“This… What’s happening here?” the swollen-faced Yang Zebiao asked. He pointed curiously at Miao Ying who was on the ground. “Just now… How did this person shine? So magical!” he whispered to Cheng Lingfei. Yang Zebiao clapped his hands as excitedly as a child as he spoke.
Cheng Lingfei’s icy exterior began to melt after seeing Yang Zebiao. She pulled on his arms intimately, turning him toward the direction of the gaming console. “It’s nothing! Come on hubby! Go and play games with Jiang’er. It’s not every day he comes home from abroad. Don’t you want to spend some time with him?”
“Sure, sure! Console games are fun! I love playing them!” Yang Zebiao said as he clapped excitedly. He bolted toward the little boy at the gaming console. Like a clumsy penguin, he staggered as he moved quickly across the room. His body was out of sync.
After Yang Zebiao left, Cheng Lingfei bent down and took Miao Ying’s pistol and mobile phone. However, Miao Ying’s phone was password locked. She tried a few times but was unable to unlock it.
“Sister, sister…” Just then, a bespectacled man flew in from outside. Upon seeing Miao Ying on the ground, his face turned as white as a sheet. “Isn’t… isn’t that the female cop? How did she manage to find this place?”
“Yes.” Cheng Lingfei handed him Miao Ying’s phone. “Ah Guang, crack this quickly and find out what other information they have. Also, keep a lookout for any signs of movement outside. I have already notified Ah Shui, and we need to leave here now!”
“This… this…” The bespectacled man shuddered, his whole body trembling as he took the phone. “Sister… are we really just going to give up? You’ve put your blood, sweat, and tears into this foundation!”
“What’s the use of hard work?” Cheng Lingfei said nonchalantly. “What’s going to come will eventually come, and what needs to be dealt with has to be dealt with.”
“But…” Ah Guang began as he pointed at Miao Ying, “we’ve wasted so much effort cleaning up all the loose ends. Jiang Ke and Yu Fusheng are both dead. How did these people find this place? Sis, please think carefully! Hasn’t there been a little misunderstanding here? Were you not just a little presumptuous? Perhaps… she only wanted to understand the situation? I don’t understand why you let her see Jiang’er. Why did you even bring her up the stairs? Wouldn’t everything have been fine if you had just found a reason to distract her?”
Cheng Lingfei sighed. “You still don’t get it, do you? It wouldn’t have mattered if it had been any other policeman who had come, but it just had to be Miao Ying. That’s just wrong!”
“Eh… why?” Ah Guang was confused.
“At this point in time, she should not be in Gao Lanqi!”
“What?” Ah Guang still looked completely lost.
“Zhao Yu jumped into the Hong Ming River. Miao Ying is his girlfriend, so unless the police had already found his body there’s no way she would have left Yao Ming!” Cheng Lingfei said confidently. “Furthermore, seeing as there was an incident on the outskirts of Jin, if Miao Ying really wanted to investigate the truth she should have been there and so would never have come to Gao Lanqi! Not only did she come to Gao Lanqi, but she came straight over to find me. Think about it: how could this be a coincidence?”
“Ah…” Ah Guang finally understood.
“If it was simply to inquire about Wu Fangfang, they could have sent any policeman!” Cheng Lingfei continued. “Miao Ying, the Special Investigation Group leader, surely has more important things to deal with. Was there really any need for her to personally pay me a visit? I had wanted to meet her to test the situation, and I let her see Jiang’er on purpose. She was indeed difficult to handle. No matter how I tried she didn’t let anything slip. But she wasn’t smart enough. If she was, she wouldn’t have asked about the kid. The minute she asked, I knew what had to be done. Since she was already here, I couldn’t let her leave no matter what. If she had left, the situation would not have been within our control any longer. It’s just… She’s very alert and has violent tendencies, I couldn’t take the risk. So, I had to bring her upstairs and keep her controlled using Ah Biao as a distraction…”
“Then what should we do next?” Ah Guang asked, anxiously swallowing his saliva, “should we kill her and make a run for it?”
“No, there’s no need to panic!” Cheng Lingfei said surprisingly confidently. “If you think about this from another perspective, because Miao Ying came here personally it also means that they’ve yet to suspect us! So, we still have time…”
“Big sis! Big sis!” Before Cheng Lingfei could finish her sentence, four to five well-built bodyguards came running to her. These were her subordinates.
“Ah Guang,” Cheng Lingfei commanded calmly, “complete the two tasks I’ve assigned to you but be quick. We have to find out where the police are and understand their force!”
“Okay!” Ah Guang said, staggering as he ran downstairs.
“The rest of you, bring this female cop to the study room and tie her up! When she wakes up I want to question her personally,” Cheng Lingfei said, waving her hand at one group. Facing another group, she continued, “You guys, help my husband and child pack up. We will be executing our escape plan immediately!”
“Understood!” The group of lackeys was used to mindlessly executing all of Cheng Lingfei’s commands.
“Sis! Wait! Bad news!” Just as Cheng Lingfei was finishing giving her orders, Ah Guang came running back in frantically with a tablet in his arms.
“What now?” Cheng Lingfei asked with annoyance. “Can you not make a mountain out of a molehill? When will you learn how to be calm?”
“Sis, I just received news that there is no movement outside and the female cop is, in fact, acting alone!” Ah Guang said while trying to catch his breath.
“Didn’t you say it was bad news?” Cheng Lingfei asked coldly, staring at him intently.
“No!” Ah Guang said, passing her the tablet. “There’s no sign of movement from the police, but look! There’s someone in her car!”
“What?!” Cheng Lingfei was shocked and quickly took the tablet to check. It was as Ah Guang had said: there was someone sitting in Miao Ying’s jeep which was parked outside her house!
“She… wasn’t she acting alone?!” Ah Guang asked, pointing at Miao Ying.
Cheng Lingfei suddenly realized something and quickly zoomed in on the video feed. The person inside Miao Ying’s car had a surgical mask and sunglasses on. The person was also constantly moving and seemed to be searching for something. There was a laptop in his hands.
“There’s a laptop!” Cheng Lingfei immediately looked at one of her lackeys. “Catch that person and bring him here with the laptop!”
“Roger!” The lackeys quickly stopped what they were doing and ran downstairs at full speed.
“Wait a minute…” After everyone ran down the stairs, Cheng Lingfei seemed to have a realization and screamed in panic. Then, she raised her hands and threw Miao Ying’s pistol down. “Xiao Yun, catch!”
One of the lackeys reached out his hand and caught the pistol.
“Remember, capture him alive!” Cheng Lingfei ordered. Everyone rushed towards the door.
Cheng Lingfei placed the tablet in front of her to monitor the situation. All her lackeys were trained professionals, and all of them were carrying guns. It took no effort for them to catch the person inside Miao Ying’s car and retrieve the laptop.
“Let me go, let me go!” A wave of noise came from the living room, and a rough, bull-like voice could be heard. “I am a cop! What right do you f*ckers have to capture me?!”
“Shut up!” said the lackey called Xiao Yun as he punched him in the chest. In a swift motion, he removed the man’s mask and sunglasses.
When Cheng Lingfei and Ah Guang finally saw the person’s face clearly, they felt that karma had come back to bite them in the behind. They collapsed to the floor in shock.
“Living…” Ah Guang said in shock. “It’s like seeing a living ghost! How can it be him?!”
