Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Bureau Chief Li rolled his eyes in disdain towards Wang Hanjie, who had become cocky and disrespectful just because he had the support of Jiang Wenzhe. Bureau Chief Li thought to himself,
Meanwhile, Jiang Yuqian was dumbfounded by the sight before her. Even her father had to show respect to Bureau Chief Li. Yet, Wen Xinya actually managed to make him swallow his pride and apologize to her in front of everyone.
Xia Ruxue could not believe her eyes, either.
Xia Ruya stared at Wen Xinya, who was standing at a spot not too far away from her. She thought,
The sudden discovery caused her to be overwhelmed with fear and and terror.
She clenched her fists tightly, causing her sharp nails to dig into the flesh on her palm. However, the physical pain was nowhere comparable to the excruciating emotional pain that she was plagued with.
Su Jinshan was flabbergasted beyond words. She had truly belittled Wen Xinya by thinking that she was weak and powerless because she had led a wandering life for fifteen years, and had fallen out with her. In hindsight, she realized that she was again at the losing end, just like during her previous conflict with Wen Xinya. She only figured out now that Wen Xinya must be scheming and shrewd. Otherwise, she definitely wouldn’t have been able to get into Old Mr. Wen’s good books.
Having encountered all sorts of situations, she quickly snapped out of her trance and regained her composure. She then walked towards Bureau Chief Li gracefully and asked worriedly, “Bureau Chief Li, are there any leads to my daughter’s case?”
Bureau Chief Li stared at Su Jinshan coldly and said proudly, “We’ve already found some leads, all thanks to Mr. Gu’s help. I reckon there’ll be results soon!”
Su Jinshan stared at Gu Yuehan in utter surprise, for she did not expect that he would help her look for Jiang Ruoyin. She quickly smiled and thanked him. “Mr. Gu, thank you so much for being willing to help me. I’d like to express my gratitude on behalf of the Jiang family.”
She obviously had to suck up to someone whom Bureau Chief Li regarded highly of, and hence, tried to sound as sincere as she could.
Gu Yuehan stared at her calmly and said, “I didn’t help you for nothing. There’s a price to pay.”
It would be a good thing for the Jiang family to be associated with such an influential figure of status. Su Jinshan hurriedly said, “Regardless of what the price may be, we’ll pay it so long as it’s within my means.”
Gu Yuehan looked at Wen Xinya and said, “If I find Jiang Ruoyin and prove Miss Wen’s innocence, you’ll have to apologize to Miss Wen in front of everyone.”
Su Jinshan’s face stiffened, at a complete loss for words.
Gu Yuehan looked at Su Jinshan and asked, “Madam, is that beyond your means? Didn’t you say that you’d definitely try your best to pay the price? Am I asking for too much?”
Su Jinshan instantly turned beet red and began stammering.
Bureau Chief Li said to Su Jinshan, “Madam Jiang, I suggest you concede to Mr. Gu’s request. To be honest with you, the police haven’t found out anything about your daughter’s whereabouts, but Mr. Gu already has some leads.”
Su Jinshan turned as pale as a ghost. She finally understood that Gu Yuehan had come for Wen Xinya.
Bureau Chief Li continued, “I heard that your daughter enjoys boasting and showing off her riches. That’s how she caught the attention of those money-hungry thugs who decided to abduct her. Those people are no saints, and they’re definitely ruthless.”
Su Jinshan’s eyes widened in terror and she asked, “Didn’t the police say that the abductors have abducted my daughter because of a personal feud? My daughter has been missing for so long. Why haven’t we received any calls from them yet? They should be calling to ask for a ransom.”
Bureau Chief Li said, “Those thugs are the best at the waiting game. The longer they wait to make the extortion, the easier it is for them to get the ransom.”
Gu Yuehan walked past Su Jinshan and stopped in front of Wen Xinya. “Let’s go, Ninth Young Master is waiting for you outside.”
Wen Xinya asked in shock, “He’s here, too?”
Gu Yuehan nodded and explained, “Yes, he rushed here the moment we received the news. However, it wasn’t convenient for him to enter, so he’s been waiting outside while I came in to handle some matters.”
Wen Xinya was filled with a mix of emotions. Si Yiyan had never meddled with her work affairs and would make sure to keep a distance even when he was helping her out. However, he had intervened in her personal matter this time. Yet, she did not find it repulsive at all. Instead, she was rather delighted by his sweet gesture.
After all, there was nothing she could do about Su Jinshan’s repeated threats, despite being a member of the Wen Family. However, he had stood up for her by stepping in and making Su Jinshan apologize to her.
Bureau Chief Li’s words had diminished all of Su Jinshan’s hopes. Noticing that Gu Yuehan was about to leave, she looked at him and said, “Mr. Gu, I promise I’ll apologize. Please help me save my daughter.”
Instead of looking at her, Gu Yuehan said to Wen Xinya, “Seems like we’ll have to stay here for a while longer.”
Wen Xinya shrugged and said, “Doesn’t matter.”
Gu Yuehan whipped out his mobile phone to make a call and hung up after saying a few words. He then said to Su Jinshan, “Your daughter will be sent to the police station in half an hour’s time. I hope you’ll keep your promise. If you go back on your word, then you’d better prepare to get angry.”
Su Jinshan turned pale, finally realizing that there was more to this mysterious Mr. Gu than met the eye.
