Hello, Mr. Major General - Chapter 1576
He Zhichu had heard from his subordinates that Wen Shouyi’s mother had sent flowers to Gu Nianzhi’s room, but Gu Nianzhi had rejected her and ordered someone to lock her up. He Zhichu hadn’t taken it to heart at the time.
Gu Nianzhi wasn’t happy about it anyway, so she could just lock her up. He had almost forgotten that there was another person locked up in the storage room on the second floor.
But now that he thought about it, something didn’t seem right.
“… Then she didn’t ask to enter your room just now to exchange flowers for yours, did she?” He Zhichu’s face instantly turned as black as the bottom of a pot.
“Of course not. I already said no one can go in, and she still wanted to sneak into the room. Even a fool would know that she had ulterior motives.” Gu Nianzhi smiled and raised her fist. “So I threw my iron fist at her.”
He Zhichu frowned.
He still remembered that when he had just brought Gu Nianzhi back, he had deliberately pushed her into the house in a wheelchair to give those people a chance to spread the news.
If he remembered correctly, the person who had sent the photo of Gu Nianzhi in the wheelchair to Qin Yaoguang and the others should have been Wen Shouyi’s father.
Her parents were both gardeners from the He family and had worked in the He family for decades.
They had been well-behaved all these years. Other than having a very smart daughter, they had never had much of a presence among the He family’s servants.
However, this seemingly well-behaved gardener couple was actually the main suspect in the theft of Gu Nianzhi eight years ago? !
He Zhichu clenched his fists so hard that the joints on his fingers cracked. “I think they’re tired of living!”
Gu Nianzhi quickly tugged at his sleeve and asked anxiously, “Young Master He, what do you want?”
He Zhichu pulled out his pistol and said coldly, “Of course I want to torture them and then kill them!”
“Hey! Don’t be so simple and crude!” Gu Nianzhi blinked. “You’ll be exposed like this. What if they turn on you?”
He Zhichu laughed coldly. “Who would dare to do that in my territory? !”
Gu Nianzhi’s eyes were blinded by his domineering aura.
She clutched her chest, her other hand still tugging at He Zhichu’s sleeve. She pursed her lips and smiled. “Young Master He, calm down. You were wise and resourceful when you were with us. Why do you only know how to fight and kill when you’re back?”
He Zhichu held her hand and said coldly, “In the face of absolute power, you don’t need to be resourceful.”
It was enough to crush him.
Gu Nianzhi looked at He Zhichu and sighed. She thought that if she had grown up with He Zhichu on this side, she would probably think that what he was doing was normal.
However, she had grown up with Huo Shaoheng on that side of the world.
Even though Huo Shaoheng was a person of absolute power and enjoyed a privileged position in that world, he never took such privileges for granted, nor did he put himself above law and order.
He was the guardian of order, not the overseer of it.
Under his upbringing, Gu Nianzhi was also a follower of the rules.
She stood up from the sofa and said with a faint smile, “Young Master He, leave this matter to me, okay? They kidnapped me back then, and now I’m back to sue these human traffickers.”
He Zhichu was stunned. “You want to sue them? You want to make a big deal out of this?”
“Of course I want to make a big deal out of it.” Gu Nianzhi raised her eyebrows slightly, and her bright, big eyes flashed with the light of wanting to make a big deal out of it. “How else would we be able to live up to their schemes? If you quietly kill these people, you’ll be letting them off easy. You’ll also leave trouble for you and your father in the future.”
He Zhichu also knew that if they secretly executed the gardener couple, it would indeed bring some trouble to himself and his father.
But this trouble, in his opinion, was worth it.
He said nonchalantly, “I’ll give them a chance to be judged. It’s just a secret trial. I’ll make them die knowing why they died.”
“Young Master He, do you think they’re the masterminds behind this?” Gu Nianzhi pulled a long face in disagreement. “I still need them to dig out the people behind them.”
“I said I’d judge them first and dig out everything they know before executing them. Don’t worry, none of the masterminds can escape.” He Zhichu still wanted to resolve this matter in private.
First of all, if the He family had a traitor like this and they didn’t punish him harshly, it would raise questions about the He family’s ability to carry out their orders.
Second of all, they wanted to intimidate the other servants of the He family. If they did something similar, this was what would happen to them.
Gu Nianzhi was silent for a long time. She sat back in her wheelchair and said angrily, “Fine, do what you want. Send me back. I can’t stay here any longer.”
He Zhichu saw that she was angry and quickly walked over to pull her out of the wheelchair. He immediately compromised, “Look at your temper. I really have to go along with you. Alright, do whatever you want. I won’t get involved.”
“Really?” Gu Nianzhi rolled her eyes. “But I still need a few more favors from you.”
“Fine, fine, fine. Do whatever you want. These two are definitely going to be arrested anyway.” He Zhichu took out his phone and began giving orders.
Gu Nianzhi quickly said, “Keep an eye on them in secret first. Don’t let them escape. I’ll draft a legal document now. I’ll go to your Police Department tomorrow morning to report the case and request that they be arrested.”
Eight years ago, Gu Nianzhi was only twelve years old and was a minor.
In the Huaxia Empire, kidnapping a minor was a felony of the same weight as buying and selling a minor.
Therefore, there were very few cases of kidnapping and selling because of the strict legislation in this area.
He Zhichu had no choice but to say, “I’ll go with you tomorrow. I’ll prepare the evidence.”
Gu Nianzhi pointed at the video surveillance camera. “This is all indirect evidence. I’m both the victim and the most direct witness. I can definitely prove that they committed crimes and bring them to justice.”
Although she actually couldn’t remember what had happened back then, the video gave her a chance to “regroup” her memories.
He Zhichu went to prepare the evidence, but Gu Nianzhi was wondering why she couldn’t cry or scream?
After He Zhichu left, Gu Nianzhi quickly contacted Lu Jin again.
“Dad, do you know how Qin Yaoguang stole me from the He family eight years ago?” Gu Nianzhi asked Lu Jin in a low voice.
Lu Jin thought for a moment and said, “When I chased after them, they had already taken you out and were about to arrange for you to board the plane. I took you away from the airport.”
This meant that the men and children who had been seen by passers-by that night getting into the car in front of the He family’s entrance were all fake doubles.
At that time, Gu Nianzhi had actually still been in the He family’s living room and had not left.
Gu Nianzhi smiled and said, “Then the other party is really scheming. Even if you hadn’t gone and taken me away, they would have pinned this on you. Fortunately, you lived up to your reputation…”
Lu Jin, Gu Xiangwen’s appearance, actually confirmed the other party’s series of “Framing”actions.
This was probably the reason why the He family didn’t find anyone else involved in the investigation.
Because Gu Xiangwen really showed up and took Gu Nianzhi away!
Who would have the time to go back and watch the video surveillance footage from that time?!
This time, Gu Nianzhi watched the video surveillance footage again and again. It was actually because she had “cheated,” and Lu Jin had personally helped her cheat.
Gu Nianzhi told him about the clues she had found in the video surveillance footage. She was puzzled. “… But I didn’t cry or scream. I just stood in the middle of the gardener couple like an idiot. I was too obedient! This isn’t scientific. It’s completely impossible.”
Lu Jin said without hesitation, “Then they must have gotten the Triazolam that I improved in Gu Qin’s biological laboratory from Qin Yaoguang. It’s also called tachlor.”
“Tacholon is a benzodiazepine-type hypnotic drug. After my modification, the time it takes to take effect has been reduced from 15 minutes to 0.1 seconds.”
“It was originally a light blue pill, but it can also dissolve in water and cover the nose and mouth. As long as you touch it for 0.1 seconds, it can produce a sedative and hypnotic effect. It can also produce a short-term memory loss.”
Gu Nianzhi’s expression was unsightly, and she immediately said, “Then it looks like they covered my face with this thing within seven seconds of the lights being turned off…”
However, this couple’s hands and feet were really fast. She didn’t know how long they had practiced.
One person covered her mouth and nose, then draped a cloak over her body.
Another person took off her pink diamond crown, and put a mask over her face.
Then he quickly pulled her to stand behind He Zhichu.
She was only two steps away from him.
He Zhichu did not sleep the whole night. He had been watching the video.
She was so close to him when he was torn apart and living a life worse than death.
This made him even more sorrowful and bitter.
This was really the best example of thinking she was far away when she had been close at hand all along.
He thought that the furthest distance between her and him was not that he loved her and she would not recipricate, but that he lost her while she stood behind him.
