Chapter 1526: Control Plan and Cheating College Student
Luke explained, “Also, Gold Nugget eats with us and helps us to get stuff. Would you dare let it touch the food and tableware if it doesn’t clean its mouth?”
Remembering the baby’s smelly farts, Selina shook her head decisively. “No, we can’t let it near the tableware and food for at least three days.”
“Okay, okay,” said Luke. In any case, he wasn’t the one being restricted.
At that moment, the two of them reached the virtual screen. Selina was dazzled by the huge amount of data.
She wasn’t as much of a dunce as Gold Nugget, but she was just as clueless when it came to specialized data like these. She could only look at Luke. “What’s going on with Skye?”
Luke quickly scanned the data. “She might have awakened a superpower like Emma.”
He then briefly told her about the Inhumans and Emma. Selina’s eyes widened. “If it has so many superhumans, why haven’t we heard of this Afterlife?”
Luke said, “My intelligence-gathering is mainly in America and in some parts of Europe; I have basically nothing on Asia and Africa. From Emma’s description, I’m guessing it’s probably in Asia.”
Selina thought for a moment and thought that it made sense. She asked, “What is Skye’s ability?”
Luke said, “I’m not sure. I don’t have any information on Inhumans. I can only say that it might be related to vibration.”
Looking at the shaking hands of the person on the virtual screen, Selina was a little curious. “Will her hands turn into spinning blades or something? That sounds a little cool.”
Luke shook his head. “Her body is already showing signs of damage. If she can’t withstand the vibration or find a way to control it, this ability will tear her into pieces first.”
Selina was shocked. “What kind of ability is that? Can’t she control it?”
Luke said, “Emma said that it didn’t take her much effort to control hers, but that can only mean that Emma has extraordinary talent. Regular Inhumans probably go through an uncomfortable period after activating their abilities, which is what is happening with Skye.”
Selina frowned. “Do you have a solution?”
Skye wasn’t a bad kid. Even though she was already going to a middle school in New Jersey, when she heard about the party, she came back on the weekend to help out.
After she came back, she didn’t think about going out to play. Instead, she went to help Emma take care of the kids, and ended up running into this matter.
Unexpectedly acquiring a strong superpower should be a good thing.
But that wasn’t necessarily the case if she couldn’t control it and got herself killed.
Luke sighed. “I have some ideas, but I can only save her hands for now. If she can’t control this ability as soon as possible, I don’t know how long she’ll be able to live.”
It wasn’t external damage, but the power being released inside Skye’s body.
Luke had never encountered something like this before, and he didn’t have a plan to contain it.
SHIELD had some equipment for suppressing superhumans, but until he got the blueprints from Phil, he didn’t know if they were effective or not.
He had heard the basic theory, which was that it could interfere with the brain activity of superhumans and prevent them from activating their abilities.
It would be too easy for something to go wrong if he tried creating a prototype himself. It would be a joke if Skye turned into a vegetable while her power was being suppressed.
It was safer and more efficient to wait for SHIELD’s developed product design.
Looking at the data, Luke sighed again. “Also, she’ll probably have to take time off school. What a pity; I already arranged for her to skip grades.”
Selina found that strange. “What’s the big deal about skipping grades? At most, she can go back to school after she recovers. She’s only 18, but looks like she’s 16 or 17. What’s wrong with studying a year or two behind?”
Luke said, “It’s interesting grooming a genuine college student.”
“But I was also a college student…” Selina suddenly realized something. “Wait, are you looking down on a community college graduate like me?”
“Of course not.” Luke chuckled. “Didn’t we graduate from a community college together? I was the one who gave you the answers.”
Selina angrily grabbed his face and pulled his cheeks. “So you’re looking down on me for cheating as a college student?”
Luke spread his hands helplessly. “I cheated too.”
After he had his fun, Luke carried Skye back to the study on the third floor and woke her up.
Looking at the girl, who was a little dazed after a nap, Luke simply told her that she was fine for now, and that he would find someone to help her.
However, Skye herself had to work hard to get used to her power and control; no other method would treat the problem at its root.
Skye was a little depressed. “Then I can’t go to school?”
Luke patted her head. “You’re still young. There’s no rush.”
Skye: “I’ve already wasted a lot of time.”
She was now regretting that she hadn’t studied hard in middle school because of her foster family.
Luke said, “Study on your own for now. I’ll help you look for videos and study materials. As long as you’re diligent, it won’t be much worse than going to school.”
Skye stood up and gave him a hug. “Thank you, Luke.”
Luke patted her head again. “Alright, I’m just investing in you in advance. Don’t get too excited. Hm, how about this? Let me check your luck.”
Luke pointed at the coin in his hand. “Heads or tails? I guarantee it’s a special technique for seeing everything.”
Skye didn’t know whether to laugh or cry as she let go of him, but she didn’t refuse.
Ten minutes later, they came down from the third floor.
The relief shelter was wrecked, and Gordon might come back to get revenge. Skye’s dorm couldn’t be used, so she could only stay over at Luke’s place for the night.
‘There were two guest rooms on the third floor, and Skye chose the smaller one.
This was originally for Claire, but when she came, she would squeeze in with Selina, so the room had never been used.
But Skye, who had slept for a bit earlier, wasn’t sleepy at all, so Luke sent her to watch TV in the living room.
He had a lot of things to do. He had to solve the problem of Skye’s shaking hands, and the Level 2 clone had to make arrangements for Emma and her children.
Only Selina and Gold Nugget were with Skye in the living room.
Skye watched TV for a while, and felt a little bored.
Her bag had already turned to ash in Emma’s explosion; there was definitely no way that the laptop inside had survived.
Besides, her hands were shaking like she had Parkinson’s, and she wouldn’t be able to play with her laptop like usual.
Noticing Skye’s expression, Selina put down the tablet in her hand. “Do you want to come with me?”
Skye was stunned. “Huh? What?”
Selina stood up and crooked a finger. “Sometimes it’s better not to think too much. It’s a lot more relaxing to get in some exercise and sweat it out.”
Skye looked at her hands. “But my hands are injured. It might be hard.”
Selina said, “Don’t worry. There’s a lot of other stuff in the training room to use..”
