Chapter 6 Paper Art


The sun went down, the sunlight faded from New York City, replaced by neon lights.

In the wealthy area, the feasting nightlife has begun.

In the poor area, the night life of the bullets began.

And Cao Gui’s residence sits at the middle of these two areas.
Fortunately, although there is no feasting, there won’t be a hail of bullets.

On the bed in the bedroom, Cao Gui leaned on the pillow and quilt, half lying on the bed, with a bandage on his forehead.

He looks a bit miserable, but in fact it’s not a big problem.
The yellow-toothed robbers measures their actions well.
They didn’t hurt his head, not even a mild concussion.

But don’t think that the yellow-toothed robber had good intentions, he just wanted to torture Cao Gui.

The doctor sewed more than ten stitches on Cao Gui’s head before the wound was healed.

The doctor’s craftsmanship is very good.
Not only does he sew well, but he also cleverly uses his hair to cover the bandage.
If you don’t look carefully, you can’t see it at all.

Of course, Cao Gui paid a lot, and the $1,000 has shrunk by 70%.

In Great America, the poor deserves to be sick.

But to be honest, luck was a big factor when he killed the robber today.

The four of them had good marksmanship, excellent tactical cooperation, and decisive when the situation calls for it.

When the situation was not right, the first thought was to leave.
There were even teammates who were injured but didn’t speak it out.

But unfortunately, the yellow-toothed robber is a pit bull.

Not only did he recklessly give away their heads, but he also gave the remaining two people a classic sentence of [Big cripple] and in the end directly  ruined the two’s remaining chances of surviving.

Of course, Cao himself is not bad.
When they were stuck in a state of relaxed vigilance and was about to escape, he directly gave them a sneak attack and took a head neatly.

In the back, he relied on the advantage of the semi-automatic flintlock gun to point at the yellow-toothed robber, tricking the opponent into sending his teammates into a desperate situation.

[The Justice Navy System (helping every navy soldier with justice)]

[Soldier Name: Cao Gui (Petty Officer Second Class)]

[Meritorious Points: 1000 Experience Points: 550/1000]

[Dao Strength Value: 7 (reflects the standard combat power, not the factor determining combat effectiveness)]

Looking at the refreshed system panel, Cao Gui couldn’t help but think for a while.
When he first joined the navy, the system gave a 90% discount coupon for redemption.

[The Six Powers (iron body, tempest kick, moonwalk, shave, paper art, finger gun) each cost 10,000 merit points, a total of 60,000 merit points.]

With his current merit points, he can exchange just one of the six style in the Six Powers martial art.

So the question is, this coupon…use it or keep it?

If he keeps it, it will be much less difficult for him to obtain a Devil Fruit.

It belongs to the first bitter and then the sweet, but the problem is…

Don’t look at Cao Gui’s current system, but all the power must be obtained by himself.
The system has clearly stated that, There is no shortcut to power in the world.

And now Cao Gui is just a Petty Officer Second Class.

What is the concept of Petty Officer Second Class?

In the world of pirates, the second class of the navy is two words: weak sauce, three words: weak background character, four words: not affecting the overall, five words: weak strength with weak tricks.

There is not a single line in the whole film, only one sentence: Ah! Such a strong ki, what a powerful spirit bomb!

Wrong, it is:

What! So strong and domineering, what a terrible fruit ability.

Then, he died in the aftermath of the battle of the big bosses, and finally became only a basic unit that made up the casualty figures.

People can’t get rich without hardship, and horses can’t get fat without grass.
With just a saber and a flintlock gun, there’s no way he can make a name for himself in the Marvel world.

So, the choice is clear.


Then the second question follows, he only has 1,000 merit points and a coupon, which one to redeem?

Get rid of the iron body first!

Cao Gui didn’t learn any physical skills but he didn’t want to learn iron body!

The bloody lessons of CP9 are vividly remembered, and only fools learn iron body.

Now the time in the Marvel world is 2003 of the Western Calendar TM, and there are still a few years left, so the tempest kick and finger gun can be learned later.

The current world is not a world where superheroes walk all over the place.
Super villains are not as good as dogs.
The attack power of guns can solve a large part of the problem.

Shaved can also be ruled out.
This martial art requires a lot of physical strength.
With Cao Gui’s current physical fitness, it is not enough to support the use of this martial art.

Then there are only paper arts for dodging and moonwalk for moving.


Cao Gui thought for a moment, and finally chose “paper art”.

The reason is also very simple.

Paper art has the role in assisting combat, while it is more about escaping, chasing and intercepting, having no direct benefit in combat effectiveness.

What’s more, Cao Gui also has the identity of the FBI.
Before the advent of the superhero era, the FBI can solve most of the problems, so he does not have much requirements for escape.

What if there is a problem that the FBI can’t solve?

It’s not a big problem, don’t forget, Cao Gui also has the identity of the second generation of snakes.

“System, use the 90% discount coupon to exchange for the Six Powers: Paper Art!”

[The host spends 1,000 Merit Points to exchange for the Six Powers: Paper Art (discounted), please confirm the exchange.]



As soon as the voice fell, a soft ring echoed in his mind, and then a large amount of information poured into his mind.

Cao Gui rolled his eyes, accepting the information in a daze, only to recover after a while.

Paper art, this martial art is regarded as a weakened version of observation Haki.

But this statement is not correct.

Although both can sense and avoid enemy attacks, the principles are different.

Paper art is to use a special way to soften the body, so that the body can evade attacks like feathers and paper with the airflow.

In CP9, there are two ways of expressing paper art.
One is that Bruno and Lucci sense the attack and dodge as a whole.
During this process, the body is not deformed.

One is like an owl with a long zipper on its mouth, using a large deformation of its body to avoid attacks.

Cao Gui’s goal is to practice overall evasion like Bruno and Lucci.
As for body deformation, this is too difficult, and he’ll talk about it later.

Cao Gui stood up from the bed and moved his body a little.
He wanted to try the martial art of paper art.

Closing his eyes, Cao Gui took a deep breath and began to relax and soften his body according to the method in his brain.
Suddenly, he looked light and fluttering, like catkins swaying in the wind.

However, within half a second of this state, Cao Gui fell to the ground with a pale face.

“Huhu…damn, the load on the body… is too much.”

Cao Gui was sweating coldly on his forehead, and his physical strength was exhausted in just a moment, and he could no longer support the use of paper art.

Grinning his teeth, Cao Gui clambered onto the bed.

As soon as his head touched the pillow, Cao Gui snored loudly.
His physical exertion was too great, so he could only recover his strength by sleeping.

However, things were not over yet.
In the middle of the night, after 4 am, Cao Gui was enveloped by a boundless sense of emptiness.


The sound of hyperactive bowel sounds echoed in the abdomen, and the salivary glands began to secrete rapidly.

Cao Gui suddenly sat up from the bed, his eyes bloodshot.

Damn it! How can you be so hungry?

Cao Gui crawled into the kitchen and found a few steaks in the refrigerator.

He couldn’t help but threw them into the pot, boiled them, then took out all kinds of potato chips and cola, and stuffed them into his mouth.

Ton Ton Ton~

Lol Lol Lol~

In the dimly lit kitchen, the sound of Cao Gui’s fast eating was constantly heard.

But within a short time, the otaku food and otaku happy water in his hands had been exhausted, and the steak is not yet ready at this time.

No way, Cao Gui threw his head into the refrigerator, grabbed vegetables and fruits, and ate them raw, regardless of whether they were washed or not.

For Cao Gui like this, apart from the words starving ghost, he couldn’t find a more suitable adjective.

But the fact is, if Cao Gui doesn’t do this, he will really become a starving ghost.

After an unknown amount of time, Cao Gui finally raised his head from the refrigerator, a large amount of plant fiber and fructose entered his stomach, and the intense hunger finally eased.

Although still hungry, it is not as urgent as before.

Cao Gui walked to the side of the pot, the steak had already been opened, and he used a fork to lift it up.
He couldn’t help frowning, dipping it in salt, he still put it into his mouth.

Sure enough, the boiled steak must be old and woody, and it also has a meaty smell.

Under normal circumstances, it must be difficult to swallow, but now in special circumstances, the hunger in his abdomen still makes him eat with relish.

Cao Gui couldn’t help but take out the other raw and cold meats, and then entered the simple and rough cooking and eating method of boiling water + dipping in salt.


In the early morning, the sun rose from the horizon.
Cao Gui came out of the kitchen with a toothpick in his mouth.

To be honest, it was the first time he felt that eating enough was also a kind of happiness.

It seems that in the past, he has taken for granted his meals, not knowing the happiness of eating and being full.

After thinking about it, Cao Gui clicked on the system panel:

[The Justice Navy System (helping every navy soldier with justice)]

[Soldier Name: Cao Gui (Petty Officer Second Class)]

[Meritorious Points: 0 Experience Points: 550/1000]

[Dao Strength Value: 10 (reflects the standard combat power, not the factor determining combat effectiveness)]

Dao force value has increased, and he is finally stronger than Spandam!

The corner of Cao Gui’s mouth twitched, overjoyed, and then he slapped himself again.

Better than Spandam so happy? Shouldn’t there be a higher pursuit?

By the window, the sun shone into the windowsill, Cao Gui slowly stretched in the sunshine:

“Let’s go, it’s time to go to school!”
