Chapter 207: Cooperation
Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
Just as Ye Xingchen was about to drink the cup of acid rain, there was a knock on the door.
“Little Ye, the officials are here.”
“Okay, I’ll be right there.” Ye Xingchen looked at the glass of water and decided to put the matter of improving his superpower to the back of his mind.
Zhao Hao’s former comrades were still working in the government. They had previously contacted Zhao Hao and told him after chatting for a while that the government strongly supported various non-governmental organizations. They said that the leaders of the non-governmental organizations could go to the government’s headquarters to receive the latest potato seeds they had developed.
There were also people in Ye Xingchen’s base who were researching seeds, but so far, there had been no substantial progress.
If they could really get these seeds through the government, then there would be no need to worry about the problem of food demand.
Not every organization had the ability to develop seeds. Once the food supply was cut off, an organization would face disintegration. No one wanted to see the power they had painstakingly built up disappear just like that, so many leaders of organizations agreed immediately after hearing about it.
Although Ye Xingchen was a little tempted, he did not completely trust the officials. The officials would definitely not share such good news for no reason.
After getting Little Black to predict that nothing bad would happen, he brought Zhao Hao, Mo Qi, Lin Sijia, Qin Tianming, and the Chen sisters along.
With them together, Ye Xingchen was confident that he could handle all dangers.
Zhao Hao’s friend, Yuan Bo, had also awakened a physical strengthening ability, so he was temporarily in charge of the safety fortress.
Ye Xingchen took out an enhanced version of a nine-seater luxury yacht from his space and followed the people sent by the officials to lead the way to the official base camp, which surprised the officials.
“Mr. Ye’s base is really well-equipped. They even have such a thing.” His tone was filled with envy. After all, even the officials did not have such a thing. In comparison, the so-called government seemed too poor.
Ye Xingchen didn’t say anything. He just smiled and nodded at that person.
The headquarters of the government was also built on the top of the mountain, not far from where Ye Xingchen and the others were. When Ye Xingchen arrived at the headquarters of the government, he even met the leaders of several different organizations.
When the leaders of the various organizations saw Ye Xingchen, they also became spirited and greeted him. If one had to say what was the most famous in Jinghai City, it would be Ye Xingchen’s base.
Not long ago, they had destroyed Gao Qiwen’s base. Now, Ye Xingchen’s base was known as one of the top five bases in Jinghai City.
There were originally more than 20 million people in Jinghai City. Other than those who died from the cold wave, high temperatures, and acid rain, there were still nearly 10 million people. This number was still huge. There were as many bases as there were hairs on an ox.
This time, Ye Xingchen only came with eight members, including Little Black, the least of all the organizations. However, no one dared to underestimate them. They looked at Ye Xingchen and the others with deep respect.
The officials gathered all of them together, and the leaders of the various organizations also took the opportunity to communicate. Ye Xingchen was no exception. He chatted with a middle-aged man beside him.
This middle-aged man was called Chen Jian’an, he was a retired soldier like Zhao Hao. He had the most subordinates besides the government. Many of them were ordinary people without supernatural abilities, and there were also many members who were old and weak, as well as women and children.
In Jinghai City, this base had a good reputation. Every once in a while, it would take in a batch of refugees, and countless people would flock to it.
Such a base could be said to stand out from the rest! People admired Chen Jian’an very much.
“Brother Chen, your base has thousands of people, so it must cost a lot of resources. It’s not easy. You’re amazing!” Ye Xingchen praised from the bottom of his heart, not forgetting to give him a thumbs up.
“Hahahaha, Little Brother Ye, it’s all thanks to the government’s help. Before the potato seeds were developed, they helped us a lot and that’s why we’re still alive today. The government isn’t as bad as the rumors say. They’re still responsible. I’ll send some to you later.”
Ye Xingchen did not refute his words, but when he heard that the officials were responsible, he scoffed. Most of the so-called officials only thought about their own interests and would not put the interests of the people first.
“Then I’ll thank Brother Chen first.”
At this moment, another leader of an organization walked towards Ye Xingchen.
“Hello, Mr. Ye. My name is Li Wenchan.”
“Hello, Mr. Li. I’ve heard a lot about you.” Ye Xingchen replied politely.
Nowadays, many people want to get to know Ye Xingchen and kissed up to him. As more people arrived, they all moved closer to Ye Xingchen. However, this was also normal, so Ye Xingchen didn’t care. In a crowded place, the strong would always be the main character.
Those who could be invited here were more or less famous and powerful. Ye Xingchen naturally knew about the bases in Jinghai. The person who just came was the leader of the Kunlun Base, one of the five bases.
“Mr. Ye, can we talk in private? I want to discuss the future cooperation between our bases. Are you interested?” Li Wenchan turned his head and looked at Ye Xingchen.
“Oh? Cooperation? How?” When Ye Xingchen heard this, he was immediately interested. He had thought about this before. Like a military alliance, they could join forces to send troops to resist the enemy. This would greatly increase the deterrence of both sides.
Ye Xingchen was listening quietly. While Chen Jian’an was talking, he was thinking quickly.
“Before the apocalypse, the countries of the world competed in military strength and economic strength. Now that supernatural beings and mutated monsters were born at the same time, this represents the beginning of a new era.”
“We shouldn’t limit our attention to the battle between bases. As the weather gradually improves, the order of society will slowly be restored. At that time, the status between countries will depend on the strength of the superpowered people.”
Ye Xingchen thought to himself, “This person’s scheme is really not small.”
“I think you’ve also discovered that the abilities of superpowered people can be continuously enhanced. Many enhanced humans have already discovered it, but it’s still in the stage of exploration.”
Ye Xingchen was very curious about this question, so he said, “I heard that the M Nation discovered a type of monster’s blood. It can greatly enhance the strength-type superpowered person. I wonder if it’s true?”
“As far as I know, very! That battle had gathered almost all of the most powerful masters in the M Nation, but they had only managed to injure it and collect a little blood. But even so, in order to lure it out of the deep sea, we have lost many powerful fighters..”
