- Akiko: Talking Elbows
Volume sixteenth. There is only one life
When something transcends the mundane in life, it is a very romantic thing.
It’s like a fairy tale for adults.
The Hogwarts admission notice that you didn’t receive when you were a child seems to be not far away from yourself.
However, this vicious news is like a basin of cold water, extinguishing the enthusiasm of many people.
Only at this time can everyone realize that the world is far from being so beautiful.
Maybe the world will change, but human nature will not.
Future technology is too valuable. Not to mention the materials and structures of the bionic mechanical limbs, the technology of connecting the mechanical limbs with neurons is enough to drive many people crazy.
This is the real future technology. Instead of looking forward to alien technology, it is better to plunder things that are close to you.
And the most important thing is that ordinary people who have passed through and returned are vulnerable to a blow even if they have mechanical limbs in the face of some armed organizations.
The deceased died violently at home, and the murderer stabbed his heart with a dagger under his ribs.
Compared with mechanical limbs, this dagger has no technical content.
This is not a fairy tale, but more like an adult satirical fable.
For a time, many travellers who were impulsive to reveal their identity because of the heat began to fear.
Some people returned with mechanical limbs, worried that they would also be tricked.
Another part of the traversers, such as Qing Chen, does not have any mechanical limbs, but who knows if others covet some other things?
Now, some people in the Japanese media have speculated that perhaps killing a traverser can replace the opponent to obtain the traversal qualification.
This guess is crazy!
Before it proves to be feasible or unfeasible, the trust between people will probably disappear.
Nan Gengchen, who was still enthusiastic before, finally no longer thought about where to invite Qing Chen for dinner.
Just listen to Nan Gengchen whispering: “I finally had a chance to change my destiny. Suddenly it became a horror and horror game.”
To say that Nan Gengchen and Qing Chen are both sick and pitying each other, and both have a gambling father, which makes the family jump.
Nan Gengchen is relatively better. At least his parents have not yet divorced, and the house in the family has not been sold. Daily life can be guaranteed, but there is no pocket money.
Qing Chen was even more miserable, with nothing left.
When classmates get together on weekdays, no one would call them. After all, they couldn’t even pay for the billiards.
Nan Gengchen has a girl she likes, but because she doesn’t have any pocket money, she feels inferior and dare not say anything to that female classmate.
So the two of them are actually very eager to make money. Before Nan Gengchen wrote novels and contributed articles to magazines, and wanted to earn some manuscript fees, it turned out to be nothing.
Seeing Nan Gengchen’s discouragement, Qing Chen felt it was a good thing: “You have also seen this news. I mean, if you have also crossed over, you must be careful, and don’t talk nonsense when you come back.”
“Well, I know,” Nan Gengchen nodded, and he said with some emotion: “Why do you think we two are so poor?”
Qing Chen thought for a while and said, “Your dad is playing cards when someone else’s dad is desperate.”
Although Nan Gengchen complained a little bit about his father, it was still a bit uncomfortable to be said by Qing Chen. He was not convinced and said, “What about your dad?”
Qing Chen: “Ao, my dad is playing cards desperately.”
Nan Gengchen: “…”
There was a moment of silence between the two. After a while, Nan Gengchen asked, “By the way, how did your dad get in?”
“I reported it, I hope he can reflect on it,” Qing Chen replied calmly.
Nan Gengchen was taken aback for a moment: “Or, did you report my dad too?”
Qing Chen: “???”
At this time, the class bell rang.
The second class in the morning was English, but the geography teacher came in.
The name of the Los Angeles Foreign Language School carries three words in foreign languages, so foreign languages must be emphasized.
The status of English teachers is relatively high. Basically, the English teachers in every class are very good. Foreign teachers are also hired in the school. From the beginning of junior high school, students will be taught foreign teachers every week.
In addition, there are a few classes in the school that even set up small language subjects such as ‘Japanese’ and ‘German’, and they do not learn English.
I saw the middle-aged geography teacher Chen Yandong said on the podium: “Your teacher, Mr. Du, has asked for a leave of absence. The second period will be replaced by a geography class, and the English will be moved to the third period tomorrow morning.”
Qing Chen was stunned when he heard this. Maybe it was because today’s things had too much impact. He always felt that asking for leave from the head teacher seemed not so simple.
Is Teacher Du Yihong also a traverser?
But so many traversers are concentrated in Los Angeles, how many are there in the country?
That’s not right!
Qing Chen lowered his head to prevent others from seeing his pupils. In an instant, his pupils narrowed suddenly.
Everything that happened today flashed through my mind like a movie, and all the information was summarized, summarized, and sorted in an instant.
The second batch of traversers who had just counted down appeared on their arms.
After knowing that she was going to cross, the panicked little girl was interviewed by her parents.
The Traverser anchor who came out live to bring the goods.
Pieces of information, like falling leaves in the sky, while Qing Chen picked up pieces of “useful” leaves from the sky at his fingertips.
At the next moment, Qing Chen raised his head in amazement. The traversers found today are like dots, concentrated in more than a dozen cities.
Even residents of certain cities have expressed doubts on the Internet as to why they have not seen a traverser in their city.
In other words, the distribution of traversers may be very concentrated!
Concentrated in more than a dozen cities!
The amount of analysis was too much, and Qing Chen couldn’t help being dizzy.
The last class ended at 5:40 in the afternoon, and Qing Chen skipped class again.
Before leaving, the study committee member shouted: “Qingchen, it’s time to pay the book fees tomorrow, don’t forget.”
“Got it,” Qing Chen waved.
Then, he quickly left the classroom under Nan Gengchen’s envious eyes.
In the twilight, the students who had just finished class rushed to the cafeteria to eat, waiting for the arrival of the late self-study.
But Qing Chen quickly passed through the crowd and stepped out from a corner of the campus wall.
When I went home, I took off my school uniform and changed into clothes I didn’t wear very often, and then took a cap to go out.
He searched for the address of Yinrun Central Garden on his mobile phone. It was about six kilometers away from the school, which was the community where Huang Jixian was located.
I don’t know why, there is always some kind of urge to see. Although he doesn’t know which building and unit the other party lives in, he just wants to take a look and want to know what happened after Huang Ji’s return. What happened to the other world.
Qing Chen has no extra money to take a taxi, and only 50 cents are left in his pocket. This is all his savings before he plays chess with Uncle Zhang at Fulai Supermarket next time.
In the past, Qing Chen didn’t pay much attention to physical exercise, so she followed running exercises at school.
But now he suddenly realized that he couldn’t do without exercise. He must have a strong physique to face a sufficiently dangerous world.
The word Ming has never had a homophone in Chinese characters. Perhaps this implies that there is only one life.
Must be cherished.
