Chapter 11: Investigating
After a while, the beautiful woman whispered: “Go get the video surveillance footage from that apartment, I want to watch the battle again”
The sunglasses man finally breathed a sigh of relief, but curiously asked: “It’s just a Master-level battle. What is there to watch?”
The woman was silent for a moment and answered: “That boy was a bit strange, I want to take another look”
The sunglasses man swiftly got the surveillance footage and started showing it from the beginning.
“Stop” the woman said
As the sunglasses man press the pause button, the image stops.
This was the last moment of the battle, the split second that Gu Qing Shan used his full spirit energy to infuse the arrow.
“Look” the woman narrowed her eyes, pointing at the arrowhead “The air is always sensitive, any force that makes contact with the air will make it react.”
The sunglasses man carefully looked, barely seeing on the arrowhead, two transparent ripples are formed on both sides.
He shook his head and said: “I’ve never seen such a thing before, is it another unknown super power?”
“Very interesting, although this power looks weak, it gives me a unique feeling” the beautiful woman stares at the screen “we have to find a way to get in touch with this poor student”
The long night finally ended.
Cheng Nan, a high-class residential district.
“You don’t want to avenge your companion?” Gu Qing Shan looked at the thug with a smile that’s not smiling.
Wang Ming the thug shook his head and said: “We were all people lured by the reward money, working together was temporary, before that I didn’t know any of them”
Wang Ming threw him a bunch of keys and said: “You spared my life, but the only thing I can do for you is give you a secret place like this to rest. After all, the Nie family is too powerful”
Gu Qing Shan took the keys, looked at the man in front of him unexpectedly and said: “Thank you for your kindness, then I will leave first”
Wang Ming was a bit confused, quickly asked: “Leave to go where?”
“To work?” Wang Ming couldn’t catch up with the conversation.
“Well, you have to work to earn money, to have food to eat, plus I heard there’s all sorts of things in university that require you to spend money” Gu Qing Shan seriously replied.
As a civilian without any backers, wanting to go to a State-sanctioned university, not only is the tuition very high, but they also require a certain amount of Merit.
Plus his elective major is Mech Study, whose tuition cost is several times that of other majors.
Gu Qing Shan have took on several jobs to make money, at the same time accumulated a large amount of personal Merit to prepare for future education necessities.
Wang Ming seriously wondered if his ears have gone bad and he actually heard wrong.
This boy in front of him, capable of killing 5 hitmen in one breath. Even a Martial Masters got completely manipulated into a trap and died, falling from the 22nd floor and turned into mush.
—- A person like that, still have to work an actual job to earn money to maintain their livelihood? (TN: as in, not sponsored or provided by anyone)
From what he said, he’s also about to enter college?
Wang Ming has lived for more than 30 years, but for the first time today, he feels that his common sense has been flipped on its head.
“I’ll accept the keys” Gu Qing Shan after taking the key and thought for a bit, said: “I’ll give you some advice, right now immediately flee from Chang Ning county, go all the way East to Fuxi Republic.”
“Why?” Wang Ming asked
“Last night’s incident must have already been known, I still have some protection from working at Su family’s company. Nie family already failed once, so they likely will not move against me again without absolute confidence. But you are different. You’re just a hitman that can’t show himself in public. If you don’t leave you could die at any time”
Gu Qing Shan continued: “You’re more suited to making friends and doing business, not this cold-blooded career of a hitman. If you stay here, even if you don’t get killed by Nie family, you will still one day be killed by someone else”
Wang Ming stood silent for a long while, then said: “Then I am leaving now, we’ll meet again if fate allows it”
Swift decision without any hesitation or back and forth, this person’s personality is not bad.
Gu Qing Shan nodded, silently complimented him and left the room.
Half an hour later, he arrived at a sky-high technology building.
Swiping his card as normal and entered the building, swiped again to enter the underground facilities.
After the iris certification and fingerprint authentication, changing into work clothes, he received his work ID card, headed into the elevator and went directly to the underground 50th floor.
As the elevator door opens, a familiar electronic sound is heard.
“Chang Ning Steel Mech R & D Department welcomes you, No. 41157.”
Gu Qing Shan swiftly walked in.
Across from him, there were several 5-meter-high Steel Mech armors, many people in overalls were busy working on the mechs and discussing between themselves.
This is the largest Mecha-based R&D center in Chang Ning, and the core industry of Chang Ning’s Su family. Even if they are Su family members, without expertise in this area, they will also be refused entry.
Gu Qing Shan looked at the cold fighting machines, feeling a sense of excitement in his heart.
This is the product of human civilization, the crystallization of science and technology born from the crossing of countless frontier sciences, and representing this world’s most powerful fighting force.
Shuttles and helicopters, in front of the War Mechs cast from steel are simply too dull to even look at.
These fantastic ice-cold machinery have an irresistible appeal to every man alive.
“No. 41157, application for research.” Gu Qing Shan said.
“Please describe the content of your work, so your Holo-brain can be registered”
“Power control of electro-hydraulic drive of No. 2 machine”
“No. 41157, your application has been approved, the time is six days, your accommodation room is 4009, please pay attention to eating on time, work and rest appropriately to ensure good health.”
“Thank you “Gu Qing Shan can finally relax
As expected, he can stay here for six days in a row. If the project is completed well enough, there will also be corresponding rewards.
This place is absolutely safe, unless Fuxi Republic suddenly comes to invade the Confederate, and the whole of Chang Ning County goes under siege.
Nie family’s hands could not reach even here.
Six days later is already the university entrance examination.
After finishing the exams, I can freely flee to wherever I want.
As for now, let’s fully concentrate on studying Mechs with absolute peace of mind!
Gu Qing Shan, almost leaping with his steps, couldn’t wait anymore and went straight to a mechanical armor.
In the past life, I’ve made quite a few good things too. In addition, humanity kept on advancing technology for more than 10 years, I also never stopped my research on Mechs. With so many years of constant study and research, my current expertise probably far exceeds this era.
The facilities here are so good, some previous research ideas can probably be verified.
Outside the Chang Ning Steel Mech Company, on top of another tall building.
The sunglasses man stood at the highest point, opened the communicator and reluctantly reported the matters concerning Gu Qing Shan.
“You mean, he’s also a serious Mech researcher?”
The cold female voice came from the communicator, accompanied by the sound of a tapping keyboard.
“Yes, your Highness, the security here is very strict. Even if I risk exposing my ability, I’m afraid I won’t be able to bring him out. Worst case we might even risk a war”
“That’s ok, come back, no need to go through so much trouble, we can use the formal method” the female voice said, contemplating.
“What do you mean by ‘the formal method’?”
The sunglasses man cautiously asked.
He can’t help being so careful. The last time she said that, the formal method used was to declare war. Thinking about what transpired afterwards at that time, the sunglasses man still shakes in fear.
“You can rest assured, I am going to declare an official visit, that way I won’t have to use a fake identity”
The sunglasses man was relieved, asked again: “What about our mission?”
“Taking some of the top talents from the Confederate, Your Highness.”
“That’s that we are doing”
Sunglasses man’s face shows disbelief and said: “This kid, can be regarded as top talent?”
On the other side of the communicator, the woman whose beauty knows no equal was quickly operating two virtual light screens as she answered: “I’ve calculated, his unknown ability increased the kinetic energy of the arrow by quite the amazing amount. In addition, you should take a look at the paper he published in the Federal Science and Technology Magazine regarding Mechs simulating human behavior.”
The woman stared at the information on the light screens, gently licking her lips, her face showed a hint of excitement, looking like a cat who was about to catch her favorite fish.
