Chapter 224: Interstellar travel
“Four…..Four hundred million!? Second brother, why did you exchange that much money? The exchange system of the Destiny world hasn’t been open for long and there will be a lot of uncertainty and instability. Even a rich person wouldn’t be willing to exchange this much all at once. Otherwise, if something were to happen, then they would not be able to take it back. After all, the people who created and maintain the Destiny world are all from another world.” Choking on his own saliva, Zuo Po Jun gave a few coughs before saying this in a shocked voice.
Murong Qiu Shui nodded his head, showing his agreement.
“There’s no other reason. You might think that exchanging this much is not safe, but I think it’s actually safer to store this money in this form. In this strictly monitored world, no one will be able to hack in and steal all this money.”
Four hundred million. Three hundred million came from the money Su Luo paid him to protect Su Fei Fei and the other hundred million came from Li Tian Peng. In total, it was all the money he had, but he had promised to protect Su Fei Fei for a lifetime……Then in the future, wouldn’t he still receive more protection money?
This was indeed the question.
“There’s no more discussion on this issue. Exchanging for this much, once the wealth rankings open, perhaps I can be ahead of everyone else. There’s nothing special to talk about this matter. Po Jun, this is for you.”
Ye Tian Xie took out a gray coloured scroll, the “Protection Soul” Job Change Scroll. He placed it into Zuo Po Jun’s hands.
Zuo Po Jun stood up and excitedly held it. Murong Qiu Shui had a bitter look, with envy filling those peach like eyes……Ai, old fourth’s treatment cannot compare to old third’s treatment. God, why couldn’t you let me be born a year earlier.
Zuo Po Jun was so excited that he did not know what to say. Compared to the best grade equipment and the strongest items, what players chased after the most was a unique Hidden Job that was different from others and much stronger in comparison! With this Hidden Job Change Scroll in his hand, even if he was the Zuo Family’s young master, his hands began to tremble with excitement.
“Second brother, this…….”
“This is the Job Change Scroll from the War God’s Spirit of the Ten Thousand Bone Ruins which he entrusted me to give to someone worthy of inheriting his strength and faith. According to the War God, it should be a very strong Job. Now, go and do the Job Change.” Ye Tian Xie said.
Zuo Po Jun nodded and carefully crushed the scroll.
Instantly, a silver light came from the crushed scroll and gathered into the shape of a shield. It slowly floated into Zuo Po Jun’s body and integrated into him.
“Ding…..You have used the ‘Protection Soul’ Job Change Scroll and have successfully changed into the ‘Protection Soul’ Job. HP + 500, Defense +50, MP +30, Vitality +30, Strength +10. Every level up will grant an additional 1 vitality and 10 HP. The original stats attached to the Knight Job has vanished.”
In the Chinese Server, a second person with a Hidden Job had appeared.
After his Job Change succeeded, Zuo Po Jun’s stats increased by a large amount, making him stunned for a bit. Then he slowly said, “Damn!”
“How is it?” Ye Tian Xie asked.
Zuo Po Jun swallowed his saliva and said, “It…..It increased my HP by eight hundred and my defense by eighty. Every time I level up, I’ll also receive extra HP and Vitality……Moreover, this Job’s skills, too strong, it’s just too strong! Compared to my previous Knight Job, it was complete garbage!”
Zuo Po Jun was so excited that his face turned red. He called out his status menu and shared it with Ye Tian Xie and everyone here. A single Job Change had made him completely reborn. Especially Murong Qiu Shui who knew everything about him. Seeing his new stats, Murong Qiu Shui revealed a strange look that also contained a look of disbelief.
Job Skills: Body Strengthening, Shield Mastery, Spiritual Taunt, Crowd Taunt, Soul Protection, Wind and Thunder Slash, Berserk Shield Rush.
In the beginning phase, this Job had a total of seven skills. Its abilities were all strong, something that the normal Knight Job could not compare to at all.
“So strong! Big brother Zuo, you should be the strongest knight right now.” Su Fei Fei gave a gasp as she said this.
“Hei, hei.” Zuo Po Jun gave a proud laugh.
Ye Tian Xie’s eyes swept over Zuo Po Jun’s stats. After being a little surprised, he knit his brows and did not make a sound, looking like he was thinking about something.
“Second brother, is there something wrong?” Zuo Po Jun noticed the change in his expression and quickly asked.
Ye Tian Xie shook his head and said with a frown, “I was just thinking that this Job was a little too strong.”
Zuo Po Jun was stunned as he asked in a muffled voice, “Isn’t it good that it’s strong?”
“The great Murong Qiu Shui says that a human’s intelligence is inversely scaled to his body proportions. Beloved third brother, second brother’s meaning is that in a gaming world that pursues balance, even if it is a Hidden Job, it would be different compared to a normal Job and be a little bit stronger, but it would only be strong to a certain limit. But in front of us is…..Whether it is second brother’s Reverse Boned Evil Dragon or your new Job, its strength far surpasses what normal players can achieve. It is a very puzzling anomaly. Do you understand beloved third brother?”
Although Murong Qiu Shui explained everything in a honest manner, anyone who heard him would still hear the bitter taste in his voice. Old second had the Reverse Boned Evil Dragon, old third had the Protection Soul…..Old fourth felt that this was not fair!
“This…..also means that the Hidden Jobs of the Destiny world will be different from the other games. Will the Hidden Jobs be much stronger than normal jobs?” Zuo Po Jun said.
Ye Tian Xie nodded, “From what we can see, it seems to be the case. The Destiny world is doomed to be an imbalanced world. But an imbalanced world is the most real kind of world.
Murong Qiu Shui and Zuo Po Jun thought about it for a bit before nodding at the same time. Indeed, it was like Ye Tian Xie said, an imbalanced world was the most real kind of world. Absolute balance only existed in one’s fantasies and would never truly appear. Even those games that chased after balance in the past could never reach perfect balance.
The Destiny world seemed to be doing the opposite…..Thinking about when the Destiny world opened when the researcher Pu Luo Si received the question of balance, he responded by saying that “this world will never achieve perfect balance”. At that time, everyone thought that he had splendidly dodge the question, but thinking about it now, it did not seem like he was dodging the question at all.
“Po Jun, after you finish helping elder sister, get familiar with your powers with Qiu Shui. Remember your words…..become the strongest Knight.” Ye Tian Xie said.
“I will keep my words.” Zuo Po Jun patted his chest and then left with Murong Qiu Shui. Becoming the strongest Knight was not just something he had randomly said. The main reason for this was because of the stimulation from how strong Ye Tian Xie was.
After Zuo Po Jun and Murong Qiu Shui left, Ye Tian Xie walked in front of Su Fei Fei and said something that made her roll her eyes, “Fei Fei, I’m hungry.”
“I’m also hungry.” Guo Guo’s little head popped out, but was pushed down by Ye Tian Xie’s palm.
“…..Humph, only knowing how to ask me to cook. Alright, I’ll go make some food. Remember to come out and eat. It doesn’t matter if you’re hungry, but you’re not allowed to let me and Xiao Xi starve like you.” After saying this, she said goodbye to Broken Heart before logging off.
There was only Ye Tian Xie and Broken Heart left in the main hall. Broken Heart unconsciously lowered her head and anxiously gripped her hands together. Every time she was alone with him, she felt very nervous and her heart began to beat faster.
“Can you appraise something for me, my exclusive appraiser?” Ye Tan Xie spoke in a joking tone as he took out one of the Silver Equipment he got to give to Broken Heart. He had a luck value of seventeen, so his drop rate was much higher compared to normal players. In addition, he also fought higher level monsters which increased the drop rate again, so there was a chance of obtaining a Silver Equipment even from a normal monster.
“Ah, alright.” Broken Heart said in a flustered voice. Receiving the level twenty five Silver Equipment, she used the appraisal technique and instantly appraised it before handing it back to Ye Tian Xie.
Ye Tian Xie looked over the stats before throwing it into his inventory. Then he asked, “Chen Xin, when are you going to bring your little sister to play?”
Broken Heart had mentioned a little sister to him before, but in these past few days, she hadn’t brought her little sister over at all. He thought that it was because she was afraid that he would be upset if she brought someone over without his permission, so he took the initiative to ask her about it.
“Her……body isn’t good, so she can’t play games.” Thinking of her little sister, Broken Heart immediately became low spirited and she responded in a low voice, but she quickly raised her head and said with a forced smile, “When her body is better, I will bring her over to play. Big brother Xie Tian, you will definitely like my little sister.”
Broken Heart’s dispirited appearance did not escape Ye Tian Xie’s eyes. He just nodded and did not ask again. Her body being bad enough that she couldn’t play games…..Just how weak was she?
Ye Tian Xie did not continue heading south and just logged off. When his consciousness returned, he heard the sounds of Su Fei Fei running in the kitchen. Looking at Xiao Xi sleeping right beside him, he stood up without any sound and moved into the living room.
When he entered the kitchen, he was pushed out by Su Fei Fei for being in the way. Ye Tian Xie sat down on the sofa and feeling bored, he turned on the TV. On the screen, there was a strange bit of news being shown.
“……Currently, the spaceship heading to the Lyle Star System has finished its test flight. Two brave experimenters have already reached the Lyle Star System and have received the welcome of the Lyle Star System’s residents, successfully returning to Earth. In just a year, the space shuttle to the Lyle Star System will be established and interstellar travel will no longer be a dream……The Lyle Star System’s technology surpass Earth’s by three hundred years. There, you will be able to see all kind of incredible miracles. The medical studies there surpass Earth’s by five hundred years and many incurable diseases can be perfectly cured……The cost of travelling to the Lyle Star System will be huge and a single person’s trip will cost over a billion chinese dollars. Those that are interested, please sign up now.”
“Boring.” Ye Tian Xie turned off the TV and closed his eyes to meditate.
