The handsome buffed man stepped out, extending his hand: “I’m this Professionist squad’s caption, Zhao You Bang”

Gu Qing Shan shook his hand: “Nice to meet you, I’m Gu Qing Shan, I heard that this place has the strongest known Man Killer Fiend, so I came here first”

A stifled laugh came from behind.

“Sun Ming!” Zhao You Bang sternly glared at the thin man behind.

“It’s nothing, no need to pay attention to me, I just felt like he’s speaking as if he’s here to deal with the Man Killer Fiends” the voice behind said.

“Scientist, haha” Sun Ming stifled his voice, but still laughing.

An angry look surfaced the officer’s face.

Zhang You Bang didn’t pay any attention to the officer, only made a helpless look to Gu Qing Shan and explained: “He’s a 4th stage 5-Elementalist, so he’s used to being lax, even I can’t do anything about that”

A 4th stage 5-Elementalist is already considered a top fighter, so even if their personality isn’t the best, no one can really say anything about it.

Gu Qing Shan of course knows that many Professionists have their own pride, so he doesn’t mind it, smiling to smooth it over, about to get to work.

Suddenly, Sun Ming hurriedly took out his Holo-Brain.

His Holo-Brain lit up on his own and began to speak.

“Confederate citizen, Elementalist Sun Ming. Greetings, do you perhaps have any internal displeasure or unwillingness to participate in this mission?” Impartial Goddess’ voice was heard from his Holo-Brain.

Sun Ming opened his eyes wide, finally muttered: “I have nothing against the mission, just that he’s such a young white meat, so what does he know? Must be some kid from an aristocratic house, put in the frontline to brush a little gold on his face”

“That is not the case, sir Gu Qing Shan is the current top Mech scientist of the Confederate. As well as the first biologist to notice and discover the Man Killer and Man Eater viruses’ characteristics” Impartial Goddess replied to him.

Everyone there opened their mouths in surprise, looking at Gu Qing Shan.

Gu Qing Shan sighed, saying: “Don’t scare him like that, we’re all here for work”

Impartial Goddess still didn’t let it go: “Because Professionist Sun Ming holds sir Gu Qing Shan in contempt, I surmise this will adversely affect his work afterwards. Rescinding Sun Ming’s mission participation rights”

“Oi, what the hell, you can’t do this!” Sun Ming really panicked.

This time’s mission reward is extremely good, a direct 1 million Credit reward, as well as 3 million Merit.

Even the squad captain Zhao You Bang has never seen another mission that would reward more Merit than Credit like this one.

All people in this squad are considered first-rate Professionists, otherwise they would’ve have been summoned by Impartial Goddess.

And of course everyone here will be rewarded individually for this mission.

“A change in plan, Army Colonel, Martial Eminence Wang Yan shall fill the hole in the squad. The corresponding dispatch order will be updated later” the Holo-Brain turned off after Impartial Goddess declared so.

The officer’s face showed a clear smile.

Sun Ming stared at Gu Qing Shan for a while, then turned to leave.

But half-way through, he really couldn’t swallow this treatment, so he turned around and did a throat-slitting motion with his thumb.

This threatening motion directly lead to the worst possible outcome.

Sun Ming was caught by both the soldiers that were standing next to him.

“The fuc——Gah!” he was just about to curse, but it turned into a cry of pain.

A solid strike as hard as steel struck him, breaking one arm.

A straight kick to his stomach made him grovel on the ground.

Colonel Wang Yan planted his foot firmly on Sun Ming’s back, showing an extremely pleased expression.

Being a straight forward Martial Eminence, he’s long been annoyed with the arrogant Sun Ming.

“What are you doing, do you mean to start a fight with us?” Zhao You Bang quickly stepped out, shouting.

Seeing Zhao You Bang about to burst, Wang Yan lightly said: “Emergency war-time directive, any interference will be dealt with the same way”

Zhang You Bang immediately cooled his head.

He looked back at the other soldiers.

10 Martial Eminences belonging to the military SWAT team stood up, all of them had their Holo-Brain in hand.

Obviously they also received the same directives.

Zhang You Bang felt a chill down his back.

“Can I see the directive?” He curtly asked.

Wang Yan pressed on his Holo-Brain.

A screen showed up.

“From Sun Ming’s motion of throat slitting, concluded he held killing intent towards sir Gu Qing Shan. Conclusion by Impartial Goddess: To protect a pivotal research from being interrupted, for the continuation of humanity’s civilization, Sun Ming is to be arrested on the spot”

Nope, Zhang You Bang immediately let it go.

He’s also a smart person, otherwise he would not be a squad’s captain.

Sun Ming has been much too arrogant for too long, annoying too many people, if he dies then he dies.

You can go ahead and die if you want, just don’t pull me down with you.

As a leader, Zhang You Bang can’t help but speak up for his members, that’s why he stepped out earlier. But when facing such a situation, of course he would preserve his own interest first.

Impartial Goddess’ voice was heard once again: “Let us begin, increasing mission personnel”

“Army Colonel, Martial Eminence Zhang Fang”


“Army Colonel, Martial Eminence Li Fei”


Two cold-faced soldiers stepped out.

“You two shall join the existing team, do as sir Gu Qing Shan’s orders and complete the mission”


The two Martial Eminence accepted with a loud and clear voice, not to mention a bright smile.

This mission will have a positive effect on their future promotion.

Not to mention, as people in the Military, they know very well just who Gu Qing Shan is.

“Ah? Why did it have to be like this” Gu Qing Shan laughed wryly.

“Impartial Goddess, no need to be so tense, it’s only a small mission” he said, with a slight persuading tone.

A small mission?

They carefully recalled the mission description.

There was only one requirement of the mission, that is to follow Gu Qing Shan’s orders.

“I’m only following proper war-time discipline procedures”

Impartial Goddess only left that as an explanation and the Holo-Brains turned off.

“Very well, we’ve wasted enough time already, let’s go” Gu Qing Shan clapped his hand.

After determining the directions, he pointed North, saying: “We will move out in that direction, details shall be explained on the way”

“Yes sir, we’ll follow your orders” the three military officers said at the same time.

The Professionists exchanged looks, then also mumbled as they agreed.

The group went out of the HQ, going straight.

A while later, they arrived at a square.

Gu Qing Shan took out his Holo-Brain, turned the volume all the way up and placed it on the ground.

A smashing rock and roll song started to play, breaking the silence of the square.

“You are——-“ Colonel Wang Yan asked

“Man Eater Fiends are lured by sound and smell; and Man Killer Fiends are even more sensitive to sound” he explained.

As soon as he finished speaking, a few Man Eater Fiends walked out, staggering.

They very quickly discovered the group, screaming and roaring as they rushed here.

Gu Qing Shan scanned around, saying: “Kill them”

As Professionists, dealing with a few Man Eater Fiends really isn’t any trouble, in just a few seconds, the fighting is already over.

“What now?” after snapping a Man Eater Fiend’s neck, Zhao You Bang turned around and asked.

Gu Qing Shan smiled, saying: “We continue”

That entire morning, Man Eater Fiends keep getting lured over, as the Professionists fought them nonstop for 4 hours straight.

Man Eater Fiend corpses filled the entire square.

Looking at the time, Gu Qing Shan said: “That’s it for the morning, let’s go back and get lunch”

“We’ll continue in the afternoon?” Colonel Wang Yan asked.

“Hm, we will”

After returning to the HQ, they all silently had lunch, rested for a bit, then went out again.

Gu Qing Shan once again put on a loud song to attract the monsters.

The square once again entered termination mode.

They weren’t sure why, but the amount of Man Eater Fiends has clearly increased compared to the morning.

The deeper they went into the afternoon, more and more Man Eater Fiends flooded the square, greatly increasing the Professionists’ pressure.

Gu Qing Shan still only stood there, silently watching them kill the monsters.

When twilight came, the amount of Man Eater Fiends reached its peak.

A single Professionist has to deal with a couple dozen Man Eater Fiends, some of them were well past their limits.

“This can’t go on, too many” Wang Yan said.

Gu Qing Shan looked at the falling night sky, nodded and said: “Very well, prepare to go back ——–ah?”

His tone suddenly raised as he looked at a certain direction.

Following his sight, they clearly saw a Man Eater Fiend that’s completel red.

It’s special enough to stand out amongst all the Man Eater Fiends.

As soon as it appeared, all the other Man Eater Fiends parted to make way for it.

Who would’ve thought, they couldn’t attract the Man Killer Fiend that made its base in this area, but got an unexpected harvest instead.

“Very good, that’s the target” Gu Qing Shan pointed at it for them to see.

“We can’t, that’s too far away and there are too many monsters” Zhang You Bang loudly shouted.

Wang Yan also nodded, there’s at least a few hundred if not a thousand Man Eater Fiend in that direction, if they go over, there would definitely be sacrifice.

Wang Yan hesitated a bit, then suggested: “How about we call in reinforcement?”

“Reinforcement?” Gu Qing Shan’s face showed confusion.

And then, he suddenly realized something: “Ah, no need, you just protect yourselves”

Saying so, a bow suddenly appeared in Gu Qing Shan’s hand.

Knocking the arrow, pulling the string, and let go.

The red Man Eater Fiend suddenly screamed in frenzy.

Right after, the bow let out several sounds as arrows are shot consecutively, turning into cold killer streaks of shadows, directly hitting the red Man Eater Fiend, as its frenzy scream began to die down and disappear.

On the War God UI, a notification appeared.

“Killed Elite Man Eater Fiend, Experience——-“

Then it changed.

“Detecting user to have chosen using Soul Points, currently power storage method changed to Soul Points”

“Recalculating battle rewards”

“Killed Elite Man Eater Fiend, Soul Points+2”

“Current Soul Points: 2/20”

Elite Man Eater Fiends aren’t very high-leveled so they only give 2 Soul Points.

But this isn’t important.

What’s important is that the War God UI he used in the cultivation world had no problems, but it had to adjust something just now.

Did the game launch already?

Gu Qing Shan’s heart starts beating quicker.

Almost trembling, he ordered the War God UI: “No conditions attached, begin searching for players”


“Search completed, no players found”

“Current number of online players: 0”

Monsters has already appeared in Reality already, why isn’t the game launched yet?

The game will launch about half a year from now in the previous life.

But this life is clearly different, monsters were already running rampant, do they really have to wait another half a year for it?

Can humanity even survive long enough to wait for it?

They can’t just sit there and wait, that will just leave to Reality falling and being destroyed.

Just what should he do…

Gu Qing Shan frowned, carefully contemplating this.

On the square, the fearless unending horde of Man Eater Fiends were rushing in more and more, as both the officers and Professionist squad were working together to kill as many monsters as possible.

While Gu Qing Shan held the Night Rain in hand, silently standing from afar, making for a very incompatible scene.

The setting sun shone on him, giving him an extremely long, lonely shadow.
