Chapter 157: Domain Communication
After obtaining what they wanted, Su Hao and Yashan left Linyuan City, ready for their journey back.
Yashan asked with confusion, “Boss Wei, is this matter really resolved?”
Su Hao shook his head and said, “Not necessarily. It mainly depends on the future choices of the Four Kings Gang and whether Ji Le Gang will decide to cause trouble. However, it’s probably mostly resolved.”
Yashan chuckled, “Boss Wei, I thought it would be like a few years ago in Temple Forest City, where we had to go back and forth, killing a few people until everyone in Linyuan City was terrified!”
Su Hao replied, “I was thinking the same initially, but after arriving in Linyuan City, I realized that this city is too large. It’s impossible for just the two of us to handle it. So, I changed my mind temporarily.”
Su Hao summarized the entire event and found that they had basically achieved their initial goals. Eliminating the core of Tiansha Gang, “Heavenly Lord,” had multiple benefits: it could disrupt Tiansha Gang’s organization, throw them into chaos, leaving them no time to bother with Temple Forest City. It also served as a display of his strength to other gangs in Linyuan City, establishing a threat against him. Lastly, it was a test of the sixth-level mutants’ perception of danger, confirming the upper limit of the top-level mutants’ strength.
From the results, things went quite smoothly.
What surprised him the most was the management style of the Four Kings Gang, which was somewhat different from typical large gangs. It leaned more towards the teamwork model of a startup’s early days. While there were hierarchies, it emphasized emotional bonds. It was easy to imagine that as the Four Kings Gang grew more powerful in the future, it would gradually transition from a group model to a full-fledged organization.
However, if Gail couldn’t control the situation, gain high prestige, and establish absolute leadership, the Four Kings Gang would likely disintegrate in the end.
But from the current situation, the Four Kings Gang was developing well and had great potential.
For Su Hao, as long as the Four Kings Gang continued to grow in Linyuan City, his Temple Forest City would enjoy long-term stability. If there were opportunities in the future, he might continue to collaborate with the Four Kings Gang.
Upon leaving the city, Su Hao and Yashan quickly found “Shadow Demon” Rose wandering outside.
To Su Hao’s surprise, she hadn’t fled immediately. She probably was genuinely terrified.
However, this “Shadow Demon” Rose had been somewhat cunning. Su Hao found her location, which was about a kilometer away from where they had originally parted. It was a little test. If Su Hao had forgotten about her or couldn’t find her and simply left, she would be free. But if Su Hao still accurately located her, it would mean that staying put was the right choice, and she would completely dispel any thoughts of running away in the future.
As she saw Su Hao, “Shadow Demon” Rose’s mind began to replay the slogan she had chanted in Temple Forest City, “Turn over a new leaf, start anew…”
Her heart slowly sank. “It’s all fate.”
Rose followed behind Su Hao and Yashan, cautiously getting closer to Yashan. She asked, “Boss Yashan, what about Tiansha Gang now?”
Compared to Yashan, for some reason, Rose was more afraid of Su Hao. She always felt that this young Boss, Wei, would bury her without hesitation.
Yashan smiled and said, “As for Tiansha Gang, I guess it’s gone.”
Rose continued, “What about our boss, Heavenly Lord? He didn’t chase after us, did he?”
Yashan responded, “He? He’s gone too.”
Rose’s voice rose, and she looked disbelieving. “Gone? That can’t be!”
Yashan glanced at her but remained silent.
With his and Rose’s respective statuses, was there any reason for him to lie or joke?
Rose quickly realized this. There was no need for Yashan to play with her, but she found it a bit hard to believe. She was caught in a contradiction. On one hand, she believed Yashan wouldn’t lie to her, but on the other hand, she couldn’t believe that “Heavenly Lord” Stan had just died like that. She almost thought she was going crazy.
However, Yashan could understand Rose’s thoughts. If he hadn’t witnessed the events himself, he wouldn’t have believed that the sixth-level mutant “Heavenly Lord” would die so easily.
Through this event, Yashan’s understanding had been greatly shaken. He began to grasp a lesson: things that seem unreasonable, contrary to one’s beliefs, might be worth trying to accept, believe, and think about because it might be due to his own limited knowledge and understanding. When faced with the unknown, it was good to lower one’s ego, stay open-minded, and seek advice from Boss Wei.
In the end, out of pity for Rose’s impoverished thoughts, Yashan said to her, “Rose, you may not understand, but you almost know nothing. That’s alright; many people are the same. When you encounter things you don’t understand, just ask and think more. In this world, no one is invincible; if there’s someone close to that, it’s Boss Wei.”
Rose, upon hearing this, became even more confused.
Yashan saw Rose’s reaction and couldn’t help but smile and shake his head. “So, there’s no saying that one sentence can enlighten someone. To truly understand a lesson, one must experience it themselves.”
Yashan could feel that over the years of following Boss Wei, he had learned a lot. He gradually realized that he and other Zhu Hua people had become different, not in appearance but in their way of thinking.
A few days later, the three of them returned to Temple Forest City.
Temple Forest City hadn’t changed much, and it felt very familiar and welcoming to Su Hao and Yashan. However, for “Shadow Demon” Rose, it was like stepping into another hell.
The closer they got to Temple Forest City, the clearer the various slogans played in her mind. When she saw Temple Forest City, she almost blurted out those slogans.
Upon returning to their base, Taini, who had heard the commotion, immediately rushed out. The big girl didn’t care at all and jumped right into Yashan’s arms. She first had teary eyes, and when she hung on Yashan, she cried out, “Dad…”
Then, large teardrops rolled down, soaking Yashan’s clothes.
Yashan hugged his daughter, remaining silent. In his heart, he thought, “If her brother and mother were still here, how good it would be. If there were less killing and more normalcy in this world, how wonderful it would be.”
Su Hao had originally wanted to talk to Yashan about some matters, but seeing this, he decided not to.
Then, Su Hao’s imagination began to expand once more. “Who says you have to say something in person?”
With this thought in mind, Su Hao immediately returned to the laboratory and began trying to create a long-range voice transmission loudspeaker.
The principle of a loudspeaker is vibration. As long as he could create the corresponding vibration, he could produce the desired sound. The sound’s tone was determined by the waveform of the sound waves. If Su Hao could control the waveform of the vibration in “Transformation Steel,” he could produce various sounds.
It’s quite simple, isn’t it?
Su Hao also thought so. He first transformed a small area of the ground into “Transformation Steel” and attempted to control it to create a vibrating membrane to produce various strange sounds.
“Hmm, hmm, hmm…”
“Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh…”
“Beep, beep, beep…”
As the vibration frequency increased, the sounds became sharper and more piercing.
After continuous attempts, Su Hao became more skilled at controlling the vibrating membrane and producing all sorts of strange sounds.
“Vzz, vzz, vzz…”
The vibrating frequency became faster, and the sounds became even sharper.
After much experimentation, Su Hao’s control became increasingly proficient, and the sound projection distance also got farther from him.
This meant, “Voice transmission within a domain, it works!”
