Don’t Be a Kept Man
He could only feel his legs and stomach shivering in weakness.
The only thing he could manage to do was slide backwards, shaking his head and pretending to be dumb,
I don’t understand what you are saying.”
“I said you were dumb, and you are really dumb.
Of course, that type of owner will raise that type of dog.”
Huo Ming Chen has been suppressed by and lost to Lu Qi so many times now, that his poisonous tongue has leveled up quite a bit,
“I already had the ability to know that you would act today, and I was here so early to ambush you.
Do you really think that just cutting the camera feed outside is of any use to you right now?”
Hearing this, Chen Lian Dong lowered his head, face grey like ash, courage beaten out of him and regretted that he decided to do this at all.
Huo Ming Chen told the person beside him,
Just turn him in.
I wonder how many years someone gets for attempted murder?”
He stood up and was about to leave when Chen Lian Dong threw himself forward and grabbed his leg.
The latter could not hold it in and cried like he was about to die,
“Er-Shao! Er-Shao, please save me! Er-Shao! I was blindly used by him, it has nothing to do with me!! I didn’t want to kill someone, I didn’t!”
Huo Ming Chen emotionlessly kicked him away,
“You can keep those words for the police.
If you really were innocent, they absolutely wouldn’t be saving you a room in jail.”
“This was directed by the vice chairman! It’s all on the vice chairman! Er-Shao, you have to help me! I know a lot of things, a lot of things, the vice chairman wants to harm the chairman!!”
Chen Lian Dong has always been a coward.
At this critical moment, after being threatened and scared out of his wits, he blurted out everything that he knew, like a bowl of beans spilling onto the ground,
He already conspired with the people from Fu Hai to let this pass by, and after a few days he will pretend to be sick and pass the reins of the project to the chairman.
At that time there would be problems and holes and it would all be blamed on the chairman! When the annual meeting for board members starts, Huo Yuan Guang will use this time to make them vote for a change in chairman, and he’s already gotten some of them on board with that!”
Even though Huo Ming Chen already knew of those plans, hearing them being spoken out loud again made him grind his teeth in anger.
He took in a deep breath to calm himself, and coldly laughed,
“All talk and no evidence, how can I believe you?”
Hearing that there may be a chance for him, Chen Lian Dong quickly said,
“I do! I have evidence! Every time we talked, I recorded it! And there’s the balance statements, I have copies of the original, including him doing drugs, it was always me acting as the middleman for all these things for him!”
Huo Ming Chen suddenly felt it was quite a hollow victory, winning over these people.
Like minds gather together.
Huo Yuan Guang was an all talk, no action kind of man, the same as his followers,
“Dogs can’t change their genetics to keep from eating poo.
Ten years ago, he was kicked out of the Huo family for doing drugs, and he still dares to do it today.”
A carrot after a stick was enough to pry the evidence off of Chen Lian Dong’s hands.
Huo Ming Chen sent them straight to Huo Ming Cheng and commanded Chen Lian Dong,
“I’ll let you go after a while.
You should know very clearly what you should say and what you should not.
Don’t try to betray us.
I can protect myself, but Huo Yuan Guang may not protect you, do you understand?”
Chen Lian Dong quickly nodded his head, and swore over and over again that he would do as Huo Ming Chen said.
When he exited the hospital and the howling wind blew him awake, he felt like he was shivering out of his skin and found that his back was already covered in sweat.
He sat in the car and nervously dialed Huo Yuan Guang.
He swallowed dryly and tried to keep calm as he said,
“Vice chairman, it’s done.”
Huo Yuan Guang had not slept, and when he heard that, he breathed out a sigh of relief.
In a voice that suddenly sounded older than he was, he said,
“How did you do it?”
“Zhang Zhi Qiang, that gambling idiot was cornered by the loan sharks at home.
I found him and helped him return the money.
Then I forced him to come to the hospital to pick up his father.
That old man Zhang was too scared by the threats, and he became angry enough to hit and scold his son.
Zhang Zhi Qiang angered his father so much so that the old man just died like that, from the outburst.
Zhang Zhi Qiang’s going back to their old home tomorrow, and he’s going to bury him in their ancestral grave.
No one will know.”
Huo Yuan Guang seemed to be very satisfied,
“I’ll send you the money.
Don’t come to the company tomorrow.
Ask for a leave of absence.
Drive the car with the body yourself.
Make sure you see it get buried.”
When Chen Lian Dong realized he had muddled through somehow, he released a quiet sigh of relief.
After he hung up, with his voice shaking, he said to the person behind him,
“I have completed what Er-Shao has told me to do.”
The person did not make a noise, and after a vibration rang out in the silence, he got out of the car.
The door shut with a bang, and the sound shook Chen Lian Dong with fear.
A high end black sports car stopped by Chen Lian Dong’s car, and the car window rolled down to reveal the devilish face of Huo Ming Chen.
He made words with his mouth instead of voicing them, smiling and complimenting him,
“This is what a clever man would choose.”
The window rolled back up, and the car disappeared into the night like a ghost.
In a good temperament, Huo Ming Chen dialed a number, and after ringing three times, it was picked up,
Lu Qi seemed to be working overtime, and over the telephone, Huo Ming Chen could hear nonstop tapping noises on a keyboard.
Huo Ming Chen gave a flirtatious look, not caring that the other would not see it and said flirtatiously,
“Hey precious baby, were you thinking of me?”
Lu Qi calmly replied,
“I think you are thinking of my precious baby.”
Huo Ming Chen was driving his car on his end, Lu Qi’s driving the car on his end, no one losing to the other.1
The author has something to say:
Author (waving a flag): Please slow down.
*1 “Driving the car” or starting the car is a slang phrase that is meant to say starting sex or something related to sexual intercourse.
It’s usually associated with a more knowledgeable person “driving the car”, teaching the other person, or making them enjoy/understand sex.
In this way, it’s kind of like … slang that hints towards sex, or like Huo Ming Chen is driving his physical car, Lu Qi is starting the metaphorical car ride for/towards sex.
And the author is referring to that for them to slow down for the ride.
Also a little tidbit for the title: you can take it as like a play on words of “like father like son/like mother like daughter”, but more in reference that they get along well(one following the other).
