The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 118.1
Chapter 118: Too Lazy To Name
However suddenly introducing Lin Luo as a producer of high purity energy liquids wasn’t a trivial matter, so the three set aside time for another intensive discussion.
The first transaction between the PengCheng Energy Company and Andre had gone very smoothly. Andre had been very satisfied with their convenient element liquids, and at the same time provided them with a batch of energy converters. After they were shipped back, they were quickly put into use by PengCheng Energy Company.
Yin Ye sent all the remaining money to Lin Luo in the hope that he could bet on more high-quality jade at the Gambling Stone Rally.
In addition, they calculated that Lin Luo should be able to extract at least nine vials of high-grade wood element liquid and four vials of high-grade earth element liquid from the apple green glass jade and the FuLuShou glass jade. Although he could also extract another three vials of fire element liquid, since Xing Mo would be using those directly they were not counted among the vials that could be sold. Although they would only be selling two types of element liquids, it would still be enough to attract the attention of the upper echelon families.
Lin Luo’s ability was extremely impressive, and since the element liquids he would be extracting would be coming from glass jade that had extremely high elemental energy purity to start with, they knew the resulting energy liquids would surely have an even higher purity.
For example, the last time Lin Luo extracted the thunder and gold elemental liquids from the purple and gold glass jade. Although they didn’t get a chance to test their purity, it only took two vials for Xing Mo to breakthrough to a third level ability user. Power upgrades required a lot of elemental energy. The energy required to upgrade from level two to level three was several times the energy required to upgrade from level one to level two. From this it was clear how exceptional in quality the element liquid produced by Lin Luo was.
Lin Luo had another advantage, which was that the time it took him to extract element liquids was very short. Extracting one would only take him just over an hour, and he could extract a maximum of two a day with the energy consumed from the extraction only taking one night to recover. Those so-called masters, however, would often take three or four days to extract a single element liquid as their mental power wasn’t as special as Lin Luo’s who could actively attract elemental energy. As such when they extracted element liquid, they would need more mental power and stamina.
Yin Ye intended to use the two high profile glass jades in Lin Luo’s hands to break the news that Yin’s Auction House would soon launch a batch of extremely pure element liquids for auction. After Lin Luo returned, he could go participate in the certification assessment for senior energy engineers. At that point, they would be able to announce live at the auction that Lin Luo was the mysterious energy master behind Yin’s Auction House.
In doing so, on one hand, Lin Luo’s extremely powerful abilities would be put on full display. On the other hand, he did want to let those powerful families know that Lin Luo and the Yin family were inextricably tied together from beginning to end so that they would think carefully about their actions in the future and not make rash movements against them.
He believed that when the time came, these other families would be forced to re-evaluate their attitudes towards Lin Luo and the Yin family.
As for Xing Mo, Yin Ye also had other ideas. He felt that with Xing Mo’s ability, it was actually more suitable to enter the military for development. This was not only Yin Ye’s opinion, but it was also the intention of the king. A triple ability user inherently had three times the combat power of an ordinary ability user. It was a waste of Xing Mo’s abilities for him to be relegated to being a businessman.
Back when Xing Mo originally chose the military academy, it was because he wanted to join the army. When it was found that his abilities couldn’t be upgraded, even if he graduated with excellent grades, he was told that after entering the army he would only ever be able to be at the bottom level. That was the point at which he gave up his dream and returned to his family.
However, Xing Mo had since solved the problem of not being able to upgrade his abilities. With his status as a triple ability user, plus the acclaim he gathered from the previous battles with interstellar pirates along with saving the survivors of the pirate attack, he absolutely had enough on his resume to be specially recruited. Such a recruitment would allow him to enter the military department for the purpose of being entrusted with important tasks. Once Xing Mo had a firm foothold in the military and enough pull there, they would no longer need to worry about those bothersome families.
Military, politics, and finance were like the three legs that propped up the entire Empire. Once they could master two of them, the other was unnecessary, and those old guys who could only play with politics wouldn’t be able to bother them.
“Xing Mo, what do you think?” Yin Ye looked at Xing Mo on the opposite side of the screen.
Xing Mo didn’t immediately answer, but looked instead at Lin Luo. If he agreed to this plan and entered the military headquarters, it would mean that he might have to be separated from Lin Luo for a while.
He was really… reluctant… and uneasy…
Lin Luo certainly empathized with Xing Mo. How could he be willing to separate from him either? However, he did feel that it wasn’t unreasonable for the king to be so uncomfortable with the position that those established families held. Just like the recent incident where the interstellar pirates attacked them, how could an interstellar pirate group from the Federation enter the Empire so smoothly without inside help from the Empire? That fat man who defected still hadn’t been caught, and he himself was only a small businessman. How could he possibly have been able to pull off such an endeavor? Ultimately there must have been a powerful family behind the incident.
