"Chief Wang, where was Six's body found?" Elder Chen asked in a low voice.
Chief Wang replied, "By the river."
Elder Chen's eyes narrowed. "Is there surveillance camera footage?"
Chief Wang shook his head. "The surveillance system is still under construction. It will be completed by the end of the year.
"The higher-ups ordered us not to make this matter public for the time being.
"After all, Di Tai is still on the loose, and there has been yet another death. If the public were to learn about it, it would definitely cause more panic among the residents. It would just make things worse.
"So, we cannot investigate the death of your disciple for the time being. We are genuinely sorry.
"Right now, our focus is capturing Di Tai. So we hope you can understand."
"Understand?" Old Chen snorted. "My disciple is dead now, and you want me to
Chief Wang squeezed his hands and gritted. "Elder Chen, we will definitely find the culprit after."
Elder Chen raised his hand and said coldly, "There's no need for that.
"Given your current situation, capturing Di Tai is a fool's talk."
Minister Wang smiled apologetically. "Then what solutions do you have now?"
Old Chen said directly, "My disciple died because he was searching for Di Tai. Double what you're paying me."
"Ah, this…" Minister Wang's expression turned grim when he heard that.
"Why? Is my disciple's life not worth this price?"
When Elder Chen said this, he exuded an indescribable aura.
Chief Wang and the others suddenly felt a chill run down their spines, and their bodies trembled uncontrollably.
"Alright, we'll double it, we'll double it!" Chief Wang was terrified and had no choice but to agree.
Qin Chuan shopped around with Zhao Xuanxuan the entire afternoon before returning home with a bunch of snacks.
"Xuanxuan, I'm going out for a while," Qin Chuan mentioned.
Zhao Xuanxuan asked, "Are you going to look for that lawyer?"
Qin Chuan shook his head. "No, I have other matters to attend to."
"Really?" Zhao Xuanxuan did not believe him. "Why don't I go with you!"
Qin Chuan directly rejected her suggestion. "Don't. I really have something else to do. It has to do with work."
"Work?" Zhao Xuanxuan was doubtful. "What work?"
Qin Chuan replied without thinking, "I'm a lecturer at a training institution."
Zhao Xuanxuan was stunned for a moment before she laughed out loud.
"Brother, you're really making me crack up. How can you teach anyone with that silly mouth of yours?"
"I don't care if you believe me. I can't be bothered to explain it to you now."
Qin Chuan pretended to be annoyed.
He knew Zhao Xuanxuan well.
According to his memory, she loved to bicker with him. One absolutely shouldn't get serious with her. He should stop while he was ahead.
Qin Chuan's move was effective.
Zhao Xuanxuan no longer questioned him.
"Brother, remember to buy a roast duck when you come back. You know which restaurant to get it from," said Zhao Xuanxuan.
"Got it!" Qin Chuan gave her an 'OK' sign.
After leaving his apartment, Qin Chuan heaved a sigh of relief. Finally, the sun was about to set.
Looking around, Qin Chuan chose a remote corner to wield his flying sword. He flew in the direction of Mountain Hu.
Gold Sea City, also known as the Magical City, was the most developed city in Xia Country.
It was heaven for the upper-class society.
They lived a life of luxury here every day.
Best of Tang's Time was the city's most luxurious residence. It had a total of 88 floors and was constructed from the best materials.
As a result, their apartments were costly, about 200,000 yuan per square meter.
The people who lived here were wealthy with an average net worth was over a hundred million.
The 80th level.
In the spacious hall, a young man in a purple-gold bathrobe sat in front of the coffee table. He was on a video chat with someone on the computer.
"Seventh Young Master, after a day of tracking and investigation, I've found out everything you want."
There was a man wearing sunglasses on the computer screen.
The young man had an aloof expression on his face. He held a wine glass in his hand. He savored red wine that was as bright as blood.
The screen changed, and a page appeared. It looked like a person's file.
There was an identification photo on it.
Upon closer inspection, it was Qin Chuan.
Apart from the photos, there was information about his birth date, birth location, name, etc.
The contents were so meticulous that it even included things he had done before, people he had fancied, how many times he had masturb*ted… and more.
The young man sipped on his red wine as he read Qin Chuan's personal information on the computer.
After a while, the young man's face became somber, and his gaze turned cold.
"In that case, the two of them are not related by blood at all. He is her older brother in name, but in reality, that might become a different kind of relationship, for example, a couple."
The young man's tone was calm, but it felt forbidden and oppressive.
The man in sunglasses said, "According to our research over the past few days, their relationship is very intimate. People who don't know them might really think that they are a couple."
As he spoke, a few photos appeared on the computer screen.
They were taken at a train station, a vegetable market, and an apartment…
These photos were of Qin Chuan and Zhao Xuanxuan.
The young man looked at them over and over again, and strong killing intent appeared in his gaze.
"I want him to disappear."
The young man had to grit his teeth. His hand, which held the wine glass, trembled without end. His fingers clenched tightly, and the veins on the back of his hand bulged.
It was the crisp sound of glass breaking.
The wine glass shattered, and red wine spilled all over the floor.
On the computer screen, the man in sunglasses pushed up his sunglasses and said in a deep voice, "Seventh Young Master, are you sure?"
The young man wiped the wine stains off his hands and said coolly, "Just give me a price!"
"Okay. Make sure to leave no trace."
"Rest assured, Seventh Young Master!
"We are professionals.
Now that Di Tai is in Beichuan, we can shift the blame to him and ensure that there'll be nothing left behind."
The young man nodded. "Remember, don't let the old man find out that I contacted you."
The man in sunglasses: "We understand."
"Good. Our conversation today ends here. I hope you can give me some good news the next time I contact you."
The young man was about to end the video call.
All of a sudden, the man in sunglasses on the screen said loudly, "Seventh Young Master, wait a moment. I just received a video. Please take a look."
Then, a video appeared on the computer screen.
A closer look revealed Zhao Xuanxuan being pestered by Six.
The young man's eyes burned with rage.
"When did this happen?" the young man roared.
The man in sunglasses said, "At noon. Our men have been keeping watch, but at that time, there was an emergency with the higher-ups. We stepped away for more than half an hour. That was why this happened. "
The young man calmed himself down and said, "Investigate that person and teach him a lesson—the kind that he will never forget."
The video call ended.
The young man checked everything carefully and cleared all the chat records without leaving a trace.
He stood up, picked up a brand new goblet, poured red wine into it, and went to the balcony.
As he started at the wide river in front of him, a cold smile appeared on his face.
"No one is allowed to touch the woman who belongs to me, Li Yeqi…"
