C33 – Just Call the Police
“What’s the matter? Didn’t Changsheng ask you to drink? Why is he drinking to vent his anger?” Liu Mei went forward and asked curiously.
“Yes, Dad. What happened?” Zhang Xiaoloong was also puzzled. Usually, his father was a very peaceful person. How could he be so angry?
“Don’t mention it anymore, Changsheng is really a good-for-nothing…” Just as Zhang Daniu was about to curse a few more times, the two beauties in the room heard the voice. They also walked out. This time, he also realized that there was a guest at home. It was not good to scold people anymore.
Zhang Xiaoloong introduced them, and the few of them exchanged a few words before returning to the room to talk about what had just happened.
It turned out that Liu Changsheng was Liu Mei’s family. He was the security captain of a hotel in the county town. Usually, he did not go home often, so he reserved the land at home for others to plant. The five acres of land that Zhang Xiaoloong grew corn at home was rented from Liu Changsheng’s house.
That day, Zhang Xiaoloong went out to the city, and Liu Changsheng’s family just happened to come back from the county town. They came to visit. Liu Mei was also a hospitable person. She knew that the stove in the other party’s house had not been turned on. She invited them to eat at home and even specially cooked a large pot of corn porridge.
It could be imagined how the family would react after drinking the porridge. Liu Changsheng also kept asking how they made it.
Liu Mei didn’t have so many complicated thoughts. She just repeated what Zhang Xiaoloong said and even complained about such a good land. Xiaoloong did not want to plant food and had to plant vegetables.
Liu Changsheng didn’t have the mood to listen to this at that time. He originally wanted to come back to see the county and then go back to the county. He stayed for another day. Today, he called Zhang Daniu over to drink. In fact, he wanted to buy the corn that he had just received.
This was nothing. Zhang Daniu wanted to sell it for a good price. Anyway, as a farmer, what did he not eat to fill his stomach and drink such a good thing? He felt that it was a waste. If he wanted to exchange it for money, he could prepare more for his son to go to college next year.
However, Liu Changsheng opened his mouth and offered 80 cents, which made Zhang Daniu angry. A few days ago, someone sold corn, and they all sold it for 85 cents. His corn was so delicious that he had nowhere to find it. Not only did the other party not offer a high price, but he also sold it. Zhang Daniu was naturally not willing to lower the price.
In the end, Liu Changsheng acted as if he was giving charity and gave another five cents. He even said that the corn would not be sold to him, so he was prepared to be unlucky at home. No one would dare to accept it if he didn’t say anything.
Although Zhang Daniu was honest, he also had a stubborn temper. He could negotiate with a good voice, but he would not lower his head even if he pressed it down. He immediately turned around and came back.
“This is too much. Isn’t this forcing people to buy and sell?” After listening to Zhang Daniu’s narration, Yang Jingjing also said angrily, “Uncle, don’t be afraid. I must expose him. I don’t believe that no one can interfere in this matter.”
“He is the security captain of a hotel. How dare he do such a thing?” Chen Yaru’s thoughts were not that simple.
“As the saying goes, a seventh-grade official in front of the Prime Minister. I heard that the boss of that hotel is very related to the county. Liu Changsheng’s wife also has some relatives with that boss. Only then did he become the security captain. But no matter what, he is still a relative. If there is really a problem… They must be on the boss’s side. That’s why Changsheng is starting to look down on his fellow villagers.”
“It would be simple if you put it that way.” Chen Yaru smiled. “Uncle and auntie, ask around which hotel he works at. I’ll look for a servant to take care of him later. He won’t be able to be the captain of the security team and the boss won’t protect him anymore.”
Zhang Daniu and Liu Mei looked at each other and thought, Isn’t he here to install the glass? Why does this girl have such a big tone?
Zhang Xiaoloong did not doubt that Yuanbo might not be the biggest company in Qingyang City. But the scale was not small either. With Chen Yaru’s network of connections, if he really wanted to say something… It was also very easy to drive Liu Changsheng away.
Even if they were close, the boss wouldn’t make trouble for his hotel just because he wanted to protect Liu Changsheng.
“Forget it.” Zhang Xiaoloong thought for a while and said calmly, “If you can’t sell it, you can’t sell it. Anyway, I don’t intend to sell it. We already ate it ourselves. How can we let this good thing get moldy?”
Yang Jingjing and Chen Yaru were a little angry and were about to speak again. However, they were interrupted by Zhang Xiaoloong. “We are still relatives with him. Besides, our family still planted his land. Although it was not white, harmony made money. If they really got into a fight, in the future, no one will look good.”
“Xiaoloong is right. Changsheng doesn’t do things properly. We can’t learn from him.” Zhang Daniu nodded in agreement.
“Yeah, if we really let him go… His wife and child’s family also need to have a way to support them, right? For the sake of the villagers, let’s not argue with him about this. We’ll just take this as a matter of the past.” Liu Mei also felt that what her son said was right.
“Uncle, auntie, and Xiaoloong, you are all too kind.” Yang Jingjing’s eyes contained respect and sympathy. “But you are too kind to this kind of people. You will suffer.”
“Jingjing is right. If they don’t teach this kind of person a lesson, they will only take an inch.” Chen Yaru also echoed.
Zhang Daniu waved his hand and was just about to speak when he heard some movement outside.
“Brother Daniu, why are you running away while drinking? How’s the corn matter?” As he spoke, a burly man in his forties appeared. He had already walked past the threshold and looked around the room. He immediately saw the two girls that made people’s eyes light up, “Yo, there are guests at home.”
“That’s enough, Changsheng. We’re not selling corn anymore.” Liu Mei was after all from the same family, so she took the initiative to show her attitude. “You saw it too. There are people at home today. If you have something to say, let’s talk about it another day.”
This was already driving people out, but thinking about how the other party was forcing them to buy and sell, it was already considered polite.
“These two are also here to buy corn, right?” Liu Changsheng looked at the two beauties with a fake smile, “Big nephew Xiaoloong is really capable, where did he find a buyer?”
“Uncle Changsheng is also becoming more and more capable. The well water is not enough for you to eat. You have changed to the river water.” Zhang Xiaoloong replied with an indifferent tone.
When one ate the river water, one would be able to take care of it. Naturally, he felt that Liu Changsheng was meddling in other people’s business. There was no need to tell him where the person came from.
“The two of you are from the city to buy corn, right?” Liu Changsheng’s eyes stared at Yang Jingjing and Yang Jingjing.
“So what if I am? So what if I am not? You don’t have to care about the freedom of business, do you?” Yang Jingjing understood the cause and effect of the matter and had long been angry for Zhang Xiaoloong’s family for a long time. Naturally, she did not have a good tone.
“Hehe, it seems that you really came from the city. You don’t understand the rules of our countryside. The car at the door is yours, right? If you really want to buy this corn, not only will the car not be able to walk out, but you guys will also not be able to walk out.” Liu Changsheng threatened.
“Then it seems that we can only call the police,” Chen Yaru took out her phone and waved it in front of the policeman. “I want to see if you still say that in front of the police.”
“Report it. Just report it. In the end, if you can buy a grain of corn, I, Liu Changsheng, will write it upside down.” Liu Changsheng was not surprised at all. Instead, he was even more proud of himself.
