Ye Qing said hurriedly, “Sister, you almost died when you left the Chu family. If you go back now, the family master of the Chu family will definitely confine you and you will never be able to leave the Chu family again.”
Chu Xuanyue slightly smiled and said, “So what? The Chu family is my family. I grew up there. If I can’t leave, then it can be regarded as me going home. This is nothing if it means keeping you safe.”
“Absolutely not. You and Haodong have just met. If you go back to the Chu family, then you two will never see each other again. I will bear the burden of the matter with the Han family alone…”
Seeing the two of them competing to sacrifice themselves to protect this family from the storm, Qin Haodong’s heart was moved. This was the sincere affection of a family.
However, he was Emperor Green Wood, so how could he let two women rush in front of him.
He said, “Mom, sister, you two don’t have to fight over this. This issue might not be as bad as you guys think.
“All these things occurred because of Han Zaixing. He lost four respected elders in one day. For now, he probably won’t dare let the Han family know. We can wait and see what happens.”
“Okay then, let’s do that.”
Just like Ye Qing had said, Chu Xuanyue had just been reunited with her son, so she naturally was reluctant to part ways unless she had to.
Qin Haodong said, “Mom, we talked all night and it’s dawn already. Let’s all take some rest. I am also tired, is there a spare room? I want to get some sleep.”
Chu Xuanyue said, “Since you’re tired, you can sleep here with me.”
She didn’t know if she would be imprisoned when she returned to the Chu family. Therefore, she didn’t want to be separated from her son for even a second.
Qin Haodong still had things to do; naturally, he wouldn’t stay with Chu Xuanyue. “I won’t be able to sleep if I stay with you,” he said, “It will also affect your rest. I will find an empty room to sleep for a while. We can talk in the afternoon.”
“Okay then, go and sleep first. I will cook some delicious food for you in the afternoon.” Chu Xuanyue turned towards Ye Qing and said, “Help your brother find a place to rest.”
There were many vacant rooms in the Haodong Group. Ye Qing took him directly to a room so he could rest.
Ye Qing left, but Qin Haodong did not rest. Instead, he began to contemplate.
At present, the Han family was definitely a behemoth to him. Not to mention two level nine Supreme Power realm experts, even a level seven Supreme Power realm expert would be difficult for him to fight against head-on.
How could he get the Han family to let this matter go and make sure they wouldn’t dare to retaliate against the Haodong Group in the future? This was a very difficult thing.
Also, there was that Han Zaixing. He first tried to assassinate Ye Qing, then he offended Qin Haodong’s mother. Such a person must not remain in this world.
Qin Haodong walked around the room with his hands behind his back. Then, he suddenly came up with a good idea that could solve all those problems.
Although his current cultivation had not yet reached the peak, he still had a mysterious method and 500 years of experience in cultivation. As long as he used them properly, he could definitely frighten the Han family. Even the seven major families of the Capital would not dare to provoke the Haodong Group.
Having made up his mind, he called Qi Waner.
Qi Waner was sleeping. She semi-consciously grabbed her phone. Seeing that it was Qin Haodong, she quickly pressed the answer button and said lazily, “Why are you calling me so early? Is it because you miss me?”
“I have something urgent to do. Please check the phone number of Han Zaixing from the Han family in the capital. It would be best if you can locate him.”
“Why are you looking him up?”
Qi Waner got out of bed and opened the laptop next to her while she spoke.
“There’s something I need to check with him.”
In order to not make Qi Waner worry, Qin Haodong did not reveal his real plan.
Qi Waner grabbed her computer and started tapping her 10 fingers while she continued, “Haodong, I’m telling you, the capital is not weaker than Shanghai. There are many experts there. You must be careful in everything you do. Especially the seven big families, you can’t afford to offend them with your current strength.
“If you encounter any problems, tell me. I can ask my father to help.”
Although Qin Haodong knew that Qi Waner was the eldest lady of the Qi family and had a high status, hierarchical families like the seven big families of the capital only had profit in their eyes. Therefore, the Qi family would never offend the Han family for Qi Waner’s sake.
Even if the Qi family was willing to help him, it could only temporarily suppress the problem. It wouldn’t fundamentally solve the threat from the Han family.
Qin Haodong said, “No need. You just need to help me locate Han Zaixing’s position. I can take care of the other things myself.”
Qi Waner’s hacking ability was definitely not fake. She quickly found Han Zaixing’s mobile number; at the same time, she created a trajectory map using the location of the mobile phone signal. Then, she sent it to Qin Haodong.
“Ever since he left the Haodong Group last night, he has been in the capital’s City Center Hospital. He is still there at the moment.”
Qin Haodong secretly breathed a sigh of relief when he heard this. For something as big as this, Han Zaixing would not report it to the family with his phone. Since he had yet to return to the Han family estate, it meant that he still had not reported the news to the Han family.
“Send me a location map of the Han family.”
“Okay. I already sent it.”
Qi Waner then asked, “Haodong, what on earth are you doing? You’re not planning on going after the Han family, are you?”
“Don’t worry, I won’t go to the Han family rashly. I will just go and wait for Han Zaixing outside the Han family’s house,” Qin Haodong said, “Help me monitor Han Zaixing’s movements and let me know when he leaves the hospital.”
He hung up the phone, then grabbed pen and paper to write a note. He stuck the note on the head of the bed. It said something along the lines of being too excited to sleep. It was his first time in the capital so he wanted to go out and look around. He told Chu Xuanyue and Ye Qing not to worry, as he would be back very soon.
After he finished writing, he opened the window and jumped down from the building. He landed without making a sound, just like a leaf floating down.
After he left the Haodong Group, he took a taxi and went straight to the Han family’s location.
Just like the several big families in Shanghai, large families like the Han family generally lived far away from the urban hustle and bustle. They lived in a huge manor on the outskirts of the city.
Half an hour later, Qin Haodong got out of the taxi. He stopped at around 500 meters away from the Han family’s house.
He looked at the enormous manor. It had been built on a mountain and it covered an area as wide as 100 acres. The manor was not decorated as luxuriously as the ones from the big families in Shanghai, but it looked more ancient and majestic.
He chose a hidden spot nearby, then set up a simple Concealing Magic Field. Afterwards, he sat cross-legged on the ground. He took out a jade talisman from his pocket and began to create a Taoist Talisman.
The Taoist Talisman had different levels. The lowest level was drawn with yellow paper and cinnabar. Its advantage was the low cost, so drawing it would be pretty simple. The disadvantage was that the minimal amount of the earth’s Spiritual Qi it could store, so the effect would be very poor.
A relatively better Taoist Talisman was drawn with a jade talisman. The jade could hold more earth’s Spiritual Qi, therefore the level of the Taoist Talisman produced would be higher. The difficulty would also be increased by a lot, requiring a large amount of raw materials.
Fortunately, Qin Haodong’s Storage Ring had a large number of jade pieces inside, so he didn’t need to worry about materials. After one hour, he had consecutively used more than 10 jade talismans. However, there were also a few glittering and translucent high-grade Taoist Talismans in his hand.
According to his plan, he prepared three Invisibility Talismans. Each one allowed him to be hidden for three minutes. It could hide all his force and block others from seeing him.
In addition, there were two Ascending Talismans, three Wind Talismans and one Thunder Talisman.
The Wind Talisman could increase the user’s speed and allow for the person to move like the wind. The Thunder Talisman could make the user sound like thunder, while the Ascending Talisman could make the user go up in the air step by step. Of course, there was a limit to how high the user could go. At most, the user could go up a hundred meters.
Qin Haodong put away the Taoist Talismans he had made, then took out a mirror and a disguising medicine. He began to change his appearance in front of the mirror.
Five minutes later, a middle-aged man at around 40 years old appeared in the mirror. However, his appearance did not change too much. He looked more like the Qin Zongheng in the picture next to Chu Xuanyue’s bed.
Qin Haodong nodded with satisfaction in front of the mirror. Then, he took out a robe and changed his clothes.
When he was almost ready, his mobile phone rang. It was Qi Waner.
When he answered, he heard Qi Waner say, “Han Zaixing has left the City Center Hospital and is headed towards the Han family’s manor. He will arrive in around 20 minutes.”
Qin Haodong raised the corners of his mouth and sneered. “He’s finally coming!”
That road had been built by the Han family to access their manor. There were very little cars on the road. Around 20 minutes later, he saw a Maybach sports car appear. Han Zaixing was the driver.
The day before, Han Zaixing had been beaten until his nose was bruised and his face swollen. Although he didn’t have any serious internal injuries, he didn’t immediately return to the Han family to save face. Instead, he stayed in the hospital to get treated.
He thought about it overnight. This time, he had ruined four respected elders because of his plan. One of them was Xu Qingji, a shadow assassin at the seventh level of the Supreme Power realm.
It was impossible for him to hide that number of deaths. After hesitating again and again, he decided to confess to the old man of the Han family.
He gritted his teeth in anger at the thought of Ye Qing. He ended looking like a pig after she dared to beat his handsome face. This time, even if he was to be punished by the family rules, he had to make the Haodong Group pay. He had to let them know that the Han family could not be provoked by anyone.
While he was thinking, he suddenly saw a figure appear in the middle of the road. The man was tall and dressed in a robe. His back was facing the car.
Han Zaixing was completely angry. When he saw something blocking his path, he immediately wound down the window and shouted, “Who the fuck are you? Are you crazy? Move away quickly. Do you think that I won’t kill you?”
After hearing the shouting, the person slowly turned around. When Han Zaixing saw the person’s appearance, he was suddenly stupefied. He stammered, “You…You…You…You are Qin Zongheng?”
Although 21 years had passed, everyone knew about Qin Zongheng’s strength back then in the capital. As the young master of the Han family, Han Zaixing naturally knew about him.
However, there had been no news of Qin Zongheng in all these years. Han Zaixing thought he was dead, which was why he had dared to go after Chu Xuanyue. If Qin Zongheng were alive, Han Zaixing wouldn’t have dared even if he had 100 guts.
The person who had disappeared for 21 years had suddenly appeared in front of him. This shocked and frightened him. If it wasn’t for the sunlight, he would have thought that he was seeing a ghost.
This Qin Zongheng was naturally Qin Haodong in disguise. He looked at Han Zaixing coldly and said, “It’s rare for you to still recognize me, even though so many years have passed.”
When he spoke, he used a special method to change his voice. It sounded more mature and calmer, without any weak points.
“I re… recognize… you… What can I do for you?”
As long as one does things the right way, there would be nothing to be afraid of. Han Zaixing had just bullied Chu Xuanyue. Although he didn’t succeed, he would be killed by Qin Zongheng if he found out.
Because of his guilty conscience, he was extremely nervous as he spoke.
Qin Haodong stared coldly and shouted, “Han Zaixing, don’t you know that Chu Xuanyue is my woman? You dare to go after her. Are you looking down on me, Qin Zongheng?”
