The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 98.1
Chapter 98: National Idols
The matter had already come to an end, so even if they wanted to regret it now, it was useless. The Xing family could only start to hastily begin to clean up after Xing ZhengYuan and Xing Shang as quickly as possible. After all, Xing Shang, the Patriarch, was chosen by them together, just as Xing Mo and Xing TianHai, Xing Mo’s father, had been pushed out together. This was the path they all chose together, and whether they liked it or not, they would have to continue down this path to the end.
They thought to themselves that they were fortunate that at least Xing Shang hadn’t been a complete idiot and at least knew to hire the water army through professional intermediaries. The intermediaries understood the rules and knew how to deal with situations such as these, so even if every member of the water army directly involved was caught and prosecuted, the buyer wouldn’t be implicated. As long as there was no evidence, even if Xing Mo and the others guessed who was behind the scenes, they wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.
However, the surveillance footage was obtained from Xue Ning, and they still hadn’t been able to contact Xue Ning. They believed she may have been discovered by the military department.
“Let’s go to Xue’s house immediately.” Xing ZhengYuan said suddenly.
Everyone in the Xing family was silent for a while before nodding. For them, the top priority had become to stop Xue Ning from talking. In any case, Xing Shang had to be removed from the matter as the Xing family’s hopes were all placed on him.
However, the matter still wasn’t over.
The videos released by the military were watched repeatedly by StarNet users around the Empire. The more they watched, the more they admired Xing Mo’s composure and calmness, and were even more amazed by his astounding strength. After slowing down the video and observing it frame by frame, someone discovered an amazing ‘secret’.
It was possible that Xing Mo could be a multi-line ability user!
Although he mainly used fire abilities to attack, when he restrained the boss of the pirate invasion force, there was a flash of white light in his palm. After that you could see frost condensing on the boss’s hands which proved that Xing Mo had used abilities. Not to mention that there were a few screenshots where his fist was covered with a layer of metal!
This discovery made the people of the Empire all but boil.
Multi-line ability users were extremely rare because their condition was difficult to detect and upgrading was very difficult. However, every known multi-line ability user in history had been existence with outstanding combat power.
Before today, Xing Mo was just a waste whose abilities couldn’t be upgraded. He graduated from the First Military Academy of the Empire with the best grades, but was unable to enter the army, and was later abandoned by his family. People could only imagine how gloomy his life was. Unexpectedly, he was falsely accused of treason, and if there hadn’t been a later reversal, he would have become a notorious traitor.
However, after recent events, he would surely become synonymous with inspiration. It wasn’t that his abilities couldn’t be upgraded, but that he was too good to show his true strength.
So, who was the one who could get Xing Mo out of his slump and make him show his true edge?
Obviously, it was his lover Lin Luo.
Lin Luo had shown his amazing strength in betting on stones more than once. A few days ago, he also obtained the initial qualification and level certification for mid-rank energy engineer in one fell swoop. If Xing Mo was able to become a third-level ability person in such a short period of time, it must be inseparable from Lin Luo.
Lin Luo’s past was quickly dug up. He used to be just an ordinary miner. Because of an accident, he awakened his ability. With the help of Xing Mo, he was able to display his ability and talents.
The two of them, one civilian and one military, one gentle and pure, the other handsome and strong, were seen as complements to each other. If they didn’t have each other, neither one would be who they were now. The two of them were a match made in heaven!
The two of them quickly became the national idols of the Empire, occupying the headlines of all major news agencies on StarNet for several days.
The PengCheng Energy Company also became the most well-known company in the industry due to the high popularity of the two. Countless companies reached out to them and wanted to cooperate with them, and there were a large number of young stones gambling experts and energy engineers who wanted to sign up to work at PengCheng in order to get close to their idols.
Even Yin Ye was highly praised for his previous “speaking out for justice.”
Everything moved in a good direction.
One month later.
The PengCheng Energy Company had successfully recruited nine experienced stone gambling experts and twelve junior and mid-rank energy engineers with good abilities, and the company’s operations were gradually getting on track.
“Vice President Lin, the ore from the planet Kulta has arrived. Do you want to take a look?” An ZiHao, wearing a formal suit, knocked on the door of the deputy general manager’s office.
“Yes.” Lin Luo put down the elemental liquid he was testing and carefully put all the element liquids on the table back into his space button. These liquids had all been extracted from the jadeite mined from Kulta by the company’s newly recruited energy engineers. Since they were new, all of their finished products needed to be tested so that the performance of the energy engineers could be calculated based on the results. As the company had just started, Lin Luo was currently personally responsible for the task.
Although the ore delivered from Kulta had been screened by He Kun and the others, they couldn’t guarantee that there were no errors or omissions, so Lin Luo needs to check over the ore as well.
