The burly man doubtfully asked, “Gold? Gold is a hard currency, I can accept that. However, if you could simply trade via transfer, it would be better as that would make things a lot faster and more convenient. Shop owner, can’t you just transfer it?”
Song Shuhang replied, “I don’t have that much money. The largest sum of money in my hands is about 10,000,000 RMB in phone balance.”
The burly man stared at Song Shuhang with a strange look in his eyes.
After a long while, the burly man said, “Gold is fine.”
Song Shuhang asked, “So, how much gold do you want?”
The burly man was dumbfounded. “It’s up to you, shop owner. I don’t know the value of this energy core.”
“Alright, then come with me.” Song Shuhang stood up.
The burly man lifted the box and followed him trustingly.
Song Shuhang took the large man to the restaurant’s storage room.
At this time, the storage room was closed, and the two ‘invisible men’ had taken the ingredients out along with them.
At the moment when the door opened, Song Shuhang connected the door of the storage room to a room in his Inner World’s Palace of Winter.
At the same time, he moved the gold sand into this room.
After the burly man followed Song Shuhang into the room, his eyes were blinded by the brightness.
In front of him, there was what could be considered a small mountain of gold.
Under the refraction of the light, the gold sand exuded a dazzling light—the light of wealth.
Song Shuhang said, “You can take away as much gold sand here as you can. As long as you bring it away, it belongs to you.”
He didn’t need to worry about the quality of the gold sand that came from the Wielder’s small black room.
The burly man said, “Can I bring my car over?”
“Is your car small enough to fit into my restaurant?” Song Shuhang smiled, and said, “I’ll lend you a trolley. There is a trolley used for delivery in the storage room, you can use that.”
The gold looked dazzling… However, one gram was worth about 300 RMB. Song Shuhang hadn’t been paying that close attention to the gold market during the year, but it should be around that.
If the burly man was forced to carry it away, it would already be considered pretty good if could bring away around 200 catties of gold.
200 catties would be equivalent to around 100,000 grams, and that would be equivalent to around 30,000,000 RMB, three times the amount of money the Mythical Sword Sage used to top up his phone.
This was the difference between physical and electronic transfers.
The real thing looked dazzling—gold that couldn’t even be moved. If it was an electronic transfer instead, it would merely become a series of numbers, and there would be no sense of satisfaction.
The burly man scratched his head, and after thinking about it, he gave the ‘blood demon core’ in the box to Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang took the core, and calmly said, “With that, the transaction is complete.”
Soon after, the burly man pushed out the trolley and left the storage room.
Several large sacks were stacked on the cart, each filled with golden sand.
It was a transaction wherein both parties parted satisfied.
Song Shuhang asked, “You can handle this gold sand by yourself?”
The burly man replied, “Don’t worry, shop owner, I have my own channels. I’ll be fine.”
The quality of the gold sand was so good that there was no need to worry about it. Moreover, even if he kept it for himself, that would be fine as well.
The burly man kept on getting the feeling that the gold sand had indescribable magic to it, causing it to be especially dazzling.
He could bring it back, store it in a room, spread it across the ground, and then enjoy lying there.
After pushing the trolley to the entrance of the restaurant, several big men in black suits trotted over, took the big bags from the burly man’s trolley, and then carried them to their cars in batches.
The burly man returned the cart to Song Shuhang.
The burly man asked, “Shop owner, if I have another treasure next time, can I still trade it with you?”
He thought of Song Shuhang’s gold sand, and wanted more.
Amazingly, although he wanted the sand very much, he didn’t have any evil thoughts in mind.
In other words, every cell in his body was warning him not to have any malicious designs on the shop owner’s gold sand.
After seeing the burly man go away, Song Shuhang turned around and closed the door to the restaurant.
The puppet maiden was repairing the wall at this time.
The fairy was simply ingenious, and had the ability to fix everything. Tables and walls couldn’t trouble her at all. In the end, she was an existence that could even repair herself.
The puppet maiden asked, “That core… its energy is almost exhausted, so what use is there in exchanging for it?”
Song Shuhang replied, “This core is a blood demon core. I have a blood demon bone on me and some blood demon pearls. There might be a way to recharge it. If I don’t have enough materials, Senior White should still have a lot more blood demon pearls. Besides, it’s not like I lose much by trading away some ordinary gold.”
“I guess you’re right.” The puppet maiden continued to repair the wall.
Song Shuhang transferred the ‘royal blood demon core’ into the Inner World.
Afterward, he went to invisible man number two, and continued to use the memory-erasing technique.
Invisible man number two was similar to number one in that his mind had a C: Drive and D: Drive.
After Song Shuhang found the memory file that contained today’s memories in the D: Drive, he deleted them completely.
“Great, I’m getting increasingly skilled at this, and I haven’t failed so far,” Song Shuhang said with satisfaction.
Then, he stretched out his hand and pressed on the center of the eyebrows of the last invisible person before performing the memory-erasing technique.
Number three had been the one to shoot at Song Shuhang, which led to him being slapped into the wall and smearing blood over it.
Song Shuhang suddenly found that this invisible person had one more drive in his mind compared to the two invisible people beforehand.
He had an E: Drive in his memories.
Song Shuhang curiously asked, “Huh? Why is he the only one who has an additional drive?”
If divided by the computer operating system, the C: Drive should be a person’s operating system memory. For example, basic functional memory such as walking, eating, drinking, and thinking. There might also be some driving memories, or perhaps some memories of a particular skill and talent.
D: Drive contained the memories of a person’s daily life. The memories Song Shuhang wanted to delete were all stored in their D: Drives.
With that said, what was inside the E: Drive?
Song Shuhang first used the memory-erasing technique to erase invisible man number three’s memories of today.
Afterward, he used the memory-erasing technique again.
This time, when the technique showed him the interface that contained the C:, D:, and E: Drives, Song Shuhang tried to choose to enter the C: Drive.
However, the attempt failed.
“Ouch.” Song Shuhang received a backlash from the technique.
He couldn’t enter the C: Drive using the memory-erasing technique. The magical technique failed, and he suffered a minor mental shock because of this.
Fortunately, the other party was just an ordinary person, and their mental energy itself was very weak. For Song Shuhang, this backlash barely brought him any pain.
It seemed like the C: Drive was an area he was forbidden from accessing.
Song Shuhang muttered, “Is it the ‘memory-erasing technique’ itself that’s unable to erase the memories stored in the C: Drive, or is it that my cultivation level isn’t high enough?”
I guess I’ll ask Senior White when I have the time.
The puppet maiden looked at Song Shuhang curiously.
What was the relationship between the memory-erasing technique and the C: Drive?
Song Shuhang said, “I’ll try one more time. This time, I’ll try to enter the E: Drive.” He then once again used the memory-erasing technique, lightly placing his hand on the forehead of invisible man number three.
This time, when the magical technique showed him the interface which contained the C:, D:, and E: Drives, Song Shuhang chose to enter the E: Drive.
[Warning, unknown energy breaking into the ‘electronic chip’. Booting firewall program.] From the body of invisible man number three, an electronic voice came out.
“Ouch.” Song Shuhang was struck by the backlash from the magical technique once more.
He failed again.
Song Shuhang rubbed his eyebrows, and doubtfully said, “Electronic chip? Isn’t it a memory area?”
The eyes of the blonde girl under the cash register widened, and she stared in shock at Song Shuhang—was the shop owner trying to intrude into the ‘electronic chip’ just now? How could that be? He wasn’t using any tools!
The electronic chip was a kind of biological chip developed during research on mechanically transforming human bodies. When the degree of mechanical modifications was over 30%, such a chip was needed to assist the user’s body. Moreover, in addition to assisting the body, the electronic chip also had a variety of magical functions, and it had powerful computing and analytical capabilities. In conjunction with the mechanical transformation part, the mechanically modified person would become akin to a ‘superman’.
There was also such an ‘electronic chip’ in the blonde girl.
The shop owner had not used any machinery or tools at all, yet he was able to invade the electronic chip in the body of invisible man number three?
Just what kind of creature is the shop owner? The blonde girl became suspicious. The shop owner… can’t be an alien, can he?
Song Shuhang thought to himself, Unlike the C: Drive, although I also failed to enter the E: Drive, it was because of a firewall. As long as I work harder, I should be able to break it. Again!
He stretched out his finger again, and placed it right between the eyebrows of invisible man number three.
This time, he directly enhanced his spiritual energy and spiritual consciousness violently.
The strength of his four cores forcefully increased the power of the ‘memory-erasing technique’ in an attempt to break into the E: Drive.
The firewall of the E: Drive in invisible man number three’s mind was forcibly breached after being continuously assaulted for two seconds.
To be precise, the part responsible for ‘defense’ in his electronic chip had been completely destroyed.
Utter brute force.
Song Shuhang entered the E: Drive.
Similar to the D: Drive, there were many memory files stored inside the E: Drive.
What could be sensed and manifested by the ‘memory-erasing technique’ was naturally “memory.”
Song Shuhang wondered, Can I look through it?
When he entered a D: Drive using the memory-erasing technique, he would only be presented with the function of “complete deletion”.
Perhaps the upgraded version of this technique could have functions such as observing memories, copying memories, and pasting memories, but it only had the precedent of ‘completely deleting memories’ for now.
However, this E: Drive gave Song Shuhang a different feeling.
Song Shuhang tried to use his consciousness to tap into the memory files on the E: Drive.
A ‘right-click’ interface emerged.
The above still only had the “complete deletion” function.
However, the memory files on the E: Drive were automatically played.
The first ones to be played were all screens on the testing of the mechanical body. This was the program and memory stored in the electronic chip that assisted its owner in managing their mechanically modified body.
In the end, several pictures flashed in Song Shuhang’s eyes.
It was a series of scenes of the mechanized blonde girl.
Was invisible man number three also a researcher?
