Chapter 925: Just Compensate Him With Money Then!

The researchers were beyond horrified, “Ah? No, Mr. Xu, you can’t do that! I….”
Before they could finish, the large group of Rothschild bodyguards stepped up and surrounded them. Every single bodyguard had a small, pink nail clipper in their hands. They covered the researchers’ mouths and stabbed the nail clippers into their bodies!
The whole process was, of course, relayed to the entire world via cameras. Everyone was stunned. To think that a powerhouse like Xu Que would resort to such petty tricks!
What happened to his declaration that they could count on his pure character?
What happened to his motto to lead an upright and just life?
Did he actually mean that he wanted to be shameless in an aboveboard manner?
A Huaxia netizen expressed it this way: “Crap, the way he plays it is so shameless! I admit defeat!”
“I admit defeat too!”
“Everyone, I can’t take it anymore. Right here, right now, I want to say something on behalf of the millions of viewers here!”
“What do you want to say?”
“The Exploding Heavens Faction is awesome!”
At the same time, Xu Que was putting a hand on Xu Feifei’s shoulder. He smiled slightly, “Feifei, stop looking around. Let’s go in and meet Mr. Levan to discuss psychological damage compensation matters!”
Psychological damage compensation? Levan shivered at those words, especially after witnessing what had happened to the researchers. His heart was filled with unease. Heaven knew how much Xu Que would want to extort from him for psychological damages!
Xu Feifei did not react at all. All she wanted was for those people to apologize, and she would let it go. However, she did not expect Xu Que to order the guards to charge in with nail clippers and kill the researchers torturously. The researchers seemed to have suffered a more gruesome death than those previously reduced to ashes with a ball of fire.
“Brother, why don’t we leave it at that?” Xu Feifei blurted out. She was still not used to this sudden rise in status. She had started as a nobody and climbed to her current place, but was still just an insignificant speck in the world. Deep down, she still believed that they shouldn’t get into more trouble if they could help it.
The same, however, could not be said for Xu Que. Having experienced many killings and massacres in the world of cultivation, Xu Que knew that some fear and power could only be established through spilling blood. The chilling revenge you exact on one enemy today might extinguish 100 enemies in your future. Now that the whole world was watching, Xu Que immediately decided that it was the perfect chance to build his reputation and also act tough!
“We can’t leave it! Those who have bullied you, I would never let them off! Moreover, even if I agree to let them go, your sister-in-law wouldn’t agree. Right, Hongyan?” Xu Que smiled as he turned to look at Jiang Hongyan.
Jiang Hongyan smiled slightly and shook her head resignedly. It looked like Xu Que was going to use her to change the topic. And Xu Que succeeded.
Xu Feifei was already astounded when she had first seen Jiang Hongyan. She had seen TV news reports about Jiang Hongyan when she was held captive – a traditionally dressed, fairy-like beauty on the moon, with an air of elegance and ultimate perfection.
She never thought that such a woman would become her sister-in-law! The jerk Xu Que was this lucky?
She stared at Xu Que in total surprise, then she turned to Jiang Hongyan. In the end, she said, “Fairy sister-in-law!”
Jiang Hongyan smiled and shook her head, “My name is Jiang Hongyan, not Fairy.”
As she said that, she raised her hand, and a mauve jade necklace suddenly appeared in her palm. The crystalline jade shone brilliantly and was full of Spiritual Qi. It slowly rose from her palm.
“Feifei, this is a protection charm necklace. It can also cleanse your tendons and rinse your blood vessels.” As she said that, the mauve jade necklace stopped in front of Xu Feifei. Xu Feifei stood stunned in disbelief. Not only was she shocked by the power displayed by Jiang Hongyan, but the beautiful mauve jade necklace had also stolen all of her attention. As a mortal, she had never seen a mauve jade this beautiful. While she was no expert, she could tell with one look that this mauve jade necklace would be a priceless gem on Earth.
“No, no, I can’t take something this precious!” Xu Feifei hurriedly shook her head. While she genuinely liked the necklace, the value of the jewelry had far surpassed any ordinary greeting gifts.
“Feifei, there’s no need to worry. Accept it! Your sister-in-law is family, and there’s no need to stand on ceremony.” Xu Que smiled and put that necklace directly around Xu Feifei’s neck. This necklace was indeed quite precious. Not only would it work as a protective charm; more important, it could cleanse Xu Feifei’s tendons and rinse her blood vessels. It was far more effective than those regular vessel-rinsing pills.
Jiang Hongyan knew that Xu Que would definitely want to bring Xu Feifei to the world of cultivation. By then, Xu Feifei would inevitably start to cultivate. For that, the rinsing and cleansing of tendons and blood vessels are the most crucial first steps. She would need a solid foundation. That’s why this was the perfect necklace for Xu Feifei.
The moment the necklace was put on her, Xu Feifei immediately felt a cooling sense wash over her body, and she was filled with a sense of comfort from head to toe. It swept away all of her fatigue, and she quickly became energized, like she had an inexhaustible pool of energy.
She instantly turned to Jiang Hongyan and smiled sweetly, “Thank you, Sister Hongyan!”
“Call her sister-in-law!”
Xu Feifei pouted, “I won’t! Sister Hongyan is so beautiful. If I call her sister-in-law, won’t it make her sound old? Don’t you agree, Sister Hongyan?”
Xu Feifei skipped up to Jiang Hongyan and took up her hand, apparently very comfortable with her. It was evident that she was 100 percent satisfied with her sister-in-law and even felt that her brother did not deserve Jiang Hongyan. It was like a flower planted in cow dung, but since that dung was her brother, she had to quickly please the flower so that she wouldn’t run away.
“You may call me whatever you want to!” Jiang Hongyan smiled. At her status and age, an energetic, cute, and well-mannered girl like Xu Feifei was a pleasure to have around.
In the end, the few people left returned to the villa. Levan’s head hung low as he headed back, jittery throughout the whole journey. This time, there were no more bodyguards following him. Everyone knew that no number of bodyguards could stop a person as powerful as Xu Que.
The support army sent by the M Nation shared the same sentiment. They stood outside the villa and stared blankly at each other, and no one dared to get close in fear of angering that matchless powerhouse.
In the Huaxia capital, the Xia Family’s home atmosphere was stifling. They understood just how powerful Xu Que was from TV, and were well aware that there was an impending disaster coming their way. Big or small, all power members of the clan rushed back for an urgent meeting.
“Spill it, what’s this all about?” The head of the Xia Family was nearing 80 years old. With his 80-year-old celebration around the corner, little did he know that his eldest grandson would bring this serious bit of trouble back to their clan. Xia Luoqing had caught wind of the situation and was on his way home, with a terrible expression on his face. He had been summoned to train in the army for the past few years and intended to venture into politics once he had climbed up the ranks – to think that such a huge trouble would come knocking on his door.
In fact, he couldn’t recall who Xu Que was in the beginning. He was even confused when he first saw his photo. It was not that he was forgetful. It was that he had harmed so many more, and Xu Que was simply one of them. Too many nobodies with no money or power had died under a single order of his. He believed that whatever he wanted, he would get. A mere human life was nothing in his eyes.
However, he then heard the name of the school beauty, Lin Yuxi, from his cousin Xia Yunhai. Xia Luoqing then slowly remembered that he seemed to have ordered his underlings to kill Lin Yuxi’s boyfriend. It was just that when the deed was done, he was called to the army before he could make a move on Lin Yuxi. He never imagined that the man who was supposed to be dead years ago would return as an Immortal.
It was a fact he could not swallow. Now that he was sitting at home, in front of the many gazes of his elders, he had thought of a way to wriggle out of this.
“Grandpa, this…this has got nothing to do with me! Back then, he was the one who tried to steal my girlfriend. The people beneath me couldn’t stand his doings and killed him without consulting me. I only knew about that afterward.” Xia Luoqing said innocently.
A middle-aged woman standing on the sidelines held Xia Luoqing’s hand in hers and turned to the head of the Xia family, “Father, you have watched Luoqing grow up into a young man. He is the future of the Xia Family! Even if he did commit a small mistake, there’s no need to hand him over! That Xu Que keeps calling for revenge, but, after all, he just wants compensation. Let’s just compensate him with money then!
