Josh also explained: “Mr Huang, I mean no harm. Your daughter helped me yesterday and I just want to give the money back to her.”

“My daughter also made her attitude clear. She doesn’t want the money anymore. So please stop bothering her.” Jenny’s father waved his hand impatiently. He believed Josh was trying to flirt with his daughter, because her daughter’s beauty always makes her a target for these single men.

“Who the fuck is this pathetic loser? Is he also trying to flirt with Jenny?” All of a sudden, a man’s voice was heard from behind.

Josh looked back, and found a young man was walking towards them at a leisurely pace. He was dressed in designer clothes, and he wore an expensive watch.

“Gary!” Jenny and her father exclaimed at the same time when they saw him. Their face also changed slightly.

Josh frowned. Because that man was obviously talking to him just now.

Gary stopped in front of Josh and looked at him with undisguised contempt. He said: “Who the hell are you? Get lost! And never get near to Jenny ever again! You little piece of shit!”

He then looked at Jenny and said: “Jenny, I heard you are here seeking the cooperation of Huading Group. How did it go? Are they willing to cooperate with your company?” He put his hands in his trouser pockets.

“Gary, it’s none of your business.” Jenny seemed displeased.

“You are my future wife! Of course I need to care about that.” Gary wore a lascivious smile.

“Gary! You must mind your language!” Jenny’s father said.

“Uncle Huang, don’t be so mad. I am here to help!” Gary said. “Let me guess, Huading Group declined your request because your company is too small. You know what will happen next? Your company will go bankrupt. But if you ask Jenny to be my girlfriend, I’ll ask my father to help you.”

Before Jenny’s father could say anything, Josh interrupted and said: “You can help her? You are very confident with yourself, aren’t you? I have never met anyone who is as arrogant as you.”

Gary’ s face darkened and he looked at Josh. “Seriously. Who the fuck are you? Do you know who I am?”

“Josh, don’t mess with him.” Jenny tugged at his sleeve. She didn’t know Josh very well, but still, she didn’t want him to get into trouble for her.

“Why can’t I?” Josh put on a mysterious smile. He fears no one in this whole Qingyang City, after all, he is Moses Liu’s grandson, and Moses is the richest man in the Southwest.

Jenny’s father patted on Josh’s shoulder and said: “Young man, his father is a shareholder of Huading Group’s Qingyang branch. You’d better leave him alone.”

“His father is a shareholder?” Josh’s brow furrowed. He couldn’t believe his company’s shareholder’s son is now displaying arrogance to him. So he gave a short laugh and said to Gary: “What makes you so proud? Your father is just a shareholder!”

Gary’ s anger boiled up. He said: “You bastard! How dare you to talk to me like that.”

When he finished, he clenched his fist as if he was about to punch Josh, but Jenny’s father stopped him and said: “Gary, this drinking party is held by the new Chairman of Huading Group! Think twice!”

Gary refrained his anger after hearing what he said. He is arrogant but he is not stupid. He knew if he ruined this party and made the Chairman angry, both him and his father would be in great trouble.

“Bastard! You will suffer the consequences of your actions when the party is over!” Gary said angrily. He then looked at Jenny and said coldly: “I’ll give you some time to think about it. If you be my girlfriend, I’ll help your family. Or your family will be doomed!”

Gary then turned around and walked away.

Josh looked after him as he walked away and laughed coldly. “You will also face the consequences of your words.” He said.

“Josh, what were you doing? His father is a very powerful person. Why do you have to mess with him?” Jenny was worried.

A shareholder of Huading Group’s Qingyang branch is not a big deal in Josh’s eyes. But in Jenny’s opinion, that is a very important and powerful position. After all, Huading Group represents the biggest and the richest organization in the Southwest, and the power and wealth of a shareholder of this group shall never be underestimated.

Jenny’s father said: “Young man, Gary is a base man and he will never let the matter rest easily. So, listen to me. Leave this place right now, or you will find yourself in lots of trouble after the party.”

“Yes. Leave here now.” Jenny said. She knew Josh just offended Gary because he wanted to help her. So she didn’t want him to be in any trouble.

“Don’t worry. I am not afraid of him.” Josh smiled.

“You are overconfident!” Jenny’s father shook his head. He is not a snob, but he knew a person’s wealth and power can be roughly reflected from his appearance and his dresses. So, he could tell from Josh’s clothes that Josh is just an average man.

“Oh, I almost forgot. Maybe I can help you if you want to cooperate with Huading Group.” Josh said.

“Young man, there is nothing you can do.” Jenny’s father shook his head.

“Mr Huang, you will know whether I can help or not soon.” Josh smiled.

At that time, Bob, the general manager, walked onto the stage and announced: “Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to start our drinking party. Please be seated.”

Everyone went to his or her seat after hearing what Bob said.

“I have told you everything you need to know. You are a smart person and I think you know what is the wise thing to do.” Jenny’s father said to Josh. He then took Jenny to their seats.

“Why don’t you just tell them that you are the new Chairman of Huading Group?” Fatty asked curiously.

“They wouldn’t believe me even if I told them. They will know the answer in a minute.” Josh said smilingly.


The seats were actually arranged according to a certain order. The seats near to the stage were saved for these important people, and the seats at the back were saved for these people with less power and wealth.

Gary and his father were seated in the second row, and Jenny and her father were seated in the back row together with some other small bosses.

Jenny looked around and couldn’t find Josh anywhere. She sighed with relief and said: “I think he has left. I’ll be so sorry if he got into trouble because of me.”

Her father said: “He made a wise decision.” He than laughed mirthlessly and said: “We are in so much trouble ourselves and we are still concerned for him.”

At that time, Bob said through a microphone: “Ladies and gentlemen, I think you can not wait to meet our new Chairman.”

People nodded in unison. Ninety-nine percent of these people present had never met the new Chairman, and meeting him was actually one of their primary purposes to attend this party.

“Then I won’t keep this secret any longer. Ladies and gentle, please welcome the Chairman of Huading Group!”

People broke into rapturous applause.

“We are finally going to see him.”

“I heard he is a very young man. I’m so curious.”

People chatted nonstop.

Gary stared at the stage and applauded. His father said to him: “Gary, the Chairman will first give a speech, and after the speech, he will go to each table and raise a toast. When he is at our table, I want you to take a good attitude! Remember! Leave him with a good impression.”

His father knew how arrogant and rude his son can sometimes be.

“Don’t worry, dad. I know what to do. He is the Chairman. Why would I offend him?” Gary smiled.

Julia and her father were sitting in the third row. They stared at the stage attentively.

“I have been waiting for this moment for a long time. I can finally see him!” Julia said expectantly.

Jenny and her father also fixed their attention on the stage.

At that time, a man walked onto the stage at a steady pace, to great applause. It was none other than Josh.
