A cold voice, thick with teasing mockery.
In the silence, the aftermath was long and unbroken.
What …… will happen next?
Meng Qinghe’s face was pale, his eyes were full of blood and held tears.
In a trance of panic, he felt a hollow beneath his feet, and his whole body plunged towards the endless black abyss.
He had already been sentenced to life and death with a single word, so what was the point of guessing what would happen next?
The head of a magnificent family, the sea of business.
A single word from Gu Qingying had already taken the bottom out of the pot and completely eradicated the roots of his magnificent Meng family.
Meng Qinghe suddenly laughed, leaning forward and back, reckless laughter that echoed in the ears of everyone in the room.
At the same time as he laughed, the tears that were in his eyes were sliding down the corners of his eyes.
The sun was shining brightly.
But he could not feel the slightest warmth, there was only the coldness of a near-dead corpse.
Gu Qingying’s words were like a big hand that completely cut off everything from him, brutally and domineeringly pressing him directly into the abyss of death.
Accompanied by Meng Qinghe’s wanton laughter.
The heads of the powerful families and giants present bowed their heads or shifted their gaze to other places.
At this moment, the completion ceremony was no longer in doubt.
Even the people who had previously joined Meng Qinghe in his verbal attacks were now deliberately averting their gaze, looking indifferent, as if everything had nothing to do with them.
The fact that Gu Qing Ying’s sword pointed at Meng Qing He alone was already a “mercy” to them.
The eternal truth of “death to the poor, not death to your friends” was something that even these high and mighty family heads and giants followed to the letter, after they were not driven by profit.
“Elder Long, Family Head Meng is not feeling well, ask someone to take him down to rest!”
Gu Qingying held her large belly with one hand as she ordered with an indifferent expression.
Elder Long immediately asked someone to take away Meng Qinghe, who was laughing almost like a madman, on the spot.
In the whole room, there were no more ripples.
There was even a long breath of relief as Meng Qinghe left the scene.
Gu Qingying’s cold eyes swept across the room, “Does anyone else have any objections to today’s completion ceremony?”
Every word was as cold as frost.
In response to her, the whole room was silent.
One Meng Qinghe was already enough.
To be able to forcefully crush Meng Qinghe with such means in front of so many people in the audience was already enough to make people feel the attitude.
If he dared to say another word, he would end up like Meng Qinghe!
There was a few seconds of silence.
Gu Qing Ying nodded in satisfaction, “It seems that everyone agrees with Qing Ying’s words, thanks for the cooperation, from now on for a period of time, it will be me supervising the cooperation with everyone, I hope everyone will be more understanding to this pot-bellied woman of mine, I also hope everyone will cooperate happily!”
“Hahahaha …… Madam Chen is joking, in the future, everyone will have to look up to Madam Chen for the promotion of the development of the southwest region!”
In the crowd, a magnificent family head judged the situation and immediately responded to Gu Qingying with a big smile.
His eyebrows were open and his laughter was cheerful.
It seemed as if nothing had just happened.
On the other hand, on the stage of the ceremony, Fan Lu Zhuge Qing and the others had a deep frown on their faces.
When the crowd was verbally attacking Gu Qingying just now, although they did not stop them, they ruthlessly took the person who shouted the insults to heart.
This first family head of a powerful family who jumped out and echoed Gu Qingying was clearly one of those who had just gnashed their teeth and insulted Gu Qingying!
“He looks like a dog!”
Fan Lu clenched her fist and squeezed out a sentence from between her teeth.
Zhuge Qing beside him laughed disdainfully, “Yes, but a dog is no different from them, these people.”
As the first great family head spoke out to “express their loyalty”, a steady stream of great family heads and giants spoke out to express their fistful of loyalty.
The voices came together like a thunderclap, resonating throughout the room.
The journalists in the media camp, not far away, were already dumbfounded.
Some even rubbed their eyes fiercely in disbelief, fearing that they had lost their eyesight.
Were these …… really the usual high-flying giants? Giants?
“What should we do, are we still filming next?”
A reporter asked cautiously, “This report will definitely shock the world, but if anyone writes badly, I guess tomorrow their own media will be gone!”
Such a concern was not unreasonable.
The giants and powers that were able to be set up by Chen Dong in the southwest and whale away at the beginning were all existences that were able to straddle the international scene.
It’s still easy to put a media outlet out of business!
“How about …… not filming?”
A middle-aged reporter rubbed his hands: “I’ve seen all the big storms over the years, this scene today is just too sensational, it’s better to seek out explosions than stability.”
These words immediately led to nods from the surrounding peers.
Magnificent families and powers, dignity is paramount.
Some powerful family heads and giants of power would not hesitate to trade their lives for the so-called “dignity”.
In the current scene, the flattering faces of these powerful family heads and giants were no longer a loss of dignity, but a loss of their bottoms as a result of Gu Qingying’s crushing hand!
“Friends of the media, this is about the completion ceremony of the first phase of Eastern Wall Street, which my family husband Chen Dong attaches extra importance to, so please spare no effort to write a big story about it.”
Gu Qingying suddenly raised the microphone and looked towards the media camp.
As soon as the words were spoken.
The flattery that resounded throughout the room also gave a sudden lurch.
But it was only a pause, and then it resounded again.
With these words from Gu Qingying and the reaction of these magnate family heads and giants, the media reporters, who were all on tenterhooks, were immediately seething with enthusiasm and no longer had the slightest concern.
Under the flashing lights.
Gu Qingying smiled faintly, “Sorry everyone, Qingying is pregnant and it is inconvenient to work, the completion ceremony will be followed by the ribbon cutting ceremony with Elder Long and Rothschild and the others.”
As soon as the words fell, the sound of chairs being dragged resounded throughout the room.
All the family heads and giants rose in unison with smiles on their faces and respectful voices in unison.
“Greetings to Lady Chen!”
The sound echoed, deafening.
As Gu Qingying left, Elder Long and the others quickly entered the flow.
With the previous “hiccup”, the subsequent completion ceremony went exceptionally smoothly.
However, the ceremony was so grand that by the time it was all over, it was almost dark.
Inside the Four Seals Clubhouse.
The completion feast went ahead as planned.
The banquet halls, which are of the highest standard, were all lit up with laughter and lively people.
Outside the banquet hall.
Gu Qingying and Elder Long were standing side by side.
A gentle breeze was blowing.
Gu Qingying was holding her big belly as she looked out profoundly at the feast scene in several banquet halls.
Long Lao was likewise gazing at the feast scene in the banquet hall and could not help but smile teasingly.
“Young lady, with you showing up today, Southwest should be quiet for a while next, they want a spokesperson like you!”
“Whether it’s quiet or not is still up for debate.”
Gu Qingying’s eyes flickered for a moment and she smiled gently, “Before he returns, I will try my best to cooperate with your promotion and do a good job as a spokesperson.”
“It’s hard for the young madam, these flies and dogs, harbouring hatred, all they can catch is that no one can carry all the forces under the young master’s command, it’s just a superficial statement, but sometimes such a superficial statement can crush everything!”
Long Lao sighed gloomily and swept a worried glance at Gu Qingying’s stomach: “But now the young lady is standing on the cusp of the storm, in the future the young lady and the young master’s bloodline, I’m afraid ……”
Gu Qingying dryly and decisively said two words.
The completion ceremony came to a successful conclusion.
At the behest of Gu Qingying, the media immediately compiled their reports after they left.
However, the media did not report everything that happened at the completion ceremony in its entirety.
They wanted big news!
But not without brains!
Even if the news was enough to make the world lose its colour, they were not so reckless as to ignore the heads of powerful families and giants in the room.
Some of the key points and areas where the dignities of the great families and giants were at stake were censored.
Even so, when the news was reported, it instantly swept across the front pages of all major media.
Like a thunderclap, the world was silenced.
Across the ocean.
The Mountain River Club.
Ye Yuanqiu was sitting in front of his study with a sad face, sipping tea and pondering.
On the desk in front of him is a flat sheet of rice paper on which a few large characters are scribbled, but the strokes are a little skewed and unpleasant to the eye.
It is one of Ye Yuanqiu’s few hobbies.
After years of immersion, his calligraphy was not as good as that of the masters in the industry, but it was still unique.
But after returning to this side of the world, he was constantly worried about Ye Linglong, making it difficult for him to calm his mind.
When the mind is in turmoil, the brush is in turmoil.
Annoyed, Ye Yuanqiu grabbed the Xuan paper on the table, crumpled it into a ball and threw it into the trash, and was spreading it out, ready to wield it again.
“Elder Ancestor, Yigang requests to see you!”
Outside the door, Yuan Yigang’s voice rang out.
Ye Yuanqiu frowned and spoke quietly.
Yuan Yigang pushed the door and saw Ye Yuanqiu’s sad face, and his expression became even more complicated.
Such a change did not escape Ye Yuanqiu’s eyes.
Yuan Yigang put his left hand behind his back and gently pushed his gla*ses with his right hand, “Gu Qingying became Chen Zu Lao’s spokesperson and smoothly stabilised the situation, and the completion ceremony of the first phase of Eastern Wall Street was held smoothly.”
At the end of his sentence, his tone was extraordinarily low.
Such news had swept through the major media, newspapers, TV news, and even self-published media, all of which had formed an overwhelming trend.
But what really gripped Yuan Yigang’s heart was that it was now Gu Qingying who was standing on the cusp of the storm!
“This woman, old man has underestimated her!”
Ye Yuanqiu narrowed his eyes, amazed and emotional: “When Mr. Chen was around, she was not well-known, but now that something has happened to him, she has taken a thunderous stance and suppressed the situation in the southwest.
Chen Dong’s accident in Zhenjiang City had already swept through the world’s powerful families and forces.
The 3,600 clans of the Hong Society had already obtained the information at the first moment of Chen Dong’s accident.
It was only the word “Heavenly Punishment” that was revealed in the information that made both Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang feel desperate, and they pinned all their hopes on the Great Snow Dragon Riders.
The northern frontier was the domain of the Great Snow Dragon Riders.
If they could not find any trace of Chen Dong, the 3,600 clans of the Hong Society would never be able to gain anything, even if they poured all their strength into the Northern Frontier.
After all, this time, it was of a completely different nature from when Chen Dong was lost in the Great Snowy Plain!
This was why Ye Yuanqiu and Huo Zhenxiao had deliberated before deciding to wait and see what would happen.
Instead, they focused their attention on the southwestern region of the domain.
Once something happened to Chen Dong, the southwestern region would certainly not be peaceful.
The 3,600 clans of the Hong Society were always building up their strength, ready to run to the southwest of the domain to help Chen Dong’s parties.
Even when Gu Qingying returned to the domain, Ye Yuanqiu and Yuan Yigang did not think that the final spokesperson would fall to her.
A woman who was pregnant and about to give birth would most likely not make such a choice of standing on the cusp of the storm and exploding into great danger!
But Gu Qingying came forward!
And with a completion ceremony, she overwhelmed the whole audience!
Even though Yuan Yigang’s report was just a few words and did not reveal any details, Ye Yuanqiu could still imagine the dangerous scenes at the completion ceremony.
That was a hard stand in the middle of a dragon’s den!
Ye Yuanqiu lowered his eyebrows and lowered his eyes, exhaled a breath and smiled teasingly, “But her standing out is beyond my expectations, according to Mr. Chen’s layout, she should be the least qualified to stand out now, the one most qualified to be the spokesperson should be Linglong.”
Yuan Yigang’s face was as deep as water, his gaze bright and dark.
With a direct thud, he knelt down on one knee, “Please forgive me, Ancestor, Yigang has something to hide!”
Ye Yuanqiu’s face changed drastically and he stood up in a tentative manner, the seat behind him falling to the ground.
In a flash.
His eyes widened as he looked tigerishly at Yuan Yigang, his fists clenched tightly and pressed against the tabletop, his veins showing.
The two words exited, and the temperature of the entire study seemed to plummet to the freezing point.
The air, moreover, was so frozen that it was suffocating because of Ye Yuanqiu’s change in aura.
Yuan Yigang felt the oppressive feeling on Ye Yuanqiu’s body, and his sweat trembled as he said in a deep, mournful voice, “Soon after Chen Dong’s accident, Linglong disappeared from the Tianmen Mountain villa, and there was no news of her!”
The Hong Society’s three thousand six hundred sects had a worldwide intelligence network.
As Ye Linglong was in the domain, she received even more extra attention.
It was just that when Yuan Yigang got the information, he was also hesitant whether to tell Ye Yuanqiu or not.
After all, the two of them had just returned from the domain, and Ye Yuanqiu himself was already greatly agitated, so if he knew about Ye Linglong’s affairs again, whether he could bear it or not was still a matter of opinion.
Even, if Gu Qingying hadn’t shown up as a spokesperson, Yuan Yigang would have decided to continue to hide it and secretly mobilize the power of the 3,600 sects to find Ye Linglong.
But now …… paper can’t wrap up the fire!
“Dead girl, dead girl, dead girl ……”
Ye Yuanqiu gritted his teeth and cursed, his body was trembling, pressed on the case table under the two fists, inch by inch cracked, dense as a spider web.
The “click” sound of the table breaking echoed.
There was an explosion.
The table was so overwhelmed that it exploded!
“Is there no news at all?”
Ye Yuanqiu’s tiger eyes were wide open and covered in blood.
Yuan Yigang shook his head in dismay, a glint in his eyes, “But according to Linglong’s nature, I’m afraid she ……”
The words were not finished.
Ye Yuanqiu snapped, “Immediately contact Huo Zhenxiao of Zhenjiang City, and while the Great Snow Dragon Cavalry is searching for Mr. Chen, also investigate Linglong’s whereabouts at the same time!”
“As you command!”
Yuan Yigang bowed his head and received his orders.
Xiong Nu’s royal court.
The Thirteen Cities stood majestically amidst the wind and snow, their lights magnificent, as if they were thirteen stars, blossoming with the glory of the King’s Court alone in this icy sky and snow.
“Open the city gates!”
A loud roar.
Ye Linglong let out a cry, her eyelashes trembling lightly, and slowly opened her eyes.
Her body was in severe pain, like a knife cut, and her lips twitched in pain as she sucked in a cold breath.
But the roar that had just echoed in her ears, and the rumbling sound that was now being heard, made her not bother with her injuries, but rush to look around.
The towering walls of the city.
The blindingly magnificent lights.
The icy sky and the cold wind and snow.
The sturdy men in thick animal robes, armed with blades and looking different from those in the domain, came into view.
All this was as if a thunderbolt had blasted at Ye Linglong’s eyes.
In a flash.
Her soul was scared to death.
Everything around her made her understand her situation in a short moment!
Is God going to kill me?
Why am I here in the Huns’ court?
