[Mecha] Heterogeneous Alliance - Chapter 80
The long daylight on the edge of the solar system is shining, and the Glanz Center venue in Triton Satellite City opens the ceiling, which makes it transparent to the inside and out without lighting.
This is a magnificent building that can shock people’s minds just by virtue of its size. The gray square column stands tall, propping up the periphery of the classical oval venue. The venue was so huge that people standing at one end of the venue could not see the text on the ad banner on the opposite side.
Holographic projections with dark blue backgrounds can be seen everywhere. The portraits of Linden and Tan Lang are intertwined with the influence of Emperor soldiers and mobile armor, and exciting music is played over and over again. Below the silver banner dancing without wind, the crowd is constantly passing through the particle gear sculpture at the main entrance, entering the venue in an orderly manner: emperor soldiers, officers, ordinary clerks, repair shop workers, children who are ignorant of holding their sister… …
There was no one on the rostrum on the north side of the venue, only a row of Black Hawk soldiers in black were waiting.
Behind the high platform is a bulletproof glass curtain wall, which can also serve as a projection screen. Behind the wall, people’s shadows are faintly visible shaking, and it is clear that the final preparations are being made for the upcoming major event.
“Sir, you have internal communication.”
Chen Dongrong nodded calmly, put on the special communication device, and after listening for a moment, his long, white eyebrows were slightly furrowed. He quickly removed the communication device, put it in the hands of the waiter, and then greeted the group of people who passed by silently: “General Su.”
The officer guarding aside slightly turned sideways and gave up a position for the two big men to talk, but did not intend to leave.
Chen Dongrong took no surprises at this guarded formation, and only confirmed in a low voice: “Your speech is ready?”
Su Zongzheng saw white in his hair, and his handsome eyebrows were unspeakably old and tired. He stared at Chen Dongrong for a moment, and said in a cool tone: “I have always believed in words.”
“Thank you for your cooperation.” Chen Dongrong smiled slightly, faintly looking at him, “Accordingly, I will keep my promise and I won’t be too embarrassed when everything is over.”
Su Zongzheng’s eyes flashed, showing a yin-cool and mocking smile, and his words were sharp: “That said… you don’t seem to be going to let General Ye’s daughter go? That’s not good, right.”
“You misunderstood, how could I embarrass Miss Ye?” His voice was smiling, but Chen Dongrong’s eyes were not warm. “She just hasn’t understood her responsibilities and General Ye’s will.”
Hearing Ye Pingdao’s name, Su Zongzheng accepted the smirk from just now, turned his head and left.
“That’s right, you are the only four marshals of the Ten Years War…” Chen Dongrong stabbed him again, “but you and the other three have not gotten so close, and you are the latest to join the Progressive Party.”
Su Zongzheng’s expression was flat, and he gently wiped a note on the brow bone: “I joined because I believed that the Progressive Party can solve problems that other parties can’t solve.”
“So now?” Chen Dongrong stared at him closely.
The non-commissioned officers around the two men lowered their eyebrows, and did not dare to show up.
Su Zong’s face was solemn and solemn, and he suddenly smiled, conceited but also graceful, and has the temperament of his youth: “What are you talking about?”
Without waiting for the other party’s reaction, he walked away with Fang Bu.
Chen Dongrong squinted at the direction Su Zongzheng was leaving, then raised his head to straighten his expression, and asked the attendant lightly: “What time is it?”
There is a clock projection on the wall in front of him, but the waiter replied stubbornly: “Report sir, the current time in zone 5 is 9:53 am.”
There are still seven minutes before the start of the mobilization meeting for all the citizens of the Empire to watch.
“Sir, you have received a communication request, the source is unknown…”
Chen Dongrong raised his eyebrows: “Give it to me.”
Communication is connected.
“Major General Chen, good morning.”
Chen Dongrong pressed the eyebrow peak with a calm voice: “Good morning, Miss Ye.”
“It’s a great honor to send three teams of flying falcons to attack me. But unfortunately, you can’t stop me.” Si Fei smiled and spoke slowly, which was very different from his previous attitude, which even made Chen Dongrong unable to help. Think of another person.
The white-haired old man replied with restraint: “I don’t want to be an enemy of you. Any misunderstanding can be explained clearly. It would be great if we can clear up our suspicions before today’s mobilization meeting.”
Si Fei seemed to chuckle: “Then let’s negotiate terms.”
“Please speak.” Chen Dongrong walked to a quiet corner of the lounge, tapping slowly on the back of the armchair in front of him.
“The leader is seriously ill and cannot be governed. I understand you when you are in danger. I am not interested in becoming a new leader. You can rest assured. But after you become an interim leader, there are only two things I want you to do,” Si Fei paused. In order to increase the weight of the second half sentence, “Stop the human genetic screening program and abolish the civil hierarchy.”
Chen Dongrong’s eyebrows jumped, and he almost refused directly: “Do you know what you are talking about?”
“I am sane, and this request is entirely out of my own will.”
“Then do you understand that this is a betrayal of your father?”
This time, Si Fei did not answer immediately.
Chen Dongrong’s expression moved.
She only sighed slightly: “It’s almost a little bit, I won’t delay you, goodbye.”
The clock on the wall was two minutes away from the hour.
“Sir?” The waiter reminded softly at the door.
Looking at the severed communication interface, Chen Dongrong frowned and walked out quickly. At the same time, he said: “Check the source and specific coordinates of the communication just now. If you find it, send the Black Hawk and Flying Falcon.” After a pause, he lowered his tone: “Catch it.” If not…”
The attendant low claimed yes, and quickly turned and left.
The lights outside the glass curtain wall are already on, and the music is gradually lowered, and the audience is quiet.
The particle gear icon flashes instantly in front of every row of seats and on every projection screen.
“All stand up!” The host in military uniform took the lead, “Long live the empire! Long live progress! Long live mankind! Long live glory!”
“Long live the empire! Long live progress! Long live mankind! Long live glory!”
The voices of the crowd gathered in one place, and they read sonorous words together, like the waves hitting the shore, deafening and frightening, enough to make people with uncertain minds tremble with fear.
This is an oath and a warning to oneself, a convention and a ritual. In the repetition day after day, the sixteen characters have a rich meaning beyond the literal. Just like the so-called spells in the legends of the old generations, they firmly grasp the hearts of everyone present, and they will take effect once they are spoken.
This is the will of the vast majority of people, urging and forcing any uncoordinated things to surrender and merge into the one that is extremely correct and always correct.
Just looking at such a scene, fear and awe will arise spontaneously.
Si Fei closed her eyes, and she could easily imagine the atmosphere in the venue. Because she was also one of them. In another future, she followed this path to the end.
Su Suye increased the intensity of her fingers clasping her fingers, her face stretched tight as she watched the projection.
He is not more relaxed than her, but the reasons are different. He glanced sideways and bent his eyes towards Si Fei: “I hated this kind of gathering since I was a kid, and I didn’t understand why until I was a teenager. The collective tyranny that was played by a handful of people in applause| Respectable… This is the power of the majority.”
His voice was not soft, and Chen Miaomiao turned his head when he heard the words.
Su Suye turned to shrug her shoulders: “But it’s a pity that I’ve always been a stranger.”
Chen Miaomiao raised his eyebrows, looked around, and sneered: “Why do you sound strange and regretful? I…does not meet the expectations of my parents. When my peers are thinking about how to find a first-class citizen to marry, I just want to open the armor. That’s a weird person.”
As she said, she glanced at Yang Mian and Si Fei, then smiled and shook her head: “You two… can’t be counted as the overwhelming majority.”
There was a person sitting in front of the screen where the data was flying, and he turned his head hippiely after hearing the sound: “Ms. Chen brought me here for a truth-telling conference? I don’t fit into this matter, but I have a lot of experience, such as…”
It was Shi Mingxiu impressively.
Chen Miaomiao gave him a white look: “Go to your job.”
At the same time, each phalanx began to enter the Triton venue for review. The camera swept across the rostrum, missing a few familiar faces, but also a lot of new faces.
Si Feiyuguang glanced at him, confronted Tian Jue who was sitting diagonally behind him, and simply turned his head back: “I didn’t expect you to stay.”
With reason and emotion, he has no reason to participate in this crazy operation.
Tian Jue’s voice was low: “The attacked factory…there is the chip factory in my hometown. I want to avenge my father.”
Si Fei was taken aback, and then remembered that Yang Mian mentioned this: the third-class citizen workers in this factory were instigated by the rebels to introduce industrial waste water into drinking water sources, causing huge casualties. The rebels took this to looting key chip materials.
Nodded, she felt that nothing more was unnecessary, so she looked at the screen again.
A general from the front line is introducing the battle situation on the front line:
“Just now, the edge of the department again detected abnormal high-energy fluctuations. The Oorts’ ambitions are clear, and their invasion will not stop there. Similarly, we will fight to the last drop of blood and will never allow it. The homeland has been infringed by half! All will come together, at this moment…”
Su Suye couldn’t bear this kind of speech the most, so she bit her ears with Si Fei: “So righteous and awe-inspiring…it seems like we have become villains who are digging walls.”
Si Fei squinted at him: “Do you still care about this kind of thing?”
The two of them looked at each other and saw anxiety in each other’s eyes.
Can they really influence the overall situation just by relying on them? Can you really organize Chen Dongrong and the worst result?
Si Fei took a breath: “In the worst case, it’s death.”
Su Suye laughed helplessly: “Feifei, what you said is really soothing…” After a pause, he touched the tip of his nose with her, and corrected with a serious face: “It should be said that, at least we can die together. “
“Please pay attention to the two people over there who don’t care about the mood of singles. The next speaker is Major General Chen Dongrong.” Shi Mingxiu turned his head back with his cheeks in his hands.
Su Su stood up lazily at night: “It’s time to go to work.”
Si Fei smiled as he watched Chen Dongrong walking up the high platform on the screen. The time was up.
The huge clock projection in the venue points to eleven o’clock in zone 5.
The crowd was silent, and everyone was waiting for the old man on the high platform to speak.
Chen Dongrong looked around, smiled almost invisibly, and began to speak vigorously and slowly after the minute hand had passed one square:
“Citizens of the Empire, within just a minute, the Falcons on the frontline fought another desperate battle. 60 seconds is short, but in this short 60 seconds, there are young lives for the empire. , For the sake of mankind, for progress and glory and heroic sacrifice. As the commander-in-chief of the Second Army, I only allow me to use the 60 seconds of silence just now to pay tribute to all ordinary and extraordinary martyrs who fought bravely on the front line; All the ordinary people who are still fighting with the Oorts, and all the ordinary people in the rear who have supported this cross-century battle, express my deepest gratitude.”
The silence was instantly broken by applause.
“Now that the empire and mankind have reached a stormy dark hour, our most beloved leader, the backbone of this progressive movement, was overworked and had to enter the intensive care unit for treatment last night.”
The camera timely swept across an old lady with a face full of consternation, and then tears in her eyes.
Chen Dongrong’s expression is heavy: “After discussion, I will temporarily take over my duties and try to ensure that all institutions operate as usual. I am in a high position, deeply ashamed, and even more frightened. But I will do my best–“
All the screens and holographic projections in the venue flickered uncomfortably, and then the images switched.
Chen Dongrong looked up at the large screen on the opposite side, his face suddenly changed.
Si Fei smiled gently at the camera: “All of you who have received this broadcast, good morning. If you happen to watch the news from the previous few days, you may remember that my name is Ye Can, the daughter of General Ye Pingdao, and also Third-class citizen Si Fei.”
Chen Dongrong turned his head, the personal waiter was at a loss, and explained in a low and hurried manner: “The passage has been invaded, and it is being solved now, please wait a moment, wait…”
“Close the live broadcast channel, turn off all equipment! Turn off the sound!”
The soft female voice still sounded in the venue: “Unfortunately, now I am also an imperial wanted criminal, so I have to convey my wishes to you in this way.”
“Sir, the console is out of control…”
At the same time, the crowd was upset because of confusion.
Si Fei stared at the camera, earnestly and earnestly: “In short, I don’t want to be Major General Chen’s puppet, so I ran away. But let me…” She paused, seeming a little nervous, “Let me muster the courage, It’s not about personal safety that’s playing here. Because I found out…”
She raised her voice: “Young Master Chen Dongrong has maintained contact with the armed forces of the uprising for many years, and directly controls the organization that once took root in Oberon!”
The noise has become a roar.
Si Fei shook his head and spoke faster: “This is indeed unbelievable, but Major General Chen does regard law and ethics as nothing, and provides funds, raw materials and even weapons to this armed organization through offshore companies and factories. My companion has all The relevant documents are packaged and uploaded to the major communication platforms, and you can download, read and compile them by yourself—”
The lighting and projection in the hall suddenly dimmed.
The power went out.
On the other side of the glass curtain wall behind the high platform, emergency lighting turned the faces of different looks pale.
“Immediately cut off the network in this area!” Chen Dongrong thumped to the desktop.
A senior communications officer swallowed: “Sir, this…”
“Sir, the so-called download volume of the information package has been…” Another person in the think tank raised his eyes from the projection, closed his voice arduously, and turned to persuade, “Now urgent public relations are the key to reversing public opinion.”
“The situation outside?”
“The ceiling of the venue has been closed, the military and police are maintaining order, and the mecha and heavy armor are already in place, just in case. Major satellite cities have entered a first-level alert state, and military control and curfews can be implemented if necessary. General Su currently No action.”
Chen Dongrong took a few deep breaths, rubbing his eyebrows and asked in a deep voice, “Where is Ye Can?”
“The other party’s broadcast is still going on. Just mentioned… Oberon’s specific operation process.”
A picture projected from the center of the round table, Si Fei looked coldly: “Even the armed organization is only a tool for Chen Dongrong. Once it loses its usefulness, it will be discarded. The informant Jiang Huai he has placed in the organization has been his for many years. The old subordinates defected to Oberon for ten years, but it was also Jianghuai that closed the underground sluice at the last moment, and dealt the organization a fatal blow.”
“Relying on Oberon’s big victory, I dare not make any judgments about what Major General Chen got. But I just want to ask him, when he secretly transported the Grey Falcon mecha to the enemy on the surface, there was Haven’t thought about the consequences? To those who died in Oberon as a result of the mech attack, whether they were imperial soldiers or ordinary residents…Are you ashamed?”
There was no shortage of people present who knew this inside story for the first time, and couldn’t help but cast a horrified look at Chen Dongrong.
The old man stood up blankly: “Resume the power supply, and the surrounding red alert is strictly prohibited. I will go outside.”
Communication interference continued, and Si Fei’s face was suddenly all over the venue.
The crowd that had been messing around started to riot again.
Si Fei smiled: “You may have also noticed that I did not use the word rebel, but an armed organization. Because I was in Oberon at that time, and due to some coincidence, I went deep into the enemy camp. I saw it with my own eyes. Seeing that there is no winner in this battle, there are only meaningless casualties.”
“Life is not a number, but how many deaths have happened repeatedly. In the face of death, first-class citizens, second-class citizens and third-class citizens do not distinguish between high and low.”
Chen Dongrong stood on the high platform, and the crowd nearby immediately rushed to the edge of the stand, throwing sharp questions one after another:
“Are those just real?”
“Deception! Get out!”
“If it’s not true, why don’t you explain, why cut off the power?!”
The military and police had no choice but to shoot into the sky.
Screaming and roaring one after another, the scene is almost out of control.
“Presumably, Major General Chen has a lot to say, but before that, I still want to ask a few questions.” Si Fei slowed down his tone, every syllable was prudent and clear, and the venue suddenly became quiet.
“Do you really think that the genetic sequence determines a person’s pros and cons before everyone is born?”
“Is there no value for people with defects to live?”
“Whether it’s physiology, psychology, hobbies, or ambitions, is it a mistake to be born different?”
She exhaled like a sigh: “It’s not difficult to understand that you are indifferent because it doesn’t matter to you, but the next victim may be you, your partner, and your child. Can you just ignore it?”
Chen Dongrong opened his mouth, but he couldn’t make a sound. Instead, he turned around and went back behind the scenes again.
“As long as you have permission, data can be tampered with at will. The Human Genetic Screening Project is a scam full of loopholes,” Si Fei said in a clear voice. “Recognizing the civil hierarchy is to give up the right to control one’s life. No one has the right. Determine whether any person has survival value.”
“It is indeed a dark time, but even if there is only one lamp, it is better than complete darkness. So… even if doing so would betray my father’s will, I won’t feel a pity.”
The communication was cut off, and the picture went completely dark.
The central venue also plunged into a silent dark night.
“Well, social media has been exploded. Data packets, videos, and screenshots can’t be deleted by the network administrator. Unless all network services are stopped, this news will be hidden.” Shi Mingxiu browses Looking at the major information platforms, nodded in satisfaction.
There was a momentary blank in Si Fei’s mind, staring at the closed camera for a while, and then taking a half step.
“Good job,” Chen Miaomiao leaped forward and gave her a hug, “I really didn’t see it, you can talk…”
Although there is a draft of the remark just now, the content of the second half has not been drafted in advance.
There are some words that she deliberated in her mind countless times, and finally said it today.
But does she say too much?
Si Fei suddenly became frightened, and Si Fei smiled bitterly and shook his head: “Always forgive me…”
Yang Mian bit her lip and said in a low voice, “Thank you.”
Si Fei was startled, then smiled slightly and said, “No thanks.”
She finally looked at Su Suye, and the two of them looked at each other and laughed without words.
“Friends, friends, we will celebrate later, Chen Dongrong is back on stage again.” Shi Mingxiu turned the broadcast volume up.
Su Suye glanced at the monitor and frowned suddenly: “Are there any abnormalities in the surrounding conditions?”
The artificial intelligence immediately replied: “After scanning, there are a total of ten Grey Falcon fuselages in front, which are accelerating and approaching. The estimated time of arrival is 5 minutes.”
The atmosphere suddenly became solemn.
“Accelerate immediately, how much distance can you open?”
h was silent for a moment: “It can be delayed for another 3 minutes or so. It takes at least 10 and a half minutes to completely escape.”
Only one of the four mechas on the ship can barely operate, and it is absolutely impossible to fight against ten complete mechas, even if it only delays time, it is extremely difficult. In such a situation, two and a half minutes of margin should be left…
Su Suye grabbed Si Fei, her fingers trembling so hard, her eyes under her forehead looked gloomy, her words suddenly and painfully: “Don’t go.”
She wanted to refute, but finally compromised under his gaze. She lowered her eyes and responded, “I won’t go anywhere.”
Chen Miaomiao sighed softly, and was interrupted before he could speak.
“I’ll go for two and a half minutes.” Tian Jue said suddenly.
Chen Miaomiao directly rejected: “You can’t delay that long.”
Tian Jue pressed his lips tightly, repeating in a deep voice, “I will drag it to two and a half minutes.”
“You…” Chen Miaomiao was angry. Yang Mian grabbed her and shook her head, then slowly persuaded:
“Let’s talk about the situation at the venue first.”
The six people present turned their eyes to the projection screen in silence.
The open-air ceiling has been closed, the daylight is isolated, and the venue is like eternal night. Only the emergency lights cast a pale beam of light, moving back and forth, illuminating faces of confusion, anger, and fear.
“Dear citizens of the empire…” Chen Dongrong stood on the high platform for a long time before finally speaking.
Even the rebroadcast sound source can clearly capture the commotion of the crowd in the audience because of this sentence.
Yang Mian stared at the video with sharp eyes and took a sigh of relief: “There seems to be a mobile fortress and anti-riot robots on the edge of the venue.”
The noise continued. The broadcast volume of the conference site increases instantly:
“Dear citizens of the empire, regarding the sudden situation just now, I deny all the false accusations!” Chen Dongrong paused. Unstable breathing sounded from the loudspeaker. “Before proving my innocence, I should agree. The affairs will be handed over to…”
This time, he could not finish.
Someone screamed and then screamed from the edge of the venue, from which the gunshots could be distinguished.
But that corner is too dark to see anything.
“Do you want to suppress it by force?” Su Suye sneered in a dumb voice.
I don’t know who is taking the lead, and suddenly there are stars in the auditorium.
The gunshots stopped, and the voices of humans were lowered. In the silence, they lit up one after another, interlaced in rows and woven into pieces.
The sporadic light spots quickly spread into the starry sky low to the ground.
Not only the auditorium is lit up, but also the reviewing squares in the oval venue are lit up one by one. Mech formations, ground forces, peacekeeping forces, and Black Hawks…
This vast sea is more silent than the real stars, but more powerful.
Because every star is a person with outstretched arms and a pair of silent eyes.
“The lighting function of the communication device…” Chen Miaomiao murmured.
It’s a dark hour, but even a single light is better than complete darkness.
What’s more, there are more than one lamp, there are tens of millions.
