Chapter 53 | I just want to be a salted fish quietly

Try to move me!

Although Lin Xian had already promised, Qi Jia still felt uneasy.

After sending Lin Xian and the others back to the dormitory, she had to leave.

Back in the dormitory, the six people sat on the sofa in the living room and the atmosphere was a little dignified.

Lin Xian opened his mouth and said, “Lao Wang, you are a native of Jinling. You should know a lot of people, right?”

“Brother Lin, are we going to fight now? It is not a good idea to smash people’s stores openly!” Wang Zejing misunderstood Lin Xian’s meaning and thought that Lin Xian wanted him to call someone to smash the restaurant.

Lin Xian waved his hand and said with a smile: “What are you thinking?”

“Smash the shop?”

“They are too cheap!”

“Don’t worry, fight or not, how many people can you call at most?”

Wang Zejing boasted: “I can call at least 50!”

Wang Zejing is a native of Jinling and his family has tens of millions of assets. It is normal to know a lot of people from the society.

Lin Xian smiled and said: “It doesn’t need to be a lot of people. A dozen or so will be enough. Let them come to the school gate at noon tomorrow. I will give them a job.”

“Brother Lin, what do you intend to do?” Wang Zejing asked with interest.

“You will know tomorrow. It’s already late and there will be military training tomorrow, so go to bed early!” Lin Xian smiled mysteriously.

What happened tonight is just a small thing for him. Although he feels uncomfortable, there is no need to disturb his rhythm.

Early next morning…

Lin Xian washed and walked out of the dormitory at seven o’clock.

When he came to the school grounds, Mu Wanqing had already started with her morning run.


“Good morning!”

After saying hello, the two of them jogged silently.

Half an hour later, Lin Xian slowed down and said: “I’m going to have breakfast now. See you tomorrow!”

“See you tomorrow!” Mu Wanqing waved her hand and said with a smile and walked towards the dormitory.

The military training in the morning is still a very boring period.

They were disbanded at eleven o’clock. Wang Zejing came up and said, “Brother Lin, there are eighteen people in total. All of them are waiting at the school gate.”

Lin Xian nodded and said, “Go, go with me and let’s get some cash first!”

In order for students to withdraw money, there are ATM machines in the school.

On the way, Lin Xian asked: “Lao Wang, are these people reliable?”

Wang Zejing said sternly: “Their character is not very good, but with money they do things.”

“That’s fine!”

After withdrawing 20,000 yuan, the two walked towards the school gate.

When they came to the gate of the school, they saw a group of people squatting under the shade of the trees, smoking boringly.

Seeing the two approaches, the group of people stood up immediately. The head of the group was tall and thin and looked like a big monkey. He smiled with a cigarette in his mouth and said, “Zejing, what good things you have for us?”

“Brother Hou, this is my classmate, Lin Xian. Today, Brother Lin has called for you.” Wang Zejing introduced Lin Xian.

Lin Xian took out the money from his pocket and said: “I heard from Lao Wang that you are a bit idle lately, so I want to give you a job.”

Hearing that, Houzi glanced at the 20,000 yuan and said with a grimace: “Brother, it is not that we don’t want to help. But we are all decent people. We don’t do illegal things.”

“This is serious work!”

Lin Xian pointed to the hotpot restaurant not far away and said, “Do you guys see that hotpot restaurant? The weather is too hot recently. If you have nothing to do, go to the restaurant and sit down. I will ask you this in exchange for this money. Go eat and make friends with the business owner. The business is not very good so it would be a great help for it not to close too soon.”

Houzi’s eyes lit up and then he responded immediately and understood what Lin Xian wants. He then took the money, nodded his head, and said, “Buddy, I, Houzi, will be your friend! Don’t worry, we will go to the store and help the business!”

He is okay to do this kind of thing.

And it doesn’t cost anything at all. It is not illegal. It is not also easy to make 20,000 yuan so only fools won’t do it!

“That’s good! Let’s go back now!” Lin Xian waved his hand and turned to Wang Zejing and signaled him to go back.

On the way back, Wang Zejing was very confused so he asked: “Brother Lin, what on earth do you want to do? Do you want Houzi and the others to mess up things there?”

Lin Xian patted him on the shoulder and said: “If anything is messed up. We will know in a few days!”


After getting the money, Houzi first distributed 500 yuan to each person and then waved his hand and said, “Brothers, let us start working!”

A group of 18 people walked into the hotpot restaurant mightily.

Seeing so many people entering the store, the middle-aged boss first looked happy.

But as soon as he saw their faces, he felt that something might be wrong.

After entering the store, the people quickly dispersed and each occupied a table.

Soon, more than a dozen tables in the restaurant were occupied by them.

“Waiter, order!”

Brother Hou who was smoking a cigarette poured himself a cup of tea leisurely.

The waiter scanned the lobby and asked: “How many people are there in total?”

“Are you blind?! I’m the only one!” Houzi said angrily.

The waiter held back his anger and asked, “What would you like to eat?”

“Give me some peanuts first! I will have enough time to order later!” Houzi said, pointing to a plate of peanuts on the menu for ten yuan.

The waiter had noticed that something was wrong and stood in his place and did not move.

Upon seeing this, Houzi took out a lump of banknotes and smashed it on the table. He raised his eyebrows and said, “What? Afraid I can’t pay!?”

“Okay, please wait a moment!”

The waiter turned and walked towards the checkout counter.

Others also looked through the menu modestly. They either ordered a plate of stir-fried vegetables or century egg. They cost not more than ten yuan.

In the cash register, the waiter whispered: “Boss, do you want me to call the police?”

“That is useless!” The boss shook his head and said with a gloomy expression.

It’s just normal. People come and eat. If there is no fight or trouble, then what is the use of calling the police?

Call the police because people order cheap food?

Isn’t that funny?

“I’ll take care of it!”

The boss took a deep breath and took out two packs of cigarettes from the drawer.

Then he came to sit down in front of Houzi and put the cigarette on the table: “I’m sorry if our service is not that good. Here you can have two packs of cigarettes. Running a small business is not easy. How about changing places to have a meal?”

Houzi glanced at him and said, “Boss, your restaurant is a bit slow. I only ordered for a plate of peanuts and I had been waiting for so long for it to be served.”

Seeing that Houzi didn’t give him a face, the boss only showed a forced smile.

Qiangzi was holding a kitchen knife and rushed out from the kitchen and asked with a grim expression: “Boss, are they here to make trouble?”

Houzi sneered, leaned forward, and said, “Come on. Go ahead and try to move me!”

It is okay for Qiangzi to scare students. But he won’t really dare to stab people with a knife even if his courage is multiplied by ten times!
