Chapter 830 – One Sentence, One Counterattack And One Pit
Old Master Chu stopped walking. As he listened to the constant screams from the small yard, he let out a long sigh. He felt himself being put in a great quandary.
The old master had long been very miserable. I’m not suitable for being a clan master. All that I can do is to create troubles. I’m not interested in these power disputes, and has long been trying to stay away from them as far as possible. I can also admit that I’m half-witted. But why would my elder appoint me to be the clan master then?
It’s a pity that I’ve been toasted on this blazing fire for so many years…
That afternoon, he held a clan meeting. The majority stood to their opinion to take in Chu Yang’s medical center to the clan, and the opinions of Chu Feiling, his wife and Duan Shuyi were directly ignored.
The resolution was passed almost unanimously.
In the face of enormous interests, the key personnel of the clan did not put Chu Yang in their eyes at all: One who was newly-returned, skilled in medicines… but had his cultivations thoroughly abolished… was after all a good-for-nothing!
Hold hundreds of thousands of purple crystals in his own pocket? This was too…
Yang Ruolan flipped the conference table on the spot, while kicked the table in front of Chu Feiling. She also conveniently picked up another table near her and struck it towards Chu Feilong’s head.
Then, she gave a few ringing slaps on Chu Feilong’s face, and pointed and yelled at him, “Chu Feilong, I know that this is your fucking idea. I’ll tell you now, I can tolerate the matters that are directed to me in the past, but… from now on, if you dare to touch a single hair of my son, I’ll kill all your three sons!”
Instantly, everyone in the Chu clan who was involved in the meeting was shocked!
It wasn’t that Chu Feilong could not dodge, but that Yang Ruolan was his sister-in-law. As the saying went, the wife of one’s elder brother should be given the same respect as his mother. Chu Feilong could only bear with Yang Ruolan as everyone was looking at them.
Wiping away the sawdust on his face, his eyes flickered coldly. He said with a bitter smile, “Sister-in-law, don’t be so agitated… I had no choice but to do so for the sake of our clan’s development and prosperity…”
Yang Ruolan sneered sarcastically and said, “You understand yourself what you’re doing this for! If you don’t want to lose your bloodlines, be honest in front of me!”
With a few ‘bangs’, she kicked off a few tables nearest to her. Yang Ruolan strode out of the hall and said her last words, “A group of motley crew who envy the good and able wants to develop and strengthen the clan! What a joke!”
Such words were spoken against the entire Chu clan!
Chu Feiling immediately went to chase after his wife, worrying that she would act radically in a heat…
The hall became silent.
Old Master Chu looked heavy and grim.
One of the in-charge raised his courage and said, “This… This is so disgraceful… The great lady is so narrow-minded and competitive for power and gains. How is this the way that a daughter-in-law should behave… Clan master, I suggest you to…”
Not waiting for him to finish saying, Chu Feilong stood up violently and slapped the in-charge heavily. Chu Feilong said furiously, “She’s my sister-in-law, and everything that she does on me is correct! Who are you? How dare you intervene in our family matters!”
That person realized that his intended flattery had caught the horse leg, and instantly turned awkward. He was slapped into seeing stars and at a loss of what to do.
Chu Feilong wiped away a handful of cold sweat in his heart. Making Chu Yang to surrender his medical center had already irritated the old master. If he was still told to punish Yang Ruolan, he would feel even more sorry to his grandson. How could he punish the mother of his grandson? Perhaps the old master would explode on the spot, and all his schemes would be spoilt…
Chu Feilong’s intervention occurred at the right moment. When the old master was about to explode, Chu Feilong’s conduct made the old master swallow his rage back.
Chu Yang was in the medical center desperately earning purple crystals. He was currently holding on to the hands of a thievish-looking old man.
Big Boss Chu was very relieved about the event that happened between the Xiao clan and Li clan. He had been wearing a smile on his face all the time in recent days.
It was almost noon. After Big Boss Chu had sent away his last patient, he crossed his legs up and hummed a small tune, ready to drink some tea. At this moment, he saw two people coming out from outside.
They looked handsome and wore brilliant gowns and smiley faces.
“Big brother, looks like you’re busy here.”
Chu Yang smiled instantly, “Why are both of you here?”
“From today onwards, both of us would be muddling in your place,” Chu Feiteng smiled and looked at Chu Yang, saying, “The clan had sent the both of us here…”
Chu Yang jerked for a moment and smiled. “Oh?”
“The clan has made some other arrangements for this medical center,” Chu Tenghu looked at Chu Yang a little pathetically and said, “Big brother, we’re after all people of the Chu clan. Everything that the clan has arranged is for the sake of the clan.”
Chu Tengjiao laughed and said, “Big brother, your place… is really shabby. Is there even no place to sit?”
Chu Yang squinted his eyes and smiled softly, “In other words, are my two younger brothers going to assume duties here?”
Chu Tenghu bowed and said, “We’ll have to rely on big brother to take care of us.”
Chu Feiyan couldn’t hold on his breath further and asked, “When was this decided? Why didn’t I know about this earlier?”
Chu Tenghu said, “Fourth uncle, you’ve not returned home these few days… this decision was made today.”
Chu Feiyan shuddered in rage, saying “It’s the personal property of Chu Yang here, how could the clan intervene? It doesn’t make sense!”
Chu Tenghu smiled, replying “The clan has decided to take back this medical center…”
“F**k!” Chu Feiyan said with rage, “I’ll go back to ask about it.”
“There’s no need… fourth elder!” Chu Feilong walked in with a few accountants and said smilingly, “This is our father’s decision, if you go back to ask now… you’ll only make him angry.”
As he said, he held out the clan’s warrant.
Chu Feiyan felt he had fallen into an ice cave. He retreated two steps, and only felt icy cold over his entire body.
Chu Feilong announced the family decision on the spot: The clan shall take back the medical center as a clan property. Chu Yang shall be the chief doctor of Purple Crystals Huichun Hall and hold on to 20% of the hall’s profits. Chu Tenghu shall be the shopkeeper while Chu Tengjiao, accountant of the hall, and each of them shall hold 5% of the hall’s profits. The remaining 70% would be given back to the clan.
The clan would send another two servants here to be workers, and three old doctors to strengthen the main workforce of the hall.
Such decisions were equivalent to taking the power away from Chu Yang completely! He was not left with any authority and power to make financial decisions.
Chu Feiyan was utterly raged after the announcement was read out. Chu Le’er pursed her lips and didn’t speak a word.
“Chu Yang, did you hear it?” Chu Feilong looked at Chu Yang amiably.
Chu Yang nodded lightly, and smiled openly, “Of course, the clan’s decision is very correct.”
“That is to say, you abide by the clan’s decision?” Chu Feilong couldn’t help to be stunned for a moment.
“Of course. I, Chu Yang, am willing to put in my best efforts for the sake of my clan, let alone giving a medical center to the clan,” Chu Yang said seriously, “Second uncle, after all, my surname is Chu.”
“Very good,” Chu Feilong responded as he felt that he had made his intended blow in midair instead of on Chu Yang. In the face of Chu Yang who was extremely cooperative with him, he felt that he had no place to exercise his strength. An extreme sense of misery was borne within him spontaneously.
In this period of time, Chu Feilong had put in great efforts to investigate the relationship between Chu Yang and the law-enforcement officers. But regardless of what he saw or heard, he didn’t sense anything unusual. Ever since Xiao Yulong’s case was over, the two parties hadn’t contacted with each other.
For the sake of Chu Feilong’s own safety, he still dared not to lay his hands on Chu Yang.
Then, after thinking for a long time, he plotted this scheme: To exploit family power to force Chu Yang! Even if law-enforcement officers intervene in this matter, it would be after all a family matter. As long as Chu Yang was slightly dissatisfied, Chu Feilong could still punish Chu Yang according to their clan rules!
But Chu Yang’s cooperation with him had made all his subsequent plots gone to waste.
Would it be that his only gain was to allow his two sons to grab the shares from Chu Yang’s hands? This made Chu Feilong very discontented.
All along, he had felt that Chu Yang’s presence in the Chu clan was a very huge and hidden hazard to himself! And a huge threat to him too!
“Sure! Then, the future of this medical center would be on all of you!” Chu Feilong said as he laughed and was about to leave.
“Second uncle, please wait,” Chu Yang said calmly.
“What is it?” Chu Feilong was excited.
Is it that this kid is going to talk against me now?
“I only want to ask a question. Now that this medical center is the clan’s property. If that’s the case, who’s the first person in charge here? That means, in the case of which the clan doesn’t interfere with this medical center, who has the final say here, among the three of us?” Chu Yang asked calmly.
Chu Feilong stared at him and didn’t answer for a long time.
While Chu Yang had asked this very calmly, Chu Feilong knew clearly that this was actually a counterattack made by Chu Yang! And this counterattack had made him sunk into a very awkward predicament.
On the first day that Chu Yang woke up, he had dealt Chu Feilong a head-on blow. Chu Feilong’s fear towards Chu Yang exceeded that of any other person in the clan!
If Chu Feilong said that Chu Yang would have the final say, it would be equivalent to giving the clan’s authority to Chu Yang, then, Chu Yang would have plenty of means to retain the purple crystals. This meant that although the medical center was under the clan’s name, it was in fact still Chu Yang’s own medical center. His two sons would not only harvest no benefits but also provoke a whole lot of troubles.
His two sons’ ingeniousness added together was simply incomparable to that of Chu Yang.
If he said that his eldest son, Chu Tenghu would have the final say, Chu Yang would probably create endless troubles for the medical center. If that happened, only the clan master could deal with the troubles.
Chu Yang could evade all his responsibilities with a sentence:
I’m only a doctor, not a boss, and I’m not in charge of that… With it, I could pass away all his bucks.
This was the first time Chu Feilong had felt perplexed.
After being silent for a long time, he finally thought: This case is fine too. I could exercise Tenghu’s ability to undertake responsibilities. If he could fight against Chu Yang and gain some advantages from him, or even, not suffer from great losses, then Tenghu would be really solid by then…
From this aspect, this was actually something good.
Humph, Chu Feiling always holds benevolence in high regard, gives due consideration to the overall situation, and value affection and righteousness. I think that his son won’t lay deadly hands on his brothers… Moreover, I can also help my sons to mastermind…
So he said, “It looks like the clan’s external shops are always managed by shopkeepers.”
Chu Feilong absolutely never thought this sentence that he said almost pushed his two sons into the abyss of everlasting perdition…
Chu Feilong didn’t know that Chu Yang was the King of Hell Chu, and knew nothing about Chu Yang’s past. Furthermore, the passageways of the Nine Heavens were closed, and he had no grounds to inquire about this. If he knew… regardless of how old he was, he would definitely not leave his two sons to this king of hell who could swallow millions of soldiers in a mouthful…
