“Then, someone came running towards me telling that my brother is a martial art genius who only appears once every millennium… You’ve turned from a good-for-nothing into something else entirely, so much so that your personality and attitude has changed as well. It’s as if you’ve turned into someone else.”
Kong Xinxue’s expression turned serious.
“Be honest. Who exactly are you?”
“I am your brother.” Garen thought for a while before replying.
“Stop acting dumb! Be honest. We have a huge circle of friends. We will eventually know who you really are even if you act dumb.” Kong Xinxue smiled coldly. “Furthermore, you don’t seem to be hiding your identity at all from the very beginning. Were you not planning to hide this truth?”
“What are you talking about, I don’t understand what you’re saying at all.”
“Stop acting cute!!!” Kong Xinxue glared at him. “This world is a resting point for us. Spill the beans. We’ve encountered many of you outsiders who barged in without going through inspection!”
Although Garen was slightly stunned on the outside, his heart was already sinking from the huge tidal waves.
He did not expect that Kong Xinxue was also a Transmigrator! Furthermore, there seemed to be more than one Transmigrator in this world!!!
“What do you mean ‘this world’?” Garen continued acting oblivious.
“Huhu…” Kong Xinxue laughed coldly.
As they stared at each other in the eyes, they both had already known the truth.
“Fine…” Garen nodded. “I have just arrived in this world not long ago and entered Kong Xiaofei’s body. Do you have anything else you wish to ask?”
He decided to be honest with her as he didn’t see any signs of lying from Kong Xinxue as well. Hence, it would be fair to assume that whatever she had said was the truth.
“Well, aren’t you pretty good in acting…” She continued smiling coldly. Now that she had confirmed that the Kong Xiaofei wasn’t the person she knew, her attitude towards him had distanced and was no longer as close as it used to be.
“I have seen many closet perverts like you who would say things implicitly and act cold on the outside and feel sexually passionate from the inside. Each and every one of you is a hypocrite who would act innocent on the surface and has been suppressing your twisted desire inside.”
She pondered for a moment before continuing. “Do you know what I wish to do the most right now?”
“I want to punch you.”
“…” Garen blinked. “You can’t win against me.” He said with utmost sincerity.
“…” Kong Xinxue was speechless. “Do you know what the phrase one needs to lose some in order to gain what one desires mean?”
“I do.” Garen didn’t understand the reason she told him that.
“If you wish to f*ck me, you better not hit back!!” Kong Xinxue then stood up swiftly as she threw a punch towards Garen’s face.
Her fist stopped right in front of Garen’s face, which was less than half a centimeter away. Her fist was single-handedly caught firmly by Garen.
“I’ll tell.” He looked hopelessly at Kong Xinxue who was well within reach. “Can’t you be a bit normal? Weren’t we having a civilized conversation? How did that unfold into this now?”
“You killed my beloved brother. Do you expect me to be grateful and treat you as my best friend?” Kong Xinxue’s expression turned ice cold.
“You… I shouldn’t have placed any hope on a mentally challenged person.” Garen was speechless as he sighed.
The moment he loosened his hand, Kong Xinxue turned her body around and side kicked Garen’s waist.
Her leg was caught firmly by Garen once more.
While her small leg in black stocking was in Garen’s hand, the important detail was not of this. As Kong Xinxue had her leg raised up high, Garen was able to see everything underneath the dress from his point of view…
He could vaguely see a white triangular shape underneath the black stocking.
“See. You’re indeed a pervert!” Kong Xinxue put her leg away as if nothing had happened. “You even dared to peak at your own biological sister!” Perhaps she had realized that she could not win against Garen, so she decided to stop trying.
“You must be an extremely cruel and merciless man in the past.”
“Why do you say so?” Garen sat in his original position firmly, as if he did not make any move at all.
“You didn’t even give me a chance despite how beautiful I am.” Kong Xinxue calmly sat down and she did not seem to be embarrassed about showing what was underneath her dress. Her action assured Garen even more that she was a weird person.
“To yield in and let you punch me?” Garen was speechless.
“Alright, let’s stop talking nonsense. As a Transmigrator, I have the duty to introduce you to people like us nearby so that you can have a better understanding of our internal social network.”
“What social network? Do you have a lot of associates in this world?” Garen was interested in this topic. It was rather stressful to be with this oddball on a daily basis as one small mistake and he would be branded as a pervert.
“A lot? It’s a handful I guess since we have dozens of people. Since this place is where everything started so a lot of people gathered here.” When Kong Xinxue calmed down, she was actually rather lady-like. Her beautiful and elegant face, white dress, black stockings and long hair had made her look extremely seductive.
“It’s been a while since everyone gathered. Perhaps I can suggest everyone to meet up.”
“Do all Transmigrators originate from the same place?” Garen asked another question after thinking for a while.
“No. Not at all.” Kong Xinxue shook her head. “Technically speaking, there is no single location. Although some may come from Earth, they are from a different parallel universe. Naturally, most of them come from Earth and the minorities come from somewhere else. I do not know the reason behind this but this is the current situation.”
“Also,” she gave him a respectful look. “Don’t be conceited that you’re strong. There are many Transmigrators who are very powerful as well.”
“What’s the name?” Garen nodded. “There should be a name for this Transmigrator organization right?”
“Of course there is.” Kong Xinxue stood up. “It’s called Lighthouse.”
Garen did not expect that the members of the Lighthouse would give each other a helping hand. According to the intel from Kong Xinxue, not everyone inside had stood at the pinnacle of the world. Most of them were at the middle or above average level and a handful of them had reached the very top. However, the majority of them were at the below average and lower level.
All of them would exchange resources and help each other so that everyone could improve together. That was the motto of the Lighthouse. Afterall, the worlds were incredibly huge and everyone had their own unique system. Hence they should be able to exchange their knowledge no matter what.
Everyone nearby was soon told of the gathering.
Kong Xinxue departed together with Garen ten minutes earlier to a fancy restaurant nearby. Although there was a sign stating that it was closed at the entrance of the restaurant, both of them entered without having any regard for others and locked the door. There were about seven to eight people already sitting in the transparent glass chair by the glass table. All of them seemed to be chatting about happily among each other.
They were in a variety of uniforms such as police, white-collar worker, technician, housewife, and student.
The moment Garen and Kong Xinxue entered, A fat middle-aged man walked up and welcomed them.
“Welcome, welcome! Ah Xue, it’s been a long time since you invited us for a gathering.” The fat man smiled, giving off a friendly and peaceful vibe.
“I’ve brought a new person along so that everyone can get to know him. Everyone feel free as I may have to trouble you all once again .” It was rare to see Kong Xinxue being so polite and formal.
“No problem! I’ll take care of him.” The man patted his chest as he said with alacrity. “You are…”
“Garen,” Garen told him his name on his own accord.
“Nice to meet you.”
“Nice to meet you.”
Both of them shook hand and the first impression was great. As Transmigrators, they could not determine their age based on their physical appearances. Hence everyone did not care that Garen looked like a kid.
“Alright let’s hear it from everybody. As the Plot is just around the corner, what do you guys plan to do?” Kong Xinxue sat down as she gave off a vibe of a leader.
Garen followed along as he sat in a chair beside her. No one felt strange seeing two similar faces sitting side by side.
“Why don’t we transmigrate?” A technician uncle who was drinking alcoholic drink quietly suggested as he frowned. “I’ve been to two worlds, three if you include this one. The problem with facing against the Plot is that it is dangerous. The Plot is not something that could be easily changed. If it were that easy, there wouldn’t be so many predecessors dying in the middle of their journey.”
“Where do you want to transmigrate to? This world is the safest world around. The Power Level here is low and the constraint of the universe is extremely high. Isn’t it more troublesome to go somewhere else?” The policewoman curled her lips. “All I did was hiding here and there as I tried to move forward in the previous world. Ultimately, I died due to unforeseen circumstances. Just thinking of it annoys me.”
“Li Hua is right. We can still gauge which area is still safe or not if we are within the Plot. However, once we are out of the Plot, we will be placed in the dark. I think it’s best for us to play by the ear and avoid the dangerous zones of the Plot. The Slayer is one of the dangerous points among the Four Great Cornerstones and the remaining three should be relatively safe.” The housewife agreed as she added on.
“Are we not going to introduce the new member?” A woman suggested.
Garen stood up and picked up his wine glass as he looked around. “My name is Garen. I’ve recently transmigrated into this world and I wish to be part of the team as soon as possible.” He was quick to earn everyone’s friendliness with his smile and his educated manner.
Soon, everyone present told him that he could inquire them anything if he needed help.
Garen then obtained the means to contact everyone before sitting down and continue listening to their discussion.
“Everyone should be aware of the Slayer of the Four Great Cornerstone’s ability. He possesses every slaying technique in this world. He can learn any assassination technique by just looking at it once and is seriously overpowered. To make things worse, we also have this world’s constraint as well. He, who is one of the Four Great Cornerstone will never die. Who would be able to fight against a killing machine that can’t be killed?” The technician uncle said hopelessly.
“Can we request for support? The people we have here that know how to fight are mainly Li Hua and Yong He and the rest of us are just career professionals. If we are in trouble, isn’t our only option is to be reincarnated? It would be difficult to contact one another if that were to happen.” The woman frowned as she explained.
“What level of assistance can we request based on our current Contribution Points?” Kong Xinxue asked calmly.
“I’ve just obtained a hundred points from the ultimate cake quest.”
“I’ve just finished collecting the consultation. I have about a hundred and fifty points left including the ones that I didn’t use last time.”
“I can only fork out two hundred points. I need to save some to purchase my medicine since this world does not have the medicine that could cure my illness…” The young woman said helplessly.
“I can fork out three hundred points.” Kong Xinxue said firmly. “I’ll note down the number of Contribution Points that everyone had pooled in. Let’s try and collect more Contribution Points in these coming days so that we can afford to hire a high-level helper. Although the Slayer’s ability is very troublesome, he would not be able to learn the techniques of a powerhouse that specializes in sealing and dealing heavy damage instead of killing.”
“That’s a good idea.”
