Chapter 15

The Beta Lieutenant Colonel who died for his country (15)

Translated by: Niladri


Six hours until the final stage of the Queen’s evolution.


Carlo felt a little uneasy and sensed something big was about to happen. His sixth sense had always been accurate, because the last time this feeling occurred was when his father had died.


Carlo began to recall his conversation with Andrew a few days ago. These few days, whenever emotions such as frustration, despair, or resentment clouded his mind, Carlo would recall that conversation to save himself from falling into desperation.


On that day, Andrew had said: “When Thunder Gale performs the mission to assassinate the Queen, I will bring away a member of my squad with a similar body structure to yours and hand over his identity (documents). You will take the opportunity to go on the mission instead of him. This is your best chance to prove yourself. As long as you make great achievements in the mission, the commander will definitely look towards you (favourably) and let you stay.” 1


As Carlo was immersed in his thoughts, the door to the confinement room was opened. It was Andrew who came in, carrying in a person whose face was hidden, on his shoulder.


“Exchange clothes with him, and then I will take you out.” He put the man on the bed, then turned and kept an eye on the door.


Carlo quickly changed his clothes and put a quilt on the person lying in bed. He suddenly felt something in the back of his neck, but the feeling quickly passed. He turned back, only to see Andrew’s hand retreating from his neck.


“There was some dirt.” Andrew smiled slightly: “I want you to buckle yourself up for the task, I believe you can do it.”


Carlo squinted and nodded. Andrew had always been so gentle, unlike Xiu Yi Te. Although he was very caring towards him, his attitude had always been awkward. What was even worse was that even if they were together in the same place, Adjutant Reiner would be there as well.


Even though Adjutant Reiner was always cold towards Xiu Yi Te, every time he saw Reiner, his whole person would rush forward like a big dog trying to please its master. Oops, it’s not so good to think such things. Carlo secretly stuck out his tongue.


But even then, only Xiu Yi Te could make Carlo have the feeling of being close to one’s heart and someone he could depend on. Anyway, Lieutenant Colonel Reiner was just a Beta, they were just good friends. Since an Omega must marry an Alpha, he will only choose Xiu Yi Te. Carlo had thought so secretly in his heart more than once.


Five hours until the final stage of the Queen’s evolution.


“What’s this situation? Is Thunder Gale up to some mischief?”


“Is there an Omega mixed in?”


“Such an important task, they’re treating the fate of mankind as a joke!”


“Must do a thorough investigation, there must have been some shady deals”.


“I think this must be a conspiracy of the Zerg. According to my many years of research, the Zerg must have evolved into a parasitic bug. The Omega must have been taken over by the Zerg to sabotage the plan for assassinating the Queen…”


“Really? Have the Zergs really evolved into a parasitic bug? It’s terrible.”


“I have been guaranteed by my squad, yes, people who are interested can go to my personal homepage and have detailed research reports.”


“Wow, it’s my idol, Mr. Xiu Yi Te is just way too strong~”


The chaos in the tactical hall was broadcast live on Star Network; the whole Star Network was seething with excitement, and messages were rising at a rate of millions per second.


Lu Heng looked at Xiu Yi Te and slowly approached the center of chaos, trying to bring Carlo to the isolation room. However, there were too many people around Carlo, and the strength of the team was so strong that there was no way to stun so many elite fighters in a short time. What’s more, Xiu Yi Te also began to be affected by Carlo’s pheromone, and his mind started to become clouded.


Carlo’s pheromone was very strange. Even the Beta Reiner could smell the sweetness in the air that was saccharine and greasy, almost capable of causing suffocation like drowning in water. Not to mention the Alpha in the mechs, the more powerful the Alpha, the more they seemed to respond to this pheromone, it was simply not possible to resist approaching Carlo.


This isn’t right; Carlo seems to have been injected with hormone element. Hormone elements were used by Omega that had defective glands and could help them successfully go into estrus. However, a healthy and pure Omega, with the use of hormone element, could probably make the Alphas of the entire planet lose their minds.


He saw that the situation was continuing to spiral out of control. The army of armored mechs was already battered and bloody even without entering the battlefield. The members of Thunder Gale’s mech division were all the crème de la crème; every casualty would be a great loss.


Lu Heng made a decisive link to the intelligent system of the Starship and quickly certified his identity: “Start Emergency Plan X.”


A mechanical voice was broadcast: “Starting Emergency Plan X will release high-concentration hypnotic gas in the starship. This gas is only effective on Omega in estrus and Alpha affected by Omega pheromone. After inhalation, sleep time is 24 hours. Confirm commencement?”




A few minutes later, the chaotic hall restored its calm. Unexpectedly, Xiu Yi Te still stood still, his eyes were red, and he was weakly walking towards Lu Heng, swaying. Lu Heng walked forward a few steps and caught him before he fell.


Xiu Yi Te grabbed Lu Heng and the blue veins on the back of his hands were visible: “Lieutenant Colonel Reiner, I order you to force me to wake me up.”


Xiu Yi Te knew Lu Heng too well. He knew that Lu Heng would continue to perform tasks, but it was inevitable that if a single person went, he wouldn’t return.


“From prior cases, forced awakening has been observed to lead to the collapse of the spiritual field, the level of spiritual power will be reduced to F, and you will no longer be able to drive a mech.” Lu Heng’s tone was still calm.


“Damn the f*cking spiritual force! Damn the f*cking mech! I don’t care! I only care about you!” Xiu Yi Te’s arms were like a pair of steel tongs, and Lu Heng’s hands felt faintly painful. He had red eyes, and they were glaring daggers. He wanted to stab himself in order to stay awake. It’s just that the struggle was futile, and after a while, Xiu Yi Te eventually succumbed to fainting because of the medicine.


There were very few people standing in the hall, all of them were Beta. The remaining few combatants were not enough to perform the tasks as originally planned.


Lu Heng’s calm and indifferent face made the panicked crowd calm down a bit. One person asked: “Lieutenant Colonel Reiner, what should we do now?”


“Start the emergency defense protocol.” Lu Heng issued a methodical command, and let the rest of the people move the sleeping Alphas in the hall back to their room. Then he went to Carlo to examine him carefully and found a very fine needle hole in the back of his neck.


It seemed that some people tried to help Carlo and brought him out of the confinement room. As for who this person was, Lu Heng had a guess in his heart, but he still needed tangible evidence.


Lu Heng would be going to the Queen’s Nest alone. Their original plan was to retreat after the success of the assassination. This required two people to cooperate; if one did not consider retreating, with Lu Heng’s ability, this task could also be completed by one person.


{You haven’t done anything before and now that the moment of your death has arrived, how were you able to gather the attention of the public in such an imposing manner?} The little assistant who had been watching was finally unable to hold back and mentally asked Lu Heng its doubts. As a newcomer, Lu Heng was really good. The entire job was smooth and natural and did not warrant issuing an OOC warning even once. 2


{Do you know what the butterfly effect is? The light brain that I deliberately damaged was the wing of this little butterfly.}


{I have started to admire you a bit. Then are you going to die now? Don’t be afraid, our little assistants have their own pain immunity system. In order to prevent employees from having psychological shadows, the death in the task is painless!}


{Not in a hurry, I have to light a few fires.}


Lu Heng picked up Carlo, who was in a coma, and left the shooting range of the holographic camera. The people on Star Network were shocked by Lu Heng’s decisive hypnosis. All the big-shot Alphas on Star Network were shocked. Until Lu Heng disappeared in front of the camera, they recovered.


“He just forcibly hypnotized the 90% of Thunder Gale? He doesn’t plan to perform the task?”


“Reiner Hart is a sinner of all mankind! Thunder Gale’s failure of this mission should be sewn in the cloth having “shame” written on it!”


“Strongly demanding that Reiner Hart be court-martialed! He should be sentenced to exile for a lifetime!”


“I suspect that he is also a Zerg spy. This parasitic bug is terrible!”




Regardless of how Star Network was raging, Lu Heng had no energy to spare. After throwing Carlo onto the bed in the confinement room, he found a very small device from a crack in the ceiling.


There, Lu Heng had placed an anti-shielding camera placed in the confinement room. Lu Heng knew that there was a traitor in Thunder Gale, but he couldn’t confirm his identity before putting Carlo in. After Carlo’s accidental estrus, the mysterious man left behind some clues, and several encrypted communications monitored by the Starship Intelligence System were kept as evidence.


Although he couldn’t decipher the content of the communications, they let Lu Heng know what the mysterious man and the forces behind him were planning to do. He had always done a thorough job and placed anti-shielding cameras in key locations on the starship.


This kind of camera would not be affected by a shielding field. Lu Heng got it from Alex. Only, this technology was still in the experimental stage, and it wasn’t finalized. The lifetime of the camera was extremely short, and after recording once, it had to be scrapped. Only at this critical moment, Lu Heng was willing to bring them out.


Lu Heng brought out the images, and what happened in the confinement room in recent days was recorded. The most important thing was Andrew’s scene with Carlos. Finding the person of interest3, Lu Heng contacted Alex and asked him to help investigate all of Andrew’s communication records since he entered Thunder Gale.


Three hours until the final stage of the Queen’s evolution.


The angry Star Network people saw the holographic image in front of them suddenly switch. What appeared in front of them was Lu Heng sitting behind his desk.


“I am the adjutant of Thunder Gale, Lieutenant Colonel Reiner. Now I will report the results of the investigation.” Lu Heng in front of the camera still looked the same, with furrowed brows, a straight mouth, and an extremely serious look..


Lu Heng posted the video records from the camera and the communication records of Andrew and Wayne on Star Network, including the encrypted communication saying, “sabotage the mission at all costs.”


Star Network suddenly burst out like a boiling pot, because Admiral Wayne had always appeared in front of the public as an image of integrity, and because they filthily competed for power and disregarded the importance of the overall situation, making them feel guilty about crazily insulting Thunder Gale and Lu Heng.


“I have always said that Thunder Gale and Lieutenant Colonel Reiner were innocent. He is the glory of our Beta. The person I admire most is him!”


“These things cannot be forged?”


“What fart, those video records are all in military encoded format. Can you fake one for me?”


“But what about the assassination of the Queen? I live on the Blue Dream Star. We are often attacked by the Zerg. My father and brother are both dead under the claws of the Zerg. It’s hard, I thought this would allow us to live our days in peace…”


“Damn Wayne! Damn! He should be court-martialed, he should be sentenced to death!”


“Yes, you should restore capital punishment for Wayne!! This hypocrite, this scum!”


The public opinion on Star Network changed to another trend. Lu Heng glanced roughly and indifferently exited the screen.
