I Have A Divine Tree In My Heart - Chapter 57
Senior Sister Jiang had wanted to look approachable. However, she was in a state of lethargy with dark eye circles on her face due to the fatigue that had accumulated over the past week. Lin Yao found it really hard to appreciate her smile, especially amidst the constant tragic howling that made his heart tremble.
“Hello, Senior Sister Jiang. I hope the person screaming horribly is not doing so due to the development of their thunder talent.”
Lin Yao harbored a last glimmer of hope that Senior Sister Jiang would deny this. However, his hopes fell through.
“Well, Brother Lin, don’t be afraid. One cannot achieve stellar success without going through the worst hardships. The developmental process is very painful, but the joy of success is equally astounding.”
Pulling Lin Yao along, Senior Sister Jiang cheered him up in a soft and gentle voice by telling him about the advantages of developing his thunder ability.
This scene was witnessed by a man who entered the place after them. He was a tall, strong-looking man who exuded an extraordinary aura. Nevertheless, he was also trembling all over as he stepped into Professor Li’s research institute. His body was shrunken, like a freezing quail’s, and he wanted very much to bury his head in his chest.
Especially after seeing Senior Sister Jiang’s back view, it seemed as if he had seen the king of demons. He was so terrified that he could hardly catch his breath.
The shrill, horrifying scream attracted the attention of Lin Yao and Jiang Rong. When she heard the man scream, Jiang Rong’s expression changed before Lin Yao could figure out anything.
“Demon Jiang… Student Wang Wu, it seems that you’ve not been given enough stimulation previously.”
Jiang Rong was sneering coldly, making the eight-foot-tall man standing opposite her almost cry. Lin Yao had also gained a new understanding of Senior Sister Jiang.
Just as he exclaimed inwardly, Jiang Rong seemed to think of something. She quickly banished the cold sneer on her face and then gently told Lin Yao, “Student Lin, we were just joking. Actually, I’m on very good terms with people like you, who have thunder talent.”
After seeing Jiang Rong’s transformation, Lin Yao had no clue what to do. On the other hand, Wang Wu’s eyes had almost popped. This was the first time he had seen Demon King Jiang, whom everyone in the research institute was afraid of, speaking in such a gentle tone. A terrifying chill went through his heart. At the same time, he was also curious about Lin Yao’s identity and how he could make Demon King Jiang that gentle.
With this thought in mind, he sized up Lin Yao for the first time and was stunned after seeing Lin Yao’s entire body.
“This feels dazzling. Damn it! How can there be such a special effect in reality?! Why are you that handsome?”
Lin Yao’s handsome looks made this guy suffer an emotional breakdown. Upon seeing the cold and aloof Demon King Jiang transform into a gentle older sister that consoled Lin Yao repeatedly, he felt even more indignant.
“Damn! Why don’t I get such treatment? Can he get away with everything just because he’s handsome?
“Yes, he can get away with everything just because he’s handsome.”
Wang Wu, who followed Demon King Jiang into the research institute, clearly saw Lin Yao attracting all the attention of the unmarried female researchers in the research institute. The moment he arrived, he was greeted with warm greetings and served tea and snacks.
This caused a furore in the hearts of all the men in the institute, and Lin Yao’s scalp also felt numb due to the waves of malice coming toward him.
However, at the moment, Lin Yao’s mind was no longer preoccupied with the anger of those men. He was paying attention to a man in a white lab coat who had just exited a tightly-guarded laboratory in the institute.
Unlike the researchers, this man seemed to be a patient, although he was also clad in a white lab coat.
Furthermore, Lin Yao’s heart turned cold when he saw his situation.
The man looked really miserable. As he was lying down, he was pushed out of the enclosed research room by someone.
While lying on the bed, his entire body was still trembling as if he was a dying frog. At the same time, Lin Yao saw white foam on his mouth, and there was no trace of life in his eyes. There was also a large pool of liquid emerging from his lower body.
‘Damn it! He has a dazed look in his eyes and he is suffering from urinary incontinence. Is it that horrifying?’
Lin Yao was frightened by this scene. Wang Wu, who had been glaring furiously at Lin Yao a moment earlier, simply collapsed on the ground. Cold sweat emerged on his face constantly.
“P-Professor, I have something else to attend to today. Why… Why don’t we do that tomorrow…”
“Humph! Tomorrow… Tomorrow, will you no longer be afraid?”
“I… I got it. Professor, come on. I’m not afraid.”
Although he claimed he was not frightened, Wang Wu was stammering.
However, Professor Li did not respond to him immediately this time. Instead, he glanced at Lin Yao.
Even he felt quite taken aback by the way Lin Yao’s entire body was glowing.
“I really wish to research this, but unfortunately, the state prohibits performing experiments on human bodies privately unless the individual consents to it.”
Professor Li glanced at Lin Yao as he expressed his regret.
“You heard the painful screams earlier. I’d like to tell you that although the developmental process is painful, there is no free lunch in this world. No one can improve your ability without you experiencing any hardships.”
“No, I can continue to improve as long as I bask in the sun.”
Lin Yao objected, but he was not joking. The transformed Armored Body of Light allowed the power of light to be stored in Lin Yao’s body cells and fine-tune his body at the same time, making his body evolve to perfection.
This kind of evolution from man to god could not be achieved with one step. One had to turn from a mortal to an Iron Person and then advance from an Iron Person to a Silver Person.
The fine-tuning of the Armored Body of Light was meant to make Lin Yao’s body automatically evolve into a Silver Person.
It could be said that Lin Yao did not need to do anything. So long as he continued to bask in the sun, he would become stronger.
This was unlike martial artists who had to experience hardships in order to improve their strength, but there were always a few exceptions in the world.
For example, a huge dragon could rely on sleeping to improve its strength, and the son of god would grow up and reach the gold level. There were differences between humans.
Upon being rebuked by Lin Yao, Professor Li looked disappointed and speechless. He wanted to use other words to motivate Lin Yao and rouse his fighting spirit.
However, he heard Lin Yao’s voice before he could say anything.
“Professor, when can the development of the thunder ability begin?”
“Well, you’re no longer afraid? Didn’t you say that you can advance by basking in the sun?”
“Of course I’m afraid. But as you said, how can you improve your strength without experiencing any hardships? As for basking in the sun, it will take too long.”
The evolution of the body would be very gradual if he merely basked in the sun without going through any hardships. He might not even complete the evolution in a decade. Furthermore, this was a great world with a constant Spirit Energy Revival. Although the king was the top powerhouse of mankind now, this might not be the case in the future. Also, if China could not maintain its peace and stability, all the weak people would have to experience hardships.
Lin Yao didn’t want to regret anything when the moment of despair came. He had a system and he was unwilling to be ordinary.
He was currently seizing every minute.
Seeing the determination in Lin Yao’s eyes, white-haired Professor Li nodded with satisfaction.
“Very good. Sure enough, I’m a good judge of character. The two of you, please come with me.”
Upon finishing his words, Professor Li waved his hand and led a group of research apprentices, as well as Lin Yao and Wang Wu, into that enclosed room.
This room contained numerous high-end instruments and screens. The screens were all filled with words and various kinds of lines. The scene bedazzled Lin Yao, who could not figure out what was happening.
‘Forget it, this is the field of technology magnates. I’ll just remain a martial artist.’
Lin Yao gave up trying to decipher most of the things in the room. The only thing he noticed was the chair in the middle of the room, which was full of conductive patches.
At the sight of that chair, Lin Yad had the worst premonition. On the other hand, Wang Wu looked like he was about to collapse.
As his face was filled with panic and horror, the professor spoke.
“Wang Wu, get up there.”
“Um, Professor, I’m an old man. Please take care of this Junior Brother first. Junior Brother, you can go first.”
Wang Wu was extremely terrified of that chair and was prepared to delay this as much as possible.
Upon seeing this, Lin Yao did not hesitate. He took a deep breath and walked toward the chair.
The chair had already been cleaned. However, before the experiment, Senior Sister Jiang approached Lin Yao. She stretched her hands and grabbed his clothes, wanting to remove them in front of everyone. This made Lin Yao jump in surprise.
“Senior Sister?” Lin Yao said in a high-pitched voice.
