Li Yundong turned around and walked to the door, where he saw a tall woman in a professional suit standing. He asked curiously, "Who are you?"
When the woman saw him, a bright smile immediately appeared on her face, and she said flatteringly, "Childe Li, right? I am an employee of Di Hao. My manager has asked me to deliver something."
Li Yundong realized that he had accidentally blackmailed some money in Di Hao yesterday. Now, early in the morning, this sucker had come to give money to him!
He didn't know whether to start crying or laughing at this point. He simply shook his head and said, "Forget it. Take all of this back."
The woman's face suddenly changed, and her voice trembled a little as she said, "Childe Li, how can you refuse the money? Didn't we agree?"
He shook his head and said, "I really can't accept it. Please just take it back."
The woman was so anxious and scared that she almost burst into tears. "Childe Li, don't embarrass me. I'm just an employee. You can't make me lose my job!"
Li Yundong frowned and was about to speak when he saw Zi Yuan walk out. She looked at them and asked softly, "What happened?"
In a quick whisper, Li Yundong explained the matter, and Zi Yuan suddenly laughed. She looked at the distressed woman and whispered to Li Yundong, "You sure gained a lot from going out yesterday. How come I didn't know about it?"
He smiled broadly and said, "I forgot to tell you yesterday. What's more, it's not something I'm proud of! I didn't have the nerve to say it. I didn't expect that the other party would come to me today!"
Zi Yuan said with a smile, "Can't people come to our home? How cruel you are! You stole half a million from him without even opening your mouth. If you ever do decide to open your mouth, you'll send Bill Gates begging for food!"
He smiled bitterly at this. "Come on, don't laugh at my troubles. What should I do?"
"Well, why don't you just take it?" she asked, her tone slightly incredulous.
Li Yundong was shocked. "Did I hear wrong? Shenxian jiějie is actually encouraging me to accept such money?"
She gave a bright, tinkling laugh. "Have you ever seen Buddhists refuse to take money for incense? Do you think these monks don't know that there is a lot of money that is not clean? It doesn't matter whether money is clean or not, only who uses it! If you think that the money is unclean, you can just use it in a clean place. Haha, if cultivators all thought like you, Amitayus, we would starve to death!"
Li Yundong couldn't help chuckling. He thought for no more than a moment before saying decisively, "Okay, I'll do as you say."
When the woman saw Li Yundong and Zi Yuan muttering to each other in low voices, she craned her neck to listen, but could catch only a few vague words, such as a cultivator, incense money, etc., which made her confused.
When Li Yundong turned around, the woman immediately looked at him. If he said no, she would immediately use her ability to turn on the water works. Anyway, she would never be able to go back if she could not complete the task.
Seeing the woman's resolve, he smiled and said, "Okay, I'll take it. Don't pretend to be so upset. It feels like I'm bullying you!"
The woman immediately breathed a sigh of relief and said with a smile, "Childe Li, you're so kind and generous. I really admire you!"
Li Yundong shook his head secretly when he heard this. "What kind of world is this? The one who gives money is the grandson, but the one who takes money becomes an uncle instead? Alas, this kind of world is just too emotionally moving!"
He then turned to Zi Yuan and said, "Since you have agreed to accept the money, you can handle the matter. I'll go first."
Zi Yuan glared at Li Yundong, feeling slightly ticked off. "You're asking me to clean up your own mess? Shame on you!"
Li Yundong was stunned. Subconsciously, he looked at Zi Yuan's hand and asked, "Which hand will you use to wipe for me?"
Zi Yuan was so embarrassed by this vulgar question that she gave Li Yundong a hard look and then strode over to her own residence. Without looking back, she said to the beauty who had brought the money, "Follow me."
After Li Yundong had finished speaking, he also felt that what he had said was inappropriate, but he simply gave a hollow laugh and walked back to his room.
When he had calmed down, he began saying to Zhou Qin, "Zhou Qin, when I was in the Zhuji phase, I walked to the Himalayas and finished my Zhuji training on the snowy mountain peaks. Are you also willing to go through this long and dangerous journey?"
In Li Yundong's view, although Zhou Qin had a resolute character, she had been born to a rich family after all, and she loved to be clean and tidy. It would be really difficult for her to go to Tibet as he had.
Zhou Qin seemed to understand Li Yundong's concerns. She smiled and said, "Master, I heard that when Zi Yuan was in Zhuji, she had to journey two thousand miles to reach her destination and finish her Zhuji phase. I think I can do what she can."
Li Yundong's eyes were full of appreciation. He nodded and said, "Well, take these powerful magical weapons with you and don't expose them."
She nodded seriously, holding the powerful magical weapons in her hands solemnly.
"Go and pack up now. You can leave in a minute."
She nodded affirmatively, then turned around and was about to enter the room when she heard the doorbell ring. Su Chan immediately jumped up to answer the door. When she did, she was immediately shocked and ran back to Li Yundong's side, where she whispered in his ear, "Yundong, there are two policemen at the door. Are they looking for you?"
Li Yundong thought to himself, "In the past, Su Chan would have shouted as soon as she saw the policeman. Now, this little girl is getting wiser."
He walked over to the door alone and saw two policemen standing there. They were the two policemen he had met last night. As soon as he came out, they immediately saluted to him. Officer Zhang, who had previously been clamoring to catch Li Yundong, said with an apologetic smile, "Mr. Li, we meet again."
Li Yundong looked him up and down and asked curiously, "Why are you here?"
Xiao Zhang's smile suddenly froze and he couldn't get any words out. He wanted to say something to soften the atmosphere, but he didn't know how.
Xiao Liu, the policeman next to him, was more clever. He quickly handed over a sealed bag in his hand and said with an obsequious smile, "Mr. Li, this is what Director Gong asked us to send."
Li Yundong calmly took the sealed bag from him and said casually, "Did Director Gong send you here?"
Officer Xiao Zhang suddenly began hurling abuse in his heart. "Nonsense, if the director had not ordered me to send you this sealed bag, I would not have come! It's just that you have a great father. Why are you so proud of it?"
Xiao Zhang was not happy, but Xiao Liu's smile became more and more brilliant and he said, "Mr. Li's guess is right. Director Gong really asked us to come. He said that we offended Mr. Li last night and that we ought to apologize today. We are here to express our regret."
Li Yundong smiled, glanced at them, and said, "In the future, you should be more humane as members of law enforcement. The rights that people give you are not for you to just show off with."
Xiao Liu nodded heavily at once. "Mr. Li is right." Xiao Liu then poked Xiao Zhang secretly with his elbow, making him force a smile and say dryly, "Yes, Mr. Li, you are right!"
Li Yundong saw that his smile was more of a grimace, and that Xiao Liu beside him highly embarrassed. He couldn't help but sigh in his heart. He didn't want to embarrass them further, so he simply waved his hand and said, "Forget it, you can go. I still have something to do, so I won't entertain you."
Xiao Liu quickly smiled and said, "Mr. Li, you're busy, so we won't bother you any longer!" After that, he took his companion next to him and saluted. After seeing Li Yundong turn and return to his room, they also dared to turn and leave.
Once they were out of the community, Xiao Zhang said disdainfully, "Li Yundong is younger than I am, and he thinks he can teach me a lesson!"
Xiao Liu shook his head and said, "Although Li Yundong is young, his bearing is really nothing to sneeze at. You saw his background last night, and even Director Gong flattered him politely. If he wanted to embarrass us, it would have been easy, but he didn't. That's what's called being broad-minded!"
Xiao Zhang sneered and said, "Hum, if I had powerful parents, I would also have a broad mind!"
Xiao Liu couldn't help sighing when he heard this. "Agh, you can't hate your father for not being strong."
They talked all the way out of the area. Li Yundong was naturally ignorant of the discussion between them. He held the sealed bag in his hand. Thinking of the words and attitude of the two policemen just now, he suddenly felt a little emotional.
At this moment, he completely understood why all sects had tried their best to get close to royalty since ancient times. Emperor Wu of the Northern Wei Dynasty had put Kou Qianzhi in an important position. Therefore, the rise of the Northern Tian-shi Taoism had occurred. Emperor Song Hui of the Song Dynasty had believed in Mount Longhu. Therefore, Zhengyi School had dominated the whole country. Genghis Khan and Kublai had held Qiu Chuji in high esteem, so the Quanzhen Sect had become famous all over the world.
When a sect and secular powers merged into one, the energy the combination created would be immeasurable.
In the past, when he had encountered such a thing, he would definitely have suffered a great loss. But now, even the director of the Public Security Bureau flattered him, and the policeman, who had been pompous before, also bowed and scraped.
Where had all this come from?
Li Yundong was very sure that all of this had come from Zhou Qin's family power and background, but why did Zhou Qin favor him?
It was cultivation. She was attracted to the power of cultivation.
"Cultivation is easy in the Six Gates..." Li Yundong gripped the sealed bag in his hand and suddenly sighed softly in his heart. He shook his head and threw this little episode out of his mind, then opened the sealed bag and took a document out of it. After taking a look at it, he became lost in thought.
It was not until Li Yundong returned to his senses that he noticed that Su Chan and the others were looking at him, not daring to take a breath.
Seeing that Li Yundong was no longer deep in thought, Su Chan asked, "Yundong, what's wrong with you?"
He smiled and said, "Nothing." Then, he added to her in a whisper, "Come with me to my room."
