茶水间里面,正在冲泡着即食麦片的林峰sir似想着什么,魂游太虚的模样。

In the pantry, Lin Fengsir, who was brewing instant cereal, seemed to be thinking about something, and looked like he was wandering too much.

好一会儿,林峰sir才叹了口气,将杯子端到了白发小女孩的面前。

After a while, Lin Fengsir sighed and brought the cup to the little white-haired girl.

“吃吧,吃完我们就走了。”林峰自问也不能向一个什么都不知道,疑似有心理疾病,可能是因为被家暴所以才逃出来的小女孩发火啊?

“Let’s eat, we’ll leave after eating.” Lin Feng asked himself, he couldn’t get angry with a little girl who didn’t know anything and was suspected of having a mental illness, maybe because of domestic violence.

他只能生闷气:怎么就赖上他了呢……

He could only be sulking: why did he depend on him…

他感觉自己也不像是主角啊,这种剧情为什么还会在自己的身上出现……像是偶像那样的,才会有这种待遇的吧?

He doesn’t feel like he’s the protagonist, so why does this kind of plot still appear on his body… If he’s like an idol, he’s treated like this, right?

……仔细看的话,倒是挺可爱的。

…If you look closely, it’s quite cute.

此时,看着小女孩双捧着热腾腾的杯子,喝着里面的牛奶麦片,林峰笑了笑道:“好喝吗?”

At this time, watching the little girl holding the hot mug and drinking the milk cereal inside, Lin Feng smiled and said, “Is it delicious?”

她也没有给林峰什么回应,不过却也喝了不少。

She didn’t respond to Lin Feng either, but she drank a lot.

林峰此时心一动道:“你说你吧,一直都不说话,问你名字都不知道……我都不知道怎么喊你好了。看你这一头白发的,要不这样吧,我暂时叫白……白……你看白素这个名字如何?”

Lin Feng’s heart moved at this time: “Tell me about you, you haven’t spoken all the time, I don’t even know your name… I don’t even know how to call you alright. Look at your white hair, how about this? Well, my name is Bai… Bai… What do you think of the name Bai Su?”

白毛小萝莉好奇地抬起了眼来,眼睛儿一眨不眨地看着林峰sir。

Little white-haired loli raised her eyes curiously and looked at Sir Lin Feng without blinking.

“不喜欢吗?”林峰只好道:“那换别的名字就好了……要不,你告诉我,你叫什么名字吧?”

“Don’t you like it?” Lin Feng had no choice but to say, “Then just change your name… Otherwise, tell me, what’s your name?”

“白…素…”

“white… plain…”

“你会说话了……哦不,你终于肯说话了!”林峰顿时激动的站起了身来,双按住了小女孩的肩膀,“天啊!总算开口了!来,快告诉我,你的父母呢?你是怎么自己一个人跑道大街上的?你是不是在家里受到不好的对待了?”

“You can talk… oh no, you are finally willing to talk!” Lin Feng stood up agitatedly and held the little girl’s shoulders with both hands, “Oh my God! I finally spoke! Come on, hurry up. Tell me, where are your parents? How did you walk down the street by yourself? Did you get treated badly at home?”

只是白毛小萝莉却再一次沉默不语,不论林峰sir问了多少个问题。

It’s just the little white-haired loli who was silent again, no matter how many questions Lin Fengsir asked.

就在这个时候。

At this time.

“看来她是因为喜欢这个名字。”

“It appears she likes the name.”

林峰听到了声音,下意识地看向了茶水间的门口处,却见小洛sir走来,“偶像!”

Lin Feng heard the voice and looked at the door of the tea room subconsciously, but saw Xiao Luo sir coming, “Idol!”

“她应该比较喜欢你给她改的名字。”小洛sir随意一笑,却是看向了那白毛小萝莉,“白素,这个名字不错……你喜欢的,对吗。”

“She should prefer the name you changed her.” Xiao Luo smiled casually, but looked at the white-haired little loli, “Bai Su, this name is good…you like it, right.” /

只见白毛小萝莉此时轻轻地点了点头。

I saw the white-haired little loli nodded lightly at this time.

林峰不禁眨了眨眼睛,觉得这偶像是开挂了吧……这小女孩他都带着两天了,不管问她什么,都不会有太多的反应——很多时候,都只能靠猜的。

Lin Feng couldn’t help blinking his eyes, thinking that this idol is a hang up… He has been carrying this little girl for two days, no matter what she asks, there will not be much response – many times, she Can only guess.

“偶像,感觉你好像对小女孩很有办法欸,要不……”林峰sir下意识说道。

“Idol, I feel like you are very good at dealing with little girls, otherwise…” Lin Fengsir said subconsciously.

小洛sir却打断道:“她喜欢你改的名字,这不已经是一个很好的开始了吗……加油,她是喜欢你的。”

Xiao Luo sir interrupted: “She likes the name you changed, isn’t this a good start… Come on, she likes you.”

林峰觉得自己差点儿就信了。

Lin Feng felt that he almost believed it.

他下意识地看向了白毛小萝莉,却见小萝莉此时也正好看向了自己,水灵灵的眼睛仿佛想要诉说着什么似的,他下意识地就看得呆住了。

He looked at the white-haired little loli subconsciously, but saw that the little loli was also looking at him at this time, and Shui Lingling’s eyes seemed to want to tell something, and he was stunned subconsciously.

不好!

Not good!

林峰顿时深呼吸了一口气,战术后仰——林峰啊,你是堂堂火云执法者,不是怪哥哥,不能觉醒这种癖好!

Lin Feng took a deep breath and leaned back tactically – Lin Feng, you are the law enforcement officer of the dignified fire cloud, not a strange brother, you can’t awaken this hobby!

“偶像,我……偶像?”

“Idol, I… idol?”

小洛sir已经不见了。

Xiao Luo sir is gone.

至于是什么时候走的,林峰居然没有丝毫的感觉,“偶像不愧是偶像啊,走路都不带声音的,嗯……要好好学学!”

As for when he left, Lin Feng actually didn’t have the slightest feeling, “Idols are worthy of being idols, they don’t make a sound when they walk, um… I have to study hard!”

忽然,白毛小萝莉扯了扯林峰的衣袖,然后将已经喝光了的杯子给拎了起来。

Suddenly, the little white-haired Lolita tugged at Lin Feng’s sleeve, and then picked up the glass that had been drained.

“还想吃?”林峰眨了眨眼睛,莞尔一笑,他摸了摸这孩子的脑袋,“既然这样,我暂时就喊你白素吧?”

“Do you still want to eat?” Lin Feng blinked and smiled. He touched the child’s head, “Since this is the case, shall I call you Bai Su for the time being?”

白毛小萝莉…白素小萝莉这次却微微地点了点头。

Little White-haired Lolita… Little Lolita Baisu nodded slightly this time.

吃完第二杯的即食麦片之后,林峰就带着白素,跑道楼下的人口失踪部门那里拿了些资料之后,便离开了总局。

After eating the second cup of instant oatmeal, Lin Feng took Bai Su and left the General Administration after collecting some information from the missing persons department downstairs of the runway.

马sir20在休假之前,给这货批了天的休假,让他能够好好地处理好私人事情——其实马sir20还给了个建议,将这孩子送去福利院会更好。

Sir20 gave this guy a day off before going on vacation, so that he could take care of his personal affairs – in fact, sir20 gave him a suggestion that it would be better to send the child to an orphanage.

这天看能不能找到白素的亲人之类了吧……实在找不到,也只能按照马sir20的意思,将白素暂时安置到附近的福利院了。

Let’s see if I can find Bai Su’s relatives and the like… I can’t find it, so I can only temporarily place Bai Su in a nearby orphanage according to Ma sir20’s instructions.

……

……

“个月的长假?”

“A month’s vacation?”

马sir20的办公室里,刚刚回到了科室的小洛sir就被召了进去了。

In Sir20’s office, Xiao Luo, who had just returned to the department, was called in.

“嗯,这些年积了不少的假期,再不用掉就得销掉了。”马sir20此时一边收拾着桌子,一边很是随意地道:“个月假期,带双薪,可以爽很久……不用想念我,我会明信片回来的。”

“Well, I have accumulated a lot of vacations over the years, and if I don’t use them, I have to sell them.” At this time, while packing the table, Ma sir20 said casually: “Monthly vacations, with double pay, can be cool. It’s been a long time…don’t miss me, I’ll be back with a postcard.”

小洛sir感觉有些突然了,但并没有细问下去。

Xiao Luo sir felt a little abrupt, but did not ask in detail.

“工作方面的事情我已经安排好了。”马sir20接着又道:“不过你也不用担心什么,反正你马上就要去探索遗迹了,没准等我销假回来了,你都还没有从遗迹出来呢。这种遗迹探索的活动,少说也要一年半载的。”

“I have already arranged the work.” Ma sir20 continued: “But you don’t have to worry about anything, anyway, you are going to explore the ruins soon, maybe when I come back from vacation, you haven’t From the ruins. This kind of activity to explore the ruins will take a year and a half at least.”

“要这么长吗。”小洛sir忽然问道。

“Is it going to be this long?” Xiao Luo sir suddenly asked.

亲,本章未完,还有下一页哦^0^“是的吧?”马sir20想了想道:“反正我也只是听说的,遗迹长什么样,我也没有见过。一般来说,如果是开发度已经很高的遗迹,进出的时间应该不长。但如果是开荒探索的话,就不好说了,毕竟谁也不知道遗迹里面有什么东西。当然,也有两天就打穿的遗迹……不过大概也找不到什么好东西?总之,万事小心,莫要强出头……当然,有人欺负头上了,就打他丫的,打不过就想办法摇人!”

Dear, this chapter is not over, there is another page ^0^ “Yes?” Ma sir20 thought for a while and said, “I just heard about it anyway, I have never seen what the ruins look like. Generally speaking, if it is a relic with a high degree of development, the time to enter and exit should not be long. But if it is a wasteland exploration, it is hard to say, after all, no one knows what is in the relic. Of course, there are also two days. The ruins that have been penetrated… but I probably can’t find anything good? In short, be careful in everything, don’t try to be strong… Of course, if someone bullies the head, you will beat him, and if you can’t beat it, you will find a way to shake people! “

这话就很马sir20了,小洛sir不禁笑了笑,“那么,我也祝你一路顺服,马叔叔。”

These words are very irritating, Xiao Luo Sir can’t help but smile, “Then, I also wish you obedience all the way, Uncle Ma.”

“我走啦!不要太想我哟!”

“I’m leaving! Don’t miss me too much!”

小洛sir没有回头去看,只是掌翻了翻,一个折成了角状的小小平安符已经跃然掌。

Xiao Luosir didn’t look back, but turned his palm over, and a small peace talisman folded into a corner was already in his palm.

他拿着平安符沉默了半响,似乎又有了将它收回去的打算般,忽然握了起来。

He held the safety talisman in silence for a while, as if he was planning to take it back, he suddenly held it.

“请不要,将我这点仅存的……也拿走。”

“Please don’t, take what’s left of me…”

握紧的掌徐徐张开,掌心的平安符一霎间便已经消失不见……下一个瞬间,小小的平安符已经落入了马sir20的口袋之。

The clenched palm slowly opened, and the peace talisman in the palm disappeared in an instant… The next moment, the small peace talisman had already fallen into the pocket of the horse sir20.

……

……

“请…请假?你又请什么假?!”

“Please… leave? What leave are you asking for?!”

总局长的办公室里,刘秀一脸不爽——不爽地看着小洛sir,马sir20才刚刚强拿了个月的大假,还tm的是双薪的!

In the office of the director general, Liu Xiu looked unhappy-looking at Xiao Luo sir, Ma sir 20 had just taken a month’s vacation, and he was paid double salary!

这会儿,总局里唯一的五阶超阶也要请假!

At this moment, the only fifth-order super-order in the general bureau is also asking for leave!

火云总局怎能没有人镇场子!

How can there be no one in the Fire Cloud General Administration!

“不批!”刘秀哼哼道:“年轻人!不要总想着休息,要钟情工作!热爱工作!积极加班!”

“No approval!” Liu Xiu hummed: “Young people! Don’t always think about rest, but love work! Love work! Actively work overtime!”

“明日,我答应了铁市长要去探索新遗迹。”

“Tomorrow, I promised Mayor Iron to explore new ruins.”

“哦,那没事了,请假单给你,日期自己填。”刘秀此时拉开了抽屉,取出了一张赞新的请假条来,眼巴巴地问道:“双薪够吗,薪其实也是可以商量商量的……”

“Oh, that’s all right, I’ll give you the leave request form and fill in the date yourself.” Liu Xiu opened the drawer at this time, took out a new leave request form, and asked eagerly, “Is the double salary enough? It’s also negotiable…”

阿巴阿巴。

Aba Aba.

心城区,第一医院……楼顶之上。

Xincheng District, the First Hospital… on the roof.

水塔下,大刘独自地抽着烟……指,在不断地划着的屏幕,都是曾经自己与未婚妻的合影。

Under the water tower, Da Liu was smoking a cigarette alone… Pointing out, the screen that was constantly being drawn was a group photo of himself and his fiancee.

忽然,左传来了一股灼热的感觉。

Suddenly, there was a burning sensation from the left.

大刘不禁皱了皱眉头……他抬起了头来,只见楼顶的护栏上,不知何时已经坐着了一名给人以十足颓废感的男子。

Da Liu couldn’t help frowning… He raised his head and saw a man with a decadent feeling sitting on the guardrail on the roof.

很年轻,像是十八九岁的模样,烟熏妆还有唇环……像极了那些被他抓过了不少的不良混混,但左里持续传来的灼热感,却让大刘知道,事情并不简单。

Very young, like eighteen or nineteen years old, with smoky makeup and lip rings… She looks like those bad gangsters who have been caught a lot by him, but the burning sensation that continues to come from Zuoli, but Let Da Liu know that things are not easy.

他沉默半响,才将收好,缓缓站了起来,“你…就是【噬龙虱】的宿主?”

He was silent for a while, then put it away and stood up slowly, “You…is the host of [Dragon Eater]?”

“听小姐说,你让【黑龙王的爪】进化了。”那颓废青年此时眯着眼笑道:“不知道进化的【黑龙王】……会是什么味道的。”

“Listen to Miss, you let the [Black Dragon King’s Claw] evolve.” The decadent young man squinted and smiled and said, “I don’t know what the evolved [Black Dragon King]… would taste like.”

大刘没有说话,只是那垂落的左上,冷不丁地释放出了一抹白炽的光辉。

Da Liu didn’t speak, but the hanging upper left suddenly released a touch of incandescent brilliance.

不料这颓废的青年却连忙摆了摆道:“安啦安啦,我这次不是来找你打架的……毕竟我也不能冒着被小姐追杀到天涯海角的风险,来做让她讨厌的事情呐。”

Unexpectedly, the decadent young man hurriedly put on a pose and said, “An Laan, I didn’t come to fight with you this time… After all, I can’t take the risk of being chased to the ends of the earth by the young lady, and come to make a mess. Something she hates.”

大刘沉默不语,左上的光甲也没有散去。

Da Liu was silent, and the light armor on the upper left did not disperse.

那颓废青年道:“小姐要见你,我不过是来带个话而已……另外,我马上就会离开这里了。”

The decadent young man said: “Miss wants to see you, I’m just here to tell you… Besides, I’ll be leaving here soon.”

说着,那青年自栏杆上轻轻地跳了出来。

Speaking, the young man jumped out gently from the railing.

他的身体瞬间消失不见,但下一刻却已经轻盈地出现在了大刘的面前。

His body disappeared instantly, but the next moment he appeared lightly in front of Da Liu.

大刘只感觉一股极为可怕的气瞬间锁定了自己,让他动弹不得……这颓废青年,竟是各方面都要完全地压制他!

Da Liu only felt that an extremely terrifying aura locked him in an instant, making him unable to move… This decadent young man had to completely suppress him in every way!

只见颓废青年,此时将大刘的左缓缓捧起,眯着眼道:“不过,下一次见面的时候,我可能会咬你一口,总是要……先尝尝味道的。”

I saw the decadent young man. At this time, he slowly picked up Da Liu’s left and squinted: “However, the next time we meet, I may bite you, and I always have to… taste it first. .”

吸溜——!

Suck it—!

颓废青年猛然在大刘的左光甲上,舔了一口。

The decadent youth suddenly licked on Da Liu’s left light armor.

大刘双眼瞳孔瞬间收缩,一股苍凉的咆哮之声隐约在空气之震动……只见【光龙王的甲】此时猛然爆发出耀眼的光辉。

Da Liu’s eyes and pupils shrank instantly, and a desolate roar faintly shook in the air… I saw [Light Dragon King’s Armor] suddenly burst into a dazzling brilliance.

大刘此时能动了。

Da Liu can move now.

但那颓废的青年却一下子向后跃走,“再见。”

But the decadent youth suddenly jumped back, “Goodbye.”

哼——!

Humph—!

大刘冷哼一声,一拳轰出,那瞬间爆发出了可怕威力的拳头直接打在了颓废青年的身上——然而在这瞬间,颓废青年的身体竟是突然散开。

Da Liu snorted coldly and threw a punch, and the fist that burst out with terrifying power directly hit the decadent youth – but at this moment, the decadent youth’s body suddenly spread out.

只见颓废青年的身体此时竟是化作了万万千千细小的虫子,一下子就散在了空气之……随后,这些小虫子又一次聚合,然后以极快的速度,飘向了远方。

I saw that the body of the decadent youth turned into thousands of tiny bugs at this time, and suddenly dispersed in the air… Then, these small bugs gathered again, and then floated at a very fast speed. to the distance.

大刘没有追上,直到看不见这一抹黑影,才皱了皱眉头,随后转身而去……这是他这段时间以来,第一次走出了医院。

Da Liu didn’t catch up. He frowned until he couldn’t see the dark shadow, then turned and walked away… This is the first time he has walked out of the hospital in this period of time.

……

……

……

……

央森林公园……【小森林】项目。

The Central Forest Park… [Small Forest] project.

大坑底部的研究所营地深处……简易的帐篷之,当宋樱20醒来的时候,只感觉头痛欲裂,还有就是身子有些不舒服。

In the depths of the research institute camp at the bottom of the big pit… In a simple tent, when Song Ying 20 woke up, she only felt a splitting headache, and her body was a little uncomfortable.

睡在了干硬的地上一整晚,显然是不会好受的……她甚至有些记不清楚,自

Sleep on the hard and dry floor all night, obviously it won’t feel good… She can’t even remember, since

亲,本章未完,还有下一页哦^0^己为什么会睡在了地上。

Dear, this chapter is not over, there is another page ^0^ Why did I fall asleep on the ground.

疑惑之间,宋樱20感觉自己昨晚好又做梦了——但这并不是与预知梦,而是另外一种。

Between the doubts, Song Ying 20 felt that she had a good dream again last night – but this is not related to precognition dreams, but another kind.

这段时间里,一只困扰着她的,其实有两种梦境。

During this period of time, there were actually two dreams that bothered her.

其之一就是已经被她证实过的,能够预知未来某些片段的预知梦——还有另外一种,她非她,她是她,但却生活在另外一个世界的梦。

One of them is the precognition dream that has been confirmed by her and can predict certain fragments of the future – there is another kind of dream, she is not her, she is her, but lives in another world.

预知梦她能够证实,但是第二种梦就如同无根浮萍一样,就算她如何想要验证,都找不到方法——她上哪儿去找到梦里面另外一个自己的世界?

She can confirm the precognition dream, but the second kind of dream is like rootless duckweed, no matter how she tries to verify it, she can’t find a way – where will she find another world of her own in the dream?

“或许可以通过李博士的入梦神通……”宋樱20此时理智地思考道:“不过让别人进入我的梦境太危险,我需要一些能够帮自己在梦也能维持清醒的功法……”

“Perhaps I can use Dr. Li’s magical power to enter a dream…” Song Ying20 thought rationally at this time: “But it’s too dangerous to let others into my dreams, I need some skills that can help me stay awake even in my dreams. Law…”

“宋小姐!你醒了吗?宋小姐!”

“Miss Song! Are you awake? Miss Song!”

帐篷外忽然传来了呼喊的声音,是【平天】集团的守卫。

Suddenly there was a shout from outside the tent, it was the guard of the [Pingtian] group.

宋樱20很快便站起了身来,然后整理好有些乱的衣服……她冷冷清清地走出,淡然道:“有什么事情?”

Song Ying 20 quickly stood up, and then sorted out some messy clothes… She walked out coldly and said indifferently: “What’s the matter?”

只听见那守卫此时道:“是这样的,宋小姐,外边来了几个年轻人,说是认识你的……所以想要请你过去一下。”

I only heard the guard say at this time: “That’s it, Miss Song, a few young people came outside and said they knew you… So I want to invite you over.”

“认识我的?”

“Know me?”

她不禁皱了皱眉头。

She frowned.

……

……

营地外,只见数十米全副武装的守卫,此时正将男一女四名年轻人给团团围住——但面对着全副武装的守卫,四名年轻人却似并不在意。

Outside the camp, I saw dozens of meters of heavily armed guards. At this time, four young men, one woman, and four young men were surrounded by a group—but facing the heavily armed guards, the four young men did not seem to be care.

其一人甚至还蹲在了地上,看着地上爬过的蚂蚁。

One of them even squatted on the ground, watching the ants crawling on the ground.

当宋樱20到来时候,众守卫才让开了路来,“宋小姐,就是他们四个了。”

When Song Ying 20 arrived, the guards stepped aside, “Miss Song, that’s all four of them.”

宋樱20打量了过去,首先便看见了一名紫衣的年轻人,她不禁皱了皱眉头,“第二小五,你为什么会在这里,还有你们个也是。”

Song Ying 20 looked over and first saw a young man in purple. She couldn’t help frowning, “Second Little Five, why are you here, and you too.”

“宋老师!”紫衣年轻人走前一步,轻笑道:“听闻你在这里,学生几个特来这里拜见的……另外,我等四人,也会参与明日的遗迹探索。”

“Teacher Song!” The young man in Ziyi took a step forward and chuckled, “I heard that you are here, and a few of the students have come here to pay their respects… In addition, the four of us will also participate in the exploration of the ruins tomorrow. “

宋樱20沉默不语。

Song Ying 20 was silent.

【将军】维嘉不在这里,守卫们也不敢乱做主意,只好看向了宋樱20,“宋小姐,这几个人?”

[General] Wei Jia is not here, and the guards don’t dare to make any decisions, so they have to look at Song Ying 20, “Miss Song, how many people are these?”

“他们是我的学生~IndoMTL.com~宋樱20想了想道:“其实也不算是,他们只是上过我的课,但也确实是稷下学宫的学生。他们要进入遗迹,应该是牛大广在【昆仑】拍卖的那批名额……身份没有问题。”

“They are my students~IndoMTL.com~ Song Ying20 thought for a while and said, “Actually not really, they just took my class, but they are indeed Jixia Academy’s students. If they want to enter the ruins, it should be the batch of places that Niu Daguang auctioned in [Kunlun]… There is no problem with their identity. “

“既然宋小姐担保,那没事了。”守卫头头点点头,随后一挥道:“放行!”

“Since Miss Song promised, it’s all right.” The guard nodded his head, then waved: “Let go!”

“请等一下。”宋樱20却冷不丁道:“我只是说他们是学宫学生的身份没有问题而已,并没有说要给他们做担保。放行是你的决定,但我觉得过于草率。”

“Please wait a moment.” Song Ying 20 said coldly: “I just said that there is no problem with their status as academy students, and I didn’t say that I would vouch for them. It is your decision to let go, but I think it is too much. Sloppy.”

“……”守卫头头张了张口,最终还是摇摇头,“放行!”

“…” The guard opened his mouth, and finally shook his head, “Let go!”

这位宋小姐虽然很美,身材也超级正……但确实残念系,这也是宋小姐到来研究营地,一直也没有人搭讪的原因。

Although this Miss Song is very beautiful and her figure is super straight… but she is really stubborn. This is why Miss Song came to the research camp and no one has ever approached her.

打工已经很累了,为什么还要找个冰冰冷冷不知情的女人苦了自己……是大保健不好玩了,还是兼职小姐姐不温柔了?

I’m tired of working part-time, so why do I have to find a cold and ignorant woman to suffer myself… Is it because the health care is not fun, or the part-time lady is not gentle?

明明568灵钞就能解决问题啊!

Clearly 568 spirit notes can solve the problem!

亲,本章已完,祝您阅读愉快!^0^
