Chapter 181 Crazy Man
Rachel Connor was astonished when she saw Zhou Qingfeng. She has been thinking about her escape plan but she never thought of Zhou Qingfeng at all. They were staring at each other under the water. After a while, Rachel recovered from her astonishment, returned to the surface, and continued to shower as if nothing had happened.
A few moments later, Rachel quickly turned around as she suddenly realized that she was naked right in front of Zhou Qingfeng. However, when she turned around, she thought it was inappropriate to show her naked hips too. Thus, she swam away and went to take her towel.
Rachel covered herself with a towel and realized Zhou Qingfeng must be the one that the guards were searching for from earlier. She thought for a few seconds and spoke to the female guards, “Can you guys leave me alone? I don’t like being stared at when I’m showering.”
Two of the female guards were bulky and burly. Their fists and arms were very muscular, they had ferocious looks, and they appeared to be even tougher than men. They thought nothing was going on so they walked out to the changing room.
As two of the female guards left, Zhou Qingfeng and the kid were breathing heavily after they returned to the surface of the pool. Rachel, who was covered with a towel, asked angrily, “You little b*stard, why are you in my bathroom? Are you peeping at me while I’m showering?”
“It was an accident.” Zhou Qingfeng opened his armband computer and typed on it, “I was going to ask, why are you here? Do you know that your husband’s searching for you like a madman?”
As Zhou Qingfeng mentioned ‘husband’, Rachel immediately calmed down. She quickly typed on the virtual screen of the armband computer. “Are my husband and daughter okay?”
“They’re fine. They’re coping well, they’re just worried about you.” Zhou Qingfeng asked again, “Why are you on this ship?”
“David went after Angie when the chaos emerged and I was attacked by gangsters when I was at home. I ran away since I couldn’t fight them. I didn’t have anything with me and I can’t reach David, so I went to Fernando for help.” Rachel was confounded when she talked about Fernando.
Zhou Qingfeng guessed, “So, two of you…..”
Rachel snapped, “Nonsense! Do you think I’m a prostitute? I was seeking his help to get back to my husband. In fact, he was helping me initially. He even contacted many of the mercenaries from the South he knew of for help.”
“But his mind started to change as more and more mercenaries joined. He started to just think about himself and his wild ambition. After that, he robbed this ‘Polarlys’ and decided to build his own team. He even became one of the Big Five of Skull and Bones and started to constrain me.”
Ugh, it’s all my fault. I snatched DogMeat and that’s why Angie didn’t manage to go home. Thus, David Lawrence went out and so Rachel escaped from their house. In the end, Fernando gathered all these men and caused all these problems.
“Ugh, What is this Mr. Fernando Rethnor trying to do?” Zhou Qingfeng showed his curious face, “Is he going to….”
Rachel immediately shut up and she appeared to be unhappy. She typed on the computer, “You should get me out of here instead of thinking about those meaningless questions.”
“I only have a carbine, a pistol, and a few grenades with me. It’s impossible for me to fight against these hundreds of mercenaries.” Zhou Qingfeng was not heavily armed as he had only come to investigate.
“I don’t care. You need to get me out of this stupid place; this place is driving me crazy. Fernando is asking everyday….” As Rachel was talking, the female guard outside suddenly shouted, “Madam Connor, Mr. Rethnor is here. He’d like to have dinner with you.”
Zhou Qingfeng and the kid again dived into the pool again as he heard the female guard coming in. Rachel looked at Zhou Qingfeng in the pool, said something to him, and left. When he returned to the surface, she was already gone and the pool was silent once again.
Phew…., Zhou Qingfeng heaved a sigh of relief and brought the kid back to the laundry room. Again, he intimidated the washerwoman and prepared to leave. However, it was difficult for Zhou Qingfeng to leave now because it seemed like the guards on the ship had changed. All of them looked serious and focused.
“Feels like Fernando is really a major influence. The entire ship looks so different when he’s here.” Zhou Qingfeng suspected that the guards were alert probably because of his diving equipment. He was going to abandon the diving equipment he had hidden.
“Butcher, my equipment will probably be discovered. The guards on the ship are searching for me. I’ll just dive right into the sea and leave. I’ll meet you in the south bay.” Zhou Qingfeng found a rope on the ship and went down into the sea with the rope.
Fortunately, the bay was very close to the shore. After Zhou Qingfeng met up with Butcher, they returned to Staten Island the next morning.
When Zhou Qingfeng was leaving the ship, Rachel was walking into the captain’s cabin of ‘Polarlys’. The long table was filled with delicious food and there were even candles on the table. The entire atmosphere was warm and harmonious.
Fernando Rethnor was wearing a fancy suit, sitting at the end of the long table with a warm smile. The moment he saw Rachel appear with a low-cut dress, he praised her sincerely: “Rachel, you’re so beautiful! You’re giving me surprises all day every day.”
Rachel sat at the other end of the long table with a neutral expression. She did not even look at the man opposite and started to eat her dinner. Fernando remained calm and patient. He smiled and said, “You’re so beautiful even when you’re angry, I’m so amazed.”
Fernando was not even there for dinner. He just stared at the beautiful woman that was sitting on the opposite side the whole time. He was staring at her face, her body, her movements, and he was fascinated. However, it did not last long. A man came to him and mumbled a few words beside him. Following that, a set of wet diving equipment was placed in front of him.
Fernando’s face changed immediately. The way he looked at Rachel was replaced by anger and coldness. He shouted, “Rachel.”
Rachel ignored him.
Fernando outraged. He punched the table and snapped, “Rachel Connor, look at me!”
Rachel was shocked by his punch and raised her head.
“Did your husband come? David Lawrence’s here, right? He was going to save you. Unfortunately, he failed.”
Rachel did not reply to him.
“Rachel, my dear Rachel. Do you know how much I love you?” Fernando stood up and tore apart his shirt, “I’d even dig my heart out and show you but you’re not responding to any of my love. I’m so disappointed in you!”
“You're the main reason why I’m befriending with your husband. I’ve been showing you my love but you don’t see it. You know what? I don’t like David at all. I hate him because he’s arrogant and proud all the time. I hate him!”
“You know what? Your husband can’t save you. It’s the end of the world. I don’t care about laws or morals anymore. I’m gonna do whatever I want. I’ll marry you, organize a wedding with you, and throw a huge party after that. I don’t care what you think. You will be mine for the rest of your life.”
The crazy man roared, “No one can save you, no one can change this, no one can take you away from me, no one!”
