Chapter 81

Chapter 81 of 150 chapters

In a café.

The space silent and elegant, the air was relaxed.

“This Mech probably cost you quite a bit of money right? I’ll pay you back” Su Xue Er said as she took out her personal Holo-Brain, about to transfer him the money

Gu Qing Shan stopped her.

“No need, I used my Merit to request Impartial Goddess to help build it, after it was built, Impartial Goddess already reward me a large amount of Merit”

Su Xue Er breathed out lightly, assured.

Then she began to chat.

“Why does the Blazing Angel have two wings of light?”

“It’s a form of application for solidified energy” Gu Qing Shan explained shortly: “Radar, light-based weapons, sonar detector, air sensors and all sorts of things are installed there”

Seeing Su Xue Er’s blank face, he caps things off with: “Of course, mainly it’s to put the finishing touches on the Angel appearance ——–do you think it looks good?”

“Very good!”

Su Xue Er smiled, at least she can understand this.

“Right, since when did you know Princess Anna?” Su Xue Er suddenly asked.

Just like that, the leap in subject was a bit sudden.

“A few days ago, I met her at a bar, after a few drinks we got to know each other” Gu Qing Shan said.

Su Xue Er lifted her face and pouted: “Hmph, drinking alcohol right? I’m now 18 years old too”

“That’s right, then let’s go, I’ll treat you to some drinks”

Su Xue Er’s mood improved immediately, saying: “I still have to wait for a few of my classmates, we’ll go together”

She explained: “When they knew about my birthday, everyone all insisted that I had to treat them, they insisted for so long that it’s hard to refuse now”

“That’s fine, invite your friends as well” Gu Qing Shan said.

He thought for a bit, then took out his person Holo-Brain and exchanged for some credits.

On the black market, the Merit to credit exchange ratio is 1 Merit for 10,000 credits.

While if you exchange directly in the Confederate public system, it’ll be 1 Merit for 8,000 credits which quite a bit less.

But since Gu Qing Shan have so much Merit, he doesn’t want to have to spend the time and effort to exchange on the black market, not to mention, with how much Merit he has, he doesn’t really need to care about the difference.

“The credits from that time at the archery range, plus another 80,000 is probably enough”

He thought to himself as he operated the Holo-Brain.

Meanwhile, Su Xue Er was silently sitting across from him, thinking about something.

“What is it?”

Gu Qing Shan found that her expression is a bit strange, so he asked softly.

Su Xue Er answered: “It’s nothing, I’m just thinking a bit, Qing Shan ge, right now how strong are you exactly?”

From Princess Anna’s few and detached words, Gu Qing Shan seemed to be very strong, but I don’t know exactly how strong he is at all.

“My strength? That’s a bit hard to say exactly” Gu Qing Shan frowned.

At the moment, Gu Qing Shan is a qi training peak stage 7 cultivator, he only needs to unlock the Thaumaturgy from the Quest reward and then he can attempt to breakthrough to Foundation Establishment.

But the strength scale in the cultivation world and this world is a bit different, if he were to purely convert the power, he should be about Martial Grandmaster level.

But Gu Qing Shan is a sword cultivator, and sword cultivators’ fighting strength are much higher compared to normal cultivators, killing someone whose cultivation is higher than your own is a frequent occurrence.

Not to mention he also has a Secret Art, as well as the vast experience from fighting in many wars from the past life.

So it’s not easy to say correctly.

Gu Qing Shan thought for a bit, then answered: “Under normal circumstances, I should be about Grandmaster level”

Su Xue Er hesitated over and over, finally spoke: “Can you take a guess of what my current strength is?”

She was a bit nervous, but since she already decided, she’ll face this matter head one.

Hopefully I won’t be putting too much pressure on him.

Originally, the difference in their status is already nearly insurmountable, but now that she’s stronger than him, she was afraid he might not feel too good about it.

Since men are a prideful species.

If a girl is stronger than a man, and they were in a relationship, there might be a lot of problems.

But, but, Anna is also very strong, her status is also high, yet they still seem to be quite close.

Su Xue Er wasn’t confident that she could also do that.

“I heard that you’ve awaken a Wind-element root, what stage are you at now?” Gu Qing Shan casually asked.

“My Wind-element has awoken to its 4th stage, Hurricane Storm” Su Xue Er spoke softly.

Hurricane Storm was already higher than the average fighting power of this world, to be precise, it’s 2 levels higher than Grandmaster.

The two of them silently looked at each other.

“In our family’s history, there was a total of 7 Supernaturalist that reached 4th stage, and I’m the 8th”

“Since I’ve just broken through, my power level isn’t quite stable, and my family is very serious about this” Su Xue Er continued: “After today, I’ll have to temporarily stop going to university and return to my family to focus on training again”

Silence again.

He was still not saying anything.

Su Xue Er felt her heart beat faster and faster, as if someone was squeezing her neck, even breathing was becoming hard.

She slowly lowered her head.

I’m the eldest daughter of an Aristocratic family, he’s an orphan.

I’m a 4th stage Supernaturalist, while he still has a way to go to reach where I am.

From today onwards, I’ll be at Chang Ning county, while he’s staying at the capital.

Would our relationship have to be severed by these things?

But if I’m too weak, I’ll have no way to protect him!

A hard to describe sense of bitterness filled her mind, as Su Xue Er bit her lips tight.

She was about to give him a smile, change the subject and continued their conversion.

Suddenly, a big, warm hand came down from above and lightly rubbed her head.

“That’s a good thing” A calming male voice could be heard.

He continued: “To get so far, you must’ve been through a lot huh”


Su Xue Er felt like she heard her heart beat loudly, then stopped.

All her hard work, all her pressure, was turned into the wind as it scattered away.

The warm hand didn’t stay long and quickly returned.

But this feeling of warmth kept staying inside Su Xue Er for a very, very long time.

She gave a smile from the bottom of her heart, and quickly replied: “It’s a lot alright, but all of it is to give myself a better position to speak from in the family, as well as to make myself stronger”

Gu Qing Shan listened, and spoke as he smiled: “Then keep trying your best, if one day, you can break through the 5th stage, I’ll have to count on you to hire me”

He doesn’t mind, he really doesn’t mind it, Su Xue Er thought to herself.

At this moment, she doesn’t have any words to express just how happy she was feeling.

“Good, then it’s a promise!”

As Su Xue Er said that, she didn’t know why but felt like she wanted to hold his hand.

It was when she had already extended her hand half-way that she realized.

No, what am I doing!

Su Xue Er bit her lip again as her hand stopped in midair, unable to continue forward or retract.

Then, the big warm hand reached out to her.

And shook her hand.

A while later, Su Xue Er’s two classmates finally arrived.

They were two very cute female students, the taller one of the two was very open and actively greeted Gu Qing Shan.

“Ah ha, so you’re Su Xue Er’s man huh, indeed you do look like a genius”

Su Xue Er hit her lightly on the shoulder to hide her embarrassment: “He’s just an old classmate”

“Hello, I’m Gu Qing Shan, Su Xue Er’s classmate from high school” Gu Qing Shan smiled and introduced himself.

“I’m Lee Tong, nice to meet you” the taller girl said.

The other female student was busy evaluating Gu Qing Shan, only now did she speak: “Hi, I’m Sun Cai Yun”

Gu Qing Shan nodded and said: “Let’s go then, since today is Su Xue Er’s birthday, let’s find a decent restaurant bar to celebrate it”
