The door to the room slammed heavily.
Inside the house, peace returned.
Old Master Li and Li Deshan stood frozen on the spot.
The Li clan ancestral shrine was not worthy of worshipping Li Lan?
This son’s words were too rampant?
It was true that the Li family was nothing compared to the Chen family, but it was not something that this mere junior could insult at will!
This was an insult to the ancestors of the Li family as well!
Chen Dong’s resounding words were still ringing in his ears.
Rampant, domineering and out of sight ……
It was as if he was standing on the clouds, looking down on the Li family as if they were ants.
“Dad, this son is too rampant, I really don’t know how you still have to put a hot face on a cold ass?”
Li Deshan was furious, his face flushed red, and his words, like sharp needles, viciously pierced his pride: “My titled Li family, the richest in Kyoto, and the Li family ancestral hall is a place that all Li family members dream of for a hundred years, who is he to use the heart of a living person to infer the intentions of Li Lan, a dead person?”
The words had just fallen.
The seated Elder Li’s body suddenly shook.
A strange flush appeared abruptly on his pale and haggard face.
There was a movement of his throat.
Silently, a stream of fresh blood flowed from the corner of Elder Li’s mouth.
The rage was overwhelming!
Li Deshan was terrified and flung himself in front of Elder Li’s knees, “Dad, don’t scare me, Dad, you can’t be alright!”
“I… I’m fine ……”
Elder Li trembled with his right hand and smiled decrepitly, “Deshan ah, you don’t understand, nowadays the imperial capital is in turmoil, my Li family is even more in turmoil, countless people are secretly eyeing my Li family and want to kill them afterwards, Chen Dong even if he doesn’t inherit the Li family’s headship.”
“But, if we can invite Lan’er back to the Li family’s clan ancestral shrine for worship, with this tie in place, in the future, if my Li family really suffers a great disaster, Chen Dong will never ignore it, because his mother is still within the Li family’s clan ancestral shrine.”
With this explanation, Li Deshan’s face turned pale and he sat down on the ground in dismay.
“So, that’s why you covered up and brought me here quietly to meet Chen Dong?”
Before following his father to this side, his purpose to his father was limited to inviting Li Lan inside the clan shrine.
This would have made sense if it was on account of the guilt of kinship.
The layer of protecting the Li family, on the other hand, had never occurred to him.
“What else? If not, could it be that the old man was so larded that he broke the rules of the Li family and invited his daughter’s body into the clan ancestral hall?” The smile on Old Master Li’s mouth was thick with helplessness.
The Li family’s clan ancestral hall was not to be entered by a male body!
This was the third rule of the clan ancestral hall!
Li Deshan was in a trance, his gaze flickering.
After a few seconds had passed, he looked at Elder Li with pain and sadness.
After gritting his teeth, he said, “Dad, let’s not beg this disobedient and unfilial person, with you, with us brothers, and with the children of the magnificent Li family, the Li family will never fall, why do you have to suffer this indignity, rubbing the face of our Li family into the dust in front of this rebellious son.”
A sudden, powerful slap to the face.
It directly struck Li Deshan dumbfounded.
Elder Li’s raised right hand trembled terribly, as if the late lion had burst out in its last fierceness.
He looked at Li Deshan angrily, “You rat-eyed generation, can’t you even see the situation in Kyoto today?”
“Dad ……” Li Deshan covered his face and snapped back to his senses.
The old man, however, did not give him the slightest chance to retort, and said through clenched teeth, “The old man is already dying, and his life will not be long, now the major forces in Kyoto are eyeing the Li family, and all rely on the old man’s broken body to struggle for support.
His words were angry, and he did not even conceal his comments about the Li Deshan brothers.
“Chen Dong’s ability and heart are all excellent candidates for the head of the Li family, even if it does not become the Li family, if we can get him a look, with his strength today, and the Chen family behind him, it is enough to protect my Li family’s position as the richest man in Kyoto.”
“With him, who would dare to shake the Li family with those giants of Kyoto? He is the only one who can protect the Li family!”
The tone of his voice was raised, and he roared out almost at the top of his lungs.
However, the overwhelming emotion caused Elder Li’s body to tremble once again.
His face instantly rose to the colour of pig’s liver.
A large mouthful of fresh blood suddenly spurted out.
The blood was even like plum blossoms dotting his face, sprinkling all over Li Deshan’s face.
Li Deshan was struck by lightning and cried out, “Dad, calm down your anger, you must calm down your anger, my son understands, my son understands everything, from now on, my son does not dare to refute you anymore.”
Blood stained his chest.
Master Li smiled sadly and slowly spat out the words, “Send, send me …… to the hospital.”
After saying that, he collapsed directly onto Li Deshan’s body.
Li Deshan panicked in fear, anger surged, gritting his teeth and saying with red eyes, “Chen Dong, you disobedient son, if anything happens to my father today, I, I will definitely fight you to the death!”
Chen Dong, who had left the Carlton Hotel, did not know everything that had happened after he left.
In his mind, the Li family’s way of doing things.
It was simply shameless.
It made people feel absurdly funny!
They had committed all sorts of evil deeds by any means necessary, eating buns of human blood, and now that the river was going down, they were eating it up and feeling remorseful?
A simple dedication to the clan ancestral hall, and you want to wipe out everything that happened over 20 years ago?
A mere ancestral shrine of the Li family, worthy of offering to her mother?
What a joke!
If my mother had been true to the Li family, what would have happened in the Li family in the first place?
The Li family had already hurt her to the core!
If he agreed to enshrine his mother in the Li family’s ancestral hall, would he not be letting her die in peace?
As a son, that would be the greatest unfiliality of all!
The glory of the Chen family was what his mother should have.
In life, and in death, she should have enjoyed the glory of the Chen family, above all others!
Not the sordid and nasty Li family.
His heart was full of anger and rage.
Chen Dong drove his car all the way to Dingtai, driving as fast as he could.
When he arrived at Dingtai, his anger was still fresh in his heart.
But he knew very well that this was his personal matter and he could not bring this anger into his work.
He took a few deep breaths with great effort and suppressed his anger.
Only then did Chen Dong step through the door of the company.
After greeting the staff, he returned to the office alone.
Xiao Ma and Lone Wolf soon arrived to report on their work.
These days, it was almost like the two of them were dominating the company.
To be precise, it was Xiao Ma, Chen Dong’s right-hand man, who was in charge, with Lone Wolf assisting from the side.
Now that Chen Dong had returned, it was only right that there should be a proper handover.
The handover was long and complicated, and by the time it was finished, it was already after 2pm.
Even the three of them had forgotten to eat.
“You guys go and have lunch first, it’s been hard on you.”
Chen Dong called away Xiao Ma and Lone Wolf, his depressed anger still not dispersed in his heart, leaning back in his chair and rubbing the bridge of his swollen nose.
His mother was his scales of defiance.
But the Li family had tried to tear this scale from him several times.
How could his anger be quickly quelled?
At this moment, Qin Ye’s phone call came.
Chen Dong picked up the phone, “Hey, back?”
“Back, where are you now? I’m going to look for you immediately, I have good news and bad news for you.” Qin Ye’s laugh was odd.
Half an hour later.
Chen Dong and Qin Ye met in a cafe underneath Din Tai’s building.
“Want to hear the good news first, or the bad news?” Qin Ye obliterated a mouthful of coffee and gave an odd smile.
Chen Dong said calmly.
Qin Ye raised his eyebrows, “Yoo-hoo, I thought you wanted to hear the good news first.”
“First bad and then good is the surprise, first good and then bad is the loss.” Chen Dong smiled faintly.
Qin Ye rubbed his hands together and took another sip of his coffee.
I could tell he had come in a hurry, there were still beads of sweat on his forehead, so he should have gotten off the plane and come straight over.
Put down the coffee cup.
Qin Ye smiled faintly, “The bad news is that Chen Yufei didn’t really leave the entertainment industry, after she went back to the Chen family, she opened an entertainment company in Kyoto with the support of the Chen family and made a solid transition behind the scenes.”
Saying that, Qin Ye winked and smiled strangely, “Moreover, after Chu Reed and I analyzed it, Chen Yu Fei did so, in all probability, she is running towards the entertainment company that you and Zhang Chu are partnering with.”
“The last public opinion war, she ended up failing, and the big credit for that was the Zhang and Chu families’ secret guidance.
Still not dead set on it?
Chen Dong frowned, a little stunned.
The public opinion war had completely killed the possibility of Chen Yufei’s survival in the entertainment industry.
What’s more, after the Chen family was involved, this matter was not just between him and Chen Yufei, but was about the Chen family.
A permanent withdrawal from the entertainment industry was the only way to protect public opinion from spreading to the Chen family.
However, after such an incident, Chen Yu Fei could still get the support of the Chen family to restart her entertainment company, which was something Chen Dong had never expected.
This serpentine woman was really the jewel in Old Madam Chen’s crown!
“So, women are troublesome, right?” Qin Ye saw Chen Dong frowning and smiled and joked.
Chen Dong raised his eyebrows and smiled teasingly, “You’re referring to Zhang Yulan?”
“Your sister’s ……,” Qin Ye’s smile disappeared from his face and he raised his middle finger at Chen Dong.
Chen Dong smiled spontaneously and continued to ask, “What about the good news?”
Chen Yufei was undying and still wanted to make a comeback, he didn’t care too much.
Having lost her base in the entertainment industry, she had blatantly released an apology video under such a huge public outcry at the time.
This was already killing all the fans she had accumulated, in one fell swoop.
Even if she wanted to create the same kind of monstrous storm in the entertainment circle as she did last time, it would never be possible.
The only thing that can be done is perhaps to point the finger at Chu Reed’s entertainment company, but fortunately he has already let the Zhang family into the entertainment company in advance, the two old and new oligarchs of the entertainment circle join forces, how can Chen Yufei still turn the sky?
If the Zhang family was still alone, Chen Yufei teamed up with the Zhang family, Chen Dong would still have scruples, but now, they are all Chen family members, who can still bully anyone with their power?
Qin Ye rubbed his hands together and said meaningfully, “It’s about your mother’s Li family!”
“The Li family?”
Chen Dong’s brow tightened into a Chuan frown.
Only one foot had met the two fathers and sons of Elder Li, and the next foot Qin Ye was talking about the Li family.
Was there any connection between this?
“Yes, the Li family in Kyoto!”
Qin Ye’s eyes flickered with essence and said with interest, “Didn’t you hate the Li family, now the Li family’s retribution has come, last time you and your father made a fuss over the Li family in order to save your mother, causing the Li family’s position as the richest man to shake, and Kyoto to be in turmoil.”
“This time, those dragon and tiger giants in Kyoto, where dragons and tigers are hidden, have already had dark currents and have already started laying out plans to encroach on some of the resources and businesses under the Li family’s command.”
Saying that, Qin Ye leaned back in his chair and rested his hands behind his head, with a sighing look.
“Nowadays, the Li family is really surrounded by wolves, everyone is sharpening their knives and preparing to share a piece of the meat of the former richest man in Kyoto, the Li family is already on edge now.”
The sound of sighing did not make Chen Dong feel the slightest bit happy.
On the contrary, his face became more and more sullen and his eyes hostile.
“So that’s how it is, I had a feeling that the Li family had not been so kind-hearted!”
Chen Dong murmured softly, his doubts instantly cleared up.
“What do you mean?” Qin Ye asked curiously.
“Old man Li and Li Deshan, they are now in this city, I have just met them both, and old man Li even wanted to invite my mother into the Li family’s ancestral shrine to make offerings and enjoy the incense of the Li family for generations, saying that it was considered compensation for our mother and son for more than twenty years.”
Chen Dong sneered and shrugged, “How high and mighty do you think they have to be to think that putting my mother’s spirit into the Li family’s ancestral shrine will compensate for all the evil deeds they have done for twenty years?”
Qin Ye’s pupils shrank.
A sudden reaction came over.
“Slot! This is not compensation, it’s just a weasel giving a chicken a good time, inviting the spirit of your aunt back to the ancestral shrine, isn’t this a disguised way to tie you up? This is clearly looking for a life preserver for the Li family!”
“Lending my hand, relying on the name of the Chen family to protect the dwindling Li family from being divided, tsk ……”
Chen Dong was full of disdain and coldness, “The Li family has never let me down yet when it comes to shamelessness and unscrupulousness.”
“Then what do you plan to do?” Qin Ye asked with interest.
“It would be an insult to my mother to enter the Li family’s ancestral shrine.”
Chen Dong shook his head disdainfully, “Since the Li family is shameless to such an extent, then of course I wish them well in such a situation now, all the way.”
Qin Ye first froze, and then snorted with laughter.
Chen Dong rubbed his nose, the good news and bad news were all somewhat irrelevant to him.
It was nothing more than for him to see through Master Li’s plans as intended this time.
However, it was indeed good news to be able to watch the fall of the Li family.
After all, his mother’s grievances of more than 20 years would finally be known in the spring and he would be able to vomit them out.
Looking at Qin Ye, who could not stop laughing, Chen Dong suddenly asked, “How are you and Zhang Yulan doing?”
Qin Ye suddenly couldn’t stop laughing.
“Not to mention still good brothers.”
“It’s because of being good brothers that I’m asking more.” Chen Dong said.
Qin Ye scratched his head in annoyance: “If it weren’t for you, I really wouldn’t have wanted to go to Kyoto, that bitch Zhang Yulan didn’t know if she was blinded by lard. ”
“Who made you deliberately urge us to help you flirt with her in the first place?” Chen Dong rolled his eyes, “Actually, it’s almost time for you to get married, it’s not a problem to be alone all the time.”
“Nonsense! How good is it to be like Long Lao? Someone like me, it’s not worth it.”
Qin Ye strained his neck, his gaze drifted, hesitated for a moment and said firmly, “Right! It’s just not worth it!”
Chen Dong rubbed his nose and smiled noncommittally.
Inside the hospital.
Old Master Li finally woke up and lay pale on the hospital bed.
Li Deshan was surprised, “Dad, you’ve finally woken up, you scared me to death just now.”
“Where is this?” Elder Li’s eyes were a little drifting and his expression was a little dazed.
“This is in the hospital.”
Li Deshan said busily, “But don’t worry dad, I’ve already made arrangements to take you back to Kyoto right away, and then recuperate properly when you get back to Kyoto, so you don’t have to worry about Chen Dong’s matter.”
“You rebellious son!”
Master Li’s face steeped in hostility as he cursed angrily and struggled to get up, “I, I want to leave the hospital! This trip, even if I have to kneel down to Chen Dong, I will still ask him to protect my Li family!”
