“I’m going out for a while.” Chen Jing greeted Lu Yanyan and walked out.
“Old Sir, have you eaten? Why don’t you come in and have a seat?”
When he was outside, Chen Jing politely said to the old man.
“No need. Don’t be so polite. I’ve already eaten. You looked very uncomfortable last night. Are you alright?” the old man asked gently.
“Oh, I’m fine. I was fine after a good night’s sleep.”
“Was that policeman a relative of yours last night?” the old man asked curiously.
He left in a hurry last night partly because he saw Liu Qisheng in his police uniform.
“Uh, he’s not a relative. He’s just a regular customer.”
“Oh, that’s good. That’s good…” The old man sounded slightly relieved.
Chen Jing could not help but laugh. He thought to himself that this sounded like a criminal’s tone.
But he said, “Uncle Liu is a very nice person. You don’t have to be afraid of him. But why are you here today?”
Speaking up to this point, Chen Jing curiously asked, “Oh right, Old Sir, what is the background of the painting you showed me last night?”
“This painting…” The old man pondered for a moment. Then, he said, “This painting was accidentally collected from the people. It’s also because it’s a little mysterious, but not everyone can see this kind of mysterious. That’s why I let you take a look. By the way, after you looked at it last night, did you really not see anything special?”
The old man’s current mood was much calmer and steadier than last night.
After Chen Jing looked at the painting last night, the painting unexpectedly moved on its own.
The old man was very excited at that time. He grabbed Chen Jing’s arm and almost began to speak incoherently.
“I…” Chen Jing also wanted to tell him everything he had seen, including the [White Crane Breathing Technique].
He felt that the [White Crane Breathing Technique] came from that painting, and that painting belonged to this old man. Since he had gained some benefits, he should share them with the old man.
However, the old man’s words just now suddenly triggered a feedback on the accuracy rate.
After the old man finished speaking, a few red words suddenly appeared in front of Chen Jing’s eyes — [Accuracy 0%]!
This situation was a little abnormal. In the past, the accuracy rate appeared only after Chen Jing asked the question himself.
But this time, it took the initiative to appear.
What was the reason?
If the accuracy rate was 0, it meant that what the old man said just now was a lie.
He was lying!
Could it be that when someone lied to him, the accuracy rate would automatically identify them?
‘This old man is lying? Could it be that the painting was not collected from the people but came from an improper source? Just now, he specifically asked about Uncle Liu. Could it be that he has a ghost in his heart that has violated the law?’
Chen Jing asked three questions in his mind.
Following that, the red font with the accuracy rate appeared again — [Accuracy 100%]!
‘It’s really true!’
After learning of this result, Chen Jing’s previous thoughts of sharing it also receded.
Since that painting had an improper origin and this old man had committed a crime, it was best to be wary of this kind of person.
Chen Jing deeply knew that not all old men were kind-hearted. Many of them were also black-hearted. For example, Zhang Junnian.
Immediately… he also answered ‘very sincerely’, “After I saw that painting last night, I felt my head swell and ache. It was as if there was indeed something in that painting, but it was something I couldn’t accept. So, I really didn’t see anything special.”
“Is that so?” After the old man heard it, he felt a little regretful.
He had studied that painting for 20 years. He also believed that the secrets in it would not be so easily seen through by others.
And what Chen Jing said seemed to be reasonable. Thus, he did not doubt it.
“If you have free time, you might as well come to my place and take a look. Perhaps you might be able to see some secrets,” the old man said again.
“Okay,” Chen Jing agreed temporarily.
“My house is in Antiques Street. It’s a shop called [Gathering Light Pavilion]. You’re welcome to come at any time,” the old man said and turned to leave.
At this moment, Dai Xinliang, who was eating noodles in the shop, seemed to see him. He hesitated for a moment and called out — “Uncle Gaohan?”
When the old man heard this call, he also turned his head to take a look.
When Dai Xinliang saw him turn his head and saw the whole picture clearly. He immediately confirmed the other party’s identity. He stood up with a smile and seemed to be very surprised. “Uncle Gaohan? Is It really you? Uncle Gaohan!”
“You are?” The old man didn’t seem to recognize him.
“I’m Dai Xinliang, Dai Zhenchang’s son. My father was on the same archaeological team as you. When I was in the capital, I often came to your house to play. Don’t you remember me?”
Dai Xinliang said excitedly, “Back then, you inexplicably quit your job and disappeared for more than 20 years. I’ve always remembered you. I didn’t expect to meet you here today.”
“You? Dai Zhenchang’s son?” The old man recalled briefly and seemed to remember. He compared the Dai Xinliang he knew in his memory with the Dai Xinliang in front of him. Yes, it was indeed quite similar.
It was indeed him.
However, 20 years ago, Dai Xinliang was only a 15-or 16-year-old boy. At that time, he fell in love with his family’s borrowed equipment.
Now, 20 years had passed. Dai Xinliang was now a middle-aged man in his 30s. He was a little chubby and a little bald on the top of his head.
This was not the old man’s fault for not recognizing him at a glance.
“So you all know each other? Why don’t you come in and chat?” Chen Jing beckoned.
Dai Xinliang nodded as well and treated him politely.
But the old man waved his hand. “Forget it. I won’t stay. I still have some matters to attend to when I get back.”
The old man did not show any special emotions when he met his old acquaintance.
“Uncle Gaohan, have you been here all these years? Why did I hear that you’ve cut off all contact with your family and friends?” Dai Xinliang saw that he was unwilling to go in, so he continued chatting outside.
Chen Jing did not want to be a third wheel either. He went in first and continued eating.
The old man smiled bitterly. “My body isn’t well. I didn’t contact everyone because I was afraid of troubling everyone.”
“After you left back then, I was worried for a long time. At that time, many of the equipment was only available at your house. By the way, is your cough better now?” Dai Xinliang asked.
The whole archaeological team knew that Lin Gaohan’s lungs were injured by the poison gas when he went to the tomb.
After that, the root of the illness was laid and the root was injured. Even the best medical treatment could not cure it.
“From the beginning of spring until now this year, I haven’t slept well. I’m afraid that my body won’t be able to hold on for long.” The old man shook his head.
“Are you still alone now?”
“I’m not married, and I don’t have any children. Of course, I can only be alone.”
Dai Xinliang thought for a moment when he heard what he said. Then, he said, “Uncle Gaohan, your old illness cannot be cured by normal medical methods. But I have a brand-new technology now. If I use this technology, I think there is an 80% success rate that will allow it to fully recover.”

“I know my own body. Even if my lung disease is cured, my old bones will not be able to last long.”
“No, this technology of mine can also improve the internal parts of the body. It can be fully repaired. It can even rejuvenate the body…” Dai Xinliang lowered his voice at the end of his sentence.
Up until now, he had only experimented on animals. He had never experimented on humans before.
If he could really apply it to humans, Dai Xinliang felt that it would definitely help him achieve perfection.
Lin Gaohan, on the other hand, had no children, was alone, and was also sick. He was obviously suitable to be the first human experimental subject..
