Superstars Of Tomorrow Chapter 462Curly Hair became listless from the mental blow of not being able to flaunt his neck strap.
When Fang Zhao returned from checking on the excavation teams, he saw Nanfeng anxiously talking to Curly Hair. However, Curly Hair was wandering around aimlessly with his head drooped.
Nanfeng hurriedly informed Fang Zhao of Curly Hair's abnormal behavior.
"Boss, does Curly Hair have an upset stomach? Perhaps he isn't used to too many strangers on the island? Or is he sick? He was still fine previously."
Fang Zhao took the leash and motioned to Nanfeng that he would take things from here.
Fang Zhao could roughly guess the reason for this mood when he brought Curly Hair back to the house.
"Curly Hair, I have an assignment for you," Fang Zhao said. Curly Hair would have less time to mull if he had something to do.
Curly Hair raised his head and looked towards Fang Zhao.
"A large warehouse has just been constructed on the southeast part of the island. The excavated fossils are all stored there. Help me go and guard it for a bit. Make sure nobody steals the fossils."
The prehistoric creature buried beneath the island was really huge. There would be some level of difficulty in excavation while minimizing damage to the fossils. Even though there were twenty teams, the excavation process would span more than a few days.
Fang Zhao had constructed a temporary warehouse at the southeast part of the island. Besides fossils, the excavation teams' equipment and resources were also kept there. It also had a temporary rest lounge.
Although a security system was already installed, Fang Zhao trusted Curly Hair's ability. Fang Zhao also took it as an opportunity to divert Curly Hair's attention.
There were too many people on the island as of late. In active areas, Curly Hair needed to be on leash at all times, so his activities were restricted. At least at the warehouse, Curly Hair didn't need to be leashed.
"If your performance is good, I will bring you to another planet to play shortly after," Fang Zhao said.
Curly Hair's eyes lit up immediately.
Curly Hair knew that Fang Zhao would be leaving to participate in a concert on a foreign planet soon and that there was no guarantee he would be brought along. Curly Hair was obviously delighted now when Fang Zhao said this.
Thus, when Nanfeng ended a call and walked back, he saw Curly Hair run like the wind into the warehouse enthusiastically.
"This is?" Nanfeng asked with a skeptical glance at Fang Zhao.
"Guarding the warehouse."
Fang Zhao greeted the staff working over at the warehouse and placed a sign at the entrance that said: Danger! No entry for non-staff!
Staff members going in and out of the warehouse raised their eyebrows when they saw the warning sign.
What was dangerous?
Was such an intense tone warranted?
They had already been working here for two days. Why hadn't they discovered anything dangerous in the warehouse?
The only thing new was a little dog.
"The island owner's dog won't gnaw and damage the bones, right?" someone asked worriedly.
"It won't be able to reach the fossils if we place them on the shelves."
"Since Fang Zhao chose to let it in, he can bear the responsibility himself if anything happens."
Even if the staff of the warehouse didn't like to see a pet dog in such a place, Fang Zhao owned the island. What could they do about it?
Alright, you are the island owner, do as you wish.
Meanwhile, Curly Hair was in full work mode in the warehouse. Curly Hair took his duty very seriously to ensure Fang Zhao would bring him to another planet.
Curly Hair went around the insides of the warehouse once. Every nook and cranny was inspected. Even the tiniest of bugs weren't let off.
After the patrol was done, Curly Hair lay down outside the doors of the warehouse, watching the staff members going in and out. As a serious watchdog, he neither barked nor ran around.
At this time, a yacht was moored a short distance away from the island. There were many other boats trying to get in on the excitement so this yacht wasn't really conspicuous.
"Successfully infiltrated the island. This imitation biotech's camouflage is really good! Looks like we didn't spend the big bucks in vain. That seller didn't lie to us!"
"The manual says that this is the latest in imitation biotechnology that can bypass most civilian security systems. It is really good, but it's pretty expensive and its lifetime is unknown. Almost all of our budget went into this. Unfortunately, because of its small size, it can only fit around twenty kilograms.
"I'm not greedy; just a small bone will do. One or two bones missing from such a huge skeleton wouldn't be noticed."
"Me too, just a tiny bone is enough to satisfy me."
"Let's split the money from the sale!"
"There are guards on night duty in the warehouse. We have to be extra careful."
"Relax, I have already equipped this with tranquilizer darts. They're small enough to go unnoticed, but strong enough to knock out an elephant."
"Fang Zhao was really too impatient to publicize the news of the fossils without proper preparations. A small island like this won't have nearly enough guards. Furthermore, he trusts this so-called intelligent security system too much. He's really too young and doesn't know how quickly security devices need to be upgraded."
"Let's wait for nightfall before taking action?"
"Mmhm, it's more convenient at night."
The sun set, and it gradually became darker.
The excavation teams returned to their own dormitories after an entire day of digging. On the first night, they had been too excited to sleep. Many of them stayed up late on the second night too. Their workload on the third day wasn't too heavy, but it was especially mentally taxing to dig out the bones without damaging them. They weren't willing to leave this job to the robots. Therefore, they wanted to properly rest for the next day.
Given the current speed, the huge beast underground would be completely unearthed in another two more days. They would be able to see the prehistoric giant that had been buried for millions of years!
The excavation teams fell into a deep slumber with smiles on their faces and were oblivious to the many stirring shadows in the darkness.
The island was much quieter at night, and nocturnal bugs began to come out.
A creepy crawly climbed out from the grass headed over for the warehouse.
Onboard a certain yacht in the nearby sea, a few people had their eyes fixed on the display.
The video feed was taken from the point of view of the bug. It had already gotten close to the warehouse and was about to sneak in through a crack in the window.
Their unblinking eyes were fixed on the screen. They watched the creepy crawly enter the warehouse. However, before they even had time to rejoice, an ear-piercing "Bzz" sounded, and connection was lost.
"Were we discovered?"
"Could it be that the security systems were already upgraded?"
"That shouldn't be. This new imitation biotechnology just came out! It wasn't that fast in the past."
"The security system in the warehouse was installed by Fang Zhao's bodyguards and some security company. Perhaps they installed military-grade equipment?"
A stifling silence ensued.
That had cost them most of their savings!
Similar scenes were happening aboard many of the inconspicuous boats in the surrounding sea.
They had spent large sums on the black market to purchase their equipment. Probes, spy cams, and intelligent robots made with this reportedly new imitation biotechnology were sent out, but none returned. Every single one lost connection upon entering the warehouse. Some seemed as though they had been stomped on, while others just suddenly vanished.
Regardless whether they crawled, burrowed, or flew in, all of them met the same outcome.
Even managing to sneak a photo failed, let alone stealing a bone!
These people even made discreet inquiries into which security company Fang Zhao had used. However, none of these people believed the answer.
Clearly, it was just fake news meant to confuse people!
Indeed, more impressive people were more mysterious. Fang Zhao surely had some hidden cards up his sleeves!
Could Fang Zhao really have sought the military for help?
In the newly constructed warehouse on the southeastern side of the island, Curly Hair carefully picked up a severely deformed bug with his mouth and placed it into a box at the corner.
Every twenty could be exchanged for gaming time!
