Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 350 – Trouble at the Association
“The association is in trouble. Come quick!”
Feng Yu looked at the message displayed on his pager and jumped up.
The association is in trouble? What happen? Why did he receive this message? It was only when others were unreachable then they will contact him!
“That student, what are you doing? Why are you standing up during the class? If you have any question, you should just raise your hand.” The lecturer at the podium said.
“Professor Ma, I need leave. I am working part-time at CCTV for this year’s New Year’s Eve program. They are asking me to go over now.” Feng Yu raised his pager and spurted out lies. CCTV was a good excuse to take leave.
Professor Ma looked at Feng Yu. In his desk’s drawer, there were still a few bottles of Maotai given to him by Feng Yu. Since he had received Feng Yu’s gifts, it was not nice for him to reprimand Feng Yu. Furthermore, the excuse given by Feng Yu was valid too. CCTV was the National TV station, and for them to ask Feng Yu for help, it was an honor for the school.
“Hmm…… just go. But you will need to do an assignment for me, and if you did not do it well, I would mark you as absence today.” Yes, I can give him an easy topic and provide him with the answer.
“Thank you, Professor Ma.”
Feng Yu asked his dorm mates to help him bring back his books, and he ran out of the classroom.
When Feng Yu reached the association, he noticed that the office was tranquil. He felt that something was wrong.
Feng Yu entered the office and see that graduate Zhao Liang, who was assigned by the Planning Committee to the station at this office, sitting on a bench. There was a young man wearing denim clothes sitting on the sofa. Behind him, there was a man that looks like his bodyguard.
“Manager Feng, you are finally here.” Zhao Liang immediately ran over to Feng Yu.
“What happened? Who are they?” Feng Yu asked.
When Feng Yu took a closer look at those two men, he almost burst out in laughter.
Although Denim materials were the trend now, this person really doesn’t know how to dress up. He looks like a monkey wearing a cheongsam. He thinks he looks fashionable? He was still wearing a pair of big sunglasses. What’s wrong with him?
Feng Yu understand why Zhao Liang had called him instead of other leaders. This person should be the second generation of some officials. Zhao Liang must be scared of him.
These second generations were only capable of scaring those young graduates. They do not dare to look for those higher officials. Those older generation officials normally have a lot of children. As long as one of them was capable and was able to take over them, they did not care about the rest. This resulted in many useless second generations.
This person was apparently one of those useless second generations. Zhao Liang dare not to look for his higher-ups. So, he called this “come to me if you have any problems” Feng Yu. Of course, he had also informed Master Lu. But Master Lu was still at work. It was harder for him to skip work and easier for Feng Yu to skip class.
“Who the hell are you? Where did you come from?” The second generation took off his sunglasses and…… a bubble came out of his mouth!
Damn. He was still eating bubble gum? Where did he learn this from? Childish! Feng Yu was really looking down at this person.
“I am Feng Yu, one of the founders of this association. How do I address you?”
“I am Hu Ge. My third uncle is the number one Deputy Section Head with the Ministry of Finance.” Hu Ge stopped talking and crossed his legs. Usually, when he said this introduction, the other party will rush over and curry favor.
But he waited for a while and noticed that the room was silenced. What happened? My uncle is a leader at the Ministry of Finance. Why wasn’t this person surprised?
Hu Ge? This person was too young to be that director Hu Ge, and he was not the actor Hu Ge. It must be the same name. Who cares what his name was. He should at least tell me what he was here for. Why was his head tilted upwards? Did he sprain his neck?
Feng Yu looked at Hu Ge as he was looking at a monkey in the zoo: “I am not interested in knowing who your uncle is. This has nothing to do with our association. What are you here for?”
Hu Ge’s eyes opened wide. Damn, who is this kid? How come he dares to talk back at me? My third uncle’s position did not scare him?
“I think you did not hear what I said. My uncle is……”
“I am asking you what are you here for? Why do you keep talking about your uncle? Did your uncle ask you to come?” Feng Yu sarcastically said. This person keeps harping on his background. This shows that he was not someone capable.
It was impossible for this Hu Ge’s uncle to send him here. The officials in this era were not as shameless as those a few years later. Also, the “Great One” was still around, and he hates officials to abuse their powers. The punishments for abusing powers was severe.
Hu Ge was speechless. This Feng Yu had talked back to him again. Could this Feng Yu have some strong background?
Hu Ge thought hard at all the officials he knew did not have the same surname as Feng Yu. Could Feng Yu be a distant relative of some big officials?
Hu Ge’s attitude changed and stood up: “From Manager Feng’s accent, you don’t sound like you are from Beijing. Are you here to stay with your relatives? Where is your relative staying?”
This was the same as asking what Feng Yu’s background was. From the place Feng Yu was staying, Hu Ge could guess who was the one behind Feng Yu.
Hu Ge’s third uncle was the deputy in the Ministry of Finance and oversaw the giving out of the funds. Most of the officials had to give him face. Since this Feng Yu was not afraid of him, that means the person behind Feng Yu must be of a higher rank!
“Me? I am staying next to Weiminghu lake.”
Weiminghu lake? Where was that? Hu Ge thought hard, and there were no government hostels near this place. This place was the manmade lake beside Beijing University.
This Feng Yu’s background is from the Ministry of Education?
Damn. Even if your relative is the head of the Ministry of Education, I am also not afraid. How much power can someone from the Ministry of Education have?
Hu Ge sat down again and crossed his legs: “Oh, you are working at Beijing University? A teacher? Not bad. Work hard. Maybe you will go far.”
When Feng Yu heard what Hu Ge said, he almost laughed. This person was still trying to give him advice?
A teacher? He thought that I am teaching at Beijing University? Although I might look cultured and educated, teaching should be left to those professionals. I should concentrate on making money.
“I am asking you what you are here for?” Feng Yu asked again.
Hu Ge’s face change and banged on the coffee table: “you still dare to question me? I am here to question you! Why is my company not in this award organized by your stupid association!?”
Oh, this was the reason why you are here. Since this Hu Ge’s company was not a participant in this award ceremony, that means his company was lousy!
If he were polite and had spoken nicely, maybe Feng Yu would be nice to him. Now he had banged tables, that means he has zero chances of even becoming a nominee!
