“Pisces, find the map of the industrial wasteland.”
Pisces nodded. “I’ll do it now.”
In less than ten minutes, Pisces walked over with a big map. After he spread it out, he put it on the table. It was the map of the industrial wasteland that Dragon Head wanted to bid on.
What kind of secret could be hidden on this land for Dragon Head to want it desperately?
A few of them studied the map, but they could not find anything for a time.
The land was really remote and desolate. Plus, the equipment and facilities in the surrounding area were terrible.
Use the land for a plantation?
No, its salinity was too high, so nothing could be planted there.
Build houses there?
There were no facilities like hospitals, schools, banks, or even any life support. Instead, there were a lot of chemical plants, so building houses there would definitely cause some losses.
At this time, Thomas noticed a sign, [HX]. This sign showed up in many places around the factories.
“Find out what this sign means.”
Soon, Pisces answered: HX was the acronym of a special chemical reagent. The chemical reagent was extremely dangerous and poisonous, and it had previously been tested on this industrial land. Since it was too dangerous and there was fear that it might harm innocent people, it had to be moved. The factory moved away, but nobody was willing to take over the land, so it remained empty.
Pisces said, “The land is on auction now because they’re hopeful. Perhaps some enterprises will be willing to step forth to reuse the wasteland and see if any special thing can be done here.”
Thomas asked, “So, is there still any HX chemical reagent in the industrial wasteland?”
Pisces explained, “I’m sure there’s no chemical reagent because they were very cautious when they moved so that nothing dangerous would be left. Besides, this land has been cleaned up many times, so it’s not dangerous anymore. But…”
He paused before he resumed, “Although it’s not dangerous, this land used to be where they studied HX after all. We can’t rule out any information or traces that are related to HX. If some people with bad intentions want to obtain this land and conduct backstepping, something that’s more dangerous than HX could be created.”
HX was a chemical reagent that was capable of mass destruction.
If Dragon Head got his hands on the land and conducted backstepping on HX, or created a more dangerous chemical reagent, it could pose a huge threat to Celandine City.
At that time, the whole of Celandine City would be Dragon Head’s captive, and they could imagine how terrifying that situation would be.
“We mustn’t let Dragon Head obtain this land. We can’t allow Celandine City to become his bargaining chip!”
Although he did not know Dragon Head’s real intentions, the land was dangerous, so he could not let that despicable brat, Dragon Head, occupy it no matter what.
Thomas did not make any concession, and the auction was held two days later. The land had been desolate for a long time, and its surroundings, as well as facilities, were in horrible condition. Hence, the auction price was not high.
The information that they obtained indicated that the starting price would not be higher than $1,500,000,000. In this era where land prices were insane, being able to get such a huge surface area of land for $1,500,000,000 was like getting free food.
Pisces asked, “Commander, how much do you plan on spending to bid on the land?”
Thomas narrowed his eyes and said, “There’s no limit. No matter how much we have to pay, we’re getting it! Get the funds from the Southland District and Central City. We have to prepare sufficient funds in two days. I want to get this land.”
Once Thomas said that, Pisces could not say anything further.
He immediately contacted the relevant people in charge in the Southland District and Central City. He pulled in funding on a large scale from Shalom Technology, Scott’s Remembrance Cultural Arts Entertainment, the Mayo family in Central City, and Kiara Cloud Mountain.
They had to defeat Dragon Head in this battle to get the industrial wasteland regardless of the price!
HX could not fall into the hands of despicable people!
