Chapter 448 A bloody calamity
The fortune teller did not know whether to laugh or cry. “I’m a fortune-teller. If you ask me to interpret dreams, calculate your chances of marriage or future prospects, I can do that for you. But why would you ask me to solve a math problem? That’s science, while I’m a practitioner of magic. The two don’t mix.”
Ren Xiaosu remained silent for a moment before saying, “You said you can interpret dreams, right?”
“That’s right.” The fortune teller nodded enthusiastically. “I can interpret all kinds of dreams.”
Ren Xiaosu said, “Then listen carefully. I had a dream about a question related to quadratic function f(x)…”
The fortune teller was dumbfounded. ‘What fucking dream is that? Can’t a guy help others read their fortunes even if he does not know how to solve quadratic functions! What the hell!’
Ren Xiaosu sneered. “You can’t interpret that, right? So you’re really a fraud.”
But the fortune teller suddenly said, “Based on your facial structure, I can tell that you have a friend who’s like family but is not related to you by blood. I also know you’ve experienced a turning point in your life at the age of 17, while water is the source of your mishaps!”
This time, it was Ren Xiaosu’s turn to be stunned. However, he still did not believe the fortune teller. He lifted him off his feet and asked coldly, “Just who the hell are you? How did you know these things?”
His “younger brother” was Yan Liuyuan, and didn’t Ren Xiaosu experience the greatest calamity of his life in that flood? Even though the fortune teller mentioned all these, Ren Xiaosu’s natural instincts told him not to believe this was something that could be figured out through divination. Instead, it was likely that some people with ulterior motives who knew about those matters were using it to get close to him.
But when the fortune teller noticed that Ren Xiaosu did not believe him, he smiled wryly. “I can also tell that you got into grave danger when you were in your teens, but you probably don’t even know how you managed to escape it. The Northwest is where you will prosper. If you still don’t believe me, there’s nothing I can
Ren Xiaosu loosened his grip on the fortune teller. Very few people knew about his past, and not even those back at Stronghold 113’s town knew about it. But it was true that he really did not know how he had escaped from the wolves.
This fortune teller dared to bring up something like that with such certainty, so could he really know how to read fortunes?
Ren Xiaosu pondered for a moment before saying, “You’re saying that I will face a bloody calamity in the next two days?”
“That’s right. It’s extremely ominous!” The fortune teller said, “But I didn’t get to look at it carefully just now, so you’ll have to let me have a look again.”

Ren Xiaosu said noncommittally, “Then divine for me how to resolve it.”
Then Ren Xiaosu released his grip from the fortune teller. However, he kept his guard up in case the fortune teller sneak attacked or attempted to escape.
However, the fortune teller did not try to escape. Instead, he turned around and carefully observed Ren Xiaosu, who put on an expressionless face. If the fortune teller told him he would have to pay up to avert the calamity, he would kill him on the spot.
But the more the fortune teller looked at him, the more startled his expression became. “You won’t fucking be the one facing the bloody calamity, you’ll be the one bringing a bloody calamity upon others…”
Ren Xiaosu was speechless.
“What nonsense!” Ren Xiaosu’s heart skipped a beat but refused to admit it. “I’m just a resident of the stronghold. Why would I bring a bloody calamity upon others?” “Are you really a resident of this stronghold?” The fortune teller laughed and said, “You can’t fool me. Your ‘aura’ makes you look really out of place in this stronghold. If you even lived here for longer than three days, you wouldn’t look like that.”
Ren Xiaosu wondered why the conversation seemed to be getting more and more mystical. He asked, “Then why don’t you tell me if I’ll be able to achieve what I wish to do?”
“Oh, I can’t divine that.” The fortune teller said, “I cannot predict something so specific. Usually, I can only provide a word of warning to those whose fortunes I’ve read.”
“Then what would you like to say to me?” Ren Xiaosu asked with a frown.
The fortune teller looked at Ren Xiaosu again for a long time before suddenly saying in surprise, “Eh, why’re there so many intersections in your life? I’ve never met anyone like you before…. I can’t divine, no, I won’t read your fortune any further!” Ren Xiaosu was speechless. Had he just wasted his fucking time here for nothing?
He pulled the fortune teller back. Ren Xiaosu was starting to believe him a little. “Let’s disregard everything for the moment. Can you help me divine where the people I want to kill are? If you can’t tell me that, you won’t be leaving today.”
“Oh.” The fortune teller thought for a while before saying, “They’re right here in this stronghold.”
Ren Xiaosu frowned and said, “Be more specific.”
The fortune teller broke free from Ren Xiaosu’s grasp and said with a smile, “They’ll be gathering in the northeast in the coming days, but you’ll only have one chance to strike.” Then the fortune teller turned around to leave. Ren Xiaosu did not stop him this time.
Ren Xiaosu believed 60% of the fortune teller’s words. But fate was still something he didn’t know well, so he still had doubts.
Ren Xiaosu suddenly asked in a loud voice, “Wait a minute, have you ever read fortunes for people living in the South?”.
“I’ve read quite a lot of people’s fortunes. Who are you referring to? I can remember the names of all those I’ve told the fortunes of.”
“Oh, I told him he would meet his benefactor in the future.”
Ren Xiaosu kept quiet and did not say anything else. Now he believed 80% of the fortune teller’s words! However, could there really be such a mystical person in the world? Could this fortune teller also be a supernatural being?
Normally, anything that Ren Xiaosu could not understand would immediately be deemed as superstition. But now that he actually encountered it, he did not know whether he should trust the fortune teller.
Li Qingzheng had told him he had met a fortune teller who said he would meet a benefactor who would bring him into the stronghold. However, Ren Xiaosu thought that fortune teller might not be that reliable. Even though Li Qingzheng had really entered the stronghold, it was not to enjoy life on the inside but to experience a disaster.
More importantly, the fortune teller also did not say there were beings like the Experimentals in the stronghold he would be entering. If he had said so earlier, Li Qingzheng would definitely not have wanted to go in.
Right now, Ren Xiaosu only kept in mind the one thing the fortune teller had said. The people he wanted to kill would be gathering in the coming days, and he only had one chance to strike. He was targeting 13 people, including Zong Cheng. As each of them wielded a lot of power, if he tried to kill them one by one, he would probably get hunted down by the entire stronghold after eliminating the first target. Simultaneously, the other targets would go into hiding.
So if his enemies gathered together, that would be the best opportunity for Ren Xiaosu to get them. But how was he supposed to find out where they would be gathering?
After turning a corner, the fortune teller quickly ran off. “What a close shave! I nearly died, and I didn’t con any money out of him!”
In the east, the Razor Sharp Company was marching through the wilderness. Then Zhang Xiaoman looked disconcerted when they heard the sound of armored vehicles moving. He quickly beckoned the others to hide inside a gully nearby to avoid being discovered by the enemy. “Why is this fucking armored brigade chasing us around relentlessly? I thought you said they could only locate other supernatural beings? So how did they follow us all the way here?” Zhang Xiaoman looked at the deputy commander. “Did you lie to us? Do you think I won’t stab you to death?”
The deputy commander was already in tears. “I’ve already said everything that I know.”
However, it was no time to argue. The armored brigade was right in front of them. However, Zhang Xiaoman and the Razor Sharp Company discovered this armored brigade was not coming for them but heading towards the Central Plains.
