B City was brightly lit after nightfall.
In the quiet suburban villa, the red wine glass shook. Everything had gone as Gu Zhengsong expected.
“People have been arranged over there. There is no movement on the police side,” the subordinate said. The transaction went smoothly tonight. Then they could really feel at ease in B City.
Gu Zhengsong took a sip of the red wine. From the corner of his eyes, he looked at the monitoring on the TV that was connected to the transaction site. “Is there no news from Gu Shen? There is no news about whether he is dead or alive?”
“The person who started the action has been controlled by the police. So far, there is no movement from the police in S City. The Chen and Shen families are also very calm. Gu Shen probably hasn’t had time to say anything.” The subordinate looked at the man sitting in the front seat while suppressing the fear in his heart. He could even give up his own son. Their boss was very decisive in some things. Due to this, people would be afraid and not dare to disobey.
Gu Zhengsong didn’t look at the expressions of other people. His attention was all on the monitoring. After dealing with these things, Gu Shen’s hidden danger would be solved. Then the return gift to the Chen and Shen families couldn’t be too light. His current situation was caused by these people. It was never too late to kill them. He would let them live two more days of a peaceful life.
He wouldn’t let any of those involved in this matter go.
Just as he was thinking this, he suddenly noticed the momentary shaking of the surveillance screen. “Zoom in over there.”
At this time, there seemed to be some movement outside the villa.
The subordinate was calling the transaction site, but before he could make the call, the place they were staying was broken into. The combat team rushed in immediately. Gu Zhengsong, who had been talking to his subordinate, suddenly changed his expression. Before his bodyguards could act, the police officers immediately captured all the people present because they had long been prepared.
Everyone in the room couldn’t react to the sudden situation. Gu Zhengsong’s expression changed slightly. He glanced at the monitoring screen out of the corner of his eye and saw an unexpected thing.
On the calm outskirts of the city, people who had been in ambush for a long time started to act. Those at the scene of the transaction were captured in one fell swoop. The sounds of whistles and gunfire came to an end after a brief exchange of gunfire. The swift action was accompanied by the spread of unknown information, and the police stormed Gu Zhengsong’s residence.
Everything was unexpected. There was no intelligence and no news.
From the transaction scene in the surveillance footage to the police who appeared indoors, it was like a silent confrontation. The red wine glass fell to the ground, and the clear sound caused some people’s minds to return.
It wasn’t until the police’s cold handcuffs were placed around Gu Zhengsong’s wrists that Gu Zhengsong’s fierce eyes moved to the side. The looked at a policeman and refused to admit his failure, “What do you mean?”
The policeman’s tone was indifferent. “Gu Zhengsong, we have received a report from the relevant personnel. You are suspected of illegal transactions. Please come with us.”
The news of Gu Zhengsong’s arrest, followed by the news announcement from the B City police, caused an uproar to occur on the Internet again. From a few lines of text, Chen Qizhao saw that all the evidence of Gu Zhengsong’s crimes was revealed. As a storm was caused in B City from this incident, Chen Qizhao ignored all types of news and watered his boyfriend’s green plants.
The scent of breakfast wafted from the location of the kitchen.
After staying in Shen Yuhuai’s apartment for two days, Chen Qizhao was interrupted by Xiao Zhou’s phone call halfway through breakfast. He learned that there was a small problem with the business handover in the eastern district, and he might need to go to the company to deal with it. Special Assistant Xu also sent some documents related to the new results of Gu Zhengsong’s investigation. Chen Qizhao planned to go to the company just to be on the safe side.
“Is it a big deal?” Shen Yuhuai asked.
Chen Qizhao looked at his phone. He looked through the documents sent by Xiao Zhou. Since he didn’t want to be called away by an unexpected situation on the weekends in the future, he thought that he should hurry up with the formation of the team and arrange the schedule. “It should be fine. I’ll go over and take a look.”
Shen Yuhuai said, “Then I’ll drive you over.”
There was nothing else to do on the weekend. Shen Yuhuai sent Chen Qizhao over to the company.
After getting out of the car, Chen Qizhao stopped by the car for a while.
Shen Yuhuai smiled. “Come here.”
Chen Qizhao moved closer. Then Shen Yuhuai raised his head and kissed him. “Call me when you are done.”
“It might take a bit longer,” Chen Qizhao replied.
After Chen Qizhao went upstairs, Shen Yuhuai looked down at his phone. He noticed Yan Kaiqi’s message and called the other person. “Yes, I’m going over now.”
Chen Qizhao arrived at the company and noticed the accumulated documents. There was also Special Assistant Xu standing in the office with an embarrassed smile.
“Why so much?” Chen Qizhao frowned.
Special Assistant Xu said, “Part of it is the business in the eastern district. The other is the result of the Gu Zhengsong incident. The boss said that it should be seen by you.”
Chen Qizhao was a bit surprised by this, but it would be hard to push all the work to Xiao Zhou.
There were also a lot of things, and he might not be able to finish them today. Thinking of some things accumulated on the Chen Group’s side, he didn’t refuse. “Put everything there. I’ll take a look later.”
He first opened the document about Gu Zhengsong’s incident.
There were many container warehouses at the port in the business district of B City. Once Gu Shen confessed the corresponding location, the police immediately observed and dispatched people to the key locations. The police in B City had watched Gu Zhengsong for a long time. After receiving the news from Gu Shen, they checked the information overnight. There were a few days of ambush before there was a strong arrest of the on-site trading personnel. They seized unknown goods hidden in the container warehouse in one fell swoop.
The discovery of these things caused an uproar. The container warehouse was the registered property right of Gu Zhengsong’s company. On the surface, it was a storage warehouse for daily necessities and medicines. In fact, the things in it were sent for inspection, and what was found was completely different. The surprise ambush involved a wider range of people, including local surveillance personnel and relevant officials. This caused a large-scale, thorough investigation of B City.
Gu Zhengsong was arrested that night, and it affected the unknown underground industrial chain in B City.
After S City’s police finished handling the matter, they immediately summoned Gu Shen. Gu Shen was wearing a prison uniform with stubble all over his face. He didn’t have the gorgeous appearance of a young master. He looked like a dirty prisoner. Only his eyes were bright.
Based on his information, the police arrested Gu Zhengsong. Through the clues he gave, they found some criminal facts that Gu Zhengsong himself didn’t notice. They were about to close the net on this major case that spanned nearly half a year. When they told Gu Shen the news, there was no emotion on the prisoner’s face. It was as if he had no interest in the ending of the father who blamed him and wanted this life.
“If you watch to catch him, catch him harder. I can tell you a better piece of information,” Gu Shen said with a cold smile. “I can tell you anyone related to Gu Zhengsong. It is best that he dies before me. As a son, I can still send him to death.”
The officer looked at him. “You say it.”
Gu Shen’s slightly crazy expression calmed down at this time. He looked at the policeman opposite him and suddenly said, “I want to see someone.”
The officer asked, “Who do you want to see?”
Gu Shen looked away, and his eyes focused on the silver-white handcuffs around his wrist. He paused for a long time before coldly spitting out a name. “Chen Qizhao.”
Hearing Chen Qizhao’s name, the policeman’s expression didn’t change at all. He told his superiors about this, and his superiors made a decision.
Soon, someone called Chen Qizhao. Chen Qizhao happened to be in the company when he received the call. All the information in front of him was about the eastern district and the recruitment information for his new time. Chen Shiming was sitting opposite him, and the conversation between the two brothers was forced to stop.
There were a lot of documents, and Chen Qizhao had a busy day on Sunday.
He had to come over early this morning. He planned to finish it early and pick up Shen Yuhuai from work in the afternoon.
After hearing the news that Gu Shen wanted to see him, Chen Qizhao’s eyes didn’t show any fluctuations. He asked with a bit of amusement, “He wants to see me?”
“Yes. He explained all the information about Gu Zhengsong and finally asked to see you. Due to the regulations, we will relay this message to you. It is your wish whether you want to see him or not. We will guarantee your safety.”
Chen Shiming looked at Chen Qizhao and noticed a change in his expression.
The person on the other end of the phone was waiting for a reply. Chen Shiming was also concerned about Chen Qizhao’s answer.
A long time passed, but it seemed like only a few seconds had passed.
Chen Qizhao closed the folder of documents in his hands. “Why should I see him?”
The officer paused. “Okay. Then we will convey your reply.”
“Wait.” Chen Qizhao stopped this person. “Please help me relay another sentence.”
The officer asked, “What do you want to say?”
When the news was conveyed to Gu Shen, the other person was still sitting in the interrogation room. Gu Shen was stunned for a moment as if he hadn’t expected that Chen Qizhao would refuse to meet. He frowned in a displeased manner and was about to use the clues in his hand to throw a hook to the police when he heard the police officer say that Chen Qizhao had a message for him.
Gu Shen wondered, “What does he want to say?”
“He asked me to deliver a message of congratulations.” The officer paused at this point. “He said he hopes that all your wishes come true. You deserve it.”
Gu Shen was stunned for a moment. Then he laughed loudly like a madman who lost his mind.
On the other side of the glass wall, the captain of the police force watching the situation here asked Gu Shen to be taken back. Then he went out to make a phone call. Gu Zhengsong refused to cooperate after being arrested, but the evidence they had was enough to convict Gu Zhengsong.
“Gu Zhengsong’s attitude is very strange,” a police officer from B City said. “During today’s interrogation, he asked about what happened to the Shen family.”
The captain of the S City police force was stunned when he heard this. “Shen family? What do you mean?”
In the office, Chen Shiming looked at Chen Qizhao. He noticed that Chen Qizhao was very calm after answering the phone and secretly asked Xiao Zhou to find out if Chen Qizhao had taken medicine in the morning. He was worried that the Gu family’s affairs would affect Chen Qizhao’s mood, but he obviously didn’t need to worry about this any longer.
Not long after hanging up the call from the police, Chen Qizhao’s phone on the table vibrated.
Chen Shiming noticed the anonymous call. “You can pick it up.”
“Yes.” Chen Qizhao flipped through the documents. He paused for a moment when he saw the phone number but didn’t avoid Chen Shiming. He turned on the voice changing software and said, “If you have something to say, say it.”
For this call, the man in the flower shirt seemed to have found something. His speech was a bit faster. “Boss, the day before yesterday, you asked me to check the relevant institutes. I just investigated and found something. Previously when investigating the Chen family’s aromatherapy matter, several laboratory institutes related to Lin Shizong changed their property rights some time ago. The owners of these property rights became Gu Shen’s related personnel… But news from these people had been completely lost some time ago. It should be in a state of disconnection.”
Chen Qizhao flipped through the documents. “And then?”
“One of them, Yueze Chemical, signed a batch of instruments as gifts last week. They seem to have signed a cooperation agreement with the Ninth Research Institute of S City. However, it stands to reason that the relevant executives of this company have disappeared, and the stock price has plummeted. There should be no cooperation at this stage.” The man in the flower shirt continued, “I will send you the information here. It is the relevant information of Yueze Chemical…”
The chair in the office was pushed back. The young man stood up, and the water glass in his hand was tipped over.
Chen Shiming, who was sitting next to him, was stunned. Then he saw Chen Qizhao’s cold eyes.
Chen Qizhao interrupted him suddenly. “What research institute did you say?”
The man in the flower shirt stopped. “The Ninth Research Institute.”
