Genius Daddy in the City - Chapter 537
Chapter 537: Humans Strive for Pride, While Buddha Strives for An Incense
Ye Chen’s heart ached when he looked at the cute little baby who was crying silently with an aggrieved face.
He reached out to wipe the tears off his daughter’s face. He picked her up and walked toward the competition hall, “Let’s go, daddy will get you an explanation.”
This so-called children’s art competition turned out to be allowing a young man from a wealthy family to win the first prize. Meanwhile, the little girl Mengmeng who did the best only won the consolation prize!
No parent could accept this, let alone Ye Chen who loved his daughter deeply.
Although he knew that there were all kinds of dirty secrets behind these so-called official competitions, he did not expect them to be so dirty.
It was not an exaggeration to describe it as ridiculous.
The expression on Cang Shuxue’s pretty face changed when she noticed something was wrong with his expression. She followed him immediately. “Mr. Ye, don’t do anything rash!”
“That’s right, Brother Ye. Let’s talk things out nicely. Don’t be rash!” Li Yongmin was also stunned. He grabbed the little fatty and followed immediately.
Both of them thought Ye Chen could not control his emotions because he was angered by the outcome of the competition.
“Don’t worry, I only want an explanation.”
Ye Chen smiled lightly, but his gaze was cold.
A middle-aged man carried his child and took a step forward, “Brother Ye, we’re all from Tiannan. I’ll go in with you and demand an explanation too!”
“That’s right, we should go as well. This competition is just too unfair. They’re obviously treating us like monkeys!” Another middle-aged woman followed.
At that moment, many parents outside gathered. Their faces were filled with indignation.
Meanwhile, Mengmeng who was in Ye Chen’s embrace suddenly grabbed his collar. She puffed her cheeks trying to be tough, “Daddy, l-let’s go home. M-Mommy is waiting for us.”
Even though the child was not even five years old, she knew if her father rushed in, he would cause big trouble.
Ye Chen eased his expression and looked at her with a heartache, “My darling daughter, this is the first principle that I’m going to teach you. Humans strive for pride, while Buddha strives for an incense. No one can take away what belongs to us!”
“Daddy, what if someone stole what belongs to us?”
The little girl said weakly.
“Then we’ll beat that person up!
This is the second principle that daddy will teach you. If we can’t reason with them properly, then we will use our fists!
Remember, daddy will back you up no matter what happens!”
Ye Chen took a deep breath in and walked to the competition hall in determination.
His daughter could bleed, but she should not shed tears!
Li Yongmin’s expression changed witnessing that. He clenched his teeth and followed.
As soon as Ye Chen walked into the competition hall, he saw countless reporters gathered. They could not stop snapping photos of Zhao Yuanliang from the Zhao family. Meanwhile, a little boy stood next to him with a trophy in his hand. He looked arrogant.
It was the first prize winner, Zhao Yang!
When they saw the sudden influx of people, one of the staff came over immediately and shouted, “What are you guys doing? Get out, get out!”
The leader wanted to push Ye Chen away instinctively.
Ye Chen sent him flying with a slap.
At that moment, the entire hall fell silent. Countless people stared at Ye Chen in disbelief with their eyes wide open.
They did not expect that anyone would dare to stir up a fight here!
“What are you doing, brat?”
Zhao family’s second young master Zhao Yuanliang’s face turned grim instantly.
“Who are the judges?”
Ye Chen could not be bothered with him. Instead, he lifted his head and looked around the entire hall, hoping to find the judges.
His disregard angered Zhao Yuanliang. Just as he was about to speak, a young man in a uniform walked over, “I am the judge for this competition. What do you want?”
“I don’t want to do anything!”
Ye Chen shook his head lightly and looked at him with an extremely cold gaze, “I just want to ask, what standard did you use to judge this competition? How did a weakling get the first prize? Please explain that to me!”
A trace of panic flashed through the young man’s eyes, and he looked at Zhao family’s second young master Zhao Yuanliang by instinct.
“This is ridiculous!”
A cold snort was heard.
Subsequently, Zhao Yuanliang pulled Zhao Yang and swaggered over. He sneered, “Who do you think you are? How dare you question the judges’ decision?”
“That’s right. Who do you think you are to question our decision?” The young man from before snickered coldly as if he had gained some confidence.
He glanced coldly at the people behind Ye Chen as he spoke to this point. He could not help but say in a deep voice, “Parents, you’ll have my works that the result of the competition is absolutely fair and just. I hope that you guys won’t be used by anyone. I’ll give you three minutes to leave. Otherwise, I’ll call security!”
“That’s right. If you guys follow this guy and cause trouble, I, Zhao Yuanliang, will get the Jinling Municipal Public Security Bureau to put all of you behind bars for eight to ten days!”
Zhao Yuanliang said with a plastic smile on his face.
As soon as he said that, the parents behind Ye Chen could not help but take a few steps back. Subsequently, they pushed each other as they walked out, worried that they would fall behind.
At the end of the day, they were just ordinary people. How could they fight against the entire art gallery, not to mention the second son of the wealthy Zhao family, Zhao Yuanliang?
Many people who were standing outside looked at Ye Chen in a gloating manner.
“That guy is done for. Everyone knows that the first prize has already been decided. How dare he question the result of this competition?”
“That’s right. The young master of the wealthy Zhao family is participating in the competition. If he can’t even get the first prize, wouldn’t people laugh their heads off if this spread?!”
Moments later, Cang Shuxue and Li Yongmin were the only ones left behind. Li Yongmin hesitated for a while before he looked at Ye Chen in the end, “Brother Ye, let’s leave.”
To him, Ye Chen’s actions were extremely impulsive. After all, the Zhao family was a wealthy family in Jinling. Ordinary people like them could not afford to offend them.
“Yeah, Mr. Ye. Don’t…”
Cang Shuxue was so scared that she was about to cry.
“He hasn’t answered my question!”
However, Ye Chen remained still. He looked at the young judge again and enunciated word for word, “I’ll ask you one last time. What are your standards?”
“Brat, I’ll say this one last time. Get out!”
Most of the people in front of him were scared of his threat, so they left. Zhao Yuanliang’s arrogance grew, “I’ve seen so many useless garbage like you. You’re stirring troubles and extort him just because your child didn’t win an award and you’re unwilling to accept it?
You’re threatening the wrong person. Not only the Jinling Gallery won’t do anything about it, you won’t get a piece of me either!”
“That’s right, you two idiots!”
Zhao Yang who was next to him made funny faces at Ye Chen and his daughter. He was grinning, he felt extremely proud.
Ye Chen suddenly sighed softly.
“What are you sighing about?” Zhao Yuanliang sneered.
Ye Chen shook his head lightly. “I sighed because I thought I could reason with you guys calmly. Never did I expect that I’d have to rely on my fists to talk things out in the end.”
