The next day, Xue Lin woke up with dark circles under her eyes. Her beautiful face had a grey cast. The dark circles were especially apparent.

She had spent a lot of time reviewing the company's information last night until late at night. She did not rest well.

Qingfeng's heart ached when he saw Xue Lin's tired face. He said, "Don't stay up so late next time. It's not good for your health."

Xue Lin shook her head and said, "No, even though I dislike Ruyan Liu, I have to admit that she is very talented in business. If I want to defeat her, I have to work extra hard."

Qingfeng was speechless. The two women had butted heads. It seemed like his good days have come to an end.

"Qingfeng, don't make breakfast. There's not enough time. We have to go to Beiyang City to participate in the Provincial Antique Competition," Xue Lin said.

Qingfeng nodded in understanding. Today was the day where he would challenge Feiyan Liu, the CEO of Phoenix Corporation. Naturally, they had to leave the house early.

Beiyang City was a city of the Hujiang Province. The Provincial Antique Competition was held there every year.

Since Xue Lin was too tired, Qingfeng drove the car and she rested in the backseat.

Qingfeng drove the BMW to the Ice Snow Corporation. Yunchang Xu was already waiting for him outside of the company.

"Director Xu, sorry to keep you waiting," Qingfeng apologized. Yunchang Xu was already elderly but he still woke up early and waited for him in front of the company.

Yunchang Xu waved his hand and said, "It's okay, I want to observe the competition. Last year, I participated in the competition but I lost to the Phoenix Corporation. I hope that you can avenge me and defeat them this year."

"Don't' worry. I will defeat them. Get into the car," Qingfeng motioned Yunchang Xu to sit in the seat next to the driver's seat. Then, he drove towards Beiyang City.

Beiyang City was 60km away from Eastern Sea City. Qingfeng drove speedily and arrived at the destination in 1 hour.

As expected of a provincial city, Beiyang City was very modern. There were many cars and people on the streets.

At 7am, Qingfeng arrived on time outside of the Phoenix Corporation.

The Phoenix Corporation was the number one Corporation of Hujiang Province. The building was 40 floors and all the floors belonged to them. The building looked luxurious and majestic.

Outside of the Corporation, there was an enormous parking lot which was close to 10 000 square feet. It resembled a public square. It was apparent that the Phoenix Corporation was extremely wealthy.

At the moment, there were countless luxury cars in the parking lot including a few Rolls Royces. The car plates impressively read 88888.

Other than the Rolls Royce, there were also Maserati, Lamborghini, Hummer, Porsche, Audi, and Ferrari brand cars. It was more luxurious than a car dealership.

Even though the BMW that Qingfeng drove was also a good car, it was slightly worse than the luxury cars.

But Qingfeng did not care. He only viewed cars as a form of transportation.

Qingfeng, Xue Lin and Yunchang Xu got off the car. They were immediately surrounded by a crowd of reporters.

The reporters were from newspapers and TV Stations. They all arrived very early at the Phoenix Corporation. They waited outside of the building for Qingfeng since he had a bet with Feiyan Liu of the Phoenix Corporation. Whoever lost the competition would apologize to the other.

"Mr. Qingfeng, are you confident that you can defeat Feiyan Liu?" A short-haired female reporter asked as she placed the microphone next to Qingfeng's mouth.

Qingfeng took over the microphone and said, "I will definitely defeat Feiyan Liu."

"You're boasting. You think you can defeat Feiyan Liu, who do you think you are?"

"Yeah, his ego has swelled because we interviewed him. He thinks he can defeat Feiyan Liu? He is day dreaming."

"This fellow likes to boast. Well, at least he is giving us reporters something to write about."

The surrounding reporters discussed animatedly. Their tone was insulting. They thought that Qingfeng did not know his own strength.

At this moment, a muscular young man walked in. He was handsome and wore a suit. The reporters gathered around him just as he arrived at the entrance of Phoenix Corporation.

Instantly, all the reporters disappeared from Qingfeng's side. The only reporter left was a short-haired female reporter.

"Who is that fellow? Why is he so popular?" Qingfeng asked confusedly.

The reporter casted a glance at Qingfeng and asked with surprise, "You don't know him? His name is Changqing Li. He is the CEO of Evergreen Corporation. He is representing their company and competing in the competition."

Changqing Li?

Qingfeng furrowed his brows in puzzlement. He had never heard of this person.

The female reporter touched her forehead in exasperation. She said, "Evergreen Corporation is the second biggest company in Hujiang Province. It is just below Phoenix Corporation. Changqing Li obtained second place in the competition last year. He almost won the competition."

Qingfeng nodded in understanding. He thought, "Oh, he is the runner-up of the competition. That's why all the reporters went to interview him."

"Oh yeah, what's your name. why don't you interview Changqing Li?" Qingfeng asked.

"My name is Xiaoli Wang. My sister asked me to interview you. She said that you will win for sure," The girl said shyly.

Qingfeng shook his head. He had never heard of her name. Who was her sister? Why was she so confident in his abilities?

Xiaoli Wang saw the confusion in Qingfeng's eyes. She said with a smile, "My sister is called Xiaomei Wang. She participated in the Eastern Sea Antique Competition. She knows that you are very strong."

Xiaomei Wang?

Qingfeng was dazed for a moment. He finally recalled that he had indeed met a beauty called Xiaomei Wang during the Eastern Sea Antique Competition. They got along quite well.

But Qingfeng never saw her again after the competition. He was quite disappointed.

"Xiaoli Wang, how is your sister doing these days?" Qingfeng asked.

Xiaoli Wang's expression darkened when she heard Qingfeng's words. She said sadly, "My sister is ill. She is at the hospital. She heard that you are entering the Provincial Antique Competition so she insisted that I come and interview you. She said that she will watch the live broadcast of the competition at the hospital. She wants to watch you defeat all your opponents."

Qingfeng was also saddened. He said, "Don't worry. I will fulfill her wish and defeat everyone."

There were participants from 18 cities in the competition. Every big jewelry company had sent a representative. It was a huge gathering.

Qingfeng's opponent not only included Feiyan Liu and Changqing Li, it also includes some people with deep understandings of antiques.
