Chapter 78 of 150 chapters

S.W. Divine Temple.

Footage from 12 surveillance cameras filled the entire screen.

On them, no matter what kind of weapon was used, there was still no damage done to the mountain of flesh.

Suddenly, one of the screen caught a certain scene———-

In a relatively clear area on the mountain of flesh, a Confederate soldier climbed out of the wreckage of an Assault Mech, used his last bit of strength to struck the outer wall of the mountain of flesh.


The fleshy wall was broken through, as a blue-colored blood flowed out from the small hole.

Immediately 20-odd tentacles all flew towards the soldier, skewering his body and crushed him to death.

This scene was quickly taken from the numerous attack footage, zoomed out to take up the entire screen.

On the screen, the soldier’s detailed information was shown.

“Zuo Yue, Martial Grandmaster, power: Martial Thaumaturgy: Piercing Fist”

“Confirmed Thaumaturgy power is able to damage the monster”

“In accordance to humanity’s system of power, testing other types of attacks”

As Gu Qing Shan saw that, he didn’t bother to look anymore.

Since Impartial Goddess had already found a clue, she’ll very quickly figure out the truth in the next few experiments.

Even though this monster is large, it’s still only one monster, when faced with endless attacks from a large amount of Professionists, it could only die.

The true problem to look out for is when the Apocalypse comes, the future when monsters become too numerous to deal with.

Gu Qing Shan suddenly felt a bit uneasy.

He can’t be sure that the events that happened in the past life will happen again this life.

If the next monster to appear is also different from what he knows, then what could that mean?

Gu Qing Shan frowned deeply.

But then he shook his head.

This change involves the world itself, how could he stop it alone? He can only deal with each step as they come.

“Impartial Goddess?”

“I’m here”

“Please send me back to the capital”


Gu Qing Shan quickly walked out, climbed onto the small-sized Spaceship, and began his re-entry into the atmosphere.

Not long after, Gu Qing Shan had already made it back to the capital.

Due to having the Spaceship, Gu Qing Shan no longer needed to run across the desert, simply dropped off on the highest floor of his hotel.

Walking back to his room, he opened the door and went in.

After a shower, Gu Qing Shan changed into some clean clothes, sat down leg-crossed on the bed.

There’s still a bit of time until the evening, he can use it to calm himself down a bit.

As he closed his eyes, a person suddenly appeared in his room.

He sat down on the sofa across from Gu Qing Shan, crossing one leg over the other.

“Who are you?” As soon as Gu Qing Shan noticed him, he had been cautious.

“I could potentially be a bystander” the man answered.

“A bystander of what?”

“A bystander that see you being murdered”

The man nonchalantly replied.

He donned a black suit, wearing black open finger gloves on both hands, his eyes shone bright while emitting a sense of sturdiness and power.

“The hitman isn’t here yet and you already are?” Gu Qing Shan asked

“I had my men slowed them down a bit ——-since you’re too interesting a person to just die like that, too wasteful” The man said.

“Let me introduce myself, I’m a part of the 9 Lords, Zhang family’s Zhang Ying Hao, in the underworld, I’m known as the president of the Hunter’s Association”

The Hunter’s Association is a hitman company, due to their unique assassination rules, as well as their extremely high success rate, they’re quite famous in the underworld.

Since he openly admitted both his status in the light and dark, either he has to be very confident that his backing is solid, or he has other implications.

Sure enough, Zhang Ying Hao continued: “My second uncle is the Martial Saint, Zhang Zong Yang”

As Gu Qing Shan heard that, he stood up, smiled and offered a handshake.

“Nice to meet you, I owe your second uncle, having shown up for me during my previous trouble” he said.

“Nothing to it” Zhang Ying Hao also stood up and took his hand.

As they were shaking hand, Zhang Ying Hao’s face slightly relaxed.

His reaction pleased Zhang Ying Hao, at least right now, this youth doesn’t seem to be the ungrateful type.

Zhang Ying Hao adjusted his attitude slightly, saying: “Gu Qing Shan, I’ve read all about your exploits, including the Mech that you built, through some special means, I’ve also seen bits and pieces of the technology”

“And so at this moment, I’m inviting you to join our Hunter’s Association, if you agree, I’ll guarantee your protection from any harm”

“I don’t need it” Gu Qing Shan refused him right away.

Zhang Ying Hao smiled, questioned him: “You’d refuse so quickly?”

Gu Qing Shan only smiled without replying.

“You should know, following me isn’t that bad, at least I’m very different compared to the two trashes from Nie family and Bai family,” Zhang Ying Hao continued.

“Then I’m all ears” Gu Qing Shan kept up his smile and spoke.

Since he received a favor from the Martial Saint from before, Gu Qing Shan didn’t want to make their relationship turn harsh.

Zhang Ying Hao took out a small box, offering a cigar in it to Gu Qing Shan.

“Thanks, but no thanks” Gu Qing Shan refused it.

Zhang Ying Hao shrugged and lit the cigar for himself.

“How do I say this, I personally put Aristocrats into two categories”

He took a long breath, puffed out a smoke before slowly continued to speak.

“Two categories?” Gu Qing Shan asked.

“Hm, the first kind, as they realize they’re privileged from birth, their ego is magnified endlessly, spends money like it’s nothing, uses their status to suppress others, tainting the reputation of Aristocrats as a whole, becoming the cancer of this whole country”

“How interesting, then the second kind?” Gu Qing Shan continued to ask.

“The second kind, are people like me, or more precisely, like my second uncle”

Zhang Ying Hao put down the cigar, sat straight up and spoke: “There’s no such thing as authority that lasts forever, no such thing as a society structure that’s permanently solid, you can only make yourself grow, become an unrivalled strong person. Only then can you under any circumstances, good or bad, lead humanity forward”

“We, are the true Aristocrats, even though the previous generations don’t really take kindly to that”

“Those are great words” Gu Qing Shan nodded in agreement, “But this only makes me feel a bit awkward, because I’m already used to being alone”

“Then, do you accept an investment?” Zhang Ying Hao fixed his collars a bit and sincerely asked: “I want to spend a bit on you”

“Invest? In me?” Gu Qing Shan was surprised.

“That’s right, invest, or more precisely, a gamble”

Zhang Ying Hao spoke clearly, without hiding anything.

This in turn made Gu Qing Shan like him even more.

“Then please continue” Gu Qing Shan signaled him to continue to speak.

“It’s a bit strange” Zhang Ying Hao shook his head and spoke: “Before I walked in that door, all I wanted to do was to watch; but as I saw you, I had a thought of taking you in; yet now, I have a different thought altogether”

“Your mind seems to change very quickly” Gu Qing Shan commented.

“Of course, this is a requirement for survival, I have to provide for the bunch of people following me, you know” Zhang Ying Hao casually admitted.

“Frankly speaking, there are many, many people that want you dead, but after I meet you, I can feel you’re not the kind that’ll just roll over and die, so I want to make a bet on you”

Gu Qing Shan laughed, but then said: “I can’t arbitrarily accept your bet you know, since making an investment means you want to make a profit”

“That’s fine, to show my sincerity, I think you’ll need this”

Zhang Ying Hao took out a small silver white box from his pocket.

“What is that?” Gu Qing Shan asked.

“Post-battle Nano machine cleaning robots” Zhang Ying Hao smirked: “For use after you kill someone, guaranteed not to leave a single trace, only a refreshing smell of lemon ——–of course if you don’t like lemons, there’s also 30 other smells to choose from, you can pick whichever you like”

“This way, no matter how many people you kill, there will never be any evidence to pin the crime on you

“Of course, if you don’t have the confidence to win against Bloody Club, I can also stop their hitman for a bit longer, if you want to run then run now” he said all at once.

Gu Qing Shan looked at him for a little bit, then suddenly asked: “Why do you want to help me delay the hitman? Simply because of an investment?”
