The two finished discussing and divided up their jobs. Bai Shixin would use his position as a Military Advisor to placate the people, and Bai Shifu would quickly move the troops to enter the city.
When the Elder Ancestor was around, only a few ordinary public security personnel were needed to maintain order. There was no need for a large army to defend with.
Now that the Elder Ancestor was absent, foreign troops entered the city. There were no imperial guards inside, so it would be easy to suppress the situation.
“There’s no time to lose, we should act quickly. Right, before we do, there’s someone who needs to be eliminated.” Bai Shixin’s eyes grew cold.
“I know. It’s time to take that indecisive scum’s life.” Bai Shifu immediately understood what the other party meant. He prepared to leave with a malicious grin on his face.
“Brother, be careful. If you discover anything abnormal, inform me as soon as possible. I have reinforcements.” Bai Shixin reminded.
Bai Shifu’s heart trembled again at his words. He understood what he meant. It was to remind him not to make any decisions himself.
Demonkind had always been weak in nature. The reason he got close to Bai Shixin was the same as why penguins huddled together for warmth. They were both Descended Greater Rats from the Upper Realm on the same boat.
He needed to borrow the other party’s brains to be able to survive well in this world. The two’s relationship was a mess.
He only to let the other party be the brains because his brains were good.
After all, he knew very well that in the Era of Vitality, although strength was necessary to survive in this kind of dangerous world, brains were equally important as well.
If you could not become a powerhouse, you would need a better brain in order to survive under the eyes of the powerhouses.
If others wanted to survive, they would have to rely on better brains.
He left with a heart full of worries and wondered if the alliance today was the right thing to do. He could only hope that Bai Shixin would not turn out to be the second Elder Ancestor.
Or perhaps people could change?
As he was in charge of the job of spying on the humans before, his brain was not lacking. However, that was not his main line.
In fact, Bai Shixin was the one most fit for espionage work, but the Elder Ancestor did not allow him to be responsible for it, showing that he already had scruples before.
Now the rafters that the Elder Ancestor placed were rotting, but an excellent foundation was cheaper for others. The affairs of the world really were inconstant.
After Bai Shifu left Bai Shixin’s house, he immediately called his subordinates to ask the garrison to enter the city.
After a few short orders, he called two capable people he trusted guarding outside the door and impatiently rushed to Nie Yuan’s former residence.
However, after rushing to his house, they found that it was completely barren. The house was deserted as if no one had lived there for a few days already.
“Damn it, that brat’s quite smart. He ran away pretty quickly.” Bai Shifu was slightly annoyed and pointed towards the floor.
Suddenly, a flaming inferno started raging in the house. At least he vented some of his resentment.
For that lowly local rat to climb above him was something that he had been sullen on for a long time.
When the other party had defected, he had been stationed outside. He could not leave the station to give chase without the Elder Ancestor’s orders. Now that he wanted to eliminate the traitor, he had actually run away in advance. It really was frustrating.
Someone as strong as the Elder Ancestor had been so easily suppressed, but that weakling had been able to escape time and time again. He really had Lady Luck on his side.
However strong you are, there would always someone stronger. Although the lion seemed to be extremely strong, it was the antelope that was superior in survival.
Bai Shifu barely vented his anger and immediately returned to his own office to make arrangements for entering the city.
The places where he had to dispatch troops to control, and the places that needed to be purged earlier, everything had to be carried out according to Bai Shixin’s instructions. There were a plethora of things to tackle, but the bottom line was that orders were to be carried out, anyone refusing to comply would be killed!
He had asked a question in the previous discussion. Would such a large scale bloodline purging attract Vigilante A’s interfere?
Bai Shixin had placatingly said, “Vigilante A only cares if one is good or evil. He won’t care about inner conflicts like these. There’s nothing here about right or wrong, only survival of the fittest where the strong live. Of course, you need to be careful not to let your subordinates roam too freely. Remember at all costs that they are not to disturb with the civilians’ everyday life.”
Bai Shifu recalled that statement and gave strict order to his subordinates not to cause any unnecessary ramifications, lest this good situation collapsed again.
While the Greater Rats were struggling amongst themselves, at this time, a young man with sharp eyes and his companion sat in the Golden Train leading to Morality City.
He turned away with a far look and said coldly, “Just you wait. Whatever’s mine will eventually return to my hands.”
The Truth Department Headquarters.
Ren Ruofeng was making a report.
“One reporting, after Elder Ancestor Bai was suppressed, Bai Shixin began to seek control over the Greater Rats. We’ve already dispatched the spiritually-controlled mech army to closely monitor the Greater Rat Kings everywhere and prevent them from suddenly causing chaos.
“Once Bai Shixin succeeds the position, since he has the Heavenly Oath, the Greater Rats will become cooperative partners with China, and the two sides will carry out deep-seated cooperation in a series of industries. For example, underground energy input, aboveground garbage recycling, as well as underground agriculture and mining minerals… After the moon crisis, a new round of economic development will treat this as an opportunity to start.”
“I suggest that we make overall arrangements in advance and allocate funds to these industries in order to meet future economic outbreaks.”
“After the Greater Rat Clan swears allegiance, it’ll be an opportunity to split apart the new Demon Alliance and eliminate those die-hards, further promote the integration of demon and men, enhance the source of labor in the Era of Vitality, and expand the number of rich manufacturers. We can also further absorb outstanding demons into China’s culture and lay a foundation for our leadership in the Era of Vitality.
The several big shots in the audience nodded as they listened, expressing their satisfaction.
After laying out such a long-term plan, it had finally sorted out. The truth was revealed and unexpectedly came to an end in this way.
Elder Hai nodded and laughed, “Haha, good job, Little Ren. They’re on their last legs today. All of that Old Bai’s calculations ended up in him making bridal clothes for us 1 . I bet he must be feeling something quite special underneath Morality City.
Hallmaster Feng scoffed, “This is a rightful end for a traitor. Serves him right.”
After all, they were all big shots, so venting their emotions was only momentary. They very quickly turned their attention on how to fully utilize the advantages of the Greater Rat Clan.
Principal Xu opened his mouth to speak, “I think that we should first make these demons Chinese. Old Bai had ulterior motives and long since promoted the Chinese language among the clan as well as stole human technology. This has laid out the foundation for us. We only need to integrate the essence of Chinese culture into them and educate them. Naturally, we’ll get twice the results with half the effort.”
“That’s not a thing,” Hallmaster Feng suddenly opposed, “demons are demons. If we teach them, it’ll only be eliminating our advantages. The nomads and Tibetans far away, and the small neighboring countries nearby also learned our culture and technology but ended up fighting against us. If you ask me, we should use economic means to colonize them and let them serve as low-cost laborers. We can’t teach them our culture and technology, especially our various traditional virtues.
“Hallmaster Feng, aren’t your words to closed off? Even if we don’t teach them, won’t they just learn themselves? The Internet is so developed that it’s impossible to close it off. On the contrary, it’s better to guide them systematically so they don’t make any detours.” Principal Xu shook his head.
The two sides quickly started a heated debate, but the other big shots did not stop them. Instead, they were enjoying the show.
This was a great victory. The discussion now was on how to divide the fruits of victory. Whatever the outcome, China would surely usher in a great development in the end.
