Chapter 144: The Unlucky Boss
Before Yao Si could react, the large crowd of beasts had already
“How could someone enter after we shut the security system?!” A
tiger-headed man who seemed to be the leader of the pack came over to
sweep a glance at them. “Only the top level management of the Lu
Enterprise would be able to command such high authority! Hurry, bring the
supervisor of District 9 to identify the person.”
A leopard-headed man left instantly. In less than half a minute, he
dragged over a middle-aged man of about forty years . The man was clothed
entirely in blue working attire, his ash-colored hair an utter mess. He
seemed to be in great fear as he trembled uncontrollably.
Leopard-head dragged him to the front and shoved him onto the ground. He
raised his head meekly, and his eyes widened when he caught sight of Lu
Chen. “Manager Lu, you are here?”
“Supervisor Yuan!” They were obviously acquainted. “This… What
“So you are the manager of the Ore Planet.” Before another word could
be uttered, tiger-head’s eyes lit up. He took a few steps forward to
sweep Lu Chen up and down before he started to grin widely, even exposing
his sharp teeth. “You must be a Lu Family member since your first name
is Lu. I never expected to catch such a big fish! Hahaha!”
“Wh-who are you? What exactly do you want?” It was Lu Chen’s first
encounter of such a tricky situation, and he started to panic. “Don’t
do anything rash; we can talk things out!”
“Heh, I’m sure a manager like you is not be able to recognize measly
workers like us.” Tiger-head completely disregarded the weakling like
Lu Chen and smirked. “But it’s fine, soon, we beasts will get what we
“Manager Lu, all the districts from 1 to 9 have been taken over by
them,” Supervisor Yuan explained while lying limply on the ground. ”
The employees of the Ore Planet are all locked up. They wanted to entice
“Shut up!” Tiger-head struck him, cutting him off mid-sentence.
“This is all because of your Lu Enterprise! Our race has been working
diligently for so many years, but why do all the profits go to your
people?! Isn’t this considered slavery? We were forced into this
“That’s not true!” Lu Chen rebutted anxiously. “We have a written
agreement with all the beasts that we employ, and it’s a legal
employer-employee relationship. If you aren’t willing, you can quit at
any time. How is that slavery?”
“Bullsh*t, it’s all just talk. The pathetic amount of salary you pay
us is nothing compared to the profits the Ore Planet brings.”
Tiger-head grabbed Lu Chen’s collar. “The ores are all harvested by
my race, so they belong to us. You guys didn’t do anything but robbed
the fruits of our labour. You’re just a bunch of vampires trying to
leech of us bests.”
“…” The real vampires, Yao Si and Mu Xuan.
It’s alright to sprout rubbish, but no discrimination, please!
What does this have to do with us?
“You guys are just wearing a fake philanthropic mask to cheat my race
into slaving away for you. Let me tell you, we bests have pride. From
this moment on, we will get what we deserve and won’t be exploited by
your company anymore. We will not be slaves!” tiger-head declared
loudly, ending with his slogan.
His words were followed by loud chants by the other bests.
“Beasts shall never be slaves!”
Enough! You could even drag another race into this… Isn’t that line
copied from someone else?! I could sue you for copyright issues!
At least everything made sense now for Yao Si. The event was ignited due
to the employee displeasure with their wages… so they decided to go on
strike. But how did it escalate to their whole race and why were weapons
being utilized in the process? She couldn’t seem to understand. Was
this the local Galactic custom?
“Erm…” Yao Si couldn’t help raising her hand to interrupt.
“What exactly is your aim after such a lengthy discussion? Can you come
to a conclusion already?”
Tiger-head stilled as though suddenly remembering his motives. He turned
to signal the crowd with his gaze before pointing a gun toward Lu Chen.
“You are a member of the Lu Family, so you must have the contacts of
the owner of the Ore Planet. Call him immediately! As long as you
transfer all the rights of the planet over to us beasts, we will assure
“You want the Ore Planet? That’s impossible!” Lu Chen smirked,
turning his head resolutely. “This planet is just managed by Lu
Enterprise, but we do not have any shares in it. Besides, what you’re
doing is illegal! Anyways, I don’t have the contacts of my boss, but
even if I did, I wouldn’t give them to you!”
“Good… good job there!” Tiger-head narrowed his eyes at him. “If
you don’t cooperate, I’ll kill everyone on this planet besides my
kind. I’ll see how Lu Enterprise will handle that.”
“Let’s start with you.” He suddenly grabbed a large gun and aimed
it at the ground with his hand on the trigger.
“Supervisor Yuan!” Lu Chen’s eyes went wide in disbelief.
Hey, hey, hey, this is going too far ! Yao Si frowned. Even though the
group’s problems were a little eccentric, they could still be
considered as part of internal conflict and not something in which she
should interfere. But dragging innocent bystanders into this and
threatening their lives was considered kidnapping and blackmail!
“I have activated the signal. Hurry and connect to the communicator!”
the tiger-headed man threatened once more. “Or I will kill him.”
“Alright, alright, I-I’ll connect…” Lu Chen paled, completely
forgetting the two skilled bloodlings behind him. He gingerly tapped open
the communicator and scrolled toward an account which was marked with
high importance. “Lu Family prohibits anyone from disrupting the boss.
Even though I have their number, I have never dialed it, so I can’t be
sure if anyone will pick up.”
That mysterious? Yao Si started to feel intrigued. Who could this unlucky
boss who was about to be robbed be?
Lu Chen clicked onto the account, and there was a light beep!
The next moment… Yao Si’s optical computer beeped.
[Di! You have a new message request from Ore Planet on T Galactic,
“…” Yao Si.
“…” Mu Xuan.
“…” Lu Chen.
“…” Crowd of beasts.
This can’t be happening… she is that unlucky boss!
In an instant, everyone’s attention shifted to her. Yao Si grimaced.
How could that be? She opened her optical computer to take a closer look,
but it was really a message from Lu Chen.
She lifted her head toward him. Was he perhaps get himself out of the
“B-boss?!” Lu Chen’s eyes lit up like light bulbs.
Hmm… the shock seems genuine. Alright, it was probably not an act after
F*ck! When did I acquire the Ore Planet unknowingly?
Wait a minute! She suddenly remembered an incident from the past.
“Erm… Lu Chen, do you happen to know Lu Ren?”
“Master Lu?” He stilled. “He’s the current head of the Lu Family,
the CEO of the Lu Enterprise.”
