Oh My God! Earthlings are Insane! - Chapter 385
As the metal moaned, the steel pipe that was half a meter thick was snapped in half, and the Ultimate Sandworm spat it out.
The rows of sharp teeth in its mouth immediately started spinning and vibrating rapidly.
The Ultimate Sandworm’s teeth were strong enough to crush the sturdiest stones and metal. Naturally, it could also crush the bodies of superhumans.
Fortunately, before it could completely shut its oral cavity, Meng Chao had taken a huge stride forward and forced his way into its throat.
Even though he managed to avoid being crushed by sharp teeth, the depths of the throat were no heaven either.
The powerful muscles around him started contracting inward in an attempt to crush him to death.
The acid, adhesive liquid, and poison in the depths of the abdominal cavity also flowed out, continuously corroding Meng Chao’s skin, and it made him feel sharp pain.
And along with the foul smell came the next methane bomb or shattered stone attack. The Ultimate Sandworm was quickly preparing it.
But Meng Chao endured the pain and stench as he brought up the RG-6.
It could fire eight small fist-sized grenades in ten seconds, which was why it was well-loved by Red Dragon Army soldiers.
It was also the one weapon normal people could utilize the best when they faced large monsters.
In the weapons market, it had a mighty nickname—Destroyer.
“Take this, monster!”
Meng Chao pulled the trigger of the Destroyer.
Fist-sized grenades were pushed forward by flames and shot out of the barrel that was the size of a bowl.
Since the Ultimate Sandworm’s muscles served as an obstruction, the grenade exploded close to Meng Chao.
The impact made him narrow his eyes. He also saw that the depths of the Ultimate Sandworm’s throat blasted to a mess.
Meng Chao grinned and pulled the trigger repeatedly.
Bang! Boom! Bang, bang! Boom, boom! Bang, bang, bang! Boom, boom, boom!
His vitality magnetic field resonated with the roars that came from the eight gun mounted RG-6.
The Destroyer wreaked havoc in the Ultimate Sandworm, and with a series of fierce explosions, it tore a bloody path in the monster.
The Ultimate Sandworm was in so much pain that it wanted to die. It rolled around nonstop.
Meng Chao felt the world spin and rolled along with the Ultimate Sandworm.
But he kept a tight grip over the flesh in the Ultimate Sandworm’s abdominal cavity. The moment the spins slowed down a little, he would fire off another destructive grenade.
Very soon, all eight grenades were shot and created a mess in the Ultimate Sandworm’s body.
Meng Chao tossed away the RG-6 and pulled out the two assault rifles from his back.
Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang!
Two firing lines acted like two hot scalpels that cut into the Ultimate Sandworm’s body crudely but accurately.
Meng Chao was not shooting at random.
Very soon, as the flesh was blasted open by the shots, he noticed nerve bundles that looked like electric cables.
The nerve bundles were as thick as fingers. They shone with a faint blue light and looked really bizarre in the monster’s dark cavity.
At that moment, they were like really bright sources of light that moved the nerve bundles back and forth. It seemed like they were transmitting signals of pain and fear.
‘That’s it. Gao Ye and the abnormal beasts behind him are seriously evil geniuses. They actually managed to think about how to fuse the nervous chains in ecdysozoa creatures and thick nerve bundles from octopi. Then, they also placed the myelin sheaths unique to mammals to replace brains, and hence, they could increase their intelligence.
‘But it’s all thanks to his nerves being thick that I was able to trace the clues and find… this!’
Meng Chao emptied all his cartridges.
When the gun barrels of the assault rifles started burning with a hot, dark red shade in the dark, he tossed away the guns and brought out his chain sabers again.
No matter how tough the Ultimate Sandworm was outside, its abdominal cavity would be reduced to a bloody mess when Meng Chao mercilessly trampled on it.
The two chain sabers moved as if they were in No Man’s Land. Meng Chao cut upward the shining nerve bundles like he was a butcher cutting up a bull. Soon, he found a spot where seven or eight nerve bundles were connected with each other. A lump of flesh that looked as deformed and ugly as a tumor but throbbed like a heart was there. It shone with a piercing neon light.
This was the Ultimate Sandworm’s subesophageal ganglion.
Earthworms, sandworms, and other annelids relied on their subesophageal ganglion to control their mobility no matter how much they evolved.
Destroying their brain tissues was meaningless.
Destroying the relatively independent ring-shaped nerves from outside could only cripple part of their bodies.
It was only when their subesophageal ganglion was completely destroyed that they would be killed in one hit.
Meng Chao smiled and crossed his sabers.
Then, as if the Ultimate Sandworm had sensed that death was impending, it constricted its subesophageal ganglion.
It then screamed fiercely at the muscles around it through eight thick nerve bundles.
The muscles started twitching madly. They tried to form the next air gush to force Meng Chao out of the abdominal cavity.
But before that, Meng Chao’s eyes, temples, spirit tattoos on his palms, and the crystals embedded in his sabers shone with the brightest light.
There were six crystals embedded in Surging Lightning and Bloody Flame, and they were all of the highest grade. That included one supreme-grade Red Radiance Jade. But due to the vibrations from Meng Chao’s vitality magnetic field, all of them shattered.
The spirit energy he received was enough to release more than ten killing moves. In an instant, all of them gushed out. Not only did they turn the spirit tattoos carved into the sabers into small offensive spirit energy magnetic fields, but also gave the sabers a crystalline quality, as if they were made of pure energy.
Meng Chao felt as if he was not holding two sabers, but two surging, violent streams.
He suffered a backlash from the spirit energy, and dozens of main meridians and hundreds of branch meridians in his body started burning fiercely.
His skin cracked along the spirit tattoos, and blood drops that were crystalline in quality seeped out of them.
But he gritted his teeth and controlled himself. When the resonance of his vitality magnetic field and spirit energy magnetic field reached their max, he rammed the two streams into the Ultimate Sandworm’s subesophageal ganglion.
The superhumans and soldiers in the tunnel witnessed a shocking scene that could not be described with words.
Meng Chao had actually jumped into the Ultimate Sandworm’s mouth on his own and was swallowed by the Ultimate Sandworm.
Just when they were about to cry out in surprise, a chain of muffled explosions came from the Ultimate Sandworm.
Each explosion caused it to shrink into a ball and turn about in extreme pain. It no longer had the mighty presence of an abnormal beast.
Soon, it started losing strength while tossing and turning. It lay limp in the water like an earthworm that had been exposed to the sun for three days. Crystalline tumors rose on its skin.
Just when everyone was puzzled as to what those tumors were, they shattered, and from within came Meng Chao’s rampaging spirit flames. They were like tens of huge light pillars that lit up the entire dark tunnel.
“Is this guy really a human?”
Even Lu Siya was transfixed as she mumbled under her breath.
“He’s Meng Chao, right? He’s really vicious. It’s no wonder why the forums call him Ace Chao!”
The soldiers from the Red Dragon Army gasped in surprise while staring dumbfounded at the sight before them.
The Ultimate Sandworm arched its body one last time and tried to gather up the power hidden deep in its abdominal cavity. But Meng Chao raced ahead of it and detonated the high-energy substances in its body.
Boom! Boom, boom! Boom, boom, boom, boom!
The explosions came from the Ultimate Sandworm itself. They were even stronger than the explosions caused by the grenade, and made its abdominal cavity implode completely.
The torn up Ultimate Sandworm stopped moving.
“He… actually used such a crazy method to kill this giant?” Lu Siya and the soldiers looked at each other before they cried out at the same time, “Meng Chao!”
Meng Chao had a dream.
In his dream, he was in a maze made of flesh and organs.
He kept running in search of an exit, but no matter how he looked around, all he saw around him was a red sea of blood.
Then, he flew into a rage and brought his sabers up. He swung them fiercely until he broke out of the fleshy walls covered in fine fur. He saw light again.
Before him was a city.
It was the Dragon City of his previous life. It was a few seconds before the apocalypse.
Ten thousand suns had already risen above Dragon City.
He shouted at the top of his lungs, calling for the citizens to hide and run, but it was already too late.
The ten thousand suns turned the world into a sea of light, and that sea swallowed up Dragon City and human civilization until not a single bit was left.
When the light of destruction gradually faded away, a brilliant sea of stars appeared in front of Meng Chao.
In front of the sea was the blue planet that they always dreamed of. It quietly levitated at a spot within his reach.
It was clean, quiet, sacred, and beautiful.
Meng Chao was unable to help himself. He reached out to touch the planet that looked like a blue gem.
However, right when his fingertips touched the blue planet, the sacred home of humans started burning. The blue planet soon turned a deep red as it was engulfed by strange flames.
It was like a burnt, ugly heart.
Then, it turned from deep red to stark white, and it started falling apart like sand before it disappeared with the wind.
Even the dazzling sea of stars serving as its background was hidden by a mass of formless black clouds.
The stars faded away one by one. Sometimes, they would struggle to shine, but it was all in vain. Soon, not a single star remained in Meng Chao’s field of vision. Only the universe and its endless darkness were left.
Meng Chao was terrified and jumped up from the darkness, only to realize that he was lying in a medical cabin and was surrounded by warmth and gene medicine as well as high-calorie nutritional fluid.
He exhaled and finally remembered where he was.
But the nightmare from moments ago was unlike a normal nightmare. It did not fade away as his mind cleared up. Instead, it was imprinted on his cerebral cortex clearly, just like the Dragon City and its apocalypse.
‘Is this a nightmare or a revelation from the future, just like my apocalypse diary?
‘There’s nothing to say anything about Dragon City’s destruction, but why did Earth also burn in my nightmare, and why did all the stars fade away?’
Meng Chao scratched his head. He felt that his return to the past and Kindling were not simple.
As his cultivation realm, fighting strength, and mind improved, he should be able to unravel more secrets, and they would not be limited to just Dragon City. They would involve the Other World, Earth, and even the stars.
Of course, right now, those secrets did not have major connections to him. They could not be solved by a mere superhuman at the peak of Earth Realm.
He should keep simple and small goals. He would deal with other matters once he defeated the Supernatural Entities and abnormal beasts!
