Chapter 822: Continue to Follow Up
The last message was published by the employer. In agreement with the employer, the next issue of the magazine would indicate the place where Zheng Shaopeng would go that night so that the employed person would make a move at that time.
Although the magazine was printed a few days earlier, the release date was already set. For people like Zheng Shaopeng, the daily schedule should be fixed, and it was very likely that it was already arranged for a few days.
So it wasn’t a strange thing for the employer to know Zheng Shaopeng’s whereabouts in advance. At first, it was a matter that did not pertain to Yang Ming, but after Fang Tian explained it, it became a matter related to him.
Although Yang Ming didn’t admit that he was the son-in-law of the Butterfly Family, it was undeniable that the status of Fang Tian and himself in the world of assassins was closely related to the Butterfly Family.
Since this thing had become tricky and involved the Butterfly Family, Yang Ming naturally wanted to make it clear. The most critical issue now was the timing of the next issue of the magazine and who the two owners of the messages were.
For the identity of the owner who posted the information, Yang Ming did not have much hope. Since the person chose this method to hire assassins, that meant he wanted to hide his identity. How could such a person reveal his identity?
Yang Ming inquired about the address of the organizer of the DM magazine on the Internet. The magazine was hosted by a website called “Australian Street Shopping,” and the office address was a building that wasn’t far from there.
Yang Ming wrote down the address, then shut down the computer and left the hotel. Downstairs in the hotel, many taxis waited in line. Yang Ming took a taxi and went to the building where the website was located.
According to the recorded address, Yang Ming quickly found the office location of the website. The scale of the site seemed to be big. It occupied the entire floor of the building and was divided into multiple departments.
Yang Ming asked at the front desk and came to the DM magazine’s editorial department. Yang Ming was trying to contact the editorial department as a reader. The editorial department also set up a separate readers’ opinion exchange department. There was a specialized editor responsible for it.
This type of DM magazine which focused on advertising paid great attention to readers’ opinions because each reader might become a sponsor of the website. Therefore, Yang Ming did not have any trouble and got a good reception.
“Hi, Mr. Wang, welcome to the editorial department. Do you have any comments or suggestions for our magazine?” A gentle editor welcomed Yang Ming. Of course, Yang Ming did not use his real name here. Instead, he casually wrote “Mr. Wang.”
“This is the case. I have read several issues of your magazine, but I found a strange message in each issue…” Yang Ming picked up a magazine on the coffee table as he spoke. He turned to the page with the code and pointed it out to the editor.
” Oh ? It’s this…” The editor had a helpless smile. “About this, many readers have called and asked, but you are the first one who came here… I’m really sorry to cause trouble for your reading…”
Yang Ming waved his hand and said, “It’s no trouble at all. I am just curious. I want to know what exactly was published.”
“Actually, I don’t know this.” The editor said, embarrassed, “Some of our magazine’s advertising columns are mobile and are available to some people who need short-term advertising. This advertisement was requested by someone. Although we don’t know what it means, since someone had already paid the advertising fee, we can’t also refuse it because it did not violate the law.”
“Who is the person who published it? I am a more curious person. I want to find the owner of the publication to ask what it is about…” Yang Ming tried to make himself look harmless.
” Hehe , the other party did not leave any contact information, nor do I know his specific identity. The advertising fee and advertising content of each issue were sent by letter.” The editor smiled apologetically. “You are not the first reader who asked this. Many curious readers want to get to the bottom of the question. However, it may be that some people deliberately wanted to fool the public…”
“So that is the case…” Yang Ming nodded. As expected, these people would not show up. “Yes, I wanted to ask this. Is the message in each issue published by the same person?”
“I don’t know this…” The editor shook his head, “We don’t understand what these messages mean. How would we know whether it is the same person who publishes it? But one period was very strange. There were two of the same publication requirements at once. Maybe some readers wanted to go along with the prank…”
“It’s possible…” Yang Ming pretended to be disappointed. He sighed, stood up and said, “Never mind then. Since there is nothing, then I’m leaving…”
“Mr. Wang, farewell. You are welcome to come here again to give us your feedback…” The editor also got up to send him off.
“Right, when will the next issue be released?” Yang Ming pretended to be very casual and asked suddenly.
“The day after tomorrow, hehe. Mr. Wang, you can leave your address. I will send someone to deliver it to you.” The editor didn’t need to hide these things. But if Yang Ming asked this when he went there, it would be too awkward.
“No need. My coffee shop downstairs has it.” Yang Ming waved and left the editorial department.
The most important message he got this time was that the next issue of the magazine would be released the day after tomorrow. That was to say, the day after tomorrow was the day of the assassination of Zheng Shaopeng. By that time, Yang Ming could go to the place where Zheng Shaopeng was going, and wait there in advance. Maybe he could find some clues. At the very least, Yang Ming could intercept the assassin who wanted to kill Zheng Shaopeng to see who he was.
Outside the door of the building, Yang Ming called Fang Tian and reported the information to him.
“I have also contacted the Butterfly Family. This task does not seem to be taken up by the people of the Butterfly Family, but you should follow up.” Fang Tian said, “This is a chance for you to gain some experience. Feel free to contact me at any time if there is any situation.”
“Okay.” Yang Ming nodded. “I will go to the place where Zheng Shaopeng will appear the day after tomorrow and find some ways to figure out the situation.”
Since it had nothing to do with the Butterfly Family, Yang Ming had let go of his worries. He just had to wait and see.
At this time, Zhang Bing also called, “Bro, I’m done at my side. Where are you?”
“I am going back to the hotel. You should come back and clean up also. The concert is about to begin.” Yang Ming looked at the time on the phone.
“Okay, see you later.” Zhang Bing hung up.
At 7:00 p.m., the first concert of the second stop of Shu Ya’s national tour at the Macau Complex kicked off. The scene here was obviously much more magnificent than the concert held in the Song Jiang Stadium.
After all, Song Jiang was only a second-tier city. Naturally, it didn’t have complete facilities and ample space like Macau, an international city.
The hotel’s VIP tickets were obtained from the scalper’s party. Although the price was high, it was indeed a good location. Although it wasn’t the first row, it was quite close to the front. It was in the middle of the second row, so it was worth the money.
Zhang Bing’s seat was next to Yang Ming. Zhang Bing wasn’t a very fanatical fan. Although he liked Shu Ya very much, it was impossible for him to take the flight to Macau to catch up with the concert.
Zhang Bing didn’t understand Yang Ming’s behavior. “Bro, I didn’t think you were that kind of groupie.”
” Hehe , is it strange?” Yang Ming shrugged. In fact, if he didn’t know that Shu Ya was Su Ya, Yang Ming wouldn’t do such crazy things.
“It is a bit strange.” Zhang Bing shook his head. “Bro, don’t you know that it is okay to like a celebrity, but if you are too addicted, it won’t be good? After all, we can’t have any intersection with them.”
“You are right. I am here… to pursue Shu Ya…” Yang Ming whispered in Zhang Bing’s ears.
“Pursue… Huh ?” Zhang Bing was astounded. He looked at Yang Ming surprisingly, “Bro, are you kidding?”
Yang Ming touched the ring in his pocket and smiled at Zhang Bing, “Of course not, I am serious.”
“Are you sure?” Zhang Bing was still unbelievable. Although there were often news stories of rich young masters pursuing celebrities on the Internet, and Yang Ming was now considered a rich young master, Zhang Bing still felt that these things were far away from him.
“You will have a celebrity sister-in-law soon.” Yang Ming patted Zhang Bing’s shoulder and smiled mysteriously.
Zhang Bing was confused by Yang Ming, but the strength of Yang Ming picking up girls was still very impressive. At that time, Chen Mengyan was a campus belle, yet Yang Ming could easily get her, and then Lan Ling and Lin Zhiyun also are beauties among the beautiful women…
There was still time before the concert started. Zhang Bing began to talk about his one-night stand and how horny that woman was. Yang Ming was speechless hearing that. “You know that I don’t fancy these…”
“Why don’t you try it? This feeling is really good. You don’t have to take responsibility for the woman, and there’s no psychological burden.” Zhang Bing suggested.
Yeah… Don’t have to take responsibility…? Yang Ming shook his head, but he really couldn’t do it. He thought that Sun Jie would be the target of a one-night stand, but now…
The lighting of the venue gradually darkened. The concert was about to start…
