Chapter 1474: Bloody Drill Bit (2)
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Cai Guohong tried his best to go to the side and sat down without moving.
Li Dafa frowned and said, “Cai Guohong, go further away! Don’t be a hindrance here!”
Cai Guohong had no choice but to get up again. He walked a little further into the distance, but as if he really could not walk anymore, he sat down.
Li Dafa didn’t care about him because the drill bit had been fished up. He smiled happily and said, “Haha… I’m practically a genius! A two-million-yuan drill bit settled in a few minutes! Those darn technicians. They wanted protective gear and all those equipment… F**k, what a waste of time! Alright, get moving. Get to work! Cai Guohong, stop sitting and slacking. Hurry up and get to work!”
The moment the drill bit was up, no one blocked the middle-aged man’s view. He saw Cai Guohong sitting there motionless, so he immediately ran over.
Li Dafa cursed angrily, “Cai Guohong, why are you acting dead? You did some work, and you’re acting this way? Why would I need you? Let me tell you, this construction site doesn’t keep the lazy!”
Cai Guohong nodded and was about to get up.
The middle-aged man stepped forward and said, “Old Cai, how are you?”
“Old He, I feel my heart aching… It hurts…” Cai Guohong clutched his chest as he had no strength to stand up.
Old He was also anxious. “Why don’t I send you to the hospital?”
“That won’t do. Once I leave, Li Dafa will definitely dock my pay. I’d have worked nothing for today…” Cai Guohong shook his head.
“This won’t do; that won’t do either. What’s more important than life?” Old He said.
Cai Guohong thought for a moment and said, “I’ll take a rest. If I can’t take it, I’ll go to the hospital.”
“Cai Guohong, why are you still slacking off there?” Li Dafa’s voice sounded. Following that, Li Dafa walked over angrily.
When Cai Guohong saw this, he helplessly stood up, but when he exerted his strength, his eyes rolled back as he screamed. He collapsed to the ground, motionless.
“Old Cai!” Old He was so frightened that he hurriedly shouted. He took out his phone and was about to call for an ambulance.
At this moment, Li Dafa’s expression turned a little ugly. When he saw Old He about to call for an ambulance, he walked up and slapped Old He’s phone away.
“What are you doing?” Old He shouted angrily.
Li Dafa said, “What are you trying to do? Isn’t it just a fainting spell? Why are you making a phone call? Drag him to somewhere cooling would do. Why are you messing around?”
Old He looked at Li Dafa angrily. “He’s already in this state; yet, you aren’t sending him to the hospital?”
“I have the final say at the construction site. If I say no, it means no. Men, carry him away!” Li Dafa waved his hand and his men immediately swarmed forward. Old He wanted to stop them, but he was no match for these fierce security guards. He was pushed to the side.
Then, Old He watched helplessly as Li Dafa’s men carried him away. Throughout the entire process, Old Cai did not react at all. His entire body was limp, and gradually, he became stiff. Blood oozed out of the corner of his mouth…
However, Li Dafa seemed to turn a blind eye to it. He only urged everyone to start work while he followed over.
The dreamscape gradually turned dark.
The scene changed, and it was another meeting. Li Dafa stood on stage and said, “It’s a very sad thing. One of our workers passed away today. Regarding this, I represent the company, the entire construction site’s leaders, and the entire staff to express our deep regret. At the same time, the company will actively deal with the aftermath and offer suitable compensation.”
When he reached this part of the script, Li Dafa frowned and suddenly threw it away. He cursed, “What the heck!”
Then, Li Dafa raised his head and said arrogantly, “I don’t want to say useless things. Old Cai died from a work injury. He will be compensated however much needed, not one cent less. But I don’t want to hear people talking nonsense. Otherwise, don’t blame me for being nasty!”
With that said, Li Dafa swept the crowd and no one dared to say anything. There was nothing they could do. The surrounding security guards were holding sticks. Who would dare to say anything?
The meeting ended, and the dreamscape ended.
Cai Yufen had fainted from crying…
Old He scratched his head in frustration and said, “If… if I had been more determined and sent Old Cai to the hospital, things might not have been like this…”
The young man said, “At that time, even if you wanted to send him there, Li Dafa wouldn’t let you do it. How can you beat a dozen security guards alone?”
Old He said, “Jiang Yu, stop consoling me. I feel terrible…” Upon saying that, Old He also cried.
Fangzheng said, “Patron, you have already tried your best. Sometimes, there’s no way to reverse the situation with human strength. To lower him so quickly down a 40-meter-long well, the air pressure difference is already enough to take away Patron Cai’s life… It would have been too late to send him to the hospital.”
Old He said, “After Cai Yufen came to make a scene, I also wanted to make it known, but… Sigh… I need to support my family too…”
Fangzheng pressed his palms together and said, “Patron, there’s no need to blame yourself. Revealing the truth is a heroic deed, but not revealing it is for self-preservation. There’s nothing wrong with that.”
“Am I not at fault?” Old He was stunned. He thought that he would be criticized, but he never expected that he would receive such words.
Fangzheng smiled. “Be it a person or anything in the world, it’s their instinct to protect themselves first. Besides, there’s nothing wrong with this matter. This is because no one’s life is more valuable than another’s. Everyone has their own considerations. It’s only right to consider themselves and the people around them.
“To sacrifice oneself for others makes them a hero… The world needs heroes, but heroes also need to learn to protect themselves.
“These two were never parallel. They can intersect.
“It’s just like how you’re willing to risk being fired and losing your salary, or even taking the risk of being punished out of revenge by saying all these. It’s a sacrifice for others. This is an action of a hero; what’s there to blame?”
When Old He heard that, he scratched his head in embarrassment. “I… This… Master, you are too good with words.”
“The people from Yonggui Garden Company are here.” Jiang Yu suddenly pointed into the distance.
Fangzheng frowned and looked back. Indeed, a few people in suits and leather shoes strode into an office.
Fangzheng got Salted Fish to carry Cai Yufen. With a wave of his fin, a bubble appeared and hoisted Cai Yufen up.
Fangzheng said in surprise, “When did you learn this divine power?”
Salted Fish said in an aged manner, “I know a lot…”
“Then why didn’t you use it in the past?” asked Fangzheng.
Salted Fish sighed. “I often forget what I know since there’s too many…”
Fangzheng rushed to the office with Salted Fish and Cai Yufen. He pushed the door, but it was locked from within.
However, Fangzheng did not mind. He exerted some strength and with a crack, the door was forcefully pushed open. However, because everyone was in a dream, no one noticed the abnormality.
When he entered the room, he saw five people sitting in the meeting room. Li Dafa sat by the side and said with a chuckle, “I’ve already explained the matter that the leaders are concerned about. It was really an accident. Besides, I guarantee that no accidents will happen in the future.”
