Chapter 40: A Mysterious Person Who Also Wants to Kill Gu Changqing
After the battle between Gu Changqing and the armored monster, the entire coastal city was almost destroyed.
Not long after Gu Changqing and the others left…
A Divine Runemaster descended from the sky on the surface of the sea. The power of the sun radiated from the armor as lightning flashed around it. A pair of black wings grew on the back of the armor. The brutal aura from the aura caused the waves to surge.
His golden eyes shifted to the ruined city in the distance as he muttered under his breath, "What happened? Did a huge battle take place here? A battle that can destroy a city must involve a seventh-rank Divine Runemaster! Damn it! Does M Country already have a seventh-rank powerhouse?"
The newcomer was none other than Bogdan.
Although Bogdan did not know what was going on, his expression was solemn as he muttered to himself, "I have to go back and enter seclusion immediately. I won't come out until I reach the seventh rank!"
Bogdan felt a strong sense of urgency and did not stay for long.
Bogdan possessed the divine runes of the Sun God, the Thunder God, the Three-Headed Eagle, Koschei the Deathless, the Nine-Headed Dragon, and the Black God. They were all very powerful mythical beings. He was only able to survive their awakening because he had awakened the divine rune of Koschei the Deathless first. He had to die three times before he completed the awakening process. However, there was a limit on the number of times he could die and be revived with the divine rune of Koschei the Deathless. At the sixth rank, he could die seven times. After all, no one could be truly immortal.
Since Gu Changqing now knew one of the uses of the strange mark on his palm, who knew if the divine rune of Koschei the Deathless would soon belong to him?
There was also Lin Chen. If he dared to participate in the scheme, would the Emperor divine rune with endless potential also belong to him?
No matter what, Gu Changqing would not let those who made a move against him go. It was useless no matter who begged for mercy on their behalf.
In Athena's villa in M Country.
Gu Changqing was recuperating in a room at this moment, absorbing the grade-seven crystal core.
After an hour of healing, he slowly opened his eyes.
"The divine rune of Rahu, the Demon Ancestor, has 99 demon marks. Just one ancestral mark is so terrifying… This is insane. If I had known earlier, I'd get Pangu tattooed as well…"
The reason why Gu Changqing did not tattoo Pangu on his body was due to his worries that the karma would be too great. He was afraid he would be reduced to ashes before he could even wake up. After all, that was an existence that could split heaven and earth.
After healing his internal injuries, Gu Changqing entered the bathroom.
Half an hour later, Gu Changqing changed into a suit and went downstairs.
"Mr. Gu, how are your injuries?" James Kohler asked. He had been waiting in the hall all this time.
Athena was also in the hall. When she saw Gu Changqing, she stood up to greet him.
"It's fine," Gu Changqing replied nonchalantly. He took a seat on the couch and put a cigarette between his lips.
Upon seeing this, James Kohler took the initiative to light the cigarette for him. Although he was now the President of M Country, in this chaotic world where strength was the most important, the identity of president was useless. Everything depended on one's strength.
"Mr. Gu," Athena said in a low voice, "What do you think of the portal under the Bermuda Triangle and the creature you just killed that claimed to come from Hellstar?"
Gu Changqing took a deep puff of the cigarette before he said, "I don't think they can come here in large numbers for the time being. Otherwise, when I killed the monster earlier, they would've sent reinforcements. In this chaotic world, strength is absolute. Don't delay your cultivation because of various matters. Just leave it to your subordinates."
After that, Gu Changqing rose to his feet before he continued to say, "I'll be taking my leave now. Cultivate well."
Gu Changqing was not used to being in other people's land. Moreover, it would not take him long to fly back.
"Mr. Gu, don't you want to stay a day?" Athena asked. Her intentions were very clear when she looked at Gu Changqing. She thought that if he stayed tonight, she would definitely climb into his bed.
"No, I'm still not strong enough. I won't be available for the next four months," Gu Changqing said. He did not wait for a reply and activated the divine runes of the Asura, Qilin, Black Dragon, and the King of Hell as he walked out.
As soon as he stepped out of the door, he disappeared into the horizon.
His trip here was mainly for the crystal cores. Initially, he planned to stay for a few days. However, after encountering the creature from Hellstar, he was no longer in the mood. He planned to upgrade his King of Hell divine rune so that he could suppress all creatures within the Hell Domain. It was an extremely domineering divine power.
Meanwhile, James Kohler said as he watched Gu Changqing leave, "Without him, we would've been finished… I'm going to hand over a few matters and go into seclusion as well."
Athena nodded. "We have to be at the seventh rank at least to be able to protect ourselves."
The monster from Hellstar they encountered today made them feel extremely powerless. With this, their thirst for power grew even more.
In the capital of the Nine Region Empire.
In the Lin family's villa.
Lin Yueyao finally returned, and the three siblings were finally reunited.
Lin Chen was playing with Gu Yanyan when his phone rang. He rubbed her head affectionately as he said, "Yanyan, Uncle is going to answer the phone, okay?"
"Okay!" Gu Yanyan nodded and ran to find her mother. She had slept on the plane and was no longer sleepy.
Seeing that it was an unknown number, Lin Chen answered the call and asked, "Who is it?"
"Hello, Alliance Leader Lin!" a young man said.
"What do you want? Get straight to the point. I don't have time to waste with you. You must have some status to obtain my number," Lin Chen said.
"I want to join forces with you to kill Gu Changqing. What do you think?" the other party said bluntly.
Upon hearing this, Lin Chen went upstairs. Since the person dared to say he wanted to kill Gu Changqing, the other party had to be a fool or a powerhouse.
After entering his room, Lin Chen said, "Interesting. How do you plan to kill him?"
"I'm stronger than you. Although your Emperor divine rune has endless potential, you have yet to reach the thirteenth rank. Before you completely awaken the divine rune, you're still no match for met at the same rank. I also have many powerful people under my command. It's just that I don't have the confidence to act alone," the other party said confidently, "If you don't believe me, we can meet and discuss this. Imperial Sky Hotel, Room 508."
The other party seemed to know quite a lot about Lin Chen's Emperor armor. He even knew that the Emperor divine rune would awaken its ultimate form at the thirteenth rank.
Lin Chen smiled, "You've successfully aroused my curiosity. Wait for a moment. I'll come over now."
"Come quickly. I'll wait for you," the other party said before ending the call.
"So many ruthless people want to kill Gu Changqing," Lin Chen said with a soft chuckle as he put his phone away.
When Lin Chen went downstairs, Lin Yueyao asked, "Brother, it's so late, and you're still going out?" 𝓯𝓻𝒆𝒆𝙬𝒆𝓫𝓷𝓸𝒗𝒆𝙡.𝓬𝓸𝓶
"I'm going to meet an old friend," Lin Chen said before he quickly left.
