Chapter 89: The Temptation of Blood
The Progenitor died!
Everyone clearly felt that the Progenitor very obviously had wanted to say something at the end, and it had something to do with Hong Qi Hua, but she hadn’t managed to say anything in the end. At this time, Bai Yi couldn’t describe the disappointment he felt inside his heart. He initially only buried the pain of Hong Qi Hua’s death deep in his heart, but now suddenly it seemed like he could get to know of a different result. However, that suddenly disappeared in the end.
And the reward that the Progenitor promised at the end, was she referring to that drop of blood? But in the end only Momo got splashed with that drop of blood, and they didn’t even know the use of it.
Even Bai Yi now felt like scolding people, however suddenly a smell wafted over from the Progenitor’s body, filling everyone’s nose with it. Once they smelled this, Bai Yi blanked for a moment and a slight blurriness appeared in his mind. He slowly walked towards the Progenitor…I want to eat. This appetite did not come from hunger, but from seemingly smelling the greatest delicacy in the world and wanting to devour all of it.
Just when Bai Yi wanted to bite onto the finger of the Progenitor, Bai Yi suddenly quivered in his mind and he abruptly rushed out. Bai Yi rammed into the few of them continuously, sending all of them flying. After falling onto the floor, the expression of Woolf and the others gradually regained a bit of clarity after being enchanted by that smell.
“Bai Yi, what happened?”
“There’s something wrong with this smell!” Bai Yi said solemnly. “The enticement of this smell is too strong, even more intense than that drop of blood just now. It was filled with temptation and danger just like that of a poppy flower, but I don’t know what happened either.” While Bai Yi was talking, Pupu headed toward the Progenitor again, seemingly getting bewitched again.
This time, Sharpei bit Pupu and stopped it when Pupu walked towards the Progenitor again. Sharpei then swung Pupu backwards. Pupu’s tough skin wasn’t damaged, and after it fell onto the floor it looked at Sharpei in fury, seemingly very unhappy with this guy that interrupted it. Ferociously, Pupu charged at Sharpei and rammed towards it. One must know, Pupu always treated Sharpei as its boss all along.
Initially, Sharpei was just dealing with him lightly, but within a few rounds Sharpei started to become crazy as well. Its four powerful limbs stepped on the floor and ferociously bit at Pupu. Seeing Sharpei’s actions, all of them could tell that Sharpei really intended to kill Pupu.
Bai Yi shook his head and looked at everyone.
Not just Sharpei, but even he couldn’t control himself anymore. Out of nowhere, an intense desire to have the Progenitor rose in him, crazily wanting to possess it all for himself, and killing all other living things around him after that. At this time, not only Bai Yi realised that something was wrong, but the others also discovered this change in their hearts. They looked at each other with bloodshot eyes, and Woolf and Heloise even drew their own swords.
Mimicry Eyes – Intimidation!
The colored patterns instantly rose in Bai Yi’s eyes again, and everyone seemed to feel an intense pressure pressing down on their hearts. Their hearts tensed abruptly and suddenly regained their consciousness again.
“Let’s go, leave this place!” Bai Yi did not know what was going on, but apparently something very bad was going to happen if they kept on staying here. Sharpei and Pupu broke away, seemingly quite surprised at what they were doing, and Momo and Warner knocked one pet each on their heads, telling the both of them to follow closely. At this time, that intense smell from the Progenitor was still rapidly spreading around the entire area.
Bai Yi was last, but he suddenly stopped and ran back towards the Progenitor’s body.
Following the lift passage, the intense smell gradually pervaded the minds of all the experimental monsters, inducing an unimaginable desire in them – Want to…eat the thing that is giving off this smell, I want to have this thing solely for myself!
The moment they came to the door, they immediately encountered the other experimental monsters. However, the bunch of them who came here following the intense smell completely ignored Bai Yi’s group, and rushed frenziedly towards the Progenitor at the center. They looked back and immediately discovered that when the experimental monsters took a bite of their Progenitor’s flesh, they instantly became even crazier. They looked at the other experimental monsters red-eyed, and within two seconds started fighting with each other.
The smell of blood mixed within the smell of the Progenitor, seemingly exciting them even more, making this new smell even sweeter and more enticing.
“Just what is going on?” Mavis frowned and asked.
“I don’t know, but now is a good chance. Let’s hurry up and leave.” Bai Yi said to everyone, and the group of them sprinted like mad towards the lift. Along the way, they ran against an endless wave of experimental monsters. However, these monsters did not attack them like before, but rushed without regard for the lives towards the giant space holding the Progenitor, seemingly afraid that they were running too slowly.
This time, the place that Bai Yi’s group was running towards wasn’t the fourth hive. After all, the lift was ruined, and it’d be very difficult if they wanted to climb all the way back up.
While they were heading to the fifth hive, they discovered on the other side of the passageway an endless number of experimental monsters bursting out from the damaged lift passage like a spurting geyser. These experimental monsters rushed maniacally towards the room where the Progenitor was, and started vying over the flesh of the Progenitor. There was nothing every single monster wanted more than to take a bite of the Progenitor’s flesh. However, there was a limited area surrounding the Progenitor, so the monsters on the outside could only bite and tear into the other monsters blocking them, wanting a spot in the inner area.
Very quickly, the Progenitor’s corpse was buried under the sea of monsters. Although many areas on the Progenitor were already bitten off, more and more monsters were attracted over as the flesh was consumed rapidly.
At this time, the room where the Progenitor was in almost became a crazy meat grinder, turning all the living experimental monsters into blood and flesh. The monsters following behind clearly knew this, but they still continued to rush towards that place.
When Bai Yi’s group finally got on the other elevator, they were still trembling inside their hearts.
“I really don’t understand this more and more. Pain not only didn’t let them maintain their consciousness, but it even increased the desire to kill and compete for the flesh!” Mavis pulled out the scalpel in her arm, and swiftly pressed on an acupoint, stopping the bleeding. Mavis wanted to use pain to stimulate herself and wake herself up just now, but it actually almost drove her into that madness.
“En, nobody knew what was going on!” Bai Yi nodded as well and rubbed the center of his eyebrows.
In the end, other than meeting with the Progenitor, they seemed to have gained nothing out of this.
Yeye said to meet with the Progenitor, so she apparently knew that the Progenitor would very probably gift something to Bai Yi’s group, such as that crystal-like drop of blood. Bai Yi had automatically omitted the drop of blood that fell on Momo’s eyes. Bai Yi understood that that drop of blood should be very important, but in the end the Progenitor apparently could not hold on anymore. At that time, she seemed to have wanted to tell them something regarding Hong Qi Hua, but she didn’t even manage that in the end.
In the end, they can’t continue to ruminate over their gains and losses, getting out still took priority.
Bai Yi’s group took the lift and very quickly reached the upper section. When the lift opened, there weren’t many monsters around, as apparently most of them had already rushed towards the Progenitor’s location. Although they did not know how long this situation would last, it was still a good thing to them.
Leave this place!
Bai Yi’s group followed the pre-planned route and rushed towards another location that had a drug that had not been developed completely – Prototy original form drug. The meaning behind the name was that even if the being fused with genes from other lifeforms, this drug would allow them to retain their original forms. Although they did not know if this drug would still be effective towards them, there was definitely nothing to lose by acquiring the drug first.
Along the way, Bai Yi’s group met many strange and weird experimental monsters, but they did not attack Bai Yi’s group at all and rushed madly towards the Progenitor’s location. It appeared like they didn’t want to waste even a second, fearing that they would be too late.
“I really want to know, what benefits would you get from eating the flesh of the Progenitor?” Heloise suddenly said.
“I don’t know what benefits would we get, but I know that we would probably all die inside there after eating it. Of course, after getting out we could try and see for ourselves.” Bai Yi said.
Everyone looked at each other, then at Bai Yi interestingly. Just now at the last moment Bai Yi ran back and sliced off a chunk of flesh from the Progenitor’s finger, and very seriously placed it into an air-sealed compartment inside the protective case where Yeye’s main computer was also placed. Bai Yi, this guy always had so many ideas. However, if this weren’t the case, then based on how those experimental monsters went crazy over the smell they wouldn’t be able to get out either.
The group of them came to the place where Doctor Wang researched the Prototy drug, and immediately started to search for it. This place was apparently messier. They didn’t know if the monsters managed to barge in here or some other people searched this place before. However, Bai Yi leaned more towards the latter. After all, due to the disappearance of Sunlight, the upper section had always been left open, so Yu Han would’ve definitely searched this place before.
The few of them searched carefully, and finally found on the floor a broken test tube that contained a light blue liquid which was quite close to the description of the drug that Yeye gave.
“Is this it?” Mavis asked.
“Probably!” Bai Yi said, and took out a few empty syringes that they had prepared long ago, carefully sucking up the liquid left inside. There wasn’t much liquid left in the broken test tube in the first place, but their syringes that they had were very small as well, so they actually managed to fill 9 syringes…Bai Yi, Momo, Woolf, Mavis and Heloise. As for Sharpei and Pupu, Bai Yi felt that it was unnecessary for them. With their appearances now, it wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. After all, there wouldn’t be much use even if they returned to their original forms.
“Let’s go.” Get out of this place!
Bai Yi said this to them after carefully placing the few syringes in a secret compartment at the side of the protective case.
