Although his mind was full of doubts, Duan Hengye’s thoughts only ran for a short time. The internal structure of this top-grade armor was too tempting for him, so Duan Hengye immediately focused his attention and started to feel its internal system under the guidance of Meng Jinhuai’s spiritual power.
Research based on models and data couldn’t be compared to direct investigation by spiritual power. Compared to the last intense experiment, Duan Hengye also had more experience. And because today’s exploration was guided by the marshal himself, without the interference of the external environment, Duan Hengye’s concentration was even higher.
It was well known that Duan Hengye was a genius in armor. Not long ago, he was struggling with the fact that only by advancing three generations on the original foundation of the armor, could it be combined with Meng Jinhuai’s spiritual power. But now as he examined the huge armor, Duan Hengye’s heart produced countless new ideas about the design of the armor.
Duan Hengye thought, perhaps it wasn’t a difficult task to complete. It wasn’t a simple idea, but rather, a preconception of the work to be done soon made up of countless ideas in his mind.
After the L09 mode ended, Meng Jinhuai slowly withdrew his mental energy. He saw that Duan Hengye no longer spoke as if he was in deep thought, so he didn’t talk to the other party again, and the cockpit fell silent. The huge silvery-white armor slowly lifted up into the air, and then turned around and flew towards the direction of the southern star.
Because of the high concentration, in Duan Hengye’s own feeling, it seemed like only a moment of time had passed. But after the armor landed on the familiar docking pad on Southern Star, he realized that a whole day had passed.
The docking pad was completely empty during the day, and the silvery-white armor looked more and more sacred in the dark night. It should be cold, but it was illuminated by the bright light of the night with a gentle meaning.
After stepping down from the armor, Duan Hengye couldn’t help but look back at it. Then he saw that this apparently clean and beautiful armor was covered with small and large battle scars.
After noticing Duan Hengye’s eyes, Meng Jinhuai also looked back at the armor, and when he saw this, he casually said to Duan Hengye: “That’s left over from the war with the Lai Sheng Alliance a few days ago, and I haven’t had time to repaint it yet.”
While the war was going on, the attendant maintenance personnel would catch up on armor repairs after each battle was over. However, because of the time crunch, the repairs at that time only focused on functional recovery, and the exterior damage of the armor could still be seen.
This was the first time that Duan Hengye saw an armor that hadn’t had time to be repainted, and its surface was a bit mottled. Under the silver-white light of the Nanwei Star, the lines of the armor were also softened. But in spite of this, looking at the armor that was quietly parked here, Duan Hengye still felt that he could vaguely see a huge fire in the stars, and it was hard to dodge the cannon fire.
Meng Jinhuai took out the stamp-shaped key, and then the huge silver-white armor disappeared in front of Duan Hengye’s eyes.
Without the cover of the armor, the cool breeze of the night blew from the side, and Duan Hengye couldn’t help but shrink a bit, then gathered his collar. Meng Jinhuai slowly walked to his side and quietly blocked the wind for him. The two of them boarded the hovercraft side by side for the return trip, the journey quiet.
After returning to the marshal’s residence, Duan Hengye remembered with hindsight that he hadn’t looked at the light computer all day today. It wasn’t like a cell phone in the Earth era, the light computer was extremely important in interstellar life, and a day without looking at the light computer was almost unthinkable here.
It was as if Meng Jinhua had forgotten that they hadn’t shared the same bedroom before. It was clear that they were no longer on the lookout for each other like before, but the couple, who seemed so sweet to the outside world, were still back to their separate lives.
Duan Hengye himself was very satisfied with this, ……
When he returned to the bedroom, he took out his light computer. Then Duan Hengye saw that all the unprocessed messages accumulated this day appeared in front of his eyes at the same time.
In addition to the messages from the research institute and An Luo, there was also a message from the royal family.
It was a message that Duan Hengye saw as a warning – the other party asked him to show sincerity and not to forget his own identity.
Yeah, don’t forget your own identity …… Ye Tian Empire’s royal family sent him to Meng Jinhuai’s side as an undercover agent.
Duan Hengye slowly put down his light computer. Although he had already told Meng Jinhuai about his identity as an undercover agent, from the royal family’s side, his identity was still a huge one that could cause trouble at any time.
After looking at the words on the light computer, Professor Duan thought for a while and sat down at the edge of the table to open the background of his light computer. He thought it was time to deal with the connection between the original owner and the royal family.
In the interstellar era, all the information of every person since birth was recorded by the star network. Erasing the past sometimes seemed like a very complicated thing, but sometimes …… was a very simple thing for some people.
Duan Hengye returned to the Southern Provinces this time because of the military banquet. After a short stay, he returned to the institute once again.
This time, the stars seemed to be calm for a long time. During this period, the research work of the entire Ye Tian Empire Armor Research Institute was finally on track, and Duan Hengye’s personal research on the new generation of common mass-produced armor was also nearing completion.
Also during this period of time, Professor Duan got used to the life of running between the research institute and the University of An Luo. Colleagues at the Research Institute and students at An Luo University also got used to the magical scenes that Marshal Meng Jinhuai occasionally appeared in front of them. …….
Although the Ye Tian Imperial Armor Research Institute had been working closely with the Ministry of Military Affairs, Meng Jinhuai had only been here once or twice before, and all of them were to attend events. But now Meng Jinhuai came here …… whenever he passed by the planet where the institute was located. The discerning people could see what he was doing here.
From the initial shock of seeing the dimensional wall collapse, to now almost seeing Meng Jinhua as a member of the Institute, the heart capacity of the Institute’s staff was becoming stronger and stronger.
Just as the interstellar situation was stabilizing day by day, a major event that people had almost forgotten was finally brought up again.
The Southern Star officially announced that the results of the investigation into the attack on the Tize had been finalized.
Because he didn’t pay special attention to this matter, Duan Hengye wasn’t informed in advance. When he saw the news, he was sitting alone in his residence in the research institute, watching the interstellar news and eating dinner at the same time.
After hearing the host’s words, Meng Jinhua couldn’t help but sit up straight, then slowly put down his chopsticks. Now that Duan Hengye had been here for some time, he already had his own understanding of the interstellar situation. So after seeing the news, Duan Hengye noticed at once that the final results of the investigation mentioned in the news were released by the southern star, rather than a joint statement with the royal family.
This was a signal worth paying attention to.
Many people noticed that during this investigation that lasted for several months, the Ye Tian royal family, which had never had much of a presence before, suddenly became high-profile. From time to time, they would send out news, and they always had people guarding the planet Tize.
But now the final result was sent out by Southern Star alone, and it didn’t look like the royal family had anything to do with it. Was this a deliberate attempt to …… not to give face to the other side?
After noticing this on the news, many people, not just Duan Hengye, had such doubts in their hearts.
But soon, everyone’s attention was drawn away by the content of the news bulletin.
The host of the news program disappeared from the picture, and then Admiral Dongfang suddenly appeared. Duan Hengye saw that Dongfang Hewen was wearing a black military uniform full of medals, and his expression was extremely serious, so he looked very murderous. ……
Duan Hengye and Dongfang Hewen actually didn’t have a lot of contact with each other in reality, especially after Meng Jinhuai started to come to the institute frequently recently, and he gradually became familiar with the two generals. Duan Hengye had never seen Dongfang Hewen show such a serious expression before, so he couldn’t help but be nervous by the atmosphere.
If Duan Hengye’s heart was slowly hanging up at this moment, then immediately afterward, Dongfang Hewen’s words made him even more apprehensive.
In the news, Admiral Dongfang said that after several months of investigation by the military department, the mastermind behind the Tize Star incident had been uncovered by them. The event was not simply planned by a remnant of the Tize Star, but also behind it, was the …… Lai Sheng Alliance.
As Dongfang Hewen spoke, Duan Hengye also connected the two events bit by bit.
The Lai Sheng Alliance had been funding the independent forces on the planet Tize, and while Meng Jinhuai was on Tize, they finally sent an assassin to attack him.
The Lai Sheng Alliance’s original plan was good, as they thought that even if Meng Jinhuai was not killed or seriously injured, Ye Tian Empire would go into panic for a while. Especially the planet Tize, which was very close to the Alliance, might be able to take advantage of the chaos and become independent, or be annexed by the Alliance.
But unfortunately, the appearance of Duan Hengye created a butterfly effect.
People in the interstellar age were generally not good at close combat, and the lethality of weapons was extremely great. If Duan Hengye hadn’t popped out of nowhere to join the fray, the killers would never have been left alive, or only a few would have survived – which was what the original book mentioned.
But who knew that Duan Hengye really didn’t have the guts to kill and was particularly good at fighting …… After Duan Hengye showed up, not only were the survivors left …… but a whole bunch of them as well. The Lai Sheng Alliance was different from the Ye Tian Empire in their leadership. The change of leadership was extremely fast, and if the incident was revealed, the person who planned it would definitely be impeached and step down. Therefore, the Lai Sheng Alliance, who originally did not want to start the war so early, thought about it for a while, and finally brought forward the schedule for the war.
After reading the news, the book transmigrator – Duan Hengye sat at the dining table in silence for a long time.
Duan Hengye had wondered more than once how he, the “intruder”, would disrupt the course of interstellar history. But today, when this answer was put in front of him, Duan Hengye found himself more shocked than he thought.
Although the title of “Director of the Armor Research Institute” was very big, Duan Hengye was still an ordinary person psychologically. He was afraid of war and feared for lives, so when his actions were linked to a real war, Duan Hengye’s heart couldn’t help but sink. ……
In order to end the scuffle, then a suppressive armor must be born. Duan Hengye thought that his work schedule should probably be accelerated.
As a qualified professor, Duan Hengye was very busy in the research institute, but he didn’t miss anything in An Luo.
When he arrived in An Luo this week according to his plan, he found that the school was once again bustling with activity. After a period of time, Duan Hengye had become familiar with the teachers in the armor department who often hand over the work with him. After slowly discovering that he wasn’t as cold as they thought, the teachers here would often take time to consult with Duan Hengye.
While waiting for class in the lounge, one teacher came to consult with Duan Hengye, and after solving the other’s problem, Duan Hengye suddenly remembered the lively scene in the school today.
The teacher, who was about to leave, saw that Duan Hengye raised his head and looked out of the window in confusion, then asked him, “Is there any activity in An Luo today?” Although Duan Hengye didn’t like to participate in activities when he was in college last time, he was always happy to feel it.
If something big happens in school, Duan Hengye would always temporarily end his life between the lab and the dormitory, and then walk around the campus a few times to feel the lively atmosphere.
Duan Hengye looked slightly curious and bright-eyed when he asked questions. Although he didn’t intentionally show any emotion, after seeing Duan Hengye’s appearance, the teacher’s earlobes reddened involuntarily. He replied nervously: “Uh …… Yes, but it’s not related to our department. There’s an award ceremony for pharmacy majors in An Luo these days, it’s an important event in the industry.”
Duan Hengye instantly remembered a person, that was, Lan Jingchi.
Just like before, recently Lan Jingchi would often send Duan Hengye some information related to his life and school. If Duan Hengye didn’t remember correctly, he seemed to have mentioned that he wrote a very satisfying thesis.
…… Probably because the recipient was Duan Hengye, although Lan Jingchi’s grades had recently reached the first place in his major, he had never talked about his “grades” in an excited tone, let alone “achievements”. So it wasn’t until the teacher told Duan Hengye that An Luo was holding an event for pharmacy majors, that Duan Hengye finally recalled an episode that had to do with Lan Jingchi.
It was mentioned in “Dumping Interstellar” that Lan Jingchi’s “genius” name was first revealed because of a thesis. The paper was successfully published in one of the most authoritative journals in the industry, but it did not receive the attention it deserved at first. It wasn’t until after a conference held at the University of An Luo that his fame began to grow day by day.
If he hadn’t asked today, he would have missed the event.
Although Duan Hengye was extremely busy lately, he decided to push his schedule back a bit to make time for the award ceremony after hearing the teacher’s speech about the pharmacy-related conference.
The teacher only saw that Duan Hengye thought for a moment and then say to him, “I’m very interested in this event, I don’t know if I have the chance to participate in it.”
Duan Hengye …… was even staying in An Luo for the event?
Although not a school leader, after hearing the other party’s words, the staff member nodded and said, “Of course, I’ll go tell the teacher in charge of this event right now.”
Upon hearing the words, Duan Hengye nodded towards him and said, “Thank you.”
After hearing this conversation, the assistant who had been following Duan Hengye recently also silently retreated to the back. He began to update Duan Hengye’s schedule on his light computer and then sent the message to the Academy and Southern Star as usual.
This award ceremony was held every three years to honor scientists who had achieved significant research in the field of pharmacy in the last three years. Although it was not comparable to the armor department, the pharmacy program at An Luo. was still famous among the stars. Therefore, every few years, the conference would return to the University of An Luo.
Just like the last Armor Research Conference, the pharmacy experts had gathered on the campus a few days before, which was why Duan Hengye felt that An Luo was more crowded than ever when he came here.
Duan Hengye’s decision was a little abrupt, and to avoid any unnecessary trouble, An Luo didn’t notify anyone in advance that he would be in the audience.
The next morning, according to the previous schedule, Duan Hengye should have been sitting on the starship returning to the Armor Research Institute. Although he knew in his heart that his achievement was still insignificant in front of Duan Hengye, before the award ceremony started, Lan Jingchi struggled a bit and finally sent a message to Duan Hengye, informing him in advance that he was one of the candidates for the award.
Lan Jingchi originally thought that he would receive Duan Hengye’s indifferent and encouraging reply, but he didn’t expect that soon after the message was sent, the other party would tell him – he already knew about it and would attend the event later on!
Duan Hengye had always felt that Lan Jingchi was a very mature teenager. But today, not long after informing him that he would be attending the conference, he finally received a message on his light computer that matched his age perfectly.
Lan Jingchi sent an extremely excited crying emoji to Duan Hengye.
Although he didn’t reply again, after seeing this expression, Duan Hengye’s mood couldn’t help but become much better.
Today was a spur of the moment event, but the relevant staff of the military department still quickly prepared a suitable outfit for Duan Hengye. It was an ink-blue suit with a simple design and excellent tailoring, and although it was low-key in style, it looked very elegant when worn.
Unlike the last Mecha Conference, the Pharmacy Award Ceremony was held in another auditorium of the school. Half of the auditorium was made of transparent, glass-like material that allowed for excellent lighting. There were two doors at the front and back of the auditorium, and the largest door was the one where students and guests entered.
The head of the school and Duan Hengye himself knew that no matter what he did, his arrival would never be associated with the word “low-key”. It would be dangerous to go through the front door like ordinary guests. So after discussion, the school decided to ask Duan Hengye to enter through the smaller door in the auditorium, which was facing the first row of guests and must pass by the center of the stage.
The award ceremony was about to start in two minutes, and the guests and students saw that the host of the event had even stood on the stage earlier. Just when everyone was wondering if the timing was wrong, the host said, “First of all, please allow me to greet you all on behalf of the award ceremony and the University of An Luo. …… As you must have noticed, the event has not officially started yet.” At this point, the host paused for a moment, and without looking at the other door in the auditorium, he then said, “I’m going on stage early in order to introduce a special guest for this event.”
Hearing this, the auditorium immediately fell silent. As the host’s eyes signaled, they all turned their attention to the doorway together.
“This guest is not an expert in the field of pharmacy, but he is also very concerned about this industry, so he is here today as a special guest.” After saying this, the silver door that had been closed all along on one side finally opened slowly, and after hearing the introduction of the other, many people on the scene also began to whisper and speculate about the identity of this mysterious audience.
He had the status of being able to open the conference two minutes earlier for special introductions, but he was not an expert in the field of pharmacy. So who could it be? ……
Duan Hengye was standing outside the door and heard the host’s description of him. Unlike the majority of guests who only paid attention to the content of the speech and wanted to extract important information from it, Duan Hengye was able to hear the uncontrollable excitement in the words of the other …… In his opinion, it was really odd to be introduced in such a grand manner.
At this time, the door had been opened, and under the common gaze of countless eyes, Duan Hengye walked in alone.
It was now the morning on An Luo’s planet, and as soon as Duan Hengye entered the door, a large patch of warm sunlight slanted over from his side. For a moment, Duan Hengye’s entire body was coated with a layer of gold by the sunlight, which looked like an extremely divine and warm beauty.
No one here could have thought that the person who came to this meeting today would be Duan Hengye. The moment he entered the door, all the original whispers stopped, and everyone was dumbfounded at the man at the door.
But this was only one of the surprises of the day. Just after Duan Hengye walked in the door, another even more surprising guest appeared. Not only were the guests surprised, but even Duan Hengye was also surprised.
Hearing the footsteps from behind him, Professor Duan turned around and then saw a familiar figure ……
