Chapter 37 - Who's Killing Who?
“Do you only pick on girls?!” Lin Yi’s lips twitched as he looked at Baldy. “I say, you guys aren’t after the bank at all, are you? It was just to cover you kidnapping Chu Mengyao!”
“Hmph, so what if you found out? You’re tied up in my car, you can’t do shit!” Baldy didn’t see the need to hide anything at this point- to him, Lin Yi was just a ballsy guy under his mercy, he could very well do whatever he wanted to him! It didn’t matter in the least that his objective was exposed.
“You guys won’t get far. The cops are gonna tail you, and you’ll all get screwed.” Lin Yi explained to Baldy, a slight pity in his tone.
“Yeah right, I have backup plans prepared already!” Baldy retorted gleefully. “The cops are probably spinning around their heels right about now, tracking down the wrong cars, heh.”
“Is that so?” Lin Yi was a little impressed. The guy had some brains, apparently- he wasn’t a complete idiot. His biggest mistake, however, was his decision to pull Lin Yi along with them. Their operation now had no chance of success at all.
Song Lingshan, on the other hand, busied herself with maintaining contact with the other squads.
“Song Team, this is Liu Wangli of Team C1! The SUV has been spotted, licence plate A74110! Awaiting orders!”
“Trail them, and make sure not to let them see you!”
Song Lingshan let out a breath of relief. Hmph, think you’re so smart. Didn’t expect us to have officers stationed at all the junctions now did you? Let’s see how you get away now. Lingshan was quite pleased with herself when a new report came in.
“Song Team, this is Zhang Xiaohang of Team C2! The SUV has been spotted, licence plate A74110! Awaiting orders!”
“What?” Song Lingshan froze. “Where did you see the SUV?”
“Center Ring Road! Awaiting orders!” Zhang Xiaohang replied.
“Center Ring..? That’s not right, Team One’s Liu Wangli reported it to be on the People’s Road!!” Lingshan was starting to get confused- what were these robbers doing, driving around in circles? Despite that, she issued the same order she did Team One. “Follow them, and make sure not to get spotted!”
“Team S, this is Sun Jiaxia of Team C3! The SUV has been spotted, licence plate A74110! Awaiting orders!”
“Again??” It was clear to Lingshan by that point- she’d probably been had. Chances were, the enemy had multiple A74110 licence plates and SUVs prepared. Song Lingshan was not pleased.
How humiliating was it for her to have fallen for a trick like this? If only Captain Yang were here- he’d have seen through the trap right from the start, while she walked straight into it!
At that moment, Team C4 called in for a report as well, only to be interrupted by Lingshan before he even got a word in. “Did you guys spot the A74110 SUV too?”
“Indeed! We’ve spotted the SUV, what are your orders, Team S?”
“Tail it.” Song Lingshan fell into despair- the other SUVs had served their purpose, and the real one was most likely far, far away.
“Why are you kidnapping her?” Lin Yi narrowed his eyes, curious. Money didn’t seem to be the issue here, since these guys probably got themselves at least a million kuai from the heist just now. Were they unsatisfied, hoping for a larger fortune from Chu Pengzhan? It’d put them back in a risky position once more, should that be the plan.
“Why? Good question!” Baldy smiled as he pointed at the bags of cash near him. “It’s simple… For money!!”
“Money?” Lin Yi frowned. “Kidnapping Mengyao, and using her to ransom the chairman for money?”
“That’s not your problem, is it?” Baldy didn’t like how Lin Yi was spitting questions at him.
“It’s the same, isn’t it? Can’t I at least die knowing what’s going on?” Lin Yi’s curiosity was backed by an innocent face- a face no one could refuse.
Baldy looked at Lin Yi. Perhaps he could let the kid in on what they were up to, he’s a dead man anyway. “We’ve been paid to kidnap this Missy here!”
“What are you going to do with her?” .
“Dunno, waiting for the phone call.”
“Who was the guy that paid you?”
“Dunno, Cihua Bro introduced him to us.”
“Who’s Cihua Bro?”
“Fuck! Shut the fuck up! Jesus, I’ll kill you if you ask again!!” Baldy had had enough of Lin Yi’s barrage.
“Oh, okay. Then I’ll kill you if you move again.” Lin Yi said as he pressed a gun to Baldy’s temple.
“Wh-?! Y-you…….” Baldy’s eyes were wide open- what the fucking hell was this? Wasn’t the kid tied? And where the fuck did that gun come from?
The other robbers in the SUV were stunned as well- why was the kid pointing a gun at their boss?
“H-how did you… free yourself?” Baldy didn’t understand. Yes, he didn’t understand! Weren’t both of Lin Yi’s hands tied up?
“Oh, you see, I was a bit of a dumb kid, and I’d always tangle myself in rope when trying rope knots. I started to learn how to get myself out of those ropes after a long time of tying myself up accidentally.” Lin Yi explained.
“......” Baldy’s jaw dropped. What the fuck? Trying out rope knots? “Then… Why do you have a gun..?”
“It’s from that Ma Liu guy.” Lin Yi pointed at Ma Liu, who was the closest to him.
Ma Liu patted his pocket- his gun really was gone, and it was in Lin Yi’s hands.
Baldy went completely silent at that point- what the fuck was even happening? This kid was ridiculous! He then proceeded to curse Ma Liu and his ancestors.
“Okay, okay, nobody move. I wouldn’t wanna ruin your boss’ shiny head.” Lin Yi said casually as Baldy sweated.
