The Empress's Gigolo Chapter 372
"Inspection!" The policemen was knocking on his car's window.
Ren Baqian searched all over his body for the identity document issued by some department, but couldn't find it. Furthermore, he didn't even have his wallet with him. Nowadays, even a lollipop could be paid for with a cell phone. In that case, who would bring along his or her wallet, identity document and similar items!
"Please wait, let me make a phone call!" Ren Baqian said after winding down the window.
"It doesn't matter who you are calling. I have to do an inspection anyway!" That police officer was displeased and annoyed by people who made phone calls for the slightest matter. It seemed as if they couldn't prove their identity without doing so.
"I'm from one of the nation's secret departments, and some of the things in the car are classified!" Ren Baqian put on a face. He had sensed an ominous feeling earlier, and it was now coming true.
Usually, he wouldn't see the police when going about his business, but it was just his luck that there were two corpses in his trunk.
He didn't feel like making a trip to the police station.
The police officer's mouth twitched. Secret department? How could there be that many secret departments in the nation?
"Please show me some identity documents!"
"I didn't bring them!" Ren Baqian stated the truth.
Ren Baqian ignored him and called Yang Sen. He was relieved when Yang Sen picked up the phone because it would have been a big problem if Yang Sen didn't bring his phone along or if had no way to receive the call.
"I was stopped by the police for a road check, and there are some secret things in my car. Please get someone to come pick them up!" Ren Baqian said. Then, he told him the location.
After the phone call, Ren Baqian shrugged at the police officer, sat in his car, and waited for someone to come.
"Take the key out of the ignition!" the police officer ordered. He became more relaxed after Ren Baqian pulled out the car key.
The way Ren Baqian was behaving convinced the police officer that there was certainly something illegal in the car.
On the other hand, Ren Baqian had nothing to fear. Moreover, he did mention something about confidential matters during the phone call.
This made the police officer hesitate over whether he should force Ren Baqian to get out of his car. Anyway, he didn't have any form of identification, and it was hard to believe he was from some secret department.
Coincidentally, another police officer with a dog happened to come by at this time, and the dog immediately rushed to the trunk and started barking.
The police officer who had just arrived instantly said, "Get him out of the car and open up the trunk to check!"
This dog was specially trained to detect drugs, but was also very sensitive to the smell of blood.
As a result, he was immediately alerted when he saw the reaction from the dog.
The police officer who was there first went forward to explain something. Then, the two of them looked at Ren Baqian while reporting the incident via walkie-talkie.
One of them nodded to the other after reporting on the walkie-talkie and said gruffly, "Mister, please get out of the car and open the trunk for inspection!"
Ren Baqian turned his head to look at the two policemen outside his car and heaved a sigh.
"I have already mentioned that someone will be here soon. Do you want him to call your superior first?" Ren Baqian asked.
"Please get out of the car!" One of the policemen reached for his waist with his hands.
Ren Baqian was helpless and really didn't want to cause any trouble.
He opened the door to get out of the car, took out his phone, leaned on the car, and asked, "Is there any harm in waiting for a few more minutes before investigating? I am not able to run away. I mentioned that the trunk contains some confidential things, and I am waiting here without making it difficult for you. Isn't it better for you not to invite trouble? Anyway, you will understand when someone comes here."
Hearing his words, they reported over the walkie-talkie again and kept quiet this time. One of them watched Ren Baqian from the side while the other took the dog to continue the inspection.
"What case are you on?" Ren Baqian curiously asked.
"It's confidential!" the police officer countered.
"What type of skin-care products do you use? You are out in the open every day, yet you are not tan at all! Please recommend me!" Ren Baqian asked again. Recently, he felt that he became tan very fast because the sun in Dayao was intense. He didn't have the natural anti-sun protection of the aboriginals, and the empress almost couldn't recognize him after he was out in the wilderness for a few days.
That police officer listened to these words without saying anything. This person could actually find something like that to say?
"We are on duty. Be serious!"
"You are among friends. Why are you so serious? Take it easy, it's difficult to work in any department!" Ren Baqian laughed.
Yang Sen would spit out blood if he heard these words.
It was difficult for others, but never for him.
Ren Baqian was bored. His main concern was Dayao, but he didn't have much to say to those barbarians because they didn't understand him. It wasn't much different from casting pearls to swine.
It was rare for him to have leisure time, to banter with people, and to enjoy some tranquil time on Earth.
He chattered for a long time before that police officer was compelled to ask, "Are you really from a secret department?"
He hadn't met anyone from any secret department who was so talkative. Weren't these people supposed to watch their tongues? This guy was simply not discreet at all.
"I guarantee you! Do you know the Messier 87 department? I come from there and specialize in researching aliens!" Ren Baqian continued bragging.
"I not only know of the Messier 87, I also know who Ultraman Tiga is!" the police officer blurted.
[1.Ultraman Tiga is a Japanese tokusatsu TV show and is the 12th show in the Ultra Series.] "You are my comrade!"
Ren Baqian waited for a long time before the person sent by Yang Sen finally appeared. Yang Sen had already called the police station beforehand, which relayed the news to that police officer who was on duty. Ren Baqian had a good time chatting with these two and was reluctant to leave since he had not had a good chat with someone in a very long time.
When he arrived at the building where the Messier 87 department was located, he was met by Yang Sen, who was waiting with some followers in the parking lot.
"What did Mr Ren bring?" everyone asked eagerly.
"Two corpses, and both are at the apex of the Earth Wheel level," Ren Baqian replied. There were many corpses available earlier that included Spirit Wheel experts like Lu Qi. It was said that his head was hung up in the city until it became smelly.
However, Yang Sen and company were excited.
To them, these two corpses were considered as being no less valuable than two Ultraman Tigas from the Messier 78 department.
Those in the laboratory only knew about top level Earth Wheel experts from the brief descriptions in the martial arts manuals given to them by Ren Baqian. Everyone knew that Earth Wheel experts were powerful and far beyond human limits, but they didn't know how powerful they really were.
There were many things to uncover from the two corpses, and it represented the evolution of human beings in the future.
The value simply couldn't be measured in terms of money
No one expected Ren Baqian to bring back such an important thing since he had only brought back some small items before.
However, after Ren Baqian opened the bag inside the trunk, everyone felt that the two corpses were miserable looking. They were not intact, were broken into two portions, and were missing some body parts like hands and chunks of flesh. More importantly, the wounds were stuffed with rags, and after taking out the rags, it was discovered that the internal organs were stained with sediment.
That such precious things were treated this way by Ren Baqian caused everyone grief and heartache. It was like seeing their own children being abused.
Following this, the researchers ignored Ren Baqian as they moved the corpses away. Ren Baqian was left alone with Yang Sen.
"Mr. Ren, what is the level of the Earth Wheel in that world?" Yang Sen couldn't help asking. Although he didn't know what level the Earth Wheel meant was in that world, he gathered from the martial arts manuals supplied by Ren Baqian that it was certainly not that high.
After all, he didn't believe that Ren Baqian would give them the best cultivation methods so easily.
At present, their biggest hope wasn't to get better cultivation methods though Ren Baqian, but to develop methods more suited for human cultivation through the study and research of the few methods that had been provided.
Although this wasn't a short-term project, with many elites and supercomputers doing the research, it should be more effective than what the other world could achieve.
With the technology available on Earth, everyone was very confident
In addition, based on their research and development, the resulting methods would indeed be more suitable for the people on Earth.
Yet, he still wanted to know what the Earth Wheel level was in the other world because the results from the supercomputers showed that the power of an Earth Wheel expert far exceeded that of human.
An answer from Ren Baqian could also help him to understand the other world better.
"About at the level of the elite forces." Ren Baqian continued after some contemplation, "Probably about the level of the special forces."
Ren Baqian intentionally concealed some details. In Dayao, it really was the level of the elite troops. As for the court officials, they were all at the Spirit Wheel level.
However, in Great Xia, the Earth Wheel practitioners were also considered as minor experts.
"It's the level of the elite troops?" Yang Sen was surprised. Even though he felt that the Earth Wheel experts weren't at a high level, he didn't expect them to be at the level of elite guards.
An army formed with soldiers who were all at the Earth Wheel level was indeed a terrible thing for the people on Earth to know because the researchers only could understand the basics of the Earth Wheel at the moment.
"It's about there!" Ren Baqian nodded his head.
"His words sounded like they were real!" someone concluded after looking at his expression from a monitor.
This was Ren Baqian's plan to let the people on Earth overestimate the other world's strength. Overestimation was better than underestimation. It was better to let people fear you than to let them look down on you. This would make it less troublesome for him in the future.
