Chapter 88 I will let you drink enough
Because of Zhao Kan, Qin Lang gave face to Zhao Hongfang, but he had no reason to give face to Ma Hongliang.
Ma Hongliang was aloof and insufferably arrogant in front of Zhao Hongfang and others, but in Qin Lang’s eyes, he was not even worth a fart!
Ma Hongliang was used to being indulged by others, when would he have thought a student would unexpectedly not give him any face at all. He was immediately angered: “Brat, if you were not old Zhao’s son’s classmate, I would ——”
“Qin bro—— finally found you!”
Right at this time, someone pushed in through the private room’s door. Han San Qiang was hastily charging in and a middle aged person, wearing suit, who looked like a businessman, was following behind. After entering, Han San Qiang’s gaze landed on Ma Hongliang’s body, and indifferently said, “Little Ma, you are also having a dinner.”
Due to Han San Qiang’s sudden appearance, Ma Hongliang’s belly-full of anger suddenly disappeared, and replacing it was alarm. Just before, Han San Qiang had called Qin Lang ‘Qin bro’, this made Ma Hongliang’s soul fade away.
Although Ma Hongliang had some underground background, he was at best, a henchman in front of Han San Qiang. He knew Han San Qiang had now possessed the majority of the southern and the eastern area of Xiayang city, that meant he was one of the very top characters of the city. But, such a person was respectfully calling Qin Lang, a student as ‘Qin bro’. How could such a person not have terrifying status, what kind of person was this boy?
What was more frightening was Ma Hongliang had just provoked him!
Seeing Han San Qiang, Zhao Hongfang requested the other several guests to quickly stand up. All these people were businessmen at Xiayang city, and as long as their ears had no problem, they definitely knew what kind of person, Han San Qiang was.
Ma Hongliang also stood up, trembling with fear, and asked Han San Qiang: “Brother Qiang, who is this brother Qin?”
“Why are you asking that!?” Han San Qiang snorted, “In short, if you see Qin bro in the future, regard him as my big brother!”
Ma Hongliang really felt like dying when he heard Han San Qiang’s reply.
Han San Qiang’s reply, undoubtedly, confirmed that Qin Lang’s influence was not small. Just before, Ma Hongliang had tried to threaten him to drink wine as an apology, wasn’t this pulling a tiger’s tail? —— courting death!
“Qin…...brother Qin…..please be magnanimous! Please forget about the previous matter.”
Ma Hongliang was an experienced person, he knew when to bow and submit. Rather than make Qin Lang hate him and find him trouble in the future, it would be better to promptly acknowledge his mistake and perhaps, he might not suffer too much.
“What!? You dared to provoke Qin bro!? F*ck your ancestors, are you tired of living!?”
Han San Qiang’s expression changed much faster than a turning of page; he immediately became furious when he heard Ma Hongliang had offended Qin Lang. Ma Hongliang wasn’t one of his people at all, but giving face when they came across each other was the norm. Han San Qiang also only greeted him, there was not any friendship between them. One could also say that as long as Qin Lang gave the word, Han San Qiang would immediately handle Ma Hongliang.
“Brother Qiang! My …… my dog eyes were blind, I didn’t recognize brother Qin, otherwise even if I had enormous guts, I wouldn’t have dared to offend brother Qin.” Ma Hongliang bitterly explained. Despite having some background at Xiayang city, he would have no footing so long as Han San Qiang gave the word!
“Forget it ….. Ah’Qiang, why are you spending so much time speaking nonsense with him?” Qin Lang turned to Ma Hongliang and said, “You like to drink white wine, right? Drink that bottle of wine and this matter will be in the past.”
“Okay, many thanks, brother Qin.” Ma Hongliang felt like he had received an amnesty. From Qin Lang’s words, as long as he drank this bottle of wine, Qin Lang and Han San Qiang wouldn’t find him any trouble. So, Ma Hongliang didn’t speak any more and immediately started drinking the wine bottle. Even though this way of drinking would surely harm his stomach, it was better than having his body be injured. Ma Hongliang knew of the conduct of people of the underground path; today, he had offended Han San Qiang’s ‘big brother’, it was pretty good that his body wasn’t divided into ‘small parts’.
“I am sorry, uncle Zhao, I have disturbed your dinner party. Let me pay the bill for this meal.” Qin Lang smilingly said towards Zhao Hongfang, giving face to him.
“It’s alright …… there is no need for that.” Zhao Hongfang promptly declined, “I will pay the bills for the two tables!”
“Gentlemen, you both don’t have to argue over this, our restaurant will take care of this meal.” The middle-aged businessman who had followed behind Han San Qiang spoke up, then he stretched his hands to greet Qin Lang, “Your humble servant, Yu Chengming is this small store’s boss. I ask sir Qin to take care of us in the future.”
Yu Chengming was particularly involved in food and beverages, a businessman in hotel industry and had some reputation at Xiayang city. Although Yi Pin Tang restaurant was opened up by Yu Chengming, this place was hired from Han San Qiang, however. When Yu Chengming learned Qin Lang was Han San Qiang’s ‘big brother’, he couldn’t help being shocked, but he was a man who was accustomed to seeing waves and winds. He wouldn’t underestimate Qin Lang just because the latter was only a high school student. In Yu Chengming’s view, someone who could make Han San Qiang willingly become the younger brother, was definitely not an ordinary person. Let alone a senior high school student, even if he was a junior high school student, he must be given enough respect.
“Manager Yu, that isn’t good.” Qin Lang promptly declined, he inwardly praised this Yu Chengming’s behavior. If they were to be compared, Ma Hongliang’s moral quality would have too much of a difference, becoming pretentious just by relying on some money and connection, it was disgusting.
“Mister Qin, this is your first visit, you must let me be the host. That’s right, this is the store’s Platinum VIP card, please accept it and come visit us to eat with friends.” Yu Chengming took out a VIP card and gave to Qin Lang. Additionally, he felt he had to show consideration to Zhao Hongfang, so he gave a VIP card to him too. Only, the discount amount fell short of Qin Lang’s Platinum VIP card.
Ma Hongliang put the empty wine bottle on the table and then said to Qin Lang and Han San Qiang: “Brother Qin, brother Qiang …… I will take my leave first.”
“Walk slowly.” Qin Lang indicated that Ma Hongliang could leave.
Ma Hongliang felt like he had received an amnesty. Right now, there was already an overwhelming flood in his stomach, if it was not for his strong self endurance, there would probably be a ‘live broadcast’ in front of everyone. After coming out of the private room, Ma Hongliang immediately hurried towards the toilet.
“Uncle Zhao, I apologize for disturbing your appetite.” Qin Lang said apologetically before he left the room.
“It’s alright ….. There is absolutely no problem.” Zhao Hongfang promptly said. There was not much friendship between him and Ma Hongliang, he invited the latter to dinner, only to make connection with someone high up in society. Now, he knew Qin Lang had such background, so there was no need for him to painstakingly make friends with a person like Ma Hongliang.
“Alright, old Zhao!” After Qin Lang and others left the private room, one of Zhao Hongfang’s friend enviously said, “Your son is really amazing, he actually has such a good relation with people like brother Qiang. Brother, you really are not sincere, if I knew you had such connections, why would I have gone to look for Ma Hongliang for the previous event?”
“Exactly! I can see your son has boundless prospects in the future!” Another guest parroted.
Feeling his friends’ praises and the change in their attitude, Zhao Hongfang felt very happy. He was truly happy with today’s dinner events.
