This place, located on a hill, had no water or electricity. It was bearable to not washing but not without food.
All of Ye Yan’s communication equipment had been destroyed by him. Plus with 4 special-made handcuffs and shackles and torture, he had suffered these days, along with the energy supported only by drinking water… he was not able to flee.
Of course, if it was possible, Kingkong wouldn’t have Ye Yan get out of his sight.
But since Lin Geng had mysteriously turned into a vegetable, his task in this area was problematic. The order from his organization was to pause all activities in this area.
While making sure that everything was safe, Kingkong left quickly--- He wouldn’t leave for long but come back a second later as soon as he purchased some food from the civilian houses down the hill.
Nevertheless, he didn’t sense that every action of him was monitored by a pair of royal blue eyes.
Until Kingkong had walked far, You Ye walked to this cement room. Even though all the windows here had been covered… it couldn’t hide the sight of the servant girl.
In the room, Ye Yan was now shutting his eyes, lowering his head and body and trying to lean towards the wall, so that it could relieve the pressure supported by his legs. Taking the advantage of the time that Kingkong had left, he sought for more time to have a rest.
You Ye went to the back of the wall where Ye Yan was locked, and put her palms on the wall.
A slight sound was heard suddenly. Ye Yan opened his eyes and looked at his left wrist--- the handcuff had been unlocked at this moment.
Then, it was followed by three successive sounds! The other handcuff and both shackles were curiously loosened!
Shifting abruptly from imprisonment to liberation had Ye Yan confused--- There must be some trick here!
He had to contemplate meticulously who was that person who saved him… but he couldn’t get the answer. Perhaps Kingkong released him on purpose in order to know the identity of his contact when he escaped to get in touch with him?
Was he rescued by someone, or being played a cat and mouse trick?
Ye Yan frowned. He put his ear near to the wall to listen for sounds outside--- Yet, to his disappointment, he didn’t hear any sounds except the chirping of cicadas.
Suddenly, a sound of a chain dropping on the floor was heard from the iron door. Ye Yan hurried there after a moment of hesitation, pushing open it with a little force.
It was the thick chain that was once used to lock the iron door.
Ye Yan walked around to check the cement room but found nothing.
"If he releases me purposely, it seems too naïve… but who can come to rescue me?" Ye Yan felt confused, "Or he does so and thinks that I’ll ‘see through’ the trick, thus leading me to consider it in the opposite way?"
‘Whatever… Get out of this place first.’
He suffered serious torture these days with a mass of injuries. He didn’t think he’d beat this guy with a monster-powered fist even if he ambushed Kingkong here.
Only until Ye Yan left using another route did You Ye show up carrying her shoes.
She went into the cement room, tilting her head to look at the mark on the wall hit by Kingkong… She didn’t care about it at all.
With a good habit of cleaning after oneself, the servant girl restored the handcuffs and shackles happily, before walking out and locking the door using the chain one more time. Then, she left while humming some unknown melody.
Seeing some potherb grew along the path, the servant girl mood turned better… it seemed like there was no need to buy veggies.
"Yes, Mr. Sun, I’ll handle it properly… Yeah, Lin Geng’s company has been purchased. Yes, it’s the Zhong family in the capital city, really quite troublesome. But they should not know about those cargos. Maybe they only want the company. Because Lin Geng had contacted Zhong family for obtaining more opportunities and cooperation before his accident… Well, nobody else in Heaven’s Shadow knows it except me..."
Kingkong was walking through the road back to the cement room. Seeing the chain hanging there from far, he was not in a hurry to go in.
"I’m still investigating Lin Geng and Ms. Shu’s matter… Yes, Tu Jiaya and her sister are missing. But don’t worry, Tu Jiaya was just a tool for Lin Geng to accumulate wealth. Lin Geng already knew very little, let alone that woman. She has been long controlled by Lin Geng’s ‘inferior-quality product’, so it’s impossible for her to leave it. I suspect that she’s dead due to withdrawal symptoms but I don’t know where she fell and her dead body has not yet been discovered… I see, I’ll keep an eye on Ye Yan."
Turning his phone off, Kingkong unlocked the chain expressionlessly and pushed open the iron door.
This place was so poor. Only that human sandbag could be used to endure the boredom. Kingkong’s face revealed a sneer, thinking about how long this Mister criminal police would keep silent.
But in the very next second, the sneer froze.
That person disappeared!
Tools of imprisonment were in good condition. The chain and lock hadn’t been broken and no destructive signs were seen on the only window, but the person was missing!
The bag of food held by Kingkong dropped on the floor all at once. He was bewildered that how could one person vanish into thin air under such circumstances!
The angry Kingkong hit the iron door with full strength, the powerful fist made a huge dent on the door!
He felt that he was fooled severely.
It was easy to see Yang Ping from the outside of the window.
The aunt looked neater wearing the suit of cleaner. She acted slowly but pretty carefully. The big bamboo basket had been stuffed full of fallen leaves.
This was only an hours’ work.
In the room, Luo Qiu drew back the curtain a little because he knew that the aunt would look towards this direction from time to time.
Of course, she probably could not see him because of her bad eyesight… but Luo Qiu thought that it was not good for her as long as the one she saw was not who she was expected to meet.
It was Fang Jiping’s room.
Nobody else was there except the housemaid--- actually the housemaid was taking the afternoon nap.
As to the reason Luo Qiu was here…
It was obviously because he was trespassing.
Theoretically, Luo Qiu could go anywhere in this city, including the coffer of a bank.
Luo Qiu looked at Fang Jiping’s room. He found a box in the wardrobe where there was an old rattle-drum. Luo Qiu held it and rotated it for some seconds.
He remembered that the aunt had a totally same one, with the same sound when rotating.
But no matter how similar were the two drums, they could not be completely the same.
There was no female owner in this apartment. On the household register, it was written that Fang Ruchang’s marital status was widowed.
After having a look around Fang Jiping’s room, Luo Qiu then moved to Fang Ruchang’s bedroom where he found something interesting in a small safety box by the bedside table there.
A diagnosis and treatment report about Fang Ruchang’s infertility within the current year.
