Alomitsu - Chapter 21
Chapter 21: Studio City (7)
“Go to hell!” Supporting the ground with my hands and my legs thrusting on the ground with all my strength, I rushed to the blue figure like an ugly frog jumping up. The arrow in my hand pierced towards the head of the blue figure.
Dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, the skeleton of my whole body was about to fall apart. All the pain that a person can feel in his entire life is experienced at this moment.
I was sent flying? My body was spinning rapidly in the air, and the surrounding scenery was like an oil painting randomly sprinkled with dye. I couldn’t see the specific form of the scenery. I was caught in a trance. He threw me behind the ruins.
There was a slope behind the ruins. My body rolled down with gravity, and my head felt as if being hit with a stone. I didn’t know exactly what happened. All the memories were in me facing the blue figure. It started to blur.
I lost my short-term consciousness. Maybe I was dead, anyway, thinking of the situation at that time, in simple words, it was the darkness of silence without any perception.
I thought many times about my own experiences and every time of distress I said that if I died or committed suicide in a dangerous situation, my pain would not be so deep.
When I woke up, I was drenched. I was lying in the stream in the small valley behind the ruins. The cursed place was sparsely emitting white gleam. I didn’t know where the gleam came from. Don’t be blue, I really don’t want to see the blue figure right now.
My whole body seemed to fall apart. All I could move was my upper body, and it was extremely difficult to move my legs.
I grabbed the rocks in the stream with both hands and wanted to drag myself ashore. I did this simple movement for a long time.
“This, damn thing, teasing me like a wild dog.” I felt extremely angry when I recalled being hunted down by the white-robed giant and the red-robed old man, and I was also pleased with my survival.
I climbed to the shore and leaned against the rock under the ruined slope. I tried my best to restore my strength. Obviously, my injury would not recover for a while. Am I going to starve to death in this dark ruin? Being killed by those blue figuresl?
I saw the “fluorescent grass” with white light around me. It had a cylindrical head and slender green leaves on its lower body. A delicate black flower bloomed on top of its head. The center of the stamen had a polygonal fruit. Such a plant had never been discovered by humans. If it was taken out, it might be provided to botanists for research.
After seeing the fruit, I felt hungry. I wanted to reach out and eat the fruit. The moment I was about to touch the fruit, a bee hovering and dancing appeared.
It landed on the fruit quietly, and its whole body gradually spread into black and purple. It noticed the abnormality, flew up, and whirled in the air. However, it fell on the soil without moving.
This also made me sober from instinctive hunger. Yes, I almost made a big mistake. I was in an extraordinary situation. The fruits of the plants here were by no means reassuring. I was so careless. I was almost controlled by instinct.
The unnatural creatures and sights I saw were crazy talk in the ears of others. If my previous self heard this, I would not believe all this, but now, I was forced to believe the words of a madman.
I was like a patient who had lost all consciousness on the damp mud on the shore. I remembered that a medical friend who was studying cranial nerves told me that it was a vegetative state(cerebral palsy), and I now thought that I was almost the poor vegetable.
A little spider climbed on my chest, and it pulled the spider thread on my body. Does this little guy want to tie me up and eat me? I gently stretched out my hand and placed the little spider on the soil. As a creature that was thousands of times taller and thoughtful, I would not hunt other creatures for no reason.
Unable to move, I stretched my hand into my belt, and the old cowhide roll was still there. This made me feel relieved. I pushed away the cowhide roll with ancient Roman words very carefully. This action was like treating a newborn baby.
Why this font glows, now I completely understand. The words on this cowhide scroll were all made up of fluorescent powder. When opened, it would emit light to make people think that this was a cursed scroll. It would make people afraid that this scroll would summon demons, so as to use human fear to make others not dare to open and read the secrets in it.
The content in the scroll was as follows:
<I came to the valley and looked up at the cursed starlight, which sparsely emits a faint light. The weak fluorescent grass plowed out the ancient slabs for the brilliance cast among the deadly large arrow poison trees.
<When I walked to the depths of this sleeping valley, where the witch’s fluorescent grass could not illuminate, the unknown unknown to the world moved slowly in the dark. At this time, my whole body was covered with fluff.
<Here, the evil vines will form arms, and these sprawling plants will climb from the rubble of the ancient palace ruins, just like the evil spirits that grab the baby’s tender legs at night.
<They gently entangled the ruined stone pillars and weird crowns. I lifted the marble slab and saw the forgotten heads.
<The mossy boulders that cover the damp and majestic palaces are huge and exude an ancient atmosphere. Before that night, the walls they formed were so magnificent and majestic. Their builders spent all their lives erecting these stone walls. I hope they will stand forever.
<And now, these majestic and noble walls that fulfill their obligations have become (wrong) homes under the shade of their painful wailing.
<When I find that the sky is covered with dark clouds, the ancient legend under the sand will rise from the ground, and this palace will (wrong) (wrong) be desperate (wrong) (wrong).>
(Note: Mistakes mean words that cannot be read by the protagonist. It also meant that the words were missing and cannot be read completely.)
Nothing at all! It was just a fear warning with a little rhyme and didn’t even say the way out, and the feeling of loss filled my heart like dead branches.
I lowered my head feebly, like a kid who did something wrong. Maybe I shouldn’t resent the person who wrote this scroll, because my self-assertion expectations were not fulfilled and there was a big psychological gap.
Is that over? Are you going to admit your fate now? Are you abandoning Rui’s kindness?
I tried my best. I put all my strength together, and I didn’t want to encounter terrible things anymore!
My thoughts were fighting, and in the end, I chose to move on. The reason why I was not suppressed by fear was that the fear of death that stayed still worried me even more.
The patter of rain fell from the sky, and the top of the rock I was leaning on was a slope. The rain rolled down the slope, like broken water drops on top of my head.
I kept wiping my face with my hands, because the rain always blocked my sight and even flowed into my eyes.
What sound is this? And this sounds very close to me.
I wiped my face a few times and looked in the direction of the sound. It was the sound from the “fluorescent grass” on my right. My eyes widened in astonishment, watching the evolution of the most unlikely species in the world.
Darwin’s evolution was overthrown before my eyes, leaving no traces at all.
This “fluorescent grass” was not the reason I was shocked, but the bee that died in the corner. Its carapace was cracked, and the thin hairs were exposed from the carapace. Its body was constantly shattering like a collapsed ground. The head began to swell, much like a bulging balloon.
Its head burst open, and I moved my lower body to one side. I wanted to run away now, but I wanted to finish watching this unnatural evolution.
The head of a mouse emerges from the nail-like body of a bee. The scene was extremely dissonant. It had the head of a mouse but the body is the body of a bee. The size of the body will not make people think that the two different animals could fuse together, not to mention different species.
The body of the bee began to melt and twist, gradually showing the body of a mouse, which was getting bigger and bigger.
“Go to hell!”
I didn’t dare to wait. I rushed to grab the body of the growing mouse and hit it on the rock.
Boom! Bang! Bang!
The rocks were smashed and there was sticky red blood everywhere. Bee? mouse? I didn’t know what to call the mess of meat I threw on the ground.
The rotten meat was still twisting, but it couldn’t find the muscle tissue it could fuse, because its muscle tissue was completely smashed by me. This was not evolution at all but a curse.
“Haha~ha~ha~” I was panting. The sight really scared me. My hands were trembling because of it. I looked at the plasma on my hands. The plasma was still squirming slightly, like a maggot crawling.
I felt nauseated. It made me want to vomit.
I was washing my hands vigorously with the rainwater flowing down the slope, always feeling that I could not wash them clean. Over and over again, I was even more afraid that the disgusting blood would get into my skin.
After I washed my hands, I supported myself with my hands. Now, my leg hurt so much that I could only rely on the strength of my arms to get out of here.
I looked around. The stream was flowing down, and there was an empty echo from below. I judged from the echo that if I went down, it was probably a cliff or a lake, which meant that I could only climb up along the stream.
The warm stream washed my wrists, and the abnormal temperature of the stream made me suspect that there was a natural hot spring above it.
Slap~ Slap~ Slap~
I slapped my hands in the stream, dragging my body forward. The more “fluorescent grass” was on it, the more luminous the scenery was.
At this time, a shining loach fish was rushed in front of me by the stream. I grabbed the blood-colored loach. Its slender body was soft and thick. This is a gift from the stream?
(Note: Loach refers to the phylum Chordata, one of the families of the order Cypriniformes of the ray finfish. Small freshwater bottom-dwelling fish, omnivorous. Loach is one of the most outstanding representatives of the species.)
It was dead long ago, but its body did not show any signs of decay. I watched this like a mackerel swallowing its saliva. Sorry, even if you are a gift from the stream, I will not eat you.
I still clearly remember the horror brought to me by “Fluorescent Grass” just now. I was going to throw away the loach when I saw a huge “Fluorescent Grass” growing on the rock not far away. Its size was no longer sufficient. It’s called grass, but it had the height of an adult sycamore tree.
Its cylindrical head did not have a polygonal fruit, but was covered with many fluffy particles, just like dandelion seeds. When exposed to rain, these seeds absorbed water and grew like a sponge. They flew by themselves. Blowing away in the wind. It’s more like flying towards a target with purpose.
The loach in my hand trembled twisted like it was alive. Its bloodshot eyes turned black in a blink, and its slippery skin became rough. The body began to rupture like the bee.
“Oh, damn it!” I threw the loach to the ground. Its slender body constantly tossed and twisted, obviously it was dead long ago.
In the stream, in the jungle, in the crevices of the rocks, this crisp crackling sound made my heart beat gradually faster. Fear made my eyes widen and my ears pricked up.
All around were the dandelion-like seeds, and the seeds were forced into the bodies of various animals, insects (bees), fishes, and gastropods (snails), and their bodies made a crisp cracking sound.
They were like needles in the hands of doctors, piercing into the bodies of these animals, forcing them to parasitize and grow in their bodies, and now, a large mass was slowly drifting towards me!
The screams of the mouse cubs sounded in various places, and a layer of lumps appeared on my skin after hearing the mouse’s screams.
I quickly slapped my arms against the stream, and I desperately climbed up the stream. Clusters of floating seeds followed behind me. They wanted to get into my body!
“Hurry up, hurry up, I must leave this place!” I kept urging myself.
