Low Dimensional Game Chapter 36
Lu Zhiyu sat in front of a bar in his hotel in London, wearing a newly made suit he had ordered. It was custom made by an old and famous shop frequented by the riches. He wanted to avoid wearing famous brands again because he was called "parvenu" with his luxury-branded outfit in Russia. He was wearing a very expensive watch that cost him fifteen thousand euros. Lu Zhiyu had spent one hundred and fifty thousand euros, or close to a million yuan. Even though he did not know why the watch was worth that much, it was expensive, and Lu Zhiyu just wanted to enjoy the feeling of spending money like water!
He had spent almost a month traveling the world. He had arrived first in London. When he was learning English at young age, the first book his mother bought him was Harry Potter, and he became very interested in England. Because of this, he made England and Scotland his first stops. He had toured every place that Harry Potter featured.
After that, he went to Seattle and experienced the captivating night scenes and sunrise, finally seeing the famous Space Needle for himself. He spent a few days in Las Vegas, spending most of his time in the casino. He first lost ten million dollars, and then won it all back with another ten million more, shocking his fellow gamblers.
After Vegas he headed to Kyoto and visited the famous shrines and witnessed the wonders of geisha performances. In the Maldives, he spent his days on the beach, swimming with the dolphins, getting massages, and dancing with the natives on the beach.
He also went to eastern Africa, watching the sunset from a hot air balloon in the Serengeti National Park. He went to admire the ancient architecture in Marrakesh. Then he went to Russia's Saint Petersburg and saw the ancient palaces, taking in the Russian architecture and artistic atmosphere!
On this trip, he could spend as much money as he wanted and had the time of his life. He only flew first class, lived in five star hotels and ordered the most expensive food and wine. He tipped extravagantly. He drove only luxury cars. He had pretty models accompany him on the yacht parties at sea. He finally knew what it was like to be rich. He did everything he could think of. He had done everything he wanted to do when he was poor. He let down his prudence as if he managed to free himself from the restraints he placed on himself in the past with his new identity.
Because of his long hair, coupled with his appearance, it was hard for someone to tell if he was male or female. Lu Zhiyu opted for a very energetic crew cut, but would often still be mistaken as a woman. For example, in the bar Lu Zhiyu was at now, there were still a good amount of men looking at him, making Lu Zhiyu rather unhappy.
"Anthony! You're back." Someone tapped Lu Zhiyu on the shoulder and called. Lu Zhiyu instantly turned and saw a foreign woman with dark hair sitting down next to him. She waved at the middle aged bartender, "Ayer, a glass of whiskey!"
The bartender shrugged his shoulders, "Coming right up!"
Lu Zhiyu turned to look at the beauty, "Zoe, you found me as soon as I got back. Also my name is not Anthony, you gave me the name, but I haven't accepted it yet!"
The woman was called Zoe Sharp, the manager of the hotel. Judging from her last name, she was likely much more than just a small hotel manager. Lu Zhiyu didn't want to get tangled up with someone like her. But she'd been constantly hovering around him ever since he moved into this hotel. She smiled at Lu Zhiyu and said, "Why won't you accept it, your chinese name is too hard to pronounce. What is it again? Something like Mo Ao?"
Lu Zhiyu lifted a brow, "It's Mu Tao. Alright, you can just call me Anthony. Even though I think it makes me sound like a wizard or something."
Zoe looked at Lu Zhiyu, "How long are you going to stay this time?"
Lu Zhiyu thought for a moment, "I'm thinking about buying a house in London and staying here for the time being. Do you have any suggestions? I want a quieter, bigger house!"
Zoe said in surprise, "You're staying in London? That's great! I've told you, this is the best city in the world!"
Lu Zhiyu smiled, "Well, I think that this is a good place for a wizard to live in."
The two talked for a while, then Lu Zhiyu returned to his room. Lately, he felt his mind power had been quite unsettled, as though he was approaching a breakthrough. He had only come to that point once before, when his mind power reached seven Source Form units (SFU). That breakthrough had allowed him to start using his mind power on people and objects outside of himself.
Counting his time in the dimensional castle, he had spent several years practicing his mind power. Because of this, his mind power was much stronger now, reaching 127 SFU. When he used his mind power before this, he could only pick up very light objects, like plastic water cups. As he worked more on strengthening his power, he began to be able to move heavier things like books and water bottles. Now, he could easily use his mind to pick up bigger objects such as the wooden chairs and table in his hotel room. When he released his mind power, it could cover a larger area instead of being restricted to just a few feet around him.
He sat on his bed and closed his eyes with his mind power enveloping his body. He saw himself floating a few inches above the bed, suspended in the air. Lu Zhiyu opened his eyes and looked at himself, "I guess I can fly now!"
He took a few laps around the room and shook his head. "This won't do, flying is too slow. I would rather run!"
Lu Zhiyu landed on his bed. Over the days, Lu Zhiyu had felt as though his mind power had reached a bottleneck. He felt his mind power and his brain syncing. This weird phenomenon had attracted Lu Zhiyu's attention. He felt that something special would happen when he finally reached that stage. His mind power had a lot of uses he was just discovering, even though it wasn't at the supernatural level he was expecting yet. He was excited to see what this breakthrough held for him.
He closed his eyes, and with his mind power, immediately opened the door to the different dimensional spaces using the timeglass in his mind. He quickly entered the zero-dimension space and started meditating. He had already developed a system of how he liked to meditate. He had a set of experienced and very mature method. He could stabilize his mental structures within the zero-dimension space, and extract Source Form to strengthen his mind power to the largest extent. This was why it only took him a few years to reach the level he was currently at.
