Chapter 520: Intense Stimulation
Tang Guosheng coughed dryly. The old man then wore a wry smile and said, "Grandson, can we discuss something? I gave you that 50 billion in hope that you will use it to develop the Tang Family and to build up the force of our family. This action of yours… it's kind of an extravagant squandering."
Tang Xiu was slightly stunned as he gazed at Tang Guosheng with a strange expression, "Grandpa, are you sure that I was just extravagantly squandering money?"
"Isn't it?" Asked Tang Guosheng back.
Tang Xiu spread his hands and said, "Since you think that I'm just squandering, please listen to what I'm gonna say until the end, would you? Anyhow, I had a private talk with Situ Boyang, the Head of the Situ Family, for a long time after the auction, from which I secured a business deal with him… No, it should three business deals. Take a look at these two text messages on my phone. They are notifications of two transfers that have just arrived into my account, each of which is 2.5 billion, for a total of 5 billion. Added to that, the Situ Family also promised to give me back the 3.1 billion that I spent."
Tang Yunde quickly grabbed his mobile phone and read the text messages, and then immediately gaped with disbelief bursting from his eyes. Although he knew that his son was a man with ability, it was beyond his expectation that his precious son could get such a huge sum of money within just a night.
5 billion plus 3.1 billion, for a total of 8.1 billion!!
He… what kind of business deal did he make, exactly?
Surprised, Tang Guosheng's expression was rather strange. After taking the mobile phone and seeing the two messages, he couldn't help but be jitter despite his unusual status. He fell into silence for half a minute, before he returned the mobile phone to Tang Xiu and asked, "Xiu'er, I just can't believe that a pie would just fall from the sky like that. Tell me, what did you transact with them, exactly?"
"They are people from the Occult Sect, while I happen to have an ability to produce talismans. Hence, they bought a total of 200 talismans from me," said Tang Xiu.
Tang Guosheng's eyes almost jumped out from its sockets. He pointed at Tang Xiu with disbelief and stutteringly asked, "Y-you… y-you're actually able to manufacture talismans? How is this possible? How could someone still know the manufacturing methods for magical talismans in today's age?"
"Grandpa, there's no need for you to make a fuss about such a trivial thing, no? The things I can do are not only limited to manufacturing magical talismans, to be honest. It's just that… I always hid my abilities and bided my time in order to avoid troublesome matters! That's right, that's how I can describe my situation."
Tang Guosheng and Tang Yunde exchanged looks, as the father and son were dumbfounded and speechless upon hearing Tang Xiu's explanation.
What was laying low and acting modestly despite possessing awesome abilities? This was it!
As if recalling something, Tang Xiu patted his own head and smilingly said, "Ah, that's right. I also went to the Situ Family's treasury vault and obtained a few good things there. Also, that golden dragon head is inside my car! Grandpa, do you want it?"
"Golden dragon head?" Tang Guosheng chuckled. "I don't think I have a reason to refuse something obtained by my grandson, do I? Let's go outside. I need to take a breather anyway. Let's see what's this golden dragon head."
"I need to take a breather as well, Father. This boy… he simply makes people sit on a roller coaster and stimulate them to the extreme," said Tang Yunde with a smile.
Quickly, the three generations came to the front yard. Tang Guosheng, who was in a good mood, came to the SUV and watched as Tang Xiu pulled the car's door on. He stretched out his arms in a relaxed manner and didn't hurry to look what was inside the car, and looked up instead. After taking a deep breath, he smilingly said, "The air is so great tonight. I've lived for so many years in Beijing, yet rarely have I seen so many stars in the sky!"
"True that! The smog has been a serious issue in this era of development due to environmental pollution. If this continues to go on, living in the capital will not be a choice; unless we humans can evolve and mutate in this bad environment," said Tang Yunde smilingly.
"Hahaha…" Tang Guosheng laughed loudly and lowered his head to see what was inside the car. His laughter then came to an abrupt halt as the wrinkles on his old face began to solidify in an instant. He continued in this state for a few seconds, as he suddenly stepped forward and swiftly drilled himself into the car near the golden dragon head.
"What a great golden dragon head!"
The exclamation of praise didn't come from Tang Guosheng, but Tang Yunde. His hand was on the door as he praised while looking at the golden dragon head next to his father.
"I don't think it can be counted as good stuff, though. But this golden dragon head could be barely said as one of the coolest things inside the Situ Family's treasury vault aside from the other two items I got," said Tang Xiu with a smile. "So, what do you think, Grandpa? This golden dragon head is entirely cast from pure gold; I'll leave it to you as a decoration if you like it."
Tang Guosheng reluctantly turned his head. It was night, but with the light in the yard and the dim light in the car, it made his expression very discernable not only to Tang Xiu, but also Tang Yunde. He looked at Tang Xiu with his lips twitching. His voice was rough and hoarse as he asked, "Xiu'er, do you know that I had once served as a manager for the state's secret vault in the past?"
"No, I never knew that," said Tang Xiu, shaking his head.
"When I was in working there, I read all the confidential files archived, and one of them was about this golden dragon head. The data was handed down from the Great Tang Dynasty, and was an object that was well preserved and protected. However, this golden dragon head was in the list of lost national treasures in the State Cultural Relic's database. So it's very unexpected that this golden dragon head turned out to have been secretly collected by the Situ Family all this time," explained Tang Guosheng.
"The ancestors of the Situ Family paid a colossal price to get this object, and since it has been in their possession for centuries, it was kind of their private property," said Tang Xiu with a chuckle. "But since it's now in my hands, it means it's now my private property. Grandpa, I'll give this thing to you!"
Tang Guosheng covered his chest, as he wryly smiled and shook his head with a sigh, "Originally, I came out of the room to take a breath and ease my nerves. Not only I did not calm down, I'm even more stimulated. Xiu'er, your ability is really… great. This golden dragon head is something you got, so it's yours. I can't accept it. I dare not accept it."
"Why do you say that, Grandpa?" Asked Tang Xiu.
"This golden dragon head is indeed a great thing. But to our Tang Family, it is nothing but a dead object," sighed Tang Guosheng. "If its existence were to be exposed, not only would it be of no benefit to us, it's highly likely that it will bring us trouble. Those who are eyeing us in the shadows will use something like this as a pretext to justify an attack, thus pushing the Tang Family into a storm of public critic and slander."
Tang Xiu fell into silence for a while, before he slowly nodded and said, "In that case, I'll take it away! Besides, I've already bought an island in the Pacific Ocean, and after the reconstruction has been finished, I'll bring this golden dragon head to the Nine Dragons Island and keep it in the castle there."
Without a shred of hesitation, Tang Guosheng nodded and said, "That would be a good idea. Nevertheless, you must be sure to hide it well before you bring it out, lest others discover it."
"My ability may not be sufficient for other matters, but no one in the world is good as me in hiding things," said Tang Xiu with a smile. "Don't worry! This golden dragon head will never be discovered by anyone, and not even half a word will be exposed to others."
"All right!" Tang Guosheng nodded heavily, letting out a sigh after he got out of the car. "You said that you spent 3.1 billion in that auction. To be honest, I was regretting the decision of giving you that 50 billion, and was not sure whether my decision was careless or not. Who would have thought that not only did you took the 3.1 billion yuan back, you even made an extra 5 billion yuan from it? What's more important is that you even got a treasure like the golden dragon head. That's really great!"
"It's just chancing upon opportunity, to be honest. I happened to have things that the Occult Sect were most in shortage of," said Tang Xiu with a smile.
Tang Guosheng let out a faint smile. Suddenly, as if remembering something, he quickly asked, "Xiu'er, you just said that you obtained three items from the Situ Family's treasury vault. Besides this golden dragon head, what else did you got?"
"They are some antiques. An ancient bronze lamp and a Guanyin vase," said Tang Xiu with a smile.
"My knowledge about antiques is not that deep, though I know that the price of genuine good antiques is very expensive. So far I calculate that you got five great things today, and yet you still got an extra 5 billion yuan… Pretty worthy as the grandson of I, Tang Guosheng. Amazing!" Said Tang Guosheng with a nod.
"Grandpa, if you praise me so exaggeratedly again, I'm afraid I can't stay here much longer," said Tang Xiu.
"Capable is capable, okay? That's not an exaggeration!" Tang Guosheng waved his hand and smiled.
Tang Yunde, who was standing at the side and listening to the conversation between his father and son, had an especially intense satisfaction filling his heart at this moment. This feeling of satisfaction was greater than what he felt during his meteoric rise in the army and after obtaining great military exploits in the past. He realized that the best thing he had ever done was finding himself a good wife and having a good son.
As of now, his body was getting better, and was almost restored to the condition of a normal person's. He believed that as long as he persevered and relentlessly exercised, his constitution would slowly recuperate and even possibly regain its peak condition like in the past.
"Xiu'er, you also know what your mother thinks. She always thought that studying is the only way out in life. Her only wish is that you can enroll in a good university and obtain a good diploma certificate. Since you're already studying at Shanghai University, then continue your studies well there; though you still can do what you must at work, regardless. Besides, learning while still young will give you better results in the future," said Tang Yunde with a smile as he patted Tang Xiu's shoulder.
"Rest assured, Dad! I'll always bear it in mind," said Tang Xiu with a smile.
"Thta's good," said Tang Xiu as he smiled. "Anyways, I heard you have been in a close relationship with many girls recently! Whether you choose to have some fun or have a steady relationship, your mom is still very young and can help you bring up your children."
Chapter 521: Getting Removed from Duty
When the first ray of sunlight rose from the eastern horizon in the early morning of the next day, Tang Xiu had already come out of Tang Family residence. Outside the courtyard, however, Ouyang Lulu, who was donned in a black leather outfit, was already waiting for him leaning on as Humvee, as she faintly smiled at Tang Xiu as he came out of the gate.
"If you were a bit later, I'm afraid I'd have to to abduct you! There's about one and half an hours left to the departure time for the flight route application, you know. I reckon it will be very difficult to get to the airport within this time window, given the nature of traffic jam in the capital," said Ouyang Lulu with a smile.
Tang Xiu creased his brows, as he turned to look at the soldiers standing guard next to the gate and asked, "How long does it take from the subway here to the airport?"
"It's about an hour and a half," answered a soldier standing guard.
Frowning, Tang Xiu then turned to Ouyang Lulu and asked, "Tell me, how can we get to Shanghai Airport ahead of time?"
"Are you asking me?" Ouyang Lulu asked back with a tender smile.
Tang Xiu rolled his eyes at her and snappily said, "Don't give me that look, will you? I'm really in a hurry to return to Shanghai. There is no classes in the morning, but I have classes in the afternoon. If I could arrive earlier in the morning, I'm planning to report to the campus first."
A curved arc outlined on the corner of Ouyang Lulu's mouth, as she took out a bunch of keys while smiling happily, "Come with me! But I'll have to trouble your Tang Family to send this Humvee back to the Situ Family, though!"
Tang Xiu dazed briefly before he gave a glance to the two soldiers standing guard. He then tagged alongside Lulu and walked toward the mouth of the alley. When the two came to the street outside, he saw a very handsome Harley bike.
"You… how did you get this thing?" Murmured Tang Xiu. His expression looked vacant as he watched Lulu mounting the Harley.
"I got that Hummer from the Situ Family, while this Harley is my ride! What do you think? I've always prepared for both eventualities. Not bad, right?"
With a strange expression, Tang Xiu stared at Lulu and snappily said, "Bah, that's because you've planned it beforehand, haven't you? You knew this time was a peak hour, so traffic jam is definitely there, so you prepared this bike, right?"
"It's not like that I want to be in close contact with you, though! You know, aren't those guys always trying to persuade their girls to ride with them, while slamming the brakes to gain extra benefit from time to time?" Ouyang Lulu replied back with a laughter.
Pfft… Tang Xiu couldn't help laughing. He found her argument amusing.
"Hey, don't daze like that, will you? Hurry up! Delay it again and we'll be too late even if we don't get trapped in a traffic jam," said Ouyang Lulu smilingly.
Tang Xiu took a seat behind Lulu. He was a bit hesitant to coil up his hands around her waist, however.
Lulu rolled her eyes, as she then grabbed Tang Xiu's hands and put them on her waist. She then picked up the helmet on the handlebar and put it on Tang Xiu before she put one on herself, and then started to race away.
What a supple body!
Although Lulu was wearing a leather outfit, Tang Xiu's hands were still able to feel the heat coming out of her, as well as its suppleness. After returning to Earth, he had a very intimate body contact with Kang Xia, yet her waist didn't possess the suppleness and elasticity of Lulu's.
"So, honey. Doesn't my waist feel good?" Ouyang Lulu slightly turned her face, yelling while riding the bike.
Tang Xiu was at a loss whether to laugh or cry as he replied, "What is this good fart? Just drive well and don't fill your brain with dirty thoughts, will you?"
At 10:30 in the morning, the private jet landed at Shanghai Airport.
Tang Xiu got out of the plane with Ouyang Lulu. Under her adamant request, Tang Xiu had to take her with him to Shanghai University, and even had no choice but to promise to accompany her to lunch under her tight clinging and demand.
After the taxi stopped at the entrance of Shanghai University, Tang Xiu gave his Bluestar Villa Complex's key to Lulu as he rushed to the campus.
When he came to the classroom, he found that that only a few people were inside the classroom. There were only dozens of people gathered together, talking about some interesting things that happened during the holidays.
"Oh, Eldest Bro Tang is finally here!"
Hu Qingsong's thick northeast accent greeted Tang Xiu.
All of a sudden, the dozens of fellow students in the classroom set their eyes on Tang Xiu. There were strange expressions on their faces, and one could figure out in a glance that there was surely a story behind it.
Tang Xiu smilingly greeted everyone, as he came to them and took a seat next to Hu Qingsong. With curiosity hanging on his face, he asked, "Why do I feel like everyone is looking at me strangely, like something has gone wrong? What happened?"
"It's just that we run an election for class leaders in the morning. You've just been removed from your duty as the class president, and I'm now being set up as the class president. Also, Teacher Han has personally named you as a rotten apple who has a negative influence or something. She's hoping that everyone won't take you as an example."
"Huh?" Tang Xiu frowned. "What is wrong with me?"
Hu Qingsong raised his fingers, "I'll tell you! Firstly, you always skip classes. Isn't that right? Secondly, you are an irresponsible prick. You're a class president, yet you don't fulfill your duties as one. Am I speaking correctly here? Thirdly, you don't abide by the discipline in the classroom and leave without permission during class hours, isn't that right? Fourthly…"
"Stop, stop, stop!"
With an expression of being at a loss whether to laugh or cry, Tang Xiu stared at Hu Qingsong as a sliver of resentment rose inside his heart toward Han Qingwu. This was something that happened to him after he went to her class back in high school! Now that it was being mentioned up again, this was clearly abusing her position and authority to redress her private grievances.
Nevertheless, it was true that these issues did exist. It seemed that he really didn't deserve to become a student; he skipped classes way too much.
As he silently chanted her name inwardly, Tang Xiu finally decided that he would try to not supply Han Qingwu with such predicament in the future again. It was said that one had to lower their head under the eaves. If he wanted to have a smooth sailing life at Shanghai University, he mustn't make mistakes, and compromise with her was a must.
The district magistrate surely won't be this good, huh?! Her arguments are too fucking reasonable and justified!
Tang Xiu could only groan inwardly, as he pressed hard on Hu Qingsong's shoulder and asked, "Anyways, where is Yue Kai and the rest? How can you guys be left in the classroom?"
"Where else will they go but chase chicks? Since they have shifted their targets from Mu Wanying, they have set their eyes on other female students. Those damn studs will die on a women's belly sooner or later." Hu Qingsong pouted his lips and snappily replied.
"Eh? Why do I feel like there's a sour and edgy taste from your tone? Ah, don't tell me you haven't found your target yet?" Asked Tang Xiu who was feeling amused to tears.
"Who the hell says I haven't found a target yet? I like…" Hu Qingsong angrily rebuked. Yet his words abruptly came to a halt, as the angry expression on his face also froze in an instant.
Tang Xiu loudly laughed, as he got up and said, "Anyways, since we have nothing to do this morning, let's just leave! All of them are on a date or something, then the two us are bound by fate. Come on, I'll treat you for lunch."
Hu Qingsong's eyes lit up, as he got up while grinning and said, "I'll just say it! The good heavens are not better than you, Eldest Bro Tang! How about I marry you, Brother? Rest assured, though! You don't need to put jewelry on me, nor wear your gold and silver accessories. You just need to feed me every day, and I'm yours to pet!"
"GO TO HELL!" Tang Xiu cursed at him.
As the duo left the classroom and walked toward the campus entrance, Hu Qingsong looked confused as he asked, "Ugh, Eldest Bro Tang, treating me to lunch doesn't need to be so extravagant, no? Why are we going outside?"
"Oh, you don't want to, then?" Tang Xiu smilingly said. "Anyhow, there's someone else who will be joining us for lunch."
"Ehh? Who is it?" Asked Hu Qingsong, confused.
"A friend of mine," answered Tang Xiu.
"Is it a man, or a woman?" Asked Hu Qingsong again, startled.
"A woman!" Replied Tang Xiu with a smile.
"How does she look?" Asked Hu Qingsong with eyes lit up.
"She's like a beautiful flower, ravishingly enchanting and charming," said Tang Xiu with a smile again.
"Eldest Bro Tang, I knew you'd treat your brother the best!" Hu Qingsong grinned and smilingly said. "This is exactly my favorite type! Okay, let's have a deal. You must treat me to a feast if I were to successfully woo her."
"Okay, I'll throw you a party if you are able to woo her," said Tang Xiu while rolling his eyes at him.
Hu Qingsong stared blankly and the smile on his face immediately vanished as he said, "Are you trying to prank me, Eldest Bro Tang? I knew it! That woman's looks must be very ugly, or else you wouldn't push her to me, right? Bah, forget it, just keep her for yourself!"
While shaking his head, Tang Xiu laughed despite not wanting to, and patted his shoulder. Since it was still early in the morning, they didn't ride a car, and headed straight to Bluestar Villa Complex on foot. After arriving at his villa, Tang Xiu rang the doorbell. The electric front courtyard gate opened, as Ouyang Lulu's ravishing figure appeared at the door of the villa.
"Big Bro, isn't this your own home? Why did you press the bell…" Hu Qingsong, who followed behind Tang Xiu into the courtyard, abruptly stopped talking as he saw Ouyang Lulu's figure. He instantly gaped, his eyeball almost popping out.
"What's wrong? Is this level really unable to enter your eyes?" Asked Tang Xiu with a laugh.
Hu Qingsong gulped his saliva and shook his head as he muttered, "She's in! Definitely! If I marry such a beauty, I'm even willing to have my lifespan cut by 30 years!"
"Hahaha…" This time, it was Tang Xiu's turn to burst into laughter.
Snapping back to reality by Tang Xiu's loud laughter, Hu Qingsong looked awkward and embarrassed, not daring to look at Ouyang Lulu again.
"Anyways, Lulu. This is Hu Qingsong, my classmate," said Tang Xiu smilingly.
The corner of Ouyang Lulu's mouth curved after hearing Hu Qingsong's muttering. She let out a charming smile as she stretched out her hand and said, "Hi, I'm Ouyang Lulu. I welcome you to our home. Anyways, I'm afraid that I can't marry you. This girl has already been taken by the one next to you. But I can introduce to a girl friend of mine with one condition… That is, you need to have abilities like my man here."
She said she has already been taken?
Hu Qingsong fell into a daze as he turned his head and stared at Tang Xiu in disbelief.
