    After finishing the call with Fang Xuan, Wang Haoran made a call to Wang Xiang while he still had some time.

    “Any news? Do we know who those gangsters are coming for?” Wang Haoran knowingly asked.

    “It turns out that it wasn’t aimed at our family. To be precise, it’s a plot with the aim of kidnapping Qin Kai’s daughter – Qin Yunhan.” Wang Xiang responded.

    “Oh, so that’s what it is.” 

    Wang Haoran pretended to be surprised before asking again, “Do we know who the ringleader is?”

    “I don’t know. The mastermind behind all this was very careful; they only ever sent a contact to talk to them. Those gangsters say they didn’t even know of any such figures. They didn’t even see the contact in person, receiving instructions purely through call.”

    “Which is to say we’ve got no clue…” Wang Haoran sighed.

    “Not quite.”

    “What do you mean?”

    “The gangsters may have never met the contact in person, but they do know that he’s nicknamed the ‘Eagle’. After a bit of inquiry by the bureau, they learned that this Eagle is a man under Black Peony.”

    “Who is Black Peony?”

    “A woman who is more ruthless than men. She is very popular among the underground forces in Qingling City. She’s someone who knows how to instil fear in peoples’ hearts. However, she’s gradually cleaned up her act in recent years and started to do some legitimate business.”

    “Where does this Black Peony usually operate?”

    “There’s a bar on 19th Street in Qingling City. She opened it herself, and it’s said she’s normally there at night.” However, after Wang Xiang answered his question, he grew a bit curious:

    “My boy, why do you ask?”

    “Nothing, just curious.” Wang Haoran gave a vague response. However, at that moment, the class bell rang. Taking advantage of this, he said:

    “I have to go to class now, so I’ll be hanging up. Bye.”

    “Take care, my boy.”

    After hanging up the phone, Wang Haoran returned to his seat in the classroom, thinking.

    ‘According to what Wang Xiang said, the mastermind behind Qin Yunhan’s kidnapping should be related to Black Peony.’

    ‘Even if she herself isn’t the mastermind, then she should at least know who it is.’

    ‘This Black Peony would prove crucial In resolving Qin Kai’s troubles and destroying Xiao Yifeng’s career as a bodyguard.’

    ‘Looks like I’m going to the Black Peony Bar today.’

    Wang Haoran discretely made up his mind.

    As he thought of this, he also opened up his attribute panel and checked his Villain Points counter.

    ‘That bar would likely prove to be a dragon pond and a tiger’s den. If I want to go there, it’ll be best if I improve my strength.’

    He’d accumulated a total of 3,200 Villain Points.

    Wang Haoran spent 3,000 villain points, exchanging them for 6 more years’ worth of [Internal Strength].

    His attributes panel was updated:

    [Host: Wang Haoran] 

    [Combat value: 1099]

    [Charm: 268]

    [Villain Halo: 736]

    [Villain Points: 200]

    His Combat Value increased to a total of 1099, a considerably large improvement.

    Wang Haoran’s overall physical fitness, reaction time, and striking speed have all been greatly enhanced.

    If it’s within 30 meters, it doesn’t matter if the enemy is wielding a gun in their hands. He’ll be able to dodge on time, approach the enemy easily, and finish them off nicely and quickly.

    A few minutes before six in the evening…

    Wang Haoran came to the school gate as scheduled.

    A taxi and a Ferrari stopped in front of the school gate at about the same time.

    Fang Heng arrived in the taxi.

    The Ferrari carried Fang Xuan.

    “Sister? Why are you here? And you’re driving such a cool car?!” Fang Heng was surprised.

    Fang Xuan opened the Ferrari’s trunk, revealing some exquisitely packed boxes:

    “Our boss asked me to deliver some meals to her son. For convenience, the boss asked me to drive her car.”

    After her explanation, she was ‘totally’ curious and asked her brother, “What about you; what are you doing here?”

    Fang Heng gestured to the two-foot-tall vase wrapped in a soft cloth in his arms, happily saying:

    “I got another treasure. Last time, he told me that he would accept the treasures I found in the future. Why wouldn’t I take up his offer?”

    While speaking, Fang Heng glanced at Wang Haoran.

    Seeing her brother’s happy expression, Fang Xuan couldn’t help but sigh. Regardless, she pretended to be surprised, smiling.

    Wang Haoran took the different expressions of the two siblings in his eyes and smiled in secret before speaking with a straight face, “Open it for me to see.”

    Fang Heng put a soft cloth on the ground to cushion it before carefully placing the vase on it.

    Wang Haoran squatted on the ground, pretending to examine it as if to judge its authenticity.

    After a while, he slowly said:

    “It does look like blue-and-white porcelain from the Tang Dynasty. Name your price.”

    Naturally, he was merely repeating Fang Heng’s information.

    However, he couldn’t help it. He truly didn’t know anything about these treasures.

    “I’ve already spoken to a few experts, and they say that the market price of this blue-and-white porcelain is around 8 million.” Fang Heng said.

    “8 million?!” Fang Xuan couldn’t help but raise her voice.

    ‘My brother truly is stupid! His appetite is growing bigger and bigger. Does he truly think that this broken vase costs 8 million?’

    Wang Haoran’s expression was the same as usual. In fact, he concealed a bit of joy.

    After all, the more expensive the vase was, the more he’d earn.

    “I expect that we’ll be cooperating for quite some time. Is it really appropriate for you to sell this to me at the market price?” Rather than simply agreeing like last time, Wang Haoran bargained a bit.

    After all, if it were too easy, then Fang Heng would grow suspicious.

    “Name your price, and I’ll see if I can accept it.” Fang Heng said after a bit of hesitation.

    “7.5 million.” Wang Haoran slightly lowered it.

    “500,000 is too large of a cut. I can only accept around 200,000.”

    “Let’s compromise, then. How does 7.7 million sound?”

    Fang Heng was silent for a few seconds before nodding: “Okay.”

    Although he sold it for less than its market price, it will take quite a bit of time to sell it for 8 million. If he could sell it quickly with only a loss of 300,000, then it wasn’t that bad of a deal.

    After all, the other party promised to buy long-term, so a small loss such as this is quite acceptable to Fang Heng.

    “Then I’ll transfer the money to you.”

    Seeing that Fang Heng had agreed, Wang Haoran began to fumble with his phone.

    After a while, they found that they couldn’t complete the transfer.

    “Is there something wrong with your account? I can’t seem to send the money.” Wang Haoran said.

    “That’s not possible.” Fang Heng immediately questioned:

    “You’re not trying to cheat me out of my blue-and-white porcelain, are you?”

    “Ask your sister how much my family’s assets are worth. Do you think I’d need to lie to you for a mere 7.7 million?” Wang Haoran sneered.

    “Xiao Heng, maybe there is something wrong with your account.” Fang Xuan said, helping Wang Haoran.

    “That’s impossible. I recently withdrew some money, so everything should be fine.” Fang Heng was confused.

    “Let’s do it this way.” Wang Haoran felt that the time had come, so he made his suggestion:

    “I’ll try to transfer the money to your sister’s account.”

    “Okay, go for it.” Fang Heng nodded without hesitation.
