Urban Banished Immortal - Chapter 19
The Reunion of Vile Tetrad
“Fourth Brother! Fourth Brother! Come here,” Jia Yuan shouted at Guo Huai who just sat down in the hall. Guo Huai saw him waving with his carrot-like fingers but decided to ignore.
“Who’s Fatty Jia calling?” someone beside Jia Yuan said. Jia Yuan was one of Wucheng Vile Tetrad. Whoever got called by him this intimately should not be any good person, he thought.
“Brother Huai, is the chubby fellow calling you?” Tang Xi asked, smiling.
“Calling me? Why would he call me? I don’t know who he is. You guys have witnessed what he did just now, he was teasing girls in Wucheng Subhigh. Why would I know someone like him?” Guo Huai said with a serious expression.
“Jia Yuan, the Second Brother of Wucheng Vile Tetrad, is also the most attention-grabbing businessman who started his own business from scratch. Other than his successful business, there’s nothing good about him, he’s a good-for-nothing pervert. Bad guy, do you really not know him? I still remember back then, someone brought him to Ninth High School to pick up girls,” You Youyou said mercilessly.
“Fourth Brother, over here, over here! Aren’t you supposed to introduce these hot girls to me?” the guy representing the government to attend the charity sale shouted. There was a girl beside him, an absolute beauty. Almost everyone in this school would know her, she was the precious granddaughter of Li Xunyu, Li Xiaohua. A lot of people knew who this guy was as well. He was the Third Brother of Wucheng Vile Tetrad, the former vice chairman of the National Health and Family Planning Commission, now the vice chairman of Central Commission for Discipline Inspection. Though the two positions were both vice chairman, everyone knew that this was no ordinary promotion.
“Brother Huai, is that guy shouting at you?” Su Ye said, annoyed.
“I don’t know him. His girlfriend is right beside him but he’s still eager to find other women. You’d know he’s not a good person judging solely by his action. He even works for the government, I have to report him someday,” Guo Huai said with the same, serious expression.
“Brother Huai, you’re definitely a true gentleman. Let’s sit at the other side,” Murong Weiwei said, smiling. “Naughty Boy, being the Fourth Brother of Wucheng Vile Tetrad, you still refused to recognize your Second Brother and Third Brother.”
“Fourth Brother, I transferred the money to your card. You received it, right?” the moment Guo Huai turned around, a rough voice resounded beside his ears. “We have to enjoy more often at Wucheng Paradise. Although I didn’t get to pick up hot chicks, I get to enjoy the fifty million yuan for quite a while, hahah,” the one speaking was, of course, Li Yao.
“Xi, let’s go. What are you looking at?” Guo Huai said as he pulled Tang Xi with an arm and You Youyou with the other, before walking towards the front row. He acted like he did not hear anything.
“Guo Huai, if you dare to walk one more step, my golden Desert Eagle is about to go on berserk! If you’re confident that you can dodge my bullet, then please keep walking,” Li Yao said loudly before withdrawing his Desert Eagle from his holster. Being a head officer, he was not afraid to hold a gun in public since he had a firearms licence.
“Big Brother, so it’s you! I thought it was my hallucination hearing your voice earlier. Aren’t you supposed to be overseas for a mission? Why are you in Wucheng Subhigh?” Guo Huai said as he turned around and walked towards Li Yao before giving him a bear hug. A one hundred seventy-five centimeter kid hugging a one hundred ninety-five centimeter Li Yao seemed a bit weird.
“Big Brother, do you want some wine? If you do, you have to listen to me. I’m not threatening you, I’m giving you an opportunity. Five kilograms of wine, what do you think?” Guo Huai whispered to Li Yao.
“Ten kilograms and I’ll consider it done. I have a script in my mind already, the offer is up to you,” Li Yao said miserably. He did not give off the feeling of the King of Soldiers.
“Brother Yao, you’re super greedy. Alright, I promise you, Second Brother and Third Brother are yours to handle, they’re behaving too poorly,” Guo Huai said softly before tapping Li Yao’s shoulders.
“Done deal,” Li Yao said, smiling at the four beauties. Guo Huai then returned to the girls.
“My Big Brother, the King of Soldiers Li Yao,” Guo Huai smiled and said.
“Bad guy, he’s the Big Brother of Wucheng Vile Tetrad. I wonder why you recognized him. Heheh,” Su Ye said and snickered.
“Little Ye, you dare to tease me now that you’ve grown older, don’t you? Where’s the fellow Su Cheng? I’ll have to take care of him for not teaching his sister well,” Li Yao said, smiling. “I’ll stop disturbing you all. I’m going to the back, let’s eat together after the event,” Li Yao said before turning around and left.
“Why wouldn’t I recognize my Big Brother? He’s a Chinese army who protects the country and serves justice, an absolute hero. If you girls don’t belong to me, I would’ve introduced you to him already,” Guo Huai said with a straight face.
“Ahem, ahem. He protects the country, serves justice, takes advantage of the weak, abuses his power, seeks for prostitution all day, ...” Su Ye said, rolling her eyes.
“Heheh, Ye, how do you know so many of my Big Brother’s good qualities?” Guo Huai asked.
“They’re all rumors of the martial world. However, you seem to be slightly worse, you don’t have the first two points,” Su Ye said.
“Heheh, stop talking. The auction is starting very soon. After this, let’s have lunch together. Since today is a weekend, we can drink a few more cups. Am I right, Little Ye?” Guo Huai said, staring at Su Ye.
“Yes, yes, yes! Brother Huai finally said something that makes sense today, heheh. Xi donated an item for sale today, be sure to get it later!” Su Ye said, smiling.
At nine o’clock sharp in the morning, there were no more empty seats. The students of Wucheng Subhigh and outsiders were separated. Lin Shuang then appeared on stage wearing a long dress.
“Bad guy, your eyeballs are dropping out,” Su Ye said loudly as she looked at the salivating Guo Huai.
“Heheh, I was thinking that the lady on stage looked really familiar. I finally known who she is, it’s Teacher Lin Shuang!” Guo Huai said softly. Damn it, everyone close your stupid eyes. Who would so daringly stare at my wife like this?! Guo Huai thought.
“Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. My name is Lin Shuang. I’m one of the Mandarin teachers from Wucheng Subhigh, also the host for today’s auction. I hope everyone can actively participate in the activity, as the money gathered during this charity sale will be donated for the construction of primary schools in rural areas. I’ll first thank everyone here on behalf of them,” Lin Shuang said before bowing. After that, a round of applause suddenly resounded.
“There are a total of a hundred eighty-one items on sale today. Without further ado, let’s start with the first item in front of me,” Lin Shuang said as she removed a piece of red cloth, revealing a piece of paper peacefully lying on a porcelain plate.
“This piece of paper belongs to Li Xunyu, it’s the original famous calligraphy work called Dongpo Zhilin, by Su Shi of the Song Dynasty. The starting price is five thousand yuan, every call must exceed a hundred yuan. Let’s start,” Lin Shuang said, smiling.
“I want the piece of paper that belongs to Headmaster Li, to thank him for the knowledge he’s passed to me,” a youngster with tidy clothing said. “Fifty thousand yuan!”
“Li’s Dongpo Zhilin is authentic! I have seen it at his house before, it is a hundred percent legit. SIxty thousand yuan!” an old man smiled and said.
“A hundred thousand. Uncle Lin, I’m really sorry. My father told me that I have to bring this home today,” a woman in her forties said.
“Manager Xu from Wanfu Enterprise called for a hundred thousand yuan. Is there a higher call?” Lin Shuang said and waited for a few seconds. “Thank you Manager Xu, for making such a contribution.” In the disorganized auction, the woman was the highest bidder for the page of Dongpo Zhilin, a lot higher than the market price in usual auctions.
