“I can’t tell tell you,” the man managed to say with great difficulty.
“Do you plan on taking your secret to hell?” Qin Chu looked at him coldly.
“I can’t” Then, that man’s neck tilted, and he died
Qin Chu seemed to have expected this to happen
Whoever shot him was a professional assassin who managed to make a fatal wound with one shot
The only reason he was able to stay alive until Qin Chu came was because Rick gave him a huge shot of cardiac stimulant right in his heart.
“So, he didn’t say anything, did he?” Rick asked.
“He won’t say. Someone probably blackmailed him or threatened him with his family.” Qin Chu analyzed.
Rick nodded his head. “Have you offended someone recently? Do you think Su Yu did this?”
“No, Su Yu would never do anything this low. Whoever did this is despicable and vicious, murdering whoever poses as a threat to him, at every turn. It doesn’t sound like Su Yu’s style”
“If the enemy is in the dark and you are out in the open, it’s going to be problematic,” Rick said with a heavy tone.
“It’s fine, I think he just wants to stir up trouble in my life but hasn’t actually threatened my safety I am worried, though, about my wife. Rick, if I’m out of town, please keep an eye on her and don’t let anyone near her.”
“I got it.” Rick nodded.
If someone wanted to teach Qin Chu a lesson, the best way to do so would be to kidnap Huo Mian
What Huo Mian didn’t know was that every day, from when she left for work until she got home, there had always been people watching her and protecting her.
Because Qin Chu didn’t want anything to happen to her
Huo Mian was already deep asleep when Qin Chu got home
He showered in another bathroom because he didn’t want to wake Huo Mian up.
Then, he tiptoed onto the bed and gently embraced her
Right now, Huo Mian was in dreamland
She dreamt that she was standing in a giant forest
A man stood across from her, but she couldn’t see his face.
“Who are you?” Huo Mian asked.
“Mian I’m your father.”
“Father?” Huo Mian repeated; that voice did not belong to Huo Zhenghai.
“Who are you?” Huo Mian wanted to walk up to him so she could see him better.
However, no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t move
“Mian I’m your father.”
Then, the man slowly disappeared into the distance
“Dad don’t go.” Huo Mian suddenly woke up with a start.
Qin Chu immediately hugged her. “Did you have a bad dream?”
Huo Mian breathed heavily
“I dreamed of a man who said that he was my father.”
“Don’t worry, I’ve been investigating this whole time, I will definitely help you find your parents.”
Qin Chu knew that ever since Huo Mian found out that she wasn’t Huo Zhenghai’s daughter, she had been wanting to look for her real family.
Sadly, this process had been met with endless difficulties. Someone must’ve been placing obstacles in their way on purpose.
Plus, their enemy was in the dark, and they were out in the open, so it made things even more difficult
“Honey do you think they may have died already?” Huo Mian asked in sorrow.
“Of course not, I think both your parents are alive. You might even have siblings,” Qin Chu gently stroked her beautiful hair and consoled her.
– The next morning –
After Qin Chu drove Huo Mian to South Side for work, he got on a plane and headed to T City.
The accident hadn’t been completely dealt with, and the person responsible for this tofu-dreg project, Wang Dahai, had died. (TL Note: a tofu-dreg project is where a construction used shitty material to save cost which the construction company takes into their own pocket. Then, the construction is as weak as tofu dreg.)
Qin Chu couldn’t make a dead person take responsibility
Therefore, he had to be there in person. If push came to pull, he would take all the blame. After all, 4 people died.
Including Wang Dahai, five people had lost their lives in this accident
Qin Chu suddenly had a feeling that this secret enemy was terrifying, even more so than Su Yu, because he could control the life and death of people.
Friday arrived in the blink of an eye
At the end of the day, before Huo Mian even went out the front entrance, she saw Huo Siqian standing outside, in front of his black Porsche.
“Little Sister Mian, is it time to come home with me today?” Huo Siqian smiled as he sucked on a lollipop.
