"Did you locate her?" Zhuo Jingren said as he paced inside the room. "The gps in her necklace should be on. What's taking you so long?" He gritted his teeth as he watched the multiple flashing screen in front of him.
"Boss, she is somewhere Kowloon Street. My guess is underground." One gentleman facing the computer answered, his gaze was glued to the monitor as he waited for Zhuo Jingren to say something.
"Send us the location once you found it. I need twenty people." Zhuo Jingren said as he eyed Bei Tian next to him. "Lets go," He then walked out of the room and proceeded to walk towards his car with Bei Tian in tow.
"You are still bleeding." Bei Tian said. His voice grim. He pursed his lips and started to drive the car.
"This won't kill me." Zhuo Jingren said. "It's been four hours. She's been away for four hours. Have you sent people to guard the Qins and the Xuans?"
Bei Tian nodded. He had been afraid that something like this would happen. He had been afraid that the old Zhuo Jingren would show himself and he won't be able to stop him this time.
"Kill them after six hours if Lily is still missing by then." Zhuo Jingren said. Once again, Bei Tian nodded. He wanted to object, tell him that there is a possibility that they did not take Lily. They dont have the courage nor the resources to do that. But he ended up closing his mouth. The Qins and the Xuans deserve it anyway, he thought. The only thing that he is worrying right now is Zhuo Jingren involving other people- innocent ones.
"Send someone to check out Lin Yu Yan and someone to inquire about the Isaac Lee's whereabouts as well as his adopted son. Send some people to Singapore as soon as possible. If that old man dared to hurt, Lily…" Zhuo Jingren did not continue his words, he gritted his teeth and his face darken even more. The thought of Lily being hurt because of him is a lot for him to take.
"Hmmm… I already did. We can't miss anything." Bei Tian agreed. This was not the first time that this scene happened. Zhuo Jingren ordering him to follow people, spy on families and kill their enemies, was not the first and certainly would not be the last when it comes to Lily. "Don't worry too much. Lily may not look like it, but Yang Mi said that she knows how to use knives. At least she could defend herself."
The atmosphere of the car instantly turned colder after Bei Tian uttered those words. Realizing his mistake, he shut his mouth and decided to focus on driving instead.
After a few minutes, they received a text message about the location of the necklace that Zhuo Jingren gave Lily. It was in a Casino in Kowloon. Their best bet was that they held her underground. It did not take long for Zhuo Jingren and Bei Tian to arrive at the said Casino.
Suprisingly, the Casino was close. "What if this is a trap?" Bei Tian asked, he eyed Zhuo Jingren who just finished putting on a bullet-proof vest. He wanted to at least make his friend think logically. At this point, Bei Tian knows that there is nothing that would stop Zhuo Jingren from going into the Casino. This was the thing that he was so worried about. Zhuo Jingren losing the ability to process things once something happens to Lily.
Just as he expected, Zhuo Jingren said nothing as he signaled their men to hurry. Bei Tian only shook his head before he look at the time. It was almost 2 in the morning. He eyed the barren parking lot of the Casino and fell into deep thought. This is the perfect place to target Zhuo Jingren and yet, the latter does not seem to care about this. All reasoning seemed to fly out of Zhuo Jingren's brain when it comes to Lily.
"If something happens to you and Lily came back alive. What do you think will she feel?" His words instantly made Zhuo Jingren froze. "Do you think she will celebrate and not feel guilty that you rushed into a building without even considering that fact that they were targeting you? That they were using her as bait?"
"This was different than seven years ago. This time she knows your existence. She loves you and is with you. Why are you acting like you were when she disappeared seven years ago? Are you out of your mind?" Bei Tian added. "Do you like to hurt her? Break her heart once she comes back and you are dead?"
Seeing Zhuo Jingren froze and just stared at the building in a daze, Bei Tian commanded their men to check out the area first. "You can go there once we are certain that there is no bomb or an army waiting for you to march inside." Bei Tian said as he eyed Zhuo Jingren. He then let out a sigh of relief when he saw his friend nod.
"You stopped me." Zhuo Jingren said, the lines in between his brows were apparent. He looked at Bei Tian who was standing next to him before he shoved his hands towards his pockets and eyed the group of men that were trying to enter the Casino.
"It's my job to stop you from doing crazy things." Bei Tian said.
"But you like her."
"What is not to like? Isn't she everyone's dream woman?" Bei Tian chuckled as he lowered his head. Of course, he was not surprised that Zhuo Jingren knew that he had actually taken a liking to Lily. "Liking her does not mean that I should let you die and break her heart."
"Me dying would mean that you would have a chance to at least woo her."
"Is this what's troubling you this past few weeks?" Bei Tian lifted an eyebrow. "My feelings towards her is like my feeling towards the stars. I like them both. But I know that I could never have them. I am not as dumb as you think."
"And you are not just a friend. You are a brother. We were born from the same family. We are related by blood and grew up together. Did you really think that I would just waltz in and snatch your woman because I am slightly more good-looking than you? Man… I am not that low."
