During theirtrip, hesawa monster’s corpse and actually killed a monster himself. And because he had served the Steelwallsrather thanother families, Hans was more used to death and corpses than the average person. However, the creature in front of him was on a different level.
Under its torn skin, they could see itsAdam'sapple bobbing up and down.
The zombie walked slowly butboldlytowards the two, and Hans took a step backward.
“S-s-sir Zich! T-that is!”
Zich moved past the stuttering Hans and pulled out his sword. The sunlight dyed thebladered, making it look like the sword of judgment that an angel might use.
Zich followed the footsteps of the zombie that was coming towards him. Behind him, Hans clutched his torch and gulped his saliva.
As Zichclosed in onit, the zombie stretched out its hands. In its open mouth, dirty teeth hung irregularly, and the zombie’s long and black fingernails looked sharp enough to rip a person’s skin into pieces and take out their bones.Its discharge was toxicenoughto rot a whole body.
