The middle-aged driver stopped chasing them and laughed with the money in his hands.
He had already owned the car for several years. If he sold it at a second-hand car market, it would cost up to 100,000 yuan at most. Since someone had paid 200,000 yuan for it, so how could he not be happy?
Qin Haodong gave full play to the speed of the Passat, which was no less than the off-road vehicle just then.
"This car is too subpar." Ye Qing sat in the co-pilot seat and patted the simple layout of the Passat, feeling somewhat dissatisfied.
Qin Haodong did not take it seriously and said, "Well, sister, its good enough to drive a car. Its better than walking back to the capital."
"Youre right," Ye Qing said, "Brother, you helped me improve my cultivation and saved me twice. How do you think I should repay you? Why dont you marry me?"
"Why come up with marriage again?"
Qin Haodong was speechless. Why did women always like to do this?
In the past, he had once heard a joke about a beauty saved by a man. If she liked the man, she would devote herself to him. If she didnt like him, she would say that she would do anything to repay him in the next life for saving her. Considering this point of view, he must be too handsome.
But he had enough girlfriends as it was; he didnt dare to have more. He quickly said, "Sister, forget it"
Barely halfway through his response, Ye Qing immediately unhappy. She said discontentedly, "Whats wrong? Do you think I am too old?"
"No! I dont!" Qin Haodong did not dare to provoke her. He quickly explained, "You are in your prime. You are a blooming flower. A beauty beyond compare"
After he said a series of compliments, Ye Qings face finally relaxed a lot. "Are you serious?"
"Of course. My words are as genuine as gold and silver."
Ye Qing asked, "Then why dont you like me?"
Qin Haodong said with a bitter face, "How dare I not like you, but now I have too many girlfriends.
"You havent seen all of them, some of them were not at home that day. Now, I am in trouble. Its not because I dont like you, but because I dont want to hurt you."
Speaking of this, Ye Qing immediately became interested. She asked, "Brother, how many girlfriends do you have?"
"I cant say for sure. Im not sure about it yet."
Qin Haodong didnt want to be questioned by her, so he changed the subject and said, "Sister, who were those guys? Why did they want to kill you?"
Speaking of the killers they had met, Ye Qing immediately cooled down and said, "Its all because of Han Zaixing. He must have been the one behind the assassination plan."
Seeing that he had successfully changed the topic, Qin Haodong breathed a sigh of relief and said, "Who is Han Zaixing? Does he have a grudge against you?"
Ye Qing said, "Han Zaixing is from the Han Family in the capital. He is the youngest son of Old Master Han and the most cunning one of the second generation descendants of the Han Family. The stalkers you caught the other day were sent by him.
"This guy has never been kind to my sister. He has always been thinking about the Haodong Group. I have always hated this person, and he also treats me as his stumbling block.
"After catching the two stalkers, I swept away all his spies in Shanghai. This guy was so ashamed by it that he became angry, so he wants to kill me.
"But from this, it can be seen that hes definitely going to attack Haodong Group. We have to hurry back."
Qin Haodong had heard of the seven great families in the capital, but he didnt know much about them. It was rare to meet a person who was familiar with the situation, so he could get more information.
He said, "Sister, can the three people be considered as masters in the Han family? How many masters can there be in the capital?"
This was what he cared about the most. Just then, there were three killers. If he fought with the Laoshan Mountain Swordsmen, he could kill them by relying on his Xuanyuan Sword.
However, it was impossible for him to fight with Xu Qingji head on, the shadow assassin who was at the seventh level of the supreme power realm. After all, there was a big gap between their levels.
It seemed that the capital was very different. The strength levels were much higher, compared with the martial world in Shanghai. The Sun family was also the biggest family in Shanghai, but their strongest master was at the second level of the supreme power realm. Any of the Laoshan Mountain Swordsmen could have defeated all the masters in Shanghai.
Ye Qing said, "Among the seven great families in the capital, honorary elders are generally divided into three classes. Masters from the first level to the third level of the supreme power realm are at the third-class, which belong to the lowest class among the elders.
"The third-class elders belong to the lowest class, so naturally, theres a large number of them. Each family has dozens of them.
"The ones between the fourth and sixth level of the supreme power realm are second-class honorary elders, and their number is much smaller. The two swordsmen of the Laoshan Mountain belonged to the second-class honorary elders of the Han family, whose status was higher than that of the third-class elders, but only at the medium level.
"So, the masters from the seventh level to the ninth level of the supreme power realm are the first-class honorary elders who enjoy a high status among all the families, especially the ninth level supreme power masters. Their status is not too far from the Master of each family.
"The Shadow Assassin, Xu Qingji, was the first-class honorary elder of the Han family, but his ranking is low. However, he has a unique assassination skill, and could barely reach the middle level among the first-class honorary elders."
Hearing this, Qin Haodong couldnt help but gasp. He thought that he was a master on earth since he had formed the Gold Core. He didnt expect that there would be so many supreme power masters in the capital.
It seemed that he had to make full use of his time to improve his cultivation. Otherwise, once he met the first-class honorary elders of the major families, he could only wait to be killed.
As long as he could reach the middle level of the Gold Core Realm, he might not be able to kill a level nine supreme power master, but at least he could rival a level eight supreme power master.
In order to get as much information as possible, he asked, "Who is the strongest among the seven great families in the capital?"
Ye Qing said, "The seven major families are not much different from each other. They are almost similar in strength, at least on the surface.
"At this level, in fact, the final competition was related with force. Whoever had more strength had the right to speak, and the economic strength was not the most important. If you had money but not enough strength as a guarantee, you would lose it in the end.
"Among the masters, the most important thing was the number of ninth level supreme power masters. A ninth level supreme power master was more important than ten eighth level supreme power masters.
"After years of development, the seven major great families of the capital have already reached a state of balance. There are at least two ninth level supreme power masters in each family. As for their hidden power, its hard to say."
Qin Haodong asked, "Isnt there anyone who is more powerful?"
"No," Ye Qing said, "Twenty years ago, the Qin family had a once-in-a-lifetime genius, who displayed astonishing talent in the area of martial arts. He was known as the most likely master to break through the bottleneck of the supreme power realm and reach the Saint Realm.
"Its a pity that the Qin family was too eager for a quick success and instant benefits. They insisted on controlling Qin Zonghengs marriage and made an alliance with the Yan family. Finally, Qin Zongheng ran away from home in a fit of anger broke all communications with them."
Qin Haodong suddenly thought of a problem and asked, "How is the Haodong Group compared with the Han family?"
"There cant be compared!" Ye Qing shook her head and said, "Although the Haodong Group has powerful financial resources, it can only be called a group. Its not a great family because theres no matching force to protect it.
"In the entire Haodong Group, I am the only one who has reached the seventh level of the supreme power realm. Sister Xuanyue is a third level supreme power master, and there are no other martial arts masters in our group.
"Think about it, how can this strength compare with the other families? If Sister Xuanyue didnt come from the Chu family, she would have been defeated by the other families."
Qin Haodong said, "You just killed three elders of the Han family, will it bring trouble to the Haodong Group?"
"I dont think so," Ye Qing said, "I guess it wasnt the Han family masters idea this time. More likely it was Han Zaixing who secretly mobilized the power of the family. Although three people died, it would not have a big impact on the strength of the Han family.
"If the Han family makes trouble for the Haodong Group in public, it would be a slap to the Chu familys face. After all, Sister Xuanyue was the favorite daughter of the Chu family master. Maybe it would cause a full-on war between the two major families.
"At present, theres a delicate balance between the seven major families in the capital. Once any of the two major families take the lead to start a war, whether they win or lose, once their strength is damaged, they will be eaten by the other five major families.
"Therefore, unless there is no other choice, no family would be foolish enough to start a dispute. After all, the masters of the major families are all experienced guys, and none of them are easy to deal with."
Qin Haodong nodded. Then they talked about some other topics. Unknowingly, they had reached the capital.
While in the Haodong Group, Chu Xuanyue received a message from Ye Qing, saying that Qin Haodong and herself were already on the way back to the capital.
She was extremely excited by the prospect of finally seeing his long lost son after twenty years. She tossed and turned in the room. Every few minutes, she would look at the clock on the wall, hoping that Qin Haodong would arrive sooner.
At this moment, there was a knock at the door. She quickly jumped back into bed and pretended to be weak. She said, "Come in."
As soon as the door opened, her assistant came in. She said, "Manager, Mr. Han is here. He said he wants to see you."
Chu Xuanyue waved her hand and said, "I wont see him. Tell him Im ill at the moment. I wont see anyone."
"Okay, I will tell him now."
The assistant agreed, but before she left the room, Han Zaixing came in, followed by an old man in a long robe.
He said happily, "Yue, why wont you see me? Are you still angry with me?"
Chu Xuanyue didnt expect him to come in. She frowned and said, "What are you doing here? Im ill now. I dont want to see outsiders."
"Yue, what are you saying? We grew up together. We were childhood playmates. How can you say I am an outsider?"
He pointed to the old man behind him and said, "I know youre unwell, so I invited Mr. Zhang Jingsheng to treat you."
Chu Xuanyue said, "I will look for a doctor by myself, thank you. Its none of your business."
Han Zaixing said, "Yue, health is the most important thing. Dont lose your temper. Let Mr. Zhang have a look at you."
Chu Xuanyue said, "No need. You may go now!"
"Why you dont need it? Is it because youre not sick?" Han Zaixing said that and looked at Chu Xuanyue with deep meaning.
Thinking that she pretended to be ill to meet her son, Chu Xuanyue was afraid of revealing a flaw, so she could only be patient. She said, "Is it necessary for me to pretend to be ill? Since you brought a doctor here, let him have a look!"
As she spoke, she stretched out her hand.
Zhang Jingsheng came to the head of the bed and placed his hand on Chu Xuanyues pulse. But at this moment, Chu Xuanyue felt her wrist grow numb, and then her whole body lost strength.
She said in her heart, "Oh no!"
This Zhang Jingsheng was not a doctor at all, but a supreme power master who took advantage of the diagnosis to control her. This was a trap set by Han Zaixing!
