Chapter 10 – I’ll wait for you on a spring day

Chapter 10 – Years later.


“Mr. Song, there are so many letters in your bookcase, are they all from your fans?” The assistant helped Song Zexu tidy up the bookcase next to the desk in the bedroom. 


He was a little dumbfounded by the amount of letters Song Zexu received, it must be too much.


“Yeah, my fans are very cute. They write me letters very seriously and I will occasionally read the letters when I’m taking a break.” Song Zexu explained.


He opened the closet. He planned to move recently and wanted to pack up all the things that were going to be moved to his new home.


He has had a very full work schedule in the past two years and he hasn’t been home for a long time. Most of the clothes in the closet were worn by him before. He was going to take only a few and leave the rest.


When he was picking up a piece of clothing that was hanging on the inside, he suddenly found that there seemed to be something in the pocket. He reached into the pocket and took the item out.


It was a rose red envelope with some dried flowers on the edge, but it seemed that the flowers had been left for too long and it was cracked.


Song Zexu felt that the envelope was made very special and he was a little interested, so he opened it to look inside.


The letter paper was a little yellow, but he read the beginning first.


[To Song Zexu: After I wait for you to open this letter, I don’t know if you will still remember me. My name is Li Chou. I saved you after you were injured in Yunzhen…]


Song Zexu tried his best to search for this person named Li Chou in his mind and he seemed to have a little memory of when he was injured. There seemed to be a person named Li Chou who

saved him, but he was blind at the time and couldn’t see, so he didn’t have too deep a memory.


Song Zexu continued to read and found that this was actually a confession letter.


Li Chou wrote how excited he was when he rescued Song Zexu and how much he liked him.


At the end of the letter, Li Chou even wrote a sentence.


[I’ll love you forever.]


It’s a very simple confession letter, but Song Zexu doesn’t know why he thinks this letter is heavy, maybe it’s because it was from a person who had a long crush on him.


Song Zexu suddenly thought about it. It seemed that he had forgotten to contact him again. He only wanted to ask his agent to give him some money as thanks.


However, for some reason, Song Zexu wanted to see him again, this man who secretly loved him.


The next day, Song Zexu drove to Yunzhen.


He vaguely remembered that Li Chou’s apartment was in front of a park, but he couldn’t find it after searching for a long time. Later, he saw a flower shop.


He went in and asked the boss: “Hello, do you know a man named Li Chou?”


The owner of the flower shop was a woman. When she heard Li Chou’s name, she raised her head from the bar and looked at Song Zexu, and asked, “How do you know Li Chou’s name?”


Song Zexu didn’t know how to describe his relationship with Li Chou. After thinking about it for a while, he felt that he could be called his savior, so he said: “He saved me. “


Upon hearing this, the woman sneered, “That’s right. Li Chou loves saving people so much, it  even took his own life.”


She looked at Song Zexu and said, “You are late. Li Chou has been dead for several years, after he was swept away by the sea to save a child. Not even a dead body was recovered.”


She touched her daughter beside her again and muttered in a low voice, “You didn’t even get to look at your goddaughter.”


Song Zexu was taken aback. He didn’t expect such a big change. He opened his mouth, but was unable to speak for a while.


The woman seemed to feel that he looked familiar. She looked at him carefully and suddenly asked, “Are you Song Zexu?”


Song Zexu let out an “ah” without denying it.


The woman took out a diary from the drawer of the bar, handed it to Song Zexu and said, “Although I know you may not care about a secret long-time crush, I still hope you can take a look at what Li Chou left behind.”


Song Zexu took it and found that it was Li Chou’s diary.


He read it and every time he read it, he felt a little shocked. At the beginning, Li Chou did not reveal about his own crush, only relying on watching some interviews or variety shows to see how he was doing. After that, he went to some filming locations to meet him before later accidentally rescuing him.


Li Chou wrote a sentence on the title page of his diary.


[Some people fall into the abyss but cannot wait for their savior]


In Li Chou’s unfinished diary, he hoped that Song Zexu could watch the sunset sea at least once. Song Zexu’s eyes were hot when he looked at that page.


He has never had a crush on anyone and he doesn’t know what it’s like to have a crush on someone. It’s just that he’s a little sad now that someone had loved him fervently.


He asked the woman, “May I ask how to get to the Sunset Sea?”


The woman looked at him and gave him directions.


Ten minutes later, Song Zexu arrived at the Sunset Sea. He remembered that he had been lying on that reef to watch the sea with Li Chou, but he hadn’t had this feeling before.


Now looking at the sunset sea, he really felt that this sea is beautiful.


Song Zexu sat on the reef, looking at the sea under the setting sun. The sun was shining brightly on the sea, Song Zexu seemed to see Li Chou sitting next to him as he spoke: “Look, I didn’t lie to you, the sunset over the sea is super beautiful.”


The sun was dazzling and Song Zexu couldn’t see Li Chou’s face clearly, but he thought he must be very good-looking, his smile was like a spring breeze blowing over the waves of the sea. He suddenly started to sing Li Chou’s favorite song “Spring”.


Finally, he said to Li Chou, “Yes, it’s so beautiful.”


Unfortunately, you will never see it again.


[Selling flowers in this life, to be beautiful in the next one]


I’ll be waiting for you in spring.

Chapter 30 – Replica

Chapter 30: The Mermaid


Tan Xilu once had a conflict with his mother over one thing, their choice of college majors after the college entrance examination. Initially, Tan Xilu’s first choice was not a teaching degree; he wanted to study veterinary medicine.


When Tan Xilu was in junior high school, he found a stray cat named Ah Miao. When he brought Ah Miao home, it was lively, running around everywhere, which was quite different from Tan Xilu’s reserved personality at the time. Ah Miao had caused quite a bit of chaos at home during the first week, breaking numerous vases. Tan’s mother was furious and even thought about throwing Ah Miao out. However, she couldn’t bear to separate them when she realized that Ah Miao was the only companion Tan Xilu had. Fortunately, Ah Miao became less rambunctious over time and even started catching mice in the house.


Ah Miao stayed with Tan Xilu until his senior year in high school. Tan Xilu’s career direction had been decided long ago by his parents – he would major in teaching for a stable job and an easier time finding a partner. Tan Xilu had the same thoughts, but in that year, Ah Miao fell ill.


When he found Ah Miao, the cat was already six or seven years old. While it was lively when he first brought it home, it had clearly aged by the time Tan Xilu entered high school. Normally, when Tan Xilu came home in the evening, Ah Miao would excitedly grab his pant leg and try to jump on him. But one day, when Tan Xilu returned, he saw Ah Miao slowly limping towards him. At that moment, Tan Xilu felt like something precious was slipping away from his grasp.


As it turned out, that was indeed the case. Ah Miao grew weaker day by day, and by the time Tan Xilu entered his senior year, Ah Miao sometimes wouldn’t even be waiting at the door. Still, Tan Xilu would first go and stroke Ah Miao’s fur when he came home every day.


One day, when he returned home, he went to find Ah Miao as usual but couldn’t locate him. Even someone as composed as Tan Xilu panicked. He searched all around the neighborhood, going to places Ah Miao might have gone. It wasn’t until seven or eight in the evening that he received a call from his father, who said that Ah Miao had been found, but the situation didn’t look good.


Tan Xilu rushed to the pet hospital. The driver who had hit Ah Miao explained that the cat had suddenly darted in front of his car, and he couldn’t avoid the collision. Ah Miao appeared in bad shape, lying on a small operating table, barely breathing.


When the doctor came out, he shook his head and said apologetically, “I’m sorry, we did our best, but the cat’s liver damage was too severe.”


Tan Xilu rarely shed tears. When he was a child, crying would result in his nanny withholding food, so despite the hardships and sadness he faced later in life, he refrained from crying. However, at that moment, he couldn’t hold back. He hid in his father’s embrace and cried quietly, tears soaking his father’s shirt. His father had never seen his son so devastated.


What no one had expected was that on the second day after being declared critically ill, Ah Miao escaped from the pet hospital, despite its painful condition. Perhaps it knew its time was running out and didn’t want to cause grief to the one who loved it. Ah Miao limped away from the entrance of the pet hospital and Tan Xilu never found it again.


Afterwards, Tan Xilu dreamt countless times that Ah Miao was in some hidden corner, licking its wounds to console itself, and patiently awaiting death.


It was this experience that led Tan Xilu to choose a major in veterinary medicine, and for this, he had many arguments with his mother.


Tan’s mother knew what was always bothering Tan Xilu – why couldn’t he save Ah Miao? Ah Miao still had some life left, and it could have lived for several more days, but it chose to leave on its own. She understood that Tan Xilu was tormented by this thought.


Despite her constant efforts to console him, Tan Xilu was determined to pursue veterinary medicine. What ultimately changed his mind was a remark from his father. He said, “On the day Ah Miao was on the operating table, you cried and wet my shirt. What if you’re the one performing surgery on a small animal on that table? Will you cry then? Who will you turn to for comfort?”


Tan Xilu was always a timid person. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have refrained from hinting to his parents when the nanny mistreated him, even if it meant giving away some clues. They would have noticed that something was wrong with Tan Xilu, despite being inadequate parents. Tan Xilu didn’t know how to protect himself.


So, in the end, Tan Xilu compromised and applied for a teaching degree.


Tan Xilu stood by the bed and called out softly, “Mom.” His mother, with her back turned, remained wrapped in the blankets, motionless.


“Mom,” Tan Xilu walked to the other side of the bed and called out again.


His mother had originally had her eyes open, but she closed them when she saw Tan Xilu approaching.


Tan Xilu crouched by the bedside, reached into the blankets, and held his mother’s hand. Due to years of holding a pen, there was a thick callus on his mother’s middle finger. When he was a child, Tan Xilu thought this callus was unsightly, but he didn’t realize that he would have one too when he grew up. Now, he understood that this callus was a mark of honor for a teacher.


He rubbed his mother’s palm and coaxed her, saying, “Mom, please don’t be angry. Can you open your eyes and look at me?”


His mother withdrew her hand from his grasp and didn’t open her eyes. She only said, “Then break up with him.”


Tan Xilu suddenly froze in place.


“Mom…please don’t do this,” Tan Xilu bit his lip, his voice starting to tremble, “I…I really can’t live without him.”


His mother opened her eyes, sat up, and stared at Tan Xilu, saying emotionally, “Why can’t you live without him? Wasn’t everything fine before he came back? Didn’t you say you wanted to live well? Why can’t you live without him? Xiao Lu, what’s wrong with you? It’s been seven years; if he wanted to find you, he could have come back a long time ago! Why did he come back now?”


A barrage of questions overwhelmed Tan Xilu, and he didn’t know which one to answer. In the end, he could only call out, “Mom.”


His mother, looking at her obedient and seemingly content child, moved her lips but didn’t respond.


What went wrong? Why couldn’t Tan Xilu be with anyone other than Xu Huaiming? He had clearly moved on, and things were finally getting better. Why did Xu Huaiming have to come back and take her beloved son away?


Sometimes, Tan’s mother would wonder if she had made a mistake by spoiling Tan Xilu so much back then. Maybe she should have taken the initiative, gone to see the man who had stolen her son’s heart when Tan Xilu was in love. Instead of following Tan Xilu’s wishes, she should have found out who that man was and prevented Tan Xilu from experiencing such heartbreak.


She also regretted being too busy with work at that time, not having time to take care of the young Tan Xilu. It allowed the wicked nanny to mistreat him. So, when Tan Xilu, covered in wounds, found solace in someone’s embrace, he obediently followed them. But the cost was too high, and she didn’t want to see Tan Xilu hurt again. He was her flesh and blood, and she couldn’t bear to see him in pain.


“Xiao Lu, can you please listen to Mom? Can you make Mom happy and break up with Xu Huaiming?” Her voice choked, “I’m begging you. During those years when you almost couldn’t make it, I was suffering too. I even thought that if you couldn’t make it, I would go with you. Fortunately, you only stepped one foot into the abyss, and you managed to come out on your own. But Mom really can’t bear to see you jump back in. I can’t take it, Xiao Lu.”


“Xiao Lu, please, can you and Xu Huaiming break up? Mom is really begging you.”

Chapter 29 – Replica

Chapter 29: Orchid Pavilion 


Tan Xilu rarely cooked, and before Xu Huaiming returned home, the refrigerator was mostly filled with various instant foods or pre-cooked meals made by Tan’s mother. Due to the nature of his work, he could usually have breakfast and lunch at school, so he often made do with something simple for dinner.


However, Tan Xilu’s culinary skills were not particularly great. There was one time when there was only a bag of instant noodles left at home, and he reluctantly tried to cook it when he was really hungry. In the end, the noodles turned out half-cooked and inedible, so he threw them into the trash can and went to ask his neighbor Lin Changyu for some help.


But today, he had a sudden urge to make something for Xu Huaiming. He knew that Xu Huaiming was quite picky when it came to food. In the end, he chose to make egg drop soup, which was the easiest dish to prepare.


He peeled and diced tomatoes, sautéed them until they were soft, added water to bring it to a boil, and mixed flour with warm water, stirring constantly. Once it started bubbling, he poured in beaten eggs and finally sprinkled in the seasonings.


Tan Xilu served a bowl to Xu Huaiming, watching him take the first sip with eager anticipation. “How is it? Does it taste good?” he asked.


Before Xu Huaiming could answer, Tan Xilu proudly declared, “It must be delicious. I followed the recipe step by step.”


Xu Huaiming paused, pushed the bowl towards Tan Xilu, smiled, and said, “I think it’s not bad. You can try it.”


“Really?” Tan Xilu scooped up a spoonful, but as soon as it touched his mouth, he immediately rushed to the trash can and spat it out. His face contorted, and he exclaimed, “Why is it so awful? I followed the recipe exactly!”


Tan Xilu was a bit annoyed. It was all a lie, and he rushed to the bathroom to rinse his mouth.


“It’s okay, I can handle it,” Xu Huaiming said, moving the bowl back in front of himself and eating it without changing his expression, even though it was genuinely terrible.


In reality, it was really bad. Xu Huaiming could taste sourness, sweetness, saltiness, and bitterness all in one bowl of soup. Moreover, because he was an AI, his senses were more sensitive than a human’s, so you can imagine how much of a shock his taste buds had received.


But being able to eat a meal prepared by Tan Xilu was a rare treat for Xu Huaiming.


Seeing that the bowl was almost empty, Tan Xilu, who had come out of the bathroom and noticed Xu Huaiming still eating, hesitated for a moment, then hurriedly moved the bowl away, saying, “It’s too awful, don’t eat it.”


“It’s fine,” Xu Huaiming said with a serious expression, as if the taste was actually good.


Tan Xilu knew that Xu Huaiming was encouraging him, but it really was terrible. He had to admit that he had no talent for cooking.


He waved his hand and said, “You should cook from now on to avoid wasting food.”


Xu Huaiming smiled, reached out, and pinched Tan Xilu’s cheek, saying, “As long as you want, I can cook for you for a lifetime. The choice is yours.”


Upon hearing this, Tan Xilu was momentarily surprised. After a moment, he smiled and approached Xu Huaiming, their foreheads touching. He said, “What should I do? It seems I can’t be without you.”


Xu Huaiming’s heart skipped a beat. He raised his hand, hugged Tan Xilu’s waist, and carried him into the bedroom. He kicked the door shut with his foot, and as soon as Tan Xilu’s back touched the bedsheet, he said to Tan Xilu, “Then I’ll never leave you.”


So Tan Xilu kissed Xu Huaiming, allowing him to take the lead.


Perhaps Tan Xilu thought that this was just a commonplace phrase said in the bedroom, or maybe it was something Xu Huaiming said to appease him in response to a certain question. After all, who could guarantee never leaving someone for a lifetime?


But Xu Huaiming was different. He truly could never leave Tan Xilu, and he would stay by his side forever.


However, before Tan Xilu knew that Xu Huaiming was an AI, he would never have believed it.


This time, Xu Huaiming didn’t tease Tan Xilu much. After two rounds, he stopped and carried Tan Xilu into the bathroom to give him a bath. Tan Xilu rested his chin on Xu Huaiming’s shoulder and was already a bit dazed. He occasionally kissed Xu Huaiming’s chin and then became a little drowsy.


Afraid that he might slip in the bathtub, Xu Huaiming held him carefully. When he finished washing him thoroughly and lifted him out of the bathtub, Xu Huaiming suddenly heard Tan Xilu mutter something in his sleep.


He couldn’t hear it clearly, so he listened carefully and heard Tan Xilu say, “Xu Huaiming, don’t be afraid to meet my mother. She’ll definitely like you.”


Xu Huaiming’s heart suddenly softened. He really wanted to kiss Tan Xilu, and in fact, he did.


He decided not to think too much. After all, Tan Xilu was his now. Whether he was a replica of Code no.7 or not, only he could kiss Tan Xilu, only he could be with Tan Xilu without any reservations in bed, and only he could hear Tan Xilu say, “I love you.”


That was enough.


He was like barren soil, and as long as it received a little drop of rain, he could be reborn.


When Tan Xilu went home on the weekend, he didn’t bring Xu Huaiming with him. It would have been too presumptuous to bring him back when his mother was still upset. Tan Xilu’s mother had a strong temperament, and when she dug in her heels, she was truly stubborn. Tan Xilu knew her personality well and didn’t dare to be too impulsive.


He hadn’t been home for a long time. In recent years, his career had just stabilized, and his family’s home was quite far from the teacher’s college, so he had been living in the apartment he shared with Xu Huaiming. He only went home to visit during major holidays, and the last time he had been home was during the National Day holiday.


When Tan Xilu arrived at the entrance of the housing complex, he called his mother again. This time she didn’t answer the call.


Tan Xilu let out a sigh of relief, taking it as a sign that she might be willing to relent. He called his father and told him he had arrived at the gate. Soon, his father rushed out.


Before getting married, Tan’s father was a simple and honest man. When he reached the age to get married, he happened to meet Tan


‘s mother, who was four years younger. At the time, she was in the prime of her youth, with shallow dimples when she smiled. When Tan’s father saw her, he was immediately smitten and decided that he would only marry her.


However, Tan’s father was not very proactive, and he didn’t pursue her actively. If it hadn’t been for the fact that they happened to work on a project together, Tan’s mother might not have noticed him at all. She saw that he was serious about his work and was willing to help her with her questions. It was this academic connection that led to their relationship. People in academia often liked those who were stronger than themselves.


After marriage, Tan’s father became a classic example of a henpecked husband. He obeyed his wife in everything and had little say in matters. But he also doted on his wife, so over the years, they had few major conflicts. He always stood on Tan’s mother’s side. This time, he had high hopes for Tan Xilu.


After all, this son had the same personality as his mother—stubborn and determined. Once he set his mind on something, he would never let go. And with his son’s personality, it was likely that he would only have eyes for Xu Huaiming for the rest of his life.


Tan’s father patted his son’s head when they met, clicking his tongue and saying, “Looks like you’ve lost weight.”


“Where did you get that? I’ve been eating a lot lately,” Tan Xilu replied with a smile.


Father and son had not seen each other for a long time, so they exchanged pleasantries at the door for a while.


When Tan Xilu arrived, he had deliberately bought two boxes of snacks that his mother liked. They were quite heavy, and he carried them up to the fourth floor. When he reached the door, he was a little out of breath.


Tan’s father opened the door, and the house was quiet. Tan’s father carried the two boxes of snacks inside and said, “Your mother is in the bedroom. You can go in.”


“Okay,” Tan Xilu replied and asked, “Is she doing okay emotionally these past few days?”


“She’s fine. Your mother is like a tigress on the outside but a softie on the inside. She’s just afraid you’ll get the short end of the stick,” Tan’s father sighed. “I told her a few days ago that you were coming back, and she went out of her way to pickle some radishes that you like. She asked me to tell you to take them with you when you leave. Soften her up when you talk to her and maybe she’ll relent.”


Tan Xilu nodded and said, “I understand.”


He walked to the bedroom door, knocked, and got no response from inside. Finally, he called out, “Mom,” and then pushed the door open and walked in.

Chapter 63 – Who Says Omegas Can’t be as Explosive as Alphas

Chapter 63


Yan Hebin explained the process of the mech in great detail, leaving most of the audience in a state of bewilderment. Their minds were fixated on one thought. “Has the Imperial Navy University gone mad? Is this some kind of madness?”


It was no easy feat to achieve a military-grade mech, and even regular mech companies might struggle to develop such a masterpiece. Yet, the person standing on the stage right now was just a freshman!


However, if one paid close attention to the specific data presented during the briefing, they would notice that each parameter seemed to be overly perfect. If these data were true and valid, the value of this mech would likely surpass that of Thunder Technology University.


People exchanged glances, feeling like they had lost all judgment.


The crowd split into two factions.


“Is this for real? I heard there’s some rivalry between the Imperial Navy University’s Yu Zeyang and Wen Han. This display is probably just to prove a point!”


“What’s the point of proving anything? They’ve made big claims, but they’ll have to back it up later!”


“The Imperial Navy University is undoubtedly top-notch in military application, but their expertise lies more in combat. Thunder Research University is more well-rounded. I think it’s just a publicity stunt.”


“Didn’t you hear the data presented earlier? It’s incredibly impressive! It does seem to be on par with top-level mechs.”


“Presenters often exaggerate data during introductions. Let’s wait and see during the actual showcase.”


“To break the ninth-level difficulty, the mech operator must be exceptionally skilled. They might have an S-class Alpha pilot.”


“The Imperial Navy University has plenty of S-class pilots, but we don’t know who’s operating this time… Wait, an Omega?!”


As everyone was discussing, Yan Hebin had finished his introduction, and the focus shifted to the assessment site, showing the situation within the virtual exhibition platform.


Lu Jingning’s dazzling golden hair briefly flashed across everyone’s view, leaving a lasting impression that revealed his Omega identity.


The arena erupted once again.


After the initial surprise, someone couldn’t help but furrow their brows, “Doesn’t this Omega look familiar?”


His words caught the attention of others, but before they could delve deeper, the host switched the screen to a long shot of the mech in action.


The ninth-level difficulty assessment officially began. This level of challenge was rare to encounter. Regardless of whether this mech was qualified or not, it was still a spectacle worth watching.


In front of the mech appeared a thick, rare metal wall. Though its appearance seemed somewhat unremarkable, everyone knew the incredible strength of this rare metal. Leaving a mark on such a surface was nearly impossible for an ordinary mech.


At this moment, the Imperial Navy University’s mech stood in front of the towering wall, motionless. The crowd fell silent.


What was happening? Had they overstated their abilities? They seemed clueless about what to do next.


Meanwhile, inside the control room, Lu Jingning was indeed hesitating about how to begin. Not because he couldn’t achieve it, but rather, he was contemplating how to display his striking and charismatic persona.


This assessment tested the mech’s output intensity, and most operators would choose to use energy weapons to their limits. However, if he wanted to showcase something different and stand out, he needed to take a different approach.


After pondering for a moment, Lu Jingning’s lips curled up with a faint smile. He had an idea!


Amidst the anticipation of the audience, they watched as the mech remained motionless for a while. Suddenly, a dazzling halo of light appeared around its mechanical arm.


Finally, when everyone saw some movement, they were left even more dumbfounded.


What was this? An energy ring? But they weren’t using any weapons right now. Why were they gathering energy on their arm? Were they planning to break the wall barehanded?


Wait a minute! He’s doing it! He’s really doing it!


He’s really, bare-handedly, chiseling the wall?!!!


After equipping the protective energy ring on the mechanical arm, Lu Jingning didn’t need to worry about the impact on his mech. He swung his fist without any reservations.


Though they were in a virtual space, when his fist struck the rare metal wall, the sound wave was transmitted through the screen, causing everyone to cover their ears in pain. They couldn’t take their eyes off the screen, watching as the originally smooth metal wall was dented by the mech’s fist.


This was a thick wall made of rare metal!


To create such damage bare-handedly, the mech’s attributes had to be incredibly strong. But it wasn’t just the mech; the pilot himself must be a monstrous powerhouse!


Lu Jingning wasn’t entirely satisfied with the small dent he made. He frowned and then swung another punch.


The continuous, mighty impacts forced the audio staff to adjust the sound levels so that the audience wouldn’t go deaf.


Everyone’s eyes were fixed on the point of impact. They watched in amazement as the small dent gradually expanded, ultimately creating a huge hole in the metal wall.


The audience was left speechless, with their mouths wide open in astonishment.


The sheer intensity of these punches must be consuming an enormous amount of pheromones. Yet, this operator seemed to have an unlimited supply, delivering punch after punch without any sign of depletion.


That was the most terrifying aspect of it all!


After a while, Lu Jingning realized that the system-defined metal wall was expanding without limit and couldn’t be entirely broken through.


“Darn! This is cheating!” he thought.


He decided to change tactics and showcased the mech’s built-in weapon systems. However, this display was overshadowed by the bare-handed performance. The onlookers didn’t show much surprise as they already knew the mech’s weapon system was top-notch.


After a moment, the system gave the first assessment result – an S-grade.


If there were any doubts about the Imperial Navy University’s intentions to show off, they were now shattered. Both the mech and its pilot were absolutely phenomenal!


When the camera focused on Lu Jingning again, someone finally remembered and shouted, “It’s him! The Omega who participated in the intercollegiate exchange competition!”


This reminder triggered the recollection of others as well.


The media had been full of reports about the only naturally S-class Omega in interstellar history. Due to his unprecedented and unique status, Lu Jingning had become a sensation.


Nobody questioned his real capabilities anymore. His monstrous strength, showcased by the bare-handed chiseling, made people think he could fly out of the universe!


The people from the Imperial Navy University, who were initially worried about Lu Jingning’s overconfidence, now looked at each other in amazement.


With his talent for showmanship, Lu Jingning couldn’t avoid being the center of attention. But now, nobody even remembered the highly anticipated Thunder Technology University.


Unable to contain his excitement, An Huo howled, “Lu Jingning, you’re incredibly awesome!!!”


His shout ignited the enthusiasm in others, and the crowd joined in the cheer.


Unaware of how he had impressed the audience, Lu Jingning moved on to the next part of the challenge. The metal wall disappeared, replaced by a group of new mechs surrounding his own.


This part of the challenge assessed the mech’s defense strength.


Lu Jingning considered taking down all the attacking mechs, but he had been informed earlier that during this part of the challenge, their offensive capabilities would be nullified. He gave up on that idea and activated the defense systems.


The number of attacking mechs at the ninth-level difficulty had doubled compared to the previous level. However, everyone watched in awe as his mech stood firm against the relentless barrage of attacks.


Lu Jingning had already demonstrated the mech’s powerful defense in the first challenge. The force of his bare-handed chiseling had also affected the protective shield on the mechanical arm. If it could withstand such immense damage, the current attack seemed like a drizzle in comparison.


Without any suspense, Lu Jingning achieved another S-grade in the defense strength assessment. Back-to-back S-grades made everyone in the audience realize one thing – there might actually be a top-tier mech that could be directly put into military use, born from this exchange meeting!


The representative from the mech manufacturer who had just signed with Thunder Technology University showed a subtle change in expression, while those who missed their chances were all smiles. Their eyes subtly glanced at Yan Hebin, ready to rush over and negotiate a contract once the virtual assessment was over.


Suddenly, the mechs on the screen moved rapidly. The mechs that were previously firing didn’t stop, but a new teleportation point appeared at the edge of the field of view.


This was the third challenge, testing speed – the mechs had to reach the designated location in the shortest time possible.


Given that the previous two assessments already demanded immense physical endurance from the operators, coupled with Lu Jingning’s flamboyant performance, some were concerned about his pheromone depletion. However, the mech in the screen now seemed to be operating at full power, evading the dense barrage of fire like a lightning bolt and disappearing into the teleportation point’s light circle.


The results of the ninth-level assessment: three S-grades!


The whole venue erupted into excitement.


Although Warm Han’s previous performance with his mech had been incredible, this was different. This result was enough to drive people crazy with excitement.


Amid the jubilation, all eyes turned to the side door, eager to catch a glimpse of the mysterious S-class Omega.


However, they waited and waited, but the figure they expected didn’t appear.


Lu Jingning left the virtual c0ckpit and the venue without saying a word, only hastily sending a communication to Yan Hebin without even time for a proper greeting.


As soon as he stepped out, he realized that his heat cycle, which he thought would come in a few days, seemed to have arrived early.


Before getting on the vehicle, he quickly administered a suppressant to himself. But even so, waves of dizziness seemed to rise up intermittently.


Muttering an annoyed curse to himself, Lu Jingning knew that his pheromone levels were naturally much higher than ordinary Omegas. Adding to that the excessive showmanship he displayed earlier, the pheromones in his body were now raging so fiercely that the suppressant typically used by regular Omegas seemed insufficient.


Finally reaching the hotel, Lu Jingning leaned on the wall and made his way to his room, thinking of giving himself another injection once he got back to suppress the pheromones.


At that moment, he inadvertently looked up and saw two figures passing by at the end of the corridor. His slightly hazy eyes blinked.


Although his mind was somewhat foggy now, he thought he saw… Wen Xingchen and an unfamiliar Omega?


Oh, one more thing, they seemed to be chatting and laughing.
