Esper Harem in the Apocalypse

Rudy was optimistic, handsome, and blessed with knowledge. He topped every exam with minimal effort and got into his first choice university. Growing up in a low-class family, he had to do what it took to be a successful person. So he focused on his studies instead of enjoying his life, and aced the university. However, he got into an accident on the day of his graduation. He was left crippled at the age of 23. One night, a mysterious man visited him and said he was from an organization that was working on the ‘gene experiment.’ The man offered Rudy a chance to live his life again if the experiment succeeded. However, after months of experiments, nothing happened and he died. “If I knew this would happen to me, I would have lived a better life.” But when he opened his eyes again, he found himself in his high school. He later learned that he had become an esper with all the psychic abilities. "Life gets pretty boring when you can do anything you want." - Rudy. === Disclaimer - The cover belongs to me. **** Discord Server Link- https://discord.gg/NFPcvcUS2W

The Super Gene Experiment

Once Rudy was done with the bath, he went upstairs to his room.

Fortunately, the house was big enough for a family of four to live. It had two bedrooms upstairs and a kitchen, living room, and bathroom downstairs.

Rudy was feeling sleepy, so he decided to take a nap.

He woke up 5 hours later with a nightmare he couldn't recall.

"I think I dreamed about my previous life," Rudy muttered.

The five-hour nap Rudy just had was worth thousands of hours of sleep for him. It was his first time sleeping peacefully in many years.

Rudy sighed and muttered, "I feel like I will have that nightmare if I sleep again."

He grabbed his phone and connected to the neighbor's WiFi.

"Let's see what Apocalypse Reina was talking about," he uttered and searched on the internet.

Rudy got many feeds and blogs, but he opened the first one and read it.

Five years ago, scientists were researching bio-gene experiments.

'It's somewhat similar to the gene experiment they did on me,' Rudy uttered inwardly.

The scientists wanted to create superhumans for the military and sell the serum to the rest of the world. However, all of their experiments failed.

They successfully created a super-animal, who had 10x times more powers than they should have. However, all the experiments on humans failed. The genes rejected to merge together.

After months of research, the scientists found a new way. They altered the human DNA and used it to mix with the gene. And surprisingly, it worked.

They were getting pressure from the government, so they didn't have enough time to check the side effects or any extended or delayed reaction.

They shipped the military, and they used them on the soldiers.

Everything was going well until T.A—the person who was used as an experiment, started behaving oddly.

His skin turned pale, and he stopped talking with anyone. Then one day, he attacked a fellow inmate and started eating his flesh.

Fortunately, the inmate was saved, and T.A was locked in a different room under strict monitoring.

However, the inmate who was bit by T.A, also started acting the same as T.A. He also bit the nurse who was taking care of him. And so, the chain started.

The entire research facility was infected with an unknown virus.

When the higher-ups found out about it, they researched the infected genes. They found out that the genes that were supposed to cooperate with the body genes and give them some sort of immunity; instead, the genes neutralized the body genes and took over the immune system.

Moreover, those genes were self-actualized. They had their own system.

As the times passed, the infected became mindless lumps of meat.

Of course, the government detained all the soldiers and locked them in an underground facility. They kept quiet about that incident and hid it from the world.

However, it wasn't long before the cat was out of the bag.

The infected started attacking each other and eating each other. But, a miracle occurred.

The infected who ate another infected were cured as the genes in their body neutralized the effect.

Furthermore, that person still retained his superpowers. So, the scientists and the government got a new idea. They started feeding the infected to each other, and sure enough, stronger superhumans were created.

However, something was strange. Those people never felt hungry or fatigued. Moreover, they had more superpowers than they had imagined.

Out of all the infected who recovered, there was one who couldn't recover.

It was the first human test subject— T.A. Instead, he evolved.

He gained the power to control the genes. He once again awakened the neutralized infected genes from the bodies of those who had recovered and once again made them mindless lumps of meat.

They spread all around the country and infected as many people as they could.

T.A, on the other hand, gained immortality and perfect tolerance against everything. He had become a perfect superhuman.

He traveled across the world and spread the infection to as many people as he could.

And thus occurred the major apocalypse.

Millions of infected roamed the world and spread the infection to the rest of the world.

Friends, family, nothing mattered. Everyone wanted to save their own skin.

The havoc ran amok for three years, and the world lost 30% of its population.

The world tried to fight back with nuclear power, but everything was useless against them.

Then one day, after three years, T.A disappeared along with all the infected, without leaving any trace. No one knew where he went, but everyone was still afraid.

After weeks of searching and confirming the world was safe, everything went back to normal.

It took two years for the people to get back to their daily life, but everything was fine now.

After reading the article, Rudy was left speechless. He couldn't comprehend that something like this had happened.

"So… I am not back in my world?" Rudy wondered.

"This didn't happen in my time, so that means… I am in some alternate reality or a parallel world?" Rudy asked himself.

"Wait… does that mean… everything is different in this world? Can it be that things won't go as they went in my previous life?"

After pondering for a while, Rudy uttered, "But I have superpowers now. So it doesn't matter."

Rudy accepted the reality as an adult rather than causing a tantrum over it.

Rudy let out a weary sigh and scrolled down the screen to see an article about the abandoned tunnel.

Without wasting his time, Rudy clicked on it to find out more about the haunted tunnel and the reason behind its story.
