Chapter 104: Triumphant
[Speed: 10m/s]

[Energy: 13%]
There was enough energy, and the speed would be sufficient .
Jiang Chen let out a sigh of relief, no longer increasing the output of the turbine engine .
"Be more gentle!" Disgruntled, Lin Lin twisted her body and threw a dirty glare at Jiang Chen who was "lifting" her .
Jiang Chen turned on the speaker . "Shut up, don't move . "
"My ears . " Lin Lin covered her ears in pain, not daring to stare at Jiang Chen again .
There was no mistake; the volume increase had been on purpose .
In the end, Jiang Chen hadn't pulled the trigger, and the girl remained ignorant of her close brush with death .
While it would be useless for him to establish a biosphere, it was not completely without benefit .
From another perspective, this was the space colonization program's sub-project . Space? Although it was still a bit far, it was better to save it for now .
Seeing the girl finally kept her mouth shut, Jiang Chen ignored her and glanced at the goods attached to the back .
The survival base had plenty of supplies, even air-sealed compressed crackers, so Jiang Chen was not interested in taking that moldy food . The only thing that surprised him was that even as a digitalized human, Lin Lin still had to eat .
He thought she only needed to be recharged .
Ultimately, the loot this time was nothing short of amazing .
The hummingbird drone production line could produce plate-sized multipurpose drones attached to fire extinguishers, guns, and monitors—the standard drone used by the PAC .
Even if you combed through the entire Wanghai City, you probably wouldn't be able to find the same production facility . It came as a genuine surprise to find this within the survival base . During the war, military production lines were the primary target, but in civil survival bases, most would not come installed with them .
The Sixth Street did sell drones, but most of them were handmade from recycled materials .
Once Yao Yao designs a drone alert system, the drones could then take over patrolling duty around the base . He could even build a fleet and equip them all with machine guns . Imagine, if anyone dared to look for trouble at the Fishbone Base, they would be met with a swarm of drones . What sort of expressions would they have?
And then there was the processor inside his storage dimension . If he created a virtual reality game, Future Technology's trillion dollar market value would have another zero . Of course, it was asking for a death sentence if he brought it out into the modern world . The super computer that was advanced by more than one hundred years was drastically different from Little White, who had few practical applications . Secret agents from all over the world would try to sneak into his office . It was important to consider when to add that extra zero .
The other minor equipment that he brought along was at the request of Lin Lin . It seemed to be testing equipment? After Jiang Chen ridiculed the junk, saying that they could only be sold for a few crystals at best at the Sixth Street recycling station, she looked at him disdainfully .

Mhmm, well, as Jiang Chen pretended to leave, she immediately cried out to apologize .
The bookshelf-sized production equipment was three tons .
Together with the weight of the weapons, the maximum weight fortunately did not pass the T-3 power armor's limit of five tons . Lin Lin, who weighed at most 43 kilograms, was negligible .
As a non-combat digitalized human, she was lighter than most people, especially since she didn't have the weaponry component attached to her body .

Shouts of joy and whistles erupted, nearly penetrating the cold armor .
The zombies had retreated .
The hibernation chambers were destroyed, and bacteria would no longer be produced from this deep pit .
The survivors viewed Jiang Chen as a hero, and the cautious and suspicious looks in their eyes were long gone, leaving only heartfelt respect .
Honestly, it felt great to be looked up to .
Through the screen, he smiled at the people cheering for him before returning his attention to the monitors .
After exiting the deep pit, his feet hovered above the ground .
He controlled the engine switch, gradually decreasing the engine output and allowing the goods to gently touch the ground .
He made sure there was no error in his control . He sighed, then decreased the engine output to the minimum before dropping to the ground himself .
Sun Jiao ordered the survivors to lift the loot onto the armored vehicle . With most of the bullets consumed, there was plenty of room .
Naturally, everything still could not fit . To make room, Jiang Chen announced that the loot was to be divided up among themselves, which received a wave of cheers .
Truthfully, the survivors were mentally prepared for these people in power armors to keep the crystals to themselves—this was common practice in the apocalypse . The promise was only a joke in front of absolute force .
Because it was a defensive battle, everyone showed signs of a hard-fought battle despite the casualties being kept to a minimum . Only seven people died after meeting strong mutants like Roshans . As for the soldiers in power armors, they emerged unscathed since the zombies in the rural area could not break through their defenses .
130 survivors arranged themselves into groups with the largest made up of eight members, the smallest one . Everyone received the crystals that were rightfully theirs according to the plan and record . Each group sent out a representative to obtain their fair share of crystals from behind the armored truck .

The total loot was four hundred thousand crystals, minus the 50% cost of ammunition .
Fishbone's profit was one hundred forty thousand crystals—almost the entire trade figure from last year . It would be a good way to make money every month if the zombies with the x2 bacteria weren't wiped clean .
After splitting the loot, Jiang Chen and Sun Jiao walked off to the side .
They removed their helmets .
"Who is she?" Sun Jiao wore a dangerous smile on her face as she gestured at the tightly wrapped Lin Lin .
"Me? I am the elegant digitalized human Lin Lin . Thank me, inferior creature . "
The aggressive voice immediately issued a shriek when she met Sun Jiao's deadly gaze . Lin Lin curled up at the back, hiding behind the man she once called a devil .
"My slave . The overall situation is a bit complicated . " Jiang Chen glanced at the resentful Lin Lin and explained briefly to Sun Jiao about their encounter underground .
"Ahem . In case you're misunderstanding something, I have to be clear . She is only my captive . " Jiang Chen added with a pained smile . He immediately knew what Sun Jiao was thinking when he saw her expression .
"Oh? So I can torture her however I like?" Sun Jiao gave a mischievous stare at the girl who was not returning the nicest look either .
Stared down by Sun Jiao, Lin Lin shivered . She curled up more tightly while trembling .
"W-what do you want to do? I-I control . "
"Ahem," Jiang Chen interrupted, "be nice to her, but don't let her leave the mansion . "
Sun Jiao looked questioningly at the frightened Lin Lin before turning to Jiang Chen, full of questions .
He sighed, and after warning Lin Lin with a stare, he whispered into Sun Jiao's ear, "Project Garden of Eden . . . it can restore the land . "
Hearing his words, she paused for a moment before narrowing her eyes and looking at Lin Lin .
Restore farmland? Then wouldn't that mean Fishbone's advantage would no longer exist?
Although it was a lucrative proposition, she subconsciously thought about it from Jiang Chen's perspective . The way she looked at Lin Lin was no longer friendly .
"Do you need to?"
"No, but we are lacking scientists in the base . Just keep her here for now . It won't take long before she realizes the cruelty of the world . By that time, even if we forced her to go, she won't . " Seeing that Lin Lin was already shaking, Jiang Chen sighed .
"Okay . " Sun Jiao nodded and gazed at Lin Lin with hidden motives . "If you dare to escape . . . hehe . "
Lin Lin's face was full of fear, and her legs began to shake uncontrollably .
She was starting to regret her decision to leave the virtual world . The expression on this woman's face made her feel as though she had just escaped from a wolf's den and into a tiger's .
She didn't understand . She possessed the technology to save this world, but she was still being treated like this . She had deigned to help these poor people struggling in shambles and deserved praise from these low creatures .
Feeling mistreated, Lin Lin pouted and tears of humiliation rolled down her cheeks .
With her experience of the world, of course she wouldn't understand . If Jiang Chen were to allow her freedom to yell out on Sixth Street, "I have Project Garden of Eden in my head!"—
Mhmm . Not just her brain . Even if it was in the intestines, people would dig it out .
"Let's leave this for later . Put the Death Claw into the trunk . We can do some research on it . Crystals have been distributed already . Now, let's go home . "
Hearing home, a smile surfaced on Sun Jiao's face, and she nodded .
"Mhmm, let's go home!"

In a victorious march, they walked cheerfully and upright through the streets littered with bodies .
Survivors embraced and dance as they shouted and laughed freely . They left their sorrows behind to bring victory home .
The danger was eliminated . Soon, the zombies would be no more on this street . Even if the zombies in the city center were to smell the blood, it would take them weeks to reach this location .
It was their first victory over the zombies .
For many years, they hid in the shadows, curled up inside fortified buildings . For once, they united under the same flag and launched an attack against the terrifying zombies .
And they emerged triumphant .
At last they could stand tall on the streets . They could shout without being afraid of alerting the zombies because they were taken out .
Honor was an enchanting trait .
They started with power and ended in victory .
Once engraved in the heart, even the smallest person could work up the courage .
Of course, this was only from the context of Jiang Chen's absolute power . Without it, these people could never be so united .
"Should we incorporate them now?" Sun Jiao asked in the private channel .
Jiang Chen's team still maintained the arrow-shaped formation . Soldiers in power armor surrounded the armor vehicles that were in the middle as they followed behind the survivors .
Lin Lin had been tied up by Sun Jiao without any consideration for her feelings, thrown into the back of the armored truck together with the junk .
As for her negligible protests?
Fine, if she could maintain her forceful stand for more than three seconds, perhaps Sun Jiao would consider backing down . But with a temper unmatched by her courage, Lin Lin's habit of provoking other people before immediately backing down only encouraged other people to take advantage of her .
Somehow she seemed to have no idea about this? Perhaps because other people had always compromised with her before . But in the apocalypse, who would bother? Who would care? A bad attitude was always something nurtured, so Jiang Chen kept his eyes closed when Sun Jiao tied her up .
It was time to teach her a lesson .
"No . For now, it's going to be a problem if we bring them back to the base . I also need them to promote our forces in their respective groups . " Jiang Chen laughed as he watched the spirited survivors with their full pockets .
"So you're purposely escorting them home?" Sun Jiao chuckled with him .
"Showing off our force is always better than using it . "
A heart-shattering scream suddenly sounded from the front of the crowd .
Jiang Chen paused, and after exchanging a look with Sun Jiao, walked forward .
The survivors made a circle, frozen in silence . The man who moments before had been chatting delightfully now kneeled before the door with sorrowful eyes .
"What happened . . . . " Just as he was asking, Jiang Chen bypassed the crowd and suddenly noticed something behind the door .
It was a boy's head with its eyes popped out .
Blood was flowing everywhere .
