Chapter 885: 885

Chapter 885: The Connection That Crossed Over Space-Time

Gu Qing Shan slowly flew across the sky .


On his way, he deliberately conducted short investigations on his surroundings to discover various marks of battle .

This was an all-out war that stretched from the cities to the outskirts and even forests, leaving countless places in ruins .

This world’s forces clearly retaliated with all they had, but their opponents were unfortunately far above their expectations .

Gu Qing Shan saw a mountain in this way .

Some sort of power had struck a gigantic hole through the mountain and bore all the way to the ground below

There were also various broken Mechs and human corpses at the scene .

Gu Qing Shan landed, extracted the black boxes from each Mech that he could, and went on his way again .

After 20 minutes, he reached the military research facility .

From above, all he could see was the dried-up charred ground of the facility and collapsed structures .

The broken wrecks of various planes could be seen strewn all over the runway .

The intense thunderstorm had also reached his place, showering what remained of this place in heavy rainfall .

Gu Qing Shan landed .

He walked into the Mech maintenance area and used a telekinesis hand seal .

The scattered debris inside the workshop was picked up and swiftly dumped outside .

Gu Qing Shan walked inside .

The broken remains of machinery in front of him were moved by an invisible force and made way for him .

After scanning it through with his inner sight, Gu Qing Shan briefly understood the situation of the workshop .

“Quite a few things can still be repaired, but power has already been cut . The maintenance robotic arms aren’t able to move”

“Not a big problem”

Gu Qing Shan jumped onto the Mech maintenance platform and waved his hand .

A large maintenance-use robotic arm that was about 2 meters wide and 9 meters long in size hovered in front of him .

Gu Qing Shan located the device’s power line and cut open the rubber casing to expose the metal wires below .

He then reached his hand out to grab the open wires .

Tick tick tick!

A mechanical sound rang .

The large mechanical arm twitched .

Gu Qing Shan had turned his Elemental Lightning spirit energy into a constant flow of electricity that conformed to this world’s electrical standards[1], using it to power the mechanical arm .

“Good, now I need to repair the entire hazard recorder reading device, if they weren’t damaged this much, I wouldn’t need to go through all this trouble, I need to replace almost every component here…” Gu Qing Shan muttered to himself .

He began the repair .

He single-handedly designed these Assault Mech’s entire system and structure, so it wasn’t that hard for him to repair this device, in fact, it wasn’t that much different from performing a basic exercise task in school .

Time slowly passed .

After 40 minutes, the hazard recorder reading device was fully repaired .

Gu Qing Shan put the mechanical arm down and swiftly made his way to the reading device .

He supplied it with electricity as he did before with one hand while inserting a black box into the device with the other .

The device started up .

Gu Qing Shan operated the device with one hand and quickly extracted the recordings within the black box .

The hazard recorder reading device projected a screen of light right in front of him .

The recording was only static at first but slowly stabilized .


Gu Qing Shan saw an entire squadron of Mechs .

A voice arrived:

[Fox One, calling Iron Rhino squad]

[Iron Rhino squad here . Ready to receive your orders Sir]

[The aliens are attacking the congress building, please send help immediately]

[Received, over!]

The Mech squadron began to move .

They flew forward at full speed, went past the burning and chaotic city below, and arrived in front of the congress building .

The scene of the recording moved to the sky .

A man wearing a black robe was floating in the air .

He had a burning flame in his hand .

[Foolish non-believers, let me borrow the power of the great Death God to show you all, just how feeble and powerless all of you are in front of the Holy Church of Death]

As he threw the flame forward, it quickly magnified inside the screen .

Boom

The world was plunged into boiling magma and fire .

Desperate cries and screams of pain resounded without end .

The scene on the screen was tossed up to the sky, turned several times in the air before it was tossed back down to the ground .

The screen went black .

The recording of the black box ended here .

Gu Qing Shan was shocked for a long while .

Black robe, Death God, Holy Church of Death .

This was one of the seven Holy Churches of the Strife Zones .

Who gave them the courage to invade the Earth World?

The Earth Creator’s power isn’t something that Divinities can go again!

He felt a thick fog obscuring his mind .

Gu Qing Shan took that black box out and put another one inside .

The screen lit up again .

[All mechs, ready to engage]

[Roger!]

The Mechs began to run forward .

A soft female voice resounded: [Power of the Mystic, devote your power and serve the God of Mysteries]

Following this voice, something in the air let out a sharp cry as it bombarded the squadron of Mechs below .

The screen shook nonstop .

Then faded to black .

Gu Qing Shan went silent for a short moment before he took this black box out .

That was a follower of the God of Mysteries .

He then proceeded to put every black box inside the device one by one .

All seven Holy Churches appeared at least once, not a single one missing .

Which means, the ones who initiated the destruction of the Earth World were the seven Holy Churches of the Strife Zones?

What exactly is going on?

Gu Qing Shan jumped down from the maintenance platform, grabbed the maintenance-use mechanical arm again, and headed for the center of the military research facility .

This place had practically been leveled .

Perhaps it was because of their arrogance and contempt of this world’s capabilities, or perhaps the Divine Officer who destroyed this place didn’t really understand technology, but a lot of the cables and devices here weren’t destroyed too thoroughly .

Gu Qing Shan spent a few hours and managed to fix the entire central processing system of this facility .

Using the same way he infiltrated this world’s national network system the previous time, he cracked open the national defense system .

Soon enough, the computer connected to the central national security database, where he downloaded the data recorded within the orbital satellites and security cameras .

This nation’s central security database seemed to have been hidden in a bunker several thousand meters underground, kept in a top-secret state .

When the facility was constructed, those associated with its construction lost their lives in various unexpected accidents one by one .

And this world quickly forgot about them .

Gu Qing Shan believed that all of this was actually the Earth Creator’s preparation for something .

Unfortunately, it still hadn’t returned from the Age of Old .

Only a few people of this world’s original inhabitants knew about the existence of this database .

Despite the difficulties that this world went through, at least this database managed to survive intact .

Gu Qing Shan began to observe the recorded war process .

This was a war with destruction as its goal .

The Earth World that had lost its creator could only face destruction against the seven Holy Churches of the Strife Zones .

It was a ruthless and merciless slaughter .

Gu Qing Shan watched each recording without changing his expression .

At some point, he paused the footage .

He saw a familiar face .

The young girl with crimson flowing hair who wielded a long black scythe .

“Anna”

Gu Qing Shan muttered .

Anna also participated in this world .

Gu Qing Shan stared at the young girl on the screen for a long time, trembling .

This can’t be right .

Anna isn’t someone who enjoys bullying the weak, why would she appear in this killing hell?

Gu Qing Shan quickly operated the panel to choose all the footage that contained Anna and watched them all at once .

Anna wasn’t part of the fighting .

Her job was to pick out talented people that are worth being nurtured and bring back to the Holy Church .

Occasionally, she would try to stop the other Holy Church’s slaughter, only to be met with ridicule .

As Gu Qing Shan watched the footage, he felt more and more curious .

“Strange, since when did you learn to suppress your anger? This isn’t like you…”

He whispered and continued watching the footage of Anna .

Very quickly, a certain footage caught Gu Qing Shan’s attention .

On the night before Anna left this world, she came alone to this nation’s capital city and went straight to the capital airport .

The airport was full of corpses, not a single person left alive .

Both the people of this world and the people of the seven Holy Churches wouldn’t take any notice of this useless location .

Over half the airport had already been destroyed, leaving only a few cameras running .

Anna quickly went into the airport’s Mech maintenance area .

She stood there, pacing back and forth while muttering something .

Gu Qing Shan’s heart jumped .

This was a place that I had been when I came to this world .

I created a series of Mech here that resolved the undead problem and caught the Earth Creator’s interest .

But that already happened over a year ago, how could Anna know that I was ever here?

And why did she come here?

She wouldn’t have been able to see me regardless!

On the footage, Anna placed something in a secluded location .

Unfortunately, the security camera wasn’t too clear, and it couldn’t record voices like the black boxes could, so Gu Qing Shan couldn’t tell what she put there, nor hear anything she said .

At this point, several people from the seven Holy Churches dashed in .

They were obviously prepared, so they immediately began to question Anna .

Anna simply shook her head and refused to explain anything no matter how much they asked .

Those people couldn’t do anything to her .

All of a sudden, a Divine Officer summoned a cluster of flame and abruptly pressed his hand against the ground .

The entire footage went dark .

Gu Qing Shan felt tense and quickly switched the footage to another camera at the airport .

Within the deep shroud of darkness, the Mech maintenance center was abruptly plunged into an intense explosion .

Several figures appeared from the explosion and landed on the ground outside .

Anna also landed without being injured .

Gu Qing Shan sighed in relief .

Anna turned around to look at the destroyed Mech maintenance center and became distraught .

Whatever she left in there, it had already been destroyed in that blast .

Anna’s eyes went red, drew her long black scythe out of thin air, and charged towards those people .

The people were briefly stunned before they realized she really wanted to kill them, quickly turned around and ran with pale expressions on their faces .

Anna chased after and killed the person who destroyed the maintenance facility first .

The footage stopped here .

On the next day, Anna could be seen dejectedly leaving the Earth World .

After watching through everything, Gu Qing Shan fell into thought .

Anna must know that I had been there before, otherwise, there was no other way to explain why she was here .

Anna left something in a secret location .

This seemed a bit confusing .

But Gu Qing Shan believed that Anna wouldn’t do something meaningless .

Unfortunately, she was found out .

And they destroyed all of her preparations .

Gu Qing Shan sighed .

This way, I would also have no way to find out what exactly Anna did .

He went silent briefly .

A thought flashed through his mind .

Wait a minute .

Gu Qing Shan realized something .

He thought about it, then confirmed that it could be done .

After that, he stayed to rest at this abandoned research center for the rest of the day .

After all, he already went through so much, even he needed rest .

For the next few days, Gu Qing Shan specifically made a trip to the desert and found the bunker of the national database .

Unfortunately, there wasn’t any left-over preparation that the Earth Creator left behind .

Gu Qing Shan wasn’t discouraged and stayed in the desert to practice his swordsmanship as well as reorganizing the cultivation experience and scriptures that he obtained in the Age of Old .

Without issue, 10 days went by .

Gu Qing Shan then set off and headed to the capital city airport .

He came to the Mech maintenance center that had been thoroughly burnt to a crisp and stood in the middle of the wreck .

With a wave of his hand .

He grabbed the Heaven sword .

Oong!

Secret Art, [Drawn Shadow]!

Black sword images erupted from where he stood like a blooming flower, quickly filled the entire Mech maintenance bay, and even reached a bit further than that .

The endless wave of sword images destroyed the wreck of the structure even more thoroughly .

A split second later .

The Mech maintenance bay returned to how it was, completely intact!

Gu Qing Shan held the Heaven sword and looked around the area .

Following what he saw, he came to where Anna had hidden the item and reached his hand inside .

He then pulled something out!

Indeed, after 10 days of wait, [Chaotic Flow] had finally cooled down .

[Chaotic Flow: When any entity is struck by the Heaven sword, you can have that entity skip through its current point in time to any point in time that you wish]

[Note: Activating this ability will require you to expend an amount of Soul Points proportional to that entity’s strength]

[Special note: Each time you use Chaotic Flow, you must wait for 10 days until you can use this power again]

Gu Qing Shan had once again used this ability to bring the Mech maintenance bay back to the state before its destruction .

[1] In case somebody doesn’t know, there is a different electrical standard for every country even in our world that sometimes make it difficult for electrical appliances in one country to be used in another country due to the difference in voltage and frequency, google “electrical standards” for more details .
