Worlds’ Apocalypse Online - Chapter 1380 - Clash
Chapter 1380: Clash
Among the lively sound of music, Gu Qing Shan and Crow walked up to the counter and sat down.
“Broken through?” Crow asked.
He handed a shot glass to Gu Qing Shan while slightly twisting his body, which displayed a hint of femininity.
——he’s keeping up his act even now, seems like Crow had prepared quite a bit during the past while.
Gu Qing Shan silently thought.
He accepted the shot glass and took a sip.
“That’s right, it took quite a bit of time too, almost 10 full days” Gu Qing Shan replied.
“Apocalypse Era, gaining strength is always a good thing——- right, have you returned to the Guild yet?” Crow continued asking.
“I did, got various Titled Hitman supplies out of it, and even a big bag of money” Gu Qing Shan replied.
Crow laughed and said: “As soon as they came into contact with the Saint Spirit world’s world spirit, it would have confirmed your involvements in defeating the Plague Apocalypse, so of course you received an ample reward for it”
“The money was certainly quite a bit” Gu Qing Shan admitted.
He was quite pleased about this as well.
In short, he won’t have to worry about not having money to use for a very long time.
“Please” Crow chuckled: “At the time, the entire allied army assumed that it was an Unlivable Apocalypse, they were so scared that they almost ran away shitless, but instead you brought a completely new powerful world to the space vortex. I’m telling you, no reward would have been enough for that”
“Why is everyone so excited about that?” Gu Qing Shan was a bit confused.
Crow raised his glass and said: “It’s your treat today”
“Sure” Gu Qing Shan replied.
The two of them cheered.
Crow then explained: “Just look, you and I successfully broke through after staying in that world for a short amount of time”
“We did” Gu Qing Shan nodded.
He now understood.
Sure enough, Crow continued: “Now that the world had undergone rejuvenation and become a powerful world fused from three extremely powerful worlds, it would only grow even stronger in the future”
“Such a powerful world is beneficial for everyone involved, as long as they’re allowed to travel there and cultivate themselves, they would eventually be able to advance as well”
“Then after the world fusion is over, let’s make another trip there” Gu Qing Shan suggested.
At this time, the door of the bar opened as a handsome man in glasses walked in.
“You two sure came early” Yu Juan commented.
Crow handed him a shot glass: “You arrived late, perverted duck”
Yu Juan didn’t respond to that and turned to Gu Qing Shan: “Last time, you donated the trafficker leader’s bounty to the Church, right?”
“That’s right, Crow was the one who killed him” Gu Qing Shan replied.
“The Church had put him on their wanted list for a very long while, but they didn’t expect for anyone to actually cash it in——– so here, take this”
Yu Juan handed two halos to Gu Qing Shan and Crow, explaining to them how to use it.
Crow took it, casually pressed it a few times and made the halo glow green.
As Crow put the halo above his head, it began to hover in place.
“You like this color?” Yu Juan seemed a bit doubtful.
“Not me, a certain girl likes this color” answering him, Crow also gave Gu Qing Shan a wink.
Gu Qing Shan understood that he was talking about Fei Yue.
“These are your rewards from the Church, you’re both now considered to be high-ranking believers” Yu Juan explained.
Gu Qing Shan held the circular lightbulb and hesitated a bit.
Yu Juan continued: “While wearing this hovering circular lightbulb, as long as you don’t pick a fight with the City Lord’s manor, you’ll basically be untouchable in Void City”
“That impressive?” Gu Qing Shan asked with interest.
“That’s right, whenever a fight breaks out where there’s a halo, the angels will directly teleport there and attack regardless of the price to pay—— no one is willing to fight against the angels”
Crow affirmed: “This is true, the angels of the Splendor Saint Church had never easily forgiven anyone who bullied their believers. In fact, they’ve declared several infamous great wards because of this”
Gu Qing Shan fell into thought.
—-am I really going to put this halo above my head whenever I fight?
If there’s an occasion that I need to personally act, the Splendor Saint Church wouldn’t be able to interfere regardless.
Yu Juan then handed two lists over and explained:
“This is the church’s list of contributions, if you donate enough money, you’d even have the right to directly summon an angel”
Gu Qing Shan took one of the lists and saw that his codename was written on it.
Crow took out a coin and put it into his list.
Right away, his donation amount written on it was increased by one coin.
“To ask for wealth so openly, is the Church in that much money trouble?” Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but ask.
“Not sure, but it’s a fact that the Church had always been interested in wealth” Yu Juan shrugged.
The door of the bar was opened again.
A group of people wearing yaksha masks came in.
Their leader wore a full set of black armor and a spear in his hand, who slowly entered into the bar and stood still in the middle.
The other wraiths swiftly went to the other bar patrons.
It was unknown what means they used, but the patrons swiftly stood up one by one and left the bar.
Very quickly, other than Gu Qing Shan, Crow, and Yu Juan, the only people left in the bar were the wraiths.
At this time, the black-armored wraith turned towards Gu Qing Shan.
“Long time no see, Dragon King of Atrocity Jail”
Gu Qing Shan nodded: “I remember you, Wraith Might, You Tian Gui”
This Wraith Might was someone that the Wraith realm sent out to investigate the death of Elder Du.
He originally managed to find Gu Qing Shan, but due to the ominous demons’ sudden descent, he couldn’t help but escape.
You Tian Gui walked in front of the bar counter, stood against Gu Qing Shan, then said:
“Dragon King, I want to talk with you for a little bit”
“Have a drink, then we’ll talk” Gu Qing Shan handed him a drink.
“Thank you” You Tian Gui accepted the shot glass in surprise and remained silent for a bit.
The glass in his hand was filled with a crimson red liquid that looked almost like it was burning, yet it was cold to the touch, which made anyone feel like taking a sip.
Gu Qing Shan raised his own glass.
You Tian Gui could only raise his glass as well and took a sip.
“Sure enough, excellent liquor” You Tian Gui praised.
The bartender cut in: “Gentlemen, this is the most expensive drink in our store, one that Dragon King of Atrocity Jail had specifically ordered when he saw you enter”
“I hope that you can make peace in war, and not cause any trouble in the bar”
You Tian Gui glanced at the bartender and said: “You people sure know a lot”
“The bar has always been a place where information travels fast” Gu Qing Shan grinned.
You Tian Gui turned to Gu Qing Shan with his mind full of thoughts.
From the moment I stepped into the bar, my momentum had been continuously accumulating. Once everyone was chased outside and I walked up to him, it should have reached a peak.
At this point, I became like a tense arrow ready to fire, constantly preparing for a sure-kill attack.
—–but he handed me a drink.
If I didn’t accept that drink and at least say a few words, I truly wouldn’t have been able to properly attack.
Furthermore, without knowing, I’ve already been inflicted by some sort of hex that remains without activating.
Without a sign or warning, the initiative had been shifted.
You Tian Gui remained silent for a few moments, then suddenly decided to use a different method to face this newly-promoted Titled Hitman.
“Dragon King, how much do you know about our Wraith realm?” he asked.
Gu Qing Shan replied: “You are too closed-off, I don’t know much about you at all—– but I know that you’re all humans, so why must you wear those yaksha masks?”
“The masks can grant us power” You Tian Gui replied.
Gu Qing Shan chuckled: “Then why do your masks all have varying expressions, some crying and some laughing?”
You Tian Gui said: “Because certain emotions are necessary as a guide to achieve a certain effect with our techniques, or even achieve certain results”
“But those are the masks depicting you crying or laughing, not your true selves” Gu Qing Shan commented.
“It doesn’t matter who it is, it is enough for the masks to display them, and we only care about results” You Tian Gui replied.
Gu Qing Shan sighed and said: “How regretful”
“What is regretful?” You Tian Gui asked.
Gu Qing Shan replied: “Crying and laughing are only the symbols, if you treat them as tools, you will never be able to sense just how much suffering is behind a smile, and how much despair lies behind a tear”
“These are the true sources of a cultivator’s power”
You Tian Gui paused, then suddenly grinned and said: “You seem to understand us quite well, have you been constantly studying our Wraith realm?”
“Not at all” Gu Qing Shan replied.
You Tian Gui continued: “You killed Elder Du didn’t you, Dragon King?”
Gu Qing Shan took a sip of his liquor and said: “You need proof for everything in Void City; if you just spout nonsense like——-”
You Tian Gui suddenly cut him off and declared: “It was you who killed Elder Du, I know that for a fact, and I’ve made the preparations for this”
The atmosphere of the bar suddenly became as sharp as razor blades.
Every wraith in the bar had drawn their weapons, some even had talismans ready in their hands.
Gu Qing Shan put the shot glass down and looked at him.
You Tian Gui relaxed his hand and muttered: “The ominous demons cannot constantly protect you, Dragon King, I suggest that you surrender, then you might manage to stay alive”
Gu Qing Shan silently smiled.
“We’re doing this?” Crow silently sent his voice.
“…No” Gu Qing Shan replied.
It’s… not yet time.
My goal is to enter the Wraith realm, find the Delimitation Divine Sword, resolve the threat looming over Tomb of Myriad Beasts, then reach the truth.
With that in mind, Gu Qing Shan silently took out the circular lightbulb, turned it white and placed it above his head.
Seeing him do that, Crow and Yu Juan both took out their respective halos and put it above their heads as well.
Crow turned his halo pink, while Yu Juan turned it red.
The three of them looked at the wraiths with three lights above their heads.
The colors pink, red, and white illuminated the entire bar.
Yu Juan chanted a short incantation:
“One, two, three, go~”
Instantly, like a disco light, the three halos began to blink systematically.
The sharp atmosphere was broken again.
The music, the light, a bar with everyone’s attention on him, this was nothing but the perfect opportunity, Gu Qing Shan suspected that if the Sacrificial Dance wasn’t sleeping, he might have already begun dancing.
You Tian Gui looked at the halo above Gu Qing Shan’s head, then at Gu Qing Shan himself.
This was an angel’s halo.
Anyone who dared to attack those carrying an angel’s halo within Void City would be met with instant retaliation from the angels.
Gu Qing Shan raised his glass towards You Tian Gui again.
“How regretful, I actually do have 24/7 protection”
