I Started As A Novel Villain - Chapter 88
“Talk, why did you contact me?” Ye Fei spoke faintly.
He looked around; there were few customers in the cafe, and no one was near them, allowing Ye Fei and Li Xiangyun to talk freely.
Li Xiangyun hurriedly said, “Young master Ye, I was actually at the bar yesterday, but it was too late to send you a message.”
Ye Fei waved his hand, and spoke casually, “It’s fine.”
He didn’t expect Li Xiangyun to give him information anytime and anywhere, which was not realistic at all.
After all, spies only need to play a major role once or twice. Furthermore, as long as there is vital information to be conveyed, Ye Fei would be able to strike a fatal blow to Chen Luo.
Seeing that Ye Fei didn’t seem to blame him, Li Xiangyun was relieved immediately.
Yesterday’s incident happened so suddenly and he really didn’t have a chance to alert him in advance.
Li Xiangyun then diverted the topic, “Chen Luo has been moving a lot lately, and I’m not sure how he knows so many renowned people in Yanjing.”
Ye Fei simply nodded when he heard this.
This was what he expected, he knew very well and didn’t panic at all about it.
The so-called Yanjing renowned families Chen Luo visited were considerably inferior to the Ye family, and because there were only a handful of them, there was nothing to be concerned about.
Only a few Yanjing giants, such as the Lei family and the two big shots who owe Chen Luo’s master a favor, warrant Ye Fei’s attention.
Although Ye Fei was calm, Li Xiangyun was frightened.
Li Xiangyun didn’t know the details of Chen Luo, only that he was Duan Qizheng’s younger brother, but the details were not clear.
He had thought that Chen Luo was just a hillbilly who came out of the ravine, but who knew that Chen Luo knew such rich men in Yanjing!
Li Xiangyun was shocked.
Especially with Lei Haoran yesterday, there aren’t many people in Yanjing who aren’t aware of the Lei family; they’re not necessarily lower in stature than the Ye family, but the problem is that Lei Haoran recognized Chen Luo as a brother!
This made Li Xiangyun shiver, suddenly discovering Chen Luo’s strength.
He hurriedly made an appointment with Ye Fei.
One aspect was to tell Ye Fei what happened to him yesterday. On the other hand, he was panicking now!
Seeing Li Xiangyun’s expression, Ye Fei probably knew what he was thinking, as he said lightly, “Li Xiangyun, are you scared?.”
“Young master Ye, I-i am indeed a little worried.” Li Xiangyun said, shivering a little.
Li Xiangyun discovered the ultimate truth that he couldn’t afford to offend Ye Fei or Chen Luo.
Looking at his chess piece expression, Ye Fei took out a black bank card that he had prepared a long time ago, handed it to Li Xiangyun, and said, “This card contains ten million yuan, take it.”
Li Xiangyun’s eyes sparkled with immediate greed, but he pretended to be hesitant.
Ye Fei then gently touched his chest and said coldly, “Follow me, money is not an issue, you should be very clear about this. Furthermore, now that you’ve been my spy, there’s no going back; we’re all in the same boat. If it is discovered that you betrayed Chen Luo or Duan Qizheng, you should be aware of how awful your fate will be.”
Hearing his words, Li Xiangyun shivered again, his eyes flashed with horror.
Ye Fei was right. He had no way out.
Li Xiangyun gritted his teeth and nodded.
“Whether it’s Chen Luo or the Lei family, I have my people to deal with it, you don’t have to worry at all,” Ye Fei said, noticing Li Xiangyu’s expression change. “Moreover, Chen Luo had always moved within my calculations.”
When Li Xiangyun saw Ye Fei’s confident look, he became even more convinced that Ye Fei’s tactics were truly more intelligent than Chen Luo’s.
In truth, Li Xiangyun also believed that Chen Luo was not Ye Fei’s opponent, but he couldn’t figure out where Chen Luo gained so many contacts.
This had taken Li Xiangyu by surprise and caused him to reevaluate his stance.
“You keep doing your job; I’ve implanted a few guys on Chen Luo’s side who will work with you when necessary.” Ye Fei responded lightheartedly.
Listening to his comments and realizing that he had put other individuals near Chen Luo, Li Xiangyun felt uneasy, bent his head, and spoke more respectfully.
“I see, Young Master Ye.” In actuality, Ye Fei did not place anybody near Chen Luo; he was only fooling Li Xiangyun.
After hearing what Ye Fei stated, Li Xiangyun became even more terrified of deceiving Ye Fei when it came to informing him of Chen Luo’s action.
“Well, is there anything else?” Ye Fei asked.
As expected, Li Xiangyun was much more honest, and gave an account of some of the news he had recently heard.
One of the messages he retold was quite useful.
According to Li Xiangyun’s re-collection, Chen Luo has recently prepared to research and produce a kind of Chinese medicine cosmetics, which is similar to powder for removing scars.
He intends to put it into production in Meiling International, where he expects to make a fortune as well.
Chen Luo also requires a large sum of money right now, especially since he intends to target the Su and Ye families.
Ye Fei paid close attention to Li Xiangyu, who had delivered the information, and shortly after, an idea formed in his thoughts.
He was thinking about how to set up a bait for Chen Luo, but then Ye Fei understood how.
“Well, I can do it.” Ye Fei raised his chin slightly with his palm, insuring a thoughtful stance.
“Young Master Ye, then I’ll go first if there’s nothing else to do,” Li Xiangyun said.
“Well, I won’t see you often in the future, and I’ll contact you if I need information.” Ye Fei’s voice was icy.
“Yes, Young Master Ye.” Li Xiangyun then got up from his seat and quickly walked towards the exit.
As for Ye Fei, he drank the latte in the cup and stayed in the coffee shop for a while, sorting out his thoughts.
Chen Luo planned to research and produce a new scar removal medicine powder. This reminded Ye Fei of certain events that happened in the original book.
For instance, Chen Luo did use his superb medical skills to configure and invent a kind of scar-removing powder called “‘Jade Bee Powder”
After the jade bee powder went on the market, it was well received because of its first-class effect in removing scars and whitening, so it quickly became popular all over the country and earned a lot of money for Chen Luo.
Now, it seemed that Chen Luo was ready to develop it.
If Chen Luo came up with the jade bee powder in a day, then Su Qingzhu’s company Hongyan Makeup would be in a tough spot.
“It’s a pity that Chen Luo ran into me. I remember the formula of the jade bee powder clearly.” Ye Fei remembered the whole plot of the original book, and the corners of his mouth quickly rose.
He thought of a good way to kill Chen Luo’s source of income.
The first step in his grand plan had taken motion.
