Chapter 672: Immortality
In a plain-looking official residence in Stronghold 31 of the Kong Consortium, a group of people in military uniforms were waiting outside the main hall. All of them were holding a doc.u.ment in their hands, as if waiting to give a report on their work.
They were standing outside the main hall and staring at the mahogany-colored wooden door in front of them. The room inside was completely soundproofed by this thick wooden door.
The officers were standing there solemnly even though some chairs had been placed outside for them to sit on. However, it was a little special today. Because of the incident in Luoyang City, the boss was in a very bad mood, so no one outside dared to sit down.
At this moment, a young man walked in from outside the official residence. When he saw the others standing around, he smiled and looked for the butler. “How many bowls of rice did the boss eat today?”
When the officers inside the residence saw the young man, they all greeted him softly. It was as though this young man’s standing in the Kong Consortium was very high.
When the butler saw the young man, he said softly with a kind smile, “The boss hasn’t eaten yet today.”
The young man smirked. “No wonder these people dare not sit down.”
“You be careful too. The boss is in a terrible mood,” The butler reminded him.
“It’s none of my business.” The young man said with a smile, “It’s not like I was involved in the matter in Luoyang City. If I were there, I would definitely not have fallen into w.a.n.g Wenyan’s trap. Old Liu, brew a new pot of Da Hong Pao for me. I’ll bring it in for the boss.”
“Alright.” The butler nodded.
Actually, even the butler did not dare to breathe too loudly inside the residence. When his boss was in a bad mood, he was even more terrifying than the rumors said.
It was said that Kong Erdong, the director of the intelligence agency, was a ruthless person. Others would kill people when they got angry, but he would get angry if he did not get to kill people.
When the tea was ready, the butler handed it to the young man on a tray. But when the young man was about to enter the room, the butler pulled him back. “w.a.n.g Yun, you had better not speak carelessly today.”
“Don’t worry, I know what I’m doing,” the young man known as w.a.n.g Yun said with a smile.
w.a.n.g Yun pushed open the door and stepped into the main hall with the tray in hand. The officers outside were visibly relieved. It seemed as though once this young man named w.a.n.g Yun went in, the disaster they were facing today would be averted.
When Kong Erdong saw that someone had pushed open the door and walked in, his expression darkened. But when he saw it was w.a.n.g Yun, he reined in his temper and said slowly, “When did you get back? Did everything go smoothly? Have you found out what happened?”
“I got back this morning.” w.a.n.g Yun said with a smile, “When I heard that you were angry, I quickly came over to pay my respects to you. Please have some tea first.”
Kong Erdong glanced at him. “The matter in Luoyang City has been handled badly. After four or five years of planning, it has gone up in smoke. Even if it’s me, I’ll have to face the wrath of the big boss above.”
“I’ve already investigated the matter thoroughly.” w.a.n.g Yun said, “I just returned from Luoyang City, and to be honest, Second Brother Kong wasn’t to blame. There were two reasons for this failure.”
Kong Erdong did not say anything and waited for w.a.n.g Yun to continue.
“The first reason is that w.a.n.g Wenyan, whom the w.a.n.g Consortium has kept hidden all this while, is indeed a superhuman. Moreover, there are many doubts surrounding the w.a.n.g Consortium regarding this operation, including the battle on w.a.n.gchunmen Boulevard. Most of the people who ran away from the battle were the w.a.n.g Consortium’s superhumans. It feels like they had planned to escape right at the start and did not have any expectations that Xu Ke would get killed in that battle at all.” w.a.n.g Yun said, “w.a.n.g Wenyan is a very powerful opponent. My guess is that he was the one behind the mysterious deaths of Second Brother Kong and the others in the safe house.”
“Keep going,” Kong Erdong said.
“Second Brother Kong was not of average ability either. He rarely made any mistakes in the course of his fieldwork over the years.” w.a.n.g Yun thought for a moment and said, “Therefore, we need to be more vigilant if w.a.n.g Wenyan could catch them off guard and blow them up like that. On the other hand, it’s clear the w.a.n.g Consortium wants the satellites the most, yet they were the quickest to retreat. I suspect the w.a.n.g Consortium has some other way to seize control of the satellites, and it might also be related to w.a.n.g Wenyan’s superpower. w.a.n.g Wenyan is a very crucial person in this Luoyang City incident. I had wanted to find him and kill him, but that guy already returned to the w.a.n.g Consortium. Hence, it won’t be easy to make a move on him.”
“That’s enough. You’re already on the w.a.n.g Consortium’s watchlist, so there’s no need for you to take the risk.” Kong Erdong said calmly, “If that f.u.c.king A of the w.a.n.g Consortium discovers you, I’m afraid that all of the w.a.n.g Consortium’s superhumans will start hunting you down. Tell me the second reason.”
“The second reason is that mysterious superhuman from the Northwest.” w.a.n.g Yun said, “In this incident in Luoyang City, he played a very important role. He also has a girlfriend who’s good at using a sniper rifle. When I went to check on the bullet holes on the ground at w.a.n.gchunmen Boulevard, I discovered the sniper had killed at least several dozen people. I believe most of the superhumans won’t want to face enemies like those two right now.”
“Then what about you?” Kong Erdong asked.
“I wouldn’t want to encounter them either.” w.a.n.g Yun said with a smile, “However, that guy has no conflict of interest with the Kong Consortium, so the possibility of meeting him in the future isn’t that great. I think he should have returned to the Northwest by now. He was most likely just helping out this time. Didn’t we also hear about it a few years ago? Rumor had it that Zhang Jinglin had been to Luoyang City during his travels.”
Kong Erdong knitted his eyebrows. He took off his reading gla.s.ses and placed them on the table. “At least you managed to find out about w.a.n.g Wenyan’s background on this trip. If only the others were as capable as you, then I wouldn’t have to worry so much. What do you plan to do next?”
“Have you heard about the Pyro Company?” w.a.n.g Yun replied.
“Of course I’ve heard about them.” Kong Erdong looked at w.a.n.g Yun. “Why? You got ideas?”
“The Pyro Company is our neighbor, so how can we not concern ourselves with them?” w.a.n.g Yun said with a smile, “Besides, Boss, think about it. Ever since the incident at Luoyang City, it’s clear the Anjing House is siding with the w.a.n.g Consortium. Regardless of whether it’ll be useful for us to get our hands on that No. 001 Experimental, even if it’s just to spoil the plans of the Anjing House and the w.a.n.g Consortium and stop them from getting the Experimental, that would be good enough.”
Kong Erdong suddenly said, “I heard the No. 001 Experimental might have been alive for over 200 years now?”
w.a.n.g Yun was stunned. He had not expected Kong Erdong to actually focus on this.
In the dark room, a sunbeam shone through the gap in the curtains. w.a.n.g Yun looked at the reading gla.s.ses Kong Erdong had just placed on the table. Only then did he remember his boss was not young anymore.
An old person standing on the pinnacle of power and being only second best, what else would they want to pursue in life?
Immortality and everlasting power would be the things they wanted the most.
Initially, w.a.n.g Yun did not care too much for the so-called No. 001 Experimental. Furthermore, he thought Kong Erdong would not pay any special attention to it either. But at this moment, he realized he was wrong.
Because he was young, he had never coveted something such as immortality.
