Ming Shu stretched and smiled. “Is the supper ready? I’m so hungry!”
Jiang Duo saw that Ming Shu was perfectly fine and didn’t know what to say. “Very soon.”
Ming Shu finished the supper and returned to her room. She never came out after that.
Jiang Duo looked at the closed door and felt a bit worried.
How did Qin Che get kidnap? Xiao Li…
Jiang Duo sat on the sofa and let her imagination run wild. The rain got heavier. The splattering sounds felt as though they were hitting right into people’s hearts.
Jiang Duo immediately looked up and saw the shadow against the door.
“You’re not asleep yet?” Ming Shu said casually, “Rest early.”
“Xiao Li… are you going out?” Ming Shu looked at the fully dressed Ming Shu.
“Yes.” Ming Shu gave a light smile. “I want to eat custard buns tomorrow. Remember to make more.”
Jiang Duo was stunned for a while. Her heart started to feel anxious without any warning. She wanted to stop her, but no words would come out of her mouth.
She had lived with Xiao Li for so long. When she decided on something, she would do it even if she promised that she wouldn’t. No one could stop her.
She agreed after a while. “Okay.”
After that, she added, “I’ll wait for you to come back.”
Ming Shu gave a gentle smile. The light fell on her eyes. Gentleness seemed to seep out from them.
Ming Shu picked up an umbrella. Jiang Duo sent her to the door and watched as she climbed down the stairs and walked out of the building, disappearing into the rain with the umbrella.
Jiang Duo grabbed the rusty rails and asked herself, “Are you going to find him?”
The scenery outside flashed past, forming unique images through the rain and lights. There were only a few cars on the road. The whole city seemed to be engulfed in the heavy rain.
The girl sitting in the backseat came to attention and pa.s.sed the driver his money.
“Little girl, this is such a desolate area and it’s so late at night. Please be careful,” the driver reminded her as he looked for change.
“Thank you. Keep the change.” The girl opened the door and got off the car. Her voice was gentle as she said, “Thanks for sending me to a distant location”
The driver’s response was locked in the car as the girl opened the umbrella and casually walked toward a building not far away.
The rain splattered onto the umbrella and formed a rhythm in the rainy night.
Ming Shu stepped on the dirty, muddy ground and got closer to the building one step at a time.
In the building…
He Shuguo placed his hands behind his back and walked back and forth. In the end, he stopped in front of the man that was tied up. “Qin Che, what is the point of holding on for so long?”
Qin Che’s mouth was taped shut and he couldn’t say anything.
He Shuguo tore off the tape covering his mouth.
Qin Che sneered and looked at him mockingly. He didn’t say anything.
He Shuguo exchanged glances with Qin Che for a few seconds and shifted his gaze away. “Since you’re my nephew, I will send you overseas once you sign your name. You will not have to worry about your living expenses at all. How about that?”
Qin Che didn’t reply. He just stared at He Shuguo.
“Don’t make me lose my patience.” He Shuguo was a bit angry. “Who can save you now? Your men are all far away and the rest of the people here are all under me. Are you counting on the police?”
If Qin Che didn’t force him so much, he would not take this step.
“Mister He, long time no see. How are you?”
A girl’s clear voice sounded from afar.
Qin Che’s eyes widened. Why is she here?
The girl smiled and walked out from the shadows. She was holding an umbrella and it was dripping water from its tip. As she walked, the formed a zigzag pattern on the floor.
Qin Che looked at Ming Shu as she came closer and finally reacted. He shouted in a deep voice, “This has nothing to do with her! Let her go.”
“Oh, you finally bother to talk?” He Shuguo was shocked. “Seems like my non-blood-related niece is very important to you.”
“He Shuguo, if you dare touch her, I will make you regret it.” Qin Che got serious.

“Hahahaha… interesting.” He Shuguo clapped and laughed.
Shen Yuanzhao raised his hand.
Several men in black came out of the shadows and pointed their guns at Ming Shu.
The umbrella was still spinning.
Around and around…
Ming Shu smiled slightly. “Seems like Boss Shen is the one that wants my life.”
Shen Yuanzhao frowned and glanced sideways at He Shuguo. “Mister He, it’s up to you now.”
He Shuguo was thinking about something. He only turned his head when Shen Yuanzhao called him a second time. He said with a cold expression, “Qin Che, if you don’t agree, I will have to ask Miss Ruan to wait for you downstairs.”
Shen Yuanzhao wanted Ming Shu’s life. This was his condition for working together.
Even if Qin Che agreed to He Shuguo’s request, Ming Shu would not meet with a good ending.
He Shuguo understood this, but he was caught in a dilemma. If the girl couldn’t be saved…
It wouldn’t be his fault.
Qin Che mouth formed a sneer and looked at the girl spinning her umbrella calmly within the crowd. He asked seriously, “Who are you here for?”
The umbrella stopped spinning and a slim hand grabbed its handle.
The girl slowly smiled. “Of course it’s for me.”
Things happened so fast that He Shuguo and Shen Yuanzhao didn’t have any time to react.
The minute Ming Shu finished her sentence, she attacked. The tip of the umbrella suddenly became sharp and it accurately pierced into the shoulder of the nearest target.
It echoed through the empty building.
Qin Che’s view was filled with blood. Before he could react to that answer, Ming Shu’s body had already fallen slowly down.
