Chapter 224 - Weird
“Then let Uncle Yan take care of it, dad… I can’t go back anymore.” Ruoguang said, too terrified of Lin Yi- Tiandi was right, Ruoming was braver than he was.
“You piece of trash!! My relationship with Old Yan is mutual, he helps me because I help him! He does something for me and I’ll owe him! Why would I ask him to do something so unimportant?” Tiandi couldn’t believe this- why was his son this much of a pussy?
“If it’s unimportant then let’s just let it go……” Ruoguang said weakly.
“Christ, fine, you stay out of this. Scram!” Tiandi said with a wave of his hand- this son of his was nothing like he’d been when he was younger!
Ruoguang turned and made his way back to his room, leaving a very pissed off Zou Tiandi in the living room.
Ruoming, on the other hand, had heard everything- he’d also seen the injuries on his hands. As troubling as it was, it seemed that he had to postpone his plans… What would his brother be able to do with those hands?
Something like this needed to be done in the shadows, and he wouldn’t be at ease if it weren’t his own brother helping him. Zhong Pinliang calling him out Monday morning didn’t do much to help raise his spirits.
“Ming Bro, how’re the preparations coming along? You know, that plan I told you about.” Pinliang said as he offered Ruoming a cigarette.
“Let’s not talk about that…” Ruoming said with a wave of his hand. “Something happened to my brother, and he can’t help me anymore- I was just fussing over this! Looks like I’ll have to postpone the thing.”
Pinliang was overjoyed at the news! He’d planned to have Heibao help Ruoming get Tang Yin, use her to bait Lin Yi out and beat him to death… It’d be difficult to carry out if Ruoming was there in person.
Yet it wasn’t something Pinliang could just mention. Just telling the guy that he’d be able to get Tang Yin for her would arouse his suspicion
“Ming Bro, this is something that has to be done asap! It’ll be really bad if Lin Yi beats you to it!” Pinliang said, a plan in mind.
“You’re right… Fucking christ, this isn’t something I can do myself!” Ruoming cursed. “Liang, you have anyone who could do the job?”
“Me? You’re not asking me to help you with the kidnapping, are you? My dad’ll kill me if he finds out!” Pinliang said, as if he were in a difficult position. “You know it too, don’t you, that whole thing with Heibao……”
Ruoming nodded understandingly- Pinliang had to have gotten a scolding for that, but Pinliang was the only one who could help him at this point. “Liang, you’ve beef with Lin Yi too, right? Help me out this once- that Lin Yi’s the one who got Heibao in jail, remember? He’s why you got a scolding, he’s your enemy as well as mine!”
“You’re right!” Pinliang nodded eagerly. “Alright then, Ming Bro, I’ll help you out!”
“That’s a bro!” Ruoming said, pleased as he patted Pinliang’s shoulder. “When can we do this?”
“Tonight, if you wanna do it as soon as possible. I’ll call the guy later!” Pinliang said. “But Ming Bro, you have a setting in mind?”
“Yeah, there’s this abandoned building in the northern area, there’s practically no one there. It’s where me and my friends hang out.” Ruoming said. “It’s at Red Flower Street, in the northern district.”
“Oh, I know that place!” Pinliang said with a nod. “Ming Bro, you just wait for good news!”
“I’ll remember this, bro! You have my thanks!!” Ruoming said as he patted Pinliang’s shoulder happily.
“For sure, for sure…” Pinliang said half-heartedly before walking back to school- the guy was thanking him for being used as a pawn.
He went to an alley behind the school and got in a public phone booth, dialing Heibao’s number up and telling him about the plans for tonight. Heibao said yes without even thinking about it- the guy was hellbent on getting back at Lin Yi, and anything went as long as it worked.
Heibao wasn’t a stranger to kidnapping- he’d done it enough times for it to be easy.
After giving out instructions to Heibao, a villainous smile formed on Pinliang’s lips. Lin Yi…… This is what you get for fucking with me. Your girl’s gonna get messed up right in front of you, and you’ll get messed up yourself while you watch……
Pinliang’s concern now, however, was how he would go about getting Lin Yi to the abandoned building.
He couldn’t just tell him to go to the place, could he? Even if the guy believed him, he’d probably think that Pinliang had started the whole thing and give him a beating first.
Pinliang walked to class with a frown on his face as he tried to figure something else out. He noticed a student from another class telling something to the dean Wang Zhifeng, probably snitching on someone. His lips twitched with disdain.
He hated people like that the most- snitching on others took no skill, and it was simply distasteful… Hm? An idea came to Pinliang’s mind.
He walked over to the snitch to thank him for the idea. “Thanks a ton, bro!”
“Zhong Pinliang, what’re you doing?” Zhifeng said with a frown.
“Nothing, Mister Wang, I just find it admirable for students like him to be doing the right thing!” Pinliang said with a nod before quickly returning to class.
Wang Zhifeng didn’t know where this was coming from- what was with this Zhong Pinliang? He left it at that, however, since the guy had an uncle in the boards of directors. Furthermore, it wasn’t like he’d done anything bad.
Lin Yi was sitting at the back of the class, listening to Xiaobo rant on about Fen. He yawned as he noticed Pinliang walking in his direction.
Huh? What’s this dude coming over here for? Lin Yi wondered if the guy was itching to get beat up or something- neither Zhang Naipao or Gao Xiaofu were near him, so Pinliang was definitely walking towards him.
As expected, Pinliang opened his mouth and spoke to Lin Yi- his attitude, however, took him by surprise.
“Lin Yi!” Pinliang greeted with a big smile on his face, trying his best not to look hostile.
“You have paralysis in your face? Need me to treat you?” Lin Yi asked, confused as he looked at that smile on Pinliang’s face. What the hell was up with him?
