Chapter 137: Possessing a Lv. 10 Expert
At 8 a.m. on January 6, 2082, in Xu Jingming’s residence in Mingyue City, a large, almost triangular aircraft hovered above the courtyard. Light enveloped the surroundings as the hatch opened, and a metal staircase descended into the courtyard.
Xu Jingming and Li Miaomiao were already waiting in the courtyard.
“Hello, Xu Jingming.” Three people walked down from the metal, and the uniformed man in the lead said, “Please follow us to Binhai. Director Zhou is also waiting for you there.”
“Alright.” Xu Jingming nodded. He knew these three people; they were the ones who followed Director Zhou when he picked him up last time.
“Miaomiao, I’ll make a trip to Binhai first. I might take a day or two before coming back,” Xu Jingming said and hugged his wife.
Li Miaomiao whispered into her husband’s ear, “Don’t worry about home. Go to Binhai in peace.”
Although she didn’t know the details of his trip to Binhai, she knew that it had something to do with the resources he had exchanged for. Her husband was making a trip to receive the resources.
The couple separated, and Xu Jingming went up the stairs and boarded the aircraft with the three uniformed men.
Soon, the aircraft retracted the stairs, and the light dissipated. The aircraft then quickly rose into the air and flew south.
Binhai, in one of the Life Evolution Bureau’s bases.
The aircraft slowly landed on a huge lawn. Xu Jingming walked out of the hatch and saw Director Zhou waiting in the distance.
“Jingming.” Director Zhou smiled and waved.
Xu Jingming immediately walked over. “Director Zhou.”
“Follow me.” Director Zhou brought Xu Jingming in. It was the same path as last time, and Xu Jingming was already quite familiar with it.
“You did well this time,” Director Zhou said with a smile. “Having your overall score be first in the world gained you 100 contribution points. The resources you exchanged for were also provided by the Earth Alliance. For example, China provided your resources last time, so the burden was relatively high. It’s much easier this time.”
Xu Jingming understood.
Every country had a huge amount of wealth and resources, and the Earth Alliance could also mobilize a large amount of wealth and resources. And now… Be it the entire Earth Alliance or the countries, they all had a common goal—to nurture higher-level evolvers.
“The resources I chose were also a decision I made after careful consideration,” Xu Jingming said. “Is there anything wrong? Director Zhou, can you give me some pointers?”
“Your choices are quite good,” Director Zhou said with a smile and a relaxed tone. “Moreover, you’re still in your growth phase. Even if you encounter some setbacks in your growth phase, it’s a good thing.”
Xu Jingming nodded in understanding.
He could sense that the officials were more inclined to let them do as they pleased, allowing them to work hard on their own. Regardless of whether they advanced by leaps and bounds or found themselves on a collision course with failure, they allowed Xu Jingming and the others to fumble their way forward.
Perhaps, from the officials’ point of view, this method was more suitable for nurturing experts?
“You exchanged for three items,” Director Zhou said. “I’ve already prepared the A-grade Mental Tempering Crystal; you can just bring it with you when you return to Mingyue City. As for the Lv. 8 spearmanship legacy, which is also the first volume of ‘Beam Transformation,’ it will be sent to your personal space in the virtual world later. When that happens, you can study it carefully in your personal space. However, there’s one thing… You mustn’t spread it!”
Xu Jingming looked at Director Zhou.
Director Zhou smiled. “After all, our Earth Alliance only bought one copy of the first volume of ‘Beam Transformation,’ so only you can learn it.”
“Is spreading it considered a violation?” Xu Jingming asked.
“Just don’t spread it.” Director Zhou didn’t elaborate. Although he didn’t keep it completely secret from the latter because it wouldn’t be long before Xu Jingming and the others completely came into contact with the truth, it wasn’t the time to talk about it in detail.
Director Zhou brought Xu Jingming to the familiar secret space.
In the secret space, the huge floating sphere opened a door and lowered the stairs.
“Of the three resources, only the possession of a Lv. 10 expert requires you to connect to the virtual world network,” Director Zhou said. “Quickly enter.”
Xu Jingming nodded and walked down the stairs into the floating sphere.
After entering the sphere, the stairs were retracted, and the door closed.
The interior of the sealed sphere was smooth, lit up by a glow. It enveloped Xu Jingming, who was standing in the middle.
Xu Jingming was very calm; he had already gained experience from the first round.
“Do you want to enter the virtual world?” A voice sounded in Xu Jingming’s mind.
“Connect,” Xu Jingming said.
Xu Jingming’s consciousness immediately sank, and he quickly entered a virtual world.
“Hello, Xu Jingming,” a beautiful woman appeared and said with a smile. “You chose to possess a Lv. 10 expert, Ambro. Please experience it carefully and seize this precious opportunity.”
Xu Jingming nodded calmly.
“Earth civilization requests permission to connect to the virtual world network.”
“Requesting to learn.”
“Requesting to possess Ambro.”
Voices sounded in Xu Jingming’s ears, causing him to turn solemn. With the last voice—”Begin possession!”
Xu Jingming’s consciousness entered a vast world.
This is? Xu Jingming’s consciousness saw a bustling planet. Space shuttles traveled back and forth on the planet, and the beautiful cities and nature combined perfectly like works of art.
In an exquisite building in one of the cities, many people sat in twos and threes. They read and drank some beverages.
They all looked different, with all kinds of skin colors. Some had pointed ears, round ears, and long ears. Some people were hairless, with bald, purple skin, while others had fur on their faces. The tallest was more than five meters tall, and the shortest was less than half a meter tall.
However, they generally looked human, and everyone got along very well.
Huh? Xu Jingming couldn’t help but look at one of them.
This person wore a loose robe and sat on a chair in a very relaxed position. He leisurely read the book in front of him and had a beverage beside him.
This person’s appearance was quite similar to that of a human on Earth, but his hair and eyebrows were red. His eyes were gentle, and by Earth’s standards, he could be considered quite handsome.
Xu Jingming’s consciousness quickly plummeted and fused into the person’s body.
The moment he fused, Xu Jingming also realized how powerful this person was.
What a terrifying body. Xu Jingming was secretly dumbfounded. Although it’s inferior to Xuan, it’s still extremely terrifying. As long as I’m willing, I can completely shatter the planet under my feet with a single punch.
At this moment, Ambro was reading a book, immersed in it, and occasionally flipping through it.
Xu Jingming also looked at the book; the dense text and symbols were akin to Greek! He couldn’t understand them, which meant that Ambro didn’t plan on letting the ‘possessor’ understand them.
“I never expected the president of the Black Wing Society to stay on a tourist planet for more than a thousand years.” A thin and tall elder appeared from thin air and walked over step by step. Nobody in the area could see him.
Ambro frowned slightly and looked up at the thin elder.. “What are you doing here?”
