The Legendary Mechanic in Marvel Universe - Chapter 25
Chapter 25 Preparing to Leave
The next morning, at Base 033, many people had gathered at the Super Soldier laboratory.
Most of them were researchers and support staff. They were busy making preparations for the experiment and checking the condition of every laboratory instrument.
At this moment, with Sinthea as the head, four people were standing in front of the Super Soldier Nurturer.
Besides Dr. Zola and Katr, there was another strong black male. He was this base’s person in charge, Shadan.
Sinthea suddenly thought of something and ordered Shadan, “Shadan, the base security is left to you. Today is a special day, anyone is not allowed to leave or enter the base.”
“Leader, please leave this mission to me and be at ease!”
Shadan received the order and left the laboratory. He arranged for personnel to strengthen the patrol and prepare to seal off the base anytime.
After Shadan left, Sinthea looked around as if looking for someone. However, she could not find him and asked Dr. Zola, “Dr. Zola, where’s your student, Mr. Erwin?”
“Miss Sinthea, these past few days, Leo had been working hard with me to build all kinds of devices. He went through blood, sweat, and tears. I have a metal body while he was just a human. He said due to yesterday finishing the Super Soldier Nurturer earlier than expected, he was too excited and could not sleep. In addition to these past few days being exhausted, he was sick. He was afraid his sickness would affect today’s experiment, so he chose to rest in his bedroom.”
Dr. Zola explained the reason Leo did not come to Sinthea, while not forgetting to praise Leo’s contributions.
“Mr. Erwin had been working hard during this period! After the experiment ends, I should visit him.”, Sinthea nodded and continued, “Since that’s the case, we will start without him. How’s the preparation for Super Soldier Nurturer, can it begin, Dr. Zola?”
“It has been checked twice, we can begin anytime.”
“Then let’s begin! Katr, I had high hopes for you and the rest is up to you.”
Katr passionately nodded at Sinthea and shouted, “Hail, Hydra!”
After saying that, he took off his shirt and laid into the Super Soldier Nurturer. The researchers besides immediately fastened him with leather belts and metal shackles to keep him secured.
Soon, a researcher dressed as a nurse gave Katr a shot of penicillin.
Afterward, Dr. Zola personally inserted the serum test tubes into the injection pod. He directed the group of researchers to secure the injectors on Katr’s body.
Under the power of machinery, the hatch of the enhancement device gradually closed.
When the hatch was completely closed, Dr. Zola raised his multi-functional arm and knocked at the metal cover of the enhancement device. He asked, “Katr, how do you feel right now? Can you see anything?”
Katr’s eager voice came out of the coffin-like enhancement device, “Dr. Zola, I never felt so incredible before. I can see Miss Sinthea, I can see Mr. Schidmt, I can see a pillar of light!”
Listening to Katr’s words, Dr. Zola was confused. He knocked again and confirmed with Katr, “Shouldn’t you see a pitch black? Maybe there’s a problem with the device?”
Katr remained silent and finally spoke after some time, “I do see a pitch black, there’s nothing wrong with the device. Dr. Zola, you should upgrade your emotional module. You don’t have any humor.”
“That’s great, prepare yourself. The following progress may feel a bit hurt, you have to endure it. The longer you endure, the more effective the serum is.”
Dr. Zola replied to Katr and returned to the control panel.
“Every department please pay attention, the experiment is beginning.”
Dr. Zola gave an order and pressed the start button on the control panel. At the same time, the base’s support group kept an eye on the power supply module and other related researchers paid close attention to the various parameters and adjusted them occasionally.
Everyone was paying close attention to the Super Soldier experiment, thus no one noticed there was a person swaggered along the path to the lowest basement level’s cold storage. He used his I.D. card and opened the door.
Followed by a “beep” sound, the cold storage door opened.
Leo was struck by the sudden chill, and could not help shivering.
He walked along the corridor until the end of it and found the Winter Soldier’s special freezing device, Low-temperature Sleeping Pod.
The pod required a corresponding identity card for it to open. However, Leo had long analyzed the structure of the Low-temperature Sleeping Pod a few days earlier. So, it was a piece of cake for him to forge an identity card!
Five minutes later, the Winter Soldier abruptly opened his eyes.
Simultaneously, the hatch of the sleeping pod opened and the Winter Soldier walked out from it.
Leo took out the portable signal disruptor he had prepared beforehand. He switched it on and waited for a few seconds.
With the help of the signal disruptor, Bucky quickly woke up. The next moment, he looked at Leo and revealed an overjoyed expression, “Mr. Erwin, are we going to leave?”
Leo nodded and gave the portable signal disruptor to Bucky. Bucky raised his hand and grabbed it while confusingly looking at the thing in his hand.
“This is the device that will disrupt the chip in your brain. Place it on your body and the chip in your brain can’t control you anymore. Pack up your stuff and follow me, we are going to leave the base.” Leo briefly explained to Bucky and turned around to leave.
Bucky hurriedly caught up and asked “Can we directly leave? What about Sinthea that b*tch? We won’t get caught right?!”
After arriving at Base 033, Bucky was directly put into the sleeping pod by Dr. Zola. Thus he did not know what had happened outside.
Leo walked as he explained to Bucky, “You still remember the serum you took from Howard Stark? Today they are experimenting with it so that no one will bother us.”
Due to Leo’s reminder, Bucky found the memory of the night when he stole the serum from his chaotic memory. The next moment, he shouted in a low voice of disbelief, “I killed Mr. Howard Stark? I killed Mr. Howard Stark?!”
Bucky was agitated but he thought of something and subconsciously said, “Mr. Erwin, you could have stopped me. Why did you not stop me?”
Leo stopped his footsteps and coldly stared at Bucky, “Sergeant Bucky Barnes, Howard Stark was killed by you under the order of H.Y.D.R.A. and it is unrelated to me. I’m just an ordinary man, powerless, and do not need to meddle with this kind of thing. If you can’t admit the mistake you made or are afraid to blame H.Y.D.R.A. and choose to make me take the blame for you. I can put you back into the sleeping pod right now. You have to know that even without your help, I can still smoothly leave here. I don’t need your help. I woke you up only to help you, not for you to blame me.”
Bucky’s expression changed when he heard that Leo was going to put him back into the sleeping pod again. He clenched his fists and his face grimed.
In the cold storage, the atmosphere became tense all of a sudden.
