Chapter 298 Commercial Espionage
When the middle-aged man saw that everything had been revealed, he simply shut up.
Lin Momo was really angry. She never scolded people, but she couldn’t bear it this time.
Qin Haodong patted her on the shoulder and comforted her by saying, “Don’t worry, let me handle it.”
He turned to the middle-aged man and directly used Mind-Manipulation. “Tell me, who are you? Who asked you to come here?”
After a hint of confusion flashed through the eyes of the middle-aged man, he said honestly, “My name is Kim Lunhai, and I’m from Koryo. I have been working as a financial spy all over the world for years. This time, James hired me to come to China.”
“James is the foreigner who would not give up.”
Qin Haodong sneered and asked, “What is his purpose for making you come to China?”
“First, he helped me change my appearance, and then he gave me a document that allowed me to pretend to be a Chinese man named Tang Long, Lin Momo’s old lover and her daughter’s father.
He asked me to gain Lin Momo’s trust and enter Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company. If I got the formula of the Blood Revival Oral Liquid, he would give me a commission of 100 million yuan. If I got the formula and also destroyed Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company, he would give me a commission of 200 million yuan.”
Qin Haodong nodded. His theory had been similar, but James was even more aggressive. He not only wanted to take the formula, but he also wanted to bring down Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company.
He fiddled with the mask in his hand and asked, “What is this? How was it made?”
Kim Lunhai said, “It’s the mask James gave me. I heard it’s made of high-tech nanomaterials created by 3D printing technology. As long as it’s on my face, no one can detect it…”
Qin Haodong turned to Lin Momo and said, “Do you have anything else to ask?”
Lin Momo shook her head. Qin Haodong had already asked everything. “What are you going to do with this man?”
“You put Tang Tang back to sleep!” Qin Haodong said, “James is still conspiring against me. I want to have a nice chat with him.”
He dragged Kim Lunhai into his study, turned on his computer, and video-called James’ phone. The phone rang for a long time before it was connected. James’ big face appeared on the computer screen.
He was lying naked in bed. Beside him was a plump foreign woman that looked like a big cow.
James patted the woman’s butt, motioned for her to leave, and then told Qin Haodong, “Qin, you disturbed my important business meeting.”
As a world-renowned financial magnate, he had already recovered his former calmness, as if he had not been defeated by Qin Haodong a few days ago.
Qin Haodong smiled and said, “I have a gift for you. Would you like to see it?”
Then, he pulled Kim Lunhai in front of the camera.
James was shocked to see Kim Lunhai, who had already revealed his true face. Eventually, he said, “Qin, your excellence has exceeded my expectations. Can you tell me how you saw through him?”
The 3D nanotechnology mask, which he had bought for millions of dollars, was the latest technological product. After one put it on, it could hardly be noticed. He had even asked several experts to identify Kim Lunhai, but no one had faced any problems.
He wondered how such a good mask that used new technology could have been detected by the young man.
In fact, by making Kim Lunhai pretend to be someone else, he may have gotten through without attracting Qin Haodong’s attention. Unfortunately, he had made Kim Lunhai pretend to be Tang Long, who had been Qin Haodong’s identity before his reincarnation. How could they not fail?
Qin Haodong, of course, would not tell him the secret. Instead, he said, “I can recognize at first glance such a low-level product. Please make something fancier in the future. Do not use these childish things again.”
James stroked his head and said, “Qin, I really appreciate you. You should work for me. I can give you enough money to squander all your life. As far as your formula is concerned, why bother setting up a factory? Sell it to me! I’ll pay more than you can make by running a factory.”
Qin Haodong said in a cold voice, “James, drop that idea. I’m warning you, stop dreaming of getting the formula of the Blood Revival Oral Liquid in the future, or you’ll end up like him.”
A cold light flashed in his eyes as he lifted his leg and kicked the chest of Kim Lunhai, who spewed out a mouthful of blood and fell to the ground without even screaming.
“Did you kill him?”
James asked. Qin Haodong’s ruthlessness and determination had exceeded his expectations.
Qin Haodong kicked Kim Lunhai’s body aside and answered fiercely. “If you trouble me again, I’ll kill you as well!”
James looked at him with a strange smile. Then, he shook his head and hung up the phone.
Qin Haodong made two more phone calls before going back to the living room, making himself a cup of tea, and drinking it slowly.
“Haodong, why aren’t you sleeping yet?”
Lin Momo came out of her bedroom and sat beside Qin Haodong.
Qin Haodong took her in his arms and said, “There’s no need to hurry. Guests will be coming soon!”
“Guests? What guests? It’s really late. How can any guests be coming?”
Qin Haodong smiled mysteriously and said, “I guess they will be.”
“You are enigmatic!” Lin Momo rolled her eyes prettily and said, “Haodong, if you hadn’t recognized that fake man today, I really wouldn’t have known what to do.
Before I met you, I fantasized every day about Tang Tang’s dad appearing so that I could give my daughter a complete family. Now that you are here, I really don’t want that person to come again. Every day, I worry about what I would do if he really appeared. After all, Tang Tang is his biological daughter. I can’t prevent their reunion.”
Qin Haodong smiled slightly, put his arm around her tightly, and said, “Don’t worry. I promise you that this will never happen.”
What a joke! He was Tang Tang’s biological father, so any other pop-up father was bound to be fake.
Although Lin Momo did not know why Qin Haodong was so confident, she nodded trustfully.
Qin Haodong kissed her on the cheek and said, “Go back to sleep. You have to go to work tomorrow!”
“Won’t you sleep?”
“I’ll have to wait a little longer. I’ll go to bed if no guests arrive.”
Qin Haodong took Lin Momo up and led her back to his bedroom. After covering her up with the quilt, he went back to the living room to continue drinking tea.
When he had almost finished drinking the pot of tea, there was suddenly a riot outside the villa. More than a dozen policemen rushed into the villa and directly pointed their guns at Qin Haodong.
The leading middle-aged policeman shouted, “Don’t move! Raise your hands!”
Qin Haodong put down his teacup, looked up at the middle-aged policeman, and said with a smile, “Your efficiency is too low. You arrived ten minutes later than I expected.”
Lin Zhiyuan, who was upstairs, heard the movement and rushed out in his pajamas.
He approached the middle-aged policeman and said, “Director Liu, what happened?”
The middle-aged policeman, whose name was Liu Guohua and who was the deputy director of criminal investigation of East City Bureau, was acquainted with Lin Zhiyuan.
Liu Guohua said, “Boss Lin, I’m sorry to come to your house so late, but we have a duty. We are here to catch a murderer.”
“Murderer? How is that possible?” Lin Zhiyuan said, “Director Liu, is there a misunderstanding? How could we possibly have a murderer in our family?”
“It’s absolutely true. There’s no misunderstanding.” Liu Guohua pointed to Qin Haodong and said, “Who is this man?”
Lin Zhiyuan said, “This is my son-in-law.”
Liu Guohua said, “He is the killer. He just killed a man named Kim Lunhai from Koryo.”
Qin Haodong smiled slightly. “Director Liu, you are really powerful and worthy of being a policeman.
This man named Kim came to our house with the most advanced 3D nano-mask in the world and pretended to be Tang Long. I just exposed him. You even know his real name now. Do you know how I killed him?”
Liu Guohua was stiff for a while. Knowing he had made a slip of the tongue, he quickly said, “Don’t talk nonsense. You are the murderer. There’s no doubt about that.”
Then, he waved to the men behind him. “Handcuff him and take him away!”
Two policemen were about to handcuff Qin Haodong, when Qin Haodong said, “Wait a minute. Handcuffing me is not urgent. It’s not certain yet who will be handcuffed.”
He looked at Liu Guohua again, “Director Liu, did James call you and say I killed a man?”
Liu Guohua’s face changed again. He had a bad feeling in his heart.
“Don’t talk nonsense. I don’t know anyone called James!”
“Then how did you know about this murder?”
Qin Haodong’s tone was still flat.
“A civilian reported it to us!”
“A civilian accused me? Are you kidding? I’m at home. How could anyone possibly know that I committed murder?
Qin Haodong said, “Director Liu, you don’t have to deny it anymore. Just half an hour ago, James, the owner of Wilson Company in M Country, called you and promised that as long as you put me in prison, preferably for life, you would get 2 million dollars from him, right?”
“Er…” Liu Guohua’s face was full of surprise. This matter was extremely secret. How did Qin Haodong know about it?
Qin Haodong, who read his mind, added, “I know that James not only promised you two million dollars this time, but also remitted three million dollars to you seven times before. Am I right?”
“Nonsense! That’s slander!” Feeling indignant, Liu Guohua shouted at the two policemen, “Are you all dead? Why are you standing there foolishly? Handcuff him now!”
Only then did the two policemen come back to their senses and handcuff Qin Haodong. Suddenly, the door of Lin’s villa was opened again. Seven to eight people dressed in police inspector uniforms rushed in led by Yang Guozhong, the captain of the police inspector’s brigade of the Municipal Bureau.
When Yang Guozhong entered, he immediately stopped the two policemen who were about to handcuff Qin Haodong.
“Captain Yang, why are you here?”
Liu Guohua was both surprised and nervous. The duty of the police inspector was to supervise whether the police was impartial and honest in enforcing the law. It was possible that Yang Guozhong had not come to the Lin Villa for Qin Haodong, but for him.
Yang Guozhong waved his hand behind him and said in a cold voice, “Take his gun and handcuff him!”
The two wardens immediately stepped forward. They first took Liu Guohua’s pistol, and then put a pair of silver handcuffs on his wrists.
Qin Haodong looked at him with a smile and said, “Director Liu, wasn’t I right? The handcuffs were not exactly for me.”
