Chapter 136
"Best of luck to us . "
Jiang Chen shook Lin Chaoen's hand .
Just as Lin Chaoen said, if the mutated humans passed through Qingpu, there was a large probability that a battle would erupt . Hoping that the mutated humans wouldn't discover Fishbone Base was as unreliable as leaving a sheep farm open while praying the wolf pack wouldn't attack .
From the mutated humans' perspective, every "ancient human" was a stubborn coward, while normal people viewed these "neo-humans" as ugly and di*kless . From the start, the two sides had no chance of negotiating .
The two exchanged communication channels for both camps, and Lin Chaoen, in a show of sincerity, agreed that if the mutated humans from Area Seven showed signs of movement, the Defenders would notify Fishbone Base immediately . At the same time, they signed a defense pact against the mutated humans . Once the mutated humans started their march towards Wanghai City, both parties would send their forces to intervene .
For a common interest .
Lin Chaoen left right away as soon as they finished business to return to Jia City and report their status . Jiang Chen rested for a bit before a bitter smile appeared on his face .
"Mutated humans . Fu*k, why is there trouble after trouble . "
He had to speed up his armed force development .
But winter was approaching . Maybe under the harsh conditions, the mutated humans would choose to march to Wanghai City in the coming spring?

[Hopefully, the snow is thick enough . ]
He shook his head and walked towards the Fake Legs Specialty Store . On the way, he happened to meet Zhou Guoping who was chatting with the construction worker .
Seeing his boss, Zhou Guoping immediately sent the construction worker away and walked up to fawn on Jiang Chen . "Boss, need me for anything?"
As soon as he and Zhou Guoping entered the room, he closed the door and got straight to the point . "If I want to purchase heavy weapons, how do I go about doing this?"
Zhou Guoping paused and began to give it serious thought .
"If it's in Wanghai City, Sixth Street could produce it, but the Group of Ten Council has restrictions in place to prevent heavy weapons from entering the external market . Other than Sixth Street, the Beer Can Company in the north specializes in heavy weaponry production without any restrictions . Due to the long distance and limited production capability, however, they don't have a representative here accepting orders . "
"What about outside of Wanghai City?"
"There is a heavy weaponry factory in Su City, but due to high prices, not many can afford them . It's been a while since I saw them," Zhou Guoping said hesitantly .
"Expensive? How expensive?"
"Very . " Zhou Guoping forced a smile . "They only sell giant weapons . Based on my understanding, the 85mm tank cannon is priced at seven thousand crystals . Also, as long as you can afford it, they even sell tanks . "

Tanks? Jiang Chen's eyes instantly lit up .
"Pay attention . When they're here, immediately notify me . I'll head back to Fishbone Base after this, so you'll take care of the tasks here . " Jiang Chen patted him on the shoulder and encouraged him, "Do a good job . I have faith in you . "
Ignoring how the ecstatic Zhou Guoping tried to suck up to him, he left a few hundred crystals as an initial fund to start the store before he left . It was already the start of October, and the plan for the apocalypse was about to start . He had to go back and make some preparations .

. . .
After leaving Sixth Street, Jiang Chen headed for the sewerage entrance guarded by the Zhao Corporation .
Following the surge in trade between Fishbone Base and Zhao Corporation, the sewerage had been upgraded . The mold and dirt on the road were cleaned away, and the confusing intersections were locked off . The wall corners were even installed with light-activated cold lamps .

He took the elevator back to the surface where a soldier guarding the elevator saluted . With a nod of acknowledgment, Jiang Chen followed the closed-off concrete walkway to the inside of Fishbone Base .
At the shooting range outside of the wall, Jiang Chen found Zhao Gang .
"How do you feel?" Jiang Chen smiled .
"Not bad . " Zhao Gang nodded . After that terrible incident, the audacious man had become reticent .

"Ten for ten, damn, how is this not bad?" Chen Weiguo carried the rifle and spoke while laughing .
Jiang Chen looked at Zhao Gang with surprise and nodded appreciatively .
"I have a mission for you . "
"Mhmm . " Zhao Gang agreed without asking for the details .
Jiang Chen took out the computer pen and marked Area Seven on the map .
"I need you to head for Area Seven and find out as much information as you can about the mutated humans . Their camp spot, combat power, number of people . . . the more specific, the better . "
The more he knew about the enemy, the higher the chances of winning against them . The mutated humans were stationed in Area Seven, and Fishbone Base had no information on them at all . Based on the crossfire from last time, however, mutated humans were not to be underestimated even with armor or firepower .
Jiang Chen also didn't completely trust Lin Chaoen's words . It was far more reliable to send his own men .

Jiang Chen also didn't completely trust Lin Chaoen's words . It was far more reliable to send his own men .
"Understood . When should I leave?"
"Tomorrow . Take some time to prepare . If you need any equipment, just let Chen Weiguo know and take it directly from the armory . "
"Ten nutrient supplies, as well as this rifle . " Zhao Gang shook his head . "In terms of scouting, the probability of engaging in combat is low . "
Although the base had compressed crackers, in terms of convenience, it could not match the nutrient supply that could replenish both energy and water .
"That's fair . Then I'll count on you . Be quick," Jiang Chen patted him on the shoulder as he said seriously .
"Mhmm . " As expected, he nodded without any arguments against the mission .
. . .
Returning to the mansion, Jiang Chen happened to bump into Lin Lin who came out of shower humming .
Seeing her so happy, he couldn't resist the temptation to make fun of her .
"You don't short circuit?"
Lin Lin's eyebrows traveled all the way up, but as she was about to give a rebuttal, she thought about how she was under his control and froze in place .
Jiang Chen was surprised to see her hold her tongue .
"Oh, what's the progress on the mission I gave you?"
"Do you think scientific research is like masturbation? It will come out after rubbing a little?" Finally, Lin Lin couldn't resist the temptation to curse .
Jiang Chen looked at her oddly . He couldn't connect the vulgar words with the elf-like looks of this girl .
"Although I haven't done research before, have you masturbated?"
Lin Lin's face turned red, and cursed under her breath, "Pervert . " She ran away with her head buried .
[It's so fun teasing this girl . ]
Seeing Lin Lin flee the scene, Jiang Chen laughed malevolently .
But first things first .
He shook his head and put Lin Lin's matter aside to go up to the second floor and find Sun Jiao .

He shook his head and put Lin Lin's matter aside to go up to the second floor and find Sun Jiao .
"You're back?" Sun Jiao eyes brightened when she saw him . She dropped the items in her hands and with upturned lips, greeted him delightfully .
"Mhmm . " Jiang Chen hugged the passionate Sun Jiao and asked, "How's the bank mission doing?"

"We've shipped the gold back . It's around fifteen tons . The marks have been sanded off, and right now, it's piled up in the pool," she said intimately . Sun Jiao looked deeply into Jiang Chen's eyes .
"Thank you . " He touched her soft hair and returned her gaze .
"Of course . I'm so tired . " She stretched and was pleased to hear the light gulping nose . Smirking, she continued, "How are you planning on rewarding me?"
"Ahem, let's talk about this tonight . " Jiang Chen touched his nose, looking away shyly .
He caught sight of something strange beside the bed .
[That is . . . a towel?]
"Eh? What is this?" Jiang Chen craned his neck to look curiously at the strange item .
Sun Jiao's face immediately turned red . She dashed to the bedside and hid the unknown item under the blankets .
"What? What are you talking about?" Her eyes began to wander . It was rare for her to play dumb .
Jiang Chen was unable to control his interest and began to ask energetically, "The thing you just hid . . . . "
"No! What did I just hide?" Sun Jiao's eyebrows rose as she said fiercely .
"No, no, no, I saw it with my own eyes . "
"Illusion! It must be an illusion!" Vehemently denying it, Sun Jiao blushed and pushed at Jiang Chen who tried to leap over to see . She then slammed the door shut .

Sun Jiao sat on the bed and exhaled .
Her heart was beating so fast .
Sun Jiao sat on the bed and exhaled .
Her heart was beating so fast .
"Ahhhhh, this is too embarrassing . It's not like me!"
Sun Jiao's hands patted her burning-red face as she dove into the bed . She reached for the blanket and covered herself like an ostrich .
The treasure hidden under the blanket was exposed; it was an old magazine . Based on the publication date, it was printed before the war .
"How to capture your boyfriend's heart - weave a scarf for him in the cold winter"
"Attached: Simple weaving technique"
Sun Jiao, who had been born in a survival base and lived wandering the wasteland, didn't know what love was . It was something she had never learned before . She picked up this magazine from the bank, unaware of what scarves were, but she was intrigued by the printed words on the front page .
Could a scarf be this magical? Sun Jiao didn't really understand .
But if Jiang Chen came from before the war, then it had to be useful for him .
She firmly believed this .
. . .
Standing by the poolside, Jiang Chen observed the lustrous gold . In the apocalypse, this gold was worth less than dirt .
He took a deep breath and submerged his conscious into the storage dimension .
Compared to before, the storage dimension seemed to have expanded by a lot—from one cubic meter to five cubic meters now . But Jiang Chen was still clueless on how the interdimensional bracelet evolved . Charging it repeatedly seemed to be useful, but otherwise, it was not obvious .

The overload from last time seemed to have increased the size of the storage dimensional by quite a lot, but Jiang Chen didn't dare to do anything so dangerous again . Instead of overloading it, it could potentially "fry" the bracelet .
Putting the gold into the storage dimension, Jiang Chen was prepared to return to the modern world, but he suddenly remembered the "promise" he made with Sun Jiao . A smirk appeared on his face .
[I'll go back tomorrow morning . ]
