Chapter 566: The Ryong Family’s Dragon Clan Mercenary Group (Part One)
– On the next day, early in the morning –
Hawking got up and noticed that Xu Cheng and the others had all gone into the big hole that the Falcon Clan mercenaries were excavating. There was even a small river near it.
From outside the hole, he could already hear Li Wei making loud noises due to excitement.
Hawking really wanted to go down and take a look too, but he restrained himself to not to.
Seeing Hawking trying to save face and acting like a demure woman, Xu Cheng said to him, “If you want to go down and take a look, then go.”
Hawking couldn’t help it anymore and walked down the hole, and he was completely stunned.
It turned out that the river outside seemed to be connected to one in the cave. With the big mechanic arm operating, Li Wei and the others were using shovels to collect the broken rocks. If Hawking wasn’t mistaken, the shiny stuff in the rocks were rough diamonds.
Xu Cheng picked up a piece that was about the size of his thumb and said, “Look at this one, it’s colored and is about 5 carats! The color and clarity are both world-class, and there are a lot more rough diamonds of this grade. Last night I searched their inventory, and you might be shocked. There are quite a few kilograms of this. How much do you think this cave is worth if we mine it well?”
Hawking smacked his lips. Just one bucket of this was already worth a lot of money, not to mention that they were mining out more and more.
Seeing his dumbfounded gaze, Xu Cheng laughed. “Maybe, this is why everyone’s eyeing the Land of Mercenaries. Originally, I was even a bit worried about how to get more money to buy more firearms. But now, I can just use this.”
Hawking asked, “You are planning to get this out and sell it?”
Xu Cheng replied, “Not for the time being, we got to take it slowly. We have to try to create a transport channel that belongs to us. Right now if we try to export it, it would only be intercepted by other forces.”
Then, Xu Cheng stuffed the biggest colored rough diamond into his pocket, planning to make a big diamond wedding ring for his wife.
At this time, Luo Yi, who was on sentry duty, ran over and said, “Big Brother Cheng, someone’s here.”
Xu Cheng wiped his hands with a towel and came out.
At the gate of the city, there came three armed vehicles.
All of their clothes had the character “Ryong” (TL note: Dragon in Chinese) embroidered on them.
Seeing the logo, Xu Cheng’s eyes narrowed.
“Aiyo, someone from Huaxia too?” the bald guy on the truck saw Xu Cheng and asked curiously.
Xu Cheng nodded. “What’s the matter?”
“What’s the matter?” The people on the trucks laughed.
“Is this your first time coming to the Land of Mercenaries?” The bald guy glanced at the Deviant Corp’s flag. He nodded and smacked his lips and said, “No wonder, I’ve never seen this ugly logo before. Probably some new group. But, that’s not our problem, we are just following orders. Same rule, you gotta pay the protection fee that’s due.”
Xu Cheng frowned.
At this time, Luo Yi said in a low voice by his ears, “Big clans eat small clans, and small clans have to stick together. They are the old Ryong Family’s mercenary group, and over one-tenth of the land here belongs to them. All the small clans have to pay the big clans of the area a protection fee.”
Xu Cheng nodded. He looked at those people and asked, “No sh-t, we just recognize flags, not time. I heard the Falcon got wiped out last night, and coming to check today it really seemed like the case. Damn, you guys got pretty big balls, even daring to take down Falcon. Not bad, but the rules can’t be broken, even if you are also from Huaxia. Here, there’s no such thing as compatriots, just people from the same clan.”
Xu Cheng raised his brows. “How much?”
The bald guy: “We charge by headcount.”
