Since the last incident on Tize Star, Duan Hengye’s side, besides his assistant, had a few new staff members who were in charge of security. From the moment he boarded the starship, Duan Hengye noticed that even though he was far away from the war zone, the atmosphere among these staff members was still heavy.
Just like what he had said to the royal family just now, the level of armor technology of the Lai Sheng Alliance was not low at all. Although he had managed to calm the students down just now in the classroom and the first battle had turned out well. But Duan Hengye, he still hadn’t completely relaxed.
By the way, after every war, the military department would compile a record and upload it to the internal system. But Professor Duan, who has all kinds of black technology, obviously won’t wait for the “second-hand” notification.
After boarding the starship, Duan Hengye closed the entrance to the lounge, then turned on his light computer and sat down at the desk. After the experience of hacking into the military department’s intranet to steal data, he was able to log into the internal system much faster this time.
But after ten minutes, Duan Hengye managed to enter the backstage, and then he saw a neat piece of surveillance video appear in front of him. It was the video footage of the operation bays of all the participating armors, and it looked extremely spectacular at first glance. Normally, only Meng Jinhuai and the two generals had the right to view these videos.
Although it was possible to directly write a command to lock down the armor Meng Jinhuai was in, but Duan Hongyu hesitated for a while and still opened a video at random.
The military system was supported by the super light computer, although the number of videos was huge, each video had a 3D projection for detailed data recording.
The second after Duan Hengye opened the video, the space he was in suddenly changed from the starship lounge to the armor’s operation room. The hero of the video he opened was an ordinary armor warrior of the empire, and the armor that the other party was operating was the “East Tea” that Duan Hengye had talked about in class today.
Accompanying the image was an ear-piercing noise, although the system had automatically adjusted the background sound to an acceptable decibel level, when the sound suddenly rang out, Duan Hengye’s eardrums still stung.
Although he had known before that the room wasn’t soundproofed, this was the first time Duan Hengye had intuitively felt the effects of sound on the war. He silently made a note of this, then cast his gaze out the window.
The war had taken a short time, and the node that Duan Hengye had opened was already about to end. From the glaring light that kept flickering outside the window, it could be seen that the war was fierce at this time, and this armor was at the heart of the war.
Although he knew that everything in front of him was a projection, Duan Hengye still couldn’t help but clench his fists. He didn’t know this armor warrior beside him, but the other party’s pained expression and steadfast eyes at this time gave him an incomparable shock ……
Just at this time, Duan Hengye suddenly heard a familiar voice in his ears.
“Attention S92 Sector, retreat now. Do not close the right side shield of the armor.”
It was Meng Jinhuai’s voice! As the direct commander of this war, Meng Jinhuai not only operated the armor to fight but also had to pay attention to and command the battle situation at all times.
From the expression on the soldier’s face and the scene outside the window, it could be seen that the battle situation had reached the most critical juncture, but Meng Jinhuai’s voice was still extremely calm, and no panic could be heard from it.
When he finished saying this, Duan Hengye saw that the armored warrior beside him was also not so tense as far as the eye could see.
Meng Jinhuai just had that kind of magic, he was able to call people 100% trustworthy and was a natural leader.
Perhaps Star Citizens who had become accustomed to various projection devices wouldn’t have much of a reaction, but for Duan Hengye, this perfect video simulation had indeed brought him into the battle. Long after the video was released, Duan Hengye was still excited ……
He rewrote the program again and saw the sight of Meng Jinhuai in his armor.
In Duan Hengye’s usual impression, the commander of war should be hiding behind the scenes. But this wasn’t the case in Star Age warfare, as there was often an insurmountable gulf of strength in the armor pilot because of the presence of spiritual power.
A half-dozen or so, like Meng Jinhuai, who had an SSS-class armor pilot, might be able to stand up to a medium-sized army on the battlefield. So despite his special status as a marshal, he would still personally participate in combat every time.
The Meng Jinhuai in the armor was just like the feeling his words just gave off – calm and powerful. From the view outside the window, it could be seen that the Marshal was located even closer to the heart of the war, but his face didn’t look a bit tense.
Meng Jinhuai pursed his lips and focused his gaze.
Under normal circumstances, Duan Hengye was a very focused work person. But this time, originally holding the “watch the game” mentality to him, he couldn’t help but stick his eyes to Meng Jinhuai’s body……
Whenever he faced him, Meng Jinhuai would always look gentle, but now through this video, Duan Hengye finally saw what his spouse looked like when he was working with all his anger. Although there was no little change in appearance, Meng Jinhuai looked like a different person.
Until the end of the short war, the screen blacked out again, Duan Hengye only realized that he was staring at Meng Jinhuai for such a long time …… and then, the workaholic – Professor Duan found that he did not remember much armor-related questions, his whole brain was only in a constant loop of the same sentence – the same sentence. Meng Jinhuai was so handsome!
“…… “For the first time, Duan Hengye was speechless.
He turned off the video projection, then retreated from inside the military’s system. While watching the video just now, Duan Hengye’s light-computer received quite a few messages.
The few videos shot in class just now had spread throughout the entire Starnet, and taking a look at the huge numbers in the video playback column, Duan Hengye even wondered if the entire Ye Tian Empire had watched it …… Although the video was originally intended to be spread out, when Duan Hengye hastily panned over the comment section and saw a large number of words of praise for himself, he couldn’t help but feel a little uncomfortable.
But so many views still weren’t the point, and Duan Hengye’s light-computer alerted him that Ye Tian Empire’s Marshal Meng Jinhuai had retweeted the video seven minutes ago.
Wait …… Meng Jinhuai had forwarded the video?
These characters were all recognizable separately, but after connecting them together, Duan Hengye was a little confused. With suspicion and curiosity, Duan Hengye clicked on the hint of the halo and then saw an account named “Meng Jinhuai” appear in front of him.
Only then did Duan Hengye finally remember that in the Interstellar Era, everyone had a StarNet account that was bound to their ID. This account was also tied to the social system with a real name, and basically, all interstellar celebrities would use this real name social account to communicate with the public.
Except for the original owner, of course – his account was still blank.
Meng Jinhuai was very busy, and usually only got a redirection every few months – and all of them were also redirections of military department announcements.
So although the marshal also had a social account, the public had already classified him and Duan Hengye as “zombies”.
A little more attention would be paid to the fact that this was the first time that Meng Jinhuai had retweeted someone other than the Ministry of Military Affairs. And after seeing the video, people had a look of “so it’s true”, the relationship between the marshal and Professor Duan was really good!
After suddenly discovering that he had a public social account, Duan Hengye was doubly amazed. He tapped into his homepage – although the content was blank, there were thousands of messages crossing the message board every second.
Out of curiosity, Duan Hengye casually clicked on a few. Then Professor Duan saw that probably because of the default “not online”, the few random messages he grabbed were all very enthusiastic confessions……
Although there was no one around, after seeing the text projected on the huge light screen in front of him, Duan Hengye was still a bit uncomfortable and coughed twice, then turned off the message area.
Probably because the war was over, Duan Hengye’s light computer had received quite a few messages in the past few minutes. After browsing through the Institute’s messages, he opened the LDK-300 system in passing.
In fact, this was just Duan Hengye’s habit, and he wasn’t expecting to see any new news. But after waiting for Duan Hengye to open it, he saw that shortly after he finished recharging, LDK-300 was actually active once again.
Could it be that the AI behind LDK-300 was really a money seeker?
“LDK-300 system prompt.
The drug recovery address you provided is located in the Ye Tian Empire, which is currently at war, so please be safe.”
The prompt the AI sent to Duan Hengye was as boring as a weather forecast in the age of Earth, but Duan Hengye, who was already used to casually chatting with it, was interested. He took a look at his payment record, then sent it another message.
“You really only talk when you recharge?”
At this time, on the other end of the Star River, the starship that had just finished its war replay meeting was still bustling with activity. Sitting on Meng Jinhuai’s right-hand side, Yu Xinlai, who had just been recalled from Tize Star, noticed that the marshal, who was looking at the light computer with a serious face, suddenly couldn’t help but laugh.
What was this? Has the marshal received some good news?
Yu Xinlan, who did not like to conceal her thoughts, was ready to ask Meng Jinhuai.
However, before she could open her mouth, Admiral Dongfang, who was sitting opposite her, clenched his hand into a fist and pretended to cough.
The actor, who was no better than Meng Jinhua, was not a good actor at all. After seeing her colleague’s “performance”, Yu Xinlan couldn’t help but laugh out loud, she took the hovering light-computer in her hand, then walked over to Dongfang’s side and said, “What’s wrong? Why the sudden cough?”
Admiral Dongfang took a glance at Meng Jinhuai who was positively smiling at the light-computer, then looked helplessly at Yu Xinlan and pulled her out of the conference room.
“What’s wrong ah?” After leaving the conference room, Yu Xinlan looked at the other party with a baffled face and said, “You and the marshal are both so strange, is there something you’re hiding from me?”
As a serious admiral, Mr. Dongfang rarely showed such an odd expression, he once again looked down at Yu Xinlan, then patted the other party on the shoulder and said, “You’ll know if you fall in love.” After saying that without waiting for the other party’s reaction, he directly left the place.
Yu Xinlan slowly frowned, she took a moment to look at the marshal inside the room who was inputting information into the light-computer with a smile on his face and then looked at her colleague’s distant back.
“Nah,” unable to figure it out even after thinking for a while, Yu Xinlan simply shrugged her shoulders and said to herself, “Marriage is amazing.”
After saying this, she suddenly looked like she had thought of something in general and turned her body again to look at Meng Jinhuai, and then began to repeatedly chew on the words that had just flashed through her mind.
Marriage is awesome …… Marriage?
At this time, the starship that Duan Hengye was riding on was about to arrive at the institute, and just as the notification of the starship’s impending landing came from the lounge, Duan Hongyu suddenly saw that he had received another alert on his light-computer.
Not long after forwarding the video, Meng Jinhuai even updated his official social status once again. Unlike just now, this time the Marshal had posted non-forwarded content for the first time.
Thanks for trusting Duan Hengye ”
The Lord Marshal had posted a sentiment himself!
Until he stepped off the starship, Duan Hengye was a little dizzy. However, since he was usually too serious, no one around had guessed that Duan Hengye was actually struggling with a Starnet reply right now, rather than any armor world puzzle.
Even in his last life, geeky Duan Hengye was not a person who was good at socializing. So after seeing Meng Jinhuai’s post, he really struggled for a long time whether to reply or not, or how to reply.
Hesitating until the night, the desperate Duan Hengye finally sent a question to that AI-.
“If you have a social account that you almost never go to, and someone is looking for you there, do you still have to pretend you haven’t seen them?”
The AI was worthy of being an AI, and even though even Duan Hengye felt that this question was really a little too strange, the other party still sent an answer to him in an instant.
“LDK-300 system prompt.
It can be complimentary.”
Yes oh! You can like!
So after a few hours of waiting, the interstellar public finally discovered that Professor Duan, who had never logged into his social accounts, was online in the middle of the night on the planet where the institute was located, and then gave a like to the message Meng Jinhuai had just sent.
…… Although the Empire was currently in a tense state of war, this night’s interaction between Duan Hengye and Meng Jinhuai had unknowingly diluted the public’s nervousness. This was the trust brought about by absolute strength.
However, the tension in the Armor Research Institute did not disappear.
In addition to armor design, the Ye Tian Empire’s Armor Research Institute was also responsible for armor monitoring and maintenance. Whenever there was a war over, this place had to rush to remotely deal with many system problems or advise the military’s maintenance staff.
Compared to the design, the maintenance work was slightly simpler, and Duan Hengye rarely interfered. But that didn’t mean that he was laid back.
After calming down, Duan Hengye recalled the video he had watched yesterday and then began to reflect on it.
There were two main types of armor nowadays, one was the mass-produced armor, such as the “Eastern Tea”. The other type was the top of the line armor, which was designed by armor designers for people with mental strength over 90 according to the habits of the user.
There were similarities and differences between these two types of armor.
For example, unlike the mass-produced armor that had been upgraded for the entire generation, the upgrades for the top armor were incomplete for now. For example, the armor Meng Jinhuai was currently piloting was modified by the original owner based on the previous generation, the top armor designed by his father. Although there was also a great improvement over the previous generation, it was still not enough in Duan Hengye’s opinion.
The data of the holographic model of the armor piloted by Meng Jinhuai was huge, and only Duan Hengye in the entire institute had the authority to call it up in its entirety.
The next morning, Duan Hengye opened it up as soon as he arrived at the office, then studied the data therein while marking it on the model.
From frugality to extravagance was easy, from extravagance to frugality was difficult.
Ever since the last time he had piloted the armor himself and discovered the wonders of mental energy, Duan Hengye was somewhat unsatisfied with such raw data analysis. But unfortunately, although he wanted to try to turn on Meng Jinhuai’s armor that was currently ranked number one in the interstellar rankings, he didn’t have the courage to steal the armor badge from the Marshal’s side ……
Although the method was primitive, after a morning’s effort, Duan Hengye had discovered quite a few points for improvement.
Duan Hengye was intent on creating his own new top armor, but the current priority was to once again upgrade this generation of top armor before the new armor was introduced.
The staff noticed that Professor Duan had locked himself up in his office for most of the day, although he would usually forget the time when he was busy. But looking at the closed door, and thinking about the sight of him fainting inside the villa last time, there were still many people who were worried.
At a break time, Su Mingge walked over to Duan Hengye’s office with a cup in his hand, and he took a somewhat exaggerated look at the closed door before asking a person around him, “Is the person still inside?”
The staff member who was asked didn’t return, and after he turned around and saw Su Mingge, he was stunned for a moment before answering, “Yes…yes.”
As the first witness to the fainting incident last time, Su Mingge’s heart jumped a little after seeing the other party’s reaction. But while he was hesitating to ask Duan Hengye on behalf of these staff members who were watching but didn’t dare to knock on the door, the hovering light-computer suddenly received a message.
Duan Hengye called him to the office?
Although Duan Hengye was like a different person lately, he had never actively called Su Mingge to his office. After seeing the news, Professor Su put down the cup of water in his hand. He confirmed those words several times and finally turned around and gently pressed open the silver door of Duan Hengye’s office.
Once he entered, Su Mingge saw the armor model located in the center of the office, then he froze there.
Although he was the vice president of the Ye Tian Empire Armor Research Institute, with Su Mingge’s authority, he could only open the model of this armor’s weapon part.
This was the first time Su Mingge had seen that extremely legendary, silver armor belonging to the Imperial Marshal with his own eyes.
“You …… do you know that I don’t have permission to open this armor model?” Su Mingge was stunned for a moment before he turned suspiciously to look at Duan Hengye. He even wondered if the other party had accidentally forgotten the fact that his authority wasn’t able to bring up the model of this armor.
Unexpectedly, Duan Hengye nodded at him and didn’t turn off the model.
“I have a few questions I’d like to consult you on.” Duan Hengye said with a calm face as he zoomed in on the area he had selected in advance.
“What?” This time, Su Mingge’s expression control was all out of order. He should have heard correctly, right? Duan Hengye wanted to consult with him?
Previously when Duan Hengye was answering other people’s questions, Su Mingge felt that he had changed, but although that change was great, it was barely enough for him to accept it. But today, Duan Hengye had even come to consult him? This matter made Su Mingge feel mystified, and he even wondered in his heart if the person in front of him was possessed by someone.
“…… Are you sure?” Su Mingge had an extremely strange expression on his face, while in his heart he was thinking – Duan Hengye wouldn’t be playing with him, right?
Su Mingge was a person whose face wouldn’t hide anything, and Duan Hengye immediately read the subtext from his expression. After inwardly lamenting how bad his image was in the hearts of his colleagues, Duan Henye still remained calm as he nodded his head and said, “Yes, it’s mainly a few problems with the weapon system. I think you are the person in the institution who has the deepest understanding of this area, so I’ll just interrupt during the break.”
After hearing Duan Hengye’s words, Su Mingge’s mouth didn’t hold back from slightly raising the corners upwards.
Although he didn’t know whether Duan Hengye was intentional or not, the other party’s words of “the person in the courtyard who knows the most about this area” called Su Mingge incredibly helpful – although Su Mingge had some opinions on the issue of upgrading the new generation armor, he still admitted that Duan Hengye had strength. Being praised by the other side was far better than being praised by a thousand people who didn’t know any better.
Su Mingge couldn’t help but move his gaze to the side, and when the happy energy went down, he finally cleared his throat and walked over to the model and said, “Wait a moment for me to take a look at this side of the model.”
Although Su Mingge felt that he had controlled his expression, in Duan Hengye’s eyes, the other party still looked a bit odd at this point. Unable to help it, Duan Hengye sent a question to him, “Professor Su, do you have something to say just now?”
“Well?” Suddenly being asked, Su Mingge was stunned, as a somewhat fast-talking person, after hearing Duan Hengyei’s question, he really reflexively said the sigh that was in his heart just now, “Ah …… I just wanted to ask if you are the same person?”
It was true that it was a mere sigh, or a joke. But the person who heard it had a ghost in his heart. As soon as Su Mingge’s words fell, Duan Hengye felt a cold wind blowing across the back of his neck. Then Su Mingge heard a crunching sound of metal crashing.
After following the sound towards the floor and seeing what was lying there, Su Mingge discovered …… that the original sound just now actually came from the light-computer in Duan Hengye’s hand!
Duan Hengye …… He stripped a part off the light-computer with a single move.
Su Mingge took a look at Duan Hengye, and then took a look at the light-computer in the other party’s hand, which was called “Armor-grade solid”. Duan Hengye was too violent …… he couldn’t help it, Professor Su silently took two steps backward.
