Chapter 277 – Meat Control
Zhou Xing Yuan had been stuffed into the passenger seat while Wei Xiao Bei took the driver seat.
During this entire process, Zhou Xing Yuan did not have the leeway to resist at all. He could only sit down on the passenger seat and be resigned to his fate.
On the other hand, Wei Xiao Bei’s spirit was trembling with excitement. He started the engine and stepped on the accelerator, causing the car to speed forward.
“This car isn’t bad.”
Wei Xiao Bei excitedly drove the car for a round in the grasslands before driving it towards Cui Hu University.
It was clear that the car was a lot better than the minivan that his third senior apprentice brother left him.
It had a higher horsepower and better controls. With just one touch of the steering wheel, Wei Xiao Bei immediately understood how great the car was.
“If little brother Wei likes it, then I’ll give it to you as a present.”
Zhou Xing Yuan saw that Wei Xiao Bei was interested in the car and also thought about how he was going to return back to the real world let alone the car.
Thus, he dispiritedly said these words. He played down the millions of yuan that the luxury car costed and gifted it to Wei Xiao Bei.
In truth, giving away a luxury car that costed millions of yuan was a bit painful for him.
Although Zhou Xing Yuan was one of the Da Hao Group’s executives, millions of yuan was not something he could just throw away easily.
However, he corrected his thoughts. Although he liked the car, it was already a useless object once it ran out of gas in this world. He’d rather take the chance to give it away while it still had value now to improve their relationship.
Wei Xiao Bei faintly smiled at how Zhou Xing Yuan was currying favor.
If he was still working back in the Da Hao Real Estate, he would have been jumping happily if someone gifted him a car that was worth millions.
But now, Wei Xiao Bei was calm and collected.
Zhou Xin Yuan was thinking about how it would become trash once it lost fuel in the Dust World unless one could find fuel inside this environment.
However, Wei Xiao Bei had second thoughts. He thought that some parts of the car might be useful. He did not decline Zhou Xing Yuan and just nodded his head showing that he was grateful.
Seeing that Wei Xiao Bei accepted the car, Zhou Xing Yuan’s heart calmed down as he let out a light sigh.
This feeling was something that he had not encountered for a long time now.
The last time he felt that way was when he relied on Wan Da Hao and when Wan Da Hao agreed to his request.
Naturally, if he could return to the real world, Zhou Xing Yuan had decided that he would never come back to the Dust World.
For a successful person like Zhou Xing Yuan, the Dust World was unfathomable.
Moreover, his occupation was not in the Dust World. Only those people who don’t have jobs would choose to enter the Dust World willingly.
No matter what was said, the Volvo was not Wei Xiao Bei’s private property.
Wei Xiao Bei drove more steadily than Zhou Xing Yuan. Although they were in the grassland and the car would slightly shake, the shaking had slowly made Zhou Xing Yuan sleepy.
His mind was too tense. Now that he had someone to rely on, Zhou Xing Yuan relaxed and almost fell asleep.
However, not long after, Wei Xiao Bei heavily stepped on the breaks, almost sending Zhou Xing Yuan, who was not wearing a seatbelt, through the windshield.
The dazed Zhou Xing Yuan had believed that he was preparing to go to work and asked with a bit of satisfaction. However, he immediately sobered up in the next moment.
He was not on the road to work but in this strange and damned place!
“Hide a bit farther, that thing is coming!”
Wei Xiao Bei opened the car doors and got down while pulling Zhou Xing Yuan to the driver seat.
That thing is coming?
Seeing Wei Xiao Bei’s back, Zhou Xing Yuan’s mind had not completely sobered up as he subconsciously stepped on the gas. Soon, his body trembled as he came to his senses.
Its that humanoid meat monster!
It is definitely that thing!
As he remembered it, Zhou Xing Yuan’s mind became completely awake. He operated the steering wheel, but after driving for a while, he stopped the car and quickly drove it around as he looked at Wei Xiao Bei’s back.
Having no choice, a question suddenly popped up in Zhou Xing Yuan’s head. If he ran away, he would have escaped a danger, but if Wei Xiao Bei died, then how much longer would he be able survive in this place?
Thus, Zhou Xing Yuan could only steel his nerves and wait in a place that he could still see Wei Xiao Bei.
At the very least he wanted to wait for Wei Xiao Bei to die before escaping.
This could not be said to be Zhou Xing Yuan’s betrayal.
After all, their relationship was at most acquaintances at the moment. The other important point was that Zhou Xing Yuan was helpless in the Dust World.
When Zhou Xing Yuan drove away, Wei Xiao Bei walked a few steps before stopping. He took out the Hard Metal Jian as his gaze unconsciously moved about, but soon he quickly stared at the figure that was running towards him.
He was able to clearly see a two meter tall monster that appeared as if a skeleton covered in layers of meat.
Other than having a single eye in its face, two hands, and two legs, there did not appear to be any other organs outside its body.
The entire body of the monster appeared like it was clay and looked extremely frightening.
Its recovery was quite strong as Wei Xiao Bei saw that the monster’s eye had completely recovered.
In terms of body structure, the monster was different from a normal person.
Its joints were protruding backwards like locusts. When it landed on the ground, its back legs folded adding force to its jump.
The moment it saw Wei Xiao Bei, its single eye stared at Wei Xiao Bei.
Wei Xiao Bei could feel the aura floating behind its back, as if something that was not there was borrowing its body to look at him.
Wei Xiao Bei would not give the other side the chance to look at him. He inserted his foot on the ground and kicked forward, sending the grass and soil at it like bullets.
With Wei Xiao Bei’s 40 points in muscle and sturdiness, the force behind this kick exceeded 3000 kilograms!
This 3000 kilogram force was packed into a fist-sized soil. The force was not as simple as only having 3000 kilograms.
It was like a needle that only needed a kilogram of force to easily puncture human skin. However, if a kilogram force was used on a chopstick, penetrating the skin would not be possible.
The problem here was pressure.
Under the same force, smaller objects had much more destructive power.
Compared to Mao An Ge, this monster was a bit smarter.
However, it was only a little bit smarter.
If Mao An Ge faced the soil that Wei Xiao Bei had kicked, then he would not dodge it. He only knew how to charge ahead.
If it was not like that Wei Xiao Bei would have a harder time against him.
This monster was a bit smarter. Seeing that the soil was flying at it, it stretched out his hand and wanted to block it with its strength.
The soil had instantly destroyed the monster’s hands. Afterwards, the slightly slowed soil directly struck at the monster’s chest. In an instant, the monster was sent flying. Countless pieces of meat splashed everywhere.
The force from when the soil touched the monster’s body was the same as an artillery shell.
The soil was not able to penetrate the monster’s chest. It was only able to shatter a bit of the meat on its body and expose the white bones.
Wei Xiao Bei frowned. He stamped the ground with his right leg and chased after the moneter. At the same time, he used [Status Appraisal] on it.
A normal 3-Star Creature!
After obtaining the monster’s information, he looked at it again.
The monster was called Mu Tian. Its name did not have a ‘fake chosen one’ title like Mao An Ge, but it was deeply controlled.
He guessed that it was probably another pitiful soul that had entered the Dust World and had been controlled by the Mutated Farmer’s Market.
Its status was blocked.
Its skills were visible. There were [Intermediate Power Burst] and [Quick Jump]. Compared to Mao An Ge who had three skills, this one only had two.
Its special skills on the other hand were different from Mao An Ge.
It had [Meat Control], [Control Resistance], [Physical Damage Resistance], and [Bone Strengthening].
It had four special abilities just like Mao An Ge.
However, meat control had surprised Wei Xiao Bei.
Meat Control: The user can control meat that had separated from their body and let them invade the enemy’s body.
It was a simple description, but the information contained within it was not normal.
[Bone Strengthening] had made the monster sturdier, preventing the soil from penetrating!
Its sturdiness should not be lower than Wei Xiao Bei’s and might even be higher.
Naturally, the monster was only using its bones to support itself. The meat’s toughness was almost non-existent while the bones were incredibly hard. If it was not like that, then the soil would have easily penetrated.
Wei Xiao Bei was very fast. In just a few seconds, he had arrived in front of the monster. He did not stop as he smashed the jian on its head.
The sound of metal hitting each other echoes. The monster’s head sunk down into the ground.
However, even if it was so, the monster did not show that it was damaged. Its neck did not even show any signs of being broken.
What strong bones!
However, Wei Xiao Bei was also stronger than before.
When Wei Xiao Bei was about to strike again and thoroughly send this monster off, he felt that something was wrong with his back, legs, and other body parts. He felt a slight chill enter them.
