Winner Takes All Chapter 281-282

Chapter 281

Only Qin Henian came to the Qin family.

Draped in mourning, Qin Henian’s eyes were red and swollen, his face full of grief.

Behind him also stood a lawyer who had long served the Qin family.

When Chen Tong and the others arrived, there were no unnecessary words and everything proceeded according to the steps.

With Chen Tong arranging for all the contracts to be signed, there were no worries either.

The Qin family was so large that it could be ranked as the richest man in Western Shu, with countless industries under its command.

Even signing the contracts one by one was not a small amount of work.

By the time all the equity division contracts were signed, it was already three o’clock in the morning.

Qin Henian slowly got up and bowed to Chen Dong in a disoriented manner.

“Mr. Chen, from now on, don’t worry, the Qin family will not have second thoughts about you.”

This was Elder Qin’s advice before he died.

Even if he had more resentment in his heart, Qin Henian was not stupid.

It was better to live under the hedge of others than to have the family destroyed.

Even if the glory was not there, even if it lingered on, the Qin family would still be there after all.

“Hm.”

Chen Dong indifferently responded.

“If there is nothing else, I will return to the Qin family first, my father still has a funeral to attend to.”

Qin Henian took the lawyer and the contract with him and left straight away.

“By the way!”

Chen Dong suddenly called out to Qin Henian: “From today onwards, the Qin family’s financial company is under Qin Ye’s management, so within a day, you will draw your Qin family out of the company.”

Qin Henian’s body shook and his steps stopped.

Rao Qin Ye was also surprised for a moment.

“Understood, Mr. Chen.” Qin Henian gritted his teeth and answered with a resentful gaze.

The Qin family, to be able to truly sit as the richest.

It was by relying on the finance company, or to be precise, by relying on Qin Ye’s ghostly ten billion dollar manipulation back then.

The other industries were the branches and leaves of the Qin family, the financial company was the main trunk of the Qin family.

After taking a deep breath, Qin Henian fought back the tears in his eyes and left with quick steps.

In the house, there was silence.

Qin Ye asked Chen Dong in shock, “Brother Dong, the Qin family’s financial company is a first-class giant in the financial world, are you really going to let me manage it?”

“What’s wrong with that? The Qin family’s financial company was originally set up because of your battle back then, now that it’s under your management, it’s a return to its rightful owner, right?”

Chen Dong smiled spontaneously and looked at Chen Tong, “Chen Tong, help me arrange a plane, we are returning.”

“Ah?!”

Chen Tong was surprised, “Young master, you’re leaving Western Shu so soon? Just now, Zhuge Qing called and wanted to invite you to the Zhuge family’s banquet tonight.”

“I won’t attend, their family banquet, how can it be as good as the food my wife cooks for me?”

Chen Dong got up and left.

Chen Tong was stunned and speechless, did the young master have some misunderstanding about family banquets ……?

A family feast is really not as simple as a meal!

Instinctively, Chen Tong wanted to speak up and persuade.

Put aside the fact that the Zhuge family is now pointing to the position of the richest man.

As the Consul General of the Chen Family Office in Western Shu, Chen Tong knew exactly what it meant that the Zhuge family was willing to invite Chen Dong to a family banquet.

With the Zhuge family’s arrogance, it would normally be difficult for even a powerful giant in Western Shu to be invited to a family banquet.

This was the greatest courtesy the Zhuge family could offer!

But, a large hand pressed on Chen Tong’s shoulder.

Kun Lun smiled and said, “In the young master’s eyes, the Zhuge Family’s family banquet is less than a bowl of vegetarian noodles for his wife, go and arrange it.”

Chen Tong was a little stifled, but left quickly to make the arrangements for the trip.

An hour later, Chen Tong and the others rushed to the airport to take a special plane for their return trip.

Tianmen Mountain Villa.

In the kitchen, the heat was on.

Elder Long was still at Din Tai dealing with various matters.

Knowing that Chen Dong was already on his way home, Gu Qingying thought of organising a table of food to wait for Chen Dong to come home.

“Xiaoying, it’s better for me to do it.”

Fan Lu looked at the busy Gu Qingying and wanted to help.

In her eyes, it was too difficult for Gu Qingying, who had grown up with a lot of clothes and food, to organize a large table of food.

What’s more, organising meals was her job.

Since Li Lan’s death, the only thing she could do at home was housework and three meals a day.

If she couldn’t even do these, Fan Lu even felt that she was somewhat dispensable in this family.

“It’s alright Sister Xiao Lu, I’ll definitely be able to do it well.”

Gu Qingying was dripping with fragrant sweat, but she didn’t even notice it, and while stirring the dishes in the pan, she said with a smile, “Da Fuzzy is too tired these days, I want to make a delicious meal for him to eat well, I’m his wife, it’s my responsibility to make sure he’s well fed.”

“Eat up?”

Fan Lu was stunned for a moment.

Gu Qingying, who was stir-frying in front of the wok, trembled and instantly sensed that there was something wrong with the taste of those words.

Her beautiful face flushed red and she gave Fan Lu an annoyed glance, “Aiya, Sister Lu, what are you thinking about?”

Fan Lu covered her mouth and snickered, “I should, I should.”

The more she said this, the more Gu Qingying’s pretty face was so ashamed that it was bleeding.

However, Gu Qingying soon changed the subject, “Say, Sister Lu, how far have you and Brother Kunlun progressed?”

Fan Lu hesitated for a moment and rubbed her chin, “I can’t tell, anyway, Brother Kunlun still won’t let me cook for him right now.”

Gu Qingying: “……”

She couldn’t stand it anymore, she had obviously digressed, how come Sister Xiao Lu even digressed back?

clang clang ……

The spatula tapped on the side of the pot, and Gu Qingying said, “Sister Xiaolu, help me turn the pot, I’ll cut another potato shreds.”

“You’re finally willing to let me help.” Fan Lu smiled as she went to the wok and skillfully stir-fried it.

Gu Qingying, on the other hand, was busy cutting shredded potatoes, thinking about the conversation she had with Fan Lu just now, but her blushing pretty face was outlined with a sweet smile.

Isn’t the best thing for a woman to do is to make sure her husband is well fed?

However, as soon as she was distracted, a sharp pain came from her fingertips.

Gu Qingying screamed, and the index finger of her left hand was already stained red with fresh blood.

“Little Shadow!”

Fan Lu was startled and hurriedly put down what she was doing and busied herself with bandaging Gu Qingying.

After working for half a day, Gu Qingying and Fan Lu had finally prepared a table full of delicious food.

Looking at the time, Gu Qingying reckoned that Chen Dong and the others should be landing soon.

She was busy saying to Fan Lu, “Sister Lu, you can’t say anything to Big Fool about me cutting my hand, or he’ll laugh at me again.”

“Mr. Chen probably can’t be more distressed.” Fan Lu nodded her head.

At that very moment.

Gu Qingying’s mobile phone suddenly rang.

It was the director of Lijin Hospital, Liu, calling.

Gu Qingying froze for a moment and picked up the phone, “Hello, Uncle Liu, what can I do for you?”

On the phone, Dean Liu’s voice was low and strong.

“Xiaoying, is Chen Dong there? I can’t reach him, you guys should come to the hospital soon.”

“What’s wrong?” Gu Qingying’s expression was frozen.

“Elder Long was injured by someone and is now in the hospital.”

Boom!

Gu Qingying was struck by lightning and her expression drifted off.

Wasn’t Elder Long …… handling affairs at Dingtai?

How could he be injured by someone?

Besides, there was still Lone Wolf in the company!

“Okay, I’ll be at the hospital right away.” Gu Qingying answered and hung up the phone.

 

Chapter 282

Lijin Hospital.

Inside the VIP ward.

Jing can listen to the needle.

The monitoring instruments emitted sounds in an orderly manner.

Gu Qingying covered her mouth with her jade hand and looked at Elder Long on the hospital bed with disbelief, her eyes instantly a little red.

Fan Lu, who was accompanying her, was also shocked and terrified.

At this moment, Elder Long was lying on his back on the bed, still unconscious.

On his back, there were streaks of stinging bruises all over, and some of them were even skinned and split open, incomparably hideous.

“Uncle Liu, what’s going on here?”

Gu Qingying took a deep breath and looked at Dean Liu.

While soothing, Dean Liu said, “Elder Long is no longer seriously injured, these injuries on his body are all caused by whipping, and the man outside who brought Elder Long to the hospital doesn’t know exactly who injured Elder Long.”

Whiplash?

Gu Qingying was pale.

Who on earth could lay such a heavy hand on an old man from Gu’ao?

“But the person who did it was also powerful, every inch of force was grasped with great precision, it wasn’t even aimed at Old Man Long’s life.” Dean Liu couldn’t help but sigh.

“Xiao Lu, you take care of Elder Long, I’ll go ask Lone Wolf.”

Gu Qingying turned around and walked out of the ward.

Elder Long was brought to Lijin Hospital by Lone Wolf, the reason why Dean Liu was the one who called was also because he was the only one who had time just now, and Lone Wolf was still busy pushing Elder Long to the resuscitation room.

Now that Chen Dong was not there, reason told Gu Qingying that he had to shoulder this responsibility.

Lone Wolf crouched by the corridor at the entrance in despair, his hands clutching his hair, incomparably guilty and blaming himself.

Seeing Gu Qingying, Lone Wolf hurriedly got up and said, “Miss Gu, it’s my fault, it’s my failure to protect Elder Long.”

“Now is not the time to pursue responsibility.”

Gu Qingying shook her head, “How exactly did something happen to Elder Long?”

Lone Wolf shook his head, “At noon, Elder Long told me that someone was looking for him and asked me not to follow, then he left alone.”

“After waiting for almost half an hour, Elder Long suddenly called and asked me to go to the hotel to take him to the hospital, and then it became like this.”

“The hotel?”

Gu Qingying’s eyebrows knitted together, could it be that Elder Long had “played” off?

It wasn’t her fault for thinking, but since Qin Ye had moved in next door, she had heard Chen Dong mention Qin Ye and Elder Long’s “hook-ups” a few times.

The old man’s body hides an unrestrained and unbridled heart that loves freedom.

But …… is this playing too hard to get?

 

Lone Wolf said helplessly, “When I arrived at the hotel, the first thing I did was to call up the surveillance, which showed a woman coming out of Long Lao’s room.”

Gu Qingying: “……”

She really caught herself a bit blind.

Hesitated for a moment.

She took out her phone and looked at the time, Chen Dong should have almost landed by this time.

It wasn’t good for her to handle this kind of thing as a girl.

Gu Qingying dialed the phone and told Chen Dong what had happened, asking him to come directly to the hospital.

……

When Chen Dong arrived at the hospital with Kunlun and Qin Ye and Qin Xiao Qian.

Gu Qingying and Lone Wolf hurriedly welcomed them.

“Where is Elder Long?”

Chen Dong’s face was sullen and somewhat sullen.

Back when he was in a desperate situation, it was Elder Long’s appearance that dragged him and his mother out of the darkness.

And after that, Elder Long was even more of a teacher and friend to him.

Now that something like this had happened, Chen Dong always had a fire pressed inside him.

“Still in a coma, but things are a bit troublesome, should be playing something wrong.” Gu Qingying’s willow brows knitted together.

“Play something wrong?” Chen Dong was stunned.

When Gu Qingying’s gaze glanced at Qin Ye, Chen Dong was instantly enlightened.

“Let’s go and see Elder Long first.”

Several people walked into the ward together.

When he saw Elder Long lying unconscious on the bed, Chen Dong’s pupils immediately tightened.

Qin Ye even exclaimed, “Crap! When did old man Long’s taste become so heavy?”

“Don’t talk nonsense!”

Chen Dong gave Qin Ye a sidelong glance.

Gu Qingying lowered her head and said noisily, “It was Lone Wolf who went to the hotel to bring Old Man Long to the hospital, and Lone Wolf first transferred the surveillance, and a woman walked out of Old Man Long’s room.”

Chen Dong: “……”

Did it really play off?

“Tsk tsk …… Old man Long really impressed me with his three days of separation.” Qin Ye looked like he had no conscience and tsked, “At an old age, he actually has such blood courage, what even a youngster like me wouldn’t dare to play, he actually dares to play.”

A word that made several girls in the ward blush crimson.

Qin Xiao Qian secretly tugged at Qin Ye, signalling him to shut up.

Chen Dong rubbed his nose and suddenly gave a cold laugh, “You also know that you don’t even dare to play, and Elder Long still dares to play so big?”

Saying that, he looked at Kun Lun.

Kun Lun understood and went forward to check Elder Long’s injuries.

Gradually, his brow tightened.

At this time, Gu Qingying said, “Uncle Liu said that the person who whipped Elder Long had mastered the power with great precision and was not running for his life.”

The words had just fallen.

Kunlun turned around and said in a deep voice, “Indeed, Long Lao is so old, if they really wanted him dead, a few lashes would be enough, these wounds were grasped with extreme precision, and an ordinary woman would not be able to whip with such precise force at all.”

“Then someone did it on purpose!”

Chen Dong let out a breath, his eyes steeply cold: “I’ll turn the city upside down to find the person who injured Elder Long.”

With a voice like a cold wind, the temperature in the ward seemed to have plummeted to freezing point.

When the crowd came back to their senses, Chen Dong had already turned around and walked out, “Kunlun Lone Wolf will follow me, Xiao Ying will take Xiao Qian home, Qin Ye Fan Lu will stay at the hospital.”

The crowd’s faces changed, but they did not say much.

Everyone knew the relationship between Chen Dong and Elder Long.

Even they had a lot of anger in their hearts.

Although the other party was not aiming for Elder Long’s life, the whip marks all over his back was already a big crime for an old man from Gu’ao, and the slightest carelessness would be fatal.

After leaving the hospital.

Kunlun suggested, “Young master, why don’t we ask Lord Meng to help track it down?”

“No need, I probably know who did it.”

Chen Dong shook his head, looking cold and suppressing his anger, “With Elder Long’s skills, if he doesn’t want to, can you beat him up like this in a short time, Kun Lun?”

Kun Lun was horrified and stood frozen on the spot.

Chen Dong’s words had enlightened Kun Lun.

Indeed, Elder Long’s body was really no match for an ordinary young strong man!

And Chen Dong had indeed seen Elder Long strike.

An existence that cried out for an old man, but with his backhand could nullify a young strong man with a slap, if he did not voluntarily give up resistance, even a practitioner, no, even Kunlun, could not subdue Elder Long for a moment!

“Someone close to him did this?”

Kunlun sucked in a cold breath, that was the only possibility now.

Chen Dong smiled coldly, “The Qin family has been in a state of decline for three days, Old Lady Chen was forced by her father to watch the fire from across the river, unable to rescue her, it would be a lie if Old Lady Chen wasn’t angry, now that the dust has settled, the old undead should start to show her might, right?”

Kunlun and Lone Wolf were struck by lightning as they listened.

At that very moment.

The three of them had already walked out of the hospital.

Kunlun suddenly saw a figure by the hospital garden, and his pupils immediately tightened.

Snapping!

Kunlun raised his hand and yanked Chen Dong and Lone Wolf.
