Chapter 109: Destruction (Part 1/2)

Translator: Strivon

Cat Eyes' pupils shrank as she sensed that Luo Nan was utilizing his soul strength . To be able to display this effect showed just how exceptional Luo Nan's soul strength was .

Before she entered this operation, He Yueyin had emphasised to Cat Eyes that Luo Nan was currently undergoing treatment due to a critical imbalance between his body and soul . As such, Luo Nan was not allowed to utilize his ability too excessively . Otherwise, the strength of his soul would cause critical harm to his nervous system .

Luo Nan had already courted death once before but the dangers of the mental conversation back then between the nutjob and the mad believer had been neglected . This time, Cat Eyes was able to sense it . Several regions of Luo Nan's nervous system were involved now and there were clearly some subtle warping and morphing within them .  

But what the hell was this aura?

If Cat Eyes could see it, that would mean that everyone else in the encrypted channel could see it too . Bai Xinyan, who was rushing over, drew out a long sigh . "Doctors with such headstrong patients find themselves in quite the dilemma . "

He Yueyin's strict and serious voice cut through . "Mr . Luo, I ask that you do not overuse your ability, so as to avoid unexpected consequences . "

These words were quite serious and served as a reminder for Cat Eyes . She grabbed Luo Nan's shoulder to put a stop to it . However, with a rattle of the chains seated deep within her body and soul, her entire self quivered a bit from inside out . It was as if she had been electrocuted and her hand froze by the time it extended halfway to Luo Nan . In the end, she was unable to move a single inch .  

It finally came!

Cat Eyes's heart was pounding but soon her heart was filled with vexation . This was what she feared the most after the operation at Limestone Water Village Pub last week . She had impinged on Luo Nan with her mental senses while he was making his psychic drawing and had suffered a counterattack . She had become the recipient of Luo Nan's unfathomable ability and had incorporeal chains pierce through her body and soul . She was imprisoned by this ability .

In the following week, however, Luo Nan did not make any strange moves . The chains' existence had gradually become undetectable but this only haunted her more . In today's operation, their close proximity did not spur any undue activity with Luo Nan . Instead, Luo Nan had helped her in a few crises through these chains .

Just when Cat Eyes began to believe that she had misunderstood Luo Nan, the true nature of Luo Nan's technique was exposed in this crucial moment . Right now, she was basically like a cat with a chained leash! If her master did not want her to move, then her neck would be reigned in by the chains, no matter her struggles .

Cat Eyes glared at Luo Nan with killing intent . This was not an exaggeration . She wanted to pounce on him and snap his throat with a bite .

He can just f**k off and die for using his soul strength against her!

At this very moment, the sound of an astonished Xue Weilun was heard .

Cat Eyes had her long-range perception ability . She did not need to turn her head; she could already see it . A figure had manifested upon each of the bodies of the seven special police officers . It was the size of a fist and its form . . . It was a tetrahedron with an inscribed sphere and an outer scribed sphere . That's right . It was the avatar that Luo Nan had used in the encrypted channel .  

Cat Eyes was a bit shocked . Her anger stagnated a bit . Just looking at this scene, she could tell that this was an anomaly that was formed from power on the mental plane interfering with the material plane .  

According to theories in soul studies, the effectiveness of the mutual interference between the mental and material planes was inversely proportional to the entropy . In other words, the fact that a symbol was manifested means that the efficiency and the order were high . The more orderly it was, the more efficient the soul strength became at affecting the material plane and the stronger the control ability became .

Most notably was the fact that Luo Nan was attending to seven bodies with a single mind and caused seven figures to manifest the symbol simultaneously . Even though each figure was exactly the same, even if each figure was just for appearance purposes . . .

Before her train of thought could end, Cat Eyes was able to sense the bodies of the unconscious special police officers tremble one by one . These were clear signs that these officers were regaining consciousness .

In the end, Cat Eyes could not refrain from turning and looking at the scene with bulging eyes . Xue Weilun had a moment of astonishment before ultimately realizing the cause for the change . He turned and looked over .  

Luo Nan let out a long breath . He did not make any fancy movements but the seven figures rippled simultaneously . In answer, minute vibrations came into being on the mental and the material planes .

It was as if a muffled buzz was ringing in Cat Eyes' ears . In that instant, the constant hissing sound of the Words of Krait turned indistinct, only to never recover back .

Then came the groaning sound of a special police officer . Once one officer sat up by instinct, then came another . The special police officers sat up one by one from the ground and turned over . They were still befuddled but this sort of magical awakening left Cat Eyes and Xue Weilun stupefied .

It was not just these two, Zhang Yingying in the encrypted channel went, "Eh?" She felt some indescribable emotions, so she simply tossed out a series of stupefied emojis, flooding the channel like mad .

"Ohohoho . Who was the one who gave him such a huge power up this week? Did a certain secretary and he engage in 'dual cultivation'? This progress is illogical . This technique . . . "

Before she could finish off the rest of her message, she was muted by a certain secretary . However, the meaning behind Zhang Yingying's words were the thoughts of the majority .

Xue Weilun was fine . In any case, he would just have capable experts explain fields he did not understand . But for the professionals of the Society, the hardest part was explaining things in layman's terms .

It must be known that it was easier to destroy than it was to create . In this case, 'destroying' was Fairchild knocking these clear-headed people unconscious and 'creating' was Luo Nan instantly awakening these unconscious people . From disorder to order . From high entropy to low entropy . The difficulties between the two were incomparable .

In the end, how did Luo Nan accomplish this?

Red Fox and Bamboo Pole made it to the reinforcement point and met up with Papercut . Breathing unsteadily, they gasped for breath and they nearly choked to death when they heard what Luo Nan had done . After two coughs, they guessed, "Fairchild knocked these special police officers out . Did Fairchild give Luo Nan the technique to save them?"

"You think Fairchild is that bored?" said the person who was really bored . Papercut was using a piece of paper to file his nails . He had yet to do anything in the operation as of yet .

There were no clear indicators for why the special police officers had awakened beside the projected figures half submerged in the chests of their exoskeleton armors .

"Just look at his avatar . It's exactly the same as these seven figures . Oh right, he mentioned something about his grandfather's Formatting Theory before . Are these things related to that? What is that theory?"

Formatting Theory? An imaginative idea that has long since been washed away by reality . . . It truly has been ages since it was last heard .

Bai Xinyan walked freely in the empty amusement center . The message history of the encrypted channel had been loaded in her wristband and was being replayed back to her retina as the keywords were being searched . The term ‘Formatting Theory’ that Papercut was suspicious of just so happened to be the same term that she was looking up . She shrugged her shoulders and broke into laughter .  

The seven figures attracted nearly everyone's attention . Bai Xinyan was not an exception . However, the angle she focused on was a bit different than the others .

A tetrahedron with an inscribed sphere and an outer scribed sphere . This was a typical figure in a standard geometry course . The appearance of such a figure now made everyone astonished . However, Bai Xinyan had long since searched through internal publications and found it used in the context of a different practice . And there, it was in circumstances far more exciting than now .

Soon Bai Xinyan was able to retrieve some information . She linked this with her previous knowledge and said, "Luo Nan, Scout . Looks like you're still a psychic! That obsolete theory has been dug out with new worth by the Luo Family, right when they're facing self-destruction!" 

Bai Xinyan blinked her eyes, cutting off the endlessly scrolling information projected on her retina . With both hands in the pockets of her jacket, she pursed her lips and continued walking at a brisk yet calm pace .

"Looking at Luo Nan's circumstances, it seems he's just a step away from ultimate destruction . Now, wouldn't that be quite the waste?"
