Chapter 27: TV appearance
“Sure I don’t mind putting him under my direct protection, but why does it have to be like that?”
The President asked as he looked at the message on the screen, his face a bit confused.
Impartial Goddess’s voice could be heard from the screen: “According to humanity’s history of strife, to protect a young person still in his growth for a long period, a solid figure like you backing him is necessary sir”
The President deeply sighed and asked: “The reason why this person must be protected, you can tell me that at least”
“In accordance with our agreement, I cannot say, but you can ask him yourself”
General Zhang next to him thought for a bit, then asked: “Then, can you tell us his Authority Level?”
The President’s eyes lit up, that’s a good idea, from this angle they can find out more about him without violating Impartial Goddess’s agreement.
Sure enough, Impartial Goddess spoke: “Sir President’s Authority Level is: Highest Leader, General Zhang’s Authority Level is: Leader, authorized access to this information”
“Gu Qing Shan’s personal Authority Level is: Highest Leader”
The President spat out all the tea he was drinking just now in surprise.
Impartial Goddess once again spoke: “Gu Qing Shan’s life is under threat at the moment, requesting sir President to make the arrangements”
“Just talking won’t stop people from Bai family” the President said as he tries to regain his composure, using a handkerchief to wipe his mouth, “Zhang Martial Saint, please personally go, if it takes too long I’m afraid he might not be alive anymore”
“The Confederate suddenly got another President out of nowhere… Fine, I also want to see, what kind of person he is”
When Gu Qing Shan came, the Presidential office was already neck-deep in work.
Inside the President’s office, there was only the President standing at the window, looking at the capital’s night sky.
From afar, he looked like a normal old man with grey hair, basking in memory of his glory days.
“Sir President, the person is safely brought back” said General Zhang.
The President immediately got back his spirit, the aura on him changed into a solemn but dignified feeling.
He looks intently at Gu Qing Shan, then said smilingly: “Good evening, should I call you student Gu, or Mr. Gu?”
“I’m already expelled from school, so you can call me Mr. Gu” said Gu Qing Shan.
“Then Mr. Gu, it was under the request of Impartial Goddess that I brought you here, I hope you don’t mind” said the President.
“I don’t mind, in fact, I have to thank you for saving me” Gu Qing Shan sincerely said.
Right now his strength is still in its growth phase, if he has to face enemies that are too strong, he might not be able to finish them off.
Not to mention, he was using the power of one person to face two whole aristocrat families.
They definitely had more people that haven’t joined the fray yet.
If it had continued, when the time comes for him to go to the other world, he would have no choice but to go there to hide, returning after an hour.
Then afterwards, he could only leave Chang Ning county and the Confederate itself.
The President smiles, then became serious again, asking: “Mr. Gu, I don’t know if this is appropriate, but as the President of the Confederate, I have to know why you’ve gained so much attention from Impartial Goddess —–never before have the Goddess been this serious about a 17 year old citizen, as such right now I have to confirm that your existence will mean no harm to the Confederate as a whole”
“That’s simple” said Gu Qing Shan “please connect to Impartial Goddess”
“I’m here” a solemn female voice was heard.
The three people looked around, to find Gu Qing Shan’s phone was lit up.
Impartial Goddess have the ability to connect to every information electronic devices, so the three of them wasn’t surprised.
Gu Qing Shan thought for a bit, then: “Please show what we’ve made to the President and the General”
“Citizen Gu Qing Shan, please confirm your authorization”
It’s fine to show them, since a few days later, after the Mech is done testing it would be delivered to Su Xue Er anyways.
When that time comes, it would definitely come to light.
He’s just showing it to the President a bit prematurely.
In history, this President was a person of respectable character, his governing was also excellent, if he has the chance to make a good relationship with him, Gu Qing Shan doesn’t mind showing a bit of Mech technology that’s ahead of the era.
Regarding the game that begins one year later, when the time comes, it would also be appropriate to prepare for when he needs to borrow the nation’s power.
That way, there would be much fewer people that die.
A screen showed up in front of the 3 people, revealing the Blazing Angel Mech currently on the S.W. Divine Temple.
“What is this? A Mech?” General Zhang closely stares at the screen, his eyes not wanting to miss a single detail.
“It seems to be a bit different from normal Mobile Mech Armors”
The President wore his glasses, also seriously evaluating it.
“Authorize demonstration mode, Authorize form 1 weapon system demonstration” Gu Qing Shan spoke
“Authorization received, demonstration begins” Impartial Goddess answered.
10 minutes later.
The President’s office is opened, everyone was moving about busily, preparing for a live news announcement.
“General, please let me borrow him for a bit” a fashionably dressed female personnel said.
“Be my guest, I’ll be outside waiting, call me when things are about to start” Zhang Zong Yang answered.
Gu Qing Shan immediately was taken away by the woman, and put in front of a make-up table.
The woman looked at him for a bit, nodding her head: “Looks decently handsome enough, but for these kinds of occasions, a bit more formal is better”
She took the powder brush, giving Gu Qing Shan a bit more shade on his face, giving orders to her assistance to prepare a few formal suits, another to prepare a bunch of different ties.
“Come, we’ll pick out one that fits you best, to leave a good impression the first time they see you” she excitedly spoke.
Gu Qing Shan reluctantly sighs, sat down to let the woman do as she likes.
On top of a skyscraper outside the Presidential office.
Martial Saint Zhang Zong Yang was taking one puff after another out of his cigar, like this is the only way for him to calm down.
As the Army supreme commander, a Saint-rank Martial artist, he has seen so many strange and unusual things in his life, but he still couldn’t contain his excitement.
“This kind of science, this type of Mobile Mech technology… Those idiots, why would they want to kill him” Zhang Zong Yang shook his head.
He suddenly remembered something, took out his phone and called a number.
“You lot have a family gathering today correct? Very good, turn on the TV, wait for the President’s official announcement”
“Remember, do everything you can to stay friendly with the person next to the President, become his ally if possible, hell, try and get him to come to Military Academy”
Right as he hung up, another person called
“Hm? Sea King, what’s the matter?”
“I don’t know”
“Really, I not hiding anything, I don’t know what you’re talking about”
15 minutes later, the President of the Confederate officially made an announcement, live streaming it to the whole Confederate.
He cites the history of the Confederate, professing his respect to the many heroes who died on the battlefield, then using that, he started talking about the time he served in the army, citing his remembrance of his fallen comrades, finally announcing his help and guardianship of a war orphan.
Right then, Gu Qing Shan was gestured to come on stage.
The Confederate treats its veteran as well as remaining family members of fallen soldiers very well, its society as a whole respects soldiers.
Because everyone knows it as fact, that without soldiers at the frontline risking their lives, there would be no peace in the Confederate.
The President himself giving a show of respect like this would only improve his image in the citizens.
Impartial Goddess herself verifies on the scene that Gu Qing Shan is the son of one of the President’s old comrades, ensuring there would be no doubt.
“In just 20 days, it will be the Confederate’s 300th founding anniversary, I am appealing to all to mourn the passing of soldiers on the battlefield and support their family members, as they are the silent protectors of our home, as they deserve to be treated with respect”
On the main screen at the bar, just as the President’s speech finished, the live stream was over.
“The fuck, just half an hour ago he was under suspicion of murder, why is he suddenly supported by the President of the Confederate himself now?” Feng Huo De mumbled.
Anna spoke: “Obviously, because the Confederate found him, if I’m not wrong, this would be Impartial Goddess’ protection measure”
“Why do you think so?”
“His parents did pass away long ago, but they were just normal people, and has never been on the battlefield”
When Anna opened Gu Qing Shan’s personal record, the information inside had already changed.
Gu Qing Shan’s parents originally died in a car accident, but that was changed to be killed in action.
“Only Impartial Goddess have the ability to alter personal records like this,” Anna said.
“What, is he Impartial Goddess’ son or something” Feng Huo De tilted his head, still very confused.
Anna angrily pounded the table, stood up to go outside.
“Your Highness, where are you going?” Feng Huo De asked.
“I clearly saw him first, and they dared to steal him from me!”
Anna quickly went out.
