All night long.
The Shanhe Guild Hall did not even settle down.
Ye Yuanqiu’s disappearance had caused everyone in the Shanhe Hall to toss and turn.
Yuan Yigang did not leave the Shanhe Hall, he was still sitting in the East Courtyard for Chen Dong’s safety.
But the members of the Hong Society within the Shanhe Hall swarmed out nearly 90% of them overnight.
The whole city was turned over in one night.
Until the time of dawn, Ye Yuanqiu was not found.
Inside the East Courtyard.
The atmosphere was solemn and frozen.
Chen Dong and Ye Linglong had not slept all night.
Ye Linglong was worried about Ye Yuanqiu.
And Chen Dong was accompanying Ye Linglong.
Chen Dong was not an ungrateful person, even if his initial impression of Ye Linglong was not good.
But during the period when he was injured, Ye Linglong did guard and take care of him at all times.
Now that Ye Yuanqiu was in trouble, it was only right for him to accompany Ye Linglong.
The door opened.
Ye Linglong’s delicate body trembled, as if she was struck by electricity, and she was busy looking back.
Chen Dong also raised his eyes to look at the door.
Yuan Yigang walked in with a frown, and under his gold-rimmed gla*ses, he could not hide his exhaustion from a night of sleep.
He felt the gaze of Chen Dong and Ye Linglong.
He sighed and shook his head silently.
Ye Linglong’s shell teeth clenched her red lips, and in a flash her beautiful eyes filled with tears.
“Big brother, have you searched all over the city?”
Yuan Yigang stood in silence, pushing the gold-rimmed gla*ses on the bridge of his nose.
The Mountain River a*sociation Hall was the Hong a*sociation’s main hall, and the entire city had the most manpower among the three thousand six hundred sects.
In one night, not to mention searching the whole city.
Even the small, remote corners, even the outskirts, had been searched.
Seeing Yuan Yigang’s silence, Ye Linglong’s heart sank down one by one.
She knew how many people the Hong Society had in this city, and she knew how ridiculous it was for her to ask, but she just asked it unwillingly.
The next second.
Ye Linglong suddenly got up and said stubbornly, “I’ll go out and look for it.”
Yuan Yigang’s eyebrows knitted as he said in a deep voice.
Almost simultaneously, a large hand pulled Ye Linglong’s hand.
Chen Dong’s tone carried a touch of softness, but it caused Ye Linglong to pause in her steps.
“He is my grandfather, that’s the only family I have!”
Ye Linglong looked back at Chen Dong, the worries that had been pent up all night, at this moment finally could not help but turn into tears, flowing out along the corners of her eyes.
The pearly blossoms were tinged with rain and grief.
“Ninety percent of the entire club has gone out, and after searching all night, they can’t be found, what do you think is the use of you going out now?”
Chen Dong said in a deep voice: “The Dragon Head will not give up, the people of the Hong Society will continue to look, all you have to do now is to stay in this room.”
“But I ……,” Ye Linglong reluctantly tried to argue.
Fearing that something had happened to her grandfather, her heart seemed to be hanging in her throat.
It was already her limit to be able to sit withered for a whole night.
“If you want to go out and look for it, then push me along.”
Chen Dong’s words made Ye Linglong swallow back all the words that were coming out of her mouth.
There was silence for a few seconds.
In the end, Ye Linglong still sat back in her chair.
Yuan Yigang, who witnessed this scene all over the city, his eyes flickered for a moment.
Eventually, his eyes regained their calmness and fell on Ye Linglong.
“Linglong, Chen Dong is right, right now you should stay in this house, Ancestor is the ancestor of the Hong Society, the Hong Society will not give up the search so easily, I think you should take a break, when there is news of Ancestor, I will inform you first.”
After saying that, Yuan Yigang turned around and was about to walk out.
But at this moment, a voice suddenly came from outside.
“Dragon head, Ancestor has returned!”
A middle-aged man hurriedly rushed into the room.
In an instant, Chen Dong, Ye Linglong and Yuan Yigang were all startled at the same time.
“Where’s my grandfather?” Ye Linglong, who had just sat down, stood up in a moment, ecstatic.
The middle-aged man looked odd as he mumbled his lips and said, “Ancestor, Ancestor he …… is still in front of the Mountain River a*sociation Hall, he, he refuses to come in.”
The three Chen Dong were dumbfounded on the spot.
The man had returned, how come he still refused to enter the Mountain River a*sociation Hall?
Ye Linglong immediately ran out.
Yuan Yigang was about to turn around and follow, but Chen Dong shouted, “Bring me along?”
“Don’t fool around, you’re a target to be killed.”
Yuan Yigang coldly dropped a sentence without stopping.
Chen Dong: “……”
The mind that had been calm suddenly became somewhat sultry.
Ten minutes later.
Outside, the sound of boisterous people rang out.
Chen Dong’s mind was lifted.
Listening carefully to the sound of people getting closer, the corners of his mouth suddenly twitched, revealing a look of embarra*sment.
Amidst the boisterous sound of people, there was Ye Yuanqiu’s voice that was almost hissing at the top of his voice.
“Drink, let’s keep drinking!”
“You’re scared? You’re a wimp?”
“Hahaha …… let you Sl*t, this is the body spoiled, even drinking is weak, right?”
Is this …… drunk?
The corners of Chen Dong’s mouth twitched one after another.
The titular Hong Society Yuan Zi generation ancestor, suddenly play lost, let the Hong Society looking for a night, almost almost turned the city upside down.
He actually …… ran out for a drink?
Now run back to spill the wine madness?
Nima …… shameless na!
The sound of people was close at hand.
Chen Dong could already see Ye Yuanqiu, who was being supported by Ye Linglong and Yuan Yigang.
Ye Yuanqiu was in a terrible mess, his clothes were somewhat torn, covered in gravel and still wet.
And the deep flush on his cheeks, while the gaze that could barely find focus, was proof enough of how drunk Ye Yuanqiu really was.
While being a*sisted along, the old man struggled one way or another, raising his hands at times and laughing out loud at others.
It was a scene that was woefully inadequate.
So much so that it made both Ye Linglong and Yuan Yigang feel a little humiliated, and they both turned their faces sideways, unable to look straight at it.
Ancestor of the Yuan Dynasty!
An existence that was above ten thousand people in the Hong Society, an existence that even the leader had to respect.
Had he ever been seen in such a state of disarray?
If word of this got out, what would people outside think of the Hong Society? What would people think of Ye Yuanqiu?
Chen Dong, who was sitting on the bed, could even see the members of the Hong Society behind him, trying to hold in their laughter.
It was estimated that if not for the presence of Ye Linglong and Yuan Yigang, they would have burst out laughing.
Ye Yuanqiu kicked open the half-hidden door of the room.
With that, his body bowed slightly and his drunken eyes stared straight at Chen Dong, his eyes turning fiery in a flash.
It was going to be a disaster!
Eyes locked, a thick layer of goosebumps instantly rose on Chen Dong’s body.
The next second.
Ye Yuanqiu suddenly twisted his body and broke free from Ye Linglong and Yuan Yigang’s support.
In full view of everyone, he stumbled, and in a stance that was close to lunging towards the floor, he narrowly but narrowly flung himself onto the edge of Chen Dong’s bed.
“Ye Lao, what are you doing?”
The corners of Chen Dong’s eyes jumped wildly and he subconsciously moved to the other corner.
Ye Yuanqiu struggled to stand up by holding onto the edge of the bed, sitting on his buttocks on the edge of the bed, before wrapping his arms around Chen Dong’s shoulders.
Ye Linglong and Yuan Yigang exclaimed at the same time.
Chen Dong even stared round, his hands clenched, his only sense restraining him from swinging both fists into Ye Yuanqiu’s old face.
Ye Yuanqiu let out a long, drunken burp into Chen Dong’s face, exploding with unpleasant, pungent alcoholic fumes.
Then with a naive smile, “Brother die, accompany old baby me to have a drink, huh? I’m still looking for you to open a table tomorrow, ten xo, you have to help me arrange a few more pretty little babes, I have to show my face properly in front of the old pervert, as old as he is to play, I have to play too.”
The air seemed to freeze.
Everyone’s jaws dropped.
Ye Linglong even covered her mouth in shock and almost screamed out.
This F**king …… really knows how to play!
Chen Dong’s five senses were nearly in a state of lividity, staring intently at Ye Yuanqiu, who was rotten and drunk in front of him.
A single sentence had overturned the impression he had always had of Ye Yuanqiu.
Ye Yuanqiu acted as if he was unaware of it, and took Chen Dong by the shoulders to complain.
“That old man, he is usually moral and obedient, saying “Old slave, old slave”, but in the midst of the lights and wine, he is a heavy hitter, that’s a loose cannon.”
Ye Yuanqiu’s neck was strained, another long burp of wine, spraying Chen Dong’s eyebrows tightly wrinkled, almost vomiting out.
After he had easily smoothed out his breath, Ye Yuanqiu complained again, “Even if he is a lackey who is a loose cannon, he actually mocked me for being a stubborn and conservative old thing, hehe …… I really believed his evil, really thought I, the ancestor of the Hong Society, was a good doll when I was young? ”
“I really want to play, even if he ten dog minion, but also can not play me! He can be an old baby, I can’t be an old baby, who isn’t an old baby these days?”
Chen Dong: “0?”
He subconsciously looked askance at Yuan Yigang, Ye Linglong and the others at the door.
At this moment, the look on the faces of the people was a wonderful one.
Yuan Yigang’s face was blue, and Ye Linglong was in a state of panic.
The group of people from the Hong Society behind the two of them had even changed their expressions rapidly, and their faces had all turned pig liver coloured.
Ye Linglong came back to her senses.
As Ye Yuanqiu was about to speak again, she stomped her foot indignantly.
“Grandpa, you’re too drunk, I’ll help you to rest!”
Yuan Yigang turned back with a sullen face, “Still not helping to help Elder Ancestor to rest? Also, whoever dares to reveal a word about today’s incident, don’t blame my family’s law for serving you with three blades and six eyes!”
The crowd instantly responded with fear and chills.
“I’m not drunk, I can still drink, as long as there are girls.”
Being held up by the crowd, Ye Yuanqiu screamed and struggled.
Ye Linglong’s face turned blue and red in anger and hastily raised her hand to cover Ye Yuanqiu’s mouth.
The crowd quickly dispersed.
With a black face, Yuan Yigang awkwardly squeezed out a smile to Chen Dong, “Sorry for making you laugh.”
Chen Dong shrugged his shoulders, “I really didn’t expect Elder Ye to be quite good at playing games.”
The corner of Yuan Yigang’s mouth twitched as he turned around and left.
In the room, Chen Dong was the only one left in a blink of an eye.
He sat dumbfounded on the bed, thinking back to the scene just now, his face full of helplessness.
Ye Yuanqiu’s drunken and crazy performance had really crumbled the image in his mind.
It was like when ……
Chen Dong’s eyes suddenly erupted with a brilliant aura, his body shook, his expression fiercely shocked.
After a few seconds of stagnation.
He raised his hand and rubbed his nose, and suddenly smiled meaningfully.
In a low voice, he murmured, “Perhaps …… the situation is going to slowly change, the power that wants to kill me, you should soon be unable to sit still, right?”
The latter three days.
It was as if Ye Yuanqiu had disappeared into thin air in the Shanhai Guild Hall.
However, Chen Dong learned from Ye Linglong’s mouth that Ye Yuanqiu had woken up after seeing the video that a certain junior had secretly taken while he was drunk at that time, and was momentarily ashamed of himself, which was why he had sealed himself in his residence without leaving the door.
Knowing this, Chen Dong also felt sympathy for him.
Drinking is not scary, but waking up drunk and having someone to help you remember is the scariest thing.
In a good way, this was staged by Ye Yuanqiu.
The Hong Society’s three thousand six hundred sects had developed to the point where the only remaining ancestor of the Yuan generation was an ancestor, and it would not be an exaggeration to say that Ye Yuanqiu had been worshipped at the altar of the three thousand six hundred sects’ disciples.
As a result, he has pulled himself off the altar.
This was something no one else could bear.
In these three short days, the Mountain and Sea a*sociation had experienced six sets of a*sa*sinations, day and night.
You know, this is the Shanhai Hall, which is under strict security.
On average, there were two a*sa*sinations a day, so it could not be considered too fierce!
But fortunately, Chen Dong and Yuan Yigang had anticipated all this.
Under the layers of security, four of the a*sa*sinations were snuffed out by Hong Society members in other compounds early on.
The remaining two were also ended by Yuan Yigang and Ye Linglong in the East Courtyard.
It was early this morning.
Ye Linglong came into the house with Yuan Yigang, carrying breakfast.
Yuan Yigang looked a little tired, but the determination between his eyebrows had not changed a bit.
He settled down to one side, lit a cigarette and smoked it by himself.
Ye Linglong set the breakfast on the small table and brought it to the bed.
As Chen Dong ate, he surveyed Yuan Yigang and said gratefully, “It’s been hard for you these past few days.”
The titular leader of the Hong Society, perhaps not as wealthy as the Chen family, but his status was probably not much lower than his father, the head of the Chen family.
As a result, he had froze to become his close bodyguard.
While he was busy handling the affairs of the 3,600 gates of the Hong Society, he still had to protect him at the same time.
“It’s alright, a few more kills and the forces behind the curtain should not be able to sit still anymore.”
Yuan Yigang waved his hand and pulled the corners of his mouth to smile, “I serve this old ancestor of yours, that’s what I should do, it’s just that I didn’t expect that the old ancestor that I had personally promised to invite into the Hong Society in the first place would actually have to let me serve him personally so soon, sigh ……”
Chen Dong laughed helplessly.
Not to mention Yuan Yigang was depressed, even he himself was depressed.
Thinking back to the time when Ye Yuanqiu and Ye Linglong, they still used Qin Ye as blackmail to force him to enter the Hong Society.
Now he had to rely on the Hong Society to save his life.
The world was unpredictable, and the transformation in this had left Chen Dong with mixed feelings in his heart.
Taking a deep breath, Chen Dong turned his eyes to look at Ye Linglong.
“Elder Ye, still refusing to go out?”
Ye Linglong looked helpless and nodded his head.
“He was quite irritated by the video that was secretly taken by that junior.”
Yuan Yigang, who was sitting on a chair smoking, let out a “pfft” laugh and shrugged, “Seriously, this is the first time I’ve seen Zu Lao look like that in all my life, and to be fair, he’s still quite dashing.”
“Big brother ……”
Ye Linglong stomped her foot indignantly and gave Yuan Yigang a scornful glance.
Yuan Yigang deflated his mouth and smothered his cigarette in his mouth.
Chen Dong finished his breakfast, wiped the corner of his mouth and said, “Take me to see Ye Lao.”
Ye Linglong was stunned for a moment and said with an odd expression on her face, “Why don’t we just not go? Grandpa feels embarra*sed to see me now, let alone you, and he was hugging you that day and saying all those things.”
Chen Dong shrugged his shoulders, his eyes deep and quirky as he smiled, “It just so happens that I have something I want to ask him as well.”
Ye Linglong could only agree to do so.
With Yuan Yigang’s help, she allowed Chen Dong to sit on the wheelchair, before the three of them headed to Ye Yuanqiu’s residence together.
The door to the silent residence was tightly closed.
Ye Linglong opened the gate carefully.
After entering the courtyard, the three of them headed straight for the bedroom.
As soon as they entered the door, they heard the commotion.
Ye Yuanqiu inside the house then suddenly burst out, “Go out and ignore the old man.”
“Grandpa ……,” Ye Linglong shouted.
Ye Yuanqiu’s voice suddenly became sad: “Alas …… Linglong ah, grandfather this is yellow earth buried to the head, froze late in life.”
Chen Dong rubbed his nose and smiled, “Elder Ye, I am Chen Dong, can I come in?”
In the room, there was a silence for three seconds.
Suddenly Ye Yuanqiu’s voice exploded, “Linglong, take Chen Dong away, don’t see him, I don’t see him!”
The atmosphere, all of a sudden, was awkward.
Chen Dong collected his smile and said solemnly, “I was going to ask you, who is the slave?”
