Chapter 103: Spare Me, Big Brother
At this moment, Su Hao’s overall combat power was not much different from his previous life, especially with several commonly used rune drawings at his fingertips. Even without the assistance of the golden thread worm/planaria, the impact on him wasn’t significant; it only required a longer activation time.
However, for battles that could be resolved in just one round, the impact could be disregarded.
Su Hao wrapped himself in a “barrier” just in case and prepared the “strong light” rune. With a step, he shot towards the “Rampager.”
“So fast!” The “Rampager” narrowed his pupils, closely watching Su Hao’s figure.
It was precisely because of Su Hao’s speed that the “Rampager” relaxed his guard.
Usually, those with high speed had lower attack power. He had immense confidence in his own defense. What could the opponent use to break his defense? That worn-out little knife in his hand?
It was laughable!
He raised his fist and aimed it at Su Hao’s dark figure. With the densely packed steel spikes on his glove, one punch would be enough to end the battle.
Su Hao raised his left hand wide open.
Suddenly, a blinding white light burst forth, turning the surroundings into daylight. The “Rampager,” in the darkness, was severely affected by the intense flash, instantly losing his vision. He let out a low, miserable cry, closed his eyes, and his fist lost its target.
But he still swung forward confidently because he believed in his defense!
“Slip Shadow Step!”
Su Hao agilely dodged the punch, circling around to the “Rampager’s” side and rear.
The actual martial skill was “Elusive Stab,” but he temporarily changed the name because it was easier to strike at the waist and abdomen due to his shorter stature.
But it didn’t matter; the “Rampager” had no room to dodge, and the ordinary short knife easily pierced his lower back.
“Ah!” A sharp, agonizing cry echoed in the night.
Su Hao pulled out the knife and quickly retreated.
Blood gushed out of the wound like a mountain spring, and the flesh around the wound seemed to corrode, making a sizzling sound.
It looked painful.
The “Rampager” instantly lost his strength, stumbling as he clutched his lower back.
Su Hao slowly approached, intending to deliver a couple more strikes to make sure the opponent was completely incapacitated, and then cut off a piece of flesh and leave.
Unexpectedly, the “Rampager” suddenly knelt on the ground, and the armor on his arms quickly receded. Simultaneously, he pulled out a small knife from somewhere and ruthlessly cut his own arm.
“Spurt!” A piece of flesh from his arm was cut off by the “Rampager” himself, and he threw the knife to the ground, holding the flesh in his hands, shouting loudly, “Big brother, spare me! I offer my flesh and blood!”
The entire process was smooth and practiced, as if they had rehearsed it many times, leaving Su Hao and Yashan stunned.
Su Hao suddenly glanced at Yashan and discovered something they had in common: both loved to show off and were afraid of death.
While Su Hao might act recklessly at times, he wasn’t afraid of death!
Could it be that all the individuals from this “Zhu Hua People” sequence were like this?
Su Hao signaled Yashan to collect the flesh.
Yashan was extremely frightened at the moment, but for the sake of evolution, he overcame his fear and approached slowly, taking the “Rampager’s” flesh and blood and swallowing it.
Su Hao wanted to ask Yashan aloud, “Don’t you think you should save some for me?”
However, the situation had reached this point, and he didn’t pursue it any further. He took out a small empty bottle from his pocket and handed it to the “Rampager,” saying, “Blood, fill it up!”
The “Rampager” obediently accepted it, waiting at his lower back. Soon, he filled the bottle with his blood, and he cautiously asked, “Do you want the flesh too? I still have some!”
Su Hao smiled and said, “No need, you can keep it!”
Since the objective had been achieved, it was time to leave this place quickly.
Su Hao turned and called out to Yashan, “Let’s go!”
In Yashan’s only visible eyes at this moment, there was unhidden excitement. He even felt like kneeling down, hugging Su Hao’s thigh, and calling him “Dad.” Of course, only if Su Hao accepted.
Su Hao and Yashan quickly departed.
The “Rampager” who remained in place breathed a sigh of relief; this was truly a narrow escape. He was very fortunate that his reaction had been swift. If he had encountered a high-level anomaly who had no qualms about swiftly taking someone’s life, he would have been doomed.
“Ah, encountering a ‘Zhu Hua People’ with backing, how unlucky!” He muttered to himself, feeling quite unlucky. He climbed to his feet, glanced at the wounds on his arm and lower back, then suddenly held his breath, and bloodshot eyes appeared.
Inside the wound on his lower back, fleshy sprouts began to rapidly grow like tendrils, quickly sealing the wound. Thick armor then grew, completely covering the wound.
From the outside, it looked as if he hadn’t been injured at all.
“The wound on my arm can wait for a safe place; I need to leave here quickly. Not only did I gain nothing tonight, but I also lost a piece of flesh. So unfortunate!” The “Rampager” picked up the small knife from the ground and quickly left the area.
Su Hao and Yashan ran to the edge of the city and found an abandoned, rundown house.
“Let’s stay here!” Su Hao said, pushing the door open and entering.
Yashan was already on the verge of falling asleep. After entering the room with Su Hao, he immediately lay down and slept.
From his pocket, Su Hao took out a bunch of small empty bottles and neatly arranged them next to Yashan. Then, he held a small knife and waited by the side.
Su Hao wouldn’t waste such a great opportunity for observation. During Yashan’s evolution, he planned to collect his blood every five minutes, observe the genetic changes throughout the evolution process.
Looking at the neatly arranged small bottles in front of him, Su Hao regretfully thought, “There are too few bottles; otherwise, I could collect blood every minute. What a shame!”
If Yashan knew about Su Hao’s plan, he might wonder how he could sleep peacefully.
On the other side, the “Rampager” made several twists and turns and arrived at the front of a three-story building. He went to the side door and knocked three long and two short times.
Soon, the side door opened, and the “Rampager” immediately rushed inside, with the door closing behind him.
Only then did the “Rampager” breathe a long sigh of relief.
He was safe!
Inside, a tall and delicate-looking girl saw the “Rampager,” covered in blood and missing a piece of flesh from his arm, and immediately covered her mouth in astonishment. She asked, “Fred, are you injured? Can you even get injured?”
Fred, in front of the girl, naturally didn’t want to appear weak. He snorted, “Charlie, look at my arm. As you can see, I am indeed injured. But do you think this wound was inflicted by the enemy? You’re wrong. No one can leave a wound on me, except for myself!”
After saying that, Fred silently added in his heart, “Because any wounds left by enemies, I’ve already healed. Ahahaha!”
Charlie didn’t believe his nonsense and asked directly, “What happened? Didn’t you kill that wretched Charlotte?”
Whenever Charlotte was mentioned, Charlie’s exquisite face was filled with resentment.
Fred shrugged and said, “She’s too cunning. She evaded my sneak attack, turned into a night owl, and flew away. I couldn’t catch up.”
Charlie really wanted to scold Fred as useless, but after all, he was helping her, and he was injured. She couldn’t say such words for the time being.
Having missed this opportunity, she didn’t know when she would have another chance to confirm Charlotte’s whereabouts.
Charlie clenched her fists tightly.
When would she be able to kill that wretched Charlotte, her own sister!
Fred consoled, “Don’t worry, Charlie. Next time we meet her, she won’t be able to escape.”
Then he slowly walked away, heading upstairs. As he walked, he said, “I’ll go report the situation to the leader. This time, I encountered two inexplicable guys.”
