The eight people used the remaining five minutes of the invisibility cloak to quickly evacuate with their supplies .
The invisible cloak was an grade card and it was quite easy to use . They just needed to cover the bags with the cloak and the bags would also become invisible . Therefore, even though the eight of them acted collectively, they didn’t attract the attention of the bugs .
However, eight people moving invisibly might end up splitting so Yu Hanjiang thought of a method . He would bring Xiao Lou in the lead using the light footwork while Xiao Lou used the lantern above him as a guide .
The lanterns obtained in 8 of Spades could not only illuminate the way but it also prevented tigers, wolves and other wild animals from coming closer . Of course, the bugs weren’t beasts but they were afraid of fire . The ancient lanterns were lit with candles which was a fire . The lone bugs left behind on the streets wouldn’t want to get closer if they found a burning lamp flying in the sky .
A lantern floating and moving in the air felt like a ghost movie . However, all the team members knew it was Xiao Lou’s location and they just followed the lantern .
Xiao Lou was carried in Yu Hanjiang’s arms and they jumped lightly the entire way without encountering any obstacles .
The city had entered winter and the temperature dropped sharply tonight . As everyone was walking, it started snowing . Under the illumination of the street lights, the snowflakes fell like white goose feathers . The low temperature made it difficult for the snowflakes to melt and a white blanket quickly formed on the ground .
After leaving the city centre, traffic congestion eased slightly and some vehicles appeared on the road . However, compared to the usual traffic, the number of vehicles on the streets tonight were sharply reduced and the speed had also skyrocketed . Private cars were driven like they were sports cars . Obviously, citizens learned from the Internet that there were many crazy people in the central area and they were madly escaping .
There were only five minutes of stealth time so Yu Hanjiang’s group of eight used various displacement cards to hurry up .
During the time when Yu Hanjiang checked the information in the afternoon, he took a pen and paper from Old Mo’s office to draw a rough map of the city . He looked at it while moving . He led the way and everyone wouldn’t get lost in the strange city .
By the end of the invisibility time, everyone arrived by the edge of a bridge .
This was a bridge spanning over one kilometre and it connected the city centre and the east district . It was one of the iconic landmarks of the city and was spectacularly built . There were constantly changing colours on the bridge . There were also sidewalks and a one metre wide rubber trace built along both sides of the river . Usually, this was a good place for citizens to run and exercise .
However, at this moment, no figures were visible on the bridge or the riverside . There were only occasionally a few private cars driving quickly across the bridge .
There wasn’t the effect of the invisibility cloak and Ye Qi felt the cold wind and snow . He rubbed his hands, arranged his hat and down jacket and also put on gloves and a mask . Only a pair of dark and clear eyes were shown as he looked at Yu Hanjiang and asked, “I remember this bridge on the map . After passing this bridge, we should be in the east district, right?”
Yu Hanjiang nodded and stared at the other side of the bridge . He responded in a low voice, “In theory, the number of bugs in the east district should be relatively small but we can’t be careless . The 30 minutes of invisibility time have passed and the bugs can see us . From now on, we must all be careful . ”
He turned to look at his teammates and quickly arranged them . “The displacement cards have a time limit . We will now start to act in formation . I will be at the front with Xiao Lou . Chief Shao and Old Mo are behind us and are responsible for the left and right wings to ensure we aren’t attacked from the sides .

Eight people stood in four rows and two columns to open the way while protecting the rear, sides and above . The entire team had to be protected without any dead corners . Otherwise, if a bug got through and attacked then it would be trouble!
Yu Hanjiang urged again, “Hold the important cards in your hands . We shouldn’t fight with the bugs head on . If we encounter a large group of bugs in the east of the city, we will immediately use the group control skills and run to find a base first . ”
Everyone nodded to show their understanding and quickly sorted out their card packs . They held all the available attack, control and displacement cards in their hands so they could be activated at any time .
Yu Hanjiang simply waved his hand . “Start!”
The light footwork skill would experience a cooldown after landing while Long Sen and Qu Wanyue’s Long Jump also had a time limit . Ye Qi’s teleportation card lost durability and this would be refreshed after a day . For the next journey, they couldn’t move with the help of the displacement cards . In order to avoid any teammates falling behind, Yu Hanjiang decided to walk together .
It was 10 o’clock in the evening and the eight people lined up to move quickly through the snowy night . The snow on the road was high enough to cover their ankles and it seemed to bury the entire city .
After this heavy snowfall, the reproduction speed of the bugs would further increase . After all, they liked the cold, heavy snowfall and drop in temperature . Such a cold city of ice and snow was particularly suitable for their survival . In addition, the lives of humans would become more difficult once water, electricity and heating was cut off .
They passed the one kilometre bridge quickly and soon came to the boundary of the east district .
There were still many high-rise buildings in the area near the bridge . The further they went east, the more they could feel that the buildings were getting lower . It was just that they were walking late at night on a snowy day in winter . They might have prepared well in advance but the thick cardigan and down jackets didn’t stop them from being frozen and numb .
Ye Qi couldn’t help exclaiming, “This is really a survival secret room . The bugs are already difficult to deal with and it is actually snowing!”
Most of the displacement cards had a time limit and it was obviously impossible to use it the entire time to move around the city . If a challenger team wanted to take advantage of tonight to find a new base, they had to brave the snow on foot .
Walking in snow for a kilometre or two wasn’t difficult but once it was eight or ten kilometres, everyone’s legs and feet would become frozen and numb .
Yu Hanjiang’s physical strength was good . Walking a few kilometres during the police academy was a daily task so this wasn’t tiring at all . However, the rest of the team hadn’t received professional training . He turned to the side and saw that Xiao Lou’s face was red with cold . The snowflakes on his eyelashes were about to freeze . Yu Hanjiang frowned and gently helped Xiao Lou pat the snow off his shoulder . “We can’t walk the entire way . We should see what type of transportation we can find while walking . ”
Xiao Lou suggested, “If someone in the city centre was infected and mutated on the way to the east district, perhaps they abandoned their car and left . ”
Yu Hanjiang nodded . “Yes, we will take the main road and perhaps we can find a car . ”
The area of the east district was huge . Without the help of the displacement card, they might not find a suitable base even walking all night . Instead, they would become eight snowmen . It could really save them a lot of trouble if they found a car .
He was just thinking this when Long Sen called out behind him, “Look over there!”
The group immediately looked back and followed his gaze .
There was a bus stop opposite the bridge . At this time, a bus common in urban areas drove from the direction of the city centre . On a snowy night, the streets were deserted . Now a bus suddenly appeared and there were a few people sitting on it . This scene made everyone feel a bit weird .
Yu Hanjiang spoke in a deep voice . “The people on the bus aren’t quite right . ”
Xiao Lou looked at the bus . Through the window, he could see that the lights were on and the people sitting down were looking at their phones . They looked like normal people . He asked doubtfully, “Are they infected?”
Yu Hanjiang replied, “It is very likely . The bus came from the direction of the city centre and we also came from there . We didn’t meet anyone along the way . Due to the heavy snow and the outbreak of an unknown infectious disease in the urban area, the citizens wouldn’t dare go on the streets . ”
Liu Qiao touched her chin and mused . “I always feel that this bus is very familiar?”
Yu Hanjiang gazed at the license plate number . “We were passing by the overpass when the infection broke out today . We saw a passenger inside a bus under the overpass being bitten . The bus was No . 301 . ”
Everyone looked carefully at the number of the bus . It was No . 301!
The team members really admired Yu Hanjiang’s ability to remember details .
The bus that was clearly in the city centre and had the passengers bitten suddenly appeared in the east of the city . This gave everyone a chill .
Ye Qi looked shocked . “Look, those in the bus are playing with their phones . Can the bugs play with mobile phones?”
Could the bugs play with mobile phones? If so, were these bugs advanced? Everyone glanced at each other .
Yu Hanjiang’s sharp eyes swept across the passengers in the bus . “There are 20 of them . Run or fight?”
Xiao Lou took a deep breath . As a result, a cold wind mixed with snowflakes blew at him and he sneezed several times in a row . Yu Hanjiang looked at him with worry . “Do you have a cold?”’
Xiao Lou rubbed his nose . “Yes, it is a bit of a cold . Then we will steal this bus with the bugs right?”
The teammates walking in the snow saw the snow falling above them and nodded in agreement . It was too much for these bugs to drive around in a bus .
Yu Hanjiang simply made a decision . “Okay, let’s do it!”
Stealing a bus from the bugs… it sounded crazy . However, they won eight against 50 in the supermarket . Now there were only 20 bugs on the bus . It should be possible?
Ye Qi was excited . “All my control skills are available . ”
Long Sen and Old Mo also reported on the situation of their cards . Yu Hanjiang quickly arranged things . “This group of bugs is likely to consist of high level bugs . They can actually play mobile games and pretend to be normal people . After boarding, Ye Qi will use a group control and Long Sen’s Badminton card will connect with the control . Liu Qiao, Teacher Qu, Chief Shao and Xiao Lou are responsible for getting the bugs off the bus . Old Mo will drive and I will be at the rear burning them . ”
Burning them in the bus meant burning the bus along with them . Thus, they had to get the bugs off the bus and then wipe them out .
Xiao Lou gazed at Yu Hanjiang with worry . “You will be at the back alone?”
Yu Hanjiang gently pressed a hand against Xiao Lou’s shoulder and whispered, “Relax, I won’t let myself have an accident . ”
Since he was so confident, Xiao Lou believed in his decision . The eight people quickly ran to the bus stop to stop the bus . They thought it was necessary to use control skills to stop it . As a result, the bus actually stopped and the middle-aged driver smiled politely at them . “Please insert your coins . It is 200 gold coins for the whole journey . ”
Buddy, your performance is simply worthy of being the movie emperor of the bugs!
