The Trembling World Chapter 201
“I’ll go with you,” Liu Gan replied to Yin He.
At this very moment, the lightning brightened the entire sky, followed by the sound of thunder.
“It’s okay, I can go alone. I am not afraid of this lightning. However, you aren’t as invincible.” Yin He stopped Liu Gan.
“Okay then, go quickly and return fast. Don’t travel too far,” Liu Gan said to Yin He. Liu Gan knew that Yin He was stronger, but there were too many accidents that could occur in The Trembling World. Plus, he felt a lingering feeling of uneasiness.
“Okay,” Yin He said as she let go of Liu Gan’s hand. Soon she disappeared from sight into the darkness of the night, under the cover of the thunderstorm.
As the events in the hotel simmered down. They had to bring out the flashlights to illuminate the surrounding. A portion of the players had started a fire to cook dinner for everyone. Those that didn’t have dinner duties sat by the tableside in the ballroom to chat with one another and there were some who sat near the windows to watch the lightning storm.
This thunderstorm and the one from a few days ago were the same. First came the lightning, then the thunder. Throughout the storm, large droplets of rain could be heard hitting on the panels of the window.
The torrential downpour created a flood as the rainwater pooled up to the ankle level on the ground floor. It was a good thing that the hotel was built on elevated ground; there were a dozen steps above the ground level. The flood didn’t reach the first floor of the hotel and to the front of the building was a large gutter. Even as the gutter became filled to the brim with rainwater, the rainwater flowed from the higher to lower grounds. There was no chance for the rainwater to flood the first floor of the hotel.
“Damn! This type of weather is hopeless!” Zhang ShengLi stood by the front door of the hotel and cursed the gods.
“Even other games don’t have weather this harsh! Remember that tornado? That was terrifying! I remember how glad I was that it didn’t head toward my way,” Xue Jian said to Zhang ShengLi.
This game wasn’t like other games. In other games, as long as Xue Jian could bring out more money, he could buy his way into owning legendary equipment. This way, he could earn the envy of others. However, in The Trembling World, there was no way he could do that; he and other players wouldn’t have an advantage over one another. So Xue Jian had started accumulating other advantages like social connections.
Even now, Xue Jian was trying his best to bond with the group. To form good connections with Zhang ShengLi and other squad leaders was what Xue Jian should do first. Among the squad leaders, Xue Jian was the weakest of them all. If Xue Jian doesn’t form a good relationship, then as a representative of his squad, they will have a hard time staying with the group. Xue Jian didn’t want to rely on Liu Gan’s relationship to stay in the group; Xue Jian wanted to earn his keep within the group.
“Wait, that tornado several days earlier never reached you? I bet you won’t believe that we were at the city center. We were in the eye of the storm. It was a terrifying feeling…” Zhang ShengLi recalling the events of that day.
“Ah? You were able to survive the force of the tornado? Even within the eye of the storm?” Xue Jian asked in a shocked expression.
“Yes! That time we had three team members instantly killed by the tornado upon impact. Two of them were killed by a flying truck! Can you imagine that? The building corner got struck by the truck and the debris killed the two members. I witnessed it with my own eyes, there was no time to react to it! It could’ve been any one of us!” Zhang ShengLi recalling his memory.
“Damn! That is terrifying!” Xue Jian exclaimed with his eyes wide open.
“That wasn’t even the most frightening part. The worst part was when the tornado picked up all the zombies into the sky. The tornado connected heaven and earth! After the wind stopped blowing, one by one the zombies started to rain down. The ground formed ten layers of bodies!” Zhang ShengLi continued.
