Young Military Rarities Novel - Chapter 321
321. A Fierce Battle With Zombie Birds
A siren hooted.
The siren, reverberating through the whole base, got louder as it approached nearer. The soldiers climbed onto the military trucks skillfully which then drove to the city wall. The officers got into gear rapidly under the organization of Wang Guoqiang. The long-range attack superfunction possessors went to the city wall to assist the military. The close-range superfunction possessors together with the people without superfunction helped the people who still worked in the wild to retreat back home, and warned people by broadcasting to stay at home with doors and windows shut and not to look around out of curiosity.
As for the superfunction possessors, all superfunction squads also took action. Some were busy comforting their family and some were driving to the city wall spontaneously. The whole base was filled with unprecedented tense and panic.
“Vice Captain, Che!”
When Heiyu carried Yun Che and Gu Mingxuan back to Chaoyang Community, all the task-free squads here heard the noise and came out. Yun Che said attentively on Heiyu’s back, “We’re attacked by numerous zombie birds. All squads, transfer all staff in the kindergarten, the research institute, etc. Move the people from high buildings to villas to take shelter. Move, now!”
Yun Che’s order was Xing Feng’s order. All Chaoyang squads split up and took action at once. Yun Che patted Heiyu’s body and in just a few jumps Heiyu carried them back home. Yun Yao and other people who also heard the noise were looking around at the door. When seeing Yun Che back, Yun Yao ran over in panic. “Che, Mingxuan, what’s going on? Why the air raid warning?”
None of the Chinese people was unfamiliar with the air raid warning. Before the doomsday, air raid drills had been conducted from time to time in every city. The air raid warnings had also been conducted on the occasions of earthquakes, floods and other natural disasters or the disasters caused by human beings. It was not the first time that the air raid warning had been conducted in the Southwest Base ever since the doomsday. Last time was in the rat plague. Did any disaster happen again this time?
“The zombie birds. Sis, all of you get in the space now.”
With no time to explain, Yun Che opened the space directly as soon as he entered the yard. He also called out Jiang Yuan and other people who were cultivating in the space. “Jiang Yuan, go get Xiu Jie.”
Not knowing what was happening, Jiang Yuan still turned around and ran away. Yun Yao walked up and asked with concerns, “What about you? Don’t tell me you want to kill the zombie birds, will you?”
“Sis, it’s not the time to get worried. Xing Feng is not here. It’s my responsibility to protect the whole community.”
Yun Che was aware that his sister worried that he would run into any accident carrying the baby. But at the moment like this, it was absolutely impossible for him to hide in the space.
“What about you? Who’s gonna protect you?”
Yun Yao blurted out without thinking. Being five months pregnant, how could Yun Che go to fight?
“Me. I can protect myself. Say no more, sis. Just get in. I’m afraid the battle has started out there.”
After holding back for a short while, Yun Che urged his sister again. He needed no protection. He was definitely able to protect himself with his strength.
“No. I’m joining you then. You project everyone and I protect you!”
For the first time, Yun Yao rejected his order stubbornly. As a superfunction possessor who was close to level 4, she chose not to hide but to fight since her brother was unwilling to hide.
“Uncle, you got me too. I wanna join you!”
Chenchen yelled, raising his little fat hand high, with the wish to hit the bad guys with his uncle and not to hide in the space.
“You guys, forget it. Heiyu, take my sister and Chenchen with you. Shuiyu, since you don’t want to get in, go fight with Jiawen. But send aunt into the space first.”
Yun Che thought it a waste to argue with them at this moment, so he just agreed with them. He would be with them and protect them from any accident anyways.
“Be careful then.”
Knowing that they would just stir up more trouble staying outside, Zhan Tianlong took Wang Suhua and other people into the space. After closing the space, Yun Che looked back at the 200-something people from the Peak squads and said, “The zombie birds are attacking out there. Long-range superfunction possessors, assist the military in the city wall as a team. Close-range superfunction possessors, guard the community under the charge of Vice Captain Gu.”
Upon hearing the orders, those people divided into two teams automatically. Yun Che walked out of the yard and took out some buses. As Yun Che ordered, Zhu Zeping and Jin Chengxi led the squads to the outer side of the city wall; other close-range superfunction possessors guarded the community under the lead of Wu Kun and Jiang Yuan. In the meanwhile, Gu Mingxuan also issued the same orders to the captains of Chaoyang squads on the phone.
“Captain, Xiu Jie is here.”
Before Jiang Yuan and Xiu Jie came back together, Kong Jiawen had set off with others. Yun Che asked Wu Kun to tell Jiang Yuan about the situation and then said to Xiu Jie, “You stay at home and don’t go around. I’ll ask whoever needs treatment to come to this place directly. Mark my words. Don’ ever go out.”
Xiu Jie was not stupid. He knew Yun Che made this arrangement for the sake of him. There was no such a house as solid as Yun Che’s all over Chaoyang Community.
“Gu, please take care of my house.”
With that said, Yun Che tapped off the ground and flew onto the back of Heiyu. Gu Mingxuan said in a hurry, “Are you going to the city wall?”
“Hmm. But before that, I’m gonna move all the livestock into the space.”
Yun Che nodded as he said. He then patted Heiyu’s huge body which then shot out in an instant. Gu Mingxuan who was going to say something chased Yun Che but soon retreated reluctantly. Before going back to the house with Xiu Jie, Gu Mingxuan took a deep look at the direction where Yun Che disappeared. It was not the time to get worried. The only thing they should do was work together to clear all the zombie birds.
“Hurry up. Take the wounded down. The antidote. Prepare the antidote…”
“Fuck. Go to hell…”
The base in the urban had been in chaos. The number of the zombie birds was far larger than their expectation. Even with the human barricade the superfunction soldiers built together, they still failed to stop all the zombie birds and many of them flew into the base. The ordinary people who failed to avoid the zombie birds were constantly pecked. Even those who managed to hide were eaten by the high-level zombie birds with superfunction. The close-range superfunction possessors of the military and the police kept running through the streets, clearing the zombie birds and dealing with the wounded. However, there were too many zombie birds. Some people who failed to react were surrounded by the zombie birds and eaten neatly in a few minutes with bones and a little bloody flesh remained.
“Commander, too many zombie birds have flown into the base. The officers can’t stand any more. We need military support.”
In the building, Mo Wenyang took his soldiers to defend against the zombie birds. Even though he was level-4, he got hurt. Some of the sparrow-sized zombie birds pecked him when he was careless. Most of the zombie birds were over level-3 and could use superfunctions randomly so that they couldn’t take any precautions.
“Son of a bitch. Adjutant Yang, take your regiment to support the officers. You must minimize the casualties.”
Upon receiving the announcement, Mo Wenyang yelled out as he conducted superfunctions to stop the zombie birds from coming in incessantly. It was a mess all over the city wall. The zombie birds’ dead bodies dotted the ground and beside the wall thickly. The number of the casualties of the superfunction possessors was also large. If one carelessly got approached by a zombie bird, he barely had a chance to survive. The front line was often the most dangerous.
“Commander, you’d better take people to support. Here, you can count on us.”
Adjutant Yang on the other side was too busy to divide his attention. Wei Kan yelled as he moved close to Mo Wenyang who couldn’t be hurt as the base commander and spiritual support of all people.
“Just cut the craps. Senior Wei, Senior Wang, take two regiments to support. This is an order. Stop fucking bargaining with me.”
Since he said so, both Wei Kan and Wang Wei dared to say nothing more. Under Mo Wenyang’s cover, the two of them left the building with their security guards rapidly.
“Go to hell…”
Mo Wenyang created a huge fire ball with one hand and a water whip with the other. He pushed the fire ball away, yelling, and cracked the water whip through the sky. “Brothers, let’s stop the zombie birds from hurting our family. Buck up. Kill them all!”
“Kill them all!”
Hearing that, everyone shouted full of beans and brought out the big guns. Within a minute, people shouted together along the buildings which stretched for several thousand meters. Not only the superfunction soldiers but also the common superfunction possessors worked desperately hard to fend off the zombie birds.
A metallized zombie eagle which should be level-5 suddenly broke the water and fire defense of Mo Wenyang. The eagle suddenly reached out its sharp claws to seize Mo Wenyang by the chest. It was too late for Mo Wenyang to react since he was conducting superfunctions. All he could do was stare at the claws approaching his chest. All witnesses shouted out of scare, the superfunction soldiers in particular. Many people rushed towards him and exerted superfunctions on the zombie eagle like crazy. However, the zombie eagle belonged to the gold attribute and its whole body was metallized. As a result, no superfunction could work on it at all.
“Fuck, what the hell are you doing?”
Yun Che suddenly shouted, seeing the zombie eagle about to rip off Mo Wenyang with its metal sharp claws. In a blink of an eye, the zombie eagle caught nothing, since Mo Wenyang had been taken to the air by Yun Che. The zombie birds failed to attack them who were surrounded by the air membrane.
“I thought I was going to die. Home-Guarding… No, Che. Thank you.”
When Yun Che landed on the ground with him, Mo Wenyang patted his chest to comfort his himself. Yun Che gave a fierce stare at him and was going to say something. Suddenly, Heiyu reached the city wall carrying Yun Yao and Chenchen. The zombie eagle turned around and headed towards them.
“Son of a bitch. Don’t even think about it in front of me!”
Heiyu raised his front claw and then slapped the zombie eagle away. Yun Yao was struck dumb to see the mass of zombie birds in the sky. After all, it had been long since her last fight. But Chenchen didn’t fear at all and even attacked the zombie birds around them with various superfunctions. In order to keep them safe, Heiyu had to move his body swiftly.
“Master, be careful.”
Heiyu didn’t forget to remind his master loudly during the battle. In the meanwhile, the long-range superfunction possessors arrived. Yun Che drew the black long sword that hadn’t hurt people for a long time and said, “Get ready to fight. Go!”
Under his order, over 200 well-trained soldiers took part in the battle. When Mo Wenyang was trying to fight, some white light suddenly hit his body and his wound recovered in a minute.
“You got your duties, Commander. Just get the hell back to command!”
With that said, Yun Che dashed into sky. As he flicked his wrist, the blade with strong true qi turned into some power which burst out and killed a group of zombie birds. How stunning it was!
