Chapter 22: A reunion
Gu Qing Shan lowered his head, not saying anything.
Madame Su quietly looked at him and said: “Su Xue Er likes to make friends, we won’t say anything against that, but your kind of poor parasite, planning to confess, wanting to use Su Xue Er to climb up in the world, I’m very much against”
Gu Qing Shan raised his head, wanting to speak: “That was Zhang Ye—“
Madame Su cut his words short: “Zhang Ye’s matter was arranged by the Bai family, but so what? Bai family have been annoyed at your incessant attachment to Su Xue Er for far too long”
She started raising for voice: “Before, I wanted Su Xue Er to get the chance to meet all kinds of people, to see the many kinds of people in this world, but you, I’ve never seen as fit for her”
Gu Qing Shan once again: “Since becoming friends with Su Xue Er, I’ve not harmed her once”
Madame Su as if hearing something laughable, looked at Gu Qing Shan from head to toe.
Her eyes looking down on him like that made Gu Qing Shan very uncomfortable, but he held himself back from doing anything.
Madame Su spoke again: “Next week is my daughter’s birthday, Bai Hong Wu’s present for her is a personal-use island, valued at 80 milions Credits. And you? A pathetic Mech model?”
“You tapped our phone conversation?” for the first time, Gu Qing Shan squinted his eyes, but still tried to explain: “it isn’t a Mech model—-“
“Stop, no matter what tricks you use, no matter what you give her, it doesn’t matter” Madame Su once more cut short his words, her face full of contempt.
She stood up, looking at him from above.
“I forgot to tell you, my daughter had awakened a mutated elemental power, she’s a Wind Supernaturalist”
Gu Qing Shan suddenly lifts up his face, looking truly glad.
Metal – Wood – Water – Fire – Earth, these are the 5 primary elements, Wind – Lightning – Light – Dark – Sound, are mutated elements.
Wind element is very good, extraordinarily useful, a Supernatural power that many desires.
In the past life, Su Xue Er also awakened to her Wind element, but that was a matter of 2 years later.
This time, she was able to awaken it early, and that’s a good thing.
Because the Profession called Supernaturalist, the sooner they are awakened, the more potential they have towards the end.
Madame Su unhappily: “What are you so happy about? I’m warning you, from now on do not go near my daughter, do not contact her, a forever low-born commoner like you have to know their limits”
“This is my advice to you as the lady of Su family, as well as my last warning”
She doesn’t even want to look at Gu Qing Shan anymore, elegantly turning around, softly stepping out.
This small matter taken care of, she now have other things to worry about — after all, this is still a Su family party, as the lady of the house she have to host it.
“Madame Su, please wait a minute”
From behind her the voice of the brat spoke up.
Madame Su turned around, coldly looked at him.
Gu Qing Shan stood up and spoke with a sincere face: “I have to tell you one important thing”
Gu Qing Shan: “I do not attach myself to Su Xue Er, never have and still have no intention of climbing up using the Su family, we are friends as equals”
Madame Su feeling herself almost unable to contain her anger, loudly laughed and said: “Equal? I seriously doubt you even know what that word really mean you imbecile”
For tone became incredibly cold: “This place doesn’t welcome you, get out”
Gu Qing Shan blinked twice, then silently left the pavilion.
A while later, Madame Su let go of her clenched hands
“Go” her eyes contained a sense of coldness “Tell the Nie family and Bai family, Gu Qing Shan is about to leave the lake island”
“Also, I don’t care what they want to do, but it cannot happen near the lake island”
After her order, Madame Su’s mood finally lifted a bit
Looking up at the morning sky, she mumbled: “You still didn’t give up after all that, it’ll be too late to regret once you’re about to die”
The day was coming to an end.
As Gu Qing Shan went back to the slums, he suddenly found his apartment already sealed by the police.
Even though the matter of Xiong Hu’s death was concealed by Nie family, but a whole room on the 22th floor suddenly disappearing is still too eye-catching.
Gu Qing Shan just stood there for a bit.
He already lost his job at Chang Ning Steel Mech Technology R&D department, so it seems he no longer have anywhere to go.
Searching himself, the key given to him by the hitman Wang Ming is still there, so he turned around, about to go to that residential area.
As he walked past a secluded alleyway, Gu Qing Shan suddenly looked down at his shadow.
The shadow was waving to him, then escaped from his feet and ran towards a small alley.
“A God’s Chosen Skill…”
This type of strange ability, Gu Qing Shan can immediately tell.
Using this method to greet him is already very polite, even showing him what the ability is, seems like they bear no ill-will
No matter, taking a look won’t hurt.
Gu Qing Shan followed the shadow into the small alley, finally entered a bar at the street corner.
As he entered, the bar door closed behind him, on it a sign that says “Closed for business”
Soft and low music, a faint scent of cigarette in the air, dim lights.
On the bar, two people sat.
One of them a burly man with combed back hair, wearing sunglasses.
The other a beautiful, slender woman with blazing red hair just reaching her shoulder.
Both of them looked at Gu Qing Shan, wearing a friendly smile.
“Ah? It’s you” Gu Qing Shan spoke, surprised.
Hearing the unexpected words, the two people looked at each other, a bit confused.
“Ah, my bad, I just felt like I’ve met you somewhere before”
Gu Qing Shan covered up his slip of the tongue, face unchanged.
When they heard that, the two of them suddenly had a look of understanding.
The red-haired woman stood up, reaching her hand out and spoke generously: “Good evening, I am the eldest princess of St. Orlank Empire, Anna, you must’ve seen me from the news on TV”
Straight forward, saying whatever she wanted to say, seems like it’s the same familiar style that he knew.
Gu Qing Shan face lifted into a smile, extended his hand, accepting a quick handshake and then pulled back.
“Nice to meet you, I’m Gu Qing Shan”
As he remembers, she had a habit of liking to stay clean, always hated other people touching her directly.
Sure enough, Anna slightly raised her eyebrows in surprise, her smile becoming more sincere: “Student Gu, please take a seat”
Gu Qing Shan sat down directly opposite of them.
He glanced at her for a bit.
Who knew, after so many years, he would be able to meet her again, and this time in her youth.
Gu Qing Shan silently sighed.
St. Orlank Empire eldest princess, Anna Medici, the Thorned Rose of the Church, owner of the death flame, already awaken as a Fire Supernaturalist at birth, as well as her most famous title
—-Queen of the Apocalypse.
She was a miserable person who fought against fate, a beautiful soul that struggled in despair, only to perish in the end.
In his past life, when Gu Qing Shan was still in his early days in the other world, she was already a legendary character in both worlds.
Unintentionally, she happened to save Gu Qing Shan’s life once.
For her, it was an unconscious action that held no significance, but Gu Qing Shan have always remembered it deeply.
A few years later, when Gu Qing Shan had grown to become an existence that stands on the same footing as her, he came to return the favor: “I don’t have a habit of not repaying other people favors, if you ever need me to do anything for you, just say the words”
She only laughed lightly and answered: “Fine then, if you want to repay me, how about making me a good drink”
He then seriously went around, collecting the best cocktails’ secret recipes and alcohols of both worlds, trained until he was a master at the mixing bar, and finally when he was ready to find her again.
She had already faded away.
