Chapter 15: Fury
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
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
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
“Ok, come back as early as you can . ” Sun Jiao wanted to say something, but only those words left
her mouth .
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
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 . ”
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
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 .
