Chapter 6: Frankly speaking
Gu Qing Shan looks around.
Right now is the official prom night for the graduating high school class, all the school officials are here, as well as quite a few big shots from several organization.
Not few of them have already started noticing what’s going on here.
In a public place like this, I shouldn’t be too conspicuous, better to borrow her family’s power instead.
Gu Qing Shan lightly smiles and spoke: “Forgive me, Aunty Su, I’m just suspicious that there might be somebody taking advantage of me to hurt Su Xue Er”
Not expecting that answer, Aunty Su squints her eyes, the grey-haired elderly man also stop his gentle smile.
“What do you mean?” Aunty Su quickly survey the surround, lowering her voice and asks.
“Because today something very strange happened” Gu Qing Shan answers.
“Zhang Ye sneakily put some sort of medicine in my drink, then also encouraged me to confess to Su Xue Er like that”
Seeing not only the two bodyguards but also Su Xue Er carefully listening in, Gu Qing Shan slowly explained things from start to finish.
“In case I refused to do as he says, I thought he might try some other methods, so I decided to comply, staging a scene as before to see what he really wanted to accomplish”
“You mean, you’ve already ingested the medicine?” Aunty Su narrows her eyes further and questioned.
“That’s correct, there’s also this”, Gu Qing Shan extend his hand, placing it on his shoulder.
A black needle covered in blood was pulled out!
Aunty Su’s expression clearly changed, both her and the elderly man became serious.
Ever since the Su eldest daughter started to become friends with Gu Qing Shan, the Su family have already investigated his background carefully, after two years of friendship between them, they know very well what his personal values are like.
So when Gu Qing Shan got close to Su Xue Er like normal, the two bodyguards didn’t mind it.
Who knew that the problem would have sprouted from him of all people.
“Do you feel strange anywhere?” Su Xue Er worried her him and carefully asked.
The two of them have a close enough relationship, so Su Xue Er didn’t want anything bad to happen to him.
“Of course, I feel my libido burning right now” Gu Qing Shan half-jokingly answered.
Unable to say anything to that, Su Xue Er’s face burns up red.
Aunty Su took out a dagger, swipe a small wound on Gu Qing Shan’s finger and licked a drop of his blood.
“Hmph” Aunty Su tasted it for a bit, “So it really was an aphrodisiac, and a strong one at that”
Her eyes looking at him became a bit surprised: “Young brat, and you can still control yourself like this”
Gu Qing Shan dryly laughs: “I’m barely hanging on right now”
In reality, Gu Qing Shan only needed to circulate the spirit energy in his Dantian a little bit to restrain the aphrodisiac effects.
This world doesn’t have the thing called spirit energy yet, Gu Qing Shan also doesn’t want his secret to leak out to other people.
From the start, Su Xue Er was a bright girl, so she immediately understand everything from start to end.
She quickly pulls at Aunty Su’s sleeves and sincerely asked: “Aunty, you’re a master pharmacist, please help him”
Aunty Su took out a small bottle, giving Gu Qing Shan a white capsule from inside: “Swallow it”
Her eyes looking at Gu Qing Shan right now is much gentler than before.
This brat is both bright and careful, not bad.
Gu Qing Shan received the capsule and immediately swallowed it, and continued: “Seems like, his goal was to embarrass both Su Xue Er and I in front of everybody”
Everyone there turned back to look at Zhang Ye.
Zhang Ye seeing everything already got exposed, felt a chill on his whole body.
Suddenly he turns around, quickly wanting to get away.
The two bodyguards having seen that, became angrier inside.
Up to this point, everything is already clear.
Gu Qing Shan usually gets along well with the young lady, so both of them wouldn’t be too much on guard against him.
During an official occasion such as a prom night like this, they’re more focused on looking out for strange faces that appear.
If Gu Qing Shan were to suddenly do something reckless, they might not be able to make it in time to stop him.
In front of everybody like this, if the young lady was violated in any way by Gu Qing Shan, her reputation would definitely suffer, the two of them would also be confused not knowing what to do right away.
If there were any other hidden cards in this prom, it would be very possible for them to take advantage of the chaos and find a chance to assassinate the young lady.
The elderly man’s figure flashed, already stopping Zhang Ye in his tracks.
“Come brat, living is miserable, why not fall into a nice dream instead”
The elderly man chants, uses his big rough hands to take hold of Zhang Ye’s heah, then slowly closes his eyes.
Then something strange happened.
As the elderly man closes his eyes, so does Zhang Ye close his.
Continue chanting in a strange rhythm, the elderly man’s voice is like the devil’s whisper, luring mortals in: “Come, come, come, you need only to tell your secret, I will then satisfy your every desires”
A mesmerized smile appeared on Zhang Ye’s face, his mouth mumbling: “I’ll tell you, I’ll tell you right now”
This strange scene leads to the crowd around murmuring, discussing it between themselves.
Gu Qing Shan also didn’t expect that, asks: “Is this possibly, a ‘God’s Chosen Skill’?”
Su Xue Er standing beside him, quietly answers: “That’s right, grandpa Lee is a God’s Chosen who specialize in finding out the truth”
God’s Chosen are Professionists who hold a unique ability, their abilities usually are mysterious, usually manifesting by itself as a person matures.
Their abilities simply cannot be gotten through any form of cultivation or training, its growth can’t even be interfered with, just like they’ve been decided by god from birth.
Because of that, the people who possess these abilities are called God’s Chosen.
In Reality, humanity’s top-brass fighting power is divided into 4 types, in order they are God’s Chosen, Martial Artists, Supernaturalist, and Heaven’s Descendants, each of them specialize in a different aspect.
Aside from that, powerful mechs and the Interstellar-series warships are common war weapons of mass destruction.
If what Su Xue Er said is true, then the elderly man’s ability must be a hypnosis-type God’s Chosen Skill
Seeing everyone focusing on the elderly man’s work, Su Xue Er lowers her voice and speaks: “Qing Shan ge, today I have to thank you”
“No need to thank me”, Gu Qing Shan curtly replies, “I’m also doing this for myself, if I had really tried to do anything to you in this environment, my outcome would have been exceptionally terrible”
What he’s saying is true, because that’s what happened to his previous life.
Su Xue Er shakes her head and sincerely speaks again: “Qing Shan ge, a maiden’s honor is very important to her, I have to thank you for helping me keep mine. And also, later on if anything happen to you, Xue Er swears to do her best to protect you”
Su Xue Er isn’t a bad girl, in the past life, even when she was absolutely disappointed in Gu Qing Shan, she still kneeled in front of the Su family head for three days, begging for him to spare his life.
Because of that, even though Gu Qing Shan went through so much killing, having to risk his life amongst blood and tears every day making his heart already frozen cold to the core, right up to his very last moment in the Apocalypse, Su Xue Er still had a very important place in his heart.
That’s right, this girl is like this, once she thinks of someone as her friend, she will treat them with kindness from the bottom of her heart.
Gu Qing Shan only smiles and not said anything else.
Some things in this world, you don’t need to speak to convey.
Right now, what he’s more interested in his why Zhang Ye would do this.
During his past life, this is one of the things that he couldn’t find out until the end.
Gu Qing Shan silently thinks, not noticing the girl beside him sneakily glancing at his face.
After a while, Su Xue Er stops her eyes, finding inside herself now contain some unknown emotions.
She keeps feeling like Gu Qing Shan today is different compared to how he always is.
On him, there seems to be something that changed.
