Chapter 401: A King-Class Expert Dares to Eavesdrop With Impunity?
The middle-aged man with a full beard picked up this piece of paper as if he was in disbelief, and after scanning it, he asked in confusion, “Big Brother, how come this is still a paper document?”
The older middle-aged man had a sarcastic smile on his face.
“The person who sent the message was afraid of leaving evidence and didn’t want to lose his loyalty to the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce on the surface.”
The middle-aged man with a full beard coughed in dissatisfaction and said, “Big Brother, don’t leave me hanging.”
Seeing that his brother was very impatient, the older middle-aged man just replied, “Besides Listen, the only person who can know such important information about the Lingerie Chamber of Commerce is the old butler, Qian De. He has been serving the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce’s presidents for three generations. Tell me, who told me this piece of news?”
The middle-aged man with a full beard became more and more surprised.
“Qian De is very loyal. I promised to give him two Bronze/Flawless feys and 200,000 Radiance dollars, but he refused to tell me about Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce’s online resources.
“I told him to quote a price, and this old man was still unrelenting. For someone like him who’s unafraid of death, how did you do it, Big Brother?”
The older middle-aged man rubbed over the wine pot with the dragon beast pattern and answered calmly, “I had Elder Fei capture Qian De’s son and two grandsons and transplant the Mind-Controlling Silkworm Gu larvae into his son’s body.
“Then, I had Elder Fei let Qian De’s son return. After just three days, Qian De delivered the information himself, saying that he wanted to hand over the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce’s online resources to me.
“Qian De is not afraid of death, but he’s afraid of his son’s death and that I’ll lay my hands on his two grandsons.”
The more the middle-aged man with a full beard listened, the more his eyes lit up.
After listening to the older middle-aged man, the middle-aged man with a full beard could not help but say, “Big Brother, since we have already gotten Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce’s online resources, why don’t we have Elder Fei put Qian De’s—”
Before he could finish his words, the older middle-aged man interrupted what his brother was going to say next and said with resentment for failing to meet his expectations, “How many times have I told you? Reputation is the most important for our Iron Wall Chamber of Commerce to develop. Why haven’t you understood that yet?
“If word spreads out about this, even the Zheng family will have scruples when investing resources in our Iron Wall Chamber of Commerce, let alone the other faction excluding us.”
Seeing that he was being lectured by his big brother again, the middle-aged man with a full beard raised the wine glass in his hand out of habit and said, “I’ve noted down your words, Big Brother. I know I was in the wrong. Cheers!”
As soon as the older middle-aged man heard this, he put the wine pot in his hand on the table with force. He only felt that there was nothing more to see in this wine pot with a dragon beast pattern.
Lin Yuan looked at Listen, who was standing beside him, and asked, “Are you going to be unable to hold on this week?”
Listen’s eyes were red from staying up all night for the past few days, and his expression was full of fatigue.
However, after seeing Lin Yuan, a relaxed smile appeared on Listen’s face.
“It will take another three days before I can’t hold on!
“The Iron Wall Chamber of Commerce should have just grasped the resources from my side, which it can’t devour within three days.”
Upon hearing Listen’s words, Lin Yuan raised his eyebrow slightly.
“How do you know that the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce has lost all of its online resources?”
When Listen heard that, his expression became somewhat sullen and cold.
“Grandpa Qian has been supporting me all this time. I went to look for him three days ago, but he was not at the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce.
“After returning the next day, he started looking at me with a pang of faint guilt in his eyes, and he didn’t say much.
“Only Grandpa Qian and I know about the online resources.”
Listen made a point without going into details. However, Lin Yuan did not speak after listening. Instead, he looked toward Listen, indicating for him to continue speaking.
Upon seeing Lin Yuan’s eyes, Listen understood what he meant and added, “After this is over, I’ll send Grandpa Qian away from the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce to retire in Indigo Azure City. All matters regarding the chamber of commerce will have nothing to do with him in the future.”
Lin Yuan slightly raised his hand.
A Platinum fey storage box landed in front of Listen, and Lin Yuan said, “Here are 1,350 objects of various sizes. Can you hold on without the online resources and with these objects?”
Listen picked up the Platinum fey storage box, and the fatigue on his face was swept away. Although Listen had not slept and had red eyes from staying up late in the past few days, he had unparalleled confidence in his eyes at this moment.
“These 1,350 objects are akin to an injection of 13,500,000 Radiance dollars. These objects are even top resources.
“If I still can’t hold on, how will I dare to make a promise of letting the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce become a rising faction in four months?”
The corners of Lin Yuan’s mouth curled up.
“Hu Quan has found 27 Class 3 Spirit Craftsmen. They can create 70 pieces more than the expected 200 pieces that can be produced every day.
“You just need to develop the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce well, and I’ll solve the problems regarding martial force for you.”
Lin Yuan proceeded to start the plan of white-clothed followers.
Before opening a space tunnel to the Divine Wood Federation, the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce was the best place for the white-clothed followers to return to.
Given the current situation, the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce would be advancing toward becoming a rising faction by relying on these objects made from completely jade-textured wood powder within four months.
He didn’t know how many eyes were eyeing in the shadows and how many hungry wolves wanted to pounce on them and tear the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce’s flesh to share the gourmet feast in the cup.
At that time, without the martial force support of king-class experts, the cold stream mixed with wind and rain would soon blow the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce into pieces.
When Listen heard Lin Yuan’s words, his eyes lit up instantly, and he said quickly, “If you can ensure that the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce has enough combat power, I’m confident of letting it hit the threshold of a rising faction in three months.”
Lin Yuan did not reply. In his opinion, even with so many resources injected, it was already extremely difficult for Listen to achieve the transformation to a rising faction within four months.
The three months that Listen had proclaimed was really a bit harsh.
At that moment, the peculiar and nice voice of the Mother of Bloodbath that had not uttered a word suddenly sounded, its tone cold.
“A king-class expert dares to eavesdrop? Do you really think that the Listening Heron Chamber of Commerce has no one?”
