Chapter 156: The So-Called Prophecy
The sky had already darkened at this point.
Su Hao and Yashan arrived beside the corpse of ‘Heavenly Lord’ Stan, but they were blocked by someone.
“Who are you? Leave this place quickly!”
This was a Level 4 mutant from the ‘Residual Poison People’ sequence, known as ‘Death Demon.’ He emitted a terrifying stench, and a mysterious black liquid oozed from his body, like ink dripping from an aged wound. His face was covered in red wrinkles, emitting a faint smoke, indicating extreme toxicity.
This ‘Death Demon’ emitted a dense fog, tightly surrounding ‘Heavenly Lord’ Stan’s corpse.
Su Hao frowned, unable to penetrate the fog and hesitant to test the extent of ‘Death Demon’s’ abilities. He turned to Yashan and said, “Yashan!”
Yashan immediately understood, grabbed the large gun strapped to his back, and swiftly loaded a misshapen projectile into the chamber. At such close range, precision wasn’t necessary; just having it work was enough.
After Yashan was ready, he aimed it at ‘Death Demon’ without bothering to take precise aim and activated all the runes.
Finally, he activated ‘Tier 2 – Fifth Burst.’
Yashan was pushed back by the immense recoil.
As for ‘Death Demon,’ there was now a massive hole in his chest, offering a clear view of the scenery behind him. ‘Death Demon’ stared down at the hole in disbelief, pointed at Yashan, his eyes wide, and said, “It’s… it’s you…”
Then, he fell to the ground in unwilling resignation. In just a moment, he lost his life.
Su Hao raised his hand, and a fiery dragon swept through the toxic fog, hissing.
A strong wind gushed from Su Hao’s hand, instantly dispersing the toxic fog.
Su Hao and Yashan quickly approached, cut off a large piece of flesh from ‘Heavenly Lord’ Stan’s back, and then followed Yashan to leave the area.
No one dared to stop Su Hao and Yashan anymore.
Everyone’s eyes gleamed as they stared at ‘Heavenly Lord’ Stan’s body, but no one dared to approach it. ‘Heavenly Lord’ Stan’s level was too high, and unless they were Level 5 mutants of the same sequence, such as ‘Heavenly King,’ and their energy was already at its peak, they wouldn’t stand a chance.
Not long after Su Hao and Yashan left, Kass from the Four Kings Gang descended from the sky and walked to ‘Heavenly Lord’ Stan’s corpse. His eyes revealed an insatiable desire.
The flesh and blood of ‘Heavenly Lord’ were now his, and he, ‘Heavenly King’ Kass, would become the new ‘Heavenly Lord’ of Linyuan City!
Kass raised Stan’s body into the air, and then he soared into the sky, disappearing into the dim night.
Evolution was essential, but what Gaili had ordered was even more important. He needed to find a place to store Stan’s body for the time being, and he could evolve after completing the task.
A while later, Kass flew back to Gaili, placed the body down, and said, “Gaili, please watch over this body for me.”
Gaili smiled and said, “I’ll take care of it. Don’t worry.”
The reason Gaili had so much trust in Su Hao wasn’t something he mentioned. He always believed that the special mutant prophesied in their lineage’s prediction was himself. However, upon meeting Wei, when they shook hands, he felt that the unique mutant was more likely to be Wei.
At this moment, Gaili was filled with anticipation for the future, eager to meet Wei once again.
It turned out that in this world, he wasn’t the only one working tirelessly to bring about change.
If Su Hao could know what Gaili was thinking at this moment, he would undoubtedly strongly agree with the prophecy of the ‘Prophetic People.’
In fact, Su Hao had thought deeply about this issue. Based on the history of the Zhu Hua people’s development, it was easy to speculate on the future outcome. In essence, when a group of ordinary Zhu Hua people were driven into a dangerous situation by the mutants’ battles, it would inevitably give rise to a genius who awakened to a new mindset. After becoming incredibly powerful, this individual would, in turn, engage in a slaughter of the mutant population, offering survival opportunities to ordinary Zhu Hua people and thereby bringing about a transformation.
The identity of this person could be anyone. It was a probabilistic event. It didn’t mean that the ‘Prophetic People’ were incredibly powerful, having predicted Su Hao’s birth over a thousand years ago. Instead, the ‘Prophetic People’ had foreseen the development patterns of the entire Zhu Hua population.
The person who would change the world might be Su Hao, Gaili, Yashan, or someone who had not yet been born. It could be anyone, and this probability fluctuated with time. For example, if Su Hao currently had a 1% probability of being that person, this probability could increase to 10% as he began relentlessly slaughtering mutants. Conversely, if Su Hao were to withdraw and do nothing, this probability would decrease to 0.001%.
In terms of probabilities, everything in this world could be explained.
Su Hao and Yashan hid in a corner, silently observing the changes in the entire city. Members of the Four Kings Gang targeted mutants of Level 4 and above. Each leader within the Gang had been assigned the task of eliminating one or two mutants to prevent the Tiansha Gang from effectively organizing a resistance. As night fully descended, the clean-up operation was nearing its end.
The [Ejection King] was also restrained by [Control King] Ashi, and finally died with hatred.
The subsequent developments were relatively satisfactory for Su Hao. This cooperation with the Four Kings Gang had been relatively successful. When the overall situation was settled, Su Hao and Yashan found Gaili.
Upon seeing Su Hao, Gaili immediately became excited. “Wei! You’re truly amazing. I can’t even fathom how you managed to kill ‘Heavenly Lord’ in an instant. In my eyes, it was impossible. Even if you were a Level 7 mutant, it would still be difficult to achieve. Can you tell me the answer?”
Su Hao showed a warm smile. “Are you suggesting you want to try?”
Gaili immediately shook his head, rejecting the idea. “No, no, no! I don’t want to know if you don’t want to tell me.”
Su Hao didn’t beat around the bush and straightforwardly stated his intentions. “I came here to inform you that from now on, no one in Linyuan City is allowed to entertain any thoughts of taking over Temple Forest City. Temple Forest City belongs to me, Wei. If there is another incident, I might consider wiping out all mutants in Linyuan City!”
Su Hao smiled and continued, “Don’t doubt my ability to do so.”
Gaili immediately nodded. “Rest assured, as long as the Four Kings Gang is in Linyuan City, we won’t allow anyone to set their sights on Temple Forest City. On the other side, there’s the Ji Le Gang, led by ‘Bliss King’ Kana. I don’t have control there. But you don’t need to worry; Kana is only interested in beauty, not much else. If I relay the message, she probably won’t act recklessly.”
Su Hao nodded. “I hope so.”
After some thought, Su Hao brought up another condition. “May I propose a condition to you?”
Gaili chuckled and said, “Wei, what kind of relationship do we have to need conditions? If there’s anything I can help with, just tell me. No need to be so formal.”
Su Hao was at a loss for words. What kind of relationship? They had just met yesterday.
Su Hao said, “I need flesh and blood from mutants of Level 4 or above in the Tiansha Gang, one piece each.”
Gaili’s eyes gleamed, and he readily agreed, “Sure, it’s a small matter. You just need to wait for a moment.”
With a smile, Gaili then asked, “Wei, do you want to join our Four Kings Gang?”
Su Hao immediately declined, saying, “No, not interested.”
