I’ll Add Points To All Things - Chapter 570
With that thought in mind, Su Yang said, “Then, I’ll add a point on you for you to try. I’ve already promised to give you more points as soon as possible so that you can embark on your King’s Path. So, it’s only right for me to give you another point now.”
After that, Su Yang and Janet returned to the virtual space and found a spot that was not covered by little Gru’s lawn. Then, they started adding a point.
Su Yang turned on the system and tapped on the [+] symbol above Janet’s head. A notification popped up in front of him.
[Are you sure you want to add a point to this monster for the fourth time? The success rate for the fourth point is very low. If you fail, the little monster will die. The success rate for the fourth point is 11%.]
‘11% isn’t too high or too low, at least I’m able to save one [Lucky Stone].’
With that thought in mind, Su Yang opened the system shop and bought nine [Lucky Stones] before stacking them on Janet.
After he was done, Su Yang left Janet with a few instructions before he left.
After walking far enough, Su Yang clicked on [Confirm].
Along with Su Yang’s confirmation, a buzzing sound came from the distance. Then, with a loud bang, a blinding light exploded. The yellow soil exploded and dust flew everywhere.
When the light and dust dissipated, Su Yang returned to the scene to check on Janet’s countdown timer. [23:59:01].
‘So many hours?’
Su Yang was shocked, followed by fear. ‘Luckily I was withholding myself from giving Janet an extra point. Otherwise, I would not have been able to feel at ease without Janet by my side during those dangerous days.
‘Right now, I still need one more day to complete Janet’s added point and the Platinum Mission can only be completed after another day. So, I have nothing else to do at the moment.’
Therefore, he used [Space Traversing Eyes] to return to Shanghai.
‘Time to sleep! I’ll open the treasure chest tomorrow when the cooldown of [Lucky Disfiguring Brick] ends!’
With that thought in mind, Su Yang fell asleep.
The night passed uneventfully.
The next morning, Su Yang woke up. He went to the toilet to settle his personal problems before washing up. He then went to the study to open the safe.
There were many special items lying inside the safe. The brick placed at the top of the safe had a layer of faint light enveloping it once more. Clearly, this was the [Lucky Disfiguring Brick] that could be used again.
Su Yang took out the brick and closed the safe. Then, he took a cup of water and soaked Sanque’s Ginseng Root in it.
The ginseng root melted as soon as they entered the water. Immediately, the entire cup of water turned yellow.
After he was done with all his preparations, Su Yang picked up the [Lucky Disfiguring Brick] and smashed it at his face without any hesitation!
With a “Bang!”, blood spurted from his nose.
Su Yang gritted his teeth and put down the brick. Then, he quickly picked up the ginseng water beside him and poured it into his mouth.
As soon as the ginseng water entered his stomach, a cooling sensation spread from his stomach to Su Yang’s face. The cooling sensation swept across his face and instantly dispelled all of Su Yang’s pain.
When he no longer felt the pain, Su Yang picked up a towel from the table and wiped his face casually. He wiped away the blood from his nose before calling out to the system to receive his reward.
After opening the mission list, he chose [Advanced Random Mission (Bronze-Ranked)] and A notification popped up in front of Su Yang.
[Do you accept the reward?]
After Su Yang made his choice, a small treasure chest appeared in front of him just like the last time. On the top of the treasure chest was an “S” and there was a sentence written on it. [Open the box. Your reward will be determined the moment the box is opened.]
Su Yang took the opportunity to open the S-Ranked treasure chest!
Different from the past, when he opened the treasure chest previously, there was no reaction, but this time, when the treasure chest opened, there was a gold light emanating from within.
‘I think, if I say “Wow, a gold legend”, I would look even cooler now.’
When the light dissipated, a silver-white voucher laid quietly in the treasure chest. The voucher was thin and there were beautiful patterns carved around it. On the front of the voucher were the words [A-Ranked Silver Ability Card]!
‘[A-Ranked Silver Ability Card].
‘What is this?’
Su Yang quickly opened the system and looked at the introduction.
[A-Ranked Silver Ability Card: When you use this card, you can draw an ability from A-Ranked Silver Abilities. There is no need to pay any price, including Silver Points.]
Su Yang was stunned!
‘This is actually amazing!
‘An Advanced Bronze-Ranked Random Ability could actually give out Silver Abilities, plus it’s an A-Ranked Silver Ability to top it all off! This is unbelievable!’
As for the classification standards for the Silver Abilities, Su Yang already had a certain understanding of how it worked.
Anything below A-Ranked were all meant to differentiate the strength of the ability, while anything above A-Ranked were powerful abilities related to space and time where each ability was unique.
For example, Su Yang’s two A-Ranked abilities, [Space Traversing Eyes] and [Hands Of Fate]. Both of these had become his most commonly used abilities.
As for the other B-Ranked abilities and C-Ranked abilities, they were much less useful.
‘I’m so thrilled to be able to obtain another A-Ranked Silver Ability!
‘The only problem is… I don’t have any space for Silver Ability at the moment! If I want to use another Silver Ability, I’m going to have to complete a Gold Mission!
Su Yang opened the Gold Mission and took a look.
[Gold Mission: Road To Zenith (4)]
Mission Objective: Lead your business to affect a million people and influence them to have a positive change.
Mission completion details: 154,686 / 1,000,000.
‘Unknowingly, two months have passed and the number of people who have completed the Gold Mission has reached 50,000. However, it’s still too low when I’m supposed to influence a million people!
‘Am I supposed to slowly wait for it to increase?
‘Or perhaps… Is there another way to quickly complete this Gold Mission? It would be best if there was something like the [Angel Search programme] where I was able to rapidly obtain coins and increase the number of people influenced…’
After pondering for a long time, Su Yang came up with an idea… ‘Maybe “Wolf Warriors” could do it?
‘If I look at this seriously, “Wolf Warriors” is a positive movie that could guide people into loving their country. Since “Wolf Warriors” is filmed by my own company, it should be considered as a Gold Mission as well. After all, back then, “Fighting The Buddha” did increase the number of people affected by the Gold Mission, so a cinema movie shouldn’t be ineffective!’
With that thought in mind, Su Yang placed even more importance on “Wolf Warriors”. ‘I suppose I’m going to need to have a good chat with Wu Feng this afternoon and try to get this movie released as soon as possible!’
After thinking about “Wolf Warriors”, Su Yang started thinking about what he should do with the remaining 20 minutes.
However, just as he was about to move, his heart skipped a beat like it was reminding him not to do anything else.
‘What’s going on?’
Su Yang tried to add the Bronze Point, but that throbbing sensation appeared again.
Su Yang wanted to add more points to other special items, but that throbbing sensation still appeared…
Only when Su Yang sat there did the throbbing disappear.
Su Yang did not know what to do.
He thought about it carefully. ‘I now have the lucky period, so do I have some kind of talent built inside me which is able to help me avoid danger?
‘Is… Sitting the best thing I can do at the moment?
‘What the h*ll is this?
‘Could the lucky period have taken effect elsewhere?’
Just when Su Yang was perplexed.
In a room with very tight-knitted security in the Imperial Capital.
A few big shots who were wearing the uniform of a police officer sat at a table, silently looking at the file in front of them.
After a while, the leader said, “Let’s have a chat. Now that Feng Yonghui is dead, we’re under a lot of pressure.”
One of the officers sitting next to him said, “Actually, this whole thing has been very strange from the beginning. Why did Feng Yonghui suddenly confess? Why did he confess on that kind of occasion? Also, why did he die mysteriously?”
“I have a feeling there’s more to this than meets the eye.”
Then, the office fell silent again.
‘Everyone present is experienced in handling cases, so how could we not see the problem?’
After a while, the big shot who was the leader amongst them asked, “Has Feng Yonghui’s autopsy been completed?”
The next person said, “It’s out. He died of a heart attack. There are no external injuries. We can confirm that it was a sudden death.”
The person sitting to the left of the big shot asked, “Did you find any drugs or external substances in his body?”
The big shot looked at the person to his left. “Are you also suspecting that something’s amiss?”
The person replied, “Yes. I have the same opinion as Little Liu. I feel that something’s a little strange with this matter.”
After they spoke, the person next to them replied, “We’ve done all the investigations there is, but there are no abnormalities, his body is very healthy. So, we can rule out the possibility of him being murdered.”
The lower ranking person paused for a moment before adding, “Also, what I also want to say is that we have been monitoring Feng Yonghui for 24 hours. Furthermore, someone has been standing guard in front of the camera all this time, so it’s impossible for someone to kill him under such circumstances.”
“Moreover, we’ve interrogated him many times over the past week, but we haven’t found anything out of the ordinary. Even the best hypnotist wouldn’t be able to do something like that.”
“This kind of request for him to betray his family and himself is completely against the human will. It’s impossible for this kind of hypnotism to ever succeed.”
“During the week that we were interrogating him, we could tell that Feng Yonghui was truly repentant. There’s no way he would have been able to fake it, not when he was truly repentant of both his and his family’s mistakes.”
Thus, the conference room fell silent again.
After a while, the big shot looked to his left. “Have you gotten the list of people that Feng Yonghui has been in contact with in the past two months?”
The person on the left nodded. “Yes.”
As he spoke, he handed over a document. On it were the names of the people Feng Yonghui had been in contact with for the past month which included Su Yang, Jiang Yan, and Jiang Yan’s father.
Looking at the rows of influential figures, the big shot rubbed his temples, feeling the pressure. However, no matter how much pressure he was under, he had to continue the investigation, so he continued to flip through the list.
At that moment, there was a knock on the office door.
Everyone’s eyes focused on the door.
The confidentiality level of this meeting was very high. Unless it was something very important, no one was allowed to interrupt.
The big shot was aware about this fact too, so he said, “Come in.”
The door opened and his secretary stood behind it. The secretary walked in, then walked to the boss’s side and whispered something to him. The boss nodded and a look of relief appeared on his face.
After the secretary left, the big shot put down the name list and said, “The higher-ups have made a decision. Since Feng Yonghui is already dead, this is the end of the matter. Feng Yonghui has already explained everything, so we just need to close the case.”
Someone asked, “What about Old Master Feng?”
The big boss said, “Lingnan, life imprisonment.”
The person sitting next to him asked, “How should we write Feng Yonghui’s report?”
The big shot thought about it and said, “Let’s do as you said. After all, all the evidence points to sudden death. The other possibilities are too unreal.”
Due to the throbbing in his heart, Su Yang only stood up when the lucky period ended. Only then did the throbbing in his heart stop.
As he had no idea what was going on, Su Yang could only rub his head. He did not know where he spent the remaining 20 minutes of his lucky period…
In the afternoon, Wu Feng took a plane to Shanghai. Su Yang personally drove to pick him up. The two of them chatted for a while before they arrived at the film company.
This time, Wu Feng’s arrival was very important to the film company. After all, for the post-production, the production team was their main moneymaker. Therefore, it was a must that they needed to show their respects appropriately.
Su Yang brought Wu Feng around the company and introduced him to some members of the film company before bringing him to the screening room.
Su Yang’s style had always been straightforward. He did not intend to explain anything to Wu Feng. ‘Let’s just look at the finished product! The effects of the finished product is the best proof on its own!’
Wu Feng was a little embarrassed by Su Yang’s confidence. He thought for a moment and decided to lay out his thoughts in advance. “Brother Su, even though our contract and the outcome of our discussion is for you to do all the post-production work, I’m the one who filmed this movie after all, so some of my thoughts and details are in it.”
“Of course your post-production can’t be bad, but if I want to tweak it a little, do you think…”
[Space Traversing Eyes] judged it as. [Silently Covering Up]…
Su Yang immediately understood what Wu Feng meant. ‘These are all excuses. Wu Feng is afraid that I would not be able to produce the results that he wanted. When the time comes, he would raise his opinion which would affect our relationship. This is why he’s preparing for the worst beforehand.’
Therefore, Su Yang said without hesitation, “Brother Wu, don’t worry. If you find anything that doesn’t satisfy you, just tell me. I’ll work overtime to help you edit it over these few days.”
When Wu Feng heard that, he was relieved. ‘I’ve been filming for six to seven months and was actually very tired. So, I decided to rest for a period of time after handing the stuff over to Su Yang.
‘Based on my experience, a normal post-production and special effects procedure would take at least three to four months to complete. If it was slow, it could even take half a year.
‘I thought that I would come back to the film company and work together after I was done resting, which would have been perfect timing.
‘But, I did not expect Su Yang to finish all the editing without a word. Furthermore, it had only taken him a month.
‘I’m actually extremely worried about the quality of the movie. I’m also worried that Su Yang isn’t going to produce what I want…’
Luckily, Su Yang wasn’t an unreasonable person and agreed to Wu Feng’s suggestion. At last, Wu Feng felt relieved. ‘It seems like his Brother Su is a reasonable person.
‘This way, if the editing did not go according to my requirements, I could take the initiative to mention it.’
However, just as he was relieved, Su Yang added, “But Brother Wu, I can bet with you that you’ll definitely be satisfied after watching this movie.”
Wu Feng was embarrassed…
‘One hundred percent satisfied? How is that possible…
‘Putting aside the fact that it was done in only a month, what kind of effects could Su Yang produce?
‘Even if it worked well, the movie is still a showcase of the director’s thoughts. Without me editing the movie, how am I supposed to fully express my thoughts?
‘Could Su Yang be a worm in my stomach who knows what I wanted from the pictures I took?
‘How’s that possible?
‘I’ve been in the film industry for so many years, but I’ve never seen a great editor yet.
‘Sigh, this Brother Su of mine is good at everything, but he’s just… A little too confident.’
With that thought in mind, Wu Feng could only nod perfunctorily and say, “Let’s watch it first. We’ll talk after we’re done.”
Su Yang smiled. “Okay.”
