Chapter 196 A Jealous Man
Cao Ting had forbidden junk food for Long Xiaobao because he was in bad health. So she said to the girl giving the popcorns, “Thanks but we can’t accept that.”
“It’s fine. Just some popcorns. Save it for the kids.”
The woman said as she took one step further and handed over the popcorn.
“Thank you, but we can’t accept that.” Cao Ting was refusing. She said to Long Xiaobao, “Say thanks to her.”
“Thank you, but I don’t want it,” Long Xiaobao listened to his mom and said.
“Just take it, kid. It’s delicious.”
When she was saying that, her wrist shook and pour all the popcorn on Zhu Linlin and Long Xiaobao. At the same time, the hand she hid under the popcorn was revealed. She had a reflecting dagger in her hand.
Cao Ting and Long Xiaobao totally panicked. Before they figured out what was going on, the dagger in the girl’s hand was heading to Long Xiaobao’s neck.
She was moving fast and relentlessly. Long Xiaobao could be killed within seconds. Cao Ting was just a normal person, and she had totally panicked out, freezing like a statue.
It was already too late when Dafei and his fellows found out what was happening. It was too late for them to go over and save. They could do nothing but stand there and watch.
At the moment, a big hand reached out and grabbed the killer’s wrist. The tip of the had already touched Long Xiaobao’s neck, but no matter how the killer pulled the dagger, it wouldn’t go any further.
It was Qin Haodong. He never tolerated anyone going after a kid. As he grabbed harder, the scary cracking sound came out of her bone. He had crumbled the killer’s right hands. The dagger dropped on the ground.
Seeing the killer under control, everybody felt relieved; however, things changed again. The man behind the girl, who had been keeping silent for the whole time, suddenly moved.
Everybody’s attention had been caught by Long Xiaobao. The man raised his hand and pointed a black pistol to Long Haisheng’s head. It was a killer couple, obviously, and Long Haisheng was the one they were going after.
Actually, their tricks had worked out. Dafei and his fellows were being around Long Haisheng but at the moment when Long Xiaobao was endangered, everybody was moving towards him. Long Haisheng was temporarily unprotected.
When the relentless young man was just about to pull the trigger, a whip was swiped to him like a snake. The pistol had been swiped into the air before it fired, and its bullets had nowhere to be found.
Before the young man could react, Saber had stricken him on the neck and knocked him on the ground.
Whip and Saver had been around Qin Haodong. The two had gained lots of experience when working as mercenaries. When the girl moved, they immediately noticed the man. So they moved and saved Long Haisheng just in time.
At the same time, Qin Haodong swiped his leg and knocked the woman on the ground. Dafei and his fellows rushed over and brought her under control.
The gunshot made a mess. The policeman patrolling around had come. They cuffed the two killers after figuring out what had happened. Then they escort them into the patrol wagon.
After all they had been through, Long Haisheng’s expression stayed the same, which was how the head of a gang should really be like. He acted like it was someone else who was under assassination.
However, Cao Ting and Long Xiaobao totally freaked out. Long Xiaobao was totally dumbfounded and didn’t wake up until Qin Haodong used Green Wood Genuine Qi to help him.
Long Haisheng felt so relieved when seeing his son went back to normal. He asked Qin Haodong, “Buddy, we owe you this time, and that will be two times in total.”
“It’s fine, just a piece of cake.” Qin Haodong asked, “Who’s the two? Why are they going after you?”
Long Haisheng said, “I am a man of the underworld, but we have our own rules. I don’t allow any drug deal within my realm, and that must have prevented someone from making money,”
“Days ago, someone approached me. They offered me 100 million in exchange for my permission for drug deals in the underworld of Jiangnan City. I turned them down. I guess they just can’t wait and send the two killers to me.”
Qin Haodong nodded. Long Haisheng was a tough guy. He had turned down the temptation of a 100-million deal. He said, “Mr. Long. I’ll back you up on that. Just tell me should you need any help.”
“Do not worry, I can take it by myself,” said Long Haisheng, “Let’s go out for a drink after the concert.”
After that, he took Long Xiaobao and Cao Ting into the stadium and go on to watch the concert, with Dafei and other bodyguards surrounding.
The accidents had been put aside as the audiences growing. Few people knew what had happened just now.
After what they had been through, Qin Haodong and Long Haisheng were even closer. Long Haisheng was so grateful for Qin Haodong and Qin Haodong had known more about Long Haisheng.
When Long Haisheng left, Qin Haodong thought it for a while. He found that there were too many people at the site, making it easier for troublemakers to get in. Security should always come first.
So he let Zhang Tieniu and other people took over his work, and then he entered the stadium. The most important thing for him now was to keep the little fellow safe.
The tickets for the concert were more than welcome today. The seats located closest to the stage charged for 5000 yuan, but they had already been sold out.
Qin Haodong chose a suitable position between the VIP seats and the stage, so that he could watch what was going on on the stage and wouldn’t influence other audiences.
At the moment, a man and a woman came in, sitting right next to Qin Haodong.
The woman was about twenty. She looked slim with shoulder-length hair. Her skirt barely covered her hips. She was grabbing an LV purse. She looked pretty with her heart-shaped face, but the make-up on her face was too heavy, which had covered her original beauty.
The man was in his thirties. He looked short and fat, with a big belly. He might not even be able to saw his own “stuff” when he took a leak.
The guy was wrapped in designer brands which looked quite expensive. He had three big diamond rings and a million-dollar Omega golden watch on his wrist. He was holding the woman in his right arm and his left hand was trying to feel every inch of her lap. That was a typical old goat.
The two were sitting and flirting like no one else was around. At the moment the woman raised her head and saw Qin Haodong in the corner. She screamed out, “Is that you?”
Qin Haodong turned to the voice and saw the woman’s face. The memory of this body’s last owner emerged in his mind.
A year ago, Qin Haodong held a large bouquet of red rose, standing in front of Liu Yuqing, saying in excitement, “I love you, Yuqing. Please be my girlfriend!”
Liu Yuqing’s reaction was out of Qin Haodong’s expectation. She glared with a resentful expression like she had been insulted. Then she said hysterically, “Qin Haodong, seriously? People like you dare to confess your love to me?!”
Qin Haodong was recognized as the most handsome guy at the college. He was a top student, and was quite proud of himself. He was totally dumbfounded when Liu Yuqing turned him down. He stayed there and had no idea what he should do.
Liu Yuqing and he were classmates. The two had lots of common interests and they talked a lot. Sometimes they made private jokes.
He thought they would work it out before, and all it would take was a confession. It had never occurred to him that things would end up like this.
Seeing Qin Haodong, dumbfounded, Liu Yuqing asked disdainfully, “You’re pursuing me? Do you even have an apartment in Jiangnan City?”
Qin Haodong shook his head and answered, “No!”
“Do you have a BMW?”
“Over one million deposit?”
“Then what makes you think you can pursue me?” Liu Yuqing said with pride, “A rich guy was pursuing me right now. He had more than 100 million and more than ten apartments in Jiangnan City. How are you his match? Who will you choose if you’re in my position?”
Qin Haodong said, “Yuqing, relationships are about love, why are you being so snobby？”
Liu Yuqing said, “I’m a beautiful woman. Beauty to women is like wealth to men. It’s a gift. Now that I was endowed with the gift, I should make full use of it and make plans for my future.”
Qin Haodong gradually realized it and he finally saw through the beautiful and innocent woman. She was quite a snob and would never care about his feelings and self-esteem.
He raised his hand and tossed the roses into the trash can on the curb. Then he said coldly, “Liu Yuqing, I think love is more important than money no matter how. You can always earn money, but you can never buy love.”
“Don’t despise a young man. I wasn’t born rich, but I can make myself rich.”
Liu Yuqing sneered and said, “You think that will be easy? People like you can’t possibly be rich, not in this life!”
Qin Haodong smiled lightly after he recalled that. He thought he was so bad-taste before, and wondered why would he bare his love to such a woman.”
Qin Haodong’s mood no longer swung when he saw the snobby woman again. He said lightly, “Liu Yuqing, what a surprise.”
The fat guy looked at Qin Haodong and his expression turned cold. Women got jealous, so did man when every time they saw other men that were more handsome than themselves, especially the guy was too much handsome, and seemed to have an affair with his woman.
He asked, “Yuqing, who is he?”
Liu Yuqing explained in haste, “Don’t overthink about it, honey. He was just one of my pursuers, but I turned him down. He lost me to you.”
“Oh! He is that poor guy that you ever told me who didn’t even know how poor he was!”
The fat guy’s expression eased down after he heard Liu Yuqing’s explanation.
Qin Haodong was a little bit pissed off, and his expression turned cold, too. The woman had crossed the line. They were classmates anyway. It was unnecessary to despise him to flatter her man.
Liu Yuqing had seen Qin Haodong’s expression change. She asked disdainfully, “What? Am I wrong? The rightest thing I’ve ever done in my life was denying you and choosing Ziming, or I might be living a poor life with you now.”
