Chapter 133: His Daughter Is...
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
It was more than enough to inflict some real damage.
Black Three endured it well initially but half way through he started moaning in pain.
However, Xiao Mo and Xia Zhi didn't let their offense down.
After all, they were dealing with a professional assassin; showing mercy was pointless.
Xinghe wasn't at all affected by Black Three's groans.
She surfed the internet calmly as if there was nothing out of the ordinary in the room.
Finally, she opened her mouth and said, "That's enough. I have something I want to ask him."
Xiao Mo and Xia Zhi stopped and panted from the effort. As Xia Zhi had learnt from the bodyguard, he straightened Black Three up and warned menacingly, "You'd better answer whatever my sister asks or there's more where that came from."
Black Three spat in his face and chuckled, "Even if you threaten to kill me, I won't say a word! Do it if you dare!"
He was certain they didn't have the guts to actually take another person's life.
Xia Zhi retorted angrily, "Don't think we wouldn't!"
"Well, come at me!" Black Three roared. He laughed shamelessly, taunting them.
Xiao Mo and Xia Zhi were about to continue the aggression when Xinghe uttered calmly, "There's no need for that."
She looked at Black Three and smiled enigmatically, "There's no need to waste everyone's energy doing this the hard way, wouldn't you agree?"
Black Three was furious.
So, I took the previous beating for nothing?
"Sis, he won't admit to his dealings without being taught a lesson!" Xia Zhi said angrily.
"I already have his admission from earlier on tape," Xinghe commented.
Black Three chuckled disingenuously. "You think that kind of evidence can be used in the court of law? I can have it nullified because you recorded it illegally! Try again, missy!"
"Just what kind of benefits did Wu Rong give you that you're so willing to take the fall for her? We have so many witnesses here willing to testify against you, so your crime is already a surefire conviction. Why not give Wu Rong up to lighten your sentence?" Xia Zhi was curious.
Black Three smiled cryptically in lieu of an answer.
However, his eyes spoke volumes.
No matter what Xinghe's group did to him, he would not reveal anything. Even with the threat of death!
Xiao Mo and Xia Zhi stared at one another in confusion.
Why is he so protective of Wu Rong?
Xinghe's voice suddenly piped up, answering their question, "The reason he won't incriminate Wu Rong is because Xia Wushuang is his daughter."
Xiao Mo and Xia Zhi widened their eyes in shock.
Black Three also stared widely at her.
How can she possibly know that?
Other than himself and Wu Rong, no one else knew about the fact that Wushuang is his daughter!
"Sis, what are you saying?" Xia Zhi questioned.
Xinghe turned her laptop around and read the information on screen out loud, "Zhao Long, nickname Black Three, is - like Wu Rong - from City T's Province An. Twenty five years ago, both of them worked alongside each other in a factory. However, two years after that, Wu Rong left Province An, while Zhao Long arrived at City T ten years ago. From then onwards, his account would have a sizeable deposit made every year. Even though the person who gave him the money annually was careful enough to cover up the money trail by using cash remittance but at about the same time, Wu Rong's account would be missing the same amount of money. It's not hard to connect the dots. Also, ten years ago, Zhao Long visited the hospital for a parentage test. Am I right so far?"
Even though Black Three couldn't understand the data on the laptop screen but every word Xinghe said was nothing but the truth.
