Ye Jinwen tossed the folder on the coffee table with a sigh.
“See? I can’t get any information out of her. I doubt it’ll be easy for you to get information on the whereabouts of the mystery person through Lu Mian.”
He knew that the man had seen the entire process of his therapy with Lu Mian.
The man laughed deeply, his voice like the cello. He leaned back, stretching his arm out of the backing of the sofa.
Every single movement was elegant.
Every single image was so perfect they could be used as screensavers.
Civil scum! Ye Jinwen thought to himself. The man’s harmless face had fooled countless men and women, but he had never paid any attention to them.
This person was at the top of the hard to get to know list, Xiao Qimo.
The only heir to the Beijing Xiao family.
His family had a strong political background, and he was unpredictable.
No one had seen him strike, but no one dared to overlook him.
“Seventh Brother, don’t worry. Even if we can’t get anything out of Lu Mian, we can go to the four other victims. They were all rescued by the mysterious person, I’m sure we can get something out of them.”
“There’s no use.” His slender fingers propped up his glasses. “This mysterious person codenamed Thirteen had erased all the data on the four other people, leaving their status as deceased. We can’t find anything on their new identities.”
“He’s that good? What about Lu Mian?”
“I think my people found her before Thirteen could wipe out the data.”
“Then isn’t your trip to Wu City wasted?”
“Not really.” Xiao Qimo looked at the display and raised his chin. “There’s still her.”
Ye Jinwen understood. It seemed like Lu Mian was their only lead to finding Thirteen the mystery person.
But he was out of ideas. He wondered if Xiao Qimo, the microexpression reader that police all over the world fought to hire, had found anything.
“Seventh Brother, have you found anything after staring at the footage for so long?”
Xiao Qimo tilted his head and thought for a moment before he curled his lips.
“Huh?” Ye Jinwen cried out loud as he watched the man bend over and continue to watch the footage.
That was all he got out of all that?
What was weirder was that…
The thousand year bachelor who had never dated in all twenty two years of his life, Big boss Mo, was praising a woman?
Ye Jinwen shuddered and shook the unimaginable image from his head.
“Actually, I can understand Lu Mian. A person’s nonchalantness is proportional to their inner hurt. They may seem like they don’t care about anything, but they are very guarded. She was the last to be rescued, meaning that she was controlled by those people for two years. No one knows what she has gone through…”
At this thought, Ye Jinwen’s handsome baby face was tinted with disgust.
Two years ago on 26 July, the kidnappers kidnapped people all over the country.
They kidnapped two family members at the same time. The ransom was five million for one and fifteen million for two.
The families of the victims were all well to do, so they had the ability to pay or borrow the ransom.
No one gave up instantly, and some families rapidly gathered fifteen million and reunited with their family.
The remaining were families who had only managed to raise five million.
They could only choose between A and B.
It was either they go bankrupt trying to raise the ransom or they cold-heartedly give one up. There was no other way.
This was the first time such a twisted kidnapping case had happened.
At the end of it all, the kidnappers disappeared with five victims. No one was able to find them. Underground forces were dispatched too, but there was no result…
And Master Mo of the Imperial Country began his journey on the fringes of danger and darkness in his bid to find the truth.
