Chapter 19

Super Ruins!

“Alright, guys, let’s rest!”

Tang Zhen called out and took out a lot of food. After opening it all, he placed it on a flat stone in the cave and used it as a table.

The little girl who was playing with the rag doll saw the roasted chicken, sausages, canned food, bread, and other food on the stone. Her beautiful big eyes immediately widened and stared intently.

Tang Zhen found it funny when he saw this. He tore off a greasy chicken drumstick and handed it over. The little girl immediately wolfed it down after taking it.

“So sumptuous!

Qian Long clicked his tongue and gave Tang Zhen a thumbs up, his eyes filled with praise. After all, ordinary people couldn’t get this food. He had never even seen some of this food before.

The impatient clean Big Bear had long started eating a chicken. However, as he wolfed it down, his gaze kept stopping on the delicious food.

The few of them sat around the rock and started to eat together. Although they had been busy all night, the sumptuous food also increased their appet.i.te. In the end, the food was eaten clean. Even the remaining chicken bones were picked up by Big Bear and chewed. He ate them with an intoxicated expression.

Tang Zhen couldn’t stand it anymore. He took out some hunger-resistant compressed biscuits and handed them to Big Bear.

After eating and drinking their fill, everyone, who had been busy the whole night, spread out the blanket and found a random corner in the cave to rest. Tang Zhen also felt a little tired. After lying down, he quickly fell asleep.

When he woke up again, it was already afternoon. Murong Ziyan had already woken up and was packing the cave. At the same time, she was arranging the daily necessities Tang Zhen had brought.

The little girl, who didn’t lack sleep, also woke up and was busy with her sister.

Qian Long was sitting at the entrance of the cave with a weapon in his arms. He looked at the wanderers pa.s.sing by from time to time.

During this period, there were occasionally wanderer teams entering and leaving the cave area. They also discovered that the cave where Tang Zhen lived was inhabited and looked over from time to time.

Tang Zhen walked in front of Qian Long and sat down to look at the scenery outside for a while. Then, he asked Qian Long, “I want to find an opportunity to enter the nearby building to take a look. Do you have any good ideas?”

Qian Long lowered his head and thought for a moment. Then, he said to Tang Zhen, “You can register to partic.i.p.ate in the exploration team and caravan of the building. When you reach a certain level, you will have the chance to enter the building.”

“How long will it take to get to that level?”

Tang Zhen frowned.

“It’s hard to say, but it’ll be at least three to five years.”

Qian Long said.

“No, it’s too long. Is there any other way?”

Tang Zhen shook his head.

“Either you have an invitation from the building or you obtain the qualifications to be a resident. Otherwise, it’s really difficult to enter.”

Qian Long shrugged, indicating that this was all he could think of.

“Invitation, what invitation?”

Tang Zhen was stunned and asked.

“The building holds an auction every year. At that time, they will send invitations to the rich and powerful wanderers nearby to invite them to enter the building to partic.i.p.ate in the auction…”

At this point, Qian Long suddenly looked at Tang Zhen and said in a serious tone, “Didn’t you want to build a building? According to what I know, in the auctions of the building, there are occasionally cornerstones and brain beads above level six!”

Tang Zhen was overjoyed when he heard that and hurriedly asked, “What exactly goes on there? Tell me in detail?”

Qian Long sighed and said in a helpless tone, “You also know that I’m just an ordinary wanderer. How can I know the details of the auction?”

Tang Zhen was slightly disappointed when he heard that, but since he already knew that there was something he wanted in the auction in the building, he had to find an opportunity to get an invitation and enough beads.

However, the most important thing now was to kill monsters and level up as soon as possible. He couldn’t wait to see how much his strength could increase after leveling up.

Tang Zhen made up his mind. Today, he would lead Qian Long and Big Bear to kill monsters in the wilderness to level up.

Seeing Big Bear sitting foolishly at the side, Tang Zhen suddenly recalled the equipment he had prepared for him. He walked to the corner of the cave and brought out a s.h.i.+eld made of steel plate and a large steel mace!

The main body of the mace was a steel pipe about 1.7 meters long. It was covered in sharp three-edged steel spikes, and its lethality was quite shocking.

Tang Zhen had tried it earlier. He had to lift it with both hands. Only a monster like Big Bear could use such a heavy mace.

Big Bear held a s.h.i.+eld in his left hand and a mace in his right. A few dark thick iron chains were wrapped around his body. The big bear’s current appearance was very powerful. As long as he didn’t speak, he could definitely intimidate most wanderers.

When Qian Long and the others saw the armed big bear, they also sighed repeatedly. They imagined that this guy would use these weapons to kill monsters. That would definitely be a rather b.l.o.o.d.y scene.

After the three of them were ready, Tang Zhen instructed Murong Ziyan to stay at home. The three of them left the cave and entered the wilderness.

The first few times he pa.s.sed by the wilderness, Tang Zhen had always been careful, afraid of encountering monsters. But this time, he hoped that the monsters would appear quickly, so that he could level up earlier.

However, during the day, there were very few monsters around the wanderer market. Even if there were sporadic low-level monsters, they would be killed by the guards and the wanderer teams entering and leaving here before their brains were dug out.

After searching for nearly an hour, the three of them finally encountered two low-level monsters and were easily killed by Tang Zhen.

“This won’t do. Can we find a place with more monsters?”

Tang Zhen asked the slightly bored Qian Long beside him.

“There are many monsters near the wild building, but most of them are low-level monsters. Then, there’s the monster gathering place. It’s usually led by high-level monsters that occupy a large area. There are rich resources inside, but there are thousands of monsters.”

Qian Long took out the military bottle Tang Zhen gave him and took a sip of water. Then, he pointed in a direction and continued, “I heard that very far away, there are even monsters who established a building and enslaved a large number of humans.”

Tang Zhen also looked in the direction Qian Long pointed and said slowly in a calm tone, “If one day, my strength is strong enough, I’ll give you an army and let you lead the way to save them. How about that?”

Qian Long was silent for a moment, but he shook his head and said, “Unless it’s related to benefits, no one will do such a thing. After all, in the wilderness, the most worthless thing is the lives of wanderers.”

Tang Zhen paid attention to the commotion on the map while chatting with Qian Long. The three of them were heading to the ruins of a nearby wild building. It was a huge ruin that had appeared many years ago. It was said that the residents from a few nearby buildings formed an exploration team and obtained many good things from it.

Now, the wild buildings had become a hunting ground for the wanderers to hunt monsters. Because from time to time, wanderers would dig out valuable items like steel, smoke, and alcohol from the ruins, that place also became a place frequented by wanderers.

As they walked along the small path in the wilderness, there were no monsters hara.s.sing them along the way. However, the walking process was very tiring and boring, and it consumed a lot of physical strength. After Tang Zhen walked for a while, he couldn’t help but ask, “Buddy, how long are we going to walk for?”

Qian Long was expressionless. “We’re almost there.”

Tang Zhen shook his head and wondered if he should get a car. This would be much more convenient when traveling.

After walking for a while, Qian Long suddenly said, “We’re here.”

Tang Zhen took out his binoculars to observe and saw a large area of collapsed building ruins a kilometer ahead. From time to time, figures would flash.

When Tang Zhen walked in front of the ruins, he was shocked by the scale of the ruins.

Looking up from a high place, he could see broken and collapsed buildings everywhere in a radius of several kilometers. However, even so, he couldn’t see the edge because the sky and surroundings were filled with a faint gray mist, blocking Tang Zhen’s vision.

“Oh my, how big is this ruin?”

Tang Zhen looked at it for a while and lowered his head to ask Qian Long.

“I don’t know. No one can explain it clearly, but I heard that someone once used a month to cross these ruins and even obtained a lot of good things!”

Qian Long said calmly and started to organize his equipment.

He held the bow in his left hand and held three sharp arrows at the same time. There was also one on the bowstring.

Tang Zhen nodded silently and jumped down from the high ground. After taking out his weapon, the three of them started to advance into the ruins.

As he advanced, he listened carefully to the surrounding movements and observed the map in front of him.

After walking less than a hundred meters, Tang Zhen suddenly realized that the map displayed an active target. It was dozens of meters in front of them. On careful look, it was surprisingly an earthy yellow monster!

Seeing this, Tang Zhen didn’t hesitate and immediately rushed in the direction of the monster. Qian Long, who was at the side, was slightly stunned when he saw this, but he still called Big Bear to follow. In the end, just as he walked around the ruins in front of him, he saw Tang Zhen slash down a monster that was already heavily injured previously.

“Boss, how did you discover the monster here?” Qian Long asked in confusion.

According to Qian Long’s understanding of Tang Zhen, his life and battle experience in the wilderness were very lacking. If he didn’t discover this very hidden monster in front of him, Tang Zhen shouldn’t have discovered it either.

But in fact, Tang Zhen had discovered the monster before him and killed it cleanly.

Qian Long had many doubts about Tang Zhen, but he was smart enough not to ask. In terms of battle, he also clearly sensed Tang Zhen’s improvement. This was a very good sign.

In this world where the strong preyed on the weak, only by being strong could one ensure survival. The stronger the master he followed, the more benefits he would obtain.

After obtaining the bead, the three of them continued forward. Tang Zhen would still discover the traces of the monster first and quickly kill it.

After entering the ruins for nearly a kilometer, Tang Zhen, who had just killed a monster, felt his body suddenly stiffen. Then, a numb heat spread throughout his body. At this moment, he suddenly had a feeling that no matter what he did, he could use all the strength in his body.

This was the strength of a level-one person. He could completely erupt with the full strength of an adult!

Tang Zhen felt that his entire body was filled with strength. He waved his saber excitedly. The joy of using all his strength made him feel a little dizzy. However, after only swinging more than ten times, he felt a little out of breath. When he stopped after feeling that something was wrong, his body was actually so sore that he couldn’t even stand steadily.

“d.a.m.n it, what’s going on?”

Tang Zhen sat on the ground and asked Qian Long, who was snickering at the side, with a depressed expression.

“After advancing to level one, everyone will have the feeling that they can shatter steel with a punch. Then, they can’t help but vent. The result is that their physical strength will be overdrawn, just like you now!”

Tang Zhen rolled his eyes and scolded jokingly, “d.a.m.n, you deliberately didn’t say it because you wanted to see me make a fool of myself, right?”

“I was even worse than you back then because I broke through in battle. In the end, after killing that group of bandits, I was so exhausted that I lay on the corpse for a few hours before I could barely stand up.”

Qian Long said slowly in a calm voice, but there was a hint of imperceptible loneliness in his tone.
