Chapter 9: Small Fireball
Yue, Ji Qingwu and White Bones: the three of them fought together while running towards a pavilion on the lake.
The pavilion had a narrow pathway that only one person could pass through; surrounded by water, it was an easily defensible fortress against the zombies.
Fleeing to the pavilion, White Bones stood in the middle of the pathway. The zombies that had been attracted to them were chopped by the axe, sending their head flying.
The zombies were no match for White Bones, who stood by himself on the narrow pathway.
Ji Qing Wu eyed Yue and asked him using a seductive voice,
(Note: sorry, couldn’t resist lol)
Yue looked at Ji Qing Wu and gave a slight chuckle, saying,
“Sister Ji, my name’s Yue Zhong. I think inside the school those that do not know you are rare!”
She had a head of smooth, glossy black hair that went down to her shoulders, an exquisitely pretty face, a tall and buxom figure, clear black eyes and skin as white as white jade (Note: D’oh, white jade is white). The girl in front of him was the girl recognized as the most beautiful in Yun Hua University, Ji Qingwu.
Over a year ago at the New Year’s party, Ji Qingwu had performed a sword dance at Yun Hua University; most of the people were totally entranced by this pretty and beautiful girl. She also became the dream lover of most of the boys at the University. It was said that many wealthy sons from outside the school also came in luxury cars to find her.
Although Yue did not pay too much attention to this aspect, he still recognized her because of the stunning sword dance at the New Year’s party. Yue did not think that the stunning and exquisite Ji Qing Wu would have such courage to fight those zombies and be so powerful.
Ji Qingwu glanced at White Bones and asked directly,
“Is that an ability you obtained?”
Yue nodded and replied,
With a pair of big eyes, Ji Qingwu stared at Yue and earnestly said,
“I need your help, please accompany me in a trip to the girls’ dormitory. My friend is trapped in the dormitory, so could you please go with me to save her!?”
Inside the girls’ dormitory, there were a lot of zombies wandering around; though powerful, Ji Qing Wu wouldn’t be able to kill so many zombies by herself to save her friend.
Yue nodded and made a request,
“No problem! However, sister Ji, I also have a buddy to save, so after things are more stable, I hope that you can help me save him!”
Yue didn’t know what kind of ability Ji Qingwu had obtained, but even with just her superb, practical swordsmanship, she was already the best companion. In this mutated world, Ji Qing Wu was one of the best companions to hope for.
Ji Qing Wu nodded in reply.
“Did you have a good rest here? If there are no problems, then please follow me!”
Ji Qingwu asked Yue ten minutes later.
Yue stood up and said,
“Good! Let’s go!”
Yue’s stamina had been restored to 10 points and so he would be able to fight for a long time.
Holding the Novice Staff in her hands, Ji Qingwu quickly went out.
On the pathway, there were bodies of headless zombies everywhere, over 10 zombies that were attracted by Yue and Ji Qing Wu whom were then killed by White Bones.
White Bones was faster than Yue and had already gotten to level 6, his stats having increased once again.
Ji Qingwu looked at White Bones, then smiled at Yue and said,
“This ability of yours is really useful.”
White Bones was an undead with superior fighting ability- his ability to fight continuously was greater than Yue and Ji Qingwu.
Walking among the corpses, Yue smiled as he began collecting Life Coins and checked to see if there were any items.
“This is a Skill Book!”
Suddenly, Yue’s eyes lit up. On one side of the pile of corpses quietly lay a book; he immediately stepped forward and picked it up.
[Level 1 Skill Book – Small Fireball. Can release a small fireball to attack the enemy. This skill can be practised by the mage profession.
Before upgrading the skill to Level 2, it can only be released once every 3 days.
Can be sold for 100 Life Coins!]
“This skill is not suited for me.”
As Yue picked up the Skill Book, a thought quickly flashed through his mind.
Ji Qing Wu came to take a look and asked Yue,
“What Skill Book is this?”
Yue raised the Skill Book and asked Ji Qing Wu,
“Level 1 Skill Book, Small Fireball. Do you want it?”
Ji Qing Wu looked at the Skill Book in Yue’s hand, shook her head and said:
“No need, let’s go!”
Yue put the Skill Book in his backpack, straightened the things inside and immediately followed Ji Qingwu outside.
Yue, Ji Qing Wu and White Bones hadn’t left the pavilion for too long, when the zombies wandering in the neighborhood immediately staggered towards the 3 of them.
As Ji Qing Wu shouted, it was as if a whirlwind had headed forward towards the zombies blocking in front of her.
If they did not break through the 12 zombies in front, they wouldn’t be able to reach the girls’ dormitory.
Ji Qingwu’s speed was very quick, since by taking a long stride forward she put some distance away from Yue. Her agility was apparently quite high.
“White Bones! Forward!” Yue ordered White Bones.
Having received the command from Yue, both of White Bones’ eyes shone with corporeal, demonic flames. It quickly moved up like a god of war, rushing past Ji Qingwu towards the group of zombies. Raising his axe and then hacking down like a tornado, White Bones sent a zombie head flying high, foul blood splattering everywhere.
“This skeleton is amazing!”
Ji Qingwu looked at White Bones as he passed her and reached the group of zombies. A bit of surprise flashed in her eyes. She immediately followed up close to the side of White Bones and the Novice Staff in her hand struck like a snake, quickly smashing into the zombie head in front.
Yue soon arrived, and using his Novice Staff, he smashed the head of a zombie crooked to the side.
The trio worked together and soon killed 8 of the 12 zombies blocking their way and rushed past.
Ji Qingwu glanced at the 8 zombie bodies, then continued to dash forward.
The zombies were encircling them: once surrounded, the trio would die there.
“An Apple of Vitality? Great!”
Yue was about to leave when he suddenly saw the vibrant apple falling next to a corpse, so he bent down and picked up the apple before quickly heading forward.
The trio broke through the wave of zombies and killed 6 zombies wandering around, then rushed to the girls’ dormitory.
In front of the girls’ dormitory, 10 of the zombies standing outside quickly turned around and staggered towards the trio.
“What a pity!”
Yue looked at the 10 female zombies, their once young and lively faces now bitten ragged. They looked extremely wretched. Originally, these girls were supposed to enjoy their life as young university students, but now they had become zombies that only knew how to eat human flesh .
White Bones did not have any emotions like Yue; it came forward swinging its ax and chopped off a female zombie head, sending it flying.
Like a whirlwind, Ji Qingwu headed into the group of zombies, using her Novice Staff like a snake to strike the head of a zombie, causing it to be knocked askew.
Yue also penetrated the group, slaying the zombies very neatly.
