Chapter 169: The Pauper Version of the Four Kings Gang
Regardless of what the Four Kings Gang wanted to do, they couldn’t be allowed into Temple Forest City. If a conflict were to erupt, it would inevitably damage the city and harm the innocent.
Su Hao immediately pinpointed the location of Yashan. He activated ‘Blood Assimilation,’ and his blood and cells surged, transforming into a wrist-thick line that extended to the Ninth Floor of the Upper Building, creating two trumpet-shaped circles next to Yashan.
“Boss Wei?” Yashan was initially startled but quickly realized.
Without waiting for Yashan to speak, Su Hao’s voice came through the circles. “Yashan, we’ve found members of the Four Kings Gang three kilometers south of the city. Gather your team and intercept them outside the city. Find out their intentions before allowing them inside.”
Yashan was taken aback and immediately got up, asking, “Members of the Four Kings Gang? Understood, Boss Wei. I’ll take care of it right away!”
Su Hao didn’t say anything further and retracted the transformed steel.
For Su Hao, this was just a minor matter, and Yashan was more than capable of handling it on his own. There was no need for Su Hao to personally intervene.
After sending the notification, Su Hao shifted his focus back to designing the genes of the little round rats.
Yashan swiftly left the room, instructing the liaison officer, “Norin, inform Meng Chuan, Soban, Nana, Rose, and the others to gather their teams and meet at the south gate.”
Norin was a cold woman who nodded slightly. “Understood, Yashan Boss.”
She was a Level 4 mutant in the Mimic-Shifter sequence, known as a “Soul Eater.” She had developed a highly useful ability called “Spores,” which allowed her to parasitize a small portion of her cells on others for up to a month. Once activated, she could transmit simple messages as well.
After Yashan discovered her, she had been kept close as the liaison officer for the “Temple Society.”
After making the arrangements, Yashan reached for the large gun hanging on the wall, checked it, slung it over his shoulder, and confidently walked out of the Ninth Floor of the Upper Building, heading south out of the city.
When Yashan arrived outside the city, he found that the “Heavenly King” Meng Chuan, the “Mad Demon” Souban, the “Shadow Demon” Nana, the “Shadow Demon” Rose were already waiting, along with two newly promoted Level 4 mutants, “Silk Demon” and “Speed Demon.” These individuals were considered the top brass of the “Temple Society,” and their various sequences were now almost complete.
In addition, there were some Level 3 subordinates following them, and at a glance, there were dozens of people, all exuding a powerful aura.
Yashan didn’t say anything either, he simply waved his hand, and with a bustling crowd, they headed south.
They quickly encountered the members of the Four Kings Gang.
When they saw each other, both sides instinctively stopped.
Yashan asked in surprise, “Aren’t you members of the Four Kings Gang? What happened? Why do you look like this?”
As soon as he saw Yashan, Gaili’s eyes lit up, and he immediately laughed and walked over. “Brother Yashan! It’s been a long time, I’ve missed you!”
Seeing Yashan and the others looking at them strangely, Gaili couldn’t help but burst into laughter. “You see this appearance! We just had a fight a few days ago, and we were in a hurry to escape. We didn’t have time to tidy up. I thought I’d go into the city first and clean up, then look for you and Wei. I didn’t expect to meet so soon!”
Yashan appeared even more puzzled. “Who could have put you in such a state?”
Gaili looked dispirited and said, “Two Level 6 mutants came from the Anliang City, one is the “Earth Lord” and the other is the “Mist Lord.” They joined forces, and we couldn’t match them, so we ran.”
Yashan’s eyes lit up, but he quickly suppressed the excitement in his heart and asked, “That shouldn’t be the case. Don’t you have the “Heavenly Lord,” the “Bliss Lord,” and the “Origin Lord”? As long as you work together, even if you can’t drive them out, it shouldn’t be this miserable, right?”
Gaili said with a bitter smile, “You’re right, but the “Earth Lord” from the “Earth People” sequence and the “Mist Lord” from the “Lightfoot People” sequence don’t play fair at all! We couldn’t beat them, and when we fought, entire sections of Lingyuan City were destroyed. The “Bliss Lord” Kana saw the situation was not good and ran away with her people… I was thinking, why not give Linyuan City to them for now and come back to clean them up when I find help.”
After saying that, he smiled and looked at Yashan. “I didn’t think about it; I came to you and Wei for help! And Yashan, you don’t have to worry. Those two guys haven’t come after us; I think they’re still fighting Kana!”
Yashan nodded. “I see.”
After chatting for a while, Yashan led the Four Kings Gang members into the city.
Yashan found it challenging to harbor ill feelings toward Gaili. No matter how he looked at it, Gaili showed no signs of hostility and genuinely treated him as a friend. Moreover, the Four Kings Gang members’ current appearance made Yashan reluctant to take action against them.
Apart from that, there was another very important reason why Yashan let the Four Kings Gang into the city: the next evolution stage of the “Steel Armor King,” which was the “Earth Lord,” had appeared in Lingyuan City.
Yashan was searching for the “Earth Lord,” and Boss Wei was as well. They had practically walked right into their hands.
Since the other party had willingly come to them, it indicated that they were not far from evolving into a more powerful “Earth Lord.”
Yashan had no doubts about this. After arranging the Four Kings Gang and others with high standards, Yashan found Su Hao and called out softly from outside the door, “Boss Wei!”
He only called once and then stood quietly, not saying anything more.
Yashan knew that Boss Wei had definitely heard him, and now he just had to wait. After a moment, Su Hao opened the door and walked out, asking, “Yashan, what are the Four Kings Gang doing here?”
Yashan then briefly explained the Four Kings Gang’s situation and added, “Boss Wei, they should not be lying!”
Su Hao nodded and said, “I understand. Let them rest properly. I’ll meet with them tomorrow!”
Yashan replied, “They also requested to wander around the city.”
Su Hao said, “As long as they don’t cause any trouble, they can roam freely.”
Yashan nodded and said, “Alright, Boss Wei!”
The next day, Su Hao met with the transformed Four Kings Gang and others in the meeting hall of the Ninth Floor of the Upper Building. Xiaotong, Kass, and Ashi sat quietly in chairs, lost in thought.
Gaili, on the other hand, was idly playing with the tea cup in front of him. As soon as Su Hao appeared, all four of them looked over in unison, each with a different expression.
When Gaili saw Su Hao, his eyes lit up, and he jumped up, shouting, “Wei! It’s only been a few years, and you’ve changed so much! I wouldn’t mind if you were better than me, but you’re even more handsome than me!”
Su Hao took a good look at Gaili. This guy had changed his hairstyle to a very trendy look, giving him a somewhat gangster-like demeanor.
Su Hao smiled and asked, “Go ahead, Gaili. What are you doing here in our Temple Forest City?”
Gaili exaggerated, “Oh, Wei, how can you be so cold to your friends? You should at least inquire about my recent situation!”
Su Hao found a place to sit and said, “Seeing your complexion, you must be doing well recently. You don’t need me to ask too much.”
Gaili looked embarrassed and said, “On the contrary, we’ve run into a bit of trouble recently and need your help.”
Su Hao laughed, “If the Four Kings Gang can’t handle it, I can’t help. You’ve got the wrong person.” Gaili chuckled and said, “Actually, we didn’t come to ask for your help, Wei. Lingyuan City has been taken over by someone else, and we have nowhere else to go, so we brought them with us to seek refuge with you.”
Su Hao was suddenly filled with question marks. This was not what he had expected! He had thought that Gaili had come to tell him about the “Earth Lord” to entice him to take action, as it was relatively easy to obtain information that Yashan was a “Steel Armor King.”
However, now it had turned into seeking refuge, and for a moment, Su Hao couldn’t quite figure out what Gaili and the Four Kings Gang really wanted.
But what surprised Su Hao even more was Xiaotong and Kass. The two of them immediately stood up and said, “Seek refuge? Gaili, what nonsense are you talking about!”
