Chapter 39 – Guan Ren Zuo

The teachers and school management who were respected during normal times have all turned into a bunch of cowards over the past few days. Now, it was those who have the bigger fist that has the right to choose.

“Step away, I want to bring my grandfather away from here.”

“Teacher Guan. Isn’t here… better?”

Before he could complete his words, he lowered his head and saw a white blade coming out of his chest. This was the first time that some students had witnessed a murder, causing them to all retreat in fear.

“Ah… murder!”

“Someone is murdered, help!”

Yang Tian killed a student and successfully got the result he wanted. The equipment room was already a small place and could not hold so many people. Now that upheaval has started, the weaker students were all pushed to the ground and stepped on by the others.

Guan Qing Xue brought her grandfather to Yang Tian’s side before they left the room.

No one from the group dared to run for their lives by going down the building.

“Little Xue, who is he?” Guan Qing Xue’s grandfather looked at Yang Tian with some worry.

Just from Yang Tian’s actions earlier, Guan Qing Xue’s grandfather knew that it was not the first time that Yang Tian had killed a person. Moreover, that icy expression Yang Tian had when he committed murder, had made it looked as though it was not a matter of importance. This was what Guan Qing Xue’s grandfather was worried the most, what sort of person would display such an expression when they kill a person?

“I am called Yang Tian.”

He was still Guan Qing Xue’s grandfather, so Yang Tian did a simple introduction.

“This old one is called Guan Ren Zuo.”

Guan Ren Zuo?

Yang Tian was slightly surprised, he did not expect Guan Qing Xue’s grandfather is Guan Ren Zuo.

Guan Ren Zuo was a person of small renown during the early phase of the Post-Apocalyptic Era, a pity he died too early so his name was not widely known.

“Young friend, may I know what is your relationship with my family’s Little Xue?”

“She saved my life!”

Yang Tian was of course not referring to the current Guan Qing Xue but the Dark Assassin Guan Qing Xue.

You protected me in our previous lives, this time it is my turn to protect you.

“Grandpa, he is over exaggerating! It is just that…”

After leaving the building and before Guan Qing Xue could finish her sentence, a group of people surrounded them.

Thirteen Metahumans.

“Principal, who are they?”

The one leading the Metahumans spoke stiffly, he might have addressed Guan Ren Zuo as principal but his gaze was as though he was looking at a servant.

“Oh, Li Fei! She is your Teacher Guan.”

Only allowed on

“I see, so it is Teacher Guan, no wonder I find her somewhat familiar. Did the Principal bring Teacher Guan to join us? There is a small price to pay if that is that case…”

After seeing Guan Qing Xue’s looks, Li Fei’s tone was got slightly obscene.

“Then who is he?!”

“The person that will kill you.”

Taking liberties of Guan Qing Xue in front of him? Looked like he is tired of living!

“Then I really want to see how you are going to kill me.”

Li Fei looked at Yang Tian with eyes filled with contempt, ‘I have thirteen Metahumans with me. Even if you are powerful, how will you handle all of us?’


The Brain-Eating Terror Hog appeared behind Li Fei and his group. After receiving Yang Tian’s orders, the Brain-Eating Terror Hog came to find him immediately.

“Brother Fei, there is a monster behind us.”

“Brother Fei, quickly retreat.”

When the Metahumans on Li Fei’s side saw the Brain-Eating Terror Hog, their arrogant faces were replaced by panic and none of them could be bothered with Yang Tian.

“Look here.”

Li Fei heard Yang Tian’s voice and instinctively turned around.

A white flash appeared.

The next moment, Li Fei was lying on a puddle of blood.

A faint trace of blood was on the edge of the Soft Bone Blade.

“You… you.”

“No, please don’t kill people.”

At the front of Yang Tian was Guan Ren Zuo blocking, hoping the former would stop the massacre.

Guan Ren Zuo strongly believed that Yang Tian would kill all the remaining Metahumans and the former do not wish to see such a scenario happening.

“If I do not kill them, they would come back and kill us.”

Kill to remove the roots, this was Yang Tian’s motto. He had shown too much leniency in his previous life and it had resulted in him being caught in dangerous situations. The lesson of blood had taught Yang Tian that an enemy will forever be an enemy, they will not change just because you let them go.

Yang Tian gave a kill order to the Brain-Eating Terror Hog without hesitation.


On its huge tusks appeared twelve Metahumans being skewered together, blood slowly dripped down those tusks.

“Why, they are just students! Why can’t you let them off?”

Guan Ren Zuo crazily shouted, he felt despair when he saw thirteen students dead in front of him; he did not know why things had turned out like this.

“Students? There are no longer any students in the Post-Apocalyptic Era.”

There were still people who possessed kindness during the Post-Apocalyptic Era, these people firmly believed that humanity’s ugliness was not the only that was left within the Post-Apocalyptic Era, there were still good to be found. These group of people would keep fighting to achieve this goal, even when they were suffering by helping and giving up food to ordinary humans. In his previous life, Guan Ren Zuo was such a person and it was also because of it that he died.

In his previous life, Guan Ren Zuo could have easily defeated an enemy using powerful runes but he did not kill the enemy and chose to let him go in hopes that the person would assist in defending F City against the Otherworld Invasion. Guan Ren Zuo did not expect that the enemy will hide his intention and stood beside Guan Ren Zuo as an ally.

During one of the Otherworld Invasions, F City managed to defend against the invasion. Using the reason of completely eradicating the threat, that enemy had suggested infiltrating deep into the camps of the enemy with Guan Ren Zuo, to which Guan Ren Zuo agreed to do. However, during the infiltration, the enemy schemed against Guan Ren Zuo causing the latter to die under the hands of the Otherworld Creatures.

Runemasters were very rare in the Post-Apocalyptic Era, the loss of Guan Ren Zuo has undoubtedly weakened the overall strength of humanity.

“You should know that this is the Post-Apocalyptic Era, it is no longer the Civilized Era.”

“That shoe print on your pants was likely caused by a student, right?”

“But they have also searched for food for all of us, we would have starved to death had it not been for them.”

Then Guan Ren Zuo recalled how Li Fei and his group risked their lives to obtained food for them, yet they died in front of him. It made Guan Ren Zuo felt deeply ashamed.

“So what did they eat, and what food did you get?”

During the beginning of the Post-Apocalyptic Era, Li Fei and his buddies would naturally not expose themselves immediately so they would likely still share some food. However what they shared would surely not be anything good and after some time, their attitudes would have changed entirely.


Yang Tian did not want to waste so much time on this topic so he knocked Guan Ren Zuo unconscious and placed him on the back of the Brain-Eating Terror Hog.


“Rest assured, he is fine.”

Guan Qing Xue understood Yang Tian’s point of view but Guan Ren Zuo’s thoughts were also her thoughts as well.

Save people? Guan Qing Zue certainly wants to save people as well, but Yang Tian had also properly educated her about this matter. She knew where Yang Tian was coming from but she also could not really understand Yang Tian.

With his ability, why he was he unwilling to save more people?

Would saving a few more people really do harm to him?

When Guan Qing Xue met her grandfather again, those ideas that Yang Tian had instilled into her was thus slightly rejected.
