Mr. Dior - Chap 93
Ch93 – You should continue to work as a long-term worker for my wife’s family.
The seven brothers who tried to fulfil their obligation of being kept were kicked out of the bedroom. Zhang Chenfei stood in front of the tightly closed door, slowly clenching his fists. Having lost his power, having lost the thirteen provinces of East China, he had once again become that mountain bandit who had nothing.
He could no longer force his little wife to do anything. On the contrary, the short-handed former warlord could only let the big young master rub him round and press flat.
Hugging a pillow in his arms, he walked to the study room, lit the lamp on the table, took out a blank notebook from the drawer, and started writing in his diary.
22:03, Laozi’s team has been defeated, all previous efforts have gone to waste, and now I’m left with nothing. But honestly, it’s not a big deal, considering I was originally a barefoot mountain bandit. At worst I’d have to start all over again. I just can’t let go of my recently reunited handsome wife. From now on, I can only eat soft food.
Ah, this chaotic and impure world, why must it treat bandits like this!
Marshal Zhang slept on the sofa all night. As he opened his eyes in the morning, he found the dog emperor in his arms and jumped up instantly.
“Pei, pei, pei! Zhang Guangzong, aren’t you disgusting? You actually slept in Laozi’s embrace just for some food! Do you have any integrity?”
“Wang, wang, wang!”
“Don’t talk back to me! Have you forgotten whose hands your dog life is in?”
Hearing the noise, Jiao Qi rubbed his eyes and went downstairs to check. He found one person and one dog arguing loudly, the quarrel was very expressive. He was speechless. “What are you competing with him for? Do you still want to eat breakfast at home this morning?”
“Eat, of course, eat at home.” Marshal Zhang, who was cautious and conscientious, would never take a single penny from his financial-backer young master.
Jiao Qi was very satisfied with the delicious and fragrant breakfast. He took a sip of the yoghurt handed over by Lao Gong and said, “What are your plans for today?”
“I’ll accompany you to the foreign firm.” Zhang Chenfei stood up, grabbed his jacket, pulled out a mini armour-piercing pistol from nowhere and tucked it at his waist. “From now on, I’m your bodyguard. If anyone dares to mess with you, I’ll kill them.”
“…” As a serious businessman, President Jiao felt that there was no need to hire a warlord as his bodyguard and rejected Mr. Zhang’s proposal. He asked the smart brain to check this guys itinerary. Annie used the couple’s authority to directly call up the work schedule in Louis XIII. It showed that Friday was filled with regular work, but there was an event scheduled for Saturday —an awards ceremony for the top three players in China for “Glory of the Galaxy’.
On Thursday evening, there were the semifinals. On Friday evening, it was the finals. On Saturday morning, there was an award ceremony at the sports arena, followed by a performance match.
The current script was a mixture of “warlord” and “bankrupt President”, and it wasn’t very lethal. So, Jiao Qi encouraged the bankrupt warlord to go to work on his own, “What’s the point of following me? I’ll give you one million silver yuan to help you make a comeback. Go and work hard.”

“Okay! I definitely won’t let you down!”
Friday, Shifei Headquarters.
9:00, Jiao Qi believes I can make a comeback and acknowledges me as an indomitable great hero. Looking at his admiring gaze, Laozi immediately became more hard! I couldn’t help but compose a poem:
Marrying a wife who is too handsome can lead to dying young. I didn’t believe it when my grandma said it.
Now that my lovely wife sits at home, I realise my waist isn’t strong enough.
Not strong enough, not strong enough, I must strengthen my brothers!
If my brothers can’t carry on, it’s a sure way to die young!
Friday passed through in tranquillity, without any waves and safely, Mr. Dior did nothing that threatened his life except for writing in his diary. By Saturday morning, the progress bar displayed on the broom reached 10%. However, when Zhang Chenfei woke up, he got into another argument with Guangzong, indicating that he was still in the warlord plot.
Jiao Qi looked at the little broom that looked like a snail crawling, feeling very melancholic. In order to prevent Marshal Zhang from talking nonsense, he had no choice but to follow him to the award ceremony.
“Ding Dong!” The smart brain prompted that there was news. Annie automatically filtered content that the owner was interested in, so if it showed a notification, it was likely something Jiao Qi was interested in.
【Mysterious Research Institute Suspected of Conducting Inhumane Experiments, Residents Report to the Police!】
Seeing the image below, Jiao Qi’s heart skipped a beat. Even though the name of the research institute was hidden, he recognized it at a glance as the “Knowledge is Power Research Institute” where Zhang Chenfei’s father worked.
Clicking the news article for more details. The report featured an interview with the person who called the police, who should be an enthusiastic uncle. The uncle’s exact words were, “I saw something badly mutilated in the waste, definitely not animal organs, and a non-researcher entered the institute. The last time I saw that person was half a month ago.”
With the advent of the Smart Brain era, people’s work efficiency has greatly improved, and many scientific research areas have seen rapid advancements in recent years. One side effect of this rapid development was the emergence of controversial researches that were beyond people’s awareness. Previously, there have been media reports exposing inhumane research, which garnered significant attention. As a result, the public was now highly sensitive to this aspect.
This horrible headline and vague description could easily lead people to speculate in certain directions, and caused them to overlook the loopholes within it. For example, how could a strictly confidential research institute allow passersby to see experimental waste?
Clicking the comments below the news, as expected, most people have been drawn into this kind of indignant emotion.
【My goodness, are these human experiments?】
【This is way beyond the line! We must investigate thoroughly!】
【I’ve seen this research facility, it’s near my home! It’s eerie and mysterious, and I have no idea what they’re researching.】
Turning to look at Zhang Chenfei who was driving attentively, Jiao Qi hesitated for a moment and finally called Zhang’s father.
“Sorry, the number you have dialled is currently switched off.”
Smart brains were not like smartphones, and usually, they won’t be switched off. When a call can’t get through, it’s either because it’s in an area with no signal or the call function is intentionally turned off. Given the current situation, the latter was more likely. Because of this baseless news and people trying to contact him, Professor Zhang, who was deeply immersed in his research, probably decided to turn off his phone.
After sending a message to the Public Relations Department and asking them to investigate the ins-and-outs of this news. Jiao Qi turned to look at his family’s Lao Gong again and reminded him, “If the media asks about your father or the laboratory thing later, absolutely do not answer, understand?”
“My father?” Zhang Chenfei frowned, as if he was a little unfamiliar with this title. After a while, he remembered who it was and sneered, “What, did the old man cause trouble again?”
“It’s not clear right now. I don’t think you’ll be questioned for the time being, but it’s better to be prepared.”
As soon as he finished speaking, they arrived in front of the venue. The media gathered outside the venue, upon seeing Daddy Chenfei’s car, immediately swarmed over. Jiao Qi didn’t say anything more and got out of the car along with Zhang Chenfei.
Fans who had not yet entered the venue were also outside and screamed when they saw the two of them getting out of the car.
“Ahhhhh, Daddy Chenfei, look at me, look at me!”
“Young Master, Young Master, our Young Master is here too, Ao Ao Ao!”
Zhang Chenfei proudly and aloofly lifted his chin. These people were all here to laugh at him after the defeat of the Dick Army. He must not allow them to look down on him.
The award ceremony took place before the performance match, and the top three teams were called up to the stage to receive their awards. Although the Demon King lost to MMY, they easily defeated the fourth-place team and finished third.
After all, they were all an anchor team, and among all the teams, the Dick Army had the highest popularity. The five of them went up wearing matching team uniforms, causing the scene to burst into excitement. It wasn’t a formal competition, leaning more towards entertainment. There was also a host at the award ceremony.
The host smiled as he interviewed the Dick Army, “You guys who do stand-up comedy, unexpectedly also have team uniforms?”
“Don’t underestimate stand-up comedians to esports players. Although we are amateurs, our equipment is professional!” Bad said, sticking his neck out.
The Demon King snapped his fingers, directing his teammates, “Show everyone that we do have team uniforms!”
One two three, turn around.
Five large ‘Dick’ characters were printed on the back, with a level of spiritual contamination comparable to the dazzling seven-colour special effect.
“Hahahaha…” The audience instantly lost control, and even the champion and runner-up teams waiting for their awards couldn’t help but cover their faces and laugh.
The host hurriedly told them to turn around. “Alright, alright, turn around quickly. I can hardly keep my eyes open. I heard that the team name was given by President Zhang, right?”
“This one, you’ll have to ask President Zhang.” The Demon King laughed. He didn’t know if Zhang Chenfei was willing to admit it, but as a labour worker for a living, he always had to keep an eye out, so he threw the question out there.
The enlightened host handed the microphone to Zhang Chenfei, who was on stage to present the awards.
Marshal Zhang said solemnly: “Since we have already been defeated, this name has no meaning.”
Jiao Qi sat under the stage, glanced at the live broadcast channel, and the barrage was instantly filled with one sentence:
【Devil King, Dad is very disappointed in you! 】
The Demon King on stage was also startled for a moment, then quickly reacted and followed Zhang Chenfei’s act, “Your Majesty, as an official team, we don’t even have a secret weapon. We even have such an easy-to-beat name. We’ve really done our best! Next time, give us some ultimate weapons, and I promise we’ll be unbeatable!”
“Heh, forget about ultimate weapons, I can’t even afford mini armour-piercing pistols now. I’m being supported by my wife!” Marshal Zhang looked at his former subordinates and sighed deeply, “This battle can’t go on. You should continue to work as a long-term worker for my wife’s family.”
The Demon King was shocked: “Why, does President Jiao define me as a long-term worker?”
There was a moment of silence in the audience, as people thought he might be displeased with this statement. After all, being a gold-medal anchor, he was highly regarded everywhere he went, so calling him a long-term worker seemed a bit excessive.
However, before the host could step in to mediate, the Demon King happily patted Bad on the back twice, “Great, it seems President Jiao wants to keep me around for a long time! I’ll work hard!”
The audience at the venue and the barrage in the live chat instantly burst into laughter. The host felt a bit redundant; these people could easily perform a group stand-up comedy act until the end.
However, Zhang Chenfei wasn’t very happy. After presenting the awards, he returned to the president’s seat, sat next to his little wife, and pulled out a diary with a sense of grief and indignation.
The general under him went back to work as a long-term worker for Jiao Xiaoqi, very spineless. Shameful, deplorable, lamentable, pathetic, hateful! Laozi is so pissed off!
