Chapter 55: My Goal Is A Tentacle Monster
Ling Mo continued to scavenge two more grocery stores with this method and collected quite a lot of supplies.
During the process, he intentionally experienced using his ability and his ability indeed improved.
When he couldn’t see the threads in his eyes, he had to make eye contact with the zombies to see the zombies’ spiritual spheres.
In order to create a connection with zombies, he had to wrap their empty spiritual spheres with his threads. But when he needed to control it, he had to insert the threads inside the spheres.
For example, his connection with Xia Na was only maintained so that his threads were tied around her sphere, but with Ye Lian, it seemed like his threads had melted into her spiritual light sphere and it was extremely comfortable to control her.
Ling Mo made up an appropriate name for his threads: spiritual tentacles or just tentacles for short.
When he saw infinite tentacles tied Xia Na and Ye Lian with him closely with him as the center, Ling Mo couldn’t help but smile pervertedly.
If these tentacles become real… Before he could think further, he immediately laughed at himself. “It’s just the power of my mind. Even if it becomes real… Wouldn’t I be a tentacle monster?”
In another aspect, he found something important during his fight.
Ye Lian and Xia Na are both zombie puppets and they got along well, unlike the aggressiveness they showed against other zombies.
But the two of them wouldn’t work with each other. Especially when Ling Mo loosened the connection with Ye Lian and let her fight with her instincts, this disadvantage became extremely obvious. When they fought alone as mutated zombies, they only knew how to attack and it was extremely easy to cause problems for him when fighting in a busy area like this.
If Ling Mo was the main fighter and the two supported him, then they would solve this problem easily. Whether it was Ye Lian or Xia Na, both of them would work at Ling Mo’s pace and they would be a lot more efficient.
“It looks like it won’t work without me…”
It was also a big challenge for Ling Mo to ask the two girls to follow his pace. Luckily, after he improved his physical body, he was swifter in movements despite the fact that his strength didn’t increase. In addition to following Ye Lian’s attack speed, he could also guide Xia Na to attack faster.
The one human and two zombies worked together well and advanced carefully. None of them were injured and they even killed many zombies.
Seeing that he was almost done with collecting food supplies, it had only been two or three hours since they left. Ling Mo changed his target to hunt down mutated zombies.
He continuously used his ability and had to maintain the connection with both zombies. He was exhausted no matter how strong his tentacles were.
Rather than improving his physical body, his tentacles… No, it was more important to improve his mind!
Gel parts were needed urgently, and the more the better!
Normal zombies were everywhere but it wasn’t so easy to find mutated zombies. As he advanced forward, Ling Mo was also looking around.
“New Times Plaza…”
Ling Mo saw a large shopping mall from far away. He had an impression of this New Times Plaza. He knew that it was the biggest shopping mall in this area and the number of people there was unimaginable every day.
There must be mutated zombies inside a place like this!
After they had arrived, Ling Mo wasn’t in a hurry to enter, but he tried to catch his breath and observed the situation inside it.
The number of zombies in a large shopping mall was unimaginable. He looked towards it and zombies almost covered every space inside the mall.
Compared to the huge number of zombies, the entrance looked so narrow that he could barely see it.
Ling Mo was worried that survivors might’ve come here before and lured the zombies outside, but he knew that he was overthinking it once he arrived.
Survivors obviously tried to stay away from big shopping malls like this. The things sold inside were nothing close to food and other than people with special intentions like Ling Mo, no one else would dare to come close.
But just because there were no survivors there, it didn’t mean that there were no traces of slaughtering. Contrarily, blood almost covered the entrance area. Layers of plasma and torn flesh clotted together as if it was a thick layer of rotten and smelly carpet. Ripped clothes could be seen everywhere in addition to scattered skeletons. It wasn’t hard to imagine that a human feast exploded here…
It was the same inside the mall; there wasn’t an inch of clean space inside.
Even Ling Mo frowned at the odor. However, Xia Na and Ye Lian looked excited and Xia Na’s eyes even became slightly red. Determination wise, she wasn’t as strong as Ye Lian. Ling Mo thought that although Xia Na regained more intelligence than Ye Lian, Ye Lian’s level of evolution in physical body and nature was higher than hers.
No matter what, the smell of blood was extremely attractive to them.
But with the extreme odor, there was no need to worry that the zombies could discover a living human there through their nose. If they kept silent and hid well, perhaps they would be able to try to venture into this meat grinder. Ling Mo came here before and he knew that the higher up they went, the brands would be more luxurious and there would be fewer people there.
When the disaster exploded, everyone would dash downstairs, so although there were zombies crowded on the first and second floor, perhaps upstairs would be empty.
If not, Ling Mo was certain that he could escape through the stairs inside.
After Ling Mo made the decision, he inhaled deeply and held it in. He silently walked around the mall and eventually entered through the staff entrance from the side.
As for Ye Lian and Xia Na, those two could enter zombie crowds freely, but Ling Mo thought that it was unsafe to look at the number of zombies wandering inside. Hence, he made the two girls follow him and not try to force their way through the front gate.
Going through the staff entrance, it was a half-closed space. They could see the inside of the mall through the half-opened gap and they could silently go up the stairs.
Although they didn’t come in contact with the large crowd of zombies inside, it was still dreadful to be at such close proximity from them.
