Chapter 440 Jade King
Yagyuu Yukime knew a lot about each of the families. By taking 300 million US dollars from each of them, she could heavily cut down a piece of their fortunes. But it wouldn’t make them collapse.
Therefore, the family masters of those families all chose to pay for their lives. An hour later, the Yagyuu had an extra US 1.5 billion US dollars, which was equivalent to 10 billion yuan.
It had to be said that Yagyuu Yukime was very skillful. As soon as she sat on the throne as the family master, she quickly alleviated the financial tension of the family. At the same time, she revealed her level three heavenly ninja cultivation, so that other families would no longer dare to make a move against them. All the voices of opposition were also completely suppressed within the Yagyuu family.
In other words, although she had just taken the position as the family master, she had a firm grasp of the entire Yagyuu family in her hands.
After everything was completed, Yagyuu Yukime dialed Qin Haodong’s number.
Qin Haodong had just walked out of the Jiangnan Airport. When he saw that it was Yagyuu Yukime’s phone number, he pressed the answer button.
“Master, I killed Yagyuu Shinji!”
Qin Haodong said, “Oh, congratulations. You have taken your revenge.”
“Thank you master!”
“It’s not a big deal. There’s nothing to thank me for,” Qin Haodong said, “You can call me boss in the future. It sounds more comfortable this way.”
“Yes boss!” Yagyuu Yukime wouldn’t object to any of his orders. She added, “I am now the family master of the Yagyuu family and have complete control over it. I will listen to your orders at any time in the future.”
“Okay. Stay in Japan first. I will call you in the future if there is something I need.”
Qin Haodong said before hanging up the phone. It was also good news for him. No matter what, the Yagyuu family would be a great support for him.
They left the airport. Lin Momo hurried to the Lin Group. That time around, they had purchased a large number of raw gemstones from Myanmar. It had completely solved the raw materials dilemma of the company. It was enough for her to be busy for a while.
Qin Haodong returned to the Daddy Security Company. He first handed the little fellow to Nalan Wushuang. Then, he took out his cell phone and dialed master Su Haichuan’s number.
After a few polite words, he said, “Master Su, please come over. I have something good to show you.”
Su Haichuan said, “Doctor Qin, do you want me to carve something? I’m telling you; I am done with the business. How about I send Xiaolong over right now? His skills are similar to mine.”
Ever since Qin Haodong cured Su Xiaolong, Su Haichuan had indeed given all his work to his son. He was only raising flowers and feeding fish, living a leisurely life.
Qin Haodong clearly knew about Su Haichuan’s craftsmanship. Although Su Xiaolong had inherited most of Su Haichuan’s skills, he was still not as good as the geezer. The big piece of jade Qin Haodong had was a treasure. Naturally, the geezer himself had to do it.
Qin Haodong said, “Master Su, what I have is something good. As long as you come and take a look at it, I won’t stop you if you turn around and leave.”
Qin Haodong was quite aware of that sculpture master’s temper. If he saw the best quality jade, he would be completely unable to stop himself. At that time, even if Qin Haodong didn’t want him to handle it, it would be impossible to stop him.
“Okay then. I will go with Xiaolong now,”
Su Haichuan said then hung up the phone. The reason why he agreed was entirely because of Qin Haodong’s face. Inwardly, he had no intentions of handling it himself.
In his opinion, he had been fiddling with jade all his life, and had never seen anything good. When he arrived, he would casually look at it, and then let his son handle it.
He went to the yard and called Su Xiaolong. The two of them drove to the Daddy Security Company.
Qin Haodong calculated that Su Haichuan would be unable to control the urge to carve that piece of jade, so he vacated a room in the Daddy Security Company to designate it as his future studio.
The value of that piece of jade was so high that if it were placed in Su Haichuan’s home, it would most likely bring disaster to the family once the news leaked out. Therefore, it was more appropriate to put it in the Daddy Security Company. There weren’t many safer places in the world.
No long after, Su Haichuan and his son walked in.
After saying hello, Su Haichuan said, “Doctor Qin, where is the thing you wanted to show me? You wouldn’t have found an Imperial Jade again, right?”
Just after going in through the door, he had not noticed the high-priced jade that was placed inside the room. His first impression was that something of that size could only be stone, not jade. Therefore, he didn’t pay attention to it.
“I don’t have any Imperial Jade,” Qin Haodong said, as pointed at the high-priced piece of jade, “I wanted to show you this treasure.”
“Why do you want me to look at this? I’m telling you, I’m a jade sculptor, not a stone carving master…”
Su Haichuan turned his head to look at the high-priced jade while he spoke. When he saw the opening on the jade, he immediately stood there dumbfounded, as if he had been immobilized.
Su Xiaolong also opened his mouth wide in surprise, “Oh my God, is this jade?”
Both father and son walked towards the high-priced piece of jade, as if they were under a magic spell. They stroked the opening while exclaiming, “Such a big piece of jade. Such good water species. Oh my God, this is the king of jade!”
Qin Haodong didn’t speak. He only smiled at Su Haichuan and his son. Qin Haodong thought that title was good. Calling it a high-priced jade was neither domineering nor pleasant. The name ‘King of Jade’ was good!
After a long time, the father and son finally returned to their senses.
Su Haichuan said excitedly, “Doctor Qin, where did you get this king of jade from?”
Qin Haodong said, “I went to Burma these past few days and accidentally picked up this treasure. I originally wanted to ask Master Su to carve it, but it is a pity that you’ve already retired. I can only ask Xiaolong do it.”
He turned towards Su Xiaolong and said, “Xiaolong, it seems that I will need to rely on you.”
Su Xiaolong said excitedly, “Don’t worry Doctor Qin, I won’t let you down!”
As a sculptor, seeing such a good piece of jade would make controlling his own hands impossible. It had to be known that once that jade carving was produced, it would definitely be a masterpiece!
“Get out of the way. How can you be worthy of the Jade King? What happens if you accidentally smash it while you’re carving?”
Su Haichuan pushed Su Xiaolong away and said in a flattering voice, “Doctor Qin, I was joking with you. How could I leave the business? It’s just that I haven’t come across suitable things. You can give me this piece of Jade King. I will definitely turn it into a masterpiece that will cause a sensation in Huaxia.”
Qin Haodong saw the father and son fighting each other over the jade. Although he was amused, there was a sullen expression on his face as he said, “Master Su, you’re not young anymore. Can you carve such a big piece of jade? You should let Xiaolong do it. After all, he is young and energetic!”
“Nonsense. I can’t do anything else, but when it comes to carving, I won’t submit to anyone.” Su Haichuan was really in a bit of a hurry as he said, “How about this Doctor Qin? As long as you give the jade to me to carve, I won’t charge a penny. As long as you let me carve it!”
As a sculpting master who had been immersed in the jade industry all his life, he was very impatient to have a perfect masterpiece. Therefore, it was imperative to get that piece of Jade King in front of him.
Su Xiaolong saw his father getting anxious and said, “Dad, why don’t I get you a partner?”
Su Haichuan said, “No need. I can do it by myself!”
Qin Haodong said with a smile, “Okay. This piece of Jade King will be given to your father. You can carve it any way you want, as long as you can make the best use of it. As for your working fee, I will pay you the full price.”
“The money doesn’t matter.” Su Haichuan excitedly stroked the Jade King. It looked as if he were stroking his lover’s skin. “Then we have a deal. You must give this thing to me. Don’t go back on your word.”
Qin Haodong said, “From today onwards, this room and this piece of Jade King will be handed over to you. Just let me know when the carving is done.”
With that, he left the Jade King to the Su family’s father and son, and walked out of the room. As soon as he walked out of the building, he saw Zhang Tieniu bent over and sitting in a corner of the training ground smoking.
Originally, Zhang Tieniu was a tall, sturdy man. But at the moment, he looked sad and bleak.
It was impossible to know what he was thinking. He didn’t even notice that Qin Haodong had walked up next to him.
Squatting down next to him, Qin Haodong said, “What’s the matter? Is there something you are worried about?”
“No… It’s nothing.”
Zhang Tieniu said hesitantly. However, at a glance, it was obvious that it wasn’t true.
Qin Haodong raised his hand and punched him on his thick shoulder, “If there’s something, just say it. There’s no need to be sentimental. Someone like you can’t lie without having the lies written all over your face, so who can you fool?”
Zhang Tieniu said awkwardly, “Boss, there is something, but I’m embarrassed to tell you.”
Qin Haodong rolled his eyes at him, “If you have something to say then say it. If you want to swear then swear. Don’t pretend to be shy with me!”
His informal remarks made Zhang Tienu feel very close to him, like family. He smiled foolishly and said, “Boss, it’s like this. I want to receive a few months’ salary from the company in advance.”
“That’s not a big deal. Why are you so fussy about it?” Qin Haodong said, “Did your family encounter some difficulties?”
Zhang Tienu nodded and said, “Boss, you’ve cured my illness and helped me so much. I am ashamed to ask more from you again, but just now my wife called and said that the house collapsed in the heavy rain from a few days ago. We’re now staying at my relative’s house with my children, so that I can think of something quickly.
“Therefore, I want to receive a few months’ salary from you in advance to build our house. A house in the countryside is easy to deal with. 30 to 50 thousand yuan will be enough.”
Qin Haodong did not rush to express his thoughts, as he said, “How heavy was the rain? How could it collapse the house?”
“Actually, the rain wasn’t too heavy. However, my house was too run down. These past few years, my wife had spent almost all her money to cure me. Seeing that other families have built new houses, and it was only us that…”
Speaking up to here, the iron and steel man, who wouldn’t frown at all while being stabbed by a knife, had unexpectedly started to choke up, “I’ve dragged my family down all these years, dragged my wife and kid down. I feel so sorry towards them!”
Qin Haodong sighed secretly. That former Soldier King, the Niu God who had made enemies fear him, had given up his best years for the country. In the end, he had unexpectedly become severely depressed.
“Are there many people like you in our company?”
“There are many,” Zhang Tieniu said, “Some among my comrades are a bit better than me, and some are worse than me. Although I have earned a lot of salary from our company recently, I have plenty of debts from my past.”
Qin Haodong’s nostrils were a little sore. He patted Zhang Tieniu on the shoulder and said, “Call sister-in-law and ask her to buy a ticket to Jiangnan immediately. Tell her to bring the children with her. Don’t build your house in the countryside. Settle down in the city.”
Zhang Tieniu said hurriedly, “That’s impossible. We can’t afford a house in the city. If we rent a house, our children can’t go to school. It’s better if we spend tens of thousands on building a new house in the countryside.”
Qin Haodong said, “If I say it’s possible then it’s possible. Give sister-in-law a call now.”
