Chapter 673: Something Has Happened!
Jiang Tao and Xiao Lingyu had agreed to meet.
However, when he reached the agreed time and place, Jiang Tao did not see Xiao Lingyu. He was suddenly a little worried.
He understood Xiao Lingyu. She was always punctual.
She was already ten minutes late. That was very unusual. Jiang Tao took out his phone and called Xiao Lingyu.
However, the moment the call was made, the voice on the phone said, “Sorry, the call can not be connected for the time being!” It meant that the phone didn’t have any signal. Could it be that Xiao Lingyu was on the elevator?
Jiang Tao waited for a while and called again. There was still no signal. Jiang Tao frowned. He couldn’t help but worry.
“Did something happen?” Jiang Tao said to himself. Jiang Tao wanted to leave and check on her. However, he stopped himself. ‘What if she’s already on the way here?’ Then, he hesitated, ‘But what if something really happened?’
Jiang Tao thought about the headlines he saw. Everyone woman close to Gong Tianhao would be in trouble.
Jiang Tao thought for a moment and then called Li Yuanhang. “Yuanhang, get someone to go to the hotel to check if something happened to Lingyu.”
Li Yuanhang was shocked. He asked, “Young Master Jiang, what happened?”
Jiang Tao said, “Lingyu and I are supposed to meet at seven, but it has already been half an hour, and she’s still nowhere to be seen. As you know, Lingyu is very punctual. She will never be late.
“Also, I’ve called her a few times already, but the calls couldn’t be connected. I’m worried that something might have happened to her considering she made the news as soon as she arrived in Beijing.”
Ordinary people didn’t know about Gong Tianhao’s identity, but many news media outlets knew a little more about him. It was how Xiao Lingyu got in the headlines.
This naturally attracted the attention of some people with bad intentions.
When Li Yuanhang heard this, he immediately said, “I’ll immediately call the hotel manager to take a look. I’ll also rush to the hotel now!” He couldn’t gamble with Xiao Lingyu’s safety.
If anything happened to Xiao Lingyu, not to mention Gong Tianhao, who might recover his memory in the future, even Old Master Gong wouldn’t forgive him. After all, Old Master Gong loved Xiao Lingyu dearly.
After Li Yuanhang hung up on Jiang Tao, he immediately called the hotel to ask if Xiao Lingyu had gone out. The front desk told her that Xiao Lingyu hadn’t left her room. However, the calls to her room went unanswered. This was clear that something wrong must have happened.
Li Yuanhang immediately asked the manager to check on the guest in the 9999 presidential suite. He must report everything to him.
As Li Yuanhang departed, he informed Jiang Tao that something might have happened to Xiao Lingyu in the hotel. He would go over to take a look now.
When the hotel manager received a call from his superior, he quickly went to check the room.
When he reached the upper floor, he felt a strange silence, and the atmosphere was very unusual.
Then, he noticed that there was a very loud noise at the door of the 9999 presidential suite. The manager was so scared that his face turned pale. While he notified the security, he also informed someone to get the room card.
Then, he quickly ran to the room, knocked on the door, and shouted, “Miss Xiao, Miss Xiao, are you okay?”
The door was locked, so he couldn’t see what was happening inside.
The woman who was pointing her gun at Xiao Lingyu immediately sharpened her eyes.
She ordered sternly, “Xiao San, drag the man in!” If he was left out there shouting, he’d attract too much attention. They were in a confrontation with Xiao Lingyu. Xiao Lingyu had a hostage, so it made them in a passive position. However, if they could make an outsider their hostage, then they would regain the upper hand.
Xiao Lingyu’s eyes immediately revealed a trace of anger. Then, she shouted loudly, “Go, hurry up and leave!”
When the manager heard the woman’s voice, his pupils constricted. He did not have time to think and immediately turned around to run. He knew that it was very dangerous inside. He had to run to get help. Otherwise, the guest would be in even more danger. While he ran, the manager thought to pull the alarm. However, the situation inside the room was unknown. Pressing the alarm might trigger the kidnappers, putting the guest in more danger.
The manager escaped into the stairwell. He quickly called Li Yuanhang, “Assistant Li, something really happened to the guest in room 9999. I heard the sound of a fight and the voices of a woman and a man inside. The woman wanted to get someone to capture me, so I quickly ran away.”
Li Yuanhang’s heart tightened when he heard that. He immediately asked, “Can you recognize their identities?”
“No.” The manager shook his head. “I’ve called a few security guards. When the security guards come, we’ll go and take a look!” He was just a normal person, and he didn’t know the situation inside the room. If he barged in, it would be of no use. He’d only put himself in danger.
Li Yuanhang said, “Okay, get the security to go over and take a look. Also, don’t let anyone escape. I’ll be there in a moment. Also, don’t anger the people inside. If they hurt the hostage, the consequences are not something a small manager like you can bear.” The hostage was their boss’ wife. Of course, Li Yuanhang didn’t say that to the manager.
After Li Yuanhang hung up the manager’s call, he immediately informed Jiang Tao, “Young master Jiang, Xiao Lingyu is indeed in trouble. The manager said that there were several people in her room and he heard the sound of a fight. I will rush over immediately.”
“What?” When Jiang Tao heard that, he stood up from his seat in surprise. Then, he left in a hurry and said, “The sound of a fight? Lingyu wouldn’t be kidnapped, would she? Also, what’s wrong with your hotel? Why didn’t anyone notice that a group of kidnappers had entered the hotel?”
Li Yuanhang knew that he had failed.
“I’m sorry. It’s my fault!” Li Yuanhang said.
He was too careless. Xiao Lingyu had been exposed on the news the moment she came to the capital, so she would definitely be noticed. He should have arranged for a few people to protect her.
Li Yuanhang blamed himself. If something really happened to Xiao Lingyu, he would not forgive himself even if Gong Tianhao and Old Master Gong did not punish him.
