Urban Martial Arts System - Chapter 27
Chapter 27: Choose Your Seat First
“You are?” Zhou Ping doubtfully looked at the couple.
“We are Li Xiaoyi’s parents. My name is Li Yaohua and this is my wife Shen Shaorong.” Li Yaohua rubbed his hands. “Well, can we speak with Young Master Zhou for a bit?”
With a hint of pleading in Li Yaohua’s eyes, Zhou Ping hesitated and nodded. “Is there a more private room?” Zhou Ping asked Mayor Wu.
Mayor Wu looked at Boss Zhao, and Boss Zhao quickly stood up. “It’s an honor for my old shop that Young Master Zhou can use my Baojin room. Please, Young Master Zhou, I will lead you.”
Zhou Ping nodded, and everyone gave way. Boss Zhao led the way, and Zhou Ping and the others followed.
Shu Liangcai looked at Zhou Ping, who was walking away, and wanted to say something. Mayor Wu glared at him, so he backed up.
Boss Zhao arranged a room and left. Seeing Boss Zhao leaving, Li Yaohua and the others were obviously relieved.
“What’s the matter? Go ahead.” Zhou Ping sat down.
“Young Master Zhou, I heard from Li Xiaoyi that there is a bet between the two of you?” Li Yaohua also pulled a chair and sat down.
“There is such a thing.” Zhou Ping nodded and looked at Li Xiaoyi.
Li Xiaoyi’s eyes were red, as if she had just cried. Seeing Zhou Ping looking at her, Li Xiaoyi’s eyes dodged for a while.
“The children are not sensible.” Li Yaohua pondered. “Why doesn’t my Li family pay 50 million as compensation to Young Master Zhou? Let’s just forget about it.”
“What are you talking about? 50 million?” Zhou Ping looked at Li Yaohua in amazement.
“I know 50 million is a lot, but we only have one daughter.” Li Yaohua sighed, as if he had lost a big bargain.
My grandfather’s Zhou family will be short of money? If they hear that, Yanping’s second-generation will laugh out loud.
Zhou Ping was speechless for a while.
“It seems that Li Yaohua obviously doesn’t know my identity. Although my identity is not a secret to those on top, it is not open to the public. It seems that Li Yaohua’s position is not that high.” Zhou Ping thought it was both angering and funny. This was the first time he was being bribed, though it was only a mere 50 million.
“Li Yaohua, right?” Zhou Ping shook his head.
“Do you know what I bet with your daughter?” Before Li Yaohua could speak, Zhou Ping took the initiative to stretch out a finger.
“10 billion. Your daughter and I made a 10 billion bet. Do you think I’m someone who is short of money? And now, you are offering me a mere 50 million…” Zhou Ping did not finish. He just kept shaking his head.
“Well, the so-called 10 billion is just a child’s nonsense. Can you produce 10 billion?” Li Yaohua’s face contorted.
“Others call you Young Master Zhou. I have learned that there is not a surname Zhou among the rich and powerful within the city. I don’t know where you came from, and I don’t want to know. Those who are wise will get the 50 million and go. My Li family is not easy to mess with either.”
“The whole city? Your vision is too low.” Zhou Ping sneered. “It seems that you do not intend to fulfill the gambling agreement? It is a pity that this was signed under the witness of the Martial Arts Bureau, and I can apply for enforcement. You can try any means you can use, but I can’t guarantee that the Li Family will continue to exist after that.”
Zhou Ping stood up and opened the door.
“By the way, my father’s name is Zhou Guorong and my grandfather’s name is Zhou Zuoguo. Don’t mistake them.” He closed the door with a bang, then walked away.
“Yaohua, why did you let him go so easily?” Shen Shaorong’s face was distorted in anger. “Force him and I don’t think he will still hold the bet true”
“Nonsense, where is this? Most of the city’s dignitaries are gathered outside.” Li Yaohua slapped his chair and let out a low growl.
“But if he doesn’t agree, what about your daughter?”
“If you ask me, it’s okay for my daughter to go to him.” Li Yaohua sighed.
“What did you say?” Li Xiaoyi paled, and Shen Shaorong erupted.
“Li Yaohua, are you still a man? You tell your daughter to be other people’s toy? If you dare to do this, I will fight you!”
“Don’t get excited.” Li Yaohua looked at the direction Zhou Ping went out. “This young master is a peerless genius who has passed the Seven Major Barriers. As long as he does not die, his achievements will never be low. Our daughter is not at a disadvantage if she follows him. And, haven’t you seen it?”
“Even Mayor Wu is respectful to him, which makes me a little confused about Young Master Zhou’s background.”
“Is there anything you haven’t figured out? Haven’t we already researched it? There is not a powerful family with the surname Zhou in the city.” Shen Shaorong looked at Li Yaohua ferociously.
“I don’t care what his background is, how talented he is, or how great his potential is. It is absolutely impossible for my daughter to be a toy.”
“I know. Let’s go out first.” Li Yaohua looked at his wife, feeling uneasy. “The whole city? Low vision? Is it from outside the city? And, Zhou Guorong? Zhou Zuoguo? Why do their names sound familiar?”
Zhou Ping got out of the room, feeling a bit funny, but he didn’t talk about it.
Walking into the lobby of the restaurant, everyone was already seated.
“Young Master Zhou, we’re just waiting for you.”
Mayor Wu and Boss Zhao were paying attention to the audience. Seeing Zhou Ping walking out, they greeted him enthusiastically.
“Eat? Don’t you want to compete first?” Zhou Ping was still worried about the promotion value.
“It’s never too late after eating…” Mayor Wu was about to say something when he saw the three Lis coming with a gloomy expression.
“Mayor Wu, Boss Zhao.” Li Yaohua also saw Mayor Wu and the others. He quickly put away the gloom on his face and greeted them with a smile.
“You’re not eating yet? I’m sorry to delay everyone. Later, I will invite and treat Mayor Wu and Boss Zhao.”
With Li Yaohua’s level, it was very rare to be able to build relationships with wealthy people like Mayor Wu or Boss Zhao. If it was on normal days, Li Yaohua would have difficulty meeting them.
“What are you doing? Do you want everyone to wait for you?” Seeing Zhou Ping standing, Li Yaohua frowned.
Zhou Ping raised his brows and stood still.
“You…” Seeing Zhou Ping not moving, Li Yaohua frowned his brows.
“What are you doing? Who do you think you are?” On one side, Mayor Wu and Boss Zhao almost wetted their underwear. If this offended Young Master Zhou, they would be finished.
“Um? I’m Li Yaohua! The chairman of the Li Group. Mayor Wu…” Li Yaohua was taken aback after being scolded.
“Li Group? Li Yaohua? I don’t know you. This is a celebratory banquet for the talents of this generation. Please go out if you have nothing to do with it.” Wu Shi snorted and turned his head to look at Zhou Ping.
“Young Master Zhou, everybody is waiting for you. You can choose your seat first.”
“What! Mayor Wu and Boss Zhao have to wait for Young Master Zhou to be seated before they start?” Li Yaohua looked at Zhou Ping in disbelief. “What’s your origin Young Master Zhou?”
