Chapter 70: Become Frenzied
Zhang Mu rubbed his ears with a bitterly smile. He withdrew the Bloodvine Demon Lotus and had to accept his bad luck without complaint. Well, he didn’t know when Little Black would be able to break the cocoon, so he had to wait.
Zhang Mu walked out of the yard and was scared by the scene in the front of him. A crowd of people were standing outside of the door and surrounded the yard. Everyone was holding a weapon in their hands, and some people were standing on their toes, peeping at the yard.
However, Wang Liang was standing in front of them motionless, so they didn’t dare to break into the yard.
“What happened?” Zhang Mu asked in confusion.
Seeing Zhang Mu, Wang Liang took out a sigh of relief. He looked at Zhang Mu and said with a smile, “All the people in the habitation had heard a growl from your yard. Other people thought that it must be a mutated animal who had sneaked into the habitation, but I remembered your words, so I stopped them.”
“Oh, I see. It was from my little pet. Don’t mind it,” Zhang Mu explained and waved his hands.
“Ok, I will tell everyone it. Don’t blame them. Last time, a lot of mutated animals had broken into our habitation and caused a lot of damage. They were really scared!” Wang Liang said. Zhang Mu had become more powerful in his heart. He was the leader of the habitation, naturally, he knew every evolver’s ability here.
He thought that Zhang Mu was just a tamer-type evolver in the past. According to the words from the tamer-type evolvers in this habitation, every person could only tame a mutated animal, and it was hard to tame strong mutated animals.
Wang Liang had known that Zhang Mu had a mutated wolfdog, but the sound he heard just now couldn’t be from a wolfdog! Therefore, there would be only one reason that could explain it: Zhang Mu had another mutated animal!
In Wang Liang’s heart, Zhang Mu had become more and more mysterious. Zhang Mu had wealth, trading skill and boldness, and now, his power was even out of his imagination. If Zhang Mu was his enemy, he would have a headache.
Fortunately, Zhang Mu wasn’t his enemy but his cooperation partner. He even agreed to help Wang Liang achieve his ambition.
Thinking of this, Wang Liang felt relieved. Since Zhang Mu wasn’t his enemy, he’d better to cooperate with Zhang Mu, so that he could obtain better benefits in the future.
Only benefit was the biggest guarantee to maintain a friendship.
Wang Liang turned back and looked at his people. He didn’t speak.
Looking at Wang Liang’s eyes, they immediately stopped talking and waited Wang Liang to speak.
“Don’t worry. Brother Mu had told me that the growl was from his mutated animal. He also feels sorry for disturbing us. Everyone, go back to work now!” Wang Liang’s voice was dignified. Obviously, his people believed in him.
“Oh, I see. The growl was from this man’s mutated animal! Does it mean that he is very strong?”
“Yes, I had never heard any sound that could be as mighty as the growl. Now we know the reason. All well and good.”
“It’s good for our habitation to have such a strong evolver. Nothing serious. My mind is at rest.”
“Go, go, go! Go back to work, guys. Don’t just hang about!”
People felt relieved after hearing Wang Liang’s words. They nodded and talked with each other, leaving this place in bands of two or three. The growl would only become a topic of conversation at their leisure time.
Seeing that people had all left, Wang Liang looked at Zhang Mu and asked, “Brother Mu, what’s your plan? Do you want to kill the walking dead crowds with us? You can have one-third of the spoils. What do you think about it?”
One-third of the spoils wasn’t less. Zhang Mu hadn’t exposed his Bloodvine Demon Lotus to them and Wang Liang had agreed to give him one-third of the spoils. It was really a sincere move.
However, Zhang Mu smiled and shook his head, “Thanks, but I won’t go to hunt walking dead with you, because I don’t need crystals right now.”
Yes, Zhang Mu didn’t really care about crystals now. If Wang Liang knew that Zhang Mu could wipe out a walking dead crowd far faster than all the evolvers in the habitation, he would be flabbergasted.
Wang Liang smiled bitterly. He wanted to show his goodwill with the huge profit, but he didn’t expect that Zhang Mu didn’t care about his “huge profit”. He was more curious about what Zhang Mu was going to do.
Zhang Mu knew what Wang Liang was thinking, but he had nothing to hide. He looked to the sky and said slowly, “I will go to hunt mutated animals. I need all their animal cores!”
Wang Liang was shocked by Zhang Mu’s crazy idea. Zhang Mu was actually planning to catch all mutated animals in one draft? It was insane! For a moment, Wang Liang was worried about would Zhang Mu asked him to help him. No, I won’t play this crazy game with him! Wang Liang thought in his heart.
Zhang Mu clearly knew what Wang Liang was thinking. He smiled and said, “Don’t worry, I don’t need your people to take risk with me. I will go to hunt mutated animals alone. However, I need your people to look for mutated animals’ locations for me. I will give you foods and weapons in return. No upper limit.”
Wang Liang had prepared to refuse Zhang Mu, however, the three words, “No upper limit” had aroused his greed. His eyes gradually turned green with desire.
