Hidden corner Chapter :- 18

Chapter 18: Collaboration IV (Thank You, Not the Leader of the Xu Xian Alliance)

After activating the first Flower God position, it seemed that even the Evil Flowers underwent new changes. In detail, there was a more detailed explanation of the flower language ability.

Li Chengyi was speechless, raising his hand to change to another flower.

The flower next to the peony was a small blue flower, whose petals looked like a knotted scarf, blue on the outside and pale yellow inside, with a bit of purple in the center petals.

‘Blue Iris: Also known as the Blue Butterfly, Flat Bamboo Flower, resistant to cold, blossoms from April to May, effective in dispelling wind and dampness, detoxification, anti-inflammatory, promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis.’

‘Flower language: Admiration. (When wearing the flower scale clothes in the presence of someone you admire, a 200% special bonus is available. Please note:

1. When the person you admire is female, the special bonus applies to endurance stamina.

2. When the person you admire is male, the bonus applies to muscle girth and strength.

3. When the person you admire is of another gender, the bonus applies to physical recovery.)’

‘Flower Scale Clothes: Insufficient Flower God positions, please activate.’

Li Chengyi’s mouth twitched slightly; this flower language ability was strong.

Really strong.

Just not suitable for ordinary people.

Releasing his hand, he reached towards another cluster of white flowers crowded together.

Each flower had only four petals, forming a cross shape, with black and yellow stamens. Every three flowers were squeezed together, facing the sunlight, resembling triplets.

‘Unnamed Flower: Blooms from April to May, often grows in places with ample sunlight, with an extremely long root and egg-shaped nodules that can be used as medicine. Benefits include stabilizing fetuses, enriching qi, drying dampness, and promoting water flow.’

‘Flower language: Healing wounds. (Can quickly heal light physical injuries and has a certain effect on psychological trauma.)’

The available flower scale clothes remained unchanged, still unable to be activated.

Li Chengyi released his hand. He had never seen this flower before; there was no information in the Evil Flowers collection, but he still could detect the flower language ability, which gave him a new idea.

‘That is to say, if I go to the wilderness, once the second Moon Flower God position is activated, I might find stronger flower language abilities from various unnamed and undiscovered flowers by humans!’

Of course, this was probably a matter for the distant future. He hadn’t even tried all the artificial flowers in many places in the city.

On the roadside, riverbank, in the weeds, there might be some unknown little flowers to be found by luck, possibly yielding some good flower languages.

‘But the current problem is, how can I fully develop the first Flower God position?’

At this moment, Li Chengyi’s thoughts finally fell on the evolutionary aspect of the Wisteria Flower.

As his gaze fell on the back of his right hand, within the ring of the Evil Flower corresponding to the filled Wisteria Flower pattern, a hint of purple light suddenly shone.

Then, a stream of information flowed into his mind, which was various data about the Wisteria Flower.

Among them, the number of evolutions showed as twice.

‘Evolution requires other varieties of the same category of Wisteria Flower and the requirements are very precise. Random chances probably won’t expedite the evolution. Seems like visiting a botanical garden or a large florist is necessary.’

He quickly formed a plan in his mind.

The botanical garden has a wide variety of flowers, making it the first choice, while the large florist is the second option, especially since Wisteria Flowers aren’t particularly valuable horticultural plants.

Of course, the best method would still be to specifically buy seeds online and grow them himself!

But that would take too long.

Li Chengyi frowned, stood up quickly, and took out his phone to open the largest shopping app—Quick Select.

Closing a bunch of automatically popped-up promotional ads, he typed in Wisteria Flower in the search bar.

Clicking search.

A list of search results for Wisteria Flowers was displayed.

‘Wisteria Flower saplings, survival guaranteed.’

‘Wisteria Flower potted plants with leaves delivered.’

‘Wisteria Flower seeds, buy two get one free, climbing and blooming throughout the seasons.’

Lines of promotional ads for Wisteria Flowers, even including wholesale.

‘It seems I’m still lacking money.’ If he had a lot of money, he could completely buy ready-made flowers to stack at home. Or even create his own small garden.

While thinking, Li Chengyi was about to continue his search for Wisteria Flower variants.

Suddenly, an unsaved strange call came in.

The phone screen immediately turned red, and a line of carrier reminder text appeared.

‘The incoming call has been marked as a sales promotion by 367 people, please answer with caution.’

Li Chengyi was about to hang up when the red on the screen suddenly turned green, and the text changed to new content.

‘Secure call, please beware of scams.’

Then, with a snap, the phone automatically answered before he could press the button.

“Hello, hello, can you hear me?” The voice of Sindra came from the handset.

Li Chengyi’s heart skipped a beat, he quickly picked up the phone, looked around to make sure no one was paying attention, and then placed the phone close to his ear, clutching it tightly.

“I can hear you, go ahead.” He lowered his voice.

“Can you not be so obvious? Just relax, relax.” Sindra sounded somewhat helpless on the phone.

“Do I seem very nervous?” Li Chengyi asked back.

“Yes, you are very tense, forget it, come to this address, I’m waiting for you here, someone will specially meet you downstairs.” Sindra replied, “The information and news you want can be found here.”

“What address?”

“776 West Kangjie Street, New Century Building, enter the lobby on the first floor, someone will receive you. The company’s name is Hongjin Biopharmaceutical Company.”

“There’s even a professional company? West Kangjie Street is a bustling commercial area, right?” Li Chengyi was surprised to say, his predecessor had just applied to a company there not so long ago, almost making it to the interview phase, so he remembered it very well.

After all, private enterprises in this era that wouldn’t disdain his plant care major were really few.

“Hmm, busier places are also safer, everyone thinks so.” Sindra said with a meaningful remark.

The call automatically disconnected.

Li Chengyi put away his phone, took a long breath, and without hesitation, headed straight out of the park.

First, he would learn more about the Dead End.

No matter what Sindra’s ultimate goal was, at least his understanding of the Dead End and his technology in mobile communications far exceeded that of an ordinary college graduate.

Since the location was in the busiest commercial district center, he decided to go and check it out first.

After all, nobody would dare to make trouble in the busiest commercial street.

He left the park and waited at the bus stop for a while before boarding a bus heading to the city center’s West Kangjie Street.

Standing in the bus, the scenery outside the window gradually changed from the quiet suburbs to bustling activities.

The road gradually became crowded.

A continuous horn sounded from all directions.

People kept boarding and disembarking the bus, and soon Li Chengyi also found a seat and quickly took it.

The blue hardened plastic seat was cool, and the numerous holes drilled underneath made it even cooler.

Li Chengyi leaned back in the seat, comfortably stretching his spine, trying to make his sore muscles as comfortable as possible.

He turned his face to look out the window.

On the left were grey-white residential high-rises, about ten floors high, with a row of green evergreen trees planted downstairs.

Below the trees was a bike path, with people of various colors biking ahead to work or take their kids, moving in the same direction as the bus.

“In about four hundred and fifty meters ahead, entering the roundabout.”

A gentle electronic female voice suddenly prompted inside the bus.

Li Chengyi withdrew his gaze and looked inside the bus.

The bus had two rows of seats, ten on the left and twelve on the right, with no driver, being an unmanned vehicle.

The entire carriage was filled with a faint smell of disinfectant, somewhat pungent.

A few standing school students in uniforms coughed from time to time, seemingly irritated by the smell.

Li Chengyi noticed that most people in the carriage would occasionally look down at their phones.

But a few people were somewhat abnormal.

These few people comfortably leaned back in their seats or leaned against any part of the bus they could rest on, then waved one hand back and forth in front of them, making various gestures.

He was somewhat puzzled but soon found the corresponding device from his predecessor’s memory—Augmented Reality Glasses.

He noticed that these few people were all wearing thin brown glasses on their faces. He guessed that must be the so-called Augmented Reality Glasses.

‘No wonder this world seems technologically advanced online and in books, but you can’t see it in everyday life.’

Li Chengyi curiously observed those wearing the Augmented Reality Glasses, watching their various actions.

Soon, the bus slowly turned and climbed the slope, entering the roundabout interchange.

After watching those people for a while, a wave of tiredness surged, and Li Chengyi realized his overexerted body still needed a lot of time to recover. He checked the outside situation.

At this point, after the bus entered the interchange, it turned around, only the silver barrier wall five or six meters high was visible on both sides.

With no scenery to pass the time, he simply shifted his body, adjusted his phone to vibrate alert, and started to rest his eyes.

His phone would vibrate automatically when he reached his stop.

Time slowly passed.

One minute, two minutes, five minutes, ten minutes.


A strong vibration brought Li Chengyi back from his drowsy state.

He opened his eyes wide, saw the bus door opening just in time, quickly got up, and along with the rest of the passengers, got off the bus.

On the platform outside the bus, a few grandpas holding vegetable bags hurriedly squeezed past Li Chengyi to board the bus.

“I’ll pay.”

“Why should you? I’ll do it.”

“Quit being polite, I’ll pay this time, and you can next time. That’s settled!”

The grandpas’ squabbling voices emerged from behind, and Li Chengyi’s initially tense nerves were also gradually soothed by this everyday market atmosphere, relaxing him.

He looked around.

On one side of the platform stood a sign: West Kangjie Road·Xichuan Road Station.

The sign also had an electronic screen continuously cycling through the bus routes that would arrive soon.

He looked away and walked a few steps to the left before clearly seeing where he was standing.

He was at a crossroads, with a zebra crossing right next to the platform, and bustling pedestrian traffic moving back and forth.

Crossing the zebra crossing, he saw a row of grey-white buildings on the opposite side of the road.

Among them, a silver building stood out from the crowd, with the highest number of floors, and the rooftop was marked with large letters in red metal cutouts: New Century Leisure and Life Plaza.

“. That’s really eye-catching.” Li Chengyi immediately spotted his destination.

This building, in his predecessor’s memory, was a landmark in Suoyang City built when he was very young.

If it weren’t for the fact that in recent years, it had been overshadowed by other high-end malls that emerged, attracting shoppers, the New Century would still be Suoyang’s top leisure and consumption center.

He steadied his mind, lifted his foot, and stepped onto the zebra crossing, blending with the crowd heading towards that tallest building.
