Chapter 855: Big uncle and a cute girl
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
Jingdong City, inside the city.
Between the streets and alleys, a small figure in pale pink color was fleeing. Somehow she always managed to hide her body well in the crowd. Soon after she left, a slightly imposing middle-aged man walked steadily while observing each corner carefully.
“She escaped again?” Lan Tingxu frowned slightly.
This was the 20th time this little girl escaped. Although this little girl was only at the level of specialized esper, if she wanted to hide, even he would be helpless.
“Damn this grade S talent!” Lan Tingxu cursed inwardly.
Yes, he was now on a mission.
This mission was as usual related to an awakened grade S talent. A young girl who just reached puberty was detected when she broke through into the specialized realm via energy drugs. Lan Tingxu then began his mission. However, there was no data regarding this grade S talent, which was why he still couldn’t find her.
Lan Tingxu’s communication device rang, and a virtual screen popped out.
“Uncle, why don’t you stop chasing me? From Xiao Wen.”
It was that little girl; there was even a smiley face at the end of the message. Lan Tingxu looked helpless. Each time this little girl fled, she would attempt to negotiate with him. Of course, the result would be the same. He couldn’t let such a grade S talent esper roam around. It was too dangerous.
“No, I already told you about the dangers of a grade S talent.” Lan Tingxu replied without hesitation.
“I will restrain myself.” That little girl replied.
“Just come back.” Lan Tingxu took a deep breath, “Now technology has advanced to the point that it doesn’t require too complicated operations or even the past where it’s necessary to kill. As long as you consume a tube of reagent, you can eliminate the grade S talent from your body and turn into an ordinary person. Isn’t that great?”
“I have things to do.”
“Your mother’s treatment fees, I have already paid.” Lan Tingxu said in a soft tone. He knew that Xiao Wen was just a child from an ordinary family. The entire family depended on her alone. Plus, her mother was now seriously ill. This was why she couldn’t leave alone. However, what Lan Tingxu didn’t understand was why this little girl still wished to escape after all these follow-up matters had been dealt with.
“Thank you, Big Uncle. I will definitely pay you back.”
Lan Tingxu: “…”
“You still insist on not following me back?” Lan Tingxu sounded a little angry.
“If I go back, I can only be an ordinary person without the strength to protect my family.” Xiao Wen replied. Her tone was full of unwillingness. “Even with your strength, you failed to protect your family. If I become an ordinary person, then who will protect me?”
Lan Tingxu went silent.
That sentence, not being able to protect his family, really stung him badly.
If he has such that strength, if he has the strength of the world realm, who would dare to touch Xiao Die? Who dares to touch Li Tiantian? But he didn’t have such strength! Which was why he could only watch! In fact, he even ended up as a hostage! The Federation indeed has the strength to help him, but for the bigger scheme, he was abandoned.
As for the result…
The Federation succeeded.
Now, it has true power, but his family…
Lan Tingxu clenched his fists tightly.
“Sorry, Big Uncle…”
On the screen, Xiao Wen seemed to notice that she had said something wrong and panicked to apologize. Lan Tingxu shook his head slightly and didn’t answer. At times, he was also not sure whether he was right or wrong.
This route he’s taking now, is it the right one?
Lan Tingxu looked at a picture on the communication device, which was Xiao Wen’s photo. She was a cute girl full of cheerfulness. Even after being chased for 20 times, she was still this positive. Each time after the escape, she would try to negotiate with him in regret, hoping to grasp that slim hope.
However, is it possible?
What he represented is the Federation!
Even if he let Xiao Wen escape, could this little girl escape from being detected by others? Once other people find her, Xiao Wen will only have a dead end!
Not everyone is willing to use that expensive drug to abolish a grade S talent.
Thus, the only thing he could do was find her!
Take her back!
What happened to his daughter, he didn’t wish it would occur to this little girl. Lan Tingxu looked up and muttered to himself, “With my best capability, I will protect you…”
Lan Tingxu disappeared from the spot.
Soon after he left, a figure appeared. Su Hao finally arrived here, but he could only see Lan Tingxu leaving from afar.
“He’s gone?” Su Hao sighed. He was one step too late again!
After spending several days at that place with Chen Yiran, Chen Yiran returned to report her mission, while Su Hao rushed to find Lan Tingxu. Unfortunately, he had missed him by a beat.
In Su Hao’s backpack, a cute bear’s head was exposed.
“Go back!” Su Hao stared fiercely. That exposed head felt aggrieved. Obviously, this bear’s head was none other than that fake world realm beast caught by Su Hao.
As a hurricane force stone, it radiates the hurricane force at all times. Although weak, if it’s absorbed daily, the accumulation would be a huge amount too. Moreover, this force is the purest hurricane force, and there was no need to take the risk of confronting any world espers.
For Su Hao, this simply fits his requirement!
Thus, after thinking about it, Su Hao decided to take this thing on a journey together. Of course, since the Rule Force kept being absorbed by Su Hao, it will probably never grow up before Su Hao actually steps into the world realm…
“Aowo~!” Little Bear screamed aggrievedly, but its eyes were looking around at the world. It was a fresh and new scene for it. This was simply not something that can be seen in the polar region. Oh, by the way, Little Bear was named by Chen Yiran since it looked like a bear.
“Go back.” Su Hao glared at it again. He didn’t wish to attract attention.
“Wow, so cute!”
An exclaim could be heard. A figure suddenly grabbed the bear. Su Hao felt this wasn’t good. Although the bear was weak for him, it’s still a pseudo world esper! It can’t even control its own strength! If it encountered ordinary people, it might accidentally hurt the other party.
“Don’t.” Su Hao turned around.
However, it was already too late. A pair of little hands skillfully picked up the bear, “Wa… so cute~.”
Su Hao: “…”
“You’re fine?” Su Hao was amazed.
“What’s the matter?” The little girl blinked with her big eyes. Looking at Su Hao strangely, she squeezed the bear’s fluffy body and offered her hand, “Hello, I am Xiao Wen.”
Even after Su Hao shook her hand, he was still a little surprised.
Could Little Bear be able to control its weight and strength? Looking at this thing, Su Hao saw a blank face…
“Seems that I really overthought it.”
Su Hao looked at this little girl in front of him. When the Model Analysis finished its scan, he suddenly revealed a stunned expression. In this little girl’s model, a card was looming. With his current strength, he could naturally identify it easily. That was a unique talent card, grade S!
“Unique talent, huh?” Su Hao pondered. There seemed to be an answer to the appearance of Lan Tingxu here. Was he here for this little girl?
Grade S talent…
Lan Tingxu still did such things.
Now that the Federation is the sole ruler, it obviously wouldn’t allow these grade S talent espers to mess around. The crackdown would probably be stronger than ever. However, this situation was great. He was still worried about not being able to find Lan Tingxu. Since this little girl is here, as long as he follows her, Lan Tingxu will eventually meet him.
“Waa, where did you buy this little bear?” Xiao Wen was very interested in this bear.
“I picked it up.” Su Hao said honestly.
“Huh? Pick it up, why not give it to me?” Xiao Wen excitedly said.
“I am fine as long as it agrees.” Su Hao smiled indifferently.
“Alright, alright.” Xiao Wen glanced at Little Bear. Little Bear could sense the murderous glare coming from Su Hao, and shook its head firmly to disagree.
“Waaa… it can understand our conversation.”
“Ah.” Su Hao smiled indifferently, “Little Bear and I are going to eat. Do you want to tag along?”
Su Hao glanced at her. Since Lan Tingxu just left, this young girl probably had been hiding for a long time and probably didn’t even manage to eat. After arriving at a place to eat, Su Hao hacked her communication device and found her information easily while waiting for their food to arrive.
“Xiao Wen, why are you here?” Su Hao pretended to be curious and asked while eating.
“I have been followed by a bad Big Uncle.” Xiao Wen pouted her mouth.
“Bad person?” Su Hao’s face looked sour, “Do you want me to help you and report this to the police?”
“Oh, no need.” Xiao Wen waved her hand, “That Big Uncle isn’t that bad. He’s just doing his job. Plus, aiya, how should I say it? In short, it’s unclear.”
Xiao Wen sounded discouraged.
Su Hao looked at this familiar scene. He realized that his current EQ was no longer low and asked carefully, “Xiao Wen, you can’t be liking that Big Uncle, right?”
Xiao Wen’s chopsticks fell down. She quickly picked it up and said in a hurry, “There is no such thing happening! How could it be?”
In her arms…
Little Bear rolled its eyes.
Su Hao smiled a bit. Can this be counted as a wild lily is also having its spring? Uncle Lan is so old, and there is actually a girl chasing him? Uh…
Men can be old but not their heart!
“Seems that I have been too much of a busybody.” Su Hao smiled meaningfully.
“Aiya, I already said it’s not that.” Xiao Wen blushed.
“However, if you keep doing this, it will be fruitless with that Big Uncle. Would you like me to help?” Su Hao said with interest.
“You won’t be able to do so.” Xiao Wen’s face looked a bit gloomy, “You don’t understand. I’m actually…”
“Grade S talent, right?” Su Hao smiled indifferently.
“You know?” Xiao Wen’s eyes opened wide as they were filled with disbelief.
“Of course.” Su Hao’s hands gathered endless energy, “Because I am also a grade S talent esper! Oh, I forgot to introduce myself. I’m Su Hao with grade S talent, realization.”
“Grade S… Su Hao?”
Xiao Wen looked at Su Hao in surprise. Then, she suddenly recalled something, “Wow, I remembered. I have seen you on the Internet. You’re Su Hao, Su family’s Clan Head!”
