Chapter 742 Solisa’s Intelligence
He went to the current base and joined the personnel there first. Then, he left the city with a team of green trucks.
It took him two days to reach the new base.
This base was larger and had more staff than the previous one did.
More importantly, Roland saw a lot of special equipment that he had only heard about from the news, such as small particle colliders and sun furnaces.
“It seems that I’ve become a piece of national-level confidential equipment.” Roland heaved a sigh.
Hearing Roland’s joke, the director smiled. “Of course. You’re the only one of your kind in the world. No such thing as hiding you too well.”
At this moment, the director was giving him a tour in the huge base that felt like an underground metropolis. “A lot of our secrets are kept here. The whole underground space equals a small city with a three-million population,” said the director softly. “I’ll help you get used to this place. In a few days, you’ll have to report to the real director here.” “Is he easy to talk to?”
“Everybody here is easy to talk to as long as you don’t make great mistakes.”
“What counts as great mistakes?”
“Destroying important facilities on purpose, or defection.” The director smiled. “So, it’s actually very easy to talk to them, right?” So that’s how it is.
While the director showed Roland around in the enormous facility, many people observed Roland with the monitoring equipment on the way.
The researchers, especially the biologists and cytologists in the front rows, watched him so carefully that their eyes were glowing.
“Is he Huang Wenwei, the experiment subject codenamed ‘Deity’?”.
“He looks so ordinary.”
“I thought that he would be drifting here instead of walking.”
“Based on the magnetic field observation function on the hidden cameras, his biological magnetic field is much more powerful and larger than normal. It’s at least fifty percent greater.”
“Anything else?” “That’s our only discovery so far. We can’t study his DNA until we get his cells.”
“Then should he stay in the neuro department for a few months first?”
“Of course not. The DNA department will study him first.”
“I think the micro energy department can study him in terms of energy transformation first.”
“It’s clearly about biology. Does it have anything to do with micro energy?”
“Don’t talk like that. I think that the uniqueness of such people is essentially based on new energy that we’ve never observed before…”
While those researchers were all trying to drag Roland to their own department, the director of this base said, “Okay, enough fighting. Comrade Huang can go wherever he wants. You cannot stop him or even make suggestions to him. Do you understand?”
“Wait, isn’t he here to be studied?”
“No,” replied the director with a smile. “We’re to work with him for his research.”
“That doesn’t sound right. We’ve hired a boss, not an experiment subject?”
The director also smiled. “You can totally ignore him. He probably doesn’t want to be studied by you either. He would’ve been hiding all this time if he weren’t spotted by our staff.”
All the researchers understood what the director meant.
Taking an internal commute vehicle that was similar to a sightseeing bus, Roland spent several hours going through the facilities and structures of this place.
On the way, the old director pointed out areas that he wasn’t supposed to enter without permission.
Eventually, Roland was brought to a dormitory for unmarried people on the third level.
All the dormitories for unmarried people were the same. Even those where the leaders lived had the same decor.
It wasn’t very large. Plus the small bathroom, it only had a coverage of about 35 square meters.
However, it was spacious enough for one individual.
Roland also saw his virtual cabin in a corner.
Noticing that it was already evening, he went to the cafeteria on this level for dinner.
The director had given him a white IC card with his photo on it before leaving, saying that it was his pass in this place. He could unlock doors and buy food with the card.
Roland went out with the IC card for the cafeteria.
He didn’t remember other locations well, but he memorized where the cafeteria was.
It was because the director mentioned that several real top chefs ran the cafeteria, and he could have as many fruits and beverages as he wanted.
The cafeteria was quite lively. Nothing happened when he just came in.
But as he waited in line, he found that the environment gradually fell quiet.
Soon, he realized that almost everybody was staring at him.
He bought some food and added a few free appetizers to his tray. He then sat down at an empty table and started eating.
He had to admit that the food was quite delicious. Even more delicious than what he had in the previous base.
He was still eating when a young man wearing a military uniform sat down across the table with a tray.
The guy was quite handsome, but he was only mediocre compared to Schuck.
After he sat down, he said with a smile, “Hello, I am Lu Yong, deputy captain of the Security Division. May I ask if you’re Comrade Huang Wenwei?”
“Yes.” Roland nodded. “Deputy Captain Lu, is there anything I can do for you?” “Can we spar with each other after dinner?” Roland was briefly stunned. “Spar?”
“Yes. Your reputation has been spreading in the base for days,” said Lu Yong with a smile. “I’m very curious about how strong a man whose superpowers are acknowledged by the authorities can be.”
“You don’t believe in my superpowers?” Roland asked while chewing the tasteful meat.
“I do. I have no doubt about your abilities since the authorities have acknowledged them.” Lu Yong waved his hand. “It’s just that I’m sort of a martial artist, and I want to practice with different opponents.”
“Okay. We can do that half an hour after dinner.” Roland nodded and accepted the request.
He wanted to try his abilities too… Besides, there were usually only two options for a newcomer to distinguish himself in a new environment.
He should either demonstrate his strength or highlight someone else’s as a green leaf.
“Thank you.” Lu Yong was slightly surprised at Roland’s quick decision and delighted to hear an acceptance. “You know where the training room is, right?”
“I do. I can always ask around if I can’t find it.”
“I’ll go prepare there while I wait for you.”
After saying that, Lu Yong finished all his food quickly in no more than two minutes.
He then left with his tray.
Roland, on the other hand, enjoyed his food unhurriedly. He found that a lot of other people ate faster after Lu Yong left, cleaned their tableware, and left the cafeteria in a hurry.
When Roland left, there were few people remaining in the cafeteria.
Roland was quite full. He didn’t wander to the training room until after a twenty-minute rest.
The state government was always generous to researchers. The training room, including a space for rest, was quite large.
The best training tools were hung on the wall. Then, at the center of the room were four rings for boxing.
Three of them were already occupied, and Lu Yong was standing in the rightmost one and warming himself up.
He had put on boxers and a pair of gloves.
There were at least three hundred people in the rest place too.
Fortunately, the training room was quite large. Even three hundred people didn’t fill the place.
Hardly had Roland arrived at the door when someone noticed him. They shouted, “He’s here! The challenger is here!”
Then, everybody looked at Roland.
After Roland came in, he found unknown equipment lying next to a lot of people. He even saw a dozen high-speed cameras.
Roland looked around and found Lu Yong. He then hopped to the edge of the ring and jumped in.
“Put them on.” Lu Yong threw a pair of gloves to Roland. “Do you want a helmet?”
Roland shook his head. “You can’t hit me.”
After he said that, all the audience blew whistles.
Lu Yong had been practicing martial arts since childhood and joined the army at 18. He was trained for the special forces and assigned to many dangerous tasks.
After gaining enough honor, he was sent to this place for security work. He was a real capable fighter and could easily beat five other security guards on his own.
All those security guards were former special force soldiers.
Yet, Roland declared that Lu Yong couldn’t touch him. How confident was he?
However, the audience didn’t dislike him because of his cockiness.
After all, confidence was a well-appreciated attribute in the army.
“Then please go easy on me.” Lu Yong smiled.
At this moment, another young man in military uniform jumped into the ring and said, “I’ll be your referee. Are you ready to start?”
Roland waved his hand. “Wait, I need to make preparations.”
Everybody was slightly confused. Roland snapped his fingers, and his body glowed twice, which shocked everybody for quite a while. “Is it a magic trick?” “I can’t tell, but I don’t think it is.” “He’s glowing? Do we have any tools that can monitor energy changes? Check the data.”
He had cast two buffs on himself, namely Body Fortification and Agility Augmentation.
Then, Roland put on his gloves and said, “I’m ready.”
Lu Yong finally came back to himself. He immediately assumed a defensive pose warily.
Whether or not Roland’s previous glow was real, he had to take it seriously now.
The referee raised his right hand high and motioned quickly. “Let the match begin!”
After a collision, Lu Yong took three steps back, his gloves protecting his face. He seemed rather shocked.
Lu Yong’s abdomen was hit heavily. His body was bent, and his eyes were full of disbelief.
Then, he fell with his mouth wide open.
At this moment, the referee was still in the same position with his hand down.
Then, Roland looked at him. “Can you announce that I won?”
“O-oh, right!” The referee finally realized what happened and shouted, “The winner is Comrade Huang.”
It was not until this moment that the audience all went crazy.
All the researchers madly ran to the dozen high-speed cameras to see what just happened, because they didn’t see Roland’s movement at all.
By the time they saw anything, Roland had already hit his opponent’s abdomen.
Roland jumped out of the ring, and many young men in military uniforms looked at him with admiration.
Roland returned to his room, took a shower, set the alarm clock to ring at ten, and then lay on the bed.
There were still two hours to go before the start of the game tonight. He might as well get some sleep. He was rather tired from the journey over the past two days.
At this moment, the footage where Roland put Lu Yong down was played and replayed.
When the frames were slowed down, it could be seen how Roland lowered his back, lunged forward, and punched Lu Yong right in his abdomen.
“According to our calculations, Roland’s speed was 40 meters per second. Because they were too close to each other, he had taken Lu Yong down before we realized what happened.” “That was an inhuman speed.” “Even a tiger couldn’t have been as fast.”
As was known, felids were among the fastest predators.𝘧𝘳𝑒ℯ𝔀𝘦𝒃𝘯𝒐𝐯e𝗹. co𝐦
Even a kitten could swat an ambushing snake. The adult cats were even faster.
“But he wasn’t strong enough. He punched Lu Yong’s abdomen but didn’t cause much damage.”
“He must’ve held back. A man who can move 100 meters per second can’t be harmless. By my estimation, he could’ve put a hole in Lu Yong’s abdomen with his punch.”
“Have you figured out the nature of the glows before the match?”
Everyone shook their heads.
It wasn’t their fault. They had too little data.
At this moment, the director took out a flash disk and smiled. “All his files from the previous base are in this. Each department will get a copy of them and study their content well. Whether or not when we can make any achievements depends on your hard work.”
All the researchers had glowing eyes.
“But like I said, we’re going to work with him, not command him. Got it?”
At about twenty to ten, the alarm clock rang.
Roland rose and checked the virtual cabin. There wasn’t anything redundant inside, such as pebbles or garbage.
Then he lay down.
Hardly had he entered the game when Andonara hugged him.
He had logged offline in his bedroom.
Andonara hugged him and seemed to be crying. “You’ve been gone for two days. I was so scared.”
Roland said helplessly, “I’m sorry, but something happened to me in my world.” “Is it anything serious?” Roland shook his head. “It’s trivial. I’ll let you know if I’ll ever be gone for days again.”
“Okay.” Andonara was relaxed. Then she said, “Right, a beautiful half-elf from your people came for you.”
Was it Solisa?
“She came yesterday and left because you weren’t here. She wanted you to find her in the cat community in Wetland City.”
Roland nodded and cuddled with Andonara for a while. Then he teleported to Wetland City.
He came to the cat-human community and saw that Solisa was teasing a few kittens with dried fish.
Roland walked to her and asked, “You were looking for me?”
“Yes.” Solisa gave all the dried fish to the cute kittens and said in a low voice, “I know who’s been conspiring with the liches against you.”
