Chapter 419 - Give You A Mission
"Fine, I'll make a phone call, you wait here!" Tiandi started putting on airs again as he took his phone out. He dialed a number. "Hello? Wang Bro? I'm Zou Tiandi! I've gotten into a car accident on Golden South Road, we were just about to settle it personally when a cop came over… Yes, can you speak to her? Alright, I'll hand her the phone!"
With that, Tiandi handed to phone to Lingshan, his voice emotionless. "Take the phone?"
Lingshan was a little amused as she looked at Tiandi. She took the phone. "Hello? I'm Song Lingshan, who are you?"
"C-Captain Song??" The person was just about to talk to her when the big name of Song Lingshan hit him, sending him jumping with a fright. Song Lingshan of the criminal police, a name everyone in the police world knew of! Nobody wanted to be pissing her off!
He was just a traffic police officer, he couldn't just give the captain of the criminal police a command, could he? This Zou Tiandi was being targeted by Lingshan, too- it could even be a big case he was involved in, perhaps something like illegal trafficking! He had to cut his connection with this Tiandi as soon as possible.
With that, Wang Bro of the traffic police spoke up. "It's nothing, Captain Song… I'll stop interrupting your case…"
Lingshan handed the phone back to Tiandi, who didn't hear what Wang Bro was saying on his side. All he'd heard was Lingshan's announcement of her name, so he thought everything had been settled. He was about to thank Wang Bro when he got hung up on.
Tiandi didn't think much of it- he assumed that he was busy, and had left after taking care of the problem. "Wang Bro talked to you, right? You can leave now, young comrade- don't butt into other people's business next time!"
"Dad…" Ruoguang was panicking as he pulled at Tiandi. Tiandi may not know who Lingshan was, but it was only natural that Ruoguang did! He'd be a really shitty gangster leader in the Northern district if he didn't even know the captain of the criminal police- he was absolutely paling at his father's outrageous lecture he was throwing at LIngshan.
"What are you doing?" Tiandi glared at his son, dissatisfied. "What is it, just get it out."
"Dad, she's Captain Song, captain of the criminal police…" Ruogang spoke carefully.
"Wha?!" Tiandi froze that instant. "She… She's the criminal police captain?"
"You going or not? You don't need me to help you, right?" Lingshan took out her handcuffs and glared at Tiandi.
"I'll… I'll go…" Tiandi wasn't looking very well- he didn't think that he'd actually piss off the captain of the criminal police… If he still insisted on staying she'd probably start pulling a gun out!
"I'm not involved, right… I was just passing by…" Ruoguang didn't want to visit the police station.
"You need to come along! You're driving a plateless, modified motorcycle illegally, and I'm suspecting you of coordinated criminal activity." Lingshan didn't give Ruoguang a chance to explain. "I know who you are- you can't get out of this one. You could try to run, though…"
"I won't run, haha… I'll help with the investigation…" Ruoguang smiled bitterly, his face tragic.
"Thanks, Miss Braindead." Lin Yi was actually quite grateful towards Lingshan getting him out of this trouble. Ruoguang showing up told him who exactly this Zou Tiandi was, and as easy as it'd be to take care of them, Lingshan took care of things faster, so Lin Yi found himself taking a liking to her.
"No!! You're coming as well!" Lingshan exploded. If the guy wanted to call her Miss Braindead couldn't he just settle with doing that in private? Calling her that in front of so many people, how could she just walk away from that? The frustration got to her and she decided to share some of that with Lin Yi.
"Me too..?" Lin Yi pointed at his nose, speechless. He was about to say something when Tang Yin spoke up.
"Let's go for a bit. We need to cooperate with the investigation, it's our civilian duty too…" Tang Yin was a good girl, and wouldn't turn down going to the police station for something like this. "And it's not our fault too, it's theirs, so it'll be fine if we clear things up with the police…"
"Ah… Alright." Lin Yi nodded, smiling bitterly. Tang Yin sure was a good girl. He'd actually planning on just ignoring Lingshan and driving off- he didn't think she'd come capture him to bring back to the station.
"Fuu…" Lingshan let out a breath of relief- she'd said that because she was letting it get to her head, and she hadn't considered the consequences at all. She'd regretted it right after the words left her mouth- since when had Lin Yi bothered paying her respect? Her giving him an order like that would only bring humiliation to herself! If Lin Yi just turned and left then she'd be in an even worse position in front of the Tiandi and Ruoguang, much worse than being publicly called Miss Braindead.
Now that Tang Yin had spoken up and offered to go to the police station, Lingshan couldn't help but find gratitude for her within her relief, but also troubled at the importance Lin Yi placed in Tang Yin's words, along with how he pampered her. She wasn't worse than Tang Yin, was he? She had the looks, the same as Tang Yin did, and a body many times hotter and curvier than Tang Yin's! What was wrong with this Lin Yi, was he blind? Why was he so rough with her?
Lingshan was getting more annoyed by the second. How come Lin Yi treated Tang Yin so gently and always gave her so much shit? Was she just that irritating to him? She even needed to call herself Miss Braindead just for him to give her a favor!
"You people follow me in your own cars!" Lingshan got in her police car and flashed her sirens, going straight to the police station with everyone behind her.
Tiandi wasn't sure what Lin Yi's relationship with Lingshan was, but Lin Yi calling her Miss Braindead only brought him joy. He'd soon be entertained quite well by what would happen- Lin Yi would probably get put in his place later.
But Tiandi wasn't about to just let Lin Yi off the hook that easily- he called his younger son Zou Ruoming's phone on the way to the station.
"Hi, Ruoming? Still at school?" Tiandi always wanted Ruoming to be properly studying at school, keeping him from participating in things like fighting, but this was a different case. He was simply too pissed off! His eldest son had no balls, and couldn't even teach someone a lesson!
But the younger son was different- he was someone with bravery, a savage character. He wanted him to be studying, but that didn't mean he wasn't aware of the type of person Ruoming was.
"Dad, I'm still at school, studying…" Ruoming had just finished his meeting with Xiaoxiao when his father's call scared him. He wasn't checking if he was studying, was he? He tried to cover up with an explanation.
"Alright, cut the crap!" Tiandi scolded. "You think I don't know what you're like? Here's a mission, go to your Uncle Yan's villa in the Northern District, and tell him to block someone at the police station doors. I'll send you the person's details later!"
"Ah? Me??" Ruoming blinked, not expecting a mission coming from his father. Wasn't his brother the one who were usually given these missions? His father was giving him such a big mission, too, telling him to go to Uncle Yan for his first time!
He didn't even give his brother this sort of treatment! Uncle Yan was a golden class master! Just thinking about bringing a golden class master out gave him shivers!
Chapter 420 - Ambush and Interception
"Yes, you're going!" Tiandi was furious- he wouldn't have asked Ruoming to carry out that task if he weren't at his boiling point. He was especially pissed off after learning that Lin Yi was the very guy who threw him out the hospital room that day- he needed to show him just what he was made of today.
"Alright, I'll go right away…" Ruoming quickly nodded, thinking that it'd be nice if he could bring Uncle Yan to take care of Lin Yi. Lin Yi would be reduced from a tyrant to a plaything once Uncle Yan dealt with him!
Naturally, Ruoming wasn't aware that the disabled and imprisoned Heibao Bro was a golden class master as well- he'd have a different mentality if he'd known.
Ruoming's excited tone prompted a sigh from Tiandi as he hung the phone up. His younger son was merciless, so had he carried out an incorrect strategy? Should he have had his elder son study and his younger one on the gangster streets? That'd be a good route indeed, but now that he'd made the mistake he needed to try and make the most out of it…
Uncle Yan didn't usually use his cellphone, nor did he use a telephone inside the house. Yan Ran was a master isolated from the world- Tiandi wouldn't have needed Ruoming to go to him personally if that weren't the case.
But Tiandi was fine with that. Masters, after all, had to be different to normal people in certain areas. It was only natural for a golden class master like Uncle Yan to be different from everybody else.
And Uncle Yan's considerations were well thought out, too- he was a fugitive, so being a hermit was a good choice, lest someone interested in him managed to locate him.
Ruoming quickly ran out of school and stopped a taxi before heading to the villa in the Northern District.
Uncle Yan knew who Ruoming was- he didn't ask many questions after hearing that it was an instruction from Zou Tiandi. He put on a low cap and rushed out with Ruoming.
Uncle Yan was a golden class master walking the lines of both society and sects. He'd always performed robbery for his sect, receiving compensation for it when he got caught one day, turning him into a fugitive. Fortunately for him, Tiandi saved him that day- he promised to do Tiandi three favors, staying in Songshan as a result.
He'd done two favors for Tiandi already, and today was the final one. He'd be able to leave afterwards and continue his life of robbery.
A beep sounded from Ruoming's phone- it was a text from Tiandi, detailing him a licence plate and the model of a van.
Ruoming passed the information onto Uncle Yan, and the two stood by on a road cars needed to take in order to reach the police station.
After reaching the police station, Lingshan didn't do anything to trouble Lin Yi. Perhaps she knew that Lin Yi could've just left, that he'd come here in the first place because of Tang Yin.
So she had him write down an evidence-by-deposition, and let Lin Yi and Tang Yin leave.
"Lingshan Sis is actually pretty nice, why do you always call her a… that…" Tang Yin didn't quite understand why Lin Yi kept calling Lingshan Miss Braindead- wasn't he being too brave? Calling Lingshan Miss Braindead… The weird part was how Lingshan didn't retort against that, despite being angry about it.
"Ah. She's too much trouble and asks me for help all the time." LinYi shrugged, not wanting to spend too much time on the topic. The jade jumped twice, and Lin Y's expression changed as he slowed the car down. "We're in danger!!"
"Danger?" Tang Yin froze- she was about to ask questions when a figure appeared in front of them, standing some distance away from Lin Yi's car.
Golden Class early phase. Lin Yi's heart reacted and told him what level the opponent was at, but he didn't know what this golden class master was doing here.
From what he could see, the man had come for him, but who was the one who'd sent him? Li Cihua? Evidently impossible- he'd lost two early phase golden class masters to Lin Yi, so why would he send another one to his death? Lin Yi didn't think he'd be that stupid.
Zhong Fabai? Unlikely as well, after he'd sent Heibao into prison.
Jin Gubang? That was the only possibility Lin Yi found plausible, but the next moment Lin Yi found, much to his surprise, that his guess was off.
For the person jumping out after this golden class master wasn't Jin Gubang- it was Zou Ruoming!
Ruoming froze upon seeing Tang Yin and Lin Yi in the car- he exploded in joy the next instant.
He knew what Lin Yi's van looked like, but he didn't remember the licence plate, but Uncle Yan's sharp eyes caught Lin Yi's approaching van- he jumped out right away, and now Ruoming understood that the person his father had asked him to stop was none other than Lin Yi!
Ruoming's world burst as his body shivered with excitement and emotion- in that instant all his worries and troubles of how he should handle Lin Yi evaporated, his impossible dream of having Uncle Yan help him fulfilled!!
"Hahaha, Lin Yi? It's you??" Ruoming started laughing. "You didn't think it'd be like this, yeah? You didn't think this would happen to you one day, did you, Lin Yi!!! I've been taking shit from you all day, and now I'll have you killed! Fucking shit, take my Tang Yin, will you? Who the hell do you think you are? Tang Yin's staying today, but you're not!!"
Lin Yi stared at Ruoming, stunned. How naive could the guy get? Did he think he was invincible bringing a golden class early phase master? Lin Yi could battle late phase ones, let alone an early phase master!
After completing the first stage of his Art of Dragon Mastery, Lin Yi's strength now rivaled that of a golden class late phase- he could even go as far as battle it out with an early phase mystic class!
"You've had too many retard pills, haven't you?" Lin Yi looked at Ruoming as if he were retarded. "Retards aren't this retarded, are they? You're no normal retard, you're ridiculous! You're ten thousand times more retarded than Miss Braindead."
(Direct translation of that nickname is Retard Lass. Sounds like a superhero.)
"Haha…" Tang Yin, naturally, knew which Miss Braindead Lin Yi was referring to. Him bringing that up at a moment like this made her start laughing, a sight godly and too beautiful for Ruoming's eyes. It intensified his desire to claim her as his own- something like this was completely wasted on Lin Yi!!
"Miss Braindead?" Ruoming didn't know who this Miss Braindead was, but what Lin Yi was saying couldn't be good. He gritted his teeth in response. "It's useless, Lin Yi, no matter what you say now. Since you still don't understand your situation don't blame me for what I'm about to do! Uncle Yan, finish him! Leave the girl for me!"
Ruoming was making an unauthorized change to the command that'd been given- Tiandi only wanted Uncle Yan to teach Lin Yi a lesson, but he now had to finish him all of a sudden.
A smack sounded as Lin Yi slapped Ruoming across the face. "I told you, didn't I? Stop thinking about Tang Yin! Do you have amnesia or are you deaf?"
Ruoming didn't expect this level of cockiness from Lin Yi- slapping him right in front of Uncle Yan? He started whining from the pain. "Uncle Yan, hurry! Finish him!!"
