The Big Shot Tears Apart Her Villainess Script After Transmigrating - Chapter 441 - Something Is Wrong With The Boss
Chapter 441: Something Is Wrong With The Boss
Before an old man passed away, he would have a short period of lucidity. At this time, he could remember many things.
Tang Li asked several questions about the person who came to register the children in the village, and Third Uncle told her everything.
However, as he spoke, he breathed his last breath.
Tang Li took a step back and said to her son, “Prepare the funeral for the old man.”
For a moment, the entire house was filled with sorrowful cries.
For the next few days, Butler Yang stayed at Third Uncle’s house. After Third Uncle was buried, the three of them set out to find his sister.
Before Tang Li left, she told Butler Yang, “You have to be mentally prepared. Your sister was taken away because someone asked for her birth characters. There’s only one possibility for this situation, and that is that her birth characters are very compatible with something or someone. If it’s something, she should already be a puppet. If it’s someone, she might very well have become a living dead.”
When Butler Yang heard this, he clenched his fists. No matter how hard he tried to control himself, his hands were trembling. After a while, he said, “I’ll try my best.”
The three of them drove a car southwest.
After driving for a few hours, Tang Li met Xu Guanhai and Zhao Guangyi, who were on their way to the village. The two of them were extremely happy to see her.
Xu Guanhai said, “I didn’t expect to meet Master Tang here. Master Tang, do you want to go to that town together with us?”
Tang Li was a little surprised. They set out from the Imperial Capital pretty much at the same time. The three of them had stayed at Butler Yang’s hometown for a few days, and the two of them should have already gone to that town a long time ago. “Why are you still here?”
Xu Guanhai sighed and told her, “We were about to go straight to that town after getting off the plane, but we were stopped by the people from the Mystic Society in Jiangnan. Something happened here, and we helped them settle it. They said that they would send two people to take us to town. Unexpectedly, those two people were busy and asked us to wait in this town for a day.”
Zhao Guangyi asked Tang Li, “Master Tang, where are you going now?”
“Looking for someone in the southwest.”
“Hey! Isn’t the village we’re going to in the southwest as well? Master Tang, we can go together.”
Tang Li felt that it made sense, so she told Butler Yang, “Maybe there is a clue about your sister in that village.”
Butler Yang had no objections.
Everyone found a restaurant to eat at.
This town was neither big nor small. Because of the rain, there were not many people walking around outside.
There were even fewer people in the restaurant.
When the boss saw them, he quickly greeted them warmly, “Guests, please come in.”
The boss was a middle-aged man in his forties. When he invited them in, he specially glanced at Tang Li and Qi Yihan.
The boss brought them tea and a menu. “Take a look at what you want to eat. I’ll get the cook to prepare it.”
The two masters handed the menu to Tang Li. In front of outsiders, they did not call her Master Tang.
“Miss Tang, you can take a look first.”
The boss glanced at Tang Li again.
Tang Li did not reject it and took the menu to order some dishes.
After ordering the dishes, the boss took the menu to the kitchen and came out with a stool. He sat by the door and looked out.
Xu Guanhai asked, “Boss, isn’t it time for dinner? Why aren’t there many people dining here?”
The boss was worried that they would think that it was because his restaurant was bad that there were no customers, so he quickly turned around and explained to them, “There’s a vocational school nearby. Our main customers are the students. They won’t come out from school until after six. At that time, there will be a lot of people.”
Xu Guanhai nodded and did not ask further. Instead, he told Tang Li about how they were called here to help.
“This place is close to the sea. The nearby fishermen have always encountered some strange phenomena when they go out to the sea to fish in the past six months. They either can’t catch any fish or are chased by ferocious fish. The fishermen tried many methods but couldn’t change this situation, so they invited people from the Mystic Society here.”
The boss, who was eavesdropping on the conversation, sat down next to them and asked, “Are you masters? The kind who can catch ghosts?”
The boss added, “There’s also a master in our town. I wonder if you are better than her.”
Xu Guanhai was a little surprised and asked, “What’s the name of the master here?”
“We call her the Water Granny. Whether it’s fortune-telling or feng shui, she’s very accurate. If any of our children pass away or die young, we’ll go to her, especially…”
At this point, he deliberately lowered his voice, as if he was afraid of being heard. “There is a vocational school nearby, right? The students there… Tsk tsk… None of them take study seriously. There are many times when boys died in brawls. The girls who are good-looking, tsk tsk… Nine out of ten had an abortion. If there are too many of these things, there will definitely be resentful ghosts. They will also ask the water granny for help.”
These words made the masters frown at the same time.
Tang Li asked, “Aren’t the teachers and managers taking care of this situation?”
“It’s a private school. The higher-ups don’t care. Some of them are even involved. They only care when it comes to sleeping with pretty girls.”
“How did you know about this?”
“Everyone in town knows!”
“In that case, why didn’t anyone expose it? Where are the parents of those students? Don’t they know?” Xu Guanhai was furious.
“The shareholders of this school are rich. Whoever dares to expose it will immediately be punished.”
At this point, the boss stressed, “Don’t go out and spout nonsense. Otherwise, not only will you guys get punished, but I will as well.”
They nodded, indicating that they would not let a word leak out.
Soon, the cook finished cooking.
While they were eating, the boss asked Xu Guanhai and Zhao Guangyi, “Are you really masters?”
This time, Zhao Guangyi admitted, “Yes.”
“I see. Master, enjoy your meal. I won’t disturb you anymore.”
After saying that, the boss moved to sit by the door again.
When they were eating, they did not say anything else.
After dinner and paying the bill, the boss asked, “Will you guys stay here tonight? There are several good hotels in our town. If you guys want to stay, I can recommend one for you.”
Xu Guanhai and Zhao Guangyi were about to say something.
Tang Li said first, “Yes. It’s not safe to drive at night. We plan to leave tomorrow morning.”
“This lady is right. Then I’ll recommend a hotel to you. That inn is the best in our town. It’s also clean. You’ll definitely be satisfied staying there.”
