- Akiko: Talking Elbows
Volume fourteenth. Get rich together
Nan Gengchen looked at Qing Chen and was stunned for a while: “Brother, I want to ask the police uncle in the police station for help. It’s not much help like the uncle he was caught in a hurry.”
“Then there is no way,” Qing Chen shook his head, and he asked further: “Have you encountered something very strange? What the hell is it?”
“It’s all right,” Nan Gengchen said nothing.
Qing Chen stopped talking.
If the other party doesn’t want to say this kind of thing, then he can only treat it as unaware.
But he had a faint guess in his heart, Nan Gengchen’s so-called weird… Could it be that the countdown also appeared on his arm?
But the countdown is invisible to others, so Qing Chen can only rely on guessing.
The countdown to his first crossing appeared at 6 o’clock last night. He skipped class and went for the first time at 12 o’clock in the evening without studying at night.
If there was a countdown on Nan Gengchen’s arm, when would it appear?
Qing Chen thought to himself, this Nan Gengchen is thin and small, and looks weak at first sight. If he really travels to that world, I don’t know if he can survive.
The relationship between the two of them is pretty good, not because of how close they are, but because their fathers both played cards and gambling, which made each other’s family conditions poor.
After chatting about this incident by chance, the two teenagers got closer.
At this moment, a classmate who was playing with a mobile phone in the class suddenly exclaimed: “Fuck!”
Before class time, there were only a dozen students in Class 3 of the second year in the classroom. Everyone turned their eyes to: “What’s wrong?”
“Look at the hot search. Jacob opened a press conference and said that he had traveled to a world of mechanical civilization. There is a complete video of his conference on the hot search,” said the student who screamed.
Jacob, American nationality, one of the most famous basketball stars in the world, has many fans.
After hearing this, the classmates immediately turned on their phones to read hot searches, and everyone was at a loss.
Only Qing Chen was stunned on the spot, because he knew what was going on with the so-called traversal and mechanical civilization!
However, he didn’t expect that before, there are people abroad who are experiencing things like crossing and countdown.
Nan Gengchen had already opened the video, and Qing Chen watched it.
In the video, Jacob was sitting behind the table, facing all the media he invited to go temporarily, and the flashes flashed densely on the spot, which was a bit dazzling.
But everyone who watched the video saw Jacob’s left arm at first glance, because that left arm had been completely replaced by a mechanical arm.
In the video, Jacob got up and took everyone to the basketball court. Then, across the entire court, he easily threw the basketball into the basket with his left hand, even for ten in a row.
“Is this a special effect?” Nan Gengchen murmured: “Is it a commercial, special effects?”
Qing Chen did not speak.
The video was brought back from abroad, and Chinese subtitles were added to the video.
In the video, Jacob said to the media: “I accidentally found a countdown on my arm last night. When the countdown ended, I actually shuttled to a strange mechanical civilization. There is also the earth, the sun and the moon, but they seem to be parallel. The universe, the progress of civilization is completely different from the world we live in.”
Jacob raised his left arm: “I have this arm through the past, as if I replaced someone over there, becoming a new self. I don’t know how it works, but It’s strength is far beyond my imagination, and it’s very flexible and precise.”
“The reason why I am holding the press conference is not to show off to you. The world is not as beautiful as imagined, but extremely dangerous. I am holding the press conference here to prevent me from being secretly taken away for research. I am here. I declare that I refuse to be the subject of research. If I disappear one day, please…”
When Qing Chen saw this place, he was surprised that Jacob was a public figure, so he couldn’t hide the fact that he had mechanical limbs.
The other party knew that the technology of that world was far beyond contemporary, so for fear that he would be taken away to study and become a guinea pig, he chose a more radical method.
This may not be a good way, or the other party may be more flustered, so he made such a decision hastily.
Qing Chen looked at Nan Gengchen, the thin and small at the same table dumbfounded.
And Qing Chen was thinking that he could not bring the boning knife over, nor the toothbrush back. It seems that the only way to bring something from there is to transform himself, or hide it in his body?
Don’t know where Jacob appeared when he traveled across the past, across the ocean?
At this time, all the students in the class are in a state of shock and doubt. It is even difficult for everyone to judge whether this hot search is true or synthetic special effects.
However, before everyone came back to their senses, the hot search rankings suddenly had a few weird incidents rushing to the list.
“A certain Internet executive was found dead at home, and a sophisticated mechanical structure suddenly appeared on his body, very similar to Jacob.”
“A certain college student claims that he has also traveled to another world, where there are not only mechanical civilizations, but also extraordinary people beyond ordinary people.”
“A high school student claimed that he not only traveled to another world, but also gained the awakening ability.”
Qing Chen frowned and watched. This series of news came faster than he thought, and not everyone could be as cautious as him.
More and more news are declaring to the world: this is not special effects, nor advertising copy, but real existence.
Someone really has crossed into that unknown and full of fantasy world.
Moreover, there are not a few traversers.
Nan Gengchen next to him murmured: “Extraordinary, mechanical civilization…Is there a chance to become an extraordinary one through the past?”
A classmate asked: “I think the probability of crossing is not small. Will there be students crossing in our school?”
“Maybe someone came to school with a mechanical limb…”
“I also want to cross…”
There are more and more classmates in the class. Whenever someone approaches the classroom, everyone will cast their eyes to see if they have any mechanical limbs.
We must know that they are only seventeen or eighteen years old when their curiosity, desire for exploration, and vanity are strongest. Adults may consider whether danger and opportunity are equal, but young people are more looking forward.
When you watch Harry Potter, you expect to be able to pass through King’s Station, and when you read novels, you also hope that you can be attracted by fairies.
But the real world is that, under normal circumstances, it is not the fairy who greets you, but the fairy jump.
So when everyone finds that they can become different after crossing the past, they will filter out some dangerous information, and then expect that they are also one of the traversers.
The protagonist of the world sounds very tempting.
Qing Chen is hardly an exception.
It’s just a little bit different. Qing Chen has really traveled through it, and has really met the otherworldly people in the legend, Lin Xiaoxiao and Li Shutong.
Ye Wan should be too.
Slowly, Qing Chen found that Nan Gengchen’s panicked expression faded, but gradually became energetic.
Qing Chen asked casually: “Is this the weird thing you just said?”
Nan Gengchen lowered his voice: “I can’t tell you yet, but don’t worry, if I can get any opportunities, I will definitely not forget you, brother.”
Qing Chen nodded: “Yeah, don’t forget the riches.”
