Kurumi Tokisaki's Planar Journey - Chapter 25
Kurumi had 5 free attribute points that she could add to any stat depending on her wishes.
Unsurprisingly, intelligence was not one of those attributes. It might be possible after the invention of a biochip that allows you to live another hundred years in a dream but not currently. Well, maybe there is, but she is didn’t know.
Her strength of 1.8 had already reached 2.0 after her adaptation to her new body. On the other hand, her speed and endurance had not changed. Hre coordination had also increased, reaching 2.0.
For now, she would focus on speed and endurance. Kurumi quickly used up the attribute points, increasing her strength to 3 points, speed to 3 points, and endurance to 2.8. Her physical fitness had reached a terrifying level!
She could instantly feel the improvement. The stainless steel sword in her hand was far too light. Kurumi even had a feeling that told her she could snap her sword in half! However, reason told her that it was impossible. Her increased stats also restored her tired body to its peak.
She hurriedly glanced at the “Charm Mark” at the bottom of the attribute panel and ran towards Shizuka Marikawa. The situation was critical!
The explosive speed brought by her strength increased a step further, and the strong wind whipped up Shizuka Marikawa’s skirt, revealing her purple underwear.
Before Marikawa could react, the zombie baring its fangs and claws at her lost its head!
On the other side, the air nail gun Kohta Hirano used was knocked to the ground by a zombie! It waved its arms and prepared to pounce at him!
The gun was not very useful to Takashi Komuro, but he was desperately resisting a zombie’s attack, so he had no time to pull out the gun and throw it to Kohta Hirano!
“Sou! – pu!”
Kurumi’s sword shot from her hands like an arrow from a strong bow. It sliced through the wind and slid through the zombie’s open mouth before falling to the ground. There was a cracking sound as it gouged a hole in the cement ground!
It was already dyed red by the time it came out of the zombie’s skull. The two colors on the sword’s edge mixed, shocking the hearts and souls of anyone who witnessed.
Kohta Hirano was so scared he fell to the ground. There were a few drops of blood on his round, fat face, which made him look quite funny. When the wind picked up, he immediately shivered.
On the other side, Kurumi did not stop moving. Kurumi realized that there would soon be a place for them to rest after a quick search through her memories. Once they got there, she would throw away her school uniform. The blood on it was too disgusting!
Her white hands clenched into fists. Under the moonlight, her hands, which were as white as jade, seemed to have a bright luster, gleaming like suet jade.
“Kohta, stop daydreaming. Throw the knife to Saeko! And Saya, get closer to me!” Kurumi punched a zombie in the temple and turned to Kohta Hirano.
Saya Takagi carefully avoided one zombie after another, trying to run towards Kurumi. It was not that she did not want to run back because these zombies seemed to be intentionally or unintentionally surrounding them!
Kohta Hirano, who was sitting on the ground, stood up after hearing Kurumi’s shout. He hurriedly picked up his nail gun off the ground and threw the stainless steel sword out with all his might. “Senior Sister Busujima!”
Saeko Busujima, who was in a bad situation, smashed open a zombie’s head with her shinai, but she had to precisely control the force every time to prevent it from breaking.
Even with her extraordinary strength, she felt exhausted after so many attacks.
She swept forward with all her might, looking for a chance to catch her breath. Looking at Kohta Hirano, she saw a blood-stained steel sword flying towards her!
With a spin of her body, her right hand grabbed the hilt of the sword, borrowing the momentum to chop down, causing another blood flower to blossom!
With the steel sword, Saeko Busujima’s combat strength soared rapidly. All the techniques she dared not use with her shinai were now pouring down on the zombies!
After throwing the sword, Kohta Hirano began to shoot at the zombies around Takashi Komuro and Rei Miyamoto.
It helped relieve the pressure on the two of them while allowing him to search for an escape route!
The number of zombies was getting higher and higher. The sounds of battle attracted them.
The number of zombies here had even exceeded the number of people at the school gate earlier!
Kohta Hirano did not think they could win this battle due to the disparity in number. Although they had Tokisaki and Busujima, people would always tire. Even if these zombies stood still and let them kill them, they would still have to kill for a long time!
With his military background, he knew finding a breakthrough point was his most important task. The bridge was already safely blocked, and it was impossible to cross to the other side. So the only choice was… jumping into the river.
It had to be said that Kohta Hirano’s plan was perfect. If not for the increase in Kurumi’s strength, she too would have chosen to jump into the river and escape. However, he had misjudged Kurumi’s true strength!
Along the way, she had shown her superb swordsmanship, but Kurumi was not an expert cold weapon user! Her proficiency with firearms had not yet displayed their brilliance!
Even when Kurumi used her pistol to shoot the bald leader in the head from far away, straight to the middle of his eyebrows, Kohta only thought that it was luck.
He had his pride. Although Kurumi was much stronger than him when it came to firearms, he would not lose to anyone here!
Regarding Kurumi’s combat proficiency, she currently had several combat skills available to activate, so it was just a matter of picking the best combination?
Her beautiful boots had long been dyed red with blood, and the numerous corpses lying around her showed her strength.
Zombies had no IQ. This was the biggest weakness of this kind of creature. With time, anyone could learn to deal with them quickly and efficiently!
It was not like fighting other humans. You had to consider all kinds of factors when fighting humans. One had to be unpredictable when attacking and, unless there was a significant disparity in strength, every fight would consume physical strength and mental strength!
Another kick landed on one of the zombie’s knees. Her 3 points of strength instantly shattered its bones! Its body, which was swaying back and forth, was now directly kneeling on the ground. If Kurumi had not grabbed its head with both hands, it would have fallen down.
With a slight twist, the zombie’s head spun 360 degrees. Its neck was broken. The flesh on its neck had been stretched thin. If it were twisted a few more times, it probably would have separated from its body, causing blood to splash all over the ground!
On the side of the bridge, the huge screws holding the bridge’s cables had already become black and red along aside from some grayish-white lumps. The cold wind of the night kept blowing, but the smell of blood did not disperse. Instead, it became thicker and thicker!
This was the second last step of Kurumi’s plan for dealing with the zombie. Before it could turn its neck, its head had already been slapped down like a rubber ball.
The side of this zombie’s head had ruptured, and the “rubber ball” began leaking air. Kurumi did not even want to look at it. She immediately kicked it aside and kicked another zombie in the knee, repeating the same trick.
“Bang!” Another zombie had been eliminated. The entire process could be completed in less than three seconds. It was simple and convenient. The blood by Kurumi’s feet had even begun to seep into her shoes!
Like a small waterfall deep in the mountains and forests, blood flowed into the river from the bridge. Looking from afar would reveal a curtain of blood dripping from the bridge, straight down to the river!
The nearby waters were dyed red. Fortunately, this was not a famous river. Otherwise, no one knew what kind of evil things would be in there.
Ripples appeared in the blood-colored waters from time to time. Bubbles appear one after another. The freshwater fish happily swam in the water! They did not care about the thick smell of blood in the water.
While Kurumi wasn’t paying attention, the fish became violent, their eyes turning blood red.
Suddenly, they began to bite those around them in a frenzy!
