By now, almost ten minutes had pa*sed.
According to reason, at this point, that Ye Fan should have already been beaten to death by his own men with a messy stick.
However, why was there still no phone call?
“Could it be that there was some kind of accident?”
Meng Chuan frowned.
But soon, this thought was suppressed by Meng Chuan.
“I’ve sent so many people this time.”
“There are even martial artists who practice martial arts.”
“Even if that brat has three heads and six arms, he will definitely die.”
Before, what Meng Chuan was most worried about was simply that Ye Fan would not appear.
In the past few days, Meng Chuan had gone to great lengths to find Ye Fan’s trail.
In the end, he was able to get Ye Fan’s place of residence, a quadrangle in a city village.
However, after Meng Chuan went after him, he found that Ye Fan had already escaped.
In his anger, Meng Chuan used Hu Yipeng’s family as bait to lure Ye Fan in.
Meng Chuan had always been a man of vengeance.
A few days before, Meng Chuan had first been caught by Ye Fan and then nearly died at the hands of the Zhang family.
Previously, he had to hide his hatred in his heart because of the Zhang family’s might.
But now, the Zhang family was finished.
In the land of Jiangbei, their Meng family had ascended to the top as king.
From now on, he, Meng Chuan, naturally had no more scruples.
He would start with Ye Fan first, and then after the banquet at West Lake was over, he would go to Qiu Mu Orange.
“This b*tchy woman, does she really think that she can rest easy just because she’s close to the Zhang family?”
“Soon, I will let you know the true majesty of my Meng Family.”
Meng Chuan smiled fiercely, the arrogance and smugness in his heart undoubtedly thick to the extreme.
“Young master, if we don’t leave, it will really be too late.”
“The banquet at West Lake is a historic moment for our Meng family, it is better for young master not to be late.”
“Otherwise, the few clan elders over at the family will have words for young master again.”
At this moment, the old man beside him, once again urged.
Meng Chuan nodded “Alright then, let’s go over first.”
Meng Chuan didn’t wait any longer.
He reckoned that it was possible that Ah Shui and the others had forgotten to call and had instead rushed straight to the West Lake.
Besides, Ye Fan was only a minor and insignificant character to Meng Chuan.
At the moment, it was still the banquet at the West Lake that was a little more important.
The West Lake, surrounded by mountains on three sides.
The White Embankment, Su Causeway and Yang Gong Causeway in the lake divide the lake into several water surfaces.
From a distance, it looks like a jewel, set in it.
The green willow and the Yanggong Lake reflect the sun.
As far as the eye can see, there is a boundless view.
The West Lake has a history of thousands of years, and as time pa*ses, people change from one crop to another.
But the West Lake has endured for ages.
No one knows how much this lake will witness the rise and fall of the world.
At this moment, luxury cars from all walks of life are gathering.
In the north of the river, all the powerful and famous people from the major cities are gathered here today.
“What do you think the richest man is up to?”
“He’s suddenly holding this West Lake banquet.”
“And inviting all the celebrities in Jiangbei?”
“Could this be that the richest man is celebrating his birthday today?”
On the West Lake, the willows were still intact.
Several bigwigs were sitting on a crow-top boat, with the boatman swinging the oars and humming a song, slowly moving towards the island in the heart of the lake.
“As I recall, the birthday of the richest man, Meng, was in the summer.”
“This is just after winter now, it’s still early before the birthday feast?”
“Then what do you think is the purpose of this West Lake banquet today?”
“Is there any need to guess?”
“Haven’t you heard that the weather has changed in Lin’an recently?”
“The Zhang family is finished.”
“I reckon that Chief Meng wants to strike while the iron is hot and establish his authority at the top of West Lake today, so that the whole of Jiangbei will be completely subservient.”
“Let us, among others, respect him as the Lord of Jiangbei.”
After all, there were people with sharp minds who, based on the information they had gathered, quickly gained insight into the Meng family’s intentions.
The rest of them were first startled at the words.
And then nodded their heads in deep understanding.
“I didn’t expect that the Meng Family had really moved the Zhang Family down.”
“When I was very young, I heard my great grandfather tell me that what the richest man in Jiangbei, what the number one big man, that was all in plain sight.”
“The real king of Jiangbei is the Zhang family.”
“It must be more than sixty years since that was said.”
“The Zhang family, that’s the end of it?”
“It’s true that no one is good for a thousand days and no flower is red for a hundred days.”
An old man lamented repeatedly, just feeling that things in the world are fickle and unpredictable.
While they were talking, a small island appeared in the distance.
“It’s been a few years since I’ve been to the West Lake, why do I feel that this island in the centre of the lake has changed so much?”
“That pavilion used to be much older than it is now, it seems.”
“And, I remember that before it was all big sky-high trees.”
“How come the trees are all so skinny now?”
“Boatman, has this lake-centre island been rebuilt since then?”
As they were talking, it was someone among these few wealthy people who noticed the huge change on the Lake Heart Island and could not help but ask in confusion.
The boatman looked around, and then lowered his voice and said “Several bosses, you are not local people, right?”
“A few years ago, there was a tragedy on the West Lake, have you not heard of it?”
The boatman asked suspiciously.
He had thought that all the rich and powerful people on this boat were invariably people who had seen a lot of things, but now it seemed that this was not the case.
At least, they did not know about the West Lake tragedy back then.
“The West Lake tragedy?”
“What West Lake tragedy, old man, tell me more carefully.”
The people on the boat were immediately interested.
But among them, there was a young man who was not very interested.
This man was no other than Chu Wenfei.
He had also been invited to this banquet on the West Lake.
Originally, Chu Wenfei did not want to come, but when he thought about it, if he refused, he would undoubtedly offend the Meng family to death.
Having no choice, Chu Wenfei had no choice but to come with a stiff upper lip.
“I don’t know how that Miss Zhang Zixi is doing now.”
“I hope it’s alright.”
“It’s best to escape far away.”
While Chu Wenfei was worried, he was also worried about that Zhang Zixi who had saved them in the first place.
The whole of Jiangbei’s powerful people had almost all known about the Zhang family’s affairs.
Naturally, Chu Wenfei was no exception.
After learning that the Zhang family had been destroyed overnight, Chu Wenfei was so frightened that he tumbled out of his chair, picked up his things and was almost ready to run away.
After all, in order to relieve Qiu Mu Orange, Chu Wenfei had met with the young master of the Meng family.
Although it wasn’t exactly a deep hatred, it wasn’t exactly a pleasant situation at the time.
As the Zhang family was finished, Chu Wenfei was naturally terrified.
But on second thought, he was only a minor player, and he hadn’t offended Meng Chuan too much at the time, so the Meng family probably wouldn’t remember him.
As Chu Wenfei had expected, the Meng family did not come after him.
Only then did Chu Wenfei breathe a sigh of relief.
At the same time, he was also secretly inquiring about the Zhang family’s affairs.
Later, Chu Wenfei learnt that on the night of the Zhang family’s extermination, only Zhang Zixi had escaped.
Chu Wenfei felt that God had an eye.
Such a beautiful girl, Chu Wenfei really did not want Zhang Zixi to lose her fragrance.
“A few years ago, the land of Jiangbei was dominated by the Lu family.”
“The head of the Lu family, Lu Songliang, was even more majestic and dignified than the head of the Zhang family, Zhang Jiuling!”
“It can be said that at that time, the Lu family was the true emperor of northern Jiangxi.”
“Even the Zhang family had to be inferior to it.”
“That year, also on top of the West Lake, the Lu family held a feast to seal their name.”
“It was said that the land of the Dragon Dwelling in Yanjing sent an envoy to bestow its title.”
“When this was put in ancient times, that was to give the Lu family the title of King of a different surname!”
“So, the Lu family at that time, what a sight that was?”
“To the south of the Yangtze River in Yanxia, countless powers were honoured by them!”
“There was no one else in the limelight!”
As Chu Wenfei prayed for Zhang Zixi, the voice of the boatman already rang out in his ears.
Chu Wenfei immediately raised his eyebrows.
“This, why does it sound somewhat familiar?”
