Heroes of Marvel - Chapter 104
CHAPTER 104 DISPLAYING HIS BRAVERY AND WISDOM
A few minutes later, Lin Rui and Tony were sitting face to face in a coffee shop. As for the car and the repair shop, it is now the property of Stark’s industry.
“Mr. Stark, it seems that I have to pay you for the repair of my car now.” After taking a sip of coffee and putting the cup in front of him, Lin Rui looked across at Tony and said with a smile. Although Lin Rui couldn’t understand the world of rich man, he was secretly very happy to see Tony buy the repair shop directly.
“Five hundred dollars. If you want a car, I can give you a new one. Stark Industries has been designing its own car and the latest anti-gravity maglev vehicle is about to take shape.” Hearing that Lin Rui was still struggling with five hundred dollars, Tony said with a smile. With the value of the glass of water that Lin Rui gave Tony last night, he can pretty much ask Tony anything. That glass of water saved Tony’s life.
“Ohh, The Stark Industries has been designing their own car, obviously you want to drive a faster and more exciting sports car? And isn’t it too extravagant to add anti-gravity technology to a car! Will it run on the ground? Or fly in the air?” Lin Rui spoke quickly as he heard Tony’s words. When did the Stark Industries get interested in cars? If it wasn’t for Tony, the entire Stark Industries combined wouldn’t be able to make anti-gravity cars.
“Although I know that Mr. Stark has always been generous but how can you promise to give me a new type of car that has not yet been finalized. It is too generous.” Although he was saying these things without much emotion showing on his face, Lin Rui’s face was still very happy.
“Right, why did you come here? Seeing your drunkness last night, I thought you would have to sleep for a few days?” Lin Rui started asking questions.
Lin Rui still doesn’t know that all of his little movements last night were recorded by J.A.R.V.I.S. and Tony already knows that he is alive today because of Lin Rui’s glass of water. If Lin Rui had known, he would have taken the time to come up with several excuses.
“Don’t you know why I came here to look for you? Jackson.” Picking up the coffee in front of him, Tony thought about Lin Rui question and replied with one of his own.
“Well? How should I know?” Lin Rui is stunned when he heard Tony’s words, but he was still very confused.
“Where did the glass of water you gave me last night come from? Don’t say anything about pouring it out of the fridge. J.A.R.V.I.S. has your video of last night. That glass of water was poured out of your pocket from nothing.” Looking into Lin Rui’s eyes, Tony didn’t beat around the bush anymore and asked directly.
“Uh, that glass of water? Isn’t that a normal glass of water…” Lin Rui didn’t feel good when he heard Tony’s words. Originally, the fridge was his prime excuse, but Tony already blocked that excuses.
“To tell you the truth, before last night, I was about to die of Palladium Poisoning. But after drinking that glass of water you gave me, the palladium in my body was cleared overnight. I know you helped me.” Seeing that Lin Rui was still acting silly, Tony continued.
“This…Mr. Stark are you sure you got cured because of that glass of water. Maybe you ate something else that cured your poisoning.” Lin Rui couldn’t find an excuse so he could only say nonsense.
“Jackson, you can rest assured that you saved my life. If this is your secret, I won’t force you to say it. But I hope you can give me some of that water, I need more time to find new elements to replace Palladium. Although I’m recovering now, the core of Palladium in Arc Reactor is still invading my body all the time and I’ll die a month later because of Palladium Poisoning.” He seemed to know that Lin Rui would not say or explain anything and Tony did not press him anymore, and then made a request that was very important to him.
Even if Lin Rui didn’t tell Tony where the magical water came from, at least he could help Tony get some time so he had more chances to find an alternative to Palladium and get rid of the threat of death forever.
“This… well! Mr. Stark, I am telling you the truth. The water I gave you last night and the charms I gave you before were all from a magical place. I know they have some magical effects, but I don’t know why they work like this. As for the extra glass of water you said you wanted, I’m sorry, I only have that one.” Hearing Tony’s earnest request, Lin Rui finally gave some selective facts. He just described the system as a magic place, which is not deception.
“Magic place? Where? XC? Nepal? Bermuda Triangle? Mysterious Island?” Sure enough, Tony reminded Lin Rui of some of the magical places on Earth that are old and mysterious.
“Neither, Mr. Stark. I won’t tell you where the place is, because I don’t even know.” Shaking his head, Lin Rui denied Tony’s guess. Why doesn’t Tony guessed that they were from an alien planet? That would be a bit more reliable.
“And, you said Palladium Poisoning, I think a month is enough for you to find new alternatives.” As long as Lin Rui tells Tony about Howard Stark’s legacy in S.H.I.E.L.D., he will soon find a new element and he won’t have to worry about his body.
Tony was disappointed to hear Lin Rui’s words and leaned back in his chair. Although he now has one month to search for a new element, he has been searching for new element for so long without any results. How can he guarantee to find it in the next month?
Seeing Tony’s disappointment, Lin Rui almost told him the truth, but he finally suppressed it. It is not the time to expose himself, although he believes that Tony will not tell others. But now that S.H.I.E.L.D. is still under Hydra’s control, Lin Rui can’t take the risk.
“Mirage Knight!” However, just as Lin Rui was trying to tell Tony what he thought, Tony, sitting opposite him, suddenly shouted at Lin Rui.
“Ohh? Mirage Knight? Does Mr. Stark know the famous Vigilante, too?” The hand holding the coffee didn’t shake, and Lin Rui looked up and asked Tony.
Looking at Lin Rui’s performance which is very calm, but in fact, Lin Rui was so scared that he almost threw out the coffee in his hand. Lin Rui didn’t know why Tony suddenly called him Mirage Knight, but he must have some doubts. If it hadn’t been for the energy cultivation technique that Lin Rui’s practice, Lin Rui would have been defrauded by Tony just now.
“Nothing, just a meeting with him. What do you know about this Mirage Knight, Jackson?” Looking closely at Lin Rui’s expression, he finally found no flaws and Tony had to move on.
Indeed, Tony was just swindling Lin Rui, he wanted to see if his mysterious kid was the Vigilante Mirage Knight. However, the results seemed to disappoint him.
“Mr. Stark had seen Mirage Knight! Actually, I don’t know much about him, but I’m a member of his fans website. Mirage Knight fans will collect some good things that Mirage Knight has done and they will make a series of stories on the site. If Mr. Stark is interested in Mirage Knight, you can go to that website. By the way, the new Vigilante Spiderman is also very popular and is about to catch up with Mirage Knight. He also has his own fans website.” Like chatting with an ordinary friend, Lin Rui laughed and said to Tony.
“Well, I’ve found the phantom hero. Maybe you’ll see him in two days.” Looking at Lin Rui, Tony said lightly. Tony kept his promise to Peter and didn’t tell him his identity. Tony, however, used this message to continue testing Lin Rui.
“Really?! If Mr. Stark can really let me see Mirage Knight, I will be very happy.” His heart was already starting to beat like drums, but Lin Rui was still laughing and talking calmly on the outside.
“Did Tony really find me? Where was I exposed? Is it Matt? Or Peter? Or Wade? Jack?!” Carefully thinking about where he was exposed, Lin Rui has thought about his teammates over and over.
“Don’t worry, I’ll tell you the day I go to see him. But whether you can see him or not will depend on your luck.” Tony said lightly. If Lin Rui and Mirage Knight really appeared in front of Tony at the same time, then his guess about Lin Rui being Mirage Knight would be broken.
“Well, then I hope that my luck is better!” Lin Rui said with a small excitement. “What shit type luck! I don’t want to see Mirage Knight!” This is the real thought in Lin Rui’s heart.
Then, Tony didn’t talk to Lin Rui much. Today, he came to find Lin Rui and wasn’t able to achieve his initial goals, but Tony knew at least some things. As for Palladium Poisoning, Tony can only hope that he is lucky.
After watching Tony leave, Lin Rui kept smiling for a long time and it finally collapsed. It’s tired to fight the battle of wits with Tony for so long. Lin Rui feels it’s better if Tony put on his Iron Man Armor and fight him.
Just as Lin Rui was wondering whether he was really exposed, the phone belonging to Mirage Knight in his pocket rang.
“Hey? Mirage Knight, do you know who I saw??”
“Who?” Lin Rui suddenly had a bad feeling when he heard Peter’s voice from the phone.
“Iron Man! Mr. Tony Stark!”
Lin Rui: “…”
