Chapter 532: Team, Funds, and All of Your Food and Drink Expenses are All on Me (Part One)
Xu Cheng asked him, “Are you paying the bill?”
“I…” Haber bitterly smiled. “Let me think about it. It’s a billion dollars, I might not be able to pay it all within a short time.”
“It’s a construction team you find, so you talk to them and tell them when you want to pay them in full. That’s your business,” Xu Cheng said.
“Let’s eat breakfast first, I’m overwhelmed. You’re taking on a big gamble, I need to calm myself down a bit.” Haber sat down and didn’t let Xu Cheng go too. The two of them just continued enjoying the hearty breakfast buffet.
Xu Cheng said to Haber’s assistant, “Prepare me another breakfast meal, I’m bringing it back to my wife.”
Haber’s assistant nodded and immediately left.
Xu Cheng looked at Haber and said, “I like how you get to order people around. When you get a chance, you can come and hang out at my territory.”
Haber: “Where? Huaxia?”
Xu Cheng: “No, the Land of Mercenaries.”
Haber: “No thanks, I still want to live a few more years. I don’t want to get shot down when I’m still in my private jet entering your airspace. There are just missiles flying everywhere. Over these years as oil prices increased, the dictators there have become even crazier.”
Xu Cheng: “It’s fine, in the future, I will allow your plane to fly around all you want. But, that will be in the future.”
Haber looked at Xu Cheng in all seriousness and said, “Are you really planning to go and develop that region?”
“Why not?” Xu Cheng looked as if he couldn’t imagine a reason not to. “Just like you said,there are all kinds of outlaws there that couldn’t find asylum under any nation. They all have nowhere to go, and there are all kinds of people there. It’s like the Mexico black market on crack. I like this world of the strong. Over there, there’s no such thing as the law; the side with stronger fists and more bullets is the law. Those that are tougher, have more people, and are more powerful get the final say.”
Haber laughed. “But the key is, do you have firearms?”
Xu Cheng: “No, but I can grab some from others.”
Haber: “Then do you have bros? The other guys all have over thousands of people in their allied and mercenary regiments, and even the lower grade ones have over hundreds of people. In the past, it was possible to take on this kind of army by just one person and one gun, but now, all the nations have drone tactics and various tactics executed by professional strategists, not to mention the high-tech weapons. What do you have?”
Xu Cheng was speechless. “Nothing. Right now, I probably have just about 50 or so guys.”
Haber laughed, the contemptuous kind. “Solo commander? Are you planning to make you and your almost-non-existent army cannon fodder?”
Xu Cheng suddenly said, “Then what if all those fifty men’s power is second only to me?”
Haber lifted his eyebrows. “Impossible! Your level is at least S+ class. 50 S-class soldiers? I don’t even think any nation can group together that many.”
“Then you are just a frog at the bottom of a well,” Xu Cheng said in disdain.
Haber doesn’t engage in international disputes, so he certainly didn’t know the hidden force behind the big nations.
Just take the M Nation’s Soloman 72 Demons and 7 Sins for example, they were all S-class and higher soldiers.
“There will only be more in the future,” Xu Cheng said. “But now, telling you all of this is just wasting time. All will depend on how much you can help out this time.”
“Help out my azz! You are telling me to pay a billion for your bill for free! And you want me to take the risk of being investigated by the Interpol to go and find you a construction team for you to build a firearm factory? Don’t tell me that the gift you mentioned to me was just sweet talk but no substance.”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“Nope, let’s eat breakfast first,” Xu Cheng said.
Haber glared. “What’s there to even eat! I feel like I got trolled by you. I’m taking back my promise of finding you a construction team and paying for the bill.”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
