Show Love System - Chapter 4
Shi Lingxi didn’t pretend to be polite. After he finished the sausage, he continued to eat the biscuits and shared his three years of experience with Lou Yuan.
After separating from the army, Shi Lingxi and his classmates joined a large envoy. Traveling about 2000 kilometers from Xiacheng to Beicheng he passed through nearly 30 bases. When they started the journey there were about 200 people, by the end only 20 remained. It took less than five or six months for Shi Lingxi to feel that he had died countless times, sometimes he also felt that it was no big deal to die.
He was able to reach Beicheng only because of his luck and strength. Even though he is not that powerful he is not without any means. His parents are doctors, Shi Lingxi had been acting as a doctor in casual teams.
After these three years of honing his medical skills, Shi Lingxi is not inferior to a regular surgeon. For instance, in his backpack, there is a notebook containing a lot of information about mutated species which were observed by him on the way. Such data is not available even in the research facilities.
“Turned out to be a clever little doctor!” Xiong Kun blurted out and winked towards Lou Yuan.
Originally Shi Lingxi only had a beast type power, which wasn’t worth much. But now he turned out to be a seasoned doctor, with his unknown potential, his medical skills have more room to play.
Shi Lingxi glanced at Xiong Kun, then looked at Lou Yuan but Lou Yuan didn’t utter a single word, or to be more precise he didn’t intend to speak.
Shi Lingxi bowed his head, even if he didn’t say anything his disappointment was obvious. He took out his notes and recounted his experiences. He also had a pen and a map in his hands, from North to South some places were marked on it.
Shi Lingxi is very clear in his heart that the apocalypse days are no better than the past, beautiful things often represent traps and dangers. If he wants Lou Yuan to take the initiative to touch him he couldn’t rely on his identity or disguise.
He should use his value to make Lou Yuan notice him so that he has room for further action.
Shi Lingxi is serious and frank, he seemed to be a special species in the apocalypse. At least he made Lou Yuan feel special. In addition to a strong offensive power, Lou Yuan has the ability to monitor others and discriminate between truths and lies.
He and Shi Lingxi had talked for some time, Shi Lingxi showed no concealment or ambiguity, did not lie even once. It seemed like…Shi Lingxi wanted to please him?
When it turned dark, Xiong Kun was about to ask the staff to bring in electric lamps but Lou Yuan stopped him, “This is enough for today, you get some rest.”
Lou Yuan’s attitude towards Shi Lingxi was somewhat milder, he glanced at Shi Lingxi and was about to leave. However, he found that Shi Lingxi grabbed his backpack and notebook and followed him.
“Do I have to finish recounting before I get to ask you more questions?” Shi Lingxi’s three-year experience is too long. If he keeps going on like this, the task deadline would have already passed by the time he’s done.
“What questions do you want to ask me?” Lou Yuan turned around, he was more than a head taller than Shi Lingxi. Considering Shi Lingxi’s age and experience his tone became gentler, but it was impossible for anyone to detect this gentleness.
“What animals do you like?” Shi Lingxi looked up and asked Lou Yuan seriously.
If the person is a younger generation, Lou Yuan might have an impulse to rub their hair, for example like his deceased grandfather. Otherwise, if the person appears to be cute, it will also give people an urge to touch their heads.
Shi Lingxi felt that since he had no blood relation with Lou Yuan, he could only sell meng so that Lou Yuan would touch him.
This was one of those rare occasions when Lou Yuan became speechless. Shi Lingxi first asked him what color he liked, then asked him about his favorite animal. Did Shi Lingxi have some strange hobbies?
Or is this little guy trying to please him?
But Shi Lingxi’s flattering skills were definitely not polished. It seemed like he was holding a huge signboard above his head which said: “ I’m trying to please you!”. No, it can’t be said to be flattering, Shi Lingxi must be very fond of him.
Lou Yuan’s brain had already taken many detours to justify Shi Lingxi’s abnormal behavior. He coughed, his momentum did not diminish. Lou Yuan thought carefully and shook his head “ I don’t have anything particular I like…”
When he answered that he felt the obvious disappointment in Shi Lingxi’s eyes. It made him feel like he had gone too far. Shi Lingxi carefully answered his question in detail but even though what he said was true it seemed perfunctory.
Lou Yuan was embarrassed, he raised his hand and stroked Shi Lingxi’s hair gently “I didn’t lie to you, I’ll tell you later after I think about it.”
Three years ago, because of his negligence, Shi Lingxi suffered a lot. After confirming his identity, Lou Yuan consciously regarded the other as someone he needed to look after and compensate.
“System A236 congratulates the host for completing the novice task. The novice gift package has been obtained. The mainline mission is now open. Please keep up the good work!”
Lou Yuan’s words and the system’s words almost overlapped. Shi Lingxi was confused and could not react, from no hope to suddenly completing the task, this surprise is not small.
A gust of wind blew, Shi Lingxi lowered his head, his eyes were misty. He reached over and gently grabbed Lou Yuan’s sleeve “ You… You are such a good man!”
Without even dyeing his hair or wearing fake ears Lou Yuan took the initiative to touch him. If this is not the sign of a good person, then what is?
Shi Lingxi’s words were totally sincere and he appeared to be really moved. He carried his backpack and ran some distance before turning back and waving at Lou Yuan. When he reached the corner of the camp, he waved again. His excitement and longing were clearly displayed on his face.
Xiong Kun scratched his head. He went to Lou Yuan and asked doubtfully “Did the boss get a good man card?”
He did not understand this development at all. What did his family’s boss do to receive a good man card? Surely this isn’t because of touching his head?
Xiong Kun denied this possibility and continued to look at Lou Yuan with a blank face.
Lou Yuan, who has always been willing to give answers to his subordinates, glanced at Xiong Kun. He walked to his room and asked, “Where does he live? Arrange for him to live in the camp.”
“Yes!” Although Xiong Kun was still confused, he never hesitated to obey Lou yuan. He gave a military salute, walked away to carry out orders. He thought for a long time and then finally arranged Shi Lingxi’s room on the same floor as Lou Yuan.
“This was the boss’s peach blossom, I was so stupid.” It is rare for his boss to not be offended by those who are fond of him. As a good younger brother he must lend a hand.
Shi Lingxi returned to the place he woke up before and soon enough he was told that a new residence had been arranged for him. Shi Lingxi did not refuse, but also politely and happily expressed his gratitude.
The town is not safe at night, not only zombies or animals but also some ferocious people will choose to fight at night. With all kinds of powers roaming about, even if you don’t go out it may turn out to be dangerous to stay at home. Shi Lingxi felt that the crisis had not passed. The fact that he is still alive should be unknown to his former teammates. Shi Lingxi couldn’t guarantee that they would sit still if they knew he’s back.
Undoubtedly the closer he is to Lou Yuan the safer it will be. Shilingxi’s way of thinking is somewhat different from that of ordinary people, but he is rational in matters related to his own safety.
“236, redeem the novice gift bag” Shi Lingxi felt that he and the system had gotten closer, so it more convenient first name directly. A is the last name, 236 is the first name or the name Shi Lingxi prefers.
“The host completed the novice mission within 6 hours and received A level effort buff bonus and A level novice gift bag. There is a 100% probability of dropping A level rewards and a 10% probability of dropping S level rewards.”
Items dropped: 5 A level ability enhancement candy (orange flavor), 4 A level defense candy (Ice-cream flavor), 1 S level lucky buff candy (strawberry flavor).
Shi Lingxi’s eyes glowed when he saw those sweets with various flavors. He opened his palm and waited for the system to give him the gift package but obviously the system hadn’t finished.
“Show love mainline task is open. The host receives 1 cubic meter portable space. Non-upgradable. Please use it carefully.”
Shi Lingxi became giddy once again. Even if the space is small and can’t be upgraded, it is also a space. It’s more than enough to carry food and water for his use.
“The novice gift package has been placed in the portable space. The system requests the host to check it.”
Shi Lingxi’s eyes narrowed slightly, he opened his palm and saw a vermillion mole. This mole is his connection with the portable space. He couldn’t help but drool when he saw the 10 different candies placed in the storage. He shook his head. Right now, he wasn’t short of food. He ought to save them up for a more critical time.
In addition to restraining his appetite, he also restrained his research spirit which is deeply rooted in his bones. Perhaps after figuring out the ingredients, he could mass-produce them?
“System A236 reminds the host that suitable substitutes for candy materials cannot be found on earth. Also, the candy formula is super rare level, and the host’s authority is insufficient.”
If A236 was smarter it would definitely ridicule Shi Lingxi’s eccentric brain circuits. How can you dare to think like this? Do you think it’s possible to dismantle it and then mass produce it? How stupid!
Shi Lingxi did not respond to the system, he stared at his hand reluctantly. After some time he clenched his right hand into a fist and walked towards the room arranged by Xiong Kun. It was larger and cleaner than the place he lived before.
He did not rest immediately after he entered the room. He walked around and checked the room habitually. Then he switched on the small desk lamp, took out his notebook and began to make some observations.
Shi Lingxi didn’t know that his every move was under Lou Yuan’s mental perception range. Even if he frowns, Lou Yuan could detect it. But it did not reach the point of staring all the time, when Shi Lingxi went to the bathroom Lou Yuan withdrew his mental strength.
For Lou Yuan, his perception is a habit. If necessary even if it was before the apocalypse he would let people do an appropriate investigation or follow-ups on Shi Lingxi. Xiong Kun arranged someone in a close range, so he decided to do it himself.
He’s an S level psychic power who is more than capable of multitasking so this doesn’t affect his other duties. Xiong Kun, Lang mu, Chen Yun, Dong Shan and some of his subordinates came into his room.
