Chapter 204: Untitled
“I guess your deals with Louis can end. The appearance of counterfeit
diamonds is an excuse for you, or even Old Master Ye’s dealings with
him to end. All trading is done under MBS’s name. It would be wise to
wrap them up since the reputation is lost. If you still have to keep it
going, routes are aplenty. Why must you tap on Louis’s routes?”
If Old Master Ye decided to make a move and pin Third Young Master Ye
down together with Louis, he would not be able to hide from it. No more
dealings would mean hassle saved. Besides, Third Young Master Ye dabbled
in these illegal dealings only to impede Old Master Ye. Worse came to
worst, he just would not take such risks in the future, which was the
“This is the final time!” Ye Chen said. It was a done deal, and it
could not be canceled at anybody’s whim or fancy. There were too many
implications, and the cancellation would not only implicate Louis. If
Louis wanted to pin all the blame onto him, he could not hide from it.
If it was just him, who else was he afraid of?
However, he was not alone now. With Anya and Ning Ning by his side, he
could not be as ruthless as he used to.
People who dabbled in the firearms and diamonds trades were never short
of money or enemies. A little indiscretion was all it needed for a rival
to attempt a hit on you and send you to your maker. With his rivals
lurking in the dark, he had to take all possible precautions to prevent
Third Young Master Ye did want to take the risk, and he could neither
afford to offend that person too. Once somebody had a weakness, they
would be afraid that others would use that weakness to manipulate them.
Third Young Master Ye did not like to be on the losing end, and this
would be his final trade with Louis.
Once the deal was done, he was going to entirely retire from it. Having
one member of the family dabble in illegal dealings was enough; he would
be content being a law-abiding citizen.
Cheng Anya did not understand Ye Chen’s considerations. She wanted to
say something but eventually did not say it. Perhaps the man in her
family wanted to protect both mother and son. Since he wanted to be a
hero, he would get his wish!
When she returned home, Ning Ning had already prepared dinner. He was
agape and bedazzled at how his parents were thoroughly drenched by the
rain. Cheng Anya and Third Young Master Ye, in tacit agreement, kept the
incident under wraps.
Saying more was not helpful because Ye Chen had his own ego with regard
to some issues whereas Anya had her own considerations!
Starting the next day, Chen Xiaoyu would shadow Anya the whole
twenty-four hours. As long as Third Young Master Ye was not present, she
would not leave Anya a single inch. In Third Young Master Ye’s words,
he was taking all the necessary precautions!
Cheng Anya was always worried whether anything regarding the counterfeit
diamonds incident would crop up. Counterfeit diamonds appearing for no
rhyme or reason severely damaged MBS’s reputation. As MBS’ president,
Third Young Master Ye would definitely not be able to escape scrutiny.
The consignment of fake diamonds was destroyed. There was no evidence
even if someone stumbled across the incident as said evidence was
destroyed. Hence, she should not have been so worried.
However, some accidents were so timely that they aroused suspicion. Ever
since Louis arrived in City A, how many incidents had happened?
Yao Hua suddenly injecting capital into Yun Enterprise, Old Master Ye and
Louis’s treachery, Louis’s ambivalence, and now… fake diamonds in
the raw materials. Every incident gave her an ominous feeling.
Cheng Anya’s sixth sense, especially with regard to people whom she
loved, had always been exceptionally accurate.
That damned sixth sense!
But it seemed to be inaccurate this time!
After the incident, a week passed uneventfully. She had returned to the
hospital for rehabilitation twice and could take a few steps.
Louis had yet to make his move!
The original timing he had scheduled to discuss matters with Third Young
Master Ye had passed, and he had yet to make any movement.
During that period, he made a call and wanted Anya to inform Third Young
Master Ye that work matters could wait as he would be in City A for a
very long time!
While he was not nervous, the secretariat was extremely nervous!
As they wore that perverted attire of a spinster day in day out, barring
that really frustrating pair of glasses, they still had to endure Third
Young Master Ye’s coldness. The entire floor was frigid cold, and Liu
Xiaotian had the worst as she had to occasionally accompany Third Young
Master Ye to meet clients. Having to endure Third Young Master Ye’s
cold and stern look in trembles and fear left her seemingly constipated
and unable to be devoid of tears.
She prayed to various gods daily that Cheng Anya’s leg would quickly
recuperate as this was actually Cheng Anya’s job.
Cheng Anya did not know how this calm atmosphere could be explained away.
She felt that something was about to happen, as though it was the calm
before the storm. The calmer it was, the more intense the storm. That was
After a calm two weeks, Yao Hua suddenly launched a massive attack
against MBS and the stock markets entered turmoil. This time, Yao Hua,
together in combination with Yun Enterprise, was out to really do Third
Young Master Ye in with frequent and intense maneuvers.
In what was totally different from a typical commercial war, Yang
Zekun’s maneuvers were not as slightly gentlemanly as before. He
suddenly became very strong-armed and his style, from how he manipulated
the stocks and future indexes, had changed drastically.
From grabbing share to customer base… A variety of actions indeed!
What was intense at the start became mellowed and then became even more
intense thanks to the two of them. A fierce fight was underway!
And MBS was in a disadvantageous position this time!
While Yao Hua was comparable to MBS, it was on steroids once it
collaborated with Yun Enterprise. Although Third Young Master Ye had
nothing to fear initially, the misappropriation of the funds for the
Repulse Bay project substantially tightened liquidity.
Ye Chen and Yang Zekun were legends in the business arena. Although their
methods and styles differed, they were of similar ability. With both of
them being bright and having sparred with the other for many years, they
knew each other and could easily perceive how the other party would
Under such a condition, the financial might of both companies were up for
Whoever was able to throw more money into the market would win. Whoever
who had insufficient capital would lose!
Tactics only determined 1% of the outcome!
Cheng Anya could not help but call Yang Zekun. She wanted to ask Yang
Zekun what all these were for.
She was not afraid of Third Young Master Ye losing, but she desperately
hoped they would not get into a life-or-death duel. Besides, Yang Zekun
had picked a fight first.
“Miss Cheng, I am sorry but the GM is having a meeting!” The
secretary’s distant and polite voice came through the machine. Cheng
Anya’s thought sunk. He was not picking up her call?
As it was office hours, she wanted to remain professional. As she called
using the office telephone, she would naturally call Yao Hua’s GM
This was the first time Yang Zekun refused to pick up her phone call.
“Miss Pang, could I trouble you to tell him that I am looking for him
after his meeting has ended?”
“Okay, I’ll help you convey the message!”
After she hung up the phone, Cheng Anya gently massaged her aching
eyebrows. This was terrible!
After nothing happened in two hours, Cheng Anya called again. He was
still in a meeting and she was sure he did not want to speak to her.
Maybe he had guessed what she wanted to say!
“Senior… Is this the business arena?” Cheng Anya smiled bitterly.
There was no response!
