Chapter 123: Boss Wei Is Good
The research had continued for a month. During this month, Su Hao had stayed secluded in his laboratory, carefully observing and exploring every change in his body before and after evolution.
All the daily necessities such as eating, drinking, and laundry were taken care of by Yashan. This kind of life was comfortable, far better than the last life when he was holed up in a cave, to say the least.
Within this month, Su Hao had found his answers. He followed many gene sequences through the complete evolution process, witnessing the synthesis and operation of CRISPR/Cas9. The steps of gene modification were also very clear.
Acquire gene fragments – Add to the gene database – Produce weaponry – Copy genes from the database – Carry the fragments to find matches – Successfully match – Cut genes – Implant extraordinary fragments – Repair and heal – Begin transcription.
Right, the process was that simple and straightforward.
Su Hao seemed to have glimpsed a bright future. “Hahaha!”
Laughter filled the laboratory.
Outside, Yashan and Taini immediately rushed into Su Hao’s laboratory. Yashan pushed open the door and saw Su Hao, dressed in white, standing with his hands on his hips, laughing heartily. He had a worried look on his face and asked, “Boss Wei, are you okay?”
Taini was holding a seemingly different small round rodent, her eyes widened in fear as she said, “Uncle Wei, cheer up!”
Then she turned to look at her father, Yashan, and said, “Dad, Boss Wei wouldn’t have any problems, would he?”
It was no wonder Yashan and Taini were so concerned. They had been taking care of Su Hao day and night, and they knew that Su Hao hadn’t slept for a long time. He spent his days with his eyes closed, sitting on the bed, lost in thought, and his complexion had grown increasingly haggard.
Boss Wei, who was so powerful, had actually become haggard. His two dark eyes, like eyeshadow on a seductive woman, looked terrifying. It was easy to imagine the torment that their Boss Wei had been through.
Yashan was very suspicious. Who could Boss Wei be missing from his previous life? But Boss Wei was only around ten years old, and it was too early to think about getting married!
Su Hao chuckled, and when he saw Yashan and Taini, he immediately said, “I’m fine, I’m just happy, joyful, it’s a normal phenomenon. Come on, I’m in a good mood today, so I’ll treat you to some delicious food!”
Su Hao thought for a moment, clapped his hands, and decided, “Braised whole fish, salt and pepper spare ribs, mushroom meatballs, five-spice spicy wings, twice-cooked pork, stir-fried mushrooms with eggs…”
Su Hao left with great excitement, but then his footsteps suddenly stopped, “Oh… Yashan, why don’t you prepare these dishes! I’ll treat you to them, but I’m feeling tired now. I’ll take a nap first, and when it’s ready, call me.”
Su Hao closed the laboratory door and lay down on the bed, covering his head to sleep. Don’t ask why there was a bed in the laboratory; he just liked it.
Outside the door, Yashan finally stammered, “Okay, Boss Wei!”
Taini tugged at Yashan’s clothes and asked, “Dad, can you cook these dishes?”
Yashan scratched his head and said, “I can’t.”
Taini asked, “So, what should we do? Do we still make these dishes?”
Yashan raised an eyebrow and said, “We make them, of course. Let’s make them according to their names! Hmm… let’s get the best chef in the city to prepare them for us!”
Taini reached out and pinched the small round rodent in her arms, her eyes lighting up. “Makes sense!”
The small round rodent struggled and squeaked, “Squeak, squeak…”
Su Hao slept for a full two days, and the dishes he had ordered were not made. Yashan and Taini had finished them all. The reason was that he was sleeping too soundly and couldn’t be woken up!
The two of them didn’t dare to shout loudly, so they could only knock on the door gently and call out softly, “Boss Wei… wake up and eat…”
Naturally, he couldn’t be awakened.
So Yashan asked the chef to prepare a table of delicious dishes every half day, but each time Su Hao was still asleep, and in the end, Yashan and Taini enjoyed the feast.
Until the next day at noon, Su Hao woke up groggily. As soon as he woke up, he thought about the food he had ordered and muttered to himself, “The dishes I ordered should be ready, right?”
Without checking the time in the virtual space, he went out directly. Following the delicious aroma, he came to the living room and saw a table full of hot dishes already on the table.
He couldn’t help but smile and said, “It looks like I didn’t miss it! The timing was just right.”
Yashan smiled and replied, “Of course…”
After all, Su Hao was the boss; everything he said was right.
Taini squeezed the small round rodent in her hand vigorously.
The small round rodent: “…”
Su Hao urged, “Come on, sit down and eat. I’m treating you to this meal.”
After having their fill, Su Hao stood up and stretched lazily. He said, “I’m going to freshen up first; you guys enjoy yourselves.”
Since deciphering the secrets of genes, Su Hao’s mood had become exceptionally joyful. It was as if a major issue that had weighed on his mind had been resolved, and he felt remarkably spirited.
As for the legendary state of “neither elated by external gains nor upset by personal losses,” Su Hao had not reached it yet. It was said that a person’s mental state could be divided into seven levels: “instinctive stage,” “awareness of the source,” “self-acceptance,” “alignment of knowledge and action,” “selfless concentration,” “compassion for others,” and “enlightenment and awakening.”
Su Hao’s mental state was probably still at the third level, “self-acceptance.” When he encountered something extremely joyous, he wouldn’t suppress his emotions; he would express them directly.
When he reached the fifth level, he would truly understand the inner workings of all things, have minimal emotional fluctuations, and achieve the state of “neither elated by external gains nor upset by personal losses.”
After freshening up, Su Hao walked through the streets of Temple Forest City with a relaxed step. People on the way immediately greeted him with smiles: “Hello, Boss Wei!”
“Boss Wei, you look energetic today!”
“Good afternoon, Boss Wei!”
After taking a stroll, Su Hao received countless compliments and returned to the base in satisfaction.
If someone encountered Su Hao without offering greetings, what would happen?
Su Hao didn’t care, but the henchmen of the “Temple Forest Society” would secretly bind the person at nightfall and make them recite the “Code of Conduct for Unusual Activities” and chant “Boss Wei is good!” until dawn.
The members of the Temple Forest Society had elevated Su Hao to a high position, treating his words as sacred. This could only be attributed to Yashan’s excellent brainwashing methods. Everyone had been reprogrammed quite effectively.
The future of Temple Forest City was promising.
Su Hao returned to the base, planning to evolve into a second-level Mutant, the “Rampager,” in the near future.
The second stage of his evolution into the “Shell Man” had already ended, and his body was in a stable state, ready to continue evolving. In just one month of evolving into the “Shell Man,” Su Hao’s blood energy had surged once again to unprecedented heights. In his previous life, it was equivalent to reaching the highest Ancestral level, although not as exaggerated as the level of a King, it was getting close.
Who knew that once he evolved into a “Rampager,” his blood energy would surge again, possibly surpassing the King level.
His radar perception range had also expanded with the increase in blood energy intensity, reaching the extreme limit of 4,500 meters. It now covered the entire Temple Forest City.
“Coming to this world, my strength has once again been enhanced! So, the next step is to truly take this power and make it my own! Cas9, you can’t escape now!”
By the way, how could Cas9 be synthesized without the use of modern tools?
Su Hao had a bold idea.
