Chapter 9 – How did you get the military involved?
Lu Shifeng’s fingertips were pointed slightly as the corner of his mouth held an indifferent smile: “Give me his information.”
Secretary Jin was suspicious: “What do you mean?”
The last time the marshal asked for a person’s information, nobody knew where even their ashes went. Who knew you were this quick to anger, marshal!?
Lu Shifeng said, “Do you like to eat what he makes?”
Secretary Jin was stunned for a moment, but nodded honestly in the end: “Yes.”
“Remember why we accepted humans into the Dark Star in the first place?”
Lu Shifeng picked up the clear glass of water on the table and took a sip. Whether it was the white jade-like glass or a gun, they both complemented his hands well. When the man was settled down, he looked like an elegant noble.
Secretary Jin recalled: “Because we found that human vegetables and fruits help to stabilize the emotions of Dark Stars and helped the brain secrete dopamine.”
As we all know, dopamine was a molecule that made people feel good.
And the Dark Stars were inherently lacking in this part. To be more specific – they couldn’t make themselves happy.
Although the whole universe knew that the Dark Stars were brave and good at fighting, as well as smart, and that they are the leaders in all aspects, they also found that the Dark Stars seem to be shrouded in a depressing atmosphere all the year round.
The arrival of mankind broke this deadlock.
Some of them quickly discovered that eating vegetables and fruits can make one’s mood good.
Lu Shifeng put down the glass: “Hundreds of years have passed, and the efficacy of vegetables has been declining.”
“Yes.” Secretary Jin sighed: “Dopamine requires stimulation to be secreted, but with the same kinds of vegetables all year round, everyone will definitely get tired. In the past, the soldiers in our army were under great fighting pressure and it was often difficult to resolve their issues after returning from a bloodbath. When I first ate fruit, my mental state was fine, but it has gradually become worse over the years.”
Lu Shifeng raised his eyelids and the pair of phoenix1Sharp and pretty shape according to asian aesthetics. eyes were full of thought: “What about French fries?”
Secretary Jin was stunned.
Yes, she found that she was in a hyperactive mood for almost a period of time after tasting the fries, which is a sign of a rise in dopamine.
“You mean to say…”
Lu Shifeng tapped his fingertips slightly: “If I guessed correctly, his live broadcast response must be very good.”
Secretary Jin responded: “I heard that it seemed really good.”
If the newly developed dishes can really stimulate the secretion of dopamine better, then naturally it can get stagnant water to flow again.
Lu Shifeng said, “Give me his information.”
After Secretary Jin figured it out, she immediately said, “Yes!”
The season at the moment was summer. If the Sky City above was like a prosperous modern society, then the green trees and small bridges in Peace Paradise resembled the carefree ancient times.
Jian Luo hung a small hammock in front of his small yard, and sat on it to sketch.
His younger brother came over: “Brother, what are you doing?”
“Painting our future home.” Jian Luo bit the pen cover: “Our house is too small, we have to buy a new house in the future.”
His younger brother came over to take a look and lowered his eyes: “We can’t buy one.”
Jian Luo frowned: “Why?”
His younger brother sat next to him with a fan: “Because we don’t have a household registration, we live in an assigned house. If you want to buy a new house, you need a household registration.”
Jian Luo was a little upset and sat up: “A household registration is so important.”
His younger brother nodded: “We humans work hard all our lives to get registered.”
Jian Luo recalled the requirements for settlement: First, make a special contribution to the Dark Star. Second, the total household output must reach 10 tons of vegetables per year.
He sighed softly: “10 tons of vegetables, that’s really difficult.”
His younger brother nodded: “Brother, don’t worry. After I graduate, I will come down to farm together with you and help. One day, we will achieve our wish.”
Jian Luo rubbed his head: “You don’t need to worry about adult matters.”
He couldn’t let children do the hard work. Jian Luo put down his design sketches and began to reconnect to the Lightweb to see what was going on online.
It seemed that some people were pushing for the new public opinion, which was gradually beginning to gain an intensifying amount of momentum.
“Does the anchor have no professional ethics at all now?”
“Strongly requesting for Jinjiang Live Network to block the anchor.”
This group of people were noisy. Jian Luo frowned. He was not in a good mood. After tossing and turning for a while, he felt a little tired.
He was going to do some farm work but as soon as his hand touched the exit button, a new message appeared on the page:
Jinjiang Literature Network’s Jiang Jiang: “In view of the recent doubts about the safety of the new recipe on the site, we have decided to send the food for quality inspection and will definitely give you a frank and open account of it. Please stop criticizing our anchors. All are malicious remarks and unproven speculation and we will take legal measures to protect our rights.”
His words were powerful and firm.
Jian Nan2His internet alias, mentioned in prev chapt. opened the private chat with Jiang Jiang: “Thank you.”
“You’re welcome.” Jiang Jiang said, “You know, simple food like ours is normally not accepted by the inspection agency but I don’t know why the military sent someone to take it away and called for it to be sent for inspection.”
Jian Luo’s chin almost dropped: “Who do you think sent someone to take it away?!”
Jiang Jiang was startled by him: “M-military,ah. What’s wrong?”
Inexplicably, Jian Luo had a feeling of being entangled into something.
Although the other party was helping him, it felt like he had to pay a great price for the favor he owed them now.
Jiang Jiang also sensed this: “Luoluo, you are a human. How did you invite those people from the military?”
Jian Luo had no confidence: “I don’t know either.”
“Hahahaha.” Jiang Jiang was still rather naive: “Maybe it’s because the food you made was so delicious that they wanted to eat that too.”
Brother, you are very cool and humorous3Obviously sarcasm..
Jian Luo chatted with Jiang Jiang for a while, but not only did he not relax, the mood became heavier.
There was a sound from the courtyard outside. Someone was knocking on the door. He didn’t care to ask if it was Secretary Jin and ran out.
There was a knock on the door, and Jian Luo pulled his brother back: “Who is it?”
“Hello, is this Jian Sheng’s home?” An impatient voice came from outside: “I’m his teacher.”
Jian Luo looked at his brother subconsciously.
His younger brother cowered behind him as his eyes flashed clearly with unease. In fact, Jian Luo himself noticed recently that this child’s school was always on holiday breaks. He was either skipping classes or the school was going to close down.
Jian Luo knew what to do so he went to open the door.
Standing outside the door was a woman who was about 180 cm tall. She was even slightly taller than Jian Luo. She looked at Jian Luo and said, “You’re Jian Sheng’s brother.”
Jian Luo: “Yes, teacher. Please come in.”
The woman condescended before walking a few steps and coming in: “To introduce myself, my surname is Wang. I’m a Dark Star and also his class teacher. I am here to settle his withdrawal from school.”
Jian Luo was slightly surprised: “Can you tell me the specific reason?”
Teacher Wang glared at Jian Sheng: “You should’ve withdrawn him earlier. I really can’t teach this child. He even dares to fight with his classmates!”
Jian Luo looked down at his younger brother: “Did you hurt someone?”
“No.” His younger brother lowered his head: “I just pushed him.”
That shouldn’t be it.
Jian Luo looked up at the teacher: “Teacher, don’t you think it’s normal for children to fight each other? I say, let’s just apologize to his classmates, what do you think?”
The teacher sneered with contempt in her eyes: “You say? What’s the use? Did you know that he pushed a Dark Star, but refused to apologize?”
Jian Luo’s heart sank, knowing that this matter can’t be good.
He pulled his younger brother aside: “Tell me, what happened?”
His younger brother said, “That Dark Star stole the potato pancake you made for me.”
Jian Luo didn’t know whether to laugh or cry: “Why didn’t you tell me?”
His younger brother turned his face away stubbornly: “If you want to scold me, you can. If you want to hit me, do it. I won’t apologize anyway.”
Jian Luo looked at him quizzically.
His younger brother’s face was tensed up as his eyelashes trembled uncontrollably and his clenched little hands clearly exuded unease.
Jian Luo patted him on the shoulder: “Have some backbone!”
His younger brother was slightly surprised: “Don’t you want to scold me? I hurt a Dark Star and I may be expelled.”
“What’s the matter?” Jian Luo didn’t care: “You’re in the right, so why should I scold you? We may live on this planet, but we’re not their dogs. As a human being, you must have a backbone no matter what you do. You are very brave, you know? I’m so proud of you.”
There were some tears in his younger brother’s eyes.
Jian Luo gently touched his head: “Let’s go and talk to the teacher again.”
Teacher Wang has been waiting impatiently by the side: “Have you guys talked it out? You’re really rude. I’ll say it now, I’m here to handle his expulsion from school for him. Even if you don’t agree, it doesn’t matter. I’ve never taught such a disrespectful child before. Of course, if you still want to return to school, it’s not impossible.”
Jian Luo raised his eyebrows: “What are the conditions?”
“Apologize to the child in front of everyone.” Teacher Wang flipped her hair: “However, the school reported the assault, so you have to pay 1w stars for psychological therapy.”
Jian Luo: “Teacher…”
Teacher Wang interrupted him: “Don’t try to bargain with me about conditions, I know your family is poor, but there must be 1w.”
Jian Luo smiled and said, “No, you misunderstood.”
Teacher Wang looked at him suspiciously.
“I mean, he won’t be going to school anymore. Please go through with the transfer procedures.” Jian Luo lazily said, “After all, there is more than one school in the world, right?”
Mrs. Wang was startled. She looked at Jian Luo again and sneered: “Don’t blame me for not reminding you but our school’s tuition is already the lowest and higher institutions start at 5w just for registration, your family… “
Jian Luo’s younger brother clenched his hand.
Jian Luo looked down at him and saw two streaks of tears on the face of the stubborn child who said, “Brother, just let me apologize.”
