1281 The Program is GenderlessThe third week into Project 071’s temporary suspension and the first weekend since the departure of SS Origin, the good news from the apocalypse made Jiang Chen stop doing the work that was on his hand.Lin Lin told him through the interdimensional communication device that X71291’s body had been completed.
When Jiang Chen heard the news, he immediately took the space elevator back to the surface, took a helicopter, flew to Coconut Island, where he used as a material transfer station, and then hurried to the apocalypse.
Lin Lin’s Institute. In the lab.
When Jiang Chen pushed open the door and entered the room, Lin Lin stood beside the operating table and poked at the tablet in her hand. On the operating table in front of her, there was a petite girl. When Jiang Chen looked over, the girl was watching him too.
Although it was the first time Jiang Chen saw it in this form, from her eyes, he saw some familiar emotions. Although she certainly looked beautiful, for some odd reasons, a strange feeling lingered in his mind.
“We have met again…” The girl lying on the operating table nodded as she watched Jiang Chen walk towards her, “Mr. Jiang Chen.”
“From your tone, I can sense your surprise.” X71291 said without much fluctuations in her tone.
Jiang Chen pulled Lin Lin aside, leaned closer to her ear, and whispered.
“Why did you make it… like this?”
“How else would I make it? Do you want me to make one… one of that?” Lin Lin took a step back and flushed as she gave Jiang Chen a vicious stare.
Maybe it was because the topic was too embarrassing, or maybe it was the hot air blowing in her ear, Lin Lin felt her cheeks burn.
“I’m not talking about gender.” Jiang Chen showed a helpless smile.
It was not about gender. After all, when Jiang Chen originally saw X71291, it appeared as a virtual character “Tao Tingting” in front of him. It just that this petite appearance felt strange to him.
“Don’t worry, the program is genderless.” The girl’s mouth formed a stiff arc and then said in an incongruous tone, “I don’t need that troublesome thing at all, just give me a body that can integrate into human society.”
Looking at the quiet Jiang Chen, the girl tilted her head.
Jiang Chen shook his head and stared blankly at X71291 for a moment.
“Nothing, I’m just curious … Didn’t Lin Lin install an emoticon system for you?”
“Oh, that. I turned it off to save power.” The girl said expressionlessly and then looked at Lin Lin who had been tinkering with the tablet. “Did you figure it out yet? If you don’t know something, you can ask me. ”
“It’s almost done.” Lin Lin looked at the tablet in her hand reluctantly, and her fingers quickly tapped on the screen.
Jiang Chen looked at Lin Lin with questions in his eyes
“She used my lab to add some parts to herself,” Lin Lin’s cheeks turned a little red and her eyes drifted to the side as she embarrassedly scratched her head. Then she muttered quietly, “but I can’t find where…”
“Parts?” Jiang Chen repeated in confusion.
“Oh, you’re looking for that,” the girl sighed. “You could have just told me.”
Lin Lin looked to the side without talking.
Obviously, she felt quite frustrated and disappointed that she lost to X71291 in her field of expertise.
“According to the original agreement, I will be responsible for protecting your safety. In order to be able to cope with various dangers, I have installed some convenient weapons on this body. This is very troublesome to explain. It is better to find a place where I can directly show you.”
If it is a weapon, there is no more intuitive explanation than “showing them”.
Following Lin Lin, Jiang Chen and X71291 came to the ground floor; a shooting range around hundreds of square meters. This range was previously used to test the power of electromagnetic pulse cannons, the damage of Gauss rifles, and the anti-strike capability of some hadron materials.
“In the laboratory’s sample library, there are Death Claws, Mud Crabs, and the most common zombies. Basically, you can find any mutant species that are around Wanghai City… Where do you want to start?” Lin Lin asked the expressionless girl.
“Let’s start with the Death Claw.”
“Yeah.” Without another word to Lin Lin, the girl opened the security door and stepped into the isolation room.
Lin Lin tried to say something, but nothing came out. Instead, she just pressed on the touchpad a few times.
The floor of the isolation room formed a square opening around a few square meters in size. Soon, an iron cage with a Death Claw slowly rose and stopped in the center of the isolation room.
Stimulated by the light inside the isolation room, the sleeping Death Claw slowly awoke from its sleep and rushed to the side of the cage.
Its sharp fangs exuded disgusting saliva and its blade-like claws clasped tightly onto the steel bars of the iron cage. Its amber eyeballs rolled quickly under its dry eyelids and finally locked onto X71291. With a roar, the steel bar, which was as thick as a thumb, began to creak under the intensive force.
On the one hand, was a dangerous mutant nearly three meters tall, and on the other hand, was a girl who looked like a fragile porcelain doll. The vibe between the two sides formed a strong contrast.
“No need for weapons?” Jiang Chen asked the one question he was most concerned about as he stared at the petite figure.
Even if the body was damaged, it would not have any effect on X71291 in the quantum computer group, but he still clenched his fist for her in the room.
“No,” the girl just said indifferently and then turned to Lin Lin, “open the cage.”
Lin Lin spat out her tongue and pressed on the touchpad.
With a “click”, the lock fixed on the cage steel bar popped open, and the steel bar door directly in front of the Death Claw fell heavily on the ground.
At almost the same time, the Death Claw rushed out of the cage and roared towards the “prey” in front of it.
Its amber-colored pupils were filled with the thirst for blood.
The human that dares to imprison me will be shredded!
Against a charging Death Claw, the girl stood there motionlessly. Just when Jiang Chen thought that perhaps she was too frightened, he noticed that a pool of silver water was spreading outward from X71291’s foot.
Jiang Chen revealed a complex expression.
In the blink of an eye, the Death Claw was already in front of her.
Seeing that its claw was going to slash open the girl’s chest, a silver wall suddenly popped up from the ground and blocked the girl from the Death Claw.
Sparks flickered, and there was the crisp sound of colliding metal.
The hurt Death Claw jumped back two steps in pain, widened its amber eyes, and stared at the silver wall in its front.
The flat and smooth silver casing was like a solid mirror. It protected the girl like a shield.
Its foot rubbed on the ground as it stared at the prey in front. The Death Claw grinned menacingly and moved a few steps to the side. It looked at its prey without any movement before its legs exerted with full force and with a loud roar, it hurled at her again.
With a mocking grin, the girl raised her right hand. The silver wall re-transformed into a pool of silver water and centered on where she stood. Then, it converged along the floor in the direction of the Death Claw.
The roar of the Death Claw made all the glass inside the isolation room tremble.
With a Death Claw leaping towards her, the girl just smiled.
As if she was patting away dust from her sleeves, she waved her hand in the Death Claw’s direction.
Countless thick spikes burst out from the ground and blocked all possible escape routes of the Death Claw.
Too late to stop, the Death Claw was like a fly that threw itself into the net and slammed in unpreparedly. It was stabbed by countless spikes and its charging posture was fixated in midair.
The claw stopped two inches in front of her.
The girl turned and looked at the stunned Lin Lin and Jiang Chen behind the tempered glass. She had a slight grin on her face.
From the astonished look of the two, she felt unprecedented joy …
