Chapter 289: Consequences of being arrogant
The Miracle Commerce Imperial City headquarters was the great scholar Gu Qianqiu’s manor.
This was a special reward given to the great scholar by the Southern Summer King for all the contributions he had made towards the Southern Summer Country. It was only inferior to the royal palace and the Three Rulers’ manors, and it could only be bigger than the Central State headquarters.
Gu Qianqiu was not used to staying in this large manor, but to settle the Meng sisters as soon as possible, he had vacated the manor and turned it into the Miracle Commerce Imperial City headquarters.
It was because of this.
The people of the Imperial City knew that the great scholar was related to Miracle Commerce, so when Miracle Commerce entered the city and did many things resolutely, there were few people who stopped them and even though it went against the benefit of many people, they still encountered minimal resistance.
Today was Meng Qingwu’s birthday.
The vice chairman of Miracle Commerce was not simple, able to open up a place for Miracle Commerce in Imperial City in less than two months. Although she was related to the great scholar, it was also related to her own skills. If she were swapped for an average manager, they wouldn’t have even accomplished a fourth of what she had!
Like today, Miracle Commerce’s products filled Imperial City.
Meng Qingwu had become a goddess in the hearts of the Imperial City people!
A nation collapsing beautiful young girl, not only had shocking wealth, also had an astonishing ability. Being able to have a wife like Meng Qingwu was now the most popular phrase among the Imperial City citizens.
This was just the beginning.
With Miracle Commerce’s potential, this made Miracle Commerce unstoppable and they would soon be the most outstanding company in the Southern Summer Country. Because of this, Meng Qingwu’s birthday was not simple. This gave countless people a chance and a reason to get closer to Meng Qingwu, so they came to give generous gifts.
Meng Qingwu had just arrived, so she had no choice but to give these local tyrants face.
When Meng Qingwu had the chance to stand firm, these people would not even have a chance to flatter her.
When Chu Tian arrived at Miracle Commerce, he was satisfied with their headquarters, “This house is much more luxurious than the one in Central State, it isn’t that far from the royal palace.”
This was a manor built from nine palaces, with an area that was 50% bigger than Central State City’s headquarters. There was also much more space inside. Even if ten thousand people were to live here, there would be room to spare and wouldn’t feel crowded at all.
This was enough to satisfy the needs of a large scale developing company!
Nangong Yun said disdainfully, “Elder sister Qingwu is not only smart, but she is very hardworking, personally taking care of everything. She’s not like those people whose shadows can’t be seen all day!”
“Are you criticizing your boss, me? You’re mistaken if you say this.” Chu Tian said in a thick faced manner, “Am I being lazy deliberately? Aren’t I intentionally leaving things for you to do to strengthen your position in the company? You have to understand your boss’ compassion, I need to protect you from rumours and also carve out a stage for you.”
Nangong Yun rolled her eyes and was disinclined to speak to this fellow, “What are we standing here for? After travelling for half a month, we can finally get something good to eat! Let’s go!”
The three of them walked up and a guard stopped them, “Stop, do you have an invitation?”
“What? Actually asking if I have an invitation!” Chu Tian walked forward while patting his face, “Please open your eyes. The handsome face in front of you is my entrance pass!”
The guard’s face turned black with anger.The outer guards of Miracle Commerce were recruited in Imperial City. They were all set by the great scholar and the Calm Martial Ruler, so it was normal for them to not have seen Chu Tian. Nangong Yun quickly came up and took out a token from her waist, “Do you recognize this?”
“Ah, this is…….”
The guard’s faces changed.
This was a Miracle Commerce high level personnel token, the second miss Yingying also had one, so these people were at the same level as Meng Yingying. The guards quickly moved to the side and respectfully asked the three of them in.
Chu Tian was very depressed.
Fuck, this is my own territory!
But seeing these guards, each with their strong builds and decent strength, it seemed like Miracle Commerce’s strength in Imperial City was not small!
Miracle Commerce’s headquarters was already filled with people, with the staff running around to entertain the guests. At this time, the banquet had already started with source energy chefs cooking a feast and waiters bringing the food in.
“Quickly look!” Nangong Yun looked to the side and said in pleasant surprise, “Isn’t that Yingying and elder sister Qingwu?”
The three of them looked over and found the Meng sisters standing in the middle of the hall. The two of them looked very formal as they received all the guests that came. After not seeing the sisters for a month, they seemed thinner, but the colour of their faces was still good, showing that they had made progress in their cultivation.
“Heavenly Cloud Commerce sends a portion of ten thousand year old amethyst!”
“The Zhao Family patriarch sends a secretly refined Beauty Pill!”
The countless gifts were like snowflakes as they floated into the main hall, forming a small hill. Chu Tian was stunned seeing all of this. How could there be this many gifts just for a birthday? It even made him want to host one!
Before the three of them could head over.
Suddenly, a voice resounded out, “The Wang Family’s young master Wang Yuan sends ten boxes of precious sea pearls, a hundred pieces of thousand year gold thread silk, and a tamed dragon beast carriage…..in order to congratulate young miss Meng Qingwu on her birthday!”
The crowd fell into an uproar.
Such a large gift!
Was there a need to give this much for a single birthday celebration?
Meng Qingwu slightly knit her brows, not seeming very happy. However, she restored her expression and said with a courteous smile, “Thank you young master Wang Yuan!”
“Ha, ha, ha!” Wang Yuan was a suave looking young man who seemed younger than Meng Qingwu, being only around seventeen-eighteen years old. From his followers and temperament, he clearly came from a large family, “Our visit today isn’t just to congratulate the vice chairman on her birthday, but also for another important matter. The matter today could be considered a double blessing.”
The Wang Family had a strong influence in Imperial City.
This was a large family of the kingdom, only being inferior to the Three Great Clans.
Meng Qingwu was not fond of this family, but they had a strong influence, so she couldn’t easily move against them. She was a smart person, so while the Wang Family was being overbearing, she would first use courtesy before force. The matter that followed would surely be an awkward matter for them.
“How about young master Wang talk about this matter after the feast?”
“No, no! This matter must be known by everyone!” Wang Yuan shook his head, not letting Meng Qingwu avoid this topic, “My family has already agreed to let me marry young miss Meng Yingying!”
With this sentence.
The crowd was in an uproar.
The Meng sisters were shocked.
“Congratulations to young master Wang!”
“Congratulations to young master Wang!”
Everyone stood up to congratulate him.
Wang Yuan said with a happy smile, “This kind of large matter, I think we should just set the wedding for a large day already. What does chairman Meng think about this?!”
Wang Yuan was here to propose.
Meng Yingying almost jumped from her rage, “What nonsense are you saying? Even if your family agrees, does that mean I agree? How could someone like you be so mindless!”
“Yingying, believe me. From the moment I laid eyes on you, I fell deeply in love with you. This deed between men and women should be decided on by the elders and I don’t think chairman Meng will reject such a good matter.” Wang Yuan looked at Meng Yingying with a face of assurance, “After our families unite, our progress will be unstoppable. Even the Three Great Clans will be apprehensive!”
“Young master Wang really knows how to kid!” Meng Qingwu’s face sunk, clearly showing her displeasure, “I do not dare be careless with a large matter for my younger sister. If Yingying really wants it, then it is fine, but you can’t force a marriage!”
“Humph? Could this young master not be worthy of Yingying? I’m curious, does Yingying want to marry into the Wang Family?”
“Nonsense! Go look at yourself in a mirror!” Meng Yingying angrily scolded him before adding a firm line, “I already like someone and you can’t even compare to single hair on his head!”
Meng Qingwu was not courteous either, “Qingwu cannot accept this request!”
This Wang Yuan was shamed in front of everyone and his face turned livid, “This young master came to propose with sincerity and you dare treat me like this? Do you know my Wang Family’s strength? If you offend the Wang Family, you should give up on staying in Imperial City!”
Meng Qingwu did not yield an inch, “I ask young master Wang to take his gift and leave. Miracle Commerce has never depended on others!”
“Meng Qingwu, do you not know? You already belong to my Wang Family. Just marry your little sister over. Everyone is one big family, let’s just talk it out.”
Meng Qingwu’s face fell, “What did you say?”
“I’ll be honest with you and warn everyone present who has ideas about chairman Meng,” Wang Yuan arrogantly announced in a loud voice like a sovereign’s, “Meng Qingwu is the woman my big brother has eyes on and she can only belong to my big brother, everyone else should give up. If you dare take a step forward, you should think about the consequences.”
There were many talented youths who admired Meng Qingwu, but hearing Wang Yuan’s words, their mindsets all changed.
If that person likes her.
Then Meng Qingwu was really…..Pity, truly a pity!
“Who do you fucking think you are!”
A figure charged forward and slammed a fist into Wang Yuan’s face. Wang Yuan’s handsome face’s bone structure was distorted as he was slammed into the wall.
“This is bad!”
“The Wang Family’s young master has been hit!”
“This will create a catastrophe!”
The guests fell into a panic. They all began to leave to avoid being caught up in the troubles.
The Meng sisters were stunned, but once they saw who it was, Meng Yingying could only stare at him with eyes that seemed like they would spew out fire at any moment, “You……You actually know to come!”
Chu Tian smiled at her, “We’ll talk about it later!”
After saying this.
Chu Tian continued forward.
Wang Yuan had a look of panic on his face. He spat out blood while speaking in a panicked voice, “You dare hit me?”
Chu Tian pulled out the Netherworld Sword, “What does it matter if I hit you? If I don’t let you taste a bit of my strength, then you won’t know my, Chu Tian’s methods!”
When he saw the cold as ice blade and felt Chu Tian’s unrestrained killing intent, Wang Yuan was filled with fear knowing that this person would really make a move.
Meng Qingwu quickly stopped him by saying, “Chu Tian, enough!”
This person was Chu Tian?
Although Chu Tian had not arrived in Imperial City yet, his name had already spread through this city. This was a fellow that even dared to capture the Western Marquis and the Southern State Army, this was the most rampant youth in the history of the Southern Summer Country.
But because Chu Tian was too well known, this incited the displeasure of many people in Imperial City. The Wang Family’s big young master was one of those people.
“I even dare hit the Western Marquis.” Chu Tian laughed as he looked at this brat, “Do you think you’re more precious than the Western Marquis?”
“Chu Tian!” Meng Qingwu already ran to Chu Tian’s side, “Today is my birthday, give me some face!”
Chu Tian saw that Meng Qingwu’s eyes were strange. He knew that Meng Qingwu had a cautious disposition, but Meng Qingwu also understood Chu Tian’s personality. If this person did not have a special background, just based on the fact that he tried to forcefully obtain her little sister, Meng Qingwu would not have let him off.
“Alright!” Chu Tian put away the sword, “I won’t cut him, but he can’t avoid a beating! Nangong, he’s yours!”
Nangong Yun cracked her knuckles and dragged Wang Yuan out of the hall with a fiendish grin on her face.
The pitiful shrill cries made a chill run down the spine of everyone there.
Meng Qingwu’s eyes sparkled as she let out a helpless sigh. Chu Tian was the incarnation of trouble, causing this matter as soon as he arrived in Imperial City. He did not even ask who the other side was before using such heavy methods. This matter would not end with just this!
