Chapter 782: This is called a drill, understand?
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
It was late at night.
There was suddenly a terrifying how long sound echoing within the Su family’s residence. It was so scary that it woke up every family member in the residence. An elder quickly activated the battle defense alarm and awoke all the disciples from their sweet dreams. Even a certain world esper was alerted from his rest.
“F*ck, what’s happening?”
“Is it an enemy attack?”
“Could it be the Tian family is invading us?”
“Quick, prepare for battle!”
The entire Su family was now experiencing chaos.
It was only Su Zhengwen alone who felt that something was amiss. That familiar sounded like his father, wasn’t it? Inspecting that aura, Su Zhengwen was shocked to find out that it was his father who woke up everyone. He quickly headed to the scene. When he had a clear understanding of the situation, he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
“One-third of the total!” The big elder was feeling hateful and full of bitterness, “More than half of warehouse no.1 is now gone! One-third of the Su family’s resources are now gone! Just like that, it’s gone! And do you know what irritates me the most? That brat Su Hao, he’s still stuck at 4,999 points. After using more than 100 times than the norm, he still couldn’t breakthrough?!”
The big elder roared in anger, “This is fraud!”
“It’s definitely a scam!”
“The information on the book is all nonsense. What’s with the so-called ten times more resources. This already far exceeds 100 times! Using one-third of our Su family’s resources, and he still couldn’t enter the domain realm?! This bloody talent is simply granted by God when he’s bored and wants to toy with us. No, I will never consent to this again!”
The big elder was so angry that his whole body trembled.
Su Zhengwen blinked his eyes for a second before looked at Su Hao’s innocent expression, “You still haven’t broken through?”
“En.” Su Hao answered with a slightly guilty conscience, “Well, after reaching 4,999 points, I reach the bottleneck. To breakthrough, I still need one more point.”
“Just lacking one point?” Su Zhengwen couldn’t understand, “Won’t you breakthrough if you keep using the resources?”
“It’s not merely one point!” The big elder directly interrupted, “His one point is the bottleneck is more than 1,000 points when compared to normal people! If he wants to consume the resources, I am afraid that it’s not anything below the standard of the professional realm. If you really let him breakthrough, the Su family’s entire resources will likely dry up.”
“Damn, is it really the case here?” Su Zhengwen was stupefied.
“It seems so…” Su Hao acted innocently.
“Stop acting as if you’re innocent!” The big elder couldn’t withstand Su Hao’s innocent look anymore, “Humph, let me tell you. Forget about any resources from our family. Not even a drop! As long as this old man is still alive, forget about obtaining any energy. God, one-third of the resources, how many domain espers could be cultivated with them…”
The big elder walked away, expressing his anger in short breaths, leaving behind both Su Hao and Su Zhengwen who could only look at each other in dismay.
“The big elder is good in everything except being petty.” Su Hao sighed.
Su Zhengwen glance at him. Su Hao instantly consumed one-third of the resources which the Su family accumulated over the years in one night. Anyone who doesn’t feel heartache about it would be strange. The bigger reason for why the big elder rage was most probably due to the fact that Su Hao is still wandering in the professional realm…
There’s no other way, the performance to price ratio is too inefficient.
Such amount of energy could easily cultivate several professional espers breaking through into the domain realm, but when it was applied on Su Hao…
“Seems that you have to think of another method.” Su Zhengwen patted his shoulder sympathetically.
“Yeah.” Su Hao sighed. What a long journey for energy so that he can continue.
At first, he thought that after the destruction of Model Analysis, he would be able to get rid of that bitter pursuit of energy. Never did he expect the emergence of this new talent made him embark on a journey of energy which is actually worse than before. However, although it’s right to sigh and blame the huge consumption, Su Hao had to admit that he’s definitely the one who improves the fastest.
There is no other esper!
There is no one else that is able to reach the peak of professional realm in one night!
Who could have such speed?
If one is to include Su Hao’s several days of cultivation, then it would mean that the moment when Su Hao bore this new talent, he reached the peak of professional realm in merely ten days! From basic to peak professional realm in ten days? This freaking cultivation speed is absolutely unprecedented!
“Oh yeah!” Su Zhengwen pointed outside and said with a smile, “The riots outside, I am afraid you need to step up and explain it to everyone.”
“Why me?” Su Hao rolled his eyes. This chaos was all caused by the big elder and not him!
If the people outside are to know that the reason this incident happened was because of Su Hao emptying their family’s resources, he can probably imagine what kind of criticism he would receive.
“Then, you can only speak the truth.” Su Zhengwen said in a bitter tone.
“Damn it…” Su Hao cursed in his heart and could only compromise, “Alright, I will go then.”
As he walked out, every disciple paid their respects while they were in the middle of discussing what’s going on. Several elders were also looking at each other cluelessly. They really had no idea what was happening. After noticing Su Hao walked out, everyone shifted their attention toward him.
“You think he can handle it?” The big elder asked as he returned and stood beside Su Zhengwen.
Su Zhengwen didn’t feel any surprise at all. With his strength, he could clearly sense that his dad had been hiding nearby and didn’t leave, “There shouldn’t be any problems. This brat is pretty clever.”
“Humph, hope so.” The big elder said fuming with hatred. Obviously, his anger towards Su Hao didn’t subdue, “His energy consumption is too huge. Seems that there is no chance for him to step into the world realm. If he has the ability to manage the family as the Clan Head, perhaps our Su family can go further.”
“I am quite optimistic about him.” Su Zhengwen smiled without much care.
He knew what kind of person his dad is. Moreover, unlike his father, he knew what kind of terrifying potential Su Hao has. If nothing else, at least, Su Hao had the capability to ring the world bell with his Rule Force…
For years since the chaotic era, the Rule Force is pretty much complete.
And Su Hao’s strength manages to stand out among thousands of Rule Force, becoming a new Rule Force and rang the world bell. How could such strength be simple?
Exactly, what kind of power is that?
Su Zhengwen was full of expectations.
“Quiet!” Su Hao’s face looked calm. When he went outside, his face actually revealed some chill, making everyone silent. The current Su Hao had the qualification to act like so in the Su family.
His cold eyes swept across the crowd.
Su Hao only coldly opened his mouth, “Is there anyone who knows what’s happening?”
When everyone heard this question, they looked at each other. Shouldn’t the Clan Head inform them what’s happening instead? Could it be that the Clan Head doesn’t know either?
“Does anyone know?” Su Hao still looked at the crowd with his cold eyes.
No one dared to say anything. This atmosphere didn’t seem right. Could it be that the Clan Head knew what’s happening and come out to punish someone? Having such thoughts, the crowd was even more afraid to speak.
“No response?” Su Hao’s eyes flashed coldly, “Who’s the one who activated the defensive system?”
“It’s me.” An elder hesitated for a moment before he stepped forward. Looking at Su Hao’s ugly face, he carefully explained, “It’s me, I heard a loud roar and there was a hint of a domain esper attacking. If there is an attack against our Su family, I am afraid quite a number of disciples would be injured. So…”
“You come out first.” Su Hao nodded, “Stand to the side.”
“Yes.” The elder came out in embarrassment.
“Just now, the one who dispatched the troop, come out. Do I even need to invite you out too?” Su Hao said coldly.
Everyone swallowed their saliva. This was the first time ever for Su Hao to be this angry since he became the Clan Head. Such anger really frightened many people. There was this rumor that the Clan Head had been in closed-door cultivation. Could it be that when the Clan Head cultivated to the critical moment when he got interrupted?
“Me.” A young disciple came out with a look of admitting his sins, “I woke up the disciples in our family. I thought it was an attack from the enemy. Sorry, Clan Head.”
“And me!” Su Minghui smiled bitterly.
“Step out, anyone else?” Su Hao didn’t bother with them and looked at the group of disciples instead. No one stepped out anymore. It seems that it was these few people who took the lead.
“Do you all know what happened just now?” Su Hao slowly walked down. Su Minghui and the other two people stood in front of everyone else. The crowd could not tolerate it. The Clan Head is probably going to give out punishment, but what happened just now that their Clan Head would be this mad?
“This kid, was he become an actor before?” The big elder opened his mouth wide. Looking at Su Hao’s cold expression, he knew what happened earlier. Could it be that Su Hao is planning to use the reason that his breakthrough was interrupted? Although using such a reason won’t receive any objection from the crowd, he felt that this reason is too forceful.
“Interesting.” Su Zhengwen seemed to be enjoying this scene.
In front of the Su family, Su Hao actually twisted the topic, “Just now, I actually made a bet with the big elder. You all want to know what’s the bet?”
Everyone was at a loss. Who would know what you two bet on?! However, forget about the bet, how did the situation turn into this chaos?
“Everyone should be well aware that I haven’t become the Clan Head for long. Thus, I lack a clear understanding of our Su family’s strength, and I can only speculate the overall strength through everyone’s usual state. Finally, I arrived at a conclusion. Our Su family’ individual strength is great, but when it comes to a war…”
Su Hao slowly stated his words, but the content was unusually spicy, “You guys can only serve as cannon fodder!”
The scene turned into an uproar.
Everyone couldn’t imagine Su Hao to be so unreserved. Each one revealed their disappointment, but due to Su Hao’s identity, they dared not speak out.
Several elders who had more courage began to voice out.
“No rush.” Su Hao waved his hand to calm them down, “However, the big elder didn’t think so. He thinks that our Su family is always ready for a battle. Each disciple here is powerful and stays united. If a war breaks out, our Su family can definitely stand out and survive in troubled times.”
Everyone’s face seemed to turn into a better color. However, several elders seemed to have thought of something, causing their face to turn ugly.
“Thus, I bet with the big elder that if someone is to attack our Su family, how many people could get ready for combat as quickly as possible.” Su Hao coldly threw this sentence before smiling strangely at everyone, “Now, who can tell me when the sound disrupted our residence, how many people were actually awake?”
Everyone’s face turned green.
