Chapter 26: The Martial Saint has arrived
In the bar.
Princess Anna rubbed her eyes, then looked at the screen once again.
The Grandmaster’s body is still lying there on the ground.
“This can’t be…” her eyes showed disbelief.
The young man on the screen that have shocked her since the first meeting, right as he was walking outside to face the enemies, she was still thinking about how she would save him when he couldn’t handle it.
Who would’ve guessed, the results would be like this.
On Gu Qing Shan, there seemed to be a mysterious cloak, not letting her see through, yet at the same time attracts her so.
“Yes, this isn’t right at all, he’s improving too quickly, unless he was hiding his strength last time” Feng Huo De also commented.
He was busy operating the Holo-Brain, bringing the results of the evaluation out on the screen.
“Target’s current strength estimated to be Grandmaster rank, power unidentified, suspected to be God’s Chosen or Supernaturalist, details unknown”
“Loading target biological data…”
“Confirmed target haven’t used genetic modifier drugs”
“Conclusion: Gu Qing Shan, Male, 18 years old, estimated potential: S”
Feng Huo De looked on the screen, sighing: “18 years old with a Grandmaster rank strength, I really want to know what the God’s Chosen Skill on this monster of a person is”
Suddenly a communicator was ringing.
Anna turned it on, asking: “What happened?”
“Mole report, Bai Sha county Fighter Mech squadron on the way, 7 seconds later will arrive at the scene, 100km from here, Bai family Warships are gathering”
Anna shut down the communicator, stood up and said: “I’m going to go save him”
Feng Huo De hurriedly stopped her, saying: “Your Highness, you absolutely cannot show yourself right now, the Empire’s princess openly massacre people at the Confederate will be the most serious diplomatic scandal, it will lead to an all-out war!”
“I don’t care!”
Anna said as her hands clasped together, forming a pose of praying.
“God of Death! From the flames, I call upon —–“
Bah! Her clasped hands got knocked down by Feng Huo De.
“Your Highness, let me take him, you have to leave first” Feng Huo De said with a serious face.
“You can’t! Your Shadow God’s Chosen Skill’s evolution level is too low, you’re definitely unable to escape from their scanners”
The communicator once again rang.
Feng Huo De impatient, slapped the call button and shouted: “What!”
The voice from the communicator sounds scared beyond control: “Firebird report! Firebird report! The Confederate’s Martial Saint is coming”
“What!” Anna opened her eyes wide “where’s he coming from, why can’t I sense him”
“He’s coming from above! He’s coming from above!”
Gu Qing Shan draws an arrow, squints and evaluates the coming squadron of Mech Armors.
“091 Hawk-series Mobile Mech, decent fighting power” he pulled the bowstrings tight, “but the construction isn’t quite rational”
Lightly letting go, as the bow snaps back to normal the arrow was covered by a layer of visible spirit energy and flew.
A clank, the arrow slid across the armor of the Mech, flew off course and away from sight.
Gu Qing Shan quickly drew his bow, another shot.
The arrow shot into the Mech’s knee joint center, a hulking Mech forged from steel, took an arrow to the knee and keeled over.
Gu Qing Shan retreated a few steps, dodging the enemy’s small-sized ammunition system, once again drew another arrow and pulled his bow.
The arrow flew through the sky.
As a Mech raised its large main Arc cannon, the arrow flew into the muzzle, all the way to the back and ignited the explosive laser-type arc mortar.
The mortar’s power isn’t a joke, immediately the Mech’s upper half got blown off, crashed down and unable to move again.
“What the hell, is this really something bow and arrows can do?” Feng Huo De looked at the screen and gritted his teeth.
Anna was unblinkingly staring at the screen and said:” He shot at the 091 Hawk-series Mobile Mech’s hidden weak point, it was written on our intelligence research record”
“Probably a coincidence, how would he have known such an obscure thing?”
“Not a coincidence, I saw him aiming for it”
“Fuck, the Martial Saint is here!”
The two of them immediately stopped talking and even held their breaths.
Anna hands are clenched tight, staring at the screen worriedly.
Gu Qing Shan took aim, drawing his bow ready to fire again.
Suddenly, he felt something as he relaxed his aim and looked up at the sky.
A black shadow was coming from above.
Gu Qing Shan hurriedly retreated, hiding himself behind a high wall.
A huge booming sound on impact, a 10-meter crater was made on the large street intersection.
The Mechs cautiously stopped.
“The enemy’s arrows are too powerful, suspicion of being Supernaturalist, calling for reinforcements! Calling for reinforcements!” the commanding Mech quickly took the time to report.
A voice was heard from the crater.
“Seems like the situation isn’t too bad”
As he spoke, a figure jumped out from the crater.
It was a middle-aged man.
Thick brows, sharp eyes, tanned skin and a body that stood as straight as a javelin.
Dark green military uniform, black boots, on his shoulder, there was a sword and shield —–a sword and shield, the Rank of General.
Standing across from the Mech squadron that was ready for battle, he spoke: “I am Zhang Zong Yang”
All the Mechs suddenly stopped, the soldiers from inside the cockpits jumped out, raising their heads in salute.
“Military God sir!”
“Bai Sha county, 477th Special Force reporting sir!”
Zhang Zong Yang looked at the people across from and spoke: “As military men, who was it that told you to pilot Mech Armors, go on the busy streets to kill a person?”
The soldiers hesitated for a bit, as the leader responded: “It was the Bai Sha county’s Lord order, sir”
As the military force of Bai Sha county, they had the duty to work under the orders of the Bai Sha Lord.
“Dog shit aristocrats”
Zhang Zong Yang spoke with contempt, no longer disciplined the soldiers, turned around towards where Gu Qing Shan was hiding and shouted: “Gu Qing Shan, come out”
Gu Qing Shan thought for a bit, then came out.
Zhang Zong Yang looked at the young man, his face complicated: “The President wants to see you”
Rewinding time a few minutes ago.
The S.W. Divine Temple.
In the large room that Gu Qing Shan was in before.
On hundreds of screens, numbers and symbols are flowing, not stopping for even a second.
These screens are arranged into a sphere shape, surrounded by a specially designed Mobile Mech, analyzing each and every small detail of it.
The Mech stood still unmoving.
It’s not like regular Mechs, big and bulky, also unlike other specialized Mechs that carry a whole arsenal on him.
It looks much more streamlined and mobile.
The screens glowed a deep white on the Mech, looking almost like flowing water.
Suddenly the Mech’s head moved.
And then it moved again.
That’s right, the Mech at the moment is looking around the silent space.
—–just like a real living entity.
Suddenly, hundreds of screens all shut down at once.
Only the large screen closest to the Mech is still operating.
On it showed one word.
As the word faded, three more appeared
“Ahead of time”
Then, lines of text appeared
