Chapter 1 Evolving Sand Table
"Really no longer consider it? If you are not satisfied with the salary, you can talk about it..."
"I have decided."
"...Well, the door of the company is always open to you."
Ten minutes later, Lin Tuo, carrying a backpack, stepped out of the office building gate, stood by the road, turned his head and glanced at the building behind him, slightly sad.
Lintuo University studied advertising design. With talent, diligence and luck, he made a name early and successfully joined this well-known company in the industry.
In the past two years, I have taken a few big projects and are well appreciated. With some private work, I have saved hundreds of thousands of savings. If we continue to develop, we have a bright future.
However, today he finally resigned.
The rented house had already been returned, and the luggage was checked by a special person. Lin Tuo took a taxi and left Yangcheng City.
After more than an hour, he stood at the foot of the mountain from his hometown.
Lishan is a not-so-famous mountain. It is part of the Taihe Mountain Range. It stands on the outskirts of Yangcheng City. Because there are no scenic spots and lack of development, it still maintains a rare simplicity.
In summer, the mountain peaks are lush and lush, and fog rises every rainy day. Lin Tuo grew up here, primary school and junior high school, and studied in the town at the foot of the mountain. Just counting, he has not returned for a long time.
Walking along the mountain road, he soon set foot on the mountain and saw a detached house on the mountainside.
Two advances, classical style, and a large area, only when I approached, I found that it was already a little run-down.
This is Lin Tuo’s hometown. He grew up in this house. Because his parents died early, he was brought up by his grandfather. His grandfather ran a martial arts gym and recruited his disciples to practice martial arts.
When Lin Tuo was a child, there were still people who learned martial arts as a teacher, but as the times changed, the old-style martial arts hall gradually disappeared, and his grandfather was sad and depressed.
The biggest regret before he died was that the family martial arts hall finally had his hands, and Quanxia had no face to meet his ancestors.
Therefore, Lin Tuo made a secret decision early on, and after earning the start-up capital, he would return to reopen the martial arts hall and fulfill his grandfather's last wish. This is also the reason why he resigned.
"Squeaky." Unscrew the lock, push the gate open, and walk through the quiet and deserted martial arts field. Lin Tuo sighed as he looked at the dense weeds between the rocks, "It looks like I need to clean it up. , And will have to renovate later."
Thinking about his future plans, Lin Tuo immediately found the broom and tried his best to clean the house.
"Ahem." When he pushed open a big house in the backyard, he was choked with dust and coughed. He fanned it and waited for ventilation before he walked into the old house. He was shocked to find that the roof was due to age. In disrepair, a big hole was broken.
"No..." With a helpless sigh, Lin Tuo retracted his gaze, and was surprised to find that the room was empty, with only a huge table, empty, covered with dust, and didn't know what it was for.
"Why don't you remember that there is still such a big table at home." Muttering, Lin Tuo stretched out his hand to touch the corner of the table with some sentimentality.
Immediately, it felt like the finger had been pierced by something sharp, and as his blood merged with this huge table, suddenly the dark old house was illuminated.
[DiDi-blood medium is detected, the derivative sand table is restarting]
Before Lin Tuo could react, he heard a mysterious message in his mind. What was even more surprising to him was that in his field of vision, the old big table covered in dust actually propped up an almost invisible one. Of the photomask.
Shake away the dust and become as bright as new.
Not only that, on the originally empty desktop, countless lights and shadows intertwined, changed, and danced. In an instant, they formed a miniature modern city!
Yes, there appeared a city on the entire table that had shrunk several times!
"This is... Yangcheng?" Lin Tuo was stunned at first, and then found out that this city looked familiar.
Observing carefully, he found that it was exactly the same as Yangcheng where he had worked and lived for several years!
High-rise buildings, streets, urban areas, as well as the cars speeding by in the criss-cross streets and alleys, pedestrians... it seems like a lively and prosperous scene.
Lin Tuo even found the building where his company was located at a glance. There were still people coming in and out at the door, just because it was too small to see clearly.
[The evolving sand table is restarted, the location is located, and the "observation mode" is automatically turned on. Observation range: 15,000 square kilometers]
Current position ether concentration: low
In his mind, mysterious information continued to emerge, and then Lin Tuo was stunned to see a semi-transparent virtual panel appearing in his vision.
The panel is extremely simple, with the words "observation mode" written in the most eye-catching position.
"Ether concentration" is displayed at the bottom, followed by the word "low".
Other than that, there seems to be nothing.
"What is this? Black technology? Observation mode? Could it be that...I am observing Yangcheng in reality? The observation range is 15,000...This is roughly equivalent to the area of Yangcheng."
Because of learning martial arts since childhood, Lin Tuo quickly calmed down from consternation and analyzed.
"But... how is this possible? A real city is shrunk and placed on a table? Sandbox...this is the meaning of sandbox?"
"Unbelievable." Lin Tuo couldn't calm down, he always felt unthinkable. He hesitated, he tried to get close to this "sand table" and observe carefully.
The entire sand table indeed encompasses the urban area and the surrounding area, but was cut flat on the edge. Lin Tuo noticed that a transport vehicle driving on the national highway had left the observation area of the sand table and disappeared out of thin air.
A dark cloud was still floating above the entire sand table, which obscured the vision to a certain extent, Lin Tuo thought, it is indeed cloudy today.
At this time, suddenly, an Air China passenger plane appeared out of thin air from the edge of the sand table, flying straight above the clouds, like a model, flying over the city.
"Is it true?" Lin Tuo breathed tightly. He felt that the dark clouds were a little obtrusive, so he subconsciously bent over and approached the city from above, wanting to see the details clearly.
at the same time.
In Yangcheng, not far from the mountain, it was noon at this moment. Office workers squeezed the elevators downstairs to prepare to go out for dinner. On the street, couriers riding bicycles to deliver food also flocked.
Under Lin Tuo's original company building, the manager who approved his resignation request had just walked out of the first floor, only to feel that the light in the city changed suddenly, and the originally gloomy sky became brighter.
Soon, I heard an exclamation.
"Look at the sky!"
"Fuck, what is that?!"
"I'm not mistaken, am I? What is in the sky...how...a face appeared?!"
"Snap! Where's my phone?"
On the street, countless people raised their heads, following the changing light and looking up at the sky above the city.
The manager was stunned, and also raised his head, his eyes suddenly widened, and even his mouth opened subconsciously, showing his inner unrest.
I saw that over the city, the dark clouds suddenly rolled over, as if disturbed by some mysterious force, and then, in the clouds, gradually "rubbed" a fuzzy human face!
The face was made of cloud flocs, lifelike, as if it were real, the position of the eyeholes showed two cavities, and it was majesticly overlooking the entire land.
