Rags To Riches Chapter 708

 Chang Rui's death has caused a major upheaval in the capital city.

                The old lady of the Zhao family, whom many of the magnates and nobles knew and even visited, had received a lot of help. Moreover, the Zhao family's position in China was pivotal, holding wealth and power that few could match.

                And according to the information the police had, the murderer was Zhang Quanzhen, and the Zhao family was secretly mourning and was mobilising all its forces to catch the murderer.

                Qin Ming, as a fellow traveler, only questioned Chang Rui on some issues and was eventually corrected by Sun Renbing that he was not in cahoots with Zhang Quanzhen.

                Things got so heated that a layer of Zhao family anger enveloped the entire upper class society of Beijing.

                Although Qin Ming was not affected by the ripples, the two Li brothers were bound to tell the world that he had joined forces with Zhang Quanzhen.

                Qin Ming and the Zhao family could also be said to have fallen out.

                For this reason, Qin Ming hurriedly removed the make-up from the corner of his eyes, while picking up a hair and changing back to his usual Zhao Zhengyin's clothes to sulk for a while first, so as not to be accidentally killed by the Zhao family's sons and daughters.

                "Where is Ah Long?" Qin Ming asked Song Ying on the phone from the dormitory, "There's no way Feng Dongxiang can do anything to him."

                "It's true that we can't contact him." Song Ying said worriedly, "There's no news from Feng Dongxiang either, the two seem to have disappeared into thin air."

                Qin Ming secretly gritted his teeth and said, "Then you continue to send people to look for them."

                Qin Ming hung up the phone in annoyance, and Lin Yurou, who was cooking at the side, said, "You're always quiet lately. Why don't you go and talk to Miss Nie? Or find Miss Mu as well."

                Qin Ming said, "You can't bring things back to them. They'll become dangerous."

                Lin Yurou said enviously, "You still care more about Miss Nie and Miss Mu in your heart."

                Qin Ming held his head in a tangle, he still had his heart for Sun Changxi.

                Now things were a tangled mess, making it difficult for him to deal with.

                Lin Yurou asked, "So is there anything I can do to help you?"

                Qin Ming said, "Your Lin family has already helped me a lot by helping to secretly pick up my teacher. All the more reason why I can't drag more things onto you. It would involve you too, and if something were to happen to you, how would I explain to your family."

                But it turned out that when Zhang Quanzhen had escaped, it was not without a designed back way, but with the help of the Lin family's people to retreat.

                Just as Zhang Quanzhen had thought at the beginning, he had come to kill Chang Rui.

                Moreover, the timing was just when Chang Rui knew that Qin Ming was impersonating Zhao Zhengyin, which could be said to be very timely, helping Qin Ming to keep his secret.

                Qin Ming asked again, "Has Sister Bai Ying settled down with her teacher?"

                Lin Yurou nodded and said, "Don't worry, our Lin family is still very secretive in this area, we have settled down at the moment and are recovering from our injuries."

                At that moment, there was a knock at the door.

                Lin Yurou opened the door and saw that it was Song Yixing and Song Yiling, two siblings.

                Both of them looked ashen, as if they had had a fight with someone.

                "Senior Brother and Senior Sister, what's wrong?" Qin Ming saw the two arrive.

                Song Yixing said, "The Yellow School is going to have a match with the Li family, and if our Yellow School loses, we have to hand over our teacher, and if we can't hand over someone we have to help find them, and all the Yellow School's territory has to be searched by the Li family's people."

                Qin Ming said, "Isn't that imposing? Who is the leader of the Yellow Sect? It won't be agreed, will it?"

                "General Zhu has agreed." Song Yiling grunted rather annoyed, "It's all because the Li family is aggressive, if we don't agree, our Yellow Faction will have to suffer all kinds of suppression in the future, no less than setting off a struggle between two factions."

                "Huh?" Qin Ming felt that it was very unreasonable, but remembering the background of the Li family, this was not a struggle between two factions, it might as well be a struggle between people from all walks of life who had learnt martial arts.

                There was no shortage of political leaders and business tycoons within the Yellow School, otherwise it wouldn't have grown so big, but it was just that they usually kept a low profile and enjoyed the privilege of not making a scene.

                But once this is done, I'm afraid that all sorts of revelations and dirty tricks will come up, and both sides will be greatly wounded.

                Then it would be better to use the most traditional match to decide the winner.

                Qin Ming took a breath and said, "It is also true that the Li family is already on the verge of getting out of control, using a tournament to pull back to the edge of controllability is instead manageable. At least, it would be if they won."

                Song Yixing sighed and said, "That's the problem, it can't be won."

                Qin Ming froze and said, "Why? Aren't you guys quite good? Last time, that Li Xigang from the Li family, he came and went without a trace, and you guys still didn't scare him away?"

                "Those of that level are only worthy of running errands." Song Yixing shook his head and said, "Those two brothers Li Rongbao and Li Dakai that you met at the Guangzhi Temple that day, they were already very powerful in the Li family, but they weren't top notch yet. We can't even beat those two brothers."

                Song Yiling stifled a nod and said, "Yes, senior brother. Do you think martial arts is that easy? When we came here just now, we ran into someone from the Li family and had a fight, with one of their younger generation, and a draw, and some losses."

                Qin Ming said in surprise, "Are there so many experts from the Li family?"

                Song Yixing nodded and said, "The Li family has many descendants, most of them are just not in the capital city. And how can the Li family's power be so solid just by relying on political power? The Li family itself is full of talented people, and with the monetary help of the Zhao family, it can be said that it is like a tiger adding wings."

                Song Yiling sighed, "Teacher has stirred up a hornet's nest this time. Li Rongbao and Li Dakai were in charge of protecting Chang Rui, and when Chang Rui died, it hurt the Li family's face and made the Zhao family shaken. This conflict is irreconcilable."

                Qin Ming nodded, "Indeed as long as the teacher is not found, the conflict cannot be resolved. Then you have come to me today, are you short of money? How much do you need?"

                Song Yixing shook his head and said, "The Li family's people played dirty and injured a dozen of our young experts from the Yellow School, causing us to be short of manpower, and Ninth Uncle asked me to come to you for help in the ring."

                Qin Ming was dumbfounded and said, "Huang Shengjiu despised me for learning martial arts halfway in the first place, and now he is looking for me ......"

                Song Yixing said, "There's really no one available, because the other side has requested that the two factions only need people within the age group of eighteen to twenty-five to compete."

                Song Yiling persuaded, "Senior brother, you don't want our Yellow Faction to hand over our teacher either, right? Although we don't know where our teacher is at the moment, if we really lose, we might have to cooperate with the Li family's actions and not give our teacher any facilities."

                Qin Ming bit his lip, this was true, Zhang Quanzhen was still at large, but it was hard not to ensure that in the future the Lin family would have limited abilities and would have to rely on the even larger Yellow Faction.

                He clenched his fist and said, "OK, let's compare, when?"

                Song Yixing said, "The day after tomorrow. That is, to decide the winner and to divide life and death."

                "Wait a minute! What did you say?" Lin Yurou, who had been quiet, suddenly stood up and asked, "Dividing life and death? This is not a normal competition match, you guys didn't tell us earlier? You guys are deliberately concealing it."

                Qin Ming also frowned.

                Song Yixing shook his head and said, "It doesn't exist, it's fine if you don't agree to not come, senior brother. We're looking for ten people for this competition, and my sister and I both need to participate. I forgot to tell you, that Li Dakai is actually just twenty-five this year. He is the most powerful of the ten people sent by the Li family."

                Song Yiling patted Qin Ming and said, "You have three days to think about it, we'll leave first."
