Chapter 485: The Old Man’s Not Going to Make It (Part One)
Caesar looked at the man in front of him in shock. “Do you know what you are doing? Not even countries can do it, and you think you will? How many people do you have? There’s not even enough to fill the Interpol’s detention cell.”
Xu Cheng went over to measure how long Caesar’s arm should be as he said, “In this world, why is it the right thing to do only when they do it? Aren’t they basically being controlled by a bunch of wanna-be dictators behind the curtains? I just think life is too short, so I want to do something crazy when I still can, and see how big my stage can be before I die. I know that there are always a bunch of people at the top of the world controlling everything, and maybe we haven’t come in contact with them nor see them. But, there are always rules and laws, and nations have their laws, but who makes those laws? Let me ask you, what’s above the M Nation?”
Xu Cheng: “Right, so I want to come out and try this out, leaving no regrets.”
Caesar: “You don’t have anyone at home that you care about?”
Xu Cheng looked at him and said, “I do.”
Caesar: “Then you should give up on this unrealistic dream. Offending capitalism is even more serious than offending royalties. There are citizens supervising the actions of the royalties, but capitalism itself can oversee and manipulate everything in this society, including public opinion. If it wants you dead, then you will evaporate from the face of this earth. Your reckless behavior will only drag the people you care about into the mess. As long as people are warm-blooded, they will have a weakness. Only cold-blooded lunatics don’t have emotions and bonds; ordinary people wouldn’t be able to keep up with their rhythm, got it? Let me tell you, young man, there are many elites in this world, but there are different levels to elites. The people you are talking about are all the representatives of the elites on Earth, and they are justice and the truth, not some people you can challenge.”
Xu Cheng smiled and didn’t say anything.
Instead of saying more, he might as well do more; and right now, he was trying to do more.
“How do you want your limbs to look like?” Xu Cheng asked.
Caesar: “What do you mean?”
Xu Cheng: “Nothing. After your cells get resuscitated and we stimulate the growth of nerves and muscles, I will have to get a fixed frame on your arm or the new arm will look deformed.”
Xu Cheng browsed for some 3D renderings on the computer for Caesar and said, “Choose what kind of arm you need. After you pick one, I will get the workshop to produce the frame. It won’t be possible to change after it.”
Caesar pursed his lips. “I knew you were just going to put a prosthetic arm for me. I was right, who in the world could allow someone to miraculously grow another arm? That’s something possible only in science-fiction movies. If you are just going to put a prosthetic arm on me, I will pass. The nerves at the shoulder area are already severely damaged. All the surgeons I’ve asked all said it’s not easy to put on a prosthetic arm, but it’s impossible to connect the nerves properly for the arm to function normally. It might be okay if just half of the arm is amputated because you can still connect the nerves, but there’s nothing that can be done if the whole arm is amputated. Getting a prosthetic arm would basically be decoration so you don’t look too weird to others.”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“That’s also why I want you to do something crazy with me. If I don’t have some special capabilities, you think I would be standing here and bragging to you for so long?”
Then, Xu Cheng just gave him a shot of anesthetic without another word, and he carried him onto the operation table.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Lin Dong brought the frame over and helped get Caesar strapped onto the table. After that, Lin Dong said to Xu Cheng in a bit of disbelief, “Teacher, is there going to be a problem? Can his arms really grow back?”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Xu Cheng said to Lin Dong, “There’s only one question you don’t need to ask me, and as for other questions, I wouldn’t do something that I can’t do.”
