779 A Mysterious Man Surfaced
“Uh…” Lin Yi paused. “Wine has to be cold to be enjoyed. I’ll ask you out again in a few days. Let’s get drunk then.”
Yan Ci smiled and hung up.
Lin Yi threw his phone to the side. This matter was basically over. All that was left was for them to contact him.
Later on, Lin Yi called Sun Baoguo and asked about the situation at the scene. He gave everyone an additional 1,000 yuan as compensation.
Although they were extras, he still had to pay the labor fees.
After making arrangements for Sun Baoguo, Lin Yi drove to Chaoyang Group and picked Ji Qingyan up from work.
Dinner was prepared jointly by Lin Yi and Ji Qingyan.
Ji Qingyan was in charge of washing and cutting the vegetables, while Lin Yi was in charge of cooking. The two of them had a tacit understanding of their respective tasks.
Ring ring ring!
After dinner, Lin Yi planned to return to his room to work on Chip 3.0, but before the computer could turn on, the phone in his pocket was ready.
“Chief Chen,” Lin Yi smiled.
“Chief Lin, I didn’t disturb your rest, did I?” Asked the police chief, Chen Bingsheng.
“No, no. I just finished eating.”
“It’s like this. The person called Wang Yaxin said that he wants to see you. I wanted to ask your opinion on how you want to deal with him.”
“Alright, I’ll come over now. Thank you for your hard work, Chief Chen.”
“What work did I do? We’re all on the same side. If there’s anything, just let me know.”
After hanging up on Chen Bingsheng, Lin Yi changed into casual sportswear.
“Are you going out?” Ji Qingyan asked.
“I’m going to the detention center. I’ll be back in a minute. Keep the door locked at home.”
“I understand. Drive safely at night.”
Ji Qingyan had never asked much about Lin Yi.
This was because he had done too many things and could not explain all of them.
Therefore, he was fine as long as he returned safely.
After informing Ji Qingyan, Lin Yi drove to the detention center. Chen Bingsheng was also there.
“Chief Chen, you’ve worked hard. It’s already so late, yet I had to trouble you with this.”
“Fighting evil is my responsibility. I have to thank you for reporting these people.”
The two of them laughed and chatted for a while. After putting on a show, Lin Yi went back to work.
He met Wang Yaxin and Sun Yongming in the interrogation room.
The two of them looked even more miserable than Lin Yi had imagined.
Their shirt and suits were covered in dust, and their hair was messy. They looked like a couple of refugees who had escaped from an earthquake.
Seeing Lin Yi, the two of them felt like they were sitting on pins and needles, not knowing how to interact with him.
“Didn’t the two of you say you wanted to see me? Why are you mute now?”
“President Lin, we know our mistake. Please give us a chance.”
Now, the two of them were completely terrified and did not dare to show their temper in front of Lin Yi.
Firstly, it was because of Lin Yi’s endless resources. Secondly, he still had the recording from before.
If the news spread during the day, it would be a fatal blow to the company’s reputation. The company’s shares would also plummet and soon be swallowed up by other companies.
Furthermore, they had even arrogantly said that they had done many illegal things.
If this was leaked, not only would the company suffer, but they might also face jail time.
If that was the case, all his years of hard work would have been in vain.
“I despise people like you the most. You think you’re awesome at first, but you admit defeat not long after.” Lin Yi dug his ears impatiently.
“If it were a woman, I wouldn’t say anything. But, isn’t it embarrassing for a man to behave like this?”
“Yes, yes, yes. Mr. Lin is right. We know our mistake. Don’t lower yourself to our level.”
“If you guys had adopted this kind of attitude during the day, I wouldn’t have said anything. But it’s too late now.”
The two of them knelt in front of Lin Yi with tears on their eyes.
“Mr. Lin, please give us another chance. We’ll tell you whatever you want to know and we’re willing to compensate you accordingly, as long as you don’t release that video.”
“Since you’re so sincere, I won’t stand on ceremony.” Lin Yi said.
“One of you is manufacturing phone screens, and the other is manufacturing accessories. Coincidentally, I want to make phones. If you can supply us for free, I won’t pursue this matter.”
“Supply for free…”
Hearing this, Wang Yaxin showed an exaggerated expression.
The cost of a phone screen was much higher than the cost of a phone charger.
If his Tonghua Electronics were to supply him free of charge, it would have a serious impact on his own interests.
Unfortunately, right now, he had no other choice but to agree.
“I promise you!” Wang Yaxin gritted his teeth and said.
“I agree too.”
Sun Yongming’s emotions were relatively stable because he had not lost much. He would not suffer any serious losses.
“Then let’s talk about something else.” Lin Yi said.
“I want to know who instigated you. Tell me who this person is.”
The two of them panicked. No one expected him to suddenly ask the most fatal question.
Even so, at this point, they knew that they had no room for negotiation in front of Lin Yi.
“On the second day after Tonghua Electronics was acquired, a person called Zhang Haiyong came to us and wanted us to carve up Tonghua Electronics’ employee base. His goal was to prevent you from starting work smoothly.”
“What position does this person hold at Jaewon Television?”
As soon as these words were spoken, surprise appeared on both their faces.
It turned out Lin Yi already knew that the people from the television station were behind this!
“He’s the deputy general manager of Jaewon Television. His name is Zhang Haiyong. Moreover, he promised us that as long as we completed the task he gave us, he would give us a portion of the orders for the phone screen and cell phone accessories. That’s why we agreed to his request.”
“Where is this man?.”
“I’m not too sure about that,” Wang Yaxin said. “After all, there’s still a gap between us and the television station.”
“The two of you are really funny. You know that there’s a gap between you and the television station, but you don’t know the gap between you and Lingyun Group?”
“Lingyun Group is a big company, and we really can’t afford to offend them. We don’t have any business dealings with them, and we’re not small either, so we chose to help the station.”
The reason why the two of them dared to do this was because they still treated the Lingyun Group as a simple company.
As far as they knew, Lin Yi had always done things alone and didn’t have a deep social background. He was on a completely different level from the television station, which was why they dared to do this.
If they knew that Lin Yi was secretly building a photolithography machine, or had known that Lin Yi had set up a world-class pharmaceutical research center, they might not have had the guts to do so.
“It doesn’t matter if we don’t know where he is. You should have his contact information, right?”
“Yes.” Wang Yaxin said with difficulty.
“All right, give me his number.”
Wang Yaxin had no choice but to pass Zhang Haiyong’s phone number to Lin Yi.
“Mr. Lin, we’ve done what you said. Can you let us go back now?”
“Since we’re already here, you should stay here for the night and experience life in the detention center.” Lin Yi said.
“By the way, when you get back tomorrow, I want you to sort out the details of this matter and email it to me.”
“Alright, alright, alright. We’ll go back and do this. We definitely won’t forget anything.”
Lin Yi nodded and turned to leave with a smile.
“Jaewon TV, oh Jaewon TV, I didn’t expect you to act so fast. It’s time to exchange blows.”
