Nighttime, in the capital’s highest meeting hall.
“Damn it, these damn bastards!!!”
Long Zhanguo looked at the media news. Except for the Demon Alliance’s big three companies, almost all the other factories and businesses had closed down and stopped selling food. He was so angry that his face turned red. He slammed the table and stood up.
Huang Mengguo’s expression darkened as he said fiercely, “Looks like we can’t control these unscrupulous manufacturers and merchants without some thunderous methods.”
Xuanyuan Wangrui’s face was cold as he said, “I support the use of thunderous methods. ”
“What kind of method? Does it involve killing them? I also support this.”
Long Zhanguo couldn’t bear to watch these inhumane people.
It was unbearable to see them trying to harvest money from national disasters.
“I have a way to vent my anger even more than killing them!” Xuanyuan
Wangrui laughed coldly. “However, I would need Gu Changqings help.”
The two looked at him.
Xuanyuan Wangrui took a sip of tea and smiled. “Make an announcement. From tomorrow onward, the Nine Region Empire only recognizes the three major groups from the Demon Alliance to sell canned food legally. Whoever dares to sell it privately in large quantities will be sentenced to death.” “This… But those three companies wouldn’t be able to provide that much!”
Huang Mengguo pointed out the key point.
“That’s why I need Gu Changqing’s help!”
Xuanyuan Wangrui smiled mysteriously and continued,
“I remember that Boss Gu has a very close relationship with M Country. As of now, they are the complete opposite of us. They have more canned food but fewer people. ”
“As long as Boss Gu comes forward and ships canned food from M Country, over around four months later, our country will have a bumper harvest of rice and other crops, and the food crisis will be resolved.”
“And once the food crisis is resolved, what’s the use of canned food for those bastards? In the end, they could only sell them to the Demon Alliance’s three major corporations at a cheap price.”
“In this way, Boss Gu can also obtain great benefits.”
“What do you think of this plan?”
After Xuanyuan Wangrui finished speaking, he picked up his teacup and took a sip.
“Good! This is a splendid idea! We can strip everything off of them with this.” Huang Mengguo and Long Zhangguo applauded.
Xuanyuan Wangrui smiled, continuing, “Since you guys also think it’s a good plan, then I’ll contact Wu Rui. It just so happens that he owes us a favor over a panda.”
“Alright. Also, I think there’s no need for the Divine Runemaster Alliance to exist anymore. They’re all a bunch of useless trash.” Huang Mengguo said in a deep voice.
Long Zhanguo nodded and replied, “I agree. They provide no use at all, so it’s better to disband them.”
“Then we can announce it together tomorrow.”
Xuanyuan Wangrui also agreed and then called Wu Rui.
“Hello, Minister Xuanyuan, what can I do for you?”
wu I-qui’s voice rang out.
“I have a plan, and it goes like this…”
Xuanyuan Wangrui told him his plan.
Wu Rui’s laughter came out. “Our boss has long guessed it. You only need to announce that only the three major groups of the Demon Alliance are allowed to sell canned food.”
“Haha! As expected of Boss Gu. He really thinks far. We’ve come to a consensus then. ”
“Alright, I’m going to take a shower. Goodbye.”
After Wu Rui finished speaking, he hung up the call.
At noon the next day, Xuanyuan Wangrui held a press conference. The content of the conference was exactly as they had discussed last night.
[Announcement 1: Only the Demon Alliance’s three major corporations will be given legalization to sell canned food legally. Anyone who dares to sell it privately will be sentenced to death.]
[Announcement 2: The Divine Runemaster Alliance will be disbanded. From today onward, there will be no traces left of that union.]
The press conference was like a pebble thrown into the sea, without causing any disturbance.
Those profiteers did not panic at all because they knew that the Demon Alliance was about to collapse.
“Humph! Those three old fellows, you will beg us to re-establish the Divine Runemasters Union!”
Su Youwei only sneered after watching the press conference and didn’t take their words to heart.
Time flew by like a white horse, and in the blink of an eye, more than two months had passed.
On this day, the sky rumbled, a flaming meteorite breaking through the atmosphere and falling straight into the Pacific Ocean.
With a loud bang, it sank into the vast sea. For a moment, huge waves surged into the sky, and violent tsunamis rose, disrupting the entire moana.
The sea beasts that were too close to the meteorite all drowned in the energy that outburst when it fell.
When the waves quelled, large patches of charred sea beast corpses appeared on the surface of the water.
In the depths of the sea, a blue meteorite with a diameter of 300 meters lay quietly under a huge pit. A gentle blue energy spread out from its body and spread throughout the ocean. 𝓁𝑖𝘣𝑟𝘦𝘢𝒹.𝑐ℴ𝘮
After an unknown period, a large number of sea beasts were attracted by the energy of this meteorite.
“What a strange meteorite. The energy that is spreading from its surface makes me feel very comfortable. It feels like something inside my body is trying to break free from its shackles.”
“How magical! The closer I am to the light, the stronger that feeling is. I don’t know if I should absorb this energy.”
“Ah! It can actually be absorbed through breathing exercises.”
In just a few minutes, countless sea beasts had gathered around the meteorite. They were communicating in their own way. When they found that they could absorb the meteorite’s energy, they approached it crazily.
To gain the closest distance, they began fighting each other.
In an instant, all kinds of angry roars resounded from the bottom of the sea.
Not long after, a large number of corpses and blood floated in the water.
Another extremely violent roar suddenly came from behind.
A whale shark with a height of around 600-700 meters opened its bloody mouth and charged forward, swallowing countless sea beasts.
Upon seeing it, the sea beasts scattered in all directions and stopped in the distance to watch.
The whale shark did not hunt them. Instead, it floated toward the meteorite, closing its eyes to absorb the energy that was gradually dissipating.
The sea beasts that had stopped in the distance saw this and carefully approached, but they did not dare to get any closer.
The stronger they were, the closer they got. After the whale shark’s arrival, they did not dare to fight anymore.
They all found their spots and closed their eyes to cultivate.
With the help of this mysterious meteorite, marine life would undergo a great transformation.
As the days passed, countless sea beasts gathered in the area where the meteorite was.
The strong were prioritized, and more than a dozen tier-7 sea beasts were lurking around the meteorite.
Time flew by, and in the blink of an eye, half a month had passed.
In these four months, be it humans or mutated beasts, their overall strength had improved.
In addition, the canned food being sold by the Demon Alliance’s three major corporations didn’t seem to be running out. They seemed to have as much stock as they wanted.
This made the profiteers panic. The first batch of rice in the country was about to mature.
At that time, the canned food in their hands would be worthless and would not need to be sold anymore.
In the capital, Linyuan Villa.
Lin Chen slowly opened the door to his room.
Following that, a terrifying aura spread out from within.
Then, Lin Chen, who had broken through to late-stage tier-7, walked out with a smile on his face.
“Lin Chen, you’re finally out. We’ve been tricked.”
Su Youwei walked over when she heard the commotion and said with an ugly expression.
“What do you mean?” Lin Chen asked in surprise.
Su Youwei told him about the Divine Runemaster Alliance’s disbandment and the official announcement that only the three major corporations were allowed to sell canned food.
“It doesn’t make sense!”
“Can the Demon Alliance afford all that?” Lin Chen asked.
“Well apparently, M Country can!” Su Youwei gritted her teeth.
“Damn it, looks like I’ll have to get rid of Gu Changqing as soon as possible.”
Lin Chen’s expression darkened. After breaking through to tier-7, he was more confident in dealing with Gu Changqing.
“I’ll go take a shower first, then contact Bogdan and Bai Xing.” Lin Chen sneered, “Gu Changqing, you deserve to die.”
‘What? Brother, you want to kill Gu Changqing?”
Suddenly, Lin Yueyao’s voice was heard..
