Fierce Ex-wife: President, Please Be Careful-Chapter 864 - : The Mastermind (2)
Chapter 864: The Mastermind (2)
Mu Tingfeng understood Zhao Youlin’s concerns and said, “If something does happen to you, the Mu family will not sit by and do nothing, and neither will the Su family.”
What he meant was that if something did happen to Zhao Youlin, as the daughter-in-law of the Mu family, the Mu family would not sit by and do nothing. Even if the Mu family was no match for Lu Xiangtian, Su Ruixin would definitely go to the Su family for help.
Even if they made a move for the sake of Su He and Su Ruixin, the Su family would definitely not be able to escape from this mess. The result would still be the same.
Zhao Youlin was stunned. After she came back to her senses, she lowered her head and thought about it for a while. She then nodded her head in compromise and said, “If that’s the case, I’m afraid we’ll have to trouble the old and the weary.”
“Okay, I’ll talk to him,” Mu Tingfeng said as he turned around and leaned closer to Zhao Youlin. He kissed her on the forehead and said in a low voice, “Don’t worry. I’ll take care of everything.”
Zhao Youlin was stunned for a moment. She looked at the expressionless face in front of her, staring at her intently. She subconsciously reached out and held his hand. “Okay.”
At that moment, Zhao Youlin did not know that because of the accident earlier, or perhaps because of her, the relationship between the two people she wanted to investigate had taken another change.
Lu Xiangtian was always swift and decisive in doing things, and in order to keep up with him, his subordinates naturally had to be faster than the average worker.
The very night after the attack, the middle-aged man who went with Lu Xiangtian to find Zhao Youlin returned, having interrogated the attackers.
“The master, we got it. The target of those people was… Ms. Zhao.”
“Ms. Zhao?” Lu Xiangtian raised his eyebrows. The danger in his eyes didn’t disappear much because of the words of the people beside him. “What’s the grudge between them and Ms. Zhao? Why did they go after Ms. Zhao? Who asked them to do this?”
“This…” the man’s face changed slightly, and he looked at Lu Xiangtian with hesitation and fear.
“Hmm?” Lu Xiangtian raised his eyebrows, and a powerful pressure rushed at the man in front of him, making him almost go limp on the spot.
“They said that… it was the eldest lady who asked them to do this.”
“Shu’er?” Lu Xiangtian had not expected this answer. “Shu’er wants to kill Ms. Zhao?”
“It’s what they said.”
Lu Xiangtian did not say anything. His face was extremely gloomy, making the man tremble in fear. Cold sweat dripped down his forehead one drop at a time, fearing that he would become cannon fodder for the man in front of him to vent his anger.
After a long while, Lu Xiangtian finally spoke. “Get someone to investigate this matter. Also, ask Shu’er to come over tomorrow. I will have a word with her.”
The man hurriedly agreed and left as if he was running away.
The Lu family’s butler stood not far from Lu Xiangtian to serve him. After hearing the conversation between the two of them, he had basically understood the ins and outs of the matter. He could not help but ask, “Master, Miss and that Ms. Zhao…”
Lu Xiangtian took a deep breath. His deep eyes darkened. After a long silence, he slowly said, “We’ll find out when we ask her tomorrow.”
The old Butler shut his mouth and did not say anything else. However, there was an inquisitive look in his eyes.
However, he also knew that there were some things that he could not manage. Although he was curious why Lu Shu was so afraid of Ms. Zhao that she found it necessary to take her life, he had no choice but to suppress it.
Lu Xiangtian had already sent people to investigate. He would eventually find out what he needed to know.
At that moment, Lu Shu still did not know that her actions had been exposed. On the day that she had sent people to make a move, Lu Shu had been restless the whole day. She did not even go to work and had deliberately stayed at home to wait for the news.
However, she did not expect that after waiting for an entire day, she still did not receive any news about the success or failure of those people’s missions.
Lu Shu’s heart grew more and more uneasy. That night, she sent someone out to investigate, but there was no news at all that night.
Lu Shu grew more and more uneasy. She did not sleep well the entire night, and it was not easy for her to endure until the next day when the person who had gone to investigate finally returned. However, she received terrible news.
“What did you say? The mission failed? What about that woman? How is she?”
“She’s fine? What about our people?” Lu Shu’s eyes were filled with fury. Damn it, how could that b*tch be so lucky? She had sent so many people, but they still failed. What a bunch of useless trash.
The person who came back to report the situation looked troubled when he heard Lu Shu’s words. He paused for a long time before he carefully replied, “Our people were… captured by the police…”
“What did you say?!” Lu Shu could no longer maintain her composure and stood up from the sofa.
“Arrested? Arrested by who? Does Brother Yan know about this? Damn it, how could they be so careless? Are they still alive? They couldn’t even get such a small task done, and they even got themselves arrested. What a waste!” Lu Shu forced herself to calm down. However, the thought of those people being arrested at the police station and Li Yan possibly finding out about it made her unable to calm down at all. She could only vent her anger by scolding him.
The teenager standing in front of Lu Shu was shocked by Lu Shu’s outburst. He opened his mouth and wanted to say something, but he hesitated.
Lu Shu saw him the moment she finished venting her anger. She narrowed her eyes and asked coldly, “I’m asking you a question. Are you mute? You can’t even speak clearly. Do you want me to throw you out to feed the dogs?”
The young man’s legs gave way, and he no longer dawdled. He said with a trembling voice, “Then… those people were… They were taken away by Officer Li, so…”
“What?” Lu Shu’s face turned to one side, and her eyes burned with a raging fire. But soon, her face turned from red to white, and she couldn’t stop muttering, “What should we do? What should we do? Brother Yan knows. What should we do? Will he…”
Lu Shu’s mind was filled with Li Yan’s reaction when he knew about this matter. She did not notice that the young man was still extremely nervous until…
“Miss… Miss… besides this, there’s… There’s one more thing.”
Lu Shu suddenly stopped talking to herself. She swept a cold glance at the young man and said in a malicious tone, “What else is there? Can’t you just say it all at once?”
The youth was frightened by Lu Shu’s fierce look, but he had no choice but to make things clear, he could only bite the bullet and stammer, “I heard that… when our people attacked, the master… the master seemed to be in Ms. Zhao’s car.”
“You’re talking about my dad?” Lu Shu’s expression changed again when she heard that. She suddenly had a bad feeling. “Why is my dad in that b*tch’s car? Why is my dad looking for that b*tch? Why… why…”
