Awakening - Chapter 174
Chapter 217 Rain Part 1
“Master, you can control that power now?” Rei Li said, pleasantly surprised.
Lei Yin shook his head, “No, this is nothing but good luck. In that half a month in Sweden, in order to cope with the possible appearance of the super espers, I began to try to control that energy. Maybe because I survived two years ago, I found out that the energy seemed to have an inexplicable change. I tried to gently guide the output of that energy with my internal force and stopped it when it reached a certain level. While doing so can indeed achieve both the ability to use a portion of that power without getting it out of control, but the balance between the two is very fragile; If it’s not well controlled even a little bit, that energy will immediately strike back. That night when I vomited blood, I was not faking it, it was nearly out of control that time.”
After hearing this, Rei Li can’t help but let out a sigh, “Master, thankfully you’re all right this time. What about the site?”
“It has already been completely sealed by the lava.”
Lei Yin nodded, “Yes. At that time when I spread the explosives in that site, I found out the area was close to volcanic layer, that’s why there are natural hot springs in the vicinity. As long as a hole is created in the active layer by a blast, the lava below will well up. So I concentrated on putting the explosives on the weakest point. You should know about the rest.”
“So, the whole site is sealed up?” Rei Li cannot help but feel a bit disappointed.
“This is the best result. The things inside cannot be used by today’s technology, even if they can be used, it will only be abused for the military. According to our previous plan, we should now be able to enter the negotiating phase.”
Rei Li thought for a moment and then said: “Master, Do you think they really believe this is an accident?”
“No, it is dubious at best. But now the site has been destroyed, for them, there is no need to waste manpower and resource to catch you. Now our only leverages are their shady experimental videos and data files. These should be able to force them to stop pursuing you. We’re running out of time, you should go back.”
“What about you, master?”
“Right now, I certainly can’t show myself in front of other people. Otherwise, everyone will know this is a setup. Don’t worry, since I can come here by myself, I naturally have a way to leave. After a time, I will find you, but before that, you need to be careful.” After tapping him on the shoulder Lei Yin slowly walked away.
After Lei Yin disappeared, Rei Li cheered up a bit and immediately ran toward where they parked their plane.
No one knew when it began; On the internet suddenly appeared a strange video clip.
In this clip, people can see that some people were doing a strange experiment. But the object of the experiment was actually human.
Although the clip was only a few minutes, it was surprisingly clear. Not only that, over time, more and more similar clips began to appear on the internet, moreover, the content was increasingly bloody and nauseating.
In less than a week, the clips have spread like wildfire all over the world, becoming the trending topic.
There were those who said the experimental clips were fake. But more people thought that they were real because no special effect can make such realistic experimental scenes.
If these were true, then where did those inhuman experiments come from?
These video clips not only caused great reactions from the common folk, they also aroused the interest of the government. More and more people began to look for the original source of these clips. Unfortunately, no one knew where these video clips came from. They seemed to be suddenly spread on the internet.
News or newspapers may be subject to state regulation and control but the internet belongs to the world. As the sensation from these clips continued to increase by the proliferation of share button, some people began to be afraid.
They knew that these video clips were just a very small part of videos or information that were leaked by people, who intentionally hid some of the most crucial parts. If the leaker fully disclosed all the videos and data, the consequences would be absolutely unimaginable.
Hearing the knock from outside the door, the middle-aged man put down the newspaper in his hands and then said: “Come in.”
The one entering the room was a middle-aged man in a white gown. He said to the man sitting on the sofa: “Your excellency, I have just received a call from Rei. He said things went well, the other side accepted our conditions.”
Lei Yin sipped the tea and said: “Things temporarily come to an end. As long as those pieces of evidence are in our hands, they are still going to be restless all day. We need to be careful in the future, as long as we put our guard down even a little bit, they will come and bite us again.”
Chang’an nodded his head: “I understand, your excellency.”
Lei Yin stood up and walked to the window watching the outside rain, which gradually subsided. After a few minutes, he said to himself: “Looks like the rain is almost over.”
Chang’an smiled and picked up the newspaper on the table.
Chapter 217 Rain Part 2
“Kazumi, can you help me find this book?” A handsome guy, who attracted women’s eyes wherever he went, went over to a bookstore employee and said.
Kazumi, who finished reorganizing the bookshelf, wrinkled her brows, took out a small book with a pen from her uniform and said: “Please tell me the title of the book that you wish to find.”
Ogata Yasuda casually mentioned a book title and then lowered his face to gaze at the girl busily copying the book title in the book.
Looking at her up close in her natural light blue uniform, he began to somewhat appreciate the rule established by the bookstore owner that required the employee to wear the uniform. Since that first time he saw her in a dress in the restaurant, he had never seen her in a skirt again. Regarding this extremely reluctant to dress up girl, he really was helpless. Fortunately, this bookstore uniform was a kind of half-skirt uniform. Although it can’t be compared to her good figure.
After she copied the title, Kazumi quietly walked to the front of the computer to query for the book.
Looking at the looming slender legs under her skirt uniform, Ogata Yasuda suddenly wanted to see what would this overly conservative girl look like in a miniskirt.
After finding the location of the book, Kazumi walked to the other side. Yasuda immediately went up to her side.
After vigorously putting a book on the bookshelf, a girl wearing the same uniform grunted, “I really don’t understand what does Yasuda like in that woman, who has a forever deadpan face.”
From nearby shelves stocked with new books, another girl came up and said: “A vain woman like her will not have a good end. I think Yasuda is just playing with her. Before long, Yasuda will dump her. At school, people said that she seduced Yasuda, what a shameless b*tch.”
The previous girl sneered, “If she didn’t do something like that, how could Yasuda be confused by her?’
“You guys don’t talk nonsense, Kazumi is not like what you said.” Take Asasei walked up to them and emotionally said.
But that girl said in disdain, “You are her friend, of course, you would help her speak up. By the way, if I remember correctly, wasn’t Yasuda good with you for a time? But I don’t know why he just doesn’t speak to you again. How do you feel about your friend robbing away your favorite guy?”
“Don’t, don’t talk nonsense.” Take Asasei’s anger came out through her eyes as tears.
Seeing her like this, that girl looked smug, “Oh, our princess looks very sad, is it because what we said about the relationship?”
Take Asasei was about to open her mouth to refute, but suddenly, a hand grabbed her right hand, then a cold female voice came from her side: “Little Take, leave them alone. Quarreling with this bimbo girl will only lower your IQ.”
“What, what did you say? Say that one more time if you dare.” That woman suddenly gritted her teeth and looked at Kazumi.
Kazumi lightly said: “Don’t you understand the meaning of these very simple words? Sorry, it seems like I still overestimate your IQ. But never mind, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have a brain, as long as you have a body, that’s enough. There are many men whose IQs are not much different than you and would like a woman like you. If it still doesn’t work, you can go to Shinjuku to do compensation dating, there should be a lot of horny old men there.”
“You shameless slut! I will make you regret what you just said.” That girl’s body trembled, seemingly ready rush at Kazumi.
“Unable to accept other people’s opinion, it really is your style. By the way, just so you know, I am a black belt in Karate in High School.” After that, Kazumi suddenly took a step forward.
Seeing her suddenly came over to them, the two girls were horrified and took two steps back.
After looking at them with her without-temperature eyes, Kazumi coldly said, “Before I am really angry, why don’t you two get lost.”
Awed by her aura, the two girls dared not say anything, turned around and walked away.
After scaring them off, Kazumi went back to Take Asasei’s side and said: “Are you okay?”
Still with tears filled eyes, Take Assei excitedly held her hand and said: “Kazumi, you’re so awesome just now. Are you really a black belt in Karate?”
After handing her a tissue, Kazumi laughed: “Fool, I was just lying to them. In High School, I was so busy with my study, how could I have the time to practice Karate?”
Take Asasei was wiping away her tears as she said: “Are you really just lying to them? Just now, you looked like you’re really good in Karate.”
Kazumi smiled, “Just like when we encounter a wild beast, if you’re afraid and run back, they will immediately pounce on you and bite you. But if you show no fear, they dare not attack you. Haven’t you learned this in your Biology class in High School?”
Take Asasei could not help but smile, “Come on, how could the Biology class in High School teach about this thing?”
Seeing that her friend had resumed her normal look, Kazumi said: “Ok, let’s get back to work, otherwise, the manager would have to curse at us.”
Take Asasei spat out her tongue and continued her unfinished work.
Secretly watching the scene from the beginning not far away from there, Ogata Yasuda’s eyes were suddenly suffused with a strange look.
Chapter 217 Rain Part 3
This woman always gave him an unexpected feeling. The pretty girls that he saw were too much, and many of them have had relationships with him. But a special girl like her was the first that he encountered. She has a calmness and astuteness that did not match her age, a one of a kind who did not seem to need any help from men, but still has a good very strong self-esteem. Because of this strong self-esteem, she did not need to dress up to attract the attention of other men, did not need to take into account about the relationship and need not tolerate other people’s rudeness. This was one of the women who was difficult to grasp. But at the same time, she was also a woman of marvelous attraction. Yasuda has never wanted a woman so badly like this.
He quietly went behind Kazumi. Looking at her slender and beautiful figure, Yasuda had the impulse to hug her tightly from behind, an impulse that has disappeared from his heart for many years.
After finding the book, Kazumi was ready to take it to that man, only to find that he was standing behind her and was looking at her with an unknown look.
“Sir, the book that you’re looking for is here.” Kazumi gave that book to him.
“Thank you.” After taking the book, Yasuda caressed the cover with his fingers.
Kazumi ignored him, turned away and went back to the unfinished bookshelf where the other guests jumbled the books there.
After looking up to glance at her, Yasuda once again stepped forward to come to her side.
Hearing the sound of approaching footsteps, Kazumi knew he was coming. But, she lowered her head and continued her work, pretending not to know.
In another corner of the bookstore, Take Asasei was looking at them with a complex look.
“Kazumi, how about we have a cup of coffee after work?” Yasuda suddenly said.
Kazumi appeared to be totally unable to hear him, her hands did not stop even for a moment.
Yasuda somewhat depressingly leaned his shoulder on the bookshelf: “Until now, you still don’t believe me?”
Finally, after she finished stacking the books in order, Kazumi turned around to look at him. After a while, she said: “You know, every time you come, little Take will be unhappy. Please do not come again, okay?”
Yasuda held his gaze on her: “As long as you agree to be my girlfriend, I promise I will never come here again.”
Kazumi’s expression turned cold, “Are you threatening me?”
“That’s not what I mean.”
“Just look for other people, such an ordinary woman like me is not worth your time. There are a lot of pretty girls out there, keep your sweet words for them.” With that, she walked to another shelf.
Yasuda ran up to take her hand and said: “Kazumi….”
But before he finished, Kazumi forcefully pulled her hand back, took two steps back and then glared at him, “I’m warning you, if you dare to touch me again next time, I will not be polite.”
Yasuda can only stare at her as she left.
In the evening after work, inside the female staff locker room, Take Asasei hesitantly looked at her friend who was changing her clothes.
After a while, she finally mustered up enough courage to say: “Kazumi, actually….Actually, you need not worry about me. I knew from the very beginning that he never likes me. So even if the two of you ended up together, I won’t be angry.”
Looking at the face of this excited girl, Kazumi good-naturedly said with a smile: “Why do you think I want to be with him? I told you, whether his is sincere or not, it has nothing to do with me. Think about it, a young master like him, even if he really is interested in a woman, she will just be his flavor of the week. As soon as the novelty is over, wouldn’t the end result be the same? A woman need not only love, a sense of security is also very important. Stop thinking about it, let’s go.” After that, Kazumi began to lock her locker.
Take Asasei looked at her enviously, “Kazumi, why are you always so rational?”
Kazumi gently tapped her head and said with a smile, “Fool.”
After walking out of the bookstore, sure enough, Take Asasei once again saw Ogata Yasuda, as always, stood outside waiting for them. Seeing them out, he immediately came over.
Kazumi pretended not to know him and pulled Take Asasei away as they walked toward the bus stop.
Knowing that she won’t be taking his car, Ogata Yasuda bitterly walked back to his car.
When the two were dozens of meters away from the bus stop, all of a sudden, a taxi stopped not far ahead of them. Then, from the rear door, came down a man in a short sleeve shirt.
After that man got off the car, he said a few words to the taxi driver and then walked toward the two girls.
Looking at the gradually approaching man, tears gradually welled up in Kazumi’s eyes. When that man was close enough that she was able to see the smile on the corner of his mouth, her tears finally slowly streamed down from her eyes.
“Kazumi, I’m back.” The man said with a smile.
Hearing that familiar voice, Kazumi’s tears continued to surge out like a broken faucet.
Looking at the usually sensible girl who, at that moment, was crying like a child as she tightly hugged a stranger, Ogata Yasuda who was sitting inside a sports car, could not help but feel a tingling sensation that he cannot endure.
Fortunately, he finally came back safely. Standing next to Kazumi, Take Asasei showed a gratified smile.
