Chapter 350: The Investigation
Zhou Weiqi wanted to talk about the thing that Lu Xingzhi asked him to investigate.
“I received a call at noon, it’s about Sun Cuimei!” Zhou Weiqi grinned sheepishly.
Jiang Yao knew that Sun Cuimei was Mrs. Ge’s full name. She quickly asked, “What is it?”
She was getting even more curious as Zhou Weiqi did not answer her question, instead he gave a sheepish grin so she urged again, “Hey, don’t leave me hanging, just spill the beans already!”
Mrs. Ge was considered a newcomer in the base, so only Zhou Weiqi and Chen Xuyao who always frequented the base knew about her existence, but Chen Xuyao did not know Mrs. Ge’s real name, so he asked curiously for more details.
“Sun Cuimei is Sergeant Ge’s wife. A few days ago, they had a big fight and she left the base. Everyone thought that she ran back to her hometown but someone saw her coming out of a motel with another man in Jin City. They also saw them kissing passionately when they got into their car. The next thing we know, she came back to the base to ask for a divorce,” Jiang Yao explained in a rapid tone before shifting her gaze back at Zhou Weiqi again.
There was a hint of pride on Zhou Weiqi’s face as he glanced at the curious looks on everyone’s faces. He cleared his throat and slowly started, “The man who came in and out of the motel with Sun Cuimei is not a rich guy, but a pimp!”
The noun was like a loud slap that was hurled across Jiang Yao’s head. With her eyes opened wide, she blinked and stared in a daze.
The truth was too shocking for her!
“The man’s nickname is Lao Tie, he borrowed the car from his rich friend in order to deceive foolish and naive women. He is easily bored by his flings, then he will introduce the women to other men and make a small profit from pimping these women out.” Zhou Weiqi clicked his tongue in amusement. “I bet Mrs. Ge will be pimped in no time. Sooner or later, she will be like the girls in the Red Light District, whoever pays her gets to sleep with her.”
“What if Mrs. Ge doesn’t want to? Lao Tie can’t force her to do so, right?” Jiang Yao frowned.
“Jiang Yao, you’re still very green to the real world.” Zhou Weiqi shook his head. “Sergeant Ge and Mrs. Ge are divorced now, she has no place to go to except being with her family. However, her family won’t take her in since she divorced her husband because of adultery. Furthermore, Lao Tie is a sweet talker, he is very good at coaxing women and bringing these foolish women to experience and enjoy an extravagant lifestyle. There’s a saying that goes, ‘It is easy for you to adapt to it if your living condition ascends from economical to luxurious; conversely, that becomes hard.’ After experiencing such a lavish lifestyle, do you think she will go back to her poor family and suffer a life of torment? She can’t go home, she can’t go to the Ge family, what else can she do besides earning money from selling her body?”
Zhou Weiqi chuckled knowingly after saying that. “I don’t think you and Xingzhi should stir your fingers in this matter. Mrs. Ge will get a dose of her own medicine sooner or later. There’s nothing we can do about Lao Tie either, it’s a doing of two consenting adults. From what I heard, he has never forced anyone to do anything against their will before. Those women are willing or even happy to be pimped.”
Jiang Yao finally realized that the sinister part of the world was still an unfamiliar portion that she was rather clueless about.
She imagined a lot of possibilities and situations. She thought that Mrs. Ge might have been deceived by a casanova who was somehow rich, but what Zhou Weiqi said tonight never ever crossed her mind.
As Zhou Weiqi stated, she and Lu Xingzhi should keep themselves away from this matter from now on. Mrs. Ge made her own decision, and she had to bear the consequences, whatever might come.
