The injured Xie family’s subordinates were all sent to the hospital. As for Xie Limo, the guards that Xie Liu brought formed a protective circle around him, shielding him from any possible threat.
When the ambulance and fire engine arrived, the villa had already been burned to ashes. The firefighters were only in time to extinguish the fire that had spread to somewhere else.
All throughout this, Xie Limo didn’t say a single word. He simply stood the whole night before the debris, solemn and in pain.
The order and investigation at the scene were maintained and conducted by a group that was specially assembled and assigned by Xie Liu. Based on their initial investigation, the Xie family knew that this was a deliberate arson.
The traces of evidence were sparse at the scene, and they had a hard time searching for them. Nonetheless, the harder it was for them to find any leads, the more careful and thorough they were in their search.
Everyone began to loathe the Demon. If something were to happen to Young Madam, no one in the international assassin group that the Demon belonged to would be spared.
When dawn finally broke, Xie Liu approached Xie Limo and said slowly, “Young Master Xie, we didn’t find Young Madam. The shadow guards in the villa have regained consciousness and said that they had rescued and escorted Young Madam out, but they encountered a small explosion and lost consciousness after that. In my opinion, Young Madam is still safe.”
Xie Liu’s words made Xie Limo’s dark and gloomy heart jump, and his upright body that stood rigid all night swayed.
Young Master Xie turned around and looked at Xie Liu. He answered in a stern and cold voice, “Eradicate every single person and force that is linked to what happened today. Deploy all our forces in Ning An City. We must capture the Demon at all costs. Disseminate her photos and offer high rewards to those who will provide leads. Leave no stone unturned.”
Xie Liu’s heart was racing madly, and his scalp felt numb. Young Master Xie was going all out.
A day passed by, and they still couldn’t locate Young Madam. However, they had a new lead—the people living around the villa mentioned that they had seen someone rescuing Yun Bixue. They couldn’t pinpoint exactly who the person was, but they all said that the person was a man.
In the end, the Demon was caught and taken back in the strongest chains the Xie family had, but Young Master Xie was still not satisfied. Finally, Xie Liu found a skilled technician and sent him over on a private plane. He was specially ordered to use the strongest ropes to hold the Demon down at her humerus bones. The ropes were so strong that it could pierce through her arms.
The Demon was the world’s second-best assassin, but this critical acclaim did not stop her ear-splitting screams. She even bit her tongue in pain, but Xie Liu held her chin down.
Her bloodshot eyes looked in fear and trepidation at Xie Liu. It was too terrifying. She started to regret her actions when she fully realized the situation she was in. No matter what, she shouldn’t have provoked the Young Master from the Xie family. It was all the Viper’s fault. He was in a much better plight because, despite being a dwarf, he managed to escape.
In addition to that, those noble families in Ning An City had reached a consensus with the assassin group. They handed out a huge amount of money, and it landed her in this state—she was the one who received the ultimate punishment.
A group of crap trying to kill Xie Limo! If Xie Limo couldn’t be murdered so easily, why hasn’t anyone done so already?
It would be better if she remained imprisoned. Those noble families had taken advantage of her, and she didn’t even manage to escape. Instead, she felt more miserable now.
This time, the Demon moaned and grunted in agony. She wanted to say that she would speak—she would tell them everything she knew in exchange for less misery.
However, Xie Liu explained, “Demon, save your breath. No one can appease Young Master Xie this time. You’re already considered lucky. The information you gave is worthless because Young Master Xie won’t show any mercy this time. He doesn’t even require proof anymore. A mere suspicion can make him eradicate the other party and leave nothing for him. Do you understand now?”
After listening to Xie Liu’s words, her consciousness gave up, and she passed out while still bound in chains and ropes.
Xie Limo was currently sitting in a house. He hadn’t had proper rest since that blazing fire broke out. Although he still looked classy and elegant, he still appeared depressed. He even lost his will to say anything. Besides giving out orders, he didn’t utter a single word at all.
