happened that day in the sewerage system .
He only remembered that he threw up, consistently . Yao Yao comforted him and helped him
change into clean clothes . She felt terrible inside too, but since she survived in the apocalypse
for a long time, death was a not an unfamiliar sight .
In the end, Jiang Chen shot the natural gas canister in the room .
He watched the fire cleanse the filth in the room without saying a word .
He held onto the quivering Yao Yao and stepped over a countless number of bodies . He left this
terrifying place .
Sun Jiao’s wound scabbed already . After Jiang Chen came back, she could even walk by herself .
Three bullets hit her in the stomach, and one in the shoulder . After he had heard Sun Jiao taking
out the bullets by herself, he was only a little surprised . This brave girl always surprised him .
After they had returned to the mansion, he got drunk . He finished all the beers he brought .
Because of Sun Jiao's injury, she slept early and Yao Yao took care of him for the night .
She was incredibly understanding . She also felt the agony and pain . The scene almost shattered
any courage she had built up, but she knew that Jiang Chen needed to be taken care of right
now .
This compassionate man was almost like someone who had just left a survival base . She
remembered the first time she saw a pile of dead bodies, and she almost immediately fainted .
However, as soon as she realized that even in survival camp, death was only a routine, she
became desensitized .
Compassion was rare in this world, so wasting it would be considered a sin . In the apocalypse, it
was foolish, but incredible at the same time .
She heard about the cannibals . They hid within the shadows, under the filthy sewages . They
worshiped a distorted religion which prided the act of feasting on the bodies of the same race .
Every single one of them was the enemy of any human force . Even the anti-human neo-human
group was disgusted by them . Praised for their freedom, Sixth Street outlawed any cannibals
from approaching the area .
She placed a warm towel on Jiang Chen’s forehead, Yao Yao looked at Jiang Chen’s face full of
sorrow and then she silently left the room .
“Did he fall asleep?”
Yao Yao paused slightly . Sun Jiao was awake; she had a perplexed look on her face .
“Mhmm, weren’t you asleep as well?”
“Yes, but I can’t fall asleep . Never mind, I’ll talk to him tomorrow . ” Sun Jiao turned around .
“You, how are you feeling?” Yao Yao looked at the bandage around Sun Jiao’s waist . That
question almost took all of her courage .

“It’s not a big deal . I am quite confident about my healing ability,” Sun Jiao forced a smile as she
answered weakly . “By the way . ”
“Mhmm?” Yao Yao stopped, just as she was about to turn around . Yao Yao was puzzled .
“… Thanks . ”
In the dim light Yao Yao couldn’t make out Sun Jiao’s facial expression, and Sun Jiao went into

her room right after . Yao Yao grinned . Although she was not used to dealing with the bold
female master, she was a nice person after all .
The next morning .
Jiang Chen sat on the soft bed as he rubbed his sleepy eyes . The sunshine cast through the
window was bright .
The radiation cloud finally scattered . The temperature was about to go up; it was the midst of
summer in the modern world .
The door slowly opened, Yao Yao’s tiny body squeezed into the room .
“Hmm, let me help you wash your face,” Yao Yao said gently as she placed a bowl of water onto
the head dresser .
He looked at the cute face . A delighted smile melted from his sore face and he touched Yao Yao's
forehead . “Don’t worry . I can do it . What time is it?”
“It’s nine . Let me do it . ” She wetted the tower and gently rubbed Jiang Chen’s face .
It felt nice, so Jiang Chen didn’t resist .
“Does it feel better now?”
“Much better . Yao Yao is very caring . ” His muscle still felt sore, but he was capable of moving
around .
Maybe because she received a compliment, but a delighted smile appeared on her face .
“You, are you feeling better?” Sun Jiao also came into the room after she heard some noises . She
stared at Jiang Chen worriedly from the door .
“I am okay, but you, are your injuries okay?”
“I am fine; I need to explain something to you . ” Her face suddenly turned serious which made
Jiang Chen tense up as well .
Although Sun Jiao loved to joke around, she always treated things seriously when it was
necessary .
Just as the mood was about to tense up, Sun Jiao all of a sudden laughed . From Jiang Chen’s
shocked look, she turned around .
“Let’s eat breakfast first . ”
The breakfast was very delicious, to the apocalypse standard .
There were toast and ketchup .
For some reason, ketchup made Jiang Chen’s stomach feel quite upset .
Sun Jiao looked at Jiang Chen who held onto his stomach nervously; she sighed before taking
away the ketchup .

Sun Jiao has a passion for food, but all of the sudden she had no appetite .
It was not because of the cannibals . This was the first time she saw something so gruesome .
She was worried about Jiang Chen as it was his first time witnessing the cruelty of the
apocalypse . That was only the tip of the iceberg .
“I… I need to go out . I’ll probably be back in a month's time . There’s not a lot of food left in
storage . ” If he stayed here any longer, he would break down mentally .
He made up an excuse because the idea of interdimensional travel was too complicated to
explain .
“Ok, come back as early as you can . ” Sun Jiao wanted to say something, but only those words left
her mouth .

her mouth .
“Let’s eat . ” Jiang Chen gave her a weak smile . He knew that he looked terrible, but he couldn't be
brave at this moment .
He was fatigued physically and mentally .
Sun Jiao carefully chewed on the toast and explained to Jiang Chen what happened to his body
yesterday . Gene vaccine, theoretically, only slightly improved the human regenerative cell
function which would improve the human muscle strength, bone strength, reflex and survivor
ability . Jiang Chen opened his EP and saw his improvements in the past three days .
User Name: Jiang Chen
Muscle Strength: 24
Bone Strength: 25
Reflex: 28
Brain Cell Strength: 14
All three basic abilities almost doubled . By modern world standards, Jiang Chen could be
described as superhuman .
“Yesterday, because of your anger, you entered fury mode . ” She remembered Jiang Chen was
furious because of her which made her blush a little . “Normally, gene vaccine will only improve
the three basic functions . However, because it changed some DNA in the body, some
unpredictability does exist . Someone even grew two heads . ”
“What? The thing you injected into me was something this dangerous?” Jiang Chen dropped the
toast onto the ground .
“Some probability, almost negligible . ” She didn’t want to admit her mistake and chose to
change the topic .
“But for some people, the mutations are beneficial, so they received useful abilities . For me, my
ability is tenacious . ” Sun Jiao stood up and unzipped her clothes .
“Ahem, what are you doing?” Surprised by her actions, Jiang Chen was slightly confused .
However, when he saw the flawless waist, he was shocked . “What happened to your scar?” Only

faint white dots were left on the lightly tanned skin . This was the new skin she grew . In a
couple of days, he wouldn’t even be able to tell the difference .
“Tenacious’s ability is to increase cell regenerative speed for the non-fatal wound . After the
usage of the ability, the body will be frail . Constant usage will also result in cardiac arrest .
Cardiac arrest .
“Your ability is the same . You have to remember you are exchanging your life for power .
Therefore, you shouldn’t use it as much . According to EP, it is called Fury right?”
“Yes . ” Jiang Chen nodded . He checked the EP yesterday, and it showed “Special Ability: Fury . ”
“Clinically, anyone with this ability will be triggered by strong emotional stimulants . The
body’s cell will enter a rapid stage of regeneration . In macro terms, it’s an increase in strength
and reflex . The specifics are person-dependent . You can find information related to your usage
on your EP .
Jiang Chen was surprised by the EP’s function . Under Sun Jiao’s guidance, he found the
document .

document .
Hidden Gene Ability:
Muscle Strength +20
Reflex + 19
Brain Cell Strength +17
Special effect: Killer instinct, use any of the five human sense to identify the location of the
opponent's heart .
Maximum effective duration: Thirty minutes
The fury ability could increase brain cell strength? Make me Smarter? Jiang Chen was quite
bewildered .
“I caution you against using the ability too much . ” Sun Jiao noticed Jiang Chen’s surprised
expression, and she sighed .
“Did you forget the effect of the ability?”
He remembered he fainted that day and only regained consciousness after a long time .
“If it’s in a safe environment, then it is okay . But in the midst of the battle, no one can predict
the outcome . If you met someone you cannot take care of while using the ability, then there is
only one ending for you . ”
Sweat began to roll down Jiang Chen’s forehead as Sun Jiao explained . If Yao Yao didn’t get
there in time, he would be a headless body by now .
“But you don’t have to worry; these abilities are often controllable . You can use special medicine
to active and terminate the ability . It will make your ability much more useful . With practice,
you can even use your mental strength to control the ability . Like me, I don’t need the
assistance of medicine anymore . ” Sun Jiao passed on two plastic tubes to Jiang Chen . “Put this
inside your EP and match the corresponding color . If you need to active fury, you just need to

press a button . The EP will use the micro-needle to inject the medicine into your body .
However, my recommendation is still to not over-rely on this ability . ”
“Ok . ” Jiang Chen carefully nodded .
After breakfast, he packed up his bag filled the gold . The two girls followed him into the living
room to say goodbye . Although Jiang Chen reassured them that he would be back soon, Sun Jiao
and Yao Yao insisted .
He hugged Sun Jiao as she kissed him without a slight hesitation . The passionate and wetness
of the kiss would not be dull even after a million times .
“The food is in the fridge . There is enough in there to last half a year . Remember to eat the fresh
vegetable first; canned foods are not that healthy . ”
“Ok honey, can you say something romantic right now . “ Sun Jiao rolled her eyes at Jiang Chen,
but her eyes were filled with longing .
After Sun Jiao, Jiang Chen also hugged Yao Yao . “Remember to take care of your body; I want to
see a healthy Yao Yao after I come back . ”
“Mhmm!” Yao Yao nodded her head .
He felt her pointy chin on his shoulder before he placed her down .
“First, you have to come back . ” She asked him with a plea .
Jiang Chen gave her a sincere smile to assure all of her concerns . “Of course I will be back . ”

“First, you have to come back . ” She asked him with a plea .
Jiang Chen gave her a sincere smile to assure all of her concerns . “Of course I will be back . ”
Jiang Chen was about to leave, but he felt a weak resistive force from his waist . He looked at Yao
Yao confusedly as she held onto him and just as he was about to ask her why .
Her lips covered his .
There was an elegant fragrance; it tasted like lavender . Yao Yao pecked him on the lips and ran
away .
He touched his lips still stunned by what happened; he then saw Sun Jiao’s deadly stare .
“You can’t blame me for this . ”
Sun Jiao sighed as Jiang Chen tried to explain . She hugged him again and whispered, “don’t say
anything, come back soon . ”
“Mhmm . ” Jiang Chen opened his mouth, but he only left a simple response .
She stared at his shadow with a perplexed look . The woman was a sensitive creature . She could
guess that Jiang Chen was from a country before the war . Only in a structured society would
gold have any value . From her knowledge, there was no place in this world where gold has any
value left .
Will he come back to this world? She didn’t know .
If it was before, she might choose to keep him here . It was typical for people in the apocalypse .
But she didn't choose this option .
She saw the fearlessness in his eyes since the beginning . Even if he was tied down with a gun
pointed at his head, he was afraid, but he never feared . The companions were all lies; the
organization was also a story he created . She didn’t know what he hid .

It was not a stupid fearlessness, but it a was calculated risk . Sun Jiao had the feeling that at
Sixth Street if he wanted to leave, no one in this world could stop him . He would also do it with
less effort than her .
She even had the idea of hiding the gold to control Jiang Chen, but she restrained the idea to her
head .
She chose to trust him .
He will not leave me here . He will be back . Sun Jiao believed him . Although if she followed him,
she would find out his secret . But, she didn’t do it .
It was odd because this was the first she trusted the idea of a relationship in the apocalypse .
Although Yao Yao didn’t know Jiang Chen’s secret, as witty as she was, she was smart enough to
see a slight hesitation in his eyes . She didn’t know from where this hesitation came . Maybe it
was because of the conflict with the Hui Zhong Mercenaries, or maybe it was because of the
mental image left behind at the cannibals’ camp .
She saw the hesitation in him . Maybe it was because of this uncertainty that made him
postpone the vault idea and leave for a period .
This choice made Yao Yao quite relieved . Though it was a gloomy feeling, she felt that if Jiang
Chen got the gold from the vault, then he would not be back for a long time .
If Jiang Chen disappeared, she would feel despair . She didn’t want to feel that way .
So in the last moment, she followed her heart, and she kissed Jiang Chen .
For the same reason, Sun Jiao didn’t stop her despite Sun Jiao's possessiveness . In the end, he
needed some attachment in his heart . So, the more, the better .
Then, he would come back .
