The Luckiest man in the world CHAPTER 256-260

Now, the Ling Tea Tree has grown to the position of  Omi’s calf, and it has given birth to a green leaf.

At this rate, it won’t be long before this area can become a dense tea forest.

Of course,  Omi spends more time in school experiencing the leisurely life as a student.

In a blink of an eye, it was the afternoon of February 28.

 Omi, Song Yi, Ma Zhong and Zheng Jinbao came to the classroom and found a back seat to sit down.

“Do you know that the city gymnasium will hold a concert tomorrow?” Ma Zhong asked.

Zheng Jinbao said: “How can I not know?”

“In the past few days, WeChat, Toutiao today, and UB browser pop up messages every three to five. I received Shun Shun Express yesterday and found that the box also had a concert advertisement printed on it, as well as the Emperor Hotel, Feiyang Building, Qiankun Building, etc. , The LED displays in several buildings are all concert promotion…”

“By the way, Meager is also on the hot search today.”

Ma Zhong asked, “You said, which star is this concert?”

Zheng Jinbao touched his chin, and said with a wise man’s appearance: “It is often said that it is Zhou Lun and Chen Xun on the Internet, but according to my guess, it is more likely that the stars are singing.”

“The stars sing?” Ma Zhong asked puzzled.

Zheng Jinbao said: “I won’t say anything about Meager, Shun Shun Express, Emperor Hotel, Feiyang Building…”

“You should know whose company WeChat, Toutiao, and UB Rovers are? Behind it is the Penguin Group, Alphabet Jump and Ari Group!”

“Will their Big Three promote a concert like that?”

“Unless the singer in the concert is the boss of the Big Three!”

 Omi couldn’t help showing a look of surprise on his face when he heard this.

Although, the singer of the concert is not the boss of the Big Three.

However, the boss of the concert singer is the boss of the Big Three!

Zheng Jinbao watched live broadcasts on the computer every day.  Omi used to think he only had a female anchor in his heart.

Unexpectedly, still have such a strong analytical ability?

Seeing that  Omi was also attracted by his own words, Zheng Jinbao couldn’t help but push the black-rimmed glasses on the bridge of his nose, revealing a light of wisdom.

“There is only one answer… This is a charity concert by various stars!”

“The Big Three and Shun Shun Express are supporting public welfare undertakings! Therefore, they will work hard to promote it!”

When  Omiyan heard it, the corners of his mouth twitched slightly.

Sure enough, Zheng Jinbao only had a beautiful anchor in his heart.

Ma Zhong touched the back of his head, as if thinking about the possibility of Zheng Jinbao’s words.

Song Yi next to him didn’t care: “Whether it’s a group of stars or which star…he does so much publicity, it must be very lively, not to mention it is free, you must go and check it out!”

While talking, he took out two brand-new tickets from his pocket.

Zheng Jinbao said in surprise: “You actually grabbed two tickets! Which district is there? How many?”

Song Yi said proudly, “No. 933 and No. 934, Area C.”

“There are more than 900 numbers in Area C? That position is very high!” Ma Zhong said in surprise.

To know…

A total of 100,000 tickets were issued for this concert.

Among them, 60,000 on-site tickets and 40,000 off-site tickets are included.

The 60,000 tickets are divided into 10 districts ABCDEFGHIJ, each with 6,000 seats.

It is already very difficult to get the tickets in the venue.

It is even more difficult to grab the first 1,000 seats in the infield ticket.

Song Yi said even more proudly: “That’s right!”

Ma Zhongdao: “Song Yi has two, we have to find a way to grab two more… so that everyone can go to the concert together.”

Song Yi coughed and said, “Well…you should have said it earlier, I have already promised a beauty for the finance department.”

Zheng Jinbao sighed lightly: “The guy who cares about **** and despise friends, Xiao Zhongzi, if you want to see it, I’ll grab it for you tonight!”

 Omi listened to the conversation between several people and said with a smile: “Don’t grab it, I have some tickets. You two want to see the call tomorrow. I will fill in the information for you, and you can just swipe your ID card tomorrow.”

Zheng Jinbao excitedly said: “Brother Fan is still awesome!”

Ma Zhong happily said, “Thank you Fan Brother!”

Then,  Omi said to Song Yi: “Song Yi, what about you, do you want me to also help you report the information?”

Song Yi hesitated: “Well… forget it, I have promised to go to the concert with the girl from the finance department.”

 Omi nodded indifferently.

“Jingle Bell!”

After a ring of bells rang, the afternoon class officially began.

The time in the classroom is always as swift as running water.

Almost once I closed my eyes and opened my eyes, the bell rang after class.

After  Omi ate dinner, he drove a Mercedes-Benz big G straight to Panlong Villa.

He first watered the spirit tea tree and looked at the lush green buds, and he felt refreshed for a while.

Then,  Omi lay on the leather sofa and opened WeChat.

Qin Yuxuan is very busy recently, and she is not suitable for coming to see the concert because she is in the magic city.

Sister Lin Xiaoyao, now in the third year of high school…

Before long, the college entrance examination is about to be taken, and it is not suitable to watch the concert.

When I went to Yike City the day before yesterday, I had made an appointment with Huang Ling and Qiu Ziqian.

When I met Teacher Tiantian at school yesterday, I also told her about the concert.

Chu Yunyue learned about the concert from Feiyang Building, and said that she would go there early in the morning.

 Omi kept flipping through WeChat, and soon turned his attention to Han Tian.

 Omi: I made a concert. Will I go there to listen to it tomorrow?

Han Tian: Tomorrow? You mean that the mysterious concert at the City Gymnasium was held by you?

 Omi: Yes.

Han Tian: Oh my god! Go! Go! Go! I want to go!

Then,  Omi set his sights on Xia Xue and Xia Bing’s WeChat.

 Omi: Are you going to the city gymnasium to watch a concert tomorrow?

Jiangbei University, female dormitory.

Xia Xue and Xia Bing, a pair of girls like porcelain dolls, were sitting at the table well-behaved, reading very seriously.

“Ding Dong!”

At this time, their mobile phones shook slightly, and a WeChat message popped up.

Pretty girl Yan: Sisters, have you eaten yet?

Xia Xue (Xia Bing): I have eaten it.

Pretty girl Yan: Did you drink water?

Xia Xue (Xia Bing):…

Beautiful girl Yan: Cough cough cough, UU reading www. . com Okay, I just want to say, sisters, tomorrow’s concert will be very exciting, don’t you really go to see it?

Xia Xue (Xia Bing): In a few days, we will have another competition and we have to read the book carefully. So, mother, we will not go there.

Pretty girl Yan: What mother, what mother? I said it many times and called my sister!

Pretty girl Yan: Did you hear that? Called sister!

However, Xia Xue and Xia Bing didn’t even care about it.

They turned their attention back to the books, and at the same time, they secretly asked: Will he participate in this competition?

“Ding Dong!”

At this time, Xia Xue and Xia Bing’s mobile phones vibrated again, and another WeChat message popped up.

PS: Welcome to read my book ” “.

The fastest update of the Luckiest man in the world : the latest chapter from receiving   !

In the past, Xia Xue and Xia Bing were not too keen on competitions.

They will only passively register if the teacher informs them to participate.

However, since last year’s mathematical modeling contest, they have been looking forward to the arrival of the competition.

Because this means that  Omi may also participate!

They have more time to get along with  Omi!

When Xia Xue and Xia Bing think of mathematical modeling contests, they design models together with  Omi to solve the problem scenes, and a sweet smile will appear on their pretty faces.

Therefore, not long ago, when Xia Xue and Xia Bing learned that there was another competition, they did not hesitate at all and chose to register.

After signing up, they began to study very hard.

Xia Xue and Xia Bing’s ideas are simple…

If  Omi also signed up, he would definitely not be able to hold him back.

“Ding Dong!”

At this time, the phone vibrated again, and they thought it was another message from their mother.

Therefore, I did not look at the phone in the first time.

However, when they flipped through the book, they still glanced at the screen inadvertently from the corner of their eyes.

It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t look at it. After reading it, they all seem to have been cast a hold technique, completely motionless!

Not moving anymore? !

Do not!

Xia Xue and Xia Bing are still moving, their already bright beautiful eyes, at this time, are constantly shaking with brilliant light.

Because a WeChat message popped up on the phone screen.

 Omi: Are you going to the city gymnasium to watch a concert tomorrow?

next moment…

Xia Xue and Xia Bing could not wait to pick up the mobile phone together, and quickly jumped on the screen with white jade fingers.

“Humhhhhhhh!”

Only the slender fingers made a rapid and crisp collision with the screen.

After a while, a long paragraph appeared on the screen.

The two read the text carefully, and murmured in a low voice, “It seems to be a bit long-winded.”

Then, they did not hesitate to delete all the words directly.

Then, the two white fingers flicked quickly on the screen again.

This was repeated 4 times.

Xia Xue and Xia Bing finally replied the same news.

Xia Xue (Xia Bing): We want to go.

 Omi: Okay, then you can send your ID number…

 Omi: Forget it, I will pick you up tomorrow.

He is coming to pick himself up to the concert!

The hearts of Xia Xue and Xia Bing almost didn’t jump out of their throats.

At the same time, they were afraid of taking a step to answer, which caused  Omi to misunderstand.

As a result, the **** jumped quickly on the screen like a phantom.

Xia Xue (Xia Bing): Hmm!

 Omi: It’s getting late. Rest early, good night.

Xia Xue (Xia Bing): Good night.

The conversation between the three ended here, very brief.

Xia Xue and Xia Bing did not put down their phones.

They watched a few short conversations, and their pretty faces were full of smiles.

Then, like a treasure, I hugged the phone tightly in my arms (oYo), letting my body temperature make the phone hot and hot!

This night…

Xia Xue and Xia Bing were lying on the bed, and the smiles on their pretty faces persisted for a moment.

No sleep tonight.

Compared to the sleeplessness of the twin beauties,  Omi slept very comfortably today, almost snoring when he lay down.

The next day.

The sky is clear and the sun is warm.

 Omi slowly got up from the soft big bed.

As usual, he glanced at the phone.

“0:00, China Merchants Bank remitted 3,570,000 yuan.”

For this kind of information that he saw every day, he directly chose to ignore it.

“Sign in!”

【Ding! Congratulations, you got 10 million yuan. 】

 Omi vomited: “It’s 10 million again, can you change it to something else?”

He shook his head and slowly got up from the bed.

After washing for a while, I took out from the refrigerator the Wagyu sandwiches, lobster burgers, high-quality ranch milk that I bought back from a 2-Michelin-star restaurant yesterday for a total of 3888 yuan…

A simple breakfast was solved hastily.

Then,  Omi lay on the leather sofa and played with the phone comfortably, very calm and leisurely.

His life is peaceful, Jiangbei…especially near the Jiangbei City Gymnasium, but the opposite is true.

“Dididi!”

The noisy sirens are endless, and the long queues of dense vehicles block the road.

“What’s going on today? Why is it so congested?” The passenger sitting in the taxi asked in confusion.

The driver looked at the passenger strangely and asked, “Don’t you know?”

“Know what?” the passenger asked.

The driver said: “My buddy, you are afraid that you are not a foreigner, and you haven’t read the news for a long time?”

“Our Jiangbei Gymnasium is going to hold a concert today!”

Having said this, the driver couldn’t help showing a look of expectation on his face.

The passenger said: “Didn’t the concert start at 8 o’clock in the evening? Why is it blocked now?”

“Many people worry that it will be more congested at night.” The driver smiled.

As the driver said, many people worry about traffic jams at night.

So, I rushed to the gym early.

And some people who originally planned to go to the gym later, seeing that the traffic jam started so early, worried that it would get more jammed at night.

So, he also went out early.

Gradually, the roads around the stadium became more congested.

Of these,  Omi naturally has no way of knowing.

When he was hungry, he asked the Michelin restaurant to give a delicacy. When he was thirsty, he took out a bottle of Kobe mineral water from the refrigerator…

He just lay on the sofa and had a dull and leisurely day.

 Omi glanced at the darkening sky outside the window, and couldn’t help muttering: “I almost forgot, there will be a concert today…Time should be almost up, then go to the gym.”

When the words fell,  Omi strode towards the outside.

At this time, the two pilots were standing in front of the MD902 private jet in the villa, their faces full of excitement.

They are not without flying a helicopter.

However, most of them are flying Rotweiser A600, Schwarzer 300C and other small helicopters.

Compared with the MD902, these helicopters are the gap between Santana and Lamborghini…

Let alone driving the MD902, they just saw it… and they just saw it in a magazine.

People who have been driving Santana for many years, UU reading www.  . Com suddenly gave him to Lamborghini.

No wonder the two are so excited.

When the two pilots saw  Omi, they hurriedly said, “Hello, Mr. Lin.”

 Omi nodded: “Hello, let’s go now… First go to Jiangbei University.”

As a result, he also anticipated that there might be traffic jams today.

Secondly, this helicopter is still useful for concerts.

Therefore,  Omi transferred two pilots from Xia Guo Airlines.

“Yes!” the two pilots said in unison.

“Wow!”

With a violent rumbling sound, MD902 gradually lifted into the air and galloped away.

Before long, it turned into a small black spot in the air.

The fastest update of the Luckiest man in the world : the latest chapter from receiving   !

Jiangbei University, downstairs in the female dormitory.

Since the morning, Xia Bing and Xia Xue have been standing under the big tree in front of the dormitory, with their two big shiny eyes staring into the distance silently.

In his eyes… all the colors of expectation.

At this time, the roommate Zhao Ni, who had just returned from the outside, stepped forward in surprise and said, “Xia Bing and Xia Xue, why are you still here? Wouldn’t it be from the morning until now?”

Although Xia Bing and Xia Xue are introverted, they rarely talk with their roommates.

However, Zhao Ni can easily feel that the two are very kind.

Therefore, I am willing to be friends with them.

Xia Bing and Xia Xue didn’t like lying, and said truthfully: “Yes…yes.”

“What have you been waiting for here? Have you had dinner?” Zhao Ni asked.

Xia Bing and Xia Xue said, “Not yet.”

“Not yet? Wait, maybe you haven’t even eaten lunch yet?” Zhao Ni asked again.

Xia Bing and Xia Xue nodded in embarrassment.

“What?!” Zhao Ni immediately widened her eyes and exclaimed, “What are you doing? Go eat!”

Xia Bing and Xia Xue hesitated and said, “We…we are waiting for someone.”

“Who? You want to wait like this! It’s been a day! No matter who it is, it’s not worth waiting!” Zhao Ni shouted.

After speaking, she was about to forcibly drag the two towards the cafeteria.

“Wow!”

At this time, there was a sudden noise in the distance.

Then, a cool helicopter appeared above the high school.

This scene… attracted the attention of many people.

“f*ck! It’s a helicopter!”

“Helicopters came to our school!”

“So cool!”

When many people looked up at the sky and made a comment, a rope ladder fell from the helicopter.

Then, a tall, handsome figure slowly walked down the rope ladder.

It is  Omi!

See here…

Xia Bing and Xia Xue seemed to see a round of scorching sun constantly approaching them, illuminating their eyes completely, and the entire pretty face became extremely brilliant as a result.

 Omi smiled and said, “Have you been waiting for a long time?”

Xia Bing and Xia Xue shook their heads, and then, as if they had thought of something, they hurriedly handed out a bottle of Pulse from the small backpack behind.

Regarding this…

 Omi had been used to it as usual, accepted the pulse, and took a sip of each bottle.

After Xia Bing and Xia Xue saw them, the joy on their faces became even greater.

 Omi said: “Then let’s go.”

At this moment, Zhao Ni, who was standing next to him without speaking, shouted: “Why are you going? You know that Xia Bing and Xia Xue have been here for you all day!”

“Even, lunch and dinner have not been eaten yet! You still have the face to tell them to leave? Don’t think it is great if you have money!”

Zhao Ni was also shocked by the plane in the sky.

Therefore, he was not able to refute  Omi in the first place.

 Omi was surprised: “What? Have you waited here for a day?”

Xia Bing and Xia Xue lowered their heads one after another like children who had done something.

 Omi looked at the tired faces of the two, and in his mind… he couldn’t help but recall the time when they waited for themselves on the basketball court every day, and his heart hurts slightly.

He stretched out his hand and gently stroked their heads and said, “Don’t be so stupid in the future.”

Xia Bing and Xia Xue nodded with enjoyment.

After a pause,  Omi said again: “I am also to blame for this. I didn’t say when I would pick you up yesterday…”

“Well, let’s go eat now.”

Xia Bing and Xia Xue obediently said: “Yeah.”

Then,  Omi said to Zhao Ni: “Are you going to go together? We will go to the concert later.”

Although, Zhao Ni’s tone just now was very rude, even, it can be said to be a reprimand.

However,  Omi was not angry.

Because, he understands…Zhao Ni is really good to Xia Bing and Xia Xue.

Therefore, the impression of her is very good.

And Zhao Ni seemed to realize that she seemed to have misunderstood something, and she couldn’t help but squatted: “I…I have already eaten, so I won’t go.”

 Omi didn’t force it, saying goodbye, and went into the helicopter along the rope ladder with Xia Bing and Xia Xue.

“Go to the Emperor Hotel.”

The two pilots responded: “Yes!”

“Boom!”

After a loud noise from the helicopter, it galloped away and steadily stopped at the airport on the top floor of the Emperor Hotel.

Under the leadership of the waiter who had been waiting on the top floor,  Omi and others soon arrived in the VIP box.

At this point, the table has been set up with hearty dishes.

 Omi personally served two bowls to Xia Bing and Xia Xue, saying, “You haven’t eaten all day, so drink a bowl of soup to warm your stomach.”

Xia Bing and Xia Xue nodded like chickens pecking rice.

“Guru!”

“Guru!”

A bowl of soup was quickly drunk.

Then,  Omi put a small cake for them, and said, “Eat some more pasta to add a little energy.”

When Xia Bing and Xia Xue were eating, there were already countless people standing around the Jiangbei City Gymnasium.

In order to prevent accidents, seizure vehicles, fire trucks, and ambulances are lined up on the side.

Standing at the door, wearing a suit and leather shoes, or shaved head, or keep an inch, or have tattoos on their bodies, the men exclaimed: “I have never seen such a big handwriting!”

“Brother Wang, your boss is amazing!”

“so amazing!”

Wang Shengli, manager of Feilong Security Company, said proudly, “Of course!”

Before, Wang Shengli knew that  Omi was unusual.

Now, he admires  Omi even more.

Immediately afterwards, Wang Shengli said seriously: “You have also seen that there are many people here tonight. Later, you must keep your people in good order, and don’t make any accidents!”

Today, Wang Shengli drew hundreds of security guards from Feilong Security Company.

However, to be on the safe side, he called some people to help.

Several people around nodded and said, “Brother Wang, don’t worry, there will be no problems!”

The bald man in a suit even said: “If there is a problem in the area I am responsible for, you just kick my head as a ball!”

“Yes!”

“me too!”

Others followed suit.

Wang Shengli nodded with satisfaction: “In the future, UU reading www. .com, if there is a chance, I will let you meet my boss.”

When everyone heard and heard, they all showed a touch of excitement that could not be concealed.

In their view…

A person who is able to host such a huge concert is definitely an existence that stands up to the sky.

If you can see the previous side, it is definitely a great thing.

“Thank you, Brother Wang!” everyone said in unison.

Wang Shengli said: “Okay, the time is almost there, and the audience can slowly come in.”

“Okay, I’ll go over and make arrangements!”

Soon, the ten side entrances of ABCDEFGHIJ of Jiangbei City Gymnasium were all in long queues, and under the maintenance of many security guards, they walked inside in an orderly manner.

Even if the stadium has 10 side doors.

However, this concert has 100,000 spectators! It still takes a long time to let everyone in.

“drop!”

Song Yi swiped the ticket lightly, and after a strict security check, he found his seat.

“Finally come in.”

Next to him, a girl named Gao Lanwen with a face value of about 80 points, looked at the dark silhouettes in the gym, and exclaimed: “There are too many people! I don’t know if Juanjuan and the others have come in.”

While she was talking, she couldn’t help looking into the distance, looking for the figure of her friend.

“Use this to find.” Song Yi took out the telescope he had prepared and said.

Gao Lanwen was surprised: “You even brought a telescope!”

“This allows us to see more clearly.” Song Yi said with a smile, “I remember Liu Juan and the others are in the 4000+ seats in Zone E? They should be behind that direction…”

Gao Lanwen looked in the direction Song Yi pointed out. Sure enough, she quickly saw her friends and couldn’t help but waved and yelled at them.

However, at such a distance, how could the other party hear her voice.

Song Yi looked at Gao Lanwen’s cute appearance and was fascinated for a while.

Then, he raised his head and looked into the distance, as if he was looking for something, but he didn’t find anything.

Muttered: “I don’t know where Xiaozhongzi and the others are sitting. Forget it, just ask.”

While talking, Song Yi took out his mobile phone and quickly sent a message to the group of 104 roommates.

Song Yi: Xiaozhongzi, have you entered the gym?

Ma Zhong: We are here.

Zheng Jinbao: Song Yi, do you know where we sit? Our seats are VIP196 and VIP197, which are very front and middle positions in the VIP area!

Zheng Jinbao: The chairs here are all leather sofas, you dare to believe it! ?

Song Yi: Damn it? ! Really?

Zheng Jinbao: Is there a fake?

Then, Song Yi took the telescope from Gao Lanwen and looked towards the VIP area below.

I saw…

A fat man with a round face was standing and waving in his direction.

This person is not Zheng Jinbao, but who is he?

Song Yi slowly put down the binoculars, and said regretfully: “I had already let Brother Fan help arrange the seats.”

…………

At this time, Zhao Peng, the music director of Rolling Entertainment, and Zhang Xiaohai, the deputy director, also lined up to enter the stadium.

Zhang Xiaohai looked at the crowded figures and said, “Many people!”

Zhao Peng said: “This is normal. After all, WeChat, UB browser, and today’s headlines have been promoted for several days, plus free… If the venue is bigger, the number of people will double again, I won’t be surprised.”

Zhang Xiaohai said: “Mr. Zhao, whose concert do you think this is?”

Zhao Peng shook his head and said, “I don’t know either.”

Then, he glanced at his watch and frowned, “It’s almost 20 o’clock, why is there still a lot of darkness around the stage?”

In fact…

Not only Zhao Peng was puzzled, but there were also many people in the audience with similar doubts.

The spectators in the venue were just confused, and those who just grabbed tickets outside the venue were a bit grumpy.

“What’s going on? It’s pitch black, where’s the screen?”

“It doesn’t matter if you don’t let it in, you don’t even have a screen?”

“I knew I wouldn’t be here.”

…………

When everyone was puzzled and discussed, a helicopter quietly stopped next to the stadium.

After  Omi, Xia Bing, and Xia Xue got off the plane, they walked straight to the VIP seat at the front of the gymnasium.

At this time, Hu Tian, ​​Chu Yunyue, Qiu Ziqian, Huang Ling, Han Tian, ​​Song Jiaxin and others were all here.

After they saw  Omi, they all showed a touch of joy.

“You are finally here, I thought I was going to be late.”

“You are Xia Bing and Xia Xue? They are so cute.”

“Sit down, sit down.”

Xia Bing and Xia Xue are very introverts. Originally, they were a little shy to see so many people.

However, after being greeted by them for a while, it finally calmed down.

 Omi let out a sigh of relief looking at the relaxed and harmonious expressions of the girls.

In fact…

He also went through some ideological struggles when he let the girls meet.

All the women knew that  Omi had other women.

However, they never met each other.

 Omi didn’t know what would happen after they actually met.

However… this day always has to be faced.

After all, there is still a long life.

It is impossible for  Omi to isolate everyone in a different world.

Therefore, he finally took this opportunity to let them meet first.

It seems that things are pretty good now.

 Omi swept over the women one by one, and when he saw Song Jiaxin, he couldn’t help but use the real eye on her.

[Face value: 95]

[Favorite degree: 89.5]

See here…

 Omi couldn’t help but stunned.

89.5?

what’s the situation?

Favorability ~www.novelhall.com~ with a decimal point?

Also… Song Jiaxin’s opinion of her last time seemed to be 89.

Has it increased now?

Tan Shengyu, who was sitting in the back, looked at the row of beauties sitting around  Omi, and exclaimed sincerely: “As expected of Brother Fan!”

“Then you need to talk about it?” Liu Yuhang said.

Sun Luguo, who was sitting next to him, glanced at his watch and said, “It’s almost 20 o’clock, why is it still dark on the stage?”

“Is it not ready yet?” Zhang Bin asked.

“Wow!”

Just when they were puzzled, a soft noise suddenly appeared on the stage, attracting everyone’s attention.
