BATCFO Chapter 5.2

“Classmate, can I ask you a question?” Yun Xingze glanced at the beta girl who spoke to him just now, and asked seriously, “If the mental strength is C-level, is it possible to activate a B-level pulse device?”

The girl was dumbfounded by his question for a while, and then she hurriedly replied: “It is theoretically possible.”

A huge joy rose in Yun Xingze’s heart.

However, before he had time to speak, the girl’s next sentence surprised him. “However, the mecha drivers who can do that level are all mecha geniuses, and there are barely any within the entire empire.”

Yun Xingze stared blankly at her.

The girl saw Yun Xingze’s shock, thinking he had been unduly affect, and hurriedly added: “For us ordinary people, slowly tempering and upgrading, is also a good choice.”

After a while, Yun Xingze nodded. “En, thank you.”

At this moment, Lu Ranxu called on the optical brain.

After Yun Xingze picked it up, he heard Lu Ranxu’s anxious voice: “Where are you Xingze! Mecha practical class is about to begin! Don’t forget to arrive the classroom five minutes earlier!”

Hearing the words, Yun Xingze hastily ran out of the tempering room and in the direction of the training hall.

The girl looked at his departing back with some sympathy in her heart-he must have been stimulated by the mental strength rating, and had a delusion he could control mechas. It’s too pitiful.

When Yun Xingze reached the door of the training room, out of breath, Zhuo Feiyue’s voice came: “This time you arrived in time. En, there is progress.” There was a bit of teasing in his tone.

Yun Xingze was already too tired. Sweat slipped from the tip of his nose. He panted and walked into the classroom. He was planning to cruise through the class when he suddenly heard Zhuo Feiyue say: “I’ll let you experience mecha in this class.”

Yun Xingze looked at the teacher in surprise. The alphas around him were even more excited, and couldn’t help screaming out one by one.

“Really?!”

“Teacher, take out the mecha!”

“Quick, hurry, let me try…”

Yun Xingze didn’t expect that even if he hadn’t saved enough money to buy a mecha, the chance to drive a mecha came first.

He will definitely use a mecha this time!

Zhuo Feiyue took out a camouflaged storage cube from his bag, asked the students to step back, and then threw the mecha cube in the open. It quickly unfolded and turned into a five or six-meter high camouflage-painted training mecha.

The training mecha is a small mecha with very basic functions. It is not equipped with any weapons. It only has a brake engine and a jet engine, which can help students familiarize themselves with some basic movements.

The alphas were eager to try, and couldn’t wait to go up and show their skills immediately. The crowd kept squeezing in the direction of the mecha.

Yun Xingze’s exhausted body suddenly had energy. He pushed aside the students in front of him, wandering flexibly between the gaps, and finally reached the first row after all the hardships.

Zhuo Feiyue turned on the light screen, enlarged the screen, and began to explain the precautions after entering the cockpit.

Yun Xingze listened very carefully, although this knowledge was all kindergarten to him.

After finishing the precautions, Zhuo Feiyue planned to let the students get on mechas.

“This is a difficult operation B-class mecha.” Zhuo Feiyue looked at the class. “That is, students with spiritual power higher than B-level can try it…”

Before he had finished, countless hands shot in the air.

Yun Xingze raised his hand while bouncing on his feet, and yelled loudly: “Teacher Zhuo! I want to try!”

Seeing Yun Xingze raise his hand, Oriel mocked: “What are you doing running over for fun? Do you know how difficult it is to use a mecha?”

Yun Xingze ignored him and kept waving at Zhuo Feiyue.

Zhuo Feiyue ignored him and pointed his finger at Oriel: “Try it.”

Oriel lost to Yun Xingze last time in a fight. He was looking for a chance to regain face and walked up proudly, accepting the baptism of everyone’s envious eyes.

Afterwards, he quickly climbed into the mecha and entered the cockpit.

His mental power is A-level, and driving a B-class mech is very easy for him.

Throwing away the time to wear the driving suit and helmet, Oriel activated the pulse device in less than ten seconds. When the mecha detected the driver’s mental strength, it activated the brake engine and the energy light followed and lit up.

“Wow, that’s great, succeeded in one shot!”

“I heard that Oriel could drive mechas before enrolling. We can’t compare with him.”

“Look, the mecha moved!”

Oriel controlled the mecha to talk forward slowly, and performed a few simple movements by the way, completing them very smoothly.

Such a level may not be a big deal in other classes in the department, but in Class E, it’s considered a top student.

Yun Xingze watched the mecha walking in front of him, the ground vibrating with each step, his eyes glued to it.

After Oriel came down, Yun Xingze walked up to Zhuo Feiyue while everyone was applauding him, looked at him seriously and said, “Teacher, I want to try.”

Zhuo Feiyue always thought this kid was joking, but he didn’t expect he was serious. After a two-second pause, he said, “But the difficulty of the mecha is B class, you can’t start it.”

Lu Ranxu was also frightened by Yun Xingze’s actions, and hurriedly ran over to discourage him: “Xingze, it’s not too late to try after you improve your mental power.”

“Yun Xingze, you shouldn’t force it.” Oriel, surrounded by other students like the sun, mocked Yun Xingze. “With your mental strength, why go up there? To visit?”

There was a burst of laughter around.

Everyone knew that Yun Xingze couldn’t drive this mecha.

Zhuo Feiyue looked at Yun Xingze helplessly: “I’m glad you finally became interested in the mecha class, but you are not qualified yet, so please exercise your mental strength first.”

“Teacher Zhuo, can you please allow me to… “Yun Xingze said seriously, “Go up and take a look?”

Everyone was taken aback.

After being mocked by Oriel, Yun Xingze didn’t care and insisted on getting on the mecha.

Zhuo Feiyue did not expect Yun Xingze to be so persistent.

The training mecha has a protection mechanism for novices. If it detects that the driver’s mental strength is insufficient, the energy light will not turn on.

“I don’t know why you want to go so badly. Don’t you have a lot of mechas in your house?” Zhuo Feiyue sighed. But in the end, he lost to Yun Xingze’s sincere eyes, and waved his hand. “Okay, you go up quickly.”

With Zhuo Feiyue’s permission, Yun Xingze finally showed a happy smile, like a child who received a long-awaited gift. Nodding vigorously with a warm and sincere smile, he ran all the way to the back of the mecha.

Upon seeing him, Oriel sneered: “Yun Xingze, can you climb up?”

As soon as the voice fell, everyone saw the boy grabbing the most stable position on the back of the mecha and crawling neatly into the cockpit.

Oriel felt a little embarrassed so he hurriedly changed his statement: “Yun Xingze, hurry down, don’t waste everyone’s time!”

“Why are you speaking so much nonsense?” Lu Ranxu looked at Oriel coldly. “Your mecha is voice-controlled?”

“You!” Oriel erupted in anger. Smiling disdainfully he shot a look of contempt at the mecha. “No matter what you say, even if it’s Tianwang Lao Zi1Think some bigshot / god who’s super skilled. here today, Yun Xingze is a waste that can’t activate the training mecha!”

Yun Xingze could hear the noisy voices underneath.

Some people were questioning, some people were encouraging, but none of these sounds were heard above the drum-like pounding of his heart at the moment.

When he was putting on the nano suit, his fingers trembled slightly, and he almost didn’t button the button.

This feeling of excitement slowly subsided until Yun Xingze put on the helmet and connected the spiritual bond.

As long as he successfully activates the Class B pulse device like in the tempering room, the dream of driving a mecha that he has been longing for since his previous life will be realized.

Yun Xingze closed his eyes and began to repeat the process of using his mental power in the tempering room.

However, this time did not seem to go so smoothly.

After all, the real pulse device is quite different from the simulated pulse device. The circuits are also much more complicated, and the spiritual requirements of the driver are slightly higher.

What’s more, Yun Xingze’s current behavior is performing leapfrog manipulation!

As time passed, Yun Xingze tried to adjust his breathing, trying to find a balance.

Outside of the mech, Zhuo Feiyue’s eyes were puzzled-if he was just taking a tour, why isn’t he coming out yet after so long?

Finally, about five minutes later, Yun Xingze succeeded in filling every bond with spiritual power.

Spiritual power gradually filled every corner of the mecha through these bonds. It is like blood starting from the heart and spreading to the limbs.

Just when Yun Xingze thought he was going to succeed.

He suddenly felt a strong sense of exhaustion.

This week, he trained physical stamina every day, went out early and went back to repair mecha at night, and performed high-intensity mental tempering…

Yun Xingze’s body was almost at its limit.

However, his mental power successfully activated the pulse device.

The energy light flashed suddenly.

Everyone looked at the light on the chest of the mecha in surprise.

“Fuck. How, how did he do it?”

“The energy light just turned on? Was it an illusion?!”

“It really turned on!”

Oriel suddenly became nervous and kept staring at that the energy light.

Dozens of seconds ticked by.

Yun Xingze seemed to have failed.

Oriel heaved a sigh of relief. “I’ll say, how could he activate a mecha?”

The nanosuit was wrapped around Yun Xingze, and the fastenings on the back supported him forcefully, keeping him suspended upright. He closed his eyes, frowning slightly, as sweat ran down his face.

It’s just a little bit…

Just a little bit closer…

He’s so very close to the dream carried over from his previous life…

Yun Xingze resisted the exhaustion, gritted his teeth, using the last traces of mental energy, and pushed it towards the pulse device.

Zhuo Feiyue picked up the PA equipment and shouted to the mecha: “You come down, Yun…”

Halfway through the conversation, his voice suddenly got stuck.

The noise of the audience fell silent at this moment.

Because they saw that the energy light of the training mech was really on. The orange lights were abundant, dazzling and shining, reflecting in everyone’s pupils.

Like a sleeping behemoth, it suddenly opened its eyes.

 


Whoo! The mecha turned on! The mecha turned on!

Any guesses what’ll happen next chapter?

    1. komorebi komorebi says:

      …? Not sure I get the crazy till we see the sun reference?

  3. Avatar Sadie Woods says:

    I’m guessing YXZ will pass out, honestly. He’s admirable but also a little too ambitious on this one! He’s already exhausted before even trying to drive this mecha. Still, it proves a good point about his abilities!

    Thanks for your hard work translating!

    1. komorebi komorebi says:

      👀 Did you peek ahead?

    2. Avatar Sekstifire says:

      Yeah, he didn’t know that they would get the chance to drive a Mecha today but doing a bunch of exhausting training right before the class where they also do exhausting training was probably not the smartest idea…

      1. komorebi komorebi says:

        +1.
        Again, YXZ = bear child mecha-con.

  4. Avatar Panda Eyes says:

    Look Teacher!!! YXZ is walking his mecha’s 1st baby step

    N i also agree with #Sadie Woods
    He’ll pass out soon if he keep continuing, but who can blame him? His dream is always to drive mecha so having weak body thanks to disease, despite being a genius in the end he can’t fulfill it

    1. komorebi komorebi says:

      Minor spoiler: he doesn’t take the 1st baby step! (And then acts like a bear child)
