Lin Momo understood Qin Haodong. If the fire broke out again, she really didn’t know how to deal with it. She could not spray it with a fire extinguisher.
But she said in worry, “Tang Tang is so small, would it be dangerous to go to a place like Shennongjia?”
“There must be a danger. As a warrior, I always face all kinds of dangers. However, danger always coexists with opportunities. Only when there is a danger, can I be promoted. I will try my best to protect Tang Tang. As long as I am alive, my daughter will not be hurt.”
Lin Momo was very clear about Qin Haodong’s love for the little fellow and believed what he said. After hesitating for a moment, she said, “Well, I agree that Tang Tang goes to Shennongjia with you, but you must be careful. You must come back safely.”
“Don’t worry, we’ll be all right.”
Qin Haodong was not too worried about this kind of exploration. He had explored all kinds of famous mountains and rivers and entered all kinds of dangerous forbidden places when he was cultivating. He had a rich experience. Although his cultivation downgraded now, he knew all kinds of tactics and he was confident that he could solve all kinds of problems he encountered.
In this way, the next day Qin Haodong left Jiangnan City with the little fellow and flew directly to Shennongjia, Hubei Province.
Shennongjia was one of the most mysterious areas in China. Legend had it that the emperor Shennong, the ancestor of Huaxia, built trellis here. He collected herbs to save the people from dying, and he taught the people the name of all the crops.
Shennong, an ancient sage, had a lofty position in the hearts of the Chinese people. Taoists respected him as a sacred emperor. The legend of Shennong tasting herbs was well known among the Huaxia’s people. It was he who initiated the traditional Chinese medicine culture which had been passed down through generations.
Qin Haodong had investigated Shennongjia, where there were 1618 square kilometers of forest area. Much of the place had not been explored by human beings, maintaining the original ecological environment. Because of this, there were many rumors about Shennongjia that unknown things such as savages existed in Shennongjia.
In recent years, many scientific expeditions and folk tours had come to Shennongjia to conquer this unknown area. As a result, many people had lost their tracks after entering Shennongjia. Although the government had carried out many rescue operations, still nothing, even a body, was found.
However, with economic development, Shennongjia had developed a large number of tourism resources, and tourists came here in an endless stream.
According to the map drawn by Dilong, they would first cross the tourist area, and then go deep into Shennongjia. Because of this, Qin Haodong and the little fellow could follow the tourists to Shennongjia slowly. They could enjoy the view on the way.
A day later, they had crossed the periphery of Shennongjia to the edge of the tourist area, where there were fewer tourists than before.
Towards noon, the little fellow cried, “Papa, I’m hungry!”
“Let’s eat then.”
Qin Haodong was just about to take food out of the storage ring when he saw a farmhouse restaurant with a sign not far ahead. They would soon go deep into Shennongjia depopulated land, and it was impossible to meet a restaurant again. So Qin Haodong changed his mind and took the little fellow to the restaurant.
The hotel was entirely of wooden structure and looked a little shabby. There was a sign hanging at the door, which wrote in a crooked way, “Game Restaurant”.
Immediately after Qin Haodong entered, a fat middle-aged boss greeted him and asked enthusiastically, “What do you want to eat, young man?”
“Tang Tang, what would you like to eat?”
Qin Haodong asked the little fellow.
“I want noodles,” cried the little fellow.
“Well, we’ll have two bowls of noodles.”
Qin Haodong opened the simple menu on the table again. There were not many kinds of dishes and there were no green vegetables. The price of the dishes wasn’t too high, but because he didn’t want to waste, he ordered only a flavor pheasant and a sauced beef.
Because of the remote location and the scarcity of tourists, there were only two of them eating there. Soon two bowls of shredded meat noodles, a pheasant and a plate of sauced beef were served.
The noodles tasted OK. He took a chicken wing and two pieces of beef in the little fellow’s bowl, and then ate them himself.
After eating for a while, the little fellow reached out two tender fingers and picked out a hair from the bowl. “Papa, there’s hair in the noodles!”
Located in the deep mountains and old forests, Qin Haodong could not care too much about the hygienic conditions here. He raised his hand and beckoned to the fat boss, “Big brother, there is a hair in this bowl of noodles, please change it for another bowl.”
After hearing this, the owner’s greasy face sank down immediately. He said in a cold voice, “Young man, our restaurant is clean. How can there be hair in the noodles? Are you trying to blackmail us?”
Qin Haodong glanced at the restaurant owner, thinking that this fellow was not a pure countryman. He even knew the fashionable thing of blackmail.
He said, “Firstly, I didn’t let you compensate me. Secondly, I didn’t ask for a waiver of the bill. How could it be blackmail? Can’t I ask for a new one when there is a hair in your noodles?”
The restaurant shook his head and said, “No, this hair is not from our restaurant at all. It must have been brought by you.”
Qin Haodong didn’t bother to argue with him, so he said, “Well, I’ll buy another bowl, all right?”
The man said, “You can buy another bowl, but you have to pay for the meal first.”
Qin Haodong really didn’t want to talk to the fat restaurant owner. He said, “Well, how much is it? Come on. We’re in a hurry.”
The fat owner said, “It’s 404,000 yuan altogether. Knocking off the odd number of 4000, I’ll let it go for 40,000 yuan.
Qin Haodong laughed, put down his chopsticks and said, “Man, you just said I was blackmailing. Now you rip me off so hard?”
“I rip you off? My restaurant’s dishes are clearly marked with prices. You ordered the dishes when you saw the price, so I’m not ripping you off.”
The fat man said and threw the menu in front of Qin Haodong. “You see, it’s clearly written. A thread of noodle costs 20 yuan. There are 100 noodles in each bowl, totaling 2,000 yuan. The flavor chicken is 100 yuan per gram. This chicken is 2000 grams, a total of 200,000 yuan. Sauced beef 200 yuan apiece, there are a hundred pieces in this plate, thus a total of 200,000. These add up to exactly 404,000 yuan.”
Qin Haodong looked at the menu and saw that there were units behind the price tag, but the small word could not be seen without a microscope. Just now he didn’t pay attention to it at all.
He laughed and said, “Are you playing word games with me?”
The fat boss cried, “Cut the crap. It’s only right and proper to pay after eating at the restaurant. You have to pay for your meal! ”
Qin Haodong sneered and said, “What if I don’t have money to pay for it?”
“No money to pay?” The fat boss laughed and turned to the kitchen and cried, “Brothers, someone’s going to dine and dash.”
Then seven or eight big men suddenly rushed out of the kitchen. They were obviously ready in the kitchen, with all kinds of knives in their hands, and their faces were fierce.
The fat owner cried, “Well, do you pay or not?”
Qin Haodong said, “Buddy, you ask for 400,000 yuan. Why don’t you rob the bank? I don’t think you are robbing money. You just want to kidnap people.”
The fat boss laughed and said, “You’re right. If you have money, you can buy you two lives with 400,000 yuan. If you don’t have money, I will sell you two together.
“This little girl is so cute that she can sell for seventy to eighty thousand yuan. You, the gigolo boy, can also be liked by a rich woman. Although you can’t sell for four hundred thousand yuan, I’m satisfied with less money.”
He felt a little confused as he spoke. In the past, when he robbed, the guests always showed panic. After all, it was so remote here that no one would know that a person was killed and thrown into a deep mountain forest.
But the adult and the child in front of him were totally different, they were bold without any panic look, even the little fellow didn’t seem to see these people. She held the wing of the chicken and tucked into it.
Qin Haodong sneered and said, “Then try it.”
This was really a good place for killing and throwing dead bodies. If these guys really did anything to them recklessly, he wouldn’t mind sending them to hell.
The little fellow was also excited. While eating chicken wings, she cried, “Papa, beat bad people! Papa, beat the bad guys!”
“Boy, you will shed tears when you see the coffin.” The fat man waved to the people behind him. “Give them a lesson. Be careful not to hurt that little girl, or she will not be able to sell for money.”
Those people answered, “OK!” Then they waved their knives and rushed to Qin Haodong. When Qin Haodong was going to disable them all, a roar of motors came from the door, and two brand-new Hummer SUVs stopped at the door.
Seeing someone coming, the fat boss stopped with his men and turned to look at the door.
After the Hummer stopped, six people jumped out of the car. In front of them were a man and a woman. The man was tall and handsome. The woman was beautiful without any flaws. Her smile was fascinating. Men couldn’t help looking at her.
When the woman came into the restaurant, she was not panic at all when she saw the big men with knives. Instead, she laughed and said, “What’s the matter? Is this a restaurant or a robbery gang?”
“Auntie Xiaoxian, I’m here!”
The little fellow’s eyes were so sharp that she saw Hu Xiaoxian at once. She immediately cried out happily.
Qin Haodong was also surprised. Hu Xiaoxian left a note saying that she had gone on a special mission, but unexpectedly before long he met her here.
Having been blocked by the big men, Hu Xiaoxian had just seen Qin Haodong and the little fellow. She cried out in surprise, “Tang Tang, little man, why are you here?”
After leaving Qin Haodong’s house, she went back to meet her colleagues in Xuanzi Department of Xuanyuan Pavilion and made some preparations for going to the mountain, so she came a little late.
“I didn’t expect you were all together.” The fat boss stared at Hu Xiaoxian’s delicate face, showing a greedy look. He shouted to his subordinates, “Finish all of them off. Kill all the men, and leave the women, so that she can warm the bed for us at night.”
Those big men had already been fascinated by Hu Xiaoxian. They rushed up with a howl immediately after they got the order. They waved their knives and attacked Hu Xiaoxian’s companions.
The young man beside Hu Xiaoxian, with a cold face, shouted to the four people behind him, “Break their limbs and throw them into the forest to feed the bears.”
The four of them rushed up immediately. All of them were first-rate masters, and all of them reached the 9th level of Overt Power.
When hooligans met warriors, the result was only one. That was, the hooligans were abused. Soon the several hooligans were thrown to the ground and all their limbs were broken. Their screams frightened the birds in the sky.
Only then did the fat boss realize that he had met the tough role. He turned his head to run, but Hu Xiaoxian kicked him to the ground.
