Chapter 20

Exploration Team and Ghoul!

If one released all his strength in a short period of time, the price would be that one’s entire body would be exhausted. In serious cases, one wouldn’t even have the strength to move his fingers.

Since the current Tang Zhen was already unable to travel, the three of them found a clean and hidden place to sit down and rest. At the same time, they took out food and water to fill their stomachs. In order to make it easier to carry, Tang Zhen only brought compressed biscuits, mineral water, and other portable food this time.

With his weak body, Tang Zhen was not in the mood to eat at all. Instead, Qian Long and Big Bear ate with relish.

After what had just happened, the current Tang Zhen recalled Qian Long’s movements when they faced the enemy and gained some understanding in his heart. Qian Long’s movements were precise control of strength. He used his strength perfectly and definitely hadn’t wasted a single bit of strength.

This level of power control was definitely not something that could be completed in a day or two. Therefore, Tang Zhen guessed that Qian Long’s strength was probably close to level two, or even level two.

Of course, if Qian Long didn’t say anything, he wouldn’t ask.

After taking a look at his personal information, Tang Zhen confirmed that he had already advanced to level one. If he wanted to advance to level two battle power, he had to personally kill ten level two monsters.

This request seemed simple, but it was actually quite difficult to make a thin line.

The battle power of a level-two monster was far from what a level-one monster could compare to. A level-two monster could face three level-one monsters without being at a disadvantage. When it erupted, it could even instantly kill three level-one monsters.

If Tang Zhen, who had yet to advance, encountered a level-two monster, he would definitely have no chance of winning if he didn’t have a suitable weapon.

This was the difference in level. There was no room for carelessness.

After resting for about an hour, Tang Zhen finally recovered most of his physical strength. The three of them prepared to continue exploring.

Just as he walked out of his hiding place, Tang Zhen suddenly discovered a group of people appearing on the map, making him feel a trace of vigilance. After softly indicating to Qian Long and Big Bear to be careful, he saw a wanderer exploration team coming out from behind a ruin.

There were a total of ten members of this wanderer exploration team. All of them were wearing simple armor and holding swords, spears, and other weapons. Unlike ordinary emaciated wanderers, the members of this exploration team clearly didn’t lack food. Everyone looked very good.

After this exploration team discovered Tang Zhen and the other two, they also revealed vigilant expressions. They stared at Tang Zhen and the other two intently and stared at Big Bear for the longest time.

Obviously, the huge size and ferocious weapons and equipment of Big Bear clearly told the other party that this guy was definitely not to be trifled with! The appearance of Qian Long and Tang Zhen was far from as shocking as the big bear, so they were not taken seriously.

The leader of this exploration team was a strong man with a full beard. He was nearly 1.9 meters tall and held a fire axe in his hand. He was wearing a chain armor, and six sharp short javelins were inserted in the leather tube on his back.

When the strong man stood on the spot silently, he gave off the feeling of a wolf or tiger, and his body emitted a faint murderous aura.

Tang Zhen looked at this strong man’s aura and estimated that his battle power was at least level two, and he was a character who killed without blinking.

At the thought of this, Tang Zhen couldn’t help but become even more nervous. He couldn’t help but reach for the hiding place of the pistol.

The two-word team faced each other silently. No one made any unnecessary movements, and the atmosphere was slightly nervous.

A moment later, the bearded man turned around and walked towards the ruins. Before turning around, he looked at Tang Zhen and the other two and nodded, but his gaze was as sharp as a knife.

Tang Zhen felt that this gaze was like a wolf. Once this person encountered prey that tempted him, he would definitely swallow his prey without hesitation.

Cruel plundering between teams often happened in the wilderness. The weak were always bullied. In this situation, it was already very good to be able to stay alive.

However, this team didn’t attack Tang Zhen and the other two. Perhaps it saw that they didn’t gain anything from the periphery of the ruins, or perhaps the bearded man sensed danger from the three of them, so he didn’t act rashly.

This was the final outcome. Both parties pa.s.sed each other without a word, and these people’s goal was also deep in the ruins.

Tang Zhen’s expression was gloomy. He stared at the direction these people went in silence. Then, he gently waved and continued forward. Qian Long and Big Bear followed closely behind.

As he stepped on the street filled with the debris of broken buildings, he felt a faint sense of familiarity. Tang Zhen tried to distinguish the source of the ruins. Unfortunately, the remaining words on the buildings didn’t belong to any language he knew, but the architectural style was familiar.

After crossing the square with the strange fountain stone statue, a huge building appeared in front of the three of them. It looked to be 70,000 to 80,000 square meters. Although the appearance of this building looked extremely broken, it still revealed an extremely majestic aura.

It looked like a huge bell tower, but the surface was full of reliefs of various strange creatures. More than 50 meters from the ground, five suspended platforms stretched out at a 90-degree angle.

At the highest point of the building, there was also a relief of a strange creature, but half of it had been destroyed. From the looks of it, it should be a strange creature that looked like a human, but it had two huge pairs of wings.

Tang Zhen looked at the spectacular building in front of him and sighed. However, Qian Long stated that the cornerstone of this building had been taken away many years ago. The building built with this cornerstone had long become very powerful.

Cornerstones were also divided into levels. The better the cornerstone, the greater the potential of the building.

It was said that the characteristic of the cornerstone in front of him was that it was large and had a strange appearance. When it was first built, it had an area of 40,000 square meters, ten times the size of an ordinary new building!

If one wanted a building to reach this size, one would need to upgrade many times to reach it. A huge price needed to be paid.

After secretly envying it in his heart, Tang Zhen decided to enter this building to take a look.

Step by step, they stepped onto the broken steps. The dark door looked like a human-eating ferocious beast. Tang Zhen couldn’t help but grip the saber in his hand tightly. At the same time, the three of them turned on their head lamps.

The inside of this huge building was pitch-black. After the strong light from outside entered, for some reason, it suddenly became extremely dark. When their feet gently stepped on the ground, there were waves of echoes, making the inside of the building seem even more silent and empty.

Being in such an environment made one’s scalp tingle involuntarily. It felt like there were thorns on their backs.

Vaguely, Tang Zhen seemed to feel a chill, as if some monster was watching him in the darkness. However, observing through the map, it showed that his surroundings were pitch-black, and he couldn’t see anything at all.

This was the disadvantage of the primary map. Although it could also show the situation within a hundred meters in the room, one would still be confused when encountering such a pitch-black environment. One couldn’t see what was on the map at all.

In response to this situation, Tang Zhen only needed to add a plug-in in the map. That way, the map could directly penetrate the obstruction of the building and show the enemy as a red light spot.

However, the download price of this kind of plug-in required a lot of gold coins. The current Tang Zhen couldn’t afford it.

Compared to Tang Zhen, who had an uneasy feeling, Qian Long’s movements were even faster and more straightforward. He directly drew his bow and shot an arrow at a certain spot in the darkness without hesitation.

“Swoos.h.!.+”

This arrow was as fast as the wind and disappeared in an instant.

“Ah…!”

A scream came, and then a dark green light suddenly flashed in the dark area in the distance. This light looked like the eyeball of some creature, flickering with madness and cruelty.

“Holy c.r.a.p, what the h.e.l.l is this?”

Tang Zhen was shocked. He instinctively took out his pistol and aimed in that direction, preparing to shoot if there were any movements. At the same time, a set of information suddenly popped up in front of him.

[Blue-eyed Ghoul, level two. Likes to eat rotten meat and is extremely afraid of the sun. Its physical strength is ordinary, but its bite power is astonis.h.i.+ng.]

So this monster was called a blue-eyed ghoul. Judging from the number of eyes, there were probably more than ten!

Tang Zhen’s heart skipped a beat when he saw this. A level-two monster could erupt with the extreme strength of two adults. In addition, there were many of them, and if he wasn’t careful, he might lose his life.

At this moment, he couldn’t help but feel a little regretful. Wouldn’t it be better to stay in the camp and do business to exchange for brains? Why take the risk!

However, it was useless to think about this now. He had to think of a way to resolve the crisis in front of him.

“Let’s retreat slowly. They don’t dare to appear in the sun!”

Tang Zhen roared loudly. The three of them immediately retreated when they heard that. However, at this moment, the group of blue-eyed ghouls suddenly pounced at the three of them. In the blink of an eye, they had already crossed half the distance.

Tang Zhen finally saw the appearance of these ghouls clearly. They were really ugly. They crawled on the ground, their bodies covered in abscesses and emitting a rotten smell. Their huge mouths were filled with fangs, and a big tongue hung outside their mouths.

“Do it!”

As soon as these words fell, Tang Zhen had already fired. The strength of his powerful arm allowed him to hold the gun extremely steadily. This gun was aimed at the head of the blue-eyed ghoul at the front. The bullet that left the barrel instantly drilled into the center of the ghoul’s brows!
