I Am The Biggest Amateur
"And let's not talk about amateurs, I'm the biggest amateur."
What Tangning was trying to say was, professionals weren't guaranteed to succeed and amateurs couldn't be compared to professionals.
After all, there were plenty of experts in this world that didn't like to show off.
Most importantly, she proved her point by using herself as an example. After all, she was an amateur in acting, managing and producing, but look how she turned out!
Everyone saw what she had done.
With this response, the reporters were silenced. After all, no one in the world was more convincing than Tangning herself.
So, was it necessary for the public to worry about the progress of 'The Ant Queen 2'? No!
No matter what obstacles Tangning faced, she always found a way out...
A little while later, the international martial arts superstar, Senior Long, finally accepted Tangning's invite to partake in 'The Ant Queen 2'. This made some fans quite excited. Tangning was amazing to be able to invite this person.
'Parasite' may have invited a famous actor, but 'The Ant Queen 2' wasn't bad either; they had an international martial arts superstar! As soon as the netizens saw this, the internet immediately exploded.
"It's been many years since I've seen Old Long and his cool moves!"
"Haha, it's going to be so interesting to see martial arts versus a monster!"
"I wonder what the storyline for 'The Ant Queen 2' will be... I'm really looking forward to it!"
Tangning had gotten used to turning tables; it had practically become a part of her life.
Of course, the presence of competition may have helped accelerate the progress of the sci-fi genre, but Springfall had used cheap moves, so Tangning had no choice but to strike back.
Meanwhile, Lu Che spent way too much time investigating Springfall's background.
"How complex must it be for you to spend an entire week on it?" Mo Ting was displeased with Lu Che's progress.
Lu Che was slightly stunned as he handed over the information in his hands, "I'm sorry, President, it's certainly wasted a lot of energy!"
"Springfall was established 16-years-ago; a considerably old company..."
"Get to the point, I don't want to hear this."
"The main point is, this agency was created by a subordinate of the Nangong Family. As you know, 22 years ago, the Nangong Family held a lot of power in Beijing. But, after a complicated series of events, the old chairman sent Elder Nangong to prison. 6 years later, the Nangong Family's subordinate, Qiu Jin, ended up forming Springfall Film and Television and deliberately keeping a low profile. But, recently, there have been rumors that the eldest grandson of the Nangong Family, Nangong Quan, is planning to return from the US and take over the reigns of Springfall."
"Nangong Quan?" Mo Ting seemed familiar with this person.
Nangong Quan was roughly 5 years older than Mo Ting. But, even at 10 years old, he was already a fierce and ruthless person. Apparently, he had moved to the US and got admitted to prison for an incident there. Who would have thought that his sentence was now complete!
"He's been labeled as an up-and-coming businessman. It's been 3 years since he left prison and he's already established a technology business in the States. He's had one woman in his life. That woman gave birth to a baby daughter for him, but she died during labor. Since then, he has not found another woman."
"President, this is what Bai Junye was trying to warn us about."
After listening to everything, a complicated gaze appeared in Mo Ting's eyes.
"Has he already returned to Beijing?"
"He's announced that he will be returning in a few days, but I reckon he's already back," Lu Che replied.
"Help Tangning organize an extra bodyguard to protect her at all times. Since he's back to get revenge, we have no choice but to wait for its arrival," Mo Ting said coldly. "20 years ago, my grandfather put his grandfather in prison. 20 years later, I can do the same for him!"
As Lu Che predicted, Nangong Quan did indeed return ahead of schedule. He even witnessed a few interesting scenes, including the way that Tangning caused trouble at Dynasty Hotel. This powerful and tattooed man developed a strong interest in Tangning; she actually had the ability to strike back at him!
"Daddy, I'm tired," Nangong Quan's daughter rubbed her eyes as she spoke. "Can I go to sleep now?"
Nangong Quan picked up his daughter, helped her have a bath and tucked her in to sleep.
When he met Mo Ting as a child, he used to think that he was a smart kid that didn't like to smile.
Who would have thought that 22 years later, he would have a married a wife like this...
"Daddy, I miss mummy..."
"Should I help you find a new mummy?" Nangong Quan asked his daughter. "She will definitely be good to my 'Little Eggshell'..."
"Then you better hurry up!"
He was a powerful man, yet he sat on his daughter's bedside with an incomparable gentleness. Now, he was the only one left in the Nangong Family.
Back when Elder Nangong was sent to prison, the entire family pitched in all the money they had, but failed to win back his freedom. And, Elder Mo was a lot to be thanked for that.
It had already been a few decades since that happened. Perhaps, he was getting old, so he realized it was time to get some things done as soon as possible. He didn't want to leave the grudges from his generation for his daughter to handle.
It seemed, the Mo Family were down on their luck!
After his daughter fell asleep, Nangong Quan went back to researching Mo Ting's family background. He discovered that Mo Ting had three kids; two of which were twins that were currently residing at his mother-in-law's home.
What a great opportunity...
But, of course, Mo Ting had already sensed the danger, so he increased security for both the Mo Family and the Tang Family.
Tangning didn't understand what was going on, so she asked Mo Ting about it and learned of the grudge between the Mo Family and Nangong Family.
"Grandfather didn't do anything wrong," Tangning responded. "If I was in his position, I would have done the same thing without regret."
"Yes, the old man didn't do anything wrong. But, Elder Nangong's admittance into prison cost the Nangong Family a lot. Nangong Quan's father was blackmailed, his mother was humiliated and his uncles suffered as well," Mo Ting explained. "So, I'm afraid, Nangong Quan is back to end things."
"Have you guys met?"
"Yes. In fact, if it wasn't for the incident that happened, we would actually be really good friends," Mo Ting said as he wrapped his arm around Tangning. "Nangong Quan was a quiet kid but he was already a ruthless character at a young age. He barely solved problems with words; he preferred violence!"
"I don't think Grandfather owes them anything..."
"But, Nangong Quan does not think that way."
This was the crux of the matter. If a grudge still existed in the heart of someone, it was bound to be dug up no matter how much time passed.
"What does he want then?"
Unfortunately, this was a question that only Nangong Quan could answer...
