Unexpected Second Chance At Love Book 1 Chapter 311
The long night began to whisper in the air as the heavens above continue to weep. The trickling sound came to the ears of those awake like music and a lullaby to those asleep. However, as the people of Imperial immerse into their own world, they heed no attention to the situation happening at Jade Condos.
"Boss, are you sure?"
Inside the pitch-black penthouse, Lin Hui spoke as he abruptly stood from the while couch. He stares at the figure standing in front of the floor to ceiling window. He does not make another sound but wait in silence.
Yue Ling stares out the window for a long minute before turning around.
Although the place no longer held any lights, her eyes quickly adjusted to the darkness. She looks at Lin Hui and nod her head.
"They'll be here soon."
In the dark, Lin Hui clench his fists tightly. He thought about the strange phone call and was able to connect the dots. Both his arms raise and reach towards his back as his hands slide under his leather jacket. He pulls out a Beretta 95 and a silencer.
As he adjusts the silencer on the tip of the pistol, he looks at his boss.
"I'll handle this side."
Saying this, he jumps over the couch and moves to the door. His movements were swift and quiet that it makes one think he was floating on air. He leans his back against the wall and held his gun into position.
If those 'guests' open the door, it will cover him and block their view seeing him.
Yue Ling did not move away from the window. The look on her face was her usual calm temperament, but her head turned towards the door.
Her eyes slowly flutter, and she turns her head to the other side.
Inu, who had been deeply asleep was now sitting up on his comfortable bed. In his sleep, he had sense something was not right and awoke, however, he was met with the darkness that engulfed the entire place.
Yue Ling looks away from the little guy and walks out of the living room.
Her voice trails in an almost whisper, but Inu's ears perk in understanding. He swiftly jumps out of bed and follows in pursuit. However, despite his fluffy and adorable looks, his entire demeanor changed as his eyes scanned the place in full alert.
Walking pass the kitchen and through the hallway, Yue Ling heads for bedrooms. Her feet stop and she stood in front of two doors. One in front of her and one to her right.
The door in front was her and Lu Tian's bedroom that had been left open, but only darkness greeted her like the rest of the place. She turns away and opens the door on her right as she steps into her closet room.
Even without the light, she knew where everything was placed. Her calm movements quickly approach one of the shelves housing her many shoes.
Staring down at what looks to be a pair of knee-length boots, she reaches her hand inside one of them. Her finger curls around something cold and solid as she pulls her hand back out. What follows is a black PIG Sauer P226.
She pulls the slide back to eject the empty cartridge and turns away from the show shelf. Taking a few steps towards the door, her hand gently brushes over the top of her makeup vanity before sliding under to grab an item.
Without stopping in her steps, she walks out of the room and adjust the silencer on her gun.
As her figure leaves the room, she stood in the hallway and turn her head to look at the pitch-black living room.
Her right hand grips the gun as she lifts her left hand and place it on her abdomen. She closes her eyes and takes a deep breath.
'Baby…. Stay with mommy. I will never let anything happen to you. I promise.'
When her eyes opened again, every ounce of emotion is ripped away. The only thing that can be seen in her bluish green eyes is a dark pool of death.
She looks away from the living room and walks into the dark bedroom she and Lu Tian shares. Following her every move, Inu also moves in.
At the same time in City Z, Lu Tian did not return to his private house after leaving Red Night. He did not waste anymore time and gets into his private jet to go home to his wife and unborn child.
He sat in the aircraft seat and leaned against it with his eyes closed.
When Xu Long sent the location of Chu Qiang and Silver's meet, he also mentioned that Chu Li Xiang did not go after the Lu family, instead, he had sent his men after Yue Ling.
He knew that Chu Li Xiang was planning something against him, but he didn't think the man would use his departure from Imperial to kidnap his wife.
Thinking this, Lu Tian's eyes slowly open and he sat up. He unlocks his phone and stares down at the photo of his sleeping wife. His fingers tighten around the phone and murmur quietly to himself.
"Please be safe…"
*Pu Pu Pu*
At the same time back in Imperial, Xu Long and Wolf Team takes out three men wearing masks. They had advance inside Jade Condos and were on the stairs inside the stairwell exit. Due to the enemy cutting out the power outage of the elevator and Yue Ling's penthouse, they could only proceed by stairs.
["Assistant Xu, 10. 3, 8; 2, 12; 1, 14; 8, target."]
On the roof of another building, a member of Wolf Team spoke into his earpiece as he calls the locations. He is a sniper on standby, but he laid in position as his stares into a thermal binocular towards Jade Condos.
"Got it. Keep look."
Xu Long answers the sniper and adjust the night vision device attached to his head. He looks at the men following behind him and signals with two fingers.
"Four teams. Clear each assigned floor."
As they continue to commence up the flight of stairs, each team slowly steps out of formation on certain floor levels and hunt for the mask men.
["3, 8 down."]
["2, 12 down."]
["1, 14 down."]
Quickly as the team enter each floor level, the sound of gunshots quietly fire as they take down the mask men in sight.
["Assistant Xu, four closing in on target. Another four reaching outside."]
Hearing the sniper's words, Xu Long swear inside and quicken his pace up the stairs with the rest of Wolf Team. They were already on the fourteenth floor, but he knows that by the time they get to the fifteenth floor, the enemy would already have reached inside.
No. No matter what happens, he will make sure the lady boss is safe!
While Xu Long and Wolf Team continue the flight of stairs, Yue Ling stood in the middle of the dark room.
Despite them living on the highest floor of Jade Condos, there is still two entrance into the penthouse. With the help of her eyes adjusting to the darkness, she scans the room and see that no one had entered.
However, her intuition about two entrances was correct. Her head slight move as her ears pick up the sound of movements faint shuffling.
Outside on the balcony, four figures climb over the glass rail and quietly land on the floor. One of the men signals to the other two to keep watch and slowly walks toward the door with another man following behind.
Yue Ling hears their footsteps and calmly walks to the darkest part of the room. She turns around to look at Inu and takes a step back into the darkness. She part her lip to whispers a word before her figure immerse into the shadow.
Her voice was quiet and unheard as her word was foreign to the ears, but Inu understood more than anyone. He swiftly runs towards the king-sized bed and jumps onto it. His fluffy body quickly maneuvers under the blanket.
In that very moment, the balcony door unlocks from the outside and the glass door slowly push open.
A man wearing all black with a mask quietly enters the room. His arm stretches forward as he held his gun out ready to shoot. Quickly as the man entered, another figure wearing the same attire enters behind.
The first man squints his eyes and looks around the room, but because his eyes had not yet adjusted to the darkness, it was difficult to see. Just when his head turn to the right, he hears a faint shuffle.
The corner of his lip curl into a sneer and he gestures with his hand to the man behind him. The second man follows the gesture and looks at the bed. They could make out what seemed like the outline of a person under the blanket.
Both men smirk as they have have found their target and moves toward the bed.
Just when both men took a step forward, they froze in place as the figure under the blanket suddenly moves.
Each person held in their breath and wait, but after a few seconds, the figure stops moving and both men silently sigh in relief.
Their boss had ordered them to kidnap Lu Tian's woman for ransom. He also said to shoot the woman but not to the point of killing her.
When they arrived at the location, they had cut the power source to specific areas of the building to not make anything suspicious. However, they didn't expect to come across Lu Tian's notorious team.
Good thing they had a back up plan and luckily for them, the target was sleeping, which makes everything easier for them.
The man who entered first slowly walks closer to the bed and lower his hand. He quietly presses the tip of his gun on the blanket at what he can makeout to be the woman's leg.
An evil grin curl on his lip and he couldn't wait to hear the woman scream in pain. Without hesitating, he pulls the trigger.
