It took Tony more than an hour to wake up slowly.
“Hey! Jackson, haven’t you left yet? Squinting his eyes, Tony felt uncomfortable and confused. But at least he could see Lin Rui in front of him.
“Well, everybody else is gone. I can’t leave you lying like that.” Smiling, Lin Rui, squatting beside Tony and said calmly.
“Oh, the mess this time is really big.” Glancing around, Tony said indifferently. The original luxurious hall has become unrecognizable because his guns destroyed almost every inch of it, this is all money ah!
“Get up, Mr. Stark. What you need most now is rest, not continued use of Iron Man Armor.” Helping Tony up from the ground, Lin Rui quietly persuaded. Palladium has always been in Arc Reactor, but Tony’s constant use of Iron Man Armor speeds up Palladium’s entry into his body and accelerates his death.
With the help of Lin Rui, Tony took off the Iron Man Armor and was supported to the sofa by Lin Rui.
“Hey~ Why didn’t you leave. Seeing me like this now, aren’t you disappointed? Even if I used to be your idol, now the idol image has been destroyed.” Leaning on the sofa, Tony looked at Lin Rui who poured him a glass of water in front of him and asked curiously. Even Pepper and Rhodes have left. Why does this young man decide to stay here to take care of him?
“Mr. Stark, you knew I had no idols. As for me, I didn’t leave, just because I regard you as my friend. And now that my friend is ill, I have to help and take care of him.” Handing the water cup to Tony, Lin Rui answered with a smile.
“Ha-ha, friend? It turns out that you value your friends so much. But why do you think I’m sick? And not really just mad?” After receiving the water from Lin Rui, Tony smiled and asked. He did not tell anyone about Palladium Poisoning so how did Lin Rui perceive his illness.
“Tony, you have the smartest brain in the world. If you’re crazy, the world will lose a great scientist. And don’t you know how bad you look right now?” As he spoke, Lin Rui held a mirror in front of Tony.
Tony’s frequent use of the Iron Man Armor caused the Palladium to infiltrated his body at a faster rate and the degree of poisoning was already high. Dark purple streaks, which were originally visible only on the chest, are now spreading to his neck, where Tony’s blood levels of Palladium Poisoning may have exceeded 30 percent.
Sweeping his pale face in the mirror, Tony waved away the mirror. He doesn’t need anybody’s warning and comfort now, because nobody can save him.
“Mr. Stark, take a rest after drinking this glass of water. I’m sure you’ll get better slowly.” Putting the mirror away, Lin Rui said calmly.
“Well, I really don’t need someone to stay.” Seeing that Lin Rui didn’t seem to leave without watching him drink the water, Tony finally took a sip and drank it all. Having been drinking for so long, there’s a real shortage of water in his body.
“Well, it’s time you left. I’ll ask Happy to take you back. Uh, ~Happy may have gone too… After drinking the water, Tony wanted to send him home. Halfway through, however, he realized that Happy should have left too.
“Don’t worry, Mr. Stark, I drove over. But thank you all the same.” Taking a blanket for Tony, Lin Rui said with a smile. “Well, Mr. Stark, I’ll go back.”
Watching Lin Rui turn around and leave, Tony wraps up his blanket and finally falls asleep. He didn’t know that the water he had just drunk was playing its part by circulating around his body. Soon, the frightening streaks that spread from Tony’s chest slowly shrank back and disappeared.
“Spend 1,000 Reward points to exchange the remaining blueprints of E Grade Aerospace Warship, confirm it or not.”
Back home, Lin Rui redeemed the complete E Grade Aerospace Warship design blueprint from the System Shop. Now that Lin Rui has planned to let Tony make these Warships, it’s easy to convert them now, because Lin Rui is rich now in terms of reward points.
“If I’m going to hand Tony these Aerospace warship design, I have to make sure Tony and I are on the same side. Now S.H.I.E.L.D. is a problem. It seems that Mirage Knight has to get involved.” Looking at the complex blueprint in his mind, Lin Rui thought to himself.
The current S.H.I.E.L.D. is almost under the control of Hydra. Except for a few agents who are loyal to Nick Fury, the whole S.H.I.E.L.D. is a big fire pit. Lin Rui doesn’t want to have too much contact with them. Even if he wants to deal with S.H.I.E.L.D., he has to wait until the remaining forces of Hydra are removed. However, this is not something that can be done in a short time. So, Lin Rui didn’t want Nick Fury to simply recruit Tony.
“But, what excuse should I use to find Tony? The last time I helped him defeat Obadiah, it seemed that Tony couldn’t fully believe what I said. It was a bit annoying!” Lin Rui wanted to use Mirage Knight’s identity to tell Tony that he had to look for his dad’s things in S.H.I.E.L.D. for the new elements to replace Palladium, but could not find any good excuses.
“Forget it! It’s no big deal. I’ll go straight to him and tell him, “It’s his problem if he believes it or not!” After thinking about it for a long time, Lin Rui didn’t think of any good way. Finally, he simply didn’t think of it. Sometimes it’s better to be simple and direct.
Just as Lin Rui was worrying about how to find an excuse to meet Tony as Mirage Knight, he didn’t know that Tony was looking for him and Daredevil. Knowing that he was dying, Tony wanted to find someone who could share his responsibilities and shoulder the burden of protecting civilians.
Not to mention that Lin Rui is upset about Tony’s affairs. Tony, who had a hangover night, has slowly woken up from the sofa. However, when Tony woke up, he noticed that his body was somewhat different. Tony’s pain from Palladium Poisoning, which had afflicted him for nearly a month, suddenly disappeared. If Tony hadn’t felt the cold Arc Reactor on his chest, he would have thought he was dead.
“J.A.R.V.I.S! Open the window!” Feeling abnormal, Tony suddenly shouted.
“Yes, sir.” The ever-present J.A.R.V.I.S. quickly opened the window behind Tony, and the morning sun shone in.
Tony immediately jumped up from the sofa and walked to the window in a few steps, then pulled his shirt off to reveal the position of the Arc Reactor in his chest. There, the dark purple stripes, which were supposed to be all over his skin, have disappeared as if they had never appeared before.
“This is!… What happened?!” Tony could not believe it when he saw the change in his chest. He reached out and touched it twice. It seemed that the toxins were really gone.
Instead of standing at the window and admiring his chest too much, Tony rushed to the workbench, where he had an instrument for measuring Palladium levels in his body. Tony waited nervously for the test results.
