Chapter 1


“Chief Jiang….” The assistant called, trembling.
Ever since he entered the office and said the line ‘the other party still refuses to move’, his boss had fished out his phone and started playing a puzzle matching game.
Yet that cheerful tinkling music made him break out in a cold sweat in the air conditioned room.

Jiang Chao Ge let out a hiss, eyes never moving away from the screen, long thin fingers moving rapidly.
His pupils reflected the light of the phone, seeming as if there’s a bit of coldness in them, fine curled eyelashes appearing even more distinct.
The high bridge of his nose also seemed to be lit by a layer of light, like an unsheathed sword, perfectly straight and sharp.
Thin pursed lips transmitted an annoyed message.

The assistant’s little heart jumped, swallowing incessantly in order to relieve the nervousness in his heart.
Normally, his boss greeted people with a smiling face, and was also very generous with his subordinates.
In addition, he was both tall and handsome, and always spoke with a bit of sluggishness and idleness.
He was simply the dream partner of all the women in the office.
It was just that he had followed his boss for many years and had some understanding towards his boss’s complex background.
He knew that this refined and elite image is just a layer of skin.
Once he was provoked, he had seen how his boss dealt with competitors.
They’ve been unable to deal with this matter of pulling down the old house and resettling it’s occupants time and time again.
From the moment he stepped into the office, he was already prepared to be blamed.

Jiang Chao Ge let out a mutter of disappointment.
It was evident that he had lost this round.
He threw the phone on the table and looked at the assistant his chin propped up, sharp eyebrows raised slightly, “how many times have you been there?”

The assistant said in a small voice: “ Its the fourth time.”

Jiang Chao Ge tapped the surface of the table with his index finger, “The price has already been increased to this figure.
He is still unwilling to move.
Do you think this is a question of money?”

The assistant pressed his lips together, eyes fixed on the black diamond ring on his boss’s index finger.
Such an expensive ring.
He had seen his boss using it like an iron knuckle, one punch making people look for teeth all over the floor.
He could not help but tremble.

Jiang Chao Ge clicked his tongue two times, “This head of yours.” He stood up.

The assistant subconsciously took a step back.

Jiang Zhao Ge stretched out his hand and pinched his neck, “What’s wrong? Afraid I’ll beat you?”

The assistant’s neck shrunk back.
He shook his head furiously.

Jiang Chao Ge lowered his head and whispered beside his ear with a smile, “Why would I beat you? Don’t be afraid.” Then he patted his back.

The assistant nodded stiffly, still feeling as if his back gave off a cold air.

“Let the driver prepare the car, I will personally go meet him.” Jiang Chao Ge opened his long legs and strode out the door with large strides.


Jiang Chao Ge got out of the car, and inspected the large residential area in front of him that was to be demolished, like a king inspecting his own territory.

After going through many challenges for so many years, this old city district transformation project will push his career to new heights.
With the olive branches that the government continually threw out, huge loans and strong business partners that came to your door, one can predict more than 4 billion dollars in net profit and more room for unpredictable profit.
He will become the most radiant young upstart in Dong Ping City.
Who would’ve thought that 10 years ago, Jiang Chao Ge was still a small pickpocket on the streets.

At the moment, the project had encountered a small obstacle— a considerably stubborn ‘nailed down’ household who wouldn’t relocate no matter what.
Succeeding in this important matter was originally beset with difficulties.
Jiang Chao Ge did not take it to heart.
When a problem arose, the problem would be solved.
Nobody can stop him rising in the world.

With the assistant and the body guard clustered around him, he entered the residential area.
It had just rained.
The broken construction site had mud everywhere.
His handmade leather boots from Italy was very quickly stained dirty.
This time, how come he can’t even live up to a pair of boots, he thought.

Only after walking for almost ten minutes did they find the old fashioned quadrangle dwelling in the messy residential area.

The bodyguard was about to aggressively pound at the door when Jiang Chao Ge stopped him, went up and softly knocked at the door three times.
Although this house appeared unremarkable, Jiao Chao Ge recognised with one glance that the front door was made of pink ivory wood.
He had bought and sold wood a few years ago.
People who dare take this type of wood to make the front door definitely aren’t an ordinary person.
No wonder they turned their noses up at his money.

Soon, the front door opened, and a pretty little girl poked her head out, her face alert and impatient, “I already said we won’t move, don’t come anymore!”

Jiang Chao Ge smiled warmly, and said politely, “Hello, I’m the chairman of Chao Ge Group, the surname is Jiang.
Some of my subordinates visited a few times before.
There may have been a few misunderstandings with what was said.
I came here today especially to apologise.
Moreover I hope I’m able to properly communicate with the owner of this house.”

The little girl hesitated.
Looking at Jiang Chao Ge’s handsome face, a faint blush suddenly appeared on both cheeks.
She frowned and said, “There’s nothing more to communicate, Grandpa said he definitely won’t move.

Jiang Chao Ge smiled and said, “You are unwilling to move.
We will not give up so easily for the overall harmony of the new district.
This stalemate does not bring any benefits to both sides.
I am the person with the final say in this project.
I came here today to communicate a means both parties can accept.”

The little girl still wants to say something.
A voice sounded from inside the house.
Let them in.

The little girl opened the door.
Jiang Chao Ge left the bodyguard and the assistant outside the door and strolled in by himself.

Stepping into the yard, Jiang Chao Ge suddenly felt a indescribable feeling, like there was something in this house that was attracting him making him feel a flash of shock.
The courtyard was very spacious, full of flowers, plants and greenery.
The little rock bridge was unique and elegant.
The pool used to raise koi was beside the small wayside pavilion.
The red gold koi swam amongst the lotus leaves.
The two rowed quadrangle dwelling in front of his eyes had green eaves and vermillion pillars.
The eaves turned upwards like wings in flight, with an air of great antiquity.

Looking at such an elegant old residence, even Jiang Chao Ge felt a bit like he couldn’t bear to tear it down.
There was no knowing how old this old residence was.
It truly was a bit of a shame to destroy it.
However, he was a businessman seeking nothing but profit.
In his mind, this piece of land was currently spouting out gold.

Jiang Chao Ge was led into the main house.

The sharp eyed old man that sat on the old fashioned wooden armchair should be the head of household.
There are also two youngsters in the house, both with a dignified appearance.
While they wore ordinary clothes, to Jiao Chao Ge who had practised martial arts before, one glance is enough to tell that they both also practiced martial arts.
He felt very puzzled in his heart.
It seemed that before setting out, he should’ve first found someone to investigate
