Chapter 12: Replica Tang Sword
“Driving the school bus is not a problem right?” Yue asked. What he needed right now was a person who could drive the school bus.
Chen Yao confidently said, “There is no problem!”
“The key to the school bus, do you know where it is?” Yue continued to ask. Without the key, even if they found the bus, it would be useless.
Chen Yao quickly replied,
“The driver of the school bus is Zhang Xiao. His room is between the General Office and Academic Affairs Office. If there is nothing else, we should be able to find him at those two places.”
Chen Yao was the president of the student council so she regularly had to deal with the leaders of the school. She often took the school bus to other places, so that was why she knew the room where the driver stayed.
Yue Zhong opened the the White Treasure Box that was inside his backpack; a light flashed and a sharp Tang sword appeared in front of his eyes.
[Replica Tang Sword, Level 1. Attack: 5-8. This fine sword is very sharp and can easily behead a human. A great weapon against those that are infected.]
“Great sword! With this fine sword, dealing with zombies will be much easier.”
Yue Zhong caressed the sharp Tang Sword and an icy touch came from the blade of it.
Yue was often using the novice staff to smash the zombies, resulting in a heavy recoil. With this Replica Tang Sword in hand, he would easily be able to kill zombies.
Yue took out the Small Fireball Skill and gave it to Chen Yao, saying solemnly,
“You guys should have heard the sound. I’ll tell you some information. If you kill enough zombies, you will level up and will be strengthened. That Special Skeleton is one of my skills. This is a Level 1 Skill Book [Small Fireball] and it will teach you the skill. Chen Yao, I can give this Skill Book to you but I want you to promise me that when we are safe, help me save one of my friends.”
To Yue Zhong, this Small Fireball Skill was only a second-rate one, but if he could use it to enhance his own side’s strength, he would be stingy when choosing who to give it to. At this time, Yue’s only desire was to escape and find his best friend.
Although Chen Yao was very weak and was not strong at fighting, she was still very capable and knew a lot. Yue Zhong wanted to have such a companion to increase the chances of survival. Chen Yao was very decisive. There was jealously and envy in the eyes of the 3 other girls towards the person who took the skill book.
“Yes! I promise you that once we are safe, I will certainly help you to find your best friend.”
A light flashed and the skill book turned into a beam of light that entered Chen Yao’s body.
“It’s magic!” Zhang Xuan watched Chen Yao enviously from the side; this was the first time that she saw someone receive such a skill.
“Really! Why does she get all the good stuff ?! Even god is blessing her!”
Wang Fang watched Chen Yao absorb the skill book and eyes filled with jealousy and hate.
Chen Yao was not only very beautiful, but her family was also very wealthy and in the university, she was the object of many boys’ desires. Even though Wang Fang was a desirable girl, in comparison to Chen Yao, she was far worse. She had always been envious and jealous of Chen Yao’s luck. Now that the world had begun to collapse, Chen Yao was given a Skill Book by Yue Zhong that increased her chances of survival: this made Wang Fang even more jealous.
“How is it? Chen Yao! Release the magic for us to see!” Zhang Xuan stood right next to Chen Yao and pestered curiously.
Chen Yao had an eager look on her face. She had just received a new kind of power and she also wanted to know how strong her skill was.
Yue quickly stopped them and said,
“No! In your current state, you’re only be able to launch a fireball a day. You must only use it at a critical moment.”
A fireball might be able to save their life at a critical moment, so Yue Zhong would never allow Chen Yao to use it indiscriminately.
Chen Yao quickly calmed down and nodded, saying, “I know.”
Yue looked at Ji Qingwu and said, “Qingwu, how is your stamina recovery?”
Without the slightest hesitation, she said towards Yue,
“6 points, my max stamina is 12 points. It is difficult to recover and it seems that my body is very tired.”
“You guys stay here and watch. I will take a break and then promptly go out looking for the keys. Ji Qingwu, call me in 5 minutes.” Yue finished talking and then took out an Apple of Vitality; he finished eating it in a few bites, then lay on the bed with his eyes closed. Doing that would make him recover better.
Seeing Yue lie on the the bed, the baby-faced Zhang Xuan quickly blushed and muttered in a low voice, “That’s my bed!”
Yue was too tired and with his head falling onto the pillow, he quickly fell asleep.
Outside, those zombies were constantly hitting the dormitory door. Besides Ji Qingwu, the other girls were all huddled next to Yue, scared and not knowing when the door would be broken through.
5 minutes later, Ji Qingwu nudged Yue and said, “Get up! 5 minutes have passed.”
“5 minutes already? That’s way too fast.” Yue opened his eyes and said with a slightly wry smile as he looked at Ji Qingwu. He had been in intense battles since the early afternoon; nevertheless, with the nourishment from the Apple of Vitality, his stamina was back to 11 points.
Yue quickly stood up from the bed, removing the climbing rope from the backpack and tying it to a secure pole, then releasing it out the window.
“If you guys cannot stand it any more,you can escape from this place.” Yue said to the girls before quickly climbing down the rope.
White Bones quickly followed suit and climbed down the rope after Yue.
Yue had just landed when 4 zombies staggered towards him from nearby.
With his Tang sword in hand, Yue Zhong quickly rushed forward and swung the sword against the zombie head, instantly beheading it. Foul blood splattered everywhere.
As he beheaded another zombie, Yue Zhong silently praised the Replica Tang Sword.
The Replica Tang Sword was much sharper than the staff and only required half the force from before to behead a zombie, meaning that he could now use less power to kill more zombies.
With the combined power of Yue Zhong wielding the Replica Tang Sword and White Bones, they quickly slayed the 4 zombies and immediately headed in the direction of the General Office and the Academic Affairs Office.
Seeing Yue Zhong emerge, the group of zombies began to move in his direction, chasing after him.
