In a flash of lightning, Zhou Haijian sobered up a bit and hurriedly tugged at his trousers with both hands.
“Zhou Haijian, let’s have a look, you’re really an A**hole!”
Chen Shuijia was full of sorrow and grabbed Zhou Haijian’s trousers with his hands.
Zhou Haijian struggled, “Hey, hey, hey, no, it’s not what you think, I mean the company, the company!”
“We know you are accompanying the wine, but you are accompanying a bit too much.”
Chen Duijia was full of sorrow and said unrelentingly, “Let me take a look, this is a big matter but small, maybe even a human life, Kui Gang is a sturdy man, your small body ……”
Another crony, who was also ready to take off Zhou Haijian’s trousers, agreed: “Yes, Haijian, let us take a look, it’s really hard for you this time.”
Zhou Haijian: “……”
Feeling the sympathetic gaze of Chen Shuijia and the other two companions.
Zhou Haijian had a feeling like a man on his back.
He gritted his teeth indignantly, “It’s not what you think, I’m a decent person, why would I sing ‘Chrysanthemum Ruin’?”
The three of them looked at each other in disbelief.
“I’m really just accompanying a drink, I didn’t do anything else.”
When Zhou Haijian saw the three of them dazed, he hurriedly explained again, “Moreover, this time, the harvest is quite fruitful, I’ve already obtained information about Barbarian’s intelligence from Kui Gang’s mouth.”
The words thundered out.
The three of them stared at Zhou Haijian with dumbfounded eyes.
“Really, really got it?”
Chen Shuijia asked incredulously, even though Zhou Haijian had already said it himself, he still felt like he was in a trance like a dream.
According to his estimation, with the situation in Xiongnu today, it was as difficult as heaven to find out what was going on inside the king’s palace.
By entering Xiongnu in the name of cooperative commerce, the Chen family’s caravan would not only be able to break open the Xiongnu feudal state, but would also be able to stay in Xiongnu for a long enough period of time in a dignified manner.
But Zhou Haijian’s move had directly disrupted the rhythm of his original plan!
“Really, it’s my good brother Ollie who gives!”
Zhou Haijian patted his chest proudly and said excitedly, “Barbara is now in the Xiongnu palace, when the young master fled Xiongnu, she should have been subjected to a period of slavery, but because of the Xiongnu princess’s shelter, now it is personally guarded by guards, servants waiting, froze the slave to become a small master, such a simple house arrest, I believe that for a period of time, Barbara will not be in danger! .”
With a few words, the three Chen Shuijia’s breath caught in excitement.
One of their cronies said, “Great, in that case, we can leave Xiongnu immediately and return to our orders!”
This extremely cold night, if they hadn’t been ordered to come, their Chen family caravan would not have been willing to take a big risk and run to this extra-territorial snowy plain.
“It’s impossible to get away!”
Chen Shuijia shook his head helplessly, “We came in the name of the Chen Family’s merchant team and hardened our money to pry open the Xiongnu’s border blockade, now if we don’t leave a few tens of billions in Xiongnu, the Xiongnu King won’t be foolish enough to let us go.”
At these words.
Zhou Haijian’s three faces sank at the same time.
Indeed, it was only with the purpose of cooperative commerce that the Chen family’s merchant team had knocked open the Xiongnu’s national border blockade, otherwise, given the situation in Xiongnu today, it would be impossible to enter the interior of Xiongnu, let alone these 13 Xiongnu cities.
Under the guise of commercial cooperation, if they were to turn around and leave at this moment, their name would not be right and they would not be able to leave the Xiongnu territory.
“I’ll report it first, the cooperation with the Xiongnu still has to continue.”
Chen Shuijia rubbed his temples and patted Zhou Haijian: “I was prepared to do tens of billions of dollars, but it was solved by two meals of wine for you, you should be rewarded this time!”
Inside the practice room.
Chen Dong sat calmly, mindlessly training.
His right hand was always holding his mobile phone.
He was waiting!
Waiting for news from his father about Barbara.
The heartache had long since disappeared, but his mind was preoccupied with Barbara, making it impossible for him to go into a state of forgetfulness to train.
That intense feeling of heartache, and the sound of Barbara’s screams that he heard in the forgetfulness state, always haunted him like a nightmare.
Finally …… phone vibrated.
As soon as he saw that it was his father’s phone, Chen Dong immediately picked up.
“How is Barbara?”
Chen Dong’s voice dripped with urgency.
“Don’t worry, they have already scouted out news of Barbara’s intelligence.”
Over the phone, Chen Daolin’s voice also relaxed, “That little girl suffered from slave treatment for a while after you left Xiongnu, but because of Princess Xiongnu’s shelter, she is now in the royal palace, served by special servants and guarded by guards, so her days are not bad, she is just under house arrest and losing her freedom.”
This was indeed the truth.
To be able to escape with Chen Dong, as one who was extremely close to him, and even to be caught with him, and not die, but merely lose his freedom, when Chen Dong had stabbed the Hun through the sky, was indeed possible!
Chen Dong’s hanging heart was instantly put back into his stomach.
The tightly frozen expression, too, eased down and he let out a long breath.
His eyes rolled, and Chen Dong suddenly had an idea.
Only, just as he opened his mouth, he was interrupted by Chen Daolin on the other end of the phone.
“I know what you want to say, this matter cannot be done!”
Chen Daoling’s voice was low and dripping with gravity, “The Chen family’s merchant fleet, which has no boundaries in business, is indeed able to break through the Xiongnu border and enter the thirteen Xiongnu cities, but it is absolutely impossible to take Barbara away!”
Chen Dong fell silent, this was indeed his thought.
The Chen family’s power had already penetrated into Xiongnu, so if he could take Barbara away in the process, it would be perfect.
But his father’s words had single-handedly crushed his thoughts!
“The Chen family’s caravan can get preferential treatment in Xiongnu by throwing tens of billions, but Barbara and you are about the face and dignity of the Xiongnu royal court, as well as the solidity of their royal court, tens or hundreds of billions will not smash the Xiongnu king’s face.”
“I get it, still, thanks a lot dad.”
Chen Dong said from the bottom of his heart, “I will think of another way about Barbarian.”
“Dong’er, can Dad say one more thing?”
Chen Daolin paused and said solemnly, “If you want to save Barbarian, dad can not stop it, but …… this matter please must be put after dad’s birthday banquet! Barbara will not be in danger in Xiongnu for the time being, what lies ahead of you is Pa’s upcoming grand birthday and the crucial moment for you to become the victorious king, only when you have successfully taken over the crown of the next family head from Pa will your future be completely opened up!”
“Until then, Pa would hate for you to make a big mistake on impulse! Think of your mother, think of Little Shadow, think of Long Lao and the others …… These people, once you take a wrong step, they will all end up accompanying you to pay the bill and pay the price together.”
Every word was tapered to the heart, as if each word was as heavy as a thousand pounds, pressing down on Chen Dong’s heart.
Chen Dong’s expression was gloomy to the extreme.
As his father’s words fell, Chen Dong also fell into silence.
A long time pa*sed.
Only then did Chen Dong’s gaze gradually sharpened, “Dad, don’t worry, this is something I promised Mom, and I also promised Xiaoying.”
Hang up the phone.
Chen Dong put down the phone and his gaze was as sharp as a sword.
At this moment, his aura suddenly became stern, like a sheathed sword.
He did have his heart set on Barbara.
But the promise to his mother and Gu Qingying had never been forgotten.
On the day of his father’s birthday banquet.
He would personally hold his mother’s spirit tablet and walk into the Chen family, enshrining it in the Chen family ancestral hall, so that his mother could enjoy the Chen family’s offerings for generations.
This was what mother deserved!
He would also take Gu Qingying with him, walk into the Chen Family under the attention of all, and settle on top of the President, with the world’s greatest families at his feet, and ten thousand glories surrounding Gu Qingying!
“I’m hibernating now, just to blossom into a million rays of light on that day!”
A softly murmured phrase, as if it was a vow, was firm and incomparable.
Chen Dong exhaled a breath of turbid air, and the aura on his body quickly collected.
After learning that Barbara was safe, the nightmare in his heart had also dissipated.
Nowadays, facing the situation of the Xiongnu, it was indeed as difficult as heaven for him to save Barbara, it was simply impossible!
Only after he had obtained the Chen Family Crown and asked for the Chen Family title would he have more to offer and could save Barbara.
There were priorities, and there was a sequence of events.
At this moment, Chen Dong had a clear picture in his mind.
“Ah Man, wait a little longer, when uncle becomes the next head of the Chen Family, uncle will go and pick you up under this starry sky of uncle’s.”
Chen Dong murmured softly.
With that, he was back into oblivion and continued training the first forty-two Heavenly Wolf Martial Dao Bodies.
This was the only chance he had to give himself a boost before his father’s big birthday.
It was true that an ordinary martial realm was not enough to raise the bar on the matter of confirming the Chen family head.
But having perceived “Qi” was a different story.
A martial artist who had perceived Qi would not dare to be underestimated, even in the matter of confirming the Chen family head.
The Heaven-Slaughter Bureau was hanging overhead.
Chen Dong could only cower in Zhenjiang City, protected by the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders and Huo Zhenxiao.
But saving his life also meant that he lost control of all the properties under Din Tai and so on.
The only thing he could count on when he was unable to effectively control the Dingtai and other properties was for Elder Long and Chu Reed to be able to manage the properties at their own discretion.
Full marks for the answer, which he had actually done before he arrived in the Great Snow Dragon Riders army.
Dingtai, half of the Qin family, Chu Reed’s entertainment company …… these add up to enough to crush the younger generation of the Chen family across the board.
As long as there are no changes in the family today, it is enough to deliver this report card on the day of his father’s birthday banquet.
As for Chen Tiansheng’s side, he could not be sure, nor could he speculate.
With Old Lady Chen’s banner at his back, the variables were simply too great to speculate on.
The only thing he could do now was to do his best, to try so hard that he could do nothing to deserve the month-long hibernation.
Sensing “Qi” was the only way he could do it now, and the only way he could raise the bar for himself!
It was also while Chen Dong was immersed in training his forty-two Heavenly Wolf Martial Dao Bodies.
In Huo Zhenxiao’s room.
The various instruments had not been withdrawn, and Huo Zhenxiao’s injuries were too serious to recover from for a while.
The extremely cold night.
Huo Zhenxiao’s serious injury was undoubtedly shocking news to Zhenjiang City and the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders.
Once the news spread, the Great Snow Dragon Riders would be in a state of decline before they could fight!
Both Bai Qi and the Eleven Golden Guards knew the seriousness of this matter, so these days, they were trying to conceal this secret secret by all means.
Huo Zhenxiao’s room had also become a forbidden place within Zhenjiang City.
The level of security was even more stringent than when Chen Dong was living there before.
Every shift, a Golden Guard stood guard personally.
All kinds of military affairs were also handled by the Golden Guards.
“Sovereign, Bai Qi requests an audience!”
Bai Qi’s voice came from outside the door.
Huo Zhenxiao said calmly.
When Bai Qi walked into the room and saw Huo Zhenxiao lying on the bed, his expression could not help but obscure a few more points.
The matter of Huo Zhenxiao being seriously injured was a big pressure for him and the Eleven Golden Guards.
While guarding the secret secret, he still had to keep Zhenjiang City and the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders running as normal.
But compared to the Eleven Golden Guards, Bai Qi was the most “comfortable” of them all.
After all, he no longer held the position of Dragon Head Guard and did not have to run the daily affairs of the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders.
All he did was to look after Huo Zhenxiao and Chen Dong.
“How is that boy?”
Huo Zhenxiao asked with raised eyebrows, “Closing up to death in a practice room, or for more than a month, is not something an ordinary person can endure.”
A closed room, alone.
Loneliness, boredom and all sorts of emotions would climb all over one’s body, making it difficult to calm down.
That kind of feeling, Huo Zhenxiao had experienced it himself, so he knew better that few people could do it.
“Everything is fine with Dragon Head Chen, according to what he himself said, he intends to sense out his Qi before his father’s big birthday.”
Bai Qi was responsible for serving Chen Dong tea and food, and some of Chen Dong’s intentions had been told to him.
“Sensing out Qi?”
Even Huo Zhenxiao could not help but be surprised for a moment, “This kid is really daring to think, a month or so, to sense Qi, I Huo Zhenxiao would like to call him the strongest!”
To a martial artist, the realization of Qi is the transformation of strength from quantity to quality!
The hardships involved were clear to Huo Zhenxiao.
Even if the “Nine Heavens Frightening Dragon Technique” could increase the chances of perceiving “Qi”, it was impossible for Chen Dong to actually perceive Qi in a month or so!
If Qi was really that easy to perceive, ancient martial arts would not have fallen from grace step by step throughout the ages.
This is something that requires time, enlightenment and luck!
Even Huo Zhenxiao did not dare to hope that he would be able to perceive Qi in just a month or so when he received Chen Daojun’s transmission of the Nine Heavens’ Frightening Dragon Technique.
However, he did not know that.
Chen Dong, who was now in the training room in seclusion, was not just training in the Nine Heavens Frightening Dragon Technique!
Instead, he was using the Nine Heavens Frightening Dragon Technique as a reference to repeat the first forty-two Heavenly Wolf Martial Dao Bodies!
It was true that following the main line would yield minimal gains, but …… what about following the general outline of enlightenment?
This is not an algorithm where one plus one equals two, but one plus one is far greater than two, infinite possibilities!
Bai Qi scratched his head, apparently also not optimistic about Chen Dong’s plan: “Chen Long’s path of martial dao is soaring, he has not suffered any hiccups along the way, so it is inevitable that he has misjudged the gap between the heavenly rift and the gulf in the martial realm, I guess.”
“Let him be, there are infinite possibilities in this kid, maybe he’ll actually make it.”
Huo Zhenxiao waved his hand.
At that very moment, the mobile phone rang.
Once he saw the caller ID, Huo Zhenxiao’s eyes lit up.
The call, as it turned out, was from Chen Daolin.
“Clan Master Chen, what can I do for you?”
Immediately afterwards, Huo Zhenxiao was silent.
However, Bai Qi at the side clearly saw that in his silence, Huo Zhenxiao’s expression was changing rapidly.
His face turned red, his neck thickened.
Even his round eyes were glowing with light and radiance.
Hang up the phone.
Huo Zhenxiao was relieved and smiled spontaneously, “Bai Qi, Chen Dong’s Heavenly Character First Gong, there it is!”
