I Really Am Not The Lord of Demon - Chapter 178
Chapter 178 – The Tragedy Caused By A Dream
It was already almost ten o’clock when Ling Pingan woke up.
“How did I sleep until now?” He found it hard to understand.
Sitting up, he picked up his phone and thought about it on the sofa. He seemed to have had a lot of dreams after getting drunk last night!
But most of them had been forgotten.
He only vaguely remembered that he seemed to have heard the sounds of astronomical objects.
Other than that, he couldn’t remember anything else.
“Why am I so tired…” he scratched his head. “It seems that I really can’t drink anymore…”
When he was drunk, it was easy for such a situation to happen, which would seriously affect the quality of his sleep!
He stood up and wrapped all the mushrooms that he had forgotten to put in the refrigerator with plastic wrap before putting them into the refrigerator.
Then, he went to the bathroom to take a shower and changed into a new set of clothes.
Standing in front of the mirror, Ling Pingan looked at himself.
He seemed to have dark circles under his eyes and looked a little haggard.
A wisp of beard grew around his lips.
The young bookstore owner was scared out of his wits.
“No! No!” He said, “I have to take care of my health!”
He was only twenty-four years old, and he didn’t want to have a messy beard like a middle-aged man.
Therefore, he picked up the razor and shaved off all of his beards.
Looking at the mirror again, he felt much more comfortable.
“I’m still the same young man from before…” Ling Pingan walked down the stairs humming a song that he had heard from somewhere. “Nothing had changed in me…”
Halfway down, he stopped.
“This tune is not bad!” He said, “Which song is that?”
However, no matter how hard he racked his brains, he could not figure out which song it was!
He did not know where he had heard it before.
In fact, he knew only this one sentence.
It was as if the lyrics and tune had suddenly appeared in his mind.
“Maybe I heard it in the cybercafé or supermarket when I was in school?” He thought, so he did not take it seriously.
Because everyone had experienced similar things.
Suddenly seeing a building or suddenly seeing something on the TV and felt that it was familiar. Having the feeling that he had been here before, but he forgot about it.
He walked to the door of the shop and pulled the shutter up.
The sun was shining brightly outside, and the air was cool!
Most importantly, the Jiangcheng city that day was cooler than the day before!
Ling Pingan didn’t feel the heat even he was standing under the sun.
“The weather in Jiangcheng city has become so suitable?” Ling Pingan was shocked!
“Yes!” Aunt Cai, who was next door, also said, “Today’s weather is the coolest summer in Jiangcheng City in the past twenty years!”
Ling Pingan returned to the shop with steamed dumplings and tofu pudding in his hands and sat at the counter.
When he turned on the TV, he saw the host sitting on the TV with a serious look on his face.
The background of the studio was replaced with a picture of the global weather.
“In the past few hours, the global climate has changed dramatically!” The host introduced seriously. “In the Arctic, the average temperature dropped by more than ten degrees in the past five hours!”
“The temperature near the Arctic suddenly dropped by more than twenty degrees!”
“Experts estimate that tonight, the temperature at the Arctic may drop to an all-time low in summer!”
“At the same time, large-scale snowfall began to appear!”
The television screen showed the scene of heavy snowfall in the Arctic.
Ling Pingan even forgot to eat the steamed dumplings in his mouth.
Snow… in the Arctic… in summer?
That was f*cking crazy!
Because his common sense told him that in summer, the Arctic was undergoing a perpetual sun.
The sun would not set and would always shine its energy to the Arctic.
That was also why the glaciers in the Arctic melted in large numbers in summer!
Cooling weather and snowstorm…
Ling Pingan only had two words in his mind: Ecological disaster!
The reason was simple. In summer, the Arctic was a breeding and hunting ground for countless birds and marine creatures!
If the cooling and snowstorm came, a large number of chicks would probably freeze to death or starve to death.
Thinking of this, Ling Pingan sighed, “Humans! It’s really…”
In his opinion, this was a series of ecological disasters caused by human industrial activities.
On the television, the host continued to introduce, “At the same time, the temperature of the Kunlun state’s Kunlun Desert has risen to an all-time high!”
“The highest temperature has already exceeded 68 degrees!”
“Scientists predict that the average temperature of the Kunlun desert today may reach 43 to 45 degrees…”
“Many desert creatures unique to the Kunlun Desert are facing a catastrophe!”
“… “he continued to introduce climate change in other parts of the world.
Of course, it was not all bad news.
After two months of rainy weather, Xinping County of the Beizhou had finally cleared up.
The tornado disaster that had been raging in Nanzhou for several days had stopped.
The South Kunlun Gonghe Country, which had been dry for three months, finally welcomed its first heavy rain since summer.
In the metropolitan territory of the Federal Empire, it could only be described as having good weather and everything going according to plan.
It was raining where it was supposed to rain.
The sun was rising where it was supposed to rise.
The host’s expression did not change at all.
He continued to solemnly say to the audience in front of the television, “The global climate change this time…”
“It’s a chain reaction caused by mankind’s increasing carbon dioxide emissions!”
“We shouldn’t only see the benefits of this round of climate change. We should also see the deep-seated natural disasters hidden in this round of abnormal climate change
“We should pay attention to the imperial capital Climate Protocol signed ten years ago!”
“Countries around the world should work together to reduce carbon emissions!”
“The Arctic and the Kunlun Desert’s today might be the tomorrow for us humans!”
On the screen, the land in the Arctic was covered in snow. On the cliffs, countless birds were shivering and dying one by one in the snowstorm.
Countless baby birds died in their nests in the snow.
Then, the high-temperature and scorching Kunlun desert appeared.
Under the high temperature, the sand was roasted until it was red.
The corpses of the desert lizard and desert rat could be seen through the camera lens!
Ling Pingan couldn’t bear to watch any longer, so he turned off the television.
“Sigh…” he ate the steamed dumplings and sighed.
For the sake of humanity and the environment, Ling Pingan decided not to turn on the television or the fan today.
That was the limit of what he could do.
… … ..
In the Blackguard headquarters in the Capital.
Li Shouyi walked into the office building that was on full alert.
People were walking in and out in a hurry with solemn expressions.
All the facilities had already lit up red lights.
That meant that the situation was already very critical, and all the Blackguard had entered a state of emergency.
“The temperature in the Arctic is still dropping!” Zhang Hui went up to Li Shouyi and reported the situation. “Today, the temperature in the Arctic might drop by ten degrees!”
“The average temperature will drop by ten degrees in a day!”
“This isn’t just an ecological disaster!”
Li Shouyi nodded.
In an ordinary region, the average temperature would drop by two to three degrees in a day, which was an incredible thing.
In a place like the Arctic, when it dropped by ten degrees a day!
Even a fool would know that there was a problem!
“Besides, in many desert areas, including the Kunlun desert, the temperature continues to soar!” Zhang Hui said worriedly. “I suspect that this is the work of an ancient god who has quietly awakened!”
Li Shouyi nodded solemnly. “It’s possible!”
As the recovery of psionic energy intensified, the ancient gods returned more and more frequently.
Most of them could only awaken a little bit of their consciousness now.
There were always some special existences who could return early!
For example, wasn’t there one in Jiangcheng City?
Fortunately, the one in Jiangcheng City had good intentions toward the human race and had ties with the human race.
But what about the others?
If an ancient god or even an evil god who had a bad intention towards the humans had returned!
For example, those tyrannical fellows from the Land of Qin!
They loved to flood the humans and make them feel loved…
They loved to destroy the world…
They loved to hold Tridents and set off tsunamis just so that the humans could give them a beautiful woman…
And there were the ones who wanted to eat infants…
If they woke up and found that the current world was not as good as they wanted it to be…
They were capable of doing anything!
The only good news was that even if they returned, the current federal empire had a way to balance them!
At worst, they could ask the one in Jiangcheng City to help.
If that happened, humans would become a species that trembled under the balance of terror.
It was precise because of this that Li Shouyi had been in seclusion ever since he returned from Jiangcheng City.
He was trying his best to digest the gains from the previous meal.
If not for the sudden change in the Arctic climate this time, he had no choice but to come out of seclusion. Otherwise, he would have continued his seclusion until he completely digested it!
Following Zhang Hui, he walked into the Blackguard’s central control center that was already on full alert.
Satellites were being urgently dispatched to various important regions.
Data was being collected.
In the sky above the Arctic, the federal empire even sent out strategic bombers with psionic energy collectors to begin collecting psionic substances in the atmosphere.
“When will the results be out?” Li Shouyi asked.
“About half an hour or so!” A staff member replied after saluting.
“Okay!” Li Shouyi sat down.
Zhang Hui sat next to him.
“The matter of Nanyang has been resolved…” Zhang Hui reported, “From yesterday to today, the entire Nanyang has emerged from the tide-defying phenomenon…”
“Okay!” Li Shouyi nodded. “It seems that Captain Li is a Koi!”
He smiled and said, “We may be able to pay our respects more often in the future!”
Zhang Hui nodded in understanding.
With an ace in hand, he naturally had to use it.
However, it had to be skillful.
Both of them sat and communicated.
About twenty minutes later, the first report came out.
The psionic energy reaction in the Arctic was normal.
There was no man-made interference.
Holding the report, Li Shouyi frowned.
Then, a new report came out. The weather satellite showed that starting tomorrow, the temperature in the Arctic would gradually rise.
Then, reports from other places were released one after another.
All the data showed that there were no anomalies.
Moreover, the weather satellites and the local weather forecasts showed a common trend. In the next three days, the weather in the abnormal areas would return to normal levels.
Was the god playing a joke on mankind?
Li Shouyi took these reports, and his expression became even more serious.
“Be on guard at all times!” He said. “Don’t lose guard!”
“It seems that…” he looked at Zhang Hui. “A storm is coming!”
Zhang Hui nodded.
Li Shouyi and Zhang Hui both knew that this was probably just a test by the ancient God, hiding somewhere and controlling everything.
Because, on the surface, all the evidence seemed to be fine.
But in fact, it just revealed the problem!
The seemingly no man-made traces is the most obvious man-made traces of the place!
