A night without words.
The next morning.
Chen Dong slowly opened his eyes, the smell of smoke and alcohol all over him made him wrinkle his nose.
The hangover had left him with a splitting headache.
He struggled to sit up, rubbed his head and saw that he was in his bedroom.
But on the bed, there was only himself.
At that very moment, Gu Qingying pushed open the door to the room, carrying a bowl of steaming white porridge.
Seeing Chen Dong, Gu Qingying smiled and said, “The congee has just been boiled, have some to warm your stomach.”
Looking at Gu Qingying who was slowly walking towards him.
A warm feeling flowed in Chen Dong’s heart.
There was a time when all he had ever wished for was this scene in front of him.
If he had a choice now, he would also not hesitate to choose the small warmth in front of him.
By preference …… body could not help itself!
“Thank you wife.”
Chen Dong took the hot porridge, and under his hunger, he blew on it while taking two large sips.
He did not notice in the slightest.
Next to him, Gu Qingying’s expression became somewhat complicated.
“Husband, do you still remember what happened last night?”
Gu Qingying frowned slightly as she inquired.
Chen Dong’s heart skipped a beat, could it be that he had drunk too much last night and had told Little Ying everything he had kept inside?
Did he spill the beans after drinking?
He slowly looked up and saw Gu Qingying’s frowning, grave and solemn face.
This made Chen Dong even more anxious.
He felt Gu Qingying’s gaze on him.
Chen Dong smiled awkwardly, “A little bit can’t remember!”
Gu Qingying’s beautiful eyes emerged with anger, angrily raising her hand to pinch Chen Dong’s shoulder fiercely, blaming him, “Why did you drink so much last night? You are already a father soon, do you have any numbers in your heart?”
“It hurts ……”
Chen Dong grimaced and sucked in cool air, but did not dare to struggle.
However, Gu Qingying’s words calmed him down.
It seemed that he hadn’t spilled the beans last night, and it was only because he was drunk that he had angered Xiaoying.
After making sure that Gu Qingying did not know about it.
Chen Dong hurriedly begged for mercy, “Wife, it hurts, it hurts, let go, it’s going to kill me.”
Seeing Chen Dong’s face full of pain.
Gu Qingying hurriedly let go of his hand, then sat aside with no good grace: “Now you know it hurts? Why didn’t you know last night? I was pregnant, you were so drunk that you couldn’t swing you at all, and the whole night, the baby and I were smelling the stench all over you.”
Chen Dong was stunned for a moment, looking at the clothes he was wearing, guilt raging.
This stench of smoke and alcohol was too much even for him to bear.
Not to mention, it was the pregnant Gu Qingying, and for a whole night!
“Wife, I’m sorry, there will never be a next time!”
Chen Dong hugged Gu Qingying with a heart full of guilt: “I will take care of you and the baby first in the future.”
Gu Qingying struggled out, heartbroken and annoyed, blaming, “I’m not saying that you should take care of me and the baby first, but you have to take care of yourself first, I understand all the pressure you’re under, you’re also the backbone of the family, what about the family if you spoil your body?”
At the end of the sentence, Gu Qingying’s beautiful eyes filled with mist.
Chen Dong hastily hugged Gu Qingying, rubbing her back while soothing her, “Alright, alright, don’t cry, you’re pregnant, crying will hurt your body.”
“You’re the one who made me cry.”
Gu Qingying raised her hand to wipe her tears, forcing herself to hold back her sobs.
“Well, it’s only this time, there won’t be any more in the future.”
Chen Dong said, raising his right hand and putting up three fingers.
The teary-eyed Gu Qingying pressed his right hand down, “There is no need for you to swear, just remember what you made us mothers suffer last night, besides, when the sky falls, I am behind you, and the baby, it is good that we are together as a family, you should not put too much pressure on yourself.”
“Fine, fine, I understand, our housekeeper’s wife’s words, that’s holy writ!”
Chen Dong smiled, dotingly scraping the bridge of Gu Qingying’s high nose.
Gu Qingying’s expression finally eased as she pointed to the hot congee on the bedside table, “Drink the congee quickly, I’ll serve you more if it’s not enough.”
Half an hour later.
Chen Dong had already changed into a suit and taken a hot shower, his disheveled look from the hangover was swept away and his whole body was refreshed.
After going downstairs and saying goodbye to Gu Qingying, he took Long Lao with him to Dingtai Company.
The situation was already half laid.
A month was enough time for the entire southwest region to build up momentum and ferment.
Now at this juncture, every second counts!
Waiting for Chen Dong and Elder Long to leave.
Gu Qingying cleaned up the cups and plates on the dining table together with Wu Chang and Qin Xiao Qian.
While collecting the dishes, Gu Qingying’s mind drifted off for a moment, and the bowl in her hand slipped to the floor and broke all over the place.
A sudden scene.
It frightened Wu Chang and Qin Xiao Qian, who hurriedly ran out of the kitchen.
Even Fan Lu and Zhao Broken, who were in wheelchairs, hurriedly pushed their wheelchairs and rushed over.
“Nothing, nothing, my hand slipped and dropped a few bowls, I’ll just clean up a bit.”
Gu Qingying smiled awkwardly, squatted down and started to clean up the broken pieces.
A stinging pain entered her hand.
The pain caused Gu Qingying’s eyebrows to wrinkle slightly and she screamed softly in pain.
“Sister Xiao Ying!”
Wu Chang and Qin Xiao Qian hurriedly went forward and helped Gu Qingying up.
While Gu Qingying was dazed and lost in thought, looking at her right hand, when she touched the shard just now, her right index finger was drawn through a gash by the edge of the sharp shard, and was dripping with blood at this moment.
“I’ll go get a tourniquet.”
Qin Xiao Qian’s face changed.
Wu Chang helped Gu Qing Ying sit down, “You rest for a while, I’ll just clean up.”
“My mother used to say that it’s unlucky to break a bowl in the house.”
Gu Qingying looked worriedly at the bloody right index finger: “Auntie Wu Chang, do you think this will ……”
“Which is not.”
Changeless laughed and shook her head, “You’re just pregnant, people become sensitive and wishy-washy.”
Gu Qingying pondered for a moment, “I guess …… it is.”
When Chen Dong and Long Lao arrived, they dragged Xiao Ma directly into the office.
Xiao Ma piled a thick weight of documents onto Chen Dong’s desk.
“Brother Dong, the information on the one hundred and thirty pieces of land we have taken over the past month is all here.”
Xiao Ma was wearing two dark circles under his eyes, his face full of haggardness.
Over the past month, he had basically been personally involved in the land acquisition by Dingtai.
Chen Dong was responsible for the selection, while he was all on the field himself, which was not an ordinary drain on his body!
“Well, you go and rest for a while, I’ll call you in when the decision is made.”
Chen Dong glanced at Xiao Ma and was somewhat speechless, “You kid are at least a vice president now, you still can’t pick a few people in your hands to help you run the show? Do you have to do it one by one personally?”
Xiao Ma smiled awkwardly, “I’m afraid that they won’t do well in what you’ve explained, so I have to do it myself.”
Chen Dong waved his hand and gestured for Xiao Ma to go and rest.
After the office door closed.
Long Lao, who was sitting in his wheelchair, frowned, “Young master, you really want to auction off the land again?”
“Well, pick out ten pieces first.”
Chen Dong flipped through the information as he said, “It was only after good words last night that Uncle Meng agreed to help me host the auction.”
“What time is the auction scheduled for?”
Elder Long’s brows were knitted together, full of doubts.
Even he was not sure what exactly Chen Dong was calculating with these recent operations.
Chen Dong placed a piece of land information aside alone, raised his eyes in thought and said, “Two days later, right, Elder Long you still have to work with Xiao Ma to spread the news of our land auction in two days and ferment it first.”
“Young master, what kind of plan do you have this time?”
Long Lao looked at Chen Dong with an air of confidence and could not help but feel anxious in his heart.
The same words had been asked by him more than once during this period of time!
He had announced that he would accelerate the construction and development of Yike in the southwest region, that he would work with the Dingsheng Consortium to create an “Eastern Wall Street” in the southwest region, and that the Dingsheng Consortium would relocate its headquarters to the southwest region.
Everything was done with great fanfare.
However, in Elder Long’s opinion, each of them was not suitable for such fanfare!
Such a sensational event.
It was true that it could attract a huge influx of hot money into the Southwest Region within a short period of time.
But when the money poured in, it also poured in a group of world powers like tigers and wolves and snakes!
Not to mention others, those in power in the Gu family, Iga Ryu and Chen family alone will definitely not stand by and watch Chen Dong sit on his hands.
Wouldn’t such a public announcement draw people from these few forces to flock to the Southwest Region and flash their claws at Chen Dong?
Chen Dong slowly looked towards Elder Long, his eyes shining with an incomparable determination.
Elder Long froze for a moment.
Chen Dong asked, “Have I ever let you down?”
Elder Long shook his head dryly, “Ever since I first met Young Master, Young Master’s ability and heart have amazed my old slave time and time again… Of all the young generations in the world, Young Master is the leader and deserves it!”
Chen Dong’s face was ancient, without sorrow or joy: “At my father’s birthday banquet, have I ever let you and him down?”
Elder Long shook his head, “Young master was able to crush the younger generation of the Chen family with his own strength, even if the old lady fully favored Chen Tiansheng, he was single-handedly suppressed by young master, such answers are the most in the history of the Chen family!”
“This time …… I will win!”
Chen Dong’s gaze was firm, and in an instant, his entire aura rose dramatically, like a sharp sword out of its sheath, stern and domineering, wanting to tear the heavens apart.
Sensing the change in Chen Dong’s aura.
Elder Long’s breath caught and his heart beat wildly.
Step by step, Chen Dong’s performance was nothing short of amazing.
Even in desperate situations where even Elder Long himself was at his wits’ end, Chen Dong had always managed to turn danger into peace time and again with a divine stroke.
This time, can it really work?
When he was vying for the position of family head, he was facing the Chen family oppression, as well as the Gu family, the Iga Ryu, the Blood Angels organization, which were the few forces that oppressed him.
But this time, it was facing the whole world directly!
The forces of the world were involved in the southwest region.
Such a scene, in which the forces were intertwined and criss-crossed, would be difficult for even Elder Long to handle, even if he asked himself.
And now, Chen Dong’s chestiness and certainty of victory had caused Long Lao to have doubts about Chen Dong for the first time.
“Young master, this time …… is facing the whole world!”
Long Lao’s face was hard to read, as if he was squeezing out this sentence with all his might.
“What I want to F**k over is this whole world!”
Chen Dong raised his eyebrows, overbearing and domineering, his aura majestic: “Those who insult me, those who deceive me, those who harm me, will be returned tenfold, I just want the winner to be the king, this road, I have no choice, Chen Daojun didn’t give me a F**king choice either! Whether you call me desperate or insane, I want to fight and win this battle, this is …… a sure win!”
The words were as strong as a big thunder.
Long Lao’s entire body was stunned.
He grabbed the armrests of his wheelchair with both hands, the bruises on the back of his hands protruding, and wanted to get up.
But his broken leg made it impossible for him to stand up.
The Chen Dong in front of him gave him a feeling of madness like a demon.
Even, if Chen Dong’s eyes were not still clear, Elder Long suspected that Chen Dong had already entered the state of Daoist devil once again.
One person …… singled out the world, how could this be fought? How can one win? How could it be considered a sure win?
“Young master ……”
Chen Dong landed his palm on the desk: “Long Lao, trust me, this time, I will not lose, it is about my wife and children, if I can win, my wife and children will be fine, if I lose, my Chen Dong family, all of them will go to the Yellow Springs, do you think I, Chen Dong, can bet my life, will be a person who will bet the life of his wife and children?”
Long Lao’s body went limp and his whole body slumped into the wheelchair.
In his mind, a scene from the past came to mind.
At this moment, he had a feeling of suffocation and the sky was spinning.
Chen Dong’s words had made him feel powerless to return to heaven.
But on second thought, was Chen Dong …… really someone who would not hesitate to gamble with his wife and children?
Elder Long even felt that if there was no way back, Chen Dong might just end everything on top of Chen Daoling’s big birthday winner is king!
A long time later.
Long Lao slowly exhaled a breath and said, “Young Master, old slave help you.”
A smile finally appeared on Chen Dong’s face as he clutched up a pile of land information and placed it on the desk in front of Elder Long, “Help me choose the land, ten plots of land, I want all of them to be near the headquarters of Yike and Ding Sheng!”
Long Lao had not yet adjusted from his earlier state and was immediately shocked by Chen Dong’s words again, causing his body to tremble.
“Young master, even if we were to auction off a full hundred and thirty pieces of land, we can just pick some of the ones with medium to low value, the land near Yike and Dingsheng, that’s an inch of land with endless future potential!”
Chen Dong rubbed his nose and smiled oddly, “It’s the endless potential that makes it worthwhile to auction.”
Elder Long: “???”
In a flash, the doubts in his mind were even more complicated.
What exactly is Young Master …… calculating?
Doubt to doubt, Elder Long still forced himself to endure it, and together with Chen Dong, he selected ten of the one hundred and thirty plots of land near Yike and Dingsheng, whose value was even considered to be top grade, or even extremely high grade.
With Long Lao’s years of experience and experience in the shopping mall, it seems that these ten plots of land, not to mention the number of years ahead, will be worth at least ten times more in the next three years alone!
And now …… is about to cut out the meat!
“Young master, do you really intend to auction these ten plots of land?”
Elder Long was somewhat uncomfortable and asked again.
Chen Dong’s right hand landed on the information regarding the ten plots of land: “Just these ten plots …… are fat enough!”
After a pause, Chen Dong said to Elder Long: “Please ask Elder Long to work with Xiao Ma to put out the news that our Dingtai Group, me Chen Dong, will auction these ten pieces of land in two days!”
Elder Long’s expression changed and his lips mumbled, “Alright, alright.”
As Elder Long left.
Chen Dong’s expression gradually became cold, and his eyes became more and more firm and stern.
“Little shadow, baby …… this one, if I win, I won’t have to follow in my father’s footsteps …… but may the gods bless and grant me Chen Dong this kowtow.”
Words from the heart, echoed the office.
The old man who left, however, found Xiao Ma and quickly spread the news that Dingtai Group would be auctioning off ten plots of land.
The local roots gave Dingtai strong public relations skills.
With the operation of Long Lao and Xiao Ma, not only the Dingtai Group, but also the resources in the hands of Zhou Yanqiu and Zhou Zunlong, were all put into operation.
Even though Zhou Yanqiu and Zhou Zunlong had been sitting on losing land, they still didn’t dare to disobey!
With the news of “Dingtai Group’s public auction of ten plots of land”, the entire southwest region was shaken.
Beneath the night …… undercurrents were raging.
A storm is building up with this news. ……
