TL: Moonlit

Liu Du fell heavily to the ground, immediately spitting out blood.
It was evident that his internal organs had been impacted.
However, at this moment, he couldn’t care about these injuries.

Suddenly, Liu Du remembered the advice Cheng Que gave him before leaving the base: “If you encounter Gu Langu, don’t say anything, don’t do anything, just retreat unconditionally.”

Combined with the recent mockery from Yu Jin, Liu Du only needed a moment to ponder and instantly felt his heartbeat disappear at seven millionths the speed of light.
Was it true? The maximum speed of Gu Langu, a speed that humans couldn’t possibly reach.
Yes, the being in front of him was not human!

Liu Du had never understood the terrifying aspect of a perfect semi-mechanical being like he did at this moment.
He had never realized so clearly that Gu Langu, who single-handedly fought the entire Xian Ge galaxy and carried the burden of interstellar warfare, was so frightening.

It was no wonder that after the end of the interstellar war, so many factions, including the Gu family themselves, were eager to eliminate Gu Langu.
Liu Du understood now that it was because everyone feared him—a powerful monster that couldn’t be matched!

Indeed, seven millionths the speed of light was the maximum speed Gu Langu could achieve.
However, that was only a theoretical data when creating Gu Langu and had not been achieved in reality.
The Gu Langu on the Cang Zhan Star was even less likely to reach that level, but evading bullets was still effortless.

But in this situation, Liu Du was obviously frightened.
So when Gu Langu took the first step towards him, a translucent golden protective shield with a diameter of more than ten meters instantly expanded around Liu Du!

Stellar technology! Gu Langu halted his footsteps.
Yu Jin also clicked his tongue.
Clearly, this was a life-saving measure, a reward obtained from completing the mission within the simulator, far surpassing the technological level that could be achieved on the Cang Zhan Star.

However, once this transparent shield appeared, it meant that Liu Du had surrendered.
Yu Jin’s gaze shifted toward the simulator, and his face turned dark.

The simulator was actually enveloped within Liu Du’s protective shield! Whether it was by chance or if Liu Du had planned it from the beginning, the shield’s activation perfectly covered the position of the simulator.

The confrontation between the two sides, who were initially full of fighting spirit, came to an abrupt end.
Apart from Gu Langu and Liu Du, no one else had even moved a step.
The war ended like a joke.

Everyone’s expression in the field turned sour.
It goes without saying for Team B, who couldn’t have imagined losing like this, or rather, they weren’t even worthy of being considered as losers.
The difference in strength between the two sides was too great to measure in terms of victory or defeat.
Although the protective shield temporarily saved them, any energy-consuming equipment would eventually run out of power, and who knew if Gu Langu would be waiting outside.

As for Gu Langu’s team, Gu Langu remained expressionless as always, as if he hadn’t just performed an inhuman act.
As for the simulator, it was not cute like a dormouse, so he had no interest in guarding it outside.
It would be a waste of time.
If he had that time, he would rather return to the base earlier and play with his furry dumpling.

As for Yu Jin and the other eight people, Yu Jin was irritated by the simulator, and the remaining eight were stunned by Gu Langu’s actions.
They had planned to go to Zone B, but now… it was hard to describe their situation.
They were in an extremely awkward position.

Although Gu Langu was strong, due to the limitations of resources on the Cang Zhan star, he couldn’t obtain extraterrestrial supplies, and most likely, he couldn’t unleash his full strength.

It was like giving someone a gun without bullets and sending them back to ancient times, where resources were strictly controlled, and there were no materials for making bullets.

Although Liu Du was temporarily safe, his face didn’t show much relief.
As for the simulator within the protective shield, it seemed to be causing him some trouble.
None of the members of Team B dared to approach and take it.
Liu Du struggled internally for a moment and decided to negotiate.
“General Gu Langu, can you let us leave if I give you this simulator?”

Gu Langu didn’t feel anything about it because Liu Du had no connection to him.
However, it would be nice to obtain the simulator early and return home sooner.
The thought of the fluffy dumpling made the corner of Gu Langu’s lips instinctively curl up.

Liu Du was taken aback by this faint smile.
It was too discordant to see a smile on the face of a man as cold and hard as steel.
However, Liu Du felt relieved internally.
It seemed there was still room to negotiate.

Gu Langu didn’t care, but Yu Jin, who had been explosive for the past few days, clearly would disagree easily.
“It sounds like you treat the simulator as if it’s yours.
But you can’t play with an empty glove, can you? When did the rules on the Cang Zhan star become so accommodating?”

Liu Du felt somewhat awkward for a moment.
Indeed, if we considered strength, the simulator should belong to Gu Langu.
And looking at it from another perspective, if Gu Langu’s team was suppressed, he would never let them go so quickly.
“Although that’s true, the simulator is currently in our hands.
If I destroy it now, I believe everyone’s efforts will have been in vain.”

Liu Du understood that Yu Jin was trying to squeeze some resources through this blatant blackmail.
However, having lived on the Cang Zhan star for so long, he subconsciously bargained because he wasn’t truly cornered.

The moment the protective shield was activated, Liu Po in Zone B received a signal.
While Gu Langu might not pose a threat to others, it was uncertain with Cheng Que.
After all, Cheng Que was the one who had controlled Gu Langu’s thoughts in the past.
Liu Du didn’t believe that Cheng Que hadn’t left any backdoor for himself.
He must have tampered with Gu Langu in some way.
Otherwise, how could such an exceptional talent be exiled to the Cang Zhan star?

Yu Jin also noticed Liu Du’s dishonesty.
After a moment of thought, he understood the situation.
Most extraterrestrial technologies had information transmission functions, and Liu Du was waiting for reinforcements.
However, Yu Jin was puzzled.
Liu Du seemed visibly startled just now.
Did he really think he could contend with Gu Langu, even with reinforcements?

“Boss, do you think we can smash the protective shield?” Yu Jin smirked wickedly.
He didn’t want to wait for reinforcements.

Liu Du panicked upon hearing this.
He didn’t expect that not only Gu Langu but also Yu Jin wouldn’t play by the rules.
They had just been negotiating, and now these people were acting like this? “The simulator is still in our hands.
Think it over!”

“I don’t give a damn.
It’s just a simulator.
I don’t care if we don’t have it.
I don’t believe I won’t be able to survive without it!” Most of the time, Yu Jin was lively, which also meant that he had the most unpredictable personality and was prone to bursts of anger.

Liu Du’s face turned dark.
“I don’t care about your damn attitude, but I do have an elder brother.
Do you know why we’ve been working so hard to find the simulator this year? The global distribution of simulators this year is only a hundred, and according to speculation, the environment on the Cang Zhan star will deteriorate further next year.
Large-scale cultivation will be almost impossible to achieve.
In other words, the simulator will become the primary source of food.
Without the simulator, maybe you can survive on your own, but it’s impossible to feed the people in a base!”

A glimmer flashed in Yu Jin’s eyes.
“It doesn’t matter.
These few also want to join Zone B.
Our base doesn’t have many people left.
Do you think, with the strength of our boss, we need to negotiate to take what we need from you?”

Liu Du paused.
Although the strong prevailed on the Cang Zhan star, openly talking about robbing someone was a bit too shameless.
Moreover, he couldn’t be sure if Zone B could withstand Gu Langu’s attacks.
“If you want to rob our Zone B, I have no objections.
But what about Zone A? Or even the Western Continent? What about beyond the planet?”

“What do you mean?” Yu Jin seemed to be interested and asked.

Liu Du quickly continued, “According to accurate information, the Cang Zhan star is about to enter the era of doom.
This is the prediction made by the Galactic Alliance through global monitoring.
In other words, next year’s Cang Zhan Star will be a hellish place.
It won’t take long for the Cang Zhan star to be destroyed.
We, who are sentenced to eternal life on the Cang Zhan star, will also perish along with it.
And the simulator is currently our only way to obtain resources from outside the planet.
Losing even one is a huge loss.”

Finally grasping some clues, Yu Jin realized why the number of simulators was so low this year.
It was because the Galactic Alliance had calculated that the investment value of the Cang Zhan star had decreased significantly.
And next year, a large number of residents would die, so there was no need to distribute as many simulators.

Or perhaps, the Galactic Alliance had predicted the era of doom on the Cang Zhan star long ago.
That’s why they sent Gu Langu there.
They couldn’t kill Gu Langu themselves, nor could they bear the blame for killing him.
So they let the Cang Zhan star destroy Gu Langu.
Who would blame a doomed planet for the destruction?

Although they could roughly guess that Liu Du’s words were true, Yu Jin was still extremely annoyed by the sight of Liu Du inside the protective shield.
This cunning guy had created such a tortoise shell.
They couldn’t defeat him, and they couldn’t leave either.

While both sides were deadlocked, suddenly, a shadow floated overhead.
Everyone instinctively looked up, and their expressions changed.

“The simulator!” Someone exclaimed.

Slowly descending from above was indeed a parachute carrying the simulator.
Against the light, the shadow under the parachute was particularly striking.
That should be the simulator hanging beneath it.

Inside and outside the protective shield, everyone nervously watched the floating parachutes, unsure which area they would eventually land in.
If they landed on the shield, would Liu Du have the ability to open it and accommodate the simulator?

“There’s another one!” Another person exclaimed, and everyone turned their gaze toward the dazzling sun.
Just above the parachute, not far away, another parachute was slowly descending.

At this moment, everyone’s emotions became extremely excited.
Two simulators! If what Liu Du said was true, these two simulators would be the future source of supplies and the hope for survival! For an instant, everyone held their breath, their heartbeats accelerating rapidly, but no one dared to move a single step, as there was still Gu Langu on the field.

The parachute descended lower and lower, and as it became clearer, the excitement in everyone’s eyes slowly turned into confusion.
They realized that underneath the parachute was not the initial locked Rubik’s Cube state of the simulator, but a round, bulging bag?

Due to the eerie nature of the situation, although the parachute landed right in front of them, no one dared to reach out and grab it.

After a while, Yu Jin approached and opened the parachute, revealing a small bag the size of two hands held together.
Yu Jin poked it with his hand and felt that there seemed to be something alive inside.
He was slightly startled but quickly opened the bag’s mouth and stepped back.

The bag’s opening spread, and its contents spilled out in a chaotic manner.

They were bundles of bound locusts, still alive, with their antennae moving.
They crowded and fell, scattering on the ground.

Everyone: ??? Locusts falling from the sky?

Feeling that he had been tricked, Yu Jin was about to get angry when suddenly a whistle sounded from above.

Everyone: ??? Who is whistling like a hooligan?

Perplexed, they looked up and saw another parachute descending lower and lower.
When their line of sight was no longer affected by the glaring sunlight, they saw a furry mouse slowly descending on the parachute.
The little dormouse even adjusted the parachute’s landing direction and floated straight towards Gu Langu’s location.

Everyone was startled.
Why would a mouse fall from the sky? And it was a mouse that could whistle like a hooligan, and it was fearlessly heading straight for Gu Langu’s head!

Shu Shuishui, who was about to leave the mountain range, chose the option of descending by parachute while carrying the locusts instead of descending on foot or climbing up the treetops.
However, the bag of locusts was too big to share a parachute, so Shu Shuishui had to put the locusts in a separate parachute and control its descent while following the bag of locusts.

Little did he expect that as he floated down, he would actually see Gu Langu.
Shu Shuishui watched the bag of locusts gradually descending and, for some reason, remembered an advertisement he had seen long ago on Earth.
It seemed to be a marriage proposal advertisement, where a rope was tied around the bride’s ring finger, and a ring slid down the rope, falling from the sky and perfectly fitting on the bride’s ring finger.

Shu Shuishui felt that the current scene had a similar touch of poetic coincidence.
He couldn’t help but want to greet Gu Langu loudly and ask if he liked it, if it was romantic, and if he would marry him.
However, just as he was about to blurt it out, he remembered the warning not to speak in front of strangers, so he abruptly changed his course and let out a whistle full of flirtatiousness.
