Except for Gao Ran, no one knew about Huo Mian’s disappearance .
After supper, Su Yu felt bored and sent a WeChat message to Huo Mian asking her plans for Han Yueyao .
Waiting for a long while, he didn’t receive a reply .
Thinking she was busy, he waited a while longer but there was still no reply .
Concerned, he dialed her number but couldn’t get through .
Su Yu called Pudding .
Pudding was playing with Little Bean in the living room in South Hill Manor .
“Hello, Handsome Su . ”
“Pudding, is your mom on night duty? Is she at South Side?”
“No . My mom is on a business trip . ”
“Business trip? When did she go?”
“Yesterday . Oh, no, the day before yesterday…”
“Where did she go?”
“S City . ”
“When is she coming back?”
“I don’t know . She was supposed to return yesterday, but for some reason, she didn’t come back . ”
“Did she go alone?” Su Yu was worried .
“Of course not . My dad went with her . ”
“Oh . That’s good . ”
“Handsome Su, you need to talk to my mom for something urgent?”
“It’s not urgent . ”
“Well, if you can’t get through, maybe the battery on her cellphone is out of juice . You can call my dad . ”
“Okay . Go back to your playing . ”
Hanging up, Su Yu still felt uneasy, knowing Huo Mian was a careful person and wouldn’t allow her cellphone to run out of power .
He still called Qin Chu even though he knew it wasn’t a good idea .
Qin Chu answered in a tired voice .
“Qin Chu, I’m Su Yu . ”
“I know . ”
“I couldn’t get through to Huo Mian on the phone . ”
“I heard you’re on a business trip . Are you with her? I want to ask her about the future plans for her cousin Han Yueyao . ”
Still silence .
“Hello, are you listening?” Su Yu thought he had lost signals .
“I’m listening . ”
“Su Yu, Huo Mian is not with me . She got kidnapped by human traffickers . ”
Su Yu thought he had heard it wrong .
“Kidnapped? What the heck?” Su Yu stood up in agitation .
“We were walking around the square in the evening . When I went to buy her cotton candy, human traffickers made her unconscious and took her away . They stole the plate, so tracking them down is a bit tricky . After some investigation, we found the plate is used by a gang of human traffickers who have kidnapped lots of women lately . ”
“Fuck… that’s a huge thing . Why didn’t you tell me?” Su Yu felt his heart almost pop out of his chest .
“Do you think telling you would help me find her? You’re not here anyway . ”
“I’ll drive over there to help you . ”
“It’s not necessary . I’ll find her . ”
Qin Chu hung up the phone .
Su Yu couldn’t remain sitting anymore .
Standing up suddenly, he said, “An, let’s drive to S City . ”
“Huh? In the middle of the night? Why?” An was playing on his cellphone in the living room .
He looked puzzled when he heard Su Yu wanted to go to the neighboring city .
“Mian is in trouble . I must go there and search for her . ”
“Dr . Huo is in trouble again…” An was stunned .
Su Yu explained the whole thing to An briefly and turned to the door .
“President Su… Please wait a second . ”
“I feel… President Qin doesn’t want us to go… Don’t you think we are crossing the line if we go there? After all, Dr . Huo has her husband and family to help her . President Su, you’re her friend . Don’t you think it would look weird if you go?”
An thought Su Yu shouldn’t race to the neighboring city so eagerly; after all, it wasn’t his wife who went missing .
