Her temperament was extraordinary, and she looked at him with a casual and charming gaze, a faint smile playing around her lips. "Why are you in such a daze? I've called you a few times."
Li Yundong returned to his senses. Without thinking, he smiled and said, "I've just been thinking that it's really strange recently. I seem to meet people I know wherever I go."
Cao Kefei looked at Li Yundong with infatuation brimming in her eyes. In her opinion, this man had looked childish a few months ago. Although he had all kinds of magical skills, he had still been an ordinary person after all, and she had been able to look down on him.
But now, she had to stand on her tiptoes and raise her head just to look into his eyes!
"How can a person grow up so fast? How strong will he be in the future?"
Thinking of this, Cao Kefei couldn't help but be stunned for a moment. She sighed faintly. Everyone in the world was aware that the lobby manager was thinking about how to deal with it, but Director Gong asked the two policemen behind him loudly, "Are you here to arrest Young Master Li?"
The policeman named Xiao Zhang was tongue-tied and his forehead was slick with sweat. His tongue seemed to have been tied into a knot, leaving him unable to speak. The other policeman, Xiao Liu, was obviously much smarter. He shouted, "Director, we are here to learn about the situation!"
Director Gong glanced at him and was secretly satisfied by his quick-wittedness and speedy reaction. He nodded and said, "Yes, so what do you know about the situation?"
Xiao Liu became a little nervous and couldn't help sweating. He looked at Cao Kefei and then at Li Yundong, complaining to himself, "Oh my god, how can I take back what I just said? Am I slapping myself in the face here?"
However, when his eyes fell on the lobby manager, an idea suddenly came to his mind. "Got it, I'll sacrifice another so I can survive! I've found someone to take the blame!"
Xiao Liu pointed at the lobby manager and said loudly, "Manager Wang knows best. Let him tell us!"
Manager Wang was so angry that he almost began flinging curses. "F*ck! Not only do you often traipse around with a few whores and blackmail people for money, but you also want to make trouble and frame me now!? You son of a b*tch!"
Although he was fuming, he still had to say something. He wiped the sweat from his brow and said in a low voice, "In fact, this is just a small misunderstanding. Young Master Li is eager to save people. Hah, it's okay, it's okay. It's only a small matter!"
As he spoke, he suddenly had an idea. "Damn, these two bad cops want to push this problem onto me. Why can't I push it to others instead?"
With this, he turned his head and shouted to the several security guards behind him, "Are you injured?"
The security guards were dumbfounded. They hadn't expected that this great responsibility would be shunted onto them one after another and they began cursing under their breath. Unfortunately, this lobby manager was the younger brother of Di Hao chairman's new lover, soo matter how much they wanted to grumble, they didn't dare to offend him.
The security guards all said with forlorn faces, "No, we are not injured!"
Manager Wang snapped angrily, "Well, if you're not injured, why are you yelling? Don't you idiots see what's going on!? You almost caused us to be misunderstood."
The security guards felt so wronged that they were on the brink of tears. They lowered their heads and dared not say anything despite their rage.
Seeing this, Li Yundong chimed in, "Don't blame them. It's my fault. Let's just forget it."
Unexpectedly, Director Gong suddenly shouted loudly in response, "No, this matter absolutely can't be left like this!"
At this time, no one could stop themselves from looking at the director with great curiosity. They thought to themselves, "Is this director going to go crazy again and enforce the law impartially?"
Director Gong said righteously, "What does Young Master Li mean by coming to Di Hao so late to save people? This is the spirit of self-sacrifice! This is a kind of chivalrous spirit! And this is a kind of display of dedication that is missing in our modern society! This kind of character must be strongly publicized and promoted! We should let everyone in Tiannan City know of Young Master Li's chivalry!"
Hearing this, everyone around him almost vomited on the spot. They all looked at Director Gong with a strange look in their eyes and thought to themselves, "It was you who wanted to arrest him before. Now it's enough that you haven't arrested him, but you're flattering him shamelessly? Isn't it just disgusting?"
Cao Yi couldn't help but look disdainfully at the head of the Public Security Bureau, who was clearly a grand champion master of using the poker-face, and curse secretly.
Everyone liked to be flattered, and Li Yundong was no exception, but he couldn't bear such heavyweight flattery. He didn't know whether to laugh or cry. "Director Gong, is it totally unnecessary?"
Director Gong thought that Li Yundong was just pretending to be polite. He dragged out his words and said, "Hey! Young Master Li, what are you talking about? Why is it unnecessary? This is a great opportunity for us to publicize and educate the general public!"
Li Yundong smiled bitterly to himself. He muttered in his heart, "I guess after you publicize it, I will become a crown prince in the eyes of the common people!"
Li Yundong quickly waved his hand and said, "No, no, it's really unnecessary. I should keep a low profile!"
Director Gong suddenly understood. With admiration written all over his face, he said, "Ah, well, Young Master Li's realm is high. I really admire you!"
Li Yundong laughed dryly and replied, "You flatter me, Director Gong. Actually, I have a favor to ask of you." After that, he whispered directly into Director Gong's ear. Director Gong was immediately overjoyed when he heard whatever Li Yundong had said. He patted Li Yundong's chest and said, "No problem. When do you want this report? I'll bring it straight to you."
Li Yundong thought for a moment before replying, "You'd better hand it to me as soon as possible. Other than that, I'll settle the matter here privately with Manager Wang. We don't need to make things difficult."
He spoke casually, but Director Gong and Manager Wang both listened with sincerity.
Director Gong chuckled and said, "Well, well, you can make your own agreement. If you encounter any problems during negotiation, Young Master Li, you can tell me!" As he said this, he shot a deliberate glance at Manager Wang.
Manager Wang immediately shivered and ground his teeth in anger. "Damn it, this son of a b*tch, Director Gong is threatening me! I'm going to lose money again today! How much will it take to satisfy him!"
Thinking of this, Manager Wang pinched his trouser pocket tightly with his hand. He forced a smile over his face and said to Li Yundong, "Young Master Li, may I speak to you alone?"
Li Yundong nodded and walked over with Manager Wang to an empty corner of the corridor. Just as he was about to speak, Manager Wang rushed to say, "Young Master Li, I know that I was blind today and inadvertently offended you. Please be merciful and give me a chance. How much do you want as compensation? Name a price. As long as I can afford it, I will send it to you without hesitation!"
Li Yundong was stunned when he heard that. He thought to himself, "No way. I was the one who caused all of the problems. How could it be that he's the one who's going to pay for my mistakes?"
When Manager Wang saw that Li Yundong's expression was one of stupefaction, his heart trembled, and he gritted his teeth and said, "Young Master Li, how about one hundred thousand yuan? What do you think?"
Li Yundong was shocked and thought to himself, "Oh my God, I can get one hundred thousand yuan for such a small thing? This is more powerful than running scams!"
Manager Wang saw that Li Yundong was still silent, and his heart flooded with hatred at the sight. "Young Master Li, it's not easy for us to do business. Please try to be considerate of me. I'll offer you two hundred thousand yuan. What do you think?"
Li Yundong saw that Manager Wang's eyes had gone bloodshot and his gaze was as ferocious as if he wanted to bargain with his own mother. He quickly shook his head and said, "No, no, I didn't mean that!"
Manager Wang's face turned pale and he cried in his heart. "Damn it, what do you mean? Don't you want money? Then what do you want? The woman beside you is so beautiful and a freaking celebrity. I don't need to find a woman for you, right!? You want neither money nor women, so what do you actually want? Ah, right, Director Gong said that this guy opened a teahouse before, didn't he? Could it be possible that...
“Yes, it must be so. If I directly give him money, he'll be afraid of owing me, so he definitely wants me to buy his teahouse coupons instead. Humph, what a good plan!"
This idea came to Manager Wang, who then said, "Young Master Li, I know that you have a teahouse. How about I publicly use about two hundred thousand yuan to purchase your teahouse coupons every year?”
Li Yundong was completely dumbfounded. "Is this guy out of his mind? Is he so rich that he doesn't know what to do with his cash?"
Manager Wang saw that Li Yundong was still not saying anything. He thought that Li Yundong was rejecting him, so he tentatively asked, "Three hundred thousand yuan? Young Master Li, please respond to me! Oh, I beg you. Four hundred thousand, four hundred thousand and not a penny more! I won't be able to explain myself to my superior!"
Only then did Li Yundong come to his senses. With a strange look on his face, he thought to himself, "Is this guy treating me like a spoilt prince who likes to blackmail others?"
Manager Wang's heart trembled when he saw Li Yundong's strange expression. Suddenly, he gritted his teeth and said, "Five hundred thousand yuan. Young Master Li, I'm being very sincere! Please respond to me!"
Li Yundong saw that Manager Wang was being pushed over the edge. If he didn't say anything more, this guy might even go ahead and dig up his ancestral grave in order to show his sincerity. He quickly said, "Enough, that's enough."
Manager Wang finally breathed a sigh of relief. At that moment, he only wanted to get this villain away as soon as possible. He did not care about anything else.
Manager Wang immediately said, "Young Master Li, I am a man of my word! Tomorrow, I will send someone to your teahouse to handle the formalities. Don't worry, I dare not lie to you!"
Li Yundong smiled bitterly and said, "No, no."
Manager Wang trembled with fear. His legs trembled as he thought to himself, "What else does he want from me? Oh my god, I'd better run away while I still can! As I can't offend to him, can I at least hide?"
He didn't wait for Li Yundong to speak again. He grabbed and shook his hand hard, saying forcefully, "It's settled. Young Master Li, I need to deal with some other things now. I will apologize to you later!"
After that, he turned around and scurried off as if someone had lit a fire beneath his buttocks.
Li Yundong was stunned, rooted to the spot. He didn't know whether to laugh or cry. "Damn it, am I so terrible? Will I never have a chance to be a good person?“
But on second thought, he couldn't help but secretly sigh at the strength of secular power. "A misunderstanding is enough to solve the teahouse's business problem. It's equivalent to signing a five hundred thousand yuan business order!
”Should I accept the money or not?"
Li Yundong could do nothing but smile bitterly.
Just as he was hesitating over whether to return the money or not, he suddenly heard Cao Kefei shouting his name from behind.
He looked back and saw her dressed in fur clothing, looking graceful and noble.
Li Yundong was stunned. He didn't know what she was thinking. He felt like her words were dripping with irony and mockery.
Li Yundong recalled a certain sentence and couldn't help but laugh out loud. "It's lucky that not everyone the world knows the king!"
After laughing for a while, he noticed that Cao Kefei was carrying a bag with her. Liu Fei'er and her agent, Sister Hong, were also standing next to her, as if they were all going out together. He asked curiously, "Where are you going?"
Cao Kefei smiled and said, "So many things have happened, and Liu Fei'er's whereabouts have also been discovered by her fans. We have to hurry back to Sanya."
Li Yundong smiled. "Ah, in that case, please be careful on your way back!"
Sister Hong glanced at Li Yundong with a strange look. After everything she had experienced, she no longer dared to stare directly at him.
Liu Fei'er looked at Li Yundong with some reluctance, then waved her hand and smiled sweetly. "Hey, Immortal Li, I'm leaving now. You can come to visit me and the crew when you're free!"
He smiled and waved his hand at her. "Sure, I'll come when I'm free!"
Then Li Yundong suddenly said to Cao Kefei, "By the way, President Cao, could you stay for a couple of days to help me with something?"
Cao Kefei didn't want to leave, but she hadn't been able to find a reason to stay. When she heard Li Yundong's words, she was immediately delighted and said without hesitation, "Okay!"
Liu Fei'er snorted. "You're boy crazy! Sister Cao, you've gone too far. I'm not talking to you anymore!"
Cao Kefei smiled and pinched her cheek as she said, "Aw, come on. I'll compensate you when I get back! Be a good girl. The crew is waiting for you to go back and shoot the film. They can’t do it without you, but I'm not important!"
Liu Fei'er snorted. Beside her, Sister Hong also tried to persuade her. "Fei'er, listen to President Cao. You should go back. Do you want to stay here and see the headlines of Tiannan Daily's entertainment section tomorrow?"
Liu Fei'er then said resentfully, "Well, you two don't have to back each other up! I get it!" After that, she felt downhearted and stepped into the elevator.
Li Yundong watched her and her agent's figures disappear from sight, and then he whispered a few words to Cao Kefei.
She was slightly surprised and unthinkingly blurted out, "You want me to continue pretending to be dead?"
Li Yundong smiled. "No, so many people have already seen that you are actually alive. I just want you to continue pretending to be half-dead!"
"Eh? Why?" Cao Kefei asked uncomprehendingly.
Li Yundong smiled confidently. "It's very simple. Don't you want to know who wants to kill you? Hum, this is called ‘giving someone a taste of their own medicine’!"
