Chapter 961: Friendship
Little Qiu and the others also knew Li Dagang. Seeing Li Dagang coming, they quickly called him “Brother Li” or “Brother Gang.”
Li Dagang had already met Yang Ming’s two girlfriends, so he didn’t think it was strange to see Wang Xiaoyan at the moment. Brother Yang was a bad*ss man. Li Dagang had long been accustomed to it.
However, this Wang Xiaoyan was somewhat familiar. Li Dagang thought about it but didn’t remember. He thought he saw her when he was with Brother Yang.
“Dagang, let me introduce to you, Wang Xiaoyan, my neighbor, and my classmate.” Yang Ming pointed to Wang Xiaoyan and said.
” Ah !” Li Dagang suddenly remembered, pointing to Wang Xiaoyan and said, “When you bought your house, I handled it!”
For Yang Ming’s friend, Wang Xiaoyan couldn’t be too indifferent. The identity of the two people had been revealed to each other. Now it was time to let go of the past grievances and let Yang Ming help her to expand the assassin organization, so Wang Xiaoyan also tried her best to be easygoing. “Hello. Hehe, you still remember me.”
“I was reminded of this by Brother Yang, but when you looked at the house, you immediately signed the contract and paid. There was minimal contact, so the impression was not very deep!” Li Dagang could not help but feel awkward as he said it. This confidante of Brother Yang, it seems that she has a high social status. She bought such a big villa and paid for it without blinking an eye.
“I didn’t expect you to come so fast. It is not even noon. It is so early in the morning, I can’t eat anything yet.” Yang Ming said, “What if we do something else?”
“Yang Ming, why don’t you take me around the university? Dagang and I have never been to university before. I have not felt the atmosphere in the university yet. Xiaoying also said that she wants to walk around the campus and experience it, but we didn’t have a chance. Now, with both you and your friend who are university students to lead the way, we can go in justifiably!” Xu Peng suggested.
“Okay, let’s go.” Yang Ming nodded. People who have gone to university had a hard time understanding the frame of mind of those who have never been to university, and their yearnings and hopes toward the university.
However, Yang Ming was probably a little more unusual because Yang Ming did not have the same experience of being admitted to a university. However, by chance, Yang Ming got his special abilities and was admitted into the university smoothly.
However, the bad days before the university entrance examination were still vivid in Yang Ming’s mind, so he understood the current frame of mind of Li Dagang and Xu Peng.
As soon as she heard that she was going to walk around the university, Xiaoying was very excited. She set aside the matters in her hands and said with pleasure, “Wait. I have to change my clothes. At least, I have to somewhat look like the students…”
“Go ahead.” Xu Peng found it a little funny, but he could really understand Xiaoying’s mood. Xiaoying’s academic performance was not bad. She did not continue to study at university but chose to work in the city because of her family’s conditions.
Xiaoying’s family opened a small shop in the village. It usually didn’t make much money. The family still needed to live, so it was impossible to pay Xiaoying’s high tuition fee. Therefore, Xiaoying was forced to drop out of school when she was at Grade 12.
Although it was because of economic reasons, it did not dampen Xiaoying’s yearning for a university education. She knew that she couldn’t go to university again in her lifetime, so Xiaoying wanted to go to the university campus and at least feel the atmosphere.
It didn’t take long for Xiaoying to come out. She was dressed in a relatively simple winter dress, and she looked like a freshman. Even Xu Peng’s eyes lit up.
“I didn’t expect it. Xiaoying, when you dress like this, you look just like a university student.” Li Dagang smiled and said.
“Enough. She wouldn’t look like one when she stands next to you. You look like a white-collar worker in society who came to school to chase women.” Yang Ming looked at Li Dagang and said ironically.
” Haha , it would be fine to chase women. I don’t have a girlfriend yet.” Li Dagang said without a care after he heard it.
Xu Peng informed Little Qiu, and then took out all the money in the bar, leaving only some change in it, and then left the billiard hall with Yang Ming.
After seeing Yang Ming’s car, Xu Peng was markedly surprised. Xu Peng was clear about Yang Ming’s family conditions. It could be said that Yang Ming was not much better than him, but at the moment, Yang Ming had already bought a BMW.
Seeing Xu Peng’s puzzled eyes, Yang Ming said, ” Big Peng, didn’t Dagang tell you about me?”
“No.” Xu Peng shook his head.
“Brother Yang, I thought you had already told Big Peng.” Li Dagang shook his head and then said to Xu Peng, “Big Peng, Brother Yang is now very bad*ss. I am preparing to follow Brother Yang later. How about you? Are you ready?”
“I…” Xu Peng initially thought that Yang Ming asked him to go mingle in the society, but now it seemed that this was not the case. How can he buy a BMW if he just mingled in society? How much does he have to mingle around? At least, he had to be a boss to have this ability.
For the average street punk, never mind buying a car. There probably was not enough money to play outside. Just like the few guys who came to the billiard room to cause trouble, they all have little money in their pockets. They were trying to get rid of some money from someone else.
“Dagang, Big Peng has his own ideas. Let’s not force him. Let him think about it. Once he figures that out, he will come to us.” Yang Ming smiled and said.
Wang Xiaoyan sat in the front passenger seat, while Li Dagang and Xu Peng and Xiaoying sat behind. The space of the X5 was still relatively large, so the three people in the back row didn’t appear to be crowded.
“Brother Yang, now… what are you doing?” Xu Peng was afraid that the life of fighting and killing would involve Xiaoying and the children. After all, he was someone with a family now. He cared a lot about these.
But now, it seemed that the situation was not the case, so he couldn’t help but ask. After all, one should constantly strive to make progress. If there were a better career, Xu Peng would also not be willing to stay put at this small billiard hall.
“I opened a jewelry company with Zhang Bing.” Yang Ming smiled and said, “Zhang Bing, you should also know him. He is my high school buddy. He and Li Dagang are very friendly. He just didn’t really skip classes.”
” Oh , I remember. You and he used to come to the billiard hall.” Xu Peng nodded. “Brother Yang, I’m sorry. I thought you were mingling in the underworld now…”
“Underworld, Hehe . How do I say this? There are some connections. This is a business. It is inevitable to have to deal with the underworld more or less.” Yang Ming said with a smile, “Just like you opening a billiard hall. You want to do business safely. However, there are always small punks in the society who nitpicks and ask for some protection fees.”
Xu Peng also agreed tacitly after listening. Indeed, the fact was like this. Even if you don’t look for them, they will find you.
“Sometimes, if you want to grow your business, the local underworld becomes a kind of resistance. If these people are not served well, they will cause you trouble all day long. After all, these people are all money-grubbing. They couldn’t be fine with others earning money, so they just want to get something for nothing.” Yang Ming explained, “So, in order to eliminate this fundamentally, we must control underworld in our own hands.”
“Control in your own hands. How is this possible!” Xu Peng exclaimed with a bitter smile.
“But it is fine. Song Jiang’s boss, Bao Sanli, has a good relationship with me, so we can do what we want to do with peace of mind.” Yang Ming didn’t tell too much to Xu Peng. After all, some things were too confidential. Yang Ming didn’t want too many people to know.
” Ah !” Xu Peng was a little surprised after he heard it. He couldn’t not have heard of Bao Sanli’s name, but he didn’t expect Bao Sanli to be good friends with Brother Yang.
“So, Big Peng.” Yang Ming noticed that Xu Peng’s tone was not as firm as before, so he said, “I have an idea. If you are really interested in the billiard hall business, then let’s continue to do it.”
“What do you mean?” Xu Peng was surprised, and he did not really understand it.
“We can set up a billiard club or a clubhouse to make the business bigger. Don’t limit it to the present,” explained Yang Ming.
“But, that needs a lot of money…” Xu Peng certainly wanted to do the business well. Who didn’t want a bigger business?
” Hey . Big Peng, you have no money, but Brother Yang has it!” Li Dagang smiled and said, “Brother Yang gives you money, and then you go run the business. The profit will be split in half. Is that alright with you?”
Li Dagang knew that Yang Ming didn’t care about this money at all, so he directly made the call for Yang Ming and said it.
” Ah … how is this appropriate?” Xu Peng knew that if a club like what Yang Ming said were really opened, it would not be possible without at least a million yuan. Moreover, the money basically was all given by Yang Ming, and Xu Peng would contribute his labor. As they say, he was a wage earner. How could he get half of the profits?
“What Li Dagang said is what I actually mean.” Yang Ming smiled and said, “We are buddies. There is no need to be polite. Think about it. If you think it is okay, let’s plan it carefully. Don’t worry. Taking three to five million yuan all at once won’t hurt anything.”
After he heard Yang Ming’s words, Xu Peng’s face was full of surprise. He thought that the investment of one million was a big number. He didn’t expect Brother Yang to invest three to five million to do this!
It was false to say that Xu Peng was not tempted, but if this were not done well and Brother Yang’s money was lost, what could he do? Although Brother Yang would definitely not blame him for this, he would not be comfortable deep down in his heart.
Moreover, Xiaoying who was on the side clicked her tongue. She really didn’t think that Big Peng had such a powerful friend, and they were good buddies.Why didn’t he mention it before?
“Okay, then let me think about it.” Xu Peng nodded seriously. He also understood Yang Ming’s intention. Yang Ming was actually helping him. Otherwise, Yang Ming would definitely not be interested in investing in billiard clubs.
