Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Being an unknown face, and in addition to his simple and low budget clothing, Ye Lingchen drew slight frowns from quite a few people in the hall.
Immediately, whispers could be heard.
“Who is he? Could he be a distant relative of Xiao Feifei?”
“This fellow is dressed so shabbily, he couldn’t be some bigshot in disguise?”
“From the looks of it Director Li and Xiao Feifei are very close to him, but I don’t know where he came from.”
Ye Lingchen’s name was never spread around, and every time he had been featured in a scene he was wearing a mask. Therefore, not many people would recognize him.
A portion of those curious immediately went and asked Wu Feng, who had been around the most.
“You no longer need to guess, that boy’s just a loser!” Wu Feng laughed coldly.
“What? That can’t be?”
“What can’t be?” Wu Feng’s voice was very vicious, “He used to just be a staffer in my crew until I kicked him out! I don’t even know what tricks he used to latch on to Xiao Feifei.”
“F*ck me, a poor loser like him at the main table, isn’t that just a joke?”
“You’re right, he doesn’t deserve to sit there!”
Wu Feng’s eyes glimmered, and he stood and strode over to Ye Lingchen.
“Dog, this isn’t your place to sit, get out!”
The entire hall went silent, and everyone stared.
Xiao Feifei’s face darkened, and she spoke coldly, “Wu Feng, what are you doing? He’s my honored guest!”
“Honored guest? What is he worth? How is he honored? He’s not even worth my dog at home!” Wu Feng spoke arrogantly, insulting Ye Lingchen.
“Wu Feng, stop making a scene here. Get lost!” said Xiao Feifei in anger.
“Xiao Feifei, don’t forget that you’re the woman that Young Master Lu admires. For you to have a leech like him by your side, be wary that you might die without even knowing it!”
Wu Feng laughed coldly, and looked derisively at Xiao Feifei, “Have you been a star for too long, that your tastes have changed? How could you look up to this piece of sh*t?”
His words immediately caused waves, and everyone looked at Xiao Feifei incredulously.
Wu Feng had committed a great faux pas.
“Shut up!” Xiao Feifei’s face was contorted in her anger, “Lu Hao is Lu Hao, and I am me, we don’t have any relationship! Ye Lingchen and I are just friends.”
“Haha, would you dare to say this in front of the Young Master Lu?”
Wu Feng smirked as he looked at Ye Lingchen with a piercing, cold glare, “You dog, you don’t have money, connections, or power. You’re worse than trash, and you dare to come and show off in my territory? Get out!”
Beneath the gaze of the crowd, Ye Lingchen sat there blankly, before slowly spitting out one sentence-
In a blink of an eye, the atmosphere turned ice cold.
“D*mn, that loser’s gone mad! Who does he think he is?”
“This leech can’t possibly be willing to do anything to stick to Xiao Feifei?”
“How could Xiao Feifei look up to him? It’s really a tale of beauty and the beast!”
“You’re asking for it!”
Wu Feng’s expression was extremely vicious, and he picked up a wine bottle from the table then swung it at Ye Lingchen’s head!
He knew that Ye Lingchen could feel fear, but even the best fighter could not take a blow to the head!
Everything was as he planned, he had no fear in his heart!
His face was wild, as though he could already see the image of Ye Lingchen’s head being split open.
However, as fast as he was, Ye Lingchen was faster!
It seemed as though at the moment that Wu Feng had picked up the bottle, Ye Lingchen’s fists were already flying!
His fists were too fast to follow, a simple punch looked as though it had been practiced countless times, that all the crowd could see was a flash.
Wu Feng, who had made the first move, could only feel a strong rush of wind coming at him, nearly making him breathless.
The next moment, the fist had already connected with Wu Feng’s chin!
As the punch connected, Wu Feng’s head jerked upwards, his eyeballs nearly popping out of his head. His large body flew upwards like a rocket.
Blood spewed out from his mouth!
Quite a few teeth could also be seen flying through the air.
As his body landed heavily on the ground, the entire hall was dead silent.
Slowly, they stared at Ye Lingchen, their eyes wide!
With one punch a 1.9m muscular man had been sent flying, the power of that punch was shocking.
“Ah… my teeth, you dog! You’re dead! I will make your life a living hell!”
Wu Feng’s mouth was full of blood, and his mouth was disfigured. Half of his teeth were missing, and he spoke unclearly.
Tap, tap, tap!
At the same time, outside the door, footsteps could be heard.
A garishly dressed young man in his twenties strode towards them.
His every step was full of energy, before he had arrived, the sound of his footsteps already turned heads.
The young man strutted, and while it wasn’t charisma, his face carried an air of superiority.
Behind the young man was a Southeast Asian and a European, their faces were threatening. It gave one a feeling of danger, and one could tell that they were hostile.
“What’s going on here?”
The young man frowned, an air of authority emanating from him. It was as though the king had arrived and inspected the plebs.
“Young Master Lu, Young Master Lu, you’re finally here!”
Wu Feng looked as though he had seen his savior, and crawled over to him like a dog.
Pointing at Ye Lingchen, he wailed, “Young Master Lu, you have to stick up for me! That leech, I don’t know what his relationship is with Xiao Feifei, I wanted to kick him out, but he beat me up!”
“Oh my god, it’s Young Master Lu, I didn’t think he’d show up today.”
“I should have known, Young Master Lu had always seen Xiao Feifei as his own, how would he not show up today.”
“I did not think I’d get to see one of the rich heirs of Capital City in the flesh today.”
“He is truly an heir of a rich family, people like us are like dog sh*t to these upper society types.”
Everybody, regardless of gender or age, all looked at the Young Master Lu with envy.
They could never dream of having his privilege, but if they just spent a little, it would be enough to knock an ordinary person off their feet.
Xiao Feifei trembled, and her palms turned wet with sweat, as she worried for Ye Lingchen’s safety.
“Feifei, you disappoint me so. I thought you’d at least find me a love rival that would be my match, he doesn’t even have the right to look at me.”
Lu Hao was like the brightest star in the night sky, able to attract the attention of the masses.
Those words carried an air of superiority cultivated since birth to be used on others.
Everybody looked as though this were natural, nobody thought that Lu Hao was showing off.
He wasn’t pretending, he just was that much better!
When you had reached the position of Young Master Lu, you’d never need to boast. Even a simple sentence would be full of swagger and be able to impress the people around you.
