Zombie Sister Strategy Chapter 1258
"Yes, my men met three of them, all of whom acted alone, unlike the herds on Earths surface. All three of them were at or above level-seven," Lan Lu nodded and said with a serious look.
His words made the other two glance at each other and wear a serious look as well.
All three creatures that Lan Lus men met were at level-seven or even above. His men didnt reach the bottom of the underground world, meaning that stronger creatures might exist deeper underground. Monsters at level eight or even nine could exist down there. The team which would be sent underground this time could very likely be unable to come back. At the very least, it would be a very dangerous mission.
"So this time, I think the people that were going to send down there have to be at level-six at least. You two should think carefully about whom to send. Make sure theyre at level-six or higher. It would be even better if they have some special life-saving skills," Lan Lu thought for a moment and then gave a suggestion.
Recalling what had happened to Yuan Tianxing, Lin Qiao said, "Apart from dangerous creatures, there might also be some poisonous gas or liquid, or other natural traps down there."
Wu Chengyue spread his hands and said, "At least one level-eight person should be leading the team. But currently, there are only four level-eight ones. How do you think we can make Si Kongchen lead the team himself?"
Three of the four level-eight ones were now sitting in Lin Qiaos room. Making Si Kongchen lead the team himself was not likely to happen. He was not stupid enough to leave his base unprotected under the eyes of the other three level-eight people. After all, the current situation was pretty obvious that Lan Lu, Lin Qiao, Wu Chengyue were all on the same side.
Huaxia Base had so many secrets. Without him staying in the base and guarding them personally, those secrets might not stay secret.
"He wont go no matter what. For him, the underground mission isnt important, neither is the meeting after the mission ends. Whats really important is his secret plan," Lin Qiao gave a cold smile as she pointed out the truth straightforwardly.
Lan Lu looked at her and said curiously, "Do you know about his secret plan?"
Lin Qiao replied, "I think his plan will be to target me or Wu Chengyue. Its not gonna have anything to do with you guys."
Earlier today, Lin Qiao saw Si Kongchen at the meeting. She wasnt able to read his mind, but from the look in his eyes, she could tell that he did have some kind of secret plan under the cover of the grand meeting this time. She could also feel that his target would be her or Wu Chengyue.
Wu Chengyue smilingly glanced at her, then said, "Whatever plan he has, we have nothing to be afraid of." If Si Kongchen dared to make a move, they would just deal with it.
Lan Lu smiled and said, "Chief Wu, you sound confident. I guess you two are already fully prepared, arent you?"
"Of course!" Wu Chengyue also smiled, "Si Kongchens purpose is so obvious. We are surely prepared. So Chief Lan, other than your discovery from underground, do you have anything else to say to us?"
"No," Lan Lu paused briefly when he heard the last few words Wu Chengyue said, then realized that the latter was signaling for him to leave. He thought for a moment and then continued, "Since Si Kongchen is not gonna take part in the mission, which one of us do you think is the most suitable for the job?"
Lan Lu was not a fighter. His spirit power might allow him to grasp every detail underground, but it wouldnt be as useful as Lin Qiaos powers. Also, his body was relatively fragile. If he encountered some kind of creature that was spirit-power-proof, he wouldnt even be able to run for his life.
"I have spirit power. As you know, Im weak. Im afraid I wont be able to protect the entire team in the underground world, so you guys can stop looking at me," he spread his hands and said frankly.
Wu Chengyue looked at him, then at Lin Qiao.
Currently, all three in the room believed that Lin Qiao was the most suitable one for the job. She was a zombie, possessing poisonous fire and a space. She wouldnt need to worry about her own safety at all. Wu Chengyue was powerful too, but his lightning power could be too destructive. With even a slight carelessness, he might end up burying the whole team and those underground creatures together in the earth.
As the two men turned to her simultaneously, Lin Qiao said, "Im fine with it. Id like to see if theres really an unimaginable space underground like you said."
She was indeed curious about what made so many underground creatures come up to the earths surface. After hearing what Lan Lu said, she started to believe the existence of the underground world. If it didnt exist, where did all those weird creatures from? The emergence of huge numbers of underground creatures didnt seem like something that could happen within a short time.
Lan Lu smiled. Unlike him, Wu Chengyue seemed to struggle a little.
"Whats wrong? Are you worried about Miss. Lus safety? I think shes much better at self-protecting as you are. So, she has a better chance to come back from the underground world alive than we do." Seeing the smile on Wu Chengyues face fade, Lan Lu said to him jokingly.
One important part of the underground mission was for people to stay alive and bring back their discovery. As base leaders, Wu Chengyue and Lan Lu both took the big picture as their first priority when they thought about the mission. However, Wu Chengyue was not very happy to let his girlfriend carry the dangerous mission. Lan Lu was right though, as she was the most suitable person for the job.
If he himself carried the mission instead of her, she might have to deal with Si Kongchens scheme. That would be dangerous too.
Lin Qiao was confident about protecting herself. After all, her zombie body and her space were her double insurance. Her body was stronger than the bodies of human beings by many times over. Her power and sensations were both as sharp as those of top-graded level-eight beings. She believed that nothing but a level-nine mutated beast could threaten her life.
Of course, there would still be a lot of dangers. Some unknown things or creatures underground might affect zombies somehow.
As Lin Qiao seemed to have made up her mind, Wu Chengyue had no choice but to agree as well. He turned to Lan Lu and once again asked him, "Alright. Anything else?"
It was the second time he tried to ask Lan Lu to leave, so the latter gave him a meaningful smile. But this time, he didnt stay anything as he stood up and walked toward the door.
"Alright, this is it," he said and then walked out.
Only after watching him leave did Wu Chengyue feel slightly relaxed. He turned around to talk to Lin Qiao, but before he said anything, Duan Juan showed up at the door.
"Eh-hem, Im sorry to interrupt you, but theres news from the base," Duan Juan knocked on the door, then looked at the two and said with a smile.
Seeing that, Wu Chengyue felt a little speechless.
