Chapter 30.1 Hand in hand

“Senior, you can’t train again tomorrow. You have to give your fingers time to recover.” Yan Hao checked Sheng Heng’s palm again and seeing that the redness and swelling on his knuckles had mostly gone down, let go of his hand.

Sheng Heng was a little uncomfortable when the kneading sensation suddenly disappeared: “Aren’t you going to massage it anymore?”

“Huh?” Yan Hao froze for a moment, unable to react.

“It’s nothing.” Sheng Heng returned to his senses in time and shook his head calmly.

Cheng Wenkang, who had been watching the whole thing, could hardly keep on watching. He guessed that his boss had been obsessed with their little junior the entire ten minutes he had been massaging his hand. It was so embarrassing.

“Then don’t train tomorrow.” Yan Hao emphasized again.


“Tomorrow night, you will have to soak your hand in the medicinal liquid again just like you did earlier. I bought an extra packet at the medicine shop.” Saying this, Yan Hao turned to get the herb packet but discovered that it was empty and then he suddenly remembered that the extra packet of herbs had just been used up by Cheng Wenkang.

“……” Cheng Wenkang.

I informed you when I took the herb packet yet you’ve forgotten me so quickly. Just how much have you guys forgotten me?

“I’ll email you the recipe for the herb packets later. Senior, you’ll have to go to the medicine shop tomorrow to buy some more for backup.” Yan Hao said.

“You’re giving me the recipe for the herb packet?” Sheng Heng’s voice rose a few notches out of surprise.

“If I don’t give it to you, how are you going to buy the medicine?”

His little junior could really never get the point. For a moment Sheng Heng was dumbfounded, then he suddenly let out a muffled laugh.

“Senior, what are you laughing at, did I say something wrong?” Yan Hao’s intuition told him that Sheng Heng was laughing at him.

“No, I’m just happy that my fingers are now saved.” Sheng Heng stopped laughing, but there was a softness in his eyes.

“This medicine can only provide relief, it can’t cure it completely unless you stop using your fingers so much.” Yan Hao cautioned sternly.

“Hmm, I understand.” Sheng Heng paused and then said, “The recipe for this herb packet, is it just another solved math problem for you?”

When Yan Hao had given him the data model for the advanced sedative last time, he had said that for him, the data model was just a math problem he had solved.


Sure enough.

Laughing, Sheng Heng couldn’t help but raise his hand to rub Yan Hao’s already messy hair, “Has anyone ever said that you really have no business acumen?”

“Senior, you haven’t washed your hands yet.” Yan Hao resisted and broke away from Sheng Heng’s ravaging of his hair, “I don’t have any business acumen. Except for math, I’m not very good at anything else.”

“That’s okay. I’m not bad at business, so I’ll help you.” Sheng Heng laughed.

“Boss, are you planning to sell the recipe for this herb packet?” Cheng Wenkang reacted immediately.

“It’s true that this herb packet can be sold and people will definitely rush to buy it, but…” Sheng Heng looked at Yan Hao and said seriously, “Xiao Hao, I don’t recommend you sell this herb pack. I hope you can publish it on Starnet for free.”

“What?!” Cheng Wenkang was shocked. What was Boss doing? Such an important intellectual property right yet he wanted their little junior to publish it for free. Screwing your sweetheart like this, do you still want to pursue him?

“Xiao Hao, your herb pack is good in that it can be used by anyone but it’s also bad in that respect.” As if he was afraid that Yan Hao would misunderstand, Sheng Heng followed up by explaining, “Anything that anyone can use is most likely to be popular but the more popular it is, the less secrets it has. The recipe for your herb packet is something that anyone who has bought it once will be able to grasp. Of course, I could go to the Ministry of Military Affairs if I had to sell it and they’d certainly be happy to pay a fortune to buy out your recipe but they’d eventually release it to the public.”

“Instead of letting the Ministry of Military Affairs announce it to the public, why don’t you announce it yourself? You might lose some money this way, but it will be of great benefit to your future development.” Sheng Heng told him.

“That’s right.” Cheng Wenkang also woke up at this point, slapping his thigh, “Little junior, with your brain, there are many ways to make money in the future, so it would be a shame to miss out on something like this that would make you gain the goodwill of the entire Federation’s mech warriors.”

“Hao Hao, what do you think?” This was what Sheng Heng thought.

Yan Hao had long been confused by Sheng Heng’s analysis. He hadn’t thought about that at all. He had only gone to the pharmacy to buy a hand injury herb packet and had bought the herbs according to the recipe he was used to using in his previous life. He hadn’t had time to think about what to do with it yet, but if he wanted to make money from it, there was no way he could do so, because if he wanted to make money from a calculated formula, he had many improved formulas from his previous life, and he could even steal Yan Fei’s research if he wanted to.

However Yan Hao didn’t want to do that. As a researcher, he didn’t care to steal other people’s research– not in his previous life and not in this one. On the first day of his rebirth, he had told himself that he would only be himself in this life. He wouldn’t interfere with Yan Fei’s development and he would also never let him influence him again either.

“Okay.” Almost without much hesitation, Yan Hao agreed.

In his previous life, when he had researched this formula, he had also published it on Starnet at the first opportunity, so even if Sheng Heng hadn’t mentioned it, he would have still published the formula online when he went back.

“It’s just that I’m a student of the Mecha Building Department now so I don’t think anyone will believe me if I publish this recipe.” Yan Hao worried. In the previous life, he’d had a bad reputation, but he had been a real Senior Pharmacist, hence outsiders would question his character, but not his research results, but this life was different.

“It’s not that difficult if you want to publish it. I can get a few authorities in the field of pharmacy to forward proof for you. But if it’s done this way, your talent in Pharmacy would probably have to be made public.” Sheng Heng reminded. He remembered that Yan Hao had said that he didn’t want to return to the pharmacy profession and so even the fact that he had worked out the formula model for the advanced sedatives had been kept secret by the Ministry of Military Affairs as requested.

“What’s wrong with that? I think it’s good for our little junior to study pharmacy.” Cheng Wenkang felt deeply that Yan Hao’s talent for pharmacy was stronger than his talent for mechs, at least for now.

“No, it’s better to publish it anonymously.” Yan Hao didn’t want to go back to the same way as in his previous life, so he shook his head in refusal.

“Alright then, I’ll arrange it.” Sheng Heng had already guessed that Yan Hao would decide to do this.

“Then I’ll trouble Senior.” Yan Hao smiled gratefully when he heard that Sheng Heng was going to help him.

The smile on Sheng Heng’s face grew a little stronger, but at that moment, the light brain on Yan Hao’s hand suddenly rang, a message coming in. Yan Hao clicked on it, glanced at it, then stood up, “He Shao is looking for me, I should go back.”

“I’ll see you off.” Sheng Heng followed suit, standing up.

“There’s no need, it’s very close by, and Senior’s hand hasn’t healed yet so it’s better to go home early to rest.” Yan Hao refused.

  1. Well sweety I’m personally not okay with that anonymous publication cause its your own creation without Feish*t involvement…you should got at leat merit in this one 😩😩😩

    Well I’m not the author or a character so my opinion didn’t matter lol 🥲

    Anyway Thank you for the translating this superbstory ! You it beautifully 😄

    1. It’s for his peace of mind. While he’ll definitely get honor and likings by a lot of people, but among those people will also be jacka**es like his ‘brother’ and his cronies, and those jerks that are simply jerks without any relevance to them both. He’s not strong enough to withstand that yet, not to mention shameless people are reckless as well. It’ll be better to show it when he’s high enough that those people will be defeated by passerby(s) in a scolding war. After all, at least 20 years of mental and emotional abuse won’t get resolved so easily.

  2. “It’s not difficult if you want to publish it. I can get a few authorities in the field of pharmacy to forward proof for you.”

    See, this is why you write paper. So that you can have readily made prove and argument to back up your research. So that it can convince people, including those pharmacy expert.
