When she heard that, it heartened Xuxu. Although she didn’t enjoy hanging out with Ming Ansheng in the past, she couldn’t deny that he was a capable and reliable man.
She helplessly hugged Yan Rusheng’s neck and rested her head on his arm.
When Ming Ansheng got the call, he put everything aside and rushed to A University.
Yan Rusheng gave him Bai Jing’s number. On the way there, he had contacted Bai Jing and they agreed to meet at the East Gate.
When he got off the car, he saw Bai Jing pacing by the gate. “Bai Jing.”
Bai Jing heard him calling her and she looked over in worry. She ran up to him and said, “I’ve searched everywhere, but I didn’t find her.”
Her eyes were red. One look and it was apparent that she had been crying.
“You saw her run into the park?” Ming Ansheng asked. Without waiting for her reply, he was already sprinting towards it.
Su Yue’s voice rang in his head. She was calling out to him, a mixture of emotions.
His worry was indescribable.
At the park, people occupied all the benches by the pathway.
There was a group of girls, some elderly, but most of them were couples.
Ming Ansheng ran one round around the entire park. He became excited whenever he saw a girl with the same build as Su Yue.
But whenever he got his hopes up, disappointment followed.
It was an open park, so many people were entering it.
Ming Ansheng went to the main entrance and retrieved the surveillance footage from the security guards.
“Here.” Su Yue’s figure appeared in the footage. After she had run into the park, she sprinted towards another exit.
The security guard paused the footage and told Ming Ansheng, “This leads to the train station for line eight.”
Ming Ansheng was already on his way there before the security guard could finish his sentence. He was drenched in perspiration. When he reached the road, he watched the endless stream of cars on the road.
His mind was filled with images of Su Yue being kidnapped. By the time he had found her, she was shivering and covered in blood.
His heart clenched.
She hadn’t fully learned and gotten used to interacting with people. She took an extreme approach to things. What if she met some crooks?
The more Ming Ansheng thought about it, the more uneasy he became.
He was at the train station for line eight. There were entrances on both sides of the road. Ming Ansheng spent some time looking for her by the roadsides, though in vain. Then he ran into the train station.
The train station seemed deserted.
He looked around and searched every nook and cranny.
Bai Jing followed behind him. Keeping up with him had exhausted her. She said, panting, “Young Master Ming, you should check the surveillance cameras.”
Without hesitation, Ming Ansheng went to the person-in-charge. He watched all the footages but Su Yue was nowhere in sight.
That meant she didn’t take the train anywhere.
‘Little Lass, it’s been four or five hours already. The sun is almost setting. Where did you go?’
The roads were wide in the suburbs and the air was much fresher than in the city. The soles on Ming Ansheng’s shoes were almost worn out.
He had watched all the security footages in the area, but there was still no sign of Su Yue. It was like she had vanished into thin air.
“Have some water.”
Bai Jing had been following Ming Ansheng. She was exhausted and couldn’t walk any further. They walked past a roadside shop and bought two bottles of water. She passed him one.
The sun was setting and the sky was a vast of red. Ming Ansheng took the bottle of cold water from her, opened it, and took a huge gulp. He then lifted the bottle above his head and emptied it over himself.
