The next morning, Jiang Chen sent Liu Yao on the plane .
Along the way, other than when they were in the taxi, Liu Yao held onto Jiang Chen’s arm with her body almost dangling onto his .
Their "intimate" stance made all those passing by, glance at them .
The reason why Liu Yao was this clingy was not due to some impure reason, but because Jiang Chen made her too tired last night .
Till now, her legs were still quivering .
"Didn’t we agree that if I barked, I surrender?" Liu Yao almost tripped as she pinched Jiang Chen’s waist out of embarrassment .
Whenever she remembered she had to pretend to be a puppy and bark, she felt flustered and ashamed .
"Haha, sorry, that voice was too attractive . " Jiang Chen let the hand pinch freely around his waist as he smirked, "Also, did I say even if you surrender, I will let you go?"
"Pervert . " Liu Yao rolled her eyes at the grinning Jiang Chen as she stopped in front of the boarding gate .
She combed her hair to the side, used all the power in her body to stand up straight, tipped her toe, and pecked on Jiang Chen’s lips .
"Remember to miss me . "
"Mhmm . "
It was not a long goodbye; there was no need for words .
Liu Yao picked up her small luggage . She left, but her heart remained .
Jiang Chen looked at the flight depart; he smiled at the clouds in the distance before the smile gradually returned to calmness .
"Now that the vacation is over, time to work . "
Jiang Chen shook his head as he left the airport .
He didn’t return to the hotel but took a taxi to the rural area .
In a park, Jiang Chen spotted Zhang Yapin in a black tee, looking around on the bench .
"Why did you choose to meet in the park? I rather sit in a coffee shop and chat slowly with a cup of coffee . " Sitting on the other side of the bench, Jiang Chen sat nonchalantly .
"Because of privacy," Zhang Yapin’s expression looked tense, but his voice was calm .
"You are overthinking things . This is New Zealand, not Pannu . " Looking at his anxiousness, Jiang Chen sighed .
He originally thought the Pannu opposing party would take a week to give him a response, but from the looks of it, they couldn’t wait anymore .
"It is always better to be careful . "
Jiang Chen shrugged without denying . Then he dove right into the topic .
"Since you are here, then your response must be yes . Am I correct?"
"Yes, we don’t have any other choices," Zhang Yapin nodded as he squeezed those words out with difficulty .
"Before we discuss the support agreement . Can I know what caused you to decide so quickly?" Jiang Chen smiled .
When he heard Jiang Chen’s words, Zhang Yapin fell into silence .
"It is blood . "
He slowly told Jiang Chen the story .
Two days ago, just when he returned to the Pannu Island, the political situation began to deteriorate .
Everything was because of a Han's arrival .
Wang Tianfeng, Linhua Group . The business representative stationed on Pannu Islands . This Han businessman seemed to have a great conversation with Johnny as they appeared in multiple important occasions standing side by side while investigating the investment environment, and finally signed an agreement known as the fuse .
President Edward sold the area along the sea of Coro Island as well as the majority of the island on the second biggest island Edgar Island at a price of 5 USD per square meter to Johnny International . Linhua Group will be responsible for building the tourism area and necessary infrastructure . The one hundred million USD in land sales, only half of it flowed into the treasury, while the other fifty million USD flowed into Edward’s account in New Zealand .
The confiscation of land caused a large number of farmers and fishers to lose their homes . The compensation of 2 USD per square meter was not enough to cover their loss .
The dissatisfaction caused unrest, and the war hawk of the Liberal party saw this as an opportunity as they stood up in such a dangerous moment . They called for the farmers and fishers who lost their land to protest in front of the presidential palace .
But would Edward care? In the position where there was no hope . His status being lower than a city official in New Zealand, he still managed to gain almost one hundred million . It was worth it for him .
God, the GDP of Pannu Island was barely one hundred million USD a year; the tax income was less than one hundred million .
With the amount of money he has received, he could easily go to any corner of the world and become a wealthy man after the end of his term . He wanted to go to Britain . Although he had an English heritage, he has never been there before .
Just as he pretended to persuade the public to remain calm, an unlucky young man threw a soggy banana at his face .
Edward was enraged .
Especially when listening to those "natives'" outrageous laughter while they worshipped the young man like a warrior .
The next second that young man was lying in a pool of blood .
Seeing the smoke coming from the muzzle of the soldier beside the president, everyone was shocked .
No one expected a peaceful protest would turn into violence .
The flat-headed "chief" military tank was a gift given by Britain to the Pannu Island government, the only heavy military equipment on the island . During the eighties, Britain finally remembered the fallen behind little brother as they engaged in negotiations for them to join the British Commonwealth . The talk happened to occur when the British army was replacing its arms . Thus the challenger I replaced the "chief" from the sixties, so the scrapped tank was given as a gift to the Pannu Island government .
Although the talk to join the British Commonwealth ultimately failed .
The Pannu Island people didn’t think that the enraged Edward would use violence against the protestors .
Blood stained the street .
Guns and cannons drove the protestors away .
15 died, 57 were injured . As the leader of the protest Pannu Liberal Party also experienced bloody suppression and arrest .
As to the promised compensation, Edward didn’t pay a single cent .
"He is a devil . " Zhang Yapin was shaking from anger .
Jiang Chen paused for a moment as he thought with his eyes closed .
"What’s your plan?"
"We need five million USD to buy rifles, anti-tank weapons, and ammunition . " Zhang Yapin took a deep breath as the words slowly came out of his mouth .
"No problem . Do you have the channels to purchase the weapons?" Jiang Chen asked in a low voice .
"We contacted a UA citizen; his name is Robert-"
"No no no . It is better for you not to disclose these names, including mine . I don’t want to see you telling everyone that "Jiang Chen funded us, the president of Future Technology", Jiang Chen immediately interrupted Zhang Yapin’s words .
After pausing for a moment, he nodded in realization as he said apologetically .
"Sorry, I didn’t consider things properly . I hope you…"
"I will keep this a secret, when do you plan to start?" Jiang Chen asked .
Everything was within his control .
"Once the fund is in place," Zhang Yapin said in an undertone .
"Do you have a plan?" Jiang Chen asked in a light voice .
"We organized 400 civil soldiers . Once we are equipped with weapons, we will attack the military camp on Coro Island . Once we capture the armory, we will use the equipment in the armory to equip more citizens . That bastard Edward must face the anger of the Pannu people!" Zhang Yapin said gritting his teeth .
It was obvious it was the first time for him to rebel . Who would so easily disclose their plan?
Even with the investor .
After listening to his plan, Jiang Chen nodded . Then he took out his phone .
"The money has arrived, you can start . "
Zhang Yaping was shocked, he didn’t think Jiang Chen would be so decisive .
"Is there no need to sign a contract-"
"No . " Jiang Chen shook his head . "You can discuss things with me after you win . I believe you will keep your promise . For the freedom of humanity, go, young man . "
Jiang Chen patted him on the shoulder .
Zhang Yapin looked graciously at Jiang Chen as he nodded sincerely .
"I will keep my promise . Pannu’s new government will not forget the people that helped them . "
"That’s enough, go on . " Jiang Chen waved his hand .
Agreement? To a government still in its infancy, it was no different than a verbal agreement . Especially since Jiang Chen didn’t care for the benefits the new Pannu government would bring him, but rather the benefits he would gain from the civil war .
Once Zhang Yapin’s taxi was far enough, Jiang Chen stood up from the bench .
He didn’t put the phone way . Instead, he called Robert .
