Cai Ning and Rose looked at each other, it was far from their expectations.
“As a matter of fact, for the last 50 years, Sea Eagles might have been the top first or second ranked mercenary in the world but they have never won against that mercenary in the Caesar Assembly.” Ron continued to rouse their interest.
Rose was so intrigued as she was curious to know about Yang Chen’s past. She shook Ron’s sleeves and asked, “Mister Ron, don’t keep us hanging. Tell us about the mercenary. Who are they?”
Yang Chen couldn’t stand it when Rose started to behave coquettishly and he answered on Ron’s behalf, “The mercenary belongs to a clan called ps. They have already taken the top rank before I showed up.”
“Ps? What does it mean?”
“Cyclops, they were created by God. Similar to the Titans, they are skilled at forging weapons.” Ron explained, “Well, even though that clan is mysterious and no one knows the location of their headquarters, they are all normal humans and not real cyclops. However, every clan member has great powers and physique. They are also vicious and ruthless to the point that people were suspicious of their bloodline. It wasn’t weird since the Panthers and Shamans were born with great magical talents and the sorcerers from the Sword in the Stone, their magical powers were passed on from generation to generation. But because they are all arrogant and obstinate, people weren’t willing to hire them even though they always took the top spot. They are expensive yet disobedient. Apparently, someone hired them once but they accepted the enemy’s money and killed the employer instead. Despite their bad reputation, they could still join the Caesar Assembly since the Assembly doesn’t take this into account. However, people don’t really talk about them so they are not really well known.”
“They sound terrifying,” Rose bit her lip while saying that but her eyes were glowing as if she was looking forward to meeting them. She turned around to look at Yang Chen, “Hubby, did you join the last session? Are they stronger than you?”
Yang Chen rolled his eyes, “You think too much. I’m not qualified to join the assembly. I never hired a mercenary and I have divinity so I can’t take part in international affairs like this. Those who participate in the Assembly are elites from the Sea Eagles. Ordinary people wouldn’t be a match for the Sea Eagles, but ps does have members with unique traits so it makes sense if they lost to ps.”
“Fortunately the Caesar Assembly banned malice murder so they have not gone further than incapacitating their opponent.” Callejón laughed mischievously, “Your Majesty Pluto, shall we go watch the match next Monday? I heard the new guys in Sea Eagle are pretty skilled. They might have a shot against ps.”
Yang Chen wasn’t really interested. From what he had witnessed four years ago, the members of ps were at least in the Full Cycle of the Xiantian stage. If he hadn’t broken the seal and used the space laws, he might have lost to them.
Hence, even if the Sea Eagles had become stronger, they still wouldn’t stand a chance against ps.
Upon seeing the eager expression on Cai Ning and Rose, Yang Chen asked with a smile, “Are you guys interested?”
The ladies nodded hard.
“We can go then. But I can’t stay here for the whole week. You guys can stay here first and I’ll come back next week to accompany both of you.” Yang Chen didn’t want to make Lin Ruoxi jealous again.
The ladies were beaming with excitement. They couldn’t wait for the day to come.
After the meal, Yang Chen gave them a tour in his castle and just like Lin Ruoxi, they immediately understood his intention upon seeing a large number of rooms in the castle. Unlike Lin Ruoxi, they were more embarrassed than upset.
Yang Chen showed them his collection and facilities inside the castle and also talked to Ron about things he had to pay attention to before the ladies say goodbye.
When he was embracing Cai Ning, he purposely whispered into her ear, “I’ll eat you up the next time I see you.”
Cai Ning was startled at first but blood soon rushed up to her face and she hid behind Rose.
Yang Chen smirked and disappeared in a flash.
It was already daytime when he returned to Zhonghai and Yang Chen thought it was time to go to work so he drove straight to the company.
Right when he arrived, things felt odd to him. The office was supposed to be hustling and bustling with energy but the air was stiff. Employees were also looking at him with a complex gaze.
Yang Chen walked into his office and saw Zhao Teng walking around in circles with a frustrated expression.
“Director Yang! You’re finally here!!” Zhao Teng shrieked.
“What’s going on? Why does everyone look so dead?” Yang Chen was puzzled.
Zhao Teng slapped his thigh, “I knew you weren't aware of it. I called President Lin just now and she told me to inform you to go to her office for a meeting. I was waiting for you!”
“Ruoxi is calling me over for a meeting?” Yang Chen furrowed his brows.
Lin Ruoxi hardly called him over when they were working because she didn’t want people to talk about them behind their backs. This must be a serious matter for her to do this.
Zhao Teng pulled Yang Chen to his desk and pointed at the monitor first before motioning towards the tabloids and newspapers.
“Look, Director Yang, this is getting way out of hand!!”
Yang Chen’s face darkened the moment he laid his eyes on them...
The titles were in striking black or red bold fonts and the contents were shocking!
“Top star Lin Hui is the mistress of a company executive!”
“Top Star Lin Hui showed up in a kindergarten, she may have given birth ages ago!”
“How did Lin Hui become famous so quickly? He’s the one behind this!”
“President Lin Ruoxi of Yu Lei International is humiliated, her company's artist Lin Hui has a secret relationship with her husband…”
“The pure goddess found her love? Affectionate photos of her with a mysterious man!”
There were photos attached to these titles which mainly consisted of Hui Lin sitting amongst the parents in the kindergarten while chewing something as Yang Chen adjusted her mask.
They were smiling so sweetly to one another as if they were a couple.
Yang Chen’s hands were trembling and he almost broke the desk.
”Bull crap…bull crap…complete bull crap!! Who wrote this damned news?! Which publisher?! Do they have a death wish?!”
Yang Chen was infuriated. It felt as if his lungs were on fire!
It would have been fine if they mocked him but they pulled Lin Ruoxi into this and made Hui Lin look like a total whore!
Yang Chen couldn’t express his feelings of having his beloved being humiliated by others.
He never would’ve imagined that someone would take a photo of this in such a short time. It was a grave mistake on his end!
Zhao Teng forced the words out of his throat, “Director Yang, I believe in you guys…”
“Duh!! I’ll kill those who don’t believe in us!!” Yang Chen roared with a red flushed face.
Zhao Teng thought he was about to become deaf, “Calm down, calm down, Director Yang. We can’t solve things this way. I asked someone to look into this and these photos came from a paparazzi working for a small tabloid company. They bought these photos from people who took them secretly using their phones. Someone must have taken the photos secretly when the kindergarten was packed and sold it to the paparazzi. We have relations with the regular media so they wouldn’t dare to report this since they wouldn’t want to be on our bad side. These are reports done by online websites and small tabloids so we were unable to stop them in time. Once this spreads online on personal blogs, Weibo and other platforms, the whole world will see these articles and photos in no time…we have to come up with a way to repair Miss Hui Lin’s reputation and clear you and President Lin’s name
