Chapter 40 A Sword that Runs Rampant in the Apocalypse (40)

Revised and edited on: Otaku Translation

With thirty followers in tow, Shi Moxuan took the lead under their urging, leaving with his group in a vehicle.
They left behind more than twenty people.

Shi Minzhi was also quite surprised, he did not want Shi Moxuan to leave so soon, after all, the grudges between the two of them had not yet been settled.

Bai Tang gave some instructions to Chen Songzhi and a few others, and then got in the car, glancing at the puppy, Coward.
The little guy had already awakened, and there were some lightning discharges in the cage.

She raised an eyebrow, impressed that he had survived.
It seemed that he had awakened a lightning-based ability, which would be dangerous to others, so she took him out of the cage and held him in her arms.

“I haven't asked you why you saved him?” Shi Minzhi asked.
“He pushed me, and I didn't die, so he can be forgiven?”

Shi Minzhi's eyes turned dark.
If it wasn't for the promise he made earlier, he would have been very happy to see so many people.

“How do I know who he was? You are still alive, the grudges between you two, you resolve it yourselves.
You also don't hope that I kill him ahead of you.” Bai Tang replied.

Shi Minzhi snorted lightly, sliding away in his wheelchair.

The group set up a fire, cooked meals, and played music, trying to dispel the gloomy atmosphere of this apocalyptic world.

Qu Qingzi had already done the statistics and handed it over to Bai Tang.

Li Gai reached into his bag and withdrew a crystal core, knocking it against his palm to absorb its spiritual energy, cultivating his own ability.

Bai Tang walked over, and Li Gai spread out the crystal cores in his bag, “Captain, I forgot to hand these crystal cores over.”

Bai Tang waved her hand, “Where did these crystal cores come from?”

Chen Songzhi replied, “We found them inside the brains of the zombies.
I read a lot of novels, including those set in the apocalypse.
After I awakened my lightning-based ability, I thought that since abilities existed, then crystal cores to cultivate abilities should also exist.
After killing a few zombies, we found them to be true.
Captain, what abilities do you have?”

Bai Tang said, “I don't follow the special ability system.”

She added, “Li Gai, stop messing with those things.
Chen Songzhi, gather everyone and divide them into three groups; those who haven't consumed crystal cores, those who have, and those without abilities.”

Li Gai put the crystal cores away, confused, “Captain, is there something wrong with these?”

Bai Tang's expression grew mysterious, “It's not your fault, most people don't know that this is a conspiracy.”

Li Gai was inexplicably terrified when he heard this.

After the groups were divided, Bai Tang walked over with Coward in her arms.
Those who had consumed crystal cores became anxious.

“Captain, what's the problem with these crystal cores?”

“Yeah, Captain?”

“I only feel that after I consumed them, my abilities have risen significantly.”

Bai Tang asked out of context, “Does anyone recall how long these thick clouds have been covering the sky for?”

“I believe it's been about half a month,” came a voice from the group.

“No, the sky has been gloomy ever since the zombies appeared,” another corrected.

“I don't think we've ever seen a sunny day,” added a third.

Shi Minzhi spoke up, “Three months and twelve days, seventeen hours.”

Bai Tang nodded, showing approval, “Have any of you with abilities ever wondered where they came from? Have you ever considered why the zombies have crystal cores in their brains that you can absorb to cultivate yourselves? Have any of you considered the implications of conscious zombies?”

Bai Tang's questions hit the mark.
Perhaps some had considered these questions before, but in the face of the constant danger and the need to survive and strengthen themselves, no one had thought too deeply about the answers.

Shi Minzhi's long eyelashes fluttered as he spoke, “Cannibalism.”

Bai Tang gave him a look of approval again, impressed by his astute observation.
She didn't expect Shi Minzhi to be so smart.
It was a shame for such a smart person.

“Cannibalism? What do you mean by that?”
