Chapter 438 A One Billion Compensation
Seeing General Li Site’s respectful attitude towards Qin Haodong, Ruan Zhendong and Ruan Zhannan were completely dumbfounded. They were suddenly at a loss, not knowing what to do.
What they didn’t know was that, ever since General Li Site ate the Physique-Improving Pill left by Qin Haodong, his entire person seemed to be several decades younger. Therefore, he was grateful and respectful to the young man in front of him.
He had heard that there was a conflict between the Lutheran Society and Qin Haodong, so he immediately went there with people. Otherwise, just the face of the Lutheran Society wouldn’t have been enough for him to be there personally.
Qin Haodong said with a smile, “General, I’m fine. I was just talking with the two presidents.”
Li Site asked, “Doctor Qin, what on earth is going on? If the Lutheran Society made you suffer in any way, tell me and I will help you.”
After hearing that, Ruan Zhendong and Ruan Zhannan almost cried. “How could he have suffered? It had always been us, the Lutheran Society, who have suffered, okay?” They had suffered damage in strength, money, and coupled with the loss of face, they couldn’t have suffered more than they already had.
Currently, the excitement on the two men’s faces had disappeared. It had been an empty joy; it was obvious that General Li Site had gone there to support the man. That time the Lutheran Society would be completely over.
Qin Haodong said, “It’s like this General. I found a treasure at the raw gemstone exhibition today. It was a high-priced jade worth 1 billion US dollars. After the Lutheran Society found out about this, they stole it. Afterwards, I won some money in the boxing stadium of the Lutheran Society. In the end, they couldn’t afford to lose, so they sent someone again to steal it.
“I thought that the Lutheran Society had gone too far, so I came to their door to talk to the two presidents.”
After hearing that, General Li Site slapped the table and turned his head. He glared at Ruan Zhendong and Ruan Zhannan and said, “What are you two trying to do? Don’t you know that Doctor Qin is my distinguished guest? You still dare to steal from Mr. Qin? Hurry up and return what is his.”
The Ruan brothers’ faces showed utter misery. What did they steal that they had to return? They only stole a broken stone that wasn’t even worth a dime. They wanted to return it but he didn’t want it back!
Ruan Zhendong said with a bitter face, “General, there’s a misunderstanding. We didn’t know that Mr. Qin was your distinguished guest, otherwise we wouldn’t have dared to make a move on him, even if you beat us to death. Also, we really didn’t steal that piece of jade.”
“The car loaded with the jade is parked in your yard. This is called getting caught with the stolen goods.” Qin Haodong immediately showed a generous look, “How about this? I will be a little more generous. It doesn’t matter if you hid or lost the high-priced jade, I don’t care anymore. Just compensate me with money.”
Ruan Zhendong almost cried. In his heart, he thought, “how the fuck is this being generous? This is called stealing! We didn’t get his stuff at all. Why would we give him money?”
However, with the current situation, even Li Site was on Qin Haodong’s side. What else could they do? They had to pay the compensation, so they could only beg for Qin Haodong to settle for a smaller amount.
He said with a bitter face, “Mr. Qin, first of all, it is true that our Lutheran Society is in the wrong this time. We are willing to compensate you, it’s just that the price you ask for is so high that even if we disband our Lutheran Society, we would still be unable to get 7 billion yuan.”
7 billion yuan?
Li Site was startled after hearing that figure. As an old Jianghu man, he had basically understood the matter at hand. Qin Haodong was looking for trouble with the Lutheran Society.
In any case, the Lutheran Society would regularly hand over half of its income to him every year, so he couldn’t just watch and ignore it.
He said to Qin Haodong, “Mr. Qin, the Lutheran Society looks very beautiful on the surface. It earns a lot of money every year, but it also spends a lot of money. There are a lot of people in the gang, and every place needs to spend money. 7 billion yuan is really too much. They can’t afford it, at all. For my sake, can you allow them to pay a little less?”
“Okay then. Since the general spoke, I won’t argue with them anymore. The jade was picked up from the river anyways. I didn’t spend much money.”
Qin Haodong said to Ruan Zhendong, “Say it. How much money can you give me as compensation?”
Ruan Zhendong said, “To tell you the truth, we can’t afford to lose one billion US dollars even if we give up our last resources. How about this? Is it possible for us to pay you one billion yuan?”
After listening to him, Qin Haodong lowered his head and thought about it. From the financial situation of the Jade Gang, it could be seen that the Lutheran Society, that was part of one of the three major gangs, was really unable to come up with that much money.
The main purpose of his visit to the Lutheran Society was to establish his power. Asking for money came second. Since the goal had been achieved, they probably wouldn’t dare to think about the jade in the future, even if the Ruan brothers were given 100 more brave people.
After considering, he nodded and said, “Okay. I’m not a greedy person. For General Li Site’s sake, one billion yuan it is.”
Ruan Zhendong’s heart was dripping with blood. Qin Haodong had already won 150 million US dollars, which was 1 billion yuan. In the end, Ruan Zhendong would have to pay him 1 billion yuan, and Qin Haodong made it look as if he were very reluctant. “I’m a gangster, not a banker!”
However, he only dared to think about that in his heart, and didn’t dare to show it. He feared that Qin Haodong would tear down his Lutheran Society if he became unhappy.
Li Site breathed a sigh of relief. Although he was on Qin Haodong’s side, he didn’t want to make it too difficult for the Lutheran Society. After all, he would have to rely on them to make money for him in the future.
He said, “This is the best way. I will act as a middleman for you. Let’s turn over to a new chapter. We will all be friends in the future when we meet again.”
In the end, Ruan Zhendong wrote a check for one billion yuan to Qin Haodong, as compensation from the Lutheran Society.
After that day’s incident, the Lutheran Society lost its strength and no longer had any advantage among the three gangs. Moreover, the two billion yuan almost completely drained their cash flow. In that aspect, they weren’t as good as the Jade Gang and the White Wolf Gang. It would take some time for them to fully recover.
After the matter was dealt with, Qin Haodong returned to his residence with the others. That day, he had been very successful. Not only had he gained 2 billion yuan, but he had also weakened the strength of the Lutheran Society. The most important thing was that he had set up his own WeChat among the three major gangs in Myanmar. No one dared to think about making a move against his business anymore.
Shortly after he returned, Saber went in to announce that Ge Chunqiu wanted to see him.
“What is that geezer doing here? Is he not having fun being a sparring partner?”
Qin Haodong said, “Let him in.”
Soon, Saber took Ge Chunqiu inside. The geezer had vomited several mouthfuls of blood during the day, therefore his spirit seemed to be in a terrible state.
“What can I do for you geezer? Did you enjoy the fight too much just now and want to fight again?”
“No more! No more fighting!” Ge Chunqiu waved his hand repeatedly and said with a panicked expression, “I’ve come to see Mr. Qin. I have something to ask of you.”
“Something to ask from me? Tell me, what’s the matter?”
Ge Chunqiu said, “Mr. Qin, I can see that you’re an expert. I’ve been stuck in the half-step supreme power realm for more than a decade now. I’m clearly at the threshold, but I just can’t get past it. As long as you can help me break through the bottleneck of the supreme power realm, my old life will be yours in the future.”
It turned out that the geezer was completely convinced by Lin Momo that day. At the same time, he had also realized a problem. Lin Momo’s cultivation didn’t seem to have been achieved from hard work; rather, there was a talented person who had helped her to advance. That person was probably the young man next to her.
Since Qin Haodong could help an ordinary person become a generation’s supreme power realm, there had to be a way to help him break through.
Qin Haodong looked at him. The geezer was pretty smart. Qin Haodong said, “To tell you the truth, I can help you. However, you and I are neither relatives nor friends. Why should I help you?”
When he heard that Qin Haodong could really help him break through the bottleneck, Ge Chunqiu’s beard and eyebrows jumped as he hurriedly said, “Mr. Qin, as long as you can help me break through, I will be at your disposal for the rest of my life.”
Qin Haodong thought for a moment and said, “How about this? I will help you break through, then afterwards, you will stay in Myanmar. I’ve opened a new jade mine here. You will help me guard my property.”
Ge Chunqiu said, “Don’t worry Mr. Qin. If you want me to stay in Myanmar, then I will never leave.”
Qin Haodong was very satisfied with the geezer’s attitude. With a flick of his finger, a big Spirit Culturing Pill fell into Ge Chunqiu’s hand.
“Swallow it. I will help you break through now.”
Ge Chunqiu knew that if Qin Haodong didn’t have to go through so much trouble if he wanted to kill him, so Ge Chunqiu didn’t hesitate to gulp down the pill in his mouth. Then, he sat cross-legged on the ground and begun to summon his power to break through.
With the help of the Spirit Culturing Pill, his Genuine Qi had suddenly doubled. It crazily rushed towards the bottleneck of the supreme power realm.
Qin Haodong sat next to him and watched for a long time. In his heart, he thought that the geezer’s aptitude was really terrible. No wonder he was still in the half-step supreme power realm after having cultivated all his life. He couldn’t break through even after taking a big Spirit Culturing Pill.
Qin Haodong shook his head gently. He went and stood behind Ge Chunqiu, then slapped him hard on the middle of his back.
Ge Chunqiu was trying his best to break through when suddenly, there was a clicking sound in his head. It was as if something had broken. Immediately after, his Genuine Qi skyrocketed, as his aura suddenly increased.
The supreme power realm. He finally broke through!
Feeling the strength of the supreme power realm, Ge Chunqiu was so excited that he even burst into tears. He had worked hard all his life and had been unable to cross that threshold. With Qin Haodong’s help, it took him only half an hour to break through.
Qin Haodong said, “Don’t cry geezer. You’re crying in my room in the middle of the night. It’s as if I did something to you. If someone saw you, they might think that I have some sort of odd habit.”
Ge Chunqiu raised his hand and wiped away his tears. Then, he plopped onto his knees in front of Qin Haodong, “Mr. Qin, please accept me as an apprentice.”
“Stop it. At your age, I don’t want an old apprentice like you.” As soon as Qin Haodong waved his hand, Ge Chunqiu was propped up by an invisible energy.
Ge Chunqiu said hurriedly, “Those who achieve first come first. I don’t care about age.”
“I care! With your eyebrows and beard, people will think you’re my teacher if I take you outside.” Qin Haodong would never accept such an old apprentice. “There’s no need to be my apprentice.” He said, “Just keep a good eye on the jade mine for me. In the future, you’ll profit abundantly.”
Just then, Ge Chunqiu had felt Qin Haodong’s strength. Even though he had passed the threshold of the supreme power realm, the gap between them was still massive. He couldn’t compete at all.
Although he was very disappointed, he also knew that it had been a great opportunity to receive his help to break through. Therefore, he didn’t dare to ask for anything else.
“Don’t worry Mr. Qin. I, Ge Chunqiu, will definitely do what you have assigned me to do.”
With that, he saluted Qin Haodong again, then turned around and left.
So far, the task he had come to Myanmar for had been completed. He had also received a lot of extra benefits.
Early the next morning, he and Lin Momo took the little fellow back to Jiangnan City by plane.
In Japan, Yagyuu Yukime had returned to the Yagyuu family and went straight to Yagyuu Shinji’s room.
Yagyuu Shinji looked delighted when he saw her and said, “Yukime, you’re back so soon. How is that Qin Haodong? Has he been eradicated?”
Yagyuu Yukime said, “This time, the trip to Myanmar was very smooth. Qin Haodong was indeed killed by me, but I still have one very important thing to report to my father.”
