Ch70 – I Hear I’m a Battle G.o.d (7)
Chi Xiaochi ignored his mockery, going straight into the cabin of his mecha.
The nerve connection signal was transmitted to the main frame and connected with the main system. Chi Xiaochi’s field of view opened up. He felt as if his body had become one with the mecha. His vision, sense of touch, were all completely a.s.similated.
There were countless sparring rooms in the mecha academy, seperated into those for public and private use.
This was one of the public sparring rooms, with an area similar to that of a standard track and field court. It was surrounded by a sphere of grade 6 reinforced gla.s.s, which could withstand the full force of a 1000 ton mecha. Its purpose was to allow students to fight, as well as for others to watch and learn.
Of course, it was also a place for those who were aggressive, fierce and br.i.m.m.i.n.g with energy to duel.
Zhan Yanchao stared closely at Ji Zuoshan’s new mecha, his expression hard to read.
Ji Zuoshan used to have his own personal mech, which had been designed together by him and Zhan Yanchao.
He had wanted it to be painted blue, but Zhan Yanchao didn’t like that, thinking that it didn’t look good. He grabbed the drawing, changed it to white on his own initiative and said forcefully, “My mecha is black, we need to have couple colours!”
Even now, he still remembered the stunned look in Ji Zuoshan’s and the tinge of red on his cheeks. “What couple……”
Zhan Yanchao loved this look of his to death. He proudly wrapped his arm around his shoulders. “It’s us, of course. What, have I wronged you, Ji Zuoshan?”
Ji Zuoshan lowered his gaze, looking very cool and calm. “No.”
Zhan Yanchao’s heart moved. Without even thinking about it beforehand, he placed a loud, rough kiss on the reddest part of Ji Zuoshan’s cheek.
This was their very first intimate contact, which in the end turned into a farce —— Ji Zuoshan wouldn’t kiss him, and Zhan Yanchao was the type to not care about anything else when something caught his attention. The more Ji Zuoshan resisted, the more Zhan Yanchao wanted him to kiss him. They pushed back and forth, rolled here and there, until Zhan Yanchao got annoyed, and bit into Ji Zuoshan’s neck, the taste of blood filling the gaps between his snow-white teeth.
Ji Zuoshan didn’t make any exclamations of pain. He just sat on the gra.s.s and held a hand to his bleeding wound as he helplessly made a statement of fact, “……You bit me again.”
Zhan Yanchao said, sounding pleased with himself, “Who asked you to not kiss me. You brought this on yourself.”
Thinking of that scene, then seeing the Ji Zuoshan in someone else’s mecha once more, Zhan Yanchao’s eyes turned bloodshot with rage, both angered and wronged, and also filled with a rush of ruthlessness. He even started to hate that extra mecha.
……It needed to be beaten until it exploded!
It was said that a gentleman doesn’t stand under a dangerous wall. This dangerous wall that was Zhan Yanchao was more well-known of a danger. Currently, the only one willing to stand next to him, was only one Rosie.
She hadn’t wanted to or planned on standing next to Zhan Yanchao either. It was just that only after the crowd around them scattered like a flock of birds, did she notice that Zhan Yanchao was already standing less than five feet away from her.
Rosie just shot him a single glance, then turned away.
This place had the best view. Besides, she didn’t have the habit of giving way to others.
Compared to herself, she was more worried about Ji Zuoshan.
The mecha she had given to Ji Zuoshan had only average combat capabilities, and the AI program that had been inserted within was one from her family’s service that had gone through slight editing and improvements.
If Rosie was remembering correctly, the last host it had was a sweeper robot.
Rosie was also a new transfer student. She didn’t know each and every student’s personal mechas, so when she saw the heavy-duty mecha that the person had piloted out, she was stunned slightly. However, she recovered after a moment.
She pulled an energy drink out of her carry-on bag and drank it slowly.
Mechas were just tools. The thing she was here to see was Ji Zuoshan’s combat ability.
If Ji Zuoshan wasn’t worthy, if the mecha was destroyed, it would remain destroyed.
If Ji Zuoshan was worthy, she could even make him ten mechas.
The low hum of the engine started up from behind him. The race car-esque rumbling pushing at his back made Chi Xiaochi’s back burn.
Even with the air conditioning, Chi Xiaochi had started to sweat.
This tension came from this body’s fighting instincts.
Being able to officially use a combat mecha once more, this body already couldn’t help but tremble with excitement. His bones which had once been turned cold were soaked in hot blood. It was like he was being bitten by ants, making his body burn with itchiness.
Ji Zuoshan could just barely suppress his voice, so that its trembling/tremor wouldn’t be too obvious.
He asked Chi Xiaochi, “I, what extent to which should I beat him.”
Chi Xiaochi looked at the other party.
And the other party, in his giant rugged, muscled, copper yellow military level mecha already couldn’t wait any longer. It clenched its giant steel fists, and provoked, “Come on, dwarf.”
Chi Xiaochi asked Ji Zuoshan, “How long has it been since you last fought?”
Ji Zuoshan thought for a moment. “A very long time.”
He’d become an Omega, then had to wait in the darkness for so long. He thought that he’d long since decayed.
But now, at this very moment, standing in front of an opponent once more, he found that he hadn’t forgotten a thing.
Not only had he not forgotten, after so many years, his instincts were still as intense as raging flames, burning until each and every one of his bones were crackling.
Chi Xiaochi asked him, “Can you still fight?”
In this round of questions and answers, Ji Zuoshan’s voice had changed slightly, like a piece of iron had just been pulled out of a thousand degree furnace, burning bright gold, liquid slag still flowing across its surface, looking as flexible as a piece of cheese.
And when this piece of cheese met the cold air, it slowly solidified, those bright flames on its surface fading and restoring its original colour, but it had already become steel.
“You don’t need to hide for anyone, and you don’t need to worry about anyone,” Chi Xiaochi said, “Fight this battle for yourself.”
The other party had already become impatient. Seeing that the mecha had stopped after taking a few steps, as if it didn’t know what to do. Even thinking that the other had come to a late realisation about his own capabilities, he couldn’t help but say contemptuously, “Want to admit defeat? Fine, you……”
It was at that very moment, that the dark blue mecha moved.
The thrusters below its feet immediately shot straight to full force. Starting from “fine”, and ending at “you”, the mecha had already slid forwards to stand before the abnormally large mecha at an incredible speed!
Even Ji Zuoshan, who had already taken back control of his body, hadn’t expected that this mecha’s thrusters would be this stellar, but after just a moment, he caught up with the mecha’s speed.
After the sharp, long screech of its two feet sliding across the ground, its right foot pushed off, jumping up at a distance about three metres away from the other, flipping over his shoulder, light as a sparrow hawk, while a pair of steel fingers shot out like lightning as he flipped over and straightened up, pinching the other’s neck.
In the other party’s eyes, before that fast-moving mecha reached him, it had jumped up, and suddenly disappeared.
What the f.u.c.k……
In the very next moment, a terrifying feeling of suffocation came from his neck.
Before that person could react, his entire mecha had been grabbed by the throat and swung backwards!
In the moment where he was in mid-air, his mind was blank.
Meanwhile, in the eyes of all the onlookers, after Ji Zuoshan’s mecha flipped over that person’s mecha’s shoulders, he locked its hand around his throat, and with a bend of his waist, dragged the entire mecha off of the ground. When his two feet landed steadily on the ground, he then, grabbing the other mecha’s neck, in a beautiful suplex, threw that tank-esque mecha over his shoulder and onto the ground with a loud bang!
The students who had just been chattering noisily fell into a collective daze.
Rosie, biting onto her straw, sucked in a sharp breath. Even Zhan Yanchao had a face full of disbelief.
A thunderous noise sounded. Ji Zuoshan’s mecha, kneeling on one knee, lifted its head. Its white eye lights suddenly turned into the bright red of battle mode.

Without waiting for any response from the heavy mecha, Ji Zuoshan sprung forwards and held it down.
Even if he wanted to show others, he wouldn’t be able to pa.s.s the barrier that was Zhan Yanchao.
Zhan Yanchao didn’t allow him to spar with others, only with him. And while in front of Zhan Yanchao, he was often scared of hurting him too much, so he would stop at mere taps every time.
Ji Zuoshan had never been an ambitious person. The things he cared about where all firmly planted in reality, like his younger siblings, and like Zhan Yanchao.
Now, this was Ji Zuoshan’s first time trying to find his own limits.
Overwhelming spiritual power was terrifying to any creature.
It was a power that forced people to instinctively submit, fear, and even dread.
Not just the person before him, even the Chi Xiaochi sharing a body was given a headache from that intense spiritual power.
But before the pain could spread, it was as if in a place beyond his reach, a pair of hands gently closed over his eyes, keeping all the discomfort out.
Chi Xiaochi thought he’d gotten used to it.
But in a place he couldn’t see, 061 dived into the sea of data, and, using the vast data to form walls, built a dense, airtight fortress for the portion of spiritual energy belonging to Chi XIaochi.
After that spiritual energy calmed down from its confusion, it looked left and right, like a restless hamster.
061 couldn’t help but laugh.
He integrated himself into the fortress, and, using his own spiritual energy, gently poked the hamster’s cheek.
Ji Zuoshan already had an absolute advantage, but he didn’t stop.
Because Ji Zuoshan still hadn’t reached his limit.
This steel mech before him became his best test subject.
His spiritual power multiplied the limits of his physical body by several factors. He ripped open the back armour plate of the mecha like he was ripping open a cardboard box.
That person was already about to be scared crazy.
“Ji Zuoshan, don’t tear…… Don’t tear it!”
Mecha strength, 70%.
“Ji Zuoshan, Ji Zuoshan, don’t f.u.c.king fight anymore, hear me?”
Mecha strength, 55%.
“Don’t fight anymore, I admit defeat, I admit defeat!!”
Mecha strength, 30%.
“You…… you’re f.u.c.king crazy!”
Mecha strength, 9%.
When he was forcefully pulled out of the destroyed cabin, his entire psyche almost collapsed under the view that a.s.saulted his vision and the pressure of Ji Zuoshan’s mental power.
Mecha strength, 0%.
The mecha fell to pieces, its arms and legs scattering across the floor.
Through the intense ringing in his ears, he heard Ji Zuoshan’s cold voice, “I told you, rather than fight me, you’d be better off jumping out the window in your mecha.”
