After falling into a deep sleep, Fang Linyan suddenly felt something was wrong as if something big was destined to happen. He had an indescribable feeling. Then, Fang Linyan’s retinas popped up the following information. Each word was in blood red and large font,
“It’s now: Yangfan City time, 3:17:14 am. Every contestant, the easiest adaptation time has passed…”
“Joint trial, the first phase is over.”
“Joint trial, the second phase is officially started!”
“You have obtained the main mission: the Symbol of Steel Fist.”
“Mission Introduction: The ruler of this city is a powerful organization called Iron Fist Brotherhood. They have a set of effective ways to manage the city, including the provision of exchange agencies that can let some peripheral members exchange some advanced equipment or technology.”
“Mission Content: Successfully redeem 1 of the Type B equipment/item of Iron Fist Brotherhood, and hold it for 10 minutes.”
“Mission Explanation: This is not an easy mission, so you can consider whether you want to seek the help of others. In a cruel world, it is normal to form a team; those who stick to their own rules are often eliminated the earliest unless you have superior strength! The faster you complete the mission, the higher the reward you will get!”
“Warning: This main mission has a limit on the number of people who can complete it. Only the first 80 people can complete this mission. After the number of people has reached the limit, this mission will be officially closed and enter the third phase.”
“If during this process the number of remaining contestants in the world is less than 80 people, then it will go directly to the third phase.”
When Fang Linyan saw the mission content of the main mission, a strange feeling suddenly emerged in his heart, and he couldn’t help but look at the wreckage of the jetpack next to him,
“Holy fucking shit, could this thing be 1 of the type B equipment/item of the Iron Fist Brotherhood? Does it still count if it’s damaged?”
So he waited for 10 minutes with the damaged jetpack, and he found that nothing happened, so he shrugged helplessly.
“En, this mission is very clear. It seems to be very difficult. It even recommends the contestants to team up to finish it, but where do I find a team! But… for me, it doesn’t seem necessary to form a team!”
After thinking for a while, Fang Linyan only felt sleepy, and he fell asleep again. This sleep lasted for 5 hours. When he woke up, the sun was already shining. The sunlight even shined through the cracks on the ground; the shadows seemed very mottled.
After Fang Linyan woke up, he wiped his face hastily, pinned the badge he got from Lieutenant Lucan to his chest, made some arrangements, and then went to Yangfan City.
With a badge to open the way, Fang Linyan entered the city unimpeded. At this time, Yangfan City was still that dirty, messy, and full of vitality. Entering here for the second time, Fang Linyan was already familiar with this place.
No one thought of where he went this time.
It was neither the headquarters of the Iron Fist Brotherhood, nor the Lieutenant Colonel Mavin that Lieutenant Lucan said before he died.
Why didn’t he go directly to the headquarters and exchange directly? Because Fang Linyan felt that he most likely couldn’t get in by himself. Even if he got in, taking out Blood Orchid abruptly would only be scammed. Such a weakling, it would be a crime to not bully him. He couldn’t put pin his destiny on the character of the exchanger!
There were even more reasons not to go to Lieutenant Colonel Mavin. First of all, it couldn’t be ruled out that this was a huge scam.
He got Lieutenant Lucan’s spoils, so who Lieutenant Lucan hated the most?
It must be him. A narrow-minded person would even think that: if it weren’t for you bastard, how could I fuck up here? Maybe I will be drinking wine and having fun with my lover in the the red light district of Yangfan City. With this kind of mentality, it would be weird if Lieutenant Lucan didn’t set him up.
Secondly, even if what Lieutenant Lucan said is true, so what?
Lieutenant Colonel Mavin was his best friend, but he didn’t have any friendship with Fang Linyan. If Fang Linyan really handed in Lieutenant Lucan’s dog tag and Blood Orchid flower like a retard… Lieutenant Colonel Mavin would inevitably think righteously: This thing cost my brother’s life. Now that he is dead, I of course have to take care of his wife and son. This thing belongs to his son, and I’m his son’s guardian, so I of course should take care of this thing.
This kind of damn logic sounded weird, but if Fang Linyan went to Lieutenant Colonel Mavin alone and was pointed at Lieutenant Colonel Mavin’s subordinates with guns, he could only let it go with a laugh and say: You old man is really a true friend.
Because of this, Fang Linyan decided to use his own way to get this thing done.
His destination this time was the same maintenance base that he visited yesterday.
He and Hans stayed here for several hours yesterday afternoon, and their work also attracted engineers to come to watch. One of the guys, Markwen, left a very deep impression on Fang Linyan. Ahem, not because his skills were good, but his skills were completely fucked up. He was also an arrogant person. The rest of the people didn’t want to bother him at all.
Fang Linyan asked Hans to find out that Gundom, Markwen’s uncle, was the supervisor of the maintenance base. He won the trust of the superior and he was promoted to the rank of colonel not long ago. Although he had a wife in his early years, she died due to an accident. After she died, he was single for the next twenty years, so he was very fond of his nephew. It was no wonder Markwen was so arrogant here.
Since then, Fang Linyan had been paying attention to him. When others saw Mark Wen as a plague, he would take the initiative to talk and make friends with him.
Markvin was arrogant, but he could still tell the good from the bad. Fang Linyan’s skill was obviously quite excellent, so he was a valuable person. Therefore, he also talked with Fang Linyan. The 2 could still talk well in this situation.
Because of this relationship, plus the badge on the chest, and of course the 5 copper coins secretly stuffed with the guard, Fang Linyan was able to once again come to the maintenance base. He saw Markwen easily. After the 2 chitchatted for a while, seeing that no one was around, Fang Linyan leaned forward and said straightforwardly,
“I came back this time because I actually have something very important to Colonel Gundom.”
TL: How can he ensure that this is not another scam?
