Chapter 328 Baby’s Gift

When the baby saw Zhou Wen walk into the valley, he loosened his grip on Zhou Wen’s trousers and skipped ahead .

The valley wasn’t deep . After walking less than half a kilometer, they reached the end . The baby pushed aside the grass in front of the mountain wall and revealed a hole half the height of a person .

If you want me to enter, I definitely won’t burrow in it, Zhou Wen thought to himself as he watched the baby vanish before him .

Zhou Wen waited for a while but the baby didn’t appear . Instead, he heard Li Xuan and Wang Lu who had followed his tracks .

“Zhou Wen, that baby ran away on its own . What are you doing here?” Li Xuan asked curiously when he saw Zhou Wen standing in front of a mountain wall, not fighting any dimensional creatures .

“I met the baby . He led me here and then burrowed into the hole himself,” Zhou Wen said as he pointed at the hole in the grass .

Just as Li Xuan was about to say something, he saw the baby poke his head out of the hole . He seemed to be dragging something with both hands, his face flushed red from the strenuous activity .

After pulling a few times, the baby finally dragged something out of the hole .

The three of them stared at the thing that the baby held onto . They saw a vine or root of some unknown plant . The baby pulled the vine out with all his might . It was taut as if there was something very heavy attached to it .

Seeing this, Zhou Wen reached and helped the baby pull the vine out . He was immediately alarmed . He originally imagined that it was because the baby had limited strength which made the pulling difficult . However, when he tried, he realized that it was very heavy . Despite using all his strength, he was barely able to move it forward .

They pulled the vine out by more than a meter but still failed to see what was inside . Wang Lu and Li Xuan came forward to help, and the four of them finally pulled the vine out . They saw something tied to the other end of it .

“What’s this?” Li Xuan looked at the item they had pulled, but he couldn’t tell what it was . He turned to look at the baby .

The baby gestured as it made all kinds of utterances, but the trio still didn’t understand what he meant .

Zhou Wen carefully observed the thing tied to the vine . It looked like a huge walnut that was about the size of a soccer ball . Its exterior looked like a walnut, but it seemed as though it was made of dark gray metal .

“Is this thing a walnut?” Li Xuan tapped the hilt of the Thundergod Sword on the item twice . When he heard a metallic sound, he looked at Wang Lu and asked, “Wang Lu, do you know what this is?”

Wang Lu also shook her head . “It looks like a walnut to me as well, but I’ve never heard of metal that looks like a walnut . ”

As the three of them were studying the object, the baby pointed at Zhou Wen and then at the walnut as it garbled .

“Do you want to give me this?” Zhou Wen asked the baby with a guess .

Seeing that Zhou Wen finally understood, the baby hurriedly nodded .

“Alright . ” Although Zhou Wen didn’t know what it was, it appeared to be quite important . Since it was a free gift, it was a waste not to accept it .

However, the thing was just too heavy . Zhou Wen summoned the Mutated Stone Chi . The few of them worked together to move the metal walnut onto its back before letting the Mutated Stone Chi carry it back .

After the trio walked out of the valley, the baby looked at them from afar with no intention of following them .

“This little fellow is rather interesting but too bad it’s a dimensional creature . ” Li Xuan shook his head .

Although there were people who raised dimensional creatures, dimensional creatures were different from Companion Beasts . They weren’t able to completely control their actions . Once they were allowed to enter human society, any problems would result in serious consequences .

Therefore, the League maintained an opposing attitude towards rearing them . There was just no clear rule that forbade their rearing .

Zhou Wen had reared the antelope and chick secretly . Thankfully, the other students and teachers always believed that the antelope had been brought out from Mount Laojun and wasn’t aggressive, so they ignored it .

As for the chick, most people believed it was Zhou Wen’s Companion Beast .

When the trio returned to school, the sky was already dark . Mainly because the walnut was so heavy that the Stone Chi couldn’t run fast while carrying it . All they could do was walk slowly .

After returning to his dorm, Zhou Wen carefully took the walnut down and placed it in the living room . Then, he took out his mysterious phone and snapped a picture of it . He wanted to know if the mysterious phone could tell what it was .

However, he was quickly disappointed . The mysterious phone didn’t respond, indicating that it wasn’t a dimensional creature . It was likely a native product of Earth .

“What is this thing?” Zhou Wen took a few photos and sent them to Wang Mingyuan who was extremely knowledgeable . Perhaps, he knew what it was .

Wang Mingyuan was surprisingly free . After a while, he replied Zhou Wen with a message .

“You can’t confirm it just by looking at photos . Once I’m done with the research on hand, you can bring it over . I’ll help you to study it . ”

“Teacher, how’s your research progressing?” All this while, Zhou Wen wasn’t very clear what Wang Mingyuan’s research was . All he knew was that he was studying what lay below Dragon’s Well and that it was likely a study of the white dragon . Zhou Wen was originally worried that White Dragon would kill Wang Mingyuan if he angered it .

However, after experiencing the might of the paper slip, Zhou Wen felt that his worry was unnecessary . A person like Wang Mingyuan wouldn’t easily put himself in danger .

“The progress is going quite well, but I’ve encountered some snags . At the moment, I’m trying to think of a solution . ” Wang Mingyuan sighed and said, “Currently, there are signs from other parts of the League that the chance of dimensional creatures breaking out is rapidly increasing . If it continues at this rate, it might only take another few years before the dimensional zones no longer have any restrictions on dimensional creatures, or rather, they will be very weak . When the time comes, humanity’s situation will be much worse than when the dimensional storms first happened . ”

This wasn’t the first time Zhou Wen had heard such words . In the past, An Sheng had also mentioned this to him, but he didn’t make it as clear as Wang Mingyuan .

“Teacher, will the dimensional zones’ restrictions really fail in a few years?” Zhou Wen asked .

“It won’t exceed ten years . When the time comes, the restrictions on the dimensional zones will definitely fail,” Wang Mingyuan answered with certainty .

“Only ten years?” Zhou Wen felt that Wang Mingyuan wasn’t someone who would randomly say things . If he said ten years, the chances were very high that it was the case .

“In fact, ten years refers to the point when the restrictions on the dimensional zones are completely lost . And during this period, the restrictions of the dimensional zones will constantly decrease . Humanity doesn’t have ten years . ” Wang Mingyuan paused before suddenly asking Zhou Wen, “Little Wen, if you are made to choose between pain and death, which would you choose?”
