A luxurious manor was being built on a hill in the suburbs of Hong Kong.
Hong Kong was just a small island despite its prosperous economy. Thus, there was not enough land, and it was very expensive to buy a house here. But the owner of this manor possessed this mountain top, which was enough to prove that he was a super-rich.
Mei Zhanlong, who was known as the best practitioner in Hong Kong, was this place’s owner.
There was a huge parking lot in front of the manor and all kinds of luxury cars were parking here now. They all came here to visit Mei Zhanlong.
In the living room of the manor, an old man in his 60s was talking obsequiously to a middle-aged man who seemed to be in his 30s or 40s.
The old man was also a well-known rich individual in Hong Kong. Although he was not a super-rich, he still had more than 10 billion of assets.
But the middle-aged man was impatient with him because his master was Mei Zhanlong and he was the steward of this manor.
He said impatiently, “Mr. Zhang, I’ve told you that Master Mei is practicing his skills and has no time to see you.”
The old man pleaded, “Young man, could you please help me? I do have urgent affairs and need Master Mei’s guidance. I can increase the consulting fee by 10 times! How about 10 million yuan?”
“10 million yuan?” The steward teased him and said indifferently, “Do you really think that Master Mei will change his mind for higher fees? The reason why Master charges fees for consulting is that he doesn’t want too many people to come here. Money means nothing to him.”
The old man nodded repeatedly and said flatteringly, “Yes… yes… yes… I also know that. Master Mei is a detached master and doesn’t care about money. But I do have urgent affairs to consult him. Please, let me in.”
The steward pointed at the door and said impatiently, “There are so many people coming here to see Master Mei every day. How can I let you in? You can just wait and maybe Master will have time to see you two months later.”
The old man was helpless and felt awkward but he didn’t say anything. After all, this was Master Mei’s residence and he dare not show his discontent even if he was angry.
He turned around and left. The steward gave a scornful laugh and his eyes were filled with disdain.
Countless people were coming here to visit Master Mei every day. This old man said he had something urgent, but he was such an idiot and didn’t even give him some money. How could he let this old man meet his master?
A servant suddenly ran over and said, “Mr. Steward, Master Zha is dead! The Li family just sent his body back and said he died of an acute illness. What should we do now?”
“What? Master Zha is dead?”
The steward was stunned and immediately stood up. Mei Zhanlong had no children in his entire life and only had two disciples. The eldest one was Yi Chenzi and the other was Zha Liang, who had been called Master Zha.
Mei Zhanlong and Yi Chenzi rarely came out and it was usually Zha Liang who met and made friends with the rich in Hong Kong. No one dared to offend him for Mei Zhanlong’s sake. Besides, he was also strong and skilled himself. How could he have died of sudden illness?
Still, the servant confirmed the news. “He’s indeed dead and his body is now in the back hall. There aren’t any scars on his body and he did seem to have died of a sudden illness.”
The steward thought for a moment and then said, “This really matters and we can’t make any decisions. But Master Mei is practicing and we can’t bother him. Go and invite Yi Chenzi. Be quick.”
The servant said, “He has just come out to attend an auction. Brother Yi never brings his cell phones with him, so I think we can only meet him in the evening.”
The steward thought for a moment and said, “We can’t bother Master Mei now. Put the body in place and we’ll wait for Brother Yi to make a decision.”
Qin Haodong and Nalan Wushuang came to the auction house together. This auction house, which belonged to the Li family, was high-end and only those successful and rich could get in.
Moreover, only members could get the invitation letter and attend the auction.
They had decided to attend the auction several hours ago, so they hadn’t received the invitation letter and were not allowed to enter. Qin Haodong followed Li Meiyu’s instructions and called Tian Ye, who was in charge of the auction.
Tian Ye had already received Li Meiyu’s notice, so he said politely when he got Qin Haodong’s phone call, “Mr. Qin, please wait for a moment. I’ll pick you up now.”
He rushed to the door after hanging up, which astonished his secretary.
This was a high-end auction house and all the people Tian Ye met every day were super-rich in Hong Kong. She had never seen him behave like this before.
Of course, the secretary didn’t know what he was thinking. He had been in charge of the auction house for many years and Old Master Li had only asked him to receive a few guests in person. However, Mr. Qin had unlimited access to the funding of auction, which was unprecedented. He must be careful with this man.
Although he didn’t know Mr. Qin’s background, he was sure that this man was very important to the Li family. He must treat him seriously.
After calling Tian Ye, Qin Haodong and Nalan Wushuang were waiting at the door. Many people were attracted to this handsome guy and the beautiful girl standing beside him.
At that moment, a young man, who was wearing luxurious clothes, appeared. His clothes alone were worth at least one million yuan and he was also wearing a Patek Philippe limited edition gold watch. It was clear that he came from a rich family.
There was a beautiful girl walking with him arm in arm. Qin Haodong glanced at her and found her familiar. He remembered later that this woman was a movie star and he had once seen her in an advertisement.
"Young Master Bao, welcome…”
Many people stopped to greet this young man, but he looked arrogant and didn’t even notice them.
He was Bao Mingyu, the young master of the Bao family. He had enough money and power to be proud of. He was now in charge of the most famous entertainment company in Hong Kong and countless movie stars were under his control. The woman walking beside him was his new lover.
Given his wealth and power, he could get any women he wanted. And they were also proud of being his lovers.
Bao Mingyu showed his invitation card and was about to enter. But he noticed Nalan Wushuang who was standing next to him. He was immediately stunned by her beauty and didn’t even know what to say.
He had seen and slept with countless beautiful women for all these years. But Nalan Wushuang was the most beautiful and elegant one he had ever seen. She immediately became his goddess.
While gathering his wits together, Bao Mingyu shrugged the woman away and walked to Nalan Wushuang hurriedly. Then he asked with radiant eyes, "Hi, beautiful lady."
He didn’t even notice Qin Haodong, who was wearing ordinary clothes.
Nalan Wushuang looked at Bao Mingyu in surprise and asked, “What can I do for you, sir?”
“Let me introduce myself. I’m Bao Mingyu, President of Hong Kong Entertainment Company. This is my business card.”
Then he handed her a business cardthe content was spelled out in golden letters!
He believed that this woman would definitely treat him differently after receiving his business card. Nowadays, every woman wanted to become a movie star and the more beautiful she was, the stronger the desire would be.
Moreover, the Hong Kong Entertainment Company was well-known in Hong Kong and the entire Huaxia. He was confident that this woman would be attracted and may even fall in his arms voluntarily.
To his disappointment, Nalan Wushuang frowned and didn’t even change her expression after receiving the card. She took it politely and gave it only a perfunctory glance.
Besides, she just held it in hand casually and didn’t mean to put it away. It seemed that she would probably throw it away when he left.
“What’s going on?”
Things were a little different from what he had expected. Maybe she didn’t know what his identity represented.
He pretended to be a gentleman and asked with a smile, “Beautiful lady, could I have your name, please?”
Nalan Wushuang held on to Qin Haodong’s arm and gave him a polite smile. “I’m sorry, but my boyfriend doesn’t like me telling my name to strangers.”
Although she didn’t reject him directly, Bao Mingyu realized that she was certain and determined.
His face clouded because it was the first time he had been rejected by a woman. But his desire to conquer her was immediately aroused.
Thus, he continued. “Lady, I want to tell you something. You’re so beautiful and elegant and it’s a waste of your talent not to become a movie star.
“If you’re willing to join my company, I promise that I will make you a superstar within three months or half a year. You’ll become a famous movie star in Huaxia or even in the entire world.
“You’ll get the Oscar and walk the red carpet of Cannes. Flowers, applauses, and countless fans will all be yours…”
He talked nonstop, and the woman standing beside him jealously glanced at Nalan Wushuang. The reason why she had been working hard and had become Bao Mingyu’s lover was that she wanted to become a superstar.
Unfortunately, it was obvious that this playboy was falling in love with someone else, promising her everything.
Nalan Wushuang frowned slightly and interrupted Bao Mingyu, “Mr. Bao, I’m really sorry. But I’m not interested in being a movie star. I like my present life better.”
Bao Mingyu’s face suddenly turned red like a rooster whose neck had been strangled and he didn’t know what to say. All the other girls were excited and couldn’t wait to strip off his clothes and go to bed with him after hearing these words.
But this one was an exception as she was not attracted to the star dream he had described to her at all.
He was enraged and came up with another idea. She didn’t want to be a movie star, but she must want to be rich. There was no person in the world who could resist the temptation of money.
He took out a string of Rolls-Royce keys from his pocket and gave them to Nalan Wushuang. “I bought a new car a week ago and it’s worth five million yuan. As long as you tell me your name and then become my friend, this car will belong to you.”
Seeing all this, the woman standing beside him couldn’t even hide her jealousy. She even wanted to rush over and grab the key.
