Chen Rui slept for 2 days and 2 nights. After waking up, he found that there were 2 women taking care of him in the room. After seeing him wake up, a maid ran out of the room immediately.
Soon, Nate appeared in front of Chen Rui.
“Richard, what’s the matter with you? You suddenly fell asleep for so long. I can’t even wake you up by shouting.” Nate’s tone was filled with blame-like care. Before Chen Rui matured as a prey, Nate naturally had to take care of him. He took the porridge that was handed over by the maid. He looked at the 2 maids and only drank the porridge without saying anything. Nate understood, and he immediately told the maids to leave. Then Chen Rui spoke. His first sentence was, “Teacher, it seems like my hunch is accurate. My magic eyes are really going to mutate!”
“Really?” Nate’s eyes flashed with extreme excitement. This excitement seemed to contain an odd heat.
Chen Rui noticed it. He nodded affirmatively, “Deep sleep is one of the signs. It’s the same as last time. What about teacher’s preparations? If I can go to the 4th floor of the Book Collection Hall and get a lot of new information, it should be an opportunity to induce the mutation!”
“I am almost ready. Tell me in detail about the last magic eyes mutation. Let’s see what other conditions are needed. This time we must succeed!” Nate emphasized the word “we” like they were a family. If Chen Rui hadn’t known his background a long time ago, he might have been moved.
“Um… Let me think about it. After meeting the requirements, I need some rare magic materials. After absorbing those materials, the mutation should be truly completed. The more complete and rarer the materials, the higher the success rate of the mutation. My ability after the mutation will be stronger.” Chen Rui was not only eyeing for the 4th floor mystery, but also the Bloody Empire Mechanic Association’s material. According to his plan, the “magic eyes” would soon be mutated. His act of becoming Nate’s apprentice was also coming to an end. This should be the last chance. He definitely would try to get something out of it.
“Did the same thing happen in the past?” Nate was a little suspicious when he heard that a lot of precious materials were needed.
Chen Rui was long-prepared, “My teacher used to help me in this way. Initially, I had several mutation failures due to insufficient materials and it almost took my life. Later, after selling everything and exerting a lot of effort to gather the materials, my mutation finally succeeded.
Nate was thinking that Chen Rui was just a little apprentice who had just barely become a mechanic, and he respected Nate normally, plus the Mechanic Association was his base. Even if Chen Rui wanted to play some tricks, he wouldn’t succeed. Nate put aside his suspicions immediately. He nodded, “The magic materials are not a problem. The preparations for entering the 4th floor are almost done. it depends on your physical condition now. As long as you recover your strength, you can enter.”
“I probably will take about 3 days to recover to the best condition.” Chen Rui wanted to say that he could go immediately, but on a second thought, he changed his mind.
“En, the talent mutation is a serious matter. You must be cautious. Then you should take a good rest now and adjust your spirit power to the optimal state. After 3 days, I will take you to the 4th floor of the Book Collection Hall.” After reminding him of some matters, Nate left the room.
Time passed quickly. 3 days passed in a flash.
In the past 3 days, Chen Rui sometimes recuperated in his room, and sometimes he went out to get some air and go shopping which made him seem like adjusting his state.
“Are you sure you’re almost ready?” Nate looked at Chen Rui, who was full of energy, and asked again worriedly.
“Yup, teacher, let’s go.”
Nate gave Chen Rui a cloak and a pair of glasses. Nate told him to wear them before entering the 4th floor, otherwise he would encounter terrifying dangers.
Chen Rui saw Nate’s cautious look, so he didn’t dare to be negligent too. The two of them went straight through the magic circles of the first 3 floors of the Book Collection Hall and came to the entrance of the 4th floor… This was a heavy door with countless ancient patterns. It seemed to be locked, but this door did not have anything like a keyhole.
Bright red blood appeared on Nate’s fingertips, and he pressed it toward the door. The blood flew out automatically and landed on a few specific positions on the door . The patterns began to automatically undergo strange changes, and they finally combined into 18 circular luminous imprints. There were rumbling sounds as the door slowly opened.
Chen Rui’s pupils shrank slightly. Others might not understand these 18 imprints, but he was familiar with them. These were the exact basic rune signs engraved on the 18 ancient runes slabs in Zola’s hands!
The 4th floor of the Book Collection Hall is actually related to the ancient runes? Chen Rui immediately thought of the ancient magic tower of the Dark Shadow Empire which he still didn’t have the opportunity to go again. It seems like the background of both empire’s Mechanic Associations are extraordinary. In comparison, the Fallen Angel Empire looks rather inferior.
The door opened, and there was a large hall inside, but there was nothing else except for an aperture exuding blue light on the ground in the center.
Chen Rui knew that the 4th floor was not so simple, so he didn’t ask or act rashly. He honestly followed Nate.
“Quickly put on those 2 items and walk in. Otherwise, as soon as the light of the symbols on the door disappears, the door will be closed. It cannot be opened again within 7 days.”
Chen Rui hastily put on his cloak, glasses, and walked into the door. Then Nate took out some materials and set them into the groove around the aperture. The aperture suddenly became dazzling, and a blue space door appeared in the center. This should be the real entrance.
After stepping into the space door, there was a shake in his mind, and he appeared in another place.
To be precise, this was a world.
There were countless small worlds in this world. They constantly changed into various images or glosses like each of them was an entrance.
Chen Rui was obviously floating in the air, and he had no place to stand, but with every step he took, a translucent step would automatically appear to allow him to step on it. It was very strange.
“Richard, there are countless mysterious knowledge and power in this space. You can choose these entrances to observe or comprehend. No matter what you see, as long as you can remember or comprehend a trace of its mystics, you can greatly benefit from it. But there are also great dangers inside. The cloak and glasses that you are wearing are for protective purposes. Remember, no matter when it is, you can’t take them off! These 2 items also have a time limit. Once the glasses give off a red warning light, you must not hesitate to smash the red jade lock on your cloak immediately. You will be sent directly to the entrance door. There is more than one master who died here. You must remember this! ”
After speaking, Nate chose an entrance. Using some means, the image of the world’s entrance suddenly paused at a scene. Nate immediately entered it, and the image resumed the rapid “refresh”.
The sir “teacher” apparently went to comprehend on his own. It seemed that Nate was “using power for personal gain”. His previous closed door cultivation was also conducted on this mysterious 4th floor.
Chen Rui used the [Analytical Eyes] to appraise the cloak and glasses on his body and found that there was no special attribute, but the materials were quite special. There were some strange patterns in it. It seemed to exude mysterious functions. For instance, the material of the glasses had some kind of “filtering” function. However, for the sake of safety, he better be careful.
He approached those small worlds curiously. He chose one at random and walked in. Suddenly, he felt that the space was distorted, and he had entered a new world.
This was an endless ocean which was beautiful and mysterious. From time to time, weird fishes jumped out and glided at low altitude. Then it dived into the water, splashing some water. The amazing thing was that when Chen Rui’s consciousness was fixed on that fish, he felt that his perspective changed suddenly, and he became this fish. He was gliding in the air and swimming in the water.
At the same time, some information appeared in Chen Rui’s mind: Missile fish. Dead Sea’s specialty fish with a lifespan of 50 years. Features: Bounce and low-altitude gliding.
Chen Rui was truly amazed by this discovery. Then he saw half-naked female sea monsters, water elementals and other exotic marine creatures. There were even huge, terrifying deep-sea demonic beasts.
Chen Rui could not only obtain the information of each creature, but he also transformed into these species with his consciousness. He could act as well as feel their habits and living in the sea from a first-person perspective.
This “small world” was exactly the database about the Dead Sea. Although it was not particularly comprehensive and there would be some “unknown” prompts, Chen Rui was greatly impressed in his heart. It’s the first time I have encountered this kind of knowledge or information acquisition method. Such learning is much better than the ordinary book reading. If the learning in my world can be carried out in this first-hand method, the education world may have a qualitative breakthrough.
Although Chen Rui liked this “Dead Sea” world very much, he knew that his purpose today was to find Fertile Yuan Soil. Furthermore, the cloak and glasses he was wearing still had a time limit, so he didn’t stay too much and left.
Next, Chen Rui entered a world of lightning and thunder. There were palaces with strange styles in the clouds. All the creatures here had a whirlwind-like lower bodies: Wind elementals.
Wind elementals: Elementals condensed by the power of wind elements. They live somewhere in the human world. Their nest is called the Cloud Palace. Wind elementals are good at flying, characterized by their fast action. They have weak physique and defense. They have powerful thunder and storm magic.
To Chen Rui’s surprise, the thunder flying in disorder near the Cloud Palace didn’t actually feel like an illusion, but they had a real damage effect. However, when the thunder hit his body, it slipped away. It should be the effect of that special cloak on his body.
Chen Rui was not very interested in the wind elementals. He immediately left the world of the Cloud Palace and began his search. The world in the 4th floor space was by no means what one saw on the surface. The entrance of every world would change images, and each image represented a new space. Some were not even repeated up till now. No one knew how many “worlds” were there specifically on the 4th floor.
Fortunately, Chen Rui had the skill of [Deep Analysis]. Those changing images or glosses of the world were actually a kind of “preview”. Although they changed rapidly, in the “eyes” of the [Deep Analysis] which had high-speed computing equivalent to computers, it was not much faster than the slow motion playback. Chen Rui noted the changes in various worlds, then he began to screen quickly. After repeated trials, Chen Rui finally found a mountain in a “world”.
Although it looked like an ordinary white mountain range, several words that made Chen Rui uplifted appeared in his consciousness.
Sacred Mountain: Seckred.
Hmm the 4th floor, it feels like Google with 5D experience 🎥…
