The face of the escaped Guan Qing Xue was already filled with knife scars by then, no one knew what she looked like in the past.
“How did you know?”
Guan Qing Xue was slightly startled, Xiao Mei Yi was also one of the students that were here to steal food. However, from Yang Tian’s expression, he did not seem to be acquainted with Xiao Mei Yi. So how did he know her name?
Also, how did he know about her boyfriend, Duo Liang?
Having obtained Guan Qing Xue’s confirmation, Yang Tian’s hand lightly trembled. In his previous life, Guan Qing Xue’s death was completely caused by his selfishness. He listened to a rumor from someone and ventured into a Bone Dragon’s nest to look for a Devil Fruit. In the end, there was no Devil Fruit and he earned the rage of the Bone Dragon instead.
For the sake of allowing him to escape, Guan Qing Xue paid the price by self-destructing, delaying the Bone Dragon and providing Yang Tian the opportunity to run away.
Yang Tian would forever remember that scene, the tears that formed on Guan Qing Xue’s eyes the moment she was about to self-destruct was deeply and painfully engraved inside Yang Tian’s heart.
“You do not need to know. From today onwards, I will protect you”
Yang Tian did his best to adjust his state of mind. However, when he looked at Guan Qing Xue, it still revealed traces of tenderness.
Having gotten used to Yang Tian’s cold demeanor, when she felt the gentleness emitted from Yang Tian’s eyes, she could not help but feel slightly unadjusted to it.
Guan Qing Xue’s students were also shocked by Yang Tian’s change. Just moments ago, he was filled with murderous intent, yet now he had suddenly become so gentle.
Guan Qing Xue wanted to say something, but the next moment, Yang Tian’s hand was on her cheek causing her to uncontrollably shudder. Even her boyfriend had never acted so intimately with her before. What’s more, it was done in front of her students as well.
“Can you save my student”
Guan Qing Xue was still slightly affected by Yang Tian’s actions, but Hu Jun’s situation was dire. With Yang Tian’s change in attitude towards her, Guan Qing Xue hoped to seek his help.
“You do not need to worry. He is a Rank 1 Metahuman, he will not die even when his heart was injured”
Yang Tian said without a care.
However, Guan Qing Xue was still nervous about Hu Jun’s injuries and looked at Yang Tian with pleading eyes.
This was also the first time Yang Tian saw such a look coming from Guan Qing Xue.
Yang Tian turned and left the warehouse, returning with a carrot in his hand.
Yang Tian did not care if Hu Jun could chew or not as he stuffed the entire thing inside his mouth.
The carrot was forcefully stuffed inside Hu Jun’s stomach. After eating the carrot, the injury on Hu Jun’s chest started to heal.
Within three minutes, the wound on Hu Jun’s chest had disappeared. Hu Jun himself also felt inconceivable as he felt his chest to confirm.
“It… it is fine now”
Lee Si Kai was also looking with some disbelieve, but it was true that Hu Jun was no longer injured.
“When did carrots become so awesome”
“Since you have recovered, you can leave now”
There was no trace of politeness when Yang Tian was addressing them, the only reason he let them live was because of Guan Qing Xue.
When they left the warehouse, Yang Tian checked his stores. Fortunately, they did not manage to eat too much.
Eight boxes of hardtacks and eleven bottles of mineral water have been consumed, of which, there was still water left inside five bottles. Yang Tian combined the remaining water within three bottles before storing them.
As for the other food, they had not touched them.
Yang Tian walked out of the warehouse and discovered that they were still within the manor. However, the mutated pig was watching over them, so they dare not move about much.
“Qing Xue, it is safer for you to stay with me”
“Then can my students remain here as well?”
They were not related to Yang Tian, he would not allow them to remain here.
“It is best that the rest of you get lost now, I hold a grudge very well”
The Tang Saber on Yang Tian’s hand gleamed under the moonlight and emitted a chilling aura, even Lee Si Kai was feeling apprehensive of it.
“We can give you money, just allow us to stay here”
Hu Jun took out a stack of cash from his pocket, the total amount was roughly two thousand dollars.
“It is just a pile of useless paper, I will not want it even if you give them to me”
Yang Tian looked at Hu Jun as though he was looking at an idiot, it caused the latter to keep his money embarrassingly.
“I have something to exchange with you, I hope you can allow us to stay here”
This time, it was Lee Si Kai who spoke. He took out a strange looking fruit.
A Devil Fruit?
Yang Tian was rather surprised, the fruit within Lee Si Kai’s hands was the Devil Fruit from <One Piece> World. Just that with Yang Tian’s current Mental Power, he was unable to identify what Devil Fruit it was.
The Devil Fruits were a peculiar existence within the Post-Apocalyptic Era, a human normally would only possess one type of ability. However, the Devil Fruit could allow a person to possess a second ability, the ability would depend on what attributes the Devil Fruit possessed.
The Devil Fruit was also something very rare in the Post-Apocalyptic Era. Yang Tian did come across some Devil Fruits in his previous life, but none was able to satisfy Yang Tian, that was also why Yang Tian did not absorb a Devil Fruit in his previous life.
“Where did you get this?”
“I… picked it up”
The Devil Fruit was something very rare, Yang Tian was truly surprised that Lee Si Kai had found one.
Lee Si Kai also looked at Yang Tian nervously, he did not know what he had picked up as well. He was only trying his luck when he took it out.
“This fruit was indeed not bad”
“Does that mean you agreed?”
Guan Qing Xue thought Yang Tian had agreed and looked at Yang Tian hopefully.
Yang Tian originally did not plan to let them stay here, but seeing the gaze of Guan Qing Xue, he finally chose to agree.
The difference between the previous you and the current you were truly big.
“All of you can stay, however, you are only allowed to move within that area”
Yang Tian pointed at the place where he kept the domesticated animals. They would die if they approached the area of the fruit trees while the area with crops was too precious to Yang Tian, he would not allow any strangers to approach there as well. The only place left for them would be where he kept his animals.
“What? That place is not fit for humans”
Some of the female students immediately pointed out, they were all pampered darlings, how could they stay in that sort of place. Just the strange smells that were coming from the pens was enough to make them feel suffocated.
“You can leave if you don’t want to, I have never forced you to remain here”
What a joke, you still want good conditions in the Post-Apocalyptic Era? Haven’t you recognized your situation yet?
However, even if Yang Tian said as such, they would rather stay here then to face the terrifying monsters outside.
They entered the pig pens under Yang Tian’s watchful gaze. They were a total of nine students, four females five males. the pig pen was large enough to accommodate all of them.
“Qing Xue, you will stay by my side”
Yang Tian pulled Guan Qing Xue who was about to go in as well.
Guan Qing Xue was startled for a moment, especially when Yang Tian’s powerful hands were pulling her, she was unable to reject him.
