Chapter 31 – Clamor
“Open the door!” The door has been barricaded from inside. If Bai Ling really wanted to, she could slash it open with her sword that could cut through steel, but she didn’t because the people inside would lose the protection of this shelter of fortune.
After a night of ordeals, everyone had begun to change their mentality, accepting slowly that the world was no longer what they knew. When Bai Ling appeared, they were all joyful. A young man in his twenties, wearing the convenience store’s employee uniform, stood up and went to open the door.
When she saw their reaction, her eyes sparkled. If it was a month later, those survivors would be amiable to invite her in. They would all be on guard against any stranger.
“Are you sent by the Government to save us?” When they experienced yesterday blood night, the first time they did was to call the police. However, the rescue line was always busy, so when Bai Ling came, they bombarded her with questions.
“I am not.” She went in and answered the young man with the truth. She swept a glance of the interior and saw several excited people. However, her answer quickly doused their enthusiasm, and despair gripped them again.
However, someone quickly snapped out of it and asked in a doubtful voice, “Impossible! You are so powerful, why don’t you save us? Where is your leader? That person must be nearby, right? We have to leave this place or we are all going to die. There are too many monsters roaming around. They want to eat us!”
It was clear to Bai Ling that some people had yet to accept it was already the end of the world they knew.
She swept a cold glance at them. “Get out of here by your own!”
“Y-you… What kind of attitude is that?” Someone said with indignation. Yesterday night had left them traumatized and terrified. After seeing how powerful she was, their fear receded to give birth to hope, but their hopes were quickly dashed by her words. They didn’t even think they were acting selfish and being entitled.
“Yeah, you’re so strong why can’t you kill all the monsters outside?”
Because there are monsters everywhere and coming toward here.
“That’s right!” The other people suddenly realized that if the monsters outside disappeared, they would also be safe.
At that thought, many people got up and wanted to force that strong woman to go kill the zombies outside.
When Bai Ling saw their reactions, she pointed her sword at them. Her sharp eyes stared at them. “Take another step and die!” she coldly spat out.
In front of the aggressive Bai Ling and her sharp sword, the crowd became gloomy. However, they didn’t take her seriously. Instead, her actions sparked their anger.
“As a human, how can you be like this? Do you think you are powerful with that bit of skills and a sword? Do you think you can handle all of us? Wait until the police get here, they will arrest you.”
“Tsk! Tsk! Such a young person, but already dare to murder people in broad daylight.”
“If you have the ability, then come and kill all of us then!”
Bai Ling found these people ridiculous. She could understand that they have yet to adapt themselves to the apocalypse, but just because she was strong, they wanted to pressure her into killing all the zombies outside?! Were they taking her for an immortal cultivator? She couldn’t help sneering at them. “Idiots!”
“You!” Her words thoroughly insulted them. In an instant, they wanted to teach her a lesson. Anyway, she was just blowing hot air with her death threats.
