Chapter 112: The Charm of Finance

After the Special Event Research Institute was established, Uesugi Kiyoshi started collecting materials related to space.

As expected, 12 years ago, at the beginning of the 21st century, a famous Japanese astronomer Dr. Takahiro Okamoto published a paper, speculating the existence of a wormhole in a corner of the Milky Way in the constellation Hydra.

The so-called wormhole is like a shortcut connecting two universes.

His theory had no solid evidence to support it, so it was not taken seriously. But Uesugi Kiyoshi knew that this speculation was completely accurate. Calculating the time, the terrifying entity named Hellstar had crossed the wormhole and arrived in this universe!

It existed in the form of a planet, with a radius of thirty thousand kilometers and a mass ninety times that of Earth. Its speed could even surpass the speed of light, and its food source was the planets along its way.

Once humans know about Hellstar, Hellstar will also know about humans and head towards Earth quickly until it devours this delicious planet.

Uesugi Kiyoshi even suspects that by simply observing the corresponding stars consciously, without needing to find its exact trace, one might catch its attention.

So after seizing power, he gathered astronomers from all over the world through various means, guiding them to avoid potential dangers.

The funds raised by the company were used half for exploring outer space, providing a last escape route for humans in case things could not be undone, to flee from Earth.

Uesugi Kiyoshi thought he had at least twenty years to prepare, but the demon didn't give him that time.

There were strange descriptions on the parchment, but as Ode said, knowing them didn't help.

Even so, he would not compromise!

Otherwise, human courage and confidence would be worn away in repeated compromises, eventually turning into sheep in the owner's hands, with life and death controlled by others!

Since his power was no longer enough to fight, he had to seek outside help.

Five months ago, when the fish tide had just begun, at Uesugi Kiyoshi's direction, large space telescopes distributed around the world simultaneously observed a certain area in the constellation Hydra, where the Hellstar was located according to future intelligence.

Such observations naturally could not discover any traces of the target, but for Hellstar, it was like a bright light shining in the dark night, like a naked provocation to the weak.

Under extreme desire and anger, the distance of 16 light-years meant it only needed five months to reach there.

Now Hellstar has reached the edge of the solar system, ready to enjoy this rich feast.

How will the demons act now?

When a hungry wolf came outside the sheep pen, even the weakest shepherd would pick up their rifle and bravely go out!

Ode didn't fully believe Uesugi Kiyoshi's words, this guy's words were not reliable at all.

After going there in person, he had to admit that the materials he had seen before were indeed true. The tongue stretching out tens of thousands of kilometers from the core of the planet, was now swallowing Pluto whole, almost leaving him behind.

After narrowly escaping, Ode returned to hell and gathered all the great demons together.

In just a short half day, Neptune, a gas planet four times the size of Earth, has been completely swallowed up.

There isn't much time left for Earth!

After a brief discussion, pairs of hands as hot as lava tightly gripped each other.

To defend their homes and food, they were willing to pay any price, even their lives!

Without needing encouragement or many words, countless dazzling lights shot from hell towards the sky, lighting up the night like daylight!

What is courage? Courage is understanding and controlling fear. The devil's anthem is the anthem of courage, and the devil's greatness is the greatness of courage!

...............

Watching them leave Earth and become brilliant stars in the sky, Uesugi Kiyoshi rubbed his face to relax a bit, then headed to the Hell Exchange.

The Exchange was established five months ago, under Hell Bank, and currently mainly trades in a futures contract called Fear Gem, which is a standardized tradable contract based on human fears.

The salesmen with charming tongues visited each big demon in hell, persuading them to invest.

"Human fear is in high demand, it will never fall, it will increase in value as long as you hold onto it, and the returns are much higher than bank interest!"

"Not familiar with trading? No problem, we have professional traders dedicated to serving you!"

"Don't trust humans? That's Lord Ode's idea, surely you trust him, right?"

"Diversifying investments is the safest way to profit, you can simply buy a little bit as a financial supplement!"

Everything they said made sense, so sales of Fear Gems were very popular, and buyers made a lot of profits in the past few months.

Today is the last trading day of the month.

The hall was filled with traders, when they saw Uesugi Kiyoshi, they stopped their actions and cheered together.

"No need for pleasantries, let's get to work everyone!"

All the big evil demons left the Earth and went to a galaxy 2.6 billion kilometers away. Now, only Uesugi Kiyoshi's people are left in the entire market.

The controllers for short selling and long buying are completely in his hands. The price of Fear Gems is totally up to him to decide. No matter how low the price is, investors must accept it and make the deal.

Traders will help them make the right decisions.

So, the final settlement price is -8764 soul energy per deal.

It's like spending two dollars to buy a lottery ticket, scratching it off, and seeing it say, "Congratulations, you've won -5 million!"

"Force liquidate!"

With this command, all contracts were sold. Investors not only lost everything, but also owed the bank a lot of soul energy.

As the executive director of Hell Bank, Uesugi Kiyoshi had the right to choose when to demand repayment, and he chose immediately without hesitation.

After the pre-deposited margin was deducted, unusual ownership was used as collateral. Even then, the ownership couldn't cover the debt, so it was deducted from oneself!

At the distant edge of the solar system, demons resisting Hellstar turned into ashes in confusion, and their energy transferred to the bank, which is on Ode's body.

The comparison between different strengths is not simply about addition and subtraction.

A person with a combat power of five, even if stacked with many others, cannot harm a strong opponent with a combat power over a hundred. But when they raise their hands and concentrate their strengths together, they can even destroy terrifying beings that roam the universe.

Since Ode couldn't bear to do this, Uesugi Kiyoshi had to be the bad guy for him.

Gazing at the stars, he silently prayed in his heart.

Please don't disappoint me!
