Chapter 274 Phone Calls, Ransom
After hanging up Liu Ye’s call, Lu Yu continued to dial a number.
Soon, the Weapon Refining Club president, He Kai, answered the call.
In a dim office, the well-built and muscular He Kai was sitting on an office chair, dealing with the club’s affairs with a heavy head.
When he saw Lu Yu’s call, his face instantly darkened.
The fact that Lu Yu had destroyed the Weapon Refining Club’s mining base had irritated him over these two days!
“Why are you calling? I already gave you the stronghold of the wild forest, didn’t I?”
Hearing He Kai’s low tone, Lu Yu smiled.
“Be careful with your words. You didn’t give it up; I snatched it.”
He Kai gritted his teeth in anger. “Did you call just to piss me off?”
“Have you forgotten the captain of your club’s stronghold is locked up with me?”
He Kai clenched his fists and pounded the table. “What do you want? Release my people!”
“If you want to release him, you can do it yourself. Come to the Battle Pets Club’s stronghold!”
“I’ll go. If you dare to play tricks, I’ll not let you off this easily this time!”
After saying that, he angrily hung up the phone.
“I can hear that he must be furious.” Su Qing smiled.
“He has always had a short temper. It’s normal.”
Following that, Lu Yu dialed up the Pharmaceutical Club’s President, Du Peng.
“Mr. Du, it’s me, Lu Yu. Long time no see.”
Du Peng’s face was also gloomy on the other side of the phone.
“Hah, Lu Yu, it has indeed been a long time. How have you been?”
Du Peng said with a smile. He didn’t seem to be angry at all.
Like Nie Yi, the array mage, Lu Yu knew this guy was a dishonest person.
“I don’t want to spend my time chit-chatting with you. Come to the Battle Pets Club’s stronghold with your money and resources to get your captain back!”
Du Peng gritted his teeth and said unwillingly, “Fine. I’ll come right now, so you just wait…”
He was sensible and knew there was no benefit in being angry with Lu Yu. He might as well smile and discuss matters rationally.
After hanging up the phone, Su Qing immediately quipped, “This person must be unhappy, but he’s sure good at pretending he’s not.”
“What’s the use of that? We’ve occupied their large herb garden, so it’s a given they would be angry.”
Lu Yu dialed the following number. The person who answered the call was Nie Yi from the Array Formation Club.
Ever since Lu Yu beat him up, Nie Yi had a fear of him. He even went to see a professional psychiatrist.
Lu Yu had repeatedly broken his arrays, causing him to doubt his skills. It took him a long time to build up his confidence again.
“Why are you calling? Is something the matter?”
Nie Yi said weakly, still sullen.
He was now constantly afraid that others would learn his array formation in a fight with him, harboring a deep trauma…
“I’ve taken hostage of your Array Formation Club’s stronghold captain. If you want him to return, come to the Battle Pets Club’s stronghold to redeem him.”
“I know, I know. Be nice to him. I’ll be there with the money to exchange for him.”
Array mages were different from other professions. Cultivating an outstanding array mage required a lot of resources and manpower.
Therefore, Nie Yi wouldn’t give up the captain.
After hanging up, Lu Yu stared at the last number for a long time.
The last person was the President of the Battle Pets Club, Zhao Ding!
Lu Yu had many questions about this guy.
He wanted to know if he knew about the cooperation between this stronghold and the Truth Department.
Lu Yu dialed the last number. Yun Zirou and Su Qing were silent as they listened carefully to the call.
Soon, Zhao Ding answered the phone.
“Hello, who is it?”
“It’s me, Lu Yu.”
Zhao Ding paused for a moment and got nervous.
“Why did you call me?”
“You should have received the news that I took down your stronghold.”
“Well, if you want it, I can give it to you.”
Zhao Ding replied casually, ” Since you have unlimited rights to this secret realm, I can’t stop you even if I wanted to.”
His attitude was unusual. Obviously, he was avoiding the talk about the Truth Department.
“I didn’t expect you to be so open-minded, but I have something to ask you.”
Zhao Ding was getting a little impatient. “I’ve already given you the stronghold. What’s the problem?”
“You know about the warehouse in the backyard of this stronghold, right?”
Zhao Ding went silent and didn’t speak for a long time.
“It’s just a warehouse, and there are many strongholds in the Battle Pets Club. Do you think I can remember every single warehouse?”
“But this warehouse is very special, and I saw something disgusting inside.”
Zhao Ding’s heart beat quickly. “You should know that although I’m my club’s president, I don’t have that much power. You don’t have to ask me if I know what these strongholds do!”
Lu Yu nodded slightly. “It seems that you know. I’ll report this matter to the relevant authorities and have them investigate it properly.”
Zhao Ding let out a long sigh. “Is that the only reason you called?”
“I also want you to come over and redeem Liu Yan.”
“Zheng Yi is dead, isn’t he?” Zhao Ding asked.
“That’s right, he’s dead.”
“Alright, I’ve actually wanted to replace Zheng Yi for a long time and let Liu Yan be the captain. Although he’s hot-headed and has a fiery personality, he wouldn’t do that kind of thing at the very least.”
“I’ll be there soon…”
After hanging up the phone, what Lu Yu had to do next was wait. Lu Yu would be raking in a harvest when the five presidents came over.
“Zirou, go and bring the other four captains here.”
Yun Zirou quickly replied, “The one in charge of looking after the four captains is Lin Kang.”
“Then I’ll send him a message.”
Lu Yu took his phone and saw that the group chat was filled with messages.
Lu Yu clicked on it and looked at what the group members were talking about.
“Now the Battle Pets Club’s stronghold is ours!”
“I’m so excited! I can now finally tame a battle pet!”
“The president is just amazing by breaking through five strongholds in a row! It’s really not something an ordinary person can do.”
“The Featherwing Club will definitely become the number one club at Clanorth University in the future!”
Lu Yu smiled faintly and personally messaged Lin Kang.
“Lin Kang, bring the captains to the Battle Pets Club’s stronghold.”
“All of them?”
“That’s right. It’s time for them to prove their worth.”
“Okay, I’ll be right there!”
Lu Yu stood up and walked toward the door.
Yun Zirou and Su Qing followed him.
The three came to the backyard and saw that their club members were already starting to repair the place.
“Alright, everyone, work hard. From now on, this will be your stronghold, so repair it well.”
Time passed by minute by minute.
When it was almost noon, the doorbell rang from the large iron villa’s entrance.
Standing at the door were Lin Kang and the four captains behind him!
