Chapter 2345: Capture Them
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Don’t let any of them go!” The chief took the lead and chased after them. There were only a few of them, so it was best to capture and interrogate them properly. It would be best if they could get something out of them. If they could not get anything out of them, then they would just have to make an example out of them.
They were not good people, so teaching them a lesson would be considered a societal contribution.
The farce appeared out of nowhere and was quickly put down. Jiang Yao shivered as she hid behind Lu Xingzhi. The wind was too cold at night, and her coat was much thinner.
With the makeup on Jiang Yao’s face, Lu Xingzhi could not see her true appearance, so when he was done, he went to hold Jiang Yao’s hand. He quickly removed his coat and draped it over her shoulders, sensing the coldness in her palm. “You don’t even know how to talk when you are cold,” he reprimanded her quietly.
“I just came back to my senses.” Jiang Yao quickly saw her body shrinking into Lu Xingzhi’s coat. The coat still carried his warmth. He was tall, so his clothes were big as well; wearing them on her body was like a child stealing an adult’s clothes.
“Oh, right! Some of them hid in the bushes by the roadside. They don’t have any weapons on them. They must be greedy for money to be here. Will they be arrested as well?” Jiang Yao asked.
“I’ll inform the police. We’ll catch them all,” Lu Xingzhi said.
“Those unruly people!” Zhou Junmin walked to Jiang Yao’s side and whispered, “Colonel, time to bring Mrs. Lu home to rest. It’s late, so we won’t go back to drink. We’ll hide the rest of the wine and wait for your return and continue drinking.”
Everyone knew the reason Lu Xingzhi wanted to go with Jiang Yao. After Zhou Junmin finished speaking, he rubbed his palms and said, “Why don’t you bring me along too? One more person to take care of you.”
“There’s no need.” Jiang Yao patted Zhou Junmin’s shoulder. “Thank you.”
Very few people were willing to put their lives in the hands of others, so Jiang Yao was sincerely grateful for Zhou Junmin’s care.
They came in a group, but only Lu Xingzhi and Jiang Yao went back. When there was no one else, Lu Xingzhi carried Jiang Yao in his arms and quickly went home.
Mrs. Jiang had been waiting at the gate. When she saw Lu Xingzhi carrying Jiang Yao, she was so scared that she almost cried.
“What’s wrong? What happened to Yaoyao?” Mrs. Jiang’s voice was choked with sobs.
“Mom, Yaoyao is fine. She’s just cold, so I carried her back to save her from catching a cold,” Lu Xingzhi hurriedly explained. “The people outside ran away. The chief brought some men to chase after them. The rest were arranged to verify their identities. My wife and I did not step out of the entrance.”
Mrs. Jiang patted her chest repeatedly and said, “Right, Yaoyao’s phone kept ringing not long after you guys went out. It’s that old phone. It’s an unknown number, so I did not pick it up.”
Lu Xingzhi carried Jiang Yao to the living room sofa before he put her down. He threw a blanket on Jiang Yao and went to the bedroom to get her phone. He looked at the phone. There were a few missed calls, but the numbers were all unknown. Obviously, the person had used extraordinary means to block the phone numbers.
Lu Xingzhi had a hunch that that call was not from an ordinary person. When the phone was in Jiang Yao’s hands, Jiang Yao looked at it and dialed back. Lu Xingzhi sat beside Jiang Yao and listened closely..
