Chapter 951: Death Soldiers
The journey was not that smooth-sailing and within just twenty minutes, they were met with two attacks. However, they managed to stay safe because of the twenty-car convoy. Due to the fact that the models and colors were similar, the enemies could not tell exactly where she was. As a result, she managed to make it through safely.
Xu Xianghu was the one who surprised her the most.
The man whom she saw as a dimwit, could handle a gun with finesse and he exuded a commanding aura when killing the assaulter. He appeared so daunting and menacing that it was truly terrifying.
She could not believe her eyes at all. She would have never expected him to be so brave and powerful, yet so silly!
She felt that it was right to judge a book based on its cover under certain circumstances.
She again thought about Si Yiyan, who shielded her from the bullets in a suave and menacing manner. He was so cool, swift and godly.
“Can you guess who our assaulter was?” Wen Xinya asked softly. Even if Duke Moville had decided to send some people to attack them, he wouldn’t have left any clues behind, especially since he wanted to let Avrora marry Si Yiyan.
Although Duke Moville was a likely suspect because they had suffered the attacks shortly after leaving the residence, Duke Moville could simply say that he wouldn’t be so silly as to do something like that.
Of course, that explanation would only be reasonable in the event that they did not find any evidence.
Xu Xianghu appeared much more austere now as they talked about serious matters. “From the way I see it, they must have hired gunmen.”
In Russia, there were several gunmen organizations, all of whom were well-equipped with combat skills and quick reflexes. They were mysterious and it would be difficult to deal with them.
Ideas began to form in Wen Xinya’s mind. The matter would definitely blow over once they failed to produce any evidence. Clearly, Duke Moville was much more powerful than she had imagined, for he had managed to contact the gunmen and get them to attack her and Si Yiyan shortly after their departure.
Xu Xianghu continued, “These gunmen have some features of soldiers, and I’m guessing that they must have undergone special military training before. They’re very likely to belong to a certain organization.”
Those people were well-coordinated and in sync, perhaps because they had already built a rapport and chemistry with each other after working together for a long time. However, there were frequent transfers and changes in manpower because of the large number of casualties. Besides, these gunmen preferred to take part in missions alone, and even if they had teams, they would rarely be this large.
Wen Xinya frowned slightly and asked, “Do these gunmen also work with people of higher authority?”
In her memory, gunmen often shied away from cooperating with major authorities in order to avoid getting their secrets exposed and getting themselves too deeply embroiled.
Xu Xianghu explained, “No, the only reason they’re so secretive is because they don’t wish to build a cooperative relationship with anyone. However… some organizations do agree to train individuals, and those people who assaulted us today could very likely be the trainees of these organizations.”
Wen Xinya immediately understood what he meant. Clearly, those gunmen were assassins who worked for the aristocrats.
Along the way, Xu Xianghu explained some matters about the situation in Russia to Wen Xinya.
Xu Xianghu told her everything he knew.
Wen Xinya listened attentively while analyzing the information carefully. Xu Xianghu was often too casual with his words and she knew she had to take the things he said with a pinch of salt.
“Sis-in-law, we’ve arrived!”
She was incredibly delighted to hear her words.
Wen Xinya asked softly, “Can you contact Ninth Young Master and find out his situation?”
Si Yiyan should be more or less done after the twenty-minute journey.
Xu Xianghu giggled and said, “The situation has been kept under control and Ninth Young Master will be back in a while. Sis-in-law, don’t be so worried. You’ve already asked about Ninth Young Master five times throughout this journey…”
Wen Xinya heaved a sigh of relief. Although Xu Xianghu was rather silly, he would never be careless when it came to serious matters.
Si Yiyan’s mansion was way too large and they would only arrive at the living hall after a ten-minute drive upon entering the gates of the mansion.
The car slowly came to a halt.
Xu Xianghu took the lead and alighted the car to open the door for her. Although he looked rather boorish while performing the gentlemanly gesture, he did not seem too unnatural. “Hehe, it’s rare of me to behave in such a gentlemanly manner.” He then bent forward and said, “Sis-in-law, please alight!”
Wen Xinya burst into laughter and alighted from the car before heading to the living room together with Xu Xianghu.
As soon as she entered the living room, she began to give out instructions. “Xianghu, have you guys arranged for someone to go receive Ninth Young Master? He’s injured and he might be immobile!”
Xu Xianghu immediately kicked up a fuss. “What? Ninth Young Master is injured?”
However, Wen Xinya ignored him and instead got the servants to bring the butler to her.
Standing by the side awkwardly, Xu Xianghu figured out that Si Yiyan had probably gotten injured while protecting her. He frantically said, “Yueze has already sent someone to go receive him. Don’t worry, nothing will happen.”
Wen Xinya felt much more relieved after hearing his words. She instructed the butler to get the first aid kit and medical equipment ready so that Si Yiyan and his injured subordinates could receive treatment as soon as they returned.
Xu Xianghu asked concernedly, “Sis-in-law, is Ninth Young Master really injured? Which part of him is injured? Are the wounds severe?”
Wen Xinya answered, “He hurt his arm, but his life is not in danger, so you don’t have to worry.”
However, Wen Xinya was incredibly upset deep down and the thought of him getting injured made her feel rather heartbroken.
Xu Xianghu heaved a sigh of relief. Fortunately, it was just his arm and he would be alright after resting for a week.
Wen Xinya was busy instructing the helpers in the kitchen to prepare some delicious food that could be easily digested. After an intense battle, anyone would need to replenish their energy, let alone those who had been injured.
Xu Xianghu rattled on. “Goddamn it. I wonder who those people are. They’re obviously asking for death. How dare they attack the Ninth Young Master. I’ll definitely teach them a lesson if I find out who they are.”
Wen Xinya, Si Yiyan, Gu Yuehan, and Liu Yanhua were the only ones who knew about the document. Xu Xianghu would never be able to guess that those gunmen were hired by Duke Moville.
Si Yiyan had an extraordinary status in Russia, and even those powerful aristocrats dared not attack him so brazenly, let alone the Moville Family that was losing their power.
Only those whose brains were fried would do so.
