A sharp-eyed bodyguard even noticed as the right wing of the Mech lightly scrapped the ground.
A deep cut was silently made in the ground, glowing red before it slowly returned to black.
He silently took note.
Inside the Blazing Angel, Gu Qing Shan used his inner sight to check Su Xue Er’s body once to make sure there weren’t any wounds.
“Why did you come?” Su Xue Er had a look of joy in her eyes as she asked.
“I got the news that you might be in danger, so I came here” Gu Qing Shan casually replied.
“Uhm, there were two hitmen” Su Xue Er answered, “Thankfully some friends made it in time and dealt with them”
Gu Qing Shan understood as he heard, she almost died here.
The Blazing Angel’s wings suddenly spread and locked on the entire area.
“Comparing on-scene special characteristics”
“Search term changed, begin human cells collection”
“No cells found”
These friends that Su Xue Er speak of must either be very good at killing, or they simply are too strong.
“It’s good that you’re ok, right, who were the friends that saved you?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
Suddenly, Anna’s captivating beauty appeared in Su Xue Er’s mind.
Even though Anna had said before she left that the matter regarding Gu Qing Shan was a joke, Su Xue Er’s intuition still told her something was up. Yes, she owes Anna one and she’ll grateful, but she’s not letting him go just because of that.
Su Xue Er decided, then said: “——-um, what is this Mech———?”
Sure enough, Gu Qing Shan’s attention was diverted and spoke with pride: “This? This would be my birthday present for you”
He opened the cockpit and jumped down, then turned around and told the Mech: “Come, say hello to your master”
The Blazing Angel walked forward step by step, then kneeled down before Su Xue Er as it said: “Master Su Xue Er, nice to meet you, I am your guardian from now on, Blazing Angel”
Su Xue Er covered her mouth with both hands in surprise, then finally turned to look at Gu Qing Shan.
She muttered: “I see, no wonder you asked me what kind of Mech model I like”
As someone who grew up in an aristocratic family, her eyes aren’t just for show.
This Mobile Mech armor contains unrivaled beauty, its descent from before was incredibly smooth, as well as the fluid human-like movements.
It’s extremely difficult to achieve this.
If normal Mech operations also have no problems, then this would be this era’s cutting edge technology without a doubt.
Gu Qing Shan smiled, then spoke: “Why don’t you try climbing in?”
Su Xue Er excitedly nodded, then hesitated.
“Can I? I mean, I’ve never piloted combat-type Mechs before. Plus, I’m also wearing a dress”
“There’s nothing inside that will get caught on your clothes” Gu Qing Shan said, “And the AI is top-notch, plus the controls are not complicated, so you can use it without worry”
If Gu Qing Shan said that the controls aren’t complicated, then it must be very simple.
Su Xue Er was able to relax, then walked towards the Mech.
The Mech automatically extended its hand, lifted her up and softly put her inside the cockpit.
The sound of air escaped as the cabin pressurized, then the engine started to sound.
The Blazing Angel’s wings let out a blinding light.
With a large booming sound, the Mech shot into the air and turned into a small black dot.
You could almost hear a high-pitched scream from inside the Mech.
———-apparently he forgot to turn off the speaker system.
Gu Qing Shan smiled as he watched.
If only the Apocalypse wasn’t coming, he really wanted peaceful moments like this to stay.
You could hear the sound barrier breaking in the sky, then the Blazing Angel appeared again not long after, as its flying speed slowed down and began to perform a set of tactical movements.
This is the moment for any Mechs to show its true value.
All the people around busily doing their work couldn’t help it and stopped their hands to look up and watch this scene.
The Mech’s flight is still very stable.
But the movements it performed were quick, fluid and unbelievably flexible.
The way it switched from moving to stopping was the same as a human.
Su Xue Er even tried out a few moves from Su family’s close combat Style in the air.
The Blazing Angel’s movements were fierce and precise, almost seemed like it was a Martial Grandmaster.
Then she flew forward, breaking the sound barrier again in only 4 seconds.
All the spectators below gasped.
With this kind of speed and human-like movement, the Blazing Angel could even get into close combat and deal with enemy Mechs by hand during battles.
——-or shove its weapon into the enemy’s main engine and fire.
There hasn’t been a single Mech in history that could do this.
None of the people here are laymen, they’re all experts in one field or another, so they all have sufficient knowledge of Mechs.
Everyone’s actions unconsciously slowed down, even their discussions as they moved were kept very soft, as if afraid they’d interfere with the show in the sky.
But there’s one thing all the people here noticed.
Today is an important milestone in the history of Mobile Mech development, the day that marks the coming of the next era.
This day will be recorded into Confederate history books, and they were the people who witnessed this history.
After a whole 20 minutes, the Blazing Angel finally landed in front of Gu Qing Shan.
Su Xue Er was so excited that her face reddened, as she jumped down from the Mech, her voice rang: “It’s so good! This is the best birthday present in my whole life”
Gu Qing Shan smiled, then presented her with a small intricate ring.
“What is that?” Su Xue Er was so surprised she held her breath.
Oh no, oh no, is he going to propose to me right here?
Then do I accept his proposal or not?
He’s able to create a Mech that far surpasses first-rate like this, the family probably won’t decline him right?
And then, my power is already at 4th stage, I can already protect him a bit.
But then, what kind of wedding attire should I choose, the trend right now is white wedding dresses, but I like the traditional Chinese wedding dress more.
We’re both still in college, so how would we live together.
Wait a minute, I still haven’t accepted his proposal yet!
In that one moment, Su Xue Er was knocked dizzy by her own mind, her thoughts staggered everywhere.
“This ring is the Blazing Angel’s main control unit; the user manual is here”
Gu Qing Shan, who was completely clueless to what was going on in her mind, took out a slightly crumpled piece of paper and gave it to her.
Then he looked a bit at the paper, scratched his head shyly and said: “It was just a piece of paper I randomly grabbed to write the instructions, hope you don’t mind”
Su Xue Er opened her eyes wide, staring at him.
Then she breathed out, becoming alive again.
This guy, at such a crucial moment, he gave me a control unit…
“What’s the control unit for?”
She completely missed what Gu Qing Shan said and asked about it again.
“You press here” Gu Qing Shan directly showed her.
Then the Blazing Angel flew up into the sky and disappeared from sight.
“Hm? It’s gone?”
“Usually it will dock on an orbital station and will go down only when you call for it” Gu Qing Shan explained.
“Why does it need to be docked on an orbital station?” Su Xue Er asked curiously.
“For convenience, you can call it anywhere you want. Also, since today is the first time it’s launched, Impartial Goddess wanted to do a full check on it” Gu Qing Shan explained.
“It’s that good?”
As soon as Su Xue Er said that, she looked at the people around watching them, suddenly realized something and her face once again reddened.
“Right, we should go somewhere else, let’s sit down and chat.” she said.
“Let’s go, since today is my birthday, it’s my treat”
“Then I can only humbly accept”
The two of them walked out.
Then, the sound of occasional applause.
The applause grew bigger and bigger, finally become a standing ovation as the sound was like an unending tsunami waves.
Everyone smiled at Gu Qing Shan, using their all to applaud him.
A scientist who’s able to reach achievements that high would gain respect from anyone.
Because if they didn’t exist, then civilization wouldn’t advance.
Human society must absolutely praise such people.
Gu Qing Shan was a bit surprised, but still looked at the people and replied their smiles with his own.
Behind the campus, in a long armor-plated limousine.
Su family’s head, Su Xing Chao sat inside, silently watched everything, including when Gu Qing Shan and Su Xue Er left the scene.
There’s nothing but Su family’s trusted members here, so preparing a few surveillance cameras isn’t anything hard.
Su Xing Chao stayed silent for a bit, then ordered: “Make everyone sign a contract of absolute secrecy, and dispatch a 100-man group to protect my grand-daughter”
He smiled a bit, then said: “Get this footage to my son and daughter-in-law, tell them to watch it 100 times”
Then, Su Xing Chao turned on his personal Holo-Brain and connected to Impartial Goddess.
After a brief discussion with Impartial Goddess, the Holo-Brain once again shut off.
Su Xing Chao again went into silence.
Suddenly, his Holo-Brain lit up again.
A subordinate reported: “The young lady’s assassination was orchestrated by Nie family”
Su Xing Chao laughed coldly, ordered: “Do it, no need to fear anything, I want news on them within two hours”
“After they failed the assassination, all Nie family members have died”
“Hm? What happened?” Su Xing Chao raised his voice.
“Whoever did it was very thorough, we weren’t able to find any useful information” the subordinate reported.
Su Xing Chao closed his eyes and thought for a bit, hanging up the call.
Seems like today will be a busy day.
Shortly after, his personal Holo-Brain lit up again.
When Su Xing Chao looked at the name displayed on the Holo-Brain, he was a bit surprised.
It was one of the 9 Lords of the Confederate, Zhang family’s head, Zhang Xing Zhi.
Zhang Family is one of the few families with which he got along.
Not only because they have the Martial Saint, but also because their thinking is more open compared to others.
“Old Zhang, how rare it is for you to contact me yourself”
“Ahaha, nothing too big, nothing too big, when people are as old as you and I, whatever we do, we do for the sake of the children, do we not?”
These words seem to imply something, Su Xing Chao was a bit interested.
He continued: “You’re right, we have to care even if we don’t want to, someone even tried to harm my grand-daughter today, hah, people’s minds these days are all rotten”
“Let’s have some tea tonight, there’s a few things that can only be discussed face-to-face” the other party said.
“Fine” Su Xing Chao thought for a bit, then accepted.
After exchanging a bit more pleasantries, they both hung up.
Su Xing Chao’s mood seems to improve a little bit, as he muttered: “The Mech is already in Xue Er’s hands… seems like our Su family have a choice to make”
