I Have A Divine Tree In My Heart - Chapter 59
Professor Li told Lin Yao to believe in himself and try to sense the electric current flowing in his body. Lin Yao instinctively tried to do so.
However, his pain intensified.
To sense the flow of the current from the electric shock was undoubtedly akin to rubbing salt into an open wound. The agitation of the current was already horrible, and Lin Yao simply could not tolerate the feeling of actively sensing it.
Lin Yao could only howl loudly to minimize the pain and numb the itchy sensation coming from the depths of his bone marrow.
Upon seeing Lin Yao trembling all over, foaming at the mouth, and looking dazed from the electrocution, the male researchers who had been force-fed the public display of affection earlier finally managed to vent their frustration.
As for Wang Wu, he was trembling along with Lin Yao. He would soon be experiencing what Lin Yao was going through now.
‘Damn it! If I had known this, I would have gone first. I feel even more scared now.’
The horrible electric shocks continued. The reason was unknown, but the more this continued, the sharper Lin Yao’s senses became and the worse the pain and numbness got. Lin Yao’s voice had turned hoarse due to the excruciating pain. He could no longer think. His mind had turned blank, and only feelings of hurt and pain remained.
Besides, the electrocuted Lin Yao had a feeling that time had slowed down. A second in the outside world felt as long as one minute, making it extremely hard to endure this.
Another minute later, Lin Yao also wet his pants. He had completely lost control of his body, and only the instinctive trembling and howling remained.
Three minutes passed under these circumstances. Senior Sister Jiang Rong’s heart ached for Lin Yao, and she glanced at Professor Li immediately.
“Time is up. It’s time to stop. Junior Brother’s body will get injured if this continues.”
Although the electric current integrated into the spirit energy contained two opposing abilities—the power of destruction and the power of life—it was always easier to destroy than to build.
The nerves of ordinary humans could be easily destroyed, and although talented people with thunder abilities were compatible with thunder and lightning, they could at most persevere for three minutes at a time in the beginning.
Under normal circumstances, it would indeed be time to remove the stimulation from Lin Yao’s body.
However, Professor Li, who was looking at the graphs, spoke at that moment. “Hold on.”
“Hold on? Professor, his body…”
“His body is very strong. Don’t look at it. Look at those electrograms. Have you forgotten the knowledge I’ve passed on to you? The electrograms show that he can withstand this for a longer period of time.”
Professor Li’s words made everyone turn to look at the surrounding electrograms. After looking at the graphs, everyone discovered that Lin Yao’s body had not reached the limit, even though he looked miserable.
“How is it possible? Normal people can only persevere for three minutes. Even Wang Wu, who has undergone the electrical current stimulation several times, can only persevere for a maximum of five minutes.”
“Could the electrograms be wrong? According to the information provided by the graphs, this is only one-third of what Junior Lin’s body can endure…”
“Three minutes is one-third of what he can endure? How could it be possible? This can only be observed in talented people who are in the second stage of development.”
Doubts formed in the hearts of a group of student researchers. In the end, Professor Li said, “It is true that a talented person with ordinary thunder abilities can only hold on for three minutes. Besides some precious treasures, it is hard for other items to cure the injuries caused to the cells. However, Junior Brother Lin is a genius. Besides his thunder talent, he also has light talent. This kind of talent is very good at healing the human body. When Student Lin Yao came in, I discovered that his cells have a large amount of power of light stored in them. Now, besides the power of life, the power of light is also repairing his cells. This is also why he has only reached one-third of his limit.”
As this conversation took place, two more minutes passed. By now, the inside of Lin Yao’s eyes had turned completely white and his body was shaking madly.
The hearts of the group of senior sisters ached very much as they witnessed this scene, but there was no choice. Lin Yao’s sunny temperament was too attractive. He exuded a special charm even though he was covered in sweat and had a dazed look in his eyes.
Unfortunately, Professor Li was the one in charge of the research institute. In order to develop Lin Yao’s body as much as possible, he was not going to shut down the instruments.
As a result, Lin Yao could only accept the ravaging waves of the electric current.
Wang Wu almost peed his pants as he watched this scene. His body also began to tremble instinctively.
“P-Professor… Today… Why… Why don’t I…”
“Your dad has spoken to me. If you don’t go up there, it’ll be fine. I’ll just beat you to death.”
Forget about the crying Wang Wu. Lin Yao had been lying on the electric chair, stimulated by the electric shock, for a total of 10 minutes.
When his body reached its limit and the switch was turned off, Lin Yao was no longer conscious. He only continued lying on the electric chair. His body was still twitching even after the electrical stimulation stopped, looking like the body of a dead frog.
His eyes were dull, his mouth was foaming, and he had lost control of his bladder. His body was also trembling repeatedly. The image of the talented person with thunder abilities who had been pulled out in a stretcher earlier was now vividly portrayed by Lin Yao’s body.
“Carry him away.”
Following Professor Li’s instructions, all the senior sisters ran over to Lin Yao and carried him onto a stretcher.
However, just as the senior sisters were about to take Lin Yao to the ward, Professor Li spoke.
“You don’t need to take him to the ward. Just bring him to the open space outside and let him bask in the sun. That will do.”
Upon seeing the puzzled look on the apprentices’ faces, Professor Li was cross.
“Did you not hear what I just said? Lin Yao possesses light talent. Basking in the sun is the best way of recovery for him.”
Thus, Lin Yao was placed under the sun. A minute later, another terrifying scream was heard from the laboratory.
This time, it was Wang Wu’s turn to be tortured by the electric shock.
As they listened to the screams coming from the room and looked at Lin Yao’s briefly-cleansed body, all the senior sisters felt a little worried.
“Most people back out after the first electric shock development. I don’t know if Junior Brother Lin will be able to persevere.”
“I think he should be able to. Junior Brother is a very resilient person.”
“I hope he’ll be able to.”
Prior to their first time, very few talented people with thunder abilities would know how painful it was to develop the electrical ability, and it was very normal for someone to be afraid after going through such a hellish experience.
In this place, both the senior brothers and senior sisters hoped that the talented people would persevere. As long as they could bear the pain, these talented individuals would most likely be able to succeed in the future.
While the group of senior sisters was discussing this, Lin Yao, who was basking in the sun, was still trembling. He was in a very miserable state, as if he had been ravished for an entire night.
However, this misery stayed only on the surface. Ever since he had obtained the Armored Body of Light, Lin Yao’s sunlight absorption had already reached LV5, so he was able to absorb sunlight more efficiently now.
Half an hour later, Lin Yao’s drained cells had been refilled with light energy.
The abundance of light energy also repaired Lin Yao’s body. In 30 more minutes, Lin Yao finally had a trace of consciousness.
However, only his consciousness had recovered. At present, Lin Yao felt like his soul had been separated from his consciousness, and he could not control his body at all. He could only allow his body to twitch from time to time.
