C137 – Extra 5 – Coma (3)

Wen Xunyin didn’t think that Meng Jinhuai would suddenly come to the Spiritual Energy Research Institute located on the planet Duguang… Just as he later thought that, apart from Meng Jinhuai, no one in the world was willing to believe that Duan Hengye’s coma had something to do with spiritual energy—after all, this guess was really too crazy.

As a marshal, Meng Jinhuai’s public schedule could be checked on the official website of the Ministry of the Army. Anyone who found out that Meng Jinhuai would be coming to their planet in a while would be thrilled for a long time. Although Meng Jinhuai would occasionally appear here because Duan Hengye was teaching at An Luo University on the planet Duguang, he had never visited the institute before.

With the end of the w*ar, the Ye Tian Empire’s Spiritual Energy Research Institute had also begun its normal work. As a marshal, Meng Jinhuai had extremely high access rights, so he walked in as easily as any of the institute’s staff. It wasn’t until Wen Xunyin heard a beeping tone coming from the office door that he realized that Meng Jinhuai had actually come here.

“Marshal …” After seeing Meng Jinhuai, Wen Xunyin couldn’t help but rub his eyes. The last time he saw Meng Jinhuai was at a Mecha-related event in Southern Star. Although he was an invited guest, Wen Xunyin had never had an in-depth conversation with Meng Jinhuai.

What was more, the press conference at the Ministry of the Army had just ended a few hours ago. The news that Duan Hengye had fallen into a coma and had a very low chance of awakening has now become the hottest topic of discussion on the Star Network.


Along with this, many people were also curious about Meng Jinhuai’s movements. Wen Xunyin was one of those people. So after seeing Meng Jinhuai’s sudden visit, Wen Xunyin was naturally surprised.


Unlike Su Mingge, Wen Xunyin didn’t know about this until after the press conference. And now, as Duan Hengye’s friend, Wen Xunyin was naturally in a state of worry.

Southern Star had waited several days for Duan Hengye’s medical checkup results, and the complexity of the situation was evident. In the brief conference just now, although Ye Pu had introduced Duan Hengye’s current condition in more detail, “spiritual energy,”  a medical checkup value that was often overlooked, was not mentioned by him.

After seeing Wen Xunyin frozen in place, Meng Jinhuai gently nodded towards the other party and then asked, “May I ask if you have the time now?”

“Yes, of course.” Compared to the Mecha Research Institute and the Ministry of Wa*r, the work of the Spiritual Energy Research Institute was much easier. After hearing Meng Jinhuai’s words, Wen Xunyin silently moved away from the doorway.

This wasn’t a large office, with a medium-sized wooden table in the center of the room and chairs at each end. After detecting a guest coming in, the robot in the office brought a cup of coffee and placed it on the table. After it left, Wen Xunyin, who had resumed his seat, slowly calmed down, and then he asked Meng Jinhuai, “Marshal, do you have any work or things to ask about this time?”

Although Meng Jinhuai didn’t say so, knowing that a few hours ago there was a press conference about Duan Hengye’s physical condition that had just ended, Wen Xunyin had reason to believe that Meng Jinhuai’s trip was definitely related to Duan Hengye.


After he finished speaking, Meng Jinhuai directly opened up his light device. Immediately after, dense data and text appeared before Wen Xunyin’s eyes.


“This is?” Like most people on the stars, Wen Xunyin couldn’t understand Duan Hengye’s incredibly complicated medical report. “Look here.” Meng Jinhuai didn’t answer Wen Xunyin’s question head-on but directly adjusted the interface of the light device to the last page—the spiritual energy-related values.

Unlike the content that looked so hard to understand just now, Wen Xunyin had been dealing with such data every day, but now his experience couldn’t be of any use because Wen Xunyin saw that all of the dozens of values in the table of spiritual energy-related values had all bizarrely turned blank.

Ordinary people in the interstellar world would more or less possess some spiritual energy, and data like this was only possessed by extremely rare people with spiritual energy defects.

But everyone knew that Duan Hengye was someone who could pilot a high-level mecha.

Looking at the data in front of him. Wen Xunyin’s mouth widened in shock, and at this time, Meng Jinhuai, who was sitting across from him, finally asked, “Has there ever been this kind of temporary loss of spiritual energy due to unconsciousness in the stars before?”


After being asked, Wen Xunyin first shook his head dully, and immediately afterward, he suddenly began to nod again.


As if he had made a great decision, Wen Xunyin gritted his teeth and stood up from his seat, then said, “Marshal, I have an instrument here that I would like to show you.”


An instrument that was still in an experimental state, with top-notch energy values, even risked one’s life. A difficult choice was placed before Meng Jinhuai. Wen Xunyin thought he was crazy, but he didn’t expect that Meng Jinhuai’s courage to risk everything wasn’t inferior to his.

Meng Jinhuai finally agreed to the experiment, not to mention six percent; even if there was only a one-in-a-million chance, he would still try.

As the marshal of the military department, it was no exaggeration to say that Meng Jinhuai only had to be responsible for himself for anything he did. That was why he didn’t deliberately hide the fact that he went to find Wen Xunyin and had a meeting to discuss that crazy experiment. However, it didn’t take long for the two admirals in the military department to learn about it.

As Meng Jinhuai’s loyal subordinates, Yu Xinran and Dongfang Hewen had never questioned any of Meng Jinhuai’s choices before, but now, even though they didn’t know much about the experiment, they still appeared together in Meng Jinhuai’s office at the first opportunity and then brought up their objections.

Meng Jinhuai agreed to this crazy experiment in the first place, but there was still a period of time to wait from the confirmation of the experiment to the official start. During this period of time, Meng Jinhuai was still completing his daily work, and if an uninformed person saw him, they would never be able to imagine what kind of dangerous activity he was about to carry out or even see that Meng Jinhuai was worried about Duan Hengye’s well-being at this time—everything was just too calm.

After entering Meng Jinhuai’s office and looking at Meng Jinhuai, who was working on his light device, Yu Xinran and Dongfang Hewen looked at each other, and surprisingly, they were somewhat unsure of how to speak. So a strange scene appeared: although they were powerful admirals in the military headquarters, now Yu Xinran and Dongfang Hewen were like two elementary school students being punished. The two of them stood there without saying anything, and although Meng Jinhuai saw them, he still buried himself in his work, as if he didn’t feel that these two people were standing here obstructing him at all.

Not knowing how much time had passed, Meng Jinhuai finally finished dealing with the work at hand. He closed the light screen, then sat up straight and looked towards the two people standing in front of him. Seeing that Meng Jinhuai finally had the intention to pay attention to them, Yu Xinran gritted his teeth and finally spoke, “Marshal, we heard that you’ve recently been cooperating with the Spiritual Energy Research Institute.”

Although Yu Xinran usually talked more when she was around people, she was silent after meeting Meng Jinhuai. In the suffocating silence just now, Yu Xinran had already thought of her words, but now that she saw the look in Meng Jinhuai’s eyes, she was a little afraid to say anything. Unexpectedly, after hearing her words, Meng Jinhuai didn’t get angry but instead he nodded lightly and said, “Yes.”

This time, Yu Xinran was completely choked. However, very quickly, Dongfang Hewen, who hadn’t said a word the entire time standing beside her, finally spoke. He said to Meng Jinhuai with incomparable seriousness, “Marshal, we don’t know much about the specifics of that experiment right now, so we can’t accurately do a risk assessment, but… you have to realize that that instrument is still in a test state, and the risks involved are just too great.”

While listening to Dongfang Hewen speak, Meng Jinhuai picked up his teacup from the table. He nodded and said, “I know.”

“You …” Dongfang Hewen was tempted to say that Meng Jinhuai’s well-being wasn’t his alone but related to the future of the empire, and he also wanted to say that the stakes were a bit too high with spiritual energy as a bargaining chip. But after seeing Meng Jinhuai’s expression, he couldn’t say anything. At this time, Meng Jinhuai, who had already finished his work, stood up from his position, revealed a rare smile, then gently patted Dongfang Hewen’s shoulder and said, “This is my personal decision; I don’t need to be accountable to the Empire or to the Ministry of the Army, so I hope you guys can understand.”

Dongfang Hewen was quite a bit older than Meng Jinhuai, but when the two of them met, the Meng Jinhuai he remembered was already a soldier who thought of the empire in everything.


This was the first time Dongfang Hewen had heard such “selfish” words from the other party, so Dongfang Hewen froze there, and when he came to his senses, Meng Jinhuai had already disappeared.


Inside an internal laboratory cabin of the military building, Meng Jinhuai slowly threw out the mecha opening medallion, and after a while, he saw a huge mecha appear right in front of him. This was Nanwei, and as its owner, Meng Jinhuai rarely looked at it quietly like this. After a while, Meng Jinhuai slowly walked over to Nanwei’s side and then reached out his hand to touch the mecha’s shell extremely gently.

Spiritual energy was very important to Meng Jinhuai; he knew from the moment he became conscious that his glory and victories were all due to his spiritual energy. But now, Meng Jinhuai had found something more important.
After standing there for a while, a hovercraft finally dropped down from the mecha, and Meng Jinhuai boarded the mecha through it, and then the huge Nanwei rose up into the air and flew quickly towards its destination not far away.
