Well, this was awkward.
Her memories actually recovered after being erased. Was the blonde girl’s memory an onion sprout, being able to grow back after getting removed?
Speaking of onion sprouts, Song Shuhang suddenly thought of something relatively curious—just where exactly were lady onion’s memories stored?
The onion sprout was her head, but every time an onion sprout was pinched off, her memory wouldn’t be lost.
Could it be that her memory was stored in her roots, which was her little feet?
Plant-type monsters were simply mysterious.
“I’ll try it out again.” Song Shuhang once again condensed the rune for the memory-erasing technique before reaching out to touch the blonde girl’s forehead.
As he did previously, he first used the magical technique to erase the blonde girl’s memories of today.
After that, he observed carefully.
A while later, not that long after the memory file was erased, it suddenly recovered.
It felt similar to a cloud storage function.
Song Shuhang inwardly guessed, It keeps getting backed up… Could it be the F: Drive?
Did the blonde girl’s F: Drive have the ability to restore memories?
At this time.
The blonde girl’s eyes had finally recovered from the strong light of the virtuous finger. She then raised her head to look at the shop owner who was in front of her.
The shop owner still gave off a feeling of vicissitudes and kindness as he did previously.
Upon closer inspection, one would be able to see bits of the shop owner’s muscles by his collar.
The shop owner’s muscles weren’t as large as body builders’, but they looked a lot more compact, just as if they were cut from marble.
Sure enough, as expected of a monster-like man.
Wasn’t my memory supposed to be erased? Why can I still remember the shop owner?
It wasn’t only the shop owner, either; all of her memories of the restaurant, the beautiful puppet maiden, the burly man, and the invisible people who had come to capture her but were defeated by the store owner were still there.
What was going on?
Could it be that the shop owner’s flash finger failed?
If it really was so, that would be great. I wouldn’t want to lose my memory so suddenly, the blonde girl said with joy in her mind.
However, the shop owner can’t know that I haven’t lost my memories.
Who knows, if he erases my memories again, I might really lose them.
Therefore, I must act like I’ve been struck with amnesia right now.
It wasn’t difficult for the blonde girl to act like she had amnesia. She could simply use the electronic chip in her body to bring up the ‘amnesiac expression’ to make her acting look realistic.
The blond girl thought, Alright, let’s do this.
Immediately after, she brought up the ‘amnesiac expression’.
She looked confused.
“Who am I? Where is this place? Why am I here?” She raised her head with a dazed expression on her face.
“…” Song Shuhang.
“Uncle, why am I here?” the blonde girl asked, looking at the shop owner with a ‘cautious’ expression.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Little girl, where is your conscience?
Just what happened to your conscience that you’re even able to call a man with an 18-year-old face uncle?
And so, Song Shuhang stretched out his hand and gave her a flick. “Stop pretending, I know your memories weren’t erased.”
“…” The blonde girl.
If you haven’t erased them, then say so earlier. Now I ended up wasting energy on using the amnesiac expression.
Song Shuhang said, “Fairy, can you come and give it a try? This little girl’s memory is very strange, her memories recover on their own after they’re erased.”
“Are you going to do it again?” The blonde girl’s face became bitter.
The puppet maiden was admiring the wall that she repaired by herself when she heard Song Shuhang’s call. She turned her head, and said, “There’s no need to try. I was observing the entire time. Her memory is stored in two parts. After one part is erased, the other part will automatically replenish the lost memory. The only way to get past that is erasing both at the same time… However, the other part of her memory isn’t stored in her brain, but in her abdomen. ”
Song Shuhang immediately realized. “The core reactor?”
The blonde girl stared at Song Shuhang with wide eyes, then she curled up into a ball, and clasped her shoulders with her arms crossed over her chest with a vigilant look on her face—she had never mentioned the core reactor to anyone, right? How did the shop owner know about it?
Song Shuhang turned his head to look at the blonde girl, and smiled slightly. “Because I am an omniscient shop owner.”
This was not the mind-reading technique—this was merely some simple face reading.
The little girl’s expression was so easy to understand that he could guess what she was thinking just by looking at her expression.
The blonde girl shuddered suddenly—she felt that the shop owner’s eyes were shining with a strange light, as if he could see through people’s hearts. Under these eyes, she had no secrets, no privacy, and no sense of security in her heart.
“Let’s do it again and look at my finger.” Song Shuhang didn’t give up, and went on to raise his virtuous finger.
The blonde girl asked, “again?”
Song Shuhang said, “Yeah. If your memories can’t be erased, then I won’t be able to let you go for some time. Those who want to take you back are quite troublesome. I don’t want to be involved in this trouble because of you. After all, I’m very busy. I still have to practice, level up, learn the language of the ancient era, learn magical techniques, go to school, and chat with the group, but I don’t have time to be involved with science guys.”
The blonde girl was the experimental product of a scientific research force, and the other party was crazily looking for her. If the blonde girl’s memories weren’t erased and she was captured by that force… the consequences would be disastrous.
It was instinctual for scientists to study the unknown. If those guys in the science department knew about the existence of superhumans like Song Shuhang, they would absolutely not give up on the idea of researching such superhumans.
Therefore, if her memories couldn’t be erased, Song Shuhang would have to lock her inside the Inner World first, and wait for Senior White to exit his seclusion, or for Senior White’s clone to come back… or wait for Senior White Two to show up.
The light of the virtuous finger shone dazzlingly again, illuminating the entire small restaurant.
At this moment, Song Shuhang placed his hand on the blonde girl’s abdomen, where the core reactor was.
Would the ‘memory-erasing technique’ developed by Senior White have any effect on this kind of core reactor?
Previously, the magical technique had been able to forcibly break into the electronic chip in invisible man number three.
Perhaps it could also break into the core reactor?
Song Shuhang exerted the memory-erasing technique with all his strength.
This time, the interface that was shown to him really did change.
Only one F: Drive appeared in front of him.
Song Shuhang thought to himself, Enter, then erase the memories.
His mental energy went into the ‘core reactor’.
The core reactor did not pose any resistance…
It didn’t have a firewall or anything of the like.
This was due to it being a product of an explosion accident.
The guys in the science department hadn’t even gotten to study it thoroughly, so how would they be able to install firewalls, defensive shields, and the like in it?
Song Shuhang’s mental energy entered smoothly.
Later, he discovered something not so great—the ‘core reactor’ began to absorb his mental energy and spiritual energy.
Tsk, he had always been the one to drain others’ energy by relying on the ‘lotus roots’. He didn’t think that he would run into something that would absorb his mental energy instead today.
Song Shuhang circulated the ❮True Self Meditation Scripture❯ silently, forcibly withdrawing his mental energy, and stopping the operation of the magical technique.
At this time, after absorbing Song Shuhang’s mental power, the core reactor in the blonde girl’s body experienced a change.
It seemed to have been activated.
The originally white core reactor now had a dark steel color. It was like it had cast Song Shuhang’s ❮Steel Hands Technique❯.
As the core reactor changed, the silk threads extending from the reactor became energy channels, connecting with the mechanized parts of the blonde girl’s body and strengthening them.
There was also a part of the energy that was fed back to the physical part of the blonde girl’s body, causing her physical body to strengthen slightly.
The changes in the core reactor were not over yet.
When the entire reactor was covered with a layer of black, a new color started spreading.
This time it was the color bronze covering the black color.
The mechanized part of the blonde girl’s body was strengthened again, and the strength of her body was also increasing.
Song Shuhang solemnly said, “This technology is very unscientific.”
“However, it’s very much like cultivation.” It was unknown when the puppet maiden squatted beside Song Shuhang and began studying the changes of the blonde girl along with him.
It felt like the structure of this core reactor allowed it to cultivate—especially with how it strengthened the mechanical parts.
The puppet maiden secretly transmitted, [When the black iron color took over, the energy intensity released by the reactor became equivalent to a Second Stage practitioner’s. After changing to bronze, the energy intensity of the reactor further increased to that of someone at the Third Stage.]
[It feels like a practitioner advancing… Fortunately, she is from the science department, so she doesn’t have to go through heavenly tribulations like a practitioner,] Song Shuhang replied using the secret sound transmission technique.
As soon as he said that, the puppet maiden and Song Shuhang raised their heads at the same time and looked towards the sky.
In the air, there was a kind of pressure that descended.
This aura was something Song Shuhang couldn’t be more familiar with.
Uncle Heavenly Tribulation was coming.
The puppet maiden added, “The heavenly tribulation of the Third Stage.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
Out of everyone, the only one the Third Stage heavenly tribulation could apply to was theoretically Chu Chu. However, Chu Chu was still in the Inner World, and she was still a bit away from the Third Stage.
So did this heavenly tribulation belong to the blonde girl?
Uncle Heavenly Tribulation immediately came over and gave him a slap in the face.
“This is too unscientific,” Song Shuhang said—he didn’t even know how to start ranting about how someone powered by science would actually have to transcend a heavenly tribulation.
“However, it’s very much like cultivation,” the puppet maiden added. “I repaired this restaurant with difficulty. I’d just like to remind you that the restaurant belongs to me and I bought it.”
Song Shuhang said, “I will take her away first.”
He stretched out his hand toward the blonde girl who was confused the entire time.
The spatial shuttling ability of the [Ancestral Witch’s Blessing] on his left hand was then activated.
He couldn’t let her transcend her tribulation in the city.
He took the blonde girl, and they disappeared from where they just were.
When they reappeared, they were already at an altitude of 300 meters.
