Chapter 32: Saving A Live
Wang Wen was just an ordinary person.
He was not much faster than the ambulance when he arrived at World Tower Square.
The only thing he could do in time was to follow the stretcher into the car and stay by the boys side.
The boys body was riddled with thousands of holes as if a slew of crossbow bolts had pierced him.
Blood loss had made his face pale and a little gray.
After the doctors emergency treatment, they injected nutrients and blood into his body, but he barely breathed.
There were too many wounds.
They could not perform the surgery in the ambulance and could only temporarily bandage the bleeding.
The doctor looked at Wang Wen and said, “Are you his family From the looks of it, he wont be able to hold on for long.”
“We are classmates from the academy.”
Wang Wen lowered his head and looked at the boy.
He replied to the doctor, “We have already informed his mother.
She is on her way.
The doctor nodded and did not say anything else.
He focused on stopping the bleeding.
Wang Wen thought for a moment and took out the only World Tower item he had on him, Ginseng Fruit.
He handed it to the doctor and asked, “Can you give this to him Its the Ginseng Fruit from the 250th floor.”
The doctor looked at him in surprise.
He took the Ginseng Fruit and said, “I will try my best.
He cant eat anything now.”
He turned around and asked his assistant to grind the fruit and put it in a clean cup.
Then, he carefully fed the fruit to the thin boy.
The World Towers relic would melt when it entered ones mouth.
It was not easy to choke on it.
He fed the fruit to the boy.
His injuries did not improve.
However, the boy woke up.
He could at least open his eyes, despite his continued weakness.
He slowly turned his head to see Wang Wen standing beside him.
A smile appeared in his eyes, but it was quickly hidden by pain.
“It hurts…” the boys hoarse voice came from his throat.
The doctor stopped him from speaking.
Wang Wen said softly, “Dont be afraid.
Its just a minor injury.
Youll be fine after a few stitches at the hospital.”
The boy started coughing.
He coughed so hard that blood oozed from all over his body.
The doctor and his assistant were so busy that their foreheads were covered in sweat.
After being busy for a while, the doctor looked at the various instruments.
He seemed a little helpless.
He said, “Its a serious injury, nothing caused by old age.
The Ginseng Fruits effect is limited.”
He removed his mask and turned to face the boy.
He did not prevent the opposing party from speaking.
“You should say whatever you want to say.” He nodded to Wang Wen.
Wang Wens hands trembled.
He raised his head and asked the ambulance driver, “How much longer until we reach the hospital Please drive faster.
The driver knew what was going on.
He did not say anything and silently stepped on the accelerator.
The skinny boy struggled to raise his hand.
Wang Wen quickly reached out to hold him.
“Am I… dying” the skinny boy asked as he put his hand on Wang Wen.
Wang Wen pursed his lips and said, “I wont let you die.”
The boy panted heavily like he was deprived of oxygen.
After he calmed down, he shook his head and said, “Dont waste your energy…
“I am mentally prepared…
“I have no problem with scientific decryption.
“I didnt expect the mechanism to be so difficult.”
“Why did you enter the tower” Wang Wen asked, somewhat vexed.
“Dont you know that first-year students shouldnt enter the tower”
The boy seemed to smile as he said, “I want to earn money and treat you to a meal.”
“You didnt have to do that.”
Wang Wen looked at him silently, unable to speak.
They arrived at the hospital.
The boy closed his eyes and stopped breathing.
The medical staff quickly pushed the boy to the operating theater.
Before they entered, the doctor stopped Wang Wen and said, “Well do our best, but you have to be mentally prepared.”
Wang Wen nodded and said, “Dont worry about money.
Give him the best care possible.”
The door to the operating theater closed.
Not long after that, the thin boys mother arrived.
She was a thin middle-aged woman.
When she saw Wang Wen, she was drenched in sweat, as if she had been running.
She seemed calm; she did not break down much.
She calmly asked Wang Wen about the situation.
When she learned that her son was being treated in the operating theater, she nodded and sat on a stool against the wall, waiting quietly.
Wang Wen gave her his phone number, indicating she could call him.
The boys mother did not ask further.
She thanked him and did not say anything else.
Wang Wen strode out of the hospital and took a taxi to the First Consortium.
When he arrived at the intelligence department, he saw the middle teams leader, Tong Xiaolei.
He asked, “Is Chief Gu around”
Tong Xiaolei tilted her head, indicating that he was in the office.
Since they were already very familiar with each other, and he did not need her to lead the way, Wang Wen instantly walked into Chief Gus office.
The old man was checking the verification report.
He said, “Lend me something.
I cant afford it now, but I will repay the First Consortium ten times the amount within a year.
The old man put down the report in his hand, took off his glasses, and asked, “What do you want to borrow”
“A 500th floors relic, the Great Rejuvenation Golden Core.”
The old man smiled and shook his head.
Wang Wen insisted.
“You must have one!”
The old man curiously asked, “As everyone knows, the highest level anyone could reach was the 499th floor.
Why do you say we have something from the 500th floor Did someone find it by chance”
Wang Wen said, “With the strength of the First Consortium, you guys must have cultivated an elite team who could go beyond the 500th floor.
Please lend me the pill.
I want to save someone.
Its very urgent.”
The old man did not know whether to laugh or cry as he shook his head.
“What on earth are you thinking Lets not talk about whether we have it.
Even if we do have it, why should we lend it to you Just because you wanted one”
Wang Wen pressed his palm on the desk.
“Lend it to me.
I will remember this favor for the rest of my life.
In the future, no matter what happens, I will do as you say.”
The old man was silent.
He thought for a long time.
However, he still shook his head.
“Dont you want to show me any mercy” Wang Wen straightened his body and frowned.
The old man held the teacup.
He said, in a muffled voice, “Wang Wen, you should know the value of a rare item from the 500th floor.
Im afraid you wont be able to pay it back for the rest of your life, let alone a year.
Wang Wen nodded.
He gave the old man a profound look.
Then he turned around and left.
The old man put down the teacup.
He stared at the youth.
A trace of reluctance flashed through his heart.
He thought for a moment, pulled the drawer open, took out a strange-looking communicator, opened it, and said, “Do we have the Great Rejuvenation Golden Core”
The other side said, “Authorization.”
“Wait a moment… Yes.”
“Tell the intelligence department that I want to use it.”
“Chief Gu, are you sure This will cause you to lose all your shares.”
The old man raised his head to look at Wang Wen, who the team leader stopped outside the door.
He hesitated for a moment.
Then, he smiled and said, “Im sure, send it right away.”
‘Young Man, I hope you will keep your word and not let me down.
He picked up his teacup and looked out the door through the glass, patiently waiting for the long-awaited battle.
Wang Wen looked at Mo Ran expressionlessly.
“What is it”
Mo Ran took the mechanism at his waist and held it in his hand.
He said solemnly to Wang Wen, “Im the intelligence departments team leader, Mo Ran.
Please enlighten me.”
Wang Wen was impatient.
“I have something to do now.
Perhaps some other day.”
Mo Ran ignored him and rushed forward.
The mechanism in his hand flashed with a cold light.
All the intelligence department members looked at them.
The intelligence departments team leader was the person with the highest strength.
Everyone had heard of that battle long ago.
They had looked forward to it for a long time.
They only hoped the rude youth could last a little longer during the fight with the team leader.
It could be argued that he had not let go of the arrogance he had displayed for so long.
