es would realize that the guns had actually shot out nanowaves. In the Five Galaxies, nanowaves were only at an experimental stage, and far from any real application.
The nanowave experts were not the only ones to feel dejected. The scientific technology demonstrated by both sides in this holographic recording made all scientists realize the difference in their abilities. The difference was not negligible, but a truly huge disparity.
Who were these people?
It was not that the world had never heard of the Three Forces - Black Cove, the Sanctuary and the MPA. The Three Forces were deeply entangled with many local governments around the world, but the magnitude of this war was enough to overcome the suppressive forces of these governments.
Information about the Three Forces began to leak, little by little in the virtual world. The Sanctuary was never heard of by the public, and were now a deep mystery to the people. The benevolent MPA now inspired fear.
For anyone with a little common sense, it was easy to realize that the former peace was over.
Together with the Sanctuary that had not been openly exposed thus far, the Three Forces had enough power to rival that of the Five Galaxies, governor of their worlds. This meant that the Three Forces were not ruled by the laws of the Five Galaxies. With the authorities at war, how could the people live peacefully?
All these matter were, of course, ignored by Ye Chong.
Ye Chong waited for Wang Weixing’s return, the only thing that mattered to him. According to Wang Weixing’s schedule in the hospital building’s control photon processor, this was the day Wang Weixing would come back. Ye Chong was afraid that the chaos on Windstar would delay his return.
However, Ye Chong did not expect Wang Weixing to not only reach Windstar on time, but head straight towards the hospital from his flight without returning home to rest. A doctor’s heart was still difficult for Ye Chong to understand. Windstar had too many casualties that swarmed the hospital, and the medical team was overwhelmed. That was why Wang Weixing had rushed to the hospital.
With his part of the plan perfectly executed, Mu retired to give way to Shang. Shang took the schedule between them seriously, and would not allow himself to have less surfacing time. As for Mu, he was uninterested in "surfacing", and seldom argued with Shang. Fortunately, Shang had not developed the habit of taking advantage of Mu.
"So many people!" Shang sighed.
"Yeah, it’s a lot of them!" The large hospital building was swarming with people, and the wounded could be seen everywhere. Windstar Hospital was not only a medical facility, but also a research center. However, due to the enormous volume of casualties, all medical staff had been called to service. Looking at the situation before him, Ye Chong began to have doubts on his decision in executing this plan.
Shang affected a sympathetic tone as he said, "Sigh, war, such a horrible thing!"
Ye Chong burst his bubble. "Don’t pretend, you’re the main culprit!"
"Cough, cough, Ye, don’t simply say these things, I’m as pure as an angel!" Shang lied outright.
"What’s an angel?" Ye Chong’s many adventures in the outside world had obviously not touched on old legends and myths.
"It’s a mythical God with wings, one with a pure and kind heart."
"Oh, a birdman!"
"Cough, cough …"
Ye Chong finally saw Wang Weixing, and immediately find him looking very familiar. When Ye Chong had just escaped from Black Cove and boarded a starship, he had encountered one old Mr Wang, and he looked just like Wang Weixing. Was this really a coincidence? Nonetheless, aside from a tiny sigh on how small the world was, Ye Chong had no other concerns. He was wearing a mask back then, and Wang Weixing would probably not recognize him.
Wang Weixing looked weary from his long interstellar travel, and the fact that he had not rested since he stepped into the hospital only made him look even more tired. Wang Weixing smiled and said, "Young man, have a sit."
Ye Chong found a seat and sat down without hesitation.
After Ye Chong finished explaining his situation, Wang Weixing spoke after a moment’s thought, "Alright, why don’t I perform a full examination on you first. Your issue might be more complicated, and I’ll need time to do some research. Besides, as you can see, there’s a lot of people out there who needs immediate medical attention, so I’ll need longer."
Ye Chong asked, "How long?"
Wang Weixing gave it a thought and said, "Hmm about four days."
Ye Chong nodded. "Alright, then I’ll come back in four days."
Wang Weixing gave a small laugh. "Thank you for your understanding."
Ye Chong replied calmly, "It’s alright." While he really hoped for Wang Weixing to examine him immediately, Ye Chong understood that it was not an option. Ever since he stepped into the hospital, he had seen many casualties, and he could do nothing to ease the situation.
He quietly returned to the main hospital building’s photon processor control room. Four days was not too long for Ye Chong. He had plenty of things to keep him occupied in the meantime. Alchemy, for example, or that chip left by Lan Yixing, or meditation. The control room was spacious enough for him to even practice piloting Guardian. As for Mu and Shang, they would help him find out more about the man called Gao Shichang.
Ye Chong did not know that the investigation on Gao Shichang was going to be a lot harder than expected.
