3.21 – END – Downfall of Humanity – Last Battle part 2

A loud alarming sound resonated throughout the cities, bringing fear to all the people. Every person grabbed their equipment and rushed to their assigned meeting point. According to the sound, they moved towards the Central city. Looking up the skies, they saw a humongous white snake floating above them. Atop of Kuro sat Bing Shi in a cross-legged position, waiting for the rest to appear. While Ren Han flew towards his ship, to gain as much information as possible.

Everyone looked at Bing Shi with a questioning gaze. They never saw her with Kuro in real life. Usually, it would be five guards surrounding her. Still, nobody dared to get close. The sight of Kuro and Bing Shi together is too intimidating!

In this world, nobody felt completely safe. They can’t tell when another apocalypse will emerge. People have no choice but to be always prepared for the worst. They didn’t dare provoke another citizen mindlessly. Despite looking weak, who knows what power that person is hiding? What if that person gets stronger and takes revenge on them one day? Rather than going against each other, they focused on the same enemy.

Citizens felt utterly hopeless. A few million against billions? How is that possible?! In a month, a never-ending wave of zombies would appear near the central cities. To prevent the city from being destroyed, four Bing Shi bases were built in the open field.

It took two days for Yi Zen’s army to appear. Children and those incapable of fighting were sent inside Fu Lian’s space. When other bases received the message, they hurriedly moved towards Bing Shi’s direction.

· · ─── · ⊱❈⊰· ─── · ·

Inside Bing Shi’s tent, Ren Han, sitting on the armchair, stretched out his arms for Bing Shi to sit on his lap, “During my absence, go and hide in Fu Lian’s base,” he requested softly while hugging her from behind. The more both of them accepted that he is Xuan Mu, the more memories of Bing Shi flooded into his mind.

“No way. Locked with so many shrimps? Do you want me to go insane?” Bing Shi immediately refused.

Ren Han hugged her tighter, “Please. For me,” his last words were almost inaudible.

“If I weren’t confident enough, I’d hide,” Bing Shi patted his arms in assurance, chuckling, “Why when we are finally getting close, there’s always something getting in between us?”

“Miss Bing Shi, people are waiting,” Qua Tao knocked on the door.

“See?” Bing Shi chuckled.

Ren Han held in a cuss. Feeling her wriggling uncomfortably, he retreated his arms, sighing, “After all of this, let’s get closer.”

Bing Shi stood up and put on her gas mask, “Sure, If we survive.”

“We will,” A flash of killing intent passed through his sharp dark eyes.

· · ─── · ⊱❈⊰· ─── · ·

On the open field, millions of people watched the three most distinguished individuals with worshipping eyes. Standing on top of the platform, they emitted power and authority.

“This is not war. We don’t wait for our enemy to surrender. There is no mercy. No forgiveness. No saving. It’s their loss, or ours. Nothing in between.” Yi Zen’s speech was short and blunt.

Bing Shi, knowing everyone’s struggles, encouraged them, “It’s hard to find your purpose or a will to fight. When all you do is trying to survive. It was always do or die. But if you hang on a little longer, just a little bit longer, a miracle will occur. I’ll be that miracle.”

Ren Han was more than direct, “They already lost. It’s our win. I know you all like proof. I’ll be your proof.”

Nobody saw the face of that man in a black cloak shrouded in mystery. They felt their legs swoon.

Back at the base, when Bing Shi didn’t want to hide, everyone started to protest. Those are evolved zombies; they are capable of logical thinking! It’s too dangerous for her! Knowing it will be impossible to talk her out of it, Yi Zen made a drastic step, “Take her inside your space,” he spoke to Fu Lian when they were alone. Fu Lian nodded in understanding.

But what did Bing Shi do?! To prove herself, she always used actions instead of words. When she saw Yi Zen and Fu Lian walking towards her, she stretched out her hand towards a nearby soldier. The soldier started to bump the barrier around his head, afraid to use skills against his head, he gasped for air. Another soldier started to panic when he lost all senses of his surroundings. There was no light, no sounds, no smell.

Everyone watched the scene in terror and looked around for the culprit.

“It was me,” Bing Shi called out and let go of the soldiers, smiling, “I’m not as weak as you thought, huh?”

“Why did you hide it until now?” Yi Zen’s expression turned dark.

Bing Shi shrugged off her shoulders, “To find and trap my enemies,” she waved at Fu Lian, “Thank you for providing a shelter for those in need. Those little ones are our future.”

“You don’t need to thank me,” Fu Lian took out a few bottles of her magical bottles and a box with sweet potatoes, and handled them to Bing Shi, “Take it.”

Bing Shi accepted them with a grin, “Aw, thank you.” Before Fu Lian could catch Bing Shi into her space, Bing Shi flew high into the sky, “I’m in a hurry. Bye-bye~,” saying, she flew out of the base.

Now, everyone doubts Bing Shi’s fighting skills. Does she really don’t know how to fight? They thought about the times when she’d always run away from the combat like a scared chicken.

· · ─── · ⊱❈⊰· ─── · ·

Not waiting for the zombies to appear at their doorstep, Yi Zen’s and Ren Han’s people tried to track down the zombie emperor. Ren Han boosted everyone’s confidence when he used his power to use a nuclear bomb to kill millions of zombies in one shot. Sadly, he lost all the nuclei in the process.

Definitely the strongest man.

Or not?

Yi Zen didn’t hold back and used his secret arsenal of weapons.

Bing Shi was right. Humans are the scariest! Not slacking down, they were on high alert at all times. That zombie emperor or emperors could appear among them at any time.

Ren Han’s and Yi Zen’s base started to back down, feeling tired. As zombies didn’t need any rest, they fought days and nights in full strength. Day by day, they got closer and closer to Central city, reaching it, the battle continued nonstop. On Bing Shi’s side, Every four hours, a new batch of citizens would switch places with the battered ones.

“Kuro, who might be the one controlling them?”

[ I don’t know.]

Above all, Bing Shi sitting atop of Kuro’s head switched from a defense mode to an attack mode. After observing the chaotic battlefield, crushing a speed pill, she targetted all the zombies which could move in an inhuman speed, fly, or teleport. Carrying hundreds of zombies before a group of attackers, the fire users manipulated their powers to burn them all down.

The amount of zombies was endless. Despite the number of dead bodies, they didn’t seem to lessen. Bing Shi watched in desperation as one citizen after another fell prey to the undead.

Switching back to defense mode, she protected the humans from being scratched or bitten.

On the other side, there were battles with a single person taking down hundreds of zombies at a time. They usually fought alone or with a wind user. These human monsters were mainly from the combat bases. Earth users burrowing zombies deep under the ground, Fire users dissolving and melting all bodies with their heat manipulation. Water users were drying those corpses until they become dust. While wind users were here to act as a support, they created windshields and grouped up zombies for their teammates to take down.

Meanwhile, in the front lines, there was Yi Zen and Ren Han. For everyone’s safety, they fought far away from the main battlefield. Food from Fu Qin and water from Fu Lian enabled them to fight without a break. Being a primary threat, one of them lured out the zombie emperor.

“I got him. It’s Ma Jie.” Ren Han spoke to a communicator, wearing a tank top, sweat dripped down his hard muscles, his food crushing Ma Jie’s chest, “He seems to recognize me.”

Having no limbs, Ma Jie sent out an order to the zombies. All the zombies looked up at the sky, out of the sudden, they moved in Ren Han’s direction.

“What are you planning?” Bing Shi asked suspiciously.

“I’m going to finish this fast,” answered Ren Han nonchalantly. Carrying Ma Jie, he lured the zombies in the opposite direction of Central city, “I didn’t hold you in my arms for a week. I miss you too much. Any longer, and I’ll go crazy.”

Bing Shi facepalmed, her face flushed, “Stop it. You’re making me blush.”

Everyone who heard their words coughed up blood. Weren’t they in a grandson – grandma relationship?!

In a safe distance, Ren Han burned Ma Jie’s body and absorbed his nucleus; his strength increased. Not under anybody’s control, the zombies returned to normal.
After this commotion, it was decided to destroy every zombie as fast as possible. They would instead give up all the nuclei than experience such a horror again.

· · ─── · ⊱❈⊰· ─── · ·

Inside a forest, Ren Han opened his eyes wide, “Bing Shi not, again,” Ren Han eyed the girl in an above-knee black socks and skirt, especially at the visible skin between her skirt and socks, “How are you going to fly in a skirt?”

Wearing a hoodie, Bing Shi defended herself, “I’m wearing safety pants underneath,” she lifted her skirt, “See?”

“…” Ren Han sat down on the blanket and switched his gaze towards the hole in the ground, and the black plastic bag containing her items, “What’s the need for this? Didn’t you have Yi Zen as your pocket dimension?”

Bing Shi took out a package of wet wipes, “What if my mission didn’t go as I planned? What if I get kidnapped? With those items, I would be able to take control of the situation,” holding a package of sanitary pads, “Oh, I’m almost out of these,” she put all the items inside her backpack, standing up, she walked towards the silent Ren Han and hugged his waist, “What’s wrong?”

Ren Han looked at her eyes, and hugged her back, “I thought about how we never did it in the open. Just imagine. Me. You. Against the tree. Yum.”

“We didn’t even kiss yet,” Bing Shi raised her eyebrow.

Ren Han showed a pained expression, “Who needs your kisses when I have your hugs? I’m content. No, I take it back. I need a girlfriend.”

Bing Shi put her head on his chest, giggling, “Ok.”

Ren Han’s arms around her tightened. Processing her words, his eyes showed confusion, “Ok…What? Did…did you… What? Bing Shi. I just took it as you agreeing to be my girlfriend. And as we all know, your words are definite.”

Bing Shi started to laugh, pushing him back, she sat on his chest, and whispered to his mouth, barely grazing her lips against his skin, “You won. Kiss me.”

ᗒ Ren Han felt his heart exploding

ᗒ Ren Han felt his heart exploding. Grabbing her neck, he lifted his head and seized her lips in a hungry kiss. Parting his lips, before he could dominate her, her little tongue invaded his mouth. She fiddled with him as if he was her long lost plaything, licking and teasing everything on its way, making him gasp for air, stimulating him so much that he forgot to breathe, “…nggh…”

Separating, he took a deep breath, and showed his tongue against hers in midair, curling and twisting aggressively, her saliva dripping down on his chin. When he was finally inside of her mouth, he closed their distance, and took control of her lips, savoring and taking in her taste. ᗕ

His heartbeat was so strong that he thought his chest would burst. It only beats like this towards her. Does her heart beat like that towards him? The more they kissed, the dizzier he became. Tears started to trickle down his eyes. What can he do to make her belong only to him and nobody else? Who would have thought that one day, for her, he would sacrifice himself?

He started to lose control over his mind…

The man below Bing Shi opened his eyes abruptly. Seeing a foreign face, he frowned in disgust, and showed the unfamiliar woman away, “Who are you?!”

Not realizing his own power, the woman crashed against the nearest tree, her internal organs were destroyed, her bones shattered.

Wiping down his swollen lips, he turned around, confused. Where is his Bing Shi? Shouldn’t he be dead? What is he doing here? When LuLu Tan appeared in his mind, his world collapsed. He opened his eyes in terror and flew towards the motionless woman lying lifelessly on the ground. Panicking, Xuan Mu took a pain-numbing pill from her hoodie and crushed it inside her mouth. Crying uncontrollably, he picked her up in a bride style and flew towards his ship, “Bing Shi, it’s me. Your Xuan Mu.”

Xuan Mu?

“Bing Shi, wake up. You can’t fall asleep.” Not hearing any response Xuan Mu groaned in agony. Getting a message from Kuro, he has five minutes. Hiding her face with her hoodie, he dashed into the infirmary, placing her on the bed, Xuan Mu ordered his subordinate to heal Bing Shi.

The woman reacted immediately; she put her hand above Bing Shi’s body and started to heal her while ignoring her BOSS’s indistinct whispering.

Xuan Mu called Yi Zen and asked for Fu Lian’s magical water and all his healers.

While waiting for help to arrive, Xuan Mu put an earphone into his ears and whispered to her, “Didn’t I tell you to eat properly? Why did you follow after me?”

“I missed you,” Thanks to Kuro, Bing Shi’s clear voice resonated in his ears, “Xuan Mu…Am I a cheater?”

Xuan Mu started to sob, “No. Bing Shi, you are not… You made me fall in love with you again.” Despite knowing that there’s his soul nearby, she still finished her mission first, for him, “Next time, do it again. Make me fall hard for you like you always do.”

“Um…I’ll try. If I’m not a cheater, why did you attack me?”

“Bing Shi, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to,” Xuan Mu continued with his whispering, not noticing the cold sweat on the healer’s face. He kissed Bing Shi’s forehead, “My memories switched to the time I died. Ziek’s memories followed shortly after,” his lips traced down her lips, “Bing Shi, I love you. I love you so much,” he continued to peck the edges of her lips, “Would you like to go on a date with me? I have a surprise for you.”

“I love you too. Ah, I missed our dates so so much. No~, tell it to me now, pretty please~.”

“Boss,” The healer panted, “Miss Bing Shi is dead.”

“WHAT DID YOU SAY?!?” Xuan Mu roared out. Picking Bing Shi up, he held the cold body against his chest, “I’ve been speaking with her this whole time! Right, Bing Shi?” He looked lovingly at the cute girl in his arms, “Continue healing her.”

“Right. Xuan Mu, I’ll have to leave soon. Be good, and wait for me. I’ll find you again.”

Bing Shi looked at her fading astral body. She cried, but no tears fell, she tried to hug him, but her hand passed through his body. Xuan Mu’s power was just too great. She died the moment he pushed her away.

“Bing Shi, what are you talking about?” XuanMu asked, his expression desperate, “You can’t leave me.” Hearing no more response, he held the body even closer to him. “Bing Shi, don’t be so quiet. Talk to me. Please.” There’s still Fu Lian’s magical water. He stood up and flew out of his ship, towards Yi Zen’s base.

On his way, Xuan Mu never stopped talking to the body in his arms, he wanted to make her smile, but there was none, “Why, whenever I carry you in a bridal style, it’s always because you are injured, hm?”

“Do you remember how we always thought that except death, nothing could separate us? I’m starting to despise it. It’s trying to separate us again.” Feeling danger coming his way, Xuan Mu looked up at the raging Yi Zen and the whole army behind him.

Fu Lian appeared from behind Yi Zen, as soon as she took the flask with the water from her space, it moved towards Xuan Mu’s direction.

Before everyone’s eyes, the man in the black robe took a gulp of the water. Unable to study Bing Shi’s full face, they could only watch how Xuan Mu, leaned his head down towards her lips, transferring the liquid from mouth to mouth. Seeing no response, tears trickled down his eyes, parting her lips, he kissed her passionately, showing everyone whom this woman belongs to.

Fu Lian caught Xuan Mu’s mocking gaze on her. He looked at her for a second, before his attention returned to the girl in his arms. Fu Lian’s heart skipped a beat. He was never interested in her. This whole time, it was hin, making fun of her.

Unable to watch anymore, Yi Zen flashed before Xuan Mu, “Give her to me,” his tone demanding and oppressive.

Xuan Mu stopped kissing his Bing Shi, and lifted his gaze, looking at Yi Zen indifferently, “Bing Shi, don’t you have enough brothers? Why did another one appear out of nowhere, hm?” he asked softly.

Yi Zen was about to take his little sister from this man by force when a great firewall stopped him from doing so.

Xuan Mu’s indifferent expression became hostile, his dreadful voice spoke out from behind the flame pillar, “You are lucky, that I don’t keep any secret away from my Bing Shi. Or else, you’d be gone the moment; you wanted to take her away from me.”

Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

The more everyone wanted to distinguish the fire, the more it grew on size. The light pillar created a world phenomenon; everyone could see it. If it continues, there’d be a hole in the atmosphere!

Inside the fire, Xuan Mu called out to the HQ to take him away. He won’t stay back, do nothing, and wait for his Bing Shi to find him.

· · ─── · ⊱❈⊰· ─── · ·

Soldiers looked up at the top of the platform. She’d always be sitting there, accompanying them, no matter the weather. The person, who would always dangle her legs in the air playfully, the person they should’ve been protecting, is now gone. Wiping a few tears from their eyes, they created their own families and continued to live on. These particular families would become the most influential powerhouses in the world, passing their teaching to their successors; they’d continue with their duty, protecting the weak.

After the meeting ended, Yi Zen looked at his right. There, she would be, listening to their strategies in silence. Standing up, he wandered into his office. It’s been a month after that incident. They couldn’t find her nor his remains. Dropping on his chair, he covered his face with his hands, trying to hold his composure, his lips trembled.

*Knock*

*Knock*

“Come in.”

Qua Tao passed through the door and saw the sorry state of his general. Holding a letter, he put it on the table, “Miss Bing Shi told me to give you this on this day.”

When Qua Tao left, Yi Zen opened the letter with shaky hands, in the hope that it’s one of her pranks, and that she is alright.

•─────────•❇•─────────•

I could only reach the skies, for you were the wings behind my back.

I could obtain all the glory, for you were the strength beside my side.

~ Bing Shi

PS: Are you be any chance worried about your little sister’s whereabouts? I don’t want to brag, but I’m probably saving another world from destruction, hehe.

•─────────•❇•─────────•

When he saw a picture of an unfamiliar girl, grinning at him with a bright smile, a few drops of water dripped down his eyes.

As he thought. His little sister is truly beautiful.

ARC THREE – END

╔════ Author’s note ═════╗

Uff… What a way to wake up the sleeping beauty, don’t you think so?

ヽ(*゚ー゚*)ノ

I wanted a bittersweet ending for ARC 3, not bad nor good. Are you satisfied with it? ヾ(・ω・*)ノ

It’s time to continue our journey in ARC 4. Yay~ (~‾▿‾)~

Any thoughts on what ARC would be?

It’s heavily inspired by the song below:

1. Firstly, it reminds me of the relationship between Bing Shi and Xuan Mu. ✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧

2. Secondly, it has to do something with ARC 4’s plot. (。•̀ᴗ-)✧
