Chapter 272: Suppression
In his mysterious host room, 9527, the guy who was fat like a ball, laughed.
At the same moment, on the screen, Han was continuing his Wind Forest Volcano quest. 9527 witnessed the whole process. At first, he tortured them by various means. When River Lovran was tortured until he was half dead, Han and his army of genetic beasts suddenly came out and gave him the final blow.
9527 talked to himself while laughing, “Finally I understand why it is so hard for you to master the Path of Demon, because you yourself is not a demon at all. From the beginning to the end, all you are is just an elf!”
“Sometimes crazy, sometimes kind, sometimes coming up with such means of torture, changing constantly, not like a demon nor a god, these are just the most typical characteristics of an elf.”
“Even though you have consumed enormous, enormous amounts of time and energy after entering into the Path of Demon, but the next and also the last path, the Path of Elf, is exactly where your nature lies in, so the result will sure make everyone surprised.”
In the blink of an eye, Han had already killed the Lovran brothers and started to pack up his spoils of the battle. At the same time Han turned his head and wondered why the system was not giving him a signal to leave. He had clearly passed the Wind Forest Volcano quest.
Han’s performance made 9527 wonder what to do. 9527 frowned and murmured to himself, “Based on your outstanding performance, promoting to star lord should definitely not be a problem. However, what would people say after they see your beasts’ performances?”
“You are of common birth, not a descendant of any god. However, you possess the talent and skills which most descendants of gods envy. Han, you should know that the tallest tree in a forest always end up being destroyed by the wind. The gods blow a strong wind, a strong hurricane which has destroyed numerous towering trees.”
“If I let them know your name right now, I would be basically killing you, but if I forbid you to push yourself forward, you would not get the title of star lord. What should I do?”
9527 rubbed his temple with his thick fingers, and thought for a while.
“That’s it. For now, I will keep you away from their attention, with your abilities, getting the title of star lord is just as easy turning your hand over, while some attention has already been drawn to you the last time at the border.”
“You have demonstrated extraordinary leadership skills in the battle at the border. The bunch of gods will not kill a boy only because of his leadership skill. However, this time you once again demonstrated excellent personal combat abilities.” 9527 said to himself.
9527 has made up his mind, he said to the screen in front him softly, ”Queen, delete all of Han’s data at the Wind Forest Volcano, final assessment: pass, but the title of star lord not granted.”
The system made a synthetic female sound. After that, all of Han’s data in the Wind Forest Volcano quest had been erased.
9527 stood up and paced back and forth in his dark data center. A thought suddenly came to his mind, he asked curiously, “Queen, check the database, what would happen if the superpower Void End breaks through the warlord-level?”
A short while after, the cold female voice responded, “Master, according to my search, in the history of the All Gods Corporation, no esper of the Void End abilitiy type has broken through warlord-level.”
“What!? There was never a God of Destruction of this type of superpower!?” 9527 was shocked, his fat body trembled.
Star lord city.
Jianjia left the conference room with his father, bored. Yanan Zhu followed closely.
Jianjia neither liked nor hated Yanan Zhu, he just did not care about him, everything would be the same either with or without him.
“Finally I could have got rid of those boring old guys. Dad, you came to star lord city for inspection, why bother also taking me? You know, I never liked your long-winded report.” Jianjia said while she lazily stretched herself.
Mr. Water, Jianjia’s father, sighed slightly and said, “Jianjia, as your father I do things for your own good. You will have to learn this stuff sooner or later. Look at yourself, staying in the star lord city all day even if I tried to throw you out. Please listen to me just once, leave here and go to the Galaxy City.”
Jianjia frowned, she then muttered, “I don’t feel like going other places, Galaxy City is even more boring than this place. I will definitely suffocate in boredom that’s just a matter of time.”
“By the way, you’ve had my company for the past few days, how is Han doing? Invite him over for dinner. Didn’t you say that he has the potential to become a commander of a legion or maybe even a higher level position?”
Mr. Water had not responded yet. Yanan Zhu following at the back said first, “I heard that Han went to the Wind Forest Volcano”
“The Wind Forest Volcano quest? Oh my! That’s a dangerous quest!” Jianjia was shocked, she immediately took out her micro-computer and started checking into details. At the same time she also blamed Yanan Zhu for not telling her about this earlier.
After Yanan Zhu saw that Jianjia cared so much about Han, he became furious. In the meantime, he remembered that he had already hired the Lovran brothers to take care of this so his mind settled down a bit. He then replied with a fake smile on his face, “Were you and uncle Water not listening to the work report? How dare I even to bother.”
“Go away, leave me alone!” Jianjia said in a bad mood.
“Behave yourself!” Mr. Water was fed up with Jianjia’s behavior. He apologized to Yanan Zhu, “Yanan, it was all my fault, Jianjia lost her mother when she was young, she is spoiled by me.”
“Dad, why are you telling an outsider this kind of stuff? “ Jianjia was a little bit angry.
Jianjia’s attitude was not only seen by Yanan Zhu’s eyes but it was also marked in his mind. He then said with a heart of malevolence, “Huh, let me see your face when you hear the news of Han’s death!”
“Holy, Han passed the Wind Forest Volcano quest! I told you he’s got quite some talent.” Jianjia said to her father proudly, Yanan Zhu, after heard of that, was extremely surprised.
“Unfortunately, even though Han passed the Wind Forest Volcano quest, he did not manage to get the title of star lord. How unlucky, I was thinking that may be if he could get the star lord title, I’ll also go grab myself one.” Jianjia added.
“For real?” Jianjia’s father, Mr. Water replied in a hurry, “If Han is going to Galaxy City, you will also go there?”
“I will consider it.” Jianjia said with a cute foxy look on her face.
Mr. Water immediately opened his micro-computer and muttered, “I’d have a look at the reason why Han passed the quest without a star lord title granted to him.”
As the only heir of the family, Jianjia’s unambitiousness was a real headache to her father. She wandered in the star lord city, which was of the lowest-level all year round. Mr. Water would not allow this to happen for any longer.
As soon as Jianjia said that if Han gets the title of star lord, she will also consider leaving here and go to Galaxy City which was one level higher, Mr. Water, who did not care about Han at all before, suddenly became interested in him. All in all, this was for the good of Jianjia.
Yanan Zhu was also nervously checking out information on his computer. He heard that Han was not dead and he wondered, he undoubtedly hired the Lovran brothers at a high price, how could they fail?
“No data! How could there be no data!? Get me the technology department. What have those idiots been doing all the time!” Mr. Water did not get Han’s data so he became very angry and even started cursing out loud.
Jianjia saw that Yanan Zhu and her father’s faces both looked upset. She wondered, “ This guy must be so sad knowing he did not get the star lord title, should I go see and comfort him?”
“How come I did not get the star lord title! I killed the fire drake, how could I not get the star lord title!? This is so frustrating!” Han started cursing once he arrived at 9527’s transfer station. “What are those bunch of bastards doing! Wasn’t it said that whoever slays the fire drake will definitely be promoted? What a bunch of jerks who could not even keep their promises!”
9527 kept his countenance, he held the silver fox in his palm, smiled and said, “Who told you that you will get the star lord title 100% of the time you slay a fire drake?”
“An…” Han was shocked, he frowned slightly, “An enemy.’
It now appeared to be that the Lovran brothers were Han’s enemies, Han also realized that there was something wrong.
9527 said, “That shall explain it, whoever slays the fire drake will be promoted is just a myth, the All Gods Corporation has never made an official announcement about that.”
“On the other hand, you know that the gods are really unpredictable, they promote whoever they want, they could not give you a promotion just because they don’t like you, how could there possibly be any rules or regulations for us to follow?
“Damn the All Gods!” Han cursed in a low voice, “Your bosses are all jerks.”
9527 was shocked, he put out a strange face and whispered to himself, “My bosses? Whatever, if that’s how you think.”
Han strode straight to the practice room.
9527 said curiously, “Are you going to do more exercise right after you get back from the battlefield? You are sure racing with time.”
Han waved his hand and said, “I am tired as hell, how can I even have any more energy to practice, it’s just that I feel like my Source Energy Index has increased a lot, I want to use the testing machine/”
“Your source energy increased a lot?” 9527 said to himself, “Han is now a quasi-warlord, he could become a warlord with some further progress.”
