It was fortunate that Mu Yichen was distracted when he fired that shot so the bullet only hit her abdomen. Still, she had nearly lost her life!
Her pale lips quivered and her heart pounded at his unkind tone.
“Fourth uncle, what’s with your awful look? Did something happen?”
The man only snorted in reply.
Just two hours earlier, his men had informed him that there was a bloodbath in the underground warehouse where the hostages were held. It was done by a mysterious troop.
It was said to be a bloodbath because there were only a few lucky survivors in a company of over a hundred men.
Despite so, they suffered from serious injuries, so a few passed away on their way to the hospital.
The scene was in a complete mess with blood everywhere. He heard that there were few traces of struggle; this meant that they were all killed instantly.
Naturally, there was no news of the two missing hostages.
In his fury, he had lashed out on his subordinates and very nearly suffered from a heart attack.
The fact that his hostages were taken away despite the three companies of soldiers on rotation duty made him seethe in anger.
Shortly afterward, he received the news about the two children; it was said they had left in a car.
There was no news from the five military vehicles, which were sent after the kids. It was only when his men followed the trail on the road in investigation that they found signs of collision in a remote area at the mouth of a cliff.
They presumed that the vehicles fell off the cliff after the collision.
It was dark at night, so it was difficult to determine what exactly had happened there. They only knew that the fight seemed to have been very fierce. The two kids were missing without a trace, though.
Although he had sent additional men to continue investigating, the kids were still not found.
The rare trace of worry on his usually calm face betrayed his inner anxiety.
Those two kids were his biggest bargaining chips at present. If he lost those two pawns, it was as good as losing everything.
His life and death was at stake!
He looked as if he were facing his enemy; this badly shocked the woman.
She leaned slightly forward to ask him about the situation but grimaced in pain when her movement tugged on her abdominal wound.
Something suddenly struck her!
Her hands slowly caressed her belly with apprehension.
It was extremely flat.
She faltered at the sharp pain in her stomach!
“What’s going on?”
She gently placed her palm on her belly. She could no longer feel any signs of a new life inside her, alas.
In the past, whenever she caressed her belly, she would feel her child in it. Now, it was as still as a pond of dead water; there was no response at all.
Where was the child?
Could it be…
“The child… the child…”
A flash of panic appeared on her face as restlessness overwhelmed her.
The middle-aged man could tell what was on her mind at a glance. He told her directly, “The child? It’s gone!”
“The child… is gone?!”
His words struck her like a bolt of lightning.
“Yes. Not only the child, your womb has been removed, too!”
Because of the hemorrhage in her abdomen, the doctor had to remove her womb in order to save her life.
The child was naturally gone!
Her eyes widened in disbelief and a strange blankness settled on her face.
She finally got the chance to become a mother, but it was lost in the end!
“Ha ha… ha…”
