Chapter 8: Ji Qingwu
Yue’s words had hardly faded when Sun Yu eagerly asked,
“You killed so many zombies, do you have any extra skill books? Give us a copy, we can also help you kill zombies!”
Yue glimpsed at Sun Yu and lightly said.
Not continuing to speak on the subject, Yue looked at the three and continued to say,
“Using the Novice Staff to kill enough zombies can help you get physical enhancement!”
Yue looked at the hands of the three and asked,
“Where are your Novice Staffs?”
“We threw them away when we were escaping.”
Chen Gang said, a bit ashamed.
Sun Yu and Wang Shuang were also ashamed. When escaping, a 1 meter long ‘Novice Staff’ that weighed several kilograms was trash, so they didn’t bring it with them.
Hearing that using the Novice Staff to kill zombies could make them stronger, Chen Gang, Sun Yu and Wang Shuang were full of regrets for discarding theirs.
“Can any of you three drive?” Yue asked.
The road exiting the school had more than 30 zombies wandering around. Yue and White Bones could slowly get rid of the zombies, but the stamina consumption would not be small. Only by taking the school bus would they then be able to smash through the zombies’ blockade.
“I know how to drive!”
Chen Gang and Sun Yu both shook their head, while Wang Shuang suddenly spoke up.
Staring at Wang Shuang, Yue continued to ask,
“Can you drive the school bus?”
Wang Shuang looked at Yue and said,
“I have only driven a car before and haven’t driven a school bus yet, but I think their principles should be the same!”
Yue thought for a moment and replied,
“It seems like that’s the only choice! We have to go get a school bus!”
Sun Yu opened his mouth and protested,
“That is too dangerous! Outside, the place is full of zombies, so why don’t we hide in here? As you can see, there is water and food, and the surrounding zombies have been dealt with. As long as we hide here, we absolutely do not have to worry about water and food. Zombies are only undead; if confronted by a modern army, they would be absolutely no match. We can just wait here for the army to rescue us, is that not better?”
Although Yue had levelled up 3 times, he was not yet strong enough to the point of not fearing any zombies: if he was faced with dozens of zombies he would need to avoid them. There were over 1000 zombies around the campus, therefore making the slightest mistake would result in death. Sun Yu didn’t want to take big risks.
Chen Gang and Wang Shuang also quietened down. People are fearful in these sorts of situations: if given a choice, who would choose to take the risks and not choose a safe place to hide instead? A small supermarket complete with water and food, with the surrounding zombies dealt with by Yue and White Bones, was an ideal shelter.
“Alright! You guys stay here, I will go out.”
Yue eyed the three, shouldered his back pack and marched outside.
Even though Yue had saved the 3 of them, he did not have the power to tell them what to do; if the other side was not willing to act together with him, he would not force them.
Yue and White Bones had just walked out of the small supermarket when a surge of fear quickly struck the hearts of those three- in this zombie world, their future felt very bleak without a strong defender.
“Had I known that, I would have learnt to drive better!”
Once he was out of the small supermarket, Yue looked in the direction of the school bus parking lot with a slight smile on his face. His family was poor and so naturally didn’t have the extra money for him to learn how to drive.
“It seems I can only rely on myself! Hopefully the key is inside!”
Yue took a deep breath and then immediately headed toward the top of a ramp, where the school bus had stopped.
Yun Hua University’s school buses had good quality: they could easily run through things like zombies, which ordinary cars couldn’t do.
On top of that ramp, 8 zombies were staggering around; upon hearing the sound of Yue and White Bones’ footsteps, the 8 zombies immediately staggered towards them.
White Bones took the lead and charged forward, swinging his axe and cutting a zombie in half.
Yue was no weaker as he quickly headed forward, swung his Novice Staff and smashed a zombie head, sending it crooked to the side. His power had increased by 4 points, a 40% increase, so killing the zombies easier now.
One person, one skeleton- they were unhindered as they soon killed the 8 zombies. Yue had used up 1 stamina point.
[You have advanced to level 5, please assign the 2 stat points!]
After killing the 8 zombies, Yue heard a soft sound, the sweet sound of levelling up.
“Distribute 2 points to Stamina immediately!”
Yue decided quickly.
Without sufficient stamina, Yue couldn’t fight for long. Stamina was good for fighting and fleeing as well. If you were not strong enough, even fighting for just a while would consume all of your stamina.
A warm stream surged through Yue’s body, restoring and also increasing the stamina that he’d consumed.
The location of the school bus was near the basketball court, where dozens of men had been turned into zombies. When Yue and White Bones were fighting those 8 zombies, the zombies near the basketball court had been attracted to the sound and staggered over.
Yue glanced at the dozens of zombies then looked at the school bus; he saw that no one was on it and immediately rushed there.
“Damn it! No car keys!”
Yue got in the school bus and found out that there were no keys.
After rummaging around for a moment, Yue quickly jumped out of the bus.
At this time dozen of zombies had staggered towards Yue.
In addition to the basketball courts, in the nearby residential area, there were more than another 10 zombies who had been attracted by the sounds and they staggered towards Yue.
Yue glanced at the dozens of zombies with the desire to retreat. With so many zombies, even if he used up all his stamina to fight them, it would be impossible to kill them all.
“Break through it!”
At that instant, a girl rushed over from the side. Her black hair was smooth and long, and she was wearing jeans and holding a Novice Staff in her hand
All that could then be seen was the girl in jeans moving like a whirlwind, her swordsmanship exquisite; the staff in her hands moved like a snake as it hit the head of a zombie, causing the zombie’s head to tilt to one side.
The zombies that were attacked by the girl in jeans were like grass scattered all around, none of them able to touch her.
“Follow me quickly!” The girl rushed to Yue’s side and said to him.
“Ji Qingwu! Could she be?”
As Yue looked at the girl, an idea crossed his mind and then he followed the girl, rushing away.
