Unexpected Second Chance At Love Book 1 Chapter 310
While the situation in City Z turn intense, the grey sky in Imperial also darkened. Raindrops slowly trinkle as they lightly sprinkle against the windows of Jade Condos penthouse 1503.
Inside the living room, Lin Hui laid on his back lazily on one of the white couches. He caresses his bloated stomach and grin with a satisfaction face. He is the happiest when full. It's the soul reason why he cannot break up with food.
Yue Ling stare at the man and she couldn't decide whether to laugh or cry. Sometimes, she also can't help but wonder why the people around her are out of this world.
Seeing how comfortable he is, she sighs inside and shook her head. Lin Hui had clearly made himself at home.
"Lin Hui, it's going to start pouring soon. When are you leaving?"
Oblivious to his boss's view on him, Lin Hui close his eyes and continue to casually stroke his stomach with a smile.
"Aiya boss, let me rest for a bit. I ate too much and I drove my bike here so I'll speed home before it pours heavily. Besides, I need to…."
Suddenly, his eyes shot open and he abruptly sat up.
"B-Boss! I-I suddenly remember something!"
Yue stare at him with a dumbfounded expression. Lin Hui, who sat up quickly was struggling with difficulty, however, she suppresses the urge to laugh and clears her throat.
"Ahem. What is it?"
Lin Hui realize that she had seen him struggle and he blush in embarrassment. Of all people in the world, it had to her who saw him. He takes a deep breath and brush the embarrassing scene away.
"Early this morning, I received a strange call. This person called so early that when I looked out the window, it was still dark outside."
He touches his chin and his words continue.
"The strange thing was, this man asked me to keep a look out."
His head slightly tilt to the side and he sigh.
"When I asked what I was supposed to be keeping a look out for, he hung up on me. I tried to track the call, but I was led into a dead end."
Yue Ling quietly listen and nod her head from start to end. She finds it strange that someone would call Lin Hui. Who made the call that even he could not trace?
Keep a look out… A look out for what?
While Yue Ling and Lin Hui continue their conversation about the subject, they were unaware of the situation right outside.
Surrounding the entire premises of Jade Condos, men in black tactical gears hid in the dark. The sound of fists hiting and silent gunshots can faintly be heard as they take out their opponents.
A man in black tactical gear held the head of a man wearing a mask. With a strong twist, he quickly and swiftly kills the man. Letting the body fall to the ground, the man in black tactical gear lift his hand and touch his earpiece.
"Assistant Xu, South is clear."
On the other side of Jade Condos, Xu Long flips a mask man. Before the person could move or make a sound, he sends a bullet to man's head. He stood over the man and stare with an expressionless face. Unlike his usual suit attire, he had changed into the same tactical gear as Wolf Team.
When he heard the other person called clear, he touches his earpiece.
"North and West are clear. What about East?"
Speaking into the earpiece, he looks at the many bodies on the ground and sneer.
"Ah, that bastard really thinks he can win against us?"
["Assistant Xu! It's a setup! These men were a decoy to distract us! *pu*"]
Xu Long's eyes widen when he heard the words. He can hear gunshots through the earpiece and raises his head to look at Jade Condos.
High in the dark sky, one can see dark outlines climbing the walls with the help of ropes.
"Shit-! Those mother fuckers."
Xu Long clench his fists tightly and curse without caring about his assistant image. Those figures climbing are closing in on the highest floor.
["Assistant Xu, we can shoot them down. I have a clear shot on the East side."]
["South has a clear view too!"]
The rest of Wolf Team quickly spoke into their earpieces with their guns pointing up at the figures. They had also seen what Xu Long saw. If they don't take down the enemy, the enemy will reach the target after climbing four floors.
Xu Long's eyes dimmed dangerously. Shooting those bastards isn't a bad idea, but…
He touches his earpiece and grit his teeth.
"Don't shoot. There are too many civilians. Team C commence inside. Team B, keep watch for anymore suspects. Snipers get into position."
Xu Long gives order and ran towards Jade Condoes as if his life depended on it.
Taking down the men climbing the wall would have been an easy way out, but they were train to never fire in front of civilians. It was a rule set by Lu Tian.
His boss ordered him to protect the lady boss. If any mishap were to happen, he will never forgive himself.
Taking out his phone, he quickly dials a number and calls a person.
"Come on, pick up. Pick up, pick up…"
Inside a room of Red Night, the once lively room is now an intense scene.
Suddenly, the ringtone of a phone surface as it becomes the only sound inside the room, however, no one dear to make a move.
Chu Qiang and Silver were in utter disbelief at how the situation had turned into a battlefield. A bead of cold sweat slowly trials down both their faces. Any small movement and they swore Jiangyu will not hesitate to pull the trigger on both guns.
Unlike the two middle age men, Lu Tian seemed to not care at all. Even with the many guns pointed in his direction, his reaction is unmoving like he is sitting at home and drinking tea.
However, the ringtone of someone's phone continues to ring without stopping.
"Black Dragon! Cease your weapons!"
"Red Nigh! Drop your guns!"
Both men quickly roar in burning rage until their face turned red and veins appear on their foreheads.
Did their subordinates think that shooting Lu Tian will save them? Can't these useless men see that they are being held at gunpoint?!
At the same time, Lu Tian turns a blind eye to the situation happening. He calmly reaches into his coat pocket and takes out his phone. Answering it, he puts the phone near his ear.
The person from the other lines starts speaking, but no one in the room can hear a single word except for Lu Tian.
Seeing Lu Tian so calm, the men of Black Dragon and Red Night couldn't help but shiver. However, following their boss's order, they slowly lower their weapons.
Silver sighs in relief, but he was still scared. Even though his and Chu Qiang's men have lower their weapons, Jiangyu still held them at gunpoint. His mouth dried and he force a smile while slightly waving his hands.
"Heh. Mr. Buff, my men have already put their guns away, why don't you do the same? Hm?"
Jiangyu arch his brows and his eyes scans the room. His head nod in understanding, but his arms stayed in place.
"Aye, you are correct. Your men have ceased their weapons."
Saying this, he looks at Silver and grin with his teeth.
"However, I only take orders from my boss."
The two guns in his hands remained unmoving as if he was statue. Even if the other team had surrender, he will only give way when his boss says so.
Lu Tian's deep voice sounds from behind. He had already finished his call and stood up.
Yiqing, who was quietly standing beside Lu Tian, slowly motion with his figures. If one looked clearly, they can see a flicker of lights reflected from the tiny silver needles as they disappear.
At the same time, Jiangyu hears his name and he lower his arms. Looking at both of the terrified middle age men, he cast them a smile.
"I do apologize if I scared you both."
Taking a few steps back, he returns to his boss's side.
Lu Tian's dark eyes glance at Silver then to Chu Qiang.
"Chu Qiang, if a strand of my wife's hair is touched, we will meet again."
His tone was ice-cold. From top to bottom, his entire body emitted a chilling vibe, yet there wasn't any expression on his distinct face. However, Chu Qiang and Silver have met Lu Tian a few times and knew the latter was on the edge or erupting in rage after the phone call.
Lu Tian does not say anymore and turns to leave with Jiangyu and Yiqing.
Until Lu Tian's tall figure was not longer in sight and the double door closed, Silver was finally able to breathe again. He slumps in his chair and glares at his men.
"Useless! When did I order for you guys to draw your guns?!"
"Master Silver…. We thought you were in danger…"
One of his Red Night men murmur at the side.
"Shut up! What danger?! It was all of you trash that put me in danger!! You are all lucky that Mr. Lu showed mercy!"
Silver roared and slam his fist on the table. His breathing turned rapid as he ignores his men and shoots Chu Qiang a glare.
"Is this how you treat my Red Night? You think Lu Tian will let this slide? Is that brother of yours trying to get the both of us killed!"
Chu Qiang pays no attention to Silver's words. The him at this moment is panic-stricken by Lu Tian's words. As the man's words repeat in his head, his eyes slowly widen, and his entire body froze.
Lu Tian's wife…. Mami…
"Fuck! That useless brother!!!"
While City Z's Red Night turned into chaos, Yue Ling and Lin Hui maintained their conversation in Imperial.
Lin Hui sigh and he pout his mouth.
"Boss, what do you think that person wanted? Was he referring to the upcoming fashion show or Doctor Xie's case? Should we have Liu Shan look into this?"
Just when his last word fell, the lights inside the penthouse flickers and darkness quickly engulf them.
"Eh? Why did the power go out?"
Lin Hui question the sudden situation while Yue Ling calmly stood and walks over to the floor to ceiling windows. She glances down and can see the shadow lights emitting from the floors below.
From behind, Lin Hui furrow his brows and scratch his head in awkwardness.
"Boss, your place is really fancy and all, but it lacks power outage."
Yue Ling does not answer him and stares down at the window. The settled rain had suddenly turned heavy, but she can make out a group of dark figures moving in the shadows.
Watching the dark figures move, she finally understood the meaning of the strange call Lin Hui received.
She stares out the window for a long minute before her lip part and her voice sounds.
"We have guests."
