I Have A Divine Tree In My Heart - Chapter 240
“Even the military has degenerated.”
In response, the military representatives who had come coughed awkwardly. They had no choice. Building a good relationship with the legion commander was necessary. How could they possibly not work on this aspect upon discovering that Lin Yao had a thing for beauties?
Masking their embarrassment with coughs, the military representatives immediately steered away from the topic. “The two of them have been assigned to you. You can get them to call us if you need anything. Also, your resources are ready. Here’s the catalog you can browse. By the way, all your past rewards are also inside.”
“There’s no need. I’ve seen them all.”
Lin Yao had one opportunity to apply for diamond-level resources left. He also had one opportunity to apply for golden-level resources because of his military contribution.
He had the browsing authority and had been browsing the various interfaces for exchanges of items. However, he had never found what he wanted.
In response to Lin Yao, the military representative smiled. “It is best that you take a look, Mr. Lin.”
Upon seeing his smile, Lin Yao understood what he meant. The military personnel also had their own interests at heart. Some of the better items were only available for exchange internally, within the military personnel.
“I see. Thank you for the reminder.”
“It’s okay, we will be colleagues in the future.”
After conversing with him for a while more, that military representative was prepared to leave.
However, just as he turned around, Lin Yao suddenly thought of something and hurriedly said, “Please wait a moment.”
“Is there anything else?”
“Yes, I’m sure the military has an inspectorate, right?”
“Of course… But please don’t worry, Mr. Lin Yao. You have not yet officially joined the military troops. Also, as long as you don’t…”
The military representative thought Lin Yao was worried about being inspected. In response to this, Lin Yao quickly said, “It’s not what you think. I would like to get some help from this department.”
Upon seeing the puzzled expression of the military representative, Lin Yao told him what he planned to do.
“You’re aware that I have a foundation. I would like the inspectorate to step in and help me supervise my employees.”
The loss of charity funds had always been the main concern for Lin Yao. In order to spend the money in the right place and gain more energy points, Lin Yao was also going all out.
‘I don’t believe you guys will dare to be corrupted when the military inspectorate is involved.’
When he heard Lin Yao’s suggestion, the military representative who had come had only one thought in mind. ‘Mr. Lin Yao is really serious about doing charity work!’
While exclaiming, the military representatives sought advice from the higher-ups and soon approved Lin Yao’s request.
“The higher-ups have agreed to this.”
“May we have a pleasant cooperation.”
“May we have a pleasant cooperation.”
Soon, the military personnel left the place. Ye Ying also left helplessly. Only Elder Wei, Qin Ya, Qi Qing, Sha Feng (the golden-level bodyguard), Lin Yao, and his four assistants remained behind.
Aside from Qi Qing and Sha Feng, everyone else present felt as if they were in a dream. The string of visitors and the king-seedling treatment made them find this somewhat surreal.
However, everyone came back to their senses soon. As Lin Yao’s assistants, Yan Yu’er and the rest were happy. When Lin Yao was stronger, their statuses would also rise with the tide.
Most importantly, Lin Yao could no longer do what he wanted after joining the military. That would possibly mean that he would only have the four of them as his assistants henceforth.
As for Qin Ya, it was the first time she was feeling slightly regretful.
It was not that she was not ambitious. Lin Yao was just too much of a ‘bug’. He had become a king seedling and a potential legion commander who would hold great power. This was way out of the league that Qin Ya had imagined.
She was independent and self-reliant, but her greatest goal in the past used to be to become an ace manager and establish her own management company. Grooming a king, who was also a legion commander with great power, was something that she had not dared think of.
In the end, amid the various complicated emotions, Elder Wei was the first one to speak.
“Student Lin Yao, you seemed to like the body-tempering combat skill of the Heaven and Earth Dojo earlier.”
“Of course. What a pity… We have the affinity, but it’s not meant to be.”
“This is not necessarily true. Combat skills are created for people to use. Lin Yao has a heart for the country and the people. Our Heaven and Earth Dojo is not stingy. Wait for news from me. I will help you request to learn the Heaven and Earth Brilliant Tyrannic Punch.”
Looking at Elder Wei, who had just taken flight, Lin Yao hadn’t expected such a turn of events. However, he soon understood the reason behind this.
‘The country has been paying attention to me, which has made them value me more. I didn’t expect that joining the military would bring me such benefits.’
After Elder Wei’s departure, the chauffeur named Sha Feng quickly made a move. At that moment, only Lin Yao, his assistants, manager, and liaison officer remained in the room.
After contemplating it for a moment, Lin Yao told them to familiarize themselves with the place. He then returned to his room. Afterward, he heeded the advice of the military representative and accessed the exchange platform of the military personnel.
The interface was basically similar to what he had seen previously. What Lin Yao cared about were the items available for exchange inside.
As usual, he first took a look at the personal information column on the interface.
[Rating: King Seedling]
[Website Browsing Authority: Level-S]
[Talent: Almighty Great Spiritualist, currently mastering the light attribute and thunder attribute, rated as a diamond talent due to his rapid thunder attribute advancement, has the potential to become a legion commander due to his light attribute, has been assessed as a king seeding.]
[Exchange Eligibility: One opportunity to apply for king resources, four opportunities to apply for diamond resources, 11 opportunities to apply for gold resources (previous rewards have also been included).]
The country had given him a lot of resources, but Lin Yao felt somewhat stressed. All these resources came with their respective conditions.
‘Fortunately, the requirements are not that high. I will be able to become a silver warlord even without these resources… Is this a private message?’
After accessing the interface, Lin Yao discovered private messages sent to him by the military personnel.
Upon studying this carefully, Lin Yao realized that that was a requirement of his technique.
‘The Paladin Body Strengthening Technique is actually a king-level technique!’
After reading the entire message, Lin Yao was speechless. To his surprise, this technique had an advanced version.
Of course, it was also not right to call it ‘advanced’. It should be said that the Paladin Body Strengthening Technique that China had obtained was not the complete version.
The Paladin Body Strengthening Technique had a total of three versions. First was the gold version, which was practiced by ordinary paladins and was not much different from what Lin Yao was practicing currently. What it lacked was the potion that had to be consumed during the training.
The Paladin Body Strengthening Technique was a training method. Ordinary people practiced it because they wanted to strengthen their bodies.
This was possible with training, but training alone would yield slow results. For this reason, humans, being intelligent beings, would adopt various means of aid. When it came to the Paladin Body Strengthening Technique, the various potions were aids that could speed up the training progress of the body.
However, this potion was very difficult to concoct. Its large-scale popularity had also caused the demand to exceed the supply. In addition, the One God religion also wanted to use this to restrain the paladins. Therefore, they did not reveal the ingredients of the potion to outsiders. This was the gold-level Paladin Body Strengthening Technique.
The diamond version was what Lin Yao was practicing now. It had the potion and all the holy seals.
Lastly, the king-level version was quite special. Unlike other king techniques, this technique was meant to be used during the battles of the legion, and it was very clear how to use it to reach the king level.
‘The Paladin Body Strengthening Technique has a halo or divine array that can connect everyone who practices this technique. If one masters this halo and leads 10,000 paladins who practice the holy light, this technique will advance to the king level. If the 10,000 people connected by the core practice it together, the training speed of all the paladins will increase tremendously. During a battle, it is as if 10,000 people have become one.
‘Is this a training technique that focuses on gathering the masses? It’s a pity that China doesn’t have the halo in the last version. Fortunately, it can be deduced.’
Unlike the other worlds, Lin Yao’s world would not stay helpless or slowly search for advanced techniques when encountering incomplete, bottlenecked techniques.
The four major countries had an adventurous spirit when it came to exploring science. Each of them had their own research institutes. These research institutes would do their utmost to find ways to optimize the complete techniques, let alone the incomplete ones.
The most classic example was the military boxing technique, which had been optimized countless times. Lin Yao and the others had been practicing the 13th complete version. There were also the 14th, 15th, and so on…
Therefore, after discovering that the Paladin Body Strengthening Technique didn’t have the halo, China made plans in two areas. First, it would “obtain” the technique from the One God religion. Then, it would research the technique on its own.
Lin Yao believed that they would be able to research it successfully.
‘The final stage of the Paladin Body Strengthening Technique is basically a battle array. Although the country does not have this battle array, it has the iron-blooded battle flag, the monolith array, and the eternal green array. In terms of soldier numbers, China is the strongest. It studies the army battle arrays the most. It’s highly possible that the holy light battle array researched by China will be better than that of the One God religion.’
After figuring out the techniques, Lin Yao soon shifted his focus on the resources.
After browsing, he indeed discovered more resources. Following a random search, some rare and special resources greeted his eyes, and Lin Yao was tempted by many of them.
[Exchange Eligibility: Diamond]
[Ability Introduction: The companion creature of the Ancient Tree of Life. It can absorb the light of the moon at night to form the Spring of Moon. Absorbing the spring water will eliminate the mental exhaustion of the person and restore one’s mental strength.]
[Note 1: After merging with the Water of Life produced by the Ancient Tree of Life, the Spring Water of Moon will transform. It can not only restore the mental strength of a human but also restore his vitality.]
[Note 2: Moon Well is a half-living creature that can only be born near the Ancient Tree of Life.]
‘Moon Well. There’s actually such a thing. If I had it, I’d be able to absorb the moonlight to restore my mental strength even if I didn’t understand the principle of moonlight. Plus, the Ancient Tree of Life is very suitable for me.’
After studying it carefully, Lin Yao discovered that the requirements for redeeming the seed of the Ancient Tree of Life were that high. It could be exchanged with the opportunity to redeem a diamond resource.
However, Lin Yao soon understood why this was the case when he read the introduction of the seed of the Ancient Tree of Life.
The seeds of the Ancient Tree of Life were easy to obtain, but it was very difficult to grow it. The growth of each Ancient Tree of Life was calculated in a period of hundreds or thousands of years. During the growth process, it needed to be carefully taken care of and it required a huge amount of resources to be nurtured. It would take some action to grow an Ancient Tree of Life successfully.
‘It is hard for others, but not for me. After planting the spatial sacred tree, I’ll plant the Ancient Tree of Life.’
Lin Yao made this decision in his heart, but he soon thought of something, and his eyes lit up.
“Wait a minute, I remember that the Ancient Tree of Life can become a pillar that supports the world when it grows to its peak. Isn’t this the function of the World Tree? The World Tree does not have the ability to traverse space, but it has the ability to stabilize space. This is also considered a spatial talent.’
