Duan Hengye was really not a person who was good at forgetting, although he knew that the accident would definitely be a very gray memory. Just as Meng Jinhuai said, it was the right choice to completely forget that memory. But the nature of the night, Duan Hengye didn’t deliberately forget, but in the bottom of his heart, he played that memory over and over again, and repeatedly discovered details that he didn’t notice before.
The investigation of the incident in the military department was still ongoing, but now the holiday period had officially ended, Duan Hengye could no longer stay in Southern Star.
That very night, Duan Hengye took a starship back to the Institute. He left very late, but because he had been thinking about things, Duan Hengye on the starship wasn’t sleepy.
The black starship slowly sailed out of the airspace of Southern Star, and Duan Hengye, who had been recalling for half a day but still had nothing to show for it, finally got up from his seat. He went to the window with a slightly irritated mood, and then cast his eyes to the endless darkness of space.
The starship was traveling very fast, and the scene outside the window was still empty, but after a while, planets of all sizes began to fly past the window. The road from Southern Star to the Institute, Duan Hengye didn’t know how many times he had gone through it, so he remembered the planets.
Gently pressing his hand against the transparent window, Duan Hengye gazed at the silent space outside the window. This time the starship passed through a medium-sized planetary belt, although far away, he could see the bright light from the planets’ cities. Compared to other places, the planets here didn’t have psychedelic and beautiful colors, before Duan Hengye also didn’t pay too much attention to it.
But today, because of his desire to distract himself, Duan Hengye began to seriously observe the planetary belt. And he looked and found …… not far away there was only a sporadic bright planet. Its appearance was very inconspicuous, but placed in this pile of prosperous habitation between the planets, it gave a special feeling.
Now Duan Hengye was already a qualified interstellar citizen, after seeing that strange planet, he gently clicked the viewport in front of him. A few seconds later, a row of words suddenly emerged from the window that originally had nothing.
Duan Hengye didn’t bother with the words, he clicked the location of the strange planet on the viewport. Then a light green light appeared on the viewport, the light was scattered at first, but after a few seconds it condensed into a beam, and then scanned the planet not far away that was lightly clicked by Duan Hengye.
This was the starship’s own planet identification and introduction function, after he discovered it, Duan Hengye once liked to click on the planet on the road and read the related introduction. Because of this function, Duan Hengye finally knew a little bit about interstellar geography.
After the scan was over, a light screen rose up beside Duan Hengye. Seeing this, Duan Hengye’s eyes left the viewport and then focused on the light screen.
“Planet: Chengli Star
Belonging to: Ye Tian Empire’s Lord Marshal
Planet nature: special”
The starship had just left the Southern Star not long ago, so nine out of ten of these planets around were marshal-affiliated stars. After seeing the first two lines, Duan Hengye didn’t feel much. It was only the “Planet Nature” after …… that attracted Duan Hengye’s attention.
After discovering this feature, Duan Hengye clicked on many planets, large and small, and then checked its information. In Duan Hengye’s impression, there were not many planets that were marked as “special”. Even the Southern Star, where the Marshal’s residence was located, were abbreviated as “inhabited planets” in the column of planet nature. If he remembered correctly, the only “special planets” he had seen were perhaps the location of the Ye Tian Empire’s Mecha Research Institute and the Mecha Test Flight Star.
If Duan Hengye was still sixty percent curious before, then now after seeing the word “special”, his curiosity immediately went up to one hundred percent. Duan Hengye didn’t hesitate, he clicked on the name of the planet again, and then opened the specific information bar.
…… Duan Hengye originally thought that this would be a mecha-related planet. Before the specific information was opened, he also speculated in his heart that it would be an abandoned experimental planet. But the second after the text appeared, Duan Hengye was completely frozen.
In fact, this planet called Chengli Star had nothing to do with mecha.
This was a planet, but also a very special “mausoleum”. The planet was originally a very ordinary inhabited planet, but because its location wasn’t very good, and the lack of resources, with the development of other planets around, there were fewer and fewer inhabitants here.
This was a very common phenomenon in interstellar migration, and from the information, it showed that as early as a few hundred years ago this planet’s inhabitants was left with only two billion. Two billion was really too small for the interstellar, it was as insignificant as the calendar star itself.
But on such an insignificant planet, there was a war that was recorded in the history of the empire and was incomparably tragic. That war destroyed almost the entire planet, and after the war, the planet was no longer suitable for human habitation. The empire moved most of the population away, and the planet left behind became a huge mausoleum suspended in the universe.
Later, not only the military personnels that died in the war a hundred years ago, some of the Mechas destroyed in the war were also sent up to the Chengli Star. But more than anything else, there were the graves of the warriors who died in the planet.
After seeing that number in the detailed information, Duan Hengye’s scalp couldn’t help but tingle. He had always been aware of the cruelty and danger of war in the interstellar era, but after seeing the number of these graves, Duan Hengye finally had a more intuitive understanding of the matter.
He slowly reached out his hand to turn off the light screen. Not long after, the starship’s cockpit received a special order – Duan Hengye requested that the starship temporarily adjust its course to the vicinity of Star Chengli and circle around for a week.
Not long after receiving Duan Hengye’s message, his assistant Ye Pu, who had been staying elsewhere, came over. He didn’t understand why Duan Hengye suddenly wanted to go to Chengli Star, “Professor Duan, do you have any other requests? Do I need to arrange a landing?”
As Duan Hengye’s personal assistant, apart from the need to keep an eye on his every word and special dynamics in the early stages, Ye Pu had always felt that his job was a little abnormal in its ease. Duan Hengye’s daily life was very simple and his range of activities was small, and as a personal assistant himself, he spent most of the day in a state of having nothing to do.
Although the Chengli Star was special in nature, it was difficult for ordinary people to approach it without special application. But Duan Hengye was after all the director of Ye Tian Empire’s Mecha Research Institute, and it was a very simple matter for him to go to the Star. Suddenly hearing Ye Pu speak, Duan Hengye couldn’t help but freeze for a moment, “Hm?” He didn’t expect that he would suddenly mention the matter of arranging a landing.
Seeing this, the assistant said, “It’s like this, Professor Duan. Because the planet has been semi-abandoned for many years, so some of the infrastructure above has failed to keep up. Now there are only a few staff members resident in the whole planet, the number is really not much, if you go, we have to contact them in advance.”
The top quality starship that Duan Hengye was riding on now was so good that it could reasonably land in any state. It was just that the current Chengli Star was really too desolate, if Duan Hengye went there temporarily, He was afraid that all he would see was an endless wasteland and a city that had been abandoned for years.
Ye Pu didn’t know what Duan Hengye was going to do there, but he thought, in any case, he had to find some of the staff of the planet to receive him.
After hearing Ye Pu’s words, Duan Hengye shook his head and said, “No, no landing.” At this moment, the starship had already changed its course and began to fly in the direction of Star Chengli. Duan Hengye said, “I’ll just take a closer look.”
“Okay.” After saying that Ye Pu didn’t leave, he stood beside Duan Hengye and began to introduce the planet to the other. Unlike the data listed in the information column, what Ye Pu told was more like a “story”. Along with the assistant’s narration, the huge starship finally flew over the planet Chengli.
Now the starship was located in the night hemisphere of the planet Chengli, because there were almost no people living on it, the planet was pitch black. Slowly the starship lowered its altitude again, along with the light of the starship’s lower lights, Duan Hengye was finally able to see clearly the appearance of the Chengli Star.
At this time the starship was flying over a huge abandoned city ruins, the city was framed a hundred years ago. As a planet with an underdeveloped economy, the buildings were generally not high, plus it had been abandoned, everything here inexplicably gave Duan Hengye a sense of familiarity.
It felt a little earthy, but such a technological architectural style and desolation was rare on earth.
Also standing by the window, Ye Pu felt different, although he was very familiar with the history of the planet, before that, Ye Pu had never been to the Chengli Star. With the gradual approach of the starship, Ye Pu didn’t know when to stop his narrative, and then couldn’t help but stare at the ground.
The starship finally flew over the city, and then slowly came to the planet’s daytime hemisphere. At this time they could finally see clearly that there was one mecha after another standing in the wasteland beneath their feet.
“This is ……” Although he knew before that Star Chengli was also a “mecha graveyard”, but after seeing the scene under his feet with his own eyes, Ye Pu still couldn’t help but murmur.
Although Duan Hengey didn’t know much about the history of this place, as a mecha researcher, he knew every mecha below. Most of the ones that could be sent up to the Chengli Star were mechas that were so badly destroyed that they could no longer be repaired. However, even if some of them only had a little frame left, Duan Hengye was still able to accurately tell its model number and its service era.
Duan Hengye rarely said so much, but Ye Pu could feel that although Professor Duan had more words, his mood was dropping little by little. Mr. Assistant opened his mouth, but didn’t know what to say. He didn’t know how long it took, but Duan Hengye finally left the viewport, and he turned to the assistant and said, “Okay. Let’s go back to the research institute.” After hearing Duan Hengye’s words, Ye Pu couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief as he nodded towards Duan Hengye, and then wanted to open his light computer to send out a return notification.
But at this time, Ye Pu saw Duan Hengye turn around once again and sigh towards the scene outside the window, then said to himself, “Technology and mecha, will it bring peace or destruction to the stars?”
Ye Pu heard Duan Hengye’s words, but he also understood that this sentence was not Duan Hengye asking him, but asking himself. As the director of the Mecha Research Institute, although Duan Hengye didn’t have to face the war directly, perhaps he had more considerations about the war than any other person on the interstellar.
After so many days, the test flight of the Mecha “Southern Star” finally officially ended. From the initial single flight test to the later flight test in teams, ‘Southern Star” had been performing well, and all the values had reached the mass production standards.
After all, the situation in the empire wasn’t exactly peaceful, so right after the last test flight mission was over, the mass production of the mechas was finally on the agenda.
It was only at this time that Duan Hengye realized that the real trouble seemed to have finally arrived ……
At 10:30 a.m., Su Mingge, the vice president of the Mecha Research Institute, walked into Duan Hengye office with his light computer.
“President Duan, this is the information of all the organisations that have the ability to produce the external insulation layer of mechas, will you take a look?” Su Mingge asked as he entered the door and opened his light computer.
As soon as his words fell, a pile of dense characters instantly appeared in Duan Hengye’s eyes. Miraculously, as a person who didn’t even feel dull and bored when looking at the backend programs of Starnet, at this time, facing these institutional information, Duan Hengye’s head started to get dizzy.
After trying to look at it for a while, Duan Hengye moved his eyes away from the light computer. After seeing Duan Hengye’s unconcealed “painful” look, Su Mingge finally couldn’t hold back his laugh and sat down.
“Is it hard to choose?” Su Mingge asked knowingly.
Duan Hengye once again tried to look, and then silently nodded his head.
In fact, in his previous life, Duan Hengye had faced a similar scene. As a member of an ancient martial arts family, the Duan family didn’t choose to be completely secluded after arriving in modern times. On top of continuing to inherit ancient martial arts, they also had many business industries. As the youngest son of the family, Duan Hengye wasn’t obliged to inherit the family business, but the elders of the family tried to make him take these jobs.
But the amazing thing was, as a person who could look at those boring experimental data all day long with great interest. Once faced with the work in the shopping mall, Duan Hengye always couldn’t help but get tired.
He didn’t think that now that he had obviously transmigrated and he had become the director of the research institute, how come he still had to look at these things?
Although it couldn’t be seen, when it came to age alone, Su Mingge was actually quite a bit older than Duan Hengye. Because of his love for his profession and daily blank facial expression, Su Mingge almost never remembered – Duan Hengye was actually still a “child”.
But now, after seeing the other party’s obviously torn and distressed look, Su Mingge not only finally discovered that Duan Hengye had a childish, youthful side, and was also a little cute.
Su Mingge couldn’t help but feel good, he pulled the stool a little closer, and started to introduce all the organisations that applied for the production of external insulation layer for mechas to Duan Hengye one by one.
“…… These are the ones that have cooperated with the research institute before, you can focus on them.” Su Mingge said while outlining them to Duan Hengye on the light screen. And after hearing Su Mingge’s words, Duan Hengye also began to listen like a serious student, he opened his light computer, and ticked on it while recording Su Mingge’s introduction.
But soon Duan Hengye found that manually ticking the key points and then typing them in with the virtual keyboard was really a bit inconvenient and greatly reduced the speed. So just as Su Mingge introduced another, Duan Hengye adjusted the direction of the light screen and then took out a virtual pen that could be used to take notes on the light screen.
After all, coming from the Earth era, compared to handwriting, Duan Hengye’s typing speed waa still a little slower.
Just as Duan Hengye began to record carefully, Su Mingge couldn’t help but drop his eyes from his light screen to Duan Hengye’s hands. In this day and age, although writing was still a compulsory course for students, for convenience’s sake, people rarely wrote
with their hands at work on weekdays.
Especially for people like Su Mingge, who weren’t very interested in writing and hadn’t written on his own for many years after graduation …… it wasn’t an exaggeration to say that his words had degenerated to the level of elementary school students.
Now seeing that Duan Hengye, in order to move faster, began to write the records, Su Mingge couldn’t help but move closer to observe Duan Hengye’s actions.
There were many people in the interstellar world who didn’t write on a daily basis, but practiced their signatures. Su Mingge looked down and found that, unlike those who only practiced individual words, Duan Hengye had a firm grasp of all the words, and never paused in his strokes.
The most important thing was that Duan Hengye’s writing was particularly good-looking!
Looking at it, Su Mingge actually forgot about what he was going to do. And hearing that Su Mingge stopped speaking, Duan Hengye finally felt a little off, he looked up at Su Mingge, and then asked: “What is it?”
“Nothing ……” Su Mingge shook his head and said, “I didn’t expect your writing to be quite nice.” He praised him from the bottom of his heart. In fact, now that the discussion related to the external insulation layer was almost over, Su Mingge suddenly looked at the light screen with considerable interest then said to Duan Hengye, “Wait for me, I’ll go get something.”
Although he didn’t understand what Su Mingge was going to do, after the other side finished, Duan Hengye still nodded and watched him leave, and then continued to study the information on the light computer that Su Mingge had just summarised.
After a few more minutes, Su Mingge finally reentered Duan Hengye’s office, and he was holding two things that Duan Hengye was once incredibly familiar with, but hadn’t seen in a long time ……
Paper and a pen.
“What are you doing?” Duan Hengye couldn’t help but ask.
Su Mingge gently raised his eyebrows and then said, “Write a few words for me on the paper?”
Right in the middle of their conversation, the Institute’s morning work time had ended. Duan Hengye once again glanced at the record on the light computer, and then turned it off. Although he didn’t understand what exactly Su Mingge wanted him to write for jim, this matter was very simple for Duan Hengye. He didn’t ask much, so he took the paper Su Mingge gave him, then Duan Hengye looked up and asked, “What should I write?”
Although Su Mingge didn’t often write himself, the writing tools were the best. After getting it in his hand, Duan Hengye felt that it was a good one, and as a person who had practiced writing for many years, he couldn’t help but feel a little itchy.
Seeing that Duan Hengye agreed so readily, Su Mingge sat back in his chair again. After thinking for a short while he said to Duan Hengye, “Write a poem, I’ll read it to you.”
“Mm.” Duan Hengye lowered his head.
What Su Mingge read was a short poem that was extremely popular and very classic in the interstellar world. Even Duan Hengye had heard it many times since he transmigrated into this world. As Su Mingge read it, Duan Hengye also wrote it down stroke by stroke.
In a few minutes, the poem was written. After seeing the words on the paper, Su Mingge revealed a look of surprise. He took the paper up from the table, and then he took several pictures in a row with his light computer.
“Have you practiced on purpose?” Su Mingge looked at it for a while, and then couldn’t help but look up and ask.
“Hmm.” It had been a long time since he had actually written with a pen and paper, and after finishing the poem Su Mingge read, Duan Hengye continued to scribble randomly on other papers. Seeing that Duan Hengye was fascinated with writing, Su Mingge also stopped disturbing him. And after looking at this place for a while, Su Mingge, who was in a good mood, posted the photo he had just taken to his social account – unlike Duan Hengye, who never posted anything unserious, Su Mingge was very diligent in updating his page and was also quite happy to interact with his fans.
Can anyone guess who wrote this? [picture]”
After posting it, Su Mingge didn’t rush to see everyone’s reaction, but continued back to Duan Hengye’s side. Because of the original author’s laziness, many of the historical backgrounds and cultural common sense of “Dumping Interstellar” were the same as Earth’s China. The ancient poems that Duan Hengye wrote in passing at this time were the same here that everyone had to learn as a child.
Seeing what Duan Hengye had written, Su Mingge first praised it, then casually asked: “By the way, Professor Duan. When you were a child, did you learn to write with a brush in addition to penmanship? I think the poem you’re writing now would definitely have more feeling if you replaced it with brush writing.”
Coming from a family of ancient martial arts, how could Duan Hengye not know how to write with a brush. After he heard Su Mingge’s words, he casually nodded and said, “I’ve learned it, but I haven’t written it for a long time.”
Hearing Duan Hengye’s words, Su Mingge’s eyes suddenly widened, and seeing that he didn’t speak for a while, Duan Hengye finally looked up, “What’s wrong?”
“Wait for me,” Su Mingge smiled at Duan Hengye, and then said to him, “I have brushes in my office.”
“…… “At this moment, Duan Hengye really wanted to ask Su Mingge if his vice president’s office was a grocery store ……
