1196 Car Key
Shen Li immediately became alert!
When Yu Yu heard this, a trace of hesitation appeared on her face.
This was actually something they had discussed much earlier. When Shen Li came over, she would be in charge of driving her away.
But now… she was regretting it.
She had discovered that s.h.i.+ Yang was a very dangerous person!
Things did not seem to be going the way she had expected.
s.h.i.+ Yang seemed to have guessed what she was thinking and his eyes fell upon her face.
“If you regret it, you can just say it.”
Yu Yu subconsciously retorted.
Meeting s.h.i.+ Yang’s scrutinizing gaze, she had no choice but to say, “I… I just feel that I might not be able to handle her… on my own.”
s.h.i.+ Yang took out a small white medicine bottle from his pocket, then walked to the coffee table. He poured out two white pills and threw them into the cup of tea that Shen Li had not touched.
Then, he pa.s.sed the cup of tea to Shen Li.
“The tea is a little cold, so just make do with it.”
Shen Li’s gaze fell on the bottom of the cup, where the white pills were lying quietly.
“Don’t worry, it’s just sleeping pills.”
s.h.i.+ Yang smiled and explained, “The road might be a little b.u.mpy. Also, I’m hoping that you can be quiet.”
Shen Li said coldly, “What if I don’t drink it?”
s.h.i.+ Yang reached towards the back of his waist with his other hand.
The next second, a dark hole was aimed at her.
“It’s fine if you don’t want to drink.”
Yu Yu’s eyes widened, and a look of shock flashed across her face!
s.h.i.+ Yang had a gun?
The air froze.
Shen Li finally raised her hand and accepted the cup of tea.
A white car drove away from Jinye Villa.
The sky was gloomy, and large gray-green clouds were piling up on the horizon.
The rain began to fall, and the road was soon wet.
Yu Yu turned on the winds.h.i.+eld wipers and frowned in frustration as she watched the raindrops fall.
She was already very unwilling to do this, but it just had to rain.
She looked in the rearview mirror and saw that Shen Li’s hands were tied behind her back. Her mouth was taped and she was lying on the back seat.
As long as one did not get too close, no one would notice that she was in the back of the car.
What’s more, this road was going up the hill, so there were not many people coming and going. In addition, it was raining today, so it was even more empty.
She had driven so far, yet she had not encountered a single car.
She would just have to forget it. She would be able to come back once she arrived at the place and had sent her there.
With that in mind, Yu Yu kept her thoughts to herself and continued driving along the road.
Lu Huaiyu was sitting quietly in the living room when his phone suddenly rang, interrupting his thoughts.
He looked at his phone and his eyebrows twitched. It was a message from Shen Li.
He opened it without any hesitation, but he was suddenly stunned.
Shen Li had sent him her location: Jingye Villa.
Lu Huaiyu’s brows furrowed.
The villa was in the suburbs of the Capital. Hadn’t she wanted to go to Fino Laboratory? Why had she gone there?
Both of these places were not in the same direction at all.
He immediately texted back.
[ Ah Li? ]
However, after he sent this message, he did not receive a reply.
Lu Huaiyu waited for a while. For some reason, he felt uneasy.
Just then, Gu Tinglan called.
Lu Huaiyu picked it up.
“h.e.l.lo,” he said.
“Lu Er, is Ah Li with you?” Gu Tinglan got straight to the point, his voice carrying a sense of urgency.
“No, she’s not.” Lu Huaiyu rarely heard him speak in such a tone. “What’s wrong? Are you looking for her for an urgent matter?”
Gu Tinglan took a deep breath.
“Yes. I called her just now, but I couldn’t get through, so I thought I’d ask you.”
The ominous feeling in Lu Huaiyu’s heart grew stronger.
“She came to Rongyue Mansion once around two o’clock, but she left after that. I didn’t see her. Why are you looking for her?”
Gu Tinglan was silent for a moment before he said in a deep voice, “We’ve suspected for a long time that the fire in Lincheng was deliberately set up by someone and we’ve narrowed the suspects down to a man named Dylan. However, the other party has forged an ident.i.ty and we’ve never been able to find him. Ah Li suspected that there was something wrong with s.h.i.+ Yang, so I went to check on him. In the days before and after the fire, he had continuously told people that he had gone to the countryside, but in fact, he had not gone at all!”
If he did not have a guilty conscience, why would he lie about such a thing?
Moreover, s.h.i.+ Yang was a very cautious person. If Gu Tinglan had not used all of his connections and power to specifically investigate and double-check, he probably would not have found anything.
What this meant was almost self-evident!
“This matter is very urgent, but I can’t get through to Ah Li’s phone–”
“A villa in the Capital.” Lu Huaiyu suddenly interrupted him and said, “She just sent me her location. She’s at Jingye Villa. But… She was supposed to go to Fino Laboratory today.”
Gu Tinglan was shocked, “Jinye Villal? Why did she suddenly go there?”
“I don’t know. I’ve sent her messages, but she hasn’t replied.”
Lu Huaiyu’s heart continued to sink.
If even Gu Tinglan could not get through to her, it would probably be the same for him.
Gu Tinglan had obviously realized the seriousness of the matter.
“You mean to say…”
“Where’s s.h.i.+ Yang?” Lu Huaiyu stood up.
“I asked his a.s.sistant earlier. He said that s.h.i.+ Yang wasn’t feeling well so he was staying home today–”
Gu Tinglan’s voice suddenly stopped.
No one knew if s.h.i.+ Yang was really at home!
“Go to s.h.i.+ Yang’s place and keep an eye on him. I’ll go to Jingye Villa to find Ah Li.
Lu Huaiyu’s voice was cold.
Gu Tinglan understood that the situation was not optimistic, so he immediately said, “Alright, I know.”
Lu Huaiyu ended the call, went to the master bedroom, and opened the bottommost drawer.
A car key was lying there quietly.
Without any hesitation, he took the key and turned to leave.
