I Was Born In The Underworld - Chapter 12
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
Seed of the Abyss.
After the light rain washed through the earth, the human beings who turned into carrion corpses, have completely evolved into another species, another creature feared by mankind.
The mysterious energy powering their bodies for the kill, is gathered in the Seed of the Abyss, which can almost be said to be the source of deadly energy.
“The dark hour has descended. Among ordinary carrions, only one-tenth of them can harbor the seed of abyss.”
“And there’s one in the carrion I just killed.”
Gu Fan smiled.
His luck is still good as new. The seed of the abyss is very precious, as not every carrion corpse can carry it in their body.
The seed of the abyss condenses the deadly energy in the corpse. Only those corpses that are powerful enough can condense and grow the seed of the abyss in their bodies.
In general, Gu Fan is lucky.
The first carrion.
The first seed of the abyss.
It is a really good start.
Gu Fan held his hunting bow high and continued to explore.
This old apartment is set at a location, where traces of humans were scarce in the first place.
But since the first zombie appeared, there must be a second, third, fourth… and more.
“Uh uh uh!!”
Inside the corridor, a low moan can be heard, from a wandering carrion.
Carrion corpses generally have poor eyesight.
The human eye is the most vulnerable part and the organ with the most amount of water.
The virus in the rain of disaster will erode human blood as soon as it enters the body, and the eyeballs are naturally the first organ that becomes diseased, so the vision of most carrion corpses are damaged.
They can only rely on an enhanced sense of smell to find prey.
But the smell of this area is a maze of confusion for the carrions. The pungent smell of the disinfectant almost blinded the carrions, which gave Gu Fan a better chance to get close to them.
Below the corridor, two carrion corpses are hovering about.
Gu Fan hesitated for a second, as the sound produced by attacking one would surely alert the second one, and they will both rush toward him like beasts that have been starving for eternity.
Draw the arrow. Draw the bow to the full, then aim and shoot…
This all happened in the blink of a second, but it is still too long for the narrow corridor.
If the second arrow can kill the carrion in a second, then Gu Fan is safe. However, if it can’t finish off the corpse in a second, then it will alert and give the corpse enough time to tackle Gu Fan down.
Gu Fan calculated all of this in his heart.
He soon had a plan, and it was an extremely crazy plan.
Pull the bow.
Gu Fan squatted forward, his bow and arrow aimed at the head of the first carrion.
Hold your breath.
Gu Fan’s whole body as tense as the bow he’s stretching. There is only one way to instantly kill two carrion corpses, and that is to shoot the bow and arrow at the same time as the corpses’ instant attack!
The arrow pierced through thin air, and the specialized arrow dedicated to the kill emitted a cold light and penetrated directly into the skull of the carrion corpse.
The sound of torn flesh and broken bones came at the same time.
This skull-shattering arrow pierced into the brain of the carrion corpse, and the blood mixed with the brain spouted into the air wildly, as the carrion was instantly killed by this attack.
The other carrion immediately notices the death of its companion.
It glanced suspiciously around and growled angrily at the fallen fellow beside itself. Immediately, it looked back to the stairs behind it.
A human shadow!
A figure fell from up-high.
This figure is no one else, but Gu Fan!!
The moment the skull-shattering arrow was shot, he jumped down from the stairs, pulled out a sharp knife from his pocket, and smirked at the carrion corpse below, the one wandering and not knowing its coming death.
For the kill!!
Gu Fan’s body is shaking, his natural instinct is to be as far away from these monsters as possible. [Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
However, the desire to kill is also throbbing, only the warm blood splattering from these monsters, can smooth the twisted madness Gu Fan harbors, deep inside his heart.
The carrion turned his head.
Before the ugly and rotten monster could react, the icy tip of the knife had already pierced its temple.
The sound of the blade piercing the temple is painfully clear.
The carrion corpse opened its mouth wide as if it is going to roar, but the sound could not reach the air.
Fresh blood mixed with brain pulp flowed from the tip of the knife freely, and the body of the carrion fell soft onto the ground.
Gu Fan raised his hand and held onto the back of the corpse, making its falling speed even slower, and it falls to the ground silently.
Two carrion corpses.
An instant kill.
Anyone else would think… Shooting at a distance with a bow and arrow is the safest choice, as getting close would almost be a suicide mission.
But Gu Fan isn’t ordinary. He’s the crazy one.
His body indeed trembles in fear.
But his consciousness is enjoying the frenzied killings, enjoying the feeling of dancing on the edge of danger and the rope of death.
The feeling of oppression and madness intertwined, the idea that he may die in the next second, is making Gu Fan, who is full of murderous desire, unable to stop his killings.
And… Although his choice seemed dangerous, it is actually the best solution.
The plan in his heart is absolutely crazy. The time of shooting the arrow with the bow is too slow, so while shooting away from the arrow, he jumped down, took advantage of the moment when the other carrion hadn’t realized a human is nearby.
This is the best solution.
In the end, these two carrion corpses died without making a single sound and didn’t injure Gu Fan one bit, let alone attracting other monsters.
Calm, sensible, crazy.
This is the real Gu Fan!!
Drawing out the short knife, Gu Fan sliced the back of the two monsters’ heads.
But to his disappointment, the place behind their heads where the Seed of the Abyss grows is empty, as the energy in these two monsters was not enough to grow the Seed of the Abyss.
“What a shame.”
Gu Fan sighed, but he knows it can’t be helped.
Only one out of ten carrion corpses will be able to harbor the Seed of the Abyss.
He continues to search downwards.
Gu Fan found the fourth carrion!
A carrion corpse left alone is too easy to kill. Gu Fan has entered his “zone” of killing. There is a feeling of uncontrollable madness in his extreme excitement. His consciousness is deeply plunged into this excitement, and his whole body is trembling, this time in excitement, not in fear.
He did the same as what he did before.
Drawing out the skull-shattering arrow and aimed it at the carrion to end it, but it was another disappointment…this carrion doesn’t harbor the Seed of the Abyss in its skull as well.
Gu Fan walked all the way to the third floor of the apartment, and just as he’s about to continue, a nearby door slammed loudly, and roars from angry carrions can be heard between the sound of the door being slammed.
A carrion is smashing the door.
Gu Fan tip-toed from the stairs to the corridor. From a distance, he can see that two carrion corpses are violently smashing the door.
A bloody line can be seen stretching from the security door to the vicinity of the stairs.
Obviously, someone injured is hiding behind the door. Fortunately, the security doors of this apartment as not been all demolished, so lucky survivors who escaped behind it can temporarily see refuge from the carrions.
There are people injured……
And the anti-theft iron door is also crumbling.
Those carrion corpses are much stronger than ordinary people, and every time they swing their fists at the door, bumps can be seen behind each attack.
Clouds of dust fell, and the anti-theft door made a weak “creak” sound. It is clear that if the carrions keep at this for a few more minutes, the door will inevitably be broken.
Gu Fan kneeled down silently. The carrion smashing the door is a very good target right now.
Their attention is fully focused on the security door, and shooting them will be the best choice right now.
Pull the bow.
Release the bowstring.
The skull-piercing arrow once again draws a perfect arc.
