At this point, it seems that he still had many things to do. For example, there were still a few milestones that had not been completed, or try to get some local currency, or think a way to find clues for the hidden milestones, or find the whereabouts of other contestants…
However, Fang Linyan did not do these seemingly reasonable things, but turned and walked directly outside the city! Because in his mind, he had already determined what was the most urgent thing at present. In the face of this matter, the priority of everything must be automatically lowered by 1 level and be directly put aside!!!
This matter was – to bootlick!!
Bootlick who? Of course, it was the actual ruler of the city: Iron Fist Brotherhood.
Fang Linyan came to this conclusion because he felt that when dealing with the cunning Gagie and Atos at Bison Stamping Workshop, they were obviously intimidated after he mentioned the name of Lieutenant Lucan.
Regarding the level of familiarity with Yangfan City, Gagie must be the clearest. And Iron Fist Brotherhood could terrify a local boss, so wasn’t it obvious who should he bootlick?
The most important thing was that after Fang Linyan made this idea, he immediately found a crucial entry point. With this entry point, he felt that he was very sure that he would have a relationship with Lieutenant Lucan. Even if it failed in the end, he believed that he would not leave a bad impression to the other party.
Because of this, Fang Linyan left behind so many complicated things and went straight out of the city. Of course, his destination was the west gate guarded by Lieutenant Lucan and others.
At this time, the sun was blazing, Lieutenant Lucan and others had come to the shade, but the place they stayed was still quite particular. There would always be a person in the most open place, not only that, but the rest were also separated in a group of 2 to 3. There wouldn’t be an embarrassing accident of being all killed in 1 go. They were really well-trained.
Fang Linyan, who was far away, saw Lieutenant Lucan. This guy was questioning another person who was about to enter the city, and he simply dismissed this person easily. Then, he saw Fang Linyan as soon as he turned his head, and he beckoned to let the person pass.
Fang Linyan had prepared a series of words before, but he didn’t expect that the other party would take the initiative to call him over. This was really a surprise. He immediately went up and said,
“What’s the matter? Sir?”
Lieutenant Lucan said very seriously,
“Have you finished your business?”
Fang Linyan was stunned, then he smiled honestly,
“It’s finished, but I was forced to mention captain’s name when doing it.”
Then Fang Linyan told Lieutenant Lucan what had happened before. He didn’t hide or exaggerate anything. Lieutenant Lucan didn’t react to it much, but he mentioned another topic suddenly,
“When you introduced yourself, you called yourself an honest Wrench! Why did you have this nickname?”
Fang Linyan’s heart moved, and he secretly thought: Here it comes! He had previously guessed that Yangfan City would be undergoing post-war reconstruction, so there should be a great demand for all kinds of skilled workers, so he spent a lot of effort in introducing himself. He wanted to seize every opportunity to present himself. Now it seemed that his effort was worth it. He smiled and said,
“That’s because I know a little about machine maintenance, and my friends will come to me if they encounter problems in this area, so over time they just gave me this nickname.”
Lieutenant Lucan’s eyes flashed. He nodded and said,
“Very good. It’s a coincidence to say that you just told Gagie that guy said that I have something for you to work on. This is really accurate. I do have something to find you here.”
Fang Linyan knew that this was a great opportunity to present himself, so he smiled humbly,
“Sir, let me guess, is it related to that jeep? I just owed you a favor by reporting your name, so I came back here to see if there is anything I can help. After all, that jeep was hit hard; it is not easy to fix it.”
Lieutenant Lucan took a deep look at Fang Linyan, and he was finally moved a little as he said,
“Great, I like to deal with smart people like you. According to your previous information, Hans did find his baby, but the news he gave back made our team very passive because he said he needed 3 days to repair the car, but we need it for an operation at 9 pm tonight…”
After Lieutenant Lucan said this, a series of messages popped up on Fang Linyan’s retinas,
“No. Contestant ZB419, congratulations for triggering the hidden mission: Allies!”
“Mission Content: Successfully complete Lieutenant Lucan’s demands.”
“Mission Reward: Unlock the reputation of Iron Fist Brotherhood.”
“Mission Hint: The higher Lieutenant Lucan’s satisfaction after completing the mission, the higher the mission reward you will get! If you can surprise him, then he will give you a correspondingly rich return.”
Facing the unexpected hidden mission, Fang Linyan seemed quite calm because he was mentally prepared when he came. He felt that this should be a good opportunity. The only thing that was different from what he predicted was that this time he actually got a hidden mission!
The word “hidden” suddenly made Fang Linyan think of 1 thing, that was, the ‘hidden title’ mentioned by the system when he first entered the world. Is this a coincidence or is it a clue left on purpose?
“Eh-hem.” Seeing that Fang Linyan was distracted, Lieutenant Lucan was obviously a little unhappy. He took it for granted that Fang Linyan wanted to back out after hearing the ins and outs of the matter, so he said with a sullen face,
“I won’t let you work for nothing. I heard that you ordered a shotgun module from Gagie? Although the goods there are not bad, it is impossible to compare with the internal materials of our Iron Fist Brotherhood. If you do it properly, I can get you a good one!”
Hearing Lieutenant Lucan’s words, Fang Linyan immediately recovered and smiled bitterly,
“No, no, Sir, I don’t mean it, but I haven’t eaten yet, so I was just thinking of eating something somewhere, then I’ll go help.”
Lieutenant Lucan gave Fang Linyan a dubious look, then he walked to the side, kicked the guy who was asleep against the wall and said,
“Dorga, get up! Your backpack is in the way. Give a portion of ration to Wrench, then bring him to find Hans in the garage.”
Dolga was a middle-aged man who didn’t speak much. He looked decadent, vicissitudes and aging, and he was limping. He nodded silently, then stood up, took a box from the backpack and threw it to Fang Linyan. He pointed at Fang Linyan to motion him to follow him, then he led the way.
TL: He got a hidden mission so fast? Where will this hidden mission lead him to?
