A Martial Monk from Shaolin Temple will a hundred percent become a Martialist after the Apocalypse. Moreover, the Shaolin Grappling Hands and other fist-type skills that Shaolin Temple was proficient in will all turn into their abilities. Also, they will possess a stronger body and more profound Inner Energy to support these abilities.
Before the Apocalypse, you would not have been able to witness the might of Shaolin Kungfu. Only after the Apocalypse, you will discover how terrifying Shaolin Kungfu was.
The Seventy-Two Supreme Arts of Shaolin shined during the Post-Apocalyptic Era.
“Big Brother, I can jump very high!”
Xiao Xiao excitedly jumped about randomly in the small house, each of her jumps allowed her to touch the roof of the building.
“Xiao Xiao wants to show Sister Little Yu!”
Xiao Xiao excitedly ran out of the house.
Yang Tian was very fatigued after transferring Inner Energy the entire day. He used the opportunity to use Purple Sun Divine Art to alleviate his condition.
Other than cultivating Inner Energy, it was also crucial for a Martialist to improve their physical body. If a person relies solely on cultivating Inner Energy to become a Rank 2 Martialist, they would only be able to display the fighting power that was equivalent to a Rank 1 Martialist.
“Big Brother, Brother Dafu has caught a strange thing from outside.”
Xiao Xiao’s voice attracted Yang Tian’s attention.
A strange thing?
When Yang Tian walked out of the building, he saw Xu Dafu holding onto something tightly in his hand.
“Where did you get this?” Yang Tian’s face was slightly solemn.
“Just nearby, not far from us. There are still many of this.”
Xu Dafu did not seem to notice what the thing in his hand was?
The egg of the Violent Corpse Worm
Why did a Violent Corpse Worm appear now?
It originally should have appeared three days after the Epidemic yet it just appeared the day before the Epidemic. From Xu Dafu’s description, there seem to be several Violent Corpse Worm Eggs near the Manor.
The Violent Corpse Worm itself did not possess any fighting power, but it could form a symbiotic relationship with other creatures, allowing its host to possess greater power.
If a Rank 1 Violent Corpse Worm and an ordinary human forms a symbiosis, that ordinary human would obtain a fighting power not weaker than a Rank 1 Metahuman. If a Rank 1 Violent Corpse Worm forms a symbiosis with a Rank 1 Metahuman, their fighting power will compound, allowing them to erupt power that could match a Rank 2 Metahuman.
However, Violent Corpse Worms live in colonies where a queen would control them. Also, the creatures that formed a symbiotic relationship with them would be controlled by the queen.
Maybe the queen was still laying eggs?
The Violent Corpse Worm Queen would be at its weakest when laying eggs, it would also be extremely sensitive at that period. Xu Dafu had undoubtedly startled the Violent Corpse Worm Queen when he took the worm egg.
“Boss, what is this? It’s very beautiful.”
The Violent Corpse Worm Egg looked like a crystal marble that would make people think that it was an artistic creation.
“It is an egg of a worm. If it hatches, it will dive into your body and slowly turn you into its slave.”
Xu Dafu nearly tossed the worm egg onto the ground.
“Quickly bring me to the place where you found it.”
“But Boss, what do I do with this one?”
Before the egg hatches, it would contain pure essences of energy, making it a relatively good tonic.
Xu Dafu was startled for a moment before he stuffed it inside his mouth.
This time, speed was of the essence, Yang Tian left with Xu Dafu riding on Dark Crimson Fire Wolf.
“It is in that forest up front.”
Dark Crimson Fire Wolf followed Xu Dafu’s instructions and quickly reached the place Xu Dafu mentioned.
“Why… is it gone?”
There were no more worm eggs, but there were several sticky slags on the ground.
“The eggs have hatched, you guys stay sharp.”
Yang Tian immediately identified the slags on the ground as something that was left behind after the worm eggs hatched. However, from what was left, he could determine that the Violent Corpse Worms had only hatched not long ago, the Violent Corpse Worm Queen should be still around here.
Yang Tian used Examine, everything within 360 degrees with no blind spots was displayed as an image inside Yang Tian’s mind.
45 Degrees South-West direction.
Possessing Purple Sun Divine Art now, when Yang Tian withdrew the Soft Bone Blade, a trace of blade energy was sent out.
Yang Tian was shocked by his own actions as well, when did he learn this? However, from Yang Tian’s experience, he quickly linked the blade energy to the Purple Sun Divine Art.
Blade energy struck the shrubs where the Violent Corpse Worm Queen was hiding.
The Violent Corpse Worm Queen looked like a red-color basketball, not a threatening look and beside it were several thumb size worms. As they have yet to find a host, they were unable to display any fighting power, even an ordinary person could squash them to death with their feet.
“Release… me. I… will… give you power.”
The Violent Corpse Worm Queen used its weakened Mental Power to try communication with Yang Tian.
“Either you submit, or you die.”
Yang Tian’s reply was simple and straightforward as well, he would not allow the Violent Corpse Worm Queen to choose other options.
Having heard Yang Tian’s reply, the Violent Corpse Worm Queen was silent for a long time, one could observe the struggle in its eyes.
It knew perfectly well that it currently poses no threat, but as a Violent Corpse Worm Queen, it was unwilling to become the slave of other creatures.
“We… can cooperate.”
“Submit or die.”
Yang Tian slowly approached the Violent Corpse Worm Queen with the Soft Bone Blade, the Violent Corpse Worm Queen also knew that the creature in front of it would not give it too much time to consider.
“Drop your mental defenses.”
Yang Tian sent a small trace of Mental Power and tried probing into the Violent Corpse Worm Queen.
The Mental Power of a Violent Corpse Worm Queen was incredibly terrifying, even though it was currently at its weakened state, Yang Tian still did not dare to forcefully tame it unless it wholly submits.
“It is indeed fake.”
Yang Tian had already guessed what the Violent Corpse Worm Queen was scheming. The latter wanted to fake its submission so that Yang Tian would drop his guard before sending the Violent Corpse Worms into Yang Tian’s body and try to control him.
However, Yang Tian never had any thoughts that the Violent Corpse Worm Queen will submit so easily.
“I am a King… of the Insect World, I would never allow… myself to be controlled by a weak human.”
Seeing that its scheme failed, the Violent Corpse Worm Queen’s emotions started to become violent.
The Violent Corpse Worm Queen’s Mental Power was stronger than Yang Tian’s, which made it hard for Dark Taming to succeed. However, this did not mean that Yang Tian was out of methods.
Yang Tian was able to cast Dark Terror for several seconds with his Rank 2 Mental Power, a short duration of Dark Terror should be enough to break through the mental defenses of the Violent Corpse Worm Queen.
The Violent Corpse Worm Queen’s energy instantly took a hit, nearly reaching the point of death.
A red halo appeared from Yang Tian’s body and wrapped onto the Violent Corpse Worm Queen’s body. Similarly, a red halo also emerged from the Violent Corpse Worm Queen’s body and entered Yang Tian.
The Violent Corpse Worm Queen was a rare creature, it was one of the species possessing the bloodline of the King in the Insect World, Dark Taming and Ordinary Taming would not have much of an effect on it. Soul Taming was the highest level Taming skill that a Beast Tamer could employ, it was taming on the level of the soul.
If Yang Tian dies, the Violent Corpse Worm Queen would undoubtedly die with him. If the Violent Corpse Worm Queen dies, Yang Tian’s soul would also receive a lethal blow that has a 90% chance of him dying too and a 9.9% chance of turning him into a cripple.
