I Was Born In The Underworld - Chapter 8
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
Three days later.
The slanting sunlight shone through a slightly dilapidated and dirty apartment.
There were several cobwebs in the corner of the wall, woven into the shape of a perfect trap. A faint musty smell was emerging between the walls and wooden boards, and the dust on the handrails of the stairs has thickened its layers.
An apartment like this is completely useless, other than getting a huge amount of demolition money.
In fact, that is what’s happening here, as the demolition notice for this apartment has already been issued. Next month, this site will be completely demolished, except for a few of those stubborn residents—who wants to demand extra demolition prices—most residents have already packed their bags and left this aging apartment.
But things have taken another bizarre turn.
Three days ago, a strange young man moved in.
Although the landlord repeatedly informed him that the building will be demoted soon, he still insisted on moving in and gave the landlord a handsome paycheck for rent. Well, every penny is worth earning, and the landlord finally relented and took the check happily. This is probably the last value of the apartment before the demolition money rolls into his bank account.
The young man who rented this apartment, is GuFan!
In three days, he has made sufficient preparations, to prepare for the future he knew,
29th of May, 2020.
It has been three days since that nightclub incident, and today is the day. The day when the demon emerges from hell, and claws upon humanity.
Darkness is coming.
The crushingly dark era, is descending and opening.
The whole world will be plunged by destruction and catastrophe, and no one can escape, as the human civilization that once protected everyone, will crumble into ashes and end today. No one can escape the eternal fear that’s coming…
The sound of electric fires sizzles, as GuFan reinforces the security door with a welding torch. He reinforced two layers of steel plates, which is doubled the thickness of the anti-the thief door already inserted. He also sprayed a lot of pungent disinfectant on it, to the point that even the most desperate thief in the world and sniff the door and run away.
The sweat is soaking through his clothes, and the oil stains are making their appearance on his sleeves proudly, as he continues to labor.
GuFan glanced at the clock and walked into the house to take out all the props he prepared in these three days. These aren’t ordinary traps…
He was taking out animal traps from his house??
Well, these aren’t a rack of toys that can only catch house mice. Each of them is made of steel, with a diameter of about 50cm. The serrations have been carefully sharpened and polished, and no one would joke on their ability to kill.
If someone steps foot on them, under the strong bite force, the jagged teeth would not only pierce the skin and muscles, but also directly crush the human bones, and even snap away at least half of the leg.
Even with someone as strong as GuFan, it still takes a tremendous amount of effect, for him to use tools and open the animal trap.
Moments later, the once empty hallway is now full of nearly twenty traps, and GuFan is sweating profusely. This was a real effort!
“Not enough time.”
“These traps are still a bit rough, but they will do for now.”
GuFan panted. These traps sure took him a lot of effort, as only the electric welding company near the scrap iron recycling station was willing to take his order, and make the traps, as well as giving him two steel plates to reinforce the door.
He turned and walked back to his house.
Seconds later, GuFan took out some more tools from his room.
It is a tool that can be drilled and fixed in the eaves of the wall. After the tapered tip penetrates the wall, it can pull out the barbs around it. It comes in groups of two, fixed in the middle of the corridor wall.
He then took out another small box.
It is a luxurious and expansive box, with exquisite packaging. Inside, there are piano wires imported from German, which were purchased from a well-known piano shop in the city.
The steel wire is now connected to the buckle of the puncture tool, straightened and tightened by GuFan, forming another deadly trap.
These deadly piano threads are completely indistinguishable to the naked eye!
People with ordinary eyes, absolutely cannot tell. It is only when the light shines on it, and a reflection of cold, sharpened light can be seen. If anyone tries to run in this corridor…This hard-to-see wire would surely sever his ties with life.
This is almost like a scene from a movie.
Piano threads, often appearing in mysterious movies and novels. It is very tough and can be easily sought from piano stories. Its sharpness can cleanly slash the throat of human beings. It is said that during the war, these silent killers were the weapon of choice, for army experts who specialized in assassinations.
The ten years of struggle, struggling to survive in the dark and desperation, has taught GuFan what he must do to stay alive. These traps are just the tip of the iceberg, but they are very practical.
“There’s nothing more to do now. I just need to be patient and wait. Oh, also a shower.”
GuFan was already sweating in heaping amounts, but he smiled with satisfaction as he looked at his masterpieces in the hallway.
Returning to his room.
The dim and aging room and full of debris left by steel friction. Dozens of arrows leaned against the wall, and these arrows were all made of special stainless steel—they were from the same batch from Lin Yuxin.
Some arrows are sharp and unusually strong, which are most suitable for penetrating the body of prey.
Some have sharp barbs, which will be firmly fixed into the flesh of prey when pierced right through. These barbs will intertwin with the bones and flesh, making it difficult to pull out with force.
These varieties of arrows can deal with all situations, even GuFan’s professional judgment cannot pick at them.
Look at the corner of the room again.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
A dozen boxes of compressed biscuits and cans are piled sky-high,
Half of the room is stacked full with boxes of pure water, it is almost comparable to a warehouse.
This…is the safe room created by GuFan!
It is hard to imagine, he has achieved this in just three days.
GuFan walked to a nearby table, and there were still two stacks of bright red Chinese coins on them, probably around 100,000.
Three days ago, GuFan found a loan company and borrowed a large amount of money, with the real estate certificate left by his parents.
The original property valued at one million, he only borrowed 500,000 and then bet all of it to the other party, on the condition that all the cash was to immediately be cashed out.
Gu Fan grabbed these stacks of money and threw them in the air. They were floating snowflakes, and they will never be needed, ever again.
Give it another half an hour, and this 100,000 cash would just be a waste of space.
The sound of the tickling hand of the clock was so clear, that Gu Fan walked out of the bathroom and wiped off the crystal clear dewdrops on his body.
“At this moment, the dark catastrophe has arrived, and the cataclysm is finally coming. I am ready.”
GuFan muttered casually to himself. When he saw the clock ticked to 11:59, he walked to the window. Through the cracks in the window that had been sealed by steel plates, he looked at the street below, where people came and went nearby.
11:59:59, the second hand pulls the minute hand, and the minute hand drags the hour hand.
12 o’clock finally arrived.
A vast sound comes washing through the earth. It is a magnificent sound like it came from ancient bells being knocked over, in the temples on the Qing mountain, above society, above mankind.
This sound seems to have fallen from the sky and nine heavens, and it seems to rise from the core of the earth. It echoes in everyone’s ears, and it seems to tremble in the brain consciousness of every creature.
It is omnipresent. It is definitely not as plain as a single note. The sound directly penetrates the consciousness of the breathing body. Even those who are deaf or mute, who have never heard any sound, or felt any vibrations of sound, could hear this bell sounds that’s shaking the world.
Everyone is dumbfounded.
People can’t help but cover their ears. Many people squatted on the ground with their mouths open as they entered a short period of aphonia. Many others suffered damage to their eardrums in varying degrees, and wisps of blood start to drip from their ears.
Bang, bang, bang!!
On the roadway, many drivers were shocked and frozen. There were endless series of rear-end collisions, and some passers-by were knocked down by drivers who stepped on the accelerator by mistake.
This is not the worse.
The electronic instrument has started to malfunction and turning to a high speed, in cars that collided with each other. After turning to the fastest speed, a burst of electromagnetic sparks was emitted, and the sharp stings of scorching smell soon follow, as precision instruments inside have well burned into a pile of paste.
Looking down from above, you will find that a large number of cars are emitting thick black smoke, a few have even exploded.
Boom boom boom boom!!
The tumbling flame engulfed everything within a 5-meter radius.
A car was thrown into the crowd by the fire waves. The waves shattered the glass of the surrounding buildings, injuring many people on the spot. There were passers-by screaming and lying on the ground helplessly, with their ears covered.
What is happening??
This incident is far from over.
Not only the car’s instrumentation, but the entire city’s circuits are paralyzed.
That vast and magnificent bell sound, has produced an incredibly intense electromagnetic fluctuation. The television in the mall has burned down, and even the electronic screen with advertisements on the building has exploded.
The mobile phones that were basically “external organs” in people’s pockets are also burning like hot iron, and all the wires inside are burned and melted by super electromagnetic waves.
In the sky…All the meters in front of the captain of the passenger flight have also burned down. Except for the cracks made by the sound, there is nothing, on the display screen. The stopped engine gradually cooled down, and the plane could only carry the fear and despair of the passengers, as it crashes towards the ground.
Above the sea…The aircraft carrier’s power system has also completely failed. The entire huge hull floats on the sea like an iron trash can, and all electronic equipment has turned into a pile of melted paste.
Without electromagnetic equipment, even the doors could not be opened, and the fighter jets and helicopter gunships that were participating in army exercises, have all fallen to the bottom of the sea like headless flies.
One hundred meters underground… The military missile base is completely paralyzed.
The supercomputers controlled by the scientists have become a structured waste, and the display screen in front of the reading glasses flickered, as all data are corrupted.
Not only that, the missiles have all become decorations. Without the support of electronic equipment, the ignition device cannot be activated, not to mention the more sophisticated aiming system and electronic system.
It is not just China.
In a flash, the entire human world has become paralyzed, as mankind, who were accustomed to living supported by technology, seemed to have returned to the era of barbarians.
“The bell of the doomsday, I can hear it once again ringing.”
GuFan stood by the window still and muttered. This is the initial prologue of the end of the world.
29th of May, 2020.
The bell of the doomsday rang, and the earth answered. Technology that people rely on the most, has all become a waste of space, the sophisticated electronic equipment has become nothing but a burden. The world is panicking in fear, and not a single light shone through this restless night.
However, this is only the prologue of the end of times, the real darkness has just begun.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
