The Trembling World Chapter 455
Chapter 455 – Vandalize!
With 2000 Yuan as startup money, Liu Gan had saved two-thirds of his time. There were a lot of minor details that they would have to catch if they wanted to finish the quests. If Liu Gan had just walked away, then he wouldn’t have received help from the worker. Liu Gan would’ve had to work to death just to make up for that money.
For the rest of the day, Liu Gan focused on killing regular Crocodiles. He killed four of those creatures and the experience was split between Star Yu and Cai Hao Chen. One set of experience points from the kill was given to Star Yu, and the remaining three sets were given to Cai Hao Chen. Star Yu was able to reach level 10 and Cai Hao Chen reached level 11.
Liu Gan had his reason for his actions. From the moment he had to calculate how long it would take to finish the mission under ideal conditions, he realized it wouldn’t be anytime soon. Instead, he wrote a letter and used the earpiece as a symbol of proof; Cai Hao Chen would carry out this mission and leave through the side exit.
Cai Hao Chen would reassure Yin He with this letter and item, so she wouldn’t have to worry so much about his situation.
“My Lord, why don’t you arrange someone else to do this task? I still want to stay behind to fight by your side,” Cai Hao Chen sighed unwillingly. He knew that it would be even more dangerous as time went by. As a man of pride, it didn’t sit right with him to give up on the team.
“Due to the importance of this assigned task, I wanted to guarantee that the letter falls into the right hands. Currently, the person I trust the most is you, so only you can fulfill this mission for me,” Liu Gan told Cai Hao Chen seriously.
“Okay, I will guarantee that the mission will be a success,” Cai Hao Chen promised after hearing the reason behind Liu Gan’s command.
Prior to departing, Cai Hao Chen gave everyone a goodbye hug. They had grown familiar with one another after going through life and death situations. Through these few days of interactions, their bonds were much deeper than before.
Even though the instance hadn’t ended yet, no one knew when they would need to put up a brave front again.
Cai Hao Chen took his first big step out of the exit. When he stepped through the doorway to Moonlight Gulf Theme Park, he turned back to look and the group had disappeared from view.
Regardless of the reason or how the instance worked, Cai Hao Chen acknowledged his own lack of understanding, so he didn’t linger around to investigate. Following the directions he had received from the worker, after exiting the door, he turned right at the corner and walked around a hundred meters. These were the instructions to the worker’s house. To Cai Hao Chen’s surprise, when he arrived at the designated location, it was just a pasture that happened to be close to the front gates of the Theme Park. It was where they had first lost sight of Yin He and NaNa, who were now nowhere to be found.
Right as Cai Hao Chen was about to take a better look at the tracks to see where they could’ve gone to, he felt the chill of a blade resting on his neck. It was Yin He’s katana.
“Vice leader, I’ve brought out Lord Liu’s personal letter and item as proof for you.” Cai Hao Chen slowly and very carefully pulled out the items for her.
Yin He’s suspicions were removed once she finished reading the letter. Then, she asked in detail about the events inside the instance.
Meanwhile, as Liu Gan and his group were working hard to conquer the instance, the Beginner Village had trouble stirring up.
“Tell your village chief to come out and meet me!”
A player around twenty years old, with all white clothes, was the leader of the intruding party. This leader was shouting at the village gatekeepers. He was accompanied by two others dressed in all black.
“Please calm down, what is your name? And what is your purpose here?” The gatekeepers tried to defuse the situation calmly.
“Tell your village chief, I’m Cao Yi! I expect him to get here in five minutes to see me. If I don’t see him in five minutes, I will destroy this place,” the arrogant man told the gatekeepers.
“Okay, please wait. I will report that in,” the gatekeepers said quickly. From the looks of this intruding party, they don’t seem to be a friendly bunch, and their arrogant behavior said that they were high level players.
Currently stationed in the village were Wang De Cheng and Thunder Martial as interim leaders, and they were out on patrol while the intruder was by the front gates. So the gatekeepers weren’t able to find their leaders. After the time was up, Cao Yi started getting aggressive. With his long sword, he swung it into the concrete reinforced metal gates. The sword had a cyan glow that cut through the heavy gate like it was butter. The gate fell into pieces and dust particles were kicked up into the air.
Even without anyone reporting in on the situation, Wang De Cheng and Thunder Martial heard the ruckus by the front gates. They both rushed over, but it was too late. Cao Yi had begun his killing spree. Several of the nearby village players gathered around to check out the source of the noise, but they were cut apart by Cao Yi.
“Who are you? Why did you come here to vandalize and start a fight?” Wang De Cheng rushed over to Cao Yi.
“So are you the leader of this village?” Cao Yi beckoned his allies to pause the attacks.
“My name is Wang, people here call me Wang De Cheng. I’m the Third Elder here. Since our leader is out hunting, I’m in charge. If you have any problems, then you could’ve just asked me. No need to get physical with others,” Wang De Cheng replied calmly.
“Hey dogshit! I am such a gentleman. I gave you five minutes to come out and meet me, but you didn’t come out to greet me. So how can you blame me for taking action?” Cao Yi scolded him mockingly.
“What? What kind of trash talk is that? What gentleman would have such twisted logic?” Thunder Martial shouted at Cao Yi.
“You want to die?” Cao Yi pointed his sword at Thunder Martial.
“Hey, let’s talk it out! We have no rivalries between us, so there’s no need to fight to the death. So tell me, what is the purpose for your visit?” Wang De Cheng blocked Thunder Martial from acting out.
“I’m here to deliver a warning to you. This city district is our territory! You have to cease all zombie hunting activities within Nin Jing City! If you enter the city district after today, don’t blame us for taking action against your crimes!” Cao Yi’s choice of words were extremely arrogant.
“When… did this city district became your territory? We are clearing out the zombies in the city to restore order and peace. You are human too, so our goal should be the same. Why would you try to stop us? It doesn’t make any sense!” Wang De Cheng was surprised by the warning.
