“I hope that you can be more formal later. After all, you represent our Alice casino. I don’t want to be laughed at by others.” Alice looked at Yang Ming and sighed helplessly.
“If he is willing to gamble with me, then just gamble with me; if he is unwilling, then I won’t force it,” Yang Ming said with an indifferent smile. “Of course, since he has agreed, I think he won’t care about these little details, right?”
“Probably, yes…” Alice felt that Yang Ming didn’t look like a person from the upper-class at all. He was even out of place in the upper-class society. If one said that he was low-key, he was still very high-profile. If he were high-profile, he was high-profile in the wrong places.
One could say that he was playing to the crowd, but it didn’t seem so. However, it could be seen from the video in Macau that Yang Ming really liked to act like a bad*ss…
“Do you need me to arrange to play the music from the God of Gamblers when you walk in? Mr. God of Gamblers?” Alice curled her lips. She didn’t know why she couldn’t help herself from mocking Yang Ming when she looked at Yang Ming’s tired expression.
“D*mn, really? You even know I have this interest?” Yang Ming pretended to be shocked and looked at Alice. He widened his eyes. “So if you have already prepared it, then let’s play it!”
Alice, this time, was completely dumbfounded by Yang Ming’s shamelessness! Is this guy really changing his views according to the circumstances? I just simply sneered at him. How would I find the music from the God of Gamblers for him?
Seeing Alice’s smile that was uglier than crying and sitting there stunned, Yang Ming was pleased in his mind. Little chick, you want to be shameless against me? You are still young…
” Oh ? What’s wrong with your expression? Is there some difficulty with this music?” Yang Ming asked as if he was surprised.
“No…” Alice controlled her emotions forcibly and said.
“Is there no difficulty, or is there no such music?” Yang Ming asked very irritably.
“…” Alice really wanted to kick Yang Ming to death, but she thought of the plan for the evening. There would be more opportunities later. She took a breath and said faintly, “No difficulty; I will arrange it.”
” Oh , I don’t mind if you can get a suit and a white scarf like the one that Gao Jing wore.” Yang Ming continued.
“… Okay.” Alice nodded with a blank expression. I will let you torment me first and satisfy you for the time being.
The car parked in the underground parking lot of the Alice Casino. When Alice got off, she was surrounded by a group of black bodyguards. Of course, Yang Ming was also surrounded.
It could be seen that these bodyguards must have been retired mercenaries, and they were very talented; of course, this was relative to ordinary people. They weren’t that threatening in Yang Ming’s eyes. Their skills were considered okay only for Yang Ming.
These people weren’t hostile, so Yang Ming didn’t make a move. They were escorted by the bodyguards through a dedicated passage to the elevator which took them to the top floor of the Alice casino.
At the top was the office area of the Alice Casino. There were no foreign guests here. They were Alice’s trusted aides. Therefore, after they got to the top, the bodyguards also spread out. They didn’t guard as strictly as before.
When they came to the door of a room, Alice opened the door and said, “Let’s take a break now. I will make some arrangements. When it’s time to enter the venue, I will call you.”
“Why do I feel like I am like your employee?” Yang Ming was a little dissatisfied with Alice’s commanding tone.
“Of course not.” Alice smiled. “Am I not arranging your requirements for you?”
“Alright, then I will take a nap. Call me after you get it done… Remember to knock on the door. I personally like to sleep naked. If you come in suddenly, I can’t guarantee what I will do!” Yang Ming said with a smile.
Alice glared at Yang Ming, closed the door, and went to work on her matters.
Lying in bed, Yang Ming certainly wasn’t going to sleep, but he was thinking about the issue of Alice. This chick made Yang Ming feel suspicious. This kind of feeling was unclear without any reason. In short, it made him uneasy.
Yang Ming didn’t know what Alice had done to cause him to doubt. In retrospect, there didn’t seem to be anything, but his heart just didn’t feel right. From Alice’s first appearance to her asking him to help her gamble, Yang Ming had a kind of unspeakable weird feeling.
My appearance in Europe was a coincidence… After Alice saw me, why did she investigate things related to me?
Although the Nancheng Casino’s incident in Macau couldn’t be said to be very confidential, at the very least, it wasn’t disclosed in large scale. Yang Ming didn’t believe that Alice would investigate each person she met…
What if Alice had seen the video of me gambling before? This is possible; although the probability is relatively small, it isn’t impossible. Maybe Alice saw my video in the Nancheng Casino before, and then she saw me in Europe… it’s not correct, right? It seems that when I first saw Alice, she didn’t know me, and she didn’t react at all when Old Buffon introduced me to her…
So, thinking up to here, Yang Ming felt Alice was more and more suspicious…
His phone rang, interrupting Yang Ming’s thoughts. Yang Ming took out his phone and looked. It was Li Qiang’s call.
“Hello? Li Qiang, what’s the matter?” Yang Ming picked up the phone.
“Kars agreed with our request to take back all the mines for a unified bidding, but there is a problem here…” As Li Qiang spoke up to here, he paused.
“What’s the problem?” Yang Ming asked.
“The bidding rules here are not the same as ours…” Li Qiang hesitated and said, “So, I wanted to ask, do we follow the rules in China or the unique rule here?”
“Not the same? What is the difference?” Yang Ming didn’t expect bidding would have so many different rules. He was shocked for a moment and asked.
“It is like this. Although there is also a closed bid auction, after the bid is announced, if someone can bid a higher price than the bid price, he is also eligible for mining management rights…” Li Qiang explained.
” Oh ? What is the difference between that and the auction?” Yang Ming frowned and asked baffled.
“No, there is still a difference.” Li Qiang said, “Brother Yang, you listen to me… The rule here is that if someone can give a higher price, then the winner of the winning bid can choose to give up or accept the challenge…”
“Accept the challenge? What challenge?” The more Yang Ming listened, the more he felt confused.
“Probably, it is the bad taste of the rich, and the law here is more lenient, so these people generally like wrestling…” Li Qiang said with a bitter smile, “To put it bluntly, the challenge is to have each side send out a death warrior of his own to duel. The winner will be the last successful bidder.”
“Underground black boxing?” Yang Ming was baffled and asked.
“It’s almost like this.” Li Qiang nodded and said.
“Well, just follow their way,” Yang Ming thought. This was a fair rule. It wouldn’t affect his own income, so he agreed. “Unless they thought that we’d change the rules.”
“Okay, I understand. I will prepare now and give them the last notice to let them prepare for the bid,” said Li Qiang.
When Li Qiang’s re-bidding notice was sent to the hands of the various mine owners, the mine owners who rarely contacted each other finally sat down in groups to discuss countermeasures.
“Mr. Murakami, what should we do? By making us re-bid, isn’t that asking for our lives?” A gold mine owner, Tiger, complained to a manganese mine owner.
“What can we do? Prepare the proposal, re-bid…” Mr. Murakami came here to mine gold. He wasn’t willing to cause trouble. Although this time he would re-bid, he might lose half of the money he earned in the first few years. But he also didn’t want to go against the local government.
“Why are you such a weakling?!” Tiger was so angry that he glared, “Re-bidding? How much am I going to lose? The hard work from my previous ten years has been in vain!”
“So, what about that? You can give up; you have already made a lot of money.” Mr. Murakami said.
“D*mn, you are such a coward!” Tiger couldn’t help but swear, “We have so many people. If we unite, our forces won’t be small. Why don’t we protest collectively?”
“Protest? What is there to protest? Can protesting work? Will they bother with you?” Mr. Murakami said disdainfully.
“Each of us has armed forces. We can form alliances. I don’t think they will dare to act rashly!” Tiger hummed, and didn’t bother about Mr. Murakami, but said to another mine owner, “Do you think so too, Siker?”
“I don’t think this is useful!” Siker snorted. “Don’t you know how powerful General Kars is? The armed forces that were stronger than us by a hundred times vanished instantly. Can we fight with them? I think Mr. Murakami is right. You need to understand reality, and hurry to make a proposal!”
Tiger also got carried away by anger. This time he was clear-headed after listening to both Murakami and Siker. Yes, so many armed forces were wiped out by General Kars. What else could they do to resist?
Most of the other mine owners were also like Tiger and others. At first, some people wanted to protest collectively, but they clearly understood what position they were in now after people threw a damper over them…
