Winner Takes All Chapter 34-36

Chapter 34

Saying goodbye to Elder Long.

Chen Dong and Kun Lun returned to the rented house.

The sight inside the house caused Kunlun to be stunned for a moment.

“Think it’s spartan?” Chen Dong asked.

Kunlun shook his head and said, “Young Master has worked hard all these years.”

Chen Dong smiled, he liked Kun Lun’s kind of personality, saying what should be said and not saying what should not be said.

According to Elder Long’s intention, for a long time to come, Kun Lun was going to follow him around, it would be really troublesome if his personality annoyed him.

“There are more people in the family, I’ve changed my house, I’ll be able to move in next month.”

Chen Dong smiled and said, one of the reasons for the high cost of the Tianmen Mountain villa was because the inside of the villa was designed and decorated by top designers inside and outside together at the beginning of its construction, in order to make the overall style uniform and give the owners a higher level of enjoyment.

In other words, he only needed to spend a day or two to buy the furniture, move in and move in without any problems.

Kunlun nodded, he didn’t really care about the living environment.

After following the Chen family, his life had indeed taken a great leap forward.

But back when he was on the battlefield, living a life of blood on a knife’s edge, he didn’t even have the luxury of living, between life and death, he just wanted to survive.

He had experienced even worse circumstances.

After Elder Long’s admonition, it was as if nothing had changed too much.

Chen Dong wasn’t too nervous either, he just added an extra morning fitness routine to his daily schedule.

In the past few years, he had been so busy with work and running around to treat his mother’s illness that he had taken time out to work out, and had not strictly specified a schedule to complete every day.

However, Long’s comment about “elite education” left a lump in his throat.

If you miss it, you can’t become an elite?

Or was …… no better than the elite?

He didn’t believe it!

The pressure he endured was only known to his mother, Li Lan, apart from himself.

His life is not something that can be determined by others.

The day had just dawned.

Chen Dong changed into a sports outfit and went out for a run in the park next to his neighbourhood.

The morning light was dewy and the air was fresh.

Soon, Chen Dong was drenched in sweat and panting.

But he didn’t stop, because it was not enough.

It was still early and there were not even any elderly people in the park for morning exercise.

In order not to interfere with his working hours, he had to bring his morning walk forward as much as possible, but of course he did not care about the little sleep lost.

The winding paths of the park were lit by dim street lamps.

As Chen Dong ran to a backlit, shady spot, suddenly, his gaze flickered.

In front of him, a figure appeared.

As soon as the figure appeared, it ran wildly towards him.

“Who?”

Chen Dong shouted.

At this time of the day, no one had come for their morning walk, and when a person suddenly ran towards him in the dim and secluded park, he instinctively felt that it was a robber.

But a cold laugh suddenly sounded.

“Let me test the weight of your wild son!”

A member of the Chen family!

Chen Dong’s mind was shaken, it had come really fast!

The figure rushed closer, leaped up in the air and kicked towards him.

Chen Dong was only working out and had never practiced fighting at all.

But instinctively, he quickly raised his hands in front of his chest to block.

Bang!

There was a loud bang.

Chen Dong let out a muffled grunt, feeling like his arm bones were about to break, and flew straight backwards, landing heavily on the ground.

“A wild bastard is a wild bastard, such a waste, how did he think of letting you take charge of the family?”

After landing on the ground, the silhouette did not stop and charged towards Chen Dong again like lightning.

The light was dim, and the figure was even more fierce and swift.

So much so that Chen Dong could not even see his face from the beginning to the end.

Seeing the figure rushing towards him, Chen Dong fiercely recalled the conversation he had with Elder Long last night.

This man in front of him …… dared to kill someone!

A bone-chilling evil chill instantly ran from the soles of his feet straight to the sky.

Just then, the silhouette had already rushed in front of him, his right foot raised high, like a battle axe with a humming sound, smashing down directly towards his head.

Really want to kill me?

Chen Dong’s pupils tightened, having just briefly exchanged blows, he realised that the two sides were not at all on the same level of power.

It was a close call.

Chen Dong then felt a black shadow suddenly wavering in front of him, stopping him.

The sudden appearance of the black shadow bowed fiercely and directly resisted the figure’s right leg that was slashing down vertically with his shoulder.

“Get the hell out of here!”

The huge body of the black shadow grabbed the right leg and flung it violently.

In a brutal and rough manner, the figure was thrown away.

After landing on the ground, the figure even rolled a few times before coming to a stop.

“Kunlun!”

Chen Dong got a clear view of the black shadow that stopped in front of him.

Kunlun’s lofty body was like an iron tower, standing tall, but he did not respond to Chen Dong.

Instead, he rebuked angrily at the figure that had been flung away.

“Chen Tianyang, touching my young master Chen Dong, do you want to die?”

“Kunlun? That’s fine, it seems that the old master really treats this wild bastard as a treasure, actually sending you to shelter him.”

Chen Tianyang stood up, a blast from Kunlun just now had not caused him much damage.

This scene staggered Chen Dong for a moment.

Chen Tianyang’s physique was not much different from his.

But if it had been him who had just been hit by Kunlun’s explosive fall, he definitely would not have been able to stand up.

As Chen Tianyang walked under the street light, Chen Dong also got a good look at his opponent’s appearance.

Knife-sharp, upright features, fair to the point of being almost morbid, a brutal smile curled at the corners of his mouth, but his eyes were thick with disdain.

This was an untamed man.

Chen Dong had been involved in the real estate industry, and his eyesight in reading people was not shallow.

Sure enough.

Chen Tianyang tilted his head slightly and said arrogantly to Kunlun, “But do you dare to kill me? You are just a bodyguard of the Chen family, while I am one of the future heirs of the Chen family!”

“I am the bodyguard of the lord, not the bodyguard of the Chen family, if you don’t believe me, you can try.”

Kunlun’s words were cold to the bone, “Don’t forget, your fighting skills, I’m still the one who taught you to correct them.”

Chen Tianyang’s smile froze, and his dark jewel-like eyes narrowed fiercely, radiating a cold intent.

“You, are bailing him out?”

“The lord told me to bail, Kunlun will bail even if he dies!”

“You are loyal enough!”

Chen Tianyang smiled fiercely and gave Kunlun a thumbs up, “Such a feral trash, he can’t even afford a kick from me, no wonder he wants you to protect him, but don’t get me wrong, I won’t kill him yet today.”

“I just want to come and see what the wild bastard who can make the old master directly order Yike to release a message to help him looks like and what he is capable of.”

Saying that, he looked over towards Chen Dong, smashing his lips and shaking his head in disappointment, “Now that I look at it, it’s just like that, wasteful beyond belief, the old master is really larded up.”

“Are you panicking?”

Chen Dong got up, wiped off the blood from the corner of his mouth and looked at Chen Tianyang with a smile, “But if a waste like you had a few abilities, how would he find a wild bastard like me to go back and take over the Chen family?”

The teasing laughter was like a knife and a sword.

It plunged fiercely into Chen Tianyang’s heart.

It made Chen Tianyang’s expression abruptly gloomy and cold to the extreme.

Chapter 35

“You, who are you talking to?”

Chen Tianyang gritted his teeth and squeezed out a sentence from between them.

Who among the young people in the family did not want to take charge of the family?

But for the old man to suddenly run away and find a wild seed with the intention of bringing it back to the family was simply a slap in their face.

As the elite sons of the family, how could they willingly give way to a feral seed?

Chen Dong laughed disdainfully, “Kunlun, go home.”

Was this being ignored?

Chen Tianyang’s anger raged and his eyes were almost eating him.

But he was clear that with Kunlun around, he could not move Chen Dong at all.

The fact that the old master had sent his personal bodyguard to this wild bastard was enough to see how much the old master valued him.

“You will know the difference between an elite and a feral seed.” Chen Tianyang’s voice carried a piercing chill.

When he returned home, Chen Dong sat straight down on the sofa.

“Just now, thank you.”

Kunlun shook his head, “Duty calls.”

Chen Dong smiled noncommittally.

If Kun Lun had not appeared just now, he dared not think of what Chen Tianyang would have done to him.

As Elder Long had said, they …… were not afraid of killing people.

“Kun Lun, you just said that you taught Chen Tianyang to correct his fighting skills?” Chen Dong raised his eyebrows.

“Yes.”

Chen Dong smiled, his gaze firm, “Teach me.”

Chen Tianyang’s appearance had caused a deep sense of crisis to emerge in him.

It was not so much the deprivation of everything that existed, but the disregard for life that Chen Tianyang and the others had.

When the other side would be able to ignore life, that sense of crisis would skyrocket like a weed, because Chen Dong still had people to guard.

In the following days, Chen Dong would go to the park with Kunlun early in the morning to exercise, then go home with a sweaty body to take a shower, and then bore himself into the company to get busy with work.

Everything was going on in an orderly manner.

My mother’s condition, too, was progressing in a good direction.

Chen Tianyang, on the other hand, had never been seen again after his appearance that morning.

It was as if it was just a small episode in Chen Dong’s life, making waves and then returning to peace.

In the blink of an eye, it was the first of September.

At noon, Chen Dong was unable to eat lunch and was working overtime reviewing the pre-sale plans that Xiao Ma and his team had sent up.

The infrastructure of the shantytown in the west of the city had been completed and was ready for pre-sale.

With the heavy news of Yike’s arrival in front of him, he was very concerned and confident about this pre-sale.

With all the hustle and bustle and hard work, it was time to pick the fruit.

After the pre-sale plan was easily reviewed and approved, Chen Dong pinched the bridge of his somewhat swollen nose.

Looking at the time, it was already one o’clock at noon.

Outside, the sky was overcast and dark.

Heavy rain was coming.

Chen Dong frowned, always feeling that he had forgotten something.

He picked up his phone, which was on silent mode when he was reviewing the pre-sale plan just now.

His right hand slowly slid across the WeChat interface and roughly skimmed through the message content.

Suddenly, Chen Dong’s gaze froze.

Looking at the message sent by Gu Qingying in WeChat.

He finally remembered what he had forgotten.

WeChat from Gu Qingying: Chen Dong, have you come to the airport yet?

The time, however, was half an hour ago.

Damn!

How could I have forgotten about this?

Chen Dong was annoyed, Gu Qingying had made an appointment with him before she returned to China.

He was so busy with his work that he had actually let it slip?

Chen Dong hurriedly sent a WeChat to Gu Qingying: “Qingying, are you still at the airport? I’m sorry, I was busy with work and forgot, my phone was on silent mode.”

Ever since his and Wang Nan Nan’s wedding three years ago, Gu Qingying had left for the other side of the ocean, and the contact information he once had was gone, the only contact he had was via WeChat.

Ding!

“It’s on.” Gu Qingying replied.

“I’ll be right over to pick you up.”

Chen Dong felt a pang of guilt, put on his jacket and hurriedly ran out.

Airport lobby.

People come and go.

But those who came and went would all look in awe at a girl in the corner.

The girl wears a sun hat, a long snow-white dress and a pair of snow-white board shoes.

An extremely simple outfit, but it gave people a feeling of fairy air.

Because, the girl was just too beautiful!

“Still the same as back then, workaholic.”

Gu Qingying put down her phone and grumbled with a beak.

She and Chen Dong and Wang Nan Nan were all university classmates, and she knew Chen Dong’s family situation.

After graduation, Chen Dong had worked day and night in order to marry Wang Nan Nan, which had earned him the title of “workaholic”.

Through the floor-to-ceiling window, he took a look at the dark and oppressive sky outside.

Gu Qingying murmured with a little aggravation, “It’s going to rain.”

She had actually landed half an hour ago when she sent a weibo to Chen Dong.

She did not receive a reply from Chen Dong and did not leave.

It was because she wanted the first person she saw when she returned to China after three years apart to be Chen Dong.

She also wanted her relationship with Chen Dong, from here at the airport, to start afresh.

It was just that she did not expect that the workaholic had actually forgotten about picking her up because of his work.

After a short period of aggravation, Gu Qingying took a deep breath and revealed a happy smile.

“It’s nothing, who told you to work so hard?”

By the time Chen Dong arrived at the airport in a dusty state, another forty minutes had passed.

The sky, which was originally overwhelmed by dark clouds, finally could not bear it.

Pouring rain came pouring down.

As he ran into the airport lobby wet, he caught a glimpse of Gu Qingying, who was waiting in the corner, bored out of his mind.

After three years of separation, Gu Qingying had not changed much from then, she was still as pretty as ever, but her temperament had become a little more mature, without the childishness she had when we parted.

“Qingying, I’m sorry I’m too late.”

Chen Dong said guiltily as he walked quickly in front of Gu Qingying.

As soon as she saw Chen Dong, the bored Gu Qingying’s smile suddenly blossomed and she stood up, not caring about Chen Dong’s wet body, and directly hugged him.

“Workaholic, it’s been a long time!”

“Hey hey, let go, it’s getting your clothes wet.”

Chen Dong hurriedly shouted, struggling a little.

Gu Qingying let go of Chen Dong and gave a scornful glance, “I don’t even dislike you, you still dislike me.”

Chen Dong was speechless for a while and took the two large suitcases beside Gu Qingying and said, “Let’s go, I made a reservation, you must be starving, right?”

Gu Qingying covered her stomach, pretending to be uncomfortable and said, “I’m so hungry that my stomach is deflated.”

Chen Dong smiled spontaneously and walked with Gu Qingying towards the outside of the airport.

“By the way, it’s raining so hard, why don’t you wear an umbrella?” Gu Qingying asked.

“I came too fast and forgot to bring it.” Chen Dong said.

Gu Qingying frowned slightly: “What if you catch a cold in the rain? You don’t know how to take care of yourself at all.”

Chen Dong smiled, not feeling anything strange about Gu Qingying’s words.

The two of them walked out of the airport.

Because of the heavy rain, the waiting lane in front of the airport was already empty.

“Where’s the car?” Gu Qingying was a little dumbfounded.

“It’s raining so heavily, the flight is delayed, the taxis have collected the last wave of customers, they should all be gone.”

Chen Dong was a little helpless, he was in such a hurry to get in just now that he had forgotten to tell the taxi driver to wait.

Gu Qingying was stunned for a moment: “No, I mean, where’s your car?”

Chen Dong: “I didn’t buy a car.”

“Then we can’t go back.”

Gu Qingying lowered her head in some frustration, suddenly she looked up with a smile and snapped her fingers, “It’s alright, I’ll go and think of a way.”

After saying that, she turned around and rushed into the rain, running in one direction.

“Gu Qingying, what are you going to do if you get yourself wet? Come back quickly!” Chen Dong shouted.

“It’s alright, we can take medicine together.” Gu Qingying said back.

Chen Dong was immediately confused, why was this girl still as big-hearted as before?

However, he was also a little curious, what could Gu Qingying think of when she returned to China for the first time in three years?

Twenty minutes later.

A Porsche 911 drove along the airport waiting lane.

There was a creak.

The Porsche 911 stopped in front of Chen Dong.

Chen Dong was stunned for a moment before he saw the car window lowered, revealing a rain-soaked Gu Qingying inside.

Gu Qingying smiled and said, “Get in the car, let’s go home.”

“Where did you get your car?” Stunned, Chen Dong put his gifts away and got into the car.

Gu Qingying pointed to the distance, “When I left the country three years ago, wasn’t there an auto city being repaired near the airport? I went over and found a 4s shop nearby and bought a random one.”

Bought a Porsche 911!

So random?

Chen Dong subconsciously reached out to touch the Bauhinia bank card in his pocket.

Such a random idea, why didn’t I think of it?

Chapter 36

Pooh’s Western Restaurant.

It was at this restaurant that Chen Dong first ate western food in his life, when Gu Qingying was treating him.

During his four years at university, he, Wang Nan Nan, Gu Qingying and three or five friends often met here.

Three years ago, when Gu Qingying left, she also said goodbye to him and Wang Nan Nan in this restaurant.

Therefore, this restaurant was of great significance.

“Workaholic? I didn’t think you still remembered?”

Gu Qingying ruffled his damp hair, his gaze deep as he looked at the entrance of the brilliantly lit restaurant.

“How could I forget?”

Chen Dong smiled bitterly.

Gu Qingying wrinkled her jade nose: “But you’re too stingy, aren’t you? At least you are now the vice president of a real estate company, I came all the way back and you bring me to a place like this?”

For the past three years, although she was across the ocean, she had kept an eye on Chen Dong and Wang Nan Nan.

Otherwise, it would not have been possible for her to send a WeChat to ask Chen Dong when he and Wang Nan Nan had just gotten divorced.

In her opinion, it was really great that Chen Dong was able to spend three years to sit from a graduated university student to the position of vice president of a real estate company.

And this, with Chen Dong’s birth, was probably considered to be the limit, right?

“So which restaurant do you want to go to? Order whatever you want, it’s on me.” Chen Dong laughed bashfully.

“Come on, just this one.”

Gu Qingying beamed and took the lead to get out of the car.

She knew that although Chen Dong was the vice president of the company and had a good salary, most of his money was spent on Wang Nan Nan and on treating his mother’s illness.

She did not want to make things difficult for Chen Dong.

When they got out of the car, both of them were dripping wet, but they didn’t care.

When the two walked into the restaurant, they instantly attracted the attention of many diners.

After all, it was indeed a bit indecent to come to a Western restaurant in such a mess.

After taking their seats and ordering their dishes, the dishes were soon served.

Chen Dong and Gu Qingying had a good time eating and chatting at the same time.

But neither of them mentioned Wang Nan Nan.

Gu Qingying was because she did not want to mention Wang Nan Nan at this juncture and put Chen Dong in a sad state.

As for Chen Dong, it was also because he did not want to affect Gu Qingying’s current mood.

“Right, when I return to China, I want to find a job.”

Gu Qingying smiled and winked, “Vice President Chen, would you like to invite me to work in your company?”

Chen Dong was stunned for a moment and laughed bitterly, “My God, you really have a cold?”

“You’re the one with a brain fever.” Gu Qingying rolled her eyes, such a broken mouth was something she used to do with Chen Dong when she was in college.

Chen Dong pretended to be relieved, “That’s good, but you’re at least a rich white girl, how come you’re thinking of going to work when you can’t easily go back to China for the second time?”

He probably knew something about Gu Qingying’s family situation.

This was a standard white rich beauty, and having a white rich beauty run to work at Dingtai?

Wasn’t that a joke?

“How can I help you if I don’t go to work?”

Gu Qingying said in her heart, but looking at Chen Dong, she smiled and said helplessly, “If I don’t go to work, my father will have to let me inherit the family business ah.”

Chen Dong was speechless for a while.

Immediately afterwards, Gu Qingying said, “Forget it, your Vice President Chen won’t invite me, then I’ll go to work at my father’s company.”

Chen Dong nodded his head and did not pursue the matter.

He did not want to pry into his friend’s personal affairs too much.

After the meal was over, the two of them happily returned to the car.

“Can I go to your house?” Gu Qingying pointed at her wet dress, “I want to go to your house to take a hot bath and change my clothes.”

Chen Dong raised his eyebrows, the conditions of the rented room made it a little difficult for Gu Qingying to go.

What’s more, there was a big Kunlun at home.

Shaking his head, Chen Dong said, “I’m still renting a house, it’s too messy at home, I’ll send you to the hotel.”

A rented house?

Gu Qingying’s pretty face changed as she looked at Chen Dong with sudden heartache.

He had endured too much during the three years I was away.

She smiled and nodded, “Alright then.”

“Let’s go to the Taishan Hotel.” Chen Dong said.

“Okay yeah.”

Gu Qingying did not refuse, nor did she say anything about paying for the bill herself.

She knew Chen Dong’s situation, and that all the money he earned had been given to Wang Nan Nan and to his mother’s medical treatment, otherwise he wouldn’t still be renting a room until now.

However, she didn’t want to hurt Chen Dong’s self-esteem because of her own heartache and make him feel that she was worried that he couldn’t afford to pay.

A man’s self-esteem is not to be trampled on in the slightest.

The car started up.

The car was a bit dim.

Gu Qingying suddenly asked, “By the way, how is Auntie’s recent condition?”

“Fine, I guess.” Chen Dong said.

Gu Qingying frowned, “Actually, I know about your matter, I can help you, no, I mean help auntie.”

“I have thought of other ways, my mother is recovering, she should be discharged soon.” Chen Dong said.

“Really? That’s great!”

Gu Qingying smiled happily, “Chen Dong you’re great, you know, ever since I was in college, I’ve always admired you and idolised you.”

“Don’t patronise me, when I was in college I was trying to copy my homework, but now I won’t copy it.” Chen Dong rolled his eyes.

Gu Qingying smiled wryly and turned to say, “Then can I go and visit my aunt tomorrow?”

Chen Dong nodded, “Yes, I’ll take you there with me tomorrow night after work.”

The car arrived at the Taishan Hotel.

Chen Dong helped Gu Qingying to take down her gifts and get a room.

After sending Gu Qingying back to her room, he turned around and left.

Looking at the closed door, the smile on Gu Qingying’s face disappeared and was replaced by indescribable heartache.

“I know all about it, you and Nan Nan divorce, the trigger is Nan Nan took away your mother’s last two hundred thousand dollars of life-saving money, this matter, no one else would tolerate it.”

After Wang Nan Nan and Chen Dong divorced, the Wang family immediately publicized the matter.

All along, the Wang family had held an inexplicable sense of superiority, feeling that it was Chen Dong who had climbed high above the Wang family and Wang Nan Nan.

But Gu Qingying felt that it was the Wang family that had really climbed higher!

The divorce was proclaimed, although the Wang family had deliberately turned black and white, but Gu Qingying knew about Chen Dong and Wang Nan Nan from many different sources.

Chen Dong’s mother’s life-saving money, or the only 200,000.

Yet it was taken back to her mother’s family by Wang Nan Nan, and the purpose, was simply to buy a down payment for a house for Wang Hao.

This is simply ridiculous!

Gu Qingying didn’t know how much Chen Dong had endured during this period of time.

But she knew that on the one hand, his mother was seriously ill, and on the other hand, his wife had cut off his last hope of saving his mother’s life, such a drastic change was too much for anyone to bear.

And Chen Dong, strong enough to pull through!

“You’re too tired, I don’t want you to be so tired, so I’m back.”

Gu Qingying smiled gently as her eyes became firm, “I will definitely help you, I know that your heaven and earth shouldn’t be just a vice president of a real estate company.”

After saying that, she took out her mobile phone and dialed a number.

“Dad, I’m here, I’ve just finished dinner and arrived at the hotel.”

Pausing for a few seconds, Gu Qingying smiled and said, “Dad, I want to go to work at your building materials company, anyway, that company you keep is just for the remembrance of your struggle back then, let me go to a class to experience, it’s nothing, right?”

“You silly girl, going to such a small company is too condescending, if you want to work, you can just come back and follow your father?” On the other end of the phone, my father’s voice was full of doting.

“No, following daddy would make me inherit the family business? I still want to struggle.” Gu Qingying crossed her white feet and wiggled them, pampering herself, “OK?”

“Go ahead, I’ll make a call to the company’s boss, you can just go over and take over his position directly.”

“Hee hee …… thank you daddy, daddy is the best.”
