Chapter 36 Arrange for You
"Surely we can take this one man down if we join hands." Zheng Linrui did not sound convinced by Qi Yunzhong's words. Who would have thought that the lucky bastard married such a powerful husband?
"It is hard to say. Xinru, just drop the case first. I will discuss it with your father." Though being mysterious and low-profile, Si Jinheng was a man second to none in his power. Head-on confrontation with such a dangerous figure had better be avoided.
Fu Xinru could not but call her lawyer to drop the case against Li Qianluo. With hatred, she made an investigation into Si Jinheng.
Qi Yunzhong soon got in touch with Fu Hongchang, Zheng Hang and Luo Jinwei. They then had a discussion in the meeting room.
All of them were sophisticated businessmen. However, they all went silent at the mentioning of Si Jinheng's name. "Fu, Si Jinheng's power and wild ambition are beyond our imagination. It is a marvel that he could gain a firm foothold in the business field at such a young age. Now that we know Li Qianluo is his wife, we should not provoke her."
Luo Jinwei was timider than the others. It was his custom to stay away from those that he dared not provoke.
"Luo, it is not good to look down upon ourselves. Our children may be prosecuted. We'd better not sit idle." Fu Hongchang said with a sour face, for he did not believe that Si Jinheng was so powerful that he could rival the four of them.
"Fancy you having the nerve to say that! If it were not for the fact that Zeming and Xinru provoked Li Qianluo in the first place, Xinxin would not be involved." Luo Jinwei had alrealy warned Luo Xinxin not to get close to that scheming Fu Xinru. Luo Xinxin refused to take his father's advice. Then she got it in the neck. But fortunately, it seemed that Si Jinheng didn't blame her, as she didn't talk much.
"Luo, you are already in. Do not say that." Thinking of his disappointing son, Qi Yunzhong turned red with anger and decided to teach him a lesson after returning home.
Luo Jinwei left right away, for he didn't want to get involved in this matter. He made up his mind to keep her daughter grounded upon returning home. "Qi Yunzhong is such an old fox that he even framed his best friend. It is better to stay away from him, " Luo Jinwei thought to himself.
Luo Jinwei's attitude irritated the other three. Well, the alliance was now already one man short.
"Xinru has discontinued the suit. We would figure something out later, should Si Jinheng kept pushing this issue. If he did not, then the whole thing would be over for good. As for the grievances that Zeming and Xinru have suffered, it is not the right time to get back at her now. Li Qianluo will reap what she has sowed sooner or later." This was the simple expedient that Qi Yunzhong could dope out at the moment.
Qi Yunzhong would warn Qi Zeming and Fu Xinru not to offend Si Jinheng any more.
In Luo's house.
"Slap!" A slap loudly echoed across the living room. Luo Xinxin stared at her father in disbelief.
"Luo, what are you doing?" Deng Xuanxuan hurried to hand Luo Xinxin, her youngest daughter, who almost fell onto the ground, wondering what made the good-tempered Luo Jinwei fly into a rage.
"Luo Xinxin! From this moment on, keep yourself away from Fu Xinru and Zheng Linrui, or else you would be banned from this house!" Luo Jinwei had warned her many times, but Luo Xinxin just turned a deaf ear to him. It was by sheer luck that she managed to keep out of this mess, or the whole family and the Fujiang Group would go down with her!
If Fu Hongchang and the other knew their place, they should definitely not mess with Li Qianluo and Si Jinheng!
"Father! I did nothing but hang out with them. Why do you do this to me?" It was the first time that Luo Xinxin had been slapped by her father. She was left speechless with grievance.
