The Rise of Otaku - Chapter 323
The celestial vision’s investigation of Heifengzhai has never stopped, especially the King of Thieves. Even though all the people in Luhua City thought that Shang Yue was a reliable person, he still believed that the reason why Heifengzhai came to Luhua City was not that simple.
After so many days of investigation, the King of Thieves reached a conclusion.
In the inner city, after everyone was asked to leave the room, the King of thieves told Zhou Yu his conclusion. Zhou Yu could not help but say in surprise: “What, Shang Yue is a spy of the fallen city? Do you have definitive evidence?”
“There is no hard evidence yet, but I went to the Fallen City and found that the traces of Heifengzhai have been wiped out completely, but it made it even more suspicious. In addition, there are rumors that before the departure of Heifengzhai, high priest Lin Ke and Shang Yue had a secret discussion in the black fire forest. The main people that pushed the sanction on Luhua city were Tuhari from the starlight city, and Lin Ke from the Fallen City.”
As long as there was the slightest suspicion, the celestial vision would not ignore it. This was its job. Since there was no definite evidence, Zhou Yu could not expel Heifengzhai.
“Okay, don’t worry about the fallen city. You just need to pay close attention to the people of Heifengzhai in Luhua City. If they really did something that is not good for Luhua City, you can expel them directly without my order.”
The King of thieves could be trusted 100%. Although Heifengzhai has helped Luhua City a lot, its arrival was indeed not normal and suspicious. Of course, from the bottom of his heart, Zhou Yu still hoped that Heifengzhai would stay. After all, only with the people from both the starlight city and the fallen city could Luhua city really be regarded as a city of chaos.
The king of thieves retreated after receiving the instructions from Zhou Yu. At the same time, in the happy forest, Shang Yue and his good friend Lin Wumo were drinking in a small building inside a small bamboo forest.
“Got a message from High Priest Lin Ke. He hopes that we can gain the trust of Luhua City as soon as possible. The underground project has been started for some time, and it may be connected to the most mysterious underground kingdom in Luhua City at any time. I’m really looking forward to seeing the people that can heal Mojibake curse.”
Lin Wumo still looked like a calm and relaxed scholar, but this passage has made it clear that they were spies sent by the high priest, and their target was the mysterious people in the underground city, but no one knew if the specific task was a simple investigation or more radical actions.
Shang Yue shook his head and said: “Everyone else is easy, but the King of Thieves is not easy to handle. After all, he was originally the chief of investigation in the starlight knight. Moreover, he was Zhou Yu’s personal knight. Zhou Yu trusts him more than us. As long as he catches a little clue, we will not be trusted by him.”
The hostility of the King of thieves towards Heifengzhai has been revealed from day one, and it has not reduced any since. If they wanted to complete the mission of the high priest, they had to deal with this person.
The noises caused by the wind blowing through leaves concealed the two people’s conversations. The only thing that was known was that the day when the mysterious underground city was connected, Luhua city’s quiet and peaceful day would disappear.
Moreover, it was not just one group that was lurking in Luhua City.
Due to the implementation of the underground city project, the mysterious people who broke the curse of Mojibake would be known to the world. How could such a major event not be taken seriously by those important and powerful people?
Luhua City was a city of chaos, where there was no opposition between starlight force and fallen force, no matter what belief people had, they could communicate with each other normally here. In this way, it was much more convenient to spread the news. In the past, the people from the starlight city and the fallen city needed to secretly find a place to meet up, but now, they didn’t need to hide it in Luhua city at all.
Therefore, in the outermost periphery of Luhua City, the intelligence industry has become prosperous. A bookstore in an amusement park that specialized in selling cartoon magazines was actually the largest intelligence agency in Luhua City.
The most recently circulated news on the market was that the underground project of Luhua City has discovered huge treasures, which directly led to a sharp increase in the number of adventurers in the amusement park. Some people came to check out what kind of treasures it would be, while others wanted to take advantage of it. In short, the atmosphere in Luhua City became tenser.
Zhou Yu wants to build an open and free city, and also a tourist business city. Those who applied for permanent residents would have an observation period, but it was impossible to investigate ordinary tourists. So at this critical moment, the city of chaos was really a bit chaotic, because people from all kinds of places started to gather here.
Zhou Yu was also looking forward to meeting the mysterious people underground. These guys were so great that they not only could help the amusement park to protect the network information, but they could also solve the scary Mojibake curse. The thing that made Zhou Yu curious the most was that he wanted to find out what exactly was those people researching under the ground.
Moreover, Luhua city just happened to be the place that had a crack between the ACG world and the real world, so if this was not the reason why the mysterious people chose to live under the ground of Luhua city, then Zhou Yu really didn’t know what it was.
This crack was also very important for Zhou Yu, so naturally, he was also very concerned about it.
Soon, Zhou Fu found that Zhou Yu, who had no interest in the amusement park business, came to the construction site for inspection almost every day, and every time he would check out the excavated pit before returning to his house. It made Zhou Fu wonder what he was looking at.
In the room, Rubin the Hedgehog reported, “Lord, the underground people have transferred important items to the safe area. Now the construction project is about to reach the underground research institute. Due to changes in the underground environment, at least more than half of the area of the research institute will be destroyed. So don’t forget that you will owe us, the underground people, a living area, and we will naturally be loyal to you.”
“Understand, it won’t make you homeless. However, if I ask about the results of the research, will you still refuse to explain it?”
Rubin the Hedgehog thought about it and said, “Well, since we have reached this point, I will not hide it. As far as I know, the reason why you will gain the power of The ACG World is closely related to their research.”
Zhou Yu was shocked, originally he thought that the eye of the ACG World was a gift, but he did not expect that it was because of the research of the underground people. Just when he wanted to ask clearly, Rubin the Hedgehog shook his head and said. “I’m just a peripheral person, I don’t know the specific situation. If you want to know everything, just ask them yourself in the future.”
After that Rubin the Hedgehog simply left, leaving Zhou Yu scratching his head in confusion.
