Grandpa Lu was happily tucked away in his Mediterranean-style mansion home in the suburbs doting on his first great-grandchild, Little Jun. The child was kept busy everyday in order to distract Little Jun from feeling homesick and missing his Mommy, Mama, Papa, cat cousins, and everyone at Dragon Palace Home #10.
However, Grandpa Lu's great-grandfatherly bliss was interrupted when one of his spies in Jin Corporation informed him about some members of the board of directors and Jin branch families complaining about Kang Huizhong's involvement in the custody battle. Because it involved his beloved great-grandbaby Little Jun, he was instantly enraged. He immediately called Jin Liwei on the phone.
"Hello? Hello! Is this Liwei my boy?! What's taking you so long to answer the damn phone?! I want to know!"
"Yes, Grandpa Lu. This is Liwei. How may I help you? And I actually picked up your call on the first ring," Jin Liwei answered in a calm tone while lowering the volume on the speakerphone because the old man's booming voice was many times louder than usual in his anger.
"Answering the first ring is still too long! You should answer my calls before the bloody phone even rings! I'm your beloved grandpa, you pinhead! Or have you forgotten?"
Jin Liwei smiled at Grandpa Lu's unreasonable demand but was able to stop himself from chuckling or he would suffer a long round of scolding. "Alright, Grandpa Lu. Although I'm not a psychic so I don't know when you'll call me, I'll do my best to answer your calls before the phone even rings next time."
"Hah! Why are you taking those stupid words of mine so seriously, you rascal? Don't you know that your grandpa is just joking?! Bah! You're so boring. I pity Xiulan my girl for having to deal with the likes of you!"
"It's because she loves me and accepts me for who I am," Jin Liwei replied, proud as a peacock.
"Bahahaha! Well, you are my grandson after all! You know when to strike early to bag the girl before other flies and cockroaches start buzzing around her. I'm sure your Grandfather Jin in heaven is also very proud of how you got yourself an excellent wife!"
Jin Liwei puffed out his chest, a smug expression on his face, looking prouder by the second. "My wife is the most excellent woman in the world."
"Yeah, yeah. One's wife should be the best in all husbands' eyes! If not, then you romanced the wrong lady!"
"Yes, as a husband you should—huh? Wait a minute, you rascal! Why are we suddenly talking about romancing your wife?! I want to know! This isn't the reason why this old man called you! How dare you distract your beloved grandpa?! I have important business to talk to you!!!"
'You're the one who started talking about this subject,' Jin Liwei thought but didn't say out loud. "Alright, Grandpa Lu. May I know the reason why you called me?"
"Hmph! Your grandpa called you because of the urgent matter concerning the well-being our Little Junjun! Nobody is more important than my beloved great-grandbaby!"

Jin Liwei's expression instantly became serious. He already knew what Grandpa Lu meant and his purpose for calling but still listened patiently while the old man spoke in his booming voice.
"This old man heard from my birds in the company that some peabrained idiots are harping and complaining like smelly chimpanzee's farts about that boy Kang Huizhong's involvement in Little Junjun's custody case! How dare those nincompoops meddle in the matters concerning my beloved great-grandbaby?! And how dare they complain about that boy Kang Huizhong's involvement in the case when I, Lu Jianhong, even asked my friend who was a former jurist in the damn international court of justice to also step in! Are they looking down on this old man and my friend?! I want to know! They're all asking for a bloody spanking!
"Well?! How come you're not doing anything yet?! How could you allow those chimpanzees' butts to order you around like that?! Are you still the President-CEO or are you just a useless decoration for show?! I want to know!"
Grandpa Lu's harsh words didn't offend Jin Liwei at all. He continued to stay calm yet serious. "Don't worry, Grandpa Lu. I already handled this issue. Those people won't dare oppose Atty. Kang's involvement in Little Jun's custody case anymore." He explained to the old man how he cancelled the expensive unwritten perks those people had been enjoying for many years. "The cancellation of those perks will surely hurt them and force them to try pleasing me again in order to coax me into returning the perks in the future."
"Hah! Good, very good! But not enough! As long as I, Lu Jianhong, is still alive, nobody is allowed to put the welfare of my great-grandbabies at a disadvantage! Give me a complete list of all the names of those idiots!"
"What are you going to do with the list?"
"I'll fire all of them, that's what! I own half of the company so I have the power to do that! Watch me do it!"
Jin Liwei sighed and massaged his temples. "Grandpa Lu, I know that you're angry right now—"
"I know. I am, too."
"You don't sound like it!"
"It's because I'm controlling myself."
Jin Liwei continued speaking with patience. "Grandpa Lu, firing the majority of the members of the board of directors will damage the people's trust in our company. We could get away with that if we're still a national company but we're now a multinational corporation and—"
"Fine! I'll just fire one or two then! No, make that three! Make an example out of them."
"Alright, Grandpa Lu. You'll receive the list in five minutes."
That same day, those "chimpanzees' butts" were all regretting their decision of making a big deal out of Kang Huizhong's involvement in the child custody case. Not only did they re-awaken King Yama, but they also summoned the rare, explosive, volcanic rage of the Emperor Emeritus, the true power behind the company, and ended up suffering the full brunt of both authorities.
