Chapter 1299: The Condition for Joining the Base
“These are your temporary accommodations,” Lin Feng turned and said to them.
In the future, they would be able to apply for their own rooms or even their own apartments. The harder they worked, the better their lives could be.
“Not bad! These apartments aren’t as good as the ones in Sea City Base, but there’s plenty of space,” Luo Yuanjun looked around and said.
After the second eruption of the virus, all plants had gotten infected and mutated. So currently, no plants could be seen in any human bases. The soil couldn’t grow healthy plants anymore. As all the plants in the base had been removed, the base looked like a city of metal and cement.
“In the future, your base will have more and more people, and there will be less and less space,” Dong Lijia wore a smile again.
“It would be a great thing if our base can be filled up at some point. That would be a sign of maturity for our base,” Lin Feng guided the people into the area.
While they were looking at the buildings, the vehicles were driving into the area one after another. People didn’t get off the vehicles immediately, but waited for orders. By the time Dong Xinxin and the others took a tour in the area and came out, the road on the outside was already filled up by vehicles.
Dong Lijia asked Deng Chenfei and Luo Yuanjun to talk with the leaders of the other hunter groups about how to accommodate their people. At the moment, they could do no more than some random arrangements. In the next couple of days, they would re-accommodate some people according to their power levels and current positions in their groups.
As the others started a short discussion by the entrance of the area, Dong Xinxin and Dong Lijia followed Lin Feng and Lin Wenwen out, getting into the car and heading toward the administration building in the base.
“Those underground creatures haven’t shown any sign of approaching a human base yet, but that can happen at any time. Are you guys ready to deal with that kind of a situation?” Dong Lijia asked Lin Feng a question he had been worrying about.
“We have a way to ease the problem now, but we still have to wait until our Chief and the others accomplish their current mission to solve the problem for good. As you guys already know, superpower attacks can hardly hurt those creatures. They came out from the underground without warning. In fact, it’s hard for them to adapt to the environment on the earth’s surface. They came out in huge herds, so I guess something changed drastically in their original habitat that caused them to come out. The best way to solve the problem will be to drive them back to the underground world. We can’t possibly kill them all. The harm we can do to those creatures with our current power is too limited,” Lin Feng explained to him about the current situation.
The worst effect that those creatures had done to the earth’s surface was the harm to the environment. Apart from that, they were highly predatory like a plague of locusts. Wherever they reached, no living creature could survive.
To save mankind from them, people needed to either develop some kind of weapon that was powerful enough to hurt those creatures badly but harmless to the environment, or figure out a way to drive them back to the underground realm where they really lived.
Defeating those creatures by harming the environment was not allowed. Therefore, things like nuclear weapons could not be used. One nuclear bomb might be able to kill huge numbers of underground creatures, but the nuclear pollution was nothing that the current human beings wanted to see. The current natural environment was already miserable, and people had been trying their best to save the environment. How could they possibly choose to do something to hurt it?
Therefore, the leaders of all bases had been trying to figure out some other ways to solve the problem.
“I heard that the grand meeting was supposed to be about how to solve the underground creature crisis. How come they decided to send a team underground at last?” Dong Xinxin asked with curiosity.
“That’s reasonable. Only after learning what exactly is in the underground realm can people come up with better solutions,” Dong Lijia nodded and said.
Lin Feng nodded in agreement, “Yes. We need to know more about them to think of a better way to deal with them.”
In Lin Feng’s office, everyone took their seats. After that, Lin Feng talked to Dong Xinxin with a formal attitude, “Miss Dong, do you have any condition for joining our base that you’d like us to take into consideration?”
He knew that Dong Xinxin was the decision-maker among her team, so he addressed that question directly to her.
Lin Wenwen’s letter only stated that she would bring a batch of people back to the base, but did not mention any conditions. Lin Feng and Chen Yuting had been curious about how she convinced those people to join her base.
Dong Xinxin glanced at Lin Wenwen and turned back to Lin Feng as she said, “There’s one condition, it’s nothing special. We only want to be able to stay in this base as original residents. Within at least fifty years, we don’t want to be cast out for any reason unless we violate some rules of the base.”
Lin Feng, who was wearing a serious look, paused briefly with surprise when he heard Dong Xinxin’s words. He glanced at Lin Wenwen questioningly, wondering if he had misheard. Lin Wenwen barely made any reaction, as if she had known that already.
“Eh… Just that?” As Lin Wenwen didn’t change her expression at all, Lin Feng turned back and confirmed it with Dong Xinxin.
“Yes, that’s the only condition we have,” Dong Xinxin nodded and said.
“What kind of condition is that…” Lin Feng couldn’t help but murmur. He thought that Dong Xinxin and her people would at least ask for some important positions in the base or some special treatment. But to his surprise, she only brought up a condition that sounded barely like one.
“Oh, I was going to ask for something else, but I changed my idea on my way here,” Dong Xinxin glanced at Lin Wenwen with a smile.
If Lin Wenwen didn’t tell her that something might happen in the base in the future that might cause them to want to leave, and that she hoped they wouldn’t be enemies with her and her base even if they chose to leave, Dong Xinxin wouldn’t worry that her and her people might be cast out of the base someday.
Lin Wenwen didn’t know what to say.
Lin Feng stopped short again, and then he looked at Dong Xinxin and asked her, “What? You changed your mind on your way here? Why did you change it into this kind of… Hm, it doesn’t sound necessary at all. Who would want to cast you guys out if you didn’t violate some important rules?”
He really didn’t understand it. What made Dong Xinxin change her condition into one that sounded almost like a joke? That wasn’t making sense.
“You can’t tell for sure. After all, who knows what’ll happen in the future? We just want a guarantee,” Dong Xinxin said with a smile. The pair of dimples on her cheeks made her look very adorable.
