918 Forced Downtime

    Although Jiang Fei could not woo 10,000 ladies as instructed by 0541, at least he had a rough idea on how to approach the issue.

    "Captain, I have violated the system restrictions. I will experience a forced downtime for seventy-two hours. During this period, please look after yourself." Although 0541 tried very hard to avoid violating the restrictions, the way it had hinted Jiang Fei still resulted in an indirect violation. Fortunately, it had not directly revealed the hint to Jiang Fei and was therefore forced to experience only three days of downtime.

    "Oh." Jiang Fei did not expect that 0541 would be punished. However, when Jiang Fei wanted to say something, he realized that 0541 was no longer responding. It must have already entered the state of forced downtime.

    "It's probably good for you to take a rest now." Jiang Fei sighed. As there was nothing urgent that Jiang Fei needed to deal with at the moment, and battles would not take place any time soon, 0541's forced downtime would not affect him too greatly.

    After taking a bath, Jiang Fei started pondering. Although 0541's hint was very general, Jiang Fei now had a rough idea of what he needed to do.

    According to Jiang Fei's prediction, 0541 needed him to win over the heart of one particular lady. Even if the lady would not genuinely love him, he needed to at least make her Reputation toward him reach the Infatuated state. By doing so, the lady would whole-heartedly assist Jiang Fei during the special circumstance 0541 mentioned would take place.

    As Jiang Fei had the Title of Romeo and the Dragon God's nearly impossible quest, gaining female Reputation points was not a difficult task for him. However, the problem was that Jiang Fei did not know who this particular lady was. Jiang Fei did not want to woo so many females at once as he was already greatly occupied by the females around him now. If he really tried to woo 10,000 ladies at once, he would probably want to commit suicide at some point.

    Jiang Fei had a few thoughts about this unknown lady. Firstly, she would not be one of the existing female figures around Jiang Fei. Otherwise, 0541 would not be urging him as it did. As the Reputation of these females toward Jiang Fei had already reached the Infatuated state, there was no need for him to increase any more Reputation points with them.

    Based on Jiang Fei's guess, this particular lady would also not be too far away from him. Otherwise, 0541 would not be so confident that Jiang Fei would be able to find her with a 95% success rate as long as he completed the task of wooing 10,000 ladies.

    However, the lady would also not be very close to Jiang Fei as 0541 still asked him to woo quite a number of women.

    "Damn. Who the heck is this girl?" Jiang Fei frowned. Although he had a rough idea of what he needed to do, the scope was still very broad.

    "I need to ask 0541 a few more questions after it is reactivated. If I can narrow down on the target area, I don't mind letting it rest for a few more days." Jiang Fei finally gave up on figuring it out on his own. After all, the scope was too broad. It was unrealistic for him to go with the scattershot approach.

    After a little longer, Jiang Fei's family members gradually woke up. As soon as they finished having breakfast, trouble came knocking at the door.

    Knock! Knock! Knock!

    The sound of someone knocking on the door could be heard.

    "I'll get it," Shang Guanqi stood up and said. After spending so much time with Jiang Fei's family, Shang Guanqi had naturally become assimilated into the family. She was treated as if she was Jiang Fei's biological sister.

    "Is this Mr. Jiang Fei's house?" An unfamiliar man stood at the door. He did not seem to exhibit any energy wave and was clearly a normal human being.

    "That's right. Who are you looking for?" Shang Guanqi asked confusedly.

    "Is Mr. Jiang Fei home?" The stranger asked.

    "Oh, come on in." Shang Guanqi let the person into the house. She then shouted into the living room, "Ah Fei, somebody's looking for you."

    "I'm coming!" Jiang Fei answered as he walked over.

    "Who are you?" Jiang Fei was surprised as he did not recognize the stranger.

    "Hehe, nice to meet you, Mr. Jiang. My surname is Zhang. My name is Zhang Song." The stranger smiled as he spoke.

    "Oh." Jiang Fei nodded. He immediately realized who this was. This was the Zhang family's housemaster.

    Jiang Fei used to liaise with Zhang Yangxu from the Zhang family and therefore knew quite a lot about the Zhang family through him.

    Jiang Fei still felt slightly guilty about his history with the Zhang family. He had once stolen all of the Zhang family's Planet Namek energy weapons from their storage.

    Although the entire Braveheart technically belonged to Jiang Fei, his act of stealing still made him feel guilty when he finally met the housemaster from whom Jiang Fei had stolen. He felt a little bit awkward about it now.

    "Why have you come here to find me?" Jiang Fei asked.

    "Here's the thing. The Manda Group has been taken over by the military. Should we discuss further the potion trade?" Zhang Song was obviously not here to only discuss the potion trade with Jiang Fei.

    Now that the Manda Group had been taken over by the military, and whether Han Tianyu was alive or not was still unknown, Jiang Fei's working relationship with the Manda Group was naturally terminated. Zhang Song had the objective of replacing Han Tianyu as the manager of relationships between Jiang Fei, the martial artists, and the leaders of the normal human's world.

    The Han family was able to grow so quickly in the past, mainly because they had the support of the martial artists. As Han Tianyu was the bridge between the Martial Art Alliance and the normal human's world, the Han family was able to grow their power without much resistance. Although nobody knew what had happened to the Han family, Han Tianyu's father was still rewarded very lucratively ever since the military had taken over the Manda Group. From this fact alone, Zhang Song was certain that he would benefit from establishing a good relationship with the Martial Art Alliance.

    If this was accomplished, not only would the Zhang family be able to expand its powers greatly, it would also eliminate the risk of ever being entirely annihilated. The worst that could happen to the Zhang family was losing all of its financial capabilities.

    As the housemaster of the Zhang family, Zhang Song was naturally unable to resist such temptations. Therefore, instead of sending Zhang Yangxu over to find Jiang Fei, Zhang Song personally came to negotiate with Jiang Fei.

    "Ehh." Jiang Fei remained silent for a while. To Jiang Fei, cooperating with the Zhang family was not of any significance. Firstly, Jiang Fei did not care about monetary benefits. Although Jiang Fei was able to easily produce truckloads of the potions the Zhang family wanted, he personally did not care about earning any money from them.

    However, Jiang Fei believed that there were still some benefits to be gained by working with the Zhang family. Firstly, a large sum of money might be needed if Han Tianyu was able to take over the Winter Islands. Secondly, Jiang Fei also hoped to train a capable manager who could represent him under various circumstances instead of always having to personally show up everywhere.
