Chapter 5

[Proceed to tutorial mode]

-

[Tutorial Mode started. Beginning second part of tutorial]

-

[Our world reached the peak of technology twenty years ago. When that happened, what was in our mind was not survival but expansion]

-

[We've chosen to expand outward, through the universe. That ended up as a foolish decision as we've resorted to gene modification and cloning. This technology ended up being misused as it started to limit the number of people born naturally]

-

[Without sufficient data and creativity, it hindered our growth. More people resorted to the option of creating their offspring through cell extraction. Out of a hundred thousand babies, 9% of them actually came from the same growth solution from formation until they're grown to the desired stage of adulthood]

-

[This allowed our world to establish a workforce or military using the shortest time]

-

[But when it comes to fighting against the Seed Crystal Virus, our technology advantage backfired. The immunity we have ended up as a flaw as the infection spreads throughout the entire world within one year]

-

[The first outbreak of Seed Crystal Virus spreads through airborne. Once infected, it only takes less than six hours for the symptom to start showing. Those infected will then quickly lost control over their sanity and attacked those that "smell" different from them]

-

[Of course, mankind immediately came up with a prevention tactic. A finished product of Antiviral Material is soon created in the fifth year to control the symptoms but not treating the root of the cause]

-

[Eventually, twenty years have passed since the first day of the Seed Crystal Virus outbreak. Out of our 212 shelters with living equipment, only 21 of them remained undisclosed]

-

[As for living beings, the locals of the world are no longer the same as before. As most of them were cloned and released upon reaching maturity age, they're similar to a tribe of barbarian nowadays]

-

[Second part of the tutorial is now over]

-

[The user has successfully recovered 16.% of his stamina. The estimated time the user can respond clearly to instructions increases by four hours and minutes]

Waking up from a few hours nap, Zhang Qin Feng quickly made his way downstairs to order a few dishes and a few beers while he waits for Fatty Xie.

But the incident that happened earlier with Stein made him unable to focus as his mind kept returning to the part when Stein speaks inside his mind.

"Hey, what makes you think so deeply? Did working at your uncle's place is too difficult?" Fatty Xie asked as he picked a slice of beef from the dish they ordered. After fiddling it together with some rice, it went into his mouth.

"Nothing. I'm just tired because there's too much to do there. But I think it will get slightly better after I get used to it." Zhang Qin Feng replied. The bottle of beer in his hand is still a third full.

'Tired? There must be something else in your mind… Nah, I'm sure you'll be looking for me when you have no other people to talk about. I'll just let you do what you like.' Fatty Xie thought. Taking one of the barbeque stick on another plate, he devoured it all in a mouthful.

"Come, give my bottle a knock and let's finish this." Fatty Xie waved his beer before Zhang Qin Feng.

"Alright. I'm sorry, buddy… There's too much in my mind right now." Zhang Qin Feng finished the bottle of beer in a gulp, and not long after that, both of them returned to their own place.

**Ding!**

A text message came no long after he gets inside his accommodation.

'2166-818888. Call this number if you need to get your phone repaired. If you need to buy a new phone, just say that Fatty Xie introduced you. They should be fine for giving you a new replacement. Don't get something too expensive.' even after they returned to their own place, Fatty Xie did not forget to make sure that he sent Zhang Qin Feng a text.

'Don't worry. I'll be back to my optimal condition soon.' Zhang Qin Feng replied. Feeling warm for having a best buddy like Fatty Xie, Zhang Qin Feng smiled.

But his smile is short-lived as the low battery notice came almost immediately the moment he touched the phone.

'STEIN, can you stop draining all the power from my mobile phone?' Zhang Qin Feng asked.

-

[There's no other option is available for now. To unlock more features of the Dimensional System, I suggest that user search for a more powerful power generator]

-

Stein replied.

-

'Is there any other method of recharging is available?' Zhang Qin Feng asked.

-

[There's a method, but the risk is too high. Suggesting that the user increases his physical fitness before challenging]

-

Stein's reply hurts his pride, but Zhang Qin Feng knew himself the best. Sports and fitness were indeed the last of all his concerns. As a youngster in his twenties, he never once seriously participates in any of these subjects before.

-

'Then… What can I do?" Zhang Qin Feng asked.

-

[Based on the system's recommendation, I believe that we should start by working out on the user's physical fitness while waiting for the Dimensional System to recover more functions]

-

'What can the Dimensional System do for me?' Zhang Qin Feng asked. In his mind, he's curious about what STEIN is capable of doing.

-

[The possibility is limitless. Perhaps the user can give an example of what you're aiming to achieve in your life?]

-

'Then, STEIN… Can you make me rich? Help me to create more of these notes out. To the point, I can obtain everything I want in this world.' Zhang Qin Feng bet all his credibility in making this wish.

As he finished his sentence, a hint of embarrassment came to his mind as he felt funny deep inside his heart. Remembering that he was rejected in all fifteen interviews, he wonders if there's still a reason for him to keep struggling.

-

[Does that means the obsession of the people in this world is these currency-like materials?]

-

Stein's way of describing what Zhang Qin Feng asked for is somewhat different but accurate.

-

'Is there no such thing as money back in your world?" Zhang Qin Feng asked.

-

[There is. It is what the barbarian used to differentiate the social status nowadays from where I came from. But we don't use this paper as currency. Instead, we used something only found from the infected as well as raw resources]

-

'Huh? Resources? You mean…' Zhang Qin Feng's sense of money is tingling.

-

[Yes. Resources. Such as ready-to-eat meals, ammunition, slave, and Duranium Shards]

-

'Now… Everything started to get more interesting. But before this… Do you have a method to make more of these for me here?" Zhang Qin Feng took the red one hundred dollars note out from his pocket and stretched the piece of paper note in front of him.

-

[Easy. I noticed a section regarding currency investment in the newspaper the user's uncle read when he's free. Please put in some effort to obtain the record for an entire month. From there, I'll be able to come up with a proper plan]

-

Stein's suggestion immediately caught Zhang Qin Feng's interest.

-

'Is that's all you needed to start?' Zhang Qin Feng asked.

-

[Yes. This would be one of the most stable starting points we can access with a small capital]

-

[Also, it will be beneficial to the user as it can train your physical fitness at the same time]

-

[Good luck, user]
