Chapter 332 – Global Sensation (2)
The Type-R Spacecraft left a tail of bluish-white flames as it flew across the night sky, the flames illuminating half of Beijing. Under the shocked gazes of tens of millions of people, the spacecraft eventually stopped 3,000 meters above Tiananmen Square and began its gradual descent.
When the spacecraft reached the ground, it shattered the floor tiles, and sounds of wind billowing and thunder roaring echoed throughout the area.
The citizens: “…”
The police officers: “…”
The cabin hatch opened, and a girl hopped down along the unfolded staircase and stepped onto the solid ground. She then raised her hands and said, “Oh! Wonderful! I love China!”
“Turn around. Catch.” Leaning out of the hatch, Chen Yu tossed a souvenir to the girl.
“Thank y—ouch!” The girl with the ID Crooked Cart stretched out her hands to catch the approaching rock. However, due to a lack of hand-eye coordination, she ended up watching the rock smash into her forehead.
“…Are you okay?”
“It’s normal to bleed on the first time.”
Picking up the fallen rock, the girl scrutinized it. When she saw the words engraved on the stone, her pain vanished, and she excitedly waved her hand at Chen Yu while saying, “Thank you!”
“No problem. Goodbye.”
When the surrounding police officers saw that Chen Yu was about to leave, they hurriedly stepped forward and called out to him while dispersing the crowd.
“Do you have business with me?” Tilting his head, Chen Yu asked, “Do you want me to compensate for the damages?”
“No.” The old police officer standing in the lead shook his head. He then said solemnly, “Mr. Chen, man I—”
“You haven’t passed the security check yet!” The young police officer beside interrupted.
“Shut up!” The old police officer kicked his colleague aside. He then smiled fawningly at Chen Yu and asked, “May I know if you have some time? I just received a call stating that a leader wishes to invite you for a conversation.”
“You think I’ll go just because you want me to? If I do that, won’t I lose my reputation?” Chen Yu shrugged. He refused to take part in those “troublesome matters” even if it killed him.
Without waiting for the other party to finish speaking, Chen Yu closed the hatch and shouted through the spacecraft’s intercom system, “Everyone move 150 meters away from the spacecraft. You’ll be injured by the high air pressure otherwise. I repeat: Move 150 meters away from the spacecraft…”
Outside the spacecraft, the old officer opened and closed his mouth several times before helplessly instructing his colleagues and the spectating crowd to retreat.
The next moment, the beautifully-shaped spacecraft rose into the sky before transforming into a fireball that illuminated the night sky once more.
“Hello, Miss Zhang. We are reporters from the Chaoyang Morning Post.”
“Hello, we are from CCTV-3…”
After the spacecraft disappeared, droves of reporters flooded forward and fought to aim their “weapons” at Crooked Cart.
“May I know if you are accepting any interviews now?”
“What is your impression of Transdimensional’s UP after coming into close contact with him?”
“Miss Zhang, I heard you are studying at the China University of Technology, right?”
“What thoughts do you have as one of the 20 lucky winners?”
“Can you give us a closer look at the souvenir in your hands? Do you have any thoughts about donating it? The reward our country is offering now has already risen from 500 to 800…”
In such a high-profile manner, Chen Yu finished dropping off nine out of ten of the bullet comment group’s members.
From Guizhou to Beijing, and from Tokyo to Los Angeles. He had practically made a circle around the world.
As to why Chen Yu had done such a flashy send-off, it was because the information ban on him had already thoroughly lost effect. There was no longer any meaning in concealing himself. And with more than 170 million people spreading information on him, by the time the next official livestream came about, everyone in the world who should know about him would’ve found out about him already.
“Last one; Azure Flag.”
After commanding the spacecraft to rise to the thermosphere, Chen Yu looked to Xing Biqi and knowingly asked, “Where’s your house?”
“Jinzhou City…” Xing Biqi answered hesitantly.
“Okay.” Although Chen Yu knew that the business district Xing Biqi designated was far away from her home address, he did not plan on exposing her. Immediately, he flew the spacecraft toward Jinzhou City.
Four minutes later, the spacecraft arrived at its destination.
After waiting for the spacecraft to finish its descent, Xing Biqi walked up to the opened hatch and stopped, her feet not moving onto the staircase even after some time had passed.
“What’s wrong?” Chen Yu asked.
“I-I can’t catch the gift. Please give it to me now.”
Chen Yu: “…”
“Thank you.” Xing Biqi bowed slightly after accepting the souvenir. She then carefully stepped off the spacecraft while holding onto the staircase’s handrails.
After taking a long look at Xing Biqi’s back, Chen Yu closed the hatch and had the spacecraft rise into the air.
“Next will be the donation group members. It’s almost 10 PM now, so let’s speed things up. We’ll start with you first, Mr. Ma.”
“You can set us down at Shanghai,” Jack Ma said. He then pulled out a business card and handed it to Chen Yu, asking, “May I know if I can befriend you, Mr. Chen?”
“No problem.” Accepting the business card, Chen Yu said, “I know you have a lot of things you wish to talk to me about. We’ll chat privately afterward.”
“Okay, it is a great honor.”
“Ah… They’re finally gone.”
At 10:11 PM Beijing time, Chen Yu dropped off the NASA astronauts, who were also the last group of people to leave. Ignoring the various invites the American people sent him, he promptly flew the spacecraft back to the Pacific Ocean’s Equator.
Five minutes later, Chen Yu arrived back at the Super Floating Castle and landed the Type-R Spacecraft in the Forbidden Forest’s airport without disturbing any of the Academy’s students or teachers. After picking up the heavy storage unit, he left the spacecraft and flew to the floating island’s edge.
Underneath the island was a brightly lit city located in the middle of an ocean.
“Not bad. It’s starting to have a civilized aura now.”
“Good evening, Lord Headmaster.” At this time, Hermione suddenly appeared behind Chen Yu. “Long time no see.”
“Mhm, long time no see. The school is on track now, and the review product this time is a big one, so I didn’t have any opportunities to come here.” Turning around, Chen Yu scrutinized Hermione briefly before asking, “How are things here? Are there any problems with the Academy’s operation?”
“There are no problems. We have produced many scientific research results, and most of them can be directly applied to existing fields. According to the professors’ prediction, human technology will gain at least a ten-year leap within the following year. Currently, the only limiting factor is productivity.”
“Good. We’ll be recruiting a new batch of students soon, right? Has the list been drafted yet?”
“It’s done. It only needs your stamp of approval now, Lord Headmaster.”
“Okay. I’ll come to deal with it in a few days. For now, goodbye.”
“Please wait a moment,” Hermione said as she stretched out her hand to stop Chen Yu.
“What is it?”
“I did not come here to report about the Academy’s situation to you.” Expressionlessly, Hermione said, “I am mainly here because some problems have recently appeared in the Academy’s security system.”
“Problems with security?” Chen Yu frowned.
“Yes.” Hermione nodded. She then pointed up at the sky and said, “Recently, there have been drones flying above the island. Based on my analysis, they are drones with offensive capabilities.”
“Which country do they belong to? Didn’t I say this place is a no-fly zone? Who’s so bold as to pull such a stunt?”
“They do not belong to any country’s government.”
“Shoot them down the next time you see them.”
“They are at too high of an altitude. Moreover…” Dragging on her voice, Hermione said, “Based on the analysis of Professor Lu of the Department of Aviation, those drones’ technological content is at least 25 years ahead of modern standards.”
“You…aren’t joking, right?” Chen Yu’s complexion changed slightly, his eyes narrowing.
“You know I am incapable of doing so.”
After remaining silent for a long time, Chen Yu waved his hand, spurred the plasma engine, and flew toward the Middle East.
Technology that is at least 25 years ahead?
Also, why do I keep getting the feeling as if I forgot something…
“Mr. Chen! You forgot me!”
Inside the Type-R Spacecraft, Little Peach shouted hoarsely, “You forgot about me…”
