After this batch of students entered and suppressed the extremely vicious criminals within, Exile Zone 66 was very likely to be abandoned.
It was also because of this that these criminals might struggle even harder and become even more vicious in the light of their impending demise.
No wonder Yu Xinyuan and the other two wanted to form a team with them. Such a place was fraught with danger and it would be very difficult for students to survive if they were to traverse it alone.
"I recall that to suppress and deter the criminals in these exile zones, the place was equipped with heavy firepower. When we get there, what if those criminals rush over with their mechas? Wouldn’t we be marching to our deaths?" Gao Hongzhi said
Thinking about those mechas that were hailed as guardians of humanity rushing toward him, Gao Hongzhi could not help but suck in a breath of cold air. If they were to meet one, with his strength, he would not be able to block even a single move.
"That won’t happen. In case things like this happen, the heavy firepower in the area was outfitted with a backdoor. The moment such an event happens, it’ll automatically destroy the control chip and the energy output device. In short, even if they get their hands on the laser gun, it’ll be no different from a fire stick. Even if the mecha falls into their hands, they’ll not be able to move it," Tang Siyu said as if she knew everything.
"That’s good to hear." Gao Hongzhi looked like he was still in shock. After thinking about it, he realized that Federation University would not have sent them to their deaths in vain if they wanted to train them.
Suddenly, a slightly shrill voice called out.
"Who’s Chu Yunfan?"
A young man strode into the lounge area of Calm Ocean City.

Dozens of Calm Ocean City examinees looked over. It was a young man with a proud look on his face. He was tall and wore a suit of armor.
"A student of Donghua No. 1 High!"
Everyone was stirred. It was obvious that this person was a student of Donghua No. 1 High. Compared to the others, he was clearly much stronger than everyone else. Even though the most elite geniuses of the millions of citizens in Donghua City were gathered here, this student was obviously far stronger. Even the best in Calm Ocean City No. 1 High was clearly inferior to him.
"I am," Chu Yunfan said as he stood up.
"Come with me. I have something to tell you," the student said.
Chu Yunfan frowned. This student looked a little arrogant, but he did not seem hostile. Chu Yunfan had sharp senses. If the student had come with ill intentions, he would not have been able to hide it from Chu Yunfan.
Therefore, Chu Yunfan did not refuse. He wanted to know what this student from Donghua No. 1 High was up to. The only person he knew from Donghua No. 1 High was his cousin, Chu Yuntian, who had crushed him for more than ten years.
Other than that, he did not know anyone else.
Could it be that this student had come after hearing of Chu Yunfan’s reputation as the so-called number one high schooler of Calm Ocean City?
It was not impossible. Although the students of Donghua No. 1 High were arrogant and regarded foreign students as country bumpkins, they were still students of the top high school in all the satellite cities. This made it possible for them to attract so much attention.
The two of them came to a quiet place. The student then said, "Let me introduce myself. My name is Pan Xiuwen."
After the student said that, he waited for Chu Yunfan to reveal a look of sudden realization and admiration. However, Chu Yunfan continued to look indifferent, as if he did not recognize his name.
Pan Xiuwen secretly cursed at the fact that Chu Yunfan was a country bumpkin from the countryside. Chu Yunfan had never even heard of his name. If it was in the downtown area of Donghua City, who would not know his name?
"Why have you come looking for me?" Chu Yunfan asked as he frowned slightly.
"You’re Chu Yuntian’s cousin, right?" Pan Xiuwen said after a pause.
"That’s right." Chu Yunfan’s brows deepened. Could it be because of Chu Yuntian?
"Other than Chu Yuntian, I didn’t expect someone like you to come from your family." Pan Xiuwen clicked his tongue in wonder.
"If you have something to say, just say it," Chu Yunfan snapped.
Pan Xiuwen clapped his hands and said, "Good. Straightforward, I like it. I’m here to negotiate with you on behalf of another person—Donghua No. 1 High’s Jiang Lei, Brother Lei."
"A member of the Jiang family? You’re here on behalf of the Jiangs?" Chu Yunfan immediately became vigilant.
When Pan Xiuwen saw this, he hurriedly said, "You don’t have to be so vigilant. Brother Lei and Jiang Yusheng belong to completely different branches. He has no interest in the grudge between you and Jiang Yusheng. On the contrary, he’s actually very happy that you’ve defeated Jiang Yusheng."
Chu Yunfan immediately understood that there would be more than one or two direct descendants of a behemoth like the Jiang family. Unless they could become almost next-to-invincible like Jiang Lingxiao, without any trouble at all, they would become the top scorer in the college entrance exams. If that was not the case, the competition between those individuals would be very intense.
And Jiang Lei was obviously in a competitive relationship with Jiang Yusheng. That was why he did not care for the grudges between Chu Yunfan and Jiang Yusheng. Instead, he felt that this was a good thing.
"I heard that Jiang Yusheng’s father, Jiang Jianye, has placed a reward of 50 million on the black market for the head of your entire family because of Jiang Yusheng’s death," Pan Xiuwen said. When he said that, even he could not help but become excited. For a student like him, 50 million was undoubtedly a huge sum of money.
"What do you want to say? Just spit it out. Stop beating around the bush," Chu Yunfan said.
"Then I’ll just say it plainly. Brother Lei said that as long as you do him one favor, he’ll get Jiang Jianye to withdraw the bounty on you," Pan Xiuwen said.
"Can he do such a thing?" Chu Yunfan said as he raised his eyebrows. Although he did not know much about the Jiangs, he understood that Jiang Jianye was a core member, and Jiang Lei should only be an outstanding junior. The difference between them was too great.
Pan Xiuwen saw that he could not intimidate Chu Yunfan, so he said, "Although Brother Lei can’t do it, his father can. After all, the bounty placed on the lives of a commoner family on the black market isn’t covered up. It’s creating a negative impact, and it’s a disgrace to the Jiangs. If Brother Lei’s father brings it up at the family meeting, Jiang Jianye will have to remove the bounty even if he’s unwilling.
"After all, you weren’t the one who killed Jiang Yusheng. You just got caught in the crossfire," Pan Xiuwen said slowly.
"Oh? What does your Brother Lei want me to do?" Chu Yunfan asked.
"Brother Lei wants to join forces with you to take down Chu Yuntian."
Pan Xiuwen finally revealed the plan.
