When Ryan arrived at the Military Intelligence 3, Thorn asked him to go to the conference room. There were already a lot of senior executives who were discussing seriously.
“Hi, Ryan. Welcome.” When Thorn saw Ryan, he smiled and waved at Ryan, signaling Ryan to come over and sit down.
Ryan smiled back. He glanced around briefly and found that in the conference room, there were some strange faces other than the top management of the Military Intelligence 3, such as Thorn and Marlin.
Just now on the phone, Thorn roughly mentioned to him about the Reiki Fruit, which immediately aroused his interest. After settling Phoebe, he rushed over immediately to see what was going on.
After Ryan’s arrival, everyone in the conference room looked at him. Those newcomers were especially interested in him, and they cannot hide their surprise. It seemed that they did not expect Ryan to be so young.
Ryan walked to the seat next to Thorn and sat down. Thorn pointed to a middle-aged man on the main seat and introduced, “Ryan, this is Pence, the director of Military Intelligence 3.”
Ryan was not surprised by that man’s identity. In fact, when he came in, he had already guessed his identity. Speaking of which, it was the first time he had seen the director of the Military Intelligence 3.
With just one glance, Ryan knew that his strength was extraordinary. He was in the fourth stage of the Innate Realm, stronger than Marlin.
Moreover, unlike Marlin and Thorn who were quite rough, that man was elegant, looking like a knowledgeable university professor.
Pence stood up to shake Ryan’s hand and said with a smile, “So you are the famous professor Ryan. I’ve heard a lot about you.”
Ryan shook hands with him and said with a smile, “Glad to meet you, Director Pence.” The two shook hands amiably. Ryan could feel that Pence admired him very much.
“Ryan reached such a stage at a young age. It’s our fortune to invite you to join the Military Intelligence 3!” Pence kept showing his admiration for Ryan.
Ryan smiled and said, “Director Pence is flattering me. I was just lucky to have reached the fourth stage by chance.”
Pence then praised Ryan and was very enthusiastic about Ryan. Other new faces greeted Ryan and were especially polite to him.
Obviously, they all knew that Ryan was a man of the fourth stage of the Innate Realm, whe killed the Fool, Satan and the Red- haired Witch in one move.
In the Military Intelligence 3, it was a place where strength was respected. Ryan’s strength was extraordinary, and he would naturally be respected.
What caught Ryan’s attention was a tall man opposite him. He was Silas, the instructor of the Dragon Blood Team. His skin was redder than ordinary people’s, especially the part above his neck that looked congestive.
In Ryan’s perception, Silas was stronger than Martin. He was almost the strongest in the third stage of the Innate Realm.
All the core figures of the Military Intelligence 3 were in this conference room. The strongest among them was Pence, then Silas, Marlin, finally Thorn and Joshua.
Of course, Ryan did not think of himself. In fact, he was not weaker than Pence.
After greetings, they began to talk about the Reiki Fruit. Pence said in a low voice first, “It’s less than half a month before the Colorful Fruit of Essence is mature. This time, we are asigned to get it! The Colorful Fruit of Essence is a rare treasure on Earth and has unimaginable research value! If we can snatch it over and hand it to the national laboratory, once we discover something important and copy it, then our country’s strength will be greatly improved.”
Joshua, the deputy director frowned slightly and said, “There are too many people targeting the Colorful Fruit of Essence this time. It’s not easy for us to complete this task. Besides, there will definitely be a bloody competition.”
Thorn also said with a sad face, “Yes, even many foreign forces are targeting the Colorful Fruit of Essence. They started to enter H Country very early and made preparation. If only the Military Intelligence 3 is asigned to do that, I’m afraid we would fail.”
Several other senior executives also expressed their concerns. The Colorful Fruit of Essence was so precious that it was called a peerless treasure. With the Military Intelligence 3’s current strength, it was really difficult to win over the friut.
Pence smiled and said, “Don’t worry about that. The main responsibility for picking the Colorful Fruit of Essence would be taken by Military Intelligence 1 and Military Intelligence 2. What we should do is to assist them.”
When the others heard this, they were immediately surprised and said, “With the help of Military Intelligence 1 and the Military Intelligence 2, the odds of winning will be much higher.”
“Yes.” Pence nodded. He smiled, but there was bitterness on his face. The burden on his shoulders was lighter, but this also meant that the Military Intelligence 3 was not strong enough.
Others also realized this and showed bitterness and helplessness.
Marlin said, “It seems that the task of getting the Colorful Fruit of Essence is very important. If anyone can seize the Colorful Fruit of Essence, it will be a great achievement.”
Pence added, “Yes, the Colorful Fruit of Essence is significant. It only bears fruit once in 112 years. If we miss this time, we will have to wait for another 112 years. By then, we will have turned into a cup of soil.” Ryan listened to them and remained silent. Pence noticed him and asked with a smile, “Ryan, what do you think?”
Everyone fixed their eyes on Ryan, and soon they realized that Ryan was the top master in the fourth stage of the Innate Realm. If Ryan joined them, they would have a chance to win.
Besides, once they seized the Colorful Fruit of Essence and dedicated it to the country, they would make a great contribution! By then, the entire Military Intelligence 3 would benefit from that.
Ryan smiled bitterly and said, “I don’t have any thoughts. In fact, I don’t even know what the Colorful Fruit of Essence is.”
Pence looked at Thorn. Thorn suddenly patted his head and said, “Oh, it’s my fault. I didn’t have time to introduce the Colorful Fruit of Essence to Ryan. The Colorful Fruit of Essence is…”
Next, Thorn told Ryan about the Colorful Fruit of Essence in detail, and there was no difference from what Ryan had learned.
After hearing his introduction, Ryan’s eyes flashed and he said in surprise, “Is there such a magical fruit in this world? Can people really increase life elements after eating it?”
Pence nodded solemnly and said heavily, “That’s right. Colorful Fruit of Essence is known as the Reiki Fruit. It’s cultivated by heaven and earth spiritual Qi, so it’s priceless. Even an ordinary person, after swallowing it, can immediately reach the Innate Realm and the longevity would increase for decades. Alll in all, it’s almost the same as the immortal pill!”
Ryan showed a shocked look and acted perfectly. No one could tell that he knew the Colorful Fruit of Essence well in advance, and he had already made up his mind to get the Colorful Fruit of Essence.
Then, after chatting for a while, Pence said with a smile, “You don’t have to feel stressed. This time, our mission is to assist the Military Intelligence 1 and Military Intelligence 2. According to their strength, it shouldn’t be difficult to complete the mission.”
At this moment, Silas, who had been silent for a long time, said, “It’s not that simple. I got the news that the mysterious organization has also targeted the Colorful Fruit of Essence and sent out a lot of experts of Innate Realm to snatch it.”
Hearing his words, the atmosphere suddenly became stiff and everyone’s expression became serious.
