I'm Not Going to Be Bullied By a Girl - Chapter 475 – An Eye For An Eye
I was stunned on the spot as the truck driver was taken away by traffic police. I stood there and let Xiao Qin stay in my embrace for over 10 minutes, until I suddenly realized Xiao Qin put us into a dangerous situation on purpose.
That’s ridiculous! Regardless of how confident you are of yourself, how can you risk your life to create some romance? Your love is too fanatical, almost to the extent of the terrorists who committed 911.
I angrily grabbed her shoulder and pushed her out of my embrace. Xiao Qin’s arms were shorter than mines, so she could only helplessly reach out her arms towards my chest with a pitiful expression while asking for a hug.
So now you’re pretending to be fragile again? Earlier, your stance was extremely st.u.r.dy when you were running in the opposite direction as me. You would rather create a romantic atmosphere between us than saving your life?
“Ren Xiao Qin.” I called her by her full name to make her realize the importance of the situation, “We almost got run over by a truck, why are you still so happy?”
“It’s not a big deal.” Xiao Qin was still smiling, “It wasn’t fast enough to hit us. If we did die, then we would get transported together to a fairy tale world.”
What the h.e.l.l is a fairy tale world? A world with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs?
“Why is Ye Lin cla.s.smate pretending not to be familiar with the fairy tale world, didn’t we both come over from that world?”
“What? How come I don’t remember?”
“Ah, it’s terrible that Ye Lin cla.s.smate doesn’t have memories of his past life!” Xiao Qin slapped her forehead in lament, “Actually, Ye Lin cla.s.s mate was an alligator in your past life and I was a cat. We lived together happily until we were killed by an evil female hunter. Then the two of us were transported together into a human world.”
It’s a bunch of nonsense, the hunter is clearly a reference to the cla.s.s leader. Why would she kill both of us? And if I was an alligator, why would I live with a cat?
“…because it’s a fairy tale world.” So a fairy tale world doesn’t need to follow and rationality? How convenient.
Xiao Qin’s method of sacrificing her body for love was too radical. I had to make her calm down or it might endanger us in the future.
“I won’t hold your hand at all this week.”
“You’re still asking me why? It seems your becoming even more moronic. I can’t believe you were messing around when a truck was coming towards us, that will eventually kill us. If you don’t get smarter, then you can’t be my girlfriend anymore.”
“But, but… I wouldn’t be hit. I had at least three methods to avoid it…”
So it’s because you had a lot of confidence it yourself? But I still can’t encourage her actions or it will lead to trouble one day.
“You have to stop these actions in the future.”
“You can’t go close to other dangerous areas either. If you don’t know what’s a dangerous area, then it’s anywhere that may take you to another world.”
“But Ye Lin cla.s.smate, I’ll be troubled if you stop me from flushing a toilet…”
“Who said you can’t flush a toilet? Why would flushing a toilet be dangerous?”
“I heard from an anime group that in the show ‘Kyo Kara Maoh!’, the main protagonist traveled to another world when he flushed the toilet, so….”
What a weird setting. If the protagonist can travel to another world through a toilet, then wouldn’t a lot of p.i.s.s and s.h.i.t also travel to that world? I can’t even imagine that scene where dark brown and yellow is raining from the sky. It’s a good thing I already ate…
I told Xiao Qin she had to obey traffic laws, stay away from power lines, furnaces, chemicals, and other dangerous areas. It felt like I was educating a kindergartner.
The same night, I listened to the listening device recordings as usual. I thought I wouldn’t learn anything, but I heard a conversation between Su Qiao and her manager, Fu ShiJian.
Fu ShiJian was telling Su Qiao to accompany a client to drink, but she declined. I thought it was a useless conversation, but I never thought one of Fu ShiJian’s sentences would cause my heart to skip.
He said to Su Qiao: “Madam Ai ShuQiao would never help you unconditionally, don’t get too overconfident. Anyone who goes against me doesn’t have a good ending. I’ll let the one who took you in have a good taste of my power. If you don’t report back to the company, whatever accidents he gets into, for example getting run over by a truck, is not my responsibility.”
“Get run over by a truck?”
It can’t be that much of a coincidence where I ran into trouble the same day Fu ShiJian made the same threats. The most reasonable explanation was Fu ShiJian was the one who arranged the truck that almost ran over me and Xiao Qin.
He’s actually going for my life? I may be the second shareholder of Tian Mu Xing Guang Corp, but I haven’t fought for control of the company. And you should have already known I was Ai ShuQiao’s daughter, wouldn’t killing the boss’ son affect your future?
I then remembered what Ai ShuQiao once said: It was efficient to create rules through compet.i.tion.
Ai ShuQiao, who revered the strong, felt contempt for the weak. I’m afraid to her, any method, including homicide, was an acceptable means in compet.i.tions. Even if her son died, she wouldn’t be angry at Fu ShiJian, she would only feel nothing as it was simply because her son wasn’t as strong as she expected.
I thought Fu ShiJian was only a pervert, I never expected him to be this merciless and vicious.
What made me more mad was his actions also threatened Xiao Qin.
Although the dangerous situation was caused by Xiao Qin’s stupidity, I won’t allow anyone else to threaten Xiao Qin’s life.
Since he used this incident to declare war, then fine, Fu ShiJian will be one of the scoundrels I won’t forgive. I’ll use any means necessary to defeat you.
I began to consider what resources I had after I made my resolve. Peng TouSi was on my side, so I could ask for his help if it gets dangerous. If anyone knew someone was after her daughter, Auntie Ren wouldn’t stand idle. But she was pregnant, so I had to try and not anger her.
I could even use Eunuch Cao and the Five Tigers. After I thought about it, I came to a conclusion that Eunuch Cao could only create rumors online about Fu ShiJian. As for the Five Tigers, I could only try and mislead the enemy because he would think all my underlings are trash.
What was unexpected was the next morning when I was eating breakfast, I heard a news report on TV: A certain company’s manager, Fu ShiJian, was kidnapped from his office last night. Only one of his ears was left behind at the scene, no one knew if he was dead or alive. They suspected it was a violent gang who committed the crime…
I immediately spat out all the bread in my mouth. Su Qiao’s eyes also bulged out in disbelief.
Who did it, who’s that vicious? It’s true Ai ShuQiao is capable of it, but she would never do it for me. Peng TouSi might be good at information gathering and fighting, but he tried to forgive people for their mistakes after he reached enlightenment, so he wouldn’t cut off someone’s ear.
I don’t know why, but I feel like the mastermind is Xiao Qin! An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth really suits her style! But if Fu ShiJian was so vicious and merciless, he would definitely have a couple bodyguards armed with guns near him at all times. Xiao Qin might be a genius martial artists, but there’s no way she can charge in alone, kidnap Fu ShiJian, then cut off one of his ears as a demonstration.
Did she have help? The Rose Group listens to her, but this wasn’t a crime a group of young girls could commit! If it was an adult, then isn’t it just the shoe repair uncle? He didn’t seem like he knew how to fight, so he should be unrelated.
I suddenly remembered what Xiao Qin said to me when I realized Xiao Qin had installed a listening device in the lunchbox she gave me: The shoemaker was desperate and that’s why he relied on help from ‘us’.
When I asked Xiao Qin what she meant by ‘us’, she avoided the question. She only said her mom didn’t like them and I shouldn’t get too close.
Why would people who Auntie Ren didn’t like work together with Xiao Qin and take in the shoe repair uncle. Just thinking about it sent shivers down my back.
I left behind Su Qiao, who was confused about whether she should be happy or worried after hearing the news, and ran to the school. The first sentence I asked Xiao Qin was:
“Xiao Qin, what’s your relationship with the people who kidnapped Fu ShiJian.”
“Huh, Fu ShiJian sounds familiar. Is he the one they were talking about on the news, the manager who got his ear cut off?”
Xiao Qin pretended to be innocent. The news didn’t even use Fu ShiJian’s full name, so she was definitely related.
Under my incessant questioning, Xiao Qin looked up and seemed to carelessly say:
“Who knows who Fu ShiJian provoked, maybe brother Optimus Prime was the one who did it.”
“Bulls.h.i.t.” I was furious, “And you were the one who said brother Optimus Prime was taken by a crime syndicate.”
Xiao Qin said with a laugh: “Um maybe they really liked brother Optimus Prime, so they listened to him and came to pay their grat.i.tude to Ye Lin cla.s.smate. Since there’s the ‘The Cat Returns‘, then it isn’t strange to have ‘The Crime Syndicate Returns’.”
