I Wanted To Be Steady But Became A War God Chapter 158


Chapter 158 Road Heights

The rooftop of Jing City Building.

In the silence, only the sound of flipping through the paper is constantly ringing.

Shen Qian didn’t look fast or slow, and the surprised look in his lowered eyes was getting stronger and stronger.

Yes, he was completely taken aback by himself.

Forty-two scavengers.

There are 18 Beginner Martial Artists from dan 7 to 9, eleven people from middle Martial Artist 1 to 5, and the remaining thirteen people are all above 6 dan Martial Artist!

There are even two people who have reached the ninth dan in Martial Artist.

And the difference between the time of their death before and after is judged to be no more than half an hour.

But Shen Qian knew that the system actually only took seven minutes.

It is also fortunate that unless the prince takes action, it is impossible to calculate such an accurate time, otherwise it is impossible to explain.

Shen Qian suddenly understood why Chai Haotian had stopped his transcript, and even classified this file as top secret.

This is actually a kind of protection in disguise.

As much as possible to erase Shen Qian’s traces in this incident, and also to cover up this appalling battle.

“Thank you.”

Shen Qian closed the file and returned it to Chai Haotian, and sincerely thanked him.

“I see your Qi, probably the same as the Martial Artist in the breakthrough just now, right?” Chai Haotian put the file into the space spar, and asked at the same time, as if he wanted to keep it in person.

Shen Qian was stunned for a moment, then suddenly realized.

He was almost deceived by his own inertial thinking.

He knew that he was a Beginner Martial Artist 2nd stage, but others didn’t know… Apparently in Chai Hao Heavenly Eye, he killed so many people with his realm as a junior Martial Artist.

…but it still seems appalling.

“The City Lord Mingjian has just broken through,” Shen Qian admitted.

Chai Haotian just stared at Shen Qian for a long time, then let out a long sigh.

“I really wanted to take you as my adopted son back then, but unfortunately, it’s a bit deliberate now.” Chai Haotian shook his head and stated his thoughts very frankly.

Shen Qian looked sideways for a while.

I take you as the city lord, but you want to be my father?

“A shocking and stunning person like you, Chai is only seen in his life!”

Chai Haotian said, “I don’t even ask you how you did it. You should treat yourself as if you haven’t been out of the city lately.”

“Thank you, City Lord!”

Seeing the explanation without further ado, Shen Qian is also sighed in relief.

Chai Haotian was silent for a few seconds, then he suddenly lifted the head as if he had made up his mind.

โ€œShen Qian, do you want to take a temporary post at City Lord’s Mansion?โ€

โ€œA temporary post?โ€ Shen Qian startled.

“Well, it’s just to hang a spare position in the secretariat. It won’t delay your schooling, but you can come to City Lord’s Mansion in your spare time to perform your duties. The secretariat is a very special department. There are a lot of things going up and down.”

Chai Haotian explained.

“Why?” Shen Qian vaguely guessed something, but wasn’t too sure.

“It’s been almost ten years since I came to Jing City in the blink of an eye. According to the rules, my term is almost over. It’s time to look for the next successor.”

Chai Haotian He didn’t hide it, he said softly.

Training me to be the next Jing City Lord?

Shen Qian raised his head in surprise, feeling that Chai Haotian was somewhat sloppy.

“I know that you worship under the prince’s family, have boundless prospects, and it is when young people are high-spirited and vigorous, you may not necessarily see the position of Lord of the entire City, but many things you do not If you don’t understand, you can listen to it and make plans.”

“City Lord, please speak.”

Shen Qian hearing this can only be nodded.

“The city owner must be Mountain And Sea, but not every Mountain And Sea is qualified to be the city owner. In addition to strength and character, there is actually a very important reason. You can Do you know?” Chai Haotian asked.

“Is it related to Dao’?” Shen Qian asked Shi Dingyan and the others before, and asked now.


Chai Haotian nodded, “There are thousands of Dao’ in this world, but there are not many avenues to the sky, and among these avenues, there is one Dao’ that has existed since ancient times, everyone can see and even touch easily.”

“The way of the emperor?” Shen Qian thought for a while, then clear comprehension.

“Or it can be referred to as the king’s way.”

Chai Haotian nodded, and then continued, “And the way of Lord of the entire City is actually the folk way, and the folk way is also a part of the king’s way. It’s easy to open up the king’s way, but it’s hard to go for a long time, so is the folk way, but if you become the Lord of the entire City, you will directly cast the Dao Foundation and rise up!”

“Sorry, City Lord Chai, I don’t quite understand, what is ‘getting up from the road’?” Shen Qian frowned.

โ€œMountain And Sea is based on Dao, Dao is the ultimate standard to measure the strength of Mountain And Sea, and Dao… has height.โ€


I have to say, Shen Qian was really sunk into this topic.

It just so happens that he has recently obtained Tantai Qin’s Dao context. If he knows more about this aspect, it will be beneficial and harmless.

Although…a Beginner Martial Artist and Mountain And Sea talk, it always feels weird.

“Where is the end of the road?” Chai Haotian seemed to be happy to talk to Shen Qian more.


This is Shi Dingyan’s original words, and Shen Qian moved it directly.

“Since you want to reach the sky, isn’t it normal to have a height?” Chai Haotian said meaningfully.

“This height…is that the height I thought?”

Shen Qian’s expression became a little weird, and he glanced at his feet subconsciously.

“It’s similar.”

Chai Haotian smiled faintly, “Take Jing City as an example, on the day I took office in Jing City, I became a Taoist, and the Taoist height was three feet tall.”

โ€œSanzhang…how strong is it?โ€

Shen Qian obviously had no idea.

“Well, the usual Mountain And Sea, I can’t say two zhang.”

“That’s not bad.”

Shen Qian probably had a point after hearing this. Feel.

In other words, the road height has exceeded the average level.

“Shen Qian, you may not understand what a special realm Mountain And Sea is now. Asking, searching for the way, clearing the way… each step must be cautious. I have seen countless talents. But after Mountain And Sea, everyone is gone.”

“It’s hard to ask, to find a way, it’s even more difficult to open a way!”

Chai Haotian looked at The starry night filled the sky, and his face was full of emotion.

“Some people start out with rapid progress, which seems to be prosperous, but it is just like a meteor, and soon stops, and even struggles for decades without an inch!”

“There are also people who can’t even take the first step. In the end, they have to go against their hearts and choose to follow the path of others, but that is almost like giving up the future, just to get a Mountain And Sea powerhouse. It’s just my identity…”

Shen Qian nodded slightly, thinking of Old Liu for no reason.

Liu Changqing has been stuck in the first step for a long time, and has disappeared recently. It is estimated that he is trying to find a breakthrough again, and he does not know when he will succeed.

“As the Lord of the entire City, most of these problems can be perfectly avoided.”

Chai Haotian turned his head and looked towards Shen Qian with a dazzling gaze.

“You don’t need to open your own way, but you don’t follow the way of others. There is still a broad future. The most important thing is that you can become Mountain And Sea in the shortest possible time!”

“Just like me, in just one day, you can even become a powerhouse in Mountain And Sea in a very short time!”

“Aren’t you Mountain And Sea before you became the lord of Jing City? Shen Qian asked suspiciously, “As long as a high Martial Artist can run for the city lord?”

“That’s not true.” Chai Haotian shook his head, “Although from a legal point of view, a Peak high Martial Artist is eligible.” , but in fact the reality is that Mountain And Sea has to line up to run for election.”

“But to become Mountain And Sea, doesn’t it already have its own way?” Shen Qian was even more puzzled.

“Who told you that there can only be one Tao?” Chai Haotian laughed.

How many paths can I take?

Shen Qian eyes shrank.

At this moment, many confusions were easily resolved in his mind.

For example, Shen Qian still can’t see what the big boss is going.

Like Shi Dingyan, the way he walks is probably related to ‘ceremony’. This is something Old Liu accidentally said, even though Shen Qian couldn’t understand it.

But if you think about it carefully, it is in line with some of the performances in Shi Dingyan normally.

And the big guy Gao gave Shen Qian the feeling that he was extremely mysterious, as if he could do anything.

Or Mr. Old Xu, it’s more than one way.

“Of course, very few Mountain And Seas can walk more than two roads, and those who have made achievements are as rare as phoenix feathers and unicorn horns. Don’t say two things.”

“And once there are more Taos, it’s easy to get confused, so most people don’t do this.”

After Chai Haotian finished explaining, he stared at Shen again. Qian, said with a smile, “Although it’s normal for Mountain And Sea to run for the city lord, but you are special, I have full confidence, the Martial Arts Department and the Chief Secretary will give you approval and let you be the city lord when you are a high Martial Artist. .”

“You already have a part of Jing City luck, coupled with your unprecedented terrifying innate talent, nothing can stop you from ascending!”

So far, Shen Qian has He probably understood what Chai Haotian thought.

The other party asked him to enter the City Lord’s Mansion to perform his duties, which is to pave the way for him.

If Shen Qian agrees, it means that he can be promoted to Mountain And Sea at the fastest speed, greatly shortening the growth time.

“City Lord, what you just said was all about the advantages of being a city owner, so what about the disadvantages?”

Shen Qian was very sober.

If the city lord is so good, it would be difficult to explain why none of his eight senior brothers and senior sisters took this path.

“Your temperament has improved a lot compared to when I first saw you.”

Chai Haotian praised without hesitation, and then said with his hands behind his back: “The disadvantage is naturally that Yes, that is, once you take over the public opinion of your city, you have a relationship with the city if one prospers, all prospers if one suffers, all suffers.”

“The people’s morality is very special, If the city is prosperous, your Dao will rise under the will of the people, but once the public opinion collapses, you will be tortured, and may even be backlashed by Dao, the most serious result…”

“Like the Lord of Lucheng. Although he was not in Lucheng at the time, when Lucheng perished, he also perished at the same time.”

Isn’t this just living and dying together?

Shen Qian understood.

In fact, he also analyzed another possible drawback.

That’s future promotion.

It is true that the folk road is a road that can increase rapidly, but the development of the city will eventually encounter bottleneck.

No matter how good you are, and you turn a third-tier city into a first-tier city, your Dao may be very high, but I am afraid that it will not reach the height of Tongtian.

The people of a city are just one city. Since the people’s way is the same as the king’s way, it has to come to an end, and I’m afraid it will include the people of the world.

This is almost impossible to do in the current social context.

“City Lord Chai, there is one more thing I don’t understand. Why do you want to help me like this?” Shen Qian didn’t quite understand.

It stands to reason that Chai Haotian is about to step down as the city lord, but he doesn’t need to think so much anymore.

“Probably because, I really hope that this city will get better and better, of course, it may also be because I am also influenced by the people’s morality and will always unconsciously contribute to the future of this city. Think about it.”

Chai Haotian glanced over the lights of the whole city, which was full of deepness.

“I…may not take this path.”

Infected by Chai Haotian’s words, Shen Qian didn’t do anything to hide it.

It is enough to bind one system, and it is too heavy to bind the lives of the whole city.

“Actually, I guessed it.” Chai Haotian’s eyes were slightly gloomy, “A top genius like you, who is not going to go to the prince who can reach the sky?”

“But please rest assured, the city lord, I, Shen Qian…Although I don’t want to be a city lord, I am also from Jing City.” Shen Qian said softly.

“That’s right, I’m the one who made the photo.”

Chai Haotian let out a long sigh and put away his sullen state, “Shen Qian, I hope your original intention will not change, Maybe Jing City… will really need you.”

“It is incumbent upon you to do what you can.” Seeing Chai Haotian’s solemn words, Shen Qian also solemnly replied.

Chai Haotian seems to be satisfied with Shen Qian’s attitude, and he casually chatted with Shen Qian for a few words before ending the conversation at this time.

“This restaurant is already closed, but when we visited late at night, the Boss came over to tell people to go on an errand for nothing. If you are not in a hurry, classmate Qian can stay and try the special dishes here, which is a must.”

Chai Haotian said with a smile, “In addition, although the incident tonight will not be recorded publicly, it should be Some rewards are still required. According to the normal reward standard, the total reward for these forty-two scavengers is 10,396,000…”

“So much?”

Shen Qian startled.

The scavenger bounty he has won before seems to be only 5,000 yuan each…

Oh, forgot, the realm of those two scavengers is only Beginner Martial Artist the following.

Thinking about this, Shen Qian was relieved again.

The average bounty of hundreds of thousands of Martial Artists is normal.

After all, the Martial Artist in the society is also a rare powerhouse among the social Martial Artist.

“It’s just that the money is going to come from the municipality, so I’ll make the decision without permission to give you a fraction and only give you 10 million.”

“It’s a small matter.”


Shen Qian, who was in a good mood instantly, readily agreed.

“By the way, does City Lord Chai know where these scavengers came from?”

Shen Qian recalled the previous question and couldn’t help asking.

“It’s still under investigation.”

Chai Haotian looked the head after hesitating.

Shen Qian vaguely felt that the other party still had something to say, but he didn’t ask much.


Farewell to Chai Haotian, Shen Qian looked at the Boss who was waiting next to him, but he really stayed and planned to try this restaurant, which is very popular in the city. A speciality of the famous Garden Restaurant.

Faced with a big meal, Shen Qian also opened a bottle of 77-year-old red wine extravagantly.

โ€œHow can you drink alone when you have a good wine on your side?โ€

Shen Qian had just finished sobering up and was about to pour it into a glass when a chuckle was already heard.

Shen Qian turned back and saw a long-haired youth with a wooden sword on the edge of the rooftop, watching Shen Qian with a smile.

โ€œFifth Senior Brother?โ€

Shen Qian stood up in surprise.

The person here is Ling Xiao, who has not been seen for some time.

“The breath has grown significantly again, not bad.”

Ling Xiao looked at Shen Qian, satisfied with the nodded, then sat over, each minding their own business and poured a glass of wine .

โ€œFifth Senior Brother, how come you are back to Jing City?โ€ Shen Qian and Ling Xiao clink glasses and say strangely at the same time.

“Naturally it’s because of you.” Ling Xiao laughed again.

โ€œMe?โ€ Shen Qian was stunned.

“The formation of the sky.”

Ling Xiao simply spit out four words.

Shen Qian reacted instantly, because he took back the Dao Shi, and the boss Gao also set up a sky-shattering formation that could benefit all people of cause and effect.

In truth, the direct disciples of the big bosses are naturally the first to bear the brunt.

“Little Junior Brother, I really didn’t expect. I haven’t helped you yet, but I have to touch your light first.” Ling Xiao said with emotion.

“Sorry, Fifth Senior Brother’s words are too outrageous. Didn’t you help me without Yagu?” Shen Qian waved his hand.

After finishing speaking, Shen Qian’s heart moved, and then he asked, “Then will all the senior brothers and senior sisters come back this time?”

“Well, at least the senior brothers and sisters will come back. Part of it, there may be some who really can’t walk away.” Ling Xiao nodded.

Shen Qian’s curiosity suddenly revived.

Eight senior brother and senior sister, four of whom he has dealt with already.

Third Senior Brother is elegant and reliable, Fifth Senior Brother is smart and reliable, Eight Senior Sister is soft and reliable, Old Liu…not to mention.

But I don’t know what the other four legs look like?
