"I heard that someone from the military had taken her away last night! Her whereabouts are still unknown! Sir, where are you? Is it convenient for you to return to the country?"
There was undisguised anxiety in the manager's voice who had always been calm.
Mu Yazhe's brows knitted in fury.
He immediately suspected his second uncle, but after a second thought, it was impossible for it to be him.
Mu Linfeng would never do this. From a certain aspect, the middle-aged man was very respectful to him. Even though he did not allow any potential, dangerous existence near him, he would never take her away sans a warning!
"Have you sent your men to search for her?"
"Yes, but even now… we can't locate her!"
"Wait for me!"
Placing down his phone, he retrieved his coat from the rack and ordered, "Arrange the next flight for me; I'll return to the country immediately!"
"What do you want to do back home?" Suspicion colored his uncle's eyes as he lifted his head. "What got you into such a hurry?"
"There's an important matter."
"Hmph! It's related to that woman, is it?" His second uncle surmised.
The younger man remained unresponsive after a moment's silence.
He could tell at once that his nephew's rush to return home was related to that Yun Shishi!
Hence, he coldly ordered, "You're not allowed to return! There's another important banquet tomorrow that you must attend!"
"Second uncle, apologies! I'm afraid that I can't attend the banquet. Sorry!" With that, his nephew strode to the door.
"Stop right there!"
He slapped the table in anger.
The younger man's footsteps halted, but he did not turn around.
His spine stiffened a little, though.
With a cold face, the old man suddenly stood up and left the table to approach him. "This is unlike you! What do you wanna do back home?"
"Second uncle, I'll give you a satisfactory explanation later; I must return now!"
With that, he left in a hurry.
Mu Linfeng's eyes glinted dangerously as he squinted at his back.
That woman is indeed a scourge!
She got him so obsessed with her that his nephew was out of sorts!
It was damp and dusty in the dimly lit underground warehouse.
Yun Shishi struggled to open her eyes as her body shuddered from excruciating pain.
Even the slightest movement would tug at her wound and cause pain!
Accompanied by a hoarse pumping sound, a pair of frightened eyes suddenly opened in the darkness. When a beam of moonlight refracted into her eyes, her pupils contracted at once.
An incandescent lamp dangled overhead while her surroundings remained partly pitch-black. Under the dim lighting, her heart constricted at the moving shadows.
Only after she had regained her senses from the nightmare did her panic fade away slightly and did her pupils dilate to its usual size. In an instant, her eyes had turned cold and calm.
The dark underground warehouse smelled faintly of mold.
In the dim light, her ebony-black hair scattered messily over her shoulders and covered half of her delicate and pretty face. The tip of it seemed to be stained with sticky blood, and there were traces of bruises on her face visible in the cool light.
Her eyes shut tightly with her brows furrowing deeply. A streak of blood rolled down the corner of her mouth as she clenched her teeth tightly. Her lips' contour was somewhat distorted as though she were trying to suppress something inside her.
