I’ll Add Points To All Things - Chapter 799
When it heard that Su Yang wanted its help, Little Hus’s face fell.
It curled its lips and said disdainfully, “You might as well hit me then.”
Su Yang was surprised. “Aren’t you going to struggle? Aren’t you going to save yourself?”
Little Hus rolled her eyes at Su Yang. “Based on the amount of work you’re going to give me, I’d rather be beaten up. At the very least, it feels satisfying.”
Even though he felt that what Little Hus said made sense, Su Yang would definitely oblige it since it made such a despicable request.
Therefore, the beating was so intense that even the fur on Little Hus’s bolster flew out.
After the fight, Little Hus was lying on the ground “dying”. However, it was in a good mood because it did not have to help Su Yang anymore at least. It could rest now.
As for Su Yang’s beating, based on its original form as a bolster, it was almost negligible. After all, have you ever seen someone hitting a bolster and the recipient felt hurt?
However, Su Yang did not let it off and dragged it to the living room.
Being dragged by Su Yang, Little Hus had an ominous feeling. “What are you doing, Su Yang?! Didn’t we agree that I didn’t have to work after being beaten?!”
Su Yang gave it a strange look. “I didn’t say that. I remember that we only agreed on you ‘helping me if I don’t slap your face’, I don’t recall anything about you not helping me if I don’t hit anywhere else.”
Little Hus was stunned for a moment. “But, you slapped my face!”
Su Yang smiled. “That’s right, but I didn’t agree to that condition either. So, no matter whether I hit you or not, no matter where I hit you, I’m still going to need you to help me.”
Little Hus did not expect Su Yang to be so shameless and was petrified by him.
When Little Hus was placed on the table, Su Yang took out the contract for “Legend of Wu Zetian”, the promotional proposal, the mother version of the drama, and so on. He placed them in front of Little Hus so that it could smell the potential again after the proposal was completed.
Little Hus, who knew that it would not be able to escape, glared at Su Yang. Then, it lowered its head and sniffed the information before it.
After smelling the information, Little Hus raised its head and gave Su Yang an accurate answer. The viewership ratings would be at least 3%. In fact, it would be at least the top 5 television series in history ever since the concept of viewership ratings had been established in 2001.
Su Yang already knew about this from Little Hus. Otherwise, he would not have made a bet with Han Yi. This time, he only wanted to confirm it.
Then, he brought out his real purpose this time… A weird plan and a revised contract.
If people from Mango TV, Sky Blue TV, or even film companies saw this, they would probably be confused because the contract had just been signed, so why would there be a sudden change?
Furthermore, the contract was already in effect, so no one would agree to the sudden change.
After placing the two sets of documents on the table, Su Yang gestured to Little Hus. “Smell them again. Would it reduce its potential?”
Little Hus gave Su Yang a strange look and stretched out its paw to take a look at the contents. However, it was stopped by Su Yang.
Little Hus rolled its eyes at Su Yang as it felt that Su Yang was becoming more and more despicable.
After rolling its eyes, Little Hus lowered its head and sniffed the stack of documents. Then, it thought for a while and said, “There’s a slight change, but only a slight one. However, it is a positive change.”
A smile appeared on Su Yang’s face. ‘That’s within my expectations.’
He changed the angle and asked, “Try smell again and see if the stench is still there.”
Not only could Little Hus’s [Sniffing Potential] detect the potential of a project, it could also detect any side effects, hence why Su Yang asked that question.
Little Hus sniffed twice again, then shook its head. “No.”
Su Yang was relieved.
He carefully put the information away and smiled with satisfaction. This was the plan that he, Little Deeny, and Zhao Licheng had come up with over the past few days. It was related to the Wangs, Jiadian Pictures, and the two TV channels. ‘If this plan gets implemented, it could kill three birds with one stone!
‘Previously, I was worried that this plan might have negative effects on the ratings of the show, or on Han Yi, or the company. However, now that I have Little Hus’s confirmation, I’m relieved.
‘Now then, it all comes down to the implementation…’
After confirming the plan, Su Yang patted Little Hus happily. “Let’s go for a swim.”
In summer, swimming was always the most comfortable sport.
Even though Little Hus was a dog, it liked to dig around the pool in the summer.
Therefore, when Su Yang invited it, it followed him obediently.
Walking out of the castle, Su Yang saw Qingzhu and Old Tungsten chatting under the shade of a tree.
Old Tungsten said, “Have you heard? Little Hus was beaten up badly by Su Yang a few days ago.”
Qing Zhu asked cutely, “No. Why did Husband beat him?”
Old Tungsten’s lightbulb flickered twice and said mysteriously, “I heard that because Little Hus wiggled its dog’s paw, Su Yang took it as a provocation and gave it a beating.”
Qing Zhu covered her cherry lips with her jade-like hands and said in surprise, “Are you sure? Husband’s too overbearing by doing that.”
Old Tungsten blinked twice again. “Exactly.”
Su Yang was speechless when he heard their conversation from afar.
If Su Yang heard their conversation, it was only natural that Little Hus, who was by his feet, would as well. Halfway through Old Tungsten’s words, it sensed that something was wrong. Hence, it shrunk its neck and arched its body, trying to sneak away.
However, before it could take two steps, it felt its neck tighten. The dog then hovered in the air and was lifted up by Su Yang.
Su Yang’s eyes were burning with anger as he brought Little Hus up to him. He glared at it and spoke word for word, “Little Hus! Who else have you been spreading rumors to?! Why does Old Tungsten know about it?!”
Little Hus shrunk its head and said embarrassedly, “Almost all the little monsters…”
Su Yang exploded on the spot. “You’re crazy! I’m going to kill you!”
Seeing how furious Su Yang was, Little Hus quickly extended a paw and said in fear, “Wait a minute, why didn’t you ask me if I told them when I was joking around?”
Su Yang was stunned for a moment. He suppressed his anger and asked, “Did you tell it when you were joking then?”
Little Hus nodded vigorously.
Su Yang’s anger subsided, but he still stared at it suspiciously.
The more Su Yang stared at Little Hus, the more guilty it felt. Hence, it could not help but add, “But my acting skills were too good when I told them, so they all believed me…”
Su Yang was shocked when he heard this.
“Are you messing with me? Little Hus! You’re done for!” Su Yang’s palm started to glow with electricity!
Little Hus shouted, “Wait! Wait a minute! Su Yang!”
Su Yang looked at it, his eyes spitting fire. “What!”
Little Hus gulped. “Why don’t you ask me if there’s a special reason for this?”
When Su Yang heard what Little Hus said, he frowned and looked at it suspiciously. ‘A special reason? What special reason could there be? Could Little Hus have done it for my own good?’
He asked, “Do you have any special reasons for doing it then?”
“Er…” The little dog raised its paws and scratched its head. After a while, it started sweating.
Just as Su Yang’s eyes were filled with suspicion, it could no longer continue its act. He stuttered, “I’m sorry. I-I can’t make it up…”
Su Yang was speechless.
“Little Hus! You’re really done for this time!”
As he spoke, Su Yang shouted, “Mega Thunder Blast!”
Little Hus screamed, “When have our abilities been given names?!”
Su Yang replied, “I just did! I’m going to use an ultimate skill to hit you!”
As he spoke, the lightning in Su Yang’s palm suddenly shot up. The sky suddenly turned dark. Then, with a loud crack, a lightning pillar as thick as a water bucket smashed down and blew Little Hus into the air.
Little Hus could only shout, “I was wrong!” Then, it was sent flying…
Su Yang heaved a sigh of relief when he saw Little Hus being blown away.
However, after venting his anger, Su Yang took a look at the Lightning Battery in his hand. ‘That skill used 20% of my electricity.
‘If I calculate according to a glass phone’s production scale, 20% would mean 20 glass phones. Currently, a glass phone’s market price is 9,000 yuan, so 20 units would equal 180,000 yuan.
‘Indeed… War is the most expensive!’
However, Su Yang’s heart did not ache. It was not only because he was rich and powerful now, but also because Little Hus, the despicable dog, had finally been taught a lesson after Su Yang allowed it to do whatever it wanted for three days.
‘That despicable dog… Just because it’s got an “immortal body”, it always comes up with all sorts of nonsense. I have no idea whether to be mad at him, or laugh at it.
However, it hasn’t exactly affected that much. For example, Old Tungsten and the other little monsters would at most treat it as a joke and would not take it seriously. However, it’s disgusting.’
Therefore, Su Yang wanted to take this opportunity to teach it a lesson.
So, half an hour later, Su Yang held a meeting with the little monsters in the laundry room, which Little Hus had also joined. However, he was in the washing machine…
At the meeting, Little Hus complained that it had been bored recently and spread rumors about Su Yang. In front of everyone, it expressed that it would never do it again.
Of course, as it spoke, it kept turning in circles in the washing machine…
After taking care of Little Hus, Su Yang asked for it and Little Deeny to continue to think about the special item that he wanted to supplement his [Eye of Origins]. Su Yang went to look for Spirit Building to see if there was any progress in her research on the mutated animals and plants in the virtual space. Actually, while Su Yang was busy hiring, Spirit Building had been conducting some research.
When he arrived at Spirit Building’s room, she was holding a green leaf in her hand and mumbling something.
Su Yang knocked on the door and reminded her that he was there. “Are you still busy?”
Spirit Building turned around and nodded. “Yes.”
She picked up the leaf and said to Su Yang, “Look.”
As she said that, she flicked her wrist and the green leaf flew out of her hand like a dart towards Su Yang.
Su Yang already had some combat skills thanks to his [Intermediate Combat Ability]. Coupled with the fact that he had undergone a few spiritual baptisms, his conditioned reflexes had already reached the pinnacle of humanity. With just a slight turn of his body, the leaf brushed past his arm and flew over. With a “Thud”, it stabbed into the door.
Su Yang turned around and looked at the leaf. Almost one-third of the leaf had entered the door, and it looked very sharp.
Su Yang flicked his finger, and the green leaves let out a metallic sound.
Su Yang pulled out the leaf. ‘It’s slightly heavy, and feels like steel.’
Spirit Building explained, “I’ve been working on this plant that Little Deeny found. I’ve noticed that this plant—”
Su Yang added, “It’s called Philodendron.”
“Oh, Philodendron.” Spirit Building said. “This Philodendron mutated very weirdly. Its roots are all the same, but a few of its leaves have mutated.
“I dissected its leaves. Using a microscope, I found that its cells had turned from a quadrilateral to a very stable triangle. Also, iron elements were detected in its cell walls.
As she said that, Spirit Building took out a black magnet and leaned against another green leaf on the table.
As the magnet approached, the leaf trembled before it was completely absorbed onto the magnet.
Spirit Building then leaned the magnet toward the Philodendron’s roots, but there was no reaction.
Su Yang rubbed his chin in deep thought. ‘Is that why the leaves are so hard?’
Spirit Building seemed to have seen through Su Yang’s thoughts. She continued to explain, “Not only that, I also noticed that this plant is filled with life energy.
“But, its life energy is all concentrated on the leaf.
“After returning to the villa, I tried to transplant it into the flower pot to observe it. However, I discovered that its roots absorbed nutrients and sunlight. Through some kind of photosynthesis, life energy is generated and gathered on the leaves.
“This state is similar to the other monsters in the villa that have yet to awaken. However, unlike the little monsters, who have life energy, only the leaves of this one have it.”
As she said that, Spirit Building pointed at the other plants that she had collected that day. “They are all the same. Most of them have been locally mutated. They are all locally born and contain life force.”
She thought for a while and said, “I feel that their situation is similar to an incomplete awakening.
“Perhaps because the thousands of years of evolution let them know that only one aspect of development is more suitable for survival, they gave up on the path of evolution and focused all their energy on one part.
“I suspect that if they continue to grow, part of their life force might become magical materials like the snow monster’s fur and the Quickgold Monster’s eggs.”
Su Yang’s eyes widened. ‘I haven’t thought about this before, but after Spirit Building’s reminder, I feel like it’s true. Snow monsters and Quickgold Monsters could produce materials with special abilities.
‘Could it be possible that… These beings would mutate and evolve into little monsters without intelligence?’
Su Yang was shocked by Spirit Building’s speculation.
After the initial shock, Su Yang felt even more frustrated that there were no researchers under him!
‘Spirit Building and Sanque are already research and development type little monsters. However, they’re still “young” and haven’t accumulated enough experience. So, if I had a reliable research team now, I wouldn’t need to play guessing games with Spirit Building anymore!’
Just as Su Yang was thinking about this, Little Deeny’s voice suddenly rang in his ears. “Master, the Clown Sea Serpent is looking for you. He says he has a surprise for you.”
