Chapter 50 Part 1 Brain death
Hearing that, Xiào Mu looked at Leo and inexplicably felt a little embarrassed. At this moment, his terminal vibrated. It is a call from Zhao Meng.
Upon connected, Zhao Meng’s voice sounded vaguely excited, “Xiao Mu, a guide just contacted our company. The sample medicine will be delivered to the company in about half an hour. Where are you? I’ll send it to you later.”
According to Delish’s procedure, any guide who intends to sell their medicine on consignment needs to courier a sample of their work to the company. After the company determines the efficacy of the medicine, they will set the price. If the other party agrees with the price, the medicine will be officially put into the store for sale.
“No need,” Xiào Mu glanced at Leo, secretly sighing that the call came in time. He got up and said, “I will go back to the company immediately.”
Leo’s expression looked calm and he doesn’t look like he suffered any shock. Instead, Leo even secretly felt delighted because of Xiào Mu’s reaction. He sent Xiào Mu to the office building and left in his aircraft after Xiào Mu entered the building.
Not long after Xiào Mu arrived at the company, the sample medicine arrived. Xiào Mu took the medicine in his hand and immediately detected the effect: [Instantly recovered 500 spiritual power, with an interval of two hours between use.]
“Recover 500 points, the price is 2,000 star coins.” Xiào Mu stood by Zhao Meng’s desk and said.
Zhao Meng relayed Xiào Mu’s words to the other party. After a while, Zhao Meng raised his head, “Xiao Mu, he wants to ask about medicine-making.”
As Zhao Meng said that, he expanded his virtual screen and the conversation between him and the other party is immediately shown in front of Xiào Mu. Xiào Mu read it and said, “Let him record the process of his medicine-making and send it over.”
Zhao Meng passed the message to the other party. When he looked at Xiào Mu, his eyes lit up slightly, “Hawke has recently increased his spiritual filaments. Also, he is going to try to use spiritual power to make medicine.”
Xiào Mu smiled and said, “Hawke has studied about medicine before, so he learned much faster than guides who only recently came into contact with medicine-making at the Golden Tower.”
When Zhao Meng heard the words, he also smiled. His terminal vibrated, and the other party’s video is transferred over. He clicked on it and watched the video with Xiào Mu. After the video is finished, Xiào Mu pointed out the other party’s shortcomings. When he finished speaking, Zhao Meng had already typed out what he said without missing a word and sent it to the other party. The other party replied with a ‘thank you’. There is no further response after that.
Xiào Mu watched the video again. The other party used a common basic medicine formula, which is completely different from the materials he used for medicine-making. Xiào Mu began to consider that if he got the free time, he will study the formula. If he can improve the system’s prescription and the existing formula in the empire, maybe there will be unexpected discoveries.
Since Zhao Meng’s side didn’t need his help anymore, Xiào Mu went to the outside hall and checked the appointments for sentinels’ spiritual treatment. Looking at the progress of his system skills, Xiào Mu is not satisfied with it. Treating 20 people per day is too slow. He thought for a while and asked Xiaojin to send a message to the sentinels whose appointment is in later days, and asked to advance their appointment time. If the person is not free at that time, then the person can follow their original appointment time. From now onwards, Xiào Mu will increase from 20 people to 50 people every day according to the original schedule. In fact, treating 20 people a day is an exaggeration, let alone 50 people. But today he has already caused a sensation online. ‘When there are too many lice, he is not afraid of the itching anymore’. No point worrying too much about other things, becoming stronger is the priority. After importing the information to Xiaojin, Xiào Mu thought for a moment and contacted the construction company. He wanted to install an air purification system plus an odor isolation system for his company. In this way, he can use his free time to make medicine in the office at any time, which will save time.
At 3.00 pm, Xiào Mu returned to his apartment and went directly to the medicine-making room to do research. Not long after, Ah Da called him at the door and said someone came to visit. The person here is Bach, the grandson of the 4th Army major general. Bach is a sentinel with a spiritual power only at Level C. He directly indicated his intention and wanted Xiào Mu to help him break through. After he finished speaking, people from the 3rd Army also came to visit. Then, people from the 6th, 7th, and 8th Army arrived, all with the same purpose.
Xiào Mu had a headache and directly refused, “Everyone has a different tolerance to pain. One might get killed by the pain in just a few minutes, which is very dangerous.”
However, those who came said that they didn’t mind. Bach looked fearless and full of the desire to become stronger, “I can hold on. I have watched the live broadcast. With your help, there will never be a problem.”
Xiào Mu frowned, “That is just good luck. Spiritual power is the same as physical strength. As long as you train hard, you can become stronger. The strength you obtained by breaking through using shortcuts is not as good as those who trained hard.”
Bach’s eyes opened widely as he said, “I don’t care. You said it so simply but do you know how much time it takes to break through a level with training? I can’t wait for that so please help me. As long as you agree, the reward is up to your request.”
“Me too, any requests are acceptable.” The rest of the people in the living room hurriedly spoke, looking at Xiào Mu expectantly.
Xiào Mu’s face darkened slightly and he rejected, “I can’t give my promise. The process is very dangerous. I can’t guarantee the safety of the person who wants to break through. Please leave.”
“I don’t care. I won’t go back as long as you don’t agree. Or I can just take medicine in front of you. Then you will have to help when I am about to die.” Bach raised his chin stubbornly.
Xiào Mu hated being threatened the most. He said with a cold face, “It’s none of my business if you want to die, but please do it somewhere away from here and don’t dirty my place.”
The other people didn’t say anything, they just looked at Bach in silence. As long as Xiào Mu loosen his stand, their goal would be easy to achieve.
Bach’s nostril flared twice, “You!” Just then, an intermediate low-grade healing pill appeared in his hand. Bach swallowed it and said, “My grandfather is a general of the 4th Army. I think you won’t dare to let me die, AHH…” Before Bach finished speaking, he cried out painfully and fell to the ground from the sofa, holding his head.
Just when Leo entered the hall, he heard Bach’s threatening words. He knew what had happened when he saw the situation and walked to Xiào Mu’s side with a cold expression. Xiào Mu glared at Bach, he felt particularly angry, and his breathing became heavy with the emotional change.
Leo coldly watched Bach rolling on the ground, and then looked at Xiào Mu comfortingly, “Don’t be afraid, it has nothing to do with you.”
Leo’s voice is steady and Xiào Mu glanced at him. Calming down, Xiào Mu responded in a low voice, “En.”
Xiào Mu looked at Bach’s red and blue bars and couldn’t help but sneer. Bach’s spiritual power was at 6500/6500. But Bach took the pill to restore 3,000 spiritual power. In short, to suddenly increase his spiritual power to more than 9,000 points, Bach is simply seeking death.
Leo looked at Bach coldly and motioned to Ah Da, “Throw him out, and make sure to throw far away.”
“Major General Leo,” a major general of the 7th Army said suddenly. “That’s not good. If old General Bach knew about this, I’m afraid the 4th Army will get into conflict with the 1st Army.”
“Conflict?” Leo sneered. “I can’t ask for more!” At least, they can save time from making more trouble as an excuse (to seek conflict).
A major general of the 8th Army stopped Ah Da, “Don’t be stupid. You are the guard assigned to the god-level guide but Bach did not endanger his(XM) safety. If Bach is thrown out by you and something happens, you have to pay full responsibility.”
Ah Da’s face looked fierce as he replied, “Military orders are absolute.”
Ah Da is about to stretch out his hand when Xiào Mu said, “Ah Da, don’t move him.”
Suddenly, everyone’s eyes fell on Xiào Mu. The rest of the army group had their eyes shone slightly. Xiào Mu is about to give in!
Xiào Mu looked at Bach blankly and waited for Bach’s spiritual power to almost drop to 0. Then he used Pin Hold skill, and then said to the others, “Raise a barrier on yourself.”
Xiào Mu’s spiritual filaments reached out but he didn’t bother with the filaments that exploded due to Bach’s excess spiritual powers, nor the filaments that suddenly appeared and withered. Instead, he simply straightened out those filaments that got tangled into a ball. Before long, Bach gradually calmed down. His uniform shirt is completely soaked with sweat, and his pants got crumpled by his movement when he was in pain; looking particularly haggard. Bach got up from the ground, and the major general of the 7th Army couldn’t help asking, “How is it?”
Bach closed his eyes and felt for a moment, then suddenly opened his eyes. His eyes turned red and he glared at Xiào Mu, “How is this happening? Why am I still at Level C?” He is clearly C-rank at first!
Xiào Mu: “You should feel thankful that you are still alive and didn’t drop straight to Level E.”
Xiào Mu knew in his heart that Bach’s biggest problem is he tried to jump too much ahead, which his original spiritual filaments are forced to grow and exploded a lot, resulting in irreversible damage to his original spiritual power. In fact, Bach only dropped from 6,500 to 5,500 points, which is already very lucky. But Xiào Mu won’t tell them that. If the truth is told, someone will definitely do the same thing as Bach, but calculate the value better next time.
“No, it’s impossible,” Bach’s eyeballs bulged, “Did you deliberately not help me?”
Xiào Mu coldly said, “I start to regret not letting you die deliberately.”
Bach thought of his reduced spiritual power. He is originally the weakest among the grandchildren generation of the army generals. But now, he ended up even further behind the others. Bach shook his head in despair, “I don’t believe it!”
Bach moved to grab Xiào Mu’s arm, but Leo stepped forward to stop him. Leo pushed him back and Bach staggered a few steps then hit the wall.
Xiào Mu ignored Bach and looked at the others, “I already said that breakthrough is very dangerous, the chance of success is very low, and the more likely result is death and irreversible damage to spiritual power.” He helplessly said, “The medicine is sold publicly. If there is no danger, why do I need to specially come out with a measuring device for testing? Doesn’t that look like I have too much free time in my hand?”
Some people in the army groups felt very reasonable when they heard the words. Although they were very agitated with the thought of breaking through, getting a downgrade is a more serious blow to them than death, and they did not dare to try it lightly. Some people’s expressions changed a little, as they doubted that Xiào Mu didn’t try to help at all. But that thought made them even more afraid to speak. Xiào Mu’s attitude is very obvious and he didn’t want to help. If Xiào Mu can really control the result, then there is almost only 1 result from trying the stunt again, and that is downgrading. At that time, they won’t be able to blame anyone. After all, Xiào Mu would be considered saving their life. In the end, the people from various armies stood up and said goodbye. Bach looked at Xiào Mu unwillingly and left angrily.
Xiào Mu sighed lightly and leaned back on the sofa. He asked Leo, “Say, do you think there will be anyone else who wants to try that again?”
Leo: “No. No sentinel can afford a downgrade.”
Xiào Mu smiled and said, “That’s great.” Then he helplessly added, “I thought it would take at least a few days before someone came to the door, but I didn’t expect them to be so fast.” When Xiào Mu knew that the process of him helping b to break through was broadcast live, he knew that this would happen.
Leo smiled sarcastically, “It’s nothing more than weakling worrying about being left behind.”
Xiào Mu looked at Leo curiously and asked, “Have, have you ever thought of doing the same?”
Leo raised his eyebrows, “Do I need to break through? Level only determines the starting line. Training is the root of becoming stronger. Even with people with a higher level than me, I have the confidence to defeat them.”
Leo has no expressions on his defined face, his eyes are focused, and he looked confident. Xiào Mu looked at Leo and had to admit that he is an excellent sentinel. Xiào Mu smiled and said, “If everyone thought the same as you, these things wouldn’t happen.”
Leo: “If you don’t like it, just refuse them from coming in.”
Xiào Mu spread his hands, “They are all military officials, so it’s hard to refuse them.”
“There is nothing wrong with it, as long as you like it.” Leo didn’t care about those minor matters.
In his heart, Xiào Mu thought it must be because of his family background that this person can do whatever he wanted without hesitation! Then he thought about what happened after Leo’s confession and felt his heart moved slightly. Leo has restrained himself a lot in front of him(XM).
