Xizhou, who was so tired that his tongue was lolling out of his mouth next to him, “Let’s go?”
Who would have thought that the hero whom everyone was praising and who could drive countless women crazy was just wearing a pair of dark sungla.s.ses, a black and white plaid sweater, and jeans, and was standing outside a maternity wear store.
Inside was Rosie and w.a.n.g Xiaoqing. The former pulled out a leopard print garment from the rack and held it up against w.a.n.g Xiaoqing’s body, before it was smacked down by the latter.
w.a.n.g Xizhou, whose arms were heavy with shopping bags, said in a small voice, “Ji-dage, I truly admire you. My greatest fear is having to go out shopping with my older sister. I really don’t know where they get all that energy.”
Ji Zuoshan said, “You’re an uncle now, just take it as accompanying your nephew.”
The moment his little nephew was brought up, w.a.n.g Xizhou’s eyes lit up, but when he lowered his head again he raged, “Ji-dage, Rosie’s only buying clothes for my sister, where does getting my nephew’s stuff come into this.”
Ji Zuoshan’s response was concise and comprehensive, “Haven’t I bought them?”
He raised the bags of male and female baby clothes, milk powder, and diapers he was holding. He had none of the air of the empire’s battle G.o.d.
He said, “When I was small, I used to help my parents take care of the children, so I know what to do.”
w.a.n.g Xizhou couldn’t hide his worshipful gaze. “Ji-dage, in the future, I’ll leave the care of mine and Junyun’s kids to you.”
Ji Zuoshan smiled.
Qin Junyun, born to civilian parents, was w.a.n.g Xizhou’s deputy company commander. w.a.n.g Xizhou was the company commander, but he was hara.s.sed by his subordinate, Qin Junyun, day after day. Both of them enjoyed it immensely. Every day, w.a.n.g Xizhou would use the best soap to wash his face in order to provide the other with the best pinching experience.
w.a.n.g Xizhou once boasted shamelessly that he was spoiling his future wife.
But Ji Zuoshan had seen recordings of Qin Junyun’s battles. No matter how he looked at it, he felt like w.a.n.g Xizhou was delivering himself to his doorstep, and even tying a nice, neat bow around his own neck.
But Ji Zuoshan wouldn’t be able to make this big-ego-ed w.a.n.g Xizhou come to his senses, so he simply let him do as he wished.
w.a.n.g Xizhou leaned on the railing. Overcome with boredom, he c.o.c.ked his head and looked at Ji Zuoshan. “Ji-dage, the third sweep of the Zerg planet has already ended, so what do you plan on doing from now on?”
Ji Zuoshan raised his head and looked at Rosie’s back.
Since the outside threat had already been exterminated, then, the long-standing military tradition lost its necessity.
Now, there were already more and more people who were speaking out for equal rights in society. Ji Zuoshan planned on raising a suggestion to the military to make the annual compulsory mecha tournament non-mandatory, after letting public opinion ferment for a little longer.
They were originally already born as Betas, so if they wanted to stay as Betas, that was perfectly fine.
If they wanted to become Alphas, they definitely could, but the generous societal resources they would enjoy would be reduced by a considerable amount.
As for Omegas, there were definitely people who would want to become one, but the government would need to limit and control the number of Omegas, establish an Omega protection act, and limit Omegas to only those in aristocracy.
Following that, disarmament and other such matters would have to be continuously carried out, which would inevitably stir up a portion of the conservative faction.
This would be an incredibly long process.
But Ji Zuoshan would use his status as the empire’s battle G.o.d to make it happen.
Ji Zuoshan didn’t say too much to w.a.n.g Xizhou, simply giving the most basic summary of what he wanted to do, “……I want people to have more of a choice.”
Rosie and w.a.n.g Xiaoqing finished picking out clothes, paid, and left the store.
Her hands filled with bulging shopping bags, Rosie smiled and said, “Alright, we’ve bought all the clothes we’ll need from the second month to the tenth month.”
w.a.n.g Xiaoqing pinched her waist.
Rosie kissed her face.
w.a.n.g Xizhou covered his eyes. “Aiya.”
Ji Zuoshan was smiling, when suddenly, a man burst out from the corner and rushed straight towards w.a.n.g Xiaoqing.
Ji Zuoshan took a quick step out to stand in front of w.a.n.g Xiaoqing, silently protecting her. He turned and said, “Don’t be afraid.”
……With Ji Zuoshan there, how could w.a.n.g Xiaoqing be afraid?
Even if he randomly picked up a can of milk powder and threw it at the man, it would have the impact of a howlitzer.
But that man didn’t seem to want to attack anyone. When he was a few steps away from Ji Zuoshan, he slid to his knees, cutting a sorry figure as he shuffled forwards and wrapped his arms around Ji Zuoshan’s thigh. “Save me, please save me.”
This person seemed to be a matured Beta without any fighting ability. This was something Ji Zuoshan couldn’t quite believe—— A Beta without any fighting ability should have long since been eliminated in the tournament and turned into an Omega.
He was unkempt, with visible lice jumping around in his hair and the strong stench of stale garbage emanating from his clothes. It was extremely probable that he’d snuck in here by hitching a ride in a garbage truck.
Rosie held her hand over w.a.n.g Xiaoqing’s nose and ushered her backwards.
Ji Zuoshan squatted down. “Speak slowly.”
That person’s mental state was clearly not very good. His turbid eyeb.a.l.l.s spun wildly as he grabbed his shoulders, his entire body trembling. “Please, send me back, bring me back to the Lord G.o.d’s s.p.a.ce! I don’t want to stay here! He doesn’t even recognise me anymore, why the f.u.c.k did I still want to come back here—— I want to go home, please take me back home ha ha ha ha——”
w.a.n.g Xiaoqing furrowed her brows. “Is he insane?”
She didn’t expect that Ji Zuoshan would actually be this patient towards a tramp who’d intruded into the military service area, even stooping down and asking with a serious expression on his face, “You’re from the Lord G.o.d’s s.p.a.ce? Do…… you know Chi Xiaochi?”
A pair of dirty hands grabbed him by that lapels. He was already unable to hear anything anyone else said to him. His sharp nails scrabbled neurotically at his sweater. “Take me back, I want to go back to my own world……”
Hearing the ruckus, bodyguards came over. After apologising to Ji Zuoshan, they grabbed his hands, wanting to drag him down.
That person struggled madly. “Lord G.o.d, that b.a.s.t.a.r.d Lord G.o.d, I want to kill him!! Kill him!!”
Ji Zuoshan thought for a moment. “Wait.”
One of the bodyguards already managed to recognise him. He sucked in a breath of cold air, and his hands began to tremble with excitement.
Ji Zuoshan quietly shushed the two bodyguards, then turned to look at the man with the crazed look in his eyes. He had a guess in his heart. “Take him away. Clean him up first, don’t treat him too harshly. I’ll take him with me when I leave.”
The moment Chi Xiaochi completed his fourth world’s task, his information was instantly sent to the “s.p.a.ce Between Moments”.
Host number: No. 1198
Host name: Chi Xiaochi
World Difficulty Level a.s.sessment: A-rank
Degree of world completion: 100
Host status a.s.sessment: All functions are good and stable, can be transmitted at any time.
Total entropy value: 98 (Below average of 4190)
That bright red 98 disgusted the Lord G.o.d to the point that the folds of his brain began to tense up.
His voice was so deep that it made the skin of one’s scalp tingle, “What exactly happened?”
Since watching 061 become a mecha, the Lord G.o.d hadn’t paid any more attention to the progress of this world. After all, he still had a lot of other worlds to manage.
The AI was silent for a while. “My apologies, I was also busy with a lot of things during this period.”
The Lord G.o.d burst into a violent rage, “Didn’t I tell you to keep an eye on 061?”
The AI, “Is sir angry again.”
The Lord G.o.d, “……”

“I’ve already prepared the next world for him.” After taking a moment to calm down, the Lord G.o.d’s mood was finally settling. “Call 089 over. It’s time for his report.”
Soon, 061 came out of the store with a plastic bag. In the bag were 089’s favourite melon seeds and 023’s favourite waffles.
That eye immediately shut, the door’s lock returning to its original appearance.
When 061 brought the stuff to 023’s office, the two were currently fighting, too absorbed in their own matter to pay him any mind. He smiled and returned to Chi Xiaochi’s body.
Chi Xiaochi had chosen to go back to the tube-shaped apartments during his break again. It seemed like other than that place, he didn’t have anywhere else he particularly wanted to visit.
One human and one system communicated through the phone, even discussing what pesky problems might pop up in the next world.
Thinking of the message in ink 089 had left on the back of his hand, 061 had a bad feeling.
When the break ended, and he and Chi Xiaochi were successfully transmitted over and he saw the scene before him, he was even a little confused.
Because everything looked incredibly normal.
When Chi Xiaochi opened his eyes, he was a little surprised by the furnishing around him.
He said to himself, “A dressing room?”
This place was the very picture of a modern film set’s dressing room. There were two rows of vanities, placed against the walls, facing each other. There were many clothing racks chaotically lined together. Other than him, there was no one else in the room.
He just so happened to be facing a mirror.
Chi Xiaochi raised a hand to the corner of his eye.
This was a good-looking face, but what was even more attention-grabbing was its pair of mismatched pupils.
His left eye was lake-blue, and his right was amber. Matched with Chi Xiaochi’s lazy gaze, he looked like a Persian cat licking its claws as it lay in front of the stove.
However, as someone he suspected was an actor, his makeup wasn’t on, and his face was pale, looking to be in very bad condition.
Chi Xiaochi looked at the face in the mirror, and commented seriously, “Kidney problems, can sometimes occur after excessive activity.”
But 061 didn’t pick up on his play.
According to what Chi Xiaochi and 061 had discussed beforehand, he had initially thought that this would be some ancient world. After all, from what 061 had once said, the more worlds he went through, the further they would be from his original world.
Just as he wanted to get up and take a look around, he heard a female voice coming from the door, “Chunyang…… Aiya, why aren’t you done putting on your makeup?! The director’s getting impatient.”
A woman appeared at the door of the dressing room.
Chi Xiaochi looked over.
……The woman was gorgeous, with flawless makeup, but from her neck down, there was nothing but empty air.
Her head floated in mid-air like a balloon, smiling at Chi Xiaochi.
After that, the balloon drifted away.
Only after confirming that she had left did the breath Chi Xiaochi had been holding finally come out.
His voice sounded like a chicken that was screaming as it was being strangled, “……Liu-laoshi, what was that?!”
An unfamiliar male voice completely different from 061’s sounded in his mind, “Song Chunyang, your eighth mission has begun. Please arrive at the set on time and begin your mission.”
……Only then did Chi Xiaochi realise, that since entering this world, 061 hadn’t said a single word.
The author has something to say:
Xiaochi in the next world:
Ah ah ah ah ah ah——
