“Mr. Wrench, this time you have obtained a transaction quota of close to 100,000 points in Temporary Sales Point No. 211 of the Star Consortium. I have used my personal authority to help you obtain some benefits. Your transaction quota is directly set as 100,000 points by default.”
“So from now on, you are a VIP customer of Star Consortium! You can enjoy a private butler/enjoy set meal/25% off any shopping transaction and other services. Please keep your VIP card. But even if it is lost, it doesn’t matter. Because we have recorded your personal information, we will be able to identify your distinguished identity next time you go to any of the Star Consortium’s sales points.”
Fang Linyan impatiently took this VIP card and stuffed it into his arms,
“Come on, give me No. 3 quickly.”
“Okay sir, but unfortunately I can’t give it to you personally. You need to pick it up yourself. It is worth reminding you that this thing is very weird and cannot be placed in your Nightmare Mark’s private space.”
After Fang Linyan heard his words, he stood up and went directly to grab the exquisite box in the robot’s hand.
At first, he took it with one hand, but after holding the handle on the box, he knew why the robot was required for delivery!
The box didn’t look too big, but it was actually surprisingly heavy. Fang Linyan held with 1 hand and exerted force, but he couldn’t move it at all! Fang Linyan still didn’t believe in it as he directly lifted with both hands. He used all his strength, but the box didn’t seem to move the slightest! It could be seen that the weight of No. 3 inside was surprisingly high.
Ruto said very intimately at this time:
“Honorable VIP customer, the weight of this cargo is 1267 kg, and the density is amazing. You can enjoy our free delivery service 5 times a year as long as the delivery location is designated on this planet. What do you need? Do you need this service?”
Fang Linyan was about to agree dejectedly, but he suddenly felt something and smiled,
“No, I was joking with you just now.”
After speaking, he picked up the box in his hand and walked a few steps on the spot with ease.
Ruto was stunned after seeing it.
Fang Linyan continued,
“I heard that you have a service to send people away, right? I don’t want to go out with this stuff which will cause a lot of attractions. I think someone is probably waiting outside already.”
“Yes, we can escort you to the designated location and ensure your safety during the escort process. However, because you are doing a joint trial mission, the place must meet two conditions. Firstly, you have been there for at least 60 minutes. Secondly, there is no hostile lifeform within 1 kilometer of that place.”
Fang Linyan thought for a while and talked to his teammates first, saying that he had used the Star Consortium’s delivery service to leave first, then he considered that he might need a quiet and solitary environment, so he set the destination at the abandoned gas station which he had stayed twice.
Before leaving, Ruto suddenly said,
“Honorable VIP customer, maybe I have a message that you will be interested in. I hope this message can gain your friendship and let me have the honor to serve you next time.”
Fang Linyan was taken aback and said,
“Then this news is free?”
Fang Linyan said,
“Okay, if I will come to the black market again, I will appoint you to serve me.”
This was what Ruto wanted, and he lowered his voice and said,
“The honorable VIP customer because 2 rare grade goods appeared in this trade which breaks the record in these 3 months. This surprised the headquarters, so they decided to carry out a replenishment. So, in your following adventure, you will likely face some new items or weapons. Moreover, these things were not on the menu you browsed before.”
Fang Linyan was stunned, but first asked another question,
“2 kinds of rare grade goods? Are Blood Orchid leaves and Blood Orchid root considered 2 kinds?”
Ruto said meaningfully,
“Of course not.”
Fang Linyan was silent for a while, then he nodded and said,
“Okay, I get it.”
Ruto said seriously,
“Please take care.”
Fang Linyan suddenly said,
“By the way, next time you serve me, you should switch to a holographic image, like Yu Aoi, Moyu Matsuoka, Kiko Suwon, Ai Maeda, Mitsuko Mori, Ohashi Miku etc… I don’t like any of them!”
10 minutes later, Fang Linyan stood there, looking up at the water drop-shaped light blue flying vehicle of the Star Consortium.
This trip to the black market had drained almost all of his savings, and he even sold his main weapon. If it weren’t for the imprint on his chest, he would never do this.
Carrying the box, Fang Linyan walked out several hundred meters, then he familiarly got into the hidden abandoned oil depot.
After he put the box on the ground, there was a series of cracking sounds from the rocks below, which showed that the weight of the goods inside was indeed shocking. The reason why Fang Linyan could easily lift up with 1 hand was not that his strength increased sharply, but when he exerted force, the mark on his chest suddenly buzzed and slightly oscillated again.
Not only that, the auction item No. 3 in the box should have sensed the oscillation of the imprint, and it was also activated in an instant, generating a buzzing resonance. After the resonance, the weight of the box suddenly became extremely light. , Fang Linyan naturally lifted it very easily.
After entering the hiding place, Fang Linyan opened the box in his hand and immediately saw the real version of auction item No. 3. Compared with the previous 3D virtual images, the real object of auction item No. 3 gave a completely different feeling. In terms of appearance, it was quite good.
First of all, its surface was like the kind of exquisite stainless steel component that had just been wiped with engine oil. There was a layer of crystal oily luster on it, which was very vivid and crystal clear as if it had its own life.
Of course, it was precisely because of this that the thick and long cut mark on No. 3 was particularly eye-catching. It clearly showed the metal curling, the torn and twisting, and the intricate and complex internal structure. As for the thick mark, it gave people a particularly cruel feeling.
Secondly, from the mark, the internal mechanical parts were still running slowly, and the mode of operation was silent and still similar to that of dominoes, completely subverting Fang Linyan’s common sense!
Looking at the half-broken metal component in front of him, Fang Linyan was also a little dumbfounded. This thing didn’t even have a screw hole. Even if he wanted to violently dismantle it, he didn’t have a handy tool for it…
After thinking about it, he tentatively put his finger on the auction item No. 3, and his whole body shook immediately. The oscillation of the mark on his chest become more intense.
Not only that, but auction item No. 3’s own oscillations also began to accelerate gradually, and the oscillation frequencies of the 2 quickly matched. Finally, they were completely unified as if they were one.
After this resonance lasted for about 30 seconds, a series of “clank” sounds suddenly came from inside the auction item No. 3. Occasionally, there were “click” sounds, which sounded like metals colliding with each other.
Judging from Fang Linyan’s many years of experience as a bench worker, this meant that the complex mechanism inside had begun to operate regularly. There was likely to be a sophisticated mechanical lock protecting the precious secrets inside, and this lock was now unlocking slowly!
Sure enough, with the last “click” sound, the auction item No. 3 began to slowly rotate on its own. At this time, it gave an impression of a tight mechanical metal flower bud, slowly blooming with the rotation…
Not only that, as it was unfolded, Fang Linyan also discovered that there were multiple ∞ symbols inside, and there were also several Mobius surfaces. The precision of the inside was beyond imagination. Such a component had surpassed numerous spans of human civilization.
After seeing the Mobius surfaces, Fang Linyan realized that he had previously called the mark on his chest incorrectly. To be precise, it should be called the Infinite Mark or the Mobius Mark.
Finally, the auction item No. 3 stopped spinning, and it finally opened the hard and complicated outer shell completely. It looked like a blooming iron lotus, completely exposing what was hidden in the deepest part. Fang Linyan took a deep breath and stepped forward. He suppressed his desire to look inside, and he was dumbfounded and suddenly froze in place!!!
TL: What is it? A scam? Why would he be dumbfounded?
