Chapter 1267: Not Here?
Looking at his sunken eyes and Sun Hongjun becoming thin and pallid after a few days, Sun San really couldn’t tolerate it anymore. So, he said, “Master, please eat something. You can’t always smoke like this…”
“I have no appetite…” Sun Hongjun smiled bitterly, nipped out the cigarette in his hand, and threw it in the ashtray.
Although he was placed under house arrest here by Tian Long, Tian Long ordered his men not to treat the Sun Family badly. Therefore, food and tobacco were all served. Apart from being free to enter and leave, they basically could get what they wanted.
“Dad, don’t worry too much; when there is life, there is hope.” Sun Jie was really sad when she looked at her father. In just a few days, Sun Hongjun seemed to have aged by years; he was nothing like the high-spirited person from before. Now, he was more like a coveted old man.
Although Sun Jie had no plans, if she seemed to be pessimistic at the moment, then the Sun Family would be completely finished. Therefore, Sun Jie couldn’t be as sullen as Sun Hongjun. She had to be optimistic, persist, and wait for an unknown opportunity.
The entire Sun Family did not expect that Tian Long was suddenly able to betray and embezzle the Sun Family’s assets. The Sun Family’s trust in Tian Long was like Tian Long’s trust in Wang Renping; they never doubted it.
It was just ridiculous that the Sun Family trusted Tian Long, but Tian Long betrayed the Sun Family, while Tian Long trusted Wang Renping, but Wang Renping was also about to betray him.
But this was what the Sun Family never thought of. Sun Jie really had no ideas at all. Although she was self-sufficient and intelligent, under this circumstance of being under house arrest and under someone else’s roof, Sun Jie had no other options. There was no way to contact the outside world. They could only continue to stay here.
In the past two days, Sun Hongjun also tried to persuade sentimentally and rationally to those who guarded them. He promised that if the guards released them, they would definitely have a reward in the future. However, these people were indifferent. The Sun Family people had no hope of lobbying, and they just had to drop it.
Later, they couldn’t be blamed after thinking about it. These people were people from the lower levels. Perhaps after releasing them, they would be killed by their higher-ups before they could enjoy the meteoric success and rewards in the future.
What’s more, it wasn’t only just one or two people guarding here. Even if the door was opened and the Sun Family was released, they couldn’t be successful in rebelling against all the layers of defense outside.
Under such a strong position, who dared to act rashly?
“Little Jie, I put too much trust in Tian Long, which led to today’s situation.” Sun Hongjun sighed. “It has implicated you too… If I knew it sooner, I would have let you take care of all my business at home. Male or female, it doesn’t matter… I blame myself for being stubborn.”
“Dad, you don’t have to blame yourself. It isn’t related to you. Wasn’t I also deceived by Tian Long?” comforted Sun Jie. “Who could imagine that Tian Long would do something like this?”
“I also don’t know how Tian Long will deal with us afterward.” Sun Hongjun sighed and said, “Under these circumstances, how can I eat?”
Indeed, the Sun Family was now in a very passive moment, but they were unable to change the status quo, allowing others to trample on them freely.
“Miss… do you think Yang Ming will come to save us?” Sun San somehow suddenly thought of Yang Ming. As the elder of the Sun Family, Sun Hongjun naturally did not hide from him about Yang Ming’s affairs, so he still knew about Yang Ming’s ability.
Under the undue desperation, he suddenly thought of the relationship between Yang Ming and the Miss. If Yang Ming realized that the Miss was missing, he would definitely have doubts, then he would investigate Tian Long… Then…
Therefore, Sun San would suddenly have this question.
“Yang Ming?” Sun Jie had a slight surprise… Previously, she naturally thought of Yang Ming. Sun Jie was a strong girl; she was disdainful to the men around her. Only Yang Ming could only be accepted by her discerning eyes. However, in this case… Sun Jie really did not have that confidence to put her hope in Yang Ming!
Although Yang Ming had shown an unusually strong and calm side at most times, he was mostly a scatterbrain. It was true that Yang Ming was almighty in Song Jiang, but this was Donghai. Didn’t Tian Long have power? In a situation when he was evenly matched, Tian Long still occupied the geographical advantage, so Yang Ming’s chances of winning were really not much!
Thinking of this, Sun Jie shook her head helplessly. Yang Ming is still a little worse compared to my ideal boyfriend… It was not that Yang Ming was out of the question, but Yang Ming still needed a period of experience and growth. At least, now, Sun Jie felt that Yang Ming was not mature enough.
However, Sun Jie had not seen the current Yang Ming. After experiencing the baptism of life and death in Vietnam and Africa, Yang Ming quickly matured, allowing him to grasp and control things better. He had also become calmer and more decisive.
After going through Wang Zhitao’s matters, the previous Yang Ming would only do things that he was at least ten percent confident of. Although this could be guaranteed to be foolproof, in many cases, he could make no headway or even step back if he didn’t take any risks.
However, Yang Ming was much more open now. If you don’t make a bold choice in many cases, you can’t accomplish big things. It might even be much worse.
“Yeah, if Mr. Yang finds out that Miss, you are missing, he will definitely investigate!” said Sun San. “Miss, I think it’s possible!”
After Sun Hongjun heard Sun San’s words, his eyes suddenly lit up! Yeah, how did he forget Yang Ming? In fact, Yang Ming was a young man that he was highly optimistic about!
“Little Jie, think about it. There is still hope! With your relationship with Yang Ming, he will definitely call you. Once he realizes that he can’t reach you, he will definitely notice that something’s wrong!” Sun Hongjun nodded.
Sun Jie was a little dumbfounded. You all really think too highly of Yang Ming. Even if he realizes something is not right, he still can’t contend with Tian Long. In Donghai’s territory, do you think that Tian Long is a vegetarian?
Sun Jie even secretly did not want Yang Ming to be involved in this matter, because it was not a good thing for Yang Ming to get involved without the odds of success!
I don’t know why I am worried about Yang Ming. Sun Jie sighed slightly. At this time, she naturally couldn’t say anything demoralizing! Finally, her dad had hope, and his spirit was better. Sun Jie naturally had to cheer for him, so she said, “Yes, Yang Ming must have a solution! I believe he will be able to save us!”
“Who will save you?!” There was a gloomy and even disdainful voice outside the room.
“Tian Long?” Sun Hongjun was familiar with the voice. He frowned and snorted. “What are you doing here again?”
“I want to see how have you been. President Sun, Miss, and Sun San.” Tian Long smiled insincerely as he opened the door. Although the address was very respectful, the tone was without the slightest respect.
Standing behind Tian Long were four burly men, apparently Tian Long’s bodyguards. However, they were not so much as Tian Long’s bodyguards, but it was better to say that they were people who came to intimidate the Sun Family so that they wouldn’t take the opportunity to escape when the door was opened.
In fact, the people in the Sun Family also understood that they couldn’t escape even if they wanted to. People stood guard outside the door.
As for Tian Long’s sudden arrival, Sun Hongjun and Sun Jie were somewhat surprised. They didn’t know why he came at such a late hour.
Sun Hongjun snorted coldly. “You don’t have to be unctuous. I know clearly what you did. There is no need to talk about this.”
Tian Long snorted. “Do you think that Yang Ming can save you? It is already hard for him to protect himself. Would he still come and save you? It’s ridiculous!”
“What do you mean?” Sun Jie asked subconsciously. Unconsciously, Sun Jie suddenly realized that Yang Ming had already taken up a large portion of her heart. When she heard that Yang Ming was in danger, Sun Jie’s heart subconsciously became worried.
“If Yang Ming doesn’t come looking for me, I will look for him too.” Tian Long was not afraid to say more because the Sun Family people could only listen to it. They were placed under house arrest anyway, so they couldn’t do anything even if they wanted to.
Sun Jie licked her lips and couldn’t help but say, “If you are willing to die, I have no opinion.”
Tian Long smiled and completely treated Sun Jie’s words as a joke. He didn’t want to delay time with these people. Since he had already done it, he didn’t have to be like a prostitute claiming her chastity 1 . It didn’t make any sense.
Tian Long turned around and left the Sun Family’s room. He came here not to see the Sun Family, but to see Tian Donghua.
Tian Donghua was his own biological son. In the villa, Tian Long couldn’t calm down. He thought about why he fought for this foundation. Isn’t it for Tian Donghua?
However, he could not understand my pain. This made Tian Long very distressed. The passion before him suddenly disappeared, so he couldn’t stay any longer. He came to the old abandoned junkyard. He wanted to talk to Tian Donghua.
When Tian Donghua came to the garbage disposal site, Zhang Jinguo had just returned for ten minutes. Zhang Jinguo had just taken off his coat, and Tian Long came in!
Zhang Jinguo suddenly got scared until cold sweat came out! He couldn’t let Tian Long see the slightest clue. Zhang Jinguo was not stupid. At this time, he was not able to benefit from both sides. If he let Tian Long find out that he was already disloyal, then Tian Long would definitely not let him go. Even if Tian Long let him go, what about the voodoo in his body?
Fortunately, Tian Long didn’t notice anything. After coming in, he nodded to Zhang Jinguo and considered it as a greeting. He hurried to the room where the Sun Family was at.
Not long after, Tian Long brought someone out and walked to Tian Donghua’s room…
Yang Ming and Wang Renping arrived at Tian Long’s villa located in the suburbs at eleven o’clock sharp.
This was a village lot near Donghai. Because it was an illegal building, there was no formal certificate of origin. That is to say, one could not find out who the owner of the villa was from official channels.
For such a secret place, it seemed that Tian Long had put a lot of thought into it.
Because Yang Ming was not familiar with Donghai’s terrain, it was better to ask Wang Renping to drive. Anyway, Wang Renping was also an experienced person. Moreover, he did not dare to have any other ideas at this moment; Yang Ming could still trust him.
“It’s in front!” Wang Renping parked the car at an outdoor parking space in the neighborhood, then pointed to a luxury villa not far away.
Yang Ming nodded. Although this land had no property rights, the villas were all exceptionally luxurious. Perhaps the rich and powerful people did not take the certificate of origin seriously.
With Tian Long’s position in Donghai, whoever wanted to take down his house really had to consider whether they had this ability to or not.
In the villa, the lights were still on; it seemed that the people in the house had not yet rested.
Yang Ming needed to use his special ability to observe the movements in the villa first and then make a detailed action plan. Yang Ming also knew that sometimes it was not a good thing to rely too much on his special abilities, in case one day, these special abilities disappeared, or the Magical Lenses were taken back, and Yang Ming couldn’t rely on them anymore.
But in some cases, it couldn’t not be used. For example, if Yang Ming did not use his special abilities to observe the terrain but directly entered the villa, although there was an introduction by Wang Renping, the terrain was dead, but people were alive. No one can guarantee what the people inside were doing.
Therefore, only fifty percent of success could be achieved if he intruded beforehand, but now, it had become a hundred percent success rate!
“Mr. Yang, do you need me to go down first and make inquiries about the movement? I know the bodyguards outside.” Wang Renping saw that Yang Ming was not talking, but sitting there and wondering about something, so he volunteered and asked.
“No need.” Yang Ming waved his hand and sighed. “Tian Long is not here.”
After Wang Renping stopped the car, Yang Ming began to use his special ability to check the movement inside Tian Long’s villa. In the courtyard of the villa, two black-shirted bodyguards were patrolling, and there was a vigilant look in their eyes.
In the hall on the villa’s first floor, there were four identical black-shirted bodyguards, and they were also very vigilant. It seemed that Tian Long’s means of training people was very good.
Tian Long was not on the first floor of the villa. Looking at the second floor of the villa, Yang Ming scanned around and found four black-shirted bodyguards standing there, but there was still no Tian Long’s figure.
Looking at the villa’s attic, it was also empty. Yang Ming knew that Tian Long was not in the villa.
“Mr. Yang… Tian Long really lives here!” Wang Renping was shocked! Although he did not know how Yang Ming determined that Tian Long was not in the villa, if Tian Long was not here, then would Yang Ming think that Wang Renping lied to him?
“I didn’t say that he is not staying here, but he is not here now.” From the tight security of the villa, Tian Long should live here, but for some reason, he was not here for tonight.
When Wang Renping heard Yang Ming say this, he was relieved. He said, “Mr. Yang, are you sure that Tian Long is not here?”
“I know voodoo. Needless to say, there will be some things you don’t understand.” Yang Ming would not tell Wang Renping that he had special abilities but just gave a mysterious reason. “I have released a voodoo insect to scout it; Tian Long is not here.”
“Oh …” Wang Renping was shocked after listening to Yang Ming’s words, but he did not doubt it. Previously, when Yang Ming raised his hand and defeated Li Baihu and Ma Qiang, Wang Renping did not see clearly what method Yang Ming used.
Afterward, when he brought Li Baihu and Ma Qiang to the side room, he carefully examined the bodies of the two men but did not find anything similar to a wound…
After Yang Ming’s flying needle was injected into the body, it would dissolve in the blood immediately, so Wang Renping naturally did not see any clues. Wang Renping subconsciously believed that the two people were also poisoned by Yang Ming.
Isn’t that the voodoo that is shown on TV? The person who administers the voodoo raises his hand, and the voodoo insect will be launched toward and into the target’s body, and the target would be poisoned.
“It’s already so late. Where can Tian Long go?” Yang Ming was slightly disappointed. Taking action at night was much easier than during the day, but he did not expect Tian Long not to be in the villa.
However, Yang Ming couldn’t wait until tomorrow night to take action again. Now that time was of the essence, Yang Ming was worried about the safety of Sun Jie and Tian Donghua. He couldn’t wait any longer. Moreover, now that he instigated a rebellion among everyone around Tian Long, if these people showed flaws, then all his efforts would be lost, and it would be difficult to make a move on Tian Long.
Therefore, Yang Ming must settle Tian Long as soon as possible.
Wang Renping also frowned. “Normally, Tian Long would stay in this villa at night and would not go out. What if I go in and ask?”
Yang Ming sighed, and then nodded, Wang Renping was a trusted person of Tian Long, and it did not seem abrupt for him to appear at Tian Long’s villa at this hour. Those bodyguards would not doubt anything. Thinking of this, Yang Ming agreed to it.
Wang Renping pushed the door open and headed for the villa.
Just as he arrived at the villa door, the two guards who were responsible for guarding the place were vigilant, but when they saw Wang Renping, they were relieved. “Brother Wang, you are here!”
” En , I have nothing to do, so I came over to see if Brother Long has any commands,” said Wang Renping naturally.
“Brother Wang, unfortunately, Brother Long just went out not long ago!” said one of the black-shirted bodyguards. He didn’t need to hide from Wang Renping at all. In his opinion, Wang Renping was the most popular person around Tian Long. With just a phone call, Wang Renping could also ask about Brother Long’s whereabouts to show their attentiveness.
” Oh ? Went out? Where did he go?” asked Wang Renping casually.
“This… we don’t know. Brother Wang, you’ll have to call Brother Long personally to ask. We don’t dare to ask these things, nor can we know about these things.” The black-shirted bodyguards shrugged embarrassingly as they apologized.
” Hehe , it’s okay. Since it’s like this, I am leaving!” Wang Renping patted the shoulder of a black-shirted bodyguard. “You’ve all worked hard! I will talk to Brother Long and give you some bonuses!”
“Thank you, Brother Wang!” The black-shirted bodyguard hurriedly thanked him in gratitude.
The reason why Wang Renping said this was that he did not want these black-shirted bodyguards blabbing and telling Tian Long about him coming over. Although it was nothing, it was better to be careful.
In this way, he promised to talk to Tian Long about giving them a bonus. If they told Tian Long that he had come, then it would be like a bit of a reminder of the bonus; no one would be so stupid.
