It was Zi Qiang who was dumbfounded at this moment. Although he did not know what he meant, he considered Zi Long as a steady man, whose words would give him cause to reflect on them.
“Money is valuable provided that we’re alive. Instead of staying here, we’d better follow Han, which will be much safer. What’s more, since we offended the Lv family, giving up some property before leaving is also a good choice for us.” Zi Long said slowly.
He gave an indeed pertinent suggestion.
Lv Kong was not a good man, so he was not willing to accept the decision that the Zi Clan made to give up a lot of their property and leave.
However, he made a prompt decision when he heard about the Heavenly Knights Sect and its opponent, namely the Wind Snow School. They would not be worried if Zhang Guangyou was an ordinary disciple of the Heavenly Knights Sect, but he was obviously not. Besides, Zhang Han and Zi Yan planned to hold a wedding ceremony. In this way, everyone would learn about the affairs of the Zi Clan.
“You may as well discuss this with your clansmen.” Zhang Guangyou smiled and said, “Even if you’re about to leave, you have to leave in fine style.”
After saying that, Zhang Guangyou began to talk about domestic trivialities as more and more people at the table joined the chat. Rong Jiali, Rong Jiaxin, Xu Xinyu and Dong Ling had great fun, while Zi Shiya, Zi Yan, Zhou Fei and Zhang Li had a great time chatting with each other.
As for Zhang Han, he was focused on picking choice pieces of food for Mengmeng, while chatting with her in a low voice.
With the liquor being drunk in large quantities, everyone at the table were in high spirits and the pressure brought by the Lv family soon dissipated.
Zi Long’s and Zi Hu’s faces turned red as well.
They looked really excited.
“Damn it! The Heavenly Knights Sect is so powerful that the Lv family definitely fails to hold a candle to it!”
Their moods lightened, but some of the others were clearly not happy.
Meanwhile, more than a dozen people laid down in the yard of the Lv family’s residence in the downtown area of the Eastern District.
In front of these men were many martial artists from the Lv family and the patriarch’s face was a ghastly shade of pale!
“Patriarch, we should not tolerate their provocation at this time. They actually dare to take action since our elder has just returned after making a breakthrough. They are ignoring the majesty of our elder.”
“I think so. In fact, if Zi Qiang abdicates his position in the chamber of Commerce, the Zi Clan will gain handsome assets even though they may be reduced by half. However, they were so greedy that they did not intend to give in and even hurt our clansmen. I’m afraid that we will be a laughing stock if we don’t take any action!”
“How could we simply allow these people who are of no consequence to slander us?”
Hearing what they said, Patriarch Lv looked on calmly and said slowly, “I won’t leave the matter at that. Prepare a car now. I’m going to the old house and ask my third uncle for help!”
Patriarch Lv’s words inspired all the people of the family.
Lv Kong, the patriarch’s third uncle, was a Heaven State Strong. They were all aware that the family’s supremacy would be felt throughout the whole world soon.
Therefore, many people of the Lv family began to take action.
They were convinced that the Zi Clan was doomed even if Zhang Hanyang and his men gave a hand.
Neither Zhang Hanyang nor Emperor Qing could bear comparison with a Heaven State Strong, who could kill them easily.
This group of people had been waiting to celebrate. However, they never imagined that out of the group of people they sent, only one came back safe and sound, while the rest were seriously injured, which completely stunned them.
In the restaurant in the Zi Clan’s mansion…
Zi Qiang was sozzled as his face turned red a few moments later.
He stood up unsteadily, raised his glass that contained some liquor and said with a smile,
“Hic, I’ve got news for you. My daughter, Zi Yan, is going to get married. Hic, the ceremony is on…”
He could not remember the specific date at this point, so he looked at Xu Xinyu seated beside him.
She reminded him with resignation.
“Oh, that’s right. It is on September 9th, which means their love will last forever. It will be held in Hong Kong. Ah, my daughter is going to hold a wedding in Hong Kong. Let’s propose a toast.”
Zi Qiang drained the last dregs of his liquor while speaking.
Then he staggered and finally collapsed on the chair.
“Ouch, in-law, stop drinking liquor and take some tea now.” Zhang Guangyou hurriedly stretched out his right hand to support him.
“I am not drunk. Drinking tea is impolite. We’ll be family in the future. Brother Zhang, this is the first time you are here, so I must do the honors. Come on, pour liquor for me.”
Zi Qiang glanced at Xu Xinyu.
Xu Xinyu rolled her eyes at him, picked up the teapot and poured a cup of tea for him.
“Eh?” Zi Qiang sized his glass up in a daze, “This is not liquor.”
“Oh, come on, in-law, let’s drink some more.”
Zi Qiang raised his glass.
Zhang Guangyou, Gai Xingkong, Zi Long and Zi Hu also drank a glass of liquor.
There were about 20 to 30 empty bottles on the table.
As for Zhang Guangyou and the other men, they looked unperturbed, except for having a slight headache. Actually, they could run their spiritual force to expel the effects of the wine if they wanted to.
But they did not do that. Instead, they enjoyed the happiness brought on by the alcohol.
Since that Zi Qiang was drunk and about to fall asleep after finishing a cup of tea. Zi Yan pursed her lips and looked at Zhang Han.
“Erm… Why don’t I take father-in-law to have a rest?” Zhang Han suggested.
“I will do it.”
When he heard what he said, Zi Hu stood up and helped Zi Qiang back to the villa.
Then… it was Zi Shiya’s father’s turn to drink with them.
He truly knew his limit and stopped drinking after having some beer.
Accompanied by Zi Long and some members of the Zi Clan, Zhang Guangyou and the other masters drank to their hearts’ content.
As for Wang Xiaowu, he exchanged a few words with Zhang Guangyou after having a meal and then left in a hurry.
“PaPa, I’m full.” Sitting between Zhang Han and Zi Yan, Mengmeng looked up at Zhang Han and said this several minutes after she finished eating.
“Would you like to go out to play?” Zhang Han asked with a smile.
“Great!” Mengmeng responded with a giggle.
Zhang Han’s suggestion fitted in exactly with her wish.
“Let’s go!” Zhang Han stood up and took Mengmeng’s little hand.
After jumping down from the chair, Mengmeng held Zi Yan’s hand and said, “MaMa, we’re going to play.”
“Yes.” Zi Yan nodded slightly.
“I’ll go with you.” Zi Shiya had been waiting for them for a long time and could not sit still anymore.
“Shall we also take a stroll?” Zhou Fei looked at Zhang Li.
So, all the young people present went out and wandered around the Manor of the Zi Clan.
Zhao Feng followed them, fiddled with his mobile phone for a few minutes and then said with a grin,
“Erm, Mengqi and her brother are coming.”
“Okay.” Zhang Li pursed her lips and replied.
In fact, she was already aware of this.
She had been very anxious since she came out of the restaurant.
“Will my dad tear Liang Hao apart?”
She was so scared.
Zhang Li was still worried after thinking for a while, so she glanced at Zhang Han and said, “Ahem, brother?”
“What?” Zhang Han pretended not to understand her intention.
“Brother?” Zhang Li called Zhang Han again.
“What’s the matter?” Zhang Han answered with a smile.
“You’re playing dumb!”
“No, I’m not.”
“Didn’t you hear what Zhao Feng said?”
“You are not aware yet?”
“What do you mean?”
Zi Yan burst out laughing after hearing what they said. She stared at Zhang Han with her beautiful eyes and said, “Well, stop joking. Lili, I’ll put in a good word for you when he comes.”
“It’s none of my business.” Zhang Li said angrily.
“Why do I worry so much? It’s all Liang Hao’s fault. He actually can’t win my father’s favor!”
If she revealed her true feelings, it would make the others laugh.
After strolling for less than half an hour, they saw the two figures coming over quickly.
They were Liang Hao and Liang Mengqi.
Zhao Feng missed her very much as he had not seen her for many years.
He, therefore, quickly walked toward her with a smile, “Mengqi!”
He could not wait to hug her. As for Liang Mengqi, she was smiling in the distance, her bright eyes sparkling. Obviously, she also missed Zhao Feng very much.
But there was something more urgent now.
Liang Mengqi reached out her hand and patted Zhao Feng on the chest, “Wait a minute! I have some questions. What are Lili and the boss’s parents like? Are they easygoing? Did my brother leave a bad impression on them? What kind of people do they like?”
Zhao Feng was speechless in the face of such questions.
So, he spread his hands and said, “Erm, I’m not quite sure. Auntie Rong is very gentle, while Uncle Zhang is indeed heroic.”
“Alas, it’s useless to ask you.” Liang Mengqi shook her head and held Zhao Feng’s hand, following Liang Hao to the place where Zhang Han and the others were.
“Lili, I am here.” Liang Hao was so nervous that he was totally at a loss for words when he approached her. He, therefore, only greeted her anxiously.
Seeing his behavior, Zhang Li comforted him, “Don’t be nervous. My parents are very nice. Besides, my brother and sister-in-law will put in a good word for us.”
The two of them were in a long and happy relationship. Liang Hao, as a gentleman, always complied with Zhang Li’s wishes on their trips and choices of food. Just like Zhao Feng and Liang Mengqi, except for sleeping together, they had done all the things that couples did.
Moreover, considering that Zhao Feng had already been approved by the Liang Clan, Liang Hao felt so stressed!
He took a deep breath and looked at Zhang Han, “Thank you, brother. Thank you, sister-in-law.”
“You’re welcome.” Zi Yan shook her head slightly.
As for Mengmeng, she raised her little head and waited for two seconds.
Finding that Liang Hao stopped speaking, she pouted and asked, “Why, why didn’t you thank me too?”
When they heard what she said, everyone present did not know whether they should laugh or cry.
Liang Hao wiped the sweat from his forehead and said hurriedly, “Thank you, Mengmeng.”
“Uh-huh.” Mengmeng was satisfied and giggled again.
Mengmeng was good at enlivening the atmosphere. As long as the little princess giggled, everyone around her would feel comfortable. Generally speaking, people liked all manner of wonderful things, including nice people.
Liang Hao laughed and felt less tense.
“Let’s go and see your parents-in-law.”
Zhang Han glanced at Liang Hao.
He was a brave man and a handsome one too. A few days ago, he fought with Ah Hu in Hong Kong when Mount New Moon was in danger and was seriously injured. Learning about his condition, the Liang Clan asked him to recuperate. Therefore, he rested for a period of time.
Most importantly, Zhang Han wanted to improve his strength. Furthermore, the Liang Clan could obtain some martial arts resources every once in a while.
They went to the restaurant following Zhang Han’s remark.
Generally speaking, it took about half an hour to finish a meal, or even a few minutes. However, the dinner would last longer if people drank together. It was normal to drink for an hour or two. If they wanted to drink to their hearts’ content, the length of the dinner would be uncertain.
When they arrived at the restaurant, there were fewer people inside, for all the young members of the Zi Clan had left.
“They’re my parents.” Zhang Li reminded Liang Hao in a low voice.
Liang Hao swallowed his saliva with difficulty.
His heart started beating faster and even his palms were covered in sweat.
He was so nervous!
