Marvel: I can control Metal - Chapter 48
Chapter 48 Tony’s Request
Leo walked out of the door, went straight to the kitchen, watched the refrigerator full of ingredients, and calmly started cooking.
But in an hour’s work, a table full of delicious meals was made.
Yes, these were Leo’s mornings.
Looking at the steaming steak in front of him, Leo took a bite to eat, enjoying the only pleasure of food. Although it can’t fill his stomach, chewing is also fun.
After eating a steak, he naturally cut the next one, but just after eating two bites, Leo discovered a serious problem.
He can’t eat it anymore.
Leo’s eyes widened, looking at his chubby belly, which was something he had never seen before.
‘How is it possible!’
This was the first time Leo felt full, and it was the first time he felt the fullness of his stomach.
This happy and beautiful feeling from the depths of the soul made Leo squinted his eyes, lying on the sofa and touching his belly.
I have been in this world for five years, and I have never experienced this wonderful feeling, and I have always been in a state of slight hunger.
Even if a large amount of food enters the stomach, it will turn into energy very quickly, and it will be stored in the mind to prepare for the subsequent cultivation, which is uncontrollable.
To be honest, this feeling once drove Leo crazy, but time will always smooth everything out. Under this kind of life-threatening activity, Leo slowly got used to this hunger.
As a result, today, Leo was full, and his instinctive pleasure made Leo lazily not want to move, and quietly spread out on the sofa.
Tony walked up at this time and saw Leo in the hall.
“What did you do? You look like a person who shot your arm in an alley. You won’t really touch that thing?”
“No, I’m just full, so cool!”
“Full?” Tony looked at the kitchen. “Did you eat one cow? Or two?”
In Stark’s impression, he has never seen Leo full, and now Leo is in a terrible state.
Leo turned over and sat up, “Mr. Stark, I think it should be the cause of the Ark Reactor. Now I don’t have to continue to eat like crazy to replenish my energy.”
“You can absorb electricity? Do you know how much energy this reactor has?”
Leo waved, his door opened, and the reactor in the room floated out and fell into Tony’s hand.
“I have absorbed it, maybe I need one more, Mr. Stark, hehe.” Leo looked at Tony with a smile.
Tony hurried to the studio with the reactor in his hand, “Jarvis, scan the reactor.”
“Okay, sir, the scan is over.”
“The palladium metal has been consumed, and the interior of the reactor has been damaged due to overloading, and it needs to be re-adjusted to restart.”
When the reactor was opened, a circle of palladium metal inside had been finely gelled, and a trace of unpleasant odor was emitted.
Tony frowned, “This reactor is enough for my Mark 3 to fight for ten consecutive days. It actually ran out in one night. What did Leo do?”
“Jarvis, prepare the materials again and make one more, oh no, two.”
“Okay, Mr. Stark.”
Tony returned to the living room and looked at Leo, who was sitting at the table and continued to eat.
“Leo, you should eat in the future. One of my reactors will be enough for you to eat for a year.”
“Don’t, Mr. Stark, the energy level of the food is too low, I can’t practice anymore, the reactor is still strong!” Leo couldn’t help thinking of the light blue energy and licked his lips.
“Aren’t you full? Why are you still eating? Do you want to experience the taste of dying?”
Tony looked at Leo, who was still eating. It seemed that all he saw just now were fantasy, and he was still the big stomach king.
Leo touched his flat stomach, “Don’t waste food, I can still eat.”
In fact, just now, Leo discovered that he seemed to have found the switch of the melting pot in his stomach, and he could choose whether to absorb the food in his stomach and turn it into energy.
All that was previously uncontrollable was absorbed, without asking Leo’s opinion.
In line with the principle of not wasting, Leo cleaned up all the food at the table. Of course, Tony was also full by the way and returned to the basement.
The manufacture of the reactor will take some time. Leo went to the studio and watched Tony repairing the damage to the Mark III. At the same time, he was also studying how to better disassemble the armor.
“Mr. Stark, what do you think of these weapons?”
“Someone in the company is messing up, and it’s probably Obadiah.” Tony’s hand movement slowed, thinking of what Obadiah said to him at the party, and now he can’t accept it.
“Just leave it alone, let me think about it, go out and play by yourself, the reactor will be for you at night.”
Tony continued to work, ignoring Leo.
Leo touched his bulging belly, and there was a hint of sleepiness in his heart, “Or, go take a nap?’
Facing this unprecedented experience, Leo returned to the room, lay on the bed, and fell asleep with a full stomach and a beautiful smile.
In the evening, Pepper came to the underground studio, Tony was still dealing with Mark 3, met Pepper, and put down his work.
“Hey, Pepper, are you busy now? Do something for me. I want you to go to my office, hack into the host computer, and get back all the recent shipping lists. This is a secret chip.”
Tony faced Pepper who had been looking at him, and handed over a USB flash drive-style chip.
“You can get in with this. It may be in the administrative folder or in the hidden disk. In that case, you can find the one with the lowest number.”
With that said, Tony himself returned to the workbench and explained some of the problems he might encounter.
Pepper glanced at the USB flash drive in her hand and looked at Tony seriously.
“If I bring the list back, what are you going to do?”
“The old way, if it is a secret transaction, I will stop it, find my weapon, and then destroy it.”
Pepper couldn’t bear to say something, and smiled bitterly, but there were some tears in his eyes, “You know I am willing to do anything for you.”
“But if you want to mess around like last time, I can’t help you.” Pepper said seriously.
“I just want the list, not to show it to anyone, not for money, and don’t sign any contracts.” The voice grew louder.
Tony turned around, staring at Pepper with eyes wide open. “You have to do this, nothing more.”
“Really?” Pepper looked at Tony quietly.
“Then I will resign.” He said these words with tears in his eyes, put the chip in his hand on the table, and turned to leave.
Tony never thought that such a situation would happen. Pepper never refused his request, but this time…
Seeing Pepper who turned and left, Tony changed his usual detached personality and said calmly and deeply.
“You have been standing on my side for so many years. You were there when I was making money by destroying everywhere.”
“Now, when I want to protect those who are suffering because of me, you are leaving me?”
Pepper only cared about Tony’s safety and replied directly.
“Tony, this will kill you. I can’t push you.”
Tony sat down, and thought about those who had helped him in times of crisis and lost their lives, the young soldiers who stopped him in the jeep, and Ethan who saved his life in the cave.
There are also those refugees who lost their lives innocently because of their weapons, and countless blood appeared in front of them.
Tony lowered his head and said dullly, “If it weren’t for this belief.”
“I should have died long ago.”
“I’m not crazy, Pepper, I just finally understand what I should do, and I know from the bottom of my heart that it’s the right thing to do.”
Pepper saw that Tony was so deep for the first time. Tony never said what happened during his three months in Afghanistan.
No one has experienced his life, who knows if he lived like years in those days.
