Chapter 388 - Ou Ming
[Book 3: The South]
Yue Zhong eyed Ou Ming and replied: "I'm Yue Zhong!"
Ou Ming directly pulled out a box and handed it to Yue Zhong with a look of indifference: "Since you're here! That idiot Linghu Xiangru must have been done in by you. This entire Long An County must be under your control already as well. I might as well rely on you! This is the product of my research: Ou Ming Evolving Liquid Ver 1. After taking it, it can help any Enhancer over Level 30 with a Type 1 Skill to evolve it into a Type 2 Skill. If a normal person lesser than Level 30 were to use this liquid, there's a chance of awakening a Level 3 Skill, and the possibility of permanently enhancing a random attribute by 10 points. This liquid can only be used by a person once, subsequent dosages will have no effect. There are 3 vials over here, treat it as my pledge of allegiance!"
Yue Zhong opened up the box and took a look, in it, there were 3 vials that were exactly the same as the vials he got from Linghu Xiangru.
He asked: "This liquid is your research?"
Ou Ming had a look of self-satisfaction: "Of course!!"
Yue Zhong looked at him and directly said: "I want the formula for this liquid!"
Compared to one or 2 vials of the liquid, Yue Zhong wanted to the formula and process. With it, he could enhance every expert under him in the future.
Ou Ming did not seem to hesitate and directly handed a stack of documents to Yue Zhong: "Not a problem! This is the formula for Ou Ming Ver 1!"
Yue Zhong opened up the documents and took a careful read, and discovered the intricate process of produing this 'Ou Ming Ver 1'. Its main ingredients were the blood essence of a Type 3 Mutant Beast, as well as the brain cells of the Type 3 Mutant Beast, combined with the sap of a Mutant Plant known as the Ghost Night Vine, and the Blood Orchid, another Mutant Plant. Lastly, there were some other common materials needed to be added.
On that document, the steps and important details to pay attention to were all listed extremely clearly. With this documents, as well as the necessary ingredients, Yue Zhong could begin a large-scale manufacturing of this 'Ou Ming Ver 1'.
Yue Zhong asked: "The Ghost Night Vine and Blood Orchid, you have them here?
Ou Ming pointed to a corner of the research lab: "That area, from the left to the right, are the Ghost Night Vines and Blood Orchids."
At the corner, there was a small tree being wrapped by a number of black vines, below it, there were a few zombie corpses. Those pitch-black vines were precisely the Ghost Night Vines. To the right, there were a few blood-red flowers the size of huge sunflowers blooming atop the corpses of zombies. These were the Blood Orchids.
The 3 important components necessary for the production of the 'Ou Ming Ver 1', with the exception of the corpse of a Type 3 Mutant Beast, were all gathered here.
Yue Zhong saw how cooperative Ou Ming was, and rejoiced silently in his heart, as he smiled and promised: "Very good! Whatever your requests, as long as they're not too excessive, I will do my best to fulfill them!"
Ou Ming contemplated silently for a moment, before his eyes blazed with a passion: "I don't have any special request! I like to research these zombies, Mutant Beasts and Mutant Plants. Let me stay here and continue my research! Please pass any high-level zombies, any Mutant Beasts and Mutant Plants for me to research. The results of my research will be passed to you, and you can use it any way you want. However, there is a condition, that is whenever you use the fruition of my research, you have to use my name!! With regards to this 'Ou Ming Evolving Liquid Ver 1', when you pass them to others, you have to use the name. I want my name to resound across the entire world!! Surpassing even Einstein and Newton! I want to become the first and foremost scientist in the world!"
Yue Zhong looked at the fervent Ou Ming and expressed his agreement: "No problem!!"
The naming of such products of science were extremely important to these scientists whose passion laid in research. To Yue Zhong however, it could be called anything. He didn't care what it was called, as long as the results of the research were useful.
Ou Ming pointed to the rest of the research team and said indifferently: "Oh yes! This research facility needs constant power! We don't lack any beverages or food. The families of these researchers are here, so please look after them kindly. If they have any requests with regards to their conditions, please help to address them."
By partaking in the research in this facility, there would definitely be a restriction of freedom. Ou Ming was also extremely thorough, and did not request to leave his facility, and instead, proposed for Yue Zhong to look after the rest of the researchers.
Yue Zhong looked at Ou Ming appreciatively, and smiled: "Not an issue! Ou Ming, do you want a few beautiful assistants?"
Ou Ming replied apathetically: "No need!! I'm uninterested in 3D women! If you discover any dating games you can send them over! I'm only interested in 2D girls."
Yue Zhong became speechless. He had no idea that such a passionate scientist was only interested in 'gal games'.
"Alright! If there's nothing else, please leave. Of course, if you want to stay behind to observe, just keep silent. I want to start work!" Ou Ming had no airs of a subordinate and shifted his focus towards the microscope, as though the Mutant Beast meat was more interesting than a beautiful lady.
Yue Zhong asked one final question: "Is the nuclei of the Type 3 Mutant Beast of Linghu Xiangru still in your hands?"
Ou Ming immediately opened up a box beside him, and retrieved a blood red nuclei, throwing it to Yue Zhong without any care: "Are you talking about this? If you didn't say, I almost forgot! This nuclei cannot be digested by us humans, the previous person who ingested this just directly passed it out through his shit. At the same time, it is incompatible with other research materials, even acid cannot corrode it. Here!"
Yue Zhong directly kept the Type 3 Mutant Beast nuclei into his ring, as it was extremely helpful to the advancing of Mutant Beasts. If he could use it to raise Lightning into a Type 3 Beast, then he could gain another trump card!
Lightning was already so terrifying as a Type 2 Mutant Beast, if he could evolve it into a Type 3 Mutant Beast, then there would be no equal to it in the near future.
Yue Zhong pulled out a glass vial filled with the Snake Birth Fruit Juice and gave it to Ou Ming: "This is a fluid that can allow a person to become an Evolver!"
When Ou Ming heard that, he immediately took it and smelled the liquid, before sticking out his tongue to taste a little, and his eyes became bright with a strange glint. He almost lost his composure as he pulled Yue Zhong's clothes and asked loudly: "Is there more? Please give me more!! This is not enough for research!!"
A juice that allowed someone to become and Evolver, it was an incredible treasure. Ou Ming had been here for such a long time, and had conducted research on over 150 types of Mutant Plants, but it was the first time that he heard or saw an extract of a Mutant Plant that can help someone to Evolve.
Evolvers were the chosen of this apocalyptic world, they had much more potential than normal Enhancers. They were faster than other normal people in gaining benefits from various sources.
Beside Yue Zhong, the naturally awakened Evolvers like Yao Yao and Zhuo Yatong had incredible learning speeds, compared to others, they were extremely fast at picking up skills.
When Yue Zhong had become an Evolver, his learning ability had increased as well, and while he could not compare to those naturally awakened Evolvers, he was still vastly ahead of other ordinary Enhancers.
Even Ou Ming who was usually calm and indifferent, upon learning of this miraculous item, had lost his composure. This was after all something that could help make Evolvers, if he could derive the formula from this liquid, he could immediately become the top researcher in the history of mankind! The moment he thought of this, Ou Ming's blood began to boil with anticipation.
Yue Zhong pulled out the green Snake Birth Fruit Juices out, and handed them to Ou Ming: "I'm left with this!! However, these are just byproducts, they're not enough to become Evolver. They can only strengthen the body's constitution."
These green coloured Snake Birth Fruit juices had no way of changing a person into an Evolver, but if a normal person was to administer it, one could gain 5-6 points in a given attribute. However, it had no effect on an Evolver like Yue Zhong.
"That's great!! That's great!!" Ou Ming grabbed those vials and ran excitedly to the research bench, and began to run tests. He had completely forgotten about Yue Zhong who had passed him the juices.
Yue Zhong took a look at Ou Ming running about excitedly, as well as the rest of the research team engrossed in their work, and nobody gave a single hoot about him. He observed quietly for awhile, before leaving the lab.
Yue Zhong gave an order to Zhen Yeyang: "Zhen Yeyang, go inform Zheng Minghe to bring 15 experts and begin protection of this facility. From now on, this villa is out of bounds to anybody, without my instructions, no one is to barge in, any offenders will be executed!"
Ou Ming's research lab was extremely important to Yue Zhong. Be it the possibility of evolving a skill into its Type 2, or the current ongoing research into the serum that turns someone into an Evolver. To any power, this was an important trump card. Yue Zhong would definitely not let anyone get their hands on the research!
"Yes!" Zhen Yeyang's heart shuddered, as he swiftly replied.
Yue Zhong turned around, and left the research lab.
Since the control of Heaven Sect over Long An County had been consolidated, the entire area had become calm.
