Chapter 1248: Dr. Benjamin
It had nothing to do with Huang Youcai and the assassination of Yang Ming, so he also stood up in a timely manner, smiled, and said to the black-shirted man and Alice, “I drank too much coffee just now; I have to go to the bathroom and smoke a cigarette along the way.”
The black-shirted man nodded in appreciation. Huang Youcai was very savvy; it had nothing to do with him, and he didn’t want to know. This was also an important reason why the black-shirted man was pleased to work with him.
The cooperation between the black-shirted man and Huang Youcai was also limited to Yang Ming. The black-shirted man’s other plans would naturally not be revealed to Huang Youcai, but Huang Youcai didn’t care. Since he thought this wasn’t related to him, it would seem that he was conspiring if he asked more.
Moreover, Huang Youcai did not think that the black-shirted man was just targeting Yang Ming. Huang Youcai was shocked to learn about the black-shirted man’s financial strength and power. If he was only targeting Yang Ming as the ultimate goal, then this goal was a bit too shortsighted. Therefore, the black-shirted man must have another hidden plan.
However, these things weren’t related to Huang Youcai. Huang Youcai wasn’t stupid. The more he knew, the deeper he would fall. However, he only wanted to kill Yang Ming and then separate from the black-shirted man.
As for what the black-shirted man was going to do after that, Huang Youcai didn’t bother about it, and he wouldn’t continue to make suggestions. He didn’t want to be in the same boat as the black-shirted man.
Victoria had been listening to the movements of the private room next door. She felt anxious when she heard the door of the adjacent private room opening. Victoria only opened a small gap in her private room’s door so she would not raise suspicion from the people of the next private room. It was just nice to see the scene in the corridor, but it would attract the attention of others.
She saw the door of the private room open, and a man of about thirty years old came out. The man was a little thin, having a board buzz cut, but his appearance wasn’t very decent. It was rather wretched.
Seeing that the person wasn’t Alice, Victoria breathed a sigh of relief. This person wouldn’t recognize her, so Victoria didn’t need to be careful because it would be more suspicious.
Victoria waited until the thirty-year-old man was completely out of the private room. After he closed the door to the private room, Victoria also walked out of her private room and followed the thirty-year-old man.
The people in the corridor weren’t only Huang Youcai and Victoria, but also waiters and other guests. Therefore, Huang Youcai wouldn’t doubt anything and think too much when people passed by.
When Huang Youcai walked to the bathroom, he didn’t even look back. Victoria, however, had walked faster, passing Huang Youcai and stepped into the bathroom first.
The men’s and women’s restrooms in the coffee shop were separated on the left and right sides, so the doors faced each other. At the end of the corridor was the sink in the middle. Victoria saw the direction Huang Youcai was heading and naturally judged that he was going to the restroom. Because the emergency stairs and the elevator were on the other side, there was nothing else except the restroom. Therefore, she inferred that Huang Youcai was heading toward the restroom.
Victoria stepped into the women’s restroom first; it wasn’t bad that there was no one else in the bathroom. Otherwise, Victoria would be misunderstood if she were using a camera inside the restroom.
Huang Youcai naturally wouldn’t pay attention to Victoria, and he was a man. He wouldn’t peek at the women’s restroom. Victoria stood in the furthest position in the women’s restroom, then she adjusted the camera’s focal length and turned off the flash. When Huang Youcai came to the end of the corridor, she pressed the camera’s shutter button.
Victoria bought a card electronic digital camera; it didn’t have a shutter sound like the SLR. After the camera was muted, the shutter sound couldn’t be heard, so Huang Youcai was photographed by Victoria without any notice.
Huang Youcai walked into the restroom and peed, then he lit a cigarette at the window. He had not appeared in public for a long time, but no one could recognize him now.
Once Huang Youcai was committed to avenge Wang Xifan and Wang Zhitao, Huang Youcai left the city and went to a remote place to start a new life. However, Huang Youcai wouldn’t plan for himself before he avenged the Wang Family; he needed to put an end to this matter.
Victoria’s primary purpose was to take pictures. After her goal was achieved, she didn’t stay any longer. Especially when she saw Huang Youcai just smoking at the window, Victoria gave up the idea to continue staying here.
Victoria put the camera in her cuff and walked out of the restroom. However, Alice’s private room door opened the moment when Victoria walked out of the bathroom!
Victoria was shocked and quickly moved the half of her body back, observing the movement in the corridor through the mirror on the sink at the end of the corridor.
After Huang Youcai went out, Alice wanted to say something, but the black-shirted man waved his hand. “Alice, go to check the movement at the door…”
Alice was slightly stunned, then she understood what her brother meant. He wanted her to check whether Huang Youcai was eavesdropping on their conversation outside the door. However, this private room was very soundproof; the possibility should be very small.
Alice got up, opened the door of the private room, looked around, and quickly closed it. Huang Youcai wasn’t outside the door, and Alice didn’t notice Victoria.
If Alice’s eyesight was good enough, she should be able to see Victoria from the mirror over the sink at the end of the corridor, but obviously, Alice didn’t pay attention to the little details. She mainly wanted to see if Huang Youcai was standing at the door. As long as Huang Youcai was not standing at the door, the rest had nothing to do with her.
What’s more, Alice was also afraid that Huang Youcai would look at her private room from afar. If he saw Alice opening the door, then obviously, he could guess her intentions. This would let Huang Youcai have the idea of distrust.
When Alice saw no one in the corridor, she quickly closed the door and returned to her seat. “Brother, it’s fine; Mr. Huang is not at the door.”
The black-shirted man nodded and made a gesture that she could continue to speak. “Alice, what were you going to say just now?”
“Has Dr. Benjamin contacted you recently?” asked Alice.
“He contacted me.” The black-shirted man nodded and pointed to his face. “My mask is the latest improvement from Dr. Benjamin…”
“Is Dr. Benjamin sure that Shu Ya was the little girl who had seen Sun Sikong in the past?” Alice asked with some doubts. “But, I did not see anything unusual on her face after I got in touch with her.”
“In the beginning, I also thought she wasn’t, but from her frequent contact with Yang Ming, it should be her without a doubt.” The black-shirted man said, “This proves that the mask of Sun Sikong is a more advanced technology; it even surpassed Dr. Benjamin a few years ago!”
“If that’s the case, it’s true.” Alice sighed. “Shu Ya’s face is very real; it is far more real than your expressionless mask.”
“It should be correct. It’s fine if I just took a look, but she would be suspicious if I were in touch with her for a long time.” The black-shirted man nodded. “To find the whereabouts of Sun Sikong, you must start from Shu Ya. You should maintain the relationship with Shu Ya; don’t break the connection.”
“Brother, don’t worry. My personal relationship with Shu Ya is very good.” Alice said with some pride. There was a purpose for Alice to be a hardcore fan of Shu Ya. Alice wasn’t very clear about the things between Dr. Benjamin and her brother, but one thing was still very clear that her brother had been helping Dr. Benjamin to find a person called Sun Sikong. According to the investigation, the famous celebrity, Shu Ya, was the previous Su Ya, but no one knew how she changed her appearance.
After further investigation, she found that when Sun Sikong settled in Song Jiang, he did have frequent contact with a girl named Su Ya. But when Sun Sikong disappeared later, the girl named Su Ya also disappeared together.
Although the names of Shu Ya and Su Ya were different by the surname, they wouldn’t be noticed by the black-shirted man. After all, one was a famous Hong Kong and Taiwan singer, and the other was a small girl from Song Jiang. How could they be the same person?
However, there was a major discovery in the investigation, that Su Ya was actually Yang Ming’s girlfriend! This discovery had surprised the black-shirted man.
However, he did not see Yang Ming contact Su Ya again. Therefore, it became a challenging job to look for Su Ya. However, unfortunately, the big celebrity, Shu Ya, actually came to Song Jiang to hold a concert!
This did not catch much attention from the black-shirted man. What caught his attention was the frequent contact between Shu Ya and Yang Ming! This made the black-shirted man doubtful! The two people who had no connection, however, had a relationship with Yang Ming at the same time. Their names were especially very similar! This made the black-shirted man think more about it!
In particular, knowing about the mask functions developed by Sun Sikong, the black-shirted man thought that this Shu Ya was more likely to be Su Ya. She was just wearing a mask developed by Sun Sikong.
So, after that, the black-shirted man paid attention to Shu Ya, but his identity restricted his actions and made him unable to investigate Shu Ya further. Hence, the black-shirted man entrusted his sister, Alice, to investigate Shu Ya’s identity.
After receiving the order from her brother, Alice disguised herself as a fan of Shu Ya and began to collect information about Shu Ya using her influence in the upper class of Europe.
What caught the black-shirted man’s attention was the meeting between Yang Ming and Shu Ya in Macau. A famous celebrity without any scandal actually met an unfamiliar man frequently. This didn’t make sense; the black-shirted man wouldn’t believe that they didn’t have any relationship.
Therefore, the black-shirted man was even more skeptical. This Shu Ya was the Su Ya. When Yang Ming and Shu Ya meet for the third time in Europe, the black-shirted man let Alice get involved, hoping to find some clues.
“If Sun Sikong can join our organization, it will definitely be a very powerful booster.” The black-shirted man smiled. “At that time, I don’t have to be afraid of that person!”
Alice didn’t know much about these things, so when her brother said these things, she couldn’t make an evaluation; she could only nod silently.
“Keep up your relationship with Shu Ya. Try to find out more about Shu Ya from Yang Ming.” The black-shirted man said, “We don’t have much time.”
“I understand. I will try my best.” Alice solemnly responded.
Someone knocked on the door outside; the black-shirted man shouted loudly and asked, “Who is it?”
“It’s me.” The voice of Huang Youcai came from outside the door.
“Come in.” The black-shirted man said with a sigh of relief.
Huang Youcai pushed in the door, smiled, and sat in his position. “Have you two done catching up with each other?”
” Hehe , we haven’t seen each other for a long time; we are just discussing some family matters. It’s nothing.” The black-shirted man waved his hand and said, “If you don’t have anything else, let’s just break this up. Keep in touch.”
After Huang Youcai returned to the private room, Victoria also quickly went out of the restroom and returned to her private room, continuing to attach her ear to the door and listening to the movement outside the door.
When the private room next door was opened again, Victoria noticed that Alice and the two unfamiliar men had left the private room, including the man she had met in the bathroom.
She could not go out to take photos at this time. Not only would she be easily discovered by these people, but it also wasn’t worth the trouble to expose herself. Especially when Alice knew her, Victoria had no need to take the risk!
However, Victoria went to the window in the private room and opened the window. She carefully looked at the terrain outside before quickly jumping onto the window sill and out, grabbing the air conditioner’s iron frame under the window sill.
At this moment, Victoria’s entire body was suspended in midair, and this was on the second floor. Victoria wasn’t too high above the floor downstairs with the air conditioner’s iron frame as a buffer.
So Victoria released her hands holding the air conditioner’s iron frame, and easily dropped to the ground below. At this time, the back of the cafe was sparsely populated, so no one saw Victoria jumping down, especially when Victoria’s movements were very swift. There was no pause in the series of movements. After reaching the ground, she quickly went in the direction of the coffee shop’s main entrance.
Alice, the black-shirted man, and Huang Youcai were going down the stairs, and they had to pay the bill at the counter first, so their actions were naturally not as fast as Victoria. After Victoria came to the coffee shop’s main entrance, she quickly hid behind a station billboard.
After a while, Alice and the two men went out of the coffee shop. Alice stopped a taxi directly and left. The man who she saw in the restroom before and another black-shirted man went into another cab.
When Huang Youcai and the black-shirted man went out, Victoria took a few photos with the camera. After Huang Youcai and the black-shirted man got into the taxi, Victoria hesitated and then stopped a taxi and followed them.
The black-shirted man’s anti-tracking ability was quite strong. No matter if someone were tracking him or not, he wouldn’t have the taxi go directly to their destination.
At the door of a grocery store, the black-shirted man said to the taxi driver, “Stop the car; we need to buy a pack of cigarettes.”
The taxi driver listened to the black-shirted man saying “we,” and he naturally understood that the black-shirted man and Huang Youcai wanted to get off together, so he was displeased immediately. “How can you do that?! If you all get off and run away, who should I ask for the fare?”
“Don’t worry. This is a hundred yuan; I will leave it here.” The black-shirted man took out a hundred yuan and threw it on the taxi’s dashboard, then he said, “You just wait for us for a while!”
The driver saw the black-shirted man throwing a hundred yuan as a deposit, so he naturally no longer said anything. He nodded and let them get off.
When Victoria saw the black-shirted man and Huang Youcai parked far away, and she quickly had her taxi stop, letting him park the car not far away.
When Victoria saw Huang Youcai and the black-shirted man enter a grocery store, and their taxi was waiting outside the grocery store, Victoria was relieved. She thought that they must be buying something at the grocery store.
So, Victoria waited patiently in the car.
Unsure how long she waited, the taxi driver of the black-shirted man and Huang Youcai got off. Maybe he was a little impatient waiting for them, so he entered the grocery store.
Not long after, the taxi driver came out again, scolding about something. Although it was a distance from Victoria, the taxi driver had a loud voice. “Motherf*cker, these two people are really strange. They didn’t want the one hundred yuan and left by the grocery store’s back door. What were they thinking really? The taxi fares are only tens of yuan!”
When the taxi driver finished speaking, he got into his car and then drove away. Victoria was astounded after listening to the taxi driver, blaming herself for being sloppy.
However, after thinking about it, what can I do if I was not sloppy? Can I follow these two people into the grocery store? It’s a bit too obvious! Could it be a coincidence that we took a taxi to the grocery store?
Victoria also relieved thinking of this. She said to her driver, “Let’s go. Return to the Song Jiang International Hotel.”
The waiting time was also counted by the price meter, so the taxi driver would naturally not complain about how long it had been. After hearing Victoria’s instruction, he quickly responded and drove the car in the direction of the Song Jiang International Hotel.
