the cockroaches, I have basically been looking at the degrees on these dials.”
He retracted his hand and pointed his finger at the light screen.
“Tang Yibu, upload the speed data in units of one hundred meters.”
Tang Yibu pressed one hand on the console and stared at Ruan Xian.
The light screen flashed for half a second, and countless speed messages densely cover the route.
Ruan Xian’s fingers followed the light in the void all the way down, and finally stopped at a point outside the route map.
“Here, within a radius of one kilometer.
“Keep a deviation of two kilometers.
It’s best to be discovered by chance by the people from Elysium.” Tang Yibu raised the corner of his mouth and neatly erased the speed information.
“Yes, my Mr.
Ruan, you are very useful.”
“…Humans usually don’t think that the term ‘very useful’ is a compliment.”
“It’s nice you’re here*.” Tang Yibu reacted quickly, with a sincere expression on his face.
*The term he’s using here is (你真好) which is a bit tricky to translate, but it essentially means things are easier with you here/your help or it’s nice to have you here (because you could help), but it’s generally not used to compliment something like this thus why Ruan Xian replied below.
“You’re better off just using ‘useful’.” Ruan Xian rubbed his forehead.
“What can be regarded as a suitable expression?” Tang Yibu’s attention completely shifted to this new issue.
“…Well done? Good boy? You’re awesome?”
Ruan Xian took out the blood gun with a gloomy face and deliberately let it click so that Tang Yibu could see that it was meant to attack.
The android abruptly shut his mouth.
For a while, there was only the sound of Jiang Lin pounding the floor with her head.
This physical strength could be considered abnormal.
Ordinary people should have been too tired to move by now, however, the morbid persistence of drug addicts was manifested vividly by her.
Seeing that the atmosphere between Ruan Xian and Tang Yibu became tensed, the iron bead instinctively jumped off Tang Yibu’s head and bounced on the floor adopting with the frequency of Jiang Lin banging her head.
The thumping sound was uniform and with the iron bead, the volume instantly doubled.
The whole scene was quite eerily comical.
Ruan Xian shook his head and put away his gun.
“Turn right 35° and advance 893 meters.
I heard a team of more than five people.”
Then he scratched his hair neatly and pulled off Tang Yibu’s collar.
After making their clothes into a mess, Ruan Xian picked up the iron bead that was bouncing happily and used it to rub a lot of dirt on their clothes.
“Help.” Tang Yibu cooperatively opened the ship notification signal.
“Energy emergency, energy emergency— Requesting rescue from Elysium.”
It turned out that the people from Elysium were terribly cautious.
The team they chose as their target came quickly, but there was no intention of bringing the ship back directly.
They stayed where they were, waited for the three spacesuits to be thrown down to them, and then carefully stuffed themselves in.
The spacesuits were recovered extremely quickly, and they were even dragged around in circles for a long time, enough to make ordinary humans dizzy.
Even the unconscious Jiang Lin enjoyed this treatment.
However, the moment Ruan Xian stepped into the Elysium settlement, he immediately understood the reason for the other party’s caution…
A brightly lit shopping mall appeared in front of him.
There was almost no collapse inside the mall, and it was perfectly preserved.
There were no longer ordinary shops on each floor, and all the gorgeous storefronts had been transformed into living spaces.
As far as Ruan Xian could see, this kind of transformation was quite elaborate, and it even considered the design taste.
The air in the entire space was well ventilated and he could smell fresh ambient perfume, without the slightest smell of mold or excrement.
Faint music came from several rooms with different tracks.
The people coming and going were neatly dressed, and all the lights that could be turned on were on.
The transparent glass elevator was operating normally, just like when the civilized world was still there.
The pirates of Elysium didn’t cast too many glances at the two strangers.
They hurried forward, and they didn’t even have time to look at the beautiful lights on both sides of the road.
“We have already sent Jiang Lin to the medical room.” A young girl walked up to them with a warm smile.
“Thank you very much for sending her back.”
Ruan Xian looked at the young woman in front of him.
The girl standing two steps away was dressed in an elegant cheongsam, which complimented her particularly curvaceous figure and her long black hair was pulled into a delicate bun.
In this crazy environment, she even wore light makeup and the designs of her earrings and necklace was eye-catching without being overwhelming.
In terms of appearance, her face wasn’t so stunning, but her facial features were very delicate, and the smile had the pure temperament of the girl next door type, which was very charming.
The premise was that the subject of her conversation was a normal person.
Ruan Xian stared at her reddish eye for a while, but nodded, obviously not planning to make any other expressions.
The smile on the girl’s face was a little stiff.
“I am the deputy captain of Elysium, Duan Lili.” She raised her chest and stretched out a hand generously.
“If you don’t dislike it, the two of you can stay here for a night as a thank you for bringing Lin Jie home.”
“Bringing her home?” Tang Yibu instantly grabbed the key words.
Duan Lili’s gaze swept across Tang Yibu’s golden eyes, without any surprise concealment.
“Yes…Yes, this is our home.
Elysium is a big family.”
“You have a good environment,” Ruan Xian said, his eyes began to slip towards the place where the smell of medicine was emitted.
“Of course.” Duan Lili’s expression brightened a little.
“I think after Lin Jie wakes up, she will definitely want to thank you both in person… You look very tired.
Even if you don’t trust us, at least take a hot shower and change into clean clothes before leaving.”
Her outstretched hand hesitated in the air for a moment, and politely caught Tang Yibu’s arm.
“Please be sure to let us express our gratitude, won’t you?”
Duan Lili’s voice was soft and clear, sounding a bit intentionally pitiful.
‘It about time for things to come to an end,’ Ruan Xian thought.
They were originally here to stay, and since one was willing to fight, and one was willing to suffer* it would seem unnatural to drag things on.
This woman name Duan Lili seemed a little afraid herself, so he’ll just let Tang Yibu negotiate.
Seeing Tang Yibu being held by the beauty’s arm while still maintain a calm face, Ruan Xian couldn’t help but touch his earrings and tried to remind the other party to pay attention.
*This passage from Romance of the Three Kingdom.
It’s basically a metaphor for something that both sides are willing to do.
|| In this context, he’s basically saying their goal was to stay at Elysium and the other party is also offering so no need to put on an act and drag things out which could seem unnatural.
However, he was one step late— Tang Yibu looked around, sniffed, and lowered his gaze.
“Are you making dinner?” He stared at Duan Lili seriously and asked in the same soft voice.
The author has something to say：
Duan Lili: …Yes.
Actually, I don’t like snickers, it’s too sweet_(:з”∠)_
Let’s pretend that snickers was still there at that time! (……
