Fending Off the Zhao Family
With a flash, Chen Xiangtian appeared in front of Zhou Mingrui.
“Are you alright” he asked.
Ive just used up too much energy and Im a little tired,” Zhou Mingrui answered.
After briefly checking on Zhou Mingrui and confirming that he was fine, Chen Xiangtian immediately turned to look at Zhao Guian, who was lying on the ground at the side.
At the same time, the Zhao familys subordinates who had rushed in from outside also stood around, but no one dared to come forward.
The first reason was because of Chen Xiangtians presence.
Two of them had already been taught a lesson by him.
With their strength, the rest of them would probably be nothing more than a piece of cake for him.
As for Zhou Mingrui, they witnessed with their own eyes how he had beaten their fifth master to the point of losing consciousness.
It was useless no matter how many of them went up.
Therefore, they chose to watch from the side.
“Hes still alive,” Chen Xiangtian said.
These words were not meant for Zhou Mingrui and Yan Wuyue, but for the Zhao family.
The members of the Zhao family heaved a sigh of relief when they heard the news.
If fifth master really died here, they would have no choice but to pick a fight with Chen Xiangtian and Zhou Mingrui, even if they didnt want to.
Otherwise, they would be killed sooner or later if they brought his body back without a proper explanation.
They might even be punished and live a life worse than death because of this.
However, there was no problem now.
In fact, having witnessed what happened here, they might even be able to enjoy a better life if they went back.
In order to protect his reputation, the fifth master would definitely not treat them badly.
As for whether he would kill all of them to keep this incident a secret Please, what era was this
“Ill return Zhao Guian to the main Zhao family.
You dont have any problems with that, right” Chen Xiangtian looked at Zhou Mingrui and asked.
With his position, there was technically no need for him to ask Zhou Mingrui for permission for such matters.
However, he still had to be polite.
Zhou Mingrui and Yan Wuyue looked at each other and said, “Sure.”
It didnt matter if they killed Zhao Guian or not, as they had already offended the Zhao family.
It was just a matter of how soon their revenge would come.
After Chen Xiangtian handed Zhao Guian over to the Zhao family, they quickly grouped up and left the manor, leaving the horrible mess theyve made behind.
Zhao Anqi quickly brought Zhao Desheng out.
He wasnt injured since he was simply grounded throughout the ordeal.
“I really have to thank you all this time.” Zhao Desheng thanked them.
Thank you so much for your help this time.
I, Zhao Desheng, am extremely grateful.”
Zhao Desheng still thought that it was Chen Xiangtian who defeated Zhao Guian.
Otherwise, how could two youngsters like Yan Wuyue and Zhao Anqi manage to turn the situation around
Chen Xiangtian laughed and shook his head.
Then he pointed at Yan Wuyue and Zhou Mingrui and said, “I didnt do anything.
I just said a few words.
To be exact, you should thank Yan Wuyue and her summoned spirit.”
Zhao Desheng was stunned.
He could not believe it.
“Dont underestimate her.
You can ask your daughter since shes the one who managed to get Yan Wuyue to help,” Chen Xiangtian explained.
“Thank you so much.
If you need anything, just let me know.
As long as I, Zhao Desheng, can give it to you, I will not hesitate.”
Zhao Desheng indeed had the charisma of someone who had built a successful business from scratch.
He turned around and thanked the two without the slightest hint of embarrassment.
After the servants had cleaned up the hall and moved in some new furniture, it was soon functional enough for them to sit down and discuss business.
“Even though Zhou Mingrui managed to force Zhao Guian to retreat this time, the main Zhao family will definitely make their move again,” Chen Xiang Tian said after drinking a cup of water.
“Thats for sure, but dont worry.
I, Zhao Desheng, was able to develop my business to such a scale.
Naturally, my assets are coveted by many.
Of course I would have ways to deal with these people.”
Zhao Desheng said confidently, “I just didnt expect Zhao Guian to come so quickly and even used physical coercion right off the bat.
My old friend happened to be out on business, so I was caught off guard.”
“I knew it, with brother Zhaos abilities, you wouldnt be so easily forced into this situation by Zhao Guian.” Chen Xiangtian nodded.
Although Zhao Deshengs company was not one of the top companies in the entire Hanxia country, it was still one of the leading companies in Huadong province.
Naturally, it was impossible for him to not have a few people to help him.
Zhao Desheng snorted.
“Ill have my own arrangements next.
Although I cant wrestle head-on with the entire main Zhao family, its enough to protect the business.”
Then, he looked at Yan Wuyue and Zhou Mingrui apologetically and said, “Its just that I have too many businesses and I am really tight on manpower, so I cant take care of you both too much.”
“But if you encounter any danger, contact me immediately.
Ill send the strong men on my side to help you as soon as possible.”
Chen Xiangtian also frowned when he heard this, but they all knew that Zhao Desheng had a point.
Judging from the current situation, the Zhao family probably wouldnt use underhanded means against Zhao Desheng anytime soon.
They would definitely use open and public means to launch an attack on his corporation, igniting a new round of war.
At that time, they would definitely be tight on manpower, because no one knew if the Zhao family would use some special means in secret.
Dont worry, uncle Zhao.
We can take care of our own safety.”
Yan Wuyue, however, was very calm.
“We are now the elite students of the Heavenly Saint Academy.
The Academy will not let us be harmed by forces from the outside world.
The Zhao family cant directly bypass the Heavenly Saint Academy to attack us.”
Then, she turned to Chen Xiangtian and said, “Besides, we have a new backer now.
As long as were careful, the Zhao family cant touch us no matter how powerful they are.”
Zhao Desheng looked at Yan Wuyue with admiration.
Although he could only guess that Chen Xiangtians identity was not simple, he still laughed and said, “Then Im relieved.
Otherwise, Im really afraid that I wont be able to sleep because of the guilt.”
After exchanging a few pleasantries, Yan Wuyue said in a timely manner, “Then, uncle Zhao, you should still have a lot of things to do.
We wont disturb you any longer.
Ill visit you again when its convenient.”
Zhao Desheng was even more surprised.
This Yan Wuyue was only fifteen or sixteen years old, but her style of doing things seemed to be as mature as people of his age.
“I wanted to keep you guys for dinner tonight, but I have too many things to do now.
In that case, lets meet again some other day.
Accept these gifts, or Ill be so guilty that I cant sleep.”
After Yan Wuyue and Zhou Mingrui left, Zhao Deshengs face darkened.
“Dad, what are you going to do”
Zhao Anqi asked.
Looking at his daughter who had matured a lot, Zhao Deshengs expression slightly softened.
He said in a low voice, “You should stay in the Academy.
It might be very dangerous at home, so youll be safer there.
Besides, I have a lot of things to do, so I might not be able to take care of you.”
