Chapter 85: Parasitic spiritual item (1)
Lu Xin had long known that satellite city No. 2 had a place called bengbu port, but he had never visited it. For a long time, he wasn’t a person who liked to travel around, and a simple life had become his norm.
However, as he grew up in satellite city No. 2, he knew that the reconstruction of qingang city was due to the existence of these ports. When the high-wall city was first built, there were still many lunatics and mutated creatures wandering in the wilderness outside. The transportation of materials to qingang city was largely thanks to these ports, and until now, they were one of the most important transportation ports.
Of course, the intensive transportation would definitely bring some hidden problems.
Just like this Mr. Xu.
When Lu Xin and Chen Jing alighted from the car, they saw that the entire port was filled with armed soldiers. Lu Xin guessed that they had been sent here to station themselves here as soon as Chen Jing received his call. However, before Chen Jing and Lu Xin arrived, they were not allowed to start a search.
“Where is that painting?”
Chen Jing’s pupils were a little demonic red under the chaotic lights of the port.
Xu Xiaoxiao, who had already fallen asleep and was snuggling in Mr. Xu’s arms, opened her eyes in confusion and pointed in a direction.
Chen Jing looked around, and two strong soldiers came over, one on the left and one on the right, holding Xu Xiaoxiao.
Then, they strode in the direction she pointed.
Around them, three warriors with plasma weapons in their arms were guarding them closely.
Soon, they had gone deep into the port and found the cabinet where Xu Xiaoxiao had hidden the painting among the rows of messy cabinets. It was hidden between several rows of tall cabinets and was very inconspicuous. When he saw this chest, Mr. Xu also looked a little helpless. It was obvious that this was not the place he had previously decided on to store the goods. Xu Xiaoxiao’s previous story had already stated the truth. She had a strong selfish motive, so she had hidden this painting in a place that even he did not know.
There were thick iron chains and locks on the cabinet, but without Chen Jing’s order, after confirming that the cabinet was the target, the two soldiers beside her had already stepped forward and used a kind of blowtorch that could spray blue flames to melt the iron chains.
The clattering of iron chains sliding to the ground was very obvious in the dead-silent port.
“I’ll do it!”
Lu Xin stepped forward and walked toward the chest.
The two soldiers looked at him gratefully, and after receiving Chen Jing’s tacit approval, they quietly retreated.
Chen Jing’s gaze softened as she watched Lu Xin’s back as he walked toward the box.
If Lu Xin were to describe it, he would think that it was a look of appreciation from a leader.
Lu Xin opened the door of the cabinet, and a cold breeze blew out.
At this moment, everyone subconsciously held their breath, and a few soldiers even raised their guns.
But there was nothing unusual in the box.
It looked like it had not been opened for a long time. The items inside were simple. Other than a few wooden frames and a few black handbags, there was only a painting covered in black cloth. It was leaning against the wooden shelf in the middle of the cabinet. Lu Xin did not see anything strange in the painting and Chen Jing’s detector did not react either.
Lu Xin stepped forward and picked up the painting under everyone’s watchful eyes.
There was no change.
This painting was very light and very ordinary. Only the black cloth covering it made it somewhat mysterious.
Lu Xin turned to look at Chen Jing.
Chen Jing nodded and said, “”Let the support team in!”
Soon, the heavy and orderly footsteps of the support team could be heard from outside the box. Two Men in Black protective suits carried in a flat glass box that was obviously thickened. Lu Xin placed the painting in the box and watched as the team locked it. Then, they handed it to Chen Jing with both hands. The box had a handle on top, which was suitable for Chen Jing to carry.
Lu Xin looked at Chen Jing with a worried expression.
If she was also contaminated …
Chen Jing’s eyes swept over, as if she had seen through his thoughts, and said lightly, “”Don’t worry, I won’t be contaminated. The study of this painting will only be carried out in a safe environment. And in the process of escorting it, if there are any abnormalities, I can resist for a while.”
She turned around and glanced at Lu Xin, “”lf something really happens, don’t I still have you?”
Lu Xin’s face reddened immediately. He turned his head to the side and pretended not to have heard what she said.
Chen Jing laughed and turned to the others, ” I will personally escort this painting to the Research Institute in the headquarters!
“Take Mr. Xu and the rest back as well. They’ll be temporarily quarantined. In addition, the goods they had stored at the port had to be sealed and transported back to the headquarters by two armed teams. The main city began to strictly investigate all the people who had contact with Xu Xiaoxiao. At the same time, inform the administrative office of satellite city No. 2 to arrest all the people involved in this smuggling incident at this port!”
Every time she said a sentence, the person beside her would agree and take note of it.
follow me back to the guard Station first, ” Chen Jing said to Lu Xin. the helicopter has been prepared.
Lu Xin nodded and followed her out.
When they got into the Jeep again, Lu Xin moved from the back seat to the front passenger seat under Chen Jing’s watchful eyes and put on his seat belt.
Chen Jing glanced at him and sat in the driver’s seat, ‘”‘You’ll learn how to drive later.”
Lu Xin nodded, his face a little red.
In fact, he knew that in other people’s eyes, Spider-types didn’t need to learn how to drive. They should be able to do it as soon as they picked it up.
However, he really didn’t know how to do it. Besides, he couldn’t borrow his sister’s power when he drove. Moreover, he felt that he would not be able to drive as well as Chen Jing.
When the car was on the road again, it could be clearly felt that the level of defense seemed to be higher. Two black Jeeps filled with fully armed soldiers were leading the way, and two cars were following behind.
“So, what exactly is this painting?”
On the way, Lu Xin couldn’t help but break the silence in the car. “I thought that only living people could become the source of the pollution.” you solved a source of contamination codenamed 072 yesterday? ‘ Chen Jing did not answer directly, but asked a question in return.
“Yeah, that’s a pretty low-level case,” Lu Xin nodded.
to a certain extent, 072 and this painting are essentially the same!
Chen Jing said, ” after a person dies, they become material. However, due to the influence of some powerful spiritual power, they can also become a carrier of the contamination source. This meant that, under certain circumstances, matter could also carry spiritual power. The special contamination source 072 that you dealt with yesterday, and even the contamination source 041 that was related to Qin ran, are all in this category.”
“Since the dead can carry spiritual energy, some special items can naturally do the same. “Previous research has discovered that through a certain ability or method, one can make certain objects carry and store spiritual energy. Some ability users can even use this special trait to do things that they don’t need to do personally.” such items are known as ‘mental parasitism items’.
Lu Xin furrowed his brows as he tried to figure out the relationship between the two.
yes, it means that a part of my mental power is parasitized in it.
spiritual energy is something that possesses a certain level of activity.
Therefore, things that possess spiritual energy are known as ‘parasites’!
“We have some standard weapons that are made based on this principle. You may need them in the future,” Chen Jing explained casually.
Lu Xin nodded and didn’t say another word as he tried to imagine what a parasitic object like this would look like.
He didn’t like the quiet, but he wasn’t someone who liked to keep talking to others.
It had always been like this.
During their long interval of questions and answers, the car had already driven into the Urban area and came to a main road. It was obvious that the surrounding street lights were gradually increasing, and the traffic flow was also more than that of the small road at the port, weaving back and forth.
After an unknown period of time, they drove to a traffic light and the car in front suddenly stopped.
Chen Jing waited for a while and could not help but ask through the walkie-talkie, “”What happened?”
The driver’s reply came from the walkie-talkie, ‘”‘There’s an accident up ahead
“There’s a girl in the middle of the road …. A proposal?”
