So, CEO Ma had to pay extra five million for looking down at Chen. He was going to make Shi and Bing to pay even more for what they did to Lan. Without a doubt, the both of them will suffer greatly. Also, Chen did mention that he was going to make Shi regret his words. The real drama was going to begin now!
“I’m sorry for the long wait. Now, let me show you the Frosty Autumn Spring tree artwork…” Shi Dafeng laughed proudly.
However, Chen interrupted him when he was about to unfurl the painting scroll.
“Boss Shi! That has got to be a replica!” Chen said loudly.
Chen’s words were like a bomb that triggered everybody’s nerves. All of them had come here to purposely feast their eyes on the painting. It would be a bummer if they found out that the painting was a replica. Lan and Uncle Qin were very shocked after hearing what Chen just said to the crowd. They had no idea what was Chen trying to do this time.
“Bullshit! Everyone, please don’t listen to this bastard!
Shi Dafeng frowned and shouted angrily, “I spent two hundred million on this painting! I even pawned my jewelry shop to the bank! How is it possible that this painting is a replica?!”
Chen confidently said, “Let’s make a bet. I’m going to lay down twenty million for this bet. I bet; that this painting, is a replica.”
“Who do you think you are? You are just a boy toy. You’re not even worthy of making bets with me!” Shi Dafeng said angrily.
“Am I not worthy, or have you no balls?” Chen laughed.
“What do you mean, I don’t have balls?! This must be a joke! I can even put down my life as bet! Twenty million is just a small number! The question is, do you even have that kind of money?” Shi Dafeng said condescendingly.
He was one hundred and twenty percent sure that he had the authentic painting with him. Still, Chen was pulling off this stupid stunt!
“Open up your pig’s eyes and look carefully!” Chen took out his cellphone, opened up his banking application and said, “My remaining balance is twenty million and nine hundred forty thousand! Do you have the balls to bet with me?”
Shi Dafeng was speechless when he saw Chen’s bank account. Everybody in the hall was very shocked as well. They did not expect a poorly dressed young man to have so much money in his account. Without a doubt, most of the shock in the villa went to Bing. Wait, frightened was a better word to describe her current state.
A few days ago, she was already regretting about her breaking up with Chen when she knew that Chen had six million in his account. Looking at twenty million in his account, she felt like she wanted to commit suicide.
“Yes! Of course, I’m going to bet with you!”
Shi Dafeng calmed himself down. Greed quickly filled him up. All he could see now were dollar signs. He said, “I totally wouldn’t mind receiving twenty million from you. I have no reason to reject you. Master Tian is here. You’ll have to pay up, there’s nowhere for you to go.”
“Well, I would like to invite Master Tian as our witness.” Chen put his hands together and said. His tone was neither aggressive nor conciliatory.
“No problem at all.” Mu nodded. He sensed that Chen was being playful. “This young man is either an idiot or the real deal,” he thought.
“Chen… What are you trying to do? You’re creating a bigger mess now!” Lan looked at Chen and said nervously.
“That’s right! You are being too impulsive at your quick judgement. He spent two hundred million on that painting. It’s impossible that the painting is a replica.” Uncle Qin was very worried about Chen as well.
“Don’t worry. I know exactly what I am doing.”
Chen smiled and said casually, “Boss Shi. Can I please have a quick examination on your painting?”
Shi Dafeng hesitated briefly, and then, he handed over the painting to Chen and said, “Master Tian is here. Even you won’t be doing anything under his watch.”
“Relax, I’m just going to take a quick look at it. I’m not going to try anything.” Chen moved his side lips upward. An evil smile could be seen.
He slowly unrolled the painting. Everyone included Mu opened their eyes wide to take a look at the beauty of the precious painting. But, everyone was stunned the next second.
Without saying a word, Chen tore the painting into pieces in front of the crowd.
He even spat on it and said condescendingly, “How dare you say that this piece of garbage is the real deal!?”
Silence quickly filled the hall. The whole villa was dead silent. Not even the craziest person on this earth would expect Chen to destroy the painting. The accumulated wealth of Shi family was three hundred million. He had to use up all his liquid capital and also pawn the jewelry shop to the bank to get two hundred million to buy the painting. Technically speaking, Chen just tore two hundred million Yuan into pieces.
“S-Son of the bitch!! I’m going to kill you!! Kill you!!”
Shi Dafeng was like a wild boar that had received a jab in the butthole. He was basically charging at Chen to take his life.
“Boss Shi! Stop!”
Mu shouted, “No fights are allowed here! Those are the rules!”
Shi Dafeng was looking ferocious. Even if he had ten guts, there was no way that he would dare to disobey Mu’s command.
“Master Tian! This son of the bitch just destroyed my precious painting! You saw it yourself! You have to make sure that my justice is served.” Shi Dafeng said angrily.
“Don’t you worry. I will deal with this matter.”
Mu nodded, turned to Chen and said in a deep voice, “You have destroyed Shi’s Frosty Autumn Spring Tree painting. You need to pay for his loss.”
Lan and Uncle Qin were getting really nervous when they heard what Mu just said to Chen. The loss is two hundred million. Even Lan couldn’t acquire that much money in such a short time.
However, Chen was looking relaxed and he said calmly, “I tore the painting up and I’m willing to pay for the loss. But, your painting is a replica. I will pay, according to the price of a replica painting.”
“F*ck you! My painting is definitely authentic!” Shi Dafeng scolded loudly.
“Boss Shi! Please let him finish his sentence!”
Mu asked politely in a deep voice, “Young man. Do you have any way to prove that the painting was a replica?”
Chen nodded and said, “The real Frosty Autumn Spring Tree is with me!”
“What?! How is this possible?” A wave of shocking comments came from the people around Chen.
Lan and Uncle Qin had their eyes and mouths wide open. This mess was just getting bigger and bigger.
Mu raised his hand to calm the crowd down. He said, “Young man. If you have the real deal, why not take it out to show everyone? That would settle the matter once and for all.”
“Of course! I don’t have it with me right now. I have to go back to my place to get it.”
“Master Tian! Don’t believe his words! It is not possible for him to have the authentic one! He wants to escape!” Shi Dafeng scolded loudly.
“Don’t you worry, Boss Shi. I will go with him to get the painting.” Mu said in a deep voice.
“Alright! I can live with that.”
Shi Dafeng put on a savage look and cursed, “Son of the bitch! If you do not possess the real deal, I will make sure you pay for my loss! Also, I will shred your skin and pull your nerves out!”
