Chapter 1592: Public Provocation


The sarcastic remarks naturally provoked a strong backlash from the “adopted children faction.”


The two parties had been fighting for power and benefits. The a.s.sa.s.sination of Shen Yuanbao had not only intensified the conflict between them but also further reduced Shen Yuanbao’s prestige. As a result, the two factions in the Shen family were also at odds with each other in front of their old man.


“B*stard, don’t slander us!”


“Isn’t Universe Corporation where it is today because we put our heads on our belts and fought with our lives on the line?”


“Hmph. When I was fighting the beast horde and having thirty to fifty holes in my body in one day, you guys were still wetting your beds! Now, relying on the precious resources that we have worked so hard to get back, you have trained so well that you can show off your might!”


There was a lot of tension between the two groups.


As the “foster children faction” took the lead, their big brother, Shen Chenglie finally stepped forth.


At first, he narrowed his eyes and glanced at Shen Yuanbao without batting an eyelid, trying to guess what the old man was thinking.


Then, he stared at Shen Yulin and Shen Yufeng.


As for the other members of the “blood descendants faction,” they were nothing to him.


“That’s enough. All of you, shut up!” Shen Chenglie said in a deep voice.


His voice was like a raging wave that hit everyone’s eardrums hard, causing a buzzing sound to ring in their ears.


The meeting hall, which was so noisy a moment ago, suddenly became silent.


“We haven’t come to a conclusion about Chengxiu yet. It’s not appropriate to tie him to the heinous a.s.sa.s.sination case so soon, is it?”


Shen Chenglie grasped the key point and said coldly, “Even if Chengxiu is really the behind-the-scenes boss of Shenxiu machinery, it doesn’t mean that he is the mastermind of Father’s a.s.sa.s.sination. Besides, it doesn’t mean that Chengxiu is definitely the behind-the-scenes boss of Shenxiu machinery when he meets with Lu Siya in private and has a meal with her.


“After all, the nine great cultivation aristocratic families are all inextricably linked. Lu Siya is also skilled in long sleeves and is extremely good at making friends and playing games. who here can confidently say that they haven’t had any contact with Lu Siya at any of the business banquets in the past year?”

...

“That makes sense.”


Shen Yufeng said with a smile, “I also feel that it’s indeed too reckless to crucify a member of the Shen clan just based on the incriminating evidence.


“Then, call Shen Chengxiu here and confront him!


“Where is he now?


“You should know that almost all the members of the Shen family have rushed to Universe Corporation after hearing the news that their father was a.s.sa.s.sinated. Even if they can’t enter this meeting hall, they are still waiting outside respectfully.


“Where is Shen Chengxiu?”


“This…”


Shen Chenglie could not help but frown.


When he heard about Shenxiu Machinery, he had a bad feeling. He hurriedly contacted Shen Chengxiu to ask him about it.


However, the other party did not respond.


Shen Chenglie subconsciously looked to his left. A short and strong man with bulging muscles, eyebrows, and hair that looked like steel needles soared into the sky. He looked like a human-shaped war chariot.


This strong man was called “Shen Chengyi”, and he was Shen Chengxiu’s younger brother.


In the past, the two brothers, one civil and one martial, had created quite a situation in the ruins east of Dragon City. When they were at their strongest, they controlled a skysc.r.a.per that was more than 40 stories high, they also controlled a large-scale supermarket.


Later, the power of the two brothers was taken over by Universe Corporation, the predecessor of Universe Corporation.


The two brothers naturally became the G.o.dsons of Shen Yuanbao.


After that, Shen Chengxiu specialized in machinery manufacturing and was responsible for providing technical support to the group.


Shen Chengyi started his old line of work. He used the momentum of s.n.a.t.c.hing survival resources from the lawless places to help Universe Corporation s.n.a.t.c.h the crystal ore veins from the hands of monsters and other humans.


Shen Chengyi did even better than his own brother.


When he was at his peak, he was even the commando captain of Universe Corporation. He specialized in dirty, tiring, and “wet work.”


Unfortunately, in a battle with Sky Pillar Corporation, he fell into a trap and his right arm was chopped off by his opponent.


From then on, he could only use artificial limbs to replace the functions of a body of flesh and blood.


Although the artificial limbs were stronger than a body of flesh and blood, they could also output higher power when driven by crystals.


But because there was no spiritual vein inside, it could not be 100% compatible with the human body.


In the end, Shen Chengyi’s fighting strength was greatly reduced. He withdrew from the ranks of the top experts of the Shen family. Naturally, he did not have the slightest chance to control the power of the Shen family and Universe Corporation.


However, this lord was also extremely determined.


Losing an arm did not stop him from continuing his rapid progress on the road of cultivation.


After ten years of hard work, he had gradually recovered to his former state.


In addition to his hard work and meritorious service, he was naturally qualified to stand in this meeting hall to investigate the murderer of the a.s.sa.s.sination and discuss the future of the Shen family.


Sensing Shen Chenglie’s gaze, the former Commando captain of Universe Corporation, Shen Chengyi, grinned. He used an artificial limb that emitted a dark metallic glow to wipe his scarred face and strode out, he walked to the middle of the two camps and stood under Shen Yuanbao’s eyes.


He had been hiding in the crowd just now, so no one had noticed him yet.


At this moment, he was under the spotlight. The light kept rolling, refracting, and reflecting on the artificial limb’s metal sh.e.l.l. It was like a layer of faintly flowing flames, but it made everyone.., they could tell at a glance that this artificial limb was extraordinary.


When everyone narrowed their eyes and scanned the details of this artificial limb, they immediately discovered that Shen Chengyi was not trying to hide the brand logo on it at all.


“This is –”


Everyone sucked in a breath of cold air.


They simply could not believe their eyes.


“This is the product of ‘Shenxiu Machinery’!”


“This is the ‘Dragon Clan’s seven series multi-functional mechanical arm’ that we just mentioned!”


“Shen Chengyi, how dare you!”


“As a member of the Shen family and Universe Corporation, how can you wear the products of your compet.i.tors openly in a place like The Grand View of the Universe!”


The heirs of the “blood descendants faction” reacted and glared at each other.


The heirs of the adopted children camp looked at each other in bewilderment, not knowing how to refute Shen Chengyi.


Indeed, Universe Corporation had developed to this day. Whether it was horizontal or vertical, it had a layout in every industrial chain and every field.


Universe Corporation could provide almost all the products that superhumans needed.


Even if they could not provide them themselves, they still had the choice of the products designated by their strategic partners.


Under normal circ.u.mstances, the family would of course take care of their own business. This was not only related to profits, but also to the brand image of Universe Corporation and whether the Shen family was united in the eyes of outsiders, especially the artificial limbs.


Universe Corporation’s main business was crystal mining and smelting.


In this line of work, accidents and serious injuries were common occurrences.


As the saying goes, a long illness leads to a cure. Universe Corporation’s artificial limbs and strengthened exoskeletons were considered top-tier brands in the industry.


If all the Shen family members and Universe Corporation’s employees wanted to wear artificial limbs, they would not hesitate to use their own products.


At least in public, in front of Shen Yuanbao.


Who would have thought that Shen Chengyi would wear a compet.i.tor’s fist product on such an important occasion? He did not even know how to cover up the trademark on it.


Was he openly provoking everyone?
