Chapter 9 Taking the Initiative to Negotiate

Qiao Zhisheng bent down to sit in the back seat of the luxury car. Song Xi followed him. After closing the car door, the bodyguard took the hint and went away.

There were only two of them in the car. Qiao Zhisheng kept silent and raised his left hand, pointedly looking at his watch. Song Xi immediately understood and began to speak. “I know you are prejudiced against us because of my father’s unfriendly behavior.”

Qiao Zhisheng turned his head sideways and looked at her with doubt very apparent in his eyes.

Her scalp tingled, but Song Xi had to gather her composure and keep talking. “I do not want to argue about anything. Actually, I understand you. I can accept the way you treat me.”

She secretly looked at Qiao Zhisheng’s face while speaking. She could not see through him, so she could only proceed cautiously. Tentatively, she said, “I came to see you today to tell you that although my father entrusted me to you forcibly, I do not want to be your burden. We don’t need to confront each other with daggers. If you need any help, I can be your cooperative partner. If you’re willing, we can even become friends.”

There was a flash of surprise in Qiao Zhisheng’s eyes. What she said had really confounded him.

After several seconds of silence, he indifferently and languidly asked with a touch of irony, “How could you possibly cooperate with me?”

Before he spoke, Song Xi had been nervous. She was not afraid of him having questions but was instead afraid of him not asking anything.

With her back straight, she answered. “Connections. My father was an official of Ye City for 20 years.  Just call out an official’s name and I can find a way to get you in touch with him. Moreover, I can definitely get him on your side.”

The corners of Qiao Zhisheng’s mouth twitched up, as he gave a friendly warning. “Miss Song, your father has been caught.”

Song Xi silently clenched her hands which were close to the car door. She kept her countenance and smiled faintly as she answered. “I know the superficiality of human relationships. However, I also know that they valued me before not because of myself but because of my father so that the moment something happened to my father, they hid faster than anyone else. It’s an age where people are judged according to their power. As long as the force behind me is strong enough, they will meet me with a smile and treat me like half a daughter. As long as they think I’m close enough to you, I can save a lot of trouble for you when I hook you up with them.”

She added, “Of course, this is mutually beneficial. I need your protection.”

When it was all said and done, Song Xi felt empty and exhausted. In front of Qiao Zhisheng, she had to pretend to have a well-thought-out plan.

“It’s been three minutes.”

Qiao Zhisheng finally spoke but only said such words.

Song Xi did not know if he had heard anything she said, but she understood what he was implying: time is up. She should get off.

She dared not stay longer and did not want to be shameless. Song Xi lowered her eyes slightly, opened the car door, and stepped out with one leg.

When she got off and was about to close the door, Qiao Zhisheng, showing his handsome profile as he sat in the car, said, “Come to my company to get the money from the Accounting Department tomorrow.”

Song Xi opened her beautiful eyes wide in surprise and stared at him like silly.

Qiao Zhisheng turned his head and looked into her eyes. He calmly said, “I promised to invest ten million RMB in your hospital. I will stand by what I said. Remember what you said today. I will call you if I need you.”

Song Xi nodded dumbly. The bodyguard came from behind and closed the door. She stood still and looked at his car as it gradually drifted away and eventually disappeared.

It was completely dark. The street lamp elongated her figure. She came to her senses after a long while. She wondered how Qiao Zhisheng guessed she had come here for the money. Based on his reaction, he seemed to have agreed to cooperate with her.

The next morning, just as the Haiwei Group staff clocked in, Song Xi was already at the Accounting Department. When she mentioned that Qiao Zhisheng had asked her to come here, the department director personally gave her 10 million RMB.

With the cheque in hand, she went out. Seeing countless strange and meaningful looks, she felt as if the piece of paper was so heavy and that she had exchanged her dignity for it.

With this light piece of paper, the President will agree to let her operate Dongdong for free. Most realistic of all is that money chases the nightmare away.

When the child innocently asked, “Sister, will I be alright after the operation?”

Song Xi smiles and answered affirmatively. “Yes, you’ll definitely be alright.”

At this moment, she felt that all the humiliation she had suffered were nothing.

The operation on the little patient, which lasted for five and a half hours, was successful. After 48 hours of ICU monitoring, Dongdong was transferred to the general ward. From now on, he did not have to fear that he would not be able to see the latest cartoon on air tomorrow morning after closing his eyes.

Regarding the President’s sudden care and Dongdong’s operation, a rumor went around in the hospital that Chen Hao had given benefits to the hospital because Song Xi had slept with him when the Vice President brought her to join Chen Hao’s dinner party a few days ago. Otherwise, would pennies fall from heaven?

One Comment so far:

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time, he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour” (1 John 2:18).

    “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!
