Another half a year passed by...
After cleaning another tide of zombies, Bing Shi sat at the top of the platform. While dangling her legs in the air, she watched the busy soldiers below.
Each passing day, the soldiers dealt with zombies faster and faster. Their strength grew incredibly high. Each soldier could deal with the past Yi Zen efficiently. How could they not? Living on Fu Lian's food, eating nuclei like candies, and being in actual combat most of the day, each was a threat on his own.
On the other hand, Yi Zen was a walking atomic bomb. He was strong enough to destroy a whole island with his lightning storm, let alone a city.
What could a zombie queen or emperor do against a strategical assassination and weeks of planning? Nothing much. Before an emperor could attack the citizens with a tidal wave, Yi Zen sent special forces to scout the nearby cities, while Bing Shi ordered citizens to move to the central city, and showed them what to do in case of a sudden attack.
What about Ren Han? Because Bing Shi couldn't clone herself, the situation outside the borders was much more complicated. Whenever he went outside the country, Bing Shi would lend him Kuro, to become a bridge between the two cultures. Yes, it would ease his job by the hundreds, but would he allow her to gain more recognition? No! He was not as stupid as before. Using her for his benefits? That's exactly what she wanted! As if! Throwing Kuro back at her, he established a name for himself.
But would Kuro leave Ren Han alone? Haha...
Kuro, the messenger, traveled around the countries and showed Bing Shi's accomplishments. Everyone could see the life inside the self-sufficient central cities. While Ren Han had to put twice the effort, Kuro, with just its presence alone, was enough to gain followers all around the world.
Bing Shi's growth rate was scarily tremendous. The international powerhouses felt oppressed by Bing Shi, this individual, who was currently believed to be the most powerful human in the world.
For the first time in his life, Ren Han felt that he couldn't keep up. To whom? He stared at the girl, who playfully dangled her legs in the air, "..."
Yes. Exactly. This. Silly. Girl.
He didn't want to miss her. He wanted to forget her. And here he was, coming from afar, standing next to her... yet again.
As the days came by, she was becoming more and more unreachable. So what if she hid behind an army of men? She still achieved things unheard of before. While her disguise pointed at the gender neutrality, she never hid that she was a woman. Without a need of her womanly assets, she showed that women were more than capable of standing hand in hand with men, without acting like men themselves.
"Taking a break?" Ren Han sat next to her. Whenever he arrived, she would sit at the top of the platform, listening to music or staring at the men below.
"No," Bing Shi answered, "I'm training."
"...Why?..." he asked, almost forgetting about her ability. With it, she didn't need to hide, but still did, why?
Bing Shi got closer to him and whispered, "You never know. What if one day, I need to protect my army or my people? I can never be too confident because I know that there will always be someone better to prove me wrong. Kid, you are among that someone."
Ren Han gritted his teeth. That's his weak spot! "I'm eighteen!" as soon as she finished her words, what went through Ren Han's head was to rip off her mask, plunge his tongue into her mouth and kiss her hard until she became breathless, to show her how much of a kid he was! Did she lock out her fragrance? She smelt like nothing. Ah, why did she have to make everything about her so exclusive? "Why are you not a man?" he muttered to himself. Then, he wouldn't have to deal with such feelings.
"You can think of me as a man," Bing Shi chuckled, "How do you keep the fish alive?" She started to negotiate. Yi Zen couldn't get out this information out of him, no matter how much he offered.
"...Too late..." Ren Han turned around, "They are mutated fish. I fed them with a LVL 5 nucleus." He did the unexpected and revealed the information.
You see, Bing Shi always answered his questions, without asking anything in exchange. So why not?
"Oh, how I never thought about it before?" asked Bing Shi herself as she created a barrier around half a thousand people at once. If anyone saw it, they would be startled by how freely the soldiers flew around without noticing that something was covering their bodies. "Maybe because I think about sweet potatoes all day?" she pondered.
These two!! Because nobody would feed a fish with such high leveled nuclei!!!
Ren Han chuckled. Seeing her standing up abruptly, he looked up, to see blood dripping down her neck. "What happened?!" he asked in fright, and stood up to follow after her. Reaching his hand to catch her, he was stopped by an invisible wall, clutching his hand hard, he resumed his cool.
Bing Shi ran towards her tent. "Five hundred people were too much on me. My nose started to bleed, hehe. Why do you always see me in the worst state?" asking, she shut the door before his eyes, "Aish, this is no fun! I want to be a cool grandma!"
Everyone thought that Bing Shi needed their protection, but in truth, she was the one protecting everyone.
Ren Han bit his trembling lips. She was not going to disappear without notice, was she? Unable to move, he touched her barrier, leaning his forehead against it, he imagined his life without her, something he did a lot, to prepare himself.
Bing Shi told him beforehand her time limit.
After she disappears, he'll finally be free.
He'll move on like always.
Yes, that's what he would attempt to do.
