The next morning.

Su Youwei waited outside of Gu Changqing's room.

When the door finally opened, Anil led his two assistants out.

Su Youwei stepped forward and asked, "How was it, Mr. Anil?"

Anil nodded and replied, "Everything went well with your chairman's tattoos, Miss Su. This is my most intense project to date."

Anil continued to say, "Mr. Gu asked me to give you a tattoo as well. What do you like? After I'm done with you, I'll be leaving."

"Huh?" Su Youwei was stunned when she heard that Gu Changqing wanted her to get a tattoo as well.

Before Su Youwei could reply, Gu Changqing said sternly, "You have to get one."

With this, Su Youwei could only say helplessly, "Alright. I… I'll get a tattoo on my arm. I'll get a tattoo of…"

"Get a tattoo of a female Rakshasa," Gu Changqing said, interrupting Su Youwei.

"This…" Su Youwei hesitated for a moment before she said, "Alright then. I'll do as the chairman says."

"Miss Su, please," Anil said, gesturing to Su Youwei.

Subsequently, they entered the room next door.

Gu Changqing stood naked in his room.

The Black Dragon was tattooed on his left arm while the White Tiger was tattooed on his right arm. The Qilin was tattooed on his chest, and his back was tattooed with an Asura. Sun Wukong; the Great Sage of Heaven, and Nezha were tattooed on his left and right buttocks respectively. The Grim Reaper and Rahu were tattooed on his left and right leg respectively. A skull was carved on the back of his left hand, and the King of Hell was tattooed on the back of his right hand. Finally, there was a blood-red spear between his brows.

Little did Gu Changqing know, the more powerful the tattoos were; the more painful it would be when they awakened. He was not a Divine Runemaster in the past so he was unaware of this. He only thought that the process was slightly painful. With his body full of tattoos of powerful figures, it was estimated that the pain he would face was worse than death.

In any case, Gu Changqing was willing to do anything to survive.

The sky was as dark as ink.

At around 9 PM, Gu Changqing sent Anil and the others away.

After Su Youwei put her clothes on, Gu Changqing walked into the room. She was puzzled when she saw his arms that were covered in tattoos. She asked, "Chairman Gu, why did you…"

"It won't be long before you feel grateful to me," Gu Changqing said. Before he left the room, he said, "When you return, make sure the finance department gives Wu Rui the right to use 10 billion yuan first."

Gu Changqing had insisted on Su Youwei getting a tattoo because she had been with him for six to seven years now; he considered her a trusted aide.

"10 billion?" Su Youwei followed Gu Changqing out and asked tentatively, "Why does he need such a huge sum of money?"

Su Youwei knew Gu Changqing did not like others to ask about his matters, but she could not help herself. The sum of money was not small, after all.

Gu Changqing did not like to explain himself. He only said icily, "Don't ask what you shouldn't ask."

"Understood, Chairman Gu."

Su Youwei had been working for Gu Changqing for six to seven years now so she knew what kind of person he was. Although he was cold and ruthless, he always treated his subordinates well.

Time passed very quickly. In just a blink of an eye, it was already May 1st, Labor Day.

[BREAKING NEWS: The richest man in Longjiang City spent a huge sum of money to buy a large abandoned prison in the western suburbs. It's said that he's building a large shelter. According to experts, following the trend of the current construction, it'll take another three to four billion, or perhaps, more, to complete the construction.]

Not long after construction began, many media outlets had been reporting the matter. There were even media outlets that went to film a live broadcast there.

Thousands of workers worked in shifts day and night. Only 28 days had passed, but two-thirds of the construction had already been completed. At this speed, if nothing unexpected happened, it would be completed in another ten days.

Many people only assumed that Gu Changqing was one of those people with too much money with nowhere to spend. No one thought that he was preparing for a disaster.

Gu Changqing naturally did not care about what people thought. He had been working out over the past month. In his previous life, he heard that those with very weak physiques died when their tattoos awakened. As such, he planned to improve his physique as much as he could before the Cataclysm arrived.

Today, Gu Changqing, who had just finished working out, sat on the couch in the living room and stared at the strange mark on his right palm. No matter how hard he tried, he could not get rid of it. He suspected that the reason he was able to return to the path was 


Gu Changqing looked at the message on his phone. It was a notification that he had received 90 billion yuan.

At this moment, Su Youwei called.

"Chairman Gu, did you receive the money?"

Gu Changqing said, nodding in satisfaction, "You've done well. Come back as soon as possible."

Su Youwei hesitated for a moment. In the end, she said, "I… Chairman Gu, I… want to resign."

Su Youwei could only see the corruption in Gu Changqing at this moment. She was a woman with a strong will, and she no longer had the heart to stay by the side of a man who could callously sell the properties left to him by his parents to build a useless shelter. Moreover, the people who bought Hengyu Group had asked her to stay and offered her a high salary.

"Alright. I'll make sure you receive last month's pay," Gu Changqing said expressionlessly before he ended the call. He was clearly not affected by Su Youwei's departure at all. Every person had his or her own ambition. However, now that she had left, it would be impossible for him to allow her to return in the future.

At this moment, a tall and muscular man dressed in a black suit walked into the villa.


Gu Changqing took a sip from the teacup on the coffee table before he looked up and asked, "How did it go?"

"Of course, it went well! Don't you trust me?" Zhang Hu asked with a chuckle. He took a seat and poured himself a cup of tea before he said, "All of our brothers have been tattooed with demons as you ordered. Don't worry, Boss. They're all orphans so they're absolutely loyal to you."

After a moment, Zhang Hu asked in a low voice, "Boss, is the world coming to an end?"

It was not surprising that Zhang Hu thought so. Otherwise, why would Gu Changqing suddenly build a large shelter in the remote western suburbs?

"Not bad. You managed to guess it."

Gu Changqing did not hide anything from Zhang Hu. After all, Zhang Hu was like a brother to him, and they had gone through a life-or-death situation in the past. At that time, Zhang Hu had blocked a knife for him and almost died as a result.

Zhang Hu was slightly stunned. However, he did not doubt Gu Changqing's words. When he regained his senses, he said, "F*ck! No wonder you made such a big move, Boss! However, what does it have to do with getting tattoos?"

Gu Changqing smiled mysteriously and said, "You'll know when the time comes!"

Zhang Hu laughed. "I can't wait!"

Gu Changqing took a cigarette out of the box and threw it to Zhang Hu. Then, he lit one for himself before he said, "Zhang Hu, to prevent any accidents, bring a few men to supervise the construction. It's best if it can be completed within these ten days. We'll need a few days after that to transport all kinds of things there."

Zhang Hu took a puff from his cigarette and nodded. He rose to his feet and said, "Boss, I'll head over there now!"

After Zhang Hu left, Gu Changqing dialed a string of numbers.

"Little Gu, the commotion you caused over the past month isn't small at all!" a voice that sounded old said as soon as the call connected.

The matter of Gu Changqing spending such a huge sum of money to build a large shelter caused a huge commotion in the entire country, after all.

"Elder He, stop making fun of me," Gu Changqing said politely. Then, he said bluntly, "I want to gold 160 billion worth of golden dragon coins. Can you help me, Elder He?"

"Hmm? Why do you need so much gold?" the other person asked skeptically.

"Can you not ask, Elder He?" Gu Changqing said before he directly transferred the money to the other party. He knew that after the Cataclysm, there would be a unified currency. The money he had now would depreciate greatly in value at that time/

"Alright, I'll help you."

Perhaps the other party had seen the money in his account, he no longer asked any questions and agreed to help Gu Changqing immediately.

"Thank you, Elder He. Do you think it can be settled within the week?"

"Sure. When the time comes, I'll hand over the gold."

"Alright. I'll treat you to a meal when you're free," Gu Changqing said perfunctorily before ending the call.
