Chapter 57: Hello, Sis Zombie
The black shadow’s appearance and it dragging Xia Na away happened in a mere blink of an eye.
When Ling Mo and Ye Lian dashed inside, the shadow already dragged Xia Na into the female bathroom.
The door to it was already shattered. The supposed neat interior was now like an open stomach of a zombie. The walls, floor, and even the ceiling were covered in dark brown bloodstains.
Bright sunlight shone through the window. It didn’t bring any warmth here but made it look even gloomier and scary.
At his moment, Xia Na was pinned to the ground by the shadow. She was under attack and her instincts were fully evoked. Both of her eyes turned blood red and she pressed the long sword in front of her chest, trying to block the dark shadow.
Looking at Xia Na’s trembling arms alone, Ling Mo knew that she was not as strong as the shadow and she wouldn’t be able to hold on for too long.
The dark shadow was fast and insanely strong. Ling Mo immediately made a conclusion from the scene in front of him.
Without needing Ling Mo to control her, Ye Lian already charged at it by her instincts. Her eyes glittered with bloodthirst, lifting the machete highly in the air the instant she appeared next to the dark shadow and a cold beam slashed through the air.
Ling Mo’s eyes twitched. Ye Lian’s surprise attack missed!
The dark shadow reacted too quickly and he could barely see its movements with his eyes. When the machete slashed down, the dark shadow immediately dodged and allowed itself to stick to the wall.
A zombie who knew how to dodge attacks… Even a mutated zombie wouldn’t try to avoid any attacks. It was in their nature.
Isn’t this a normal mutated zombie?!
Although he was astonished, he quickly dragged Xia Na back to him now that she was free. At the same time, he made Ye Lian back off slowly and exhibit a defensive posture.
The zombie wasn’t simple and he couldn’t let Ye Lian attack crazily or they would pay the cost dearly!
Ling Mo finally understood why he felt so anxious as soon as he entered this mall. It was probably because of this zombie.
His consciousness and mind were much stronger than normal people and his sense became more sensitive. Perhaps the anxiety came from the instinct of being near a strong enemy.
Considering that there were no mutated zombies in a huge mall like this, Ling Mo more or less guessed where this one came from.
This one killed all the mutated zombies inside the mall and became a horrifying monster like this… It was even stronger than mutated zombies! It was intelligent! It was a complete level higher!
It knew how to hide, knew how to sneak on them, and knew how to dodge when it was getting attacked… It was an advanced level zombie!
This advanced-level zombie was far more intelligent than normal mutated zombies and their simple actions based on their instincts were now based on their intelligence to a degree.
The flashing red eyes under its messy hair wasn’t only bloodthirsty like what Ling Mo could see in other zombies, but he saw… Brutality!
That’s right, brutality!
It was the first time Ling Mo saw any fluctuations in a zombie’s emotions other than bloodthirstiness outside Ye Lian and Xia Na. Under Ling Mo’s stare, the advanced level zombie remained in an odd position. Its body was lowered with its knees slightly bent like a starving wolf that about to launch an attack any time.
After they confronted each other for a while, the zombie was getting restless.
As the zombie slowly took a step forward from the corner, Ling Mo finally saw her face clearly.
Her large curls were extremely messy. He could still see the thick makeup she wore before from her blood filled face. The dress on her body was already torn. Ling Mo’s eyes twitched at the underwear hanging on her left ankle. He couldn’t even see what color the underwear was before…
“It looks like she didn’t have time to put on her underwear before she turned into a zombie…”
Ling Mo smiled coldly.
He felt the extreme pressure from the zombie without underwear and it forced him to calm down.
Although she was strong and somewhat intelligent, she wasn’t completely unbeatable. She was just more troublesome than normal mutated zombies.
If Ling Mo didn’t care about injuring Ye Lian and Xia Na, he could’ve ordered the two to attack directly. It was such a small space and the zombie would die for sure. But he didn’t do that because it would harm the girls.
But other than this female zombie, there were no other zombies he could use. If there were other zombies here, he would have been able to squeeze her to death with his power.
When the zombie was moving forward in a probing manner, Ling Mo’s pupils suddenly shrunk and numerous tentacles formed by his mind swept towards her. But as soon as the tentacles touched the zombie’s ball of consciousness, it bounced back strongly. When his tentacles were jolted away, Ling Mo immediately felt a stinging sensation in his brain, making his expressions change.
As expected, this zombie was more intelligent than Ye Lian and it was impossible for him to control her.
Ling Mo’s action completely agitated the zombie without underwear. She gurgled hoarsely as she took half a step back and then dashed forward with Ling Mo as her target!
“****!” Ling Mo could only feel a gale rush towards him. Although he moved to the side in time and controlled Ye Lian to stop the zombie with her machete, even Xia Na dashed towards Ling Mo with her sword clenched tightly. Even so, the zombie was much faster than Ling Mo!
Ye Lian and Xia Na’s attacks were one step behind and when Ling Mo just tilted his body to the side, he felt immense power on him. The zombie spread her legs apart with her hands on his shoulders, pinning him down.
The heavy fall made Ling Mo’s stomach feel like something was stirring inside. He felt like his organs broke from shock and he was dizzy from his head smashing down on the ground.
But at the last moment, Ling Mo’s determination exploded and forced back the desire to spit out blood. He choked the zombie’s neck and stopped her from biting down. When he forcefully stopped her with all his might, Ye Lian and Xia Na already appeared behind her and both blades slashed down.
The female zombie was extremely sensitive to danger. Ling Mo was almost killed and there was no way for him to let her dodge it so easily. Although his arms felt like breaking, Ling Mo didn’t plan to let her go. Not only so, but Ling Mo also clenched his teeth and freed one arm, smashing his fist on the zombie’s face with all his energy.
The zombie’s head tilted to the side uncontrollably with Ling Mo’s force. A mouthful of foul blood spurted along with broken teeth.
Ling Mo’s fist didn’t knock the zombie out but provoked her even more. She abruptly pressed down on Ling Mo’s shoulders even more and if Ling Mo didn’t fight back with all his fight, perhaps her nails would tear his skin open.
But even so, he couldn’t stop the immense force coming down. A sharp pain came from his shoulders and Ling Mo could even hear the sound of his shoulder blades breaking, draining the energy in his arms. The zombie grasped this chance as she leaped over his head. Her white butt flashed across his eyes as the zombie barely avoided the girls’ attacks.
The scene in front of Ling Mo turned dark, but he grabbed his dagger from the ground and immediately climbed back up on his feet.
As soon as he lifted his head up, he saw Xia Na dashing from his side.
Redness flashed across her eyes. She pushed her sword forward and turned her waist around with the force, turning her body around as she brushed past the zombie in an elegant posture.
It was time to show how important techniques were when they were in such a close distance. Despite the zombie’s fast attacks, she had no techniques. But with Xia Na’s outstanding skills, she didn’t only dodge the zombie’s attack. She even hit the target successfully!
The sword was aimed at the zombie’s heart but the zombie avoided it in time and it only created a deep wound under her left armpit. Blood gushed out but it wasn’t fatal.
The main point was that Xia Na’s reaction was nowhere near as fast as the zombie!
Before Xia Na could stand steadily on his feet, the zombie didn’t care that she was wounded as she abruptly turned around and swung her arms behind when they missed the attack.
Xia Na’s body dropped down like a kite with a broken string. But as a mutated zombie, Xia Na shifted her position in mid-air and landed lightly without getting hurt.
But being able to send Xia Na into the air meant that this zombie was extremely strong!
As they watched Xia Na, Ling Mo and Ye Lian immediately leaped and waved their blades towards her when she was temporarily slowed down by the wound.
With two bloody arrows, half of the zombie’s body was almost sliced apart. When her body dropped down, Ye Lian detoured behind her and dug out the gel part inside the zombie’s brain neatly and swiftly.
As the zombie’s body fell down, a large amount of blood spurted out.
“Hurry, let’s go!”
Ling Mo didn’t have time to mind the sharp pain from his shoulders and took the girls the direction they came from. When they dashed into the safety exit, all the zombies on the third floor were disturbed and they all sprinted towards the bathroom.
These zombies were like ghosts just a second before and now, they filled the bathroom and teared the dead zombie’s body crazily. In a brief moment, flesh splattered and so did blood…
