Chapter 1269: Being Utterly Isolated (A)
Yang Ming nodded. “This is good. As long as Tian Long is not suspicious, we will finish him off today.”
Yang Ming had some impressions of this Shen Miaotu. When Wang Renping gave him medicine last night, Wang Renping called his name. Yang Ming also deliberately observed these people yesterday, so his impression of Shen Miaotu was clearer.
This was a middle-aged person who wasn’t very old. In fact, he wasn’t really a middle-aged person. It seemed that he should only be in his early thirties which was one or two years older than Wang Renping.
Yesterday, when it was time to consume the voodoo, Shen Miaotu was obviously obedient. When he looked at Wang Renping, and after Wang Renping nodded to him, he just swallowed the voodoo without saying anything.
Although it couldn’t be said that this Shen Miaotu was obedient to Wang Renping because there were previous examples of Li Baihu and Ma Qiang as a deterrent effect, it could also indirectly show that this Shen Miaotu was actually a more obedient person.
“Tian Long usually arrives at the entrance of the hall at around 7:30 a.m. every day. Now it is 6:30 a.m., so we still have one hour. We can eat some breakfast first and be ready for it,” said Wang Renping.
“Good.” Yang Ming responded, then he immediately started the car. “Call Zhang Jinguo and ask him about the situation of the Sun Family and Tian Donghua.”
“Okay.” Wang Renping nodded, then he took out the phone and dialed Zhang Jinguo’s phone number.
The phone was connected soon, and there was Zhang Jinguo’s voice. “Brother Wang, hello! Is there anything you want me to do?”
In the past, Wang Renping was a popular man around Tian Long. Now, Zhang Jinping naturally regarded Wang Renping as a popular man next to Yang Ming, so his attitude was as respectful as ever.
“Jinguo, what happened with Tian Donghua and the Sun Family? Are they alright?” asked Wang Renping.
“No, Brother Long came here yesterday, visited the Sun Family, and he had a few arguments with them, then he went to see Great Young Master Tian. It seems that he was also quarreling with the Great Young Master Tian. Brother Long was trying to persuade him, but Great Young Master had a different opinion than him, so they parted on bad terms. They ate something and went back to their respective rooms to sleep.” Zhang Jinguo replied truthfully.
“Oh?” Wang Renping frowned after listening to Zhang Jinguo’s words. “What are you saying? You said that Tian Long went to you yesterday? And he stayed there for the night?”
“Yeah… what happened, Brother Wang?” Zhang Jinguo was a bit puzzled why Wang Renping’s reaction was so big.
“Nothing… if I knew it beforehand…” Wang Renping sighed and didn’t continue.
“Ah… didn’t Brother Yang let us not to get involved with Brother Long’s matter? We should just look by the side…” Zhang Jinguo quickly explained. “So I thought about it, and I didn’t call you…”
“It’s alright; it’s not your fault.” Wang Renping said, “Is Tian Long gone?”
“En, he just left.” Only when Zhang Jinguo saw that Wang Renping wasn’t angry, did he then sigh in relief.
“Okay, I got it.” Wang Renping hung up after the call.
Yang Ming had already learned about the cause of the matter from Wang Renping’s stuttering. It must be that Tian Long went to the villa by Zhang Jinguo, so he wasn’t at home yesterday.
“Brother Yang, Tian Long went to Zhang Jinguo yesterday; our plan has failed.” Wang Renping said with some regrets, “If we knew in advance last night, we could catch the turtle in the jar. We could have made a move when Tian Long was asleep at night; it is easier than daytime action…”
“Hehe, I roughly understand the situation; it doesn’t matter. Since it is like this already, complaints and regrets are useless. We just have to execute the plan well today.” Yang Ming waved his hand and smiled. “According to what you said, Shen Miaotu is our ally; he will restrain his men, so today’s plan is still relatively easy.”
“I hope so!” Wang Renping nodded. In fact, Wang Renping didn’t agree with the method that Tian Long used to suddenly embezzle the Sun Family’s property with the Sun Family’s men. He was originally the Sun Family’s subordinate. The Sun Family treated him well, and he should be loyal to them. How could he do such a thing?
This was why he didn’t have a psychological burden to betray Tian Long with Yang Ming. Many of them were indifferent to Tian Long. Many people despised Tian Long’s unjust means. They were just coerced by Tian Long’s powerful force, and they were greedy for money, so they had to submit to Tian Long under the temptation of money.
In the eyes of most people, it didn’t matter who the company’s top management was, whether it was Sun Hongjun or Tian Long. As long as they still got their pay, or if they got even more than before, why wouldn’t these people be glad to do it? No one would make life difficult for money.
However, the good news was that the people under Tian Long’s management had a strong sense of brotherhood. As the saying goes, the county officials aren’t as good as the current manager. The prefects are not as good as the county officials, so they could only obey Tian Long since Tian Long settled their leader.
“Let’s look for a porridge store and have some breakfast.” When Yang Ming knew that the Sun Family’s people were fine, he felt relieved. Yang Ming was most worried about the Sun Family’s safety.
When Tian Long went there last night, he only had a few arguments with the Sun Family and didn’t touch them. That is to say, Tian Long still had a conscience. At least, in the near future, he didn’t intend to kill the Sun Family.
However, life is unpredictable. Who knows that after Tian Long stood firm, would he eliminate the Sun Family?
They simply found a porridge store just by the roadside. Yang Ming parked the car directly and got out with Wang Renping. Donghai’s porridge stores were different from Song Jiang’s. Even if the two cities were close, and they had the same flavored snacks, there would also be a slight difference.
At least, Donghai’s porridge stores had a lot of snacks that Song Jiang didn’t have, and some of Song Jiang’s popular snacks couldn’t be seen here. Yang Ming wasn’t a picky person. It was fine as long as he was full. Wang Renping was even more so. The two merely ordered two bowls of lean meat porridge and some small pickles, then they started to eat.
“Yang Ming?” Someone said with surprise. Yang Ming raised his head, looked toward the source of the voice, and unexpectedly saw an acquaintance.
“Sister Yang Xin?” The people were Sun Jie’s high school classmate, Yang Xin, and her boyfriend, Wu Yunsheng. Yang Ming did not expect to meet them at the porridge store.
(For Yang Xin and Wu Yunsheng, see “Chapter 650: Sister and Brother-in-law” for details.)
“Yang Ming, it’s great to see you! Do you know where Little Jie is?” Yang Xin sent Wu Yunsheng to buy food, and then she sat in the empty space next to Yang Ming.
Yang Ming and Wang Renping were sitting at a four-person table, so there were two empty seats next to them.
“Ugh…” Yang Ming didn’t know how to answer Yang Xin’s sudden question. Although he and Yang Xin were quite familiar, he still could not disclose that Sun Jie was under house arrest. So, he smiled bitterly. “I also don’t know. I just drove to Donghai, but I haven’t looked for her yet!”
“Little Jie called me previously saying that she was coming back to Donghai and that she will find me after she came back. It has been a few days, but she hasn’t contacted me yet. I have called her mobile phone and home. Either it is shut down, or no one picks up. I don’t know if anything happened to her?” Yang Xin was a little anxious as she said this. “Yang Ming, have you contacted Little Jie in the past few days?”
Yang Ming breathed a sigh of relief after listening to Yang Xin! Yang Xin and Wu Yunsheng were also Donghai locals. They often mingled in some high-end parties. Donghai’s largest private group, Sun’s Company, had replaced the owner. They must have heard of it. Then, there was only one possibility that the news hadn’t spread out!
In other words, Tian Long still had a lot of licenses that had not been transferred to his own name, so he couldn’t announce it to the outside world for the time being!
In this way, it was also easy for Yang Ming to act. If Tian Long had already established the facts, then it was inappropriate for Yang Ming to deal with him. Otherwise, the chairman of the Sun’s Group who just came to power suddenly disappeared. This would be a big scoop.
Now it seemed that there was no guidance of public opinion at all. Tian Long’s matter wasn’t announced to the public. That meant if Yang Ming took advantage of this time to finish Tian Long off and quickly set Sun Hongjun back to power, then he could eliminate the bad influences on the Sun’s Group.
“It seems that something happened in her family.” Yang Ming couldn’t show his emotions too much in front of Yang Xin. He smiled indifferently. “It’s not that serious. Maybe she just can’t switch on the phone. I will see her tomorrow. How about this? After I see her, I will ask Sister Yang Xin and brother-in-law to come out to eat.”
“That’s great!” Yang Xin nodded happily. “It’s great that Little Jie is fine, so I don’t have to be so worried about her!”
“En, then we will contact you tomorrow.” Yang Ming sighed in his heart. I hope things go well, but this Sun Jie’s friend is not bad. She is still very concerned about Sun Jie.
Wu Yunsheng was as low-key as ever. After eating, Yang Ming bid farewell to Yang Xin and Wu Yunsheng at the car. Wang Renping said, “Wu Yunsheng, Mr. Wu, I have seen him.”
“Oh?” Yang Ming was a little surprised.
“He is considered famous in Donghai. I once saw him when I sent Young Master Tian Donghua to a party; he is a very low-key person,” said Wang Renping.
Listening to Wang Renping, Yang Ming smiled in relief. He thought that there was some secret with Wu Yunsheng. Yang Ming was extremely nervous recently; everything seemed suspicious to Yang Ming.
It was no wonder since Alice, who he met in Europe, was targeting him as well. Could this make Yang Ming feel at ease?
It was said that it was a hall, but in fact, it was a nightclub. The underworld gang was already history. Needless to say, Tian Long was not stupid. If he still engaged in the gang’s matters, wouldn’t he give the police a reason to investigate him?
Therefore, Tian Long only managed and controlled some entertainment venues, but even then, he still gained unprecedented profits.
This nightclub was established by Tian Long, so the Sun Family had little control over it. Because of this, Tian Long used it as his temporary headquarters.
Tian Long asked the driver to park the car because he didn’t come from the villa today, so he didn’t have Wang Renping to pick him up. After the car was parked, Tian Long got off and rushed into the nightclub under the escort of his four bodyguards.
Although in Donghai, Tian Long didn’t believe that someone dared to trouble him, it wasn’t wrong to be careful. Who knew if there would be any Sun Family’s loyal supporters fighting with him until one’s death under such a tense situation?
Yang Ming and Wang Renping came to the nightclub early and observed the nightclub from a long distance. After seeing Tian Long enter the nightclub, Yang Ming also started the car and parked the car closer.
“Is the name changing procedure done yet?” Tian Long looked at the documents in his hand and asked his office secretary impatiently.
“Not yet. I entrusted someone to handle it, but there are no results…” The secretary was also helpless. I’m being scolded because I can’t handle the matter. Why am I so unlucky?
“Didn’t I say that I don’t care how much it costs? Just change the company’s legal person into my name as soon as possible!” Tian Long was naturally anxious that there would be more worries as time passed by. Although Sun Hongjun had signed the equity transfer book, the company’s legal person wasn’t Tian Long yet, so Tian Long was anxious.
“Changing the name requires the company’s original legal person and new legal person to be present…” The secretary said in a dilemma. “This is a matter of principle. We have found someone, but there is no result. The agency companies only say that they will try.”
“D*mn, what if the original legal person is dead?” Tian Long snorted in agitation after hearing the secretary saying that it was so complicated.
“If he is dead, you need a certificate of death and a Will and Testament…” explained the secretary.
Tian Long rolled his eyes. He just simply complained about it as an analogy. He didn’t expect the secretary to take it seriously. He waved his hand helplessly. “Tell those agency companies to do it quickly. Money is not a problem as long as it can be done!”
“I will try my best, Mr. Tian!” The secretary quickly responded, and he carefully stepped out of Tian Long’s office.
“Brother Long, why don’t we finish it off? In for a penny, in for a pound…” In the office, one of Tian Long’s men suggested as he made a decapitating gesture.
This person was the third right hand of the nightclub, Li Xiangji. The nominal boss of the nightclub was Ma Qiang, but the daily operation was Shen Miaotu’s responsibility.
Shen Miaotu frowned after listening to Li Xiangji’s words. Li Xiangji did not consume the voodoo, but this kid was purely a person who jumps on the bandwagon, so he wasn’t worried that Li Xiangji would make any moves. However, his d*mn mouth was a problem. What are these suggestions?
If the Sun Family were really killed, probably Yang Ming wouldn’t give them the antidote. He would let them die on their own! Therefore, at this moment, Shen Miaotu was very nervous. He feared that Tian Long would adopt Li Xiangji’s opinion to harm the Sun Family!
However, Shen Miaotu couldn’t directly oppose Li Xiangji’s opinion at the moment because that would be too obvious. It was difficult to guarantee that Tian Long wouldn’t have any other ideas.
Shen Miaotu looked nervously at Tian Long to see what kind of decision he would make. If he heard that Tian Long really wanted to kill the Sun Family, then Shen Miaotu could only quickly call Yang Ming and Wang Renping for help.
“Your idea is really once and for all…” Tian Long looked at Li Xiangji and said faintly.
“That’s right!” Li Xiangji heard that Tian Long praised him, and he immediately revealed a smile. He didn’t have any abilities; he was promoted because he could kiss Tian Long’s *ss well, so his idea was really nonsense.
“However, it is easy to kill Sun Hongjun, but how do you tell the public how Sun Hongjun died?” Tian Long glared and said. “At that time, the police will investigate the cause of Sun Hongjun’s death, then there will be more trouble. Maybe it will mess up my matters! Stupid guy, just stand aside!”
After listening to Tian Long’s words, Shen Miaotu couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief. As long as Tian Long didn’t harm the Sun Family, then it would be easy. He just had to drag on for a while. When Yang Ming comes, everything would be solved.
Li Xiangji was agitated being scolded by Tian Long, then he flattened his lips and said, “Yes…”
“Shen Miaotu, you talk. Do you have any good ideas?” Tian Long’s eyes looked at Shen Miaotu.
Shen Miaotu was shocked and quickly retracted his thoughts. He said, “Brother Long, the current situation still has to follow the normal procedures. As long as Sun Hongjun does not appear, the Industrial and Commercial Bureau doesn’t dare just to change the legal person even if they have the nerve. This is a serious matter once it is exposed unless they don’t want to do their jobs anymore!”
“En, it makes sense; you continue!” Tian Long nodded, indicating that Shen Miaotu should continue; Shen Miaotu’s analysis was indeed good.
“So, although Brother Long has a high social status, allow me to be rude, Sun Hongjun’s status is higher. Who dares to offend him casually? Since you have used social relations, but you still can’t get this matter done after finding many people, why do you still hope for the license agency company to help you?” Shen Miaotu waved his hand. “It would be a waste of effort to look for them.”
In fact, how could Tian Long not know what Shen Miaotu was saying? But now, this was his last resort; there was no other way. Tian Long could only do this.
“So, what other good method do you have?” Tian Long asked. “What do you mean by following normal means?”
Shen Miaotu was now completely delaying the time. What he said sounded reasonable. In fact, it was all bullsh*t. Even if he didn’t say it, Tian Long knew it. However, Tian Long now wanted to fight for it even if there was a glimpse of hope, so he naturally didn’t think too much about it, and he listened patiently to Shen Miaotu’s words.
Shen Miaotu thought, Isn’t it easy to follow the standard procedures? Isn’t it just you going to the Industrial and Commercial Bureau with Sun Hongjun and changing your business license? Don’t you know such a simple thing?
Although he thought so, he couldn’t say that. If he said that, it would be strange if Tian Long didn’t get enraged!
“Brother Long, I think you still have to start from Sun Hongjun!” Shen Miaotu had no choice but to force himself to talk nonsense. “You need to think of a way to persuade Sun Hongjun to go with you to the Industrial and Commercial Bureau to change the legal person, but be wary that he doesn’t have the opportunity to escape or directly expose your conspiracy to the Industrial and Commercial Bureau. You know, Sun Hongjun’s social influence is bigger than yours. At that time, you are at a disadvantage.”
“What you said is the only viable way!” Tian Long nodded. “However, how can we make Sun Hongjun obedient?”
