I'll Add Points To All Things - Chapter 566
Feng Yonghui was born cautious and mature. Otherwise, he would not have stood out from the rest of Old Master Feng’s other children. He had always believed that the son of a rich family would never sit on his laurels and would never personally confront any danger.
Hence, when he met Su Yang that day, he asked Su Yang to come to his house. He had arranged for more than ten bodyguards to stay away from hindsight. Plus, he even had his pistol on him to prevent Su Yang from making any risky moves.
Yes, that’s right. He really did have a real gun on him. The gun that he pointed at Su Yang was just a fake meant to be a cover-up.
‘From the looks of the results, my arrangements seem to have been futile against Su Yang. Based on the surveillance cameras from outside the house, Su Yang didn’t even lift a finger. Instead, that lady bodyguard of his managed to take care of the four bodyguards on the scene within a few seconds.
‘With that kind of speed and ferocity, I would actually believe it if she’s a professional killer.’
At that thought, Feng Yonghui’s heart churned. ‘I still feel that something’s wrong, very wrong. I can sense a great threat coming, but I just can’t figure out what I’ve missed.
‘What could it be?
‘I shouldn’t have missed out anything though.’
Feng Yonghui thought about it for a long time, but he still could not find the reason. In the end, he had no choice but to submit that it was just his imaginations.
The next day, Feng Yonghui suppressed the uneasiness in his heart and went to visit the Jiangs personally. The person who received him was Jiang Yan’s father.
No one knew what the two of them had talked about. However, when Feng Yonghui left, there was not much expression on his face. There was no anger, but there was no happiness on his face either. It made one feel like the Jiangs did not reject him directly, but neither did they agree to his demands.
Young Master Ying was the one who told Su Yang about this matter, but Su Yang did not really care about it. In his eyes, the Fengs were like gra.s.shoppers after autumn, unable to live for more than two days.
On the other hand, Feng Yonghui returned to the capital without any success from the Jiangs. He still had much to do with little time to waste.
However, when he was working, Feng Yonghui could not forget about his meeting with Su Yang.
This caused Feng Yonghui to be unable to fall asleep after work every night, even when midnight struck. Instead, he would close his eyes and carefully recall the moments of his meeting with Su Yang, going through every single bit of detail.
‘There’s nothing unusual with Su Yang apart from being extremely calm…
‘But this is exactly the problem.
‘How could he be so calm at that moment? Is he not afraid of guns? Or did he know that I was holding a toy gun?
‘That’s impossible, he couldn’t have known all these things.
‘So, what kind of support does he have exactly?
‘I feel like I’m being possessed.’
Obviously, Feng Yonghui’s abnormal behaviour had attracted his wife’s attention. After Feng Yonghui had locked himself in the study for two consecutive days and mumbling something the moment he closed his eyes, his wife made him chicken soup and sent it to his study.
After putting the chicken soup on the table, his wife asked softly, “Yonghui, what’s been going on with you for these past two days?”
Feng Yonghui frowned behind his gla.s.ses. He opened his eyes and looked at his wife before shaking his head. “I don’t know either. I just feel like something’s wrong.”
Then, his wife moved a chair to sit down and asked, “What’s wrong? Did something happen?”
Feng Yonghui shook his head again. “That’s the problem. Nothing happened, but I just feel like something’s wrong.”
After that, he told her about his meeting with Su Yang in detail. He also told her about some strange things.
After hearing Feng Yonghui’s explanation, his wife thought about it for a while before saying, “Perhaps you’re too tired from work and are thinking too much about this.”
Feng Yonghui took off his gla.s.ses, wiped them and said in a low voice, “If that’s really the case, that’d be great. But you know me. I’ve always been sensitive to danger since I was young. This matter has left me feeling uneasy all the time.”
“I keep feeling like… We’ve offended someone we shouldn’t have.”
Then, he finished wiping his gla.s.ses and placed them on the table. Rubbing his face with his hands, he exclaimed as he said, “Now that I think about it carefully. Although our family is big and powerful, a lot of it is because of Father and myself. Neither of these are the correct path.”
“All these years, we’ve been thinking about who we can defeat and who we can step on, but we haven’t actually done much for the people. Whenever I think about this, I will feel nervous.”
“Coupled with the fact that the country has been heavily targeting these problems recently, I’m really worried.”
Hearing this, his wife patted him lightly. “Why are we talking about this? Aren’t we talking about the person who killed Feng Xiao?”
Feng Yonghui was stunned for a moment when he heard what his wife said. He could not help but laugh. He patted his forehead and said, “That’s right, that’s right. Sigh, I accidentally said too much.”
However, after saying that, he was stunned because he suddenly felt even more unsettled.
‘Could it be that… My uneasiness isn’t because of Su Yang? Could it be that someone else is targeting me instead?’
With that thought in mind, he picked up the gla.s.ses on the table and comforted his wife. Then, he quickly made a few phone calls to a few big shots that he was familiar with and asked around.
However, none of the big shots had heard anything.
After confirming that the upper echelons were not keeping an eye on him, Feng Yonghui’s heart calmed down. ‘Maybe I really am overthinking things.
‘With the level the Fengs are at at the moment, unless I’m deliberately courting death or the upper echelons were targeting me, the possibility of our family falling is extremely low.’
However, to be safe, the next day, Feng Yonghui still ordered everyone in the Fengs to lay low for the time being and not cause any trouble. If they were to encounter any trouble, they were advised to resolve the matter peacefully.
Then, he started to contract all the activities of the Fengs.
He had also put a halt to all activities related to dealing with Su Yang.
Furthermore, all the barely legal projects that he had originally been working on had also been stopped or terminated.
He even found an excuse to call his son overseas to stay by his side to prevent his son from causing trouble.
To the cautious Feng Yonghui, safety was of the utmost importance during that special circ.u.mstance.
After everything was arranged, Feng Yonghui finally breathed a sigh of relief. ‘I think I’ve got a foolproof plan now, so there shouldn’t be too big of an issue.’
He relaxed a little, picked up his schedule, and looked at it. Because there were many projects and matters that had stopped, he did not have much to do. ‘Other than my daily work, there’s only one press conference tomorrow afternoon.’
The press conference was an interview with foreign and domestic reporters, mainly about his recent plans. He was the main speaker…
At the same time, after Su Yang used the talisman on Feng Yonghui, he no longer cared about the Fengs because he had something more important to do now, completing the Platinum Mission.
Even though he did not know what the Platinum Point was for, just the two Random Points from completing the first round of the mission alone was worth it.
Unfortunately, the requirement for the first round of the Platinum Mission was to help the sharks on Socot Island. However… Janet had been searching for the sharks in her original form for three to four days. Other than the first two sharks, he had not found the group of sharks.
They seemed to have suddenly disappeared into thin air…
Since he could not even find someone to help him, Su Yang was at a loss as to how he would be able to complete the Platinum Mission.
He did not like to sit back and enjoy the fruits of others’ labor, so he was wondering if there was anything that he could work hard for.
‘Right now, the Fengs have yet to be dealt with, so I can’t give +4 to Janet’s combat ability. After all, the time needed for him to achieve +4 is uncertain. In that case, I can only think of a way through my other special items.’
As he thought about it, he thought about the recipe item that he had not made.
Because he had been fighting with Sun Hao and the Fengs recently, Su Yang had been saving the recipe item in the system shop for a month. Even his temporary slot was full.
‘The first recipe item is [Basa Fish Of Unknown Abilities (+2)].
‘It’s something related to fish?
‘Perhaps it’s some kind of special item that turns me into a fish or allows me to breathe underwater.
‘In that case, could I then help Janet to find the group of sharks and help them?’
As Su Yang thought about it, he felt that the possibility of such a coincidence was too low.
However, with the thought that he would not lose anything, he still decided to create this special item.
After opening the system shop, Su Yang took a look at the ingredients required for this special item. [Basa Fish]*500g, [Lime]*1, [Black Pepper]*10g, [Breadcrumbs]*50g…
‘Now that I look at the ingredients required for this special item, I really want to ask, System, are you really not trying to make me cook a dish of [Deep-Fried Basa Fish]?’
However, since the system had already listed out everything, Su Yang could not raise any objections. Hence, he recorded everything he needed before heading to the supermarket.
After two rounds of shopping at the supermarket, Su Yang bought everything and returned home to make this special item.
Opening the system shop, Su Yang clicked on the [Basa Fish Of Unknown Abilities]. After looking at the production video, he realized… ‘I’m actually using it to make a dis.h.!.+
‘This is such a joke!
‘Could this special item really be [Deep-Fried Basa Fish]? Can I become a Basa fish after eating it? Tsk.’
While complaining, Su Yang fixed the video in front of him and started to produce the special item according to the instructions on the video.
He first cut the Basa fish into slices, then salted them with salt and pepper to leave it to marinate for 30 minutes. Then, he broke an egg and stirred it evenly before rolling the fish slices in the egg mixture. Lastly, he covered it up with breadcrumbs.
After he was done, he picked up the frying pan that dropped in front of him after clicking [Begin Production]. Then, he tossed the Basa fish slices inside.
“Sizzle…” Along with the tempting aroma of the Basa fish on the frying pan, Su Yang gulped. In the end, he still managed to resist the temptation.
Halfway through, Su Yang threw the Little Monster Bean fragments into the fire according to the notification.
All of a sudden, the red flame suddenly soared into the sky and enveloped the entire pot before turning white.
Su Yang moved a stool over and waited patiently for the fire to fry the fish.
Soon, he saw a green tick before him.
Su Yang knew that he had completed the step of frying the fish.
As expected, with the appearance of the green tick, the flames gradually extinguished and a black charred substance appeared in the wok.
Su Yang was speechless.
‘Is this considered as a fail?’
Just as he was thinking about that, a notification popped up before him. [Item production completed. Please submit the recipe item.]
Looking at the notification before him, Su Yang felt… ‘This blob… Is probably the final product.’
With that thought in mind, he clicked [Submit].
