Boom rumble ……
The phone fell to the floor, the sound echoing through the Norah a*sembly living room.
A sudden scene.
It was like a bolt from the blue, a bang that hit everyone present.
Everyone was dumbfounded!
Even Old Man Long’s eyes were wide open as his essence exploded.
Chen Dong’s right hand gripped the Bladeless Heavy Sword tightly, Qi energy surrounding the sword, and as the sword hung down, a drop of crystal blood slowly dripped onto the ground.
Opposite him, Old Master Zhao’s features were twisted and his eyes were rounded as he stared deadly at Chen Dong, full of horror and disbelief.
His lips were stuttering, wanting to say something, but the line of blood on his throat made him make a “ho ho” sound like a bellows.
The red, stinging blood quickly flowed down the wound on Old Master Zhao’s neck, staining the front of his body red.
“I said …… was for you to explain your last words to her, but you’re just too noisy!”
Chen Dong looked indifferent, his gaze looking straight at Old Master Zhao: “Now, you can go on your way and end your life at a hundred years old, it is also your fortune.”
The words were cold and harsh, like a death sentence, echoing in the parlour.
Old Master Zhao fell heavily to the ground, and the blood on his neck quickly stained away, wrapping around the mobile phone that had fallen to the ground.
This scene was extremely visually striking.
As Old Master Zhao fell, after two seconds of silence from the mobile phone on the ground, the hissing voice of Old Lady Chen finally rang out.
“Chen Dong …… you wild B*****d, is seeking death!”
Each word was uttered with almost all her strength.
Chen Dong, however, smiled a bitter smile, “If old madam is not satisfied, she can summon me back to the Chen family and discuss this matter publicly in front of a group of people in power in the Chen family! Raising a dog should be taught, if you let a vicious dog bite people recklessly, don’t blame the next person for killing the dog and stewing the meat, Old Madam …… is not me, Chen Dong, who let you raise a dog without teaching it?”
Chen Dong qi energy surge, the hand without a blade blatantly waved, the blood pool of mobile phones should be exploded into two pieces.
Boss Zhao and the others finally snapped out of their shock.
Several of them cried and howled, and flung themselves next to Old Master Zhao, hissing and crying out in pain.
The cries echoed, miserable.
It was clearly a happy day for the 100th birthday, but in this snap of fingers, the happy event had turned into a white event!
Chen Dong’s gaze looked askance at Boss Zhao and the others, and his cold, stern voice exploded like thunder.
“In one day’s time, I want to see your attitude! Either remove the banner planted on the land where Yike has moved in, or …… the richest man in the southern border will change his banner!”
The words fell, Chen Dong turned to leave.
From the beginning to the end, he no longer looked at Boss Zhao and the others with a straight face.
“Chen Dong …… I’ll F**king fight you!”
Also just as Chen Dong turned around, a middle-aged man from the second generation of the Zhao family rose up in anger and rushed towards Chen Dong as if he was crazy.
Boss Zhao tried to stop him, but it was too late.
The moment Old Third Zhao rushed behind Chen Dong, Chen Dong turned around and simply and brutally lifted his foot and kicked Old Third Zhao out with a “bang”.
Zhao Lao San fell heavily to the ground, his face was white and a mouthful of blood spurted out in pain.
Chen Dong’s eyebrows knitted together and his murderous intent was awe-inspiring, “How dare you stand in my way, Chen Dong? As the young master of the Chen family, I can’t even stop your master!”
Every word and deed was domineering and rampant.
Even Elder Long was looking at Chen Dong with an even more confused look at this moment.
Young master …… is just too weird today!
After walking out of the meeting room, Chen Dong and Elder Long did not stop, and directly walked through the group of Zhao family guards as if in full view of everyone.
And behind them, also as the two of them walked out of the meeting room, the sound of the door closing instantly rang out.
Step by step, they walked towards the outside of the Zhao family manor.
Chen Dong and Elder Long had always attracted the attention of the entire audience, while the Zhao family guards looked scandalised, and no one stopped them without orders from the Zhao family.
There were gazes of horror, confusion and even more complexity, all of them staring at Chen Dong and Elder Long.
No one knew what was going on in the parlour.
But the scene at the entrance of the Zhao family manor was shocking enough.
As Chen Dong and Elder Long walked out of the Zhao Family Manor and left in the Rolls Royce, the entire Zhao Family Manor was still in an eerie silence.
The Rolls-Royce sped down the road.
Long Lao, who was driving the car, was full of incomprehension, his gaze profoundly looking at Chen Dong in the back row through the rear-view mirror from time to time.
Chen Dong, on the other hand, leaned back in his seat, gazing at the rapidly receding scenery outside the window, pondering.
Sensing Elder Long’s gaze, Chen Dong smiled gently, “What’s wrong? Elder Long?”
With this smile, the atmosphere in the car also eased up considerably.
The killing intent was suddenly greatly reduced.
“Young Master is too strange today, making the old slave somewhat unfamiliar.”
Elder Long spoke bluntly.
From the beginning to the end, the feeling Chen Dong gave him made him a little unreadable.
Yes, just unreadable!
Elder Long was certain of himself in his mind, with his experience of reading, the huge age gap when facing Chen Dong had rarely made him feel this way.
From start to finish, it was completely baffling to the monk!
“Where’s the strangeness?”
Chen Dong’s gaze was profound, and he rubbed his nose with a strange smile.
“The entire process of entering the Zhao family to leaving, old slave felt strange.”
Elder Long frowned and murmured in confusion, “With Young Master’s heart, even if he wanted to completely knock the Zhao family and force them back, he would not be so flamboyant, so rampant, so ……”
At the end of the sentence, Long Lao’s face was full of entanglement, but his lips were mouthing and he did not continue.
“Does it feel just like a street gang floundering seed, desperate to get each other dead?”
Chen Dong asked with a strange smile.
Long Lao nodded hard: “This should not be the young master’s heart to be able to do the demeanor, kill Zhao Qian can understand, kill Zhao Qian’s father can also understand, just too ruthless and decisive, but …… Zhao Lao Taiji …… ”
“I know that, but also on purpose.”
Chen Dong rubbed his nose and said with a cold smile, “Zhao family to block us, is bound to take this step today, the only way to fast-track the promotion of Yike fully into the southwest region, even today can not see blood, without having to die any one, I have other means, able to inch tightly, step by step to force the Zhao family to break the nerve to tie their hands, but I …… don’t want to use them.”
“Don’t want to use it?”
Long Lao did not question Chen Dong’s words, alone on the way to the Zhao family, he had synthesized all of Chen Dong’s current powers, and had also anticipated some options.
On the contrary, Chen Dong had used a most simple and brutal reckless manoeuvre!
It could be described as an iron-blooded manoeuvre!
But it was even crazier than an iron-blooded manoeuvre.
“One, it’s a waste of time, and two, it won’t achieve what I want.”
Chen Dong shrugged his shoulders and his voice was cold and stern, “Since this loyal and vicious dog of the Zhao Family is jumping out on its own, this is an opportunity for us, an opportunity to test out the bottom line of the old undead’s tolerance towards me nowadays!”
Elder Long’s body shook as if he had been struck by lightning.
Even his hands trembled violently because he was so shocked, causing the Rolls-Royce to snake along the road for some distance.
Elder Long’s eyes were wide open and full of shock.
It had never occurred to him that Chen Dong’s perverse action today was to test Old Madam Chen’s bottom line!
There was a creak!
Elder Long pulled the car to the side of the road and turned back to say in a deep voice, “Young master using the richest man in the southern border to test Old Lady Chen is too risky!”
The richest man in the Southern Border was an existence that stood proud of the entire Southern Border region.
Its size, skill and heritage were in no way comparable to those of ordinary giants and magnates!
It is not polite to say that, putting aside the high and mighty Chen family, if Chen Dong’s current wealth is used to fight the Zhao family of the southern border ……
The result is that Chen Dong will win, after all, the trillions of a*sets are there!
But it would definitely break the bones!
In the beginning, when the Li family in Kyoto and the Qin family in Xishu were settled, although it was all done by Chen Dong himself, but behind them stood the mighty Chen family, with Chen Daoling single-handedly suppressing the two tycoons’ richest people, and only then was Chen Dong successful in eating away at them.
This time, there was no Chen family behind Chen Dong, and there was no Chen Daolin’s hand to oppress him!
Chen Dong rubbed his nose and smiled a bitter smile, “The risks are great and so are the rewards, how can we test where the bottom line of the old immortal against us really is without taking the risk once?”
With his father missing and the Chen family in turmoil, the ripple effect was that the world would be in chaos before it was.
With such a situation, Chen Dong was really not sure what kind of attitude the Chen family held towards him after he left the Chen family!
The a*sa*sination mission by the Darknet Hidden Killers was his way of avenging the Zheng family, and also a way to distract Old Lady Chen, the Gu family and the Iga Ryu from his attention.
Only by testing the bottom line of Old Lady Chen’s tolerance towards him could he be able to navigate his subsequent business operations with ease.
This is like a circle, the Chen family has drawn a circle for him, within which he can roam freely, but only if he can find out in advance where the edge of the circle is, so that he does not jump out of the circle and touch the bottom line of the Chen family when he is roaming.
Knowing one’s enemy and knowing oneself is not just for the battlefield, it is also applicable in the marketplace!
From childhood to adulthood, Chen Dong’s experience and mentality have made him never fight unprepared battles. If Yike wants to push the rolling wheel of trillions of a*sets, he has to probe ahead to find out where the bottom line is.
Although the trillion dollar a*set is a lot, it is far from enough when compared to the great Chen family, and Chen Dong is not willing to throw everything he has at it as a last resort!
After a pause, Chen Dong narrowed his eyes, his essence flickering: “Next, it depends on the attitude of the old immortal!”
After returning to Tianmen Mountain Villa, Chen Dong and the others all stayed inside the villa.
The industries under his command were also all under the remote control of Old Man Long.
For a whole day, the whole area of the southern border was calm.
The death of Zhao Qian had indeed created a storm in the southern border.
But compared to the two shocking waves of his father’s beheading and Old Master Zhao’s death on his 100th birthday, there was not a single word about it in the Southern Region.
It was as if these two heavy bombs had not appeared!
Even …… Chen Dong was ready to be held accountable by Old Lady Chen when he left the southern border, after all, the Zhao family was a loyal and vicious dog in the hands of Old Lady Chen.
The company’s main business is to provide a wide range of products and services to the public.
The loss of Old Master Zhao has left the Zhao family with a severed head and a broken heart, not only for the Zhao family, but also for Old Lady Chen.
On the contrary, there was no news for a whole day!
It was early that morning.
Chen Dong was flipping through the Chinese news in his study when Gu Qingying walked in with a bowl of hot porridge.
The New Year had pa*sed and the weather was gradually turning warmer. The faint golden glow of the sunrise shone in through the window and shone on Chen Dong.
It was as quiet as a painting, the years were quiet.
This scene caused a gentle smile to appear on the corner of Gu Qing Ying’s mouth, and she looked down at the porridge rising hot in her hand.
Life is just like that, someone to warm your porridge with, someone to stand with you in the dusk, she …… only asked for this!
But she is clear, from the time when Long Lao appeared beside Chen Dong, for Chen Dong to reverse his fate, the road that Chen Dong has to walk, has been far more than this simple little happiness she extravagantly asked for.
Her man …… has a long way to go in the future, the sky is high for the birds to fly, the sea is wide for the fish to fly!
And all she has to do …… is always support!
“Mr. Chen, it’s time for breakfast.”
Gu Qingying’s dazed eyes regained focus and walked over to Chen Dong’s side.
Chen Dong put down the newspaper, looked up tenderly at Gu Qingying, and then suddenly reached out and pulled Gu Qingying into his arms.
The sudden move frightened Gu Qingying into a scream of “ah”.
Luckily, although Chen Dong’s action was sudden, it was incredibly gentle, allowing Gu Qingying to sit steadily on his lap.
Chen Dong raised his hand and doted on Gu Qingying’s high nose: “You didn’t get a good night’s rest after last night, and you’re here to bring me breakfast early in the morning?”
Gu Qingying’s pretty face flushed scarlet as she snapped at Chen Dong.
At this very moment.
An awkward coughing sound broke the atmosphere that had just been dense in the study.
Gu Qingying’s delicate body trembled in fear and she got up in a panic, her pretty face was scarlet like blood and she bowed her head in shyness.
Chen Dong, on the other hand, looked back at Elder Long with a face full of black lines, “Elder Long, what light are you putting on early in the morning?”
“Cough cough …… old slave is old, how would I want to be a light bulb?”
Long Lao looked embarra*sed and raised his eyebrows, “Why don’t …… old slave go out and stand for half an hour first?”
“Half an hour is not enough!”
Chen Dong had a serious face.
The first thing you need to do is to get a good idea of what you want to do.
Gu Qingying clenched her silver teeth and pinched Chen Dong’s shoulder in anger.
“Old slave didn’t see anything, nothing at all.”
Long Lao couldn’t bear to look at him and turned his eyes sideways.
Only after some ravaging did Gu Qingying let go of Chen Dong’s shoulder and ran out of the study with her head bowed in shame and annoyance.
The door to the room closed.
Long Lao withdrew his gaze and said to Chen Dong with a straight face, “Young Master, to be reasonable, when you are shameless, you are truly shameless!”
Chen Dong: “……”
He rolled his eyes, “How can I be called shameless when I’m shameless to my wife?”
Long Lao shrugged his shoulders, but no longer continued with the topic, instead he walked over to the desk and glanced at the newspapers stacked on the table.
“The major media, the news platforms, have all silenced the matter of the Zhao family in the southern border, and in one day’s time, apart from the news of Zhao Qian’s death, not a single piece of news about the Zhao family has leaked out.”
The cynical smile on Chen Dong’s face was swept away as his gaze deepened and he smiled bitterly, “The old undead ……”
Before Chen Dong could finish his words, he was interrupted by the ringing of his mobile phone on his desk.
Chen Dong’s gaze dipped towards the phone, and when he saw the caller ID, his smile came to an abrupt end.
