Immortal in The Apocalypse – 23

Chapter 23

Inside the small tent, five tall men sat on chairs like a good student ready to study. Seeing their serious expressions and straight sitting postures, Zhu Lin chuckled lightly.

“Please be at ease. I just wanted to ask about the current situation.”

Hearing her words, they all breathed a sigh of relief. Fortunately, she didn’t want them to pay for the unauthorized use of her rabbit’s healing abilities. After they successfully left the base under the zombie encirclement, they suffered heavy casualties.

Many survivors died, most of the ability users were injured and in urgent need of medical treatment. It is a pity that the battle was raging at that time and it was too late to transport the materials from the base warehouse. Most of the supplies have been used up, and there are not enough medicines now.

Seeing that they were finally relaxed, she said, “Can any of you tell me what happens when I lose consciousness?”

They looked at each other, but no one spoke. Before they got here, their captain had warned them not to let her know about their situations. Zou Wuhan thought about it and decided to tell her the truth. They still need her help if they want to get through the cold winter. If Ye Yu blamed him in the future, he could only accept his fate.

Determined, he looked at her and told her what had happened in the past three days. After listening to his story, she finally understood how bad their situation was now. Abandoning the base, there are fewer than five hundred survivors, and the place where they originally decided to build the underground city can no longer be used.

The research department under Mu Zhexi also lost more than half of its members. Without rest, without equipment, no suitable place to build the underground city, and tomorrow is the last day before the cold winter comes.

Half of them were injured and there was not enough medical equipment, medicines and medical personnel. No wonder they ask Tu Tu to help heal the injured. Looking at them, she saw worry hidden in their calm faces.

At first, she just wanted to get more crystal nuclei and the cooperation between them was a good way to easily get crystal nuclei. But after knowing them for a few days and going through life and death battles together, she couldn’t ignore these humans when she could help them.

“What are you going to do now?” She asked.

This time, it was not Zou Wuhan who spoke, but the quiet Huo Ming.

“We’re doing our best to survive, but there’s not much we can do. General Ye has given an order and the temporary base is halfway done. It’s just… this kind of temporary base, we don’t know if it can keep out the cold and help us through this cold winter. For the zombie tide after winter, forget it. These kinds of buildings won’t be able to stand it.”

Zhu Lin lowered her eyes, lost in thought. In order to keep out the cold, she can arrange formations for them. But the formation requires a steady supply of spiritual energy. The energy of this world is very thin. After thinking for a while, her eyes suddenly lit up. She raised her eyes, a faint smile appeared on her pale lips.

“I can help you survive the cold winter. Would you like to listen to my plan?” She asked mysteriously.

They looked at each other and nodded quickly. If she really has a way to help them get through this cold winter, they’ll listen to her. Don’t say it once, even a thousand times they are willing to listen to her.

“Do you want to talk to Uncle Ye?” Zou Wuhan asked.

“I can just talk to anyone with authority.”


Since the situation is urgent, she wants to complete the formation as soon as possible. Getting off the bed, she suddenly felt dizzy.


“Zhu Lin!”

She stabilized her body with the support of Quan Yun, and then gave them a reassuring smile. “I’m fine. Let’s go.”

Tu Tu was in her arms as she walked out of the tent with the others. There is a difference between hearing a story and seeing it with your own eyes. Listening to Zou Wuhan’s story, she already felt sorry for them. But now that she saw it with her own eyes, she couldn’t describe how she felt. Their situation was worse than he told her.

“This way.” Zou Wuhan saw her stop and motioned her to follow.

She followed them to the largest tent, passing wounded survivors lying on the ground groaning in pain.

“Uncle Ye, Zhu Lin said that she has a way to help us through this cold winter.”

Zou Wuhan opened the tent and walked in. As soon as he looked up, he saw Ye Yu’s black face. He felt a chill running through his spine. If eyes could kill, he would have died a thousand times. Before Ye Yu could speak, he quickly led Zhu Lin in.

Seeing that she was finally awake, Ye Guang smiled at her. “It’s good that you’re finally awake. Thank you for saving my wife and youngest son. Please take a seat, Miss Zhu.”

As usual, Hou Ming pulled up the chair for her to sit down. This time, only she and Ye Guang sat while the others stood around the square table. On the desk, piles of papers and files were scattered all over the place.

Ye Guang glanced at his youngest son, then looked at Zhu Lin. “How do you feel?”

She smiled politely and said, “It’s all right now.”

Looking at her pale face and weak body, he didn’t take her words seriously.

“Just now Xiao Han said you have a way to get through this cold winter?”

“Yes.” She nodded.

“Miss Zhu, please feel free to tell us.”

She said in a slightly hoarse voice: “I can arrange a formation and build a barrier. This barrier can keep out the cold and cover human’s breath. But this formation requires continuous spiritual energy to maintain. This formation is built on the basis of the one hundred and eight star formation of the four sacred beasts.”

They listened carefully to her explanation, but couldn’t understand what she was saying. What is spiritual energy? What is the one hundred and eight star formation array? They had never heard of it before.

With a light cough, Ye Guang said embarrassedly, “This… Miss Zhu, can you repeat what you just said?”

She was calm while repeating her explanation. But these people still don’t understand. She looked helplessly at their confused faces. Is it too difficult to understand? After pondering for a moment, she reconstructed her own words before opening her mouth.

“Simply put, I can build a barrier, and you provide the energy to keep it going.”

This time, they finally understood. You should skip those confusing explanations, ah. Ye Guang secretly let out a sigh of relief. It’s really not easy to talk to this young lady.

“What kind of energy do you need?” He asked with a serious expression.

“Spiritual energy. It can be extracted from crystal nuclei, or it can be provided by people with ability.”

Ye Guang nodded and asked again. “Do you need any materials to build the barrier?”

Zhu Lin shook her head. This world didn’t have the materials to build the formation, so she won’t ask them to prepare it. She can just use her own material instead.

“There’s no need. I can just use the material I have. Do you want to use this base as your main base or a temporary base?”

“We plan to move out after the cold winter to avoid the zombie tide.” Ye Yu replied to her.

“I understand. Then I’ll build the formation now.”

“Let’s go together.”

Before she could refuse, Ye Yu had already put down the document in his hand and stepped forward to help her up. He took her arm, supported her and said, “Where do you want to arrange the formation?”

Zhu Lin looked at him for a while and said, “The center of this temporary base.”


Then, under the watchful eyes of his father and his team members, he helped her out of the tent carefully. Behind him, they looked at each other with teasing smiles on their faces. When the two of them left the tent and walked far enough, the group started to gossip.
