Six billion was an astronomical figure.
Would any enterprise be able to afford it?
Even Art Trading Corporation, the tyrant of Celandine City, could barely afford it. The number made everyone’s face turn pale in shock. It was putting oneself at risk
They did not understand why Thomas would do that. After all, this industrial wasteland did not have any development value. It could not be used for planting or building construction. If he bought the land, it would be useless.
Did he need to spend $6,000,000,000 to buy it?
The host was also shocked. “Mr. Mayo, are you sure you want to place a bid of S6,000,000,000 for the industrial wasteland?” he asked in a trembling voice.
Thomas did not back down in fear. He gently nodded. “I’m sure.”
The host breathed a long sigh before he raised his microphone and said, “Six billion dollars from Mr. Mayo for the land. May I know if anyone wants to raise the price again?”
He was saying that to Dragon Head, not the others. The host had been staring at Dragon Head.
Dragon Head chuckled before he gave Thomas a big thumbs-up and said, “Mr. Mayo, how resolute of you. You’re really rich, and I acknowledge it. I’ll leave this land to you. It’s $6,000,000,000. Even if I kill Lord Vedastus, he won’t be able to give me so much money.”
Dragon Head had given up too.
Who else could compete against Thomas at this point?
The host announced the price three times, and nobody interjected. With that, the land belonged to Thomas.
“Mr. Mayo, congratulations…”
When the host said that, he actually said it against his conscience because he knew the true value of this land. This land that was not valuable had been sold for $6,000,000,000. Thomas must be suffering a great loss.
Thomas smiled faintly, and he allowed Pisces, as well as the host, to handle the procedures. Then, everyone got up and left the site.
Dragon Head stood up and tidied his shirt before he slowly walked up to Thomas and sat next to him. He chuckled and said, “Amazing! You’re not bad! You stole my information, then you used a large amount of money and stole the land from me. Excellent! I’m convinced… But…”
Dragon Head changed his tone before he stared at Thomas and said in a cold tone, “Do you really know why I want to buy the land?”
“Hmm?” Thomas frowned slightly.
Was it not for the HX chemical reagent?
Dragon Head chuckled. “Do you think I want the HX? You’re wrong! All the chemical reagents were removed, and the facilities, documents, and traces were also cleaned! It’s impossible to get relevant information about HX now. If they could be obtained, the land would not have been put up for auction.”
If it could be auctioned, it had to be a safe land, and nothing was wrong with it.
Thomas was puzzled, and he asked, “So, why did you still want to bid for it?”
Dragon Head shrugged. “Because I knew that you’d come. You’d try to steal whatever I want, even if it’s just a piece of shit. So, I purposely raised the price for a useless piece of land not because I wanted to get the land, but because I wanted you to steal it and lose some money. Do you understand me?”
‘What…’ Thomas had been an expert at setting people up, but this time, Dragon Head had tricked and fooled him.
He had spent $6,000,000,000 and bought a useless wasteland!
He had even taken funds from the Southland District and Central City. Damn it, he had lost a lot of money.
Dragon Head gently patted Thomas’ shoulder, chuckled, and said, “Things like this will frequently happen in the future. I welcome you to continue competing against me for trash. Haha!”
