Undying Patient C1
Chapter 1: The Boss in a Wheelchair 
The wall clock “ticking” rings regularly and the slender hollow second hand turns around the Roman numeral one after another. Outside the Atlantis, a few snow-white seagulls fluttered their wings and flew over the side of the cruise ship from time to time, dropping herringbone shadows in front of the huge French windows.
Su Jinzhi shifted his line of sight to the Deputy captain walking in front of the standing attendants.
He was tall, dressed in a long black coat with a retro cut, which slightly concealed his fat body. His cheeks were clean on both sides. Half of the decorative brass bracelet hung in his pocket. He was like a loyal old housekeeper in a medieval castle. Only the thin sweat on his forehead showed his restless heart.
“Why haven’t you come…” He furrowed his brows as he murmured after exhaling, and then turned to look up at the magnificent wall clock. His eyes suddenly widened, he took a deep breath, shook his head anxiously, and continued to walk back and forth in front of them.
Between the steps, his heel collided with the clean marble brick, and the dull and rapid steps made everyone in the room nervous with him.
Su Jinzhi is the calmest one in the group. He glanced at the vice-captain casually and then raised his hand to tidy up his collar.
His uniform was made by the vice-captain for him. It was more delicate and comfortable – and more attractive – than the cheap clothes worn by other attendants standing beside him. He spent three months as an attendant on this cruise ship and got the clothes. He didn’t get half of his salary and spent almost all his savings. He spent so much energy just for today.
To be exact, it’s for the man who booked the highest three floors of Atlantis today – Qin Yezhou, the main goal of saving the world.
Atlantis has 16 floors. It’s a super cruise ship with a displacement of more than 100000 tons. It’s known as “the sea city of the rich”. Just Qin Yezhou only bought three floors on the top. Just hearing about this and you can tell how rich he is.
But it’s hard to please the rich. There’s less than an hour before the cruise time, but Qin Yezhou hasn’t boarded yet. If he boarded after the cruise time, the vice-captain would probably be busy again, so it’s no wonder that he’s (T/N: the vice-captain) so nervous right now.
“Is Mr. Qin here yet? Already here?! ” The vice-captain held the phone which was he had just picked up and after being confirmed, his face was full of ecstasy. At the same time, he took out an exquisite handkerchief from his pocket and wiped the sweat beads on his forehead, and walked towards Su Jinzhi.
Seeing this, Su Jinzhi quickly put down his hands that were tidying up his collar and hid the panic and timidity in the depths of his eyes, putting on a neat smile. But even though he had tried his best to make the smile “neat” as possible, the vice-captain was still a bit absent-minded. After he got back to his senses, he immediately went Su Jinzhi’s side and asked the chef to give the food cart to Su Jinzhi. Then he patted his shoulder and whispered in his ear, “Mr. Qin is here.”
“Yes…” Su Jinzhi whispered with his head down. From an angle that others could not see, his lips were slightly hooked. He ignored the sighs of other waiters behind him and pushed the food cart away.
Because of his appearance, Su Jinzhi has been talked about since he embarked on this cruise ship. Even though he maintains the image of “pure and kind” little white lotus set by the system to an extreme, there is absolutely no sign of collapse, but he can’t stop his colleagues’ suspicion and contempt.
What can he do? After all, he was born in the interstellar age, a place without ugly people.
At that time, most human beings had been genetically modified. Not only did they have perfect looks as if God elaborately fabricated them, but also a strong body like steel and a century-long life.
But even so, he still died – he died of ineffective rescue.
By 3500 interstellar year, more than half of the organs could be replaced by mechanization, and the medical treatment was highly developed. Few people died of ineffective rescue. Most people only died in wars or sudden deaths.
He was obviously in the hospital, but he still died of ineffective rescue.
Because he is a pure human.
However, it’s no use thinking about this now. He can’t die now anyways.
But even if you can’t die, you will still feel uncomfortable and suffer in pain.
When he reached the 15th floor of the cruise ship, Su Jinzhi’s body slightly shook. He leaned against the wall and took a deep breath. He bit the tip of his tongue and pressed down the disgusting feeling of surging up his throat. Then he moved on.
When he reached the 15th floor of the cruise ship, Su Jinzhi’s body slightly shook. He leaned against the wall and took a deep breath. He bit the tip of his tongue and pressed down the nauseous vomiting feeling surging up his throat. Then he moved on.
“Are you not comfortable host?” Su Jin walked footsteps paused for a second. The system that is said to be bound to his soul spoke. The rigid mechanical voice was unique to the youth’s ears. Su Jinzhi immediately recognized that it was No. 0. It said, “as long as you hurry to Mr. Qin’s side, you will be very comfortable.”
“I got it.” Su Jinzhi responded coldly, “you talk too much.”
Anyone who has been repeatedly hearing “do the task quickly or you will die in pain” would not be in a good mood even after three months——especially people like Su Jinzhi who want to live, especially those like him who are afraid of death.
“Ying ying ying…” No. 0 was scolded by the host and left with some sobs.
Su Jinzhi listened to No. 0’s sobs for a while and felt a bit guilty. Although he knew that this was just an inherent procedure set by an AI, he could not help but feel some sadness.
But when Su Jinzhi saw what Mr. Qin looked like, he didn’t want No. 0 to leave, he wanted to pull it back and beat it to death.
“Can you even do anything?”
Seeing Qin Yezhou’s appearance, the teapot Su Jinzhi was holding tilted and spilled onto another teacup on the side. Then, a bodyguard standing beside Qin Yezhou pushed him away so hard that he had to take a few steps back to stabilize himself.
“S-Sorry…” Su Jinzhi quickly bowed his head and apologized for his mistake. His hands were hanging on his side, and they were close to his thighs.
The young man hung his head down, and the black hair of the crow was soft on his forehead. His face was as white as paper. His long eyes were trembling with fear and panic. The young man looked like a white camellia with morning dew. He looked very pitiful, making him unable to scold him anymore.
So when the person who pushed him opened his mouth, he didn’t have the heart to scold him.
Qin Yezhou, who was in a wheelchair, took the towel from another bodyguard and slowly wiped the water on his leg. He completely ignored Su Jinzhi during the whole process——like that person.
Maybe it was because he saw that Qin Yezhou was not angry, he pushed away the bodyguard, frowned and sighed, then went to Su Jinzhi’s side and said in a small voice, “go go go, Mr. Qin, this kind of person, doesn’t need to be served.”
If it was before, Su Jinzhi might’ve just fought back a bit for the sake of completing the task in order for No. 0 to stop annoying him. Bur after seeing what Qin Yezhou looks like, all he wanted to do was to run far away from this man and never see him again.
So he bowed and left without saying anything.
As Su Jinzhi walked, he called out the system silently in his mind, “No. 0, No. 0! You come out and explain to me why Qin Yezhou grew to look exactly like that man?”
“The model of the main goal of rescue was chosen by yourself, host. Does it still need to be explained?” Not only is the sound of the system devoid of emotion, but it was also full of provocation.
“When did I choose it?” Su Jinzhi went into the toilet and poured cold water on his face before he calmed down a little bit. He continued to press the system, “I’m not asking you. What about No. 0?”
“Host had chosen it at the moment of death in the source world.” The voice of No. 1 is colder, “No. 0 went to the headquarters to fight for the latest welfare for host.”
The moment of death?
Yes, he vaguely remembers that before his death, No. 0 asked him a question – please choose the general model for the target of rescue. Since host couldn’t speak at the moment, host only needs to form a three-dimensional picture in his mind.
It was practically impossible!
At that time, he died immediately. In his vague consciousness, he seemed to see that man standing in front of him, so his thoughts were full of that man. Does No. 0 think that this is the model for the target of rescue he chose to save?
Su Jin raised his head and looked at himself in the mirror. After a few seconds of silence, he asked, “Is it too late for me to change now?”
No. 1 replied, “The welfare quota of this option has been robbed by the headquarters, host can participate in the fight (T/N: for that benefit) when entering the next world.”
However, Su Jinzhi didn’t have time to say anything more before hearing No. 1 say, “but the benefit, ‘One half-hour of a night in spring is worth a thousand taels’ (T/N: this means = Every minute of the wedding night is precious) is still valid.”
Su Jinzhi raised his brow.
As its name implies, the “One half-hour of a night in spring is worth a thousand taels” benefit can be used for all living creatures. The effect can enable the user to allow them to bring the affected target into an illusion and experience a spring night with them without any side-effects. It is safe and secure. It is a treasure for any host to save the world by relying on his body, sow the seeds of love, and build a harmonious society.
Disadvantage: it can only be used in the same world.
This “One half-hour of a night in spring is worth a thousand taels” benefit is the only reason why Su Jinzhi decided to get on the boat to save Qin Ye Zhou by relying on the power of love after hesitating for a long time.
This is the only way they can finish the task.
Qin Yezhou is handsome and rich. I’m afraid no woman didn’t want to marry him before. Unfortunately, he had a car accident three years ago. He couldn’t move below his knee. He had to stay in a wheelchair ever since. His mother died early. His father took his stepmother right after his leg was broken. He also brought his illegitimate son, who was only two years younger than him, into the house. The intention was clear.
Later, Qin Yezhou refused to recognize his six relatives and let his father accompany his mother in the grave.
Of course, the latter is a rumor. It’s not clear whether it’s true or not. But Qin Yezhou’s father is dead. It’s also true that his stepmother and younger brother are not living well. He doesn’t care about family, friendship or life.
Su Jinzhi is not his father, nor his gay friend. Only after he could become his lover, warms his cold heart and body with love, making him feel loved, can he build a better world with him.
With the effect of “One half-hour of a night in spring is worth a thousand taels”, even if he doesn’t want to be with Qin Yezhou, it doesn’t matter. He can act in the daytime and put up a show. If Qin Yezhou is actually really handsome then Su Jinzhi wouldn’t mind having a real love affair with him – after all, he can’t revive in that world.
Yet, before he died he was still a virgin.
It’s really is such bad luck.
Su Jinzhi lived a good life. He is the only surviving pure human interplanetary diplomat on the Earth in the interstellar 3000 year. Yet, after he finished arranging that alien wearing human skin who was extremely difficult and looked exactly like Qin Ye Zhou, he fell unconscious as soon as he got home. After a check——systemic organ failure, the only incurable disease in the galaxy.
He went to the best NaSi Port Hospital of β68 Sagittarius star for treatment and invested all his money in the hospital. He managed to survive for five years without dying.
The doctor told him that since he is the remnant pure Earthian, he has no antibodies to the microorganisms on alien creatures, and his current physical condition is not enough to support his adverse reactions against vaccination. So for his safety, he should just stay in the isolation room of the hospital all his life to survive.
After entering the hospital, Su Jinzhi has been thinking about whether to make a life choice from a salted fish (T/N: useless person) to death or to go out of the isolation room and die immediately. Finally, he decided to return to the earth and take a final look at his hometown before entering the grave – after all, he had no money to maintain the operation of mechanical organs in the hospital.
But the morning before he left, the nurse came in with a bunch of flowers and told him that someone had come to visit him. Su Jinzhi immediately fell down, covering his mouth and nose——died of alien pollen allergy, unable to rescue.
——Who the fuck sent him the alien flower?!
But maybe Su Jinzhi wasn’t fated to die yet. He didn’t die. After opening his eyes in system space, he found that he was bound with a “Dearly Love Life System”.
This system has two AIs——Punisher No. 1 and Welfare Baby No. 0.
No. 0 is responsible for granting rewards and benefits after the task is completed, while No. 1 is responsible for punishing the host when the task fails and the host passively does the task in the process of the task.
No. 0 was concerned that he had just died and not only did it gave him a free benefit, but it also gave him a very simple task. In this world, he only needs to arouse the main target’s love for life and he would have successfully completed the task.
Once the mission is successful, he could get “longevity” benefit based on the life expectancy of the world and enjoy the highest treatment in the world. No matter how bad it is, he will go to the next world after he naturally dies.
If there was no back door opened to him by No. 0, then Su Jinzhi’s task in this world would be to arouse the love of 10 people and save the main target’s love for life, then he could enter the next world. If the main target of saving is not dragged back from the depression, pessimism, loneliness and any other emotional abyss, or if the 10 people did not regain their love for life, then the task will be regarded as a failure, both conditions are indispensable.
Su Jinzhi lived on Earth all his life because of his pure Earthian identity, and couldn’t see anything else except a black stone. After suffering from organ failure, he saw nothing except the pure white ward and white coat doctor. In addition, his physical condition made his life worse than an ascetic monk’s. But now, not only does he not have to die but he could also enjoy life. What reason does he have to not accept the task?
As a result, he was trapped in the system.
Qin YeZhou is really a fucking handsome but he looks exactly like the alien whom he had last served before death. Su Jin seriously suspects that he is ill because of something strange on that alien. Before he died, he thought that if he had another life, he must not be allowed to see aliens again, and no aliens in human skin!
But now he’s on the thieving system ship. If he doesn’t obediently “save” Qin Yezhou, then there’s no way No. 1 wouldn’t kill him.
No. 1 is the punisher. If he doesn’t do the task, his condition in the world will soon worsen and he will live a miserable life. Then he will get the punishment of “long illness without death” according to the life expectancy of the world, he’ll die if he’s tortured by No. 1.
In this world, he may have to wait 100 years before No.1 one decides to kill him.
No. 1’s will to kill him isn’t a day or two thing anymore; it’s a daily thing now.
And No. 1 had already dealt with him, and he’s still working on it even now.
Almost at the same time that this thought appeared in his mind, Su Jinzhi held his hand over his chest painfully and fell down.
