Kanita thought quickly and said, “My father was training behind closed doors. Unless there was a very urgent military situation, otherwise, even I can’t meet him. I would like to ask sir first, what is the matter actually?”
Kanita’s sentence was not completely perfunctory. Josh was indeed training a while ago, but it was now over. This human came very strangely. Despite Samuel’s relationship, it is only a one-sided story. It is impossible to bring “Charles” to Josh without making things clear first. In case of any wrongdoing, wouldn’t it implicate me and give Joseph a chance to defeat me completely?
However, the war between Demon Realm and the human world would not begin until 200 years from now. The probability of a human coming to assassinate a Demon Realm lord was very small. Kanita was more concerned about what he could gain in this matter.
“This is something that benefits both parties, and the benefits are huge.”
Benefits? Kanita was immediately focused, but he was emotionless on the surface, “Huge benefits? Please forgive me, Mr. Samuel comes from the human world and this is Demon Realm. I really can’t think what huge benefits sir can bring us.”
“Charles” was naturally Chen Rui who activated the [Camouflage] technique. In the face of Kanita’s doubts, he shook his head, “I’m sorry. I can’t disclose it too clearly, but what I can tell you is how to cooperate successfully. The gain will be twice, three times or more of the input. Of course, this input must reach a certain amount. Otherwise, it will not be able to meet the needs to generate revenue.”
Hearing this huge return, Kanita’s heart skipped but remained calm, “It really is a huge benefit, but I can’t think of why is there such an enormous benefit?”
“Don’t question the power of Kemplot who is the first commercial family of human! Human economy and commerce are by no means comparable to your barren Demon Realm!” Chen Rui exuded a terrifying momentum. Similarly, Samuel’s face showed a proud smile.
Kanita once heard Samuel occasionally mention that his family was the first commercial family in the empire, and their financial resources were quite strong. It was far better than the Demon Realm family. He frowned and said, “If so, why did sir come to Demon Realm? You can find a bigger and safer collaborator in the human world. As far as I know, coming here through the space channel alone will take a great risk, let alone the hostility of demons to the human race.”
Samuel interjected, “Sir Kanita, you have no idea that my family recently…”
“Samuel!” Chen Rui stopped what Samuel was about to say. “We don’t have much time. You have been in Demon Realm for some time. You should have a certain understanding of the situation here. I order you to leave this place immediately, and look for a truly capable collaborator with me.”
Samuel hesitated a little and replied affirmatively, “Yes!”
“Please wait a moment!” Kanita quickly digested what was revealed in just a few words. The Kemplot Family has a certain situation, and Charles has a relatively tight time to complete this matter. In any case, this may be my crucial opportunity to reverse my current predicament.
“Demons,” Chen Rui looked at Kanita lightly, and a fierce murderousness slowly radiated out, “Want us to stay?”
Samuel said, “Sir Kanita, thank you for taking care of me during this time. I don’t want to have any conflict with you, please let us leave.”
“If Sir Samuel wants to go, there is no one in Town Moling who can stop you, let alone Sir Charles.” Kanita quickly shook his head, “Currently, my father has the strongest power among the four lords of the Fallen Angel Empire. With my relationship, I am the most suitable partner for cooperation. If Mr. Charles wants to turn to other collaborators, I’m afraid you will take a lot of detours. There should not be too much time for the two of you to waste right?”
“Your observance of details impresses me, Sir Kanita.” Chen Rui put aside his murderous aura at Samuel’s signal.
“As a possible collaborator, I just want to be able to learn more about it.” Kanita seemed calmer, and he slowly let go of his hand. That was his life-saving item when his life was in a crisis.
Chen Rui’s eyes lit up, “Collaborator? Can your words represent the sir lord?”
“No, father’s training will take a while to end.” Kanita shook his head, “I mean sir can try to cooperate with me for a while before that. When father ends the training, as long as there is something solid as proof, I can guarantee that I can definitely persuade my father to agree.”
“This suggestion sounds good.” Chen Rui revealed a pondering look, “I need a large number of light crystal coins now… Oh, it should be called magic crystal coins here. Do you have the capability to supply this?”
Crystal mines were non-attribute energy resources. Both humans and demons could directly absorb the power to assist in training, so they were universal currencies in both worlds. Although there were many human or demon kingdoms and empires in history who issued their own exclusive currency, it had been eliminated with the passage of time. Only this hard currency crystal coin had been used up till this day. It was just like the gold which Chen Rui recognized in another world.
Kanita was currently short of money, so he frowned and did not speak when he heard a lot of money was needed.
“This supply is not free, and you can get a very generous return. The sooner you invest, the higher the return. It is the initial period now, so the return rate can be doubled. When everything is stable, the return rate will decline. For example, if you invest 10 million light crystal coins now, you can get at least 20 million returns during the start-up period. But when all projects start to continue to operate, this return rate will stabilize at about 10% to 20%. You can only get a return of about 12 million.”
Kanita was taken aback. This was equivalent to a loan. He had tried several times to invest, and the rate of return could reach 200% in a short period of time. It was absolutely profitable. Even in the later period, as long as the funds accumulated to a corresponding extent, he could continue to obtain 10% to 20%. It was also a stable and abundant economic source.
The question is, how can I believe an unfamiliar human?
“Brother, let me briefly explain to Sir Kanita!” Samuel said, “To be honest, something happened to my family after I came to Demon Realm. My family has suffered from the second prince, Garfield’s, conspiracy sanctions because we are in different forces. As the funding sources of all parties are frozen, the Crystal City constructed by the order of His Majesty Lex is stuck in the final stage of completion. At the same time, many investment projects are forced to suspend because of the cash flow problems in the start-up funds. In addition, due to the enemy family’s interference, previous allies either wait-and-see or turn their back against us. We can’t get enough funding… Let’s just say that it is a more critical moment now, so my brother took the risk to venture into Demon Realm to seek a partner.”
Kanita nodded. The Kemplot Family is probably at the critical juncture of life and death, but all parties are suppressing and watching indifferently. Before that, Samuel had always seemed proud and self-sustaining without any slight nervousness or uneasiness. It seems that as he said, the family’s sanctions should have happened after he came to Demon Realm. Otherwise, Samuel would never stay in this little Town Moling. He would have gone to the estate directly to contact the lord.
“Samuel, you have said enough!” Chen Rui frowned, “Mr. Kanita, with your wisdom, you should be able to judge that this is a thing that is beneficial to both parties. As long as you can get enough start-up funds, the Kemplot Family can make a comeback in one fell swoop. After completing Crystal City’s construction and maintaining the operation of investment projects, we will regain the right to speak in front of Lex the Great. The benefits that can be obtained are naturally huge by then. This is the reason for what I proposed earlier. The return rate will be in folds during the start-up stage, but when everything is stable, this return rate will definitely decrease.”
Kanita carefully calculated for a while. After relating to Samuel’s performance, he felt that this matter might really be real. However, he needed to take some risk: First, the situation of the Kemplot Family must be very critical, so it is unknown whether they can turn the table; Second, the Kemplot Family was in the human world after all. Even if there is really a profit, he may not be able to obtain the benefits from Demon Realm faraway as there is no corresponding guarantee.
Chen Rui seemed to see through his concerns and said in a timely manner, “In order to show sincerity and ensure the smooth progress of the cooperation, I’m willing to provide treasures of equal or super value as collateral for the first batch of funds.”
Super value treasures as mortgage? Kanita’s eyes brightened. This way, those two concerns were gone. For him, it was a godsend opportunity. If he could grasp it, he could certainly get rid of the biggest financial predicament now and gain the upper hand in his competition with Joseph.
“What I want to know is the amount of the first fund you need?” Kanita thought about it and asked, “When can I get a return?”
It seemed that the fish had begun to take the bait. Chen Rui immediately answered this question, “The most urgent task was to unfreeze the most important investment projects as soon as possible, and return some of the precious funds as soon as possible. The second step is to gradually start activating the remaining projects to ensure the operation and profit of the huge commercial system recovery. After all the conditions are complete, the last will be to complete Crystal City’s construction.”
“The first step to unfreeze is the most important. The first batch of funds that needs to be invested is at least 40 million black crystal coins. At present, I’m still 7 million short, and it will be returned in installments. The first phase is 3 million; the second phase is 5 million; the third phase is 6 million with a total of 14 million. The first and second phases are the fastest, and the money should be fully refunded in 1 month. In the third phase, it is necessary to wait for the profit to reach the corresponding number, so the time taken will be longer. I estimate it to be within three months.”
7 million black crystal coins! Kanita gasped. As one of the four major estates, the Red Spirit Estate was already rich, yet the tax for the entire estate was only about 5 million black crystal coins, with no additional expenses included.
This number was astounding. However, he could make a net profit of 1 million in the second period. This profit was indeed very high and worthy.
“To be honest, 7 million was just a fraction to me in the past. Last year, our Kemplot Family paid 4 billion black crystal coins to Dragon Bright Empire. This is just the result of being suppressed by the second prince. The amount was not this little in the past years.”
This number was not made up. Moreover, the taxation of a building in a developed city could be equal to that of a city in the mainland of that world.
Chen Rui sighed, “The world is unpredictable. I didn’t expect that one day I would come to Demon Realm for an adventure because of the mere 7 million black crystal coins.”
“Mere” 7 million… Kanita swallowed hard in his throat. I have long heard the prosperity of the human world, but I did not expect it to reach this level. A family pays 4 billion black crystal coins tax!
If this 4 billion, no, even if only 7 million is given to Town Moling, it is definitely not just what it is now. It will at least be double in terms of prosperity or personal strength, and my financial condition will be wealthy.
The most important thing is that this is only the first step! As long as I participate, the financial resources will be surging in. As long as I have sufficient financial support, it is definitely not a problem to defeat Joseph at that time.
This is a great opportunity, and it is too timely! It is simply the light of hope in the darkness- if everything is true.
Kanita was not blinded by huge profits. After all, Samuel and Charles were humans, “If I can provide this fund, how can you ensure that the return will reach Demon Realm safely?”
“I did take a lot of risks this time, but as long as the plan is confirmed, I can use the secret treasure to establish a fixed space coordinate here. Half of this secret treasure is in the human world. We can use some precious materials as a safe energy to transmit to and from. It’s a pity that there can only be one person at a time. Plus, Demon Realm’s magic crystal coins have a certain dark elemental aura, so we need to think hard of a way to remove it…” Chen Rui said in a deep voice, “Up till now, sir should understand why I came here. You should also know that my time is very precious. Should you let me meet with Sir Lord as soon as possible to discuss cooperation matters?”
Kanita’s thought quickly and replied, “Why do you have to see the lord? I think sir needs the funds most, instead of the identity of the partner.”
Chen Rui’s eyes narrowed, “You mean…”
Kanita had decided. He took a deep breath and replied, “I can provide 7 million.”
Even after 100 years of accumulation, it was quite difficult to collect the money in this difficult period. It could be said that Kanita had exhausted everything, but he could not let go of this opportunity or it would not come again. If Charles went to find other collaborators, then he would miss this great opportunity.
“This is just the first batch of capital invested in the first step. A far greater amount is needed in the later stage. The goal of the Kemplot Family is not only to lift the crisis, but also to completely overturn it.” Chen Rui did not easily agree, “Are you sure that you have this capability?”
The more he had such an attitude, the more reassured Kanita was. If there is such a profit, of course, I can’t manage it alone, but the most profitable first phase investment must not be missed.
“As long as you can prove the feasibility of this plan, I can introduce and guarantee you in front of my father. A solid reality is the best reason to persuade.” Kanita said confidently, “But to prove your sincerity, I want to see your mortgage treasures.”
Verbal statements cannot be taken as proof; the most important is the actual thing.
The mortgage displayed by the human was some equipment, and all of them were actually of legendary grade! The brilliance of the equipment alone almost blinded Kanita’s eyes. He was sure that he had never seen so many legendary grade items in his life. Moreover, these were only a part of it.
Kanita had a discerning eye for goods. Some of the precious value of these equipment couldn’t be measured by money at all. He was firmly determined on the spot as a smile carved on his face.
Similarly, Kanita’s new collaborator, “Charles”, was also smiling.
Shouldn’t Chen Rui deal with Joseph first? Why was he ‘helping’ Joseph to weaken Kanita?
