Chapter 108 What Can You Get in the End?
Xue Qingyan reminded Qin Sheng over the phone that no matter what he would do, he should be careful. Obviously, she had got some news. Qin Sheng came to Hangzhou and looked for a man with a special identity, which was not as simple as it looked. The force that kidnapped the man Qin Sheng wanted to find was not ordinary. Unless it was necessary, she would not show up to help Qin Sheng out, yet it was not the time now.
The power of Zhang Zibang and Zhang Ziyu was amazing. They spent lots of energy and money asking around and finally got more detailed information, which showed that the Zhang family was really powerful.
Before night fell, in a farm villa next to the Xiang Lake, Zhang Zibang, Zhang Ziyu, and Qin Sheng were ready to head for the place where Hong Xing was locked. It was unknown whether Hong Xing was alive or dead.
“Are you sure that Brother Hong is at Qiandao Lake?” Qin Sheng felt somewhat uneasy and asked again.
Zhang Ziyu, who wore a camouflage outfit today, said in a miffed tone, “Why did you talk so much nonsense? With the strength of our Zhang family, is there any need to lie to you? Whether you go or not, it’s none of our business.”
Qin Sheng smiled and said, “I just asked a question. Look at you, can you be polite?”
“I can’t treat a lascivious guy politely. You should be glad that I haven’t killed you,” Zhang Ziyu said in an indifferent tone. The duo was like quarrelsome lovers. It was unknown how much hatred and resentment she had against Qin Sheng.
Qin Sheng murmured, “Girls only know how to fight and kill all day. I wonder who will dare to marry you in the future. Maybe you will live alone until you die.”
Zhang Ziyu still wanted to refute but was stopped by Zhang Zibang, who chuckled and said, “Don’t worry. I’m sure that he is at Qiandao Lake. Today we’ll help you rescue him. Don’t forget what you promised. If you want to play tricks on me, then today will be your last day.”
The brother and sister were both cruel and heartless. Qin Sheng laughed and said, “Don’t worry. I still don’t want to die.”
“Then let’s go,” Zhang Zibang snorted coldly.
Qin Sheng warned, “As for this action, unless it’s necessary, we can’t kill anyone, in case it causes us more trouble.”
“You can rest assured. I’ll remind them of it.” Zhang Zibang nodded and said.
Zhang Zibang and his sister brought four strong trusted subordinates while Qin Sheng took Zhao Song, Hong Tao, and Bi Yong. The total of ten people drove three cars and headed for the Qiandao Lake.
The Qiandao Lake was located in Chun’an County, southwest of Hangzhou. It was 130 kilometers away from Hangzhou and a two-hour drive. It was called the back garden of the Yangtze River Delta.
Qin Sheng and his people were in a Nissan car; Zhao Song drove the car. Bi Yong was in the front passenger seat while Qin Sheng and Hong Tao sat in the back. Qin Sheng closed his eyes and rested. After he got the news, he had already reported to Jiang Xianbang and also mentioned the deal with Zhang Zibang and his sisters. As for the origins between their relationship, Qin Sheng did not say anything. Jiang Xianbang was most concerned about whether Hong Xing was alive or dead at this time, so he had no objection to the deal of giving the thing to the Zhang family. In his eyes, the thing, which caused him to get involved in so many events, was ominous. Hence, it was OK for him to give it up.
In the end, Jiang Xianbang repeatedly warned Qin Sheng to be careful.
In the southeast of Chun’an County, there was an island, surrounded by lakes, far away from the main scenic spot of Qiandao Lake. It could be said that it was isolated from the world. In the Changfa Ridge of this island, a piece of land near the lake was developed and a mountain manor was erected. Although it was not large, the supporting facilities were relatively complete. There were three small buildings, a tennis court, a badminton court, etc. It must be a resort manor built by a rich man, who would come to enjoy his vacation for a few days when he was free.
Hong Xing, who had been missing for a few days, was locked in the basement of the main building. Apart from him, there were a dozen other people, counting the servants. Only eight men were responsible for watching Hong Xing. After all, no one knew that Hong Xing was here. The eight men were enough to deal with Hong Xing.
The man, who was in charge of this place, look vicious. He was called Ren Zhun. The 36-year-old man was not tall with sparse hair and walked with a limp. They had been here for four or five days, but they had not got the result his boss wanted, which upset him. The matter he thought was simple had not progressed. If his boss had not warned him not to kill Hong Xing, he would have done it.
After severe torture, Hong Xing still did not say a bit of useful news, which infuriated Ren Zhun so that he screamed abuse. In the end, he could only leave in a huff. Now he was drinking with his minions in the living room while eating fish they fished for from the Qiandao Lake. The fish was extremely fresh and also the most attractive delicacy of Qiandao Lake.
“Brother Ren, Hong Xing is fucking stubborn. If he has been keeping his mouth shut, then what shall we do? We can not always be here, right?” One of Ren Zhun’s minions, Huang Mao grumbled. They had been here for five days. If they continued to stay here, they did not know when they would be able to leave. His little lover had started to complain about it. If she could not see him in a few days, she would break up with him.
Ren Zhun said in an irritated tone, “Huang Mao, do you think I am willing to stay here? This boring place is hardly comparable to Hangzhou, but this is the boss’s order, so I have no choice. If you want to complain about it, go and tell the boss. Don’t grumble here.”
Huang Mao was speechless. Lao Lang, the burly minion sitting next to him, chipped in, “Brother Ren, does Hong Xing have no weakness? Every man has his weaknesses.”
“He has no children, no wife, no lover, no friends or relatives. This kind of person is really difficult to deal with. I’ve done all I can do. Help me think about it. What else can we do? We have to fix it,” Ren Zhun replied in an annoyed voice. It was really the first time he had met the person like Hong Xing, who had nothing to worry about and was so loyal to his boss. It was really fucking strange.
Five of them were deep in thought, thinking about how to deal with it. Hong Xing, who suffered excruciating torture and almost lost his original appearance, still kept his mouth shut. They wondered whether Hong Xing’s boss treated him so well that Hong Xing worked himself to death or both of them were a gay couple.
At this moment, the living room came in a man, who was dressed in a sloppy coat with untidy hair which seemed to have not been washed for a long period of time. It seemed that a bad smell was emitted from his body. Everyone threw him a disdainful glance when he walked in.
“Zhao Quan, you are coming in time. Hurry to figure out how to make Hong Xing speak?” Ren Zhun looked at the man coming in and quickly greeted him, although he despised this kind of person from the bottom of his heart.
That was right. This man was Zhao Quan, who picked up Qin Sheng at the Hangzhou East Railway Station and was also Zhao Song’s uncle. Unexpectedly, he appeared here. Obviously, he didn’t die. Hence, many things could be figured out. That night, he was the real traitor. The gang of people was obviously with this group of people. It was no wonder that Zhao Quan did not leave and finally disappeared.
However, as for other things, it did not make sense. Why did he let Qin Sheng go?
Zhao Quan narrowed his eyes and walked into the crowd, sitting casually next to Ren Zhun. Then he lit a cigarette, saying, “Is Hong Xing still unwilling to tell us anything?”
Ren Zhun helplessly shook his head and said, “If he had told us anything, we would not have still stayed here.”
“Fuck!” Zhao Quan shouted abuse. “The matter cannot be put off any longer. Besides Mr. Jiang, there is still another gang of people looking for him. They’re not easy to deal with. I am afraid that the event will get more complicated.”
“Do you think I don’t know about it? The boss has just called and yelled at me. What can I do? This guy is very tough,” Ren Zhun said, foul-mouthed.
Zhao Quan frowned and gritted his teeth, saying, “Let me try again. I don’t believe that I can’t deal with him.”
After that, Zhao Quan got up and went to the basement. Ren Zhun immediately followed him with two minions. After all, he did not trust Zhao Quan.
The basement of the villa was very large and there were pieces of fitness equipment everywhere. It was obviously used as a gym. Hong Xing in his forties was tied to the middle column. He only wore underpants and his body became a bloody pile of flesh. He must have suffered a lot in the last few days. At this moment, he was in a trance.
“Wake him up.” Ren Zhun waved at one of his minions by his side and said.
The minion carried a basin of cold water and poured it directly onto Hong Xing’s face. Hong Xing was instantly awakened and the blood on his face was washed away. He had already been disfigured and lost his original appearance.
“Brother Hong, why are you so stubborn?” Zhao Quan stood in front of Hong Xing and sighed.
After seeing the man clearly in front of him, Hong Xing smiled weakly. His eyes were full of disdain as he said, “I am just a henchman. I know nothing. Don’t waste your time. Just Kill me.”
Zhao Quan shook his head and said with a wry smile, “Brother Hong, others don’t know about it, but how could I not know? You’ve been in charge of Mr. Jiang’s affairs. If you don’t know, who will know?”
“Hahahaha, look at you, you’re too stupid, so I can’t replace me. We’re all henchmen, who should be loyal to their owners. You’re a henchman, but not a good one.” Hong Xing struggled and said. He even laughed, but the movement caused him to feel a sharp pain in the wounds and grit his teeth.
Zhao Quan looked very unhappy and said, “Brother Hong, since you refuse to cooperate, don’t blame me.”
After that, Zhao Quan turned around, grabbed a handful of salt by his side, and sprinkled it directly on Hong Xing’s body. The salt immediately got into his wounds. Hong Xing’s face almost twitched. He groaned painfully but still gritted his teeth to bear the pain.
The other men standing next to him and could not bear to see it, sighing, “Why are you so stubborn? What can you get in the end?”
At this time, Qin Sheng, Zhang Zibang, and Zhang Ziyu had arrived in Chun’an County. They had already found the specific position through GPS positioning and was about to head for the destination’s back mountain by boat.
