Chapter 556: Robbery (Part One)
At this time, a black man said out of the blue, “I joined because of the Deviant Corp logo. I think it looks really cool. Who designed it?”
Luo Yi looked over to Xu Cheng, looking a bit odd.
Xu Cheng laughed. “See? There’s finally someone with good taste.”
The logo of Deviant was a hand grabbing over the globe.
The African man asked Xu Cheng, “Is there a meaning behind it?”
“Yes.” Xu Cheng laughed and said, “It means being the arbiter, to judge, examine, supervise, protect, and override.”
The man whistled. “Looks like I made the right call joining. I really like the meaning and the icon. But, Luo Yi said only the real core members could have this tattooed on their body. I want to ask, how can one become a core member?”
Xu Cheng: “You just need to get my approval. Today’s the first time for me to meet you all, so we still aren’t familiar with each other yet. But, I have pretty high requirements for people. So, in the following days to come, I will be looking to see who suits our team, and who doesn’t.”
This sounded a bit provocative, and besides Luo Yi, the others all lifted their brows, feeling uncomfortable.
Xu Cheng didn’t care. The people here were all outlaws that have killed people and mostly communicate with their fists. It was normal for them to feel that way when being looked down by a stranger when they wanted to be treated as equals. Besides, Xu Cheng hadn’t displayed what he was capable of yet, so it was normal for these people to be dissatisfied after hearing this.
After the group rested for a bit, they got back onto the road.
As they got into their own pickup trucks, Chris instigated the African man and said, “That guy even said that to you, he clearly means that you aren’t qualified to get that tattooed on you. He obviously looks down on us, and you are okay with that?”
The African guy shrugged his shoulders. “Do you have anywhere better to go? We will just let him ride his ego a bit more. The moment he realizes that this place is tougher than he thought and that he needs us, he won’t be so arrogant anymore. But, I am indeed not comfortable hearing those words from him. What he meant was, we were never this group’s core members? Lol.”
It wasn’t just him that thought this way.
The other people were having these thoughts too. It was their first meeting with the founder of this clan, and they thought they would at least be praised a few words since they were the only few that were willing to join. But, it turned out, the founder didn’t care.
In fact, these people were more hoping that this Deviant Clan could accept them as a core member, rather than have a simple employment relationship.
However, after what Xu Cheng said, it felt as if they were the reacher in this relationship and Deviant was a top tier organization that was hard to join or something. Who would feel comfortable after hearing that?
On the truck, Luo Yi obviously knew what the other people were thinking. He bitterly smiled at Xu Cheng and said, “Big Brother Cheng, right now we should only treat them politely.”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“Not necessary. We want brothers that can really go to hell and back with us, not someone that only cares about the formalities. Very soon, we need to stir some sh-t up and conquer more land to make space for Mr. Hawking, so we don’t have time to play these little mind games with those people. If they aren’t willing to stay, then they can leave,” Xu Cheng said indifferently.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Luo Yi bitterly smiled. “But you still need them though… If we don’t have men, how can we fight a war for territory? It would be hard no matter how strong we are if we are significantly outnumbered…”
Xu Cheng didn’t say anything.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
