Dragon Head left the site arrogantly. He was victorious in this battle, as he had framed Thomas.
The people around also cast different gazes at Thomas. Some mocked him, some pitied him, while others were indifferent. In this huge gamble, Thomas had lost completely.
Was that really the case?
Forty minutes later, Thomas returned to Food and Medicine Hall. He silently walked to an empty table and sat down. Pisces had been by Thomas’ side, but he dared not say a word.
They had lost terribly this time. It was $6,000,000,000!
They had bought useless land with no value at all, falling into Dragon Head’s trap.
Most importantly, if they encountered the same situation again, what should they do?
Should they still stop Dragon Head?
If Dragon Head attempted to do more bad things, should Thomas still put in the effort to stop him?
If Thomas did not stop Dragon Head, would he not become overconfident?
However, if Thomas stopped him, it was likely that Thomas would encounter a situation like today again.
Dragon Head had set up a trap and waited for them to jump into it. By the time they realized it, they discovered that Dragon Head had no plans to buy the land in the first place.
He had done everything just to waste their resources. Now, they finally understood why Dragon Head did not confront Declan and Phoebe when they were by his side. Dragon Head wanted them to pass the messages to Thomas, and he would use these messages to ruthlessly attack Thomas.
Would Thomas know which message was real, and which was fake?
He would not. If he just guessed, he would not be able to defeat Dragon Head.
The situation was quite disadvantageous. So, Thomas was in an unprecedented crisis now, and Pisces dared not walk forward to talk to Thomas because he had also realized the same thing.
Whatever he said now would be unnecessary.
“Sigh…” Pisces let out a long sigh and sat down unhappily.
The feeling of being fooled by the enemy was incredibly upsetting.
Despite that, Thomas suddenly turned around and looked at him. He smiled brightly as he said, “Why do you look so unhappy?”
Did Thomas still have to ask?
Pisces wore a bitter expression and said, “We’ve been scammed out of $6,000,000,000! Can I still feel happy?”
Thomas chuckled. “Did we get scammed?”
“What? We just spent $6,000,000,000 on a useless piece of land. Isn’t that being scammed? Dragon Head planned to deceive us from the beginning! He never intended to buy it!”
Thomas smiled faintly and nonchalantly said, “Is that the so-called scam you’re talking about?”
He shook his head and continued to say, “Do you think I didn’t take any precautions or didn’t come up with any plans before I spent that much money?”
“Huh?” Pisces was stunned before he asked, “Commander, you mean… You’ve been prepared since the beginning? What did you prepare?”
“You’ll find out soon.” Thomas pointed at a big table. “Clean up the table. Some guests will come later.”
“Guests? Who are they?”
Thomas’ words confused Pisces. Why would Thomas want to meet some foreigners at this time?
What was he planning to do?
Although Pisces did not understand, he still followed Thomas’ request. He cleaned up the table and prepared some food.
As soon as he placed a bottle of red wine down, a few black sedans arrived at the door. The cars’ doors were opened, and some foreigners stepped out. One of them was wearing a professional suit, and he looked like a boss.
Pisces narrowed his eyes and found the man quite familiar. When he thought about it, he realized that this man was the person in charge of Disney in their country!
