Fu Liu took Qingfeng Li into the banquet hall.
"Hmm, thank you."
Qingfeng Li expressed thanks. If Fu Liu didn’t lead him, he wouldn’t have found the location. Of course, he needed to express his thanks.
"You’re very kind sir. I’ll have to attend to the other guests. Please call me anytime if you need anything."
Fu Liu politely smiled, turned around and left.
"The banquet is not bad."
Qingfeng Li entered the banquet hall and exclaimed.
The banquet hall was on the 22nd floor of the Green Hotel, covering more than 1000 square meters. Whether it be walls, floors, or ceilings, they were paved with crystals and emitted a bright glow.
There was champagne, bottles of wine, cakes, cheese and fruits in the hall.
Handsome gentlemen and beautiful ladies, billionaires and CEOs alike were drinking wine and talking to each other in knots.
"Huh, is that Jun Li?"
Xue Lin gazed at the man, showing surprise on her cold and beautiful face.
Hearing Xue Lin’s words, Qingfeng Li turned around and saw a man in his 20s talking to a beautiful lady nearby.
"Is Jun Li very famous?" Qingfeng Li asked.
"You don't know who Jun Li is?" Xue Lin had an odd look in her eyes and showed a touch of surprise on her cold face.
"Why should I know who Jun Li is?"
"He’s one of the Young Masters of Eastern Sea city, one of the most capable four young men."
"Oh, what does that have to do with me?" Qingfeng Li curled his lips with disdain on the face.
"Ay, didn’t you realize you are both surnamed Li?" Xue Lin pat on her white forehead, disappointed.
"Could he be from the Li Family? But our family is huge and has thousands of people. I can’t possibly know everybody."
"Well, you have a point there. Jun Li is from the Li Family in Jing Capital. He owns a real estate company in Eastern Sea City and has a powerful background."
Xue Lin glanced at Qingfeng Li in disappointment and told him about the Li Family.
Supposedly, Qingfeng Li, from the direct line of descent of the Li Family should be familiar with the family. But now, he didn’t even know any of the major figures of the Li Family.
In fact, Qingfeng Li couldn’t be blamed. He left the family when he was 8 and spent more than a decade abroad. He only got back a few days ago and didn’t know anyone else except his two uncles in the family.
Qingfeng Li had no memory of this so-called Jun Li at all. Who knew if he was his older cousin or younger cousin.
"It seems that you don’t know a lot of the people in the charity banquet." Xue Lin frowned and asked.
"Ya, I don't know any of them."
"I'll introduce them to you in case you don't know the people you meet later."
"Alright, go ahead."
"See, the woman talking to Jun Li is Ting Chen, the sister of Young Master Chen. To his left is Xiang Xu, the boss of the Ten-Thousand Elephant Real Estate company. To the right is Song Hu, boss of Everyday Entertainment. Behind is…" Xue Lin pointed the crowd in the hall and introduced them to Qingfeng Li.
Every one of them was a big name in Eastern Sea City. They were CEOs in different industries: real estate, entertainment, communications, jewelry. In addition, there were rich second-generation and socialites alike.
In short, those who attended the charity banquet were the upper class in Eastern Sea City. the top of the social pyramid.
In Xue Lin’s explanation, Qingfeng Li knew that these people had at least a 500 million fortune. tHE Ice Snow Corporation seemed to be at the bottom among them.
There was a set index for the banquet. One must have at least 500 million fortune to attend. Of course, some officers were excluded. For example, special people like mayors and directors.
The reason why the Qingfeng Li could come in was simply because of the Platinum card.
"Honey, are you hungry? Let’s eat something."
Listening to Xue Lin’s explanation, Qingfeng Li smiled faintly and said.
"Hmm, I’m a bit hungry."
As Qingfeng Li said it, Xue Lin realized she was a bit hungry as well.
The two got off work at 6 PM and came here directly. They hadn’t eaten dinner, plus they worked for a whole day. Naturally, they were hungry.
"What are you waiting for? Go ahead."
Taking two pieces of cakes nearby, Qingfeng Li passed one to Xue Lin and began to devour the cake.
In a moment, Qingfeng Li finished his cake. When he was about to get another one, a sarcastic voice sounded.
"Yo, isn’t it our Li Family’s elder child? Never ate cakes before? Poor thing."
Young Master Li came to Qingfeng Li, with sarcasm and disdain plastered on his face.
People in the Li Family had unfavorable feelings towards Qingfeng Li, because his parents disappeared since he was young and he had been living abroad. He was the oldest son of the Li Family. Once he returned, he would inherit the property of Li Family. Naturally, people in the Li Family disliked him.
Hearing this sarcastic voice, Qingfeng Li looked up and found a short-hair handsome young man with an aquiline nose. His eyes had an evil look. Obviously, he wasn’t a good guy.
This short hair young man was none other than Jun Li, also known as Young Master Li. Xue Lin told Qingfeng Li before, so he recognized him at a glance.
He didn’t have the slightest favorable feeling towards Li Family.
"You didn't brush your teeth in the morning, did you?"
Qingfeng Li slightly frowned and said to Young Master Li.
"Of course I did, what do you mean?"
Young Master Li flashed a hint of doubt, not understanding what Qingfeng Li meant.
"Your mouth stinks, so you probably didn’t brush your teeth in the morning."
Qingfeng Li smiled faintly, what he said left Young Master Li’s face livid.
After all the fuss, Qingfeng Li was humiliating him.
"Haha, Young Master Li, you were insulted too." Suddenly, a disdainful voice came.
It was none other than Young Master Chen. He came in with Young Master Wang, and happened to hear that Qingfeng Li was laughing at Young Master Li. Then Young Master Chen burst into laughter.
"Young Master Chen, what do you mean?"
Young Master Li felt he was laughed at, showing a little dissatisfaction with his face.
"Don’t be angry Young Master Li. Young Master Wang and I were also insulted by this guy. He has a sharp tongue and insults people without swearing."
Seeing Young Master Li was about to flip out, Young Master Chen explained, smiling.
"Brother, so you were scolded by this guy too?" Suddenly, the beautiful companion beside Young Master Li said with surprise.
This lady had a pretty face, snow white skin and wore lipstick. She was slim, and could definitely fit the description of a beauty with some charms.
Of course, she was far off compared to Xue Lin.
She was Ting Chen, sister of Young Master Chen and the current girlfriend of Young Master Li
Now that her brother and boyfriend were scolded, she was a bit angry of course.
"Brother, this guy dares to scold you. You should teach him a lesson."
Ting Chen stretched out her right hand, pointed at Qingfeng Li and said viciously.
