Being used to these kind of situation, both Fatty Han and Zhang Yang quickly headed to a corner and complied. After all, those policemen were holding electric batons! If they were to get stung by those contraptions, it would be stinging for a few days!
Qian Hong Wen, however, refused to comply! He was the officer in this province! A leader, technically! These police officers are all under his rank! They were practically his subordinates! If he listened to them and kneel down, how could he still face the public after being humiliated so extensively! Furthermore, he was the victim here! Fatty Han’s punch had knocked out two of his front teeth! If he did not at least beat them with a punch or two, he would not be able to sleep comfortably tonight!
The policemen walked closer and when they saw this one man still rearing for a fight, they zapped him with the electric baton and sent the man down to his knees.
“GRAaa.Aaah..argh…ah..” The poor man was zapped badly before he could no longer remain standing, where he laid on the ground twitching with the remaining electric current in his system.
“Wait! He’s the.. GRAHHahhh…ah….” The poor Monkey Butt was already kneeling down when he quickly jumped to his feet to reveal Qian Hong Wei’s identity. But the policemen did not know that and thought that he was somewhat resisting arrest. They zapped him as well and left him shaking in pain.
Both Zhang Yang and Fatty Han saw what had happened and giggled quietly.
“Take them all back to the station!” cried one of the policemen. The number of participants in this fight was quite large. It could even consider to be a mass brawl. The leading policeman raised his hand and gave the command. The other policemen nodded their head and took them all into the police car.
One by one, they were led into the back seat of the police car, with men and women in separated vehicle. Zhou Kang Ming stared begrudgingly at Zhang Yang with a right eye. His left eye was completely swollen shut. He screamed at Zhang Yang angrily. “Look what you have done to us all!”
Liu Qi Ming was also one of the unlucky one, He had only wanted to get into a good relation with Fatty Han, he had never though that he might got involve in a fight, much less being dragged to the police station! If he was charged in participating in a street fight…he did not dare think any further. His face went pale and he started to sob uncontrollably.
Fatty Han heard the sob and scolded the poor little boy. “What are you crying for?! Have you never been to the police station?”
“Keep your mouth shut!” screamed the driver through the barbed net between the passenger and the driver. “Shut the f*ck up!”
Zhou Kang Ming froze in his seat and did not even dare make squeak of a mouse. Still, his rage had not been extinguished. He stared angrily at Zhang Yang and silently swore that he will accuse him as much as he could when the police question them.
Wee woo wee woo. The siren of the police car echoed as they reached the police station. Since the number of suspects was just too great, the car was driven into the station, stopping right in front of the building.
“Get out! Get your lazy bums out of the car now!” said the policeman as he dragged them all out like ducks out of their cages.
As they walked into the building, a man dressed in a casual clothing, looking to be around the age of 30, ran up to them and greeted the front most policeman.
“Are these the people that had cause the commotion at Dream City?”
“Yes, Secretary Lee!” said the policeman. The person that addressed him was the Secretary of the Chief of the Public Security Bureau. He could not afford to make a mistake.
Secretary Lee quickly search through the crowd, screaming, “Chief Qian! Chief Qian!”
“I’m here! I’m here!” cried Qian Hong Wei with his trembling lips. The poor man had zapped with the electric baton, and he could still feel the numbing sensation all over his body. The man could not even speak properly.
Secretary Lee quickly headed toward Qian Hong Wei and said sternly. “Officer Bai, this man is the Cang Lang Province Government Publication Department Deputy Chief Qian Hong Wen! Look at him! Look at how much he was mistreated! These psychotic mad men had betrayed the country and dared to even strike a member of the government! We have to punish these rogues severely with extreme prejudice!”
The policeman called Bai was stunned. He had never known that he had arrested the Cang Lang Province Government Publication Department Deputy Chief Qian Hong Wen! Oh god! He did see one of his subordinate using the electric baton to attack the man! If the department finds out what had happened, he would be partially responsible for it!
Zhou Kang Ming was completely dumbfounded. His heart racing madly. Psychotic? Betray the country? Rogues?! If he was really charged with those accusation, he would not even die in peace! He quickly jumped in horror and screamed at the top of his lungs. “I’M INNOCENT! INNOCENT, I TELL YOU! IT WAS ALL ZHANG YANG AND HAN GUANG! IT WAS THE TWO OF THEM THAT STARTED THE FIGHT! I’M INNOCENT! INNOCENT!” 06-35 Lotte’s Remodeling
The next day, Jin was very busy starting from the morning.
“Jin-sama, His Highness Ernest has summoned you.”
Immediately after breakfast summons from the Prince came, and Jin left for the inner royal palace. There was the third Prince Ernest along with lotte.
“Oh, Jin, repair Lotte properly at once!”
The third Prince Ernest said. It seemed like a royal’s selfishness, but as Jin treasured Lotte whom he built himself, he laughed and agreed.
“If possible, I’d like it if you made her more durable than before.”
The Prince said to Jin.
“More durable? Not stronger?”
Jin replied with a question.
“Uh huh, make no mistake, her being stronger would be good but before that I don’t want her to be broken.”
The prince replied. Jin was pleased with his answer. He then said,
“Understood, I’ll give it all I got.”
The prince was greatly delighted.
“You will? In that case, you can use any of the materials in the storehouse! With my permission you’ll be let to take them!”
He said and went off, and immediately came back holding some documents in his hands.
“If you show these, the manager will let you in.”
He said and handed the permit to Jin.
“Well then, I wonder what kind of materials there are.”
After obtaining the permit, Jin first borrowed the workshop inside the royal palace. It seemed to be a place that was usually used for the maintenance of knight golems.
He had Lotte wait there, and from there took a cart for transporting materials and pulled it half excitedly to the royal palace’s raw material storehouse. It was in the corner of the inner royal palace grounds. Two soldiers were guarding it, and official was closely managing who was allowed in.
Jin showed the permit he got from the Prince and was immediately let in. The official followed him in just in case to watch out for theft, but Jin had absolutely no intention of doing that. Because at any rate, the materials would be several levels behind ones in Hourai Island.
Even so, materials valuable in their own way were also stored within.
Jin took plenty of aluminium and bronze, within limits. In addition he decided to use a little bit of Adamantite, four Magi Crystals, and a Sand Worm’s leather.
He glanced at the official in charge who was muttering something about how if Jin didn’t have the Prince’s permit. Jin the pushed the materials cart back to the workshop lent by the Prince.
When he got back it wasn’t just Lotte but the Prince too.
“Ahaha, I wanted to see Jin repair Lotte, so I ended up skipping today’s studies.
It seemed the Prince Ernest was very fond of golems. Or maybe he was just fond of Lotte.
“Is it fine if I watch from here?”
“Sure, go right ahead.”
Jin didn’t hold any dislike towards this Prince who genuinely loved golems.
Jin suspended Lotte’s Magic Energy and,
“First, let’s reinforce the skeleton.”
With that explanation he went towork.
“Ah, that’s aluminium, isn’t it? And that over there is Adamantite.”
As might be expected after he said he wanted to make his own golem in the future, the Prince was reasonably informed.
“Yes, first I’ll change the steel skeleton to an aluminium one.”
Jin said, and began to form a replacement for the skeleton identical in dimensions. Usually the work would be over just like that, but for the Prince’s sake he took it easy.
“Oh really, Lotte’s skeleton was like this.”
“It’s close to a human’s.”
Jin kept working while sometimes giving explanations. After that he coated the surfaces that moved along other surfaces with adamantite.
“Ah, I see. Partially using adamantite to prevent wearing down.”
The Prince also was rather quick to understand.
Next was the work on the muscles. Forming fibers of Sand Worms’ leather, Jin intertwined them together to make ‘Magical Muscles’.
“Amazing, I’ve never seen this technique before…”
The prince said as he kept staring at Jin working. The current look of the golem with the muscles attached was frankly ominous, but the prince wasn’t concerned about it one bit.
Then was the most important bit: inserting the Magi Device. This was just a simple transplantation of the already existing one, or so the Prince thought, but,
“Your Highness, this structure protects Lotte from the [Subordination Rewriting Magic].”
He said and held out the Magi Device in front of the Prince to show it well to him.
“Hmm, so this is the centralmost part of Lotte. …Could this container be Mithril? There’s some Magi Formula carved on it too?”
“Yeah, it’s a Magi Formula to protect against outside magic.”
“There’s a Magi Formula like that!?”
The Magi Formula was of the same nature as a [Magic Barrier]. The effective area was the inside of the component instead of an airspace though.
Jin was going to teach the method of protecting against the [Subordination Rewriting Magic] to the Minister of Magic later, he said, and resumed the work.
He put the Magi Device in its proper place in the chest and covered the surroundings well with Magical Muscles.
“Now the first step is over.”
Jin said, and waited for questions. As he thought, a question came from the Prince.
“Hey, if the Magi Device is covered with Mithril, outside magic may not influence it, but doesn’t that also mean Magic Energy can’t get out from the inside?”
A rather good question. Jin found it easy to understand why the Prince asked it and replied,
“Usually that would be the case. But, see these wires coming out from it?”
Jin pointed at the six wires protruding out.
“These are conducting wires that transmit Magical Energy to all of the body parts. They’re linked to each of the arms and legs, the head, and the torso.”
“Oh, I see. But can’t the magic travel through those wires to the other direction?
The Prince’s understanding was excellent. Jin was glad and began one of his explanations.
“It cannot. These wires are made out of Mithril, and while they let Magical Energy through, they don’t let magic through. If you want to know why, then…”
Magic Energy was simple waves of energy, but magic was an energy with substance in a sense, so traveling through this thin wire would be difficult for it, he explained.
It seemed the Prince still only understood about half of the explanation, but at the very least it was conveyed that that’s the way things are.
“You’re amazing, Jin. You seem to know more than my teacher.”
The Prince Ernest looked at Jin with respect. Jin smiled and resumed his work.
“Now, Lotte’s restoration, entering the final stage.”
With that notification, he removed the exterior of the ex-Lotte, and moved it over to neo-Lotte. While replenishing the missing parts with the bronze he brought.
Seeing Lotte return to her original form in front of him, the Prince was also delighted.
When the transplantation of the exterior was finished, only the steel skeleton was left. Everything else had been recycled.
“Alright, shall we do the final finishing touches?”
Jin said and returned the steel skeleton back to an ingot.
“Woow, how magnificent.”
The Prince observed the process of turning the skeleton into an ingot and praised Jin. Even this was just tenth of Jin’s normal working speed. Normally the transformation would be over in the blink of an eye.
