Science and Technology Library - Chapter 5
Li Ruoxi was just about to speak when Xiao Yu sat down beside her.
Currently, Xiao Yu really wanted to find a hole in the ground to crawl into. Why was it that when she ran into a good friend, that friend sold her secrets without any benefits. Was she worried that no one would marry her?
“I need to go to the bathroom with Ruoxi.”
Xiao Yu didn’t dare look directly at Chen Mo and forcefully pulled Li Ruoxi out of the study area.
“Xiao Yu, why do I feel like you’re going to kill me?” Li Ruoxi’s heart had grown anxious when she was captured by Xiao Yu. She looked at Chen Mo and said, “The answer to the question earlier is to’ explore’ yourself. Otherwise, someone will kill me. Remember, you owe me a favor…”
Chen Mo hadn’t expected this turn of events. However, Li Ruoxi’s words gave him a good starting point to understanding Xiao Yu better.
After getting his emotions back under control, Chen Mo continued to read the book in his hand. Right now, he was still lacking in every way, the only thing he excelled at was his reading posture.
It wasn’t long before Xiao Yu returned to her seat, her friend noticeably missing. Her face was still a bit flushed.
“Everything Ruoxi said just now was nonsense. Don’t give it any mind.”
“She was fine, it’s just unfortunate that she didn’t tell me that last bit of information.”
As soon as he said those words, Xiao Yu’s redness, which hadn’t even managed to fully retreat yet, instantly reappeared in full force. She turned red to her ears and beyond.
Chen Mo smiled and returned his gaze to his book as though he hadn’t said anything.
This morning he managed to read 10 books on medicinal prescriptions and comprehensive analyses of the medicinal ingredients. The results so far were not bad. If he added on the 6 books he read last night, that was already 16 books.
Supervisor Shu Lao said that learning 100 science and technology books would allow him to acquire a technique. For him, it was definitely a tempting incentive.
He had also found all the medicines needed for the novice potential development techniques.
After they ate, Chen Mo sent Little Xiao back to her dorm. However, he didn’ t return to his dorm, instead he left the university grounds.
He had obtained the Low-level Human Potential Development Technology, and it wasn’t meant to be showcased. There are methods for developing human potential, including prescriptions and instructions on how to use them.
It sounded a bit mysterious.
However, the potential development medicine couldn’t be created in the dormitory. He would have to rent a house outside of the school in order to do so. Otherwise, many things would end up being exposed.
In the vicinity of Binhai University the rent really was expensive, even one bedroom and one bath would cost 1300 a month.
However, there were still some benefits that could be found. This was someone else’s vacated room, so it was fully furnished. There was also a bathtub in the bathroom, making it a convenient place for him to take a medicinal bath.
After paying two months worth of rent and the deposit, Chen Mo’s face collapsed when he saw the amount of money left in his bank account. In the future, he had to think of a way to make money, or else he would have to feel sorry for the powerful brain and science library.
After dusting and cleaning up the room, Chen Mo went to the nearby market to purchase the required medicinal herbs.
While he was still feeling a bit pained by the rent, the medicinal ingredients made his flesh ache further. The already pitiful balance had become even more miserable.
To develop the low-grade human body potential, if it was a drinkable medication also known as an elixir, it would only require a single dose. However, if it was an ordinary medicinal bath it would require three doses. This was just the beginning, the amount of medicine needed right now was not much. It was also a common medicinal ingredient. Otherwise, he would not be able to find enough medicinal ingredients.
He had purchased two bags of medicinal ingredients containing 32 different kinds of medicinal ingredients, it all weighed over 10 pounds. All of them were ground into powder according to the quantities required in the prescription.
More than 10 pounds of medicinal powder cost more than 1500 Red Notes. This was also the reason why he felt distressed.
When he returned to the rented room, he boiled a portion of the medicine according to the prescription. The other portion would be placed into the hot water bath. Only after waiting for more than an hour did he prepare the medicinal soup.
Chen Mo swallowed nervously as he looked at the black oil and the liquid-soaked medicinal soup with dread. Would he even manage to drink such a strong medicine?
This medicinal soup seemed to be a bit terrifying. If he hadn’t learned about it in the science and technology library, he really wouldn’t have known what it was.
He took off his clothes and hesitated for a moment before he stepped into the bath.
The boiling medicinal soup caused his eyes to open wide. He sucked in a breath of cold air and almost jumped out.
According to the recipe, refining these medicinal ingredients would release a substance that could activate one’s potential and form a medicine.
There were no instruments that would make the process easier, only suffering.
What kind of ghastly science was this?
Chen Mo forcefully endured the scorching heat as he quickly dunked himself into the bath water. His skin burned to the point that it turned red and bean-sized sweat quickly formed on his forehead before dripping into the medicinal bath.
Not long after, a great wave of fatigue assaulted him, causing him to lean against the side of the bath and fall into a deep slumber.
After an unknown period of time, Chen Mo regained consciousness.
The enormous science and technology library’s entrance was right in front of him. Chen Mo didn’t hesitate to push the door open.
“Supervisor Shu, are there any side effects in using this thing?” When Chen Mo saw Supervisor Shu, he quickly asked his question with a bitter expression. “I feel like I’ve fallen into a pot of boiling water.”
“Of course there are. A good medicine is always bitter, and it’s not like bathing in dew. Could it be that you thought it would be comfortable and fragrant?” Elder Shu asked. “The heat allows your pores to relax and accelerate your skin’s absorption of all the substances that stimulate your potential. It also promotes blood circulation so that it can transport the medicine throughout your entire body, and increase the medicinal effects.”
“What you said makes a lot of sense.” Chen Mo scratched his head and said,”After I wake up, something should have changed, right?”
“Now that you’ve finished it, you’ll be able to see the results when you leave here,” Supervisor Shu said. “Next, you’ll need to use equipment to adapt your strength. Just do as you want.”
After chatting with Supervisor Shu, Chen Mo closed the book and left the science and technology library.
After he entered the door of light, Chen Mo, who was lying in the bath, slowly opened his eyes. The dense medicinal smell dug into his nostrils, which woke him up instantly.
He sat up in the bath and discovered that the medicinal soup was still black, but the heat had already disappeared.
After he washed off the medicinal bath residue with water, Chen Mo noticed his body had changed. When he walked to the mirror, Chen Mo’s eyes flashed with disbelief.
His body had grown a bit taller and while his body didn’t have any extremely noticeable muscles, his lines were even and smooth. He looked extremely comfortable. He flexed his muscles and the definition that was hidden beneath his skin quickly erupted, they were filled with the beauty of strength.
At that moment, Chen Mo felt that his entire body was filled with endless strength. This kind of strength wasn’t very stable. According to the book, he still had to train and learn to control and adapt to his newfound strength.
“I am becoming handsome again.” After putting on his clothes, Chen Mo rubbed his chin as he looked towards the mirror and a narcissistic smile appeared on his face.
After cleaning up the bathroom, Chen Mo left the room.
He bought a membership card for the gym near the school and headed towards the library after eating.
On weekends, there were a lot of people in the library. Chen Mo selected a few books that specialized in computer science, then walked towards the study area and sat down beside Xiao Yu.
Xiao Yu turned her head when she sensed a person joining her. When she saw Chen Mo, her eyes lit up. She noticed that Chen Mo seemed to be a little different.
“Do you feel like I’ve become more handsome?” Chen Mo whispered to Xiao Yu’s ear.
Hearing his words, Xiao Yu lightly laughed. She ignored his narcissism and continued to study. When Xiao Yu started laughing, Chen Mo felt several envious, jealous, and hateful gazes from the surrounding areas as they landed on him.
This wasn’ t the place to continue talking, so Chen Mo quickly focused his attention on learning the computer language.
The amount of money he had spent was a lot. He had to think of a way to make money. Having a powerful brain and learning things was easier and faster than others was his advantage, so he needed to make use of them thoroughly.
In this era, the fastest way to make money was over the web. However, the precondition was to master computer technology.
