The Favored Son Of Heaven Chapter 319
“Too light.” Qin Fen shook his head and sighed again and again. He could even use Thunderstorm, which weighed one-ton, with just one hand. And this heavy-lead suit only weighed five hundred kilograms. It was no different than fooling a child.
The receptionist peeked a glance at the heavy-lead suit beside her. That was but a five hundred kg suit! She tentatively asked again, “Sir, are you sure?”
“Do you have anything heavier? Do you have it or not?”
Qin Fen did not hide the disappointment on his face.* It seems we can’t believe everything that’s advertised! They said they have all the facilities available. It’s too much exaggerated!*
As a receptionist, she acutely noticed the dissatisfaction written on Qin Fen’s face. This time the dissatisfaction clearly meant that he wanted to leave, which was tantamount to losing a big customer.
“Yes, yes, we have it. Sir, please wait a minute.” Picking up the walkie-talkie from her waist, the receptionist bolted out of the room and hastily reported, “Manager, I’ve received a lieutenant colonel who appears to be less than twenty years old…”
“What? Less than twenty years old? Are you sure?”
Listening to the surprised reply of the manager, the receptionist’s heart, which had been shocked by Qin Fen, finally felt balanced. This time, she wasn’t the one who was stunned by that young monster.
“He should be,” the receptionist answered the manager in an earnest manner. “Manager, I know my duties. I have served with the best of my abilities. But… but he has a strange request. He wanted heavy-lead suits. Of course, I took him to the storage but he said that these suits are too light. That’s right! He said that they were too light while standing in front of the five hundred kg heavy-lead suits.”
The walkie-talkie sunk into silence. As the manager of an upscale fitness club, he had seen all kinds of things in his life. However, he had never encountered things like this before.
Although a five hundred heavy-lead suit wasn’t the heaviest in the market, very few people needed heavy-lead suits of this level, apart from the people who practiced paleo martial arts like Sumeru Power, Dragon Elephant Prajna Art, Strength of Nine Oxes and Two Tigers, or Vigorous Divine Art neo martial arts.
Is that young scion practicing Sumeru Power, Dragon Elephant Prajna Art, Strength of Nine Oxes and Two Tigers, or Vigorous Divine Art? Although these secret arts can’t necessarily be bought with money, it does not mean that there aren’t young scions who like practicing these!
The manager rubbed his forehead. Has the trend really changed now? Aren’t all young scions fond of practicing Yijin Sutra, Eight Wild and Six Fit Supremacy Art, Arhat Devil Suppressing Art, Northern Abyss Divine Art, and neo martial arts like Solar Art, Yin and Yang Magnetic Art, Pluto Vortex Art and so on?
“Wait a minute, I will serve this man myself! Don’t worry, if I am successful in landing him, the commission and the credit is all yours.”
Having dropped these words, the manager quickly left his comfortable office. Rhythmic taps of his speedy footsteps resounded throughout the quite hallway.
A less than twenty years old lieutenant colonel!? The manager’s eyes flickered with suspicion. Is he the son of His Excellency, the President? A less than twenty years old lieutenant colonel! Maybe he is the grandson of Martial God Song!? No! Martial God Song doesn’t have a grandson! Hmm, maybe he is the grandson-in-law of Martial God Song?
A sarcastic look appeared on the manager’s face. As if! The Martial God Song’s granddaughter isn’t married.
Bored, Qin Fen inspected the facilities in the room. A five hundred kilogram heavy-lead suit is somewhat disappointing, I hope they won’t continue to disappoint me.
Tap… tap… tap…
Qin Fen raised his eyebrow as he looked at the manager who just walked in; a man in his early thirties and wearing a well-ironed suit. It coupled with his well-combed hair, giving the feeling of an elite businessman. Hung on his chest was a tag with “Manager” written on it.
“Hello, sir, I am the manager here, surnamed Hua. How can I help you?”
Manager Hua made a series of succinct opening remarks as he peeked a glance at the accouterments on Qin Fen’s shoulders and collar. The accouterments are indeed of lieutenant colonel, and not some fakes bought off the streets. Furthermore, there is a thick air of a soldier that cannot be faked.
“I need heavy-lead suits.” Qin Fen looked at the suits hanging on the rack beside him and shook his head again. “These are too light.”
The receptionist peeked a glance at the manager. Her bright eyes seemed to be saying, See! I was right, wasn’t I?
Manager Hua became silence for a moment. At first, he believed some fake lieutenant colonel had come to make trouble; he didn’t expect that such young lieutenant colonel had actually come.
“Sir, you need a multi-layer heavy-lead suit.” Manager Hua maintained a smile. “Although we don’t have it at the moment, we can immediately present to you the heavy-lead suit you need in the shortest time. Please believe us, we are the best fitness club in Shengjing. Our service is the best and our ability is also the strongest.”
“A thousand seven hundred and fifty kg suit plus wristbands and ankle weights, weighing a total of two thousand kg.” Qin Fen lightly nodded. “These should be about right.”
A total of two thousand kg!? The receptionist and the manager clucked their tongues. This man who looks so robust is actually hiding such terrifying strength? Is he really human? He is no different than a small-scale mobile armor!?
Looking at their surprised look, Qin Fen decided to not tell them that he was planning to enter the gravity chamber wearing these.
“I understand! Please, wait a minute.”
Manager Hua proved himself to be a young elite businessman. He hastily called the nearby manufacturers. This type of heavy-lead suit was almost the heaviest suit on the market today. Generally, it was made to show their strength to the consumers. Even though it was a super-heavy lead suit, it could also be made very light and thin.
“Sir, can you please wait fifteen minutes?” Manager Hua smiled to Qin Fen, secretly wondering what the origin of this kid was. We should flatter such a young lieutenant colonel. He might become an important figure in the army someday. In the future, if we expand our business into other sectors, we can also supply military auxiliary equipment. That’s some easy money.
Regardless of how much society had advanced in science and technology, having contacts was still at the forefront of everything; it had not changed. Everyone knew that military contracts were very lucrative. However, they were not something that everyone could get.
Connections, if anyone wanted to have military contracts, having connections was of paramount importance. Real powerful connections!
A less than twenty years old lieutenant colonel!? Manager Hua believed that as long as someone had a brain, he would know that this man had a promising future in the army for sure! If he served him well, their relationship was as good as tied. In the future, as long as he loosened his fingers even a little bit, the breadcrumbs slipping through them alone would be quite lucrative.
Manger Hua chit-chatted with Qin Fen. He was always trying to get something out of Qin Fen in a roundabout manner, but he discovered that, although Qin Fen seemed to be answering randomly, he replies were always watertight.
He is indeed a scion of a big family! Manager Hua was even more convinced of his conjecture. If Qin Fen had not been fostered by some big family, his replies would not so discreet to the point that it would keep the listener hanging as to from which family he belonged to and where his house was.
It seems we aren’t close enough. Maybe I will come to know in the future.’ Manager Hua comforted himself
Shortly after, an attendant entered the room, pushing a small mag-drive trolley.
Manager Hua quickly stepped forward and opened the case on the trolley as a set of very comfortable innerwear for the heavy-lead suit appeared before everyone’s eyes.
Don’t look down on these little garments, they were worth tens of millions! They were not only very heavy but because of their high density and special material, their protective performance was even higher than the rumored dragon scale body armor.
However, regardless of how high their protective performance was, their weight was simply too terrifying! A defensive garment of the same weight made from different material had a much better effect than this kind of heavy-weight garments.
“Mister Qin, this is your suit.”
Manager Hua stood beside the box, inside which was the suit weighing one thousand seven hundred and fifty kg. He couldn’t possibly lift it up.
Qin Fen rushed to the box in two steps, momentarily surprised. “Oh? Autumn clothes and autumn pants!?”
Manager Hua dragged the two attendants out of the room. Young Master must not have the habit of exhibiting his bare body in front of others.
Qin Fen was not polite either. Running the Dragon Elephant Prajna Art, he picked up the suit weighing over one thousand five hundred kg and wore it. After he put on the wristguards and ankle weights, he felt the heavy pressure.
“Two thousand kg…” Qin Fen shrugged his shoulders. “Sure enough, this is weighty.”
As Qin Fen took a step, he swiftly looked down upon hearing the sound of tiles cracking underneath his feet. The club went too far in its luxurious decorations. In the pursuit of luxury, they had neglected the firmness of the tiles. It seemed that these tiles could only bear one thousand five hundred kg.
What should I do? Qin Fen shook his head. If he went all the way, would I not turn into a vandal? In the end, would I not be miserable if the military saw that horrifying bill and didn’t pay?
Qin Fen adjusted the state of his body. Although he could not do anything about the weight, he could try to control it well. He could distribute the weight evenly the moment his feet touched the ground…
Just as he took another step, the tile underneath Qin Fen’s feet fissured again. However, the cracks were obviously much smaller than before.
It works! Qin Fen’s eyes lit up. Carefully, he took another step. Hiss…
A creak came from the floor, but there weren’t any apparent signs of cracking.
Qin Fen heaved a long, deep breath in relief.* Fortunately, I have been paying great attention to control these days. Otherwise, I would have really disgraced myself!*
One step, two steps, three steps…
The creaks coming from the floor grew smaller and smaller, and very soon, disappeared into nothing. A smile finally appeared on Qin Fen’s face. Currently, I still have to pay a great deal of attention to this control. If I could wear it for a long time, I might be able to turn this control into a daily part of my life…
Qin Fen shook his head, again. This suit is a work of art, I’m afraid its price is equally terrifying. It’s better to not have any ideas about buying this kind of suit.
Having walked out of the room, Qin Fen looked at the three people waiting outside the room and asked, “Excuse me, where is the gravity chamber?”
Gravity chamber! The three people outside the room simultaneously felt the entire world revolve. He wants to go to the gravity chamber wearing a suit weighing two thousand kg? Does his self-abuse have a limit? Where did this monster come from? Is he a robot? Robot? I heard that the real robots of the highest level act just like a human!
