Chapter 13: A Quite Day

Von and Ku had set out right as the sun started rising, afraid that zombies may start gathering back towards the outdoor market.

Their morning were basically spent walking and peeking through corners and roads cautiously. Although it got tiring fast, they managed to avoid a few groups of zombies by walking around while killing the lone zombies through a little stealth.

Luckily, the nearby power plant was a safe distance away from the city, situated around a quite town made up of fields of grass and crops.

The climate and environment of the town has made the place beneficial for a solar powered power station. The days were filled with unresting heat from the sun, even throughout winter.

Solar power was the most reliable power plant from what he knew. If he remembered right, Nuclear and Coal powered power stations require a great deal of labor maintenance towards their fuel, Wind has a maintenance heavy requirement towards their grid systems, Hydro is similar to Wind and Solar has similarities with hydro and wind except it's easier to manage.

Although his knowledge towards power stations weren't something regarded as profound, he still knew enough to know the best choices.

In his eyes, Nuclear and Coal was out of his choices. Without the constant labor for fuel, it was bound to shut down within the first few days. Hydro and Wind was second after Solar, just because the grid was harder to maintain, doesn't mean it wasn't gathering energy. He just had to work around it. Finally, Solar. It was his best choice because they were the least vulnerable to the environmental processes. They were simple to set up and maintain. Even though it had the same weakness as Hydro and Wind, that alone was enough to make a difference.

On the other hand, Wind turbines were just too big and high to fix and moderate alone while Hydro had too many machines to manage alone. Solar was the clear choice here.

On another note, it's location also allowed them to travel through the quite and isolated roads with a vehicle.


Finishing his 100th review of his circumstances, Von glanced at Ku's sleeping face calmly. At first, Ku had been confused by his weird destination but a brief demonstration and information of his wire-frames was enough to convince him.

It certainly explained his inhuman moments of physical capabilities and although Ku was a bit skeptical, they nearly got killed by something that was as equally unbelievable.

After showcasing a few of his capabilities, Ku had gone up to him and quietly asked if he could become stronger. Von was quite troubled by this, he didn't know if he could provide Ku with a wire-frame, much less teach him how to manipulate electrical energies. But after thinking about it for a while, he decided to find a way. Ku too weak, even against single zombies. That was something to work upon.

Von sighed and decided now would be the time to ask some questions.

"System, can another wire-frame be transplanted for another person?" Von asked through is mind.

[Positive. One core is required. The process will involve a Core and Wire-frame transplantation. Transplantation will be limited to one core. To achieve more than one Core requires surveillance of system, i.e. Not possible.]

Von perked at the reply and focused on the last sentence. One core was very limiting, and this was coming from first hand experiences. Von was just about to lump back to his seat when a possibility came to his head.

"Is the quality of the core fixed?" Von asked, his interest flamed once more.

[Negative. The rank of Core may vary and be modified]

Von nodded seriously. Although one core was limiting, there was nothing he could do but wait until he could acquire something of greater quality. For now, he may as well transplant the first core to Ku after he got his second core. Ku would need it much more than him then.

Von moved away from the subject for now. He had been meaning to ask a question since he first got his hands on the system.

Von's face took a melancholy look, his eyes wondering through the scenery of the moving car.

"Will it be possible to leave this.. dimension?" Von asked hesitantly, not quite used to the concept.

[Fully possible. Options are limitless, the number of galaxies are so big that most you may know may exist out of pure chance]

[However, energy consumption may differ as searching for a specific world may be easy or difficult depending on it's location]

The system's monochrome voice sounded out without pause.

Von quietly raised his eyebrow at this. It was basically saying that space is so large that it may contain universes and worlds that was fiction to him.

He kind of felt small after hearing that. But what could he do? Besides, being small wasn't exactly something bad.

"What is the minimum energy required to activate the search?" Von asked, his cloudy eyes gazing through the passing trees.

[Specific searches may vary. The current search system is a purely chance-based as it blindly spreads it's sensors in a 360 degrees circle]

Von's eyes flickered towards the horizon, where a cluster of buildings could be seen. He smiled, his mind occupied by the system's sentence. It looked like he may need to invest towards this scouting system.

Sorry for the really late chapter! I'm adapting to a new year of school so updates may take some time. Besides that, the story will continue.

If you guys haven't noticed, I'm not someone that's even remotely close to being knowledgeable to what a power plant is and other technical stuff. All i have is google by my side, so if you notice some mistake towards that area, that's why.

Anyway, here is another quite chapter!
