Chapter 533: Ecology
In the morning, Ling Ping’an was woken up by the urge to pee.
He got up from the bed in a daze, walked to the bathroom, and pulled down his pants.
The sound of water splashing could be heard.
“What smells so good?” he smelled an unusual and unprecedented fragrance.
Therefore, he opened his eyes wide and woke up.
The urine splashed into the toilet bowl.
“My urine…” Ling Ping’an swallowed his saliva.
The color of his urine was not right!
It was black urine!
The urine splashed.
The toilet water was dyed with the color of ink.
It was as if someone poured a large plate of ink into the toilet bowl.
The black was spinning while his urine was constantly splashing.
Ling Ping’an was so scared that he peed even more!
He was dumbfounded!
He had only heard of blood in urine, but he had never heard of urinate ink?
In his panic, he quickly flushed after he finished peeing.
The clear water rushed into the thick ink and rolled into the sewer.
However, it was not completely flushed.
There was still a thick layer of black residue in the toilet bowl.
It looked a little like coal ash floating on the surface of the water.
Ling Ping’an hurriedly flushed it again.
It was finally flushed clean!
He patted his chest. “Did I eat something that wasn’t clean?” he thought.
Then, he became nervous again. “Do I have some kind of disease?”
“Should I go to the hospital for a check-up?”
As a qualified modern gentleman, Ling Ping’an insisted on treating his illness before it was too late.
Therefore, he would go to the hospital regularly for a comprehensive medical check-up. After all, this money was fully reimbursed by the Committee for the Children of Meritorious Contributors.
But now, he was hesitating because he realized that the strange fragrance he smelled just now seemed to be the smell of his urine.
“I go to the hospital to tell the doctor that I had ink-like urine, and this urine still has a fragrance?”
“The doctor will probably think that I’m crazy!”
“Even if I’m not… I’m afraid that he’ll ask me to urinate for verification!”
“What if the urine…”
Ling Ping’an shrunk his neck.
They might not slice him up for treatment.
However, the doctor would definitely ask him to assist in the research in the name of ‘science’, for example, providing samples regularly and lived in a designated place.
“It would be very troublesome if the urine is back to normal!” Ling Ping’an lifted his pants and said, “Then it would be considered as a prank…”
There didn’t seem to be anything abnormal in his body either.
So, it was better to wait and see.
Thinking of this, he walked to the bathroom mirror and looked at his appearance.
His face seemed to be a little whiter than yesterday.
His eyes also seemed to be a little brighter.
But other than that, there was nothing unusual.
He moved his body, he did not feel anything unusual.
The ink-like urine mixed with clear water rolled in the pipe and fell vertically.
In front of it, a vortex-shaped void door was waiting.
That door was like a monster with its mouth wide open.
The urine fell into the door.
It passed through the door with a faint light and fell into an old sewage ditch in Guangnan Jiangcheng City, a thousand kilometers south of the Imperial City.
The ink-like liquid fell into the dark ditch that was covered with spider webs and moss.
Bubbles appeared from the mud.
In the moss, there were hungry eyeballs.
Then, countless tentacles stretched out from the mud and walls.
If anyone was here, they would be scared to death because, in this seemingly unremarkable old sewer, it had become a paradise for monsters at some point!
To be precise, this was a world of monsters.
Thousands of monsters grew here.
Their appearances were strange, and their shapes were extremely distorted.
It was as if they were programs written by the wrong code.
If someone was able to observe the physiological structure of these monsters while remaining rational, he would discover that these things actually had two different characteristics.
They were like plants, fixing their roots firmly in the sewage ditch but they had limbs and mobility like animals.
They even had vocal organs.
And they were extremely fierce and brutal.
The surface of those tentacles was covered with barbs.
Those open sharp mouths were full of sharp teeth and poisonous glands.
They bit and attacked each other.
They were fighting for the ink-like liquid that fell into the sewer.
The entire sewer was shaking.
Space was tearing and the matter was annihilating but there was a strong strength that suppressed all these strange phenomena in this small area.
It imprisoned these monsters and kept them in captivity.
After an unknown amount of time, the battle between the monsters finally ended.
The sewage ditch was filled with the broken limbs of the losers.
The tentacles that were torn apart in the battle overlapped with each other.
Even though they were torn apart, they were still attacking each other.
They were even attacking themselves.
And in the walls and mud, there were thousands of monsters.
Even their roots were pulled up by their opponents and then torn apart in various ways.
Black, green, and purple thick blood flowed out from the broken limbs of these monsters.
The smell of this sewage ditch instantly became extremely stinky and pungent!
Any living creature, even if it only smelled these smells, would be poisoned to death!
This stench was enough to poison all living creatures!
The toxicity of this stench far surpassed all known chemical poisons.
The thick black, green, and purple blood was filled with corrosive properties.
Soon, it dissolved all the stump limbs that were piled up inside and outside the sewer.
Even their substance was dissolved.
The dense poisonous fog rose.
The stone bricks at the top of the sewer turned into powder and fell.
At this moment, a huge evil eye opened from the stone bricks.
The evil eye looked at everything in the sewer.
It seemed to be very satisfied and happy.
A few huge tentacles stretched out from the void and into the dense poisonous fog.
It was like a drunk guest in a nightclub.
The tentacles rolled up and greedily sucked the poisonous fog.
Then, more and more figures appeared in the sewage ditch.
There were things similar to the polyps in the ocean but their body structure was half-material and half-hidden in some void.
Their bodies were covered with countless fluffy things.
The mouthparts on their heads were ferocious and terrifying.
In a trance, the bodies of these things were completely ionized.
It was as if a race that lived in a solar flare had come from a star to feed on Earth.
There were also insects the size of pigeons with countless tentacles that were moving through the poisonous fog.
These insects were like the luminous fish in the depths of the ocean. Their bodies were covered with countless luminous cells.
They were like neon lights that were moving through the poisonous fog.
They were colorful, bizarre, and magnificent.
There were even ape-like shadows among them.
And all these monsters were desperately swallowing and absorbing the poisonous fog in the sewage ditch.
It was as if the poisonous fog was a necessity for their survival.
It was also as if the poisonous fog was proof of some rules and contracts.
It was like some creatures in nature who ate the excrement of higher-level individuals to confirm their status in the community.
Therefore, their feeding seemed to be rough and violent.
In fact, it had a strange sense of ritual.
Finally, thin roots-like things broke through the wall and fell into the poisonous fog.
A little girl’s figure appeared in the poisonous fog!
“Mine!” the little girl’s figure declared her sovereignty in the poisonous fog. She took a deep breath.
Her small mouth bulged.
Numerous mouthparts on the roots opened.
“All of them are mine!”
The mouthparts on the roots took a deep breath.
The poisonous fog was sucked in one by one.
The feast was over!
It sounded like a baby’s belch.
Above the sewage ditch, in the closed bookstore, countless shadows were faintly discernible in the darkness.
It was as if countless monsters were whispering.
The old stairs, which had been decades old, creaked.
The wooden planks of the stairs swayed.
They had the shape of flesh and blood.
As they walked up, between the cracks in the floor, glowing monsters the size of flying pigeons shuttled back and forth.
They had eaten their fill and were working hard.
They walked between the living room and the kitchen.
They busied themselves like hardworking worker bees.
The walls and doors seemed to have never existed in front of them.
In the kitchen cupboard, a monster that could not be described with words was in a jar.
The monster looked like a snake. It did not look big, at most 100 or 150 grams.
But in fact, its size could not be described in words.
Vaguely, the monster seemed to be entrenched in the deep space of millions of kilometers.
The scales on the surface of its body were still flowing with a certain color and luster.
The wine in the jar was bubbling.
One could vaguely hear countless prayers echoing in the bubbles of the wine.
“Father and lord of the snakes…”
“The great and nameless father…”
“Listen to the prayers of your followers…”
“Please accept our humble sacrifice!”
“Lord… Bless us…”
“Father… do not forsake us…”
Unfortunately, this once great beyond imagination and powerful beyond description foreign god had become a snake in a wine jar.
Millions of insect-like creatures constantly shuttled in and out of the wine jar.
They constantly surrounded this foreign god.
Their mouthparts secreted targeted venom.
This venom not only paralyzed this foreign god’s divine body but also decomposed his divine power.
It was like some kind of cruel torture.
Bit by bit, it dissolved the foreign god.
It turned into the medicinal properties in the wine jar and became the original liquid in the medicinal wine.
Not only that, the poison also had the effect of sealing and binding.
It slowly turned the god’s divine power and divinity into a kind of radioactive liquid that continuously released radiation.
This made anyone who was permitted to drink a cup of this medicinal wine that contained the foreign god’s divine power unaffected by the strength and terrifying divinity within.
That person would have a long time to digest it.
And above the kitchen…
A small peach tree slowly stretched its body at the corner of the rooftop.
Even though it was winter now, it still had more than ten emerald green leaves.
The shadow of the peach tree was reflected on the ground.
Vaguely, one could see a lake flowing with golden well water.
A childish voice seemed to be echoing on the rooftop.
Opposite this sapling, in the stove in the storeroom, a faint blue flame was swaying.
It was like an elf growing in a star.
The street outside the bookstore was full of cars and people.
The breakfast shop was doing very well.
Today’s steamed dumplings and tofu pudding were all sold out!
Aunt Cai, who was slightly fat, was holding a calculator and calculating today’s earnings.
“I made more than a thousand yuan today!” she nodded happily.
Her daughter was going to take the college entrance exam next year.
Now, she could think about hiring a few more tutors for her daughter.
With the good results in Jiangcheng City’s college entrance exam, Aunt Cai believed that her daughter would definitely get into her dream college!
At this time, a few people in formal clothes with blonde hair and blue eyes came to the breakfast shop.
They asked in fluent official language, “Lady boss, is there no breakfast left?”
Aunt Cai raised her head and looked at these customers. She nodded with a smile, “I’m sorry, all the breakfast today is sold out!”
“Oh…” When the foreign friends heard this, they couldn’t help but sighed, “Lady boss, why don’t you make more?”
The young researchers from Britannia felt like they had opened up a whole new life since they came to Jiangcheng City.
They finally realized that there really was delicious food in this world!
It wasn’t like what was found in Britannia where only a few were found after they tossed and turned.
This breakfast shop near their research institute had really opened their eyes!
Unfortunately, they slept a little more this morning.
In the end, there wasn’t even a steamed dumpling skin left.
What a pity!
They shook their heads and left helplessly.
At the intersection not far away, an LCD billboard was being installed by workers.
The installation work had been completed and it was now being adjusted.
The few young foreigners looked at it and couldn’t help stopping to look at it curiously.
A moment later, an image appeared on the LCD billboard.
A calm and well-dressed rich man appeared on the screen.
“I am Wang Shan!”
“The chairman of Wang Group in Yaodu!”
“I will work together with all the employees of our company!”
“Join Wang Group!”
“Share our development dividend!”
“From now on, all new employees will receive a gift from me!”
“This gift includes the discounted mortgage offered by the company!”
“I guarantee that all the employees can afford to buy a house in Yaodu and provide their families with peace of mind!”
“In addition, all the employees who have worked for one year will be rewarded with options that they deserve, just like the old employees!”
The rich man stood up and cupped his hands in front of his chest. “Join Wang Group and create a better future together!”
“I’m Wang Shan. I’m waiting for you in Yaodu!”
The few young men from Britannia were dumbfounded.
They looked at each other.
Now, was this how the recruitment of Easterners was done?
Didn’t they have a population of more than two billion?
Logically speaking, there should be no shortage of labor!
There should be hundreds of people competing for a job!
What was going on?
