The Legendary Mechanic in Marvel Universe - Chapter 194
Chapter 194 Definition of Unexpectedness
Pondering on the spot for a bit, Leo said, “Steam, answer it.”
Once the call went through, a sweet lady’s voice was transmitted by Steam, echoing in the whole basement, “Hey, Leo. It’s Natasha.”
Leo lifted his brows, slightly surprised. But the next moment, he had some guesses, “Is the investigation done?”
“Yeah, the investigation ended right after you left in the morning. I’m released now and this is my new number.”
“How’s the result?” Leo asked.
Natasha stayed silent for a moment before answering, “Neither bad nor good. I’m now a Level 1 Agent, I don’t even have the same authority as when I first joined.”
“Why don’t you just leave S.H.I.E.L.D.?” Leo frowned.
“Although S.H.I.E.L.D. had eliminated the H.Y.D.R.A. spies, the bad habits remain. Joining is easy but leaving isn’t.” Natasha softly chuckled.
Leo was suddenly delighted, “From your words, does that mean you’re not going to stay in S.H.I.E.L.D. anymore? Can you leave straight away?”
“There’s no need to take such a forceful approach. I’m a Super Soldier, that’s my greatest shield. They won’t ask too much from me.” Natasha laughed and continued explaining, “I’m still able to move freely, but I nominally still have to carry S.H.I.E.L.D. agent identity.”
Nodding, Leo contemplated for a bit and asked, “What’s your plan? Anywhere to go?”
Without waiting for Natasha to answer, he continued, “Why don’t you return to Erwin Tech Company, you still owe me money after all.”
“Isn’t it El Tech Company?” Natasha selectively ignored the second half of the sentence.
“It’s a new thing. How is it? Does this name ring well?”
Natasha didn’t continue fooling around with Leo, she said after thinking for a bit, “I want to meet Fury first and hear his takes.”
She still placed Fury’s opinion at first.
“Sure then. Remember to mention my suggestion to Fury, I’m sure he will agree for you to return to continue working in Erwin Tech Company.” Leo was brimming with confidence.
But Natasha replied, “I can’t meet him.”
“What do you mean? Is he dead?” Leo was startled because he just met Fury in the morning.
“No.” Natasha retorted, “The Security Council is stopping me from seeing him.”
“Oh, I misunderstood then.” Leo slapped his forehead as he was slightly dizzy from all the stuff he was busy with lately.
Natasha continued asking, “Leo, can you bring me to meet Fury, silently? Don’t let others notice.”
She didn’t use a forceful tone to ask Leo and didn’t even mention Leo possessed a shrinking technology that would easily help her. Despite her feigning disinterest in Pym Particles on the surface, she wasn’t dumb. She knew that the shrinking technology was Leo’s most important stuff.
“No problem.” Leo didn’t reject and replied perplexedly instead, “Why do all of you love the word ‘silently’?”
“All of you?” Natasha was confused.
“Wait for me for an hour. After lunch, I’ll go and find you. I’ll bring someone else with me too.”
He didn’t tell Natasha Bucky would be traveling with him. He wanted to give her a “surprise”…
Since Leo refused to say much, Natasha was smart enough and wouldn’t ask too much. She obediently hung up the phone, a stark contrast to half a month ago when she always bickered with Leo whether at home or the office.
Leo marched out of Erwin Building’s basement and went to look for Bucky.
Thirty minutes soon went by as Leo and Bucky were eating. After filling their stomach, Leo brought Bucky to an empty space in the basement.
Right now, Steam was huffing and puffing, working hard dismantling the Arc Reactor’s steel foundation in full swing.
Bucky secretly stole a few peeks at the steel foundation and couldn’t resist asking, “Leo, where’s that whatever reactor? Aren’t you building it for months? It’s almost done, why did it disappear all of a sudden?”
Leo smiled and swiped his hand on the storage belt, picking out Viper Mark VII’s energy module. The energy module instantly enlarged and levitated in front of Leo by his control. He pulled the Arc Reactor out and waved it before installing it back.
Meanwhile, Bucky’s jaw and eyes were wide open. He extended his arms, making a half-circle, “That huge…” and closed his arms, making a circle with his index fingers and thumbs, “This tiny…”
Leo nodded in response.
Bucky helplessly lowered his hands, “Leo, I won’t be surprised with whatever you cooked up in the future…”
Recently, he had been receiving quite a lot of shock and surprise from Leo and was almost immune to them!
“Are you sure?” Leo chuckled.
Bucky nodded his head.
One minute later…
“This is f*cking amazing! F*ck! F*ck! F*ck!” Standing by the Capsule House’s window, Bucky tightly gripped the stainless steel pole next to him to prevent being knocked over by the shaking house and couldn’t resist shouting.
From his perspective, underneath his feet was a transparent window and through the window, it was as if watching a plane making abrupt turns. Everything in the house was turned sideways at the moment and the stainless steel pole he was holding was, according to Leo’s words, the clothesline in the living room.
As Bucky was shouting, he recalled what happened in the basement.
After he nodded, Leo suddenly pulled out a tiny house from the belt. The house was rather delicate and he was instantly attracted by it when Leo took it out. Just as he was about to take a closer look, Leo suddenly threw the house up and the tiny house instantly became a two-meter-tall real house…
Based on Leo’s instruction, he slightly lowered his head and entered and followed by the door automatically shut. Besides, he also felt a sense of suffocation albeit for an instant. He wasn’t surprised as he believed this must be Leo’s trick.
But all of a sudden, loud thudding noises came from outside.
He took a look at the window and found out it was a one-meter-thick white rod with traces of red knocking at the window. But his familiarity with human anatomy made him instantly realize the rod seemed to be a human’s finger…
Then… then he sensed the house and he was flying. When he firmly stood again, a one-meter-huge eyeball suddenly appeared outside the window. Truly scaring the wits out of his pants!
Concurrently, Leo’s booming voice sounded, vibrating the room, “Grab the clothesline on top of your head tightly. We’ll be taking off soon. This is the first time this house is carrying a passenger, many things aren’t accounted for. So take notes of your feelings and give feedback later for me to improve it.”
He was dumbfounded before realizing the huge eyeball’s owner was Leo. He must have shrunken together with the house. However, before he could make sense of Leo’s words, he… almost puked out!
After he tightly gripped the clothesline on his head… no, next to his legs, he finally had the time to contemplate what had occurred just now.
Therefore, he involuntarily shouted as the definition of unexpectedness slapped hard on him.
At the same time, he couldn’t help to think that if possible, he wanted to get a suit from Leo to play with!
