"They left? Did we really reject their proposition?" Li Yuxin asked while looking out from the minibus' rear window.
"Let's go. We'll leave this matter as it is for now," Jiang Liushi gave a casual answer and sat on the sofa.
Jiang Liushi didn't trust the current military figures. Of course, if they were to reward them handsomely, Jiang Liushi would gladly cooperate with them.
Suddenly, Jiang Liushi sprang up from the sofa.
"Ah? Brother Jiang, what happened?"
Jiang Liushi's sudden action shocked the others. He didn't respond to the question, but he walked toward Ying.
A moment ago the Starseed detected a particular source of energy fluctuations.
Even though the Starseed had detected energy fluctuations in the past, that one was extraordinary. What's even more perplexing was the source's distance; it was about 200 km away from them. In other words, the source was special!
"Brother Jiang, what kind of information did the Starseed transmit to you?" Ying asked.
"It informed me about a special source of energy fluctuations. If we can get our hands on it, we'll be able to unlock the MCV's third form," Jiang Liushi explained excitedly.
The MCV's second evolution let him transform the minibus into a mining truck. At the same time, the MCV's combat capability greatly increased. Jiang Liushi was eager to see the advantages the third evolution would bring him.
"About 200 km away… then, should we head over there now?" Ying asked.
"Don't worry. First, we should find about the situation toward that direction. We have to consider how we'll act and make plans carefully," Jiang Liushi answered.
It was a piece of cake to get information in Star City Base.
Jiang Liushi quickly drove his minibus to a mixed market and found a person who specialized in the transactions regarding information. It took only a pound of grain, and Jiang Liushi got detailed information about where he wanted to go.
Jiang Liushi was surprised by the information they got. Where they wanted to go wasn't a wild place, but a city named "Fallen City."
Star City Base's separatist forces, coupled with numerous survivors, were too powerful. They even created a city to fight against Star City's forces. One could imagine Fallen City's situation, just by its name. It was a city without law and order, or in layman's terms, a paradise for wicked people.
"No wonder the military is dead set on eliminating the warlords and separatists' forces. If they don't get rid of them quickly, then Star City's may cease to exist," Li Yuxin said with a surprised voice.
"According to my estimation, the current military can't control the situation at all," Jiang Liushi said with a map of Fallen City in his hands. After doomsday, humanity's dark side had been boosted.
"Fallen City's situation isn't so simple. According to the merchant who sold us the information, the most influential people in it aren't the warlords, but two survivors; a couple. The man goes by the name Dark Star, and the woman is called Blood Cloud. They're extremely mysterious, and they participated in Fallen City's construction. Even the military is extremely wary of them."
"Many of Star City's survivors have gone to Fallen City, as it's a paradise for evil. Are we really going to that city?" Ying asked.
"Yes. I'm curious about the special source of energy that the Starseed detected." Jiang Liushi said.
In a single-family villa…
At that moment, Xia Xun was like an angry kitten, telling her grandfather about Jiang Liushi's rude behavior and demands. Xia Yongfeng was silently listening to her description and couldn't help but laugh.
"Grandpa, why are you laughing?"
"Although those survivors are somewhat arrogant, they have real skills. However, you're right."
Xia Yongfeng proposed to cooperate with Shi Ying Squad because General Zhang was the one who had handpicked them. Furthermore, He Tianhu's members were very cunning, and only Shi Ying Squad could deal with their underhanded methods.
"Dear granddaughter, take it easy. He Tianhu is powerful, and even Jiang Liushi may die if he faces him. As long as He Tianhu is alive, Shi Ying Squad will come to find us on their own," Xia Yongfeng said.
Xia Xun shook her fist and said, "When that guy takes the initiative to come and find us, I'll teach him a lesson!" Xia Xuan imagined that scene and felt relieved.
However, the moment she finished speaking, suddenly a messenger knocked on the door.
"Commander, they have left Star City Base. It seems they're heading toward Fallen Ciτy!" A soldier said
Hearing the news, Xia Yongfeng was shocked.
Valvrave's corner; This arc will be full of shocks for the military ;p Third form, huh? Interesting xD
