Chapter 331: Is This Your Special Ability?
Translator: Liu_Kaixuan Editor: Valvrave
The next morning…
A pickup truck, following two military SUVs, entered the villa area.
"So fast?" Jiang Liushi looked out from his minibus.
Last night, he slept in the minibus, but he felt very comfortable. He was the only one in the minibus so he could do anything he wanted. At the same time, he could scrutinize the control panel's options.
The MCV had provided him with many advantages and help, especially when he didn't have the power to fight on his own. In other words, the MCV was the only form of protection he had to survive.
Even now, Jiang Liushi's ability could only reach its maximum capacity in combination with the MCV. Frankly speaking, Starseed was Jiang Liushi's special ability. However, with zombies and beasts' fast evolution rate, he felt uncomfortable. What's more, Fallen City's emergence indicated that paranormals also had the ability to acquire more power.
As a matter of fact, these people were even more dangerous than those monsters. As a result, Jiang Liushi had to carefully plan how to develop the MCV in the future.
At that time, the military vehicles arrived at his villa.
Xia Xun walked down from her car, but she didn't enter the villa right away. Thinking that she had to meet Jiang Liushi, she began to feel uncomfortable. She didn't know how to talk with Jiang Liushi. After a few seconds, she coughed gently and then revealed a smile.
Just then, the minibus' door suddenly opened, and Jiang Liushi's figure appeared before the entrance. "I'm here."
Xia Xun was suddenly shocked. Jiang Liushi had seen her awkward gestures!
"Is everything okay?" Jiang Liushi asked.
Xia Xun recovered at once and answered, "Yes. We found everything you needed in the warehouse. We lacked in quantities of a certain material, but we removed it from an abandoned building." That pickup truck was loaded with all the materials.
"If it's inconvenient for you to move all these, then rest assured, I've brought a few people to help you move them wherever you need to," said Xia Xun. And then she gradually regained her calmness.
"No, thank you." Jiang Liushi just gave a glance to that pickup truck. And then Ying came out and walked into the minibus.
Xia Xun was curious about what Jiang Liushi wanted to do. But then she saw a robotic arm stretching out of the minibus.
Although the officers and movers' faces wore a terrified expression, they still felt that it was an amazing sight. The thin robotic arm was simple but extremely flexible.
"Is this what you said...the special ability?" Xia Xun asked. Obviously, she hadn't believed him at first, but now…
Jiang Liushi just nodded because he didn't want to get into details.
"Well, Captain Jiang," Xia Xun said again. "My grandfather and I are very grateful to you because of your sincere help, so my grandfather decided to send a team to accompany you to northern Jiangsu. Their duty is to escort your team, but also to find information about the general situation along the way. You can command them however you see fit."
Hearing her words, Jiang Liushi frowned. And then he asked, "Investigate? For what?"
"Although we can communicate through radio broadcasts with the major safety areas, what we know about their situation is limited. You can ake Star Base City as an example. To be honest, the number of mutant zombies and mutant beasts has been increasing at an alarming rate…" Xia Xun looked solemn while explaining.
"Captain Jiang, you should be aware that Shenhai Island is under the attack of mutant earthworms. In this terrible world, the safety areas are just isolated territories created to protect the elite and some other survivors. Although we thought they'd protect us, boundless zombies and mutant beasts are running wild out of the walls. Once they attack, nobody can imagine the outcome. We want to investigate, and if possible find other areas and develop them."
Xia Xun paused for a minute and then she said, "You should also know that Shenhai Island has suffered great losses because of a large-scale sacrifice… We received some news today… General Zhang was gravely injured, and his remaining soldiers brought him back to Senhai Island."
"Injured?" Hearing the news, Jiang Liushi frowned. He admired that General Zhang.
"Captain Jiang, you can rest assured that the team that'll accompany you will obey your every order, but they won't follow you to the end of your trip. After all, we can't get that far without the necessary preparations," Xia Xun said.
"If you encounter any mutant beasts on the road or something else, and whether your team kills it, or its killed by the combined effort of both parties, its carcass and everything else will belong to you, Captain Jiang." Seeing that Jiang Liushi remained silent, Xia Xun added.
"Good." Jiang Liushi said, "Inform your team to wait for us at the gate tomorrow morning, that's when we'll leave." All the materials had been carried down, so he did not want to chat with Xia Xun further. He bid his farewell and returned to the minibus.
Xia Xun took a step forward, but the minibus' door closed before she could even speak. Looking at this closed door, Xia Xun really wanted to shoot at it. She hadn't finished talking!
In her mind, Jiang Liushi was not as bad as she had thought when she first met him. Unfortunately, she thought it was all an illusion! They were the same age, but how could he be so cold with a lady!?
"Well, he promised, afterward you should act together with Shi Ying Squad," Xia Xun went back and said to an officer. And then she left angrily.
"Why is she so angry?" The officer asked.
"Be quiet! Didn't you see that Jiang Liushi was the one who annoyed her?" Another officer said.
"That fellow is very arrogant..."
