Gu Qing Shan’s attention was suddenly directed at a certain flying figure.
It was a female, the whites of her eyes replaced with a deep red, while all the flesh in her arms has disappeared, replaced with sharp, white bones.
The girl was in a frenzy, killing everything that she could see, while occasionally screaming in joy.
“Kill them, kill them all! This feeling is so wonderful, nothing can ever compare to it!”
As she waved her arms, the sharp bones on it were like blades, slicing not only the normal people running away, but also the Man Eater Fiends pursuing them into slabs of meat.
Whenever the bone blades draw blood, the smile on her face became wider and wider, until finally even her hair was floating without any wind blowing it. Like a drug addict getting the greatest high of their lives.
A blood-colored glow concentrated on her body, like it was actually solid.
Gu Qing Shan’s eyes contracted.
Awakening to an ability this soon, this Man Killer Fiend must have been a Professionist before they contracted the virus.
After a Professionist gets infected and become a Man Killer Fiend, all their Profession abilities will disappear, instead gaining abilities one step stronger than what they had.
Such a miraculous jump in ability, if it weren’t for their characteristics of being mindless killing machines, numerous Professionist will gladly contract the virus themselves.
This girl had reawakened her abilities within such a short time span, she would be considered an elite even among Man Killer Fiends.
Leave her alone for a bit longer and she’ll definitely become a top-level Man Killer Fiend.
Gu Qing Shan raised the Night Rain, shooting an arrow.
The female’s head popped like a balloon.
The headless body lightly shook in the cloud of blood just formed, before finally dropping down to the ground, no longer moving.
Gu Qing Shan lowered his bow, sighing.
From afar, the sound of Mobile Mechs fighting could be heard, mixed with the screams of people calling for help.
Occasionally, they would see squads of troops quickly moving on the street.
They would always stop a little bit to take a look at the burnt area where Gu Qing Shan and Anna was, then quickly left.
“Hm, they’re very strong, not in danger”
As soon as they made the decision, they quickly left.
Usually on the battlefield, the majority of soldiers are driving Mechs, so it’s very rare to actually see normal soldiers.
If a soldier isn’t riding a Mech, and isn’t on an Interstellar Warship, yet they still appear on the battlefield, then they must be a Professionists.
In order words, the Confederate’s Elite Military has finally started to move.
At this time, a small-sized Warship suddenly appeared in the air.
The Warship quickly landed where Gu Qing Shan was.
As the Warship cabin opened, a group of soldiers lined up in front of Gu Qing Shan, salute and said: “Highest directives, please come with us to the evacuation zone”
“Come on, let’s go and see the situation” Gu Qing Shan winked at Anna.
Anna nodded, entering the Warship together with Gu Qing Shan.
A peaceful, normal world was thrusted into chaos so suddenly that many are still in disbelief, even the Holy Empire was facing the same situation.
She also wanted to know just how severe the situation is.
There’s also another matter that she’s worried about. She has to quickly find a safe place to be sure of the truth.
The 3 Armies’ headquarters.
Looking at the map on the screen, Anna found that matters were much worse than she had thought.
On the world map, the green dots that represent safety were quickly disappearing, quickly being replaced by the hostile red dots.
“What is that?” She pointed at a certain black dot on the map.
The black dot was moving slowly on the map, apparently heading towards the Freedom Confederate’s direction.
On the screen a blurry figure was shown.
A storm was raging as droplets of water so fine it looked like sand filled the screen.
This was footage obviously taken from an extremely hostile environment.
The footage couldn’t show exactly what the figure was.
But it did have a description next to it.
“Giant Sea Beast, 15-meter tall. Purpose: Unknown. Ability: Unknown. Movement: Heading towards Freedom Confederate East Sea, estimated time of arrival is half a day”
So it was a monster, Anna was shocked, looking back at the sea map.
On it, she saw 7-8 similar black dots moving about.
They were each heading towards one country or another.
“What the actual fuck, what is going on?” Feng Huo De was extremely confused.
“I don’t know, but one thing is for sure, there’s chaos everywhere” Anna replied.
Gu Qing Shan appeared at the door.
“How is it?” Anna asked.
“The President and the senate are still in meeting, seems like they’re going at it quite firmly” Gu Qing Shan said.
“What kind of problems would they possibly need to discuss at this point in time?” Anna was a bit confused about that.
“Can’t help it, the subject they’re discussing is quite sensitive, the aftereffects might be a bit harsh”
“What subject is what?”
“The decentralization of Mech usage right”
Anna was surprised and stayed silent for a while: “No wonder there’s dispute”
In the current era, Mech technology’s autonomy is already very high, even regular citizens don’t need much training to use them. As long as they can give the command, the Mechs themselves can automatically carry out quite a few simple sets of predetermined actions.
If everyone and anyone has the right to use Mobile Mechs, then even aristocrats wouldn’t dare to carry on as they always have been and do as they please.
“You can rest here for a bit, I need to make a call” Gu Qing Shan said, then closed the door and walked away.
“Your Highness, our escort mission is basically over now, so can we leave?” Feng Huo De asked.
Anna suddenly realized that really is the case, then muttered to herself: “Father once told me to never stand too close to the Pope”
“Yet today, he was standing in the same place as her”
“Furthermore, Father has never used those eyes to look at me before”
As Feng Huo De listened to her, he felt a cold sweat forming on his back.
“That’s —–“ he opened his mouth.
Anna put one finger in front of her lips, signaling silence.
Then she took out her personally communicator, try to hold back her tears as she typed a message: “Father, do you remember what present I gave you last year? What color was it?”
After a bit of hesitation, she sent it out.
After what seems to be an eternity later, a reply came.
Feng Huo De carefully looked at Anna’s expression, asking: “Was it red?”
“It was red”
Anna nodded blankly.
Feng Huo De breathed out in relief.
But Anna continued: “I made an agreement with Father, if I ever ask this question, if he’s fine, then he won’t reply”
“If he ever does, that means he’s no longer of this world”
Tears drips down Anna’s beautiful face.
“Father is already gone”
She bit her lip, letting the streams of tears flow down her cheeks, meeting at her chin before dropping to the ground.
On the other side.
Gu Qing Shan shut himself inside a small room.
“Impartial Goddess” he called out.
“I am here” Impartial Goddess’ voice sounded.
“What are you hesitating about?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
“Without authorization, I cannot decentralize the usage of Mechs” Impartial Goddess said.
“Didn’t the President already give his authorization?”
“The President’s authorization must also be agreed with by 2/3 of the senate to become a bill that can be enforced”
“How long have they been discussing for?”
“In accordance with Gu Qing Shan’s authority level, the information he could know are as follows: 10 senates representing the 9 Lords has banded together, each one taking turns to make a speech against the bill, thus elongating the passing process”
“On the other hand, they have convinced 5 out of the 13 other senates to agree with them, while also working on convincing more”
“In other words” Gu Qing Shan stopped her there, “the bill will basically have no chance to be passed?”
“Current chance of passing is 7.16925%”
Gu Qing Shan blinked, contemplated and spoke: “What technology is currently used in the Mechs?”
“All of them operate on your Life Structure Algorithm sir, but only myself use the core protocols”
Gu Qing Shan nodded in satisfaction.
He stopped for a bit, seeming to think hard about something.
Time slowly passed.
His hands couldn’t help but twitch, almost like he wanted to take something out of thin air.
Realizing his instinctive reaction, Gu Qing Shan smiled deprecatingly, then put his hands on this knees, rubbing them flat.
