Embers Ad Infinitum - Chapter 391
Hearing Shang Jianyao’s question, Du Heng silently said for a few seconds:
He answered quite vaguely, completely different from his previous performance as a good teacher.
Thinking that Du Heng said when he was in the ruins of Marsh No. 1 that he wanted to know similar important information, he needed to come up with equivalent news exchanges, and Jiang Baimian’s mouth that he had intended to ask questions closed again.
Shang Jianyao thought about it for a few seconds, and asked without paying attention:
“Who is Xiao Chong?”
Du Heng smiled and said,
“Actually, I am not that clear. I have lost a lot of memories. I only know my life. One of his goals is to find him, and he is very dangerous and may involve some secrets of the old world.”
“I have a way to retrieve your memory!” Shang Jianyao volunteered.
Regarding this, Long Yuehong and Bai Chen are also more confident, after all, the “old tune group” has a “destiny pearl.”
Du Heng glanced at a few of them, and chuckled:
“It’s useless, unless you can find the’Bodhi’ realm awakeners who have truly entered the’New World’ and use the’Fate Link’.”
Can this also be guessed? Jiang Baimian was surprised.
When she talked about DiMarco-related matters just now, she only briefly mentioned what the awakened person was doing, and she was as vague as possible in terms of performance.
Du Heng only based on the few words in this part of the experience, combined with Shang Jianyao’s performance just now, and guessed that the “Old Tune Team” had items that could use “Fate Tong” in his hands.
Regarding this, Jiang Baimian can only sigh with emotion: he is indeed a mysterious powerhouse.
Shang Jianyao was not irritated by being underestimated, and asked doubtfully:
“Did you delete your memory by the awakened person in the’Last Man’ realm?”
“It should not.” Du Heng’s tone was not so sure.
The topic then entered a dead end, until Jiang Baimian turned to ask:
“How dangerous is Xiao Chong?”
Du Heng pondered for a moment, and laughed:
“To be honest, he and I have never met him head-on.
“Hmm…All signs indicate that his level of danger is beyond your imagination. If this city doesn’t have so many awakeners at the level of the’Spirit Corridor’, he may be able to destroy this place. “
Human-shaped nuclear bomb? Jiang Baimian’s eyebrows moved slightly.
Shang Jianyao laughed out:
“Fortunately, he only likes to play games and doesn’t like to go out. “
Du Heng didn’t continue this topic, but just shared the previous sharing of the “old-tuned group” and talked about the various experiences of his journey.
“That sect is really interesting. They combined worship with some objects and materials excavated from the ruins of the city At the age of tenacity, he derives a set of very, very interesting doctrines on his own. “Du Heng smelled the more and more intense aroma of grilled fish, and talked loudly. “They regard barbells and sandbags as sacred objects, as proof that the old world has worshipped their own years of age, and they exercise hard every day. The slogan is’ Only the body will not let you down,’muscle is supreme’,’only a strong body can help you open the door to a new world’…”The
god of fitness? Jiang Baimian suddenly came up with such a word
in her mind. Then, she Reminiscent of Dukas, Major of the City Defense Army.
This officer is crazy obsessed with muscles.
Shang Jianyao didn’t care about the others and asked directly:
“What is their sacrament? “
High-protein food, if there is a drink similar to the old world protein powder, it is regarded as a god gift. “Du Heng laughed and said, “What they adore is the “Twisted Shadow” in April. “
From a practical perspective, their teachings are actually more practical than many sects. “After listening for a while, Bai Chen gave his opinion.
Jiang Baimian followed with a smile and said:
“No matter what angle you say, it is not wrong to keep fit.”
“So they have a lot of believers, especially in the army, among the relic hunters.” Du Heng nodded, ” A good body, coupled with good skills, and good marksmanship are really a magic weapon for survival in the dust.” The
army… Jiang Baimian nodded thoughtfully.
Long Yuehong couldn’t help but interject:
“Many people don’t want to exercise, but they don’t have the conditions.” If you do
n’t have enough food and drink, fitness will only hurt yourself.
“For example…” Shang Jianyao laughed, but didn’t call his name.
Long Yuehong knew that he couldn’t accept this sentence, and the answer would definitely be “Hey, it was only 1.75 meters after the genetic modification…”
He closed his mouth and waited for Du Heng’s answer.
Du Heng laughed at himself:
“I don’t know exactly how they develop believers, but they should give some food regularly.”
This is the biggest weapon of dust mission… Jiang Baimian nodded lightly.
After talking about this organization called “Sacred Body Cult”, Du Heng talked about his experience in different places. He even went to be controlled by the “Sacred Desire” sect and the “Transcending Spirituality” sect to form confrontation The “Spirit Island” is also the “Best Paradise” among many people.
It is suitable for growing fruits, hemp and other things, and there are mature supporting industries in exchange for various materials.
Listening, Shang Jianyao suddenly asked:
“Have you ever been to the Salvation Army?”
” Yes .” Du Heng smiled, “It’s actually not very distinctive, but people’s mental outlook may be different. , And there are two extremes…”
He just said here, the chef cooked the fish, separated the skin, steak, and meat, and brought them in front of them.
The rich fragrance made everyone take a deep breath.
“It’s ready to eat.” Du Heng took the lead to fork a piece of fish steak, half-closed his eyes, and took a bite.
Shang Jianyao went straight to a piece of fish skin. It combines those spices and has its own uniqueness. Together, the two make people secrete their saliva crazily and leave their mouths fragrant.
This meal was a great time for the guests and the host, and even Gnawa was full of several batteries.
When the “Old Tune Group” bid farewell to Du Heng, the sky was completely dark, and the pedestrians on the road hurriedly stepped in. The number of pedestrians was many times more than that in the afternoon.
“It’s a pity that I didn’t leave any contact information.” Unfortunately, not only Shang Jianyao, but also Jiang Baimian.
Du Heng did not have a mobile phone connected to the original city network, nor did he give an address or telegram frequency band. Facing the question of the “old-tuned group”, he only waved his hand happily, then turned around and walked into the crowd, disappearing into the corner of the street.
Hearing this, Gnawa “thought” for a while and said:
“Do you want to rub his help?”
… Don’t be so blunt… Also, when did you learn the word “rub”? Jiang Baimian’s expression almost stiffened on his face.
The most important thing this broken robot should learn is human affection and sophistication!
Hey, I knew it was left to Shang Jianyao… Jiang Baimian couldn’t help but glance at the side.
Shang Jianyao said earnestly:
“As long as Xiao Chong is still in Primordial City, we will meet Teacher Du Heng again sooner or later.
“At that time, I will learn from him how to make myself look mysterious. “
…I hope.” “Jiang Baimian sighed, and said to Long Yuehong and Bai Chen, “Go back separately.” “
This time the destination is one of the safe houses.
Seeing that the time was almost up, the “Old Tune Team” turned on the radio transceiver.
This is waiting for the “United Industries” arms dealer Lehman to give the time and place of the transaction.
——Terence of the “Black Shirt Party” has already given Shang Jianyao a reply, saying that it is indeed difficult to raise such a huge sum of money, but equivalent materials can be added.
They can charge no interest, provided that sufficient collateral must be given.
Jiang Baimian’s plan is to take the old military exoskeleton device as a mortgage, wait until the transaction is completed, and then change it to a new type of robotic arm. Anyway, the thing will not be used for a while, and it can be placed in Terence. There, he waited for someone to pay his debts slowly.
Shang Jian Yao proposed to use Gnawa as a mortgage, but Terence refused without hesitation.
Now that everything was ready, they didn’t waste time, contacted Lehman at the specific safe house, and then waited for a reply at the agreed time.
It took a long time for the radio transmitter to receive a signal.
While receiving, Jiang Baimian relied on the auxiliary chip to quickly and simply start decoding.
When the word was first translated, her eyelids jumped.
Jiang Baimian speeded up the progress and quickly completed the translation of the entire telegram:
“Help! 55 Kornet Street.”
Seeing the content of the telegram, Long Yuehong blurted out:
“Lehman Yu In danger?”
