Chapter 449 Defend Against Injustice
Huang Cailun continued to growl. “Bitch, you’re still not convinced, are you? Today, I will show you what will happen if you offend me.”
With that, he turned his head and shouted towards one side of the hall, “Where is the owner of the teahouse? Hurry up and come out. You must be held accountable for what happened today.”
The noise there was too loud, as it had already alarmed the lobby manager. He ran over quickly. When he saw the angry Huang Cailun, he quickly said, “Master Huang, what happened? Are you not satisfied with your meal?”
“Are you fucking blind?” Huang Cailun pointed to the slap print on his face and aggressively continued his tirade, “I have been slapped by the bitch who plays music here. Today, you must give me an explanation for this.”
Hearing Huang Cailun’s complaint first, the lobby manager immediately turned his head towards Shihan, as his face instantly changed from servile to domineering. “Are you crazy? How dare you hit the guest? Apologize to Master Huang quickly.”
Even though the guest had flirted with his own staff first, he actually asked her to apologize. Many guests were extremely unsatisfied by the lobby manager’s approach.
Shihan glared angrily at the lobby manager, then turned around and left, completely ignoring his words.
Huang Cailun shouted, “Bitch, where are you going? Stop right there!”
The lobby manager stood in front of her and shouted, “Jia Shihan, are you deaf? I told you to apologize to Master Huang!”
Only then did Qin Haodong find out that the girl’s full name was Jia Shihan.
As soon as the manager finished shouting, he heard a banging sound. A bright red palmprint had appeared on his face.
Jia Shihan’s face was flushed. It was obvious that she had been angered to the breaking point. She slapped the lobby manager and then continued walking away.
Seeing that, the guests next to them began to clap their hands in approval.
Just then, a sharp voice sounded.
“You stop right there. If you dare take another step, I will break that leg and sell you to the bath center.”
Qin Haodong looked towards the direction of the voice and saw a woman walking over. She was ridiculously fat; her waistline was no thinner than her height. She walked like a big rolling meatball.
Such a person was fond of using heavy layers of makeup. Her big and greasy face was covered with all kinds of cosmetics. When she walked, not only did the fat all over her body tremble, the powder on her face also kept falling down. It made people nauseous.
The rotund woman was Zhu Dongmei, the teahouse’s owner. Everyone called her Big Fat Pig in secret.
Zhu Dongmei approached Jia Shihan and yelled ferociously, “if you pretend to be arrogant in front of me again, I will sell you to the bath center to be their bitch!”
Huang Cailun listened to her words with a hideous smile and said, “That would be nice. When that time comes, I will take people to visit you every day, just to see if you still try to pretend in front of me.”
His squinting eyes were fixed on Jia Shihan’s convex and concave figure, as if he had seen what it looked like to be pinned down by him.
Jia Shihan remained silent but stood there with angry eyes.
“Bitch, are you deaf? Quickly get down on your knees and apologize to Master Huang!”
Zhu Dongmei was about to go crazy due to anger. On weekdays, she was bitter and ferocious when dealing with the teahouse staff. She never thought that there would ever be a time where an employee struck a guest. If the news got out, how could her teahouse be open in the future? Who would send money to the Heming Teahouse?
Jia Shihan glanced at Zhu Dongmei and still kept her silence. It seemed that there were no words that could express her feelings at that moment.
Zhu Dongmei continued in a harsh tone, “Jia Shihan, let me tell you, you signed a three-year contract. It is clearly written in our contract that you must give priority to the image of the teahouse and absolutely not affect its business. Otherwise, you will have to pay a compensation that is ten times your three years’ worth of salary. Are you trying to break the rules now?”
“This is too cruel. How can there even be such an unfair clause in the contract…?”
The guests around them began to whisper.
Jia Shihan said angrily, “I don’t understand your contract at all. You tricked me into signing it.”
Zhu Dongmei immediately screamed like a cat whose tail had been stepped on. “Liar. Your name is clearly signed in black on the white paper. How did I lie to you?”
“Boss, I am friends with your husband, Brother Zhu. I usually support the Heming Teahouse’s business. However, I was hit by a woman here today. Shouldn’t you give me an explanation?”
Huang Cailun added more fire to Zhu Dongmei’s anger.
Zhu Dongmei shook her fat body, then she stared at Jia Shihan and shouted, “Quickly apologize to Master Huang. Otherwise I will make it impossible for you to survive in Shanghai.”
“What a big tone!”
said Qin Haodong, smiling disdainfully.
“Don’t talk nonsense little brother. This teahouse has an underworld background.”
The fat man moved his chair towards Qin Haodong and whispered in his ear, “Hou Qingzhu, the owner of the teahouse, has friendly relations with a few of the elders from the Shanghai underworld, so the landlady isn’t really bragging. As long as she says a word, it will definitely be hard for Shihan to survive in Shanghai.”
An extremely troubled look flashed in Jia Shihan’s beautiful eyes. It contained grief, anger, unwillingness and sadness.
Seeing her expression, many of the guests present were moved with compassion. But sympathy was sympathy. It was impossible for them to stand up and speak on her behalf.
Jia Shihan did not expect those people to help, either. “Don’t deceive others too much,” She said angrily to Zhu Dongmei.
“Bitch. Are you getting more and more annoyed?” Zhu Dongmei pointed to Jia Shihan and cried, “For the last time, hurry up and apologize to Master Huang. If you wait for my husband to come back, it will be too late for you to regret it then.
“Do you think you are so great by pretending to be like a saint all day long? Do you believe that my husband won’t dare to strip you naked and throw you out to parade on the streets?”
Huang Cailun exclaimed, “If that’s the case landlady, then I won’t look into what happened today. When the time comes, I want to see what she will use to pretend in front of me when she loses her face.”
“From today onwards, I no longer have anything to do with the Heming Teahouse.”
After Jia Shihan spoke, she held her seven-stringed guqin and walked towards the exit of the teahouse.
“Stop right there. Did the landlady let you go?”
The lobby manager stopped in front of Jia Shihan. However, as soon as he spoke, he was hit by the guqin in his stomach. He screamed like a pig.
From her movements, Qin Haodong confirmed his own suspicions that Jia Shihan must have been a famous martial artist in the past. Also, her cultivation was very high. That seven-stringed guqin was her weapon; however, she had lost her internal force. She couldn’t even use 1/10000 of her previous ability.
Huang Cailun pulled the corners of his mouth to sneer, then he said to Zhu Dongmei, “Owner, it seems that I have to take matters into my own hands today.”
With that, he took out his cellphone and dialed a number. As soon as he hung up the phone, a few sturdy bodyguards rushed in from the outside.
After went in through the door, they shouted viciously, “Who dares to provoke our Master Huang? Are you tired of living?”
Witnessing such a move, everyone sweated from nervousness, sympathizing with Jia Shihan’s plight. No matter what, she was only a woman and could not face those bodyguards. It seemed that her doom was inevitable.
The fat man shook his head next to Qin Haodong and whispered, “This girl is really stubborn. Is it so hard to apologize?”
But he also knew that the key issue was not an apology. Even if Jia Shihan bowed her head, she would be unable to escape Huang Cailun in the end.
Looking at the several bodyguards in front of her, despair flashed across Jia Shihan’s eyes. At the same time, there was a kind of extreme reluctance. The ant, who once could kill others by raising a finger, had now been forced into a desperate situation.
Right at that moment, she suddenly noticed that another person had appeared next to her. A very handsome young man.
Qin Haodong smiled and said, “Don’t worry, I’m here!”
With just those six words, Jia Shihan’s heart all of a sudden felt very peaceful. At the same time, it was filled with warmth, touched by the fact that someone was still willing to stand up and help her.
Only then did the fat man realize that the young man who had been sitting next to him had stood up to counter the injustice. He was a little worried about Qin Haodong, but he still refrained from opening his mouth and just murmured, “It’s your own death wish. You can’t blame anyone else.”
That was the way things were at the time. In the eyes of many people, acting bravely for the sake of righteousness was recently seen as a stupid behavior; according to the general opinion, protecting oneself was the best way.
Zhu Dongmei looked at Qin Haodong and said angrily, “Who are you? You can eat here but mind your own business. If you’ve finished eating, then quickly leave.”
Qin Haodong smiled faintly and said at leisure, “I can’t stand to see people with large numbers bullying others with smaller numbers, and even more so when they bully women.”
Huang Cailun did not expect that someone would jump out and meddle in his own affairs. If he didn’t get his face back that day, then he would be unable to live in Shanghai in the future.
When he thought of that, he became more and more angry and shouted to several of his bodyguards, “Get rid of this pretty boy and take the bitch away. I must take her today!”
Hearing the master’s orders, the bodyguards immediately rushed towards Qin Haodong and Jia Shihan.
Qin Haodong reached out and pulled Jia Shihan behind him. Right then, the first of the bodyguards reached him.
He reached out and grabbed the bodyguard’s wrist, then raised his hand as a palm knife chopped at the bodyguard’s neck.
As a Chinese medicine practitioner, he was very familiar with the human body. No matter the strength or angle, he was extremely accurate.
From just that move, the bodyguard fell to the ground lightly and fainted.
Then Qin Haodong kept moving. He lifted his leg and kicked on the chest of the second bodyguard, who was propelled like a cannonball. The bodyguard first knocked over a table, and then hit Zhu Dongmei hard.
The strength was such that Zhu Dongmei could not keep her balance. After a scream, she rolled on the ground like a meatball and bumped into several tables. Chopsticks, dishes and various ingredients clustered together one after the other.
Qin Haodong was not polite with the remaining two bodyguards, as he took both down. They fell to the ground after two to three kicks.
Seeing Qin Haodong’s skills, a strange look flashed across Jia Shihan’s eyes.
After dealing with those bodyguards, he waved at Huang Cailun, who looked bewildered. “You, come here!”
Unexpectedly, the little white face in front of him was an expert. Seeing that all the bodyguards had fallen, Huang Cailun immediately lost his strength and shouted, “Do you know who my mother is?” You dare to steal my woman? Do you want to die?”
He said all that while spit flew everywhere. However, he noticed that Qin Haodong was walking towards him. He immediately said nervously, “You… What are you going to do? I’m warning you, you’re in Shanghai. If you offend me, you will never be able to survive…”
“Stupid. You say a lot of nonsense,”
said Qin Haodong, as he raised his hand and slapped Huang Cailun’s face.
That slap was much stronger than Jia Shihan’s. Huang Cailun was like a spinning top, as he turned on the ground a few times. Half of his face immediately swelled up and his teeth fell down, spreading all over the place.
