Although Jiang Liushi was not afraid of Chu Chongshan, he still stayed vigilant. In the first district of Shenhai Island, they would be safe, but once they left that area, they were fraught with grim possibilities. After all, Chu Chongshan was not prepared to give up that easily. If Chu Chongshan could use heavy weapons, such as a Type 99 main battle tank, it would even threaten Jiang Liushi. As a result, the first thing Jiang Liushi wanted to do was to strengthen his minibus, from its tires, bulletproof windows to its armor. Jiang Liushi had all the materials needed, but he was short on mutant nuclei.

At present, Shenhai City seemed to be surrounded by the tide of zombies. In fact, some mutant zombies were lurking in that terrible tide. Many survivors had given up to go hunting outside. Even Jiang Liushi felt that it was quite dangerous to wonder in the first district of Shenhai Island. He indeed needed to get mutant nuclei, the more, the better. However, where could he get so many mutant nuclei?

The military was strictly controlling the mutant nuclei because of the study of the crystallization of evolution. If he bought mutant nuclei from survivors’ squads, the price would be higher, and the number would be limited. Moreover, Jiang Liushi knew that his wealth didn’t amount to much at the moment. Of course, Jiang Liushi still had one level-1 mutant nucleus, but he kept as precautionary measures, in case any unexpected happened.

Jiang Liushi estimated that per his MCV's autonomy modification function, at least fifteen to twenty first-level mutant nucleus would be needed for all the upgrades. He’d need a terrifying amount of wealth to procure so many nuclei. All those calculations were for his minibus. The mining truck and the minibus shared the same power, but the mining truck’s defensive functions were weaker than the minibus. After all, the mining truck was just another of the MCV’s forms, meaning that it was taking its form from the deformation of the MCV, not the minibus.

However…once the minibus transformed to that mining truck, its steel parts would be increased to hundreds of dozen tons, and the special alloys which enhanced the defense would mix with the mining truck. Jiang Liushi had to pay a hefty price to strengthen the mining truck and equip it with level-1 special alloy.

[It’s a pity. We killed lots of mutant mice in Tongnan City. Although they were not the level-1 mutant beasts, they should at least have a mutant nucleus in their body…] Jiang Liushi thought.

"Let’s wait for the zombie tide to weaken, and we’ll go hunting outside…" Jiang Liushi said.

At that moment, a knocking sound came from the door.

"Ah?" Jiang Liushi was stunned, looking toward Ran Xiyu, who was still calm. Jiang Liushi was really cautious because of Chu Chongshan.

"There’s only one person outside the door. He should be an ordinary person. I don’t feel any obvious malicious intent coming from him." Ran Xiyu said.

Jiang Liushi then nodded, and Sun Kun ran to open the door. When he opened the door, a man wearing a military uniform came. Jiang Liushi glanced at the man's epaulets, two bars, and a star. It turned out he was a Major. Of course, after doomsday, strength was more important. A military rank wouldn’t amount to anything if one hadn’t soldiers to follow their commands.

"You are…" Jiang Liushi had some doubts. He had never seen that person before, and he did not know about that person’s intentions.

The officer was of average height and dark-skinned, and he was smiling brightly. "I am a staff member of the Central Military Commission, and I am here to see Mr. Jiang."

"Oh?" Jiang Liushi was a little surprised, "You came to meet me? What for?" After all, Jiang Liushi was especially vigilant when it came to military officers.

Going to someone else’s turf was not wise.

The officer noticed Jiang Liushi’s hostility, so he smiled and said, "Mr. Jiang, you shouldn’t worry. I’m not one of Chu Chongshan’s subordinates, and my Commander-in-chief has nothing to do with him. If possible, could Mr. Jiang, please follow me to meet my Commander? He’s waiting for you to enjoy a good pot of Longjing tea

"Ah?" Jiang Liushi felt surprised.

After doomsday, even Cola could be regarded as a luxury, not to mention a pot of tea. Shenhai Island was close to the place Longjing tea was made. Before the doomsday, just a pound cost a dozen dollars, but a pound of the authentic Longjing tea reached tens of thousands of dollars.

Jiang Liushi was wondering what the Chief Commander wanted to discuss with him. He looked at Ran Xiyu, and Ran Xiyu nodded, which meant that the officer wasn’t lying. At least, it seemed it wasn’t one of Chu Chongshan’s traps.

Translator's Thoughts

Valvrave's corner; The MCV explaining part may be a little vague. Think about the minibus and the mining truck as the vessels for the MCV. The MCV connects each other and helps sharing some of the abilities, like 'Acceleration' and 'Colission'. {Gunner room, colission ram and Air cannon, are more like gimmicks that can only be equipped to the minibus as they're specially created for it.} The special alloy the MCV uses can expand, thus making it weaker while expanding. To help visualize think of a pizza dough. The more you work on it, the thinner it becomes in order to get a wider surface. The mining truck is considerably larger than the minibus, so even it they share the alloy, it can only give 50% protection. I hope I helped.
