Long Yu knew that he didn't have long before doomsday starts. According to the timer, he now only has around a day and a half left to finish his preparations.
He was sitting in his car alone as he stared at his target. It was hazy outside tonight, and it was the perfect cover for him to do some secret trading.
The place that he decided to hit after the scrapyards, were car dealership stores.
Although he could secretly trade in every car parked around the district, he did not want to do so. It would be a risky move since there are unknown amount of security cameras littered across the city.
Besides, if he had unknowingly ruined the chance of a person's escape, he would feel bad.
Long Yu silently got off his car and looked around him. Confirming that there was no one nearby, he took out something which resembled a firearm from the system storage.
It was a tranquilliser gun equiped with a scope. Obviously, he intended to use it to put his target to sleep.
Since there was the risk of overdosing or under-dosing the target if he didn't adjust the dosage in the dart correctly, he just left it to the system to decide.
A tranquilliser dart appeared in his hand, and Long Yu loaded it into the gun before releasing the safety.
Holding the gun in position, he aimed it at the neck of the security guard standing in front of the booth.
The tranquilliser dart left the gun barrel and flew through the air unnoticed. Once it found its target, a thud could be heard seconds later.
"Phew, I guess its time to loot the place," he said with an excited expression.
Although it was wrong, the act of looting always feels rewarding for him. The feeling was akin to a child walking into an unattended self service candy shop.
Putting away his tranquilliser gun, Long Yu walked past the unconscious guard and entered the car dealership. Inside, there were quite a few vehicles of well known car brands.
As he walked past several cars, their trade in price appeared on the screen in front of him.
[Audi Q5 2.0 TFSI]
[Can be traded to system for 114,133 yuan]
[Mercedes-Benz E-Class L]
[Can be traded to system for 218,400 yuan]
[Brilliance-BMW Zinoro 60H]
[Can be traded to system for 156,500 yuan]
As usual, the trade in price determined by the system for the vehicles were half the original price. Long Yu did not mind it since he was already used to the system's rule.
After looking around for a bit, he started to get to work. Every car that he passed by would disappear into thin air, it was a bizarre sight indeed.
Half an hour passed, and Long Yu was already done sweeping the place clean. Before he left, he did not forget to wipe the recordings of all the security cameras within the premise.
Looking at the money that he just 'earned' from the place, he felt that it was a decent gain.
Since there was still time, Long Yu continued to pay a visit to multiple car dealership stores in the city.
There were a few close encounters during his raids, but he managed to deal with them in the end.
When Long Yu arrived back at the hotel, it was already past midnight. Entering the room, he saw that Xixi was asleep on the sofa again.
He felt a bit guilty in his heart, as he had to leave her to eat her own dinner at the hotel almost every night.
Even so, Long Yu had no choice but to do so. He needed to gain the necessary strength, for him to protect the both of them when doomsday arrives.
Seeing that Xixi already changed into her pyjamas, he just carried her and tucked her in bed.
After that, he went to the bathroom for a long silent bath, as usual. Long Yu had been doing this almost every night, as it helps him to relax his mind and body.
Once he was done bathing, he wiped himself and put on his boxers. He did not put on the rest of his clothes since he was prepared to make the exchange.
That is right, Long Yu had surprisingly accumulated enough money tonight, for him to exchange for the item that he wanted.
As he looked at the amount of currency he has on the holographic screen, he could not help but sigh.
This was the amount that was shown on the screen. It is the highest amount of money that he has earned since getting the system.
Long Yu was lucky as he encountered a few special models of vehicles in a couple dealership stores. Their trade in price were unexpectedly high, boosting his haul by a lot.
Clearing his mind, Long Yu operated the system and brought up the item that he wanted.
[Nano-machine Exoskeleton Armor] (Left lower limb)
[An exoskeleton armor made of nano-machines. Grants the area covered with unprecedented strength and defence.
Armor can be materialised at will. Nano-machines are hidden inside the hollows of the user's bones when unactivated]
[Exchange Price: 100,000,000 yuan]
Long Yu willed the system to accept the exchange with his mind. Slowly, a futuristic styled syringe containing thick silver liquid, materialised in front of him.
He grabbed the hovering syringe with his hand and examined it carefully. If he didn't know better, he would have taken the content inside as liquid mercury.
Taking a deep breath, Long Yu gritted his teeth and plunged the syringe into his left thigh, as instructed by the system.
