Muscle strength increased by 5 points, bone strength by 6, and reflex by a shocking 10 points!
Brain cell strength:13
. . .
Jiang Chen quietly looked at his own EP; the difference was still quite drastic .
Muscle strength and reflex were okay as he was "only" behind ten something points, but she almost doubled his bone strength .
"I thought I was going to catch up to you . ' Jiang Chen forced a smile as he closed the EP in disappointment .
"While you are improving, I am not lagging behind," Sun Jiao flipped her luscious black hair as she said proudly .
"Looks like the difference is only going to get bigger . " Jiang Chen sighed .
The EP stat determines, under an ideal setting, a human's maximum ability . For most humans, the maximum stat achievable is 100, while an infant's is 0 . The stat thus quantifies the user's current ability .
Under the circumstance that the DNA is not modified, the limit humans can reach is 100 . If the modification causes reproductive isolation, then the person wouldn't be referred to human anymore, they would have to be named after another species .
Once the stat passes 50, it is much more difficult to increase it . Although Sun Jiao's "stats points" speed didn't seem to be as fast as Jiang Chen's, which double within a few months, this was due to her initial stats being much higher .
Just like in video games, the difficulty from level 1 to 10 is far easier compared to level 50 to 51 .
Seeing Jiang Chen sigh, Sun Jiao though his dignity was hurt as she gentle comforted him .
"There are lots of different definitions for being powerful . Body condition is only one of them . A lot of people on the wasteland possess a frail body, but with their superb shooting skills, they can still win a fight against people with body conditions multiple times greater . As well as people who have mastered mechanical knowledge, with the help of the assistive device, they're able to acquire strong powers . Also the hackers, they could infiltrate the mechanical people wandering among shambles to force them to fight . . . "
"Then what am I strong at?" Jiang Chen cockily laughed .
Sun Jiao rolled her eyes at Jiang Chen who was showing off . She then bit her lips as she stared into the distant darkness .
"Do you know now?"
"I just want to listen to my woman compliment me," Jiang Chen shamelessly said these words .
He was always someone that liked to show off .
With a slight smirk, Sun Jiao rolled her eyes at Jiang Chen, and then with a half-serious half-joking tone .
"Your power comes from the fact that you can gain the affection of other people . "
[So, the charm stat is maxed out?]
That was a unique way of saying this as Jiang Chen couldn't stop himself from laughing .
"For example, you?"
"Not only me, but Yao Yao, even Lin Lin, as well as everyone in the base . "
"Why don't you say leadership . "
"Different from leadership . Think closely, is there even a time where you used the slavery chip to force someone to listen to you?"
"People trust that you can bring order, they trust you . Therefore, they follow you to a brighter future, that's why they are willing to listen to you . "
"To be able to gather so many people willing to fight for you, it is an amazing ability . " Sun Jiao playfully winked .
Hearing that, Jiang Chen paused and then smiled, but he then exaggeratedly let out a sigh .
"What, are you still not pleased with having this power?"
"Very pleased, but I still have some regrets . "
"I can't tie you to a chair and seek revenge for the first time we met . " Jiang Chen with a smirk spoke into her ear .
"Oh? Don't you think it is thrilling to be tied down . " She smiled like a little devil as she also spoke into Jiang Chen's ear, and naughtily blew inside .
"Uh, I am not a masochist . "
[Although he was never against trying new things . . . ]
Looking at the side of Jiang Chen's face, the tip of Sun Jiao's mouth also rolled up .
"You've changed . "
"Ahem, I was not a masochist before," Jiang Chen said speechlessly .
"Not that," Sun Jiao laughed out, she paused, and then with a ridiculing tone, she jokingly said, "You are more mature compared to the first time you were here . "
"Which one do you like better?"
"Both . . . Although during that time you were also delicious . . . It is more attractive for you to be more mature," Sun Jiao with a finger on her lips said .
[What do you mean by delicious?]
Jiang Chen had a helpless expression on his face .
But speaking of that, within five short months, he did grow a lot .
He was previously just a young man entering into society with no notable achievements in life . If he didn't acquire that magical interdimensional travel ability, he would probably be inside his apartment, rotting away . Or even going back to his hometown and becoming unemployed while still holding a honors university degree .
Not even house, he would probably have to depend on his parents to not starve .
Now looking back from this perspective, he felt melancholic .
Seeing the adorable gesture of Sun Jiao, Jiang Chen also joked back .
"You've also changed . "
"Oh? How have I changed?" Sun Jiao put her hands on her waist as she pretended to be authoritative .
"Too many things . " Jiang Chen laughed as he started to count his finger . "More civilized, no longer licking fingers after eating cans, knows how to match clothing, learned to be compassionate, and even knows how to knit a scarf . "
Sun Jiao's mouth curved up showing her proudness .
"Which change do you like the most?"
"Boobs are slightly bigger . "
"Be serious!" Sun Jiao gave Jiang Chen a dirty look as she reached to pinch Jiang Chen .
Jiang Chen with a grin easily dodged the attack without any force .
"From being audacious to more understanding, or more feminine . "
Hearing that, Sun Jiao's face immediately turned red, her eyes frantically looked around, as her finger twirled her hair around shyly .
"Feminine? What, was I not before?"
Jiang Chen smiled but didn't reply .
Chatting was a great way to pass the time, there were glares of different light in the distance .
The ladder at the end had long been changed into a spacious elevator .
When they approached at the exit, Jiang Chen pressed the button for the elevator .
"Now that you have taken care of things here, will you go back to the other side?" Stepping onto the elevator, Sun Jiao said, not wanting to let him go .
"Mhmm . "Jiang Chen nodded and followed her .
As if Sun Jiao had already expected the answer, she didn't ask him to stay, she only spoke with a small voice .
"What is this world to you?"
Jiang Chen paused for a moment as he didn't expect Sun Jiao to ask this question .
But the pause only lasted for a second . Jiang Chen gently smiled as he tousled her hair .
"It was only a gold mine in the beginning . . . But now, my second home . "
With his words, a bright smile emerged on Sun Jiao's face .
That smile was beautiful .
