“Go, I’ll wait for you here”
Anna hung her head, as the long red hair covered her expression.
“Brother, there’s only 5 minutes left until you need to come up” Zhang Ying Hao continued to call him, very reluctantly.
“Then wait here for me” saying so to Anna, Gu Qing Shan hurriedly left.
Right after he left, a shadow moved inside the room from the door.
The shadow turned into Feng Huo De as he immediately asked: “Your Highness, how did it go?”
“I’ll have to stay by his side, you’ll need to return to the Holy Empire alone” Anna replied.
“Hm, fine -WAIT! Your Highness, please say that again!” Feng Huo De screamed.
“Huo De, the remaining forces in the Holy Empire will need you to hold them together, I’m going to come with him” Anna answered very seriously.
“Your Highness, I understand that the bloodline of the empire needs to continue, but isn’t this a bit too soon? Then again, how many princes do you intend to birth?”
“Go back the Holy Empire, NOW!”
On another side.
Gu Qing Shan and Zhang Ying Hao quickly headed towards the elevator.
“Who was the previous speaker?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
“The President, as soon as he finished his speech, he seemed to be a bit tired so he already returned to his room upstairs” Zhang Ying Hao said.
“Is that so?” Gu Qing Shan felt that wasn’t quite right.
What’s wrong with the President? He silently thought.
“For your speech, have you thought of what you need to say?” Zhang Ying Hao asked.
“There’s more sea creatures invading land every day, the Man Killer Fiends are becoming stronger and stronger, when faced with these kinds of situation, all you need to do is tell them the harsh truth” Gu Qing Shan stopped his thoughts and answered.
“Hm, no need to feel too pressured, I just met a few of my friends in politics and asked for their help, if something happens in the conference, they’ll follow up for you”
While they were walking and talking, both of their faces changed as they stood still.
The ground was shaking a little bit.
As soon as they stopped, a dull sound of impact was heard from outside.
This sound seemed to have marked the start of something horrible.
Somewhere on the higher floors of the International Conference Center, screams and cries were heard.
Something extremely horrifying must’ve happened, as every person at the conference couldn’t help but shout in fear.
“What happened? That was a gun shot, could it be, assassination?” Zhang Ying Hao very calmly assessed the situation.
“Could you tell which kind it was?” Gu Qing Shan released his inner sight to observe the surround and quickly asked.
“It sounded like a Railgun, this type of weapon has doubled the range compared to traditional firearms, as well as overwhelming power” Zhang Ying Hao said.
“It’s too far from where we are” Gu Qing Shan said.
They both ran to look outside the window panes.
A few dozen Assault Mechs were roaring their engines, rushing out of the conference center in a certain direction.
Immediately after, groups of soldiers appeared out of nowhere and quickly surrounded the conference center.
A few people who wore officer clothing were also chasing after the Mechs.
They weren’t losing to the Mechs in speed as well.
They were all very powerful Professionists, Special Ops with very high ranking in the military.
A loud engine sound was heard in the sky.
What appeared was a large-sized Interstellar Warship, hovering above the conference center.
Three groups of fighter shuttles got off the Warship and headed towards the same direction.
“Impartial Goddess, what happened?” Gu Qing Shan asked in a low voice.
[The President was attacked, currently pursuing the culprit] Impartial Goddess answered.
“What!?” Zhang Ying Hao exclaimed.
“What happened to the President?” Gu Qing Shan quickly asked.
[Unsure, all the surveillance devices in the conference center was affected by an electromagnetic field for a few seconds, I wasn’t able to issue a warning in time] Impartial Goddess replied.
“Where’s the President?”
[The highest floor suite]
Suddenly, they saw someone making their way up the outside window panes through jumping.
Their movements were quick and efficient, only tapping the glass very slightly before they ascended.
In their hands were two daggers.
Very quickly, they’ve already went past this floor.
[Unrecognizable] Impartial Goddess quickly told them.
In a single second, Gu Qing Shan burst through the window like a cannonball, standing in mid-air.
He held the Night Rain in his hand.
Ten arrows drew unpredictable trajectories, all heading upwards.
That wasn’t the end either, as Gu Qing Shan stowed the bow away, he grabbed a sword from mid-air, shifting his body and flew upwards close to the wall.
“He’s… flying…” Zhang Ying Hao was stunned beyond words.
Above Gu Qing Shan, the person quickly turned around and hit the arrows away with his daggers.
The arrows were a bit too strong, so despite his quick reaction being able to stop them all, he couldn’t help but feel numb in both hands.
And then Gu Qing Shan came.
The Earth Sword drew a very simple arc across the sky.
The person wanted to block with his daggers, but got bisected together with his weapons.
The body split into two as a rain of blood burst in front of the window panes.
[Diagonally above, sir!] Impartial Goddess’ voice was heard.
Gu Qing Shan looked up and sure enough, another assassin was using both hands to climb up the wall like a gecko.
Gu Qing Shan put his sword away, took out the bow and knocked an arrow.
This shot was like a cannonball, blowing both the assassin and the wall to smithereens.
“Are there anymore?” Gu Qing Shan asked in a low voice.
[None outside, but there’s one more inside, currently heading towards the highest floor] Impartial Goddess answered.
Gu Qing Shan crashed through the window and headed up the stairs.
I have to make it in time!
Gritting his teeth, he flew upwards as fast as he could.
Gu Qing Shan’s body turned into a grey streak, following the stairs up. Occasionally there were people in his way, got blown over by the wind, but couldn’t see anything else once they regained their senses from shock.
[Thick beard, sunglasses, a pipe in one hand, wearing a green military coat, grey pants, black leather shoes, currently on 11th floor] Impartial Goddess described him.
Gu Qing Shan made it to 11th floor.
His inner sight has already locked onto the man.
The assassin was the best of the people sent this time, as soon as Gu Qing Shan arrived, he noticed how dangerous he was.
He quickly turned around.
In his sight was a figure flying towards him.
The figure was extremely young, but his face contained nothing but coldness, calmness and focus, not a single bit of excitement or feeling of luck.
This was the last thing he ever saw.
An intense pain came as the world around him turned black.
Blood spewed everywhere.
Gu Qing Shan put away his sword.
The assassin got sliced into pieces by the sword qi on his sword, when he died, both his hands were letting out a chilling frost.
Obviously he died while he was still preparing to attack.
Gu Qing Shan didn’t bother to look at the results and quickly asked: “Are there anymore?”
[Currently undetected] Impartial Goddess answered.
“President…” Gu Qing Shan moved up the stairs towards the top floor.
When he got there, the special services members guarding the door were trying to break it down.
“Quickly, quickly, quickly!”
“Use more force!”
They were screaming.
The highest floor’s doors were sealed shut, this was the highest quality suite of the entire building, so the security measures taken on the door were also the highest of quality, but it backfired this time.
Another special services member and a medic arrived at the same time.
They exchanged looks, then locked onto Gu Qing Shan.
After that, the special services members look a bit shocked, seems like they just receive the information on who Gu Qing Shan was and put down their guard again.
“Get away, I’ll do it”
Taking the Earth Sword in hand, he was about to break down the door, then stopped.
A sound was heard from inside.
And then the door opened.
The President walked out unscathed, his expression calm.
The special service member gestured, then the medic came forward.
“I’m fine, just go catch them quickly” the President waved his hand.
The door was closed behind him.
The medic didn’t bother to listen to him and started to scan him with the devices he brought.
A few seconds later.
“The President is unhurt” the medic reported.
It’s great that he’s ok!
Everyone was able to sigh from relief.
Gu Qing Shan also put the healing pill back in his Inventory Bag and sighed.
The President is one of the few people that Gu Qing Shan respect, so he doesn’t want him to have any problems.
“Sir, do we not need to clean up inside?” a special service member asked.
“It’s just a broken window, I’m dealing with some important work inside, so it’s not exactly convenient to let you in, I’m also unhurt, so you can come check it again tonight”
The President’s expression was cold, his tone also chilly: “To dare to attempt an assassination at an International conference, make sure you catch this assassin”
“““Yes sir!””” the special service members agreed
As more special service members came, they all saw that the President was fine and sighed from relief.
Immediately, a special service member came out to take control, leaving only a few people at the scene while other went to protect important chokeholds.
The President looked at Gu Qing Shan and spoke in a soft voice: “Qing Shan, sorry for making you worry”
“It’s good that you’re fine” Gu Qing Shan released his inner sight to scan him.
No wounds, his body was completely normal.
Gu Qing Shan silently nodded.
“For such a thing to happen, the official conference might have to stop here…” the President contemplated.
After a bit of thinking, he suddenly said: “How about we make an unofficial meeting then, you, me, the Fuxi Emperor and the representative of the Holy Empire”
“I have no problems with that, let’s do as you suggest” Gu Qing Shan agreed.
“Very well, then you can return first to rest, I’ll call you later” the President said.
Gu Qing Shan nodded and left.
When he couldn’t be seen anymore, the President looked at the special service members and started giving out orders.
They were all a bit surprised.
Normally the President only asks about safety and let them do their jobs, but he’s actively delegating roles right now.
But if you think about it, this is an International conference hosted by the country he headed, yet in broad daylight, in front of everyone, the President himself got attacked!
Of course the President would be angry about it, so wanting to actively delegate jobs like this is very understandable.
The special service members of course wouldn’t say anything to that, they followed his orders and began to deal with matters one at a time.
Finally, when there were only a few special service members left as guards, the President finally returned to his room.
The door was shut tightly behind him.
