T/N: The chapters are too long and I didn’t want to keep you waiting so I separated them into 3 parts (makes my life easier too T^T). Enjoy~
The wall clock “ticking” rings regularly and the slender hollow second hand turns around the Roman numeral one after another. Outside the Atlantis, a few snow-white seagulls fluttered their wings and flew over the side of the cruise ship from time to time, dropping herringbone shadows in front of the huge French windows.
Su Jinzhi shifts his line of sight to the Deputy captain walking in front of the standing attendants.
He was tall, dressed in a long black coat with a retro cut, which slightly concealed his fat body. His cheeks were clean on both sides. Half of the decorative brass bracelet hung in his pocket. He was like a loyal old housekeeper in a medieval castle. Only the thin sweat on his forehead showed his restless heart.
“Why haven’t you come…” He furrowed his brows as he murmured after exhaling, and then turned to look up at the magnificent wall clock. His eyes suddenly widened, he took a deep breath, shook his head anxiously, and continued to walk back and forth in front of them.
Between the steps, his heel collided with the clean marble brick, and the dull and rapid steps made everyone in the room nervous with him.
Su Jinzhi is the calmest one in the group. He glanced at the vice-captain casually and then raised his hand to tidy up his collar.
His uniform was made by the vice-captain for him. It was more delicate and comfortable – and more attractive – than the cheap clothes worn by other attendants standing beside him. He spent three months as an attendant on this cruise ship and got the clothes. He didn’t get half of his salary and spent almost all his savings. He spent so much energy just for today.
To be exact, it’s for the man who booked the highest three floors of Atlantis today – Qin Yezhou, the main goal of saving the world.
Atlantis has 16 floors. It’s a super cruise ship with a displacement of more than 100000 tons. It’s known as “the sea city of the rich”. Just Qin Yezhou only bought three floors on the top. Just hearing about this and you can tell how rich he is.
But it’s hard to please the rich. There’s less than an hour before the cruise time, but Qin Yezhou hasn’t boarded yet. If he boarded after the cruise time, the vice-captain would probably be busy again, so it’s no wonder that he’s (T/N: the vice-captain) so nervous right now.
“Is Mr. Qin here yet? Already here?! ” The vice-captain held the phone which was he had just picked up and after being confirmed, his face was full of ecstasy. At the same time, he took out an exquisite handkerchief from his pocket and wiped the sweat beads on his forehead, and walked towards Su Jinzhi.
Seeing this, Su Jinzhi quickly put down his hands that were tidying up his collar and hid the panic and timidity in the depths of his eyes, putting on a neat smile. But even though he had tried his best to make the smile “neat” as possible, the vice-captain was still a bit absent-minded. After he got back to his senses, he immediately went Su Jinzhi’s side and asked the chef to give the food cart to Su Jinzhi. Then he patted his shoulder and whispered in his ear, “Mr. Qin is here.”
“Yes…” Su Jinzhi whispered with his head down. From an angle that others could not see, his lips were slightly hooked. He ignored the sighs of other waiters behind him and pushed the food cart away.
Because of his appearance, Su Jinzhi has been talked about since he embarked on this cruise ship. Even though he maintains the image of “pure and kind” little white lotus set by the system to an extreme, there is absolutely no sign of collapse, but he can’t stop his colleagues’ suspicion and contempt.
What can he do? After all, he was born in the interstellar age, a place without ugly people.
At that time, most human beings had been genetically modified. Not only did they have perfect looks as if God elaborately fabricated them, but also a strong body like steel and a century-long life.
But even so, he still died – he died of ineffective rescue.
By 3500 interstellar year, more than half of the organs could be replaced by mechanization, and the medical treatment was highly developed. Few people died of ineffective rescue. Most people only died in wars or sudden deaths.
He was obviously in the hospital, but he still died of ineffective rescue.
Because he is a pure human.
However, it’s no use thinking about this now. He can’t die now anyways.
But even if you can’t die, you will still feel uncomfortable and suffer in pain.
When he reached the 15th floor of the cruise ship, Su Jinzhi’s body slightly shook. He leaned against the wall and took a deep breath. He bit the tip of his tongue and pressed down the disgusting feeling of surging up his throat. Then he moved on.

“Are you not comfortable host?” Su Jin walked footsteps paused for a second. The system that is said to be bound to his soul spoke. The rigid mechanical voice was unique to the youth’s ears. Su Jinzhi immediately recognized that it was No. 0. It said, “as long as you hurry to Mr. Qin’s side, you will be very comfortable.”
“I got it.” Su Jinzhi responded coldly, “you talk too much.”
Anyone who has been repeatedly hearing “do the task quickly or you will die in pain” would not be in a good mood even after three months——especially people like Su Jinzhi who want to live, especially those like him who are afraid of death.
“Ying ying ying…” No. 0 was scolded by the host and left with some sobs.
Su Jinzhi listened to No. 0’s sobs for a while and felt a bit guilty. Although he knew that this was just an inherent procedure set by an AI, he could not help but feel some sadness.
But when Su Jinzhi saw what Mr. Qin looked like, he didn’t want No. 0 to leave, he wanted to pull it back and beat it to death.
“Can you even do anything?”
Seeing Qin Yezhou’s appearance, the teapot Su Jinzhi was holding tilted and spilled onto another teacup on the side. Then, a bodyguard standing beside Qin Yezhou pushed him away so hard that he had to take a few steps back to stabilize himself.
“S-Sorry…” Su Jinzhi quickly bowed his head and apologized for his mistake. His hands were hanging on his side, and they were close to his thighs.
The young man hung his head down, and the black hair of the crow was soft on his forehead. His face was as white as paper. His long eyes were trembling with fear and panic. The young man looked like a white camellia with morning dew. He looked very pitiful, making him unable to scold him anymore.
So when the person who pushed him opened his mouth, he didn’t have the heart to scold him.
Qin Yezhou, who was in a wheelchair, took the towel from another bodyguard and slowly wiped the water on his leg. He completely ignored Su Jinzhi during the whole process——like that person.
