Chapter 159: The Name ‘City Protector of Temple Forest’
During the month or two when Su Hao was busy with the Little Round Mouse, the situation in Linyuan City changed. It went from having four major gangs to only three.
These three gangs were the ‘Four Kings Gang’ , the ‘Ji Le Gang,’ and ‘The Original Gang’ led by a single person.
The leader of the Ji Le Gang, Kana, was a single, older woman, and the gang’s members were almost all peculiar women. They spent their days inside the Ji Le Gang stronghold, and various light-hearted and cheerful sounds could be heard from inside. However, no one knew what they were actually doing inside, and outsiders didn’t dare to enter easily.
Although the Ji Le Gang was made up of women, their strength couldn’t be underestimated. The main reason their territory was small was that their leader, Kana, had no interest in dominating or expanding. She was content to stay on her own turf, as long as others didn’t provoke them or encroach on their interests.
Kana was more interested in women, after all.
As for the ‘Original Gang,’ it was more of an individual occupying an area than a gang. They had no interest in expanding their influence outward and preferred to engage in peculiar activities. No one dared to provoke them.
Because no one knew where their leader’s true self was, or maybe, all those strange and mute people were the leader’s true selves.
With the Ji Le Gang and the Original Gang showing no interest in dominating Linyuan City, the remaining ‘Four Kings Gang’ would become the dominant force in Linyuan City, controlling almost all the territories.
Without the balance of the ‘Tiansha Gang,’ the ‘Four Kings Gang’ had achieved breakthroughs on both the scale and absolute strength fronts.
After swallowing Stan’s flesh and blood, ‘Heavenly King’ Kass had become the new ‘Heavenly Lord’ of Linyuan City.
In Linyuan City, a meeting of the Four Kings Gang was held.
This meeting included Gaili, Kass, Xiaotong, and Ashi.
They all enthusiastically shared their recent victories, appearing extremely excited, except for Ashi, who remained silent and listened to the others boasting.
Suddenly, Xiaotong changed the subject, “Recently, many small gangs and groups seem to be getting restless, wanting to occupy a piece of territory. Our strength can’t cover all the areas, and that’s a headache!”
Gaili waved her hand and said, “No big problem. Let’s select eight people, promote them to the rank of King, and deploy them to various areas. They can hold the fort on their own.”
Xiaotong frowned and remained silent, apparently contemplating the feasibility of Gaili’s suggestion.
Gaili knew what Xiaotong was worried about and laughed, “Xiaotong, don’t overthink it. We have Kass to back us up. He’s an all-powerful sixth-level Heavenly Lord!”
Kass couldn’t help but become smug and ruffled his short fur.
Gaili added, “I know what you’re worried about. But trust me!”
What Gaili didn’t know was that for the ‘Four Kings Gang’ to expand, even with ‘trust,’ it still wouldn’t be enough.
In the history of the Zu Hua people, there had been countless powerful mutants who tried various methods to unite the world, to stop the endless devouring and fighting. But without exception, they all failed in the end, not because of external factors, but due to internal self-destruction.
If the core issue isn’t resolved, this matter will never be successful.
After some idle chitchat, Xiaotong asked, “Gaili, there’s another issue. How should we deal with that apparent level-seven mutant weaver?”
Gaili laughed heartily, “He’s a friend!”
Xiaotong furrowed her brow and said, “It’s fine if we consider him a friend, but he might not see us the same way!”
Gaili chuckled inexplicably, “Xiaotong, I consider him a friend. What does it matter whether he considers us friends or not? There’s no problem, right? As long as we treat him as a friend, no matter how powerful he is, can he come after me? Just like how I consider you a friend, would you come after me with a knife?”
Gaili confidently added, “I don’t know about others, but I can see that Wei is a principled person. As long as you maintain a certain balance in your interaction with him, there won’t be any issues!”
The others, including Xiaotong, agreed with this sentiment. They recognized that Gaili was the best they’d ever seen when it came to dealing with people’s psychological vulnerabilities.
Xiaotong worriedly added, “I don’t know who leaked the news about Wei, but almost the entire Linyuan City is spreading rumors about Wei instantly killing ‘Heavenly Lord’ Stan. The stories are becoming increasingly sensational. Some even say they want to leave Linyuan City and seek Wei’s protection in Temple Forest City…”
Gaili chuckled awkwardly, “Ah, that was a slip of the tongue on my part! Haha!”
Xiaotong immediately jumped up and gave Gaili a light pat, “You’re still laughing? What if Wei finds out and comes back to cause trouble for us?”
Gaili grinned, “He won’t, you can relax!”
Cass asked quietly, “Just how strong is Wei?”
Gaili replied casually, “When I shook hands with him, the information I received was that he had the ability to instantly destroy the entire Linyuan City.”
The other three, including Ashi, slowly opened their mouths as if they could fit ten eggs in them.
Cass’s proud evolution suddenly crumbled, and he said in disbelief, “Gaili, you must be joking! How could that be possible? Even the legendary ‘gods’ couldn’t do that! Is he some kind of ‘god’?”
Gaili scratched his head and laughed heartily, “I didn’t believe it at first either, but Wei had that thought at the time! It even startled me! And, don’t dream, Kass, ‘gods’ don’t exist! It’s just a lie!”
Gaili concluded, “Maybe Wei is the person prophesied to bring change, because under normal circumstances, a level-seven mutant as young as him couldn’t exist. His birth alone suggests his extraordinary nature. Besides, even if we’re wrong, it doesn’t matter!”
In Linyuan City, every street and alley was talking about the annihilation of the Tiansha Gang. In many people’s eyes, the Tiansha Gang wasn’t just an ordinary gang; it represented one of the world’s nearly top-tier powers. Yet, a gang with such power had been annihilated overnight.
This incident was as sensational as the destruction of a small country. And what was being discussed most was the mention of ‘Temple Forest City’s Weaver.’ Nearly everyone in Linyuan City now knew that the mastermind behind the ‘Tiansha Gang’s destruction’ was the ‘Temple Forest City’s Weaver.’
This piece of news gradually spread to all the surrounding cities and the Zhu Hua people’s gathering points. Temple Forest City and Weaver became famous. Everyone was highly curious about this extraordinarily powerful mutant who could instantly defeat the nearly invincible ‘Heavenly Lord’ Stan.
However, Weaver remained very mysterious, and there was little information available about him. All people knew was that Weaver came from ‘Temple Forest City’ and was very handsome. Beyond that, there was no accurate information about him.
This led many people with various intentions to set out on the road to Temple Forest City.
This made Temple Forest City lively for the next few years, but very few people were able to see the so-called ‘Temple Forest City’s Weaver.’
The fame of ‘Temple Forest City’s Weaver’ was blazing within the area of Linyuan City and its surrounding cities but was gradually forgotten by people who didn’t get to see him.
