Hidden corner Chapter :- 28

Chapter 28: Heading to Part 2

After a short stop at the charging station.

The car was fully charged, and Song Ran bought a bottle of plum drink, threw it into the car, and then went to the restroom with Li Chengyi.

In the restroom, the two stood side by side in front of the urinals.

Li Chengyi unzipped his pants, took it out, and started to pee.

Next to him, Song Ran, who was over two meters tall, also unzipped his pants and took it out.

A burst of rainbow light shimmered, turning the surroundings into a colorful brightness.

“Welcome to the Smart Urinal System, current urine composition analysis beginning,” a gentle female voice announced.

“Urea nitrogen level normal, uric acid slightly high, urinary calcium normal, urinary potassium normal, creatinine normal.”

Li Chengyi dumbfoundedly looked down, seeing not the usual sight.

What he saw was a piece of golden excrement wrapped in colorful lights! “!!??”

Li Chengyi was so shocked that he forgot he was still peeing, staring at Song Ran who calmly shook it off, zipped up his pants, and nonchalantly walked away.

He was still immersed in shock.

‘This guy specifically came over to pee next to me just to show off, right???’

‘And who in the world uses gold as their excrement these days? What happened to his original organs??’

The sound of the toilet flushing snapped Li Chengyi back to reality. He quickly finished peeing, zipped up, and walked out of the restroom.

By then, Song Ran was already waiting by the car.

“Let’s go; it’s fully charged.”

“.Bro, you’re incredible!” Li Chengyi said with a weird expression, giving him a thumbs up as he approached.

The two got into the car and buckled up, looking ahead through the windshield.

Outside the window was a straight black roadway through dense forests.

The road was divided into two by a white line, with vehicles continuously approaching and moving away in the distance.

“Song Bro, that thing of yours…” Li Chengyi couldn’t help but ask.

“Heh.” Song Ran laughed softly, started the car, rolled down the window, and casually spat outside.

“A man, shouldn’t have a weakness.”

He patted Li Chengyi’s shoulder deeply, and then stepped on the gas.

Vroom!

A fierce engine noise roared, the black SUV began to vibrate, and two thick silver metal pipes slowly raised from the back.

Two bright blue streams of air blasted out from the metal tubes.

With a sharp friction sound, the car, like a wild beast breaking free, accelerated and sped forward.

The speedometer jumped from 0 to 180 mph in just two seconds. Ah!!

Li Chengyi wanted to scream, but the wild sound of the vehicle overwhelmed his voice.

For the first time, Song Ran’s face took on a passionate, even somewhat grimace.

He sang an unknown language song, gripping the steering wheel, his whole body trembling.

Gradually, Li Chengyi noticed that the trees on both sides of the car were getting shorter.

He hurriedly looked out the window.

The car’s wheels had retracted, and a pair of black metal wings had unfolded on both sides.

The front of the car also raised a triangular flat structure.

“Don’t be nervous, we’ll be there soon,” Song Ran shouted loudly.

‘Warning, warning, left wing damaged and not repaired, please repair promptly.’ An icy electronic voice sounded.

A red warning light popped up inside the car, flickering.

Bang.

Song Ran slapped the warning light back.

“No worries, forgot to do maintenance, will fix it when we get back,” he grinned.

“….” Li Chengyi’s face twisted, ‘You’re still flying with damaged wings!!?? And you want me not to be nervous!!?’

His heart rate soared to 180, his blood heated, but the back of his head felt cold.

He had never felt such a thrill, not even in Dead End.

“It’s okay, we’ve got parachutes,” Song Ran said, seeing his nervous expression, and quickly reassured him.

“I don’t know how to parachute!!!” Li Chengyi yelled.

“I’ll teach you later, it’s simple, don’t worry,” Song Ran said casually.

“I…” Li Chengyi wanted to say something, but the car accelerated suddenly, a strong wind instantly filled his mouth.

Under the blue sky, high above the dense forest.

A black SUV with wings was flying towards the distance, albeit slightly shaky and occasionally veering to one side, but under constant correction from the steering wheel, it managed to fly in the right direction.

Tiamo Grid, located in the northern part of Yi State, adjacent to the Ferimos Ocean among the four oceans, is a small to medium-sized city almost the same size as Suoyang City.

This place is prone to earthquakes but rich in seafood, so it’s mostly populated by fishermen and seafood development companies.

At an unnamed beach in Tiamo Grid.

Ugh!

Li Chengyi, pale, rolled out of the car and started vomiting on the ground.

He had vomited everything he could on the way, and now there was nothing in his stomach but a bit of acidic water.

“Brother, you’re not doing well. Your constitution is too weak,” Song Ran got out of the car from the other side, bent down to light a cigarette, and took a satisfying puff.

Looking at the exhausted Li Chengyi who couldn’t even speak, he glanced around, took out a pair of tea-colored sunglasses, and put them on.

“These are for you.” He took out another pair of the same tea-colored sunglasses from his pocket.

Li Chengyi turned around, saw the AR augmented glasses handed over to him, took a long breath, and stood up straight.

“Can I change the color?”

“Adjust it yourself, it’s quite convenient to use in remote areas like this, but closer to the city, don’t use it too much. If you run into a tougher hacker, you wouldn’t even know how you died,” Song Ran warned.

“Not connected to the internet, just a local area network type?” Li Chengyi realized and asked. He had long known about this gadget but could never afford it as the minimum price was two hundred thousand a pair, beyond reach for ordinary people.

“Yeah, the battery can last a whole day, just don’t max out the power,” Song Ran affirmed.

He rummaged in his clothes, took out a silver small round box.

He snapped open the box, inside like rings, were two silver hairpin-like items.

“One for each person, smart simultaneous translation device.”

Song Ran took one out and handed it to Li Chengyi.

The latter took it, looked at it.

“Where do I clip it?”

“Anywhere close to the throat.”

“Then the collar.” Li Chengyi casually clipped the device to the edge of his collar.

Then he put on the AR glasses, and a subtle prompt sound rang out.

“Please set the startup gesture.”

He randomly made a gesture of a single hand heart.

“Setup complete. Please select mode.”

“1——Engineering mode: Can be used for precise calculation of scanning parameters, recording, video recording, basic radiation analysis, etc.

2——Regular mode: Can be used for enhanced vision, three-dimensional modeling, short-distance contact, medical examination, and data study.”

“Select regular.”

Li Chengyi softly responded.

Beep beep.

After two soft beeps.

In an instant, the beach, the waves, became exceptionally clear and detailed in Li Chengyi’s eyes.

Hundreds of meters away, the seawater hitting the black rocks, the splashing fine spray, became crystal clear in Li Chengyi’s eyes.

He could even see a bit of coral debris mixed in one of the splashes.

On the right side of the vision was a tiny number.

Optional magnification: 1-100.

“Let’s go. The boss’s people have arrived.” Song Ran’s voice came from beside him at this time.

Li Chengyi immediately saw in his vision, on the right side, in the lower right corner, a green prompt number appeared.

‘3 people, 19.763m.’

This was to notify him where the people were coming from, how many there were, and what their distance was from him.

Li Chengyi inwardly sighed, only now truly experiencing the level of technology of this era.

At least in his previous life, he had never experienced this kind of technology.

But thinking of the hackers Song Ran mentioned, he still took off the AR and turned to look at the newcomers.

By this time, Song Ran had already gone up to talk to them.

They were three workers in gray overalls and yellow hats.

The yellow hats they wore were made of reinforced plastic hard construction hats. Round like a half-cut soybean.

The three workers were relatively short, probably not even reaching 1.7 meters, standing in front of Song Ran like little kids, somewhat shrinking.

Approaching, Li Chengyi heard their conversation.

It wasn’t the common Yi State dialect but an unknown dialect.

However, his collar translator soon started working, flashing a tiny green light.

The voice of the leading yellow hat was quickly translated into standard Mandarin in Li Chengyi’s ears.

“.The place to stay is still a certain distance from here, we’ll lead the way, you follow behind. It rained heavily here yesterday, the ground is very wet everywhere, and our machines aren’t working well.”

Song Ran didn’t wait for the other party to continue and interjected.

“How’s the progress? The boss’s daily wages are fully paid; we only care about the progress.”

“We’ve dug more than two hundred and fifty meters, continuing downward requires time because the Glius parking lot itself is in a collapsed state, we worry about recklessly damaging the outer wall structure, completely damaging the remaining cavities inside. So we’ve been waiting for an expert to calculate the best excavation route for us,” the lead yellow hat explained.

Their skin was dark, and they looked thin, the typical appearance of people living in tropical zones.

“Let’s go, take a look at the site first,” Song Ran said, not wanting to waste words, and directly stated.

“Which expert did you hire?” He suddenly remembered something and asked.

“It’s Expert Ding Chongyi,” the lead yellow hat hurriedly answered.

“Her huh.” Song Ran’s steps paused briefly, “She’s doing remote calculations online?”

“No, Expert Ding arrived yesterday, she’s probably still inspecting around the site,” the yellow hat quickly replied.

“Why don’t you change experts??” Song Ran’s face showed obvious irritation.

Li Chengyi, following beside, saw this scene, and also became curious about this Expert Ding Chongyi.

Someone who could make the fierce and strong Song Ran feel irritated must also be an interesting character.

“Let it be, among the second-level experts, Ding Chongyi indeed… well, let’s not talk about this, let’s go check it out first,” Song Ran waved his hand.

The three yellow hats and they each went back to their cars, engines started, veered off the beach, passed through a small coconut grove, and drove onto a clearly newly constructed black road.

Li Chengyi sat in the passenger seat, looking at the randomly fallen coconuts by the roadside, some coconut shells were rotten and black, with no one to pick them up, establishing a basic understanding of this place in his mind.

“What’s the deal with that Expert Ding Chongyi? You seem to think she’s difficult to deal with?” he asked, turning back from the window.

“She’s the type… very annoying, but you can’t find anyone to replace. Level one expert’s capability, but still level two, the only one in the company,” Song Rang showed a headache expression.

“Experts can speed up the digging progress, just endure if she’s annoying,” Li Chengyi didn’t think much of it, feeling it was Song Ran who had poor tolerance.

“You’ll understand when you meet her.” Song Ran took a deep breath, and stepped on the gas pedal to accelerate.

The car roared, like a roaring beast, instantly reaching a speed of 160, rushing forward on the black road.
