Chapter 91 – Agent of Time

Just as Lin Qiye and the others were pinching their noses to eat raw meat, a fragrance suddenly appeared in the cafeteria, and everyone’s spirits were lifted as they all turned to look.

They saw Sun Lao dragging a large tray with stacks of dishes on it, quickly walking up to the members of the Mask Team.

“Braised pork, chicken stew with mushrooms, ants climbing a tree, steamed bass… Wow! Is this for real?!” Xuanxuan saw the full plate of delicacies and swallowed, his eyes shining.

“Hehe, you guys rarely come back, so of course I have to make something good for you.” Sun Lao, with calloused hands, wiped his apron and grinned.

“Thank you, Sun Lao.”

“Thank you, Sun Lao!”

The other members all thanked him, then picked up their chopsticks and enjoyed the meal with laughter.


In the quiet hall, the sound of swallowing saliva kept coming, and even the new recruits who had just managed to eat the plain steamed buns couldn’t eat anymore when they smelled the food.

More than two hundred hungry eyes stared at the Mask Team’s big round table, as if they were about to rush up and grab the food at any moment.

Wang Mian glanced at them, then silently placed his Yiyuan on the table…

And then continued to eat.

“I object! Why can they eat so well, while we can only gnaw on steamed buns and eat raw meat!” a new recruit couldn’t help but complain.

“Hmph.” Sun Lao’s face fell, and he replied unkindly, “When you little brats leave this camp and come back in the future, I’ll make a big meal for you too!”

Just then, Wang Mian seemed to remember something and beckoned to Lin Qiye.

“Qiye, come and eat with us.”


All the new recruits suddenly turned their heads and stared at Lin Qiye, who was still gnawing on raw meat.

Lin Qiye raised his eyebrows, hesitated for a moment, then walked to the Mask Team’s round table with his bowl and sat down.

“Come on, have some chicken.” Wang Mian took a clean bowl and started to serve Lin Qiye.

“Xuanxuan, bring some fish over for Qiye.”


“And some meat soup, it’s quite fresh.”

“I’ll get him a pair of chopsticks.”

“What about rice? Do we have enough rice? If not, I have some here.” Qiangwei stood up to serve Lin Qiye rice.

The Mask Team’s attitude towards Lin Qiye was very polite, so polite that Lin Qiye felt a little embarrassed and waved his hand repeatedly:

“No need, you guys eat, I’m just here to ask some questions, I’ll eat my own food.”

Yuegui was taken aback, “You don’t want to eat good food and still eat raw meat?”


“Hey… look at your comrades behind you, their eyes are all green, why not have some?”

“I’m a new recruit, I eat what new recruits should eat.” Lin Qiye decisively shook his head.

Seeing that Lin Qiye said so, the members of the Mask Team had no choice but to sit down, and Wang Mian looked at Lin Qiye approvingly, saying:

“You want to ask about the Agent?”


“Ask, as long as I know, I’ll tell you.”

Lin Qiye pondered for a moment, “What is the relationship between the Agent and the gods?”

“Your question is quite profound…” Wang Mian pondered for a long time before slowly speaking, “Essentially, the relationship between the Agent and the gods is just two words, ‘contract’.”


“Due to certain reasons, gods generally do not appear directly in human society. If they want to do something, they must find a suitable person to help them. At this point, a mysterious contract is formed between the person and the god.

The essence of the contract is actually an exchange. The god bestows a part of their divine power upon the Agent, and in exchange, the Agent must help the god to accomplish certain things.

Of course, not everyone can become an Agent. Only when the god itself recognizes you, do you have the qualification to become an Agent and fulfill this contract.”

“Contract…” Lin Qiye muttered these two words, his brows filled with doubt.

If it was a contract, there was no reason for him to not know anything. The Seraph had bestowed a part of his divine power upon him, but had not mentioned at all what he should do…

Compared to a contract, Lin Qiye felt that this was more like a gift.

“What do you have to do for the God of Time?” Lin Qiye looked at Wang Mian, then realized that the question he asked was a bit rude, and added, “If you can’t say, then forget I asked.”

“There’s nothing I can’t say.” Wang Mian shook his head, “About eight or nine years ago, when I was still an ordinary person, I was walking dazedly on the main road, and there was a drunk driver’s truck rushing towards me.

I didn’t have time to react, and at the moment when I was about to be hit and sent flying, the surrounding time suddenly paused.

Later, the God of Time came from the void and made a contract with me, bestowing his Divine Ruin upon me, and in exchange, I must enter Gaotianyuan in the future and retrieve something for him.”

“Gaotianyuan?” Lin Qiye was stunned, “The land of the gods in Japanese mythology?”

“That’s right.”

“Does it really exist?”

“The God of Time said it exists, so it must exist, but… I still haven’t found it.” Wang Mian sighed helplessly.

Lin Qiye nodded, “Is it your choice to join the Night Watchman?”

“Yes, actually, before I joined the Night Watchman, the Agent of the Evil God of the Ancient God Church had approached me and asked me to join them.” Wang Mian said calmly, “But I refused.”

Lin Qiye pondered for a moment, “Because the goal given to you by the God of Time has nothing to do with which side you join, so they thought they could recruit you?”

“That’s right, and even some people in the Ancient God Church have found clues about Gaotianyuan, but I really don’t want to be associated with them, so I refused in the end.””Then they just gave up?”

“It’s not that simple. The followers of the Ancient God Church are a bunch of lunatics. If they can’t recruit you, they’ll try every means to kill you.

When I first joined the Night Watchman, I was ambushed by them three or four times. If it weren’t for my luck, I probably wouldn’t be alive today.” Wang Mian shrugged his shoulders, “But now, they don’t dare to come after me anymore.”


“Because they’re not sure they can beat me, and…” Wang Mian’s gaze fell on the other team members at the table, a smile forming at the corner of his mouth, “I have a group of reliable teammates. Whether it’s a one-on-one fight or a brawl, they wouldn’t dare touch me.”

“Cough cough cough, Captain… it’s best not to get sentimental while eating, it can be nauseating…” The expression on Whirlpool’s face was a bit strange.

“But what I’m saying is the truth.”

“Even so, you could wait until we’re alone to say it, saying it now… how awkward!” Rose glared at Wang Mian, puffing up in anger.

“Um… I’ll be more careful next time.”

Lin Qiye sat there in a daze, watching the seven people in front of him jesting and bickering. After a long while, a faint smile appeared on his lips…
