The Villain's Wife - Chapter 833
Chapter 907 Bei Tian Part 1 of 5
He was still alive?
Bei Tian’s lips were caked dry, his throat so ached as he squinted his eyes to the sun. How long has it been? He couldn’t help but ask himself? A month? Or two? And yet he was still alive. How could a man survive in the desert without water? He glanced at the man scouting next to his body. Was he trying to steal from him? Bei Tian sneered. He came here with nothing but his clothes.
Was this person trying to steal his clothes?
He ignored the teenager and closed his eyes. Maybe a few more months and his body will finally give up. Maybe he will turn into some sort of a mummy? The thought made him chuckle.
A gasp escaped from the youth’s lips. “You-You’re alive!?” It was a language that Bei Tian recognized. Arabian. Again, he ignored the teen and just continued lying in the desert acting like a statue. Maybe this will be enough to kill him? He heard the youth’s steps running away from him.
Which is perfectly understandable considering he was a monster.
Monster. Just the thought of the word is enough to make him depressed. How long has it been since then? Shaking his head, Bei Tian sat down and finally looked at his surroundings. He was sure that the child earlier would get his neighbors to come here.
He needed to leave.
Without any hesitation, Bei Tian stood and let out a sigh. Staying in the desert is useless against him. It was as useless as staying at the bottom of the ocean. With this in mind, he started walking towards the east. Maybe he should just go home? He wondered.
But where is home?
A few tens of years ago… Zhou Jingren and Lily left this world. A few tens of years ago, Qin Yuanfeng followed them. His home was not in this world. Bei Tian hastened his steps. Maybe he needed to visit Hong Kong. How long has it been since he left that place?
Twenty-five years?Thirty? He couldn’t really remember. He started touring the world to find answers. But in the end, he only found more and more questions. What happened to him? Why did he stop aging? Why does his wound heal in a matter of seconds? How come he was stronger and more agile than normal people?
The only thing that he could think of was the unknown substance that those people injected into him a few tens of years ago. The Order of the Spectre.
The people who changed this world. Bei Tian’s changes are not only in his body but also in his mind. Suffice to say, he can now recall everything as if they just happened a few seconds ago. Right now, Bei Tian’s mind took him to the things that happened twenty years ago.
The era that introduced them to the super-powered humans. Teenagers who seemed to develop some sort of genetic mutations just like in the comic book that he used to read all those years ago. After that… the war erupted.
How could each nation allow such an organization to monopolize all those talented youths? The US wanted the substance that was injected into them when they were born and so were the Russians. Then China chimed in. Slowly… the world wanted their share too. France, j.a.pan, UAE, Britain.
It was chaos— pure chaos caused by the greedy hearts of humans. The war only ended after a few years when they decided to produce this gene changing serum for everyone. Once a child turns five, they will be injected with this serum.
Once a child turns ten another serum will be injected. If they awaken these genes, then each country will take them to study the basics of their ability. The peace soon followed. However, these didn’t mean that some countries developed after the war. In fact, most third world countries perish and become a part of the bigger ones. The ravages of the nuclear war were too much for this world to recover.
Due to the radiation in the air, the temperature of the world had rapid changes. The days became hotter and the nights became colder, prompting a lot of life on earth to die. Soon after, most people are now living in a secured facility developed by scientists that could withstand the heat and the changes In the climate.
Humanity is slowly fading. It’s not even fifty years after those genes were discovered and yet, humanity is already dying. Bei Tian sigh. This should not concern him.
It’s not like he would die with them anyway. He had been shot and drowned and stabbed. He starved himself and even buried himself underground. And yet, he was still here. Even the scorching temperature that would have damaged anyone who stayed under it for more than thirty minutes had no effect on his body.
What a doomed existence.
Bei Tian sighed. He continued walking until he arrived in one of the bases. With his special identification in hand, he immediately went inside and marveled at the technology that man had created to survive under the extreme heat and cold temperatures. He raised his head to look at the doom-like defense system that covered the whole area.
Shaking his head, Bei Tian continued walking. His eyes soon roamed around the street that was littered with the latest technology in the world. Cars that could fly and withstand the heat, people who were wearing a special type of suit that would enable them to walk outside to hunt for mutated animals that survived the nuclear war by absorbing radiation.
Times have indeed changed. He lowered his gaze and walked towards a pub. At this time of the day, the pub had no customers.
“Mr. Bei?” A middle-aged man with a Mohawk hairstyle exclaimed. “You— “
“I didn’t die.” He said, exhaustion apparent in his voice.
“Of course… please…” the man immediately grabbed a bottle of expensive wine. “The same?”
“Hmm.” He nodded. “News?”
“Well… Someone from the Zhou Clan called for an emergency.”
“Zhou?” he frowned. Aside from a few people that worked under him, Kaen, Kher, and Kai knew of his existence. They were the only surviving members of the Zhou Clan that knew who he really was. After all, when Lily and Zhou Jingren knew of his special circ.u.mstances, they immediately arranged everything to keep his ident.i.ty hidden from the government.
All traces of his previous life were gone. His previous pictures were burnt, his name was changed, all of his images online disappeared. Not even his birth certificate remained. Of course, at that time, he was already close to Kaen and Kher. Erasing their memories is not something that Lily and Zhou Jingren could do.
“Yes, Sir. It was Madam Kai. She said it’s an emergency. We received the call a week ago.” The man answered before he started telling Bei Tian everything that happened too far. Rumors and a.s.sa.s.sination’s, even the new result of the experiments that started to explain all the abilities that those kids had.
“So… the experimentation is still ongoing.” His gaze turned dark. Years ago, he already did his best to ruin all those Russian laboratories. He attacked them and tried to find out everything about their study hoping it would answer his questions.
“Each government started asking people to volunteer. They wanted answers.” The man shrugged. Some children had developed different types of abilities that could potentially harm a human being. Because of this, the government needed to study more of them to understand their current situation.
“Well then… I will go to China as soon as possible.” After saving the Zhou Clan from the war, Bei Tian left and started trying to kill himself in various ways. Of course, the result was always a failure. However, before he left, he specifically asked those kids to always call him once a life or death situation arises.
He finished his drink and stood from his seat. He then went to the second floor of the pub and changed into a suit that would make him look like a normal person walking under the heat of the sun. Now dressed in a black suit, Bei Tian walked out of the pub and walked towards the transportation zone of the base.
Soon… he will see them soon.
