Chapter 367: Late Night and Craftwork Go Better Together
Lin Yuan merely took over the empty shell of the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce, which was not a big deal. Furthermore, the veteran faction had poached all its Creation Masters.
If this veteran faction bit him after he took over the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce, Lin Yuan did not mind taking this veteran faction without foundation to establish his authority since he had decided to form his own private faction.
That could also be used to intimidate other veteran factions with a foundation in the future. Thus, when they had any thoughts about his private faction, they would have to weigh whether they were qualified or not.
Besides the collision in combat power, as long as the other party did not have Class 5 Creation Masters, Lin Yuan was confident that he would have the upper hand in terms of resources.
Even if the other party had Class 5 Creation Masters, Lin Yuan really dared to compete with the Class 5 Creation Masters with Bronze/Legend feys.
After weighing the matter, Lin Yuan decided to accept the allegiance of Listen and the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce.
Although the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce was only an empty shell now, its channels and functions were still there. It could be said that there were a thousand things to be done.
The only trouble it had encountered so far was the rising faction under the veteran faction, which was eyeing and wanting to annex it.
Lin Yuan felt that he did not lose out when comparing such trouble to a talent like Listen.
Since Lin Yuan had finished weighing the matter, he raised the teacup in his hand and reached forward.
When Listen saw Lin Yuan’s action, an ecstatic expression immediately appeared on his face. Listen hurriedly held up the teacup and knocked it against Lin Yuan’s teacup. Then he excitedly drank the Three Treasures Tea in one gulp.
Afterward, Listen half-kneeled on the ground with a knight’s salute, and a silver rune shot out from his spiritual energy.
“I, Listen, swear by the Willpower Rune.”
Upon saying this, Listen looked at the cheerful youth sitting on the water rhinoceros leather sofa.
Lin Yuan did not stop his action and said, “I’m Lin Yuan.”
When Listen heard that, he replied with a very solemn and respectful expression, “I, Listen, swear by the Willpower Rune to dedicate the entirety of my life and the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce to Lin Yuan. I only hope to be blessed and be able to lead the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce down the road.”
Listen did not say what would happen if the oath was broken. This was because he had dedicated his whole being to Lin Yuan in the oath.
Lin Yuan could deprive Listen’s control over the Willpower Rune and let him be rejected by the will of heaven and earth with a single thought.
Although this would not kill Listen, there was not much difference between being rejected by the will of heaven and earth and wanting Listen’s life.
It was a serious matter that Listen had used the Willpower Rune to make such a heaven-and-earth oath, but he did it to show his loyalty and also for his own sake.
Lin Yuan had actually been thinking about whether to vow his loyalty to Lin Yuan during this time. After all, Listen had only met Lin Yuan on Star Web once, let alone saying how well he knew him.
However, Listen thought for a while and realized with a bitter smile that he simply did not have the right to think.
He knew that even if he and the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce came over, they would likely be a dispensable pawn. That was also the best choice among all the options available to him now.
Since Listen had come over, the next thing to do was to show his maximum value as much as possible and prove his capabilities so that he and the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce could get more resources.
From this moment, Listen had become Lin Yuan’s attendant, which was different from retainer knights and Protectors.
As long as Lin Yuan protected the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce, he would be Listen’s master.
At that moment, Hu Quan pushed the door open and walked out of the room. At a glance, he looked like he had just woken up and was still a little dazed when he walked out of the room.
If it was any other time, this should be the time he would work as a toolman.
Hu Quan was in a daze, but when he came downstairs and saw this scene in front of him, he felt he was still not awake.
What is the posture of these two youths downstairs?
It’s too strange!
Although Hu Quan did not witness the whole process of Listen swearing with his Willpower Rune, when he saw the youth with red phoenix eyes and a mole at the corner of his eyes, half-kneeling on the ground, he knew that he should be considered as someone on Lin Yuan’s side.
After Listen made an oath with the Willpower Rune, Lin Yuan went forward and reached out to pull him up from the ground.
When Listen made the oath with the Willpower Rune to pledge his allegiance, Lin Yuan did not refuse. This was because a Willpower Rune oath was indeed a very powerful guarantee in this world.
One had to be wary of each other when there were absolute interests, just like in Lin Yuan’s previous life.
If one party unilaterally tore up an agreement without considering the consequences, the agreement would be no different than scrap paper.
Making a Willpower Rune oath was akin to making an agreement into an unbreakable oath. If the party who swore by the Willpower Rune broke the agreement, it would be akin to paying with their life.
This was a little like two strangers who first obtained a marriage license and then fell in love.
Lin Yuan was a bit embarrassed thinking about it!
What kind of strange analogy was this!
After Listen swore with the Willpower Rune, Lin Yuan could really freely use him and pour resources into Listen and the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce.
He would allow Listen to unleash his capabilities and develop the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce. At the same time, Listen could also bring more benefits to Lin Yuan. It was a win-win situation for both Lin Yuan and Listen.
It had to be said that after Listen swore with the Willpower Rune, he had become someone that Lin Yuan could trust.
When Lin Yuan saw Hu Quan, he said, “Uncle Hu, how good it would be if you slept more at night after being busy during the day! Staying up late hurts your liver!”
In Lin Yuan’s opinion, Hu Quan’s body could not take it even if he usually stayed up late.
After all, even Zhang Xiaobai knew about soaking wolfberries in the insulated cup to maintain his health.
When Hu Quan heard that, he quickly waved his hand and replied, “Late night and craftwork go better together!”
When Listen heard Hu Quan’s words, he looked at Hu Quan differently. He had already labeled this uncle with an unkempt beard in his heart.
The corners of Lin Yuan’s mouth also twitched slightly. He could not force Hu Quan to sleep at night, so he let Liu Jie work on giving Hu Quan tonic food.
Lin Yuan had been prepared to give Hu Quan the evolved Bronze/Legend Wood Weaving House Centipede. Now that Hu Quan was walking over, Lin Yuan spoke.
