Chapter 21: It’s Another Height Difference
The area where the Human Federation was located was very large. Just transmitting messages between the two farthest inhabited planets would take a month , so it was even more impossible to connect their networks. Nevertheless, with the current technology, it was still possible to connect several close-by planets, though it required a lot of money to set up the interstellar transmission equipment.
Capital Planet, the economic and cultural center of the Human Federation, used such technology to establish a network connection with several nearby residential planets. The network here was also the most advanced.
In some remote planets of the Human Federation, they could only browse two-dimensional information with computers with a network just like that of ancient earth. However, the holographic network has existed for thousands of years in Capital Planet.
Before, Ren Sheng had no identity chip and knew nothing about science and technology. Shen Qiushi merely used computers to let him watch cartoons and so on. But now, Ren Sheng’s identity had already been settled, and he knew about this world to some extent, so there was no problem for him to enter the virtual network at once.
After providing a helmet for minors which was for Ren Sheng to use, and conveniently binding his account, Zhao Lingyu brought Ren Sheng into the network. Before they went online, he did not forget to teach Ren Sheng some precautions: “Each account can be used to set three virtual bodies. You can allow the helmet to scan and generate the data for the virtual body on its own. For safety purposes, you’d better set it by yourself. Also, don’t use your real name.”
Ren Sheng nodded with an excited expression on his face. Zhao Lingyu had already told him about the holographic network in detail. He also saw some videos taken from the whole network. He naturally wanted to try it now.
“Let’s go online together. I’ll take you to class.” Zhao Lingyu said again.
“Okay.” Ren Sheng put on his helmet and started set it up.
Zhao Lingyu also entered the network at this time. His account was a special account. He could set ten virtual bodies, as well as disguise his account, setting the information that could be seen by others. But before today, he had only set two.
One of these two was directly scanned using his original appearance. The other one he disguised as an expert in virtual online battle strategy. No matter which account he logged in to, it was not suitable to bring Ren Sheng along with him.
After mulling it over, Zhao Lingyu also created a new character.
Zhao Lingyu was worried about Ren Sheng. So, he was in a hurry and he didn’t want to waste time on building a new character. Finally, he chose a very popular model and altered his appearance a little. Considering Ren Sheng’s small size, he also lowered his height a little bit.
Although it felt pretty good to have Ren Sheng sitting on his arm, there was such a big difference between them that sometimes he was not used to it. He even inexplicably felt that he was quite beastly.
When Zhao Lingyu appeared on the landing square, there was no one around him. It was only after he had waited for a while that he saw a ray of light flashing.
Is the little guy here? Zhao Lingyu looked over and was ready to greet the other’s embrace.
However, the situation was quite different from what he imagined.
Zhao Lingyu was speechless when he saw a big man standing beside him who was taller than himself. At this time, a prompt box appeared in front of him: “Ginseng wants to engage in intimate activities with you. Do you agree?”
After a moment of silence, Zhao Lingyu nevertheless chose “yes”. Then, Ren Sheng, who had been separated from him (ZL), rushed into his (ZL) arms… No, it should be said that he (RS) jumped over and held him (ZL) in his (RS) arms.
Reaching out to push Ren Sheng, Zhao Lingyu asked lightly: “How did you think of using such an appearance?”
“I made it according to you. Doesn’t it look very strong? It’s a pity they won’t let me use your face. Anything that resembles you too much was out of question.” Ren Sheng said cheerfully. Ever since he knew he could set his own appearance, he wanted to have a huge body. Naturally, he did not hesitate to set it up according to Zhao Lingyu. Unfortunately, the system did not allow him to make it have the exact same appearance. Finally, he had no choice but to choose a face provided by the system.
The figure was exactly the same as his (ZL) and his height was also very similar. He could see that this little guy knew him very well, but this time he chose an average figure and deliberately lowered his height. Compared with the tall “him”…. Even if the difference between the two was not as great as in reality, he was a little smaller than Ren Sheng.
He wanted to reduce the height gap between them both. Could this also be considered a successful disguise?
“Zhao Lingyu, this appearance that you’ve changed into, I’m kind of not used to it.” Ren Sheng enthusiastically appreciated his own appearance, but stated again—he actually couldn’t jump into Zhao Lingyu’s arms!
“Just get used to it,” Zhao Lingyu also didn’t know whether he was saying it to himself or Ren Sheng. “Oh, that’s right. Later on, you can call me Rainforest or big brother.”
Ren Sheng nodded: “Okay!”
“Let’s go together. I’ll take you to the beginner class first. After that, I’ll take you to the plant-ability training class,” said Zhao Lingyu. Ren Sheng often gave him (ZL) the impression that he (RS) was plant-ability user. However, he found that Ren Sheng was not a conventional plant-ability user at all… He didn’t even tell this to his mother. He wanted Ren Sheng to learn more first, understand the matters regarding plant-ability users , so that it can serve as a disguise in the future.
Ren Sheng also knew that he had been mistaken as a plant-ability user, but he didn’t dare to ask for more information before. Now, hearing that he could go to school, he naturally wouldn’t refuse. It’s just that he originally wanted to hang onto Zhao Lingyu, but as he compared their body types, he found that it simply wouldn’t work.
However, he wanted to be close to Zhao Lingyu… It was really strange. He clearly couldn’t feel the soil energy from Zhao Lingyu in this place, so how could there still be this kind of way of thinking?
While feeling confused, Ren Sheng grabbed Zhao Lingyu’s arm. As a result, the moment he was done with this action, a colorful person suddenly appeared in front of him (RS). He looked at him (RS) in shock: “Boss? What happened to you?”
Wu Shuai thought he was going crazy. When he found out that his boss’s account had logged on to the network, he came over hurriedly. As a result, he saw someone who looked suspiciously like his boss holding another man’s elbow with his hand… How could his boss do such a thing?
” I’m busy with something now. I’ll see you later.” Zhao Lingyu said.
It was only at this moment that Wu Shuai noticed the person who was a little shorter than him. He (WS) realized that, although this person used a common face, yet he was still domineering. Finally, he recognized the real boss and was relieved.
He truly deserved to be his boss. He could make such a strong man look like a little bird relying on people!
Wu Shuai looked at Zhao Lingyu with admiration and left after that, leaving Ren Sheng feeling somewhat baffled.
Zhao Lingyu glanced at Ren Sheng and bound the other party with a guardian’s authority, then chose the location of the tutoring class. After a flash of light, they reached the destination.
Although there were schools in reality, they were expensive. There were quite a lot of parents who would choose to let their children receive education through the network. Most of these children would use their original appearance, under the guidance of their guardians, enter the class in an orderly manner.
“Hello, are you two here to register your children?” A young girl asked curiously while looking at the two men.
These two people should be a loving same-sex couple right? Their physiques match each other very well. However, this strong man’s behavior revealed how awkward he was… The newly graduated teacher secretly sized up Ren Sheng, who was looking around with a face full of curiosity.
“I came here to sign him up.” Zhao Lingyu pointed to Ren Sheng.
“Huh?” The young girl was utterly confused.
“I gave the child the option to select his appearance himself. He set his appearance like this.” Zhao Lingyu said without changing expression. He also conveniently helped Ren Sheng report his name.
After reading the simple data, the girl found that Ren Sheng was using a helmet for minors. However, most parents would worry about their children’s learning and they would use their parents’ authority to set their children’s appearance. It was rare for a parent to let their child play around and change their appearance into a tall and bulky fellow …
Was this man not afraid that his child might develop puppy love later while having this appearance?
Alright, it was too early for people in the beginner class to talk about puppy love anyway…
The young girl glanced at Ren Sheng. After accepting the setting of a four or five-year-old in a body of two meters, she felt it was a little cute.
 It was a pun from Ren Sheng name to Renshen literally means Ginseng. Yes! Renshen. It was not a typo. I just put an english name to avoid confusion.
 It actually a reverse from Lingyu name to Yulin with ‘g’ removed. Yulin means Rainforest. I also put an english name. So, you can feel ‘virtual reality setting’ in this chapter. lol.
 小鸟依人/xiǎoniǎoyīrén is an idiom means cute and helpless-looking
Awe Hidden Corner: Sorry guys. I couldn’t squeeze more chapter this month. I was umm… digging pits and filling it ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). Anyways, Happy Chinese New Year to who celebrated it. Gong Xi Fa Cai!
