Volume 3 Chapter 52 One Ev
“You’re worried that Still will misunderstand?” Evita pursed her lips and couldn’t help laughing, “Chairman, aren’t you…..worried too much?”
“How could it be too much? Great Magician Camilla just warned me, can I not worry?” Xu Yi snappily said, “If Still had the same idea as Great Magician Camilla, wouldn’t it be terrible?”
Evita looked at Still and she gradually revealed a sigh.
“Chairman, I really am envious of Still. She has an outstanding husband like you who is devoted to her, she really is blessed.”
“Is this not normal?” Xu Yi asked back in a confused voice, “If you don’t devote yourself to your wife, what kind of man are you?”
“No, chairman, your idea is rarely seen not just in the Lampuri Kingdom, it’s rarely seen on the entire Sines Continent.” Evita said with a shake of her head.
“Could it be that all the men on the Sines Continent are unfaithful?” Xu Yi asked back.
Evita said with a sigh, “For men, being unfaithful doesn’t exist because for the people of the Sines Continent, a man is only complete if he has at least three girls by his side.”
“You want to say that I’m not a complete man?” Xu Yi glared at her, “Could it be that you girls all want your husbands to look for other girls?”
“From the perspective of us girls, of course not.” Evita shook her head, “But this is the truth that everyone recognizes on the continent, one that can’t be changed at all. For example, although the chairman has a good relationship with Still and is devoted to her, no matter who it is, including yourself, cannot guarantee that this won’t change in the future. You might have a relationship with another girl, right?”
Xu Yi honestly thought about it before giving a nod with a bitter smile, “You’re right, as a strict engineer, I can’t deny the possibility of this matter.”
“It isn’t just possible, it should be certain.” Evita said with a faint smile, “Chairman, with your outstanding ability, your great wealth, and the fact you’re a young noble, I think that there isn’t a girl who doesn’t like you. Actually as long as you’re willing, you can pick any girl in Banta City. Only you are exceptionally conservative and haven’t done this yet.”
Xu Yi thought about the girls who openly seduced him at the banquets and he couldn’t help revealing another bitter smile.
That’s right, if his mind wasn’t firm enough, perhaps he might have had this idea and had already fallen.
“Chairman, since you’re worried about Still, then I’ll tell you a small secret.” Evita suddenly seemed like she had decided something and said this through gritted teeth.
“Oh? What secret?” Xu Yi asked in a curious voice.
“Actually Still secretly told our circle of friends about this a few days ago. She expressed that she could accept you having a few lovers because she knows that you are outstanding, so she can’t stop you from having lovers. Not to mention that she would be blamed by everyone if she did this, so she doesn’t mind this matter at all. You don’t need to worry.”
Xu Yi looked at Evita in shock, “Are you kidding? How could Still accept my having lovers? Although she is a magnanimous girl, she couldn’t justify this no matter what.”
“No, I’m not lying to you. Still did say this and I can guarantee that these are her true thoughts. She said that as long as you don’t publicize these lovers, she wouldn’t interfere.”
Seeing Evita’s serious expression, Xu Yi’s heart couldn’t help skipping a beat.
If what Evita said was true, didn’t that mean that he had special permission to find a lover outside?
But thinking about it, Xu Yi shook his head.
First not mentioning Great Magician Camilla, even he wouldn’t be able to forgive himself.
Xu Yi was a very traditional person and before meeting Still, he never felt anything special for girls.
So for him, instead of wasting time on girls, it was better to spend more time on research or something else more meaningful.
Not to mention that he felt that he didn’t spend enough time with Still, so he left work for the company to other people.
If he used this hard earned time to spend with another girl, that was putting the horse before the carriage.
Thinking of this, Xu Yi shook his head and got rid of all his random thoughts. He looked at Evita and turned to another place in the lab. He looked around before asking, “Let’s not talk about this, let’s talk about work. How is it? Has there been any progress lately?”
A trace of disappointment appeared in Evita’s eyes before she quickly calmed down. She gave a nod and took a piece of paper from the lab table before saying to Xu Yi, “Chairman, look, this is the Magic Crystal Refining Array that I finished last week. After testing it for a few days, I’ve confirmed that after Magic Crystals have been refined by this array, all the parameters will become normalized.”
“Oh? That’s great.” Xu Yi seriously looked over this piece of paper and ran some calculations in his mind before giving a nod of praise, “Based on this blueprint, it is indeed quite good. But Evita, are you certain that everything will be the same when refining different quality of Magic Crystals?”
“Yes.” Evita took a notebook from the table and flipped to a page for Xu Yi, “This is the data that I’ve recorded from refining Magic Crystals over the past few days. Look, before refining them, I chose Magic Crystals of the same size with the same quality. The Magic Crystals produced at all the same, with a percentage error of less than 1%.”
“This is already quite precise, but how did you obtain this data?” Xu Yi looked over the notebook and was suddenly surprised, “One Ev? What unit of measurement is this?”
Evita’s face turned a bit red, “This…..was a name I casually came up with……”
“Casually?” Xu Yi shook his head, “Data can’t be come up with casually. Come, tell me, what does one Ev represent?”
Evita’s face turned even redder as she lowered her head and replied in a low voice, “One Ev…..It’s the magic power in the Magic Crystal that can maintain the Flame Array for an hour……”
“Oh, this unit of measurement isn’t bad. Then…..” Xu Yi took a fist sized Magic Crystal from the desk and asked, “How many Evs does this Magic Crystal have?”
Evita looked over it and said while shaking her head, “That is a Magic Crystal that hasn’t been refined yet, so there’s no way to get an accurate number.”
“Oh, then find a Magic Crystal that has already been refined for me.”
“Alright.” Evita took a rectangular Magic Crystal that was only the size of Xu Yi’s thumb from the lab bench, “This Magic Crystal was refined from a Magic Crystal of the same quality and size as the one you just mentioned. According to my estimates, it should be around a hundred Evs.”
“This small piece was refined from that large Magic Crystal?” Xu Yi couldn’t help gasping as he said, “It seems like Evita’s Magic Array is quite strong. This is no longer refining, it is fine tuning!”
Xu Yi took the small Magic Crystal from Evita’s hand and carefully looked it over. He found that although the Magic Crystal was small, it was actually quite clear and dense. It was no wonder that this small Magic Crystal could compare to the large Magic Crystal that hadn’t been refined yet.
“But this small piece is a hundred Evs, it seems like one Ev is too small. In the stronger Magic Crystals, wouldn’t they contain several tens of thousands of Evs?” Xu Yi said.
“This is nothing, it can be changed. For example, this piece can become one Ev…..” After saying this, Evita lowered her head again.
Xu Yi laughed and patted Evita’s shoulder, “Alright, Evita, there’s nothing embarrassing about this. This was invented by you, so of course you can name it. Calling it one Ev isn’t anything, if it was me, I wouldn’t hesitate to call it one Xu. Eh….Alright, one Xu doesn’t sound good, it can’t compare to one Ev. Un, that’s decided, Evs will be used as the unit of measure for Magic Power. One Ev will be the magic power needed to maintain the Flame Array for a hundred hours, what do you think?”
Evita’s face was completely red and she didn’t dare refute it, she could only give a soft sound of agreement.
Xu Yi laughed and played with the Magic Crystal in his hand. He looked at Evita with a serious look and asked, “Now do you understand why I wanted to conduct research into standardizing Magic Crystals?”
Hearing this question, Evita was no longer shy. She looked up to think before saying with a nod, “I understand. It’s because it’s the same as the magic machines our company produces, we have to standardize it first before mass producing it. Moreover, by standardizing magic power, it’ll be much easier when conducting research into magic machine production.”
“The significance of standardizing isn’t just this. The most important thing is that with a standard, we can integrate all magic machines into this standard and create a magic power line. We can even connect all magic machines in Banta City to this magic power line, which makes it much easier to use. I can definitely say that this thing has an era creating significance. So Evita, you have to continue studying this topic.” Xu Yi said with a serious look.
Evita gave a strong nod, “I will.”
“Alright, I believe in your abilities.” Xu Yi said with a faint smile, “But before that, I hope that you can write a book with me.”
“Write a book?” Evita looked at Xu Yi in surprise.
“Right, this book will be called «Standardizing Magic».”
