Chapter 69 – [Untitled]
An extra person was in the room, and White Gloves was the first to notice. It smelled the scent of the stranger making all the fur on its body explode. He kept meowing at the back of a cabinet where all the clutter was piled up, but he didn’t dare approach.
Its intuition told him that this person was very dangerous which made White Gloves very scared. But still, it didn’t flinch because of the fear since the two humans who raised him were still here. White Gloves made sounds to warn its owners, and all its fur had already stood up.
But it didn’t seem to be useful.
Seeing that something was wrong with White Gloves, Shen Muan’s attention was caught.
He walked over and picked up White Gloves, he stroked its back and tried to soothed its emotions. While soothing White Gloves, Shen Muan also secretly observed his surroundings. It was impossible for White Gloves to make such sounds for no reason, so the only possibility was that something had entered the house.
Who could it be?
What was their purpose?
And how did they get in?
One question after another appeared in Shen Muan’s mind, but his face did not show any hint of this at all. He returned to the living room with White Gloves and continued to comfort it, acting like there was nothing out of the ordinary.
The superficial calm was maintained in the room, but except for Ruirui, the other people in the room knew that this calm was only temporary.
Shen Muan didn’t want to have a physical conflict with the opponent. He was afraid that if they physically fought, they could accidentally injure Ruirui. Shen Muan wanted to call the police, but the opponent was much faster than him. Before he was even able to touch the phone, Shen Muan felt a figure attack Ruirui.
As a reflex action, Shen Muan quickly stood in front of Ruirui making a cold and sharp needle pierce his body. Just as Shen Muan tried to dodge again, the opponent pinched his carotid sinus with one hand. After a few seconds, he felt difficulty breathing and fainted.
From the beginning, the opponent’s goal was Shen Muan, and their reason for attacking Ruirui was to distract Shen Muan.
Ruirui held Shen Muan in horror, what happened that night reappeared in his mind again. Why… Why? Ruirui picked up a cup on the table and slammed it hard at the man who hurt Shen Muan.
But the opponent avoided it very easily, the cup smashed into a vase on the table shattering it to the ground.
Ruirui’s actions did surprise the man a little. He didn’t expect a small child to be so courageous, but it was a pity… He was still too weak, and doing this only made the enemy think that he was of no use.
For such a child, trying to stun him couldn’t be easier. The man casually moved his hands making Ruirui faint directly.
The employer’s requirement was to take this adult and child unharmed, so he deliberately restrained himself from the start. He feared he would hurt these people, lest making the employer unhappy.
Although it was him who started the operation, it was not an easy task to transport these two people out. The small one was okay, he could easily be packed in a suitcase or a large bag, but the adult was not easy to handle.
Fortunately, he wasn’t responsible for this part of the plan.
White Gloves rushed over like crazy and bit the man’s hand, but he was easily thrown away, hitting the wall heavily. White Gloves let out a scream, he wouldn’t be able to get up for a while.
“Tsk, little beast.” The man’s face suddenly turned black, he was tired of such little things. If time allowed it, he would’ve killed the cat.
The man sent a message to an unknown number, and then immediately evacuated from Shen Muan’s house.
White Gloves laid on the ground, he tried to stand up but staggered. He slowly crawled to Shen Muan’s side, and kept pawing the top of his head trying to wake him up, but it was to no avail.
Soon someone came to take away the two people who had fainted. Their movements were very fast and they didn’t even pay attention to White Gloves who kept gasping on the side.
Zhuang Yiran had been preparing for this day for a long time. He originally only wanted to take Shen Muan away, but he knew that if he didn’t have anything to threaten Shen Muan with, his friend would not be obedient.
Therefore, he ordered the men to also take the child away.
Zhuang Yiran knew very well that if Shen Muan and Ruirui disappeared, he would be the first to be suspected. However, it was a pity that he wasn’t anywhere near. Even if they investigated, it was just a waste of time.
The reason why Zhuang Yiran did not ask the people to restore the scene to its original state was to delay time, doing this would directly make the others suspicious of him. Zhuang Yiran felt very excited at the thought of going head-to-head with them. He had already imagined how Shen Fangqi and Chu Yi would be so angry but wouldn’t be able to do anything about him. Ah, how refreshing…
Thinking of that scene, Zhuang Yiran couldn’t help but laugh while lying on the bed. He was really looking forward to it.
When Shen Muan woke up, he found that he had been locked up in a beautifully decorated room with a large soft bed underneath him. Wasn’t this treatment too good?
But a moment after, Shen Muan couldn’t care less about his current situation. What he was more worried about was Ruirui’s whereabouts.
He was the only one in this room. Although he knew that the door would be locked, Shen Muan still tried to open it. And as expected, the door was locked and it would be very difficult to break it forcibly with his strength. But the most important point now was he had no idea about Ruirui’s current condition.
Shen Muan thought that the best case scenario would be Ruirui not being taken together with him, but this possibility was too small.
Since the other party tied him up here, he must be prepared. The best way to keep him as an obedient hostage was to take Ruirui as well.
The voice came from above.
Shen Muan raised his head and saw that a camera was installed in the corner, the other person had no thought of concealing his intentions at all. Indeed, Shen Muan was already subjected to his control and had fallen to this point. So what was the point of concealing himself?
Shen Muan didn’t acknowledge this comment, he just stared at the camera and asked, “Where is Ruirui?”
TL Note: Ruirui (╥╯^╰╥)
