Chapter 331: Large crisis
Miracle Commerce’s headquarters.
Meng Yingying was sitting at Chu Tian’s side, unable to stop her tears from flowing down. Nangong Yun was beside her comforting her, while Chen Bingyu, Feng Caidie, Yun Yao, and the others all had a painful look on their faces.
There was a group of old man circled to the side whispering to each other. They could not hear what they were discussing, but they all had knit brows and were constantly sighing.
The entire room was filled with a pessimistic feeling.
“Are you done yet? Watching that long, you should have come up with a result, right?” Nangong Yun had a fiery disposition and finally couldn’t stop herself from exploding. She anxiously scratched her head, “Only knowing how to sigh, what are you sighing for! Just tell use the current situation, can we save boss or not?!”
The Meng sisters both focused their minds.
“Don’t rush, don’t rush…..” Zhao Pu gave a few coughs before speaking in a serious voice, “I’ll be frank, the chairman’s situation is very bad. All his organs are failing and his meridians are all shattered, with his spirit energy fading away, but this is not the main cause. The most troublesome part is that the chairman has severely overdrawn his vitality.”
Meng Yingying nervously asked, “What does that mean?”
“Old Zhao’s meaning is that the chairman forcefully used a forbidden technique with large side effects, the price of this forbidden technique should be burning one’s vitality, therefore there is a severe overdraw of vitality. Simply put, if the chairman could live to one hundred before, now he can only live to fifty. If his vitality keeps weakening…..”
“Why is it like this?!”
Everyone revealed looks of astonishment, this side effect was too terrifying! Chu Tian was this young and had injured his vitality this early, wasn’t this very, very bad?
Meng Qingwu finally understood.
Chu Tian had only displayed a small part of that heaven defying power. The main reason for this was not to use this power excessively, not because he wanted to avoid attracting attention, but mainly because it was very dangerous for him!
Meng Yingying was at a loss, “Then what should we do?”
“It is the initial stages of the injury, if he can heal soon, then he can hopefully recover. If it is left for a long time, the lost vitality will disappear and it will be harder than ascending the heavens to recover it.”
Meng Qingwu quickly asked, “What materials do we need? It doesn’t matter how much it costs!”
“Vice chairman, this is not a problem of money. Only with the resources of the Southern Summer Country, we won’t be able to find this level of medicine!”
“We can’t find it in the entire Southern Summer Country?”
The old men looked at each other and said with a sigh, “This is a medicine for overcoming nature, it has to be in the Immortal Grade!”
The girls’ faces all turned pale.
Immortal Grade? Where would they find Immortal Herbs in the Southern Summer Country!
The Southern Summer Country was just a small country, the earth’s spiritual qi was very barren and barely any Sacred Herbs could be grown, how could there be an Immortal Herb? They could only buy it from a large country or an empire, but an Immortal Herb was expensive. Even if Miracle Commerce had made several billion gold coins, but what did this bit of money count for in those places?
Immortal Herbs usually had no market value and even if Miracle Commerce had enough money, it could not be bought whenever one wanted. Chu Tian’s condition could not be dragged on, otherwise there would be serious repercussions if his vitality disappeared. Even an Immortal Herb would not be able to help him at that time.
Meng Yingying said in a choked up voice, “Elder sister, what do we do!”
“Don’t be afraid. No matter what the price, we must save Chu Tian!” Meng Qingwu clenched her fist. No one actually knew that the person feeling the most guilt in this moment was her. Chu Tian was this injured mainly because of her, so she had to save him no matter what, “The Southern Summer does not have the herb, so we’ll search in other countries. I believe we’ll surely be able to find it!”
Meng Qingwu then asked, “When will Chu Tian wake up?”
“That is hard to say.” Zhao Pu stroked his beard, “Not only is the chairman’s body injured, his spirit has also been overdrawn, I’m afraid he won’t wake up in the next two days. I suggest letting the chairman have a proper rest, like this he can recover from his spiritual wounds.”
They could only do this.
“Vice chairman, vice chairman!” A Miracle Commerce worker suddenly ran in in a panic, “The Burning Sun Ruler, the Refined Ruler, and the great scholar are all here. They want to see the chairman!”
The Burning Sun Ruler and Refined Ruler are both here?”
“Yingying, take care of Chu Tian. I’m going out to take a look.”
Meng Qingwu came out with several people. The Burning Sun Ruler was in a set of scarlet red armour and the Refined Ruler was wearing a golden thread armour. There were several dozen important people behind them, including the great scholar Gu Qianqiu.
The Refined Ruler asked, “Where’s Chu Tian? Have him come out!”
“What matters do you have?” Meng Qingwu was a bit afraid of the Refined Ruler. The Shangguan Family were not friendly with Miracle Commerce. There was no guarantee in this period that the Shangguan Family would not do something excessive, “The frontline matters suddenly happened and Chu Tian was helpless in regards to the Southern Summer King’s death. Are you here to condemn him?”
“Mistake! Mistake! Refined Ruler, put away your stink face!” The Burning Sun Ruler looked at the Refined Ruler before saying to Meng Qingwu, “With a disaster over the country, how can the Southern Summer Country go against itself? We already know what happened and Chu Tian has made his contributions. If the frontline matters were to be blamed on anyone, it couldn’t be blamed on Chu Tian. Not to mention Chu Tian was titled the Country Guarding Ruler by my king in the end, his nobility rank is even higher than the two of us!”
“Then you are…..”
“Vice chairman, the Southern Summer Country is already in a life and death crisis.” Gu Qianqiu came out and said, “We have thought it over, but we’re afraid only Chu Tian has a method to turn the tide. We came to see him and ask if he had a plan!”
“So it’s like this…..” Meng Qingwu’s heart sunk down. The Burning Sun and Refined Rulers put down their pride to see Chu Tian, this was grasping at straws and showed just how bad the situation was, “When Chu Tian was coming back, he fought with a War Hounds True Spirit Expert and is now heavily injured. He is in a coma and won’t awaken for some time!”
“Damn!” The Burning Sun Ruler angrily said, “Why is it like this!”
Gu Qianqiu’s face also changed, “The War Hounds Country has already shown signs of setting out, what should we do!”
Meng Qingwu was shocked, “What? They’re coming this fast? The frontline battle was very tragic, don’t they need more time to prepare?”
The Refined Ruler said with a dark face, “After the War Hounds army attack the Southern Summer’s border army, their army was not weakened by much and they have added many siege troops from the War Hound Plains over the past few days. They will reach Imperial City in three days and the Imperial City defenses are not enough to stop the army personally led by the Fang King.”
What should they do?
“Every county is rushing to Imperial City, but the garrisons can’t come north in time.” The Burning Sun Ruler tightly clenched his fists, “There’s no other way. Even if we die, we can only fight this battle!”
This battle had a high chance of defeat!
The Southern Summer Country had four hundred thousand brave soldiers as well as the Burning Sun Ruler and the Refined Ruler, two powerful True Spirit Experts. Adding in the various garrisons rushing over from the counties, there was enough battle strength. Only by fighting through conventional methods, the Southern Summer Country was guaranteed to lose. So they came to ask Chu Tian, hoping that Chu Tian would have a few tricks for the Southern Summer Country.
Meng Qingwu did not think it would be this coincidental.
Chu Tian wouldn’t wake up for this period of time, but who else had his skills in the Southern Summer Country?
If the country was lost, not only would Miracle Commerce lose their footing, if they lost Miracle Commerce, what would they use to trade for the Immortal Herb if they found it? The War Hounds attack would come soon and they couldn’t escape this large battle, so what should they do?
If it was Chu Tian, what would he do?
Chu Tian would always have an idea to turn the tide, there was nothing that could baffle him!
The reason why the frontline fortress was in such distress this time was purely because Chu Tian was not clear on the circumstances and didn’t have all the information he needed. Otherwise with Chu Tian’s attitude and skills, even the powerful War Hounds Country could not make him suffer a loss!
Meng Qingwu suddenly felt helpless. She was just an outstanding merchant without Chu Tian, she could not do anything big!
Wait a minute!
There was something!
It wasn’t certain Imperial City would lose!
The Calm Martial Ruler had secretly constructed a weapon factory outside the city and it had at least over ten thousand pieces of Source Energy Weapons. If these Source Energy Weapons were used to equip the soldiers, it would greatly enhance the power of the garrison!
Meng Qingwu immediately told the Burning Sun Ruler and the Refined Ruler her idea.
The two of them were very shocked. Imperial City had already prepared this many Source Energy Weapons? The two of them did not know about this at all, the Southern Summer King had hid it too well!
Gu Qianqiu also said, “If there are enough Source Energy Weapons, this fight may be possible. Only the Source Energy Weapon Factory has only operated for a short period of time and at most over ten thousand Source Energy Weapons were made. Although they will have a large effect on the battle, they will not be able to turn the tides!”
“If the Source Energy Weapons aren’t enough, we still have to prepare something else?”
“What is it?”
“You all just wait!”
Meng Qingwu returned to the room and took out a communication device, immediately calling Central State’s Yun Sect.
“Vice chairman, is it you?” Yun Tianhe’s voice came from the communication device, “I heard about the large matter in Imperial City, the Divine Wind Marquis has already left last night. What is the situation over there right now?”
“Time is of the essence right now, let’s not talk about this!” Meng Qingwu did not want to explain everything, “Has the Yun Sect had any success researching the ‘Source Energy Bomb’ over the past few days?”
“We’ve taken the initial steps, but it still can’t match the chairman’s requirements.”
Meng Qingwu felt a bit of light, “Use the Image Transferring Mirror to sent the technology over to me, this might be related to Imperial City’s destiny so be quick!”
Yun Tianhe knew Imperial City’s current situation and immediately said, “Alright, I’ll send it now.”
“Wait a minute, I’m not done yet.”
“Does the vice chairman still have something else to discuss?”
“Immediately inform the Giant Shark Gang’s Boss Yu to make the fleet head north to Cang State’s port. If there is a mishap in Imperial City, perhaps they can help us escape. Even if we can’t escape Imperial City, they can at least help the Calm Martial Ruler and protect the final elite troop of the Southern Summer Country!”
Yun Tianhe was very shocked, was the Imperial City situation already that bad?
Meng Qingwu was not as impulsive as Chu Tian, she was always discreet with anything she did, so she prepared an escape route beforehand. If Imperial City couldn’t be defended, Miracle Commerce’s only road to survival was on the water.
The War Hounds lived on the prairie their entire life and mainly had land cavalry in their army. If they escaped on the water, it would not be easy for them to chase them down.
“That’s right, there’s also something else….” Meng Qingwu would not forget the most important matter, “Activate all the Miracle Commerce stations and send a purchase order across the nation.”
Yun Tianhe calmed down, “Vice chairman, please give your order.”
“We need a level two Immortal Herb, one that can restore innate vitality.”
“What? Immortal Herb! How can this be bought in the Southern Summer Country? Even if there was one, what can Miracle Commerce even use to buy it?”
“I know it is very hard, but this is related to Chu Tian’s survival so we have to try every possibility!”
“Could the chairman be…..” Yun Tianhe’s voice trembled a bit before he said in a hoarse voice, “Be assured, this old man will do everything possible!”
“I’ll leave Miracle Commerce’s survival all up to you!”
Meng Qingwu let out a long sigh after hanging up the communication device. She could only do this for now, as for the final outcome, Meng Qingwu could not predict it at all.
