Yue Zhong glanced at the girl, and his eyes shined with a glint, "Bring that woman over here!"
Bai Xiao Sheng chuckled, and shot forwards, sending 2 fists towards the soldiers chasing behind, causing them to fly backward.
The extremely pretty girl ran to Yue Zhong and hugged his legs, pleading profusely, "Save me!! Save me, please!! I'm willing to do anything for you! Save me, please save me!!"
Yue Zhong glanced at this girl, whose face was full of fear, and smiled, "Interesting! I want this woman!"
Liu Cheng, who was still standing by the side, immediately cut in with a sullen expression, "Leader Yue Zhong! This woman is a criminal of our underground city, and had committed a grave sin! She has to die. We're willing to hand you 20 beautiful virgins, so please return her to us. If you insist on having her, it'll only drive a wedge between us."
The beautiful woman looked at Liu Cheng, and her face turned extremely pale, as she hurried to hug Yue Zhong's leg tighter, her body trembling, "Please! Please! I don't want to die!"
"I want this woman. Scram!" Yue Zhong felt something was off, and his brows arched, while he released his powerful killing intent.
Immediately, the elite soldiers beside him whisked out their weapons and aimed it at Liu Cheng.
Liu Cheng's face turned ugly, as he retreated slightly while trying to coax Yue Zhong, "Leader Yue Zhong! We're willing to give all the information on the production of the super soldiers to you. As long as you give us that woman. How about that?"
Yue Zhong was instantly rocked in his heart, as he contemplated seriously. If he could gain the information on the super soldiers, then even ordinary humans had the chance to be enhanced without vying for resources with regards to zombies or Mutant Beasts. He could even make use of the research to enhance himself further.
Compared to the information, this one girl wasn't worth as much.
The young girl immediately shrieked out in panic, "Don't trust him! They're all freaks!! They aren't human! They're all monsters! They are being controlled by some monster!! Quick, escape!! Bring me with you! Please!! Otherwise, it'll be too late! Please take me out of here. I'll be willing to do anything! Quick, let's flee!!"
When Yue Zhong heard those words, he felt a chill overcome his heart, as a sense of foreboding arose. After the world had changed, there were all sorts of organisms all around, if there were even the existence of freaks that could control humans, that would be even more terrifying.
Yue Zhong turned to fix his gaze on Liu Cheng, his eyes suspicious.
Liu Cheng's face turned worse as he chuckled bitterly, "Leader Yue Zhong, don't listen to her! I'm a human, how could I be a monster? She's insane! She's definitely insane! Are you going to trust someone with an unsound mind?"
Yue Zhong patted the girl's head, and pointed at the 2 soldiers that were chasing her and ordered coldly, "Everyone is to prepare for battle! White Bones, go kill that person!"
White Bones immediately shot forwards, with its bone blades slashing down, cutting the soldier in half. Instantly, his brain was split into two, as white brain matter flowed out.
Yue Zhong stared fixedly at the 2 halves of the brain, only to discover a strange worm that was about the size of a palm, with layers of white skin and tentacles. It had been sliced in half, but it was still thrashing about in the juices, it looked utterly terrifying.
Yue Zhong sucked in a breath of cold air, his worst fears had come true. Such a strange worm could actually live in a person's brain, it was obvious that the person was long since under control.
Bai Xiao Sheng also felt a chill when he saw that worm struggling. Although they were elite soldiers that had gone through hundreds of battles, with nothing to fear even against zombies, such a scene was still mortifying to them.
Yue Zhong immediately ordered while still feeling chills down his spine, "Kill them all!!"
These people who had worms in their brains were no longer human. Yue Zhong did not want to leave such existences alive.
There was a flash from Bai Xiao Sheng's hands, and a blade shot towards Liu Cheng like a shooting star.
The ordinary-looking Liu Cheng who seemed scholarly and weak suddenly became enraged, with his eyes turning bloodshot, and his body expanding to twice its size. His clothes were torn, and veins bulged everywhere. His skin became a bright red, and he emitted a terrifying violent aura.
Facing that incoming blade, Liu Cheng just raised his massive right arm to block in front of him.
The blade could not penetrate through the right arm, it just pierced the skin about 2 cm deep, and it got stuck. However, even then, there was not a drop of blood that was spilled.
Bai Xiao Sheng's eyes were filled with shock, and he immediately activated his ability, pushing his speed to the limit, and transformed into a specter as he slashed out at Liu Cheng. Instantly, there were 6 new wounds on Liu Cheng's body.
Liu Cheng unleashed an inhuman roar towards the skies.
With that loud howl, it seemed that every single male and female inside the large hall began to shine with a bright red glow, and their bodies all started to transform. Some grew feelers like cockroaches while others had front limbs like that of a praying mantis. There were some who had powerful hind legs like kangaroos, and others had feelers like ants. They all had the same characteristics though, which were the bright red eyes, and their bodies seemed to expand with powerful veins bulging out.
They charged forwards, rushing towards Yue Zhong and his party.
The girl screamed when she saw them, "Careful! Don't get caught by them! Otherwise, they will implant you with a worm as well, and you'll become just like them!"
Yue Zhong pulled out his Black Tooth Blade, and with a single slash, 3 of the transformed people instantly became sliced corpses.
From the heads of those killed by Yue Zhong, 3 fat and strange worms appeared, which quickly slithered towards Yue Zhong. Their speed was 7 times as fast as a person, and ordinary people would definitely not be able to escape from them.
Yue Zhong saw them and his blade danced again, chopping them up.
One soldier slashed at one of the transformed woman, who suddenly opened her mouth wide, and a fat worm flew out, landing on the face of the soldier.
The fat and white worm swiftly wriggled its body and squirmed through the soldier's nose.
When the soldier saw this horrifying scene, he immediately screamed out in terror, "Ah!! Save me!! Save me!!"
One other soldier heard his cry and kicked the transformed woman he was entangled with. He rushed forward anxiously and asked, "Ah Ming! What's wrong!!"
The soldier Ah Ming suddenly stopped thrashing, his face turned into an evil mask, and with a sudden bloating of his arm, the Tang Replica Sword swung towards his concerned friend.
Caught unprepared and with his guard down, the anxious soldier's head was lopped off cleanly by his old comrade.
After Ah Ming slaughtered his friend, his eyes also turned red, and his body started to expand with his veins bulging. With an angry roar, he suddenly burst forth with a speed that was way beyond his original 8-times Agility, slashing at his other comrades.
The comrade hurried to defend himself while roaring in shock, "Ah Ming! Have you gone mad?!"
As the blades clashed with each other, the defending soldier was kicked violently by the mind-controlled Ah Ming, and he slammed into a wall. He spat out a large amount of blood, his internal organs exploding from the impact, and he died instantly.
Ah Ming already possessed 15 times Strength of a normal person, after the transformation, he could unleash 27 times Strength. This was a level that could only be reached by a high-level Strength-based Evolver with powerful equipment.
After being controlled, Ah Ming's entire stature became terrifying, and he became much stronger.
"Lei Ming had been controlled! Bai Xiao Sheng, go take everyone and get out of here! Take care not to let any of those freaks near you, I'll cover you guys!!" Yue Zhong's eyes flashed coldly and he barked out.
There were multiple transformed humans that poured out from every part of the underground city, each of them charging over with bloodshot eyes.
Yue Zhong had brought along elite soldiers, and it would not be an issue to slaughter all these transformed people. However, he did not know exactly how many such freaks there were, and he was focused only on getting out, otherwise, all his elite soldiers would perish.
"Go!" Bai Xiao Sheng did not bother with any unnecessary pleasantries, and threw Liu Cheng aside, as he led the rest of the Evolvers to kill their way out.
One of them had the ability to manipulate winds, and his pupils narrowed, as a terrifying hurricane appeared, blowing the transformed humans out of Bai Xiao Sheng's path. Those who weren't blown away were instantly pounced upon by the rest and they utilized all their abilities to kill those freaks instantly.
