Chapter 320 Hard to Guess
Lin Momo and Che Xiaoxiao went out of the bathroom and entered a vacant private adjacent room.
Lin Momo uttered, “Xiaoxiao, I don’t think you should be with Wang Dacheng anymore. He’s so unreliable.”
Che Xiaoxiao argued, “Momo, I told you that you were biased. You used to say that he was messing with me and he wouldn’t be back, but now he’s back here to fulfill his promise. He said I’m his only love, and I think he means it.”
“Well…” Lin Momo didn’t know what to say. She couldn’t just dump everything on her girlfriend’s face and tell her that Wang Dazhi had expressed his love to her.
“Xiaoxiao, how can you not tell? Wang Dacheng has been using you.”
“Using me?” Che Xiaoxiao giggled. “I’m now all by myself. My parents are dead, and my family’s status has declined. I don’t have enough money to be deceived, and I’m glad if he’s trying to take advantage of me. How is he using me?
Besides, Dacheng just registered assets worth billions under my name. You call that using someone?”
Deep down, Lin Momo had always felt that Wang Dacheng was unreliable and untrustworthy. However, she now couldn’t find the proper reasoning to argue. She was wondering why Wang Dacheng would register an enterprise worth billions under Che Xiaoxiao’s name.
“Momo, I know you’re doing this for me, but Da Cheng loves me. I can feel that,” Che Xiaoxiao said, “Let’s talk about you. I don’t think you and the young doctor will work. He’s a nice, very talented guy, but I don’t think he’s been fully exclusive.”
After speaking, she took out her phone and showed the photo Wang Dacheng had given her to Lin Momo.
“See? Momo, he is not being exclusive at all. He must have a bunch of hoes on the side.” Che Xiaoxiao slid through the photos and exclaimed, “I have to say he’s quite a catch! These women are all beautiful. How did he do it?”
She looked at Lin Momo, who she thought would go insane after seeing these photos. However, Lin Momo said calmly, “I know all of them. I know what is between them and Haodong. I just don’t care.”
Che Xiaoxiao was shocked. “What? Momo, have you lost your mind? Did he brain-wash you?”
“I am not losing my mind, nor have I been brain-washed,” Lin Momo snapped at her, “Haodong is my one true love. He would sacrifice everything for me, even his own life. That’s all a woman can ask for. Nothing matters more than that.”
“Well, as long as you don’t regret this…” Che Xiaoxiao said and shook her head. She was quite confused. “You used to say that I was a fool, but you turned out to be more of a fool than me.”
Lin Momo smiled grudgingly because she knew that neither of them could convince the other. Their choices would prove to be wrong or right as time went by.
When the four of them were back at the table, the mood had slightly changed. Che Xiaoxiao was no longer as excited as she had been earlier. Istead, she seemed quite depressed.
Wang Dacheng told Che Xiaoxiao, “Xiaoxiao, why don’t we just call it a day? We got a press conference to attend at 14:30 about the establishment of the Hall of Medical Fame. We should go back and get ready for it. You’ll open it as the president!”
Che Xiaoxiao nodded and told Lin Momo and Qin Haodong, “Let’s call it a day. I’d like to do this again someday.”
The four of them left the hotel and hopped in their cars.
Lin Momo asked Qin Haodong, “What is Wang Dacheng up to? Does he really love her?”
Qin Haodong said, “Not exactly, I think, but I can’t figure out what is wrong.”
“That’s right! Wang Dacheng is a very selfish man who has been using Xiaoxiao, yet he suddenly registered his companies under Xiaoxiao’s name. That’s very confusing.”
Qin Haodong said, “We should quit thinking and wait for the man to expose his intentions by himself.”
Lin Momo sighed and said, “I hope he is being nice to Xiaoxiao. That girl’s already having a hard time.”
Qin Haodong asked, “Xiaoxiao got you alone and told you something else outside, right?”
Lin Momo answered. “She showed me a lot of photos of you with Wan’er, Xiaoxian, Wushuang, and Wuxia. She said I should leave you.”
“Ah?” Qin Haodong smiled awkwardly and said, “So she’s been stalking me and taking candid shots?”
“I know her well. She didn’t take those photos. She’s just trying to warn me so that I’m not fooled by a handsome man like you.”
As she spoke, she ogled at Qin Haodong, holding his arms even tighter.
Qin Haodong said, “If she didn’t take the photos, then it must have been Wang Dacheng. That guy still has a crush on you.”
“Who knows? He was too calculating for me back at school. Now, he’s even harder to read.”
Qin Haodong said, “He established the Hall of Medical Fame and the Chinese medicine factory surprisingly fast. What’s he up to? Is this really about money?”
Lin Momo seemed unsure as she said, “Probably. Maybe he envies our Blood Revival Elixir and wants to earn a fortune in the industry.”
Qin Haodong said, “I feel like he wants more than that. He must be plotting something.”
Lin Momo said, “That’s unlikely. His family invested a large sum of money this time, and they will definitely want it back. Plus, what if he’s plotting something? Would he really be able to hurt our business?”
Qin Haodong said, “I can’t tell, but we should be careful all the time.”
While they were talking about Wang Dacheng, Wang Dacheng and Che Xiaoxiao were talking about them.
“Xiaoxiao, did you give Momo the photos? She didn’t seem to react much.”
Che Xiaoxiao said, “I showed them to her and said what you told me. She’s way too stupid. She said she knows what’s between Qin Haodong and these women but doesn’t give a hoot.”
“Uh…” Wang Dacheng, who was shocked, suddenly felt jealous. How could Qin Haodong possess the charm to make Lin Momo love him so much that she’d be willing to share him with other women?
“Anything wrong?” Che Xiaoxiao asked. She sensed something different about Wang Dacheng.
“Nothing!” Wang Dacheng quickly calmed down and added, “I’m just surprised by the way she reacted.”
“Yeah, me too. She used to call me silly. That’s rich,” Che Xiaoxiao said, “She told me to be cautious of you and said you were using me.”
Wang Dacheng’s expression changed slightly as he asked, “What did you say? Do you trust her?”
“Momo is my best friend. Of course I trust her,” Che Xiaoxiao said before she stuck out her tongue, “But I’ve thought about it. If you were fooling me now, I’d allow it. I don’t have much money and I’m not that hot. I’d take a booty call with you!”
She then giggled. She apparently didn’t understand Lin Momo’s words at all.
A hidden pride flashed over Wang Dacheng’s eyes as he said, “We’d better hurry. The press conference will be launched right away. I’ve invited plenty of journalists from all kinds of organizations.”
Che Xiaoxiao said, “It’s fine. I’m not afraid of anything as long as you’re with me.”
At 14:00 o’clock in the afternoon, in the newly purchased Chinese medicine factory, Wang Dacheng and Che Xiaoxiao launched the first press conference.
Besides the two of them, on the podium were Fu Longhai from Xuanhu Clinic and Liu Baikun from Jishi Hall. The two old men, who were wearing robes and had white hair and beards, were acting the way real famous doctors should act like. Other Chinese medicine practitioners that had joined the Hall of Medical Fame were below the podium.
At the beginning of the press conference, Wang Dacheng announced the establishment of the Celestial Land Hall of Medical Fame and its Chinese medicine factory. He had Che Xiaoxiao show the business licenses of the two companies to the journalists.
“Mr. Wang, my question is, now that you’re investing in the traditional Chinese medicine industry, why is Miss Che the legal representative of both companies?”
Wang Dacheng smiled at Che Xiaoxiao and she smiled back. Then, he explained, “She’s the love of my life and my future wife. What’s mine is hers, so it doesn’t matter which one of us is the person in charge.”
Another journalist said, “Mr. Wang, as far as I know, Haitian group mainly engaged in real estate and finance before. Why are you marching into the traditional Chinese medicine industry all of a sudden?”
Wang Dacheng said, “I’ve been abroad for five years, but the Celestial Land is my home. I’ve been thinking about ways to contribute to it ever since I came back. I find the traditional Chinese medicine industry a good choice. My investment will be able to promote our culture and show great potential.
Thus, I’ve decided to enter the Chinese medicine industry to make Chinese medicine stronger. I’ll show the world that it’s as great as western medicine.”
After his speech, the audience immediately responded with thunderous applause.
“Mr. Wang, may I ask what the major business of the Hall of Medical Fame will be? In what aspects will it promote the development of Chinese medicine?”
Wang Dacheng said, “Our slogan is, ‘save everyone that needs to be saved’!
After its establishment, the major business of the Hall of Medical Fame will include two parts. One will be pro bono large-scale diagnosis in Jiangnan City and treatment of the people who can’t afford the fee. We’ll launch lectures joined by famous doctors to help people stay healthy and promote healthy conditions.
In addition, I am a businessman who needs to make profit. The other business of the Hall of Medical Fame will be to develop the Chinese medicine industry and strive for better medicine that will ease the patients’ pain and bring large profits to our company.”
“Mr. Wang, does your investment in the industry have something to do with the great success of Tangmen Chinese Medicine Company? Will you be able to develop a medicine that’s as good as the Blood Revival Elixir?”
Wang Dacheng said, “I’ve wanted to invest in the industry for a long time. It has always been my dream to promote its development. This has nothing to do with anybody else. I’ve got confidence in the Hall of Medical Fame, and we’ll definitely develop a medicine that’s as good as the Blood Revival Elixir of Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company.”
“Mr. Wang, the Blood Revival Elixir can cure leukemia. You seem pretty sure about that.”
Wang Dacheng said confidently, “I should be. Soon, you’ll witness the rise of the Celestial Land Hall of Medical Fame.”
“Mr. Wang, as far as I know, it’s Qin Haodong, the Medical Sage, who developed the Blood Revival Elixir. Why are you so confident?”
“Because of the members of the Hall of Medical Fame.” Wang Dacheng pointed at the famous doctors sitting below the podium and said, “All of them have been hired by our company. Let’s wait and see if they can do better than the Medical Sage!”
