Youyou's heart skipped a beat, but he did not comment on it. Turning his head away awkwardly, there was a hint of a smile on his lips.
There was a huge shopping mall in front of the cinema, and right at the entrance of it was an ice-cream truck.
Ready-made ice lollies in the shape of paws, which were displayed on the truck, were identical to the ones sold by Nick Wilde, the fox, in 'Zootopia'.
Little Yichen asked, "Little bro, do you wanna eat an ice lolly?"
"Yes." He smacked his lips and nodded.
Hence, the older boy made him wait in one spot as he looked for his wallet and then went to buy the ice lolly.
While he was waiting, Youyou felt a chill nearing him.
His intuition was extremely sharp, so he turned to look and found a man's big hand reaching to cover his mouth.
Before he could struggle, he lost his resistance.
When Little Yichen returned with the ice lolly, he did not find his brother in the spot.
He frowned as he scanned his surroundings, but his brother was nowhere in sight.
"Where is he?"
He bit his lower lip and found it strange; he did not know what was going on.
Little bro is missing!
Where did he go?
Was he shopping around at the other stores?
It could not be. Given his younger brother's character, he would not wander around and would definitely wait for him in the same spot!
Where did he go?!
He was so frantic that his forehead broke out in a sweat.
The man speedily carried Youyou out of the mall.
His eyes widened as he struggled to break free, but the man's strength was too much for him to resist. He was firmly wedged in the man's arms, and with his mouth covered by a big palm, he was unable to make a sound.
Was this… an abduction, or was he involved in a case of child trafficking?!
He was a little stunned and did not know who the man was at all!
Suddenly, he recalled the news he had seen a few days ago.
It reported a case of a child being taken away from a huge shopping mall by a trafficker. The child's cries drew the attention of passersby, and a crowd surrounded the abductor, but the trafficker was smart in dealing with the crowd's doubt and calmly claimed that he was the child's father and that the latter was just being unruly.
No matter how the child cried, "You're not my dad! You're not by dad!" the crowd did not doubt the man for a bit. Most of them were merely joining in the buzz and were onlookers; they were indifferent to the situation!
Just like that, the poor child was abducted, and his whereabouts remained unknown!
A chill ran down his spine; was he going to be trafficked?!
All of a sudden, he caught sight of a chunky gold chain necklace on the man's neck, and it gave rise to unknown doubts!
This… was that delinquent at the cinema!
It should be right!
Although he did not get a clear look of the man's face due to the theater's dim lightings, he still remembered a distinctive feature of him!
That was the man's gaudy gold necklace!
It was definitely this man!
Was this man here to seek revenge?
In no time at all, the man brought him to a secluded alleyway with less human traffic and threw him to the ground!
Caught off guard, this fall hurt him so much his brows furrowed as he moaned in pain. A dense layer of sweat appeared on his forehead!
