Apocalyptic Rebirth: Earth’s Vast Changes - Chapter 14
Chapter 014: Conception of Preliminary Defense 
Qin Luo asked Zhou Deren to prepare too many things, so it wouldn’t be reasonable to not rent a warehouse as a front for people. However, if you rent a warehouse nearby in the city, not only you wouldn’t be able to find such a large one, it would also be too conspicuous.
So, the next morning after breakfast, Qin Luo called a taxi and planned to go alone to the neighboring Dong Liang province to have a look. He remembered that the province had planned to build a large industrial park, which was divided into three phases, first phase, second phase, and the last phase.
According to his memory, when the second phase of the project was nearing its completion, there seemed to be some problems with the funding so it was halted. It was only after more than half a year had passed that the project was continued once again. Unfortunately, when the construction had just been completed, it was caught in the midst of an apocalypse outbreak before it could attract investments.
In the early phase of the apocalypse, before Qin Luo followed the rescue troops to move out of the city, he had been hiding in the big warehouse there for a long time, so he was very impressed with it.
From the rough estimate of the time, right now it should be around the time when the second phase of the construction was nearing its completion. And it seemed, some parts of the warehouse could be used after it had been built.
And while he didn’t know if he could find the person in charge or whether it would be easy to rent the warehouse or not, still, Qin Luo wanted to try his luck this time.
As soon as he arrived at the construction site, he saw a row of formed warehouses in the distance. They even had had huge iron gates installed. However, it was only after he had trekked through the construction site a few times that he found the temporary person-in-charge —— an old man who looked to be sixty or seventy years old.
Despite the fact that the old man was only responsible for watching over things, he still had a lot of power. So, Qin Luo explained the purpose of his visit there and the old man was also frank and straightforward. Anyway, the warehouse itself was empty for the time being, at least it’d earn some extra money now that someone wanted to rent it.
After he finished sizing him up, the old man withdrew his gaze from Qin Luo’s student attire and canvas shoes. He smacked his lips repeatedly, then gritted his teeth before telling me that the rent was twenty yuan a day. Furthermore, he also told me that he wouldn’t be responsible for the preparation for the lock on the warehouse’s door. So, in case there was something missing, the old man wouldn’t be misunderstood.
This was the bottom line of the old man’s consideration that he made after thinking it over and over again. If it wasn’t for the fact that Qin Luo, from top to bottom, was dressed like a ‘poor’ person, or seemed to look like a student, then it’d be a different case. For a large warehouse of several hundred square meters, it was possible to rent it out as much as two hundred yuan a day. But, at present, there were no tenants and the old man was very sincere even when he was trying to earn some money to supplement his family’s expense, so he only collected a small sum of twenty yuan a day.
Qin Luo didn’t expect that it would be so cheap, so he immediately booked two warehouses and paid half a month’s rent first. And it was agreed that if necessary, he might continue to rent it beyond the one month period.
The old man held six red notes in his hands, and a smile bloomed on his face, making his wrinkles look more prominent. He repeatedly assured Qin Luo that the place was empty and that it would only need a 500-watt light bulb to possibly illuminate an area of 1000 meters. The warehouse was also quite secured with walls surrounding it. The only way through for people and cars was from the gate that he guarded over.
As long as it’s locked, nothing could be lost. So, when going back and forth to pick up the goods in and out of the inventory, one would need to greet the old man. Furthermore, there were five to six nails buried on the dirt road in the front entrance driveway. Those who weren’t aware of it, even if they were to remove the chains and drive their cars in secretly, would end up with their car tires burst.
Qin Luo didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry, but in his heart, he was clear that this little old man was quite thoughtful. Anyway, he’s not mindless. He’s not sure he could watch over this large place by himself.
With that done, Qin Luo called Zhou Deren and informed him of the specific address of the warehouse. He told him that all the collected goods he asked for could be delivered to the warehouse, and the equity shares would be settled accordingly to what he delivered.
Zhou Deren wrote down the address and snorted lightly, “Young Master of the Qin family, I’m determined to get the equity shares in your hand. So, let me remind you once again, it’s best not to play games with me. If you circumvent some other people to prepare the goods for you at that time, don’t blame me for being black-hearted and ruthless.”
Qin Luo only coldly said, “Once the goods are ready, then deliver it to me. If you’re not ready, then don’t talk nonsense to me. You better think of the consequences first should you dare to fool me with some garbage goods.” Qin Luo then hung up his cell phone, too lazy to talk nonsense to that guy surnamed Zhou.
