Chapter 627 Challenge Letter
Mei Zhanlong said this and felt a chill in his heart.
He had already seen the cause of Zha Liang’s death. He must have used the Roaring Flame Soul-Refining Talisman and was then killed by the backlash.
It was not a big deal that Qin Haodong was not afraid of the Roaring Flame Soul-refining Talisman, but he was still able to counter Zha Liang’s attack. The level of his cultivation made Mei Zhanlong’s heart palpitate a bit.
The steward did not speak, but listened respectfully. In his opinion, Mei Zhanlong would definitely be furious. He would kill the guy named Qin and it was not surprising that the Li family would be hated by him.
However, Mei Zhanlong did not fly into a rage as he had expected. Mei Zhanlong said, “I’m going to write a letter of challenge. Send it to that person.”
The steward was slightly stunned and then he said, “Master, is it necessary to go through so much trouble? Wouldn’t it be easier to kill him directly?”
Mei Zhanlong said, “As the number one person in Hong Kong, everyone respects me as a master. I naturally have the demeanor of a master. You should do as I say.”
Of course, he would not tell the steward what he was thinking. Qin Haodong’s cultivation shocked him a little. First, he made an attack backfire on Zha Liang’s soul and then he killed Yi Chenzi silently.
Even if he had to be careful to deal with such an opponent, he had to make sufficient preparations in advance. Otherwise, he would lose his reputation after the battle.
It took time to prepare. Now that both of his apprentices had been killed by Qin Haodong, if he did not give any response, he would definitely be mocked and questioned by others.
In order to save his face and buy time to prepare, the best way was to send a letter of challenge.
The steward naturally did not think too much about it. He had worked for so many years for Mei Zhanlong and had already developed a proud and arrogant manner. In his eyes, Mei Zhanlong was invincible in the world.
After Mei Zhanlong finished writing the letter of challenge, he took it and walked to the Manor of the Li family.
Early in the morning, Qin Haodong transferred 20 members of Daddy Security Company from Jiangnan City to Hong Kong and arrived at the Li villa.
Zhang Tieniu led the team. His cultivation had reached the half-step to the Supreme Power Realm. The other members of Daddy Security Company behind him had also reached the sixth level of Covert Power.
Moreover, these people were initially from the military and then began to practice Martial Arts. They had outstanding abilities in all aspects. With such a powerful team of bodyguards, even the head of a country would be secure.
“Thank you for your hard work.”
Qin Haodong reached out and patted Zhang Tieniu on the shoulder. Zhang Tieniu suddenly felt that the bottleneck of the Supreme Power Realm, which had troubled him for a long time, was opened in an instant. The Genuine Qi in his body was unimpeded and his momentum suddenly rose.
The boss’s gentle pat helped him break through and reach the first level of the Supreme Power Realm.
“Thank you, boss!”
Zhang Tieniu looked at Qin Haodong with admiration in his eyes.
Qin Haodong nodded slightly. It seemed that after using his enhanced version of the elixir, these people’s levels had improved a lot. He believed that it would not be long before they could cross the threshold of the Supreme Power Realm.
He introduced Zhang Tieniu and the others to Li Dongguo. While they were chatting in the living room, the housekeeper Uncle Cheng suddenly ran in and said in a panic, “Master, Mei Zhanlong’s steward is outside. He said he is here to deliver a letter of challenge.”
Li Dongguo also became nervous. He looked at Qin Haodong and said, “Let him in!”
Uncle Cheng agreed and left. It wasn’t long before he walked in with the haughty steward.
After entering the door, the steward said arrogantly, “Who is Qin Haodong?”
The steward sneered as he looked at Qin Haodong. Then he handed over the letter of challenge in his hand and said, “This is a letter of challenge from my master.”
Qin Haodong took the letter of challenge and looked at it. There were not many words on it. It read, “At ten o’clock in the morning after seven days, we will fight to the death on Divine Dragon Island!”, followed by Mei Zhanlong’s seal.
He casually threw the letter of challenge aside and said, “Go back and tell Mei Zhanlong that I’ll take up his challenge!”
The steward sneered and said, “Boy, you will not try to run away, will you? Let me tell you, if you run away, the Li family will be the first to suffer.”
“You don’t have any manners. Didn’t your master teach you how to be a good person?”
Qin Haodong was completely enraged by the steward’s attitude. After entering the house, this guy behaved in such an arrogant manner. He waved his hand at Zhang Tieniu and said, “Throw him out!”
“How dare you, kid! I’m Master Mei Zhanlong’s steward. How dare you disrespect me?”
Before he could finish speaking, Zhang Tieniu’s fist, which was as big as a casserole, appeared in front of him. The punch caused blood to flow out of his nostrils. He could not utter a word and then he was lifted up like a chicken.
As Mei Zhanlong’s steward, this guy also had a certain level of cultivation. Originally, he wanted to resist, but he found that his ability was like child’s play in front of Zhang Tieniu, which had no effect at all.
Zhang Tieniu took him to the gate and threw him out.
The steward got up from the ground and wanted to show off, but when he saw the fierce look in Zhang Tieniu’s eyes, he was so scared that he did not dare to say anything and ran back in disgrace.
In the living room, Li Dongguo and Li Meiyu also read the letter of challenge. Li Dongguo said with some concern, “Little Brother Medical Sage, are you confident?”
“Never mind. He is just an old swindler. Seven days is quite a long time though.” Qin Haodong did not take this challenge seriously. He asked, “Where is this Divine Dragon Island?”
Li Dongguo said, “Divine Dragon Island is an island roughly fifty or sixty nautical miles away from Hong Kong. Normally, it is very desolate and no one will go there. Seven days later, I will arrange a boat to send you.”
Qin Haodong asked a few more questions and went back to his room. Li Dongguo thought that he was going to prepare for the battle, so he ordered his family members not to disturb him.
Of course, he was not preparing for the battle. Seven days was enough for him to do a lot of things. The most important thing now was to get the bronze head of the 12 Zodiacs in Sir Owen’s hand.
If he could get another Upper Level Spiritual Stone and raise his cultivation to the ninth level of Supreme Power Realm, he would be able to kill Mei Zhanlong easily at that time.
Qin Haodong turned on his laptop to view a large number of Picasso’s works. Then, he took a look at the ancient paintings of other European celebrities.
Then, he searched for a large amount of information. As a fraud expert, he naturally knew how to produce an ancient painting without any flaws.
Two hours later, he took Nalan Wushuang out and began to buy a lot of things related to painting. Then he began to work in the room.
When evening came, Qin Haodong had copied 40 pieces of Picasso’s artwork. Ten of them were in one group and they were divided into four groups.
He stretched and said to Nalan Wushuang, who was focusing on cultivation beside him, “Wushuang, come and see how my paintings are.”
Nalan Wushuang stopped practicing and walked to his side. She picked up a painting and glanced at it. Then she gasped and said, “Rogue!”
Qin Haodong was a little confused. When he saw Nalan Wushuang’s perfect figure, it was then that he came up with an idea. How could he be a rogue?
He could not help looking at the picture in Nalan Wushuang’s hand. It was a drawing of a human body. On it was a middle-aged woman. She was naked. Her full chest, slender waist and private parts and even the expression on her face could be seen clearly.
Qin Haodong smiled and said, “This is art. If taken out, it can be sold for a lot of money.”
Nalan Wushuang curled her lips and said, “How much can it be sold for? These things cost only a few hundred yuan.”
“That’s not the same. They were raw materials. Now after being processed by me, it’s a work of art. It’s a supreme work of Picasso.”
Nalan Wushuang looked through the collection a few more times. This group was all about human bodies. She threw it aside and looked at another group. The subjects in this group were all children and she could accept it.
The sketch paper processed by Qin Haodong was completely different from when they just bought it. The whole picture scroll was dark in color and the material of the paper seemed to have changed. If she had not bought it, she would really have thought that it was a sketch paper from the Middle Ages.
As for the things in the painting, she knew nothing about antiques in Huaxia, let alone western art.
Qin Haodong asked, “What do you think of these paintings?”
Nalan Wushuang put the sketch on the table and said with a smile, “I think I painted better than this when I was in primary school.”
Qin Haodong was speechless and said, “Forget it. It’s useless to show you. I’d better find an expert to see if there are any loopholes in my paintings.”
Although he had absolute confidence in his imitation of ancient painting techniques, this was after all the first time he was reproducing western works of art and since the Bronze Head sculpture was at stake, he had to be careful.
Thinking of this, he took out his mobile phone and dialed Tian Ye’s number.
“Hello, Mr. Qin. What can I do for you?”
When the phone was connected, the respectful voice of Tian Ye came from the other side.
In just half a day, the news of Master Mei Zhanlong’s challenge to the Medical Sage of Huaxia had spread throughout Hong Kong.
At this moment, he already knew Qin Haodong’s identity. He also heard that this young man had killed Master Zha and Yi Chenzi in succession. Both the Medical Sage’s identity and his super high cultivation were enough to make him admire Qin Haodong from the bottom of his heart.
“Manager Tian, I want to ask you if you know anything about western paintings.”
Tian Ye said, “I just know a little, but I’m not particularly proficient. I have professional appraisers here if you need. They will give you a satisfactory appraisal.”
Qin Haodong said, “That’s great. I have a piece of Picasso’s artwork. Please ask your appraiser to come here.”
“Mr. Qin, are you sure you’re not joking?”
Although he had heard Qin Haodong saying that he had a painting of Picasso in his hand, he did not take it too seriously. He thought that Qin Haodong was just saying it casually.
It could be said that in the history of art, he was the only one who had seen his own works collected by the Louvre while he was still alive. One could imagine how famous he was.
When he was still alive, the works he created had already been taken by collectors and his works were basically not seen on the market.
