Xiao Churan was a little confused by Ye Chen’s words, but did not have any doubts out of her trust in him.
So, she then said to Ye Chen, “Honey, then why don’t you send me to the Jinling International Hotel, where both Kairi and Miss Zhan live, and I’ll give my gift to Kairi first.”
“Good.” Ye Chen nodded and smiled, “Send you to the Jinling International Hotel, and I’ll go and take care of this batch of allotments.”
After dropping off Xiao Churan, Ye Chen immediately drove to Buckingham Palace.
On the way to Buckingham Palace, Ye Chen called his old husband, Xiao Changkun, and just after he got through, Ye Chen asked him, “Dad, can you still contact that Zhang Ermao who specializes in selling antiques on the antique street?”
Xiao Changkun said resentfully, “Don’t mention that Zhang Ermao, later on I received some good things and looked for him several times, but he always disappeared with me, and later even changed his mobile phone number, I heard that this grandson is still doing business in the antique street, but the whole world can find him, but I can’t find him, it’s really strange.”
Ye Chen couldn’t help but laugh dumbly and teased, “Then I guess Zhang Ermao is deliberately avoiding you.”
Xiao Changkun asked in return, “Then why do you think he’s avoiding me? I haven’t provided him with goodies too often.”
Ye Chen said to himself, “The pair of rags you bought, Zhang Ermao still had to pay a big price to collect them, one way or another, the little money Zhang Ermao earned by cheating, almost all of it went into your pocket.
But he did not say more, so he said with a smile: “I guess this Zhang Ermao a bit think not understand, I will find other people to inquire about it.”
Xiao Changkun asked curiously, “Ye Chen, what are you looking for Zhang Ermao for?”
Ye Chen said casually, “Oh, a friend wanted to buy some antiques, so I thought of him.”
Xiao Changkun was busy saying, “Zhang Ermao doesn’t have anything good in his hands, why don’t you ask your friend to go to Jiqing Hall and buy it, the stuff there is still of a higher grade.”
“Okay.” Ye Chen casually agreed and said, “Then I’ll tell him to go, I’ll hang up now ah dad.”
After hanging up Xiao Changkun’s phone, Ye Chen called Hong Wu again.
Once the call came through, he instructed, “Hong Wu, tell your little brother to go to the antique street and find a guy called Zhang Ermao for me, tell him I’m looking for him for something and ask him to bring all his counterfeit antiques to meet me at Buckingham Palace.”
Hong Wu did not understand what Ye Chen’s intention was, but he immediately agreed and spoke, “Yes, Master Ye, wait a moment, I’ll have someone go and find him.”
Hong Wu’s men were present in all walks of life in Jinling, and they were present in all corners of the city, and in such a profitable market as the Antique Street, his men were even more involved.
Therefore, when Hong Wu made a phone call, the head of the Antique Street immediately went to the street and found Zhang Ermao, who was setting up a stall.
Zhang Ermao was not afraid of anyone in Jinling but Xiao Changkun, so when he saw the head of the antique street coming, not only was he not afraid, but he even went up to him and greeted him warmly, “Why is Brother Kui free to come to my stall?”
The man known as Brother Kui, whose full name is Dong Kui, is a subordinate of Ma Zhongliang, one of the Four Heavenly Kings of Hongwu.
His territory was the area around Antique Street, and small traders like Zhang Ermao, who liked to cheat people, had to rely on Dong Kui to cover them up on a regular basis so that they wouldn’t be beaten up.
Dong Kui looked at Zhang Ermao and asked, “Zhang Ermao, let me ask you, do you know Master Ye Chen?”
