CR: Chapter 355

Rong Cheng never expected that his plan would be seen through by Yu Hanjiang. He had made all the arrangements and boarded the private plane. The plane was about to take off. He just had to get out of here and then he could steadily enjoy the second half of his life abroad with a brand new identity.

Yet at this moment, Yu Hanjiang actually rushed in and placed a gun to his head!

Rong Cheng was so angry he wanted to cough up blood on the spot! In order to escape, he deliberately boarded with no helpers but this made it convenient for Yu Hanjiang to directly get on the private plane to catch him. Rong Cheng really regretted it.

Yu Hanjiang neatly handcuffed him, grabbed the man’s collar to make him stand up from the sofa and pushed him forward while whispering, “Follow me back to the police station.”

Rong Cheng almost stumbled from the push but he pretended to be innocent. “Who are you? Why are you arresting me?”

Yu Hanjiang sneered. “Still pretending to be innocent? You might’ve used a fake ID but your fingerprints and DNA are in our database. I just need to compare them and it is obvious why you are arrested.”

Rong Cheng’s face was ashen gray and he cursed in a low voice.

Yu Hanjiang went all the way back to the police station and Shao Qingge’s group also happened to be there.

Through the heavy rain late at night, Song Xiaoqing and Rong Cheng stared at each other at the door of the police station. Song Xiaoqing rushed forward in an agitated manner and kicked the other person. “Rong Cheng, you basta*d! You actually wanted to blow me up as well! Why didn’t you tell me there were explosives buried in the ground?”

Rong Cheng’s mouth twitched slightly but he was expressionless.

Yu Hanjiang was happy to see the two dogs bite each other. Both of them were arrested and this would be a big help in the next interrogation. He could use Song Xiaoqing’s testimony to put psychological pressure on Rong Cheng.

Shao Qingge came up to Yu Hanjiang. “Do you need our help with the interrogation?”

Yu Hanjiang glanced at Xiao Lou and the other person immediately understood what he meant. Xiao Lou said, “Chief Shao, Group Leader Yu is a professional at interrogating criminals. You can leave this place to us. You have a more important task.”

Shao Qingge was puzzled. “More important? What is the task?”

Xiao Lou whispered in his ear, “Your father has not returned home during this time. Do you know his whereabouts?”

“No, I only called him once after getting out of the hospital and he said he was too busy at the company to go home. I really don’t know where he is.” Shao Qingge raised his eyebrow with a frown. “Do you want me to go home and find out where he is? However, my mother has always been a canary kept in his cage. She should have no idea about his business affairs.”

“She might not know about business but what about emotional matters?” Xiao Lou’s voice was serious. “Sometimes, a woman’s intuition can’t be explained by science. If your father has a mistress outside and an illegitimate child, do you think your mother is really unaware of it?”

“That makes sense!” Shao Qingge smiled at Xiao Lou. “She might be weak but I can see she is a very smart woman. Perhaps she knows where my father and his mistress are living. Of course, the premise is if he really has a mistress.”

According to Xiao Lou’s speculation, Shao Zhengyang must have an illegitimate child. Otherwise, how could he get rid of his only child, Shao Qingge so ruthlessly, even if he was adopted? Xiao Lou reached out and patted Shao Qingge’s shoulder. “Be careful and immediately tell Group Leader Yu if there is information.”

Shao Qingge nodded while Ye Qi actively suggested, “I can go as well. I can protect you!”

Ye Qi felt no pain and all his trauma was healed. He didn’t know about the bullets still in his body and took the initiative to protect Shao Qingge…

Shao Qingge sighed and rubbed Ye Qi’s head. “Okay, let’s act together.”

Ye Qi was still in the bug king state after all. Three hours had passed and Ye Qi would be fine for the next 21 hours. Shao Qingge would also feel more at ease with Ye Qi around him.

Xiao Lou stayed at the police station to help Yu Hanjiang while Shao Qingge returned home with Ye Qi. His adoptive mother Qin Wan hadn’t slept yet.

In the middle of the night, the pale woman sat alone on the sofa in the living room in front of the TV. The sound of the TV echoed in the house but she had fallen asleep on the sofa. It wasn’t known how many nights she had waited for her husband and son like this. Shao Qingge felt a little bitter when he saw this scene. He gently lifted her up to a sitting position and wondered, “Mom, why are you sleeping on the sofa?”

The close distance allowed Shao Qingge to smell a faint fragrance on her body which seemed to be perfume. Qin Wan woke up and rubbed her eyes. She saw the other person and quickly showed a gentle smile. “Where have you been today? Why have you only come back now?”

Shao Qingge softly told her, “I had to go out and do something.” He led Ye Qi over and gave introductions. “This is my mother.”

Ye Qi smiled brightly and bowed. “Grandmother, hello!”

Shao Qingge, “……”

There really was a problem regarding the generations. Ye Qi was 7 years old but did he really have to call Shao Qingge’s mother by ‘Grandmother’?

Qin Wan looked at the blood on Ye Qi’s body with surprise. “Where did this child come from? Why is there blood all over his body?”

Shao Qingge casually made up an excuse. “This is my friend’s son. He wasn’t careful when it rained. He fell on the road and suffered some injuries. Fortunately, it was all skin trauma. His parents aren’t home today so I decided to take him with me for the time being. Mom, I will take him upstairs to clean up.”

Then he took Ye Qi with him to change into clean clothes. After all, Ye Qi’s entire body was covered in blood and it was a scary sight. There were no children’s clothes at home so Shao Qingge found a sweater from the closet for Ye Qi to wear. Ye Qi put on the sweater and looked like a child wearing a big sack. Shao Qingge couldn’t help laughing.

Ye Qi was embarrassed. “I didn’t want to be a child! Don’t laugh!”

Shao Qingge suppressed his laughter with some effort. He looked at the child wearing an adult’s sweater and whispered, “It is quite cute.”

Ye Qi didn’t want to continue this embarrassing topic so he urged, “Let’s hurry to question your mother. Perhaps she really knows the whereabouts of your father.”

Shao Qingge frowned and didn’t know how to respond. This woman wasn’t his mother. She was just a person in the secret room but his mind contained the memories of being raised by her for over 20 years. He couldn’t see her as a stranger. Everyone speculated that his father was probably the boss behind the scenes. Once his father was arrested and he left, his adoptive mother might be alone. However, he couldn’t be soft-hearted at this point.

Shao Qingge gently rubbed his temples and took Ye Qi downstairs. He sat down in the living room and asked, “Mom, Dad hasn’t been home for so many days. Do you know where he is?”

Qin Wan’s expression darkened. “Probably at the company.”

Shao Qingge watched her. “Mom, tell me the truth. Does he have someone outside?”

Qin Wan was silent for a moment before sighing. She lowered her head and answered, “As early as when the doctor told me I couldn’t have children, he looked for a woman who was younger and more beautiful than me. He just didn’t divorce me because my Qin family gave him financial help. The woman gave birth to a son and he hasn’t stopped seeing her after all these years. I always pretended not to know.” She smiled bitterly and looked up at Shao Qingge. “After all, I have to rely on him to live. As for your father’s affairs, don’t worry about it—”

Sure enough, it was as Xiao Lou expected. She did know that her husband had a mistress but pretended not to know. Shao Qingge gently took her hand and wondered, “Where is their residence?”

Qin Wan told Shao Qingge an address. Shao Qingge immediately informed Yu Hanjiang. “Jincui Villa, Villa B-1. Do you need me to go over now?”

Yu Hanjiang replied, “Let’s not scare them first. The moment my side has a result, we will immediately arrest Shao Zhengyang.”

Rong Cheng was very stubborn and he kept insisting he was innocent. However, Song Xiaoqing had already confessed and Yu Hanjiang played her testimony for Rong Cheng to hear. “If you confess now, you can serve as a witness. If you do a good job, the judge might reduce your sentence. If you don’t confess then you will definitely be sentenced to death.”

Song Xiaoqing confessed and Rong Cheng had no choice but to say everything. The thing that shocked Yu Hanjiang was that—

The boss wasn’t Shao Zhengyang but Qin Wan. The seemingly weak and innocent Qin Wan, Shao Qingge’s mother, was actually extremely cruel.

The moment Xiao Lou heard this, his heart almost jumped out of his chest. “Not good! Chief Shao and Xiao Ye are by Qin Wan’s side!”

The basic direction of their inference wasn’t wrong. Uncle Zhong was from the Shao family and could help Shao Zhengyang with many things. Everyone had focused on Shao Zhengyang but in fact, Uncle Zhong could also do these things for the wife!

Shao Zhengyang knew Shao Qingge’s whereabouts so as a mother, how can she not be aware of her son’s whereabouts? Today when Shao Qingge drove to Qingshui Town, it was with Shao Zhengyang’s car and there was a tracker in the car. Shao Zhengyang hadn’t been home for many days. Then who was more likely to have placed the tracker? It was Qin Wan! His mother had been taking care of him after he was discharged from the hospital. She must’ve been watching when he went to the study to find information.

The more Xiao Lou thought about it, the more frightened he became. He hurriedly told Yu Hanjiang, “Group Leader Yu, hurry and tell Chief Shao!”

Fortunately, Yu Hanjiang and Shao Qingge were connected to each other using Heart has a Tacit Exchange of Romantic Feelings. He didn’t use the phone and spoke directly in his mind, “The boss is your mother, not your father! We will come as soon as possible but be careful of her!”

Meanwhile, Shao Qingge and Ye Qi were sitting on the sofa in the living room. Qin Wan brought out two bowls of steaming fish porridge. She placed the porridge in front of them and smiled. “You both got caught in the rain. Come, drink some hot porridge first. Your friend’s child is very cute. Let him rest here tonight and send him back tomorrow.”

Shao Qingge’s heart was warm. “Thank you Mom.”

He had just scooped up the porridge and was raising the spoon to his mouth when he heard Yu Hanjiang tell him that his mother was the boss.

Shao Qingge, “……”

He looked at the bowl of porridge in front of him and his fingers became slightly stiff.

Ye Qi was only interested in blood since turning into the bug king. No matter how fragrant, the fish porridge wasn’t attractive to him at all. Still, he had to behave normally so he picked up the fish porridge and drank it.

Shao Qingge was too late to prevent it. He watched Ye Qi wolf down half a bowl of porridge and his heart trembled. Fortunately, Xiao Ye was the bug king. Even if the porridge was poisoned, it would have no effect on him. Shao Qingge didn’t dare to drink it. He put the bowl back on the table and held Qin Wan’s shoulder as he started acting. “Mom, I already ate before coming back. I can’t eat again.”

Ye Qi keenly noticed that something was wrong when Shao Qingge put down the porridge but he ignored it and continued to drink the rest. Qin Wan’s eyes were gentle. “Then do you want a glass of water?”

Shao Qingge hurriedly waved his hand. “No, I’m a bit tired. I’ll go back to my room first to rest.”

Just now, he had been feeling sorry for this woman. He thought that after her husband was arrested and her son left, she might be alone for the rest of her life. As a result, Yu Hanjiang told him such an amazing thing. He looked at the woman with a gentle smile on her face and got goosebumps.

Thinking carefully, there had actually been some loopholes in his previous conversations with her.

She said that Shao Qingge’s heart came from a death row prisoner. The other party left a son behind and in order to express her gratitude for saving Shao Qingge’s life, she gave Uncle Zhong 50 million gold coins and asked him to pass it on to the other person’s son. Shao Qingge felt that she was too kind. She gave the death row prisoner 20 million gold coins for selling the kidney and another 50 million in thanks.

Yet thinking about it carefully… being kind didn’t mean being stupid. How could the thank you amount be more expensive than the kidney itself? It was like someone picking up a wallet with 200,000 yuan and the owner giving them 500,000 yuan in thanks. It didn’t make sense! He was afraid that the 500,000 yuan was for Uncle Zhong. She said this because she was afraid the police would discover it.

The price of 200,000 that Shao Zhengyang told Yu Hanjiang was actually what Uncle Zhong told him. Shao Zhengyang wasn’t too clear about the price of organs. He just listened to the report from Uncle Zhong. In fact, Shao Zhengyang was kept in the dark by his wife. Shao Zhengyang had been missing for so many days. Combined with the affair and illegitimate son, perhaps he had been killed by her?

The more Shao Qingge thought about it, the colder he felt. In particular, he was flustered as Qin Wan kept sitting next to him and smiled at him lovingly. Still, he pretended not to know anything on the surface. He raised Ye Qi up and said, “Mom, go to bed early. Xiao Ye and I will go to bed as well. The rain outside is too heavy and this kid is afraid of the dark. Let him sleep in my bedroom for one night.”

Qin Wan’s smile became gentler. “Okay, take good care of your friend’s child.”

Shao Qingge told her goodnight and took Ye Qi’s hand to go upstairs. After arriving in his room, Shao Qingge gently closed the door. Then he leaned against it and exhaled.

Ye Qi looked puzzled. “What’s going on?”

Shao Qingge made a ‘shh’ motion. He raised Ye Qi’s hand and wrote on the palm: [She is the boss.]

Ye Qi, “……”
