At six o’clock in the morning, fog filled Haicheng. A jeep pulled out of the military district.
Li Fei is dizzy and held his forehead. With the car’s back seat wholly sealed from the driver’s seat, the radio is their only point of communication. Next to him is a “guard” but he’s more like “escorting” him since JunZhuang XiaoGe asked him where he wanted to go.
“Major Zhang promised that if you cooperated with the investigation, it would not attract public attention.”
This stiff explanation made Li Fei intrigued. He remembered that JunZhuang XiaoGe was standing behind Zhang YaoJin and the look in his eyes always made him feel strange.
Li Fei casually said, “My home. As to where you should know.”
JunZhuang XiaoGe picked up the radio and reported the address to the driver.
After being detained for less than 24 hours, no one announced the result of the investigation and released them. Compared to Li Fei’s casual stance, Geng Tian is more uneasy.
“This is a report of your current situation. If you want to go to the hospital for a full check-up, we can arrange it.” JunZhuang XiaoGe opened a folder, pulling out a stack of paper to pass to Li Fei.
“About the security issues, you said you’d be responsible for it?” Li Fei is too sleepy to keep his eyes open.
There was only a chair in that military office room. It’s also cold, and he has to deal with it the whole night.
“About the specific situation, Major Zhang will find time to contact you.”
“*sigh*……something is happening somewhere else, is it?” Li Fei lazily said.
A man showed up when the Major didn’t show up for more than 10 hours. The soldier with no expression even in front of a weapon bluntly informed them of the situation.
He can’t get on the plane. He also can’t get through security checks which is the real problem.
As for joining Red Dragon’s newly formed ability holders team……
Li Fei refused without blinking. A condition that sounds rich and carefree must have something else behind it. (He didn’t know yet that monsters will appear in the Abandoned world.)
Li Fei has always been patient in negotiations. He can’t see the other person’s cards, so it’s not easy to decide.
JunZhuang XiaoGe looked at Li Fei’s fearless appearance and suddenly smiled.
Geng Tian’s eyelids jumped. He wanted to remind Li Fei, but he didn’t know what to say. The other side showed no malice and instead, looked like he’s joking.
Li Fei’s house belonged to the area of high-ranking villas out of town.
The jeep arrived in half an hour. With no access to the high security of the villa’s area, they can’t enter. Li Fei took out his cell phone and made a phone call. It wasn’t long before the villa’s gates opened and they saw a black Bentley came out and stopped near the curb.
Thick mist filled the air, and every few meters would have shadows of trees.
Li Fei walked out of the jeep with emotion. JunZhuang XiaoGe’s eyes fell on the seat beside Li Fei and did not see the documents. Geng Tian silently held it and followed Li Fei.
“Out already?” The Bentley’s windows wound down, and the face of Star Entertainment’s CEO showed up with black circles in his eyes.
Li Fei looked back at the jeep that drove back into the fog. His hand opened the other side of the door, went in and sat in the back of the Bentley. He propped his face to sleep and asked, “What are you doing here?”
“Your broker Chen Chen almost got a heart attack and stayed in your house in tenterhooks. I’m afraid that your broker will suddenly die on the Movie Emperor’s mansion. The front page of the news will show the picture of the Movie Emperor Behind Bars version. The company stock price will hit rock bottom——”
The biggest cash cow in the company made Liang Jun’s heart feel stuffed all night.
Geng Tian in the front passenger seat looked at the broker’s black face.
“Go ahead, what happened in the end?” Liang Jun lit a cigarette. He has seen lots of ups and downs over the years. Of course, he’s seen artists involved in some things, but trouble like Li Fei is unheard of.
Li Fei looked at the CEO of his own company and said a critical point, “I never thought that the President’s son is a Major in the National Secret Services, deep enough to hide.”
Geng Tian thought in his mind: Secretary Zhang XiaoJie is the President’s daughter.
“Keke(cough)!” Liang Jun uneasily said, “The older brother is much older. When I got married, little Dan was still in primary school, and her brother is already in the army. I’m not familiar with that kid.”
Geng Tian silently calculated in his mind. The major looked to be in his early thirties which is very rare in the Army. He had to have made several merits and won enough medals that his hands couldn’t carry them. He’s afraid that even if Red Dragon’s Major Zhang has served the country, his closest family member wouldn’t know what he’s doing.
“The movie that will start a few days later, if I don’t go, how much will I have to pay?”
“Squeal!” The broker slammed on the brakes, hit the steering wheel and almost let the Bentley hit a roadside tree.
Liang Jun reprimanded him with a straight face, “Little Chen, what are you doing! You’ve eaten for so many years, and yet you’re still flustered with this. Let Li Fei’s bodyguard drive!”
The broker is in shock, “No, it’s not like that! I just saw something!”
He stared at the thick fog ahead. It’s not yet seven o’clock but the villa area is quiet, there are no sounds from other people.
“You probably stayed up all night that you see things.” The broker rubbed his eyes.
He clearly saw a dark figure cross in front of the car, maybe as large as a pet. Even though the families on this high-rank villas own cats and dogs, the prices they’re worth are too scary. If something happened, losing money would solve it, but he’s afraid that the other side will be angry.
The broker got off and changed seats with Geng Tian, making sure there’s nothing under the wheel. Only then was he relieved.
Getting in the car again, the broker thought of the news that Li Fei just threw out. He didn’t want another headache, “Dean, we already did the early promotions for the movie. If you want to back out now, I can’t say that you have internal injuries from the Pearl Hotel explosion, it’s already been three days! Did you lose your mind? Refusing to work now, are you trying to get the producers and directors to put you on their blacklist?”
Liang Jun waited for Li Fei to explain.
“I’m afraid I can’t go to the North.” Li Fei gave a rare wry smile.
Then Geng Tian stepped on the accelerator but found that the car wasn’t moving.
“Huh?” Geng Tian thought something was wrong with the car and started checking.
Liang Jun smoked a cigarette and depressingly asked, “Li Fei ah, the company hasn’t mistreated you in years, what the hell is going on? Say it, and we’ll figure it out.”
How should he say it? That he stayed in the hotel for a night and became someone with an ability? That he witnessed the group destroying the Pearl Hotel, or that the result of escaping is that he was found out by the National authorities?
Li Fei sighed. If Zhang YaoJin contacted him again, he can’t hide it. As he prepared to find a plausible statement, the broker in the passenger seat screamed.
The broker stared at the papers in his hand.
It was the thing that JunZhuang XiaoGe gave from the Jeep to Li Fei. The actor glimpsed at it but didn’t pay attention when he got off. Geng Tian was suddenly on the window glass when he looked up.
The armed police took and released him with these papers, so of course, the broker noticed. Now that he has the chance, he picked it up and flipped through it. The first page is a graph showing the peaked energy data and a bunch of academic words that he didn’t understand. The second page is Li Fei’s profile. But what’s on the third page?
“Persons Who Are Close To Li Fei: Star Entertainment’s CEO Liang Jun, unspoken rules.”
As Li Fei’s broker, he’d seen fans give Li Fei a variety of matches, and forcibly seeing them in an ambiguous lens in MVs. Every kind of strange combination that they laughed at on Weibo or news articles. But the title on an official document with the line that says CEO, unspoken rules and, Li Fei? What is this, why doesn’t he, as the broker, know?!
In the backseat, the two people have puzzled and dissatisfied eyes. The broker’s hand shook and passed the papers over.
After seeing the contents of the paper, Li Fei is stunned.
Liang Jun’s hand that held the cigarette shook, the soot fell on his suit pants. His reaction was unexpected, however. There was no rage, but he pointed to a line under his name on the paper that read “Black Abyss’ Jian Hua, a serious relationship between subordinate and superior” and asked to gossip, “Who is this Jian Hua?”
Li Fei, who isn’t addicted to smoking, felt like he needed one to calm himself.
The broker who didn’t see the content blankly replied, “Jian Hua? Dean signed on a new exclusive stuntman named Jian Hua.”
“Tut!” Liang Jun picked up the piece of paper and looked up to Li Fei, “What is Black Abyss?”
“I don’t know.” Li Fei really didn’t know.
“There’s a Johnson Brown; it’s a different one with love at first sight.”
Li Fei had a headache; he’d never heard of the name.
Liang Jun swept all the names on this piece of paper. A lot of the Red Dragon members who are responsible for typing it also thought that it’s nonsense, so they only retained the names, with no more exotic words like love or murder.
But these names are not normal. There’s no full surname, and it sounds like a code name.
What Poseidon, Mad Doctor, Red Scorpion……the scariest thing is that a nationality followed after the names. With a rough look, there are French, German, American and Russian; it was spectacular.
“Where did this came from?” Liang Jun recalled that when he got off the Jeep, he didn’t see the file. But if Geng Tian had them——
The CEO choked while smoking and threw the papers away.
Even if the information is from the military, Zhang YaoJin wouldn’t know what’s on this right?
Liang Jun felt faint in the head. If rumors about him having unspoken rules to his company’s artist, what will his stepson think when he saw it?
If there’s no Jian Hua’s name on the paper, Li Fei would have thrown the papers on the garbage can. But that’s the problem! Jian Hua is a nameless stuntman. Jian Hua was not in the scene when the Pearl Hotel exploded so why would the military look for Jian Hua.
The scariest thing is, they think Li Fei is attracted to him. How can anyone else know?
He thought that his bodyguard might have leaked it a little bit——did Geng Tian betray him? Stop it, the National Secret Services who investigated the hotel terrorist attack would still care about the latest gossip?
Li Fei steadied his mind and then realized.
The Bentley won’t start so Geng Tian got off to see the situation, and now there’s no sound at all.
The broker also recovered. He opened the door and looked at the thick mist, “Geng Tian, where are you?”
It was empty around the vehicle; no one is around at all. The shadows of the distant villas immersed in a dense mist looked like floating islands.
Li Fei’s drowsiness is entirely gone. Liang Jun pinched the cigarette butt and looked at them in surprise. The broker’s shaking hands called the villa’s security guards. Soon someone came running with a dog and searched the perimeter.
They didn’t find Geng Tian.
