Chapter 570: And Open Fire
Hong Lie had been holding onto the rights to this realm for two years and had the mindset of first come first serve. The idea of sharing a 40-60 percent split with Qin Feng would have been ridiculous, but one of his subordinates provoked Qin Feng and it was for a bunch of C-tier items that, in Hong Lie’s opinion, seemed more important to Qin Feng but it was not so important for him!
That was why he was so generous when it came to the 5th level.
Now that they had reached the 6th level, there was obviously better loot. Now, Qin Feng wanted a 50-50 split, which meant that Hong Lie would suffer a huge loss.
However, he continued with his previous decision. If he had to look for someone else then he would still have to give them incentives, and maybe haggle for the price of aid. Since Qin Feng was here, might as well let him try.
Maybe Qin Feng would not be able to get it open!
He did not expect Qin Feng to test his limits!
This obviously made him start to hesitate.
The other people were speechless when they saw the power that Qin Feng unleashed. He easily blocked a consciousness attack that would have taken out a B-tier apt.i.tude user. They saw just how powerful he was.
‘No wonder Boss called me an idiot. Qin Feng’s power is incredibly strong! The boss couldn’t have blocked that attack, yet this guy did!’
‘Don’t know if the president is gonna accept those terms. Doesn’t matter to me. If B-tier items appear then they’d be useless for me!’ Wen Hai thought to himself while the other C-tiers could not find the words and only continued to watch.
Hong Lie gritted his teeth. “You can go ahead and try, President Qin!”
He had a plan, believing that Qin Feng would not be able to reach the amount the crystal pillar demanded. What was the harm in trying? If he did not make it, then not only would Hong Lie save income, he would also be able to test the limits of the pillar.
Qin Feng turned his head to look at the pillar before his consciousness burst out.
That being said, if the consciousness of the two C-tiers that Hong Lie brought along with him were small gentle streams, Qin Feng’s consciousness was a vast torrential river.
People could pick up a rumbling sound with their ears, but it was in fact the sound of his consciousness activating.
The crystal pillar began to light up and the light traveled up the pillar at an extremely fast pace.
In the beginning it was only one meter, then two, then three.
In the blink of an eye, it reached all the way to five meters!
The pillar shuddered and the barrier behind the crystal pillar began to open and the last level of the hidden realm was revealed to everyone present.
There were so many things piled behind that barrier.
Hong Lie did not know if he should rejoice at the obstacle being cleared or despair at the fact that he just lost half of the loot.
“President Qin, the next generation has really far surpa.s.sed us!” Hong Lie said with a hint of jealousy in his tone.
“Just a bit!” Qin Feng humbly responded to the other’s compliment, which only aggrieved Hong Lie even more.
Hong Lie’s men began to catalogue the items and Qin Feng casually said, “That crystal pillar is quite interesting, why not just give me that as part of the level’s loot?”
Hong Lie had calmed down by now and after hearing Qin Feng’s words he thought about it for a moment before nodding cheerfully and said, “Of course!”
Wen Hai gave Hong Lie a puzzled look. While the pillar may have been an object used to test any who approached, it definitely was something worthwhile. Maybe it could even be refined into a G.o.d Weapon?
But it was Hong Lie’s decision and Wen Hai had no say in this whatsoever. He did not bother speaking up either, maybe the president thought that the B-tier materials were more valuable than the crystal pillar.
Soon, when everything was organized and put away, and Qin Feng had obtained his end of the terms, he naturally said his farewell.
“I won’t be keeping you then, President Qin!”
Hong Lie smiled and said goodbye.
Qin Feng waved his hand and summoned the Sky Dweller. With Bai Li in tow, they boarded the hover copter.
Hong Lie waved at the hover copter as it flew off and walked toward it at the same time. He unconsciously began to walk faster as he got closer to it.
In less than thirty seconds, Qin Feng’s hover copter had taken to the skies but it had not yet disappeared from some people’s view. Hong Lie and the others had already entered their aircraft.
As Hong Lie moved forward, the smile on his face gradually disappeared and his eyes filled with murderous intent.
“Lock onto that Sky Dweller with the biggest cannon we’ve got and open fire!”
All his subordinates were taken aback by this command, but suddenly delighted. They finally understood what their president was doing and why he was so easy to persuade earlier!
A C-tier gunner quickly started up the aircraft and pointed its main cannon toward the Sky Dweller. The hover copter was still within his range!
The others were standing behind Hong Lie, waiting for the fireworks.
“President, you were secretly plotting against that kid!”
“I told you before, the president doesn’t suffer losses. That kid just bit off more than he could chew, just because he’s just a bit stronger.”
“That’s right, though I don’t know how he’d feel after getting killed by the machines of his own design!”
Everyone was shocked by Qin Feng’s power. In their eyes, he was a powerful threat. Of course they would not like him.
Especially Wen Hai.
Hong Lie let out a chilling laugh, “I was going to be civil but this brat crossed the line! That crystal pillar is priceless, how could it just be exchanged for half a level’s worth of loot? Now I want to see just how he can escape from this one!”
Qin Feng was infamously dangerous and Hong Lie would never take him on in a direct confrontation.
But now, he only brought a lone Sky Dweller here, nor did he bring any subordinates or an aircraft.
His fleeing figure seemed so fragile, so unsuspecting. This caused malicious thoughts to spread through Hong Lie’s mind.
‘This is an opportunity. Qin Feng is a top prodigy. Once I kill him, there’s no telling what manner of treasures he’s carrying on his person!’
‘It’s your fault for not being vigilant!’
‘A fallen prodigy is just like the meteors that burn up in the atmosphere as they crash to the ground. No more worth than rocks!’
As Hong Lie thought to himself, the aircraft’s cannon had been fully charged.
Meanwhile, in the Sky Dweller. Bai Li furrowed her brows. “That Hong Lie guy’s planning to kill us!”
Even when he was smiling and waving, there was no hiding that murderous intent in his eyes as he watched them leave.
Qin Feng’s eyes narrowed. “I’ve known the moment that I asked to retrieve the pillar.”
“Yeah, that pillar is a must have thing for the senior members of the Red Sun Corp. To have given it to me so easily would either mean that Hong Lie is stupid or planning something!”
Bai Li could suddenly feel the fluctuations of energy, even from thousands of meters away.
She sneered, “Obviously, President Hong Lie has other plans!”
Qin Feng’s lips pulled into a sarcastic smirk. “A man who is never content is like a snake trying to swallow an elephant. I sold President Hong something that has a little flaw. He fell for it. I hope he doesn’t regret what he’s done!”
At this moment, the main cannon of the aircraft manufactured by the Fengli Organization fired out a terrifying beam of energy. It crossed the distance of a kilometer in an instant and was about to reach Qin Feng’s little Sky Dweller!
