"Huh? But... But it's Sunday today."
"Then inform everyone that there'll be a meeting."
Zhao Yuting asked, "What meeting?"
A strange glow flashed in Fang Xingjian's eyes as he thought, 'Since this is the Earth's parallel universe, then this place should also have some kind of connection with Miracle World's parallel world. I may be able to sense the location of my body after finding that connection.
'Then, as one of the wealthy influences in this world, the Fang Clan may know something about the current situation.'
Since Fang Xingjian had only just arrived in this world, he remained prudent.
He brought Zhao Yuting to the garage at the basement, frowned, and asked, "Where's my car?"
Zhao Yuting pointed to a black sports car in the distance and said, "It's this one."
Vroom vroom vroom!
The sports car went through the traffic like a black bolt of lightning as it headed toward the financial district in the middle of the city, attracting the gazes of countless people.
As they got nearer to the company building, the black sports car swerved in a long arc, bringing about a series of afterimages. Then it eventually came to a stop before the building amidst Zhao Yuting's screams.
"Sir, parking is not allowed here."
Two security guards immediately dashed over. However, Fang Xingjian tossed the keys to them and said, "Park the car for me."
Fang Xingjian's martial will swept by, and the eyes of the two security guards went into a daze. They felt as if the other party's words were extremely reasonable, and they obligingly went to park the car.
The moment Zhao Yuting got off the car, she grabbed onto the car for support and started vomiting. Fang Xingjian lifted his head to look at the building that was 30 floors high, and information about the Fang Tian Corporation circulated in his mind.
'Finance, foreign trade, real estate? Their areas of involvement are quite big. With the amount of weight they carry, it should be sufficient for me to check out some things.'
Relying on a Divine level expert's powerful martial will and brain power, Fang Xingjian spent only about three hours to understand the situation of the entire Fang Tian Corporation. He also borrowed the prowess of his martial will to control the managers from the various departments.
However, after a thorough understanding, he got to know that—although the Fang Tian Corporation he controlled was still a massive influence involved in finance, foreign trade, and real estate—someone had their eyes on it. A piece of land worth over one billion had been seized by the government, a large amount of their funds had been frozen, and the entire Fang Tian Corporation had a problem with the management of their liquid capital.
'I wanted to borrow Fang Tian Corporation's influence to help me find leads of the Miracle World. But by the looks of it, I'll have to first help the Fang Tian Corporation deal with this problem.'
At the thought of this, Fang Xingjian waved his hand, and an invitation that was at the side flew toward him.
This was a invitation to the birthday party of the Young Miss of Song Clan, a great clan in this city. The ones who had set their eyes on Fang Clan was this Song Clan. It was clear what their intentions were for them to be sending him an invitation.
Just as Fang Xingjian was looking at this invitation, the office door was slammed opened with a bang. A lady who had a resemblance to him walked in, dressed in office attire and sporting neat short hair. She was clearly one of those successful career women in the modern society.
This was Fang Xingjian's half-sister in this universe, Fang Xingyue.The two of them shared the same father.
Looking at Fang Xingjian made her felt extremely infuriated. "You changed your secretary again? Are you an idiot? If you want to look for women, can you look for them elsewhere? Even rabbits don't eat the grass next to their burrows. Do you know that all the female employees in the entire company are aware of your glorious achievements?"
As Fang Xingjian's half-sister, she had always disapproved with Fang Xingjian's actions. Furthermore, after their parents died in a car accident and the entire organization fell into the hands of this profligate son, his actions had become even more unacceptable and the organization's performance had plunged continuously.
Last year, he had even tried to make a pass at Song Clan's precious daughter, causing the Song Clan to keep on attacking them recently.
Thinking of this made Fang Xingyue even more infuriated. She looked at Fang Xingjian and said, "It's Miss Song's birthday party tonight. I went through a lot of trouble to get you this invitation. You must go and properly offer your apologies. With the weight that the Song Clan carries in the government, they'll be able to do us in with just a little pinky. Do you understand?"
"Carries a strong weight in the government? I understand." Fang Xingjian nodded while thinking, 'Then I'll bring the Song Clan under control.'
Fang Xingjian then lifted his head and looked at Fang Xingyue. She was clearly more capable and experienced compared to the Fang Xingjian of this world, and probably knew more things.
He suddenly snapped his fingers, and the office desk flew up.
"Have you seen extraordinary strength before?"
Seeing this scene, Fang Xingyue's countenance turned pale. However, she still maintained calm, "What tricks have you pulled this time around? Magic? Autostereoscopy?"
Fang Xingjian smiled, and with a tap of his finger, Fang Xingyue started floating up. She screamed out in disbelief, "Fang Xingjian! What have you done?!"
Shaking his head, Fang Xingjian sent his martial will sweeping out, but Fang Xingyue had already fallen unconscious.
'She doesn't know? Is it because her level isn't high enough, or that this world really doesn't have any extraordinary strength?
'If even the Song Clan, a top notch clan in a central city, is unaware of it... then it might really be that there is no extraordinary strength in this world.'
When Fang Xingyue's brows twitched and she woke up, she realized that she was seated in a black sedan with Fang Xingjian right next to her, looking at his phone. The webpages on the phone kept on changing, displaying many search results for entries such as extraordinary strength, superpowers, and Conferred Knights.
Fang Xingyue experienced a slight headache when she suddenly recalled that astonishing scene back in the office. She stared at Fang Xingjian with her eyes wide open and asked, "What did you do earlier?"
"Hmmm?" Fang Xingjian shrugged, not even turning his head. "I only asked you a few questions."
Fang Xingyue opened her mouth, starting to doubt if she had been too tired and had started to see things.
Just then, Zhao Yuting, who was in the driver's seat, stopped the car and said, "Boss, we've arrived."
Fang Xingjian got off the car and looked at Fang Xingyue who was still in the car. He said, "Come on. We've arrived at the Song Clan's residence."
Fang Xingyue went into a daze. She looked at the luxurious residence and said, stunned, "It's already night time? We've arrived at the Song Clan?" She lowered her head and realized that she had changed into a gown.
Zhao Yuting was wearing a blue gown and said, "Manager Fang, I was the one who changed your clothes."
Fang Xingjian could not be bothered with them and just said, "Come on, let's go. Hurry up."
Fang Xingyue still felt that that her head was very groggy as she followed Zhao Yuting and walked toward the gathering in the manor.
Entering the huge hall, they saw that the people in it were all reputable businessmen, government officials, scholars, and even some first and second class celebrities.
It was apparent that many people had come to the Miss Song's birthday party in order to get into the Song Clan's good books.
Zhao Yuting appeared extremely unconfident and unnatural in this gathering. Fang Xingyue, on the other hand, had regained her composure and blended in naturally, engaging others in conversations.
However, many members of the high society were already relishing in delight at the Fang Tian Corporation's current situation. Most of them kept a careful distance from Fang Xingyue and did not dare to get close to her at all for fear that the Song Clan might misunderstand and deal with them as well.Direct translation of a Chinese saying. Although rabbits are herbivores, they do not eat the grass next to their own burrows since the grass nearby helps them to hide their burrows. If they were to eat the grass nearby, they would be revealing themselves to their enemies, and would simply be courting death. This saying implies the meaning that one should maintain good relationships with their neighbors and not be doing bad deeds right outside their own homes/in their own vicinity or neighborhood.
