red water down his throat and closed his eyes again.
The second time, he seemed to be groping in the dark sound cocoon, trying to pull out the few silks he needed.
Tang Yibu’s singing voice was still in his ears, but it sounded a lot more blurred.
The time jumped from 4:25 to 7:38.
In this way, Ruan Xian practiced all the way to the sound of people in the hall, and countless footsteps and whispers joined the pot that was making chowder.
Ruan Xian couldn’t hear Tang Yibu’s tune again, but he wasn’t sure if that was the result of his own efforts, or if he was simply too tired to be conscious— His brain seemed to be part of the pot of chowder that was bubbling.
“I hear twenty-five soldiers,” he said at last.
His voice was low and soft, not hoarse that usual.
“They keep moving on the fifth floor and the number of breaths matched the sound of footsteps.
There are only these people on the fifth floor and no other living creatures.”
After that, he opened his eyes it took a while for him to pull his hearing back.
After more than three hours of practice, he seemed to have run several marathons in a row as he was covered in sweat and had a colic-like hunger coming from his stomach.
When his attention was taken away from his hunger, Ruan Xian slowly felt the other person’s body temperature— He didn’t know when, but Tang Yibu had hugged him to prevent him from bumping into him because of his loss of strength.
“Well done.” Tang Yibu let go of his arms and took out a piece of chocolate from his bag.
He carefully peeled off the tin foil, stuffed it into Ruan Xian’s mouth, and then sucked his fingertips stained with the brown dessert.
“Just in time for breakfast.”
Ruan Xian swallowed the chocolate in his mouth with difficulty, propped up his weak body, and took a simple shower.
His limbs were so weak that Ruan Xian almost thought of his time in the wheelchair had returned— This was the first time he understood Tang Yibu’s feelings for food.
The aroma of breakfast brought his whole body to life.
“Xiao Tang, I heard about what happened last night.
I’m here to apologize.
You had suffered a little injustice.” Fan Baiyan was sitting at the small table with the newcomers, and he glanced at Tang Yibu with a smile.
“…It’s just little brother Tang, that type of mechanical life sleeps like a log at night.
Why did it run out in the early hours of the morning?”
Duan Lili sat next to the old man, with a demure and gentle look, without saying a word.
“Oh.” Tang Yibu wiped the scrambled egg from the corner of his mouth and his tone became a little cramped.
He glanced at the weak Ruan Xian and smiled shyly.
“We tossed around a little late into the night and maybe woke it because of the noise.”
Ruan Xian almost choked to death on his scrambled egg that he was chewing.
In line with the principle of not wasting anything, he swallowed it forcibly.
Fan Baiyan was obviously a slick person.
His gaze swept to Ruan Xian’s slightly wet hair, red eyes, and the light blue bags from lack of sleep and let out a long “oh”.
“Young people nowadays are quite vigorous.”
Then he smiled.
“But this can’t happen again.
Xiao Tang, there are important people above, and I have to protect their safety.
Although I don’t want to say it, if this happens again, those soldiers will come get you.”
He stretched out his fingers like withered branches and nodded with his eyebrows.
I dare not.” Tang Yibu shook his head quickly.
“I’m really sorry Fan Lao.
That medicine was too exciting and I forgot myself for a while… Sorry.”
“Nn.” Fan Baiyan’s smile came back, but there was not much smile in his eyes.
“Oh, I have an announcement to make to everyone, so you guys listen carefully.”
After that, he stood up, smoothed the wrinkles on his robe, and walked to the center of the dining area.
Standing still on a slightly higher platform, Fan Baiyan took the microphone that Duan Lili handed over with both hands.
“Good morning, everyone.” The wrinkles on Fan Lao’s face gathered together, and he looked extremely kind-hearted.
“On a new day, there are two happy events—”
The pirates who were eating breakfast stopped their chopsticks one after another and looked at the captain of Elysium.
“Liang Yilan, who was in charge of the cleaning in Area C, and Jiang Lin, who was in charge of the exploration of the flickering grass have already risen to the fifth floor and no longer needs to perform high-intensity labor.
Come, Yilan and Linlin, say hello to everyone.”
A giant light screen emerged from the air, and two display boxes were divided on the light screen.
Jiang Lin and a middle-aged man occupied each half of the screen, waving at the pirates in the restaurant.
A hearty breakfast was placed in front of the two of them.
They looked to be in good condition and the white room behind them looked extremely luxurious.
“Hopefully seeing these efforts will encourage you.
So far, a total of fifty-nine people have received this honor, but there are still more than three hundred empty positions.
Now, two people around Linlin have gone up, and Yilian have also gone to accompany his wife to live a leisurely life and could enjoy the blessings of their work.”
Fan Lao stroked his beard.
“There are those who you’re friends with up there.
Let them pass on a few words of wisdom.
I remember that Dong Cong and Chen Liming still have friends here, right? Learn from them and don’t think about harassing little girls all day long.”
There was a burst of embarrassing laughter among the pirates.
“It’s less than half a month before the disinfection by the Mainbrain.
I know everyone is nervous… But listen to my advice.
You should rest well.
Your body comes first.
It’s rare to have such a good environment these days.
If you can live a year, that means you can earn a year longer.
If you get sick, don’t be embarrassed.
Just tell me.
We have top-notch medical resources, and someone can make up the work at any time.
Don’t be afraid of delay— Now, we have a few strong young men who have joined.
You are their seniors so you have to remember to take care of them.”
Few people laughed this time, but the pirates applauded symbolically, their smile showing a bit reluctance.
“Okay, let’s eat.” The old man shook the bell again and walked slowly down the high platform.
Ruan Xian and Tang Yibu exchanged glances in silence.
The “disinfection” of the Order Supervisors; this information also appeared on the Walking Stones side.
[You will know what’s good or bad when the Order Supervisors comes to “disinfect” next time.
The boarding fee is not easy to make up.]
[If it weren’t for survival, who would drive an entire ship these days?]
‘Things are getting more and more interesting,’ Ruan Xian thought as he stuffed his mouth full of greasy scrambled eggs.
“Don’t panic.” Fan Baiyan returned to his seat and took a sip of tea.
“In the first few days, you’re still guests.
I will send you some wine and fireflies in a while.
Everyone should take a break and walk around.
If you really don’t want to stay, I won’t force you to.”
“Fan Lao.” Tang Yibu smiled cautiously.
“This… Can I borrow your medical room? My leg still hurts a little bit.”
Duan Lili finally raised her head and glanced in the direction of the two of them.
Her eyes full of disappointment.
When Ruan Xian looked up, she turned her eyes away and looked at another young man among the newcomers.
The young man also looked straight at her, his eyes full of pity, faintly angry.
“Of course, of course, it’s on the third floor.” Without noticing the episode around him, Fan Baiyan showed a little embarrassed look.
“But Xiao Tang, medicine is not cheap.
When the treatment is over, I’m afraid you two will have to work here for some time to pay off your debts.
This, you can understand, right?”
“No problem, right, baby?” Tang Yibu’s smile brightened again.
“Of course.” Ruan Xian also smiled.
Yes, Tang Yibu is calling Ruan Xian baobei if you’re wondering.
