Ace of the Dragon Division Chapter 481
Chapter 481: What I’ve Been Looking For Came Knocking (Part One)
Xu Cheng temporarily handed the casino businesses to his apprentice Lin Dong. In fact, Lin Dong didn’t have to do much. Stenson already found a professional manager, so Lin Dong was just the legal representative who would oversee everything in the real boss’s place.
Xu Cheng didn’t show his face from the beginning to the end.
After another month passed, that little drone bee was still alive. (TL Note: alright so this author just made a note in this chapter saying that he meant drone bee all along, so I’m switching over to drone bee too from the queen bee. Queen bee actually lives for 2-3 years on average, and drone bees die right after mating or stings or 6 weeks, whichever comes first.)
Which meant, it had already lived for more than 2 months.
Xu Cheng pointed at that bee and said to Stenson, “This male bee has lived for more than 2 months. Miraculous, isn’t it?”
Stenson pursed his lips and didn’t think it was a big deal. “Some drone bees can live for a couple of months depending on the species, what’s so miraculous about this one though?”
Xu Cheng smiled. “Take a closer look, see what’s different with this one.”
Stenson bent down and stared at it.
After a while, he pointed at the bee and asked in disbelief, “Boss… its stinger… is gone?”
Xu Cheng faintly smiled. “You noticed it? It indeed got its stinger removed, and it has lived for over a month after that.”
This was what Xu Cheng was most proud of!
Stenson felt as if his brain was struck by lightning, goosebumps appeared all over his body.
“Boss, you aren’t joking, right?”
“There’s a microscope by the glass jar, see for yourself,” Xu Cheng said.
Stenson immediately grabbed it and carefully looked at the bee that was flying around energetically inside the jar, and he was stunned.
“Unbelievable! Boss, how did you do it?”
“This is the reason I told you that this lab is worth hundreds of billions of dollars!” Xu Cheng faintly smiled.
This bee’s life cycle had already been modified on the genetic level. Although it was still unclear how long its lifespan had been extended by, it was no longer important. The important thing was that this genetic fusion technique was a success.
The injection of his own blood, which had the ability to resuscitate cells, would allow the subject of the injection to develop antibodies to then allow foreign animal genes, such as the turtle’s genes, to fuse into the host. With the characteristic of the turtle gene being able to extend lifespan, it could at least effectively delay the speed of which the organs and cells inside the human body age.
Previously, the treatment had been proven to be able to cure cancer and also resuscitate cells. Now, the genetic fusion experiment of extending lifespan was also a success.
With these capabilities, it would be difficult to not become rich.
But, Xu Cheng didn’t want to promote it as of yet.
Why? Because he wasn’t strong enough to have the ability to protect himself!
Once this technology gets leaked out to the world, he was sure that the real capitalists in the world would force him to surrender and hand over the technology! There was no doubt about it. This was the key to a gold mine, it definitely couldn’t be left in the hands of someone with a grass-root background. The Morgan corporation wouldn’t allow that! The Rothschild family wouldn’t! And the Capital Society definitely wouldn’t!
This was a project that involved trillions of dollars and was a medical revolution!
That was why Xu Cheng needed to find more allies to expand his influence.
He would just wait. Wait until his brothers Luo Yi and Li Wei established their own force in the Land of Mercenaries, he would return to them. Kush didn’t have the courage to unite the Land of Mercenaries and the underground world, but Xu Cheng did!
By then, it would be time for him to show his fangs!
But now, he still needed to expand his network in the M Nation, and maybe it would provide unexpected aid when he unifies the Land of Mercenaries in the future. Or maybe, if anything were to happen and a war between him and the M Nation breaks out, he could also easily set off a fire in the M Nation’s backyard.
“Boss, didn’t you say you wanted to open up a medical company?” Stenson asked Xu Cheng curiously.
Xu Cheng shook his head. “I changed my mind, I’m not opening it.”
Stenson was curious. “Why? You cured Senator Jerry, you can take this opportunity and open up a hospital. I believe the business will really take off!”
“Your boss wants to be low-key,” Xu Cheng said. Then, he asked, “Did you find the expert hackers that I asked for? I don’t want any who are employed by the government, I want those that are purely into computers and the art of hacking.”

Stenson nodded. “Found them, but I haven’t verified how skilled they are yet myself. Boss, what do you want those people for? In fact, you can just spend some money and find a bunch at Silicon Valley; why do you want to look for those that think they are above the common system and like to work by themselves? You don’t know? These guys all look like ordinary people, but on the world online, they deem themselves as gods restricted by no laws or moral values! These types of rangers can’t even be brought by the government, do you think you can tame them?”
Xu Cheng turned around and looked at him. “Do you know why these guys don’t want to work for other people, even if it’s the government? Because they want freedom! How do you feel the president is living right now? He can’t even browse online or go anywhere freely, and he must follow strict protocols. The government would only restrict the hands of these rangers. If you were them, you crave freedom and yet your hands are tied, would you still be happy to work for others even if they pay you a fortune? Do you know why I want to find these kinds of lone wolves? Because they are strong enough to fight wars online by themselves and that’s why they dislike working as a part of an organization for an employer.”
Stenson appeared to be in a daze as he tried to understand the explanation, and he slowly said, “I couldn’t find many. The good ones were already collected by the government. Some people in the hacker community also laughed at me, saying that a top-tier hacker wouldn’t allow their identity to be exposed. If the hacker’s exposed in real life, then that means this hacker is no longer top-notch!”
Xu Cheng nodded. “Makes sense. So, is this the reason you couldn’t find anyone capable?”
Stenson bitterly smiled. “It’s really difficult to find. The world of hackers is a lot more complicated than the outside world. If we want to find them, we might have to understand programming and enter the same world as them. But Boss, can I ask one thing, what do you need them for?”
Xu Cheng glared at him.
Stenson’s hair rose immediately and he didn’t dare to ask more.
At this time, his phone rang.
It was an unfamiliar number.
He picked up.
“Is it Mr. Stenson?”
“I am, who is this?”
“I want to cure cancer, what’s the price?” a hoarse voice said over the phone, followed by coughing.
“What?” Stenson frowned. “I don’t know what you are talking about.”
“Don’t play pretend anymore. That anonymous email you sent to Senator Jerry, I saw it. Although it was deleted now, I could still find it in the mail company’s HQ’s database. I know it was you that sent him the invitation, and he’s living really well right now. I want a healthy body, can you do it? You can name the price, and I will get the money.”
“This isn’t a question of money. I can’t explain it to you too.” Stenson was anxious. He didn’t know how his boss really cured Senator Jerry so he could only put the phone on mute and ask Xu Cheng, “Boss, someone wants you to cure him, are we taking this case or not?”
“No, this matter cannot be leaked to the public!” Xu Cheng said impatiently.
Stenson immediately hung up.
At this time, Xu Cheng’s phone rang.
After Xu Cheng picked it up, he just heard a hoarse voice speaking, “Mr. Xu, you should be the boss that was saved on Mr. Stenson’s contact list, right? I apologize for hacking into the telecommunication company’s database to find the user information on his mobile end. I want to cure my body, can you please help?”
Xu Cheng originally wanted to hang up, but he realized what this guy just said and a smile immediately appeared on his face.
Oh boy, within just a minute of Stenson hanging up, that guy already went into the telecommunication company’s database and found the contacts Stenson saved on the cloud drive and found his number.
This skill was not bad!
What he had been looking for actually came knocking! He was just thinking about how difficult it would be to find a top-notch hacker, yet one came to find him already.
