Chapter 225: Are We Wrong? It’s Good That We Are Wrong!
“Our estimate is wrong.”
“Impossible. My brain is connected to a computer. How could it be wrong?”
The people in the meeting room were all big bosses. Many people were taken aback upon hearing the report.
These big bosses had not come together to watch Lin Yao, as they were too idle.
This was an organization. This was the Shanghai Strategic Headquarters Against Freaks.
Shanghai had a large population and a large land area and correspondingly attracted many freaks. There would be reports of freak movements every night.
Although most of the freaks would be wiped out as quickly as possible by the armed police as well as the night guardsmen, there were always some powerful freaks that ordinary armed policemen could not deal with by themselves.
Various departments had to come together to deal with the freaks by combining everyone’s power. However, the powerful freaks would always be killing people, and there was no time for the various departments to hold meetings and discuss. Therefore, in order to increase efficiency and better protect the people, the Shanghai Strategic Headquarters Against Freaks had been set up.
The five departments, including the armed police, the military, the night guardsmen, the Abnormal Ability Department, and the municipal government, would each send a big boss to the new department to deal with incidents regarding the freaks as well as mobilize people from their department.
In fact, three kings would hold the fort there (based on a rotation system). This was the standby strength in Shanghai, one of the top few cities in China, when it was on night watch. This was also the force that could be mobilized right away.
They could be regarded as the headquarters in Shanghai that would guard the city against the freaks. It was also the last line of defense in Shanghai’s daily protection mechanism.
Since they played such a critical role when dealing with external enemies, there were naturally no weak big bosses there.
Although they were just talking casually, there were almost no mistakes in their analysis. They had dealt with thousands of abnormal incidents and had studied the freaks in depth. They also understood what a genius could achieve.
Therefore, upon hearing the external report, the big bosses were all stunned momentarily.
Soon, the serious representative of the military was the first to react.
“Contact the teams around Jing’an Park and tell them to send reinforcements as quickly as possible, as well as forward footage of the situation over there.”
The Skynet in China was very powerful. The complete mirror space could shuttle in space. It was naturally difficult to detect the movement using the Skynet, which was a combination of cameras and satellites. However, since it was broken and remained in the same spot, it would be captured by the Skynet right away, and the footage was sent to them after layers of screening.
Yes, the footage that was sent to the Shanghai Strategic Headquarters Against Freaks was filtered through more than a dozen procedures before it was allowed to be sent. This was very necessary. The freaks had various abilities. It was not uncommon for them to curse others with hypnosis through the footage. This place was said to be the main center of Shanghai’s daily defense mechanism. If it was breached by the freaks or the big bosses were hypnotized, it could even threaten Shanghai. Therefore, defending this place was a top priority.
Two of the three kings could be called out at will, but one of them had to be stationed there to ensure the safety of the headquarters.
It took some time to screen the footage, and during this time, the serious-looking soldier spoke.
“Everyone, analyze the reason for the wrong estimation now!”
It was slightly unreasonable that everyone had to be mobilized based on a random guess.
However, they were accustomed to the military’s approach and understood the necessity of doing so.
This was the real brain behind Shanghai’s daily defense mechanism. The headquarters was the department in charge of communicating orders for everyone to execute. Therefore, the orders decided by the people there were very crucial. In fact, a single word of theirs would decide the survival of the team that they sent on a mission.
Actually, it was more than that. If they made a wrong decision, the damage would not stop there. After the freaks killed people, they would lift their restrictions step by step. If they made a wrong decision, it would not only harm the team sent on the mission, but the freaks would in turn become stronger and threaten even more people.
Given that there were many implications, the personnel in the Shanghai Strategic Headquarters Against Freaks had to have powerful logical-thinking skills, and they needed to be responsible for their own judgment.
Just now, they’d made an error in their judgment. Although the final result of this error was good, no matter the outcome, the military could not tolerate any errors in their judgment.
Given that the military was very strict about wrong judgment, someone quickly gave his own analysis of the situation.
“If that information was correct, then all of us were wrong. I have analyzed the reasons for this mistake as follows: The first possibility is that the mirror space was severely damaged and its ability decreased, so it was jointly destroyed by Lin Yao and the others. The probability of this happening is 30%.
“The second possibility is that the mirror is deceiving us. The pieces of the mirror that fell into Jing’an Lake are false. There is a 1% probability of this scenario happening. The mirror does not need to do this. The best thing it can do is keep hiding.
“The third possibility is that a powerhouse or a powerful freak was being pulled into the mirror space. The two parties fought against each other, and the mirror space was damaged. The probability of this scenario happening is around 10%.
“The fourth possibility is that Cui Huo, the military men, and the armed policemen who invited Lin Yao unleashed powerful abilities and destroyed the mirror. There is a 1% probability of such a scenario happening.”
The Strategic Headquarters Against Freaks was not optimistic about the possibility that Cui Huo and the others would unleash powerful combat power. They were not underestimating these people, but they belonged to the military or the armed police, and the country had a clear record of their information and even their growth trajectories. After obtaining this information, the national weapon, supercomputer Fuxi, even listed the achievements that they could pull off afterward when calculating the abilities of the entire army.
Regardless of how the calculations were made, at this point, they did not have the ability to destroy the mirror space.
“The ninth possibility is that we’ve miscalculated Lin Yao’s intelligence. He might have unleashed strong combat power or quickly found the weakness of the mirror space so that the mirror space was revealed. The probability of this happening is 50%.”
After making various predictions, in the end, everyone looked at the first and ninth possibilities. The mirror space had been damaged in the past and they had miscalculated Lin Yao’s abilities. These were the two most reasonable guesses.
Everyone present quickly fixed their gazes on the ninth possibility again with an expectant look in their eyes.
“It’s fine if the mirror is broken. If it’s a miscalculation of Lin Yao’s abilities, this is considered a good deal for us.”
“Right now, we predicted Lin Yao is a top diamond talent. If he has abilities beyond that, he will be a king seedling.”
“There is also a certain probability that Lin Yao has found the flaws of the mirror space. Forget it, there is more than one freak in the mirror space. If he can find the shortcomings of the freaks in a short time and use them to his advantage, he will be a qualified king seedling given his intelligence and talents.”
There was more than one way to appraise a king seedling in China. One would be considered a king seedling if one had strong combat power and had a high probability of becoming a king seedling. If they had amazing abilities, such as making predictions or the strategic ability of large-scale space teleportation, they would be considered a king seedling as well. If one had extraordinary wisdom, one could also be rated as a king seedling.
After all, regardless of whether one joined the war bureau as an adviser or became a top scientist, people with extraordinary wisdom played a role as important as a king seedling.
Lin Yao might be a king seedling! The big bosses who held the fort in Shanghai were excited as well. If these people developed to unleash their power, they could be guardians of the country. A king seedling could be as powerful as an army of 100,000 soldiers.
A 100,000-soldier army referred to an army in China that was fully equipped and composed of martial artists and warlords as its main fighting force, while silver warlords or even gold warlords were the leaders of the powerful army. When it came to weaker ordinary armies, a king seedling could defeat a one-million army.
“There is a 50% probability. Lin Yao, I wish you all the best!”
The big bosses thought of all the benefits of another king seedling existing in China. They no longer cared about the embarrassment of their wrong judgment. All of them clenched their fists to cheer for Lin Yao.
Soon, the footage of Jing’an Lake appeared. After carefully observing the situation inside, the big bosses found that their expectations had come true. No, Lin Yao had done better than they had thought.
Many people even stood up in shock after watching the footage.
“Well, isn’t this what those guys showed off to us during the global legion assembly?”
“Ha ha ha. We are in luck. We are really lucky this time. If we groom him, those people will be really upset.”
