He paused for a moment before continuing, “The moment I reached home, I saw a bunch of people in my house who held my wife and children hostage to force me to drink the poison myself. I understood everything at the instant that I saw my family.” He then began bawling loudly.
Filled with a mix of emotions, An Xiaoning asked, “What is the name of your general manager? Where does he live?”
He answered her truthfully, after which he asked, “Do you know him?”
“Ms. An, I really didn’t intend to harm you guys. I had no feud with you at all, so why would I do that? It’s all my fault for letting my tongue slip and ending up causing your deaths.”
“I’m not dead yet.”
“If you… you’re not dead, how did you end up here…”
An Xiaoning lowered her voice and said, “Although you’re just a salesperson, you’ve probably seen me around the estate rather frequently. Don’t you know what I do for a living?”
Yang Yong gasped in shock and said, “So you came here…”
“I came here just to look for you and avenge their deaths…” said An Xiaoning, pointing at the people beside her. She continued, “They dug up a secret pa.s.sageway below the bridge of the estate and pa.s.sed through it to reach the bas.e.m.e.nt of my house. They then made a hole in the water pipe underground, which they then used to transfuse the poison to our water supply…”
Gazing at the familiar faces beside her, An Xiaoning said to them, “Rest a.s.sured and go ahead to reincarnate in peace. I’ll definitely take revenge for you.”
“With that said, we can put our minds at ease now. Actually, I used to want to end my life in the past. My asthma made life extremely miserable for me. However, I soon regained my hope for life after living together with you and everyone else. Yet… fortunately, the seven of them managed to survive. Sis, the fourteen of us have been jinxed ever since we were young. I hope they’ll continue to live on well for our sake, and I hope they’ll be safe and sound,” said No. 14.
“I’ll do my best,” said An Xiaoning, who could not guarantee their safety.
Yang Yong said, “Ms. An, could I ask something of you?”
“What is it?”
“I know it’s utterly shameless of me to be asking for your help since I indirectly caused the deaths of your bodyguards. However, now that I dropped dead all of a sudden, my family…”
“I heard that your wife has received a sum of money. I went to visit your house before I came here. Your wife has moved to your new place together with your children and their luggage. I reckon they’ll be safe since they don’t know anything at all. You’re already dead anyway.”
“I was going to ask you to relay a message to my wife and tell her that I’m sorry toward her and the kids. But, forget it, I don’t want her to feel even more upset.”
Since An Xiaoning could not stay around in the netherworld for too long, this would be the last time she’d see them in this lifetime.
“I have to get going. You’ve been through a life of pain and suffering in this lifetime. I hope you’ll enjoy peace and security in your next life. Go ahead and reincarnate in peace. I’ll make whoever killed you guys pay for everything they had done with their lives. I won’t spare them at all,” An Xiaoning said with an immense misery in her eyes that she could not put into words.
No. 13 stepped forward and hugged her. Choking with sobs, he said, “Sis, we still want to work for you.”
Everyone joined in for a group hug.
The tears that An Xiaoning had been trying to hold back streamed down her face uncontrollably. She pressed her lips together, at a complete loss for words.
When she came to, she opened her eyes and immediately felt a sudden coldness in her face. She touched her face with her hand, only to discover that her hands were full of tears.
The joss stick in the urn had completely burned out.
“Why did you take so long?” asked Jin Qingyan, who had been waiting by the door.
“Um…” Her face had turned pale and she could not walk steadily.
Hearing how feeble she sounded, Jin Qingyan hurriedly held her and said, “Sit down for a while.”
He then instructed Auntie Chen, “Please bring her a gla.s.s of milk.”
“I want it cold…”
“Cold drinks aren’t good for you. Have some warm milk instead. How’s the situation?” Jin Qingyan asked.
“I’ve gotten a new lead from Yang Yong. I’ll get some rest now before continuing to investigate on that lead,” said An Xiaoning, who wanted to strike the iron while it’s hot.
“Let me accompany you.”
“I can manage on my own. You don’t have to show your face. I don’t want you to be implicated into this. He knows which estate that general manager lives in, but he doesn’t know the exact address. Let s.h.i.+xin look into this and give me the results later.”
Minutes later, Auntie Chen handed An Xiaoning a piping-hot gla.s.s of milk.
She let it cool down for a while before drinking it.
Her stomach instantly felt better after she downed the gla.s.s of warm milk.
After resting for another few minutes, she headed to a luxurious estate.
It was located in a district in A City where business magnates and tyc.o.o.ns of the upper cla.s.s society enjoyed residing. All the residents in the area were powerful figures and people of status.
The prices of the houses in this estate were comparable to those in the city center.
There were also some residents who had rented an apartment or house in the estate.
It was just a matter of personal preferences and needs.
Before she arrived, Jin Qingyan told her, “Even if it’s rented, the rental still costs an exorbitant amount that the average wealthy person cannot afford.”
She pulled over outside the estate and alighted from the car.
One could only enter the estate using their personal identification card or key card.
Since An Xiaoning did not have a key card, her only option was to climb over the wall.
It was the middle of the night and her shadow was cast onto a patch of gra.s.s.
She soon found out which floor the general manager was staying on.
She entered the corridor openly and stepped inside the elevator, after which she pressed the b.u.t.ton of her desired floor.
Ding! The doors of the elevator opened when it arrived on the 11th floor.
An Xiaoning exited to see that there were two apartments on that floor. She turned to the side and walked toward the door that was facing the East.
At this moment, An Xiaoning was donning a wig that was made up of a neat row of bangs and long, curly locks, as well as her beautiful mask. She was dressed in a short-sleeved blouse and a short skirt, coupled with a pair of high heels. No one would have guessed that she was An Xiaoning.
Hence, the manager was slightly taken aback to see such a gorgeous woman at his doorstep via the surveillance camera monitor.
He opened the door and scanned her from head to toe. “Miss, who are you looking for?”
“h.e.l.lo, may I ask if you are Manager Qi?”
“I am. You are?”
Keeping a straight face, An Xiaoning answered, “It’s better to talk inside.”
Manager Qi stared in bewilderment as she entered his room. He closed the door and followed her. “Just who are you?”
An Xiaoning turned around to face him and asked, “Do you… want to know who I am?”
With a grave expression on his face, Manager Qi said, “Just get straight to the point, you don’t have to beat around the bush.”
“You sent someone to kill Yang Yong. Did you really think that no one would find out?” said An Xiaoning, staring at him with a smile. A frown creased his forehead.
“I don’t quite understand what you’re talking about.”
“Don’t think he can’t speak just because he’s dead.” An Xiaoning reached out to pull down her mask to reveal a tiny bit of her actual face before pasting the mask back on.
Upon the sight of her, Manager Qi stumbled forward and his eyes widened in shock while he broke out into a cold sweat. “An Xiaoning…”
“It’s me. You must be very surprised, aren’t you?” Pointing at the sofa, An Xiaoning commanded, “Sit.”
Manager Qi sat down and asked, “What are you looking me up for?”
