No sleep all night.
Chen Dong returned sleepily to Tianmen Mountain Villa.
As soon as he entered the door.
Gu Qingying frowned and greeted him.
“It rained all night, where did you go last night?”
While saying this, she also pulled up the wet clothes on Chen Dong’s body, angry and heartbroken.
Chen Dong smiled, “Trying to cool off outside, by the way, where is Zhuge Qing?”
“He went to Dingtai with Elder Long early in the morning.”
Gu Qingying said while helping Chen Dong take off his clothes, “Go take a hot bath and change your clothes, be careful of catching a cold.”
Back to the bedroom.
Chen Dong washed up and then dialed a number to Zhuge Qing with his wet hair.
“Mr. Chen, what happened last night had a big impact.”
As soon as he was connected, Zhuge Qing on the phone took the lead and said in a deep voice, “I anticipated it in advance and brought Elder Long to the company early in the morning, but the situation is still tricky.”
“Well, it’s hard work for you guys.”
Chen Dong was not surprised, last night at the Four Seals Clubhouse, he was as humble as dust, those magnate family heads and power giants who had fallen into the well could never have hidden this matter.
Not to mention, last night’s banquet was itself a mutual test.
Since he had put his stance out there, he was already prepared for today.
And …… this itself was the situation Chen Dong wanted!
“It’s not hard work, but Mr. Chen, the windy public opinion has already fermented to its peak, and with you being like that last night, it is expected that within the last few days, the property prices and land prices across the southwest region will go into an avalanche.”
Zhuge Qing’s voice was gruff.
“The wind has picked up!”
Chen Dong smiled faintly, his gaze profoundly looked out of the window, gradually becoming harsh and icy: “The roc flies up with me in one day, and flies up 90,000 miles, this time …… depends on those magnates and giants, whether they will fly upwards with me, or fall down!”
Hang up the phone.
Chen Dong changed into a casual outfit and left the villa.
Skating along the road in the villa area, after making sure that Gu Qingying had not followed him, he then dialed Yuan Yigang’s number.
The matter of his father-in-law and mother-in-law had always been on his mind, as if it was a sharp knife stuck in his heart, keeping him awake at night and making him anxious.
The Hong Society, with its 3,600 gates, had been probing for so long, using the entire intelligence agency, but there was no news.
And now, the news came from a man who was only worth a mere ten billion dollars.
After all, we had to talk to Yuan Yigang about this matter!
Soon, the call was answered.
Chen Dong greeted calmly.
“Elder Zu, there is no news of your father-in-law and mother-in-law yet.”
Over the phone, Yuan Yigang spoke straightforwardly as if he had expected something.
“I have news!”
Chen Dong’s brows lowered.
Yuan Yigang gave a startled cry, and immediately the other end of the phone returned to dead silence.
Chen Dong was not surprised, the Hong Society’s 3,600 gates had been probing with all their might for such a long time without any news, but he had now received news.
This was not a small shock to Yuan Yigang, who was the leader of the Hong Society!
There was a silence for about five seconds.
On the other end of the phone, Yuan Yigang’s voice finally rang out, “Elder Zu, how do you know the news? What news?”
“Check the Oceanic Lidong Group for me, the news was told to me personally by the chairman of Oceanic Lidong Group, Zhang Lidong, in person, he only said that my father-in-law and mother-in-law were well.”
Chen Dong frowned and murmured, “I suspect that what happened to my father-in-law and mother-in-law is related to Sino-Ocean Lidong.”
Yuan Yigang gave a startled eek, “Alright, I’ll start investigating right now.”
The phone hung up.
Chen Dong’s expression dropped coldly, and a gust of coldness radiated from his body.
Even though it was a warm morning sun, the temperature around him plummeted by a fraction.
“Zhang Lidong, if you really have something to do with what happened to my father-in-law and mother-in-law, this time …… you won’t be able to go back!”
Chen Dong’s lips and teeth were lightly opened, his voice sounded like a cold wind blowing from the depths of the Nine Secrets.
He did not mind what happened last night.
Being able to grit his teeth, lower his head and bend his spine, this was nothing to Chen Dong.
He had experienced the same thing countless times since he was a child.
To a certain extent, he even had to thank Zhang Lidong for setting up a banquet invitation last night.
Without last night’s banquet, Chen Dong would have been worried about how he would have kicked out this final kick.
It just so happens that Zhang Lidong’s invitation to the banquet was a godsend to Chen Dong!
But …… if Zhang Lidong is involved in the matter with his father and mother-in-law, Chen Dong will have a different attitude towards Zhang Lidong!
The other side of the ocean.
Hong Hui, Shanhe Guild Hall.
After Yuan Yigang hung up the phone, his eyes under his gold-rimmed gla*ses were rare and deep.
As if a statue, he stood in the courtyard, motionless.
Yuan Yigang’s right hand gripped the phone tightly as he murmured, “Have they …… already sulked?”
As he murmured, he left the courtyard in big strides and walked towards Ye Yuanqiu’s courtyard.
This matter, he was a bit indecisive and could only find Ye Yuanqiu to discuss it.
At this moment, Ye Yuanqiu was exercising in the courtyard.
Even at his advanced age, he had never slackened off in his martial arts training, day after day.
Ye Linglong, meanwhile, is sitting on a stone bench to one side, peeling an apple, with a fruit plate, hot tea and a towel on the stone table next to him.
The training was over.
The high intensity of the training had left Ye Yuanqiu sweating and panting.
He walked over to Ye Linglong and picked up a towel to wipe his sweat stains.
Ye Linglong got up and handed a peeled apple to Ye Yuanqiu’s hand, saying heartily, “Grandpa, you’re already at this age, why do you still take martial arts so seriously? The Hong Society has Brother Yigang, you should enjoy your blessings!”
Ye Yuanqiu narrowed his eyes and said with a smile, “Linglong, grandfather, this is called an old steed aspiring to a thousand miles, before one dies, then one should persevere, opportunity is never reserved for those who are prepared.”
Why did grandpa’s words sound strange?
Ye Linglong’s beautiful eyes were flooded with a touch of doubt.
At that very moment, Yuan Yigang came in with a grave face and hurriedly walked in.
When he saw Ye Linglong, he was surprised for a moment.
Immediately, he greeted, “Elder Ancestor, Linglong, you are all here?”
“Yigang ah, is there something early in the morning?”
Ye Linglong greeted, while Ye Yuanqiu inquired.
Yuan Yigang hesitated for a moment.
Ye Yuanqiu instantly understood: “Linglong, you go out first, I’ll talk to your brother Yigang about something.”
Ye Linglong rolled her eyes and directly left the courtyard.
Yuan Yigang deliberately closed the courtyard door before walking to Ye Yuanqiu’s side and staring in a deep voice, “Chen Dong has already found out the news that his father-in-law and mother-in-law are still well through Zhang Lidong of Oceanic Lidong!”
Ye Yuanqiu’s face changed drastically and he exclaimed, the towel in his hand slammed heavily on the stone table, “D*mn it! This B*****d Zhang Lidong, how dare he ruffle the dragon’s feathers, where does he put my Hong Society?”
The brief conversation between the two men revealed an extremely important matter.
That is …… Hong Hui has not been silent about Gu Guohua and his wife!
“The big man coiled up behind Zhang Lidong, we haven’t found out yet either!”
Looking at Ye Yuanqiu, who was thundering with explosive anger, Yuan Yigang said with a gloomy expression.
They, it was not that they had no news of Gu Guohua and his wife!
In fact, after Chen Dong had asked for their help earlier, they had immediately mobilised the 3,600 gates of the Hong Society, and although the process had been difficult and had taken a long time, there had been results after all.
The reason why they had kept Chen Dong hidden was that during the investigation, they had sensed that there was a lofty mountain coiled behind Zhang Lidong.
In the eyes of the Hong Society, Zhang Lidong was no different from a mole, and would not be put in the eye.
However, if they did not find out everything about the great mountain behind Zhang Lidong, they would be in danger if they did not make a move.
The reason he did not tell Chen Dong was that he was worried that Chen Dong would act impulsively in a hurry.
As time pa*sed, the man behind Zhang Li remained mysterious and unpredictable, and even though the 3,600 gates of the Hong Society did their best to investigate, they found nothing.
This made the fear in Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang’s hearts grow stronger and stronger.
But how could they not have expected that what had been concealed was revealed to Chen Dong by Zhang Lidong himself!
“Killing Zhang Lidong is good, but the big man behind him is the mastermind behind what happened to Chen Dong’s father-in-law and mother-in-law, if we don’t thoroughly probe into it, with Chen Dong’s current situation in the domain, one hair will have to move the whole body!”
Ye Yuanqiu’s gaze was deep, bright and uncertain, his right hand gently stroking his beard, the anger on his face fading away as he fell into deep thought.
In the courtyard, there was silence.
The cool breeze that rolled up from time to time was refreshing.
Yuan Yigang was also frowning sadly.
He and Ye Yuanqiu had deduced this matter many times, but finding out who was behind Zhang Lidong was undoubtedly the most secure way.
As the leader of the Hong Society, he had come this far, so he was a man of great ability and courage.
Now Chen Dong is in a dangerous situation in the domain, one wrong step and he will fall into the abyss.
The Hong Society has long been tied to Chen Dong.
He would never want the Hong Society and Chen Dong to take a desperate step unless it was necessary.
Originally, what he and Ye Yuanqiu decided was that even if they couldn’t find out in the end, they had to get Chen Dong to set up the domain before telling Chen Dong what happened.
But now …… the paper can’t hold the fire!
“Yi Gang, Gu Guohua couple’s location, scouted out?”
Ye Yuanqiu suddenly raised his head and looked towards Yuan Yigang.
Yuan Yigang’s pupils shrank and he smiled bitterly, “There are no clues.”
Four simple words, but heavy and helpless.
Ye Yuanqiu lightly stroked his beard: “Tell the 3,600 Hong Society to temporarily give up on finding out information about the person behind Zhang Lidong and fully investigate the location of Gu Guohua and his wife.
Forcing Zhang Lidong to death?
Yuan Yigang’s eyes shot up in astonishment, “Elder Zu, this is too dangerous a move! Forcing Zhang Lidong to die is a small matter, but if he is involved with the one behind him, there will be a big problem.
“If we don’t force Zhang Lidong to die, how can we find Gu Guohua and his wife?”
Ye Yuanqiu’s eyes shrewdly erupted with determination and ruthlessness: “That boy Chen Dong is too sentimental and less cold-blooded, he is now in this position, since he already knows about Gu Guohua and his wife, once he allows Zhang Lidong to continue to pop up other news outside, I am worried that in the end Chen Dong may throw in the towel and cause the entire chessboard to completely collapse!”
After a pause, Ye Yuanqiu let out a long breath, “Without taking a risky move and finding Gu Guohua and his wife in advance, what do you think Chen Dong …… will choose when it really comes to that juncture?”
The first thing you need to do is to get a good idea of what you want to do.
What would Chen Dong choose?
He didn’t even need to think about it!
From what he knew about Chen Dong, when it really came to that, in Chen Dong’s mind, instead of doing multiple choice questions, there would only be one answer!
Yuan Yigang nasal cavity let out a heavy out-breath sound: “Then I will temporarily conceal Chen Dong first, wait until Zhang Lidong returns, then directly on it, in addition to the distant Yang Lidong, I want to first pour all my efforts to search and wash it all.”
“That’s fine, in addition send two red rods to the domain to keep an eye on Zhang Lidong at all times, once his mouth is not strict, the red rods can kill him first and then strike later!”
Ye Yuanqiu made a quick decision, his gaze flickered for a moment before he suddenly said, “This matter, must not be revealed to Linglong by half, you know that silly girl!”
“As ordered, Ancestor.”
Yuan Yigang clasped his fist to receive the order.
Ye Yuanqiu watched Yuan Yigang leave and took out the chart book of the Nine Heavens Frightening Dragon Technique from his arms, flipping through it page by page.
“All waiting for this opportunity, purple qi covering the sky, the heritage reappears, my generation will eventually come out of the woodwork if I don’t die, naive …… too many people who covet it, naive ah ……”
With the dawn.
Everything that happened in the Four Seals Clubhouse last night was like a tsunami earthquake that swept across the entire southwest region.
Public opinion still existed, but secretly, it was a piece of land that was put up for auction without a second thought.
In the Four Seals Club, Chen Dong was as humble as dust, like a dog in distress, completely destroying the confidence of all the magnificent family heads and giants of power present in the South West Region.
Speculation had come true, and if the land was not sold soon, the losses would be even greater!
And as this block of land was put up for auction, the entire southwest region was thrown into an earthquake.
The people were unaware of the situation, but the world’s powers with their eyes on the southwest region had already learned the truth.
Those giants who were still waiting on the sidelines had also given up their last chance and followed suit.
One after another, plots of land were put up for auction.
This has led to an avalanche of land prices in the south-west region falling at an alarming rate.
And this has not stopped the giants and giants from continuing to put up their sites.
Prices have fallen because there is too much land, but if they don’t sell soon, they will only lose more!
The world is bustling with people who come and go for profit.
No one dares to keep their fingers crossed, and if they do, it will be a very small percentage of the world’s forces that have converged on the South West!
They had gathered in the southwest region and had come straight for Chen Dong.
What they wanted was to have a piece of the pie when Chen Dong and Rothschild were developing the southwest region.
Now that Chen Dong is no longer able to do so, the pie is no longer there.
By the time Chen Dong arrived, it was already close to noon.
A crowd of employees, led by Xiao Ma and others in a placating manner, were still busy and frenzied, but the air of decadence interspersed among the crowd was clearly discernible.
Chen Dong did not care, this was the inevitable mood of the staff in the immediate situation.
To be able to carry out work was already the best state of affairs.
He walked straight into the office.
Elder Long and Zhuge Qing were sweating profusely as they looked at the computer screen.
Even with the air conditioning on, it was of no help to the two.
Seeing Chen Dong.
Zhuge Qing hurriedly got up and said in fear, “Brother Dong, in one morning, a total of over three hundred plots of land have been listed in the entire southwest region, and the land prices are collapsing!”
“It’s normal for more than three hundred pieces to be listed in a few hours, so it’s normal for them to collapse.”
Chen Dong laughed teasingly and took out a drawing from his pocket, placing it on his desk and knocking on it, “Does Elder Long still remember the blueprint of the plot of land I showed you to auction out before? This plan is still the same as the last one, but the plan now is that when the land price drops to the freezing point, Dingtai and all your forces, in accordance with the blueprint plan, will make an all-out acquisition, even if it’s in other people’s hands, you have to find a way to gouge it out!”
Elder Long and Zhuge Qing were both startled at the same time, staring at the blueprint on the table with round eyes.
