“…What should I do with this person?” Although Qin Yun has never encountered this before, he also understands how painful this situation is for the guide, “Can’t you deal with it? He’ll get burnt out if he goes on like this…”
The man stared at him with an expression of ‘Are you stupid?’
Was this man’s brain damaged from the crash? Hasn’t he learned the ‘Universal Guide Protection Law’?!
“…” Qin Yun felt embarrassed halfway through and suddenly reacted, “Don’t you have a dedicated guide?!”
The other party’s expression froze as if a sore spot had been poked, and there was a hint of impatience in his stiff tone, “No.”
“Thought so…” Qin Yun muttered. Once a Sentinel had a dedicated guide, how could it be possible for them to act alone? They would have to be completely bound all day, 24 hours a day.
The antelope-type high-level guide was completely burnt out, and his spiritual link was not much better, with eyes filled with confusion and uneasiness.
The ‘Universal Guide Protection Law’ was shared by the entire galaxy. Of course, Qin Yun couldn’t just watch the other party being tossed silly, but naturally, there were no suppressants in his low-level guide’s medical bag.
“Do you have a stabilizer with you?” Qin Yun rummaged through the pile of ruins in the driver’s seat, “Don’t you have a dedicated guide… How can you go to the battlefield without some stabilizer?”
The Sentinel took a long time before lazily ‘hmph’ and said, “There is a box under the seat.”
“You should have said so earlier.” Qin Yun complained. He lowered his head for a long time before pulling out a half-damaged freezer case with several labels on it. Among them, a broken stabilizer had a name written on it, “Blah blah blah… Xizhao… blah blah…”
“Xi Zhao?” Qin Yun climbed up from the ruins holding the box. He shook the syringe fragment in his hand towards the sentinel, “Your name is Xi Zhao? What’s your full name?”
The sentinel, who was called Xi Zhao, gave him a cold look.
Qin Yun shrugged his shoulder. He put on an expression that said, ‘Okay, I won’t force you’. He quickly prepared four tubes of stabilizer and timed the injections into the enemy guide’s veins with precision.
The other party’s body temperature was gradually dropping, exhausting all the high-level guide energy, and the person fell asleep soon after.
“Alright.” Qin Yun finally breathed a sigh of relief. He laid the person down on the spot and did not intend to take him away. Although it was possible to capture or injure a guide on the battlefield, all parties generally cherished the high-level guide, so Qin Yun was not worried at all that the other party’s life would be in danger. This had become the default rule on the battlefield.
“Let’s go back to the logistics.” Qin Yun suggested while sorting out the medical bag, “El… Major General El shouldn’t be in direct conflict with the other side. The rescue from the logistics side should be faster…” Having said this, he paused, then asked somewhat uncertainly, “Are you…the reinforcement?”
Xi Zhao didn’t answer. He looked into the distance, suddenly grabbed Qin Yun’s collar, pressed his head and stretched forward, “Give me the direction. Where are those 500 sentinels.”
Qin Yun’s neck almost broke, grabbed by him. He subconsciously stretched out his guiding tendrils as per the other party’s order, “A-at 12 o’clock… what are you going to do?!”
Qin Yun yelled and grabbed Xi Zhao’s back tightly, and the sentinel actually carried him on his shoulders.
“You had the wrong idea.” Xi Zhao freed up a hand and casually wiped the blood on half of his face. Only then did Qin Yun see the other person’s left eye clearly.
The golden eyes were set on the dark red sclera like fake ones, and Qin Yun watched in awe as his pupil slowly stood up into a thin line.
“I’m not here as reinforcement.” Xi Zhao looked at Qin Yun calmly with his normal black eyes, “I’m here to fight.”
“I don’t want it! I will die!” Qin Yun’s whole body was completely hung upside down on Xi Zhao’s shoulders. His stomach hurt so much that he almost burst into tears, “You psychopath aaaaa—– !!!”
The next second, he was thrown into the sky with great force. Xi Zhao pulled out a nearly two-meter black giant sword from nowhere and chopped off the heads of the two sentinels in front of him.
“I! Am! Gonna! Fall! Dow—oof!” Xi Zhao grabbed the medical bag strap from mid-air. Qin Yun had the illusion that his lungs were strangled…
“Argh…psycho…” Qin Yun gritted his teeth intermittently, “I’m gonna curse you…”
Qin Yun wisely shut up…but it wasn’t long before he couldn’t help it anymore.
“You can’t do this… You’re completely losing control of your emotions, and your consciousness is so messed up.” He glanced at the other person’s expression secretly and tentatively stretched out his guiding tendrils, “I have been professionally treating mania for 20 years… I’m definitely a master at massaging neurons…fvck!!”
Xi Zhao hugged the person tightly at the waist. Behind him were two enemy mid-level sentinels, one with a giant python spiritual link, and its attack speed was frighteningly fast.
“Calm down! Calm down!” Qin Yun felt that his waist was about to be broken. He did not hesitate to put his guiding tendrils into Xi Zhao’s consciousness cloud, trying to appease the other party’s rage. Xi Zhao stepped on his feet and turned around. With the sword, the giant python was cut into two pieces in an instant.
“…” Qin Yun laughed dryly, “Ahaha… I have good massage skills, right?”
Xi Zhao’s expression was a little strange. He pursed his lips and quickly dealt with another sentinel who was chasing him. Then he carried Qin Yun in his arms.
“Huh…” Qin Yun was so moved that he almost cried, “This position is good…”
Xi Zhao glanced coldly, and Qin Yun quickly controlled the guiding tendrils to diligently guide the other party’s consciousness cloud.
Unlike any Sentinel he had come into contact with before. Xi Zhao’s consciousness cloud was so powerful that it was unfathomable. Qin Yun had only heard that S-class sentinels and high-level guide could hide their spiritual links freely. He did not expect that he would really encounter one in his life.
Xi Zhao’s consciousness did not reject him. On the contrary, it was unexpectedly gentle. Qin Yun’s tendrils reached the deepest level. Because there were too many places to be guided, his eyes gradually turned golden.
[That’s enough.] Xi Zhao’s voice reached his head [Stop, you’re going to faint.]
“Ha…ha…” Qin Yun violently retracted the tendrils, his field uniform soaked with sweat, and his whole body was shaking so much that he could hardly breathe.
Xi Zhao frowned and ‘tsk’ impatiently. He then reached out and grabbed his chin.
Qin Yun didn’t react for a long time when his mouth was covered.
The initial spiritual mark.
Xi Zhao’s pheromones gently probed Qin Yun’s consciousness cloud, and the latter’s guiding tendrils slowly stretched out…
“…” Xi Zhao’s face darkened, “I told you it’s enough. Do you want to die?!”
Qin Yun withdrew the guiding tendrils that had penetrated the other party’s consciousness for a long time and complained, “…My guiding is obviously very comfortable. Why should I stop…”
Xi Zhao: “…”
Qin Yun: “I was wrong, I was wrong! Argh!!!!”
For a low-level guide, being marked, even if it was just a mental mark, was a very novel thing. Qin Yun lowered his head and searched near his collar for a long time. A little discouraged, he said, “Isn’t it said that being marked would leave a spiritual mark? Where is your spiritual mark?”
Xi Zhao wiped his black giant sword, not bothering to explain to him.
Not long after the two of them established their mental marks, the enemy’s 500 sentinels were completely wiped out by Xi Zhao, who was well-nourished. His face almost seemed to be inscribed with the words ‘kill in all directions’, as he did a thorough annihilation.
He put away the giant sword, pulled Qin Yun, who was still chattering and forced him to raise his head.
Qin Yun licked his lips, and it sure tasted like rust, “…It’s all bitten.”
Xi Zhao didn’t speak. He squatted down with his back to Qin Yun and said calmly, “Come up. I will carry you back.”
Qin Yun was not polite either. He lay on Xi Zhao’s back and could see Xi Zhao’s left eye from one side. Although the colour had not changed, the pupil had returned to a round shape.
“Do you really not have a spiritual link?” Qin Yun felt a little regretful, “You are obviously so strong.”
Xi Zhao walked on in silence, but Qin Yun didn’t mind. He said to himself, “But you have a bad temper… Don’t be so irritable all the time. You might end up with a mental illness, you know.”
Xi Zhao: “…”
Qin Yun: “Woaa—! You are not crazy! I am! I am!! Don’t carry me on your shoulders!!! I’m going to vomit—Oh no!”
In the year 532 of the Galactic Calendar, the Imperial Army successfully occupied G-Star, which represented the Issa royal family’s silent declaration of war against the Olympus Alliance. In the next hundred years, G-Star would become the most important defensive fortress of the Empire, impregnable and unbreakable.
When the huge Empire Starship landed on the swirling hills of G-Star, Qin Yun had already returned to the logistics camp, but as soon as he turned around, he couldn’t find Xi Zhao.
Sennas rushed over with his face full of snot and tears: “Wuwuwu, I thought you were dead! General El searched for you for half a day… You!” Suddenly, Sennas’ face changed as he flew over and sniffed at Qin Yun’s neck, shocked, “You’re marked? Damn! Which son of a bitch did this?!”
Qin Yun: “…It’s just a mental mark, don’t be nervous.”
Sennas didn’t buy it, “Come on! You don’t know how strong this sentinel’s pheromones are!”
Qin Yun: “…”
The guide’s five senses were not as sensitive as sentinel, but even Sennas could feel it. Qin Yun finally felt that the matter might be more serious than he imagined.
Elberna subconsciously stepped back a meter before she got close to him. His artic fox spiritual link whimpered and drooped his ears, lying on the ground shivering.
Qin Yun raised his hands in embarrassment, “Hey buddy, is it really that bad…?”
Elberna’s expression was not pleasant; it was the instinctive dominance of a stronger individual over a weaker one. Just a hint of pheromones easily marked territory, “Definitely worse than you think… Who did you encounter, exactly?”
Qin Yun scratched the top of his head helplessly and muttered, “I wish I knew who it was…”
The Emperor Starship navigation lights projected from a distance. Qin Yun looked at the swirling hills. Elberna led the soldiers in a uniform military salute. When he put down his hands, he could only faintly see the exhaust of the Emperor Starship in the night sky.
