Volume 10 – Chapter 1: Brothers in Hardship
Haruno Suzuki had just passed his 22nd birthday and had successfully graduated from a well-known university abroad.
In the Suzuki family that was warrior-like, the studious Haruno Suzuki seemed so out of place. However, Haruno Suzuki wasn’t mistreated in the Suzuki family. Instead, his father, Yuichi Suzuki, thought highly of him.
The world had changed. The elderly Yuichi Suzuki knew that his enterprise could no longer be protected by relying solely on fists. He understood that the Suzuki family’s future required a person with knowledge and a long-term perspective.
As the company’s CEO, Haruno Suzuki started to raise the Suzuki family’s enterprises’ profit within a few months.
What an excellent Suzuki family’s son. It was hard to find faults in him. Therefore, even rumors claimed that Yuichi Suzuki planned to let Haruno Suzuki into the Suzuki Group.
The Suzuki Group was the foundation of the Suzuki Consortium. In some industries, the behemoth-like Suzuki Consortium was a source of economic support for the primary Suzuki Group.
There was no such particular country that could breed notable social organizations such as the Suzuki Group.
Some people believe that if Haruno Suzuki could take the helm, the Suzuki Group would grow further. After all, Haruno’s achievements were apparent to all. But when someone was happy, they were parties in worries like Haruno Suzuki’s brother, Char Suzuki, and his aides.
With no accidents, it should be the eldest son, Char Suzuki, inheriting the Suzuki Club.
Speaking of Char Suzuki, he was the Suzuki Group’s pride too. Some people even called him the strongest man in the Suzuki Club. He was a person who intimidated the entire Kanto region. He had always been famous for being cruel.
God was fair. It gave Char Suzuki a powerful body and an overlord aptitude, but it did not boast his wisdom stats.
Therefore, Suzuki’s strongest man also had another nickname – the Suzuki Club’s Musclebrain.
The following was Char Suzuki’s accomplishment.
In a deal that was almost negotiated, Char Suzuki being the one in charge had overslept. As a result, he was late and lost the deal.
In an important meeting to ally with friendly forces, Char Suzuki went to the wrong place and broke into someone else’s negotiation venue. He even mistook the people in the avenue. This eventually led to an inexplicable fight with a third-party force. Not only did the alliance fail, but it established a new enemy for the Suzuki Association.
Worse still, Char Suzuki had seduced the official’s wife by mistaking her as the lady entertainer, which later led to the official’s wife eloping for love.
Business-wise, Char Suzuki sold off a batch of important goods at a low price.
Then, he bought a large amount of meat and planned to store the goods, but it turned out that the goods were expired products.
Worse still, in gang fights, he hurt the congressman’s son out of mistake.
Char Suzuki didn’t graduate from high school for ten consecutive years too.
Haruno Suzuki just left the company before returning to the Suzuki family. Several servants in the family hurriedly came out to greet him. Haruno Suzuki had a handsome appearance, which was more because he inherited his mother’s genes, who was once a very famous movie star.
“Young Master Haruno, do you want to take a shower or eat first?”
“Where’s father?” Haruno Suzuki smiled slightly and treated the servants with the same gentleness.
“Master and Young Master Char are attending a banquet, so they won’t come back for dinner tonight.” The servant replied respectfully.
“Oh, is it? Whose banquet?” Haruno nodded casually and asked seemingly casually.
“It seems to be Mr. Sato’s family dinner.”
Among the servants, Mr. Sato was a respected old man in the Kanto area who had a great influence on many things.
Haruno Suzuki suddenly said, “I want to take a bath first. When I’m hungry, I’ll ask you to serve the food.”
The servant watched Haruno Suzuki walking up the stairs. They whispered casually, “Oh…Young Master Haruno is great. It would be great if the master took him there.”
“There is no way to go about it. After all, Young Master Char is the legitimate bloodline, but Young Master Haruno is…”
After returning to the room, Haruno Suzuki didn’t head to the bath but sat down on the chair in front of the French window tiredly. He pulled off the necktie with slight irritability, poured a glass of water, and drank it all in one gulp. Only then did he feel the suppressed anger in his chest fade slightly.
“With Sato’s position, if the elder brother can get his support, it will be much smoother for him to inherit the Suzuki Club. I heard that Sato’s women look good. If they can get married, he can take advantage of Sato’s power and connections. It will be an easy success later on.”
Haruno Suzuki sneered and said quietly, “Such a good opportunity, of course, is to leave it to the eldest son. As for me, I’m still working overtime and don’t know anything about it. My father is quite partial…”
Haruno Suzuki waved his hand and pushed the coffee table next to it to the ground to vent out the anger in his heart. But soon, he took a deep breath to calm himself down.
He wouldn’t show his hatred and dissatisfaction in front of anyone.
At this moment, Haruno Suzuki seemed to hear a sound. A sound seemed to appear in his ears, but there was no source of such a sound in the room.
It appeared near but distant at the next moment. It sounded like something terrifying. Haruno Suzuki’s heart was beating violently at this time. He seemed to have heard a strange sound summoning him.
At this moment, Haruno Suzuki was pressing to find the source of the voice. Finally, he opened the room door and slowly moved towards the depths of the Suzuki family mansion with a dull expression.
On the way, Haruno Suzuki did not encounter the servants of the Suzuki family because the servants were forbidden to enter some places for the deepest part of the mansion.
For example, the place where Suzuki held meetings, Yuichi Suzuki’s study, and the place where the Suzuki family collected the valuables.
Haruno Suzuki stood expressionlessly in front of the treasure room of the Suzuki family. Only Yuichi Suzuki had the key to open the door, which was always kept closely with Yuichi Suzuki.
But at this time, the treasure room’s door opened mysteriously. Haruno Suzuki slowly opened the treasure room’s door and walked into it.
“Who…who is calling me…?”
Haruno Suzuki’s eyes gradually dimmed, and his voice became weaker. He found that his thinking suddenly became slow at this time. In fact, since he heard this strange sound, his thinking process was sluggish.
Currently, he seemed to have lost his cognition. He couldn’t think about anything, even what he saw should be something that frightened him: a strange and hideous purple snake!
The purple snake coiled up on the table in the treasure room, standing upright and spitting out black snake tongue towards Suzuki Haruno.
Hiss… Hiss… Hiss…
The little purple snake suddenly bounced out of the table! At this time, Haruno Suzuki opened his mouth. The little purple snake didn’t face any obstruction. Instead, it entered directly into Haruno Suzuki’s body through the mouth!
In an instant, Haruno Suzuki’s face revealed intense pain and torment. But strangely, all the symptoms stopped. His eyes began to turn white at this moment, and the pain caused his entire face to be distorted entirely at this moment!
In the end, Haruno Suzuki’s body fell to the ground, and there was no movement.
Soon after, Haruno Suzuki stood up from the ground again. His expression had become natural, but a purple light flashes in his eyeballs before disappearing quickly.
Haruno Suzuki began to turn his wrist at this time, moving the rest of the body as if to get used to this body.
“It’s quite fragile. I didn’t expect after not returning to the main world for such a long time, and the human body has become even weaker.”‘ Haruno Suzuki muttered to himself.
At the same time, another voice sounded coldly in the treasure room, “Orochi, let’s figure out on the vessel later. We need to find out where we are! I feel like we seem to be far away from Divine Land!”
‘Haruno Suzuki’ smiled at this moment and said, “Brother Alioth, don’t worry. My vessel’s identity seems to be good. Besides, didn’t you find that the surroundings brought us terrible pressure after we just escaped? This is no doubt the main world. But, the main world’s rejection toward us is much stronger than it was hundreds of years ago even though the pressure is alleviated a lot when I’m hiding in this human body.”
“Hmph, you have been hiding in the Yan Wuyue world for many years, so naturally, you are not used to it. But I have always been in the main world. I have long been used to this kind of pressure.”
“Brother Alioth, that’s when you have the inheritor and live on the inheritor, right? Now, you may not be able to deal with it calmly.”
The cold voice suddenly fell silent.
‘Haruno Suzuki’ said calmly at this time, “Brother Alioth, since you and I have already allied, we shan’t abandon each other. Don’t worry. I won’t let you down. I’ll find a temporary vessel for you later.”
As he said, “Haruno Suzuki” turned around and walked out of the Suzuki family’s treasure room and laughed, “The current Transcendeds of the main world is in such a decline. It seems that I, Orochi Patriarch’s return is also an opportunity.”
The duo walked out of the Suzuki family’s treasure room. They were Orochi and Yin Greedy Wolf, who had escaped from the Yan Wuyue World and had somehow come into an indivisible contract.
Indeed, they were brothers in hardship.
