I'm Not Shouldering This Blame

STB Chapter 128: Broken Space

STB Chapter 127: Initiative
STB Chapter 129: Crack

The stores along the street have only two floors. When the giant spiders propped its body with its eight legs, its head is even higher than the roof. Their black abdomens pressed against the roof, and tiles kept rolling down while walls cracked.

Through the window, you can see the spider’s long black legs full of bristles. There’s a very sharp tip stuck on the pothole in the ground.

The ability holders forced to hide in the houses are terrified.

They saw many monsters in the Abandoned World, and they even have to kill four or five each day. More than the appearance of the giant spider, the giant spider’s “prestige” is what they have heard the most.

The ability holders undergoing the “survival training” in Red Dragon base have studied the 《Monster Manual》. How these monsters look, and where is their weakness are all evident — the ability holders who want to live gritted their teeth and fought.

The spider is different since they have never learned this before.

Some people panicked, and some trembled in fear precisely because they’ve heard of the infamous spiders.

Yang Chao once recruited someone named Zhang Tao in Black Abyss, who is also a young man who wants to climb up. It’s said that he offended a Red Dragon B-class spatial ability holder.

Guan Ling’s brother, Guan Cheng, was taken away by some ill-intentioned book transmigrators and imprisoned in a mountain cottage. They didn’t expect to be attacked by a giant spider, so everyone in the house died. There is only one crazy Zhang Tao left in the corner of the collapsed house. After Abandoned World ended, he ran away.

Zhang Tao has a guilty heart, fearing that Guan Ling would hate him.

He didn’t do anything that was horrible. At best, he didn’t stop them and watched a group of people stupidly ran out to feed the spider. At that time, Zhang Tao was delighted. Because of his madness, the person who locked him up actually though he’s crazy. He was maybe kicked a few times but nothing else. When the spider attacked, the group of people is afraid that the mad man would yell and get the spider’s attention, so they almost smothered him.

——feed the spider, go! Scum are also used for this. Feed the monster for his chance of survival.

Zhang Tao is very proud at heart. This smugness is gone when he knew the identity of Guan Ling.

After the “survival training” of Red Dragon, Zhang Tao knew the importance of spatial abilities, so he dare not stay in Red Dragon and quickly joined Black Abyss. Zhang Tao is guilty, afraid that one day Guan Ling will find him. He decided to take advantage of public opinion. If he had nothing to do, he’d talk to people about the terrible spider.

The spider silk has a paralytic toxin. When the spider web is stepped on by anyone, it’ll lead to the spider hunting. He also told how the giant spider bind its prey back to its nest……and how the giant spider ate.

At that time, Abandoned World has only lasted for two or three days, so the ability holders can still return to reality. They developed an information network, and they can search for answers with the click of a mouse. After reading, people would be pale.

Even Yang Chao is no exception. He thought about the fact that a spider almost ate him, he had a nightmare for a few days.

Now that the nightmare is alive and in front of him, and even more than one, Yang Chao insisting on not fainting is already amazing.

Li Fei put Jian Hua on his back.

Flames sprang out of the house like a dragon claw. In a moment, the street became a sea of fire. White spider silk got burnt and broke apart, curling in the air. Because mucus covered the spider silk, it won’t be able to turn to ashes for a while; they are like snakes struggling to dance in the fire, exuding the strange stench of meat burning.

The place where the giant spider formerly lived was always dark, so feeling this heat, it suddenly panicked.

The foot that touched the fire immediately retracted. They angrily destroyed a building, wanting to find the enemy that hurt them.

“C……come after me!” Yang Chao stared at the dark shadows on the roof with a fearful expression.

Immediately after that, he saw Geng Tian, who was running at the end, stop, extended leather gloved palms, and accurately stepped on the roadside fire hydrant to jump.

Geng Tian’s hands caught one of the giant spider’s foot.

A vigorous force dragged the giant spider, and almost lost its balance. It tried to stabilize its body, while wrathfully waving the other seven legs at Geng Tian.

Yang Chao reacted, and quickly pushed the giant spider.

Geng Tian violently exerted force, and whirled the giant spider, raising it in the air for two laps……

“Crack.”

The leg of the spiders bent by 120 degrees. Its body weight forced on the leg joints, how could it stand it, so it broke.

Blue blood spurted from the fracture.

Geng Tian has a “field” as a shield so he can avoid it all, but Yang Chao is unlucky and got drenched.

In the cold rainy night, Yang Chao instantly shivered, followed by common sense as he desperately wiped his face with his sleeves, fearful of poisoning.

“Get back!”

Li Fei’s cold voice came. Yang Chao didn’t think; he bolted and ran.

The unlucky short-legged spider, affected by the centrifugal force, flew and crashed into a bus stop sign. More spiders rushed to its side.

When the flame on the street became small, the hiding ability holders have escaped.

At this time, Li Fei suddenly felt Jian Hua falling. He quickly bowed his head and found a vine that came out of nowhere, wrapped around Jian Hua’s foot.

“Field” automatically created a barrier, not letting the vines touch Jian Hua, but this openly provocative attitude, made Li Fei immediately understood that Dr. Mad is nearby.

——sure enough, the giant spider is not the trap. Instead, he took the opportunity to lurk in the neighborhood.

Dr. Mad may have been waiting to appear when the monsters attacked the convoy, and it caught everyone by surprise.

“Cover your nose and mouth.”

Li Fei’s eyes condensed, and the whole vine turned to ashes. The smell of a suspected chemical spread out.

Geng Tian’s action is a step slow. His whole person shook and almost fell, but he grabbed his thigh, forcing himself awake.

The vine is not smeared with a toxin, but an anesthetic that is volatilized by heat.

If Li Fei burned the vines in anger and without preparation, he wouldn’t be able to move right now.

Fortunately, the dose of drugs that can be applied to a vine is limited, and the diffusion range is not extensive, so even if the flames burned violently, the smell disappeared in half a minute.

The giant spider that lost one leg did not continue to make trouble, as it hurriedly fled into the night like a bereaved dog.

Li Fei looked around.

Dr. Mad hid in the dark, Jian Hua seemed to fall into a drowsy state after raving, and the mushrooms……disappeared.

Li Fei looked up. Sure enough, he saw one of the spiders carrying eggs on its abdomen; the mushrooms must have that idea again. Abandoned World monsters are many, but he doesn’t know why the mushrooms are eyeing the spider eggs.

Thinking of the sudden appearance of these giant spiders, Li Fei squinted.

“Don’t touch the spider silk. Leave this street.” Yang Chao shouted with due diligence.

The fire turned slightly after the crowd retreated in a hurry, churning like magma, and melting the asphalt. Hazardous materials such as curtains and wood, even from far away, burned up.

“This!” Someone was shocked. The situation in front goes against their logic in every way.

The wantonly destroyed buildings, and even burning the whole town to the ground……

“Dr. Mad appeared.” Yang Chao’s eyes sharpened, seeing a few vines rushing towards here.

Everyone’s expression changed. When S-class ability holders fight, not to mention this town, afraid the surrounding few miles will be affected.

The house that was trampled by the giant spider, in the real world, would crush people, but the ruins burnt to ashes are the most amazing.

Thinking up to here, and because of fear of Dr. Mad, everyone hurriedly fled, can’t wait to be as far away from here as possible.

Yang Chao wanted to stay and help but knew that he had no use at all, so he became anxious.

Some people didn’t run, various thoughts in their minds. For example, the paparazzi is watching all these with wide-eyed amazement and fear, and there’s Huo Wei with righteous indignation.

The giant spider that was trapped by a sea of fire was increasingly alarmed.

“That won’t work. Dr. Mad is hiding in the dark, waiting for the spider to consume your power.” Geng Tian once again split a vine. He turned up his collar to cover his nose and mouth, feeling strange.

More and more vines emerged from the town. They fear flames, too afraid to come close, but blocked the way of escape for everyone.

“Dr. Mad wants to kill us all!”

Don’t know who shouted, but the ability holders attacked the vines together.

“Hahaha.” A man appeared from the fire.

He is not wearing carnival costume, but a dark gray trench coat, and wore a shoddy leather mask on his face with apparent scales on it, obviously stripped from a snake.

He opened his arms in intoxication, seemingly not afraid of others attacking.

——Dr. Mad has no reason to be frightened.

Everyone felt strong tinnitus, became dizzy, then fell.

Only Li Fei resisted this sudden attack, while Geng Tian is sweating, half-kneeling, and desperately wanted to stand up. It’s not just the ability holders who are victimized; even the giant spider is like hit by an invisible sharp blade, screaming and rolling on the ground.

“What a wonderful night!”

The man said in Chinese, his light-colored pupils full of excitement, “Walking in the darkness is the God of Death, how can you match a tyrant who burned Rome? Listen ah, isn’t the screams wonderful?”

“Infrasound wave?” Li Fei endured his dizziness and said the words with difficulty.

“Yes. Such a small thing can only last for a short time. It’s a sonic weapon developed by the Army.” The man touched his chin, giving a strange smile, “Failed goods. For ordinary people, it just made them feel depressed and anxious. I accidentally found out that ability holders are sensitive to it. Unfortunately, I only have two or three on hand.”

“You used it on Geng Tian. That time, he did not faint from a paralytic toxin, but sonic damage.”

“Exactly, only us are left right now! A carnival party of S-class ability holders. Of course, it’s necessary to eliminate the others that don’t qualify.” The man put a gloved finger on his lips, making it an exaggerated move.

Li Fei talked to drag the time, feeling that Jian Hua feels different.

Even though the giant spider is dangerous, he is enough to protect both of them. However, Jian Hua told him to go, or it might be an accidental raving brought by lethargy——dark sky, there will be a hole soon.

“Poor Poseidon, what a terrible uncle he has, what a bad brother, what a bad housekeeper ah! Oh. The group of people close to him harmed him……I knew a lot of things from them.”

Dr. Mad scornfully said, “Red Scorpion is simply unqualified to become the strongest A-class ability holder, but Old Cheng is. How powerful and how wonderful sound is. What a pity, he is old, impossible to run around everywhere.”

“You beat around the bush for a long time to confirm if we’ve taken Old Cheng?”

“……oh, there’s more. I also want to know if you can ‘satisfy’ the Devourer. You can’t do it yourself since it will consume your abilities. Did you use props? What is it?”

Li Fei’s face is black.

Dr. Mad is still enjoying the view of the fire-roasted spider. He seemed to be in love with the dazzling flame.

“Oh God, why are people with such dazzling talent not me! Let me see, to the person who killed me. It’s the perfect time to talk about feelings between death and becoming a corpse.”

Li Fei blocked the sinister sight of Dr. Mad, holding Jian Hua’s swaying palm.

With taut nerves clamoring, the Flame Beast became violent, warning Li Fei of what is going to happen.

“You also felt it, this suffocating danger.” Dr. Mad is very excited. His original goal was only Li Fei and Jian Hua, but now there’s this feeling of terror. Goosebumps prickled his skin, and his arms shook with excitement.

There’s a rift in the sky.

The head of a giant worm followed it. Its body greedily went down, chasing prey.

The S-class is its goal, and there are two here with Li Fei. The giant worm will come……

“Boom!”

Dr. Mad’s smile froze, and Li Fei’s attack also stopped.

Because of the piles of thick and gray mushrooms that fell from the hole.
