A muttered lament.
It was full of pity and pain.
This caused Chen Dong to be somewhat baffled, and it was even more difficult to understand Jiang Qilin’s change in mood.
“Mr. Chen …… do you believe that there are immortals in this world?”
Jiang Qilin closed his eyes, his expression still compa*sionate, and spoke slowly.
Chen Dong was stunned and smiled sarcastically, “The education I have received since I was a child does not allow me to believe that this world is that light and strange.”
Jiang Qilin slowly opened his eyes, a pale golden glow lingering in his eyes as he looked towards Chen Dong.
The four eyes met.
Chen Dong’s sweat suddenly stood on end, and a strong heart palpitations arose.
The look in Jiang Qilin’s eyes made him feel like he was facing the ancient starry sky, and the feeling of being withered and alone made his heart and soul tremble.
“But what if there are immortals in the world?”
Jiang Qilin pulled up the corner of his mouth and gave a quirky smile.
Chen Dong’s heart contracted fiercely, and quietly, his hands clenched into fists, lost in thought.
As if Jiang Qilin did not notice Chen Dong’s difference, said: “You see Pan Gu opened the sky, Nuwa created man, the three emperors set the country, the five emperors opened the frontier, ancient mythology, the Shan Hai Jing, folklore, ancient poetry inheritance …… Why are there gods and immortals, but by now, they are gone? ”
Xu Xu murmured sound, coupled with Jiang Qilin’s state at the moment, giving people an extremely powerful sense of oppression.
Even Chen Dong, for his part, fell into contemplation at these enquiries.
Jiang Qilin’s every word seemed to be sharp needles, piercing his eardrums.
He did not believe that there were immortals in the world, but it was Jiang Qilin’s enquiry that left him irrefutable.
Ancient myths, spectacular as they are, started the human race.
Pan Gu opened the heavens, Nuwa created man, the Three Emperors and Five Emperors, all of which have been pa*sed down to this day.
And in the Shanhaijing it is even more glorious.
There are also all kinds of folk legends, ancient poems and novels, all of them.
Chen Dong had been interested in these for a while during his junior high school days, and had even spent some time immersed in the Shanhaijing, and at that time he was also tsk-tsk-tsk-tsk and fascinated by everything in the Shanhaijing.
It was just clear to him that it was all just a virtual fabrication, a mere bubble.
But now …… being questioned by Jiang Qilin in this way, he suddenly had some doubts.
Could there really be immortals in this world ……?
“Sorry, I can’t answer your question.”
Chen Dong shook his head and said with some loss.
“The Three Emperors, the Five Emperors, the Xia, Shang and Zhou, and the Feng Shen Pang …… are all untalkable, so how do you explain these folklore miscellanies and legends such as Xu Fu seeking immortality, Zhuge Kongming renewing his life with the Seven Star Lamp, Wei Zheng dreaming of beheading the dragon, and Yao Guangxiao capturing the dragon ……? ”
Jiang Qilin guffawed and asked again.
Chen Dong was completely dumbfounded, these were all legends that he had heard and seen in detail since he was a child.
On the contrary, in this situation, he was asked a question by Jiang Qilin.
He suddenly felt at a loss for words, too confused to respond.
As he stared at Jiang Qilin, the ethereal and ethereal aura made Chen Dong lose his mind in fear.
There was silence around him.
After Jiang Qilin asked the question, he did not say anything more, as if he was waiting for Chen Dong’s answer.
Chen Dong, however, did not know how to answer.
The night breeze was slightly cool.
There was a long time of silence.
Chen Dong rubbed his nose, moved his eyes to the position of Jiang Qilin’s chest, avoided the oppressive feeling and smiled teasingly.
“You are trying to say that you are not a legacy of martial training, but a divine legacy, right?”
Jiang Qilin’s gaze flickered for a moment, and suddenly his aura changed drastically as the glittering light dissipated.
He laughed out loud, “Hahahaha …… joking with Mr. Chen, in fact, we are all the same kind of people, no need to take it seriously.”
While saying that, he also raised his hand and patted Chen Dong’s shoulder.
Chen Dong then laughed, that ethereal ethereal feeling disappeared, but his smile was still somewhat forced, a leathery smile.
I don’t know what happened.
Something that clearly felt impossible to exist.
Yet he felt that Jiang Qilin’s words just now were so false and real that they seemed to exist as if they were true!
“Mr. Chen, I have an unpleasant request!”
Jiang Qilin turned his words around, “When Mr. Chen trains every day, can you join Qilin? My grandfather, father and the elders have taught me that if I don’t advance in martial arts, I will fall back.
“What kind of ungrateful request is that?”
Chen Dong deflated and gave Jiang Qilin a white look, “You can naturally join me if you want to.”
Jiang Qilin smiled awkwardly, “Sorry, it’s really because I used to retreat alone and train alone, so I feel a little presumptuous about this.”
The day after that.
In the morning and evening time, Chen Dong had specially vacated his training time to train with Jiang Qilin.
However, what surprised Chen Dong a little was that Jiang Qilin’s training style was very different from his.
There was no systematic training, nor were there any wide open stances.
Jiang Qilin’s movements even gave Chen Dong the feeling of …… fooling around!
He had seen the way the grandparents in the park worked out and practiced Tai Chi, and when it fell on Jiang Qilin, it simply overlapped perfectly.
Such training …… really works?
Astonished as he was, Chen Dong did not ask.
Everyone has a training style that suits everyone, and the best is always the one that suits you best.
In contrast to the tranquility and peace within the Tianmen Mountain villa area.
Time has pa*sed, but the outside world, the southwest region to be precise, has become more and more intense and flooded.
Public opinion was building up and fermenting.
It has reached a stage where it is difficult to suppress.
The curses and grievances are overwhelming.
The giants and giants of the world who have converged on the southwest region have already been frazzled, unable to sleep at night.
The collapse of the south-western region has led to the fact that even if they were to sell their land at auction in time, no one would take them up.
All the plots of land are in an awkward position of having a price but not a market.
However, land prices and property prices are collapsing at a terrifying rate.
In such a situation, every day that the land is in hand means that every second of that day, the land is suffering horrific losses in a state of collapse!
In the blink of an eye.
The time came on the 10th of May.
Early in the morning.
Chen Dong was dressed in a suit and arrived at Dingtai Company.
The company staff were busy as usual, but the atmosphere of tension and trepidation that pervaded the staff could be felt clearly even when they walked through the corridor.
When Chen Dong settled into his office, about ten minutes later.
Elder Long, Zhuge Qing, Chu Reed, Zhou Yanqiu, Zhou Zunlong and Jiang Qilin, then walked into the office together.
Chen Dong was focusing on the plot quotes displayed on the computer screen, flicking the mouse.
Only after seeing everyone come in did he turn his attention to them.
Not too many words were spoken.
Chen Dong smiled a bitter smile and said coldly, “Senior hunters usually appear as prey and only shake when the prey gets close, so …… everyone, wake up, hunting time!”
The moment of the hunt?
Elder Long, Zhuge Qing, Chu Reed, Zhou Yanqiu and Zhou Zun Long, all had their hearts and souls lifted.
They …… had been waiting for this day for a long time!
From the day Chen Dong decided to sell the land, they had been under monstrous pressure all the time.
Not only do they have to constantly face a situation that could collapse at any time, but they also have to endure the scolding of public opinion at all times.
Physical, mental, double damage!
Now they have finally been able to vent their anger and see the light of day.
Long Lao raised his eyebrows and hesitantly said, “Young master, there are still nine days until the 19th of May as you planned, is it too early for us to start harvesting the land right now?”
From the day he got the planning blueprint, it was clear to him that the whole plan would eventually come to this moment now.
But …… Long Lao knew better than that, this harvest must be done quickly and with the force of thunder.
Nine days is too long, and no one can be sure exactly what variables will appear in it!
“No matter, in nine days, no more variables will appear.”
Chen Dong smiled faintly, his eyebrows revealing an unparalleled confidence, “During this period of time, all the forces are frantically dumping land to stop losses, they have long been dizzy, and because of those previous incidents, they all think that I am completely finished, and the attention on us has greatly decayed, we are only harvesting a small portion of the land according to the blueprint, even if they react, Even if they reacted, we’d have already sealed the deal!”
Long Lao frowned and pondered for a moment, before his doubts faded away.
Chen Dong lifted his hands and gently patted them.
“Gentlemen, this battle, whether it is a success or a failure, depends on how you all perform on the Harvesting Battlefield during these nine days!”
Zhuge Qing, Chu Reed and the others all revealed overpoweringly confident smiles.
Only Elder Long was still frowning.
As he grew old, he had seen all the red dust of the world, and his mind had become more mature and serious.
His perspective on things was more comprehensive and thorough than that of the people present.
Now the situation was developing towards what Chen Dong expected, but Elder Long still caught a very crucial point in this plot.
That was the …… development!
This was something that he and Zhuge Qing had been considering when Chen Dong had revealed the blueprint to him and Zhuge Qing earlier.
It was just that compared to Zhuge Qing’s youthful naivety, Elder Long was still worried even now.
It was true that this plot could create a major base camp in one fell swoop.
But the key was that the world’s giants and power giants could not stand by and watch Chen Dong swallow all the benefits in his stomach.
Once the plan succeeds, the giants and giants will see that there is no profit to be made and will probably end up putting all the land in the southwest region in their hands and hoarding it, waiting for a successor to appear.
But this will also lead to a large area of vacant land in the southwest region that cannot be developed, and it will be difficult to develop the southwest region.
Worried as he was, Elder Long did not raise his objection in public.
The business world is like a battlefield.
When fighting on the battlefield, if one drum is used, two will fail and three will be exhausted.
Now that Zhuge Qing and the others were all in high spirits, it was most appropriate for them to enter the mall in such a state.
Once he raises his objection, it will become a thorn in their side and they will inevitably act with forethought, increasing the chances of something going wrong.
After Zhuge Qing, Chu Reed and the others left the office.
Only then did Elder Long ask: “Young master, the way to clean up the mess, have you really thought it through?”
The tone of his voice was heavy and dense with worry.
Their aim was to promote the development of the entire southwest region in one fell swoop while building the new Chen family, only then could the new Chen family’s waters rise.
With the whole situation at stake, Elder Long did not dare not ask!
Chen Dong leaned back in his chair, gazing at Elder Long with a determined expression, “Xiao Qian, will definitely be able to complete her mission, she will not let us down!”
Qin Xiao Qian?
Long Lao was stunned and lost in thought, with some surprise in his eyes.
He hadn’t seen Qin Xiao Qian for a long time.
Qin Xiao Qian had left very suddenly, and had hidden the situation from everyone, except Chen Dong.
But when they had asked Chen Dong about Qin Xiao Qian’s whereabouts, Chen Dong had always been secretive and avoided talking about it.
“What has Xiao Qian gone to do?”
Elder Long asked curiously.
“Do something, Elder Long.”
Chen Dong said calmly, his eyes bright as stars, “Xiao Qian holds the lifeline of the whole situation, as long as she succeeds, then your worries will vanish.”
After a pause, Chen Dong smiled brightly, “Judging from the current reaction to the situation, Xiao Qian should have already succeeded!”
Elder Long: “???”
After a moment’s hesitation, Elder Long smiled helplessly and sighed, “The speed at which Young Master has grown up is increasingly surprising to the old slave!”
After saying that, he turned around and left.
He still had to lead the Dingtai Company and secretly reap the rewards of the other plots!
Inside the office.
Chen Dong smiled blandly, “In nine more days, I will be unstoppable again when I cast New Chen!”
The trend of selling off listed land in the southwestern region did not have the slightest tendency to be curbed.
Every day at dawn, a large amount of land was again put up for sale at auction.
The declining trend shown by Chen Dong moved the entire southwest region.
It was not only the magnates and giants who were terrified and disoriented.
In the private sector, there was even more panic and sleepless nights.
The collapse of land and property prices may be a mere loss of investment for the gentry or giants.
But for the ordinary people, it is undoubtedly a tumble in the sky.
Such fear and anxiety seemed to dominate the whole of the southwest region, haunting it.
It was precisely in the midst of such panic and anxiety, which was almost frantic.
In the land market, however, several forces have quietly emerged to buy against the trend.
Compared to the market situation in the entire southwest region, the sudden emergence of these counter-trend forces was inconspicuous.
After all, during this period of time, while everyone was selling like crazy, there were also people who were desperate enough to gamble on a wave of heavenly luck.
These few forces were none other than Zhuge Qing, Chu Reed and Zhou Yanqiu and Zhou Zunlong.
However, several people obeyed Chen Dong’s orders, and even if they acquired, they hid their identities and did so quietly in secret.
It was as if they were the Grim Reaper under the night, harvesting their targets bit by bit and perfecting the blueprint outlined by Chen Dong.
As several forces began to harvest, the owners of the acquired land, instead of being the least bit suspicious, felt as if they had been blessed by the heavens and were grateful.
Time pa*sed day by day.
Every day, Chen Dong would check the completed acquisition maps of several forces, and under this kind of brocade harvesting, his blueprint was being filled in rapidly.
In the blink of an eye.
It was the 17th of May.
It was early this morning.
Chen Dong, who was sleeping, was awakened by a sharp knock at the door.
Chen Dong frowned slightly and hurriedly checked on Gu Qingying to make sure that she was not frightened before he got up to open the door.
As soon as he opened the door.
Zhuge Qing, who was standing at the door, said in a panic, “Brother Dong, our land resumption matter has been exposed!”
