Chapter 126: A lunatic wouldn’t admit they’re crazy
Translator: Legge Editor: Legge
When the black medicine was applied to Tang Zhou’s wounds, he felt like was brought back to Earth from the underworld.
The black medicine’s ability to stop pain was incredibly amazing and it applied a cooling sensation to a wound.
Tang Zhou looked up at Ren Xiaosu and said in shock, “Is this really the type of medicine Boss usually takes?!”
Luo Lan grew angry and snapped, “Will you die if you don’t speak? Shut up!”
“Which of the wounded knows how to drive?” Ren Xiaosu interrupted them. “If y’all don’t wanna die, get in the truck quickly and let’s get out of this place.”
Everyone stayed quiet. A wounded soldier who could still move struggled to get up and climbed into the driver seat of the transport truck. Ren Xiaosu frowned and said to Luo Lan, “Can you drive instead? He might die while driving with the shape he’s in.”
Luo Lan said helplessly, “I don’t know how to drive….”
“You don’t know how to drive?” Ren Xiaosu said with some disbelief, “You’re such a big shot in the stronghold, but you don’t even know how to drive?”
“There’s no relation between being a big shot and knowing how to drive, right?” Luo Lan said in a speechless manner, “Oh, wait, it is related. It’s because I don’t need to drive myself when I go out, so I didn’t need to learn how to drive.”
Ren Xiaosu had no time to argue with him right now. “Hurry up and get into the truck.”
In the Qing Consortium’s records, Ren Xiaosu was just a relatively stronger refugee. Xu Xianchu was the one who was supposedly the most dangerous of all.
When the truck passed the spot where Ren Xiaosu and Chen Wudi had killed the Experimentals, Luo Lan even counted how many there were. A total of three Experimentals had been killed, including the one that pounced on the off-road vehicle.
Logically, Ren Xiaosu would not have the ability to do this. Luo Lan suddenly recalled that the young man next to Ren Xiaosu looked a little familiar. But he could not remember who it was since he was still in a state of shock.
Soon after, the truck drove over to Xiaoyu and company. Ren Xiaosu’s head poked out from the back of the military transport truck. He said, “Hop in!”
Jiang Wu stood there and watched Yan Liuyuan and company climb in the truck. She said hesitantly, “Can you let us in as well? Or just let the students get in. There’s no need to worry about me.”
As Jiang Wu believed they were not related in any manner to Ren Xiaosu and his group, it would only take a word from him to determine whether they would be allowed into the truck. She knew she had to make this request.
Ren Xiaosu looked at Jiang Wu for a bit, then said, “That’s what I intended all along.”
“Thank you! Thank you very much!” Jiang Wu got excited and urged the students, “Everyone, hurry up and get into the truck. Remember to thank him for saving our lives!”
The group of students climbed into the back of the truck and saw it was more than large enough for everyone to sit in. Only Luo Lan, who was sitting in the corner, kept grumbling softly, “Isn’t this supposed to be my truck?”
Why did it seem like Ren Xiaosu was making most of the decisions here?
But Luo Lan had to bow out. He realized at this moment that Ren Xiaosu had an absolute advantage over the people in the group.
When Ren Xiaosu was giving treatment to Tang Zhou’s group, he deliberately took away all their weapons.
Every student who climbed in would say a few words of thanks to Ren Xiaosu. He found he gained more than 20 gratitude tokens in just a short time. The students were all sincerely grateful to him.
Sometimes, Ren Xiaosu thought it might the teacher, Jiang Wu, who had influenced them to be this way. As just a normal person caught in the disaster, this female teacher had displayed the most glorious aspect of human nature.
Ren Xiaosu, who lived in the chaotic town, felt somewhat envious.
By now, Ren Xiaosu had earned 56 gratitude tokens from everyone, including the gratitude tokens Tang Zhou, Luo Lan, and their soldiers gave. The gratitude tokens he reaped for this side quest came in much quicker than the previous one.
When everyone got into the truck, it started moving again. Everyone was sitting quietly. Everyone would feel different emotions after such a close brush with death. Only after near-death encounters would people yearn to live.
Xiaoyu and Yan Liuyuan took out some food from their bags and handed it to Ren Xiaosu and Chen Wudi. They knew Ren Xiaosu and Chen Wudi needed food to replenish their strength after the battle.
The others swallowed hard when they saw the food, but no one dared to ask for a share. Even Luo Lan did not say anything.
But all of a sudden, Luo Lan’s eyes flashed as he gave Chen Wudi a look. He finally remembered who he was!
“Aren’t you that lunatic from Third Psychiatric Hospital?” Luo Lan sat up straight. “Your name is… yes, your name is Chen Wudi!”
As the actual controller of the stronghold, how could Luo Lan not know about the existence of No. 3 Psychiatric Hospital? Moreover, all of the information on the supernatural beings who had been detained would be reported back to him. The content of the information was meticulously detailed and would even include their daily life, words spoken, and behavior displayed!
Even for the Qing Consortium, supernatural beings were an extremely important resource. Whether they had been made use of or studied upon, the Qing Consortium could not ignore the existence of such people.
Luo Lan figured out something at this moment: Who exactly had killed the Experimentals?
However, he was only seeing what Ren Xiaosu wanted him to see.
Chen Wudi looked at Luo Lan. He had not really taken a careful look at Luo Lan earlier on. In addition, Luo Lan’s face was stained with yellow blood at that time. Only after he had wiped his face clean did Chen Wudi finally recognize Luo Lan. “It’s you, Benbo’erba 1!”
“Ben? Ben, my ass!” Luo Lan grew heated. He had read Journey to the West before, alright? “You lunatic, don’t spout nonsense. Who the fucking hell is Benbo’erba?”
Ren Xiaosu gave Luo Lan a glance. He remembered that whenever Chen Wudi was about to hit someone, he would always assign a demon name to them.
Chen Wudi looked at Luo Lan unhappily. “Please address me as the Great Sage in the future. On top of that, I’m not a lunatic.”
Luo Lan snapped, “No lunatic would admit they’re crazy. You say you’re the Great Sage who protects his master so you people can go to the Western Paradise to obtain the Buddhist scriptures? In that case, you must first have a master, right? So where is your master?”
It fell silent in the vehicle.
Then, Ren Xiaosu looked at Luo Lan and said, “I’m his master.”
Wang Fugui said, “I’m Pigsy.”
Wang Dalong’s gaze kept wandering back and forth between Wang Fugui and Ren Xiaosu. He hesitated for a few seconds before saying, “I’m Friar Sand…”
Luo Lan was confused.
Just how many mentally ill people were there in the truck? Luo Lan was dumbfounded. “Are you serious?”
Suddenly, the soldier in the driver seat shouted, “We have a situation up ahead!”
After that, Ren Xiaosu heard a sharp braking sound. It was as though the driver had come across an unbelievable sight.
“What’s going on?” Ren Xiaosu asked in a serious tone.
“There are a few cars ahead,” the driver answered. “No, there are a few damaged cars ahead of us. It looks like they came from the direction of Stronghold 109.”
