    Location: The Ma family's luxury villa, Sky City.

    Ma Hui rammed into the parlor with great rage. There was a middle-aged man on a couch in the middle of the parlor sipping coffee from the cup in his hand.

    "Hui Er, what happened? You look angry. Have you done the job your grandpa assigned you?" The man was Ma Da Tun, father of Ma Hui.

    "She chased me out, dad! Goddammit, what a bitch making a show of authority!" Ma Hui sat opposite Ma Da Tun. He poured himself a glass of vodka and guzzled it down in one shot.

    "Hey kid, do you have any idea how expensive that liquor is? It's a limited edition, and I specifically brought it back from overseas to celebrate your grandpa's seventieth birthday. How can you drink it like drinking water?" Ma Da Tun chided his son while giving him a fierce glare. The Vodka was extremely rare, so even he was reluctant to drink it unless the situation called for it.

    "Dad, did you hear what I said? I was chased out by that bitch!" Ma Hui grumbled.

    "What did she say?"

    Growing angry, Ma Hui huffed, "That bitch is intelligent, no doubt. She saw through my intention without me saying much. She said she would never sell the medical corporation to us and would expand it no matter how much it cost her. Is she out of her mind? Why won't she just let it go? Hmph, it serves her right for experiencing such huge losses!" This was the first time Ma Hui went to negotiate on behalf of the Ma family. He wanted to make the best out of the trip and prove himself worthy to his family elders. It was never part of his plan that Su Qiu Yue would give him the cold shoulder, much less slam the door on his offer.

    Ma Da Tun's face remained impassive as such result was within his expectations. He took a sip of the coffee and said slowly, "Let her be. It'll only be beneficial to us if the Su family throws more money into developing the medical corporation."

    "Why is that, dad? I don't understand," Ma Hui looked at his father with a puzzled expression.

    "Think about it. Who owns the pharmaceutical industry in Sky City now?"

    "That's a rhetorical question, dad -- of course, it has to be our Ma family!" Ma Hui pounded on the table and rose to his feet.

    Startled by his son, Ma Da Tun almost choked on his coffee. He harrumphed, "Stop being so dramatic. Your grandpa and your uncles and aunties are not here, so nobody is going to enjoy your show!"

    Ma Hui realized he had indeed exaggerated. He scratched his head in embarrassment and laughed, "Hehe, isn't the Ma family choosing the junior patriarch? Apparently, I'm too adapted to the masquerade that I've to put up at every family meeting. I'm sorry, dad."

    Ma Da Tun rolled his eyes and pulled their conversation back on track, "Yes, you're right. Our Ma family is the avant-garde of the pharmaceutical industry, and with us getting in their way, do you think the Su family will still able to get themselves a share of the pie? No matter how much the Su family spends on expanding their medical corporation, we'll turn it into a bootless errand. In the end, once they have exhausted their funds, they will have no other alternative left but to sell the medical corporation to us. Isn't that a win-win situation?"

    "Haha! You're right, dad! I never thought about that!" Ma Hui felt exalted after he got himself clear of the entwisting relationship. Now, he wished that Su Qiu Yue would pour more money into her medical corporation. The more the better.

    "Dad, I've gotten off on the wrong foot today and failed the task grandpa assigned to me. Will he be disappointed?" Ma Hui asked worriedly.

    "Rest assured. I'll tell him that you tricked Su Qiu Yue into throwing more money to expand the medical corporation using reverse psychology. We'll only make our move to purchase their corporation when the time is right so that we can get the most profit out of the trade," Ma Da Tun changed the whole story in a few simple words.

    Ma Hui applauded and shouted, "Bravo!"

    Ma Da Tun went to make the call after he finished speaking. He returned after five minutes and said, "The elder told me to praise you for doing a good job. Since the plan has changed, he ordered us to return to the Ma family's ancient mansion at once for an emergency family meeting. It's your stage now, son, make sure you give it your best shot!"

    "Sure! I'll not fail you, dad!

    Ma Da Tun and Ma Hui went to the Ma family's ancient mansion in a car. A few core members of the family arrived the moment they entered the parlor of the main building. Both of them found themselves a seat and waited patiently for the arrival of the rest family members. After everybody else arrived and no others were being left behind, the elder of the Ma family, clad in a black robe, walked steadily into the parlor under the protection of his bodyguards.

    "Good day to you, elder."

    Rising to their feet, everybody greeted Ma Long as soon as he entered the parlor. Ma Long gestured his hand to spare the formalities. Then, he walked to the end of the parlor and sat in the main seat.

    "Ahem! Ahem! The purpose of this emergency meeting is to collect thoughts from everybody here about how to take down the medical corporation of the Su family," Ma Long cleared his throat before continuing, "Initially, we planned to purchase their medical corporation for a rock-bottom price; hence earlier in the day, I sent Ma Hui over to the Su family's old mansion to negotiate with them. However, despite losing money, the Su family insisted and rejected our proposal. The negotiation was unsuccessful. We've to think of another plan. Any thoughts? Feel free to speak."

    Elder Ma's words gave rise to a lively discussion among the family members. All of them whispered to each other. At this time, Ma Da Tun played his eyes at Ma Hui.

    Taking his cue, Ma Hui smiled and said, "Grandpa, I have a plan. Do you want to hear it?"

    "Go on," Ma Long told Ma Hui to continue speaking by gesturing his hand.

    Ma Hui eyes glowed as he knew the chance for him to prove himself to the family elders had come. He reorganized his thought and spoke slowly and calmly, "The Su family has absolute dominance over Sky City. Neither large nor small familial clans in the Sky City have the nerve or could make a dent in their supreme position; however, that is not the case for the Ma family. We have thrived in the pharmaceutical industry for years, and if we said we are the second, nobody in Sky City has the guts to say they are the first..."

    Ma Hui praised the power of the Ma family to butter up the elders before bringing the topic up, "Since the Su family rejected our proposal and insisted on expanding their influence into the pharmaceutical industry, I say we should unite together and hammer their development to dust. After we've dragged them down, we'll purchase their medical corporation at an all-time low price. Then, all the expenditures the Su family have injected into the medical corporation will be ours!"

    Ma Hui's suggestion was not half bad. At least, most of the family members nodded in agreement. However, Ma Long, who was sitting at the main seat fell silent for a short moment before giving his thought, "This is a good idea, but there is a point that I don't agree with. If we openly and blatantly interfere with their medical corporation's development, we might get ourselves into trouble if the Su family strikes back."

    Elder Ma was right, and this was the very reason that held back the Ma family. Although the Su family was new to the pharmaceutical industry, they reigned supreme in other industries. With their huge network and influences, the Ma family members were afraid that they might not even get a loan approval from the bank if the Su family decided to bash them.

    "Of course, I've taken this issue into account, grandpa," Ma Hui whipped a confident smile on his face and said, "Can I have permission to invite a few of my friends to join us in our family meeting?"

    Everybody was stunned as they did not know what kind of friends had Ma Hui invited over. It stood to reason to call this meeting a family meeting. Inviting some outsiders to a family meeting was simply unacceptable and it was considered a taboo.

    Elder Ma hesitated for a moment before allowing Ma Hui to invite his friends to enter, "Let them in."

    Then, four handsome young men clad in fancy clothing entered the parlor, shocking the Ma family members.

    ......

    Location: the Su family's old mansion

    Qin Feng was having a great time reunion with Su Qiu Yue, Su Xia Tian, and Elder Su. After he filled his stomach, he turned to Su Xia Tian and said, "Xia Tian, have you finished your meal? Let's go out and have some fun!"

    Su Xia Tian's ear flicked when she heard Qin Feng was taking her out for some fun. Immediately, she threw away the chopsticks in her hand, pulled on Qin Feng's arm, she dragged him toward the gate, "Oh yes! Finally, somebody is willing to take me out to have some fun!"

    Qin Feng and Su Xia Tian were soon gone. Su Qiu Yue and Su Hao Nan exchanged glances in the air, and both of them smiled. They helplessly shook their heads as they realized sometimes Qin Feng and Xia Tian behaved like two children.

    Su Xia Tian brought Qin Feng to her pink BMW Z4 that was parked outside the Su family's old mansion. After they both got into the car, Su Xia Tian asked, "Big Brother Qin Feng, where are we heading to now?"

    Qin Feng pat Su Xia Tian's head and asked, "Do you know the way to the Ma family's ancient mansion?"

    Bewildered by Qin Feng's question, Su Xia Tian's eyes flickered as she said, "Yea, I know where is, but why are we heading there? There is nothing for us to play with her," Su Xia Tian knew her elder sister had been bullied by the Ma family's member. She sulked when Qin Feng mentioned the Ma family.

    "We can create our own fun. How about... We throw a party at the Ma family's mansion?"

    Su Xia Tian's vitality returned when she heard Qin Feng was going to bring her to make trouble for the Ma family. She stepped on the throttle, and the BMW stormed forward, "Yahoo! I love to create trouble for other people. Big Brother Qin Feng, do you need any assistance? I'll call all my people to support you!"

    "Nevermind, we two are more than sufficient."

    Actually, Qin Feng alone was more than enough. He brought Su Xia Tian just to let her watch the show. He had broken through to Stage 4 inner qi, and he'd become even stronger. There wasn't almost anybody in the few cities of the Yun Province who could put up a fair fight against him.

    "You're right! With me as your sidekick, Big Brother Qin Feng, you just have sit on the sidelines and watch me fight. I alone am more than enough to destroy those bastards!" Su Xia Tian was great at blowing her own trumpet as well which surprised Qin Feng.

    Su Xia Tian was keyed up as they drove across the road. Her excitement was best shown by how she drove the car faster and faster while humming a fast-paced melody.

    Meanwhile, Qin Feng looked dazedly at the view through the car window as the footage of him spending time with his loved ones surged into his brain. This was the first time he had stepped into the Yun Province after the great battle at the Amethyst Dragon Palace three months ago. He missed his women a lot: Zhao Ling Xian, Lin Bei Bei, Bai Qing, Li Yu Chen, Liu Wen Jing, and her cute younger sister. He wondered how they were doing lately.

    Ding!

    "A new side quest of the Yun Province Disturbance has been assigned: make a forceful, frightening, and stunning return to the Yun Province and stun all your enemies!

    Time period: one month!

    "The system will reward Host Qin Feng 10,000 Hedonist Points, a piece of Blood Demon Armor, and a compendium of Call of Million Beasts skillbook. If the quest is failed, 20,000 Hedonist Points will be deducted, and the Sacred Azure Battle Armor will be revoked!"

    ......

    The system notified him while he was thinking about his women.

    Slightly stunned, if he recalled correctly, the system had released two quests after the system had rebooted. One was the 'Yun Province Disturbance' while the other was the 'Martial Artist Disturbance"

    The system suddenly added a new side quest to the 'Yun Province Disturbance' which intrigued Qin Feng. He quickly initiated the Hedonist Sovereign System to check it out.

    "Yun Province Disturbance main quest: unify the four cities in Yun Province.

    "Time period: one year.

    "If Host Qin Feng successfully clears the quest, the system will reward Host Qin Feng 30,000 Hedonist Points, and Host Qin Feng will gain a chance to activate one of the mystery interfaces in the Hedonist System. If the quest is failed, 60,000 Hedonist Points will be deducted, and Host Qin Feng will not be allowed to set foot in the Yun Province for the rest of his life!

    "First side quest of Yun Province Disturbance: destroy the Sima family of Acropolis City. The system will reward Host Qin Feng 20,000 Hedonist Points and a random Blue Grade Spiritual Equipment if the quest is cleared. If the quest is failed, 40,000 Hedonist Points will be deducted.

The system will reward Host Qin Feng 20,000 Hedonist Points and a random Earth Grade Skillbook if the quest is cleared. If the quest is failed, 40,000 Hedonist Points will be deducted.

The system will reward Host Qin Feng 20,000 Hedonist Points and random high-grade Pills of Immortality if the quest is cleared. If the quest is failed, 40,000 Hedonist Points will be deducted.

    "Fourth side quest of Yun Province Disturbance: make a forceful, frightening, and stunning return to the Yun Province and stun all your enemies! Time period: one month. The system will reward Host Qin Feng 10,000 Hedonist Points, a piece of Blood Demon Armor, and a compendium of Call of Million Beasts skillbook.
