The First Order Book 2 Chapter 171
Volume 2 Chapter 171 There's No Such Place As Heaven In This World
"But this place isn't the Qing Consortium's territory." Xiaoyu said in worry, "Will approaching Luo Lan be useful?"
Ren Xiaosu gave it some thought and said, "He even had the power to help us get legal resident statuses in the stronghold, so it shouldn't be difficult for him to handle a small matter like this. I don't think it'll be an issue at all."
"What if he doesn't come over?" Xiaoyu asked.
Yan Liuyuan, who was close by, said, "Don't worry, Dong Funan is still in our hands."
As he finished speaking, he heard the sound of a vehicle approaching in the street. Ren Xiaosu turned his head and had a look. Wasn't that Luo Lan sitting in the passenger seat and looking all c.o.c.ky?
When the car came to a stop in front of the shop, Ren Xiaosu looked at Luo Lan. "You've gotten yourself another new car?"
Apparently, Luo Lan was really rich. Xiaoyu had mentioned she had gone to a car dealership to ask about the prices. But whether the cars were branded or not, all of them were being sold at astronomical prices.
Meanwhile, Luo Lan had changed cars several times over the span of a few days.
But Ren Xiaosu did not know that these cars that were sold at "astronomical prices" were just like toys when it came to the financial might of an organization.
Luo Lan jumped out of the car and chuckled, "Why are you all standing at the door?"
"Wang Fugui has been arrested by the Public Order Division." Ren Xiaosu got straight to the point.
Luo Lan was taken aback. "What happened?"
After Ren Xiaosu explained the situation, Luo Lan frowned. "It seems like some people have set their eyes on your black medicine, probably because it's so effective. As a result, it made some of the people in this stronghold want to monopolize it for themselves. I've seen a lot of such schemes before. First, they'll resort to all kinds of ways to stop you from selling it before getting someone to approach you with an offer to acquire the formula."
"Acquire the formula?" Ren Xiaosu asked sullenly. Whoever was capable of getting the black medicine's formula from him hadn't been born yet, right? After all, even he himself did not know the formula.
"This is definitely not over." Luo Lan said, "There'll be even more trouble coming your way. Even if you can handle one of them, others will keep coming. They'll make you to land in dire straits and try to buy the black medicine's formula off you for a very low price."
"Let's not talk about what might happen." Ren Xiaosu looked at Luo Lan and asked, "Do you have someone from the Qing Consortium in the Public Order Division?"
Luo Lan said, "Yeah, two of our men were arrested and put in there two days ago"
Ren Xiaosu was speechless. He was so angry he almost laughed. "Damn you, that's not what I was asking."
"Hahaha, I'm just joking with you." Luo Lan chuckled.
"So even people from the Qing Consortium have been arrested?" Ren Xiaosu said in a speechless manner. He had been thinking of using Luo Lan to help him get Wang Fugui out of the Public Order Division, but to his surprise, the Qing Consortium also had some of their people arrested.
"You've misunderstood." Luo Lan replied, "I'll go and talk to Lu Yuan about this. Wang Fugui will be released tonight."
"Why aren't you getting your own people out first?" Ren Xiaosu was puzzled.
A little embarrassed, Luo Lan said, "They can't reveal their identities yet."
When he said that, Ren Xiaosu immediately understood that both of Luo Lan's men who had been arrested must have been carrying out illicit activities under Luo Lan's orders. Therefore, Luo Lan could not show up as of yet to bail them out of trouble. However, he could still help with Wang Fugui.
But before he finished talking to Luo Lan, he saw Wang Fugui entering the shop from outside. Ren Xiaosu was astounded. "Old Wang, didn't you get arrested by the Public Order Division?"
"Oh." Wang Fugui explained, "As soon as I got to the Public Order Division, they apparently received some orders from their superiors. After that, they sent me back here."
"Who did they get their orders from?" Ren Xiaosu wondered. "Did they do anything to you?"
"No, no. Someone told me that it was the stronghold overseer, Lu Yuan, who ordered them to release me," Wang Fugui said with a smile as though nothing had happened.
Next to them, Luo Lan started getting c.o.c.ky. "So what do you think? They still have to respect me. That Lu Yuan is really sensible."
However, Ren Xiaosu felt that something was off. No matter how much Lu Yuan respected Luo Lan, they could not possibly have released Wang Fugui when Luo Lan had not even looked for him yet. Could there be any other reason for this? But Ren Xiaosu did not know what kind of relationship Lu Yuan had with the Qing Consortium. As such, he was unable to make a judgment on this.
In any case, it was good that Wang Fugui had been released.
"Alright, you two continue chatting. I'll go and talk to Dong Funan." Luo Lan said with a smile, "There'll definitely still be problems, but I'll handle them for you if you come to me."
"Will those people still continue to pester us now that Lu Yuan has intervened?" Ren Xiaosu wondered.
"People are motivated by money." Luo Lan explained, "As the saying goes, the lower ranked they are, the harder it is to get past them. Moreover, Lu Yuan is not the true authority of Stronghold 109. Who knows if it's the Li Consortium that's set their eyes on your black medicine? Or it could even be someone who has links with them. Such people can cause you a lot of misery just by constantly harassing you."
Ren Xiaosu fell silent. This was his first time facing such nasty people in the stronghold. If people in the wilderness mugged others with a knife, people in the stronghold did so with a blunt knife.
But ultimately, weren't they all still robberies however you looked at it?
Wearing a suit would not change the nature of these bandits.
Ren Xiaosu said, "Thanks in advance. If something else happens, I'll look for you immediately."
Luo Lan said with a smile, "Now that you're in the stronghold, you'll have to adapt to the stronghold's environment. You can't just rely on fighting and killing all the time. Tang Zhou, give them the phone number to our place."
Ren Xiaosu suddenly wondered, "But aren't you the one who's been doing all the fighting and killing recently?"
"Hahahaha, is that so? Luo Lan smiled in embarrassment and said, "That's also a strategy of mine!"
"And what strategy is that?" Ren Xiaosu asked, curious.
"You see, the Li Consortium guarded their research results like they were treasure and used all of their military might to protect it." Luo Lan said proudly, "But as you can see, they can't sit idle with so many incidents happening. They've been forced to split up their manpower. As a result, won't their defense forces at the university get weakened?"
Ren Xiaosu said in surprise, "You even have the brains for that? Why do I get the feeling that you're just making up a reason?"
Luo Lan said unhappily, "Who are you looking down on? I can't be bothered to talk with you anymore. What a waste of my affection!"
After Luo Lan walked into the backyard, Ren Xiaosu told Wang Fugui and the others, "It's better to be more careful for the time being."
"Isn't there a more direct way to solve this problem?" This was also Wang Fugui's first time encountering something like this. "What kind of people are these? Such disgusting behavior is not seen even in the wilderness."
Ren Xiaosu said with a sigh, "We used to think that the stronghold was a place that all refugees wanted so badly to get into. But it's only after we got here that I realized there isn't such a place as Heaven in this world."
