Chapter 2342: How Many People?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In the room, the mother and daughter talked for a while. Mrs. Jiang held Jiang Yao in her arms and fed the fruits on the fruit platter to Jiang Yao, just as she used to hold her daughter when she was a child.
At that moment, Lu Xingzhi was chatting happily in the living room. In the room, Mrs. Jiang and her daughter were in a scene of motherly love and filial piety.
Mrs. Jiang cherished that peace because she could not guarantee when Jiang Yao would return after she left the army base.
Mrs. Jiang had a lot of worries in her heart, but she did not dare to say a word. She was afraid that if she said anything, it would only add more psychological burden to Jiang Yao and Lu Xingzhi, so she could only act as if nothing had happened. Just like an elder who trusted in Jiang Yao and Lu Xingzhi’s abilities, she only did her best to take care of them. She gave her children the best care that an elder could give. As for the rest, it seemed like she could only leave it to fate.
If it were possible, she would be willing to face that danger on Jiang Yao’s behalf. However, that was not something she could simply replace because she wanted to.
Mrs. Jiang lingered in the room with Jiang Yao before leaving. She would go outside to warm up the soup for the guests who were drinking and eating outside as it was cold. However, just as Mrs. Jiang was about to leave, a soldier ran in anxiously.
While running, that soldier yelled, “Colonel Lu, something bad has happened! Something bad has happened!”
When the soldier shouted, everyone in the room stopped drinking. The young soldier panted. “A group of people said they were the family members of those on the cruise s.h.i.+p,” he said, pointing to the door. “They gathered at the entrance and asked the troops to exchange their family members for Mrs. Lu.”
“How many people came?” Lu Xingzhi frowned.
“More than a hundred people came. The elderly, the weak, women, and children accounted for the majority. Only 30 to 40 percent of them were young and strong. Our people guarded the entrance and did not let them in. They did not force their way in either. However, they kept standing at the entrance and shouting random things as if they wouldn’t leave until they saw Mrs. Lu.”
“Aren’t they being rude? They even forced their way here like that? They want his wife to go and exchange for their family members?” Zhou Junmin was instantly enraged. “Who’s the leader? He’s bold enough to cause trouble at the entrance, so let’s kill him with a single shot as a spy!”
“There are so many hostages’ family members in the city?”
Lu Xingzhi sneered, “I’ll go and take a look. You guys continue drinking.”
“Colonel Lu, the Chief is already there. You should wait.” The young soldier pulled Lu Xingzhi back and was worried that Hades Lu would really pull out his gun and kill the person once he went there.
Jiang Yao walked out of the bedroom. While putting on her coat, she said, “Xingzhi, I’ll go with you.”
“Go! Go! Let’s all go!” Zhou Junmin finished the remaining wine in his cup in one gulp and said, “I’d like to see which one of them is pretending to be a victim here!” There were no victims from Luo City. The pa.s.sengers on that cruise s.h.i.+p were mostly from the north. There were a few victims from
Nanjiang City, the closest city to Luo City. Where did those people come from?
After saying that, Zhou Junmin turned to Jiang Yao and said, “Don’t go if you’re not feeling well..”
