I Was Born In The Underworld - Chapter 19
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
The Dark Disaster’s truest monstrosities will be fully revealed.
Survivors of the end of the word will soon understand this.
When the sun goes down and the night falls and the stars shine, the world will become a paradise for monsters.
“Rawr rawr rawr rawr rawr!”
“Rawr rawr rawr rawr rawr!”
The rotten corpses became particularly active.
Through the crack of his window, he could see the decaying corpses with their head up in the sky, roaring and roaring.
They wandered around each other, like waves of rotten corpses, a wave after another, seemingly endless.
Looking at them carefully.
The veins on the cheeks of these corpses were more obvious in the night.
The mysterious substance flowing under their blood vessels was sparkling, which caused the raised green tendons surrounding their body to look like roots of dead trees. Each corpse was flickering with light below the night sky.
If you were looking at them from a high-rise building, you will even think that this was a beautiful scene, as if they were countless fireflies flying in the dark.
“The age of technology has fallen.”.
“All electronic products that were once used were destroyed in this disaster, and the whole city’s electric power system was smashed. Only these rotten corpses can bring light to the city.”
Gu Fan shook his head in a taunting way.
The entire city’s electric power system was destroyed, but the dead were shining.
If you looked down from the sky, the flickers in the city were like the Milky way, but this Milky way was made up of countless monsters.
If you were able to observe Earth from another planet in space far away, you will realize that most of the landmass on Earth were emitting the same kind of dazzling light.
The world was occupied. It was occupied by decaying corpses.
This was just one reason to be fearful of the dark.
Then, something even more terrible happened.
In the cracks of the city, something even more terrible hid away.
In this profoundly deep abyss, the flowing light that looked like rosy clouds were twisting and turning. The abyss within the cracks was the root of all disasters.
Something was crawling out
Something had crawled out of the crack’s abyss.
It was a humanoid monster!
They had long and narrow limbs, just like a spider’s limbs, and could quickly scale the cliffs.
Their limbs were kind of scarlet in color, their muscles so incomparably developed that they even tore through the surface of their skin, to the extent that the muscle fibers were exposed to the air, making them seem particularly ferocious.
They also had black blades at the end of their limbs.
Three sharp blades that could easily pierce rocks, allowed them to fix their bodies firmly on the cliffs and quickly crawl onto buildings.
Taking a closer look.
There were no eye-like organs on the heads of these monsters.
They were sealed under the depths of Earth. They did not any vision, and only had very developed senses of smell and hearing.
In the dark, they could find the general direction of their prey only by smell, and then with their accurate hearing, they can identify the location of the prey.
This wasn’t even the scariest part about these monsters.
The most frightening thing was the huge bloody mouths.
The giant bloody mouth occupied almost half of their heads. By opening their giant mouths just a little, the corners of the mouth could go up to their earlobes, and their sharp fangs were as sharp as the tip of a steel knife. If humans were bitten by them, the monsters would tear off dozens of kilograms of bloody flesh.
These end-of-world creatures were human hunters. People turn pale at the mere mention of their existence.
At the later stages of the Dark Disaster, the people gave them a name.
Nightcrawlers!![Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
They were the hunters in the night.
They were the greatest fears that humans will face at the end of the world.
These monsters from the cracks of the deep abyss. Human beings were unable to escape them.
Woosh woosh woosh!
Woosh woosh woosh!
The nightcrawlers were moving fast on the ground, making slight noises.
First, they use their olfactory senses to determine the possible location of their prey.
After a while when they have a possible answer, they would pass through the wandering corpses and jump directly onto the concrete walls of a high-rise building.
The claws on the night crawlers’ limbs pierced the walls, and they were climbing up like a giant lizard, with their big ears attached to the wall, close to the windows to hear any possible sounds in the rooms.
One room after another.
Soon, the night crawlers found their prey.
Humans were quarreling in an apartment room. A couple who were criticizing each other about their ways of survival.
The nightcrawlers heard these sounds.
It predicted the couple’s position and their claws smashed glass and they jumped in from the window. A massacre began.
Their sharp claws swung forward.
The man’s chest was completely torn up, the claws made wounds of more than ten centimeters, and the man’s internal organs were easily cut.
Another limb of the nightcrawler stabbed the girl through her abdomen, then it pulled back its claws and opened its giant bloody mouth for a bite.
Blood splashed everywhere.
Brain matter flew everywhere.
The human’s head was busted open like bursting beef balls. The nightcrawler took three or two bites to swallow it.
The dying man was scared silly. The nightcrawler ate the woman in its limbs and climbed towards the man
Such scenes were not uncommon.
Nightcrawlers will never let a human escape. They were the real human nightmare.
Fortunately, they were not many of them. There were less than ten in the nearby areas.
If thousands of such monsters appeared, the survivors of the whole city would be slaughtered in less than one night.
Gu Fan experienced this long ago.
He knew deeply the horrors of the nightcrawlers. Even he, a butcher who has been through many battles, could not fight against such a nightmare currently.
Controlling his breath.
Gu Fan has made his heart rate and breathing as stable as possible.
Nearly silent, the nightcrawlers behind his walls won’t be able to hear him.
And even if he was heard, there were several layers of hard steel plates to protect and temporarily block the night crawlers’ attacks.
That’s why he completely sealed the windows with steel plates with three inner layers and three outer layers.
All of these forced human beings to be trapped at night, and it was almost impossible to move when night falls.
“Fearing the night, countless people will not be able to sleep.”
“I am used to nights full of nightcrawlers. Let’s have a good sleep.”
“The night crawlers will be gone tomorrow morning, and I will also start a new journey of hunting and killing.”
Gu Fan seemed to be whispering to himself.
He has been through 10 years of the Dark Disaster.
He was long used to the darkness ruled by nightcrawlers and he had to continue to find a living the next day.
Fortunately, these nightmares were stuck in the abyss and darkness for such a long time, that they could not adapt to the light of the day. The particular beams from the sun can cause severe damage to the body of these nightcrawlers.
So, when the dawn breaks, the nightcrawlers will also retreat.
When the first ray of sunlight pierces the night, the nightcrawlers will return to the cracks, into the abyss underneath the ground, waiting for the night to come again.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
