Chapter 410: Godlike (Part One)
Across the street, the street vendor owners all exclaimed.
“Why is the bathhouse on fire?”
The woman that was eating supper immediately looked over to see the entire courtyard on fire, and she stood up in shock. She wondered if she should go over to take a look, but she was also a bit scared.
By now, more and more people from nearby all went over, and when the woman planned to cross the street and check it out as well, Xu Cheng, who was in a Sanko uniform, appeared across the street and began walking towards her. “Let’s go, next stop.”
That woman nodded while in a daze. Then, she began walking away with Xu Cheng while looking back once every few steps. She wanted to ask something but she didn’t know if it was appropriate or not.
Overnight, the woman brought Xu Cheng to North Sea Path by bus.
They didn’t chat at all over the night, and when they finally arrived, it was already the next day with the sun high up in the sky. After arriving at North Sea Path, the woman went to the convenience store and got a map. At that time, she accidentally glanced at the TV inside the store and saw the news.
“One of the Three Chiefs of the Sanko Group was Brutally Murdered, Fire at Old Street Bathhouse Killed Nearly a Hundred Sanko Group Members.”
The map fell from the woman’s hand and her mind became completely absent.
“Miss, the map is 10 yuan, the two bottles of mineral water are 20 yuan in total,” the owner saw that she was in a daze and reminded her.
“Here.” The woman nervously handed the money to the shop owner and left with the map and water.
Walking to Xu Cheng’s side, she carefully handed him a bottle of water.
Xu Cheng drank the water. Feeling that the woman was looking at him a bit vigilantly, he said, “Am I scary?”
The woman immediately moved her eyes away from Xu Cheng. She tried to drink some water too, but due to being too nervous, she immediately choked on the water and coughed.
She wiped her mouth and asked, “Did you start that fire last night?”
Xu Cheng nodded.
Seeing how he casually nodded, as if killing almost a hundred people wasn’t a big deal, she began feeling even more nervous and shocked.
“Where are we going next?”
Xu Cheng took over the map, pointed at a location, and said, “Here, do you know where the Shanling Financial Group’s headquarters are?”
The woman was shocked. “Shanling Financial Group? Sir, what are you planning to do?”
Xu Cheng took a sip of water and said calmly, “To kill a guy.”
The woman almost coughed up more water. She really shouldn’t have asked such a dumb question.
“But… that’s the Shanling Financial Group! Do you know what they represent for the Wei Nation?”
“I know, it’s the third-largest financial group in the Wei Nation and the entire group is worth more than 300 billion dollars,” Xu Cheng nonchalantly said as if he didn’t really care at all. “But not to mention 300 billion, even if it’s 3 trillion, I’m still going to get one guy.”
The woman couldn’t help but ask, “Who?” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Xu Cheng said, word for word, “Shanling Jiubao.” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
The woman’s pupils immediately enlarged. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“But he’s one of the most powerful potential successors of this financial group’s CEO position, the assets he created himself are already worth about 30 billion dollars. He’s a big celebrity in the Wei Nation’s financial circle.”
“You know a lot about the financial circle, looks like you’ve received a pretty good education,” Xu Cheng caught onto this detail and said.
