Wang Zheng was not a god. This was all he could do. His judgement was basically the same as everyone else’s – Tita had best prepare for war.
Heaven had already risen to become the military instructor of the Tita army. He was in charge of the elite troops and the Tita giants. When they met, his smile absolved all enmity. To Heaven, he had already fallen in love with this planet. A wanderer, he had always longed for a home, something to root him. Here, he had found what he wanted – respect and a family.
Heaven had married a girl from Tita. He had fallen in love with everything here, and put down roots. This place was filled with happiness and opportunity. He had learnt much from his days at Elite Academy and the Underworld. It could be said that the appearance of a pro like Heaven did not mean much in itself, but what he imparted directly raised the elites’ level.
Very few people of such standard would be willing to work such jobs. A place like Elite Academy was something only the Alliance could do.
“You punk, you haven’t been gone for that long, and you’re already stronger!” Heaven laughed.
“You got it. Some modest improvements. How is our main force’s strength?” Wang Zheng asked. This was something that he could not ask Lan Ling. Only Heaven could answer.
Heaven was, after all, someone who had seen the big picture before. He was not as prone to worry like the rest. He smiled slightly. “Only defeat lies at the end of a head-on fight. Although Diweng and Jiro are not big, their military is not small. Plus, other countries are supporting them behind the scenes. Our Tita Star can’t hold out. We can’t fight a battle on enthusiasm alone.”
“Hit and run?”
“If we lose space control, how far can we run?” Heaven asked. “We can’t avoid having to fight a few clashes. The Tita giants have rare bravery, and their current armor is not bad. If we can deal a solid blow to the enemy, the situation might be prolonged,” Heaven said.
“If I were the enemy, in order not to let tongues wag, I would use special forces,” Wang Zheng said. Heaven nodded assent. Normal troops, assembled through airdrops, were not viable. Among all the regional scuffles, they operated by letting the pirates take control of space, and then airdropping special forces into key targets. Once the command network was torn asunder, the battle would be over. All that remained would be to wrangle with the Alliance, and then rebuild with their own people in charge. All objectives would be met, and peacekeeping forces would not matter.
Tita Star should be proud. They had actually attracted Arbiter and Aslan, two big empires, to ally over them. This news meant that everyone besides the superpowers would not dare to even interfere, or risk turning into food themselves.
Wang Zheng suddenly thought of Kashawen. The first time he laid eyes on that ironwoman, he knew her heart was steel. She was cold and emotionless, and he knew she was not easily finished. But he had not thought that it would take this long. Perhaps these political types were the real snakes.
Thinking of his own runic mech, Wang Zheng knew that it did not mean much, but was better than wishes for a lost battle.
Heaven clapped Wang Zheng on the shoulder. “This is Tita Star’s chance to be reborn from the flames. Every superpower rose from such experiences. I don’t see this as a disaster, but rather a cleansing. The Tita people have always pursued freedom. At the same time, they understand gratitude and friendship. Such planets must survive in the universe. We will prevail!”
If Wang Zheng’s confidence came from a lack of fear, then Heaven’s smile was stoic, facing life and death.
“Senior, thank you.”
“Haha, it’s me that should be thanking you. Oh, my wife is pregnant. I hope it’s a boy, although I don’t know if he will look more like a human or a Tita person.” Speaking of his children, Heaven’s smile grew. The Heaven of the past had disappeared. “You? Do you have a girlfriend yet?”
“Keke, can we not talk about this?”
“Haha, you’re too reserved. One must enjoy their life. When I was your age, I was a lady killer. There are so many babes at Elite Academy. If you’re free, you should bring a few back,” Heaven said, smiling. This was someone who had seen a lot. This attitude was indomitable. In comparison, Lan Ling and Yan Xiaosu were not sleeping well.
On the field were two formations. On one side were the Tita giants, on the other, the mecha warriors. But the human mecha were few in number. On Tita Star, the main force was still comprised of giants. The mecha were mainly used to maintain order in the city. If there was a war, the Tita giants would be the main force.
Looking at the scene of training, Wang Zheng’s blood heated up.
It was clear that Heaven’s threat level assessment was very high. It was to be expected. If an Earth rank expert could not restrain them, then the Tita people’s fighting abilities were uncommon indeed.
“The breathing technique that you had Rara Durai impart is very unique. It has hastened the battle abilities of the Tita giants very quickly. It’s said that Solar System people are good at cultivation techniques. The rumor bears true,” Heaven said.
“Who is the strongest among the giants now?” Wang Zheng asked.
“If Rara Durai uses titan strength, he’s still the strongest. It is really quite amazing. All I can say is that the universe holds many marvels. If it’s normal fights, it should be Mu Zhen.” Heaven chuckled. “That giant is special, very special. He’s a mixed blood, but a rare heir of the giants’ characteristics.”
“What do you mean?”
“Looks like I’m the expert now. When humans and Tita people marry and have children, the differences are not too remarkable if it’s a girl. But if it’s a boy, they mostly take on the human genes. Mu Zhen is a rare inheritor of the giant genes. But the boy is very perceptive. I think if the opportunity presents itself, you should bring him out to see the world.”
“Call him over for a look.” Wang Zheng was feeling a little curious.
“Mu Zhen!” Heaven bellowed. From the giant formation, one walked over.
“Yes, Sir!” A giant strode forward.
Wang Zheng eyed the giant in front of him. The giant’s eyes were bright, looking curiously at Wang Zheng. They were full of passion. This was a very young giant.
“Mu Zhen, do you know who he is?”
The young person was clearly a little anxious from being unusually excited, and nodded. “Esteemed Ada, please allow me to greet you.”
Wang Zheng smiled and nodded. The giants around them displayed deep looks of envy. But the prolonged training meant that the squad’s order was very good.
Here, Heaven, who had given up on his wanderings, had revived the military soul in him.
Mu Zhen prostrated on the ground. This was the highest form of honor. On Tita Star, the number of people who were accorded such honor could be counted on one hand. And among humans, only Wang Zheng was worthy of such reception.
