The Favored Son Of Heaven Chapter 318
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
In a bright and spacious room with a large desk…
Du Yu, having pushed the door open gently, sat quietly on the long sofa in the room.
After a moment, Du Hen finally broke the silence. “What do you want to know?”
“Why did you take a stand?” There was an incomprehensible look on Du Yu’s face. “You have taught me not to express my position in advance at any time. And the Qilin is even involved in this matter this time! Then, why did you…”
“Why?” Du Hen, leaning his head against the back of his chair, said with his eyes closed slightly, “The East Asia Military Region is getting old. There are problems in many places. It’s time to fix it. And since Qin Fen has become this opportunity, I can’t let it go.”
To Du Yu’s dismay, he suddenly discovered signs of aging on Du Hen’s face under the faint sunlight coming through the window, shining on Du Hen’s face.
Unexpectedly, Snake King, the pillar of the East Asia Military Region, who was always calm and filled with infinite vitality, was showing signs of aging!
Du Yu rubbed his eyes hard, doubting that what he saw. Nonetheless, he discovered that his father was indeed looking a bit old.
Du Hen heaved a sigh with inexplicable exhaustion. “Xiaoyu, you can’t control the East Asia Military Region.”
Du Yu nodded without speaking. His father had never been wrong, and the same was true this time as well.
“Originally, there was Zhanpeng… but now…” Du Hen opened his eyes, which normally instilled fear, and looked at the sky. He was looking straight at the sky, unaffected by the sunlight. “God knows where Zhanpeng is… we only have one life, we don’t know what the future has in store for us. Nevertheless, the East Asia Military Region would always need a helmsman…”
“Father… you want to… but he is too young… also…”
“Young!?” Du Hen looked at Du Yu with a faint smile. “How old do you think I was when I became the general? Insufficient military merits can be amassed, a weak can be trained, but if someone lacks the courage, then what? As a soldier, we need to be cold-hearted, but we absolutely can’t be cruel…”
Du Yu nodded quietly. Every generation of the federation had a few gifted people who could sweep through their peers easily. But only a few dared to fight against the will of Song Wendong.
“That kid’s character is also good.” Du Hen laughed and said, “Besides, I will not be getting old and useless any sooner!”
Du Yu nodded again, still looking skeptically at his father, who had closed his eyes at the sun again. His words might have sounded reasonable, but there seemed to be something hidden between them. He had not explained completely.
Is it because the military intelligence department wasn’t able to find Qin Fen’s backing?’ Du Yu’s furrow grew deeper. Father even dared to go against Song Wendong because he is afraid of Qin Fen’s backer who he is unable to find for the time being? No! Father doesn’t have any fear, he is just having an indescribable feeling.
Du Yu heaved a sigh. Since father doesn’t want to say anything, I shouldn’t continue to pester him. He got up and walked to the window sill and looked outside, stretching his body. Suddenly, his eyes lit up. Qin Fen came to look for Zhao Huzi? It seems this young man is very clever; he immediately came to inform his superior after doing that troublesome thing.
Looking for the right person! Du Yu slightly nodded in appreciation. The most terrifying things in the world are the people who don’t have eyes. It would be a pity to look for the wrong person. It’s good that he knows who to look for at his young age! Smart!
“Well, kid, it’s like this.” Zhao Huzi slapped Qin Fen’s back with a heavy hand, giving Qin Fen an urge to vomit. “Snake King said that you don’t need to worry about walking on the streets and encountering assassinations like today’s morning.”
Qin Fen didn’t say a word and nodded. The army indeed is a powerful organization. Originally, I thought that this murder would be concealed from everybody. I didn’t expect that immediately after I killed him, everyone could accurately get to the roots of the matter just by analyzing the reports.
Having walked out of the military base, Qin Fen helplessly looked at the two young martial artists before him.
There was no need to say anything. Judging by the look on their faces, it was quite evident that these two were here to challenge him.
Qin Fen didn’t even bat an eye. He quickly ran the Dragon Elephant Prajna Art as the true energy of eight-star level erupted from his body. His military uniform bloated for a moment from the impact of this eruption before deflating ever so quickly thereafter.
The overflowing battle intent of the two young men disappeared like a puff of smoke in the blink of an eye upon perceiving the sudden eruption of eight-star level martial strength. Dumfounded, the two stood gawking at each other. How can we fight this level of strength?
The two sentry guards stared at Qin Fen; their eyes filled with surprise. So the rumors were true? The champion of recruit tournament’s martial arts tournament had indeed reached the eight-star level!
Qin Fen called a taxi and got into it. “Pegasus Fitness Club, please.”
Sitting at the back of the taxi, Qin Fen looked at the GPS in his hand and laughed wryly. I wonder if I will have the chance to use this thing that cost me so much money in the future. It looks somewhat wasteful.
With time and the development of society, fitness clubs had already become an essential part of ordinary families. However, it was still a luxury for Qin Fen.
Pegasus Fitness Club was not a place where an ordinary citizen would spend their money on. It was the best fitness club in Shengjing. It had the most comprehensive sports equipment.
Qin Fen, standing in front of this luxurious fitness club, took a long, deep breath before marching into it with large strides. Since the military paid for everything, he had no reason not to visit this super-class fitness club and experience the feeling of spending public funds.
“Hello, would you like to apply for an annual card or quarterly card…”
Noticing Qin Fen’s young age and the rank of lieutenant colonel on his shoulders, the eyes of the receptionist at the front desk shone immediately. This kid is surely a scion of some aristocratic family! Otherwise, how is it possible for a young man to be a lieutenant colonel at his age?
Generally, a soldier should be a recruit or a cadet at a military academy at his age! How is it possible he’s running around with the rank of lieutenant colonel?
“Annual card?” Qin Fen waved his hand. “I won’t come here often, how much does it cost for trying it out once?”
Trying it out once!? The receptionist at the front desk was stupefied. She slowly nodded her acknowledgment with her mouth agape. It seems that this young man came here to look at the environment.
“Our one-time access card…” the receptionist quickly operated the computer. People rarely came here for one-time access. She truly didn’t know how much it cost for one-time access.
Gold card! The receptionist’s eyes shone even more brightly upon looking at the credit card handed out by Qin Fen. In her opinion, Qin Fen’s identity was indeed unusual. He handed the gold card like he was giving an ordinary card. He didn’t have the slightest bit of a nouveau rich’s air.
“Sir, let me introduce you to our facilities…” The receptionist was very enthusiastic. She was afraid that she would miss this gold master. “Our swimming pool is the best in Shengjing…”
Qin Fen raised his head and looked at the map on the screen, searching for the heavy-lead suit and gravity chamber. As for the swimming pool, he simply disregarded it. Even if it was public funds, he could not waste it. They should always be used on things that were truly useful.
“If you are tired, we have the best masseur…”
Qin Fen waved his hand and interrupted the receptionist before asking curiously, “Where are your heavy-lead suits? Why don’t I see them? And what about the gravity chamber? The best fitness club doesn’t have a gravity chamber?”
The front desk receptionist stared at Qin Fen, her mouth agape. Her beautiful bright eyes sized Qin Fen up from top to bottom. What? Did the young scions of big families change their habits and hobbies nowadays? Is self-abuse popular nowadays? We do have heavy-lead suits, but they have never been used before. They might already be laden with dust!
“So, you don’t have it?” Qin Fen looked a bit disappointed. The receptionist acutely noticed the customer’s disappointment and hastily answered, “Have it, we have it, I will take you there…”
Qin Fen did not refuse. According to the internet, the service provided here was the best one-on-one service. Declining would have meant a dissatisfaction with the attendants.
The heavy-lead suits were stored next to the gravity chamber. When the receptionist opened the door with her magnetic card, she discovered that the environment was very good here. It was a sterile room. Speckless, not a single dust particle could be found here which could dissatisfy a customer.
Stepping into the room, Qin Fen looked at the suits on the rack. Just the storage room had an area of over a thousand square meters. It was really extravagant.
The heavy-lead suits closest to the entrance were the lightest. The training suit with wrist and ankle weights only weighed ten kilograms. The shoes only weighed five kilograms.
Is this it? A little dissatisfied, Qin Fen shook his head and went straight to the farthest end of the room.
The receptionist, who was following closely behind Qin Fen, became more surprised the deeper she went in. At first, she believed that this young master was only here to try out a bit, but even after having seen the suits weighing ten to twenty kilograms, Qin Fen didn’t seem to have any intention of stopping. The suits here already weigh a hundred and fifty kg! Oh my God, what does he want to do?
Two hundred, two twenty-five.. two-fifty… three hundred…
Looking around at the weight of the suits, the receptionist felt a bit uncomfortable, as if she was the one wearing these suits on the rack.
Three twenty-five, three fifty…
The receptionist began to suspect that this young master wasn’t here to try these heavy-lead suits, but rather was just here to look; nothing more, nothing less. She believed that Qin Fen just wanted to know if the things here were complete.
That’s right! It must be like this! Looking at the four hundred kg heavy-lead suit, the receptionist was more and more convinced. If the fitness club had a wide variety of heavy-lead suits then there was no need to check other things out.
Finally, Qin Fen halted his footsteps. They had already arrived at the end of the room. Nevertheless, he still hadn’t picked up any heavy-lead suit. The receptionist smiled and looked at Qin Fen, who had just turned around. She was waiting for Qin Fen’s praises for the equipment as well as a request for an annual membership card.
“Is…” Qin Fen furrowed his brow in dissatisfaction. “Is that all of it? Isn’t there anything heavier?”
The receptionist suspected that there was something wrong with her ears. Heavier? Young Master! These already weigh five hundred kg! What do you want to do? Do you think you are a hero of a fantasy novel, who has an endless power?
