"I will go back to Earth with you. I have already said that I'm going to kill those people who injured you," the empress told Ren Baqian calmly.
Ren Baqian had a shock.
Previously, he told the empress he was attacked on Earth just to hide the fact that he forgot to bring an erhu back here. Furthermore, he also told the empress before that he would appear wherever he disappeared during his teleportation. The empress had already confirmed this fact after going to Earth several times with him.
Therefore, he would be instantly exposed if he brought the empress to Earth.
"Your Majesty, this time I'm going back to investigate who the mastermind is, it will be a boring process. I can't possibly make you follow me around. Why don't you follow me to Earth after I have found out who the mastermind is?" Ren Baqian smiled and replied casually.
"What if you encounter danger again? Given your skills, you can't even defeat a child," the empress looked at Ren Baqian and asked. Her voice contained a tinge of concern, giving Ren Baqian a stab in his heart.
"I will be more careful when I return to Earth this time around. Furthermore, I have to temper myself, a flower growing in a greenhouse will never be able to withstand wind and rain. The strength of Earthlings pales in comparison to the aboriginals'. If I can't even handle Earthlings, I'm truly an embarrassment," Ren Baqian explained, "Moreover, I still have a handgun with me. It's just that I didn't bring it with me the last time around. This time around, I won't forget to carry it with me."
The empress had doubts about guns. To her, a gun was like a toy. However, it was useful to a certain extent when used against ordinary people.
"Since you insist, we will do according to what you said. You have to be careful," the empress said with concern.
"Zixiao, I will be careful. After two and a half days, I will be able to return here whenever I want. I will be safe," Ren Baqian smiled and replied with a gentle tone. In Dayao, he seldom called the empress by her name. Calling her by her name at this point in time made him sound extremely affectionate.
After returning to Pingle Park, Ren Baqian heaved a sigh of relief. Fortunately, the empress did not insist on going to Earth with him. Otherwise, the outcome would be disastrous.
However, when Ren Baqian thought of how much the empress cared about him, he felt extremely guilty. An ashamed look appeared on his face.
He promised himself not to lie to her again in the future. It was better not to beg for her forgiveness with injuries again. A ceramic pot is likely to break when used to carry water from a well; a general is destined to die on the battlefield.
He used to be a cute and honest boy. Now, lying had almost become his instinct.
Sigh, such is life...
After heaving a sigh, Ren Baqian rummaged through his room for his handgun. Of course, he wasn't in any danger and there was no need for him to carry a handgun with him. It was a white lie that he had to tell the empress. Carrying a handgun on Earth would bring nothing but trouble to him.
After changing his clothes, he looked at the handgun lying on the bed. After a while, he picked it up and stuffed it into his pants.
The next moment, he disappeared into thin air.
"That lad is really hard to find, we will wait for a while more. If he doesn't appear soon, I will"
Ren Baqian heard a voice the moment he returned to Earth.
Looking in the direction of the source of the voice, Ren Baqian saw a tall and skinny man that wore a pair of spectacles sitting on the sofa. There were two other men standing beside him. Both of them looked formidable.
At this moment, the three persons were staring at him. Apparently, Ren Baqian's sudden appearance had stunned them.
Ren Baqian was stunned as well. He quickly scanned his surroundings.
This is indeed my house. That's right, but who are these three men?
F*ck. Am I really that unlucky? Trouble!
"Kekeke I really didn't expect this I really didn't expect this I'm really shocked!" After the man sitting on the sofa calmed down, he began to clap his hands and laugh. Then, he let out a series of sighs. His face was filled with astonishment and joy.
"Can we have a chat?" The man extended his hand out for a handshake. Even though his tone was an enquiring one, he did not seem to have the intention to talk to Ren Baqian.
Ren Baqian's head was filled with question marks. He also wanted to know who these people were and what they were doing here.
However, there was one thing he knew for sure, that was, he was in deep trouble.
Ren Baqian composed himself and replaced the shocked look on his face with a calm one.
"How may I address you?" Ren Baqian did not move. The two men that were standing walked towards him and tried to put an armlock on him.
Ren Baqian's body instantly moved. He shifted his elbow upwards and kicked one of the men in his face with his right foot. Then, he used his left foot to give that man a low blow. That man dropped to the ground while grabbing his crotch and whimpering in pain.
Upon seeing this, the other man tried to kick Ren Baqian. Ren Baqian dodged his kick and executed [Unparalleled Vanguard]. Energy surged through his body as he thrusted his hands forward and punched the man heavily in his chest.
That man flew backward in the air and landed on the coffee table behind it, smashing it into smithereens.
Ren Baqian's skill level had improved recently. Furthermore, his strength had increased as well. Now, he had the strength of a man that weighed 110 kilograms. His speed was also slightly faster than an ordinary man's. Therefore, he could easily take down these two men.
"Not bad!" The spectacled, middle-aged man wasn't shocked by the turn of events. Instead, he clapped his hands and praised Ren Baqian. Then, he added, "But you better behave properly now."
"I don't like other people touching me, now we can have a good chat." Ren Baqian leaned against the wall and said, "Who are you?"
"It isn't important who I am, but I don't mind telling you. My name is Jin Jun. 'Jin' for gold, 'Jun' for gentleman," Jin Jun stated without any fear.
["Jin" stands for "gold" in Chinese, "Jun" stands for "gentleman".]
"What are you here for?"
"Initially, I'm here for some other matters." Jin Jun picked up a stack of papers lying in the coffee table fragments.
"I'm very interested in your shares in this laboratory. I don't know what you did to make Chen Yan direct the funds from his other businesses into this laboratory without any hesitation. I really can't believe you're the biggest shareholder." Jin Jun placed the stack of papers beside him.
"What do you know?" Ren Baqian furrowed his eyebrows. That stack of papers looked like the contract he signed with Papa Chen. He recalled that he placed it in his bedroom. It seemed like these people had found it.
However, he wasn't surprised that his identity as the biggest shareholder of the laboratory was revealed. The information on the shareholders of the laboratory could be easily obtained from the Industrial and Commercial Bank. Ordinary people might have trouble getting hold of this information, but influential and powerful individuals should have no problem obtaining it.
Ren Baqian certainly did not expect himself to be targeted even before any results were produced by the laboratory.
Is this man crazy? If you really dare to do anything, why don't you target Jack Ma?
From the look of it, it was obvious that this man was an unbridled and fearless man. Certainly, he was treating Ren Baqian as a pushover. He'd only ever seen this kind of situation on the news and he didn't expect himself to encounter it.
Of course, he himself did seem like a pushover.
One year ago, he was still an ordinary individual. Due to luck, he began a collaboration with Papa Chen and became the biggest the shareholder. By directing the funds from his other businesses to the laboratory, Papa Chen definitely attracted a lot of attention.
To these people, Ren Baqian seemed like an ordinary individual with no influential power. All he had was a contract. This made him an easy target. As long as they could take him down, they would be able to obtain a slice of the pie without paying a hefty price. Subsequently, they just needed to deal with Papa Chen.
If these people had a feud with Papa Chen, they could just disturb the businesses that he had invested a huge amount of funds and energy in and make him suffer a huge loss.
Business etiquette exists in this world. What these people were doing was clearly despicable.
Suddenly, Ren Baqian thought of something. Previously, he was stabbed in the bar. Subsequently, he heard that the person who stabbed him had a dispute with Papa Chen and his actual target was Chen Qing.
Was Jin Jun the mastermind behind that incident? Or was it the people that are backing Jin Jun?
"I have very little understanding of the collaboration between you and Chen Yan, perhaps you can tell me more about it? And how did you appear out of nowhere? I'm really curious."
