Chapter 3: Resignation

Xiao Luo could not be bothered to find out who the doctors wanted to pin the blame on.
He was now completely immersed in the excitement of the Constitution of the King of Mercenaries brought about by the Genius System Without Equal. The iron railing of the hospital bed had been twisted and deformed by his bare hands. He had now thoroughly confirmed the very real existence of the system. This was not a hallucination produced after the concussion.
“‘If one does not perish in a great disaster, blessings will surely follow’. The words of the ancients really don’t lie, hahaha …”
Xiao Luo could not suppress himself and laughed heartily. He felt as if he had woken up and found that he had turned into Superman who wore his red underpants on the outside and could fly in the sky. It was difficult to describe the excitement in words.
“Hey hey hey, Lao Xiao, what’s up with you? Don’t scare me. Why are you getting happy all by yourself in such a silly way?” Zhang Dashan clapped his hands in front of Xiao Luo’s eyes, but he did not see how Xiao Luo had twisted the iron railing of the bed into a deformed shape.
Xiao Luo looked at his ex-college room-mate and buddy in front of him, he really wanted to tell him about the Genius System Without Equal.
But he thought better of it. It was better to keep this matter to himself. If he said it, he would only be treated like a lunatic by Zhang Dashan. After all, this was too ridiculous, who would believe that he had merged with the Genius System Without Equal from a parallel universe a hundred billion light years away?
“What are you looking at? I’m nothing to look at. Tell me, why are you lying in the hospital?” Zhang Dashan jabbed at Xiao Luo’s chest with a finger, putting all his strength behind the motion.
“Ah…. disappointment in love!”
Xiao Luo sighed. He followed up with an account about how Zhao Mengqi broke up with him, after which, he drove his car at high speed in the suburbs late at night and ended up in a car accident.
After listening, Zhang Dashan sighed, “F*ck me, you’ve really survived a great disaster!”
“Can’t you understand the main point?” Xiao Luo rolled his eyes.
Zhang Dashan immediately scolded, “The main point is bollocks. Zhao Mengqi is less than a fart. Breaking up with you is her loss. You are so outstanding. You even have an occipital bun at the back of your skull. The physiognomy books have said that this is a feature of an emperor. One day, sooner or later, you will become rich and powerful, when that time comes, the only thing left for Zhao Mengqi to do is to secretly cry by herself. ”
Xiao Luo did not know whether to laugh or cry. He patted Dashan’s shoulder, “Dashan, I really salute you for your skill at talking drivel. No one can beat you at this.”
Zhang Dashan waved his hand impatiently, and then said with a serious expression, “By the way, do you feel any discomfort now? For example, do you feel like vomiting?”
“There’s nothing wrong with me. I’m lucky this time, only the car was thrashed, I’m totally fine and can be discharged now,” Xiao Luo said.
“Lao Xiao, we can’t brag about this, the body is an asset for revolution. You can’t afford to be careless about it. If you have no money for treatment, I have. I don’t have millions, but I can definitely come up with three to four thousand dollars for you.” With their relationship, Zhang Dashan was a straight-talker who did not hide things or beat about the bush.
“There’s really no need for that!”
Xiao Luo immediately leaped from the bed. Not only did he jump three times on the floor, he also walked upside down to prove that his body was better.
Zhang Dashan’s eyes widened, “Oh my lord, when did you learn to walk upside down? You’ve hidden that skill so well.”
He now completely believed in his heart that there was no major issues with Xiao Luo’s body.
“Ding! Congratulations. You’ve earned five points.”
Xiao Luo ignored the system notification and ended the handstand. He dusted his palms and said irritably to Zhang Dashan, “So, according to what you’ve said, do I have to report to you even when I go to the bathroom?”
“I’m not interested in you going to the bathroom, but I would love to hear about it if you have sex with a girl. The more detailed the better, hehe…..” Zhang Dashan laughed in a vulgar way.
“F*ck your sister!”
Zhang Dashan ran out with a hearty laugh to complete the discharge papers for Xiao Luo.
They had a simple breakfast together after leaving the hospital. Xiao Luo and Zhang Dashan went to the Traffic Police where his domestic car was. The car was seriously deformed, even the engine was broken. Even if it was repaired, it would still bounce heavily on a flat road like the broken car that it was. He could only apply for it to be scrapped.
“Don’t feel bad about it, it’s just a car. ‘If the old doesn’t go, the new will not come’. The same logic applies to girlfriends. There’s always a good car, a good woman in this world that belongs solely to you,” Zhang Dashan consoled.
Xiao Luo smiled and didn’t speak. After barely escaping from the Grim Reaper’s clutches, he had gotten over many things in his mind. His mental state was much more calm and collected than before.
“Do you want to go home or the company?” Zhang Dashan opened the driver’s door of his Corolla and asked Xiao Luo.
“To the company.”
“F*ck, you insist on going to work even after a car accident. If I’m Jack Ma, I’ll definitely send you a dedication blessing card.” (A category in an AR game by Alipay where one can win money)
“I’m not going to work, but to resign!” Xiao Luo said helplessly.
Zhang Dashan frowned, feeling a little agitated, “You’re resigning just because of Zhao Mengqi? My bro, aren’t you acting too much like a loser?”
Xiao Luo sighed, but did not explain. He opened the door to the front passenger seat and got into the car.
In fact, he had thought about resigning long ago. Not only was working in a manufacturing factory a repetitive grind every day, it also lacked challenges. He could not see any future in this.
He had never felt particularly happy about this job. If Zhao Mengqi did not also work at Huahai Group, he would have chosen to leave long ago. Now that he had the Genius System Without Equal, there was no need to restrict his career path to Huahai Corporation.
Zhang Dashan stopped shooting his mouth off and got into the driver’s seat. He drove Xiao Luo to Huahai Corporation.
“Lao Xiao, cheer up. We are men. There is no need to be sad and depressed over a woman who doesn’t care for you,” Zhang Dashan spoke again in consolation.
“I’ve opened my mind; I can adjust myself well.”
Xiao Luo’s heart warmed, “By the way, you should pay attention when you’re driving, don’t learn from me and run yourself off the road.”
“Touch wood….. No good words can be expected from a scoundrel like you. I’m leaving. I’ll call you up again for a good time when I’m free.” Zhang Dashan stepped on the accelerator and boldly drove his Corolla away.
Xiao Luo watched him leave until he couldn’t see the shadow of the car any more. He collected his gaze and turned around, swiping his employee card and walking into Huahai Corporation
His resignation was finally completed just before noon.
Holding a box of his stuff, Xiao Luo walked down the main pathway of Huahai Corporation, where he had worked for three years. All sorts of feelings welled up in his heart. This was his first job after graduating from university. He still remembered when he had first arrived, full of dreams and ideals. Each and every scene flitted across his mind like a movie.
“Xiao Luo, stop right there!”
A familiar voice rang out behind him, with a hint of command behind her tone.
Xiao Luo stopped and turned back to meet a beautiful face. That was Zhao Mengqi, a stylishly dressed woman with a sweet appearance.
He was not surprised at all that Zhao Mengqi had knew about his resignation. After all, she worked in the HR Department. There were thousands in Huahai Corporation, whether they stayed or left, the HR department had detailed records of all of them.
“Is there something wrong?” Xiao Luo asked indifferently.
Zhao Mengqi ran up to him in her high heels. She glanced at the contents of Xiao Luo’s box with a scornful expression in her eyes, “Xiao Luo, can’t you be a bit more mature? You and me, we’ve come to the end, but do you have to resign over this and ruin your future? Even if you don’t want to think about yourself, you have to consider your family. You would have no source of income after you resign. Do you intend to go back and live off your parents? ”
