“Dear classmates, thank you for attending today’s class reunion.” Geng Minghui lifted his glasses and continued with a stiff smile, “I’m really sorry. I’m too busy at work, so I’m a little late. Please forgive me.”
At this time, Pang Cheng beside him said, “Our monitor Minghui is now making steady progress in his official career. He has become the Secretary of Magistrate Zhao after a short time of working. He is the real No. 2 chief of Wufeng County, absolutely the model of our class.”
Hearing that Geng Minghui had become the Secretary of the county magistrate, the classmates present applauded one after another, and many of them showed envious eyes. It was absolutely a privilege to be a secretary to the county magistrate in such a small place as Wufeng County, and he would be respected everywhere.
Only Qin Haodong kept teasing his daughter without even looking at Geng Minghui. He didn’t even care about Zhao Yang, the magistrate, let alone his secretary.
Geng Minghui took a look at Qin Haodong. His eyes showed dissatisfaction, which soon passed away.
He waved his hands to the applauding classmates and said, “Don’t listen to Pang Cheng’s nonsense. There are many students who are better than me, but Magistrate Zhao really values me and entrusts me with everything.
The county government just held a land tender meeting in the afternoon, and then Magistrate Zhao ordered me to reserve a private room of this hotel to entertain VIPs in the evening, so I came a little late.”
Geng Minghui was very modest in his mouth, but the proud look on his face could not be concealed at all.
Pang Cheng flattered him, “You are the No. 2 chief. It’s proper for you to be busy with your work. We are old classmates. No one has any opinions.”
Geng Minghui obviously liked this flattery. He clapped Pang Cheng on the shoulder and said, “After graduation, many people haven’t seen each other for seven or eight years. I’d like to make an introduction. Now Pang Cheng is a great entrepreneur and heir of Pon’s Group. He’s definitely a young and promising rich of Wufeng County.
“Pang Cheng is the representative of Pon’s Group at the land bidding meeting just held in Wufeng County. He is a strong competitor for this bidding. He represents our Wufeng County to compete with Lin’s Group in bidding for this land.”
The classmates in the room first applauded, and then they remembered that the president of Lin’s Group was sitting next to Qin Haodong.
“You flatter me. A businessman like me still depends on the care of No. 2 chief to survive,” Pang Cheng said proudly, “Our Pon’s Group is absolutely bound to win this land bidding. We are going to build the largest recreation city in Wufeng County and even in Jiangnan City. You can go to play free of charge.”
After that, he made a look that he had just seen Lin Momo and said in surprise, “Oh, isn’t this the president of Lin’s Group? “I didn’t expect to see you here. I’m sorry. My tongue just slipped.”
Lin Momo just looked at him coldly and did not speak. Enterprises of the size of Pon’s Group only have some voice in small places like Wufeng County. No enterprise could be compared with Lin’s Group at all. It was hundreds of times smaller than Lin’s Group in terms of the industrial scale.
Geng Minghui said, “Just now I said that many of our classmates are better than me. For example, our classmate Qin Haodong is very good at living off women. He succeeded in hooking up with the president of Lin’s Group, a rich woman worth tens of billions of dollars. It’s really worth learning.”
After he said this, the room immediately quieted down that a falling needle could be heard, everyone knew that Geng Minghui was embarrassing Qin Haodong, which must have something to do with Zhang Xiaohui’s complaint just now.
Everyone’s eyes were focused on Qin Haodong, but Qin Haodong did not care, still with a faint smile on his face. Emperor Qingmu’s moods depended entirely on his own mind. No one else had the right to comment on him. Such a small figure as Geng Minghui was not in his eyes at all.
Ma Wenzhuo next to him was unhappy, so he said, “Geng Minghui, what do you mean? Who is the toy boy?”
Geng Minghui said with a sneer, “Who else could it be? Of course, it’s our buddyQin Haodong. When we were still in school, I saw that he had the potential to be a toy boy. It came true so soon!”
Pang Cheng had seen Geng Minghui’s intention. He said, “You don’t say, Qin Haodong really has the potential to be a toy boy. If president Lin gets tired of you one day, come to my recreation city, the business will be absolutely good. Men and women can be fascinated by you.”
Compared with Geng Minghui, this fellow’s words hurt his self-esteem more. Qin Haodong’s face slowly cooled down.
Ma Wenzhuo said angrily, “Pang Cheng, Geng Minghui, what are you doing? Insulting your classmate like that? You’ve gone too far!”
Geng Minghui said with a cold face, “Am I overdoing it or is he overdoing it? Relying on a rich woman and bullying our female classmate.”
Pang Cheng said, “I really feel ashamed to be a classmate with such a person.”
Geng Minghui pointed to Qin Haodong and cried, “Today, there are all kinds of dishes here, but we have not prepared dinner. Get out of here.”
The students in the room were in a moment of solemnity. It was unexpected that Geng Minghui would drive Qin Haodong out directly, which meant that he cut off the relationship with his classmates directly. And if Qin Haodong was expelled, he would be even more disgraced. Even if he saw his classmates again, he would never be able to raise his head.
But at this time, everyone kept silent. Compared with Qin Haodong, they dared not offend Geng Minghui and Pang Cheng. These two men had both money and power. Provoking them would cut the road of surviving in Wufeng County in the future.
Zhang Xiaohui looked at Qin Haodong proudly and cried, “Did you hear that? Toyboy, as a man, you do not work hard but live off a woman. What a shame.”
Ma Wenzhuo was just about to get angry, but he was pulled by Qin Haodong. He looked up and said faintly, “Do you really want to drive me away regardless of our affection as classmates? Are you sure you don’t regret it?”
Geng Minghui sneered and said, “Don’t frighten me, toyboy. Don’t think you’re something with Lin’s group behind you. This is Wufeng County. It’s my territory. Lin’s Group is nothing here.
To tell you the truth, Magistrate Zhao has decided the result of this afternoon’s tender meeting. That land belongs to my brother Pang Cheng. You don’t even think about it…”
He was talking, and suddenly, his cell phone rang in his pocket. Geng Minghui took out the phone and looked at it. His arrogant face became flattering. “Hello, Magistrate Zhao, I’m Minghui. Do you have any instruction?
“Oh You have arrived, let me go to the hotel gate to meet the guests, you can rest assured, I will be there right away.
After hanging up the phone, he immediately returned to his haughty face and shouted to Qin Haodong, “Toyboy, have you heard that? Get out of here with your woman. I have something important to do.”
Qin Haodong smiled coldly and said, “Aren’t you going out to pick up your guests? You don’t have to go. I’m your guest.”
As soon as the words came out, all the people in the room looked surprised. They didn’t understand how Qin Haodong said such words. In everyone’s eyes, Qin Haodong lived off Lin Momo. Even Magistrate Zhao despised Lin’s Group. How could he become a distinguished guest of him?
After a little astonishment, Geng Minghui and the other two burst out laughing. Zhang Xiaohui said sarcastically, “Qin Haodong, you can really stick gold on your face. If you are a guest of Magistrate Zhao, then I am the Queen of England.”
Pang Cheng laughed and said, “Then I am the richest man in the world.”
Qin Haodong didn’t bother to deal with these fools. He took his cell phone out of his pocket and dialed Zhao Yang’s telephone number. “Magistrate Zhao, did you arrive? I’m in VIP Room No. 1 of Murraya Hotel. You come here.”
Zhao Yang was afraid that he was late, which made Qin Haodong unhappy. He was going to come to Murraya Hotel early. After receiving his phone call, he said politely, “I’m sorry, Mr. Qin, I’m late. Just a moment, I’ll be right there.”
Seeing Qin Haodong hanging up the phone, Geng Minghui laughed more wildly.
Geng Minghui pointed to Qin Haodong’s nose and cried, “Toyboy, no wonder you can get President Lin. You are so good at the pretense that it almost seems true. If Magistrate Zhao invites you to dinner, then I will be the Premier of the State…”
While he was talking in spittle, suddenly the door of the compartment was opened and Zhao Yang appeared at the door with a big smile on his face.
After seeing Zhao Yang, Geng Minghui instantly petrified, and the smile on his face immediately became uglier than crying.
However, he still did not believe that the person invited by Zhao Yang was Qin Haodong. He thought it was just a coincidence. He hurried to say, “Ma-Magistrate Zhao, here you are. I’ll go out to receive the guest now.”
Zhao Yang looked at him discontentedly and said, “No, our noble guest is here. Who else do you want to receive?”
Then he went over to shake hands with Qin Haodong enthusiastically and said apologetically, “I’m sorry Mr. Qin, I invited you to dinner, but I’m late.”
At this time, everyone was shocked, even a fool could tell the VIP was Qin Haodong. What the hell was going on here? Why did Magistrate Zhao treat Qin Haodong so politely? Was it because of Lin’s Group? No, Zhao Yang didn’t talk to Lin Momo after he entered the door. Obviously, it had nothing to do with Lin’s Group.
The only answer was that Qin Haodong’s own identity was very special, which made Zhao Yang so respectful. But Qin Haodong was their junior high school classmate, and his family was not rich or powerful. What happened?
Ignoring other people’s fantasies, Qin Haodong said lightly, “It’s not that Magistrate Zhao is late, but that I am early. I have a class reunion here.”
Zhao Yang laughed and said, “Oh! It turned out that Minghui and Mr. Qin were classmates. I really haven’t heard it from him.
Qin Haodong said, “Yes, but not now. Just now he and Pang Cheng were going to drive me away. They think It’s a shame to be classmates with a person like me.”
Geng Minghui had just returned to his senses at this time. He regretted that he had offended the person whom Magistrate Zhao respected very much for the sake of Zhang Xiaohui and Zhu Linlin. This was not worth it at all. But who would have thought that Qin Haodong had such a relationship with Magistrate Zhao?
Pang Cheng was at a loss. The reason why he opposed Qin Haodong was to please Geng Minghui, the Secretary of the county magistrate. Unexpectedly, he offended the county magistrate, the loss would outweigh the gain.
Looking at Zhao Yang’s sinking face, he quickly explained. “Magistrate Zhao, in fact, this is a misunderstanding, I haven’t seen Haodong for a long time, I was just making fun of him, really!”
