Yang Chen was in a good mood after burning down the ancestral hall and he drove all the way back to Zhonghai. The hot shower he took got him excited so he messed around with Mo Qianni before falling asleep.
The next morning, Mo Qianni went downstairs to make breakfast with rosy cheeks while Yang Chen received a phone call from Yang Gongming.
“Have you thought of cleaning up your mess?” Yang Gongming’s tone was flat.
Yang Chen scratched his head, “Old man, are you afraid?”
“Hmph,” Yang Gongming sneered, “The First Senior Official called me into his office. I have not been to his office for six years, you dragged me into this mess.”
“First Senior Official? He deals with this sort of thing?”
Yang Chen was startled, reminded of the person that always showed up on the news. The whole world might be familiar with him but Yang Chen himself had never met him in Beijing. He seemed pretty friendly but really mysterious, especially since he was superior to the four major clans.
Yang Chen thought he didn’t want to get involved with those matters because he didn’t want to stir up any unnecessary trouble, but he must have been wrong.
“If he’s taking the initiative to ask me about it, it must be a dire matter involving the core of the nation. You ruined the Meng clan’s ancestral hall and I doubt this would end peacefully.

Yang Gongming chuckled, “Duh, I’ve told the First Senior Official that I know nothing about this. You did it by yourself. I wouldn’t stand back and watch if the Meng clan dared to bother us over this. As for you…stop thinking about killing others. Sometimes, it doesn’t matter who’s right or wrong. You need to look into the actual problem.”
Yang Chen furrowed his brow, “What do you mean?”
Yang Gongming hung up the phone without explaining.
Yang Chen cursed and threw the phone away. Yang Gongming was always doing this, never finishing his story and forcing him to think about it himself.
After Yang Chen had freshened up and gotten dressed, he remembered the treasure he stole from the ancestral hall.
He took out the red box from his space ring and opened it but the thing inside m
