    Chapter 875: A New Start

    Translator: WQL  Editor: Aleem

    On January 23rd, the airport outside Embracing Tiger City...

    After coming to Embracing Tiger City once again, Zhang Tie felt relaxed!

    Zhang Tie had not set free any living beings himself for a long time. Previously, he set free sand-scale fish in Hidden Dragon Island every day. Later on, he had less chance to do that. Gradually, he invited others to do that for him by paying them. He just ate fruits.

    After picking the special cultivation method once again, Zhang Tie felt pleasant in an inexplicable way.

    It was hard to describe this pleasure. It originated from the depth of his heart and flew across his body like a sweet spring flowing out of the wilderness. After that, Zhang Tie was immersed in a pure, pleasant state. In such a realm, Zhang Tie felt that he might always set living beings free himself from then on, even just for this pleasure.

    Actually, the higher level one was, especially after one promoted to a knight, it would be harder for one to sense this pleasure, which was really a special, spiritual enjoyment.

    Zhang Tie knew that Zhang Taixuan would appoint Zhang Yuanshan as the new dean of the Provincial Court of Youzhou Province today. 'This might be out of the expectation of many people; however, what was more unimaginable was that I would become a bounty hunter in Taixia Country on the same day.'

    Zhang Tie didn't need to register as a bounty hunter himself. The Building of Brightness in Taixia Country was a semi-governmental organization being affiliated to the local judicial agencies. He only needed to prepare his materials and submit them to the Building of Brightness in Youzhou City. 'It's none of my business as for how others would interpret it and frame the Gobbling Party with it.'

    The Gobbling Party deserved it...

    'After this event, the bullsh*t imperial official in the Censorate of Xuanyuan Hill might not walk away from the shadow caused by this event for the rest of his life. He's doomed to be regarded as a villain by the public.'

    That was Taixia Country!

    Gentlemen seek harmony while possessing their unique opinions; villains only seek consistency with others while possessing no unique opinions. After coming to Taixia Country for almost 4 months, Zhang Tie found that he gradually fell in love with this place.

    The airport in Embracing Tiger City was pretty boisterous and vigorous. Airships in different shapes and colorful coatings were coming and going in the sky above the airport, large or small. Zhang Tie felt that this common airport was even more boisterous than the airshow held in Waii Sub-continent.

    The fury-level airships produced by Huaiyuan Palace ranked top in Waii Sub-continent; however, they lost their halos in Taixia Country.

    Taixia Country really had a powerful manufacturing industry. Take the prefectures in Youzhou Province as an instance, the airships produced in Spiritualmaple Prefecture and Chaoyang Prefecture were competitive to that of Huaiyuan Palace while better airships manufacturing clans and enterprises existed in other provinces such as Yanzhou Province, Huizhou Province, Tongzhou Province and Chaozhou Province. The airships produced by the imperial airship manufacturing plants that were affiliated to the imperial court of Taixia Country ranked top in kind, quantity and quality.

    Facing such a great stress and competition, the airship manufacturing enterprises of Huaiyuan Palace had to reduce production scale; meanwhile, they started to employ talents from everywhere and started the project approval and technical storage of the second generation of fury-level airships.

    Huaiyuan Palace would make a regular report to Clan elders about such situations; therefore, Zhang Tie knew these "trifles" pretty well.

    Zhang Tie was the first one to walk out of the airship, followed by Feng Cangwu and Zhu Dabiao.

    After exiting the hatch door of the airship, Zhang Tie looked up at the airships in the sky. By putting one hand over his forehead, he narrowed his eyes and sighed with emotions, "The airships here are much more varified than those in Waii Sub-continent; hmm, additionally, they seem to move faster. There're airships that fully combines the modules with the air sacs..."

    Zhang Tie had been in Embracing Tiger City twice. Firstly, he passed by it; secondly, he came here to attend the clan elders' conference. As he left here so hurriedly the previous two times, he didn't even have time to look around it. Basically, he only had some aerial photographs about this city in his impression. Therefore, it was impossible for him to have a deeper understanding of this city. After adjusting his mood and time, when he came to Embracing Tiger City once again, Zhang Tie immediately felt the difference between this city and those in Waii Sub-continent. Such a tiny difference manifested the power and uniqueness of Taixia Country.

    When Zhang Tie was talking about the airships, they saw a large hard-type airship painted with a blue boar pattern slowly rising up from a position in front of them. There were four Hua characters beneath the pattern--  1  .

    Feng Cangwu was glassy-eyed about Zhang Tie's words; however, Zhu Dabiao burst out into laughter, "That's nothing strange. If you take a look in the provincial city of Huizhou Province, you would find that the airship bases over there were at least dozens of times larger than this one. The Auspicious Cloud Airport in Huizhou Province occupies over 200 square miles. Tens of thousands of airships access to that airport every day. If you were there for the first time, you might even get lost!"

    "Hahaha, I will take a look over there if there's a chance!" Zhang Tie also burst out into laughter.

    When they talked, they arrived at the entrance of the exclusive position of their airship and went to the underground.

    In Waii Sub-continent, all the airport facilities were above the ground; however, in Taixia Country, only ground crew and regular railed, steam logistics trains could move above the ground of regular airports. All the people getting off the airships had to leave the airports through professional underground tunnels. They were forbidden to leave on the ground. Almost all the airports in Taixia Country were two-floored or multi-floored. The underground buildings were far more plentiful than those on the ground. There were even huge airship and material warehouses beneath many airports. In this way, the airports could run in a higher efficiency and cause fewer accidents in normal times; in wartime, two-floored or multi-floored airports could provide the biggest protection to the airships, personnel and materials.

    Besides airports, Zhang Tie knew that almost all the highways in Taixia Country could bear large war airships. All the railways in Taixia Country spared a plain and an open land for at least 10 super large airships within 200 miles.

    The underground tunnel of the airport of Embracing Tiger City was dozens of meters in depth. It was spacious and bright. The surface of the underground tunnel was paved with cyan stone slabs. There were so many passers-by over there.

    In the daytime, besides an air vent in each dozen of meters in the tunnel, both walls of the tunnel were paved with one fluorescent strip. In each fixed distance, there was one fluorescent wall. Passengers could leave the airport through the underground tunnel.

    There were some plants in the underground tunnel. On both sides of the tunnel were shops, hotels and complete living facilities. Passengers or crew members could live here well. Those shops were selling specialties of Youzhou Province. Some companies and stores had their offices and branches here.

    "Jingling...Jingling..."

    With an euphonious tinkle of bells, an odd-look vehicle drove here from behind.

    Running on a rail which was narrower and smaller than the underground tunnel, that vehicle had a very low chassis. The entire vehicle was composed of 3 carriages. The full length of the vehicle was a bit greater than that of a bus. The three carriages were full of rows of seats. Each seat could hold 4 people. It even didn't have a roof. Therefore, it looked pretty simple and convenient.

    The vehicle was like a simple miniature train and an amplified toy for children. Two tough Siberians were sitting in the chairs at the head of the vehicle. They were stamping this manual power device by feet like playing seesaw while holding a handle by two hands respectively.

    The vehicle just moved as fast as jogging commoners. Therefore, they didn't work hard. When someone was in front of them, the tough guys just tinkled the bells by pulling the ropes to warn the passers.

    Those in front of the vehicle could give a way to it or take a seat in it.

    Watching some guys on his side jump into the vehicle, Zhang Tie understood that this vehicle was an underground scheduled bus in the airport.

    If it was replaced by a steam mini-train, the heavy smoke would cause a severe pollution in this relatively closed space. Therefore, they just used a manual railed mini-train. Commoners might be a bit tired to do that; however, it's no problem for a LV 2 soldier. Let alone this vehicle was matched with two "drivers".

    'Such a manual mini-train could definitely match the manual airplane that I used in Selnes Theater of Operations.'

    At the sight of such a mini-train, Zhang Tie revealed a smile as he felt it was very funny.

    "Papa, here's the mini-train, I want to take the mini-train, I want to take the mini-train..." A kid who had just entered the underground space exclaimed. It seemed that they were waiting on the side of the rail only for taking this mini-train.

    When the train passed by, the kid's dad instantly strode onto the train in an agile way together with the kid. They were sitting right in front of Zhang Tie.

    At the sight of Zhang Tie, the kid even made a face at him...
