Chapter 830: Lurk 2

“According to the latest intel, there are two stronger ones among the
Bright Mechs which possess similar strengths to those of the
Black-Clothed Generals. Furthermore, the Great Light Mechs possess a much
stronger strength that could possibly be categorized in the realm of
level six. Even the academy was considering mobilizing the Instructor
Squad to attack them.”
“Level six…” Medero lowered her head. “Promoting from level five
to level six has a very crucial threshold. It would be impossible to
attain level six without inheriting a Mech, and if that were the case,
the opponent’s body and Willpower definitely plays a huge role.”
“Indeed. We are currently taking steps to gather more intel. An
Inherited Mech would have involved a lot of regions and it’s impossible
for them to appear out of nowhere.”
“Update me as soon as you have any results.”
Even Medero had lost her cool as the Inherited Mech was involved, as that
was a demarcation line for a Pilot. Any pilots who were level five and
below were just Model Mechs where the Willpower and Pilots were
separated. After attaining level six, the Pilots would merge with the
Mech and fuse into a terrifying state, and the differences in strength
would be drastically far apart.
“Even though it looks like it’s only one level apart, only people of
our level are able to understand the difference in strength and the
difficulty in attaining such strength. We’re lucky that the Great Light
Mech decided to not go on a killing spree. Did he not show his full
strength? What’s the point of that then? There’s definitely a huge
motive for them to infiltrate into Blackboard Region!” Medero was lost
in her deep thoughts.
“Twelve Flying Dragon Fist!”
Garen punched with only one of his hands. Many afterimages of his fist
landed on Celine’s elite bodyguard.
Twelve holes were punched through the bodyguard’s white suit by these
densely packed punches, revealing his undershirt. He was able to render
the bodyguard helpless with pure air pressure as he fell unconscious to
“Twelve Flying Dragon Fist!” a similar roar could be heard behind
Garen. That was Celine. This girl didn’t seem to behave like a girl at
all as she sprinted towards Garen in her high-strength alloy wire
clothing as she mimicked Garen’s battle skills.
She took the opportunity to flank him while Garen was dealing with the
Garen turned around and countered the punches with his other hand.
“Too slow, and you lack strength!”
Boom boom boom boom…
The punches clashed against each other and Celine was pushed back,
sliding on the ground as if she was a deflated ball…
“The essential of the Flying Dragon Fist is that it can react to the
course of the battle at any given moment. Once the opponent has lost his
momentum to any of the punches, you can turn these feint punches into
actual punches. This same concept can be used on Mechs during battle as
well, which is also the basis of my teaching to you.”
Garen walked towards Celine confidently and reached out his hands as he
attempted to pick her up.
“An opening!!” Celine laughed as she released her Twelve Flying
Dragon Fist, where all twelve punches were aiming at Garen’s weak
point, the armpit.
Garen gently moved to the side as he easily avoided these afterimages.
However, Celine unexpectedly changed her course of attack and slapped
onto Garen’s waist.
“Interesting,” Garen was stunned that he was touched by a beginner
when he’d let his guard down. Although it was an ambush, it was a very
Although he wasn’t very adept in the arts of evading and quick
reaction, he was still a top-class martial artist.
“Fuck! It’s so tough! It’s hurts!!!” Celine immediately felt that
something was wrong when she hit Garen with all her might. Her palm was
swollen and red immediately. “How do you even get this kind of tough
“I’m your master. Don’t you think I should have something hidden
under my sleeve?” Garen laughed. “According to our promise, I will
only teach you the basics of martial arts and Twelve Flying Dragon Fist.
How you develop in the future will depend entirely on you.”
Combining his physical attributes, which were twice as high as a typical
person’s, and the simple theory of Qigong, he was able to harden his
skin to a certain degree to easily counter against Celine’s futile
“Skills under your sleeve? I like it! I want to learn!” Celine’s
eyes were glowing. This person was a martial arts fanatic and would
immediately hop up and down the moment she heard something that
interested her. In an instant, she pounced to Garen’s side. “Teach
me! Just let me know what you want in return!”
“These things are useless in Mechs. Why do you want to learn
them?”Garen said hopelessly.
“That’s true…” Celine was disappointed. “Whatever. I think
I’m more suited to the Willpower Martial Art.”
“Willpower Martial Art is the strongest battle skill for a pilot,”
“However, the good bits are the abilities that are derived from the
Willpower itself. If their martial arts are of equal level, then these
abilities will decide the victor of the battle,” Celine shook his head.
“While Willpower Abilities are very powerful, you shouldn’t look down
on martial arts,” Garen frowned as he felt that Celine’s concept was
“There are many strong pilots with powerful Willpower Abilities such as
Frozen Wing, Fiery Storm, and even Phantom Superimpose, Prediction.
Furthermore, rumor has it that there are even stronger ones, such as
traveling through space and attacking or defending against their
opponents with dimensional shards,” Celine looked in another direction.
“Travelling through space…” Garen was stunned as well. As
Nonosiva’s level was too low, he didn’t have information regarding
the scenarios above him. Now that Celine had told him about their
prowess, he finally understood the true strength of the Willpower arts.
“These things are too far away from us so let’s not think about them.
What else do you have that can be applied to Mechs. Teach me, teach
me!” Celine was holding onto Garen’s hand as she kept shouting. Since
she was in her tight body attire, her breast and slim waist were sticking
tightly onto Garen’s body, as if she was a spoiled child.
Their positions looked rather sexual as Celine’s height was only
slightly shorter than Garen. Even the bodyguard had quietly left the
training room as he closed the door.
“My path is different than yours so there are very limited theories
that I can teach you, and even fewer can be applied to Mechs,” after
Garen had achieved level one Willpower, he was thinking if he should
increase his absorption rate. However, this would naturally bring some
trouble to him. There would definitely be someone who would try to pull
him down once his techniques had further improved. On the other hand,
Celine’s household would be a bridge to the outer world, where he could
complete his breakthrough.
Celine herself didn’t place money as her first priority. When
interacting with her, she seemed to be very interested in martial arts
and this meant that there shouldn’t be any issue with cooperating with
Garen was considering if he should deepen his partnership with her.
“Celine, I have a feeling that I will have a breakthrough in Willpower
so I feel like traveling about outside, but…”
“What’s wrong? If you want to go out, just go. There’s nothing to
worry about,” Celine released Garen unhappily after realizing that he
had changed the topic.
“Ever since there’s been a new breakthrough in my technique, I’ve
felt that I’ve too many shares on my end. Hence… I plan to reduce the
shares in my hand. Can you help me find a suitable candidate?” Garen
If he were to increase his production of this high energy powder, Garen
knew that he would not be able to hold on to forty percent of his share.
“This might be a problem,” seeing that he’d decided to discuss an
important matter, Celine had become serious as well. “We, the Veron
Household, may be able to absorb this. How much more can you increase
Garen knew that the Veron Household had networked themselves to the upper
levels without any issues as they held a considerable amount of
authority. During this period of interaction with Celine, he’d
suspected that the Veron Household might possess an Inherited Mech, which
was a level six elite. It wouldn’t even be a problem for them to live
well over hundreds of years. According to Celine, the pilot would fuse
with the Mech once they reached level six. Their body would evolve
together with the Mech and enter a completely different realm. Hence the
stage a level six pilot stood upon was vastly different from those below,
as their life, lifespan, physical attributes would all increase
After calculating the production rate in detail mentally, Garen estimated
the amount that he needed to exhaust. Now that he was able to stand
firmly and could improve his strength at a faster pace, he made his
“Approximately ten times or more than the current production rate!”
“Ten times!” Celine’s eyes were opened wide. “That nets you tens
of millions per month! What the fuck!! That’s my annual
“Your expenditure is that huge!?” Garen was stunned as well.
“Yes. During this period of learning martial arts with you, I’ve
returned last month and eliminated a branch household’s candidate so
our ranking has increased. Heh.” Celine was very proud of herself.
“Your household has branches?” Garen couldn’t help but feel that
the Veron Household was quite mysterious.
“To be precise, we are the branch household and the main household is
one of the fifteen households of the Mother Planet Federation,” Celine
said with a slight degree of arrogance. “This profit is too huge and I
don’t dare to take up your offer as this involves a change in the
market and will affect the original values of the share market. We alone
would not be able to absorb such a huge amount.”
“Then who do you think is able to take up such an amount?” Garen
“The Blackboard Region will definitely be affected, as this production
rate would definitely catch the attention of the higher-ups. After all,
these are military resources,” Celine had gradually calmed down. “I
think… you’re not on the right path. Perhaps you can communicate with
the higher-ups of the academy with this technology since you’re already
on the academy’s radar. Someone has already caught wind of your
“Communicate with the higher-ups? Who should I contact? Minister
Britney?” Garen wasn’t familiar with these people. After knowing how
troublesome this issue was, he was considering if he should go to the
rainbow stone’s production area alone to absorb everything at once to
avoid all the complicated issues. However, this would attract
everyone’s attention after leaving behind all the high energy powder.
In addition, this was a good way to earn money as well, so he didn’t
want to throw everything down the drain.
He didn’t need to force himself to improve drastically in such a short
amount of time as it wasn’t bad for him to improve at a steady pace as
“I know of an honorable noble in the Polar Region. He has slightly more
authority there and great influence as well. That person likes martial
arts as much as I do too. However, I’ll give you a heads up that I’m
not too close to him and I’m only in contact with him purely because of
martial arts. We stand on equal footing and neither of us is better than
the other,” Celine explained. “Their Mech’s strength is as good as
ours. As long as you’re okay with it, I can introduce him to you.”
“Honorable noble…” typically in the Polar Region, only the nobles
from the royal bloodline were able to be crowned as an honorable noble.
These people often had strong backgrounds and shouldn’t be messed with.
Naturally, they possessed tremendous power and would be ranked higher
than Celine or even Britney. This person was indeed a big shot and those
who were able to contact him were definitely very important people as
Naturally, there were very few of these people.
“I’ll wait for your good news then,” Garen decided after some
thought. “I heard that if one has a good network, one can also become a
noble in the Polar Region, right?”
“That’s true, but there’s an annual limit and you’ll be able to
obtain a very small amount of land. The cost is very huge and there will
be a rental period as well. Why do you ask? Do you have such an
intention?” Celine questioned. “Well, you can just buy yourself into
nobility once your income has increased.”
“It is my dream to have my own land…” Garen acted as if he was
looking forward to it, but in actual fact, what he wanted was to find a
land that could give him a huge number of Rainbow stones. This way, no
one would be able to interrupt him as he absorbed all of them in peace.
This was the reason why he wanted a plot of land!
Furthermore, there were a lot of things and experiments that he wanted to
keep off the radar. He didn’t dare to fool around in the academy
grounds as there were a lot of surveillance and powerful people around.
