Chapter 78 Mind-manipulating Skill
Wang Guan jumped up when he heard the result, he yelled with joy, “Oh, I won the first prize! The first prize!”
Wang Hongbing and Ma Hong’s face turned proud, too. Nothing was impossible when faced with their powerful family. Their son might be a poor singer, and the girl might be a nice one, then what? Their son had to win the first prize.
It was not important if he was good at singing or not; it was more important to have a great dad.
The little fellow felt unfair immediately, and she asked, “Papa, am I a bad singer? How come that I didn’t win the first prize?”
Wang Jiani sighed because she had already seen all this coming. She tried to comfort the little fellow and said, “Don’t be sad, Tang Tang. It’s OK. You don’t have to win the first prize to pass the trial. You can catch up later.”
Sneer emerged at Qin Haodong’s mouth corner. This had become a contest of “good dad” now, but fortunately, no one in the world could be a better dad than him, the Emperor Green Wood.
He said to the little fellow, “Tang Tang, don’t worry. You’re actually the winner. The judge said it wrong. Now, wait for me. I’ll go to remind them.”
After that, he sent the little fellow to Wang Jiani’s arms. Then he strode to where the judge sat.
He walked to the head judge and said, “Your results are wrong. Singer 6 is the winner.”
The judge didn’t expect that someone would come and question their judgment. Of course, the result was against their will, but they would never allow anyone to question it for they had their authority to preserve.
He chinned up and was about to lecture the bold person, but his words changed right before they were about to be spoken out. He said, “You’re right, we made a mistake at work. I’m going to correct it right now.”
He said as he strode up on the stage. He grabbed the microphone from the deputy head judge and said, “We’ve made a mistake in the result. The winner is Singer Number 6, Tang Tang!”
All the audiences went speechless. They couldn’t believe that the head judge revised the result the deputy head judge had just given out.
However, the result now was more in line their expectation, and that was what they want, a justified result. Applause thundered in the place.
“I am the winner! I am the winner!” The little fellow was dancing with joy, and she kissed Qin Haodong several times on the neck. She said, “You’re a good dad! A good dad!”
Wang Jiani looked at Qin Haodong with surprise. She asked with disbelief, “How did you do that?”
“It’s easy. The head judge is also a very reasonable person. I told him he was wrong, so he went up on the stage and corrected it immediately.”
Qin Haodong said with a cheeky smile. He could never tell the girl about how he had used the Mind-manipulating Skills.
Mind-manipulating was the upgraded version of Mind-bewitching. Mind-bewitching could let people speak out the innermost ideas, while Mind-manipulating skill made others do as one thought.
Since this had become a fight of good dads and since the judge feared the power of the Wangs, he had no other options but to use his power to serve justice for the little fellow.
Wang Jiani’s face was filled with disbelief, but the truth was just there.
The Wangs are in a total mess now because the first prize they had just won was canceled. Wang Guan immediately cried out. He thumped Wang Hongbing and asked, “You said I would definitely be the winner because I’m a Wang, then why it’s canceled?”
“Why did the damn girl win the first prize? Is it because she’s better at singing than me?”
“Don’t worry, son. I’ll go check.” Wang Hongbing was also surprised that the judge he had bribed disappointed them. He walked to the judge’s seat in anger.
“Head judge, what’s going on? Wasn’t my son the winner?”
The head judge looked at him without any fear, in spite of the fact that he was the family master of the Wangs.
“The little girl won the first prize because she sang well, which was the most justified result.”
“What? How could she be better than my son? My son was a Wang! His grandfather always praises him for great singing!”
As angry as Wang Hongbing was, he was still rational. He tried to imply it to the judge that they were the Wangs, and his father-in-law was the deputy director of the Cultural Bureau.
But the head judge acted like he had taken strong drugs. He showed no respect to Wang Hongbing at all, and replied in anger, “I treat everyone here equally here, including the Wangs. How could your son win the first prize with that poor singing ability? Have you ever heard him singing?”
Wang Hongbing turned furious. He pointed to the judge and yelled, “Stop pretending! Don’t forget that yesterday, you…”
He was so furious that he was about to expose how he had bribed the head judge yesterday. The deputy head judge stopped him and said, “Please calm down, Mr. Wang. It will be bad for all of us if you say that out.”
The deputy head judge had no idea of what was wrong with the head judge, but it would be bad for all of them if the scandal got exposed. So he stood out to stop him.
Wang Hongbing thought about it for a moment and found it was true. He glared at the head judge and suppressed his anger.
The deputy judge said, “Mr. Wang. Although your son is not the winner today, I can grant him the second prize. He could participate in the semi-final, and I’m sure you know the way to make him the winner then.”
Wang Hongbing knew that this was his only option. He hummed coldly and went to the Wangs.
Later the deputy head judge went to the stage to announce the rankings of other players, Wang Guan fell from the first position to the second.
Qin Haodong didn’t care about others at all. He was not the savior. His could only make sure that the little fellow could be treated fairly.
When he retracted the Mind-manipulating, the main judge shivered as he had just woken up from a nightmare. What was done was done. He had irritated the Wangs, and it was too late to regret.
In that way, the contest ended up like a farce, but at least the result worked. The little fellow was told to attend the semi-final at 8:00 tomorrow night.
Having won the first prize today, the little fellow walked out of the gate of the Art Museum happily with Qin Haodong.
Wang Jiani also felt happy to be with the father and the daughter. After all, the little fellow was her student, and she shared her honor.
“Tang Tang, try your best, I believe that you can be the winner in the finals.”
“That’s great! Great! Tang Tang will be the winner! Tang Tang wants to be a big star!”
The little fellow yelled with joy and ran forward. Suddenly a group of people blocked her way. The head of the group was Wang Hongbing and his family, with seven more bodyguards behind.
The little fellow sensed that these people’s bad intention. She hurried to run back and hugged Qin Haodong’s leg.
Qin Haodong held the little fellow in his arms and looked at Wang Hongbing and others. Then he asked, “Anything wrong?”
Ma Hong said, “You steal my son’s first prize, now apologize to him and promise that you won’t attend the contest tomorrow.”
Wang Guan was young, but he had learned how to be arrogant from his parents. He yelled with her, “She took the first place away from me! Now apologize!”
The little fellow got courageous as soon as she was hugged in Qin Haodong’s arms. She yelled back emulatively. “I am the winner! You’re a bad singer!”
Wang Jiani said, “Wang Guan’s mother, you’re wrong. The kid won the prize because she was qualified. That’s the result given out by the judge. How can you blame others? You have no right to forbid her to attend the contest tomorrow.”
“Who the hell are you?” Ma Hong asked as she acted like a shrew. She pointed Wang Jiani on her face and yelled, “We’ll call you ‘miss’ when we respect you, and if we don’t, you’ll be nobody before the Wangs. I can have you fired just by calling the principal.”
“How can you be like this? That’s not how a parent should be like!”
Wang Jiani was so angry that her face turned red. Her chest was undulating violently.
Ma Hong continued yelling arrogantly, “Young girl, I don’t need you to teach me how to be a parent. Now get out of my way or I’ll have you fired tomorrow.”
Wang Jiani wanted to say something else, but Qin Haodong pulled her behind him. He said coldly to the rude woman, “Be a smart dog and get out of my way, now.”
See the young man had no respect to the Wangs at all, Wang Hongbing became stern and asked, “Do you have any idea who you’re talking to, young man?”
“I know. The Wangs, right? Qin Haodong answered like he didn’t care at all, “You’re the famous real estate, and your father in law is the deputy director of the Cultural Bureau.”
Wang Hongbing said proudly, “That’s right. Now do as my wife said and tell your daughter to apologize to my son, and promise not to attend the contest tomorrow.”
“No, I just want to attend, and I’ll be the winner!”
The little fellow replied emulatively.
Wang Guan yelled, “You’ll do what I say! If you insist to come, I’ll have my father knock off your father’s teeth!”
The little fellow said, “That’s brag. My papa is the greatest man in the world, and he’s not afraid of your papa.”
Ma Hong yelled, “Shut up, little girl, your father was a gigolo boy, how could he be the match of the Wangs.”
Qin Haodong glanced at the people of Wang Hongbing and asked with an intriguing look, “Do you have money?”
Ma Hong hesitated for a moment and answered, “Of course. The Wangs had enough money.”
Wang Hongbing asked, “You want money? I can give you 10,000 yuan as long as your daughter does not come to the contest tomorrow.”
Qin Haodong waved his hand. He smiled and said, “No. I’m afraid that you don’t have enough money to pay the hospital later.”
Wang Hongbing’s face turned cold, and he yelled in fury, “You sick of living? Young guy?”
He waved his hand and said loudly to the bodyguard behind him, “Teach him a hard lesson, and let him know what’s good!”
His bodyguards had been gearing up. They weren’t taking the young man seriously at all because he seemed muscleless. When the heard their boss’ command, they jumped at Qin Haodong immediately.
The bodyguard in the front smashed on Qin Haodong’s face. He wanted to perform nicely before his boss, wishing that his salary next month could be raised.
Unfortunately, his waving fist had barely touched Qin Haodong’s clothes before he flew backward and brought two other bodyguards down on the ground.
Qin Haodong kicked the bodyguard away with the little fellow in his arms. Then he kicked twice like playing soccer, knocking down Wang Hongbing and all his bodyguards.
“Great! Great! Papa’s so great!” The little fellow applauded cheerfully.
Wang Jiani was at first worried that Qin Haodong would get hurt, and she had taken out her phone to call the police. Before she pressed the third button, all men in front of her had been knocked down.
She opened her mouth in surprise because she never thought the young man, who was always smiling, was such a fierce fighter.
