This person called “Mr. Liao” is the scientist that invented warp technology 30 years ago.
He went mad trying to pressure the 9 Lords into making him the 10th, but after Impartial Goddess disarmed his bombs, he was caught and swiftly assassinated by the 9 Lords.
Yet the one that was killed was only a clone, while his actual person continued to live on for the next 30 years in space.
In the past life, right as the Apocalypse came, he actively attacked the Confederate ———by crashing a large-scale warp device into a space monster, then activated it and sent the monster straight to the Freedom Confederate.
This act of madness was his plan for revenge that he hatched for almost 30 years, making his existence became known again.
As Gu Qing Shan finished speaking, the other side went silent.
Then after a bit, he spoke up again: “And if I were to refuse, what would you do?”
Gu Qing Shan shrugged, saying: “I know you’ve placed a lot of warp traps, capable of displacing attacks”
“But did you know? That amount of preparations is pathetic compared to the might of the entire Confederate”
“And you can represent the Confederate?” the voice mocked.
“He can represent the Confederate” Impartial Goddess spoke.
“Impartial Goddess? The hell? You’re the President?” the voice spoke in surprise, “no, your voice is too young, the Confederate doesn’t allow for Presidents this young, but according to Impartial Goddess’ Logic, the only one able to represent the Confederate is the President”
“This is a contradiction”
The voice stopped, obviously thinking about it.
“That is to say, you are not the President, but you got the highest authority in the Confederate anyways?” He arrived at the correct answer.
“Exceptional!” the voice shouted excitedly: “I’ve also tried to do that before, but I was in so much of a hurry, and the pursuers were so hot on my tail that I couldn’t completely overwrite the 30 firewalls of Impartial Goddess”
“Well done, how did you do it?” his voice became more familiar and close.
“You don’t need to know that, we’re talking business right now” Gu Qing Shan said.
“Fine then, you want my warp technology, to deal with those damned Man Killer Fiends and sea monster, correct?”
“And firearms don’t work?”
“Looks like you’re really well caught up with the news”
“I need to ask one more thing, you’re not part of the 9 Lords?”
“What do you think?”
“You’re not, yeah, definitely not”
“Then, Mr. Liao, your answer?”
“I want to see a bit of sincerity first”
“My sincerity?” Gu Qing Shan smiled, then said: “I originally could’ve used chemical weapons to attack, eliminating all biological life on your small-sized space shuttle, and then go there to extract your research results”
“But I didn’t do that, instead I attempted communication with you first”
“Then you’re lucky that you didn’t” the voice spoke, “I’ve placed a biological sensor near my heart, as soon as my life signs cease, the entire space shuttle will blow up.
“Then another sincerity” Gu Qing Shan spoke again, “I know you’re about to stop a passing-by space monster, using your warp technology to send it directly to the Confederate”
“The fuck! How did you know?” the voice shouted.
“The news that you’re still alive, together with this, if they were to spread, how much longer do you think you’ll have to live?”
“Fine, fine, god damn, since you’ve been so open with me, I’ll give it to you, but under one condition”
“I want to return”
Gu Qing Shan was a bit stunned when he heard that.
This psychopath wants to return?
If the 9 Lords were to discover him, he would have no chance to run again.
The voice stopped for a bit, but couldn’t wait for Gu Qing Shan’s answer before speaking again, worriedly.
“You have the highest authority, you gotta help me here”
“Everything is inconvenient in this god damn outer space. I already ran out of contraceptives long ago, you really gotta help me return ———-the natural ecosystem of the ship is already at its limit supporting the population here”
As soon as he decided to, the voice started to go on and on.
“You’re still a brat so you probably can’t imagine just how much population I got up here, and how heavily pressured my life support and ecosystem up here is right now”
“God damnit, I want you to help me return, and I want some money, I want to go to the bar, have a good drink and hit on some young ladies!”
Gu Qing Shan was stunned for quite a while, then answered: “Give me all the warp technology expertise you have, then you can return”
“Very well, sent over an unmanned Military Warship ———-small-sized is not enough, it has to be at least mid-sized, there’s quite a few people here”
“I’ll arrange it now, Mr. Liao. Please be patient”
Gu Qing Shan hung up.
“There’s a problem” he said.
“Please go ahead, sir” Impartial Goddess’ voice seems to carry a hint of a smile.
“This guy is a mad scientist. Right now, he still has the delusion of ruling over the world, ruling over all the females of the world”
“Even the 9 Lords fear his expertise and his madness”
“Absolutely do not let him near any core technology, as soon as he returns, inject him with Nano-bombs, and give him a deep genetic modification to change his appearance”
“Give him a new name and life, from now on, he can only move where I can track him. Do not let his wives and kids contact anybody that they know, but you can provide them a well-off life”
Gu Qing Shan sighed, saying: “This guy is a complete ticking time bomb, if it weren’t to smooth over the current situation, I would not have tried to contact him”
He went out again, giving the officers and Professionists another day’s mission to collect monster corpses.
All of them answered positively.
After Gu Qing Shan left, Wang Yan looked at Zhang You Bang.
Zhang You Bang spoke in annoyance: “I really am blind to think that I could’ve beaten him”
“Sun Ming is also blind as fuck, not only does he not know that he nearly lost his life, he’s still indignant about it in the cell. I’m going to go kick his butt and tell him about what happened just now”
All the Professionists and officers exchanged looks.
Wang Yan shook his head, muttering: “I also only found out that Confederate scientists were that strong just now”
Gu Qing Shan returned to his lab.
Suddenly Impartial Goddess said: “The Martial Saint’s and the No.1 Man Killer Fiend’s battle has begun, would you like to observe it with satellite footage?”
“No need, we have more important things to do right now” Gu Qing Shan thought for a bit, then said: “Extract the current information we have on the Man Killer Fiends, categorize them by how dangerous they are”
“Understood, based on danger scale, the escaping Man Killer Fiend is considered the highest level”
“From collected intelligence, there are a total of 3 Man Killer Fiends that are close to him on the danger scale”
The screen showed some images.
A giant mountain of flesh was slowly moving about in a city.
Gu Qing Shan frowned, looking closer at the giant mountain of flesh.
On it, human corpses were piled up to make a sort of spiraling staircase upward.
The human corpses formed the steps, as the staircase led up to the top of the flesh mountain.
A really fat Man Killer Fiend sat on top of the mountain, using corpses to feed 2 Man Eater Fiends.
——-they were black Man Eater Fiends, considered elites in the ranks of Man Eater Fiends.
And they were the fat Man Killer Fiend’s “pets”.
On the entire mountain of flesh, these kinds of “pets” were everywhere.
“Sir, Man Eater Fiends have quite the noticeable variation, do you think Man Eater Fiends can also evolve?” Impartial Goddess asked.
“They won’t” Gu Qing Shan answered, “A Man Eater Fiend’s biological essence will not evolve, but they can grow stronger, similar to how a human can grow from being a baby to an adult ———-the better nutrients they get, the stronger they became”
“So it already has the consciousness to breed dogs…” Gu Qing Shan muttered, “next one”
The screen changed, showing a different area.
This was a city.
You could clearly see the city was getting rowdy as the Fiends gathered on the streets.
They all stood blankly in place, waiting for something.
10 Man Eater Fiends pulled a heavy horse cart over, wherever it passes by, the Man Killer Fiends on the way started prostrating in a frenzy.
On the horse cart was a large slab of meat.
The slab of meat had no limbs or facial features, but it still accurately extended blades of flesh, piercing all the prostrating Man Killer Fiends, pulling them to it.
All the Man Killer Fiends pulled into the horse cart combined with the slab of meat and disappeared without a trace.
During the entire process, not a single Man Killer Fiend resisted or screamed in agony.
The images stopped here.
“A highly-mutated Man Killer Fiend” Gu Qing Shan spoke, “this thing is very dangerous. If it gets to mature, it’ll be even harder to deal with than the other Man Killer Fiends”
“Would you like to see the 3rd Man Killer Fiend as well?” Impartial Goddess asked.
“Yes” Gu Qing Shan sighed.
In the past life, Man Killer Fiends appeared without any warning, without any knowledge or precaution, so humanity suffered immense casualties.
Man Killer Fiends evolve too quickly, and become too powerful.
If it weren’t for the fact that humanity could log into the game and quickly became stronger, able to barely catch up to the growth of Man Killer Fiends, they would’ve already been hunted to extinction by them.
This life, thanks to him informing Impartial Goddess about them so soon, the casualty isn’t quite as horrible as the past.
———-but this time, the game still hasn’t launched yet, the situation is still very dire, and it will only get worse from here on.
Humanity’s destiny looks so shaky, just where is the path to our salvation?
Gu Qing Shan silently thought.
The screen changed again.
On it is a skeleton with scraps of rotting meat stuck to it, slowly staggering forward along an empty field.
Its body let out a thin veil of mist, wherever it passes through becomes dead land that grass can’t even grow on.
“This was the one that fought the No.1 Man Killer Fiend and was able to escape after being wounded” Impartial Goddess told him.
Looking at the yellow mist flowing from its body, Gu Qing Shan commented: “This is a plague”
“That is correct, the virus on its body is constantly evolving. Yesterday, at 7:38 PM, all of current humanity’s medical knowledge has proven unable to do anything to the virus on it”
“Dispatched Professionists are also unable to get close to it, anyone within a 30m radius will catch the virus and die”
“Has the generals been dispatched?”
“Because we have no method to save them should anything unexpected happen, the 3 Generals has not been dispatched”
“Bai Sha county has suffered the most casualties in the entire Freedom Confederate, because 2 of the 4 strongest Man Killer Fiends are here”
“77.91825% of humans in Bai Sha county were killed by this Man Killer Fiend’s plague virus”
“Addendum: From battle records, only the No.1 Man Killer Fiend has shown to have immunity to its virus”
Gu Qing Shan listened, then asked: “Aside from where these 3 Man Killer Fiends are, what is the situation of the other counties?”
“The situation is currently under control, Mobile Mechs has been dispatched appropriately, so the number of people rescued are steadily increasing, both the army and hired Professionists are handling the aftermath of the rescue”
“What about other countries?”
“Thanks to your early cautions, I have spread the information to all other countries, allowing them to fully take control of the situation. There have been no signs of total outbreak anywhere”
“In addition, the countries have all unanimously requested help from the Confederate, so that I may help them analyze the best measure for each country”
Gu Qing Shan rubbed his temples, wryly smiling: “Finally, some good news”
