lly make for the sake of her poor son.” (ED: So is our 1st villain, dear readers)

With that, Qin Wu sneered and exchanged a nasty glance with two of his friends.

Tianyang's eyes glinted with anger, and snorted, 

“Qin Wu, you violated the rules of the battlefield, shooting your own teammate and left me to die! Now, not only do you not plead guilty, but you also threaten me.
Don't you have any respect for the laws of the fortress?”

Qin Wu mocked, 

“It seems you haven't quite grasped the concept of the fortress's laws.
They exist to protect those of us from the upper city.
You, on the other hand, are just a rat in the gutter, a cockroach in the trash can! When have you ever heard of the law protecting rats and cockroaches like you?”

“You're nothing but a lowly commoner, not even worthy of a surname, yet you dare to lecture me about the law? What a joke.
Let me tell you, all of your hard work and efforts in your lifetime are just to make our lives better.
Your sacrifices and the value you create will ultimately become the foundation for elevating our status.”

“You can be angry, furious, and even vent all you want.
But I'm sorry, no matter what you do, none of it will change the fact that your fate was sealed from the moment you were born!”

“So, are you still planning on discussing the law with me?”

The bar fell silent.

Some officers' faces weren't exactly friendly, obviously not agreeing with Qin Wu's superiority complex.

But no one would stand up for a lower-class soldier.
It was the game's rule.


Tianyang examined the smug face and felt even a prowler was cute relative to Qin Wu.

The boy jumped off the high stool, hands in his pockets. 

“Originally, I thought that if you were willing to admit your fault and accept the punishment of the law, it would benefit both of us.
It seems that I was too naive.
Indeed, the weak have no right to speak.
Thank you for showing me that.
I won't make the same mistake again.”

Tianyang walked toward the door, eyes slightly raised, looking at a recorder in the corner of the bar.

“Stop!”

As he expected, Qin Wu shouted behind him.

Pulling out a pistol, Qin Wu walked up to Tianyang and pointed it at his forehead. 

“Did I say you could leave?”

“Oh, can't I leave?”

The boy's face showed no fear, making Qin Wu uncomfortable.

A mere commoner dares to oppose me!

“You can leave, but…” Qin Wu said.

The expression on Qin Wu's face twisted. 

“Kneel down and lick my shoes clean, and I'll consider letting you go.”

Tianyang's lips curled slightly.
“You're insulting my dignity.”

Qin Wu laughed, “If I wanted to, I could throw you into the cell, and the psychopaths in there would show you what real hell is like!”

The boy lifted his chin. 

“I'm glad you said that.”


“What?”

Qin Wu was stunned.

A faint light drifted out of Tianyang's silver-gray hair.

“I wonder if you've ever heard of the three basic laws of the fortress?”

“That is the rule that overrides the fortress law, and one of them says, 'Ascenders shall not be violated! No matter who you are, individual or group, no one is allowed to attack Ascenders in any form, including provocation, harm, or verbal abuse.'”

“And when their lives are threatened, Ascenders have the right to retaliation!”

As Tianyang finished speaking, a cold light flashed across Qin Wu's wrist.

The latter's pupils dilated slightly in disbelief as his gun separated from his body.

Tianyang's hand now held a dagger.

Only then did Qin Wu notice that the boy was emitting a faint glow all over his body, a sign of his star energy manifesting externally.

The dagger slashed horizontally again.

Qin Wu felt a chill on his neck and reached up to touch it, then opened his palm.

It was stained with blood!

“You…”

He stepped back, his throat gurgling, unable to say a word.

Finally, he collapsed, his eyes wide open, as if he couldn't believe that Tianyang dared to kill him!

The boy then said, 

“Let me correct you.
Life is full of infinite possibilities, and no one's fate is predetermined.”

This time, Qin Wu couldn't refute.

As Tianyang turned to leave, something blinked in his mind.
He suddenly received information about levels, and experienced a subtle change…
