Chapter 502: Roadblock!
"You?" Yue Zhong's pupils narrowed as he stared at Nangong Bing Yun for quite a while.
Nangong Bing Yun stood straight, accentuating her figure that was full of vitality and curves. For power, she would not hesitate to use her body in exchange.
Yue Zhong could detect a strong ambition in her eyes, and he flat-out refused: "No! You may have the ability, but your qualifications and contributions are lacking."
Yue Zhong had considered Chen Yao to become the leader of the Vietnam district because she had been the earliest to follow him to Vietnam. Furthermore, to support him, she had done her best to raise troops, resulting in soldiers like Gan Tao and Pan Jin Yong. These people were also willing to die for her.
Of course, amongst his current subordinates, handing the huge responsibility to Nangong Bing Yun was not impossible, however, he had no current plans to do so.
Nangong Bing Yun was able to round up over 200 Vietnamese survivors to lend their hand to his cause within a short amount of time, forming a decent-sized power. Her abilities were truly astounding, very few women were as decisive and intelligent as her. Even Chen Yao might not match her in this area.
However, there were plenty of capable people, and Yue Zhong was still unfamiliar with Nangong Bing Yun, and he was not willing to just casually hand her a position of power.
To Yue Zhong, he would like to utilize capable people, but more importantly, they had to be loyal subordinates. Otherwise, this establishment that he had painstakingly obtained would become a ripe peach for others to pluck.
Nangong Bing Yun had a look of bitterness as she retreated behind Chen Yao, with a single: "Yes!"
Yue Zhong then thought for a few moments, before asking Ming Jia Jia: "Jia Jia! What about you?"
Ming Jia Jia had fought alongside Yue Zhong all the way to Guang Xi, having been with him almost every step of the way. Her position amongst the Chinese survivors in Vietnam was also high. If she was to run the cities, nobody would object.
Ming Jia Jia looked at Yue Zhong with those bright eyes of hers, replying as though she couldn't bear to: "If that is Master's wish, Jia Jia would definitely listen, and do a good job! However, Jia Jia hopes to stay by your side, and pour tea for you!"
If she became the leader of a base, then Ming Jia Jia would not be able to stay by Yue Zhong's side. She had to run the affairs of the Vietnamese cities. Everyone had different ambitions. Ming Jia Jia preferred staying by Yue Zhong's side as a maid compared to running a city.
Nangong Bing Yun looked at the loli lying in Yue Zhong's arms with a hint of envy. She had proposed to take up the role and was declined, but that little girl had obtained it so easily. This caused her to be filled with jealousy.
Yue Zhong rubbed her little head and said: "Then you just have to stay here for a year. After that, I will send someone to replace you."
Yue Zhong had already laid down the regulatory frameworks and basic outline of how things were going to be run. Ming Jia Jia just had to be here to ensure it all ran smoothly, and there wouldn't be any major problems.
Currently, in the north of Vietnam, Yue Zhong was basically the biggest. Furthermore, he could transport resources from Guang Xi in. The VPDC that was stuck between Thai Nguyen and the zombies in Hanoi could not compare at all.
Ming Jia Jia replied softly: "En!"
Chen Yao hesitated a while before asking: "Are you returning to Guang Xi?"
"En! I want to go and do some preparations for the future clash in Yan Zhou!" Yue Zhong nodded in reply.
Yan Zhou was one of the largest industrial cities in the Guang Xi region, and it had the largest steel factories and military plants. If they could obtain Yan Zhou, then Yue Zhong's establishments would gain a huge upgrade in power. Hence, his entire attention was going to be focused there.
The number of zombies in Yan Zhou's direction numbered at least 3 million. At the same time, between Gui Ning City and Yan Zhou, there was Bin Qi City. There were at least another 2 million zombies there. It wasn't going to a simple matter of taking over Yan Zhou.
Chen Yao's expression turned resolute as she spoke up: "I'll follow you to Guang Xi!"
Yue Zhong eyed Chen Yao and nodded slightly: "Fine!"
Nangong Bing Yan immediately stepped forwards with a strange glint in her eyes, saying: "Please allow me to join you as well, I want to fight alongside you!"
Nangong Bing Yun was an intelligent woman. She knew that the old order of society was gone, and things were different. Only by accumulating enough merits would she be able to gain a footing and a high position in this new order.
"Good!" Yue Zhong eyed Nangong Bing Yun and agreed to her request. This woman was ambitious and capable, however, with him around, she would not be able to overstep her boundaries.
Out on the vast plains, which was covered by snow, a military jeep, an IFV, a fuel truck, a bus, as well as 10 Humvees drove along the road.
Out of the blue, 3 survivors leapt out from the side, and knelt in front of the fleet of armored vehicles, their eyes showing hints of despair.
The jeep at the front of the fleet came to a stop, and out stepped Yue Zhong, Chen Yao, Xin Jia Rou and Ning Yu Xin.
Yue Zhong eyed the 3 survivors and frowned: "Who are you people?"
"Sir! Please, please help us! Please!! If you don't, I'm willing to kneel till I die here!" One of the survivors began to kowtow and plead.
"If you want death, I can grant you that wish. Don't use it to threaten me!" Yue Zhong became irritated, and pulled out a handgun to fire a shot at that survivor.
Peng! A single bullet pierced the ground in front of the survivor, leaving a hole.
Seeing how forceful Yue Zhong was, the 3 survivors trembled, and did not dare move in fear.
Yue Zhong eyed them coldly and barked: "What happened? Speak properly!"
The leader of the trio began to kowtow as tears flowed: "Sir, we are survivors from Bin Qi City. We had been hiding nearby in order to survive. However, just a few days prior, a number of bandits charged into our base and began pillaging and killing. We barely managed to escape, and hope that someone can come help us. Our families are still within the base! As long as Sir can help us, we are willing to dedicate our entire lives to you!"
When Yue Zhong heard it, he knew what sort of thing had happened. Forcefully conquering establishments was a common thing in the current world, and most bigger factions would want to swallow up the smaller factions.
Yue Zhong's icy gaze swept past all three survivors, and under the intense pressure, one of them couldn't bear the stress and lowered his head.
Yue Zhong looked towards the direction that the 3 survivors had jumped out from, noting that it was all snow-covered ground. There was a small valley beyond, where little houses could be seen at the foot of the hill.
Yue Zhong signaled, and Bai Xiao Sheng and Li Shi Min shot forwards like arrows, bringing 8 other experts with them.
After being baptized through countless slaughter, Li Shi Min's potential had been released fully. He had already become a formidable expert, and even if it was a kid who wielded a weapon in front of him, he would not hesitate to kill the child without mercy. His Explosive Arrows could wreck even an armored vehicle totally from a distance of 500m. His combat prowess was truly astonishing.
Seeing those soldiers running off to the distance, the middle-aged survivor who had been crying had a change in expression, turning into one of uneasiness.
In a forest near those small buildings, there were 200 militants hiding, each of them wielding different melee weapons. They looked at the 10 men running over, and their faces turned.
One slightly tanned man, with a white tiger tattoo approached another burly man who was bald, and asked: "What do we do Boss? Shall we act?"
The baldy looked at Bai Xiao Sheng, Li Shi Min and the other soldiers with hint of greed towards their equipment, and said: "Do it!! Kill them, then we shall quickly disperse!"
Bai Xiao Sheng, Li Shi Min and the other soldiers were basically armed to the teeth. Each of them wielded a .05 submachine gun, a Raven Combat Uniform, 6 hand-grenades, 6 magazine rounds, Tang Replica Blades, 3-edged knives and Type 2 Mutant Beasts hide. They were really covered head to toe in valuable items. With those amazing items, each of their combat abilities could be exhibited to the extreme.
As for the baldy, amongst his 200 subordinates, only 18 had rifles, 16 had handguns, as well as 200 rounds. The majority relied on melee weapons, and when they saw this group of soldiers with decent equipment, their eyes turned red with greed.
Bai Xiao Sheng and Li Shi Min were experienced fighters. They proceeded with caution, and searched the area for enemies effectively and efficiently. Finally, with the help of one of the soldiers with the [Bio-Sense] ability, they were led closer to the forest with the militants.
The moment Bai Xiao Sheng came near the forest, he activated his Second Order High Speed Movement, and instantly, his movement speed exceeded that of a Type 2 Lightning, shooting through the forest like a spectre. With a flash of his blade, one of the militants had his head decapitated.
Taking down a militant in one move, Bai Xiao Sheng did not stop there as he flashed about, firing his gun, and a number of militants were shot full of holes before they even had the chance to react.
The baldy saw how easily Bai Xiao Sheng had killed over 20 of his subordinates and his face turned pale and his back broke out in cold sweat. He bellowed: "Do it!! Kill them!! Only then will we live!!"
Under that command, the militants began to charge at Bai Xiao Sheng with their melee weapons.
Only to hear multiple gunshots, as the militants were sprayed with bullets, and they slumped to the floor.
"Surrender! Or Die!" Right as the baldy was thinking of escaping, a sharp blade stopped at his neck, with Bai Xiao Sheng's cold hiss sounding behind him.
