“Do you know what you are shouting?” The young and elegant prince standing on the balcony asked suddenly and coldly of the crowd supporting him below. His undulating voice spread across the square through the microphone, like a pot of cold water poured on a fire.
The enthusiasm of the people’s cry suddenly weakened, not the previous high.
Standing in the corridor, Ji Shanhong frowned. Immediately sensing that something was wrong, he immediately tried to reach out to pull open the door to the terrace, but found that the door was actually locked from the outside.
The soldiers standing behind Xie Quan, who belonged to the Ninth Legion, were firmly guarding the door, which was pulled by Ji Shanhong with a bang, but they seemed to have turned a deaf ear to it, not even looking at it, let alone unlocking the chain. Because they were secretly placed in this position, in order to fulfill their mission—to protect Caesar from being disturbed by anyone!
The door was locked so tightly that Ji Shanhong quickly realized that Xie Quan was planning something, but the door could not be forced open at this moment, which would only arouse the suspicion of the people. He immediately gave orders to his men, “Cut the national broadcast signal! Then have someone stop the broadcasting equipment immediately!”
Ji Shanhong stared at the door, his eyes turning gloomy and dangerous. Although he was not sure what Xie Quan’s purpose was, he could not allow a single risk. He must cut off Xie Quan’s communication channels with the masses!
And at this moment outside, after Xie Quan’s words, the crowd’s voices faded like a tide, gradually, the voices slowly silenced, and then suddenly someone shouted, like a fast arrow breaking through the air.
“Your Highness! We know!!! We believe that you can bring us a new future!”
With this cry, the voices of the people began to shout again in a variety of ways.
However, Xie Quan laughed softly, and his clear eyes looked at the people below without showing any sadness or joy, but that’s what made him look a bit sarcastic. He said in that calm, unmoving voice, “No, you don’t know. You don’t even know what kind of person I am, so what makes you believe that I will bring you a new future?”
“What?” The people were dumbfounded, not expecting that the person they supported would say such things to them.
The people in the auditorium at this moment also looked at the big screen and were puzzled.
Saroyan frowned. “What is he up to again?”
Lilith, on the other hand, was carrying a breath of air in her heart, and her eyes were watching Xie Quan on the big screen tightly without blinking.
In the corridor, Ji Shanhong listened to Xie Quan’s words, his face had completely sunk at the moment, and his voice had a taut anger potential under the calm. “Why hasn’t it been cut off?”
The deputy next to him naturally knew that this meant the marshal’s mood was already very bad, a drop of sweat rolled down his forehead and he went to make contact again, however this time, he immediately got the result. He took his own communicator and gulped because he was nervous, but still reported very concisely and clearly, “Report: Marshal, the live line is now not a royal special line, but a private line that has been disguised, so we can’t cut it off!”
Ji Shanhong’s eyebrows twitched. “Private line? Where does a private line get the authority to connect to the nation’s screen signal?”
The deputy also replied with an unbelievable tone, “They didn’t connect, but directly hacked.”
The entire empire had a population of over a billion people, millions of screens, and hundreds of channels in a territory of several hundred million square kilometers, and all of them were hacked by one system!
How powerful a system must be to do this? How powerful a system would it be?
The police officers in the information management department couldn’t believe what they found out, it was unheard of, unseen, and no one dared to believe it.
And at this moment, in the terminal on Xie Quan’s wrist, a virtual intelligent image holding the virtual pipeline of data in its hands, which connected the tentacles extending to the whole empire, if there is an entity, at this moment it was on top of a giant net, and this net was tightly wrapped around the empire.
The information security system people were constantly replacing the new key, trying to prevent intrusion, however, each time the key was updated, less than three seconds later, it was immediately and quickly cracked again.
Xiao Bai shouted in a domineering manner, “Little Master, I am powerful! Kill, kill, kill!”
After listening to the report, Ji Shanhong knew that this was Xie Quan’s preparation, but he didn’t want to be too complacent because of Xie Quan’s previous good behavior, and he hadn’t expected Xie Quan to not resist, but to resist so much… He asked again, “What about the broadcast system? Can’t cut it off either?”
“…” The deputy said hesitantly, “It was cut.”
It’s true that the sound system in the auditorium, as well as on the terrace and the square, was cut off. But it didn’t affect it at all.
The standing microphone in front of Xie Quan was indeed silent, and he had even gradually left the microphone and walked to the railing to look closer at the people. Then, in a casual tone of casual conversation, he said plainly, “I know what you are here for.”
The minister next to him was shocked to find that even though Xie Quan was not using a microphone, his voice still resounded clearly and unmistakably over the square.
“I am also well aware of what responsibilities I need to assume as you have asked me to stand here.” On Xie Quan’s collar, a small radio was lighting up green.
Those near the stereo realized at the moment that Xie Quan’s voice did not seem to be coming from next to the stereo, but from somewhere else, from overhead, from the side, from much closer—
They looked carefully and saw silver beetles flying in the air, one by one, at some point.
And Xie Quan’s voice came out clearly from those silver beetles.
Tang Wenshao, who was in the crowd, immediately recognized that this was a miniature beetle device designed by Xie Quan! Xie Quan did not want to use this device to connect with the radio and then replace the sound.
At this moment, however, Xie Quan continued, taking a cold look at the people and the banners they were holding up, and he said, “But unfortunately, you’ve chosen the wrong person. You chose me because you thought I could bring you a bright future, but I don’t have the ability or the will to take on that responsibility. Don’t you guys think you’re ridiculous? You are beta, I am an omega, why would you think that an omega can take on the hopes of a beta?” With a hint of curiosity and doubt in his indifference, he asked, “Who are you to make others work for your own happiness?”
As he asked question after question, the crowd in front of him had been nearly silent.
They looked with disappointed and hurt eyes at the man who spoke from on high, and in the midst of the silence, the leader, Ham, cried out with grief, “Your Highness! Have you forgotten the unfinished ambition of your father, Joan? He has not yet died in peace!”
“How can you say that, when His Highness Joan has taken pity on us and risked his future and his life to seek a chance of life for our beta! How can you do justice to the dead Joan? How can you live up to his feelings that he would sacrifice himself to protect your safety?”
These words were heartfelt, and the old man’s voice was even more impassioned, bringing tears to the eyes, but Xie Quan frowned. He asked, “Were you in the car? How do you know that I was protected by him?”
“It’s…” Ham was speechless, he could only say, “Pity the world, it must be so…”
Xie Quan said, “The accident happened before my father and I and the guards in the car had time to react, it was not as moving as you describe, and there is no such thing as who sacrificed who and who saved who. Of course, I’m not complaining, I’m just telling the truth. I hope you also look at my father objectively, he’s not a god, he’s just an ordinary man.” He continued, “He is no different from the unpardonable Saroyan, Amelia, and now Emperor Hea, as you call him.”
After a short silence, the crowd below began to get angry:
“You unfilial son! How dare you smear your own father!”
“You’re bullying the dead to not speak!”
“You don’t deserve to be a prince!”
The crowd’s invective was incessant, but Xie Quan smiled, his eyebrows were stretched out and he looked extremely warm and friendly, and the distant coldness seemed to melt into a trickle of water in an instant. He said as if he had expected it, “Look, I told you, you don’t know what you’re talking about. Last minute you thought I could be your hope, and now you think I’m not worthy to be called a prince.”
He sank his voice, “Again, how well do you know Joan? And how well do you know the beta re-differentiation research that you call hope?” He asked, “What university did Joan graduate from, what did he study, what are his favorite books? Do you know how long the research history of the beta re-differentiation study is, and what the specific experimental measures are? Are the experimental data publicly available?”
That layer of paper was suddenly punctured, and most of the people suddenly became confused. They suddenly didn’t know how to answer, and when they thought about it, they couldn’t seem to answer any of these questions asked by Xie Quan. And after looking at each other, they realized that they really didn’t know much.
At this moment, the people in front of the screen also had the same reaction.
Among them were those who not long ago were swimming in righteous indignation. There were the betas who were determined to support the alpha and omegas for the benefit of the empire. But at this moment, they realized that what they believed in was only an illusion.
An illusion without a physical body.
In the midst of such silence, Xie Quan dropped the most explosive bombshell in the flattest of tones, “The beta re-differentiation study is a hoax from beginning to end. There is no way that the beta can be re-differentiated, nor can the glands in their bodies be activated again. As for why, do you think that after a person gets up from crawling to walk upright, they will go back to their previous crawling state?”
At this moment, Emperor Hea, who was sitting on the throne to see what kind of farce Xie Quan would put on, stood up sharply, he lowered his eyebrows and hastily shouted, “Break open the door! Stop him!”
Good grief, XQ has nerves of steel. He’s brave to be speaking these words of truth with all of those royals, etc. ready to bring him down. Violently.
Wow!!! So exciting!! This was definitely an eye opener for them! That’s right XQ is a treat! They underestimated him! Thank you for the translation and editing! ❤️
This is a reflection of public behavior, they demand for thing that they didn’t even know if that was actually existing. The politicals set up plays for their their own benefits.
👍 up for the author and thank you for the team.
Yaaassss XQ! Wow!
Great stuff! XQ is very brave and resolute.
Emperor Hea doesn’t seem so confident and arrogant now.
Thanks for translating and editing.

The royal family wants alpha&omegas to rule, The organization wants betas to rule, and mc just wants peace … Which coulf lead to a more equal government in the future. Destroy the system, be phenomenal/out-of-the-box
