Chapter 5- Disaster Strikes
Sponsored: Trent S
Finish talking to Yu Kai, Cheng Yang then started walking toward the front of a truck because he saw the wood processing plant boss Lee jumped out of the car. He seemed to be really serious about this transaction, to personally run this trip.
When he saw Cheng Yang finally became relieved, then started looking around the surrounding, said: “kid, what did you buy so much wood here to do? Is it to build a house here? This ground isn’t flat! ”
Cheng Yang laughed: “it will be in a bit. ”
Boss Lee surprised, his mouth wide enough to fit a whole duck. This guy! Although Luo Feng Po isn’t a cliff, but to make it flat to the extent of building a house, perhaps not one or two days to do it. And it must be done with heavy machinery.
Cheng Yang said: “Boss Lee you don’t have to worry, just unload the timber at the curb on the side, after that’s done I’ll give you the rest of the transfer.
Boss Lee looked at Cheng Yang, sighed and said, “well, you are the buyer, we will listen to you. ”
Afterward, boss Lee began ordering his workers to unload the wood off of the 12 vehicles. Each wood is more than two feet in diameter, five meters in length, weight is huge. For Cheng Yang this scale is required, because for him any less size timber would be useless.
Cheng Yang returned to Yu Kai’s side, Yu Kai also react, a wry smile: “Yoko, you can’t tell me all of the money you borrow was to buy these wood. ”
Cheng Yang nodded and said, “it is so, how else would I have the money to buy so much wood? ”
Yu Kai a wry smile: “Yoko, I’ll called you boss, OK? Even if it’s really coming to an end, shouldn’t you had buy some food? Can you eat with wood? And we are in the wilderness, so what’s the point of having buy timber. ”
Cheng Yang quietly said: “rest assured, in time you’ll understand. ”
He said so, but over time, he gradually hold mixed emotions.
If his predicted disaster doesn’t come, what would he do? How would he get the rest of the 100,000 dollars owe to give to boss Lee? Or would he tell boss Lee to sent the wood back, but it’s estimated that the $80,000 deposit won’t be return back to him. Either way would make him be in debt of at least $80,000, making Cheng Yang feel depressed.
But if disaster does come and he isn’t prepared in advance, that could endanger his own life. Think of these, Cheng Yang’s mood felt a little better.
Cheng Yang see the time points to 4:45 PM, and Niu Bing hasn’t come yet, it made him anxious.
Now he made a phone call to the other party, but Niu Bing had just got on the car, hasn’t even made it out of the city. It was cursed by Cheng Yang, wished he was able to give him a good beating, he’s making jokes about his own life.
Cheng Yang immediately urged Niu Bing to tell the driver to go faster, that you must arrive here before 5 PM to Luo Feng Po.
When the call finished, Cheng Yang feel a little concern. In his view, Niu Bing now hasn’t made it out of the city, to reach Luo Feng Po in 15 minutes is basically impossible. After thinking for a bit, he made a decision.
Cheng Yang looked around, then toward Yu Kai and Liu Hao said, “no matter what happen, don’t panic, and stay still as much as possible. I go to boss Lee and tell them. ”
Cheng Yang also ignored Yu Kai questioning, went straight to the team beside the truck and said, “Mr. Lee, you let these brothers down to have a rest and have a smoke, after all, this is hard physical labor, we don’t want them to get too tired and have an accident now. “
With that, Cheng Yang took out a pack of cigarettes, and handed it to Mr. Lee.
“OK! “Boss Lee look up at the sky and smiled,”Anyway, we are making good progress, everybody come down to rest a few minutes.”
Watching all these guys jumped out of the truck, Cheng Yang showed a wisp of a smile. As long as these people don’t stay in the truck, their lives shouldn’t be endangered. Maybe later on they will all be his men and if they are injured he will feel distressed.
4:57 PM … …
4:58 PM… …
4:59 PM… …
Time is ticking closer, Niu Bing ultimately failed to arrive.
Cheng Yang’s palms began to produce cold sweats, Yu Kai, who is also nervous, only Lee boss’s crowd is relaxed and happy. They occasionally turned to see Cheng Yang stiff expression, and felt rather strange.
Suddenly, a gust of wind came from the sky, instantly sweeping across the Earth, the surrounding trees started shaking.
This wind was strange, generally speaking wind is not blown from top to bottom, except at high altitude. So boss Lee and others were stunned looking upward at the sky, and the originally clear blue sky suddenly became gray producing an eerie atmosphere.
“This……” Lee boss is about to speak, suddenly became silent, because he found the ground seemed to be trembling slightly, and became more and more intense.
“Earthquake……” don’t know who broke into a shout, panic started to spread among the crowd.
Cheng Yang at this time was calm, said: “finally came! ”
Just a touch of bitterness was displayed his eyes that no one found.
“Yoko, this … … This is what you … … you say disaster? “Liu’s voice trembled, which is a natural fear of humans for the unknown.
Cheng Yang quietly said: “this is just the beginning! ”
Ground vibrations was increasing, Luo Feng Po vegetation is good, there are no stones rolling down, but under some trees in this devastating winds was completely pressed to the ground.
“Don’t run, everyone stay where you are! “Cheng Yang tell boss Lee’s group to stay, he had to shout out loudly. Although the wind is very strong, but Cheng Yang’s voice although faint was able to reached the ears of everyone.
Cheng Yang’s decision was correct, here the mountain is moderate, so it’s relatively safe, but if someone ran out of this place, it would be hard to say.
Five minutes later, the shaking of the ground still continues heavily, Cheng Yang, who, without exception was also on the ground. Boss Lee, who knew nothing of this was scared, there is such a strong earthquake, how far did the damage spread? In the city now has how many building collapsed? And how many people were killed from this?
From the sky, a flying plane suddenly plummeted, then hit the ground and become a huge cloud of fire … …
Cheng Yang knows that at this time the city is completely into mayhem, brought by the severe earthquake the panic is unthinkable. In the face of natural disasters, human don’t have any power of resistance.
Millions of people pouring out from individual buildings at this moment, no one would dare to take the elevator, huge groups of people crowded into the secure channel to dash downstairs.
High-rises hasn’t collapsed in the tremor, or haven’t collapsed the first time, this gave most people the opportunity to escape.
The tragedy is that in the process of escape, the resulting stampede produced huge casualties, a figure no one to count. Because later on, humans don’t have the energy to worry about these things.
10 minutes later, high rise building finally collapsed, leaving behind a land of ruins, and people standing firmly in the ruins … …
They are packed in the open square or on the street, everyone is trying to get in touch with the outside world on their mobile phones, but they soon gave up the idea, because the phone stopped working.
What is this situation? Everyone was filled with fear. Earthquake shouldn’t affect the phone power system? If it was one or two cell phone, you can also say the battery was exhausted, but all of the phone couldn’t be turn on, it was strange.
Ground continues to shake, with a mysterious atmosphere of the winds blowing in everyone’s ears.
Everyone, regardless of their social status at this moment was full of helplessness, they hope to get the message as soon as possible, hoping to find out the whole story of this disaster. At this moment, they still think it’s just an earthquake.
Xiangcheng city government went into action at this moment, they don’t want to wait until the national rescue force arrived, and be branded with doing a poor relief job. But now the earthquake is still continuing, all they can do is very limited.
Cheng Yang, who were lying on the ground at the moment, not that he don’t want to stand up, but it shake so much that he can’t stand. Here than in the city, they are on a gentle slope, have a lower vibration here. This time they dare not stand on the street, who know if a sudden jolt would sent them into the river?
“Look! …… That … … What the hell is that? ” Boss Lee a look of horror, with one hand pointing toward the top of Luo Feng slope.
Cheng Yang several people looked up, but found that Luo Feng Po hilltop was slowly sinking, as if quicksand in the desert.
Other than Cheng Yang, all the people into panic, Yu Kai pale said: “we will be pulled into the ground? Yoko, I think we should go…… “
Cheng Yang firmly shakes his head, and said: “this is our chance, can’t go! Also I can guarantee that we won’t be pull under the ground. ”
Yu Kai few people believe Cheng Yang, but the group of workers didn’t know Cheng Yang so have no trust in him, two people got up, rushed toward the street.
“Come back! “Boss Lee was sensible, loudly against them running, but the others didn’t stop. In the midst of this wind, his voice didn’t spread to the other ear.
When the two men rushed to the street, a truck just can’t stand the ground tremors, directly roll over, the car hasn’t been remove of the timber fell out. With fear in the two people eyes, the logs overwhelm them, and then there was no movement seen from them.
The sudden deaths enhance the people’s fears, before the movement was great, but after all, they were all still alive. Now suddenly die two people, and was also crushed to pieces, the situation is entirely different.
After more than 10 minutes, the hundred-meter high hill abruptly was sink into the ground, Cheng Yang, who gave birth to a dream-like feeling. He guessed before here will become the ground, but didn’t expect to appear in such an excited way.
The ground tremor finally stopped, people thought disaster around the world has ended when a voice resounded in everyone’s mind around the world, even the deaf can perceive the sound content.
“Little ants! Your laziness has made the gods angry, creatures of the universe must start a brutal killing to evolution. At this time, you will begin to enjoy the killing feast! ”
