Chapter 89.2 – The Beginning of the Journey
Lu Bafang looked confused: “What are you talking about? Why don’t I know what happened last time?”
Wang Yu took a sip of water: “You really missed a lot.”
Shi Yuan replied to Wang Yu: “No. I want to go out of the city with General Lu and find the Empire.”
Lu Bafang was even more confused: “Wha, wha, what? Why do you want you to go together? What did I miss?”
Shi Yuan thought for a while.
He didn’t want to lie anymore, but he understood that the timing was sensitive now, and he had to be cautious about his identity.
He selectively told the truth: “I am an accompanying family member.”
The two of them were stunned.
Wang Yu murmured: “Unexpectedly, General Lu and you seem to be glued together!”
“Look at what you’re saying, the two of them are so in love, how can they bear to be separated?” Lu Bafang recalled that Lu Tinghan looked at him with interest that day, and still had lingering fears, “You will have to go for several months, right?”
Shi Yuan: “Hmm.”
He took a sip of corn soup. The soup was made of powder and did not taste very good, but he did not dislike it.
Wang Yu said: “There will be a lot of monsters on the road, which is very dangerous… However, since General Lu decided to go, he must be sure, so I won’t harp on it.”
“Also.” Lu Bafang took a bite of rice, “Anyway, I wish you a smooth journey! To find the Empire quickly and go home quickly. Hum, they all say that the golden nest and the silver nest are not as good as your own dog’s nest!” He raised the glass, “There is no wine, only water, so I can only cheer for you like this!”
The three of them clashed their glasses together with a crisp sound.
“Have a nice trip!”
The next day, Shi Yuan went to meet with people from the troupe.
Qin Luoluo and Cheng Youwen were rescued by Shi Yuan, and they both understood that there was something hidden in him, and there was a high probability of him not being a human.
Taking advantage of Wolfgang’s absence, Qin Luoluo secretly asked Shi Yuan: “Can you scare away the monsters along the way? Just like the time you saved us.”
Cheng Youwen added: “Use your magical tail.”
“It should be possible,” Shi Yuan said, “As long as there are not many people, I can scare away monsters.”
“Then I’m relieved,” Qin Luoluo said, “At least you and General Lu will not be in danger.”
“You still have to be careful,” Cheng Youwen emphasized, “Who knows what you will encounter? It’s been a long time since we have been to such a far place. If you really find the Empire, be careful, it’s been so many years, who knows what they have become.”
Shi Yuan agreed.
After two minutes, Wolfgang came.
After he joined the army, his skin became darker and he became thinner, with several scars on his hands, which looked as hideous as a centipede.
He remained silent as always, only sitting in the corner and listening to the conversation between the three of them silently, showing a friendly smile from time to time, and nodding in agreement.
At the end, Qin Luoluo took a long breath and leaned against the back of her chair: “The last time we ate together like this, it felt like a lifetime ago.”
“It’s been a few years, isn’t it?” Cheng Youwen said, “I don’t know what happened to the theater. It must have been occupied by those infected flowers.” He hummed, “My lovely office, ah, just gave it away!”
“Lovely? It’s so messy like a doghouse!” Qin Luluo scolded with laughter.
Cheng Youwen glared, and was just about to retort when he heard Wolfgang speak, “…s.”
“What?” Shi Yuan asked, “What did you say?”
“I said, one day we can act,” Wolfgang said.
Everyone waited for his next uplifting words, or at least an emotional one, but Wolfgang buried his head and continued to eat, without any further words.
—He really just wanted to say such a sentence.
This was very much like Wolfgang.
When parting, the members of the troupe said to Shi Yuan, “We are all waiting for you, come back early!”
Shi Yuan contacted Lin Yeran, but unfortunately, Lin Yeran was too busy processing data to take time, so he just texted him and said: [I’m rooting for you]
After thinking about it, Lin Yeran added: [If there’s a chance, I will give you a bonus]
—This was unprecedented for him.
Shi Yuan also went to see Alice.
Alice still hadn’t found Leonard Philippa, sitting on a bench with a unicorn in her arms, her bare feet dangling.
She blinked and said, “Shi Yuan, I wish you a pleasant journey.”
“Thank you.” Shi Yuan told her, “When I come back, I will continue to look for your brother.”
Alice curved her green eyes with a smile.
And so, the time came on the third day, and they were ready to set off.
The aircraft was the most advanced D3-201 model, with medium size and excellent speed.
It was equipped with heavy firepower weapons, and at the same time, loaded with food, fuel, a large number of inhibitors, all kinds of firearms and ammunition, pollution detectors, signal transmitters, and a combat off-road vehicle for ground use.
There were a total of 5 personnel, Lu Tinghan, Shi Yuan, Adjutant Bing, as well as an engineer, and a medical staff. Except for Shi Yuan, they all knew how to fly aircraft and can guarantee shifts.
They set off in the early hours of the morning.
It was still too early, the sky had not yet dawned, the city had not yet woken up, and naturally there were no crowds to see them off.
The aircraft took off and flew straight to the west, which was the coordinates of the Empire.
Shi Yuan saw that the main city outside the window was getting smaller and smaller, and on the streets, there were only soldiers who got up early to patrol. There were black crystals everywhere, they were like continuous and sharp mountains, covering most of the city and freezing countless monsters.
He looked down, and suddenly his gaze stopped.
At the end of the street, on the top of a watchtower, someone was waving, waving at them.
The distance was too far away, Shi Yuan couldn’t see who it was, and he couldn’t even tell if it was a man or a woman. He could only see the person waving constantly, jumping and waving to see them off.
Knowing that the person could not see it, Shi Yuan waved at the window as well.
“We will be back soon,” he said.
He stayed by the window.
Until the city was no longer visible.
There were three rooms on the aircraft, one for Shi Yuan and Lu Tinghan, one for Adjutant Bing, and one for the engineer and the doctor. There was not much space in the room, and a bed and a small table were enough to fill it.
Shi Yuan stayed by the window for a while, and prepared to go back to the room to unpack his bags.
This was the first day of the journey, and there must be a good start.
As soon as he opened the door: “Lu Tinghan, I—huh?”
“Tap!” Something hit him lightly on the head, exactly, precisely, right in the middle of his head.
Before Shi Yuan could react, he saw Lu Tinghan sitting on the edge of the bed, with his right hand in a motion of throwing something — Lu Tinghan froze, it was hard to describe what kind of expression he had, surprised, cramped, uneasy, and even a little panicked.
Lu Tinghan said slowly: “… Shi Yuan, it’s not what it looks like.”
Shi Yuan: ?
He shook his head, and the thing on his head rolled down to his palm.
It was a ball of crumpled waste paper.
A ball of garbage.
Shi Yuan’s pupils trembled.
