Chapter 195: God’s Name, “The Genesis God”
Su Hao enjoyed a satisfying meal, relishing a long-lost sense of physical satisfaction. This time, he was becoming increasingly content with Yashan. If it were possible, Su Hao would want Yashan to stay with him all the time. However, how could he achieve that?
When he dies in this world, he will inevitably continue wandering endlessly in the universe, and Yashan will eventually disappear with the passage of time. Thinking about this, Su Hao felt a strange sense of loneliness.
The path of pursuing knowledge is inherently lonely. The joy of gaining knowledge has no one to share it with, and the sorrow of facing setbacks has no one to confide in. Although Su Hao didn’t mind this, he still felt a sense of regret. Wouldn’t it be better if there were some trustworthy people to accompany him on this journey?
People like his father, Wu Yuntian, from his previous life, or his subordinate Yashan, who worked tirelessly for him in this life.
As he thought about it, Su Hao fell into deep contemplation. “Perhaps… it’s feasible?” He then shook his head with a smile. He was far from achieving this because his understanding of the Pinball Space was still too shallow.
All these years, he had been focusing on surviving as much as possible after reincarnation, constantly striving to acquire various knowledge and power, while neglecting the fundamental reason for his existence – the Pinball Space. The knowledge documents from when he was Zhao Hui still lay quietly in a corner of the Pinball Space, and he couldn’t remember how many years it had been since he last opened one to study.
These years were spent in solitary research and exploration, almost forgetting the joy of learning and problem-solving. It was a time of carefree simplicity.
Unfortunately, he had to first obtain enough power to protect himself and gain more time. For example, without having mastered enough strength, he would have already been killed by “Evil Child,” and after dying and being reincarnated, he would have to start over, with no spare time for learning.
Killing “Evil Child” would provide him with ample time to study, or to earnestly explore other undeveloped functions of the Pinball Space. Su Hao was confident that he would make progress.
Su Hao lay on the recliner, organizing his thoughts about the future, while Yashan imitated him, forming a recliner and gazing at the sky.
After some time, Su Hao sighed and turned to Yashan, asking, “Yashan, can you really trust the situation with Huixiang when you return like this?”
Yashan nodded earnestly and said, “Of course, I haven’t been in charge of things for these years. It’s all been handled by Taini. The ‘Soul Eater’ Norin and the ‘Heavenly Lord’ Meng Chuan have been coordinating everything efficiently. I’m not afraid of you making fun of me, but I’ve realized over these years that I don’t have much talent for management. I’m still the same old me, haha.”
Su Hao nodded with a smile and said, “Being able to recognize your strengths and weaknesses, Yashan, you’ve surpassed many people.”
Yashan also smiled and said, “That’s right! My role now is more about giving the ‘Temple Forest Society’ an aim, a belief. As for the matters, they handle everything properly.”
Su Hao said, “Not bad, Yashan, you’ve truly grasped the essence of management. It’s not as simple as you claim.”
Yashan said, “To be honest, I just thought that whoever obeys me, I’ll take good care of them, and whoever disobeys, I’ll beat them into submission and then take good care of them. Haha, I didn’t expect it to be somewhat useful.”
Su Hao also laughed and said, “That’s right, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
Yashan said, “Before Taini evolved into a mutant, I was a bit hesitant about handing everything over to her. I used to follow her closely. Now that I’ve helped her evolve to the ‘Earth Lord’ and taught her how to fly, I feel much more at ease.”
Su Hao said, “That little girl Taini, is she perhaps the youngest ‘Earth Lord’?”
Yashan scratched his head apologetically and said, “Boss Wei, after some time, I want to help Taini advance to the ‘Lifebearer’ level. Once she has enough self-defense capabilities, she can come back to Temple Forest City and assist you with some trivial matters. I’m not interested in all those miscellaneous matters of the ‘Temple Forest Society.’ I prefer to stay by Boss Wei’s side. If possible, I don’t even want to go back to Huixiang City!”
Su Hao glanced at Yashan and replied, “Yashan, your decision is fine. The most liberating aspect of being human is the ability to choose what you like. As long as you can bear the consequences, everything is okay.”
Yashan, excited to gain Wei’s approval, said, “In the future, I’ll return to Huixiang City twice a month to inspect and ensure that the ‘Temple Forest Society’ stays on the right track. The rest of the time, I’ll stay in Temple Forest City!”
Su Hao inquired, “By the way, what’s the current situation over there?”
Yashan laughed heartily when he mentioned it, “Over in Huixiang City, their ‘Four Kings Gang’ has now become our ‘Temple Forest Society’s’ ‘Public Safety Team.’ Furthermore, they’ve declared their complete integration into the ‘Temple Forest Society’ and have become staunch supporters. They haven’t mentioned returning to Linyuan City anymore.”
Su Hao cautioned, “Yashan, don’t be deceived by appearances. Gaili is a ‘Prophet.’ He’s very intelligent and has his own set of principles and methods for handling things. He’s also a very proud person. People like him won’t be swayed by shallow theories. Even if he’s temporarily swayed, he’ll quickly figure out the principles. Right now, he supports the ‘Temple Forest Society’ because he’s limited by his own understanding and believes that it’s his best choice. But that might change in the future. If he thinks he has a better way, he’ll undoubtedly abandon the ‘Temple Forest Society’ and maybe even replace it. Do you understand what I’m saying, Yashan?”
Yashan was taken aback and asked, “Boss Wei, what should I do then?”
Su Hao smiled and said, “Haven’t you already found a way? Maintain an absolute strength advantage. If they don’t obey, keep beating them until they do, or simply eliminate them.”
Yashan’s eyes lit up, and he nodded, saying, “I understand, Boss Wei!”
Su Hao continued, “The current ‘Temple Forest Society’ and the current social structure have not reached a point where dissenting issues can be handled with gentle methods. Yashan, you must remember that you are the faith of the ‘Temple Forest Society.’ You can’t go wrong. If you make a mistake, the entire ‘Temple Forest Society’ will be in the wrong. So, as long as you have a goal, charge forward with everything you have, and break through any obstacles with the knife in your hand. Until you reach the finish line, you will never know if you are right or wrong. Just like someone telling you that the food isn’t good, but you won’t truly know until you taste it. What’s the harm in making mistakes? You can always correct them!”
After a pause, Su Hao added, “And all of this is based on the premise that you must have absolute, overwhelming strength.”
With these words, Yashan’s mind was once again deeply influenced. This was a result of his trust in Boss Wei.
Yashan said solemnly, “Boss Wei, I understand! You can rest assured that the ‘Temple Forest Society’ won’t go astray. Even if it does, I can bring it back piece by piece!”
Then Yashan continued, “Boss Wei, I’ve already built a temple in the central square of Huixiang City, and I’ve engraved an idol of you above the temple! Through a unanimous decision in the ‘Temple Forest Society,’ it’s named ‘The Genesis God.'”
Su Hao: “Cough.. cough.!!”
