Winner Takes All Chapter 219-220

Chapter 219

The Qin family, which had been quiet for a few days, was so oppressive that even the air was depressing.

Everyone in the Qin family was like a lump in their throat, trembling with fear.

Even when they walked, they kept their heads down and hurried along.

Everyone knew that the head of the family was on the verge of a violent rage these days.

But today, the head of the family, who had locked himself up in his room for several days, finally came out.

He was smiling and happy, and there was no trace of his anger.

As soon as the Qin family head walked out of his room, he ordered the first members of his clan to go out together.

An hour later, Xishu Airport.

A dozen luxury cars drove into the airport runway unhindered, lined up and parked at the edge of the runway.

The head of the Qin family quickly got out of the car and led all the Qin family members, running towards the plane that was parked at the end of the runway.

“Greetings to Old Madam Chen!”

With the Qin family head clasping his fist in salute.

“Greetings to Old Madam Chen!”

The crowd of Qin family members clasped their fists and bowed at the same time in a loud voice.

The cabin door opened.

Old Madam Chen slowly stepped off the plane.

Sweeping a glance at the Qin family members, she smiled blandly, “Please excuse yourself.”

“Old Madam Chen, everything has been arranged, please rest a lot after all the running along the way.” The head of the Qin family was full of smiles.

In Western Shu, the Qin family was the richest.

The richest man in the world, high in the clouds overlooking all life, had to meekly fall into the mortal world and bow his head in a heap of smiles when facing the Chen family.

“The Qin family has been in an eventful period recently.”

Old Mrs. Chen laughed as she joked.

The Qin family head’s smile faltered and he sighed helplessly, “A rebellious son in the family, it is indeed a family misfortune.”

“Since he is a rebellious son, he should be dealt with as soon as possible to set an example and to warn the clan not to follow suit.”

Old Mrs. Chen was light-hearted, but there was a coldness in her eyes: “I have heard a little about the Qin family head’s ability to rule the family.

The Qin family head smiled helplessly, “Old Madam is very perceptive, it was indeed Chen Dong who stirred up trouble this time.”

From the beginning to the end, he did not show too much surprise.

The Chen family’s energy was such that if they really wanted to investigate, they would be able to find out what was going on in the end.

What’s more, the Qin family head was well aware of Chen Dong’s situation in the Chen family.

“Let’s go, the old body has come precisely for this matter this time, and will give the Qin family an explanation.” The coldness between Old Lady Chen’s eyebrows intensified.

The Qin family head was instantly overjoyed, the few days of silence were precisely because he was afraid of the Chen family, so he did not make any rash moves.

Now that Old Madam Chen had personally descended and made her stance clear, this was undoubtedly a shot in the arm for the Qin family head.

This was a deadly revenge!

The Qin family’s face and its status as the richest man in Western Shu were at stake, so if they failed to strike thunderously, the consequences would be the same as those of the Li family in Kyoto!

The two men laughed and talked as they walked towards the caravan.

Behind them, a group of Qin family members and Chen family members followed respectfully.

……

On the other hand.

After returning to the company, Chen Dong was soon called out by Gu Qingying’s phone call.

Seeing Gu Qingying, Chen Dong asked, “What’s wrong? So anxious in the middle of the day.”

Gu Qingying smiled sweetly, “My parents are coming back.”

Chen Dong was stunned.

The last time Gu Qingying’s parents had left, it was to go to the Chen family.

With this relationship of his in place, it must be that Gu Guohua had successfully knocked on the Chen family’s door this time.

“When is it? I can make some arrangements.” Chen Dong asked.

“Just this evening.”

Gu Qingying said, “You are so busy, I will make the arrangements, my parents they will not stay long, they will leave tomorrow, this time they are here, mainly because they want to ……”

Speaking of this, Gu Qingying’s pretty face was slightly red and somewhat shy.

“What?” Chen Dong was bewildered.

“You’ve even proposed to me na.” Gu Qingying’s voice was as thin as a mosquito’s whisper.

A definite wedding date?

Chen Dong was instantly dumbfounded.

Since he had already proposed, the matter of marriage should indeed be on the agenda.

Rubbing his nose, Chen Dong smiled and said, “I understand, it’s just as well to discuss the bride price with uncle and aunt tonight.”

For a magnate, there were three matchmakers and six bridegrooms, and the rules and etiquette were strict.

Since the wedding date was to be set, the proper etiquette had to be done.

On this matter, Chen Dong did not want to be ambiguous.

If he did, then he would have to feel guilty about Gu Qingying for the rest of his life.

“Then I’ll go and make the arrangements. The place is still set at Uncle Meng’s Four Seals Club.”

Gu Qingying stood on tiptoe and gave Chen Dong’s cheek a light nod.

With that, she left happily.

Chen Dong watched Gu Qingying off, feeling the residual warmth on his cheek.

In a trance, he was actually a little nervous.

Whether it was when he established a relationship with Gu Qingying or at the marriage proposal scene.

He had never felt this way before.

Even though this was already his second marriage, the thought of being with Gu Qingying still made him a little nervous and helpless.

He took a deep breath.

Chen Dong shook his head and smiled to himself, “What’s the point of being nervous? Qing Ying has already given me her whole life, I’m still nervous, what’s the point?”

……

It was six o’clock in the evening.

Chen Dong left work and Long Lao was already waiting at the roadside in his Rolls Royce with Li Lan.

After getting into the car, the car drove directly towards the Four Seals Club.

On the way, the atmosphere was warm and welcoming.

What even left Chen Dong speechless was that Li Lan had already started discussing with Elder Long what the name of his and Gu Qingying’s child would be in the future.

Chen Dong couldn’t bear to listen anymore: “Mom, this is just discussing marriage, and you are already thinking about the name of my child, isn’t it too anxious?”

“Silly boy, that’s called being in a hurry, isn’t it? Think about it early so that you won’t be at a loss when the time comes.” Li Lan gave a scornful glance.

Chen Dong was speechless for a while.

With his mother’s tone, he dared to think that having a child was just a matter of closing and opening his eyes and popping out?

But he could also understand his mother’s feelings.

He had been married to Wang Nan Nan for three years.

Because of his mother’s condition, the Wang family had not seldom thrown in the towel, and even his mother had put up with it.

As for holding a grandchild, that was even more of a luxury.

The Wang family had even wanted Chen Dong to move into the Wang family numerous times, so that the child born in the future would also be surnamed Wang, as if he was a son-in-law.

Chen Dong was naturally unwilling to do so, as his mother insisted that he would not budge on this matter.

Because of this, Wang Nan Nan has not agreed to have a child with Chen Dong for three years.

Now that the clouds have opened and the moon is shining, the family is getting better and better.

And Gu Qingying, no matter how filial she is to her mother, or how considerate she is to him, she is unfailingly considerate.

It was strange that his mother would not be happy with such a marriage.

The Rolls Royce drove into the Four Seals Clubhouse.

After getting out of the car, the three of them went straight towards the Bamboo Grove courtyard.

And at that moment, inside the bamboo forest courtyard, there was already laughter.

“Old Gu ah, this time it’s not a bad trip after all, is it?”

Lord Meng talked and laughed.

Gu Guohua was glowing with happiness: “It was a worthwhile trip, it was a worthwhile trip! It’s finally worthy of all the hard work and effort I’ve put in over the years!”

With Chen Dong as his connection.

When he went to the Chen family this time, he was greeted with a very high level of courtesy.

The Chen family head personally went out to greet him and called him “in-laws”, which made Gu Guohua’s heart burst with joy.

As for the cooperation, Chen Daolin did not hesitate at all and agreed to it.

The terms offered even made Gu Guohua’s heart leap with fear.

“Dragon son-in-law, Dong’er is truly my Gu family’s dragon son-in-law!”

Gu Guohua secretly praised in his heart, and in a state of ecstasy, he said to Lord Meng with an air of caution, “Old Meng, I’m not afraid of your jokes, I came back this time because I want to have the two children consummated as soon as possible, otherwise this heart of mine ah, always feels mysterious.”

Li Wanqing, who was looking helplessly at the side, shook her head and laughed lightly.

“Afraid of running away?” Lord Meng said with a raised eyebrow.

Gu Guohua nodded seriously.

 

Chapter 220

A word.

It made Gu Qingying, who was silent with her head bowed, blush scarlet.

She shyly glared at Gu Guohua, “Dad, you, what are you saying?”

Gu Guohua was stunned and laughed: “Ai yo yo, daughter is now lecturing daddy, don’t be angry, mommy and daddy are not snobs, but you and Chen Dong are in love with each other and have proposed, you are not young anymore, so you should do it quickly.”

Gu Qingying’s face blushed but she did not retort.

She knew that her father did have a fear that Chen Dong would run away, but it definitely did not occupy much.

More, as her father had said, was that both of them were not too young.

Graduating from university and waiting for three years in agony.

Now that they have kept the clouds and seen the moon, it is really time to do it as soon as possible.

If her parents were really snobbish, I’m afraid that when they found out, they wouldn’t even have come over, but would have just made a phone call and sternly ordered her to break up with Chen Dong and beat the couple to death.

When Chen Dong walked into the small bamboo courtyard with his mother and Elder Long.

Gu Qingying hurriedly brought her parents and Lord Meng along to the door to greet them.

The atmosphere between the two parties was warm and joyful.

Chen Dong and Gu Qingying followed closely behind their parents, smiling happily.

However, Chen Dong was a little bitter inside.

How could he not have hoped to see such a scene at one time?

But after all his efforts, all he got in the end was a dog’s eye.

Now, a change of beauty, but a change of scenery.

Perhaps, from the moment his heart belonged to Wang Nan Nan, it was destined to be a fruitless and sinful relationship.

Chen Dong took a deep breath and allowed himself to suppress this past.

After taking his seat.

Lord Meng had the dishes brought to the table.

At the table, there was a joyful and warm atmosphere.

After three rounds of wine, the dishes passed five tastes.

Finally, it was time to get down to business.

“Dong’er, in fact, this time my aunt and I folded back here, one of which is to thank you.”

Gu Guohua’s cheeks were drunkenly red, but he said with a serious face, “It is because of you that uncle has achieved his long-cherished wish for many years.”

“Uncle, you are too kind.”

Chen Dong smiled in response, knowing that Gu Guohua was talking about entering the Chen family.

Following closely, Gu Guohua spoke again.

“Secondly, Uncle and Auntie also want to inquire about you and Xiaoying, when will you consummate your marriage? You both are not young, since it is confirmed, you should do it as soon as possible.”

“We parents are not young either, we are all looking forward to having grandchildren.”

With a single word, several people at the table laughed.

“Yes, yes, in-laws, I think so too.”

As if she had found her soulmate, Li Lan agreed with a smile, “If you want me to say so, the sooner Dong’er and Xiaoying get married, the better.”

“Dad.”

“Mom.”

Gu Qingying and Chen Dong couldn’t help but open their mouths at the same time.

Gu Guohua laughed and said to Li Lan, “In-laws mother, I see the two children are young and shy, it’s not good to talk about this, why don’t we both just finalise it?”

“How about the 15th of next month?”

Li Lan suggested.

Gu Guohua and Li Wanqing glanced at each other and nodded their heads.

Chen Dong was a little stunned, “Wouldn’t that be too soon?”

He had already thought about when the wedding date would be set, but he did not expect that his parents would set it for next month in a few words between them.

This was less than a month’s time, and many things had yet to be prepared.

“Yes, there are wedding photos, a place to hold the wedding, so much to prepare.” Gu Qingying also spoke up and agreed.

“You two kids shouldn’t worry too much, you should do what you need to do, and we’ll do the rest, choosing the hotel and inviting the guests.”

Li Lan said seriously, gesturing to Long Lao, “We can’t be too busy, there’s still Long Lao to help out with the preparations.”

“Young master, madam is right.” Long Lao smiled and nodded.

There was just no point in talking about this!

Chen Dong was helpless for a while, and after glancing at Gu Qingying, he could only nod his head and agree.

Then, he looked at Gu Guohua and Li Wanqing, “Uncle and aunt, in terms of the bride price ……”

“Didn’t you give it already?” Li Wanqing smiled gently, “Could it be that the meeting gift you kid gave last time can’t be considered a bride price?”

Chen Dong’s expression choked.

He said, “That was just a meeting gift, of course it doesn’t count as a bride price.”

“You child, if we say it’s a bride price, it’s a bride price.”

Gu Guohua said solemnly, “Besides, because of you, I have fulfilled my long-cherished wish for many years, so this is already the biggest bride price.”

“But ……”

Chen Dong still wanted to argue, three matches and six engagements, this was his heart for Gu Qingying.

When he was at his poorest, Gu Qingying, who had waited for him for three years, had returned to him without repercussions.

Even before he knew his background, he had already decided to be with him.

Gu Qingying had gambled her whole life, and he did not want to let her lose.

What’s more, he didn’t want a few more hints of settling on his wedding with Gu Qingying.

“Dong’er, auntie and uncle both know how much you think of Xiaoying.”

Li Wanqing smiled gently and looked at Gu Qingying, “Auntie and uncle only have such a daughter as Xiaoying, of course we have to spoil her, and we also hope more than anything that our daughter will marry a good man and be happy for the rest of her life.”

“The so-called bride price is your heart, but we have already seen your heart for Xiaoying, as long as you can make Xiaoying happy for the rest of her life, we as parents will be satisfied.”

“But then, it’s too much for Xiaoying, everyone else has a bride price, Xiaoying must have one too.” Chen Dong was obsessed.

Li Lan also felt a little aggrieved by Gu Qingying and said, “In-laws, we really need a bride price, it’s not easy for Dong’er and Xiaoying to come this far, since they are getting married, they should get married in a big way.

A word that made Gu Qingying and Gu Guohua’s couple’s hearts feel warm.

When it comes to weddings and marriages, most people in ordinary families would be red-faced because of the dowry.

Even if the two families were rich and powerful and did not lack money, but to be able to say something to this extent, it was already extremely important to Gu Qingying.

The bride price, it was an attitude!

“Cough cough, I am at least Xiao Ying’s uncle, in this matter, I should be able to say a few words, right?”

Seeing that the atmosphere was stagnant, Lord Meng got up and held his wine, and toasted Li Lan and Chen Dong: “Chen Dong, it’s enough that you have this heart, where are the two old Gu’s, and the words are clear, as long as you make Xiao Ying happy, this is the best bride price.”

“Don’t think it’s easy to be happy, but it’s hard to be happy for a lifetime, this bride price is not light at all!”

“I’ll leave it here as an uncle, if you make Xiao Ying unhappy in the future, don’t blame old Gu and I for cleaning you up.”

A timely joke eased the stalemate at the table.

Chen Dong rose and lifted his glass of wine.

“Thank you, Uncle and Auntie, I will do my best and won’t let you and Xiaoying down.”

Gu Qingying also stood up, holding her glass of wine, and said with a smile, “Thank you, Mom and Dad.”

“That’s the right thing to do! It’s settled, on the 15th of next month, get married!”

Gu Guohua rose with a smile, and the crowd echoed, drinking from their cups in one go.
