The Special Forces all looked at her in disbelief while she continued to toil the gun in her hand like a professional. “Do you even know how to use a gun? When I learned how to use this, all of you were still babies, crawling around in your mother’s wombs.” Gu Xijiu did not seem to hold back her professional qualities.
Her aura was certainly intimidating and unrelenting. “It is time for me to question you. Where did you come from? Why did you come here and make my people suffer?”
The armed men looked at each other confusedly. They knew that spells and magic existed, but the people they encountered were usually not strong enough to resist their advanced weapons, so they never really cared. Never had they thought that the Lord, whom everyone kept talking about, was an expert in the use of guns. From the way she carried one, they were all convinced.
Although they were injured, the armed men refused to surrender and continued to give in to Gu Xijiu’s request. Getting tired of their games, she shot one of the men right in the head. He fell to the ground and was lifeless.
“Answer my questions, or you will end up just as same,” she warned while throwing another look at them.
The woman was too cruel for them to play games with. Therefore, all of the armed men finally stopped messing around. One of them seemed to be sneakily reaching into his boots and was ready to retrieve the small gun that was kept hidden. However, he could not find it.
“Are you looking for this?” Gu Xijiu kicked aside a short, golden gun that was the size of a lipstick.
The officer’s face went pale. Quickly, the others reached into their boots as well, only to find that their weapon had been taken away. The woman was obviously not a mortal.
Other than the guns in their hands before, she had seized all of their hidden firearms as well. She must possess some compelling Kung Fu moves too, they thought.
“We are from the year 2348. We are here to conquer the land.”
“Lady, I reckon you must come from planet earth. Have you time-traveled here? You are really good with guns. Nevertheless, since we are all from the same planet, we should help each other out. How can you abandon your own kind to save these mermaids?”
“Lady, it is best that you let us go. If the Admiral knows about this, he will surely be unhappy. You and your people are bound to suffer.”
“Lady, I am telling you that we have almost conquered the entire land. Some stubborn ones are still resisting, but they will be dead soon. A wise woman should submit to fate and adapt her actions to the times. You should not make us your enemies!”
Gu Xijiu quietly listened to their attempt to persuade her. Aside from a lot of useless information, she was able to come to a few conclusions. Firstly, these men had indeed come from the future. Almost a year ago, they invaded the place. The ship in the shape of a flying object was one of their means of transportation.
Secondly, the Admiral was the highest person in command, with the final aim to conquer the entire Starry Crescent Land and enslave every inhabitant.
Thirdly, the men that she had encountered were amongst the weakest of the troops; they had been assigned with the worst type of weapons and with no experience in any sort of tactical operations. Their only mission was to hunt down the mermaids, as the mermaids’ tears would turn into pearls, and their meat tasted good, which the leaders had a liking for. Also, mermaids’ oil could make good fuel.
In the past year, they had slaughtered thousands of mermaids, almost driving the beautiful species to extinction. Furthermore, almost all the people of the Starry Crescent Land were either killed or imprisoned. The prisoners would be turned into slaves with no freedom or rights. The men had to work day and night for their survival. Meanwhile, the women had to become sex slaves to the soldiers.
