Chapter 1265: Establishing Majesty
“My name is Yang Ming. I don’t know if you have heard of me?” Yang Ming’s voice was soft, but he spoke with an unquestionable majesty. He stood there, looking at the Sun Family’s company’s top management in the room who were bought over by Tian Long.
“Yang Ming!?” Most of the people present had never heard of the name Yang Ming, but there were also a few people like Li Baihu who were very close to Tian Long who knew the existence of Yang Ming.
Li Baihu’s brow suddenly furrowed, and his eyes swept to Wang Renping. “Brother Wang, what do you mean by this? Don’t you know Brother Long is now dealing with Yang Ming?”
After Yang Ming reminded him, Li Baihu remembered it immediately. Tian Long showed him Yang Ming photos, but he did not have a deep impression at the time. However, with Yang Ming’s words, the silhouettes of the two people coincided!
This person was Yang Ming whom Tian Long wanted to kill. Why was he with Wang Renping? Li Baihu was not stupid. He became anxious immediately as he glared at Wang Renping.
“It doesn’t mean anything.” Yang Ming interrupted Li Baihu’s words. “I have already said that if you don’t want to die, just shut up! I think I have been very brief and concise. Can’t you understand it? I don’t want to say it anymore; I will not repeat it a third time, but I will answer it with action.”
“Motherf*cker! Who the f*ck are you? Do you dare to talk to me like this? Wang Renping, you little brat, after I deal with this kid, I will settle the score with you!” Li Baihu said as he took a gun from his waist. However, before he could point it at Yang Ming and voice his dissatisfaction, he fainted on the ground.
This sudden change startled everyone in the room. When they heard Li Baihu, everyone immediately understood that this Wang Renping might have been colluding with Yang Ming! Looking at Li Baihu, drawing his gun to get rid of Yang Ming, all of them became very excited. They were secretly glad that Wang Renping did not confiscate their weapons.
However, just as they were fantasizing about Li Baihu killing Yang Ming and getting rid of the traitor – Wang Renping, a sudden change of events happened again! Li Baihu fell down without any warning!
He fell down straight to the floor!
“I have already warned you, but you pushed your boundaries again and again. There is no longer a third chance. You can’t blame the others.” Yang Ming said in an understatement as if the previous scene was not what he did.
The audience was shocked! They all burst into an uproar! Even Wang Renping found it incredible; he was watching the reality happening in front of him with horror! Li Baihu was killed just like this?
The incident happened in a split second. They couldn’t even see how Yang Ming made a move. Those who had a keen eye could only notice Yang Ming’s hand raised slightly, and Li Baihu snorted and fell to the floor.
They did not know what Yang Ming did after he raised his hand and how Li Baihu fell to the floor.
Yang Ming’s sudden move shocked everyone all of a sudden. He could kill someone by merely raising his hand! What kind of terrifying strength is this?
“Don’t be stupefied. He didn’t die.” Yang Ming was very satisfied with the scene. It was like punishing an individual as an example to others. If Yang Ming didn’t intimidate these people, then they would not be afraid of him and cooperate with him.
“He didn’t die?” Everyone was relieved as the situation eased with no fatalities.
“However, he can’t wake up anymore. It’s no different from being dead; he has become a fool.” Yang Ming said faintly, “It’s the first time, so consider it as a lesson. For what I’m going to speak about later if someone else doubts it, I won’t be merciful.”
After Yang Ming finished, he glanced at everyone. Seeing that everyone was in fear and trepidation, he was quite satisfied. “Well, since everyone has no doubts, then I will continue.”
Li Baihu lay on the ground straight, but the people present did not care about his safety. Now, these people felt that they couldn’t even protect themselves; why would they care about other people?
In fact, Yang Ming also grasped the psychology of these people. Previously, Wang Renping called these people urgently. After they arrived, he just let them wait in the room without telling them what was going on.
Only when all the people were here did Yang Ming appear which gave them a surprise, so that they did not have any chance to collude! So in this way, Yang Ming would only need to deal with one of them and set an example with the punishment of one person. That way, he would be able to intimidate others and proclaim his dominance!
These people would be deterred by danger, so they would not cooperate together to resist. If these people simultaneously took out their weapons and resisted, Yang Ming was really not sure whether he could stop all of them! After all, Yang Ming was not a god nor an Avalokiteshvara . He could not defeat or kill these people at the same time.
Although Yang Ming could be confident that he would not be hurt by these people, there was no guarantee that this plan would not be ruined!
However, Yang Ming grasped the psychology of everyone and that they would be deterred by the danger. In this case, who would stick up without a unified premeditated plan? Whoever stuck up would suffer the same result as Li Baihu who was on the floor!
People were selfish. Who would be selfless to resist for everyone at this time? They would rather harm others to protect their own benefits. These people all lowered their heads without making any protest.
“Wang Renping, give the pills in this box to them one by one.” Yang Ming handed the small box in his pocket to Wang Renping and commanded.
Wang Renping nodded and took the small box that Yang Ming handed over. He came in front of President Zhang and said, “President Zhang, open your mouth.”
President Zhang’s cold sweat immediately fell. He didn’t know what Wang Renping wanted to give him, but obviously, it was not a good thing. Therefore, President Zhang immediately became timid. “What is this…?”
“I have eaten it, too; it won’t kill you.” Wang Renping snorted, ignored him, and pinched his cheek. It was just like how Yang Ming pinched Wang Renping. He took the pill out and tossed it in.
When he saw President Zhang swallow it in his throat, Wang Renping let go his hand with satisfaction.
President Zhan covered his throat, and he was overwhelmed, but since he had already eaten it, he also had to accept his fate. He was initially a timid and greedy person. He agreed to help Tian Long embezzle the Sun Family’s company for the great profit and under Tian Long’s coercion. Hence, when he was intimidated, he was done for.
He didn’t want to resist at the moment; he just waited for a moment to see what Yang Ming would command him to do.
“It’s your turn. Open your mouth!” Wang Renping came to the person next to President Zhang. He followed the same pattern and gripped the person’s cheek as he yelled.
This person was also a coward. He didn’t dare to protest as he swallowed the pill given by Wang Renping. The abnormal progress of the matter had made Yang Ming somewhat surprised.
With two good precedents at the beginning, it became much smoother with the people behind. They all opened their mouths obediently. Afterward, one person seemed to be reluctant, but when he saw Li Baihu who was lying flat on the floor, he clenched his teeth and closed his eyes. He obediently took the pill that Wang Renping gave him.
However, if there were obedient people, naturally, there were people who were dissatisfied with it, just like Ma Qiang! That was the person who was mentioned by Wang Renping in the phone call previously – Uncle Ma!
Ma Qiang was not a person who would sit idle just to be bullied. He was one of the thugs who followed Tian Long to mingle in the underworld. Even his presence in the Donghai underworld was earlier than those of Tian Long!
He was a veteran thug. Although the life he harvested wasn’t in the size of a mountain, he was also a guy who dared to murder. He had never been afraid of anyone! Moreover, Ma Qiang, like Wang Renping and Li Baihu, was Tian Long’s confidant, but he followed Tian Long much earlier than Wang Renping and Li Baihu, so he was also the most loyal one.
Now that Li Baihu’s life and death were unknown, and Wang Renping had betrayed Tian Long and colluded with Yang Ming, in this scene, Ma Qing was clear with the others’ attitude. These people were mostly timid like a mouse who set the helm according to the wind. Otherwise, Tian Long wouldn’t be able to win easily and buy them over.
Therefore, it was almost impossible to unite these people to resist Yang Ming and Wang Renping. Who among these people would like to stick up? So in desperation, Ma Qiang could only bear the dissatisfaction and wait for the right time. He also knew that the pills that Wang Renping gave them were definitely not good things. It was probably a chronic poison. If he ate those into his stomach, it would be impossible if he wanted to resist them!
If they wanted to live in the future, they would still need to follow Yang Ming’s arrangement. So, when Ma Qiang noticed it was almost his turn, he was nervous!
He couldn’t let Yang Ming and Wang Renping succeed! He must resist! Thinking of this, Ma Qiang’s hand slowly touched his own waist! He wanted to eliminate Yang Ming using his gun, and then eliminate Wang Renping!
Previously, Li Baihu failed, but Ma Qiang did not think that he would fail! Because Li Baihu spoke a lot of nonsense to Yang Ming before he drew his gun which raised Yang Ming’s vigilance, he failed! As long as he drew his gun silently while Yang Ming was not ready, he could eliminate Yang Ming in one shot!
Although Yang Ming didn’t stare in Ma Qiang’s direction and stood there as if he didn’t care, Yang Ming used his special ability – 360-degree vision – to observe these people’s movements without even opening his eyes.
But, how could Ma Qiang know? He saw that Yang Ming didn’t look at him, and thought it was a great opportunity! He suppressed his inner excitement while holding his breath as he drew the gun from his waist. He was about to ambush Yang Ming. Unfortunately, before he could raise the hand that was holding the pistol, he became paralyzed on the floor, holding the pistol in his hand…
Although many people did not notice Ma Qiang’s premeditation, as soon as they saw his hand on the ground with a gun, they quickly understood what was going on!
It must be that Ma Qiang took advantage of Yang Ming not paying attention to shoot Yang Ming with a gun, but he was noticed by Yang Ming. In the end, Ma Qiang was dealt with without the crowd knowing how it happened.
“I will say it again. As long as you take the pills obediently, I can make sure that you are safe. Otherwise, he will be your example.” Yang Ming didn’t even gaze at Ma Qiang, but he looked down indifferently and spoke coldly to the people present.
With Li Baihu setting an example, plus Ma Qiang, the latecomer, these people dared not have any disagreement! Those who were restless in their mind had given up the idea to resist at the moment with Ma Qiang’s example.
Resistance meant death. They might survive if they didn’t resist. Although they didn’t know what the pill was, those who had consumed it seemed to be fine for the time being. It shouldn’t be something that could immediately poison people to death.
It seemed that Yang Ming wanted them to do something. If they did it, they would continue to live, so these people also felt secure in their hearts. Since things had already reached this point, then they would just do what Yang Ming said!
Previously, President Zhang and the group who had already taken the pills found themselves fortunate. Luckily, their group consumed the pills that Wang Renping gave them. Otherwise, the person lying on the floor would be them!
After Ma Qiang fell to the ground, the rest of them even took the initiative to open their mouths when Wang Renping came in front and swallowed the pill obediently in their mouths. However, it was not strange. Who would want to be the second Ma Qiang or the second Li Baihu?
Soon, the pills were finished. There were still some left in the box. Wang Renping returned the box to Yang Ming, and Yang Ming put it into his pocket.
“It seems that you are very obedient!” Yang Ming was satisfied as he glanced at everyone in the room with the 360-degree vision. “I like to cooperate with people who are obedient!”
The people present, including Wang Renping, smiled bitterly in their hearts. Can we really not listen? You defeated two people by simply raising your hand. If we don’t obey, wouldn’t the next one be us?
As for cooperation… How is this cooperation? It is clearly one-sided blackmail; it is not cooperation at all…
However, these could only be thought of. Who would dare to anger Yang Ming and say these things?
Therefore, these people had to show their gratitude in fear and trepidation. “Mr. Yang, tell us anything you need. As long as we can do it, we will try our best!
At this time, the hearts of these people were in unison. They almost unanimously said this.
“Actually, you all should understand in your hearts even though I don’t speak it. Li Baihu has already said that Tian Long considered me as an enemy. It goes the same for me that he is also my enemy!” said Yang Ming.
Everyone nodded. Even if Yang Ming didn’t say it, they all guessed it.
“I’m not asking you to do anything. You just have to take away Tian Long’s power. I’m going to find Tian Long trouble. You just have to sit idle and watch the fun at the side.” Yang Ming looked at the crowd.
“What?” The people present watched Yang Ming incredulously. Is it so simple? They were still a little afraid of going against Tian Long, but they still had to do it under pressure. However, Yang Ming let them sit idle and watch the fun on the side! This was such a great thing. They all found it a little unbelievable!
Wasn’t this equal to not helping on both sides?
“If I have to deal with someone, I don’t need someone else to help, but you all just need to stop adding trouble by the side!” said Yang Ming faintly.
Everyone pondered. This was indeed the case. Yang Ming could defeat Ma Qiang and Li Baihu just by simply raising his hand. If he had to deal with Tian Long, would he really need someone to help? Yang Ming’s purpose in controlling them was nothing more than preventing extra trouble from them.
With this in mind, everyone had settled down. Whether Tian Long was dead or not, it had nothing to do with them as long as it did not affect them.
“Where is the place where the Sun Family is put under house arrest?” asked Yang Ming.
Zhang Jinguo listened to Yang Ming’s question and quickly stood up. “Mr. Yang, the Sun Family people are being held in the junkyard. I am the person-in-charge!”
“Great, then you should take care of them. If someone is hurt even a little, then don’t dream about being alive.” Yang Ming looked at Zhang Jinguo.
“Do not worry, Mr. Yang. The Sun Family are all doing well!” Zhang Jinguo said quickly.
Yang Ming nodded and then looked at the people present. “I gave you a voodoo. If you don’t understand what it means, you can also understand it as a chronic poison. Have you heard about the Three Carrion Beetles Mind Control Pill  in Jin Yong’s novel, “The Smiling, Proud Wanderer?” The effect is similar to that. Every twenty-four to thirty-hours, you must take the antidote once. Otherwise… Just imagine the result yourself.”
Everyone could guess that Yang Ming had given them a poison. After they cooperated with Yang Ming, Yang Ming would provide them with the antidote, but they didn’t expect the poison would activate every twenty-four hours! Wasn’t the frequency too fast?
However, even if everyone’s face turned bitter, no one dared to raise any doubts. Dying tomorrow was better than dying now, not to mention they should not die tomorrow! If Yang Ming wanted to let these people die, he would not give them any chronic poison. Wasn’t it more convenient to kill them directly?
Therefore, even if this voodoo was so scary, everyone also calmed down and listened quietly to Yang Ming.
“Wang Renping, for each of them, you will distribute one suppressant pill that they need to take tomorrow!” As Yang Ming said, he took out another small box from his pocket. It had the suppressant pills that were made by Zhang Zhishen.
“Yes!” Wang Renping took the small box and began to distribute it to everyone. Those who got the pill were very careful as they stored it close to them. This was a life-saving thing. They couldn’t afford to lose it!
“If things go well, I will give you the antidote. Don’t worry about this. After all, the operation of the entire group still needs you!” Yang Ming offered these people a great reward that could not be realized. Who doesn’t know how to bullsh*t?
After listening to Yang Ming’s words, these people suddenly smiled. Although they did not know whether Yang Ming would honor what he said, having this promise was always better than nothing.
The voodoo suppressant was distributed. Wang Renping kept one for himself, and he returned the rest to Yang Ming. Yang Ming was observing Wang Renping’s movements with his special ability through his side gaze. He wanted to see if Wang Renping would keep a few voodoo suppressants for himself, but Wang Renping was honest. He only took one!
This made Yang Ming very satisfied. In fact, Wang Renping also understood that this pill could only suppress, but it couldn’t completely cure, so what was the significance of keeping a few more?
