Chapter 60: Moral Integrity
What could be better in that world than casually acting and earning millions of points
Acting casually and earning tens of millions of points
When the elite team arrived on the scene that day, they found the following.
The man in greens figure was disheveled, and his clothes were sloppy.
The majority of his body was wrapped in a thin but extremely strong silver thread.
Mo Ran and Luo Shan were in charge of the silver thread.
They stood at one end of the silver thread and pulled the two ends together.
They shifted their positions in response to the man in greens attack.
When the man in green attacked one side, the other side immediately pulled the silver thread on their side and pressed the mechanism in their hands.
The silver thread wrapped around the man in greens body would instantly tighten while flashing with electric arcs.
As the pain caused his entire body to tremble, he could not continue attacking.
The two of them worked well together and relied on it to keep the man in green in check until the Tiansheng Groups elite team arrived.
When Luo Shan saw the three mysterious men, he let out a sigh of relief.
However, the man in green struggled even more fiercely.
He endured the intense pain and exerted tremendous strength, causing Mo Ran and Luo Shan to repeatedly lose their balance and fall until their faces were covered in blood.
The two of them gritted their teeth.
They somersaulted and stood up after falling.
The silver threads in their hands did not budge.
When the three mysterious men saw that, they exclaimed, “Hold on! Were coming!” Then, they charged into the battle circle.
They were about to attack the man in green.
However, they heard the man in green groan heavily for an unknown reason.
A powerful shock wave emitted from his body, flipping Mo Ran Luo Shan and the three mysterious men over simultaneously.
Then, everyone stood up to double-check.
The silver-threaded figure had already vanished, leaving only a heap of silver threads on the ground and half an arm in a pool of blood.
The three mysterious men approached and examined the severed arm.
They were moved to tears by the man in greens decisiveness.
In order to escape, he severed an arm.
That kind of bravery was extremely rare.
Perhaps even the film would not dare to shoot in that manner!
Regardless, the two First Consortium colleagues who came to support them had made a significant contribution.
A severed arm meant the highest reward.
The three mysterious people helped Luo Shan up; he was vomiting blood non-stop.
Mo Rans face was ashen.
They said to the two guiltily, “Sorry, were late.”
Mo Ran was silent.
Luo Shan appeared severely injured, so weak that he could not speak.
He could only shake his head grudgingly.
The three of them felt even more guilty after looking at the two of them.
One of the mysterious men attempted to lighten the mood.
“Congratulations, you have a great harvest this time!” he said, picking up the man in greens severed arm.
Mo Ran raised his head and looked at the severed arm.
He remained silent.
Luo Shan seemed to want to laugh, but it also seemed to affect the injuries on his body.
His brow furrowed, and he appeared tired.
He returned to the Tiansheng Group directors office.
Qin Dongbei furrowed his brows as he examined the sealed severed arm.
His gaze passed Mo Ran, Luo Shan, and the mysterious men several times.
He had the uneasy feeling that something was wrong.
‘Every time, the man in green managed to flee.
Could these people be conspiring against me
Qin Dongbei thought hard.
Just as he was about to ask a question…
Luo Shan said, “Director Qin, my lack of strength has dragged everyone down.
This credit belongs to Mo Ran and these three men.
I am ashamed of myself.
I shouldnt have come and created more trouble for everyone.
I didnt accomplish anything.
This is too embarrassing.”
Qin Dongbeis train of thought, which seemed to be about to be cleared up, was stirred again by Luo Shans words.
He looked at Luo Shan with puzzlement.
Finally, before he could grasp the significance of those words…
The three mysterious men suddenly said, “Boss, were the guilty.”
The three looked left and right, their faces filled with bitterness and helplessness.
The mysterious men in the middle said, “The two of them had already apprehended the man in green at that point.
They even managed to tire him out.”
“Thats right.” The mysterious man on the left smiled bitterly and said, “If they could continue holding on, theyd be able to keep the man in green captured.”
The mysterious man on the right mocked himself.
“Its a pity that we were too impatient.
The moment we arrived, the man in green was so scared that he jumped over the wall.
He had to cut off one of his arms, but he still chose to escape from the silver thread.”
The mysterious man in the middle sighed.
“We were the ones who had caused trouble today.”
Mo Ran appeared to be upset and wanted to explain himself.
Luo Shan quickly waved his hands and shouted, “Stop arguing! If you want to blame someone for that, you can only blame me! Its all my fault that Im too weak and cant keep up with the pace.
If it werent for the three of you arriving on time, I might have already died at the hands of that man in green! So dont blame yourself!”
The three mysterious people were extremely touched when they saw Luo Shan trying his best to help them get out of that mess.
They wanted to say more, but they felt that they were not qualified to speak up for others since they had let their target go time and time again.
They could only purse their lips and sigh.
They had never felt so sullen and powerless since they went to the 600th level.
Qin Dongbei watched as the few of them fought over each other.
Everyone was trying their best to take responsibility for themselves, and the doubt that rose in his heart gradually disappeared.
He was just about to open his mouth to comfort them.
However, he heard Luo Shan say, “Director Qin, Ive decided.”
As he spoke, he turned his head and exchanged a glance with Mo Ran.
Mo Ran was expressionless and even a little confused.
Luo Shan seemed to have received a message.
He nodded heavily and said, “Im quitting.
From now on, I will not be involved in capturing the man in green!”
Qin Dongbei smiled.
He shook his head and waved his hand, attempting to persuade Luo Shan not to place too much blame on himself.
The targets escape was an unintended consequence.
However, Luo Shan said, “Director Qin, to express my regret and make amends for my error, I am pleased to present the critical information that we have painstakingly gathered.
The man in greens weakness!”
That was the first time Qin Dongbei showed a shocked expression.
He looked at Luo Shan in surprise as the younger man took out a tightly wrapped document.
Luo Shan said, “I am sure everyone knows we have already succeeded twice based on that information.
I believe that the Tiansheng Group will do better than us once they know about the man in greens weakness.
“Director Qin, please accept this as a way to atone for my error.” Luo Shan handed the document sincerely, like a child who had made a mistake.
Qin Dongbei looked at Luo Shan, who had clearly contributed but made himself appear worthless.
Then he turned to look at Mo Ran, who had clearly been injured, and his face had turned green, but he said nothing and showed no signs of fighting for the credit.
Finally, he looked at his three trusted aides, whose expressions indicated they were about to self-destruct.
He took a deep breath, raised his hands, and took the document solemnly.
He said, “You are too kind, Team Leader Luo.
This is significant—”
Luo Shan cupped his hands and interrupted him.
“Director Qin, please forgive me!”
Qin Dongbei shook his head and smiled bitterly when he saw how insistent he was.
He said, “Okay, I accept your apology.”
“Thank you for your forgiveness, Director Qin.
Goodbye!” After Luo Shan said that, he turned around and left.
He did not mention anything about the bounty.
Qin Dongbei looked at him in a daze as he staggered.
From time to time, he would cover his mouth and almost spit out some blood.
Something surged in his heart.
How noble of him!
That man was too noble, as one would expect from a talent he had set his sights on!
He opened the document bag and took out the information to read it carefully.
A look of enlightenment appeared on his face.
Then, he gave it to the three mysterious men.
After the three of them finished reading, they also came to a sudden realization.
They looked at each other and said simultaneously, “So the weakness was the mechanism technique!”
Mo Ran, who was beside them, saw Luo Shan leave without saying a word.
He was very anxious.
He was there to earn money.
He pretended to act against his heart just for the high reward.
How could Luo Shan, who was in control of the situation, suddenly leave
What should he do
He did not know how to speak!
He did not know how to operate in such a complicated situation!
Mo Ran stood there and thought for a long time, expressionlessly.
In the end, he still did not know what to do.
Therefore, he imitated Luo Shan and cupped his fists at Qin Dongbei.
After saying that, he turned around and left.
He was Mo Ran.
When he had decided on something, he would do it immediately and without hesitation.
If he had decided to leave, he would leave quickly.
He exited even more quietly than Luo Shan.
He had already rushed out the door, giving Qin Dongbei no time to react.
Qin Dongbei could not decide whether to laugh or cry.
He looked at the two noble and virtuous talents who had said they were there to earn money, but they did not mention a single word about the bounty before the settlement.
Each of them left faster than the other.
He took two steps forward.
He shouted, “Team Leader Mo, the two of you have suffered.
Go back and rest well.
The 10 million points will be transferred to your account.
Also, help me pass a message to Team Leader Luo.
Tell him that the Tiansheng Group will always keep our word.
We will pay the reward for capturing the man in green.
We will transfer the one million points to his account.”
Mo Rans normally quick steps slowed slightly.
He stood up straight, his chest barely covered, and coughed twice.
His face and ears turned red as he walked around the corner.
The three mysterious people sighed and said, “Boss, Team Leader Luo and Team Leader Mo are too outstanding.
They are capable, efficient, and brave.
You excel in judging talents!”
Qin Dongbei returned to his seat behind his desk, satisfied, and examined the sealed arm.
“The man in greens strength has decreased again after this battle,” he told the three men.
“The day of his capture draws nearer.
You three have also made significant contributions.
Each of you will receive a million points.
“Thank you, Boss!”
