Chapter 1189: Planning and Decision
“Why can’t you differentiate between right and wrong? If you do this, our Tian Family will have no worries in the future; but if you don’t do it, you may have trouble in the future!” Tian Long looked at Tian Donghua resentfully as he spoke.
“Dad, I don’t want to care about the matters you have with the Sun Family, and I don’t have the rights to care about it. However, I have already said that Yang Ming is my friend. I will never do anything that is not good for him.” Tian Donghua’s tone became stronger and stronger. “I don’t know about whatever behind-the-scenes mysterious boss, why he wants to control Yang Ming, and what grievance has with Yang Ming. However, don’t involve me. I won’t do it.”
Tian Long opened his mouth, but finally, he did not say anything. He understood that Tian Donghua’s character was very prejudiced and stubborn. Otherwise, he would not fight in school over a girl.
Therefore, Tian Long also understood that once Tian Donghua had decided, it could not be changed. He underestimated Tian Donghua’s friendship with Yang Ming.
Since this way did not work, then Tian Long could only find another way.
Tian Donghua seemed to notice Tian Long’s thoughts. Although there was some hesitation, he still added, “Dad, I advise you to dismiss the idea of making a move on Yang Ming. Otherwise, I will definitely inform him.”
“You…!” Tian Long was shocked by Tian Donghua’s words. He did not expect to cause such a big backlash in Tian Donghua.
“I can’t interfere with the things you do, but I will protect my friends.” Tian Donghua said, “Of course, if you don’t do anything to Yang Ming, I won’t speak of what you did.”
Tian Long had some regrets for telling Tian Donghua of his thoughts in advance. Now it was difficult to stop halfway. If he did not reveal this matter to Tian Donghua, he could secretly think of other ways to go about it. However, now that he let Tian Donghua know, then Tian Donghua would not allow him to do this. Moreover, Tian Donghua also claimed that he would go and notify Yang Ming, so Tian Long really had no way to go about it anymore.
It seemed that this matter could only be planned in the future. It was impossible to take action now. Thinking of this, Tian Long said, “Alright, let’s just forget about this matter. You just treat it as if I haven’t said anything.”
Tian Donghua then smiled and nodded. “Naturally. I am not very interested in those other matters anyway.”
Tian Long had bribed many high-level executives of the Sun Family’s business in Donghai with a large sum of money. Of course, this bribe came from the mysterious boss behind-the-scenes.
On the second day after Sun Hongjun, Sun San, and Sun Jie were placed under house arrest, the Sun Family’s legal representative of the Sun Group in Donghai changed from Sun Hongjun to Tian Long.
From this day on, the Sun Group officially became the Tian Family’s business. Of course, the name of the Sun Group would not be used anymore. It was only because renaming the company required a specific procedure and time and could not be completed in an instant. Even though Tian Long had a deep network of contacts in Donghai, he would still need to follow procedures for certain things.
Some of the small local gang leaders in the underground business were Tian Long’s own people, so there was no need to worry at all. At this moment, Donghai’s entire Sun Family business could be said to be in the hands of Tian Long.
In fact, once people like Tian Long, who have formed a bridge between the past and present, had ambitions, they could easily control the overall situation without the master realizing.
This was also why many of the upper-level people did not decentralize and concentrated power in their own hands. However, Sun Hongjun was too decentralized. He had no ability to intimidate these people. It was difficult to achieve success by relying on his own personality.
Aura of triumph, that was just nonsense in the novels. Even when the past emperor seized power, it was also with grace and majesty.
However, Yang Ming was different. Bao Sanli, Hou Zhenhan, and Li Qiang were afraid of Yang Ming not because of Yang Ming’s so-called “aura of triumph” but because of Yang Ming’s strange agility and terrifying acupoints techniques, as well as his superb assassination skills.
There was not much to say to such a person since his underling would hardly have the intent to rebel. If they did not rebel, then they would live a life of luxury; if they rebelled, death was their only answer. Who would do such a stupid thing?
Sitting in a spacious and bright office, Tian Long was in a great mood. He did not expect that the day would come where he could sit in this position. Compared to Donghai, the progress of the Sui Family at Mount Jing was a bit slow.
Here in Song Jiang, Sui Yuejin felt like he did not know where to start. After all, he was someone who followed in the footsteps of powerful people. It was unlike Tian Long who had already penetrated power deep into the bones of Donghai; he could win the whole situation with a little bribing.
Sui Yuejin was different. Although Liu Chan and Qu Daming were working together, the businesses of Bao Sanli (actually Yang Ming’s business) were too scattered.
Although Ming Yang Heavy Industry was a brother company to Ming Yang Entertainment, in fact, the two companies had no relationship. There was no such thing where one controlled the other. So, it was an impossible mission for Sui Yuejin wanting to infiltrate Ming Yang Heavy Industry.
It wasn’t only him, but Liu Chan and Qu Daming were also troubled. Not only was it impossible here, but even the business left by Wang Xifan’s Wang Group, which was solely run by Guo Jianchao, had no substantive connection with Ming Yang Entertainment.
Therefore, aside from the Nightless Club and several small-scale bars, there were no other businesses under the control of Ming Yang Entertainment. Although there was still Ming Yang Real Estate that was just established, Ming Yang Real Estate was just a start-up company, and it was invested by Sun Hongjun and President Hua. It was not easy to control.
However, Jidun City was easy to handle. Bao Sanli’s foundation was not quite firm at the place. Moreover, the focus had changed from the previous underground business to the current new and growing business, entertainment business, catering business, and gradually, the previous unspoken rules were abolished. It was developing positively, so it was more feasible to get involved in Jidun City.
Although Liu Chan and Qu Daming were bribed over, as long as Bao Sanli and Hou Zhenhan were still alive, there would be some resistance in the success of this matter. Their other businesses and forces could not be eliminated and annexed together, which would cause future trouble. Once Bao Sanli did a counterattack, Liu Chan and Qu Daming were not his opponents at all.
Even if Sui Yuejin had a profound foundation in Mount Jing, it was still difficult to compete with the local forces of Bao Sanli in this land that was not his own.
In the conference room, Liu Chan, Qu Daming, Sui Yuejin, and Tian Long sat together to discuss how to get rid of Bao Sanli and Hou Zhenhan.
“We have tried our best, but in our capacity, it is unlikely that we can get close to Bao Sanli and Hou Zhenhan. Moreover, the people around him have no possibility of being bribed.” Liu Chan sighed, threw up his hands, and spoke a little helplessly.
Qu Daming at the side also nodded and expressed that Liu Chan was right.
Tian Long also slightly nodded. Indeed, he was unlike Liu Chan and Qu Daming. He was in the Sun Family’s Donghai circle for many years and thus was able to buy people’s hearts smoothly. Most importantly, Tian Long’s status and identity were second only to Sun Hongjun! However, the identity of Liu Chan and Qu Daming was obviously a bit low. Although they seemed to be at the manager-level, they actually did not enter Bao Sanli’s core group.
In addition to knowing some of the Nightless Club’s operating accounts, they knew nothing else. Now, the only finances that they could funnel out were the Nightless Club, several bars, KTV, and at most its newly established real estate company.
In other respects, they simply couldn’t interfere, and they didn’t know where to start.
“It seems that this is indeed a very serious problem.” Sui Yuejin did not think that Liu Chan and Qu Daming did not work hard, but knew that their ability was limited, and they could not force anything at all. “How about this? I feel that it is imperative to eliminate Bao Sanli, Hou Zhenhan, and Guo Jianchao. Once these core figures have disappeared, then you will be able to take advantage of Song Jiang’s business.”
“Eliminate?” Liu Chan and Qu Daming were both surprised. They never thought about killing Bao Sanli, Hou Zhenhan, and others. It was very dangerous. Once something went wrong, there was no hope of reprieve! And the most important thing was that neither of them could do so! Thinking of this, Liu Chan said quickly, “Hou Zhenhan’s skill is one of the best in Song Jiang. How could we both have the ability to do it?”
“Of course, you don’t have to eliminate them yourself.” Sui Yuejin waved his hand, “Can’t we hire someone to do it? If there is a problem, then it would never implicate you.”
“Hire someone?” Liu Chan was stunned. He wasn’t originally born in the underworld. He didn’t know much about these things, so this time, he showed a puzzled expression.
“There are specialized assassins to be hired to assassinate Bao Sanli, Hou Zhenhan, and Guo Jianchao. When they die, we will be alright!” Sui Yuejin had resentment for Bao Sanli. The grievance of Jidun City must be avenged. “Let me handle this. I have been in contact with people who have been assassins in my early years. I still have a certain understanding of this line. As long as the money is in place, I can hire the world’s top assassins!”
“The problem that money can solve is not a problem!” Tian Long made a direct decision. “I have money!”
Not only did Tian Long now have the financial support of the behind-the-scenes boss, but also the Sun Family’s business income, which could be described as rich and powerful. The money was still nothing to him.
“Good.” Sui Yuejin did not deny it. After all, the money was not a small amount. If there was someone else paying for it, he did not have to fight for it.
