Worlds’ Apocalypse Online - Chapter 1690 - Young master Gu's social debut
Chapter 1690: Young master Gu’s social debut
Gu Qing Shan lightly leapt down the gladiator ring.
The gladiators around him all sighed in relief.
Gu Qing Shan looked around a bit in surprise before shaking his head and followed a path to enter metal gates that lead further inside.
These Professionists were so weak that even without using Realm Force, they were no match for him.
Fine, there’s nothing interesting about bullying these people.
As he walked further along the path, he gradually couldn’t hear the commotion outside any longer.
“Gu Qing Shan, now that the matches are over, what are we going to do?” Laura impatiently asked him.
“I suppose it’s time for me to obtain a new identity” Gu Qing Shan replied.
After he walked along the narrow path for a little bit, someone came to lead him into a certain room.
Several Professionists wearing black suits with experienced expressions sat behind a counter while observing him carefully.
“Please sit down” someone said.
Gu Qing Shan sat down in front of them.
“Gu Qing Shan”
“Your strength far surpasses that of other Professionists, so we’ll skip the formalities and only ask you one question”
“Go ahead” Gu Qing Shan shrugged.
“Have you comprehended Realm Force?”
“May we ask what type of power that world system is?”
“I can’t answer that”
Everyone else exchanged glances.
It makes sense for the other party to not disclose their Realm Force’s unique characteristics, since no one would be willing to expose their secrets to someone else.
Especially when it’s a trump card like Realm Force.
The Professionist in the middle cleared his throat and continued: 「 Your grace’s strength had already surpassed that of normal people, so we’re not qualified to arrange you in any way. Only a spirit would be able to decide your grace’s headings now 」
Gu Qing Shan instantly became a bit cautious.
He could sense that the people sitting in front of him hadn’t comprehended Realm Force, so it was obvious that even in this evil world, Realm Force was a very advanced type of power.
That’s why he was relatively relaxed when facing these people.
But if the other party was a spirit from an evil world system, then that’s a very different story.
“Oh? I do feel very interested in this world’s spirits, after all, this is a world system that was part of the Dusty World” Gu Qing Shan commented.
The Professionists all appeared to be understanding.
One of them sighed: “Your grace had already bridged the gap of power and reached the realm that we all aspire towards, capable of directly entering Phase Realms to see spirits with your very eyes——— how extraordinary!”
He then took out an intricate alarm clock and placed it on the table.
“What is that?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
“A Phase Changer, it can summon a unique spirit that would bring your grace to a corresponding Phase Realm depending on your grace’s attributes” someone else explained.
Gu Qing Shan observed the alarm clock briefly.
“Wait a minute, there are five notches on his clock, were there actually five Phase Realms within this world system?” he asked.
“Indeed, the current world is the combination of five different world systems—— they were once all extremely powerful on their own, but still couldn’t resist the rampage of the Apocalypses and had no choice but to hide into the Dusty World” the Professionist sitting across from him answered.
Gu Qing Shan finally understood.
—-no wonder the esteemed lady of the Sacrificial Dance had said that I would be able to collect several world essence relics here.
『 Your grace Gu Qing Shan, please hold the Phase Changer tightly. The spirits will examine the evil attributes on you and determine where you would end up in 』 one person explained.
Gu Qing Shan picked up the alarm clock and held it in his hand.
He casually glanced up to see that all the Professionists in the room had aspiring gazes as they looked towards the alarm clock.
Everyone as well as the room itself started receding away from his vision.
Gu Qing Shan noticed that he had left the main world and was now standing in a void.
A deep voice laughed: 「 An assassin who arranged people’s heads into a pile? My place welcomes him 」
Some scenery started to appear clearly around him.
A Phase Realm had manifested in front of Gu Qing Shan’s vision.
He could now see a gloomy ancient castle and a butler in a black attire.
The butler was standing on the road, apparently waiting for him.
But before Gu Qing Shan could greet him, that world suddenly became blurry.
The deep void appeared a bit surprised and asked: 「 Oh? It was only a newcomer, how surprising that you would feel inclined to compete against me for him 」
A harrowing voice echoed: 「 It couldn’t be helped, the foul stench of blood in his hands awoke me 」
The deep voice asked: 「 Really now? How many lives had fallen at his hands? 」
「 The total number of kills of all of your assassin subordinates would still not be equal to the odd change he has 」the harrowing voice replied.
While they spoke, another Phase Realm slowly became clearer and manifested in front of Gu Qing Shan.
Gu Qing Shan could already see the surroundings——-
Mountains of corpses, rivers of blood, and a palace of bones.
But before he had completely entered this Phase Realm, the palace of bones suddenly became an illusion as well.
His vision became blurred as the world started receding away from him again.
The deep voice from before suddenly asked: 「 Your Phase Realm should be very suitable for him, so why did the old man act as well? 」
「 I don’t know, we need to ask him to know 」the harrowing voice answered.
Both of them went quiet.
At the same time, an old voice spoke up: 「 I had to come, after all, among the Phase Realms we have, there is another place that is much more suitable for him 」
「 Are you saying—– 」
「 Indeed, all acts of evil only contribute to the goal of becoming stronger! To gain more authority and more power! And I can sense that this person carries an unimaginable amount of wealth, he is the source of wealth itself! 」
While they spoke, images began to appear around Gu Qing Shan again, manifesting a world in front of him.
The old voice became more personable:
「 You must be Gu Qing Shan? 」
“I am” Gu Qing Shan replied.
「 Excellent, very excellent. Before we arrange for you to enter a specific world, you are qualified to enter Black City and enjoy all the ecstasy the infinite worlds have to offer 」the old voice told him.
“For that reason? Wasn’t I supposed to enter one of the two worlds from before?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
The old man answered: 「 You could have indeed done very well in the other two Phase Realms—— but quite obviously, you can make even more extraordinary contributions in Black City, as all of your actions can easily influence the world in an incomparably positive manner 」
“What can I do, actually?” Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but ask.
「 Can you spend money——– your wealth is so impressive that the only thing you need to do is stay in Black City and spend money—— the money and treasures you possess that cannot be completely spent would be able to promote the economy of the evil world! 」the old man explained.
“Economy?” Gu Qing Shan parroted these words, feeling a bit confused.
「 Indeed, money is the number one motivation for evil, and you are an envoy of endless wealth. So rather than having you kill people or reclaim land, it would be so much easier for you to spend money and directly cause changes—— gentlemen, what do you think? 」
The other two voices remained silent.
「 Then it is decided 」the old man concluded.
The images around him gradually became clearer.
This time, no spirit tried to interrupt it anymore.
Gu Qing Shan noticed that he was now standing on top of a tall building with a prosperous sprawling modern city under him.
An old man appeared behind him.
「 This is Black City, the place among the five Phase Realms that is meant to provide rest and relaxation 」the old man introduced him.
“All I have to do is spend money here?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
He could sense Realm Force emanating from the other party.
——-this is a spirit!
「 Indeed. First, please pay a small fee for your initial accommodations and arrangements, after that I won’t interfere with however you wish to use your money 」the old man replied.
Gu Qing Shan turned his ring and casually took out a gem.
The old man’s eyes lit up.
「 A Blue Tear of Spirits! This is a kind of gem that our Grand Evil world cannot produce, excellent! How very excellent! 」
He accepted the gem and smiled happily.
「 Mister Gu Qing Shan, I hope you will enjoy yourself here 」
After that, he prepared to leave.
“Please wait a moment, are there really no restrictions at all? Do I have some sort of mandatory mission?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
The old man smirked: 「 Please pay a consultation fee 」
Gu Qing Shan casually tossed another gem to him.
The old man accepted the gem, viewed it under the sun, then carefully put it away.
He answered with a happy expression: 「 Young master Gu, you’ve awakened Realm Force and become one of the strongest, but you are also the wealthiest person at the same time, so your life after this point will most likely be like this—— 」
「 Numerous Professionists will compete with one another to sell their lives for you. They need to dedicate their wits, blood, sweat, and tears, while you only need to pay money 」
「 Numerous women will compete to party with you. They need to dedicate their beauty and youth, while you only need to pay money 」
「 Numerous treasures and fun activities will be waiting for you to enjoy, all of which are highly interesting and would let you experience unprecedented things, while you only need to pay money——- 」
「 Even if you want us spirits to help you do something, as long as you pay the fees, we would not give up on the opportunity to earn some spare change 」
「 In short, you only need to spend money——- do you care about this little bit of money? 」
“No” Gu Qing Shan answered.
「 Correct. Money is like dirt and dust to you, but it is the pursuit of their entire lives 」
The old man turned around and slowly faded into the void of space.
He only left these words: 「 You are now one who stands at the very top of the Grand Evil world, enjoy yourself, as the world is your oyster 」
—–he had left.
The world returned to silence.
Gu Qing Shan remained standing on top of the building, still feeling a bit lost.
Laura shrugged: “What now? We wanted to rob this world blind, but they’re considering us the gold mine”
Gu Qing Shan calmly replied: “That spirit said that he had made the initial arrangements for me, so let’s take a look at what that is first”
“Hah, what’s so good about being a wealthy snob? This empress had never liked that kind of uninteresting life” Laura complained.
“Endure it for a bit” Gu Qing Shan consoled her.
The two of them didn’t have to wait very long.
A teardrop-shaped flying shuttle descended and stopped in front of Gu Qing Shan.
A blond beauty emerged from the flying shuttle and smiled while bowing to greet him: “I’ve received an order saying that young master Gu is having his social debut—– please enter the shuttle first”
Gu Qing Shan looked at her and asked: “You are—–”
“Your personal chauffeur, as well as your guide to everything in Black City—– all expenses paid” the beauty answered.
Gu Qing Shan casually flipped a coin to her, waited for her to catch it, then asked: “How much is gold worth here?”
“It’s a basic form of currency that can be used” the beauty answered.
“Very well, consider that ancient coin your tip”
The beauty smiled brightly and blinked sensually at him: “Ancient coins are worth a lot more compared to normal gold coins due to the history and civilization that they sustain, thank you young master Gu”
She waved her hand.
The shuttle door opened by itself.
Spacious seats, strong liquor chilled in ice buckets, five female flight attendants in uniform, as well as an ornamental show bird.
“Welcome, young master Gu!” the bird chirped.
One of the flight attendants lightly emerged and flew next to Gu Qing Shan.
Gu Qing Shan silently sensed the power fluctuations emanating from her body.
——this woman is a Professionist of not inconsiderable strength.
She smiled gently at Gu Qing Shan and lowered her body to lead the way:
“Young master Gu, please”
Gu Qing Shan entered the shuttle with her.
The shuttle door closed up, followed by resounding rhythmic music: [YO~ Yo~ evil Black City! Young master Gu is having his social debut, using his money to beat you all~]
Within the mix of electronic music and rap, one of the flight attendants called out: “Sisters, shake your hips——”
The shuttle instantly took off and started flying away.
